Sir : In this far famed Western city we have our 8ay as well as in those numerous towns and cities that are dotted about your York State. 'Tis true we , have no theatres, therefore, no saloons. VVehave no Bishop's Church lectures, nor four days meetings, ergo, we have no crazy fanatics. No elections, nor political mobs,no doctors nor much sickness; no sur. geons, nor those with amputated hmbs; no lawyers, therefore no court-houses nor prisons. Tisbutastep from one to the other. We have no she rills nor con- j stables, marshals nor tipstaffs; of course, no writs ; nor replecation, no executions nor sacrifices of pro- \ l*rty. Cock-fighting has gone by ; bull and bear 1 tights have hud their days, and are like things that are not. We have neither the yellow fever nor the ' black vomit; no fevers and agues, as those of the ; north term it, nor agues und fevers as the south have it. We have neither apothecary nor confectionary stores; ergo, no pale faces nor bad teeth?no bridges, yet we ride ; no wharf, yet we sail; no dancing masters, yet we dance : no air balloons, nor corpo rated companies^ therefore, we experience no great falls nor magnificent bankruptcies. We have no b inks nor paper money, yet we pay our debts and flourish; nomail-coacnes, steamboats,nor railroads, yet we communicate one with another, without the aid of post offices or postmaaters ; we have no rain in the summer, norsnow in the winter, yet the earth brings forth and gladdens our hearts. We huve, finally, no medicines nor hospitals, yet many a mo ther can show a six year old child, with four or five younger brothers and sisters gamboling about her. If thut will not count for any thine, we can show you families o' eight to ten, the oldest not in their teens ; and I have seen a lady enjoying a bull of ten hours duration, who had left at home a child of fifteen days old. Ill the nmne of wonder, methinks I hear you exclaim, if you have none of these, what have youl how do you extst and h ive your being 1 Not so fa--t, but "pnro a pwo," and I'll tell you. Theatres we have none, for want of actors; Bishops nor four days meeting, hut a Sunday's mass for those who choose to hear it; elections none?government takes that trouble off" the people ; doctors, lawyers or she riffs cannot flourish here, because no one will pay them?the alcaldes do all the law business, or none it all, as they please; no banks or paper money, having silver dollars in their place, which is a pret ty good substitute, let your politicians say what they pleuse. No coaches, steamboats, nor railroads?a dozen horses will c.irry a man 140 miles in a day, if you will pay him for it. II his horse fails on the road, the rider, with his leather lasso, "borrows" another, and 'euves him some leagues ahead, where he " borrows" another that's running at large. Bi ? ing in a hurry, lie has no time to look for the owner or nis house?sutficent for him is the horse. When lassed, he shifts the saddle, and away he goes. With his lasso and knife, he can hlways obtain a good horse and a fat calf, and the owner will never be the wiser or richer for it. We sow but little, und spin less. Factories we have none ; China sends us silks and satins; New England sends us domestics?and Solomon, in all his glory, was not more happy than a Californian. He sinus and he dances?every man. woman and child can waltz like a German; and every other one is a proficient with some musical instrument?equally at home with a guitar in his ] hand or a lasso?whether treading the mazy steps of a fandango, with his scores of cousins, or with his fleet horse following thousands of wild cattle on the plain. He fears neither heut nor cold?his never failing poncho hanging over his shoulders to protect him from both, he enjoys the day, and cares not for the morrow?earns a dollar wken lie needs it, but will not work for a doubloon when his present wants are supplied. The most unaccountable being to him is the foreigner, who is ever grasping for a little more, to lay up for?he knows not who. Monterey, California, Sept. 1844. Sir:?It is now some two years since I forwarded to your office un account of the arrivals of vessels in this port for one year, also a sheet of matters in ge neral and nothing in particular. From u Boston pa per I saw a part of the latter credited to the Herald, theiefore I suppose you received it; since that time I have not written to you for two ruasons: first, be cause I did not feel in the humor; second, because I have had no line direct from you on the subjecti of course 1 cannot say whether my letters to you are worth the postage. Now as there is many " a slip between the cup and the lip," it follows, that there is more between your city and mine, as a letter must be handed twenty times from ship to stage, ere it reaches its destination, and be sixty to one hundred days on the road and seal. In this case you may have written and 1 not have received; taking this into considera tion and being again in the humor, I pen another sheet for your iwruaal. As I write merely because I choose to, I shall write merely as I please to. Y'ou will receive the let ters, not "post paid" as far as the United States postage is concerned, and I shall pay the Mexican postage, which is double what yours was a year ago. 1 presume, by this time, Congress has been wise enough to reduce the postage; the wisdom of the Mexican Congress in this respect, in all proba bility will run in a counter struin. If its happy to be i ignorant and its folly to be wise, were it not for let ! ters and mail bags, the follies and fancies of each ; city or town, would be confined to its own narrow ! limits, and the wheels of government would only revolve round the Congress house, and not be ob i structed by tens of thousands of editors and editor s correspondents, one halt of whom spend their time I in macadamizing the road, while the others are em | ployed in corduroying it. 'Tia true each little big man I would not be known out of his own district, but [ then his envy would not be touched by hearing of the praise of his brethren at a distance. Yours, 1'aisano. Monterey, California, Sept. 1844. Sin :?It is now six months since we heard from the States ; in general we have news six or eight times a year; this time we are all in the dark now;

