SUICIDE of a PIONEER SACRAMENTAN - Aug. 31 - A lamentable occurrence took place in this city [Sacramento] this morning, between 8 and 9 o'clock at the head of Twelfth street and just north of the line of the Central Pacific Railroad. Some men engaged in removing soil from the old bed of the American river saw a man who was bleeding from the throat. It was discovered that it was Thomas ROSS, a well known and respected citizen. His place of business was at the NE corner of J and Eighth streets. Mr. ROSS had cut his throat with a razor, the cause being financial difficulties, as we are informed. He was attended by Drs. SIMMONS and OATMAN and lingered till nearly noon, when he expired. Everything was done to save him, but without avail. Mr. ROSS was a pioneer and a highly esteemed citizen. He has in this city a number of relations, who will feel keenly his departure. He was high in the order of F.&A.M., and a member of the Order of Odd Fellows. His life was insured for $2500 in the office of the North Western Mutual Life Insurance Company.

>>WEDNESDAY, 2 SEPT 1868<<

PERSONAL - Mr. COFFIN ("Carlton" of the Boston 'Journal') remained in this city yesterday and will leave this morning on a trip to Yo Semite. He is accompanied by his wife and several friends from San Francisco. On his return from his trip to the mountains he will start for his home in Boston. When he reaches that place he will have completed a journey around the world. Accompanied by Dr. HOLDEN, Mr. COFFIN and lady visited the Pavilion yesterday and were much pleased with the exhibition, particularly with the fruit. We wish them a pleasant trip to the mountains and a safe return to their home in the East. "Carlton's" impression of California will be anxiously looked for and read by the many admirers on the Pacific Coast of a writer of his experience, extensive travel, descriptive power and reliability.

MRS. HEIDENGER, the unfortunate woman who killed her child and attempted her own life in San Francisco, seems to be recovering, greatly to the surprise of her physicians. She is to be held on a charge of murder.

When near the top of the shaft the whiffletree broke and the unfortunate man fell to the bottom of the shaft. His right leg was broken just above the ankle, his head badly cut and it is supposed he sustained serious internal injuries.

SAN MATEO - The Redwood City 'Gazette,' of Aug. 29th, has the following: Mr. George F.

>>SATURDAY, 5 SEPT 1868<<

SUICIDE - Between 5 and 6 o'clock last evening, a German named Henry H. HERTZER, committed suicide by taking poison. It appears that he lately had some domestic trouble, which he probably took so greatly to heart as to cause him to put an end to his life. He went to his own house on Lafayette street, between El Dorado and Hunter streets, and asked his wife to forgive him for the injures he had done her. She replied that she was perfectly willing to forgive him if he would only behave like a man. Shortly afterward he was found on the south side of Mormon slough, near Centre street bridge, a corpse. The body is at the office of the Coroner, where an inquest will be held today. That he poisoned himself is concluded from the fact that in his pocket was found a letter addressed to his wife stating that he had purchased and intended to take the fatal dose.

DISTRICT COURT - Orpha WILSON vs. Williams WILSON - order entered granting care of infant child to plaintiff.

ADMITTED to CITIZENSHIP - In the District Court, Sept. 3d, Abraham LEVY, a native of Prussia, was admitted to citizenship on testimony of J.C. SMITH and H.T. DORRANCE.
