When the California was off Hun D-e**, she passed the steamship Oregon, on her wny Iro n Panama to Sail Francisco When Uwy retched Acapulco, the passengers learned th<t twn'y-live of those who took passage in the ?t?auisfiip Panama, bound to Siu Ftaucisco, were sick witti fever.

Among the new places for business and residence, which have, within the past few months, made much progress in settlement and facilities for carrying on commerce. South San Francisco 'skes the precedence. Th.S place is about two miles fouth of the old town, and on the direct road to 1'iiehln San Jose, the capital of California. The anchorage at this place is more secure than at any other on the bay, and vessel* can come within their len&tti of the shore. It is completely h' lien d from the prevailing winds, and the depth of water is sufficient to Hoat the largest and most deeply Ittdt-R vessel. A* a place for storage, and Security from fire, it is |>eculiarly desirable, on ae_ count of its being remote from the most densely ??ti|fd part of San Francisco. It his a fine stream of rur.ning wat^r, which makes it one of the mo-t healthy places of residence in the coantry. It is now the iteort of bhipping, tor obtaining fresh water.

"?* >tie r .'Ur" iiave been failing lately with a fiiurfold vt?;or, and the streets are muddier than ever w is Broadway in the palmiest day a of city retorm. We b?ve not yet reached to the height of city luxury, pavt d streets; and the soil is of such a t?ruliar nature, that the sliahtest shower mikes mm four to twelve Inches of mud. But between the rains we enjoy some days of beautiful, balmy unthine, w hich serve in a measure to ?li-<,>el the H'ie devils which gather over ua during the time the torrents are falling. The rams have descended, this year, with more th?n usual severity; witnin the momory of the "oldeat inhabitant," tb?* rainy ifiioo never commenced so early, and we hope that it may close with the some promptitude. With the opening of the spring, the larger portion of the population which have been cooped up here during the winter, unable to move out, will make an almost una. nimoua puth for the golden hills of the Sierra Nej varfa, there to realise their fondest dream*, and i lobd their poiketa with the biggest lumps; while { others, born under a leaa lucky planet, will curae their etara fur ever coming to California. People rrive here with the atrangeat notions In thair .leads that were ever dr<Mrn"d of.

Now, the ?a never a place in the world where Jlfficait for a man without money, or i olive, than in Han Franctaco. There are iiiIk ill Bpplu Hiions for every VHimiry that ' >!< in the Poat Office and Custom House, and the larger portion of those who have arrived here thix winter, are loafing about the atreeta, un?ble to preenre employment of any description. I was very much amused, thia morning, with a tall boost* r, who sreosted me aa I waa standing on the coiner of the street, with " 1 aay, stringer, have you been loan in these paita V ' About three )eara," I replied "Well, stranger." aaid he, "can >i n tell me whar that society is, that lend* money : to folks that want to go to (tie minea I saw that srmebody had been nuiixisg hifn, and I nndeceived him, by informing him th it benevolent aocietiea j hail not yet begun to flourish on thia soil.

The river is said to be tull of scrub oak snugs ana sand bars, and cannot be successfully navigated by steamboats until cleared. A city will undoubtedly be established on the San Joaquin, somewhere between the Stanislaus and the Toulumne?probably on the high bank opposite to the latter river. The ground rises gradually from the river for a di*> tince of eighteen mile*, to the mountains, where there are thousands of wild horses, elk and deer. It will be a fine region for fanning when the gold miues are exhausted. It is mr- hundred mile* from Smu Francisco by land, and seventy-five mile* from San Jose. I may at ? future time give you some further information about the San Joaquin and the souther* mines. ItoiiEav Wilson. Stockton, Jan. 8, 1S50. I have just seen four delegates who have been sent from the Calaveras to this place, for the purj??se of laying before our citizens a correct account of the proceedings in the mines which led to ttia deplorable occurrences of which 1 have already given you the particulars, It appears that the Chilians, in the endeavor to have Judge Collier and other Americans on the Calaveras arrested, were aided by certain persons, who would now wish t* shirk from all responsibility. A meeting ot the citizens of Stockton was htld yesterday, for the purpose ot hearing the Calaveias Delegates ; aud those gentlemen vindicated, in a most able and satisfactory manner, the course pursued by the Americans toward* the Chiliauaoa the CaUveras The latter bad, by false swearing, procured from the Prefect of this place a writ for the arrest of Judge Collier and other persons. If this writ h id K... .. tk. ..<* ? ? - v? I II J iniru III Uir uauua v/? a piupri uiucri, iia injunctions would have been promptly obeyed.
