" Gen. Grant stated that 100.000 men had been

peaceably if they choose, but forcibly if they refuse.
The situation of Mexico he looked upon as one which
had been created by the rebellion, and the rebellion
would really not be overcome until Maximilian were
compelled to depart, and the Mexican people allowed
to organize a Government without foreign interfer
ence. With regard to the relations between the
United States and England, he did not think the
present friendly state would be disturbed, unless
complications ensued by reason of England's mixing

2f Drunkenness among the Hawaiians. tlie
boat-boys in particular, is getting to be of fre
quent occurrence and is a great nuisance, and
j the question is where do they procure their
j liquor ? When the police are blamed for not put
I ting a stop to it, they answer that they cannot get
evidence to convict a person of celling liquor to
natives; that the natives will not inform. This
may be very true, but we question if an in
ventive genius could not obtain the evidence, par
ticularly when he can almost any day see natives
going soberly into grog-shops and coming out of
them in a state of boisterous drunkenness. We
have frequently heard Government officials say we
want a law to thn and that effect, and immediately
make a note of it for the next Legislative Assem
bly. This is very proper, but why not first en
force what laws we have, and if their enforcement
is to no good end, let them be repealed and others
substituted. We venture the opinion that the
cause of three-fourths of the cases that come be
fore the Police Court can be traced to liquor, and
in many of them to liquor sold in violation of the
law of the Kingdom.
The Hawaiian ship lolanl. of Brewer JL Co 'a
Boston Line, arrived on Wednesday last, in 145
days from Boston. From her first officer we ob
tained the following- memoranda : Left Boston on
the 2Cth May ; was IJ3 days to the line in the Atlan
tic ; crossed in Long. 32 3 W.; from the ine to
S. in the Atlantic was 35 days ; from thence to
50 in the Pacific wai 16 days ; from thence to the
line was 33 days ; crossed in Long. llb W.;
from the line into port was 28 days. Experienced
good weather all the voyage. Made Hawaii five
days before getting into port. The lolanl is dis
charging cargo, in fine condition, on the Esplanade.
By the Smyrnlote, we were in receipt of
the proof of a new Hawaiian five-cent postage
stamp, executed by tlie "American Bank Note
Company" for the Postmaster-General. The stamp
is printed in blue ink, and is one of the neatest
extant. The engraver haa executed the centre fig
ure, portrait of His Majesty Kamehameha V., with
singular fidelity to the Carte do Visite of the origi
nal which was enclosed with the order.
235 Some little time since a native was tip be
fore the Police ifagistrate for cruelty to animals,
having tied a hor?e out of reach of feed for some
three or four day9. Br the suggestion of a gentle
man in this city, we would call the attention of
those in authority to the appearance of animals
confined in the Pound iu Pauoa Valley, where they
may see legalized cruelty to animals.
Circus Co vivo. By Snn Francisco pnpers re
ceived, we learn that Wilson's Mammoth Cireua"'
will be in thin city shortly. The California papers
are loud in their expressions of admiration of the
performances f this establishment, and the public
here will no doubt appreciate tlie performances of
such artisfes as Ella Zoyara, Boss and Carlo, James
Cooke, Olma, Barry and Mile. Gemma.
jjKF By last advices, we learn that the American
Government had detailed the iron-clad MonadnOck,
and steamers Vandtrbilt and Tuscarora to join the

fleet here from time to time.
Jtff On Monnay morning at two o'clock, a very

The population of the State of New York amounts,
by the appearance of the present returns, to 4,350,
000. This is about the population of England in
the time of Elizabeth; is nearly the present popula
tion of Bavaria, and 700,000 more thau that of the
Kingdom of Holland.
The plan of the Kentucky rebels and conserva
tives, so lately developed, is to elect a majority of
the Legislature, repeal the expatriation law, form a
State guard, to be filled up by returned rebel sol
diers, and with this force re-enslave the freed ne
groes. Blackwood's Magazine saya of England : " No
toriously we have neither cannon for our batteries,
ships-of-war, nor fire-arms in the hands of our
troops capable of contending on equal terms with
those of other nations." It is obviously getting to
be fly-time with Mr. Bull.
A West Indian paper professes to know of a sov

Consistently. The same court and jury which de
clared Miss Harris not guilty of the murder of Bur
roughs, one week condemned Horatio Malouey to
eight years imprisonment for stabbing a faithless

derstood the jury would have acquitted him."
It is reported that Beauregard will soon arrive in
New York on his way to Europe, having received
permission to go on condition that he will never again
take up arms against this country. The rumor also
states that it is supposed he will enter the French

It is said that eighty plantations in Ixmisiana have
recently been confiscated. These embrace many of
the finest sugar estates of the Southern country. Mr.

