California Bound by


The bark Courier, Captain Gardner, the second vessel of the Dispatch Line to California, left the wharf at one o’clock, on Saturday, amidst the cheers of hundreds of friends and relations of the passengers. The steamer left her below Governor’s Island, and she sailed beautifully down the harbor with a fresh north wind. The passengers were in high glee, being well satisfied with the promptness of the Dispatch Line. The Courier is noted as a fast sailor, and will, no doubt, make a short passage. The following gentlemen went out in her as passengers:--
