This day five years .ago, ('alifornia w as ad mitted into the great American I nioii, and passed trout the condition ot a comptered province to the exalted station of a sovereign State. By the Pioneers who had lived here under the Mexican Hag—who saw, step hy step, the infusion of the \me; ic't!l element— who heheld the stars ami siripes unfurled and the country wrested fnmi its etterx ate possess ors, and who rejoiced when peace once more made them Americans on American soil—by those early corners, who were of the eon* ipicrors, ami those who a little later partici pated in the formation of the State govern ment and in the stirring scenes that followed the discovery of gold, this anniversary is held in joyful rememhrance. They, above all others, can appreciate the politic,al and social blessings conferred by the act this an niversary is intended to commemorate; and it i~ peculiarly their province to evince their appreciation hy a public demonstration. Hut nine years have elapsed since our flag was unfurled upon (he shores of < 'alifornia, and what a change has heen effected. From a yvildefiiess inhabited hy a few -duple natives, she has become a proud State of three hun dred and fifty thousand freemen. From a sleepy hamlet has sprung up a splendid city —from a deserted harbor, visited at long in tervals by some petty trader, hns risen a great commercial emporium.crowded hy the navies «.f the world ; thriving towns have l started up as if by magic; our inland yvatefs, that here no greater burden than the Indian’s canoe, syv.arm with noble steamers and busy craft: the yvilderness lias been penetrated even to the uttermost point, .and strong hands and hold hearts have made it to blossom as the, rose; yvhere the Indians and the wild beasts roamed, smiling farms and cosy farm houses meet the eye; gold in quantities that would have dazzled the Incas, has been raised from the riverbeds; roads have I opened, and stage-coaches traverse .a net-work of routes from Shasta Unite to Mount San Ber nardino; telegraphs have heen established— a licet of ocean steamers enliven our ports ; even railroads have heen commenced, splen did edifices erected, manufactories started, tunnels cut, canals dug. mines of coal and quicksilver, oii.arric- of granite and limestone, of marble and sandstone opened ; gas and yvater yvorks have been built, grist and saw mills yvithoiit number erected. —and. from a needy community that impendvd upon foreign ers for all our supplies, we ha've come to be a wealthy and prosperous people, that can spare from our abundance to minister to the necessities of others. All this mighty yvork has been done in seven years, and all this the I’ioneers of California have seen. So accus tomed have we become to these rapid advan ces, that it is only by a retrospect yve can fully realize them. \\ ho shall put limits to our progress within the next seven years? Let us this day, while eommeminorating the event that gave ns full standing in the l!e --puhlic, remember w hat yve were, ohsery e w hat yve are, and aeijitire reneyved courage to strive for the fulfilment of our destiny. Tim I’.ycmo lt.yii.uo ad. —Mr. O'Sullivan, chief engineer of the railroad, has just re turned, say si he St. Louis Republican, from an examination of the yvork on the route to anil beyond Jefferson City. He reports that there is every prospect, amounting almost to cer tainty, that the road will be opened to Jcfer son City during Octsber, probably by the first of the month. The rails will lie laid to Hermann (80 miles from St. Louis) «>n Tues day next, July 21st, and the road will be opened that far for use on Monday, the Oih of August. From China.
