Postal Arrangements. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 11 May 1850

Postal Arrangements. That the two largest cities of California should be impeded by the prpsent miserable mail arrangements between them is to say the least very singular. Why, the veriest village in the Slates would be better served than are San Francisco and Sacramento. We are absolutely ashamed to say, that these emporiums of California, the great commercial marts of the state, to which all things cluster; bound together by the links of trade; mutually and absolutely dependent upon each other ; growing with unprecedented rapidity, and only a hundred and twenty miles apart, are supplied merely with a weekly mail. There is something so preposterous about it that it is almost ludicrous ; and two years hence it will scarcely be believed. We have now, by means of steamers, daily communication with San Francisco, and were it not for our efficient Expresses we scarcely know how our merchants could get along. To mail a letter for the bay is almost a farce. It takes a week for the letter ...

Review of Affairs in the Stales. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 11 May 1850

Review of Affairs in the Stales. From our own Correspondent. New Orleans, March 30th. 1 take advantage of the departure of the Falcon, this morning, to give you sin inkling of news and gossip. And first from the old land, whence our ancestors embarked for the then home of the savage, and lair of the wild beast, as your readers, a couple of centuries alter, sought the extreme western limits of this New Word — first, let us look at that Old World As but yesterday, in the history of our race, the oppressed of western and southern Europe, engaged in a struggle such as that we adventured seventy years since. The downtrodden masses were surging against the fortresses of privilege — against the strongholds of despotism. The dam of ages was burst . the waters tided furiously, billowed bravely, and for a time, our hopes told us our prayers were heard ; but Wrong was maintained by Ursine hordes, by monarchical, aristocratic and bourgeois interests, beckoned to the field by fat priests, and wa...

From the Bay. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 11 May 1850

From the Bay. We notice by the Pacific News of the Bth inst., that a standing committee on " f.re and water," has been appointed by the Common Council. Their duties are to originate and plan " such modifications of the present manner of building wooden tenements, as will, if possible, afford greater guarantees of safety in future." Mr. Gillespie has introduced a resolution into the Board of Alderman, to have a thorough investigation made of the acts of the last Common Council. Mr. F. D. Kohler, the State Assayer, commences his duties in a few days. The News, in a vigorous and excellently written article on the fire, its causes, &c, urges the necessity of the introduction of a plentiful quantity of water in the city. The article also deprecates the unrestrained storage of gunpowder in all parts of the city. .Foley's circus opened to the full satisfaction of the audience. A company of female dancers from Lima, are to make their appearance soon, under the auspices of the pr...

Latest turn San Francisco. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 11 May 1850

Latest turn San Francisco. The Gold Hunter performed her usual trip up the Sacramento yesterday in a deserving and Sen-ator-like manner, to the complete satisfaction of about sixty passengers and the owners of a considerable quantity of freight, making her appearance a. our landing at nine o'clock last evening. Time, ten hours and fifteen minutss. She is already a successful aspirant for public favor. Success to her, for her officers are as gentlemanly and capable as the boat is a valuable accession to travelling facilities in California. The terrible fire which last week desolated the finest portion of San Francisco, has scarcely created a temporary embarrassment in the business of the place, while as aparylitic upon the indomitable euterprise of this San Francisco, its influence is hardly felt. Building is the ordei of the day and night. Upwards of twenty-five houses, of goodly dimensions, have upreared their defiance bidding fronts along Washington, from Montgomery to Kearney str...

RESIGNATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 11 May 1850

RESIGNATION. BY HEKET W. LONGFELLOW. There is no flock, however watched and tended, But one dead lamb is there ! There is no fireside, howsoe'er defended, But has one vacant chair! Tbe air is full of farewells to the dying, And mournings for the drail : The heart of Rachel, for her children crying, Will not be comforted ! Let us be patient ! these severe afflictions^ Not from the ground arise, But often times celestial benedictions Assume this dark disguise. We 6ee but dimly through the mists and vapors Amid these earthly damps ; What seem to us but dim funereal tapers May be Heaven's distant lamps. There is no Death ! what peems so is transition; This life of mortal breath Is but a suburb of the life elys'an, Whose portals we call Death. She is not dead— the child of our affection— But gone unto that school Where she no longer needs onr poor protection, And Christ himself doth rule. In that gr°at Cloisier"s stillness and seclusion, By guardian angels led. Safe from temptation, safe...
