Australia—Colonization and Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
Australia—Colonization and Settlement. Captain Diik Hartog, of the good ship Endracht, of Amsterdam, landed upon the western shore of Australia, Oct. 25th, 1616, as we learn from an inscription on a plate of pewter which was found on the spot in 1801. This,ag far as is certainly known, w. s the first time that any European had set foot on the island. The Hollanders took the lead in exploring the shores, and gave to the Island the name of New Holh nd; but the expedition sent out by the Dutch East India Company to examine the country, with a view to colonization, reported that it was "the abode of howling evil spirits," a country of ''barren coasts, shallow water, islands, thinly peopled by cruel, poor and brutal natives, and of very little use to the Company." Subsequent navigators of all nations concuned in this evil report of the land, and the tide of emigration was directed toward America. The colonization of Australia by the British stands in close connection with that war which ...
Cromwell, Napoleon and. the IValdenui, [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
Cromwell, Napoleon and. the IValdenui, When, in Cromwell's time, the Vaudois lost everything by the cruel persecution of their enemies, he Galled for a collection for them in all the churches of the Puritans and Covenanters in Great Britain. So heartily was this responded to, that a considerable surplus was left after their necessities were met which surplus remained in the British treasury, and was applied to the general purposes of the kingdom for a considerable period. The fact having at length been brought to the knowledge of the Government, it was agreed that the funds,being no longer needed for their original purpose, should be set apart for the support of the Vaudois pastors. Accordingly, each one of them, sixteen in number, receives annually £40 sterling from the Bank of England. The source of another part of their support is even more singular. When Napoleon conquered Italy, he confiscated certain properties belonging to the church of Rome, and made them over to the Vaudois...
Tlxe Robber Joaquin. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
Tlxe Robber Joaquin. The San Francisco Whig says the following account of Joaquin may be relied upon ;—that the facts are furnished by an intelligent Mexican who knew him in the cicy of Mexico : Joaquin was born in the Villa de Catorce, in thevdepai tment of Jalisco. He is aged about 35 years, and has ranked among the most crafty arid daring guerrillas of Mexico. He is chief of a notorious band of robbers now infesting the vicinity of the city of Mexico, and though living in California, has a regular chain pf communication with his associates in his own country. He has been known to enter the capit 1 cities in the disguise pf a friar ; has been arrested several times, but through theexpertness, and influence he wielded among the soldiers, he has been discharged He is about 6 feet in height, and of immense muscular power; is well versed in the use of arms, and in disposition is er.uel and sanguinary. He has a dark sallow complexion, and during the Mexican war was known to wear a coat...
High Water In the Sacramento Vall«y. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
High Water In the Sacramento Vall«y. A writer in the Sacramento Union, who appears to hawe the confidence of that paper, makes some startling statements in regard to the rise of water in the Sacramento valley in years past. We can scarcely credit the assertions, but nevertheless give a few extracts, and if erroneous can be corrected: "The accounts furnished by Capt. Richardson, of the freshet of 1824, are that it roie higher by some twelve feet than any freshet we have seen since the country has been settled. 1 he Indiana at Cache creek state that the water seventeen years ago, rose some ten feet above a mound which has not been covered by four feet during the recent freshet. The same accounts have been furnished by Indians in various parts of the country. I have myself observed, about twenty miles above, on the American river, and where the river is not confined by any narrow canon, several water marks, thirty five feet higher than those of 1849-50, and I am informed that high up o...
Gen. Cass on the Pacific Railroad. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
Gen. Cass on the Pacific Railroad. When such grave, dignified and conservative men of the Senate as Gen.Cass, talk thus about this great project, it is bound to go ahead, la a late speech the General said: "It is my decided conviction that one of the most important measures —the most important indeed for this government—it the construction. so far as our constitutional autkority permits, of a railroad from some point upon the Mississippi to the Pacific ocean. I say some point upon the Mississippi, for it is perperfectly indifferent to me where it is, and I hope the friends of this great object will not fritter away their strength by mere local questions of direction and termination. Let those matters be settled by commissioners, or in some other practical manner, but let us bend our undivided force to the great work itself. When completed, as it is sure to be, it will bind this grea', republic together literally by bends of iron, and by the still stronger bonds of confidence and int...
Science of Candle Burning. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
Science of Candle Burning. Before you put your candle out. look at it.— It has been burning some time unsnuffed, ani gives little or no light: the wick is long, and is topped by a heavy black clot, a lump of unconsumed carbon. Take the candlestick in your hand, and move it gentiy from side to 6ide; the superfluous wic* burns away, and the candle is bright again. The flame of tliB candle is hollow, and as it admits no oxygen, which is necessary for combustion, the wick which it surrounds remains unconsumed, and diminishes the light. When the flame, by motion, leaves the wick at intervals to the oxygen of the atmosphere, it speedily burns away. Gen. Pierce's Coat of Arms. The following is not a bad hit at some of his political friends by the President elcct: "It is .said by the Boston papers that the committee having in charge the building of ft carriage for Gen. Pierce, wrote to him to ascertain what was his family coat of arms, probably with a view of painting it on the panels of th...
Expulsion of tlie Jesuits from Ecuador* [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
Expulsion of tlie Jesuits from Ecuador* The Panama Herald says the Ecuadorian national Ship Hermosa Carmen arrived at that port on the Oth ult., having on board 32 Jesuit priests who were compelled by that government to leave the country, The priests were not permitted to land at Panama until conveyances could be procured for them to Aspinwall, whence they are ordered to be shipped. We do not know what crime they may have committed, but if it be a crime in Eouador to be ugly, then we say these men riohly deserved their punishment: for a more ill favored hang" dog looking set of fellows we never before saw in one crowd.

