SACRAMENTO CITY. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 6 April 1850

SACRAMENTO CITY. Saturday, March 30th, 1850. To the Editor of the Placer Times: Dear Sir : You have, doubtless, heard of the melancholy accident of this morning, resulting from the incautious blasting of logs on the corner of 5th and K streets; and it is only surprising that more fatalities of a similar nature have not, ere this, taken place. Thn victim of this criminal negligence was a Mr. Briggs, clerk in the Bull's Head. Every one coincides in speaking well of him. He had been educated for the ministry, and in his quiet and gentlemanly appearance gave fair promise of being an honor to the profession. At the time of the explosion he was seated at a door immediately fronting the log — perhaps some twenty paces off. A number of persons were passing at the time, some of whom were not very far from the flying and death-deal-ing missiles. One of these missiles, weighing about 10 lbs. sped its way toward the door where the subject of this notice was, all unconsciously, reading the morni...

Can there not, Mr Editor, be some preventtive put to this improper and dangerous practice of blasting logs in our most thronged and public streets! Respectfully your friend and servant, An Old Hand and one of Fremont's Men. Probable Murder of a Mail Carrier. -- We learn that about three weeks since the body of Mr Lewis R. Colgate, mail carrier between Natoma and Santa Barbara, was found upon the road, evidently murdered by some person or persons unknown. The mail bag, and mule ridden by the murdered man, were gone, and no trace has been heard of them. Mr. Colgate had been four months engaged in carrying the mail, and was a worthy, steady man, belonging, we believe, in the city of New York. -- Pacific News, 3d. Racing at San Jose. -- We understand that a quarter race came off at San Jose, on Monday, between a Sonoma Horse and a Don Andreas Pico Cavallo for $10,000 a side.

TO THE PUBLIC. The following protest was served on Wednesday morning last on the Hon. J. S. Thomas, at that time the highest legalized authority in the District. For reasons satisfactory to himself, his Honor has deemed it imperative on him to administer the oath of office to the returned ofticers : but it remains to be seen whether his course will be sanctioned by the authority above him, to which, in common with myself, he owes allegiance.

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 13 April 1850

CALIFORNIA. High towering o'er our broad and fruitful land, er head above the topmost twinkling star, ! saw, ib dream, a shining angel stand And hold a world-long balance in her hand. To that, dim forms were winging from afar, And, casting what they brought in either scale. They watched the trembling pointer's faintest jar, In vain round one scale gathered angels pale, And in it wept their tears, with powerful wail, To add a weight to all their diadems— For. in the other, iron crowns were thrown. Then came a bright young Form with flashing gems, And with the angels cast her golden grown — The other scale flew up. and this went down ! Aurora, N. V' Feb. 2. ii. p. w.

Mayor's Message. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 13 April 1850

Mayor's Message. To the Honorable the President and Council of Sacramento City: Gentlemen : — ln compliance with a duty imposed upon me by our city charter, I respectfully submit the following for your consideration. The first great and paramount object to be accomplished the present year, and one which involves the deepest interest of the citizens of Sacramento City, is the immediate construction of a levee, to protect permanently the city from future inundation by water. By the 7th section of the charter, the city is restrained from raising a revenue to exceed $100,000 for the current expenses of the year, without direct authority from the people. I. therefore, respectfully recommend the immediate passage of an order in Council directing an election at an early date, to raise the necessary revenue for the completion of the work. The estimated amount of material required for the entire work, ascertained by the late survey of the City Engineer, is about 160,000 cubic yards, and the ...

SAN FRANCISCO RAILROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 13 April 1850

SAN FRANCISCO RAILROAD. Roxbury, Nov. 17, 1849. Dear Sir — There are two joints in relation to the country through which the proposed railroad route passes from St. Louis to Sun Francisco, that have not been treated of in the statement submitted, and which I have since thought to be of such importance as to merit some attention. They are the agricultural capabilities and the climate of that region. From St. Louis to the Kansas River is a very fertile district, with an abundance of timber; and from the lust named point to the head waters of the Little Blue Rivers, 275 miles, tho soil cannot bo surpassed in the United States, as is indicated by tho luxuriance of tho forest trees and native. flora. So beautiful was it considered by Bryant, that he calls it "the future Eden of America." By referring to tho map. it will be scon that it is traversed by numerous streams and mers, eomu of which have good mill sites upon them. The immense plain, situated between the Platte or Nebraska River ...
