TH NO. 5302. Additional Intelligence from California? The Gold Mine*, Ac. We have received, overland, the Califomian, published at San Francisco, ot the 14th of August. Annexed are several interesting extracts from ita olnmas. TIIK OOI.D REGION. It waa our Intention to present onr reader* with a description of the extensive gold, silver and iron mines, recently discovered in the Sierra Nevada, to??th.tr with some other important item*, for the good of the people, but we are compelled to defer It for a future umber. Our prices current, many valuable communications, our marine journal and other important matters, have also been crowded out But to enable our dia ant readers to draw pome idea of the extent of the gold mine, we will conline our remarks to a few facts. The country, from the Ajuba to the San Joaquin riieri, a distance of about 120 miles, and from the base tf wards the summit of the mountains, as far as Snow Hill, about 7U milei, has been explored, and gold found cn every part. There are now probaMy 3000 people, Including Indians, engaged collecting gold. The amount collected by each man who works. ranges from $10 to $360 perdHy. The publisher of this oaper, while n a tour aione to the mining district, collected, with the aid of a shovel, pick and tin pan, about 2 J laches In diameter, from $44 to $128 a day?averaging $100. The gross amount collected will probably oxceed $600.COfc, of which amount our merchants have received buct $ .'." 0,100 worth tor goods sold; all within th* hort space of eight weeks. The largest piece of gold known to be found weighed four pounds. Labor has ever been high in California, hut previous to the tiiicovtry of the vlucerv gold, the ratts ranged from $1 to $3 per day. Since that epoch common labor cannot be obtained. and if to be bad for no less price than 50 cents per hour, and that the most common. (arpentt-rs and other mechanics have been offered $lf> a day. but it has been flatly refused. Many of our enterprising citizens were largely engaged in building, and others wish to commence on dwellings, warehouses aid the like, but all have had to suspend f?r the lack of that all important class of oommunity, tbe working men. K. P. Barnett and Jacob N Me tiger, who arrived ktre from Oregon on the 20th May last, in the schooner Mary Ann, to look at California, with an eye to its agricultural prospects, after remaining a few d-tys at this place, repaired to the gold region. Th^y have sitce returned, and it is their intention to go back to O-regon, for their families, in the brig Henry, which vessel will aail in a fewdays. They take back with th?m th? run nit ?nm nf ilQRnJn ,.ol^ (on .. i th> y collected in the short space of 22 days. This mutt certainly be more encouraging than hard labor at $15 per month, payable in shinplaaters and Oregon iciip. worth 60 cents to the dollar. The construction of a railroad from Suttersville, on the Sacramento, to the gold, silver and iron mines of the Sierra Neveda, would be of the utmost importance to California, and those interested In transporting provisions and other merchandl/.e to the mining district, who take in return Iron and lumber, of which there is t sufficient ef the first quality to supply all the markets oi the 1'Acific The route is a practicable one. aod but lit tie excavation will be necessary. The rat* sof transportation of merchandize now charged by wagons are $5 per ICO ponnds to the lower mines?a distance of 20 miles, and $10 per 100 to the upper mines? 40 miles. T#o liorres can draw 1.6C0 ponnds on any partof the road.? I'ntil a road of this kinl u oonntructed, the extensive pineries in the California mountains, which nre equal to any in the world, must remain in their present useless condition. We particularly invite enterprising capitalists to ?isit Alta California. The Califurnian again appears before its patrons this Biorning, us it will continue to do occasionally in these " golden times," during the temporary suspen ion of business. As soon as a re-action takes place, and butine?6 resumes its wonted channels, and our thoroughfares again wear their usual business-like and bustling appearance, we wll! issue the paper regularly, as heretofore. We understand from persona who have lately arrived herefrom the gold region, that the sickly season has set in, and the gold hunters are in consequence, leaving in great numbers. The sickness does not operate on each individual in the same manner; but Is in all cases very seven*, and sometimes fatal. It is currently reported that three of our citizens have died at the mines, but we hope it may prove untrue, 1 and therefore do not give names. But it ought not to be concealed that much slokness prevails there. Gold ! Gold ! ! Gold !! !?Messrs Dickson fe Hay , re purchasers of Sacramento Gold. A liberal prioe given BEE HIVE.

Our trip after lcavirg your rUy. by wav of Pueblo , San Jofe and thf San Joaquin river, we found very grtable.

