TO THE PUBLIC. It is nearly one year since the subscribers ventured upon the publication of the Weekly Alta California in this city. They have endeavored to make that sheet answer the demands of the community which has supported it, yet owing to unavoidable causes and deficiency of material, they have succeeded but in part. The rapid increase of the town and country in population, business and wealth, induced us, at the end of the first six months, to enlarge our weekly sheet to nearly twice its former dimensions; and so steady has been the increase of our patronage since that time, notwithstanding the growth and success of another creditable paper, that we now feel warranted in commencing the issue of a tri-weekly. We believe that the interests of this city and the common country have demanded this long since, but a lack of paper and other printing material has rendered it impossible for us to comply with that want until the present moment. The Tri-Weekly Alta California will be an...

[From the Alta California.] [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 December 1849
[From the Alta California.] Sacramento City. Nov. 3, 1849. Sir — About the middle of September I had occasion to visit the gold mines on the South Fork of the American River. While at Coloma, (or Sutter's Mill) I discovered on some remarkable hills near the river about three miles in the direction of Weaver's Creek, with frequent and nearly vertical escarpments, a green stone, consisting of an argillaceous carbonate of lime, alternating with strata of an iron-brown limestone, and which had the appearance of being worked into picturesque forms by wind and rain. About two miles from this, toward the west of Weaver's Creek I passed a hill where I saw a remarkable strata of a conglomerate formation, fragments of which were scattered over the surface. Among the river hills at Coloma I found strata of fossiliferous rock having an oolitic structure, which, in connection with the neighboring strata induces me to believe that here on the west side of the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains, I ...

[From the London Times.] STATE OF AFFAIRS IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 29 December 1849
[From the London Times.] STATE OF AFFAIRS IN CALIFORNIA. There are at this moment two great waves of population following the setting sun over this globe. The one is that mighty tide of human beings which, this year, beyond all former parallel, is flowing from Ireland, Great Britain, Germany, and some other parts of Europe in one compact and unbroken stream to the United States. The other, which may almost be described as urged on by the former, is that which, by many different ways, is forcing itself across the New World to California. Of these, the latter is by far the most broken and frustrated. To cross the Atlantic is now as easy and safe as four hundred years ago it was to cross the British Channel ; and when the dire stimulus of hunger has once urged the peasant to cut the tie of home, it costs him scarcely an effort of body or of mind to be passed on from shore to shore, from deck to quay, from station to station, till he finds himself grading a railway or excavating a canal...
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT SAN FRANCISCO. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 29 December 1849
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT SAN FRANCISCO. We learn from passengers by the Senator that a fire broke out on Monday morning at or near the Parker House, Portsmouth square, and before it was extinguished extended to the corner of Washington street, and down that street to Montgomery, destroying the auction house of Jewett &amp; Melhado, and damaging other buildings on that street. On the southerly side of the Parker House the fire burnt all the buildings to the corner of Clay street and down that street to the store of Cross, Hobson &amp; Co. The loss is said to be very large — something over a million of dollars.
THE POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 29 December 1849
THE POST OFFICE DEPARTMENT. We had about made up our mind to let the Post Office arrangements for California go to " grass" their own way, hoping that there would be private enterprise enough to eclipse that shabby concern altogether; but the constant disappointments and annoyances experienced by the business community, as well as every one expecting letters from home, impels us once more to advert to this most disgraceful, inefficient and shadow of an apology for the transmission of letters and newspapers, known by the " name and style" of the " Regular Mail." A gentleman assured us the other day that he had a number of letters deposited in the Post Office at San Francisco and directed to this City, and although he had sent by the Postmaster here, and by all the Express Agents, yet he has been unable to obtain them. Hundreds of others are in the same category, having letters of the utmost importance, directed to this place, but are still without them, in consequence of the negligen...
PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 29 December 1849
PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLATURE. We are indebted to the Alta California for a part of the doings of the Legislature. The list of State Officers elected we obtained through the politeness of Judge Hastings. We learn that patriotism was not so plenty immediately after it was ascertained that the prospect of getting paid in a hurry was a little dubious, and that gentlemen candidates for office cooled off very suddenly in their patriotic efforts to serve the embryo State of California. Both branches of the Assembly convened on Monday, the 19th instant, pursuant to adjournment, and immediately proceeded to the organization of their respective bodies. In the Senate, Dr. Chamberlain from the District of San Diego, was elected as President pro tem., J. F. Howe, Clerk, and —— Austin, Sergeant-at-Arms. In the Assembly, Dr. White of Sacramento, was elected upon the first ballot as Speaker of that body, and upon taking the chair briefly returned his thanks. Mr. Thorpe was then elected Clerk, Mr....
