Tlie Stockton Independent, of Monday, thus speaks of the second great storm a h exhibited in that locality: lo-cality: Ihc b.st storm xra? more severe than tho first, nearly 1 inches of rain having hav-ing fallen in twenty-two hours. During Dur-ing several hours the wind blew a gale, and for a short time it seemed as if Stockton wa- in the inner circle of the cyclone. Little or no damage was done, however, to property, so far as we have been able to ascertain. Considering Con-sidering the Kict that the previous storm, le-s severe, had caused an overflow over-flow of water lo some extent in the streets, a fre.-hct was expected as a matter ef nurse. Late cu Saturday afternoon the rumor prevailed that the flood was making its way from the eastward, and flnt it would reaeh the ctiy during ihe niht. At an early hour yesicrd.iy morning the water made its appearance in ihc eastern part of the city, and soon found its way through some of the streets to the levee. The stream on Weber avenue was a little larger -than during the previous storm. 'The currents in the sloughs in the northern part of the city were stronger, and the water in Stockton Stock-ton channel rose much higher, on account ac-count of the increased volume of the San Joaquin river. The water which finds its way into the city from tbe east principally comes from the Calaveras Cala-veras river and Mormon slough. There is, as yet, not any apparent grounds (or apprehension that we will suffer from back water. The plains were pretty well covered, and for a time appeared more like an inland sea than a good farming country, but before sunset last evening much of the water had disappeared.
