A suggestion from Hawaii : This

satisfactorily till we send the Ha

From Humboldt we learn that the
bktne Monitor, with lumber, sailed
for Mahukona, on the 9th. The
Mary Dodd was to follow on the
10th, for Honolulu. The Foicst
Queen, for Honolulu, and the M. &.
Smith, for Mahukona, with redwood,
are expected to leave Puget Sound
On the 20th of Juno the French
Legislature parsed, by a large ma
jor ity, an act authorizing the sale of
the Crown jewels. It is suggested
that if Colonel Judd will hurry up ho
may secure a few genuine Crown
jewels, and possibly a Crown. But
we think the Ficncli Crown is not a
nafc. one to get, as it has a knack of
falling off, much to the wearer's dis
comfort. They also passed the long
talked of Dhorcc Act.
Yestfuoay wo reported a runaway
as probably being H. R. Macfar
lane's team. The following arc the
true facts of the case: Mr. Widc
ntamt's team, in charge of a skilful
driver, was coming along the Wat
kiki road, when a Chinaman, in a
cart, deliberately ran into it, in spite
of warning, and took the hind wheel
off. This, of course, frightened the
horses, and they ran away. We
trust the Chinaman will bo punished
as he deserves.
Complaints arc rife of the cruelty
to auimals practised at the Pound.
Some animals were kept from Thurs
day afternoon till Saturday with
scarcely any food, and as there in no
grass in the Pound thp poor dumb
animals could neither batisfy tbeir
wants nor tignify them to others.
Wu think some, notification to owners I
should he giyen when animals arc in j
the Pound say, a weekly list pub
. lished in each of the (tapers'. And a '
proper supply of food ought to bo j
obtaineu ana given regularly to every
animal in the Pound.

LATE FOREIGN NEWS.
Aoo. 3. A scaro took place last
evening. There is a clump of trees
on tho fresh water canal, about in
the center of the British line. The
outposts, which were guarded by
company of the Sixtieth Rifles, were
duly posted there last evening, and
oautioned by Major-General Alison
as to the necessity of maintaining
absolute steadiness, and were order
ed, in case of an attack in force, to
fall back in order on a barricaded
house by tho side of the canal.
These instructions were apparently
fully understood and the General
left satisfied. About two o'clock in
the morning the enemy suddenly ap
peared on the left of our outpost
with infantry and cavalry lliey
had approached very rapidly, and
unobserved, and before our men had
timo to 'check their advance, they
cnargcu tue clump oi trees at a
groat pace. The Rifles fired a
single volley and then broke and ran
along the bank of tho canal.- Their
outlook would seem to have been
very defective, and worse than this,
the still retreating troops neglected
all orders concerning tho rallying
point and never stopped until they
had reached the fortified water works
on a hill about a mile distant. Four,
of them even ran till they reached
the camps- They spread all sorts of
ridiculous rumors, such as that they
had lost all their comrades, and had
la8t seen Major "Ward surrounded
by the enemy, and similar nonsense.
A company instantly moved forward
to the bank of the canal. The
enemy had apparently not followed
the fugitivesjfar, but had taken the
titles they had thrown away in their
flight, and secured their reserve of

Yesterday's engagement is the
subject of general , .comment
here. In tho opinion of men of high

The plucejiof yesterday's engage
ment is named Esbct Kurshid,, G( n
eral Alison states that the enemy's
loss was between 200 and 300. One
officer of tho. Must nplinzine regiment
ana lourteen privates were taken
nrisoncis. Thev staled that the
enemy's force consisted of a battali

in tue June massacre. In order to
test them, General Alison offered

fused, saying there was great discon
tent in Arabi Pasha's camp.i ' They
say Arabi sent as pnsoners to
Cairo some officers who asked what
they were fighting for.
The, prisoners reckon tho rebel
force at Kafrcl-Dwar at 10,000. The
enemy's first line was not entrench
ed, but was sheltered partly bv
brushwood and houses and partly by
a Darncaue erected wltu carriages
taken from Alexandria.
No Indian troops, but only the
marines and sailors from Britisl
ships lying in the roads were disem

stampede of Egyptian troops and
the Arab population took place.

crowds of natives w;ero seen hurrying

crowded eveu to the roofs of the
carriages. It is reported at Ismailia
that Arabi Pasha has ordeicd -1,000
troops to approach the canal.

