and oT tlie new Barracks, both of which
lIlilbg$ ore now near completion, will
free the workmen, so that they may be
employed on other "buildings. "We have
berred the slow .progress of these two
IruiWirrcs, and on asking the xanse hare
always received the answer that it was
impossible to obtain a sufficient, number
of men. With regard to the Post-Office,
another caue lias likewise been added to
tbi, which is, that the careful Supcrin
tendont of Public Works haa thought it
prudent, whilst dealing withlbo material
whh which it is constructed concrete
U maic sure oT iu durability by causing
it to dry and fcarden slowly, and for that
jmrpoc keeping it wet down. There can
not be t doubt, now, that this handsome
bunding is as firm as though built of solid
granite. But this 'is -a digression from
what we were intending to say. If the
Government, with the -means at hand,
always paring ready cash,rithout delay
and even when necessary to meet require-
meaLs, to anticipate regular payments,
can not push forward their buildings with
rapidity on account of a scarcity of labor,
it wonld seem as if, in view of the large
israelii res which the Government must
soon undertake, some enterprising men
might adopt means to put the neccssary
labor on the sjwt.
The high price which men charge for
labor here, as well as the short day's
work which they furnish, in view of the
difficulty of getting work done, would
cem to indicate that there is what might
be called a monopoly in the labor market,
or at least that contractors will not base
anr proffers upon the- idea of a competi
tion in labor. This state of things is dis
astrous to enterprising mechanics as well
as to the public. We say it is disastrous
to enterprising mechanics, because that
inasmuch as it prevents improvements
from being undertaken, contractors and
roaster mechanics are unable to make use
of their talents and industry to their own
best advantage. For instance, as we
walk up and down some of our streets,
we are struck with worfder at 'the amount
of stock, risked in wooden buildings, which
are, is fact, only clapboard and shingle
structHrcs. We pass, cvery'day, certain
dry goods stores, in some of which the
ttock must reach the value of near- a hun
dred thousand dollars, - and- say to our
selves, " This is certainly trust in special
Protidence. Here is the accumulation
of a life of laborious industry in a build
ing which would make a burglars, jack
knife laugh, and which a spark -of fire
would set in tlames and burn before a
water-cock could be turned on it." Now,
it can easilv be seen that if the owner of
one of these stores commences a building
of a superior description, he compels all
his neighbors to improve ; first, becanse
their risk apjicare all the more fool-hardy
in -comparison, and secondly, because
their establishments show to a disadvan
tage in point of trade, to say nothing of
the ability to show -off goods in a large,
spacious store. In reflecting upon these
facts, we arc driven to ask ourselves
v&etber this is in consequence of a want
of public spirit and enterprise on the part
of the proprietors of such establishments,
or whether it arises from the difficulty and
cscnsc of building. Certainly, we arc
driven to one of these conclusions, or to
the idea tliat the proprietor deems the
Iastfto be a sufficient excuse for the culpa
ble risk to which he is subjecting his
property, and to his want of pride in his
establishment. Xow, it must be apparent
that if the high price of labor is the ob
stacle, that such high price docs stand in
the way of tho interests of mechanicSj
both masters and journeymen ; and it is
worthy of the reflection of enterprising
men, whether a movement may not be
xsadc to induce mechanics to come here in
sncb numbers as to enable works to bo
carried on with rapidity and precision.
Whilst, however, upon this, subject of
J'ablic Spirit, the subject of the Hotel is
"worthy of our consideration. The re
marks of our cotcmporary, the Advertiser,
in the issue of January 28th, were judi
cious and timely, and it would appear
that now, for the first time, there is a
probability lliat a good hotel may be es
tablished. And yet wo arc informed that
as soon as a proper site is applied for
anywhere, property immediately doubles
pr trebles in value, whilst some of our
citizens, whose business would be most
benefitted by a facility for entertaining
strangers, both from abroad and from the
other Islands, refuse subscriptions for the
work. Sorely, this is not as it should be.
