Th« Indiana Again. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 2 April 1853
Th« Indiana Again. We last week published two communications on the subject of the recent thieving incursions of the I'ah Utahs in this county; one from Mr \Wilson, the Government agent, the other from a gentleman who has suffered by the loss of atqck, giving an account of the stealing of a cavallada of horses from Col. Williams. This week, also, reports have been every day brought into town of continued robberies, but so vague and indefinite are most of them, that we do not care to puublish all the dotails- We nil know this, howeaer, that the depredations of the Indians are a great annoyance to our farmers; that they are fast draining the wealth of the county in more respects than one, not only in the amount of stoc&lt;c stolen, but the insecurity which is felt by all is a great hindrance .to successful farming and grazing operations, and occasions an additional expense in the care ot the animals. We have suffered a long time from this source, touring which we have had seve...
Oar Mailt, ' [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 2 April 1853
Oar Mailt, ' "Long looked for, come at last." Sure enough our newspaper mail came straggling along last Monday, about twenty days after the time it have arrived,according to what purports to be the mail arro ngement for California. The letters came in a few days ahead. The news (!) of which M-e are in tho receipt by this most graoious arrival, has a very ancient and fishlike smojl, and will hardly bear recounting, inasmuch as .most of our readers have read and digested it long since. The papers can be made available as wrappers, and the letters are of eorao little interest, for they inform us of the well being of our friends some four months ago, and for even that drop of comfort we should be most grateful. The mail steamships have lately got into a habit of passing San Diego on their upward trips without stopping, taking the mails for the Southern portion of the State to San Francisco and the Lord knows where else besides, and from thence sending them down here either by the mail o...

ARRIVAL OP THE GOLIAH. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 2 April 1853
ARRIVAL OP THE GOLIAH. The Goliah arrived at San Pedro yesterday, with Saa Francisco dates to the 26th ult. Sereral arrivals from the States are noticed in the papers, but the news is devoid of special interest, and we have no room for a»y details this week. By the next mail we may expect to hear of the organization of the new Cabinet, and all about the inauguration of President Pierce. The Legislature spends most of its time in discussing Water Lot and Port Warden Bills, which affect particularly Saii Francisco. The Convention Bill was to have been the order of the day for Tuesday last, in the Assembly. We copy a few paragraphs which may interest some of our readers. IN THE ASSEMBLY, Mr - . Brush, from the Committee on Elections, reported a resolution that the seat occupied by C.R.V. Lee, the member for Santa Barbara, be declared vscant, and that Messrs Huse and G'ovarrubias are the legally elected members of the House from the County of Santa Barbara. The question on the adoption ...
