Stockton, San Joaquin Co., CA
6-11 OCTOBER 1862
>>MONDAY, 6 OCT 1862<<
MARRIED -- in Sonora, Sept. 25th, Mr. Wm. CONDON to Miss Mary Ann SUTHERLAND.
ANOTHER SHOOTING AFFRAY -- On Tuesday last, says
the Sonora Flag, 2 men named HAYES and DUNBAR,
residents of Curtisville, in this county
[Tuolumne], got into a quarrel about a chicken,
or some other frivolous matter, and, as is too
commonly the case, from words came to shooting at
each other. DUNBAR fired twice at HAYES without
hitting him, when HAYES fired and struck DUNBAR
in the mouth, the ball passing out of his cheek.
HAYES surrendered himself to the authorities and
is now under arrest. Both the men are married and
have families residing at Curtisville.
>>TUESDAY, 7 OCT 1862<<
MARRIED -- in Columbia, Sept. 30, A.F. DEXTER to Miss Emma DUNBAR.
DIED -- at Pine Log. Tuolumne county, Oct. 1, Joseph RENOLDS, aged 37.
DEATH of a CALIFORNIAN -- Capt. James A. GRANT,
formerly owner and commander of the steamer
Camanche, plying between Sacramento and
Marysville, died on the Arkansas river, lately, of heart disease.
BY MAGNETIC TELEGRAPH -- San Francisco, Oct. 6 --
-Horace P. JAMES, a lawyer, fell dead at the
corner of Second and Folsom streets at 4 ½
oclock a.m., as he was ascending the hill. It is
supposed he died from heart disease.
-MASSEY, a celebrated English watchmaker, was
found dead in his room this morning. He evidently died on Friday.
>>WEDNESDAY, 8 OCT 1862<<
GEORGE TANNANT -- This gentleman, who by courage
and intelligence in battle, received a captains
commission in the Federal army, was killed at the
battle of Culpepper. He was in command of a
Massachusetts company, from Springfield. Captain
TANNANT was some years ago the agent of Wells,
Fargo & Co., at Mokelumne Hill, where he has many friends.
POLICE COURT -- James WELDEN, a private in
Company D, now stationed at Camp Hooker, who
had a difficulty in the street with Lieut.
USTICK, and got his head cut by a stroke with a
pistol in the hands of the latter, and who was
arrested by officer RATHBONE and lodged in jail
on Monday night, was taken before the Police
Judge yesterday morning, and discharged. Lieut.
USTICK was likewise arrested and held to bail for
his appearance yesterday. On appearing in Court
he demanded a jury trial. Upon the charge of
aggravated assault the jury failed to agree -- 7
for acquittal and 5 for conviction. The case will be tried again today.
GEORGE SHIRLY, is the name of a German who was
found drowned on the sea beach near Fort Point on
Sunday last. He had gone in to bathe, and further
is not known, save that his clothes were found in
a cave near at hand and his dead body on the beach.

oclock this morning from apoplexy or heart disease.

>>THURSDAY, 9 OCT 1862<<

8th, Sarah, daughter of John F. and Jane WOOD,
aged 7 years, 3 months, 14 days. [The funeral
will take place at the Methodist Church today at 2 oclock p.m.]
FOUND -- In this city, Oct. 6, 1862, a Promissory

which the owner can have be calling at this
office and paying for this advertisement.
TO BE HUNG -- One BIRKBECK, a very aged man, was
found guilty of murder in the 1st degree and
sentenced to by hung at Nevada on Saturday last.
CHINESE MARRIAGE -- Yesterday Judge Brush joined
the hands of AH CHOW and LIN CHOE in the bonds of
matrimony. It appears that the marriage was
rather an unexpected affair for 1 party at least.
Madamoselle CHOE, it seems, borrowed $500 from a
Mongolian swain to purchase bridal garments; but
as soon as she had fixed her hair with a pound of
lard, purchased new cradle-footed shoes and a
handkerchief to keep the flies off the dressing
of her hair, she concluded to throw off her
creditor and cast her lot with AH CHOW, Esq.
DIVORCE SUIT -- B.H. KERRICK has filed his
application in the District Court, for a divorce
from his wife, S.A. KERRICK, on the ground of desertion.
TAKEN TO CAMP -- Two deserters from Company A,
named SHANKLAND and WILLIAMS, who had been
arrested and were locked up in jail for safe
keeping, were taken to Camp Hooker on Tuesday night.
CALIFORNIA BROOMS -- Mr. Thomas WARD has an
extensive broom-corn manufactory on the corner of
Market and Commerce streets, in this city. The
material used is grown in this State, and the
business conducted by Mr. WARD in Stockton, is,
we believe, mainly from material raised in San
Joaquin and Stanislaus counties.
The business of broom making in California is
more extensive than persons may at first glance
suppose. Broom-corn is grown, less of more, all
the way from Los Angeles to Marysville; and
although there is probably not more than 300 tons
of straw, or brush, raised, the quantity of
brooms manufactured is very great -- between 36,000 and 40,000 dozen.
Out of this 300 tons of broom-corn, there are
about $150,000 worth of brooms manufactured; and
not exceeding 2/3 of this quantity is used in
this State. At least 1/3 of the whole is exported
to Oregon, Victoria, Australia and the Sandwich
Islands. Mr. WARD has an agency in the Sandwich
Islands, and likewise supplies a large quantity
of brooms of his own manufacture to the Oregon
and Victoria markets, and also fills orders
received from the Russian Possessions.
Besides his manufactory in Stockton, he has an
establishment in San Francisco, where, for a
number of years past, he has pursued this
business. In the neighborhood of Burns Ferry,
Stanislaus county, Mr. ISLIP raised, this season,
about 18 tones of broom corn, and in San Joaquin
county there is probably not exceeding 5 or 6
tons produced. That referred to in Stanislaus
county grows too rank, that is, attains to too
great a length for 1st class brooms, and is
ranked No. 2; but Mr. WARD informs us that his
can be remedied by planting the corn thicker in
the drills, for when it grows thick or close
together, the result is fine, short, brushy corn
-- the best for No. 1 brooms. This gentleman
likewise ways that cultivators should invariably
plant the *black seed corn,* [in italics] as it
produces a finer and more brushy staple.
Besides No. 1, 2 and 3 brooms for house use,
brooms are being manufactured expressly for the
use of miners on their claims. Sluice brooms has
long been a desideratum with the miner, and from
what we have seen of this quality, we believe
they will meet with a ready and extended sale.
Heavy stable brooms are also made by Mr. WARD,
and there is little doubt but they will be
eagerly sought after as soon their quality
becomes generally known. We need no longer send
out of the State for brooms. Stockton, for the
future, will be fully prepared to supply the demand of the Southern mines.