We have seen the Minister of Finance
going about with his subscription paper,
and one incident occurred which is worthy
of being related. A gentleman in trade
Iwing called upon, put down a certain
sum: a few minutes afterwards, he -came
hurrying along, saying, "I have been
UnnHng of this matter, and I think I
ought to put own more ; Til double my
subscription.' 2Tow, we do not mention
his twine, for it is not on-duty lo make
personal allusion to any of our citizens,
but surely, were we to do so, he could,not
for hetakesiirproper.;Ticw' of ivkat is to
SOS own rawre n tru u iu u
dutr. When the public balances between
the patronizing of two men, they will
select the establishment of him who
evinces a lively public spirit. 'Sn'ch a man

business, and deserves the confidence of

The Statistical Register of the Colony of
Newouth -Wales for 1869,which has been
laid-on our fable, is one. of tho yearly re
ports' of "their Registrar General, T. J.
JaqneSrEsq. "It" Is a very full afld'eom-
prehensive statement of the commercial
and social statistics of tho Colony. i rom
its voluminous tables we extract the fol
lowing figures: The present population
is 485,356 being a gain of 3798 per cent.
over that of 1868. The introduction of
immigrants, as a means of increasing the
population, has been considered of such
importance that, np to 1867, their Parlia
ment annually appropriated several thou
sand pounds towards defraying the ex
penses of the arriving immigrants. Under
this liberal public policy it appears that,
from 1860 to 1867 inclusive, 20,784 immi
grants arrived, at a total cost to the public
revenue of 203,271, or about .14 per
head. In all new countries increase in
population is tho question paramonnt'in
importance; and by enterprising com
munities it is met by the method that is
most available drafts upon, the popula
tion of older and more crowded countries.
Agents and lecturers aro6cnt abroad to
persuade the poorer classes to try their
fortunes, in tho newer countries, where
land is cheap and laborers few.
The total revenue for 1869 is, gene
ral 2.500,217; by loan, 1,073,292.
The total expenditure, 3,265,805. The
total imports for 1869, arc 8,302,753;
the exports, 9,093,442., Tho imports
per capita of population, is 17 os.
10d. ; of exports, 20 9s. 4 d. This ex
cess of exports indicates that tho colony
is increasing in wealth as well as popula
tion, lheir public debt amounts to 9,
546,030, or 10 13s. 4d. per head; and
the annual interest thereon to IDs. 3d. per
head. There has been expended on the
public works during the year 960,308.
The whale fisheries are not prosperous,
there having been a gradual decrease of
ships from 1800, when twelve ships, Colo
nial and foreign, were engaged, bringing
cargoes valued at 8,012, to I860 with
only five ships and cargo valued at 1,533.
The shipping is represented at 2,022
arrivals.
The imports of raw sugars for the
year were :
From Mauritius 7,731 tons.
We or Bourbon 2,118 "
' Batavla 1,077 "
' Java 1,403 "
Manila 2,0(K "
" China 2G5 "
' Hongkong 103 "
" Other Countries 3,318 "
A total of. ..18,610 "
There are at present only two sugar
refineries in the Colony, which have
turned out a product of refined sugar of
134,480 cwt, and of this amount 34,329
cwt. was exported to Now Zealand, New
Caledonia, Soutli Sea Islands, etc.
The duty on raw sugars is 5s. per cwt.;
on molasses, 3s. 4d.; on coffee, 2d. per
lb.
on rice, 2 per ton.
Under the table of average prices for
provisions, doming, etc., tno itegister
gives the summary of several years, show
ing that prices have fallen over fifty per
cent during the last ten years. The
prices for 1869 are set down per lb. as
follows : Rice, 3d. : sugar, 4d. ; coffee,
salt, Id. ; fresh meat, 2d. ; salt meat,
id.
Wages rule at the following rates:
'arm laborers per annum, with board
and lodging, 30 to 33 ; general house
servants, 26; masons and bricklayers,
per diem, without board, 7s. to 10s. ;
blacksmiths, 7s. to 12s. ; carpenters, 7s.
to 9s.
Tho rain fall at Sydney for the year lias
been 48.19 inches; the prevailing winds,
west-northwest.
