Stockton. The undersigned avails himself of this method of offering to the public an opportunity to secure advantageous locations in the town of Stockton. The survey has been made by Capt Hammond, U. S. A . and Wm. Norris, Esq.; the maps are completed and may be seen at the office of S. S. Howison, in the building of the subscriber at Stockton. Those persons who have visited Stockton either on business, or in passing to and from the mines, need no description of its location, and it is deemed quite sufficient to state, for the information of others, that the town is situated at the head of navigation on the San Joaquin, embracing within its limits four navigable channels, communicating directly with the river, and each affording ample depth of water for vessels of any draught usually engaged in the inland trade. The depth of the river and channels, as well us their capacity for navigation, are abundantly attested in the fact, that at this present time thirteen seagoing vessels, such...

TOWN OF BOSTON. — Lots at the town of Boston, beautifully situated at the junction of the American Fork and Sacramento rivers, are now offered for sale. The town of Boston is only a few hundred yards above Sutter's Embarcadero, on the north side of the American Fork, and in the immediate vicinity of the gold mines, and from its situation possesses superior advantage for business purposes. The land which forms the site of the town is twelve feet above the highest water mark, and the river is twenty-three feet in depth at the banks. It is believed that no place offers greater inducements for investments than this town, as in addition to the above mentioned advantages it has a fine climate, good soil, with an abundance of excellent water, and is free from inundation at all seasons. The town has been surveyed by Mr. J. Halls, and laid out in a convenient manner, and a plan of it can be seen, and any other information relating to it obtained on application to .

For the Ala California. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 12 July 1849

For the Alta California. Mr. Editor : There can be nothing clearer to my mind, than the fact, that either Gen. Riley has misconstrued the spirit and meaning of the instructions given him from Washington, or that the government has been misinformed as to the correct state of things here, or has " paltered in a double sense" in reference to this subject. Suppose we examine a little and see. The President, in his late message, after saying in substance, that the government established here during the war by our military and naval commanders, in virtue of the rights of war, ceased, after the establishment of Peace, to derive any obligatory force from that source of authority, and that the only government remaining after the war was the one established during the war, then goes on to say, that he regarded this as a de facto government, and that it might be temporarily continued by the " presumed consent of the inhabitants." Now, as all the powers of government are held to be derivative a...

FROM CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 12 July 1849

FROM CHINA. Until our advices from China, per Per. bark Pacifico, received last week, the political horizon in this quarter wore every Indication of a rapidly approaching tempest; the international difficulties pending would on the 6th of April have reached a crisis, and every day of the fast consuming time, seemed more and more favorable to another rupture between the Celestial Empire, and hot blooded and bullying John. A compliance with the terms of the treaty, of April, 1848, entered into between Sir John Davis and Keying, Imperial Commissioners, would have obliged the Chinese to open the gates of their city of Canton to foreigners on the sixth of April the year following. Long before the arrival of the day named, it was manifestly the fear of the English officials that the issue of the agreement would not be in accordance with its full stipulations. Perhaps the impolitic betrayal of these fears, induced in a great measure a feeling of resistance on the pert of a certain class co...

Placer ltiiclligciM-t'. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 12 July 1849

Placer lntelligence. We have nothing direct of a later date than quoted in our last paper. But from the Placer Times of the 26th ult., we take the following; " Our intelligence from the Placer is of a most meagre and unsatisfactory nature. All that we hear from any source comes in the 'questionable shape' of rumor. On the North and Middle Forks we learn that the daily average per man is about an ounce to an ounce and a half. Those who Iabor earnestly make more than we have stated as the general average. The water in those rivers is subsiding rapidly, and every day the prospects of the miners improve. We have seen a piece of gold weighing 40 ounces which was taken from the North Fork within the last two weeks, and we are assured by a gentleman whose veracity is beyond question, that a piece weighing 25 pounds was taken from the same place shortly after the 40 ounce piece was extracted. Near Mormon Island, last week, three men with two machines took out $4,848 in three days. These min...
