When the Convention first met, the prominent whig candidates were Hon. T. K. King and Hon. John Wetlicrcd. and the democrat ic candidates were Col." Fremont and Mr. Heydenfe t. Mr. WctheH ed finally abandoned the contest, and it was narrowbd down to the three others named. : After nearly' 15j) ballotings, the Convention,; finding it impossible to make, a choice, adjourned till the 1st of January next. King had the highest vote'on the last ballot, but lacked six or eight votes of an election. Ileydeiifelt was I the fa vorile of the democrats. Fremont who commenced with only a, half dozen votes gradually increased ia strength, until before the jConvcn tion adjourned his vote equalled that of Heydenfelt. On ithc' last day the latter withdrew, and Col. Welier was substituted in his place, who received exactly the vote be fore given to the withdrawing can didate. A good deal of feeling ex ists on the subject, ami the senatori al question wiil enter largely into the next political canvass. i ' On Sunday, 23d of February, San Francisco was in a tremen dous state of excitemmt on account of ihe anticipated execution by the populace of two i noted scoundrels, Steward and Winfrcd, for nearly murdering Mr. Hanson, a respecta ble merchant of that'place, and rob bing him of $2,000. .A meeting of citizens was cafed, several of the most influential and .wealthy men presided and the prisoners were given a fair trial by jury. The jury, however, disagreed, and the ollicer of justice took possession of the culprits. At Sacramento City a similar affair occurred, but the offender didjiot escape so easi ly. Frederick U6c,. a notcdmb fer, shot through jtho hcadSa Mr. Charles Dyers, for interfering to put an end to a quiml in which lie was engaged.

One very important question was discussed, but whether any final action was ta ken upon it, we are nnablc to say. It is to refuse to take risks on steamers and vessels commanded by incompetent seamen, were representatives there, from several companies in New York,and from Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indi ana, and Wisconsin, and agents representm niqs. ) several eastern compa- Western, Wir'a'ida.
