THURSDAY MARCH 11, 1873. REUNION OF OLD CALIFORNIANS. [New York Courier, Sunday. February 21st.] On the evening of February 11th, is;:,, there was assembled in this city a highly respectable party of gentle* men, most of whom had been residents of California prior to its admission as a State into this glorious Yankee Union. The objective point of this gathering of Argonauts, or pioneers, was to consummate the recent organ ization of a California Society and to have a good time generally with those who had basked in the sunlight of the Golden State in her earlier and less prosperous days. The reunion assumed the form of a" banquet, and the place selected for it to eventuate was the Sturtevant House, kept by two of the Leland's—a family more distinguished in the hotel business than any other we know of on this continent. We say this much of them, notwithstanding their lack of appreciation of a brauch of the press. Tlie invitations sent out to the banquet bore the names of such men as: Vice-Admiral S. C. Rowan, U. S. Navy; Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker, U. S. Army; Major Gen. H. Gates Gibson, U. S. Army: Hon. Rotlman M. Price, Major Gen. Rufus Ingalls,U. S. Army; Major Russell Myers, Gen. Francis E. Pinto, Jacob P. Leese, Jeremiah Sher wood, John Sickels, Jas. E. Nuttmau, Wm. Colligan, Willard B. Farwell, etc. A goodly array of distinguished gen tlemen on paper, but after all the actual labor attendant on the getting up of this affair fell to the hands of our venerable recruit, high private Francis I). Clark. Frank is a thorough go-ahead business man, and when on a committee he can successfully, it you give him his way, do the work of ten Major-Generals or Vice-Admirals. But of tlie banquet. It was a grand affair—grand in its attendance and grand in its management, but still grander in its menu. The Lelands ab solutely outdid themselves in its pre parations; and to say that of such pub lic caterers is to say all that is neces sary, for we have not the space to publish the bill of fare, or say more in the praise of tlie great house of Le land. We might, however, add that the tables were loaded at all times during the evening with the choicest wines of California vintage. But of the guests at the tables: General H. Gates Gib sou, U. S. A., now in command of Fort Wads worth, piesided. Gen. G. made his entree into Caiiforhia in 1848 as a second lieutenant TJ. 8. A., 3d ar tillery, Co. M, stationed at San Diego. No braver man ever drew a sword than is the gallant little Gibson. Next among the guests we noticed ex-Governor Rodman M. Price, of New Jersey. The Governor served in California as Purser on board of one of the ships in Commodore Sloat's fleet. Next we recognized Jacob P. Leese, a brother-in-law of the old Mexican Geneneral Vallejo. Mr. Leese settled in California in 1833. He built the first frame house that was erected in San Francisco. Com modore C. K. Garrison next attracted our attention. We rememc-er mm from the fact that he was one of the earliest Mayors of 'Frisco, and that too at a time when men of nerve were needed to sail the ship of State. The Commodore's connection with the Cal ifornia steamers, in its early days, must be known to all the world. And here sits jolly John Sickles. John is now the Secretary of the Union Gas Company, but he is remembered by the old Californians as clerk of John Minturn, the pioneer steamboatmau of California and owner of the steam boat Senator, that ran between San Francisco and Sacramento in 1849. Ah! that was a famous old boat—she came from New York, and was owned, we believe, by the Min turn's, and she made her weight in geld for her owners iv a year or two. Jehn charged the boys who were going to the mines twenty dollars up, and when they came back it was five dollars more. Many a hundred pounds of dust John handled in those days. And here too is General Jones, who started the first organized militia reg iment in California—near him sits Gen. F. E. Pinto, who served gallant ly with Burnett's regiment in the Mexican war, and then came to Cali fornia to take a hand in the golden harvest. And here again is our dis tinguished friend the Hon. Jeremiah Sherwood, who served in Col. Steven son's regiment, Ist New York Volun teers, California service, in Company F. Since that he has been a member of the Assembly here, and is now a prosperous Broadway merchant. And here too is Major Russell Myers, as good as they make men. The Major served as a private in company A, Captain Steele, in Stevenson's regi ment then, when the war closed, he was Deputy Sheriff under Malachi Fallon, and they together had a trad ing post at Jamestown, near Sonora. In the late war the Major was third In command in tlie gal lant 32d Regt. N. Y. Vols., and here too is brave George Leanard. He served as a private in Stevenson's Regiment and as a Colonel under Walker in Nicaragua, where he was badly wounded. Leanard served in Captain Nelson Taylor's Company. And good gracious! here is little Char lie McPherson —as a boy Charlie served as drummer in Co. B, Captain Turner, Stevenson's Regiment—when the late war broke out he served as drum major in the 22d Regiment, N. Y. Vols., and after the close of his ser vices with this regiment, Charlie took a chance again in tlie famous march of Sherman to tho sea. Well, by George! here, too, is one of the old stock—Col. James E. Nutman—who served as private in Company B, in the California Regiment, was, after that, Alcalda in the mines; then Chief Engineer in the San Francisco fire department, and is now a rich California merchant, just stopping here for a while to convince the world at large that he owns the finest patent pavement in the world. Ah, " Nut" is a high boy! By his side is seated our old friend William Colligan. He, too, served on board the U. S. ship Savannah, in California waters, un der Commodore Sloat, during the war with Mexico. We are glad -to know that instead of steering a trick or knotting a l >c, Coligan is now a broker in W ' street, with plenty of sugar to loan on solid collaterals, or to l»uy stock with when he gets a chance. Here, too, is Mr. Evans; a Newark manufacturer now. Wheu we first knew him, he was Sergeant of Co. I, in the California Regiment. And there is Mr. Farwell, an 1849 editor Alta, in 'Frisco, and by his side is seated Mr. Curtis, who married Al calde Sutter's daughter; and there too is Pearson, who was an auctioneer in Sacramento In 1*49. He crossed the plains when the redskins were a good deal more boisterous than they are now. Ami then again we see Prank Clark; tie was a private in Steven son's Regiment, Frank is a good fellow, but he does get awful orangey sometimes, especially when he has the affairs of State on hand. At this ban quet, all the old stock Californians missed the genial presence of nature's nobleman, John Wolfe, who was de barred from being with his old com rades in consequence of severe illness. Mr. Wolfe served with Captain Nag lee's 00. D, Ist N. Y. Volunteers. At the close of the war he became one of the first merchants in Monterey, Cal., from whence he retired with a compe tency to his home in this city. Mr. Wolfe has reared, with a most inter esting wife and mother, a large fam ily, and With his old comrades of other days, we express our heartfelt sorrow that In the full bloom of his manhood he should lie thus afflicted. We bring our sketch to a close by saying that at the banquet table there were a number of able speeches made by Gen. Gibson, Gov. Price, Mr. Leese, Messrs. Sickles, Farwell, Johns, Nutman, Clark and Col. J. M. Turner, wlio responded In behalf of the glori ous old regiment. Renrut. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. UOLD RGfOKT.
