SATURDAY, JUJr: IS.
The new receive by the late arrivals, an
nouncing the openin Moi the ejrin campaign in
Amer.Ht anl the stressful progress of the na
tional arms, must lu-; carried a thrill of joy to
every one who eympifijiizes with the Union cause,
and desires the etippijjsion of. the most powerful
as it is the mos-t unr.'(;1
lion that has ever
graced the annals of any
nation. Little did'ost of our readers dream
of the magnitude of revolt that was opened
when the first gun w fired on Sumter, or that
instead of the 75,000". lunteers called for by the
President in April IcY-! a million and a half of
men would be requir' . x quell it. Ly no means
is it subdued yet, but ever, since it began, have
loyal men had more cause for hope that the unity
of the American Nation will yet be preserved,
peace restored, and blavery, which is the origin
and cauge of the present trouble, forever extin
guished. The general complexion of the war news re
ceived up to the 25th of May, is favorable to the
national arms, though it cannot be denied that
there is yet to be very severe and hard fighting
in Virginia before the struggle, even iu that
State, is ended. The importance of the conflict
there may be seen by the following telegram,
showing how the Richmond tapers view it :
The Richmond Examiner, of the ICth, says : The
enemy have corjctntrated in Virginia; if beaten there,
they will be beaten everywhere ; if they win there,
they win everything. The war and the Confederacy
might continue, but if Virginia is lost the present
Confederate organization will not, probably, survive.
From the opening or the spring campaign,
which was on the 4th of May, the lighting in
Virginia has been most terrific on both sides, the
losses very heavy, and up to May 22d, one con
tinued series of battles. It is stated that on the
side of Lt e's at my they have been between
25,000 and 30,000 killed, wounded and captured.
The losses in Grant's army havo been probably
nearly as many. This, of course, makes large
gaps in the regiments on both sides, some of
which have been filled by veterans and recruits
from the North and South.
The steady and uniform advance of Grant's
army, ever since it crossed the Rapid Ann on the
4th of May to attack Lee, and the continued
forced retreat of the latter from entrenchments,
which he has been months in preparing, show
that the victory, thus far, is on the side of Grant,
and the Richmond papers acknowledge the battle
of the 12th May to have been such. Still, as
Lee is in a desperate position, he must resort to
the most desperate expedients, and may recover
temporarily from his reverses.
It may be well to give a little sketch of the
progress of the conflict in Virginia, and the
position at the latest advices received by the
Keeler, which brought dates to the 25th of May.
The battles of May 4th and 5th, opened by
Grant advancing his forces over the Rapid Ann
River about midway between Culpepper and
Fredericksburg, and along the line of that
stream. The fighting on those days was very
severe, the bulk of both armies having been
engaged. The next two or three days the fight
ing was rather desultory and not general, the
result of which was that both armies changed
the positions which they held on "the "opening
of the battle on the 4th, and now ranged nearly
parallel with the Richmond and Fredericksburg
Railroad. In this position of the combatants,
the fighting during the whole following week,
especially on the 11th and 12th, was terribly
bloody. Grant all this time appeared to be en
deavoring to move his army by flank move
ments, or sideways, towards Richmond, holding
the railroad by which he possessed constant com
munication with Fredericksburg and Washington.
As Grant pushed his forces slowly south, Lee
was compelled to leave his entrenchments and
fall south also, to keep the former from cutting
him off from Richmond. And by the latest
reports from the two armies. May 24, Lee had
crossed the Gordonsville railroad track, prob
ably somewhere near Beaverdam, and had re
treated rapidly the &uth Anna River, which
would place him in the vicinity of Montpelier
Court-house, bound to Richmond. At the same
time, Grant's army was pressing him hard, and
must have been on the line of the railroad
somewhere in the vicinity of the junction of the
Richmond and Fredericksburg R. R. and the
Gordonsville R.' R. This place is called " Sex
ton's Junction'' on some maps. In passing, Ave
may say that a good map of Virginia for refer
ence at this time, will be found in Harper's
Weekly of May 17, 1SG2, or May 23, 1803,
which those who preserve their files can easily
We infer from the news received, that Leo was
pushing south to again occupy Richmond. The
next clash of the two armies will, therefore,
be in the vicinity of that city, which has, in all
probability, become little else than a strong for
tress, and if Lee succeeded in occupying it, and
effected a junction with Beauregard's forces, he
will be in a position to make a strong defense
against the attacks of Grant from the North,
who will, of course, be supported by Gen. But
ler from the south.
