GOV. BURNETT'S INAUGURAL ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 5 January 1850
GOV. BURNETT'S INAUGURAL ADDRESS. Gentlemen of the Senate and Assembly : I have been chosen by a majority of my fellow citizens of the State of California to be her first Executive. For this proof of their partiality and confidence, I shall ever retain a most grateful sense. To be chosen chief magistrate of California at this period of her history, when the eyes of the whole world are turned towards her, is a high and distinguished honor, and I shall do all in my power to merit this distinction, by an ardent, sincere and energetic discharge of the weighty and responsible duties incident to the position I occupy. Nature, in her kindness and benificence, has distinguished California by great and decided natural advantages; and these great natural resources will make her, either a very great, or a very sordid and petty state. She can take no middle course. She will either be distinguished among her sister states, as one of the leading stars of the Union, or she will sink into comparati...

THEY'RE ALL DIGGING! [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 19 January 1850
THEY'RE ALL DIGGING! BY S. S. STEELE. Mr. Smith and Mr. Spriggins, merchants of the city grand, All have left their native diggins to go digging in the sand. The soldier doffs his feather now for Feather River's shore, And majors now turn miners to drill out the yellow ore. And they 're all digging, dig dig digging. And they 're all digging for California gold. The farmer leaves his golden grain to dig for grains of gold, And his crops may get a threshing from the Dons and Indians bold. The planter leaves his carrots to dig golden carats rare. But his head may burn quite carrot-ty ere he the dust will share. For they 're all digging, &amp;c. The lawyer leaves his parchments now to parch amid the track, And leaves his suits behind him which he may want when he comes back. The surgeon leaves his bones and veins to strike the veins of gold, But he may operate in vain, and bleed himself quite cold, Where they 're all digging, &amp;c. The printer quits his types now for t...

FROM PANAMA. The first two numbers of a new paper established at Panama, called the Panama Echo, have been received at San Francisco. The following paragraphs are selected from its columns : Among the passengers on board the steamship Alabama, which left New Orleans Nov. 14, we notice the arrival at this place of Hon. Bailie Peyton, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Chile. Mr. P. is accompanied by an accomplished daughter, whose many amiable qualities will be a solace to him in a land of strangers. Having failed to reach here in time to procure a passage on the British steamer New Granada, which sailed on the 27th ult. he will remain in Panama until the departure of the next steamer, (the 27th inst.) when he will proceed to Valparaiso, and thence to Santiago.

THE DISTURBANCE AT THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 19 January 1850
THE DISTURBANCE AT THE MINES. We copy the following account of the disturbances in the San Joaquin Valley, from the correspondence of the Alta California, dated Stockton, Dec. 31, 1849. It appears that a number of Americans had, at the commencement of the rainy season, selected a place on the Calaveras River, where they erected log cabins, and made preparations to winter. This was a place in which "dry blowing" for gold was carried on, last summer by Chileans or other foreigners. Soon after the Americans settled, a number of Chileans arrived, and went to work in the neighborhood ; and shortly afterwards, a public meeting was held by the Americans, and a Judge and Military Captain were elected. Notice was then given to all who were not American citizens, to leave within fifteen days. A body of Chileans still remained at their old place, about eight miles from the " lowa Log Cabins," (the American Camp) and abused and drove off three or four Americans, who attempted to dig in the neig...
From the Placer Times (Extra) of Jan. 15. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 19 January 1850
From the Placer Times (Extra) of Jan. 15. Tremendous South-east Storm— Overflow of the City—Great Loss of Property. A week ago last night our city experienced one of the most terrific south-east storms (not northeast as a San Francisco cotemporary has it) known in this region, which had the effect of swelling the Sacramento by Wednesday afternoon so that the water commenced running over the slough on I street at various points between First and Third streets. Before night, the water was rushing under the Zinc Building of Messrs. Montgomery &amp; Warbass, and rivers of water were coursing down Second and Third streets. On Thursday morning, the entire city, within a mile of the embarcadero, was under water with the exception of some high points on the bank of the river and on Tenth street. Very few houses escaped having water on their first floors, while many have been swept from their underpinnings by the strong current. We have heard of no loss of life, or personal injuries ...
