MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 14, 1850 The Mails on the lsthmus. We were not aware until within a few days — since the publication of a recent article upon the mails — of the nature of the contract for the transit of the mails across the Isthmus from Chagres to Panama. We are indebted to a friend who is well informed upon the matter, for an elucidation. It appears that for this special service the contracting parties are Uncle Sam and the Government of Nueva Grenada. A contract was entered into with the last mentioned power to transport "the bag or package' of mailable matter at the rate of $30, for every hundred pounds weight, and all over that weight at a materially reduced rate for every hundred pounds. At the time the contract was made it was supposed that one package would contain the mailable matter, and the rates of transportation were such that the amount named was amply sufficient. Subsequent events, which could not have been anticipated, have caused hundreds and thousands of emi...

'lh« Pilot Law. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 14 January 1850

'lh« Pilot Law. Our last accounts of the doings of the Legislature, stated that an act entitled, An act in relation to the appointment of pilots for the different ports of California," had passed the Assembly. We are uninformed as to the provisions of the act, or the mode and manner of appointment. It is highly necessary that some pilot law should bo passed, that pilots should be created, and that proper rules for their government should be adopted. We should havo none but competent men, and they should be well paid for their services ; but, at tho same, time, tho interests of the maratime community should be consulted, and the tax upon them be made aa light as practicable. Above all, there should be no monopoly permitted, no association suffered to exist to screw usurious fees for piloting a vessel into a safe harbor. The evils existing at the great and important port of New Orleans from the perfect monopoly which there prevails, have' long and justly been complained of Hut while t...

The distress and devastation which this untoward event will cause, is truly deplorable to contom plate. We had hoped that the waters, which were not materially rising when our last accounts were dated, would abate, hut their course was "onward, onward."' Inch by inch they insidiously rose, until the streets ran riven* ami the whole banks of the river wero coverod with the rushing flood. Those who were camping in tents gathered up what they could lay their hands upon and fled to higher ground. Alarm and panic spread upon every side, and no means to check the dire and dread calamity could be devised. On swept the tide...

LOCAL MATTERS [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 14 January 1850

LOCA L MATTERS Funrutl nf Mr. Btrk.—'Yhe solemn strains of a funeral march resounded yenturday in our streets as a long funeral cortege passed onward to the grave.
