On thu 1 Jth of November. as you already know, I lift the lan<l of my birth to seek la a new and wild country, now t'rlondj, now associations, and a new mode of life. During the llr?t fuur days ot? our voyage, we had weather, which, fir severity, was not equalled by the most boisterous weather met with at Cape Horn. The splendid description of a storm at sea, given in the novel of the ' Pilot,'- would fall short of doing justice to the terrifie storui which we witnessed when near New York. There were belonging to the regiment on board the ' Brutus,'' SI persons. Of this number, about 30 suffered considerable from sea sickness. Think heaven, I entirely esoaped this peculiarly distressing lliucBS. which cannot be better described than by Imagining by the side of the bunk In which you try hard to sleep, an angel from heaven and a demon from the lower regions. Imagine alto, that they both ofTered to convey you to their respective regions. At this offer you would endeavor to turn in your " pent up Utica," and most beseechingly implore him that oould give y<>? the most speedy relief to oonvey you, body and soul, to his region, bu ft heaven or . On the fifth (lay the storm broke away, and the good and sprlghtlv little rliip Brutus moved gallantly through the " deep blue sea." When we were off Cape Horn it was summer; but such a summer I never a#ain with to experience. As usual, it blew a continuous gale. The weather was as oold as " (Greenland's icy mountains;" the ship kept tossing, tumbling and pitching like a thing bewitched, without lutermission for the space of 24 days,in endeavoring to make a distance,which with a fair wind, oould be made in 24 hours. During the whole voyage, had very llttln sickness after the first few days, and although for sonix time monotony reignod supreme in our uiiuiature world, we endeavored by various methods to " drive dull care away.'1 Continuous head winds made us a long passage. On the 17th ot April we arrived In the harbor of Sau h'ranclsoo. On the 18th we went ashore, making the passage in Ave months and seven dnys. The mouth of the bay of ban Francisco lies in latitude 37 68. The water on the bar is 8 fathoms at low tide. The harbor is an arm of the sea, extruding some 40 miles inland, shut in by hljh and precipitous hanks. The entrance from the ccoan is by an op'iiiiig about one mile in width, through rock formed wulls, near 200 ftet in height. Krom the points forming the entrance the sea gradually expands to some 8 or 10 miles in extent from North to South, and 12 from Kast to West At the extreme eastern portion of the vast basin thus formed, its shores again olose abruptly, contracting so as to leave a pass of about two miles m width, which forms the entrance to a second buy of still larger dimensions. Krom this gorge the high rocky bauks again open for ten miles, when they oiose to the width of about one^mile, which forms the entrauce to a third bay, more spacious than either the first or second, extending 12 miles from East to West and l'> from North to South, affording the sufust ancftorage. i nave Di-?n iu.ou^ii inu different bays, and a more will and beautiful sight ue.ver greeted the eyes of mortal. Han Francisco, or the settlement until lately called Yerba liuena, (in Spanish meaning good herb) In situated cIoho on the shore, and cun-nntu of about fitly houses, built principally of a timber culled re l wood aud adobe, (mud and grasd, sun driod ) The place Ir indeed rapidly Increasing, thirty houses having been built within the past two months There are sevwn store* for the sale of miscellaneous articles.

During my stay at Han KraucUco 1 visited the settlements nailed the .tlissiou and th'?

