Col. .MasoiiniMl <Jol. Ik'uloii. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 10 May 1849

Col. Mason and Col. Benton. [Continued.] It will be borne in mind in reading the appendix that the " supplies " referred to in Col. Fremont's certificate No. 2 of the 26th April 1847, as having been already furnished for subsisting troops under his command, all of which had been previously discharged, are the identical same cattle for which the contract was made, and which the two receipts of Stearns, his agent, of a subsequent date show had never been furnished at all. This is the transaction, and these are the documents — the " lies against Col. Fremont " — which has brought upon me the ire of Mr. Benton, merely for being the proper channel through which the Government was made acquainted with them. Truly they must be a painful " thorn in the King's side," if we judge from his cries. I am satisfied, and such is the general opinion of every man I have heard speak on the subject, that a bill simply appropriating a sum of money for the payment of the California claims, would have pas...

ALTA CALIFCTRiM . [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 10 May 1849

ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, WE'SDAY, MAY 16, 1849. We announce to our readers this week, that we have made such business arrangements, as will enable us to enlarge our Journal in a few weeks, and otherwise improve its appearance, by new type and paper. Newspaper Enterprise in California. — We have received the first number of a weekly newspaper, entitled the '* Placer Times," published at Sacramento city, by Edward C. Kemble, &amp;amp; Co. Though a small sheet, it is filled with a choice selection of reading matter, and its proximity to the mining region must give it great importance, for the reliable and definite information it will contain respecting that interesting and valuable portion of the country. It is highly creditable to the enterprise of the citizens of Sacramento city, that they are the first inland city which has established and cherished a newspaper in California, and it is not too much to hope that the ability with which it will be conducted, by one of the pi...

! Lklml from Hie l'nlt«d States. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 10 May 1849

Latest from the Unted States. By the American brig Cayuga, Capt. Sevige, which arrived on the 13th inst. from Mazatlan, after a passage of 28 days, we have received a copy of the Daily N. O. Picayune of the 7th March last, and El Monitor Republicano printed in the city of Mexico, of March 31. Below we give such items of news as they contain. It will be seen that the President elect, Gen. Taylor, has assumed the reins of Government and appointed his Cabinet, though there would appear to be some doubt as to who constitutes that cabinet. It is impossible to speak positively, but our impression is that the list copied from the Monitor Republicano is the correct one. The proceedings of congress to the third of March would seem to indicate that a bill for the temporary government of California has been passed. What that government is to be, we cannot learn from the meagre accounts in our possession, and that a bill has been passed at all is matter of much uncertainty. [From the Charleston...

President'* Inanuiiral AtldrcM. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 10 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 suflicient 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 Govern- ment, which present permanent exa...

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 10 May 1849

OBITUARY. Died, in this town, on the night of the 10th inst., Albert B. Crafts, aged about thirty-five years, formerly of Cherry Valley, Otsego County, N. Y. The deceased had been subject for years to fits of appoplexy, and it is supposed that he fell down in one of these and perished in the street, as he was found on the morning of the 11th, quite dead, between his lodgings and the City hotel. The deceased came to this country as a private in Company H. of the 1st N. Y. Regiment. He was honorably discharged at the end of the war, since which time he has worked a short time in the mines, and was at the time ef his death employed as an Inspector in the Custom House of this Port. His remains were decently interred on the 12th inst, and were followed to the grave by a large number of his former companions in arms, who thus testified the sincerity of their esteem for one who was beloved and respected for his amiable disposition and goodness of heart.
