HONOLULU, SATURDAY, OCT. 14.
COMMERCE OF THE PACIFIC.
It may be of interest to tht commercial world
to cursorily glance at the increase of trade in this
quarter. A chain of events have occurred du
ring the past few years which has attracted the
attention of the world to this quarter of the
globe; and the vast expanse of the Pacific, a few
years since traversed only by whaleships, and an
occasional trader on the north west coast, will
soon be whitened with the sails of commerce.
The western shore of the American continent,
where a few years since the solitude was un
broken save by the crack of the red man's rifle,
or the tramp of the adventurous trapper, already
resounds with the hum of civilization and the
merry sounds of productive industry. .
In the chain of events which have served to
attract atteutiou to this portion of the globe, the
first was she seizure of these Islands by Lord
George Paulet and the subsequent restoration by
Admiral Thomas. Up to that time 1 343 the
trade of the Islands was limited to one or two
ships which sailed from Boston.and the trade with
the whaling fleet. The imports in 1343 amount
ed to $223,335,83 upon which a revenue of
9,4C8,33 was collected. So rapidly did the
trade increase that in 1347 the imports amounted
ut $710,133,52 and the revenue to $43,301,23,
while for the current year the amount of both
imports and revenue therefrom will doubtless far
exceed that amount. But it should be borne in
mind that this great increase of importation is
not the consequence of increased consumption;
far many of the goods which have beeu iinjiort
cd and paid duties here, eventually found their
way out of the country. The actual consump
tion has doubtless increased, but not in propor
tion to the increase of imports; for a large share
of the goods, independent of these elitpiied to
Oregon and California, and for supplies for
whaleships. The exjwrt of the Ulauds is very
limited and the consumption must consequently
be limited. Seventy-five vessels engaged in
trade arrived and sailed from the Islands during
1347. Many of them it is true were small schoon
ers, and made several trips during the year.
The arrivals and departures will far exceed that
number the current year. Since 1843 quite a
trade has sprung up between these Islands and
China, Oregon and California.
The second event which occurred to draw
public attention to the Pacific, was the establish
ment of the French Protectorate at Tahiti. Al
though this event' hits not directly exerted any
great inflence upon commerce it has in a politi
cal sense attracted public attention to the Pacific,
and will in the end, if the right measures be pur
sued by the government there, exert a whole
some .influence upon commerce. The consump
tion will be increased by the influx of foreign
ers while the products will also be increased.
The settlement of the Oregon boundary ques
tion and the influx of settlers, may be classed as
the third event, which has already exerted, and
is destined to exert a still greater influence upon
the growth of commerce in the Pacific. The
exports of Oregon a few years since consisted
mainly of furs, and her trade was limited to one
or two vessels annually. We have no statistics
by which to judge of the increase of trade, but
it must be apparent that it has been great.
Lumber, timber, flour and salmon, are now ex
ported from Oregon in large quantities. The
occasional trader is but one of quite a fleet of
vessels which now annually visit Columbia Riv
er. The natives of the forest are fast sinking
away before the mighty title of civilization which
is pressing onward, and their wigwams are be
ing displaced by the hut of the hardy pioneer.
Oregon is rich in agricultural resources, and the
time is not far distant when her 'dark shores'
will be crowned with stately warehouses her
waters be whitened with the sails of commerce
her rivers ploughed by stately steamers and her
borders resound with the sougs of an indepen
dent and happy people.
The occupation of California by the American
forces may be called the fourth link in the chain
of events to which we have alluded. The trade
of California previous to this event, was limited
to an occasional hide-drogher or smuggler her
exports to hides and tallow, with now and then
a sprinkling of specie. During the occupation
of the country by the forces of the i'uited States
trade was letter, the consumption was increas
ed, but on account of no export existing, the
prosperity of the country was likely to suffer a
serious check. Luckily, in June last, the gold
placcra oti the American Fork was discovered,
and the ease with which gold was procured soon
afforded an export more than sufficient for all
their wants. Subsequently the treaty of peace
between Mexico and the United States was rat
ified, and Upper California, gold and all, be
came a part anl parcel of the great American
Republic. California has presented an instance
of commercial growth unequalled in the annals
of the world, and the discovery of gold in such
abundance, is an event which will exert a migh
ty influence upon the proscrity of commerce in
this ocean. A dense population will soon be in
California, and if agriculture be neglected a
large fleet of vessels will be required to supply
The- line of steamers via Panama, which are
to commence running in January next will make
California and Oregon near neighbors to thv
great commercial cities of the Atlantic coast. A
railroad has long lieen talked of and will doubt
less soon be commenced. Boston and St. Louis
arc already connected by a magnetic line, an ex
tension of which is already contemplated to the
Pacific coast. The expense of completing a
Hue from St. Louis to the Pacific has been esti
mated ut $300,C00, and we confidently believe
that in our day and generation both undertakings
will be accomplished.
