GREAT FIRE IN SAN FRANCISCO. The New York Tribune contains three col umns of lossea by the recent fire. Among oth ers in this Hit, we notice the loss of the library and papers of Frank M.Pixley, the city Attor ney, late of Detroit. The Tribune's list embra ces about six hundred and fifty persons and firms and the wrurczule loss is set down by nil the papers at $12,000,000. Supposing the list of losses to embrace all the sunerers by the tire " it presents the' almost incrediblo fact, of an average loss of $18,451 by each person and firm. In this country we have no data, by which such a result can be brought within the range of pos sibilities, in a city the size of San Francisco. Hut it must be recollected that property is esti mated by different rates from those which gov ern valuations here. The exports from San Francisco the present spring, have been greater than those of New York. The latter city re reives nearly one-half of the current revenues from customs, while its exports do ...

They drove their wagon up to Dishon s store and requested permission of him to place a box (which they had in their wagon) in his Htore for the night.

ADDRESS TO GRAY HAIR. From Harper's Monthly Magazine. Thou silvery braid, now banded o'er my brow, Before thy monitory voice I bow: Obedient to thy mandate, youth forget, And strive thy word to hear without regret Why should regret attend that onward change, "Which tells that time is coming to its range Its border line, which God approves and seals, As crown of glory to the man who feels Content in ways of righteousness to dwell 1 To such gray hair does not of weakness tell ; But rays of glory light its silvery tint, And change its summons to a gentle hint That time from all is fading fast away, But that to some its end is lasting day ; And that the angels view its pure white band, As seal of glory.frora their master's hand, And closer draw, the near ripe fruit to shield, Until to Heaven its produce they can yield. EARLY RISING. BY IIEBRICK. Did you but know, when bathed in dew How sweet the little violet grew, Amidst the thorny brake ; How fragrant blew the ambient air. O'er beds o...

TIIK 1U0N MOUNTAINS OF LAKE SUPKUIOIl. Tho editor of tho Lake Superior Journal, who lias lately visited the iron regions of tho Upper Peninsula, communicates tho following intelli gence : Tho Iron Mountains of Lake Superior aro Bit. uatcd from twelve to fifteen miles south-west from this place, and 150 miles west of Saut Sto Marie. Tho high ranges of forest covered hills rise up, ono after another, at this point, to tho height of 1000 feet abovo tho lake, as ouo goes inland, till tho principal iron locality makes its appcaranco twelve- miles from tho village of Mar quette. They wero discovered some years ago, and havo frequently been described by visitors, United States Surveyors and Geologists; but still owing to the great excitement created by tho discovery of extensive copper mines just a bovo this place, visitors to this country havo gen erally been carried beyond tho iron to tho cop per, and, comparatively speaking, but few have been attracted to this interesting region, and th...

UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN. It will become the duty of the Uoar4 of Re gents, at their annual meeting next month, to electa President of this institution. The selection of this officer i a matter of deep interest to the people of this State, be cause upon it will depend the issue of tho ques. tion, whether tho institution shall occupy the high station which its endowment and powers cntitlH it to; or whether its energies and capa cities for usefulness, shall be wasted and worn away, until it becomes a scoff and by-word among the people. The President of the literary institution, gives tone and character to nil its operations ; he calls around him and organizes an administra tion ; he is, or would be, tho head, and nnima ling spirit of its administration. If tho Presi dent is a weak and inefficient man, the Univer sity, under his guidance, sinks into insignifi cance and contempt. If ho is a strong, cner gctic, efficient man, tho institution flourishes, and proves strong and useful under h...

THE YOUNG MAN'S COUNSELLOR. Move with the multitude in the common walks of life, and you will lo unnoticed in the throng; but break from them, pursue a differ. exit path, and every eye, perhaps with reproach will bo turned toward you. What is the rule to bo observed in general conduct 1 Conform to every innocent custom as our social nature requires, but refuse compliance with whatever is inconsistent with propriety, decency, and the moral duties ; and dare to be singular in honor and virtue. In conversation, truth docs not require you to utter all your thoughts, yet it forbids you to speak in opposition to them. To open the mind to unreserved communication, is imbecility ; to cover it with a vail, to dissever its internal work ings from its external manifestations, is dissim ulation and falsehood. The concordance of the thoughts, words, and deeds, is the essence of truth, and the ornament of character. A man who has an opportunity to ruin a rival, with whom he is at enmity, without ...

DANIEL WEBSTER'S GREAT ORATION. Tho Oration delivered by Dapiel Webster on the laying of the corner stone of tho extension of the CnDitol. is contidered the most magnifi- cent of all his oratorical efforts. The subject gave him full scope for his genius, and he has used every accessory wun mo nappiesi eucct. We have time to-day only to touch it here and there, to show its unnumbered gems. Ho thus describes the feelings of the true American on the great Anniversary of our Republic: . " Fellow Citizens : On the Fourth of July, 1776, the Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, declared that these United Colonies are, and of right This for seventv-fivo vears, and still stands. It was eealed in blood. It has met dangers and over como them : it has had enemies, and it has con quered them ; it has had detractors, and it has abashed them all ; it has had doubting friends, and it has cleared all doubts away ; and now, to-day, raising its augu9t front higher th...

THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. " The long continued difficulties which the Gov ernment of the Sandwich Islands has had with the French, has led to the agitation among the Islanders of the question of annexation to the United States. An agent from the Sandwich Islands is very shortly expected nt Washington ity, if not already there, who, it Is understood, will ask the Government to accept the protect orate of the Islands, and in the event of this not being done, to make a formal cession of them to thft United States, upon the condition that they be accepted as a territory, and that a form of Government similar to that of other territories of the U. S. be given them. The present King and his Ministers, a majority of whom are from the United States, it is said, very earnestly press annexation. m A large and steadily increasing portion of the population of these Islands is American, which fact in connection with their importance to our maritime and commercial interests, it is thought will secure...

ATHEISM. BY MRS. L. II. SIGOUENEV. 44 The fool hath said In his heart, there is no God." ' No God 1 No God !" The simplest flower That on the wild is found t Shrinks, as it drinks its cup of dew, And trembles at the sound; " No God 1" astonished echo erica From out her cavern hoar, And every wandering bird that flics Keproves the Atheist lore. The solemn forest lifts its head The Almighty to proclaim ; The brooklet, on its crystal urn Doth leap to praise his name ; High sweeps the deep and vengeful sea, Along its billowy track, And red Vesuvius ops its mouth, To hurl the falsehood back. The palm tree with its princely crest The cocoa's leafy shade The bread fruit bending to its lord, In yon fair Island glade The winged seed, borno by the winds, The roving sparrows feed The melon on the deserts sands Confuto the scorncr's creed. "No Godln With what indignation high The fervent son is stirred, And the pale moon turns paler still At such an impious word I And from their burning thrones...

PROGRESS OF THE ANGLO-SAXON RACE. . By a fortunate coincidence, tlio general total of tho American census taken last year has just been received, and we aro enabled, in conjunc tion with the returns made on the 31st of March lor this country, to measures the absolute pro gress of tho Anglo-Saxon raco in its two grand divisions, and to compare tho laws of their re hpectivo growths in relation to each other and to tho rest of tho world.- It is estimated, inclu ding Ireland and the colonies, that there is a grand total of men speaking the same language and manifesting the same general tendencies of civilization, of 66,000,000, from which is to be deducted the three millions of negro slaves in tho United States, leaving a remainder of fifty three millions chiefly of Anglo-Saxon descent, and deeply impregnated with its sturdy quali ties of heart and brain, as the representative of this advancing stock. Two centuries ago there were not quite three millions of this race on the face of the ...

REFORM IN HARVARD COLLEGE. Among the many important practical meas ures and enactments of the last Legislature of Massachusetts, no one stands now more prom inent, or will be regardod hereafter as more pub licly beneficial, than the reform in the govern ment of Harvard University. Though some what distinct in its nature, when politically view, ed, from the other leading1 measures of tho ses sion, yet it partakes in a high degree, of a pub lie character and interest, and is destined, we be lieve, to shed the most extensive and benign in fluences, not only upon our own community, but upon New England at large, and even the Union itself. , It is well known that for years this ancient and munificent institution, which tho venerated fathers of New England designed and character ized in its establishment as 44 a house of learn infor the education of tho people," has been the subject of a rigid conservatism in public econ omy and literature, stongly sectarian in morals und religion, unfavo...

TUH BIRD'S SONG. I asked a sweet robin one morning in May, Who sang in the apple tree over the way, "What 'twas she was singing so sweetly about, For I'd tried a, long time, but I could not find out ; Why I'm sure," she replied, " you cannot guess wrong, Don't you know I'm singing a temperance song. " Teetotal O that's the first word of my lay, And then don't you seo how 1 rattle away ? 'Tis because I've Just dip d my beak in the spring, And brush'd the fair face of th' lark with my whig Cold water, cold water, yes, that is my song, And I love too keep singing it all the day long- M And now, my sweet miss, won't yon give me a crumb, Tor the dear little nestlings arc waiting at home 1 And one thing beside, since my story you've heard, I hope you'll remember the lay of the bird, And never forget, while you list to my song, All the birds to tho Cold Water Army belong."

PROTECTION OF THE LUMBER INTEREST. In the following article from tbo Saginaw Spirit of the Times, certain evils and disadvan tages to which tho interests of tho lumbermen of Michigan have been and are subject, are clearly and forcibly, though briefly, stated. The object from its importance, and from the evils Ion endured by lumbermen, will at once,doubU lessTarrest their attention, and unite them suf licicntly upon some plan to remedy existing evils. This vast interest, like the milling in tercst of Michigan, has been subject to to the caprice and cupidity of factor; commission men, inspectors, &c, residing at points of market, and however humble and submissive the millers may have been, we are glad to perceive that the lumborraen, who as a class are second to none in point of intelligence and energy in tho State, are about adopting a different principal of ac tion.

THE TWILIGHT HOUR BT FRANCIS C. WOODWORTH. The twilight hour! I lore It well, When golden clouds enrobe the west; It sheds around a holy spell, And lulls the care-worn soul to rest As fades the sunlight from the hill, When 6leep steals o'er the eye of day, So, at this tranquil hour and still, So fade my gloomy thoughts away. Oft as returns the twilight time, And stars beam faintly in the 6ky, A spirit from a fairer clime A loved and lost one hovers nigh. That angel form, I see it then, I listen to her hallowed prayer, And all her words of love again Fall softly on the evening air. When blends the night with fading day, How sweet the twilight's soothing power Ye sunlit hours, glide, glide away. And bring that happier, holier hour. The twilight hour 1 I love it well, When painted clouds enrobe the west It sheds around a holy spell, And bids the care-worn spirit rest. SELF RELIANCE. I have seen a delicate shrub whose beauty attracted the nd miration of passers by. It re clined graceful...
