The commercial news from the Ka-tt saows the disturbance in
the markets there as increaving, and prices of moat kind of
merchandise subject t frerpaent and gnat change. The
markets are extreicely feverish and easily nerated on by spec
ulator. Whale oil ami lone still cia nlained high rates, which Is owing
to the fa4.-t that they are sought .for as a remittance to Ku
rope, and t!.at the stock of both sperm and whale is becoming
reduced to extremely low figures, without a proiect of being
replenished to the extent of frner year. This year's imports
to latest advice will be observed by referring to the reiort of
the New Bedford market, below. Taking these fact together
it seems more than likely that oil and bone will, during the
winter, reach prices as extraordinary as the prvsent premium
on gold; and st.ip-ma-.ters will act wisely in sending forward
as much of their cargoes as possible to realize these rates.

"The Eastern news by this opportunity is of much interest.
Recent Federal victories in the touihwc-st give hojw of con
tinned and prrananent sucxt-s in that quarter. From the
Army of the tViomac undrr MTlclI.in's command, our infor
mation is Very meacre. We bear enough, however, to show
that an onwardly movement Into Virginia has already com
menced, but notlnr.p whatever has yet bt-en revealed as to the
ultimate plans of the new campaign. One of the noticeable
vents in the Yankrt't budget of news is the raid of Stuart's
rebel cavalry into l'-nn Ivania, an act of rebel impudence
that is without matrrial importance, except as being the first
invasion of free soil" during the war. Marine war risks,"
which I art subsided into a very small percentage, have sudden
ly raised on account of the apearaiice of the pirate Alabama
in the Atlantic. This vessel is the latest production of Knglich
neutrality, and doubtless will create much havoc among our
commerce before she can be brought to by any of our man-of-war.
In the way of local news we have but little to communicate
that you will not tetter barn from the public prints. The
ui'sciiptions to the Sokliers and Sailors Relief Fund are still

of a quarter of a million of dolbirs. Already f00.UH, have

increased when our loyal countrymen at the Hawaiian Inlands

now ruling at the Ka--t. Many pf our heaviest importers are
making extraordinary efforts to Collect and remit in advance of
the usual time of payment, and In consequence there has been
very general draining out of njuch surplus money hen-tofore
floating around for short iiivestipetit. This unusual demand,
coupled with tho fact that much capita! heretofore invested for

