Free as this country is, it is not completely emancipated from the thraldiiit >! priestcraft; and were it not for the liberty and independence of the press, we are satisfied th.'.r our people would be as much the slaves of then prints as are those ot any other country. Priestcraft, or tyranny of any kind, however, cannot gain such an ascendancy over men's minds as it would desire, as long as freedom of the press exit is. That mighty power grapples with it, wherever it exhibits its cloven loot. It treats it as it would error in any other lorm, and always triumphs in the contest. We do not wish the public to suppose that we are hostile to the priesthood, as a class, or that we would, in the slightest degree, detract trom the holiness ol iheir calling. On the contrary, we would have them believe that we honor and respect the priestt r od of all denominations, and would like to see them respected by every man. While we would do this, however, we would confine them within their own peculiar sphere. We would not have iht m descend from the altar, cross in hand, and e< ter the arena of politics, for the purpose of excitu.g the passions of one portion of the people against another; we would not have them, as they art- in Mexico, a controlling element in the government ; we would not have them, as they have recently done in Ireland, ascend the pulpit and use the sanctity of their calling to stop the progress of one ot the holiest efforts ever made by an oppressed and downtrodden people, to oveiturn a corrupt, dee; otic, and bloody government. In a word, ihf* l? rt? vmrxr urall IB tkwiw ! j ?vt/ ttvm mi uivu uj/ci juauc, auu ire *< uld keep them in their proper place. If, from ary excuse, they left their appropriate sphere, we w ould denounce them. We would nip in the bud any attempts they might make to attain an undue influence over the |>eople, or engage in matters which concern them not. Of this character is an extraordinary ease of priestly interference, which lock place at Rochester, in this State, a few days since. We will briefly explain the circumstances. A member of the Order of Odd Fellows, living in Buffalo, died there, and his body was taken to Koahester for interment. As a mark of respect to the deceased, the brethren of the order in the latter city received the body at the cars, and formed an escort to the Catholic church in which the funeral services were to be performed. The Odd Fellows entered the church, as a matter of course; but before the services were commenced, the officiating pri'St requested every member of a sscret society to leave the church. Thinking rightly that the occasion was too solemn to permit them to rebuke the priest for hia insolence, the Odd Fellows withdrew from the church. Now, we will put it to our readers whether thejr ver heard of a more insolent or impudent piece of interference than this. In the presence of ths deceased, and his friends and relatives, this priest took occasion to go out ot his way to insult a benevoleni association, which is based on friendship, love, and truth, to all mankind; which recognizes no distinction ot birth-place, color, race, wealth, religion, or politics, in its members; which sums to join the whole human rac, in every part ot the world, in the bonds of brotherhood; whioh dees more good, and relieves more distress, than all the churches combined. What could be his motive 1 Ths good accomplished by the order of Odd Fellows is acknowledged by all; and why should it be thus openly and publicly assailed, and its members insulted, and that too by a priest 1 The reason is plain. The Church is all ? preachee, prrachee, preaches," without practice, and this benevolent society is all practice and n? " preachee." The Church preaches friendship, leve, and truth, and the Odd Fellows practice them. The consequence is that modern priestcraft tcela its influence and fears annihilation, ior the order of Odd Fellows and other benevolent institutions are making rapid strides, and inoreasiag at a rate quite alarming to the priests ot all denominations. Bishop Hughes, some time since, denounced that order fiom his altar and newspaper organs, and other sects are engaged in preventing its extension, to the utmost of their ability. It the priests were sincere in their professions, and desired to practice what (hey preach, instead of throwing obstacles in the way of the order, they would join it heart and hand, and bid it God-speed in its good work, as some ot the best of their cloth have done and arc now doing; for there ia hardly a lodge that does not number among its members, a clergyman of some religious sect. As long as we are at the head ot an independent press, w?t will rebuke and denounce all such acts as we