THE FIGHT OF PASO DEL MAR. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 17 November 1849
THE FIGHT OF PASO DEL MAR. BY BAYARD TAVLOR. Gusty and raw was the morning, A fog hung over the seas, And its gray skirts, rolling inland, Were torn by the mountain trees ; No sound was heard, but the dashing Of waves on the sandy bar, When Pablo of San Diego Rode down to the Paso del Mar. The pescadòr, out in his shallop, Gathering his harvest so wide, Sees the dim bulk of the headland Loom over the waste of the tide ; He sees, like a white thread, the pathway Wind round on the terrible wall, Where the faint moving speck of the rider Seems hovering close to its fall. Stout Pablo of San Diego Rode down from the hills behind ; With the bells on his gray mule tinkling, He sang through the fog and wind. Under his thick, misted eyebrows, Twinkled his eye like a star ; And fiercer he sang, as the sea-winds Drove cold on the Paso del Mar. Now Bernal, the herdsman of Corral, Had traveled the shore since dawn, Leaving the ranches behind him — Good reason had he to be gone ! The blood was st...

The Times Enlarged.—The subscribers and patrons of our Sacramento city newspaper enterprise are presented with the Placer Times on an enlarged sheet, printed on good paper, but with type considerably worn, which, however, we design to shortly improve upon. Ample space is thus afforded advertisers, and we trust the citizens of Sacramento will not be unmindful of the facilities opened for an increase of business, nor meet our humble efforts only half way. A generous encouragement will enable us to do still better in the course of another month, and by the addition of a good job printing office, our establishment will be second to none in the country.
THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 17 November 1849
THE ELECTION. The Election for State Constitution, and officers thereunder, took place throughout California on Tuesday the 13th inst. In this city the polls were rather thinly attended, the voting coming off in the face of a blinding rain storm. Everything passed off very quietly, considering the numerous candidates and cliques that were operating during the day. Peter H. Burnett is probably elected Governor, and John McDougal Lieutenant Governor. It is difficult to say who are elected Representatives to Congress. We give the returns so far as we have been able to obtain them. The entire vote polled was only 1,863, with the following result : SACRAMENTO CITY. (Official.) For the Constitution 1850 Against the Constitution 13 For Governor. 1st Dist. 2d Dist. 3d Dist. Total.

(Correspondence of the Placer Timea j [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 17 November 1849
[Correspondence of the Placer Times.] San Francisco, Nov. 11, '49. Mr. Editor:—' The sound of the church going bell' never sounded more welcome than on this damp and cheerless Sabbath-day morning, when all human kind partakes of the distressed aspect of inanimate nature. It removes one many thousand miles back to the scenes of youth, and akin to inspiring plea surable emotions, fills the heart with sadness. Truly 'the melancholy days have come,' and in San Francisco the full extent of this touching sentiment is realized. This is Sunday and a gloomy day withal, for it has rained with little intermission all the night, and at this juncture the skies are particularly leaky and cullenderlike. The streets are nearly deserted. for walking may be spelled wading, and the bar-rooms are crowded with a steaming, murmuring, comfortless looking set of mortals, as ever were congregated with in doors to look out upon rainy weather ; but, worse than all, the indications are unmistakably favorable t...

New Rock Discovered.—Capt. Lindsey. of the British schooner Amelia, reports having discovered a rock in the Pacific Ocean not laid down in the charts. He says : On the 25th of December, 1848, during a calm, I discovered an island, or rock, in lat. 19° 20 North, lon. 141° 15 30 East. It apapeared about forty feet high, and four miles in length ; very barren, and of a dark brown color. I feel confident of its position, as I proved the rate of my chronometer only two days previously at the island of Grigan and Assumption.

On being pressed to say why she wanted to know. she replied that she long had a notion of destroying her child, that she had purchased poison five times for it, and that once, just as she was going to give it arsenic in its pap, it smiled so prettily in her face that she had not the heart to destroy it...

WHEN FORTUNE BEAMS. When fortune beams around you. When hearts with pleasure leap; And hopes and joys surround you — Forget not those who weep ! When friendship's smile invites you To bless and to be blest ; When every charm delights you — Oh, think of the distrest ! When golden gales betide you, As if by Heaven decreed, And plenty stands beside you — Forget not those who need ! When pleasure's cup seems endless, Oh, prove it without end ; By being to the friendless In every hour a friend !
From the Louis>ville Journal. GO AHEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 November 1849
From the Louisville Journal. GO AHEAD. Never doubt a righteous cause ; Go ahead! Throw yourself completely in; Conscience shaping all your laws, Fearlessly through thick and thin, Go ahead! Do not ask who'll go with you; Go ahead! Numbers! spurn the coward's plea; If there be but one or two, Single-handed though it be, Go ahead! Though fierce waters round you dash, Go ahead! Scale them ! certainly you can ; Let them proudly dare the skies — What are mountains to a man? Go ahead! Though fierce waters round you dash, Go ahead ! Let no hardship baffle you ; Though the heavens roar and flash, Stiil, undaunted, firm and true, Go ahead! Singular Amusement for Ladies. — The following remarkable account is from a French paper by the last steamer.