The land ia tue vicinity of San Francisco for farmiog purposes is not worth one cent per acre. At this place 1 met an old acquaintance of yours and lay own, no less a personage than Pat , who had run away (row a wLale ship ilr was confined in the government hospital by frosen feet, lie bad volunteered to go to the California mountains to relieve emigrants who were perishing froiu the want of tood. (1 will alltido to this hereafter ) A very alfenting meeting took plsce between him and bis brother John, wiio was attached to compiuy O, of this regiment John had been confined for nearly two mouths ou board the Brutu*, with a severe attack ot chronic bronchitis and liver complaint, and was in a very weak aud dangerous statu when tukeu ashore. He was immediately tuk1 n to the hospital, and placed upon a soldier's couch ? usually a pine board?without being perceived by Pat After he had been placed upon hii bed, Pat enquired. Who was the patient brought in'!" Hu was told tiiat it was a young mau from New York. ' What's his name?" asked Pat; " replied the hospital steward At the sound of his own uamo. Pat leaned on his elbow, and asked, " Do you know his trade?" The words had scarcely escaped his lips, when he turned his eyes towards the new patient, aud beheld his urothrr "John!'' exclaiiaud Pat. "Fat."' fainily muttered John They could not grasp each other's hands, but leaning upon their elbows, looked at eauh other in mute astonishment It wout) he useless to attempt to depict their joyous though almost skeleton faced. t>-' Old Dave Martin," as he wss familiarly called, and with whom you were acquainted,breathed his last in San Krancheo bay the sucond nixht tho ship lay in port. He came out as officer's cook, but not one day out of the five months' voyage was he able to even attempt the duties for which he had engaged. I remained at San Kraucisco, where I enjoyed mvself. tor tiro weeks, when 1 left to rejoin my uompauy at Sonoma, GO mile* distant. Sonoma Ik a beautiful little valley, tbe settlement containing about 3."> houses, the laud fertile, weather Dearly always pleasant, and tbe town very rapidly increasing; taken altogether, it U one of the inoit desirable places in tbe whole country I was received by my company in a warm and really friendly manner, aud by my old friends 1 was saluted with " Vou d?d foci! uid'ut you know better than to come to this Ood-fortaken country?"