ha?e mentioned. We will never consent that prieata or parsons shall tneddls with what doss not concern them?we wi'l denouncs fanaticism ot every kind, religious, or political. Latw from Havana.?By the arrival of the bark Rapid, Capt. Ward, fron Havana, we are in receipt of papers to the 27th, and accounts to the jomin uii. uur niws cununit 01 mr faro fniuttaial and the Diario d* la Marina We are sorry to eee that one of the little Viennoiae Children, Maria Stanton, aged only 8 years, died at Havana on the 2Jd ult., after a short illneas f only two daya. Her funeral was attended by all her former companions, Madame Weiss, Seaora Tndeaoo, Signor Marti, and a great crowd ot respectable citizens. The Havana papers are uaoonunoaly barn ef MWS American Ifmptlhlnn la Ireland. That every pulse of Ireland la filled with the most pure love and high enthusiasm for America, is < proved by the confidence the Irish people feel in j tvery one known lo be purely American. When ) Mr. James Bergen, ot New York, was in Ireland, | and Ireland was in commotion, the simple faot ; that he was a native ol the United States ceutred ni.<>n him the strongest and most lively feeling? CO that, during his long imprisonment in Newgate, Dublin, as a suspected American sympathiser, he had friends innumerable, who daily, and with heartfelt interest, watched his course and conductOn his retrace irom an incarceration ot one hundred and fourteen days, he would have been feasted beyond the endurance ot any ordinary individual, but ke declined all public demonstrations; and avoiding dinners from associations, clubs and parties, chose only the hospitality of some of the gentlemen who had previously been his fellow-prisoners. At some of these private dinners he met some of the leading men of Ireland. Our space will afford us only room to describe a lew incidents. Just after the suspected attempt at an escape, under the bad auspices of that ungrateful scoundrel, Hutchinson, the polioeman, whom Mr. Duffy had lifted from abject misery and insignificance, Charles Gavan Duffy, Richard D'Alton Williams, Kevin, and Izod O'Dogherty, were removed to the part of Newgale where Mr. Bergen, Mr. Ryan, and aome forty others, were confined. Im. mediately on their reception, it was proposed to give those distinguished gentlemen a dinner, and, although neither the Astor House nor Gresham's Hotel were in requisition, and it was contra bontt morti in Newgaro to eat, even decently, it was so contrived, in defiance of all law and rule, that Newgate should, for the first time in fifty years, witness one meal of victuals. The Jietta was not, perhaps, as rtckerchi as if Messrs, Coleman and Stetson, or John Florence, had had supreme command ; but, even under Yankee auspices, there was a sort of read mili* faltha about it which made every one remember thuthe was at home, and, therefore, bound to love loyalty, in a way which may, hereafter, improve the British rule in old Ireland. At the same time that the dinner to Mr. Duffy, etc., was progressing, the poor, but stalworth and honest, sufferers tor Ballin/.arry were being fed with the first msat dinner which some of them had tasted for years; and, by the way, it is worth while to Btate tnat, although nioct of these men, like their compeers,labor hard in the coal mines, from day to day, they scarcely know the taste of animal food; and yet, in a stats of positive misery, they were ready to strive for Ireland's independence. Where were the well fed and purse proud then 1 At this dinner, Mr. Bergen presided as chairman, assisted by Cornelius K. Mahoney; and if Lord John Russell could have been of the party, it would hare improved his knowledge of Irish affairs, and might, perhaps, have made a decent man of him. This dinner took place on the 22d of October, 1848; and its anniversary is to be celebrated for ever, by the participants and their descendants, wherever they may be, as a day especially devoted to Ireland. On thp 25th day of November?the anniversary of the evacuation of New York by the British troops?Mr. Bergen received no'ice that Mr. Ryan and himself were to be liberated. He caused the disgrace of the British to be properly celebrated in all his despatches to government (published), and by his Irish fellow prisoners, who will probably remember evacuation day quite as well as it should always be remembered in New York. On the 26th, as Mr. B. had to await the signing of his release, his fellow prisoners determined to give Mr. Ryan and himself a " finishing" banquet. By management, the splendor of this entertainment surpassed all hotel pretensions. Newgate belonged to the prisoners, for the time, and it echoed to the loud song of the " Star Spangled Banner," as sung by Mr. Bergen, chorused by his fellow prisoners, and applauded by the listening and admiring hundreds of " out side citizens," to the great dread of the Dublin police. At this, the last of the " Newgate outbursts," the following address, written by Charles Gavan Duffy, was presented by a committee eonsisting of the following gentlemen, viz.:?Charles Gavaa Duffy, chairman; Edward Troaton, vice chairman ; John Lawless, James Doyle, James Francis Lalor, John Martin Burke, Eugene Martin, Jonn Evans, Francis Harvey, Charles Henry West, M. D., Cornelius It. Mahoney, secretary; via.:? Newuats, Dublik, Nov. 26. 