TFreej a BseUm Vtott ] WAS NOT ALWAYS PRODUCTIVE OF ONLY EVIL [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 January 1848

[From a Boston Paper.] WAS NOT ALWAYS PRODUCTIVE OF ONLY EVIL The enemies of the war with Mexico, have this advantage over those who are ready to stand by their country, and to expend their treasure and shed their blood in vindicating its rights ; namely, that it is the easiest possible thing in the world to get up a piece of showy rhetoric, setting forth the horrors of warfare, and thus to carry the imagination captive and give the go-by to reason. Now, without wishing to be understood as advocating a resort to war, except on extraordinary occasions, and declaring our preference for peace when it can be honorably preserved, we are not prepared to subscribe to the dogmas of those people who are in the habit of asserting that war is productive of nothing but misery — that it is all unmixed evil, in support of which nothing can be said by a man bleassed with a mind at once logical and benevolent We are not quite sure that these gentlemen are so correct ie their opinions as they are in...

CULTIVATIONS OF THE GRAPE-NATIVE GRAPES [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 January 1848

CULTIVATIONS OF THE GRAPE-NATIVE GRAPES We are induced to publish upon this subject of first interest, a few extracts from the letter of an intelligent contributor to the St, Louis press, that our grape-growing friends and others alike engrossed in the culture of the vine, may add to their store of information. It is a matter of unquestioned paramount importance, that its treatment here, in California, be thoroughly and practically understood, and we hope to continue, and furnish from time to time, either by selection or original coutribution, that, from which may be gathered, useful hints — or a treatise upon the common treatment elsewhere. 1 I as gratified to see a sensible article on this subject, from a practical hand, in the Republican of the 30th. I hope others will be induced to accept your invitation, and give the public the benefit of their experience in this and other branches of Horticulture, and in farming also. . . 1 concur with your correspondent in his remarks respect...

They say in less than a year there will be a good waggon road from the lake to this place; that this Southern route is by far better than the northern. They came in to purchase pro- <> visions, horses, cattle, seeds &c. &c. There are about 4,000 souls at she Lake, on the East side. The land by their description must be better sowing land than any in California, well watered, and rich, in fact they intend to settle there. . . . : It will greatly facilitate the land travel from this to the United States if they succeed in permanently establishing themselves at the Lake ; it is about half way. We invite the consideration of our kind contributing friends to this, and other branches of horticulture, as an entertaining and useful subject.

A TRIP ACROSS THE BAY. [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 January 1848

A TRIP ACROSS THE BAY. No. IV. Oct. 13th — Left the porch of our late host about the hour often this morning, to search the region of the warm springs yet further up the valley. ¶ The length and breadth of this beautiful and select strip of country, is profusely wooded and the valley oak, with which it is redundant grows (in body proportionate) to the height of fifty and sixty feet ; the fir and pine, from eighty to one hundred and thirty, and the famous red wood of the hills and mountains adjacent, and easily accessible at all sensons, to an immense height, where are had lhardly dared, until that day and its observations, to lift our liberal mind. The giant trunks of the fallen of this "tall timber," were stretched a: intervals beside our mountain path of this day, where the woodman with bis forest weapon had been but little time before. The prostrate pride of these "grand old hills," clung tenaciously to its native soil, though the blow had severed life. We found the enormous bran...

'Tis time, indeed for the people to speak out, when our every right and privilege is allowed to be assailed and invaded with impunity, and we debarred the medium of redressing these in the temples of justice ; the base and counterfeit pretensions of the latter, with us. being but a mockery to the sacred character of law, truth and right. Let us for heaven's sake, have some sort of a civil government, however simple its machinery and parts, or short its temporary continuance. Any thing rather than our present tumultuous disorganizing and totally sans law condition. Had Stockton and Fremont lowered themselves from their cloudy, and selfish height of ambition — had different advisers around them, and organized their government upon a somewhat different plan, it would have been a blessing to California for them to havo remained and gone on with their work. I speak this notwithstanding I am anti Stockton, Fremont, Kearney and like the most of the balance ol our citizens, anti neatly ever...

