NE W ORLEA NS:
THURSDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 22, 1849
This day is the anniversary of the birth of Wash
ington ; a day hallowed in the hearts of all Ameri
cans, as the birth, if not of the nation, at least of
him whom we delight to call the " Father of his
Country." What day can be more sacred in the
annals of the nation, what more worthy of having
homage rendered to it by a grateful people ? And
it is so remembered. During the revolution of a
half a century with its glories in war, and its tri
umphs in peace, the American nation has always
marked the birth-day of Washsngton as an era of
universal national rejoicing. As the flight of time
separates our existence from his, the veneration with
which we regard his memory, so far from dimin
ishing, becomes more intense with each succeed
ing year, and if in times gone by there were some
who did not join in the universal admiration, now
the entire world yields to Washington the first
place in history, as a man ( ombining the highest
talents of the statesman with the brightest virtues
of the citizen. But it is not alone for his own great
ness and the transcendent glory of his character
that Washington is revered ; but the mere mention
of his name recalls to every mind the great events
in which he was the most conspicuous actor, and
with which he has become so intimately connected
as to be considered the very typification of the
American revolution. As that mighty event was
the dawn of a new era of human progress, the fame
of its hero has not merely a sectional or even a
national, but a world wide extension, and if we
claim him as peculiarly our own that claim is not
acknowledged by other nations, who demand that
he shall be considered as equally belonging to
them. As if it were a kind of support to the claim
of the universal world to the fame of Washington
that revolution which gave freedom to another
nation, and which may be considered as the just
result of our emancipation from monarchical rule,
had its commencement on the anniversary of the
very day which we now celebrate.
In rejoicing, with the most heartfelt joy, over our
own progress in liberty, in power, arid in all the
essentials of a mighty nation, we should not forget
that another people, separated from us by a wide
ocean, have also cause to celebrate this day, which
draws them the closer to us, as their institutions
more resemble ours, of which they were bom.
Since the time when Washington yielded up his
spirit, the people of which he was the first chief,
and which looked upon him as its founder, has in
creased, from a comparatively small and powerless
community, to one of the grandest and most mag
nificent in the world. Its industry has been devel
oped, its territory vastly extended, and its popula
tion increased by nearly tenfold, while amid the
almost universal convulsions of the civilized world,
it alone has remained firm and unscathed, advan
cing in all the elements of greatness. It is fitting,
therefore, Americans should honor and revere the
name of Washington, for as long as they continue
to do so, they will never lose their love for those
republican institutions which were the fruit of his
The Oase of the Clerk of the First District Court.
Yesterday morning, Judge McHenry opened his
Court, and began the proceedings of the day by
reading a very long opinion in justification of his
course, and in condemnation of the proceedings on
the habeas corpus before the Second District Court.
He concluded his opinion by recommitting Mr.
Rousseau for the remainder of the ten days unex
pired of his former commitment, and expressed his
determination, if the latter was again set at liberty,
to proceed under the 80th article of the Constitu
tion, which provides for the removal of the Clerk.
Judge McHenry then refused to listen to one or two
applications for appeals in other cases, and ordered
the Court to be adjourned. The Judge carried his
opinion and the decree off with him, so that we
cannot speak of its contents, except from memory,
and are not willing to depend upon that in so im
portant a matter. Should it ever become a part of
the records of the Court, or see the light in any
other manner, we shall examine it and its doctrines.
Immediately upon being imprisoned, Mr. Rous
seau made another application for a habeas corpus,
which, to-day being a holiday, was made returna
ble by the Second District Court, at half-past nine
last evening. When the case came on for trial,
Messrs. Grymes, Preaux, and Foulhouze appeared
for the applicant. After reading the petition, the
commitment, and making the necessary examina
tion of the minutes of the First District Court, the
counsel for Rousseau made brief but pointed argu
ments upon the subject, and the Court rendered the
following judgement :
" About three rears ago the Judges of the Supreme Court of
our State condemned to impriionmest for contempt of
Court, a distinguished member of oar bar: the latter think
ing the prooeedings incorrect, Applied to the then Criminal
Court for the First District, for a writ of habeas corpus
The Jndge, upon examination of the case, ordered the dis!
charge of tbe prisoner. The Judges of the Snpreme Court,
the higheat judicial officers of the State, gave a remarkable
proof of their respect for the laws which 1 hey were bound to
administer. They considered the matter as completely set
tled. They knew the law—they respected the law.
