Mr. Kaakua read for a first time his bill amending

was referred to a Select Committee, consisting of
Messrs. Knudsen. Kaauwai, and Kaakua.
Mr. Dowsett aaked to be excused from the Commit
tee lo which was referred the amendments to the
Constitution, on the ground that he was utterly op
posed to altering or tampering with the Constitution ;
and that no man should be employed in any matter,

overruled bis objections.
Mr. Kaakua read for the first time a bill amending
Section ICS of the Civil Code, so as to vest the peo
ple with the power of electing R.md Supervisors for
their respective di tricts. In Committee of the
House, Mr. Webster moved to lay this bill on the table.
Mr. Kaapa thought the people ought to be allowed
to select their own lload Supervisors, so that all road
beneSting the people, might be kept in order; as it
was now. the haole row Is only were repaired.
Mr. Hitchcock thought, that under the present
law. the offices cf Road ur rrvisors were likely to be
filled with competent men; tftt were the old law allow
ing the people to choose lieir own Supervisors in
force again, we might bit farewell to g'od reads;
dunces, bidding the bighes-, would obtain the offices.
Mr. Kaaku replied, th it there was no danger of
the people's selecting incompetent Road Supervisors;
they select el their Representative, and according to
the complex ion of the present ilou.-e, their selection
bail been good.
Mr. Wtdemann thought, that if the people selected
the Supervisors and not the Minister of Interior, in
case the roads vet? neglected, there would be no
bead or department to whom they could appeal. The
bill was tabled by a large B.sjrity. Adjourned.
THirrersTH D.t Mat 15
A petition was presented from Ilioalei. Kauai,
praying that the Legislature pass an act obligiug all
of the ancient line ol Alius" to marry at the age of
20. in order to perpetuate their line. An amusing
colloquy arising among tu members, the petition
was referred lo Mr. Kahowkano. as a committee of
Petitions from Kao. Hawaii, that S500 1 appro
priated for a road from Mamalu to Manuku ; that
prisoners work on the roads in their respective dis
tricts ; that all persons be exempted from the poll
tax, aud that horses, mules. Sic. Le included in the
Petition from Honolulu, against allowing beef and
vegetable to be soi l on SunJ-iy ; that the Prostitu
tion Act be put in force oi. all the Inlands, and be
amended so a to apply to men. as well as women ;
praying a repeal of the law allowing foreigner to
hire Hawaiian women, for, though catieJ aired wo
meo, they were in fact mistresf-es; and asking priv-iletr-
for'thone working out the road tax.
Resolution being called fur, Mr. Harris arose and
said tat in reading ever the reports ot the proceed
ing of the House, both this week and last, in the
Commercial A letriiter, be bad been struck with
the furors ami good ju 'pement with which those
report were made, and thought the House had rea
son to congratulate themselves on the care and ac
curacy of the reporter. I$Jt in this week's report,
be observed that an impression was given, that in the
debate on the contested seat for Koolaoloa. it was the
cpinirn cf the House that the proceedings of the In
spector were fraudulent. That for himself, be would
not like to convict any one of a fraud and publish it
to the country as the opinion of a Legislative assem
bly, without giving the accused an opportunity lo be
heard. Kery person who is spoken harshly of. in a
pbiee where be ha no opportunity to be heard, thinks
such proceedings unj'ist io&ble. And. therefore, he
beggel to ttfer the fullowitg Preamble and Resolu
If Turtat, in the Report of the proceedings of the
House, in the Commercial Advertiser of to day, in
the matter of 'the contested election in Koolauloa, it
is slated that "the inspectors of the election were
freely censa tJ as the. authors of this most fraudu
lent and spurious election" Therefore, be it
Resulted That the decision of the House was
based on the irregularity of proceeding on the part
of the Inspectors of the eU-ction. and that there was
no imputation of fraudulent intent on the part of the
said Inspector, nor did the House attribute more of
the error to the President of the Inspectors than to
any other members of the board.
Mr. Kipi, and others, objected to the Resolution on
the ground that the Houm was not responsible for
the newspaper report of its proceedings : they did
not em piny these reporters ; and further, the opin
ions of individual members expressed in debate, were
not lo be taken as the opinion of the House. The
Mr. Nuuanu read for the fi.st time bis bill amend
ing th! "Act preventing married people from forsak
ing one another." Mr. U k'eiuann moved to reject
the bill, on the ground that persons, other than one
cf the marriel couptc complained of, ought not to
have power to lodge the complaint. The bill was
Mr. Kabananui reao for the first time a bill amend
ing the Adultery law by lengthening the time of im
prisonment at bard labor. Mr. Harris moved to
rjt tue bill on the ground that it was inexpedient
to legislate further oo this subject. Mr. lowsett
wished the bill read a second time, and then moved
to (able it ; contending that it was ageless lo soppres
the offense by making the penalties more stringent ;
and further, that the amendment proposed proceeded
upon wrong principles was impracticable ; that
the law had l-een. at a pi.vious Legislature, altered
f its present form, so th.t :he fine imposed nd the
time of imprisonment nrght correspond. The bill
The Hvose went into Committee on Mr. Knud.-en'
report on the Act psl ty the Noble. To transfer
the ttntie of the Collectors of Custonts. Postmasters,
and Harbor-Master of Lahainaaod Hilo to the Sher
irls of Maui and Hawaii." The report recommended
the tabling of the bill ; that, though it showed a
Ltudable effort at retrenchment, in the opinion of
the Committee, it would t quite impossible at La
haioa (or one person to perform all these duties with
out detriment to the poblie good. Mr. Dowsett
wished the Bill referred lo a Committee of Conference
to make further inquiries. Mr. Widemann moved
that the report be adopted ; arguing that there was
ao Bed of legislation on the subject ; nor would tbe
separation of these office be an obstacle in way of
retrenchment ; a tbe salaries could be reduced, and
if accessary, the offices vj;ed in one person, at tbe
pleasure of the heads or tbe several departments.
Mr. Knudens report, recommending the passage
of the bill including horses and n-ules in personal
property to be taxed ad valorem. ws next discued
in Committee of the Whole. Mr. Webster moved to
lay the bill on the table, on the goun 1 that the net
revenue dented during the past biennial reriod from
tax on horses and mules had been $55,000, and un
der existing circumstances, it would be unwise to de
prive the Treasury of this amount cf income ; and
further, he thought a special tax on the animals
would tend to diminish the Dumber of worthless hor
se which were becoming a nuismce to the country.
Mr. Kuuden argued firmly and fctrer.uously for the
parage of the bi!i. lie thought all property ihou!d
be fl toe 1 on the sime basis fur taxation purposes ;
that it was unreasonable to impose on one man a
small tax for property cf a certain sprcies. ami treble
or quadruple tbe tax on another for a like amount of
another species ; that there were tho-e present who
would force the poor Hwai:ins to kill or sell their hor
ses where they were unable to pay the tix, but these,
same persons argued it very unjust to force Ameri
can slave owners to sell their slaves. Mr. Wideman,
contended that if the special tax on horses, and mule
was repealed. fr the support of the general govern
ment an equivalent nnit be sought by increasing
the tax on something else, which would amount to
merely shifting the burden frm i.tie shoulder to the
other. Show him a reasonable equivalent to the ?27,
0"X per annum horse lax for the public treasury,
and he would favor with all his heart the proposed
measure. Mr. Rhodes was not in favor of imposing
heavy taxes, but thought the existing tax on horces
no heavier than that impr-sel on many other things.
That in all countries certain species of property were
subjected to special taxes, on the ground of their
Wing luxuries ; a horse was a luxury ; no man could
be e-illed poor who owned a horse ; henc the pro
posed bill could not be called a m-aure to relieve
the poor as was argied by some cf the members.
Mr. Harris thought it fully for the House lo play the
part of children crying fur the moon ; for the No
bles, our rulers, would veto the bill ; and further, it
would be unreasonable in the Nee of s? 158.0OO debt
to cut off S55.000 of the biennial revenue. If this
bill passed, the next Legislature would find a defi
cient treasury, aud then would blame the rulers fur
not doing their duty, when they had deprived them of
the means of doing it. Messrs. Baldwin and Kaauwai
also supported the motion, to table the bill. Messrs.
Kaakua, Alapai, Koku and Kahananui arguing to the
contrary. Alter nearly four hours debate, the mo
tion lo table waa lost. 11 to 10. The subject still
pending, the House adjourned.

