The Coral Islands of the Pacific. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 April 1850

The Coral Islands of the Pacific. We find in the last number of the New York Literary World, a periodical which well sustains its reputation, an interesting notice of Dana's Geology of the Exploring Expedition some eight or ten years ago, under the command of Charles Wilkes, of the U. S. Navy. The volume consists of 750 pages quarto, besides an escort of maps, &c, and but a limited number of copies are to be printed by the Government. Of the work itself the reviewer speaks in favorable terms. He says "he has here collected a vast mass of facts relating to the remote regions visited by the expedition, and has arranged them with such felicity, that the work, though diffuse, has almost the interest of a purely picturesque narrative His deductions are clear and philosophical, his language unambitious, and in general his writing evidently comes from one thoroughly educated in and devoted to his subject, who is equally successful in observing phenomenon, and in searching for t...

CLIMATE IN CALIFORNIA.— Halloa! [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 April 1850

C LIMATE IN CALIFORNIA. — Halloa ! my friend, where are you from ? said a Bostonian to a tall, gaunt looking fellow, whose sun burnt countenance and tattered garments had that picturesqueness about them derived only from long continued exposure, which fancy sketchers so much delight to present on canvas. ' Jes from Catfornia, stranger !' 'Ah, indeed ! and you can tell us then, whether it's all true about that gold ?' Trew as you live ! and a darri'd sight truer, for no man out of Calaforny does live! Then why did you come back ? Back ! why to get my family.' Fact is,stranger, a man gets so powerful ridh that he becomes covetous of himself; and if aint very kearful, will cut his own throat to rob himself. The root of all evil you know— there's a little too much of it, and I left partly on that account. 'Oh, you did, eh !' 'Yes, and between you and me, that's the only way a man can die in this blessed land. 'Healthy climate, I suppose ?' 'Healthy ?' 'it aint anything else, as sure as ...

Destructive Fire in Sacramento.—Eight Houses destroyed.—Loss of Property esmated at §63,000. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 April 1850

Destructive Fire in Sacramento.— Eight Houses destroyed.— Loss of Property esmated at §63,000. Yesterday morning, at about quarter before one, our citizens were alarmed from their beds by the cry of fire. This cry is truly appalling in our closely built and wooden towns and on this occasion the crowd of men seemed to start out of the ground, so suddenly did they assemble. The fire commenced in the front part of the store of Messrs. Hoope & L'Amoreux, and spread rapidly to the north and to the south. The bouses consumed fronted on the levee, between J and K streets. The El Dorado was next north to Messrs. Hoope & L'Amoreux's store, and it soon caught and was enveloped in one sheet of flame. At the same time, the next slore to the south, in which was the Express office of Messrs. Brown & Knowlton, caught and was speedily consumed. — The wind was blowing from the north at the time, and Messrs. Fowler & Co.'s store next became a prey to th...

Trinidad. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 April 1850

Trinidad. The schooner California, after a short trip to Trinidad, returned to San Francisco on the evening of March 3lst. The schooner is owned by the passengers and crew, and but little effort was made to explore the country in the neighborhood of the Bay. Thfi Caliifornia found nine men who were in a starving condition, having been accidentally left ■ nine days previous by the brig Cameo, which was driven off shore by a storm. The men had eaten nothing during this time, save a jackass, which they procured from the Indians. They bring the intelligence that the river is about fifty yards wide where it enters into the Bay, and is deep enough to float a seventy.four after the bar at its mouth is ciossed. The Bay itself is difficult of access ,only from the want of experienced pilots, but we see by an advertisement in the Alta California, that a small company of experienced ship-masters having explored the coast, found Trinity river, sounded and made themselves thoroughly acquainted w...

RIOT WITH THE INDIANE [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 April 1850

RIOT WITH THE INDIANE We have been informed by a gentleman from Deer Creek, that one day last week, some twelve men, who had been soldiers in the Mexican war, attacked a party of Indians whom they accused of stealing animals, and killed four or five men and one squaw. The Indians, after running some time before their pursuers, turned round, seeing so few in chase, and the pursuer became the pursued, until they gained a strong hold in a rocky part of the mountain, where the Indians attacked them furiously, wounding, it is believed fatally, two of the whites, one in the shoulder, and the other in the arm. The siege lasted two days, during which the Indians lost seventeen men and one squaw, besides those before mentioned A man called Bill Ebben is the leader of the assailants. A party of two hundred was organizing at Deer Creek, and were expectted to start in pursuit last Thursday morning. Odd Fellows. — The members of the I t O. of O.

Latest from Stockton. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 April 1850

Latest from Stockton. The Stockton Times, of March 30th, is on our table. From a leading article in it we perceive that Tuolumne City is beginning to attract attention. Lots have arisen in value and numerous houses been erected. This ci y is situated on the north bank of the Tuolu Tine, about five miles from its mouth. The water is. said to be deep there, and the roads to the Stanislaus, Mercedes and Mariposa mines, good. The country lying between I the Stanislaus and Mercedes rivers, through the centre of which the Tuolumne flows, is described as being of unsurpassed beauty and fertility. The Times says "it is one conPrti'.uous scene of upland and dell, clothed at I the present time with the most luxuriant verdure. The plain is well timbered and abundantly supplied with water." Mr. D. Gibbes, a surveyor, has just completed a chart of the San Joaquin river. It was a laborious work, and it will be invalu- „. able to navigators. A correspondent of the Times, speaking of p.

Dissolution of the Union. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 April 1850

Dissolution of the Union. The more important newspapers of the States, both north and south, take the decided stand, as, of course, would be expected, in favor of the Union. And, although the waves of contention beat high, still our men of might stand firmly by the Ship of State. The following are Mr. Webster's remarks, in the Senate, in relation to receiving a petition asking for a dissolution of the Union : Mr. President, I am much obliged to the member from Michigan, for the clearness and force with which he has expressed opinions, in which, in the main, I entirely concur, especially in what he says of that existing idealism which I find spread over the country, that there can or may be such a thing as a peaceable breaking up of this Union. I am quite sorry that my friend from New Hampshire has presented any such petition as this, and I shall be quite surprised if there be any votes in the Senate for receiving it. It would be on our part an assumption of power ; it would look as ...
