From the New Ytrk Sunday Times. ADVICE TO GREEN MINERS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 19 January 1850
From the New York Sunday Times. ADVICE TO GREEN MINERS. Our epistolary agent at the mines has not exhibited his usual promptitude and punctuality touching his advice to green miners, promised in his communication of the 22d ult. The following merceau was handed to us only last evening, and from the crumpled condition of the paper, and the Virginia fence style of the manuscript, every word of which appears to be flying off at a tangent from the plane of the horison, as if " the man with the poker" was after it, we infer that the author has been indulging in what he classically terms a jew de spree. Some portions of the chirography are almost illegible, and exhale a strong alcoholic odor, from which we infer that the author, in the "excitement of composition," occasionally dipped his pen into the toddy glass instead of the inkstand. Eddyturs of the Sundy Times: As aforesaid in my last epistol, I send you the subsekwent advice to grene miners, which I hope will prevent menny from bein ...

JENKS AND CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 19 January 1850
JENKS AND CALIFORNIA. ' I 'll tell you what it is, my dear,' said our friend Jenks to his wife one evening after they had retired to bed, ' I am positively in favor of this California business.' ' There you go again,' she replied ; ' I never saw any one like you.' ' Well now don't get excited. We can talk over the matter dispassionately, and—' ' Now, Mr. Jenks, I can tell you once for all—' ' Oh pshaw,' exclaimed our friend; ' where is the use of one's working one's soul out here for a bare living, when by going to California one may clear a fortune in a year or two, and come back lo his friends and family to enjoy it? ' Now stop,' said the wife,' ' I won't permit you to talk in this way. You are a married man, and as such have no business to take it into your head to go to California or anywhere else without your wife.' ' Come, come, now, Mrs. Jenks, you know well enough — ' ' Yes, I do know well enough that any woman is a fool who will — ' ' Ah, my love !' ' Oh. go along ; don't t...

GENTLE WORDS—LOVING SMILES. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 26 January 1850
GENTLE WORDS— LOVING SMILES. The sun may warm the grass to life, The dew the dropping flower, And eyes grow bright and watch the light Of Autumn's evening hour ; But words that breathe of tenderness , And smiles we know are true, Are warmer than the summer time, And brighter than the dew. It is not much the world can give, With all its subtle art, And gold and gems are not the things To satisfy the heart ; But oh, if those who cluster round The altar and the hearth Have gentle words and loving smiles, How beautiful is earth !
CALIFORNIA MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 26 January 1850
CALIFORNIA MAILS. The Postmaster General has seen fit to write the following letter to Mr. Musson, the Postmaster at New Orleans, in consequence of the latter having extracted a complaining article from the New Orleans Picayune, and forwarded it to the Postmaster General. It throws some little light upon the subject : Post Office Department, } October 27, 1849. } Sir—I have received your letter of the 16th inst. enclosing an article from the Picayune on the subject of the California mails. It is apparent from your letter, and from the newspaper extract by you forwarded, that both you and the community of New Orleans suppose that the arrangement of the time of departure, and connection of the mails from the United States to Chagres, was under the direction and control of this Department. That is an error. The steamships carrying those mails, are in no respect subject to the order, direction or control of the Postmaster General, nor has he ever been consulted on the subject. The true ...
Pertonal Traits of Hon. John C. Calhoun* [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 26 January 1850
Personal Traits of Hon. John C. Calhoun. — Less is probably known to the public of the personale of the great exponent of South Carolina opinion, than of any other of our eminent statesmen. A number of facts in reference to his personal habits, etc. have recently been disclosed, which will prove of interest to our readers. The family of the Senator consists of Mrs. Calhoun and seven children. Of these, one son is a planter in Alabama, the next a captain in the army at New Orleans; the eldest daughter is in Europe, wife of our Charge at Belgium. Of the three sons at home, one is a physician, the others are young men of 20 and 18. Mr. Calhoun has upon his table everything of Southern production, but is himself a spare eater. The view from his house commands distant mountain ranges, 40 and 60 miles away. His study is 20 feet south of his mansion, has but one room and one door. His library is not large, but choice. and most of the books relate to the Union and her interests. The key of ...
J Relic of the World Before the Flood .'— [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 26 January 1850
A Relic of the World Before the Flood !— A correspondent informs us that being at Parkville, N. J. the other day, he saw a man who informed him that some time ago he was digging marl in that vicinity, when he came to the hull of a vessel 12 feet below the surface of the ground, the timbers of which were fastened together with tre-nails, (wooden pins) no spikes or metals of any kind about it. This ship must have been older than Noah's Ark ! and built by men who had no knowledge of the use of iron or copper ; therefore, as the use of metal was known at the time of Noah, we presume this vessel was anterior to the deluge. One thing is certain, it must have been constructed before that part of the continent was covered by the debris from the mountains. which elevated the surface above the level of the ocean, and now forms the habitable portion of West Jersey.— [Phil Ledger.

Rumors of War.—A great number of folks seem to think that we are to have war with England very shortly, the trouble having originated out of the Nicaragua question. England, it appears, made a demand for that portion of the Nicaragua coast embracing the mouth of the river San Juan, and which is included in the treaty with American citizens, and the point at which a ship canal is to be commenced. Without much ado, the United States Minister took possession of the ground claimed by our citizens, and we have news also that the United States flag had since been hauled down by the British squadron off the coast. We have a rumor likewise that the steamer California, which sailed from San Francisco on the 15th, has been detained by order of the Commodore at this station, and that the Panama, which arrived on Monday last, would also be detained. The whole business ...
