The United States. --- ltems. PRESENT STATE OF THE QUESTION. — The Senate, on the 28th ult., by a vote of 33 to 22, passed a bill for the establishment of Territorial governments in Oregon, California, and New Mexico, It excluded slavery from Oregon, but in regard to the other two, merely prohibited the territorial governments from legislating on the subject, — at the same time referring all questions which might grow out of it, to the Supreme Courts of said Territories, with liberty of appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States. On the following day this bill was rejected in the House, by a vote of 112 to 97. The same body, on Thursday last, 3d inst, by a vote of 114 to 88, passed a bill for the organization of a Territorial government in Oregon, with a clause providing for the exclusion ol slavery. So far as Oregon is concerned, it accords substantially with the Senate bill; but differs in this, that it makes no provision for Territorial governments in California and New Mex...

UKOSS OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 February 1849

GROSS OUTRAGE. ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO.THURSDAY, FEB. 15. 1849 Hitherto we have chronicled the outrages and violence of individuals in different portions of the country, who were acting in opposition to all law and right. It now becomes our duty to notice an attack upon the liberty of a citizen of this town under what is called the sanction of law! Our readers will recollect that in our last number we published the proceedings of the second town council, and that, among other matters mentioned, the condition of the calaboose was spoken of in very severe terms. This language did not accord with the Alcalde's views on the subject, and he accordingly issued the following warrant for the arrest of the two gentlemen of the committee who had the temerity to give publicity to their sentiments: "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Territory of California, } San Francisco District, } To J. C. Pulis, Sheriff of the said District, greeting: — You are hereby commanded to take the bodies of L. ...

THE MEKTINU. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 February 1849

THE MEETING. In pursuance of a call signed by many citizens, a meeting of the inhabitants of this District was held in Portsmouth square on Monday afternoon last. The proceeding and result of that meeting will be found in another column. We cannot allow this occasion to pass without saying to our readers that we heartily concur in the proceedings of that meeting, and that we hail the event as one fraught with great benefits to the people of the district. We look upon it as a triumph achieved by the people over the clique of designing, factious, selfish and ignorant men who have so long ruled the towm, to the destruction of its important public interests and the advancement of their private ends. We think we discover the commencement of a new era in the prosperity and character of the town of San Francisco, and we confidently hope that the cause so well begun will not be allowed to flag or waver, and that the iniquity which the records of the government of this town exhibits will be ...

A TERRITORIAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 February 1849

A TERRITORIAL GOVERNMENT. Our readers will be assured, on perusing on our first page, the article from the New York Journal of Commerce headed "Present state of the Question,'" that it is to the institution of slavery we owe the non-estab-lishment of a Territorial Government in this country. And they will have reason to fear, as we do, that another session of Congress may transpire without giving us the government we so much need, in consequence of the divisions and jealousies likely to grow out of that same subject. We indulged, a few weeks since, in the hope that such would not be the fact, but more accurate information, and the result of the Presidential election, have convinced us that nothing short of a miracle will bring about the reault which this territory so earnestly and anxiously desires. In this view of the subject, it therefore becomes an important duty, which every good citizen is bound to discharge, to prevent the cause of Provisional Government from flagging. The nor...

I —— Farther Front The nine*. THREE MEN HANGED AT TUE DttY DIG, GINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 February 1849

Further From The Mines. THREE MEN HANGED AT THE DRY DIGGINGS. (Small Line Break) Our account of last week in relation to the trial and punishment of the four men at the Dry Digging was substantially correct. After our informant left the Diggings, it now appears on good authority, the men were again captured, and three of them, Pepi, Antoine and Tehal were hung by the citizens. This occurred somewhere between the 21st and 25th of January. Our readers will remark on referring to another column, a call for a meeting at the Schoolhouse on Saturday evening next, to take into consideration the question of Negro slavery in California. It is presumed that the citizens generally will attend, and we trust that all will express their opinions either for or against the institution. The call contemplates a full and fair expression of public sentiment, and the discussion will probably be an interesting and entertaining one. On Thursday last we experienced a very severe norther. The shipping in po...

From (he Naiid hWTi la land*. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 February 1849

From the Sandwich lslands. By the Sloop of War Dale, Commander Rudd, which arrived on Thursday morning last, as our paper was going to press, we have late intelligence from Honolulu. Through the courtesy of Purser Buchanan, we have been furnished with copies of the Polynesian of January 6th and 13th and a copy of the News of Jauuary 11. There is no news of importance. The trial of Dr. Judd is continued, and fears are entertained that through all this delay he may be enabled to escape the punishment which most men believe him to deserve. Owing to the difficulties subsisting between the U. S. Commissioner and the Hawaiian Government, the Dale did not salute the Hawaiian flag, on her arrival. The Dale sailed unexpectedly from Honolulu, in company with the Bark Mary. Consequently the Dale brings no mail, but the Mary, which is now due and may be expected to arrive at any moment, will probably bring a very large one. The differences between, the foreign representatives and the Hawaiian G...

FROM THE SOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 February 1849

FROM THE SOUTH. The Bark Olga, J. C. Bull, master, seven days from San Pedro, arrived at this Port on Monday afternoon last. By this arrival we learn that the excitement in relation to the gold mines is still great. Large parties of Mexicans had already arrived at Los Angeles from Sonora, and it was said that there would probably be an emigration of three thousand persons from that department the ensuing summer. The winter has been remarkably severe, much more rain and snow than usual have fallen. The memory of the "oldest inhabitant" is again at fault. We regret to learn that the venerable and beloved Judge Fitch of San Diego, is dead. He expired on the 13th of January after an illness of fifteen days. His disease was Typhoid Pneumonia. It appears by recent intelligence from Sonoma, that the people of that district have taken the initiative in the formation of a District Legislature. We append a list of members elected to the House of Delegates, which was organised by the appointme...

Public Sleeting. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 February 1849

Public Meeting. A Public meeting of the citizens of the Town and District of San Francisco, was held in the Public Square on Monday afternoon, the 12th inst., in accordance with previous notice. The meeting was organized by calling M. Norton to preside, and T. W. Perkins to act as Sec'y. The Chairman, after reading the call of the meeting, opened it more fully by lucidly, but succinctly stating its objects; when Mr. Hyde, on being invited, after some preliminary remarks, submitted the following plan of organization of government, for the District of San Francisco: Whereas, we, the people of the district of San Francisco, perceiving the necessity of having some better defined, and more permanent civil regulations, for our general security than the vague, unlimited, and irresponsible authority that now exists, do, in general convention assembled, hereby, establish and ordain: ARTICLE I.
