THE POLYNESIAN.
SATURDAY, JUNE 30, IS55.
Gf With the present number of the Polynesian,
our editorial labors cease. For something over tlx
years, during which we have had this responsi
bility, we hare not failed to have a weekly chat
w ith our readers, nor to provide such a summary of
news, local and foreign, as the means at our dispo
sal have afLrded. - How we have discharged those
responsibilities, we shall not attempt to state; our
readers have judged already. Eat of this we are
certain; no one of our numerous readers has eo full
a conception of our imperfections as we have ; nor
can any one who has not had some editorial experi
ence, correctly estimate the disagreeables attending
the life of an editor.
Bat we do not intend to enter into the details of
our joys or sorrows ; that would require a volume,
where wo have space but for a few brief lines-.
We have endeavored, by our best ability, to advo
cate those measures, and to exert that influence,
. which 6ecraed to us best calculated to promote the
peace and prosperity of ths nation, and to advance,
in the community, the interests of commerce, agri
culture, education, morality, virtue and religion.
.That our performance has often fallen far short of
our aim and desire, is a subject of regret ; while if
we have had any influence in the direction indica
ted, we are thankful for it.
In taking leave of those with whom we have so
long been on intimate terms, we must be allowed
to state, that we have Dot willingly wounded the
ieelings, or done an injury to any; and if inadvert
ently we have done so, we are Borry for it, and
crave indulgence.
It only remains for us, in passing over to our
successor the scissors and the quill we received from
him in 1849, to wiji. him a pleasant career in a
difficult and often
embarrassing
vocation ; to as
sure the government we have endeavored to serve
in a conscientious manner, of our continued inter
est and anxiety ior its prosperity ; and the Young
Sovereign, who has so recently ascended the throne
of his ancestors, of our ardent desire that his reign
may be a peaceful and happy one, over a virtuous
and thriving people.

New Wheat.
The Schooner Ka Moi arrived yesterday from
Maui, with a full cargo of wheat of the new crop,
and of a fine quality. From all we can learn, the

domestic consumption, and at'prices below those
now ruling for shipping flour in Boston market.

Shortest Time Yet!
Thirty-five days from Jew York ! I
Passengers and the mail which left New York on
the 21st of May, reached Honolulu on the 2Gth of
J une, being the quickest trip yet made between tbo
two points. The clipper 6hip King Fisher, which
brought the above from San Francisco, was but
nine days and twenty hours from that port to her
anchorage here, being one of the shortest, if not
the shortest, ever made between those ports-.
Dates by this mail are from Liverpool t May
5th ; for which we arc specially indebted to Kico
& Co., agents of the Pacific Express Company, and
t G. B. Post &, Co. of San Francisco.
From California and the Atlantic States, the
nnws is of no special importance, though posses
sing local interest to many. From Europe, the in
telligence comes down to the 3d of May from the
Crimea, to whichTpoint the eye of the whole civil
ized world is, and has been, eagerly directed for the
past eight or ten months.
' Our dates, previous to those by thia mail, were
to the 17th of April, up to which time, from the
5th, the Allies had been bombarding Sebastopul
with 500 guns. From the 17th April, up to the
1st of May the fighting had been continued, but
with greatly diminished vigor; and at last advices,
isad ceased nearly altogether, with a probability
fiat the siege-would be raised.
An unsuccessful attempt to assassinate the Em
Wor of the French was mada on th 2Sr.b Anril
from which he escaped unharmed.
The assassin, who proved to be an Italian, was
apprehended on the spot, fired two pistols at Ilia
Majesty but happily without doing him any injury.
. The Emperor, accompanied by the Empress, sub
Bviuently visited the Opera Comique and were
most enthusiastically greeted. On Saturday, on
replying ts the congratulations of the Senate, His
2i yesty said
1 fear nothing from the attempts of assassins.
There are existences which axe the instruments of
fie decrees of Providence. As long as I shall not
nave 1 mailed my mission 1 run no-danger.
"The New York Tribune civM the following cen
tral view of the news :
- -The Bartio arrived on Friday evening last, bung
ing intelligence from Europe to the 5th inst. At
Scbastopor" the Iwmbardment had ceased, the am
munition of the Allies be ing exhausted. But at
tacks on the Russian outworks and sorties from the
garrison still continued with quit as desperate
fighting as ever. In a very sharp engagement the
French had taken a Russian cat th work, with a
number of mortars and some two hundred Russian
prisoners ; but it is admitted on all hands that the
Allies have gained no serious advantage and that
the 6iege must presently be abandoned. Of late
the great fort on the north side of the harbor has
taken some part in the operations. Its guns are
found to carry quite over the town and reach the
allied intrenchmente, proving beyond doubt that if
by any chance the place were taken it could not be
held. How the . Allies are to withdraw from the
difficulty in which they are placed is now the ques
tion; but a short time must settle it. Under these
circumstances Louis Bonaparte has prudently de
cided not to venture to the Crimea.
