Ia one of our exchanges, we Cnd the f. Mowing relating to the

they wore. The ne night there was a fearful hurricane, and
tbe Southern Ki-jlit bore up for the nearest port to land the
men she had rescued. Owing to adverse winds he was unable
to make any port short of Pernauibuco, where she put in previ
ous to October 8.
The following, which we extract from a letter in the Built tin,
is the first rejmrt from the coast whaling Beet :
The ship Air, Captaiu Fi.di, arrived at the mouth of Scam
xnon's lagoou about two weeks ago, from Honolulu. This is the
only whaler here So far, and has done nothing yet but catch and
cure a or 10 i.arre.s ..r hue h.li f-r their winter s eating. Allthe
trew eact pi the o lin ers are Kanakas. V sterda v the Vessel
I mailed I
op to its place of aiic'iornire l..r the winter, which is iu the smht
of my house, and to-day lb- Ir hve tine whale U ats were on the
wing looki. jf out for the tinny monsters. Tin's, you will recollect,
is a famous whaling gr und. Captain Kelly, who is first ofiicer
of the iVir, has been here three won years, and says that
he has seen il whales killed iu one day in night of my house '.
The report from the northern whalinp fleets were considered
Tery cheering in New Uedford. I!y the following from the Stand
aril, there apear no d-.olt that a number of ships will soon be
fitted out for the North Pacific.
Qkd Niws. TIh! news from the Arctic Ocean whalers at
Xlooolum. t-velher with the report by telegraph a few days since
of ao average catch by the tHrhot.sk tle;t, causes a buoyant feel
loir among our merchants. They will probably commence fitting
hips for the North early ia the Spring.
In local trade, business has been very dull, attributable in
part to the inclement weather. Retailers complain of an una
aal stagnation, caused perhaps by the advanced rates charged
tut goods, the natives not being able as yet to understand the
reasons t.x the change ir prices. Aud yet many of the goods
re retailed to them at less than the uhota.ilc prices now
Charged for the same goods in an Francisco and New York.
It will tak time f..r the natives to fall in with the increased
prices, but they will find it necessary to procure clothe, let the
price be what ft may, aud it is to be hoped that the increased
demand for tabor throughout the group to supply our rice and
agar plantations, wdl enable them to purchase all they may
The bark Comtf sailed on Sunday n-orning al-out 9 o'clock,
takinr a f.ur list of passengers, and a very full cargo f (!mni
tic priUucc, which will be found spe.:ilie.I in its pro;r place.
The bark Richmond, 11 days from New Bedford, came in
on Friday last, with a full cargo, which will also be founJ sj ci
fled below. We understand she will tc fitted out as a whaler.
The cargo of the brig Lopud has been sold ou private terms,
and Is now bein - landed. It consists mostly of heavy timlr,
which was shipped froui Puget Sound for Adelaide, but owing to
the vessel's requiring repairs at this port, the voyage has been
abandoned and the cargo sold to Uie satisfaction of the owners.
The brijr will le found advertised for sale in to-day's paper.

THURSDAY, JAXUARY 20.
In looking over the files of papers, received
since our last issue, by the steamship St ulhiud,
we find some items of news not before noticed.
There appears to be no doubt tliaf the iron-clad
Monitor is lost. She, with another iron-clad
vessel, (probably the Passaic,) sailod from For-
tr.s Monroe under sr-aled nrd.-rs. sumw.s,, t lift
destined for Charleston. When a little south of
I Cape Ilattera., (offtho coast of North Carolina,)
J which i3 famous as a etriny locality, the Moni
tor sprung a leak aud sunk in about 42 fathoms
water, carrying with her two of her officers and
thirty-eight of her men. It is probable that a
portion of her crew were saved, though we find
no account of it. This occurred about January
1st. She will be a total loss, and no attempts
will probably bo made to raise her. Her race
has been a short one, but she has won a world
wide fame, such as no war-vessel before her ever
had, and which would not have been increased
had she existed half a century. We insert on
our first page a picture of this famous vessel,
which is the moot correct representation that has
been given of her. Alluding to her loss, the
Sacramento B:c says :
Thk Monitor. This gallantdike cr.ift has sunk beneath the
wav-s of ocean. What the nation's enemies could not accom
plish, tle elements did. Put she fought a good fight and has
run her course, she owes tiiis people nothing. That one day's
battle has made her immortal. Hie lives as a giant amnz the
navies famoi s a ove all that has gone lefore. The founder of
a new era iu the history of the world's jwiwt-r and progress, iu
wbicri the sea" of empire and of commerce, of greatm-ss in art
and utility in science, will lie transferred from the old world to
the new. her frame is preserved in archives i.f brass. The
booming of her first gun iu the waters of Hampton Koads an
nounced the inauguration of an eioch in which the wrongs of
nations will be checked, and the rights of man vindicated, ijhe
di I her work well, aud sank into an honored grave.
