From the iV, Y. Com. Ado., June 24.
FROM CALIFORNIA. The U. S. mnil steam ship Crescent City, Captain Stoddnrd. nrrivod nt quarantine nt luilf pnst 12 o'clock this morning ami nt her dm k at G o'clock. She brines one hundred and fifty six passengers, in whoso hands, tho ofli cers (if tho vessel report, arc about $250,000 in gold dust. The Crescent City arrived out nt Chaerns, in ei'uht and a half davs from New York; left Chnirres early on the morning of the 1 1th of June, and nrrivod nt tho dock in Kingston nt 5 P. M. on tho 10th. thus making the passage in two nnd a half davs. She left Kingston on the 17th. at half. past 5 P. M. By this arrival we have advices from San Francisco to the 15th May, being fifteen days later than our pre vious intelligence. Great Fire at San Francisco. A most destructive firo took place at San Francisr.o on the morning of tho 4th May. An extra Alta California, Issued on the day of the conflagration, furnishes the following particulars'. About 4 o'clock this morning tho alarm of fire was given in Portsmouth Square, and flames were seen issuing from the building-known ns the United States Exchange. Before many per sons had collected the entire building was enveloped in flames, winch com municated with lightning like rapidity to the Plienix Exchange, toward Washington street, and to the Empire House upon the Clav street side. Alarm nnd confusion pervaded all sides, and nil the ellorts which could be used to check the (lames were utterly fruitless. The scene was ani mated beyond expression, ami hun dreds were sen hurrying to and fro endeavoring to clear their stores of goods, and convey them to a place of safety The flames spread across Washington street and caught the building upon tho opposite corner, and nlsotheS. A. Wright Hall. What little assistance could bo offered to ward cheeking the flames was of no avail, and the huge flakes of burning materials, which were wafted by the breeac and fell upon the surrounding buildings, rendered their destruction inevitable. Tho entire block between Kearney, Clay, Washington and Mont gomery streets, was entirely destroy ed, with' the exception of Dubois's banking house, nnd Burgoyne & Co.'s. The books, money, nnd valuable papers in almost all the mercantile houses were savd. Upon the nrilt side of Washington street rmarlv all the buildings were c tnsumed to Mont gomery, including the large brick building occupied ns the National Theatre. Taking a backward course, the flames spread across Washington street and destroyed tho Bella Union. Haley House, Washington Hall, "t Charies Hotel, Alta California printing establishment, Frazer's building, nnd all the edifices up as far as Dnpont st., sweeping through to Pacific, nnd going down again to the lower corner. The loss of property is verv great, variously estimated at from three to Jive millions of dollars. As soon ns it was rendered certain that the North sido of the square must bo consumed, we had stepped our morning edition, which had just gone to press, and commenced moving our press and materials into the plaza. We were enabled through iho kindness of friends nnd acquaintances, who promptly came to our assistance, to succeed in saving a considerable portion of our material nnd our presses, although much damaged from fire The budd ings both front and rear were entirely . consumed. Upon the south side of ('lay St. aM the stores were badly scorched nnd seriously damaged, but were saved from destruction bv the arduous exertions of the citizens and property holders, who threw water upon the scorching fronts, and kept the roofs covered with wet blankets. One or two engines nlsodid good ser vice in that section- There ' no doubt whatever that this fire was the act of incendiaries, and we are happy to hear that there is a prospect of their arrest. Suspicion has already nttachod itself to three persons, we learn, and the police are upon their track. One of them has been arrested. It is stated that two lads sleeping in the basement of the Empire in the bowl;na saloon per ished in the flames. Several person were injured by the discharge of firfl arms caused by the heat, but none ot them dangerously. The flumes were not subdued until about elcen o cIock, and while we write the emhers are still blazing brightly and glowing with angry heat, as if in triumph at the work ol devastation of the fire khig. Our neighbors of the Pacific News moved all their materials nut of their office, hut succeeded in saving their building. The office of tho Journal of Com merce was destroyed, and a portion of the type and material of tho estab lishment. The effects of this conflagration will fall heavily upon the city at the present time, an! probably produce a temporary depression in business. Th! scarcity of water, and the utter absence of any thing like an organi zation in the working parties, render ed their services less available than they would otherwise have been. A reward of 8100.000 has been offered by His Honor the Mayor for the detection of the incendiaries. If we take into consideration the great extent of property destroyed, covering an area moro than three times as large as that of the December lire, wo do not think the estimated loss of four million of dollars is exug gerated. The San Francisco Journal of May 15 says : The work of ro construction goes bravely on. Already some forty lour new houses are in progress of erec tion, some of equal dimensions with those that were destroyed by the fire, and not a few nearly completed. In a few days more, the wreck of the late conflagration will he cleared away, and scarcely a vestige of devastation will remain to mar tho general aspect of spirit and prosperity which charac terizes our unusually lair citv. The energy and alacriiv the expedients and resources, which distinguish the Anglo American population of Cali lornia are conspicuously cviue.eil m these rapid and cheering operations From the Trinity River. - Tli schooner Iteyerson, arrived at San Francisco on the night of the llth ol May, brings the latest intelligence Irom the new settlements in Ine vi jcinitvof Trinidad Bay. The Alta California says : We regret to hear of another seri ous accident to a boat's crew. From tho statement furnished us it appears that on tho evening of the 27lh of April, five passengers of tho brig Cameo left St. George's Point in whalo boat bound for Trinidad Hay. When about 10 miles out, the sea being rough, and the boat leaking very badlv, thev became alarmed nnd put for shore, when on landing