Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 September 1847
As Americans, residing in a conquered Territory, our situation is a peculiar one. We are here by the rtight of the strong arm. We have no law for our protection, but the efficient law of military authority. Our election, a few days since, was not the fiat of the people, but the favor of the Governor. This may seem an evil to those who, occasionally, have been made to understand that they were an essential unit in the aggregate of a popular election. It is a check to those who would declaim loudest about popular rights, or to those who would stoop lowest to bask in the sunshine of popular favor. In the history of our government, we have no precedent of the situation as citizens that we exhibit today. We have been so accustomed, from childhood, to hear of administrations overthrown, abuses corrected, law-makers appointed by the ballot box, that we scarce believe in the virtue of anything else. When California shall become the property ofthe United States, either by treaty or purchase,...

INTERESTING FROM THE EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 22 September 1847
INTERESTING FROM THE EMIGRATION. Mr. S. Brannan, publisher of this paper after an absence of nearly six months, arrived at this place on Friday morning last, 28 days from Fort Hall. By him we learn that the emigration to this country, this year will not exceed ninety waggons. An advance company of about twenty-five waggons, is supposed to be now on Truckey's Lake, while the most tardive, are in all probability at least 150 miles from the sink of Mary's River. The backward waggons, without brisk travel, may find their mountain road obstructed by the snows, fear is already entertained for their safe arrival. Mr. Brannan informs us that the emigration to Oregon was still "rolling on;" that up to the 18th day of Aug., seven hundred and seventy waggons had passed Fort Hall, and before the expiration of the month, many more were expected. Of the "Mormon emigration," there had arrived at the great Salt Lake, up to August 7th, 480 souls. This body, for the most part males, is but an advance...
