THE UNITED STATES. LIVERPOOL, SATURDAY.âThe ship Wisconsin, Captain Muuford, which arrived to-day, has put us in possession of accounts from Now York to t:ie 14th uit. The accounts from California are exciting, but deplorable. The dates from San Francisco are to the 25th of December. The following extracts contain the pith of the intelligence :â Since I last wrote to you, affairs have been getting worse. We have no government, either civil or military, and the country is full of lawless men, who are committing the most shocking outrages. Murders and robberies are of daily, and I might almost say, of hourly occurrence. Not an account occurs from the north, south, or the interior, but notifies the commu- nity of new acts of villany which go unpunished. Within six weeks more than twenty murders have occurred in a white population of less than 15,000 souls. The people are now acting in self-defence; and four or live days since three men were hung by Lynch law, sixty miles from this place; The United States revenue laws are now in force here, and will yield an income of say 450,000 dollars the ensuing year, and perhaps more, and four-fifths of this amount will be collected at this port. Much dissatisfaction exists at the payment of such a tax on the part of the inhabitants without either a Government or a representation. This feeling is gaining ground from day to day." 0 Z, The gold mines continue to be as rich as before, although the rainy season has caused many to suspend their work. There can be no doubt that at least 4,000,000 dollars of gold, at sixteen dollars per ounce troy, has been taken from the mines."
