OTTAWA FREE TRADER; SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1882.
MONTEREY. Ths Loan- Hi-much of tlie Pacific CoHMt, Once the Guy Capital of the Ueltlen State And the Mte Where the Seed of Christianity was First Plauted In California The Old Mis lona and Missionaries Hotel del Monte.. Grounds, flays and Drives A Realm of Bo. nance, "April showers and spurts of sunshine were holding high carnival upon the mountain tops as I boarded a train on the Southern Pa cific, one day in San Francisco, bound for Mon terey. It was a matter of doubt which had the advantage, but when the former "got the drop" on "Old Sol," the flood gates would open and then down would come the "dew" in torrents, every drop ot which was equal to a "golden ducat" in the estimation of the people of San Francisco, In the midst of one of these treasury showers the train pulled out and slowly made its way through the most uninteresting portion of the city, and soon reached the country with its varied landscape of beautiful villages, dotted with elegant homes, nestling amidst orchards, vineyards and low, verdant hills. The entire journey is an ever changing panorama ot delightful views of ocean, bay, vale and mountain. The hills of San Francisco disappear in the dis tance, and "Lone Mountain's" cross-crowned summit grew dim through the storm as our train gl'ded on through a lovely valley region, beautiful in its carpeting of green and profu sion of wild flowers, and picturesque with its background of mounded hills and mist-capped mountains. Soon a glimpse of the bay opens to our view, and for miles we have its blue waters on our left, which gradually recedes and then the valley opens more grand and beautiful than before. On bounds our train through this garden of beauty, now stopping for a moment at some pleasant httlo town and then away through forests of cypress, pines, palms and eucalyptus, all of which seem to welcome and bow a recognition as we pass, and now we enter the Santa Clara, the finest and loveliest valley in all California. Hem med in on the left by a high ridge which ex cluues the hot breezes from the east, and walled from the cold winds ot the Pacific by the "mist-capped" mountains of the Santa Clara range, on we go amidst the most beautiful scenes that art combined with nature has been able to attain. Here are spots of level plains gentle undulations, graceful slopes, abrupt hills, and all carpeted with a mantle of green, bedecked and spangled with endless variety of wild flowers, intermingled with those of more modest hues, and all constituting a lovely par terre which is pleasing to the eye and appeals with an irresistible charm to the inate sense of the beautiful. Maj field and Mountain View glide quickly by and then SANTA CLAIIA, with its great Jewish college, ana the ancient mission of the "Padres," now entering on its second centennial, appears and, judging from appearances, good for ages yet to come. This is the second oldest mission in the state; it was founded in 1777, and later on, in 1851, when California was in her infancy, the' new and magnificent college and church so much admired, was added. SAN JOSE (San Ho-yay), "The Beautiful," "The Garden City" of California, and by all odds the hand somest of any on the Pacific coast, is next reached. It is situated in one of the most charming spots of this lovely valley, away from the hard winds and thick fogs of the ocean, where snows never full and the ex treme heat is never felt, and on this account is regarded as the favored spot of ull California in which to live and, if there is any pleasure in the saying, "a heuvenly place in which to die." But as a brief mention of even a tew of its many attractions would require a letter in themselves, 1 will leave the readers ot the Fkee Tkadek to draw on their imagination and picture in their mind's eye the many charming attractions of San Jose. And now our train glides on down the val ley, through groves of pines, orchards and gardens, where bloom the orange, the fig, the olive and other varieties, now gorgeous in their spring blossoms. And what can be more charming than springtime in the laud of Flo: -'California," says Hon. Ben. C. Tru man .. Lis "Occidental Sketches," a work that afforded your correspondent many a pleasant hour on the long journey overland (to the au thor of this interesting work 1 am indebted for personal favors while on tne coast, espe cially my viHit to Monterey), "California is the home ot Flora, where almost every flower that grows on earth and in th! water uodcr the earth those that are found 'from Greenland's icy mountains to India's coral strand,' attain perfection on the western slope of the Sierra Nevadas. They