1848. To Jambs Bbboer, of Nssr York, and Richard F. Ryak. Keqs ?Gentlemen We oRBoot permit you to quit this prison, where. through long and most eventful period, you have shared our oaptivity, without offering you some distinct eipreeslon of tbe respect and regard with which yeur oonduot and bearing have impressed u*. You have borne the many privations and the not anfrequent Insolence of authority, whleh make imprisonment heavy, with manly oeurage and forbearance; and your associates bear willing testimony to the cordial and nnfalling kindness with whioh you heve endeavored to share and lighten the same burden on others. Accept onr personal gratitude, and at the same time bear back with yon the expressions of our profound gratltuds and rsspset to the free nation of whioh you have the happiness to be citisena, for their services to our oountry In all her necessities, aod their frank and I generous reception of our exiles. We trust, hereafter, to be able to thank Amerloa as she ought to be thanked; but, meantime, you will be our witnesses that we are not unmindful or lngrate. Mr. Bergen also received innumerable testimonials from the friends of the United States. Among them we select the inscriptious on tho likenesses oi Terrene** Bellew McManus and Thomas Francis Meagher, which he brings to this country. Under the likeness of McManus is inscribed in his own chirot, the following words:?

After visiting the American Minister, at London, Mr. Bergen returned, via Liverpool, in the ship Princeton, Captain Russell, with Mr. Ryan, Kugene Martin and James Francis Lalor, who had been his lellow prisoners in Newgate. Some ot his American friends propose to compliment him by a public dinner at the Coliseum, on Tuesday next. As he will meet there some of the lead* ing exiles, it will, without doubt, prove tn be a highly intellectual entertainment.

The result of the relent prize fight between Sullivan and Hyer, n Maryland, promises to lay the foundation of a errinle feud between their several adherents in his city, that may break out, one of these days> into some fatal riot or row. It seems that Sullivan and his friends deny the Accuracy ol the statement that Hyer won the light according to the approved rules of the ring ' Yesterday, Sullivan published, in conformity with this idea, the following card :? SULLITAN'l Nonca TO THK PuSLIO.?I faorobj Otdtlon my friends throughout tha country, who have had mooay staked on my fight with Hyrr, not to give up a oent, a* I won the fight aooording to the rules of the *1 ting, three times?and never lost It oaee. JAVtKs SULLIVAN. Such an announcement, under the name of Sullivan himself, will have the effect of preventing either the stakes being delivered up, or the payment of the beta that are pending between the several adherents of the prize fighters. It will be recollected that the stakes tor the fight amounted to ten thousand dollars?five thousand aside; and it is calculated that the beta may exceed one hundred thousand dollars, more or leas. We do not apprehend, however, that the payment of the stakes can be prevented by the mere announcement made in the card. The stakes are held by parties whs, according to all accounts, consider that Hyer gained the victory; and, of course, if their convictions run in that direction, nothing can prevent the stakeholders from paying over the funds to Hyer. But a diflerent result may take place with regard to the payment of the bets. The friends of Sulli van, long before the fight came off, were ho confide nt of the the victory oi their man over Ilyer, that they bet moat extravagantly, and in every quaiter? many of them to the whole extent ( their meanB. The decibion against them would, of course, if acquiesced in, reduce many of them to pennileBi pockets. From this circumstance, as well as from the ambiguity of the rules of the ring, and the conflicting recollections of the spectators, they may be able to get up a plausible case, to the effect that there lias been foul play in the fight; that some of the rounds were not fought according to the strict rules of the ring; and, therefore, that the decision