Fast day in California.

--The proclamation of the President, setting apart the 4th of January for a day of humiliation, fasting and prayer, only reached San Francisco for publication on the day named; consequently, but little preparation was made for its observance. The congregation of Cavalry Church assembled in the evening and listened to addresses from the Rev. Drs. Colt, Buell and Williams. The Custom-House, Post-Office, and other public buildings were closed, and the Courts refrained from business.