The country from the S'an Joaquin river to this place, is rich beyond j comparison, and will admit Of a dcn?e population W? found the fort a minature Manchester, a young , Lowell Tfce blacksmith's hammer, the tinner, the carpenter and the weaver's shuttle plying by the ingenuity of Indians, at which place there are several hundred in the employ of ('apt J A. Sutter. I was much pleased with a walk in the large and beautiful garden attached to the fort. It contains about eight or ten acres, laid out with great taste, under the supervision of a young Swiss. Among the fruit trees I noticed the , almond, fig. olive, pear, apple, and peach. The grape Tines are in the highest state of cultivation, and for I epetables I would refer you to n seedman's catalouge. | About three miles from the fort, on the east bank of ??i? KtRftimento. the town of Suttersvllle is laid out. The location is one of the beet in the country, situated in tfc? largest and most fertile district in California, and being tbe depot for tbe extensive gold, silver, platlna, quicksilver and Iron mine*. A hotel is noi? buildleft for th? accommodation of the travelling public, who nrc now obliged to Impose on tbe kind hospitalities cf Capt. Sulttr. A party cf men who have been exploring a route to cross th? Sierra Noveda mountains bare .just returned, and report that they have found a good wagon road on the declivity ridge between th* American f< rk and the McCnsHamy rivers. the distance beit g much less than by the old route. This rond will pa a through the gold district, and enter the valley near the American fork. A ferry la to be established at Suttcrsvllle, on the Sacramento, and the road aoross the lularie improved orn. which will aborten the distance from thla place to Sonoma and jour city about CO mllea. Alter leaving the fort we passed up on the south bctik of the American fork, about twelve ailM. Thla ia a beautiful river, about three fathoma deep, the watt r Icing very cold and clear; and after leaving the r?v? r we f acred through a country rolling and timbered wth '?k We toon commenced ascending the hills at the biee ol the areit Sierra Nevada, whloh are thickly ret ?it,h oak and pine timber, and anon arrived at a frr.ii'' rivulet. One of our party dipped up a ctipfull ot rand from the bed of the creek, washed It, aad found five pieces of geld. This was our first attempt at gold digging. About dark we arrivel at the saw-mill of Cant Sutter, having rode over gold, allver, platlnaand Iron mines, some twenty or thirty miles. The past three days I have spent In exploring the mountains In this district, and conversing with many men who have b*en at work here for some weeks past. Should I attempt to relate to yeu all that I have seen, and have been told, concerning the extent and productions of the mines, 1 am feaiful your readers would think me oxaggerating too much; therefore, I will keep within bounds. I could All your lolunns with tbe most astonishing tales concerning the mines here, far excelling the Arahlan Nights, and all true to the letter. As near as I can arcertaln. there are now about 2,000 persons engaged, and the roads leading to the mines are thronged with people and wagons. The implements used are shovels. picks, tin pans, wooden bowls cd Indun baskets. From one to nine ounces af pure virgin gold per day Is gathered by every man who performs the r? qnlslte labor The mountains have been explored for ab^ut forty miles, and gold has been found In great aVundance in almost every part of them.

Two men bare just arrived for provisions from the Adjuba river, who state that they have worked five days, and gathered $950 in gold, the largest piece weighing nearly one ounce. Tbey report the quantity on that river to be immense, and in mush larger pieces than that taken in other parts. Sonoma, Aug. 6,1848. The mining fever is raging here, as well as elsewhere. Not a mechanic or laboring man can be obtained in town, and most of our male citizens have --gone up" to the Sierra Nevada, and are now enjoying '-golden moments." Spades, shovels, pick axes, hoes, bottles, | vials, muff-bcxes, brass tubes, earthen jars, and even barrels, have been put in requisition, and have also abruptly left town. 1 bave heard from one of our citizens who has been at the Gold Placero a few weeks, and he had collected $1 6C0 worth of the "root of evil," and wai still averaging $100 per day. Another gent, wife, and boy collected $SOO worth in one day. Another still, who shut up his hotel here some live or six weeks sinoe, hu returned with $^.'200 in pure virgin gold, oolleoced by his own exertions, with no other aid than a spade, plok aud Indian basket. Three new and valuable lead mines have recently teen discovered iu this vicinity, and one of our citizens. V r. John Bowles, of Galena, 111?a gent, who has been reported by the Boston press as having beau icurdered by the Indians, on the Southern route to Origon. from the State* ? informed me that the ore would yield DO per cent . and that it vai his intention to erect, as soon as practicable, six large smelting furnaces. The Colonnade Theatre, at this place, ba4 closed fir the reason ; it was well attended, however, from the time the Thespians made their debut till tbey made their exit. The "Golden Farmer." the "Omnibus," and a Russian comedy called: "Keodora,'' (translated from the German of Kotzebue. by Mr. K. Linz. of Sonoma ) were their last attraction*. 1 he military company under command of Capt. J. K.

Company C. has been stationed with us more than a year, and muoh praise is due its members, not only for the military and soldierlike manner in which they have acquitted themselves ax a corps, but for their gentlemanly and orderly deportment individually and collectively. We regret to jart with them, and cannot let them go without expressicg a hope that when peao-t shall have been declared, their regiment dinbanded, and the'.r country no longer needs their services, they may have fallen sufficiently in leve with our healthy climate and our beautiful valley to come back and settle.

However skeptical any man may have been, we defy bim to doubt, tbat if the quantity of each specimens as there be as great as has been represented, tlie value of tbe gold in I alifrrnia must be greater than has been bitb< rto discovi red in tbe old or new continent; and gr?ata>> may bt the emigration to this new K1 Dorado, tbe fiugal and industrious will be amply repaid for their enterprise and toll.

