THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 6 October 1847

THE WAR. We do not know how the matter may strike other minds, but to ours the following extract from a commucation in the Boston Courier, brief as it is, speaks volumes of sober truth and just monition : " One war was popular ; the party that opposed it ' was annihilated ; therefore all our wars must be popular, and whoever is found in opposition must be politi'caily annihilated. This is the summary process of 'reasoning adopted by politicians generally. Short- ' sighted men ! " Opposition to the war with England [in 1812-15] 'was unpopular. Opposition to any war with England ' would be unpopular. For a war with a foe so powerful ' necessarily becomes, to a great extent, a war of self-de--1 fence. We must, in such a war, defend ourselves at ' home, as well as attack the enemy abroad. And every 'man would be compelled to stand by his country, in 'such an emergency, ' right or wrong.' A war with a ' powerful enemy becomes a war for national existence, ' to a great extent, and no man ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 6 October 1847

Tho Grand Ball given on last Thursday eve, to His Excellency, the Governor, was the most brilliant affair that it has been our lot to attend in California. A stranger upon entering the room, would, for the moment, have imagined that he was far removed from the primitive settlement of a new country; but as he looked again, and saw the dark eyed Senoritas from the Contra costa, tho gayest daughters of the danco, he must have felt that, in some respects, this had the advantage over the assemblies in our own land. Tho room was decorated with flags, (he proudest remembrances of a nation's glory, associated 'in every patriotic heart' with his country's honor and renown, the story of her progress in peace and war, tho sum of hor existence. There waa the faded ensign of old Spain, lit emblem of her decaying glory, carrying us back in imagination to ancient days, when, with proud imperial sway, she was Queen among tho nations, when her royal standard never sank in the fight, and her discover...

Tj the Editor of the CALIFORNIA*. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 6 October 1847

To the Editor of the CALIFORNIAN. Sir : — I noticed in the Californian of the 19th June, an editorial complaint as to the disposal of the military on this coast, intimating that half the force at this place could be withdrawn, not only with perfect safety but with advantage to the country. This opinion is no doubt advanced in good faith, but it indicates so profound an ignorance of the state of affairs in this part of the country, that I have deemed it necessary to offer a few facts for the public, hoping that they may attract the notice of the Commander of the 10th Military District of our Republic. The following is, as near as possible, a correct statement of the United States Force stationed here. Co.

Those of our readers who remember Mr. Stanley's short residence among us will rejoice to see that he has received the welcome of kind friends in Oregon. No one community than such an artist, where ever he may go, gives a better delineation of the country than the most faithful pen. "We are pleased to announce the arrival among us of a young American artist, Mr. J. M. Stanley, who visits our territory for the purpose of transferring, to canvas some portions of the beautiful and sublime scenery with which our country abounds. The field of Mr. Stanley's labors has chiefly been in the valley of the Mississippi, here he is extensively known and appreciated. He has had the advantage of considerable travel, having visited most of the conspicuous localities of North America, and comes in our midst, having but recently shaken oil the dust of the rough tramp from the states to Santa Fe and California, which latter country he visited as a member of the Topographical Corps in Gen. Kearney's com...
