PttOfXtvMTlO* [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 14 June 1849

PROCLAMATlON To the People of California. Congress having failed in its recent session to provide a new government for this country to replace that which existed on the annexation of California to the United States, the undersigned would caII attention to the means which he deems best calculated to avoid the embarrassments of our present position. The undersigned, in accordance with instructions from the Secretary of War, has assumed the administration of civil affairs in California, not as a military Governor, but as the executive of the existing civil government. In the absence of a properly appointed civil Governor, the commanding officer of the Department, is, by the laws of California, ex officio civil Governor of the country, and the instructions from Washington were based on the provisions of these laws. This subject has been misrepresented or at least misconceived, and currency given to the impression that the government of the country is still military. Such is not the fact...

PROCLAMATION [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 14 June 1849

PROCLAMATION To the People of the District of San Francisco. Whereas, proof has been laid before me, that a body of men, styling themselves "the Legislative Assembly of the District of San Francisco" has usurped powers which are vested only in the Congress of the United States,by making laws, creating and filling offices, imposing and collecting taxes, without the authority of law and in violation of the Constitution of the United States and of the late Treaty with Mexico. Now, therefore, all persons are warned not to countenance said illegal and unauthorized body, either by paying taxes, or by supporting or abetting their officers. And, whereas, due proof has been received that a person assuming the title of Sheriff, under the authorily of one claiming to be a Justice of the Peace in the town of San Francisco, did on the 31st of May last, with an armed party, violently enter the office of the 1st Alcalde of the District of San Francisco, and there forcibly take and carry away the P...

REAL ESTATE. Stockton. The undersigned avails himself of this method of offering to the public an opportunity to secure advantageous locations in the town of Stocton. The survey has been made by Capt. Hammond, U. S. A., and Wm. Norris, Esq.; the maps are completed and may be seen at the office of S. S, Howison, in the building of the subscriber at Stockton. Those persons who have visited Stockton either on business, or in passing to and from the mines, need no description of its location, and it is deemed quite sufficient to state, for the information of others, that the town is situated at the head of navigation on the San Joaquin, embracing within its limits four navigable channels, communicating directly with the river, and each affording ample depth of water for vessels of any draught usually engaged in the inland trade. The depth of the river and channels, as well as their capacity for navigation, are abundantly attested in the fact, that at this present time thirteen seagoing ...

who have either passed up the rivers Sacramento or San Joaquin to require any comment from the proprietors; but to all persons who have not had the opportunity to examine the site, we say that there is not in all California a point combining so many advantages for business purposes, with the advantages of a fine healthy climate, dry soil, free from inundation at every point, throughout the year, a superior harbor for vessels of the largest class, and an abundant supply of pure water at all seasons. To these advantages, we will add that permanent arrangements have been made for two steamers, to commence running in all the month of August daily from San Francisco to the new city ; and also two steamers of very light draught of water with tow boats prepared to navigate the Sacramento and San Joaquin, and their tributaries, from New York, below which they will not come. For lots or any information connected with the city of New York of the Pacific, apply at the office of the proprietors...

To the Public. The undersigned, composing a committee, appointed at a mass meeting of the people of the District of San Francisco, held on the 12th day of June, 1849, " to correspond with the other Districts, and to fix an early day for the election of delegates and the meeting of the convention, and also to determine the number of delegates which should be elected from this district" have given the subject that attention which their limited time and means would permit. The time being a matter, not of principle, but of mere expediency, and the committee being duly impressed with the urgent necessity of success in the main object desired by all parties, have not deemed it their duty or right, under the circumstances, to do any act that might endanger the ultimate success of the great project of holding the convention. The committee, not recognizing the least power, as matter of right, in Brev. Brig. Gen. Riley, to "appoint" a time and place for the election of delegates and the assem...

Latest from the Mines. Mockelumne Diggings, May 29th, 1849. Messrs. Editors — As the doings at this place have not recently been chronicled in your Journal, allow me to exhibit the "Elephant" as he appears on this side of the mountains. The ride from Stockton to this place is through a beautifully diversified country. The prarie land a few miles trom the Embarcadero is covered with the greatest variety of wild flowers of every immaginable hue. The road in some places winds through a fine growth of oak and pine trees, forming groves so regular and magnificent, that as we sat upon our horses we imagined ourselves in an old English park. On one side of the fine level road is a branch of the Calaveras, which waters the bottom land for miles around, and on the other, we saw immense herds of elk, antelope and deer scampering before us; such a sight in the States would have done our hearts good, but here the sportsman lays aside his fowling piece for the pick and shovel. Here man's natural...
