23-The communication of "A Citizen," which
appears on the first side of our paper, has been
in the office upwards of two weeks. It was de
layed owing to sickness alluded to in our last.
HO! FROM CALIFORNIA!!
Oil Wednesday morning last, our citizens
were suddenly enlivened by the unexpected
arrival amongst them of Messrs. WTalterj
Crow, James McPike, Heath Jones,
Jones, tnd Carson Wright, emigrants from
this county last Spring to California. We
know not when we have seen a meeting so
universally agreeable to S3 large an assem
blage. Every eye and every countenance
were brightened and lighted tip with smiles.
Tim greetings were cordial and feeling. j
Then came the natural inquiries: How
did you like ? Wa it sickly ? How much
gold did you get? &c, &c, until all was
learned. The replies to these were receif-
ed with eagerness and profound attentionfhere is an inexplicable mystery. It is the opinion
kv the adventurers in exDectancv. Th
hopes of some seemed buoyed up, whilst
others were somewhat depressed by what
they learned. The news received by them
we sum up as follows : The amount of gold
in California, heretofore represented cor
rectly the amount of labor to get it, slight
ly the amount jof sickness underrated
The returned emigrants were willing to
give no definite advice as to a trip the com
ing Spring, Jeaving all to their own judg
ment. They were" most of them success
ful in making money, but not in getting i ich.
They tarried a few moments, and departed
for their various Iromes. where but we
will not intrude upon the meeting there.
Destructive Firk in Palmyra. The
Palmyra Whig coutains an account of a fire
in that town on the roornine of the 12th
inst. The large Livery Stable, occupied
by the Messrs. Bsadly & Leaves consum
ed, together with 21 horses and several bug
gies and carriages, belonging to various per
sons. The proprietors were the heaviest
sufferers, and illy prepared to bear the loss.
Many other buildings narrowly escaped the
destructive element There is no doubt
but the Sriug was the act of a negro man,
who lias fled, and for whom a reward of
$150 is offered bv the Sheriff of Marion

must inevitably be, we shall expect a still
greater addition to our list. Let our demo

Sectional and County pride, laudable as
it is when properly directed, should act as
an incentive to the encouragement of a
newspaper at this point Public spirit, aside
from personal entertainment and individual
profit, should prompt every man to take a
newspaper. ; It is the investment of a small
tie of capital, which invariably pays a
handsome profit - It is parsimony . of the
wont sort, that urges men to refuse to take
and pay for a newspaper. - It if also wrong
to condemn a paper, and. at tbe same time
book it from your neighbor for the plearure
of reading it Always send to the offioe
ad order it for yourself.- When this is the

If my former letter reached you
and you ha'd the patience to publish it, you and my

tie. I came here not to explore the country, but
to dig for Gold, and while able, I am constantly
engaged at it. An ounce a day is considered godd
wages, and as a general rule, if a man is not inn-'per
king that much, be goes out a prospecting. How
long this state of things will continue, I cannot
say, but I should judge not very long, for every
river, creek, vally, branch and ravine is crowded
and every vessel that lands bruits on a fresh sup- .many of them here and they generally re
ply. I think, however, that a man will be able to ef working at their trade to Other business,
make from 8 to 12 dollars per day, fur several) These are the prices in Sacramento City,
years to come. If a man is not making 8 dollar, 'in the mines things are much dearer, as you

the Gold region is very extensive being some 5

that all this has been done within the last Tew hun
dred years is proven from the fact that no gold is
found below formations of anv eeat length of
standing. Pml bars, on the fiver of compari
tively recent forming, are rich, and rcaeh iowa to
tbe solid granite; u hereas larger ones of longer
standing have the gold on them nearer the sui
face. and none below a certain depth. The size
of the gold is. from particles scarcely discernabl
p to pieces of several pounds Weiglrt. I have
never seen a piece of more than 6 ouuees myself
pieces of, from one to 5 dollars welgftt are quite
common, especially, far up in tbe hill, but far the
greater portion is about as larce as our flax seed,
geuerally flat and in all manner of shapes in other
respects. There is no other metal like it, or
that a man would mistakefof ii so that no tet
are needed by the miner . butthe naked eye.
There is every thing here the Emigrants' want
and that too in tbe greatest abundance. And I
would just here say to any of my friends who may
wish to cross the plains next spring not to art as did
tbe Emigrants of last year, but listen, to ex peri
ence and not overload. Three men should outfii
together, get a good well made 2 horse wagon, not
too heavy 3 yoke ef cattle, the best the country
affords, not too large nor too small, say such a

