The California emigration is still going forward with vigor. The bark Eugenia
has left for Vera Cruz 134 passengers. The Harriet T. Bartlett

engaged in loading and preparing for the same destination. The Morrison,
lying at the foot of Old Slip, is particularly deserving of notice; as is also
the new steamship Panama, under command of Captain
Comstock, which will sail on the 15th of February.
The schooner Olivia, of ninety tons burden, sailed on Tuesday from pier foot of Rutgers Slip for San Francisco with about 20 passengers. Captain Paulson, and Dr. Tinker, surgeon.
