The MEDICAIi FACULTY throughout the Union, have acknowledged this to be 
chemical process, it has been proved to possess ALTERNATIVE, TONIC AND ANTI-DYS- 
PTIC PROPERTIES, superior to those found in any other medicinal beverage j-et discovered. 
'he Medical Faculty of the State of New York prescribe it in almost every case for debility and 
itude, owing to its soothing effects on the system, and the absence of aU injurious minerals, 
micals or acids. 

" 'he Turner Brothers have in their possession numerous certificates of its sanitive properties, 
a the most eminent Medical Men in the United States, who have witnessed its effects on the 
ents, where it has been admini.stered in their extensive practice. 

T HAS BEEN ANALYZED by the most eminent Chemists of New York City and Buf- 
, where the Turner Brothers manufacture dailj' thousands of gallons, and so popular has it be- 
le, that they can hardly supply the demand, even when their stiUs are kept in operation day 
niglit. This "Wine is acknowledged at the East to be the best Restorative noTO' in use, 
?re general prostration of the system exists, or derangement of the functions of the digestive 
ans, as it braces the nerves anew, re-coats the stomach, and creates an appetite, when other 
ics have failed. This excellent Wine is pleasant to the taste, and the strictest advocate of 
perance cannot discover any intoxicating quality in it. It is wholly free from all substances 
; are injurious to health, but, on the contrary, its effects on the system of either invalids or per- 
3 in robust health, are of the most beneficial description.

ch, Turner Brothers have had engraved on a steel plate, a splendid new label, which is copy-righted and can- 
be counterfeited or imitated, without an infraction of the copy-right law. This label has a correct portrait of 
Turner Brothers, six in number, and no bottle that has not this label will contain the genuine Ginger "Wine, 
nprinciplod men in this city have partially counterfeited the label lately used by the Turner Brothers, and

Office Continental Insurance Co., 

New York, July 1, 1856. \ 

This Company will hereafter give the holders of its policies the ri^bt to participate in the profits of the business 
of tlie Company. The extent of tliis participation will appear from tho following, which is an extract from that 
portion of the policy referrin? to the subject : 

" First. — Within one month after the expiration of each fiscal year, the profits of the business for the year shall 
be ascertained, in order to ilivifle and distribute the same to the Company and policy holders according to their 
respective interests therein. The^e profits shall be determined in the following manner: 

Interest at the rate of seven per cent, per annum upon the capital ($.'5l')0,00tl) and upon whatever amount of 
surplus, not belonging to or set apart for policy or scrip-holders, shall remain undivided, shall be tirst retained and 
set as the property of the Company, the balance of interest received or accrued during the year on loans, in- 
cludins tlie discounts ini losses paid before maturity, and the amount of premiums earned during such year, shall 
then be ascertained, ami the sum of these shall be considered the gross receipts. 

The gener al expenses, taxes, losses, anrl the interest paid or payable to scrip holders, and all other contingent 
charges and liabilities shall be considered gross expenses; the gross expenses being deducted from the gross re- 
ceipt, the balance shall be considered the profits of the t>usiness for the year, and this estimate shall be binding 
and conclusive upon all parties entitled to participate in said profits. 

Second. — Tlire^-fourOm of the balance ot protif-s so ascertained, shall be divided to policy lu)lders^ and scrip 
shall be issued to them for such sums as they shall be respectively entitled to in proportion to the amount of pre- 
mium paid by each, which scrip shall be entitled to such interest, not exceeding six per cent, annually, as in the 
judgment of the Board of Directors, the business of each year shall warrant ; but no scrip shall be issued for any 
fractional excess over even fives of dollars, bxit scrip may be issued for three dollars, or four dollars, in case the 
amount to whicha policy holder shall be entitled, shall equal one of these sums, and be less than five dollars. 

PoUKTH. — The scrip shall be redeemable as follows: whenever tne fund represented by said scrip shall exceed 
Five Hundred Thousand Dollars, the Board of Directors shall thereafter apply the excess of ^aid fund annually 
towards the redemption of such scrip, commencing with the earliest in date. Notice of the redemption of tho 
scrip shall tie given for ten days in two daily newspapers, published in the city of New York, and no interest shall 
be payable on such scrip after the time mentione<l in said notice lor the redemption thereof 

JviFTH. — By holders of policies is intended not only the party in whose name the policy is issued, but also the 
party to whom the same is assigned, or to whom loss is made payable, and the scrip for the amount to which the 
premium paid entitles the holder, may be issued to either, at the option of the Company." 

The Cai)ital of the Company is $ol)(),00rt, which, with the surplus, is invested principally in Bonds and Mortgages 
upon Eeal Estate worth more than twice the aggregate loans. The plan now adopted is designed to give a gradual 
and permanent increase in the security alTorded to customers.

Entered according to Act of Congress, in the Tear of our Lord eighteen hundred and fifty-sis, 


In the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the Northern District of the State of California. 


I»Il E F A.T O R Y. 

The compiler considers it due to himself and respectful to the public of 
San Francisco, to say a few words explanatory and apologetic, by way of 
preface, on the appearance of Colville's San Francisco Directory and 

Having had considerable experience in this branch of business, the com- 
piler, with slight hesitation, complied with the wish of many personal 
friends, among the merchants of 'this city, who declared that a really 
complete Directory of San Francisco was very much needed, and being 
favorably impressed with his capacity for the work, urged him to under- 
take it. But, impelled by a higher ambition than the pubhcation of a mere 
Directory, and desirous of establishing an enterprise of a permanent char- 
acter, by laying the foundation of an annual commensurate with the present 
importance and prospective greatness of the metropolis of the Pacific, he 
proposed that his book should contain, not only the names and residences 
of the citizens, with the ordinary data usually included in such registers, 
but that it should also contain, arranged in a concise and systematic man- 
ner, a brief review of the history of the city, short biographical notices and 
sketches of its institutions, enterprises, etc., by which, so to speak, a picture 
would be presented, reminding the early citizen of almost forgotten remin- 
iscences, and interesting him in present progress, while the new-comer 
could, within a reasonable space, possess himself of the important features 
of the past and present of San Francisco. 

How nearly he has realized his conception in this work must be deter- 
mined by his jDatrons — but he has fallen short of his own desires, and very 
far short of what he hopes to make of its successors; he can, however, 
conscientiously affirm, that he has spared neither labor nor expense in his 
efforts to perfect the work. 


He claims indulgence only to the extent tliat may be justified by the fact 
that, it being a pioneer work of the character in this city, he was without 
the advantage which the present work must be to the future ; to the diffi- 
culty, aggravated by that circumstance, of obtaining from those in posses- 
sion of it, the various and extended information required ; the reluctance 
of many individuals to have their former official relations mentioned ; and, 
finally, to the unexpected announcement of an opposition Directory, which, 
however incomplete or unsatisfactory it might prove, was still formidable 
enough to destroy the hope of reasonable gain on this publication, if suf- 
fered to appear much in advance of it ; hence, the compiler has anticipated, 
by some weeks, the date at which he intended to have his book out, and 
to that extent curtailed the time intended to have been devoted to the com- 
pilation and careful revision of the reading matter. 

In reference to the register of names, no expense has been spared to 
make it complete and accurate ; nevertheless there are many omissions 
arising from the absence of inmates, and refusal, in numerous instances, of 
persons to give their names or the names of others, partners or inmates 
with them, fearing conseq\iences, in reference to taxation or jury duty, if 
their names and residences were given ; or, perhaps, influenced by pride or 
mere caprice to prevent the publication of their residence. 

Notwithstanding these defects, the compiler relies, with implicit confi- 
dence, upon the community who have so generously sustained his work by 
their subscriptions and advertisements, firm in the conviction that the 
material found in its pages is well calculated to convey a clear impression 
of the character and importance of the city, as well as aid its business men 
hx their pursuits, promising the citizens and his patrons that each year 
shall exhibit a progressive improvement in every department of the 

The uniform courtesy which the compiler has received from all those 
holding official position to whom it was necessary to apply for information, 
and their ready acquiesence, attended frequently with great labor in far 
nishing the information sought, would render it invidious here to mention 
individual names ; but these gentlemen are assured of his grateful appre- 
ciation of their kindness, and enjoy the satisfaction of having contributed 
matter useful and important, otherwise inaccessible. 


No PERIOD of life is more interesting to the student of nature, than is that inown 
as childhood. Not even the full tide of success upon which manhood is borne onward 
to the highest honors of professional life, pleases the philosophic observer so much, as 
do the early developments of the child. Mature honors which sit upon the wintry 
brows of age, are pleasant to contemplate as the rewards of a life well spent — but 
all are then more a souvenir than anything else. There is little of earthly hope left 
to be woven with those chaplets. Anticipations have been realized or disappointed. 
Memory is then most of life. And memory is ever sad, if not mournful. But the 
cradle and the nursery are presided over by the smiling goddess, Hope. Nothing of 
a gloomy past casts shadows upon the buds and blossoms of youth. Life is a joyful 
avenir, and we watch its every development as the horticulturist watches the sprouting 
plant, and the pomologist his budding scions. The growth of the soul is quite as 
delightful a study as is its matured expansion. Cities are like human creatures. 
They have their infancy, their childhood, old age. Some have even had their death, 
and have found after long ages of silence, their " Old Mortalities " to move away the 
rubbish from over their graves, brush the dust from their tomb-stones, decipher their 
epitaphs, and give the world their histories. Ninevah, Pompei, Palenque, begun, 
grew, matured, became old, passed away, and were forgotten in their graves of em- 
pires, until Layard, Stephens and others, gathered up their dust and preserved it iv 
their classic urns. All periods of their history, could we have them in the langua- j 
of Gibbon, Hume, or Prescott, would doubtless be of great interest. But it may be 
doubted if during the greatest conquests of Ninevah, the highest triumphs of the 
Roman Empire, or during whatever known glories may have clustered around the lost 
cities of the American continent, anything so pleasant to contemplate would be found, 
as the early signs of future greatness which accompanied their infancy. To see dark 
forests open to the sunlight, barbaric rites and customs fade before civilization's illum- 
ing, to see the clipper supercede the canoe, the white sails of Commerce succeed the 
Indian paddle, and hear the steamer's pattering wheel chronicle its progress where 
only the stealthy course of the savage in midnight silence had previously been ; to 
mark the resolute landing of hale, adventurous, thinking, civilized men on shores 
hitherto trod only by the listless aboriginee, the transient foot of the buccaneer, or the 
visitant mariner in search of wood and water ; to hear the war-whoop give way to the 
saw, hammer and ribbon-stripping plane, and note the cabin follow the original hut, 
the handsome dwelling succeed the squalid hearth-fire of the native ; to observe how 
habitations advance upon the hill sides and out upon the ocean's verge ; lumber, brick 
and stone supplanting sticks, bark and brush ; roofs of smoked hide and sooty willows 


changed for frescoed and pictured walls, wigwams to marble facades, air-bound council 
halls to churches and courts of justice, Indian tracks to busy streets, war-paths to 
avenues of trade, war-dances to Christian worship ; to see the frowning face of nature 
changed by the wooing touch of human industry and intellect into a picture which 
greets the visitor with a smile and lives in the minds of the absent a pleasant memory ; 
to see the triumphs of trade and commerce succeed the trophies of barbarian warfare, 
rustling silk instead of the bloody scalp, and to hear the worship-moving organ w^here 
the death song has so lately been heard — this it is to watch the birth and early growth 
of a city, this peculiarly the fortune of those who have for a few years helped watch 
over the cradle of San Francisco. They have seen all this, and more. They have 
witnessed scenes such as perhaps no other place or time has furnished. For never 
before had human passions been so strongly appealed to, and left so free to act, as here. 
Never before had such a promise of gold been sounded forth to the adventurous of all 
nations and so few restraints placed upon its acquisition. Upon the ear of the fainting 
toiler the cry of measureless gold fell like an annunciation from pitying and blessing 
Heaven. Ancient myths became realities, the caves of romance were open, El Dorado 
was found. The great, deep, universal passion was aroused, the love of wealth had a 
promise of gratification. Gold had taken voice and spoken to the world. This mod- 
ern "Peter the Hermit" had entered upon its mission, and cold were the harangues 
of the enthusiast monk compared with the soul-thrilling appeals which were heard in 
the ringing promises of gold. The appeal found ready and anxious listeners. The 
crusade was inaugurated. A new Jerusalem was to be invested, its golden temple 
despoiled, its golden sepulcher seized, its scoffing inhabitants driven out, its treasures 
appropriated. And with a wild worship of what lay buried in the mines of California, 
not inferior in intensity to that religious enthusiasm which swelled the hearts of the 
knights and retainers of Richard I., Phillip H. and Lewis IX., in swarms they moved 
toward the promised land. Like Jason and his Argonauts, they traversed the waters 
in search of the golden fleece. Like Atilla and his Huns they crossed the plains 
and left no blade of grass where the hoofs of their horses trod. Like the early voy- 
agers, they doubled Cape Horn in crafts little better than hulks. Like Cortes, they 
plunged into the unknown tracts of Mexico ; like Pizarro, they traveled the isthmus, 
and catching a view of the Pacific, stood as did he, gazing 
"Silent upon a peak in Darien." 
From the four quarters of the earth, they came, and the isles of the sea kept not 
back. The five great races were all represented. The Caucassian, traveling on the 
track of empire, and the Mongolian with his face against it ; the Malay, leaving his 
piratic freedom, and the Negro escaping from his bondage, met upon the shores of the 
American Indian, all except him, worshippers at the same shrine, all anxious to bow in 
reverence to the same god, all crusaders in the cause of Mammon, all sinking for a 
time the arrogance of blood and caste and color in the universal passion which sought 
its gratification here. From that "Northern Hive" which had poured its swarms of 
conquering Goths, Huns and Lepidse over the fertile plains and proud cities of classic 
Italy fourteen centuries before, came the plodding, industrious, educated emigrant 
from northern Europe.' The descendants of the countrymen of Brennus, forgot 
Napoleon and the " Barricades," for the time, intent upon storming the rocky ramparts 
which concealed nature's army-chest in the fastnesses of the Sierras. The Scot 


turned his back upon classic Edinburgh and bis native heather ; the disciple of 
St. Patrick forgot the Hill of Howth ; and John Bull exiled himself from the sound 
of Bow Bells — that they might gather gold from beneath the mansanita bushes, and 
by the brink of Califomian rapids. From the climes of Kamehameha, from the 
land of the Cid, from the gold-ribbed realms of Montezuma, and the silver-veined 
hills of the Incas they came ; the tappa-clothed Otaheitan and the fur-clad Russ, the 
Creole dweller by the St. Lawrence, and the Ganges-worshipping Hindostanee, the 
discomfited adherents of Kossuth and Mazzini, battalions of the Guarde Mobile, and 
squads from the rabbles of General Flores, the imported Coolie and the transported 
" Sidney Duck," — all turned their faces toward the land of bright gold and brighter 
liopes — gold often " hard to get and hard to hold" — hopes ever easy to come, and 
readv to leave. Thus was San Francisco peopled by such a human mosaic as never 
before had been wrought into a harmonious society. All creeds were represented. 
The devotee of the Prophet of Mecca side by side with the disciple of the Cross. 
The enthusiastic followers of Budh, Brahma and Vishnu, and the undoubting behever 
in St. Peter's Apostolic succession. Brethren of the creeds of Calvin, Luther and 
Penn, and members of Loyola's Society of Jesus ; fellow-scoffers of Voltaire, and 
fellow-thinkers of Tom Paine. Gold is the great leveler. Gold is the great human 
amalgam. It draws all castes and creeds, religionists and sects into the congregations 
of its worshipers. So was it in the great Hegira for California. The turbaned Turk 
and the pig-tailed Chinese, the red-capped Malay and the "stove-piped" heads of 
whiter nations, joined the train and bowed in its presence. All moral codes and 
immoral, had their representatives. The Fourierite and the Turner, the wifeless 
Shaker, and the well-wived Mormon, the non-resistent and the believer in the code of 
honor, the debt-payer and the spunge, the spendthrift and the miser, the free hand 
and the sordid heart. From all points of the compass, all quarters of the globe, all 
nations and tribes, they converged toward this golden magnet like rays of light, and 
shadows mixed together. 

To those who think, the knowledge of these things must operate as a preventive of 
astonishment that so anomalous a collection of humanity should result for awhile in 
an anomalous state of society, morals, government, politics and trade. For in this 
strange admixture of men, there could be said to exist but one reliable element of 
order. The Anglo-Saxon race formed the nucleus around which the elements of 
religion, morals and enlightened progress were to gather and crystallize. For, passing 
by the earlier history of San Francisco, its native condition, of which little is known 
and nothing remains save some of its hills and the debris of its Indian rancherias ; 
its discovery — probably in 1769 — its settlement at the Mission Dolores in l^'ZB, by 
the Missionaries of St. Francis, and the dreamy life of clergy, laity and neophyte 
which succeeded, the acquisition of California by the United States is the period when 
the history of San Francisco properly commences, and from that time its prevailing 
principle of order, progress and prosperity has been found in the races which peopled 
the eastern side of North America. In properly estimating the condition of the city 
in all its aspects and stages during its short but stirring history, it is necessary to 
understand the character of the population thus assembled, from which ingredients 
the compound of society was to be formed. No chemist's laboratory ever contained 
a greater variety of materials for analysis, admixture, or solution, perhaps never so 


many antagonistic in tteir natures. If their contact has created violent ebulitions, it 
is no more surprising than are those occurring in the crucible, and instead of wondering 
at the seething which accompanied the process, a pleasant surprise at the advances 
made in so few years, is a more just and natural feeling. 

Through untold centuries the site of what is now San Francisco, remained, doubtless, 
with scarce a change, save the slow growth of the shrubs and dwarf oaks which 
maintained severe contest with the dry earth and strong winds, vegetated and decayed ; 
the drifting sand, and the slight incidents and vicissitudes which marked the dream- 
life of the few savage tribes that have left no trace exeept the decomposed shells and 
other matter forming their rancheria relicts. The barren sand hills, the rippling 
waters of the Bay, the stunted shrubs, the flowers giving an early answer to the winter 
rains — these were the history of the spot until men foreign to the soil, but imbued 
with a sublime faith, left home and civilized society and plunged into its desert of 
cold winds, desolate sand, and savage men, to teach civilization to barbarism and 
preach salvation to the heathen. 

Then followed the details of missionary life, self-denial, industry, toil, the policy of 
the statesman, the fortitude of the Christian, the courage of the soldier. Gradually 
the wild man's confidence was won, his listless nature partially aroused, through his 
appetites, his life of laziness and hunger changed to some degree of industry and 
comfort. He was taught to supply food by tilling the soil, and his dim ideas of God 
were used as avenues to reach his soul with some conception of moral and religious 
accountability. All these poor heathen with their teachers, have passed away, leaving 
scarce a trace of their history. But who shall say that in the great hereafter the 
records of what the Franciscan Missionaries and their wild Indian pupils did and tried 
to do, may not shame the grander results of our more modern missionary and political 

Three score years and ten — man's allotted age — thus passed away, a few acres of 
soil being cultivated ; a few Indians through hope of food more than from any 
religious bias or conception of what the gospel meant, demanded and promised, being 
added to the missionary fold ; a few soldiers stationed at the Presidio ; a few ships at 
intervals visiting the harbor for water, hides and tallow ; and few advances in civil- 
ization other than those indicated. For, however admirably calculated the system of 
Catholic Missions may be for drawing into their fold the Indian, teaching him a few 
of the common arts of life, and to incorporate upon his heathenistio traditions of the 
Great Spirit some of the forms of Catholic worship, it has seldom or never progressed 
beyond these partial results, either from inadequacy in the system itself, or, what is 
more likely, owing to the principles of the materials upon which it labored — the 
apathetic, intractive, unprogressive Indian nature. And httle better adapted to aid 
in human progress, than the Indian's, was the nature of a large portion of the Mexican 
population, which first took possession of California, and which at the time of its 
acquisition by the Americans, was the ruling class. They are generally as far 
reduced in character from their ancestors whether Moorish or Castillian, as they are 
in point of time, or as the adobe haciendas and Missions, are inferior to the palaces of 
Grenada or Madrid. Beyond a certain point their power of civilization, progress and 
industry seems incapable of advancing, and that point was reached soon after the 
Missions were established, and enough Indians "lassooed" to supply the priests and 


their adherents with food through their labor. A few men of a difterent class, fine 
types of the grand old Dons, must be acknowledged as exceptions to this. But 
beyond their own ranches, whatever of liberal sentiment they felt fell dead before the 
bigoted policy which pi-evailed. 

And thus the civilization of the Indian amounted to little more than the process 
which breaks the wild ass to the pannier, his conversion only to an engrafting of 
religious forms upon heathen superstitions ; and the progress of the Spanish priests 
and task-masters, rested satisfied with such results. 

This condition of things could not last forever. So fine a bay could not remain 
merely the resort of an occasional whaler, or the clumsy hide drogher. Its waters 
were destined to be thickly dotted with the snowy sails of commerce, to bear up the 
graceful and vast forms of the clipper, and its shores to echo back the broadsides of 
men-of-war. The splendid site of the present city could not forever be left to the 
listless savage, and the stunted civilization of Spanish- American policy. Located and 
formed by nature for a great destiny, on one of the finest bays in the world, looking 
out upon the greatest, richest and most pacific of oceans, in the very track of empire, 
in the healthiest of latitudes, within nine days sail of the Sandwich Islands, within a 
month of China, standing a neighbor to Japan, and the archipelagos of both northern 
and southern Pacific, holding a relation to the commerce and wealth of that vast sea 
such as was held by Tyre toward the Mediterranean, and is now held by London and 
New York in respect to the Atlantic — this place could not fail to attract the shrewd 
attention of the expanding Saxon race, and of falling into their hands as ready to 
receive as mighty to win. 

That time was approaching. Commerce was hastening it. The whaler got some 
idea of the country in his occasional visits. The beaver and otter even, were aiding 
in the work by enticing across the continent the hardy trapper. Some of these 
adventurers when they had crossed the Sierra, felt the touch of the delicious climes, 
and tasted the dreamy life on its western side, either took up their' abode in the 
country, or returned to carry back a good report. Gradually the regenerating race 
began to dot the country, a few even settling in San Francisco. 

From the first settlement of the Presidio, and the Mission Dolores, now embraced 
within the limits of the city and county of San Francisco, for a period of nearly sixty 
years, few incidents occurred worthy of history, beyond the usual events of a mission 
life, or the details of a Mexican military occupation of a country with only a sparce 
population of miserable Indians, and a few foreign residents. What is now San 
Francisco proper, during all this time, had few inhabitants, and was known as Yerba 
Buena, so named from an aromatic plant which abounded among and upon the sand 
hills. The taste which substituted its present name for that which it bore so long, 
which had reason for its application, and which is so much more sonorous and 
agreeable, is at least very questionable. 

In 1816 the British sloop-of-war Racoon, entered the Bay and port. Whaleships 
commenced in 1822 to visit the place for supplies of fresh provisions, and even 
previous to this, some trade had been carried on between the place, Mexico and the 
Sandwich Islands. Men-of-war of various nations anived, but only at intervals, for 
some twenty years after this period, before a regular commercial trade can be said to 
have been fairly established. 


In 1835, however, the port and its trade were considered of sufficient importance 
to deserve the honors and attention of a Harbor Master, and Captain W. A. Richard- 
son, whose decease has so recently been announced, received that appointment. He 
was at that time engaged in the freighting business between difierent points around 
the bay, and the vessels which visited the harbor of Yerba Buena for the purpose of 
obtaining supplies, or freights of hides, tallow, soap and grain. During tliis year he 
erected the first dwelling, or tent, in the place. It was merely a few posts covered 
with the sails of a ship. Thus and then commenced the village which, in fifteen 
years, was destined to astonish the world with its almost fabulous prosperity, its abun- 
dance of gold, its recklessness of trade, of hfe, of business, of speculation ; its harbor 
of a thousand ships and forests of spars; its miraculous growth, sudden fortunes, 
stirring events and electric life. 

We have passed over the minor events of a few years, the earthquake of 1812 and 
of subsequent dates ; the torrents of rain which flooded the land in 1824 and 1825 ; 
the squabbles of the inhabitants ; the trifling excitements, which scarcely broke the 
monotony of the place, — this not being intended as a history, but only a sketch, and 
what most concerns the public, are the data which mark the growth of the Ameri- 
can city. 

In May, 1836, Mr. Jacob P. Leese arrived at Yerba Buena, for the purpose of 
locating and commencing business as one of a firm, his partners to reside at Monterey. 
Finding that an ordinance of Governor Figueroa prevented him from obtaining a 
grant of land within two hundred varas of the beach around the harbor, he returned 
to Monterey, obtained from Governor Chico the necessary authority for selecting such 
a position as he should consider best suited to his purposes, returned to Yerba Buena 
on the first of July succeeding, landed his lumber, and at once selected a hundred 
vara lot, on which the St. Francis Hotel was subsequently built, and by the Fourth 
of July had his house — the first real house of the future city — finished. The 
building of the house, the arrival of Mr. Leese, the " glorious Fourth," the beginning 
of a great city' — perhaps of a great empire — were all celebrated by Messrs. Rich- 
ardson and Leese, and as many others, American and Mexican, as could be assembled, 
by a grand banquet and ball — the first ball on the Fourth of July celebrated publicly 
in the place. Omen-lovers may find in the fact food for their faith. Captain Hinck- 
ley, of the American bark Don Quixotte, together with the captains of other vessels, 
American and Mexican, then in the harbor, supplied the decorations of flags of both 
countries, the band of music from the Don Quixote, and two cannon were obtained 
from the Presidio. There were present more than half a hundred of the most 
respectable inhabitants and strangers ; a grand dinner was served, toasts were drank, 
a ball followed ; they were all happy ; they made a night of it ; they prolonged the 
session, as do our members of Congress on the third of March, late into the subse- 
quent day. American civilization, trade, amity and pleasure were thus inaugurated. 

