« 4A*TKIP ACROSS THE BAY [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 8 January 1848

A TRIP ACROSS THE BAY. No. 11. After a sufficiency of wandering, and a sufficiency of resting, and giving ourselves no great uneasiness about reaching Sonoma, we set out from the Embacadara, but loitering much by the wayside to shoot wild water fowls and gaze upon merry deer which we did not shoot at. There was a burning sun nearly in mid-heaven above us, and a tiresome stretch of one straight league at least before us, with (sweet solace !) this little time and extremely long distance between us and our nearest dinner. The earth, parched and hard and the road in advance, possibly dusty; horses were not to bo had, and as "calling for cab" was more a matter of doubtful success, walk we must, and to it, after many grave suggestions, we bent ourselves, with serio-comic mein, and staggered hopes in any prospective glee. Travellers three, on a dusty way. Now a clumsy oxcart would roll sluggishly by, scattering the already disturbed and finely powdered earth in air about us. Then a troop ...

VOL. II. SAN FRANCISCO, JANUARY 15, 1848 Jenny Lind -- We publish from an exchange paper, the following first account we had ever seen, of the first appearance of Mdile. Jenny Lind, upon the London stage, "The lady referred to is a native of Sweden, and is, without doubt, the moat perfect cantatrice the world has ever seen." Later English papers mention her continued and unparalleled success, and the excitement treated in the musical world. "lt is barely possible to do justice to the effect produced on ourselves, in common with the concourse of persons assembled on Tuesday and Thursday nights at this theatre. We have arrived at a new stage of our theatrical experience. A new perception of musical art has burst upon us ; it is as though we now learned for the first time what singing really is, and have been, with all our fancied knowledge and taste, groping till now, in darkness and error. The 'trick of voice,' the well-pre-pared bursts, the artistic 'effects,' which we have hitherto...

r and if the person referred to, could, by inducing public censure, lower the Town Council to a level with himself, be would accomplish a donble object, the one that of destroying the influence that is evidently setting against himself, and the other,that of drawing public attention from him for the purpose of gaining time. But sir, the last number of that paper does not contain, as I conceive, what any of those concerned in its anonymous management, believe to he the truth, as far as the Town Council is concerned. The time had arrived however, at no doubt, the publisher was informed, for the vial of wrath to be uncorked, and for the long confined gass of discontent to burst forth ; the permanent editor, the ''temporary and exclusive conductor" both being absent, and the ci'decant dictator being present. Waving, for the present, the further consideration of lbs subject above referred to, let us pass on to the ISSUE of Wednesday last. The vial of wrath was uncorked ; the VOLCANO bars...
