Incorporated in New York in 1848, with an original capital of $500,000, subsequently enlarged to the sum of $3,600,000. The California, Oregon and Panamna were the first steamers dispatched to the Pacific. The California arrived at this place on the 28th of February, 1849, the Oregon on 81st March, 1849. The former was deserted by her crew— who went “gold hunting"—and was detained in port for several months. The Oregon sailed on the 11th of April on her first return trip. The present steamers owned by this mammoth company are the Golden Gate, Golden Age, Jno. L. Stephens, Sonora, Northerner, Columbia, Republic, Fremont, Constitution, and the pioneer steamers California, Oregon and Panama. The Columbia is engaged in the Oregon trade, and has made 129 voyages without an accident. The Company have lost two steamers, viz: the Tennessee, in March, 1858, and Winfield Scott, Dec., 1853, by shipwreck. Not a single life has been lost, however, by explosion or collision, which is certainly creditable to the prudent management of such a fleet of steamers. During the existence of the company, they have safely conveyed from our shores the gold export of the country to the enormous extent of from three millions to four millions of dollars per month.
