SELECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 7 May 1850

SELECTED. TEARS. In boyish years how oft are tears By liule griefs compelled! What tals3 he hears awaking- fears, Till his little heart is swelled To overflowing ! A mother's care hath taught him where He is who heareth prayer ; And every night, with fresh delight, Beside that mother kneeling, He repeats that little prayer, With tears of childish feeling. Now overglowing Are hi 3 cheeks, as ashamed he seeks His mother as lie comes from play, On her bosom to confess his little heart's distress, For some wrong he's done that day. Sarely there's no other, like a loving mother, That can soothe an erring heart. And religion's joy impart To the tender soul of childhood. By the fireside — in the wildwood — Bending o'er his book, or beside a brook, She interprets with a loving look, Each pleasant thought, or sight, or sound, That makes his little heart rebound, Till it o'ers wells — till from it wells The raptured tear. A month has fled — and she that led Her boy beside that brook, is dead ...

MY YOUNGEST. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 7 May 1850

MY YOUNGEST. They say my youngest is a pet, And has too much her way; It can'; be so I think, and yet I would not dare say nay. For if my memory serve me right, And truth must be confessed, Each youngest that has blessed my sight Has seemed to be loved best. Thus one by one has shared the love Of a fond father's heart ; The youngest tenderer thoughts could mov< Than those who had the start. The oldest was to me most dear, So was the next — so all; The youngest came my age to cheer, On her my love did fall. ' Tis not that she is loved the most, But she is loved the last : The youngest may my fondness boast, But so could all the past. My youngest, then, is not a pet, More than each child before, I think so certainly — and yet T'hev say I love her more. Mary Howitt is the least in the world of an authoress. She is a mild middle-aged, intelligent, and lady-like English matron, who is fine-looking and has made a very narrow escape from being beautiful. She dresses not as a Qua...

St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad.— The map, published in Boston, by W. L. Dearborn, Civil Engineer, (with his letters to P. P. F. Legrand,) designates a line of railroad identical with the line delineated in the map, which is annexed to a pamphlet, published at St. Louis, by I. Loughborough. In this St. Louis pamphlet, (the authenticity of which is certified by the St. Louis Committee,) I. Longsborough thus demonstrates that this route is already sufficiently known to warrant a definite conclusion in favor of its being a good Railroad route : " Let us now proceed (he says) to a topographical examination of the route from St. Louis to the bay of San Francisco. The route which we shall propose for this great railroad is not one through a region unknown to science and the world. We make no "guesses," as has been done, and must be done by all who advocate the claims of other routes. We do not say that passes through the mountains " may" be found, and that the "probabilities" are tha...

Machinery. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 9 May 1850

Machinery. In this age of the world the chance of success is small to any one who depends entirely upon main strength. Every day witnesses some improvement, by which those early to take advantage of it steal a march on all competitors. Modern genius is doing wonders in every department of life. The world is becoming civilized, if we may use the expression, by steam; and electricity is bringing hitherto distant lands into close proximity, and binding them together in nervous sympathy. The great saving in labor which has been brought about by modern improvements,and the introduction of machinery, has already had, and must continue to have an important influence upon the affairs of the world. And every new invention, which economises in this respect, should be considered a blessing to society. An important field for inventive genius, is opened in California. There are millions of acres of land on our mountain slopes, every auriferous foot of which is destined, by means of water applied...

From the Middle Fork. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 9 May 1850

From the Middle Fork. We have been permitted to make the fol- lowing extracts from a letter addressed to a commercial house in this city. We publish it with the assurance that it is from a gentleman not interested in influencing miners in the direction from which it emanates, but that it is a private letter, which the writer did not expect would be published. It will be found quite interesting. Macsville, Middle Fork, April 29th. Dear Sir: — This place has grown into quite a town since I came up here, and is known by a half a dozen different names, among which Macsville appears to be the most popular, on account of the great number of "Macs" in this place. There are about twenty-five trading houses or stores here, a few of which are in tents and canvass houses, but the greater part of them are substantial frame buildings. Besides these, there are half dozen gambling houses, and three amphitheatres or large round tents. Each of the latter have a band of music employed, and appear to ...

bloody Doings on the North Fork. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 9 May 1850

bloody Doings on the North Fork. About two weeks ago a party of Indians came stealthily upon a few miners who were sleeping after their work was over, in their tents, on the North Fork, some twenty miles above Auburn. Before the Indians gave any warning to the whites of their presence, they killed two, wounded another, and then succeeded in making their escape. On Friday of last week, a trader, who was travelling with his team, was surprised by Indians when about fifteen miles above Auburn. — Two arrows from their bows took effect on his person, and he only saved his life by a precipitate flight. They carried off his coat, which he left on his wagon, with six hundred dollars' worth of dust in the pocket. They also robbed his wagon of the valuable goods it -contained, and killed several of his oxen. The accounts of these outrages spread rapidly ; and on Saturday last a company of about twenty men, part of whom were mounted on horses, started from Auburn and Kelly's Bar, in pursuit of...