During the year 1838 Mr. Leese erected a large building on the spot which is now 
the corner of Commercial and Montgomery streets. Captain Richardson, during 
this year also, erected the adobe house formerly known as the " Casa Grande," near 
where the Adelphi Theater now stands, a short distance west of the line of Dupont 
Street, between Washington and Clay Streets. After standing seventeen years, it was 
taken down to give place to more modern structures, and thus the most noted of the 


old Mexican landmaris disappeared ; for althougt not erected by a Mexican, it was 
of truly Mexican architecture, and indicative of Mexican supremacy at its beginning. 
On the loth of April, of this year (1838.) a daughter was born to Mrs. Leese, which 
was named Rosalie, the first child of ciNalized parents born in Yerba Buena. The 
mother — a sister of General M. G. Vallejo — Mr. Leese had married on the seventh 
of the preceding April. In 1839 the first survey of Yerba Buena was made by 
Captain Juan Vioget, by order of Governor Alvarado, covering only the space now 
included principally within the boundaries of Pacific, Montgomery, Sacramento and 
Dupont Streets. In 1841 Mr. Leese sold out all, or a portion of his real estate, to 
the Hudson Bay Company, and removed to Sonoma. Three years later the place 
contained only ten or twelve houses and some fifty people ; two years later still, the 
Hudson Bay Company broke up their establishment and departed. This, however, 
did not appear to have exercised any injurious eftect on the place, as buildings and 
population had, by the close of the year, quadrupled within two years, and from this 
time the increase was still more rapid ; for, on the 8th of July, the American flag 
had been hoisted in the Plaza, by Captain Montgomery, of the American sloop-of- 
war Portsmouth, in obedience to the command of Commodore Sloat, who had run 
up the same ensign on the previous day at Monterey. Under that flag population 
rapidly gathered ; its shadow was a protection, and in its flutterings people heard the 
murmurs of approaching empire, wealth, freedom and prosperity. On the last day 
of the same month the ship Brooklyn, with a large complement of Mormon and other 
passengers, arrived in San Francisco. This may be considered the vanguard of the 
fleet of immigrant-loaded ships which, for years, came loaded with their adventurous, 
living cargoes. 

Little occurred worthy of notice during the remainder of 1846. The population 
gradually increased and took the form of society ; balls were given ; Commodore 
Stockton received a public reception, foreigners and natives joining heartily in the 
compliment, and general quiet prevailed. With the American people the printing 
press goes in the van of emigration, and the newspaper is quite likely to give notice 
of the first sermon to be preached. Yerba Buena, peopled mostly by Americans and 
Europeans, not only had felt for some time the need of a newspaper, but, by 1847, 
was considered sufficiently able to support one. On the 7th of January of that year, 
Mr. Samuel Brannan published the first number of the " California Star," which was 
edited by Dr. E. P. Jones. It was published weekly — a small but prettily-got-up 
paper for a new country, "so far away from home !" This was the second newspaper 
published in the State, the "Califomian" having been commenced in Monterey as 
early as August 15th, 1846, by Messrs. Colton and Semple. On the 22d of May, 
Mr. Semple transferred the publication of his paper to Yerba Buena, which, by that 
time, had almost eclipsed Monterey. 

On the 30th of January, 1847, the settlement of Yerba Buena was christened San 
Francisco — the old name being dropped — by authority of an ordinance issued by 
Washington A. Bartlett, Chief Magistrate, or Alcalde — being the first person holding 
that office under the American rule. Being ordered to his ship, Mr. George Hyde 
acted temporarily as Alcalde. On the 22d of February, 1847, Mr. Edwin Bryant, 
subsequently author of " What I saw in California," was sworn into office as succes- 
sor to Mr. Bartlett. 


A regiment of volunteers had been raised in New York City, during 1846, for 
service in California, under command of Col. J. D. Stevenson. The first detachment, 
with its commander, reached San Francisco on the 6th of March, in the ship Thomas 
H. Perkins. Many of the officers, as well as privates of this regiment, still remain 
in the State, not a few having filled very important positions. A strong American 
sentiment, as well as population, now ruled in the town. This feeling was strongly 
expressed on the 28th of May, when the place was illuminated for the first time, in 
honor of Gen. Taylor's victory at Buena Vista. On this occasion there was a great 
consumption of whatever could produce light and noise. Tallow, oil, tar, powder, 
lungs, — all were brought into requisition, and houses, hill-sides, shipping, air and 
sea, were lighted up with a blaze and a glow of light only equaled by the patriotism 
which thus found expression. 

General Kearny, Governor of California, having by decree, on the 10th of March, 
released to the people and town of San Francisco the interest of the United States in 
the beach and water lots on the east front of the town, between Clark's and Rincon 
Points, they were advertised for sale on the 10th day of June, by authority of Alcalde 
Bryant, on the 16th of March. The sale was postponed until the 20th of July, when 
nearly one-half of the four hundred and fifty lots were sold, at prices varying from 
fifty to one hundred dollars. In the course of five or six years some of those lots 
were valued at more than fifty thousand dollars, and we believe changed hands at 
even higher prices. The upland lots, fifty varas square, during this summer, had 
been disposed of at twelve dollars each, which, with costs of recording, etc., amounted 
to sixteen dollars. It was but a short time before many of these lots were worth and 
sold at sixteen thousand dollars each, and some of them soon commanded prices 
having too much the sound of the fabulous to be here stated. The provision which 
restricted any one person from holding more than a fifty, or a hundred vara lot, 
was evaded by speculators ; and alcaldes and council, catching the speculative mania, 
and, at the same time, laying aside conscience as a profitless encumbrance, soon 
rescinded the anti-land grabbing regulation, and plunged head-foremost into land- 
jobbing and speculation. A few men then seized almost the entire domain, grew 
suddenly immensely rich, created a land aristocracy, and reduced all others to the 
necessity of paying immense prices for building lots, or still more enormous ones in 
the shape of rent. The Mexican system was the rational one, and had the same or 
a similar one prevailed, limiting each of our own inhabitants to a single lot, the city 
of San Francisco would have been worth more by millions than it is to-day. There 
is no monopoly so detrimental to the prosperity of a community as a monopoly 
of land. 

In June of this year the population amounted to about four hundred and sixty, of 
which nearly one hundred and forty were females, the bulk of the inhabitants being 
composed of persons in the prime of life, or of still immature years ; an ardent, 
daring, adventurous population, one-half of American birth, and the rest hailing from 
nearly all the nations of the earth. Thus early was the place in its population a fair 
specimen of what it has continued, with the exception, perhaps, that the American 
element has gradually gained in relative proportion upon the foreign. Certain 
crosses of blood in the horse and other animals are known to improve the stock. It 
is so with mankind. Whether it will prove so with the people of this city, can be 


better decided some years hence. But as certainly as the mingling of the Crusaders 
with the people of other than their own countrymen, was the means of advancing 
the civilization of Europe, and changing, eventually, its " Dark Ages" into the clearer 
light of modern civilization, art, science, literature and liberty, so surely may we 
anticipate that the knowledge gained from the opportunities here enjoyed, of studying 
the characteristics of other nations without travelling abroad, and appropriating to 
our own use whatever of inteleetual or mechanical superiority they may exhibit 
among us, will tend still further to advance our own knowledge, and more rapidly 
develop the resources of city, state and people. 

The public business of the town having much increased. Governor Mason ordered 
the Alcalde, Mr. George Hyde, to hold a meeting for the election of six persons to 
assist him in the government of the town. These persons were to constitute the 
ayuntamiento. The Alcalde had previously appointed six to hold office until super- 
ceded by those elected by the people. The election took place on the 13th of Sep- 
tember. Much blame has been heaped upon the government thus formed. They 
doubtless did some unwise acts ; it may be, some deserving a harsher term, for they 
were men. But when it is recollected that they had to bring order out of chaos, per- 
haps a milder and more just estimate of what they did will prevail. At least, a portion 
of the council were men of honesty of purpose, unimpeached and unimpeachable. 

Steam, like the press, goes with the Americans as one of their institutions. In 
November the first steamboat which honored the bay, made an experimental trip. 
The exports during the last three months of this year amounted to within a fraction 
of fifty thousand dollars, and the imports to something more than that sum. Early 
in January, 1848, an attempt was made by the ayuntamiento to suppress gambling, by 
resolutions authorizing fines and confiscation. But the next meeting of the council 
repealed these resolutions — through what influences they were actuated, is not quite 
clear. Gradually the town assumed a more and more commercial character. A 
wholsesale prices current was published on the 15th of March. Gradually, too, the 
population increased, and now amounted to more than eight hundred persons, sixty 
of whom were children of an age capable of attending the sohool which was opened 
soon afterwards, viz., on the 3d of April, under the charge of Mr. Thomas Douglas. 
On the same day. Dr. J. Townsend became Alcalde, Mr. Hyde having resigned. The 
town was slowly rising to the dignity of " a place." It already had several mer- 
cantile firms, places of amusement, public houses, and, according to appearances, 
promised, in the course of one or two decades, to become perhaps a city with half a 
score of thousands of inhabitants. Suddenly into this quietly-progressing community, 
as into the conclave of the gods, came the same tempter, gold. In January it had 
been discovered at Coloma, on the American River. Rumors of the discovery and 
particles of the dust occasionally reached San Francisco. Soon miners, with sud- 
denly-acquired " piles," arrived, and then the race for wealth commenced. All other 
occupations at once lost their charm. Gold dazzled the eyes and the imagination, 
and the three beauties of heathen mythology were eclipsed in speed and fervor by 
the new pursuers of the tempting fruit. In this modern contest, however, the golden 
apple was not dedicated to " the most beautiful." Strong hearts and willing hands, 
industry, perseverance, energy, hope, and, as some believe, luck, decided who should 
be successful. 


Thus commenced a human stampede such as few things less than an avalanche, an 
earthquake, a conquering army, or a flood, could produce. Who would drudge and 
fag at dry goods, at the press, on ship or on shore, for wages which seemed a mere 
pittance when contrasted with the fabulous wealth which lay in the beds and banks 
of the streams, ready to bestow a golden smile upon the wooer ? Away went laborer 
and mechanic. Away went clerk and merchant. Business in the town stood still. 
Tents were empty — houses shut up. The turkey buzzard alighted in the streets; 
grass grew where men had trod ; ships lay at anchor without a keeper ; the town 
was almost depopulated. The newspapers ceased their issues, for the printers and 
pressmen had fled like people from the plague of London, and the editor exchanged 
the quill for the crowbar, the scissors for the pick, and, instead of writing leaders upon 
the supplies of gold, he rushed to the mines and washed it from his pan. The people 
of the place having left, oft' went the government also. The town was almost 
deserted. After awhile, the " Californian" revives, and is issued once more on the 
15th of July. Nearly a month later a grand illumination in honor of the peace 
with Mexico, occurred on the 11th of August. Something later, viz., on the 9th of 
September, a public meeting decided that sixteen dollars an ounce should be the rate 
at which gold dust should be received in business transactions, and it was resolved to 
urge upon Congress the establishment of a mint in the town, so confident were the 
people, many of whom had returned from the mines, that the supply would be 

On the 1st of November, Rev. T. Dwight Hunt was elected chaplain, to preach to 
the citizens in the school-house, on the south-west corner of the Plaza. Prices of 
provisions were high, wages also still advancing. Real estate did not follow the usual 
increase in j^rices ; it may be said to have jumped from low figures to princely sums, 
doubling in the space of twenty-four hours, and even in many instances at a still 
more rapid rate. Cargoes of goods were landed — the duties during the year 
amounting to nearly $200,000 ; the goods imported, to nearly a million of dollars in 
value ; coin to an equal amount, and the export of gold for the last half of the year 
reaching two millions of dollars. Since then it has reached more than twice that 
amount monthly. As might be anticipated, the world was stirred at such a result so 
soon after the discovery, and the thousands of adventurers throughout civilization 
had already begun to prepare for their emigration. 

Many who had tried their luck in the mines, returned to San Francisco. Even 
their great success in obtaining gold could not compensate all for their privations ; 
the exposure, the sickness, the hard labor and harder fare, which fell to their lot. 
And the shrewd trader saw that rich as were the gold placers, a richer field for accu- 
mulating wealth lay open before him in the town itself. The great prices and great 
rise in various kinds of goods, provisions and other necessaries of life, opened the 
brightest prospects for those who preferred trade to gold-hunting. He saw, also, that 
immigration from the nearest territories was but a mite to that which would flow in 
from abroad, when the wild reports of abundant gold should reach and be accredited 
in the Eastern States, in Europe, and among the eastern nations of Asia. Very 
wisely some chose the placers in the town in which to coin fortunes, instead of the 
ravines and river beds, where they might dig the raw material. So they remained. 
Experience proved the wisdom of their choice. The profits of some fiims were 


enormous. Fortunes were acquired in a year through trade. For soon the influx of 
strangers became enormous. The key note was struck. The music had gone abroad, 
and the echoes were heard returning in the voices of hundreds of thousands of gold- 
seekers, and the sounds of trade and business which their advent made. Cadmus had 
sowed the dragon's teeth, and now sprung up on all sides men armed for the combat — 
the battle for gold against every obstacle — ocean dangers, long voyages, dangerous 
travel, deserts, Indians, sickness, hunger, thirst, starvation, heat, cold, toil, absence, 
isolation, death. The nations were stirred, the sea was alive with ships, the ships 
with multitudes ; the deserts heard human voices ; the mountains felt the rushing 
tread of westward-moving myriads ; and soon this host were to touch the shores 
tread the sands and make busy the streets, tents and stores of San Francisco. 

The " Star and Californian" newspaper, which had succeeded the " California Star " 
and "Californian," uniting the two ofiSces during the latter part of 1848, became the 
"Alta California" on the 4th of January, 1849. After the middle of this month, 
when an election for a new town-council had been held, the civil aspect of the town 
was rather mixed and uncertain, there being three councils, each claiming to be the 
legitimate one. That of the early part of 1848 finally yielded to the one chosen on 
the loth of January, but the one chosen on December 27th still held out. Finally a 
compromise was efi'ected through a public meeting; the members of both councils 
resigned, and fourteen new members were elected for the council, and three as jus- 
tices, on the 21st of February. On the last day of February the steamship California, 
the pioneer of the mail steamers of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, arrived, 
and was warmly received. On the 31st of March arrived the steamship Oregon, 
bringing the first regular mail and the first postmaster for San Francisco — Col. John 
TV. Geary. During the first half of this year the municipal affairs of the place were 
in chaos. There was, indeed, no settled government — the people opposing the claims 
of Mr. Leavenworth, the Alcalde, and Governor Riley supporting him. However, 
the Governor finally issued his proclamation for an election on the 1st of August for 
municipal and other oflBcers, and for delegates to form a State Constitution. The 
people held a meeting, denied the right of Governor Riley to appoint the time and 
place for election of delegates, yet acquiesced, as a matter of policy, in his proposal 
or order. The legislative council finally dissolved, and left the Alcalde and his 
council in undisputed sway. 

The population was fast increasing, the harbor was fast filling with ships, ihe immi- 
grants were coming by thousands, improvements were progressing rapidly, and 
business Was exceedingly brisk and profitable. Fresh comers made their purchases 
and left for the mines ; successful miners returned with their quickly-acquired 
fortunes, to spend their gold at the gaming table, or in other modes of dissipation, 
or to appropriate it in purchases for the mining trade, lands, or buildings. The 
people as yet were like one of the tribes of Israel, living in tents ; or like the Arabs, j 
sleeping in the air and on the sand. Everything went with a rush. Society there 
was none. As in Israel at one time, " every man did that which seemed good in his 
own eyes." By midsummer, disorder reigned ; lawless persons became a terror to 
the well-disposed, and, having formed themselves into a kind of organization known 
as the " Hounds," spread terror and dismay through a town by this time having a 
population of at least five thousand persons. They committed all sorts of outrages, 


attacking and robbing tents and stores, and helped themselves to whatever they 
fancied, without money and without price. Their outrageous conduct at length 
aroused the inhabitants, and they formed themselves into a kind of police and mili- 
tary organization, seized numbers of the " Hounds," or " Eegulators," as they styled 
themselves, put them upon trial before a court which the community instituted, found 
nine of them guilty of robbery and other crimes, and punished them with imprison- 
ment and fines. This organization of the people may be considered the first Vigi- 
lant Committee of San Francisco. It scattered and suppressed effectually the organ- 
ization of the " Hounds." 

At the election on the 1st of August, in accordance with the proclamation of 
Governor Riley, Horace Hawes was elected Prefect, and John W. Geary First Alcalde. 
The council assembled, the Alcalde and Prefect gave their addresses, and the city 
was organized by a regularly constituted elective government. The Baptists dedi- 
cated the first Protestant Church in the town, on the 5th of August, of this year, 
(1849). Several other denominations were already organized, and were progressing 
towards the erection of houses of worship. 

During the month of October steam navigation became a feature in business trans- 
actions, the iron steamers Pioneer, and Mint, and the old propeller McKim, having 
commenced their trips between San Francisco and the interior towns. The Senator 
was soon put upon the Sacramento and San Francisco line, where she continued for 
years, and with a safety and pecuniary success perhaps never equaled. On the 25th 
of the same month, also, political matters took form by a Democratic meeting on 
the Plaza. Rowe's Olympic Circus opened on the 29th of the same month, and 
thus inaugurated the commencement of theatrical entertainments. One month later, 
a day was observed as one of thanksgiving and prayer for the advent of the new 
State of California, in obedience to a proclamation of the Governor. Thus early was 
the custom of the Eastern States acknowledged and instituted on the Pacific Coast. 
Probably pumpkin pies were not so generally discussed as in New England, but the 
day and the sentiment were not forgotten. 

An election was held on the 13th of November, 1849, to elect the first ofiicers 
under the new State Constitution, and, at the same time votes were polled upon 
the acceptance or rejection of that instrument. In San Francisco only five out of 
two thousand and fifty-six votes were thrown against it. At this election Gabriel B. 
Post and Nathaniel Bennett were chosen State Senators ; and William Van Voorhies, 
Edmund Randolph, Levi Stowell, J. H. Watson, and J. A. Patterson, members of 
Assembly. It was the first election for State officers. 

The Court of First Instance, under Judge William B. Almond, by order of the 
Governor, was organized on the 12th of December. Its jurisdiction was limited to 
civil cases, and to sums exceeding one hundred dollars. The object was to lighten 
the duties of the Alcalde's Court, which had become too onerous. All who ever 
stood in the presence of the Court of Judge Almond, can never forget the amusing 
scenes which occurred there, where decision was rendered by the Judge with a 
promptness and result which often astounded lawyers, witnesses and contestants. 

December 24th is remembered as that which saw the first of those great fires 
which, at intervals, have laid the buildings and the hopes of many of the citizens of 
San Francisco in ashes. On the morning of that day, Dennison's Exchange, on the 


east side of the Plaza, was discovered to be on fire at about six o'clock. Nearly all 
the block bounded by Kearny, Washington, Montgomery and Clay Streets, was 
destroyed. The loss was estimated at a million of dollars. With no organized Fire 
Department, and the inflammable nature of the buildings being considered, it was 
wonderful that the conflagration did not make a still more general deyastation. By 
this fire, the Parker House, which at that time was probably bringing in a much 
larger rental than any other building in the United States, was destroyed. The con- 
dition of the streets at this time was exceedingly disagreeable. The first rains of the 
season had commenced on the 8th of October, and the next day it fell in great 
quantities. But the streets were soon in a tolerable condition again. But about the 
4th of November the rains re-commenced, and from that time until April, the mud' 
was truly appalling. The streets were, almost without exception, in a state of nature, 
neither paved nor planked, and their continual use by teams soon rended them mere 
quagmires, where man and beast were liable to be stuck as in a bog. Something 
disagreeable was this to persons recently from the firm streets of eastern cities. 

This year had added a large increase to the previous population of the town. 
More than thirty thousand persons had reached San Francisco by sea — more than 
two-thirds of whom had come within the latter half of the year — for the Atlantic 
States and Europe were now pouring their adventurous population into California. 
The city now contained at least twenty thousand inhabitants, and besides these, prob- 
ably more than ten thousand transient persons on their way to the mines, or returned 
from them, for business, pleasure, or health. It was a to^Ti of men — few women 
and fewer children being of its population. At this period men's homes were at the 
eating houses, or in their miserable cloth tents, and almost the only comfortable places 
of resort were the gambling saloons, which were warm and dry, though foetid with 
the fumes of tobacco, gin, and other liquors, and the poisonous air which had done its 
duty in turn to a hundred sets of lungs. In such places men needed not drink as a 
prelude to intoxication. They could absorb it through nostrils and pores of their 
skin, and, in addition, bands of music helped the excitement and diverted the self- 
examination and reflection of those who stood within those alluring hells. Few 
could see the heaps of gold upon the gambling tables and breathe the air, and resist 
the influences around and before them. Men entered to avoid the rain and get warm, 
or through curiosity, saw, bet, and were ruined. Most men gambled in those days. 
It is fashionable and right now to denounce the habit. But some, ay, many who do 
so, when they do it, denounce their own conduct in 1849. The fox who lost his tail 
is not likely to admire the trap, nor them who set it. And the temptations now to 
gamble, it must be confessed, are vastly less than then. But although that nee is 
now deservedly unpopular, charity and consistency should not be. 

Those closing months of 1849 were the golden age of the town. Nearly every- 
body had money, and few were there who did not assign a large tenement in their 
minds to the smiling goddess, Hope. There was enough to do, wages were hio-h, 
gold was plenty. " On with the dance, let joy be unconfined," seemed the motto of 
all. Everything was high — rents, interest, goods and pleasures. Men lived a year 
in twenty-four hours, for events are a truer chronicler of life than days and years. 
To this bright picture there was a dark side, for there were some destitute and sick 
even in the midst of so much plenty ; and woe to the invalid, whose sick-bed was 

2* ' '' 


probably the ground, with only a blanket between it and his body, a thin cloth tent 
above him, and neither wife, sister, doctor nor nurse, to soothe, to administer, to 
nourish. Strangers in a strange land, many a poor creature sickened and died in 
destitution, whose previous life had been passed amid the comforts, pleasures and 
luxuries of society. Ever thus is it in life. At the side of the palace totters the hut. 
The hovel leans against the gorgeous cathedral. The groans of the sick and dying 
penetrate the wall and windows of the ball-room ; the beggar is jostled in the street 
by the millionaire. Rags and ribbons, poverty and wealth, sleek comfort and 
squalid misery, lamentation and laughter, mourning and rejoicing, bridal robes and 
weeds of sorrow, sickness and health, life and death, fill up the Pandora's box in 
which we dwell. San Francisco, in its best days, has not been free from the common 
lot. Yet, amid all its recklessness, many of its people were not unmindful of the 
obligations of a common humanity. They gave freely for the cause of the distressed 
when appealed to. But the trouble was that nearly all the well were too busy to 
think about the destitute — strangers and aliens to each other. 

On the 3d of Jan'y, 1850 by order of the ayuntamiento, a sale of four hundred and 
thirty-four water lots brought nearly six hundred and fifty thousand dollars, averaging 
nearly one thousand five hundred dollars each, an evidence of prosperity truly 
astonishing, when those prices are compared with sales of similar property less than 
two and a half years before, being from fifteen to twenty times as great. On the 
eighth of January an election for State Senator, Member of Assembly, First Alcalde 
and other officers was held, which resulted in the choice of D. C. Broderick for 
Senator, Samuel J. Clarke for Assembly, and John W. Geary for Alcalde. About 
this time, viz : on the 22d of January, another evidence of the progress of the place 
was the issuing of the "Alta California" newspaper as a daily. The next day a new 
paper, the "Journal of Commerce," was published as a daily, in accordance with a 
prospectus pre\'iously issued by Mr. W. Bartlett. The proprietors of the "Alta" 
anticipated the issue of the "Journal " Tjy a, " snap judgment," bringing out their paper 
as a daily one day in advance of it without previous notice. The issuing of news- 
paj)ers, and generally their demise, subsequent to this time were so fi'equent, that they 
may be passed over as unimportant facts. The first " squatter " difficulty occurred on 
the 28th of February, on Eincon Point. The United States Reserves at this point 
had been leased to Mr. Alexander Sliillaber, who upon attempting to take possession, 
was resisted by the squatters who had settled upon the land. They were dispossessed 
by Capt. Keyes of the U. S. Army with a small force of troops. He was sustained 
by the Courts. During March the contest about the "Colton Grants" between the 
ayuntamiento and the prefect, Horace Hawes, came to a chmax, by the former 
preferring charges against the latter who was restrained by the Governor, from 
exercising the duties of prefect. He had previously authorized Mr. G. Q. Colton, a 
Justice of the Peace, to sell the lands of the city and account to himself for Ae same. 
Many lots were under such authority, sold for a song, and the authorities of the city 
had not even the benefit of the music. On the 1st of April Col. "Jack Hays, the 
Texas Ranger," was elected Sheriff of the county at its first election for officers. 
There was much enthusiasm for " Jack " on this occasion, and there was no resisting 
his popularity. 

The Legislature passed on the 15th of the month the first City Charter of San 


Francisco. By the boundaries fixed by this charter the city covered a space of about 
three miles, north and south, by nearly two east and west. It .djvided the city into 
eigiit wards. The Charter was approved by the people on the first of May, and J. W. 
Geary elected Mayor, together with seven Heads of Departments, eight Aldermen, 
eight Assistant Aldermen and eight Assessors. 

We now approach the date of the second great fire of San Francisco, viz : the 4th 
of May, 1850, at which time property valued at four millions, was destroyed. It 
commenced at about four o'clock A. M., and in five hours laid three blocks, of six 
fifty varas each, — more than seven acres — in ashes. The fire was supposed to be the 
work 'of incendiaries. Great however as was the disaster, the young and hopeful 
energy of the citizens which knew no such feeling as despair, or even despondency, 
commenced rebuilding ere the cinders of the conflagration had cooled. This has 
ever been a marked characteristic of the people and place under all similar afflictions. 
Instances have occurred where bargains for new buildings have been made ere the fire 
reached the old ones, and the timber for the one to be built begun to be landed on 
the lot ere the smoke from the burned building had ceased to rise. Set the mind and 
energies of man free, and fire his soul with hope, and there is no bound to what he 
may accomplish. The city government was organized on the 9th of May by the 
meeting of the two Boards of the Council, election of officers, appointment of com- 
mittees, and reading the message of the Mayor. The finances were reported 'to be'in 
a favorable condition. Another terrible fire occurred on the 14th of May, more 
destructive than either of the preceding, the damage being estimated at over five 
millions of dollars. It destroyed nearly every building, and almost all the goods located 
within the bounds of Clay, Kearny and California Streets and the harbor. This 
was a severe shock. But so elastic was the pulilic feeling, that persons who left the 
city just preceding the fire, and returned in July, saw no signs of the conflagration 
save the absence of the buildings which they left standing, and the same sites occupied 
by entirely new structures. The burned district was entirely rebuilt. 

