October 3, 1853, Daily Alta California, San Francsico
From the Atlantic States and Europe.
ARRIVAL OF THE BROTHER JONATHAN.
Continued Ravages of the Fever in New Orleans.
Attack by a Californian New Mail Proposals Executions, etc.
The Nicaragua steamer Brother Jonathan came into port last evening, having left San Juan del Sur on the 19th ult. She reports the road from San Juan to the lake in fine condition, and the country healthy. The ship has had no sickness on board since she left this port.
The steamer Brother Jonathan left San Juan del Sur at 12 o’clock P.M. of the 19th September; connected with the Northern Light, which ship encountered very heavy weather on her outward passage. When the B.J. left, the road over the transit route was in excellent condition; there had been but little rain and no sickness. Arrangements are in progress for placing express wagons on the road immediately, for the transportation of baggage, specie, etc. The B.J.encountered the equinoctial gale off Acapulco; has had no sickness on board since leaving San Francisco.
By this arrival we have broken files of New York papers to the 5th ult. "fifteen days later" and telegraphic dates from New Orleans to the 3d September two days later. The ravages of the fever continued in New Orleans, though it was thought the disease was becoming less virulent.
It is stated by our New York correspondent, apparently on good authority, that Robt. J. Walker will not go to China after all. It is said that the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad Company have secured his services as financial agent in England, and that he finds it more to his interests and tastes to go there than to China.
The Old Hunker and Barnburner wings of the Democratic party in New York are again at war, and are to hold each a State convention . . .

Early Mapping of the Pacific: The Epic Story of Seafarers, Adventurers and Cartographers Who Mapped the Earth's Greatest Ocean
Author Thomas Suarez is a well-known authority on early maps whose previous books include Early Mapping of Southeast Asia (Periplus, 2000), which has become a standard work in the field. He has served as curator and advisor for collections and exhibitions dealing with the history of cartography, and has been an important source for early maps for the past twenty-five years.
The Mammoth Book of Life Before the Mast:
Sailors' Eyewitness Stories from the Age of Fighting Ships
Jon E. Lewis, Editor
Firsthand accounts of the real-life naval adventures behind the popular historical sagas of Patrick O'Brian and C. F. Forester. Twenty true-life adventures capture the glory and gore of the great age of naval warfare from the late eighteenth to the early nineteenth century -- the age of the French Revolutionary War, the Napoleonic Wars, and the War of 1812 -- when combat at sea was won by sheer human wit, courage, and endurance. Culled from memoirs, diaries, and letters of celebrated officers as well as sailors, the collection includes accounts of such decisive naval engagements as Admiral Horatio Nelson's on the Battle of the Nile in 1798 or Midshipman Roberts' on the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 and also glimpses into daily hardships aboard a man-of-war: scurvy, whippings, storms, piracy, press gangs, drudgery, boredom, and cannibalism.
Life of a Sailor (Seafarers' Voices)
Chamier went to sea in 1809 as an officer in the Royal Navy. Like his contemporary, Captain Frederick Marryat, he enjoyed a successful literary career and is remembered for his naval novels. This book, his first, is usually catalogued as fiction, although it is an exact account of his naval experiences, with every individual, ship, and event he described corroborated by his service records. Told with humor and insight, it is considered an authentic account of a young officer's service. From anti-slavery patrols off Africa to punitive raids on the American coast during the War of 1812, Chamier provides details of many lesser-known campaigns. His descriptions of British naval operations in America, which reflected his objection to bringing the war to the civilian population, were criticized by his seniors.
Great Stories of the Sea & Ships
N. C. Wyeth
More than 50,000 copies of this collection of high-seas adventures are in print. Not only does it showcase the fiction of such classic writers as Daniel Defoe, Jules Verne, and Jack London, but the entries also feature historic first-person narratives including Christopher Columbus' own account of his famous voyage in 1492. Vivid tales of heroic naval battles and dangerous journeys of exploration to the stories of castaways and smugglers. The variety of works includes The Raft of Odysseus, by Homer; Hans Christian Andersen's The Mermaid; The Specksioneer, by Elizabeth Gaskell; Washington Irving's The Phantom Island; and Rounding Cape Horn, by Herman Melville. Eighteen extraordinary black and white illustrations by Peter Hurd add to the volume's beauty.
The Rebel Raiders
The Astonishing History of the Confederacy's Secret Navy
James T. deKay
During its construction in Liverpool, the ship was known as Number 290. It was unleashed as the CSS Alabama, the Confederate gunship that triggered the last great military campaign of the Civil War, yet another infamous example of British political treachery, and the largest retribution settlement ever negotiated by an international tribunal: $15,500,000 in gold paid by Britain to the United States.
This true story of the Anglo-Confederate alliance that led to the creation of a Southern navy illuminates the dramatic global impact of the American Civil War. Like most things in the War between the States, it started over cotton: Lincoln's naval blockade prevented the South from exporting their prize commodity to England. In response, the Confederacy came up with a plan to divert the North's vessels and open a plan that would mean covertly building a navy in Britain, a strategy that involved a cast of clandestine characters.
