rous murders and robberies, committed by a
Mexicsn bandit, named "Jotuin," who is said
to be the chief of a band or desperadoes of sixty

Ureat efforts have been made to capture him and

Tiie sickness on the Panama steamers recant

is not difficult to comprehend how very distres

passengers who were not sick. The voyage to
California, on the crowded steamers, through a
tropical climate, is indeed a serious and some
times a most perilous undertaking. Asa gene