The members of the Council soon begun to discuss the propriety of voting them- 
selves salaries. This created much discussion among the people and through the 
press. The Council fixed high salaries for the Heads of Departments, and four 
thousand dollars each to themselves. Indignation meetings were held, the Council 
were requested to reduce those salaries or resign, and finally the salaries of the 
municipal officers were reduced, and the ordinance allowing the members of the 
Common Council four thousand dollars each, was vetoed by the Mayor. Some idea 
of the business and commerce of the place about this time, may be inferred from the 
fact that by .July of this year, over five hundred vessels were lying in the harbor, by 
far the greater portion being ships. It was very difficult to ship a crew at that time, 
the 7nines and high prices of labor ofifering enticement enough to induce most seamen 
to desert, and to prevent them from reshipping. So, when a vessel once reached the 
port she was very efiectually anchored for a long time, more through lack of crew 
than by her "ground tackle." The searchers after the Northwest Passage found not 
the Polar ice a more certain barrier, than did masters and consignees of vessels, the 
temptations which took Jack from the forecastle and changed him into a land crab. 
About this time many of those who had come early to California, commenced 
discussing the propriety of associating themselves as a society for social enjoyment, etc. 


and the " Society of California Pioneers " was in consequence formed during August. 
Wm. D. M. Howard was elected the President of the Society. News reaching the 
city that squatter riots had occurred at Sacramento and Brighton resulting in the 
death of several persons, the California Guard and Protection Fire Company, No. 2, 
in response to a proclamation of the Mayor, repaired to Sacramento on the 15th of 
August. The disturbances had been quelled before their arrival. The 29th of this 
month was observed as one of sorrow for the demise, and respect to the memory of 
President Taylor. A very large funeral procession, in which the military and fire 
companies and other associations joined, proceeded through the streets, and to the 
Plaza, where it was addressed by Hon. Elcan Hydenfeldt, who pronounced an eloquent 
eulogy upon the departed hero. The Chinese, who had on the previous day been 
presented with tracts, books and newspapers printed in Chinese characters, by the 
Mayor and others, on the Plaza — formed a curious and picturesque feature in the 
procession. They were richly and gaily 'dressed in their national costumes, and 
excited much interest. 

The march of improvement was visible on all hands. Its steps were rapid and 
distinct. During September one of them appeared in the issue of the first "Directory " 
of the city, published by Charles P. Kimball. It contained about two thousand five 
hundred names, printed in a duodecimo pamphlet of one hundred and thirty-six 
pages. It may be interesting to compare that pamphlet with the present work, with 
its sixteen to twenty thousand homes, long list of schools, colleges, churches and 
public institutions, commercial establishments, foundries, miles of streets, wharves, 
roads, cemeteries, hospitals, benevolent societies, halls, fire department, presenting all 
the indications of a rate of progress scarcely conceivable in the short interval between 
the two publications. 

The efi'ects of the speculations of the past and present year began now to be felt. 
The reaction came, real estate and goods became a drug, prices fell, confidence was 
lost, a run was made upon the banks, merchants, bankers, contractors and others 
failed, and many from the hight of apparent prosperity and wealth, were ruined 
almost in a day. Immediately upon these events came the fourth great fire, on the 
I7th of September. It destroyed nearly four blocks lying between Montgomery, 
^Yashington, Dupont and Pacific Streets. Most of the buildings were wooden 
shanties, and probably the damage did not exceed half a million of dollars. It 
however ruined completely for the time, many industrious, but unfortunate persons. 
However, hope revived, and the smoking ruins soon gave way to new improvements. 
At this period, the city was advancing rapidly in improvements along the margin of 
the bay, on the eastern front. Not only were stores being erected upon piles, over 
the water, but to accommodate and facilitate commercial transactions, some ten or 
twelve wharves had been commenced, and had been extended, some of them thousands 
of feet into the bay. 

The long suspense of the citizens in reference to the admission of California into 
the Union, was put at rest on the 18th of October, by the arrival of the steamship 
Oregon, which arrived that day, decorated with flags and firing salutes as an 
indication that the long agony was over. The delay of Congress had given much 
ofl'ense, and not a few had talked of an independent Pacific Republic. But at the 
sight of the Oregon with the news she bore, every other thought died out before the 


one feeling of patriotism, and hearts, hands and voices united in a most joyous 
welcome. Flags of all nations were hoisted, and little else than rejoicing was done 
during the remainder of that day. The 29th of the month was fixed upon as the 
one when the people unitedly in a public manner should express their satisfaction 
and joy at the result. On that occasion a very large procession was formed, and 
proceeded through the streets, Judge Bennett delivered an eloquent oration, bonfires 
and fireworks illumined the night, and more than five hundred persons attended a 
grand ball at the California Exchange. This day, too, chronicled the first steamboat 
explosion in California. The boiler of the Sagamore burst just as she was about 
leaving the wharf and some thirty persons lost their lives. Thus mingled are the 
scenes of life and death, joy and sorrow. 

The proposition of Col. Wilson to construct a plank road to the Mission Dolores 
through the sand hills, was acted upon by the Council on the 1 8th day of November, 
and an ordinance granting the privilege, was passed. The road was commenced, and 
completed within five months, and has added much to the progress and convenience 
of the city, as well as to the value of its real estate. Generally the streets of the 
city had been much improved, graded, planked, and were in a very different condition 
for meeting the demand upon them during the rainy season, from what they had 
presented one year before. More than six hundred and fifty vessels had arrived in 
the port during the year, and the population had greatly increased. The influx of 
strangers and gold, had more than counterbalanced the efiects of the great fires 
which had occurred. Thus ended 1850. There had been reverses, but still the city's 
course had been onward. The place had proved emiBently healthy — even the cholera 
lost its terrors here for nearly all, except a few dissipated persons. Politically and 
financially, it cannot be said that much progress except backwards, had been made. 
The city was getting deeply in debt, and her credit growing worse. The courts were 
inefficient in most cases, and violations of law and order were frequently committed. 

The year 1851 was inaugurated during all the month of January by the Gold Bluff 
excitement. That " old sea loafer " the propeller Chesapeake, which had expended 
twelve or fourteen months in floating sidewise, stern foremost and otherwise, in 
reaching California from somewhere on the Atlantic coast, had taken a company of 
"prospectors" up the coast to a place where, near the point afterwards dubbed 
" Gold Blufi's," on the Pacific shore, the magnifying eyes, fancies and tongues of 
the party located in their reports, unheard of, incalculable amounts of gold dust in 
the sands of the sea beach. The reports run some people almost wild. The share 
holders in the expedition and discovery were assured that their claim would yield 
them at least fifty millions of dollars each. The old catch of "white sand gray sand," 
took a new form. It was now " black sand and gold sand." The writer saw one of 
these happy gentlemen, when the announcement was made to him, place his feet 
upon the mantel, and heard him exclaim, "Now I'll buy Rhode Island for4ay summer 
villa, and Cuba for my winter's residence." Extravagant as were these reports, many 
believed them, and invested all they had in expeditions got up for securing the 
immense treasure. The whole aftair was a humbug, the stories lies, with the poor 
foundation of a little gold dust mingled with any quantity of sand washed from the 
" Bluff's " by the lashing waves of the ocean, and to gather which required risk of 
life for a very poor daily recompense. This was the last flickering blaze of glory in 


the expiring rocket of the pestilent " old sea loafer." The social condition of the 
city grew rapidly worse. Robberies, assaults and murders grew more and more 
common, until on the 19th of February audacity and crime reached its climax by an 
attack upon a !Mr. Jansen in his own store on Montgomery street, early in the 
evening, by two villains, who knocked him down with a slung shot, robbed his desk 
of two thousand dollars, and left him for dead on the floor. This outrageous act 
created an intense excitement. Two men, Burdue and Windred were soon arrested 
and tried by the people outside of the law and the courts. An attempt was made to 
seize and hang these men by the people assembled by thousands around the City Hall. 
Speeches were made calling for their execution. However, a people's jury, judges, 
prosecutor, sherifl", and prisoner's counsel were appointed, and the prisoners were 
tried on the 24th of February. Nine of the jury were for conviction, three were 
opposed. Many of the people, much disappointed, cried aloud for their execution, 
but cooler counsels prevailed, and the crowd voted to adjourn. It was proved 
afterward that these two men were not guilty of the assault and robbery of Mr. 
Jansen. They were afterward tried by the court, found guilty, and sentenced to 
fourteen years' imprisonment. Windred escaped from prison and left for Australia. 
Burdue, who had throughout all this excitement been believed to be one Stuart who 
had murdered Sheriff Moore of Auburn, was subsequently tried at Marysville for that 
offense, and sentenced to be hung. But before that sentence was carried into effect, 
the real Stuart had been arrested, tried, and found guilty by the Vigilance Committee 
which had been formed in San Francisco, had confessed the murder of Mooi'e and 
the attack and robbery of Jansen, and was finally hung by them. Burdue was 
released in consequence. His personal likeness to Stuart was very remarkable, even 
to the loss of a portion of one of his fingers. Stuart's arrest and punishment seemed 
to partake of the Providential. He had returned to the city, visited the Mission, 
returned to the city over the sand hills to avoid observation, but in doing so fell 
among some members of the Vigilance Committee who were searching among the 
bushes in the vicinity of a recent robbery, and was arrested by them as the robber. 
Instead of being guilty of that crime, it led to his arrest, trial, conviction and 
execution for having committed the others. Truly, " murder will out." 

William Walker — now President of Nicaragua — then one of the editors of the 
" San Francisco Herald," having commented pretty freely upon the conduct of Judge 
Levi Parsons of the District Court, so offended him that he had Mr. Walker 
brought before him', convicted him of contempt, fined him five hundred dollars, and 
ordered him into custody until the fine was paid. This aroused a storm of wrath 
among the people, who assembled upon the Plaza on the 9th of March, passed 
resolutions approving of the course of Mr. Walker and requesting Judge Parsons to 
resign. Mr. Walker was afterwards taken before the Superior Court on a writ of 
habeas corpus, and discharged. Judge Parsons was -afterwards impeached by the 
Legislature, but he was not pronounced guilty by that body. 

The "First Water Lot Bill" which ceded for ninety-nfne years the interest of the 
State in the beach and water lots of the city, was passed on the 26th of March. 
This act was succeeded on the 1st of May by the " Second Water Lot Bill " ceding, 
the State's right and interest to these lots forever. These t'^o acts created much 
discussion and litigation. An Act to reincorporate the city, which enlarged its 


boundaries, was passed on the 15th of April. At the election on the 28th of April, 
the Whigs carried the city, electing Charles J. Brenham, Mayor, and the other Whig 
candidates generally. The city had previously gone Democratic. On the 1st of May 
the Legislature passed an act to fund the debt of the city. The expenditures had for 
a year and a half exceeded one hundred thousand dollars per month, and scrip had 
depreciated to a ruinous rate. The fact was apparent that the city had been swindled, 
her property sold, the proceeds squandered, her debts alarmingly increased, her credit 
nearly ruined, and the corporation reduced almost to bankruptcy. She was in debt 
more than a million of dollars, and she had little besides taxes and licenses to look to 
for paying it. These had been found inadequate to meet her current expenses, as her 
government was managed. To save her credit from ruin, the Legislature passed the 
funding act. 

The fifth great fire occurred on the 4th of May, the anniversary of the second. 
It commenced on the south side of the Plaza, in a paint shop, between eleven and 
twelve o'clock of the 3d of May, and in a few moments the building was in a blaze. 
It spread in all directions. Nothing could arrest its course. All night long it raged, 
and when the sun arose next morning, eighteen squares, some two thousand buildings, 
were in ashes. Not only wooden tenements were destroyed. So great was the heat, 
and rapid the progress, that nearly every brick building, previously considered 
fire-proof, shared the same fate. Many estimated the loss by this terrible conflagration 
at more than ten millions of dollars. But sadder than even this immense loss of 
property, was the destruction of human life, several persons having been burned to 
death. Before the fury of that fiery tornado, wood changed to flames and cinders in 
a flash, brick stores became furnaces, and buildings of iron rolled up like leather and 
crushed into ruins. It was a night of terror, a morning of desolation succeeding. 

One of the greatest inconveniences which the inhabitants had felt was, the 
inadequate supply of good fresh water. To obviate it, a plan was formed to introduce 
water from the Mountain Lake, a body of water located among the hills, between the 
Presidio and the Pacific Ocean, at "about four and a half miles from the Plaza. An 
ordinance granting the privilege to the company formed for the object named, was 
passed by the Council on the 3d of June, which has since been confirmed by the 
Legislature, amended by subsequent ordinances, and the time for completing the work 
extended. Difficulties have arisen to retard the work, but it is now in a fair way for 
being completed within the time specified by the last ordinance which allowed 
eighteen months from the nineteenth of March, 1856, for its completion. There had 
been several hundred thousand dollars expended before the suspension of the work, 
which is now soon to be resumed. When completed, it will prove a great blessing to 
the city, and will doubtless be a paying investment for the capital expended in its 
construction. The great fires of the city, as well as the daily wants of its people, 
have taught the necessity of a work which shall be to San Francisco what the 
Cochituate works are to Boston, the Croton to New York. 

Disorders and brutalities of all kinds continuing to increase, early in June a large 
portion of the active citizens formed themselves into a " Committee of Vigilance," 
and on the morning of the eleventh, executed John Jenkins, by hanging him to a 
cross-beam of the old adobe building then standing on the north-west corner of the 
Plaza. He had been taken in the act of conveying away a small safe of which he 


had boldly robbed a store, during the evening, and having been tried by the Committee, 
was taken to the place named, and executed betweeu one and two o'clock in the 
morning. It was a solemn scene, and one which they who witnessed it, can never 
forget. Nothing less than a full connction that the courts of the city were entirely 
incapable of punishing crime, and that some terrible example of justice was needed 
to check the wholesale disorders which were still increasing, could reconcile law- 
abiding people to the act. The majority decided for, or acquiesced in the action of 
the Committee, and the deed was done. But the police and some private citizens 
endeavored to prevent it. Their numbers were not sufficient to effect a rescue. The 
crowd had indorsed the finding of the Committee's sentence, and were ready to assist 
in its execution. The thousands of the multitude swaying to and fro in the excitement 
of that scene in the darkness, the quiet determination of the Committee, the callous- 
ness of the prisoner, the dreadful sight of a human being swinging from a beam, 
indistinctly seen between the eyes of the gazer and the dim horizon, all these formed 
a picture which made an instantaneous impression upon the memory, like the action 
of light upon the daguerreotype plate, but unlike it, one which cannot be erased. 
It was hoped by many that this summary punishment of crime would check the career 
of the desperadoes within the city, especially as threats had been made by some of 
them to burn it again. It appears however not to have proved entirely efiiective. 
For on the morning of June 22d, just as the bells were ringing the hour for worship — 
it was Sunday — their invitations to prayer and praise, were suddenly changed to the 
clangor of a fire alarm. The hour of the sixth great fire had come. It commenced 
near the corner of Pacific and Powell Streets — undoubtedly the work of an incendi- 
ary — and within four hours, about fourteen blocks were in ashes. The destruction of 
property amounted to three or four millions of dollars. 

At the previous fire every newspaper establishment in the city, except that of the 
" Alta California," had been entirely, or partially destroyed. At this, that office 
shared a similar fate. Coming so soon upon the destruction of the May fire, this 
conflagration was a very disheartening one. But the life and energy of the people 
soon arose above even this stunning blow, and although some were financially ruined 
and disheartened, there were others who gathered up hope and energy even from the 
ashes, and commenced the world anew. Yet it was a longer time than ever before, 
ere new buildings covered the desolate track made by this tornado of fire. Since 
then there have been numberless fires, but none to rank with the six already named. 
The best Fire Department in the world has saved the city from such misfortunes. 

The Vigilance Committee executed James Stuart, previously mentioned, on the 
11th of July, and on the 24th of August re-captured two men — Whittaker and 
McEenzie — who had been taken from them by the authorities and locked up in the 
County Jail, and hung them within twenty minutes from the time they were taken 
from the Jail. In about two weeks from that date the Committee suspended their 
operations, having hung four men, shipped away quite a number of other bad char- 
acters, and frightened from the city many more. Robberies, assaults, thefts and 
crimes generall}" had become less frequent, and comparative quiet now ruled in the 
city. Those only who had been residents during the previous reign of terror, could 
correctly judge of the action of the Committee. Had the courts been what they 
should have been, it never would have existed. 


Theatricals took a new position on the 4th of October, by the opening of the 
Jenny Lind Theater, now the City Hall. It was the fourth or fifth theater built on 
the same spot, all the others havnng been destroyed successively by fire. It was a 
beautiful temple for the dramatic muse, externally and internally. On the 20th of 
the same month the American Theater was opened. It was a large and commodious 
building, and was built on Sansome Street, at some distance be\'ond where had been 
the shore of the harbor a year or two previously. During this year the tide of human 
influx by sea fell considerably below that of the previous year, when it reached 
thirty-six thousand. Many of the arrivals were from China. But as yet few of that 
most degraded and beastly of all the human creatures yet located on the continent — 
the female Chinese — had come. That was an accursed nuisance left for a future 
judgment. The city was, nevertheless, progressing in population and improvements ; 
hills were removed into the harbor, houses were erected forty feet below where the 
surface of the sand had been, and stores were built where ships had floated a year 
before. Comfort, and even luxury, were supplanting the exposure and hard fare of 
the previous years. The markets were abundantly supphed with meats wild and 
tame, game and vegetables. The place was fast becoming an Anierican city, with 
phases, to some extent, unlike any other — the large foreign population having 
engrafted upon its character and appearance not a few of their own national char- 
acteristics. It had the shrewd business air of the Yankees ; the French vivacity ; the 
laborious, plodding and intelligent industry of the German ; the dreamy and improvi- 
dent idleness of the Mexican ; the unique, pig-tailed, narrow-eyed Chinese, to make 
people wonder that nature and custom should so combine to manufacture so much 

individual ugliness, 

On the 30th of January, 1852, the last great sale of city property, under the Peter 
Smith judgments, took place. During the previous year Dr. Peter Smith had 
obtained judgments against the city on the scrip which he had received on his con- 
tract for keeping the city sick, and under those judgments, during that and the 
present year, disposed of nearly all the city's propertv in wharves, water and upland 
lots, worth several millions of dollars, for prices that did not pay his claim, which was 
less than $65,000. It was not believed by the public at large that the sale was legal, 
and only a few persons had the nerve to bid, and of course the property was sacrificed. 
The Supreme Court subsequently confirmed the sales, and thus the princely inherit- 
ance of the city was lost to her forever. This was the result of a great conspiracy, 
or an ignorance little less than villainy, on the part of some persons. TVho were they? 

Notwithstanding the property of the corporation was thus sacrificed, the reck- 
lessness of expenditures, and consequently taxation, did not diminish. The city had 
paid, during the fiscal year ending on the 31st of May, 1852, more than one million 
seven hundred thousand dollars as taxes, in the form of licenses, taxation for City, 
County and State purposes, and as Custom House dues ; besides which, there were 
some three hundred thousand dollars yet to be collected. An additional two hundred 
thousand dollars was added to the city debt by the purchase of the Jenny Lind 
Theater for a City Hall, on the 4th of June. A very large amount, besides, was 
expended subsequently to fit it up, and yet at this day there is a mortgage on the lot 
upon which it stands, for some thirty thousand dollars, unless it has been redeemed 
within a few weeks. 


Though far away from the East, the people of San Francisco were still close to 
their patriotism, and their admiration of genius, eloquence and statesmanship had not 
diminished. This was evident upon the 10th of August, which was solemnized 
by an immense procession and other marks of homage and affection for the 
great man, Henry Clay, news of whose death had recently reached the city. All 
parties, sects and callings forgot, for the time, their rivalries and contentions, and 
united to pay the last sad, grateful honors to one of the greatest and best of orators, 
citizens and statesmen. The city was draped in mourning. Over the tomb of 
greatness and worth, the dissentions of politicians grew silent ; the soul was dumb ; 
the heart was sad. Nationalities were forgotten in honor to him whose broad 
humanity had embraced all the earth. The great man was no more. The great 
Whig Party lay in his honored grave ! 

The sad news of the death of Clay, and the solemnities which followed, were suc- 
ceeded, on the 21st of November, by the news of the death of that other great man 
of the Whig party, of the nation and the world, Daniel Webster. All suitable and 
possible honors were paid to his memory. In all which constitutes a great man, a 
great statesman, a great orator, Daniel Webster possessed as much, if not more, 
united in the same individual, than any other man whose mental glory has illumi- 
nated the continent and shed undying luster on his name. These notices of those 
two statesmen are not strictly of the current history of San Francisco, but the influ- 
ences of their death upon its people, are. And, besides, it may be said that notices of 
such men are seldom out of place. Whatever illustrates the tone of society, may 
aptly be considered an historical event. 

The progress of the city was somewhat illustrated, during December, by the publi- 
cation of a Directory, by Mr. James A. Parker, of nearly one hundred and fifty octavo 
pages, containing some nine thousand names. It was a creditable work, and was the 
third or fourth, in point of time, published in the city. On the 10th of the month 
the first legal execution within the city took place, upon the body of Jose Fomi, who 
was hung upon Russian Hill, for the murder of Jose Rodriguez. He persisted to the 
last that the homicide was committed in self-defense. Many thousand persons were 
present to witness the sad affair. In all countries, communities and ages, a great 
portion of the people are possessed of a large amount of morbid curiosity, which, as 
in this instance, can extract pleasure even from death itself Hazlitt enumerates a 
funeral among his subjects for laughter. 

Nearly seventy thousand persons arrived by sea, in San Francisco, during 1852, and 
but little more than one-third of that number departed seaward. This l^ft a large 
margin of increase for the city, after making due allowance for those departing for 
the mines and other parts of the State. They embraced representatives of nearly all 
the nations of earth. Of the number, a large portion — twenty thousand, at least — 
were Chinese. People difier upon the question whether their influx is to be a bless- 
ing or a curse. The census of the city and county returned over thirty-six thousand 
as the population, or nearly one-seventh of the whole State. The entire population, 
as reported, of both city and State, was undoubtedly too low. The city was steadily 
improving as the last months of the year passed away. 

The arrivals in the port during this year amounted to eleven hundred and forty- 
seven, with a tunnage of over half a million, against eight hundred and forty-seven 


arrivals for the year 1851, with a tunnage of less than one-half that amount. Clear- 
ances exceeded in number, but not in tunnage, those of 1851. The generosity of the 
mines may be inferred from the shipments of gold dust, which, during the year, 
amounted to over forty-six and a half millions of dollars. 

One of the first notable events of 1853, as marking the advance of the city in 
intellectual progress, was the establishment of the Mercantile Library Association. 
This institution, which has received the warm support of the community, is in a veiy 
flourishing condition. It has a large and increasing library of valuable books, and the 
influence it is exerting upon the minds and morals of the community, is beyond cal- 
culation. Like the churches, schools and benevolent associations which have been 
formed, public libraries operate not only upon the intellect, but upon the morals, the 
heart. The essentially animal nature may not be won by them ; but to him who 
possesses a soul above that of the beast in its propensities, these means of pleasure 
and improvement have charms superior to the degrading course of amusement to 
which the ignoble nature resorts, as much more powerful as virtue is more beautiful 
than vice. "\'iewed in this light, the formation of the Mercantile Library Association 
seems a blessing more valuable as an encourager of virtue, a winner fi'om demoral- 
izing pleasures, than for its intellectual influence, or the great convenience it proves 
to the people at large no less than to the scholar. 

Many had been the obstructions to the city's progress. None had been more so, 
not even the great fires, than the unsettled nature of land titles. There were so many 
claimants under different titles for the same lots, that he who bought, despite all 
the care expended in examination and inquiry, was pretty certain to buy from one to 
several lawsuits when he purchased land. During February, the famous claim of 
Limantour, for a large portion of the city's site, was presented before the Board of 
Land Commissioners, and notwithstanding all which was said against it as being- 
fraudulent, was finally confirmed by that tribunal. Limantour's claim professed to 
be in virtue of a grant by Governor Micheltorena, in consideration of moneys ad- 
vanced the agents of the Mexican Government by the claimant. Abuse and ridicule 
followed his claims, which were enormous in extent, covering, besides those in the 
city, and which were of four leagues in extent, numerous other localities, islands in 
the bay and in the Pacific Ocean, and vast tracts of land in other parts of the State. 
But as the lawyers and the courts must decide this question, it is passed over to their 
tender care. The suit, when brought, threw additional doubt upon land titles, already 
as deep over the land as was the drifted sand over the original soil. 

An election of three delegates from each ward to revise the city charter, occurred 
on the 16th of February; and, among other names of those elected, are found, for 
the first ward, those of Harry Meiggs, Edward McGowan and William Carr. The 
first, for forgery, voluntarily sailed away ; the second, for safety from various charges 
and an indictment for murder, gladly run away ; and the third, for ballot-box stuffing 
and other villanies, involuntarily was sent away by the Vigilance Committee of 1856. 

The effoits of Governor Bigler and his sympathizers to extend the water front of the 
city, met with detennined opposition from its inhabitants, and during April, the city 
government took strong ground against the proposed measure, and memorialized the 
Legislature upon the subject. The bill, however, passed the Assembly — two of the 
San Francisco members voting for it. The five who opposed it, resigned, returned to 


the city, and were re-elected by an immense majority. The opponents of the measure 
argued that the front hne of the city had been fixed by the State as a permanent one 
by a previous legislative act ; that rights had accrued under it, and that it would be 
an unjust violation of the implied contract to change that boundary, to the great 
injury of the city, nominally to raise revenue for the State, and particularly to enrich 
a few speculators who were the instigators of the measure. The bill came to a vote 
in the Senate on the 26th of April. The vote stood thirteen for, to thirteen against 
it, when Lieut. Gov. Purdy, as presiding officer, gave his casting vote against it, and 
thus strangled the monster. Subsequently, attempts to pass the biU, or similar ones, 
although urged by Gov. Bigler, ingloriously failed. 

The corner stone of the United States Marine Hospital was laid on the seventh 
of April, on Rincon Point. It is a very fine building, nearly two hundred feet long, 
and almost one hundred feet wide, and is capable of accommodating from five to 
eight hundred patients. It cost nearly or quite a quarter of a million of dollars. 
Thus the first public building erected . by the United States Government within the 
city is one of benevolence, for the benefit of that most useful, though improvident 
class, the mariners. 

As said before, many of the foreigners who settled here, brought with them and 
instituted in their new home some of the customs of their father-land. Perhaps none 
of the Europeans more firmly adhere to the associations of their youth than do the 
Germans. On the 1st of May their society of Turner Gesang Verein celebrated the 
institution of their association, in great numbers, by a procession, athletic exercises, 
music and dancing, at Russ' Garden, with much spirit. The associations and 
pleasures of early life, by the Vistula, the Rhine, the Danube, the Oder and the 
Zuyder Zee, were renewed by the sports and enjoyments of the day, and the grand 
old harmonies which had sprung from the souls of Handel, Mozart and Beethoven, 
and had rung amid the palaces and castles of classic Germany, found voice and echo 
on the Pacific shore, in a new land, but with the original sound and accent. Music, in 
itself, is the universal language. All can understand the nightingale, whether she 
rise from the meadows of "merrie" England, or from Sweden's rugged land; and so 
the harmonies which delight a court in Berlin, or an Italian diet, are understood and 
felt in the cities of Washington and of Montezuma ; by the dweller at Melbourne, or 
by the Bay of San Francisco. So the Germans thought of their father-land, listened 
to its grand symphonies, and were happy. On the next day — Monday — the school 
children celebrated May Day by a procession and various ceremonies, having and 
crowning their May Queen, and enjoying themselves greatly. There were about a 
thousand children, male and female, in the procession, dressed for a holiday, and 
probably a healthier collection of juveniles was never before seen. No spectacle in 
the city had ever given more pleasure to those who wished it prosperity. 

