Qoite a rturr.tcr of Tcs?ela were expected to

By pris-nfe adticea we learn that the Russian Admi
ral ha 1 received telegrams from Xew York, ordering
one of the corvettes in San Francisc-i to be sent with
all possible diratch to Shanghac. S'le was taking in
coal cn the 25th of December, and weald sail by the
first of January. She may touch a this port daring
the corning wetk for coal, though it is not certain.
The bark Young Hector would leave early in Janu
ary fr thia port, if not sold. The clipper ship
Derby wonld leave from the 5th to the 10th, and the
clipper George L.. rmloJy, from the loth to the

though she had not arrived over at the latest dates,
would probably leave about the same time with the

Besides these vessel, sure to touch here, the barks
San Francisco. Vilatitt, Jngtbcrz, and Lizzie,
were all up for China ports, but there is do cettainty
of their stopping here.

THURSDAY, J AS VARY 14.
The I -"ore lira IVv.
JIarely I.ute we received for one i..ue of our I
J jap-r, sxj lrge and interesting an amount offor
: -igi new u-s that which has come t hand by
the thrte arrivals since our last iue. The d ite
embrace an entire month, fruiii the 20th of No
vember to the 25th of December. Wars and ru
mors of wars are increainr in every part of the
j world, and iti eema nut unlikely, judging from
I Fent indications, that the year 104 will .tand
as one of the HK-t bloody on record. Ihe war
cry has already been sounded in CJ-.rmany anj
Denmark, and the clash of arms haa probably
ere this begun. With war between these nationa
and the revolution in Poland, it seems hardly
possible that Russia. France and England will
escape being drawn into the maelstrom and thus
all Kuroje hi set in a blaze. Desidea this im
pending trouble in Europe, we have the civil war
in America, the French war with Mexico, the
trouble between foreign nation? and Japan, and
by the last advices received, a new reljellion has
broken out in India. All these troubles in dif
ferent parts of the world may not prove to be so
extensive as now appears probable, yet experi
ence shows that it ia easier lighting the torch of
Te!elliun than extinguishing it.
Turning to the United States we may take a
hasty glance there. The general tenor of the
news from all quarters, ia decidedly favorable to
the Union cause, to the restoration of peace, and
to the reconstruction of the Union on some plan
not learly developed, but of which the full and
total abolition of slavery will be the chief and
unconditional basi9. In this reconstruction of
the Union, it seems clear that the power of the
slave holders aa a clasa will le entirely crushed,
and that a new order of things will be establish
ed even at the .South.
The proclamation of the President, offering an
amnesty and pardon to all who have been engag
ed in the rebellion excepting the leaders, ia time
ly, and will have a great influence on the masses
at the South, so 8uon as they feel relieved from
the tyranny of the rebel leaders. This procla
mation as well aa the message of the President
will be found in the California weeklies of the
19th of December.
The military position in Virginia api-ears not
to have changed much during December. The
same see-saw mode of warfare which has been a
j-cculiarity of the tactics of that State ever since
the opening of the rebellion, still continues.
One army advances and the other retreats before
it, with various losses in killed and captured.
Then the same programme ia followed by the op
posing army with about the same result. The
two armies appear t be about equal in size, and
tip to the 20th of December, were reported to
have gone, into winter fiuarter."", Lee'i army on
the south side of the liapidan, and Meade'a on
' the north side of tin; same river. But the latest
' advicva by tho Hal lie Jackson, report that Lee
j having been reinforced ly Ijonstrcet'a forces,
; which hud returned from Knoxvillc, had crossed
! the liapidan to attack Mea.de, and that the latter
! was falling back aa nsual towards Washington.
! The fetory of General Averill'a expedition up
the Shenandoah Valley as far aa Salem, which
will be found among the latest au vices by the
, 7ai Jrtcison, forma one of the mot-t brilliant
and (hiring exploit of the war. To under
! stand it better, it should be stated that hia forces
j were stationed at or near Winchester, and that
! proceeding up the valley he passed Staunton and
reached the Virginia and Tennessee railroad at
; Salem, which ia located some forty miles west of
Lynchburg and about one hundred and fifty
milea pouth of Winchester. Thia raid, if the
i facta correspond with hia account, ia hardly lesa
bold and remarkable than the famoua Crierson
raid in Mississippi.
