IMingtrrmi 4d rritfurr?The Gila Ri. vtr?A /Jtiert. Ifc tfc. Joat as I kid finished iny last letter, there appeared on the op|>o8ite shore " muif ho kombrti," (many men). A glance showed them to be emigrants, and a closer view through a gliss proved them to be Mexicans. As soon as they detected that they were observed, they gave indications of a wish to be passed over This was an uniertaking for which we were knot prepared ; but an anxiety to hear of the stale of the road (for the Indians had been telling us that the Gila was overflowed, and that the emigration would be stopped for several weeks thereby,) overbalanced all other considerations. It was the work of less than an hour to take the body from one of our wagons, and jmiB OVtT ll me canvas iuj? ?u mc eamr, iu oucu k way aa to render the whole inipenetrable to water, ana launch it into the stream Ater having towed it up about hail a mile, to get out of the lulluence of tne rapids opposite our camp, three men jumped into it, and pulled for the op,n>?iie shore ; but to our horror and astonishment, it was rooa seen that from the clumsy character of the beat, (it being but about twice as long as it was broad,) and from the fact that the attempt to cross was made too near the influence of the rapids, when thejr got within the full force of the current the bout tiecaiue completely under its influence, and was hurled dowa stream at a rapid rate. On, on it went, till within a few rods of where the danger was most imminent, when a divergence iu the course ot the current, aided by the strenuous exertions of the boatmen, threw it into an eddy, and they were saved. Thus, by the merest accident, were ihe lives of three valuable men, heads of families, preserved from a sudden death. The party of Mexicans proved to be from the City of Culiacan, iu the Sia'e cf Sia.iloa, and within about 280 miles of .Magellan. As it usual in these companies, there are u few proprietors, with a large number of peons. They came by the route not often travelled at this season of the year, via Alter. This is the most northern and western town in Sonora, and lies nearest the head of the Gulf, of any wttlement in it. Beyond it, northwardly to the Gila and westwardly to the Gulf, is an unbroken desert, never explored by the foot of a white man, and supposed to be almost wholly H^flfifntP rtf tt'?tr?H Vittfr miH cim<aa WifKin a ft* u/ yearn has been discovered a loud that in passable in the raiuy season, direct to the Gila, distant about 2t0 miles, and striking it about 2 .leg. from its mouth. It ia by thin road that our friends had travelled. They Buy their animals had no grass from the time they lett Alter till the time they struck the Gila; and thet tor four days at a time ihey were without water.

The River Gila, fr , frc. Whan 1 wrote you laat week, our relations with the Indians were of an apparently friendly character. The next day, however, our interpr?ter took upon himself to lecture the old chief upon the outrages his tribe had committed against emigrants in times past, and to threaUn him with the chastisements of the American government. This very unwise course at once excited hit antipathies, and he departed in high dudgeon. The next day there was but very little trade, and but a very few Indians appeared at all around the camp. It so happened that just at this time we got into a general row with our men. These were mostly old soldiers and other worthless cnaracters, i^pMikia to control, (lid we detertniued to discharge them, which we did, and they left the next d4y. From causes not necessary to explain, two of my partners determined also to leave at this tune, and they went oH with the men. This lea me company, inclining three hired men, juiit seven strong. Our position was a very insecure oue, aud it was obvious that our lives were every in^uient in danger upon the separation of our'company. It was at lirst supt>08ed indispensable that we should relinquish the objects of our ex|*dition altogether, and return to the settlements. Hut ihis wis thought too sunt a sicritice, and we lia illy determined to fall back to tlie tirit defeasible point, fortify ourselves as well as we could, and hold on till, by the arrival ofi migrants, we could get the power to return and take pot-session of the terry. 80 here we are. If there ever a place where a smill number of men could defeud tueniselves agmnst 4 greatly superior Indian force, this u one. It is a precipitous blnfl up >n the margin of the river, of about two hundred feet high, and command* a good view of the surrouuiiing country for several milt s.

Nothing can ever render this section desirable us a residence, eicept it should possibly be made the l>oint over which a railroad shall pass between the Pacific and the Atlantic States.