It is impossible to foretell the mighty influence
which this chain of events will exert upon the
future prosperity of commerce in this ocean.
The Pacific, almut which n much has been
written and so little kuown, will soon be crowd
ed with traders, every bay and island every
nook and corner will be explored. The mighty
wave of imigration which is now rolling towards
the western shores of the American continent
will sooner or later reach our shores. The ge
ographical position of these Islands point to
them as the West Indies of the Pacific coast.
Before, however, any great advance can lie made
here, a different policy in regnrd to lands and
lalor must be pursued. If the people w ho own
lands w ill not cultivate them, they must and will
be expelled from the hive.
Later from eijrope !
By the arrivul of the 'Amelia,' we have re
ceived dates from London to the 30th of June,
rmn Paris tn the 39th. From a New Or-
leans Evening Mercury of July 22d we glean
As was expected by many, a reign of terror
has eucceeded the revolution. I be rrovisionai
government has been overturned by a great sac
rifice of life, and a new ministry formed on its
ruins. Lamartine, Arago, and others, were
under arrest. It appears that the people of Pa
ris were being enlisted in the army, and a body
of the troops destined for the Provinces, were
inarched out of the city on the 21st of June.
They halted in the suburbs, and having spent
most of their money for wine which was freely
sold them, they resolved not to proceed, but to
return into Paris.
On Thursday night, the 22d of June, the first
barricades were raised, and the troos and the
National Guards were called out. On Friday,
the 23d, the insurgents possessed themselves of .
all thai portion of the right bank ot the river
Seine, stretching from the Fauboug St. Antoine
to the river: whilst on the left bank they orcu
pied all that portion called the Cite, the Fau
bourg M. Marcel, St. V ictor, auU tne lower quar
ter of St. Jan ties.
The communication of the insurgents between
the two banks of the river, was maintained ly
the possession of the church St. Gervais, a part
of the quarter of the temple, the approaches of
ISotre Dame, and the bridge ot M. Michel. ly
these extensive lines of operation the insurgents
occupied a vast portion of the most defensible
part ot the city, anil actually threatened the Ho
tel de V ille, which if they had succeeded in ta
king, might have secured therfirst victory on their
side. On rriday there were partial conoids,
but the insurgents seemed to le occupied more
in fortifying their positions than in actually fight
ing; but whatever success the Government troops
may have had in various quarters where con
flicts took place, as at St. Dennis and St. Mar
tin, it now appears that the enthusiastic courage
of the insurgents, repulsed them, and even beat
them in oilier parts of the city. M. Lamnrtine
rde with the staff of Cavaiguac through Paris,
to quell the insurrection; but it was evident that
nothing but the power of arms would compel the
insurgents to yield. The Government forces were
divided into three divisions, and large masses ofj
troops were brought to bear with artillery upon
the positions of the insurgents; but still Friday
passed, and the insurgents had evidently gather
On Saturday, the 24th, the National Assem
bly declared itself in permanence, and Paris was
placed in a state of scige. The Executive Pow
er was delegated alisolutely to Cavaiguac, and
at half past ten the niemlers of the Executive
Government resigned. They declared that tlipy
should have been wanting in tbeir duties and
honor had they withdrawn on account of sedi
tion and public peril; they only withdrew lie
fore a vote of the Assembly. Reports poured
in every hour to the Assembly, and as the intel
ligence arrived of the slaughter of the National
Guards, and the fall of one General after anoth
er, who was killed or wounded by the insur
gents, the sensation became deep ami alarming.
Various proclamations were issued by Cavaig
nac to induce the insurgents to lay down their
arms, but to no effect. J
The whole of Saturday was employed in des
perate fighting on both sides, except a lull during
a frightful thunder storm. In the afternoon of
Friday the conflicts were without intermission.
On Saturda), however, the carnage and battle
on the south side of the river were horrible.
During the w hole of Friday night, and until 3
o'clock on Saturday, the roar of the artillery and
the noise of the muskets were incessant. In this
frightful state of things the Assembly betrayed
not a little alarm. Deputations from the As.-em-bly
were proposed to go and entreat the combat
tants to cease this frarticidal strife; but all the
successive reports proved that the insurgents
were bent on only yielding up the struggle with
their lives, and their valor was only surpassed by
their desperate resolution.
