i'or m.uj ye-us I h. been person-ill acquainted
with all of the American IWetant missionaries
upon the isl in and I thiok pretty penerlly. with
their view upon thin subject, and I know cf no one
who has not preferred the continued independence cf
the Hawaiian Sereik;nty to at.nexatiou to the United
States cr rubj-din-uion in any frin to any foreign
power; but if the lust refuge from outside annoy
ances and prc&i'ire wag ooly to be found under the
protection of eomc more powerful government, then
they dubflt-s wuM Lite pieferred that government
to ls th Uii'te ! Sutes.
They catne to promote the moral and religious in
terests of the T.ntic ii, and th continued independence
cf the nation they have regarded as mt re favorable
to the promotion f tlue interests, than t-uljction
or annexation to any foreinn power. They hate
ftvered independent t long as independence was
p.-.-ib!e, and they do m now. When thin seemed no
lor gT possible, then, us in their view, union to the
I'oitc 1 ta'es would have len more favorable to all
the int.-ret4 for which they specially labored, as
well a to every umteiul interest of national pros
erity, they wcu'd have ptfcferrcd tuch a union, but
t.nly demit r rtsort, to a union with any ether
country. I siuUte no confidence in Faying th:it Mr.
Wyliie freely tfnted l Die many years since that
Kucb were hi view, fwr which be give uninswer
able reaaotiJ, which were communicated t and ap
proved by L,rd (Tireo lun, thin, if I mi-take not,

Such, too. were the views held by Chief Justice
Lee and others of the highest respectability, and us
true friend to the continual independence of these
is!and under the dynasty of the Kamehatcehas, as
were cr are anywhere to be f und; but it ii true
that the Sovereign and his chiefs through !or-g years,
had endured anuoyances and pubmitted (L;cnu-e
Ihey tnu-t) to what they deemed injustice from those
who were stronger than they, till they were wearied
cut. What these annoyances were, is snfScirntly
well known, and I have no desire to call them up.
Suffice it to hay, that many at leait lelt them to be
so serious and threatening that but for the prompt j
and favorable response of the U. 6. Commissioner, I
the Hon. Luther Severance, to the anxious inquiry j
of the King, whether, in case of an emergency then
feared to be imminent, the L. S. Government would J
throw over this government, feeble in physical i
power, but strong in its consciousness cf right, the I
-Eg is cf in protecting arm, they do not believe j
that the Hawaiian banner, the symbol of the Sove- :
reign ty of the Kamehamehas, would be floating over
the Inud to-diy. Dut the exigency did not come,
and not a few firmly believe that it was warded oil
by the reply if the Hon. Mr. Severance. I allude to
these facts because they are known, and because the
knowledge of them is necessary to vindicate the mis
sionaries from any suspicion of disloyalty to the inde
pendence of the inlands.
The Hawaiian Government and people have never
had more true and disinterested friends than the
American missionaries. Their desire is first for the
entire independence of this kingdom: but second, if
this for any reason cannot be retained, then they
believe that annexation to the United States would
be better for the prosperity of the islands, bqth raoral
and physical, tban to be unite! to any other foreign
power. And why should they not, if the first must
be bacrsficed to outside pressure, prefer the second.
They are American born; as Americans, and first in
the field, they have given letters and Christianity to
the nation; American commerce has been paramount
to all others, and done more to bring material pros
perity to the country ; American territory stretches
imiK uur oor'itrrs neircr man me icrriiory ui any
ther nation; and Hawaiian produce in the main
must find an A nitric in market. If they did not pre
fer this as a de-rnier resort, they would be recreant
to the land that bore them, and to the land of their
adoption; f.r. next to national independence, it must
eeeot to them that AmericanTzation would promote
the very best interests of the Hawaiian people, and I
ho no re-i Mr. Wyliie and Lord Clarendon for their
impartial opinions on this same point, similar in can
dor to a letier from the Earl cf Aberdeen, read to me
ty-y4ars ago by General Miller.
Whatever e te may be taid of the American mis
sionaries, it cannot be truthfully said that they are
not the fast friends of the independence cf the
Hawaiian Nation umter Hawaiian cnve."fcigns, ami
they hive done nothing to create 4j emergency
Mf)rtardiz'nsV Hawaiian indmpndeiiie. s If thru think
mistakes are made, they love the whole people, rulers
and ruled, loo well not to regret and deplore them.
What I have aid Las seemed to me to be required
in the interests of justice. It has not been said in
any boastful spirit, whether as it regirds mission
aries or Americans, or to disparage or undervalue
what ethers have done of whatever nationality.
Respectfully yours, Sam'l N. Castle.
Oahc Coixfce. Another term of this institution
opened on the 7tli inst , several new pupils having
entered. Pupils from the other islands have not
all ani'ed. We are glad to learn that the institu
tion will le supplied with a full corps of teachers,
although the new President bas not arrived. Prof.
Alexander will officiate as Presideut pro tern. Miss
Coan will occupy her former position as teacher of
music, drawing, &c. Mis Euiiiy Alexander, a grad
uate of the last year, has been employed as an assist
ant teacher. It is a matter of much satisfaction that
the Trustees have been able to secure the valuable
service of W. L- Driham, Esq., a graduate of Har
vard University, now visiting the on a scien
tific excursion, in company witb Mr. Horace Mann.'
The?e gentlemen will occupy the residence of the
President, and carry forward their botanical and
scientific persuits, while Mr. Brigh am will be occu
pied daring school-hours, in teaching. No definite
reply has been received from the communications
addressed to Dr. Andersen, respecting a new Presi
dent, but rumors have reached the islands that the
friends of the College are looking about for a suitable
roan to srnd out as President. It is supposed there
has been some delay in the matter cf selecting a
President in order to consult with President Mills on