Par tut from California?Building a Fort?Iti Potitiom?Tht Indian*?Arrival of Califomiant ? Ncu> Kivtr, 4'C , $ ('. Just us I was sending off my last letter to you, one of our company, who had started for " the settlements," made his appearance. He met on the way a litter from San Diego, giving intelligenca wluc.1i, as it khows the mode in which matters take a turn in this country, 1 will relate. It appears, in the first place, that when intelligence reached San Francisco of the murder of Glontin and his companions at this place, and of the piles of money he had accumulated, two parties were at once formed there to come down and take posaeession of the ferry One of these was got up under the auapicea of Colonel Jack Hays, whilom of Texas, and ciw..ur,.f c ? tka a>k.,. ?.n. uun onei in ui uau i loutim u. iuc umci nuc jjui up, it wbb said, by Col. Graham, of San Francisco, both of these partieB, numbering 20 men each, had arrived at San Diego, one of the-n, it was said, with $20,000 worth of good* to trade with the Indians. lu addition to this, an application for a licence to keep a ferry at this point had been made by a brother of Major Fitzgerald, who commands the forces in the Southern section of California. To make up the complement, a couple of Yankees'were actually on their way with goods fur this point, and would be up in a few days. This being the state of affairs, it was at once concluded to be in<lui>ensible that we should proceed forthwith from our then camping ground, and take possession of this point, as this has been heretofore the place where the ferries have been established, anditis also unquestionably the point where the military force were to be btati?ned when it arrives. Accordingly, the next night we yoked up our teams, and pushed ahead, and without meeting any obstacle worth relating, found ourselves the afternoon of the following day at the I mint at which my letter is dated. This, joumust mow, is on a high bluflat the angle formed by the Colorado, immediately before and after its junction with the Gila. These two rivers, by the by, as they meet eaeh other, flow from exactly opposite point?, and the united force of their waters or some other cause, has forced a patsige through a high hill. ? The spot we occupy has always been called Concepcton on the Mexican maps. It appear* to have been at one time occupied, for in building our fort we found abundant remains of old buildings. There was once, it is well known, a mission in this neighborhood, but it was situated, as has generally been supposed, on the north side of the Gila, about a mile above this. At all events, Major Emory gives it this location. The position here is a very Pe asant one. At one view the eye takes in the Gila, the Coloradoj before its union with the^ for mer, ana me unuen streams as tney nurry on rapidly to tbe south,| or rather to the west, as that is the course the rivet takes tor some distance after pacing our camp. We have built a fine stockade fort, and consider ourselves perfectly aafe. Our Yankee iriend* have come up, and as we have disposed of all our goods we have permitted them to come alongside, and put themselves under our protection. The spring emigration has not yet commenced. This is remarkable, aa it ia at least six weeka later thin it was last year. The Indiana are friendly, yet evtdently do not like the idea of Americans establishing themselves here. 1 shall aend yon a long letter about these people at some other tune. Since writing the above, one of the companies from San Francisco has arrived, and ij encamped on the river, about a mile below us. Several of tlierii are from New York. I learned from them that New river, us it is called, has again made its appearance. This is a stream of water, both wide ond deep, about midway of the desert, that flows up from the Colorado, and, what is remarkable about it. begina to api>ear just as the Colorado begins to fall. It was never known there for sixty years, it is said, till last season. It is %?re?t blessing to travellers, for, without it, the desert would be almost impa*suble at tins season. Ia the fall, when the waters subside, an excellent crop of grass eprincs lip, and this, too, of course, serves a ver\ valuable purpose to the traveller. It is a matter of considerable speculation, with us here, to know what has become of the spring emigration from the States, this season. It is a month, and even more, later this season, thin last. trp to this time, not sample company have arrived, that have left within the present year T. F.

Since then little has occurred to disturb our tranqaillity No American companies have arrived, and we h ive almost given up ihe idea of tbeir being any on tbe road. On Tuesday last we had <juite an excitsment, occasioned by the arrival at tbe owoait* shore of an American, who soon came over with a companion.