On Saturday night at 8 o'clock, the capital
was in an awful state. Fighting continued with
unabated fury. Large masses of troops poured
in from all the neighboring departments, but still
the insurgents having rendered their position al
most impregnable, resisted more or less effec
tually all the forces which could be brought to
bear against them. The red flag the banner
of the republique deinocratique tt toeiale was
On Sunday morning, ot the meeting of the
National Assembly, the President announced
that the government forces had completely suc
ceeded in suppressing the insurrection on the
left bank of the river, after a frightful sacrifice
of human life; and that Gen. Cavaiguac had
given the insurgents on the right bank till 10
o'clock to surrender, when, if they did not lay
down their arms, he would storm their entrench
ment in the Faubourg St. Antoine, where they
were now driven, and put the whole to the sw ord.
The heaviest artillery had been brought to bear
upon them, and little doubt could be entertained
that the insurrection could be put dow n. The
hope held out of the termination of the insur
rection was not, however, realized. The fight
ing continued the whole of Sunday, with a fear
ful lo.s of life,esieciaHy to the National Guards.
On Monday the reinforcements Gen. Lnmori
ciere had received from Cavaignac, enabled him
to hem in the insurgents in the eastern part of
the city; and although reduced to extremities,
they still fought with incredible valor.. It was
thought on Monday morning, early, that they
would surrender; but again the hope thus held
out of the termination of the insurrection, was
not immediately realized. At half past 10 the
fighting w as resumed, and it was only after a
frightful struggle of aliout two more hours, that
the government troops everywhere prevailed,
and the front of the insurrection being broken,
the insurgents w ere either shot, or taken prison
ers, or fled into the country in the direction to-!

fewer than fourteen general officers was put hors

w ho fell, are General Megrier, Dearstand JJrca.
General Charcolnel aud Renault, and others, se
Four or five members of the National Assem
bly are amongst the killed, ami as many more
wounded. But tho most touching death is that
of the Archbishop of Paris. The venerable
prelate on Sunday volunteered to go to the in
surgents as a messenger of peace. Cavaiguac
said that such a step was full of danger, but this
Christian pastor persisted. ' Ife advanced atten
ded by his two vicars towards the barricades,
with an olive branch borne before him, when he
was ruthlessly shot in his groin, aud fell mortal
ly wounded. The venerable prelate was order
ed by the insurgents to the nearest hospital, in
St. Antoine, where he received the last sacra
tnents, languished, and has since died.
'I be editor of the Pcre Duchesne, M. La
roche, was shot in the head at the barricade

It will probably never be correctly ascertained
to what extent the sacrifice of human life in this
frightful struggle has reached. . Some compute
the loss on the part of the troops at from 9,000
to 10,00 slain, but we hope this is exaggerated.
The number of prisoners captured of the nsur-
POLYNESIAN, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14,
irents exceeds 5.000. All of the prisons are filled,
iix well n the dunsreons anil vaults of the uil
leries, the Louvre, Palais Royal, the Chnmber
of Deputies and the Hotel de Ville. A military
commission has been appointed to try such as
were found with arms in their hands, and they
will probably be transported to the Marquesas
Islands, or some trans-atlantic r rencn coiony.
A decree has been proposed with that object.
We have not space to recount the many acts of
individual neroism. .n me ouier nunu, w.
age cruelty with which the insurgents waged
war, almost exceeds belief.
Thev tortured some of their own prisoners,
cut off their ha:ds and feet, and inflicted bar
barities worthy of savages. It seemed to lie
irenerallv believed that if the insurgents had suc
ceeded in following up their most admirably con
ducted plan of operations, and having advanced
their line and possessed themselves of the Hotel
de Ville, and followed up their attacks along the
two banks of the river, that the w hole city would
have been given up to pillage. Indeed the words
pillage and rape are said to have been inscribed
on one of their banners. Not less that S0,000
stand of arms have been seized aud captured in
the faubourg St. Antoine alone.
The estimates of killed and wounded vary ma
terially. Some accounts give 35,000 as the total
on both sides, others 10,000. The number will
probably exceed 15,000. ;
On Monday evening five hundred insurgents,
who were captured at the Clos St. Lazare were
shot on the spot, and four hundred more next
morning. 1 ne struggle nau peeii mcmiunr, nuu
the military executions almost unparalleled.
Contrary to general expectation, the provinces
had been generally quiet; the only exception has
been the Marseiilane. An etneute broke out
there on the 2-2d, barricades were formed, and
after a loss of fifty National Guards killed by
the insureents, the barricades were successively
carried, and the movement put dow n. With the
exception of a small portion ot the northern
railway, where the rails were taken up, all the
postal communications have lieen maintained.
Already several legions of the National Guards
have been disarmed by Cavaignac. He has
!een empowered to form a new Ministry. The
following Ministry have been appointed:
General Cavaignac, President,
Bastide, Foreign Affairs,
Senard, Home Department,
Le Blanc, Marine, -
Kecurt, Public Works,
Gen. Cavaignac has appointed Changanier
Commander-in-Chief of the National Guard of
Paris, and Gen. Bedeau Governor of Paris.