The Register is replete with statistics
that are valuable and interesting to the
Colonists and showing for the series
years, such progress as must cause
them to look with pride upon the growth
of their country. We shall also regard
hereafter their -progress with increased
interest since we may expect our trade
with them to increase through the con

Information and complaint by the Attorney
Gencrjl for malpractice, praying that the said D.
B. Mahoe may be required to 8how cause why
13 name should not be stricken Irom toe Hole ol
Attorneys and Councellors of this Court, and
such other proceedings be bad as to this Honor
able Court may seem meet for the following
reasons :
1. That the said D. B. Mahoe in February,
1670, was employed by one Kalimaloloa to bring
suit in this Court for the recovery or a certain
piece of land from one Banakapca and her bus
band Knheleloa. That the raid D. B. Mahoe de
manded and received from the said Kalimaloloa
the sum of sixty-six dollars, fire of which were
afterwards returned, viz : Fifty dollars for Costs
of Court, and Ihu remainder for his professional
services, mat up to mis time me- saia u. a.
Mahoe has not moved in the matter and has not
made any deposit in the office of tho Clerk of
this Court for costs in this matter.
2. That tMsaid D. B. llahoe on or about the
first of Aagwt last, was employed by one Mika-
lemi to bring a tait in this Court for the recovery
of pooceooioa'ef a eertia - piece of U&4 ftwa oae

thJsalYMiSjeBM 1 tie mm of seventy 'defers'
and that be toU the said Miksdetai that fifty dol
lars or this 'son were for the Costa of Cesrt.
That the said D, B. Mahoe has not Bade any de
posit for costs in the office of the Clerk of this
Court, and that fie has not moved in this matter;
tbatfon the contrary hen went to the, island of
Kauai, where he has remained - to the date of
making this complaint.' That in1 consequence of
Uis me said Atikaiemi was orjugca 10 eapioy ana
pay otben connsel, tit the October term of ibis
Court andHhat he bid furthermore to pay the
sum of twenty fire dollars for Costs of Court.
The Respondent's answer admits the receipt
of the money aa charged,- but avert that-ber took -
some steps in both the matters set forth .in the
complaint ; that ib'ea his duty called him to ot-J
tend the. Circuit-Court -on -the Island of Kauai,
and that whilst on Kauai for that purpose, a
death occurred in" KisTamily.lhere residing, which
compelled him to stay with them
The evidence of the witness, llikalemi.is, that
the respondent was employed by witness as At
torney in an ejectment case versus one- Loan
that he demanded and received from witness $70
$50 for coats of court, S20 for his That
witness demanded the $50 baek, bet that the
said Mahoe did not return tho money. That, wit
ness was, .obliged to employ G. B. Kalaaukane
and It., II. Stanley, afterwards,, to conduct his
case, as the respondent had left this Island with
out moving at all in this matter. That witness
had to pay $25 costs of court, besides the $50
paid the respondent for costs, who, in a letter
to witness, positively declined to return from
Kauai to attend to the suit.
The records of the Court,or the October term
showed that the case, of Mitalemi vs. Luau was
dismissed, and that respondent was not of connsel.
G. B. Kalaaukane testified that the respondent
before leaving for Kauai, requested him to attend
to Mikalemi's case, but did not pay him any fee,
The evidence of Kalimaloloa, conGrmed by
Alalia, was, that she had paid Mahoe SGI, S50
costs of court, and the remainder for his services
to bring a suit for the recovery of a piece of land
from one Hana Knpea; that the suit was never
brought, and that Mahoe did not return the
money to her.
No evidence was presented for the respondent,
and the case was submitted without argument.
T).Mi Mahoe, the respondent, pro se.
F. H. Harris, Deputy Attorney-General, for
the rule.
WlDEMAJiS, J. :
We find from the evidence, as well as from re
spondent's admission, that he undertook the case
of Mikalemi ; that he did not perform his pro
fessions! duties, and that he received $50 for
costs of Court, which he converted to his own
use. We find, lurther, that in the second case
of Kalimaloloa, respondent also neglected to
perform his professional engagements, and that
he converted the money received from his client,
under false pretenses, to his own use. Both
cases satisfy us that the respondent is guilty of
neglect of his professional duties, mal-practice,
and deceit. Every such case deserves the highest
censure, aud renders it impossible to allow the
person guilty of such offenses to retain the hon
orable position of a practitioncr-at-law. The
least that the Court can do in such a case is to
relieve the community from the liability of being
imposed on by a practitioner of Ibis character,
and to Bustain the good name of the law by re
moving from it any member who is willing to
bring such disgrace upon its reputation.