[For the California Star.] ment towards them is leniency, the basis of which is the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happirness, remembering they are the children of nature, the owners and occupants of the soil we inherit: and if we want their labor, let it be conditional, that they be permitted to change employers at their discretion. For the promotion of their interest inculcate principles of morality arnongst, or, in a word, —cultivate them. HUMANITAS. Mr Editoh, — Having observed a communication in a late number of your valuable periodical, (signed Pacific,) eulogizing, and setting forth the advantages to be derived from the employment of Indians, wherein is stated that nature appears to have ordained that they should be made subservient to the will and pleasure of us whites, being an inferior order of beings — I propose to take a different view of the matter, and set aright your correspondent in one or more instances. They should be enslaved, I think he says, and to ...

LAURIE TOOD`S GEANT THORBURN NOTIONS OF FIGHTING [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 29 January 1848

LAURIE TOOD`S GRANT THORBURN NOTIONS OF FIGHTING Drums beat, Cannons rattle; Killed and wounded. What a charming thing's a battle. Old Ballad. Of late, Mr. Printer, we have had line upon line, budget upon budget, here a little and there a muck of glorious news, glorious battles, glorious victories and glorious deaths ; aye, there's the rub -- glorious deaths; glorious news to the mother who nursed him at her breast, glorious news to the maiden to whom he was betrothed. These tragedies remind me of old Duncan McLeod -- he was Colonel of the 42d Regiment* of Scotch Highlanders, he had a nephew, a young man. to whom be was much attached, as a proof of his regard, he resolved to learn him his own trade, he therefore procured for him an Ensign's commission in his own regiment. On the morning of the battle of Waterloo, the nephew was marching at the head of his company, bearing the standard of the Regiment, before him marched a small drummer, (in the British Army the drummers are chiefly ...

ON The 13th of May, 1833, these now truly celeis 'bra Fill* were first made known in the Uxited States, although in Europe they bad been previously before the public near a century. The American public naturally viewed them with suspicion, but as on trial they were (band what they professed, it was soon displaced by the greatest confidence.

bowels) IN ALL CASES, WHICH CURE THE DISEASE.— People of very wcakjy constitutions often require stronger doses than more healthy persons. Health and sickness being a struggle of two principles, or humors within us; the one good and supporter of life, the other bad, and destroyer of it. These Pills assist nature to aid the good in throwing off the bad.— It is evident that the more the one predominates over the good, the more assistance the good requires. This is proved by the fact that in almost all violent diseases the patient requires large doses and they often have very little effect ; hut that only proves the great necessity .ere is for perseverance until powerful purging takes place. No ore will doubt the truth of this who will once fully try it Let this most important truth be deeply impressed on every mind. That all pain or weakness is owing to morbid, stagnant, and corrupt humors, which impede the circulation of the blood, and that these pills if persevered in, will remove a...

LIFE AND EXPERIENCE OF A PRINTER [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 5 February 1848

LIFE AND EXPERIENCE OF A PRINTER plea for the indecorum is, that printers have a right to be egotists ; they have the right because they are, in usefulness and importance, the "top token of the heap;" they are the preservers of the art which preserves all arts — preserves, propagates, and improves all science; in fine, they have the right because none but themselves can blazen their own deeds and perpetuate their own fame. As patriots, what class excels the printers? Look at the ranks of our volunteers I As you pass your eye along the array, you will mark the keen glance, intellectual face, and determined bearing, of many a printer. The other day, the newspapers informed us that in one of the Pennsylvania regiments there were fifty printers. Thus it was in 1812; in every baN talion the printers were well represented; eleven fell among the killed and wounded at the battle of Queenstown. In that war I was myself a volunteer; and its close found me in the noncommissioned staff of the o...
