National feeling.

--The gold medal from the Irish citizens of San Francisco, to be presented to the Sixty-ninth Regiment, of New York, arrived by the steamer Northern Light, on Monday. It is of pure gold, of huge size, three inches in diameter, one-quarter of an inch in thickness, and weighs six ounces. --Each side of it is set round with an enamelled wreath of shamrock. On one side is an inscription which tells its own story. It reads as follows:

‘ "Presented to the Sixty-ninth Regiment, N. Y. S. M., by the Irishmen of San Francisco, Cal., in approval of the manly course pursued by the regiment in refusing to take part in the demonstration in favor of the Prince of Wales, during his visit to New York.

’ ‘"San Francisco, Jan. 1, 1861."’

On the reverse the medal has the flag of the Union, a rising sun, and the motto, ‘"Erin go Bragh."’ It is valued at $300.
