TH NO. 5350. THE CALIFORNIA GOLO EXCITEMENT. the government despatches. Mr. Editor?I tend you tlie lollowtng" extract i a Idler from the Secretary ot War, which puts to naught all the reports (hat government hail suppressed information from California, as well as tuose respecting ms fon navnis; imeen oarreis 01 gold dust on hand, Arc. Adventurers should be cautious how tliry brink in the thousand reports put in circulation to deceive the unwary, believing and honest countiyniun. All is not gold that shines, nor is all true ubout it that has been published. I do not believe it right for tbe press to publish fict'lious letters and reports, calculated to deceive and mislead the honest and uubus|iecting. Truth and lionesty is the best policy. W. II.

Yonrs, truly, W. H , ? (. W. L. MARCY. 1NTKRESTIMO FROM CALIFORNIA. [From thv Philadelphia Bulletin, Jan. 2d ] The letter, a copy ot which we publish below, is from a gentleman now in Monterey, to his trienda in this city, who have kindly permitted us to publish it in our columus :? Montkset, California, Nov. 2, 1818. Tbera is no such thing us law bar# at present. The treaty of peace having suspended the military govern mi ni, the country is left wunour. government or lew of any kind. The New York regiment of volunteers hav tng been disbanded, nearly all of them have set off for lb* gold region. The men have stolen nearly all the horses and raddles necessary for the expedition; even the natural law ef maw and (uum being virtually abrogated by the thirst for gold. The Governor and nearly all the offleers that were stationed here have left for the plaoer. Oar regular ottlu?r remains to oommand the fort and what is left of the garrison of one company. This company numbered not long since to men; now they can only muster 10, and those are the lame, sick and lasy ef the company, who either could not or would not desert ? You can form no idea of the gold excitement here, and bow much the appearance of tilings has changed. Men who were not worth n dollar three months since, are now worth thousands. Some have dug flfteen or twenty thousand dollars worth of gold each, in three or four months. A clerk can obtain a salary of $4,000 a year from any merohant here, and at the mines a boy to attend a sfcop oommands $8 a day. Yloor has sold here at $0 a pound, and blarkets at one hundred and fifty dollars eaoh A young man in a store hers told me that he paid a short visit to the mi lbs, carrying with him a few articles amounting in value to $190. These he sold for $2 300. Gold has been lately found at a spat only 60 mil-is from Monterey At the mines, It is sold for $6 or $8 an eunee. At this place, a short time since, It brought $10 an ounoe: now it oommands $11 and $11 SO. It Is amusing to see the speculators in the precious dust running around to purchase it "How Is gold this morning?" is a common question?for it is up and down like bank stock. Unole Sam makes money here on his old clothes, and provision*. lie had eome provisions and clothing which were condemned as unnt for use, which were sold day before yesterday at auction. Old pea jackets, now moth eaten, and which oost, when entirely new, six dollars, sold for sixteen dollars Damaged flour, which seamen would not eat, was sold for fourteen dollars a barrel Yon may think the accounts of the gold discoveries ex aggerated, but I can assure you they are not. The following (act, I hesitate to tell you beoauseit seems inoredi ble; bat it is nevertheless a fact. A friend of the French Consul. the Consul has reported the same to his government,) went out some daysslnce to the gold region He (lug for four days, during which time he got forty pounds of gold. There are plenty of lumps found, weighing from one to two pounds eaeh, and it iaeaid thero la a piece ;in San Francisco weighing twenty-live pounds indeed an acquaintance assured me that he had held it in his hand Very truly yours.

