The LroaJ Tacifie, in wLosq cenU'r our favored
group is located, ojiens a fi-ld for commercial en
tcrpri.se such as the history of the world has never
known. The rising States of the American con
federacy on the north-west shores, and the newly
settled province of British Columbia, called into
existence, peopled, and impelled in their career
of commercial greatness by inexhaustible sup
plies of gold and silver ; the growing republics
of Central and South America ; the embryo
i States of Australia on the south, and the older
j nations of India, China and Japan on the
I west, with hundreds and thousands of largo
land small islands scattered through its length
and breadth, make this ocean the broadest field
! ever opened to commercial enterprise.
We referred a few weeks since to the com
merce with Japan, and showed there that public
expectation had not been realized in the hopes
which had leen raised of a lucrative commerce
j with that nation, and assigned plausible causes
; for the disappointment. In time, in the course
of five or ten years, no doubt, all these obstacles
' will le removed, and the foreign supply and
demand for that extensive country will be as
regular as the trade with any nation.
Our attention has recently been called to the
reports made to the American government bjfjhits'
official agent !n Amoor, Mr. P. McD. Collins,
who was in Honolulu a few years since, and be
came personally acquainted with some of our
residents. Mr. Collins sets a very high estimate
on the opening now being made for American
commerce in that new country, and furnishes
many facts of public interest. Manchooria, the
country through which the Amoor river runs,
hits a large population, made up of Russians,
Tartars, Chinese, ic, and being under Rus
sian rule, ia open to the trade with foreigners.
All tropical productions used there have to be
imported, and the traffic in these could probably
be carried on by our merchants with great profit.
The fact, however, that the mouth of the
Amoor river is filled with shifting mud banks
which extend for one hundred and twenty miles
down the channel, almost to De Castries Ray,
through which the way must be groped amid
turbid waters by soundings, slowly advancing
when the wind is fairest, anchoring when it is
not where the knowledgo of the pilot of the one
year must be renewed the next, as the channel
bhifts, and that from the 10th of November to
the 24th of June a tedious seven months' win
ter the river's mouth is blocked with ice, dis
courages tho hope that we were about to see
! forthwith a new commercial el dorado opened
j upon the west of us as the Pacific coast had upon
our cast. Tho loss of the bark Meuta on these
shoals last spring, and the probable loss of tho
schooner Sophia, were an inauspicious commence
ment of our trade with the Amoor.
But Mr. Collins informs us that the newly
founded city of Nicolaiosk is to be removed from
its present site near the niouth of the Amoor to
one of the bays on the glf of Tartary, south of
its present locality, probably Sufiren Bay, where,
it will have the advantages of a harbor of easy
access and open throughout the year. By
glancing at a map, it will be seen that the course
of the Amoor is almost parallel with the coast.
It is proposed from the 'new site of the city to
make a railroad across to tho river, thereby cut
ting of the difficult navigation of the mouth and
striking it in a lower latitude, where the winter
is shorter and the ice breaks up earlier. From
the well-known enterprise of the Russian govern
ment, and in view of the immense advantages
now within her grasp, it is not doubted that
these plans will be speedily accomplished. The
Amoor with its affluents is the river of Mancho
oria, a country already, for - the most part,
yielded to Russia, and destined soon to become
her's to the Chinese wall, nd peopled by twelve
million souls. One of the branches of the river
extends within three days journey of Pekin.
The natural resources of the country are of the
greatest extent and variety. In no other coun
try is there such an encyclopedia of mines.
Hardly any metal is wanting. Upon one branch
of the river is found tin, upon another copper
in one section iron, in others coal, gold, silver,
platinum and lead. The population will require
every, tropical product. Already it is noticed
that the great interior markets have been affected
by the opening of commerce to this side the
world. "It is raid that the trade during the
late fair at Nigne Novgorod was generally good,
and the amount of merchandise sold generally ,
fully supported ; but that in the sale of refined
sugar, which was formerly an article of very
great commerce' for the Siberian market, - and
which is also very -important to Moscow, where
it is refined, and to the southern provinces,
where the best is cultivated, a great falling off
had occurred in consequence of the introduction
of sugar into Siberia, through the mouth of the
Amoor, by the Americans." They require cot
ton and woolen domestics, every manufacture of
iron, copper or brass, for the subjects of Russia
are more apt in getting out .the. crude staples
which that omniferous empire furnishes than in
working them up into manufactures, for which
is required the skill of older nations and commu
nities. The report of Mr. Collins continues :
The right of trade and navigation upon the Son
g&ree (a braneh of the Amoor leading up almost to
the palisade without the great wall, on the Chinese
frontier) will open the heart of Manchooria to the
commerce of Russia, and mast lead to most wonder
ful result. Taken in connection with the treaties
acoorded to the four powers near Pekin recently, the :
most of the Chinese Enre, after a delay of a year,
will be thrown open to foreign commerce. Russia,
with giant strides, approaching from the north,
while England and France are pushing from the
south, most soon meet in the heart of China, and
thus a new order of civilization will be introduced,
with European trade, commerce, manners and cus
toms. w .
