effort to extenJ ibis very proper mole of raising

An ppil f-r from the King, the Queen,
or ettn from the Trustee of that institution would
un-lubielly be recie-l, anJ might be the means
of cU-ictiu? throughout the group at least a thou
enl .'.; r, which wou!J help the institution terj
much. We lo wish to appear officious in this
in titer, but a the plan originates raoni the natives
theuMelve". there can be uo barm in giving it circu
lation, an 1 f p-jss ble aiding it.
l'i bates is the Pacific. The rettl cruiser, it is
stated, and the report appears to be well grounded,
are now in the Pacific. Tbe report is based on the
af5 lavit of Captain LeAch, master of a clipper ship,
which arrive! at Callao. It was sworn to before the
U. ?- Consul and is published in the San Franci-co
All of June 20th. to the effect that be 9aw a vessel
burning off Cape Horn, April 2d. which appeared to
be a prii to steamer near by her. and that she
left the burning vis-el and went in chase of another,
which was in a more favorable position for capture
than he wn. by which accident he escaped. An
other report comes by telegraph from the Atlantic to
the effect that a rebel steamer was seen off Cape
Horn. Tutting these two reports together, there
would appear to be some grounds for the supposition
that this ocean will soon be the fecene of captures
and burnings by Kbel privateers.
Hor-k Taming. The lovers of the equestrian art
will now have an epportucity to witness bow it can
be acquire I and scientifically performed. Profes-or
iklew. as jer a Ivertit-ement in our columns, will
give his 5rnt lecture u Friday afternoon, and an
other on Saturday. No person who has any thing to
do with horses hhoul l fail to learn the Professors's
method of training an 1 fcutxluing the most refractory
atiimiis. The exhibition will consist of a lecture on
hor-e-i, illustrated by an attempt to break in a wild
Tiik Vandkrbilt. A letter received from Pa
nama, states that a report was current there that
the A I ahum. t had bad an engagement with the
et turner VanderbiV , an I that the latter was sunk in
the fiht. The telegraph reports these two vessels at
Sr. Thomas, and the probability is that they had a
fight, but whether the American steamer met the
fie asiened her requires confirmation, though it is
Dot at ail improbable.
Scnpi Death. The friends of Capt. Alexander
C. Tuylor, late master of bark Yankee, will be
painel to bear of bis sudden death, wbiib occurred
in San Francisco, June 18. At the time, be was
Bitting in Mers. M'Ruer & Merrill's store, reading
ti paper, when he fell from his seat and expired, as
is supposed from heart disease. He was from New :
JSedfnrd. and formei ly commanded the whalesbip Joh n j
Jljwland. His ago was 42. j
The weather has been oppressively warm dur
ing the past few days, the thermometer at sunrise
standing at 7-V, and at noon ranging from 83 to
W. With the beat and dust of summer increasing
daily, those are fortunate who can obtain leave of
aSsence" to rusticate on the other islands or in any
rural retreat, and learn from experience what has

Hawaiian Inii:penuk.nce Day. A preliminary
meeting wis held on Tuesday evening at S.nitb's
Church to take measures to celebrate the coming
81st. Committees, embracing natives and foreigners,
were appointed, and a programme is to be prepared
and submitted to an adjourned meeting, which will
take place on Friday evening. ..-
2r The brig JlIornin Star is looked for froinT
the Caroline group in all August. On her return,
we understand bhe will be immediately dispatched to
the Marquesas, to eirry supplies to the Hawaiian
missionaries stationed iu that group.
The attention of Planters is called to the
sugar mills and engines shortly to arrive from
England by the- Domitila, which will be due in all
August. See advertisement.