From Charleston we have advices to about the
' 18th of December. (Jilmore continued to bom
I bard the city, sending hia 2(H)-pound shells a dis
! tance ot over four milea from the celebrated
! swamp angels" which he lias planted around
J Cutnming'a Point. The Charleston papers de
cline to state tho amount of damage caused by
I the shelling of the city, but from statements in
' some of the Southern paers, it apt-ears that sev
eral conflagrations have occurred there in consc
rjuence of the bombardment. The reported loss
of the Ironsides ia positively contradicted. It
arose from the fact that one of the iron-clada.
the Ijfhigh which had passed Fort Sumter and
gone up towards the city, got fouled in the ob
struction9 opposite Fort Johnson, and received
considerable damage from that fort. The Iron
sides and two othr veseels went to her relief and
succeeded in rescuing her.
From the West the news is most cheering,
firant at Chattanooga, assisted by Hooker,
Thomas an 1 other well-knawn generals, attack
ed Uragg'a forces before that place on tho 23d
and 24th of November, gaining a most decisive
victory over the rebels, who were pursued by
the Union troops to Dal ton in the State of
Georgia, a distance of over thirty miles from
Chattanooga. A more complete victory by the
Union forces, or n more disastrous defeat, accom
jiunied with a most shameful rout of the rebels,
has not taken place during the war. The con
sequence is, that Bragg lias been dismissed and
General Johnston, formerly at Mobile, placed
in command of hia army.
At Knoxville a victory no lesa important has
been achieved by Burnside and Foster; the result
of which is, that the rebel troops in that neigh
borhood, after a severe loss, stated to' be about
5,000, have been compelled to retire, leaving
the State entirely cleared of rebel troops. The
victory was so great and the result so import
ant, that the President issued a proclamation
desiring public thanks to be given throughout
In Texas, too, the Union cause is sweeping
everything before it, and General Banks' ad
vance through the State is hailed with joy and
acclamation by the loyal people, who appear
to constitute a large majority of the population.
There seems to be but little doubt that thia
State, once rescued from the control of the re
bels, the people themselves will be able to retain
their position as a loyal State, independent of
any outaide aid. The same may be said of
Arkansas, and both these States will undoubt
edly soon adopt measures to return to the Union.
But perhaps the most cheering news, and that
showing the desperation to which the rebel lead
era are driven, ia the despondent tone of the
inewugp of Jeff. Davis to hia rlel enngrew, and
the Litter Fj-tCfhea ;inJ ikbat-.-s in that body.
The foniKT laments the failing cause of the
South, the want of troops anJ tuonuy, the grow
ing debt, and more than all the lota of eyuip;v
thy from the European nations. Altogether it
would appear that the rebel leaders have arrivtd
very close t the ede of the famous "last ditch."
They may manage to keep up their courage u
little longer, but their fate is as certain as that
of the convicted murderer.
From Europe the news, though brief, U ex
tremely interesting, and we L-arn that private
letters received from there f.jreshad jw a gloomy
, pror,ect abead. I here seems but little doubt
, that Denmark Norway 'and Sweden have al
- ready comuienceu war iwi me M.-rman powers,
: the result of which it is impossible at this dis-
tance to anticipate. The speech of the French
Emperor to his legislature is said to be unusu-
ally important and interesting. We do not find
the speech in full, but the following extracts and
remarks which we copy from thaAUa California,
indicate ita tone, and that France, or rather the
Emperor Napoleon, is assuming the position of
dictator of Europeans affairs :
The message of the Emperor Napoleon to the
French Legislative Chambers is regarded as one of
the most extraordinary imperial documents that has
ever been laid before the public. There is a candor
about it which id in striking contrast with the
ambiguous phrases for which throne oratory ia
remarkable. For instance, in the remarks male on
the subject of the invasion of Cochin China and
Mexico, the mai-k is entirely laid aside and the real
objects of French movements in these rJacea boldy
avowed. ' The distant expeditions which have been
the subject," says the Emperor, ' of so much criti
cism, have not been the result of any premeditated
plan ; they have been brought about by the force of
circumstances ; and yet they are cot to be regretted.
How, in fact, could we develop our foreign commerce
if on the one hand we were to relinquisli ull influence
in America ; and if ou the other, in presence of the
vast territory occupied by the Spaniards and the
Dutch, France was to remain alone without posses
sions in the seas of Asia .'
