Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 13 April 1850

A Beautiful Touch of Nature. — On Monday morning three Germans, evidently working men, went to tho Astor House, and asked to sec the Hungarians. They were immediately introduced,,and remained Homo timo in conversation with Gov. Ujhazy and family. Finally two of them withdrew and left the third, who continued to talk, but seemed to have something to say which he could not easily get out. At last, addressing MHo Clara, the daughter of Mr. I'jha/.y, he said that as exiles, who wore rcmoto from country and friends, and whoso property had been confiscated in consequence of their dovotion to freedom and the people," rights, they must bo in an embarrassed condition. Then drawing from his pocket ft bank note, be said : " Fraulcin, this is but little, for 1 am a poor man, and have only what I earn, but I could not refrain from giving tho tribute of my mite to you. Receive this. I beg you, as the hoart-olfering of a workman to the defenders of liberty. Mile Ujhasy, who had not expected any th...

THE SPIRIT OF PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 April 1850

THE SPIRIT OF PROGRESS. The gloomy night is breaking, E'eu now th» sunbeams rest, With a fault, jet cheering radiance On the lull-tops of the West. The mi*!? are slowly rising From the valley and the plain, And a spirit is awaking, . That shall never deep again. And ye may hear, that listen, The spirit's stirring song, That surges like the ocean, With its solemn bats along. M Ho.' can we stay the River*, Or bind the wings of Light, Or bring back to the Morning The old departed Night ? *• Nor shall ye check its impulse, Nor stay it for an hour, Until earth's groaning millions Have felt its healing power VI That spirit is progression, Li the vigor of its youth ; The foenian of Oppression, And its armor is the Truth. Old Error with his regions Must fall beneath its wrath : Nor blood, nor tears, nor anguish, Will mark its brilliant path. But onward, upward, Heavenward, The spirit plijl will «oar, Tii! Peace and Lov»- shall triumph, And Falsehood reign no more.

From the Alta California. Vrrival of the Tennessee ! [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 April 1850

From the Alta California. Arrival of the Tennessee ! The U. S. Pacific Mail Steamship Tennessee, Capt. Cole, arrived at San Francisco last Sunday morning from Panama, coming to anchor about 12 o'clock. Being Sunday the citizens of San Francisco flocked to the various points of debarkation, and the harbor swarmed with small boats, filled with living freight, eiger to board the new steamship, and obtain intelligence from friends far away The Tennessee left Panama on the evening of the 23d ult. and has consequently been twenty days making the trip ; this, however, is attributed to the fact of her coal being of an inferior quality, as she has given evidence of being a very fast sailer. Her qualities as a sea boat, we heard highly spoken of by passengers on board. She brought from Panama the largest number of passengers that ever arrived at this port in one vessel, enclosing within her staunch ribs 551 souls, exclusive of the officers and crow. The mail from New York had not reached Pana...

Correspondence of the Alta California [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 April 1850

Correspondence of the Alta California. Panama, March 24, 1850. Messrs. Editors: As the Tennessee is just leaving, it may be interesting to some of your readers to know what has been going on here for the last three weeks. Row stock has been on the rise several fights have taken place, mostly among gamblers, in one of which a man by the name of Parker was shot by W. G. Torrance, of the Miners' restaurant, in this place ; he, Parker, is since dead. The tardy arrival of the Tennessee gave rise to some indignation meetings, but also, one laughable occurred. While the feeling was at its height, a meeting was being held in the plaza, sundry resolutions — having for their purpurt to take the Panama steamer, and go to your city without leave or license — were being passed, when a party came from the walls and said the Tennessee had just dropped her anchor. Immediately all thoughts of the Panama were done away with, and indignation stock fell 100 per cent. Where before were to be seen nothin...

To the Public. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 April 1850

To the Public. A year has elapsed since tho undersigned commenced the publication of a newspaper in Sacramento. Tho present site of this important and increasing city was the sparsely inhabited Embarcadero of Fort Sutler, when lit* pioneer press was established in this valley, and that giant enterprise which has reared up a metropolis from tho wilderness which then surrounded us, has exerted its influence in the cause of the press, and given to the public a daily i-sue of news in the present fair dimensions of our contemporary and self, from the ten-by-sixtccn size of the Placer Times a year agono. The undersigned are grateful for this kindly sustenance — grateful, that in time of deluge and general business depression, that spirit and energy which has maintained the importance of this locality, has extended its generous and timely aid to tho press of Sacramento, and while they this day offer to tho public the first number of their tri-weekly paper, they desire to hope that their ef...

The Sacramento. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 April 1850

The Sacramento. until the commencement of the past week, tho general result of each days observation showed a gradual and continued rise in the river, notwithstanding a temporary abatement, and theoccasional fall of a few inches. The ultimate height attained was within a foot of the great inundation. During the last five days, the waters have as gradually and constantly receded, leaving us n the confident assurance that all danger from this source is past, now and forever. The almost unhoped for and perfect success which has attended the limited efforts alone permitted by the suddenness of the occasion, has effected this conviction, of the utmost importance to the growth and prospects of our city. In thin connection, we commend the following report of Mr. Cooto to the careful attention of our citizens. Sacramento City, March 14th, 1850. To the Hon. President and Council of Sacramento City: Gentlemen— ln conformity with an order of your Hon. body, and under the direction of the Commi...

From Trinidad Hay. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 April 1850

From Trinidad Hay. The schooners Sierra Nevada, James R. Whiting and Isabel, returned early last week. The j schooner Paragon is reported a total wreck at j Point St. George. The brig Cameo had landed her passengers there and was loading with piles for return cargo. The Jacob M. Ryerson, with some of i the passengers from the Cameo and Paragon, had entered a river about 15 miles north of Cape Men- , docina, but owing to the heavy surf, was unable to ! get out again. The schooner (Jen. Morgan, barks ; ! Ma 1 lory and Gaitndo were in the bay discharging. The latter has returned, as also the Mallo^v, which brings later news, but not received below in time for publication on Saturday.

Herz. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 April 1850

Herz. The third and final Concert of this great musician was attended by nearly all the elite of Sacramento City | and we were gratified to observe a more appreciative and numerous audience on this occasion than witnessed his previous efforts. The entertainment was varied and the performances of the artist, as usual, soul-stirring and grand. The exquisite execution of the popular air of "The Last Rose of Summer." with the inimitable variations which the master hand of Herz gives birth to, entranced his auditory, and held even the less gifted mind within sound of his music, spell-bound with admiration. Then when 1; faint and fainter still," it at length cea:*ed to vibrate on the ear — was lost in the heavy rumbling of notes premonitory of another burst of bewitching music, the pleasant cadence of his ntw composition stole softly in, and anon we were gliding through the measured strains of our own enrapturing California Polka. As thispi<»ce concluded, a brilliant bouquet of...

First Steamer on the American River. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 22 April 1850

First Steamer on the American River. A company of ladies and gentlemen assembled onboard the Etna, a new steamboat of ten horse power, on Wednesday last, and enjoyed an excursion up the Rio de los Americano? to Norristown, it being on the occasion of opening communication through this channel with the above point. Owing to the machinery propelling for the first time the youthful stranger, on strange waters, there was noticeable- some degree of timidity in its performance, and perhaps it lessened the esteem in which the boat was held against the current of general thoughts— for all on the Etna appeared to think there was no danger of eruption. If the crater was on board, the presence of no many beautiful ladies quite intimidated the fires, and a very pleasant time the party certainly enjoyed, returning about nine o'clock in the evening. The boat is owned byCapt.Gelston, who in person dispensed the ginger pop and refreshments, making himself quite popular, as he always does. A few del...
