Notice to Planters and Others
Interested in the Importation
As a result of the various meeting of the
Planters Society and of the invttipitions and
reports made ly a Joint Coininitee, three meiu
fcera of which, namely, Mr. W. L. Green, Mr.
W. A. Aldrich and Mr. J. C I'fluger, wore ap
pointed by the Planters' Ss-jc-iety, and three,
namely, the ini lerjireil, Mns. C" de Varigny
and Mr. C. C. Il.irri, hy the Kind's Government,
the lioverniuent Ir.is decided upon the following

Upon receiving undertakings of this nature for
ear, four or tive hundred Coolies, the Govern
ment will engage and despatch to Singapore, via
lfonkong, an Aent. perfectly acquainted with !
the requirements of this Country, and capable of i
inaiiu tucn a selection ot Coolies, in view ot
the characteristics of the race to which, they be
I.nr and their win itary condition, as may fairly
promise to secure the best class of laborers pro- I
To do this the Agent will have to be provided I
by the Government with powers to contract for j
thee Coolies upon certain term. such us ttie pe
riod for which the engagement is made, the pay
of the .men and that of the women, the condi
tions upon which thpy are to be returned at the
expiration of their contract, and also the condi
tions upon which they will be allowed to reen
gage themselves for a second term, &c, &c, &c.
It is evident that the conditions and terms will
have to be the same in the case of all the Coolies
who may be brought here and for whatever plan
tation they may be engaged.
To meet the current expenses of the Agent a
certain amount per head on the Coolies ordered
by each planter or company will have, of neces- j
eity. to be paid in advance, the Government at j
present having na mp.ms at its disposed to avoid .
each a call.
The Agent will use all diligence in the matter !
of economy at every point of outlay, and the
character of the gentleman chosen to carry out
this national object for the future prosperity of
the country is inseparable from that of the plan
ter?, and without imported labor the planters ;
cannot reckon upon permanent success is such
as to recommend itself to all.
It is therefore propped that in answering this
invitation the applications should be made sub
ject to the following conditions :
1. That the party applying will pay for the
passage, clothing, food, tc, of eacli Coolie upon i
delivery JSlOU, at th" outside, or as much Jess as
the strictest economy compatible with the health
and efficiency of the laborer will permit : and 3
per calendar month for each man, and $3 for
each woman, as a maximum.
2. That upon each laborer applied for an ad
vance of $10 will le made by the applicant for
the purpose above etated, o only to ikj jiid in
the first instance, at the departure of the Agent,
and the remaining when the necessity ot the
case shall require.
The undersigned while, in accordance with the
duty imposed upon him, he thus asks for direct
application-, will nevertheless ! happy to meet
with planters or thur agents to offer further in
formation, should it be desired Imfore any offer
is made. Ciiari.es Gordon Hopkins.

Mb.. Editor : In a fhort article, with the above
eiption, io the ScUi.tific -American of April 'J, it is
Hated as certain tbut gold and silverVere known
to the ancients prior to copper. According to Ezra
ili:27. ccr.per wns as precious as gold. Paul, in
2 Tito, iv: 14, lays a complaint against Alexander, a
coppersmith. These ire the only instances in which
mention is maie of this metal in the Holy Script
ures." The writer in the Scientific errs greatly in conse
quence of confining his investigation to the Engl'sh
Eille. Turning to Ezra viii :27, we find the .Hebrew
word Jhoheth, which means, brss. i. e. copper,
mostly hardened and tempered in the manner of
etcel, and used fjr arms and other cutting instru
ments." Chalkos is the Greek, and aes, the Latin
equivalent. In the passage referred to, the word is
accompanied by a participle, 8'gnifyir.g polished,
glittering. Polished brass is a more literal render
ing than fine copper. Nehosheth occurs very fre
qientlj in the Bible, being found no less than eleven
times in Exodus. We meet with it first in Gen. iv :22,
where it is said that Tubal Cain was an instructor ot
every artificer io brass and iron. In the Greek trans
lation of the same verse. Tubal is called a chalkeus,
coppersmith. Thus it seems that cepper was known
very early in tbe world's history; and also, that there
were smiths to' work it. If the knowledge of gold
and silver was prior, the period of priority must
have been short indeed.
