[Communicated.] [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 10 April 1850

[Communicated.] MeEsrs. Editors, — At this time, when the waters are gradually encroaching upon us, the minds of our citizens are naturally turned to the most feasible methods of preventing an overflow in the future. Allow me to suggest a plan. Perhaps it will be worth thinking of. From the beginning of the large slough on the American River, that runs along down a little west of the Fort, let a large canal be dug, so as to convey the superfluous waters of the American off into the Tulares Swamps below. If the excavation be deep, sufficient material will be taken from the canal itself for a levee along the canal bank on the city side — and also for a levee on the bank of the American for some distance toward the city, from the head of the proposed canal. If, then, a levee should be thrown up on the banks of the American and Sacramento thiec feet in height, the city would be safe from every ordinary rise of the rivers. Of course, a sluice-gate would be needed at the mouth of the slou...

The Pacific Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 10 April 1850

The Pacific Theatre. We have just had the pleasure of a visit to! tiie new Pacific Theatre, which is now in process^ erection on M street, near the levee. We were pleased to see the liberal spirit with which Messrs. Queen &, Petit have entered upon the work. It will not only be an ornament and- an honor to ourcity, bat it will excel auy other similar building in California. Mr. Petit is an old hand at the work, having been connected for many years with theatres, and having built several of the most noted in the States. No labor or expense is to be spared to make the Pactfic correspond entirely with the tastes and wishes of our citizens. California is making rapid strides in population, in wealth, and in commercial import- 1 auee. Its cities are growing ; — t-iTvns are • springing up from th •' prairies ; — its plains are becoming cultivated ; — hotels are erecting, and new steamers daily awaken the cchus of its hills.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 10 April 1850

MISCELLANEOUS. The California Trade. — The number of ships now loading at Boston and New York, furnishes evidence that the California trade with those points has not abated. The Boston papers notice the fact that twenty four vessels are loading there for ports in California. There are at this time thirty-nine vessels loading at New York lor the same destination, among which are the well known ships Sheridan and St. Patrick, late Liverpool packets. "We may add that Baltimore comes in for her full share of the California trade, as is shown by the fact that there .are now loading at this port a larger number of vessels thar at any one time since the discovery of gold in California. The following are the vessels loading :— Ships Fanny, State of Maine, Ellerslie, and John Marshall ; barks Chenango, Ellen Morrison, and Home ; — brigs Montezuma, Nancy, and General Scott. The Jwo first named ships are of the largest class, and have just been launched. — [Bait. American. Hawaiian Theatricals...

Bail Road to California. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 12 April 1850

Rail Road to California. We give below an interesting article in relation to the great work of the present day, viz: the connecting of the Pacific with the Atlantic shores by railroad ! — that Vast enterprise, the completion of which will aid much in binding together our continent by means of the subtle influence of the trade that will inevitably set from shore to shore. The article we extract from the "Mercantile Journal :" Since the last issue, a petition has been presented to Congress, by Hon. Daniel Webster, signed by about two thousand citizens of Boston and vicinity, praying for a charter according to the plan of our fellow citizen, P. P. F. Degrand, the substance of which plan we have given in previous numbers of our paper. Included in the number of petitioners are many of our most intelligent and respectable citizens ; names well known to the country for their efforts in favor of internal improvements, and of well established reputation for sagacity, talent and enterprise.

President Taylor's Views on California. In one of our exchanges we find the following on the policy which President Taylor has assumed relative to California : "The message of the president is a full and frank exposition of the measures which he has adopted in relation to California. The recommendations which it contains are designed to allay the excitement which exists on the slavery question. He expressly concedes the right of Congress to prohibit slavery in the territories, in the following parapraph ; " ' Still, as under the constitution 'Congress has power to make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territories of the United States,' every new acquisition of territories has led to discussions on the question whether the system of involuntary servitude which prevails in many of the States, should or should not he prohibited in that Territory.' "The President advises Congress, as the only course which will allay excitement, to admit California with the constitution w...
