E NE' NE HIGHLY INTERESTING INTELLIGENCE FROM THR TERRITORY OF CALIFORNIA. SPECIAL DE8PATCHI38 TO THE NEW YORK HERALD OFFICE. St Look, Ang\ 30. 1817. Laat night, Gen. Kearney, accompanied by Major Sword, Captains Cook and Turner, Lieut Radford, and a nnmber of other gentlemen arrived from California, which place they left on the 18th of June, making the trip in the unprecedented ihort period of sixty-eight day*. They came by the way of Fort Kail, and met with but little of ineident on the way. Col. Fremont was of the party aa far aa Fort Leavenworth, and I* ex peoted In the city, to-day. He ! under arreet. The mow in the California mountain* was found very deep In plaoea?from two to fifteen feet deep. A number of the bodie? of thoae emigrant* who perlahed laat winter, were found and burled. The aufferlnga of this band of pioneers moat have been dreadful. Of the whole number, one only survived, and he lived on the bodies of his companions for many days. It Is moreover suspected that this Individual, Kingsburgh murdered a Mrs. Donner, one of the party, for her fat. He almost conessed aa much. Oen. Kearney left Monterey on the 31st of May, with an escort of 13 men of the Mormon Battalion His command. including Col. Fremont, and nineteen of the topographical department, was afterwards swelled to sixty Capt. Mason, of the First Dragoons, was left In command, as Governor and Commander in Chief. (Jen. Kearney on the eve of his departure, ordered Lt. Col. Burton to prooeed by sea to Lower California, and take possession of that country. In the harbor of Monterey were anohored ships of war Columbus, Congress, Portsmouth, Warren and brie. Commodore Blddle waa in command. Cm. Shubrlck, with the Independence and Cyane we-e in the (Jul! blockading Ouaymas and Mazatlan. A great number of Oregon emigrants were met on the road, numbering ever one thousand wagons. It was thought that some of them would be compelled to winter in the mountains. AKOUS. Monterey, California, June 1, 1847. We find ourselves in a state and situation both strange and peculiar; we belong to no nation and are governed by no laws. We do not belong to Mexico, because Ungle Sam has taken us away from that nation; we do not be. long to the United States, simply because until there is some definite treaty between the two nations, Uncle Sam has no right to this oountry. As Vattel says, ' a conquered p> ople must, for the time being, be governed by the conqueror, by the laws he finds in existence. The United States government cannot allow us evea a form of a oode of laws. 'Tis said, aftd some be neve me awry, luti .Mexico nan laws la California, but a<* they cannot be foand, and the oldest resident have no remembranoe of them, either in theoey or practice, we must live on us formerly, in Uwlets blessedness. We h?ve, however, a fair supply of lawyers the present ye*r, and each one can produee the laws of his native State, and urge on the Aloaldelheir adoption as most applicable to thu oase in hand. In former days we Hold and bartered without taking notes, and lent or borrowed hard dollars and gold ounces without having any suspicion that an obligation was ot any importanoe; we even paid and received suoh lent money without taking mortgagrs on our neighbor's house or land; we are yet in our iuiancy, and can barely understand the real necessity of both lender and borrower paying an ounce each to a lawyer to make the bargain safe and good. We find by those who left home of late years,that wn ar<) all right smart behind the march of intellect and civilization of the other side of the Rocky Mountains. I am no prophet, yet can imagine th t the code of which we are learning respecting debts, will increase the borrowers, and have a sensible diminution in the number of lenders or sellers. The town of Monterey Is slowly Increasing, the inhabitants are yet content to move on as fast ae they saiely can, whilst tho*e of other places think as fast as they any way can la best, (ioods are falling in prioes; produce from the Kanehos rising; for instance, a tanega (two bushels) of beans, In 1844, would be required to purchase an arobe, (26 pounds) of sugar: this year the case is reversed, making four to one in tne Kanchero's favor. All the young emigrants ot 1813, boldly and promptly took up arms to put down the Mexicans and Californians in the revolt of October, 18ltt, and saw Commodore Stockton and Col. Fremont conquerors throughout the territory. Anticipating that with the pay for their servioes, and for guns, powder, lead, mules, horses, wagons, harness, Sco., they gave up to prosecute the war, they should return to the Sacramento with funds to pui-ohase lands and stock; they may be woefully disappointed. I hope not; a year will tell; If It proves as 1 tear, may the right man bear the blame. For ten years California has been governed by many a chief and commander, rather too many at a time, making a sad state of afiairs. 