Baker is engrossing general attention at San Francisco to-day. --The volunteer force and State military, and civic organizations, with the citizens generally, participated, making the largest procession ever witnessed here. About $20,000 have been subscribed for the relief of the sufferers by the Sacramento flood. The water has been from two to twelve feet deep in almost every house in that city.

Shields has accepted the appointment of Brigadier General, and is on his way to Washington in the steamer Golden Age.--The steamer has $460,000 in treasure for New York.
