The U. S. Mrig I'orpoise, Capt. 1'inggold,
arrived on Wednesday, after a short passage
of 'J7 days from the Samoa Islands Offi
cers and crew all well. A lUt of officers
will be found in our last number. All
the vessels of the Exploring Squudronarc
now in port, and from what we hear, will
make a long stay. The Porpoise after part
ing with her consorts, returned to one of the
Fiji islands to protect or take away as the
occasion might roquirc, a family of Wesley
an missionaries settled there, whoso lives
were supposed to be endangered by the sav
ages, lint they preferred remaining, having
been promised protection by the old king.
From thence, the brig went to the Naviga
tor's Islands, and theie learned the particu
lars of the death of Capt. Croker, of the
Favorite, which were somewhat different from
the account given in a previous number. It
seems that Capt. Croker, having failed to
ted ignorance, which discourses pompous
ly, and in the attempt to cloak its lack
of knowledge but betrays it the more for
cibly, some one attached it to his name,
for fear of being considered something
less, and others followed suite from mere

presented, within a specified time. The na
tives refusing to do so, ho landed with one
hundred men and two small guns, and march
ed to assault their fort, which was strongly
fortified after the native mariner. After bat
tering down one of the gates, be immediate
ly, inarched forward to take the place by as
sault, leading the column himself but fell,
pierced it is said with eighteen balls three
ot his men were also killed, seventeen dan
gerously wounded, and not one of the olfi
ccrs escaped unhurt. The party were obli
ged to retreat leaving their guns behind them.
The first Lieutenant assumed command of
of the vessel, and at the request of the Lng
lish missionaries stationed there, took them
on board aiid conveyed them to Vavau,
where they were to remain until affairs bc-
ome more settled.
To-day, a native in ascending the pali,
from Koolau, having reached the highest
point, where the road becomes abrupt, sat
himself down upon a projecting rock, in a
most careless manner, and commenced
smoking. Scarcely had be placed the pipo
to his mouth, when one of those furious
gusts, which arc so common at this place,
struck him, and losing his balance his pipe
was precipitated, down the declivity, and
there is scarce room to doubt but that its
contents were entirely spilled before it reach
ed the bottom.
llajpy indeed will you be should you
improve the present few days by repentance,
that your heinous sins may be
through Jesus Christ.

Esqr. This is a little word, but it fol
lows a great many proper names in Hon
olulu. So ridiculously prevalent has be
come the fashion here of 'squiring' people,
that it is a great matter of astonishment
to strangers, how so small a place can con
tain so many "honorable men." They,
simple souls, imagine that it is some mark
of distinction to separate its enviable pos
sessor from the vulgar herd, and are at
first inclined to do it reverence, and are
often sadly puzzled when thev hear it ap
plied indiscriminately to "blue spirits,
white and grey." But no such thing, any
