We take the following from the Galveston
News of the Kith: Pic.
Mr. Jnmes Mnrlin formerly of St. Louis
Mo. visited our sanctum yesterday inoruitig
un his return from Cnliforr.in. Mr. Martin
crime passenger on the steamer Yncht from
Brazos Sniitiago nnd has favored us with
borne ititcicstitig information in relation to the
gold region. He left bun Francisco on the
221 of March on the steamer Cuhforni.i and
arrived at Mazatlnn in fomtcen day.. Thdice
Mr. Martin made the journey through Mexi-
co to Roma on the Rio Grande in twcnly-
fivo days on horseback. He travelled thrmi
Durango Paris. Saltillo.and Montcrey.tncet-
jng tilth no obstacle during the whole jour-
ney Mr. Mnitinsays he met about five hun-
dred Americans between Dm ango and Rnraa
on then way to California. They all ap-
peared well pleased with the route. Mr.
Martin states that the expenses of the jour-
ney from San Francisco to the Rio Grande
including sixty -five dollars passage on the
t-teanur to Mazatlnn amount to about one
hunurcd and fiftv dollars.
Mr Martinmas been eleven- mouths in Cal-
ttornia. hitt brings no gold with him. He
was k Jurins .1 great portion of the time
and was advised i y his physician to return to
the United States"
The mini i: had gone to work before Mr.
Martin left and it was estimated that about
one hundred thousand person were engaged
in digging- culii As much as seven ounces
ot pure gold hus teen collected frequently-
in a day by one person while at the same
time many persons work vv hole day s w iihout
making anything. As an estimate of what
labor is worth at the mines Mr. Martin says
the Mexicans and Mexican peons refuse fif-
teen dollars a day and found. There are
three placers each divided from the other by
tjndy ridges a few miles wide. The first
plaeir is five leagues square the second thir-
teen leagues square and third twenty-seven
leagues square. Gold is also found in the
mountains; but few or none go to the moun-
tains after it.
The present popu'ation ot San Francisco
is thought to be about 75000 a much larg-
er number than the buildings can accommo-
date. Many live in tents and1 hundreds sleep
on the contiguous sand hills and live as they
best can. There were five American ladies
in all in San Francisco. In the poit there
vverc twenty-six vessels all abandoned by
their hands and unable to leave. The two
vessels belonging to the navy in that port
were also deserted.
There is no law either civil or military. in
the whole country. Gen. Smith the ricv
Governor is without any force at his com-
mand the soldiers having all deserted nnd
has nothing but his title to distinguish him
from any other person being altogether pow-
erless. Murders were of very common oc-
currence in the gold region but the murder-
ers wefc either not detected or no pains ta-
ken to discover who they vverc. These
crimes were perpetrated in almost every in-
stance for the gold the parties possessed.
Two or three vessels from New Yoik and
Boston had arrived at San Francisco with
cargoes of merchandise but had not began
to dispose of them previous fo March 22d.
Mr. Martin conversed with two of the three
men of whom the newspapers give accounts
as returning vvifli J. 300000 in gold. They
stated that they had been engaged in the
mines thirteen months and in other respects
Mr. Martin's statements concerning them
confirm the published reporls.
W'DDnns. young Tipncrarv widow
Nelly McPhee I think they called her was
courted and actually had an offer from Too-
Icy O'Shanc -on the way to her husl aid's
funeral. "She accepted of course"said Gross-
man. No she didn't " said Smith. "Too-
Iej dear" said she 'rc too late; four
waaks ago it was I shook hands wi' Patty
Sweeney upon it that I would have him in a
decent time after poor McPhee went anun-
derboard." "Well" slid Groosman "wid-
ows of all nations are much alike. There
was a Dutch woman whose husband Died-
nck Van Pronk died and left her inconsola-
ble. He was huriedfon Copp's Hill. Folks
said that grief would kill that widow. She
had a figure of wood carved that looked
very like her late husband and placed it in
her bed nnd constantly kept it there for sev-
eral months. In about half a ) ear she be-
came interested in a young shoemaker who
took the length of her foot and finally mar-
ried her. He had visited her not more than
a fortnight when the servants told her the)'
were out of kindling stuff and asked what
fhould be done. After a pause the widow
replied in a very quiet way: "Maypc it ish
veil enough now to sphlit up old Van Pronk
vat ish up sthair."
