SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1855.
The Minister of Foreign Relations had a special
audience of the King, on Thursday last, to present
to Ilia Majesty the following address :
To Hit Sfajetty,
, King of the Hawaiian Islands.
Mat it Please Yocr Majkstt : We, the foreign
ers resident in the District of Jiona, Island of Hawaii,
beg, on the decease of Uia late Majesty, Kamehamefaa
III, to offer you oar most sincere condolence on that
mournful event, by which both yoa ' and we have been
deprived of a worthy Prince, during whose beneficent
reign the inhabitants of these Islands have wonderfully
advanced in education and prosperity.
We also tg leave to present our hearty wishes for
your own hapfteaei' honing' that you may be blessed
with a lengthened ad peaoeful reign that your sub
. jects may yet further progress in enlightenment and civ
rlization, and that all persons resident in your kingdom
may ever have reason to regard with joy, your ac
ccwion to the throne.
'We have the honor to subscribe ourselves,
1 our humble and obedient servants.

I WM. R. SIMERSOX,

THOS. II. PARIS,
H. N. GREEXWELL,

Hia Majesty was pleased to receive the address
graciously, and to command the Minister to express
to the subscribers His thanks for their good feel
ings towards him as sovereign.
Cwstom House Statistic.
We direct attention to the statistics in our pre
sent number, prepared 'by W. Goodale, Esq., Col
lector General of Customs, with great care, from
the Custom House books. " "Had we 'space, we
should be glad to nuke an extended comparison of
the past with the present yearly returns, but we
hare room for only a few of the more important

It will be perceived that while the value of
'imports in 1854 exceeded those of 1853, tbeCus
ftom House receipts are less in the latter than the
'farmer year. " This apparent error is accounted
for by the feet that the abolition cf tonnage dues,
which' book effect during the last 8 or 9 months of
, 'the. year, reduced the revenue from that source
' -5,237 65 ; while the aggregate revenue for the
. year:is Uy $3,514 59 lees than 1S53. As the law
vwill be in force during the whole of 1855, the loss
will be the whole $8,000, which formed the revenue
from that"Bource in 1853.

