MAJOR CLOUD. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 28 August 1847
MAJOR CLOUD. At a meeting of the military officers stationed at Monterey, California, on the 14th of August 1847, to express their feelings of respect for the memory of the late Paymaster Cloud who was recently killed by a fall from his horse near Captain Sutler's, Col. Mason of the. lst Dragoons took the chair and Lieut. Sherman, 3d artillery was appointed Secretary. The following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted. It is with unfeigned regret that we learn tho sudden and untimely death of Major J. H. Cloud, Paymaster U. S. Army, who departed this life on the 3d inst., near Fort Sacramento, Upper California. In his death we mourn the loss of a valuable and faithful public officer, and an ever-obliging.and affectionate friend. While his strict integrity of character and laborious attention to duty were well calculated to win our admiration for the man; his kind disposition and modest, retiring manners doubly endeared him Jo.us as an officer and gentleman, in the full ...

F&gt;r the Califomian. Mr. Editor :—W.il you tell us through your columns what has become of the Town Council, appointed a few weeks since by his honor, the Alcalde ; and if nothing has become o| them and they are still in existence ; then what have they done to benefit the town since they were appointed. We believe y tursdfxr&amp;a one of tho number appointed, but except the bare mention of the fact we believe their might as well have been no council appointed, and yourself particularly have been from among the number. The Northern Lagoon, of Montgomery street ought to be filled up immediately and from thence a good waggon way made to the loot ol Broadway, at which point there should bo a commodious and* substantial wharf built for the accommodation of the town and the shipping. It is worth more in tho present way of opperating, to land lumber from the ships, than it is to bring it from its place pf cmburcation. AP.NIA and others. Wo have to inform Xenia and others ...
For the Caltfornian, [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 28 August 1847
For the Californian, Mr. Editor: -- Perhaps it would. not prove uniting to the readers of your valuable paper, to know some. thing of the enterprise of the citizens of California. In travelling through parts of the country, I find many enterprizing persons, who are trying to advance the interest of the country in which they live, as well as their own. Amongst the many enterprises of the day, the laying out of a city on the Sacramento River near its mouth, the proprietors of which are John Bidwell, Esq., Maj. Reding, and Captain J. D. Hoppe, in my opinion is of the greatest importance, not only to the interests of the proprietors but to the country generally. The said city j* to be called Halo Chamo, and is beautifully situated on the north west bank of the Sacramento river, a little above the mouth of the same, bordering on said river about three miles, and running back on a beautiful inclined plain one and half miles. The landing in front of the city is far superior to any other pl...

The of the Press. — In our proceeding number "says the Iris Espanol" we republishcd the most important paragraphs from the articles in El Razonador' Advocate" tli the question aJPfacc'or War, which that Journal has set on foot. The importance of the question requires that wo should give I part of bur columns to the " Pro and Con" of a discussion which we fores** trill be tempestuous now that the decree which restrained the liberty of the press has been repealed and writers can put forth their opinions without restraint or hindrance. "El Razonador" sets forth the question more fully in their second article which we republish/entire, since it would be difficult to give in an extract a fair idea of its contents. They say : — The Republic once resolved unanimously to repel force by force, and determined to distress the enemy by bold and intrepid opposition wherever he should present himself; there would not remain to the Journalist any. other d...