1 fear we shall iollow Mattel too closely. Uen Kearney, Cols. Cook and Fremont, Capt. Turner, of the army, Lieut Radlord, United States navy, are leaving here/or the States. Commodores fiiddle and Stockton are in this port, and also the "Portsmouth," 1 .Varr?-n," -'Dale," "Erie," "Lexington." The '-Indepen dence," and ' Cyane," are off Maiatlan. The "1'orts Luoutn, ' In Marcn or April, took poaieasion of the American ship "Admittance," Captain Peterson, at Cspe San Lucas, on Huaplolon of wanting to land a cargo ot New Orleans ootton at San Bias, and for cqmmunicating with the enemy. rolitioal affairs In California are quiet, and 1 hope they may remain so. PAISANO. Hauta Barbara, Upper California,) May 15th, 1847. I dropped you a letter a few days since, but in this land, not yet penetrated by opposition malls and cheap post offices, it is always safe to send duplicates, and a private bag being made up for New York directly via Rocky Mountains, I eagerly embrace the opportunity to give you and your five hundred thousand, readers an Idea of things as thev at Dresent exist here, and mv " Drivate opinion''in regard to this famed "El Dorado of the Weit." Everything Is quiet here now. For the last three weeks, however, rumor has been continually fallowing rumor to the effect that Oen. Buatamente, Oen. Flores, or Oen. Castro was marching through Lower California and oomlcg up here to dispossess " Ion Americanos," the raacally invaders of the soil of California. Some of these stories have eome with suoh aa air of probability, that the oommandants of militaty posts have held themselves in constant readiness lor an attack, and the Congress, with Commodore Stockton, went to St. Thomas, near the coast of Lower California, where It was said some ammuuition and military store had been landed, having been conveyed acroM the Oulf from (Juaymar. But there is uo danger to be apprehended from the arrival of (Jen. iJuMtauieute. 1 fancy his valuable services will be required on his own soil about these times. Klores hav, by mis time, I doubt not, seen the " evil of his ways," and the utter (utility of any further attempt at rebellion, and the last that was heard of poor Jose (Jastro was that he was in Sonora, siok and forsaken, endeavoring by some means to procure a passage to California, there to rejoin Inn friend* ana family, l astro, by the way, is one or the most respectable lellows in the country, and has been awiully belied In some instances. Thorn is no man who would indie the Californlans to arms quicker than he. The Atnurioau military foroe in California Is entirely too great to allow for a moment the idea of any insurrection on the part of the Californlans alone. Capt. 'J oiup. kins I* at Monterey with two companies of regulars. Two companies of Col Stevenson's oommand are at San Francisco, under .\1ajoi Hardie ; one at Sonoma, three companies at Santa Barbara, under Lieut. Col. II 8. Burton, while Col Stevenson himself has just gone to the Pueblo de los Angeloe, with two companies to relieve t.ol. Cook, who has 3JO Mormon infantry troops, and eighty dragoons under his command. With tbete. and the force of the navy on tbacoast.we could muster from two to three thousand American troops in the country. 