Gathered Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 5 April 1850

Gathered Flowers. [Collected for the Pacific News.] BY THRENDOS. What can be more finely exquisite than the following little gem by Henry W. Longfellow, the poet of" Leafy Cambridge :" THE OPEN WINDOW. The old house by the lindens Stood silent in the shade, And on the gravel pathway The light and shadow played. I saw the nursery windows Wide open to the air, But the faces of the children, They were no longer there. The large Newfoundland house-dog Was standing by the door, He looked for his little playmates, That would return no more. They walked not under the lindens, They played not in the hall, But shadow, and silence, and sadness, Were hanging over all. The birds sang in the branches With sweet, familiar tone, But the voices of the children Will be heard in dreams alone. And the boy who walked beside me, He could not understand Why closer in mine, ah .' closer, I pressed his soft, warm. hand. LoDgfellow is always welcome. He is interesting in "Outre Mer ;" — he is mysterious, ye...

|£ Mail Arrangements on the IsthW mus. — The Panama Echo of February 23d makes the following remarks on our new Consul at Panama, Mr. Corwine : "We were pleased to notice the promptness and good order which attended the distribution of the last mail from California. Mr. Cor wine, the American Consul, is entitled to the thanks of the Panama population for his exertions to reduce to system the Post Office arrangements here. We have bften for so long a time deprived of all facilities in the transmission of correspondence, that we feel extremely grateful to the men who have undertaken to remedy the evil."

The Whale Fisheries. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 8 April 1850

The Whale Fisheries. As California increases in mercantile importance, the attention of the world will necessarily be drawn more and more to the commerce of the Pacific. We shall derive much wealth directly and indirectly from the whale fisheries of this ocean. Any thing, therefore, relating to the subject even at this early period cannot fail to be of interest to us. We make the following extracts from our exchanges, giving valuable statistical information with regard to this important' branch of commerce : The Whale Fishery. — The Whalemen's Shipping List of the present week contains its annual review of the condition of the whaling fleet, as compared with former years. From this review it appears that of the 581 vessels employed in the whale fishery on the 1st of January, 1849, 72 have been withdrawn, lost or condemned, during the year — the greater part of which have been transferred to the California trade. The diminution amounts to 24.626 tons. The amount of oil and bone impor...

The Town of lartiiez, [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 8 April 1850

The Town of lartiiez, Situated in a lonely nook on the straits of Karquinez, nearly opposite the town of Benicia, is tbe wayside village of Martinez. It is quiet and sequestered, surrounded by romantic hills and shadowed by groves, the bright green foliage of which contrasts prettily with the plain white cottages extending far up the slopes of the river in which the town lies buried. The scenery around Martinez is ttoe most beautiful in this part of the country. The soil of the exclusive woodlands stretching for miles in the rear of the town, is generally capable of cultivation, and farms which were Jong ago tilled by the former masters of California, are still in the undisturbed possession of men of other times in this section of our country. Martinez is a little over one year old, and although it has never been pressed into the market of new city lots r nor more than the commonest exertions been put forth by its proprietors, it now contains all the elements of prosperity, with a p...

Harbor Master. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 8 April 1850

Harbor Master. We are happy to see that this important office is about to be filled by our city fathers. The Commerce of Sacramento is daily becoming more extensive. We perceive by our exchanges that many vessels are sailing from the various Atlantic cities for Sacramento di. rect. We are happy (o see this, as it will not only be for the benefit of our merchants, but of the miners. Much unnecessary delay will be avoided, and the various articles of merchandize which these vessels will bring can be afforded at lower prices to the mining community than they possibly could if the goods were unshipped below and then transported up the river. Our commerce is extensive enough already to demand the services of a Harbor Master ; but as it increases — which it inevitably will do — the inconveniences of not having this office filled will become absolutely insupportable. We wonder that difficulties have not already arisen from the want of such an officer, since some positions at the levee are ...

Henri Berz. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 8 April 1850

Henri Berz. We are happy to announce to the public | that Herz is to favor us with his presence, j Several of our influential citizens seem to have taken the matter ap- in good earnest ; and sufficient inducements have been held out to draw the great piauist here. He writes as follows : " I had quite a crowd at my concert Tuesday ; to-night's will be still better v and I intend to give the third on the ninth. I shall go to Sacramento City on Wednesday, and would like to give a concert as soon as possible, intending to loave California by the next steamer." We were well assured that our citizens ' would do the right thing in this matter, and receive Herz creditably, not only to him but' to thems,elvesr We have not been disappoint- ! cd. From the general tone of feeling in our ! community we consider ourselves justified in predicting for him crowded houses. The fashion of our place will of course attend, and the vast body of our citizens will not fail to hear, and catch a glimpse of t...

Acknowledgement. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 8 April 1850

Acknowledgement. As the Sacramento Transcript steps into the field of labor, and brings its best endeavors to bear for the good of California, the lit- { tie stranger is greeted on all hands with a kindness it certainly had no right to expect. Thus does our worthy cotemporary of the Placer Times take us by the hand : "Sacramento Transcript. — This new journal was introduced to our citizens on Monday morning last, and its appearance and tone seem to give universal satisfaction. The editorial department is under the charge of Messrs. Ewer and Fitch, the former having r;cently retired from the Pacific News, j and the latter gentleman is well known as the former editor of the Panama Star. All the partners are practical printers, save two, which is a sufficient guaranty that the establishment will be conducted with that energy and ability which the rapid progress of our city demands. The Transcript appears three times a week, which will give an opportunity to our merchants to " keep befo...

From Weavers Creek. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 8 April 1850

From Weavers Creek. We have just met ah acquaintance from the mines on Weaver's Creek, who informs us that thiee men dug out, ori Monday last, 800 dollars worjh of gold dust; — and that on the following day they dug out five hundred dollars worth. An Indian, also, on Monday, who was working for a physician, picked up in these mines a lump of gold weighing two pounds. There was no quartz mixed with the gold. Another individual found, on Tuesday last, a lump which weighed sixteen ounces. This lump was also pure gold unmixed with quartz — and in its shape it was flat, oval, and about the size of the palm of one's hand. Nevertheless miners are at present going farther North, as the waters are so high on Weaver's Creek, owing to the melting of the snows, that no work can be done on the river. There are probably diggings in the ravines, but if we are rightly informed the digging will not commence on the rivers until next month.

Henri Herz. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 8 April 1850

Henri Herz. Full and fashionable audiences are greeting the celebrated composer at San Francisco. The following are the remarks of the Alta California on the First Concert op Henry Herz. — We were delighted to see a numerous auditory at the National Theatre to welcome the composer, Henry Herz. There is scarcely an amateur musician who is not familiar with the name of the composer, and fond of the productions of his rare genius — scarcely a piano that has not given a f eble echo of his Hea-ven-inspired thoughts. To hear this musical celebrity, then, perform his own melodies, and give them all the force and character of which his soul is capable, was a treat which but few cuuld resist the temptation of enjoying. Among the audience were quite a number of ladies, some of them passionately fond of music. Mr. Luya, the fluatist, made a very favorable impression in a solo upon the flute at the commencement of the concert. Sig. Roncovieri, in the introduction and cavatini from "La Favorite"...