Francisco early in July. She may be looked for the
latter part of next week, and will probably bring a

It was gratifying to one who has witnessed the de
cline of trade in our little seaport towns, to take an
occasional tout through the country proper, to
mark the growiog importance of the interior of
Hawaii neu It would seem that some mighty en
chanter, (ome Genii of the land, new risen from the
sleep cf ages, bad extended his magic wand over
niiiintain and valley, stream and plain, calling back
tJ life the soul of enterprise, long dead. Where but
yesterday, all was bare and barren where, in the
checkered soil, nothing but the foot prints of the in
dustry of the former generations was visible the
plow and barrow have been run ; and in many
places we Scd the old land marks obliterated, and
the earth covered as with a green mantle.
To-diy. with an agreeable company of la lies and
gentlemen. I had the pleasure of riding over the lands
tf Waikapu and Waihee. Many were the green
field we passe 1. Cane rows, lofty and low, were re
joicing in the sun; and one could not help rejoicing
with them, while something seemed to say. as they
nodded to the distant sea, "This is tbe salutation
that an iufant Agriculture is now offering to Com
merce." Dm it was tbe Fourth of July, the glorious Fourth !
and when, from afar, we caught sight of tbe Star
Fpangled Ctuuer waving over the Torbert Plantation
at Waihee, high in air. and broad and beautiful, tbe
right was so unexpected and so agreeable that for a
time everything else wa f gotten even Sl'GAR : and
the company were soon filled with as much patriot
ism aa ur horses could well carry.
This evening we paid a visit to the Waikapu Plan
tation. -having received from Messrs. Louzida& Corn
well, i s worthy proprietors, an invitation to attend
an exhibition of fireworks at their place. Here we
fouquite a large company of ladies and gentlemen
aiemb:ed from Wailuku and the immediate neigh
borhood, besides a host of natives who at an early
hour had congregated en masse, to see the sights."
The necessiry preparations bad been made upon the
lawn in front of tbe house. The night was favorably
dark. anJ at a o'clock the exhibition commenced.
It occupied about one hour, during which time there
was a constant succession of cracks, pop-, bangs,
an 1 whizzes. Everything, from the fire-fly cracker to
the comet-tailed rocket, was visible. The ladies en
joyed the fun exceedingly, taking an active part
throughout, and never was vestal virgin more intent
upon preserving the sacred fire," and making
night luminous with Roman candles, blue lights, etc.
To most of the natives it was a new thing," and
jjdjing Troiii the number of saucer-eyed faces exhib
ited tiHn the occasion, it was to them a wonder that
will not soon be forgotten.
After the fire works were done, the company went
in to refreshments ; which were succeeded by na
tional airs upon the piano. While we were express
ing our thanks for the evening's entertainment, so
delightful to all, and were about to depart, the moon,
that had wnitcd the while, like a lady, as she is, rose
up fro:u bemud the summit of Haleakela, and in
fested um seeing the company safely home.

