Cos Sf«. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1855. From nre Legislature.—-Nothing of much in- j tcrcst Las occurred for the past week. There wasl no election for U. S.

The Asaembly then took up the bill and passed it by a vote of 35 to 21.— T'je bill passed tho Senate, February Ist, ayes 21, nay a 9. Stand from Under. — The handsome editor of the Californian must be laboring under cerebral oxcitemcnt, but perhaps if he upsets another jug of gas he may possibly regain his equilibrium, or, peradventure, burst bis troicsert. We are not surprised, however, to see our junior cotemporary spread hirn*elf, especially when liejjan do it on ; borrowed capital. True to his political we do not wonder at tho implication burled at Dr. Gwin, that he is the " greatest rascal in the pack," although our neighbor is professedly neutral it politics. We do...

Terrible Dianstcr. Trrim flip Knn Frunr.iurn C.hmnirlr tro lpftrn thnt. From the San Francisco Chronicle wc learn that a very keen competition has been for some time conducted on our interior waters between the California Steam Navigation Company and various Independent Companies. Running between the vessels of tho rival lines naturally ensued ; and ♦ho steamers have been driven to excessive speed. The press generally predicted (hut some dreadful calamity would soon result from such culpable management; and the public awaited the same in fear and trembling. It has come at last. "On the 27th ult. the steamer Pearl, belonging to the C. S. N. Company, and plying between Marysville and Sacramento, was blown to pieces, by an explosion of her boiler. This happened a few hundred yards below the confluence of the American and Sacramento rivers, and as the vessel was nearing the levee at Sacramento City. There were one hundred and twenty-two persons on board at the time, including tho crew. ...

LATER PROM EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Los Angeles Star — 8 February 1855

LATER PROM EUROPE. By the arrival of the Asia at Halifax we have r five (lavs later intelligence from Europe. The \ most important feature in her news is. that Prussia . declines to give her adhesion to the tripartite treaty, qualifying her refusal by the despatch of a special envoy to London with a mission to open separate negotiations with the Western Powers on her own account. This may he regarded as a preliminary step to the casting aside of tho flimsy veil with which the Berlin Cabinet has hitherto sought to disguise its Russian sympathies. As it is not likely that the coalition will longer permit the continuance of a neutrality which has not only interposed obstacles to the advancement of their interests in Germany, but also virtually defeated one of the great objects of the war—that of crippling the commerce of Russia—it is probable that Prussia i will be at once compelled to decide on either of two alternatives—eithex a full and entire adhesion J to the articles of the new t...
