Bow of the Star of India, with the Californian in the distance

That's the Californian off in the fog, the State Ship of California. says:
"The Californian is a re-creation of the C.W. Lawrence, a Revenue Service cutter built in Washington D.C. in 1848. In 1849, the C.W. Lawrence under the command of Captain Alexander Fraser was sent to California to secure revenue, relieve distressed merchant vessels and to make scientific investigations of the harbors." Posted by Picasa