The Yi'tir cms.
Our data? by the Yankie are to October VJ,
and by telegraph from Washington to the 18th.
On our next page,
we insert the iten9 of most
interest, that have occurred during the fortnight
from October 4 to ISth. Our readers have no
idea of the difficulty of making up an intelligi
ble summary of events from the disjointed tele
srams, which are often eo brief in dates and
places, as to leave the public to guess at what
the news really is. And here we. may ttop to
insert a suggestion to the publishers of the three
California papers Alfa, Bulletin and Sacramento
Union,) to whose enterprise mainly is due the
telegraphic news received from the East, respect
ing their agent who presides over the telegraph
at the Eastern terminus, Chicago, or whatever
other point he is located at. This agent should
lie a man of first class ability and much experi
ence in collating news, perfectly poeted up in
American and European affairs, dates, places,
politics, diplomacy, anything and everything else
that requires his oversight in short, a walking
encyclopedia, like Train. It is not one man in
10,000 who is fitted for the post of agent to
collate, digest and forward the news daily trans
piring and received at hia cfEce from every part
of the United Suites as well as Europe. Even
if his salary were 5.000 a year, better pay
that than lose twice that sum in stupid tele
grams, often sent over the wires a second time,
and more often corrected as mistakes. The agent
now employed is evidently not all that is wanted
' u- , .t .
e have in our mind s eye at this moment, one
it , , , .. t
WOuM ft reat ""proYCmeiit on the pres-
i ent arrangement we refer to the Alta's former
versatile correspondent from Honululu, Impri
matur, lie however, is just now probably too
much interested in sugar statistics to leave for
any place so distant as that. Tho subject is an
important one, and the work of forwarding the
Eastern news in the lest and clearest manner
possible, for the Pacific coast and all the Pacific
ocean, is one of no little importance, and will
no doubt receive the attention of the parties
more directly interested. Most foreigners de
pend now mainly on the California journals for
their foreign news, and their circulation is bound
to increase every year.
Hut to the war news. The advices from Vir
ginia arc not what were anticipated. Inertia is
the great disease that affects the Union army
in its movement, at least about Washington.
We looked for some advance, souie movement ;
but instead of that the report comes, that all is
quiet along the lines. The battle of Antietam
occurred on the 17th of September, and the
rebels retreated over the Potomac on the ISth.
But from that time to October 18th, no advance
had ben made. "xopt a reconnoiencf now and
then south of the Potomac. M'Clellan'e army
was at the latest dates stationed along the Poto
mac, mostly in the neighborhood of Harper's
Ferrv. How laro his army is we have no means
of telling ; but thera must be not less than oOO
or 400,000 soldiers now around Washington
An entire month has passed, and no forward
movement made. A telegram of the 14th
says there was soon to be some stir, but it had
not taken place up to tho 18th.
The rebel forces supposed to be about ?00,
000, were concentrated around Winchester, iu
the Shenandoah valley, under Lee and Jackson,
evidently waiting a demonstration on the part
of the federals. It seems as if a battle might
occur soon in that vicinity, but the experience
of the past teaches us not to look for any en
casement till it occurs. CJen. Sigel, who is in
the neighborhood of Hull's Run, with some
20,000 men, may be the first object of their
attack ; but he would more likely be the attack
ing party, were it not that he is compelled to
obey orders, and keep still.
The raid of Stuart with his cavalry into Penn
sylvania was a dashing feat, which will elicit
the praise of the whole South, as it has the won
der of the North. It has shown how easy a
thing it is with cavalry to make a sudden d.u-h
accompanied by great destruction, almost before
the enemy knows of it. Cen. Sigel is a soldit-r
of the same stamp as Stuart. Give him a bat
talion of cavalry, and we will wager that be
would find his way to Richmond, do as much
damage, and get back as safely. Stuart has
only shown to Maryland and Pennsylvania what
Morgan has been showing in Kentucky for four
From Kentucky and Tennessee, the news is
most decidedly favorable to the Union cau?e.
In the former state, Uragg and the mass of the
rebels had In-en driven into the southeast corner
of the state ; but as they have always shown
themselves best in an even race, they will un
doubtedly escape somewhere. The telegrams
relating to the two battles in Kentucky, and at
Corinth, will be found on the next page. In
Missouri, too, the rebels have been worsted, and
again driven out of the state.
A vivid picture of the destitution of the rebel
army, as given by an eye-witness, and evidently
reliable, will be found among the foreign news.
It indicates that they are becoming 44 hard
up," and in absolute ne-d of the necessaries of
life. This is but the prelude of a more extended
destitution which will gIiuw itself everywhere in
the south. After reading the accounts, one
cannot help admire their fortitude and bravery,
which are worthy of a better cause than that of
seeking to destroy their government.
Drafting has been ordered to commence in
several of the northern states, and probably
has already. !een completed. This mode of
recruiting the army is the only proper one, for it
takes the rich as well as the poor, the noi?y
croakers as well as the more willing. It would
have been better if resorted to earlier.
In our comments on the news two or three
weeks since, we threw out the idea that the re
ported tender for peace on the part of the south
was well founded. The following corroborates i
us, both in its probable correctness, and that the
offer would be instantly rejected by the govern
Nt w York, October IS. The llrrahl s Washington despatch
says: An imprcion prevails that there is some troth in the
rumor telegraphed some time since, that while in Maryland, the
rebel general forwarded to :he Washington ISoveriinient over
tures of peace, which h-ading Southerners believed would be ac
cepted. If such a proposition was made, there is no douU
it was declined by the Federal Government.
There was much curiosity respecting the manner
in which the Emancijiation decree would be re
ceived by the people. This has been solved, and
instead of that document causing dissension, it
h.i9 had an opposite effect, and has made
the people more united for the government. Its
effect has keen favorable throughout the north.
In the south, however, it ha.iad a contrary
effect, and served as a firebrand among the rebels.
The following is probably reliable :
Nkw York, Octolx-r 9. The Timet'' Washington despatch !
has the following: Lincoln's Kuiaiicipation proclamation has !
inspired a most lively terror throughout the south. The rebels
quake with apprehension. They express fears that It will be the
means of producing a counter revolution in the ulave states.
The soldiers desire to return home to protect their families. '
They believe that the negroes have organized secret associations
and arc only waitine nu auspicious opportunity to rise rn
masse. It is said that the negroes are becoming restive, hav
ii g heard already of the pru-laiuation. Women and children
in several districts were retiring to the cities fur safety. The
Consternation seems to be universal.
Although the slaves are acknowledged to be
beyond the immediate reach of the edict, vet
that it will eventually reach them is evident
from the above. 44 The object of the proclama
tion of the President, however," Fays the Alta,
with much truth, 44 is not to excite servile insur
rection. It was issued for a double purpose to
deprive the rebels of the element which Fupj lies
them food while they are fighting for the over
throw of the Government, and to eradicate for
all time to come the evil which has been tho
primary cause of all our trouble. The freedom
of the slave does not imply the right on his part
to fire his master's dwelling or cut his master's
throat. Attempts at servile insurrection will be
suppressed wherever our armies penetrate.
Their duty will be simply to prevent the master
from exhorting compulsory service from the ne
gro, and to keep the peace between the two. If
slave-risings, however, should occur in any
place where our soldiers aro not in force, the
rebels must look out for their own safety ; and
! the necessity of doing so will, of course, weaken
Commenting on the same proclamation the S.
F. lh raid says :
4 It is plain to ee that slave institutions are doomed on this
continent. The north was long loth to adopt so extreme a
measure as emancipation, but all other means of bringing the
S-mth to reason have failed. Yet, the nation must be saved.
The whole form cf society at the south must be changed. The
aristocracy that brought about the war must be bankrupted
and Placed on an canal footing with their bondsmen. With
their change of condition wiil come a change of opinion, an 1 if
servile insurrection should occur while the change is in progress
the blool be ujon their own heads."
Say or think what we may, the proclamation !
vrill have its effect or the slaves, and will be the :
deathblow of slavery, even should the southern J
confederacy ultimately become sejjirate and" es- i
tabli:died. The border states will undoubtedly i
accept its terms, and receive pay for their libera-
t'd slaves, while the south will forfeit all.
There is no alternative for this result, except by j
the relel states coming to some tenr.e of peace j
before January, 1SG3, which is now very im
probable. The election for state officer3 and Congressmen
iu several of the largest northern states took
place in October, but the results had not been
fully learned up to the latest advices. Enough
however, was known to show that the democra
tic or opposition party bad made considerable
gains in several states. This is easily account
ed for by the fact that a much larger proportion
of the Republican nr Union nin are enrolled
and in service in the army, thus enabling
: the opposition to have a temporary numerical
i superiority. This irregularity will prolaMy be
; remedied by laws enabling voters absent in the
j service of the country to vote in camp, a system
; which has been only partially allowed in the late
J elections, as in most of the states, there are no
j laws to meet the case. The success of the oppo
j sition party is also in a measure attributable to
a growing dissatisfaction with the slow war
movements of the government, and if we cor
rectly read the state affairs in Washington,
there will bo a change of Cabinet before the end
of this year. With the most ample means at
its couimaod, thero apjiears to the people no
good reasons why every post on the southern
coast is not taken, held or utterly destroyed,
when such ports serve as mouths to feed and
nourish the rebellion with supplies from abroad,
without which it would starve to death. There
must be change in the administration of this
war, or the government will soon succumb to in
From Europe no very important news is tele
graphed. Garibaldi has beeu released, and it is
authoritatively stated that he purposes visiting
America, and may engage in the war for the
Union. Now it may be that he is so possessed of
a war fever that he is spoiling for a fight ; but it
appears to us better for foreigners to keep out of
this internal strife, and let Americans settle it
themselves. It is certainly far better to stay
away, than to offer their services, and when
found in a tight place, when most needed, sud
denly take trench leave, as did several of
M'Clellan's aids before Richmond. No one
doubt9 that the reasons for their departure were
very pressing ; still it is somewhat vexatious for
a general in a bad fix to be thus deserted as was
the case then.
The probabilities of foreign intervention in
the American civil strife decrease, according to
the latest advices. This is as it should be. Am
erica is a first class power, and her rights ought
to be respected in all matters pertaining to her
internal affairs. The precedent once established
of foreign intervention in the affairs of any one
of the great powers, it is easy to see that the
most disastrous consequences mijjht follow. For
in any civil strife or rebellion in England or
France, America with the alliance of the other,
might follow out the precedent which may be
set. The European nations see this, and wisely
hold back from establishing a precedent, which
in an evil hour might lead to their own discom
fiture. For these and other palpable reasons,
the probability of intervention diminishes every

