The Suspension of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 May 1856

The Suspension of Law. If there fx- any who look upon tiie events whicl have recently occurred in this city, in the light ol retributive acts for the particular crimes whicl have in the persons of Casey and Cora been pun ished, to them we would say that their view of tlx scenes through which we have passed, has beei both superficial and narrow. Nor is that light a proper one which represent* the action taken as a revolution. Revolutions end either iv anarchy or the establishment of a new form of government Neither of these will be the result of the late move .mcnt. It is true that Justice has stcp|x-d in U exercise the prerogatives which the people hail hitherto assigned to Law. Such an assumption ol power can only be justified on the ground of immediate necessity and almost ]x;rfect unanimity. These conditions it cannot be dcuied were the concomitants of the past crisis. The crisis over, our citizens will return to their occupations. The musket and bayonet have been laid down, and ...

CITY NEWS. | [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 May 1856

CITY NEWS. | —Everything was quiet and cool yesterday.l The terrible excitement in which our city has been kept.fl during the lust ten days, seems to have entirely subsided,l nud men have returned to their customary business, nndß associations. Yesterday the merchants, and the auctioneers, and the business men of every description resumed the conduct of their affairs, which during the past week have been left very much to themselves. About the rooms of the Vigilance Committee, in Sacramento Street, but very few pcrsuvs were gathered, and but one guard was stationed at the door. It was understood that the Executive Committee was in session during the entire day, although what tbey were doing seemed to be entirely unknown. We are glad that the excitement has been quieted, and hope there may never be an occasion fot another one so terrible. Eowaro McGowan.—lt is stated that McGowan, who, with Peter Wightman, has been indicted by the Grand Jury for the murder ofJan.es King of William, g...

The Herald on the Vigilance Committee of 1851. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 May 1856

The Herald on the Vigilance Committee of 1851. We give Ix-low extracts from editorial articles which apjicarcd in tbe San Francisco fill add, daring the summer of 1851. If will lie seen that the grounds on which the Vigilance Committee of that year wen- justified an- equally |Hitent now. It is true that the circumstances are not strictly anal ogous, but if we rightly understand the Herald's present position, it objects to the Committee because it is an illegal Ixxly. and its memliers are not responsible in the manner in which those in authority arc customarily held to responsibility. Hut certainly if a bixly of eight or nine hundred men were in 185] justified in taking the execution of law iv this city into their own hands against strum." op'xrsition ; a society numbering near thrrt thousand, and whi>se number* could have been doubled had necessity culled or opportunity lieen afforded for such increase, had like justification for similar conduct, particularly when it is c...

I NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Mines.—The Shasta Gmirirr says: "For the information of those miners who hare been working claims where water has given out, or is likely soon to do so, we would state, upon the authority of a gentleman living in the vicinity of I*wiston, Trinity county, that there is an abundant supply of water and diggings at that place, where a man can average from three to five dollars per day. These diggings are situated upon the Dats near tbe Trinity river, and about one mile from Wood's Itridge. The " Rush Creek Company " charges two dollars ;m r day f>r a sluice-head of watei.

The dish of potatoes was accordingly brought to him, and taken away when he hail helped himself. The same request was repeated to the servant as each successive course of meats was served, until the waiter, having become familiar with the order, brought the potatoes withont further request; and thinking that if the gentleman wished potatoes with one dish he would like them with all, continued to bring them to him through the whole dinner, dessert and all, puddings, fruits, 4c, much to the gentleman's annoyance, and the amusement of those who witnessed it.
