[From the New York Tribune.] [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 21 May 1850

[From the New York Tribune.] The Late Eruption of Vesuvius. — Mr. Bayard, son of ex-Senator Bayard of Delaware, was buried at Naples on February 29. He received his death at Vesuvius, on one of the nights of the recent great eruption there, from the falling of a stone from the crater, which nearly severed his arm. He bled profusely for 60 hours, when an amputation was ordered, which resulted in lock-jaw and death. His funeral w*s attended by all the Americans in Naples, and by one good Englishman, who came in his carriage and followed to the burial ; no Italians, and no military escort sent by the King, or permitted from the squadron. They were fearful of American soldiers. A correspondent of the Journal of Commerce, thus describes the scene at the mountain since the eruption : I am sorry I did not come here a few days sooner, to witness one of Vesuvius' grand eruptions, which has been the largest ever known. We have been to-day to see the lava, &c, and it is ii-ost wond...

improvements on J Street. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 21 May 1850

improvements on J Street. This street is making rapid strides in improvements of various kinds. Through its whole length may be seen the most gratifying evidences of the energy and enterprise of our merchants and business men- — Buildings constructed a few months since, which have lately become unpopular, from their antiquaten appearance, are suddenly metamorphosed by a more modern finish, and as they present their new and polished fronts, surmounted by handsome cornices, they seem to look down upon their neighbors wth the contemptuous stare of a suddenly made millionaire upon common rusticity. Of course the less polished buildings feel the disadvantage, and thus the spirit of rivalry is engendered, the effect of which is to make the latest improvements surpass all that precede them. As one walks up this street piles of lumber and building materials obstruct his path every few yards, and as he threads his way through the living mass, the mechanics' la* bors above give him a very ple...

For the Sacramento Transcript [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 21 May 1850

For the Sacramento Transcript Messrs. Editors : 1 deem it a duty to give the public, through your paper, a short account of the proceeding relative to the repairs on X street. Last fall, X street did a good business, but as soon as the rainy season commenced, this street was rendered impassable by the watei, and has remained so, with the exception of a few days, ever since. Others may look upon this with indifference, or even pleasure, as it may affect their interest, but those living on X street, can say with the frogs in the fable, it may be fun for you, but it is death for us. Owing to these circumstances, our business has been almost entirely slopped for the past four or five months ; and we believe, all whose ideas go beyond their own pockets, when they ieflect for a moment, will sustain us in all we have done. When money had been raised, a public meeting of the citizens of X street was called, and a committee chosen to go on and complete the enterprise. That committee voted th...

ARRIVAL OF THE STEAMER OREGON. The Gold Hunter arrived about eleven Jpclock last evening, bringing papers from the states to the 13th April, which came by the Oregon. The Oregon arrived at San Francisco, at six o'clock yesterday morning. We have only room to give a very brief sum mary. California had not been admitted at the latest dates. Professor Webster has been sentenced to death, by Chief Justice Shaw The emigration to this country seems to con „ stantly increase. The overland emigration this season, will be immensely greater than that of last ; and notwithstanding the constant increase in the number of steamers, and the continual departure of sailing vessels, the crowd cannot be provided with transportation to El Dorado, as fast as they wish to 6tart. The Whigs have carried St. Louis, over Benton and anti-Benton. Mr. Webster has received a communication signed by a large number of the leading of Boston, approving the sentiments his great speech on the Compromise Resolutions of...

I WANDERED BY THE BROOK-SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 21 May 1850

I WANDERED BY THE BROOK-SIDE. BT E. M. MILNES. I wandered by the brook-side, I wandered by llie null; I could not hear Ihe brook flow, The noisy wheel was still; There was no burr of grasshopper, No chirp of any bird. But the beating of my own heart Was all ihe sound I heard. I sat beneath the elm-tree. J watched the long, long shade, And as it grew still longer, I did not feel afraid ; For I listened for a footfall, I listened for a word, But the beating of my own heart Was all the sound I heard. He came not, —no, he came not, — The night came on alone ; The little stars sat, one by one, Each on his golden throne; The evening air passed by my cheek, The leaves above were stirred, But the beating of my own heart Was all the sound I heard. Fast silent tears were flowing, When something stood behind; A hand was on my shoulder, I knew its touch was kind ; It drew me nearer, —nearer, — We did not speak one word, For the b°fiiing of our own hearts Was all the sound we heard. More Steamer...
