Tub arrival during ibe we of ike .Votes Toyor from
fan Francwco, and the Nevada frun the cUcxnes, haa been al
traded by the uuaj ir nj traaite amongst our merchants
and Xtri, Iul aside frmn the transactions connected with

aiiire cur Lm rort-
Mr. W. H. Webb, the proprietor of the mal line now con
tacting our port with San Francisco aud the colonies, visited
u on liU way to New Zeabuul ami. Australia, and during hia
khnrl slay nere bad an Interview w itb the Cabinet oilier rs, in
relation to tbe continuance of the mail service by I.U line.
Duma; the time thai Mr. Wetb baa betn ruiinin hia steam
ers, it ill be arimiiud on all "hands that the traffic and pas
aenprr demands hare been fully met. So much ao that the
steamer ruxiiuig between the coast and Honolulu hare be
rosae fcivorites with the traveling public
Lclwttu Auckland and llunolulu the Nevada haa proved
herself to I admirably fitted fur tbe service be haa been
railed upon to periorin. She haa now made seven round tripa,
runnii't; a distance of nearly 33,000 milra, at an average apeed
of 10i knots per h'-ur or 2 milea per day, without having her
boilera cooled once aince leaving Pan Francisco on her first
trip to Aur!and, and without an accident to her machinery of
any description. Mr. Webb's well known ability, integrity,
and experience are sufficient guarantees that be will fulfill all
obi gallons entered into ; and in that respect the manner in
which the service has been conducted in the past warrants ua
in predicting its efficiency under his management in the future.
The question as to how much of a subsidy this Government
ought to pay is one that remains ur.der discussion, and any
decisive action will be postponed until the result of the nego
tiations between Mr. Webb and the colonial governments be-cors-
known. The amount that has been granted heretofore
(2,000 per month) may seem to be very small, but to it must
be added the amount remitted on account of wharfage, water,
Ac , say 16,000 per annum, and In view ol our position we
are not at all certain that the line would not come bere with
out a aubsidy and with all the fees to pay.
The adverse decision lately rendered in rtgard to the rights
of aucuooeeia to charge cost of advertisements of goods pro
rat's amongst consignors of all goods so:d on the dates adver
tised, lias had the effect of bringing out a card from oar Ho
nolulu auctioneers, declaring their intention of charging such
costs as usual. In auction sales but little baa been doing.
Tlx brig Kamekamtka V. was offered last Saturday and hid
in. &ne will probably be put on tbe coasting tine soon.
I'imJt New York dates of November 9Ji we notice
Price of gold. 111 J. The demand fcr money is easier, the
disturbance growing out of the Chicago fire subsiding. The
action taken by tbe German Government in demanding gobl
from France in payment of the indemnity cannot (ail to affect
the entire commercial world. The anint demanded repre
sent a larjrr sum than there exists in England and America
combined, and in consequence the Engti-h who have taken the
loan largely will be obliged to borrow from Germany the gold
to pay with.
From the Market Review of tbe th inst. we quote:
r?i oa Firm. Sales of 500 kegs Hawaiian at 912c per
Wool Shipping grades at 224226c per pound. Tbe pros
pects are that wool baa touched the highest figure and baa
prolwbly receded some by Ibis time. !n this connection we
would remark that there seems to be a grow lug necessity lor
tbe importation of wool from Australia to tbe I'niteal Stales.
This seems to arise mainly from the pressing wants of con
sumers, and we notice that the Americana are free buyers of
g-nj.1 l:ghl greasy wools.