Lord John Russell has returned to England and
given to the House of Commons his story of the
Conferences at Vienna, the facta of which do not
differ from our previous accounts. There is now a
rumor that the nugatory negotiations will bo re
sumed undtr Prussian auspices, and predictions,
sre made that the Allies will accept the compro
mise vThich the cabinet ot Jienin win propose.
Meanwhile in great popular agitation
is springing up against the ilai-try. Meeting ,s of
the most solid classes of citizens have been w
Sheffield, Derby, London, and Liverpool, ana wm
nn dnnhl he repeated all over the kingdom. The
imbecility of the government, the fatal mismanage'
ment of the war, the vices of the aristocratic sys
tem, nre the themes discussed at these assemblies;
and there is every indication of a movement unpar
alleled in Eftfland since the Reform Bill. In the
face of these exciting events, Parliament drags
through its waary round of stereotype debates, in
which the public take very little interest, and
which command the attendance of comparatively
few members of the House. It is manifest that
the real public life of England is not to be found
either in Parliament or in the Cabinet, and that
the questions which most concern her future histo
ry are at last, through the force of circumstances,
carried into the popular arena xor agitation anu ae
cision by her people.
The verr Latest.
Berlin, May 3, 1855.
A despatch dated St. Petersburg, May 2, has
been received hero.
Under date of Sebastopol, evening of the 28 th of
April, it has the following:
The fire of the enemy is moderate.
Their approaches progress 6lowly.
We have established, at one hundred yards from
Bastion No. 4, a row of rifle pits, which have
served to form a continuous trench of communica
tion. War Department, London, May 4 7 P. M.
A sharp engagement took place on the night of
May, 1st in the Iront ana leu attack; tne wnoie
of the Russian rifle pits were taken, eight light
mortars, and 200 prisoners. The whole affair was
brilliant for the allies.
Constantinople, May 2, 1855.
Canrobert epcaks to his troops of immediate op
erations. . Orders have been received to prepare transports.
Varna. May 3, 1855.
A sharn enjraeemcnt took place on the left-at
tack before Sebastopol on the night of the 1st of
May.
All the Russian rifle pits have been taken and
200 prisoners.
Paris, Friday, May 4.
The Patrie of thia Evening has the following:
There is a report current to day that on the 2d
of May the beseigers took posession of Borne very
important Russian works of counter approach, af
ter a fierce engagement.
On the following day, the 3d of May, The Rus
sians are reported to have attempted to retake the
positions, which remain in the hands of the al
lies. It was rumored that a despatch had been receiv
ed in Paris from Gen. Canrobert, intimating his
expectation of an immediate attack from the Rus
sians. Before Sebastopol, Friday morning, May, 4.
On the night of Wednesday last, May 2, the
French under General Pelissier, having fcken up a
position before the Quarantine Bastion, advanced
briskly upon the bastion No. 4, attacked the advan
ced works which the Russians had raised to pro
tect that bastion, and carried them at the point of
the bayonet.
In this attack the French took 12 mortars from
the enemy. The engineers immediately occupied
the ground, and began to carry on a flying 6carp.
At daybreak they had succeeded in establishing
themselves in the conquered works.
Last night (Thursday) the Russians made a gen
eral sortie, with the object of retaking their lost
ground. After a sanguinary combat they were
driven back into the place.
Our losses have been great, but bear no propor
tion to those of the enemy, nor to the advantages
gained.
Thia (Friday) morning (May 4) the Russians
have neither a man nor a gun outside tbo regular
enclosure of the place.
The following, from the 8. F. Herald, exhibits a
state of facta highly interesting to scientific observers of
meteorology, and is from the pen of Alex. S. Taylor.
The Siarm of 31st December, 1854.
By a curious coincidence, suggestive to meteorologists.
it appears from recent and reliable accounts, that the
great storm, which at the same hour visited both Califor
nia, Oregon, the Colorado country. Lower California
and the Sandwich Islands, and was prolonged in the
succeeding days on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of
Mexico and Central America, was experienced also in
the countries lying upon the Baltic Sea, in England and
in India.
On January first, says the Illustrated News, a heavy
gale of wind was experienced in London from the
southwest, "accompanied by rain. It will be recollected
the ctorm of wind and rain commenced in California
about midnight of 31st December.
