PassageDaily Alta California, January 7, 1853
Arrival of the California.
The P.M. steamship California, R.L. Whiting, Esq., commander, arrives yesterday mornign from Panama, which port she left on the morning of the 22d ult., having thus made the passage, including stoppages, in the short space of fifteen days. She was off the harbor on Wednesday evening, but was prevented entering by a dense fog which hung over the land during the whole of that day and night. We are indebted to Messrs. Adams & Co., Wells, Fargo & Co. and Berford & Co., for favors received by the California. The advices of the California are not later than received by the Cortes, both steamers having left on the same day. The California brings up about three hundred and fifty passengers, among whom are forty-nine females and twenty-eight children. The regular U.S. mail of the 6th December, numbering 200 bags, reached Panama safely and was brought up by the California. The mail steamer Panama, Capt. Hudson, would leave for this port on the 25th. Brownlow C. Bertie, son of the Earl of Abbingdon, died on board the California on the way up. He was on his way to China on a trip of pleasure. Doctor E.K. Chamberlain, member of the first California State Legislature, died on board of fever.