The two next steamers to Sao Francisco we understand are
eng.iged full of wool at ) cent, per pound, to take tbe railroad
with California wool at 2 cents per pcuod lor the eastern fac-

W clip the following from tbe Skreveport La ) Journal t
Psofits or TM SsMlt Plsht. The practical difficulties
attendant upon ibe manipulation of the ramie fibre seem to be
disappearing, as we And that ibis substance is now quoted in
the Liverpool market at JXr in gold per Ion. At this price it
is said to be considerably more profitable than cotton. Its ad
vantages, as claimed, lie in its ready and vigorous growth it
ctmiinues from year to year, and, once planted, it requires no
renewal or attention for a long lime. It is said not to be de
stroyed by worms, not to suffer from peculiarities of climate,
soil, insect enemies, etc., and to require but little to establish
a plantation ; it grows rapidly and yields largely, and com
manding a ready market at a high price, there now seems
nothing needed to stimulate its cultivation to a treat extent.
The portion of our country where this plant can be raised to
advantage is perhaps limited but within its natural area it ia
thought that it can be produced with greater profit than al
most any other species of fibrous plant. The drawback to
this flattering picture lies in tbe difficulty of separating the
fibre from tbe bark, and the bark from the stalk. Tbe East
Indian Government baa proposed a prize of $25,000 for a ma
chine or process that will accomplish this object- The award
has not yet been made, the period having lately been extended,
owltg lo the nnsatisfsctory nature of the competing machines.
The slier, however, atill holds good, and the prize will, we pre
sume, be assigned, in due course of time.
By the Nettie Merrill we notice the arrival of the effects
of the U. S. Consulate at Lahaine, showing that Uncle Sam
bas wound np hia affairs at that point.

Affairs in Europe.
A brief telegram in tlie papers announces that
Russia has annexed Soongaria. Probably not
one in ten who reads the announcement has any
idea of where aDd what Soongaria is. But to
Kuseia hcreelf, in view of her traditional policy
of extension towards India, the country is an im
portant one, and its annexation but another step
in the deeircd direction. It is but a narrow
Btrip of territory, inhabited by 6ome two millions
of Tartars, who for the past two hundred years
have been under the dominion of the Emperors
of China. The pretext for this unlawful seizure
of the territory of the Brother of the Sun, is that
the Soongarian government harbors fugitives
from Russian justice. Of course it is a frivolous
one, got up for the occasion, but the Emperor of
China is in no condition to maintain his rights
against the powerful aggressor, nor has he any
allies to take his part. So that beyond his harm
Ices paper bulletins of protest, the Chinese Ern
peror will quietly submit to that which he can
not prevent. But to Russia this acquisition is
important, as rendering sure the acquisition of
Turkistan, and furnishing a point at which to
assemble a powerful army on the northern fron
tier of India. Therefore this step of the Czar
may plainly be considered as a first menace to the
British possessions in India. Russia believes in
her mission, not only to supplant the crescent on
the Boephorus and the Dardanelles, but to rule
India by driving the British flag from the penin
Bula of Hindostan, and her slow but systematic
movements all point towards the realization of
these enajs. fe learn also through the telegraph
that she is about to place her whole immense
army of no less than a million and a half of men,
upon a war footing, and to this end all officers on
furlough were ordered to report immediately for
service. The ostensible reason given for this
formidable movement in a time of profound peace,
is that it is simply to ascertain with certainty the
state of efficiency of the army, in case of need."
Iiow soon that need may arise, and in what par
ticular direction, we shall probably see, ere long.
The vast armament of Russia is justly a cause of
alarm in Europe, and a menace to its peace.
