ANNEXATION IN VIRGINIA— A REAL TRANSACTION. A few days since, a young gentleman and Indy of Madison, Va., concluded negotiations! which had been going on for some time previously, on the subject of annexation, and the articles of union were duly signed and sealed by the parties, and submitted to the mother, a very respectable widow lady, for ratification, who peremptorily refused her consent, and declared that thu annexation should, under no contingency, take place. The parties got together afterwards, and after deliberating maturely on the subject, concluded, that as the mother would not acknowledge the independence of the young lady, and that as she was neither de jure nor tit. facto sovereign and independent, the only way to accomplish their object nnd cousumate their wishes, was to revolutionize, and if possible achieve their independence in that way. Accordingly, they procured a suitable conveyance, and set off with speed to the city of Washington. Arriving at the village of Ce...

From the Vera Cruz Eagle, April 26. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 7 August 1847
From the Vera Cruz Eagle, April 26. JALAPA, April 22, 10 P.M Still Another Victory. -- I have seen a copy of El Monitor Republicano of the 13th inst, which contains a letter from Parrel, dated on the 22d ult., giving the details of still another victory gained by our troops over the Mexicans. The action was fought on the last day of February, at a place called Sacramento, which lies between Chihuahua and Paso del Norte. The Mexican force consisted of 1100 infantry and artillery under Don Angel Inias, the Governor of Chihuahua, and 1200 cavalry under Gen. Garcia Conde, with ten pieces of cannon. They had fortified the place strongly, and from their position entertained the strongest hopes of being able to prevent the Americans from reaching a point where there was water, and which was indispensable to them ; but the latter charged their works impetuously, drove the Mexicans from every work, captured all their cannon, amunition, provisions, money, baggage, in short, everything they ha...

Mexico, 15th May : To-day the American Division under Gen. Worth has no doubt entered Pueblo ; Santa Anna is understood to be on his way here and may arrive tomorrow.

To the Editor of the Camfornian. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 7 August 1847
To the Editor of the Camfornian. Case of Yount, rs Chiles. Sir, — I have but just observed in your paper of the 3d inst., an extract from the records of the Alcalde's Court of this District, which without explanation is calculated to convey an erroneous idea of the trial of the above case and its issue. It is true that the extract is materially correct, but by itself and unaccompanied with a knowledge of the facts connected with the suit, may give to a casual reader a false impression as to its result. In the first place sir. I wish it to be distinctly understood by your renders and the community at large, that the certificate given by mo to Mr. Vount and appended to the statement in your paper referred to, was not a result of the trial, nor was it forced from me by anything lhat transpired on that occasion. On the contrary, it had been repeatedly offered by me to Mr. Yount, long previous to the trial, and I stood ready to give it, whenever he chose to accept it. (And in this connec...
