"WESTWARD THE STAR OF EMPIRE TAKES IT'S WAY" [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 April 1850

"WESTWARD THE STAR OF EMPIRE TAKES IT'S WAY" —Although westward the star of empire, with the march of improvement, is supposed to take its eternal way, there may nevertheless be reasonably expected a little deviation of the well established rule under the circumstances which govern cases in this sundown land of fame and fortune. Where settlement commences on the extreme western verge of this virgin soil, quite confidently may we count upon the penetration of the country and extension to the north and south, aye—antipodal to the above defined migratory principle—to the *east*, if golden developements are made of pioneer improvements and Yankee institutions. This is a far west part and parcel of the glorious confederacy which has grown up under the wand of a magician more potent than the olden east ever saw. More than the philosop er's st"ne could achieve has boon • wrought here, and touch ing tho Bpringsof till the wonders we have seen and are yet to pc the inI sidubus charmer, gold,...

Tbeatrical. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 April 1850

Tbeatrical. Mrs. Kirov s performances, both in play an I farce, entitle her to a very high rank in her profession. With many, the fact that she is hero, in California, unheralded by Co itinental report, (we mean American.) and with none of the app iances of the starring pystein to advance and make prominent her cairns, may avail somewhat to retard their recognition; Like merit, however, in every other sphere of li o and occupation, it i even mure rare in this of ultimately attaining its just estimate and reward. There is no lack of full and attentive audience?, who attest to ft c general excellencies of the performances at the Tehama, and as a Manageress Mrs Kirby has well earned that highest Californian testimony to her worth! an ample remuneration for her efforts. \s an a ti-'t. to whom the brea h of fame i* as dear aa the bre mI of life, she nmy appear to lanuish for that fostering care and del cate appreciation which gallantry and good taste will never long deny to one, who. in ...

t 2 Viiroati. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 April 1850

t 2 Viiroati. From the recollections of a hasty rcconnoisancj of our exchanges, we gather the following: Miss i ashman, at tlu St Charles, New Orleans, in her great roes of Meg Mcr ilies and Quocn Catharine, attracting crowds and universal admiration. Her Romeo is ranked by the critics there as perfect. Miss Oavenpart, at the American, with Jainicson, performing in the "Wife,"' tho li ßoman Father." &c. with the same success tint has attended her tour throughout the States, in the course of which she has already made a small fortune. Chanfrau, the immortal " Mose,". is also ling th winter in the South. The Histrionic- S|»U continue their weekly subscription nights in their beautiful theatre on Naialee street, graced by the attendance of tho fashion and taste ot the City, while their public performances are nnij) y patronised, and servo to defray nil extraordinary expenses. Their Theatre was built more than ■ year since at an expense of $10,000, furnished by yearly and li...

City Affair*. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 April 1850

City Affairs. The water has fallen so rapidly of late, that it is now deemed beneath notice. A row occurred at the Humboldt on Monday, wherein a man was dangerously stabbed in the head. It arose over a gaming table, and came near rosa ting fatally. Another quarrel was got up at the bar on the same day, in which one of those engaged was horribly disfigured in the face. The streets quite abound with ladies, notwithstanding the difficulty of getting about. The things must be had tor Thun ay evening. The numerous stores lately erected down the Levee are nearly all tenanted, and fast filling up with choice stocks of goods, — two new auction houses in full blast, and another getting ready. The admirable- report of Mr. Strong, from the Committee on th ■ ruction of the Levee, appeared yesterday. It was universa ly read, as its merits demand, and well de»erves the commendation bestoweJ by the Transcript. The eat services of our Chief Magistrate, in the late juncture of affairs, are justly al...

A Trip up 1 Yatltcr River. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 April 1850

A Trip up Feather River. Quick passage of the Gov. Dana — Fast Boats and Fast Towns — New Stores — Sporting Intelligence -Trinity Route Vir Diggings on Feather River — Judge Field — the El Dorado — Accident in Suisun Bay — Linda and Frcdonia. The beautiful steamer Gov, Dana made her first trip from Sacramento, up, on Tuesday of last week. Leaving at half-past nine, in two hours and three-quarters we were at Fremont, and a little more than an Hour brought us to Nicolaus. Here, nt the shortest notice, Mr. Eberhardt served up dinner in that first rate style, which has already extended far and wide the reputation of his hotel. The Dana made the passage through to Marysville in something less than eight hours, running time, undoubtedly the shortest on record. She is indeed in all respects, a fast boat — built by Gen. Veazie about a year since, to ply on the Penobscot, in opposition to a monopoly, which had granted them by the Legislature, the exclusive privilege of navigating that river;...

[For the Placer Times ] [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 24 April 1850

[For the Placer Times ] Mr. Editor. — It is understood that the first church in Sacramento, consisting of Congregationalists and Presbyterians, ■ about to make an effort to raise funds for the purpose of erecting a chapel for the use of such as desire to worship with them. Such a building is much needed. There is but one church building ;it present in our city. lor the credit of our city several places of worship ought speedily to be opened — where every body mighi ;>•• sure <»t finding regular public services, [t is very much gained if such aplace is publicly known a- a church or chapel. Such a building might be of service ;ilm>, as a place lor holding evening meet and for the delivery of Lecture- on Blich Bttbjects as would interest and instruct our growing population. On every account, the movement 1- a desirable one. The enterprise is undertaken in good faith, and will, it is hoped, meet with the cordial approbation of all our citizens. The circu...
