The Commodore left the ship in his barge at six o'clock on the morning of the 28th, ult. with his penant and the Hag ofthe Union lilying, after the appropriate salute the seamen were permited toman the rigging, alter three cheers, one loud and long three times three, made the distant hills resound with the voice ofthe hardy tars.

It is the fate of all men, who have done any thing worth notice, to find some who will approve of it. If Commodore Stockton, in the conquest of California, had pleased every person, even of his own countrymen, we should have been in...
