INTKKAST1NU ACCOUNT OF TBB AMKI.H, ETC., KTC. The survey of the Pacific wagon rood on the 35th parallel of latitude is completed. We started from Ban Antonio, tfexaa, on the '25th of June, 1867, and an advance party ariived at Loe Angelas on the 11th of November; making the entire trip in four and a half months. The survey waa ordered to be made teem Fort Defiance to the Colorado river, hut the party did not go to the post. The work was begun at the Pncblo of Znni, and terminated at the Colorado. We did not meet any Indians, or even see any, ntil we were within a few days travel of the river, when an event occurred which interrupted the monotony of our hitherto uneventful journey. We had amped for the day at the base of some tall and agged bills, and oar geologist thought he would take a stroll and examine the huge boulders which were lying around. Meeting with some curious specimens, be laid down his double barrel gun to look at them, and went a few paces further in his search for others. Imagine his consternation on looking up to find his weapon in the possession of three Indians, who, but a moment before, had been as remote from hiB thoughts as the east is from the west. Mr. Geologist had often spoken of seeing Indians that ft one else saw, and of deliberately scrutinizing them; but alas! that cool self-possession forsook him en this occasion, and making a straight coat tail, he came into camp as if all the fnries were after him, his countenance pale as kshes and his eyes glaring wildly. He had not once thought of recourse to the ?fa-shooter at his side. We had seen the tracks of Indians for several *?y?, and Lieutenant Beale, who knew their value as guides, bad that morning expressed a desire to make one of them prisoner; and, singular to say, before the day closed we caught two of them?an old man and a boy. They were terribly frightened at first, but after clothing and feeding them they seemed to be very well satisfied. That night we let fee boy go, but the man remained with us three days, and served the expedition greatly by guiding m to water. The next morning, while we were eating breakout!, we heard a loud "halloa"'by a strange voice, and what was our astonishment to seen an Indian coming towards us with our geologist's gun in his hand. He came into camp alone and restored it to Lieutenant Beale, talking rapidly all the while, pointing to the sky and ground, and swaying his bodv incessantly to and Iro. The Superintendent made him a few trilling presents and sent him away highly pleased. Such restoration of a gun, the dearest of all things to an Indian, is, perhaps, without a parallel. We reached the Colorado river on the evening of Ihe 19th of Octoi>er,and camped on its margin, iu a beautiful prove of cottonwood trees. Here we found swarms of the Mohttves, and a finer looking set of men 1 never saw, nearly all of them standing mx feet in height, and many even taller. They wore nothing but a cloth girt about their loins, and exhibit the very perfection of manly strength and symmetrical lieanty?straight as the pine and active as the deer. Their laces are intelligent and even handsome, the cheek bone kieing but little more prominent in them than in the white race. The women wear skirts made of the inside of the bark of Irees, and show some taste in making them. They are very lively and kept up au incessant chatter, seeming to be <|uitc happy and not at all the degraded creatures they have been represented to be. Obesity seem* to be a mark of beauty among them, lor they are the largest women I ever saw. They seem to like white men, and when F tied a fancy colored handkerchief around the neck of one of tnein, she commenced laughing immoderately, and I thought she would have embraced me. The Colorado river is a beautiful stream. It Is about 300 yards wide where wc cross it, and has from twelve"to fifteen feet of water in the channel. This was perhaps 170 miles from its mouth. Further down of conrse it is much broader and deeper. The next morning wetiegan the work of crossing it. This occupied us two days, and was a most tiresome job. All our baggage was taken over in an India rubber boat, which the foresight of the Superintendent had 8rovided, and which answered its purpose admirably, ur force at this time was divided, it t>eing necessary to put a guard over our baggage, as it was de|?osited on the western side, to keep the meddlesome natives ofl who swarmed around it; and a portion on the eastern side to watch the wagons and to direct the work; aud 1 do assure you I have been much more pleasantly suuaieu uimi hum- una iur mwr ?gm-;iuie neighbors than those swarms of gigantic savagea who were anxions to inspect everything, ami who flen broke into loud cries and fierce gesticulations, eemingly bent on a fight. The m?