This hurricane it would seem made its appearance al
so At Bombay, on the Malabar coast of India, precisely
at the same time it full on the Aorth Pacific coast - Bom
bay is in about 75" east of Greenwich, San Francisco is
123" west of Greenwich, making the two places about
IQ- .1 - 1 'i . J a. l ' . . . .

uegrera vi lucguuuc ap&rc, inai is 10 say, some 1 1 ,
vzu goograpnicai nines. Ban trancisco is in
21 north, and Bombay in latitude 20" north
latitude
The storm (called typhoon in Asia, or as meteorolo
gists say, Cyclone,) visited Bombay about midnight of
December 5lst with tremendous force, and is recorded
in tne i tiecrapn ana uourxer oi that city as "one never
to be forgotten by those who experienced such a visita
tion tor the nrst time. At daylight the various direc
tions in which the tall Palmyra palms had fallen, afford
ed a palpable indication of the rotatory character of the
storm." It wrecked the steamers Phlox, J. Jeejebhoy,
Sir George R. Clerk, Snake, and Assaye, with eleven
other heavy craft in the harbor, besides doing immense
damage to buildings and property.
The storm at Bombay opened about midnight, which
as before observed, was its time of appearance in Cali
fornia, the Ureat bait Lake Valley and Honolulu. It
commenced in all these places by blowing from the
Southeast "At 7 o'clock in the morning (at Bombay)
it had veered completely round to the opposite aide of
the compass, at west-north-west, which was its charac
ter also on the Pacific, as far as we have learned.
Notices of this cyclone appeared in the San Francisco
Herald of ICth January and 12th of March last. In
Bombay where there are several gentleman in the East
India Company's Marine Service, of great attainments
in the Science of meteorology, it appears to have been ob
served with much attention. It is probably the most
widely extended storm of wind ever recorded in the an
nals of history.
SUPREME COURT.-.In Equity.
Robert Clocstox, Administrator of Frederic J. Por
ter t. Feteric Ogde.
J udge Robertson acting as Chancellor, delivered his
decision as followst
The complaiuaot, by his counsel, moves the court to
grant an injunction against the defendant in this cause
to appoint a receiver to take charge of and wind up the
unsettled business and accounts of ths late firm of Por
ter and Ogden, and that the defendant be ordered to ap
pear personally before this court, or the master, to
answer on oath such interrogatories as may be adminis
tered to him, on the part of the complainant
In support of this motion the learned eounsrf argues
that the answer filed in this cause, by the respondent, is
not a compliance with the order to make discovery an I
to account; that tbc answer is altogether insufficient,
and that the respondent has been guilty of mismanage
ment and negligence in the discharge of the duties de
volving upon him as surviving partner, whereby a large
sum of money belonging to the assets of the late firm
has been lost, and inasmuch as he has failed, after the
lapse of a reasonable time to render a proper account
If appears by the respondent's answer, that there Is
still, after the lapse of ten months since the dissolution
of the partnership, by the death of Frederic James Por
ter, a considerable portion of the joint property remain
ing unsold, and exposed to the risk of damage by fire,
as well as to deterioration in value.
We think the answer of the respondent, together with
the whole tenor of his conduct in reference to this mat
ter, displays an unjustifiable degree of reluctance on his
part, to render an account to the representatives of his
deceased partner, In regard to the property in which
they possess an equal interest with himself.. Judging
from the statements contained in the respondent's an
swer, we are constrained to believe that more than a
reasonable time has already been allowed him to settle
up a business of the moderate extent of that transacted
by the late firm, or at least to account fully in every
respect, and we look 'upon his having failed to do so
as a breach of his duty. It does not appear by his. an
swer that any inventory was made of the partnership
effects, or any statement made up of its assets and lia
bilities at the time of the dissolution, or any balance
sheet to show the position of the firm, or to show how
each partner's account Btood with reference to the joint
estate; and what is still more extraordinary the respond
ent now states on oath, in his answer, without any ex
planation whatever, that he has not the means of ascer
taining ib5 amount of consignments made to the firm,
or the aniCnnt of comcissions earned and received by
it, during the few years of its existence. The respond
ent does not state whether or not be has appueu any
part of the partnership funds, since the dissolution, to
the extinguishment of the partnership debts, if any
there were, while he alleges that the sum of 5000, in
cash, has been stolen from those funds in his custody.
These circumstances seem to call for the interference of
this court, in order that the rights of those who are
equally interested with the respondent, may be speedily
ascertained and carefully protected.
We have consulted many of the authorities on this
subject, and we think the present case comes within the
rules which usually guide courts of equity in affording
their aid. (Kents Com. 7th Ed., Vol. 3, Tage 63.
