She was very soon arrested, and cn Tuesday last, had ber examination before a special t-rm of the county court, and was sent on for fur ther trial at the circuit court in October.

Nothing of importance had occurred on the Isth mus since the sailing of the last steamer. The tchooner Bermuda, and British steamer Magdalene, were In port when the Star of the West •ailed from San Juan. IMPORTANT FROM CHIN*. About «n hour previou* to the sailing of the Cor te* from San Francisco, the Enelish clipper ship North Fleet arrived at San Francisco from Chins in a passage of 44 day*, bringing intelligence ot the surrounding of Canton by the rebels, and stating that the foreign residents had all left the city. CANTON SURRENDERED TO THE REBELS. The rebels are represented to have attacked Can ton with irresistible bravery.csusing a psnic among the inhabitants, and It wss *ocn surrendered with out mucb fighting. ANNEXATION OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. A treaty has been concluded between the Ameri can Commissioner and the Government of tbe Sandwich Islands for the annexation of the Islands to the United States Tbe treaty was dispatched by mail for San Francisco on the 16th. All the mem ber* of the King's Council are in favor of annexa tion except two. The King is the most active pro moter of the treaty. Thedetall* of the treaty have not trauspired. Eight English and French vessels of war had ar rived at Honolulu. Tne object of their visit is un known. CALIFORNIA INTELLIGENCE. Our San Erancisco correspondent state* that the markets continued depressed, and most of the sta ples were declining. The stocks of merchandise were kept full by constant arrivals, and the demand from the country whs slight. The spirit of specu lation was not active. Lieut. Beckwith, ofthe overland surveyineparty, has arrived at Sacramento. He examined fire pas ses north of Noble's pass, and pronounce all im practicable for a railroad except Noble'* and one next north. All hopes of an arrangement between the wing* of the democratic party of California has been abandoned. There i* little doubt that the whig* will carry the State, though it Is thought that the Know Nothings hold the balance of power. They have organized in fell the chief towns. The town of Kidwell has been destroyed by fire. A number of murder* had taken place throughout the State. An American named Reed had been killed. In the city of San Francisco, building operations are being carried on to an extent whicb is quite ex traordinary. Wages per day are as follows: House carpenters, 5 a $9: joiners, C a $8; stone masons, $7; bricklayers, $8; plasterers, $7; blacksmiths, $tr. turners, 3 a $5; brass founders, §.">; wheel wrights, $5; carriage makers, $(>; and printers $50 per week, but for one man employed there are two or three looking for work; and a good, fust work ' man will obtaiu a situation at $10 per day, when a poor hand would not get a place at $2. A band of robber*, a portion ol the notorious Jo aquin's followers, have gone to Marysville for the purpose of marauding, robbing, and perpetrating other outrages. Mining operations arc as usual said to be highly prosperous. Great discoveries of gold were reported to have been made at Santa Barbara. However, the "big strikes" only are mentioned in the papers, while the disappointments, the hardships and the misery which hundreds through the mines sutler are never recorded. The depression in the San Francisco money market still continues, and the people are patiently waiting till the shipping mania, which prevails so extensively at the East, dies out. Judge Karwell had taken bis seat on the bench. Mis* Laura Keen had left quite unceremoniously for Sidney, Australia. Miss Catherine Hayes gave a concert at Honolulu, and left for Australia. INCREASE OF POPULATION. During the first seven months of the present year the total number of immigrants who arrived at San Franciico was 23,020 —departure* 13,002, leaving a net addition to our population of 19,958. Forty three per cent, of the excess of arrivals over departure* were Chinese, and we have the morti fying fpectacle of 10,655 white inhabitants leaving for the Atlantic States arid 9,247 Chinese arriving to supply their place. Tbe Chinese question is again beginning to be agitated throughout the State, and in some places considerable opposition and dislike are manifested to the Asiatics. Several Chinese vessels have lately been seized for carrying an excess ot passenger*. The Poto mac was sold for $7,400, for an offence of this kind, and three other vessels have been seized and will be confiscated. In two, the scurvy broke out and carried ott'larte number*. Some 80 or 90 died on board the and after her arrival it was deemed prudent to compel the passengers to perferm quarantine at Goat Island; forty or tihy more died on the Island. The Exchange arrived in a somewhat similar condition. One hundred of the passengers died on the voyage, and nearly all the rest are sick with the scurvy, and are dyinu oft very fast. The expense entailed on the city by the I.ihertad amounted to nearly $12,000, and the city council will take some measures for the adoption of a police regulation to prevent this excessive immigration of Asiatics. OREGON. Hon. John Davis has resigned the Governorship of Oregon. He returned to New York in the steamer. SAN FRANCISCO MARKETS. Haxall Flour is quoted at $11 25 all 50. Hams 14 cents.
