???m TH] NO. 5360. CALIFORNIA INTELLIGENCE. ' Sailing or tub steamship crescent cmr?great ' EXCITEMENT. , The fine steamship Crescent City, Captain Stod- I dard, took her departure for Chagres, yesterday < afternoon, at a few mmutes before two o'clock, , smidbt the firing of cannon, and vociferous cheers i from an immense multitude. She had been an- 1 noui ced to sail atl o'clock; but owing to the great number of her passengers, and the confusion prevailing, it was found impossible to start at the hoar appointed. About noon, crowds began to assemble on the pier; some through curiosity, others to bid farewell to friends and relatives. Among the number present, we observed many ladies come to take what eeemed a last farewell of those most dear to ttietn. ine excitement on me do u ana pier waa very high, and a general feeling of hilarity pervaded the assemblage. " Is any man ' on the dock dead broke 1" cried one of the passengers, at the top of hiB voice. A darkey. > standing near by, replied "1 am." He had scarcely answered, when a halt dollar struck ' his cocoa-nut, and nearly brought him down, , which he instantly resented by pocketing the insult. The individual who threw the nioney, thought, no doubt, it was worse than useless tor a ' man to take silver into a gold region. The scene whs extremely picturesque, and it was amusing to behold the various dresses ot the passengers, at- ! tired us they were, some in India ruboer, some in differently colored oil cloth?white, black, green, yellow?and some of no color at all. Here w is one i with an India rubber tent; another with a life pre- ] server as large as a balloon, and a pair ot water- i proot boots large enough to cover half his car- i cuss. Every fashion of hat and cap was put ' in requisition?Dutch, French, Italian, Chinese, ' Spanish, down to the latest California slouch. . Kifles, muskets, shot guns and revolvers, were to j be seen strapped to the backs and sides of the ad- ( venturers, in a profusion thut-eemed to indicate an i invasion i 1 a different character to that of a gold I region. The steamship Hermann, lying on the 1 other side of the pier, was filled with spectators. 1 Her decks being covered with snow, which had ! . .".ii .u.4 ?( .u- j.... i Deen failing wri an liu- iuic |>cii i ui me ua|, blhiig . jh rnuib commenced www balling those on the j dock. The cumi>limeut was returned in goo 1 j earnest, and in u tew momtnts hundreds were en- ( gaged in the animating sport, which continued for j about lia'.t an hour. The balls flew thicker and j faster than at Huena Vista, and reminded one of ' the storming of Chapultepec. The scene wound lip by those on board the Hermann running up a i white ting on the top ol an umbrella, although >ney did not surrender till every man in the shroudshaa 1 been shot down The whole scene was extreme- ( lv ludicrous. It will be seen by the annexed list, j that she takes out 305 passengers, among whom is ; William H Sidell, Esq ; he goes out ua Ctiiel Engineer of the Panama section, tor the location j ana survey of the proposed Chngree and Panama i jpilroad. i Cornelius Schermerhorn, Albert Powell, R.