The National Assembly were to .proceed to
elect a President in the place of M. Senard, and
M. Dufaurc has been started ns the candidate ot
the moderates. The Committee of Inquiry into
the conspiracy, and its connection w ith that of j
ine tain ot iMay, sits in permaueuce, uujounuug
only for short intervals.
The Constitutionel states that among the mass
of papers found in the lodgings of Lieut. De
r lotte, were discovered several letters irom
martme, together w ith a pasport signed by bun,
and another bv Louis Blanc. Orders have, it is
said, Iteen given for the arrest of Lamartine,
Ledru liollin, Louis Blanc, Caussidiere; and L.e
One hundred thousand iusurgents w ere on the
one side, and 250,000 troops and national guards
on the other. All the anarchist journals are sup
pressed. M. de Lamartine and Arago headed
detachments of national guards, aud boldly ad
vanced on the barricades. M. l,araigne, one ot
the editors of the Commune and an associate of
Sobrier, was arrested on Monday. M. Watrin,
Lt. Col. of the tith Legion, was arrested after
having been admitted to the conference on the
plan of the attack. He was taken iu the ranks
of the insurgents.
From the vast number of casualties in the
course of the four days during which the insur
rection lasted, almost every one had lost fathers,
husbands, brothers or friends. In every street
women apeared in deep mourning, with all the
signs of deep affliction. Vast numliers of the
National Guards were missing, and the doubt as
to their fate is almost more painful than the cer
tainty of the worst. In every church funeral
services were going on from morning till night,
and the same sorrowful symptoms of the evils of
civil war must necessarily continue unabated for
several days. The numlicr of the dead and
wounded to be still seen carried along the differ
ent streets was extraordinary. All the women,
from the highest to the lowest, were busy, many
of them preparing lint for the hospitals.
The Cologne Gazette has a letter from Altons
of the 25th inst., stating that the preliminaries
to the treaty of peace between Denmark and the
Duchies, are already signed. It is asserted that
the basis of this peace is the political sepa
ration of the duchies from Denmark, and the
acknowledgement of the right of succession of
the Agnates. Prince Ferdinand, the King's un
cle, is to act as Governor, with the present Pro
visional as his Ministry.
The agitation in Great Britain had almost en
tirely ceased. Ireland was quiet. '
Sickness. Much sickness prevails here at
the present time. The measles and whooping
cough have at length made their appearance
here. The whooping cough made its appear
ance a few weeks since, and during the last week
several cases of the measles have occurred in
town. By an arrival from Hilo, we learn that
the measles prevail extensively among the na
tive population at Hilo. Both the measles and
whooping cough are comparatively light, and no
fears need lie entertained if proper care be tak
en. Among the native population some cases
have proved fatal, owing to exposure and im
proper treatment. The mumps prevailed here
some years sine, and we understand several
cases have lately occurred. Pleurisy and bilious
fever prevail to some extent among the native
population. Several cases of influenza similar
to that which occurred here in 1845 have lately
Chile. By the Correo de Cobija ' we have
dates from Valparaiso to the 25th of August.
There is little local news of interest. The ship
Undine, bound to California, had put into Val
paraiso in distress. A French vessel of war was
lying there, to sail shortly for this place. The
Seis de Junio from San Francisco, had arrived.
The news of the gold discoveries had created a
great stir. Gold dust we are informed was sold
there for $18,00 per ounce. A large number of
vessels will probably go up from Valparaiso.
TattiTi. We have received per ' Sagada
hock ' dates from Tahiti to the 20th of Septem
ber. No news of interest from this quarter.
The French authorities are awaiting the move
ments of the home government. It was rumor
ed that they intended abandoning their posses
sions in the Pacific, but this is not at all proba
ble. Business was dull little or nothing doing.
tX? Such has been the rush of business du
ring the past few weeks, that our merchants
have had plenty to do. Every warehouse and
shop has been drained of goods adapted to the
California market, and our streets have presen
ted a moving panorama of boxes, bales and bun
dles. Some are so busy in making money that
they can hardly stop to receive or count it.
On Thursday morning, the 12th inst., the
English schooner Amelia,' of Glasgow, arrived
at this port, in distress, part of her crew having
mutinied and murdered the captain, supercargo,
first and second officers. The particulars of
this tragic occurrence are, as near u we have
been able to gather them, as follows: The Ame
lia left Mazatlan on the 9th of Septemlicr, and
the coast on the 19ih, with a cargo of $3M,niH)
in specie, bound for China, Mr. Cook ami holy,
and Mary Hudson, a serving maid, passengers.
