31r. Geor(fo Law. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 4 June 1853
Mr. George Law. This gentleman having of late caused some noise in the world. The Boston Herald gives the following facts in relation lo him: "Mr Law was originally a journeyman stone mason, and in the opinion of his then associates, his ambition ran no higher than to do a fair day's work for a fair day's wages, They were deceived. The High Bridge over the Harlem river, was the triumph of American merchants. The bridge was the key stone upon which Law built his fame and fortune. In 1838 he contracted to build a section of it,, and cleared $40,000 by the operation. Since that time his course has been onward; stern,unwavering, and times morose, he never fails to meet his engagoments, and can command capital to the amount of $1,000,000."

Jenny Llnd. The following recently appeared in the N. Orleans Picayune: "The success of Madame Sontag, in concert and opera, has induced Jenny Lind to determine upon again visiting the United States.— The unhappiness of her domestic relations may have had some influetioe upon her in coming to this decision: but that she will again visit our shores, should her life he spared, is a fact beyond dispute The domestic difficulties alluded to, I am reliably informed, exist, and are becoming of the most serious and vroplenrfftrit nature. Shortly after the honey moon, soma trifling misunderstand occurrcd between her and her husbimd, which has been daily increasing, until her sufferings are now too intolerable to be endured. His petty acts of selfishness, and his determination to rule her as with a rod of iron, have caused her the greatest unhappiness, and a separation has, I am distinctly informed, been agreed upon.

OAira nmonc the Plihw. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 4 June 1853
Down Among the Fishes. A successful attempt to reach the wreck of the steamer Atlantic, which was sunk in lake Erie, has been made by a diver dressed in the submarine armor. He found the vessel and went down fourteen feet below the upper deck, he being one hundred forty four feet, below the surface of the lake: 126 feet is the greatest depth ever before reached. The armor consists or a perfectly airtight India rubber dress, with a copper helmet on the top. from which are pipes to furnish air for breathing; with a thick clear plate of glass in front. The pumping of the air through the supply and exhaust pipes requires the hard labor of four and sometimes six men. There is a great pressure of air upon the lungs. When a depth of ten feet is reached the dress becomes emptied of air and collapsed to the body through the pressure of the water. When about 60 feet down hundreds of fishes nibbled at him At 75 feet nil is dark. At about 160 feet, the water at this season is within four or fiv...
My Wife Is tlic Cause of It. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 4 June 1853
My Wife Is the Cause of it. It is now more than forty years since Lyman called at the house of Dr B. on his way to H. Sir, said the Doctor, the weather is frosty; will you not take something to drink before you start? Even in that day ardent spirits were deemed indispensable to warmth in winter, when commencing a journey, and at every stopping place along the road, the traveller used intoxicating drinks to keep him warm. No, said Lyman. I never touch anything of the kind, and I will tell you the reason : My wife is the cause of it. I had been in the habit of meeting some of our neighbors every evening for the purpose of playing cards. We assembled at each other's houses and liquors were introduced. After a while we met not so much for the playing as the drinking, and I used to return home late in the evening more or less intoxicated. My wife always met me at the door affectionately, and when I chided her for sitting up so late for me, she kindly replied, I prefer doing so, for I can...
Benton'.* Interview with the President. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 4 June 1853
Benton's Interview with the President. Rumor gives the following version of the unsatisfactory interview which Col.Benton had with the President. Like most of the old line democracy. Col. Benton is very much dissatisfied that honest Caleb Cushing has been called into the Cabinet; and being a more free spoken man than most of his party, he very strongly denounced the appointment. The tale rung that he told the President that Caleb was "a hermaphrodite, sir; could perform the function, sir, of neither man nor woman sir ; was neither Whig nor Democrat, sir: was, sir,that stinking and disgusting thing, a Tylerite, sir." The President, when old Bullion got through his tirade, remarked that he had been very much amused at the deep interest manifested in the success of his administration by those especially who were opposed to his nomination or gave him a lukewarm support. Whereupon the "senator of thirty years" vamosed very speedily." _ Young Democracy Rampant. The following is said to be...
The Cunning Thrush. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 4 June 1853
The Cunning Thrush. There is much more intellect in birds than people suppose. An instance occurred at a slate quarry belonging to a friend, the other day, from whom we have the narrative. A thrush not aware of the expansive properties of gunpowder, thought proper to build her nest on the ridge of the quarry, in the very centre of which they were constantly blasting the rock. .At first she was very much discomposed by the fragments flying in all directions, but still she would not quit her chosen locality. She soon observed that a bell rang whenever a train was about to be fired, and that, at the notice the workmen retired to safe positions. In a few days when she heard the bell, she quitted her exposed situation, and flew down to where the workmen sheltered themselves— dropping close to their feet. There she would remain until the explosion had taken place.and then return to her nest. The workmen,observed this, narrated it to their employers, and was also told to visiters who came ...

The Land Commission. Ex-Gov Felch, of Mich., and Hen Thomp Ex-Gov. Feleh, of Mich., and Hon. Thompson Campbell of Illinois, two of the new Land Commissioners, arrived at San Francisco by the steamer Northerner last week, and will commence their duties immediately upon the arrival of their colleague, Mr Thompson, who is daily expected. Hon. Volney E. Howard of Texas, the law agent, has probably arrived ere this date. Individual opinions have been hazarded that the members of the new board were selected in oonsequence of their known hostility to the rights of the land proprietors, anil that hereafter few or no titles would be confirmed. ' Such opinions are calculated to mislead honest settlers. When Dr G.win's supplemental land ( bill was introduced to the Senate, Gov. Felch, i as chairman of the committee on Public Lands, j prepared an elaborate report in opposition to the bill,—and we cannot doubt that all the rights of the land proprietors will be respected by the new Board of Comm...

Cattle. Tr..ilr, oz nnn i x. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 4 June 1853
Cattle. &lt;&gt; Fully 25,000 head of cattle have been driven from Los Angeles county to the northern markets this season—a number equal at least to the yearly increase. Higher prices have been obtained than during previous years, and have ranged from $25 to $32 per head; some gentle cows have sold as high as forty dollars; sheep at 8,50 a $9. It is probable that even higher rates than these will prevail, for the stock of the more northern counties seems to be nearly exhausted, and although many cattle will be brought to the State from Missouri, Arkansas, and Texas, yet the immigrants will be proportionally numerons. Atlantic and Pacific Railroad. We are assured tfoat a company is forming in this state under the new corporation law, for the purpose of constructing a railroad along the southern frontier of this state, and thence through New Mexico, Texas, and Arkansas to the Mississippi.

On Saturday, the Doctor went up the river and stopped at a house 011 the rancho, with the intention of purchasing it also. On Sunday night, after he had retired, a posse of twenty men entered the house, and called upon him to get up immediately.

Later from Mexico. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 4 June 1853
Later from Mexico. ( Dates from Mexico are the 7th ult. Santa Anna entered the city of Mexico at 11 o'clock, on the morning of the 20th April The assemblage of the people was immense, and the populace unharnessed the horses from his carriage th.emselves. Santa Anna appeared sad and thoughtful, and seemed not at all elated with the welcome received. He proceeded im- , mediately to the palace and to the hall of deputies,where the oath of office was administered. Lombardini formally yielded his place to his successor, and the new administration began. About the first act of Santa administration has been the enactment of a law to regulate the public press. It is in imitation of that framed by Louis Napoleon, and is, if possible still more rigorous. The decree forces public journals to have responsible editors, who shall deposit in their respective districts the sum of from 3000 to 601)0 dollars; prohibits all attacks upon the Catholic religion, the bases of the administration, or upon i...