It is therefore ordered, adjudged and consider
ed, that Respondent be dismissed from the roll of
Practilioners-at-Law.

the following particulars of the second day's battle
between Cbauzy's forces and the German army un

ONE OF THE MOST EVENTFUL DAYS DUR
ING THE WAR.
This Is probably the most eventful battle fought
since the struggle began. It closed ai nightfall this
day. After he defeat of yesterday, January 10, Gen
eral Chauxy displaying much energy, rallied bis
broken columns. Having received reinforcements.
e determined to strike another blow to retrieve bis
fortunes, knowing tbat tho whole bopc of France
centred on the abiiiiy of bis army to break through
the opposition of tbc Prince and adrance to tbc re
lief of Prais. After a night of unceasing labor and
nxlety, daylight found tbc French forces prepared
for conflict. Tbelr army consisted of three carps,
the Sixteenth, ScTeutccnth and Twenty-first, re
spectively under command of Admiral Jaureglnbery
and Generals Calomb and Jouuery. These corps av
eraged 50,000 men each, making an effective force of
150,600 men, the whole undertbeeuprcmccommand
of General Cbauzy. By one o'clock In the morning,
Jaurcglnbcry'c corps had taken up a position on the
right bank of the river Unisne, General Calomb's
was posted on tho plateau of Anons, and General
Jonffery's on the right, covering the village of Bret
tcs. The Prnsstans advanced along those roads, and
are said to have been under command of PrinccFrcd
crick Charles himself. They were apparently 100,
000 strong.
THE PRUSSIANS OPEN FIRE.
Soon after ten o'clock sharp firing was opened by
the Prussians from well located batteries on tho left
of the French. It was replied to with spirit. Very
soon a. large force of .German Infantry flanked by cav
alry, advanced under cover of a heavy artillery fire,
striking the right ofAdmlral Jaurrglnbery's position.
The assaulting column Was met by a fierce artillery
re from many guns. Including anumberof mitrail
leuses of a new pattern. Tbe atrugglc was severe
and well contested; but although the German's suf
fered heavy loss, they finally succeeded In
DRIVING BACK THE FRENCIL
Capturllng two guns and holding an Important po
sition near tbe river. General Cbauzy, perceiving
the danger which threatened his position, moved
forward bis reserves of artillery to tuppoit Admiral
Janrcginbery's. Here opened a terrific fire wbicb
checked for a while the further advance of the Ger
mans in that direction. Two orthrcesevereassaults
were made by tbe Germans to secure further advan
tages, tbe object being to take tbe position held by
the French at Tillierea. The French, boweTer,
strongly posted, fought with great courage and de
termination. Each aasault waa repulsed with
SERIOUS LOSS TO THE GERMANS.
The French also losing heavily. Meantime an
equally fierce attack waa made on the French line
covering the railroad to Chartres and Paris. After
two hours' desperate fighting tbe French centre waa
driven back, when It retreated slowly and In good
order, for a short distance only, to a position In the
rear of tbat first occupied, where rising gronod Af
forded good facilities for artillery. Here CUanzj's
force of guns was posted, which, manned by marines

orgamzcu troops near Le aunt, and retreated In
good order.
New Yobk, Jan. 16. Dispatches from Versailles
state tbat Prince Frederick Charles announces that
Chauzy'i army Is broken up, disorganized, and re
treating in three, different directions. Twenty
thonsand prisoners have been taken. Tbe battle
was a decisive victory for the Prussians, and a crush
ing defeat for tbe French.
The Bombardment of. Paris,
Losdos, Jan. 16. Paris newspapers gay a rain of
projectiles, (some weighing 211 pounds.) unparal
leled In the history of the siege, was poured Into
Paris Irom the Hotel des Invalldea to the Odeon.