of the referees in favor of Hyer, is invalid and contrary to the established code of pugilism. Such is the position of matters at this moment; and this position tends to exasperate the adherents of each, and to render their feelings extremely bitter towards each other. Mr. Hyer's party is principally made up of a class of society who will not very readily submit to the terms, or the consequences, indicated in Sullivan's card. Neither is it probable that the adherents of Sullivan, who are equally determined and powerful in numbers, as well as strength, will give up in their turn. We are prepared, therefore, unless the authorities of N?w York are very watchful, to see terrible riots breaking out between these two adverse factions during the next four weeks, in consequence of this position of matters. The aggregate of the bets pending amounts to one hundred thousand dollars. This circumstance gives an additional feelinn of ferocitv to the adherents ot the two far. tions. But this is not all. Tom Hyer is considered " a Bowery boy," is a native of New York, and is backed by what is called "the native party" and native interest. On the contrary, " Yankee " Sullivan is said to be an Irishman, and is supported in his viewB by the Irish party, through all its curious and interesting ramifications ia the diflerent wards of this city. Again, Tom Hyer has been always attached to ths whig party ; has been hitherto one of its principal leaders in times of difficulty and disorder, when elections were pendingOn the other hand, "Yankee" Sullivan is the champion of democracy at Tammany Hall, and, on many occasions, has led their processions, arranged their public meetings, and supported their pretensions in the conflicts which have generally taken place at contested elections. These circumstances have given additional edge and accumulated vindictivenesB to the feud; while at tne same time they have engendered a more extensive sympathy with the combatants and their respective adhorents. A new election is just approaching. tor the municipal government of this city. An attempt has been made to organise an independent party for this movement; but their eflorts have been imbecile and ineflective. The two great parties o! the country are now beginning ( come into the field, and will, no doubt, take sides with the two factions, and thus superadd the acrimony of political feeling to all the other motives and stimulants which have worked up the two factions to their present intense animosity. Jt will be seen from this view of the controversy ?from this mixture of personalities and politics, ! and from the high and more comprehensive ' sympathy wmcii tias been excited?that much danger la to be apprehended of a violent outbreak i taking place between tne adherents of tne two j pugilists before many weeks. The scenes which have already occurred at the head quarters of ( each party, give an inkling of what may be ex- 1 pected. The refusal of Sullivan's party to pay their 1 bets, under the sanction of his card, may bring en the crisis between the tactions; and we shortly expect *.o hear of some dreadful collision and riot, if the magistrates and police authorities of New York do not make preparations to put such scenes down at a moment's notice. ( P.S.?Since the above was written, Sullivan has ( issued another pronunciamtnto to his friends. It ] is published as an advertisement in this day's , paper- 1 Police Intelligence. 1 CAargt tf Stealing SAtep.?A maa by the name of < Alexander Benryman, wai arrested yesterday, on a i warrant issued by Jnstlee Lotbrop, wherein he stands eharged with obtaining twenty lire sheep In a felonious way from the possession of David K. Tripp In tbe following manner ?It appears that Mr. Tripp sold the twenty sheep to Berryman for $80, and reoetved $6 on aeeount, bnt that the sheep were not to be delivered until the balanee, $28 was paid. However, in tbe abseaoe of Mr. Tripp, Berryman drove the sheep from ? the c ustody of Tripp, had them slaughtered, and then a kept out or the way. Tripp finding that he had been defrauded out of hie propsrty, made tbe eompleint at the poliee offloe, and a warrant was issned for tbe arrest of Berrsman. Berryman on finding out that k t! warrant had been issued for him on the charge, went a to the complainant and paid up tbe balanoe $26, but this payment did not settle tbe case, as tbe magistrate held the accused to ball to answer the charge at oourt for trial. t Brfort Justice I.tthmp?Yesterday morning, the police court presented rather a dark appearanoe, from the fact of tbe major part of the prisoners brougnt be- * fore the magistrate, by the policemen from the prevlons * night's arrests, were blacks of a very dark complexion.