The man, ? however, who can produce an invention that will enable ^ Scott Anil Taj lor to dispense with their long trains of u escort* and baggage wu{onn, will contribute more large- t ly than tho appointment of a Lieutenant Oeneral to the * vigorous prosecution of the war. , Such a discovery has beon made?such an invention has been submitted to Secretary Marcy, of which w? have the 1 honor to present the lollowingreport Col. llenton, Col. . UonipUan, and Col. Fremont, all three belong to Missouri; t but that Is not all. A pluln country farmer, in that State, 1 during the late tlno harvest, had employed a large number | of inen to reap his five hundro,) acres of wheat, equal to I a crop of ten thousand bushels. As usual, a largo iiuin- < ber ot harvesters required u vast amount of provisions, I and their dinner, from day to day, was a sort of barbe- < cue, prepared and celebrated iu the woods, thus making a dolly jubilee, or harvest homo of tli>? labors of tbe sea- l sou; a sort of patriarchal manifestation of thanks to the ' Ureal (iiver of the fruits of tho earth and the blessings of Hoaven; a spontaneous expression of gratitude appropriate to the beuifloenoe of a wise 1'rovidenoe, who dei^us, from year to year, to bless our beloved country with a surplus of the good things of the earth. Well, on one day the harvesters of this old farmer had their beef broiled barbecue fashion?the next day it was fried, roasted and stewed?and the next, for a change, three fit beeves, such as aro only raisod on the fat lands of Missouri, wera boiled, with a corresponding proportion of hoe cakes baked in the ashes, Tuckahoe stylo, and a large hogshead of whiskey toddy, in the shade of tho spring?a largo spring, bubbling up like a river from the bovwls of the earth, supposed to bo ono of tho itrxuni^ :rom the Rocky Mountains, and which, sinking iu in - -uds of the great American desert or prairie,and puroul: a subterraneous passage, here rise out from tbe earth, oool, copious, refreshing, and pellucid. It so happened, tbat on the day tbe three fat beeves were to be boiled, that a dozen sugar kettles went employed, of tbe lurgest size, and large were the expectations of tbo harvest men of the ricli soup and hoe-cakes luey would have for the dinner that day. Col. Beuton and Col Doniphan visited the field, and the grove where the pots were boiling, and after inspecting the operations of the oooks, and after admiring tho curious tabic in the wood- which was a hundred yards long, made of raw hides, hairy side up, und so arranged, that tho tails bung down on each side of the table like tassels, with the head of the table ornamented with the shaggy sk ns of four buffaloes, the borna supporting a large earthen bowl for holding tbo soup; after inspecting all these arrangements for the dinner, Col. Iientou and Col. Nonlphan passed over to th? harvest field, of a hundred acres, in which some two hundred men and boys were employed. There under tbe shade of a group of great hickory trees, (called by tbu V ankees white walnut ) Col Ueuton andCol. Doniphan were each compelled loamukea speech. Then toasts were exchanged, and tbe sport was kept up until the long slanting ray* of the sun reminded tbe farmer aud bis people that the day had slipped through their Anger* but the dinnor was in waiting, so they repaired farmer and workmen, and their visiters to tho grove. Sad was tbo scone. Complete was tbe disappointment thero Tbe cooks had been tryiug tbe hogshead of toddy, and they were all asleep at the spring. Tbe tires bmi burnt out uuder the kettles?the coup, by long boiling, had been reduced to the consistency uf jolly, about threu kmIIoun in each kettle, cooking lUe so much nine, in wiilcii tliu Loom wuru bleact.ed from tho exoersivc heat of thu tlUldi), HO loUg lie jit up. The bouos were taken out, and the soup, on exposnro, hardened rapidly to the consistency of caoutchouc or IndU rubber Hut it wiui not to bo lout. It wan cut up into fragment* of tlio site of a cake of shaving soap, and divided uuoog tho hands. With a plenty of witter and whiskey, on# of these oaken was f mud equivalent to a K'J 'd diunur. '1 he couipnay dissolved, but ihere was one man who had made a discovery, which was, and Is, that this concentrated quintenhuuo? of beef, thus prepared, would be the very tning for the army In Mexico Some days after, on consultation with Col. Denton, thin discoverer of the great ultimatum of the extract of Deef, scut on a specimen by mail to (Juartermiuler Gen Oibsou, at Washington, franked by the distinguished Senator, as "Slid sp." (aoliditled soup,) embracing propositions to supply the army with tho article, and representing one mule could carry as much of this quintessence, as would be equivalent to two wagonloads of the raw material of corned beef; and that with the addition of vegetables, and milk and bread, it would be (Uu rurj thing?the great desideratuin In croaslng the desert of Ent-arnaolou. Wo understand that the surgical bureaus, army sad navy, hat* been experimenting for a week or so upon this "fstrait Je Intuf," and that a wag of an officer, who was requested to try it, and giyo in his opinion, h?k rendered iu his'eport to the army bureau. In the following doggerel*: ? ' My Dk*a Doctor? Your extract I've holled. Rut in making good soup I've been totally foiled? If my opinion you value, I think,if you take Home leather Hud fclue, better soup you will mako; Hut. If Hclonoe, Dear Doctor, int-ists it will do, 1 am bound to defer, and to say the same tuo, Ami leave out all about The leather and glue." Judgiug from this report, tho experiment has fulled ; but we all know that Captain Koss. In one of his voyages toward tho North Polo, did carry with him a large supply of this very extract of beef, au 1 that it answered the purpose, among the icebergs, of sustaining his men through a long winter. But the climate of Mexico is different, from that of the lee bergs arrund the North 1'ole, and tresh beef or salt junk will continue to be amoug the principal iugredleuts of the army rations. We submit our statement of the interesting circumstances, euuing In this discovery, without comment ; adding only this closing remark, that we defy Father Ritchie to deny the validity or reuso'iablenees of the 1 exposition. THE DOCTOK. 1 Bostoi, August ?, 1847. ' Tht Politici in Maiiachuittts. In addition to making nominations for Htate oflloera. our whig and democratic conventions aro to choose two " delegates at largo" each to their respective natioua1 conventions. This fact ought to give a more than ordl nary degree of Interest to the business of malting up tho State conventions ; but, ho far at lea.?t an concerns the democracy, thsre Is quite as much apathy on the presidential election, as there Is respecting n.ero local affairs. No man appears te care a straw about the matter. This is the more remarkable, when wo tuko into accouut the important point that Mr. Polk has frankly avowed that he shall not be a candidate for re-eloetlon, thus len.ving the party at liberty to select some now candidate without referenoe to himself j and si ill more remarl.a' le Is It, when we call to mind how great wax the excite;- <nt on this very subject four years ago.

I think It does ; for whatever reasons there may be for not looking for success In this State on the part of thu democrats, their interest In national mattere cannot thereby be affuoted. Their vote in a national convention could uot lie greater were they In the ascendant here, than It will be with their existing beggarly minority. Their ludirect Influence would bo greater, but not to nuj marvellous extent, were they a successful, and uot a thoroughly routed party at homo. Their Interest in tl choice of a President ought to be ns great, (iti fnet greater) now that they are hopelessly struck down here, is it would be were th> y possessed of power ; for In the national ascendancy of the party must they look for that compensation demanded by their want of local power.

As soon as JrJge liayly get through with his business in court, which was betweeojtunset and dark, ho left the court-house, walked over to the tavern, stopped just In front of the hotel, when h? was taken off a few feet by a client, and engaged in conversation with him.

The wound is not considered n dangerous one.
