Passenger Lists: San Francisco 1800s

SS Golden Gate

Arrive San Francisco

SS Golden Gate
February 26, 1852
Captain R. L. Patterson, USN
From Panama


14 days from Panama, via Acapulco, Mexico. Left Panama on February 12, 1852 at 4 p.m. Arrived at Acapulco on February 18th, but in consequence of not being permitted to coal at night, was detained until the afternoon of February 19th. On February 22nd, in lat. 26-17N, long. 114W, spoke the brig Eliza Taylor, from Panama, with a large number of passengers, bound for San Francisco. The Golden Gate brings intelligence that a large number of persons bound for California are pouring into the city of Panama.

February 28, 1852, Sacramento Daily Union
Sacramento, California

The Golden Gate arrived on Friday evening with eleven hundred passengers -- Among w hom are sixty ladies and thirty children.

There were a large number of persons on the Isthmus waiting for opportunities to get away. Several vessels were up for San Francisco.

Mr. George Loder, well knokwn as a composer of much eminence, arrived in the Golden Gate. He comes to make arrangements for the appearance of Madame Biscaccianti, who is on her way to this country.

The National Intelligencer publishes the correspondence between Mr. A. B. Corwine, U. S. Consul at Panama, arid the Agents of the Pacific Mail Steamship Line in relation to through tickets to California, issued in New York by Mr. E. Mills. The Agent, Mr. Edward Flint, and Messrs. Zachrisson, Nelson & Co., deny the validity af the tickets, and state that neither Mr. Mills, nor Messrs. Berford & Co., for whom he acts, has any authority to issue them. Mr. Curwinc states:

"That hundreds of our countrymen have arrived in Pana, with tickets purchased from the parties mentioned in this correspondence, and, being unable to procure a passage thence to San Francisco with these tickets, the greater part of them having expended their all in the investment, have been compelled to remain on the Isthmus in the most abject poverty and distress, and not a few of them have contracted disease and died."

. . . The road to Gorgena is now in good travalling condition. Passengers who come in now almost daily, express themselves but little fatigued with either riding or walking. Soon the ralway will be completed thither, and then for a short and delightful trip across the Isthmus (Herald, Feb 9)

Our streets are somewhat thinned, but still the rush is very great, and there will, in all probability, be three arrivals at Chagres within a week, the West Wind, the Cherokee, and the Union. These cannot bring less than twelve hundred.

Ere our readers have perused this paragraph, the Golden Gate and her throng of passengers will in all probability be steaming at railway pace for the Land of Gold; and shall we say it -- there is not another steamer in the Bay! The sailing ships, too, are mostly filled, yet not despatched, owing to the unavoidable delay in fitting them up properly for the comfort of the passengers.

Deaths on Board:
February 16, 1852: J.W. Kidder, aged 23 years, from Alexandria, Genessee County, New York, died of dysentery.
February 24, 1852: Thomas J. Blossom, aged 23 years, from Turner, Maine, died from fever. 
February 26, 1852: O.D. Braisted, aged 26 years, from Essex, Essex County, New York, died of dysentery.


Gold coin, 144 packages of express matter and 14 packages of unspecified merchandise.
