(official.) Head Quarters, 10th Military Dep't. Monterey, California, July 15th 1847 Monterey, California* July 15th 1847. S Sir : — There is wanted in San Francisco an efficient Town Government, moreso than is in the power of an Alcalde alone to put in force. There may soon be expected a large number of Whalers in your Bay, and a large increase of your population by the arrival of immigrants. It is therefore highly necessary that you should at an early day have an efficient Town Police, proper town laws; town officers &amp; c., for enforcement of the laws; for the preservation of order, and for the proper protection of persons and property. I therefore desire that you call a town meeting for the election of six persons, who, when elected, shall constitute the Town Council, and who, in conjunction with the Alcalde shall constitute the town Authorities until the end of the year 1848. All the principal laws and regulations will be framed by the Council but executed by the Alca...

(CIRCULAR) TO ALCALDES AND OTHER CIVIL OFFICERS. WHEREAS, the Government of the United States being desirous to secure to the Californians the full enjoyment of their religion and religious priviledges, and the President of the United States having made it obligatory upon all authorities here to abstain from interfering with any of their church rights or customs, and whereas the rules of their church and (it is said) also their civil laws, forbid any but their own Priests from uniting members of their own church in marriage. I therefore direct during the existing state of affairs, no Alcalde or other civil officer will perform the marriage ceremony in any case where either of the parties are members of the Catholic church in California. Done at Monterey, the Capital of California, this 23d day of August, A. D., 1847, and the 72d of the Independence of the United Btates. R. B. MASON, Col. Ist Drag's. 16-c and gov. of California.

From Frazer's London Magazine. A GAME OF CHESS WITH NAPOLEON. (Continued.) Schmidt was the slowest chess-player I have ever seen. Me has been known to sit three-quarters of an hour over a move, his head covered by his hands; and then to be discovered fast asleep! ln everything he was the same. Correct as the sun ; but a slow sort of person for all that. Schmidt was the kind of man who, meeting you in a pouring rain; says, "What a wet day this is ! " A wholesale dealer in prosy truisms, and nothing brighter ; and yet covered all over with a portly assumption of consequence, which famously dusted the eyes of the vulgar. I had ever been a judge of physiognomy, and knew my man. How: many Schmidts' there are in the world !
