PUEBLO DE SAN JOSE. The Rev. J. W. Douglass, a graduate of Yale College, and recently from New York as passenger in the steamer California, has received and accepted an invitation from the people of the Pueblo de San Jose to take up his residence there as a preacher of the gospel, and the sum of two thousand five hundred dollars has been promptly raised for his support the coming year. It will be gratifying to all good citizens at home, to know that the settlers in California are so thoroughly American in heart, as well as in name, as not to have forgotten the instructions which constitute the pride and glory of their native land. They are well persuaded that sound morals and general intelligence must ever be at the foundation of good society and good government, and they stand ready to receive with open arms well qualified teachers of youth and preachers of righteousness. Let not the friends of education and . virtue at home despair of California, but know, that if they choose to c...

Latest from the Mines. [From our own correspondent.] Sacramento City, March 28, 1949. Winter with its "heavy wet' is about over, and spring, warm, genial and soothing, has opened upon Sacramento. No angry skies brood over, nor flooded plains impede locomotion : the winter lethargy that had bound captive thousands throughout the valley, has been suddenly broken by the first bland breath of Spring, and every where—all, are awakened to an energetic renewal of business. A warm sun and mild southerly wind have, during the past month, worked wonders in dispelling the vapors of the earth, and drinking the moisture from path and highway; the roads from this place to different parts of the Placer are rendered passable, and communication with all points is easy and frequent. The Spring Season, the "opening of the Ball" —a period in the flight of '49 to which our entire country has looked enthusiastically forward, —having returned, Spring Trade may be considered fairly commenced; and this was ...

From New Mexico. Arrival of Lieut. Beale, U. S. N. — Severe Winter in the Mountains —probable fate of Col. Fremont, and his party. Lieut. Beale, U. S. Navy, the enterprising bearer of Government despatches arrived in this place via Santa Fe, New Mexico, on the 5th inst. He brings the duplicates of dispatches brought across Mexico by Mr. Parrott, U. S. Consul, at Mazatlan, some two months since. Lieut. Beale left Fort Leavenworth in October, and had great difficulty on the prairies, before reaching Santa Fe in January. Colonol Fremont, left Bent's Fort 20 days before Mr. B. arrived there, to cross the mountains by the headwaters of the Arkansas river, and Mr. B. thinks from the great severity of the winter and the extraordinary amount of snow upon the mountains, that much doubt exists as to his fate. He thinks it impossible that he could accomplish his object at such a season, and unless he has fallen among the Snake Indians, or some other friendly tribe, he believes that the whole p...

THE market.v Nearly all kinds of merchandize (dry goods) are gradually decreasing in price, in consequence of the great supply arrived and expected, and the probabilities are that goods will be sold for less than costs and charges in a few months.

OFFICIAL. NOTICE. HAVING been informed from various sources of the great suffering and needy condition of many of those deluded and thoughtless persons, who in violation of their plighted faith to their country, have deserted from the Pacific squadron, since the 9th day of October of this year ; and who are now paying the penalty of their transgression, under the combined suffering of disease, famine and exposure to an inclement winter; and that many of said deserters, truly repenting their rash and ill-judged act of desertion, would return to their allegiance and their ships, but for the fear of the penalty which the laws might impose, I do hereby say to all such persons, who are chargeable with no other offence against the laws of the Navy than that of desertion — great as is the enormity — return immediately, to your duty, and you will have no cause to regret your confidence in my clemency and forbearance.