Sailing of the Strafford?Dei-arturk of tub JS'ew Vokk Mining Company.?This noble bark, Willi htT urecious living freight, got under weigh and ftoorl out to sea at an early hour ou Sunday morning, accompanied by the steaming 3a<nson and a host of friend*, who sought this List opportunity of hiddtng farewell and (rod-?i>eed to as noble a band of adventurers as ever left their horn-s for a country "fur off arid di-tani " We were jMiticularly excited by a thorough eximiuation 'of the internal and domestic arrangements ot the ViAp. The baik, which was purchased and fitted <p by thiH company, m *. sires about 4<>> tons, having 'tween decks, the whole length u'_ which on either side is neatly arid comfortably fi ted up with double tiers of single berths, and from immediately forwaid of the inain hatch, with double betths, giving ample sleeping accommod iliouj to every individual. Abaft tlte ni.un hatch are arranged the mess tables, yielding comfort au I convenience while itoiiiinhiog the inner mm. Away aft is fitted up an admirably selected library, cornpr sing works on every euhjeut, and consisting of fully 3,000 volumes. These are the individual contributions of the members and geuerous <lon ttioiisfrotn the Bible and Tract Societies For the amusement and enliveninent of the company, a splendid piano and numerous other musical instruments hsve been presented to these tins felIowf; and, to crown all, a glee club has been formed, numbeiin* voices of no ordinary souud and sweetness. The police of the snip pirtakes of the same complete urrangexn' nt as the m etal organisation At the roll of .the drum, in the morning, every man is to titrable out: at 10 o'clock the "glim is to be Ho tceJ,'Kfc??4.ill must tumble io, except those whose s<piud haVe charge ot thv ship for the d?y. Th-se fi|uiJ- consist of ten men each, who appoint^ their own ci|e tain, and into whose hands is confided ihesu >reme government of all the alfairs of the vessel, save that which |?rtnins to her locomotion. Thisdeiailment was unhesitatingly yielded to the well Known and tried ability ot t'apl Coffin. Cod ble-s hint! The main leatures of this company, a'r the grsnd principles whteh govern them - mufti il assistance being the chief, and the cultivation of all those friendly offices one to another, which an Bii'fh tend to make lite aareeable. Connected with these f> atures, is a dei rrtiiualion to accomplish. if attmuuble by human means, the great object for which they have been so ready to saorifiee hIi the sweet endearments of families, Irien fs and firesides. Being personally aciptiinU: ( with a umber of this coniuany, arid having, with some, been long and inlimMtely a?soeiated, we do not say -two such when we give the ammrauae, that in uo ??? u E NE' MORN jther body of men who have been induced to leave 1 ill behind them, by rumors of untold wealth, can there be found more mind, more soul, more influx- ; ibihtv of purpose, more moral worth, more social j and harmonious intercourse, than among the memiters of the New York Mining Company. They go amply provided with provisions tor two years, i and a stock of miningimplements, with everything accessary to procure subsistence from earth, s*a or air. Such has be,-n the eagerness to join this company, that $500 have been repeatedly offered 1 lor a share which cost but $350. The steamer went as far as the Hook with the ship, and oa the word being given, "let go all!" cheer followed cheer, and old ocean rang again with the hearty and enthusiastic huzzasfrom one party to the other, and amid them all, not the least hearty was three times three for the New York Htrald. The "deep, deep sea" never bore on its broad bosom a more cheerful and hilarious company than that which left on Sunday, in the good bark Strafford. Every man's eye glistened with gladness as sail atter sail was loosed and sheeted num?, to watt them onward to the consummation of that enterprise in which all concerned have evinced an indomitable perseverance, and an untiring energy.

It was brought to this city by Mr. E. Whipple, one of tne leading men of the Msrtnon settlement in the neighborhood of the Great Salt Lake. The parcel we saw ; contained about one ounce. It is in a nearly pure i state, being composed of scales of about l-lbth of an inch in diameter. It was obtained from the [ valley of the Sacramento, by some Mormons, who j arrived at the settlements just before Mr. Whipple left. Mr. Whipple left the Great Salt Lake settlement on the 13th of October, and arrived at Fort Kearny, on the Missouri, in 51 days. The settlement ol Mormons with which he is connected, is located in a beautiful valley on the borders of the Great Suit Lake, in the northeastern part of Upper California. The Great Salt Lake is about 