FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 21, 1849 Tk> ».«•••♦» lv Hmm. It is not enough that Franco should wither under the appellation of oppressors of Republican Rome, but the voice of nations should gpeak out in thunder tones her barbarian guilt and ignominy. It is but just thrU her acts should beheld up to an indignant world, and that the milliontongucd press of the truly independent and great should forever pronounce its scorn for that people who are thus early the abusersof the inestimable blessings of liberty enemies of European freedom ere they themselves are snatched from the jaws of tho monster Tyranny. The conduct of the French in Home, from the moment of its capture, has been sufficient to merit censure an eternal as the seven-hilled city which they have subjugated. How applicable to these Cloth* of 1849 are the following verses from Byron's Childe Harold! " Rome — Rome imperial, bows her to the storm, In the same dust and blackness, and we pass The skeleton of her Titanic fo...

Tlir Court «»r Spain. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 21 December 1849

Tlir Court «»r Spain. We find in a late number of Noah's SundayTimes an editorial upon the manners of the Court of Spain, and the particular code of morals of the present day. There is undoubtedly more licentiousness in that Court than in those of all the other foreign potentates put together. Yet Spain seems, at the present time, to remain comparatively tranquil under the reign of the youthful Queen, and be perfectly satisfied with the present regime. We copy a portion of the article : There in probably no monarchy in Europe which keeps up the stiff, antiquated etiquette of royalty equal to the Spanish Court. Everything is done by rule, by usanca, as it is called, and it unites the sober dignity of the Moors with the imperial pride which distinguished the reign of Charles V., and Ferdinand and Isabella. Poverty has not abated an inch in the steady ctiquctto oi that court, but it is now in great danger of being overturned, if not utterly destroyed, by that hoyden, the young Queen of...

Thither the new Emperor and the Empress repaired. Previous to their departure for the church, the guns of the different forts were got ready, and at about 10 A. M., commenced firing, continuing to fire till the close of the ceremony. In the church an attempt was made to get up a very imposing spectacle, with what success you may judge, when you are told that the Emperor and the whole imperial family are very black, and this race are not usually very successful in getting up magnificent spectacles. On arriving at the church, Solonque took his seat in a chair prepared for him, having a small crown suspended above it. The imperial crown, which had been carried before him to ...

The King of Ilrarfa. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 21 December 1849

The King of Ilrarfa. We find in one of our exchanges un extract from the letter of the New Orleans Correspondent of the Concord Intelligencer, describing a ball in Lafourche, "a long time ago.' 1 It must have been "away down in the 20'h," aH they would Bay in racing parlance, as such scenes are among tho " hat* beens," a« one of us can attest.

FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 21, 1849 lUllrond to the I'iwMc. Our exchanges from the States contain inter- j eating reports of several public gatherings in the I western cities, at which the project of a Rocky mountain rwilroftd to the Pacific, was spiritedly discussed. It is generally understood by our readers that considerable attention has been directed to this subject within the last few years, and it has come to be thought a most, feasible enterprise, not to mention the grgnntic advantages to the American people apparent on the face of the work So much is the public interested in the sehemo. tbiit pnrty combinations have grown out of its discussion, and while there are few who do not at once recognise it« practicability, tin-p-are many among whom but one sentiment eiists as to when the work shall lie undertaken, the conflict of opinion arising only as to tfsWfV it shall be commenced.

The Piulllc Cnmln Ritin. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 21 December 1849

The Piulllc Cnmln Ritin. This is tho appellation of a document which has been placed upon our table, printed upon a sheet of letter-paper over the signature of "James M. Crane, Fsquire, Editor and proprietor." It is in point of fact, a prospectus of a new Whig paper about to be, or as it asserts upon its face, nlready established in San Francisco. This circular is as it purports to be, an ordinary affair and we cannot refrain from alluding to it in justice to ourselves and the existing newspaper press of California, though without the slightest feelings of hostility or unfriendliness to its editor. We have heard it announced that a new newspaper was to bo established in thin city, and had hailed the announcement with pleasure, for envy has no share in our composition, and we only rejoiced that the prosperity of the country was so great as to induce others to embark in a kindred enterprise. Already established and in prosperous circumstances, we had received sufficient encouragement ...

Irl.h IMiinll.m. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 21 December 1849

Irl.h IMiinll.m. Wo fear that for Ireland the day of deliverance from British oppression is too distant to be dreamed of by the people of the present age. Her chains arc too heavily forged, and the forlorn hope appears to have fled the emerald isle forever. We know not why the struggle for independence by the nations of Europe hat* not kindled a kindred fire in the breasts of the Irish people, but it has failed to animate them to strike a blow for liberty, and their cause it would appear was irrevocably lost, with the capture of their brave leaders who vainly endeavored to awake in them a sympathetic and patriotic effort to free Ireland from bondage. Still them is breathed a deep and bitter hatred of British rule in many of the Irish papers. Take the following from the Irishman, for example : The Irishman, in an article headed] "Tho Queen's Visit." after stating that the corporation have been bribed to give Victoria a triumphant reception among the dissaffecteil " Mirish," he ♦•onrl...

swsa On*4ala«*r«. We yesterday received from Guudalaxara, Mexican files of "La Vox dt Alianzd" 1 down to the ♦itii of November. They contain but little matters likely to interest our readers. The Ciovernor of Jalisco had prohibited all balls, aHsemblages and fadangoes in San Pedro at the house of D. Manuel Mora, a.id a lengthy official correspondence is given in La Vox. The motives were political. Henri ilerz the celebrated pianist had contemplated a visit to Guadalaxanb but had abandoned it on account of the prohibition of the Governor. La Voz learns from Queretero that the celebrated artist Madam Anna Bishop and Mr. Bochsm are on their way to that city, via. the former city. They express their satisfaction in advance of having an opportunity of admiring those celebrated artista who have gained no much applause in the principal cities of Europe and America. We entertain some slight hopes that the lady and her harper may decide to jog over to Acapufco and take the steamer for this p...

LOCAL MATTERS [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 21 December 1849

LOCAL MATTERS California at it is--and as it may be; or, a Guide to the Gold Region, By F.P. Wierzbicki, M.D. Thus reads the tile page of a new book just issued in this city, which will prove, we think, an acceptable volume to the gold seeker on these shores, as well as a source of profit and some little celebrity to the author. The book is before us, very cleanly printed, fresh from the press of W. Bartless, in Clay st., and is all it professes to be, with a good deal of able authorship thrown in. It is an octavo volume of sixty pages, andreviews the present condition of the country, its inhabitants, and future prospects of California, In a clear, concise and truthful manner. The author has for nearly three years resided in this "land o' cakes," and is consequently well capacitated to carry out the fruitful topip on which he engaged several months since; added to this, Dr. W. is a scholar who has acquired not only a professional name, but is a clever writer, a scientific gentleman,...
