Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 19 May 1849

The extracts from late papers to be found on our first page, show how intense the excitement raging in the east respecting the gold discoveries in California; of course our limits will not permit of copious quotations from the different newspapers in our possession, but a tolerably correct idea may be derived from what has already appeared. It will be seen that women as well as men are seized with the infection, and that while thousands of persons are preparing to emigrate and thousands are on their way, the agitation continues quite as great as ever. Men are going mad on account of the gold, and others, becoming desperate, commit crime to enable them to raise the means of getting to California. The papers tell huge stories of wealth revealed, and speculate upon the probable results of the fever just as ever. Some gloomily fancy the forebodings of distress and others exult in the richness of the new acquisition, as their political character determines them. We confess never to have ...

The I'larrr. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 19 May 1849

The Placer. The prevailing inquiry among persons about to emigrate from the states to this country appears to be, how shall I get there, and upon arrival here there seems to be equal hesitation displayed as to a choice of locality. None who now visit California are at ease until the gold mines have been seen, whether they come with intentions of gold washing or not. All are advised, then, to visit the placer, at what point it matters not; if it be determined to make the fortune by means there employed, the stranger may make his debut as gold digger at one washing quite as well as at another, It is altogether probable, whether successful or not, he will range the placer from one end to the other before the season closes, or he will fail to act well the part of digger. The migratory propensities of the Anglo-Saxon race are nowhere so strikingly manifest as in California. Having once doubled Cape Horn or crossed the land, there is no rest for one, even though gold rolled beneath his fe...

PRESIDENT IN AUG UIIA L ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 26 May 1849

PRESIDENT'S INAUGURAL ADDRESS. Fellow Citizens : — Elected by the American people to the highest office known to our laws, I appear here to take the oath prescribed by the constitution, and in compliance with honored custom, to address those now assembled. The confidence and respect shown by my countrymen in calling me to the Chief Magistracy of the Republic of the United States, holding the highest rank among nations of the earth, have inspired me with feelings of the most profound gratitude; but when I reflect that the office which their partiality has bestowed imposes a discharge of the most arduous duties, and involves the weightiest obligations. I am conscious that the position which I am called to fill, though sufficient to satisfy the loftiest ambition, is surrounded by painful responsibilities. Happily however, in the performance of my new duties I shall not be without the co-operation of the legislative and judicial branches of the Government, which present permanent exampl...

The Placer. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 26 May 1849

The Placer. The arrival at our landing of a fleet of barks, brigs, schooners, and smaller sail during the week has filled the streets with strangers, given to trade a new impulse, and revived the general business aspect of the place. The new comers are almost to a man bound for the Placer, and encamped along through the cool woodland skirting the water, they may be encountered whithersoever one wanders. It bespeaks the intensity of the excitement created abroad by the gold discoveries in this country to witness the magnificently-mistaken scale upon which the mass have prepared for operating in the mines. All the absurd and outlandish inventions, the ill-applied contrivances, new-fangled works, and novel implements to facilitate the finding and gathering of gold; all the unsaleable, refuse, and musty trash from quiet corners of store shelves; antiquated wares, trappings, trinkets — in short, every variety of useless article, it would appear, has been shipped to "try its fortune in Ca...

F>>r the Placer Times. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 26 May 1849

For the Placer Times. Sacramento. May 25th, 1849. Roving through the mountains most of my time in quest of gain, I find myself quite in arrears of local news below, which, on perusal, I see but little set forth in either paper published in the country. I would inquire, in the first place, whether or not the attempt at forming a provisional government for the territory— which some envious, disappointed, would-be great men have been trying to give a death blow to — has been entirely abandoned or not ? Also what the district legislatures are doing — whether dying a premature and peaceful death, or being killed off by the sword ? Tho' it matters but little what be the fate of these, as I have no hopes of their effecting any good results. I would also ask from whence are derived the powers and instructions of Generals Smith and Riley to style themselves administrators and directors of civil affairs in this land, and to say to the inhabitants thereof that we have no right whatever to open...