I teirin up the tiatk with vigor for several hours.
About nuon they were interrupted by the appearance
i t the enemy advancing aionz the railroad fr.in
Petersburg in line of battle. It proved to be Hill's
crp?. which hid been he'd in resetve the fast tew
d. They advai ced at duub'e quick s wn as
they Ucime awaie cf cur intei.tiuu. The Second
Iiviion, Ayers commanJing, held the advance on
the railroad ; the Third and rcurth 1'ivisicns sup
porting on the right. The First Iitisun was placed
in cover cf the left to prevent Mirpri-e in that direc-
lion. The attack n the S.cot.1 Division was a deter-
in i ned one; but our men met it gallantly, driving the
relels back in handsome style with heavy li.ss. Alter
repeated attempts to lorce cur line?, and after two
hours' hard fighting, the rebels fell back tome dis
tance, keeping up their fire nil the afternoon.
The movement was a complete surprise to the j
enemy. The tibtl pickets in the vicinity were so j
ast nisnej mat tiiey nai tmrely tune to escare from
us. A number of prisoners were taken, several of !
wheni weie wundd. Over a mile of the track was j
torn up. Our tri' ps held their position at dak to- I

heavy. It is entim ited that the rebels took l.oOO
pri-otu-rs. it teems our troops vrere surprised, many (
being in ehelter tents tr3ing to escape the heavy raiu. ;
The rebels first appealed about t.ix.n cii the light of j
the road in front of the third Division of the Fifth :
Corps. This evidently whs a feint for the purpose of '
feeling tur lines. About 3 P. t. they charged in
he-ivy brce between the Fifih nnd Sixth Corps, and J
tuned the tlmk of the fotmer, captuiing a large !
number cf pri.-o:ns. Tl.i part of the iine was I
forced back for some distai.ce, when the Nimh Corps, !
whivh was- relieved the night previous by part cf the i
Second Corps, came on the field nnd opened fire, j
checking the advance of the leliels and taking a few !
pii.-oi.t.s. A heavy roiurnn of rebels at the same j
time charged ou the left of our line, west of the rail- '
road, held by the cond Division, whose liue they J
broke, and took r C(.0 prisoners. Ne.irly all cf :
I tie Hegular Liigude, commanded hy (Jen. Hayes, is
believed to be prisoners. Our whole line was forced
back with heavy loss iu killed and wounded. The
enemy suffered worse in this particular, as his men
were dying thick all'ovtr the field. Before daik our
men reformed, being reinforced, and a desperate
charge was made to recover the Iont ground, which