The long expected packet Yankee arrived on
Wednesday morning, 14 days from San Francisco, in
command of Commodore Paty, bringing the Ameri
can mails and dates frora San Francisco to June 30.
The war news by this arrival is very important,
the Rebels having changed the seat of war to Mary
land and Pennsylvania, threatening Washington,
Baltimore and Harrisburg.
We condense the news received, the latest tele
grams from Washington being to the 2Cth of June.
Since that date, to the 20ih, the wires were down
and no news received.
From Lee and Hooker's Annies.
A battle was fought June 9 on the R'ippahan
nock, in which the Federal loss foots up 1)31 killed,
wouudfd and missing. The number killed will not
exceed 100. and less thnu 100 missing. The loss in
horses amounts to 1,51 head. The rebel loss, as
near as ascertained, amounts to 1,200 killed and
wounded. 20C piisoners, and their loss in boiees is
j in proportion.
llKAIiQL'ARTKCS OF THE ABMY OF THE PoTOMAC,
June 15. This morning we started, and to night the
Whole country south of the Occoquan was left to the
enemy. It is reported that the enemy have appeared
at 15 rook's Station, five miles from the Occoquan
road, and will undoubtedly follow us closely. Gen.
Hooker is hastening with his entire army to the de
fense of Washington, and wid re-occupy the position
of Lest ad vantage to defeat the plans of Lee. Lee
undoubtedly has an immense force between Warren-
ton ami Culpepper. Tho e left at Fredericksburg,
numbering 20,000, will probably be added to that
army as m.on as possible
Ntw York, June 10. Information reached this
ci'y yesterd-iy, from Washington, that Lee's army,
iiO.OOO strong, was on this side of the R-tppahanuock,
marching northward. Hooker's army was hastening
north to prevent the rebel advance. Lee, betore the
close of lu9t week, crossed by the fords above Fred
ericksburg, and was apparently pushing for the
Orange and Alexandria railroad. Dy Fr day.
Hooker's whole army was on its norlhwaid march.
All our coiii missary stores have been embarked from
Aquia Creek . Jiee has been joined by large detach
ments from North Carolina and the Biackwater, and
ell bis cavalry have been massed ou the north fork of
the Rippahanneck. LongMreet's corps, lately at
Culpepper, h is doubtless been joined to Lee. Hook
er's force cannot be infetior to Lee's. Our army
has recently been heavily reiulorced from the Nanse
mond, the Penin-ula and elsewhere. No official or
semi-otfici-il indications of these movements have
been received from Washington, and the Times says
these accounts have- been obtained from other sources,
but there seems to be an agreement that our army
and that of the rebels are both on the move so closely
together they can hardly avoid a collision soon.
The Herald eays, editorially, that it is evident
that an active campaign is now in operation on the
Rippahannock. Harper's Ferry, the Shenandoah
Vtny uJ he upper fords of the Potomac, are the
points indicated by recent rebel movements. Our
army has also changed its base of supplies, they
having been transferred from Aquia Creek to Alex
andria. Philadelphia, June 18 The Baltimore Clipper
of last evening says: We Ieain from the head
quarters of Gen. Shenck that the rebels invested
Harper.s Ferry on the ICth, and attempted to sur-pri-e
Gen. Tyler. The latter retired to Maryland
Heights-, and shelled the rebels, compelling them to
evacuate the Ferry. The rebels then retired to
Williamsport. Gen. Tyler then recrossed and occu
pied his former position. The rebels tore up the
railroad aud damaged the canal. Travel has been
resumed between Hirper's Ferry and Baltimore.
The Baltimore American eays : The rebels were
driven from Frederick by a detachment of Regular
Cavalry from Washington. Alter a brief skirmish
in the streets, they pursued them until they crossed
South Mountain. The recruits gathered by the
rebels are left behind in the pauio. Information
from Maryland Heights, says the rebels are in small
force in the mouutaius, but have made no attempt to
advauce on the post. Harper's Ferry is still in our
possession, the bridges being fully protected. Nearly
the whole of their force is at Little Antietam. The
American also snys : We have information, this
morning, that the whole line of the Potomac, on the
Virginia side of the river, up and beyond Leisburg,
yesterday, was iu possession of tiie Federals, and a
large force is occupying that town.
A letter from Bull Run, Va., says the army of the
Potomac (Hooker's) is now ou and near the Bull Run
The Times" special telegram says : Two deserters
from Stuirt's Cavalry, say that Stuart has 12,000
men at Warrcmcn, and that Loe's army is massed
in the Shenandoah Valley between Front Riyal and
Winchester, numbering about 'JJ.000. They also
siy that Lee's whole army arc preparing to turn
Hooker's right fl ink, and cross into Maryland.
The Herald's Washington telegram says : From
rebel sources the following has Wen learned, but we
don't know what value may be attached to it ; but
comparing it with what symypithizers hive mis
trustingly whispered from time to time for the week
f.ast. Lee's army, numl ering 'JC.003 men, h:is been
divided into three parts ; one started, six days an,
from Gordonsville for F irkersbure, Va. ; another
left Culpepper Court House, to proceed by the way
of Grafton o Wheeling and Pittstmrg, with instruc
tions that after occupying the latter place, to unite
with the first and proceed through Ohio to Kentucky.
The third was to proceed by way of Winchester and
Hirper's Ferry into Maryland an i Pennsylvania,
towards Harrisburg or Baltimore, with the view to
make a diversion to occupy the attention of the Fed
eral Army of the East.
New Yoke, June 24 The Hera Id's special tele
gram of last night says the President has been en
paged nearly all dy with Generals Hooker and
Halleck and the Secretary of War. Lee's forces are
evidenly on the line along the valley of Virginia be
tween Gordonsville and the upper Potomac.
The Rebel Knid in Pennsylvania.
About the 15th of June, the rebel infantry and
cavalry under G"ti. Ewell. some 23.000 strong, in
vaded Maryland and at latest dates were moving on
Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania. The fol- j
lowing are the latest advices : 1
Hahrisbchg. June 24. The city has been in a j
high state of excitement all day. The news from the ;
valley shows that the rebels are rapidly advancing in i
this direction in strong force. No troops would be
likely to venture so fir from their base of operations '
into the enemy's country without a force sufficient j
to act on tbe offensive. So far no opposition has j
