A Revolution—ltn Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 14 June 1849

A Revolution — lts Progress. ALTA CALIFORNIA. — SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY JUNE 14, 1849. This town was thrown into a state of interim excite ment on Saturday morning last, by the publication of the " Proclamation to the People of the District of San Francisco," which we this day give in our columns. The publication at the same time of a " Proclamation to the People of California," which we also insert to day.did not detract from the interest or excitement of the day. In another article we give our opinions generally in regard to the whole matters embraced in both proclamations; in this, we propose to devote a few lines to the " Proclamation to the People of the District of San Francisco." The commanding General says that proof has been laid before him that the "Legislative Assembly of the District of San Francisco has usurped powers which are vested only in the Congress of the United Slates." It certainly does not appear palpable to us in what particular they have done this. They have...

Tlie Tleeling. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 14 June 1849

The Meeting. The meeting in favor of a Provisional State Government for California which was held in Portsmouth Square on Tuesday last, the proceedings of which will be found in another column, was an enthusiastic and united demonstration. The crowded state of our columns will not permit us to notice it at length, but we cannot refrain from expressing the hope that other districts will follow our example, and that the campaign thus propitiously begun, will not be suffered to flag until our representatives and senators have taken their seats in the United States Congress. Our advertisers must excuse us this week that many of their favors do not appear. We have deemed it of the highest importance that the proclamations, the address, and the proceedings of the mass meeting should go to the public with the greatest possible despatch, and we trust they will concur with us in that opinion. The first number of our enlarged paper will appear early in July and thereafter we shall be enabled ...

G«l Riley's PnclumUm. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 14 June 1849

Gen. Riley's Proclamation. Our readers will find in this day's paper a " Proclamation to the People of California" by Gen. Riley, the military commander of this (10th) Department of the U. S. Army. As its positions and other circumstances connected with it are somewhat novel, and as the public mind is greatly excited in relation thereto, we trust we will be excused for noticing it at length and for endeavoring to disprove some of its conclusions. Gen. Riley says that " in accordance with initructions from the Secretary of War he has assumed the administration of civil affairs in California, not as a military governor, but as the executive of the existing civil government." Now, we do not mean to assert positively that Gen. Riley has no such instructions, but we do mean to say that in no instructions that we have seen published has the Secretary of War given any such orders to Gen. Riley. If other orders than those published are in existence, it is but fair that the people of this Te...

The Lc|MbUv« Addle**. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 14 June 1849

The Legislative Address. The Address of the Legislative Assembly of the District of San Francisco which we publish to-day is an able and well written document, and presents to the community the facts which call for the establishment of a State Government in a masterly and convincing manner. Although its recommendations do not coincide with the positions and recommendations of Gen. Riley'a Proclamation, it is still hoped that some amicable arrangement can be made by which a harmonious and able convention may be brought together. Every man in the country desires that a convention should be held and that a State organization should be made, and it will be a source of bitter regret, if foolish prejudices or preferences in relation to minor matters are permitted to mar or defeat so holy an object. Of course, it is desirable and necessary that the convention should consist of representatives from every part of the territory, and that it should be held at as early a day as possible, and if...

Arrival of the Groges. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 14 June 1849

Arrival of the Oregon. The ocean steamer Oregon, captain R. H. Pearson, arrived in this port from Panama at 7 o'clock yesterday morning, having made the passage in twenty and a half days, stopping at all the intermediate ports. She brings no later intelligence from the United the May mail not having arrived when she sailed. The arrivals of vessels and emigrants at Chagres were not so frequent as for the last few months, and though the isthmus is still quite crowded the influx of emigration is much lessened, and appears to have settled into a steady current. The Oregon brings up three hundred passengers. The California arrived at Panama the evening before the sailing of the Oregon. She was short of fuel on the passage down and was obliged to burn her spare, bulk heads, berths, boats, etc., and finally to wait at an island near Panama for a supply of coal. The California was to leave Panama for this port on the arrival of the mail from the United States. Stockton. — ln another column ...
