Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 8 December 1849

Discovery in Mississippi.— In the Southwestern part of Franklin county. Miss. there is a platform or floor of hewn stone, neatly polished. some three feet under ground. It is about one hundred and eighty feet long. and eighty feet wide. It extends due north and south, and its surface is perfectly level. The masonry is said to be equal, if not superior to any work of modern times. The land above it was cultivated, but thirty years ago it was covered with oak and pine trees measuring from two to three feet in diameter. It is evidently of very remote antiquity, as the Indians who reside in the neighborhood had no knowledge of its existence previous to its recent discovery. Nor is there any tradition among them to form any idea of the object of the work, or the people who were its builders. There is also a canal and well connected with it, but they never have been explored. A subterranean passage may be underneath Further explorations may throw some light upon its origin. New Orleans, S...

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 for...

Written for the Placer Times. TO A LADY IN SACRAMENTO. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 15 December 1849

Written for the Placer Times. TO A LADY IN SACRAMENTO. BY STEPHEN C. MASSETT. I love the pale moon when she rides in her brightness, I love the bright stars as they glitteringly twinkle, When there reigns o'er the calm world a spirit of lightness, At eve when the shepherd bells prettily tinkle. I love the cool stream as it placidly floweth , I love the sweet flowers that deck Earth's fair breast ; I love the south wind as it whisperingly bioweth, And the song-birds whose melody lulleth to rest. But more than all these, I love the bright beaming Of Woman's dark eye, when lit up by emotion ; Oh, 'tis rapture to gaze on its magical gleaming, That turneth the haughtiest soul to devotion ! And I love the gay laugh that so heartily ringeth, That telleth so truly of gladness and glee ; Its echo a charm o'er my sad spirit bringeth— The music of dreams hath less melody ! Undimmed be thine eye by the tear-drop of sorrow, Unquenched be the joy of thy heart's early gladness ; Oh ! bright be the...

Milton on liis Loss of Siglii. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 15 December 1849

Milton on his Loss of Sight. The sublimity and beauty of the following stanzas from the Oxford edition of Milton's works, are in keeping with the spirit and character of England's greatest poet : I am old and blind ! Men point at me as smitten by God's frown ; Afflicted and deserted by my kind, Yet I am not cast down. I am weak, yet strong ; I murmur not that I no longer see — Poor, old, and helpless, I the more belong, Father Supreme ! to Thee. Oh ! merciful One ! When men are farthest, then Thou art most near, When friends pass by, my weaknesses to shun, Thy chariot I hear. Thy glorious face Is leaning towards me, and its holy light Shines upon my lonely dwelling place — And there is no more night. On my bended knees, I recognise Thy purpose clearly shown ; My vision Thou hast dimmed that I may see Thyself, Thyself alone. I have nought to fear; This darkness is the shadow of Thy wings : Beneath it I am almost sacred — here, Can come no evil thing. Oh ! I seem to stand Trembling, w...

A Letter from the DiggiMs. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 15 December 1849

A Letter from the Diggins. Valley of the Sacramento, April 20, '49. Eddyturs of the Sundy Times: When I wrote before spades was trumps — now it's dimunds. These preshus stuns is found in brilyant perfusion on the brow of the Sarah Nevady, and sereral as large as fenix eggs has been seen in a mountain of gold, diskivered last week, near Joking; and when the snow melts it it supposed that many of the first water will come down with the current. Seed dimunds is remarkabul plenty, but a law has been made agen gatherin' em, because it spoils the futur crop. None is aloud to be gathered under the size of a piece of chauk. Emrulds abounds, but nobudy is green enough to pick 'em up when they can get dimunds. Other jooils is a drug. Beyand the plains. on what they call a plato of the mountings, bushels of little peaces of silver has been dug up, which is very convenyent for small change. A stream runnin' into Feather River, and partiklarly rich in gold, has recently been diskivered by a Germ...

LAND TITLES vs. SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 15 December 1849

LAND TITLES vs. SQUATTERS. The citizens of Sacramento and vicinity have, for the last two or three weeks past, been somewhat excited by a movement on the part of a large portion of this community, who have taken upon themselves the responsibility of disputing the legality and genuineness of the title of Mr. John A. Sutter to the land in this neighborhood, which he originally obtained from the Mexican Government; and, having satisfied themselves on this point have arrived at the conclusion that they have equal right to settle upon and occupy the land as those who assume to possess prior claims. As this is a very delicate and intricate question to discuss, and one which our limited knowledge will not allow us to handle as understandingly as we could wish, we shall content ourself for the present by merely trying to give the facts and arguments on both sides as fully and clearly as our limited space will enable us to do. In the first place, then, Mr. John A. Sutter, some nine or ten ye...

OLD NAMES TO NEW PLACES. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 15 December 1849

OLD NAMES TO NEW PLACES. We take much pleasure in publishing the following communication, and hope that the suggestions of the writer may be duly heeded: Mr. Editor:—Let me call your attention and the attention of sensible men to an unfortunate custom which prevails in California as well as in nearly all the States of the Union. I refer to the absurd practice of giving old names to new places. Not only is it absurd, but will be of serious inconvenience in future as I shall show. Steam has brought the whole world almost to our very doors ; and is yet to do more. The whole world of leisure then will make it a point to make the tour of America once in a while. Now will it not be a little queer to a Frenchman, on leaving Paris, to travel through half a dozen villages of the same name in America? "Ah," says he, "you be little village ; you have de name de Paris, but you be noting to de big Paris dans la Belle France." Then comes a John Bull, stumbling on a cluster of houses dignified wit...

MR. CORNWALL'S STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 15 December 1849

MR. CORNWALL'S STATEMENT. To the Citizens of Sacramento City: Since my election to the State Legislature by the People of this District, exciting circumstances of such a nature have occurred in Sacramento City, and misstatements and false constructions of my actions and language have been published to such an extent as to render it both proper and expedient that I should, previous to my departure for the State Capital, define, to the People who have elected me, the position which I occupy : In the Fall of 1848, when Capt Wm. H. Warner of the U. S. Topographical Engineers, was conducting the original survey of this City for Capt. John A. Sutter, I became one of the first purchasers of City Lots here. At that time, the land where the City now stands was covered with timber and brush, and although the property was by many people considered worthless, I paid $500 for each lot ; and I have never, either before or since that time, claimed or obtained any property here or elsewhere in the ...