the world wags. We, of course, lose the sweet anxi ety month by month, of knowing who's ahead in the lour years race for the White House: and when we do receive our papers, we shull find the President nominated, voted for and fairly in the chair, with out any trouble of guessing on the subject. In the meantime, we jog on waiting (not patiently) but monthly for the mail,and wonder how goes on John Tyler, Victoria, Louis Philippe, Emperor of all the Kussias, the Father of ull the Chinese, the Queens of Spain and Portugal, and the rest of the flolks at ihe other end of the world ; when bang comes in the Eastern and Western mail, and at one sitting, (not a short one, I assure you) we hear all about the six above mentioned ladies and gentlemen ; and read their several yearly seeches, and what they said to their sublets, and what they said of their neighbor?, and all their anticipations which might hereafter nappen, we know did or did not happen We read of the whole fece of the globe at once:each nation therefoie sinks in our nnglity views of tningf as a state ol the smallest class; kings and queens appeared but common people chatting of each other; we read Unit the lad ini?lity convention of such h nation would overturn all around it; in the next paper we find it was growing more and more in its trenienduous power, and would certainly carry all before it; before we rise we find another moun tain of the fable; then we hear of the last new and splendid steamboat ready in Liverpool lor sailing, then site is lost, and hundreds are in mourning foi their departed friends. When "lo," we find in ano ther paper that she is again in the Liverpool docks, not lost, (as advertised) but safely returned, und h gold medal or pitcher presented to the Captain for outriding the greatest gale in ihe greatest rain,since that of tiie 40 days ana 40 nights' lain 1 have never seen but half of that at one falling in California, though travellers do say that, in the far-famed Ore gon, that would [Kiss for a shower. Matters and things are great or small in this world, according to what part of the world you find them?'tis said there is but one step between the sublime nnd the redicu lous. I have found them one and the same thing? a sublime dandy of your city or nnne, would find himself rather out of order, was he to change his of promenade. Should a Rocky Mountain lady visit New York, her nose ornaments would be out of place; and a lady among the rocks might find her ear ornaments not yet in fashion. Were I to choose between the foot or the waist of a fair one, being brought to the smallest conceivable span, I might vote for the foot, and find you of the other party. So we go. Fashion is but fancy, and fancy is but?let echo answer. In writing so much relative to matters and things, I have touched more on the former than on the lat ter?but you shall see what you shall see, nextnmil. Yours, Paisano. California, Lec. 1844. Sir Although we are at the farthest, being some few degfrees of longitude west from any town, city, or correspondent you have, or ran have, yet we are actually where we can hear from you, and see at times our beautiful flag of stars and stripes,and blest be the lady who made so apt an allusion to the same on board ills unfortunate Princeton. A few weeks past there arrived within our waters a sloon of war; us we had long been without news from home, and wanted to know, among other thing*, it the great Santa Anna was still declaring war against us?whether the United States had ta ken Texas, or Santa Anna had added the United State* nnd Texus to Mexico?and some Mexicans suppose he can do so whenever he chooses to?I was very anxious to obtain some newspapers. The Captain said there was none, nor any news; an hour after, an officer said there was no news or paper worth reading. The next day 1 found that an old Herald had, via Vera Cruz, Mexico, San Bias, Ma zatlan, and Sandwich Islands, found its way to Cali fornia, in the ship. But of what use was a paper.not worth reuding, and an old one to boot. "Hut," says an oliicer,"ola as it is,it's the newest one we've got, and the only one we brought." ".Well, here goes," says I;"who's got it 1" Lieut. A. kad lent it to I >r. B., who loaned it to Purser C.; Purser C. did not know what had become of it, supposing it not worth keep ing. So supposed not I: so nere goes again. In two days I found it had gone on board the Hag ship, then also at anchor here. On the third day, on meeting the officers, I began my enquiries and researches again: one had seen it 011 board, but did not read it, and could not tell where it was; another had looked at it only ; unother hud not done that much, that is, of uny consequence; when at last I found that the Captain of Marines ac tually had the actual Herald, and would bring it to me next day ; the next day came, of caurse, and so did the Cuptain of Marines, and handed me your paper, done up in another package, like a piece of