Should a general war now break out, its propor
tions would be on a terribly grand scale. The
forces of other powers which are capable of being
brought into the field, arc estimated as follows:
Germany, 824,990 men, 2,000 pieces of artillery;
Austria, 733,926 men, 1,600 guns; Turkey,
253,000 men, 732 guns ; Italy, 415,000 men, 720
guns. Tbe British forces are not given in tbe
Austrian official report from which the above is
compiled, and no reliable data can be given as to
the forces of FrAnce, nnder her present exhausted
military condition. But in all Europe, it appears
that from three to four millions of men are main
tained on the military establishments, non-producers,
held ready at a moment's notice to cut one
Another interesting and important feature of
the news received by this mail, is the heavy
movement of specie now taking place from Eng
land to Germany, on account of the French in
demnity payments, which are mainly through
English loans. The sums that will fall due the
Germans between the first of the present month
and the first of April, 1872, will be as follows :
Six installments of $16,000,000 each, payable
e?ery fortnight, from January 1st to April 1st, and
$4,000,000 extra on the day of the last payment,
making in all $100,000,000. The sum total paid
up to October this year, is $335,000,000. And
there will remain nearly $000,000,000 unpaid
after April 1st, 1872, on which France bas to
pay 5 per cent, interest, or $30,000,000 a year.
All payments must be made in specie, and nearly
all of this specie will have to be drawn from
England. Very naturally, British financiers are
becoming really alarmed at the prospect of the
depletion which must follow. Tbe specie once in
Germany, will be for a time at least, removed
from circulation, and a crisis in gold will be the
inevitable result in London, before the end of the
year. On this subject the New York Times re
- It remains to be seen bow London is to escape a Black
Friday of her oern, which now threatens to come to her before
February next- According to aU precedent there arill be a se
vere stringency In the money market there, a panic in securi
ties, a long list of mercantile failures, a minimum bank rate of
ten per cent all as the consequences of a drain of specie from
the Bank of England ; and then, after endless mischief is done,
the Government will step in, suspend Peel's banking act, en
abling tbe bank to expand its loan and circulation without so
much coin in the vaults ; and public confidence will gradually
return. Tbe bank lost $23,000,000 in coin during tbe month
ending October Tin, and $29,000,000 is its total reserve ; and
this seems to have been but the beginning of the drain, aince
the German government is very alow to restore tbe funds to
general circulation, and there ia every prospect that, by Feb
ruary 1st, it will have $300,000,000 locked up' from use as
carefully as Is the coin reserve in the Coiled Stales Treasury."
The London Court Journal, of a recent date,
says that " Bismarck intends to board the world's
coin, and touch England's vitality through her
finances. Tbe only safety for the moment is to
decline to discount the bills for which he demands
gold and give him back notes. England must
stand as if behind a battery, upon a note curren
cy, as our safety against this Prussian invader,
who undertakes our overthrow through our
finances. There is no such amount of bullion as
that which Prussia demands of France. All the
deposits in gold and silver, public and private, in
Europe and America, is less than two hundred
millions sterling." This language, from a leading
London journal, clearly betrays the great fear
which exists of a financial panic.
The great army review at Aldershott has re
sulted most unsatisfactorily, and shows, even in
time of peace, that tbe conclusions of the author
of" the battle of Dorking," were not far wrong
as to the necessity of reform in army regulations.
So lamentably deficient were the arrangements of
tbe commissariat department at Aldershott, that
thousands of troops were left without food for
twenty-four hours. The attention of government
was being particularly directed to reform in the
army details, and the reorganization was reported
as going on rapidly.
The report of what transpired at a recent Cabi
inet Council at Windsor, is ominous of change in
the British government. We read that it was
proposed to establish a Regency, the Queen of
course retiring, with the Prince of Wales as Re
gent. This Iler Majesty refused to approve, and
subsequently 6he refused to affix her royal signa
ture to documents which were presented. We
are to infer that Her Majesty then left the Coun
cil, to Fpeak vulgarly, " in a huff," for we read
further that " the Cabinet afterward continued
the question of a Regency, and tbe definite prop
osition was introduced to appoint the Chancellor
to 6ign documents in place of the Queen." These
few words confirm very plainly the impression
that the personal sovereign of Great Britain is
not, by considerable odds, the governing power in
France is quiet, under the Republic. Thiers,
getting old, ia reported to be desirous of pointing
out who shall be his successor in the Presidential
chair, in case of his death. But as to who Bhall
be the next ruler of uncertain France, whether
President, King or Emperor, it would be rash to
undertake to predict.