The year abore mentioned has now; passed,
and we hare seen an act hi the drama not named
in the programme, which must ultimately ad
vance the inSuenoe of Prance t-J England on

tial Empire is distracted by wars withtiie pow
erful barbarians at the south. The more than
suspected presence of Russian engineers and
artillerists at Pei-ho may Iw accounted for by
supping them to be runaways of the Siberian
exiles, who include most eminent men in every
profession, or that they were agents of Russia
sent to oppose the advance of England in Asia.
But to tho Asiatics tho results of all the wars,
embassies "and intigues is one the encroachment
of Europeon empire from Siberia, Hongkong,
India, Thibet and Caucasus and with European
empire, European trade. Steam navigation ujion
the Amoor is now considered a fixed fact.
" Last year," says Mr. Collins, " General Kor
sackoff ascended from Igoon to the town of
Straitnesk on the Schilkah branch of the Amoor,
a distance of over two thousand miles from tho
sea ; afterwards descended to the sea, and again
re-aseerided to the Straitnesk, thereby testing tho
navigability of these rivers during the spring and
summer. Straitnesk is a city some three hun
dred miles below Chetah, the head of steamboat
navigation." Upon such a statement of facts it
cannot bo thought visionary to anticipate that
commerce with these hitherto secluded regions
will be developed to a great extent, and the most
enterprising will be in first, and once estab
lished, 'will keep a lucrative connection. Our
merchants are favorably -situated to improve this
opportunity, and, making Honolulu an entrepot
of merchandise, place it in this and in other
Pacific Ocean markets as advices shall warrant.
The extent, of capital employed is the only limit
to the large and lucrative trade offered with this
new country of Amoor, for there is no doubt that
the demand will far exceed the supply, lhe
business with whale Bhips in this port has a limit
which may easily bo touched;, the native and
foreign population united demand but few car
goes of goods to supply their wants; our mer
chants must, and we doubt not will, look more
abroad for fields of enterprise for the employment
of their capital. "
NOTES OF THE WEEK. .
Chinese Gambling. There was a law or ordinance
in force some years ago, authorizing the arrest of
coolies seen in the street after 0 or 10 o'clock at
night. If such a law was carried out, difficult as it
might be to do so, and was sustained in operation
it would be the means of preventing, at least to some
extent, the increase of crime among the secoolies. It
is well known, that at certain times, even when near
the hour of midnight, there are large companies of
chinamen congregated in various obscure parts of
the city, for the purpose of revelling in the detestable
vice of gambling, smoking opium, and probably other
objects equally disreputable. The vice of gambling,
above all others, whether indulged in by coolies or
more refined foreigners, calls into action the worst
and most debasing feelings of man's excitable nature.
There enn be but little doubt, that the recent murder
iu Honolulu, is one of the results of gambling. The
chronicles of California and other places, show blood
stained records of tho effects of this master vice.
And it is to be sincerely hoped, that while it is vet
young in this country, such heavy penalties may be
imposed, and other necessary steps taken, as will
render it unsafe and dangerous to venture again the
gamster's chance. Our efficient and energetio deputy
Sheriff, Mr. Jouidan, has lately succeeded in dis
lodging a nest of gamblers, some, ten or twelve in
number, four of whom were fined about $50 each,
and released. ,
Deceptio IIkjiht Prized. A certain writer has
remarked that there is nothing so gratifying, and
for which people will more readily pay their money,
than for being deceived. The late visit of Mr. Ander
son, the Magician, is a good illustration of this remark.
Our people, from merchant to porter, are complain
ing of the bard times and little money in circulation,
which Is doubtless true; now just see what the good
people of Honolulu did a few days ago. A vessel ar
rives from Australia en route for S:n Francisco.
Professor Anderson comes on shore and announces
himself as a great deceiver. He frankly tells the
people so; still the poor people, complaining of the
hard times, club together, pay the Mastes-demurage
on his vessel, say 1000" pay Professor Anderson,
above all expenses, say $1000 pay all expenses, say
anotner 1000. At the very lowest estimate, the
poor and simple people of Honolulu, these hara limes,
pay 3000 for being cleverly deceived one week !
IIawaiiah Suip Bbead. We are glad to see that
the Flour Company is furnishing the market with an
excellent article at reasonable rates. This is as it
should be. Surely, with our wheat fields and present
facilities for grinding and -baking, not a pound of
foreign flour or bread ought to be in our market.
If we have been correctly informed, some shipowners
in New Bedford and New London have been doing
business on a " penny wise and pound foolish system"
this year, f oar wheat growers and millers cannot
now offer bread in this market better and cheaper -than
it can be landed here from abroad, then let
them suffer the consequences. Friend.