There were nine Jiew iron clads ready on the
1st of January fur active service, besides four
already in commission on the Atlantic seaboard
at that date, (not including the Monitor). The
Roanoke is ordered to guard New York harbor.
and the others will probably be dispatched south.
The loss of the Monitor demonstrates that public
confidence cannot b? placed in this class of ves
sels for ocean service.
Few persons have any idea of the magnitude
of the military plans of tho Government in the
Southwestern States. A glance at them will not
be uninteresting just now :
1. The Army of the Ohio, under Oen. Granger, located ia
various parts of Kentucky, comprise about 30.000 troops.
2. The Army of tho Cumberland, under Gen. Kosekrans,
which has just gained the great victory at Murfreesboro, num
bers 45 000. It is intended to operate in Kastern Tennessee, and
wIl le assisted by ihe Army of the Ohio.
3- The Army of Tennessee, under Oen. Grant, head quarter
at Memphis. Last revrted near Ilolly Swings in Mississippi.
It num tiers alut SO.OiiO.
4. Tbe Army of the Mississippi, under Gen. M'Clernand,
which recently attacked Yicksburg, and was repulsed. Num
5. T!ie Army of the Southwest, under Gen. Curtis, bead
quarters at Helena, Arkansas, on tbe Mississippi River. Num
bers some 35.O0O. Late reports State that Oen. Pope, is to take
char.'e of this army.
tt. The Army of the Frontier, under Oen. SchofWld, in South
western Missouri, numlnrs about 30,t00 men.
7. ien. Hank's Army. ANiut 2o.0m troops are s'atiored
at New Orleans, and the Bank's expedition comprised 60.000
land forces, which are reiirted to have tteen landed at Itatou
Kouge, Louisiana, making together 75.000 iu this division.
These several armies number 270,000 men,
whieh comprise the troops actually on the move.
l'.id-3 them, there are numerous reserves on
garrison duty at various points, aj St. Louis,
Memphis, Nashville, Cairo, kc. So that the
whole number of available troops in the South
western States probably exceeds 400,000, thus
giving the government the power to quell the
rebellion, if its commanders choose to use with
vigor the weans at their disposal.
It now appears that Gen. Banks went to New
Orleans to supercede Gen. Butler. This will no
doubt prove to be a wise move for the Govern
ment, for although Gen. Butler's administration
hasi, in some respects, been successful, yet in his
etern rule, he incurred the hitter hatred of a
large portion of the foreign population of that
city, and especially of the foreign officials. He
had returned to New York, where he arrived
January 1. Congress passed a vote of thanks to
him for his successful administration while in
New Orleans. If he is now sent to take posses
sion of Charleston, and successfully teaches its
hot-blooded rebels the first duty of citizens obe
dience he will cam a fame as lasting as that of
any poldier who ha preceded him. Charleston
is UutlvrV arrropriate Fliere, anJ we hoj.e he
will be tx-nt there, clothed with the powers of a
Cien. Hanks enters on his new eli with a hih
rerutation as a eueceful e':aniandcr, and
r-usdesood of adininittrutive ahiiities that qualify
him to b; a ruler. lie is extremely popular with
the people, and judin from the magnitude of
the expedition with which he has been fitted out
by the Government, a wise and prudent adminis
tration, if not success, may be expected from
him. He has 75,000 effective troups and a lare
naval fleet under him, and with thee he will
probably be able not only to take Yieksburg arid
Mobile, but to re-possess the whole Southwestern
territory, and put both the Confiscation and
Emancipation Proclamations into force.
Reverses are p-Msi-ible, it is true ; but when we
take into account the greatly-increased strength
of the general government now, in that quarter,
over what it was January 1, 1SG2, and the great
advance made there by it in regaining possession
of its territory, and that the rebellion, which, a
year ag controlled a dozen states, is now nar
rowed down to half that number, it must be con
ceded that the prospects ot suppressing tlie re
bellion are double what they wire in January,
102. Still the lost territory must be conquered
inch by inch, and when once reconquered, will be
dedicated forever to freedom. Temporary re
verses will only postpone the final result.