1'here is not the slightest possible danger of any further dilticullles springing from the Californians themselves. It is a mistaken idea, however, tbat a majority of them are Tavorabty deposed tow.r Js the United States government. Muo.i as they detest Mexican rule here, tbej would prefer It at present to the American, and at the tirst eniranoe of a Mexican force into the country they would rise almost en tnuttt. and make one desperate effort to expel us from their soil. We are at present existing under a curiously mixed government, liy the treaty of peace entered Into by Col. Fremont after the battle at the Pueblo, It was aooedeJ to the Callfomlans that the* should not be reouired to LaWa iho .?tH nr.i ieglance to our government, at lewt during the war with .Mexico. Although the Governor of California is an Amsrioau, the country ia governed by Mexican laws, and all the offices In the gift of the people filled with Mexican subject*. What we want here Lumedlately is a firm, permanent territorial governor and government. It ha* changed hands so m?ny times that It has been almost Impossible to keep the run of it. First came Commodore bloat, who after hoisting our flag at Monterey and San Francisco, waa relieved by Commodore blockton, who, of oourse waa Governor of California. Soon after Col. Fremont received the appointment from Com. Stockton, and after a short-lived glory of a few weeks, upon the arrival of Gen. Kearney, the reins or government were passed into his hanus. All this, be it recollected, has transpired in the short space of ten months, and another change is now being made. Gen. Kearny being on the point of returning to the United dtaies, leaviug Col. Mason In charge here. Bo we go. In the meantime there has been a continual Interesting squabble; between the numerous oomiuodnres on tue ooaat, and Col Fremont and (jU men refused to reoognne Uen. Kearny as governor of the territory, if our triend. the government at home, will give us something stable here, y the conciliatory plan whloh Is now being pursued with the Inhabitants, we will soon have the oountry and Its people so flraly la our possession aad confldenoe that W YO W YORK, FRIDAY MOR we might bid Mexioo and any of her future allies dofianoe should an attempt ever be mad* to re-c?nquer this soil. 80 mueh foaAe passing thought* of the day. The intermit felt in tnh oountry generally, lta oommrrclal and agricultural advantage, and lta people and their customs, 1* perhaps erea greater than in lta political affair*. In the**, I must candidly confes* I have been considerably disappointed, and would caution others how tiiey indulge too Urgely in Imagining*, and give too ready a credence" to the highly colored de*orlp uoi.b wnirh mere ptMrri tbruugb have given of tbe country. All the ideas formed of It ar" exaggerated. It is no "Eldorado" altar all, and the Muna requisites for happiness and wealth are needed here ai In any other portion of the globe Tbe air U composed of the same gasses. and tbo " sweat of the brow" ii required to oause tbe varth to bring forth its fruit* In due deacon " The climate has been moat misrepresented Instead of an eternal spring hero, we hare found " tl ulru 101a," as the Spaniards say. When we arrived at Han Francisco, in March, the weather was as bleak as on the Atlantic coast at the same season, and during a stay of three was constantly oold and foggy. A sharp cutting wind blows into the harbor at all seasons of the year, which renders a residence there very uncomfortable. since we hav* been In Santa Barbara, we have scarcely seen the sun, and the lovely " merr* May" haa thus fur be n beclouded in mist and fog. No Paradise this. 1 can assure you. But there ia certainly another side to t e picture. A Tstt extent of country in this latitude like this, containing it aupertlce or ISO.OOiNsquare miles, must afford every varioty of soil for agricultural purposes, and a coast of thu length of all California, must b? of a decided advantage here on the Paciflo The whole ooast is made of a rugged range of hills, between which are flue well watered valleys, and baok of wbloh are the moat beautiful and extensive plains imaginable. The waters of the Sacramento. San Joachim, the Colorado, and their tributaries, water the soil; and their banks are lined with the rich verdure of tbe green grass, and. in the cultivated pastures, with field* of waving grain. Near the coast, hundreds of thousands of cattle and horses aregraxing upon the plains and table lands, while in the interior they are roving in their Dative wildness, yet to be brought into subjection by clvlllxed man. The soil of the plains is a rich vegetable loam, uncommonly productive; and, with labor and care may be made to yield as no soil in the United States can. Ou the coast are several harbors of safety and oapaolty. San Kranoisco, probably the finest iu the world, is of sufficient sise to oontain the navies of the wnole globe ridhig safely at anohor in it The country north of it in tbe Sacramento ralley, is well adapted to grain andgrax1D1T.

