Another New town Discovered -- Exceedingly interesting to the Proprietors. Marysville, May 17. Important from Trinity Diggings. I have just seen three gentlemen who came in this morning from the above region. They inform me that all those at work are doing well, but that many are wasting their time prospecting, for veins on the hills. One of them got out with his own hands, six hundred and thirty-two dollars in four days. They are now packing provisions and return again immediately. They complain much of the distance they are obliged to come for them, anid speak in high terms of the new City of Trinidad just laid out on the left bank of the Sacramento, about six miles below the Red Bluffs. The roads they say are excellent between there and Trinity river, and as soon as good stores are established, the whole supply of stores for the Trinity mines, will be derived from that place. The steamer Jack Hays was laying at the .Levee as they passed, discharging the first cargo of goods that ...

All About JTlnll Steamers and Post fleets aid Law and Justice, and . other Enigmas. The imputation of being behind the age fortunately seldom applies to anything in this fast country ; for what may now be held here in such a category, we arc not responsible, only inheriting, it as we do a legacy of ancestral sin, often visited (in scriptural promise) even upon the third und fourth generations. Not now to speak of tho gre.it cardinal wrong of denying us our due governmental rights and privileges, taxed, as we are. to the utmost, and without representation —our wise an 1 provident political parents have saddled upon us also an odious mail arrangement, which, filling to surfeit the coffers of a grasping monopoly, enriches them at the expense of the dearest ties of fellowship and affection. The repeated outrages inflicted with arrogant AMiumption, and mercenary and inhuman indifference.upon our brethren m their advent hither, and up.m the most highly-prised privileges they had trusted t...

Market II«»hm>. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 May 1850

Market II«»hm>. The subjoined communication treats of a matter of much general interest. It is undoubtedly very inconvenient for the enterprising gentlemen who have gone into the business of providing our citizens with the products of the garden and field to be compelled to hawk them around from one to another of the meat stands about town, and causes them probably to make less frequent visit* to the City than they would, were better accommodations afforded. It is now, we know, the custom to bring in their supplies only twics or three times a week ; and although vegetables bo not the lessabunbant thereby, still their quality and condition is much impaired by being kept over a day or two. We have wine very watchful and wideawake member* in the Council whoso early attention no doubt will be called to the subject of a proper establishment for all the purposes of a market. The time calls for it now. It would become a source, of considerable revenue immediately, and we hope pr...

Ctty Affairs. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 May 1850

Ctty Affairs. A Fine Present —Messrs. Morse & Dunning brought us yesterday a basket full of the most elegant vegetables and fmita our eyes have yet rested on in California. First and foremost a water melon of fair proportions, luscious and rip© withal, nicely packed away in peas— about a peck— then a pile of turnips and beets— all surmounted by the crowning glories of the lettuce, which we deem of more superb growth here than any where else in the world. They were chiefly from Houston's gardens ; and our friend McKnight happening along about the time, insisted on serving them up, which he did yesterlay afternoon in the tasteful style that distinguishes the tables of the Sutter Hotel. The City Market was the first established in Sacramento. The proprietor! have never failed to meet all demands upon them, although sometimes the most incredible difficulties were en. countered in procuring their supp ios By the flood and other causes they have lost hundreds of cattle, still ...

The Ballel [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 May 1850

The Ballel The laat two evenings at the Pacific Theatre have bean distinguished by the presence of crowded and fashionable houses on the occasion of introducing this universally popular entcrt&intnent upon the Sacramento stage. Mr. Rowe, the undaunted manager, appears at last to have struck the true vein, and is now in the way to gather a rich reward. Senora Fanny Manten made her first appearance in a Ballet called Gasperone. She is decidedly an effective artist. — Her style is of that highly popular school of which Madame Lecompte was the founder iv our memory — only a little more so. P The charms and graces of Ellsler. Augusta, Celeste and Blangy somewhat diverted the rapturous admiration which had been confined to that peculiar school, and for a season the innovation was tolerated, upon the maxim that beauty unadorned was adorned the most. The Monplaisirs and the "Molels" served, however, folly to restore it to the enjoyment of all its ancient honors, and it is eviden...
