The public h?re generally, have been much interested in the organization of this regiment, from the fact that it is the first to sail from our port for a foreign soil, and is composed of mon taken from the heart of society?hardy mecharics and farmers, who are the pioneers to found a new empire on the shores of the Pucific, depending on their own exertions and perseverance for Buccesa, on their arrival at their destination. This regiment has been raised mainly through the exertions of J. D.

In thi* place alo?e no lei* than eight hundred and sixty house*?among them pone of the best house*? wero either much injured or totally deitrojed, the frightened inhabitant* flocking to tha hill* in crowd*, when thny taw that the place muat inevitably be inundated. The houie* immediately around the Plaza, including the church and the dwelling* of the prieit and alcaide were injured but little, although the wateri gave even theie a thorough toaking. To compute the entire Ion austained by Camargo were impoiaible ; it would not amount to * much a* many might auppo?e, for hundred* ol the hou*e* were of little value, yet the amount of luft'ering, a* uooitofthe people have loat their all, ha* been irlgbiinl. Many amusing itoriei are told of the maani resorted to by the *uperstltfeu* old women to itay the progrea* of the dreaded flood One old crone, when the water* lacked but a few inchei of runniug over the banki, ruihed to thu river with a small imxge of our Saviour and the Holy Virgin, an!

Again she wai told to leave; hut not until a heavy aurge of water reached her, accompanied by a crumbling iu of the bank*, did *be receive ufflcient admonishment that her prayer* were of no avail. Then she t irned and ran a* last a* she could, and well wn it thai i-Ue did 10, for in ten minute* more the water leached her house The only penom who remained in the place were the few American residents, who lived in canoes while the city wa* under water.

Every exertion is being made to start the expedition by the '20:h itist. One vessel is engaged, and the other two will be during the week; stores and equipments are rapidly being prepared, so that whether peace is declared or no', government seems determined to be indemnified for her expenses in the war with Mexico, by the possession of the Californias. If no ar niisuue is cunuiuueu, ine reguneni win i?w uorutinly needed ; but if a cession is made of the California*, they will be of so much the more service in governing the territory. There is no doubt but that they will sail before the 1st September, though no convoy is expected to accompany the regiment, nor is it needed. A band, selected from the different companies, and instructed by a gentleman now attached to the orchestra of Niblo's Garden, wdl be raised, and will add much to the military appearance of the regiment. There can be no doubt but that the whole plan connected with the organization, and destination of this b?dy of troops is a good one; and that the influence of a thousand young, active, enterprising working men, on the shores of the Pacific will redound to the honor of the American people, and add to the glory of the flag. Affairs In California. We find the following in the St. Louis Reveille. We have before published something of the all'air if Captain Fremont; but as California is now the jentre of attraction and destination of one division j jf our army, wo give all we can find that is of any I interest. We do not assent, however, to the jharges made against Mr. Latkin. We believe him to be a very honorablo man. Mr. Semple, now in California, writei an interesting letter, dated April 10th. to the Reporter-, and flint, by way 01 a nut for Mr. Smith, of Illinois. who reported ! against the possibility of a Pacific railroad, we make an sxtract relating to the routs. " First, theD, the road Torn Independence to the leot of tha California moun:ams, acroa* the Rocky and Calumet mountain*, is about ii good a road as that from St. Charles to Columbia, ;Boon'a Lick road) and might, with a little work, be nade a good deal better " " Out of the 2 JM) miles from Independence, there i? iut about 100 of bad road " I tend you a copy of Castro's proclamation, w' ich will ihow you how Capt. Fremont has been treated. Fremont left hit party on the other aide of the mountains, and r?rnaa*il urith a (aw man and callfiil nn thn ( ?f?vprmir for permission to bring them in, which was granted: but when the company arrived, the Captain waa ordered out of the country forthwith. He remained to purchase aupplioit Then the proclamation waa issued, and the Spaniards embodied. Fri-mont wrote to our consul at Monterey f?r advice, and he, (vlr. Larkio) a full blooded Spaniard ia feeling, advised him to leave, which he did ; seeing that be muil fight the whole force of Cali'ornia without the countenance of the consul, whoa* advice was dictated liy his private interests entirely, and not the honor of his countiy There are few Americans here liut who would be gla< to hear of hia removal from office. We m ere all in hopes that Kirmont would remain until ittacked by tho Commandant, which would have been the signal for a united action of the foreigners to form a lew government We were all waiting lor the word to -allv around the " stripes and stars," and, nnder them, leclare California free from the Mexicans, and qualified to live under laws of tiioir own making. It is reported that tho Mormons are coming in large nnmtiers. The Governor has sent a special messenger to Mexico, with a request ami earnest ap|ieal for forces to itop the emigrants irom entering the country. My own ?pinionia, from what I can learn, that Castro will make in effort to cut oft'the foreigners now in the country, in the course of the next month, which will b? alter the departure of the party for the I'nited States, and the one for Oregon. We shall then be weaker than we ever will tie agsin ; but we have no fear of the result even then. Several Americans, who have hecome citizens of California, have been imprisoned,and had their property conSeated, for Jheir refusal to turn out against Fremont, rhe only trouble we have now ie the want of one man who has sufficient influence to unite the loreigners.

Mrs. Bishop, (now Lady Bishop,) whose departure front her husband, the celebrated musical composer, in company with BoqIisu the harpist, excited so much iitteniion some years ago, has returned to England, having acquired a high reputation in Italy and elsewhere a* tL prima donna. The lady disavows any other motive in her proce? dings tt an that of improving her professional income, and thereby benefitting her husband and children.

The thing is now accomplished, and tbo political economist* here hn 'e had the triumph of witnessing their dociriue of the absurdity of all prohibitive and protective tariffs acknowledged by the British Legislature. Unties will henceforward bo levied in England only lor the purposes of revenue. "Protection of home industr/." is a doctrine, which has now tak 'ti its place beside the " Ptolemaic system," and 'he " Vortices" of Descartes. Other countries of L iropc must and will soon follow the steps of England in the great commercial reform, and it may be hoped the United Stales will not lag behind other civilized nations. The system ot inertia and quiescence, which has been the invariable policy of Ix>uis Philippe, will no doubt operate for some time to come, against any relaxation of the prohibitive spirit of the commercial code in France. If the eliitions now about to take place, prove favorable o the present cabinet, the policy of inacron, which is so favored by the opinions of the King, will be persevered in.

Notwithstanding ali tins machinery ol ministerial influence, the will of the Botngeoise sometimes declares itself, and cabinets yield. It is, however, only in extrem < ca>. s.

Prolessional and parliamentary people have gone to the provinces 'o canvass their constituents. Would-be fashionable people have taken refuge for a time in lodging* in the suburbs. The usual influx of cockneys has not yet arrived, owing to the continuance of the London parliamentary 8>'??ion, and to the excitement attending the recent ministerial crisis. The heat of the weather for the last month has been such as the oldest Parisian does not remember an example of. On Sunday the 5 h, the thermometer stooa at 96deg. in the shade. It was the hottest day known in Paris for half a century. This weather has done terrible damage to the theatres, some of which have been almost deserted.
