California. The N. O. Picayune has
a letter dated U. S. ship Ohio, San Bias,
Jan. 17, 1849, in which is the following:
The accounts received from the gold re
gion in California are not so flattering. The
cold weather had driven in the diggers, and,
in consequence, gold had become scarce,
and the price risen to sixteen dollars. Sev
eral large cargoes of provisions had arrived
from Peru, Chili, China, and from this
coast more than twenty vessels had left
during the last month for San Francisco.
Every article in the way of provisions will
be supplied at a much cheaper tate than
they can be sent from the United States.
Severe loss must be sustained by many who
have ventured largely, expecting to reap
California. We have now before us a
list of 162 vessels that have sailed for Cali
fornia from the Atlantic cities since the first
of December last up to the first March inst.
The number which has gone since then
will swell the list to neatly two hundred.
These vessels have taken out not much, if
any, less than twelve ihousaud passengers,
all of whom, with veij few exceptions,
have gone to that country for the exprrss
and only purpose of gold digging. We

is the day upon which our first city officers
are la be elected. A Mayor and six Alder
men are then to be elected by the qualified
voters of the city. In connexion with the
office of the 1st Mayor, I have heard, up.
on the streets, the names of three or four
gentlemen, any of whom would fill the office
with credit. Without intending to dispar
age the claims of any of those gentlemen,
I beg leave, by the use of the columns of
the Banner, to introduce to the considera
two of the voters of the city the name of
nvMAN E. Block as a gentleman well quali
fied for the duties of the office; and from
his known integrity, impartiality, and hierh
aense of honor, entitled to the confidence of
uie people. If elected, I believe he would
give the greatest satisfaction to the greatest
number; that he would be, as Gea.Taylor
would say, the Mayor of the whole City.
If Mr. Block will make known, through
the next Banner, his willingness for his
friends to use hit name in this capacity,
ne will receive the cheerful support of
Toteis from Evert Ward.