Some speculator has secured the ashes resulting

A New Orleans paper says the property of John

20,000 persons under instruction.
The New Bedford Standard understands that a
leading member of the bar in that city refused a re
tainer from the party seeking to break down Miss
Howland's will. He declared that there was no
ground for the case to stand on, and that he con

on so many deserving individuals and on the commu

A telegram dated St. Petersburg, July 26. says
that the plan for a telegraphic line between Russia
and America has been approved and signed by the
Czar. The Russian government undertake to com

the charge of the American company.
' The London Times, which proclaimed the United
States hopelessly bankrupt before the close of the
first year of the war, sings now to thi9 tune : We
do not suppose that the debt of the United States,
great as it is, will crush the energies of the American
people. They have overcome greater difficulties, and
are not likely to be deterred by the less."
The Epocha of Madrid complains of the recent
emigration from Cuba to the United States, and is
alarmed at the proportion which it assumes. It
states that during the last six months fifteen millions
of reals, nearly two millions of dollars, have left the
island to be invested in cotton land in Florida, South
and North Carolina.
Moee About Jeff. Davis. The Washington cor
respondent of the New York Times says that those
that know how Jeff. Davis is treated, how he looks
ar d deports himself, and what is the state of his
health, are very much amused with the imaginary
pictures drawn concerning these matters by certain
correspondents of New York and Philadelphia papers.
The writer says that the food furnished the rebel
chief is such he can eat with relish. He doesn't
have strawberries and cream, nor boned turkey and
mince pie, but he does have tea and coffee, beef and
other meats, vegetables and cigars, and he makes no
complaint whatever of any deprivation. It is not
true that no one speaks to Davis. With Gen. Miles
and Dr. Craven he converses freely, but never on
military or political affairs, such reservation being a
matter of his own choice. He receives letters from
his family and those of sympathy and advice from
other quarters, although none of the latter have been
given to him.
A Race Ef.rwK.rN Iron Clam. The Dictator and
Agamenticus, had an exciting race from Boston to
Portsmouth. They arrived off Portsmouth harbor,
the Dictator forty minutes ahead, notwithstanding
the bursting of a tube in one cf her boilers, which
rendered for the time comparatively useless. The
Asainenttcuz also claims to have been under some
disadvantages, owing to bad coal, &c. From Ports
mouth to Portland the monitors will have another
trial of speed, and the friends of the Dictator believe
that within that distance she can beat the Agamen
ticus out of eight. The Dictator is said to have
worked admirably cn her passage round to Ports
mouth. Facts for Haters of Shiftless Negroes."
Nearly thirty thousand negroes have been settled by
General Saxton on the islands and adjacent planta
tions of South Carolina. Of these, seventeen thou
sand are now self supporting. Between twelve and
thirteen thousand of those who have come in latest
from the interior still draw rations, but all do it
with the distinct understanding that they and their
farms will be held responsible for the repayment ;
and the experience of the Government with the
others shows that this debt may be reckoned a safe
and short one. None have beeu forced to come, and
the locations upon the plantations have all been
made to the satisfaction of the negroes themselves.
Nothing can exceed the brutality of an English
election. Foreign exchanges say that at Carlisle,
' Mr. Law son concluded his address amid a perfect
shower of missiles, accompanied with the most ter
rific howlings." Mr. Potter concluded his amid a
fusilade of powder aud unclean things." When
Mr. Hodgson presented himself, the uproar be
came so terrific as to threaten serious consequences.
Some one in the crowd discharged a pistol, and
stones beginning to supply the place of soot and
and ochre, &c, blood was drawn in several parts cf
the crowd. The Mayor, after frequently retiring to
the Town Hall for momentary Bhelter, directed the
police to clear the space in front of the hustings.
The police endeavored to do so without effect, and
the rioting continued, during which it was impossi
ble for .Mr. Hodgson to obtain a bearing.' When it
was announced that the "show of hands" was in
favor of Mr. Hodgson, the hustings was almost im
mediately cleared by missiles, the favors of the mob
being showered with particular aim at the Mayor,
who, with the other gentlemen on the hustings, was
covered with powder of all colors blue, yellow,
black, white and green. The candidates were piti
lessly assailed, heavy bags of whiting and soot com
ing repeatedly in their faces, and but for the shelter
of strong and friendly umbrellas, it must have re
suited in serious personal injury. The proceedings
were throughout of the most riotous and unseemly
character; a constant shower of colored powder-bags,
soot-bags, potatoes, rotten eggs and stale butchers'
offal being poured upon the candidates and their

