(OFFICIAL.) Head Quarters, 10th Military Dep't. Monterey, California, July 15th 1847. Sir : -- There is wanted in San Francisco an efficient Town Government, more so than is in the power of an Alcalde alone to put in force. There may soon he expected a large number of Whalers in your Bay, and a large increase of your population by the arrival of immigrants. It is therefore highly necessary that you should at an early day have an efficient Town Police, proper town laws: town officers &c., for enforcement of the laws; for the preservation of order, and for the proper ptotection of persons and property, I therefore desire that you call a town meeting for the election of six persons, who, when elected, shall constitute the Town Council, and who, in conjunction with the Alcalde shall constitute the town Authorities until the end of the year 1849. All the principal laws and regulations will be framed by the Council but executed by the Alcalde in his judical capacity as at pres...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 8 September 1847

Agreeable to the announcement in the last number of this paper, we enter upon our editorial duties. We are, we hope, sufliciently impressed with the importance of the obligations we owe both to the community and ourselves. It would be worse than useless to make a vain parade of our future intentions, as we are to be judged by our deeds, rather than by our professions. It may be well however to mention in the outset our hopes and desires in regard to our new; undertaking, that the community may understand our position, for from them we look for cordial co-operation and support. In a new and rapidly increasing country, like California, it is of the utmost importance that a journal of a high character should be sustained, — an independent sheet devoted to the calm consideration of such topics as may come within iis province. We wish our paper to be a true record of the times, embodying not only the more important events of the day, but the light ephemera of the hour — a grave companion...

NOTICE TO WHALERS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 8 September 1847

NOTICE TO WHALERS. We copy the following notice from the Polynesian of June 26th. " Honolulu is a free port to whalers of all nations, nil harbor dues on them bring abolished by the law of Istb June, 1847, and the Hawaiian Government paying the pilotage in and out of all such vessels ; provided they do not land over £200 worth of merchandize, or trade, barter, land, or sell any liquors whatever that have an intoxicating effect ; in either of which cases, they become subject to like charges with merchandize, viz., $1 P er foot pilotage, 20 cents per ton, tonnage duties, and - : for buoys." This movement has undoubtedly been caused by the daily increasing advantages of the ports of this country, since the assumption of its Territory by the Government of the United States. California, with its noble Bay, its rapidly developing facilities for furnishing supplies, the ease of communication with home by means of steam, cannot fail to attract the commercial and whaling interests of all nat...

PROCLAMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 8 September 1847

PROCLAMATION. Having reason to believe that many Seamen, Marines and other, who have deserted from the squadron on this station, have been induced to do so by promises which have not been fulfilled, and prospects held out to them which have not been realized, and that they would be willing to return to their duty if relieved from the fear of punishment. Now, therefore, I do, by virtue of authority vested in me, hereby offer to all such deserters who shall repair on board of any vessel of the United States, previous to the 10th day of October next, full and free pardon for such desertion. Done on board the United States Ship Independence, at San Francisco, this 6th day of September 1847. W. BRANFORD SHUBRICK. 17-b Comd'g. Pacific Squadion. ------000------Monterey Sept. Ist 1847.

From Frazcr's London Magazine. A GAME OF CHESS WITH NAPOLEON. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 September 1847

From Frazcr's London Magazine. A GAME OF CHESS WITH NAPOLEON. {Continued.) I pocketed the precious screw, and rushed in to dinner while the horses were putting to. Schmidt was so tranquil, I felt provoked I had such a lamb to deal with. I intend that screw to go down in my family as an heirloom. 'We left the inn at full gallop. A very small quantity of pace like ours provoked a dose. The body of the carriage dropped gently into 'a critical position.' The postillions pulled up. 'We are overset,' cried I. 'God forbid !' said Schmidt, say it's the English courier ! The man was so deep in that dear chess. 'What's to be done ?' cried he, coming to his senses. I had already sprung out. ' There seems little the matter, Schmidt. Back the carriage to the inn, and all will be right again in a twinkling.' So said, so done. My friend the blacksmith assured us he would repair all damage directly, and, while he began to hammer away, like a Cyclops forging thunderbolts, we philosophers cooly resum...

The Printing Office of the Californian has been removed to tho premises of the publisher, adjoining his place of residence and business. Our town, since the announcement of the election of a council by the people, has presented all the appearance of an animated political canvass in the United States. The merits and demerits of the respective candidates have been discussed as freely as they could desire. The tickets placarded at the corners of our streets, the warm discussion, the whispered consultation, have certainly proved, that both the people and their candidates were thoroughly awake to their own, and the town's best interests. At the hour of election, although there was some excitement and debate as to what constituted a " bona fide" resident, and consequently a voter, the rules established by the Judges in the absence oi any other, meet ive believe, with general approval. It is certain, that the most generous construction was put upon the case of all, of whose right to vote, ...

A TRIP TO THE SACREMENTO. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 September 1847

A TRIP TO THE SACRAMENTO. We left San Francisco in the fast sailing brig Francisca, Captain J. B. McClurg, bound to Benicia City, with a cargo of lumber. For the benefit of our distant readers who may not sufficiently comprehend the magnitude of this enterprise, we will premise, that Benicia City is "in futuro," and that this was the first attempt to navigate a square rigged vessel to so extreme a point on the Bay. The undertaking was looked upon by many with much the same feeling, as first steam navigation of the Hudson by Fulton. My fellow passengers were, one of the proprietors of the new city, and two gentlemen from San Francisco, the one, on a hunting excursion, the other, whose companion I was, on his way to Sutter's Fort, New Helvetia. The beauty and magnitude of the Bay never impressed me more deeply than now, while standing on the deck of the vessel, as she glided through its waters with a fair wind. It must be felt, as we see how the ocean king invades the land, bathing wi...
