Married, In Sacramento City, on Monday evening, Dec. 10, by the Rev. Mr. Burnham, E. J. C. Kewen and Miss FANNIE WHITE, daughter of Dr. T. J. White, all of this city. [This being the first " elaborate demonstration" of the kind in our city, we think it incumbent upon us, as a " faithful chronicler of the Times," to allude to it. We were most happily disappointed in many respects on this interesting occasion. Instead of the rude costumes usually worn in this " far-off community," and the almost entire absence of ladies which we anticipated, the gentlemen appeared in dress coats, white vests and kids, and some twenty fine looking women were " in the field," dressed with all the taste and richness which characterizes the fashionable soiree of the Atlantic side. A band of music, with a good toned piano, enlivened the scene, and the quadrille and waltz were indulged in until a late hour. The refreshments were profuse, and all things passed off charmingly. Apropos : It will be seen by som...

Written for the Placer Times. TO — . BY STEPHEN C. MASSETT. Oh! lady, take these buds and flowers And twine them in thy nut-brown hair, And I will weave for thee a wreath Richer than any queen could wear. For thou shouldst have a coronet Not glittering with costly gem; The primrose and the violet Shall be thy queenly diadem ! The jessamine bank shall be thy throne, The hawthorn blossomings for thee Shall breathe their fragrance, while the song Of nightingale and humming bee Shall be thy music, and the shade Of leafy bower aud myrtle green Shall yield for thee a sanctuary Where thou shalt dwell in peace serene. Then lady take these buds and flowers And twine them in thy nut-brown hair, And I will weave a fragrant wreath Richer than any queen could wear. For offerings of gold and gems, Lady, I would not bring to thee ; But weave a wreath whose blossomings May bloom in immortality ! Mortality among Actors. — In looking over the newspapers from the States for the last few months, we cou...
FOREIGN ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 December 1849
FOREIGN ITEMS. German Refugees.—Great numbers of German political refugees are now passing through France to the sea coast, in order to embark for the United States. The Poles in Paris. — A portion of them, comprising chiefly the elder emigrants and the men of family, despairing of asserting snccessfully in Europe for many years to come, Polish nationality, are desirous of emigrating to America, and occupying and cultivating in common, large tracts of new lands—preserving strictly Polish customs and language in their new abode, and transmitting them to their children—to become the germ, in some future years, when circumstances should be more propitious, of a resurrection of Polish nationality in Europe. These patriotic dreamers have been outvoted in Paris. They retired, and a committee in behalf of the rest, is now occupied in making arrangements for their passage to the United States, where they propose, each for himself, like other emigrants, to make their living as best they can,...
