Tfce History wt CwsiasiBsmsite Seosnsdrel.
The story of the life of a notorious rascal, ia
sometimes both interesting and profitable, as af
fording to the reader an example to be shunned,
and giving to all mankind a knowledge of the
practices of rogues, and an opportunity to avoid
them. We propose, to-day, within the limits of a
newspaper article to lay before our readers a brief
sketch of the life of such a man, a man, who, if
he gets his deserts, will some day offer to tho
world a practical illustration of the efficacy of
capital punishment. Capt. Henry Hayes, alias
Capt. "William II. Hayes, is well known in Hono
lulu ; and his recent flight from San Francisco,
with a vessel, cargo, and valuables to a consider
able amount, and his subsequent escape a few days
einco from the officer of Customs on Maui, in the
Hawaiian Islands, are too much of a piece with
his well earned reputation to excite astonishment.
Hayes, who is now about thirty-two years of
age, was the son of poor and not very respecta
ble parents in Cleveland, Ohio, his father being
the keeper of a grog shop in that place. At an
early age he acquired a knowledge of the man
ual part of the seafaring profession, and was, iT
we are correctly informed, subsequently married
in Cleveland. About the year 1852 he was so
unfortunate as to mistake a few horses belonging
to a neighbor for his own, and sold them accord
ingly. Docketing the cash. Unfortunately again?
for the world, he escaped prison by a flaw in the
indictment, and marrying another woman, whose
doubtful character was more than compensated
for by the possession of a small amount of prop
erty, he fled from the danger of a more perfect
indictment and landed, with he, in California.
On the passage out, Hayes formed the acquaint
ance of a San Francisco gentleman, over whom
he acquired considerable influence. He persuad
ed this gentleman to advance sufficient money to
establish his wife in a retail liquor saloon, and
then by promises of a great speculation and
princely returns, assisted by a confederate whom
he employed to personate the part of a wealthy
San Francisco merchant, he persuaded him to pur
chase the bark Otranlo, and fit her out in the
most costly style for a China voyage. The Olranto
being at length prepared, Hayes sailed in her as
master, and this was the last the owner saw or
heard of him or of the vessel until his return to
San Francisco last winter, after an absence of
five or 6lx years.
After Hayes's arrival in China, he ran the
Olranto for a while between the various Chinese
ports, taking advantage of every opportunity to
raise funds by means of bottomries upon the ves
sel, until at length the bark was seized to settle
her liabilities. With the money thus procured
he bought the bark Bradley, Jr., and after
pursuing as long as prudent the same course of
borrowing and raising moneys on bottomries, he
suddenly left. Shangbae was one of the last
ports, perhaps the List, at which he touched in
China. There he employed a tailor to furnish
him with $500 worth of clothing for himself and
$40 for each of the crew. The clothing was
made and delivered, and on the morning of his
departure, the poor knight of the shears came off
to get his money. Hayes received him very po
litely, requesting him to wait a while until he
was more at leisure. At length the vessel ap
proached the mouth of the river, and the tailor,
beginning to 44 smell a mice," urged him -again
for the immediate payment. 44 Sir," said Capt.
Hayes, "it is very inconvenient forme to pay you
now ; I shall return in two weeks, and then we
will square our accounts. At tho present mo
ment I am going to sea, and if you don't get into
your boat you shall go with me." The tailor
went ashore without his money.
The rascal next turned up in Port Adelaide in
Western Australia. Here he conspired with the
captain of a ship, to defraud the owners of that
vessel out of 20,000. In collusion with him,
Hayes brought suit for the recovery of four thous
and pounds, said to have been advanced by him
on the security of a bottomry bond. The case was
decided against him, his bond pronounced fraud
ulent, and Hayes was left penniless, he having
sold the . Bradley, Jr. to enable him to meet his"
expenses and carry on the suit.
