Something about Vessels.
Resuming my correspondence from my last of
25th ult., per Princess, which lef t us on Thanks
giving Day, I now advise the arrival of the
Comet, A. A. Eldridge, and JlalUe Jackson, all
from your port, and all entering our harbor
within a few days of each other. The A. A. E.
having been placed ou the berth by Mesesra. C.
W. Brooks & Co. for Honolulu, has had quick
dispatch. She has on board flour, &c, and what
you appear tj be greatly in want of at Honolulu,
5,000 in treasure. This house has also laid on
the llallic Jackson for the same port, to load im
mediately. The Comet will get away about the
20th. The following vessels arc to have dispatch
for China, and may stop en route at your port :
V it alia on the 26th, for Hongkong, to be fol
lowed probably by the Dcrly, Elerhard, and
Clara R. Saiil. The 1. A. Eld ridge has been'
living about the Pacific Ocean the 'last six months
like a hot potatoe in the mouth of a hungry
Irishman," having taken in ant discharged eix
cargoes during that short period. - Bennett, how
ever, got his training in the Regular Dispatch
Line of Honolulu and Sun Francesco Packets,'
and old habits will cling to a jerKn like Dejani
ra's present of the robe of Nessus to Hercules.
(I believe my comparison is classically correct ;
if not, make it so, for I have no Lenipriere near by
for reference. only know the fac from experi
ence. The three ancient worthies lad however all
their fingers in the pie, but whi;h was the pie
sened one I tliareuieiubur, but I tlink it was old
Ilerk" that got played out. J On the 23d
of September, 1 notice that the polphin, Capt.
Clark, sailed from Pernambuco "'or Honolulu,
with the cargo of the Sam"! Robertson from New
Bedford. The whalers have abc j.t all left our
port. The Nuera Italia arrived t. Jay with 2070
bags Rio Coffee, part of the Casai '. cargo left at
that port from Rio. ;
Men of War.
The Narraganselt and Lancaster have left our
harbor, the latter on a cruise, tffa former for a
pirate. Although both the Cotbnist and the
Chronicle deny the truth of an steps having
been taken in Victoria for the fitting oat of a
privateer, yet the United States tieam gunboat
Narragansett, commanded by Captain Wood
worth, has left our port ostensibly- for a cruise,
but in reality to proceed to Pti2t Sound, and
watch the movements of a vessel which is being
fitted out by cur neutral neighliorti in that place.
The Narragansett curries four sixty-Tour pounders,
and one thiitecn-inch gun amidships, and will
give a good account of herself should she fall in
with any pirates. All 1 can eay is, if Stlioi
"Woodworth meets one of the hign toned gentle
men, there will be some fun afloat. The Russian
men-of-war are yet here, and it is a good thing
for the cracker bakers, if for nolxdy else. The
commercial reporter of the DulUlin thus dis
- It s 9iid of the Ranbin war fleet visiting nor waters that
the average expenditure fur Mores, outfits, etc., will approximate
iu,000 each vessel. Our bakers are now executing a large or
ir U T Bread for the Ku.siaii, (before noticed in our columns,)
and were U not for that contract nearly every Hard Bread baker
ia town wr aid have been obliged to stop wi rl during the month
of Xoveroht-r simply for the Uck of demand."
The New York papers are filled with reports
cf the courtesies shown our hyperborean gues.
Harper's Illustrated Weekly is filled with pic
tun's of frenzied dancers, waltzing, polking, and
all that sort of thing, very pleasant to conteni
j late in a picture, but excessively warm to experi
etiofin reality. 1 suppose it is all right ; but
here is what is t-aid by some old cvnical bachelor
lat 40, an age when one is apt to look at mo
tives. As 1 am only 22, I don't endorse, by any
means, what is advanced by the ungallant writer.
If true, however, the shoe will tit as well in
Honolulu as in New York or San Francisco.
"The ladies cf New York seem to fancy the Russians Im
mensely, hot so much on account of tlwir ersonal beauty, as
y reason of thir gallantry and rk ill in payinjt compliments.
