From the Plains. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 6 August 1850

From the Plains. J. M. Sheppards, Esq., of Keosanqua, lowa, has just arrived from the Plains, and gives us the following information : He left Council Bluff on the 5th of May last, and arrived at Weaverville on the first inst. He states that the grass was quite good on the north side of the Platte River. His company crossed this river at Fort Laramie. The grass on the south side of the Platte was so poor that many teams crossed to the north side before reaching Fort Laramie. And on the arrival at the Fort those teams that came along the north bank were in far better condition than those that came in from the south bank road. The Indians were all friendly until they arrived at Mary's River. Mr. Sheppard and a companion of his, kept daily notes from the time they started to the day they reached Weaverville. He states it as an interesting fact that from the 27th of May up to their arrival in California, they were in sight of snow, with the exception of one day, while they were in the n...

Sacramento City in Spots. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 6 August 1850

Sacramento City in Spots. BY A SACRAMENTAN. We are out on the plains, near the head of X street, looking towards the mountains. Casting a glance a little lower, and slightly to the right, our eyes rest on a high stiip of ground, which continues as far downward as the sight extends. Scattered over it are occasionally seen groups of the wide-spreading oak, that make our river scenery so beautiful. What a delightful, airy place, this high ground would be for country residences for business men ; just far enough from the bustle of business to be quiet, and yet sufficiently near for convenience. On the upper end of this ridge stands a horse, looking in the distance as large as an elephant, such is the peculiarly magnifying power of the atmosphere his morning. Farther down, between hady trees, we behold a tasteful cotage, of extreme beauty. Wonder what he owner would take for it ! It is just such a house, and in the very spot, where we would like to locate when we retire into private life...

Meeting of the Common Council [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 6 August 1850

Meeting of the Common Council .Monday Evening, Aug. 3d, 1850. The City Council m«t puraiant to adjournment, Aid. Tweed in the chair. The reading of the minutes was dispensed with ; the rules were suspended, and the regular er-dt-r of business dispensed with. Aid. Hardenberg read tha report of the Committee on the Levee. Aid. Tweed, as chairman of the committee, dissented from the report, being favorable to the other, but would still support it if the majority were favorable. The report was received by the Council. The views of Messrs. Binnry and Ruth were requested relative to the construction of the said levee. Mr. Binney thought -that if the earth was removed from the bank of the river, it would not wash away afterwards. Every kind of vegetable matter would have to be removed from under the embankment A railroad would be more expensive than throwing up the earth. Aid. Tweed propounded some question to Mr. Binney relative to the removal of the trees on the bank of the river. Mr. Bi...

For the Transcript, The Levee and the Common Council. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 6 August 1850

For the Transcript, The Levee and the Common Council. It is a source of extreme mortification to see public functionaries push to the last ex» tn-mity the best interests of the community. An open defiauce is thrown out, against all right, and the popular will, in the position of some members of the Common Council. They have been admonished that forbearance would soon cease to be a virtue, unless the whole line of policy adopted by the Council, in regard to the Levee question, underwent a change. Notwithstanding advice' popular feeling, and duty strongly indicates the necessity of change, the same course is yursued, and with an effrontery as shameless as it is bold ; the doctrine is openly avowed and advocated (and members are advised') that they ought or have the right to take contracts for the public work. The principle is rotten to the core, and its open advocacy goes far towards sustaining and confirming the arguments and conclusions of recent correspondents to your valuable pape...

Correspondence of the Transcript [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 6 August 1850

Correspondence of the Transcript DIFFICULTY AT THE NORTH. Taylorsvillk, July 25, 1850. Mr. Editor — Dear Sir : Permit me to call your attention to a most cold-blooded murder that took place on Feather river, about five milts below Nelson's Creek, a few days ago The particulars as far as I have been enabled to learn them are these. A party prospering on the river discovered that a company of men were holding a larger claim than they were entitled to by the law of the mines. After finding out how many men composed the company, they measured off what the law allowed them, and then jumped the balance. After having been at work some time, the parties claiming the mine ordered them off Of course, they did not choose to obey, when they commenced stoning, and the result was, that a man by name Clayton Bell, was actually stoned to death. A party of some forty miners hearing of it, went down the river for the purpose of investigating it, and also to arrest those who committed the act. There w...

From San Francisco. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 6 August 1850

From San Francisco. The New World arrived at this port last evening in seven hours and three-quarters sai'ing time from San Francisco, as we were assured by her officers. She was only seven hours and a-half on her last downward trip. That will do. We received, through Hawlsy & Co.'s and Munson's expresses, the San Francisco papers of yesterday morning, and in consequence appear before our readers this morning with 24 hours' later news from below than has before been in our power. This is an improvement as convenient to us as it will be welcome to our readers. The news is not particularly interesting. A new evening paper, called « The Picayune," made its appearance on Saturday evening. It has a taking name, is the first and only evening paper in California, and the editors and proprietors are men of talent and energy. We see nothing to prevent the complete success of the enterprise. The Episcopal Convention, which had been in session since the 24th July, closed its labors...

Tnln. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 6 August 1850

Tnln. The island of Cuba embraces an area of about 64,000 square miles, a white population of about 500,000, and an aggregate population of whites and colored of less than a million. This population is taxed annually to the amount of over $21,000,000, by assessments levied upon every imaginable article of industry, of production or of consumption, upon the xpenses of living and of dying, upon their relig. on and upon their infidelity, upon their litigation and upon their an.usemeuts. Tiiese taxes are expended in supporting an army of 20,000 men to intimidate the inhabitants, to man and support the Spanish navy which is almost entirely stationed h?re, to pay the salaries of officials aud to suppoit the feeble and profligate government in Spaiu. Cuba is governed by officials always sent from Spain. There has never been but one Captain General upon the island, who was a resident when appointed. Espeleta had for some time previous to his appointment in -1838, resided at Havana, as sub-i...