In Adelaide, he married again, ai.d with his
wife proceeded to Melbourne, where, he sold to a
party of miners a share in a vessel in which he
had not the slightest interest. Soon after, by
some accident, he was engaged to take command
of the bark Orestes, bound for Vancouver's Isl
and. The Orestes entered the port of Honolulu
on her way, and remained in this harbor about
six weeks. The voyage thus far had been one
continued scene of trouble and bickering between
the Captain and his passengers. From one of
bis passengers he had, while in Australia, procur
ed the sum of $2000, all the money he had,
for the purpose of investing it in liquor and sell
ing it on their joint account, to the steerage pas
sengers during the voyage. He received the mo
ney, but forgot to buy the liquor; and the con
sequence was that the imprudent speculator lost
his money. While in Honolulu, his wife, a lady
of interesting demeanor and irreproachable char
acter, procured a separation from him by act of
law, on account of his brutal treatment towards
her ; ,and during the stay of the ship here, Mr.
Clement, the supercargo of the vessel and agent
of the owners, having discovered, besides various
dishonest acts on the part of Hayes, a Conspiracy
with others of the crew and officers to run away
with the vessel and cargo, took the responsibility
of removing him from the command of the ship.
Hayes subsequently left for San Francisco in the
Adelaida, leaving worthless drafts, debts, Jbc,
behind him, in Honolub, to the amount of near
two thousand dollars. His wife took passage in
the same vessel, for the coast, with the expecta
tion of joining some friends in California, and
bidding adieu forever to her worthless husband.
But her woman's nature prevailed, and after their
arrival at San Francisco, she, alone and friendless
in a great city, returned to the arms of him who
had forsworn his vows to love and cherish her.
. Capt. Hayes saw the old owner of the Otranto
inSan Francisco, and succeeded in abating his
resentment by stating that he had several thou
sand dollars due him from the errors of the
Orestes, which he would pay over u t t re
ceived ; and that gentleman, thinl! " 'i

T7e quote the follow
i the CaliToKi-
Tmt Flight of th EiXErrrA. The brig Ellenita,
Capt. Ilayes, which IiajU.j employed some time in
the coasting tade, was advertised a few days ago to
sail for Australia, and offered to take passengers and
freight at reasonable rates. The captain, who was a
smart Jeremmy Diddler laid in his stores in the most
extravagant manner. He bought furniture, carpets,
provisions, wines, liquors, and, in fact, everything
necessary 'to the comfort of a sea-voyage. Unfortu
nately, however, Capt. Ilayes forgot to pay for the
articles. He bought the brig for $800, and paid
S500 on it. He then placed her upon the ways of
Tichcnor & Co., and thoroughly repaired her on 4
credit. He then advertised her for Melbourne. and
commenced laying in his stores, without disbursing a
cent, so closely did he manage his cards. His butch
er, grocer, market man, and. strange to say, even
his lawyers, were victimized to the tune of $500.
The only man who felt any doubt of his honest inten
tions was the man who filled the water casks, and
who libelled the brig for his bill, amounting to 80.
The U. S. Marshal had, or was supposed to have had,
the keeping of the brig. On Sunday night, Aog. 28,
however, there sprung up a brisk breeze, and the
Captain being a good sailor, could not resist it, and
spreading his sails to the favoring gale, he quietly
"drew out" from the harbor, and cleared the HeatU
instead of the Custom House, forgetting the little
formality of "the papers." As soon as it was ascer
tained that the brig bad gone there was a terrible
hubbub, and Marshal Solomon started the steam tag
Martin While in pursuit of her, but it was like
starting a snail to catch a swallow. The steamer re
turned with a report that the brig" was non est inven
tus. Jllta, Aug. 30.
More or tub Ellekita. We yesterday learned a
few more particulars relative to Capt Ilayes of the
brig Ellenita, which left this port on Monday morn
ing, August 29, at two o'clock, without clearance or
other papers, and deeply in debt to parties in this
city. It is said that a number of persons had taken
passage on the brig and had paid before haUU, but
the vessel sailed, leaving nearly all of them behind.