Farther down in Sao Diego, equal lu safety, but uot in Bile, to San Francisco, while Monterey and Santa Barbara, and San I'edro, have magnificent bayi, protected from wind* at moat feasous of the year. But J must stop. The mall bag Is about doing, and I will only add, that I have no doubt that this will yet be a '* great country," In population, happinees. aud plenty, but it must be in the hIow program*, which time makes, and uot in such rapid strides us we have been apt enthusiastically to believe. I shall continue to write every favorably opportunity, keeping you informed of pacing events, with touches upon the manners and customs and mode of life ot the people. Yours, K. O. B. Nrw Milfohd, August 3fi, 1847. TKe Valley of tke. Huuialonic. You may be surprised to hear from me at this place. 1 had heard the valley of the Huusatonlc so often spoken of an containing beautiful mountalu scenery, that I determined to spend a day or two in this region, which though little known, contains much scenery cf wild and romantic beauty. You enter thia valley by one of ihe beat constructed railroads in the country, so I judge from the regular, | uniform and agreeable motion of the elegant cars In which you travel. 1 have passed over many railroads, but over none liave I ever passed with more ease and oomfort. A trip upon it is positively delightful The New Yorker may reach this beautiful valleyjn five hours oy the way of Bridgeport. On returning from the springs, on a Northern or Western tour, the traveller may enter It by the way of Albany and Went Stookbridge in about two hours, aud this beautiful town In two luore. Then a flue hotel has been lately tilted up, with spacious and well furnished rooms, and In all respects adapted to the comfort of tin visiter. There is probably no house in this seotion of Connecticut, more oonveuiently managed or better oouduoled New Milfold is village of banker* ?scarcely surpassed for intelligence or hospitality in the country. On approaching the town from the south, you pas* through the limited, but exceedingly beautiful, valley of a small stream railed the Still-river. This valley, whloh waa evidently, in time long past, the bed of a considerable lake, present* some interesting rural (Gentry, and contain* teveral extensive and wtll cultivated farm*. At the point where the railroad comes upon the bank of the Housatonlc, there Is a consi lerable tall in the river, and a remarkable passage worn by the waters of the onoe lake and the river, through a mountain ridge nearly two hundred feet high, about forty feet wide, and In length from one to two hundred rod*.

Distressing Dktaii-s of the Ship Fevf.r in Canada.?A short tune since a lint* intelligent Kngltsh lad, about 14 years of age, wan brought by an inhabitant of this city to the Secretary of the Hoard of Health, accompanied by seven brother* and maters He ?uid bin name was ilall, that he left tiu lather, whose name was Kobinion Hall, and his mother, Hick of the ship fever, at the quarantine hospital at lirosse Isle; that hin father bad supplied him with ?f> to euable him with his little charge to reach an uncle who reBidcs in 1'tcaermg, near Toronto. He fdded that every farthing was expended, and be did not know how to get on to his plaoe of destination. If this had been all the difficulty the poor boy had to encounter, it was soon surmounted by the emigrant agent here immediately granting a free passage for the whole of them; untortuualely the contagion of the fever was lurking in the veins of all but one of their family, and the next day displayed itself by taking down three out of the eight, who were immediately sent to the hospital here. On arriving at Toronto the lad himself, and three others, were attacked with the name disease, and only one reached the abode of the uncle. One of the three left In Kingston Is dead, and a second it is believed eannot survive; the third will be forwarded to the uncle so soon as he is able to go; the cases of the three In Toronto are said to be very doubtful. The parents were respectable people, and had with them about In money, with whioh they intended occupying soinu land wh'lch the uucie had engaged for them near his own residence. Oat of a family of ten, only one has reached the plaoe to which they were all looking as to the abode of competence and happiness. f?.-liii<-? writing the above we have heard from the medical otlicer at lirosse IMe, who has most kindly attended to the application. The mother is dead, and the lather is in a very low and doubtful state. The secretary of the board says that the heartrending scenes of wretohedlieHn and misery which hn has been called to behold never would be believed, and cannot be described: widows wringing their hands in despair for the loss of their husbands, and men for the loss ef their wives. Above a hundred orphans totally destitute and friendless, of all aces, are now in the orpuan shed here, and thirty or forty widows who know uot where to go, or what to do; gnttlng employment is out of the question, D-oauso, howewr much they may be wanted ss servants, 'such is the tear of contagion tnat no family wiM admit them to it. ?