150 miles long, by 50 broad, and contains nothing hvtng. It is so suit that three barrels of water will make one of salt. The shores of the lake, in the dry season, are encrusted with salt fit tor use. It has no outlet. Nearly south of the Salt Lake is a fresh water lake, culled the Utah, which empties its waters into the lormer. In this lake fish, the mountain trout, are iouud. The river which connects the two lnkis, the Mormons call the Jordan. The valley in which they are situated slopes from the mountains to the river on Loth sides These lakes, we may state, for the information of those who have not access to late maps, are situ- . ated on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains, near the head waters of the River Platte, which runs into the Missouri, the Colorado, winch 1 empties into the Gulfot California, and the Co- 1 lumbia, which empties into the Pacific. The wa- ( ters of the Platte and the Colorado almost unite, by means of the Sweet Water River, which heads west of the Rocky Mountain chain, and runs into ' the Platte through the famous South Pass, lie- 1 tween these lakes and the California mountains, ' in which the Sacramento rises, ib a vast valley or , basin, supposed to consist principally ot sandy , plains, about 400 miles wide from east to west, i and some HOO to TOO miles long from uorth to i south. From this immense basin no egress for ; water has beeii discovered, the rivers losing themselves in the sand. The valley in which the Mormon settlements ! are, is about fifty miles long, and torty broad, and , is surrounded on three sides by high mountains, , and on ike north side by the lake, it gradually dopes from the mountains to the river Jordan, ana is formedliito stenoes, from varjousgorges in the (hounlaibP, hhmeious fresh water steams pour 1 iheir wateis into the Jordan, affording fine water I power. No timber grows in the valley, but an ibuodance is supplied by the valleys ot the streams n the mountains. Tt consists of fir, pine, hem- j ock, and sugar maple. In this delightful valley, about 1,000 miles from | Missouri on the eust, and 700 from the gold dig- t rings of the ."acramento, on the west?tne Rocky i Mountains being a barrier on one side, and the I great basin, and the Calitornian, or Sierra Nevada * range, on the other?the Mormons have at last 1 Iouud a resting place. About 7,000 persons, of all 1 ages und both sexes, are now collected in this val- ! ley. Tliey commeuced arriving in the valley in July, 1&47, aud last arason they raised a tine crop of wheat, corn, and outer productions, sutli- < cient tor their own consumption, and of those of their faith who are yearly coming in. After next harvest they will have provisions to dispose of ? They have two gust mills, and tour saw mills in opviation, and have laid out several villages, and a town on an elevated platle, which overlooks the whole valley aud lake. They are building substantial houses, and surrounding themselves with many comtorts. They expect a large emigration tnis season from their brethren in the neighborhood of Council Binds, where there are some thousands eoure gated. The road to Oregon and Califorma, by the North Fork, of the Plaite River, and the South Pass, passes some sixty miles to the north ot the settlement; a route by the way of the Salt Lake can be taken, which will not take the traveller oat of his way more than forty or fifty miles. The Mormons will be able to supply lresn mules aud oxen, and, after next harvest, provisions, to those who are emigrating to California. Mr Whipple says the road is very good, all the way fiom lnde|>endence to west of the mountains. In lfe47, about 1,000 wagons passed over it, and last year some 860. The trail is so well defined, that no danger from losing it need be feared. Mr. Whipple recommends oxen in preference to mules, and says they will make just as good time Emigrants usually make about fifteen miles a day. On some portions ot the route there ia a scarcity ot grass. For about five hundred miles, buffalo meat can be obtained in abundance. Mr. Whipple represents the valley of the Salt Lake as perfectly healthy, and the journey to that ngion us attended with no dangers, and but little fatigue. He returns again in the soring. The Mormons have established ferries over the only rivers which are not tordable on account of | high waters?the Platte and Green rivers?so that j no hindrance to emigrants, front that cause, need now be feared. No gold has yet been found in the neighborhood of the Salt Lake, or any where east of the Sierra Nevada, as far as Mr. Whipple is informed. What has reached that region, was brought there by the discharged Mormon soldiers, wno had lttnrned from the Placer to visit their families With reference