Passage

Daily Alta California, May 6, 1850, San Francisco, California

ARRIVAL OF THE ISTHMUS.

This steamship, Capt. Hitchcock, arrived on Saturday afternoon, at five oclock, and anchored off Rincon Point. She left Panama on the 9th ult., and brought up 225 passengers. Her running time was but a little over 18 days. She brings no later dates from the United States, nor have we been able to obtain any Panama papers later than those received by the Gold Hunter. The Sarah Sands, propeller, sailed on the same day, and the two vessels passed and repassed each other several times on the trip. The Sands may therefore be hourly expected. We publish a list of passengers by the Isthmus.

Marine News Port of San Francisco.The Isthmus is the first vessel of the opposition line which is to be composed of the Columbus, Republic, another Antelope, making in all four vessels. These ships connect with the Ohio, Georgia and Falcon on the Atlantic, under the superintendence of George Law. The general agent at this place is Mr. Oliver Charlick, who arrived on the ship.

The Sarah Sands, now expected, will be the first of Mr. Howards line embracing the New Orleans, Northerner, and one new vessel in course of completion, which with the regular mail line will give us a weekly communication with Panama, and the northern cities.