The " old man," who hu been anxiously expeoted 1 for several day*, arrived yesterday, gladdening the ; heart* of hi* friend*, who thus, without the expense of i a journey to Baton Rouge, are afforded the opportu- | nity of testifying, personally, their unbounded adwU ration and regard. A distinguished leader of the ! Taylor party, most strangely, Lappened at the wharf ; the moment the General landed, and escorted him to his lodgings. Report says this leader had taken up bis quarters (several hour* previously, on the levee, where it wa* supposed the old ohief would land. It is something to be seen arm in-arm with a President elect. Well, a* he proceeded towcrds the St. Charles his humbler supporter* swelled the crswd, and fairly made tbe earth quake with their vociferations of welcome. After he bad retired to hi* room, even a few minutes of quiet were not allowed him, and he was drawn forth tfcat he might be seen of men. In witnesting tbe popular demonstrations that have every where greeted General Taylor since be landed ou his native soil, one year ago, no one can dt<ubt the strong and ecduring liold he has upon the hearts of bis countrymen. The writer witnessed his reception here, on the 3d of December last, when evi-ry man, woman, and child, in this great city, not confined to the bed of sickness, was abroad to welcome him. Tears, on that dav ? tears o( joy, tbat be was again among them ?of gratitude for bis great cervicts to his country, fell' from eyes unused i to weep."

And from tbat moment to thH present, through an entire twelvtmonth. the love and di-votion of the people have been deepening andwidening for this good and great man We can scarcely point to an instance in our history where tbe adoiirut.ion excited by illustrious deeds, has been so blended with personal love and regard fur tbe man who aohicved theoi. Gen. Taylor, unlike many of the renowned heroes whom a vast majority of the people only read\)f. but seldom see, 1 Is, in their eye*, no abstraction. He is a man like themselves, interested in all that concerns humanity. Not superior to the performance of the homely duties demanded of tbe good neighbor and the taithful friend, 1 they view him as be wpuld be viewed?an honest oiti- ' zee. having a joint and equal interest with themselves in the glory and prosperity of the oountry. And they , are right. There is no functionary in the land, of , whatever rank, civil or military, who is more approach able than CJen Taylor. A civil request. If not who'ly > improper in its nature, ever receive* from him due ' consideration ar.d a civil reply. When at the head of i an army in the field, the humblest, with or without a crttinipBion, was freely admitted, hit) request atten- ] tively heard, and a reply, if unfavorable to the applicant's wit-he*. made satisfactory by the courte-y with ) which it was delivered. The General is now Pr??ident t elect of this great republic.

Cabinets will be prepared for him without cumber. The appointment of this man, and there- t, moral of that, are already opeDly spoken of, and he trill be annoyed with petitions for ''spoils," long before t, they come into his bands. * How exceedingly uncomforfortable, at times, must bo u Ihe condition of a distinguished public man! Kvery motion watched-every word reported - every step fol- ? owed ?General Taylor, henceforth, to his dying day. mutt suffer these trials. Wherever he movus he must ? t>e an object of great interest to the people he has p crved so well, and who have bestowed upon him tlu-lr iighest reward. From his known charaeter and tastes. t is nst doubted that often in the next four years, he _ rould gladly lay down his honors for a while, to be iappy in the obscurity of hit coachman or gardener, ?i who call not the multitude "master." ,. I New Orleans, Nct. 30, IMS. Gea. Taylor, President elect of thi* great republic ar ived here on Monday evening, and has his head-quarers at the 6t.

( I learn te has, within a day or two, purchased j mother large sugar estate. He has sent on to Wash- j * 'ngton the resignation of his military oommand, . and has ordered, from our most fashionable tailor, i two lulls of French black, and will not, after this * visit, chow in bis dress any of the pomp and gl?ry , ' which he has so well earned in Mexico. The Gene- . ' ral tries to be all things to all men; but there la I evidently to be seen that he begins to look upon him- 1 self with the dignity and height of fortune, that he | I has a world at command, ana that he intends to do ; 1 pretty much as he d-d pleases ; and as he has now * no aids with or about kirn, he looks and acts as if be 1 intended to do his own business, independent of the F many suggestions as to what he should do; and 1 cur- ' tainly am of opinion that the whigs of New Orleans ' are degrading themselves in the estimation of Pre.'i- r dent Taylor, by commencing thus eatly in presenting f themselves for office ; and to judge from his remarks i lo day, which were made at table, you need not unti- ' cipate such a turning out and putting in offlne as the ? whigs expect. The General is of opiuion that faith- 1 fulness, competency and responsibility are very important requisites in men. and he thinks the a<imi- ( nis'iinlion of this government should be so oonducted that political feeling should be laid aside; and that ' men of worth can be found in both partieu who will : 1 unite with him in doiag what is right aad proper.
