NOTE: additional passengers were listed in the New York Herald on February 2, 1849. A complete passenger list for the bark Mara was published on February 3, 1849.

We understand that in the bark Mara, which sailed yesterday with a company of 150, for California, by way of Vera Cruz, there was a company of young men, called the Island City Mining Association. Their plans being so good, we give a short abridgement of them. 1st. They join into a stock company, for mutual protection and benefits; they carry out about $400 worth of implements for the purpose of mining, smelting, and refining the precious ore; they have bound themselves by a constitution and by-laws into a regular brotherhood; and we have no hesitation in saying, from the respectability and good habits of the young men, that they will do as well as any company that has gone to that country. We give a list of their names below:--

Bates, William
Corbesier (Corbester ?), William
Dayton, Oscar V.V.
Dickie, Charles P.
Erwin, John
Gantz, George
Gill, Dr. R.T.
Hebbard, Alonzo
Hodgkins, Senard R.
Hurd, Brittan E.
Jenkins, William
Lockwood, Albert
Millward, Joseph
Mulford, Lewis A.
Negbower, Lewis
Passage, Henry
Platt, Edwin M.
Platt, Joseph M.
Preston, A.
Taylor, Henry W.
Van Yorks, James


In the list of the passengers in the ship South Carolina, for San Francisco, which sailed on the 24th January, the name of William Van Wyck was omitted.
