Messrs. Jesse Timanus and Fitzpatrick, well know citizens of this place, started for California on Monday. A party of ten, including toe of the Messrs. Moses, are waiting, we learn, for navigation to be opened, when they, too, will be off. The company of fifty, of whom we made mention some days ago, which includes Messrs. Joseph Talbot, Wm. B. Norman and others, are maturing their preparations for the overland route; and an additional company is proposed to be formed, under the auspices of Lieut. W.S. Schenck, of the Navy. – Cincinnati Enquirer, Feb. 21.


The fever prevails at the Island, and has carried off Mr. Crawford, John S. Dan, Joseph Gardner, Mr. Hill, and Mr. Carter, to the gold land.
