Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 13 October 1849

The Amended City Charter.—To-day our citizens will decide the fate of the new Charter and also whether they are willing to contribute toward taking care of the sick, removing the vast amount of filth in our midst, and whether they will pay the paltry sum needed to regulate affairs in our unprecedentedly progressing city. The decision of this question belongs strictly to the ' resident citizens ' of this city, and we trust that no man will be allowed to vote who is known to reside elsewhere. The Convention.—We have nothing of especial interest from Monterey. Of course it is out of the question for us to give reports of committees and other regular proceedings of this body. ' It is good to be shifty in a new country,' ** Simon Suggs says ; but our friends at the Bay in their endeavors to get the Alta California to subscribers in this vicinity, made *he ' shift ' too much when they put the papers into the regular mail. The edition of the 30th of August has not come to hand yet although...

PLACER TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 20 October 1849

PLACER TIMES. VOL. I. Arrival of the Steamer California — The steamer California arrived at San Francisco on Tuesday, the 10th, but no news was received here until Sunday Iast. She brought no mail — neither the August nor September mails having arrived at Panama. This is very interesting intelligence, and is in perfect keeping with all the mail arrangements for California. We think it would be a good idea to import a few Hottentots or Bedouin Arabs to manage our Post Office affairs. It would be much better done. The steamer Unicorn will be dispatched with the mail on its arrival at Panama. Gen Taylor has issued a Proclamation setting forth that there is rea son to believe that an armed force is about fitting out in the United States to invade Cuba, and cautions all citizens against joining such an expedition. Bodies of men were being drilled in New York, New Orleans and other cities for this ''demonstration." The funeral of the late Albert Gallatin, who died in New York on the 12th ...
