THE BATTLE OF EITEEN k trt»iu Hoi«n [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 18 September 1847
The Battle of Eleven Hundred Horses -- Two of the Spanish regiments which had been quartered in Funen. were cavalry mounted on fine black, long tailed Andalusian horses. It was impracticable to bring off these horses, about 1100 in number, and Romana was not a man who could order them to be destroyed. He was fond of horses himself, and knew that every man was attached to the beast which had carried him to far and so faithfully. Their bridles were taken off, and they were turned loose upon the beach. A scene ensued, such as probably was never before witnessed. They were sensible that they were no longer under any restraint of human power. A general conflict ensued, in which, retaining tha discipline they had learned, they charged each other in squadrons of ten or twenty together; then closely engaged, striking with their fore feet, and biting and tearing each other with ferocious rage, and trampling over those which were beaten down, till the shore, in the course of an hour was strew...

Alta California. — All the accounts which we have received from this distant portion of our country, which we are now warranted in calling ours, conform the previous impression we had formed of its fine climate, fertility, and resources. These, coupled with the importance of its geographical position, must, under the judicious and fostering care of a wise government, and the natural enterprise of our people, ere long, render it one of the brightest jewels in our confederated coronet. The importance of this vast and valuable territory must be, to every reflective and patriotic American mind, a source of exultation and anxiety. Exultation at the extension of American principles, the triumph of American arms, and the great impulse it is destined to give to American commerce; and anxiety, sincere anxiety, that such . a sound system of order, protection and impartial justice, may be early established there as shall unite all interests, and beget unlimited confidence amongst the mixed pop...

[Cal. Star's Sacramento Correspondence.] Importance of a Regular Mail. Sacramento Valley, Sept. 12th 1847 Mr. Editor, "Our sufferings is intolerable and cries aloud for relief. " The text I write from to-day, I take from the "Sage of Lindenwold," book and chapter not recollected. A few days since, I returned from a ride over a large portion of this very important agricultural and manufacturing part of California. Your citizens of the coast do not appear to know or appreciate the vast extent and value of the great valley. Should I find time within a few days, I will endeavor to give you some statistics of the number of inhabitants, extent, soil, woodgrowing and immense water power of the American Fork, Courtney, Juba, Feather River and other tributaries of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers.

Lieutenant Minor. The military officers stationed at Monterey, California, have been called together to express their regret for the loss of Lt. Colville I. Minor, 3d Arty. U. S. Amy, who died on Tuesday the 17th inst. We have again to mourn the loss of a beloved companion and an accomplished officer. Scarcely is the lamented Cloud consigned to the tomb, when Minor is also called from the circle of our friendship, and laid in the cold and silent grave. Young, talented, and accomplished, be was ardently devoted to his profession, and most thoroughly acquianted with its duties. His zeal, energy of character and high military attainments, gave every promise of future distinction, when death suddenly terminated his career, and destroyed all our well founded hopes. While he was endeared to us, by his warm and affectionate heart, his generous and confiding disposition, and his great manliness of character, he had also, by his kindness of manner and many social virtues, won the esteem and ...