The electric telegraph sent its first California flash along the wires on the 22d of 
September, between San Francisco and Point Lobos, on the Pacific Coast. It was 
built by Messrs. Sweeny & Baugh, proprietors of the Merchants' Exchange, to facili- 
tate their business of ship reporting. This was the first link in those wire lungs 
which now enable the citizens of the principal cities and towns of the State to 
converse together, as if they sat side by side. In the month of October Judge Hey- 
denfeldt, of the Supreme Court, gave a decision in favor of grants by Alcaldes — the 


Other Judges concurring. This was a very important decision, for although it prob- 
ably covered many fraudulent grants, it -went far towards quieting titles and putting 
an end to certain classes of squatter difficulties. It was one step towards per- 

On the '2-lth of October the mountains spoke to the sea with a lightning flash over 
the wires from Marysville to San Francisco, a distance by the telegraph line of over 
two hundred miles. Charge for the first ten words, two dollars. Even at these 
prices the privilege of the telegraph was thought a great acquisition. 

Filibustering which had been inaugurated some years before by American adven- 
turers on the Atlantic side and around the Gulf of Mexico, took form and name here 
during this year, and received its baptism on the thirteenth of December, when the 
bark Anita sailed from San Francisco with two hundred and forty men, to join a 
small party which had already landed in Lower California under Col. Wm. Walker. 
The first party had been a mere investiture of the infant — these dressed it in long 
robes and took it to the ocean font. Although not much was effected in that 
expedition by its god-fathers and sponsors, except to chalk out on paper a new 
" Republic of Sonora," yet it was the pioneer movement which has led to the virtual 
conquest of Nicaragua by the parent of the excursion, and may yet result in completely 
revolutionizing all Central America, and supplanting its effete people and government, 
by those of greater energy, if not greater justice. It has ever been the fate of nations 
as of the lower races of animals. The weaker have given way to the stronger. 
The partition of Poland is not a solitary instance. Nearly all southern Asia has 
passed a similar ordeal. In all such changes policy has had more to do than justice, 
and strength more than right. Similar agencies may effect similar results in the five 
States of Central America. 

The Drama wjs honored on the twenty-fourth of December by the opening of the 
Metropolitan Theater, internally one of the handsomest and most comfortable theaters 
on the continent. During its first season it had a wonderful run, and the amount of 
money received during a year and a half was enormous. Nor is it strange, for 
Madame Anna Thillon, Kate Hayes, the Bateman Children, Madam Anna Bishop, 
James E. Murdock, the Monplaisir Troupe, Clothilde Thorne, Miss Heron and other 
celebrities played engagements as soon as they could be obtained. But tie greatest 
success which has yet occurred, probably, was that which was achieved by Juha 
Dean Hayne during the present year. Her four weeks' engagement was a continual 
triumph. And yet the proprietors of this splendid theater, they who owned it, lost 
their entire investment, the architect and chief stockholder being completely ruined 
by the venture. While several of the " stars " realized fortunes of from twenty to 
thirty thousand dollars each by their engagements of a few weeks at the Metropolitan, 
the projectors and builders who had added so beautiful a place of resort to the public 
places of the city, and those who catered for the public taste so lavishly in talent and 
in spectacle, saved nothing from the gross receipts. 

The city's interest in her water lots was sold on the twenty-sixth and twenty-eighth 
of December. The two sales amounted to more than one and a half millions of 
dollars. Some of these lots brought sixteen thousand dollars, although the title sold 
was only the city's interest in them after 1951. The gold dust shipped from the city 
during the year as noted by the Custom House, reached nearly fifty-five millions. 


J V 

A large amount left in private hands which could not be ascertaine iw;aotl^, but 
■which may be estimated to have exceeded five millions. There had been ■ ^\. -"iiiution 
in the production of the mines. The character of the buildings during tj;> ye. had 
been very much advanced, fire-proof brick being the prevailing kind, and th( tyle 
had much improved. Granite and freestone fronts had become common, and ele, "ce 
had been consulted as well as convenience in the architecture. The real estate o ^,i 
city was valued at about thirty millions of dollars. By the close of the year tht 3 
were eighteen chui'ches, ten public schools, fourteen fire companies, one hundred and 
sixty hotels and public houses, fifteen flowing and saw mills, nineteen banking 
houses, six military companies, and many literary, social, benevolent, religious and 
professional societies, twelve daily newspapers, and various weekly, and monthly 
publications, six theaters, a music hall, and gymnasium. Importations during the 
year amounted to almost twelve millions of dollars, duties collected over two and a 
half millions, arrivals one thousand and twenty-eight vessels, departures sixteen 
hundred and fifty-three. From this limited statement some idea may be formed of 
the progress and commerce of the city. One of the best features of that progress 
was an increase in the arrivals of ladies. The eftect of this all can appreciate. 
Woman's best eulogium is found in her influence. Without her presence there is no 
such thing as home, without home there is to a vast majority of the people, little 
which deserves the name of happiness. When at a public meeting the wife of Daniel 
O'Connell was toasted, the great orator said among other things in answer to the 
sentiment, "no man was prepared for great enterprises unless his nest was warm at 
home." As woman came, homes were formed, and men for the first time began to 
look upon California as their permanent place of abode. The beginning of 1854 saw 
San Francisco in many senses, a great city. One improvement had trod close upon 
the heels of the preceding, quite as rapidly as had misfortunes. Printing, steam, 
electricity had in turn been introduced, and on the eleventh of February of this year 
the city was lighted with coal gas for the first time. The muddy streets had been 
succeeded by planks and stone pavements, the darkness of 1849, and the, if possible, 
still greater obscurity of the oil lamps which subsequently glimmered blindingly, 
long distances apart, had passed away, forever. The clear light of the San Francisco 
Gas Companv from three miles of pipe and hundreds of burners, illuminated the 
streets and the hearts of the people. The occasion was celebrated bj' a delightful 
reunion at the Oriental Hotel. 

There ai'e no great blessings unmixed with pain, and seldom or never a time of 
great commercial and business prosperity that is not followed sooner or later by 
reverses. By March of this year the eft'ects of the large importations of the previous 
year began to be seriously felt in depreciation of prices to a ruinous rate, and in gi'eat 
financial distress. For some time this condition of trade had been foreseen, and felt 
considerably by many. A few had wisely prepared for the crisis, but by far the 
majority had held on to the hopes which the business of former years had taught 
them to entertain, and consequently not a few were ruined. As the State began to 
supply itself with breadstufFs and other provisions, and manufactures increased, much 
of the business of the city commercially had passed away, "good times" took a nap, 
high rates and rents, prices of real estate and goods decreased, and much distress 


The B "^h Mint of San Francisco commenced operations on the third of April. 
Th^" I. ^i;!* of Curtis, Perry & Ward, U. S. Assayers, had been partially rebuilt, 
anr ^m\ .sed by the U. S. Government, supplied with new machinery, and although 
alf ''ether too contracted in dimensions for the vast amount of work required, has 
V 'i^i of immense benefit to the city and State. Instead of three hundred thousand 
irf.-fers. Congress should have appropriated one million at least to build a Mint worthy 
iM the city, of the country, and of the mines whose treasures it was to turn into coin. 
In the little building appropriated now to the purpose, more coin and bars have been 
prepared for the currency, than in all the other Mints in the country, the " Mother 
Mint" of Philadelphia included. But our distance from the Federal Government is 
so great that the voice of our necessities can scarcely reach it. 

The trial of the Mexican Consul, Don Luis del Valle, before the U. S. District 
Court, for breach of the neutrality laws, in enlisting, or sending emigrants to Sonora, 
was terminated the twenty-eighth day of April by a verdict of " guilty." This trial 
with its attendant circumstances, excited much feeling and discussion. The real 
injury done by the Consul in sending away persons who preferred Sonora to California, 
could not have been much, except as a breach of international etiquette. Monsieur 
Dillon, Consul of France, was subsequently tried upon a similar charge, the jury 
disagreed, and on tlie twenty-ninth of May a 7iolle prosequi was entered by the District 
Attorney and he was discharged. With regard to the Mexican Consul, further 
proceedings were suspended. M. Dillon had claimed exemption from any obligation 
to appear in Court as a witness, in virtue of the Consular Treaty existing between 
France and the United States, refused to so appear when required by the Court, and 
was sustained eventually in that position by his own, and the American Governments. 
On the twenty-nintli day of this month, a Chinese newspaper, entitled something 
which meant Golden Hills, the Chinese name for San Francisco, and printed in 
Chinese characters, was issued. This made the fifth language which had a newspaper 
mouth-piece in San Francisco. 

Healthful as the city had proved, many persons nevertheless traveled the dark road 
whence they return not. The old grave-yards within the city had given up their 
dead, the' march of improvement had covered most of them with buildings, or cut 
streets through them. But one remained within the city limits — Yerba Buena 
Cemetery — and that already had gathered a multitude to its narrow cells, and the 
inhabitants of the living were fast approaching the silent chambers of those who lay 
there in slumbers which wake not. New and more spacious grounds suitable for a 
cemetery capable of answering the melancholy demands of a great city, became a 
necessity. Two or three persons selected and secured a tract of land toward the 
jPacific Ocean, and about three miles from the harbor, and set it apart for the sacred 
purpose. It is of quite uneven surface, hill and dale, very generally covered with 
evergreen oaks and other trees and shrubs, and from portions of it the city, and the 
Pacific are visible. This spot containing one hundred and sixty acies, was dedicated 
to the purposes of a Cemetery by name of the Lone Mountain, on the thirtieth of 
May, with appropriate ceremonies, addresses, an ode, poem, prayer and hymns. In 
allusion to the chemical decomposition and rearrangement of the particles of matter 
by which even the changed human organization may become portions of the shrubs 
and trees beneath which it is buried, the poem concluded thus: 


" From every nation, and from every clime, 

Youth, innocence and beauty gathered here. 
With springs returning warmth and joyous time, 

In renovated life shall re-appear ; 
Their voices whisper in each rustling leaf. 

Then- beauty glowing still through bud and flower, 
Like their own transiet life, as fair, as brief; 

Shall give our tottering Faith new warmth and power, 
And Hope new wings to scale that blissful shore, 
Where, Love, grown God-like, shall be faint no more." 

Since tliat time many a beloved form has been laid in that last home of our 
citizens, and many improvements, which love and veneration have dictated, have 
been made to render the place as beautiful as it is sacred and mournful. The seasons 
deck it in perpetual green, and the deep organ of old ocean rolls forth its eternal 
dirge. Its keeper is sad, beautiful, sublime Nature. 

Much trouble had been experienced for a long time in consequence of the unsettled 
state of land titles. The squatters or settlers had frequently been at loggerheads, and 
many lives lost in consequence. The feeling engendered by such a condition of 
affairs arose to such an intensity that during the month of June a regular battle 
occurred between certain squatters and a party which attempted to eject them from 
a lot claimed by Capt. Folsom, in which one of his party was killed. A few days 
afterward a woman was killed in another part of the city during one of these unhappy 
riots. This was soon followed by an organization of property holders as a special 
police for the protection of their property, and about one thousand persons enrolled 
their names as members. It is hoped that all such collisions have passed away, no 
more to be repeated, and that no similar organization will ever be required in 
consequence of disputes arising from conflicting land titles and claims. 

The social state of society had in some respects much improved, in others little or 
no better condition existed. The ruinous vice of gambling had much decreased, so 
of some other reprehensible practices. There were more homes to attract, more 
comforts, more opportunities of social intercourse and improvement. Little offenses 
and misdemeanors were more certainly punished. But great crimes quite as generally 
escaped, as in former years, at least such as legally merited capital punishment. If 
the penalty attached were known to be incarceration in the penitentiary, there might 
be conviction for crime. But almost without exception the murderer escaped. 
Technicalities, quibbles, sharp practice added to the sympathies of juries not always 
constituted of the most reliable material, and that feeling of pity for the living 
criminal which with so many banishes a sense of justice to the murdered, and to 
outraged society and law, were generally sufBcient to shield the accused whatever the 
evidence, and however heinous the crime. The transient character of those classes 
of the inhabitants who are most likely to be spectators of bloody affrays, and the 
consequent difficulty of securing their testimony, made it still more difficult to convict. 
But not always did crime go unpunished. On the twenty-eighth of June, Wm. B. 
Sheppard was found guilty of the murder of Henry C. Day, and sentenced to be 
hung on the twenty-eighth of July. The mandate of the law was carried into effect, 
Sheppard protesting his innocence. He played the part of a hero on the scaffold, 
and won the honors of " dying game." Yet he was justly punished for a deliberate 
murder. There are -svitnesses who were not present on the trial, that are now residing 


near the city, who saw the deed committed. Shepperd left a confession of his — 
innocence I Of so much value are such professions on the gallows, of just so much 
value are death-bed conversions, both, .usually, breath abd no more. 

The fire-proof brick oflace of the "Alta California" newspaper having been 
purchased for the round sum of nearly fifty thousand dollars in scrip, for a Hall of 
Kecords, was opened for that purpose on the nineteenth of July. This is one of the 
very few evidences of any value received by the city for all of its vast expenditures. 
About this time the strong opposition felt by many to the great influx of Chinese, 
received new strength from the dreadful condition in which many of them reached 
the port. Whole cargoes of them — or rather such as lived to reach the bay — were 
landed at Goat Island, where the mortality was very great. The disease which 
caused such wholesale destruction, was the scurvy. The horrors of the African slave 
trade seem to have been reproduced on board some of the miserable old hulks which 
left China loaded with these wretched creatures, bound for California. 

To the great number of churches already erected, were soon to be added two 
synagogues, the corner-stone of the first being laid on the twenty-third of July. 
A House of Refuge having become necessary, the Supervisors made a movement 
toward one by purchasing a lot of ground to the west of the Mission, for an immense 
price. This done, and the cash or scrip paid and divided, the whole subject was left 
to fall asleep where it slumbers still. The Plaza was inclosed with a handsome iron 
fence, and the ground considerably improved, leveled, and planted with trees and 
shrubs. The election which occurred on the seventh of September exhibited a heavy 
vote, 10,883 being cast in the city. On the first of October the Yankee Blade 
steamship, was lost near Point Conception, and many of her passengers were drowned. 
Soon after, the city was thrown into another intense excitement, by the discovery 
that Harry Meiggs, "honest Harry," who had held ofiice in the Council for years, and 
who had possessed an enviable reputation as a man of integrity, energy, enterprise 
and benevolence, had escaped by sea with his family and brother just elected 
Controller of the city, leaving behind him several hundred thousand dollars of forged 
city warrants which he had hypothecated and for which he had received heavy 
amounts of cash. Harry made his way to South America where he resided when 
last heard from. 

Col. Walker having been indicted and tried for having fitted out an armed 
expedition to Lower California, etc., was acquitted on the nineteenth of October. 
This ended that filibustering tragedy and farce. The assessed property of the city at 
this date was over $34,000,000. The schools at this time were in a flourishing 
condition, the children by the census amounting to 3,780, of ages entitling them to 
the privileges of scholars. Much interest was exhibited at this period in favor of 
inducing immigration, and several meetings for the purpose took place. But they 
resulted eventually in nothing more than resolutions. The last event of importance 
of the year 1854, was the decree by the Board of U. S. Land Commissioners, that 
San Francisco was a " Pueblo " under the Jlexican Government, and as such entitled 
to the lands within its limits, etc. Many hailed this decision as their salvation, others 
denounced it as a fraud, although indorsed by the Commissioners. Upon a question 
respecting which learned lawyers disagree, and differ so widely,' a non-professional 
may be excused for expressing no opinion, especially as it could have no beneficial 


effect, be it what it might That Commission has confirmed several claims which 
cover partly the same territory, but their defenders say in their support that their 
decisions are not inconsistent, as they only determine between the United States and 
the claimants, and not between the claimants themselves, as to the respective merits 
of their titles. Thus the United States are relieved from the suits, and Limantour, 
Bolton, Barron & Co., tind others, are left to settle the matter as best they can. 
Joy to them. So ends the year, many things for which to be glad, many to regret, 
fortunes lost, some made, gold passing through the city by millions, yet many persons 
in want, many formerly rich, feeling now much poorer, and all hoping that the bottom 
of that deep slough — " hard times " — has been reached. Upon the whole the city 
has considerably improved in appearance and substantial progress. Yet many are 
disappointed, for the fast days, prices and business of former years for which they 
have hoped, have not returned, and it is hard to yield a cherished idea, and bury a 
beloved hope. So along the road of tfme travel people and city, leaving the worn 
track of the old year with its ruts and broken pavements, and looking ahead for the 
avenue opening into the new year, which fancy, hope and desire have laid among 
pleasant scenes, and paved like a new Jerusalem, with gold, gold, gold. 

During January, 1855 the new Merchants' Exchange, a very beautiful building, 
erected on Battery, between "Washington and Jackson Streets, was opened. Subse- 
quently the United States Circuit and District Courts were located in its principal 
rooms, and there their sessions are now held. A great excitement caused in the city 
by reports of exceedingly rich gold discoveries at the Kern River mines, reached its 
climax during the month, and the bubble, like the Gold Bluff exaggerations, exploded, 
leaving many disappointed. Rumor is as great a liar now as she was represented to 
be by Ovid in his time. The mines proved to be very poor, and hundreds lost money, 
and some their lives, in consequence of the hopes excited by the false reports of their 

On the seventeenth of February, begun the greatest financial excitement ever experi- 
enced in the city. On that day commenced a " run " upon Page, Bacon & Co., in 
consequence of reports received from the East. On the twenty-second they suspended. 
This firm had for years done the leading banking business of the city, and the closing 
of their doors created an intense excitement. It caused a run on several other 
banking houses, and on the twenty-third Adams & Co., Wells, Fargo & Co., Robinson 
& Co.^and Wright & Co., suspended payment. The public mind was in a furor in 
consequence. Indignation, condemnation, discussion and law suits innumerable 
resulted. Arrangements were made by which Page, Bacon & Co. resumed on the 
twenty-ninth of March, but after keeping open a few weeks, they were compelled 
again to close in consequence of the conduct of the House of Page & Bacon of St. 
Louis, Mo., with which they were connected in business relations. Wells, Fargo & Co. 
soon resumed, and have continued in successful operation ever since. Many of the 
creditors of the other houses lost the entire amount of their deposits, not a few of 
them being thus deprived of the whole of their fortunes. The miserable uncertainty, 
injustice and partiality of the laws touching banking insolvency and assignments, 
saying nothing of the practice of our courts and lawyers, have succeeded in expending 
in fees for litigation, and in shielding roguery and embezzlers, all, or nearly aU the 
great assets of these establishments, so that while a few have saved themselves, and 


lawyers and others have grown rich from the spoils, the honest depositors have 
generally lost all. 

During April several jobbing and some importing houses failed, one of the latter 
with liabilities exceeding $200,000. By this time through such and other causes, 
business became paralyzed, and hard times sat like a blight upon the city. The new 
charter for the city had been passed by the Legislature, and some hope was entertained 
that under it the city's interest would be better secured, and its expenses greatly 
lessened. This really proved true. About this time the ship Charmer sailed for 
New York, loaded principally with California productions, wheat, barley and flour. 
The tables seemed now turned, and instead of importing breadstuffs, from the East, 
the State was in a condition to supply a surplus to other countries. The Branch 
Mint during June was coining at the rate of two and a half millions of dollars per 
month, and assaying weekly one million two hundred thousand dollars of gold. 
Notwithstanding so much treasure was in the city, and so much coin issued from the 
Mint, business men in great numbers went by the board. Within two and a half 
months there were fifty-six applications for the benefit of the insolvency law, with an 
excess of liabilities over assets, even estimated by the bankrupts themselves, of over 
three millions of dollars. This was one coloring of a gloomy picture. 

The Bolton and Barron claim to the land of a great portion of the city, was con- 
firmed by the United States Land Commission, on the fifth of June. Much excite- 
ment, in consequence, resulted among the settlers ; meetings were held, resolutions 
passed, and a determination expressed to raise a fund and fight the claim before the 
United States Courts to the last. The council voted, on the 20th, to purchase from 
the United States its title to all lands within the boundaries of the city, and to grant 
it to persons in actual possession. The Mayor entered the lands at the Land Ofiice 
in Benicia, for that purpose. Another immigration excitement, which effected nothing, 
existed during the month, and an Immigration Society was formed. 

An Italian newspaper was issued during July or August, thus giving utterance to 
another nationality. I. C. Woods, of the firm of Adams & Co., left for Australia 
secretly, in the month of August. Many believe that he took with him a large 
amount of the funds of Adams & Co., known to have been in their vaults during the 
night previous to their suspension. An election, under the new charter, was held on 
the 5th of September, when the vote of the city and county reached 12,724, that of 
the city being about 1 1,700. The steamship Uncle Sam, of the Nicaragua Line, 
reached the city September 14th, with the cholera on board. One hundred and 
twenty persons had died on the passage, out of six hundred and fifty on board, and a 
large number died after the vessel reached the port. But the disease did not spread 
in the city. 

The sale of the "City Slip Property," which had occurred in December, 1853, 
and which had brought a million of dollars, was declared, by Judge Norton, invalid, 
and the city was held Hable to refund the amount received. This was a shock to 
the city's credit. From its treasury, between October 1st, 1849, and July 1st, 1855, 
$4,324,650 19 had been disbursed. People wondered where it had all gone. 

The English, French and Sardinians in the city celebrated the 26th of November, 
by a grand Fete at South Park, in honor to the -success of the " Allies" in the Crimea. 
It was chalked out for a splendid aflFair. An immense tent was erected, decorated 


Tvitli flowers, evergreens, flags, inscriptions and views of Crimean scenes, and all which 
music,' religious ceremonies by the priesthood, speeches, etc., could do, was done. 
Men-of-war anchored opposite the grounds, salutes were fired from on board and from 
an eminence near by, named, for the occasion, the "Malakofl"," and everything went har- 
moniously until during the repast, when a band of rowdies created a disturance, tore 
down the flags, destroyed the dinner, broke the dishes, and broke up the celebration. 
A viler outrage upon a peaceable meeting was never committed. It was a disgrace 
to the American name, although committed by the vilest of the vile. 

The " consular difliculty," arising out of the trials of the Mexican and French 
Consuls, before alluded to, was settled on the 30th of November, in accordance with 
the terms agreed upon by the French and American Governments. The United 
States ship Independence saluted the French ship Ajnbuscade, in reparation to M. 
Dillon, the tricolor was again hoisted over his consulate, and thus amity was restored, 
never, we hope, to be again interrupted. 

Some idea of the crushing nature of business, during the last year or two, may be 
inferred from the disheartening fact that, during the year 1855, one hundred and 
ninety-seven persons applied to the courts for the benefit of the insolvency act. 
Many of these failures were for large amounts, and although a large portion of the 
losses had to be borne by persons out of the State, the eflects in the city were 
very serious and discouraging. Business reached a point of depression which 
had never been felt before. The city's head was bowed, and the whole business com- 
munity tottered in consequence of the reverses which led to such results. And yet 
more than forty-five millions of gold were shipped from the city during the year, 
besides all which went by private hands, and which doubtless amounted to several 
millions, although not entered at the Custom House. Over thirty-one thousand per- 
sons arrived during the year. The arrivals of vessels from foreign ports were one 
thousand one hundred and sixty-three. Seventy-two millions pounds of flour were 
shipped for markets out of the State. The entire exports exceeded four millions of 
dollars in value. Freight, paid upon goods from foreign ports, exceeded four millions 
of dollars. During the year, two hundred and sixty-seven marriages occurred in the 
city ; seventy-two applications for divorce were made, and forty-one petitions for a 
dissolution of the silken bands were granted. Instead of silken bands, perhaps the 
term gossamer were more appropriate. Nearly all these suits were commenced by 
the wives of the disagreeing pair. Comment is left to others. During the year, the 
losses by the various fires which occurred, amounted to over two millions of dollars. 
The enrolled and licensed tunnage, at the close of the year, amounted to 79,319 tuns. 
The coinage in the mint, for two years, was over $30,000,000. Arrivals of persons 
in three years, 117,292 ; departures, 76,407 — leaving an addition of population of 

A large sale of three hundred and nine lots of land, belonging to the estate of 
Captain Folsom, deceased, occurred on the 10th of January, 1856, which brought 
§607,695. A little while afterwards, the Limantour claim was confirmed by the 
United States Land Commission. On this immense track, which covei-s nearly or 
quite two-fifths of the surface of the city, perhaps twenty thousand persons dwell. 
The decision created an intense excitement among a large portion of them, some of 
whom had purchased their lots several times over, being covered over bv various 


titles besides that of Limantour. An excitement of a different kind occurred on the 
sixteenth, when the people of the city were shaken from their propriety, and some 
from their beds, by an unmannerly earthquake, which created no little terror. It was 
by far the heaviest which had been experienced, and was severe enough to throw 
down some parapet walls and crack others. Had the shocks lasted as many minutes 
as they did seconds, there is no telling how great would have been the destruction. 
It commenced by a loud report, which sounded like an explosion of a steam boiler, 
or magazine of powder, and immediately the rumbling and trembling motion com- 
menced. It occurred in the latter part of the night, and pretty effectually aroused 
the people from their slumbers. The shock was more severely felt in those parts of 
the city which had been built on the new land, made where the waters of the harbor 
had previously flowed. The fright created was, however, greater than the dam- 
age done. 

A Mormon newspaper, called the "Western Standard," was issued on the 23d of 
Februarj'. Nearly every sect, party, profession and interest, has now its editorial 
vindicator. There seems little room, henceforth, for any new newspaper enterprise, 
unless some enterprising person, emulous of editorial honors, shall start " The Putty 
Prvces Current." Here's an opening for genius. 

A suit, which had been instituted by Henry M. Naglee, Eeceiver of the effects of 
Adams & Co., against Alfred A. Cohen, previously appointed Receiver, was decided 
on the 8th of March, against the defendant, for $269,046. Under the operation of 
this verdict, Cohen was held in jail until discharged by the Supreme Court, about the 
close of September. The yearly amount of correspondence between the State and 
the great abroad, may be conceived from the fact that 257,175 letters were sent from 
the city to the Eastern States during the first three months of this present year, and 
216,175 were received. The least postage on each of these letters was ten cents — 
more than three times the amount charged the citizens of the other thirty States for 
their correspondence with each other. But California is used to these oppressions in 
the shape of onerous and unjust discriminations against her. Distance may lend 
enchantment to the view, but in the instance of our own geographical position, its 
enchantment is not of the most favorable kind. 

