Lines written for the California Star. I. ; Far o'er the blue horizon's bound. It* silvery course a river wound ; Now glancing in the sun's broad beam, Now lost in woods of richest green ; Whilst further -till the eye could catch, The outline of the mountain peaks, Whose towering summit* lading day. Had changed from azure to a gray/ Nearer at hand the waters broke, From oat a grove of spreading oaks ; Rippling and sparkling as they played. By sunny bank or shadowy glade— Now rolling on with steady tide, Now glancing o'er tho rapids wide, Till where it meets the mossy rocks, That rear their heads as if to mock, The angry waves that boil and dash - - ; And into foam their billows lashIt seems a moment to delay, Their murmuring — hurries on its way, Till rolling o'er the craggy strep. It mingles with the lake beneath, Roaring and foaming as it goes, Then calmly staking to repose, ii Whilst yet I mused, the ruddy glow, Had faded from the mountains brow. And as I marked the deepening sha...

Was this the object of his mission, his reception, report says, was anything but flattering after his inglorious escape from Mesa plains, in the south. The General was given to understand that his brethren in Mexico could barely contest Mexico soil, and be the consequences what they may, no assistance could bo rendered. His return is but with friendly, and conciliatory professions, quite different from the anticipated triumphant entry, crazing the common brain of his countrymen south, and furnishing sweetest sol ice in the favorite tuneful melody — " Poco tiempo veni Castro," &c, chaunted by half the entire population of the lower country.

(Cal, bWt s'>uoum Ttwpond [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 22 January 1848

(Cal, bWt s'>uoum Ttwpond Sonoma, January, 1848. Mr. Editor. "Mark Antony" in your '. No. 51, complains very justly of what we have all long been aware, that this country since the United - States flag was hoisted over it, has been in a sad state of disorganization; and particularly as regards the judiciary. Indeed sir, we have had no government at all durinr this period, unless the inefficient mongrel military rule exercised over us, be termed such. Mark's complaint about a portion of the Alcaldes refusing to take cognizance of cases over $100, was applicable, for a time, to our first magistrate of this district ; and was oc. casioned by reason of the Governor's inform ing him some months since that a new. organization of the judicial system was -to be made soon, when some higher courts would be established. In view of this, and Wing aware that Alcaldes in the country former I v, could only give judgement for that amount and under—Judge Hoggs declined for a season admitt...

A TRIP ACROSS THE BAY. not altogether to blame in the former eVil which, bad as it is, must be borne. Leaving the grounds of the desolate, timeworn tenement of Gen. V. and ''charging' through the card, we emerged, in full moonlight, upon a large level country, and entered a scattering growth of timber of good proportions. We were in Napa Valley, and without accident, or even incident, and within an hour from leaving the ranch, we alighted at the door of the aged and hospitable farmer Y. and were instantly welcomed in. [For the California Star.] Mr. Editor.— Having witnessed some in. stances of melancholy destitution, of individuals laboring under maladies, peculiar to the valley of the Sacramento at certain periods may I solicit a corner of your valuable journal for insertion of a few remarks, which may have the effect of attracting the sympathy of our fellow citizens. We, I understand, have a school house erected, or in progress of erection we have a reception for criminals establi...
