On the niht of the Sth of Oct., whilst lying to in a gale with a heavy head sea, the Maguolia pitched away the Fore Topmast and Main Top-ga'!ant mast, doing much damage to standing rigging lefore the wreck could be cleared. On the 17th Oct., in the Chiriuky pasage, whilst going at the r.ue oi nine kiiois, iiarry riucs oi Uino, fell rrom the Jio-boru overlward. The helm was immediately put to starboard, which had the effect to bring the ship broadside to the wind with all the sails aback; at the same time severed the line which confined the life buoy to the quarter, and lowered the lee boat. Our hopes of saving him were small, as he did not avail himself of the buoy but seemed to be depending entirely upon his own re sources, in a heay irregular sea that would at times completely engulf him. But by almost a miracle he was saved by disrobing lainscir oiall his surplus clothing and coolly keeping to the sur face when most men would liave sunk from cold aud exhaustion, being at the time in latitude 50 5 North. 4th Nov. lat. 35 N, Long. 1G0 West, spoke Ship Phcnix, Williams, of new London, 1350 lbs this season, from OchoLsk Sea uouuu to liauama. ery truly yours, u.

Whatever may appear in its columns, reflecting on individuals, corporate bodies, or nations, whetherruc or false, the government, as the sole proprietor of the estab-' lishment. is fully responsible for. It is no palliation to plead that it does not pretend absolutely to control the acts of those employed by it ; for so long as an agent is employed, his principal is responsible for! every official act of his. every loyal man ought to esteem as sacred as his pri vate reputation. And we are glad to record that the Privy Council has retraced its steps and sought a reconciliation in an honorable way, though it has unfortunately been accompanied y an insulting thrust which carries with it as much force as though it emanated officially from the Privy Council Cham ber. NOTES OF THE WEEK. Thanksgiving. Thursday the 25th of December has been appointed by His Majesty as a day of Public The leading article in the last Pelynesian is of such Thanksgiving and Praise. a nature as to demand notice from us as public jour nalists. The article brings up again, the Home affair, as it is called, and the conduct of the Government in relation to their promises to the Sailor's Home Soci ety, but like the prescriptions of a quack physician, instead of healing, it only opens fresh the closing wound. We should have permitted the subject to lie The little tug-boat had a hard day's work of it on Tuesday last, towing in against a strong trade wind no less than eleven vessels. There were twenty arrivals at this port during that day, all whalers except one.

While seeking to show that its own error is at most a venial one, it labors hard to make out a case against the trustees, and then, without adducing a proof, charges them with being at error in the matter. While it proffers the calumet of peace, it stoops down to uncover the buried tomahawk, and in so stooping, reveals the glittering blade of a scalping knife hidden in its bosom. We say it, for how can it be regarded other than the act of the government, which, while it owns its error, seeks to throw blame on others ? Had which our friend Burgess has recently executed, are sufficient of themselves to recommend him to those who may require his services. The portraits of tho King and Queen which hang at Ihe post-office door, though only copied from daguerreotypes and not per fect, bear a close resemblance to the originals, and show that the artist possesses the elements of success and good taste. Strangers in town, as well as resi dents, who desire to secure portraits to send to their friends at home, will find it worth their while to call on Mr. Burgess, over the posUcfficc, on Mr. Benson, Dagucrrian Artist, over the Commercial printing rooms, or on Mr. Stafagenwald, Ambrotype and Lahaina.

"noivUnu, proffers the pipe of peace, but takes care to accom pany the proffer with an insult, in order " to afford new proof that the King has about him advisers, who are no respecters of persons, using tho phraso in its f.imiliar sense." 'The Trustees were also wrong." So savs the oracle. "As fifteen minutes are to fifteen months, so is the hasty action of the one to the attenuated error of the other." The alien uatcd error of the Trustees ! And in what consists their error ? Perhaps in boldly reminding tho government that truth, uprightness and honesty are the tower of its strength. Perhaps it was because the lioard dared to remind it that a violation of it3 promiso and of the guaranteed rights of a seconll party, are not so trivial an affair as it may be regarded in the Interior office and other de partments of the Government. Well, be it so. They probably have the satisfaction of knowing that they were contending for right and justice. But the Poly nesian would seek to create the belief that it was so gifted as to have remembered, as long ago as Aug. 30, the existence of the law of 1854, regulating the boundaries for granting licenses, and that the leader in the paper of that date was intended to illustrate it. There is no more allusion in the Polynesian of Aug. 30 to the above law of 185-1, or to any thing connected with this controversy, than there ia to the color of the man in the moon, unless perhaps the article is read backwards, commencing at the end. Had the existence of that law been re membered at the time the above article was penned, it would have been proclaimed louder than the cock ever crowed for St. Peter's benefit. The truth of the whole matter is this : the govern ment in 18o5 promised to the trustees cf the S. II. Society, that no licenses should hereafter be granted on that block. Such promise was undoubtly wrong, and should never have been given, since the Privy Council had not the power ; but it was made and vio lated in the belief that it had such power, and with out a recollection on its part or that of any body else, that it had not the power so to do. In July, 185G, without consulting that body, they openly violated their premise given before to the trustees, in order as we are officially informed, "to afford new proof that the king has about him advisers who are no respecters of persons," and it m'ght have been added, no respecters of truth. Against this course the trus tees protested as being arbitrary and a violation of rights proffered to them. So the matter rested till about the beginning of tho present month, when the king's return allowed further action. In the mean time, or during October, a legal loophole is fortu nately discovered, through which the Privy Council can honorably mend " an innocent little slip," which might otherwise have" been a more difficult task. Last week an informal memorial was presented to His Majesty, on behalf of the trustees, who was pleas ed graciously to accept it, an1 order that a resolution be passed and published, expressive of regret at the action of the government in the matter. This honor able course, satisfactory we suppose to all parties, would have ended the strifo, had not the government press, through one of the members of the Privy Coun cil, fanned the dying embers by abusing the trustees of the S. II. Society, and charging them -with blind ness for not being able to see through a gravestone, and with "fifteen months of attenuated error" in not discovering what the " law members" of the Pri vy Council appear not to have been able to discover during the same period. But as for " the motives" of the government in violating their promise being " unimpeachable," the less that had been, said on that point the better, fcr the public have long had and may wU have their doubts.." How -2ar-. influence .was brought to bear in the decision of the ve?tio3i whether a license should be granted or not, from tlw fact that one of his Majesty's Ministers had a pecuniary interest at stake in it, is a matter which the public are fully competent to decide without any official plastering. Bat don't say that the motive of all concerned hx hurrying the matter through the Privy Council were 44 unimpeachiblc," for nobody will believe it.
