"LAND TITLES vs. SQUATTERS." [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 16 February 1850
"LAND TITLES vs. SQUATTERS." was the northern bounds of Louisiana, as ceded by Spain to France in 1800 and purchased by the United States in 1803. Now, sir, under these circumstances, I submit that your correspondent is guilty, either of gross ignorance of the subject on which he attempts to write, or gross misrepresentation ; and I leave him to choose either horn of the dilemma. But, sir, suppose he had been correct (which he is not) in his assertion that the "ground upon which the town (Dubuque) stood was covered by a Spanish grant " Why, sir, it would have been the best, the very best, title the claimant could have had, provided it was a valid one. I am, Mr. Editor, an old resident of Louisiana, where these titles have been contested more and oftener than in all the other States put together; and I make the assertion without fear of contradiction, never has there been a decision against the claimant, where he has proved a good and valid Spanish title. That a majority of the claim...

FANNY HALL [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 16 February 1850
FANNY HALL. BY CHARLES G. EASTMAN. The sweetest girl of all I know Is charming Fanny Hall, The wildest at a husking, The gayest at a ball. Her cheek is like a Jersey peach, Her eye is blue and clear, And her lip is like the sumac In the autumn of a year. Can*va never made a hand Like hers, so plump and fair ; Poor Raphael had been crazed with her Madonna brow and hair ; And I'm inclined to think if Powers Could see her, he would grieve To find a romping Yankee girl Had beaten Mrs. Eve ! There 's not a blemish in her form, No fault about her face ; Sit down and gaze from morn till night, You 'II find her perfect grace. And then, to finish all, her voice ! From the sweetest bird's in spring You could n't tell its warble ! — but She " does n't know a thing !"
