Hammond, U. S. A., and Wm. Norris, Esq.; the maps are completed and may be seen at the office of S. S. Howison, in the building of the subscriber at Stockton.

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...

[Reported for the Alta California.] The Chilenos and other Foreigners in the city of San Francisco attacked by an Armed Party of Americans — Great Excitement — Meeting of the Citizens — Formation of a citizen armed Police — Arrest of the Rioters — Their Trial and Sentence. One of those whirlwinds of excitement which may now be said to have become periodical in San Francisco, was witnessed on Monday, July 16, 1849. Its immediate cause was an attack on the Sunday night preceding, by a large party of armed Americans, on several Chilean tents in different portions of the town. The tents were torn down and destroyed, their contents stolen or damaged, and their occupants knocked down, shot at, and otherwise maltreated. In two instances the shots took effect, wounding one young man severely in the left hand, and in the other endangering life by a bullet passing through the body in the lower part of the abdomen. Both these men were beaten also. The scene, as heard by those residing in the v...

Placer Intellligence. ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2, 1849. We have a few days later intelligence from the American river gold washings, from Yuba, and from Feather rivers. The news is unimportant. Many of the deposites of the Rio Americano have become nearly exhausted; but new discoveries every day occur, and since the floods have abated, the researches have in many instances proved flatteringly successful. Constant accessions to the mining community are taking place, and many of the old washings are entirely occupied by new comers. The miners of the last year form nearly a distinct division of the laboring class, and invariably recede to the newer and more distant deposits before the advance of strangers. The best of feelrng prevails, except in the matter of foreign encroachment, for our people are united in the determination to expel the vagrants of other nations from the mines, and the movement is a very general one we are informed. The roads through the coun...
