Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 26 January 1850

Robberies on the Isthmus.-- We are informed by passengers who came by the last steamer, that the natives on the Isthmus have not maintained their character for honesty, which was their distinguishing trait when the immigration across the Isthmus first commenced. They have ceased to consider honesty a politic principle, and have recently committed several robberies. One gentleman was stripped of a considerable amount of money. He was with others in a canoe managed by natives, who made fast to a bank at a certain point of the river, went up to a hut, returned soon after, accompanied by a number of others, and robbed the Americans of all their valuable property. We also learn that a box of gold dust, shipped by the October steamer, by a mercantile house here, was opened, and five hundred ounces abstracted. It is supposed to have been stolen upon the Isthmus; but we are inclined to think that no native performed the job. We think it would be well for persons crossing the Isthmus at this...

DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

DEATH. Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither at the north wind's breath, And stars to fade ; but all— Thou hast all seasons for thine own, oh Death ! We know when moons shall wane, When summer birds from far shall cross the sea, When autumn's hue shall tinge the golden grain ; But who shall teach us when to look for thee ?

NEWS BY THE PANAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

NEWS BY THE PANAMA. The steamship Panama, Capt. Bailey, arrived at San Francisco early on Monday morning, the 21st ult. from Panama, whence she sailed on the 1st ult. She brought about 300 passengers, among them twelve ladies. A number of immigrants by the way of the Gila and Colorada rivers were taken on board at San Diego, many of them in a state of great suffering from exposure to the elements, and scanty food and raiment. New York papers of the 13th, and New Orleans of the 15th December, have been received. There were still a large number of persons on the Isthmus, awaiting means of transportation to San Francisco. The first session of the thirty-first Congress convened on Monday, Dec. 3, conformable to the provisions of the Constitution, but, at the latest dates, had not completed its organization. The Senate organized on the first day of the session, Hon. Millard Fillmore, Vice President of the United States, presiding — forty-one Senators present. In the House there were 223 ...

From the N. O. California Picayune. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

From the N. O. California Picayune. The course of events in the States — moral, political and social — since the departure of the last summary of news for our California friends, has run pretty smoothly, offering little of an extraordinary character for comment. The meeting of Congress took place on the 3d inst. but up to the latest dates from Washington, owing to the nicely balanced strength of the two parties, the House of Representatives had not succeeded in organizing; consequently we regret that we are not able to forward by the steamer the President's message. By reference to the Congressional proceedings, our readers will perceive the relative attitude of whigs and dem ocrats in the House, and they will not fail to notice the influential position which the freesoilers occupy therein, who, although of very insignificant numerical strength, have it in their power to make the scale of either party preponderate. The world of commerce, trade and business, as it moves along in the ...

From the N. Y. Tribune of Dec. 13. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

From the N. Y. Tribune of Dec. 13. The all-absorbing theme throughout Massachusetts, and indeed everywhere else for a time, but particularly in Boston, where the occurrences took place, has been the horrible murder of Dr. George Parkman — the wellknown, wealthy and distinguished Physician of that city. The history of this transaction is briefly as follows: Dr. Parkman's absence from his family, commencing on the afternoon of Friday, Nov. 23, soon began to awaken a feeling of uneasiness among his friends, which was constantly heightened by the futility of all inquiry respecting his whereabout. Subsequent to the day of his disappearance, all traces of him were lost. The whole Police force of the city was then put in requisition, without effect; and on the following Monday a reward of $3000 was offered for information which should lead to his discovery. On Thanksgiving Day, 29th, another notice was issned expressing fears that the Dr. had been murdered. and offering a reward of $1000 f...

CONDITION OF THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

CONDITION OF THE CITY. A week of sunshine has changed the condition of our city very materially. The principal streets in the vicinity of the Levee are now nearly dry, and business has commenced in most parts of the town. Foundations for a number of buildings on Front street are already laid. They are to have a frontage of 124 feet, by 60 deep, and to be two and two and a half stories high. Large buildings are going up on L street, and several more will soon be commenced on K.. No one now imagines that there is snow enough on the mountains to cause another rise in the river, unless we have a long south-east rain storm, which is scarcely probable, as we have had more than the full complement of rain due in the winter season. Active measures are being taken (as will be seen by a report of the proceedings in another column) for throwing up a Levee, and the work will undoubtedly be commenced as soon as it is practicable. The river is falling very rapidly, and will be in a condition to c...

