As before, all the world is affected, the of the earth will give their ready sympanthy and hasten material aid to the scene. May San Francisco, for half a century the gem of the Pacific coast, rise triumphant from the crushing blow'and regain her proud position amongst foremost ports of the world and most famed cities of America. ?idd33d43dd:d3333333$3K The lateU news obtainable was re-1 supposed points of .safety, or are m m f 4 j? fl troyed and 1G0 of the inmates killed. 1 Light square miles of the city of San i l ancisco has been burntd.
