copies to sundry gentlemen in this city. Wo
heticvo that thcro is nothing of importance to

virtues of tho said Mr. Count Moreno, who by
tho byo still declines to communicate with
tho Hawaiian Consols, tnkitiK refuse under
tho address " I'osto Kcstnnlo Rome," which is
not considered by tlioso gentlemen a satis
factory address for official correspondence.

"II. M. S. liiicehml-," says tho Sydney
Morning llemltl, " with their Knyal High
nesses tho sons of tho Prince of Wales on
boaid, arrived at King fleoigi-'s Sound on
Max- 10th, and reports that the Flying Squad
ron, to which tho liucthnntt is attached,
quitted the Capo of Good Hope on tho Dili
April. Sho hnd fair we.ither until tho 11th
instant, when tho wind freshened. On tho
mining of tho 12lh a sea sliuck tho ship,
carrying away tho poit life-cutter. At mid
day a heavy sea broke aboard tho ship, which
bioachcd to, and would not pay off. It was
then discovered that tho steoiing go.ir was
disabled. Steam was therefore got up, and a
course shaped for Albany. Tho accident hap
pened in latitude. 10 S, and longitude 120 s
K. Temporary steering gear was made with
sp.iio sp.ii'H. Tho rudder will bo examined
to-day and tho necessary repaiis effected.
The squad i on was last seen by tho Ihnchmite
on tho evening of tho I lth instant, and will
rendezvous ten miles south of Cape Otway on
tho lUth May. Tho health of the Piinces is
excellent. Captain Lord Charles Scott, of
11. M. S. JJiicjtiinlf, thinks ho can effect the
-necessary repaiis in a lew days with assis
tance from shore. Tho rudder must bo un
shipped and hoisted on boaid. The ship is
safe, but it was too boistctnus last night to do
anything. Tho Princes aro well, and Mr.
Loftic, Government resident at Albany, enter
Tin: following is a- cerhnlim copy of the
clause in tho will of tho lato Tliomns C.trlyle,
bequeathing to Harvard College, Cambridge,
Massachusetts, tho books ho used in writing
tho lives of Oliver Cromwell and Frcdeiick
tho Great: " Having with good reason, ever
since my liisl appearance in liteiatuie, a
vaiiely of kind feelings, obligations, and re
gards to Now England, and indeed long befote
that n hc.uty good will, real and steady,
which still continues, to America at largo, nud
tecognizing with gratitude how much of
friendliness, of actually crcdiblo human love
I have had fioni that country, mid what im
mensities of wurth and capability I believe
and partly know to be lodged, especially in
tho silent classes there, I havo now, after duo
consultation as to tho leasibililies, tho oxcilj
abilities of it, decided to fulfill u fond notion
thut has been hoveling in my mind theso
many years; and I do, therefore, hureby be
queath tho books (whatever of them I could
not borrow, but hud to buy and gather: that
is, in general, whatever of them aro still hero)
which I used in wiitiug on Cromwell and
Frederick, and which shall bo accurately
searched fur. and parted from my other books,
to tho President and Fellows ol Harvard Col
lege, city of Cambridge, Statu of Massachu
setts, na a poor testimony of my respect for
that alma muter of to many of my trans-Atlati-lic
fiiends, and a token of tho feelings above
indicated towards tho great country of which
Harvard is tho chiof school in which hciiso I
hnvo roason to bo confident thut tho Harvard
authorities will please to accept this, my
little bequest, and deal with it, and ordor and
use il, an to their own good judgment and
kind fidelity shall hcoiii fittest. A certain
symbolical vuluo tho bequest may have, but
of intiiusio value us a collection of old books
it can pretend to very little. '
Thk sixth and last performance of Pinaloro
was given boforo a crowded tiouio on Satur
day last, and was most enthusiastically
received. The net receipts were to bo given
to;tbo funds of Mechanic Company No, 2, to
help them over the loss sustained by the
destr uction of property canted by tho fall of
Father Larkin's building at St. Louis College.
A number of the firemen uiurchcd to tho
theatre in procession bearing lighted torches,
and u goodly sprinkling of red ehirti added to
tho brilliant appearance of the houtc. When
tho curtain roso a loud burst of applnuso
greeted tho scone. It was evident that tho
wholo company wiih still bent on improve
ment; tho ciow wore hotter distiihnted over
tho stage, and their occupations mora varied
and characteristic. Tho entrance of Itutlor
ciqi was tho signal for hourly applause, and
wo need not say that tho part was sung and
acted to perfection by Mrs. Hnrudcu. The
dialogues and songs which follow woro ex
cellently icndored, Ralph's madrigal, " Tho
Nightingale," particularly so, while tho Hout
swaiu and l)ick Doadcyo played their parts
perfectly. Tho appcarauconl tho "woll-bicd
Captain of tho Pinaforo" was loudly greeted,
and tho cut unco of Joscphino called forth a
long continued shout ol welcome. When the
applnuso of tho audience permitted .Tosophiuu
snug lior doleful ditty in tier best style, and
was rewarded by hoatty clnppiug and cries of
encoro. .Miss Ijiico, liowovor, prelerrcd to go
straight on, probably feeling that her powois
would bo put to a tolerably sevcro strain
hefoio tho evening was ovur. Tho invisible
chorus, tho entry of Sir Joseph's lelatives
"gaily tripping, lightly skipping," and last
hut not least, tho ui rival of tho pompous
K.O.IS. himself and his blooming Cousin Hobo
was ngaiu tho signal for loud and icpeatcd
chceis. Sir Joseph did his part bolter than
over, and Cousin Ilcbo led up to tho choiiises
witli admiralilo animation and dash, and tho
Sisters, Cousins and Aunts replied in liko
manner. At tho exit of tho crew, thoy went
off tho quarter deck in true (stage) nautical
"And then they hitched their trowscrs up.
Alii, I'm toUl, their use;
ItK erjr mlit that sailor men
.Should near those things so looo I"
Tho duct between Joscphino and Ralph was
excellent, and tho choius, " This very night,"
given wi(h equal spiiit mid accuracy. At tho
close of tho flint act tho curtain was again
raised in rcspouxo to the calls of tho audience,
disclosing tho whole company in tho "cus
tomary attitude." In tho opening of tho
second act, tho Captain's guitar song was
loudly oncnicd. and .Mr. Swan.y good iintltrcd
ly repeated it. The elopement scene was ex
cellent thioughniit, ami tho dauco of Jose
phine, Sir Joseph, and tho Captain highly
comical. Tho Captain's haidly-cver-used
"big, big D," when it did come, was very
shocking to relatives and seamen alike, and
keenly resented by ihom all, and promptly
repressed by Sir Joseph. " Farewell my
own by Mr. llarnilen, JIibs Luco and chorus,
is pet Imps tho gem of tho piece, and was
beautifully sung. Buttercup's "mixing up"
ot thusu babies and their being fintbuitli un

EniToa HiTuuniY Pbkss: We have been unable
to see the source of the flow on Mnunn Loa dnriufi
tho past Week and havo ouly seen the end of the
flows very dimly, as it has been cloudy every uiRbt.
It is mulling very Blow progress. A road baa been
made to tho flow nearest Hilo wbicb enable those
who go to reach that flow a littie sooner than the
one that most people havo visited. The Kentlemen
who went to visit tho crater of Mokuaweoweo
returned last Thursday after an absence of ten
days and report that tueaoareu of the flow, which
tie visited after welus the summit crater, is much
leas active than tt was when be saw it in January
last. Daring the progress of the flow we have
thought several times that tho Area were dying
out. when all at oncu it would start out afresh,
making us think it might coutiune for a longtime.
