C. 8. S. Steam Frigate Mississippi.
This vessel left cur harbor on Thursday morning,
for San Francisco, and took a mail for the United
States and Europe.
The Mississippi has been sixteen days in port,

officers of the Mississippi rendered the occasion One
-of much enjoyment and satisfaction.
The Mississippi, although not a new vessel, is
a fine serviceable ship, and has been engaged in
many important commissions, in all of which she
has acquit tedherself with credit. Her several voy
ages have taken her to almost every quarter of the
globe, and the present expedition will enable her to
complete the circumnavigation of the earth, inne

In the Morning Herald of .Sydney of the 24th of
August, is an account of the trial of John Ross,
Master of the schooner Black Dog, charged with
the murder of a Lifou boy of Luperana, in Xew
Caledonia. His honor the presiding judge, intro
duced Mr. St. Julien, the Commissioner of His Ha
waiian Majesty to the ruling authorities of the in
dependent groups of islands in Southern Polynesia,
to watch the course of proceedings ; and for that
purpose, Mr. St. Julien w, s allowed a seat of dis
tinction near the judges.
The result of the trial was a verdict of guilty
against Captain Ross, with a recommendation to
mercy on account of the prisjners previous good
At the Levee of His Excellency the Governor
General, on the 24th of May, in celebration of the
Queen's birth day, Mr. St. Julien enjoyed the rri- '

V ' Weekly Steamers.
, We leura from the S. F. papers, that an ar
rangement has been made between the Mail and
Nicaragua Steam Ship Companies, by which their
vessels will sail on the 1st, 8th," 15th and 24th of
v each month, which will furnish a weekly line be
; tween the two cities Xew York and San Francisco.
Such a change cannot but be an accommodation to
the public, both in the matter of mails, and for the
convenience of passengers. Especially will it be
regarded with favor by persons going from these
islands to the eastern States, as they sometimes
have arrived a day or two after the departure of the
. semi-monthly Steamers, and have been detained
from ten to 15 days in San Francisco before a pas-
. sage could be procured. ' Such a delay w ill be ob
viated by the new arrangement, which, wo learn
from the Alfci, was to have gone into effect on the
24th of October last.
CT The new arrangement for steamers to leave
every week, went irto effect on the 24th ult., when
tho Nicaragua steamer promptly sailed, taking
treasure and express matter Lr the Atlantic states.
Murder and Suicide.
A clorod man by the name of Thompson, who
resided at Ewa, on thw island, administered poison
to his wife, who- was a Spanish woman, on Sunday
? . " J. .... ...
uv jia uuimo, irom wnien she soon died.
Suspicion of foul pl?y having been excited, an in
vestigation was had and a post mnrtan examination
made of tho deceased, which confirmed the fact;
whereupon, Thompson tied his feet together, attach
ing a heavy stone to tne cord, and threw himself in
to a small but deep pond where he was drowned
His body was recovered and buried by the police.
Jealousy was the cause of this dual crime, and
Thompson had posted his wife a few days before,
forbidding all persons harboring or
on Lis account. .
Robberies on Kauai.
The rather unenviable reputation of Kauai for
robberies seems likely to be sustained for an indefi
nite period. The store on the Koloa Plantation has
-.been twice robbed within a short period, of several
- hundred dollars worth of property. Three men
have been committed for trial for the former offense,
upon tho testimony of an accomplice.
. Kauai is cursed with some, bold rascals who
cary c2 tefes. bodily, break into the stores, and
rob on a large scale; we hope the gang will bo ul-
timatdy broken up, and sooner the better.

Ships, Shipping, &c.
The Steamer West Poi.vt, from Kauai, arrived
on the 4th inst., with a very respectable list of pas
sengers and freight. :
The brig Fawx, Barret, arrived on the 4th in
20 days from San Francisco bringing no mail but
dates to the 11th from that city.
The clipper schooner Ladt Jaxe, Penhallow,
arrived on the 5b, in 17 days from S. F. bringing
the U.S. Mail of the 20th of S;pt. Her passage
hence was 27 days, and during the run both ways,
he has experienced calms and light winds, which
is the reason of her long passages. She sails again
on Monday for S. F.
The Steamer Pettoxa was advertised in the
S. F. papers of Oct. 19th, to sail in a few days for
Valparaiso. This, we suppose, settles the ques
tion about her coniii.g to the Islands again; and
some new move must be made before we shall see a
line of Steamers established.
The schooner T. II. Aixex, .arrived on
the 10th inst. 15 days from San Francisco; she
brings no later mail, but San Francisco papers to
the 25th ult. They contain no special news.
We leurn from Kauai, that Mr. IInfTechlarger,
who has recently purchased the Wailua Falls Es
tate, is preparing to plant about fifty acres of cot
ton, and also intends to cultivate rice and the vine.
Three ten yoke teams of cattle were recently seen
on the way to his estate, to break ground for the
cotton. The teams belonged to Mr. Charman, of
We rejoice to see any attempt made to increase
our products and to develop the resources of the
islands and we earnestly hope the enterprise of
the present prorrietur of the Wailua Falls Es
tate will be abundantly rewarded by good crops
and abundant harvests.
We have received favors from Capt. Penhallow,
J. W. Sullivan, Adams' and Wells, Fargo &. Cos.

