This period was the era of newspapers in California, for in 1851 and 1852 there were at least eight or ten daily journals alive, and amongst them one in opposition to The Public Balance. This, called The True Balance, had for its editor and proprietor a learned lawyer, now practicing at the Bar in this city.
