The Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 16 August 1849

The Convention. The returns from the various election districts come in very slowly; so much so, that we fear the constitution of the convention can scarcely be ascertained until its assembling. We have no definite information from the mining region; but such as is reliable we give in to-day's sheet. The delegates elect, as far as known, are as follows : SAN FRANCISCO. Regular. Supernumeraries. Edw. Gilbert, | W. D. M. Howard, Myron Norton, | Francis J. Lippitt, Wm. M. Gwin, | A. J. Ellis, Joseph Hobson, | Francisco Sanchez, Wm. M. Steuart, | Rodman M. Price. PUEBLO DE SAN JOSE. Joseph Aram, | Pedro Sansevain, K. H. Dimmick, | Julian Hanks, J. D. Hoppe, | A. M. Pico, Antonio M. Pico, Elam Brown. MONTEREY. H. Wager Halleck, Thomas O. Larkin, Lewis S.

City Ma tiers. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 16 August 1849

City Matters. The Weather. — The weather, for the last two weeks, may be said to have been from " fair to middling." Although we are in the midst of summer, a fire in the parlor stove every morning and evening, has been found agreeable to most citizens, especially to the unacclimated. Some of the tyros have even predicted rain in consequence of the dense fog which hides the sun till ten o'clock every day. and the clerk of the weather has politely informed us that such persons will soon be ar-raign-ed for their temerity. The Public Health. — The general health of the 5,000 inhabitants of San Francisco, is good. Recently some deaths have occurred from diarrhoea and dysentery, and many are now suffering from one or the other of these diseases; but the sickness is abating. Some solicitude is felt in regard to cholera and ship fever; but the general opinion is that neither of these diseases can spread in such a climate as this, although it is highly probable that nine out of ten cases wo...

The survey has been made by Capt. Hammond, U. S. A., and Wm. Norris, Esq.; the maps are completed and may be seen at the office of S. S. Howison, in the building of the subscriber at Stockon.

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