In April, the traveling facilities of the city and State were diminished by the 
stoppage of the Nicaragua Une of steamers. General Walker having seized and con- 
fiscated the steamers and other property of the Transit Company in Nicaragua, the 
communication was broken up, and the ships ceased running, with the exception of 
the Sierra Nevada, which, being under the control of, or owned by, Messrs. Garrison 
and Morgon, has continued her monthly trips. The grand Bulkhead project came 
before the council and the citizens during this month and created much discussion, 
being severely handled by the press and the public generally, though strongly urged 
by a company formed for the purpose of obtaining the grant to build this wall along 
the front of the city. The opposition had the effect of defeating the proposed 

But all these causes of excitement were soon to sink into comparatively nothing- 
ness before an event and its consequences, which tore up the very foundations of 
society in the city and State, and fell like a thunderbolt upon quiet people here and 
elsewhere. On the 14th of May, Mr. James King, of William, Editor of the 


" Evening Bulletin," was attacked in Montgomery Street, while on Ms way home, by 
James P. Casey, and shot through his left breast with a pistol ball. Mr. King 
lingered until the 20th, when he died. Casey had served out a term of imprison- 
ment in Sing Sing, and made the statement of the fact in the " Bulletin" the occasion 
and excuse for killing the editor. This execrable act was followed by an excitement 
such as had never before existed in the city. 

A desperate effort was immediately made by the crowd to seize Casey. "Hang 
the murderer !" "Hang him! hang him!" sounded from all sides. But the police 
had succeeded in conveying him to the jail. The Mayor called out the militaiy corcf' 
panies, some of whom were stationed in and on the jail ; a citizens' posse was sum- 
moned and assembled in front, and, with ai-ms, guarded the building. Many of the 
enraged citizens were for attacking the jail at once. But cooler counsels prevailed, and 
a surer method was subsequently adopted for obtaining possession of the prisoner. 
The nucleus of a Vigilance Committee was formed that night, and its numbers 
increased rapidly. On Sunday, the 19th, the Committee appeared in the streets in 
great force, armed and formed into companies and battalions. They took possession 
of all the avenues leading to the County Jail, and the points which commanded it ; 
arranged a strong force in front, along Broadway ; placed a cannon directly opposite 
the jail door, and made a demand upon the Sheriff for Casey, who was confined 
within. After some delay, the deputies of the Committee were allowed to enter the 
jail and take possession of Casey, who was conducted to a hack in the street, and 
strongly guarded, was taken to the head-quarters of the Vigilance Committee, in 
Sacramento Street. Subsequently, Charles Cora, who had been indicted for the 
murder of General Eichardson, United States Marshal, was also taken from the jail, 
and, in like manner, removed to the Committee Rooms. The whole scene was a very 
quiet, yet very exciting, determined and fearful one. 

On the twenty-second, the funeral of Mr. King took place. The people of the 
city which had been draped in mourning, immediately upon the announcement of 
his death, attended in great numbers. While the funeral ceremonies were being 
performed in the church, Casey and Cora, who had previously been tried by the 
Vigilance Committee and sentenced to be executed, were hung from the windows of 
the Committee Rooms, in presence of a vast multitude. An immense procession 
followed the remains of Mr. King to his final resting place in Lone Mountain 
Cemetery. Subsequently the Committee arrested many other persons against whom 
charges of crimes and misdemeanors had been made. From twenty-five to thirty of 
these were either sent away, or ordered to leave by the Committee. The charge 
against many of them was that they had been engaged in ballot-box stuffing, and 
other election frauds. Generally they were men for whom personally but little 
sympathy could be felt. There were those, however, who opposed the Committee's 
action and existence as a dangerous exercise of power unauthorized, unconstitutional 
and illegal, and as subversive of all the guaranties of republican government, and 
who argued that the arrests, trials and punishments infficted by the Committee upon 
the humblest, or most guilty, being illegal, were acts against the rights of all, 
dangerous as a precedent, and in themselves crimes against the public, and treason 
against the government of State and Nation. On the other hand, the Committee 
and their sympathizers replied that, they were the people, the public ; that the people 



possessed the inherent right to revolutionize when the government failed to protect 
them, and to correct outside of the law great evils which the law through the courts 
did not, or could not remedy. They declared that the evils which existed could not 
be longer borne, and that no way to abate them existed, except by means such as 
they were employing. 

Meanwhile the Grand Jury had found true bills against Edward McGowan and 
Peter Wightman, as accessories to the murder of James King. The police force 
were immediately in hot pursuit of them. The police of the Vigilance Committee 
were also exerting themselves to the utmost for the same pm'pose. But all in vain. 
To this day no reliable information has reached the public, except the report of 
McGowan's hanng been seen in Santa Barbara, and even that many do not believe. 
That "white hat" disappeared as mysteriously as a "little joker" beneath the 
cabalistic words of some necromancer, and its locality is as uncertain as is the burial 
place of De Soto. On the twenty-ninth of June the third legal execution took place 
in the yard of the County Jail, upon the person of Nicholas Graham, convicted some 
time before, of the crime of murder. He was a young man, and had killed a 
companion on one of the steamers lying at one of the city wharves, as he averred, 
while under the influence of liquor. A terrible penalty he paid for his intemperance. 
One of the persons who had been arrested by the Vigilance Committee, was the 
noted pugilist Yankee Sullivan, whose fights, victories and defeats had made him 
notorious the world over. Though brave enough for a milling match, he had not the 
moral courage to endure the dangers which he imagined surrounded him as he lay 
incarcerated in the rooms of the Committee. He undoubtedly believed that he was 
to be hung, or sent back to Australia. He chose to die by his o^vn hand rather than 
risk the fate which he feared might be intended for him. On the morning of May 
thirty-first, his guards on entering his cell, found him dead, lying partly on his bed, 
bathed in blood, his left arm above the elbow disfigured with a terrible gash. Alone 
in his cell, he had done the fearful deed, and his soul had in silence passed away, let 
us hope, forgiven even after the commission of the act at which humanity shudders. 
Who knows but in that dreadful agony which preceded and followed the fatal blow, 
his soul may have been purified and forgiven. 

The exports of treasure during the month of May, amounted to $4,575,408. In 
shipping the arrivals amounted to 38,789 tuns. Thus the great oracles of wealth 
still poured their current through the heart of the State, although the business of the 
city had neaWy reached a stand-still. Gold came and went, ships came, discharged, 
spread their white wings and departed. Goods came, were landed, disposed of, some 
here, the freight paid somehow, and remittances for them made, although the general 
report and conversation was that, there was no business doing. Indeed little else was 
discussed except the subject of the Vigilance Committee, and with many, their 
relations with it superceded all other occupations. 

On the fourth of June the Proclamation of Governor Johnson appeared in the 
newspapers, together with the General Orders of Gen. Sherman. By the Governor's 
Proclamation the County of San Francisco was declared in a state of insurrection, 
and the Militia of the Third, Fourth and Fifth Divisions were ordered to hold 
themselves in readiness to operate for suppressing the insurrection. Gen. Sherman's 
orders called for volunteers, and enlistments began in various parts of the city and 


in other places. Some companies were mustered into the service of the State. 
Meanwhile the Committee put their head-quarters in a state of defense, erected a 
breastwork of gunny-bags filled with sand, in front, planted cannon inside, made an 
arsenal, armory and fort of the building itself, kept guards day and night on the 
breastwork, on the roof, at the entrances, and took every precaution against a surprise, 
as well as for defense in case of attack. Enlistments and drills during this time, 
were progressing under the Law and Order party, and many anticipated battle and 

In the midst of all this excitement a new Bulkhead project was brought before the 
Council, and passed before the Aldermen, in the face of a most unequivocal 
condemnation by the press and the public. However it was arrested in its course by 
an injunction upon the Board of Assistant Aldermen, and thus defeated. It would 
scarcely have passed that body even without the injunction. Gen. Sherman tendered 
his resignation on the ninth of June, and the Governor appointed Volney E. Howard 
in his stead. An effort was made by parties not connected with the Vigilance 
Committee, to bring about an understanding between the Governor and the 
Committee, the withdrawal of His Excellency's Proclamation, and a settlement of the 
exciting Vigilance question. The attempt failed. About the same time the Address 
of the Committee to the public was published. On the tenth, eleventh and fourteenth, 
large numbers of people assembled in public meetings to express their sentiments 
upon the exciting questions of the time. At the date last named, the meeting was 
called for an expression of feeling by those sympathizing with the purposes of the 
Committee, although not belonging to the organization. It was a very large 
assemblage, at which several prominent lawyers made addresses, approving the acts 
and purposes of the Committee, a sentiment which was indorsed by the meeting in 
a series of resolutions. Sometime previous there had been held a large meeting on 
the Plaza by those opposing the Committee, at which strong ground was taken in 
favor of the constitution, laws, courts, trial by jury, right of the writ of habeas 
corpus, and as which the Committee was severely denounced. By the twentieth of 
the month that organization claimed to have six thousand enrolled members and four 
thousand muskets. This was doubtless an exaggeration. But that they w^ere strong 
in men and arms could not be doubted. An occasion was near at hand when this 
was to be made manifest. 

On the twenty-first of June an attempt was made by a party of the police force of 
the Committee, under the command of a person named Hopkins, to' arrest J. R. 
Moloney. In doing so, Hopkins and Judge Terry of the Supreme Court, came in 
collision, and during the scuflBe, which ensued, Hopkins was stabbed in the neck by 
the Judge. Moloney, Judge Terry and the rest of their party took refuge in the 
armory on the corner of Dupont arid Jackson Streets, near which the struggle had 
taken place. Immediately the armory was besieged by members of the Committee. 
In a very short time that organization appeared in the streets in squads, companies 
and battalions, armed, and in a very little while all the armories of the Law and 
Order party, were surrounded, and commanded by infantry, horse and artillery. The 
persons of Judge Terry and his companions were demanded, and after some delay, 
there being no chance of making available resistance, they surrendered jjrisoners. 
All the arms in the armory were likewise taken possession of by the Committee's 


forces. All the persons found in the other armories were likewise taken prisoners, 
and together with the arms taken to the Committee Rooms. All opposition to the 
Committee in the city, seemed now powerless. 

The arrest of Judge Terry and the circumstances which led to and attended it 
created a perfect furor. The embers and flames were lashed into a sea of fire. Both 
sides were raging, one demanding the destruction of the Committee and the release 
of Terry, many of the other party calling for his execution. In the midst of all this 
excitement, the Executive of the Committee commenced the trial of Judge Terry. 
It was long and tedious to all parties. The doubt which for a long time existed as to 
Hopkins' chance of recovery, upon which it seemed to be generally conceded, the 
life of Terry hung, was very exciting to the public, very painful to the friends of the 
Judge. Hopkins eventually recovered, Terry's trial was finally ended, he was 
declared guiltv of some of the charges preferred, but was nevertheless unconditionally 
discharged by the Committee on the seventh of August, with an expression that he 
ought to resign his position of Judge. Previous to this time, viz : on the twenty- 
fourth of July, Dr. Andrew Randall had been shot in the bar-room of the St. 
Nicholas Hotel, by one Hetherington who had repeatedly threatened to take his life. 
Dr. Randall lingered one or two days in an unconscious condition, when he died. 
The killing was a cool, predetermined murder. The Committee arrested Hetherington, 
tried him, pronounced him guilty, and condemned him to death. He had some years 
before killed Dr. Baldwin under circumstances of great barbarity. On the thirtieth 
of July, Hetherington, and one Brace, who had been a party nearly two years before, 
to the murder of Capt. West near the Mission, and who was supposed subsequently 
to have murdered his companion in the crime, one Marion, in Alameda County, 
were taken from their rooms by the Committee, to a scaffold erected in Davis 
Street, and there executed by hanging. On the scaffold Hetherington was cool and 
self-possessed, and attempted to make a speech, but was soon interrupted by Brace, 
whose expressions and conduct were of the most shocking nature possible to be 
conceived. Total depravity seemed virtue compared with his moral perceptions, and 
character, as illustrated by himself on that fearful platform. 

On the eighteenth of August the Vigilance Committee appeared in force at a 
Grand Parade and Review, preparatory to a dissolution of the organization. About 
three thousand men appeared under arms, formed in line, were reviewed by their 
officers and the Executive Committee, and afterward paraded through the principal 
streets of the city. This was their last appearance as an organized force, in public. 
Soon afteiTvard their rooms were opened to the public, and many thousands visited 
them. At one period afterward it was feared that they would again be assembled for 
the purpose of rescuing two of their number from the operations of the law. Messrs. 
Durkee and Rand had been indicted by the U. S. Grand Jury for piracy, in taking 
forcibly from a small vessel in the bay, in obedience to the orders of the Committee, 
certain arms belonging to the State, on their way to the city. They were tried, and 
acquitted on the eleventh of September, and thus for the present all fears of a 
collision between them and the authorities passed away. 

Since then few things worthy of particular notice, have occurred. Nearly all 
other subjects of discussion and interest, have been submerged in the excitement of 
politics. The candidates, the platforms, the parties, their principles, their calculations 


and their abuse of each other form the principal staple of current discussion, and 
little relief can be anticipated ere the election in November. 

After the preceding paragraph was written, a vile act was committed which 
deserved and received the reprobation of all correct minds. On the morning of 
Sunday, October fifth, an efiigy of Rev. Dr. Scott, Pastor of Calvary Chm'ch was 
found suspended by the neck in front of that place of worship. Dr. Scott had seen 
fit to express his opinions in regard to certain events that had taken place in the city, 
and it is supposed that in consequence this wanton outrage, which disgraced no one 
except its cowardly perpetrators, was committed. To hang a man in effigy, by 
daylight, is but a poor, weak, and contemptible way of expressing the vilest of the 
malignant passions. An act of the kind is doubly despicable when done as was this, 
like a theft, or robbery, in the dark, by persons lost to all decency, except the shame 
of letting their personalities be known. Such a deed ranks with writing abusive 
anonymous letters, poisoning of cisterns, or using the dagger in a dark alley. The 
result of this act has been to crowd the Eeverend gentleman's Church since then, 
with greater congregations than filled it before. Oppression and persecution are not 
suited to the sentiments of a fi-ee people. 

The arrivals of passengers during the first three-quarters of the present year have 
reached 23,511, the departures 15,905, leaving an addition to the population of 
7,606. This is a small increase from that source. The necessity of an avenue from 
the Eastern States overland by means of a railroad, is evident in this fast, as in many 
others. California and San Francisco cannot expect an equal share with their sister 
States and cities, of the emigration from the Atlantic States, while only the present 
facihties exist. Around Cape Horn, and over the plains are too long, as well as too 
expensive. By steamship across two oceans and over the territory of a foreign, 
half-civilized nation, territory at all times subject to dangerous diseases, epidemic and 
contagious, and to the dangers of warfare and riots, is not only a passage of risk and 
accident, but of still too much time, and far too expensive for those very classes 
which the city and the country most particularly, need, the laboring, honest men of 
moderate means, who have families to bring, with whom a few hundred dollars are 
the result of as many years toil; and the month spent on the journey is an additional 
loss not easy to be borne. To a railroad uniting the Pacific and Atlantic territories, 
must the public of this city and the State look as the only reliable route through 
which the broad, rich lands of the State are to be peopled and made productive, 
manufactories erected, and the whole country, city and State, placed on a basis of 
permanent prosperity, such as by nature they seem entitled to enjoy. 

The operations of the Mint, for the last two yeai-s, and the first three-quarters of 
the present, show the following total results of the coinage. In 1854, over nine 
millions of dollars, more than five and a half millions of which were in bars. In 
1855, over twenty-one and a half millions, three and one-third millions and over 
being in bars. During the current year the coinage has been nearly twenty-four 
millions, of which bars have a httle exceeded three millions. During the last and 
present years, the coinage of silver has averaged about one hundred and seventy 
thousand dollars, exhibiting a small annual increase. The total of coinage for the 
three years exceeds fifty-five millions of dollars. At times the operations of the 
Mint have been very much impeded by a scarcity of acids. This, added to the 


inadequate size of tlie Mint, lias curtailed the amount of the coinage. Yet it has 
reached a figure sufficient to warrant in the estimation of all reasonable men, the 
construction of a much larger and more commodious building. 

Thus in as limited space as possible, a sketch of the history of San Francisco has 
been given. The theme is one upon which the writer could delight to linger, full as 
it is of most stirring incidents, phases of life and colorings of character, to be found 
in real life, perhaps no where else. But time for this, was limited, as intimated in 
the preface; and besides, in such a rushing community as ours, he who would be read, 
must make his writings short. Those who have watched for six or seven years, the 
city's growth, physically, morally and socially, scarcely need the aid of what has here 
been written. But to the stranger, and him whose residence here dates but recently, 
the facts stated will serve to give a general, and as nearly as possible, correct idea of 
the origin, growth and importance of a young American city, destined yet to be the 
grand metropolis of the Pacifig, rivaling perhaps in riches and renown the great 
ones of antiquity, the greater ones of modern times. 


We purpose in the following pages to give a | 
brief glance at tlie principal public institutions, 
and many of the private establishments of San 
Francisco, with such details as we may deem of 
interest or a reference to the pages of this work 
where the same may be found. 

As first in importance and public estimation, 
we shall commence with the subject of 

Education and the Public Schools. 

From the earliest period at which this Depart- 
ment attracted public attention in San Francisco, 
it has properly been deemed one of its most im- 
portant interests, and though sometimes inefB- 
ciently, has always been better sustained than 
any other branch of the city government. It 
has been deemed the pride of our metropolis, 
and with commendable liberality its citizens have 
cheerfully paid the self-imposed and heavy taxa- 
tion required for its support. 

The salaries allowed Teachers have been as 
generous as circumstances would allow, and their 
payment, though sometimes long delayed, has 
always been finally provided for. 

Our subsequent remarks will exhibit the 
Schools in a prosperous state, so far as the disci- 
pline and system is concerned ; but requiring a 
persistent and judicious economy in the manage- 
ment of the resources of the department, to pre- 
serve its efBciency and protect it from fearful 
pecuniary embarrassment. 

For the present high character of the depart- 
ment, it is in no small measure indebted to Jno. 
C. Pelton, Esq., the present worthy Superintend- 
ent, who as the pioneer in the Free School en- 
terprise in this city and State, gave it a pro- 
gressive impulse, which it still maintains. 

The system of administration is in many res- 
pects similar to those of Boston or New York. 
There is a Superintendent, chosen by the people 
at large, and a Board of School Directors, con- 
sisting of one from each election district elected 
once in two years. To this Board is confided 
the entire management of the Schools, appoint- 
ment of Teachers, selection of studies, disci- 

pline etc., with the complete control of the re- 
sources assigned by law for the support of the 
schools. Within their appropriate sphere the 
Board of Education is independent of, and in no 
way accountable to, any other branch of the 

The resQurces of the Board of Education are 
derived from a tax of thirty-five cents on each 
one hundred dollars — the maximum allowed by 
law — and the sum received from the Treasury as 
the pro rata of this county from the income of 
the State school fund. From both these sources 
there will be reahzed, the coming fiscal year, 
about $102,00t) — a sum entirely inadequate to 
sustain the present scale of expenditure, and 
meet the appropriations for the sinking fund, 
chargeable upon the revenue. The citizens in 
addition to the heavy taxation with which they 
are burdened, authorized a loan deemed to be 
ample for the objects contemplated, and they 
now, perhaps justly, require from the Board such 
application of the annual revenue as will gradu- 
ally liquidate the debt, without the substitution 
of another. 

The city, principally through the loan referred 
to, is the owner of four school house sites and 
buildings, viz: — The Union Street School — a 
brick house, well constructed and admirably 
adapted to its purposes. About four hundred 
pupils in the Grammar, Intermediate and Prima- 
ry Departments under the charge of Wm. Ham- 
mell, Esq., as Principal, attend this school ; the 
commodious brick at the corner of Francisco and 
Stockton Streets, is occupied in the same manner, 
and has nearly the same number of scholars, 
F. E. Dunne, Esq., Prmcipal ; the brick building 
at the corner of Stockton and Bush Streets, Jas. 
Denman, Esq., Principal, with about three hun- 
dred pupils in the diflerent departments ; and the 
school house at the Laguna, with about two 
hundred pupils in the several divisions, J. C. 
MorreU, Esq., Prmcipal ;— the latter, although the 
first owned by the city, is the smallest and most 
inconvenient of aU. 

Tl jre is in addition to the above named, ten 



buildings leased for school purposes, in three of 
which are taught Grammar Schools, to wit: — 
The Powell Street School, formerly occupied by 
the San Francisco Academy, accommodates a 
Grammar and Intermediate Schools numbering 
about three hundred children, A. Holmes, Esq., 
temporary Principal. The Primary Department 
of this school occupies a frame building on 
"Washington Street, used in 1849 by J. C. Pelton, 
Esq., (now Superintendent,) who estabUshed the 
first public school on the Pacific Coast. The 
school thus established, now known as the Pow- 
ell Street School, has continued to be a most 
flourishing and important one. The school on 
Hampton Place, Jno. Swett, Esq., Principal, with 
about four hundred pupils in all the departments. 
The school at the Nonantum House, Mission 
Street, H. P. Carlton, Esq., Principal — this being 
badly located and not well attended will proba- 
bly be discontinued. There is also the Union 
Grammar, or High School, in the building on 
Powell Street, heretofore known as Doct. Bor- 
ring's Church. About ninety pupils promoted 
from the grammar schools attend this school; 
M. E. Holmes is the Principal. Considerable dis- 
satisfaction has been expressed in regard to the 
establishment of this school, and earnest efibrts 
win be made to discontinue it, which aided by 
the necessity for retrenchment, wfU perhaps be 
successfiil. The Board here recently established 
an Evening School, which is certainly equal in 
importance to any of the others ; it is attended 
by about three hundred young men and boys, 
ranging from thirty down to ten years of age, dis- 
qualified by age or prevented by their daily avo- 
cations from attending the day schools. A small 
monthly payment secures to the former the ad- 
vantages of the very hberal course of studies 
prescribed at this institution. 

The whole number of pupils in attendance at 
the public schools is near four thousand, consist- 
ing of about equal numbers of each sex. By 
the School Law pupilage is from four to eighteen 
years of age. 

It has been observed by persons competent to 
form an opinion on the subject, that the pupils of 
our public schools evince an extraordinary dis- 
position and a ready facility in the acquisition of 
knowledge and exhibit a degree of proficiency 
in the various studies pursued, certainly not sur- 
passed if equaled in any other city of the Union. 
While on this subject, we avail ourselves of the 
remarks of a talented female Teacher, whose 
ample experience, in other fields favorable for 

observation, lends great weight to her conclu- 
sions, she says: — "One peculiar feature to be 
marked in the children attending these schools is 
their healthful appearance. Their robust propor- 
tions, clear complexions, and excess of animal 
spirits, give full evidence that the bracing chmate 
of San Francisco is highly favorable to the growth 
and development of the physical nature of child- 
ren, and if properly trained, the mind, from very 
sympathy, must be susceptible of large culture, 
giving fair promise for the future of California. 
Perhaps in no city in any part of the world are 
there children brought together with such di- 
versity of habits, creeds, thoughts and feelings, 
but with the ready adaptation and quick assimi- 
lation of childhood these destructive traits grad- 
ually pass away, they catch the impress of the 
prevailing tone and when they enter upon the 
responsible duties of life, will prove themselves 
Americans in heart and Americans in action. 
All ranks in society send their children to these 
schools, hence, if for no other reason, they should 
be exalted to the highest point of excellence, 
that the rich and the poor may alike, draw their 
intellectual sustenance from the same fountain. 
How important, then, that the teachers should 
be experienced, competent and responsible, that 
the instruction imparted be sohd and practical, 
and that morality and refinement here find a 

As a part of the system, the Board have estab- 
hshed a Normal School, attended weekly by the 
Teachers and others interested in the subject of 
education. It bids fair, properly conducted, to 
become a useful adjunct to the department, tend- 
ing, as it does, to the mutual improvement of the 

In closing Our remarks on this subject, we 
earnestly desire to impress upon the citizens the 
great importance of the "Night School." It is 
ably conducted and well attended, and while it 
is an object of especial interest and benefit to 
the youth of the city, it should receive the fos- 
tering support aud countenance of the citizens. 
Gentlemen of standing, fathers and guardians, 
should make it a point to visit it, and thus hold 
up the hands of the Teachers, and cheer on the 
Board in their most commendable efforts to ex- 
tend the benefits of education to an unportant 
class, who otherwise would be in a great degree 
debarred from its advantages. 

To the arduous labors of the Board of Educa- 
tion the Department is indebted for much of its 
efficiency. The citizens will gratefully remember 



these gentlemen, who have devoted so much 
time and labor -without fee or hope of rev/ard. 

"We subjoin a short financial statement, a hst

12lh. The teachers of the Evening School are hereby made

In addition to the Public Schools, there are sev- 
eral private Academies and Institutions of learn- 
ing, firmly estabUshed and receiving a liberal 
patronage, among which we may mention the 


Commenced in March, 1854, as the Trinity 
High School, and was in June of this year organ- 
ized on its present basis, supplying a necessity, 
to wit: an institution where an University edu- 
cation could be obtained, contiguous to the city, 
and fi'ee fi-om any sectarian associations. " The 
College and College School are situated on Bush, 
between Mason and Taylor Streets, on a planked 
road, easy of access from the city, on an eminence 
commanding an extensive view of the surround- 
ing country." The dwelling house is commodi- 
ous, affording ample accommodation for such 
students as board at the College, with suitable 
conveniences and comforts. A play-ground in- 
closing two fifty vara lots is attached to the 
College, with a gymnasium, etc. The sessions 
are half-yearly, commencing on the fifteenth of 
May and fifteenth of November, and containmg 
five months each — with a recess of two weeks at 
Christmas. Terms of tuition, with board, $40 to 
$60 per month, payable quarterly in advance ; 
day scholars, $7 50 to $15 per month. There 
are about forty students in attendance. The 
course of studies in the several divisions includes 
the ordinary English branches— Latin, Greek, 
modem languages, mathematics, drawing, paint- 
ing, music, etc. There is a well selected hbrary, 
and the most complete set of philosophical appa- 
ratus in the State, and a globe seven and a half 
feet in diameter. 


"This school was opened with the express 
design of establishing in San Francisco a perma- 
nent institution, where advantages for a thorough 
and complete education should remove all neces- 
sity or desire, on the part of parents, for sending 
their daughters to any Eastern school." It has 
been in successful operation since the early part 
of 1855. Under the experienced Principal, aided 
by his accomplished lady and the well qualified 
instructors in the several branches, a finished 
female education can be here obtained. These 
advantages appear to be fully appreciated by our 
citizens — the published catalogue of pupils for 
the present year, includes one hundred and two 


Every branch of a finished female education is 
here taught, including the modern languages. 
Average attendance thirty to thu-ty-five. 


Organized October 15th, 1855, under the direc- 
tion of the order of Jesus, Rev. Anthony Mara- 
schi, Principal. About thirty pupils attend. 
Ancient and modern languages, and other classi- 
cal and scientific studies usually taught in high 
schools and graduating institutions, are here 
taught, in that thorough manner for which the 
Jesuit schools are distinguished. The Rev. 
Principal is also Agent and Treasurer for Santa 
Clara College, Santa Clara County, Cahfomia. 


