Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 November 1847

Davy Crockett.-- Every thing here is Davy Crockett. He was member of Congress. His voice was so rough it could not be described -- it was obliged to be drawn as a picture. He took hailstones for "Life Pills" when he was unwell -- he picked his teeth with a pitch-fork combed his hair with a rake -- fanned himself with a hurricane, wore a cast-iron shirt, and drank nothing but kreosote and aquafortis. Almanacs bear his name, and he snored so loud that he was obliged to sleep at a house in the next street for fear of waking himself. He had a farm, which was so rocky, that when they planted the corn they were obliged to shoot the grains into the crevices of the rocks with muskets ; and. on another part of his property, the stones were so thick that the ducks couldn't get their bills between them to pick up the grasshoppers ; in short, he was a devil of a fellow. He could whip his weight in wiid cats -- drink the Mississipi dry -- shoot six cord of bear in one day -- and, as his countrym...

THE TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 November 1847

THE TARIFF. The prosperity of a country is eminently the prosperity of her merchants. Agriculture, in view of those hardy virtues which she induces, has been called the bone and sinew of a land. Commerce, if we carry out the analogy, becomes the great heart through whose healthy pulsations a pure life blood is diffused through every vein of honorable industry. The increase of San Francisco furnishes an example of this fact. Within the memory of by no means the oldest inhabitant, but one house stood where now is the beginning of a great city. California before the commencement of the Mexican war, was almost an unknown land. The primitive wants of the inhabitants were supplied by a few foreign merchants. As little regard was manifested for this department by the parent government so little filial affection was engendered in return. Continual revolutions, the utter insensibility of Mexico to wants of the country, prevented any preceptible increase in prosperity. Nothing however contrib...

{From the .V.n- For* Evening Post.) [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 November 1847

{From the .V.n- For* Evening Post.) \N c publish below a communication from a correspondent who thinks that tho California ports in our possrssinn should have the same tariff as the ports of the United States. No doubt there il a very material difference in the population of California, at present, and that of the porn which v?e have seized on the coast of the Mexican Gulf. It iw not too late, we suppose, for the government to modify the tariff for California, if upon nn examination of thu subject it should be thought advisable. Mr. Editor, — Has there been a want of reflection on the part of ihe administration in applying the " new Mexican tariff" to Upper California us well as to Mexico pri-per ? The President exniessly terms the duties to be collected under Us provisions " military contributions levied upon our enemies," which term surely cannut apply to our fellow citizens nho now compose more than three-fourths the consumers of that country , the majority of whom have arrived t...