The Great South American War.
Nk.w York, Sept. 17. The Buenos Ayres journals
contain some further very interesting items concern
ing the Paraguayan war. There is said to be much
apathy regarding it among the people of the Argen
tine Confederation , who at e slow in joining the army.
In order to stir them up Gen. Urguza, formerly their
President, Lai issued a proclamation in which he
says he considers the contest against Paraguay so
sacred that he would go to join the legion kd the
field, even if he ehould be deserted by his own chil
dren; meantime the Government has made arrange
mentn for raising troops in Europe, in order to drive
the Paraguayans out of the Brazilian province of the
Rio Grande. The Emperor has ordered that every fit
man there must be put under arms, aud 30,000 from
other provinces mus-t be moved at once and assist
them. President Lopez, of Paraguay, is displaying
most extraordinary vigor in his efforts to meet the
assaults of the powers by which he is assailed.
Every man and boy capable of service is being put
in the army, and the necessary agricultural work is
to be done by women. It is thought that Lopez has
nearly one hundred thousand men under arms. He
is well supplied with material of excellent character.
New Yobk, Sept. 17. The Tribune's Matamoras
correspondent, August 22d,says the term of office of
President Juarez expires on the 30th of November
next. Among the men of the Liberal party General
Ortega is said to be a very fit man for the place. At
this crisis be will find himself beset with all sorts of
wants, first among which is money. The treasury
and army chests are empty. His first care will be to
fill them; then raise a foreigu force of from ten to
twenty thousand men, about which a native army of
from thirty to fifty thousand may be raised. The
friends of the Liberal cause in the North are in hopes
that Gen. Ortega has been able to do something in
New York. The same correspondent, writiog from
Camargo. says the Liberal force under orders of Gen.
Escambado has come to this place after sharp fight
ing with the enemy near the San Juan river, result-.
ing in a defeat to them of some consequence.
Gen. Escambado marched to attack a body of men
escorting a conduct of specie going from Monterey in
the direction of Matamoras. The escort left the train
at Cadvilla to march to the aid of Matamoras, which
the officer in command heard was being attacked by
a strong force of Liberals on the 16th. It was at
tacked by a column of 4,000 (?) men, whom Gen.
Escambado.detached from his camp. In the pursuit
the enemy were drawn upon the left bank of the San
Juan river, at a post called Pasco de Lacobias. Ilia
force consisted of about 600 of all arms, with a half
battery. After""four hours fight they were driven
from the position and put to flight. They saved their
artillery, and only a small body, which could not
exceed 200 men, kept its order.
Among the dead which remained on the field were
found the late rebel Gen. Parsons and six of his
men. One hundred and forty prisoners were taken
by the Liberal force, and car loads of arms, provi
sions and ammunition. One hundred stand of arms
were gathered upon the field. The loss of the Libe
ral force was one commandant and six men killed,
and two Commandants, five officers and forty-five
men wounded. It is possible now for a large force
to be gathered along the line of the San Juan river,
and it is likely the force under Gen. Negrete will now
come down to unite with that iu and about here, in
which case a force of 7000 men could be concentrated.
This would be strong enough for an attaok upon the
enemy at Matamoras. In these two places a million
and a half of dollars could be raised. With that the
Liberal Generals would have means to increase their
forces and march against other points.
A Matamoras correspondent of the 25th says :
We learn from a direct source that the force under
orders of General Escambado amounts to about
twenty-five hundred men, five hundred of whom are
in Camargo, under General Esctanore. That place
is at present the headquarters of the forces. A party
of twenty-one young men, who had been in the
United States in the late rebellion, went up to Ca
margo yesterday, along with General Escambado and
Staff, to serve as officers in the Liberal army. A
legion of five thousand men could be easily raised for
the cause. There is a want of ammunition felt by
the forces in the North; they having only one hun
dred thousand rounds of ball cartridges, and about
five hundred thousand caps. This would give only
fifty rounds for each man, and there is a great deal
of firing in Mexican warfare. A fight of seven
hours duration would spend it. I have reason to
think that an attack will soon be made upon this
Maximilian. If recent advices from English
sources are to be credited the Mexican question will
soon meet with a solution very much like a dissolu
tion. Not finding the ancestral halls of the Monte
zumas favorable to his health, the Emperor went to
Puebla, but although on his arrival the streets were
full of people, not a hand or voice was raised in his
welcome, except from some English contractors on
the Vera Cruz railway. From the moment of his
entrance into a country he did not understand, and
the political affairs of which were a puzzle to much
nearer spectators than the Austrian pretender, he has
experienced the fate of those who heartily embrace
no bide, and is hated by all. He has neglected the
Liberals who were mainly instrumental in bringing
him thither, and has not reformed any of the clerical
abuses under which the country groans.
Among other laws which he sought to enforce was
one for the suppression of convents and monasteries
by the process of natural extinction; that is, such
establishments would be suffered to stand until the
existing nuns and monks died out, but no recruit9
were to be allowed to join them. In epite of this
law, however, girls have openly taken the veil, and
no attempt has been made to prevent their doing so.
The machinery for the detection and punishment of
crime is equally loose.

