' We continue, on our fourth age, the pub

.a Ait t in.enl chapter 'i4th of the I't-nai Code.
An Act to a:i:end St-vtloti 610 of tl.e Civil Code.
Au Act t make a permanent settlement on Her Majesty
Qj'.-er Km ma. . .
The first is the most important one. ns it in
etitutes an entire chune in the form of foreign
invoices, which hereafter will require a Consular
Ctriificat? of their correctness. On Invoices
lej-s than 500, the cost of ihe certificate will
be one dollar, on all over that sum, the fee will
be two dollars. This new regulation will take
effect at our Custom-houses on the 21-Kt of April
next, with all Invoices from the Pacific coast of
North America; on the 21 et of July on all In
voices from Europe or the Atlantic side of North
America, and on the 21st of Jan. Try, ll?C0,
on Invoices from all other countries. In cases
where goods are entered without Hitch certifi
cates, they are to he upprnis'd at one-fourth
more than the invoice, and duty collected on the
whole sum. The law may prove a good one,
and prevent impositions on tl;e revenue. The
chief objection is the short time allowed for
merchants to notify their correspondents, as it
is quite impossible to send to Europenn or even
Eastern American torts so as to have these
certifieatfs on all invoices entering after six
months. Twelve months would have been the
proper term for such, and four to sis months for
Pacific coa.-t invoices.
This law, as we understand it, does not super
cede the regulation requiring Consular Certifi
cates of" the value of gold on invoices from the
Atlanti.j United States. The main objection to
that is the large fee of five dollars demanded
for such e;rtifi-:ato, especially when it applies
to email invoices ; but as it is a customs regula
tion merely, we suppose the rates can be changed
at any time that the authorities see fit. The
fees charged und.-r this law are reasonable, and
the charges on the oM certificates should cor
ropond with them.
The new law facilitating the proof on Mar
riage, requires every j-ers on authorized to perform
the iiiarri:ii;e ceremony, to keep a record of the
same, which shall always be aeees-dble when
required in courts. Neglect of the law renders
such person liable to a fine of fifty dollars.
Another law vests in authors or publishers the
corv-riirht of all books published bv them, un- i
d. r ,.r,.w,.r;i.M r.-nl .t 5ons Tin- Y.Cvc U .a v.;,, !
an 1 jut one, for a man's riht t- the product of j
his brain is as sacred as that of his hands. The
propriety of such a law has been increasing
every year, and its necessity may Iks inferred
from th fact that the English Minion has re
cently ublished a small hymn-book in Hawaii
an, most of the hymns in which have been ex
tracted, (we will not use any harsher word)
without permission, from the Hawaiian Hymns,
which are as much the private property of the
puhlSsdifcr as any other he may have.
The Act to provide for the importation of
Laborers and for the Encouragement of Immi
gration is a good one, and is amply sufficient to
provide all the labor necessary, bo it from India,
China, Europe or anywhere else. If we have
not hereafter an abundance of laborers, the fault
must lie with the Ministry, which is fully em
powered to provide them.
Several other laws will ho fl-und, of less gene-
ral importance than those referred to. The sum 'i
of 6,000 per annum is secured to Queen Em
ma, in Consideration of ber relinquishing all j
olaini or dower in the estate of the late King or j
in the Crown lands, which aro to bo hereul'tt-r j
Considered as inalienable. j
The laws of the Kingdom should b3 read
bv every subject and by cvtry -erson resid
ing in it, that there may be no excuse for igno
rance of them
A knowledge of them will often !

Could anything be more cheering to every
man who loves peace, and to every American,
wlu desires the restoration of the Union and the
Sovereignty of its government over the rebel
lious itats than the welcome news brought
by the Daring on Wednesday last? The stir
ring words of " peace restored" could hardly
be more sj than tho result which each succeed
ing arrival makes ruvre sure. None deplore the
more than Americans in Hawaii nci, but ,'
none, we are sure, are more earnest in praying
that it may never cease till the national author
ity is re-ct-tablished over every rood of territory
that belongs ta the Union. It is not a war of
aggreferflm, el.se the people might justly rise.
and demand its termination ; but it is a war of
self-preservation, the first requirement of which j
is the utter extinction of the unruly element of i

This plainly contradicts the statements before
made by the Southern papers that he was in
want of everything, and trying hard to escape
from his critical situation. On the contrary,
his.inarcii from Atlanta to Savannah, through a
country nominally hostile, constitutes one of the
most splendid and triumphal campaigns .ever
undertaken hy any General one that will chal
lenge the admiration of the world, as it has that
of the London Times, which says : Sherman's
movement in Georgia may he compared to the
Duke of Marlborough's march into Germany,
which resulted in the battle of Blenheim. Noth
ing in modern times equals it. It will either
make Sherman the must famous General, or may
ruin him and his army.
The battle of Ilochstadt or Blenheim, was
fought Aug. 13, 1704, between the English and
Austrians on one side and the French and Bava
rians on the other, in which the latter were de
feated. An aecount of it wiil he found in
my English or French history of the wars of the
Spanish succession, or iu the life of the Duke of
On reaching Savannah, and occupying it,
Sherman sent the following Napoleonic message
to the President :
Savannah, lec. 2'2. To His Kxccl'ency President
Lincoln : I te to present you with a Chriitmas
gilt. The city of Savauuab, with a hundred and
fifty heavy guns, plenty of ammunition. :tr.d about
twenty-Sve thousand bales of cotton. Shehman.
There is one noticeable fact about Sherman's
campaign, that he has not allowed any wanton ;
destruction of private property, but only what !
might serve to aid the rebel armies, such as rail- j
roads, and army stores of all kind. We inTer j
this from the face that, had he done otherwise, ,'
there would have been a great deal said about it i
hy the rebel papers. j
The feat of GVn. Hardee, in challenging Gen.
Sherman, when a surrender of Savannah was i
demanded, to fight it out to the bitter Tid or tr ,
the ' list ditch," and then skedaddling under !
cover of the night, is only equalled by Floyd's j
heroic, bravery, when summoned by G -n. Grant '