Frcm this it will be seen that the Emperor formal
ly lays nsiJe the character of the M-xJern Don
Quixote traveling Around the world f r the purpose
of succoring and regenerating distressed nationalities.
The hint on the subjt-ct of Fiench infiner.ee in Amer
ica furnishes the key to the Mexican policy. He
wants a position in Asia so as to be on equal footing
witn the bpaniaids and Dutch ; ami the Emperor I
might have ndJed, the English and the Rustians. i
A portion of Cochin China has been seized ; so his j
programme in that quarter has been carried out. I
Ntt so, however, in Ameiica. 'Ihe same argument, !
though not stated of nr.nrsp. nnnlipn liri Tim i
English and the Uu!-siaus have large possessions on
thia continent, and France, according to Napoleon's
ideas, ought to be on equaliiy with them. Will that
end l-e subserved by Iucing ou the shadowy throne of
Mexico an Austrian Prince? The Emperor of the
French seems lo think it will. If Maximilian should
ever assume ihe reins of goveri nient in the neighbor
ing republic he would be, it is true, to all intents
and purposes, nominally a feudatory of France ; but
how h.ng is it likely that he would remain in that
position? His reign in Mexico might Ic shorter
than that of I tut bide. What then would become of
French influence? lie might continue on the throne
for jears by the aid of foreign mercenaries, hut if
France and Austria should lall out, where would
Maximilian be found ? It would seem, then, that
the influence in America, lo secure which Louis
Napoleon has expended so much treasure, is at best i
of a very uncertain character. It is surrouuded !
with menacing contingencies, any one of which would ;
be quite sufficient to destroy it.
It i, however, on tho remarks offered on the Polish !
question that criticism has been piled up in the j
European journals. In the discussion of this branch j
cl the subject Napoleon lets out a httie secret, which
set John Dull to thinking in no pleasant mood. He
The Poliah question needs a fuller explanation.
When the Polish insurrection burst out the govern
ments of France and llussia were on the most friend
ly footing, in nee Ihe conclusion of peace they were
always agreed upon the great European questions,
uud I do not hesitate to declare so. During the war
in Italy, as well as at the time of the annexation of
Savoy, the Emperor gave me his most sincere and
cordial support. This good understanding demanded
forbearance, and it was only the Polish question,
very popular in France, that could induce me not to
hesitate lo compromise one of the first alliances of
nation rebellious m the eyes of liussitt, but, in ours, j
heirs to a right inscribed in histories and in trea- i
So it seems that ever since the Crimean war Louis
Napoleon has been cultivating Russia, while pretend
ing to be the friend of Englaud. It will be seen that
in thia connection the strong word "alliance", ia
used. The revelation must have created no little
sensation in the official circles of bis former ally.
It will be seen by the latest news from Europe,
that the French Government is to send a fleet of
war vessels to the Pacific. The assigned reason
is, to prevent the introduction of guns and inuni-
tiona of war into Mexico ; but another, and not
improbable reason, is to be prepared to meet the
Russian fleet in cuse of war breaking out be
tween those two powers.
The new rebel Vn in India, also reported
among the latest news received, w;s entirely un
looked for, and may give employment to all the
Uritish troops now stationed in that part of the
Fikst Page. On our first page will be found an
exceedingly interesting letter from oir San Francisco
correspondent, whose easy and genial style adds
much to the interest and value of our paper, and
whose happy expressions, bon mots and witticisms,
though often free and lavished without fear or favor,
are none the less enjoyed by all our readers. His in
timate acquaintance with our inlands as well as t lie
Pacific trade generally, for the past twenty years,
gives increased value to bis observations conveyed as
they sometimes may be in a semidudicrons form,
which is often lacking to the inoie stately phraseology
of the model business letter writer. We are glad to
learn that he is prospering in a pecuniary view, and
that he finds bis talents and indefatigable energy a p.
predated and rewarded in a community where these
qualities are a fortune to any man. In this connec
tion we may add, that we are under special obliga
tions to Meters. McRuer and Merrill, and C. W.
Brocks & Co., for courtesies rendered to Our own
Correspondent,' in furnishing him details of mar
kets and other mercantile information not readily
obtained from other sources, which enables him to
give the most correct reports of the San Francisco
market for general reading which have ever yet been
sent us. Mr. J. W. Sullivan, a prince among news
dealers, as well aa their pioneer, baa also our thanks
for late papers and publications furnished to him for
remittance to us.

