in if of to Cor- a Mariposa. Company. The Mariposa Company, lately formed in New York, have purchased the interest of Mark Brumagim and Trenor W. Park in the Estate known as "Las Mariposas," or, in plain English, 'The Butterflies," and as some names now prominently before our readers will appear during the recital, we consider this as good an Mpportunity as any to give a brief history of "Las Mariposas :" This celebrated tract of land was originally owned under a grant from the Mexican Government to Juan B. Alvarado, and was by him sold to John C. Fremont, and after a time resold under a judgment recovered by Francisco O. Campo against J. C. Fremont and other parties, through which sale the interest of Messrs. Brumagim and Garrison to the estate came, and finally passed into the hands of "The Mariposa Company." which company, (organized and in corporated under the laws of,, the State of Aew York.) either forgetting, or being wil fully blind to, entirely ignored the claims of Messrs. Brumagim aud damson ; but these gentlemen, not being either blind to their own interests or forgetful of their cfaims for moneys actually advanced to Messrs, J. C. Fremont and T. W. Park, offered to the now company a chance to purchase from them all tluar interest in "L;is Marripos.-ts"-for the - surti of (in round figures) $175,000. This offer tho company indignantly refused, aud as Messrs. Brumagim and Garrison were cool, clear-headed business 'men, they immediately proceeded to commence operations to enforce their claim ; and, having first obtained an extensive an 1 thorough abstract of their title, proceeded to institute legal proceedings for the sums advanced and interest thereon. The New York Company, finding that they found parties wh would not be scared, and believing that discretion was the better part of vaior, , offered, like Captain Scott's celebrated coon, to ''come down," and were finally allowed to do so to the amount of $353jO00 in gold coin. The result is gratifying all round ns the sellers are amply recompensed, and at last the Mariposa Company of New York have obtained an absolutely perfect title to the grant whose name heads this article.
