J. A. Yoell, merchant, corner of Centre street and Levee, Stockton, is the authorised agent for the Alta California, in and for the District of San Joaquin. ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY, JULY 12, 1849. GREAT DESPATCH. — A great deal has been said about the difficulties of discharging cargo at this port. It would seem from the following fact, that the delays are owing to want of energy on the part of persons concerned, rather than to other causes. For instance, Capt. Hall, of the bark Ocean Bird, discharged his whole cargo, (three hundred tons) at DeWitt & Harrison's wharf, in the short space of five days. ! INDEPENDENCE. — The return our National Aniversary was marked with no public festival nor ceremony of any kind. No parades, no public dinners, no balls in the evening, nor exhibition of fire works, if we except the tame explosion of a few Chinese rockets prevailed upon to partake of the liberty of the occasion. The jubilee among the little folk though migh...

For the Alta California. STANZAS. BY STEPHEN C. MASSETT. The light of love has ceased to burn Within the chamber of my breast — And never more shall it return To guide me to its place of rest; A weary waste has now usurped, The place where bloomed the rarest flowers, And clouds of darkest night hung o'er My waking and my sleeping hours. Thus have I sung — but ne'er again, Shall lip breatee aught the heart may feel; But I will bear alone my pain, To none my hidden thoughts reveal — For silence best can speak the woe To which no after years can bring — Howe'er Life'a chequered courae may flow A soothing balm from Hope's glad spring. San Francisco, July, 1849. An Orkney Sea Serpent. — The naturalists who are at present so puzzled with the sea monster beheld from the Daedalus, should set about inquiring after the following counterpart, of which some account must exist.

The depth of the river and channels, as well as their capacity for navigation, are abundantly attested in the fact, that at this present time thirteen seagoing vessels, suc...
