Placer Intelligence. THE GOLDEN PROSPECTS.-- The most cheering accounts from that portion of the Gold Region, which through leagues of mud and water, may still be considered accessible, continue to be received. This is the mining section of the American River, with its three forks, North, South and Middle, and on which there are at present quartered for the winter, about 15.000 souls principally Americans. The intelligence is of the most flattering nature, and our statements are made upon the very best authority. We have no word from other mining localities, if we except a few facts substantiating information published a week since comprising accounts of the abandonment of various diggings in consequence of an increasing scarcity of provisions. Mr. JAMES QUEEN, a young gentleman who from the earliest discovery of gold on the American River up to the present time has very successfully conducted a prominent trading post at Mormon Island, has just returned from a short tour through tha...

City Surveyor's Office. — A very faithful and indefatigable public servant is the city surveyor, Mr Eddy, who has infused into his labors much of the true essence of abllity--if by his works he is to be adjudged. We visited his office a day or two since, and found, to our agreeable surprise, the affairs of the town, within his province, most carefully and thoroughly righted, which, after the "sublime confusion" reigning supreme for months successively, will undoubtedly be appreciated by the public. He has so systematized each function of his responsible office, that the difficulties heretofore presented to the owners or buyers of property in this city, for the want of facilities for its examination, are quite removed, and by the completion of a large hands...

Another Humorous Letter. We cannot deprive ourselves and readers of the pleasure of perusing the following letter. Though its date does not promise the "latest news," we venture to say that it will not be found entirely uninteresting. It is from the New York Sunday Times : VALLEY OF THE SACRYMENTO, April 20, 1849. EDDYTURS OF THE SUNDAY TIMES : — When I wrote before, spades was trumps--now it's dimunds.

WEDNESDAY MORNING, DEC. 12, 1849 The Kini«r»n»« In »«l>«y. There has been much apprehension and anxiety in the minds of the thinking community with regard to the emigration which started to come by the plains on the upper pass to this country. It was well known that a large number of families were en route, and very well grounded fears were entertained that the snows which had fallen in those mountain fastnesses had been most productive of suffering and death to the belated emigrants. Those rocky and sterile regions, through which the determined emigrant in his boldness and utter disregard of all dangers and privations is compelled to pass, afford but little cheer at any timo, pooplod only by wild herds of savago foes and tho bounding gnmo of tho forost . but when the cold blasts of winter sot in and the tremendous falls of snow occur, ono cannot help thinking of tho weary wanderer with a chilling sensation of tho heart. What difficulties and barriers will not man endure ...

Whether a marriage results happily or not it is none the less a " settler," 1 and therefore the appropriateness of the terra. The late papers from the States inform us that a divorce has been finally granted between the Hon. Pierce Butler and Fanny Kemble Butler. The married life of these parties has not been particularly smooth, notwithstanding the u divino Fanny" presented her husband with several little pledges of affection.
