For the Californian [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 24 May 1848

For the Californian. Mr. Editor,— The gold mines up the Sacramento appear to be exciting considerable attention, and are the principal topic of conversation in our now almost deserted town. The few who remain are mostly those whose circumstances place them above the need of gold digging and some few who are not easily gulled, or such as cannot raise five dollars to pay their passage. This state of things sir, is to any reflecting man most deplorable. What evil effects may not result from this mania, this desire to become suddenly rich and the consequent abandonment of all useful pursuits in a wild goose chase after gold? I doubt sir, if ever the sun shone upon such a farce as is now enacting in California though I fear it may prove a tragedy before the curtain drops. I consider it your duty Mr. Editor, as a conservator of the public morals and welfare, to raise your voice against this thing. It is to be hoped that Gov. Mason will despatch the volunteers to the scene of action and se...

Kitton has been married to Miss Eliza Juno Kittou, whereupon tho Times says -- ' scat!* The following toast was recently given at the 32d anniversary celebration of the Columbia Typographical Society, at Washington: Bjr James English.

This is the age of iron -- iron steamboats, iron coffins, iron tombstones; and now they are actually making iron cradles at Pittsburgh ! The boys rocked in them will doubtless be men of 'iron nerves.' A man who had lived much in society, said that his acquaintances would fill a cathedral, but that the pulpit would hold his friends. Mr. Hayman having exhibited a miscreble picture of Peter denying Christ, a wag observed that any one would have denied such a Christ.

GOLD! GOLD!! GOLD!!! Messrs. Dickson & Hay are purchasers of Sacramento Gold A liberal price given. BEE HIVE. 2-tf To Our Readers: With this slip ceases for the present the publication of the Californian — "Othello's occupation's gone!" The reasons which have led to this step are many and cogent. We shall however, only state a few of them, merely to satisfy those whose curiosity, may be aroused sufficiently to gain for us a perusal, and to show the expediency of the measure. The majority our subscribers and many of our advertising patrons have closed their doors and places of business and left town, and we have received one order after another conveying the pleasant request that "the printer will please stop my paper," or "my advertisment, as I am about leaving for the Sacramento." We have also received information that very many of our subscribers in various parts of the country have left their usual places of abode, and gone to the gold region, showing that this fever ...

FOREIGN [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 15 July 1848

FOREIGN N E W S. HIGHLY IMPORTANT. THE WHOLE WORLD AT WAR. By the arrival of the schooner Honolulu, Capt. F. A. Newell, 23 days from Honolu, we have been favored with the Polynesian of June 10th, which contains the followiqg interesting, exciting and warlike news from the tottering monarchies of Europe. It was received at the Sandwich Islands by the arrival of H. B. M's ship Constance, Capt. Courtnay, 29 days from Callao. The news from Great Britain is highly important and of great moment. We regret that our columns will not admit of more extended extracts. The news of murders in China had reached London, and the general feeling is, that no consideration, either of economy or policy, can prevent another heavy visitation of Canton with the power of that country. Everything was quiet in England on the 17th of March, and order had been restored in Paris. Amicable relations existed between the two countries. The intelligence from France is of an astounding nature. Revolution is proceedi...
