By the arrival of the Brig Monterey at San
Francisco on Thursday afternoon, from Quay
mas, the Evening Ledger received the follow
ing additional facts, ami confirmation of the
massacre of Crabb and his party at Cavorca :
It now appears that the sudden termination
of the enterprise was owing to an accident
which no foresight could prevent. The pur
port of Crabb’s letter to the Prefect of Altar
was no sooner made known to the inhabitants
of that place than they commenced operations
to exterminate the expedition. The most in
tense excitement was created throughout the
country, and a large force was soon ready to
commence hostilities.
The Americans were fully aware of the fate
intended for them, and resolved upon the most
desperate means to gain at least an apparent
advantage in the outset; they commenced the
engagement, and fell back upon the house
which they had fortified, and from which they
continued to fire upon the enemy with great
effect and with but little danger to themselves.
The Mexicans had fifteen killed and twenty-six
wounded, before the Americans had lost a man,
and it is doubtful what might have been the
result even with the great odds on the Mexican
side, had no accident occurred to decide the
fate of the little band inside the building.
Notwithstanding (hat every precaution was
used to preserve the building from taking fire,
the roof caught in several places at once, and
the flames spread rapidly. There was no alter
native but to blow off the roof, and General
Crabb gave orders accordingly. To effect this
quantities of gunpowder w ere thrown into the
(lames. But the work could not be accom
plished in time to prevent the disaster which
was apprehended. Red hot cinders were fall
ing in every direction, and although the men
worked w ith the energy of despair to preserve
the magazine, it took fire and blew up, tw enty
five men losing their lives by the explosion.
Quite a number were disabled by the explo
sion, and without ammunition or the hope
of succor, there was nothing left for them but
to surrender. Of the fifty-nine who escaped
the explosion, the life of but one, a boy of four
teen years of age, was spared. The rest were
shot, together with twelve others who had been
taken prisoners while coming to the assistance
of Crabb’s party. The execution took place
on the 7th of April.
Capt Walsh stales that the greatest excite
ment prevailed in and about Guay mas. in an
ticipation of (filibuster visitations.
There are between 500 and 600 troops at
Guay mas, ready to operate against any expe
dition for the invasion of the country.
The inhabitants look upon all Americans
and American vessels with suspicion, and Capt.
Walsh had some difficulty in obtaining bis bal
last. But for his acquaintance with the Cap
tain of the port, bis vessel would undoubtedly
have been seized.
Dbmockatic State Central Committee. —At
a meeting of the Democratic State Central
Committee, held at the city of San Francisco,
on Wednesday, the 20th day of May, 1857,
pursuant to call, it was
Item.Jvnl. That the next Democratic State Conven

Messrs. Thomas, Moore and Kedington were
selected ns the committee. The Committee
then adjourned, to meet at the call of the
Chairman. A. KEDINGTON,
Chairman Dcm. State Central Committee.
P. K. WooiiMiiiF., Secretary.
Naval. —We learn, says the Alta Califor
nia, that Captain Farragut, the senior com
manding officer at the Navy Yard, Mare Island,
received orders last mail, from Commodore
Mervin of the Pacific squadron, to fit out the
U. S. steamer Massachusets, with all possible
despatch. Her destination is supposed to be
Panama, to join the frigate Independence, the
flag-ship of the squadron, at present looking
after our interest there. The Massachusetts
lately returned from a fourteen month’s cruise
on the coast of Oregon and Washington Terri
tories, where she bus been employed in opera
ting against (be Indians in that quarter. The
sloop of war Decatcr, 16 guns, at last accounts,
was at Callao; and the St. Marys, 22 guns, at
San Juan. These vessels, together with the
sloopof-war John Adams, also carrying 22
guns, arc shortly expected to rendezvous at
Panama. The squadron will remain there un
til the settlement of our complex affairs with
the New Granadian Government, and be on
hand in case an emergency should arise re
quiring their services.
Siiootino by a Woman. — Chas. Frizel, a
veterinary surgeon, who keeps his office on
Market street, near Third, San Francisco, as
we learn from one of our exchanges, was shot
by a woman a few days ago, in that vicinity,
with a double barrelled pistol. The ball, or
wadding, struck and carried away a piece of
his coat sleeve, near the right shoulder, hut did
no other damage. The woman was immediate
ly taken into custody. She gave her name as
Hostile Espinosa. There was was no quarrel
immediately preceding the explosion.