Capt Hayes, however, carried off the wife and three
children of a gentleman who is one of those left He
also carried off a trunk belonging to a Mrs. Arm
strong, and containing all that lady's title deeds to
nroDertv in Svdnev. Capt Ilayes, however, did not
carry off his own wife, that lady having left town the
day before be sailed, we learn tbat the following
parties have been swindled by Captain Ilayes : Mr.
Mnrn'ann StSOO: Mr. Tiehenor. 250: shin carpen
ters, $800; victuallers and grocers, 1200; vegeta
ble dealers, 300; a gentleman, rorborroweu money,
S300: leeal advice. S 100: a bill which his lawyer
promised to pay, 114; money borrowed from his
lawyers, 30; plumbers, 500; and a multitude of.
other liabilities of less note, making in all about
$4000. The fellow also managed to swindle Mr.
Morrison out of some forty tons of beans. It is sup
nosed by those who appear to be best informed, that
he will steer for Tahiti, where he will lay in a cargo
of oranges for the Sydney market Herald.
The California papers do not however tell the
whole story. We are informed that in addition
to the articles above mentioned he carried offBome
2000 worth of jewelry, bought on credit, and
five or six thousand dollars in cash which bad
been deposited in bis hands on freight or for safe
keeping by the passengers. It is worthy of men
tion, as a mark of the shrewdness of the rascal,
that the greater part of his stores were purchased
at suburban establishraents-of grocers who
would be very unlikely to hold communication
with each other, and who would think it a great
stroke of business to supply a ship with goods
and a business as safe and profitable as it was
After taking French leave of his San Francisco
friends, and carrying off the wife and children of
one of his passengers whom he left behind, Capt.
Ilayes next turns up in the Hawaiian Islands.
He entered the port of Kahului, on the Island of
Maui, on Thursday of last week', the 15th, with the
design oT taking on board some fresh provisions,
and probably of smuggling a few goods, on
shore. Unfortunately for the carrying out of
his intentions, the gallant Sheriff of that island,
Feter II. Tread way, Esq., got an inkling of Lis
proceedings, and ever on the alert when duty
calls, hastened at once across the mountain to ar
rest the rogue upon a warrant for the violation
of tho revenue laws. He arrested him on shore,
on the afternoon of the 18th, but subsequently
consented to accompany him on board that he
might give certain necessary orders to his mate.
Once on board, the Captain detained the Sheriff
upon various pretexts, until it was too late to go
on shore, and they arranged that ho should sleep
on board, and in the morning they would land
and proceed together to Lahaina, while the
mate remained to carry the vessel around
by sea. Early in the morning, however, tho
Captain announced to the Sheriff his deter
mination to resist the arrest, alleging that it
was illegal and declaring that he should go to sea
immediately, and gave the Sheriff bis choice to go
ashore or remain on board. Being unaccom
panied by any force, he was obliged to submit,
and having been landed, was subjected to the
mortification of seeing the Ellenita squaring
away before a fresh wind. Capt. Ilayes forgot,
before leaving, to pay for the supplies procured
at Kahului, amounting to about $100. -In
allusion to this affair we do not wish to
throw any discredit upon the Sheriff of Maui,
who is an excellent officer well known and
highly esteemed throughout the islands. Rogues
rarely get to windward of him. In this case he
has done what ninety-nine men out of a hundred
would have done, and under the circumstances he
is not much to blame for the escape of one of the
greatest rascals that ever weent unhung. Where
Hayes will' go next remains a problem. It is
thought by some that he will touch at Kauai and
complete the equipment which Mr. Treadway in
terrupted on Maui. It is hardly likely that he
will eventually dare to show bis face again in
Australia or China. Possibly he will go to some
South American port, touching perhaps at Tahiti
on his way, and there, forfeiting the vessel, will
dispose ot her cargo and apply the proceeds, with
the cash already in hand, to the accomplishment
of further schemes.