been made to their movements. The rebels are now i
twelve miles from Carlisle, advancing. Gen. Couch, ;
commanding the forces in the valley, will probably ;
give them battle at that point. The rebels, no doubt, ,
will appear in front of that town to morrow. Oar j
cavalry, who fell back as the rebels advanced, have j
been unable to discover any infantry as yet, but :
iLere is no doubt a strong force in supporting distance. :
McConnelsbcpo, Pa , June 24 Business is at a I
9tand still and the farmers being obliged to keep !
their horses concealed iu the mountains, the prospects
c f reaping the coming harvest are very discouraging.
The rebels are overrunning Franklin county. Two
rebel deserters from a North Carolina regimeut, be
longing to Ewell's Corps, came into our lines this
morning, and report that the whole of that cm m ind
er's force is now in Pennsylvania. Tbe rebels are in
force at Mercersburg, and have driven in our pickets
on this side of the town. At four this afternoon, the
rebel infantry was repotted as coming up the moun
tains from Mercersburg in force. The roads are
blockaded, but poorly supported by troops.
New Yobk, JuDe 25tb. A Harrisburg dispatch
to the 11-rai l last night, states that great alarm
prevails there. The opinion of Gens. Franklin and
Couch, is that the rebels are now advancing with
seiious intentions. In Harrisburg every preparation
has been made to receive them. Judge Whitmore,
whose farm wa? occupied at Greencasile, counted
eighteen pieces of artillery, and uumbered the column
at thirty thousand.
A dispatch dated Gleason's Station, five miles
from Carlisle, states that our forces evacuated Ship
pensburg at 10 o'clock, the enemy charging into the
town, and firiug 9ome volleys, but no one was hurt.
The rebels say they will be into Carlisle on Thursday.
The rebel cavalry went into Fayetteville last evening.
The rebels take all the hats, watches and money
from persons, and plunder private property. Rebel
pickets are reported at Leechburg to-day. Another
dispatch from Harrisburg says : The rebels are wuh
in twenty miles of Harrisburg. The enemy's column
baited eight miles the other side of Carlisle. The
authorities are in telegraphic communication with
tha garrison stationed two miles from the rebel
rickets. Their hue, to night, is very strong, and
the result to-morrow is looked forward to with much
anxiety. A battle will, undoubtedly, be fought, or
the place be evacuated before to-morrow night.
Everythingr is quiet in the neighborhood of Gettys
burg and II mover Junction.
The Times'" special telegram last night eays: In
formation received to day renders it nearly positive
that the whole of Ewell's corps has been transferred
info Maryland. This corps numbers about 23,000.
Stuart's cavalry range up and down the valley, un
der the eastern shadows of the Biue Ridge. Pleas
anton keeps a sharp lookout for him, and slight
skirmishes occur 'aily.
Frederick, Md., June 24. There is no longer
any doubt that the rebels are iu strong force this
side of the Potomac, and marching into Pennusylva
nia. Refugees who arrived here this evening from
the rear of the Pennsylvania line, state that this
morning, at 9 o'clock. Eirly's division of Ewell's
Corps passed through Smithsburg, on their way to
Chatr.bersburg. They had with them sixteen pieces
of artillery, two regiments of Cavalry aud eleven of
Infantry, in all about 8.0(H) men. Gen. Rhodes
division took the Greencustle road from Hagerstown.
The third division of the enemy is reported advancing
upon Mercersburg from the direction of Hancock.
Ewell commands iu person; he was in Hagerstown
The rebel army is accompanied by an immense
wagon train, which would iudicate the movement to
be more for the purpose of plunder than anything
j else. I he rebels evacuated South Mountain yester
day, taking the road towards Greencastle. Orders
have been issued by the rebel commanders to respect
private property in Maryland, but when they arrive
in Pennsylvania, they shall have full license to plun
der and devastate. The rebel officers proclaim it is
their intention to march, first upon Harrisburg aud
then upon Philadelphia. The unorganized and in
experienced militia, assembled for the defence of the
State, they cay, will form no barrier to their march
through the State.
Vicksburg papers of June 13th have been brought
into our lines. The main articles are quite despon
dent in tone; but there is nothing in them which
gives even a hint as to the quantity of ammunition
and provisions on band. It is plainly stated, how
ever, that there is much suffering from lack of medi
cines and other sanitary stores. All the citizens
live in caves dug in the ground, and all armed forces
are continually in the trenches. The papers state
that, so long as there is any hope from without, the
garrison will not surrender.
Iutelliaence has been received from hendquarters.
Walnut Hills, near Vicksburg, to June 13, which
says the enemy's batteries are almost silent on all
sides. Only a few riflemen ate firing at our sappers,
and the bombardment continues vigorously.
General Grant has telegraphed to headquarters the
following, dated rear of Vicksburg, June 18th :
Everything is progressing well here. Johnston's
force is all at Yazoo City, Clinton and Brownsville,
reported to be ou shott rations. The health aud
condition of our troops is excellent."
Cairo, June 23d. The steamer Luminary, from
Memphis the 21st, brings official reports from Gen.
Grant to the 18th. Everything at Vicksburg was
progressing finely. The enemy's fire continued, but
accomplished nothing. Colonel Memer, in command
at Miliken's Bend, made an expedition to Richmond,
La., on the 16th, driving the rebels froiii that section,
burning the city, and bringing the women and chil
dren to Miliken's Bend. The expedition consisted of
2,300 men. They drove 3,500 rebels out of the place.
Our loss was very small. It is stated that the rebels
carried a black flag, with a skull and cross bones, in
their recent attack on Miliken's Bend. Johnston's
forces are moving towards Yazoo City, but Grant is
ready for him. The rebels still continue to harass
the railroad and telegraph between that point and
Cairo, June 24. News from Memphis to the 221
has been received. Official advices frora Geueral
Grant, to noon of the l'Jth, report that some advan
tage had been gained by our forces on the lKth, and
the siege was progressing satisfactorily. Major Gen.
McClernand had been removed from the command
of the Thirteenth Army Corps, by General Grant,
and General Ord assigned to that command. The
total casualties of McClernand's corps in the cam
paign, thus fir, are 3.956. Gen. Blair's division