are most profuse in variety, most gorgeous in color, and most prodigal in perfume." A thousand different hues greet the eye at every turn, and the tiniest foot that ever tramped around the court house square in Ottawa, and this with all due respect to the ladies ot Ottawa, who, I'm told, are noted for their small feet (?), could scarce touch the ground without crushing the life from out some of those emblems. As our train glides on night rolls down from the mountains and twilight departs across the broad Pacific. I put away my book and pencil and drop into a sweet, dreamy meditation on the scenes just passed and what is yet before me, and then watch the twinkling stars as one by one they glitter overhead and soon myrids of them illume the heavens. Belted Orion and a crescent moon were just visible above the horizon, and the Great Bear in the north pointed to the steadfast pole, as our train drew np at a neat little romantic depot on the margin of a beautiful fine grove, the grounds of Hotsl del Monte, at MONTEREY. There is no spot on the Pacific coast, at least in California, so replete with historic memories as Monterey. Here, in the almost dim forgotten past, away in the early days of 1601, it was taken possession of in the name ot the King ot Spain and named Montrty, in honor of Gasper de-Zuniga, Count of Montrey, at that time Viceroy af Mexico. In Decem ber of the same year came the Jesuits, and landing near the present site of the town they raised a rustic altar beneath the spread ing branches of a time-honored oak and cele brated the divine mysteries of their faith, thus early planting the seed of Christianity in Cal ifornia. But the territory was doomed to a long neglect, and although tho Jesuits were tho pioneer missionaries, by deception and bad faith, the Spanish Government prevented them from accomplishing any good, and final ly, "accused of no crime, condemned without trial," those missionaries were dragged from amid their neophytes and carried off prisoner from California. More than a hundrud years later came Father Junipero Serra, and his Franciscan followers, who again planted the seed of Christianity, erected temples and es tablished missions, and here amid tho ruins one of those crumbling monuments which he he himself had raised now rest hi9 bones, and those ot nine teen of his faithful followers, Here, too, are laid to rest beneath the same de caying roof, the remains of fifteen governors of the state, over whoso graves loathsome weeds and brambles are allowed to grow aud have grown for nearly half a century. Here, also, in the early part of 1840, Commodore Sloat took possession of the territory in the name ol the United States, aud a short time after here sat the convention that framed the first consti tution ot California. At one time it was the most flourishing place on the coast, aud was the first capital of the state. But with the re moval ot the capital to San Jose, it entered on a Kip Van Winkle sleep and has been slum bering ever since. The site of the old town is a beautiful one but there is nothing attractive in its old buildings or streets. The latter run pretty much as they please, here, there and everywhere, and the old tile roofed adobes, block house, tort aud stute house, are such as all old Spanish towns present. But resting almost beueath tho shadow of the pine clad hills, away from the principal part of the town, stands the old church ot the missions, tho finest and oldest church in California; and tho' a hundred years have passed away since it was erected it is to day the best preserved of all the old missions. It is built of white sandstone, and the work was performed by Indians. It is after the style of all those old mission churches, with slight variation in belfry aud front from those which I have so often pictured to tho readers of the Fkee Thadek. It contains many rare paintings and a few of great age. But this is not the church in which the bones of Father Junipero Serra and his followers lie buried. That is about four miles distant from the town and Is called "THE SAN CAKUIS CHURCH of Carmelo Valley." It was constructed of white sandstone, quarried in the neighborhood, and is about 40 feet wide by 105 deep. It was abandoned about twenty-five years ago and all the valuables and ornaments removed. Up to that period it was in a good state of perscva tion. But the ravages of even so short a time, neglect and the spoliation ot relic hunters have played sad havoc with the deserted church until now but little more than the bare walls remain. The roof is almost entirely gone, the altar a mass of ruins, the buttresses partly destroyed, the floors long since rotted and covered with debris from the