Thk Llyi'OR yi csTios. Th initiatory movement tf Ihi iin
poTLiiiit subject, came up WU re (he Honolulu Police Court on
Tuesday last, J. . Austin, F.n , actinp Police Magistrate for
Juile Pavis, prevented by illiuss. Mr. J. Booth, or the Na
tional Hotel, was complained t f tor selling liquor to native
Hawaiioi.s. The defendant's cou-isel, l. I.. Ore.-?. Esq., admit
ted the f.ict. but claimed that there as no law lo preveut him.
and th.ft if there were. s;ioh law was unco:. s;iltitii.:ial and con
trary to treaty stipu'atious. The defense was well prepared,
logical, an l e..ti.pre!icud?J seventeen points. The Magistrate
tmpvse 1 a tine of ;o. a-id the ease was apiealed to the rull
Pencil of the Supreme Court, bef re which, we learn, the cae
will eoiiitmucc uu Monday next, or at farthest oti Tuesday. i.
Hal our confrere watcluJ the Police Court during
the hearing of the above suit as iutently as he did
another case on Friday auj Saturday last, hoping to
find some etartl'iDg judgment to announce to his
readers against his clerical friends, he might hive
stated that Judge Pavis heard the liquor suit, and
not Judge Austin, and thus have relieved us the
trouble if correcting him. He might, moreover,
have learned that it is not the custom of the Supreme
Court to change its fixed sessions to suit every case
coming up fjr trial before it. The probability is,
therefore, that " the liquor qaestiou" will be tried at
the January term of the Court.
