When the first call for troops was mado by tho President, nouo wero required from Califor nia, probably under tbo impression thnt the war excitement had not reached, the intensity Uj'od tho Pucific const that it had olrondy attained In tbo East. The fact did not, however, doter the loyal and patriotic citizens of tho golden Stato, from tak ing immediate steps to recruit volunteers and tender their services to tho general government. The Secretary of War, in a communication dated July 24th, 1861, accepted for three years, one regiment of Infantry and five compauies of Cav alry to guard the Overland Mail route from Cor son Valley to Salt Lairo and Fort Laratnio. Governor Downey, by proclamation dated August 12th, 18G1, culled for Volunteers for this service. On the 23d of Augnst, 1861, ho isfcHGd the following proclamation : Stxtk of California, Executive Dkp't., J SaCramknto, Augubf23, 1861. WiiEUEAS, by an additional communication from the Secretary of War, bearing date August the fourteenth, A. D. eighteen hundred and eixty ono, to tho Executive of this State directed, the President of the United StateB has called for four regimenla of Infantry, and one of Cav nlry, to be pluced at the disposal of Brigadier General B.

Now, therefore, i, John G. Downey, Governor of the State of California, and ( Jouimamier-in- 'hief of tho militiet, etc.. of the same, do herebv authorize and call upon the citizens, as many us shall be necessary to Oil up the preceding requi sition, to immediately form and orirtinr.j them selves into 44 volunteer companies " in accord- unco with the directions nnd requirements stated in sections Beveuu?en, eighteen and nineteen, of the statutes of this tetato, entitled an net in rota tion to the militia of this State, approved May ninth, eighteen handred and sixty one hntu companies will bo accepted and mastered into service according to tbo reception by Uie ujutant General ot the Mate, of the certtucaUj of orgButE&tion, mentioned so section eighteen of! said oct, aud reported by that officer to the Com- mnnder-in-Chief.

Volunteer companies already organized and commissioned are uxpected to report forthwith to tho Adjutant General, tendering their services to meet the requirements of this proclamation.

The other companies weio to be held in re serve to bo incorporated in tho regiment When called Upon by tho government, so as to fill it up to tho United States Army standard. One company was recruited in San Jose, and ono in Nevada. The officers of the former, wore, Captain, H. A.. Gorley ; First Lieutenant, John. Martoin, Second do, B. G Veslil. The oflicers of the Nevada Company were not named. It was the hope of Colonel Lippett, add his rns, that if their sei vices wero accepted, it could bo in connection with active movements in the East. But upon the call of the Governor, in bis first proclamation, for volunteers for duty on tho overland mail route, they came forward with commendable promptness, declaring their willing ness to bear arms wherever tho governmont might desire. It woe mado known that in coti nection with the authority to nuso tho regiment of Infantry and five companies of Cavalry, the Secretary of War had directed that the command be given to Captain, and Brevet-Major, Jaraus Henry Carleton, of company K, 1st IT. S. Bra goons, then stationed at LoS Aageles with his company, to be coktkuk. 3&?tuz Benbox, of Company F, oT tho Cali fornians at this post, returned with tha express. Ho loft bore three months fckice for a visit to California. Ho retucnod, ce ho went, by the Los Aogeles and La Pnz rotate. Ho "describes the road from tho former place to tho Colorado, as sandy and heavy in some places, but very well supplied with stations, where food c&a be had for man aod beast. The greatest distance botwoen these is forty-five miles. The road from La Pox to Weaver (the Ebrenberg, or Gird route, we believe tho latter gentleman first travelled it,) he pronounces excellent, saving a want of water at two or tbreo points. This remedied, by the construction of wells, it would bo ono of the easiest nnd best roads for heavy trains in tho Territory. Captain B. estimates the distance from La Pas to Weaver at 125 miles. IIo rep resents business at La Par. as rather dull, though there is a Inrge stock of goods there, and steamers arrive frequently. The stories of the Indiau troubles in this part of the Territory have been grossly exaggerated. He was told that it would bo unsafe for him to veotarMo Weaver without iv party of at least ten armed men, He started alone, however, and was unmolested. At ono point, where he left the road for water, ho caraa npon a rancheria of Apache-Mohaves, but they showed no hostility. This should satisfy the peoplo of La Paz that the country is entire ly safo for travel, and if the merchants there are awako to their interests they will loso ho time in having the necessary weila dag, and sending goods to tho Weaver and Walker mines. They will find a ready and remunerutivo sale for thorn, and a lifo and prosperity hero, which will abun dantly prove tho absnrdity of the stories, both of the Indian difficulties, and of tho oxhanstlou 61 the gold. SoLoiKus Meeting. At n meeting of the enliBted men of the garrison of Fort Whipple, District of Northern Arizona, consisting of companies G aud F, 1st Infantry, and a detach ment of company B, 1st Cuvniry, California Volunteers, held April 10th, 1864, to express their appreciation of and respect for Liout.-CoL J.