AuKutt IS. 1847.?Our intelligence from the capital reach")* to the beginning of the present month, of which the following Is a summary: ? i na ? ourii-n 01 lienerals. convoked by Santa Anna, were of opinion that General Scott should be attacked In his positions; bat Santa Anna Mid that It would b? bettor to diapatoh a division. composed of ten tbouiand men, to taktrtpoat between Perot* and Puabla, for the purpose of intercepting the trains and convoys that were maroblng toward the latter plaoe. and thus to get possession of the resources which the Amerloons expected; and further, he advised that another. division of equal strength (ten thousand men) take up a position between Puabla and the city of Mexico, the remainder of their forces to remain and cover the capital. Santa Anna's plan waa adopted At the present moment (the beginning of Augnat,) there Is in the city of Mexico a force of 35 000 men.and as that under General Scott does not exreed li.000 of whom a certain uumber are Invalids, I through ill health, It lg improbable, from the rumors which are la circulation, t hat the latter will quit Puabla until he has received considerable reinforcements. " This," says the Patriot correspondent. " is the curreut belief In the capital, although here it is announced that General Scott took up his line of march on the 7th Inst. " It apoea*a certain that General Taylor will commence his maroh on San Luis Potosl. at the end of the present mopftfc. although, from positive information received her^, okdrill find himself obliged to await the arrival of ruins Idwrable relnforcuments, since the Mexican forces that a A* now watching his movements have lately beenkiuoh Increased ' There i4 % general opinion at the capital that Santa Anna is in bonnlvauoe with the Cabinet at Washington. and that "he is uispc.std to make peace ou any pretext whatever; hut, to the present time, nothing positive tln-reon in npwn, and it is very probable that at th< latest iiiomeMkin this ease, there will be a reaction, slnct the majorttyrV^t is asserted are disposed to lose all rather then agree to a pacific arrangement. In the pre. sent circumstance!. It Is almost taken for granted thai Gen. Scott and Mr. Trist have a mutual understanding secretly, with Santa Anna. I " I have heard say, that it has been represented to the I United Staled Government that it is highly necessary to reinforce tils point, since it is feared, and not without reason, that oue fine day, when such an event is least thought of, there will be a general rising, and the whole ot tha \ merieans here will be butohered. In Vera Crux, as well, they are not without similar fears." M. S. THE IIKTI'RN OF OEM. J'AREDES. The New Orleans Palria, of the :J&th ult.. has a long article on affairs In Mexico, in reference te the return of Paredrs. Tbey refer to the dialogue held between I'aredes and the Vera Crusan merehaut, (already published in the N. V. Herald.) and say that they have thought from the first, that the sentiments then uttered by Pareiles, were the trne ones that influenced his return. Our readers, they say, will doubtless remember that after the battle of Bueua Vista, there was published in Mexico an aot of oblivion for ail politloal offences, without any exoeption whatever. Our attention was attracted by this, and at the time we mentioned that Paredes might avail himself of it, and return to his un urateful country again, to take up arms in her defence; hut we did not think be would have ventured to enter by any of the port* which ware guarded by the American forces, when Mr. folk had contributed do essentially to bis fail in August. 144A. * * For our part, we do no tbelieve that England will give aid openly to General Paredes,; or any other Mexican chief; for ii Great Britain were disposed to aid them in their conflict before this, the effeots of the supluo malice o| John Bull would have beeu apparent. General Paredes without fearing the imminent risks whiah he ran, determined to make his voyage in an K.ngllsh steamer, foi doubtless he is well persuaded that that is the nation which the United states respect! most, notwithstanding the oontlnued iraourv* of some papers. Our respeotad Tampion correspondent insinuates, thai General Paredes has always had great influence in thi Northern States, and on different occasions it has beei Hbown that these Slates know how to properly appre oiate his valor and patriotism. The honor or Paredes li not doubt'ul, as Hauta Anna's is ; in the latter even hii intimate tViends do not confide Thus it will not bi Strang*, if the six Slates who formed a coalition to op pose peace, take advantage of the only opport?nit' which remain* to tbem to carry their determination int" e eot. * In case Paredes does not arrive in tlm to prevent Scott's entry Into Mexico, it is probabl that he will go towardsthe state of Guadalnjaru, of whlcl lie is a native, and which forms one of those leagued to g?tber against peaoe, and there gather from it and th neighboring Statfes a more respectable and better dit posed foice than Bant* Anna now has at his disposition If Gen. Scott ha* entered Mexioo and made a peace wit! Santa Ann*, or the government formed and ruled by hiiz Paredes will then hasten to gather an army and attaal the invaded capital, at the head of an entirely indepen dent foroe. which will contend against the American and the Mexloan friends of Hanta Anua and peace There is ooly one hope of salvation le t to the Americans and here some paper* have hinted that it if the only om In which they trust; it is that Santa Anna may continui to be the daadly enemy of Parodes, and that he may sue ceed in getting possession of his person and shut him u] jn a prison, or, ooward-llke, assassinate him as he die viejla. Ia> this latter ease the consequences would b< almost a*4arieus, a* Paredes having many friends, ant etipecially the clergy, there would arise an avenging part; in Mexico, against which both the Americans and Santi Anna would have to contend The La fatrin then goe on to speak of the new position of the State of Hondurai and says that it Is very natural to suppose that whatere forces go from Guatemala to assist the Mexicans willjoil the war party, and thus this will be another souroe c annoyance and danger to the American forces whei ouco they are in the capital.