But tbe mention of brass always pre-supposes tbe
existence and knowledge of copper, as copper enters
into the composition of brass. Whil'- the brass of
the present day is a composition of copper and zinc,
the bras3 of ancient times was composed of copper
and fin. To this mixture, the term bronze is now
generally applied by artists and founders.
The statement in Ezra is not, that copper was as
precious as gold; but, that two vessels of shining
bra-is were as precious as gold. This might have
been owing to the excellency cf the workmanship.
A new method of engravinzand multiplying prints
has teeu invented by a Mr. Vial, by which in a few
minutes any picture may be reproduced in so perfect
a manner, and the spirit and manuerof the drawing
are so perfectly maintained, that it is difficult to dis
tinguish it from the drawing itself.
(For Uie l'atifie Comuierciul Advertiser.)
Indubitable evidence has been received, that orders
from Honolulu have been sent to the Governors of
ether islands, from those in high official position here,
that all their cCicial influence must be used to pre
vent the election cf " haolts" to the Convention call
ed in July.
Now, tbe term haole," as used by the Governor
of Maui, in giving his orders to his subordinates ou
Molokai, does not mean unnaturalized foreigners, or
thoce not entitled to vote and to be elected by the
legal voters of this kingdom, but it means those who
have taken the oath of allegiance, or who are born
subjects of foreign parentage ! Of this there can be
no doubt. And the proscription of this clas of His
Majesty's subjects, is well calculated to excite the
alarm of all who are interested in the stability of this
government. Why is this clas proscribed? Are
they not loyal to His Majesty ? There is no more
loyal class iu the kingdom. Are they not as intelli
gent as the natives ? A3 a class, they are much more
so. Why, then, are they proscribed ? Evidently,
because the Ministry are afraid they cannot be so
easily influenced to further their illegal and uncon
stitutional attempts to upset the present order of
things, as native members could be. I can see no
otner reason for this proscription; and this alone
accounts for the zeal with which this point has been
urged from head-quarters upon the subordinates of
the government. Is this honorable ? Is it rijht ?

FQOe BAYS LATER !
The bark young JIe:tor, Capt. Fuller, arrived
early on Friday morning, June 17tti, 1C davs from
San Francisco, bringing the mails. No battlps are
reported as having occurred since our last advices,
but Grant's army had approached to the outskirts of
Richmond, with Lee's uud Beauregard's forces in
The following are the most important telegrams :
From Grant's Army.
New Youk, May 28. The Tribune's correspond
ent, writing from Grant's headquarters at 11 o'clock,
on the morning of the 25th, sajs : At the time Dir
ney's division carried the rebel rifle pits and North
Anna liride, our ri?ht wing, under Warren, ad
vanced, cutting the Virginia Central lit i! road and
establishing himself in position at Noel's Station.
The rebel line forms two aides of a triangle, its npex
being opposite Oxford, where Jlurnside crossed on'
the night of the 24th. From the apex of the rebel
line, its right extends in a southeasterly direction,
crossing the Fredericksburg railroad at an angle of
45 degrees and covering the junctiou. The left wing
extends in a southwestly dir?ctiou, cutting the Cen
tral Uiilroad and facing northwestward. Hancock
confronts the enemy's rizht wing with our Jeft, and
extends his line parallel with that of the enemy
across the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac
railroad. Burnside's line in position is opposite the
apex of the enemy's works and faces southward.
The enemy's works in front of Hancock can only be
carried with great loss.
The Richmond Examiner contends that it is Grant
that is on the retreat, and Lee, pursuing. It says
Lee followed Grant from Wilderuess. He is now the
last to move, and is the pursuer not the pursued
from Spottsylvania. It is true that by these move
ments both armies have been brought nearer to Rich
mond; but for Lee it was rendered necessary by the
coufinu ration of the soil and the lines of those rivers
which he had resolved to deJeud.
The Tunes special dispatch from Grant's head
quarters, noon of the 25th, says : This morning finds
our advance pushed three miles south of the North
Anna river, and acros-s the Virginia Central railroad,
which has been effectually destroyed. No engage
ment has occurred, the main body of the rebels ap
pear to have drawn back to tbe South Anna which is
the line they have been long preparing and meau to
defend to the last. Their advance line rests along
Long Creek, 10 miles south of the North Anna.
