He had bet u shot through the bead while on horseback, as there was blood ou the addle. He had also been dragged two or three 'rods, and fifty dollars which he had in hit pocket taken from him. The murdered mau was from Michigan, where he has a family, aud also property to the amount of $30,000. | From the Alta California, July IS.] * One of tbo most terrible and cold blooded murders which wo have ever been called upon to record, was perpetrated on the Mission road, on Saturday afternoon. Francisco Guerrero,an old -and well known rosident of the Missiou, came into town in the morning, in compauy with Robert T. Ridley, Esq. Mr. Ridley desiring to remain in town, Guerrero took his horso to lead out. Hs was picked up, on the plauk road, about four o'clock on Saturday, with his skull brokon, and perfectly < eeuseless, nearly in front of Alderman Green's feouse. He was taken to bis house, where it was supposed that the injuries had been received by the fall from his horse He reiuaiued perfectly i insensible, without being able to speak, till two < o'clock yesterday, when he died. L>rs. Peter j -Smith aud Hitchcock were called out to him 1 f be fore be died, and also made a poit mtrtem ex t- 1 initiation. There were five disiiaet blows upon < pis bead, two on the baok part, two on the left ftamnln n nrl r>r.rt r?n tKu ricrKl anw Ansa n f I which would, in the opinion of the physicians, ' tave proiuoed death. Hie skull was horribly fractured, although the scalp was ni>; broken, wnioh 1 may be accounted for by the fact that he had on a eft felt hat. The wound* on the head are either ' from a slung shot or knotted club?in the opinion ' (of the physioians, the former. T&e wounds could ' not, by any possibility, have been re reived in the j fall from tne horce. The oiroumstauces attending the murder are, as near as we oould ascertain, as ' follows:?A man who was walking into town, says ' he saw Guerrero come riding up slowly on his horse, 1 alone, and that when near Alderman Greene's ! house, ho reeled and fell from his horse. A few minutes afterwards a man came riding by in a hur , ry, upon the horse that Guerrero had been leading. ' He oallod to him to stop, and assist in pioking up J '.Guerrero, but he paid no attention to it, and galloped on. Mrs. Alderman Greene heard ories, and ' HtwGuerrero and another man riding along, as i racing, and saw a striking, as though they were Whipping each other's horses' and a sort of srutflr. 'fne probable manner of the murder was, that the murderer had got upon Guerrero's horse, and ridden up on his left side, and struck him with a ' slang shut while on his horse. Guerrero came into town for the purpose of receiving money, and he 1 was doubtless killed for this purpose; and the mur- 1 derer, after he had fallen, seeing another mm near him, rode on without stopping to search him. The ' supposed murderer has been arrested by the Vigi- ' lance Committee. On Saturday evening, the horse ' which Guerrero led out, was brought to the stable 1 of Green It Bowman, by a Frenchman. Yesterday afternoon he came to the stable for him, and was arrested by the Vigilance Committee, in ' I phase custody he now is. A coroner's inquest was ! eld by Justice Brown, yesterday, but up to a late >Our the jury had not returned a verdict. Francisco Guerrero was a Mexican by birth, , rho emigrated to California some twenty years . iitte. He was alca'd; of San Franrisco previous to he capture of the country, and was sub prefect uner the aloaideship of Col. Geary, lie was well ' mown, and oelebrated for his kindness and hespiality, particularly among the Americans, to whom ' e was always a warm friend. [From the San Francisco Courier. July 7 ] , On the morning of the 3d instant, three brothers, | ly the name of Howe, working at Shirt Tail , anon, between the north and middle forks of , he American river, discovered that they had been | obbed of some $2,100 in dust, and $1)0 in specie, iuspicion fell upon a man by the name of Hamilton ( Tare, who left early on the same day, ortonsibly on , [prospecting tour. He was pursued, arrested, and , irougnt bock on the same day, but escaped again , he next night, before any of the money had been ecovered. He proceeded to the Spanish dry dig- , tings, purchased a mule, and from there went to ptockton. As soon as his escape was known, sere- , sd parties starred in pursuit, taking different routes. )ne of the number, Mr. Benjamin Jenkins, came , othis city, where he arrived on Tuesday night ast, and put up at the Branch Hotel, kept by j kleasis Beaty and Freeman.

Not tnore than ten ^Hmlfcutos had elapsed, before Mr. Jenkins came ^Hdown into the bar room, and immediately cju^Bfftonted the thief, who made a movement towards the door, which was arrested by ^Bj the presentation of one of Colt's "short sixes" by ^B Mr. Jenkins. Mr Beaty soon made his appearance, ^Hknd gave the hotnbrt a polite invitation to go up ^^bltwirs, for the purpose of having his credentials exa^^Bninsd; which ne expressed n willingness to do, bu'. ^^Kequestt d to be permitted to go first to tbe water ^ eloset.