Mr. Hitchcock, from the Committee on Agriculture,
&C , repotted on certain petitions praying that licenses
for distilleries be granted, that iu the opinion of the
Committee, the time had not arrived at which such
licence coul 1 be a benefit either to the public reve
nue, to the people at large, or to the sugar growers
and speculators; farther, that distilleries should be
licensed only as a last resort from national bark
ruptcy. Mr. Webster agreed with the general tenor of the
report, but wished the last clause struck out, on the
ground that sufficient unto the day is the evil
Mr. Dowsett uit.de exceptions to certain parts of
Mr. Rhodes was opposed to it on the doctrine of ex
pediency and experience ; be did not like the princi
ple expressed in the report, and moved that it be re
ferred to Committee of the House for future action.
Mr. Duwsett introduced a resolution calling for the
Report of the Minis'er of Interior, for the reason that
the time for presenting this Report, presi:riled by
the Constitution, had far passed, and much of the
important business of the House was awaiting it.
Mr. Harris assured the gentleman that the delay
had not I iken place in the Interior Office, but
through pressure of business in the printing office.
Mr. Dowsett. being assured that the Report would
be ready in a d ty or two, with lreir the res .lution.
A communication was received from the Minister
of Finance, enclosing certain Custom House statis
tics, and statini; that, though he had not in his Re
port recommended any material chnnge in the exist
ing tariff, still if the Representatives saw fit to adopt
a new tariff, with a scale of duties high on all arti
cles of luxury consumed by the rich, and low on all
those which are necessar to the comfort of the poor;
legalizing at the same time, the importation, duty
fre of all implements and articles that can promote
agriculture, arts, and sciences, yet still producing a
revenue equal lo that under the present system, he
should tint fail to recommend it to His Mnjesty's favor,
and urge its support on his colleagues. Referred to
the Finince Committee.
The Speaker announced Messrs. Knu'len, Kaau
wai. and Kamalo a Committee to confer with a simi
lar Committee of the Noble on the 15:11 relating o
the Lahaina and Hilo Collectors, and

