Gathrred Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 1 April 1850

Gathered Flowers. Ed for the Sacramento Transcript.] BY THRENDOS. f the most remarkable poets of the time is Ferdinand Freiligrath; ret not from the sweetness of his -not from the vastness of his genius om the depth and soundness of his but from the singularity of the ound which he throws the bright his poetical diction. His scenes ly laid in some land distant from fair Germany. He revels in all the f a poetical imagination among the ids of Africa, — among the snow clad is and boiling springs of Iceland, and ild, heaving Ocean. He shouts in ;eing the shaggy lion leap upon the he nimble giraffe, flesh bis claws in led hide of his victim, and dart off death chase over the torrid plains :d Africa. He delights in anything look long among his poems for rmth or cooling shade,we meet every rid heat and freezing cold; and if he these two extremes in close juxtand bring out a sharp contrast his m seems completely gained. One nk he had travelled long and far, he had spent his life among the d...

Letter f»om the Diggings. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 1 April 1850

Letter f»om the Diggings. The following letter from our associate while we were in the diggings, although not intended for the public, contains so much of general interest that we take the liberty of laying it before our readers. It was written by Mr. G. Cumming Weld, a gentleman well known in the States as the California correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce. Mr. W. has been engaged in Jigging some six months, and his experience and judgment render his statements of much value to those who wish to try their luck in the placers. Auburn Dry Diggings, North Fork, March, 1850. G. Kenyon Fitch, Esq.— Dear Sir:— ln fulfilment of the promise which I made when you left these diggings, I embrace a leisure hour to give you a few items which may not prove uninteresting to those of your friends who purpose visiting the diggings the coming season. Auburn is in statu quo — those who passed the winter in its vicinity having pulled up stakes and started off up the Forks — though that t...

The Commercial Prospects of California. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 1 April 1850

The Commercial Prospects of California. The purchase of this country by the Uni ted States, at the cost of so much blood and i treasure, shows the light in which our cumjmercial position was viewed by the enterprising administration of Mr. Polk; for at.that period, before the discovery of the rich mines of the interior, the principal object for the acquisition of this portion of the Pacific coast was a commercial one. Subsequent events have turned the attention of nations in this direction, and in the midst of the nineteenth century a new field of enterprise has been discovered, which must form an era in the history of commerce. From the earliest ages to the present time, the laws of trade have been subject to change and improvement, as the ingenuity of man gradually overcame difficulties and developed new resources. The discovery of the American continent was the commencement of a commercial revolution which has been progressing for over three hundred years, and which has yet its m...

Introductory. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 1 April 1850

Introductory. The opening of a new paper is like the planting of a tree. The hopes of many hearts cluster around it. The anxious mind labors over it, by night and by day, and the watchful eye guards it, as, in its youth, it struggles into life. Encouraging words and the helping hand of its friends fall like rain drops around it, and the approving smile of the public steals in, like the sunshine, to open its buds. In the covert of its leaves all pure principles and high aims, should find a home. And from it invisible voices should rise, forth from the nests of those pure principles, to delight, to warn, and to instruct the world. Its shade should be free for all, — it should reacli forth its branches to shield the innocent from the pelting storm ;~and, conscious of its fearless might, men should come to it for protection, and find refreshment in it s shade. It should be nurtured by no unhealthy influences ; it should be propped by no interested motives, its growth should be free and ...

Our City. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 1 April 1850

Our City. The clear weather for the past few days has produced quite a change in the appearance of our growing city. A bright sky and balmy air encourage us to harbor a sure pres cience of settled weather. We are struck with the contrast which a few weeks have produced. The din, the bustle, the confusion of business is witnessed in every quarter. — Ships and steamers, filled with passengers, are daily reaching our port, crowds of new comers throng the streets, and the entire city is a scene of life and activity. Meantime, in every direction, substantial buildings are springing up with wonderful rapidity, — tents are being removed, and we observe fine brick buildings erected and in progress of erection. A commodious theatre, too, has lately thrown open its doors, and another will soon follow its example. Public edifices are being completed, and up and down the river, and broadcast far back upon the plains, the young city j of Sacramento is spreading with a rapidity i unexampled and u...

From San Francisco. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 1 April 1850

From San Francisco. We tender to Ed. Scott, Esq;, our sincere thanks for his politeness ia laying upon our table the last two numbers of the Pacific News, and enabling us to present to our readers a few items of news from San Francisco. The principal excitement of the day in our sister city is in relation to the election. There is sad discord, not only in the Democratic, but in the Whig ranks. Col. Jack Hays received the plurality of votes, and was therefore declared the nominee of the party. Having stated, however, that he remained still an independent candidate, the Whig General Coir, mittec announced John E. Townes, Esq., as the nominee, he having received the nest highest number of votes. At a mass meeting which was called at Crockford's, to ratify the whig nominations, the friends of Jack Hays mustered in their strength, and refused to ratify the nomination of Townes. The meeting adjourned after no very satisfactory conclusions had been arrived at. However, we find published in...

Teliama Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 1 April 1850

Teliama Theatre. The opening of this Theatre on Monday evening was followed by a crowded house — both pit and boxes were uncomfortably full. The evening's entertainment consisted of the instructive and elegantly written play (by Bulwer, the novelist) of the Lady of Lyons, in which Mrs. Kirby sustained the part of Pauline,and Mr. Atwater that of Claude Melnotie. The piece was followed by the farce of the Dumb Belle — or the "Way to Win a Husband." All the parts were well "sustained, and for ourselves we could not but share in the delight experienced by the entire audience. Between the pieces a song by Mr. Fairchild,entitled "Coming Round the Horn," threw the house into ecstacies. It was truly a laughter moving yarn, and must have called up reminiscences in the minds of many who made the passage through the Antarctic region. Several ladies of high respectability witnessed the performance, occupying the private boxes, and presenting quite an array of beauty and fashion. We[do not hesit...

From the Pacific News. Poetry. We are o r ten in the habit of receiving poetical contributions, and as a general thing, decline giving thf^m publication ; more, however, on account nf t'leir general want of merit than the fact that we would not spare a third of a column now and then for a few verses. But we cannot refrain from publishing the following vigorous stanzas, trusting that they will impart aR much pleasure in the perusal to our readers as they have to our- j selves. We should be happy to give the au- j thor's name, as we deem them to possess no ; ordinary merit. | A Rallying Song for the Gold Diggers. To the Mines! to the Mines! away to the Mines: ' Where the virgin gold in the crevice shine*! Where the shale, and the slate, and the quartz j enfold ' In their. stony arms, the glittering gold.
