OFFICIAL. NOTICE. HAVlNG been informed from various sources, of the great suffering and needy condition of many of those deluded and thoghtless persons, who in violation of their plighted faith to their country, have deserted from the Pacific squadron, since the 9th day of October of this year; and who are now paying the penalty of their transgression, under the combined suffering of disease, famine and exposure to an inclement winter; and that many of said deserters, truly repenting of their rash and ill-judged act of desertion, would return to their allegiance and their ships, but for the fear of the penalty which the laws might impose, I do hereby say to all such persons, who are chargeable with no other offence against the laws of the Navy than that of desertion — great as is the enormity — return immediately, to your duty, and you will have no cause to regret your confidence in my clemency and forbearance.

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 March 1849

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Alta California : — Sir — The people of this district having done me the honor to elect me one of the five delegutes to represent them in a Territorial Convention to be held at San Jose on the 5th of March inst., it becomes my duty to explain why I do not attend there accordingly. The Convention which the people had in view in electing their delegates, was one, in my opinion, in which there should be something approaching, at least, to a general representation from every part of the country, and not a Convention representing one particular section only. Partly because the day fixed, as was afterwards ascertained, was too early to obtain a representation from the south, and partly from the recommendation to postpone the Convention to the 1st of May, published by the Committee of Correspondence of this district, producing the impression there that it was to be so postponed, no delegates will appear from the large and important portion of territory ...

THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 15 March 1849

THE MINES. ALTA CALIFORNIA. San Francisco, Thursday, Mar. 15, 1849. Already the note of preparation has been sounded, and many have started on their summer tour in search of gold. The fine weather which was experienced for the two weeks previous to our last publication, appeared so sure an indication of the winter's end, that large parties left the town for the mines. The recent rains and snows however, we are sorry to say, must have proved a damper to their jackets if not to their spirits. All our accounts prior to the last two weeks represented the traveling as very good, and gold as abundant as ever. Provisions were in demand generally, at enhanced prices. It is probable that the last storms affected the traveling seriously, and it is well known that the rivers are now very high. For our own part we are inclined to believe that it is advisable not to go to the mines too early. The ground will be wet and cold for some time to come, and those who are too anxious to gather the preci...