ing the Board of Health to grai.t Hawaiian Physi
cian licenses to practice. It was ordered to be trans
late.!. The Bi'l to include horse and mule in the per
sonal property tax, was again taken up in Committee
of the Whole.
Mr. Widemann moved to postpone indefinitely.
Air. Knudsen opened the debate with ardor. Our
constituents, said he. were crying for the repeal of the
horse tax; we were here, not to present always our
own opinions and prejudices, but the wishes of the
people; if a member could not conscientiously endorse
and advocate here these wishes, ir was a duty he
owed his constituents to resign bis seat.
Mr. Hitchcock replied, that if the members were
bound to fuldl the wishes of their constituents at all
times, they would be co-npelled to do away with
every tax. ami pas many ridiculous laws; that mem
bers wete Umnd by the wishes of their constituents
only as far as such wish? were in accordance with
reason and the lest interets of the nation.
Mr. Kaauwai thought the poll tax more oppressive
than the horse tax. The people could easily rid
themselves of tbe latter by disposing of their horses:
bit not so in regard to the poll tax. The records of
our courts proved that beer drinking, adultery, and
rapid k'rte riding were tbe three great evil of the
Messrs. Widemann, Rhode and Dowsett eupporlel
the motion to postpone indefinitely with the general
arguments presented yesterday. Tbe native member a
generally arguing to the contrary.
Afler a three hours debate, Mr. Widemann' mo
lion lo postpone indefinitely, was carried 11 to 12.
But a subsequent motion to reconsider being carried,
the bill was brought lefore the House again; and the
subject still pending, the House adjourned.