There is no drny'.r.g that our icaidiuavian friends have a hy-prrtK-ran
a.'prct, ncd show to disadvantage in photographs,
l.ut then thry are so gentiemai ly 'tie l.nlks say. Ursids
there are Impend of palaces in Kuia ahich are waiting fir
cuautesse. duchesses, etc., and tuost of the officers of the Czar's
Bret are VI to he unmarried men. Of course, no American
rirl would be influenced by mercitiary or nm hit ions considera
tions in so holy a thine; as marriage ; but the patriotism of our
Jouug ladies might hare some effect toward inducing them to
become Russian peeresses in the hoe that in some crisis of th
future th'y might favorably influence the relations of the two
Without prelude, I oBer the tubjoined:
Scgar. At auction McRuer it Merrill sold
largely of Hawaiian Sugar, received per Cornet.
The prices realized for the better grades were up
to the full market value; those sold at GJeTc
were of very inferior quality, of which latter
only a portion of the offerings was sold. The
filowing is the list of prices obtained : Terms
Under $500, cash ; over 500, payable 12th

Molasses. Small stock, but sells slowly. Quo
tations, ordinary, 20c ; best quality, 20c per gall.
Corrxz Has experienced the effects of the
Urge importations and 23c is quotable for Ha
waiian. Prix. The sales comprise all the late receipts
per Comet and Hallie Jackson, say 380 bales,
chiefly at 20c.
Mr. Andrew Potter came into my ofSce to-day
Q great trepidation. I asked him what ailed
him. thinking perhaps he might have met a
fepimual affinity. Nothing of greater conse
quence than this," he replied, I have just come
from Schriebtr's, where 1 have been to buy a bale
of pulu, and the price is 25c per lb." I offered
to lend him, if he was broke, but he said he could
etand the pretw, and I suppose 25c per lb. is the
quotation for a single bale.
Fixers. In bond. 15c per lb. and wanted.
Peptiao Laau is in demand.
Rick. The market is bare of Hawaiian clean
ed, and 8c9c, could be obtained for a lot. In
l-hina, fur stocks have heij again incrMil ;
they are now estimated at upwards of 20,000,000
Salt. The market is greatly depressed. Coarse,
$10 50 per ton.
Here is an item for you, in connection with
this market report. You are about to have a
rival in sugar producing, so look out for your
laurels, O ye of Lahaina, Waikapu. Wailuku,
Makawao, Ulupalakua, Koloa and Princeville,
not forgetting Hawaii.
Isdcstrial KxTERPkuc is thk Socth Pit inc. The schooner
Sarah, which chaired on Friday for Tahiti, is completely loaded
with sujrar mill and cotton machinery for a company who are
about to engage in the cultivation of those staples in Tahiti.
Ve learn that this company, whose head oQce is in Paris, has
obtained a grant of about lO.OoO acres of arable land on the
southeast side of the Ulaud of TabiU from the French Govern
ment, an 1 that it is the company's intention to plant the whole
of it with sugar and cotton. For labor it is intended to bring a
force of from 300 to COO natives from some of the semi-savage
ulaods which lie in the direction of New CaleJonia. 1'rior to
the war with the French in 18M, Tahiti had begun to produce
considerable sugar, as high as i00 tons having been exported in
one year. The war, however, destroyed the plantations which
could not be worked from tack of labor. From that time to the
present the island has had to import most of the suar required
for its own consumption. The result of thiv effort, if successful,
will doubtless te the means of making a large increase in the
exports of Tahiti, whirh now only consists of oranges, bicht la
mert pearl shell and a few oilier articles of trifling importance.
There is a report fast obtaining foot-hold among
many here that there is to be a great endeavor
made in the Legislature, the present session, to
pass an act, whereby U. S. Legal Tenders shall
paa aa currency here, as at the East. Gov. Stan
ford recommended it in his valedictory speech,
and to-day I see by the legislative proceedings at
Sacramento, that Ilittell introduced two bills
making greenbacks receivable and payable for
public dues. ' He stated that he does not favor
their passage, but wants the subject brought up
at as early a day as possible, so that the people
who are most interested can have time bi express
The price of Legal Tenders to-day at the first
Board, was G9c. bid, TOc. asked. The Bulletin
telegram reports gold in New York to-day at 150
and a shade easier. The susceptibility of gold to
even the lightett impression or report may be
seen by the following extract, taken from the
commercial column of the New York Journal of
Commerce of November 14th :
The Joli Market bas been Bomewbt exercised by the un
certainty in regard to the movements of Messrs. H-Imont 4- Co.,
ageuts of the K'Khnchilils in this couutry. Tin firm hold here
about $3,000,04.0 of Uold, which they have arcumuhiU-d to meet
the requirements of their business. W ithin two days about
$1,000,000 or $1,200,000 of Ibis Uold have I ten drawn out of
bank, irearaury to sLipiuent. It was understood that it was
going to Mexico, probably to meet the wants of the French t?ov
ernment. The Fiench Admiral was applied to, as we under
stand, to take it, but as his vessel is not a common carrier he
o ul.l not do it, except by order of the French MinisU-r. This
ordi-r had not been received up to htet dates md it may le
that the shipment will lie made via Havana. The transaction
is perfectly legitimate in itself ; but it excites so in? attention iu
cousequence of the political complications in Mexico, and the
unwillingness which many f.-el to recognize anything as legiti
mate which aids the Mexican invasion. It may turn out, how
ever, that the French Government have no diivct interest in the
matter, and that it is merely a round of exchange growing out
of the large expenses in or near the (iulf, on European account.''