££9*The State Journal estimates the loss of property by fires in California, during the past three years, at sixty six millions of dollars— more than has been destroyed by fire in all the balance of the United States during the past ten years. A Washington correspondent of the N. York Herald, writes that Billy Bowlegs and his followers have determined not to fulfil theii treaty stipulations to leave Florida. Havinf gathered all the arms they could prooure, they have disappeared in the swamps. Anothei bloody war will probably be the result. The Caloric Ship. The caloric ship Ericsson, which has excited a great deal of attention recently, wont down the bay on the Engineer's trial trip. She is represented to have moved along in fine style, under flying colors, and the firing of cannon. A large number of persons congregated on the Battery to witness the success or failure of Ericsson's invention- - the application of hot air as a propelling agent.

Religious Exercises In this city. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
Religious Exercises In this city. Rev. Mr. Bland, a missionary of the Methodist .Episcopal Church, haß arrived in this city with his family, and rented one of the iron houses of Mr. Henry Dal ton, a part of which he has fitted up as a'meeting house. He intends to hold religious exercises there every Sabbath at 11 o'clock, and at San Gabriel each Sabbath afternoon. It is anew feature in the history of our city.—generally considered as a " hard place;" where fear or regard for the Creator or his laws has had little control over the motives or conduct of the people. We trust he will deserve and receive the encouragement of all lovers oCgpod order and healthy morals.

Horsss Stolen and Recovered^ fir. i . - - We have a rumor, the truth of which is well attested, that a few days since, a hand of PahPtahs stole two hands of horses, from the raneho of Ignacio Palomares. They were pursued and the horses retaken except five, which the Indians had killed for food. The Pah-Utahi are wild Indians of the Desert. They are expert thieves, and are under no control of our government. This band of Indians are said to " J.C, at present, in the San Fernando valley.'
Outrage and Trngedy-Two Mjsn ICllled [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 26 February 1853
Outrage and Tragedy-Two Men Killed and two others Wounded. Bloody as are our records, it is not often that we are called upon to chronicle outrages so gross and unjustifiable as those made upon the party assembled at the house of Mr Stearns.on Tuesday evening. It was the anniversary of the birthday of Washington, and several gentlemen saw fit to give a ball on the occasion, to which they invited such individuals as they believed would form an agreeable company. But it seems that certain persons took umbrage, because they were left out, and resolved to break up the ball. Their subsequent conduct shows that the managers had a proper appreciation of their characters: if no other reason existed, self-respect alone would have been a sufficient one for excluding them from all respectable associations, now and forever. The party assembled anticipated no attack, and except two they were unarmed. During the evening the cannon was carried from the plaza to a point near the house. About 11 o'c...