.OTi:s OF Till-; WKKK.
SrTRLME CuCRT The Court having fiuishel the
foreign caca brought before it at this term, a few
remarks touching upon the ca?es tried, wi!l not be :
oat cf place,
The first case was that of Arthur .MexnJer, ;
fur setting fire to the whaleship Jireh Sicift. When
asked if guilt? or not guilty, he rem trked that they i
had found him out, (referring to the officers and .
crew of the vessel,) so what was the ue of saying
any more. Plea cf guilty wa9 accordingly entered.
Sentenced to five years imprisonment at hard labor. ;
Next Ahoo, a Chinaman, was charged with bur.
g'ary. Plea, not guilty; whereupon the case went j
to trial, and be was found guilty and sentenced to '
five years at bard labor.
The next case was that of James C. King, for
an assault and battery with a dangerous weapon i
upon the person of dpt. Wm. Stott. Plea, not !
guilty. The jury not being able to agree, (eight '
being for conviction and four for acquital, as we I
understand.) on Monday morning the Attorney j
General moved the trial on anew, daring which the i
defence brought new evidence forward. The jury, j
after about an hour's absence, returned with a veri '
diet of guilty, signed by eleven jurors with an ear
nest recommendation of the prisoner to the mercy of j
the Court. Monday at 12 M., the court room was ;
filled with a large audience, it being the hour fixed j
for the sentence of Mr. King. j
The Attorney General remarked, that in moving for sentence t
la this case, he took pleasure ia seconding the. recotntnendiitin !
of the jury, to the extent of suggi-sting to the Court that the im- j
prisomuent might be made nominal and the public tood le there, i
by subserved. With n-gard to the aniouut of the tine he would 1
not say anything that the object of this and all prosecutions I
was to pive the public a sense of security, and to remind all i
persons that the law was supreme, and to that erery one must j
appeal as the rectifier of their private wrong. It has been a ,
long lime since there had been occasion for pro&eculiou for using i
a pistol, ana that it was a hut 'it n.to which young men siue
tiims fall from misjudged notions, and he had but little doubt
that the trial would be a salut-try lesson to all such, and be al
vanWirous to the comoiunity. It appeared from the testi
mony that these parties maintained the relationship of father-in-law
and son-in-law, and undoubtedly the jury had believed
that there were greatly irritating circumstances ; that he
was aware the arraigned has a young family wbich he is eu
deavuring to bring up i:i a resectable manner ; and that a
length ot imprisonment would break up business and only bring
misery to the family, in which Capt. Mott ought to have the
strongest interest ; and he rentured to observe that it was
somewhat of a mitigating circumstance when meu of compara
tively advanced years commence a violent and passionate al
tercation with much younger men, it being und'u'teily the
daty of mature years to set an example of self-restraint.
The Court then proceeded to deliver eentence,
which was, that Mr. King be imprisoned for one day
and paya fine of three huudted dollars.
Concluding we would remark, that the verdict
must strike all, after the mature reflection which the
case demands, as eminently just and calculated to
nip in- the bud the pernicious habit of carrying
j wP"s, and of eugraftiug upon
i 80 prominent in some countries.
us one of the evils
prominent in some countries. Ihe use of deadly
weapons is getting to be of frequent occurrence
among Hawaiians, and we have no doubt that had
the case under consideration beeu allowed to pass un
noticed by the officers of justice, the eifect would
soon Le noticeable, and feel convinced that all law
loving and law abiding people will eudorse the
course of the jury and court.
Election Returns. The reports of the election
for Representatives on the other islands come in
; slowly. Since our last issue we have the report of
the election at Koolauloa on Oahu, where Mr. J. W.
I Mjk tleu a was chosen. The following were the can
' didatea and the votes polled :
J. W. Makalena, ..
ttev. M. Kuie:i, ...
ti. U. Ukeke,
& M. Naukiiwa, ...
From Lahaina we have received the following
returns, the first two gentlemen named having been
chosen. Their platform was free rum distillation and
removal of the antidiquor law. They have made a
elean sweep, and the voice of Lahaina is evidently in
favor of the largest liberty ou the liquor question :
J. W. II. Kuuwahi,.
I. 1). Ihtldwin,
J. 11. Kaihcekai,. . . ,
Kawelo,. ...... ....
