Mtntr of the Country—.o. '-i. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 8 April 1851
Mtntr of the Country— .\o. '-i. In our article of yesterday, we noticed the present state and prospects of the country, principally as regards its agricultural resaurces; but in whichever direction we look, signs of an improved and a more healthy state of things meet the eye. Every legitimate source of business appears to be yielding ample profits : money is becoming more plentiful : capital to a large extent is being invested in operations which are indicative of confidence in 'the permanent prosperity of the country : from almost all parts we hear favorable accounts from the miners, with the exception of those who were led off to the North after the ignis fattens of * : very rich diggings." Every one seems contented : every one seems full of hope. That portion of our population that might have formed an alloy to this general revival — those individuals whose mental constitution always leads them to look at the gloomy side of things — has fortunately been largely drafted off by the...

T'ae New Almadcn Mining Company. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 8 April 1851
The New Almaden Mining Company. The New Almaden quicksilver mines, are situated in the stupendous range of mountains, bounding the southern portion of the fertile valley of Santa Clara. They are about fourteen miles distant from San Jose, the present seat of government of California. The company have expended several hundred thousand dollars in opening and working this mine. It was opened, we believe, in 1845, but it was not until two or or three years after that preparations were made to work it on an extensive and scientific scale. After careful surveys and examinations, the company seem to have formed the opinion that these mines will continue for many years to yield a large revenue. They have consequently expended heavy sums in the erection of buildings, the purchase of mining materials, horses, mules, etc. We propose, shortly, to give a correct tabular statement of the annual receipts and disbursements of the company. At present we will remark merely that the ore is of the rich...
For the Daily Union TO MEMORY-THE PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 8 April 1851
For the Daily Union TO MEMORY-THE PRESENT. (an impromptu) Dear memory, take this hour of hours— This loveliest bud of Time's rare flowers, And weave it in a ehaplet fair. To bind thy flowing golden hair. Dear memory, keep it fresh and bright. With sweet regret and sad delight— With tears and smiles— and oh permit, No earthly stain to shadow it. And when the winter clouds of woe, Steal o'er my heart, then memory show, This purest, "loveliest, of life's hours— This fairy bloom — this flower of flowers. CYRIL. For the Daily UnioaTO A****. I would not give one smile of thine, For all the names renowned in story — I'd rather press thy lips to mine, Than wear their richest wreath of glory . I would not take a monarch's crown, For thy sweet voice, like dews distilling — I'd throw the cumbrous burden down. To meet thy warm embraces thrilling ! The golden sun, if I could coin— The silver moon and star?— at pleasure, My soul and heart with thine to join, I'd spurn as trash that heap of treasu...