Two couriers from the Army of the Potomac, yes
terday morning, have arrived. The rebel army
maintained the same poeition. This arrival confirms
the report that Gen. Grant had thrown a force across
the Pamuukey, below Sexton's Junctiou, in the
direction of Hanover Court house. The enemy has
strengthened his stronz pot-ition by throwing up en
trenchments and making an abattis. No fighting
has occurred beyond skirmishing. The opinion of
the couriers is that no battle will be fought in Lee's
present position. The destruction of the Virginia
Central Railroad, above Sexton's Junction, has been
so complete that it will be u-eltss to the rebels. The
rails are destroyed, the cuttings filled, embankments
thrown down, and bridges burned.
PniLAifLPniA, May SO. The Enquirer has a
dispatch dated Headquarters Army of the Potomac,
May 27th, G A. M.. which says : The whole army is
again in motion, Hancock in advance, followed by
Wright. Gen. Warren i joining us, having brought
up the rear of our former ri.ht wing over the North
Anna. Burufidc will cris at the County bridge arid
bring up our rear. The army moves with a celeiity
never known before. We will make 20 miles by
night. Sheridan is ahead, scouring the couutry. Lee
evidently thought we were going to turn his left and
give battle on the north side of the South Anna; but
he is outgeneraled, i.d by night we will be within
four hours march of Richmond. The whole couu
try hereabout is planted with corn and excellent
pasture. We sweep all before us horses, cattle,
inules, contrabands all fall into our train.
New Yokk. May SO. The World's special dis
patch says : There was considerable skirmishing on
Friday, but no heavy fighting, near Hanover Court
house. Grant's movements are progressing well and
A dispatch from Gen. Grant, dated Hanover-town,
the 2-th, states that the army bad successfully cross
ed the Parounkey, and now occupies a front about 3
miles couth ot the river. Yesterday, two divisions
of our cavalry had an engagement with the enemy
south of Howe's store, driving them about a mile
upon what appears to be their new line. We will
find out all a! out it to-day. Our loss in the cavalry
engagement was 350 killed and wounded. Rut 3t
arc kuown to be killed. Mo-t of the enemy's dead,
aud a number of tbeir wounded, fell into our hands.
Another official dispatch, dated 2 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, gives the details of the movemeuts of the
several corps then in progress; but up to that time
there had been no engagement. Stastox.
New York, May SO The Washington special
dispatch of the Times says that Giant's reconnois
sance on Weduesday showed the rebels in full force,
and holding a powerful position in our immediate
front, somewhat in advance of Little river. The
ground was also very favorable to him, and he had
occupied every hour in fortifying it. If driven back
from here even, he had elaborately prepared the
line of the South Anna to fall back upon. Grant
therefore determined to recross the North Anna, and
swing round to tbe left, over the Pamunkey, and
leave Lee to enjoy bis position. A cavalry demon
stration was made to divert his attention, while
Grant's movement took place, which proved a
success, for when it was accomplished the rebels
were completely taken by surprise.
The Herald's Washington correspondent says that
wounded rebel officers say that their loss in the late
battles reached 30,000.
Washington, May 30 .Midnight. A portion of
Gen. Butler's force at Bermuda Hundreds, not re
quired for defensive operations, has been transferred,
uuder, the command of Gen. Smith, to the Army of
Potomac, and is supposed by this time to have form
ed a junction.
A despatch fronj headquarters cf the Army cr
the Potomac at Magahick Church. 10 miles from
Hanover town, dated P M. of Friday, 27th
May, states that our army was withdrawn to the
ncrth fcide of the North Anna on Thursday ni 'ht,
and moved towards Hanover town, the place iW
iiznated for crossing the Pamunkey. At 9 o'clock
Friday morninp, Sheridan with the First and Second
Division Cavalry took possession of Hanover Ferry
and Hanover town, finding there only a rebel ve
dette. The . first Di?ision ot the Sixth Corps arrived
at 10 A. .M., and now hold that place with a
sufficient force of cavalry, infantfy and artillery to
resist uny attack likely to be made upon it. The
remainder of the troops are pressing forward with
A later despatch, dated Saturday morning, Sth,
says tb-tt everything is going on finely. The weather
19 clear uud cool. Troops come up rapidly, aoJ in
great spirts. The army will be beyond the Pamun
key by noon.