lace, sayiug,"when you have done reading it, please return it, as I want it to carry to South Ariiericu." I received and opened the package, when I found the paper almost worn out by the various loans and read ing it hud gone through. I, however, picked out in columns, yet unworn, that Van Buren had retired, and that Clay was coming up like a race-horse?that Texas was laid over and done over?that Tyler had out-Jackson'd Andrew himself in preparing to fight a neighboring nation?that our postage was reduced, and our Tack Tars were to have no more whippings ?"and no more grog,"said one who stood by: "they cannot do without one or the other,"saysanother. lit | a day or two I returned the old ragged, worn out, good-for-nothing Herald, and it is now 011 its way to ; Callao and Valparaiso. I'll see another, one of these days, then I'll tell you all about it?so no more this time. Your, j Monterey, California, January, lS4o. S111:?Sufficient for you is the month I write in: i it matters not the day at this distance; when the ! magnetic telegraph reaches here, I '11 note the hour. ! Although we live so far from the world, and are so I diminutive a people in numbers, we follow the tur buient world in all its bearings. We have in the papers (when we get them) whole histories ot the wars that Mexico is monthly to have with some mighty nation or other ; and then we have the con firmation that the other side came to terms, and Mexico triumphed. To do our part in the great drama, we have our revolutions every few years. Some time has passed since our last, when the Cali fomians rose, with the assistance of some fifty for eigners, took possession of the government property, and dispossessed the Mexican authorities; chartered an English schooner, and sent ninetv people to Lower California, including the General and all his start. For two years they waged war against Mexi co, and all in her favor, over a country of one thou sand miles. The counter party were one day driven into a mission, surrounded by high walls, and a bombardment of two cannons and many muskets kept up forty-eight hours, when the besieged i?rty gave up,.worn down by the untired assault of the Caliibrnians. This two years' war proved not a bloodletj one, as the country people at the mission lost one man killed, and the besieged one man missing. The latter was afterwards found at home. During Uiese two years, the leaders of the rebel lion chose one of their party for Governor, and an other for General: these two and their friends named a house of deputies for the State, who con firmed the appointment of the Governor andGeneral, as being the sense of the people. The proceedings were sent to Mexico for approval, which was grant ed, and cach one had his commission forwarded by Bustameute. They then arrested the foreigners who helped to put them into office, as revolutionary char actera ; i?ut them into prison some weeks, and then confined th?m six und eight to a bar of iron in the hold of a vessel, and sent them to San Bias to be tried for their lives. After a year, Mexico chartered another vettel, and sent those who did not die through hardship or the sickness ot San Bias back to Menterey. We have now another revolution. In 1843, Santa Anna saw fit to put the Californians out of their command and give their salaries to others. The country has now a Mexican general with Mexican soldiers. The same who rose before, preferring office to grazing cattle, have again roee, carried oil all the government horses, Arc. The general imme diately published his proclama, giving the rebels eight days to return to their allegiance?after which time they were, without exception, to be judged and punished with the utmost rigor of the law. He then marched eighty miles to meet them; when met, made a treaty and returned to town ; each party showed a different cony, which in its turn was de nied by the other. The Californians are now ran ging the country, carrying off the fanners' horses and killing their cattle to sell the hides. One or two hundred foreigners, under a Swiss resident of the country, have come forward and ofiered to destroy or drive out of California the revolutionary party. The generul has gone out to join them,bold as a lion, and more extravagant of promises than ever. Some ot the foreigners who joined the Californians before, and were imprisoned and ironed for their services, have now joined the government party, and are hunting through the country their old f riends who shipped them. The Swiss commander and his forces are farmers on the river Sacrament. Most of the party are from the Western States, who, on re ceiving a citizenship here, cun obtain a title for six miles square of land, being thirty-six square miles. This class of men are hereafter, perhaps, to decide, in any Californian revolution, whether the govern ment or the people gains the ascendancy. Your Paisano. Boston* [Correspondence of tho Herald.] Boston, Jane 10, 184ft. The Sicilian frigate Urania (till remains at anchor in our harbor. I understand that she will sail about Sun day for some port in Holland, and will touch at either Plymouth or Portsmouth (England; as she passes up channel. You have published some account of the un. lucky affair of her hoisting the American flag union down, when she arrived here, and how one of her men got flogged for the mistake, but the particulars have not been printed. The Pilot, Mr. W. Fowler, informed me that the mis tako might have been made by any man, for the flag was rolled up into a bundle, and was not displayed until it reached the mast-head. The blunder occurred by hoist ing on the wrong