PROCLAMATION TO TUB CtTl/BPH OF SAN FRANCISCO. ' We have arrived at au important crisis iu the ' civil aud social condition and prospects of our city. ( A. voluntary association of men has been formed, ' oudcr peculiar bonds to each other, and assuming ' most extraordinary aud irresponsible powers, and 1 have undertaken ts institute extrajudicial pro- ' :eedings informs not known to the laws. This as- I iociation claims and exeroisea the right to inflict 1 penalties up?n those adjudged by them of ortiuo, ' even to the penalty of Ueatb. and has publicly and | boldly inflicted that penalty in two iustances. They claim aud exercise the right of domiciliary visits, without any accountability, of a character not known under any other thau imyiisitorial governments. The great aud sacred writ of hibtn 1 tirjrun has been rendered by them lnelfjctual, and the authority of the highest tribunal of the State ! disregarded. 1 The circumstances in which the authorities are ! placed, in consequence, seem to demand of me, as ' the constituted chief magistrate, some action by ' which the views and purposes of the city govoru- ' inent, over which 1 have been called to preside, ' may be indicated to the citizens, to the country, ' ind to the world. ' The people of the United States, of whom we ( ire proud to be consilerod a part, have always ittnbuted their eminence above almost any other ' people in the scale of freedom, and security in their 1 rights, to the fact that they lire under a government of laws of their own voluntary adoption. The people of Califoraia hive UteD, perhaps, a ' mote conspicuous place than those of any of the lister States, under a full recognition of that republican medium of public authority and of common protection. The several departments of the only government ' which any man among us can possibly a ckno wtedge, nave been created by the constitution and lavs, to which you, as well as the public ofliccrs, have given i common assent 7 hese departments have been committed to tho administration of men taken from among yourselves, and they hare entered upon their trusts, doubtless, with a firm reliance upon the loyalty of their fellow citizens to the constitution and laws, Tor a steady support in the exercise of their respective functions. The obligation of such a loyalty on the part of the people, is unquestionably as imperative upon them as any of the obligations of the laws can be upon those who are entrusted with their public administration ; and the violation of , obligation on the one tide is as disastrous to the community as the abuse or perversion of official station can be on the other. Tho idea that any defects in the law or any in- j competency of its execution, can bs remedied by voluntary associations of oitizeus, assuming a sup :- ( riority to the laws, is not only preposterous, hut implies an abrogation of all law, and resolves society into a state of perfect anarchy. j 1 he result is inevitably the same, however intelligent may be the minds, pure the motives, or temporarily beneficial the acts of those who become so i associated. In a community like ours, where the institutions of government have but just been established, auy ' combinations of citizens for purposes not author- ' ized by law, and whoso proceedings are not controlled by law, or subservient to the support of constituted authority, can have no other than au insurrectionary tendency throughout the commonwealth; and must, to an absolute certainty, indict disgrace upon us, in the estimation of our countrymen in other parts of the laion, and ruin the confidence which it is of first necossity to our prosperity to secure throughout the comtn ?rci*rworld. With these views I feel impelled, by the strongest sense of official duty, and by every consideration for our common welfare and public character, to mil upon all citizens to withdraw from such asso jiations, And to unite in a common efTort to support the laws, and to sustaiu a prompt and energetic administration of them in their proper application and action. I n addition, I deem the present a proper occasion to announce, in the most distinct terms, that 1 shall i not shrink from a prompt discbarge of the duties which the statutes of the State and the ordinances of the city have made imperative upon mo; and that there may 1* no misapprehension in respect to what these duties may be, I have to call the attention of all citizens to the provision of the " Act to regulate proceedings in criminal cases," Chap IV. I, however, appeal to the good sense and deliberate judgment of my fellow citizens, to relieve me, and the other public functionaries of tho city, by ?

Tney have attacked many ranches on the road to the mines, and killed rjuite a large number of persons. On the evening 1.1 the'2bth, two packers were attacked by tho Indians, nnd oce killed. Tho Indians were travelling with them, and prctendel to be friendly, and when about four miles from Young's runcho they attacked ihirn with knives. One of tho packers, Jacob Bender, was killed on the spot by one Indian, who struck him with a large kmfe on the neck, nutting the jugular vein.

