A Gambling Anecdote. A correspondent of the New York Spirit of the times, says : ¶ The best genuine 'Yankee trick' I ever saw, occurred at the Londonderry (N. H.) fair. A Yankee was strolling about the tavern, among ganblers, &amp;amp;c., when one of them came up and asked him to play cards with him. He replied that he did, not know much about any game, and that he never gambled. ¶ 'Well,' said the gambler, 'I'd like to play a game with you. What will you play with me for?' ¶ 'Well,' said our friend, 'I'll play a game with you for fifty cents.' ¶ Down they sat; the gambler put down fifty cents, and asked our friend if he begged. ¶ 'No,' said he, ' I've got a very good hand—l don't beg.' ¶ 'Well,' replied the other, 'put your money down.' ¶ 'What money?' asked Jonathan. ¶ 'Why, your fifty cents.' ¶ 'I didn't say I'd put down fifty cents. You asked me what I'd play *for*, and I said fifty cents—and I'd play you till night for fifty cents a game!' ¶ The gambler snatched up the card...

Provisional Government. ! TO THE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 22 March 1849

Provisional Government. TO THE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA. The undersigned Delegates elect to a ConConvention proposed to be held, for the formation of a Provisional Government for California, respectfully submit to their fellow citizens the following statement, as explanatory of the causes which have hitherto delayed the assembling of the Convention, and in their judgment would render a still further postponement highly expedient and proper. The first meeting in favor of a Provisional Government, was held in the Pueblo de San Jose, on the 11th of December, 1848. That meeting recommended that the Convention should assemble on the 2d Monday ot January, 1849. The second Meeting was held in San Francisco, on the 21st of December, 1848, and in view of the pressing necessity of some immediaie organization, recommended Monday the 5th of March, 1849, as the day for the Convention to meet. The question of time was deliberately considered by the San Francisco meeting, and it was believed that a su...

Till'. STATE OF CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 22 March 1849

THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA. On the 11th of December last, Mr. Douglass introduced into the United States Senate the bill which we give below, providing for the admission of California into the Union as a State. About the end of December, the same gentleman brought forward an amendment to said bill which makes provision for the division of California into seventy-six districts, from each of which a delegate is to be elected to a State Convention for drafting a constitution, to be submitted to the U. S. Congress. It is very difficult to say what has been the fate of this motion, but the impression that we get from the newspapers and from private correspondence is to the effect that Congress has passed a law providing for the admission of California as a state. We believe tha in the event of the failure of this bill, a territorial government has been organized. A Bill for the Admission of California to the Union as a State. Be it enacted, by the Senate and House of Representatives of the ...
