Okiook Treaty and North W, i.

Salute, and Vi,iT..-Soon after the Colum

the Commodore's flag with seventeen guns, which
was promptly returned by thirteen.
At 10 o'clock Ttursday, the Columbus exchanged

Naval II. B. M.'s biig Spy returned on Mon
day from a short cruise with the Collingwood, hav

under the lee of Hawaii. She brought despatches
from the Admiral.
The U. S. ship Vincennes does not visit these
Islands. She accompanied the Columbus to Jeddo
and parted with her soon after leaving there, for the
Ladrones and China, thence home via Cape of Good
Hope. She had sickness on board also.
Most Melancholy. On Tuesday afternoon
John II. Smith, son of the Seargent'of Marines of
Ii. B. M. s ship Juno, lying in our harbor, while rid
ing on the plain was thrown from his horse and drag
ged for several miles by his foot in the stirrup. His
neck was dislocated und his head beat to pieces by
the hotofa of the frightened animal, so that when
stopped the unfortunate boy was picked up a man
gled corpse. He was a lad of but ten years old,
small of his age, a general favorite, and had attract
ed the attention of our residents.
THE POLYNESIAN RATPfmTsAV SEPTEMBER 12,
Accident. A daughter of Mr. E. II. Rogers,
about five years old, was much burnt on Wednesday
morning, by her clothes taking fire from a furnace
in the cellar. She ran up stairs to her mother in a
distant part of the house with her clothls in flames.
There being nothing near with which to extinguish
the flames, Mrs. Rogers seized the burning clothes
in her hands and stripped them from the child. In
ao doing she was dreadfully burned, but the child's
life was saved, although she remains as yet very
Brazilian Aloe. A magnificent specimen of
this plant may now be seen in the premises of the
Unitod States Commissioner, in full blossom. With
in a few weeks it has shot up a stem twenty-five
feet or more high, growing a portion of the time at
the rato of twelve inches a day. It is the first that
has blossomed on this island, and ia really worth
eeeing. The parent plant was brought from St.
Catherines in 1839, in the -ship Farila, arid takpn to
Kauai. They are now spreading over the islands,
and eventually may be made of value in commerce
by the manufacture of cordage from the leaves, as
is done elsewhere.
Land Claimed by Mh. Charlton. By the
latest advices from England we learn that thisjs
puted land had again claimed the JFltentjon of the
British Government. All the documents in relation
to it, including the results of last year's highly im
portant investigation by command of the King, have
been referred to the Law Adviser of the Crown.
With such a body of evidence before him, it is not
too much to hope that his opinion will lad to the
final rendition of justice to the rightful heir.
