Mr. Kaaku read the Crt time a bill allowing
road superviooni to commute the road labor in
task work. This bill is similar to Mr. Kahoo
kaumaha's bill which was rejected cn the 19th
day of the sewion. Ordered for to-n.orrow.
Mr. Moku read the second time a bill to reduce
the tax on stallions to 5 per head. By motion
of Mr. D-iwoeU the bil! was tabled.
Mr. Knud:;n of the Committee on Elections,
in the matter of the petition againat the validity
of the election of Meters. D. 1. Baldwin and
J. I). Kahookano, members from Lahaina, re-
fxtrted, that, having examined into the case as
ally as poseiole, and heard and taken down the
testimony of no lean than 17 witnecaes, the Com
mittee were of the unanimous opinion that there
was n- proof of bribery. The committee therefore
recommend! that the petition be tabled. The
report was adopted.
The Speaker announced a menage from the
Nobles, stating thut they had lowed the bill
reducing the number to be summoned on jury
paneLt, and also tho bill admitting pig and plate
iron duty free ; but had tabled the bill granting
Mr. Baldwin gave notice that he was about to
introduce a bill repealing the Prostitution Act ;
also a iSabhath act to prevent the vending of beef
and vegetables or. that day.
Mr. Khod'.ti read for the first time a bill to
promote inter-inland communication. The bill
ask for the Hawaiian Steam Navigation Co., the
exclusive privilege of running a steamer or steam
er between th inlands for 12 years to come, for
fre-i um of water from government tanks, for free
wharfage and coal depot ; that no prt charges,
pay for coasting license, or taxes to imposed on
said cow puny lor their steamers ; that the coal
and other materials for the productive if steam
and the machinery for the steamers be admitted
duty free ; the company to carry the mails and
receive for this sen ice 250 ier month for each
steamer so employed, provided that not more
than three steamers "e so paid for ; and in order
i secure tne loregoing privneg.-s, toe company
to have a substantial frtcamcr on the route within
a specified time. Mr. Dowsett moved to reject
th? bill on the ground that he was utterly
opposed to anr company's monoplizing the in
ter-island communication to the injury of the
coasting venne's. some of which were a more
permanent benefit to the public and were suetain-
ed at great expense to their owners. Mr. Rhodes
thought steamers a benefit to all countries, and
that every government should faciliate those
methods of navigation which best favored the
exportation of their products; that this bill
would not drive off the sailing vessels but would,
according to the past two years experience, tend
t Awake a healthy species of competition, which
would reduce the rates of passage and freight.
Mr. Webster moved that the bill he referred to
a select committee ; and argued against the state
ment that it would injure the coasting schooners;
that he did not see that this would lie an injury
to the country if the work was done better and
more cheaply, and that would he nec?ssary before
the schooners would be injured : that the British
Government found it for their interest to spend
millions in subsidizing steam line all over the
world ; sailing vessels were run off these lines, but
he had never heard this urged as a reason against
subsidizing; and there was no question but that
commerce flourished under the system ; further,
it was clear, that without granting some privi
leges to our Steam Co. here, we would lose the
steamer ; and he would asL the members whether
they were ready to revert to sailing vetwels for
inter-bland traffic; that we hadju.t heard that a
line of steamers touching here would soon be laid
on between San Francisco and China under sub
sidy from the American Government, and this
was another reason why we should do everything
in our power to promote inter inland steamers to
faciliate the sending forward many of our pro
duct for which there was at present no market.
Mr. Downett withdrawing his motion, the bill
was referred to a select committee consisting of
Messrs. Rhodes, Harris, Kipi, Kamalo, and
Mr. Widemann's bill, providing that liquors
lie not consumed on he premises of wlmkvale
venders, and that wholesale vending of liquors
shall consist of selling in quantities not less
than one gallon or one dozen quart bottles, was
read the second time. Mr. Baldwin asked the
reasons for thus reducing the limit of the quantity
in wholesale vending. Mr. WiJemann stated
that it was for the sake of public convenience ;
and that it was not different from the practical
working of the existing law. After a short de
bate the bill parsed.
Mr. Dowsett ' bill relating to women who
become pregnant by illicit intercourse or adulte
ry, passed its second reading with but little
TwESTY-f OVETH PaT Mat 20.
G. B. Ukek-fand A. 31. Kahalewai both ap
peared this morning, claiming the vacant seat for
Koolauloa. and both presented certificates of
election, that of the former signed by Judge
M .Et; that of the latter, prefaced with sundry
explanations, was signed by the other two iopec.
tors. Mr. Webster stated the circumstances of
the election, that at the chise of the poll it was
found that 383 ballots had been cast, four more
than the number of names on the clerk's roll, of
which l'J2 were for t'keke, and 191 for Kahale
wai : hence a certificate of election was given to
I'keke by Mo3t, that it was afterwards discov
ered by the other two inspectors that three voter
had voted twice lor t'keke ; they therefore reject
ed thret of his votes, and further, in order to
have the number of ballots and names enrolled
correspond, they rejected also one of Kahalewais
Totes: this operation left I'keke 159 Totes and
Kahalewai I'M : tltey two therefore gave Kahale
wai a certificate. In views of these circumstances
Mr. Webster thought the election could not be
called a valid one. and moved that the seat for
Koolauloa be declared still vacant. Mr. Kaakua
thought the cheapest way. in order to save fur
ther bother to the House or Inspectors, would be
to accept tho certificate signed by the majority of
- S J . -t T T. 1 -I J
ine inspectors anu uecuire nanaiewai trie mem
ber for Koolauloa : he could not see why the
decision of a majority of the Inspectors in an
election case was not as binding as the decision
of a majority f the Judges of the Supreme
Court in matters of ligitation. After a short de
bate the seat was declared still vacant by a vote
of 14 to 9.
Mr. Dowsett's bill amending the law relating
to women who became pregnant by illicit inter
course, passed its third reading.
Mr. Widemann's bill relating to the wholesale
Tending of spirituous liquors, was read the third
time. Mr. Baldwin moved to have it recom
mitted. After a short debate the bill passed.

