From the Boston Journal RAILROAD TO CALIFORNIA [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 16 February 1850

From the Boston Journal. RAILROAD TO CALIFORNIA. In our first number of the California Journal, we alluded to some of the projects for building this magnificent work, expressing an opinion in favor of that submitted by P P. F. Degrand of this city. Since that period, petitions have been circulated in Boston, and other parts of New England, asking Congress to grant an Act of Incorporation to a private company, who are to proceed with the work according to the provisions of this plan. These petitions have been numerously signed, and among the signatures we find many of our most influential and intelligent citizens. We notice, also, that resolutions decidedly approving of Mr. Degrand's scheme were unanimously adopted at a public meeting held in Philadelphia a few days since. A committee, including the Mayor and other prominent citizens, was appointed. also, to co-operate in urging the adoption of this project. These things indicate the course of public opinion, and are the premonitory ...

Damages for Seduction in Massachusells [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 16 February 1850

Damages for Seduction in Massachusetts. —In the Supreme Court, at New Bedford, Daniel S. Dickerman recovered $2 800 damages of Samuel W. Graves for seducing and debauching his wife. The crime was committed about a year ago, up to which time the wife of the plaintiff was proved to be a modest and chaste woman. The plaintiff has since obtained a divorce from her on the ground of her criminal intercourse with Graves. In the suit against the latter for damages, the woman appeared as witness for her late husband, and testified fully and distinctly to the circumstances alleged in the plaintiff's writ. The only defence set up was that the plaintiff and his wife connived to bring about what took place between her and the defendant, but little evidence seems to have been brought forward to sustain this, as the damages allowed by the jury were only $200 below the amount claimed by the plaintiff. We do not recollect any similar case to this in the courts of Massachusetts, and the presiding jud...

the whole, we are fully convinced that Sacramento is bound to shine.—Alta Cal. In a letter to the A!ta California, friend D. makes quite a wonderment about one of our every day dinners at the City Hotel. He says : ☞ Many inquiries having been made for papers containing friend Durivage's remarks concerning matters and things hereabout, we " But prepare yourself for astonishment.— Poor mortals in San Francisco, who, with elated ideas have called for a gentle salmon and have seen a soft white fish placed before them, will appreciate my feelings when I say that I yesterday sat down to a real bona fide, sure enough salmon, hard and fresh, but one day out of the Sacramento.— The waters of the Kennebec and Merrimac could not produce a finer specimen of this kind of the finny tribe. The palate of the veriest epicure was never tickled with a daintier morsel, and a maiden could never have blushed a more lovely color, when the question, ' do you love me,' was popped at her by a devoted lover, ...

From the Alta California, 18th PETITION TO THE POSTMASTER GENERAL [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 23 February 1850

From the Alta California, 16th. PETITION TO THE POSTMASTER GENERAL. Below we give a petition which was passed into our office yesterday, signed by the first citizens of San Francisco, comprising the principal mercantile firms of this city. We entirely approve the sentiments therein advanced, and conceive the regulation of the mails between this country and Panama to be a matter which should engage the earliest attention of our government. Nor is it necessary for us to remark how cordially we unite with the general wish that steam communication should be opened with Oregon. To the Honorable J. Collamer, Postmaster General of the United States: We the undersigned, merchants and traders of San Francisco, California, would respectfully call your attention to the many inconveniences and serious losses in business to which we are subjected by the manner in which the mail service in this state is conducted. We would in the first place state that it frequently occurs upon the arrival of the...

Real Estate Speculation in New York – [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 23 February 1850

Real Estate Speculation in New York.— The Express of a late date says : The excitement at the Merchant's Exchange is constantly increasing The auction sales by Bleecker & Franklin were yesterday crowded with buyers. The former sold about two hundred and fifty lots in Brooklyn, situated on and near the Flatbush road, beyond what was formerly known as Parmentier's Garden, at prices ranging from $250 to $300 — these prices were stated to be much beyond anything anticipated, and higher than the wildest rates of 1836. A piece of ground of twenty-nine acres sold a few months since at $18,000, was resold a few weeks since at $25,000, and yesterday again sold for $34,000. Seguin's pond sold at private sale for $40,000. It is stated that the Hon. Mr. Thurston, delegate from Oregon, in crossing the Isthmus, lost his trunk, containing his credentials.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 23 February 1850

☞ We are pained to learn that the cause of Mr. Cornwall's resignation of his seat in the Assembly was an affection of the eyes. It is said he is now totally blind. [Placer Times. The Placer Times's information is incorrect. We know that the resignation of this Assemblyman was not for the cause ascribed ; that he had vacated his seat in the House some time before the affliction, to which the Times imputes the reason of his retiring, came upon him. [Alta Cal. Of course our friends of the ' Alta' 'know' all about the cause of Mr. Cornwall's resignation, only their ' information' is decidedly erroneous, and is not calculated to do justice to Mr. C. in this matter. The facts of the case are as follows : On the 26th day of January Mr. Cornwall's eyes became so inflamed that he could not attend the sittings of the House, and was not out of his room the whole day. On the 27th the attack assumed a more serious form, and the following day he sent in his resignation, and immediately embarked f...

FROM SAN JOSE [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 23 February 1850

FROM SAN JOSE. The Placer. — We have nothing of especial interest from the mines this week. The roads are in excellent condition, and we understand that Mr. Birch's Stage line for the Mill will commence running in a few days. Mr. B. has purchased several fine animals for this line, and his stock is now in capital order. It is his intention to have horses harnessed at each stopping place, so that no delay will occur in changing teams; and the arrangements in all respects will be equal to anything of this kind in the States. Gentlemen recently arrived from the mountains say that the snow is leaving quite fast, and that the hills present a lovely appearance, being now covered with flowers. Washington's Birth-Day. — Salutes were fired yesterday in honor of the birth-day of Washington, and during the evening we noticed various indications of a holiday. ☞ The Election to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Dr. White takes place on the 28th. There are a number of candidates s...

ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 23 February 1850

ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD. tion in your paper, if convenient, will at any rate oblige Your very obt. servt. JOHN PLUMBE. TO THE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA AND OREGON. Fellow Citizens: Constitutional scruples have never built a railroad; nor can constitutional scruples exist, even for a moment, against a work like the one we propose; because this work will place all the resources of the Union — naval, military and financial — within the reach of our fellow citizens on the Pacific Coast, and will consequently form the best, the cheapest, the most scientific defence of California and of Oregon. In this point of view, it is pre-eminent in its effect, and cannot be classed as simply a local work. Is there a statesman — is there a man of common sense, who will maintain that it is unconstitutional for the United States to defend our own territories, merely because the plan proposed will effect this, without charge upon the Public Treasury? merely because the plan proposed will render the for...

The Fourteen Pound Lump!—We noticed in a recent number of our paper the finding of a lump of quartz rock interspered with gold, weighing fourteen pounds or thereabouts. We learn since that the specimen to which we then alluded was dug at the Auburn dry diggings, upon the North Fork of the American River, about fifty miles from this city, and was the joint property of three young men who were partners. This specimen was discovered about 18 inches below the surface. We also learn that this magnificent specimen, which we saw, has been purchased by V. F. Perkins, Esq. of Maine, and Capt. James Rider of Mass. and that Mr. Perkins will return to the States in the 1st of March steamer, with said specimen for exhibition. Mr. Perkins has visited many of the mining localities in the northern diggings, and will be able to communicate much interesting, useful and important information relating to the business, the gold diggings, and life generally in California; and we predict for him the most ...