Washington, August '22 The operations of
Grant's forces are detailed iu the following official
City Point .1uq. Vith. Warren's Corps moved
to and across the Weldon Railroad, a mile south of
the wciks. He met nothing but the enemy's pickets, J
wh'.c'u had advanced from there towards Petersburg. I
. . - . . . .. ..
.Meeting the enemy, we had n considerable fight
during the day, sulleiing some loss and inflicting
severe damage on the enemy. The extent of the
damage is unknown."
Citt I'oint. August lUth. The enemy came out
this evening to Warreu's right, driving iu the pickets
connecting him and the h ft. on our oil line, on the
Jerusalem plank road. Tire rebels were forced back.
Ntw Yokk, August '221 The Tribune' special
says that Wurreu is entrenched, and his command
has been reinforced. He intends thoroughly to
destroy the Weldon Railroad. Exactly one-half of
all the rebel Virginia forces is in the Shenandoah
Valley awaiting Sheridan, while the other half boid
the line from Petersburg to Richmond.
The Post's special dispatch says we have no news
of import: nee from Grant. The new movement on
the Weldon road is progressing favorably and a grati
fying result is confidently anticipated.
Not.mg but skirmishing to day, as both parties
are entrenching, aud a battle is locked for at any
moment. The enemy seems determined to regain
possession of the railioud. The prisoners taken be
long principally to Beauregard's corps.
(.rant's .Movement north of the Jnrnes.
Washington, August IGth. The mail boat reports
a movement of the Second Coips up the James
river on Saturday night, resulting iu the routing cf
a large rebel force at Dutch G p, and the capture of
five hundred prisoners and seven pic-res of artillery.
The position held by the enemy is said lo have been
a strong one, and is now occupied by our troops,
who are able to hi Id it.
Baltimore, August lo. The American has the
following from Bermuda Hundred : The Second
Corps were taken on transports at City Point yester
day, aul started down the river, apparently for
Washington. The rebels watched from the shore,
no doubt with much interest in the movement. The
transports did go dowu the river for ten miles, but
put back under cover of darkness and returned,
coming up by this point about ten P. M., aud pro
ceeded up the river; at the same time the Ten thjCorps,
with the artillery of the Second, were crossing to
the north side of the James, aud were all landed
within twelve miles of Richmond this morning.
This force, with Foster's division, makes quite a
respectable army. It is understood their next move
will be to destroy, it possible, the rebel pontoon
bridge above Fort D uiing. If this be done Lee
jwill be unable to trausfer his army to the north side
without marching out of the way more than twenty
t miles. Musketry firing was heard iu the direction
' cf this movement this morning. Our troops have
: gained an important position within two miles cf
, Fort Darling General Hancock accomplished this
.end by skillful manceuveiing. Our less is small.
Washington, August lbtb. Ou Saturday last
Hancock's Corps was put in motion on the James
river, and by a circuitous route reached the north
bide of the James at Deep Bottom, near Dutch Gap
on Saturday night. Turner's and Terry's Divisions
of the Tenth corps, also crossed over to Deep Bottom
the same n ght. Foster's Division, which had for
some time been posted at Deep Bottom, was advanced
? by Birney a little after sunrise cn Sunday morning,
r pushing the ribel skirmishers tefore him some con-
l silerable distance, when the Fifth Massachusetts
"inent charged and broke the rebel line, and
capjtured seVCPtJ prisoners.
Gregg's cavalry had cleared the reads for Han
Wck, and be got his becGS'J -!t rP? in Fcs.'t5on on
Birney's right, on the Newmarket Voiri-'wili5hJad3
from the vicinity of Mintutu Hill?, Richmond. ie
position thus taken by Hancock is about ten miles
from Richmond. Bimey made an assault on his
front, and captured a line of the enemy's works
which guarded the approaches to Richmond, via
;that quarter, capturing six pieces of cannon and
.'mortars. The same advices state the number of
mortars at four pieces.
New Yobk, August 17. Grant's movements on
Sunday show that the main works of the rebels
extend along a commanding ridge covered with for
midable earthworks. Along the crest in front ct
these defensive lines is a series of rifle pits intended
as a strong skirmish line. It proved (no?) effective
obstruction to our advance. Early in the morning a
porticn of cor troops rn the left under command of
Birney, who was in the advance, rushed forward
charging in gallant style, and almost without firing
a shot drove the enemy frcm the rifle-pits, recover
ing the King-land nnd. They captured 100 pris
oners. Ihe enemy retired into their main entrench
ments. During the afternoon cur troops dtove the
enemy from an imrortant petition at Ihe junction of
the Kingland and New Market ronds on the route
' Fester's brigade, by a charge, captured the rebel
guns from Strawberry Plain", and the other troops
advanced upon the roads leading to Richmond. The
cavalry under Gregg took the Charles City road,
whence, after a sharp fnzngement, Hatnptou's
legion was driven in considerable confusion, retreat
ing in a northerly direction. Early in the afternoon
General Barlow and a portion cf his command
charged and took one of the rifle-pits. The enemy
btutborDly resisted with artillery and musketry.
Ntw Yore. August 1C. The Commercial's
ppecial says: " Hancuck'd movement, if successful,
will compel the evacuatiou of Richmond or Peters
burg. Grant will then be in the position to bring
bis forces to b?ar upon the rear.
New York, August 18. Relative to the move
ments at Deep Bottom, the Timet ppecial says :
Tuesday passed with brilliant prcepects of success.
Gregg's cavalry rested their right on the Charles
City road, to protect the right wiug of our forces.
whose left flink extends to the James luver. ine
front cf our line is only about six miles from Rich
mond. Lee being thus held cannot prevent the
cutting of the caual across Dutch G p. and if he
should attempt to mass his forces on either tide cf
t the river, he will trill into great danger. Our l.?ses
on Sunday are estimated at 4UU killed, wcun.leU an!
mining. That of the enemy souuwhit it!-s. Ou
Monday the los of the enemy was gi. atti than ours,
owing lo the more favorable position ou our side.
The fire of Mrtiday wss mo:-tly with musketry.
After we had got on the enemy's 2u.k and turned
him, yesterdiy morning, the artillery cn both bides
was playing rather briskly.
Nkw Yopk, AujruM 19 A Hilton Head letter cf
the 14th reports that a blockade runner got aground
on Sullivan Island, near Fort Moultrie. She was
discovered there iu the morning, and at daylight
was ctened on by cur veescls. The firing was kept
r .. . . i- . r
up until sne was a complete wrecs. .v pomim m
i hercirgowas destroyed with her, but considerable
will be saved bv the tebel wreckers. The tire from
our batteries is Mill kept up cn Fort Sumter and the
city cf Charleston.
Deserters inform us our firing does great damage
and is directed at the weakest points of the fort,
which f ict is attributed to Foster's knowledge of it
while stationed there. The rebels, it is said, express
! great fenr lest the continued bombardment of the
points, by no means impregnable, will u:tim:uciy
interfere with the safety ol their cuL-en.ents, ond
much weaken its defences.
The steamer Prince .ilbert attempted to run into
Charlefcli.ii harbor, but grounded opposite Fort Moul-
! trie, aud our batteries opened heavily upou her,
; reducing her to a total wreck. Her cargo consisted
I of medicines ami other light articles, and was almost
j wholly destroyed. On the night cf the 21, Captain
1 Reed and Lieutenant Stevenson, of the Thirtieth
i Ohio, escajed from Charleston, and reached Battery
j Gregg iu sifety. Six bundled rebel prisoners are to