<iuj oprraruli of getting our wagons over was to put air tods under them, and stretching a rope entirrly across the river, which was made fast to the wagons, we pulled them over by main strength; and it required no little effort after they had gotten into shoal water to get them to the shore. Then the Indians were made useful. Seising hold ?f the long rope, they pulled with a hearty good will, and seemed to consider it great sport. Having gotten onr baggage over, then came the aamels. It is ssserted in natural history that they aannot swim, and we watched the experiment witn intense interest, as tbeir loss would have heen a great, perhaps a fatal disaster to the expedition. First, only one of the males was led down to the river, a roue was then fastened to hi* head and thrown to a Man in the boat, in order to keep his nose above the surface in the event of his really being unable to swim; but the prtcanMon was needless. Jit first the animal refused to enter the water, bill once In he breasted it bravely .and though carried some distance down the stream by the rapid current, hfe reached the opposite shore In safety, amidst tho plaudits of the entire multitude, both ot Indiana and white men, and to our unspeakable satisfaction. The rest were sent over, five and six si a time, without any difficulty. We were not as fortunata with our mules. Wom not by incessant lalmr, end weakened by want of food, some of them were unable to resist the strong current, and were swept down and drowned. Then commenced a sickening scene. Scarcely had the breath left their leslie* when they were dragged out of the water by the ludiauw, and torn iitnb from limb to gratify their savage appetites. Throwing huge pieces of the recking fiesh on the HreswWoh t?ry had hastily kindled, they allowed them te Inn* for a few moments, and then, no longer able'to refrain from their horrid feast, they tore it with the*- teeth like hungry dogs, while their laces and hawts were besmeared with gore. Having succeeded in getting over the river without any serioua accMknt. the next morning, a little after sunrise, we bade adieu to the place and its inhabitants, and asoved on towiu-ds the setting sun. On the r)th m November we reached the Mohave rtver. a very small stream, scarcely more than a brook, and as our mules were greatly In need of rest, and our provisions were nearly run out. Lieut. Reale left a party in charge of the wagons and teams. And taking all the ramel*. (twenty four tn number.) and about twenty men, went down the Mormon road, which was distant only fifteen miles from our ramp, towards Nan Bernardino, for frr?h supplies. Finding a ranch within live miles of the town, we made the necessary purchases, and detatvhing a sufficient number of ne-n to take the loaded camels hack to the reix'i "i onr menus rw tnr wmnave. we turned our face* toward* !<om Aweles, which we re?i hod in two more days' travel. lhc r*?t of the party went to Kort Tejoo. and arrived there about the Hltta of November.

For me to enter into a hi*tory of the animal would he very like presumption, when there are eminent author* to commit; hut I may he allowed to mention a fear fart* concerning them, gutliered from personal obnervation. The camels used by uij?*ere raid to be superior ones, ami certainly presented a far more sightly appearance than the miserable crnatore* aometimaa exhibited in strolling menage ma With their park saddles on. which are not often removed. Uiev stand aliout eight feet In height. "Pwir general formation does not indicate great mrengtn; their legs being ?l*wter, their nam* especially being very small; and ret ther m?y he loaded with from 1.000 to I .Km |Miunds. which they will carry from morning till night without any sign* of tatigne; tint their fltncea for travel over the Plato* consists In their capacity to endure the want of food and wafer. They do not re.pitre to he fed at all. a* they are con atantlv eating along the mad while travelling, stretching out their long necks and cropping what tvtr of tcnlur? cuics within tbtjr rcicb, without rn * pard to its nature or quality, eating the prickly pear with it* thousand thorns, or even the thorn bush itself, as readily as anything else. To illustrate their utter disregard o! the quality of their food 1 saw one of them, one day, with the jawbone of some animal in his mouth, which had been bleaching, doubtless, for months in the sunshine, and he continued his efforts to chew it for an hour, and that, too, after just filling himself with excellent grass. They are very docile and are easily managed, though one ignmant of their habits would give him self up tor lost