Trades mid Mechanics. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 13 May 1851
Trades mid Mechanics. "We believe a glance at those departments of industry which are most immediately concerned in promoting the comfort and convenieuce of our people especially proper at a time when mechanics are beginning to turn their attention to the carrying on of trades, in which they are rendered compe- i tent by apprenticeship and experience. We have always regarded the mechanics as among the most useful members of society, and as a general thing, the life of an artisan is peculiarly conducive to the development of that kind of moral integrity and honesty of purpose which make the very best citizens in the world. In all communities it is essentially important for a limited extent of capital to be invested in the manufacture of those articles which are of indispensable utility. An en- ! tire dependence upon foreign articles of manufacture, we regard as one of the most ruinous policies that can be possibly pursued by any nation or people upon the ! globe. In every human enter...

Indla:i Murder lit El Dorado County ! [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 13 May 1851
Indla:i Murder lit El Dorado County ! We are sorry to be compelled to announce that the Indians in El Dorado county arc again becoming troublesome, and that they have once more commenced open hostilities by murdering several miners. We are furnished the particulars of this unfortunate affair by Mr. P. Stillwill. formerly a merchant of Burlington, lowa. It seems that on Friday night last a company of miners, on a prospecting tour, were encamped about six miles from Johnson's Ranch, above Hangtown, when they were fire 1 upon by a party of Indians. A Mr. Wade, formerly of Rochester, Wis., was shot dead. Another gentleman, whose name we have not learnt, received a very severe wound in the neck, but is likely to recover; while a third has not been found since the murder, and la supposed by his companions to have been killed at the same time. This lamentable occurrence is justly calculated to incite the miners to take summary and terrible vengeance upon their merciless foe. And who can bl...
MAYOR'S MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 13 May 1851
MAYOR'S MESSAGE. To tlie Honorable, the Common Council — • Gkntlemen: In conformity to the oath which I have taken, and in compliance^ the requisition* of the City Charter, it is incumbent upon me to submit for your calm consideration, the present financial condition of our city, and to recommend for your action, such views of general policy which in my humble judgment, will best be adapted to subserve the welfare, and tend to advance the future prosperity of the city. Our city, as you are all well aware, lias passed through many trying and eventful scenes, during the last year, and nothing but a commanding position, and the energy and indefatigability of her citizens, has brought her unscathed out of the severe ordeal to which she has been subjected. That she has accomplished wonders, I need only point you to her wall of defence, with which she is now surrounded. which bids defiance to the vising waters. While she has accomplished wonders in her infancy, she yet requires a great de...
