ELECTION RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 November 1849
ELECTION RETURNS. Below will be found nearly the whole vote of California at the recent Election. Judge Burnett, it will be perceived, is certainly elected Governor, and John McDougal, Lieutenant Governor. George W. Wright and Edward Gilbert, we think, are elected to Congress. Those candidates that are probably elected to the Senate and Assembly from this district have a star after their names. There are a few more precincts yet to be heard from, which it is thought will not change the result very materially. Through the kindness of Judge Thomas we are enabled to give, so far as heard from, the official vote of this district. SACRAMENTO DISTRICT.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 November 1849
Extraordinary Case of Attempted Seduction in New-York.—There is in the Police Gazette a very long, a very graphic, and a somewhat romance-like acconnt of an attempt at seduction made in New York in July last, by a married man, Capt. McCerren, of the ship Columbus, which arrived at the port of New York, from Liverpool, on the 23d of June, with, among other passengers, two young and respectable Irish girls, Eliza Jane and Mary Dixon. These two lone and unprotected females took board a with a respectable woman in Madison-street, named Mrs. O'Niel. Here the captain and physician of the ship found them, and induced the younger girl to take a walk with them. In the course of the walk, the doctor - who seems to have played the part of a sort of pimp to his worthy captain — left them. The captain then induced the girl to call with him upon a female friend, and he took her to the house of Jane Morton, 83 Crosby-street, ' well known as a place of female prostitution.' They were shown into an ...

DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 1 December 1849
DEATH. We know when gentle spring will come, And when the winter cold, And when the withered leaves will lie Upon the frosty mould. We know when tender violets fade, And when the primrose dies, And when the glimmering stars will shine And set amid the skies. But who is he can tell the hour When the dread foe shall come, To sweep away the sons of earth, And shroud them in the tomb ? He waits not till the limbs are old, Or till the hair is gray ; Ah, no ! the young and beautiful He makes as oft his prey. He tears the infant from the breast, He slays the blooming bride, When she before the altar stands, Her lover by her side. Morning and eve, both day and night, He goeth forth to slay, And every hour some victim new He seizes for his prey. Go where you will, he still is there — On earth, or on the deep ; Whether the waves tempestuous rise, Or sink in gentle sleep. He comes among the festive throng, Where grace and beauty shine ; He steals into the banquet hall, ' Mid revel, mirth and w...

Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 1 December 1849
Personal. Now that the election is ended, and my mo tives will not be liable to misconception, nor my language be misunderstood, l deem it of high importance to myself and of interest to the public to make the following statement. During the canvass which has recently taken place, I have frequently heard and contradicted untrue statements of the reasons why I did not receive the nomination of the democratic party of the District of San Francisco for Congress. The first of these charges is, " That I did not want the nomination — that I would run whether I had the nomination or not." The facts are thus: Shortly after my return from Monterey, after I had been announced in the newspapers as a candidate, and after my tickets had been circulated. I was waited on by a gentleman who afterward became chairman of the democratic nominating committee. He wished to know if the Alta California newspaper, of which I am one of the editors, would espouse the democratic cause. I told him that though ...
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON LICENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 1 December 1849
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON LICENSES. The Committee appointed to regulate a system of finance and taxation for Sacramento City, beg leave to report that, in view of the short period which they, from the crying necessities of the Corporation, have been allowed to deliberate upon the important matters therein involved— from the press of business which has continually interrupted their deliberation, and from the universally acknowledged difficulty of the task imposed, they can scarcely flatter themselves that they have discharged this duty without eliciting from some source the fruitful signs of dissatisfaction. The question of taxation by government, state, or municipal corporation, has always been considered one of extreme perplexity, and concerning which, whatever permanent or tangible feature it may assume, there has always been and ever will be, to a limited extent, a decided opposition. Especially in a new country like this, where no adequate law exists for the correct government of t...
