Baldwin, arrived about 12 o'clock last night from San Juan, whence she sailed on the 6th inst., bringing news from Calfornia to the 15th ult. When 12 hours out the Webster experienced a severe Norther, which lasted several days.

She made the pas-sage out to San Juan in 10 ½ days, towing the steamboat Central America from the wharf in New-York to San Juan. The English steamer Dee arrived at San Juan on the 4th inst., and sailed again on the 5th, with 50 returned Californians as passengers bound for New-Orleans.

The news from California by this arrival is unim-portant. We take the following summary from The San Francisco Picayune of the 14th inst.:
The "deeds of high emprise," which in days of yore used to fill the columns of our steamer papers, redounding to the glory or shadowing forth the mis-fortunes of our city, have entirely ceased; and the only extra animation we have evinced of late, apart from that usually consequent on our every day energy and enterprise, was but a reflection of the ex-citement occasioned in other parts or the Union by the reports of the unfortunate expedition to Cuba. Great hauls, beautiful specimens, new and extensive diggins and quartz dis-coveries, together with wharf and city improve-ments, massive fire-proof buildings of brick, iron and stone, and increased facilities for locomotion by land and water, now absorb public attention, to the exclusion of dreadful conflagrations, daring robbe-ries, and summary hangings. The Vigilance Com-mittee is no longer needed; and as a consequence of this state of things, business is resuming it wont-ed activity and the busy hum of industry is heard in every city and village, on the banks of every river, along the slope of every mountain, and in the depths of every gulch and valley.
The Southern Convention for the division of the State is to be held on Monday dext, the 20th instant. Those favorable to the project have at length united upon Santa Barbara as the place where the Delegates are to assemble. San Diego, Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Joaquin, and other Counties have elected their Delegates. Seve-ral addresses have been published in support of the movement. Every exertion is being made by the Collector of City Taxes and his assistants to pay the interest on the funded debt of the City.
Some idea of the traffic between San Francisco and the Southern mines may be formed from the fact that there are at this moment ten steamers plying between San Francisco and Stockton. There are ten, also, plying between San Francisco and Sacra-mento. The latter are for the most part of a larger size than those on the San Joaquin River, and make the trip of about 120 miles in from seven to eight hours. In the elegance of their accommodations and the luxuries of their larder, they might compare favorably with any passenger vessels in the world. There are ten other steamers plying from Sacra-mento to different places above that city. One year ago there was but one steamboat in Oregon, the Co-lumbia ; now there are eleven steamboats of differ-ent kinds running in the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, not including the Pacific steamers See Gull and Columbia, running between Oregon and California.
Stockton, in the early part of this month, became the scene of outrages of a similar character to those which, some time since, disgraced San Francisco.—On the 3d inst., three men were shot in the vicinity of Stockton ; on Saturday evening an attempt was made to shoot two others, without provocation ; on the same night, a Mexican was most inhumanly butchered in a house in the outskirts of the city; and on Sunday morning an attempt was made to shoot a gentleman for no reason that he could imagine.—This is a most unprecedented state of things in that city, and has excited considerable sensation in the community.
As the steamer Republic was on her last trip from Panama to San Francisco, she struck upon a rock near Point Blanco, about twenty miles from this city, during the prevalence of a dense fog. Owing to the judicious and skillful management of Captain Hudson, his officers, passengers and crew, she was kept afloat till the California went down to her re-lief. The latter towed her into San Francisco. The damage, it is thought, will be easily repaired.
The steamer Miner, loaded with hay, was com-pletely destroyed by fire last week, while entering the Suisun Bay, from the Slough, just below New-York. A spark from the smoke-stack lit upon the hay, and, in a moment, the whole was enveloped in flames. One man was burnt to death, and another dangerously so. The boat was a totalloss.
The Mormons have at length taken possession of the rancho of San Bernardino, near Los Angeles, for which they paid $102,000. $25,000 was paid down, and the remainder is to be paid in two equal annual payments. It is said to be their intention to build a great city there, and a railroad to Salt Lake is confi-dently spoken of It is also said, that the heads of the Church in Deseret have given directions to the Mormons in Europe, that all the emigration to this country must, in future, come by the way of the Isthmus of Panama to San Diego.
The population of San Bernardino is to be increased by five thousand within the next six months. It contains within its boundaries more than eighty thousand acres of excellent land, a great part of be irrigated. The Santa Anna river runs it, furnishing a large and unfailing supply of ter, and having excellent mill seats. The near are covered with pines sufficient to Southern California for perior Court, associate Judge Bennett, Hong Kong, days from steps are being taken to induce the Chinese to run an electric telegraph on the coast. The rebel forces have had several skirmishes with the imperial troops, and have been rather success-ful.
An attempt is again being made to establish steam communication between the Sandwich Islands and San Francisco, and the first steamer is expected to be placed upon the route in about a month.
The weather, throughout Oregon and Upper and Lower California, is delighful. The north-west wind has completely died away, and nature never wore a more smiling aspect under an Italian sky.
The Agricultural, Mining, Mechanical and Com-mercial interests are in the full tide of prosperous career. Mechanics readily obtain steady employ-ment at $8 per day, and common laborers at $5, and, from the large number of buildings in progress, it is probable they will be all engaged for the next six months.