"This caw offers a strong contrast : The prisoner. Alfred
Rousseau, after a full examination of the evidence and the
law. has been discharged by a court of competent jurisdic
tion. No evidence is shown on the minutes of the First Dis
trict Court of any new proof adduced against him, of any
new judgment or order rendered, and this commitment is
only the revival of the former one. which had been adjudged
to have been rendered in a snit la which the Judge had no
right to sit, being related to one of the parties, in the fourth

The Washington papers, of the 13th, publish the
following very interesting official letter from Cali
fornia, being about six weeks later than former ad
vices. The Union says: " We understand that a
letter is received from an officer in Commodore
Jones' squadron, of the 7th January. The Ohio was
then at Mazatlan. Reports had been received of
the arrival at San Diego of the dragoons and a com
pany of artillery, under Col. Washington, who had
gone across from Camargo, and passed through
Monterey, Saltillo, Parras, etc."
Sam Francisco, California . Dec. 25, 1848.
My Dear Sir Commodore Jones has but this
moment informed me that the Ohio will sail to-day
for Mazatlan, and I ta! e the opportunity for for
warding a few public letters. I also enclose two or
three private letters, this being the only means of
getting them to the States. Will you please to have
them sent to the post-office at Washington ?
Since I last wrote to you, the affairs of this coun
try have been constantly getting worse. We have
no government here, either civil or military, and
the country is full of lawless men, who are commit
ting the most shocking outrages. Murders and
robberies are of daily, and, I might almost say, of
hourly occurrence. Not an arrival occurs from the
north, south, or the interior, but notifies the commu
nity of new acts of villainy, which go unpunished.
Within six weeks,more than twenty murders have
occurred in a white population of less than 15,000
souls. The people are now acting in self-defence,
and four or five days since, three men were hung by
Lynch law, sixty miles from this place. It is of the
last importance that the distressing condition of
California should be impressed upon those at Wash
ington who have the power to apply a remedy. The
people are now preparing to organize a provisional
government, * * * * |, ut should
Congress give us a territorial organization at the pre
sent session, it will supercede the popular local or
ganization now taking place, but which cannot go
into effect before the ensuing summer. The United
States revenue laws are now in force here, and will
yield an income of say $450,000 the ensuing year,
and perhaps more, and four-fifths of this amount will
be collected at this port. Much dissatisfaction ex
ists at the payment of such a tax on the part of the
inhabitants, without either a government or a repre
sentation. This feeling is gaining ground from day
to day. * * * * *
I wrote you a very long semi-official letter some
time since, (September 18,) going at length into the
history of the gold mines. I trust that you have re
ceived that communication, as it accompanied other
official papers, all of which, I ani informed, were
correctly sent from Mazatlan to Vera Cruz about six
weeks since. I have only time now to inform you
that everything stated in that letter has been more
than realized up to this date. The gold mines con
tinue to be as rich as before, although the rainy sea
son has caused many to suspend their work. There
can be no doubt but that at least $4,000,000 of gold,
at $16 per ounce troy, has been taken from the
mines. The most accurate estimates I am able to
make, show that $1,500.000 have been sent from
the country, and $1,000,000 of it has goue from this
port. One vessel took $400,000. Two-thirds of all
that has been exported has gone to foreign coun
tries, and, consequently, to foreign mints.
I am, dear sir, in great haste, yours truly,
J. L. Folsom.

in Prices—Quicksilver as abundant as Gold
Hard times for Greenhorns, etc., etc.
Several of the New York papers give copious
items of California news, brought by Mr. Robert
Atherton, who arrived in that city on Monday morn
ing, the 12th inst., having left San Francisco on the
10th of December, and made the journey, via Ma
zatlan and the city of Mexico. We copy the fol
lowing from the New York Tribune:
Mr. Atherton lias resided for ten years on the Pa
cific, and two at San Francisco. He left San Fran
cisco on the 10th of December, and came to the
United Slates by way of Mazatlan, Guadalajara,
Mexico, and Vera Cruz. The passage from San
Francisco to Mazatlan occupied ten days, the vessel
touching only at one port. From Mazatlan to
Mexico the journey w as made on horseback, in two
days. Mr. Atherton has accomplished! the whole
of this lor, g and arduous trip with remarkable dis
patch, having been only sixty-one days upon the
route ; the cost of the whole, from San Francisco
to New York, has been about $700.
The gold region is now understood to embrace a
territory a thousand miles in length and three hun
dred in width. The gold is distributed over this
vast extent, though by no means equally, some
parts being of surpassing richness, while others are
comparatively barren of the precious metal. No
limit can be fixed to the number of men who may
find employment in extracting it, or to the length of
time for which gold-digging may be profitable.
There is room enough for all who may desire to
make their fortune by this new sort of attractive
industry, and a sufficient quantity of the glittering
dust in the earth to keep them busy indefinitely.
