REAL ESTATE. THE CITY OF SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO. — The undersigned beg leave to inform the public that a survey of the city of South San Francisco has just been completed, and a map of the city is now to be seen at the store of DeBoom, Townsend, & Co., on Clay st. The site is located on the Bay of San Francisco, two miles southerly of the city of San Francisco, and in plain sight of the shipping in the harbor. The same depth of water found in the harbor of the city of San Francisco is to be found in the harbor of the city of South San Francisco, and along the bay between the two harbors. The harbor is more securely protected from the wind than the harbor of the city of Sau Francisco, and ships of the heaviest burden may lay within a boat's length of the land at many points, and quite close generally along the whole front of the city, affording the best facilities for discharging cargo. The land rises in a gentle sloop from the water, and is composed of a rich clay soil. The...

Those persons who have visited Stockton cither on business, or ii panning to and from the mines, need ■o description of its location, and it is deemed quite sufficient to state, for the information of others, that the town ia situated at the head of navigation on the Sun Joaquin, embracing within its limits four navigable channels, communicating directly with the river, and each affording ample depth of water for vessels of any draught usually engaged in the inland trade 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, such a...

New York of the Pacific. The City of New York, of the Pacific, situated at the head of ship navigation upon the bay of Suisun at its junction with the rivers Sacramento and San Joaquin, has been most accurately surveyed by Captain R. P. Hammond U. S. A. and laid out in the most beautiful and convenient manner, and maps have been prepared by E. H. Rowe, Esq. Engineer and land surveyor, pointing out clearly each and every lot within the surveyed limits of the city, and the proprietors now offer them for sale to the public. Along the entire water front of the city a public street is laid out one hundred and fifty feet in width, beyond which no ground will ever be sold, and the proprietors therefore guarantee to the purchasers of all lots fronting on Water street that no building shall ever be erected between their purchase and the water. There is no point along the entire water front of the city at which vessels of the largest class cannot lay within 30 feet of the bank of the river, a...

A Letter from the Mines. ALTA CALIFORNIA. SAN FRANCISCO, FRIDAY, AUG. 31, 1849. The following letter was addressed us from Wood's Creek gold washing, one of the tributary streams of the San Joaquin, by a gentleman who adopted the toilsome life of a miner, early in the spring. Although not intended for publication there are many interesting facts which appear at better advantage presented in the unpretending form of a private communication. It is dated in June last, and has been prevented from hitherto appearing by a press oft other matteri. DEAR SIR, — I promised you before I left San Francisco, that I should write you my impressions of the country and mines, with any intelligence of interest which might come to my knowledge or under my observation. — A post has been established here, and after being nearly three weeks at these mines, and either myself or others of our party at nearly all the neighboring ones, I knock off work this evening an hour before sunset in order hurriedly to...

Tlif Eutcrn and California Politic*. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Alta California — 31 August 1849

The Eastern Press and California Politics. Some months ago, when complaints were loud and bitter against the course pursued by the late Alcalde of this district ; and when a source, from which we had a right to expect aid, in rectifying the numerous existing evils of the administration, withheld even its countenance from our proceedings, as an outraged community, we published — more particularly for the edification and instruction of our brethren in the east — a concise, though complete chapter, embracing a record of the events which had conspired to produce the excitement " convulsing the town," and a thorough exposition od the powers and parties operating prejudicially to its interests. When we mailed our large "steamer edition" of this number, it was with mingled hopes, but with a scarcely suppressed doubt, that the magnitude of the evil represented, the extent of our requirements, and a true state of the existing difficulty would be clearly and correctly comprehended by the pres...

Emeute at Macao. The Hong Kong Register, Extra, gives the following particulars of an excitcment at Macao: SATURDAY, 3 P. M., 9th June, 1849. We deem the following account of an exciting affair at Macao worthy of an Extra. We had heretofore given Senhor D'Amaral much credit for his courage and determination, and we had esteemed him as not wanting in general good sense ; but, on learning the following particulars, for the general correctness of which we can vouch, wc are quite at a loss to account for conduct so unworthy of any enlightened governor of a colony in this — the middle of the 19th century. From the manner in which the circumstances were detailed to us, we cannot see any excuse which Senhor D'Amaral can make for the unwarrantable seizure of a British subject. The whole case will doubtless form matter for much official correspondence. The English residents in Macao may see some little cause for alarm; but we trust, His Excellency's after-conduct will show that the present u...

The Progress of San Francisco. Never, in the history of the world, has the sun shone upon a scene of such energy, industry, enterprise, business excitement, and progress, as the city of San Francisco exhibits at the present moment. The waves of emigration which have been so long swelling and accumulating, seem at last to have rolled upon the Pacific strand in one mighty billow. And with it has come the strong arms, ardent minds, literary talents, business capacities, political intelligence, creative genius, and indomitable energy of that portion of the Anglo-Saxon race which has founded and sustained the "Great Republic" of the earth. Gold, the most insidious of charmers, has swept the chords that sway men's minds, as they were never touched before ; and the moving, driving, swaying, mingling, bubbling and boiling mass would almost seem to have been infected with a madness that is as potent, though not so deadly, as the bewildering dance that marks the venom of the Tarantula. And wh...

Placer Intelligence.. The month of August multiplied the number of gold washers on the principal streams of the Sierra Nevada ; but the prospects for the mass crowding on are but imperceptibly lessening. The waters are nearly at the lowest stage, and quite in proportion to the increase of laborers the chances are rendered more favorable by this circumstance. New washing have been discovered, and old ones abandoned. We have no prodigious gold stories to relate, but confining ourseIves to the simple assurance of good luck for those who labor, we trust not to defeat the expectations of the most visionary. The most southerly stream occupied by miners, is Mariposa River, about 20 miles southeast of the Merced. The Sacramento river probably forms the most northerly boundary stream of the Placer, but it is erroneous to suppose the region watered by it auriferous, Gold has never been found upon that stream in quantities sufficient to justify contitued labor. Its "golden sands'' have never b...

[For the Alta California] The California Gold Region. It is now nearly two years since the discovery of the gold mines in the country, and yet it is for the first time, we can say that we are able to give a correct account of them, an account that can be relied upon. Heretofore we have heard nothing but Arabian Nights stories about the gold region, drawn, if possible, with more vivid colors than even the Asiatic fancy could conjure up. The whole civilized world became electrified with these surprising stories and set in motion, and every day brings strangers to our shore from the most distant regions of the earth. So far so good ; but it may not be so much longer, when crowds from Europe will begin to pour upon these shores. We feel it our duty, in view of bad consequences that all exaggerations do produce, to contribute our share towards rectifying the impressions that went abroad upon the subject of the mines in this country. Even our government at home had not received an officia...
