MtrnmboMt l.»\» i« n«-«-. We have received a communication from a corresiHindent at tho new place called Norwich City, situated at the mouth of the Vuba river, at its junction with Feather river, giving an interesting account of the first trip of the steamboat Lawrence from New York on the Pacific. We hare not room for the whole of the communication, but make use of its contents. Tho officers of the Lawrence are Captain Crosby: Frederic Clifford, Engineer. She is 82 feet long, 23 feet breadth of beam, with a double, high-pressure engine, of SJ horse power. She was put together at New York, and is well provided with berths and cabins. Her running time was twenty-two hours from New York to Norwich, against a 3^ knot current. Sho took up 26 tons of freight and 20 or 30 passengers. Tho inhabitants of that section of the country felicitato themselves upon the establishment of steam communication with the lower districts. As she approached the various stopping places on her trip her adven...
Intcmtlnff from Orrirnrt. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 14 December 1849
Interesting from Oregon. We have received two numbers of the Oregon Spectator of Oct. 4th and 18th, published in Oregon city. This paper was the first published in the territory, and continued up to the time of the California gold discovery, when it died of the yellow fever. It was resuscitated in October last, commenced under the editorial supervision of Wilson Blair, and is issued semi-monthly, in size nearly the same as that of the Alta California. — Terms, $5.00 per annum. Gov. Lane issued his message to the Legislature of Oregon in July last, which is published in the Spectator. It occupies about four columns of that paper, and is a plain, practical sound-sense sort of an instrument, just such a one as is worthy the clear-minded and gallant Marion of Mexico. The following paragraphs are extracted from the message for the important information which they contain : "The Cnyuse nation remains unpunished for the niiisxncre at Wiiiilntpuc . but the wholo tribe will be held res|K)nwi...

l<ate«t from fin- "Dlgglna." [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 14 December 1849
l&lt;ate«t from fin- "Dlgglna." The late arrival from Chagres brought us the following from our epistolary agent at the mines. Like a large portion of the foreign correspondence of the press, it is vague and unsatisfactory j and we suspect that the fellow was three shoets in the wind when he put our sheet in the post office. — Noah's Times. Ranks of the Santv Claus, June 28. The gold has suddenly disappeared from the surface— J-least, ways most 1 , of it, and where wo used to got the hevvyest .weights, mi thin is picked lip but scales." Many arrive daily, egspecting a big harvest but find only a few small grains. The prcshos mettle now 'pears to be principally sittiwated about sixty feet under ground. At that depth, in a good place, a hard workin laborer may. do pretty well, if his constitootion dont cave in. There is said to be some big lumps yet at the Horaces of the mountain stremos, but as nobody has ever bin there, I am dubious whether the statement is reliable. The sun...

Ttic Late Thomu Hood. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Alta California — 14 December 1849
Ttic Late Thomu Hood. - Hood was a victim of the " literary ailment.' For many years, toward the close of his life, he was laboring under disease — habitually — dying slowly and yet he wrote on. In one of the last publications to which -he gave his name as editor, Hood's Magazine," he thus humorously pointed out the pains of the literary life, in an imaginary letter from " A Subscriber :"- ; ■- '• Sir, ■— By your not coming out on the Furst, I &lt; yon dude yon arc l«do- up, being, notorua-.

Poor fellow! as I often said, ho much head work, and, nothin but head work, will make a cherubbim of you ; and so it did. Nothing but write, write, write and read, read, read ; and as .our Doctor says, it's as bad t...

MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 17, 1849 \i»ih \nllon of «n»ii»«li«. The time is rapidly approaching when British j North America will bear that title no longer, i when the peo|,le of those regions will tbrow off | their allegiance to their sovereign Uueen. Victo- ( ria, and their national anthem of "Cod save, the , Queen" 1)0 replaced by "the Star Spangled Banner." It needs no seer to tell this, and he who . predicts it cannot claim to be a prophet. The people are arousing, the spirit of IJepuldicanism has i been infused by degrees into their hearts and ' they now pant for perfect freedom. Mild as may be the reign of Victoria it does not comport with i the spirit of the age— tho grasp that has it* l ages held the sceptre is daily growing more fecbl« and tho people are proclaiming their birthright to freedom. In Canada the strongest desire exists to dissever the claim which has so irksomely connected it with the mother country, but there is no desire to procure a separation vi ct armis if ...