But, as we learn from Mr. Atherton, the business
of mining has nothing that is agreeable except the
gold that it sometimes, not always, produces. In
short, it requires the hardest kind of labor, such as
only strong constitutions and muscles indurated by
toil can undertake with a prospect of success.
Young men delicately brought up, and more
familiar with the drawing room, counting-room, or
lawyer's office, than with the plough or sledge
hammer, had better keep their imaginations free from
all visions of placers, rivers floating with gold dust,
and big lumps of the real stuff to be had for the
picking up. Gold is not to be procured in that way
even in California, but yields itself only to strength
and skill. Even these are not always successful.
Mr. Aüierlon knew one company which went out
from San Francisco w ith all the proper tools, ma
chines and accessaries, and whose members, after
digging some time, with better zeal than fortune,
came back each with a flea in his ear, and not a jot
of gold in his pocket.
However, a man of the right sort, in respect of
health, strength, and skill, may, with fair luck and
hard and steady work, obtain three ounces of gold
on an average per day. It is not often found in
lumps. Still Mr. Atherton has seen one mass
weighing seven pounds, and a friend of his had
seen another weighing 21 pounds. The number of
persons w ho had been to the mi|jes when he left, is
estimated at 10,000, but there had not been more
than 2500 digging at any one time. One man of his
acquaintance, a blacksmith, had got $10,(KM) worth
in three weeks. A good many Indians had been
employed as laborers by the miners, but they are
poor assistants. They do not work steadily, and
never can be kept at it above a month at a time,
when they leave for San Francisco to spend their
earnings in dissipation.
Mr. Atherton brings with him the bills of lading
of gold to the value of $200,000, shipped on English
account, on which he proposes to effect an insurance
here. Mr. Atherton states that the Lexington has
on board $500,000 worth of the genuine metal.
She was about to sail when Mr. Atherton left for
the United States.
There was nothing doing at the mines when Mr.
Atherton left, ovinjr to the rains, it being the rainy
season; there was not much sickness in the dig
gings, no robberies and no disturbances.
The cost of living at San Francisco has been the
subject of statements quite as exaggerated as some
of those relating to the gold mines. Mr. Atherton
says that good board can be obtained there at $10
per week, and provisions are plenty at fair prices.
The population of the place is about ICOO. Mr.
A. himself came to New York to purchase goods,
but finding that immense quantities have already
gone forward, will probably not make very exten

A pair of boots cost twenty dollars, of which,
however, there was but a small stock on hand when
Mr. Atherton left ; common blanket coats are worth
$40, and fine frock coats fetched $100, readily.
Mr. Atherton himself, sold a coat which he had
worn at intervals, for two years, at $80. Liquors
sold at twenty-five cents per glass, and champagne
was worth $4 a bottle in San Francisco. Real
estate, too, was selling at enormous rates—lots in
San Francisco, containing 25 yards square, selling
fur $10,000. Provisions were very plenty at San
Francisco and the diggings. Flour poured in in
great quantities, from Chili and Oregon, and came
down in price, from $25 per barrel to $16, at San
Francisco. The probability is, that the article has
fallen still further—perhaps to $10 per barrel.
Board in San Francisco was $10 per week.
Great as the discoveries of gold are, they are
equalled by those of quicksilver. The metal is
fiiund iri various parts of California, and the quan
tity is as abundant as it is in the mines of Spain.
Mr. Forbes, the proprietor of the mines, had
$30,000 worth of the article on hand at Tepee,
ready for market. It is found even within three
miles of San Francisco.
About two thousand emigrants have arrived in
California from Oregon, the Sandwich Islands and
different parts of South America and Mexico. In
fact, the gold fever rages as fiercely in Mexico as it
does in the United States, and there, as well as
here, expeditions are being formed to proceed to
El Dorado. Mr. Atherton says that it is not ad
visable for large armed parties to take the over
land route through Mexico, as the authorities will
be likely to interfere with them and prevent their
passage. Small companies can go with impunity
There were about a dozen vessels of various
kinds at San Francisco, when Mr. Atherton left.
The ship Rhone, Capt. Hill, was to sail soon for
Panama. Mr. Finley, her supercargo, was to go
w ith her.
The ship Huntress was sold for $40,000, and her
purchasers intended to send her to Valparaiso for a
cargo. At that place there was, at the last dates,
great excitement in regard to California. Every
one was leaving, or talking of leaving.
The cargo of the ship Undine, which was re
shipped at Valparaiso, was sold at Francisco at five
hundred percent, profit. This vessel was wrecked
in the Straits of Magellan, and Capt. Baker, her
master, arrived in this city with the proceeds of the
cargo in gold bars. The vessel was sold at Valpa
