Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 23 February 1850
Advertising.—One of the great secrets of trade, says the Lancaster Union is a judicious and well-directed system of advertising. An advertisement is to those who visit our city to make purchases or transact business with our mechanics and professional men what the finger-board is to a traveler in a strange land—pointing to the place he desires to find. Hundreds and thousands of persons look to the cards of merchants and mechanics, &amp;c. for articl*s they are in search of, and are much more likely to visit the house that advertises what they need, than stumble along the streets from one store to another to find what they want. Tragedy in Chili. — The following tragical affair affords another proof that truth is stranger than fiction : Among the strangers of distinction who for many years came to spend the winter in Paris, were M. and Madame Arcos, Spaniards of immense wealth. Failing to make their usual visit last winter, it was thought their Castilian pride could not accom...
ARRIVAL OF THE OREGON. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 March 1850
ARRIVAL OF THE OREGON. The U. S. M. steamship Oregon, Lieut. Patterson, commander, arrived at San Francisco on Friday morning. Feb. 22d from Panama, whence she sailed on the 2d ult. The Oregon brought 201 male and 9 female passenders The Oregon touched at San Blas on the 13th, at which place Reuben Withers came on board. Congress had been fully organized. Hon. Howell Cobb was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives. The message of Gen. Taylor to Congress is published in all the state papers. We cannot attempt its publication at length, but extract some portions of it relating to California, which occupies a very considerable portion of the document. It appears to be a very sensible, clear and comprehensive paper, and one which will give general satisfaction. Mr. Secretary Ewing's report is also an interesting document in many respects. California is engrossing, as it should do, the most marked attention from a*I quarters.— Congress appears to have gone to work in earnest and...

☞ To prevent disappointment individuals desirous of getting The Times regularly should leave their names at the office, Second street, between K and L. Price 25 cents per copy, payable to the carrier. Advertisements received until 12 M. on Friday of each week. The Election.—The voting to fill the vacancy in the Assembly, occasioned by the resignation of Dr. White, took place on Thursday, and resulted, as will be seen by the returns below, in the election of Thos. J. Henley. Very little excitement or interest was manifested on the occasion, until late in the day, when the balloting went on quite briskly. Mr. Henley, we believe, is a man of experience in legislation, and if he gets down to the capital before the Legislature adjourns, he will be of ' some service' to this District. There was no squatter candidate in the field. We have no returns from the Fort or towns above. The returns from Vernon and other places will undoubtedly have the effect of increasing Mr. Henley's majority : ...
FROM BOSTON AND THE ISTHMUS [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 March 1850
FROM BOSTON AND THE ISTHMUS. We were a little surprised the other day at seeing our friend Joseph A. Haines, Esq. (of the firm of Read, Wade &amp; Co. Boston,) peram- bulating our city again. Mr. H. left for home in the November steamer, and returned in the steamship Oregon last week. He represents business in Boston as being exceedingly dull, and things generally in a " stale, flat and unprofitable" condition, as compared with our go-ahead arrangements. The California fever was still raging, and great numbers were making preparations to visit the "golden country." Mr. Haines's partners, it seems, thought it was not best " to give it up so, " although a "pile"' of large dimensions had been realized, and Mr. H. liking Sacramento about as well as the "Athens of America," had no objection to making another trip. The passage from Boston to San Francisco occupied 36 days. The road across the Isthmus remains in the same wretched condition as last year. Robberies were committed occ...
INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 2 March 1850
INTERESTING ITEMS. We find the following news paragraphs in papers just received from the States. We will venture to say that California correspondents can lie with greater " volubility" than any set of men in existence : Chinese Slaves in California.—The Baltimore Sun asserts, on the authority of its private correspondent, that the number of Chinese arriving in California is enormous. They are brought in cargoes by English vessels, and sold as servants to the highest bidder, on the Cooley system, a shade less than absolute slavery. This is a species of trade that will soon get its quietus from the State government. The Temperance Test in California. —The New York Tribune, in speaking of the late election in California, says that Capt. Sutter, one of the candidates for Governor, was effectively opposed because he was a drinking man. If this be so, it speaks well for California, and places her considerably in advance of some of the older states. " There will be a famine here this win...