Breckinridge is at Hanover Court-house, with a
force variously reported fioin 0,000 to 100,000.
U ickham and Loman's brigade of cavalry are also
The despatch further states that after seizing
Hanover Ferry, on Friday afternoon. Gen. Farbert
captured 77 cavalry, including 6 officer, and that
the rebel cavalry are exceedingly deuaoralzed, aud
fly before our's on every occasion.
The Herald's rermuda Hundred correspondeent
says that a Petersburg paper idScially announces
Beaure? ird's loss in the tight with Butler : 3,040
wounded were in hospital. The killed were not
The same correspondent also says that the people
cf Georgia are fleeing before the advauce of Sherman,
and have a great diCiculty iu procuring fjod and
The Herald's correspondent of the 2Cth says that
what forces Beauregard has not sent to Lee remain
in our front, strongly entrenched. Ge:i Winder,
who had charge of the Richmond prisoners, has
shifted his qaartets to Golds'. oro, Noith Catolina.
The Union prisoners have all been removed from the
New Youk, May 31. The Richmond Examiner
of the liGth speaks of the gloomy placidity prevailing j
in the city, caused by the closing of all stores, shops, j
etc., lor the purpose ot bringing iuto service all
arras-bearing men. The families of poor militia rr.en,
the paper s::ys, continue to mingle auatheinns and
tears witi.- their borrowed crusts. Extortionists iu
the markets continue to swell their profits and the
blessed wisdom tf those in authority. People have
grown sick vt the wrongs lufLcicd on them within
the biief space of a few weeks, and be sure they will !
treasure them up. !
From Cleorgm. I
A dispatch fron Gen. Sherman, dated near Dallas
at six iti the morning, what dny ? reports that the !
enemy had discovered his move to turn Allatooua, j
and marched to meet cur forces at Dallas. Our
columns met the enemy at one mile eat of Pumpkiu j
Vine Cretk; and we pushed them back about three j
miles, to a point where the roads fork to Atalanta j
and Marietta. Here Johnson has chosen a strong !
line and made hasty but strong parapets of timber j
and earth. Gen. Sherman's right is at D.ill-is and ;
his centre about three miles north. Tne country is J
deiirely wooded and broken. There are no roads of
consequence We hive had many sharp encounters I
but nothing decisive. Stastox. j
Washington". May SO A telegram from General ;
Sherman dated Dallas, the L'.hli, reports that on Sat- I
urda3 an engagement occurred between the enemy
and Mcl'herson's corps. The rebels were driven j
back with a loss of 12,500 killed and wounded. They :
left in our hands about S00 prisoners. Our loss was j
not over 300. Stamox. !
From New Orleans.
Washington, May '2S. Dispatches from General
Banks dated 21st May, give details of the ingeuuity
and b:illiaut achievement of Col. Baily in construct
ing a dam across the falls of the Red river for the re
lief of our gunboats.
Our army in going from Alexandria to the Missis
sippi, had an engagement at Mauazona, and one at
Yellow Biyou, in both of which the rebels were
beaten. Gen. Bmks states that no prisoners, wag
ons, or other material of the army were captured by
the enemy, except that abandoned bv him in the un
expected engagement at Sabine C:'. i lloads, ou the
8th of April. With the exception of the losses sus
tained there the material of the army is complete.
Washington', May 30. The Star says that Banks
is appointed Military Governor of Louisiaua, with
headquarters at New Orleaus.
Artificial limbs are now made of vulcanized India
rubber. As they are hollow, all the machinery is
contained within, and is not liable to be deranged or
broken. They are much more readily made, and
lighter than those made of wood or iron.
A bill is before the New York Legislature provid
ing for the incorporation of a company to build an
underground railway from "one end of Manhattan Is
land to the other. It is estimated the work could be
done for 6,000.000. Surveys have been made.