end of the halyards. When the mistake was discovered,theCaptain of the frigate tore his hair,and although quite an orderly gentleman, he danced with rage about the decks. Tho poor signal men (two of them) weie immediately seized up, and received eighteen lathes eacli, with a coult, a species of punishment, you will lecollect, the fiiendsof C ommander Mackenzie, of > hanging celebiity, represented to be something like ' flapping a school-boy, yet these poor fellows yelled ] loud enough by the torture, to bo heard nil over our har- . hor. But the affair did not rest here. The frigate salu ted the city, and her Captain, finding that the salute was I not returned at once, interred that the insult offered our flag was the cause. Apologies were, therefore, immedi ately sent to the city government, the Commodore of the post and the I aptain of the Ohio, who were all igno rant of the supposed insult. The next day, by way of lepaiatiou, the Captain of the frigate proposed to hoist the American flag and again salute the city; and ourcity authorities, to show their sense of the compliment, or dered anaitillery company out to return the salute. The salute was fired (tho \merican flag, union up) but unfor tunately w hen the artillery men on shore attempted to return -t, they discovered that their mateli was ail con sumed. A gentleman who was smoking a long nino near the spot, tendered the uce of it, which was gladly accepted, and the salute proceeded, the gentleman afore said, between every discharge, smoking for dear life, to keep the Are alive. The firing, however, was more like iniuute guns than a well-timed salute. 1 think if our city authorities were satisfied with an apology from the , captain ofthe frigate, that ho should havo been satisfied with au apology from the signal meu. It was their duty to hoist tho flag, but it was the officer's duty who had charge of tho deck to see than the flag was hoisted pro- j perly. The savage practices of flogging, coulting, and j starting are abominable, and should he frowned down by ' every decent man everywhere. I have seen a paragraph in several oCyoitr city papers , to the effect that a duel had been fought by two southern gentlemen ( /) in the vicinity of Mount Auburn. This, 1 iissure you, is news here. The report, no doubt, origi- , nated from a scrape which took place between some me dical students who were trying their hands at body snatching, and a party of countrymen who surprised I them in the act. A small fight ensued, which terminated by all the parties sitting down, and cracking a few bot tles of fire water, which were brought from a neighbor ing inn. The affair was hushed up. and hence its non ap|>earanco in the papers. Mayor Davis is quite siok. The finest ship belonging to our port?the J. Q. Adams ?sailed for China this day. There is nothing of interest stirring here at present. Yours, in love, JOHN BL'NYAN. j Bomb or 1, Comm?'. Council. past five o'clock "th?."' JU"?

We obtain the following account of it from the Saltm Mercury .?The fire spread with great rapidity, ami seemed at one time beyond human control. "I he number of buildings, of all sorts, destroyed, is saidto be eighteen. The dwelling house, extensive store and barn of Joshua Sylvester, were destroyed. Also, the building occupied by John Hay man, painter, and K. T. Smith, tailor. Also, the building occupied by Amos Brown, wheel wright, and Collin St Co., painters. Also, the dwelling house. shoe manufactory, barn and store house of Samuel Preston. Also, Frederick Howe's blacksmith s shop. Also, a barn and another building, belonging to Proctor Perley.

Horrid Murder.?The most savage and cold blooded murder that we have heard of for some time, occurred on Saturday night last, on the Mississippi, a little above Natchez. The circumstances, as commuui rated to us.aro sufficient to chill the leeliugs of humanity. It seems, that a river trader, known as Colonel Dawson, (or Dorsev) in descending the river with the remnant ol a stock ot'nierchandi/.c, and two lemales, w hose names or characters are not known, had picked up somewhere in Arkansas, a man who so far insinuated himselj into his confidence, as to get permission to travel on the boat, and had continued either as a passenger or sort of an assis tant, until they reached the neighborhood of v* aterproot, where they were engaged in a quarrel, which ended in his being dismissed from the boat, with imprecations and threats of vengeance. This occurred some time during the day on Saturday, and on Sunday morning, about three o'clock, the boat was discovered on fire, drifting down. The negroes in the neighborhood succeeded in drawing it ashore and suppressing the fire, when a spectacle pre sented itself, too horrid to contemplate. Doriey wa< found lying in his berth, with his feet burnt off. and his head an'd face shockingly mutilated, w ith blows apparent ly dealt with an axe, aud the two girls on the opposite side in a like condition. As soon as the circumstances were known, and the direction of the supposed perpe trator w as ascertained, Mr. Carlin, with the most praise worthy disinterestedness, left the city of Nate hex in pur suit, anl with the assistance of Mr. Luinm and Mr. lii aves, citiren* of Louisiana, and through the instrumen tality ol Messrs. George and (asev..viarsh"! arid 1 eputy Marshal ol Vicksb.irg, succeeded in wrreatinR hini. and he has been taken to Louisiana to answer to the charge. Vs the mutter will have to undergo judicial investigation and in consideration of the feelings of hi. family, we forbear naming the suspected individual or giving fur ther particulars. ?