Ilayes is a man of little education and of but
little talent except for rascality. He is very
plausible and gentlemanly in behavior when he
has an object in appearing so, and seems to have
the dangerous faculty of impressing strangers
with the belief that he is an honest man. He is
minus one ear said to have been bitten off in a
fight. His most intimate friend and accomplice
is a man by the name of Robert Parkinson, who
navigates his vessel for him, and plans the rogue
ries which Ilayes carries out. Whatever may be
said in extenuation of his crimes, he is now to all
intents a pirate, and we trust may meet the re
ward bis conduct so justly deserves.
Thb Sailobs Hons. This excellent institution is
now fairly open for the season; and under the super
intending care of Mrs. Thrum, we doubt not that it
will afford during the next few months, a pleasant
home for hundreds of seamen. Although in a pecuni
ary point of view the nome has not been a successful
speculation, yet it has answered the chief object for
which it was erected, by affording a cheap commo
dious and respectable residence for sailors during
their stay in this port, and by raising the standard
of other sailors boarding houses in Honolulu. The
people of Honolulu deserve credit for the public '
spirit which erected and has sustained the institution
in its work of usefulness. The nome is now in ex
cellent order, and is fitted for the reception of seventy-five
boarders. A shipping office is connected with ;

T ) C223TE3 BBAJirJ. TM tWO seamen ut mo
0a-Vhb were witnesses in Court on the recent
trial of Capt Mason, applied to the English Consul,
on Thursday, for a discharge from tl ship, on the
ground that it was wrong to compel them to sail
again under the authority of a man against whom
their testimony had borne so strongly. The Consul
requested Mr. Bissett of the Hudson Bay Company,
and the masters of the British ships Gomelza and
Humphrey JVelson, to constitute with himself a board
of arbitrators. The seamen pleaded their cose before
the board, yesterday, and the decision will be ren
Ah Ihtcbestiso Case. The authority of the clerk
of the market to collect a daily tax from the poor
natives who sell fowls, eggs and vegetables, every
morning, at the corner of Hotel and Fort streets, has
long been a disputed poffnt, and we trust that an
opportunity will now be afforded to test the question
thoroughly. "A native was brought up in the Police
Court yesterday morning for refusing to pay the tax,
and was fined five dollars and costs by his Honor the
Judge on the strength of that section of the law
which provides that every person who shall violate
the regulation of ,any publio market shall be fined
five dollars for each offense. The defendant appeal
ed and the case will come before the Circuit Court.
Chinese .Physician. We are glad to learn that
the application of the Chinese Physician for a license
to practice among his countrymen, has been granted.
A majority of the medical board, which consists of
Drs. Hoffman, Ford and McKibbin, reported in favor
of granting the license Dr. McKibbin dissenting.
In all committees of three, it is presumed that a
majority is sufficient to execute the purpose intended
by the appointment, and the Minister of the Interior
in granting the licenses, pursues the course that will
best meet the interests of the government and all
concerned. Besides, it is but an act of simple justice
to the Chinese portion of our community.
A Lecture. In compliance with the wishes of his
friends, Mr. M'Duffee will deliver his temperance
iw.m r iim BArtnnd time, in the Bethel, this
IVwaUl Vs IVl UV -"""" w
evening, at 7J o'clock. The pubfio are invited to at
tend. This lecture, it will be remembered, was
delivered before the Dashaways a week since. It was
so much liked at the time that those present wished
others to have an opportunity 6f listening to it; and
we are confident that all who attend the Bethel this
evening will enjoy the entertainment We under
stand the charms of music will assist to make the
evening pass off pleasantly.
The New Baeert. A hard bread manufactory
has been established in connection with the Hawaiian
flour mill in this city, and one of the two great ovens
attached to it, commenced its work yesterday, turn
ing out specimens of ship biscuit that would do credit
to any bakery in the worl 1. The bread is kneaded,
rolled, cut and stamped' by machinery; and it is
estimated that after the establishment gets fairly at
work, it will use up about a ton of flour per day.
