PUBLIC SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 21 August 1847
PUBLIC SCHOOLS. For some time past considerable anxiety has been manifested by the citizens of San Francisco for the establishment of Public Schools. ;;, This is certainly very laudable, and we are impressed.with, tbe y necessity of something being done for the juvenile part o/our population. Our neighbouring town ;oa the sea board is in this respect far.surpassing ; us. ; ., And why is-, it so ? We merely ask the question and leave the answer to be made by those acquainted more particularly with the matter. -.V;^,^;; We are anxious to promote, as far as we are able, .the cause of proper education, but in such a manner as will give the effect, intended, : and avert the evils that have grown out of an improper policy .at home. The violent political agitations in New York — the disgraceful riots in Philadelphia of a year or two ago, have been the effects of the abuse of the system, it -would eeern therefore that we should profit by the experience 1 of the f past and enter no -scheme...

From Frazcr's London Magazine. A GAME OF CHESS WITH NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 28 August 1847
From Frazer's London Magazine. A GAME OF CHESS WITH NAPOLEON. " I have played chess," said Wolverdenden, emphatically, " with the greatest chess-player of the century : with a far greater player than De la Bourdonnais or Des Chapelles." " And who might that be ?'* " With Napoleon Bonaparte. I have played a game of chess with Napoleon, and beaten him. Who else living can say this ?" " Chess with Bonaparte !" cried the lady of the mansion. " How droll -- how exceedingly remarkable How did he look ? -- how did it all happen ? -- what did he say ? -- were you not afraid ? How very extraordinary ! Oh, we must hear all about it ! Come tell us, there's a kind creature ! -- do, now, tell us all about it !"