Portsmouth House, Plaza — Principally for in- 
struction in the elements of the Jewish rehgion. 
At the Emanuel Synagogue, Broadway, be- 
tween Powell and Mason Streets, a School is 
taught. One hundred pupils in attendance. Rev. 
H. Bien, Principal. 

Beside the Schools, public and private, that 
we have enumerated, there are a number of 
others — male and female, Catholic and Protest- 
ant — of -which we can furnish no particulars; 
as their Conductors have either faded to respond 
to our inquiries, or we have overlooked them. 
But the facts shown demonstrate conclusively, 
that while the facilities for obtaining a finished 
classical education in San Francisco are second 
to but few cities in the Union, the means afforded 
for good Common School uastruction are superior 
to most. 



The liberal support extended by San Francisco 
to educational enterprises, public and private, is 
the most certain indication of her future great- 
ness, while it is one of her noblest sources of 
self-gratulation and pride. Her citizens, with 
such a system of Schools — built up within six 
years, under all the circumstances which have 
embarrassed and retarded its establishment — 
may certainly without vanity point to it as an 
instance of enhghtened energy without a parallel. 
From the nature of her position, as the depot of 
the vast gold fields of California, the great expo- 
nent of American civilization on the Pacific, 
San Francisco becomes the cynosure of the vast 
nations of Asia and the "Islands of the Sea," 
now first interested in the affairs of "outside 
barbarians," as well as the subject of careful ob- 
servation of the Christian world ; how important 
then that her infancy should exhibit the charac- 
teristics of American progress — the Press, the 
School, the Jiouse of God — Religion, Education, 
a Free Press — that she has struggled bravely, that 
she has nobly succeeded, the pages of this work 
afford ample testimony. 

Religion— Religions Societies and Associa- 

The number of churches, and the numerous 
auxiUary associations existing in our midst, 
afford at least some evidence that our people on 
this " far distant shore " manifest the same res- 
pect for religion which has characterized us as a 
nation ; and that the principle of active benevo- 
lence which seeks to make itself efficient by 
association, is as vital here, as it is with our 
brethren on the Atlantic. 

The principal sects are in possession of houses 
of worship, some of them, of several, for descrip- 
tions and locations of which, the reader is referred 
to the appropriate heads, in the registry or ap- 
pendix. All of these buildings are tolerable, 
several of them imposing and even splendid 
structures. There are also two Jewish syna- 
gogues, one of which is a very elegant building. 
In addition to the houses of worship enumerated, 
there are several congregations who are not 
provided with a permanent location, and who 
assemble either in the church of some fiiendly 
sect or in one of the public halls. So it can be 
truthfully said, that San Francisco affords ample 
accommodation to the church-goer, with an ex- 
panded field from which to select the Divine 
nourishment. The attendance on the Sabbath, 
at the public ministrations, at most of the 

churches, is very good and constantly increasing. 
In this particular the influence of Christianity 
has been, within a few years, very great, afford- 
ing a happy presage of the future of our city. 


There are Sabbath Schools connected with 
most of the churches. Some of these 'have a 
very large attendance, well selected libraries, etc. 
We learn from Mr. Stoddard, that there are about 
three hundred and fifty Teachers, but he declines 
givmg the average attendance of the schools, for 
reasons he deems satisfactory. In this connec- 
tion, it is not improper to state that in several 
instances parties have refused to furnish statis- 
tics, alleging that they did not wish to have them 
published — did not think any benefit would be 
derived, etc. This notion — for we can call it 
nothing else — is altogether too antiquated for 
this period, or at any rate for this locality, and 
we beseech these gentlemen to arouse and rub 
their eyes. The spirit of the age is that of in- 
vestigation; men demand facts, and respond 
"humbug," to declarations that " this is too sa- 
cred," or "this will give offense," or "the cause 
wUl suffer if all the facts are published," etc. 
Why, wise men are now demandmg that Diplo- 
macy, that seven-times-sealed subject, shall 
henceforth be open and above board; that Mm- 
isters of State and Ambassadors shall no longer 
play at hide-and-seek with the vital interests of 
great nations ; and there is every reason to be- 
lieve that this will be complied with before many 
years shall pass away. The public require in- 
formation upon aU subjects of public concern- 
ment, and that such information may be not only, 
readily accessible, but properly diffused, they 
demand its pubhcation. 


These have betn very fully described under 
the proper heads in the Registry or Apendis, 
and we have time only for a few remarks. 

During the year past the Tract Society has 
distributed, gratuitously, within the eighteen 
districts into which for convenience they divide 
the city,. 218,227 pages of tracts, of which 26,197 
pages were in foreign languages. 

The Toung Men's Christinn Association is a 
most influential institution, well calculated to 
produce good fruits. Conflned to no denomina- 
tion, its haUs are open to all who either profess 
or seek a knowledge of Christ. They have sev- 




eral well-arranged apartments, assigned to con- 
versation, reading, library, etc. The library con- 
tains several hundred well-selected works in the 
diflereut walks of literature. 

This institution is commended to the attention 
of pious young strangers visiting the city. They 
will there find congenial associates and an oppor- 
tunity to participate in Christian privileges and 


Of these there are two. The Catholic Orphan 
Asylum has been so fully described that we have 
nothing to add. The house occupied by the 
other is a substantial building. The premises 
inclosed, belonging to the Asylum, are 618 feet 
9 inches by 4-12 feet 6 inches — equal in area to 
about six one-hundred-vara lots-^affording ample 
space for all the purposes of the institution, play- 
grounds for the children, etc. There are now 
forty-thi'ee orphans under the care of the Board. 
The names af the ladies constituting the Board 
of Managers for the present year, afford sufBcient 
assurance that these httle ones have indeed a 

Orders. — Masonic and Odd Fello'trs. 

The several Orders, Masonic and Odd Fellows, 
are represented to be in a highly prosperous state. 
For the very full reports of these societies which 
appear, (the former on pages 128-9, and the lat- 
ter on page 164,) we are indebted to the respec- 
tive Grand Secretaries— Ales. G. AbeU, Esq., G. 
S. of the M. W. G. L. F. and A. M. ; and T. Eod- 
gers Johnson, Esq., G. S. of the M. W. G. L. I. 
0. 0. F. — who courteously prepared the entire 
matter for the press. The following extract from 
the "Sacramento Directory for 1856," contains 
some interesting facts connected with the first 
movements of the Odd Fellows in California, and 
an allusion to the Masons. In fact, the two 
Orders united in the establishment and mainte- 
nance of a hospital at that city, which, with its 
enormous expenses at that early day, with the 
severe drain upon the resources of brethren, 
alluded to in the extracts, contributed to the 
pecuniary ruin of many of the more active mem- 

"On the m'omiugof the 20th of August, 1849, 
A. M. Winn had the following notice printed in 
handbill form, and circulated throughout the 

■r. O. O.P.— The Odd Fellows of Sacramento City, will 
meet at the store of Wiim. Baker & McGhee, on Third Street 
hetweeo J and K Streets, this evening, at 8 o'clock. 

August 20. 1S49.' 

That evening the members of the Order met 
according to the notice, and were called to order 
by B. F. Hastings, of Warren Lodge No. 3, of 
Vicksburg, Mississippi, and on his motion, A. M. 
Wiim was called to the chair, who explained the 
object of the meeting, as follows : 

' Brethren : — Yon are assembled under most extrnordinary 
circumstances. We have not the power to work as a LoflKC, 
and yet the immense amount of sufl'eringr among the members 
of the Order, requires our most active benevolence in carrying 
out the great principles taught us at the altar of Odd Fellow- 
ship. We have met for the purpose of finding out who of onr 
citizens are Odd Fellows, and to form an association for the 
relief of sick and distressed brothers. 

A dreadful calamity has overtaken ns — hundreds are lying 
sick, rolled in their Olthv blankets, wittliont wife, children or 
friends to nurse them while sick, or bury them when dead. Wo 
who have health and means, should be liberal to those in dis- 
tress, as long as in onr power. Let ns do all we can, without a 
violation of the principles of the Order,' 

On motion of Thomas Bannister, Daniel Mc- 
Laren was chosen Secretary. 

B. F. Hastings offered the following resolutions, 
which were unanimously adopted: 

' 1. ReMheil, That we will form an .Association of Odd Fel- 
lows in Sacramento City, for the relief of the distressed mem- 
bers of the Order. 

2. Hcsoirfid, That a committee of three he appointed to draft 
rules and regulations for our government. 

3. Refohed, That a Committee of Relief be now appointed, 
whose duty it shall be to collect by volnntarj' contributions 
from members of the Order, an amount sufficient to relieve the 
distressed and bury the detid, until further provisions are made 
by the association,' 

The Chair appointed as Committee on Rules 
and Regulations, B. F. Hastings, Daniel McLaren 
and Joseph C. Derby ; and, on motion, the Chair 
was added to, and made Chairman o^ the com- 

On the Relief Committee the Chair appointed 
E. K. Gallup, Dennis Ridout, Isaac H. Norris, 
Samuel McNulty and Jas. B. Cunningham. 

On motion, the meeting then adjourned to the 
24th inst., at 8 o'clock, P. M. 

On the 24th, the members of the Order met 
pursuant to adjournment. A, M. Winn in the 
chair. The Committee on Rules and Regulations 
reported as follows : 

' Sacramento Citt, Aug. 24, 1849. 
The members of the Order met pursuant to ad.ioununent, A. 
M. Winn in the eliair. The Committee on Rules and Regula- 
tions reported as follows : 


1. The name shall he the ' Sacramento Odd Fellows' Associa- 

2. Its objects — to relieve the distressed and bnry the dead. 

3. Its officers shall be a President, Vice Prer-ident, Secretary 
and Treasurer, who shall hold their offices one year, and until 
their successor-s are elected, and shall perform the duties inci- 
dent to their otfices. as the .Association may require. 

[The By-Laws reported at this time have been lost.] 

On motion, the Constitution and By-Laws were adopted ; and 
the names of the following persons were registered ns members 
of the Association : — .Y. M. Winn, li. F. Uastings, lianiel Mc- 
Laren, E. Meconekin, James A. Myer, Henry K. Robinson,

On motion the Association proceeded to elect its officers, 
which resulted as follows :— .A. 31. Winn, President; Edward 
E. Hunter, Vice President; Daniel McLaren, Secretary, and 
E. K. Gallup. Treasurer. 

The Committee of Relief appointed at the former meeting, 
was continued. 

Several members of the Order were reported sick, and com- 
mittees appointed to attend them. The Committee of Relief 


was directed to report all cases of sickness or distress to the 

Tiie President was vested with full power to do whatever be 
deemed necessary tor the good of the Association, or members 
of the Order. The Secretary was directed to receive all moneys, 
and pay the same 10 the Treasurer. The Treasnrer was di- 
rected to receive all moneys from the Secretary, and disburse 
t!ie same on tlie warrant of the President, countersi^ed and 
numbered by the Secretarv-. 

The admission fee was fixed at live dollars. 

It was ordered, that the regular meetings should be held every 
Friday evening, at the President's office, on Third Street, be- 
tween J and K. 

The Association then adjourned. 

A. M. WINN, President. 

Daniel McLiBEK, Secretary.' 

The foregoing are all the proceetJings of the 
Association that have been preserved, the record 
book having been lost during the flood of Janu- 
aiy, 1850. 

The Society continued to meet regularly, until 
the number of sick members of the Order became 
so great, that the active members had but little 
time to bestow upon those whom they were ap- 
pointed to attend. The cases of sickness became 
so very numerous, that the members who were 
able to attend to them, frequently became sick 
themselves, from actual fatigue ; and some fell 
victims to disease through their ovm acts of be- 
nevolence. Soon after the organization, the whole 
Association was resolved into one Committee of 
Relief, — the members of which were constantly 
on duty, and reported verbally to the President, 
day and night. Their reports were frequently 
of the most heart-rending character. 

Cotemporaneous with the operations of the 
Odd Fellows, was that of the Free Masons, who, 
though without any special organization, acted 
in concert with their brethren in relieving the 
distresses of their fellow-men. The sanitory dis- 
pensations of the associations alluded to above, 
is but a reflex of wliat attaches itself to the Free 
Masons. We were promised a detailed account 
of their proceedings, from their first meeting in 
this city to the present time, but have been dis- 
appointed in obtaining it." 

Son's of Temperance — Templars of Honor. 

Both these Orders are fairly represented in this 
city. A. C. Manning, Esq., G. S. of the former, 
in a letter of Sept. 24th, says: "The Order of S. 
of T. now numbers about 160 active working 
Divisions in this State, with a membership of 
some 1,000. The Order was never in a more 
healthy condition than at the present time, and 
there is every indication of a prosperous future." 

The Templars of Honor are a comparatively 
new organization, but are rapidly gaining public 
consideration and importance. 

Society of California Pioneers. 

The Society have two pleasant apartments on 
the Plaza, fitted up for the enjoyment of the 
members and their visitors, where the Anoients 
assemble and mourn over the departed days 
when the abundance of gold and its general dif- 
fusion were the best protection against dishonesty 

when pans of the rich dust hams, bologna 
sausage, beans, etc., were promiscuously exposed, 
equally without risk. Admirable moral atmos- 
phere, albeit accompanied with the slight draw- 
backs of mule locomotion, canvas houses, flannel 
shirts, beds minus sheets, pillows and mattrass, 
fleas, slap jacks, firied pork, and balls without 

Tlie Mercantile Iilbrary Association 

Has been so fbUy referred to on page 148, that 
we deem it necessary only to append the report 
of Mr. Moore, the Librarian, in reference to the 
issue of books for the past month. 

LianABiAN's Report for Seftembee, 1S56. — To the Board 
of Direrlors of the Mercantile Library Association — Gentle- 
men ; The whole number of books taken out of the library dur- 
ing tlie past month was 978, consisting ot works in the following 
brandies of literature, viz.: — Romance, 421 vols.; Biography, 
92 : Voyages and Travels, 136 ; History, SO ; Belles Lettres. 70 ; 
Science and Art, 30 ; Poetry, 40 : Law and Politics, 14 ; Relig- 
ion, 5 ; Miscellaneous, 52 ; Eonnd Periodicals, 38. 

The above shows an increase of ten volumes above the number 
taken out of the library in August, with no remarkable atten- 
tion to, or neglect of any of, the departments. Eight new sub- 
scribing members have been added to the Association during 
the month ; ten volumes of miscellaneous books have been pre- 
sented to the Association by Wm. Gouvemeur Morris, Esq. 

Meclianles' Institute. 

We much regret that we are unable to give a 
more full account of this interesting institution 
than can be found in the Register. 

California Academy of JVatnral Sciences. 

The proceedings of this institution indicate 
that California, pre-eminently distinguished as it 
is for the devotion of its people to mere material 
acquisition, yet has disthiguished exceptions. 
The importance of the unpretending exertions 
of these gentlemen, who shall estimate ? For 
the names of ofBcers of this institution, location,

The history of Steamboat enterprise on these 
waters, exhibits the same mutations which have 
influenced all other business, magnified or aggra- 
vated by the nature of the pursuit, and some 
peculiar circumstances affecting it on this coast. 
The country suddenly occupied by a numerous 
population, totally without local supplies, and 
with ample means to purchase the luxuries of 
life, as well as its necessaries, — gave an impetus 
to trade never before known in the history of 
Commerce. The products of every portion of 
the globe, commanded a ready market in San 
Francisco — lunited only by the means of trans- 
portation to the interior. The prices paid for 
carriage of freight and passengers were so enor- 
mous, that the proceeds of a single trip of one 


hundred or one hundred and thirty miles, would 
equal or exceed the original cost of the boat in 
the States; and profits almost fabulous were 
realized to the lucky owners, after the payment 
of the most unheard-of wages to tlie employees. 
Thus stimulated, the utmost exertions were made 
by steamboat owners, here and in the Atlantic 
States, to place their boats in California, or to 
supply the demand by building them here. The 
result was, within a very few years, a vast accu- 
mulation of steamboat tunnage upon the waters 
tributary to San Francisco Bay. But whUe the 
population had increased, it had also found 
means to supply, at home, many of those neces- 
saries hitherto procured from other countries, and 
the transportation of which had formed so im- 
portant a part of the business of the river steam- 
ers. Gold being the principal product, no export 
trade of produce, as in the great valleys of the 
West, arose to compensate for the diminution of 
the original business. Again, owing to the dis- 
covery of gold in Australia, and other causes, 
the influx of population was seriously checked, 
and the passenger trade was diminished in the 
same proportion as freight. Under these circum- 
stances, the owners of Steamboat stock on tlie 
waters of California found themselves engaged 
in a competition utterly destructive of their 
interests, present and prospective. With an 
amount of tunnage ample for three times the 
population; without the least prospect of im- 
provement in the character or extent of business 
to be transacted; no boundless regions, pene- 
trated by navigable streams, yielding to cultiva- 
tion annually a vast increase of bulky produce 
for transportation, supplying an active business 
for the idle boats of the preceding season — ex- 
isted here, as in the great valley of the Missis- 
sippi, to give hope to the future. The steam- 
boat owner saw before him but ruinous compe- 
tition — involving direct pecuniary loss and the 
certain depreciation and final decay of the costly 
property which in most cases represented, not 
only his entire capital, but much of debt, in- 
curred in its construction. 

A continuance of competition of this charac- 
ter, under the peculiar circumstances of Cahfor- 
nia — while vitally injurious to the owners of 
steamboats, and productive of temporary and 
questionable benefit to individuals — must termi- 
nate in serious injury to the people at large. The 
result could not be doubtful. After the pecu- 
niary ruin of all or nearly all engaged in it, the 
business would certainly pass into the hands of 

capitalists able to control it, and who at this re- 
mote distance, having the entire control of the 
stock remaining suitable for business, would con- 
stitute — not a combination of numerous small 
interests, intent only on self-preservation, — but a 
successful monied monopoly; which, holding in 
its hands ample resources, and the entire com- 
mand of the trade, could safely defy competition 
by pointing the daring projector of opposition to 
the direful consequences of accumulating steam- 
boats on waters affording so limited a field for 
their employment ; and thus for a series of years 
hold within their souUess grasp the business of 
the country. 

Urged by this state of facts, and determined 
by these reflections, the steamboat owners of 
California resolved to combine their interests, 
and in March, 1854, organized The California 
Steaji Natioation CoMPA^■T, under the general 
law, with a capital of $1,800,000. As soon as 
the Company got into operation, they reduced 
the number of boats plymg on our rivers within 
the limits justified by the business of the coun- 
try, while the others were laid up under as care- 
fal protection as possible. 

But following as it did one of the most stu- 
pendous monopolies of breadstuff's ever known, 
by which flour was forced up to the most exor- 
bitant rates, (from $35 to $45 per barrel in San 
Francisco,) this company came in for a share of 
the popular indignation which had been aroused 
by the latter, and amidst this storm, swelled by 
Executive denunciation and Legislative threat- 
enings, no discrimination was exercised, and no 
allowance made for the very different character 
of the organization, or the peculiar state of facts 
out of which it grew; and every attempt made 
to oppose the Company, or embarrass it, was 
hailed with delight, and an effort was even made 
to interfere by Legislative enactment with the 
legitimate business of the Company, — presenting 
the disgraceful spectacle in the middle of the 
nineteenth centurj'-, of a collection of American 
legislators seriously entertaining Legislative pro- 
positions scouted years ago, as at war with every 
true principle of political science. But these 
things have passed away. The conciliatory and 
honorable course pursued by the Directors, and 
their exertions to meet the requirements of the 
public — their moderation in the exercise of their 
somewhat dangerous power — the conviction that 
reparation for accidents and losses can be much 
more certainly obtained from a wealthy com- 
pany, than from individuals of uncertain or no 



responsibility, — has tended to mollify the public 
feeling, which, reverting to the reasons for its 
establishment, looks with indulgence upon the 
California Steam Kavigation Company. 

Eor the first six months after its organization, 
dividends commensurate with the risk and un- 
certainty of the business were paid; — for the 
past six months the Company has made money, 
paid regular dividends since April, and has on 
hand a cash surplus to meet contingencies. 
During the interval, however, between these 
two periods, the operations of the Compsmy were 
unprofitable, arising from conflicting interests, 
and other circumstances not permanent in their 

Having secured the confidence of the business 
community in the permanency of their organiza- 
tion, and shown its determination to deser\'e it, 
by correct dealing and prompt and honorable 
adjustment — fair profits may hereafter be antici- 
pated, and some appreciation in their stock 
hitherto so ruinously low, may reasonably be 
looked for. 

In one particular highly important to the 
people of the State, the Company has displayed 
a most praiseworthy enterprise and liberality. 
The impoverished condition of the State Treas- 
ury has entirely precluded all dependence upon 
that source for any expenditure for opening or 
preserving our internal navigation. Such works 
are clearly beyond the means of individuals, if 
we could even hope for the exhibition of that 
degree of exalted patriotism, involving immense 
private expenditure without any exclusive ad- 
vantage. The Company, however, availing itself 
of its extensive resources, responding to the re- 
quu-ements of the commimity, and sustained by 
the hope of future gain, has freely borne the 
heavy expenditure incident to clearing out the 
impediments to navigation in the Upper Sacra- 
mento, and are at this moment engaged in simDar 
operations on that river, and are contemplating 
a like enterprise on Feather River. 

The foUowmg figures, shown by the books of 
the Company, are interesting: 

From March 1st, 1854, to August 31st, 1856, 
(two and a half years,) there were 385,000 pas- 
sengers conveyed, to and fro, between the Cities 
of San Francisco and Sacramento; and 328,000 
tuns of freight, from San Francisco to Sacramento, 
Marysville, Colusi and Red Blufis, by the boats of 
the Company. During the same time, 120,000 
tuns of freight were taken to Stockton. It is 
proper to observe, that a much larger proportion 

of freight is conveyed to Sacramento in schoon- 
ers, than to Stockton. 

For further details, see Register, pages 30-1. 
The Company have constantly employed about 
450 persons. 

For information of the Steamers belonging to 
the Citizens' Steam Navigation Company, and 
individuals, reference is made to the Register. 

Steamslilp Companies. 


The main facts as to the organization of this 
great Company, will be found on page 169. 
They dispatch one of their splendid steamers 
semi-monthly, to Panama, with the Great At- 
lantic Mails, and weekly, to Oregon and Wash- 
ington Territories. The principal depot of the 
Company is at Benicia, where they have exten- 
sive foundries, iron works, etc., and complete 
facilities, for the repair of their vessels, and 
where such of them as are not in use are laid up. 


See Register, page 161. 


C. A. Low, Esq., agent, 30 Froat Street. This 
Company is still owner of the Steamers Uncle 
Sam, Cortez, Pacific and Brother Jonathan, on 
this side, and Northern Light, Star of the West, 
Daniel Webster and Prometheus, on the other — 
of the aggregate value of $1,500,000 — and are 
now engaged in making arrangements for the 
establishment of a line via the Isthmus of Te- 
huantepec, by which it is confidently expected 
that the time between this city and New Orleans 
will be reduced to fourteen days, and to New 
York, seventeen days. The Company was in- 
corporated in 1851, and up to the present year, 
was engaged in the conveyance of passengers via 
Nicaragua, when their business was broken up 
by the intestine troubles of that State. 

Iron Foundries, Boiler "W'orlts and Black" 
sniltli Shops* 

The various establishments under these heads 
in this city are numerous, and some of them ex- 
tensive. Of these we may mention the Pacific 
Works, Vulcan, (joint stock co.,) Sutter, and 
Fulton. The Steam Boiler Works of Messrs. 
Coffey and Eisdon is the only establishment on 
this coast confined to this manufacture exclu- 
sively, and does an extensive and increasing 
business, employing a large number of hands, in- 



volving a heavy outlay for labor and materials 
tbe past year of $65,000. The worthy proprie- 
tors are men of family, settled here as permanent 
Califomians, and deserve, as they ■n'ill certahily 
achieve, success. 

And, though last, not least, the extensive es- 
tablishment of Mr. Peter Donahue, known as the 
"Union Iron Works." The present proprietor, 
with his brothers, are well known among the 
most enterprising and successfdl of the business 
men of San Francisco. Commencing in 1849 in 
a small way as blacksmiths and machinists, they 
continued to enlarge their works as their capital 
justified, and the business of the city required, 
until they have extended to their present im- 
portance. In March, 1850, the first essay at 
iron casting was successfully made at these 
Works, consisting of propeller boxes for the 
Steamer McKim. Although the enormous price 
of fifty cents per pound was received for this 
work, it was unprofitable, owing to the great ex- 
pense of preparation for it. A brick Foundry 
and Machine Shop has just been completed, 
which with the diii'erent Machine and Boiler 
Shops, etc., covers a fifty vara lot and an adjoin- 
ing space of 40x80 feet. All the machinery of 
these works was constructed within them, and 
the extensive castings and machinery of the Gas 
Works of tliis city were also made here. From 
50 to no men are employed at the Union Works, 
according to the exigencies of business. 


A branch of trade of great magnitude in this 
city is the furniture Busurass. Various causes 
have combined to prevent its manufacture here, 
while the influx of a large population, and the 
sudden growth of towns and cities, with perhaps 
a larger proportion of people of taste and means 
for its gratification, than that of many older com- 
munities, created a great demand for aU descrip- 
tions — which demand had to be supplied from 
the Atlantic States and Europe, hence the entire 
trade has centered here, and several mammoth 
establishments have been created by it. In the 
extensive warehouses of these dealers are dis- 
played immense stocks, constantly renewed from 
the clippers at our wharves, wliich include every 
thing in their line, from the unpretending neces- 
saries essential to the humblest housekeeper, to 
the most elegant articles demanded by modern 

Of these houses, as senior in date of establish- 
ment, and equal in importance to any, we take 

the liberty of naming Messrs. Geo. 0. Whitney 
& Co. Their history is a recital of San Francisco, 
or rather California perseverance and determina- 
tion under discouraging circumstances. They 
commenced business in the fall of 1850 on Pacific 
street, and established a branch warehouse at 
the comer of Sacramento and Webb Streets. 
Both of these stores, with their large and valu- 
able stocks, were totally destroyed in the great 
fires of May and June, 1851. Notwithstanding 
these disasters, by which within the short space 
of thirty days their stock was twice destroyed 
and their business twice broken up, they resumed 
or rather continued their business, occupying a 
warehouse on Battery Street next to the old 
Vigilance Committee Rooms, and rebuilt and 
continued the store on Sacramento Street. In 
1852 they built a warehouse on Sacramento 
Street, which was the first fire-proof building put 
up on that street. In 1853 they built the spa- 
cious warehouse they now occupy on California 
street. This building is 57x80 feet, with three 
stores besides basement, built expressly for their 
business, and admirably adapted to it, yet scarcely 
sufficient to contain the immense stock their ex- 
tended business requires. Besides the store here, 
they have an extensive branch establishment in 
Sacramento. Mr. Geo. Whitney, the father of 
the members of the firm here, remains constantly 
in the Atlantic States, for the purpose of select- 
ing and forwarding the constant supplies arriving 
here by every cUpper. 