At the tine of the massacre, there chanced to be a company of aoldiera on it* way from Sonora to California, who were, at the time, attending mass in the chapel.? The irreverent Umahs, probably supposing the Spaniards were in a suitable frame of mind to lesave the world, at an opportune moment despatched them with theirclubs. The walls of the mission were levelled with the ground, and its remains can now be distinguished about a mile above the mouth of the Gila, at least so says Msjor Enaory. Wince that time, there his been found no devotee of the cross snflicif ntly enthusiastic to attempt their conversion, and they are now, in the lHMjiiHije of one of their number to me the other day, mm undo rhrutunns (very bad Christiana ) I can but believe that u prudent and sensible missionary would here find ns promi?tn? a field for the exarch'- of his benevolence. as any other on the ertfttineat They nn a sensible and a threwd race, mid 1 have no doubt are readily susceptible to kindly influences. Since the destruction of the mission, little has been known of the Umshs till within a late period. About two years sao commence! ? new en in their history. A rush of emigrants from Mexico and from the United States across their territory, had then commenced, which has contiuue 1 almost without interruption till the present hour. No complaints was made of the conduct of the Umahs till last season. I hey then eouummced a system of robbery and pillnge, and even murder, that Ihh seldom been equalled in a civilized lnnd. Loud complain'b were made to government, and at last Lieut. Coutts, with the I double object of protecting the emigrant*, and of prosecuting the boundary survey, came out here and located nimself at the point we now occupy, in October last. lie continued here for several months,and established the first ferry u|H>n the river. The Indians were very indignant at this invasion of their rights, and made direful threatening*, but prudently avoided a collision. t*oon after he left, another party took possession of the ferry, which soon became notorious as "Glontins." Their fate id well Uuown. The Indians rose upon them, when most of them were asleep and all unsuspicious, and killed every man but three, who were absent. Since that time, two other companies have established themselves on the river, and a military force will soon be stationed upon it permanently. The glory of the Umahs has de|?rted. Their supremacy upon the great Colorado of the West, will never more return to them. Their future fate can readily be discerned. Imitating, alone, the vices of the whiles, they will melt away before'their advancing strides, till ,the places which now know them, will know tbem no more?when, as at a no distant day, a smiling village, or, perhaps, a proud city, may be seated u|?on their now favorite habitation at the lunction of the Oila and Colorado. It will be an interesting association in its history, that on its site once lived and flourished the tribe of I'mahs. T. F. Oar Oregon Correspondence. Okkson City, June 15, 1850. The Legiilativt Auembly?Pulltir*?Trial atui Execution of the Cayutti?Gold.^c., $*c. Popular attention has latterly been strongly attracted towards Oregon City, where events of a deeply interesting character have been transpiring; and so far as they are, or may be, interesting to your readers, they will be noticed. The Legislative Assembly c?nvened in special tesaion in Oregon City, on the 6th of May, on the call of Governor Lane. This session was called to provide lor some things which had been overlooked by the Assembly at its former session. Their doings, however, were entirely of a private nature, and their rehearsal would add nothing to the interest of this letter. Governor Lane is making commendable efforts to have the civil affairs of the Territory in the best iK>ssible condition when the hour of his official departure shall arrive ; and, in order that he might effect hU object, the Assembly were atked to alter, amend, or add to some of their former acts. In doing so, they remained together two weeks, and passed, perhaj*, some half dozen acts, original or supplementary. The members of Legislature are men of good sense and sound integrity, and they have on the whole framed an excellent code of laws. One subject of discussion, though not of definite action, deserves a passing notice. The idea *f a State government has been extensively discussed in private circles; and as the measure is decidedly popular, the subject wus agitated in both branches of the Assembly, and there is little doubt that the que*?ion of calling a convention to frame constitution would have been aubmitted to the people if the flection had not been so near at hand a* to prevent a full and fair canvasi of the matter.

The circumstances, as I underMaiid them, are these:? the company, a* a checit on their conductors, and that the trains may not be decayed in giving out ticket!, and making change with passengers in the cars?in other words, for the great oonveaience of the public?have lately adopted a rule requiring all to purchase tickets at the several ticket olficej before entering the cars, or pay an additioaal live cents when procured in the cars. Col. Molt was at l>over, and reached the depot just in timet* jump on board as the train was leaviug, nnd wh'-n the conductor called for ticket*, had none. Tlie extra live t ents were demanded and refused, the cars Btop|>ed, and .he intractable ( oloii-l r llence the complaint and bill.