amount of salt, sugar, flour and meal, with one salt
petre works, with other stores, were destroyed.
From Hunks Army.
New Orleans correspondence per steamer Locust
roint states thnt our siege batteries have been
opened on Port Hudson, and a continuous rain of
shot and shell is being poured into the enemy's works.
Several buildings, supposed to coutain coinmissary
stores were destroyed. The rebels are known to be
suffering greatly in killed and wounded. An expe
dition had driven away a force of rebels collected at
Clinton. Deserters coming iuto our lines report the
rebel strength at least 10.000, well clothed, but suf
fering fo food. Twenty-five or thirty of our men
are daily added to the list of killed and wounded by
the enemy's sharpshooters.

Dispatches from General Bunks have been received
at the War Department, to the effect tha' on baviug
placed his batteries within three hundred and fifty
yards of the rebel works at Port Hudson, and after a

Capture of the City or Mexico.
By tbe arrival of the steamship Golden Aqe last
evening, we leirn that official news of the capture of
the city of Mexico by the French on the 1st of June
bad been received at Acapulco. After the accounts
we h ive received of the extraordinary preparations
made by the Mexicans to resist the progress of the
French afmy all along the route from Puebla
to the city, we read the closing words of the report
no resistance being offered by the Mexicans"
with some surprise. S. F. Call, June 20.

