o the operations of gold-mining, and was very hard upon the thousands of houseless men and women who dwelt in the mountains, and even in the towns. Most of the natives and old inhabitants had returned to their ranches and houses; yet there were not roofs enough in the country to shelter the thousands who had arrived by sea and by land. The news had gone forth to the whole civilized world that gold in fabulous quantities was to be had for the mere digging, and adventurers came pouring in blindly to seek their fortunes, without a thought of house or food. Yerba Buena had been converted into San Francisco. Sacramento City had been laid out, lots were being rapidly sold, and the town was being built up as an entrepot to the mines. Stockton also had been chosen as a convenient point for trading with the lower or southern mines. Captain Sutter was the sole proprietor of the former, and Captain Charles Weber was the owner of the site of Stockton, which was as yet known as French camp.

Wool commanded the Department of California, rnor replied, I agree with you perfectly, and have come down from Sacramento to assist. Coleman rejoined that the people were tired of it, an matter had ended there, and accordingly the Governor returned to Sacramento in disgust, and I went about my business. But it soon became mano ahead. We soon parted; John-son and Douglas taking the boat to Sacramento, and I to San Francisco.

my house on Harrison Street; so I occupied a room in the bank, No. 11, and boarded at the Meiggs House, corner of Broadway and Montgomery, which we owned. Having reduced expenses to a minimum, I proceeded, with all possible dispatch, to collect outstanding debts, in some instances making sacrifices and compromises. I made some few sales, and generally aimed to put matters in such a shape that time would bring the best result. Some of our heaviest creditors were John M. Rhodes & Co., of Sacramento and Shasta; Langton & Co., of Downieville; and E. H. Strange, of Murphy's. In trying to put these debts in course of settlement, I made some arrangement in Downieville with the law-firm of Spears & Thornton, to collect, by suit, a certain note of Green & Purdy for twelve thousand dollars. Early in April, I learned that Spears had collected three thousand seven hundred dollars in money, had appropriated it to his own use, and had pledged another good note taken in part payment of three thou

sta College in 1826; admitted to the bar in 1830. In addition to his legal studies he was interested in military matters and became brigadier-general in the Missouri State militia. In 1838 he compelled the Mormons (q. v.)under Joseph Smith, to give up their leaders for trial, lay down their arms, and leave the State. In 1846 he entered the United States service as colonel of the 1st Missouri Regiment; in December of that year he defeated a superior force of Mexicans at Brazito River (q. v.); two days later he occupied El Paso. In February, 1847, with less than 1,000 men, after a march of over 200 miles through a sterile country, he met a force of 4,000 Mexicans at the pass of Sacramento. He attacked with such vigor that the Mexicans were soon overpowered, having lost over 800 in killed and wounded, Doniphan's own loss being one man killed, eleven wounded. He subsequently marched 700 miles through a hostile country until he reached Saltillo. He died in Richmond, Mo., Aug. 8, 1887.