It must be borne in mind that all the railroads
leading from the south and west to Richmond
have been broken in several places by expeditions
sent out by Butler and Grant, while the latter
holds the railroad running north. This destruc
tion of the railroads and of some of the largest
bridges, will render it difficult to reinforce Lee
from the south or furnish him with ammunition
and food for his army, except by the ordinary
Gen. Butler's forces are strongly entrenched
at City Point on the James river, about ten miles
from Petersburg and thirty-three from Rich
mond. We do not find the strength of his army
given, hut it probably consists of from 30,000 to
en wvrk II" c - - a. 1 - I 1 1 '
ju,wu men. jus iorce-r-jK;iw'0 O 1X5 'ieiu as an
auxiliary rpxr-tO cooperate with Grant when
the i3?tcr approaches Richmond. City Fint is
a strong position, where gunboats can be brought
to aid in any attacks made against it, and at the
same time it is in direct communication by water
with Fortress Monroe, which forme its base of
supplies. The rebels under Beauregard are
stated to have made nine attacks" on Butler's
entrenchments, and were finally compelled to
give up the attempt to dislodge him. It is said
that he has orders from headquarters simply to
keep his forces in reserve till called out to coope
rate with Grant.
While all this is going on around Richmond,
two strong forces of national troops are in the
Shenandoah Valley, one under Gen. Couch, at
Newbern, (on the Virginia and Tennessee rail
road in South Western Virginia,) who holds the
railroad at that point, and another under Gen.
Sigel, at Straburg, who has recently had a fight
with Gen. Breckinridge, and seems to have got
the worst of the engagement, being compelled to
retreat to that place.
From Georgia, our dates are to the 29th of
May, at which time, after fighting several bat
tles with the rebels, Gen. Sherman was in pos
session of Kingston, Rome and Marietta, only
twenty miles north of Atlanta, with free commu
nication with Chattanooga by railroad, and with
"Washington by telegraph. His advance seems
to have been a series of victories, more brilliant
even than those won by Grant, though the rebels
under Johnston contested his march inch by
inch, and fought worthy of a better cause. Con
siderable supplies and valuable material of war
had been captured by him, which the rebels can
ill afford to lose at this time. The point which
Sherman is pushing for is Atlanta, which is the
central depot of supplies and the most important
strategic josition in the State, as it is the centre
if the network of railroads which traverse it.
The fighting in this State is by no means over,
as Johnston has still a strong army under him,
and by some strategy may obtain temporary
advantage over Sherman, as by getting posses
sion of the railroad between Rome and Chatta
nooga. The success thus far is all on the side of
the Union arms.
From Louisiana, we learn that the forces un
der Banks had all been compelled to retreat
down the Red river, and with the gunboats had
reached the Mississippi River. The latter, it
seems, were in great peril of being captured,
owing to the falling of the river, so as to pre
vent their return. By some skillful engineer
ing, the particulars of which have not yet
been received, tho water in the river was so
dammed up as to enable the boats to float again
and proceed down the stream. This expedition
to northwestern Louisiana appears to have been
very unfortunate, and attended with great loss
of men, material of war and gunboats. The
result is that Gen. Banks has been superceded.
The rebel forces in that State will now probably
overrun Arkansas again, and may do some dam
age there, though really, no advantages that
they may gain west of the Mississippi can affect
the-final suppression of the rebellion.