Tbe bombardment was uninterrupted day or nigbt,
and so violent on the nigbt of tbe 8tb, between St
Sulplce and tho'Mnseum, shells fell evcrj'two mln
utes, striking hospitals, ambulances, schools, public
libraries, St, Snlplce, Val de Grace, and private
bouses. Women in the streets and abed were killed.
and Infants In tbelrmutbers' arms werestruck. One
projectile In the RueVaugirard killed four children
and wounded five. The unrivaled worka of art in
tbe Luxembourg Museum are destroyed; the Hos
pital of Val de Grace suffered greatly; the wonnded
were killed in their beds. Paris Is transformed Into
battle-Held, the women showing themselves as
brave as tbe men.- - r
Losdon, Jan. 10. The Paris Government protests
to the foreign Powers against tbe bombardment
wantonly of hospitals, ambulances and churcbea,
the killing of Innocent women and children. They
say military usage requires a warning to remove non
combatants. Tbc bombardment was not a prelimi
nary military action, but a coldly calculated plan of
devastation, and terrorism of civilians by murder
and Incendiarism. They protest loudly in tb6 face
of the civilized world at this useless barbarism. The
inhabitants are undismayed.
On tbe night of the 10th, there were Tigorous sor
ties by tbe Paris garrison against the Gcrmsns near
Lc Bourget and Drancy, and on the 11th Corps, near
Meudon, and on the 2d Bavarian Corps, near Cia-
mart. The Parisians were everywhere repulsed,
London, Jan. 13. There was severe fighting till
evening between Herlcourt and Croix. Result un
known.
There Is constant skirmishing near Ilavre.
It is rumored tbat the Prussians are turning Faid-
berbe's left wing, and menacing Carabrai
BKUSSEI.S, Jan. 14. It is expected there will be a
concentration of 50,000 Belgian troops in case Faid-
herbc is forced over tbc frontier.
London, January 17th. A Paris despatch of Jan
uary 13th, says, Gambctta's last despatch to the an-.
thoritivshere, which was suppressed by them, called
upon General -Trochu to" take the initiatory and
mako vigorous sorties npon tbc Germans, so that
they might be prevented from dctatchlng men from
Paris to reinforce tbe armies in the provinces. Ho
said inaction here injures the cause of France else
where.
Tbc violent Republicans In Paris Insist on the
adoption of Greek fire for.mil'itary purposes. Three
men in Paris declare they possess tbe secret of Its
inanulactnrc General Trocbu Is opposed to the
troclly.
Cnicaoo, January 18th. Tbe newspapers of
Northern and Central Illinois received here to-day
are filled with accoaots of tbe great storm of Friday
Saturday and Sunday. From 100 to 200 miles south
of this lattltude, more rain appears to have fallen on
the first day, and It froze nearly as last as It fell.
The roofs of houses, awnings, forest and frnit trees
were covered with immense quantities of ice, and
when to this was added the great weight of snow
which fell during Saturday and Suuday, great dam
age ensued from the crashing ot roofs and trees. Iu
many localities the orchards arc permanently injured
by the breaking off of limbs, and In many.cases tbc
prostration of tbe trees themselves.
The agents of France for the past few months have
been the principal buyers of arras in the American
market, and as a rule purchasing tbc best quality.
Shipments of artillery have been small. A consider
able quantity of barnesss for artillery purposes ap
pears on the manifests of French vessels cleared for
Ilavre dnring tbe winter. A manufacturing firm is
now under contract with the French Government
for their production of weapons of an Improved
pattern, aud Is finishing 1,000 daily. Of the guns
shipped abont 75,000 are Enfield rifles, originally
Imported from England, and last fall obtained from
tbc United States Government at aalcs by proposals.
Losdok, January 17tb. The Lord Mayor bas
started a subscription for tbc benefit of non-combatants
at Versailles.
A meeting of tbe Conference at tbc appointed
time is certain, but an adjournment to await the ar
rival of Javre is probable.
A despatch from Berlin affirms that the Conference
has been licfiaitely arranged.
Advices from Paris report that the fire from-the
French batteries is Improving; on the west side
tbey arc especially effective, doing much damage
to tbc German position.