Wreck of the Yankee Blade.
By our late papers irom San Francisco, wc learn
ot the loss, oi the above named steamer on the 1st
of October, on her passage to Panama. She left on
the 30th of September, with over 700 passengers,
and treasure to the value of 150,000. The account
of her loss is thus given by Mr. Vought the Purser

would permit. During the night, Capt. R's son,

Tbe Allied Fleet.
After a long period of suspense, the allied Bri
tish and Fretch Squidron wLich sailed from this
port in July last have been heard from. On the
evening of Oct. Cd the frigate Forte, the corvette
Eurydice and the, brig Obligado, arrived at San
Francisco, in 25 days fvom Petropoloski, while the
British vessels President, Pique and steamer Virago
had gone to Vancouver's Island.
The following account of their operations at the
north we take from the S. F. Herald, of Oct 5th,
and is as extended an account as our limited space
The following particulars of the attactof the Al
lied Fleet upon Petropoloski, in addition to those
published by us yesterday, were furnished to the
Echo du Pacifquc, by on officer of the French fri
gate La Forte:
On the 25th of July, the fleet consisting of the
English frigate President, 50 guns; the Pique, 40
guns; the steamer Virago, 6 guns; and the French
frigate La Forte, GO guns, 500 men ; L' Eurydice,
28'guns, 230 men, and brig L' Obligado, 12 guns
120 men. left the Sandwich Islands for Petropoloski.
The advanced period of the season excited fears of
many difficulties. lnese lears were realized, ior
the coast was enveloped in thick fogs, which greatly
retarded the progrees of the vessels, and compelled
them to advance with extreme caution. The fog
was such that the officers could scarcely distinguish
the signals at a distance of two lengths of the ship.
For the same reason the Eurydice was unable to
keep company with the rest of the squadron, and
only came up with it at Petropoloski. The fleet
arrived is sight of Petropoloski towards the last of
August, alter having experienced very bad whether.
The season did not pciniit any delayyand prepara
tions for action were made forthwith. The place
offered obstacles which were by no means expec
ted. The Allies thought they would have to attack
with superior forces, a place poorly defended and
poorly iortilied. They found themselves instead,
before a formidable fortress, defended by eight se
parate forts, armed with more than 120 cannons
and 12110 men. Just as the fleet was about to com
mence the bombardment of the place, Admiral
Price fell mortally wounded by a ball discharged
accidentally whilst loading his pistols, the ball
passing through his heart. Consternation spread
among the crews. Admiral Price was loved and
respected by all. Ilis courage, his coolness, his
kindness, and the numerous proofs of daring which
he had given on several occasions, had gained for
him universal regard. This melancholy disaster
on the very eve of luttle, deprived him of the op-
portunity of distinguishing himself, and the squad-
orn of otic of its best officers. It was on the mor
ning of the very day fixed lor the attack, that Ad
miral Price expired on board. Out of respest for
Ins memory, the attack was postponed until next
On the 21st of August the engagement commen
ced. The Russian frigate Aurora, of 40 cuns.
an the DIna, were sheltered behind a sort ot sand
key or ban in front ol Petropoloski. The Allied
Fleet concentrSted their fire upon the three most
advanced forts. They went at the time about
one mile distant from the town, which they could
not rrossiblv reacli through the narrow and l:inir.
i y o
rous inlet leading to it, without first silencing the
outside batteries. Two hundred and fifty pieces
of cannon thundered at the same time. The balls
from either side passed over the sand bank and
struck the forts and ships. After fjuite a lively
cannonade, the three latteries were silenced the
Russian cannoniers were killed, or a!andoned their
guns. The cannon were spiked, and the vessels
without trouble on that side advanced towards the
town. The next day .they opened a very lively fire
upon that joint and upon the Russian ships. The
halls perforated the Aurora at -all points, and car
ried away her mainmast. The order to land was
given, and under the direction of an Americau pi
lot, who had represented the environs of the town
as quite easy of access, and not very woody, the L
iorces oi tne Allies lanaeu upon the beach and ad
vanced upon the principal redoubt. But, whether
by mistake or treachery, they found themselves en
tangled among thick brambles and hushes, which
arrested their progress at every step, and afforded
the Kussian marksmen a secure and almost linden
etraoie sneiter. me similarity in the unuonns of
the Kussians and hnghsh, created confusion in the
ranks of the French, as they were afraid to fire
upon the red uniforms, thinking thev mizht l.e