to commute the road labor in task work, passed
the eeouud reading and was ordered to be en

FBI THE SEAT OF WAR.
The clipper ship Lotus, Leckie, arrived cn the 31st
of May, after a long passage . f 20 daj's, bringing a
small Eastern mail aud the newspaper expresses.
From our San Francisco files we extract and con
dense the following summary of telegraphic news:
YoRKTOWN KvaCTaTED BY TUE ItfcHKLS.
Washington. May 4. Yorkiown was evacuated
last night, and we now occupy the enemy's works.
Tbey left a large amount of camp equipage and guns'.
The following has juia been received by the War
IlEAIQtAKTfcRd Abmt or THR PutomaC, May 4.
To Hon. K. .M. Stanton, Secretary of War Sir:
We have taken transports, guns, ammunition and
camp equipage, and we bold the entire rebel woiks,
which our engineers report to be very hi rung. I have
thrown all my cavalry and horse artillery in pursuit,
supported by the infantry. 1 have cent Franklin's
Division and as much more as can be transported by
water, to West Point to-dfiy. The gunbosts have
gone up the York river to Gloucester, which is also
in oar possession. 1 shall push the enemy to the
From army correspondents we have the following:
We entered the enemy's works at 5 o'clock this morn
ing, (Sunday.) which tbey bad deserted four hours
before. Everything was fund in utter confusion.
About 50 f ieces of artillery were left spiked. A large
amount of medieil stores, ammunition, camp equip
age, tents and private property of officers were left.
Several deserters c ime into our liues, aud one states
that the rebels evacuated owing to the near approach
of our parallels, and that they feared the success of
our gunboats in the York aud the James livers.
Gen. Johns'. n gave orders to evacuate on Thursday,
and MagruJer is said to have strenuously opposed the
evacuation, saying, if tbey could not whip the Feder
als here, they could not anywhere in Virginia.
Deserters all agree that their troops were much
demoralized and disheartened when the crder to
evacuate was given, as all anticipated A fight. The
rebels bad 100,000 nieu on the Peninsula, und 400
pieces of artillery. It is believed they have fallen
back behind Williamsburg, where they are expected
to make a stand. Geu. Stoneham. commanding a
large force of cavalry and artillery, 13 in full pursuit
of the enemy, and will probably come up with their
rear before night, if they remain near Williamsburg.
The gunboats have passed Vorktown, and are now
shelling the shores. Following them are a number
of vessels loaded with troops, to effect a landing.
Official reports just recviveJ say the enemy have
left 71 guns in the works. The Gloucester Point
ordnance store was also left.
All manner of speculations are rife as to the prob
able cause of the evacuation of Yorkiown. The
geueral opinion seems to be the temporary defense of
Richmond, and the speedy abandonment of Virginia
by the rebel government, should its army be so fortu
nate as to elude McClellan, which is now a matter of
great doubt. Others intimate a sudden offensive
strategy and dush on Washington. This is regarded
A dispatch from Vorktown to the Times has the
following : The retreat of the rebels appears to have
been precipitate. They commenced dismounting and
carrying their guns to Williamsburg four days ngo.
Wugons have been engaged transporting ammunition
and provisions for a week past. 2,500 sick were sent
to Richmond ten days since. The rebel soldiers had
negroes working on the entrenchments till 2 o'clock
on Saturday morning, when the real guard was
ordered to stop work and take up the march for
Williamsburg. 10.000 rebels were sent from Winn's
.Mill to reinforce the army sent from Richmond to
oppose McDowell's advance. The rebel troops
particularly those under Magruder have mutinied
on several occasions within the last two weeks. 5.000
of his men threaten to lay down their arms, unless
they receive food and clothing. A number of mines
had been prepared for our troops, by placing Prussian
shells under the giound in the roadway and entrance
to the fort. No whites were to be found, and only a
few negro women.
The Battle at Williamsburg.
A battle was fought on Monday, May 5, at this
