MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 24, 1849 [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 24 December 1849

MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 24, 1849 y\ vn . — Oh, that we could apostrophhiie mud. An Irishman swears "by the powers of mud !" and that it is a most powerful compound none will dispute. It were as lawless to attempt to analyse it as to write a poem to Ann Eliia, and we should not certainly attempt the latter for fear of ann-hilation. Its composition is heterogenoua, its character anti-polucid, its adhesive qualities immense and aiitagonistical to a composed state of the nerves. Jts ingredients are dust and water, egg shells. cahl»»ge leave*, jtotatoc paring*, onion tops, fish, lames, and other articles too numerous to mention. Its odor is as offensive to tht nostrils a* the nostrums in an apothecary fthop, a deceased rat. or a damp tomb. Mud is the element in which we are now compelled to exist. -— Alas, we can findvno consolation In thinking that I; dust thou art and unto dust thou shah return.'"

It iso season when enemies should bo forgiven", the frown exchanged for the smile, the hand which has been closed opened and the grasp of friendship exchanged, for it is the season when the heart yields to nature's kindly influences and ticlfishncss is crowded out. It is a time when the Christian precept of' 1 do unto others as ye would others should do unto you stands a better chance of being home in mind and carried out than at any other season of the year.

DOINGS OF THE LEGISLATURE [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 24 December 1849

DOINGS OF THE LEGISLATURE In the absence of our own correspondence from San Jose, owing to the non-arrival of the mail, we are enabled to furnish our readers with a synopsis of the proceedings of the State Legislature, through the kindness P.

Our Senators and Representatives. Much anxiety is manifest among men of various party denominations in this country concerning the admission of California as a State, and to know whether two representatives will be admitted to seats in the House. That the refusal of Congress to recognize the election of but one would seriously affect the interests of California, is too apparent to every one, and while it is confidently expectod that our right to the full representation of the members elect will be conceded, there is just ground for apprehension of defeat on account of the vote of the State at their election, which, unfortunately, constituted but a plurality. We cannot well determine how this or any other untoward event can throw out our claim to a second representative; and as this is not the first instance in the history of our Republic where a State has presented itself for admission, making manifest necessity for the joint representation of two members in the lower house at Washi...

*■••» J<M*. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 24 December 1849

San Jose. We learn from several gentlemen who arrived yesterday from San Jose that our means of communication with San Jose our Capital, are like to be interrupted for some time to come or at least to be very irregular. The roads between the two places are in a very bad condition, rendered worse by every rain and it is with difficulty that communication is had between Sun Jose and the embarkadero owing to the high stage of the river. The new town of Alviso is completely under water and all the adjacent lands. The Sacramento arrived on Thursday night at the embarkadero but unfortunately got badly aground and all attempts to got her off had failed up to Friday morning. One of her passengers succeeded in getting off on the night of her arrival in a small boat and went up to town. Most of her passengers got off in boats on the succeeding morning but there was no chance of her landing her freight at present except in small boats, Judge Geary, Mr. Tiffany and some other gentlemen succeede...

PLACER INTELLIGENCE [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 24 December 1849

PLACER INTELLIGENCE Letter from Feather River.. A young gentleman of the "never-say-die" disposition has written us, privately, a long letter, from which we make the following extracts. He has been employed on the South Fork of Feather River for the past summer, and with his companions, has amassed sufficient to satisfy the cravings for gold during this year. South Fork, Feather River, Dec. 3, 1849. * * * * * As provisions are alarmingly thining off and our stock in nearly exhausted, I SHALL probably pack up and in company with J----- move down to the settlements next week. * * * I would not advise any one to come on Feather River at this time of year, for independent of the scarcity of provisions, the weather is intensely cold, and the winter prospects for miners none the more encouraging on account of frequent falls of snow. I have seen three and four dollars per pound paid for flour, and yesterday a lot damaged by the recent rains, was sold for one dollar per pound. M---- returne...

[For the Alta California.] New School Hooka. We have just arisen from the examination of two little books, which for sterling merit and intrinsic value are unsurpassed by any similar productions that hare ever come under our observation. They are intended as Primary School Books, compiled by the talented Miss Oram of Now York, and we are happy to say, have been introduced into all the public schools of that State by order of the Trustees. The first of these publications is entitled a Pictorial DeriNKU, and contains one thousand primitive words, each one illustrated by an engraving, and accomp xri:ed with a descriptive text, thus form* ing an illustrated dictionary of substantives, whi * ncr ires at the same time as a drawing, spelling and reading book.