The Collectorsiiip.— The resignation of
Mr. Latham, as Collector of the Port of San
Francisco, takes place on the 30th of June,
the end of the fiscal year, and not upon the
Ist as has been stated.
Drowned. —On the 6th inst, Mr. Henry Sam
mis, in attempting lo cross the Sacramento
river, near Portuguese Flat, in a canoe, rtas
drowned. Mr. S. was from Ohio, where he
leaves a wife and family
A Wail from Columbia.— Many of the ill
fated gentlemen who perished at Cavorca re
sided in the town of Columbia, in Tuolumne
county. The Columbian thus speaks of the
massacre: “ With a sad heart we arc railed
upon to record the untimely fate of the brave
and noble men who a short time since left our
State to try and better their fortunes in Sonora.
The scene of men dying on the field of battle,
when the hot blood is rushing through the
veins and they expecting the fate of warriors,
can be looked at calmly and with resignation;
but to see them butchered in cold blood like
dogs, and to have indignity heaped upon the
remains of what was once high-spirited hu
manity, stirs up feelings of revenge in friends,
and excites pity for the object and disgust to
wards the perpetrators, even in enemies. Mex
j ico is noted for brutality, but no act that she
j has ever committed can compare in cruelty
with this last fiendish atrocity. Fifty-eight
men, after surrendering and laying down their
arms, with the white flag flying at the front of
I their column, were seized, bound and shot.—
j This may be in accordance with the law of na
tions, but the last act of the drama would give
a South Sea Islander eclat in his own country,
* and supersedes all our former ideas of the hor
rible. The leader of the unfortunate party —a
man beloved by all who knew him—was tor
tured and brutally murdered by these Mexican
wolves, amid bowlings that w ould have been a
feature in Pandemonium ; and some of his poor
wounded companions, unable lo help them
selves, were slain on American soil, and their
bodies left to feed the better portion of Mexi
can creatures. With some of the ill starred
party we were acquainted, and our eyes moisten
as we call to mind the parting with the Oxleys,
Taylor, Hoyt, Gillion, Watts, Carter, Wilson,
Coates and Allen, for they were men to be
respected and beloved. Buoyant with hope
and expectation, they pledged their lives to the
enterprise, and the pledge has been required.
The soil of an infamous country has drank
their blood, and relatives and friends 4 mourn
and refuse to be comforted because they are
not.’ Columbia has lost some of her jewels
and the State some of her brightest stars.—
May the penalty required of the ruffianly cow
ards who consummated the deed be fearful I”
I.a ikk from Utah. -By the arrival of Mr. Thomp
son, exprewman, at .Sacramento, we have dates from
Salt Lake to the 25 th of April, twenty-four days later
than last advance*. We copy from the Sacramento
Uniim :
On Saturday, the filth May, just before Mr. Thomj»-
■on left the Mormon Station, a parly of ten men arrived
there from (irent Salt Like City, which [dace they left
on the 25th of April twenty-four days later than our
former advices. The party consisted of Kcmpton and
brother, from Hear River in this State ; Merkiey and
Maker, of Canon Valley; Price, of Washoe Valley, and
Missionaries on their way to the Sandwich bland.-.
Mr. Kcmpton had with him three wagons and nineteen
hornet in fine condition, which he was biking to his
rancho on Hear River. They passed, on the Hiinibdt,
a party with fifteen wagon, from (Jreat Halt Lake, on
their way to <'arson Valley, and three droves of rattle
designed for this Stale. Thev intended to move in n
few days.
By this arrival we have additional news from Salt
lake. The dissensions among the Mormons had come
to an issue. Three hundred of those who had l»ccome
disgusted with the rule of Brigham Young, who go
' there by the appellation of “ Apostates," bad left for
the Atlantie States. Two of the Apostates hail also
arrived in Carson Valley, having run away from Salt
Like on the Oth of April, and swam Rear River, near
by, to make good their escape. They t* II some hard
stories about the condition of the Saints. According
to their accounts there are six thousand Apostates at
• Irent Salt Like, who are in constant fear of n hand
of bravadoes, employed by Hrigham Voun f, known as
the “ Destroying Angela." They say that dead bodies
are constantly found about that place, and that while
the Mormons attribute their murder to the Indians,
the Apostates believe they are murdered by the “ De
stroying Angels." They also represent that the lead
ing M ormons preach openly against permitting any
women or children to leave there.