Mr. Kauuwai read for the first time a Bill trans
ferring the duties of the District Attorneys lo one
person, to le called the Attorney-General of the
Kingdom. Referred to the Judiciary Committee.
Mr. Knulen presented the following resolution :
Kftolced, That in the opinion of this House the law
bidding us to work six d iys in the week and to rest
one day, is a sound and wholesome one. and that the
existing babit of having work done in the departments
of State on the day of rest, tends to retard instead of
forward the public business." Mr. Widemann re
minded the niendier that the Divine Book from which
this law was derived, also permitted a man to lay
bold and draw out his sheep from a pit on the Lord's
Day. Mr. Hitchcock suggested that in the case be
fore us the sheep mwht hive fallen into the pit some
previous day of the week, and been left until Sun
day to be rescued. Mr. Rhodes was in fiver of the
Sabba'b law ; but thought if there had been any
transgression of it in the public offices, the offender
should be taken before the Courts of tbe kingdom and
not before the Legislature Mr. Baldwin thought
that if there wa reason for the charge, it was cer
tainly proper for this hou-e to express its disappro
bation of the practice ; that we were here not merely
to make laws, but to seek in every way the welfare
of the nation, to express opinions, to approve and to
Mr." Iowsett wished to amend the resolution by
aiding that, in the opinion of this House, the law
forbiddit.g murder was also jus;.
Mr. Kiauwai p roposed to ai l the whole Decalogue.
Afrer it rather long and rambling debate, the mem
ber who introduced the resolution, asked leave to
withdraw if, remarking that the subject had been
sufficiently ventilated. The resolution was withdrawn,
and the clerk instructed to make no record of it in
the minute f t the House.
And next a resolution wv introduced ordering tbe
Reporters for newspapers, having seats in the House,
to expunge from their reports of the proceedings the
above resolution and discussion upon it. A debate
followed which would have done c relit to the coun
cil chambers of a despotism, rather than to the Par
liament of a government which, by its constitution
guarantee unabridged liberty of speech and a free
press. The resolution was tabled.
In Committee of the House. Mr. Kaakua's bill, in
cluding bore under personal prot-erty to be taxed
ad valorem, wa again taken up. Mr. Harris moved
to postpone the further consideration of this bill un
,il they bad rreeived the report of the Finance ('cm-
mittee. Motion carried. Thus the subject received
its quietus for a reason a; least.
Air. Hitchcock's report on distilleries, presented
yesterday, was next debated in Committee of the
House. Mr. Moku move! to adopt the report. Mr.
Rhodes a gue! at length for the establishment of
distilleries with proper restrictions to be placed cn
them by government ; that it would encourage do
mestic manufactures and utilize materials now wasted,
as ti root, and particularly molasses, which was now
a drug in the market : that it would tend to retain
in the country the out'.ay now made f r imported,
and as was often the ciw. ppnrious liquors : that to
the best of our knowledge all nations allowed the
distillation of liquors except Hawaii cet, and as this
government allowed the manufacture cf wine, why
not also legalize distilling ; it -vm an inconsistent
policy to allow liquors imported but forbid the dis
tillation of them ; turther, we coul 1 not prevent by
legislation the illicit manufacture of liquors; the
morality of the people must be sought by elevating
them, not by coercive measures. .Mr. Baldwin
thought that lo legalize the manufacture cf liquors
would tend to increase their use as a beverage nmong
both foreigners and native, and that the crime and
poverty it would thus bring on individuals and the
nation would far outweizb every consideration cf its
being a source of revenue to individuals or to the
public treasury. Mr. Kaapa was willing that licen
se for distilling be granted, provided S50.000 was
paid for each licence. The rcrort of the Committee
was adopted by a majority o! about IS to 5. Ad
journed. Sixteenth Day Mat 19.
Petitions were presented from Honolulu; thnt the
horse tax be reduced to 50 cts per head; that boys
going to school be exempt from the poll tax; for priv
ileges for debtors; that stringent laws be placed upon
Government officers; that Government officers be
punished for offenses by hard labor not by fiuos; that

that the luna kulus of Honolulu be paid C per quar

Petitions from Honolulu; to amend the law r Sat
ing to drunkenness, so that the offender be punished
according to the harm he does; and for a repeal of
t':e laws respecting women who become pregnant
by fornication or adultery.
These last two were referred to a select committee,
consisting of Messrs. Dowsett, Kamalo and Papiua.

of all the District Attorneys.

of Interior was receivedX
Mr. Kahookitio read for the first time a bill pro
viding that every patient who was cured in the
Queen's Hospital, pay 81 towards the support of the
Hospital Mr. Rhodes moved to table the bill, on
the ground that this Hospital was a benevolent in
stitution erected for the benefit of the poor; and that
the appropriation bill would undoubtedly provide for
its support. Messrs. Widemann and Knudsen
thought the legi laturc h:id not the power to enat
such a law, as the Hospital, was under the charge, of
an independent corporation with a charter from Gov
ernment. The bill was tabled.
Mr. Kaakua's bill providing for granting Hawaii
an doctors licenses to practice mediciue was read the
second time. Mr. Webster moved that it be laid on
the table. Mr. Nuu.inu was in favor of the bill; he
knew a Hawaiian doctor, who could cure one whose
liver had been destroyed by disease; that such a case
would baHlj the skill of a foreign doctor. Mr. Kaha
nanui thought, that if the members wished Hawaiians
licensed to practice medicine they had better appro
priate S'1000 to have them study medicine in some
Medical College, and earn titles, before being allowed
to practice. Messrs. Knudsen and Kipi also sup
ported the motion to table. Mr. Kaakua arguing to
the contrary. After a short debate, the bill was
tabled 1 4 to 7.
Mr. Moku read a first and second time a bill re
ducing the special tax on horses to 50 cts. per head.
By motion of Mr. Rhodes further consideration o
this bill was postponed until after tbe House received

