We have had in tho past two weeks consider? able disease among the neic /cries of the troops, the usual camp of barrack diseases of the climate tnd ship fever, but as cholera now has to hear the sin of all human infirmity with the timid, the re. port bas gone abrcad to tbat effect, while there is not a case entitled to it in one handred that occur. The same is true in relation to the disease which has shown itself, with fatal results, at Cardenas and other small towns on the north side of the is? land.

Everything is in readiness now, how ever, and the military encampment will be broken up to morrow morning. To-day Dr. Wozencroft and OoL Barbour, of the Commission, Judge Marvin, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Col. J.

They are then to make a detour and join the rest of the Commission and escort at Oraysonville. I conversed with two miners from the Mariposa region. Just arrived, who informed me that an Ameriown was murdered between the Mariposa and Merced, a few dajs since, by Indians. They also report that a rumo- war prevalent that another battle had occurred between the Indiana and a company of rangers recently raised, but as they could tell nothing further it may reasonably be set I down as an idle rumor.

Tbe F.odora steam-propeller, which left this i oit on Saturday last, with passengers and mules for the Trinidad Bay and 6wti Bluffs, encounter? ed a heavy gale of north-west wind, which lasted for thirty-six bours, during which the steamer be Laved as handsomely as any other able sea boat could do in such a gale and sea way It was beavy weather and a rough sea, and frightened the rough bsckwoodsmen, who were the bulk of the passengars. They bad never experieaced 8l> thing of the same kind before. A panic took poasessiou of a number of the pas? sengers who where sick, and while vomiting over tbe rail, they saw water escaping from the waste ripe of tbe boiler, and raised the cry that the ship Lad sprang aleak ' Tbe backwoods boys mas? tered and armed themselves with pistols, bo wie- ' knives and cutlasses, and insisted that the captain shoold pot back to San Francisco. This the cap? tain refused, and the passengers immediately mu? tinied, ordered tbe mate to take command and pstt back, or bloodshed would snsae. Tbe captain and mate consulted together, and it was agreed be? tween them that to prevent slaughter, the wishes of the mutineers should be complied with. The steamer was accordingly nut about, and arrived here last night about I o clock. 8ne ran along? side tbe Revenue-Cutter and apon an otHoer and crew coming on board, the mutineers were taken into custody. We have received this information from one of the pusengers. who says that tbe nt moat praise is due to the captain for the manner in which he acted in this critical emergency. There was no necessity tor putting back, for the gale was nearly over at that time, and if they had only continued in their coarse, they woold now be all sLfe at their destination.

About four weeks ago, a lamily of grislies, six in number, emigrated from the hack country to the Stanit'aut lliver, and \ visited Camp Washington, which is neirly tnid way between Janie- own and .Stockton. Not ! finding lufficient food ... thia camp, they retired to the woods behind. A Mr. Lenier, formerly of I Georgia, bearing ot this, took his ritia and tmma i nition, and started on foot in seirch of the atrat.gi.rs. He soon had an introduction to one, : whom he killed at the firet shot. A second and a 1 third met the samo fate, and with equal credit to , the hunter. By and bye a fourth presented him I sell to view, and received a bullet tr?m the same I old rifle. It waa not, however, a mortal shot, and I the errsged animal tamed upon toe hunter, who waa obliged to climb a tree. From this place of ' security be planted a pistol bullet in the forehead of the bear, which ended the contest. [Sonnra Herald. ?? ? .Tllacrllnneou*.

It ia said that a favorite, a kind of "Mans de Palais,'' exercises a eontroling influence in public affairs, while avoiding all responsibility for their acts. Tho subject of the recent diplomatic nomina? tions made by the President is soon to come bo tore the Senate, when a warm discussion is an? ticipated. The opposition to these nominations if baied oa the assumption that they are unnecessary, and that the state of the treasury doea not justily the increased expense which will be entailed on it. Sc: or Facio, tho present Minister to England, haa been retained in that office. Recent events have decided the Government in the step and it is said that Senor Payno, for whom tbe office was intended, favored the decision. The Siglo s ay a that Payno haa accepted the office of Secretary of Legation. It seems that the Government of Mexico is taking steps for the preservation of order. We notice an order from the Minister of War prohibit? ing t tliceri and employees of Government to mur? mur, or any way speak ill of the existing authori? ty or of the Government. He proposes beside to deprive tbe army of all civil righta.

This map is on a large scale, and is a work of great la? bor and scientific skill. The Indian hostilities in New-Mexico still continue. The traveler from Santa Fe to Fl Paso ia constantly in danger. After Lieut.

We have secured thecopper mines I and a large tract of country on tho U ila, which we did not expect- Col. Craig starts for the copper mines on the 10th January, to eatabliah a post. Tbe point established, says the Ualreston Nevt, is the intersection of the Ni parallel ot latitude with the Rio Grande, which is about 18 miles north of El Paso From this point the treaty pro? vides that the line shall ran due west till it strikes some branch of the Gila, aad thence odlow that stream to its juncture with the Colorado. In caso said line should not strike the Gila or any of ita branches, it is then to proceed west till it ap? proaches the nearest point to the Gila, from which point the boundary is then to rundae north to tbe Gila. It is now ascertained that the only branch ol the Gila, the westerly Matt can strike, connects with the Gila, somo fifty or one hundred miles west of the copper and gold mines, and rana in a notthwesterly direction, leaving the mineral region considerably within the United 8catea. It is yet doubtful wLetber this west liae will even strike this branch of the Gila at all, in which case it will have to run a little beyond the meri? dian of ion west, which is the nearest point to the main body of the Gila, being about one hun? dred miles to the soath. This boundary ia con? siderably to the south of the actaal boundary of New-Mexico, as understood by tbe Mexicans, and takes in a large portion of the country that has al? ways belonged to the State of Chihuahua.
