WEDNESDAY MORNING, DEC. 19, 1849 The H^rrtit Miirdfr. Wo cannot refrain from saying a few words with regard to recent sad occurrence at tho Hello Union which resulted in the death of one of tho parties concerned, and the utter ruin and disgrace of tho other participator of the affair. — Tho deceased hns been represented as a miid and inoffensive young man, and ccrtaihly 1 if we are to place any credence upon the testimony, could not bo considered in the light of the aggressor. The ether participant, Wither*, appears to have acted from tho first moment of the affair which terminated in «• melancholy a manner with tho most perfect recklessness, for which wo can account in no other way than by tho presumption thiit ho waa rendered an irrational being from tho demon rum.

Tin Hral of &amp;lt;;&amp;lt;&amp;gt;vrriiiu«H«. The Pueblo do Sun Jose, just now presents an unusual and stirring aspect. Crowded with strangers, the State Legislature about organizing, and candidates for tin- several offices feeling the pulao of either house an exciting and interesting state of affairs may bp inferred. Our intelligence received yesterday from that city, adds a very disagreeable finish to the picture, nevertheless. It appears that for about nut' sixth of the number assembled there, the meanest accommodations can only bo procured, and as fho population is rapidly augmenting, tli prospects are that very soon there will not lie an empty Bugar hogshead in the place. This is certainly an admirable arrangement for the seat of government, and the consequences of this failure on the part of the people of San Joao to accommodate the Legislature, and provide for the comfort of the members during its first session should be an immediate removal of that body to thi...

r*»» cr«&amp;gt;- T§. PlMjrlMg Cart*. "One reason why men in business happen to fail is- because they dont succeed," and we suppose the same thing may be said of those whose business is "aobody's business," in other word*, who live or die by the cast of the dice. We cordially approve of relief meetings for the poor, but no specious argument can induce us to place money in the hands of those who know nothing of its value, and of this class poverty boasts an extended and widening circle in San Francisco. "Remember the Four,"— we have no disposition to fin-get them, and if generous deeds bespeak the better heart, our charity shall not exist with us in words alone. But are we fulfilling the duty imposed upon us by the laws of (Jod and man when we exercise charity towards our fellow creatures in destitute circuuwtancag, with a knowledge that gaming has reduced them, and by an assistance of money we but feed the passion for cards ' It does not appear reasonable. The city is overrun wi...

The I ...I. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 19 December 1849

The Turf We find the following roport of a race between Mac, Lady Suffolk and Grey Eagle in one of our exchanges in which the time was certainly very " spicy." "We announced a few days ago that Mac, Lady Suffolk and Grey Eagle were to" try it on again" on the 14th instant, at Cambridge, under the saddle, at mile heats best, 3 in 5. The race came off accordingly and resulted in favor of Mac. There were four heats— Mac taking the first, third and fourth. Lady Suffolk took the second heat. Grey Eagle was withdrawn after the first heat, in which he was third. Of all the v quick time' ever made in this or any other country, by trotting horses, that mada on this occasion eclipses everything on or off record. We should say that 2:31 — 2:26 — 2:27 — 2:29 is mighty hard to beat! Yet this is the official time recorded in the Boston papers. The race called out a large attendance, and produced the utmost excitement. People were present from Albany, Troy, and Maine, and all the neighboring towns...
