Emigration to California, 1848.

Emigration.—Since the gold discoveries in California, 69 passports have been granted. Nearly as many more have gone from this port in capacities not requiring passports. Probably not less than 125 have left the islands up to this date, and a large number more will go soon.

(Polynesian, 8/5/1848, p. 3)
