ALTA CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 29 March 1849
ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, THURS'Y, MAR. 29,1849. The Legislative Assembly — The Alcalde — The Military, and the de facto Government. Our town has been convulsed within the last week with the intelligence that the military had arrayed itself against the People, and that the commanding officer of the Pacific Division had in effect pronounced the action of the legislative assembly for this district, null and void. We have not yet been enabled to procure the whole correspondence which has caused this excitement, for publication, although we have perused the most of it. Such as has been furnished us, we give to the public, with some reminiscences and remarks of our own which we deem pertinent to the occasion. On the hoisting of the American fllag in this place in July 1846, the American forces found here an Alcalde who had power corresponding to that (as near as we have ascertained) of a police magistrate in the U. States, who was authorized to sell one town lot of fifty varas squa...

PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 29 March 1849
PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT. PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT. We have received from Monterey the proceedings of a public meeting and election in that place, for the purpose of selecting delegates to represent them in a "Territorial Convention to be held at the Pueblo de San Jose in May next, or at such other time this year as shall be named by a majority of the delegates to said territorial Convention." We have not room to publish the proceedings this week. As the recent intelligence by the Oregon has rendered it probable that the slavery question has defeated action on the part of Congress for establishing a government in California, we are happy to see this movement by the citizens of Monterey. We recommend that other portions of the country act in accordance with the suggestions of the Monterey meeting. The address of the delegates which we published in our last number recommends the month of August aus most convenient and suitable. To this we have no particular objection, but the recommendati...

From the United States By the Ocean Steamer Oregon, Captain Pearson which arrived in this Bay on the 1st inst., we have dates to the 12th of February from New York city, and to the 18th of the same month from New Orleans. The news is important to this Territory inasmuch as it is now quite certain that Congress will not give us a territorial organization this year. The papers are literally filled with articles relating to California, some of them, of course, base fabrications. Column after column is taken up with the names of persons who have sailed for this modem El Dorado, and probably at no time since the Crusades has an event transpired which has so set the world agog, and almost turned over the foundations of society. We make a few quotations from papers placed in our hands by friends, but the crowded state of our columns renders it necessary to defer important extracts until our next.
