CALIFORNIA NEWS. The event of leading importance 'that has transpired since the Bailing' of the last steamer is the conflagration of Downieville. This oc curred on the 21st of February. The fire broke out about 11 1-2 o'clock at night, and spread with such rapidity as soon to reduce the town to ashes. Fortunately, the largest warehouses were located in the suburbs, which were saved. The loss is estimated to exceed $500,000. The politicians of both parties have been ac tively at work within the past two weeks, mar shalling their forces and making preliminary ar rangements for the Presidential contest in No vember. Tho Legislature has done nothing of import ance during the fortnight. The bill reported by nine out of eleven members of the Committee to call a State Convention to amend the Consti tution is warmly pressed, but no vote has yet been taken upon ine question. Perfect quiet now reigns in the southern coun try. The Indians are beginning to come into the settlements, Mr. Bartlet...

Absorbed in their own private interests and affairs her citizens have plodded on in a qui t wv. in the pursuits of commerce, agriculture and the mechanic arts, and, until very recently, apparently quite uninterested in the manifold enterprizes of the day calculated speedily to de velop the abundant resources of Michigan, and thus to add a hundred fold to her wealth and po sition among her sisters of the Union. Meanwhile other States, west of us, have ex erted every energy, and strained every nerve, to overcome natural obstacles, by attracting emi gration in all possible ways, and by all possible inducements, to settlo within the...

A monster Lake Fish. The Maumee Times gives the most astonishing "fresh water fish sto ry" that we ever heard. The monster was caught In the Maumee river, with a seine, and took two horses and thirty fishermen to draw it in. The Times says U was the largest fish ever taken in those waters. It measured from the tip of its nose, or mouth, to the end of its tail, 23 feet 4 inches, and in circumference, in the largest place in its body, it was 4 feet 9 inches. On ooenin" it it was found to contain in its stomach two good sized muscalonges, about half a barrel of pickerel, together with a very res pectable complement of the smaller members of the finny tribe, tnus proving conclusively inai, 44 the Inrger fish swallow the little ones." There was also Xound in its insides, two joints of Btove pipe, a pair of old boots, and the remnant of an India rubber over coat.

Come, genial Spring ! we chide thy long delay, And view the sterile landscape w ith a sigh "Winter lingering on the lap of May," And storm-clouds gathering o'er a vernal sky. Fair May has come 1 alas ! nor blooming ilowcrs, Nor grassy leaves, nor leaves unfolding greet her, Nor rich festoons o'erhang tho sylvan bowers Scarce has the landscape one gay, spring-like feature. No mild south wind brings its reviving showers, But northern blasts usurp the stormy sky ; The lurid sun wakes not the shrinknig flowers, And the chilled germ but vegetates to die. The red-breat's merry warbling is not heard, Or sadly hushed Into a mournful s...
