COUNTING HOUSE [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 December 1847

COUNTING HOUSE ALMANAC, 1848. An Interesting Reminiscence. -- The Montreal Courier, in mentioning the fact that the 46th regiment of riflemen were about being removed from that city to Halifax, gives the following interesting reminiscence : -- " There is an interesting fact connected with this corps which is probably new to some ef our readers. There has been for upwards of a centuiy a Free Mason Lodge in the 46th. In this Lodge, George Washington was matde a mason, during the time the regiment was stationed in the colonies, before the out- break of the revolutionary war. The register of this lodge contains Washington's signature in his own hand writing, and still possesses the bible on which that great man took the oath of initiation. The chest containing the books and regalia of the lodge was captured by the Americans during the war, and taken to Washington : but when it was discovered what it contained, it was immediately sent back. It underwent a similar fate some years after, b...

From the Sandwich Islands News. A MISSIONARY'S OPINION OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 29 December 1847

From the Sandwich Islands News. A MISSIONARY'S OPINION OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS MISSION. At the meeting of a convention of persons favorable to spreading Christianity throughout the world, without interfering with slavery, held at Syracuse, N. Y., in April last, Dr. Lafon, (formerly a missionary to these Islands) thinking the plan absurd, makes the following remarks to illustrate his argument. We fear that a portion of it is but too true. "It was a general opinion in this country that the people there were greatly elevated, and must be companionable. ; This was a mistake. Christianity was represented as having prevailed to some extent, and therefore the people must have been elevated: Dibble's book on the Sandwich Islands is a standard work. That states the points of their reformation. When the missionaries went there, the Islanders would murder for a sixpence worth of property. That property was sometimes a strip of cloth about the loins, which was the indispensable dress, and the o...

The Blind Man's Treasure. — A blind man having buried five hundred pounds in a corner of his garden, was robbed of it by a neighbor who saw him at work. Suspecting who had stolen his treasure, he went to him and asked his advice, in the most friendly way, concerning a bag with a thousand pounds, which he said he had by him, and would gladly know his opinion about the disposal of them. — "I have at present," said he, "five hundred pounds in a certain part of my garden, and I believe I shall decide upon putting this there likewise." His neighbor, hearing this, took the first opportunity of replacing the other five hundred, in hopes of being able soon to draw out double the sum; but the blind man having attained his end, put it out of his power to make a second attempt. Thanking the most high by Resolution — We place below the following resolution, adopted by the passengers, on board the Great Western, after the storm had abated. The idea of thanking God by proxy in this manner and dep...

CIVIL ORGANIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 5 January 1848

CIVIL ORGANIZATION. There is no subject, which is more interesting or important to the people of California, especially during this period of political quiescence, than that of a civil organization. The governmental torpitude, which has prevaded the entire country ever since the commencement of war-like operations, has brought with it a species of slow, galling, inactivety, which is at antipodes with the character and feelings of free-born American citizens. What, we hear our people everywhere inquiring, what have we acquired by our conquest, in this country ? And we, not unfrequently, hear the natives of the country asking the same question. For the sake of further inquiry, we also ask, what have we acquired, and what have they acquired ? In view of our civil rights, in view of the security of person and property, and in view of all the sacred rights and privileges secured to us by the fundamental laws of our government, we must say that we have acquired nothing, but have lost ever...