village, located a few miles inland from Yorktown.
The rebels were retreating from Yorktown towards
Richmond and were being pursued by the Union
army under Gen. McClellan.
The following is an account of the br.ttle. The
battle on Monday was a warmly contested engage
ment. The approaches to the earthworks were
through ravines and swamps, while the rain fell in
torrents throughout the day. The men had also
been lying on their arms all 'he previous night, and
were soaked, and the rain chilled them with cold.
The battle raged from early morning until three
o'chick in the afternoon, when McClellau arrived
with fresh trofpa and relieved Hooker's division,
who were nearly ptostrate with fatigue. The 3d
Regiment of Sickles brigade had its ranks terribly
thinned by the enemy's batteries. They are repre
sented as having fought with such bravery that not
less than 200 of them were killed and wounded.
After the arrival of McClellan, the enemy were
fiercely charged on ty Hancock's brigade, and were
driven within their works before nightfall with a
heavy loss. Nearly 700 of their dead were left on
the field, with many wounded, though most of the
latter were carried into Williamsburg. Our loss was
nearly S00 killed and 700 wounded.
During the night, the enemy fled in great confusion,
and when next morning Williamsburg was occupied
by the Federals, not one opponent was to be seen.
The roids in the vicinity were strewed with arms
Yobktow.v, May 7. The latest intelligence from
the field of battle is that McClellan came up with
the Rebels eight miles beyo:.d William-tcirg. After
a severe skirmish with their rear gutrd he put them
to flight across the Chickahomioy, the bridges across
which they bad burued.
We have received a large additional number of
deserters, who bad nothing to eat for forty-eight
hours but a few hard biscuit. When brought in
they fell down exhausted.
Heavy cannonading was beard at an early hour
this morning by boats coming down the river. The
result is not known.
There is no doubt that the whole Rell army is in
a state of disorganization, unltr the pursuit of
McClellan, and fleeing with great precipitation with
out the iutention of making a stand anywhere. Un
less they reach Richmond by I oats via the James
river, they will certainly be intercepted by the forces
landeJ at West Point. Not less than fifty steamers
are engaged transporting the balance of our army to
On Monday 1 st the enemy took one Pennsylvania
battery, having first killed all the horses. The bat
tery having but a small infantry support, was over
powered aud compelled to surrender lefore the close
of the day. The battery was, with one of the enemy's,
The rebels burned their gunboats on York river
yesterday morning. We have taken many prisoners.
Two companies of the 8th Illinois cavalry are report
ed captured by the enemy. Gen. McClellan was
struck by a fragment of shell, but was not injured.
The roads are in a bad conJitiou, which greatly im
pedes our advance.
New Yopk. May 9. A telegram from Gen. Marcy,
of General McClellan's staff, says that the forces
engaged at Williamsburg were 30,000 Fede-nls and
50,000 relels. Gen. Joe Johnston led the latter in
person. They have lost several of their best officers.
Our men fought valiantly, and used the bayonet
The following account of Gen. Hancock's bayonet
charge is published in the Herald to-day : There
was scarcely a hundred yards between the rebels and
our men when our skirmish fire ceased. The Fifth
Wiscousln and 43d New York formed to close order;
at long-range, musket barre's came In a level and
one terrible volley tore through the rebel ranks; some
long-range muskets came to second level, and at the
order Charge byonets," away went the two regi
ments, amidst loud cheers. Gallant as the foe were,
tbey could not stand this, and for a space generally
estimated at three-quarters cf a mile, they ad ranee-1
under a fire splendidly served from a battery, with a
cloud of skirmishers stretched across their front.
The whole fire was very destructive. The rebels had
not tbe nerve, broke, and fled in a complete panic.
Washisgto.v. May 9. The War Department has
received the following :

