PASSAGE BETWEEN FOOTE AND BENTON. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 13 May 1850

PASSAGE BETWEEN FOOTE AND BENTON. Mr. ' Bentoo, as the friend of California, gave notice to those who designed her admission, that they must stand by her. Califbrnb was entitled to the consideration of the Senate, and her right was not to be postponed. Her bill M iirst reported, and as her friend he gave notice that from this time henceforth he intended to have the subject pressed and urged upon the Senate until it was definitely acted upon. He objected to giving the territorial bill precedence. The State was entitled to the precedence in every respect. She had the right to act independently on the coast of the Pacific. She is not able to borrow a dollar to carry on her government, because of her anomalous position.