Another of these great houses, Messrs. J. G. 
Clark & Co., occupy the old Clipper Warehouse, 
extending through from No. 128 Washington to 
Jackson Street. Their premises front on Wash- 
ington 30 feet, and 75 feet on Jackson, besides 
an extensive yard West of the warehouse, work 
shops, etc., suitably divided and assigned to the 
different departments of their business, viz : desk- 
rooms, varnishing-rooms, mattrass-rooms, ship- 
ping-rooms, sales-rooms, etc., etc. But the Hall, 
especially worthy of observation, is the principal 
salesroom, occupying the second story of the 
warehouse, 30 feet wide, and extending from 
street to street, a distance of 275 feet. No 
conception can be formed of this magnificent 
apartment from mere description, and any person 
visiting it will be amply rewarded by an exhibi- 
t'on of tasteful and elegant furniture, artistically 
arranged in an apartment so extensive and so 
well calculated for its display. 

Tills house has just commenced manufacturing, 
and have a large number of hands constantly em- 



ployed upon fine parlor sets, desks, and other 
bulky and costly articles. Some idea of the ex- 
tent of their business may be formed, when it is 
stated that their stock sometimes exceeds in 
value the sum of $200,000, and their freight bill 
in a single vessel $5,000. 

Besides these there are other houses of less 
extent, but transacting an extensive business, 
amongst whom may be named Messrs. S. 0. 
Pierce & Co., and others whose address may be 
found in our Registry. 

Sugar Refinery, 

The San Francisco Steam Sugar Refinery have 
in progress extensive Works, which, completed, 
will add a most important branch of business to 
San Francisco industry. The faciUty of obtain- 
ing ample supplies of the cheap sugars of the 
East, and the extensive markets of the Pacific 
for the refined article, will doubtless enable the 
Company to command a large and profitable 

Flouring MUIg. 

This business has become within the last three 
years a most important branch of California in- 
dustry, and is destined, when agricultural labor 
shall have developed the capacity of the country 
for grain growing, to become its leading manu- 
facturing interest. There are ten or twelve mills 
here, which are described in the register. Several 
are now idle, owing to the high prices of grain. 
The Ophir Mills, 149 Battery Street, are recom- 
mended for the superior articles of flour, com 
meal, etc., etc., prepared for city use. 


The principal material heretofore used in our 
thoroughfares it is conceded must give way to 
something safer and more durable, and the public 
are divided in opinion as to the advantages of the 
various plans proposed to take the place of plank 
as it becomes worn out. Montgomery Street 
from Clay to WashiDgton has the cobble pave- 
ment, of which that between Merchant and 
Washington has been but recently laid down. In 
some other parts of that street experiments have 
been made with a composition of asphaltum and 
cobble stones, which if it possesses durability, 
certainly presents advantages in the facility of 
putting it down. In front of the U. S. Court 
Building and Custom House is a splendid speci- 
men ot the Russ pavement. In this climate, 
with no frost to disturb it, one who saw that put 

down, might reasonably suppose that "it was 
there" untU upheaved by some mighty convul- 
sion of nature. We understand from Mr. Chee- 
nery, the agent for Col. Russ in this city, that 
arrangements are in progress for an abundant 
supply of material for nest season, when it will 
be extensively laid — both as side walks and car- 
riage ways. 

Tanneries, IJeatbcr, etc. 

The Encinal in Alameda Co. have 42 vats, and 
turn out 250 sides per month. An artesian well 
is being dug on the premises, 610 feet has been 
reached without finding water ; they are still per- 
severing, with encouraging prospects. 


This is the largest and most complete estab- 
lishment of the kind in the State. It is situated 
in the town of Santa Cruz, on the coast, about 
65 miles to the southward of this place. The 
capacity of this yard is 800 sides per month, but 
has never been worked to that extent, 600 being 
the extent in any one month up to the present 
time. Harness Skirting and Sole Leather are 
principal kinds manufactured. These works are 
principally owned in this city, where the leather 
is brought for sale. 


Are also manufactured here extensively, and 
vie in excellence and beauty with any made 


Our readers will no doubt fully sympathize in 
our disappointment, in being unable to give them 
a promised article on this subject from the capable 
pen of Col. Warren — the other engagements of 
the Colonel having compelled him to delay be- 
yond our time, its preparation. 

city Government. 

Incorporated by the Legislature of 1850 ; the 
new government got into operation in May, of 
that year. Since that time, the Charter has been 
repeatedly changed and amended, but no legis- 
lation, apparently, was sufficient to check the 
career of extravagance that rapidly dissipated 
tne magnificent domain which had belonged to 
the city, and created a debt doubly burdensome 
to the tax-payer, as he could point to no wise 
and necessary expenditure, the advantages of 
which at once justified the outlay and author- 
ized its imposition upon posterity. In this res- 



pect, the County Government was equally suc- 
cessful, and a few years exhibited a debt which, 
scarcely inferior in amount, was created in the 
same reckless manner, without resulting perma- 
nent benefits. 

Finally, the last Legislature, detaching a large 
portion of the territory, united the City and 
County Government by an Act of Consohdatiofi, 
which went into operation on the 1st July last. 
From the stringent provisions of this law, thor- 
rough reform is anticipated ; at any rate, many 
of the enormous expenses incident to the former 
dual system have been either entirely abohshed, 
or seriously reduced, while the checks upon 
lavish expenditure appear to bo so well devised 
as to defy evasion ; and the inhibition of debt, 
and its repudiation if contracted, are so positive 
as effectually to deprive the authorities of the 
power of exceeding their income. The officers 
under the Act will be chosen at the next General 
Election, (November.) The city is divided into 
twelve districts, each of which elects one mem- 
ber of the Board of Supervisors. A President 
of the Board, with the other Executive officers, 
is chosen by the city at large.

The Press. 

The following list of periodicals published 
here, exhibits forcibly the spirit of enterprise in 
this branch of business, and the determined com- 
petition to which it has given rise :

A strictly accurate return of the various or- 
ganizations in this city is at this time almost 
impossible, owing to the confusion arising from 
the exciting events of the past summer. We 
have given in the Register as complete a sum- 
mary as could be obtained. 

Fire Department. 

The complete and copious statement contained 
in the Appendix under this head, prepared by 
the courteous and talented Secretary of the Board 
of Delegates, M. D. Boruck, Esq., has left us no- 
thing to say on this subject, but to express our 
appreciation of his kindness, with the single re- 
mark, that the condition of the Department re- 
flects unbounded credit upon the patriotic body 
of men belonging to it, and is worthy of the lib- 
erality so judiciously exhibited by the citizens in 
sustaining it. 

"Water 'Worlis. 

The want of an abundant supply of pure, soft 
water for household purposes, to say nothing of 
its importance in other respects, is certainly a 
serious evil in this city. Nothing speaks so con- 
vincingly of the purity of the atmosphere of this 
locality, as the absence of anything like pestilen- 
tial diseases, notwithstanding the accumulation 
of filth and garbage in the Cumerous courts of 
the city, and the horrible state of many of the 
slips and docks. Very much of this filth is justly 
chargeable to the scarcity of water, which, pur- 

chased by the bucket, is too expensive to be 
used except for the indispensable purposes of 
drinking, cooking and very slight lavations. The 
organizations formed with a view to meet this 
requirement seem to be too much embarrassed 
with objects of private speculation, to subserve 
adequately, the necessities of the public, in this 
most vital matter. Steps should be taken at an 
early day to make such provision aa is required, 
and to retain a proper control of it in the hands 
of the people. 

Telegrapb Lines. 

Of these there are two which are complete to 
this city — the "State Telegraph Company," and 
the " Alta CaUfornia Telegraph Company." See 

|^~ Apologetic. _^ 

Since the sheets containing what purports to 
be the hst of the officers of the Committee of 
Vigilance were printed, we have ascertained 
officially, that the same is altogether imperfect 
and incorrect. That this is so we much regret, 
and we still more regret that we did not make 
the discovery in time to suppress it altogether, 
especially as we have been informed that the 
publication may be disagreeable to the gentle- 
men named, and we can only ask that degree of 
consideration merited by the fact that no evil to 
any was intended. 

8 P. II. October, 1856. 

The hurry of publication, for reasons men- 
tioned in the Peeface, has compelled us to cur- 
tail this branch of our work, and to omit, or 
barely to allude to much in the business of the 
city worthy of extended notice, and which, un- 
der other circumstances would have occupied 
ample space, accompanied with important statis- 
tical data. We now, in this connection, bid our 
friends a reluctant farewell, until the 1st of Oc- 
tober, 1857, when we shall again appear before 
them with, we trust, a sknilar work, still more 
worthy of them and of ourselves. 

The following appears at the head 6f the first 
page of the Registry of Names : 

" 5tS" Notice. — Names too late for regular 
insertion, changes that have occurred during 
compilation, etc., will be found on a preceding

A frame structure was erected by members of the

tion of its manaL'ernent by John Lewis liakrr, and

ANTELOPE STEAMER, commanded by Capt.

Co ; plies between San Francisco and Sac- 
ramento ; lands at Pacific Street Wharf 
The recent alterations and repairs of this popular 
steamer, hitherto unparalleled in extent on this 
coast, render it proper to recall remiuiscences con- 
nected with her career. The Antelope was built in 
1S49, by a joint stock company, to run between New 
York and .New B^nn^wic^c in opposition to the l^a- 
ritan, then owned by the great New Jersey steam- 
boat monopolist, Robert L. Stevens. After a suc- 
cessful season she was purchiised, in ISoo, by George 
Law, converted into an ocean steamer, and dispatch- 

ed to California where she took her place in "Law's 
Line," and for the period of about one year from the 
fall of 1850, ran successfully between San Francisco 
and Panama. It will be remembered that this was 
the lirst opposition to the mammoth Pacific Mail 
Steamship Company, and under the management of 
Oliver Charlick, Ksq., the Agent at San Francisco, 
was highly popular and successful. In the early 
part oflS52, Capt. John Van Pelt, (the pioneer com- 
mander of the Senator upon the waters of Califor- 
nia,) purchased the Antelope, and at considerable 
expense restored lier to her original character of 
river steamer, in which trade she remained as an 
opposition steamer to what was known as the " Old " 
and '^ Union " lines, m.aking (with the exception of 
the Senator) more money for her owners than any 
other river steamer. In March, 1854, the Antelope, 
in connection with most of the river stock, went 
into po?session of her present owners, who, with 
characteristic sagacity and liberality, have recently 
(August, 1856,) almost rebuilt her, at an expense not 
much short of $50,01)0,— adding 3U feet to her length, 
of keel, improving her already easy model, and giv- 
ing promise of great speed. The recent improve- 
ments were made under the joint supervision of 
Capt. David Vau Pelt, General Superintendent of 
the Comp.any ; Capt. James Whitney, Jr., Vice Pre- 
sident; and her well known and justly esteemed 
commander, Capt. E. A. Poole, — who have availed 
themselves of the opportunity to add conveniences 
and comforts permitted by the increased size and 
changes incident thereto. Her present dimensions 
are as follows: — Length of keel, 206 feet; breadth of 
beam, 28 feet; depth of hold, 9 feet; — with a capa- 
city to carry, with e-ase, 250 tons of freight above- 
decks; with state-room and sleeping accommoda- 
tions for 150 cabin p;issengers, and about the same 
number in the steerage. Her cylinder is 4S inches 
in diameter, with 10 feet stroke. The Antelope has 
been pre-eminently what, in steamboat parlance, is 
called a "Ineky boat.' In almost constant service 
since she was first launched, she has never met with 
an accident of any serious character, and has alwayn 
made money. With this prestige, and commanded 
by a gentleman so universally jiopular as her pres- 
ent capt.ain, being so well adapted as she is for her 
present trade, who can doubt a most successful ca- 
reer in the future.

one-hnlf the amount of work of the above, or is so simple and so little liable to "jet

Southeast Comer of Sansome and Commercial Sts., opposite the St, ITicholas Hotel, San Francisco, 

Are effecting llie innst pxtrnordinary CURES of Fever and Ague, Intermittent and other Fevers, Jaundice, Diseases of the 
Ijiver, "Kidneys, tlie (Jfiiitnl nnd Uiiniiry OrKuns, all Sexual Disorders, Paralysis, Neuralgia, including Tic Doloreiix, Stiff 
Joints, and are also employed with astouishint? success in 

Also, all Indolent Ulcers. Tumors, Swellings, A bctst-es, Cancer of the Womb, all other affections of the Womb, and Cancerous 
Affections generally, and Scrofula. These Baths seem to be Nature's own chosen medium for effecting cures where all plher 
means would fail wiiliout them ; and prove beyond the possibility of doubt, to all who take them, the iniquity' of Medical practice 
which poisons the human system bv administering to it calomel, arsenic, lead, zinc, iron, antimony, qninine, iodide of potassa, and 
a whole host of deadly drugs which remain in the system, and are EXTRACTED BY THESE BATHS. 

During nearly fifteen years I have never given even a solitary dose of oil or salts, much less any POISONOUS DRUOS, or 
herbs, and have NEA'"ER seen a case in which they were requisite if Water Treatment was emjiloyed. When will the people 
cease\ to be such simpletons as to hire men to POISON and BLEED them, while they also retain on their statute boobs laws 
against poisoning, maiming and bleeding CATTLE t Are the members of the human family less worthy of protection than ani- 
mals:? I assert in the face of this entire State and the world at large, that there never was. is not now, and never will be, a case 
in which calomel, crude mercury, quinine, arsenic, lead, zinc, iron, antimony, iodine, or any other POISON, should have been, 
or be, administered to the human system, or in which bleeding, cupping or leeching was required ; and further, that hundreds of 
thousands fill premature graves through an ill-limed or nver-dose of salts or oil. Let the people ponder on these things, and if 
the poor and deluded victims of medical i-ascaiity desire health, I pledge the honor of one man at least, that I will so employ 
NATURE'S AGENCIES of Good Food, Air, Pure Water, Exercise, Clothing, the Eleclro-Cbemical Baths, and the Sleeping 
and Waking Hours, that without a particle of NASTY and POISONOUS medicine. I will so arouse the powers of their systems 
that if there be any Btrength left, they shall speedily get perfectly well in body, with minds so expanded to the perception of 
natural philosophy, as thereafter to cause them to set iheir faces against all professional rogues or fools, and awake them to a 
knowledge of tlie evils of intrusting their own vital interest to the keeping of others whose interest must ever be antagonistic 
to their own. . ».■ i i tt > r^ 

Address, by letter or personally, Pr. BOURNR, Water Cure Physician, Sansome street, opposite St. Nicholas Hotel, San 
Francisco, importer into this State of the FIRST and ONLY apparatus for giving these delightful and beneficial Klectro-Chemi- 
cal Baths, and whose experience in their use warrants him in speaking of them in the terms he employs. They require great 
caution in administering them, and Dr. Bourne never intrusis that duty to others, thus avoiding all danger. 

jeOJ^So many lying and forged certificates, and PRETENDED editorial recommendations are published, that those truthful 
statements of i"ac'ts which Dr. Bourne could offer, are withheld; rather than any should suppose they were merely " got up." 

ngj~Consultations without charge, and chaiges very moderate tor the benefits conferred. 

^t^QUlCK CURE— SURE CURE— (if curable)— is tho motto of Dr. BOURNE. 


South-east corner of Sansome and Commercial Sts., opposite St. Nicholas Hotel, San Francisco.

BRAGDON J. steamer commanded by Capt J. 

Polk, owned by California Steam Navigation 

Company, plys between San Francisco, Sa- 
cramento and Marysville — lands at Pacific 

This high pressure steamer was constructed In San 
Francisco during the fall of 1S61, under the supervi- 

sion of Capt. T. W. Lylcs, the materials, machinery, 
etc. for which were shipped fnim New Albany, Ind., 
and gotten up with an express view to her present 
trade, in which she has been very successful, never 
having met with an accident of a serious nature, and 
malting a large amount of money for her owners. 
March, 1S,54, in conjunction with the other river 
steamers, the J. Bragdon went into the possession of 
her present owners, who have recently spent much 
in repairs, ranking her among the first class high 
pressure steamers — so elegantly adapted for the 
river trade. Her dimensions are as follows : — Length 
of keel 150 feet, breadth of beam 26 feet, depth of 
hold 7 feet, has two high pressure engines, with 16 
inch cylinders, and 7 foot strolie; carrying capacity 
200 tuns.

BRANNAN SAMUT^L, real estate holder, office 
Masonic Hall, 3d floor, res Oriental Hotel 
Arrived in California, per ship Brooklyn, July 31st, 
1.S46; was the projector and publisher of the " Cali- 
fornia Star," January, 18-17 — the first journal printed 
in San Francisco, and became submerged into the 
present " Alta California." In the fall of 1S47, Mr. 
Brannan established a store, or trading post, at Sut- 
ter's Fort, under the name of C. C. Smith & Co., 
which was the first mercantile house located in the 
Sacramento Valley. The discovery of gold attracted 
an enormous trade to this point, and prices for every 
description of merchandise became at once enhanced 
to a wonderful degree — profits proportionate there- 
to. At this time, monthly sales by this house is 



said to have averaged $150,000 per month. In the 
affair of the " hounds," (a cla?s of lawless " despe- 
rado adventnrers," which infested the city during 
the fall of 1S49,) he took an active part, and aided 
materially in extirpatine the rascals from the town. 
In August of this year, he was elected a member of 
the first regular Town Council; and in 1851 was 
chosen President of the first Vigilance Committee. 
In 1S5-3, he was elected to the office of Senator of 
California, which position he was compelled to re- 
linquish, owing to business and private engagements 
in the Atlantic States. Sn passant— in reference 
to this gentleman we copy the following from the 
"Annals of San Francisco." — "From the earliest to 
the latest records (1S54) of San Francisco, we disco- 
ver him appearing at ever}' public meeting, and tak- 
ing a prominent part in municipal business. At one 
time he is encouraging the establishmont of the first 
school, and oifering handsome contributions to the 
building; at another, he is haranguing the people 
on the subject of the hounds; now, he takes on 
himself the responsibility of hanging a rogue by 
Lynch law, for the benefit of the citizens; now, he 
charitably bestows sufficient land for a cemetery to 
the Odd Fellows, of which Order he is an active 
member ; now, he bullies, reasons, and conquers in 
some purely municipal matters, urging a local im- 
provement, or where jobbing officials seek to line 
their pockets. His energy, abilities, force of char- 
acter and courage, are very great, and have been 
only the more conspicuously shown in face of those 
obstacles and dangers that would have hampered 
and filled with dread less bold and talented men."

The first number of the " Daily Eveninir Bulletin " was is- 
sued Oct. 8, 1855, by the present publishers, under the edi. 
torialbhip of James Kinp. of Wra. On the 8th Itecember 
following, Mr. .^bel Whitton purchased an interest in the 
paper, and is still one of the proprietors. It commenced its 
career on a very small scale, with a daily issue of l,00t) 
copies, its circulation however rapidly increased, and owing 
to the patronage received, its dimensions was from time to 
time enlarged to its present size, and has at present a larger 
circulation than any other newspaper in the State. Besides 
the daily, it aiso issues a weeltly for circulation in this 
State, and a semimonthly for circulation in the Atlantic 
States aud Europe, which latter (we are informed), has 
reaclted as high as 10,000 issues. This establishment em- 
ploys about 40 persons in its different departments, besides 
21 city carriers and 93 country agents. The actual expenses 
of the '• Bulletin " averages from $2,000 lo $2,300 per week, 
and is independent of that of its proprietors, whose invest, 
ment is said to be most profitable (an exception to those of 
a similar character in California, but more particularly so 
as a general rule in San Francisco)- .\fler the ever to be la- 
mented death of its editor, James King, of Wm. who fell by 
the hands of James P. Casey, on the 2t)th of May, 1856, his 
brother, Thomas S. King, assumed his position, and together 
with C. O. Gerberding and A. Whitton, compose the firm 
of C. O. Gerberding & Co., proprietors.

In connection with associations and joint stock companies, we 
have thought it not amiss to say a word, having strict refer- 
ence to the Califomia Steam Navigation Company, ■which 
may be justly claimed, stands at the bead of all associations 



in this state ; both in point of magnitude and power, as a 
monopoly affectiog the interests of all classes. Monopolists 
are odious to an American public ; and our citizens seldom 
discriminate in their denunciation — classing all as alike in- 
jurious lothecommon wchI ; but the philosophical observer 
of passing: events, and careful thinker upon tiueslions of polit- 
ical economy, is not carried away by popular catch-words, or 
deafened by noisy clamor ; and while lie freely admits the 
correctness of a general doctvine, can discover where its 
application admits of important modilicatioDS. We contend, 
and we think we have shown, that the establishment of this 
company, and its absorption of the steamboat property of 
California, was a great public beneht. [See Preface.] And

jCalifornia Chronicle newspaper, "Wm. L. NeweU 
proptr, office 95 Merchant 

The first number of this daily was issued on the 2lst of No- 
vember, 1853. It was commenced by an association of gen- 
tlemen, and was published by -them in the name of Fiank 
Soule ,^t Co., who, until a late date, presided over its edito- 
rial department. Under Mr. Soule's charee, it was con- 
ducted as an independent journal upon all subjects ; and, 
owing to the great care used in the character of miscellane- 
ous reading matter as well as the high standard of its edito- 
rial articles, it at once procured a large circulation, and was 
esteemed a worthy journal for the family circle. After the 
nomination of Col. Fremont for the Presidency, Mr. Newell 
became sole proprietor — >[r. Soule resigning his position. It 
is now conducted as a political journal, devoted to the prin- 
ciples of the Republican party.

The following sketch of the organization and establishment of 
the above church is from the pen of one of the members of 
the first Boixrd of Trustees :— In the years 18o3 and 1854 the 
number of families having increased in the city, and having 
begun to regard this conntrj- as their home, it was thuught 
the time had arrived for erecting a large cliurch edifice in 
a central location — furnishing it in as comtortable and at- 
tractive a manner as practicable — and for procuring a 
preacher who, by his ability and reputation, would induce 
young men, strangers and our citizens generally, to attend 
upon public worship with greater regularity. For this pur- 
pose, a letter was addressed to the Rev. W. A. Scott, D. D., 
then settled in New Orleans, requesting him to remove to 
this city, to aid in the formation of a new church and to be- 
come its pastor. Pr. Scott arrived in San Francisco on the 
19th of May, 1S54, and commenced his lalwrs in Musical 
Hall, Bu3h street, ontheStmday following. Afterward, \ry 

polite invitation of the officers of the Unitarian Church on 
Stockton street, (their pastor being absent,) be preached in 
thai church. 
On the 17ih of July, 185^, a society was formed, adopiing the 
name and title of the " Calvary Presbyterian Church and 
Congregation of San Francisco," to be connected with tlie 
*' old school " Presbyterian General Assembly ofthe United 
States, A constitution was adopted, and in accordance 
therewith, C. K. Garrison, James R. Robens, J. Carothers, 
E. W. Taylor, Thos. H. Selby, John Middlelon, H. C. 
Beales, Henry M. Hale and Lucius Bell, were chosen as a 
Board of Trustees. A Building Committee, consisting of 
Messrs. J. B. Roberts. H. M. Hale, John Middlelon, H. C. 
Reals and L. Bell, was also appointed, and on the ittli of 
Atigust, 1854, one-half of a 50-vara lot on Bush Street was 
purchased for the sum of 520,000, ca-sh. On the 25lh of the 
same month proposals from H. C, Brown were accepted to 
build a church on said lot, in accordance with a plan fur- 
nished by L. R. Townscnd. The building was finished in 
December following aud is in size — front 60 feet, depth lOQ^ 
feet, bight of the side walls from the surface of the grounri^ 
45 feet ; with a foundation of seven feet in depth. Style of 
architecture. Ionic Italian Corinthian. The pews in the 
main floor are arranged as arcs of circles having the pulpit 
for their center, which is placed in an arched recess. From 
the recess there is communicaiion with a two-story building 
in the rear ofthe church, used as a study and librarv room 
by the pastor. The galleries are on each side and end, 
having well cushioned seats which are kept entirely free. 
The mam floor with the galleries will convenienlly seat from 
1,000 to 1,2lK) persons. The gallery at the end" is used by 
the choir. In the rear of this gallery is a large well arrang- 
ed recess, in which to place a fine organ. There is now in 
the choir gallery a small organ of two slops, which was de- 
signed to be used temporarily until means could be furnished 
to procure one suitable to the church. The basement ofthe 
building is set apart in divisions, and used as Lecture. Sub- 
bath School and Library rooms, conveniently arranged and 
neatly furnished. The entire cost of the lot and improve- 
ments has been about S70.000. On account of great re- 
verses, many citizens who would have contributed largely, 
became unable to assist, materially, in prosecuting this 
enterprise, and as a consequence a heavy debt was left upon 
the church. A mortgage, the only debt now remaining, 
will expire on the 1st of January. 1S57, at which time also 
a number of responsible notes will become due which have 
been given to meet the mortgage in full. The annual ex- 
penses of the church are about SlS.OOO, -which amount is 
amply provided for by the rent of the pews on the main 
floor ofthe church and the ordinai-y Sunday collections.

Cemetery Jewish, situated five miles fi'om the 

city, Presidio Road 
Cemetery Lone Mountain, 2J miles "W". from 

Mont'y and directly op Cal'a, road mostly 

traveled leads from Bush 

This Cemetery was dedicated in June 1854, and is the proper- 
ty of private individuals, whose design is to incorporate it 
as soon as the incorporation law can be so amended as to 
enable them so to do. It contains an area of 160 acres. 
The grounds are beautifully undulating, with avenues lead- 
ing through the ravines and then gradually rising to an 
eminence, from which you have a commanding view of the 
surrounding country. On the South three-eigliths of a mile 
distant, stands the celebrated Lone Mountain, a lolly coni- 
cal shaped hill, from which the Cemetery derives its name. 
On the East lies the City and the Bay with the villages of 
Oakland, Alameda and Clinton, and in the distance Alount 
Diablo. On the North may be seen the Bay of San Pablo, 
Angels and Alcatraz Islands, Saucelito Bay and Village, 
and the entrance to the Golden Gate, On the West in tlie 
distance, you have the Farralone Islands and the Pacific 
Ocean, the roar of whose waves are sounding a continual 
reqnium as if to soothe the spirits of the dead. The shrub- 
bery is mostly evergreen, containing more than twenty dif- 
ferent kinds of flowering shrubs. More than fifteen hun- 
dred interments have already been made within the inclo- 
sure, and the improvements now made and others designed, 
with its natural beauties, bid fair to make this rival any of 
the rural cemeteries of the Atlantic States, OtEcers, David 
S, Tni-ner, Sam'I M. Bowman and John Perry, Jr, Trustees ; 
Nathaniel Gray, Managing Agent ; Joseph H, Atkinson, 
Superintendent ; F, B, Austin, Secretary, On the grounds 
is erected a receptacle vault capable of containing fifty 
bodies — also a chapel. First interment June 28, 1854. 
Monthly average of interments at this cemetery, 30.