crumbling walls, the rudely carved stone fonta broken, and the belfry, from which the faithful Indians were once summoned to prayer from their peaceful duties on the hillside and valley, is tenanted by owls that screech their disap proval us visitors climb the crumbling stair case. In the center of the church are the graves of the governors of California and those of the fathers, and in the sanctuary that of Father Junipero Serra. A weather-beaten pine board marks the location of each grave of the former, but naught indicates the latter. Loathsome weeds luxuriate and thrive above the graves, while gophers and other animals burrow in the dust of the pioneers of Cali fornia civilization. It is a sad sight to see those sacred piles ot stone and mortar, built with a jack-knife in comparison to the con structing utensils used in this age of the nine teenth century, crumbling into dust, forjno matter what our creed or beliet is, these are monuments in which we see ana realize the sacrifices of the early pioneers "who left home and fricnas, old associates and the sweet char ities of fumily scenes at the call ot a religion which accepts no half-hearted devotiou, going to bury themselves forever in a remote corner of the world, among savages, tincouth in form and dull in mind, and there to toil In planting the seed of which God alone can give the in crease. These apostles of the Indians are so near us in time that we can almost touch their hands; but in snirit tli"y .. . ..s far from our self-satisfied, lo.:.1. rubbling days, as the east is from the west, and looking buck on the peaceful existence of their days, is almost to lay one's hand on the middle ages and the conquest of barbaric races by the culture and religion of the Catholic church. "And in this contemplation we are made to realize the greatness ot the noble Marquette, when he says, 'A life in the wilderness has its charms, and the rude hut of the savage is better adapt ed to a true disciple of Christ than the palace ol a king. My heart ol'times swells with rapture as my canoe glides through strange waters or whilo plodding my way through thick forests, among briars and thorns, in la laboring for the cause of the Redeemer.' The simple truth, the heroic faith aud selt-abnega tions of those early missionaries aie of a very different stamp from the qualities we too read ily associate with the name of pioneers in this age." Aside from its historic associations, the nat ural charms and attractions of Monterey sur pass any seaside resort that I have yet vis ited. "Its exquisite beauty and diversity ot scenery," says Major Truman in his "l.einin iscences of Monterey," "is diversified with ocean, bay, lake and streamlet, hill valley and groves ot oak, cypress, spruce, pines and palms; parks, walks and gardens," in the midst ot which, "like a palace lifting to cter'n al summer," stands the HOTEL DEL MONTE, one of the most elegant, convenient and finely finished hotels on the Pacific coast. It is Gothic in style, three stories high, with wings, towers and observatories, and differing from all other sea-side hotels in construction. One grand cordon connects the office, lobby, par lors and ladies' reading and reception rooms, all ol which are on the ground floor, and are grand, spacious and elegantly finished. Away from the hotel, "not too far but just far enough," surrounded by grand old oaks and pines, is the club room, smoking room and saloon for gentlemen, where all can "smile and smile" while listening to the sad sea waves as they roll upon the shore beyond. The grounds around the hotel are charming, beautifully laid out and thickly wooded with oaks, pines and other growths of great age, from whose branches, like weeping willow, dangles a greenish-tinted moss. In strolling around the cultivated portions of the grounds and lollow. ing the winding walks or drives one is struck with the artistic grandeur and "fltnes9 of thincB" that greet the eye at almost every turn. The style is after the manner of the English landscape, gentle undulations of surface, and thd natural lines seen in forest growths. Wherever large trees are standing the surface of the lawn indicates the course of the roots from the trunk outward until lost in the smooth surface at the border of tho walk or drive. Opposite the hotel, in all directions, but especially the front entrances, beautiful flower beds, gorgeous with exquisite bloom of almost every hue and color greet the eye. THE HAY of Monterey is a magnificent sheet of water, some twenty miles or more from point to point and delightfully adapted for boating purposes. Ono long, bold sweep of mild, gently sloping, clean, white sandy beach, fringed with a creamy, rippling