There are twenty families from the United
Slates residing in Honolulu, including those
ofthv? American Protestant Mission, in all,
seventy si individuals, and five from Eng
land, seventeen individual. The whole for
iiL'ii population will probably amount to six
hundred; but the census now being taken
will civc the number of residents and native
population accurately and when completed
llirmigliont the islands will be published.
Statistics of the American Mission cs
tulilished at Honolulu, under the direction
of t lie A. B. C. F. M., furnished by Mr.
Levi Chamberlain, one of the secular
agents of the mission.

The value of the missionary buildings
would be estimated higher, were they
held by a different tenure. The grant of
l;t!id on which these houses stand, were
made to the missionaries as ip1iioms
teachers, whose object was to benefit the
people and nation; .and they would not
feel at liberty to transfer the interest they
have in these premises to others, without
serial permission from government.

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT KOLOA, KAUAI. "
We regret to learn that on the 26th ultimo,
the cook house belonging to Capt. John
Stetson, took fire through a defective stove
pipe, and immediately communicated the
tlamcs to his dwelling houses and adjoining
buildings, which to the number of seven
were, entirely consumed. They consisted
of a store house, carpenter's shop, two dwel
ling houses, and out buildings and stable, all
of thatch, mid built very close together. TOT-IT Qp OEiFC5IlUXlU,.

whole loss cannot be estimated at less than
two thousand dollars.
The repairs of the tender Flying Fish are
now completed, and a beautiful little crafi
she is. She was formerly a New York nilot
boat, and is of ninety tons measurement.
She has all the case and grace of the swal
low, as she lies upon the water, and we doubt
not but that like that bird she lightly skims,
rather than ploughs the ocean. Her officers
call her a safe and delightful sea boat, and a
last sailer, and while at Sydney she attracted
much-curiosity. Strangers, and even the fair
sex came from far and near to sec the tiny
cratt that bad braved the dangers of the
icy ocean every body being astonish
ed that so small and frail a vessel should
have ventured into the Polar Seas. She had
nevertheless, and reached upwards of seventy
degrees south latitude; encountering some
severe gales, and being at one time so com
pletely closed in by ice, that her deliverance
was almost miraculous. Her consort, the
Sea (Hull, was thirty tons larger, of the same
class, and after parting company with the
Hying J ish in a galeofl the Horn last year,
is supposed to have tripped her tore mast,
ripped open her deck, and foundered. In
dependently of the lives lost, the loss of her
services has been quite a drawback to the
Expedition, at least to the extent of surveys,
as these small , vessels arc by far the best
adapted to cruise among the Southern Archi
pelagoes. Lieut. Craven, who remained in
Valparaiso, to take charge of her in case of
her arrival, afterwards spent two months in
the United States Schooner Boxer in exam
ining all the harbors, capes, islands, and the
coast generally of Tierra Del Fuego, in
hopes that some trace of her could be found,
but upon his arrival in Rio Janeiro, reported
that none were seen. Passed Midshipman
Reid and Bacon, with thirteen men, were
lost in her.1
Brig Harlequin, Capt. Cheine, brings
intelligence from China, via. Kamschatka,
to the middle of June. At that date the
blockade had not taken place, although
three English sloops of war were olf the
coast. The trade with the Americans
was still comtimicd, but the Chinese were
determined not to yield to the demands of
the English, and the Emperor had sent
an embassy to tho Emperor of Russia, to
apply for assistance against the English.
An anomalous incident in their annals
and one which will be quite likely to sub
vert their non-intercourse policy, should
the Autocrat comply with his wishes.
The Japanese who took passage in the
Harlequin, remained at Kamschatka, un
der the protection of the governor, wait
ing an opportunity to return to their own
country. Capt. Dominis left Kamschat
ka in the Brig Joseph Pcabody ten days
before the Harlequin arrived, for this
place, via. Norfolk Sound and Mazatlan.
Letters from Hawaii statu that the vol
cano of late has presented u very brilliant
appearance at night, at the distance of
sixty miles. The day before tho Barque
Eagle left Hilo, it was reported that a
fresh eruption had commenced, tliO light
being seen at that place.