evidently stronger than the lacts warrant, and

The bark Yankee, which arrived on the ISth,

following interesting summary of telegraphic and
other news, from the papers brought.
Savannah, in.. Occupied.
Sr. Wis, April 27. 1SC2.
Dispatches have been received at Washington an
nouncing that the Federal forces ate now in posses
sion of Savannah, Georgia.
The lust dispatch which came over the wires to
Savannah froui New Orleans says that the enemy
(the Union forces) had appeared before that city,
and that the most intense excitement prevailed. All
the cotton in the city was set on lire and destroyed,
and nearly all the steamboats were burned. When
it was known that the fleet had passed the forts and
was ascending the river, martial law was proclaimed,
aud all business stopped. This occurred on Thurs
day ('Jlth) morning. '

In the House, the Committee on Military Affairs
made a voluminous report. The Committee takes
the ground that the old fortifications are of little use,
being comparatively defenceless against armed ships.
Among the conclusions arrived at by the Committee,
is the necessity for the immediate adoption of ade
quate means to secure the exclusion, from our harbors
of iron sheathed ships, the erection of forts ou Lakes
Ontario aud Krie; constructions for the protection of
the Pacific cast ; a first cla-s military channel com
munication between Missouri and Sun Fiancisco.
aud the construction aud permanent maintenance of
tbe army and navy in sufficient numbers to command
respect ot home and abroad.
At Memphis, the question of burning the city was
being discussed. Cotton, tobacco, sugar and molas
ses, are gathered in immense piles on the Levee,
ready to be fired cn the appearance of tbe Federal
fleet above the city.

A special dispatch to the St. Louis Democrat from ,
Cairo, states that passengers who arrived there that ;
day from Pittsburg Landing, report that an engage- !

latter were driven back towards Corinth. Gen. Hal- !

Cuicjuo, April 7. j
A dispatch from Cairo says that deserters from the ;
rebel army are coming into our lines at Pittsburg j
Landing. They assert that Beauregard has with
drawn a considerable portion of his force from j
Corinth for the defense of Memphis. The report is ;
It is thought by these who ought to know best j
that the majority of the Southern people are ready to :
thriw down their arms and return to the Uniou, if.
defeated at Corinth. The leaders, however, are as j
desperate as ever. j
The five rebels who fired on the steamer Minue-
hah'i. on her recent trip to Tennessee, have leen ;
arrested. They will be shot. j
Is Congress. The Select Cotnmitte to whom was j
referred the question of the loyalty of Senator Stark, ;
of Oregon, reported that he is disloyal to the Gov- j
eminent of the United State, they having found !
that for many months prior to November he was an
ardent advocate of the rebel cause, and that after the .
formation of the rebel Constitution, he openly de- ;
c hired his admiration for it and his sympathy with
the rebel cause. J
A special dispatch states the ol jct of the French !
Minister to Kichmond is to assert the right of French j
merchants to large quantities of tobacco in the bauds
of the rebels. i
Reliable information places Gen. Lee in command
of the rebels at Yorktown as Gen. Johnston did not !
remain. All the rebel stores, ammunition, etc., have .
been removed three miles to the rear of Yorktown. '
The Savannah (Ga.,) Republican of the 12th, t
announces tbe unconditional surrender of Fort Pu-
laski on tbe previous d ty, at 11 P. M. Seven large
breaches were made in the south wall by the Federal j
batteries of Parrott guns at King's Landing. All :
the barbette guns on that side are dismounted; also,
three of the casemate guns. A breach was also made :
in the magazine. The balls used were conical, and j
propelled with such force that they went through the !
walls nearly every fire. j
Col. Olmstead. the rebel commander, signalled on '
the day previous to surrender; that our fire was so
terrible that no one could stand on the ramparts a i
single moment. Over one thousand thells exploded
iu the fort. !
The latest news from Fort tYrieht is unimportant, i
The bombardment continues. The rebels have cut !
the levee on the Arkansas shore, opposite the Fort '
for miles around. The residents are greatly exas- 1
persted at the outrage. J
Correspondents from the battle field of Shelah :
(Pittsburg Landing.) report that the work of bury- j
ing the de d is completed. Returns show over j
C.000 killed, of whom 4,000 were rebels.
The new iron-chid vessel Galena has reached '
Fortress Monroe, and is considered as formidable as .

