The district of Alta California extends but about thirty five miles back from the coast, a ridge of mountains forming a boundary line to separate it from the in terior which is inhabited by Indians. The Government is puerile like all the Span ish govcrmcnts in America, the officers receiving little or no pay, making up the deficiency by the perquisites they obtain from bribes, &c. Alvarado the present Governor is like the most of them weak and vaccillating. In 1836, California de- r-iclurd itself independant of Mexico, and Alvarado was chosen governor. After some fighting but little or no bloodshed, and a good deal of negotiating, in which as usual, there was a great deal of talk, the affair was compromised by the Mexi cans acknowledging Alvarado as governor, but under the orders of Mexico. In Jan uary, 1838, Alv...

All parts of the establish ment are kept in operation ni'-i!it and day, and two sets of hands are thus kept em ployed. The Mexican trills employed give the proprietors the greatest satifac tion ; they learn with readiness, and ma ny of them shew considerable skill. They receive two reals per day when they first enter, which pay is increased as they ad vance in usefulness. Some receive three dollars per week. The proprietors who are both Knglishmeii, expressed them selves in vTerv high terms of their Ameri can assistants, and the establishment seems to be conducted with the utmost harmo ny. The only quality manufactured is of a coarse stout texture, such as can be pur chased at home at retail for about ten cents per yard, the Mexicans preferring this quality to any other. The proprie tors have a large establishment in the ci ty, where the cotton is sold at wholesale at 3() cents per ...

It may not be generally known, that a body of learned men in Great Britain have been engaged for some years in the "Commission" of dividing a more simple and convenient system of weights, meas ures, and moneys; and as the question is one of deep importance to our own coun try, it may not be amiss to prepare our readers with a few observations anticipa tory to the forthcoming "Report."