I send you with this letter, a synopsis of the
reports of the Secretaries of the "Treasury and
Navy, by the former of which it will Ihj seen that
no more legal Tenders are to be issued, and that
he asks for power to make a loan of 300 millions
for the coming year's expenses. We arc com
ing, Uncle Abraham, 800,000,000 more," Billy
Birch can sing no more.
The President's Message
goes to the Islands by this opportunity. It was de
livered on the lOib (?) and telegraphed in 6 hours
to the .ilia. I read it in that paper at my breakfast
table on the 11th, what do jou eay to that fact? I
make no comments upon it, as it is ' sound on the
goose," you bet !
Soldiers Belief Fund and New Church.
I take the following items from a morning paper :
Soldi em' Relief Fcnd. The Committee having charge of
the Sanitary Commission's interests in California, remitted by
the steamer of Saturday to the Sanitary Committee at the East,
$50,000. The President of the Commission, the Itev. II. W.
liellows, was advUed by telegraph of the shipment, and also
assured by the Chairman and Treasurer of our Committee,
that San Francisco would furnish $200,000 during the year
1804, while the State would make up another $100,000, or
$:S00,0O0 in all, to be paid in New York in monthly instalments.
The $50,000 sent on Saturday was for the mouths of January
Tnit LiBxiM Street Phksbttekiax Chtroh. The Trustees
of this Church (Rev. Mr. trong,s) have purchased a lot on
!arkin street, near Pacific, and have contracted for the erection
of a house, winch is to be seventy feet by forty two, and to cost
$7,950, !esidcs $1,000 paid for the lot. It will seat four hun
dred persons, and is intended to be the most substantially
constructed wooden church on this coast.
The Comparative Prosperity cf the North.
While reflecting on the starvation talk of Southern
editors, it is itnposfible to avoid comparing the
thriftiuess and prosperity cf the North iu the midst
cf the war. It is quite true that the North feels the
war. The thousands of her gallant sons who have
met untimely graves on the Southern soil, and the
teu thousand cripples, and disabled soldiers, now in
the North, do come home to the hearth stones of the
people. High prices for everything, an inflated cur
rency, and the absence of gold in commercial trans
actions, all remind us of the war. Yet the whole
coon try seems prosperous. In the Eastern States all
kinds of manufacturing establishments are busy;
everybody who is abla and willing can obtain em
ployment, of both sexes. The cities ate as lively as
ever and the women of New York never dressed
gayer, nor did Dioadway ever seem finer than just
now. Rents are high, and yet the complaint is
echoed from Portland to Philadelphia, and from
Philadelphia to St. Louis, that there is a scarcity of
dwellings. New buildings to supply this demand
are going up in every city. All the hotels, every
where, are doing well in ppite cf the high prices. In
the West, the draft on the agriculturist for the
army, bns created a demand for farm bands greater
than the supply. Hence, wages have advanoed, and
mechanics have never been so well paid as now.
This advance has overcome the high prices and
equalized the prosperity of the whole country. These
are preguant facts, and taken in connection with the
outpouring of money for 5-20 bonds, the spectacle
mtit convince all intelligent Europeans that the
North is able to continue the war indefinitely without
eerious trouble. The poor are well taken care of,
and benevolent enterprises are nobly sustained".
Instead cf starvation, there is an abundance cf every
thing, and it is the most common remark of St.
