They Hod just got Clear of the land and fairly into the Potomac alien they were Dis. Covered by some of Tye British Fleet which was then blockading the River and Chase was immediately the Barge. The Little Hooker was quickly put about and endeavoured to regain her Harbor but she stuck fast Between the Island and the main land. The men on Board owned the vessel and were both captains their names Matthew Guy and Woodward. Guy was a Little Bullet headed fellow As Brave As old Zack and could shool As Well As another celebrated personage of the name who a still living. As soon As the Schooner grounded lie began to prepare his ducking gun to receive the Johnny bulls who were paying them so hurried a visit.

The Winter of which All the severe campaigning of our Sailor soldiers and citizen volunteers was carried excessively severe for California the weather was cold accompanied by heavy Rains and Strong winds from the southward and eastward the rain averaging five Days out of.

I will give As you have requested the readers of the Home journal a sketch of capt. Sutler pronounced of himself his Means Hie fort bearing his name and a few facts in rela Tion to the Gold Region.

The astonish for shooting ducks which was close by and As j sure evidence of gentle blood. In matters and soon is the Barge pulled in As soon As her keel i conversation. Captain Sutler is a perfect Chesterfield he is Ivell educated and Speaks several different languages fluently he is a native of Switzerland and was one of Ttye officers of the Swiss guard in the revolution of july during the reign of Charles x.

As far Ai the real interests of California Are concerned i would set Down Captain Sutler As one of the Best men in the country he a enterprising and with a Little More determination of character would soon be a millionaire As it in irom his proximity to the Gold Region he is fan coining Money. The Gold Region proper extends Over a tract of country some two Hundred Miles in length although Gold has been found from the extreme Northern Point of California Range six Hundred Miles South to the City of the Angels. The fear of being accused of what sailors Call warning forbids my stating All i know concerning these but the facts Are so Plain to the evidence of our senses and so Well authenticated by the highest in rank and most impartial in judgment in the govern ment employment Here that they must be believed by Ibe most sceptical.

The Western girls however Are so fond of kissing that when saluted on one Cheek they instantly present the other.

The crop of wheat raised by Captain Sutler for the year 1848, was upwards of thirty thou Sand bushels which is valued at the round sum of eighty thousand Dollar. is the proceeds from the labor of one Hundred and Wenly five rude indians. He Hai also erected Mills for grinding wheat and sawing Timber and it was in the construction of a dam and race for a saw Mill that one of the persons in his employ discovered the Gold. In letting on the water the Tail race As it is called was found to be too narrow and the water was let in to Wash it wider. It was on looking at the effects of this summary proceeding thai a or.

But there was Little Lime for refection he therefore shaped his course Lor Cape Ann and after six hours hard he reached Rock port. Occasionally the sea would break Over him and he would be forced to leave hid oar to bail out his frail Craft. From Roc part he went to Gloucester when lie look the can for this City. As May be supposed Captain Mcfadden was in no very cheerful mood. He was deeply affected by the death of Winslow he concluded of course that his vessel in which he had invested All his properly was wrecked i on some of the neighbouring beaches and he Jared for the Fate of on Board the j cars he detailed his troubles very feelingly and i exhibited his hands blistered As they were by i six hours sculling. On crossing the Harbor in the ferry boat he perceived a familiar Eail driving up the Harbor. Could it be the wave the Peak was lowered just a he left it. He looked again. It was the wave. As soon As he reached the wharf he jumped into the boat and proceeded to meet Hia Craft. Fortunately for his vessel he for in five minutes More she would Hare been slap into some of the wharves.