Mr. HiLLiABD.of Alabama, being entitled to the floor, rose and addressed the committee la an able and very eloquent manner dwelling especially upon the territorial question. He gave a history or the aotlon of Congress upon the subjeot, beginning with Mr Clayton's compromise bill?which bill he approved of, but whloh tbe House had put aside. He advocated, In energetio terms, his own bill for the establishment of a government in California, and appealed to the North to support It, en the ground that it did net establish slavery in that territory. He eulogised the great qualities of New Kngland, and claimed the honor ef a participation in them, as a citlsen and lover of the whole Union. Though he ardently loved the South, he loved the Union more and was determined to stand by the Union. His peroration was peculiarly beautiful, holding the undivided attention of all the members. Mr Buown, of Mississippi, followed, and spoke for some minutes upon tbe territorial question, differing with the views hitherto expressed by Mr. Preston, respecting territorial ri?hta, and then branched off into a defence of the administration and its measures generally In tbe course ?of his remarks, he was several times Interrupted by Mr. Boyden, of North Carolina, to wt oee queries he gave satisfactory replies.

Mr. Hunt pronounced the present administration a partisan one in everything, from beginning to end, and predicted that thelnoomlag administration would be national and jnst in all respeots. Mr Houstok, of Alabama, asked the gentleman's permission to make an explanation, and said that he ubu iifvo minrrprfRoii(iea. nil rsmarK, to wd10q IIIU ion had been mad*, waj, that Mr Polk wai the Preiident of the democratlo party, upon the partloalar j nentlon of the war and not that he was the Preside a* of the Democratlo party, simply.

Theatrical and Musical. Bowxar TH?aT?x.?The past week ha* aot bees a very favorable on* for tbeatrioal*. The oold bluaterlng weather, and varlon* out of doer exeltement*, have tended maoh to keep the theatre goer* from their nsaal vlalt*. At the Bowery the greateat bit of the week baa been the drama of the " Sergeant'* wife," whisk baa been played with the moat remarkable *aooe*a, and ha* received more appianae than we reooileot to have heard given to one pieoe thin winter. The Bedouin Arabi played a few nlghta; their feata, though wonderful enough in tbeir way, aod requiring vait *trength and great eklll, were not ao briliiant and impoaing aa many whioh are not ao difficult if performance. They are, however, a fine, aottve aet of aorebat*, and oreated quite a (eneatlon. Baring the ooming weak aeveral novelties will be produced, and we expeot to see the Bowery well orowded every evening. Bboadwat Thbatbc.?There was another large attendance last evening at thia popular theatre, to witness the performanoe of " Monte Cristo." The suoosseful run wbioh it has already enjoyed, ha* oallad forth many oritlolsms, whioh were deservedly due, in relation to the admirable manner in whioh thia splendid produotion has b*en put upon the stage. Mr. Lester, a* usual, last evening, was excellent in the part of Dante*; and the desire to see it, even still oontinues unabated. Upon no former oooaaion on our publio stage, has a similar produotion been reoelved with so muoh of popular favor; and it still promises to draw good house*. Its great popularity has secured to the theatre, so far, a consecutive representation of forty-two nights; and it promise* to draw, by its unprecedented interest and splendor, the most fashionable and delighted audlenoe*. The grand feature of attraction in the pleoe is tie Io?ad of Monte Cristo, so beautifully represented The arrival of the smuggler*, and the various lnoidents oonneoted with this splendid aot, are much admired. The pieoe will be continued during the ooming week, after wbioh it will be withdrawn. National Theateu ?" Rosina Meadow* " has been the feature of the week at thle houie. I tie au intereating play, though the etery la rather too full of unmitigated raaoality; etill we do not know but what it ahowa up, in their true oolore, the oouraes pursued by certain claaaes of young scampa about the eity. There ought te hare been aome oomlo underplot more than there ia, by way of a relief to the broadoast wickedness of the principal obaraotera. J.R Soott has been aottngseve ral of his favorite parts during the week, such as " Wallace," William la '-Black Eyed Susan," ho ; and, supported by the excellent