The Scotland. This Cue steamship came into
port on Thursday moruiDj last, having arrived otf
Diamond He id at 10.1 1. M. the previous evening.
She left San Francisco at 2 P. M. on tbe 10th, thus
having made the passage down, wholly under sail, in
eleven days and eight hours, which is certainly a
f good passage, considering that she had her screw to
drag the entire distance. Twelve days with a fair
wind may be set down as her average pasajre between San
Francisco and this port, and generally she will not require to
stop here over 24 hours. She is full ship rip, and in capacity,
rig and accommodations, admirably suited to the trade she has
entered on. It is not unlikely that her first trip to China will
be made without u resort to steam, except what may lie neces
sary in leaving and enteriiij; port. There being no freight here
for Hongkong when she arrived, and as she required no coals,
she sailed apii-i the game day for China. In leaving tiie har
bor, owinjy to a want of Mtearu or Some other cause, she jrot
aground, but readily backed off with her steam as soon as full
pressure was on. She was aground only a few minutes and sus
tained no damage, as it was in the harbor channel.
X2T The mail may be looked for about the Slst,
by the schooner Florence or ship Sea Serpent, both
cf which vessels will be fully due then. The New
York mail of Dec. -1 enly may.be expected, with
San Francisco papers to the 17th of Janutry.

Cutter Passages In our last issue we etateJ
that the passige of the I'd nkce was ten d js. We
find, however, that it was sherter than that, and
like a crack racehorse, the ought to be well tallied
at the goal, the left San Francisco on the morning
cf the 11th iSunJiy) passing Point lioDito, where
the pi'cts are usual'y discharged, at S.J o'clock.
The winJ was rather westerly, which forceJ her
during the first day cut more to the southward than
Capt. Tajlor desired to go. It soon hauled to the
Nrth and theu the N. E., with a whole sail breeze, which made
the Halo cii per jump through the water almost as fast as
Turk jumped over the turf on the 4:h of July last. From the
12ih tii! he hove to .:T Honolulu she struck a B hue, as
straight as an architect couid draw it, arriving off I'iamond
Head at 1' o'clock on the evening of the 20th. having made the
run in nine days and 13 hours, the fired several guns, which
were distinctly heard on shore. This is the quickest trip ehe
has evt-r made, so far as our record fchows. The following arc
her L st passages :
ls-V; Yankee, Smith 9 .lays 18 hours
15J Lovett 10 .lays 3 hours
1S60, Feb. V) " Lnrett 10 days
1503, Jan. 20 " Taylor a days 13 hours
The shortest passages hither from San Francisco are these.
So that the Vuukte now stands third :
l'il....?hip Fair Wind. Orowell S days 17 hours
lsa'J. . . .Ship Black Hawk. Bowers 9 .lays 9 hours
lsi3....Bark Vankee, Taylor 0 days 13 hours
It's pretty tall sailing to log oil 21u0 miles in nine and a half
days, anl taking into consideration the size of the above
vessels, and also that the cl.'ppi rs were in ballast and the bark
luaded, Capt. Taylor may well rest contented with his laurels.
ZSf A clipper ship passed the port, bound west
ward, ou FiiJuy night, the '-'3d, and was seen by the
steamer Annie Laurie. Had it been daylight at the
time, Capt. Ilazzard thinks he could have spoken her.

Noon dat Hock. As this sunken rock is directly
in the track of vtsfels bound from tbe islands to San
Francisco, the fallowing particulars reganling it,
obtained frcui the captain cf the wrecked ship -Voon-day,
by eur fiiend B. F. lurham, Esq., will be
of service to shipmasters in the Pacific : ' The rock
bears East by compass fro-n the .V. Jf". Farralone,
distant about 7 miles, and has no breakers nor any
indication ff shoal water. The bearings and directiou of the
rock have been mcorrecuy rvi-orted in some ci ice p.ijiers.
This vou may depend on." We do not tinJ the
je depth of wer
on the rjck state 1. but a clipper of 1200 tons
from 16 to IS feet of water, and as the ship simply struck the
rock, knocked a hole in the bottom, and passed on as if nothing
had hapi.T.ed. it may be i.ift rred that the rck is merely a spur,
which however n u.-t bt a dangerous one to vessels drawing 15
feet. Its exact locality and extent will probably toon lie deter
mined by the U. S. Surveying schooners.
