[From the New York Tribune March '> J Affair* on Ilic Atlantic Side. lion T. Butler King's Report on California has just been presented to the President, and probably will be soon transmitted to Congress. It is a voluminous document and embodies much valuable information regarding the population, resources, and capacities of the new Pacific State. Mr. King estimates the present population of the country at 120,--000; which will bo augmented on the Ist of May by immigration) to about 200,000. He represents the agriculturaF capacities of the State as far beyond any previous computation; considers that the region is especially adapcd to Wool-growing, and that the future value of the vineyards will undoubtedly be very great. The Gold region is described as extending 500 } or 600 miles from South to North, and 10 to 60 miles from East to West — rising gradually in an inclined plain from the Sacramento Valley to an elevation of 4,000 feet. Mr. King examined twelve of the rivers...

Death off John €. Calhonit. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 10 May 1850

Death off John €. Calhonit. [Special Telegraphic Dispatch of N. Y. Herald.] Washington, March 31, iB6O. It is my melancholy duty to inform you that the Hon. John C. Calhoun, of South Carolina, departed this life at a quarter past seven o'clock this morning. The sad event has cast a gloom over the capital, and is the topic of conversation and universal regret to-day among our citizens. During the whole of yesterday, it was evident to those who had access to the sick chamber that the lamp of life was nearly extinguished, and that if within a few hours a change did not take place for the better, his demise might be confidently expected. Indeed, he seemed conscious himself that his mortal career was near a close. t At about 10 o'clock last night, Mr. Vcnablo of North Carolina, read to him some letters which were addressed to Mr. Calhoun by persons at a distance, and which reached Washington by that day's mail. Shortly afterward ho addressed Mr. Joseph A. Scoville, who was with him from ...

Early River Navigation. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 13 May 1850

Early River Navigation. It was erroneously stated in an article appearing in the columns of our cotemporary of this City a few days since, that "to Capt. Gelston (merchant of Sacramento) belongs the credit of having sailed the first vessel of heavy tonnage up the Rio Sacramento." We claim to know something about the early navigation of this river — can attest the truth of our neighbor's observations about credit due the enterprising Captain for the introduction of steam on the Rio de los Americanos, and as for first sailing vessels on the Sacramento, the Transcript is as "right as a trivet"—only it isn't! The first sea-going vessel on the waters of the Sacramento, plied between the present site of this city and what was then Yuba Buena, (now San Francisco) over four years ago. A Russian schooner it was, owned by Capt. Sutter, and known as the Sacramento, navigated by Digger Indians, and employed to transport wheat, hides and tallow from Sutter's Fort (New Helvetia) to the Bays. It w...

We understand the writer in conclusion to allude to a matter which has already been broached, but not yet received the attention which its important will soon demand. A slough commences a few miles up the American River extending along the base of tho high lands in the rear of this City almost to the junction with the Sacramento a short distance below it. With no considerable additional expenditure in connection with the required levee, and furnishing, at the same time, the miterial for its construction, a canal could be opened through this natural channel, which, besides affording an outlet for the waters of the American in their highest and threatening stages, and being availed for purposes of navigation and irrigation, which latter is very soon to become an important considera...
