(Correspond? nee of the Californian.) Sonoma, Alta California, Jan. Bth, 1343 Mr. Editor :— This has been a day of general excifement here, not only on account of its being the anniyer. snry of Gen. Jack-tons victory at New Orleans, in honor of which a grand salute ires fired by the New York Volunteers stationed here, but oh account of a foul and dastardly crime committed by William W. Scott, th' result of a gambling operation last night. It appear* that a Mr. Mcßice nud Scott had a falling out at tho gaining table and that Me Hire drew deadly weapon? upon Scott, who not being armed at the time, threatened tho life of Mcßico on some future occasion. So about 9 o'clock this morning, Scott proceeded to the lodging of Mcßice with loaded pistols, where he found him Tri bed and report says asleep, when he fired one of the pistols and immediately after threw it out of the window. The ball*, for tho pistol was loaded with two, passed into one side of Mcßice's cheek and out under th» lower ...

For the Californian Mr. Editor : —On reading znmvfeic suggestions in the 11 Star" paper of last week, offered for the consideration of our fellow townsmen, I am induced to offer the foilowing, especially for tiie consideration of that talented individual who signs himself ;&lt; A Voter," and for tbe good people of the town in general. There is certainly something in tfce atmosphere that we inhale, or the food that wo eat in San Francsico, which causes some of i's inhabitants to generate largo quantities ofgass. And as yet there has been discover, ed but two modes of escapement — the Town Council, and the public prints. Now sir. I claim to be a citizen of San Francisr am no doubt one of the many who have fora considerable length of time, been lying in a dormant state in regard to the politics of the town. And it was wilhi great deal of pleasure that I perused some few re mart* (by •• Cato") in your last issue: it is the only evidence that I have yet seen that we citizens have...

Fi-om the .Vr?r York Herald. THE ISTHMUS OF TEHUANTEPEC. [Newspaper Article] — Californian — 19 January 1848
Fi-om the .Vr?r York Herald. THE ISTHMUS OF TEHUANTEPEC. The annexed discription of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec we have extracted from a communication to the .Vftr Orleans Picayune :—: — About midway betwixt Vera Cruz and Tabasco is a point at which the two oceans approximate so nearly to each other that the Isthmus is only about 120 miles in breadth. This is the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, and is one of the point? at which it has been ascertained to be practicable to unite them by means of a ship canal. Shoald the progress of our arms result in the annexation of the State of Vera Cruz in its entire extent to the conquered territory, we should be in possession of that portion of the Isthmus whose waters flow into the Gulf of Mexico, and the remaining portion, or that situated on the Pacific declivity could be taken possession of by a very small force, the country being too sparely inhabited to afford much material for resistance. Then should ■ treaty of peace establish us in quiet posses...
