[From the Juurnal of Commerce, 25th inst] [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 1 May 1850

[From the Juurnal of Commerce, 25th inst] "Humboldt HARBOR." — We have received from Captain Ottinger, of the U. S. Revenue Marine Service, a full and deeply interesting report of his explorations in search of a harbor northward of this point, and it is with regret that we abridge a line of his account, knowing well its value to every navigator who may sail upon the Pacific coast between here and Trinidad Bay. To be brief, then, Capt. Douglass Ottinger has discovered, entered, and located claims upon one of the most beautiful and land-locked bays upon the Upper coast. After a close scrutiny of the coast, running sometimes within a quarter of a mile of the breakers, with the coast wrapped in fog so thick that frequently the main land could not be seen half a mile distant, they finally, on the 29th of March, discovered the entrance to a large bay, in latitude 40 degrees 45 minutes, having seven fathoms depth of water an eighth of a mile outside of the out breakers. The fog became so t...

Th«« Union. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 3 May 1850

Th«« Union. • One of the best articles on the subject which now excites such vita) interest throughout our confederacy, is the following, from the N. O. Bee : It is a nmxim of profound significance, that 11 fools rush in where angels fear to tread," and the experience of mankind in questions of portentous magnitude, affecting whole communities, affords a thousand practical illustrations of its truth. Demagogues and fanatics, weak minded and passionate mm, prate glibly and flippantly of disunion ; profess thetast Ivns ready for the experiment ; and undertake coolly to demonstrate by mathematical calculation, how much better off we might be, with a confederacy shivered into fragments. The sage and the patriot, happy in our present glorious bond of union ; proud of our position among the powers of the earth as a free and a mighty people ; beholding with exultation our daily progress in all the elements of national strength, and social and political aggrandisement, seek not to penetrate...

Progr«M of Sacramento. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 3 May 1850

Progr«M of Sacramento. By a reference to the report of the proceedings of the Common Council in another column, it will be scon that a Committee is appointed to seloct I suitable person to make a final survey and prepare estimates for the great work which our citizens so unanimously sustained and approved by their vote on the 29th alt. There will be no re luxation henceforth in the active prosecution of the Levee to its completion. It will surprise our transmontano neighbors, and give them an exalted idea of the wealth and resources of this young City, toobscrvo tin- pliant grace with which she accommodates herself to the heavy exigencies of the times. An extraordinary tax of $250,000 for immediate local application is here most amiably wclcomod, in addition to the regular municipal demands of $100,000. — Beside this there is the State poll tax of $5 to every inhabitant between tlio years of twentyone and sixty, a militia tax of two dollar?, and a levy of fifty cents per hundred dol...

Signs of tlio Time*. In the Western piper- recoivod by the last : mail, we find the subject of the spring immigration already a prominent topic of discussion. — Mules and cattle have been bought up an I fattened during the winter, and now command the most exorbitant prices where they can bo had at all. The Editors are some of them inclined to deprccato the California fever, and u-&amp;lt;e the customary arguments of danger, exposure to disease, and the other bugbears, (for such they will prove now, compared to their former significance) to doter the- rush which promises to leave many of them almost without a subscriber We find others taking the advance themselves in the movement and using their press to forward and complete all tho arrangements, prior to shipping it off and starting themselves to meet it.

The American Mind. Mr. Whipple, the distinguished critic and reviewer, in a lecture bason the Mercantile Library Association, it thus reported by the N. Y. Tribune : Mr. Whipple introduced his subject by some intelligent remarks on the connexion between national character and the great men of i nation, and then proposed the questions : lias there been an American Mind? and if so, What are its characteristics ? In answering these questions, Mr. W. said that he did not intend to call forth the strains of the national chanticleer, or to arouse the ashes of the Pilgrim Fathers from their slumbers, thus encroaching on the privileges of the Fourth of July orator. lie would not say that there was an American National Mind in the sense in which that assertion could be predicated of England or of Greece ; but there is no doubt a national life, instinct with an active energy, and tending to decided and strongly-marked issues. The basis of this is the genuine AngloSaxon force, which melts into...