that two such lashed together will take vou over

outfit you can cross in 90 or 100 days you have
no idea what an ox can stand, if not ovei haded,
yon can travel fiom 25 to 30 miles every day.
Start from St. Jo by the 1st, day of May grass &r
no grass. Have each a good, big, strong, horse;!
and dont break bim down by running after deei
antelope and Buffalo, but keep him to ride through

something when you get here. -
For extras, bring a few nails and screw,, horse
shoes and nails; an axle for your wagon and a
bolt pin. Fnt up all your goods in socks, have no
lids or extra boxes to ytntr wagon. I repuat it,
come light. All the directiobs 1 can give in rela

As I have frequently mentioned Sacra
mento City, I will tell you something more
about it. The place it now occupies, was
a forest in May last, with only a rudely con
structed warehouse in it. It now contains
several thousand houses, elegant frame
boHdinz. besides innumerable hobses of
canvass, tin, &c. I was there in Septem
ber, the place then looked more like the
tented field that a nopuijtis city. I was
there again the 1st of this mouth; imagine
my astonishment, to see that the tented field
had been transformed as if by the slight of
hand into a City sure enough. Stately edi
fices of the best material and finest archi
tecture had gone Up from the very founda
tions, beautifully painted, and their inmates
transacting business as composedly as if
tliey had been there for years. Lots in the
city are worth from $1 COO to $20,000 ac
cording to their eligibility or proximity to
the water. It is situated on the east bank
of the Sacramento, just below the nranrirof
the American fork and near the head of
From the position it occupies, in relation!
to navigation and the gold region, it must
forever be the depot for two-thirds of the
whole gold region of California. I lie val
ley of the Sacramento is rich, and well
to stock raising; and the city's
growth is turning the attention of the peo
pie to the subject of farming and gardening
in its vicinity.
I am agreeably surprised at the morals,
or in other words, honesty of the country.
There is no religion in California, except
the little brought in by the emigrants; and i
not much of that fur many persons who
left the States with a pretty fair supply, un
fortunately left a part, or all of it, with that
portion of their outfit deemed useless, on'
the way. Whether they will find it on their
return, is at least, problematical. 1 he peo
ple, however, appear honest. A man may
leave his baggage by the roadside, under a
tree, for weeks together, and return and
find it unmolested. Thefts are very rare.
The riiihts of all appear to be respected.
A man has less use lor a lock here than he
has in the States. Women are scarce here

more about the laws existing here by the

We make the following extracts from let
ters ri-reivi-H in this city via New York,
hy H. II. Wort, Est., from his brother in
Sax Francisco. Der. 25th, 1849.
California is still a grrat country, and I
am doing my best tu be ttble to leave it one
year from this time. I have been fortunate
thus far, arid Can count upon having made
up to this time thirty five hundred dollars,
and in one tear more I hflve no fears of
reaching my limits, tvhich is $1 6,000. I
ave investe(j early ell my money in town
.Q j I think at low prices; If Califor-
have met with success not by any means.
There are thousands here suffering much.
I know hundreds of worthy young men now
t. !.; iUv u'itlmht emnlovment and aiiv.
work for their board. I consider
Q-;my,eif fortunate in obtaining the situation
I now hold.
Money is worth 10 per cent, per month.
I have but little faith in merchandizing, but
believe in land speculations, and shall con
fine mvself to that branch of trade: It is
not rnv intention id hold on and lose by the
fall of property that is certain to take place
in one year's time. A great smash must
take place. My motto is to sell whenever
I can make a handsome advance V
Decembei 31st, '49.
I would be happy to have brother Eman
uel with me still I would not advise him
t.j come out he is doing-well where he is.
But as regards yourself, don't think for a
moment of leaving your family and starting
for California. Things here have great ef
fect on a person one never can do busi
ness again at home if successful here; He
could never get down to calico St one or
two cents profit per yard, one hundred per
cent at wholesale is a fair profit here.