This is a kind of enterprise that we like to see. It
tends directly to develop the resources, and increase
the wealth of the community.
Billiards. Mr. Edward Burgess has just refitted
his apartments. in the Commercial Hotel, and the
lovers of Billiards can amuse themselves now to the
top o'their bent on his splendid tables, one of which
has been furnished with Phelan's recently patented
combination cushions just imported .by the Raduga.
These rooms are cool and airy, and proficients or
learners in this healthful game will find every thing
essential' to their comfort and wants, provided by
Mb. Randall Smith, under whose superintendence,
the rooms are now carried on.
The Next Mail. The Ocean Express was the
only vessel up at San Francisco for this port, at last
advices. She was to leave as soon as she could pro
cure a crew probably not before the 8th. Unless
her departure should be delayed until after the ar
rival of the mail steamer, on or about the 13th, it is
possible that we shall receive no United States mail
until the arrival of the France Palmer, due about
October 20. .
Custom Hocse Storage. Mr Goodalc, the Col
lector Geueral of Customs, has issued, with the ap
proval of the Minister of finance, a new scries of
storage regulations. They are to the same effect
substantially, as the old ones, with the exception
that the rates of storage are reduced about 25 per
cent, on the average, and that it is provided that no
liquors can be taken out of the stores for exportation
or consumption in less quantities than a single and
.Live Stock. Three fine California horses were
received per Yankee on Monday last, consigned to
Captains Wilcox, Meek and Stott All of them are
noble looking animals, and they will form an ac
ceptable addition to the limited stock of good car
riage horses in Honolulu. John Montgomery, Esq.,
President of the Royal Agricultural Society, also re
ceived by tfie Humphrey Nelson, in excellent health
and condition, several thorough bred Dorking fowls.
A Bill or Expense. At about the commence
ment of the epidemic among the dogs, a gentleman
discovered the body of an ungainly specimen of the
race, lying cold and lifeless before his door. He em
ployed a native to remove it for a rial. The next
morning another dog lay in the same place, involving
the expense of another rial ; and since then a new
dog has lafo in the same place every morning being
placed there, doubtless, by some enterprising specu
lator who knows how to take advantage of the times.
A Full Freight. The Liholiho which sailed for
Uilo on Tuesday last had as much freight as she
could stow. Besides other cargo she carried a large
quantity of luuber, designed for the construction of
three churches on Hawaii one, a Catholic church,
in Hilo, and the other two Protestant churches in
the district of Hamakua, which Messrs. Harris and
Swain, contracted to build some time Bince, receiving
their pay for the work in pulu, pia, &c,
Lahaina Matters. The new Government house
is going up rapidly. Mr. Thomas returned in the
Maria yesterday, from the superintendance of the
mason work. The Superintendent of Publio Works,
Mr. Wood, hopes to have the building ready for use
by the December term of the Circuit Court
Mr. Neilson is as comfortable as could be expected
rests well, has no fever, and although not out of
danger, is thought to be in a fair way of recovery.'
Laws in Relation to Seaman. There is hardly
a place in the world where the port laws are more
liberal than in Honolulu ; and we know of no place
where the laws are more efficient in relation to the
shipping of seamen, than at this port They protect
alike the Bhip master, the shipping master, and the
man ; and cases of trouble arising under them are
The Rotal Party. Capt Gates, of the E. F.
Willetts, showed his respect for his Majesty, upon
the arrival of the King at Lahania, from Honolnlu,
by firing a royal salute. At last account the royal
party were still at Molokal, intending to leave at an
early day en route for Hawaii. .

Miller, who was convicted here for several offenses,
and pardoned on condition he would leave the coun

has been rebuilt by Messrs. Burns & Emmes, was
launched again on Thursday last much to the as

San Francisco, Sept 2, 1859.