There was a doubtful report that a steamer built '

The President sent a messaee to the Senate yester- i

Late Richmond papers contain editorials exhibiting i
considerable fear for the safety of that city. They i
intimate that the .Monitor, JSanxantuck nn Galena j
all might easily come up James River, nnd by their

StrspESPFn. The Postmaster of San Francisco has
received orders to suspend the Overland mails for the
present, and to send all mail matter by steamer un
til farther orders.
The Atlanta (Ga.) Confederacy acknowledges that
Northern Alabama and Western Georgia are com
pletely at the mer?y of Gen. Mitchell, and says that
his present position is such that he can easily cut off
reinforcements and menns of retreat. Gen. Kirby
Smith is alleged to be marching towards Huntsville.
The re-opening cf the tobacco trade between Louis
ville and Northern Tennessee is one of the first
fruits of success of the Federal arms on the Cumber
land and Tennessee rivers. No les than forty-four
hogsheads of the staple were received from the Cum-
berland at Louisville in one day last week. j
The entire State of Florida, except Pcnsncol.a, is j
now in possession of the Union forces, nnd the
people of St. Augustine, the largest city in the State, I
had hoisted the American flag, with their own hands, j
and returned to the Federal allegiance. Commodore '
I)jpotit had visited the place, ami was welcomed in
the most friendly manner by the citizens.
The Monitor. During the engagement between
the .Merrimac ami .Monitor, the .Merrimac fired
Armstrong balls, conical, spherical, grape, and even
chain shot. It was a waste of ammunition. In
return the .Monitor put in her 150-pound balls, with
terrible effect : one shot raked the .Merrimac through
the porthole forward to aft ; another plunged through
her iron roof, while the prow of tbe .Merrimac was
broken by concussion with the .Monitor.
WrtorcnT Iron Xlh Steel Shot. In the next fight
between the Merrimac and Monitor, a new kind of i
ball will be used in our ship, which must add greatly
to the destructive power. The Monitor had among
her ammunition, some wrought iron shot. These
lay idle in her action with tho Merrimac, dipt. I
Dahlgren fearing to have them used in battle before
certain trials had been made with them. All doubts
will be settled before the Monitor goes into action
again, and th n we shall discover if the Merrima.j's
sides are invulnerable against this new bullet. Cost
iron shot, fired against a really shot-proof iron side,
aee found lo break sometimes to crumble away. A
hundred pound ball, made from a piece of forged
iron, turned to the proper shape in the ISthe, will
not break, and its impact, is. of course, much more
destructive. Wrought iron shot are expensive, but
if they will sink the enemy's ships, the expense is of
little consequence. Those made for Monitor, cost, we
have heard, 48 each.
Mexico. Later news from Very Cruz has reached
Havana, After an unsatisfactory conference between
the allied commanders, the French General decided
to march his division against the City of Mexico, !
anil had taken upon himself the responsibility.
The English and Spanish plenipotentiaries there
upon decided to withdraw their troops.
It is said that the Juarez Government was ready
to give every satisfaction to the allies, iu the matter
of their claims, but will not listen to tbe idea of a
monarchy, and in case the allies advance to the cap
ital, they would retire from it.

