STEALING MELONS. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 1 December 1847
STEALING MELONS. I always took pleasure in having a neat garden. I felt larger than common if I succeeded in rnisme cucumbers earlier than my neighbors; as if nature favored me especially. 1 had the earliest and beat kind of fruits. But 1 was greatly perplexed lor it long lime with thieving boys. Almost every night in the" season of fruit, mv garden was visited, trees damaged, and rich (lowers trampled down. 1 tned various ways to protect my grounds. — had watch-dogs, bat they were shot or poisoned — set traps, but they never caught anything except now and then one of my own cats. As John Hobbs says, 1 Traps every one knows are no safeguard to apples, V-iZ dogs seldom bite one, and guns never shoot; The chivalrous schoolboy each obstacle grapples, And never desists till he pockets the fruit." Finally 1 built a wall of solid m ison work about mv garden; but that did not answer. It was oniv by accident that I (bund out the way to save one's fruit; and noticing in the papers divers cau...

The " Polynesian " of October 2d, contains an article entitled " San Francisco v. Honolulu " in which the editor contrasts tho comparative merits of both ports. After an enumeration of the advantages of Honolulu, with but one serious drawback, via. the clause in the treaties with foreign powers which compels the admission of ardent spirits, the writer gives the following gloomy picture of the state of society here : -- " San Francisco, we admit, has natural advantages of a superior kind. But it will be a number of years before they can be turned to much account. Besides these, its disadvantages as a resort for ships, particularly tlie whaling fleet, are many. The testimony of visitors concur in pronouncing San Francisco a place of great immorality ; intoxication and gambling being the order of the day. Ships cannot preserve their crews when the inducements to desert are so many and the chances of being apprehended so few. Consequently almost every vessel that enters the port loses m...

From the A*. 0. Com. Times, Jun^ t. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 1 December 1847
From the N. O. Com. Times, June 1st. Prospects of a speedy Peace.-- The most important item of news by this arrival is the prospect of a speedy peace, which really seems, from what is announced as having lately transpired in the interior of Mexico, to be not divest of something like probability. On the 24th ult., intelligence reached Vera Cruz, from the Capital, that General Herrera had been elected President on the 15th ult., and that the of use of his success over his competitor was the desire generally felt by the thinking portion of the Mexican population, to open negotiating with the United States, for a renewal of friendly relations. It was stated, also, that the new President would not be hampered with any restrictions in his effort! to make peace. The only drawback on this agreeable intelligence is, that it does not come in an official form, although almost universal credence is given to it in Vera Cruz; and men's minds are brcorning more and more soothed, as the real charac...
