The Expedition to Sonora. Alarm at Mazaxlan. The inhabitants of the northwestern of Mexico appear to be greatly excited by the rumors which have reached them of an intended invasion of Sonora from this State.

New Gold Discovcrles. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 May 1853

New Gold Discovcrles. Considerable excitement is said to exist at Son or a owing to the favorable gold reports from Walker's River, on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada. The Herald says the climate is the same as on this side. On both sides of Walker's River there are fine wide valleys of superior land and well watered. Gold is found between Carson's and Walker's rivers, and the tributaries of these streams. This mining district has been prospected to the diatanoe of 40 miles wide and GO long, and it is believed to be e<iual to the mining section of Tuolumne county. The whole distance is wel! timbered and watered. Walker's river is about the same size as the Stanislaus, but has more tributaries. Antelope, deer, mountain sheep, hare, grouse, and other wild game abound, and in some respects the country is superior to the western slope. Some 40 or 50 men have already en - gj&ged to return to Walker's river, wltn Col. McLean, where 300 or 400 mormons hare bee...

m Anecdote of the President. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 May 1853

m Anecdote of the President. A correspondent in furnishes us with an anecdote of Gen. Pierce, which will give our readers some idea of the man without the politician. A few days since the President appointed an individual to a responsible and lucrative office in a distant part ot the country on the recommendation of two U. S. Senators, and the Senate confirmed the appointment.— This pratifying event produced an oxhileruting effect upon the successful applicant, who so far forgot himself as to indulge in a 'tglori- 1 ous jollificationAs he was lodging in a fashionable hotel, his disgraceful conduct became the town talk. The Senators who had recommended him to the favor of the President,finding that he had disgraced himself and was unworthv of confidence, waited upon the President, stated the facts, and asked for his removal from office. The President in reply said, "Gentlemen, thij man was nominated by me, on your recommendation, and at your solicitation, to an office under the gover...

The nxt morning, while breakfasting with our gallant friends, the waiter announced a French lady, the de L. an elegant, ladylike woman, who, although somewhat past the* age of love and romance, might still be termed pretty. She stated that the object of her visit was te petition for a place in our carriage as far as Rome, atfd another on the outside fbr her servant, offering to pay her share of the expenses.

Enamel for D»guureotyp«. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 28 May 1853

Enamel for D»guureotyp«. A valuable discovery with Daguerreotypes has been made by Mr S. N. Carvalho, an artist of CharleBtoq, S. C. It has been hitherto necessary to enclose daguerreotypes in cases and cover them with glass, as the least friction destroyed the work of sun and shade. Mr Carvalho has discovered a perfectly transparent enamel, insoluble by all ordinary agents, a thin coating of which being spread upon a plate, it may be carried about without other protection or sent by post to any part ot' the world. Th» enamel produces no perceptible effect upon th« picture, couple.of hod oarriers lately fought a due) at San Francisco.

Flight of Prison Birds. Last Suwd.iy night some twenty city prisoners, most of whom had been arrested for drunkenness and disturbing bhe peace.finding,doubtless, the prescribed limits in which" they were placed not computable with the idea tkey had f.»rmed of liberty and equal rights, and entirely inadequate for the display of that buoyancy of spirit and proneness to li propel" which characterizes bipeds in a partially inebriated state, very quietly and naturally enough ; open ed the prison door and walked out! There was no guard placed oyer them, and the door was imperfectly fastened with 'a common lock and a padlock. Th«y pushed ba the bolt of the former, and drew the staple to which the latter was fastened'. The whole affair is attributable to carelessness on the part of the City Marshnl. In this instance the escape of these men is no no particular loss, but had there been prisoners arrested on a charge of murder, or those whose evidence was of vital importance in any case before...