oompany, general satisfaction was given to the audiences. A new looal piece, called "California Ho!" ia to be produced tomorrow evening ; It will be played with very novel effects. The very identical ship in whioh Mose embark* will be exhibited on the stage, and all the troubles of raising the wind, getting outfit he , will be graphically Mted, we presume ; it will be a racy affair, we doubt not. Buxton's Theatsk.?A very respectable audlenoe attended this very attractive plaoe of amusement last j evening, to witness three of Mr. Burton's ever attrao- ! tire pieces?"Vanity Fair," " Counterfeit Present- | meats," and "Monto Christy." These pleoes were i played with a degree of talent that only Mr. Burton can boast of; Mr. Brougham, Mr. Johnston, Mr. Re a, Mr. Raymond, Mies Chapman, Mr*. Knight, and ia feot,all the performers engaged at this theatre are good. These pieces seem to have a very long run, and well they may, as they will bear witnessing more than ones. Several new pieces, we understand, are ia prepaiatlon, and will be produced soon. Italian OrECA.?The first performance of " La Favorite ' was given on Friday evening, and the eeeond last evening, at the As tor Plaoe. It was, on both occasions, if not a failure, as near suoh a catastrophe as ever was witnessed by the dilleUnh. No proper scenery, no oorreet costume, for (ho era from whioh the plot la token; no reoltattva?auoh la tha abortion of on entertolnment offered by Mr. Fry to those who patronise hia plooe. Many present hod oft and again seen In Paris the great work of Donisetl, and knew its mosio as well as the ABC, and they oononr In deelaring that they soaroely reoognised " La Favorita," aa sang by Dnpres, Barhoillet, Mae. Stols and Levaaseur, In the Italian translation, as performed at the Aitor Plaoe Opera. There was but one opinion on this matter In the lobbies, and many apeotators left i the theatre In disgust. If any body had read the bills ' he would hare seen, two weeks in adranee, that ' La Farorlta," waa to bo performed with new scenery, new ooatumes, eto. There were neither tbe first nor I the last, but the anoient stock of sceneries?a cemetery I Instead of a ololster; a Roman palaet, instead of a Moorish hall; a public square, instead of a convent, j eto. eto.

According to this, the latest date from San Francisco is the 6th of November. Our last letter from Monterey was ot the 16th ot that month. The Lexington will bring $200,000 or $300,009, and perhaps more, of the gold dust. She has now been over three months at sea. It will be seen that these accounts confirm those published exclusively in the Herald of the 29th ult. The New Orleans papers of the 1st mat. give the following additional intelligence:? The only paragraph bearing upon our possessions on the West CoaBt oi America, relates to the arrival of the United States ship <>t the hue Ohio, Commodoie Jones, at Monterey, having on b ant 350 Mexican emigrants. Several launches had arrived at San Francisco from Moaterey, filled with emigrants, all bound to the gold mines. The weather has been very cold in California, ice having formed of the thickness of a quarter of an inch. Large quantities ot gold had been discovered in the neignoorhood of the Nortn Fork, on* man having gathered $12,000 worth in six days, and three others have obtained, in a single day, thirty-a x pounds ot pure metal. The New Orleans Picayune, of the 1st instant, gives the following intelligence:? We have by way of Mexico a copy of the Oalifarnian, of October 21st?later than any paper from San Francisco we have seen, but containing little news. We clip a lew item', as follows: " Improvements, in the shape ot building, are rapidly going on in our city. Among the rest, Messrs. De Witt k Harrison's new building, which was framed in the States, is going up oa Samson street, ouposite the Government Reserve. "The U. S. ship ot the line, Ohio, Com. T. ap I IT a ... J I wu?vci>; uvuco, auu \j . kj. cui|'?