New York, Sept. 8. The World correspondent
from Dublin, Ireland, says: Fenianism is at last
spreading where it can do much good or evil. Agents
have been iu Ireland, and in an indescribably short -space
of time created the most terrible excitement.
Not only here, but throughout the entire kingdom,
the greatest alarm prevailed among the priesthood,
the majority of whom, though opposed to the English
rule, denounce from the pulpit the Fenian Brother
hood. Their opposition against that order, in fact,
alienates the people from the priesthood. They favor
any movement against Eogland. either moral or
provisional, but it must, they say, originate with
them aud be guided by them.
We now hear ot drilling all over the country;
some places in squads, and in ethers by entire regi

time of it. Of late the authorities, ia many in

the Fenians were drilling. Tbey are kept constant

their enemy. Only three collisions thus far have

The young men in various part of Dublin have
clubbed together and subscribed money, and as they
cannot afford to go into the country and encamp
there for several days, they have hired halls where
they are taught in the military drill. The constabu

either dare or will not interfere, and pretend not to

The recent election in England for members of the
House of Commons, derives its prinoipal interest to
Americans, from the fact that Tom Brown" has
been returned from Lambeth, John Stuart Mill from
Westminister, and Mr. Gladstone from South Lanca
shire. All these men are staunch friends to the
United States, and distinguished in the world of
letters, philosophy and statesmanship. Mr. Glad
stone, to whom the Bigns of the times point unerring
ly as the successor of Lord Palmerston, formerly
represented Oxford, the so-called seat of English
learning, and the very home of a pig-headed conser
vatism which hoetelieea all progress, and opposes all
reform, while it contributes nothing in the world of .
politics or the sphere of ideas to the advancement of
mankind, physically or morally, and but little intel
lectually. Mr. Gladstone, moving, albeit slowly,
with the spirit of the age, was not a fitting represen
tative of musty and fungus-grown Oxford, to the
influence of which we may trace whatever was de
biiitating in his mental composition, and hesitating
or dubious in his conduct. As the representative of
an active, living constituency like that of South
Lancashire, both the representative and the repre
sentation will reach each other, and Mr. Gladstone,
relieved of an incubus, rise fully to the measure of
the position for which the nation and the suffrages of
the world have designated him that of Prime Aiio
ister of Great Britain.
There are rumors afloat of a new European Con
ference a Congress of the so-called Great Powers of
Europe. The London Spectator does not admire the
scheme, and pithily remarks that the consciousness
that a seventh great power, impregnable at home and
very formidable abroad, will stand aside indifferent
but prepared, must tend to increase the consciousness
that its decisions will but slightly affect the facts.