The above comprise the most important items
nn the tables -published by the Collector General,
; for the details of which we refer to the tables them
laelve, which give a synopsis cf the commercial
- business of the islands at a glance. We are sorry
to observe a decrease in the domestic exports, and
it requires some considerable degree cf ingenuity
. to discover how imports to the value of $1,265,
022.71 are paid for by an export of $274,029.70
Exchange, of course, comes largely into account
here; but we are of opinion that there is a large
stock of goods now here, not yet paid for, and for
which the islands are indebted.
Second Foreign Church of Honolulu.
Intelligence has recently been received from the
U. States, that the Rev. Sir. Strong has accepted
a call from this churcli, and may be expected to ar
rive in April to enter upon the discharge of the du
ties of pastor of that church and congregation.
We fool well assured he will meet with the cordial
reception, and the best wishes of the community
for his success in the new sphere in which he is
' railed to move. It is an iffiportairt field fur the ex
ercise of ministerial talent, and one which cannot
remain vincoltavated without serious detriment to
the cause of morals trod religion at the islands.
We are heartily glad of the decision to which Mr.
Strong has come, and wish him a successful and
rpeedy voyage to the islands, where he will be wel
comed by many who have anxiously looked for a
successor to the Rev. Mr. Taylor, whose failure of
health and retirement from the ministry, they have
regarded as a public calamity.
Gcixo fob Scom CaXB .The New 0rleansbelta
contains the particulars of some experiments with
guano on the sugar cane. The guanoed part "turn
ed out the largest and heaviest canes in the field,
and produced of first and second clarified sugars
2,500 pounds per arpent." Tha same ground had
never before produced " mora than 1,000 pounds
per arpent." With guuio, the experimenter is
convinced, no rotation of crops is required to pro"
duce the- fiuest and heaviest canes in Louisiana.
Another planter, who had used guano, says he
" never saw a heavier stand and higher canes in this
t state than the guano canes." From the great in
crease obtained from the application of ammoniacal
manures to wheat and other cereal grains, we have
knag been satisfied that they would prove equally
beneficial to the cereal sugar cane, while, from the
large quantity of cane obtained per acre, and the
eonjparativeiy high price of the sugar,, they would
afford a pfofit which wheat-growers could not hope
The Weather. It is a long time since we can
remember such a succession of southerly blows as
we have had this wkiier. The south and west
winds set in about the 20th Dec., and have continu
ed, with short intervals-, to this date. The quan
, tity of ram fallen rs much greater than usual, and
on some of the islands the damage to the public
roads has been great. The trip of tho steamers
and coasters have been eomewh&t interrupted It
has been quite cool the thermometer as low as 57
n the mornin.
Special Election in Honolulu.
. At the special election on Wednesday, to fill the
vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Mr. Ii,
Z. Kaauwai was elected by a majority of over 500
votes. At Waialua, also, an election has been
held, though not on the day specified by the law.
Keawehunahala is the candidate returned; bat it
is our opinion that the only way in which a legal
election can be held in that district is, for the
house to order it, after it shall have assembled.
Thus do we interpret the law, and we 'believe the
legislature will be of the same opinion. . ; ;
State of the war at last advices.
Austria has at length abandoned her timid pol
icy, and has concluded a treaty of alliance with
France and Great Britain. There is scarcely a
doubt, now, that Prussia will very shortly follow
her example, and with those two powers all Ger
many will unite. The effects of this treaty w ill be
important: Russia will now be compelled to keep
a larger portion of her troops in readiness to act on
her frontier towards Bohemia, Oallicia, and the
Danubian Principalities. Of course every effort
that the Czar is called upon to make in that quar
ter will be so much abstracted from his exertions
in the Crimea. The English papers state that the
condition of their Army before Sevastopol is im
proving. Reinforcements were constantly reach
ing them, and more were every day leaving Eng
land and Franco for the seat of war. Comfortablo
wooden barracks and warm clothing had been sent
out to protect the troops from the inclemency of
the season. General Canrobert writes that he bad
advanced his works within eighty yards of the wall
of the fortress; that he could enter the place by
storm at any moment, but that he refrains from
doing so until he has battered down the houses
which have been strongly fortified, and from which
the Russians might cause a great havoc among his
troops pent up in the narrow' streets. He affirms
such a cannonade as the Russians kept up was
never before heard. In the Paris Constitutional,
of December 1st, appears a ' very remarkable arti-
cie, wnicn nas a semi-omciai air, intimating that
the 'Allies contemplate raising the siege of Sevas
topol lor the present, and devoting all their ener
gies to the destruction or expulsion from the Cri
mea, of the Russian army Drought up to relieve
the place, "in our opinion, .says the Constitu-
tionel, "the siege of Sevastopol was finished and
the campaign of the' Crimea commenced on th,e day
when the arrival of Danneberg's corps : placed
Prince Menschikoff at the head of one hundred and
ten thousand men." Once Danneberg's army
overcome and dispersed, it is argued Sevastopol
would surrender or be carried by a single assault.
The weather favors the Allies. Frineo Menschi
koff has been joined by all the disposable troops
within a hundred leagues, and cannot expect.
amid the snow and rigor of a Russian winter, to be
reinforced by another man, while the fresh troops
for the Allies are pouring in by sea, and may contin
ue to do so all winter. Danneberg's corps was
conveyed in such hot haste to the relief of Mens
chikoff, that it arrived without provisions, without
artillery, without ammunition or stores of any kind.
It bivouacs without shelter, and the rains had
already commenced, which transforms the steppes
into marshes "and closes the i passage to any arri
vals by land. "It is against these demoralized
soldiers," eays the Constitutionel, "that our army,
revictualled by an immense fleet, reinforced by
40,000 combatants full of ardor, and encouraged
by the victories of Alma, Balaklava, and Inkerman,
is about to assume the offensive. It is in their
dispersed ranks that it will vanquish Sevastopol."
S. F. Herald.
The Revenue Returns for the Province of Victo
ria have just been published. On the quarter end
ing September 30tn, the total 'increase on the ac-
pegate revenue is 92,580, and on the vear 333,
847. The increase on the arerecate of the territo
rial revenue on the quarter is 160,343, and on the
year 413,433. The total increase respectively, as
compared jrith 1853, is 352,1)29 on the quarter,
and 7474180 on the year.
From New Zealand, we learn that the net reve
nue for the year, after deducting the costs of collec
tion, is estimated at 146,315, and the expendi
ture, exclusive of the costs of collection, 37,329
leaving a balance of receipts over expenditure of
Gold Produce Market. Tho Return of the
Gold exports from Sydnev'from January 1st to Ser-
tember 30tb, of the present year, shows a falling
off compared with the same period in 1853, of 224,-

