From San Jo«c. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 9 January 1850

From San Jo«c. San Jose, Jan. 6th, 1850. Mibsih. Editors, — The Legislature have now commenced work in earnest, as will be won by the report of the proceedings for the last three days. Several bills of importance have been before that body, and quite animated discusaions have taken plaoe— particularly at the the time when the bull and prize fight resolution was before the Honse of Assembly. The cause of the introduction of that resolution, was the fact of some bull fights have taken place on Sunday, and also a pri«e fight, which came off a few days «nee for fivo hundred dollars a side, in which eyes were gouged out. &c. Notwithstanding the resolution, another bull and bear fight took place this afternoon, and was largely attended by the members of the honorable body. New Year's day waa unusually dull here. A ball was given »n the evening by the members of the Legislature, at the State House, and was much larger than the previous one, — en much bo, that both the Senate Ch...

Opposition LJue of KUamcn. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 9 January 1850

Opposition Line of Steamers. A meeting was to be hold last evening (Jan. 8) upon a call of several of our most respectable citizens, for the purpose of organizing a new line of steamers to run between Panama and San Francisco, but we understand that owing to the excitement of the election and bad state of the weather, it did not come off. We rejoice most heartily that a movement is on foot to start an opposition line, for it is certainly very much needed. It will bo some time before steamers can be procured, of course; but it is necessary that steps should be immediately taken for the furtherance of this important project. We learn that Capt. James Baker, late commander of the "Isthmus," is anxious to embark in the enterprize, and from his long experience, he is fully qualified to be the pioneer of the new line. We should be much pleased to see him afloat on the Pacific in a crack craft.

The K.I«li«H nf .Inniinrj . Yesterday was th« anniversary of ono of tlio bloodiest and most gallant actions fought during the last war with Great Britain— tho battle of New Orleans. Th« serried ranks of tho flower jof the British army, was upon the plains of dialmotto, in all th« pride and magnificence of a well equipped, highly disciplined force, with drums beating and colors flying, suro of victory, I and looking with longing and lustful eyes towards the city they would sack— its wealth and its virtuous dames. Their war cry was, ■ beauty and booty;* aud with those foul sentiments in their hearts, they girded on the sword of battle. But their hopes were destined to be blighted. From the fireside sprang the stout and sturdy hearted, determined to drive the ruthless invaders from the land, and die, if necessary, in protecting tho gentler sex from the brutal caresses of a maddened soldiery. Up started the men of the south, and of the West, and cheered by the smiles and tears of woman,...

I'll. Battle* or California. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 9 January 1850

I'll. Battle* or California. Tho Bth and 9th of January 1847 witnessed the conflicts between tho California forces under General Flores and thu Americans under the late lamented General Kearny. It was then that tho blood of America showed itnolf, to the terror of the foe. A long, tedious and distressing march had reduced General Koarny's command to such an extent that they wore much fitter to be invalided than to fight — they were ragged, half starved and weakened by a march of protracted suffering, and yet when the stars and stripes were unfurled, and the glistening lances of the enemy danced in their vision, they fought with that vigor and fixed determination of purpose which was tho characteristics of their sires. Far, far away from the "land of the free and the homo of the brave," they determined to maintain invincible that dag which has so long waved, "sans pe*ir et sam reproche." Their viotory was complete, though dearly bought, for many a gallant son sacrificed his life's blo...

Almost every man appoarcd to have an independent ticket of his own, And was electioneering to the greatest extent. During the day wagons, with bands of music in them, were passing to and fro, gaily decorated with flags, and bc-postod with proclamations. The vote polled was very largo indeed, and will perhaps bo quite equal to that cast at the State election. We had hoped to present our renders this morning with the result of tho election in figures, but wo were informed that it would be so lato boforo the counting was coitiploted, owing to tho great variety of tickets, as to render it a matter of impossibility.

Accidently, of course, they were broken open, and the contents jf most of them was of such a character, that we deem it most advisable to give them publicity in our columns, from time to time, as we may have room. Below, we give a somewhat poetical letter, written in a rather dashy sort of a style, from Mrs. Maria Jenkins, to a lady friend in New York. It would afford ua much pleasure to know Mrs. J., and even Jenkins himself. From the character of her letter, she must be "a jewel of a woman," and M some pumpkins'" at doggerel. There is both rhyme and reason in her epistle. Mrs. Jenkins is the right sort of woman for a new country, and we trust to have a whole battalion of young Jenkins's in our ...