It is said that, in the late terrible battle at Duppel, I

admiration of their enemies, wno piaceu a woouen

buried, with the inscription : y Here lie twenty-five
brave Danes, who fell hero;callv"on the 17th of March,
in the combat of Dappel." The act reflects credit
on both parties. In what contrast to the action of
tlu'se German soldiers was the conduct of Forrest's

The news is important. Lee lias been forced
back by rapid marches, and at the latest advices
held the entrenchments before Richmond, in
the vicinity of the Meadows and Bottom's
Bridge. Grant's army as near as we can learn,
holds the Tolopatomoy creek and Chiekahominy
river, north of Lee's army, and from thence to
the Pamunky river and the White House. His
nearest position is six miles from Richmond.
There has been fighting between some of the
troops of the two armies before Richmond, but
no decisive engagements.
The position which the armies occupy now
is very similar to that held by M'CIellan and
Lee in 18G2, and the struggle for the mastery
and the possession of Richmond, probably took
place early in June, though it might not be
decided for some days or even weeks.
Lee's army, including Beauregard's corps,
which is in Richmond, numbers about 7o,000

Nothing new from Louisiana.
Gen. Sherman bad reached to within twenty

From CJ rant's Army.
On Monday, May 3")th, the Army of the Potomac
reached Mechaniesville, near the Chiekahominy, six
mi I os north of Richmond, and twelve miles from the
White Houee, on the Pamunkey. which is the new
base of supply. It was Mechaniesville that the seven
days battle began in 1SG2. Sheridau's cavalry had
completely used up the remnant of the rebel cavalry.
The position of Lee's army on the 30th is not stated.
As but Utile opposition was met with on the advance
to Mechaniesville, it is probable the rebel army had
fallen back to the intrenchments of the Capital.
Rebel journals of the 30th of May concede Grant's
superior generalship and question Lee's ability to
save Richmond. General W. T Smith's corps joined
Grant by the water route. Gilmore remained with
FoitTKEFS Monrok. May 31st. Lieutenant General
Grant's communications with the White House, on
the Pamunkey, are complete, and will work well.
Richmond papers cf May 30th have been received.
They have changed their views in rezard to the mili
tary ability of General Grant, and say they have
underrated him ; thr t he is stronger than they had
dreamed of, and manifest some fears of Lee's success
in repelling the Yankee army.
A messenger from General Grant reports that on
Monday morning (May 30th.) our army crossed to
Mechaniesville (near the Chiekahominy,) with but
little opposition. Sheridan had routed the enemy's
cavalry at all points, capturing many prisoners.
Position of the Army.
Dispatches dated May 31st, state that in IIanco?k's
attack last night Colonel Brooks drove the enemy oJt
ot a strongly intrenched line and holds it. Losses
not reported. Burnside's whole corps got across the
Tolopaiomy creek last evening, and is in full connec
tion with Warren. The left of Hancock rests upon
this side of the creek. The Sixth Corps is upon
Hancock's right and threatens the left flank of the
enemy. Smith ought to arrive at noon, when he can
support Warren and Buruside. if necessary. Sheti
dan, with Gregg's and Torbett's divisions of cavalry,
is on our lelt lank. Wilson's division of cavalry is
on our right and rear for purposes reported in a
former dispatch. The country thereabouts is thickly
wooded with pines, with eood openings. Indications
this morning are that the enemy has fallen back
south of the Chiekahominy. Stanton.
A portion of the troops at Bermuda Hundred have
been transferred to the Army of the Potomac. The
troops wete sent in transports with great celerity up
York river to White House, Grant's new base of sup
plies. Gillmore remains with Butler at Bermuda
Hundred. Large quantities of supplies have been
sent to White House.
Advices from the Army of the Potomac are under
date of the morning of the 31st. On the previous af
ternoon, the "army haviug advanced to a position
on the Tolopatomoy and the Chiekahominy, the
rebels suddenly attacked and attempted to turn the
left wing, consisting of Warren's corps. From the
direction of this attack, it is apparent that the object
cf the enemy was to cut off the Army of the Potomac"
from its new base of supplies on the Pamunkey. It
may have been deisgned, also, to intercept Smith's
corps, which had not then come up from the White
House. Grant reports that the attack was repulsed
with ' very heavy slaughter " and the capture of a
number of prisoners.