In the late English elections, the aggregate Liberal
vote was 19-1.924, the aggregate Tory vote 178,787;
Liberal majority, 10.187. When it is considered
that only about one in seven of the intelligent men
of Great Britain have the right of suffrage, it must
be concluded that democratic ideas are making
pretty rapid advancement in the kingdom.
An English holder of Confederate cotton bonds,,
which are mentioned aa being worth 74, writes to
the London JVews that when the proper time arrivea
he has no doubt whatever that each of the S'atea
lately confederated will take upon itself its propor
tion of the cotton bonds unliquidated, which amounts
to little over 2,000.000. John Bull, aa an encour
agement to his sccesh friends to do this thing, saya
that if it is done the act of honesty will induce
English moneyed men to give the Southern States aa
much money on loan as will repair the ravages of
the war; but. this reconstructive inducement will
not serve to either increase the value of the rebel
securities or encourage their payment. The Taurian
speculator has been stuck" very essentially.
In a recent trial for poisoning, in England, where
the guilty person, a physician. Dr. Pritchard, of
Glasgow, had poisoned his wife and mother, a
brother physician who had been called in to attend
the mother while dying, testified vthat he suspected
and believed that she was poisoned by her son, but
did not impart his suspicions, any further than by a
letter to the Register that the death was " sudden,
unexpected and mysterious," for the reasona that it
might not have been safe, and that it was against
etiquette for him to interfere! Two other physi
cians, with whom he had consulted, agreed with
him on this matter of " professional decorum !"
This instance rather beats the Cambridge student
who stood on the banks of the Cam, wringing his
hands, and lamenting that he could not jump in
and save a drowning man because he had not had
an introduction to him. Etiquette is a great thing.

The English Quern. The continued, and it is
now supposed permanent abstinence of Her Majesty
from all public festivities causes great dissatisfaction
in London. Recently a further cause of dissatisfac

received who went to Windsor to present ad 1 Teases
of congratulation on the birth of the young Prince.
Tbey received not a word of encouragement in reply,
but kissed hands and moved on" the answers

erection of another of those memorials to the Prince

upon the Athenians.
Tue Pirate Shenandoah An affidavit of John
Wilson, the carpenter of the Shenandoah, who has
entered suit against the English agents for tho re
covery of his wages, be having shipped in her when
she left England to take in her armament, famishes
an authentic history of this pirate, which is now
spreading havoc among the whaleships in the Pacific.
It was published in the London papers last January,
and states that the first owner of the Shenandoah
then called the Sea King:, was William Wallace, a
London banker, who sold her in September last to
Richard Wright, of Liverpool, a near connexion of
the rebel agent in that city. In the same month,
Peter S. Corbett was endorsed as master of the ship.
Last October, the owner, Richard Wright, issued to
Corbett, the master, a certificate of sale, empowering
Corbett to Bell the Sea King at any port out of the
United Kingdom for not less than 45,000. On the
morning of the 6th of October, 1864, the Sea King
cleared from London for Bombay, in ballast, and as
an ordinary merchant vessel. On the same day, the
British ship Laurel, the property of blockade-runners,
cleared from Liverpool for Nassau, laden with
heavy cannon, arms, fifty or sixty barrels of powder,
and bearing some rebel officers. Wilson, a Scotch
man, had engaged as carpenter on the Sea King,
in good faith, supposing that she was going to
Bombay and other ports in the Indian and Pacifio
Oceans as a merchantman. His affidavit shows that
the Sea King went immediately from London to
Madeira. That there she fell in with the Laurel,
and that the two ships went in company to the Island
of Porto Santo, where, in Portuguese waters, the
armament and stores were shifted from the Laurel
to the Sea King, And that Captain Corbett there an
nounced to the crew that he had sold the ship to the
BO-called Confederates, and that she was to destroy
American ships, especially whalers. He also intro
duced to them, as the new captain, an officer in a
gray uniform, whom he invited them to join. Nearly
all refused to do so. The rebel flag was then hoisted,
such of the crew as would not join were put on the
Laurel, and the Sea King, having become the
Shenandoah, started on her new career. Some of
the seamen who refused to go to eea in the Shenan
doah make a similar affidavit.
