California.—A person who just went there wrote that it was a 14 day trip from Honolulu to California. Gold digging is not going well now. Many people come to dig and quickly go back; it is stormy; there is a lot of water that comes down from the mountains and the land gets flooded. There are 75 or more ships anchored in San Francisco Bay. There are many people from foreign lands coming to California; 30,000 people coming. It is said that the Indians are at war with the gold diggers, and many people have been killed. 40 people have been hung. It is not very clear; maybe when more is heard.
