FRIDAY, JIUGUSTX, 1S59.
The general dullness of business for the put few months re
mains unaltered. Goodi sold to arrive per Carl Mtlcker, Sen.,
and now in course of delivery, are the only signs of activity risi
ble. The trade evidently wish to obtain some news of the whal
ing fleet before going in deeper. Until some certain report is
obtained, this vacillating course will be apparent. The unsettled
sute of affairs in Europe has led to the placing or some foreign
vessels under the Hawaiian flag, and these will be followed pro
bably by others. The Carl Melckers, Sen has done so, and
taken the name of Mulolo (Flying Fiah), and the Kauai will also
be placed under our flag. The Hanoverian bark Verden arrived
yesterday from Bremen, consigned to Messrs. Hoffichlaeger at
gupenhorst. She sailed 5 days before the Carl MtLchers, Sen.,
lb latter vessel arriving on the 18th, making, it is reported, the
quietest passage ever performed between the two porta. The
Wrdm, we are informed, wiU be laid on for oil for Bremen. The
C. MelrKtr Sen. is offered for sale by her Consignees. Messrs
Melchers it Co. She is fully found in every particular, and is
well adapted for a packet between here and San Francisco.
The Gambia has been chartered to proceed to French Frigate
BhOiJ to bring np the remainder of the saved articles from the
wreck of the South Seaman. The prices obtained for those sold,
arrived last week by the Kamehameha IC brought very good
prion, considering their damaged state.
The France Palmer, of the E. D. Line, having a full cargo of
pulu, sugar, salt, etc, engaged, will sail the latter part of next
week for San Francisco. Her freight list of $2,013, as given by
us last week, included passage money. That of the Fein, under
the same reckoning, would have reached $3,000 or thereabouts.
The Oretet has commenced discharging cargo, previous to
being repaired and put in a seaworthy condition.
The arrival of the Franklin id from the coast of California, on
the 21st, gives us the first fall whaler, although the arrival of the
Tahmaroo at Lahaiua on the 24ib, gives them the first report of
the northern fleet. She was from Kodiak, and hails 150 bbls,
wh. Her report will be found in the " Memoranda." The
Fianklin id will land her oil for shipment to the C. S.
The Josephine sailed ou Thursday for Jarvis Island, having on
board as passenger C P. Judd, Esq., the Agent of the American
Guano Co., who is most indefatigable, in his management of the
business entrusted to him.
The American Guano Co. expect a vessel here en route for
Jar vis Island, by which, or by the sch Astoria, we may receive
The following is an abstract of the direct arrivals and depar

Among the articles of import for which the wants of our Chi
nese population has created a trade, is that of opium, and our
attention has been called to the amount of the same. We find
that by the Yankee, Felix and Frances Palmer, arriving within
this last month, 6.570 taels were entered at the Custom House,
and we are informed that some 12,0 0 taels have been entered
for consumption since the 1st of January. Without taking such
a figurative jump for the amount in assimilated English weight,
as our worthy confrere of the Commercial, who assumed that
3700 taels were equal to 5,600 ounces, and reckoning the tael as
IX ounces, (the ounce avoirdupois bearing the same ratio to the
tael that the pound does to the catty,) we find that our imports
of this Drug, as it is termed in Indian commercial parlance, have
reached in the past eight months about 6 chests of the weight of
Patca, which is legally a picul or, I33 lbs. This appears to us
to be largely in excess of requirement for Chinese use, taking the
sparse population of that nation in these islands into considera
tion; but it may arise from the ract that the orders (all on Chi
nese account) have arrived in a bunch together, as, at San Fran
cisco, it frequently happens, (and the late marine reports from
that place would seem to favor this belief,) or else they have been
imported for anticipated demand.

Ctruion of tte Few York Supreme Court on Salt of Good to
In the Ban Francisco Wfekly Times, Aug. 6, we find the fol
lowing, which is undoubtedly as important to our merchants as
to those of San Francisco or New Tork :
In our last isue of the Time we gave a short synopsis of a
oecision recently delivered in the Supreme Court of the State of
e Tork, regarding the purchase of a cargo of snpar specified
arrive and oe delivered by the 1st of August, 1856, but did not
Tire until the 2th of Aufrurt. The first decision
f this case was published in the Timet some months siuce, and
w.racted considerable attention. It was then thought to be an
erroneous decision ; but the Court of Appeal has decided other-
se. Sellers of merchandise will, of course, look to this here
aTtcr. The following is the synopsis of the decision alluded to :
A law case of some interest to shippers has been decided In the
f uprfme Court of the Stale of New York. The action was for
the non-fulfillment of a contract for the delivery or sugars, which
4 been purchased to arrive at a certain date. The plaintiffs
Purchased a cargo of seven hundred tons of sugar, from the East
Indies, at 6Ji cents per pound, to be delivered on the 1st or Au
rast, law. The ship put into Singapore in distress, and did not
"ne till the 26th of August. Sugars were raising, and the own
of the sugar notified the purchasers that the ship would not
m time, and that they considered the contract at an end,
wt offered them the sugar at the market price wheu it should ar
The purchasers had notified the sellers that they would
ue the sugar on the contract whenever it should arrive. The
agar was sold at 6 cents, and suit was brought for damages for
fon-deliverv. In the Court below the purchasers recovered a
erdict for $I6,7S6 damat-es, and on appeal to the General term.
"e verdict was foe the same parties, assessing the damages at
-'il5, with an allowance of 500 for costs. The ruling of the

San Francises and IInlala I'swajr,
The route between San Francisco and the Hawaiian Islands is
one much traversed, and well calculated to try the speed of clip
per fleets. As a race course, it has claimed the attention of nau
tical critics, who have watched with interest the anxious endeav
ors of many an ambitious master to urge his ocean-steed to show
her points in the often hard contested strife for victory.
The average length of pasages at different seasons of the year,
compiled and averazed from a register of all the trips actually
made between the above ports during a period of five years, end
ing August I, !So9, kept in this city, in which 427 passages are
enumerated, we give below. It will be seen that there has been
an arrival and a departure, on the average, of every eighth or
ninth day during that time :

Ma. Editos: Flaving occasion recently to visit San Fran
cisco, I took pasage in the bark Franc ts Palmer, Capt. J.
Paty, and returned in the same vessel, and I feel it no less a
duty than pleasure to bear testimony to the good appoint
ments of the vessel for passengers, and the sterling qualities
of her commander. For more than twenty-five years 1 have
known Capt. Paty by report, as an able commander, sailing
from th is port, but it has never before been my privilege to
sail with him. My personal experience now has confirmed
(in my estimation) the truth of his reported ability as an offi
cer, and I have reason to believe that every passenger, officer
and sailor would unite with me in this testimony. All the
vessel's duties were performed with the rssularity and quiet
of clock work, without bluster or noise. Whilst the proprie
tors of this line are runuing such vessels as the Palmer and
the Yankee, with such officers as Capt. Paty, they deserve,
and 1 trust will receive, both the thanks and the patronage
of the public. Respectfully yours,
S. N. CaSTLt.
