Daily Alta California, December 30, 1850
A most disgraceful affair occurred on the arrival of the Northerner last evening. Capt. Moore, ol the U. S. schooner Ewing, hailed his boat along side the steamer, and in undertaking to obey the order, his boatmen attempt to pass through tlio fleet of boats which surrounded the steamer. Without any apparent cause, Capt Moore's men were assaulted by the other boatmen, and in a most beligerent manner, boathooks and and oars were freely used. When Capt. Moore endeavored to get to his boat to quell the disturbance, a pistol was presented, with a threat to blow out his brains if he advanced.
