Hunm.no the Guard — Gen." Taylor, at one period during the Florida war, issued strict orders that no spirituous liquor should he admitted inside tbe lines. This was a sad privation, and caused the whole command to become the driest set of fellows that ever camped in a swam;. One of the soldiers, driven to desperation, resolved to run the guard, cr we should say era *\ the guard.

bowels) IN ALL CASES, WHICH CURE THE DISEASE.— People of very weakly constitutions ofj ten require stronger, doses than more healthy persons. Health and sickness being a struggle of two principles, | or humors within us; the ono good and supporter of ' life, the other bad, and destroyer of it. These Pills I 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 Ibe good requires. This is proved by the tact that in almost all violent diseases ' the patient requires large doses and they often have very little effect ; but that only proves tho great necessity there is for perseverance until powerful , purging takes place. No one 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 tbat these pills if persev...

ANECDOTES OF GENERAL SCOTT [Newspaper Article] — California Star — 26 February 1848

ANECDOTES OF GENERAL SCOTT country honor. But 1 think it would be a pity to .make this man Governor. I think it would he better to send him to Congress. 1 don't think it requires a very smart man to make a governor, if ho, has sense enough to gather smart meo> anout him, who can help him on with the business of the state. It would suit an old worn out, old wife of a man like myself. But as for this young man, I am very proud of him, at much so as any of bis kin, if au^of them had been here today, listen in J^j&tfpeech."

Those from whom we derive this anecdote must excuse us for omitting the oaths of the hero, and tome other matters to give it point. The age in which we live, though no better than that of General Scott, 'makes great pros tensions to delicacy and refinement. Scott was elected Governor by a large majority. He appointed Bledsoe, a man of fine genius,...

(Cal. Star's Sonoma Correspondence.) Americans, and particularly those from that metaphysically mystified, and mock philanthropic portion of our Union, (where I take it "Humanitas" belongs,) are, with few exceptions, entirely unfit to have any dealing with, or rule over savages. Our republican education, and—notwithstanding tho great number of printing presses in the land, and immense quantities of ''cheap and useful reading matter daily flooding it for the enlighenment of our "almost every-man-can-read-and-write" population—limited knowledge of other nations and races, of man, no doubt gives rise to this unfitness, and inefficiency. But yet "Humanitas" makes a very wrong exhibit of my real sentiments, by drawing quite unwarranted conclusions from my article. He makes no notes at all of my "ifs" and "buts" —the conditions of my argument. I am not for making slaves of those with us if they can possibly live happier lives without, and be placed beyond the opportunity and power of anno...

California.--No. III. After the decease of Gen. Figueroa, the right to govern was assumed by Gutierrez, the senior office of the military, and by Estudillo the oldest member of the legislature, or " primer vocal," to whom, it by right appertained, by the civil law, but as might it apt to decide matter's of right all the world over, and more particularly in Spanish America, and Gutierrez having some few soldiers under his command, and being in the capital, retained the command until the Spring of 1836. At this time a new governor arrived from Mexico in the person of Don Mariano Chico, member of the Mexican Congress with many, long and magnificent titles. His first act was to issue a proclamation in most grandiloquent terms (which may possibly have served as a model for some others of more recent date,) greatly praising the do- be known at the time briefly these. It was secretly determined by Gov. Alvarado, and his friend and "compadre"* Don Jose Castro, that they would sieze and tran...
