Steam Travel. If there is one event of the year gone by de- serving of commemoration as productive of the greatest possible good to the greatest portion of the community; then we are constrained to believe the introduction of steam facilities of communication between the cities and towns of California, the agent of that better and more abundant good, and an event, "at all events" of the first magnitude. The history of steam is a volume of wonders, and this is a tolerably well established fact. There is no recourse to disputation to be had in the premises, and we might go on until the train of life reached its journey's end, in expatiation of the might of its main impellent, which is universally conceded in this age of enlightenment, to be "steam — nothing but steam." But we have no motive and, certes, we are not in the mood. Well do we remember the early days of inland navigation — the tedious days and sleepless hours (there were mosquitoes in those times) passed in sailing up the S...

There was a very large collection of bidders and our friend George Ei Tyler, who was the auctioneer, did not have to wait Jong for bids, for it appeared a£ if they never would bo done bidding. During the sale there was quite an amusing episode somewhat unusual at an auction. Mr. Clark who was "in the market" held a deed for ono of the lots about to be sold which he had purchased at a former sale, and which he exhibited to the bidders. — Mr. Brannan made a speech, declaring the previous sale invalid and launching out into other topics. Several other persons spoke — there was a good deal of laughing, shouting, applause and excitement, but thero was no resort to "knock down" argument except by Mr. Tyler, who conducted that most successfully, knocking down the lots to the tune of $035,130.00. Tho terms ofthesalo were one fourth cash, ...