Kempton's party was accompanied the first day as
far out us Hear River, by President Hrigham Young.
On the 26th of April he left them for the North, In
tending to go by Port Hall to Salmon River, In Oregon
Territory. His object was to look out for a now *tu
tion in that country. Whether he was preparing to
remove there himself or not, was not known.
At < Jreal Salt Like there had l>ecn little or no money
I during the winter. Wheat was wiling at $1 per bushel,
and g'K»d cattle were very cheap for cash. Provisions
were plentiful. A train of forty hand-carts, with three
| missionaries to each cart, had left for the Suites, and
President had sent on forty t ms of Hour to sup
ply his statifes between that place and the Missouri
River.
Tiik Trial of Ned McGowan.— We copy
the following telegraphic despatch, dated Napa
City, May 19th, from the Sacramento Union :
The case of The People rg. Edward McGow
an, was called this morning at eleven o’clock,
Judge McKinstry presiding. The indictment
was read, and Mr. Coffroth (McGowan’s attor
ney) waived all objection to the same on ac
count of some slight errors contained therein.
The accused pleaded 44 Not Guilty.” District
Attorney Edgcrton agreeing, Mr. Coffroth (on
account of the absence of his associates, Messrs.
Bales and McDougall,) moved that the trial
he deferred until Friday next. It was so or-

I Mysterious Death. —The San Andreas cor
' respondent of the San Joaquin Republican
gives an account of the sudden death of Mr.
George Leonard, proprietor of a lager beer sa
loon in that place. The doctor says he died
of apoplexy, but many think he poisoned him
self. lie and his wife lived unhappily together; j
! a separation was agreed upon, but they could
! not arrange about the children, of whom there
were several. Finally the woman started out
with her boy ; the husband followed, but soon
I dropped, and in a few’ minutes expired. Mr.
L. was a German, and was formerly from Up
per Calaveritas.
Greasy Profits. —One house in Louisville
has cleared no less than $300,000 during the
last season in the pork trade; another,
$208,000; another, $150,000; and several
SIOO,OOO each.
The Steam Wagon. —The Sacramento Item
gives an interesting description of the Overton
Steam Wagon, now being constructed in that
city. The machine, when completed, will he
nominally of ten and a half horse power, but
practically of much greater capacity. The en
tire length of the wagon bed wilt be 23 feet,
and the width 7| feet. It w ill be run upon
four w heels of 6 feet in diameter, 18 feet apart
from centre to centre, and nine feet apart in
width. The frame work is supported by
leather and steel springs. This frame supports
a boiler of 11 feet in length and 3 feet in diame
ter, in front of which is a w ater tank, to con
tain 500 gallons of water. The station of the
“ pilot” is in front of thcijoiler, and his duty is
to steer the wagon. The position of the engi
neer is at the hind end of the boiler, at which
the fuel is carried, and the fires are kindled.—
On each side of the boiler is a cylinder which
by their action through crank and cog-wheels,
turn an eccentric shaft beneath the bed, by
which eight substantial “ legs” are made to
“ walk.” They raise and descend alternately,
four of them nlw’ays being on the ground at
once. They are set at the proper angle, so
that with each revolution of the shaft the en
tire power of the steam is applied to pushing
the wagon forward. These legs are hollow,
and contain india rubber cushions, for the pur
pose of preventing jarring. It is firmly be
lieved by Mr. Overton, that these wagons can
be made available even in our mountains, for
hauling heavy loads. Gentlemen of ample
mcMMi are engaged In the enterprise.
Assaulting the Chinese. —Last week some
robbers entered a Chinese store in Dutch Ra
vine, Placer county, lied the occupants togeth
cr by their tails, and proceeded to rifle the
premises. They succeeded in finding and car
rying away about $2,500 in money. The Chi
nese know the rascals, but their evidence being
invalid, no steps can be taken for arresting the
robbers.
Rates of Passage. —The rates of passage
by the P. M. Steamship Sonora, which sailed
from San Francisco on the 20th inst, were:—
Frst cabin $275 ; second do., $225 ; and steer
age, $l5O. We understand that a charge of
one per cent, is added to meet the State capi
tation charge upon emigrants.
No Pay.—The Supervisors of El Dorado
county have determined that jurors and wit
nesses in criminal cases can receive no pay for
their services, time or travelling expenses, in
that county.
