The depth of the river and channels, as welI as their capacity for navigation, are abundantly attested in the fact, that at this present time thirteen seagoing vessels, suc...

ADDRESS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 26 July 1849

ADDRESS Of the Legislative Assembly of the Distict of Sanm Francisco, to the People of California, in reply to the Proclamation of Brevet Brig. Gen. Riley. (Continued.) The power of Congress to organise Territorial governments has been seriously questioned. The exercise of such a power has heretofore been made by the consent of the governed inhabitants. Your committee are aware that Congress has claimed " exclusive and unlimited power of legislation" over the Territories; 1 Kent, 384. And that this claim has been sanctioned by many of our jurists, and by judicial decisions. The precise question, under a state of facts that would place it in its strongest light, whether Congress could disregard the reserved rights of the people of a territory, against their consent, made known in a legal and regular form, and proceed so far as to exercise all the powers of government, and adopt and pass an entire civil code, has never, to the knowledge of your committee, been fairly and fully present...

Later from Europe. ENGLAND. — The bill for the modification of the Navigation Laws has been carried in the House of Lords by a majority of 10 in favor of the Ministry. These laws may now be considered as virtually repealed. The result has given the Whig Ministry a new tenure of office. The arguments on the writ of error brought by W. S. O'Brien and McManus have been read before the Lords, and without hearing counsel for the Crown the Law Lords and Judges unanimously decided that the errors assigned by the plaintiffs could not be maintained by the arguments and that the judgment of the Court of Queen's Bench in Ireland must stand affirmed. It is now expected that the sentence of transportation will be carried into effect before the 1st proximo. It is rumored that the prosecution of Duffy is abandoned. FRANCE. — From Paris the report is still repeated that the rupture between the President and M. Napoleon Bonaparte is complete. A fierce quarrel it is said rages between them. Their qua...

Placer lntelligence. [From the Placer Times of July 9th.] A movement has taken place in the Gold Region, which, from its probable results, calls not only for the intervention of the civil and military authorities, but seems to require an earnest expression of their feelings from all those citizens of the United States, who have a regard for the honor of their country, and who are resolved to maintain it. We allude to the forcible expulsion of certain foreigners and naturalized citizens of the United States from the Placers of the Middle Fork and neighborhood by an armed body of men calling themselves Americans. Of three individuals thus expelled, whom we have seen, one is an old resident of California and a naturalized citizen of the United States. Another is a native Peruvian and naturalized citizen of the United States, who has, to our knowledge, periled his life many times in this country, fighting under the American flag, and who was severely beaten by the enemy because he refus...

A DUEL. — A duel was fought on Friday morning last in the western part of the town. Both parties are said to have behaved " handsomely," and one of them went off the ground with a severe graze on the side of his face and head. This was considered a sufficient salvo for "wounded honor," and we believe the matter has since been amicably arranged. The quarral is said to have grown out of some misunderstanding at a faro table.