letting his superior officer know of it,- Floyd I
qui.-tly slipped off with his regiment, and left ;
the latter and his men to surrender when they j
got ready, which they did shortly after. j
It is stated in the advices that Gen. Sherman
intended returning inland, and capturing An- '
gusta, and would then move o Charleston, j
By reference to a map, it will be s;' n that the j
route is easy and along the turnpike and railroad !
routes. When Charleston and Wilmington ;
are taken, as they will be soon, the forces not
required to garrison them, will be marched
through South and North Carolina towards j
Richmond, where a final demonstration will he j
made, not to ttorm the city, but to surround
and eoniT:l a surrender of Lee's army and I
whatever there :nav be left of the rebellion. !

; close tho last port where blockade-runners can
gain an entrance, the prizes for the last few
weeks having been worth not lees than a million
of dollars per week. No loss than fourteen fast
steamers were waiting at Nassau, at latent dates,
for a chance to run the blockade. Their occu
pation is probably gone.
The news from Mexico indicates that trouble
may spring up between that government and
i the British on account of the claim? of the
former on Honduras.

i ) A New i'-umi Ou the passage of the missionary
packet .Venning Star from the Micronesian Islauds
to this port, Capi. Gelett discovered a new Island,
located in North latitude 24a 4', and East longitude
lpP 2', or about S00 miles N. N. E. from Guam.
On the evening of December 16, he observed numer
ous Ian 1-birds, which increased in number the next
morning, and remarked that land must be near by,
which was discovered t.t S P. M. of the 17th. The
Island 19 about five miles long, densely covered with
trees and ehrubbery, with a white sand beach, and
risea in a knoll at the ceuter, perhars two hundred
feet above the sea. The brig passed within three or
four miles of it about sunset, and breakers were seen
! all around. There were no sigus of inhabitants ltv-
ing on it, though ail Lands on board kept a close
lookout. A raef extends to the North of the island.
On the old Admiralty charts a doubtful Island is
i noted in the vicinity cf the cne discovered, but on
j Wilkes' American chart and on Luray's London
chart none is laid down witliia 10') miles of the spot.
The disiovery of this fertile island is important, aud
in reliab'e. We propose to name it Gclltt Islaxd,
ia honor of the Captain ot the hi i. It ought to be
visited by some war vessel, and fally explored. It
j liej directly in tho track of whalers bound from
Ascension to the Ochotek or Arctic.
-Personal. Among the pas-iencers by the ship
Euena Vista, which left port on Saturday tast for
Australia, was Mr. John II Barnard, v?hu, with his
family, returns to that country to rtsiJo. Ir. Ii.
' came to Honolulu about fir'teen years ago, aud for
! some years occupied the cf5ce if Secretary of the
I British Legatiou. For the pa?t ten years he h.ts been
clerk of the i'upreine Court, a position which he
filled with honor to himself an! satisfaction to fl.c
: Govermoent. Very few of our foreign residents
j made greater efforts or expend;?! more to ititroduce
exotic fruits hu I trees than M. . B. Of grape vines
alone he hud over one hundred and fift kinds
while of other rare trees, he had on bis lace, an end
less variety. AV wish him a pleasiut voya,e to his
Nkw Paf-hr. According to not'c? given in cur
last week's issue, the first u umber of a new govern"
ltient orgau, to be called the ILticaiian Gazette, will
be issued to-day. If restricted solely to government
service, such ns ihe promulgation of c-f5ci.il orders,
proclamations, notiets, larvs, &c., &c , ns we under
stand it is to be, its tMUance encs a month, or twice a
mcnth at the most, eay on the 1st .and loth, would
meet all requirements of t fie public service.

Matuematical. Since the arrival of Professor An
drews. the ruathematician, almost every one has
turned his attention to figures, and as a consequence
problems in interest, profit and los, percentage. &C,
are all the go. The Professor's theories and practice
are deservhig of acquisition, especially his mode of
computing interest, which is exceedingly simple,
short, and one which any child can learn. During
the week, a gentleman has proposed a question which
appears to have puizled some of the skillful arithme
ticians. It is this :
What sum wii! give 1 more at sl:cp!e interest than at com
pound iuterest.for four mouths, at 5 percent. Interest per sunuiaf
This sum is feund in Thompson's Aiithmetic, pub
lished in Dublin, 1S34, and is evidently ptrfirmtd
by a rule not given in American atithn.etics. The
answer is between three and four thousand pounds.
i ste need I)0t SstdtC exactly what.
The Professor hands us in a sum, and whoever j
solves it, as per answer in our bands, will be in
structe 1 in his system gratuitously, or have his money
refunded, if be has been taught.