when they begin their fierce snarlin gs. Their gait is slow; hut their stride is greater than that of a horse, being about three feet In length, and with steady travelling they will average three miles per hour. They do not kneel to receive their load at the word or command, as has been stated, and in that respect are not as sagacious as the horse, an they do not seem to comprcheud language at all; but with a kii-r-r, ki-r-r (roiling the tongue against the roof of the month), and a gentle pressure on their necks or a pull upon their halters, tney assume tue recumbent position, aucti portions of their bodies as come in contact with the ground while kneeling, or rather crouching (for they get down upon their bellies like a cat or dog), are provided by nature with what are called "callosities" or insensible flesh; thus clearly showing they were designed for the purposes to which tbey are applied. It has also been stated that when too heavily laden they refuse to rise, and utter a piteous cry. I have seen them loaded in one or two instances until they could not rise, but never knew one of them to refuse to make the effort. I have known them to get np with burdens under which their legs trembled as with an ague lit, while they staggered on like drunken men; but unlike any otner animal, they never refuse to go. Their cries are uttered to express their distress or dissatisfaction at all times, when half suppressed they are the same as the lazy grunt of a hog; hnt when enraged it is much more wild, and greatly like that of a Bengal tiger when "stirred up with a long pole." They will go without water from five to ten days, which peculiarly tits them for long journeys over a country where water is scarce. They are a ruminating animal, lying down at night to chew the food which they gather on the road during the day, and consequently do not require to be herded like mules or horses; and better still, they cannot be stampeded by the Indians, which is always their first object in cases of attack on parties crossing the Plains. Their feet, which arc large and nearly round, are soft like cushious, and seemingly not at afl adapted to travelling on flinty ground, or climbing tne sides of mountains; and yet we took them heavily loaded, up and down steeps, where we dismounted and led our mules one by one, and where the earth wiiN sin'wu wun ?nur|)nuuie?, nut uieirieei receiveu no iujury. They seem to he as well adapted to a cold as to a warm climate, for when winter approaches natare provides them with an exceedingly thick and warm coat of hair. Our country hits proved perfectly favorable to a propagation of the species, and the experiment in all respects may be set down as a complete triumph. J pronounce them far superior to any other animal as beasts of burthen. New Patents Issued. The following is the list of patents issued from the United fltates Patent Office, for the week ending Jan.

Ban Francisco, Jan. 5,1858: The President''s .1 essage Approved on the Pacific Railroad an t I (ah (fruitions -- Regiments Raising for Utah? The Mormon Paper in San Francisco Suspended? The Russian Government not Forbidding the H'hale Fisheries in the Waters Within Three leagues of its Possessions Subscriptions for the Relief oj European Sufferers by the India Rebellion? Satisfaction at the Prospect of an Organization of Arizona Territory--Dramatic and Musical Mutters Mrs. John I Food's Engagement ?Jtin. Julia Dean flaynts J art well to tne California Stage. The pant fortnight has been productive of scarcely a ?ingle event of interest beyond the limits of our own Btate, and save the conflagration at Downieville, the present mail will consequently carry away but a meagre summary of news. The dearth of exciting intelligence in local concerns ha-i been amply supplied in the interest which has centered in the measures to be adopted by Congress in reference to the many important questions that are to engage the attention of members. At the present juncture of affairs the people of California look with anxiety to the action that will be taken in reference to the construction of the Pacific Railroad and crushing out the rebellions spirit that has raised its head in Halt Lake Valley. Both these subjects are of all important consequence to us, and both involve the present and futute security of the State. Through the consideration of the President we were put in possession of his first annual message by last mail, it having been despatched from Washington previous to its having been laid before Congress. The grounds taken by Mr. Buchanan in relation to the two questions referred ?to have met universal satisfaction , and hopes are confidently entertained that his suggestions will be seconded and carried out by the national legislature. Mr. Buchanan's preference for the Southern route may give dissatisfaction to men imbued with feelings of hostility to the institution of slavery, but there are many who desire to see slavery confined to its present limits who look upon the Routhern route as one of the best agents to subserve their views. They believe that the tide of emigration, which must inevitably pour into the new ter?