Col. Mason and Col. Benton. To the Editors of the Alta California: Gentlemen: — Paul the Apostle concludes his epistle to the Romans in these words, " written to the Romans from Corinthus, and sent by Phebe servant of the church." Mr. Benton, borrowing from Paul, concludes his to the Californians with "written at Washington City — and sent by Col. Fremont." The Apostolic forms in which this epistle is clothed, shouId exempt it from every root of bitterness from all hatred and malice, and present its benign author deeply imbued with that spirit of charity so eloquently commended by his great predecessor — "That charity which suffereth long and is kind, which is not easily provoked, which vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly." But unfortunately Mr. Benton loses his temper, and with that all his Apostolic claims. He followed in the footsteps of the Holy Apostle no farther than to send his epistle by the servant of his church. Upon this epistle which ap...

ALTA CALIFOfiM S. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 3 May 1849

ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, WE'SDAY, MAY 9, 1849. The Indian Troubles — The difficulties with the Indians are beginning to assume a more and more menacing character, and sound policy would seem to dictate the propriety of sending bodies of troops into the disturbed districts. The Indian trade, one of the most lucrative in the country, is almost entirely broken up, and many of our worthiest citizen, will suffer largely thereby. This state of affairs is deeply to be regretted, and what is worse, it is believed generally, that it will to a great extent, prevent the successful working of the mines the present season. In addition to other outrages, an extended account of which will be published in our next, we learn verbally that a miner was stoned to death by the Indians on Weber's creek, on Tuesday the 24th April, and that a teamster was killed on Wednesday night, the 25th ult., between the Culloma mill and Sacramento city. We could not learn the names of either of the unfortunate ...