From Corpus Chrisli.
A deputation of gentlemen from Corpus
Christi consisting of Col. Kinney General
Cazncan Win. Mann Esq. E. Ohler Esq.
andvseveral others arrived here on Tuesday
5th inst. on a visit to the c6mmander-in-chief
of this post relative to the recent dep-
redations committed by the Indians in that
portion of the State between the Nueces and
Rio Grande. The continued depredations by
the Indians with impunity at Corpus Christi
and its vicinity has almost destroy cd that
fair portion ofour State depopulating neigh-
borhoods and the settlements that were just
springing into existence. Near Corpus
Christi and San Patricio they have murdered
citizens within gun shot of those places and
driven away large quantities of stock besides
destroying" other property to a considerable
amount. The loss of Col. Kinney alone is
several thousand dollars; at one rancho be-
longing to that gentleman they drove ofTonc
hundred and twenty head of gentle horses
besides killing and driving away a great ma-
Wc'are gratified to learn that General
Harney with his usual energy and prompt-
ness has responded to their call and ordered
as we understand all the disposable force
within his power to that section of the State
which only consists of part of one company
of dragoons. The fnefiiclency of our force
on the frontier is too clearly demonstrated in
the present instance.although they may count
in numbers; but when you cast your eyes
over the sick list besides manv other causes
nnd deficiencies and then consider that there
are but few mounted men is is perfectly ab
surd to expect protection from such a sotrrce
Another Gutrace. A Mexican named
"Recendes arrived yesterday from Matamor-
os icompany with four families who intend
settling here. On Wednesday evening they
encamped this side of the Arroyo Colorado
and while the men were out getting their cat-
tle together a party of Indians attacked the
ramp and carried off four women two of
them married and a female chtlu two yearn
old. They took an old woman whipped her
nearly to death and let her eo. When the
men returned tho Indians had been gone
some time and thev saw no more of them or
their unfortunate captives.
The same man reported that the old and
extensive Rancho dc Rosalia above the town
of Santa Rita on the Rio Grnudc had been
entirely broken up and the inhabitants were
making their wny to Corpus Christ!. The
whole Rio Grande country with the excep-
tion of the luigo towns i-? said to be complete-
ly descited and the Indians roam at will kill-
ing men and beasts wherever they meet them.
The inhabitants worn casting longing eyes to
the Government for relief nnd we hope it
may arrive before it
is loo late. Corpu
From the Cot pus Chtisli Star 2f May
The Indians have committed no fresh dep-
redations in this section that we have heard
of since our last. The horses stolen from
San Patricio appear to have been taken by a
band of white thieves mixed with negroes-and
Mexicans. I hey were pursued by a party
of the citizens who kept them in view for ten
miles but being badly mounted were unable
to overtake them.
A gentleman in this town has received a
letter fiom a Mexican friend at Laredo
which gives rn account of a rencontre with
the Indians near th.it place He ays that a
party of fifteen Painnnchcs rrnved at
Rancho Capitanco and enrrird off a
about twelve years old whose father and re
lations immediately called together the in-
habitants of the other ranchos and pursued
them but being badlv equipped their force
giadually diminished until only eight of their
men were left who being friends of the un-
fortunate captive nnd excited by a feeling of
anger resolved to pursue and punish them
severely. On the 7th they overtook them at
a place near the old Rancho de Dolores
near Laredo nnd altei n fight of more than
an hour rescued the prisoner. The Indians
had three killed and the Mexicans three sipanlla which has entirely cured me of Rheuina-
