WE are growing old [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 18 January 1849

WE are growing old BY FRANCIS BROWN We are growing old ; how the thought will rise When a glance is backward east. On some lomg-remembered spot lies In the silence of the past : It may be the shrine of our early vows, Or the tomb of early fears ; But is seems like a far-off isle to us, In the stormy sea of years. Oh, wide and wild are the waves that part Our steps from its greenness now, And we miss the joy of many a heart, And the light of many a brow ; For deep o'er many a stately bark Have the whelming billows rolled, That steered with us from that early mark — Oh, friends, we are growing old. Old in the dimnem and the dust Of our daily toil* and cure* — Old in the wrecks of love and trust, Which our burdened mem'ry bears: Each form may wear to the passing gaze The bloom of life's freshness yet, And beams may brighten our latter days, Which the morning never met. But oh, the changes we have seen, In the far and winding way ; The graves in our path that have grown green, And the l...

OFFICIAL. NOTICE HAVING been informed from various sources, of the great suffering and needy condition of many of those deluded and thoughtless persons, who in violation of their plighted faith to their country, have deserted from the Pacific squadron, since the 9th day of October of this year; and who are now paying the penalty of their transgression, under the combined suffering of disease, famine and exposure to an inclement winter; and that many of said deserters, truly repenting their rush and ill-judged act of desertion, would return to their allegiance and their ships, but for the fear of the penalty which the laws might impose, I do hereby say to all such persons, who are chargeable with no other offence against the laws of the Navy than that of desertion — great as is the enormity — return immediately, in your duty, and you will have no cause to regret your confidence in my clemency and forbearance. THO'S AP. C. JONES, Commander in Chief, U. S. Naval forces, Pacific Ocean. ...

TO TUB IWIC. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 25 January 1849

TO THE PUBLIC. The Corresponding Committee for this District, appointed by the meeting in favor of a Provisional Government held in this place in December last, have received various verbal and written communications recommending a postponement of the assembling of the Convention until the first of May, 1849. They have been credibly informed that it is impossible for the southern portion of the Territory to be represented in the convention, if it assemble on the filth of March as proposed, inasmuch as the state of the roads is such as to make it highly probable that the intelligence of the intended assembling of such convention, will not be generally diffused by that time. They have also reason to believe that the Congress of the United States will pass a bill at this session, establishing a territorial government in California, but that such bill will not pass until late in the session. In view of these facts, and believing it to be expected of them, the committee recommend, for th...

THE CONVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 25 January 1849

THE CONVENTION. Our readers will perceive in our columns this week a recommendation by the corresponding committee of this District, in consequence of many verbal and written applications, that the day of the assembling of the proposed Provisional Government convention, be postponed to Tuesday the first day of May, 1849. The first meeting in favor of a Provisional Government, was held in the Pueblo de San Jose on the eleventh of December, 1848. That meeting recommended that the convention assemble on the second Monday of January, 1849. The second meeting was held in San Francisco, on the 21st December, 1848, and that meeting recommended that the convention assemble at the Pueblo de San Jose on Monday the 5th day of March, 1849. The question of time was long debated by the committee who drafted the resolutions of the San Francisco meeting, and it was firmly believed at the time, that a sufficiently late date had been fixed upon. Subsequent experience and events, however, have convinc...

TIIK TOWN CUI'Nt'IL—AGAIN". [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 25 January 1849

THE TOWN COUNCIL — AGAIN. We trust our readers will pardon us for again recurring to this subject. We have heretofore expressed our opinions at length, and we only wish now to remark that the dilemma in which the town is placed by the factious and wrong proceedings of the old council and its friends, is an unenviable one. We are likely to lose months — precious months — in wrangling. And this too, at a time when the town is without money, when we have no police, no organization for preventing and extinguishing fires, no jail, no court or courts for the proper trial and punishment of offenders, but few executive officers, no completed wharves, and no municipal regulations for preserving order, collecting revenue, and rendering life and property secure. We have endeavored to show heretofore, upon whom the responsibility of this state of things should fall, and we trust the public will not forget it. Let the men who have persisted in a wrong course at all hazards, be made to feel that ...

From thr South. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 25 January 1849

From the South. Arrest, trial, and execution of the San Miguel Murderers. By the military courier from Monterey, who arrived here on the 22d inst., we have received the following particulars of the condign punishment of the perpetrators of the barbarous murders at San Miguel: Monterey, Cal, Jan. 13, 1849 "The mail rider south, named Pearson, returned last evening from Dana's. He waited there three days for the mail from Los Angeles, but it did not come; so he returned with no written mail, but considerable gossip, amounting to this — Lieut. Ord, with his party, together with some rancheros, who were aiding him in his pursuit of the famous San Miguel murderers, came upon the fugitives this side of Santa Barbara, where the road lays upon the sea beach. — They resisted their arrest, and in the affray one of the murderers was killed, three captured, and one took to the sea, swimming beyond the range of fire-arms. He was repeatedly fired at, and at last, upon a signal being made to him, ...

' From t'liifc. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 25 January 1849

From Chile. By the arrival of the ship Ann McKim, 51 days from Valparaiso and 29 from Guayaquil, we have received a copy of EI Mercurio, of November 30, 1848. There is no news of importance, if we except the fact that great excitement exists along the whole western coast of South America in relation to the California gold mines. Great numbers of people ara preparing to remove here, and vessels yet to arrive from the United States are advertised to take passengers. The Ann McKim brings some sixty passengers, and the Thili about thirty, a very respectable earnest of what we are to expect by the numerous vessels now on their way here, and which are daily expected to arrive. By the latest reliable accounts, one of the ocean steamers intended to ply between San Francisco and Panama, was daily expected at Callao. We may therefore look for her arrival here about the middle of February,or certainly by the first of March. The British consul at Valparaiso notified the authorities there, that ...