Jan 25. miscellaneous incidents The following storv was told yesterday by a New I York clergyman He says that a widow lady of 1 his congregation had a sen who went to California in the {Stevenson regiment. The Indy was in rather ] straitened circumstances, and the wealthy memI hers of the church were in the habit of collecting | a pur?e to supply her with such necessaries as nrr I limit* d means forbade 1it from purch tsmg. A short time ago, the usual supply was sent to her, i* hich she icfuted to rec?tve, and gave as u reason she hud piat received a letter tioin her son in California, ef the following gratifying purport: ? "Dear Mother?ICnclosed is n draft for don't be sparing of if, for F have ,-leniy of the same soil felt." The minister said that a wish to authenticate the s'oiy led film to visit the widow, when lie found the facts to be as above stated.? Botlnn Travtl/cr. Not long sine-' we heard of a clerk in a Wall slrear bank, who lind caught the "jellow fever" so suddenly, and had it ao severely, that he was curried off by it ere lie coal,I procure a change ol raiment or take a purling leave of her who had home him, aiid who, like Rachel of old, when she j heard fbe sad news, refused to be comforted W YO JING EDITION?SATU1 Another incident occurred on the departure of the Peytona, on her long voyage. As usual, a large crowd had gathered on the pier, including several females, to bid a Icut adieu to relative*, trienda and lovers. One girl, who had probably teen seventeen summers, particularly attracted our attention. She was a beautiful c blonde, clothed in a plain though neat dress?with reniaihiibly rosy cheeKs?a lip the bee might * swoon ou, and soft dark eyes, now a lt'tte dimmed 0 by the gathering moisture of Badness. While i '' 01 hers were hurrying to aud iro, she stood on the n edge of the pier, ituzing earnestly at the vessel, , now loosing irom ner moorings. Her eyes were fixed on a Irnndsome j ouni? man, leaning over the tl taflrail, rigged out in a California dress, who wan o no less intently watching the lair girl he w is U leaving. Just as the vessel began to move in the * water, and recede from the wharf, the tears, un- ' bidden, started from their repose?tears, lu whose . dumb grief there was a powerful eloquence, filled 1 her large melting eyes, and utretclung out her hands to him. in a most thrillimr nUiiiti vc whis- ti [er, she said, "Charley! ain't you sorry now!" 3 The color tied from Charley's cheek; hia pale hps quivered a moment, and then he turned, without 8 speaking, to hide himself and his tears in the , cabin; and we turned away, thinking that that young man, perchance, waa leaving behind htm, t! in that loud and lovinn heart, a ir-.asure 01 more p worth ihanail the wealth ol California. o | From th? New Haven Journal, tan 36 1 0 The first departure tr->m our port, for the new n land ol promise, took pldcc yesterday, the good J schooner Montague, Capt. Montague, having teti e at about halt pact 1 P. M , well stowed witii freight ,j and passengers, the number on board being about fitly, all told, including a number of the most en- c terprisn g young men of our community. The l parting waa very interesting and feeling to many 11 ?t the parties concerned, and deep and heartfelt *' wiahes and adieus were reciprocated between pa- , rents, tamilies and friends. Oue case was particu- L larly affecting? a widowed mother offered to her ton. one oi the passengers, with all the persuasion in nerpowtr, any sum to the amount oi 20,000 e dollars, it he would remain at home; but the * spirit of enterprise overcame all other considera- { tions, and he suited. The Montague is a fine little * cralt, ol about 190 tons, well fitted and found, with , an able commander, and has our best wishes for a successful voyage, though we think there will be , some suffering before she reaches her destination, n Four months on the ocean, with a mass of passen- t gers, amidst the vicissitudes of climate and the a weather, will be a trying time to inexperienced 1 voyagers. ? It la rumored that one of the passengers for Callfor- j nia from Philadelphia, on Friday, obtained upwards of r f80 000 upon forged notes, before his departure. He t was boxed up and taken en b><ard the ship as mer- n cbandise, by one of bis friends, and thereby eluded the ? pursuit of the police. q S Naval Intelligence. p< The following la a list f the officers attaohed to the L United States frigate Savannah, now lying at the Navy tl Yard, bound to the Paoihe as the flag ship ef Conoo- II dure Jonea :?

We heard nothing more of the aholl ion ?f slavery until the formation of the present aboil on party. The presentation of a petition, in 1835 o by?, from I'ennsjlvauia. asking Congress to aboltsl iaytry and the stave trade in the Distriotof Columbia ave anew impetus to the fanatics. Some, if not all 0 bem, tbink that they hold the baianee of power. The; re mistaken ; neither the whig party nor the dome ratio party of the North has sympathy with them li nyot tbelr principles, objects, or purposes. At thi tscion, a proposition was offered to abolish slavery li bis District, without the oonsent of Maryland an* 'Irgiula, or the people of the District-to do tba hich all good men have said that we have not the leg* ower to do. nor Is it right. Next, a proposition wa uMnltted to put the negro on a footing with the whit nan, to determine, at the polls, whether the slave' muds shall be broken.

He did not recognise tha s true. He knew but one mode to determine tb? utstion of law and the controversy between th< tates; and in determinating whether elaves be pro trty, he was compelled to look to the Supreme I'ourl f the United States; aad he expressed his surprise bat gentlemen should assert oa thi4 floor, that undoi be constitution there is n 1 right to slaves as property, ndee Storv. a Northern man. delivorurt t.h* nnlnlnn ,.i be Supreme Court, afflrmiDg the right of men to hold lavt b Me property.

I beg Te to eall the attention of oar citlaene tea great 1 which has arisen among us during the past few r?. ty the laws of the State, every owner of a vessel aging forvign emigrants to this city, is required to f one per bead to the Commissioners 01 Koreigu titration. This serves to place a large fund in the ids of the commissioners, by means of whloh tbsy enable! to provide for the destitute who are leaded >n our shore*; and that a vast number of rush peris have hitherto been secured against want and atarlon, every one who knows anything about the suh: can trstiry. In consequence of a suit pending in i of the 1'tilted States Courts, to test the sonstituiality of the eontributfon required by lew to the liae Hospital, which rests upon the same prinolple a that of the contribution to the above named comiers, the owners of vessels bringing emigrant pasgers pay their ;.rr <-<i/u(a tax to the city Chamberi under protest. In order to scours himself, be daree , hand it over to the commleaioaert, and they are is prevented from carrying the benlflcvnt provisions the law into effect Every emigrant whore dollvr in is paid under protest, can receive no assistance from i tommirrionere. and must thus be left to suffer in r struts. without food to appease his hunger, or the ans to get into the country to proours work, which, the vast majority of cases, is all they ask. and which i commissioners could provide tbem, if they were L thus clogged by avarice and heartlesvness.
