New Route to .Vcw Meztco and California – [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 16 June 1849

New Route to New Mezico and California— The Fort Smith (Ark.). Herald contains letters from General Arbuckle and Major Bonneville, both well acquainted with the prairies, recommending the Arkansas route to New Mexico as being shorter and better than the Missouri one. They both urge Fort Smith as * point of departure, and the valley of the Canadian as the path ; but Major Bonneville advocates the route by the south bank of the North Fork, while General Arbuckle prefers the south bank of the South Branch. Gen. A.'s scheme is, from Fort Smith to La Joya, on the Rio Grande, 630— or at the utmost, 680 miles ; La Joya being near the usual place of departure on the Rio Grande for California, by the route of the Gila River. — This is one of the projected great railroad routes to the Pacific, and has, indeed, the merit of being one of the shortest ones. — lnd. Journal. For California: —A. Coquilland, of South Bend, in this State, proposes raking a company of emigrants to California, for $150...

Suspension Bridge across the Mississippi — The subscribers to the Placer Times are informed that the temporary discontinuance of the paper is owing to the absence of the Editor, Mr. E. C. Kemble, who left in ill health. Several persons, anxious that the paper should be continued until the time when its direction should be assumed by an editor, soon expected to arrive from San Francisco, have coutributed their endeavors to fill the sheet - - with such matter as they deem most interesting to the subscribers. Should they fail in giving satisfaction, the subscribers will please excuse the failure, upon the ground that neither of the volunteers have attempted the like before.

PROCLAMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 23 June 1849

PROCLAMATION. To the People of California. Congress having failed at its recent session to provide a new government for this country to replace that which existed on the annexation of California to the United States, the undersigned would call attention to the means which he deems best calculated to avoid the embarrassments of our present position. The undersigned, in accordance with instructions from the Secretary of War, has assumed the administration of civil affairs in California, not as military Governor, but as the executive of the existing civil government in the absence of a properly appointed civil Governor, the commanding officer of the Department, is, by the laws of California, ex officio civil Governor of the country, and the instructions from Washington were based on the provisions of these laws. This subject has been misrepresented or at least misconceived and currency given to the impression that the government of the country is still military. Such is not the fact. T...

We think also that there is perfect unanimity of opinion in regard to the necessity of some law, and some authority to protect the rights that are every day invaded, and to punish the outrages that are every day committed in our land Are we to devise a remedy for this state of things, or shall we continue as we are until wrong shall quote prescription in its favor, and crime shall be justified by custom ? Every one knows and feels that we have no regularly constituted legal government No government which has a hold on the affections or patriotism of the people ; no government which the sense of the people accredits or recognizes.
