SAN PRAMCISCO A'D TI1K EAST.
Y,"c observe ;from out exchanges that eastern
merchants are selling govds along the line of
the Pacific 'II. R. to the very doore of tlte'San
Francisco merchant1?. We arc not surprised to
merchants in this Territory that more goods
can be bought in the New York market, for
currency, than for u 3uic nominally the same,
in gold, in San Francisco; and transportation
from New York here is but little more than
transportation from San Francisco. From
present indications the trade of this Territory
f must, in the future, be conducted mo&tly with
New York. The difference between the prices
paid in New York and the prices paid in Sf.n
- Francisco amounts to a very fairproSt for tho
Why such a marked difference shouli e::ist
between prices in New York and San Francisco
no one seems to precisely understand. Some
attribute it to the fact that at the latter p'ace
business is done entirely on a specie basis
Thij doubtless ha3 much to do wi'h it. Though
u few have made money by opposing and pre
venting the adoption of the nation:.l currency
as a basis of trade, the majority and the cnn
try generally have suffered. Eastern capital
has been kept out The monied sharpers of
San Francisco had it pretty much their own
way until ihu railroad mane San Francisco
and New York door neighbors.
The locomotive now sweeps along, bringing
a new set of men and a new system oftrade.
Instead of forming into line and conform ng to
the new order of things, so for, the merchants
of San Francisco have folded their arirs, a:d
resolved that the God of Nature desigtled that
tbey should have the trade of certain Idealities,
and, therefore, that they must have itj at the.
esinie time that the New York or Cuicaa mer
chant is stepping in and getting the trade. Un
less something be S cedily dene to prt vent it,
within a ye;T nearly the entire trade of this
Territory will be done in New York. It is
not from chjice that this change will be made,
but from interest. , ,Mosof our mfirohaiiisttre

sell them gocds at rates which will enable them
to compete with those who do purchase In

We mentioned last week that the ma'.l car
rier hud again been attacked by Indians, be
twecn the Point of the Mountain and the
Picacho. A volley of eight or ten shots were
fired with no other effect than the wounding of
one animal, seriously. The driver succeeded
in running his team out of the ambush and
caving himself and the mail. This is the third
attack that has been made upon the mail, at or
near the Picacho, within the past sis wtek.-.
Each time the driver has miraculously escaped,
but was once severely wounded. It seems im
peratively necessary that the military author
ities should, without delay, adopt some plan
to give piotection and security on this portion
of the road. The importance of the matter
will be appreciated when it is understood that
tho mail connecting the various parts of the
Territory and California has to pass this point
four times each week. All the goodo trans
ported to the Southern part of tho Territory
have to pass here, as also, all the produce and
merchandise passing to and from Sonora and J
the northern or middle portion of the Terri
tory. A few cavairy-men stationed at the Pi
caeho, or even at the Point of the Mountain,
would be of more real service to the people
thau at any ether place in the Territory. The
moral effect of their being there would do
much to prevcut -tho Indians from n-akitm-
those attacks, and, besides, they could escort
valuable trains, and small partied who now
have to run the gauntlet at the risk of life.
Twenty men would make this road compara
tively safe and there is t:o other point at which
twenty men could be of equal service. Escorts
are now frequently sent out and if a small post
were established it would bo of but iittle more
expense to the government, while it would offer
much greater security to life and property.
Wc believe the dne consideration of this mi.t
to be of paramount importance to the interests
of the country and the canse of humanity, and
therefore hope that the matter willbo atteaded
to at once. -

eral roticed in a becoming manr.or the many
unfriendly criticisms now froinpr the round.-, of
the press, in northern California, coneernii n
Gen. Fremont and the construction of the road
on the 32d paiallel. He insisted that the
abuse of Fremont was only made to kill off the
road. :!e explained that Fremont was on'y
the financial agent aud not the "head and
front' of the Company, and tuatitcan make
no difference to the people of San Dieo, who
builds the toad so that it is speedily built. The
General's defence of Fremont was very h;ippv
and well received by tho lurgo crowd of ps-opli-present.
lie asked that Fremont be generously
supported by all persons fri-nd'y to the 32d
parallel road. That since his arrival here he
had received a letter from the President of ti
u"iuf"".'. oiiiuiiij mill mi wasgoin" on n&Wfii
as could be hoped for. The G.-neral then pro-
ectied to state that all persons in San Dio
who had subscribed land to assist in the con-
staction of the road, could make out the con
ditional deeds for the same and depo-it them
with Judge Bush or Mr. Mannas?, with the
express understanding that tlipy vrcr noi to be
delivered to the rail road company unless t he
Company should commence to build the road
from the Bay of San Dirgo' by the firit dav o
