Gathered Flowers. [Collected for the Sacramento Transcript.] BY THRENDOS. THE PEASANT'S SERENADE TO HIS MISTRESS. Oh ! pretty is the night, love, and brightly gleam the stars, IPhe gently- whisp'ring zephyrs seem soitly-toned guitars ; The notes of yonder cascade fall sweetly on the ear, — Come, walk along with me, love, the music let us hear. Exquisite is the sceiie, love, as, peerless in the sky, Is Venus, robed in beauty, to greet a lover's eye ; The glow-worm faintly shining, the night-bird on the wing, — Oh! come, and let us walk, love, while evening warblers sing. The sombre curtain's spread, love, o'er Nature's calm repose, The night is shedding tear-drops on every bloomrose ; The hour is most inviting, and sings the galeThen come, and let us walk, love, and listen to her tale. The silver moonbeams dance, love, upon the rippling stream, The water-nymphs are playing with every darting beam ; The ring-dove hushed in slumber, and murm'ring rests the bee — Come, ramble now with m...
THE TWO SEXES [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 8 April 1850
THE TWO SEXES BY MRS. NORTON. When Adam turned from Eden's gate, His soul in sullen musing slept ; He brooded o'er his future fate — While Eve, poor Eve, looked back and wept. Anecdote. —In a note to his life of Chief Justice Mansfield, Lord Campbell tells us that he once heard a judge at Stafford sentencing a prisoner convicted of uttering a forged one-pound note, when after having pointed out to him the enormity of the offence, and exhorted him to prepare for another world, the dignitary thus concluded : " And I trust that, through the merits and mediation of our blessed Redeemer, you may there experience that mercy which a due regard to the credit of the paper currency of the country forbids you to hope for here."

Message of Mayor Bigelow. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 10 April 1850
Message of Mayor Bigelow. To the Honorable the President and Council of Sacramento City : Gentlemen : In 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 revk enue for the completion of the work. f The estimated amount of material required for the entire work, ascertained by the late survey of the City Engineer, is about 160,000 cubic yar...
The Half Century Question. I [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 10 April 1850
The Half Century Question. I ■'• It seems to be as plain as the 1 nose on your face, that the 31st of December, year one, closed the year one. If this is the case, the,3lst of December, 50 A. D,, closed the first half century. Then the present half : century will not be closed until 12 o'clock 1 on ; the 31st of next December. ' The point would be decided if this question can be answered : How old would Christ be at, the present t me provided he was alive ? We say a man •is twenty-five &gt;y ears old ■ during the time that ' his twenty-sixth year is elapsing. So it might be said that Christ would be 1849 years old during the time that the 1850 th year is i assing. If this is so, then was the first half of the present century closed os the 31st of December, 1849. : -; i Here is the point upon which the question hinges :J: J When was it proper to say the year ° one :" — from the birth of Christ up to the twelfth month . after that ; period, or not until the twelfth ; month had...
Mayor's Message. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 10 April 1850
Mayor's Message. The message of Mayor Bigelow to the 1 Common Council of our city, will be found 1 in full on the first page of this day's issue.— ' It is a document of deep interest to every ( citizen of Sacramento, and would amply repay perusal to any one who has her good at ' heart. It is a business-like paper, and the ! measures it proposes" are sound. It is what ' a message should be. There is no waste of ; words for theatrical effect ; it enters with no flourish of figure or pomp of language, but it commences forthwith in medias res. We are glad to see that the Mayor is thus in earnest. It will meet with a ready response, we doubt not, from the Comioon Council, arid the hearty co-operations of our citizens will be found upon its side. The first subject which the Mayor takes up is the levee. This is one of paramount importance, and the consideration of it occupies nearly one half of the message. The immediate construction of such a work is urged with concise force ; and now tha...
Important Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — Sacramento Transcript — 10 April 1850
Important Discovery. A plant has just been discovered by Dr. J. B. Garland, of Virginia, now residing in Ma•ysville, remarkable properties of which are mchasto render the discovery quite imporunt. A specimen of it is now lying on our ;able, having been sent to us for inspection :y Drs. Wydown &amp; Watts. It is represented :o be a vegetable which, when boiled with jork or bacon, iR in point of flavor little, if my, inferior to the celebrated turnip green. Repeated trials of it demonstrate its nutri;ive and healthy properties. Dr. Garland las no doubL of its beneficial effects as an ar:icle of diet in the treatment and prevention Df cases of scurvy, as he feels confident of ts anti-scorbutic properties. If the Doctor's views be correct, the discovery is not only an important one, but has been made very opportunely, for the miners, who are so much in need of vegetable diet. The above mentioned plant may be seen and sxamined at the drug store of Messrs. Wydown and Watts, on the...
