We find that a great many of our citizens are made giddy with the gold prospects held out by the reports we have received from California. The consequence is, that some have pulled up stakes and bent their course to that El Dorado. Yesterday another company left upon the Dr. Franklin for Pittsburgh, en route for New York, from thence they intend to ship. Their names are James Craney, James Anderson, Sterritt Smith and Wm. Crichton.
