Who shall be I'untrat-tors.' [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 August 1850

Who shall be I'unt rat-tors .' In consequence of the illness of our reporter, we were unable to give a full account of the proceedings of the Common Council on Friday evening last. We arc told that the President made a long speech, to prove that members of the Council were entitled to the privilege of taking contracts for building the Levee around the city. As there was no motion before the house to call for such sentiments, it seems as though the President's remark were intended as a feeler, to see how the people will relish the i ea of members of the Council playing into each other's hands, and monopolising the public works. There have been so many instances in California where office-holders have used their official stations for undue personal aggrandisement, that our officials who regard their political reputation, will be extremely careful how they obtain posts of profit. Nothing would tend more to destroy all the confidence the public have in our municipal government, than for...

San Fruucisco Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 August 1850

San Fruucisco Correspondence. San Francisco, Friday afternoon, Aug. 2, 1850. Sailing of the Panama. —At about six o'clock yesterday evening, this noble steamship weighed anchor, and ere Phoebus had reached his western goal, she passed through our golden gate, and was ploughing the billows of the " wide deep sea." she bears 300 of our countrymen "home," and some 50 to other points, with untold treasure, not only of gold, but of " glad hearts that dance with joy." Threatened Duel among Editors. — The editors of the Alta California, it is sa hay« taken a dislike to the Courier from Its very conception. The former paper's editorials, before the latter "saw the light," induced the inference, that it would make " war upon the Courier to the knife." Some believe that these expectations have been fully realised. The Courier for a long time only replied by sarcasm and ridicule. It seems, however, that it considered the public so outrageously imp ised upon by a statement which the Alta made c...

Correspondence of the Transcript [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 August 1850

Correspondence of the Transcript We have received the following letter from a coirespondent in Nicolaus, containing interesting news from the up river 'placeres,' and trust to hear from the same source frequently : Nicolaus, Aug. 2, 1850. Mr. Editor: The incredibly short space of time in which the banks of Feather and Yuba river and their brauches have been lined with cities, villages aud farms, will always remain a miracle, not only in the history of California, but of the whole world. Six months ago the cities of Nicolaus, El Dorado, Plumas, Eliza, Hamilton, Yuba, Yatestown, Troy, St. Louis, Veazie, Fredonia, Vernon. were not in existence ; some of them now contain a population of over 600, aud numbers of the finest frame houses are erected in them everyday. The navigation on both rivers, upon which the success of most all these places depends, is at this low water stage, very much impeded by large sandbars and snags, which by th°ir size and frequency, remind one strongly of the M...

From San Francisco. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 August 1850

From San Francisco. San Francisco Currency. — While our own State currency goes begging, a speculation has been carried on by the circulation of English shillings and French franc pieces, which have hitherto been taken for twenty-five cents. Recently it has been discovered that certain parties were flooding the market with these coins, and realizing in this way a handsome profit of thirty per cent.; but the thing has been overdone, and business men now refuse to take these foreign coins at more than their real value. We trust they will go one step farther, and pronounce in favor of supporting the currency of the State. Mr. Kohler's ingots are at least genuine and reliable; and however awkward for the pocket, one knows at least that he has in them them the full value stamped on their face. — [Herald. The following are the shipments of Gold yesterday from this point : By steamer Pan:imu, for Panama. s2,loo,ooo By U. S. sloop-of-war Preble, for Valpaiaiso 115,767 By bark Sea Breeze, fo...

TihcellaiTOuS. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 August 1850

TihcellaiTOuS. Affairs in Chili. — Valparaiso papers of the 1 6th April state that the new ministry which was forming would consist of Perez, Minister of the Interior ; Urmeneta, of Finance , Lfizcano, of Justice, and Vidal, of War ; most of them said to be young and inexperienced ; consequently, it was thought that the cabinet would not last long. An increase of commerce at Valparaiso had occasioned great complaints against the tedious management of the custom house, and a change was contemplated. In regard to the app oaching election, the conservative patty was pretty much disorganized, anil the chances of success were therefore with the opposition. When the Princess Helena was born, it was told the Princess Royal that she had a young sister. '.' O.that is delightful," cried little innocent royalty, " do let me go and tell mamma." The following is considered an excellent receipt for French love : Take a bit of ice, a bit cf heart, a bit of wit, a bit of paper, a little time, a lit...

SOUTHERN MIXES—RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 6 August 1850

SOUTHERN MIXES— RACES. The conquest of this continent by the American people has been frequently compared with the conquest of the Roman empire, by the tribes of northern and central Europe. But there is this difference between the two events. In the great upheaving of the European world, which occurred during the fourth and filth centuries of our era, the conquering and the conquered people, though belonging to the same Caucasian family, never coalesced, but remained for { centuries distinct, constituting the i lasses of the aristocracy and the commons. In the settlement, however, of the United States lands during this century, there has been a mixture and amalgamation of all the European races ; and the inhabitants of northern and southern Europe, the German and the Dane, as well as the Italian and Spaniard, have united and become integral portions of the same great State. But never have we, ! in the United States, mixed to any extent with other than the pure Caucasian races ; fin...
