STEAM NAVIGATION OF THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 22 July 1850

STEAM NAVIGATION OF THE PACIFIC. —The Pacific, —at least that portion of it East cf 150° east longitude, is admirably adapted to steam navigation, and where subject to typhoons, navigation can be adapted to their times and seasons. With the single exception noticed above in regard to the bulk of the fuel now employed, voyages could be performed at about half the cost of time and expense that they now are in sailing vessels, and the inhabitants of the earth brought into much closer proximity. Great Britain has the honor of first introducing steam navigation into the Pacific upon the South American coast, and from the present aspect of things, bids fair to be the first to launch out into the great Ocean, and thus bring her colossal Australian Colonies to within half their present distance, in relation to time. The benefits of this vigorous undertaking can scarcely be over estimated, in the new impulse iha't will be given to those colonies. Emigraionwill be rapidly increased, and the e...

An Editor's Prerogative. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 22 July 1850

An Editor's Prerogative. The duties of an editor are too numerous to de- tail; but these duties are not more numerous lhan are ilie various expectations of a community in regard to him. One individual thinks his interests ought to be sustained ; one party feels aggrieved if their views are not advocated— and so of all cliques and associations, sects and denominations, or political organizations; their expectations are as different as their views. As to the liberty of the press— the right to give publi- city to honest opinion on all occasions, when tin public weal requires it, the sanction of an en lightened people and the custom of years speak* stronger than argument. Amid all the varied ex pectations existant among any community wit regard to an editor.it may with safely be asserted that all good men expect him to be honest and fearless in the following particulars: First— he must be among the foremost in all moral reformations; he must not hesitate to attack the monster vice, no m...

ASTOUNDING DEVEOPMENTE-Canibalism [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 22 July 1850

ASTOUNDING DEVEOPMENTE-Canibalism in San Francisco. — The San Francisco Courier publishes a paragraph relative to a young lad)' among the guests at the St. Francis Soiree, who expressed a desire to " eat up an editor ."' The paragraph is headed " Good Taste," as if the editor was a connoiseur in the sweets of Cannibalism. To our surprise the Pacific General takes up the subject, and discusses it very coolly ; talking about " widowed wives mourning sad losses in view of devoured husbands," etc. Verily that "Frisco" is a strange place. Our chum has been rusticating there for the past two weeks, but immediately on reading these two gourmandizing articles, we wrote him an urgent letter to return home and seek safety among the civilized tribes. We have often observed that the girls stared rather hard at us, but we thought they were innocent, harmless creatures, and paid no regard to it. Hereafter, when a "gal" looks at us very scrutiniziiigly, we shall make tracks with all possible speed...

THE STRANGE MAN WITH THE ECHINESE [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 22 July 1850

THE STRANGE MAN WITH THE ECHINESE Umbrella. — Every day of our life almost (Sundays always excepted), a singular-look-ing hombre pops into our office, holding over his head an odd-looking Chinese umbrella. After laying it on the floor by his side, he usually hands us a roll of manuscript, takes up his umbrella, and departs noiselessly as he came. Our readers doubtless will feel a strong disposition to ask who this singular hornbre is. We can only tell them that he is of all men most wonderful ; he cries incessantly, and yet we never saw him shed a tear ; he is so great a public speaker that hundreds hang upon every word he utters with the deeprst interest ; he boasts no pugilistic skill, yet no man is so constantly in the knock down business ; he is no mechanic, and yet few can outharnmer him ; always since we knew him he has made declarations about going, and yet he still sticks to thai old corner of X and Front street. Reader, the subject of our sketch is one of the stars of our c...

City Physician. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 22 July 1850

City Physician. Legislation of ihe City Council—lts Errors — The Necessity of Reform — No. 1 Continued. It is said our first article has caused some fluttering ; that an effort is being made to bluff off investigation, by bold threats and bombastic declarations of prowess. We are unmoved — no emotion is excited — we shall not be directed from the path of duty ; and it this cause is preductivc of results, it is to induce us to consider at greater length the subject matter of our commencement. The true secret of national greatness is found in the high moral power ot truth and honesty ; so it is with individuals; if they are wanting in the element of true greatness, they are in a position to tall with the first blast. The moral obliquity of many public men often leads to national disgrace ; so it may be with a petty municipality. The credit, character, and high toned public sentiment originates I with it.s public men ; if they are wanting in the moral power of truth and honesty, that c...

Report on Land Titles in California, [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 22 July 1850

Report on Land Titles in California, BY WM. CAREY JONES. (Continued.) It is a common opinion, that nearly all of what may be called the coast country — that is, the country west of the Sacramento and Joaquin valleys— which lies south of, and including, the .Sonoma district, has been ceded, and is covered with private grants. If this were the case, it would still leave the extensive valleys of those large rivers and their lateral tributaries almost intact, and a large extent of territory — from three to four degrees of latitude — at the north, attached to tin' public domain, within the State of California, beside the gold region, of unknown extent, along ihe foothills of the Sierra Nevada. But while it may be nominally the ca>e, ihat thegreater part of the coast country refe.-red to is covered with grants, my observation and information convince me, that when the country shalf b- surveyed, after leaving to every grantee aIF that his grant calls for, lhere will be extensive...