surf, and all the very perfec tion of a bathing place, with bath house and bathing pavillion, magnificent in design and the completest establishment of its kind on cither coast. The alluremeuts ot shore and grove are something virgin and a realm of romance. Where nature failed art aud wealth supplied the want. But if there is any one spot more beautiful than another in this region it is CYPKESS l'OINT. "Start out along tne Carmelo road," says some writer, "and take the path through the woods. Climb the hill, and resting on the flower be decked turf, surrounded by ferns and groves, take in the view. Adown the wooded slope, carpeted with a'profusion ot flowers of all colors under the sun, the brown, barren-looking moorlands of the Salinos plain rising aud falling like an inanimate sea of motionless billows, with here and there a bright emerald patch of some small, well tilled farm shining like a rough-set jewel. The sombre Gablian range, with its serrated ridges and dark clus ters of pine woods, mellowed down with a filmy haze enshrouding its base. On your left you will see tho blue waters of the bay as smootho as a lake, crcscented with tho lofty Cruz range, Us pine-feathered ridges, the white sands upon which tho milk-white foam creeps and crawls with a slunous motion like some huge leviathan of the deep, surely the Bay of Monterey is the "Naples of the New World," and the whole a panorama such as an artist would love to paint. Continuing the journey you enter a well shaded road, and here and there catch a glimpse of tho grand old Carelo range, and then on, when suddenly there breaks upon the view a panorama ot sky, ocean and woods. The broad Pacific is only distinguishable the from heavens above it by ito glittering sheen, as the sunlight plays upon Its heaving brest. Anon, a little suowflako of foam dances on the molten surface, as one bil low, more playful than the rest, shakes its snowy crest, or the white sails of a ship ap pear, as swan-like she glides along the water. The weird forest, with its gaunt, ghost like, black pines, moaning in harmony with the ceaseless roar of the waves as the breeze plays through the branches. Enter the forest here, aud as you pass through the flowery glades, tho fragrance of the shrubs and song of birds fall pleasantly on the senses. Pass on, and crossing an open space of green turf you enter another grove; the sun-flecks through the moss-hung and bearded trees, creating a pleas, ant, subdued light, such as is met within the ancient minsters and Moorish alcanzurs of Europe. The picture produces an involun tary thrill of delight and from the store-house of the mind rushes a flood of memory ot child hood's days with its ancient legends of en chanted groves and fairies. A few steps fur ther and tho mystical grove is reached and crossed, and you gaze with rapture on the beauty ot the sea. Surely, God's World, beau tiful as it is, can scarcely show fairer spots. Landward, the impenetrable cypress groves, silent us the pyramids, mystical as the sphinx, the gnarled gruy trunks supporting the golden green branches O, fit haunt for departed spirits, a Merlin, or a slumbering cot for a a child of Cain ! The sierras of Santa Luca droop into the sea, brown, barren and velvety, like some dust-begrimed tome in the lihrury at home, uninviting on the outside, but contain ing untold riches under its gloomy and for bidding garb. The ill-starred Maro lifts its dome-shaped head with threatening aspect, warning manners of the dangers of a rock bound const. The cracged spurs jet out in to the ocean, and the playful breakers, us th y dash upon them, send uloft showers of spray, white us the driven snow, while the sunlight shines through the bright green billows as they curl and dash along in their impetuous, never ending race. At your feet the silver crystal sands sparkle in the sunlight, and be. fore you the broad Pacific sweeps on its un- controlable course, bearing upon its bosom the wealth of empires. Cross the point through woody glades towards Point Pinos, passing pretty bays with crystal sands and shelving beaches, here the billows charge in with a greater impetuosity, but well inland they break in creamy ripples at the toot of the green-patched sand domes. The black pines from which the point was named three hun dred years aco, almost skirt the water. The mountains ot Santa Cruz bound the view. Stay and watch the setting sun gild the trees and cast a golden haze upon the swelling wa ters, and then ride home through the moon lit groves, and if your trip to Cypress Point has not been a happy one blame yourself, for possibly you may have forgotten that "He who joy would win, Must share it happiness was born a twin."
