OVERLAND EWMIGRATION THIS YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 20 April 1850

OVERLAND EWMIGRATION THIS YEAR. —The emigration 1 over the Plains this season, is likely to be very large, notwithstanding . the hardships endured by those who came over last year. A correspondent of the New York Tribune, writing from St. Joseph, Mo>, [under date of the 16th January, saysthat" from present appearances, it is likely that the overland emigration to California will commence here a month earlier than last season." Also, that " extensive preparations have been made for the reception of emigrants on their arrival here, and for fitting them out propeily for their long tramp across the prairie westward. Many of our citizens who intend taking up the line of march, are impatiently waiting for the time when they shall see the first blar^e of grass shooting up on the prairies. Cattle suitable for the plains, will be sold much higher than last season, the country having been almost drained to supply last year's emigration. " Numerous passenger and freight lines, are a...

California. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 20 April 1850

California. By the papers which have arrived in the last steamer, we see that California is still without the pale of the Union. We cannot understand to what this delay is owing. Our friends at the east certainly must know what the disposition of Californiant is. If independence and individuality, are characteristics of the American people, the very essence, the very personification of selfreliance, is to be found in the length and breadth of California. The past condition of things here, has fostered this feeling. With but very little government in many places, and with absolutely no government at all in the greater part of the mining district, our populace have been compelled to depend upon themselves; and the astonishing fact has been brought to light, that even with this state of things never has a country been more orderly — never has property been held more inviolable, or life more sacred, than in California, for the last twelve or fourteen months. Things move quickly here, an...

From Trinity River. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 20 April 1850

From Trinity River. Mr. Robert G. Shaw, arrived in this city a day or two since, direct from Trinity river, and Wings the latest intelligence from those distant mines. At the time that he left, April sth, there were large numbers of people on the various bars of the Trinity, and most of them were doing well. They were generally making from twenty-five to fif;y dollars a day. There were about 600 miners at work at a place called the Big Bar. Mr. S. spent the winter on the Trinity, and had good sue cess in mining, though he and his company labored under great disadvantages, the snow being, most of the time, four and five feet deep. About the first cf March, Mr. S. and four others, started for the mouth of the river, in a canoe. After travelling about thirty milea down the stream, and while Mr. S. and one of his fiiends were on shore, the canoe was capsized in the middle of a swift current, and the adventurers, unfortunately, drowned.

Plumas. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 20 April 1850

Plumas. As there appears to be considerable excitement, particularly below, in relation to the new city of Plumas, any thing connected with it, cannot fail to be of interest to our readers. The drawing of lots came off at the appointed time, crowds having collected from above and below, to view the new town site, and to be present at the drawing. There was a deal of excitement, and when the steamer came up to the landing with banners flying and with a crowd on board, she was welcomed with hearty cheers by those already on the spot. There was so much excitement for shares that the proprietors were compelled to part with one or two which they had reserved for themselves ; and lots changed hands at one hundred per cent advance. Plumas was, at that time, when the river was at its highest stage, several feet above the water. Some twenty buildings are in process of erection. Mr. Robinson and family, formerly of Sac r amen to, have already gone up, and we expect soon to receive an invitati...

Henri Sen. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 20 April 1850

Henri Sen. BY THRBNDOS. " I do riot forgive in 1 my friends the failure to know a fine character^ and to entertain it with thankful hospitality. When, at last, that which we have always longed for, is arrived,- and shfnes on us with glad rays out of that far celestial land, then to be coarse, then to be critical, and treat such a visitant with the jabber and suspicion of the streets, argues a vulgarity that seems to shut the doors of heaven. This is confusion, this the right insanity, when the soul no longer knows its own, nor where its allegiance, its religion, are due. — Is there any religion but this, to know, that wherever in the wide desert of being, the holy sentiment we cherish has opened into a flower, it blooms for me ? if none sees it, I see it ; lam aware, if I alone, of the greatness of the fact. Whilst it blooms, I will keep sabbath or holy time, and suspend my gloom, my folly and jokes. Nature is indulged by the presence of this guest." K. W. Emerson. If to welcome gen...

From San Francisco. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 20 April 1850

From San Francisco. Our latest dates from bel«w, are the Pacific News, of April l&*th. and the Alta California and Journal of Commerce, of April 17th and 18th. From the latter .sheet, we extract the following items : i Trinidad City. — A company of gentleman have located a site on Trinidad Bay, duly taken possession of the same according to law, and now make known the fact and locality of the Spot. Several gentlemen who have seen the site, declare it the best spot in the whole region for a town. They say it is a good shelter for shipping, and sufficiently deep, a cable's length from the shore, to oat a frigate, and moreover that the s.urfounding country is both well timbered and ertile. These advantages are all that are necessary to made a good commercial point on the coast ; and now that the location is made, the new town will, no doubt, rival San Francisco in the rapidity of its growth. We shall have something more extended to say upon the subject of a new city on that...

STANLIS, [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 20 April 1850

STANLIS, Written on tke first leaf of my Sister's Album, BY TIIREX DO S. My sister, when the forms of thy beloved Ones vanish in the mist of life, Stretch not thy arms forth after them, For here is strife. Press ever onwards T trusting, to thy grave. Work out thy work while here below, And let the mighty, headlong world Its- strange course flow. For friends are sunshine ; they but help thee grow. And when the work is done, they leave. To other duties they must go, Why for them grieve ? Yet. now and then, let memory linger back. And rest among the thoughts and friends That are no more Then upward soar To thy high ends. Thon'lt be re freshed by these thy loiterings Among the past, — the silent past, Who live in thought, — as then in sight,— And there stand fast. So, as the swell of some familiar tune Brings up forgotten thoughts to thee, May this book of thy heart a fair Magician be, To raise with magic wand the forms of friends, Harmoniously sweeping on In misty garments of the past,...

Scissorings. Theatrical. — The Royal Theatre, of Berlin, represents every week, one or more of the plays of Shakspeare. Henry the IV., Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, Coriolanus and Macbeth, have already been produced. Tke Germans" appreciate at least as highly as the English, the genius of the great dramatist, while the German translations of his plays, are the best existing in any foreign language. The commentaries of the German critics on Shakspeare, are richer and more profound than any in English. Among these stand pre-eminent those of Lessing, Tieck, Schlegel, and Herder. Mozart's superb opera of Don Giovanna, has been produced for the first time in this country, at the Astor Opera House in New York, with the whole effective strength of the company- ■ "We see that Herr Henry Alexander, is performing ' extraordinary feats ' at Salem and other places.