FROM THE PLACER. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

FROM THE PLACER. Our intelligence from the mines is of a very flattering and important character. The flood seems to have stirred up the gold, even more than the thousands of operators now at the Placer. Mr. J. S. Bowles, who recently returned from Trinity River in consequence of there being too much snow, and the great scarcity of provisions, states that while his party worked (8 in number) they averaged $50 per day. One of the number went ' prospecting ' a few days, and dug two and a half pounds per day for seven days, below the 'Big Canion*' The gold is of about the same size and quality as that of the Dry Diggings on the Yuba. That above the ' Canion ' resembles the North Fork gold. Mr. Bowles intends to. return as soon as the snow melts sufficiently to permit operating. Gold had also been found in ' Cleir Creek,' which rises in the Coast Range and empties into the Sacramento. It was found on this creek about a mile from the Sacramento, as far up as it had been explored. It will...

DAILY ALTA CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

DAILY ALTA CALIFORNIA. We were not a little surprised as well as delighted to find a Daily Alta California in the last package from San Francisco. The indefatigable proprietors of this journal, finding that their TriWeekly did not answer the necessities of their rapidly increasing advertising patronage, at once resolved to merge it into a Daily ; and thus have eclipsed their competitors, and at the same time have established the first daily paper in California. The Alta Daily is conducted with the same spirit and energy as heretofore, and we sincerely congratulate the young gentlemen upon this new triumph in newspaper enterprise. Absconded.—We learn from the Alta California that Russell and Myers, late proprietors of the Ward House, San Francisco, absconded last week, leaving a large amount of debts unpaid. Myers also appropriated to his own use upward of a thousand dollars of the fund for the relief of the sick and poor of the town, it having been entrusted to him as Treasurer of t...

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

PUBLIC MEETING. Late on the afternoon of Monday a notice was issued calling a meeting of the citizens of Sacramento City at 9 o'clock the following morning, at the office of Messrs. Priest, Lee & Co. for the purpose of taking measures to have the city properly protected against future risings of the Sacramento. Notwithstanding the brief notice given, a large and respectable assemblage met at the appointed hour, and the meeting was organised by the appointment of Barton Lee, Esq. Chairman, and James L. L. F. Warren, Secretary. The chairman explained fully the objects of the meeting, and requested those present to give their views relative to the course best to be pursued in the present condition of the city. The meeting was then addressed by Messrs. R. Gelston, Hastings, Lee and others. On motion of Capt. R. Gelston, it was voted that the Chair appoint a committee to examine the necessary work to be done, and to appoint an Engineer to make surveys and estimates, and repor...

THE GOLD IN OUR STREETS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

THE GOLD IN OUR STREETS. There are diverse opinions as regards the manner in which the gold dust found its way into our streets. We believe the major part of our citizens think it has been spilled, or swept from stores and offices throughout the city. We do not incline to this opinion, for the reason that the article has been found in the vicinity of the town where no stores have been built and where people very seldom pass. In looking over Ure's elaborate and unrivaled Dictionary we find the following passages, which may not be wholly without interest at this moment : " Gold is, however much more common in the alluvial grounds than among the primitive and pyrogenous rocks just described. It is found disseminated under the form of spangles, in the silicious argillaceous, and ferruginous sands of certain plains and rivers, especially in their re-entering angles, at the season of low water, and after storms and temporary floods. " It has been supposed that the gold found in the beds o...

LAND TITLES vs. SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850

LAND TITLES vs. SQUATTERS. We insert the following communication without comment, and will publish a reply with pleasure, provided any of our correspondents think it needs one. Sacramento City. Jan. 2*, 1850. To the Editor of the Placer Times: " Fiat justitia, neat Cœlum." Let justice be done, though the Heavens fall. Sir— Feeling, a deep interest in the prosperity of our city, I hope I shall not be deemed impertinent in submitting a few remarks in reference to a subject which has more to do with its present and prospective condition than any other. I need hardly say that I allude to the exciting question of title to lots. It so happens that my residence, for several years, was upon the spot where the city of Dubuque, lowa, now stands. The rapidity with which that place increased was so great, that a considerable town had sprung up there before the U.S. Surveyors had run a single section line in that part of the country. The whole of the ground upon which the town stood was covered ...
