ALTA C ALIFORN lA. I [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 23 August 1849

ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY, AUG. 23, 1849. We issue a supplement to-day which contains news received from abroad per Panama. Our columns are glutted with business matter for which encroachment upon other departments we can but pray the indulgence of the reader, promising to "work her free" in due time. DEATH BY SHOOTING. — On Monday the 20th instant, a man was found two miles west of this place, extended upon the ground by the road side, insensible and bleeding copiously from a wound in the back part of the head. He was at once conveyed into town, and his injuries examined which were pronounced mortal, and the result of a gun or pistol shot. Two balls had evidently entered and lodged in the head. On the following morning he breathed his last, and scarcely a doubt exists that the unfortunate man was murdered. His name was Petit, and he is said to have possessed money. A man named Joaeph Danlei has been arrested and committed, who in believed to have been a room mate of ...

THE POST OFFICE. — We do not wish or intend to complain of a public officer, but we nevertheless would call the attention of the new Postmaster to the fact, that more system must be introduced into his office. The public interest requires it, and we have no doubt that so soon as possible this matter will be attended to by the new incumbent. While on this subject we may as well say that we deprecate the proposed removal of the office. If thus moved, it will fail to accommodate the majority of our citizens, and will thus defeat one of the first ob...

SPEECH OF MR. BENTON, OF MISSOURI, On the Adjudication of Land Titles, and Sale of Gold Mines in New Mexico and California. DELVERED IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, JANUARY 15, 1849. On motion of Mr. Benton, the Senate resumed the consideration of the bill for ascertaining claims and titles of land within the Territory of California and New Mexico; to grant donation rights, and to provide for the survey of the lands therein, and for the sale of the gold mines; which was under discussion on Friday last, and informally passed over. Mr. BENTON — As I stated to the Senate on Friday, I am opposed to the whole scheme or plan contained in the bill which is now before the Senate; and I propose to substitute for it a plan founded on an entirely different principle.

FUNERAL OBSEQUIES OF EX-PRESIDENT POLK. — The death of Ex-President Polk was announced in this city early last week, and the usual demonstrations of public grief observed. But distinct from the drooping halfmasted emblems of national calamity, and the booming notes of stern martial sorrow, there was a sadness which pervaded the public mind upon the receipt of these mournful tidings, far more impressive than the affliction as betokened by either lowering banner or dismal minute-gun. It was the language of distress speaking from the hearts of an affectionate and grateful people, and proving that even in distant ...

Placer lntelligence. SUCCESSFUL GOLD DIGGING. — Dr H. Van Dyke, a member of the North Fork Dam and Mining Association, which company has recently completed a lateral canal at Beal's Bar, a little above the juncture of the North Fork with the Rio Americano, has just returned from their scene of operations. The work of drainage had been completed only three days before he left, and though the company labored under many disadvantages, they had raised in this short time over $15,000. This association is composed of about thirty hard working men, and from the result of the few days' labor since drainage, and the fine prospects of continued success, they confidently count upon a yield of about ten ounces per diem, each man, during the next and succeeding month. In confirmation of these statements we are at liberty to refer the reader to Mr. R. Van Dyke of the house of Bleecker, Van Dyke and Belden, of this place, where specimens of the gold thus obtained may be seen. THE MINES. — We have ...
