[For the Alta California.] Lament of the Irish Gold Hunter. Tune — "I'm sitting on the stile, Mary." I'm sitting on the stile, Mary, Away up in the mines, A looking out for lumps of gold, And pockets all I finds. But the lumps I find is precious small, And very few at that, And I feel that I have been, Mary, A most almighty flat. There's lots of change up here, Mary, Tho' you'll find none in me; For I spent the whole that I was worth In coming o'er the sea; And though they says you've only got To take your pan and pick, A pocket full of gold you'll find — It isn't quite so thick. I bless you for that nice hung beef You put into my trunk, For when I got it 'tween my teeth I felt that I was hunk ; I bless you tor the sausages That lasted me so long — Tho' I'm thankful they are gone, Mary, For they smelt a little strong. I'm very dirty now, Mary, For water's hard to get Unless it rains, and then you're sure Of getting pretty wet; For there are no umbrellas here, And the rain comes thro...

I ADDRESS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 19 July 1849

ADDRESS Of the Legislative Assembly of the District of San Francisco, to the People of California, in reply to the Proclamation of Brevet Brig. Gen. Riley. The committee, to whom were referred certain resolutions having reference to a Proclamation issued by " Brev. Brig. Gen. Riley" to the people of the District of San Francisco, having had the subject under attentive and solemn consideration, would most respectfully submit the following report: Your committee have given the two several Proclamations of Gen. Riley an attentive consideration, and believe them to assert in substance the same leading principles, and as depending for their force and legality upon the same source of authority. We shall therefore treat of them together. We understand Gen. Riley as assuming these two clear and distinct positions : 1. That at the termination of the war, the Mexican civil law in force in California, and "not inconsistent with the constitution and treaties of the United States, must continue ...

The Cud of it Rmlmivn. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 19 July 1849

The End of a Revolution. ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY, JULY 19, 1849. A few weeks since we feIt called upon to vindicate in our columns the course taken by the citizens of San Francisco, in creating a Legislative Assembly and attempting to establish and put into operation a form of government for the general police of this district. We then narrated its rise and progress ; we now have to record its downfall ! By the fiat of the People — those who made it — it has died ! The resignations which we published last week, and those which we now give, settle the question beyond doubt. When the Legislative Assembly became satisfied that the course of Gen. Riley towards them, and the position they had assumed, would tend only to discord, anarchy, violence, and perhaps to bloodshed, if each party insisted upon its position, though they had no doubt of the correctness of the principles they had advanced, yet they were unwilling to use the powers vested by the people in them for the...

An Independent CS*vcrnm«ut! ' li [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 19 July 1849

An Independent Government ! In a proclamation of Gen Riley's fixing the time and place of holding the election in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Districts, which we published two weeks since, there occurs the following sentence: " It may not be improper here to remark that the instructions from Washington received by the steamer Panama since the issuing of that Proclamation fully confirm the views there set forth, and it is distinctly said in these instructions that ' the plan of establishing an Independent Government in California canot be sanctioned, no matter from what source it may come.' " To say nothing of the impropriety of dragging such a sentence as is marked by italics in the above quotation, before the public in so inappropriate a conjunction, (which we are willing to excuse on the ground of anxiety on the part of Gen. Riley and his advisers to shift the responsibility of their acts to broader shoulders,) we take this first opportunity to make a firm and unequivocal denia...
