Rumors prevail that Hood's at my was marching

hat a battle will be fought at Columbia to day.

The Richmond papers of Saturday last dev ote tftUe'ii
space to the discussion of Northern politics. The re
sult of the election is considered a declaration that
the Northern people will have fonr years more war,
and therefore the toutliern people are urt;ed to think
of war lor an indefinite period. They desire to have
no talk or trouble about questions cf peace, aud in

fcignatiou of McClellao was to-day formally accepted
by the President, to date from the 8th inst.. as Ma.

The Tribune's Washington special despatch says
that owing to the continued prostration of Secretary

the present at least, declines the honor.

In conversation with a gentleman who was resided

earthquakes have occurred annullay with one or two
exceptions during the eatire period. Only on one
occasion (1S5) does be remember experiencing a
a shock at all approaching in severity tbat of Satur

has almost iuvariably beeu from west to east, and he
Hcco'ints forthis by supposing that the infernal con
vuisicu of the earth beneath has to find vent in the
crater of Mount Baker situated to tue east of us.
This volcano has not had any visible eruption for
several years. On the la-Vocoaslu'i it seut up a dense
volume of srucke, and cccasional'-y a bright flame
was seen to issue from the iery furnace. Another
old resident informs us that the appearance of the
summit cf Mount Baker has undergone a material
change within late years, giving room for the con
jecture that large portions have crumbled away aud
descended into the yawuiug abyss of the crater which
lies between the two highest peaks.
The following are the facts about the seizure of the

The hland Queen left Sandusky at 3 p. m., on the

she found the Parsons in possession of pirates, who
at once seized the Island Queen. The soldiers were
paroled as "Confederate" prisoners, and the other
passeugers sworn to secrecy for twenty-four hours.
The Island Quten was then lashed to the Parsons,
and the two started for Sandusky. When out five
miles the water cock of the Island Queen's pony
engine was broken oil, opening a hole in her side,
and she was cast off and left to sink. The Parsons
p.assed on to the mouth of Sandusky Bay, and after
hovering about some time, apparently sign ding to
those inside, started for the Detroit river, arriving at
Fighting Island, on the Cauada tide, about S o'clock
this morn": g, where Capt. Orr, his cleik ond en
gineer were landed, au l the steamer burned, as pre
parations were made for that object. The Captain
has no doubt that the seizure ot the United States
steamer Michigan aud the liberation of the John
son's Island prisoners were the objects of the plot.
Both steamers were stripped of valuables. V. F.
RrssiA Incendiary Fires throughout Russia.
The Moscow Gazette publishes a frightful list of
fires which, since April last, have taken place in dif
ferent parts of Russia, and it adds, that the account
of the principal disasters is not complete. The woik
cf incendiaries commenced ut the eud of April, iu
the Govi-rnrxcnt of Kalonea, by the destructiou of
fifty-four bouses; next at Okhansk, two hundred and
four houses were burnt; at Setdobok, four fifths cf
the town was destroyed; nt Mozir, one half of the
houses; at Mole. gn. more than two huaelred; aud at
the fair of Nijni Novgorod, Cfteeu hundred booths
and OLie hundred aud forty-eight houses; at Patrofsk
there were six fires in June, and entire quarters of
the towu were consumed. The powder magazine of
Nazan and that of Okhta, near Petersburg, were
blown up. At R:ga two fires occurred, the same at
Tunien, where the finest quarters of the town were
consumed. At Orenburg six hundred houses were
burnt, and Baki is a heap of ruins. Four conflagra
tions took p lace at St. Petersburg, six at Simbirsk, a
town which, ns well as Yaroslavi, are now iu ruins.
Previous to April two imperial cannon foundries
were laid waste. Fresh disasters are apprehended,
and the Russian Government is called upou to alopt
prompt and rigorous measures.
Situation of Things at Richmond. The New
York Herald gives the following opinion :
Geu. Grant at present stands between Lee and
Hood; but Lee, by the evacuation of Richmond, may
in a single day's march get in between Sherman and
Grant. The moral effect of the loss of Richmond we
know would be fatal to the so-called Confederacy,"
but it would not be so speedily fatal as a decisive de
feat of Lee's army, involving the loss of Richmond.
Th question before long will be determineel by a
Ftep.lthy evacuation or by the bloodiest struggle of the
war. General Grant is preparing himself at all
points for this latter alternative; but we do not aban
don the idea that from the strength aud completeness
ot his preparations he will yet secure the rebel capi
tal without another genera! engagement. The alter
native, we bobeve, will soon be made apparent to
Jeff Davis, if it be net now, that he must abandon
Richmond to save Lee's army, or sacrifice that army
in a vain struggle to bold the city.

The London Times's says : Advices from New York
in regard to the mode in which the Washington Gov
ernment receive-d the news of the capture of the Flo
rida are awnited with the greatest interest by the
mercantile wcrid. One re:' sou for the importance
attributed to the scadvic-s consists in the inference
that if the atlair be permitted or endorsed by Lincoln's
Government, it will henceforth entirely extinguish
any power ou the purt of the United States to assail
by privateers the commerce of any nation th:it it may
be at war with, since the precedent will establish a