Fobtbkss M jnroe. May 1. Com. Farragut had
proposel terms of capitulation to the Mayor, which
terms the latter accepted. New Orleans, at the last
accounts, was held by tbe battalion of marines from
tbe federal squadron.
The Petersburg, V.. Express, of the 29th April,
has a long editorial regarding the loss of New Orleans.
It says : The city was captured by federal gunboats,
tbey being encased in wet hay. so that hot and cold
shot were of no use." The LctiUiana, (rebel) mount
ing 27 guns, was sunk, the Kxpress says, by federal
steel pointed couical shot. Their cotton was destroy
ed by fire, and the sugar was emptied in the river.
The specie in tbe banks was all removed, when Gen.
Lovell started from the city.
Cairo, Mat 5. A refugee from Memphis a week
since, reports that the Memphis papers of Sunday
last published a dispatch announcing the occupation
of Raton Rouge, by the federal forces.
Butler's army had landed and occupied New Or
leans. A large number of citizens bad held public
rejoicings, which were attended by hundreds who
indulged in enthusiastic demonstrations of joy.
In the passage of our gunboats up the river, no
opposition was made. At Baton Rouge, the r:bel
troops lately enlisted were stationed ; they all fled at
tbe approach of the fleet. Publication of news in
regard to movements of the federal fleet was forbidden
by the Southern authorities ; but the informant
learned from persons from below that the gunboats
bad passed Fort Adams, and were near Fort Dana.
At Vicksburg. the fortifying, which had been in
progress of construction last week, was nearly com
pleted. Guns of heavy calibre had been sent from
Memphis and mounted for its defense. The rolling
stock of different railroads had been concentrated at
Memphis to take away citizens ou the approach of the
enemy. In all the cities und towns along the river
there was great terror at the unexpected capture of
New Orleans. Great indignation was felt towards
Gen. Lovell, who was accused of cowardice and im
becility. Louisville, May 8. Two thoroughly reliable Ken
tucky gentlemen, just arrivid from New Orleans,
report that all along tbe Mississippi, from Memphis
to New Orleans, there was one general bonfire of
property, particularly of cottoc, of which from 11,000
to 12.0O0 bales were burned in New Orleans. The
people of the river towns were all retreating inland,
destroying property along all the tributaries of the
Mississippi. The planters in many cases werenpply
iug the torch to their own property. Among a great
number of planters, but one man was found who
objected to the burning of lis cotton.

He took the whole force prisoners, numbering 2,000.
Monterey, Tenn., May 6. Rain has fallen in tor
rents during the last 24 hours, putting the roads in
a horrible condition.
General ilalleck moved bis headquarters to this

Huutsville aud Bridgeport, Ala., were occupied by
our troops May 3. Two six-pounders aud all the

About 300 of the wounded have since died. Our
burial parties report 2,500 to 3,000 rebels fouud
dead on the field.
Up to May 8, there bad been no engagement, tbe
armies being but two miles apart.
Washington, May 6. Dispatches to the New York
papers say that the Select Committee of the House
on the Confiscation and Emancipation bill have in
structed their Chairman to report. Of the two bills,
the first is agreed to by Noel I (Mo.,) Elliott, Hutchins,
Beamin and Sedgwick, and opposed by Mallory
(Ky.,) and Cobb (N. J.) It confiscates all real and
personal property of leading classes of the rebels, who
shall continue in rebellion after the passage of the
bill. By another section, the property oft all others

