CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
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
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,
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
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.