being that number of our men in 'Charleston.

Nrw Orleans. August 12. A steamer has arrived
from Mobile harbor, which uhe left yesterday morn
ing. Farragut had prepared the tlect for action,
and issue orders to attack Fort Morgan yesterday
morning. It was to receive a furious enfilading fire
from the fleet, aud the land forces me said to have
invested wherever there was a foot of ground to utand
upou. The rebels destroyed all the outbuildings of
the fort, and also burned their tnly vessel lying un-
dcr its guns. Everything about the fort indicated a
j determination to contest the battle to the last. The
! channel to Dog River was unobstructed. The naval
' and land forces are confident of success.
At a late hour last niht, we heard that Farragut
! had demanded nil unconditional surrender of the
j fort, which was refused, the commander of the fort
i sav ing he had six months' provisions and would resist

The New Orleans Kra of the 14th has th follow

As we etated last week, the .object of this new organ
ization is to provide for the sick and destitute mem

a Committee appointed for each. There are now
sixty of these Committees in service, whose duty
it is to look after the sick in their districts. Two
funerals of members occurred the past week, the
expet.ses of which were borne by thc Society. It is
to be hoped that the attentions now paid to the sick
and the fiee fuuerals provided for thc dead, will not
increase the number cf deaths. So fond, however,
are Hawaiian of being the rec'pients of ' benefits,"
and of gaudy displays, that some think they will
not hesitate to die in order to receive such publia
turnouts as are given to them without cost,
