General (Tolluy. with 22 olllcers and 027 mell, advanced fu occup.v'Mnjolu .Mountain, but were attacked and compelled to fall luck. General Colley was shot through the head and killed. One account sijs that the nin munition of the Imglish gave out and that the Itoers wero reinforced by a detachment from tho Orange Free State. The British mnde a ilesiteratu bat unsuccessful charge and were compelled to llcjht their rnij hick to camp. The slaughter for a time w.ih fearful. The camp is being fortified at eery lHiint. General Uoberts succeds General Colloy. The Itoers attnektd tho Diitish at Walt kerstroom, but were beaten oil after a two hours' engagement. The British loss is slight. Com mander Homily, of tho naal brigade, is also said to be dead. Iteinforcemeuts to the number of 2000 are now on their way to tho Cntx1. The official list shows that tw officers Imo been kill d. Four Captains, a Major and three Lieutenants are wounded. Two Captains and four Lieutenants are prisoners; one Colonel, one Major and one Lieutenant are missing. The agitation in Ireland continues. Hearne, laud agent to the brother of lord Montmorres, was shot by two men near his residence at Halliu rohe and killed. The advance corps of engineers for inaugurating the work on the l'auama Canal, with a full corps of surveyors, have taken the field. 'I he Minnesota State House took fire oil tho 1st instant while the Legislature was in session and was consumed. Some of the legislators had to be got out of the building with ladders. General GaViield called at the Executive Man sion on the 1st instant and paid his respects to President Itajes and the Cabinet. The President and President-elect then concluded to convene the Senate in extra session. From Our Hilo Correspondent Kuitou StTUimw Prkss: It would seem that for the past few weeks that wo were excluded from the world, not receiving our mails as usual. All were naturally anxious to learn how friends and relatives are in Honolulu. We have had no cases of small-pox here and shall keep a very strict watch in order t keep it out. Since my last let ter Mauna Loa has broken out afresh and is morn active than it has been for tvo mouths. The threo flows can bo very distinctly seen from here, and are thought to be within eight miles from Hilo. Two of the Hows are moving towards Puna and one towards Hilo; still we do not think we shall bo harmed. If the smull-poi wero within so short a distance we might lie alarmed. A building is nearly completed on Coco.imit Island on which to place patients in case we should be so unfortunate as to havp any small-pox. No better place could have been chosen. Hilo never was in a more healthy condition than nt present. We all trust that the small-pot will soon dis'tpjioar from Hono lulu. Your lto-.rd nf Health deserve great credit for doing as they have done. Wo still need rain. I suppose the WailuLu has not In-eu so low in man) i ears. J. A. M, yJTicK following is from u recent issue of tho San FrancUco Gill: Koitou MoitiiMi Call : At a meeting held here by the carp?nters of Honolulu, It was resolved to communicate to joa, mid through j our valuable I pijier to the cirpenters and public, the manner in ' which carpenters have been dujuil to comedown I here to work on the King's nilace, hoping vou will insert in our luper the following facts: In jour issue of Thursday, December 2nd, there appeared ' an advertisement for six men to come to Honolulu 1 to work 011 the ptlaco. A large number of men 1 applied, and six of them were engaged and scut nere, instead 01 worKiiig 011 me palace, iney were set on tho roughest kind of outside work, exposed to a tropica! sun. The advertisement also in lluenced a large number of carpenters to come hero with the eiix-ctuiim of getting work, where is they are down here now Idle (unless they are will lug to work for inferior wages), and ery oor nrosiircts for work ill tho future. Also, the, cost i,t living in this country is so high that the difference in wages is not equivalent, nearly every article of famil) consumption liug imported from tho ClMSt. Honolulu, January 10th, 111.