TWO DAYS LATKK.
By the schoonr.r Caroline E. Foole, and the cour
tesy of Capt. Worth and Pilot James, we have receiv
ed San Francisco papers to May Sd, containing two
diy's later news than before published. The follow
ing is the most important news received.
Thk Xt-ws Our dispatches to day, says the .1lta
of .My 2d. report a severe fight between the advance
guards c f the contending hosts near Corinth. Of the
result of the struggle there, no man can doubt. It
will end either in the total destruction or capture of
Beauregard and his army. It is a foregone conclu
sion, even now. The capture of New Orleans opens
up the .1isMssippi in his rear. We expect, in a day
or two, to hear that either Porter or t'armgut are
thundering away at .leinphis on the South. Foote,
with b:s flotilla, will answer his cannonade on the '
North, while the Union army under General Il.ii'eck, j
holds all the outlets cn tbe East. There is no route j
open to Beauregard but that Westward, and where
would that lead him ? j
A victory over Halleck might postpone for a very i
short time his fate, but it would not save him.
Where could he march with his victorious army ? ;
He neither could move up or down the Mississippi,'
for the fleets on both sides bar the way. By the skill i
of our Generals the rebellion has been cut in twain, j
Jeff. Davis is in precisely the same predicament at j
Yorktown or Richmond that Beauregard is in at;
Corinth, and will be at .'.Vmphis if he fills back j
upon that place. It looks now as if the 4th of tbe!
ensuing July would see the end of the rebellion, and j
the restoration of comparative peace to our torn aud i
distracted country. j
The Capture of New Orleans Further!
Southern papers speak in a most dismal strain of
the surrender of New Orleans. The Norfolk Day
book siys it is the most serious reverse cf the war.
The following are the latest dispatches in the
Richmond papers, received by Adjutant General j
Cooper, from Gen. Lovell, dated Camp Moore, April !
27th : Forts Jackson and St. Phillip are still in good ;
condition, and in our hands. The steamers Lou-
isana. and .McRae are safe. The enemy's fleet is
at the city, but they have not forces enough to occu
py. Tbe inhabitants are staunchly loyal.
Mobile, April 2Sth.
The forts on Lake Pontchartrain were all evacuat
ed on the 25th. We have sustained considerable losa
in supplies, and by the dismounting, but net by the
destroying of gnus At Fort Pike all the buildings
are burned, including the telegraph office. All the
gunbonts on the lake have been burned by our peo
ple. The Mobile boat If hitman Brown and several
others are running troops, stores, and ordnance to
Manchac, after which we fear they will be burned.
Tbe Yankee fleet was again returning to Ship Island.
A dispatch from Mobile, the 27th, gives the follow
ing Rebel statement : The Yankee commodore Farra
gut promised the Mayor of New Orleans, who visited
his fleet by a fl'ig of truce, to make a renewed demand
for the surrender of the city, but has not done so up
to five o'clock. In conference with one of the Federal
officers, after the correspondence be-.ween the Mayor
and Commodore Farragut, an officer left, declaring
he would shoot down the flag on the City Hall if it
was not hauled down. He actually brought his ship
within range, but has not fired thus far. It is re
ported that the French and English men-of-war are
below and will enter their rrotest against shelling
the city. It is believed the Yankee vessels are short
of piovisions aud ammunition. The city is remark
ably orderly, but the excitement is exceedingly
intense and feelings of bumilatiou deep.
The capture of New Orleans was generally known
in the Rebel camps on the 27th.
Fortress Monroe, April 30th.
The Richmond Dispatch, yesterd :y, says, that
when the enemy's (Federal) fleet arrived opposite
New Orleuns and demanded its surrender. General
Lovell refused and fell back to Camp Moore ; after
destroying all the cotton and stores. The Iron-clad
vessel Mississippi was burnt tj prevent her falling
into the hanls of the Federals.
The following has been received through Rebel
sources. A special dispatch to the Delta of the 21st,
from Fort Jackson the 20th, says the enemy's fire
has much slackened. They have fired to this time
37.000 pounds of powder and over 1,000 tons of iron.
This bombardment is tin precede n ted in modern war
fare. Our loss, (Rebel.) so far as heard from, is five
killed and ten wounded. The mortar vessels 8 re
behind the point of woods, out of sight. We sunk
two yesterday, and disabled one steamer.
Cairo, May 1st.
The fall of New Orleans after a vigorous resistance
from the forts, in which many were killed on both
sides, is placed beyond a doubt. Nothing but the
exertions of the Union men prevented the burning of
In Memphis the greatest consternation prevails,
and Secessionists are secreting their goods, while
those of Union proclivities do not conceal their exul
tation. The town would have been burned, had it
not been for the decided opposition of the property
It is currently stated r Memphis that Beauregard's
force does not exceed 80,000 men at Corinth, and
there is no hope of his successfully resisting Gen.
Halleck. who it is believed, has an army of 200,000
troops, the best iu the North. As our informant left
Memphis, it was reported that a gunboat was in S'ght,
bouud up the river, to join Ilollins fleet, opposite
A flairs at Yorktown.
Fortress Monroe, April 29th.
Our earthworks before Yorktown begin to present
a very formidable appearance. All yesterday and
last night the enemy kept up a brisk fire, trying to
draw us out. The works were not interfered with.
Yesterday General Haycock, with a portion of bis
Brigade, went to drive the Rebels from the woods
near our works. Our troops delivered t well-directed
fire, causing t! e Rebels to retreat, leaving their dead
IIarrisbi'kg, Va., April 23th.
Jackson has removed his wagon train six miles
since yesterday, indicating his intention to retire still
further. A t-quadrou cf cavalry was Ihe only Rebel
force discovered to day on the right side of the She
nandoah river. They were at -UcGougheystown.
It has been reported that Staunton is occupied by
Gen. Vilroy, but we have no news confirming it.
The river is still too high to attempt crossing with
safety. A dense smoke was seen in that direction
to-day cause unknown.
The Richmond Kxamintr of the 27th says, in
effect, that the destiny of the Confederacy is tremb
ling on the result at Yorktown. If successful there,
it will give them the Rebels six months in which
to carry out the provisions of the Conscription Act
arming aud equipping a large army, and launching
a fleet of Merriruacs." If unsuccessful, Virginia

