California Emigration.

The California emigration is still going forward with vigor. The bark Eugenia has left for Vera Cruz 134 passengers. The Harriet T. Bartlett sailed yesterday for Chagres, having on board about 70 persons, mostly young men, intelligent and enterprising, for California. A host of vessels are busily 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.
