LEGISLATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 February 1850
LEGISLATIVE. The Post Office Business. — The following resolutions were offered in the Senate by Mr. Chamberlain : Whereas, Serious delays, losses and inconveniences to the people of the State of California have constantly occurred during the entire last summer, in consequence of the most reprehensible manner in which the mails to and from the States have been managed, which losses and delays affect not only the people of California, but of the Union: and whereas the causes which operate so seriously pertain either to the management of the Post Office department on both sides of the continent, or to the mail contractors engaged in the Pacific Mail Steam Line, or probably to both : Therefore, be it Resolved, That to submit longer to a grievance of such magnitude, while there is a source of reform to appeal to, which is competent to right the wrong, would not only be criminal in ourselves, as the representatives of the people of California, but unjust to the people of the other States...

ALL ABOUT 'HER.' [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 9 February 1850
ALL ABOUT 'HER.' Yes, she was lovely, she was fair, As mild as summer even ; An angel form, a spirit bright, A star that dropped from heaven. Well, she was. And oh ! those bright and lustrous orbs, That beamed with holy fire — Those auburn curls, that lovely brow, None, none could but admire ! Well, they could n't. And oh ! that light and graceful form, So like a beauteous fairy — (Perhaps we 'd best leave out the ' f,' And then it would be airy.) Well, it would. I knelt before her, and I swore I 'd have one burning kiss. She said—" Go wash your face before You can enjoy such bliss." Well, she did. I swore she was an angel, too, Who 'd fallen from the sky. She cried—" Oh for a pair of wings, Once more to soar on high !" I vow she did. " What, what !" I cried, " and would you thus A lover true desert ?" "Oh heavens!" she cried, "the clothes-line's broke ! There goes my brother's shirt !" Well she did— ka-*i-o !

The Land Title Question.—We had hoped to publish a communication this morning which we think throws the proper light upon this question. The lengthy quotations from competent authorities, which the author has brought to bear upon the subject, and the late day at which it was received, preclude the possibility of its appearance to-day. We shall publish it with pleasure in our next.
THE LEVEE. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 9 February 1850
THE LEVEE. The Committee of Eleven appointed last week to employ an Engineer to make surveys and estimates in regard to the Levee, called another meeting, which took place at 11 o'clock on Monday morning, at the office of Messrs. Priest, Lee &amp; Co., Barton Lee, Esq. in the chair, and C. W. Coote, Secretary. Harding Bigelow, Esq. introduced H. P. Woodworth, Esq. who had made a reconnoisance when the water was at the highest point, and who read to the meeting an estimate he had made of the number of cubic yards of embankment requisite to protect the city from future inundations. The total amount of cubic yards required (commencing at Sutter's Slough) is 50,874. Mr. Woodworth adds to his memoranda : "From the above examination and estimates, it will be seen that Sacramento City can be easily protected against inundations, and that, too, at comparatively small expense.'' On motion of Major Snyder, a committee was appointed to wait upon the City Council relative to this subjec...
THE CITY CHARTER. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 9 February 1850
THE CITY CHARTER. The Charter (the first that has been enacted in California) will be found upon our first page, and as it is the law by which we are to be governed, every citizen should be familiar with its provisions. The President of the City Council has not received the Charter officially, hence the day of election is not yet fixed upon. As the document was printed on the 22d of January (we cannot ascertain when it was signed by the Governor) the election must take place about the 25th inst.

Arrival of Ihe Unicorn at San Francisco. — The U. S. P. M. steamship Unicorn, Capt. Porter, arrived at San Francisco on Tuesday last, having left Panama on the 11th ult. She brought 160 passengers, but no later dates from the States. The accident to the Crescent City is confirmed. The cross tail and other parts of the engine broke with a loud crash on the 16th December, three days out from New York. About all the passengers had arrived at Panama on sailing vessels. The Unicorn will leave for Panama on the 16th inst. ☞ The past week has thrown upon our table a large number of communications on the squatter and other questions.

ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 9 February 1850
ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD. NO. 11. Sacramento City. Jan. 28, 1850. To the Editor of the Placer Times : Sir — The importance of the great projected Railroad is so stupendous, that it is hoped some farther remarks in relation to it may not prove unacceptable to any friend of California ; and I therefore respectfully propose, through your columns, and those of every paper in the State, favorably inclined towards the work, to offer, occasionally, to my fellowcitizens, some of my humble views on the subject. As early as 1803, President Jefferson sent Lewis and Clarke to explore a route connecting the navigable water of the Missouri with that of the Columbia. In 1817, (or earlier) Col. Benton wrote some able articles on the importance of rendering that route practically available. In 1836, Judge Beardsley, in the Senate of New York, spoke of the great advantages and feasibility of a Railroad across the Rocky mountains. During the same year, and without any knowledge that such a Railro...