to the story, that the Mormons had claimed a preemption right to the dtggiomu and were demanding a per centage on the gold found, Mr Whipple gives the following account. The firet discovery ot gold was made by Mormons, (discnHrged soldiers,)"in digging a mill race for Mr Suiter. As the discovery was on his ground, he gave them the liberty ot digging gold, on condition of pn> ing hint a certain |>er centage. This they agreed to do, but soon started off to explore lor themselves, and having found s?tne rich spots, they demanded a ier centage from new comers for digging in their ground, to winch they claimed a right ot discovery. This practice is general in the mines; and the Mormons, Mr. Whipple says, no more claim the whole of the minus than they do the whole of California. another account ptiom t1ik ooi.d reoion. Brrwkr, Feb. 1, ISO). Editor of the Bangor Wiuo:? The interest felt in anything pertaining to the gold region, induces me to place at your disposal the following extract of i letter received tnis morning, Irom my brother st the Sandwich Islands. Trie extract is composed chiefly ot an extract ot a letter from a gen tie ma a who had been on lite ground two mouths. Yours truly. Nathan Doi.r. Pcnaiion, Nov. 2, 1SI8. * * I r ceived a It tier last wek trout , dated Oct. 2d. He writes?aciive diggings are now going on over a tract more than 200 miles in length by 10 to 40 in width; 6,000or 0,000 are probably mining, _ and at least $2,000,000 have been dtawn from ihis hank, stace it commenced s|>ecie payment, six mouths ago. A dav's work ranges trom nothing upto a thousand dollars?but <>t those who labor steadily, the average daily income is probably not far trom an ounce. The gold is found in the stratum called by gealogistadtluviumordrilt. conri|0*ed of loose tiebhles, sand, aud gravel, and occurs most abundantly in the bottom ot dry ravines. where it lies liom a few inches to three or four feet below the surface. When a new ravine is discovered in what are called the "dry diggings," there is an immediate rush for it, and it becomes tilled with active diggers, each claiming a portion, Irom a few teet to a few yards in length; snd a ditch is soon dug two ot three feet or moie in width, and down to the rock on which the stratum of drift rests. This ditch is excavated in a tew days, and it the ravine is of ordinary richness, will yield from |t,>00, fl.000, or fO.OOO, for every rod in length?much of it in lumps large enough to be picked out without wanning?soir.e 01 me id oi me size 01 pullet's egga, or larger. My biother adds?One might *u,<pose,from readmit the above, unit digging gold is very profitable buninrsa, but there are other things to be aonatderrd. At Han Francisco board and lodging, three to ? bed, or ou the floor, is trom $20 to $30 a week. | RK E )AY, FEBRUARY 6, 1 Pork u $60 a barrel, and butter $1 a pound, at wholesale. At the mines pork is $200 a barrel.? And then the sickness. Nine-tenths of all who have gone to the mines have been taken sick. Hundreds were Ivina eiek at Sutter's Fort, unable 1 to procure a pxeeage to San Francisco, and suffering from want of attendance and of the necessaries I of life. Bilious and intermittent fevers prevail to an alarming extent. Take all things into account, ; and I think those that stay at home the best off. 1 My coirespondent says that "there is vastly less , quarrelling than he nad anticipated, but there is drinking and gambling, and all are on a level at the m nes." Mr. H. has gone to San Francisco, to see what he can do to persuade the people to lay up a t easure in heaven. He will doubtless find lull employment among the sick and dying. Two individuals who went from Honolulu have been murdered?one of them leaving a wile, a very excellent woman, and four or five children. He had been addicted to drinking and gambling. STJ1X FURTHER DISCOVERIES. Information has reached this city of a new discovery of gold regions in the vicinity ot the Rocky Mountains, little more than half way between here and Mutter's, which surpasses in richness the mines nt California as much hh those of California surpass tbemintsofNew Mexico. The gold istound not only in the saudBol the streams flowing from the i mountains, but upon the mountains, mixed with quartz, and in the rocky stiata. Instead of washing the sands, to separate the small particles of gold intermingled with them, as in California, all that is necessary in this new El Dorado is to find ere- | vices in the rocks, pry or blast them ajart, and : clutch the precious metal in pure and Kolid musses, j We understand a secret expedition is already on i foot to visit this region, but as it is in the heart j cf a warlike Indian country, consid ruble force j will be necessary lor the enterprise.?

