PLUMAS CITY, The Paradise of California, and will be the Emporium of trade on Feather River, is beautifully situated on the east bank of the river, about 10 miles above Nicolaus, and 5 below ElizuviUe, on high land, and can be approached by vessels drawing from 8 to 10 feet of water, as proved by the schooners Eclipse and Alfred within a few days, and will be accessible by steamers, the season through. Its locality to the mines insures a vast amount ol trade, being nearer to the Bear River, Rough and Ready, Deer Creek and Dry Creek mines, than any other township, and will command a portion of the North Fork and Yuba mines trade th* year through, and in summer, probably a large share. The city is laid out jointly by John A. Suttet, Esq. and G. H. Beach, in shares of $1000 each, payable halt down, the balance iv 90 days— about 36 to 38 lots to the share.

The* Slave Case* [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 27 May 1850

The Slave Case. The proceedings of our Courts, the past week, have afforded unusual interest. Charles, a colored man, claimed as the slave of Lindal Hayes, was brought, before Judge Thomas, on a writ of habeas corpus, and discharged, the Judge maintaining that under the constitution of the State, and under the Mexican laws previously existing, he had no right to detain him. We shall give the opinion of the Court at length, and a history of this highly important trial on another occasion. The man Charles was again brought up on Friday for breach of the peace, in having made an assault upon said Hayes, and for unlawful resistance to the Sheriff and officers arresting him. Mr. Hayes deposed that the prisoner drew a knife upon him, against which he defended himself; that the knife was accidentally dropped, when the prisoner took to flight, Hayes in pursuit ; a third party, a gentleman, then came up, struck, the fugitive with a stick, and addled him . Sheriff McKinney appeared at this ti...

It vviii hnrdly to be expected that we would be favored so early in the dramatic career of our city with performances of the peculiar merit that attaches to those now nightly presented on these boards. From their variety and appropriateness one might easily imagine, that the veteran caterer for popular entertainment^ the. veritable Niblo, had transported his far-famed garden, to our midst. The theatre indeed far surpasses that which was wont to resound to the app'aosei' of the wonder- j fill Ravel 4 , the fascinating Madame Javclli, and the exquisite Mangy.

Fire ! . At half past 11 o'clock last evening the office of the Placer Times was discovered to boon fire. In a few moment* the flumes spread to every part of. the room in which they originated, and broke out upon the roof at its junction with tho front and cornice of the building. Immediately the alarm sped through the City, and hundreds were on the spot to check tho devouring element. In this they happily succeeded. In less than a quarter of an hour every spark had been extinguished, and wo were receiving the hearty congratulations of our (Han 's for an almost miraculous escape from destruction which seemed from the first, inevitable. We can but faintly expro I our gratitude for the united and wel! directed exertions to which this result is due. Aid from every quarter poured in faster than we cfan describe it.
