Married On Wednesday evening, 15th inst, by the Rev. Mr. Moorehouse, Wm. C. Young, Esq., to Miss Lucy A. Barnes, all resident of Sacramento City. The nuptial festivities assembled in pleasant participation of the happy event, a gay and fashionable company, at the delightfully snug residence of the bridegroom, and the hours of evening glided onward in the delicious harmony of mirth and music. The queenly figure of the youthful and beauteous bride, the gallant bearing of the happy groom, drew forth from many a soul-speaking eye and many a warm lip the fervor of admiration, as side by side, supported, she by a single bridesmaid of rare intellect and eloquent beauty — he by a groomsman of becoming mien, all simply but elegantly attired, they stood before the hymenial altar and plighted vows to cherish through life unbroken love.

Front the Sandwich I«iuu<l«. [Newspaper Article] — Placer Times — 17 May 1850

Front the Sandwich I«iuu&amp;lt;l«. We have received a Honolulu paper of March last. It is about as dry and uninteresting as the " book of nature " when it " getteth short of leaves." The city of Honolulu must be a model of a stupid place. The newspapers feel it to be, and the editors look coastward with rankling envy of the prize which republican gold has snatched from monarchial crown brilliants. But the Islands will have a place in the future history of Pacific commerce, and be for all indebted to young California. — We shall derive West Indian produce from these contingent specks of cultivable and populous lands, and enrich Howaii beyond her hopes even in the palmy days of her whale fisher's rendezvous. So the papers need not conceal the fact of California's greatness from their readers, but should try to hide those lean and hungry looks" from foreign gaze. Here is all we could find readable in the paper received : Disaster at Sea. — The brig TttSOar, bound from Boston to Sa...