/...!,! f! / iiir fsnm Via . ?!...* Iivwi ttuuiu ii'?n uvui aivi nut111 auaicn, inab they would be more accessible to Northern emigrants thai) to those coming from slave States, notwithsUndingthe difference in distance in favor of the latter; that Southerners, in consequence of the embarrassed condition of their property, cannot remove it with ease, and that the provisions of the Kansas-Nebraska act, under these circumstances, will secure to future territories free constitutions. The natural superiority of the Southern route is conceded, and as the agitation of the slavery question is a matter foreign to California soil, no serious objection will Ihj urged in this quarter to the views of Mr. Buchanan as to the proper and best route that should be determined upon. The Mormon war fever has reached a high pitch on this side. From end of the State to the other the din of preparations for an approaching campaign is heard; military companies are organized in most of the counties, and it seems as if the martial spirit, uow dominant, oidy waited an opportunity to display itself on the Held, Instead of in words. It is expected the next steamer will bring a call for voluntiu-rc un/1 fVrmi thu ftffivn utnnu uli-Aa. dy taken, no delay will occur in Hecuring to the government the services of any number of men required to operate against the Mormons from California. Mr. Buchanan's recommendation to raise four additional regiments of course was applauded, and it is concluded at least two will lie raised in this State. The evident advantages of marching a body of troops from here are well known and cannot he too strongly kept in view; and it is thought the character of the State demands that an important share of the duty of sulsluing the rebellion should be entrusted to us. Munyyif the organized military companies under the militia law have signified their willingness to volunteer. Among them the National I ameers, a cavalry corps of this city, have declared their intention of responding to the anticipated call of the general government. The Western Standard, the Mormon newspaper published in San Francisco, has been suspended again, and the editor, Kldcr Cannon, has left for Salt l^tke City. The announcement which waa made some months sin re that the Busman government had issued orders to its naval officers on the Pacific to prevent the catching of whales within three leajpiesof the shores I of its American and Asiatic jsisHossions, proves to he ! untrue. The intelligence reached here by way of Honolulu, and through the same channel we bavo I received the contradiction. It appears that a lltisi man naval officer stated it was the intention of the ; Eu^iercr to prevent whale fishery within the grounds 1 stated at some future time, but the person who re > reived the informatiou misunderstood the matter; benrc the erroneous report. Tlie CommrrrixU Advertiser. published at Honolnlu. says on the subI ject:?The report which waa brought to the Islands in September, by the schooner San Diego, that the Ruts>ian authorities had forbidden the whale fishery in their waters proves to hare Icon premature. ; None of the captains with whom wc have conversed heard any srn-h report, though several of them had been into the port of Ayan. where the Governor rei sides, which is a statioirfor KussqAavur vessels. On the contrary, ft uupibcr Qf wbnBTfwcre taken by several ships ? (hat narhcr, without any reraon1 strance from the authorities. It ta possible that the 1 Busman government may have entertained the project of forbidding tlie whale fishery in their bays, but It will not be likely to enferre it without first j giving official notice to the Preach and American 1 governments. Mr. Booker, the English Consnl at this port, has given notice that subscriptions will be received at his office for the relief of the European suficrcr* by the Indian rvtallion. It I* said British subjects re* sident here hsve contributed liberally, and that the snm raised will be large. There are many iu California who would cheerfully bestow aid for tlie sufferers, but are restrained from doing so when contemplating the horrible barbarities committed bv I the English themselves upon the Sepoys. It is dim cult to realize h"W, at tfila day, a Christian Country I can