THIS long established and commodious Hotel has been thoroughly repair ed and refitted this season, and will now fur nish accommodations of the first order.

River Navigation. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 25 July 1850

River Navigation. A few days will decide how far up the rivers steamboats can ascend in the summer season. The water in the rivers is now lowering fast, but it goes down in such a manner as to injure navigation more than it benefits the miner. The snow is still melting on the mountains in sufficient quantities to keep the streams too high for successful mining, but there is not enough water to sustain the rivers lower down, where the channels are wide and irregular. We learn from Captain Hall, of the Linda, that there was three and a half feet of water on the bar below Plumas, and the same depth on the bar at Fremont and Vernon, yesterday. He thinks that steamboats can run up as high as Marysville as long as they can enter Feather river, as the navigation is quite as easy on the upper as the lower end. Feather river is now falling near the mouth about six inches per day. The boats now running, with one or two exceptions, require at least twenty-eight inches of water, so it will be s...

Chapters on Gold Digging. No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 25 July 1850

Chapters on Gold Digging. No. 2. BY A DIGGER. The Selection of Localities. Gold digging may properly be divided into five branches, although they are usually kuown as simply dry and wet diggings. There is — Ist : the diggings on the river ; 2nd, crevicing on the banks; 3rd, dry diggings in the ravines ; 4th, dry diggings on flats ; sth, canon diggings in the deep cragged canons. The latter is extremely difficult and laborious work ; heavy rocks have to be overturned, and at no season of the year are the holes free from water by reason of the existence of numerous springs which line the banks. These canon diggings are usually worked by digging a race to turn the channel of the stream, so that the bed can be reached. The richest diggings are near the banks ; the gigantic rocks are turned over by lever power, and the various strata of earth thrown off and washed down to the solid bottom rock. The machines used at present are mostly the Long Tom ; in camion diggings they can be worked t...

Relief to Emigrants. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 25 July 1850

Relief to Emigrants. Mr. Editor : Sir — I learn with pleasure and satisfaction Jhat an effort is in progress on the part of our community to extend the charitable arm of relief towards the suffering adventurers in pursuit of the Pacific shore. I conceive it indeed to be a most laudable enterprise, aud well worthy of invoking the liberality and philanthropy of ;he people of Sacramento. All who have endured the perils of an overland march, require no assurance of the extreme dangers to which are necessarily exposed the way-worn pilgrims to this land of promise. Their own sufferings, privations and perils will appeal to them more forcibly than language can, in behalf of those of their fellow-beings who are now pursuing their weary travel over the same cheerless route, surrounded by all the discouraging circumstances of so hazardous an adventure. In this reminiscene of their own experience, it would be a fruitless and vain endeavor to shut their eyes to the necessities of their countrym...

For the Transcript. The Placer Times—Alderman Spalding— Jefferson. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 25 July 1850

For the Transcript. The Placer Times — Alderman Spalding — Jefferson. As a looker on to the amusing quandary in which the officials of our city are reduced by the pungent criticism of "Jefferson," I could not but be amused by the article in the "Times," of the 24th inst., headed " Legislation of the City Council." The coincidence or rather foresight of " Jefferson" is remarkable, iv showing so clearly the appliances used by office-holders, to mould opinions whereby their misdeeds are kept under cover, with the appearance of the " Tunes' " defence of the Council. I have been satisfied that some effort at defence by that paper would be made ; and were it not for the extreme youth and inexperience of its editor, would be much inclined to place him on the same category of its editors so well pointed out by " Jefferson ;" but it will not do to forget that Mr. Lawrence is a very clever young man, and the indiscretion of his position, instead of arousing angry feelings, excites pity and co...

If the issue was successful, they (the settlers) were expected to' do what they could afford to beside th...

Meeting for the Relief of Emigrants. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 25 July 1850

Meeting for the Relief of Emigrants. At an adjourned meeting for the relief of the Overland Emigrants, held on Tuesday evening, July 24th, pursuant to public notice, the same was called to order by the Chairman, Col. Bigler. The meeting was then eloquently addressed by Messrs Kewen, Latham, Russell and Stevens ; also, by two gontlemen, names unknown, who arrived in the city on to-day from the Plains, who, in a feeling manner, recounted the suffering they had already witnessed. Col. Russell offered the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted. Whereas, This meeting having been called by a well settled conviction that a large portion of the backward or hindmost trains of the overland emigrants to California will be greatly subjected to suffering and want on account of the scarcity of food and the necessary animals for transportation, unless speedy and well organized measures are taken or adopted for their relief by the early and more fortunate sectlers on this side of the...
