Sewartl, in tho Senate of the United States, on the admission of California : Mr Skwuu) ,(»se and said: Mr. President — Four years ago. California, scarcely inhabited and quite unexplored, wuunknown even to our usually immoderate desires, except by a harbor, capacious and tranquil, which, only statesmen then foresaw would be useful [q the Oriental eon* m ree of a far distant, if not merely chimerical future. A year ago, California was a mere military dependency of our own, and we wcro celebrating, with enthusiasm and unanimity, its acquisition, with its newly discovered, but yet untold and untouched mineral wealth, as the most" auspicious of many and unparalleled achievements. To-day, California is a State, more populous than the least, and richer than several of the greatest of our thirty States. This same California, thus rich and populous, is here asking admission into the Union ...

[For the PltvcerTimes] i!Vcw River in Hu l»«s« r(. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 31 May 1850

[For the Pltvcer Times] i!Vcw River in Hu l»«s« r (. Mr. Editor— l observe in a late San Francisco paper an editorial article about New River, in the Sandy Desert northwest of the Rio Colorado. The writer gives credit to Mr Emory, of the Topographical Engineers, for his important information in reference to the breaking out of said riv er. I have seen this river, having travelled from the mouth of the Gila to Vallasita, this side of the desert ; and I must humbly beg to differ diametrically from Major E. and the editor. Now, according to my own observations, as well as others who have been there, it seems that New River has its source north of the sand bank which lies on this side of the Colorado, and runs nearly due north, mingling with waters that run into the Pacific, not far from San Diego, or losing themselves in sandy plains. It is suggested by the learned editor, or his informant, that the Colorado, being confined to a narrow channel, and forcing its way through an elevated c...

Duiigcroivi <« round. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 3 June 1850

Duiigcroivi &amp;lt;« round. This character his been attributed to the discussion of a matter now of infinite concern to a very great proportion of our community. We totally differ from any one who does not consider it the absolute duty of the organs of public opinion, which the press pretend to be, to furnish a clear, correct, and conscientious statement of all questions involving the rights and interests of the people and the stability of our social institutions. That such has not been the course pursued hitherto on a subject to which our allusions are understood, may be perhaps justified by a consideration of the first appearance of squatterism in this City. Early last winter, numerous meetings were held in its name, and the rights and wrongs of the ''settlers." which is their preferred designation, freely agitated and urlged. It is a well known fact that these meetings were attended by citizens generally without regard to their sympathies in the cause which originated them. ...

White and famiy arrived among the earliest of the overland emigration. Although comparatively fortunate, they did not escape a large share of the vexations and anxieties necessary to po prolonged a journey. Like those of the old Knickerbockers of New York, their names and that of other families who constitute our still limited, but refined and delightful social circle, will be known and honored in future geneiations as the first scttleisof the inetropoUl of the I'acific, and the worthy progenitors of the new branch of our race, now born to its glorious destiny of rcpublicanising the whole world.

[COMMUNICATED] Mr. Editor : - Less than two months since, a deep interest was evinced by the peopta of this city, on the subject of a Levee. This feeling was responded to by the Common Council, in the constitutional mode, by submitting to the peopie a propopilion emho.hin* an appropriation deemed sufficient to effect the object. And what was the response ? A vote nearly unanimous in favor of it, and which a conviction as universal as the belief of it? necessity, only prevented from being in number nearly equal to the population qttalii vote on it. Snee the return of the vote to the Council, the subject has been allowed to go quietly to sleep, and morths are rapidly passing away id which labor can he procured at a reasonable price, and the ground is in a state favorable to the most profitable disposition of the labor.

Things i- Moving. — The times are looking up in the mines. : All the rivers arc going down,; and so are the miners, except those that arc frozen up in the Sarah Navadocs.
