Umonofthc Mantle and Pacific— Hunt's Merchant's Magazine for March, contains an interesting article on the Union of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, by a canal across the Isthmus of Dor ion. The author refers to the opinion of a distinguished functionary of a foreign power, long a resident in Central America, for the designation of the best route to be chosen for this »rcat enterprise: & Ho consider! that a line drawn, from the bi«ht of Mandingo Bay, (in the country of tL^San Bias Indians, to ■tho Pacific coast; ncar'PaiißmaV'is (ho best route. .The Isthmus here is much narrower than at any other points being only: eight leagues across. Besides, the mountains of the central range, which elsewhere offer a serious barrier, have hero gradually dwindled, so as to give Striking evidence to those who view them from the bay, that this is the right point for the transition to be made.

"I AIN'T HURT." [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 8 December 1847

"I AIN'T HURT." As the fast running steamboat was lying at the wharf at Louisville, Ky., some months since, with fires alight, chimneys smoking, and only waiting the advent of some tardy passengers for an immediate commencement of her voyage down " the great father of rivers," an incident occurred which is worthy to be enrolled among the " steamboat accidents" of the day ; only in this case it was the passengers who had " like to busted" (from excessive laughter) not the " bilers." Steam was up, the first bell had rung, and everything betokened a speedy departure, when two bipeds, bearing unmistakeable evidences in their gait, costume, etc., of the genus "backwoods," came sauntering down, to whom all this was quite a matter of astonishment. After gazing for some tune, the larger of the twain, disregarding the remonstrances of his more timid companion, ventured, though cautiously, on board., as he said, " that he might have a nigher squint at the varmint. " Wandering and wondering at...

For the Califurman. SAN FRANCISCO—A DREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 8 December 1847

For the Californian. SAN FRANCISCO. -- A Dream. On a calm and lovely November evening, a weary and travel-soiled pilgrim, from the far Atlantic shore, borne onward by that restless and indomitable spirit which characterizes the Anglo-Saxon race, laid himself down to rest in a solitary spot on the shore of a vast and beautiful bay. No living thing was visible save the wild bird as it winged its flight through the air, a few deer grazing quietly on the hills, and occasionally a timid rabbit, leaping from thicket to thicket. Exhausted by fatigue, and lulled by the gentle ripple of the bay, and the distant murmuring of the Pacific waves, he soon slept. He dreamed, and lo ! "A wilderness of building," rose before him; a stately city thronged with busy multitudes; its streets bordered with noble edifices; its wharfs crowded with the merchant-princes of every land; its harbor filled with the vessels of all nations. Here the bold Eagle of America beside its well-known ally, the tri-color of...