their boat was capsized in tho surf. 1 he fol lowing named persons were drowned: 1r. ritzgcrald, from boston, Mr. Frederic Arnold, from New Orleans, Mr. Wistofl" and Gruber, Germans Air. Eugene I)u Bertram! was saved by an Indian, who jumped into the sun to Ins assistance. Mr. Arnold has a wife and children in San Frati' cisco. Ths boat which proved so clisas trous to these gentlemen, was indeed an ill fated one, being the identical one belonging to the Arabian from which M"ssrs. iJache, Browning and Peoples wi-re lost. From the (J:li Regions. The Pa cifii; News of May 15. mentions that a mass of go'd and quartz, weighing fifty pounds was found near Mariposa, and sold for sixteen hundred dollars. The Stockton Times furnishes the following items of intelligence from the Southern mines: Mr. Peter Mahan, of Sonora, in forms us that the placer at Columbia city, (about five miles from Sonora) is not less than three miles square. On Friday last a llexican found a lump of gold lying near the surface, weighing four pounds seven ounces, and Mr. Mahan has also in his pos session a lump weighing seventeen ounces, found near tho same spot. The placer has been discovered to bo of extraordinary depth. One large hole has been dog to the depth of sixty-two feet through red soil of a volcanic nature, and the quartz has not yet been reached. Throughout the whole djpih. from six feet below the surface, gold in great abundance has hern taken out.. It is sup ose I that the wl ole area of this immense placer is of the same character. From many holes miners have taken out from four to five pounds of gold per day. Several recent and important dis coveries have been found, and nearly every man is making an ounce a day. Recently, in the Mariposa country, a lump weighing several pounds was found just below the surface of the earth. Col. Duprce was recently killed in Hinds county, Mississippi, by his son-in-law. Mr. J. S. Graves. The par ties had a difference for some time previously. On the 8th instant they met at a church nar Brownsville. Graves left the church, but was so.w followed by Duprce, who approached him and asked if he was armed. Graves, hoping to prevent a difficulty, said he was not. Uupree then pulled Graves from his horse, and cut him several times with a knife, when Graves drew a pistol and shot the colonel through the body. Colonel Dupree died in about two days. Mr. Graves gave himself up to the au thorities and was acquitted, the evi dence proving justifiable homicide. Hydrophobia. A girl, named Fowler, aged 14 years, residing with her parents, in Green street, Phi.'adcl phia. has been suffering under an at tack of hydrophobia since Thursday, which is supposed to result from the bite of a cat. The girl lived with Mr. Seth Smith, Treasurer of the District of Spring Garden, and on an after noon in last March, whilst she was sitting with the family, a cat that was kept about the house became sudden ly mad. or seized with a fi'; where upoi she proceeded to kick tho animal out of doors. In so rioim. the cat jumped nt her and bit her on the nrm. ni i ... i ne wound soo:i henle I, nnd nothing more was thought of 'he affair, nor was there any nonrohension of hy drophobia on tho part of anyone. On i tiursday last, at the residence of her parents, she was taken nhirmintrlv ill. and evinced a terrible dread of water Spasm succeeded spasm. during which her suffoi inos were enough to horrify II around her. She was still alive on Friday afternoon; but little hope, however, was entertained for her re covery. From tup, Rio Guavdr The Sentinel of tho 12 instant siys: "By tho arrival of the steamer Hunt from the Rio Grande City, we learn that Captain Ford, of tho Hungers, has had three different engagements with the Indians between the Rio Grande and the Nueces rivers, in each of which he was victorious, ' nptnin Kurd's command is said to have killed from fifteen to eighteen of these sav ages, and taken one prisonera raie thing in Indian warfare, as the Indians seldom surrender with life. One man from tho Rangers was killed. Mr. Gillespie, while charging over the bodv of an Indian, was shot with an arrow, nnd died almost immediately There is now no longer any doubt ns to the tribe to which these marauders belong. The prisoner taken is a young Camanchu warrior, an I lie reports, us wo understand, between five anil six hundred of his tribe in the valley fie tween the Rio Grande and the Nueces, with intention of plundering the in habitants." Ditrss and Mf.hit. Dirard, the famous French painter, when very young, was tho bearer of a loiter of introduction to Lnnjiinais, then of the council of Napoleon. The young painter was shabbily nttiretf, and his reception was extremely cold; but Lanjunais discovered in him such striking proofs of talent, good sense and amiability, that on Girard's rising to take leave he rose too, and accom panied his visitor to the ante-chamber. The change wajso striking that Gi rard could not avoid an expression of surprise. " My young friend," said Lanjunais. anticipating the inquiry, "we receive an unknown pers n according to his dress; we lake leave of mm according in bis merit." Df.atii or Jacuij I1ys. Our obit uarj record today includes the name of an old and faithful servant of the public, Jacob llavs, for nearly fifty years high constahle of the city of New York, and for n large portion of his earlier life one of the most active and efficient police agents of this or any other country. Mr. Hays was horn in New Rochelle, West Chester county, in 1772. His father was a prominent vVliig of the revolution, nnd had been one of the soldiers engaged in the ill fated expedition of Ge . Brad ock. Jacob, at an early age. attracted the notice of the officers of tho portion of the Vmrricaii armv ihen stationed in Westchester 'o.. an I by bis zeal, activity and intelligence, was frequently of service to the hi' cause, in the course of that eventful period of border warf.ne.

The fol lowinrr entire families were lost: Thomas Uhodes. wife two sons, and three daughters; Wil'inm Walker, wife and son; William Taylor, wife, two sons, and two daughters. In all, one hundred and fifty-six dead bodies have been found. Twon lylour women, forty-seven men, and iwentv-five children, were buried in a trench on the lake shore near where the sad disaster happened, ylrraotp? ments were immediately set on foot at Cleveland, however, to have all these bodies disinterred, that they miht be transported to that city, and be consigned to separate graves.