J he reMiript of Sir Robert J'eel Is supposed to torm a considerable item in the sutyects of consideration, and an effective opposition is expected tosuch a proposition. My '>wn opinion Is, that. If proposed, it will be recommended by other and morn substantial adjuncts, which may eff. cl a change. There has been a tenant right meeting in Aleaih ? There is to bs a great one In 'I ippetary. The minds of people are becoming every day more directed to the eonsideration of this Important queetlou The following . resolution was adopted on Tuesday. by the LiumiIoK grand jury, " that this grand jury being oonvlnced that, In the present distressing state of Ireland, it is of UM utmost importance to make every effort Ar the euooara^ement of Irish manufactures, reoommi nd- ube use of articles of Irish manufacture In all Institution* uuder their control, as far as such use mat be consistent with convenience and economy sign* u by W. bmlth O'Brien, foreman. This resolution is but an embodiment of the feeling at present existing, and every day becoming more widely diffused through the country, M tbe necessity lor tbe encouragement and use of articles of home manufacture. Tbe oommkWe of the Royal Dublin Society have published their report on the late exhibition of Irub manufactures, which proved, as they state, that our artisans and manufacturers possess sufficient energy aud elasticity of character to enable them not only to brew misfortune, but to rise above It, and to produce specimens of native manufacture superior in number, lu variety, and merit, to those which have been exhibited on any former occasion In reference to the facilities that ex 1st tor the establishment of a more extended commerce, two railway bills have passed this session I one fci waking a line from Klllarny to Valencia, thus com Hating the line from Dublin to tbe most westerly point of Kurope ; the other for making a lire from Athlon* W Ualway, thus completing the Hue from Dublin to l?alway, the shortest land journey from the Irish Sea to the Atlantic k'.ither of those great works onee complete,we might calculate, with cortaiuty, on the American paoketa having stations on our western coasts. American im rcnants might have stores aud warehouse* there, a? J Ireland might become the depot of tbe commerce of tbe old and new world. The letter concludes by requesting the aid of Americans, to approach tbem more nearly, and unite our couutry with by the bonds of reolprosal commerce aud mutual advantage. The secretary of the Dublin .Natural History Society, Mr. Andrews, has addressed a letter to Admiral Mr Thomat Usher, K. C. H , in whluh he submits a eonris* outliue of the features and resources of the western coasts for Ashing purposes. This letter is written with a view to stimulate the lormatlon of an inchoate com pany, aud affords ample data to prove the remnnotntlve ii'turns that mav be uxnaatad Th? m?.j ?^ lisbes two letters from over sea, one from Mr Washing* ton Hunt, who proposes the loan of half a million of dollars for the relief of Irish distress. Kor ourselves, ww trust that the tain of Irish distress U now nearly past, And that, for the future, we will look to America tor advice anil assistance to develope our resources and extend our commerce,not to save ua from perishing or to supply our wants. The accounts from the country districts, regarding the cropa, somewhat vary. The Cork Cunttiluliun mentiona, for a certainty, the appearance of the blight In the potatoe, though In a very mitigated form.
