Tue Phesident's Me-saoe President Lincoln's
message was sect to Congress on the fith inst. It is
a remarkably uripa.-:oaeJ d-cucnt. Our For
eign Helations are vtisfactory. Our naval force on
the Lakes is to be incre&reJ. " The public debt on the
first of July was 1 .740,690.4SJ. Our war fleet is
composed of 671 vessels, carrytu 4,610 guns aud
manned by 61,000 men. The blocks J ng fleet has
capt u re-1 324 vessels daring the past year, and 1,300.
including 2C7 steamer-, since the war began. The
Poet Office Depirtmnt is row nearly self-sustaining.
Mr. Lincoln notices favorably the Atlantic and Rus
sian telegraphic projects, as also that of the Paci6e
railroad. The adoption T a free constitution by sct
rl Sive States is favorably commented on, and he
recommends to Congress the passing of a resolution
tf Amendment to the Constitution forever prohibiting
ulaverj within the bounds of the nation. He men
tions the present expedition by Sherman as a mark
ii the progress which the war has made. He declares
the iue between the rebel president and us to be
distinct, simple and inflexible." It is an itsue
which can only be tried by war and decided by vic
tory." He still offers to the people of the South,
however, a general amnesty upon their laying down
their arms. The message thus closes :
lo presenting the abandonment of armed resist
ance to the National authorities on the part of the
insurgents as the only indispensable condition to end
ing the war oo the part of the Government I retract
nothing heretofore said a to slavery. I repeat the
declaration made a year ago. that while I remain in
my present position I shall not attempt to retract
or modify the Emancipation Proclamation, nor shall I
return to slavery any persoa who is free by the terms
of that proclamation or by any A the acts of Con
gress. If the people should, by whatever mode or
means, make it my executive duty to re-enslave such
persons, another, and not I, must be their instru
ment to perform it. In st t;os: single condition of
peace I raean simply to say tbat the war will cease
on the part of the Government whenever it shall have
caed on the part of those who began it " An. pap.

SAT UK DAY, J A. VARY 14.
Thk Legislature was jjrcn.gueJ by tho King,
on Tuesday last, after a eession of nearly three
months, it having convened on the 15th of Octo
ber. The following is His Majesty's address on
the occasion :
i " NoLLiiS AM) IiiTT-Ej-ENTATIVET :
Th- labors of the lII.itive: A-mbl are

many laws have been introJ-cvi which I believe
will J rove highly ndvanta r-i.
The exjerience aiiu-i during the course of the
scsftk.n proves that I was not mistaken in my be
lief that the union of the Nobles and ReT-.-en-tatives
in one Legislative liody, including the
Ministers, would tend to ex edite busincT-. The

Tor your .-nerojky towards my Father and
myself, and fbr your i ve and loyalty towards me

Your labois have been arduous and your dili

country. The sums vou have appropriated to j

happy to know that they are not likely to exceed
Nokles a.vd Representatives :
Your task is ended, not mine ; it will be my
duty to see that the will of the Legislature bo
carried out. In freeing 3u from jour labors
here, I ruy that the blessing of God may attend
you to your honi 'S,and tbat you may personally
enjoy thut prosperity which you have labored to
secure f jt your country.
And I now declare tho Legislative Afsembly to

The present bill, it will be observed, exceeds
by 75,0(0 the total of the previous se.'-sion.
That is quite moderate, and probably within the
regular income ; but even should it exceed tlie
receipts, the credit of the government is good for
any amount. Among the new and large items
will be observed 20,000 for Queen Emma and ! j
Gov. Kekuanaoa ; sSO.000 at the disposal of the
Board of Health, which sum is certainly uffi-
ciciit to take care of every ease of Chine? lepro
sy in the kingdom ; 15,000 for establishing a
government tiewsraper; 12,000 for an Insane
Asylum, and S,000 to complete the Eoyal

On the loth of December, a battle was fought
near Nashville, Tenn., between en. Thomas j
and Gen. Hood, in which the latter, leading the i
rebel3, was defeated with gre-at loss, aitiorg !
i which were o,UU0 rri-oners, Z'J fold pieces, and j
an immense quantity of small f.re arms. I- j

