ME BEHIND THE CURTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 3 October 1846
SCENE BEHIND THE CURTAIN. 'Come, ladies—come, gentlemen, we must begin—'tis past eleven, and then there is the ballet to rehearse—the stage must be cleared by one.' 'Mr. Snooks is not arrived yet,' said the call-boy. 'Shameful,' the manager. l shall fine him—I don't know what Mr. Snook's thinks of himself; but he makes a practice never to attend.' The manager was getting into a towering passion. 'Let us begin!' bawled out the prompter; and he took the manuscript. Here the provoking call boy interposed again. 'A letter from Miss Smiler.' 'An excuse! I thought so!' cried the manager, shaking his head, and reading something about—'severe indisposition, dreadful cold, &amp;c.,' things which it does one's heart pain to think how very shockingly actors and actresses are plagued with. 'Well well, Mr. Buffalo (the prompter) must read the part. But where the devil is Mr. Rant? he begins the play.' 'Mr. Rant! Mr Rant!' vociferated the call-boy. 'Where is Mr Rant?' Where the deuce shou...

The decree of the Chief Magistrate and Council of Monterey, against gambling, is not intended to interfere with innocent amusements. It is against gambling as such; it is against those games of hazard when money or property is staked, which one party must win and the other party lose, and when both play for gain. It does not prohibit any kind of play for amusement, but it prohibits the hazzard of money or property in the play. People may have their fun as much as they please; they may dance until their fiddle strings cry out for repose; they may play their billiards, their cards and all other games of amusements, but the authorities are determined they shall not beggar their wives and children by staking their properity in these games. Every good citizen, and every mother in California should support such a law. It is the wife and her helpless children that suffers most, when her husband squanders at the gambling table their means of subsistence. There is not a civilized and Christi...

ON LEAVING THE UNITED STATES FOR CALIFORNIA. Your flowers are fair, your fieIds are green, Your summer sun hats golden sheen; Sweet be your sleep, and soft the bed Where ye may rest your weary head. Though fair they be, we may not stay, Fate bids us go—away, away; Our homes, the tent henceforth must be— The prairie vast or forest tree. The wolf may wake our poor repose, Fear may forbid our eyes to close— The savage yell assail our ear, And threaten all we value dear. Though war and death, or hunger press, Our pathway thro' the wilderness, May health and peace, with plenty dwell, In your green fields—then, fare ye well. A Scene In An Oregon Court.— Clerk —Sheriff, call John and James Johnson. Sheriff— John and James Johnson! John and James Johnson! John and James Johnson! come into court. Clerk —Call one at a time.

From the Friend of India, Feb. 26. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 10 October 1846
From the Friend of India, Feb. 26. Further particulars of the war in India.-- A fourth battle has been fought with the Seikhs on the British territories, more disastrous to them, and more triumphant on our part than any of our preceeding engagements. On the morning of the 10th Feb., the troops were under arms at an early hour, and the action began by a heavy cannonade from our great guns and mortars, which was replied to by the Seikhs with the utmost resolution. All the ammunition of the mortars is stated to have been expended in two hours; and then the Seikhs manned their works, and our troops advanced to attack them at the point of the bayonet. It will not escape remark that throughout this war, we have unfortunately been weakest; the enemy strongest in artillery; that our casualties have been chiefly occasioned by the superiority of the enemy's guns, and that our triumphs have been achieved by the bayonet, and the unflinching courage with which it was wielded. On the present occa...
Front the Honolulu Frit fid [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 10 October 1846
From the Honolulu Friend. Loss of The American Whale ship Konohasset. -- The Konohassett was formerly a merchant ship, belonging to Boston, of 426 tons register. She sailed from Sag Harbor, December 6th, 1845, on her first whaling voyage, at an expense of ship and outfit of $40,000, being insured for $30,000, a part in Boston and the remainder in New York. On the passage out she took no oil, recruited at Lahaina, and left there for the North West Coast 17th May. For an account of the disaster we furnish the following minutes of a journal kept by Captain Worth: May 24, 1 o'clock in the morning, ship K. under all sail before the wind, going at the rate of 5 knots, struck upon a coral reef which is not down upon any chart, it being full low water was very smooth. When the tide turned, the swell came in, and the ship bilged in two hours. We were obliged to leave the ship in our boats with a little bread and water. At daylight no land in sight. Sun one hour high, we boarded the ship and ...
REFLEXIONES SOBRE EL ESTADO PASADO, PRESENTE Y FUTURO DE LA CALIFORNIA, POR UN PAISANO [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 10 October 1846
REFLEXIONES SOBRE EL ESTADO PASADO, PRESENTE Y FUTURO DE LA CALIFORNIA, POR UN PAISANO . En diferentes epocas durante los ultimos ocho años, el grito popular en este territorio ha sido, "California libre.' Ahora ocho años, se hizo en Monterey una bandera independiente, y se seña!ó el dia y la hora para izarla, habiendo e arriado el pabellon megicano como en triunfo; mas al ultimo momento, la prudencia afortunadamente dictó, que seria iqualmente agradable y mucho mas seguro para los Gefes del pais, el quedarse bajo la bandera megicana que bajo la nueva. Hace ya quince años que los Californios comenzaron á gobernarse por si mismos, tomando al principio una parte, y posteriortnente todos los asuntos del Departamento en sus manos. Durante este tiempo, los Empleados megicanos han mandado tambien varias veces; y a cada cambio de Gobierno, al pueblo sele ha dicho, que en adelante reinaria la paz y la abundancia, y que todas sus bendiciones concomitantes seguirian. ¡Cuan frecuentes y cuan d...
