The Splendid New Steamship
This new and magnificent ship was built expressly for this coast. She has all the late improvements of Ice Houses and Bath Rooms, is thoroughly and completely ventilated with large square ports, etc., etc., and is in every respect unsurpassable. Her Proprietors and Agents will spare no exertion to make the INDEPENDENT LINE superior to all others for comfort, safety, speed, and fair rates.
She will connect on the Atlantic with Vanderbilt's celebrated Steam Yacht
2,500 tons burthen. C. H. Minor, Esq., Commander, which is admitted to be the fastest steamer out of the port of New York. Passngers can rest assured of reaching New York ahead of all other lines.
ONLY EIGHTEEN MILES MULE TRAVEL -- GOOD ROAD
The Yankee Blade sailed from San Francisco June 1st at 6 o'clock P.M. and passed the Sierra Nevada bound for San Juan, the same night at 11 o'clock. The John L. Stephens, starting about 80 minutes after us, kept in company nearly 70 hours, when we lost sight of her on the starboard beam.
On the 4th, owing to a derangement of the force pump, we ran 14 hours with only one boiler. On the 10th, made the J. L. Stephens off the larboard bow, passed and lost sight of her the same night, and arrived at Panama at 2-1/2 o'clock the morning of the 14th, enabling our passengers to reach Aspinwall the same day, being but 11 miles mule travel on the Isthmus.
Sailed from Panama on the 17th at 9-1/2 P.M., with 400 passengers, and Wells Fargo & Co.'s and Adams & Co.'s Expresses. Encountered severe head winds nearly all the way, and arrived at San Francisco July 1st, 5-1/2 P.M.

LIBERALITY. -- We learn that the agent of the Independent steamship Yankee Blade, have offered a first class free passage to the Atlantic States to the wife and children of J. H. Dunn, who was murdered some time since by Foley. They will leave in the steamer tomorrow, and with about $1800 in money, which has been generously subscribed for them here, since the sad event which robbed them of a husband and a father. These facts speak well for the liberality of the company and of our citizens.
