»iU&amp;lt;:.: We promised in our last paper to lay before the citizens in our present number, a plan for the establishment of a public school in this place. — The importance of this measure, must be evident to every one. We deam it, therefore, unnecessary to say any thing further in relation to the advantages which the town will derive from it, or of our duty to the rising generation. The plan we propose, is, that such persons as are willing to take upon themselves the trouble, visit the citizens generally, and ascertain what amount can be obtained by subscription for this purpose !

The Missing Launch About the last of November a small Launch belonging to the United States Ship Warren, now at this port, was dispatched to Fort Sacramento on business for the government, having on board, it is said, nine hundred dollars in specie, to pay off the troops under Capt, Kerns. The oldest son of our late governor, Capt J. B. Montgomery, was in command of the Launch and had with him his brother and nine men from the ship. Twenty days having elapsed, and no news of their arrival at the place of their destination being received; Capt Robert T. Ridley an old citizen formerly in the employment of the Hudson Bay Company, and well acquainted with the bay and river, was sent in search of them; who after visiting almost every point on the bay and ascending the two principle streams running into it. returned a few days since, ana reported that he discovered no trace of the boat or the persons on board, and his opinion is, that the boat floundered in a severe gale the night after t...

TO THE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA On my approach to this place with the forces under my command, Jose Castro. the Commandant General of Califomia. buried his artillery and abandoned his fortified camp , "of the Mesa' and fled, it is believe, toward Mexico. With the sailors, the marines and California Battalion of mounted Riflemen, we entered the "City of Angeles," the Capital of California on the 13th of August, and hoisted the North American Flag. The Flag of tbe United States, is now flying from every commanding position in the Territory, and California is entirely free from Mexican domination.

Cannibalism of the Ancient Mexicans, Human Sacrifice. The ancient .Mexicans used to celebrate their religious festivals by feasting on the flesh of their prisoners of war, or slaves, whose hearts their priests offered up to their idols in the gorgeous places which reared their pyramidal forms throughout the dominions of Montezuma The Spanish clergy, who witnessed these horrible scenes, which were of every day occurrence before the conquest, declared that this "ritual of hell ' was a device of Satan to counterfeit th» Holy Sacrameat and the death of our blessed Saviour. Montezuma's dinner table was never without the flesh of human victims. That monarch and his nine hundred and fifty wives habitually feasted on the flesh of infants and young children, prepared in the most luxurious forms. The number of persons sacrificed every year in Montezuma's empire, is stated at from twenty to fifty thousand. Cortez, the Spanish conqueror, counted 136,000 skulls of these victims in one Mexican te...

"Ay, certainly boy, but why do you want salt?" "Perhaps," Sir, said he, you'll ask me to eat an egg presently, and I should like to be ready. " "What country are are you from, my lad ?" "Yorkshire, Sir." "I thought to — there, take an egg " "I thank you Sir," said the boy. "Well," added the gentleman, they are all great horse stealers in your country, are they not ?" "Yes,'" rejoined the boy, "my father (though an honest man) would mind no more stealing of a horse than I would drinking your glass of ale." "Your health. Sir," said he, and drank it up "That will do," says the gentleman, " I see you're Yorkshire."