Louisans traveling hence to New York, that ccbody
could tell a war was in progress. St. Louis Cor. of
Tboujjh the mill of Go.1 prirtfl slowly,
Tet they grind exceeding small.
Thouzn with patience he stauds wading,
With exactness crinJs he all."
Rebuke to Copperheadism.
Some person has been feuding the Hon. D. L.
Gregg, late U. S. Commissioner at the Sandwich
Islands, and now practicing law at Carson City iu
Nevada Territory, a number of Copperhead papers.
That geutleinan defines his position on the Union
question as follows. I do not know as anything cau
be more flat footed. This, too, from one of the
warmest partisans of a former democratic adminis
tration, is worthy of record :
My political positiou has always been in favor of the Union,
and all the war measures of the administration necessary to
maintain it. In lime of war, there is no propriety in party
diversions and cpjsrrels, which may have even a remote chance
of strengthening the hands of the enemy. lWore the lines of
the foe, unity ought to be the watchword, and the man who can
find it in his heart to raise the cry of discord or say a word to
hold back the avenging hand of the supreme power of the tJov
ernment auaiust the conspirators who threaten it, stands no
longer worthy to bear the proud distinction of American
Those are exactly the sentiments of Our Own."
You will notice by the late telegrams that Fernando
Wood is at his old game again in the house.
Among the obituaries of the past three weeks, I
notice the following :
In this city, Dee. 10th. Martha Ann, wife of Capt. James
Daly, a native of Plymouth, Ma., aged 43 years and 4 days.
In this city, December ISth, of disease of the heart, Edward
A. Kagsda'.e of Honolulu, purser of bark Comet.
The former was well known in Honolulu, as Mrs.
Wm. Paty ; and who among the young uieo of Honolu.u
is there who does not know the latter. Intimately
acquainted with him from business relations, as an
employe of the mercantile houses who have for the
past 10 years owned the vessels of Honolulu and Sau
Francisco line of packets, I have had dealings with
the subject of my notice in every capacity, from the
humble cabiu boy to the advanced and confidentially
trusted purser aud business representative of Capt.
James Smith of the Comet. How willingly and
truthfully can I bear witness to his fidelity and
kindness, which shunned observation, for literally he
"Good by stealth and blushed to find it fime."
Dy many youo and generous hearts, will his
departure be mourued, bet by another, who has
been to him as a father, tmd towards whom he acted
as no son could surpass in filial devotion aud alTec
rion alas, my feeble pen will not attempt to portray
the depth of his aoguish. Farewell, Ned ! May
the turf grow green above thee, and the remembrance
of thy kindly and generous nature, prompt those of
thy friends who survive thee, to imitate thy example.
Farewell ! !
The A. A. Eldrige takes down as passengers,
former residents of Honolulu, who have wandered
East and West" since leaviug their Island home.
The Rev. Dr. Gulick, J. Porter Green, Esq w and
Mi.-s Mary Green. I saw Dr. Gulick to-day, aud he
looks improved by his residenca in the bracing cli
mate of our Golden State. I learn that the Hon. D
L. Gregg has entered upon n flourishing law business
at Carson City. N. T. Letters received from R. A.
S. Wood, superintendent of the Bnji California Mine,
in Lower California, state that he is much pleased
with the prospects there, and fiuds the rock he is
getting out much richer than that he worked at
Kapeua falls, say 200 per ton. Prendergast aud
other civil engineers of Honolulu woul 1 find a good
field there for their energies. I notice the marriage
of Mrs. C. Coady in the papers to "Major Haslocher,
of His Hawaiian Majesty's Forces. The appointment
of Hon. C. Gordon Hopkins to the post of Minister
of Finanee at the Islands, had no immediate effect
upon the price of gold, susceptible as that article is
to outside influences. I am glad Hopkins has got '
the billet, lor I kuow of no one, who can draw .
$4,000 per annum with more gentlemanly grace,
and do less for the money than Don Carlos. The
income of the Gould & Curry last year was Slt250,
000, only four times as much as the revenue of the
Sandwich Islands, and yet they pay Charley Strong
about 812,000 per annum, and find him free quar
ters and table money. Ben. Durham says he has a
head ache to-day and can't write his friends, and
Nat. Ingols informs me you hear regularly from
him; bo, as the Eldrige tails in about an hour, I
merely add null ced, or, classically speaking, for I
am a classical ' cuss," Jam Satis.
