The M'Laughlin Mania—The Phantom Californian. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 27 April 1850

The M'Laughlin Mania— The Phantom Californian. From tho New York Sunday Atlas. The most extensive and most amusing ' saw ' that ever was ; run in this community, was put in motion in the early part of last week, by some villainous wag, which with . the assistance of each successive victim, has been most successfully ' and humorously kept in motion up to the present time. Thousands of our good citizens have been handsomely ' "sold," and' have earnestly followed; from house : to house, in search of Frank M'Laughlin, the rich Californian, who has just arrived from El Dorado, via New; Orleans, having in his possession a letter for them. •. No i class has been exempt from the " sell," and there are few of the " boys " and men about town," who have not beeu seen at some public house inquiring for Mr. M'Laughliu. ; . The original joker probably only intended it for a few of • his friends, but it took so well that the friends of some of our popular public houses have run it for * their- ben...

Sacramento City as a Pert of Entry. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 27 April 1850

Sacramento City as a Pert of Entry. The reasons for making Sacramento City a port of entry arc so numerous and well grounded that its citizens have a right to demand of the Home Government that a Custom House should be established, and the port thrown open. It is situated at the head of ship navigation on the Sacramento. A few miles above the city a bar stretches across the river, and the water from that point up is so shoal as to be navigable only to steam boats and vessels of light draft While from Sacramento down to San Francisco Bay, th« navigation is perfectly plain and simple to any one who knows anything of the river. Even at the very lowest stages of the water last summer and fall, vessels came up here drawing ten feet and a half of water. We are intimately acquainted with a gentleman connected with the navy who acted as pilot for several of them. As instances we give the following : The barque Undine came up late in August, last drawing ten feet. The bark Ann Welch, 390 ton...

The Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 27 April 1850

The Ball. " How the old time returns upon me." It was a brilliant affair. But it continually waved the magic wand which evoked from the dreamy past, shapes that called us back into happy days. And, in thought, we stood among the scenes of yore; Perhaps, this is its highest encomium. It was a mirecle such as California only is capable of working. But a few month? )ack, and where this busy mart now stands, stood trees, with heavy tops and silent, save when sighing at the lovely breezes, as they passed on their way, never to return again* We despair of making our friends at the east realize that a ball which would bo considered brilliant anywhere, came off here, in the wilds of California, and in a town bul a year old. Yet, such is the fact. To celebrate the completion of the Pacific Theatre, a few of our citizens conceived the idea of a 'rand civic ball. No sooner said than done. The theatre was immediately prepared for the occasion. The spacious stage and that part of the house inten...

New Towns in Northern California. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 27 April 1850

New Towns in Northern California. Within a few months past several new i towns have been laid out in the upper country, some of which bid fair to be places of considerable trade. Most of theso settlements are up the Feather and Yuba rivers, and on the Sacramento. At present, it would not be proper to make comparisons between the advantages of the various localities, but it may be interesting to some to know the advancement which these towns have alI ready made. We shall therefore give a brief sketch of all the places we have seen, commencing at Makysvillk. — This town lies on the north bank of the Yuba River, less than a mile above its junction with Feather River, and we believe about sixty miles above Sacramento City. At the highest stage of the river I this month, most of the town was frcm fnur [to six feet above water. It was laid out in jthe fore part of last winter, and the first buildings were put up about the middle of January. It has the appearance of most | new towns in Cal...

C., on whose estate gold has been found, recently obtained a large lump of ore weighing twenty-eight pounds, which it was expected, when fluxed, would yield *twenty-seven pounds of pure gold !* ¶ What the North and the South must do, after all.—The Worcester Palladium concludes some sensible remarks about the folly of the present controversy, between the North and the south, with the declaration of the worthy pair, who, after a long series of family bickerings, finely came to the decision : "It is of no use for us to have a quarrel, for as sure as we do, we shall have to make it up in the end." ¶ Colonel Fremont.—Report says it is still the intention of fiolonel Fremont to complete his surveys of all that portion of our country west of the Rocky mountains by a tour down the Colorado. ¶ Honor to an Elevated Typo.—The printers of Albany have proffered a publi...

A WARM STRAIN [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 27 April 1850

A WARM STRAIN Let him kiss me. let him kiss me, With the kisses of his mouth ; For his bursting lip is glowing With the glories of the south. O, the rosy wine is luscious, In his chalices of gold ; But his love to me is sweeter. Yea, a thousand, thousand lold ! And the very air that dances : Neath the numbers ot his name. Smites my soul with dreamy music, And my heaving breast with flame. For I love him, yea, I love him ! So that c'en his name shall be, Like the breeze that brngs the odor From the blossom-laden tree. The whole number of passengers who have left the various ports on the Atlantic coast, for California, during the eighteen months past, is estimated at fifty-three thousand, and the number of vessels at eight hundred. During the period elapsed between the 6th of December and the 4th instant, 2,275,500 feet of lumber have been shipped at Boston for California, besides a large quantity of dressed doors, window and door frames, clapboards, &c.