ported during the same period in 1853, was 1,371,

SOUTH AMERICA. '
Important from Xeto Grenada Capture of Me!t,
and death of Gen. Herrera.
The Panama Star and Herald says : "By advices
received here yesterday from Carthagena to Dec. 14,
we have received official confirmation of the total
defeat of Melo and his party, at Bogota, on the 4th
instant, after an obstinate resistance of two days,
in which the loss on the side of tho revolutionists
was very great, and that on the part of the Consti
tutional Army comparatively 6mall. We regret,
however, to have to announce that General Thomas
Herrera, our townsman, is among tho killed, as al
so Captains Carro, and Alerto, besides Gen. Men
doza mortally wounded.
Melo and many of his leading partizans were ta
ken prisoners, but ex-Presidents Obando, Castro
and others are still at large, but it is said were
soon to bo arrested.
The Battle of Arequipa Defeat of the Government
troops Execution of Gen. Moran.
From the Star and Herald, we learn that after
the engagement between the forces of Don Domin
go EKasand Gen. Moran on tho heights of Coede. the
lormer reurea wnn tne remnant ot nisarmy to the
city of Arequipa, where Gen. Moran determined to
follow him. The battle lasted all the nieht of the
30th of November, but about 8 o'clock in the morn
ing the Government soldiers began to give wav.
owing to their ammunition falling short, whereupon
tue cavairy anu ise citizens pursued tnem ana cap
tured Gen. Moran. The retreating Government
forces were then pursued on all sides, and the great
er number taken prisoners ; and it is said that on
ly three of the officers and fifteen men escaped, all
the rest, consisting of fifteen hundred men, having
been killed, wounded or missing. Gen. Vivanco
was seriously wounded, and by last accounts had
returned to Lima. Gen. Moran, three honrs after
being taken prisoner, was shot after the formalities
of a court-martial had been gone through. Echin
ique now femaines President only of Lima, Callao
and the Chinrhas. All the rest of Teru is in the
hands of his enemies. Generals San Roman and
Castilla have united their forces, and are within a
short distance of LimA.
Louis Napoleon has offered the directoM of the
Collins' line, in cash, 450,000 sterHrfg, or $2,
250,000 for their three steamers, or $760,000 for
any one of them. Should Congress conclude to
change the contract now existing between the U.
S. Government and the line, then it is understood
the company will prefer Bellinfr their ships to run
ning them at losing rates. I do not believe, howev
er, that Congress will consent to the loss of a line
which has redocted so much credit upon the coun
try. Some compromise will be effected that will
save us ihe ships.
It is not true that the Russian Government has
protested against our admission of the vessels of the
Allied Fleet into the port of San Francisco with the
Russian Prizo ship Sitka, as a violation: of neutrali
ty. Our right to admit or exclude one or all of the
belligerents from "right of asvlum" in our worts
is not contested. The Russian Minister here, how
ever, uas inquired wnat is to be our policy in that re
gardand the answer returned him is, that we sliali
grant the right of asylum to all the billigerants