The Australian Line.
By the steamer Moses Taylor which arrived on
Monday last, Mr. W. II. Webb, the eminent
shiobuilder and owner, came as passenger, en
route for New Zealand and Australia, for which
parts he sailed on the Nevada tbe same evening.
We understand that Mr. Webb visits New Zea
land at the invitation of that government, and
that a number of the prominent merchants of
Melbourne and Sydney have extended a special
invitation to him to visit the colonies, and confer
personally on the subject of the Australian Line
across tbe Pacific. Ab the energetic originator o
this great enterprise, he will undoubtedly be re
ceived most cordially, and the result of hia visit
may confidently be looked for in the permanent
establishment of the line on a solid basis, so far
as the Colonies are concerned.
The recent conference held at Melbourne by
representatives from the different colonies, has re
sulted in an agreement to recommend to the sev
eral Legislatures, a very largo appropriation
(over $000,000) for annual subsidies to two pos
tal lines, via Suez and San Francisco. This ar
rangement however was to be subject to the
Ilome government paying one half the expense of
both services. Meantime the conference adjourned
without making any provision for a temporary
line, the time fixed for commencing the proposed
subsidies being not later than March, 1873. So
that after all, nothing really definite or satisfac
tory has been arrived at by the Melbourne con
ference, beyond tbe fact that the Colonies are
convinced of the importance of sustaining the
route via San Francisco. It is to be hoped that
the presence of Mr. Webb in the conferences of
tbe men of wealth and enterprise of the colonies,
and the representations which he will be able to
make, will hasten decisive action. It is confident
ly expected that the American Congress, which
meets next month, will decide to aid the enter
prise by a substantial subsidy, of at least $300,-
000 per annum.
A telegram," dated New York, November 2d, to
the effect that the New York Chamber of Com
merce had taken action Onfavorably to the grant
ing of a subsidy to an American line of steam
ships from San Francisco to Australia, appears
to be incorrect. The agents of Webb's line
received on the 4th a dispatch as follows, which
puts the case in a different light :
New York. Nov. 3. The report of the Special Committee
of the Chamber of Commerce yesterday, in reference to
Congress aiding our line, was followed by addresses at length
in reference to our shipping interests, by Messrs. A. A- Low,
Stranahan, Crittenden, Mayor Opdyke, and others. That
part of the report relating to an American line from 8an
Francisco to Australia was referred back to the Committee,
with instructions to report at a special meeting of the Chamber,
and insert that Congress should allow liberal compensation to
the New Zealand and Australian line from ban Francisco.
This decided recommendation by so influential
a body as the New York Chamber of Commerce,
ought, and doubtless will have tbe effect to arouse
Congress to the importance of encouraging
promptly and efficiently this important American
enterprise. The fact once known, (and it is now
sufficiently evident to be beyond question) that
this Australian line is no speculative enterprise,
but is rapidly to become the means of building
up a great and wealth-producing commerce
between the two prominent branches of the
Anglo-Saxon race, bringing in its train all the
untold advantages of free and friendly intercourse,
must certainly impress upon statesmen and
legislators the paramount importance of affording
it at once the fullest possible aid and encourage
ment. Another telegram which we find in the com
pany of the one quoted above, more particularly
affects our own business relations abroad. It
states that Secretary Bout well authorizes the
company to carry merchandise in bond to and
from Europe, to and from New Zealand and
Tasmania, but not the Sandwich Islands."
What may this mean ? Is it intended to " freeze
us out?" And if so, it would be well to ascer
tain what it is that has brought us into such bad
odor with the powers that be at Washington, as
to omit us particularly from reasonable privileges
that are accorded to all the rest of the world.
Perhaps our Chamber of Commerce can give
some light upon the subject. It may however
turn out that this is but another blunder of tbe
telegraph ; reason and common sense would lead
us to hope so, at least.