This building was erected during 1851, by Thomas Magulre 
and others, for dramatic purposes, and opened as the Jenny 
Lind Theater, October 4th, of same year. Externally, it 
presented the same handsome appearance that it does at 
present. The interior was iitted up with exquisite taste ; 
and rivaled the most noted theaters in the Atlantic cities, 
not only in size, but in beauty and comlort. It had a capa- 
city for comfortably seating two thousand persons. The 
enterprise was a stupendous one, considering the .age of the 
city, and reflects great credit upon the projectors and own 
ers. During 1852, the building was purchased by the city 
for its present uses, at a sum exceeding two hundred thou- 
sand dollars. The whole of the interior was removed and 
fitted up for the special purposes to which it is now applied, 
viz : city and county offices, courts, city prison, etc.

Owing to the extent of this well-knoim establishment, we 
think it not amiss to revert 10 reminiscences connected 
therewith. It was established by two of its present proprie- 
tors, Messrs. Monson A Valentine, shortly after the fire of 
May 4th, 1S51, from material fomieily belonging to the 
"Public Balance," a newspaper office. The great part of 
the material was somewhat damaged bj- this calamity. 
On the first of Xovember, 1851, the office was removed to 
159 Montgomery Street ; from thence, in the fall of 1853, to 
124 Sacramento Street — ■' Times anilTmnscript " building ; 
and thence, on the first of.^pril, 1S55. to present location. 
Additions to its material and machinery were made from 
time to time, giving it now a most prominent position, not 
only as regards the extent of its facilities, but the charac- 
ter of its work. The Commercial office wss the first ex- 
clusively Book and Job Steam-Printing office established 
on the Pacific coast Its steam-presses Bend forth, not 
only very many miscellaneous publications, but the docu- 
ments and laws of the State Government. The Laws and 
Journals of the Third .Session of the Legislature were print- 
ed at this office, and were the first executed in California. 
January Isl, 1S56, Mr. W, P. Morrill became interested as 
one of the proprietors. The mechanical department is un-

Confidence steamer, owned by California Steam 
Navigation Company, is kept as a reserve 
boat between San Francisco and Sacramento 

This vessel was constructed by W. H. Brown, for Thomas 
Hunt, to ply between New York and Albany. She was 
fitted up for her pa.'isage to San Francisco in 1850, under 
command of Capt. J. P. Gannett, where she arrived Feb'y, 
1851, consigned to Messrs. Vassault & Co. , who immediately 
had her fitted up for her present trade, and in conjunction 
with the Wilson G. Hniit, formed what was known as the 
"Union Line," and with considerable success ran in oppo- 
sition to the "Old Line," viz; Senator and New World. 
The Confidence came into possession of her present owners 
upon the formation of the company, March, 1854; butowing 
to her lack of facilities for carrying freif^ht, other vessels 
with greater capacity have taken her place — conseciuently 
she has been little used of late. Her dimensions are as fol- 
lows—length of keel, 172 ft. 4 in.; breadth of beam, 28 ft.; 
depth of hold, 8 ft. lin.; andhas nmeasurement of 370 tuns.

This church, or congregation, was organized July 29. 1849, 
when Thomas Douglass and Frederick S. Hawley were 
chosen Deacons, and inducted into office on the following 
Sunday by Rev. T. D. Hunt, assisted by Rev. A. Williams. 
"The Society met in tlie school -house on the Plaza until it 
was required for other purposes, when the members were 
deprived of a regular place of meeting for several months. 
As early as practicable, however, efforts were made for the 
erection of a suitable house of worship, which resulted in 
the building of a commodious frame structure 25 by 50 feet, 
on the comer of Jackson and Virginia Streets, which was 
dedicated to the worship of God, February 10, 1850. Rev. 
T. D. Hunt was chosen pastor, and installed June 26, 1850, 
who in this connection, it is proper to state, was the first 
Protestant clergyman, located as such, in the State ; having 
arrived at San Francisco as early as October 29, 1848, and 
was immediately invited bv the citizens, in a meeting called 
for the purpose, to act as their chaplain for one year, com- 
mencing Nov. 1, 1848, in which capacity he was laboring 
at the time of the organization of this church. The congre- 
tion increased so greatly as to require a larger bonse ; ac- 

cordingly, measures were adopted in the summer of 1852, ' 
for the erection of the present substantial briclc edifice, 
which was dedicated on the lOtb of July, 1853. Kev, E. S. 
Lacy was installed July 6th, 1856-

Eureka Typographical Union of San Francisco 

(No. 21 of the Xatioual Union.) Organized Not. 20, 1854. 
Objects : — ■' The maintenance of a fair rate of wages — the 
encouragement of good workmen — and the prompt payment 
of their earnings." Since the organization of this Society, 
one hundred and eighty printers have enrolled themselves 
as members. May 7lh, 1855. the " Enreka" was admitted 
into the " National. Typographical Union." which body 
comprises delegates from similar societies in every promi- 
nent city of the United States, and is designed as a means 
for more effectually carrying out the principles adopted by 
subordinate Unions. The jurisdiction of the "Eureka" only 
embraces the city of San Francisco ; but, by general con- 
sent, its rules and regulations govern the craft throughout 
the State — there being no oilier regillaily organized Society 
except in the city of Sacramento. Pfeseut Officer? : — Alex.

Major H. is emphatically a pioneer on the Pacific coast, hav- 
ing emigrated to Oregon in 1843. Soon afterward visited 
Capt. Sutler at New Helvetia, (now Sacramento,) with 
whom he formed business relations which continned for a 
long period, and were closed highly to their mutnal satis- 
faction. Maj. Hensley was a leaderin the liear Flag move- 
ment, commanding a battalion, and othei-wise by his great 
inSuence sustaining that enterprise. After the close of the 
Mexican war, Maj. Hensley established a mercantile house 
in Sacramento City, and in 1849 was located at the old em- 
barcadero, corner of Front and I Streets. Afterward he- 
established a banking house at that place, under the firm or- 
Hensley, Merrill & Co., which enjoyed the contiden^ 'of 
the community— a confidence never abusei — until closed 
by the removal of Mr. M, to the EastemStates. Duringthe 
earlj years of his residence in Oregon and California, .Maj. 
H. was employed in surveying, trapping and exploring, and 
is, probably, practically better acquainted with the geogra- 
phy of the rivers of Oregon and this State, than any other 
man, — particularly of the sources of the Sacramento, which 
in his various expeditions he fully explored. Maj. Hensley 
has a beautiful place near San Jose, where, in the posses- 
sion of an ample fortune, he is surrounded with the com- 
forts and luxuries of civilization, in a home created by him- 
self from the wilderness of his early experience. 



Hensley Helen, steamer, commanded by Capt. 
E. C. M. Chadwick, and owned by the Cal. 
Steam Navigation Co.; employed in the Sac- 
ramento and Marysville trade ; loads at Pa- 
cific Street Wharf 

The Helen Heni^ley was built in Pan Fmifcisco, nnderthe 
superintendence of Ciipt. James Whitney, Jr., who was a 
joint owner with Col. S. J. Hensley, the late Jatnes Blair, 
E. C. M. Chadwick, and John Folk, the original proprie- 
tors. The Helen Hensley is built after the style ot the 
lDap:nificent Mississippi packets, with elegant cabins, state 
rooms, halls, etc., extending nearly the entirelength of the 
boat, elevated above the main deck, and entirely discon- 
nected with the freight. room and gcnerftl business of the 
boat, and affording ample room for exercise and recreation, 
necessarily more restricted on boats differently constructed. 
She is propelled by two powerful high-pressure engines, 
and is not surpassed in speed by any boat upon the waters. 
Her superior accommodations, and the popular manners of 
Capt. Chadwick, have rendered the Hensley a favorite, 
doing full justice to the amiable and accomplished lady 
(Mrs. Samuel J. Hensley) from whom she derives her name. 
Dimensions : Length of keel, 175 feet , breadth ot beam, 30

Was elected Chief Engineer of the Fire Department in the 
month of Dec. 1851. Re-elected to same position Dec. 1S52. 
Owing to business in the East he resigned said office Oct. 
185.'5. Sir. H. discharged the duties of bis position with 
distinguished ability and success, and did much— verj- 
mncli. towards the full and complete organization of Hu 
Association which is perhaps unsurpassed by any city in 
the United States. In public enterprise this gentleman 
stands prominent. His name is not only familiar to tba 
"boys" who run with the " machine." but in the family 
circle as that of household words. Upon Mr. Hossetrosa' 
return from the East he engaged in the business of raising 
brick buildings hy means of hydraulic machinery, which 
worked witii complete success.

Mr. Larkin arrived in California in April, 1832 ; the next year 
married a lady from Massachusetts ; the ceremony wasper- 
tbvmed on board an American vessel from Honolulu, lying 
at Monterey, by Jno. C. Jones, Esq., American Consul at 
the Sandwicli Islands, then en route for home. Mrs. L. was 
the first American lady who settled in California, and their 
children the first fnll-blooded Yankees bornin this country. 
In 1844, Mr. Larkin received the appointment of Consul of 
the U, S. for California, the only consular agent for that 
government in the country. Afterwards appointed U. S. 
Naval Agent for the N. W." coast of America ; and in 1847, 
hy appointment of Commodore Shubrick, was made U. S. 
Naval Storekeeper. In every position Mr. L. has faithl^ully 
and ably discharged all the public duties pertaining to it. 
For his important and faithful services during the period of 
the war, Mr. L. received the thanks of the Navy Department 
with the acceptance of his resignation. As one of the ear- 
liest American settlers, his every interest — family and for- 
tune — is identified with the country, having a thorough ac- 
quuiutance with all its history, and familiarity with its re- 
sources and its wants, Mr. L. occupies a prominent and pe- 
culiar position before the people of California.

Mr. Latham arrived in Calitbrnia in the winter of 1850, and, 
for a short time, served as clerk in tlie court of Judge Til- 
ford, then Recorder of San Francisco. In the spring of that 
year he removed to Sacramento, (which has ever since been 
nis permanent home,) and formed a law partnership with 
James B. Haggin, Esq. and (Jov. Bigier ; this firm changed 
to Haggin, Latham & Monsou. In 1851, Mr. L. was elected 



District Attorney for the Sixth Judicial District, at that 
time composed ot the counties of Sacramento and EI Dorado. 
The laithful and able discharge of his duties in tlial office 
won for him the confidence and esteem of his fellow citizens, 
and tended, in no small ilegree, to his subsequent political 
advancement. At the Democratic State Convention held 
at Sacramento in 1S52 lor the appointment of delegates to 
the National Convention, Mr, L. was elected President; 
and, at the regular annual convention, received the nomina- 
tion to Congress, to which position he was dulv elected in 
the fall of that j-ear. In September, 1S55, Mr. Latham was 
aptwinted to his present position, succeeding R. P. Ham- 
mond, Esq. Scarcely thirty years of age, .Mr. Latham has 
filled a large space in the public eye of California, and his 
career, eminently successful m every respect, is a speaking 
evidence of what may be effected by determination and per- 
severance, aided by talent, purity of character and system- 
atic industry.

This complete and extensive establishment unsurpassed in

present proprietor in conjunction with bis associate, com- 
menced business in the infancy of the city, and has partici. 
pated in its early vicisitudes caused bv the conflagrations 
which were so destructive. In the early part of 1853, the 
present splendid structure occupied by Mr. LeCount was 
erected at an e.xpense of S82.0()0, and exhibits in all its de- 
tails completeness of adaptation, the result of the perfect 
acquaintance of its enterprising owner, in the business in 
which be is engaged. It is 26 by 90 feet, and four stories 
in hight. One of its early and most successful merchants, 
Mr. L. considers as his permanent home the city which his 
enterprise has aided to enlarge and adorn.

Tile persevering enterprise of this gentleman and the rela- 
tioii of bis cITorts with lire early progress of the city, are en- 
titled to notice. 

Mr. M. arrived here in September, 18-19. Soon afterwards he 
became proprietor of the Parker Uoiise, and after tlie May 
fire of 1850 erected on its site the Parker House, and first 
Jenny Lind Theater. Tho Theater was lea,sed by James 
Stark, Esq.. who, lor twelve months, consecutively, paid a 
nifihlly Tent o/$175. In 1851 these premises were iigain de- 
Btrnyed in the great conflagration of tliat year, and again 
their energetic owner erected the Hotel and Theater, still 
again doomed to utter destruction in 1852, when Mr Ma. 
guire determined to build a permanent structure that slionld 
be fire proof. Aided by the sale of a portion of the ground, 
and the immense rental in prospect, with an unlimited cre- 
dit, he built the Jenny Lind Theater, at a cost, iudepeudent 

of the ground, of 8160,000. The subsequent history of this 
edifiee and its conversion into the City Hall, are well 
known to all. The outlay of Mr. M. in improvements, du. 
ring his residence in San Francisco, will not vary much 
from a half million of dollars. Notwithstanding losses and 
embarrassments of the most discouraging character, the 
business tact and energy of Mr. M. has never forsaken him, 
and he has evolved success when utter prostration appear- 
erl inevitable. 
The immense success which has attended the Minstrel Con- 
certs has induced Mr. M. to build, and he has now under 
contract a new San Francisco Hall, to be erected on the 
present site, 50 by 150 feet, with an elevation of 50 feet, and 
which, wlien coinpleted according to the plans, will be one 
of the most beautiful edifices of tho kind in the United

President ; Joshna P. Haven, Vice-President ; C. E. Bow- 
ers, Treasurer; "W. H. Stevens, Recording Secretary; Dr. 
Henry Gibbons, Corresponding Secretary ; and Messrs. E. 
P. Flint, E. E. Dunbar. D. H. Haskell and J. B. Crockett, 
Directors. This association has been caiefully and ably 
raanaized and freneroiisiy nurtured, and bids fair to take 
rank in extent and importance with its kindred institutions 
in New York, Boston and Cincinnati. The IJbrary now 
contains about five thousand volumes of mis'-eilaneous 
books, includingr selections of the best works in every branch 
of literature, wth a valuable collection of works of refer- 
ence, and several complete sets of English and American 
periodicals, and bound files of California newspapers. The 
rooms are open from 9 o'cleck, A. JM., to 10 o'clock, P. M., 
ever>- day except Sundays. In addition to the Library and 
Reading Rooms, there arc apartments for conversation, 
plnyine at chess, draughts, etc. The terms of admission to 
the Rooms and Library*, are five dollars initiation-fee and 
one dollar per month, payable quarterly. The present of- 
ficers are — F. A. Woodworth, Pres't ; E. H. Washburn, 
Vice-Pres't: W. C. Hyde, Rec. Sec'y ; E. H. Howard, Cor. 
Sec'y ; VTm. R. Garrison. Treas'r ; H. H. Moory, Librarian; 
and a Board of nine Directors. The influence of an insti- 
tution of this character, properly directed, cannot be esti- 
mated ; and it can scarcely be doubted that the Esprit du 
Corps of our mercantile community will suptain and enlarge 
this association, by confiding its management to energetic 
and talented men, and by liberally contributing to its sup-

Pjeied a hne uf Telegraph to Point Lobos (south head), en- 
abling them to report as soon as they can be signalized at

Line is the Pioneer erection of that character on the Pacific 
Coast. In July, 1&55. the Exchange was located in its pru- 
sont commodious rooms, where can be found files of the 
leading newspapers, foreign and domestic. The merchants 
of San Francisco, with generous sagacity, have always lib- 
erally sustained this important enterprise.

prptr, "W. s Montgomery, bet Wasli'n and 


On the 24th Pec, 1853, this spacious and elegant temple of 
histrionic Hrt, just finished under the supervision of tliat 
talented architect, Mr. Joseph Trench, was opened by Mrs. 
Catherine N. Sinclair. For a period of about eijrhteen 
months this lady presided over the management, during 
which many celebrated and talented " Stars " filled en- 
gagements, of whom mav be named Mesdames Alma Bish- 
op, .-Vnna Thillon, Bariili Thome and Williams ; Misses 
Catharine Hayes, the Rousset Sisters, Laura Keene. Susan 
and Kate Benin ; Messrs. Jas. E. Murdock. J, Hudson, 
Jas. Stark, Barney Williams and J. J, Neafie, The stock 
company included many prominent performers, among 
whom were Mesdames Judali, Woodward, Thomftu, Mans- 
Ijeld, Booth and Burrill; Misses Julia (Jould and Montague ; 
Messrs. Edwin S. Booth, J. B. Booth, J. A. Phelps, Chap- 
man, Coad, Smith, Rand, Wilder, Anderson, Barrv and 
Collins, etc., with Mr. J. Torrence as Machinist and j, W. 
Fairchild as Scenic Artist. For about two-thirds of the 
time Mrs. S. had the Metropolitan up to Jan., 1S55, the re- 
ceipts were enormous, amounting to S400,0OO. Dmn'ng the 
interval, from the abandonment of the management by Mrs. 
S. and its assumption by Mr. Torrence, the direction was 
transitory, with ijnctuating .success — but the ample means 
of that gentleman, united toskillful management and afranb 
and courteous address, have established the Metropolitan 
under his auspices as a permanent institution.

This iiiBtitiition was established by the Rev. Mr. Speer, who 
in 1853 commenced the erection of the present structure, 
which on Sunday, June 4lh, 1S5J, M'as dedicated to its sa- 
cred purposes. The building is lorty-four feet on Sacra- 



mento Street, by thirty-seven and ahalrfeet on Stockton: 
two stories in bight, with a basement and cellar. The base- 
ment is divided into rooms for a school, dispensary, etc. 
The chapel, accommodating about three hundred persons, 
is located in the principal storj'. The tipper story is occu- 
pied as the dwelling of the pastor. The building is a sub- 
stantial and handsome edifice. This enterprise was com- 
menced by the reverend genllemau in July, 1853, when at 
the close of a series of lectures on the subject of the Chinese 
and the .Slission. eight thousand dollars were subscribed 
tor its objects. The entire cost of building and lot has been 
about twenty-five thousand dollars — mostly the contribu- 
tions of our "generous citizens. A debt of S6.500 has been 
necessarily incurred in placing the building in its present 
condition, which is still unpaid. The property is held by a 
Board of nine Trustees, under the general act concerning 
corporations. The first Board were Messrs. T. H. Selby, 
D. S. Turner, T. .idams. H. C. Bcals, E. Knight. I. P. 
Rankin, S. Franklin, J. B. Roberts and E. P. Flint. The 
religious direction of the institution is in the hands of the 
" Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church." 
A Church, in connection with the Mission, was organized 
after the Presbyterian form, November 6 1S53. In the 
building, there have been maintained a Depository for Chi- 
nese scriptures and tracts, a Dispensary for the sick, a 
Nighl-Scliool, and an Office for the " Oriental," a monthly 
religious newspaper, printed on one side in Chinese and the 
other in English.

of Capt. E. Wakeman, consigned to Chas. Minturn, Esq. 
Alter undergoing the requisite alterations, she was placed 
on the line in connection with the Senator. In 1834, she be- 
came the property of her present owners. The New World 
is 216 feet keel, 27 loet beam, 9 3-12 feet hold—measuring 
524 tuns. Her excellent accommodations, speed, and the 
courtesy of her officers, have sustained the N. W. as a pop- 
ular boat. Excepting one or two slight accidents, she has 
been successfully and almost constantly employed, since her 
arrival in 1850. in the trade for which she was designed by 
her original owner, Mr. Brown.

This company organized 1856. and are the successors of the 
Accessory Transit Co. of Nicaragua, which was recently 
overthrown by the present dynasty in Nicaragua. Th'e 
prominent men of the new company are Cornelius K. Garri- 
son, ot San Francisco, and Charles Morgan, of New York, 
who are the holders of a grant from the Nicarftguan trovern- 
ment ceding the exclusive right of way over the I.-^thmns 
of Nicaragua. The steamers at present running in the line 
are the Sierra Nevada and the Orizaba, on tlie Pacific Ocean, 
and the Texas on the Atlantic. New ships are now upon 
the stocks at New York, destined for the service of this 
company on this coast, and their dimensions are greater tlian 
those of any steamship ever yet built at the port of New 
York, viz : 325 feet length of keel, 42 feet breadth of beam, 
and 22 feet depth of bold— burden. 3.000 tuns. They an- 
bnilt for great speed, and it is intended that the time to New 
Y'ork. via Nicaragua, shall he reduced to less than 18 days, 
early next summer, when the new ships will be finished, 
and have taken theirplaces in the line. The gentlemen en- 
gaged in this enterprise are men of large fortune, well kuowu 
euergy. and great experience in steamship business.

This extensive Company was organized March 12, 1S55, im- 
raediately subsequent to the failure of the grcRt house of 
Adams &, Co., by a number of the employees of that firm, 
who commenced their enterprize TCilh till the advantages 
rCKnltinp from a thoroiifrh training in that unrivaled estab- 
lishment, an ample capital, and the scarcely-disturbed ar- 
rangements of their predecessors. By rigrid attention to 
business, perfection of detail, and strict probity, this house 
has built up a business whose ramifications penetrate every 
avenue of commerce throughout the civilized world. A re- 
organization of the concern has recently taken place, which 
with enlarged capital, gives increased facilities.

E. s First bet Mission and Howard 

These Works were established on their present location Sept. 
1S50. by Egery &. Hinkley. The improvements consisted 
of a one-story frame building, 50x50. in which a general 
foundry and machine business was transacted. Hecember, 
1853. the present proprietors (E. B. Croddard, W. A. Pal- 
mer and E. B. Galusha, comprising ihe firm of Coddard & 
Co.) purchased the intere.«:t of the original owners — erected 
a three-story building. 30xG0 — and added greatly, by im- 
provements In machinery, etc., to former facilities formeei- 
ing the increase of trado. On the premises is a steam ham- 
mer with a capacity of 1}-^ tims, — said lo be the only one in 
operation on the Pacific coast, with the exception of that in 
the Xavy Yard. The cupolas, two in nnmber. have a capa- 
city of melting 12 tuns of metal per day. The Works em- 
plov from 50 to 80 men, and the average annual business is 
5240,000 per annum.

Incorporated in New York in 1849, witli an original capital of 
S750,(XiO. subsequently enlarged to the sum of $3,600,000. 
The California, Orejron and Panama were the first steamers 
dispatched to the Pacific, The California arrived at this 
place on the 28th Fehruarj, 1849, the Oregon on 31st March. 
1849, The former was deserted by her crew — who went 
"gold hunting " — and detained in port for several months. 
Tha Oregon got away on the 11th of .\pril on her first re- 
turn trip. The present sleamera owned by this mammoth 
company are the liolden Gale, Golden Age, Jno. L. Ste- 
phens, Sonora, Xortherner, Columbia, Republic. Fremont, 
Constitution, and the pioneer steamers California, Oregon 
and Panama. The Columbia is engaged in the Oregon trade, 
and has made one hundred and nine voyages without an ac- 
cident. The company have lost two steamers, viz : the 
Tennessee, in March, IS53, and Winfield .^cotr, Pec.j 1854, by 
shipwreck. Not a single life has been lost, however, by ex- 
plosion or collision, which is certainly creditable to the pru- 
dent management of such a fleet of steamers. During the 
existence of the company, they have safely conveyed from 
our shores the gold export of the counti^y to the enormous 
extent of from three millions to four millions of dollars per

The long established popularity of the Orleans Hotel, renders any notice 
of the character of its accommodations useless ; recent additions and im- 
provements thereto, however, demand public attention, and rank the house 
as a Hotel 

not only as regards its dimensions, but in the character of its superior 

arrangements for the comfort and entertainment of its guests. 
The Building covers an area of 85x160 feet, and is built of brick, FIEE 
PROOF, and from three to four stories in hight. It has a capacity for 


Dining Room, Billiard Saloon, Parlors, etc. 

Have been enlarged and otherwise improved by additions to 

THE TABLE— Bears the choice of the Market. 

THE READING- ROOM— Has the news of the day, from all parts of 
the United States and Europe. 

THE BILLIARD SALOON— Is furnished with tables of the finest work- 

THE BAR — Is supplied with the most choice Liquors and Cigars. 

^ ' • O • ' 

The Orleans is the Depot and OflSce of the OALITORNIA STAGE OOMPANT, 
and is vrithin one square of the Steamboat Landing, making it the very center of 
traveling intercourse. The House is open at all hours, and persons arriving by the 
Boats or Stages in the night, can be accommodated with rooms. 

J^" FAMILIES will find in the Orleans a home, and will be accommodated with

pastor. "This congregation was organized May 20, 1849, 
under the pastoral care of Rev. Albert Williams, and was 
the first Protestant Society in San Francisco. W. W. Cald- 
well Dr. Geo. F. Turner, U. S. A., Frederick Billings, 
Sarah B. Gillespie, Ann Hodghton and M. A. Geary, were 
the original members; and Bezer Simmons, ElihuWood. 
ruff and Hiram Grimes, first trustees. For about eighteen 
months the congregation worshipped in a tent on Dupont 
street, except the interval of the wet season, when they met 
in the Custom House. Jan. 19, 1851, a neat antique gothic 
edifice, capable of accommodating seven hundred persons, 
was dedicated. This building was destroyed by the great 
fire in June 22, 1851. In October of the same year a plain 
and unpretending structure was erected in which the con- 
gregation now meet. Efficient measures are in progress for 
the erection of a large and beautiful building, the congrega- 
tion being in n prosperous state, possessing within itself all 
the elements of strength and ethciency. Messrs. Billings, 
Grant, Weller, Osborn, Henry Haight and Jas. DeFreemery, 
are the present trustees. Number of communicants, one 
hundred and tbrty. The Rev. Mr. Williams, compelled by 
ill-health, resigned Oct. 8, 1854, and the present pastor 
entered upon his duties Nov. 1, 1855.

destitute of devotional facilities. Under the auspices of the 
present pastor, the building at present occupied by the 
congregation was dedicated June 17, 1851, and was the first 
public building erected in the city with hard finished plas- 
tered walla.

ets, with elegant cabins, state-rooms, halls, etc., extending 
almost the entire length of the boat, situated abuve the 
main deck, and entirely disconnected with the freight room 
and other business of the boat, thus affording ample room 
for exercise and pleasure, to a great extent restricted on 
beats differently constructed. Site is propelled by two pow- 
erful high pressure engines, and is not surpassed in speed 
by any boat upon the Calilbmia waters. Dimensions; length 



of keel, 185 feet ; breadth of benm. 31 feet ; depth of hold, 
9>^ feet ; carrying capacity, 450 tuns. The bull was built

City made her first trip on the 4th of November, 1854, and 
ran with success up to February, 1855, since which time, 
by nrranfrement with the Calitbmia Steam Navigation Com- 
pany, she has been laid in ordinary.
