Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 1 December 1849
Days without Nights, and Nights without Days.—Dr. Baird, in his lectures at Hartford, gave some interesting facts. There is nothing that strikes the stranger more forcibly, if he visits Sweden at the season of the year when the days are longest, than the absence of the night. Dr. Baird had no conception of it before his arrival. He arrived at Stockholm from Gottenburg, 400 miles distant, in the morning, and in the afternoon went to see some friends— had not taken note of the time — and returned at midnight; it was as light as it is here half an hour before sundown. You could see distinctly ! But all was quiet in the streets; it seemed as if the inhabitants had gone away or were dead ; no signs of life — stores closed. The sun in June goes down in Stockholm a little before 10 o'clock. There is a great illumination all night, as the sun passes round the earth toward the North Pole, and the refraction of its rays is such that you can see to read at midnight. Dr. Baird read a letter in ...

Town of Kearny. The proprietors of Johnson's Rancho, on Bear river, in view of numerous applications, have laid off a small portion of it into lots, which are now offered to the public. The geographical position of this point for an inland town, is unsurpassed. It is situated at the only crossing on Bear river, surrounded by arable and pasture land, and is central and nearer than any other point to the mines on the North Fork of the American, Bear, Yuba. Feather rivers and Deer creek. The roads leading to these various mines, as well as the principal emigrant routes across the Plains, intersect at Kearney. Communication may be had with the mines at all seasons of the year. The officers appointed to select a military post for the erection of fortifications, have, after a careful survey of the whole country, located at this point. Two sawmills are now in progress of erection, which will soon furnish a plentiful supply of the finest of pine lumber. To those wishing to select a point fo...

F»r the Placer Times. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 8 December 1849
For the Placer Times. BY L. P. C. To " J. P. B-----." Though time hath not wreathed my temples with snow, Though age hath not breathed its spell on my brow, Yet Care's withered fingers press on me with pain, My fleeting pulse lingers, and lingers in vain. But dark ills have clouded my morning with tears, Adversity shrouded my ripening years ; Life's path, wild and dreary, draws nigh to its close ; Heart-broken and weary, I sigh for repose. Yet the world will caress thee when I cease to be, And suns rise to bless thee, that rise not for me ; So hearts shall adore thee and bend at thy shrine ; But none will adore thee as truly as mine. Sacramento City, Nov. 1849.
From the London Imperial Magazine. The Pleasure of Reading* [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 8 December 1849
From the London Imperial Magazine. The Pleasure of Reading. Some follow pleasure in the chase, Others in building towers; These in the smile of beauty's face, And those in tinted flowers; But give to me a pleasant book, That's fit for mental feeding, Lost earthly joys I'll calmly brook, For undisturbed reading. I envy not the man of wealth, The titled, or the rover; Who waste the vital lamp of health, And think they live in clover; Let me in some sequestered grove, From vanity receding, With one heart-touching volume rove, I'll solace find in reading. The classic page of those alive, Or wits of ancient story, With purest honey fill my hive, And raise my heart to glory. I cull the flowers of Rome and Greece, And every age succeeding ; (Prized more than Jason's golden fleece,) The sweet reward of reading. Like bees I range the gay parterre, Its nectared sweetness borrow; And find a balm for all my care, A recipe for sorrow. The worthies of the olden time, Heroes and martyrs bleeding, ...
From the AJta California. THE GOLDEN EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 8 December 1849
From the Alta California. THE GOLDEN EMIGRATION. In an article published in the Alta California on the 2d July last we stated the probable population of the country at that time at 30 000 souls. As the recent election has failed to bring out more than one quarter of the legal voters in the country, and as the hopes which that contest held out of approximating to the number of inhabitants have failed, we have thought it proper and necessary to give the following statistics. They are made up in some instances from actual records, in others from the best estimates we have been able to procure. The population of California, on the first day of January, 1849, may be set down as follows : Californians, sa* - - 13,000 Americans " - - - 6,000 Foreigners " - - - 5,000 Total - - - - 24,000 From that time down to the 11th day of April. 1*49, there were a great many arrivals by sea and a few by land. If we set down the arrivals by sea in round numbers at 5,000 (of which one half were Americans....
REMOVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 8 December 1849
REMOVAL. The office of the Placer Times has been removed to Second-street, between K and L streets. Persons desirous of having the Times left at their stores or dwellings, will be served by leaving their names at the office. Terms, 25 cents per copy, or $1 per month. Advertisements received until 12 M. on Friday of each week. Public Meetings. — Since our last we have had a number of " social gatherings," to discuss the subject of land-titles and the matter of squatting generally. Many good things were said pro and con, and " rich licks " put in by various gentlemen. At one of these meetings Mr. Sutter's grant from Mexico was read, and as it is a legitimate and genuine claim, Congress will unquestionab*y recognize it ; and we are fearful that those who trespass upon that grant will very soon find themselves involved in serious difficulties. Last evening a meeting was held at which by-laws of an Association were passed, the members of which were to have an acre apie*e of any unoccupie...
ARRIVAL OF THE OREGON. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 8 December 1849
ARRIVAL OF THE OREGON. The steamship Oregon arrived at San Fran cisco on Saturday last, bringing a large mail and 414 passengers. It is thought that her mail will be assorted and letters for this point received by Tuesday next—ten days after her arrival! The news is not very important ; passengers for California were still leaving the States in great numbers, and lumber has been shipped to an enormous extent. We give below all the items of interest : There was a very serious riot in Philadelphia in October ; many houses were burned, and several persons killed and wounded. Arrival of Gold Dust from the Great Salt Lake California.—We received a parcel of gold dust yesterday from the city of the Great Salt Lake State of Deseret. It is the first lot we have seen from that part of California. It came in a letter to us, to pay for a year's subscription to the Weekly Herald ; and is in small particles like fish scales. It is the pure article—23 1-2 carats fine.—N. Y. Herald. Sentence of th...

How to Break a Horse.—This can be done very easily by riding at a steeple-chase, where, if the leaps are at all difficult, your horse is sure to be broken, and into so many pieces, that it will be quite a puzzle to put it together again. Vide the Liverpool steeple-chase, where three horses were killed — Punch. Lieut. Heald, the husband of Lola Montes has resigned his commission in the 2d Life Guards.
