From the (ZN. Y.) Tribune,
GOING TO CALIFORNIA.
The journals teem with sage and
fathei ly advice to people wo think of
goipg to California, and we are blessed
With a superflaify of private letters, so
' liciting Advice and information on Various
| prints connected with tIfe new Gold
etegion. To ans*wer these in detail isl
99 most iccorvenient, and we prefer to
pUthi*lat we know and think into The
rTribun'e, where all who choose can have
fair anld full opportunity to. profit by it,
I presu-niing tila! those- who deem our
ripinon worth aking for are readers of
-1ose coluinas. We propose theijfoie,
to answr to the best of our ability four
-br nyrs lAQ,-lng qiJeStionsl, ViZ:
1. Mow abou t that gold in California ?
That a considmable area in Norhei n
') CiAlifuinis is exloiely rich near the
surface -i vii-in Guid, no seisible man
n"ow pretends to doubt. Tbere is no
ri loneer a shadow of excnse for affecting
to belin-ve the accounts fibulous, nor the
rPoduct IMica, nor any ihing of the sort.
s.Tha iron oneto ive thushnd persons
IWere enagaed in digging and washing
for Gold in the iiesw 'placer' from June
to -Sepiemnber last inchisive, and that the
average prodact of !hei: labo'rs was at
B least one ounce of 2-carat Gold, worth
fully $20, for each day's fai,ful.Jabor,
are very certain; and the 1product -er
s Man was rather increasing than dimian
ishing at the latest dates, iartly by- the
discovery of richer deposijbut ,t"reJ
sensibly by thu invention, purgiihase"i'
niainufacture of more suitabrk.I
tneius, &e. rendering the labor ern e
far mors eelbctive than at Grst.- .i
2. Will tie G'old c6intinu-abundint ?
WF; think it will not to the. extent
Shitherto - realizd, but- thut it wii,io:a
-;onsid6rable..ertent. That Gold is fo'Q4

dist*r.st. The accId 4r:ff4'it, but
is-a ke. r - .i i rethe
tains remain as producive as'ever, after
several fears efficient voi king, and t ese
are in a region by no means so new to
civilization as the in:eiior if Californ ia.
Usually, ho%vever, the first fraits of a
newly discovered or newly worked Gold
Region are the richest, and the sanguine
explwctations formed at thfl outset ,;re not
justified by the experience of folloving
years. The unparal!eled rush of ad
venturers to Calilortia %w:1l alo operate
against the realization of extraordinary
profits individually, by spnedly crowd
ing, and in time exhausting the richest
localities, when intrior must be resorted
to; while the cost of all the necossaries
of lfe must rvimain viy hi;h, not only
by reason of the great demand for them
and the disthnce whence a good pat t of
then mosi be brought, but because of
the great difficulty of re'tining the sea,
omen iad thus bringing away ihe vessels
t in which supplies at e transpot led thither.

leys and ravines yet remain to be dis
covered; but though they will donbtiess
long defer the exhaustion of the Califor

-expected im ieaese nor even wOstain its
fprodJuctiveness. We know no actual
miesofany sort which will retnrn
twenty dollars per day for thte latbot
reqmired to work them.
Bum there will be an immense amount
of' Gold obtained in Califo'rnia during
d the next year, and probably through
many years to comc. The question
next in order would seem to be
3. hwt obstacles and drawbacks arc

hend that those whoi butt half wvork, or
fear to wvet thcir feet, or try to acquire

rule, be found as poor in California when
the golden flood shall h.ave ebbed, as

6. 34 ciA brst route to Vali
This is . asily answered. If you
have means, nd can secure hete a Pas
sagp ifi tie steamship from Panama to
San Francis-o, don't think of any other
way. But the steamship cannot carry
one-tenth of those who are going, and to
run down to Panama and be obliged to
wait there for mbnths, is hardly advisa
ble. The two land routes through our
our own territory-one by Missouri and
the South Pass of the Rocky Alountains,
and the other by Santa Fe and the rivet
Gila-are long, tedious, not without
perils and exposed to privations; yet
those who start ealy, well mounted and
provided, will go through this way; and
for persons who starts from points West
of tie Alleghenies, these are probably
as goed routes as any. You can choose
between them on the testimony of thioi
familiar with thea after you have passed
St. Louis, and there will be n6 lack ol
For our own part, ifrwe we.restar tint
now or before Matrch, and were not sure
of a berth in the steamship fromi Paniamri
to San Francisco, we should probably
take ship to Vera Crtiz. and thence
travel over land by the City of Mexict
to Maiz.uilan or some point on the Pa.
cinec c:,ast whence passage could br
procured; and.if such weie not to be
found, woold1 keep on by land by Cali
fornia. With two or. three huindred
Mexican dollars (gold will pass at a pinch
as yet,) we believe t.he trip to San Fran
cisco could, be made over this route in
sixty or seventy days, and not unpleas
antly. Not less.than twenty nor nt
than eighty should iavel together-les:
than twen'y wvould not lbe safe ; mom
than eighty would often find the 'enter
tainment for man and beast' somewha
meager. They must go prepared t<
purchase hardy horses or mules either a
Vera Crus or farther weust, as speed oi
one hand or economy on the other shah
dictate..-One m nore question is ofter
7. What will Congress dio about tir
We can only give.our owvn opinion 01
this head. We belIeve it wtll authorizt
the Exscutive neither to sell nor least
them at the .prersent Sessinn, but leave
every one free to dig wvhere he pleases
so that lie dres not trench upon the right:
of another, perhaps imposing a mode
rate tax-on the entire proceeds-say ter
per cent,--to bo paid at the Minth
California. In other words, Congres:
may require every one, on penal y C
confiscation, to bring his gold dug o:
public lands to the Mint and receive Co:
it, keh in,lind.: ninn.tnths the quan
i lity of coined gold.- We think.it will
either do this or do nothing.

General Taylor should -ve,o the Proviso.
his life would not be worth a six weeks'

Whiga in the Union who would feel. irndi

their characters, which could be removed
in one wayl only. They would nrot hesitat e

T'hat such villainous sentiments should
be entertained, and openly avowed, in the
columns of a public journal in the United
Stetes, is an alarming indication- or the
extent to which the Free Soil Fanaticism
has seized upon the public mind at the

50 per hundred potunds neat--showinig
conclue,ively that pork can be raise.d at as
lo~w tprice in this State as any where else.
We can say wirth truulh. Mu'. Vernuer's hogs