> ovum auipiuil OaQ Lexington, arrived at Monterey, on the 12th met., bringing 350 Mexican refugees. We understand these vessels may be all expected here in the course of the coming week. Their presence will enliven our community to no inconsiderable extent. Lieut. Col. Burton has arrived at Monterey in the Ohio." Our Monterey correspondent informs us that the U. S. storeship Lexington will leave this port tor New York between the 1st and 10th of November. She will touch at Valparaiso and Rio de J metro, -< and, should the interests of commerce require i', at the Sandwich Islands. The Lexington will take gold and silver bullion (placer) to either oi the above mentioned ports, and deliver it to the agent or consignee at the following rates of freight:?Te Honolulu and Valparaiso, on gold and silver, one per centum; to Rio and New York, on gold, one ano a bait per centum?or silver, two and a half per centum. The insurance on gold and silver, en board a man of war. is usually below one per cent. The Lexington is a fast sailer, aid will undoubtedly make a short passage. A rumor is extant here, that a merchant bark, bound from Valparaiso to this port, has been seized by the crew, and the captain and officer* put to death. Also, that an armed vessel has been despatched from Caliao in her pursuit. We cannot vouch for the truth of this story, though it comes to us in a very plausible shape. From a long article upon the civil organization of the territory of California we extract the following:? That we are without any established form of civil government is readily admitted; but that "the Colonel of the 1st Dragoons," as commanding officer of the U. S. forces in this tevitory, has the ivv^auiioii auu vvuilllUC a VCIlI^UTUTJT CIVIL government here, by the appointment of a governor and council, in whom shall reside the power of framing such laws and adopting such measures sb the present state ol the territory imperatively demands. Now that Com. Jones has arrived upon our coast, Col. Mason is ot course second is authority; and with the commodore, as commander ol the Pacific squadron, lies the nower of immediately establishing a government here. Should neither of these officers, however, feel inclined to assume the responsibility requied, we believe It will be not only proper buthighlv necessary that the people of this territory should, as a measure ot sell defence, immediately take the necessary steps in the matter, after the example of our sister at the North, and establish?not a young republic, but?a < moderate system of a free government, which shall ultimately and almost insensibly* become a portion of that which Congress shall vouchsafe to give us, whenever the opposing parties have worried each other down to a compromise. A rumor has reached us that Commodore Jones and Colonel Mason have had a conversation upon this all-important subject, from which we are eager to announce that sa'uiary measures will immediately be entered into, which will ensure the safety of life and property, in accordance with the lawa ot the United States. Then shall California, with her great resources, her fertility ol soil; ths salubrity of her climate, and, above all, herex'raordinary mineral resources, becom- the garden spot of the world?the place above all othtra msat to be desired as a residence, where peace and prosperity shall spread their fostering influences The following is a letter, from Purser Buchanan, of the navy, dated on hsatd the U S shin Lf.tla, Nov. 22,1848, from which we make the following extracts:? We will sail tomorrow for San Bias to receive ? 100,000 for the army, and then will sail far ths Sandwich Islands. We remain at Hilo and Honolulu a short time, and return to San Francisco and Upper California early in February. Wa leave about the 20th of February tor Valparaiso and Rio, and hope to reach the United States on Dr before Aug. 15 When we sailed from Monterey, on the Sd of November, it was said there were about tour thousand persons washing, digging, and collecting gold lust. At the mines, labor is from ten to fifteen lobars per dav; board ten dollars per day, with he privilege of sleeping under a tree. A pair of baskets is worth $80; a pea jacket $150 Tea a worth $5 per pound, and everything in like pro- | >ortion. Captain Hallrck, of the engineer corps, who has >een there, aays triers is no tale in the Arabian Mights half so romantic and golden aa these mines, >r placers, as they are called. Ao extent of over hres hundred miles, by thirty to fifty broad, has >een exploied, and due west from Monterey, as ar south as the City of Angels, an extent of two nindred miles, yet unexplored, contains gold. * Mumerous vessels from hers h>?? nnn? ?n nth goods, money, and passengers, and people I rotn all paits of the tvorld are flocking there in ;reat numbers.

H The storeshis Lexington will sail for the United H Kates about the first of December, with about H 1100,000 in gold. She received at Monterey $50,OOg n gold. We expect to receive a large freight.
