A ? froi We have received some additional intelligence of interest trom Panama and Chagres, by the ||0u cteanuh ip Crescent City. As The latest accounts from Panama are of the J? 1 morning of the 8th, and from Chagres of the afternoon of the ?hh inet. There were three schooners at Panama announced for San Francisco. They would leave glR between the 8th and 20th met., with passengers. The Humboldt, coalship, was also there; but would aboi not go to California. The bark Philadelphia was disc not there, as previously reported, but was daily ex- tlon pected. She will probably be chartered to take passengers to the gold region, and one or two ves- *ni1 eels from the South were ti touch at Panama, on baT iheir way North. There had been five deaths mail, viz:? tu n Mr. I.uckett, of New Orleans; . Cspt. Elliott, of the Quartermaster's Department; Mr. Blreb, of New Orleans; ?r ' Mr. 0eo. W. Taylor, of Providence, R.I.; "J"! Mr. Thome, of New York. The latter gentleman died in Panama, on the call morning of the 8th Inst. He iB a son of Mr. Thomas W. Thome, President of the National Fire Insurance Company, of this city. o We leara that a party of engineers, New Grana- gra, dians, were met on the road, between Chagres ete* and Panama, preparing to clear the road and im* *0% prove it for travel. moi The Oius was expected at Chagres in a few days. Shr, it will be recollected, is to ply on the srei Chagres, and will run up fifteen or twenty miles. This will dispense with the use of the canoes. cbr New York, January 27, 1849. sa* J. G.

January 7th,?I noticed uut one or two points of information which appear to brad me incorrect, or at least subject to difference of depi opinion ainoug those who have crossed the lath- on,r inus of Garten. UP u You say " it appears that emigrants to Califor- ,ron nia suffer very much on the route from Chagres to Panama."

It of r? certainly is not as easy travelling as by railroad dcl" to Rahwny; but on iny word, sir, taking the novelty"and excitement of the thing into consideration, Jf?1 it is quite as agreeable. Your Panama correspondent may prefer the Cape Horn route, and he is entitled to his opinion; ft?l but when I leave for California, I shall most as- A snredly cross the Isthmus. to*: The canoeing up Chagres river, which your cor- ** ' respondent appear* to dread so much, we found J?*111 quite an agreeable variety in the mode of travelling; ' J and the novelty guve it a zest which rendered it 3 really enjoyable, although ,we did "sleep two ,r#? nnhts in our canoe," and in some respects were ^Un rather p tcked in heads and points.

Tne charge of |I2 fi r a mule, which your correspondent speaks of, ta not an exorbitant one in 5 NE MOB present demand for animals for transit, alugh $10 would be nearer a fair price, s to the advice to friends at home, his first d is, I think, personally good. As to the serf, I differ with him, most decidedly, and say, you wish to go by the Isthmus route, go! It ia euch bugbear as it is represented." 'he third point of advice is eicellent. Take as e over personal baggage as may be, and as e of that as you can get on with. Send your ght round the Horn. Pack what you curry in eels not exceeding 125 lbs. weight. .a to " Mr. Negrito Istemenos'" letter, so far n "hosts of Yankees stuck" in Chagres, I not over 100 there, just arrived; and in all bability, twenty-four, or at most forty-eight re, would see them all on their way up the river, to the "entire prohibition of tobacco, Arc. even ransit," I can only say that I landed with a iiarter box" for my use on the road, and it was even winkt J at.

But a few days hadjiassed beto the public became enlightened; the discovery w made that it was unsa'e to proceed in thismanu single-handed and alone. It was dangerous, tils a man was sure to (be robbed of his pickings c thei e, l( he saved his life.

Now to get in the crowd, and * get their names, this wns an easy matter?one by pd one they come along, pay down their 10 per cent, ed and sign the constitution. Forty names are wanted, and they have got them. $250 a share is fixed upon and $2,600is in the hands of the Treasurer. It is earnest now. The next step to Itr taken, in io get a ship?the whole body of shareholders constitute a committee of purchase ; and all are out alier I the desired object. You can see them running up 10t and down South street, and the bank of the North ! irg ftiver, just as the people put a bill up on a vessel 1 "for sale."

But ships are ships in proposition times. The Mutual Proposition Company have ?r? an office or rather u lendezvous, down at the ofh? fice of a young commission house, in South street. The Company have given this house their 0B? business, for the use of their office.

The surplus money, alter paying for the ship and her outfit, is invested in everything that the council think will be ofservice in the gold region?spades, hoes, rakes, shovels, tongs, pokers, crow-bars, sitters, turnaces, and a Sdd digger only knows what. All these belong to e Proposition Society. The balance of the cargo ? that is, individual member's property, (and old Noah never had nucha variety tor his cargo) ? boxes ot old crockery, looking glasses, old newspapers, hats, caps, cast-off clothing, ana a thousand things, from a pair of pistols, fireman's cap, and a military uniform with great big gold epauletts, down to thimbles, needles, skeins of cotton and silk, which the wife and sisters have sent along for the brave propositionist to do his own mending. A captain has been selected at the last moment, for every member had a choice; and each knew lots of pilots, mates, and Norm liiversloop captains, to choose from. " What's the difference 1 Aint one captain as gi.od as another, Mr. President1?" asks a member. "Jest exactly us good a man no doubt, but we want a chap that's been round the Horn, understands the variation and the run of the currents." The ship clears.