Jul/ 11.] The lctur which w4 publish below, from an inlelligent praotioal farmer, is worth whole volumes )f newspaper articles upon the subject of our agrirultural resources. Here is a mass of faots, goiog jver a series of years, and demonstrating, beyond ;ho possibility of duubt, the certainty that California, rich as she is in mines, is infinitely more valuable in other importaut respects. It is extremely {ratifying to us, who have always conteuded in Favor of tne State's great facilities for ugrisulture, to be enabled to lay before our readers, both upon the Pacific and the Atlantic, so reliable and oontincing a statement. At my Fa km near Ex-Mission dk San Jose, ) Santa C\.ara Valley, July 9,1(151. J I observed an extract from the Juurnil of Cjii mcrre concerning farming operations in California, which refers particularly to ine in fact, but not in name. My name, as recorded, is John M Hornor, born Jane 15th, 1*21, Monmouth county, Now Jer!ey, where my father and his family now reside, eft New York, Feb. 4th^with my wife, two week ifter marriage, for California, to farm; going b the way of Cape Horn and the Sandwioh Islands ind bringing tny farming utensils with me. I ar -ived in California in August, 18MJ, since which time I have been pursuing one steady aim at agriiultural pursuits. First Year? 1 farmed sixty acres in various kinds )f produoe, but gathered nothing bat deat experience. Second Year?I was thrown intooonfusion on acrount of the gold mines. Help coaid not he hired it aDy price, and I am credialy informed that tho Governor himself had to cook his own meals. I farmed but very little, and finally I caught the gold lever, and went to the mines; and there 1 caught the fever and ague, and returned to my farm. I gathered nothing the second year. Third Year? 1 made further preparations for farming. I was determined not to be disappointed, but farm I would. 1 could not hire hauds for $16 per day. 1 tried to enter into copartnership but could not effect it; ail had rather go to the mines. None of my brothers wore jet in the oountry. But 1 would not be disappointed. I got the assistance of three Indians, ana we went to the mountains, 25 miles distant, and there we worked at the red wood (cedars of Lebanon, for eomo of them are 300 feet high,) until we got rails aud posts sufficient to secure fifteen acres, whioh I planted principally in potatoes. The produce gathered was worth $16,000; but unfortunately 1 lost one-half, on accoant of heavy rains setting in, and the soaroity of help. Thus ended the third year. Fourth Year?My younger brother arrived in January. We managed to fenoe some 400 acres and farm 150, principally in potatoes; and our crop yielded about as follows: Potatoes 1 "60 000 lbs. l'umpklns 80.000 lbs Onions 40 000 " Barley 20.000 ' Tomatoes 60. ICO " Wheat 40,000 u Beets 6,000 x Chickens 100 Solid-beaded Hgga Modus cabbages..., 60 COO " Fifth Year, 1851 ?We havo fenced about 1,300 acres, and havo farmed800. We want no rain until December, and we will be sure to gather, of Potatoes 120.000 bus. Bolid Beaded Onions 6.C00 " cabbages 108 000 Table beets.... 4 000 Chickens 600 Turnips 1 OOO ' Eggs 1.200 dor. Carrots 1,010 " Onion seed 600 lbs. Tomatoes 1.200 " Beet u 200 " Barley 5,000 u Cabbage seed... 100 " Pumpkins 30 tons. To meat of the Laitern world who are unacquainted with our soil aud climate, the above account will look almost impossible But, considering that we have nine months out of twelve in which we ran sow, and nine in which we can gather, it is not doubtful And if thero ever was a country in whioh the " pluugbrnsn overtook the reaper," California is that otic A large amount of produce will he raised in California this year for market.

I write from a kr.owltdge of the facts, having spent five years iu the valley. There are 600,000 acres of good tillable land within its borders. The poorest will yield 2,000 pounds ot wheat or bariey, aud the best 70,000 pounds of onions, per acre Notwithstanding the present prices of labor, which are about $70 per month, my calculations, based upon experimental knowledge, are such as to warrant me in stnticg thut t 'alifornia can supply her own niaiket in beet, pork, tlour, birloy, and all kinds of \egetublcs, as cheap, and ot n better quality, than she can be supplied from any quarter of the world. Vegetables will bo very cheap tin* year. 1 nin credibly informed that Mr . "Ueii.berger has purchased the best article oi 1 'aldoruia p itatoes, lor tho supply of the ocean steamers, for the year, at three cents per pound. After the first of August, ].<v>2, California will supply her oan market with barley ; but wheu she c?n supply herself with (lour, is doubtful, us there are no mills iu the country, and farmers will not raise wheat without some prospect of a market.

