Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 10 November 1847

Who would be an editor ? These are th« requisites: To scribble and scissor and scribble, to read proof and be proof against the attacks of censorious critics who do not find a supply of an article labeled news. By the way, this reading proof is no fool's job. To resolve a sentence into its component parts, to direct ideas and, like the school-boy over his gramrner task, resolve them into nouns, pronouns, verbs, and participles, the mechanism of language, to return again to the first lispings of infancy, the alphabet, to strip beauiiful thoughts and divine eloquence of the soul of exprcession, and make them dead, lifeless words ridicufoul with blunders. This it is to read the proof of another. Reader, did you ever correct a proof sheet of your own? How all, that, in the heat of writing, seemed fit and appropriate, stares out upon you in infinite blackness, stale, flat, and unprofitable ! How every line sickens and disgust you ! How common place is every idea ! How vapid every express...

From the JYeic Orleans Picayune. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 10 November 1847

From the JYeic Orleans Picayune. We yesterday saw and conversed with Mr. Philip Houck, brother of the well-known Senta Fe trader. From Mr. H. we have learned many particulars in relation to the state of feeling of the Mexicans, in different parts of the country, which may not be uninteresting to our readers. Our informant further assures us that there is renlly a feeling of doep vengeance aroused in the interior of the country against the United States, and that the farther we advance the greater will be the hostility against us. All kinds of business were dull in Mexico, while a general stagnation of trade prevaded every portion of the country. The only artizans or mechanics who had any work were the gunsmiths — they were busy, night and day, in every town and city. Old macliets — short, straight swords, with which the Indians under Hidalgo fought the Spaniards during the revolution — were being sharpened, and every old muiket was undergoing repairs. American deserters aro scattere...