Storm. (Proa the ChlgM o (1U) Tribune, Kept 1] The storm baa written iu muk upon the lake shore b# legibly (bat years will not efface it. Tba first evidence of its effect is to be seen betw ^e? , haodolph and Washington stieets, where, for the distunce of nearly a block, the high bank has be-n I curried away for the distance of naif a block, aud I the deepest cut, from ten to twenty feet, took tree* and fence with it. The ne*t point, and where the wares set in with the greatest violence, is between Madison and Monroe atri ?-t?. The dee|test cut cannot be less than thirty or forty feet of what was the solid emI baukment, which, as it was undermined and feu, carried away the fence separating the lake shorn grounds from the street, two rows of treea in tha street, and at one point, nearly op|<ot>ite < General Stewart's, took the railing for two or three rods in* side of the trees, the water encroachiug upon ths carriage way. | On Saturday afternoon, we watched the fierce onset of the waves ui*)ii the land for hall an hour hi this point, and though the atorni had tiirn somewhat subsided, the rate at which the emtunkment i disappeared could not be less than severtil feet uer hour. At every third or fourth wive, when, Mter ; successive eflorts, the boiliag Hood had acquired a suflieitnt monientum, it daslied furious'y up the slope of blue clay, took a huge mouthlul of the I earth lying next to it, and then a slice of the bank above, havinc no supi>ort from beneath, would fall. ! T. w ? .k?. it .k- k>ii ! raged with the fame violence ft>r twelve hours I longer, the greater (>art) au(j perhaps, all of the I Htreet would have disapjtesred at this point. Aa it was, we found, on visiting the s|?ot yesterday morning, that borne tea feet of ground had disappeared since the previous afternoon. Only the day before the storm, General Stewart hid got limb' r on the ground to build a protection for the embankment opposite Ins residence, but the water claimed it for its own. Another deep cut, though not so serious as tha last named, was made opposite the next block touth, between Adams and Jackson streets; and for a mile or more south of this paint, as far as the eye can see, the hungry waves have eaten a huge slice of the embankment, of the width, we should judge, of from ten to twenty feet. Ttie whole amount of ground carried away, for the whole distance, will not fall short of six or eight acres. The Niagara was u good deal weither-bratea on her arrival in |>ort, and the strain of her machinery, added to the tossing of the waves, turned evervthing topsy-turvy within. Some of the cabin winnow* were stove in by the violence of the waves. The damages, however, are not so serious as to require a great length of lime to repair them. We learn by conversation with those on board, that she kad a constant struggle with the gale for thirty-six hours, all the wau-from Mackinaw; and, owing to the violence of the storm, was unable to put in either at Sheboygan or Milwaukee, tlmugh she had freight and passengers for both places. I On entering between the piers, Bhe passed over the bar, whore there is only seven feet of water, and ! her draft is nine or ten Had it not been for the tremendous lift of the waves, she would have stuck fast. About two o'clock on Saturday afternoon,steamer Canada, from New Butialo, hove in sight, and after beating south cf the piers, passed ttn-in and took up a jx^ition inside of the north pier, where she lay till towards evening, when she came in 1 without serious difficulty. She had been roughly i used by the storm, her works on one side having been considerably stove in. We regret to learn j thatcne of the waiters, on attempting to p iss into the kitchen, not knowing that the flooring was gone, stepped through-into the lake ami w^s not 1 seen afterward*. We did not learn tun full name, I but he was called "Dan," aud belonged to De| trolt The report that the Canada sprung aleak, coini pelling Capt. Hullin to come in sooner than he intended, is totally untrue. In coming over the , bar the boat struck once, which broke a water i supply piiie, near the bottom of the hold This permitted t/ie ingress of considerable water, which i bad to be pumjieil out t>efore the break could be repaired The hull is as staunch and tujht .n ever. The Canada was unable to touch at New Huti'alo, but lay anchored oj>|>osite that place the whole of Friday night. She consequently brought no mail*. by persons from Milwaukie, we learn tint tliare nre two ves*e|a Hshore ne^r there. The steamer Su'tana made Milwaukie, but was compelled to stand out. She laid at anchor during the gil>*, a short distance out. We learn that she suffered considerably in broken furniture, bestde losing one of her pi|*s.
