ADVERTISEMENTS. HAMILTON CITY. THIS city, beautifully situated on the west bank of Feather River, is surrounded by a country skirted by the Table Mountains, being as healthy and luxuriant as it is lovely and productive ; is bountifully supplied with pure water, and surrounded with excellent grazing ; is situated 25 miles above Yuba City and Marysville, and is the highest point of steam navigation. As a central position for a general depot for the chief Gold Mining Districts, it stands unrivalled, being within a few miles of the most productive diggings on the Feather River, and being the starting point for the rich mines on Butte Creek, Dry Creek, and West and North Branches of Feather River ; it also the exact point where the route diverges across the plains for Sacramento, Trinity and Shaste Rivers, and is c the"'last place where parties, bound that route, can proclfr^ fresh water, until proceeding a distance of 20 miles. These are advantages of no ordinary efflractor, mid.such as...

Necessity- for Tliorougli Organization of Society In California. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 26 March 1851
Necessity- for Tliorougli Organization of Society In California. In the " Union " of the 24th. we promised ; to apply our remarks to the forming society j of this country, and exhibit our views of the \ manner in which the facts alluded to should i affect it. It seems that every feeling manifested by our friends who have returned to the Atlan- ! tic States, is complimentary to California : j that the prejudices of disappointment — the bias of mortified pride — could not perpetually silence those impressions which had been quietly and calmly impinged upon their minds, whilst enjoying our charming climate, and commingling with the gold stirring events of this wonderful country. When such indications begin to re-act upon California — when such new motives for immigration to the Pacific State begin to manifest themselves in different quarters of the world, then indeed is it time for California to look well to the organization of society. We are not now called upon to respond to the want...
Gross Perversion of Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 26 March 1851
Gross Perversion of Justice. The following statement of facts which have been handed to us for publication, reveal a condition of things in reference to crime that must be corrected, or ruin the society in which they exist: On Tuesday evening last, about eight o'clock, two men entered a bar room on Second street, kept by an old Mexican, one of them by the name of Tom Edwards. — As soon as he came in. he commenced acting in a most indecent manner, and on the bar keeper remonstrating with him. he pulled out a pistol and fired at him. Fortunately i the old man escaped the ball by stooping down behind the counter, and placing a chair before him. The cries of the people in the house, and the noise of the firing soon attracted the attention of the passers-by, and the two individuals thought it better to clear ! out. It appears, however, that they were i not to be so easily baulked of the sport of murdering a Mexican. After about a quarter of an hour, when the momentary excitement had subs...
Dr. Grove Deal's Lecture. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 26 March 1851
Dr. Grove Deal's Lecture. POETRY AS A STUDY. When a speaker or writer endeavors to gain the attention of an audience, for the purposes of his own interest or emolument, his hearers have large scope for accusation, if they be sufferers by their attendance. Whoever pays by their time or attention for a lecture, by which they are neither benefitted nor amused, has reason enough to complain — if they be disappointed, they have no revenge but ridicule, and thus contrary to the practice in other cases, have to solace themselves, by making the best of a bad bargain. In presenting, however, the^. present composition, I ask no indulgence, nor make any apology, either for the subject or manner in which it is treated. If I cannot improve or refine your tastes, on a subject so high, so pure — if I can only direct your minds to some extent, to and in this province of thought and feeling, where fancy revels — imagination clothes itself with life — the heart's best affections gain power and beauty...
For tho Daily Union, A Returning Gold Hunter. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 26 March 1851
For tho Daily Union, A Returning Gold Hunter. Mr. Editor: — I was yesterday called upon, by an old acquaintance, who was just ontho eve of starting for his home in the "Prairie State/ He was one of the many thousands who left the western frontier in the spring of '49. From the same neighborhood, six others accompanied him. After surmounting all the various difficulties and hardships incident to a trip across the plains and mountains, the company reached the new El Dorado, where they soon made preparations to pursue the tedious and laborious vocation of gold-digging. Early in the Spring of '50. we hear of those young men being 150 miles up the Sacramento river, on the eve of visiting this* city to obtain a supply of provisions. They had been successful beyond expectation, in their gold-washing operations. Each one had five or six hundred dollars in his pocket, and with light and buoyant spirits, they launched out in canoes on the swift and foaming Sacramento, to perform their errand ...

Through Freeman &amp; Co's Express. The steamer Confidence arrived at her landing this morning, at 3 o'clock. From the San Francisco papers, we copy the following items: A villanous attempt was made to blow up a house on Rincon Point, on Sunday night. A considerable quantity of powder had been placed, under the side, and ignited, but did no other damage than to blacken and char the clapboards, nearly setting them on fire. Got. McDougal passed through San Francisco on Monday, on his way to San Jose. The Indian Commissioners have concluded a treaty of peace with the Indians on the Tuolumne. the tribes pledging themselves to till the land, and hold a perpetual peace with the whites, upon the conditions that an allotment of 100 acres of land be made to each family, and that they be furnished with horses, cattle, seed, farming implements, a blacksmith, farmer, and other persons to instruct them.

CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 26 March 1851
CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE. ■ I.l'rom lrue .Manuaru.j IN SENATE. San Jose, 'March 22. In the Senate, to-day : Mr. Broderick made a point against the Indian war, operating in the shape of a bill to reduce the per diem pay to the volunteers in all future volunteers. In the course of the debate, Mr. Uroderi&lt;&amp; stated the astounding fact that under the bill passed the other day, (allowing the Governor to call out the volunteers, &amp;c.) the expenses of the "war against the State were running up at the rate of over six thousand dollars per day. Mr. Robinson commented with much severity and point upon the log-rolling and interested movements by which all this special legislation for an Indian war had been driven through the Legislature. Mr. Miller (of Mariposa) wished to vindicate the Governor from the imputations cast upon him. in reference to his supposed connection with the Indian War Bill. He had simply done his duty. The people of Mariposa had sent a memori...