Gen. .Sherman had readied the suburbs of
Savannah with Ids army, in good condition, and
in need of nothing. lie wa in full communi
cation with Admiral Pahlgren's fleet. A de
mand for th;? surrender f the city ;..vi been !
made, and if not implied wit!-, it na to he
U.mbardod. It was probably surrendered on the
13th, as resistance would only bring needless
destruction on the city, for f.ieve were but lew
rebel troots in or around it. It is not at all
likely that Gen. Sherman will remain long at
Savannah, but will rapidly move to Charleston
or some point l.irtiier north. It will be observed
, tJ ,at . n that AJmiral
' Porter left Hampton lioaU. on the 12th Decern-
. ber with a fleet of od voxels. Nothing is said
of his taking many soldiers with him, which
leads to the inference that it is; a transport fleet,
for taking Sherman's armv from Savannah or
Beaufort to some other place. The recent de
monstiations on Aibemorle Sound, North Caro
lina, and the re-captare of Plymouth, in that
State, lead us to infer that that port is his
destination, from whence h will move inland,
take possession of the North Carolina railroads
that supply Lee'd army, and then, along one of
these railroads, move north to co-operate with
Grant, finallv compelling Lee either to fiirht out

way. Never did the Union cause look more j

Much is said at the South about enlisting
and arming the slaves to fight for-

en, inc uiumuii nioj mt, nuiroi,
that moment the Union cause is doubly sure of
success. Slaverv is doomed, and no power on
earth can save it. The guns fired by rebel hands
at Fort Sumter, served to unshackie the chains
of the slaves, more than any other act before
i i -
or since. i.ie imiaueipuuou x toeium.ttiou s.m-
ply seconded and scaled the work begun by
the reliels at Charleston.
Maryland is now a lree Mate, where slavery
can never again exist. And Louisiana has fol-
lowed her example, the poo pi j having ratified
her new constitution, which prohibits lorever
the recognition of property in man; decrees the
education of all children, without distinction of j
race or color; directs all men, whit t; or black, j
to be enrolled uh soldiers for the public defense ; i
imtkes ail men equal before the law ; and com- I

beneficent efforts of your success.
I came also to see a gteat political crisis. Would
that all those who love and all those who mistrust
free institutions, could have seen it also ! Would that
they could have witnesed as I have the majes'ic
c ihnness with which under circumstances the most
perilous and exciting, the national decision has been
pronounced. Here is no anarchy, no military dicta
torship. In the midst of civil war a civilian is re
elected as President by a constitutional process as
tranquil as an English Sabbath day. And no king is
more secure in the allegiance cf his subjects than is
the PresMeut in the allegiance of all even those
who voted against him beneath his elective rule.
I would, too, that the English people could wit
ness as I witne3 the spirit cf humanity which retains
its power over all the passions of civil war, notwith
standing the greatest provocations; aud the absence.
which has rr.Ost forcibly struck roe during my rest
ence here, of any bloodthirsty sentiment or any led- j
ir.g of malignant hatred towards those who are now '
Tr 'Tn Jli,1, ho, when they
ly welcome as ftllow-citlrens, and receive back into '
the full communi. n of the free. Many a prejudice, j
many an error would be dis-peiled, many a harsh j
judgment would be cancelled, many a bitter word j
recalled, if only my countrymen could behold with j
their own eyes what I have beheld and now behold." j

1 2f" B.ith the Comet and the Smymiote, like an
auctioneer's last call, have been going, oing" all
the week, but are still in port- The calm that has
prevailed has kept out the echocntrs expected with
cargoes f.r them. Both the King's Yacht from Hilo,
and the ICalama from Kauai, ought to arrive to-day.

rate cf Jive ceis, which a now the sum charged, as
will L eeui bv refertLce .o the Post-cfSce notice in
our co'uu:us. Owing to these cbaugts. and the fact
j that stamps have cot been obtaiuable of late at San
Franc:co, except in small quantises, the Post t See
here has been unable to furnish American stamps.
This want will soon be renudl?d probably. All let

American f..r single letters. Then no further post
ages can be collected ou them. If the full American
postage is not prepiii, those receiving the letters are

I on the first of January 1865, Dr. L II. Gulick be-
j coming editor and publisher. Its size and general
features remain pretty much as formerly, though we
observe some improvement in its appearance. It is
the uuentKn cf t
u c'u' par-
J .s, songs, an
the iiuentiin cf the Editor to make it a po: ular and
r, to give publicity to Hawaiian
ancient tales, as well as a medium for
oca! and foreign news. The two first numbers are
i issued, and the paper already shows evidences of im
provement, and we trust its circulation will be large
ly increased. Such a paper ought to be encouraged
and aided by every foreigner, who can read the
j Hawaiian language, or who bus Hawaiians in his
employ. A new feature has been introduced, which
j outiht before to have been done giviug more or less
Kngiish reading, with translations of the same. The
price is Two Dollars (S2.00) ts formerly.
Tua Glass Blowers. During the past week, our

Glass and glassware are so common everywhere, that
nobody ever thinks of the origin, or the mode in

ever, shows how glass-ware 19 manufactured, and in

The chitf difficulty to be apprehended in connection
