The P. M. Steamship Company steamer California, Capt. LeRoy, arrived from Panama yesterday. Among passengers is Col. John C. Fremont. She brings dates from New York to Aug. 21st, and from New Orleans to the 22d. The domestic news is of no importance, being but two days later than was received by the Cortes.


The following is her memoranda and list of passengers:

Memoranda.

Mail steamer California, Capt. LeRoy, sailed from San Francisco Saturday, July 15th, at 5 P. M., about an hour subsequent to the departure of the Nicaragua steamer Sierra Nevada. Passed the latter steamer on the 19th, and left her in our wake. Touched at Acapulco, as usual, after a short trip of only seven days and ten hours, and arrived at Panama on the 30th of July, 14 days from San Francisco.

Sailed from Panama on the 3d Sept., at an early hour of the morning, with about 500 passengers and 325 bags of U. S. mail matter from New York the 21st Sept, by steamer Emgire (sic) City, and from New Orleans the 22d September by steamer Eldorado. On the 9th, at 2 P. M., 50 miles south east of Acapulco, saw steamship John L. Stephens bound down. Learned by report that she had left the latter place, that she had experienced unusually heavy south-easterly gales since leaving San Francisco, which accounts for the length of her trip.

The California sailed from Acapulco on the morning of the 10th, and about 7 A. M. passed the Pacific about 30 miles out of Acapulco; 15th, saw a clipper barque anchored in a bay called San Bartolomo, close to the main land, in a south easterly direction from Ceros Island, distance 32 miles, and at the same time saw schr standing in the same point.

Passengers crossed the Isthmus with ease and there have been no deaths among them since leaving new York or New Orleans. Weather has been generally fine, with exception of heavy winds from Margareta Island up.