We do not find that any measures have been
taken by the American Government regarding
the Fort Pillow massacre of three hundred ntgro
soldiers by the rebels. It is a difficult matter to
retaliate in any way so as to receive the approval
of an impartial and observing world. The least,
however, that can be done is to proclaim those
engaged in the massacre as outlaws, to be shot
without mercy if captured. The account of
the investigations before the Congressional CVm
mittce will luake the blood of every man burn
with rage against the Southern savages who are
guilty of such horrid cruelties. The event has
j shown the negro soldiers what to expect from the
o I 1 1 1 .
ooutuern uaruanans, anu as a result we una tne
following telegram among the latest received,
which shows tt at they can fight and teach the
rebels to keep at a respectful distance :
New Yobk, May 25th A Ninth Corps correspon
dent aay UmalaaiiMMolr with the attack CD OuTH
left on the night of the l'Jth, a Division of civulry
attacked our extreme right wing, composed of Fer
rero's colored troops. The attack was impetuous,
but was met with great stcadiuess. A heavy volley
from the rifles of the colored troops brought the rebels
to a halt. They reformed, however, and advancing
more steadily, were again met with unflinchiug
bravery. Finally, finding they couM make no im
pression, tbey left the field.
The negro regiments have still to play a prom
inent part in the suppression of the rebellion,
and their rights will be protected. It is said
that there are some twelve or fifteen thousand of
them in the Army of the Potomac under Grant
and Burnside, and we shall soon hear of their
being called into action.
Never before has there been such united action
and such cooperation between the army, the gov
ernment and the people as at present exists.
Much of the efliciency in the movements of the
army during May is no doubt attributable to the
plan of placing the whole direction of the war
into the hands of one man, Lieutenant-General
Grant, who is now clothed with supreme power,
so far as the direction of the plan of the war is
concerned. Under that direction, all the move
ments are made witfi one object in view, striking
at all points at once so as to prevent assistance
being given by one army to another.
The people, too, are sustaining the Government
and army most nobly. The sanitary fairs in
progress are a perfect marvel, and excite the '
wonder of the world. That of New York has I
realized over one million dollars, and the tota'.
realized thus far in aid of the war or rather for
the relief of the soldiers wounded in battle is
about TWO MILLIONS.
.fc-itlll Later IS'ows.
.The Young Hector, which arrived yesterday
morning, brings us advices from the seat of war
to the 20th of May. The San Francisco Bulle
tin gives the following position of the two armies
up to the 27th, showing Grant's strategy, by
which he designed to place his army between
Lee and Richmond : "v
The latest news this morning from Virginia wa3 to last Fri
day, the 27th. At that time Lee's army was drawn up, be
tween the North ami South Anna rivers, in the form of two
aides of a triangle, the apex oj.pr.site Oxford (which is on the
north hank of the North Anna,) its left stretching toward the
south we across the Virginia Central Railroad, its right ex
tending southerly across the Fredericksburg and Richmond
railroad. Uur main army is also south of the North Anna
llurnside holding the south bank opposite Oxford and confront
ing the angle formed by the two winjrs of the rebel army.
Hancock's corps was drawn up opposite the rebels' riht and
parallel to it, crossing the line of the Kredericksburir ami Rich
mond railroad. Jleauwhile Grant has throv. n a force across the
Pamunky, toward Hanover Court House. There were imiica-.
tions thut he intended to re.eat his old flanking movement to
the left, apparently bein; wiliir.fr to risk Lee's advance north
ward, perhaps holding with McClellan whiie on the 1'eninsula,
that Lee will have so much to do looking after him that there is 1
not the slightest danper in uncovering Washington. If it is
true that the result of the campaign depeuds in any considera
ble degree on the spirit of the soldiers, this will prove a success
ful one. for never were men in better spirits than ours seim to
be. The Army of the Potomac has at last a commander with
whom victory is a habit. They remember by what route Vicks-
bun? was taken, and how often rumor t roucht in tidings of
Grant Ning defeated, yet one bright morning when the most
hopeful were beginning to despond, the trutn flashed ovtr the i
wires that Vicksburg had surrendered to Gra: t.
