The Emigration to California

Our Philadelphia correspondent writes that the ship Levant, Capt. Moses Hoyt, belonging to the Aspinwalls, will go down the river on Monday (this) morning, in tow of the Rappahannock, bound for California. She has on board the frames of ten houses, a launch thirty feet long, eight boats of smaller dimensions, and the hull, cabin, boiler, engine and propeller of a steamboat, belonging to the Pacific Adventurers’ Association, the members of which form the great bulk of her forty-nine passengers. Two entire families go out, comprising two females and eight children.
