MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 31, 1849 ARRIVAL OF THE CALIFORNIA! ONE MONTH LATER FROM THE U. STATES!! The U. S. Pacific Mail Steamship California, Captain Budd, arrived from Panama on Friday night the 28th instant having left that port on the 5th instant. She brought up 289 passengers, among them a number of ladies. She also brought a large mail. The excitement relative to California instead of abating appears to have increased and the rush was as great as ever. We make the following summary of news from our various files: [From the N. Y. Tribune Nov. 13.] At this issue, public attention is forcibly attracted by the unusual amount of intelligence which has reached us at once from almost every part of the world. The most inspiring news of all is that of the establishment of Freedom in California, by the unanimous voice of the thousands of her people This result has long been looked for at the north, and the consummation elicits a universal expression of delight.

The Governor* Message. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 31 December 1849

The Governor* Message. It is with extreme reluctance that we eonfest ourselves disap|iointed in this important emanaiion from the head of tho now State Government. And at the risk of being deemed captious and hypercritical, we must claim the right to express our views in relation to its merits, both as a literary production and as a State paper. From the reputation of Governor Burnett, as a gentleman of acquirements and information upon all questions of State pottojft we had expectod an abler, a more definite and comprehensive document. As a literary production, it is far below what we had a right to expect,— the various recommendations being crude and undigested, and devoid both of elegance and clearness of diction. Messages, although requiring tho utmost deliberation, the deepest thought and the clearest expression, are generally compiled in haste ; ami into this fault has our new Executive permitted hiius.lf to fall. He commences with an allusion to the novel and interesting stat...

I'iitui >miirt 111 «!>< Mint*! [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 31 December 1849

Disturbance in the Mines! By a gentleman who came passenger in the Mint, which left Stockton on Saturday last, we are pained to learn that a disturbance has taken place in the mines on the Calaveras between the Chilenos and Americans. The facts, as near as we can get at them are as follows: On the night of the 26th instant a party of armed Chilenos, ntunbering some 200 attacked an American camp at the Calaveras diggings consisting of about twenty persons. Three Americans were killed, three others severely wounded, and some sixteen taken prisoners. The Chilenos said they were acting under orders from the authorities, and they took the wounded men and prisoners in the direction of Stockton, not even allowing the wounds of the unfortunate men to be dressed. News of the affair had reached Stockton, causing much excitement, and an armed party of some 12 Americans had started in pursuit of the offenders, and it was supposed that many more would follow. Our informant, in whom we have the g...

Robberies on the Isthmus. We are informed by passengers who came by the last steamer, that the natives on the Isthmus have no maintained their character for honesty which was their distinguishing trait when the immigration across the Isthmus first commenced. They have ceased to consider honesty a politic principle, and have recently committed several robberies. One gentleman was stripped of a considerable amount of money. He was with others in a canoe, managed by natives, who made fast to a bank at a certain point of the river, went up to a hut, returned soon after, accompanied nied by a number of others, and robbed the Americans of all their valuable property. We also learn that a box of gold dust, shipped by the October steamer, by a mercantile house here, was opened, and five hundred ounces abstracted. It is supposed to have been stolen upon the Isthmus; but we are inclined to think that no native performed the job. We think it would be well for persons crossing the Isthmus at th...