As the Army of the Potomac draws closer to Richmond and
the final struggle of the campaign approaches, the anxiety is
naturally increased timid observers grow more and mi. re nerv
ous, croakers give voce to their lamentations, the most sansuine
hold their breath. We have as brave an army as ever marched
or fought, -as skillful a Genenil i.s ever clothed himself with
victory in every campaign that he passes through our num
bers are as abundant as are the enemy's, our appliances are
surely equal t- his, our cause is the ri lit. No reverse has yet
turned back our advance. Over and again it hasheen checked,
but it is always oDly briefly, and many a battle has been avert
ed by turning a position that was too strong to.be carried
without great loss of lives. That we may presume Grant is
now about, and he is so near uon Richmond that many more
of Lee's isitions cannot be flanked without' wheelii.g our artil
lery up to its very gates.
P. Despatches which arrive just as. we go to press an
nounce that Grant on Thursday night May 'ZJ, withdrew hi
nrrny from the south of the North Anna and moving it to the
eastward would have it all across the Pamunkey river (ea--t of
the Fredericksburg and Ktchmnnd railroad) by noon of Satur
day, May 23. The advance was already at Hanover Townv
(not Cnurt-hous. which is wet of the Town.) So another
The packet brings us one day's later news than
the above. Grrnt's strategic movement to get
between Lee and Yiie'-imond appears to have been
so nearly successful that his army was all at
Hanover town, within four hours march (fifteen
miles) of the city, and between it and Lee's ar
my, the latter still holding his entrenched posi
tion, we.t of the railroad. The final contest
before Richmond has now assumed a phase of
more interest than anything that has occurred
since McClellan's campaign in 1SG2.
The Yankee brings us four days later news
from the seat of war, and advices by her change
the position of the armies, so that Lee now
occupies Richmond and a line South and East
from the city, towards Bottom's Bridge, while
Grant is North of him. In this position the
arui:?s can hardly remain long without having a

Honolulu, June 17th, 1864.
To the Trustees of Oahu College :
. Gentlemen : The Committee appointed by you
to attend the Annual Examination of Oahu Col
lege on Tuesday and Wednesday last, can find
no" terms for their report, other than those of
general satisfaction at the advancement of the scholars
ia all the branches of a found, liberal education.
The programme of the studies selected for examin
ation' was as follows :

Where all the classes acquitted themselves eo well,
it would be invidious to particularize. We can only
say, from thu young gentlemen, well advanced in the
Classics, down to the youDgest class iu Arithmetic,
there was always the evidence of intelligent effort ou
the part of the pupils, showing plainly that their
teachers appreciated the theory and well understood
the practice of " teaching scholars how to study."
Your Committee would especially commend the at
tention paid by the instructors to the philosophical
and intellectual studies, so well calculated to culti
vate the minds of their pupils, and to prepare them
for an intelligent comprehension of the duties of
The classes in vocal music ar.d the specimens of
drawing and painting, reflected much credit upon the
application of the scholars and the talents of their
teachers in those accomplishments. The crayon
drawings were particularly fine, so were some of the
landscapes, but your Committee would recommend
that more attention be paid to sketching from Na
ture, as being better adapted, under the eye of so
skillful a teacher, to develop original talent.
The " Military Drill " of the' young gentlemen
wculd be creditable to veteran soldiers.
The graceful figures of the Calisthenics," and
the simple melodies by the young ladies, which de
lighted the eyes and ears of the assembled company,
were only equalled by the less intellectual, but not
less real enjoyment of being ministered to by those
young ladies, during recess," with a practical dis
play of their knowledge of household cherristry, which
delighted the gustatory organs of all and gave indis
putable evidence tbat that important branch ia their
education had not been neglected.
The loss the institution will receive, in being de
prived of the accomplished gentleman and lady, who
have so long and so successfully presided over the
College, is a serious cne ; and your Committee only
shares the hope of the community in trusting, that
the efforts now being made to find their successors
will result in recuring those who can keep up the ef
ficiency, which has made the Oahu College one of the
most valuable institutions of Hawaii nei.