The Time's dispatch says that the main road of
retreat up York Peninsula is close on the bank of
York river, which will bring the rebel army in range
of our gunboats that are conducting Franklin's
transports to Iheir rear. This division doubtless will
be able to intercept the rebel retreat aud force them
to give battle or surrender.
McClellan has transports sufficient to forward
200,000 troops from Yorktown to West Point imme
diately, and it will not be surprising if he captures
the bulk of the rebel army and takes Richmond with
in a week.
Washington, May 6. The New York Times'
dispatch says, that the French Minister has gone to
Richmond, to assure the rebel government that the
Emperor does not recognize them as a power among
nations. England and France by recognizing them
as belligerents did all that could be expected on the
part of neutral governments. Continued hostilities,
by the threatened destruction of the cotton and to
bacco crops, would only lie a wanton injury to the
commerce of the world, injuring France aud England
even more than the United States. That the resort
to a guerrilla warfare, as proposed when their armies
were destroyed, would demoralize society and would
be simply a return to barbarism. The rebels have
been admonished, therefore, that the cessation of
' ostilities is a duty to themselves, and which all
civilized nations will unite in requiring of them.
Gen. Law ton, commanding the rebel forces at
Savannah, Ga., has formally communicated to the
City Council his determination to surrender. The

Cuba also chased tbe .Yasuville, but the latter was
too swift for her. The JYashcille was nlso loaded
with arms, intending to run the blockade.

The rebel gunboat fleet arrived at Memphis on
Tuesday, and immediately went up to Fort Pillow.
The Memphis papers do not believe that Commodore
Farragut's fleet would come up tbe river that far.
The steamer It'rishl was fired into on Friday
night (May 3d.) six miles below Savannah, and five

Fortress Monroe, May 2. A vessel that left
Norfolk last night, arrived this rooming. Com.
Tatnall, in command of the .Vrrrintir, received
sealed orders on Monday and sailed, but, on opening
them in Elizabeth river, found he was ordered to run
the blockade and proceed up the York rier. He
thereupon returned to Norfolk, and immediately

THE HAWAIIAN STEAM AND GENER
AL INTER-ISLAND A lUATlON
s i oo.odti.
IT IS PROPOSED TO FORM A NEW
Company, under the alwve title, on tbe following basis :
1st. The Company to consist principally of all the Suyar
Companies, Planters. Merchants and freighters on the different
Islands. No one of which to hold a prcK:ideratinK interest in
the Company, or if they do. to bave only the aame vote as
Shareholders with less interest.
2d. It is propo&ed to purchase the steamer "Kilauea as
well as tbe Charter privileges. Buildings, c. of tbe Hawaiian
Steam Navigation Company, at a fair valuation.
3d. To apply to the Legislature now ia session, fr a new
Charter, extending the time of the present one to fifteen years ;
and to grant the new Company a subsidy for carrying the mails,
and Uie privilege of having steamers of a site to suit the trade,
and to be allowed also to own and run schooners if they choose;
but the schooners to have no special privileges. 7 he Company
to forfeit all their privileges should they fail for twelve months
to run a steamer of not less than 1HU tons.
4th To run the "Kilauea" in tho meantime, as long as she
pays her expenses, or until she can be sold, when a suitable boat
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 Company to run them until they
find by experience, whether it will lie to their interest to replace
them with, or convert them into steam vessels.
It will be seen tliat on this principle, the Planters and the
Public, as well as tbe new Company, place themselves in an
absolutely safe position, for they will have it in their power to
command the freight, and to run steamers or sailing vessels, or
both, whichever proves to be most profitable, and most to tbe
general interest, whilst the planters a ill never be left without
vessels to bring their produce to market. The rbject ut divid
ing up the shares is. besides the evidnt one of interesting the
whole community, that the boats can be run without insurance,
as the interest that each person holds being small, and also
each shareholder owning a share in a number of comparatively
small vessel, one insures the other; whilst should their large
steamer be lost, the schooners or st'-aro-srhooners would do a
good business, and pay interest on her cost and their own. until
a new vessel could be olKained.
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 until it is obtained the purcliase will not go into
effect unless by consent of the Shareholders.
No cash advances will be required by Shareholders, as the
approved notes ef any Planter. Merchant, or c.tiren will be
taken for the property to be purchased.
No one applying fir shares will be bound to take them, until
he approves of the steps taken, and resolutions passed at the
first meeting of the sulMCribers. the date of which will be duly
advertised ; and if he does not approve of same, be can with
draw hi application.
Applications for shares will be received by the undersigned
in the form hereto annexed. It is proposed that no one firm or
individual be allowed to take more than $3Oo0 interest in the
new Company, or if they d.j, that they will have the same num
ber of votes as a Shareholder, holding $3000 stock.
All applications for shares will be granted in the order they
are received by the undersigned. J