...212 Opposition. .

In the Wailuku district Mr. Kepoikai, in favor of
distillation, was elected by a very large majjrity.
The following are the figures :
Xoa Kejtoikai,. . '..
J. W. Alexander,.

V. K. Nuuhiva. . . ,
Iu the lvaanapali district. West Maui, an anti
..'liquor man was chosen, the regular distillation can
didate having received but eight votes. The follow
ing are the votes polled :
J. A. Nahaku, 113 Opposition.
J. II. Moku 47 44 Temperance.
s. v. Kapuie.
21 I ncertain.
2 On the fence.
In Makawao, William Humphreys was elect.!. In
the liana district, Mr. Kahananui was elected. The
votes cast for these candidates, we have not received.
The only returns received up to last evening from
Hawaii, were Irom the Kobala district, in which
James W. Austin, Esq., wa8 choseu by a handsome
majority. The following are the figures :
James W. Austin 325 votes.
Personal. Among the passengers by the Comet
from San Francisco, we welcome back James W.
Austin, E-q., who has been absent from the islands
for a few months pat, traveling on business and
pleasure through the United States and Europe, ac
companied by his family. There are few men among
us who have more deservedly wou public esteem and
confidence thaa Mr. Austin, and we wish ths govern
ment could secure his able services, either in its ex
ecutive or judicial department. His long residence
here, the great confidence placed in him by all, his
industrious business habits, his knowledge of the na
tive language and the aloha felt for him by the chiefs
and natives, conspire to fit him for any public ser
vice, and to add to the strength aud standing of the
government. His 44 surprise' electiou as a represen
tative of the district of Kohaia, Hawaii, is a gratify
ing evidence of the esteem in which he is held by
Uy the.?. A. Eldridge from the same port.
Dr. L. II. Gulick also returned. He has come out to
fill the office of Secretary of the Hawaiian Mission
Board, which is an important and responsible trust
iu the system under which the American Mission at
these islauds is hereafter to be conducted. By the
same vessel. Rev. J. P. Green also returned a passen
ger. Durinz his absence he has studied and gradu
ated at the Bangor Theological Seminary, and has
been ordained as a minister of the gospel. It is his
purpose, we learn, to establish a female seminary on
East Maui, as soon a3 arrangements for that pnrpose
can be matured. Such an institution ia greatly need
ed there, and under the charge of Mr. Green assisted
by his sister, must become a popular institution and
productive of great good.
A sentence in our last week'a leader, referring
to the management of the Queen's Hospital during
the absence last summer of the regular physician,
baa given offence. Ou inquiry, we find that no
44 statistics" have been drawn up or published, and
the statement made was unquestionably too positive,
and based solely on current rumors, which may or
may not be correct. We have applied for the sta
tistics, and as soon as received, will publish tbem,
whether sustaining the assertion or not.
lsMfc.MOF.tAM. Many a heart wa touched by the
announcement of the death of Edward A. Kagsdale,
brought by the Eliridge and Comtt. The death
of this young cm is touchingly referred to in
the letter of tur Sau Francisco correspondent on
the first rage, than whom, none knew better his
good qualiius. An acquaintance cf fourteen or fif
teen years, during which he grew from boyhood to
manhood, we have always held hint in great esteem,
and we hazard little in saying that he was one of the
finest specimen of hia class (the half-caste) we have
ever kuown. Honest and industrious, faithful to a
proverb, strictly temperate under circumstances
which few could resist, he has left a name and mem
ory which any one might covet. To Capt- Smith,
with whom he has so long been connected, he was as
filial as a son could be, and his death will cause a
void not easily filled. Capt. Smith and the relatives
of the deceased, have the tender sympathies of a
large circle of friends.
His remains, having been brought back to hia
native islands in the Comet, the funeral was held on
Sabbath afternoon last, Rev. Mr. Damon officiating.
The church was deusely crowded with the relatives
and friends of the deceased, and hundreds were una
ble to obtain access. The Rev. Clergyman made some
very fec'.ing remarks on the sudden and lamented
death of this promising young man. The body was
interred in Nuuann Cemetery, and the procession
from the Chapel to the grave was one of the largest
we have ever witnessed on the death of any private
citizen in Honolulu, embracing thirty-two carriages,
forty couples on foot and a numerous cavalcade of
horsemen. The streets were lined with natives who
bad come out to witness it.
