NOTICE. Whereas the authorities of the United States deeming it of the first importance to maintain order and quiet, and to give security to all persons, and to prevent any riot or disturbance in the town of Monterey and its jurisdiction. An order was published prohibiting the sale or disposition of any ardent spirits. Notwithstanding the order, the sailors and soldiers of the United States, as well as persons of this place, frequently become intoxicated. It is therefore evident that persons are still indirectly disposing of liquors. It is hereby ordered that no one is to sell or dispose of any intoxicating liquors whatever, and all persons that have formerly vended liquor, and all store and shop keepers and keepers of public houses are prohibited from keeping any liquors, or wines of any kind or description in their shops or stores, so doing will be considered violation of this order, and will be looked upon with the greatest severity, and punished by forfeiture of their liquors, f...
THE WALLAWALLA IS DIA.S. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 September 1846
THE WALLAWALLA INDIANS. The following narration of the circumstances connected with the death of the young Chief, Elijah, of the wallawallas, is from the pen of Mr. White, Indian Agent, and is found in a copy of an official communication to the Secretary of War, of the U. S. Government: The most painful circumstance that has occurred lately transpired last fall at California. The Keyuse wallawallas and some of the chiefs of the Spokans, entered upon the hazardous, but grand and important enterprise, of going directly through the Indian country to California, with a view of exchanging their Beaver, Deer and Elk skins, together with their surplus horses, for meat stock. As they had to pass through an extensive country, inhabited by the savage and warlike Clamats and Chestes, where Smith, Turner, and so many other white parties had been defeated, we are at a loss to conclude whether their valor is more to be commended than their rashness of their stupendous enterprize to be censured. T...

From the N. Oilcans Tropic, Mai/ 'I [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 September 1846
From the N. Orleans Tropic, May 7. LATE FROM TEXAS.—-We are indebted to the clerk of the Telegraph for files of papers—we have received Galveston dates to the 2nd May—the Telegraph left Galveston on Sunday 3rd instant, at noon; at 4 P. M. met steamship New York about 50 miles from Galveston — the Civilian of the 2d says, we understand that the U. S. Schr. Flirt was endeavoring to get over the bar into the Brasos Santiago: in order to co-operate more effectually in the defence of the depot and position at the mouth of the river. Capt. Sympton, of the Alert, was assisting in the object, having taken off some of the Flirt's guns, in order to reduce her draught of water. The steamer Monmouth left Friday the 1st, for Brasos Santiago, with a number of volunteers for the army under Gen. Taylor. The short time of her stay was not sufficient for many who desire to go, to get ready; but others will doubtless soon follow. General Johnson has just reached town. He is a soldier in whom our citiz...

The narrative of the circumstances connected with the death of the young chief of the Wallawalla tribe, inserted on our first and fourth pages, will be read with profound interest at this time. It discloses a scene at which humanity shudders, such acts of cool deliberate guilt cannot escape retribution. No nation can pursue its path to prosperity and peace through crime. There should be no departure here, from that spirit of forbearance which has characterized the policy of the Untied Sates towards her indian tribes. Any such departure will be visited with the rebukes of the whole American people. We entirely mistake the principles of the present Governor General of California if he will sanction any act of wanton cruelty, by any officer or private under his command. We know he will not. The U. S. Frigate Congress, bearing the broad penant of Commodore Stockton, returned from the South on Tuesday evening the 15th inst. The Commodore was warmly greeted by his numerous friends here, a...

The U. S. Frigate Congress, bearing the broad penant of Commodore Stockton, sailed from here on Thursday last for San Francisco. The Savannah preceeded her on Tuesday, for the same port. These two noble ships, and the Portsmouth, will give that splendid bay quite a warlike aspect. San Francisco will yet be the most important port in California. It has in itself advantages which no other port can rival. The navies of the whole world can float securely in its sheltered waters, and then the valleys which stretch away from its strand and clothed with perpetual verdure, and the streams which roll into it are never dry. These advantages will in due time exhibit themselves in their full luxuriant force. They are now pretty well understood in the United States and this is the season the great tide of emigration sets there. Still Monterey will largely increase on its present population and business. It has the lead as a commercial emporium and will probably keep it for some time. Its course ...

SACRAMENTO, U.C, Sept. 19th, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 26 September 1846
SACRAMENTO, U.C, Sept. 19th, 1846. Messrs. Editors: —In the first number of the Californian you speak of the fine prospects of this land, &amp; recommend an early organization of a collonial (territorial you mean) government, and the adoption of a constitution, "wisely adopted to the condition of the country," which you invite the aid of all patriotic citizens in bringing about. The perusal of this, together with a communication in your third number, over the signature of "A Citizen," has induced me to offer some remarks in reference to the recent attempt at law making, by those at present in power, though the liberty I shall take in criticising the acts and edicts of our military magistrates, may occasion my being court-martialed for sedition. I shall speak at present only in reference to two acts, the one suppressing tipling houses, and the other that of Sunday amusements. I entirely coincide with the views of "A Citizen" on the former subject; and besides, recalling your ...