TIIK HAWAII X STKAM AXD (;KEU
AL INTKK'ISLA.M) NAVIGATION
IT IS PROPOSED TO FORM A XEW
Coiiijiaiiy. under the atmve title, on the following basis :
1st. Tt.e Coinaiiy to consist principally of all the Surar
Companies, Planters, Merchants and Freighters on the difo-rent
Islands. No one of which to hold a prejiondenitinir interest in
the Company, or if they do. to have only the same vote as
Shareholders with less interest.
il. It is proposed to purchase the steamer ,-KiIauea as
well as the Charter privileges, liuilil.ns, &-c. of the Hawaiian
Steiun Navigation Ccmp:iny, at a fair valuation.
3.1. To apply to the L-j,is Uture now in session, for a new
Charter, exteiiuinir the time of the present one to tilteen yi-ars ;
and to tcrnnt the new Company a subsidy forcarryinp ihe mails,
and the privilege of having steamers of a size to suit the trade,
and to le allowed also to own ami run schooners if tln'y choi.se;
but the schooners to have no sjiecial privileges. The Company
to forfait all their privileges should they fail for twelve months
to run a steamer of not less than ISO tons.
4th To run the Kilauea " in tho meantime, as long as he
pays her expenses, or until she can be sold, when a suitable toat
is to be purchased or ordered, such as the Company may decide
5th. To purchase clipper Schooners, or admit them into the
Company at a valuation. The Comaiiy to run them until they
find by experience, whether it will be to their interest to replace
them with, or convert them into steam vessels.
It will be seen that on this principle, the Planters and the
Public, as well as the new Company, place themsi Ives in an
absolutely safe position, for they will hare it in their power to
command the freights, and to run steamers or sailing vessels, or
both, whichever proves to be most profitable, and most to the
general interest, whilst the planters will nevi-r be left without
vessels to bring their produce to market. The object of divid
ing up the shares is, tiesides the evident one of interesting the
whole community, that the bouts can be run without insurance,
as the interest that each person holds being small, and a!so
each shareholder owning a share in a number of comparatively
small vessels, one insures the other; whilst should their large
steamer tie lost, the schooners or steam-schooners would do a
good business, and pay interest on her cost and their own. until
a new vessel could lie obtained.
With regard to the Charter to be applied for, no delay need
take place in applying for shares in the new Company on that
account, as ui.til it is obtained the purchase will not go into .
effect unless by consent of the Shareholder.
No cash advances will be required by Shareholders, as the
approved notes ef any Planter, Merchant, or c. tin n will be !
taken for the property to be purchased.
No one applying for shares will lie bound to take them, until
he approves of the steps taken, and resolutions passed at the
first meeting of the sutiscriliers. tbe date of which will be duly
advertised ; and if he does not approve of same, he can with
draw his application.
Applications for shares will le received by the undersigned
In the form hereto annexed. It is proposed that no one firm or
individual be allowed to take more than fAMO interest in the
new Company, or if they do, that they will have the ale nuin
b.T of ve-s a a Shareholder, holding $:1(K0 stuck.
Ail applications for shares will lie granted iu the order they
are received by the undersigned.

We, the undersigned, have, at your request, examined the
Boiler on 'xiard the steamer Kilai ka, ami now make the fol
lowing remrt :
In the first place, we-conider it to he a sfouf and strong
well-built Boiler. In fact, owing to the great quantity of stays
and brakes inside, lo give it additional strength, has caused, in
our opinion, unequal exp-msii-n and contraction, which has
caused the Plate ot the hire Ilex to crart, and the necessity
of putting on several patchi-s, which make it as good and strong
if not strongfr than ever. Many may suppose lhat the cause of
patching arose from thin places, burnt trim 'in account ot tne
large quantities or scale and sediment in the Boiler, but such is
not the case. As the Boiler now is clean an I clear of all scale
and se liment as it is possible fir it to be, and we have no hesi
tation in giving our opinion that, with the same good care it has
hitherto received, il will last good and strong several years