instigate and approve the commission of rruel I tier and torture* the moat terrible, such an have been perpetrated in llindnetan. not to -speak of the I wholesale butcheries of thousand* of the rebels after the iwttle had ceaeed and resistance for the time at aa end. A decision will be rendered In a few daya by our Supreme Court affirming the legality of the proceeding* taken last fall at the election to legalize the State debt. This derision will settle finally all <pi?w tlon* in reference to the aeanmption of the indebtedneas by the people. llr. P. Mr It. Collins, United Statea commercial agent, who ha* just returned from a viait to the Kti??ian possession* in Asia, leave* to-day for the Ka*ieri$St?te*. He will be able to impart a vast amount of intelligence concerning that important region, and will also ?ive hi* views a* to the means to be adopted to open up trade between California and SibeiW Mr. Collin* proceeds to Washington to render an aor?au? of bi* mission. The mmwwwwdatiim in the President * message for the 'iigaaiaetlon of Arizona territory ha* been receivssd wttb gratification here. The intere*U of tliat promtwiTig region and California are intimately connected. and it Is here anticipated that the g ' mineral wraith of the territory will find a first ntarfcet In thl* city. Itesldes this, several of our leading men expect that in appointing office!* for Arizona, they will be taken fn>m California, where the greatest share of knowledge necenaary to mini mister well ita affair* is to I* found. The ilrsurn ha* not flourished during the pad fortnight a* well a* iW admirers had hoped. Thereaawi ha* principally l-een attributable to the bickerings, plots, and counterplot*, and other jealousies, between the manager*. The Opera House, wiUi an excellent stock company, certainly the best In the Htate. lias languished and lost money?when Miss Inre, an actress who arrived here modestly and without anv pretension, and when she takes her leave of us, will enter the Pa stern theatre* as an accomplished ariittf with a proud reputation earned in California retired and went to riarvamento. ffhe was accompanied by the flower of the Opera House company, and was replaced by Mis* Kmnin Stanley, wli we merit* and capacity were thoroughly displayed on the occasion of her first en gagemrnt. Failing to ex lite nmthgr desire to witness her monologues, Miss Stanley appeared In legitimate comedy and did not succeed. The house was poorly attended throughout ll?e week, and finally rlo**d for the present, last night. Mr*. John Wood, engaged by Mr Maguire at the rate of flO.MO for one hundred nights' performance*. arrived on the steamer John L. Stephens; hnt uafoVtunately left all Iter Istggage on the Isthmns and brought nothing but tiie checks. She has consequently checkmated herself, being obliged to remain UBitmduced dhtil the next steamer arrives. The only fnll house oCffcc week was on Saturday niglit, when the "Continental (>uard*" took a iienefit, tendered them by Mr. Maguire. It Is asserted that Mr. Maguire, in giving tnis benefit, seleeted Hatnrday aiglit beranse Mrs. Julia Da-tn Hayne had pnbliened her la*t complimentary farewell be'ncfit for that evening, and Hwas not so much for assisting the Continentals as to injure Mrs. Hayne* house that ihe Ismcfit wa* given at all. However that may have been, the house wa* well filled, and the enter ainment excellent. At the American the drama ha* been a little more successful.

The lair beneficiary won received with reiterated rounds of applause, testifying the high esteem she iu held in California. The tragedy ot "Urisaldi" was performed, and, apart from the acting of Mra. Hayne and of Mies Edwin, there waa nothing to beast of. Mra. Hayne will be absent from here about two vears ana a half, as she intends to visit Europe before her return. laiat night the American reopened, with the Castilian danteuae, Benorita Soto, a lady whose attractions of person and artistic capacities are doubtless well known lu New York. There is one particular in which we of San Francisco far excel all other parts of the Union, and that is in the possession of a first rate French dramatic company. M'lle Pitron will compare favorably with any artiate in the United States in her role, and though she M not equal to Charlotte Ctishmau in fearful tragedy, nor as captivating as either Mrs. Hayue or Miss fnce in lighter arama, is unequalled lu comedy, the domestic drama, deep womanly pathos, grace of gesture and nrrringe, and striking truthfulness to nature. We could not lose Pitron without deploring it as a great catastrophe. Mile, (pontine is another artiste of great excellence, and as a soubrette or grisctte .cannot be matched in the country.