Mr. Editor : Two more mining towns have been
destroyed by fire, since the date of my last letter
"Murphy's" and 44Campo Seco." both flourishing
towns, have been added to the long list of conflagra
tions. In both cases, the work is supposed to be that
of an incendiary. This week, Columbia came very
near sharing the same fate. The devouring element
was, however, conquered, after some twenty houses
had been destroyed. Vallecito and Murphy's are
being re-built in better shape than ever, with that
energy which is peculiar to Californians.
Horace Greeley having strongly urged a fusion of
the Republicans and Anti-Lecomplonites of this state
in order to defeat the administration party, at the
next election, the leaders of each party manifested a
desire to act upon the suggestion. Accordingly, the
central Committee of these two parties met in this
city, and also in Sacramento, for several days in suc
cession, but they have failed to agree upon a basis of
fusion. Still, it would not be surprising if the ad
ministration party will be defeated. A more general
interest is manifested in political matters by all
classes, this year than ever before. The merchants
of this city have agreed to close their places of busi
ness on the 7th inst, election day.
A movement is being made in the southern part of
the state, to separate the counties of San Louis Obis
po, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Los Angeles, San
Bernadino, and part of Bueqa Vista, and to erect
them into a territory. The proposition meets with
no favor in this part of the country and will probably,
be defeated. No good could possibly result from such
There seems to be a good prospect of an extensive
trade springing up between this coast and the Amoor
River. Otto Escbe, Esq., formerly a merchant of
this city, who has been estabished some time at Nico
layefisk, a city near the mouth of the river, has
chartered the schooner Caroline E. Foote, and sails
for that place, with a full cargo of goods in a few
days. The Manchoors, inhibiting Southern Manchoo
ria number several millions, and are said to be much
wealthier than the Chinese. They obtain their sup
plies from Canton, by way of Peking, and as goods
can be imported thither by the Amoor and Songhary
rivers, at a much cheaper rate, it is probable that a
brisk trade will spring up with them, through that
channel. Mr. Burling, of this city, is now at Niso
layeffsk, putting together a small steamer which he
brought with him thither for the river trade. The
Russian steamer Amoor, which visited Honolulu on
her way out, is still running on the river; and it is
said that the Russian Government is having four
steamers built at Hamburg for the Bame trade.
The lower part of our city is now supplied with
water from the reservoirs of the Bensley Water Co.,
very much in the way that New York is supplied by
the Croton Works, and in a few weeks, the whole city
and suburbs, will be amply supplied with this great
luxury, pure water. The works of the company
are constructed on a large scale, and when fully com
pleted, will cost about 750,000. It is estimated
that the people of this city expend 500,000 per
year for water alone ! The completion of the water
works will enable them to enjoy the same luxury in
greater abundance for one-third of the expense.
As another example of home enterprise, we might
cite the woolen factory now being erected near Fort
Point This will give employment to about 95 hands.

The affairs of the Louisiana Tehuantepeo Co. are
in a sad plight Their property on the isthmus has
been seized for debt, and their agent had to escape
imprisonment by flight This company has been
hampered by debt from the beginning, and European
capitalists did not take hold of the business, as it was
hoped they would. Our communication with New
Orleans via Tehuantepeo will cease October 1st
The sale of the Collins steamers to the P. M. S. S.
Co. was confirmed by last mail. They will commence
running immediately on the other side, and will be a
vast improvement on the vessels formerly employed
between New York and AspinwalL The company
expects to reduce the time to 20 days on ordinary, '
and 18 days on special occasions, when these steamers
connect on the other side. It is rumored that the
opposition line is to be bought off again. Rates of .
passage to New York are very low now : 1st Cabin,

The Indian difficulties still continue in Utah. An

They were killed in the battle.
The brig Ellenita, Capt W. H. nayes, which has
been advertised for Australia for some time past, has
disappeared very mysteriously from our harbor.