Auo. 8. The Times in a leading
article says : The Egyptian situation
will not be complicated by the policy
of tho new Frcnci Ministry, which is
decipedly in favor of the policy of
Gambctta, but. knowing that tho
opimon of the country is against in
tervention it is impossible to suppose
that Gambctta will attempt to carry
out his Egyptian policy. The Cabi
net, the Times declares, is not a
strong one, nor can the friends of
republican institutions in Frauce
look upon it with much satisfaction.
Auo. 3. An European official at
Smyrna has warned his government
that a man-of-war is necessary there,
as the slightest quarrel niav'lcud to
serious disturbances. The Indian
Government has ukon to date 29
steamers for the Egyptian services.
Sir William Jenncr and Sir James
Pagcthave been consulted in regard
to General Sir Garnet -Wolscley's
ailment, and decided that he ha'd
bettor sail for Egypt and avoid the
fatigues of the land journey. Gen.
Wolseley, on going on board yester
day, had his head muffled, and look
ed far from being well.
Aug. 6. The official report of
Admiral Seymour concerning tho
encounter with the enemy by the
reconnaissance party at Mahalla
Junction Saturday, is as followb
The force consisted of 200 men of
the Naval Biigadc, with one forty
pounder and two nine-pound guns,
under Captain Fisher; 1000 marines,
under Colonel Tusou ; half a battali
on of the Thirty-eighth and Forty
sixth regiments, and all of the
ixticth regiment. Wo had a skir
mish with the enemy, who were
2,000 strong, with six guns and six
rockets, from half-past five until
seven o'clock in the evening. The
total casualties to the Naval Brigade
and marines was two killed and
The following is General Alibon's
report: Persistent native reports
having existed during the past few
days that Arabi Pasha was returning
from Knfr-cl-Dwar uponJDamauhour,
I dctci mined upon a.rcconnaissance
to ascertain clearly whether Arabi
still held his original position. Tho
strong left column commenced the
advance at 4:45" p.m. from tho ad
vanco pickets of the Ramleh lines,
moving by botii banks of the Mali
moudieh Canal, and soon came into
action with tho enemy, who was
strongly posted in a group' of palm
trees on tho eastern, side,, and iu
strong defensible houses nnd gardens
on tho, Other side. Their ,poMtioiiB
were carried. A't this timo Limit.
Vysn of tho'Sixtltith,regiment and
one soldier were killed. The enemy
then took up a second position linif
a mile in the rear, upon the east
bunk of the canal among high crops
bud houses abd behind the irregular
aanks of the canaU From this posi
tion the enemy were driven with
I accompanied the right column
myself. As soon as the enemy ob
served us they opened fire with artil
lery. I pnshSd 6h-"h8"- rapidly as pos
sible till we reached a point where
tho railway approached the nearest
to the Mahmoudich Canal, and then
opened a most terrific firo upon .the
enemy lmtnglilid banks of the canal.
Two nine-pounders were dragged on
to the embankment nnd came into
action against the enemy's guus, the
forty pounder firing oyer our beads
against a point where tho enemy's
forces were beginning to appear. I
now threw forwai d two companies
to a car house near tho canal, and
followed up this move by throwing
four companies still more to my left,
upon the bank of, and across the
canal, thus attaining tho position I
wished, and thus forming a diagonal
line across both the canal and the
railway. Tho enemy retired slowly
before us. Five 'of their seven
pounders and nine-centimetre guns
were 6peodily got under by oiir
