FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 14, 1849 Lrtter* from &amp;lt; ullfomlii. Our attention lias been frequently directed to the flood of correspondence deluging the press of tho I'nited States, purporting to havo gathered in its angry might on these Pacific slopes, and to have rolled down the Sierra Nevada fides, despite tho tide of emigration sotting in uponoor shores, swept with resistless fury to the eastern coast, and finally expended its angry strength in vain lashings through the sluice way of tho public ' press. Without a wish to stay the boiling torrent , we have suffered it to flow on passive observers of the terrific spectacle, hoping that with its exhausted force, its desolating effects would cease ; but as " continual dropping wears away a stone," •o does the eternal dirty driblet of falsehood, leaking through into that well whence should spring Truth, discolor and disturb the purer water — does one's patience become exhausted with these California letter-writers.

Pants. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 14 December 1849

Pants. Ladies are very fond of the assumption of a certain article of apparel which has, from the time Adam donned the first fig leaf, been appropriated to the sterner sex. Many a Mrs. Caudle in there in this world, and many a poor hen-pecked husband has had to bow the knee in submission to the domineering and assuming spirit of his better half. There is still, however, some virtue left in the sex : a friend of the lords of the creation has arisen in the person of Mrs. Swisheim. Would that her appellation was more euphonious; but we are perfectly willing to support Mrs. Swisheim in her opinions and to extend to her the right hand of fellowship, for as Mr. Sampson Brass was wont to say of his lovely sister, she is a capital fellow." The objections which the lady makes to female attire may be very well grounded, but upon that score we have no power to speak, never having "got over fences' in any other attire than hoots and what-dye-call-em's. The only expedient we can advise to avoid ...
