The British ship Sir Charles Napier, Captain Webster, arrived at San Francisco on the 21st of May, ninety days from Panama, with 18 cabin passengers and 156 steerage.  When one week from Panama, the measles, dysentery and fever began to show themselves, and continued with more or less virulence for about three weeks, in which time no less than 36 were consigned to the deep.  A succession of calms on and near the equator, no doubt caused this great mortality, as the heat at that time was most excessive. Although the passage was 90 days from port, there were not 30 of them on which there was wind enough to keep the sails full.

Among the deaths we regret to notice the following from Georgia:
March 9th Thomas Banks, Murray county, aged 45.  1st M. Rodgers, Cherokee county, aged 22.  6th Burns, Jackson county, aged 21.  3d, T. Havies, Jackson county, aged 34.  7th, Z. Grindle, Gordon county, aged 35.  18th, Jno Sears, Gordon county, aged 22.  19th, T. Robertson, Gordon county, aged 26.  April 15th, E. Rouse, Lumpkin county, aged 24.  March 28, G. W. Tumlin, Cass county, aged 20.  April 3, W. J. Croane, Gordon county, aged 19.—March 8, Adley, (black boy) Burke county, aged 26.  4th J. Vincent, Cass county, aged 30.  5th A. D. Loveless, Cass county, aged 22.  Feb. 24, J. M. Kincaid, Burke county, aged 22.  May 2. James Hamblin, Murray county, aged 33.  3d, Z. Baker, Lumpkin county, aged 36.  11th, Boly Wickett, Gordon county, aged 23.  10th, Osborne, (black boy) Burke county, aged 18.  5th G. Carson, Lumpkin county, aged 26.  30th, A. K. Bird, Lumpkin county, aged 23.  25th Wm. Birt, Lumpkin county, aged 20.  13, A. Reid, Cass county, aged 25.
