For The California Star. Mr. Editor. — In yoisr concluding remarks in your last paper relative to the late insurrection, you say "allied end wounded — none. It is a reraarkabla fact that most people attach great importance to a battle according' to tbe numbircf killed and wounded. The skill and .judgment display, seenn to be a secondary j consideration. In order to piace the subject in j its true light, allow me to present two cases, and task of you to say which ccmmar.der dJterve3 the ■tost credit? . An army of 20,000 men, engages another of j 40,000, the commander of the former by great 'skill and bravery defeats the latter, but with a Ios3 of 5,000— Lis opponent 10,000: the various manecuvors of the victorious General is scarcely thought of; but the loss on both sides wins him tho admiration of the world. The other cas» — an errny of 5,C00 meets a | similar force ; but he latter after a short engage- ; mint, retires without any loss on either side; a ; parley ensues, in which the...

Yerba Buena and San Francisco Bay As we have never seen in any of the numerous journals published by travellers, a correct dlscription of this part of California, we design from time to time, to give to our readers abroad, all the information that we may be enabled to procure in relation to it. At present we will confine ourselves to the town in which we live, and the circumjacent country. The magnificent accounts of one have excited distrust wherever they have been read; while the manifest intention of others to puff themselves into importance and notoriety, and fill their pockets at the expense of the curious and credulous, has destroyed all the force and weight of the few facts coninued in their works. Instead of being of any benefit to the country, they have done it a great injury. We have just read "travels" of one of these self-styled travelers in California, Thomas J. Farnham, and we find it to be nothing but one continued strain of bloated bombart, from beginin to end. This ...

News from Oregon. Tke American bark Toulon, Capt Crosby arrived here on the 27th inst., from the Columbia river, having made the passage in ten days. -- She Is loaded with flour and lumber. A few hours after the arrival of the Toulon, the Hudson Bay Company's schooner Cadboro, Capt. Scarborough, came in. She also, made the passage from the mouth of the Columbia river in ten days. She has on board the officers and crew of the United States sloop of war Shark, which was wrecked a few months since at the mouth of the Columbia. From Mr. C. Smith, one of the passengers on the Toulon, we have obtained a file of late Oregon city papers from which we glean the following items. All the emigrants from the United States by the old route bad arrived, and many of those by the new route through the upper part of California, marked out last summer by Mr. Applegate. There was on the last of November, one company still in the Umpqua mountains suffering greatly for the want of provisions, and from th...

Condition of the Late Emigrants. We would call the attention of the authorities of our government here, to this class of our citizens. They have come here without any previous correct knowledge of the situation of the country, expecting to find the greater part of the farming lands unappropriated, and that they would be able soon after their arrival, to get grants for such portions as they might select. In this they have been disappointed. They find the greater part of the country taken up by large grants of from five to twenty leagues. Many of them are too poor to buy, even at a very low price, and in order to get land, must go soma distance beyond the present settlements where they will be exposed to all the dangers and difficulties incident to the frontier of a new country unless they will be permitted to occupy the mission lands, which are now the public property of the United States. We would therefore suggest to the authorities of our district the ????? en permission be given ...

Capt. Burrus. The death of this gallant officer has left a void in a large circle of friends with whom we sincerely sympathize. We knew Mr. Burrus personally, and a more amiable and gentlemanly man it has never been our fortune to meet. He fell at the head of his men, leading them on, a few moments after giving the order to "cheer and charge," to which our contributor has so happily alluded. The circumstances of his death, reflecting so much credit on him, as a gallant officer, and a brave man, we trust, may in some measure, alleviate the sorrow which all must feel, who knew him, or had been in any way associated with him. The writer of the following lines, to judge alone from them, possesses a lively fancy, fine genius and deep feeling. The measure is eccellent and well adapted to the subject. We hope the author will continue to court the Muse and contribute to our columns.

A Tribute to the Lamented Barrus. Bring laurel to deck the brow of the brave, Bring the flag of the star and the strip, Bring music to chant o'er the warrior's grave, Who fell in the van of the fight; Bring hearts to his low bed of earth, That knew him and treasured him here, Who have him in joy, and joined in his mirth ; But meet him at last with a tear. (Space) His proud soil would not bear The shame that envy strove to east, On him, whose first and dearest care Was manhood's honor -- to the last. With upraised arms and gallant front -- With " cheer end charge " they ride, And foremost in the battle's brunt, Brave Events fell, and died. (Space) Then gather around his lowly bed, With half mast flag, and muffled drum. Pay honors to the gallant dead, Come to a soldier's burial -- come ! We'll write no epitaph of words, We'll raise no stone on high ; But grave his name upon our swords, On watchword, and our battle cry. J.C.C.
