Important Message of the President. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 3 April 1850
Important Message of the President. p^ In looking over our exchanges, although - we found frequent mention made of the President's message in relation to California, its Government, &amp;c M yet it was with some difficulty that we could find the message itself. ' As many of our readers will probably be unable to procure it, and as we are confident : that ' it, and the accompanying documents, cannot fail to be of deep interest to every Californian, although they occupy a large . space in our issue of to-day, we have determined to give them in full. j The message was sent to the House of Representatives in reply to a call made by that body for information concerning the Territory, of California. The President lays before them his views touching the matter, and informs them of the steps he has taken relative to our new. State. Accompanying the message will be found letters of instruction, ; addressed, to Wm. V. Voorhies, Esq., and Hon. Thomas Butler King, prior to their departu...
Henri Herz. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 3 April 1850
Henri Herz. Herz is among us ; — the soul of harmony, the delight of the musical world, the great composer, and perhaps the best pianist of the present day. In looking over the list of passengers that arrived last steamer, almost hid in the multitude of names that one has never heard before, appeared the short and modest name of Henri Herz. There was nothing to distinguish that name ; nothing to tell us that a genius had come into our midst, borne by the mighty stream of emigration ; nothing to show that a kindred spirit with Handel, with Beethoven, with Haydn, with Rossini, had arrived. But the community of San Francisco were surprised to learn that ii enri Herz, the great pianist, to whose music thousands in the capitals of Europe and America had listened with rapture, had actually wandered to this far shore. We should as soon thought of seeing Macready or Ellen Tree, upon the boards of San Francisco and Sacramento, as Herz among us, and were at a loss to know what should have ind...

The Election on Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 3 April 1850
The Election on Monday. On Monday last the streets of Sacramento presented a scene of excitement such as we were totally unprepared to see. Bands of music paraded, pistols were fired, and on the whole, no one could mistake that it was election day. Horsemen were dashing through the streets calling the citizens to the polls, and innumerable ticket distributors importuned each voter, crowding around him, hustling him on, and loading the hands of the poor confused hombre with ballot? on which was every conceivable combination of names. There were three parties in the field, viz : the "No Organization," the " Regular Democratic" and the "Rancho" parties. Grant headed the latter, being their candidate for Mayor ; and, mounting the head of a pork barrel, he rallied his forces to the polls. If talking would do any good, f\nd if every thing he said with regard lo his own high qualifications and the utter incapacity of the other candidates was to be believed all would have to grant Grant to ...
Tehama Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 3 April 1850
Tehama Theatre. We dropped into this popular place of amusement last evening, when the play of " The Rent Day, or Villany Unmasked," was about half finished. The seats were full The character of Martin Haywood was taken by Mr. Nesbitt, while Mrs. Kerby sustained that of Rachel Haywood. As we had not listened to the firbt part of the play, we were not, of course, prepared to enter into the entire spirit of the scene which was enacting when we went in ; but so perfectly had Mr. Nesbitt and Mrs. Kirby comprehended their parts, and so thrillingly did they enact the scene where Haywood suspects his wife of inconstancy, that we had no time for surprise at the talent displayed, but were immediately transported into that state of sympathy so necessary to enjoy truly a thrilling drama. We are happy to see that Mrs. Kerby is fast recovering her great fault, that of restraining herself too much in scenes where passion is to be depicted. That effort she makes to avoid anything of the ranting or...
A Rehearsal. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 3 April 1850
A Rehearsal. We have heard of a cargo of warming-pans being sent to Cuba by some sharp speculator, and of Dame Fortune's smiling upon him by the discovery which the inhabitants of that warm clime made, that the aforesaid warm-ing-pans could be put to admirable use as dippers in the manufacture of sugar. We have heard of " Great Caesar dead and turned to clay," stopping "a hole to keep the wind away;" but the most singular instance of quaint appropriation, and at the same time the most serio-comic, which we have ever seen, occurred on Monday last, during the heighth of the election excitement. ¶ While Grant was expatiating to the amused crowd,—while electioneerers for Bigelow and Flenley were shouting, and *mulas* neighing in their most sonorous and consumptive style, —just as the stage from Mormon Island drove down J street, there dashed round the corner of second and K streets in the most approved style, a hearse with driver and out rider. In the tail of the hearse sat two serious ...
Benefit of Advertising. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 3 April 1850
Benefit of Advertising. The Pacific News of Saturday last, makes the following just remarks on the benefits to be derived from advertising : We have been allowed the pleasure of perusing a letter from an extensive provision dealer at Madison, Indiana, to one of the heaviest wholesale houses in this city, received by the last steamer, which shows the advantage of advertising in the Pacific News. The letter is dated January 24, 1850, and by permission, we make the following extract "We are largely engaged in the provision business in this place, and have been for a number of years Recently our attention has been directed to your place as a market for articles of provision : but having no acquaintance in your city, and being without reliable advices we have not ventured to make shipments, although we have felt an inclination to do so.

Gathered Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 3 April 1850
Gathered Flowers. ' for the Sacramento Transcript.] BY THRENDOS. A mother's love ! How sweetly does it reach to us from afar, growing stronger as it increases, and fonder as time rolls on ! It is a singular fact, and yet one which we believe is universally recognized, that each generation looks forward to the rising with a far more absorbing love than it does back to the setting. Its arms reach out to guard it from injury ; its thoughts are ever of its welfare ; and when its hairs silver over, and its brow is furrowed with the wrinkles of many years, still does it rejoice in ils offspring ; fondly doting over its honor, and weeping over its disgrace. Still does it bear with it, more ready to forgive than censure, more ready to forget the past and to assist in raising from the very frequency of its fall! It is well that it is so. For manhood seems placed between the two generations ; and, while the rising cling to it for support, the setting lean upon it in their decline. To one, how...