The rhetorical exercises of the Exhibition at the
Fort Street Church on Thursday evening, were praise
worthy in the extreme; and the variety of talent and
style displayed by the young gentlemen in their ora
tions and declamations i9 worthy of special notice.
Your Committee commend the selection for discus-
I sion of scientific subjects, as highly becoming those
whe aim it is to be indeed, educated men.
The music of the evening was of the best charac
ter, and its rendering, so highly creditable to the
performers, is good evidence that Honolulu continues
to sustain her well-earned musical reputation.

The brig .Morning Star sails fur Kohala and
Hilo on loesJay next. Having lately had the pleas
ure of a trip to Hawaii in her, we can say from ex
perience that a more comfortable vessel, and a more
kind, attentive and gentlemanly captain than Cap
tain James, are not to be found in our coasting ser
vice. Most of the schooners to Hawaii so far as
their accommodations for passengers are concerned
are liele elsa than an imposition on tbe public.

via Hilo, clean.
Mondy battle is averted another of Lee's pos't,on!

NOTliS OF THE WEEK.
7Eir The Rhetorical and Vocal Exhibition of the
pupils of Oahu College took place ou Thursday eve
ning at the Fort Street Church, before a large and
select audience. In fact, the bouse was crowded,
although an entrance fee of one dollar for each per
son was collected at the door, to aid in repairs recently
made on tbe college. The sum realized was over
S300. The performances commenced with the chorus
of " Now vanish before the Holy Beams,which was
1 beautifully sung. Young ladies dressed in white
muslin, with pretty sashes, and roses ia their bosoms,
are sad disturbers of one's thoughts, and when they
begin to warble like nightengales, it is all up with
poor newspaper reporters. On this account, we lost
; the two first addresses, on " Choice of a Profession"
and the "Bondman's Appeal to England." After
an excellent oration on " Kamehameha III." by
Wm. Davis, well delivered, siogiDg by a juvenile class
was introduced, which was followed by "Freedom's
Conflicts" by W. D. Gelett and a humorous dialogue,
by Masters Alexander and Cooke, well spoken, and
which pleased the audience. One or two such piece
introduced at exhibition are generally well received
and have a good effect. The several addresses that
followed were well delivered. " The Spirit Voices,
sung by Mbs Cooke, " Aria" by Miss Armstrong,
and the " Ships on Fire" and " the Maniac" by
Miss Holden, were most charmingly executed, and
the voices of the fair singers touched the heart strings
of the audience, as was shown by the frequent and
continued encoring. For purity of tone, strength
and beauty of expression, some of the singing on
this occasion has never been excelled in Honolulu,
and tho.'W not present lost a treat seldom offered. The
concluding addresses of " Professional Experience"
by Wm. Rowell, " American Eloquence" by A. Cald
well, Jr., and "Great Achievements" by O. P.
Emerson, were each well delivered. The exercises
coa.-luded, after three hours duration, with the
chorus of " Praise ye the Lord."
j' Valuable Testimonial. We are most happy to
learn from the American Minister, Mr. McBride, that
he his been authorized by the President of the United
States, to draw upon the Tieasury for $500 in gold,
to be expended iu testimonials and presented in the
name of the President to the Rev. Mr. Kekela and
l'uree other persons who assisted in rescuing from
'savage violence, Mr. Whalon, chief mate of the
whaleship Congress, at the Marquesas I&i-inds.J The
readiness and promptitude in rewarding these1 per
sons for their timely efforts, is highly commendable
oa the part of the Government, aud we are confident
the itifluence will be good among the inhabitants of
other parts of Polynesia, when the facts are known.
We congratulate Mr. McBride in bis watchful efforts
to promote the interests of American commerce and
the welfare of American seamen. Depend upen it,
money thus expended will prove the truth of the
sayiug of Solomon, " cast thy thread upon the waters
and thou shalt find it after many days."-
