Provisional Government. "'orrevpondeiice of tlie Alta fuliforni MEETING AT MONTEREY. Monterey, 31st Jan., 1849 Ed's Alta California. — After considerable persuasion on the part of one or two persons of influence, we have had a meeting and an election for five delegates to represent this district in the proposed Convention, to be held on the 5th March next, in the Pueblo de San Jose. Enclosed I hand you the proceedings of our meeting, which you will please publish. Sufficient time was allowed for the election to come off, and notices in Spanish were distributed, soliciting the Californians to join us in this matter, but not one appeared at the meeting or at the polls. In compassion for this portion of our fellow citizens, we nominated and elected Gen. Jose Castro and Don Francisco Palacio de Miranda to represent them. Yours, &c., in haste, C. B. S.

THE PROPOSED GOVERNMENT. ALTA CALIFORNIA. San Francisco, Thursday, Feb. 22, 1849 In a number of the Weekly New York Herald of July 22, 1848, which has just come to hand, we find the "Report of the select Territorial Committee to the Senate of the United States, July 18, 1848." The report was made by Mr. Clayton, as chairman of the select committee to whom was referred the subject of territorial governments in Oregon, Califorma and New Mexico. That portion of the bill introduced by the committee, providing for the establishment of a Territorial government in Oregon was finally passed, with several modifications; but the portions referring to California and New Mexico did not receive final action. We have not room this week for the entire bill, and therefore give the following synopsis. The first twenty sections provide for the government of Oregon, and that portion relative to California commences with section twenty-one, viz: Sec. 21. Provides that all that territory acquired by the...

im r.vr arrivals—tiii: news. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 22 February 1849

Recent Arrivals — The News. By referring to our shipping list, our readers will perceive that a fleet of vessels have arrived from various parts since our last publication. Of course, you will all expect some important news. We are sorry to say we have heard nothing, (and we have taken some pains to inquire) that comes fairly under that head. — Such as we have, we give below. The Ocean steamer California, the pioneer of the line intended to ply between Oregon and Panama, left New York on the 6th of October last. She arrived at Valparaiso on the 20th December, and sailed from that port for Panama, on the 22d of the same month. She refused to take passengers at Valparaiso, because she expected to find at Panama more than she could carry. Should she meet with no extraordinary delay we may expect her arrival at any moment. We are informed, however, that want of coal, will probably detain her at Panama or Mazatlan. We have been kindly furnished with the following account of mail arrangem...

PUBLIC MEETING, Pursuant to previous notice a Public Meeting was held in the School House on Saturday evening, Feb'y 17th, "to take into consideration the propriety of instructing our representatives to the Provisional Government Convention, to oppose any incipient act that tends to promote the introduction of Negro Slavery into the Territory of California."