Mysterious Circumstances. - At an early hour on Monday morning a Mrs. Mooney. residing at No. 22 Mulberry street, went to the front door of her reslicnoe, for some?purpose, when she discovered, lying upon the sidewalk, a man's ooat; ou retraoing her steps, she found a pair ef pantaloons lying upon the steps, a vest in the ball, and aa?r by a pair of drawers, a shirt considerably torn a scarf, a pair ot white cotton gloTer. and a pocket book with no money in it. One co?hrt cf tb? p-mtaloons contained $21 la good bank lulls, a sovereign, and worthless bills representing $50. No person in the house could give the least aooount of the ownership of the clothes. Mr. Moonsy, the husband of the weman who found them, went to the Ch<ef of Tolice and stated the olroumstanoes to him. An j officer was sent to the house for the clothing, whloh is ' now at tbe Chb t 's office, awaiting the result of an in- i restigation, wbiob will be made by the polioe.

The seats for spectators are separated by Iron railings from the part of the room appropriated to the use of the members of the par and jurors. This is a good arrangement; and mother, etlil better.

The first movement towards rational liberty, in F.arope, commenced as it was by the Pope, sould not but te rrgarded with the warmest sympathy by every American citizen; and the expression of thit sympathy by the inhabitants of this great oommeroial emporium, was due alike to his exalted character and the cause in which he was engaged.

Funeral of the Late Alexander Ming, Bent* at tlie Cemetery of tire Cypress Mills, The remains of this veteran printer were, on > nndey afternoon, eondneted to their final rest t the Cypress Hills, by a numerous procession f our oltlsens, in a special railroad train, from Brooklyn. A large number of pereone went out frem Brooklyn, In Hardy'e new omnlbusaes. Carrlegee arrived faet, and a considerable number of persona were waiting In elustere, on the hills of tha Cemetery, for the arrival of the oare. It gave us time to survey a portion of the grounds of this new home for the dead. They are situated on the Jamaloa and Brooklyn turnpike about two miles east of the limits of the Corporation of Brooklyn, in one of the most picturesque parts of the Island; the railway passes within about sixty or seventy rods of the front en trance. This oemetery Is, we believe, the largest in the world A fine entrance, in the Greek style, with sn areh supported by lodges, opens to one of the main avenues, appropriately oalled na Dolorosa; sine# trough this great gat,way all processions pass, it la, iteretore the Mourner', Way At the head of this avenofr is the great rrceiviag vault, whion seems to be nearly done To give an <dea ef toe surface or appearanew of this cemetery In theee few paragraphs, is difficult, 'lberu is sn hundred acres of heavy forest, an hundred of lawn and opsn field, and about the lanre of young shrubbery and undergrowth On the front lewn. and aerose the first range of hiile many thousand of flue forest and ornamental trees have been planted in the most picturesque meaner. About ten rmlee of roads and avenues have already been laid ut, and worked and lined with trees and shrubs. There ate many beauttul sheets of water among these bills, lyiog like mirrors in the mid<t of fancy gardens. One or two Ideas conn,eted with this new oemetery sttuvk us as most decided improvements on anything we have yet bad la this oounty. let. The entire burial ground is to be a landsoape garden, laid out with taste, aud embellished in (he ni<t exquisite manner. Thus the unpleasant associations of the grave-yard ar? dote away with and we Christians are getting civilised enough to ge back to the purity, and simplicity, and taste of the eiassio nation* of antiquity; tor they teem to have had none of those ditguetiiig ideas of the grave with nhioh modern sects have ciotbvd it. 2.

We believe, too, that Hun. John A. King and other I.eng Island proprietors are mov ng in the enterprise of building a plank road from Brooklyn to Jamaica This will render trie Cypres* Hll* the most accessible as well as beautiful fashionable drive in our vicinity. 3. There is nothing narrow, sectarian, Illiberal. or exolu-lte In this oeiuetery. We don't much like this spirit in ids, and in death it becomes despicable.
