[From the Pacific New*, of .Tunc 17.] Since the Hailiug ot the Oregon, on the first instant, little;had transpired in California of absorbing interest. until the Inavy calamity which befel our city yesterday Within a tew months paat, San t'raneiseo Las bteu visited with three large (ires The twe first were met with undroopiog energy, and a few days was only needed to elapse, until the bum of business comnil need with renewed enterprise. But the present disaster is a Boost stunning blow?people pause in their operations until they thoroughly consider what is best to be done. It visited a quarter of the city which ha? been the main depot of commerce, and swept away far more property than on former occasions; large proportion of which is on consignment, the loss of which falls heavily upon distant shippers. We are bound to create an efficient tire department and also to have established a certain limit that muit be rebuilt id a safe and proper maimer. Our citizens ar? no* Caking the matter into ooasideratlen, and in a lew days such ordinances will be enacted a? may guarantee greater safety in future. We refer to other columns of this sheet for full particulars. Because of great destruction at the Are, all kinds of building materials have advanced in piice. and tor some time to come, we think will he held above their late ruling rates. The foreign miners are paying their tax without opposition, and all disturbance has ceased from that The latest mining intelligence will be found in other columns. In the Upper Sacramento there Is much excitement about land titles between those who wish to settle upon a part of those Immense claims of Capt. Sutter, and ethers who hare purchased his right to many of the best localities, and hold them for speculation. Since our la*t, the discovery of large gold deposit! in Oregon has awakened considerable attention here. Tt accounts are very authentic, and we think may pit ably have an Influence to direct part of the cur at of emlgratiou which Is now on the plains. Pacific City, near the mouth of the Columbia, Is drawing very considerable attention among business men. yuite a number of buildings have already been erected there lately, and several large improvement* are in contemplation. An able firm of dan Kranei-tco is about to ply a steamboat between Pacific City and the upper waters of the Columbia. from the liritish colonies we have had several arrivals lately, bringing srowd* of passengers. tiuite a trade has sprung up with that part of the world, and most of their product* are to be found on sale in thia market. From China wo have a late arrival, giving notice of the death of the emperor. We are in receipt of late dates from the Sandwich Islands, but there is no news of interest. Still Another Conflagration?O Three Hundred Houses Burnt?Nearly Five Millions of Property Destroyed. [Fron the San Francisco Herald, June 18 ] We have scarcely courage or spirit te attempt oalmiy to record this last and most terrible disaster to our apparently doomed city. We know not how to sufficiently colleet our thoughts or our energies under this stunning blow In little more thsn three hours, at l?art two-thirds of the wealthiast ttntflnn tka ,.W? k..u The property of the heaviest honwn In town?the hard turning* of year* of successful industry?have be< n swept away Gloom and desolation ha< settled on many a (tout heart. Many a man in easy circumstances has been brought to tbe verge of ruin. The commercial greatness of thlt fair city has received a shock from which It will not recover for many a m uith to come. It in the will of 0<>d?we bow with humility to tbie nwful dispensation of aa all-wise Provldenee The lire originated in a buck building attached to the Sacramcnto llouse. between Sacramento and Clay streets. It commenced a little belore X o'clock. A. M . and r* the wind h'.gh at the t ime. it communicated quickly with tiie adjoining buildings When wc arrived at the scene ot conflagration, the Haines Were roaring In on immense volume from the direction of Sacrameuto street to the corner of Montgomery aud Clay. The Mayor and all the principal oitisens were promptly on the ground, but the supply of water being limited, no effort was of any avail to arrust its progress short of Clay street. Here a dtderiniaed staud was made, but notwithstanding tho uiort active and east-lets exertions, thi flame', spread to the north side, and extended as far as Mr. Naglee'i unfinished building on Montgomery street. The banking huuse of Mr. J as King, of William street, wu torn down, and this enabled tho citixen* to arrest the progrets of the Are at this point. Mr Naglee'f Iom was comparatively trifling Meantime the wind carried the flames down, with resUtlesa fury, to the water's edge, sweeping In Its progress the whole of the blocks from Clay street on the north, to the north side of California street, Inclusive, and from Kearney street, with but the e iception of few houses, to the water. It Is owing to the noble and manly riertlon* of Gregory Yale. Esq . assisted by several cltitens, that the shipping in tbe harbor was saved from dsstructlon Mr. Yale was deputed by the Mayor to proceed to this point and to use all means necessary to arrest the progress of the conflagration Ue remained until he was pressed so hard by the fUme*. that he was obliged to escape in a boat. It would be impossible, so extended was the aoene of action, to particularise half of those gentleman who 1 exerted themselves lo day the conflagration. Mr. Kohler. Mr. Ilartol. Mr. l?rod?rlek, Mr Melggs. and others, acted as they always act on such occasions, 1 with cool courage and determination. If any man. more particularly than all others de] serves the thsnk* of the community, it Is Col. Jack Ilay?. We know no terms of commendation sufficiently ftrorg to express our admiration of tha i conduct of this gallant officer. But for hia noble exeitiens the whole of the block, hounded by the north side of Clay atreet. and from Montgomery street ta the water, would have been iaorlficed.? He fnrmtd a line from the Artesian well in tha i building known as the Pacific Batht, In Montgomery street to Clay street, and by the moat untiring effort* kept'the fire at bay Several tiroes he was obliged to descend from the ladder, reeling under the snorching heat, lint, even after the fire had been partially subdued. he remained on guard till 4 o'clock In the af ternoon The banking hou*a of Biirc ri? 1 Co.

THE KOREIHN MINERS. [From the Faci&c News. June 8.] The resistance to the monthly tax. of which sush alarming rumor* have been diligently circulated, ha ended in smoke, or rather iu a quiet submission to th law. 1 ndewd,there can be no doubt t bat had t hese men been left to make their own choice, unaided by the reprusentatii i>s and misrepresentation* of those who had personal views to subserve, and private gains to pocket, there would have been no tumult, no attempt* at re- ( li/U*?f, or threats even, although they might have regarded the law as bearing onerously upon their labor . This m itic Ttew taken by person* just from the neighborhood ot Sonera, who have had ainpla opportunity to make themselves thoroughly acquainted with the state of feeling existing there on this subject. l'he Auietioaii miners arc willing anj ready to sustain the officer* of the law in the execution ol their duties, recognizing the equal right with themselves, to labor when and where he pleases. when backed by a receipt of the payment of hit tax. From the same source we learn that the foreign population is not leaving, in any considerable number. An opportunity does not offer every day to make money. lu defiance of a high tax, aud they are not quite ready to sacrifice their interests to nv?id its p^ymunt. With this fortunate ending ot the apprehended JiJBeulties the necessity of an extra session of the Legislature it so materially le??< ned. that, iu all probability, it will not be seriously urged.
