have heard of this season arc the three fol lowing. South America, of Providence, 10 months from home 3600 bbls. whale, 100 sperm, 3G,000 lbs. boneworth $49,COo! Ship Hamilton, Sag Harbor 13 months 3300 whale, 70 sperm, .12,000 Iba. bone worth $4C,9C0. Ship Lowell, New London 14 months 1000 whale, 300 sperm, 40,000 lbs. bone worth $00,400. The game is pursued as far north as G0. The portion of the ocean most abounding in whales is subject to dense fogs and heavy weather, frequently preventing the lowering of a boat for two to four consecutive weeks. One ship had it rainy and foggy for three months. Whales are met with in the greatest abundance, so that in a few days clear weather, great numbers are killed. In fact the actual season for capturing them, is on account of the density of the fogs, very limited. We have gathered these facts principally from information derived from the ship mas ters themselves, and from the tables kept by the American Consul. diary tor Tin: week. Sunday morning. Kxcellent sermon on Slander at the Chapel should have been heard by every body subject not exhausted trust it will be continued. Received letter blowing up editor. Monday. New subscriber-southerly wind and auction of schooner Hope. Tuesday. Southerly wind hot as Saha-ra-moschetoes intolerable-afternoon, threat ened rain, but " the big drops did (not) come dancing down to earth" evening two small parties small talk scarce; tolerably pleasant however. Wednesday morn Fight between trades and sea breeze; the latter well blowcd up (country); saw nothing more of them till afternoon received much excellent advice upon affairs of nations generally, and a few bills paid them and sent to collect do.; told to call again mem., intend to. Wrote another "private chapter" and leader for paper three weeks ahead. Walked out to get "news" found the streets as usual, dusty was asked by every body we met for "news," no chance to ask for ourselves. Dull times one month since the arrival of any intelligence from anywhere except Sand Island. Subscribers grumbling issue pro posals for a news factory ; any man who has had several years experience as accident maker, in an extensive establishment, will do for agent; was asked who was author of declined telling; affronted lady appeased her by promising not to tell " on her" when she wrote " poetry." Heard of an accident almost a young lady nearly slipped ofF her horse frightened, not hurt. Much noise at night from a neighboring drinking shop, for a week past better stop it or else . Thursday. Trades back again, very qui et, don't pulf strong afraid of another blow ing up perhaps. Pan, diary adjourned. Incendiarism. Another attempt at incen diarism was made this week, by setting lire to a well house, the bucket rope being first cut. The fire being immediately discovered, no damage was done, but the two past at tempts show that villany is rife among us, and exertions must be made to apprehend the scoundrels. The consequences of an extensive conflagration would be most disas trous, as the town is little better than a tinder-box, and insurance impracticable. Among the Notes in the Friend of the 9th, inst., written by It. C. Wyllie, Ksq., H. ft. M. Pro-Consul, we find the following ex pression of opinion, which we think to be particularly just, being as it is the candid acknowledgement of an entirely disinteres ted individual, and it commends itself to the attention of all concerned. ''Among foreign residents, subjects of different nations, some little jealousy exists about the degree of favor enjoyed under this government. On examination, it will be found that the British complain that the Americans have more favor than the' British that the American make the same com plaint of the greater privileges enjoyed bv tUn UrUlaU A. i.i t. .i .1 "iujii emu mm wit: iTciicii iinnK mcy arc worse ofTthan either Americans or Brit ish; and the only legitimate conclusion to be drawn is, that this government endeavors to deal with all equally and impartially. Were foreigners to be emulous who should deserve most the good opinion and countenance of the government by obedience to the laws, and by living quietly, orderly and peaceably amongst themselves, it would be more to their credit than to bring groundless charges of partiality against a young government struggling to do justice to all." We arc desired by W. Hooper, Ksq., U.S. Consul, to acknowledge the courtesy of His Excellency the Governor, in sending a lot of cocoa-nuts to go in the brig Delaware, under the charge of Capt. Pell, to be plant ed on Sand Island. A grove of those lolly trees in that low spot, might give warning to vessels of its vicinitv, when nothing else could be seen. Wc are much gratified to perceive the zeal with which the editor of the Nonanona follows up the sub ject of Agriculture, giving his numerous readers much excellent prac tical advice, which wc doubt not will have a good effect. Tn our article this week on the whale fish ery, we arc enabled to give only approximate estimates, a from the nature of the business, it is impossible to attain entire accuracy. The amount of bone is generally by the ship-masters roughly calculated, rather than ascertained, but the whole is sufficient ly correct to show the general amounts and relative values of the products of the several nations engaged in the business. Within a month there have been sold in this town one bark, two brigs, and four schooners, in all seven vessels, tonnage amounting to 7G5 tons sales $0,300. Wc arc informed that the island on which the ship Holder Borden was lost, is laid down on Mitchell's map as "Sand Island, discovered in 1805," and its position agrees with the observations made by Capt. Pell. The above mentioned map i3 to be seen at the American consulate. The Maui Shipping list in our last should have been credited to the " Fkiend."