The London Timet of 6th of January aays:- B'lt even iu the Frame of the Second K (spire political philosophy is not extinct, and there will be men to point oat to him that at present the free countries are also the purest, and that in no Anglo-Saxon community could such works be published or auch pieces performed as daily please the Parisian publicThe London Timet of the 6th ultimo observes:? The opening of an India loan in Kngtand would form a vcrv laid nroredcut. of all the incentives to the loyalty of the native* that of making them <>ur creditor* ih the leant douhtful, while, on the other hand, among an Impulsive, secretive and averlclous people no temptation to aiaoontont or treachery could be stronger than that created by the idea that they are annually taxed to send dividend* to wealthy claimants in other countries. It matter* not that the principal on which this interest ih payable may have lieon expended for the exclusive Irenetit of the population. Everything of that sort m soon forgotten or denied, while the interminable afterpayments excite increased dissatisfaction each additional year of their continnanee. A kind of manifestation, which has hitherto been only seen in Switzerland for political causes, has just taken place at (leneva, relative to the present financial crisis. A placard, emanating from citizens Islonging for the most part to the manufacturing class es, convoked a public meeting for December 2#, at a place called theCoulouvreniere, and at the appointed hour a compact crowd filled the room. Tne question of the present crisis was discussed with the utmost calmness. The meeting, which consisted of about 1.500 persons. Hstenwd with the greatest attention and interest to the speeches of several persons who endeavored to show that the position or manufacturers in Geneva celled for exceptionable measures to ward off the effects of the crisis. A proposition, cmunutiiig from MM. I'erricr and Cnrsat, to have a commission appointed, consisting of delegates from the various corporations of workmen, and charged to examine what ought to he done in the present circumstances, was adopted by an immense majority. The traffic receipts on railways in the united kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland for the year 1857 amounted to ?25,672,4(15 on lines that published their truffle receipts weekly, and to about ?490.000 on those that do not, making together ?24,162 465. The traffic receipts for the year 1856 amounted to ?22,095,500, showing an increase of ?1,16(1.966, or 5-1 per cent. Were it not for the fulling off' In the traffic from the depression of trade during the last quarter, it is probable that the increase would have been betweeu ?.'100,000 and ?100,000 (BOM. The mileage over which the traffic was conveyed win 9,171 miles, and the cost of the railways, including everything, about ?507,153.666, being at the rate of ?33,492 per mile. The cost of the 8,761 miles of n,;lu.,v 1, ...

From Teheran we learn that a royal order has just been issued prohibiting the entry into Persia of the shawls of Cashmere. The ISovernors of Meched and Kirnutn have received instructions to use ail their efforts in developing the ancient native manufacture of shawls, and in seeking to improve the fineness and quality of the fabrics. The Governor of Kirman states that this brunch of manufacture was once prosperous, and that each shawl fetched from 100 to r>0 touiuauM, and that the 1 ite decline in the shawl manufacture is not attributable to tlio neglect ol the authorities. A letter from Teheran, in the Pren?t <V Orient, gives a long account of the late festivities in honor of the proclamation of the heir presumptive to the Persian throne:?"It would l?e impossible," says the writer. " to give an idea of the emulation that existed in the decoration of the twelve separate quarters of the city. During the three nights of the festivities the illuminations were superb. Music,songs and entertainments of ail kinds never cea<ed. The consumption of sherbets an! sweetmeats was some thing enormous. The Ministers of Kussia, Kncland and France promenaded the great square, aud were received with loud acclamations." The city of Hamburg and its commerce have latterly attracted so much notice that some information as to the extent of its trade, and whence that is derived, cannot fail to lie interesting even to those who are not engaged in similar pursuits. The following statement, in whirh a comparison is made wtwe*n me imvtu m?m varum* places during the past vear nnd that which preceded, may therefore be found to be worthy of attention:? Counlriet.

Tne Paris DtbnU say* that the Carlist party in Spain and Prance is actively intriguing to procure the abdication of Queen Isabella. This party have apian for marrying the Infanta to the eldest grandson of Don Carlos, whom they would have declared king, getting the regency into their own hands. This scheme for a tush n is completely frustrated by the birth of a Prince of the Astoria*; but the party, nothing daunted, have how adopted a new set of tactics. An official return, published by the Paris Post Ofli<?s, shows that the number of letters distributed in France, which in 1H47 was only 127,480,000, had increased in 1PS6 to 251.997.700, exclusive of 2,867,904, wnirh remained in the dead letter office, in consequence of defective or illegible addresses.