pavement, formed of diamond shaped stones, alternately white and aleto-oolored. Tae seooad and third stories are divided into a number of ro >m i, to be finished in the same elegant and substantial manner. On the roof, the point usually most exposed in case of fire, the utmost care has boon bestowed to render it proof against the attacks of tho most lieroe heat. A parapet will two feot thick and six feet high, extends around and above- Tae roof is first covered with zinc, soldered so as to be air tight?upon that rests a bed of oeinout one inch tluok, and upon that again is a pavement of fireproof tiles laid in ooment and air-tight. A trap door just largeeuongh for a man to squeeze through, occupies the centre This door is so arranged as to be air-tight and fire-proof when olosed. The doors and windows are furnished at top aud bottom with thick plates ol cast iron, one yard wide and imboided iu the masonry. Tae sides are double frames of iron, two feet apart, with briok work liiiervouiug. i no uoura Him auuvtun ?ro uuu jiu, wuh the tame interval of tiro feet betweoa Thev are coustruoted of boiler iron bare one-fourth of an inoh thick, and braced, in every direction, with iron bare an inch thich. When oloeed, eight heavy bolte to each outeide door and shutter fit into socket* inserted in the back part of the wall, and three iron bare, three itehee thick, are ready to be placed across each butter aDd door, thue preventing even the pissibility of their warping. These arrangements for the security of the doors and windows are perfect. We oanuot conceive how they could be improved. The front presents a neat appearanse. High up is a white stone tablet, upon which, in golden letters, is the inscription, "Adams and Co., 1*51." Just over tho centre of the front door a piece of gold quartz, the Bizo of a briok, is to be placed. The plan of the building, with all the admirable contrivances enumerated above, is the conception of Mr. Haskell, tho gentleman who has charge of the business of the firm on the Pacific, and the whole work was done under his superintendence. The masonry is the work of Mr N. D. Clark ; the carpentering, of Mr. llenry Pierce ; and the iron work, of Messrs. liuikloy & Morse. The exeoution in all its details, is highly creditable to the mechanioal skill of theie gentlemen. We have described this admirable structure somewhat in detail, as well because it is an object of general interest, as that others intending to build may examine and take pattern by it. It may well be styled a model building. It is a porfect salamander. Mlaeellan eoui. NAVIGATION OF T1IE COLORADO RIVER. Major Heinitzlewood having explored the Colorado, from the Gulf to the mouth of the Gila, 110 miles by water and about 65 in a direct line, reports it navigable for steamboats, having, at tho shallowest place, thirty-six inches of water. In tho event that the rich mines known to oxist on the Gila, in the Sta'<e of Sonora, and in the desert mines west of the Colorado, and on the Rio Virgin, shall ever be occupied and successfully worked, the junotion of the Gila and Colorado will become an important embarcadero for their supplies. NKW RIVER. Tho singular appearance of the sudden appoarance of the river in the desert, west of the Colorado, and below the mouth of Virgin river, is thus explained by tho Star, as known to the Indians from time immemorial. "It is produced by the overflow of the Colorado, and extouds eighty miles into tho desert, taking its source thirty miles below the junction of the Gila and Colorado. The "breaking out" of this river last year was considered to h<? inirfLAnlniii atwl vira pira In manv wis.i Utiona. frt'it ix california. There will be no scarcity of fruit this soaion.

The Fauquier WUife Sulphur Springs?Tla? Visiter*, die., dw> [From the Washington Union. August 11 ] ??*? ? l here arc about two hundred and fifty visiters, of both sexes, and all ages and conditions of life, now sojourning at this delightful place. And as those who are most apt, from its caption, to read this hasty scrawl, are most interested in the youDg, the gay, and the beautiful, I shall notice these latter first. One of the most interesting and beautiful young ladies here, is Miss & ?** A****, of this county, llow like a mountain sylph she floats through the mazes of the merry dancs, could better be told, 1 doubt not, by the bevy of gay, gallauat fellows that eagerly seek the sweet partner>-hip of her fair band for too dance of the hour, or of life, than by an ancient Benedict, whose eld blood only leaps along his veins as rapidly as theirs when the sweet vision of a fair girl, like Miu A , flits athwart his weary path ller dark-eyed cousin Miss If*** A***', Is another splendid specinen ?' that rare and queenly beauty with which the good Old Dominion abounds.

Mise E"* L*", of Kappahannoclt, 1r yet another of the sweet bevy of beauty that makes thin Elace its resort during the summer mouths. Hnr the and (lender form and gay laughing countenance are sadly missed from the livelv dance during her prcHcnt briif visit with a party offriecdr, to her ' beautiful and hospitable favani under the Blut Midge; bey huuiirable personation af tbd virgin queen, in the laNtaujc the other eveniig, will long be remembered br those who witnessed it. May she and her gallant guests, (amongst whom ia one of Washington's most waggish b'hoys,) have a joyous tima of it, and soon return to add yet more te the lumbers that arc now thronging the brilliant saloons and quiet cottages of this charming resort. And Inst, though not least, . must not omit to mention the sweet and modest Miss I/*""*. Kve? her shrinking modesty cannot conceal from the discriminating obcerrer the amiability and beauty of ebaiacter which sjieak forth from her large black eyes and calm sweet face.
