Communicated. State issayer's Office. The great importance of this establish- ment to the mining, mercantile and other interests of the Sacramento District, is too apparent to require argument to demonstrate it. The average intrinsic value of gold dust is over $18 per ounce, and certainly no good reason can be assigned why 'full value should not be received for it by the miner. At present the market value cf the dust ranges from $14 to $16 per ounce, averaging about $2 40 per ounce less than its real value. Why is it so ? Is it because fears are entertained that, like bank paper, it may depreciate in value ? Not so. There is no danger of the ingot depreciating. It is not dependant for an intrinsic value upon- the credit which may be given to it by the community. It has in itself an intrinsic worth, and like the coin of the United States, cannot, and will not, depreciate. This being the case, certainly no good reason can be assigned for refusing to receive it at its stamped value, wh...
Report on Land Titles in California, [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 11 July 1850
Report on Land Titles in California, BY WM. CAREY JONES. 1. "To the mode of creating titles to land, from the first inception to the perfect title, as practised by Mexico, within the province of California." All the grants of land made in California (except pueblo or village lots, and except, perhaps, some grants north of the bay of San Francisco, as will be hereafter noticed) subsequent to the independence of Mexico, and after the establishment of that government in California, were made by the different political governors. The great majority of them were made subsequent to January, 1832, and consequently under the Mexican Colonization Law of 18th August, 1824, and the government regulations, adopted in pursuance of the law, dated 21st November, 1828. In January, 1832, General Jose Figueora became Governor of the then territory of California, under a commission from the Government at Mexico, replacing Victoria, who, after having the year before, displaced Echandrea, was himself dr...

RESOLUTIONS COMPLIMENTARY TO MAYOR BIGELOW. " Whereas, Nothing can be more obviously apparent to the people of Sacramento than the effective and extraordinary efforts which were made by our worthy Mayor in the month of March last, and which resulted in the rescue of our city from a second deluge, it being well known that for many nights he was vigorously engaged in traversing the entire line of embankment which he had caused to be thrown up with wonderful promptitude, watching with sleepless care the aggressive clement, and immediately cheeking its inundating currents whenever they had overcome his barriers; it beiirg also well known that the severe hardships and almost unbroken exertions which he entailed upon himself during this critical period of our city's existence did seriously impair his hcallh and devolve upon aim many pecuniary inconveniences in order that the means necessary to meet this great emergency should be at once obtained ; and Whereas, When we reflect upon the imm...
