Sfissorings, [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 16 April 1850

Sf issorings, I WOULDN'T, WOULD YOU? [The following hit at some of the city belles, recently appeared in the Boston Post] I wouldn't give much for a girl with a bonnet That cost fifty dollars when first it was new — "Who sports a large muff with a hairy tail on it, Th?.t hange down in front of it, just as it grew : I wouldn't give much for this female — would you ? I wouldn't give much for a woman who prances, Promenading all the thoroughfares through — Giving winks to the clerks, or else amorous glances, Enough to turn her eyes all askew ; I wouldn't give much for this female— would you ? [Whereupon some spirited damsel retorts as follows :J I wouldn't g-ive much for a chap who has " gone Till he's run every cent of his legacy through— Whose simpering cnin has a huge goatee on it, That hangs down upon it just as it grew ; I wouldn't give much for this fellow — would you ? I wouldn't give much for a chap with a collar That's made to stand up almost over his ears— Who wears white kid...

Scratching on the "Forks." [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 18 April 1850

Scratching on the "Forks." [ Written for the " Sacramento Transcript." ] BY A DIGGER. Perhaps there is no spot throughout the whole northern mining region of California which presents a more sublime aspect than the junction of the North and Middle Forks of the American river. Standing upon the mountain ridge which overlooks both rivers, the North Fork is seen rushing in from the North N. E , while the angry waters of the Middle Fork come leaping over the rocks from the East N. E., the two uniting at the junction with commingled fury ; and thence boiling along in their course towards the ocean, until they are lost in the deep, tranquil flow of the noble Sacramento ! The view from above takes in a succe c sion of mountains bordering either river, which roll onward like undulating waves — while in the immediate vicinity there is not a stone or a foot of earth which does not bnnoconviction to the mind of the astonished spectator that here j"Old earth heav'd once with mighty quakings sha...

The Levee. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 18 April 1850

The Levee. In looking over our exchanges we find the following interesting remarks on the levee at New Orleans, which are taken from the " Picayune." Its suggestions are good ; and as they may be of service to us, now that we are about commencing the leveeing of our City, we make room for them below : " We have before us a • Report on the Internal Improvements of Louisiana,' by A. D. Wooldridge, Esq., State Engineer. It is a document published in pamphlet form, and' contains a report of the operations of the State Engineer during the last year, and also the views of the author on the protection from inundation of the lands within the State liable to be overflowed during the periodical risings of the Mississippi. The opinions advanced, tho' they may seem on first presentation rather startling, will, we think, on investigation, be found to be in the main correct. The conclusion at which Mr. Woqld'rklge has arrived jp that the le- vee system, as it is in operation in our State, has fai...

[Communicated.] Churches. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 18 April 1850

[Communicated.] Churches. On looking about our City, a person would be able to find but one build in «• devoted to religious purposes ; — this is the small chapel of the Methodist Society which was erected last aut urn. While we have spacious Hotels — large Stores — two Theatres -^- and other structures which adorn the City and give evidence of its rising importance, is it not a matter of reproach that we have no more chapels for the accommodation of our church -groin «• citizens ? The permanent success and prosperity of the town depend largely on the good morals and vfrtiie of its inhabitants. Whatever promotes these ought to be cherished by our men of business and property. Some families have been diverted from our city and prejudiced against it, because there are no churches here, and no very apparent zeal for erecting any. This objection to our city as a place of residence, ought speedily to be removed. Is there not to be an effort in this direction soon ? Will not our publicspi...

-Advertisements. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 18 April 1850

-Advertisements. In nothing are the peculiar characteristics of any people — in their business and social relations — more strikingly daguerreotyped, than in the various and dissimilar matters journalized in the advertising columns of a newspaper. Take, for instance,, a hebdomidal of the " olden times/ and ; almost the first glance one gives to it, rests upon its advertisements ; for in them he is sure to find pictured forth " the very age and body of the time." And this is none the less so at the present day. The columns of our public journals exhibit in the most lively manner, the various interests and business operations of the great world of which we form a part. Does any one wish to purchase or sellgoods or wares of any kind, he saves bolh time and money by announcing the fact in a newspaper, as he thus conveys his wishes simultaneously tothousands of individuals. One always looks to the advertisements to find the article he Avants, and those who keep their business and com mod...

ITEMS OP INTELLIGENCE FROM EUROPE. The steamer America arrived at New York on the 23d of February, bringing dates from Europe up to the 9th of February. The New Orleans Delta of the 28th has the following highly important political news from Europe : By the telegraph to-day, the dates from Baltimore being to the 25th, we le am tha the America brings highly impo:tant and deeply exciting intelligence. The chief event of int.rest is the occurrence of a great mob in Paris, on the attempt of Louis Napoleon, in imitation of his uncle, to cut down the liberty-poles erected by the people. The population turned out en masse, and protested against the measure. The President ordered out the whole military force at his command. One hundred thousand men were under arms. Conflicts took place between the soldiers and the people, in which many of the latter were killed and taken prisoners. At the : last accounts Paris was under military law. A serious difficulty has occurred between j the English a...

[Correspondence of the Sacramento Transcript.] The Levee. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 18 April 1850

[Correspondence of the Sacramento Transcript.] The Levee. Mkssrs. Editors: — In his objections to my plan for protecting' the city from inundation, "C." begirt with saying that such a procedure would not result in carrying off water enough :o he of any essential service ; and concludes with remarking, that it would take off so much, as seriously to inconvenience the people of Sacramento City ! He who supposes that the city needs no levee on the southern and eastern sides, cannot have sailed recently down to Z street ; nor have noticed to what an extent the city is inundated by refluent waters flowing back from several miles below. The plan suggested by me, contemplated a levee around the whole town, to be, say eight miles in length. Th's, with au average of eight yards wide and two yards high, would require to construct it, about 200,000 cubic yards of earth. At one dollar and a quarter per cubic yard, the whole expense would be $250,000. Now a canal three miles long, sixty feet wid...

GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 18 April 1850

GOLD. Gold, like all objects that exist in Nature, is liable to fluctuate in value, according to the supply and demand. Nothing has happened, however, since the relative value oi the various metals was fixed by act of the British Parliament in 1816, to cause any serious inconvenience. But it is apparent that a sudden and large increase in the quantity of gold, without a corresponding increased demand, would at once cause a reduction of value. This has happened, and like causes will produce the same results again. The extraordinary discoveries of gold in California have attracted a large degree of attention in the Atlantic cities, and already we hear men in that quarter speculating upon this subject Real estate holders expect the value of their property to be enhanced because there will be more money in the world than heretofore. Laborers anticipate better wage? for the same reason. It should be borne in mind, when considering the influence of the gold of California upon the currency...

Herz's Conceit. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 18 April 1850

Herz's Conceit. "Hie first concert of Henri Herz, came off according to announcement, night before last A brilliant array of the fashion of oor city graced the room ; but we must confess we were not at all pleased with the arrange^! ment of the seats. The audiefice were to«H far from the platform, and too much seperated from each other. We like to see an audience collected together. When this is so, that sympathetic feeling of interest and enthusiasm, which renders the evening brilliant, enhances the enjoyment of the listener, and excites the performer to his finest efforts, catches easily from one to the other, and spreads with rapidity throughout the roam. We regret to say that a large portion of the audience, particularly many of the ladies, lost one of the principal charms of the evening, from not having it in their powes to occupy seats which would enable them to witness the miraculous fingering of Mr. Herz. But we are happy to learn that this evil will be remedied this evening...