U. S. Government Incomk. Three million dollars
a day is a very handsome income for any government
to receive. It one half of the amount is borrowed,
it shows that the government has ability to borrow
money, even if it is less earnest than it should be in
prosecuting the war.

Parties in the South. An intelligent gentleman,
a graduate of the University of Virginia, und a law
yer by profession, says that there were three parties
in the South. Oue party a considerable party,"
to quote his own language is in favor of the old
Uuiou upon any terms. Another party is in favor
of the old Union, with a guaranty for what they con
eider their rights in regard to slavery. The third,
and the most numerous and powerful, being sustained
by the Government and all its iufluence, is utterly
opposed to any union with thi North, and will agree
to nothing less than absolute Southern independence.
Remains of Gigantic Animals Discovered in Ice.
Kussinu geologists are making preparations to
promote the further discovery of congealed remains
of mammoth animals in Siberia. It is stated that
during the last two centuries at least 20,000 mam
moths, and probably twice and thrice that number,
have been washed out of the ice and soil in which
they were embedded by the action of spring floods.
The tusks only, have been preserved, from their com
mercial value as ivory. An effort is now to be made'
for tbe discovery and preservation of one of these
carcasses as perfect and entire as possible, as it is
considered that a microscopic investigation of the
contents of its stomach might throw a wonderful
light on a host of geological aud physiological
Curious Confession of a " Knight of the Golden
Cross." The Philadelphia Inquirer states that a
respectable man who lately died at Billsburg, Pa.,
confessed before dying that he was a Knight of the
Golden Circle; that regular communication was car
lied ou between the headq iarters of the 44 Knights"
and the cabinet of Jeff. Davis. That he was cogui
zant that the rebel War Departmeut had arranged
with the Knights to evacuate Richmond for the
purpose of drawing the Federal force that far South,
and while their attention was there engrossed the
rebel army, by a quick fl ink movement, would de
scend in full force upon Washington, and, aided by
a general uprising of the Knights in Pennsylvania
and other Northern States, capture the city and seize
upon the government by force.
The First Printed Book. It is a remarkable and
most interesting fact, that the very first use to which
the discovery of printiug was applied, was the pro
duction of the Bible. This was accomplished at
Mentz, between the years of 1450 and 1455. Gut-
tenberg was the inventor of the art, a goldsmith
furnished the necessary f.jnds. This Bible was in
two folio volumes, which have been justly praised for
the strength and beauty of the paper, the exactness
of tbe register, and the lustre of the ink. The Work
contained twelve buudred pages and being the first
ever printed, of course involved a long period of
time and an immense amount of mental, manual,
and mechanical labor; and yet for a long time period
after it had been furnished and offered for sale, not
a single human beiug, save the artists themselves,
knew bow it bad been accomplished.

The Japan. The Manchester Guardian has tbe
following . A short time since four men, who were
quartermasters on board the Great Eastern, and
who had been gunners in the British navy, left the
6hip and joined the vessel known as the Japan, which'
was fitticg out at Greenock, for China and other
eastern ports. More recently the quartermasters
came to Liverpool, and shipped about 100 men.
Some of the men got iutoxicated, and the next day,
having learned some secrets from an indiscreet quar
termaster, they paid a visit to Mr. Dudley, the
Americau consul, and told him that they had been
shipped for service on board the Japan, a vessel fit
ted out to burn, sink and destroy federal vessels.
Mr. Dudley at once telegraphed to Mr. Adams, the
American minister at Loudon, who promptly called
upon Karl Russell, and the latter telegraphed to the
collector of customs at Liverpool to step the Japan.
The collector at once locked into the bill of entry,
but nothing could be seen of the Japan there. The
collector then, thinking that she might soon enter the
river, ordered four revenue gigs to cruise up and
down, and stop her as soon as shtfmade ber appear
ance. No Japan, however, turned up, and the col
lector then telegraphed to Earl Russell that he must
have been misiuformed. On further investigation it
was found that Mr. Dudley bad forgotten to state
that the Japan was at Greenock. However, when
this became kuown, the orders of the government
were immediately telegraphed to Greenock, but the
Japan, re-named the Virginia, bad sailed for an un
