i For the Alia Ca 1 torn n. 'i'ltc .it I hi* [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 26 April 1849

For the Alta California The Rights of the People. Mr EDITOR :-- Have the people of California any rights? If so, what is their extent? Have they not certain rights, founded, based, and implanted in man's very nature — that belong to them as men — as human beings — rights that derive no force from human legislation, but trace their origin "up through nature to nature's God?" Are not those great principles of liberty and justice, that jproduced the American Revolution, — war promulgated in the immortal Declaration of Independence, and are now embodied in the American Constitution, State and Federal, the birth right of every American citizen? I must answer emphatically they are yet ours, as much so as they were the rights of our ancestors. We have inherited them by direct. clear, and unquestionable lineal descent. The Federal govenment is a government of limited powers — limited by a written constitution, published to the world, and placed among the enduring and solemn records of the c...

PLEASURE EXCURSION. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 26 April 1849

PLEASURE EXCURSION. ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, T'US'DAY, MAY 1, 1849. Since the great event of the arrival on the 28th of February last, of the ocean steamer California in this harbor, there has not been an incident of so much interest and importance to California, to San Francisco in particular, and perhaps to the world, as the First Steamboat excursion on the magnificent Bay of San Francisco. Important to the great commerce of the world as is the opening of the line of monthly steamers between this port and Panama, fraught as it is with so much interest to every commercial community, and under the peculiar circumstances, hailed as it has been with joy by millions as opening a speedy and safe communication with the golden land to which all eyes are intently turned, this excursion when looked upon as demonstrating the capability of navigating this mighty inland sea by steam, in vessels of a large class, is second only in the great chain of causes which is to eventually divert t...

Latest from the Mines. In the failure, from some unaccountable cause, of our regular correspondence from the mines, we are compelled to make up an article from the meagre and unauthenticated particulars in general circulation. In most of the rivers where the process of gold digging is carried on, the waters are still too high to work profitably. In most of the dry diggings the searcher is well rewarded, though we have not ascertained any precise information as to the quantities extracted. We understand that many of the new comers are sorely disappointed, and some from the United States are about to return in the California. We believe their disappointment does not follow so much from any doubts they may have as to the existence of great quantities of the precious ore, as from the life of toil, exposure and privation to which the gold hunter is subjected. The most reliable accounts state the number of persons actually engaged in the mines at about eight thousand; and probably one-hal...

FROM MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 26 April 1849

FROM MEXICO. By the arrival of the Hamburg brig Antonio, Captain Hargenfelt, from Mazatlan, we have intelligence to the 1st of April. The news is unimportant. The gold excitement seems to rage with unabated violence, for in addition to the many Americans already on the west coast and crossing Mexico, there are large parties of Mexicans en route from Tampico, Vera Cruz, and other Mexican cities. Mexico itself, though quiet, is supposed by those best able to judge, to be on the eve of another pronunciamiento in favor of Santa Anna. Americans crossing the country in small parties are liable to be insulted and annoyed ; in several instances they have been imprisoned, and we have been informed of one case where an American was shot by order o! an Alcalde. The bark Callao, hence for Panama, arrived at Mazatlan in the unprecedented passage of nine days and two hours from this port. She was to sail on the 3d April for Panama. The Sandwich Islands — By the last arrivals from Honolulu, H. I.,...

THE MARKET'S. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 26 April 1849

THE MARKETS. All kinds of piece goods are gradually falling in price, and the prospects are that the arrivals daily anticipated will reduce them still more and the general impression is that in a few months merchandize generally will scarcely bring costs and charges. Ready made clothing, especially the best articles, command good prices, and will probably continue to do so. Provisions of all kinds are in no danger of becoming too plentiful. Lumber and building materials of every description are in demand, and will yield a profit of one to three hundred per cent. The letter bags of the steamer will close to-day at ten o'clock, A. M. The steamer will positively sail this afternoon. List of passengers sailed per California. Mrs. Persifor F. Smith, Ogden, Hayes and 2 children, Grimes and son, McDougal and daughter, Bawden, Campbell, daughter and servant, Mr. W Luther, wife, and 3 children, Mr. L. H.
