The Citizens* Circular. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 15 April 1851
The Citizens* Circular. [The following Address was issued yesterday evening by the citizens. At ten o'clock, nearly 1000 signatures were attached to it.] To the Citizens of Sacramento City: We, the undersigned, Citizens of Sacramento City, have beheld with alarm the growing indications of rank and monstrous Crime in our Community. We had hoped that the Summary Punishment which has already been inflicted upon a number of the villains who have been detected in Crime would admonish the balance, and free us from any further inroads upon our Laws, our Rights, and our Lives. But it seems that wo have been disappointed in our hopes, and that nothing but the severest and extreme operation of force and summary power can arrest these scoundrels in their abandoned fondness for crime. We therefore, having heard that they design an attack upon the various Editors of the city, and in their own language "to make a clean sweep of them," do hereby pledge ourselves to sustain every paper in Sacrament...

For the Daily Union. Sacramento City, April 13. If I ever coveted any object on earth, it has been an affectionate brother; and strange has been the destiny that has encircled me, and those connected by that tie. When I was quite a child, I was aroused from slumber to see a loved brother breathe his last. How well I remember it; for this was the first time I had looked upon death — strange mystery to me. Soon after this, my father moved to the "Sunny South,"' leaving my eldest brother behind. When we again met he was verging to manhood. We had met a few times to know and love each other, and I to feel that his protecting arm would soon be my greatest blessing, when a messenger came to my uncle's, then my home, stating that he too was dying. My sister and I stood by his bed in time to see his last struggle with the tyrant, who heeds not the tears wrung from the hearts of idolizing sisters. — My God, why was it not myself in his stead? Another brother grew up. He was cold, austere and...

rli c Rambler. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Daily Union — 15 April 1851
rli c Rambler. &gt;o. in. In my present communication I shall give you a rather singular "recollection,' 1 but what actually occurred tmdex my own observation. I had witnessed cases of apparent loro among the building trees and blossoming flowers ; but never until the instance I am about to relate, between the frog and a winged and feathered tribe. The frog I speak of was an old and intimate friend of mine, with whom 1 became acquainted in my rambles about neighboring woods and fields during the early part of my college days. He was a very gentlemanly frog indeed, perhaps the most remarkable frog of the ago. lie had. it is true, none of those glaring and striking qualities that blind and dazzle with their brightness; he was rather distinguished for Bedativeness and dignfof of demeanor, and that graceful amenity of deportment that intimates high extraction. He lived among his brethren, but abi.ve them. There was no pride in his look, and yet he admitted none into terms of per...