We have, thus fur, sketched only the outline of a mutual association of men, who liave combined together to go to California. In doing this, we have not half done the work we intend to do. In another chapter, we will give the details. The sample of this association is a fair one, (with a few variations,) of the hundreds that have been, are forming, and will be formed here, Hnd in every other seaboard city of the Atlantic coast. Rut we have not entered into the details; there is some excitement in such a company, as a mass, each with hiB 250 dollars, to pint up when called tor. Rut, when we come to |>en a graphic sketch ot the many, very many, individuals who signed that constitution, without a blessed cop to buy a penny apple; and give facts, not fancy sketches, ol how each one, so poor, did, In his own circle, raise that $250 to buy a share ? how he borrowed from this and that friend, sold his little library of a dozen books?how a fond sister would rart with every little trinket, worth two shillings, or even a sixpence, the ear-rings, the simple head ornaments, tne finger ring, with the little agate in it?gave 'em all up, cheerfully, and with a willing heart, to let the favorite John or Tommy go and spout them to his uncle, Mr. Simpson, down in Chatham street, and only asked him, in return, to give her the ticket to keep, and to be sure, when he got out to California, aua had big lumps of real shining gold lying piled up nil about him, not to forget tier and the ticket, but to send home, by the first chance, the needful, that she might go, ere a year was up, and ask good Mr. Simiwon to give her back all those dear little trinkets, that she would'nt have parted with on any account, only that her dear darling brother hud set his heart on going to California to dig gold; she hadn't the heart to say " no," when her little mite, added to other little mites that he had raked and scrH|?d together, might, and did, make up the $250. and bought him a share in the stock ot the California Proposition Mining and Smelting Company. * * * * * MOVEMKNTS IN NEW YORK.

INCIDENTS AND MOVEMENTS CONNECTED WITH THE OOI.D EXCITEMENT. i no rroviaence Journal nas ueen lavorea wmi the following extract of a letter, dated Lima, Dec. 8, 1818. _ "The news of the newly discovered mines in California has created great sensation on this coast, from Chili to Mexico. Some 15 or 20 vessels have sailed, or are preparing to sail from Valparaiso, Callao, l'ayta, and Guayaquil, with full cargoes of dry goods, hardware, agricultural and mining implements, provisions, tec , with their cabins and decks tilled with passengers. One vessel is on the point of sailing from Valparaiso, with 180 pasBemjets." Too same letter elates that everything is quiet at Lima. The Roeton Traveller says:?"One of the peculiarities of the California emigration from New England, is the disposition manifested by many of the companies to receive the counsel and warnings of clergymen, in the form of public addresses. Among the best addresses that we have seen or heard on such occasions, is that of Rev. Dr. Worcester, of Salem, before the Naumkeag Mutual Trading and Mining Company, a report of whigh will be found on the outside of today's pnpef. The company sailed from this port in the Capitol, on Tuesday. The Jlotton Journal gives the following incident:?The scenes which transpire on the departure of the California vessels, are not devoid of interest, melancholy though it be. ft requires not a little of that "sterner stuff" to stifle the feelings and keep back those tender emotions of the heart, which spontaneously gush forth, as these hardy adventurers step on board the vessel, and extend the hand for ihe lust friendly grasp, and pronounce those last words " good bye. Many an eye is bediinmed with tears, and many a heart (at least among those friends who remain) bleeds al the separation from those who for years, and often from their nra/llffa ll'iVu lionn f liu /kkioots e\ f fliair n f c* QUH Dj II CI V L/C V 11 M1V ^'UJVtlO VI UICII Ql ICI/HUU3 nod most earnest love. ' Some of those who go out are prompted only by a love of adventure?a desire to see the world. A case came under our observation tins morning, oi a young man about 17 years of age, from New Hampshire, who goes out in the brig Mary Wilder, lie is the son of rich parents, who have oflered him eveiy inducement to stay at home, llis lather has oflered hirn ten thousand dollars if lie will remain, and an aunt, who followed him to the wharf, oflered him seven thousand more. But he preferred going. The tears (lowed down the face of that kind aunt, as she left the wharf, alter the brig had hauled oil into the stream, and sorrowfully wended her way homewards ! It is said that the young man is heir to about two hundred thousand dollars. The ship Montreal sailed yesterday for San Francisco, via the Sandwich Islands. She has hut a few passenger*, whose names we published a day or two since. Among other* were H. A. Pierce, Esq , one of the owners of the vessel, and wile. The vessel was very elegantly fitted up, and the voyage will doubtless be a very pleasant one for ihe passengers. The Montreal was stowed to her utmost capacity with enrgo. A new company, to be called the "Pacific" company, is organizing in this city. The capital stock i is to be divided into thirty shares, of $1,0(X) each. The Kail Fiver Monitor says that the bark Mai- j lory, from New York, has been purchased by a company of voung men of Kali Kiver, aad is ex- ( petted to sail for California by the middle of Febluary.