Tub Alleohanians. Tbis persevering company
of artists gave a highly pleasing and commendable
farewell performance on Saturday last at the Theater.
The audience.tbough rather slim, seemed to appreciate
the treat prepared for them, and by unanimous and
repeated applause proved that the efforts of the com
pany to give every satisfaction were not without fair
and adequate approval. The Alleghanians proceed
to Talcahuano, ; in the . whaleship Massachusetts,
thence np the coast to Callao, and afterwards to
Australia." We wish them a pleasant tour.
Earthquakes aso Eruptions on Hawaii. The
earthquake noticed . by us as having been felt here
and at Lahaina, appears on Hawaii to have been the
most severe ever felt A correspondent at Kona writes:
" On the night of the 20th we had the hardest aha.
king here that has probably ever been felt in Kona.
Two distinct and heavy shocks were felt" Another
correspondent says : "The only item of news is
is the report brought to-day (Nov. "28) from Kiholo,
that a fresh , and large stream of lava, has within a
day or two started from the crater on Manna Loa, .
and is now running down in a paralel direction with
that of Febuary last"

again; the earthquake was no great shakes after all.
and we have not heard of any lives lost. It waj no
comparison to'the wind, that took all the skin off
that kanaka lost year, and came near taking bis
bones too. . .
The "Alleghanians" paid Lahaina a short visit.
They performed twice tor their own benefit, and
much to the gratification c.r the outsiders and the
insiders as well. " Dead men tell no tales," or else,
the grave-yard there might speak and tell of some.
We learn that Rev. Mr. Baldwin, on application from
Mr. Waldron, interested himself considerably to se
cure the use of the church for the performances, and
so far as they were concerned, tbey were well conduc
ted, dccentlv and in order. wVo charge was made for
the use of the building, which was a little more rea
sonable than S27 a night paid in Honolulu; but with
prompt generosity, the company tendered a perform
ance the proceeds of which were to go to the church.
The manager had nothing to do with the prices, that
was left to each one to give for the benefit of the
church what ho chose. As many gave but a rial,
there was a much lamer crowd than at the previous
performances, and when half through the evening's
programme, the doors were thrown open, tnai an
might have a "benefit" and see and hear. There
was a rush then, if not before and the natives seem
ed hirhlv Dleased. particularly with the bells and
comical songs, which they could see and enjoy better
than the more artistic pieces.
The New Government House is reported as comple
ted so far as the contracts call for. It is a good sub
stantial building and better adapted for the purposes
intended, then it would be for a bear garden. If
i.e. :n .i.rm M nnt anch fivtarea as are neces-
sary into the several rooms that are intended for the
different departments, it would well complete what
has long been needed, and which, we believe, have
always bsfen freely provided at the government offices
and building in this city. The idea of attending
court and serving as a juror ou those" old hard wood
benches, which have so long ornamented the "Palace"
there, does not seem quite so inviting as eight-dollar
cane-seat chairs. We hear also that the place as
signed for the General Post Office delivery in the
new building is in size nearly " seven feet by nine,"
and still worse, the old fixtures, are ordered to be
put up not in any wise suitable or respectable to
put into so good a building as the new government
house. We hope the government officers, who have
had, or may have the arrangement of the finishing
of the rooms will not make their work or themselves
ridiculous, if the sublime is unattainable.
Found Drowsed. On yesterday morning, the
body of a native woman named Kanakaole was found
drowned. "Jt appears from evidence rendered at the
inquest, that the deceased has for some time been in
sane, and that about dusk on Tuesday evening, she
went into the water to bathe. After going in until
np to her waist iu the water, she took off her clothes,
tore them, and threw them on shore. Some natives
seeing her and knowing the state of her mind, and
fearing some accident, called to her, and endeavored
to persuade her to give up bathing as it was getting
dark. She repeat eJly tried to escape alike their ob
servation and entreaties, which she did so effectually
that she was not seen again alive. The verdict ren
dered by the jury was, that the sail woman came to
her death by an act committed while in a state of
Dasuaways. At the lost regular meeting of this
association, the following additional articles to the
constitution were adopted, to go into effect December
10, 1859: ; .

present at the meeting, wlten the application shall be presented.

Me. Editor. IntheffrerfweT of the 8d of Nov.,
is an article upon the bite Attempted Insurrection
in Kau" which instead of giving the " facts" in the
case, does net give a single correct statement, except
that some twenty of the ringleaders were brought to
justice. Now there is no proof whatever that the as
sessors put on " imperious airs, or were ovr nice
in the enumeration. Neither did they " disdain to
talk Hawaiian," though they conversed with each
other, (to accommodate the native assessor who is
learning English,) in the English language, it having
been suggested to him before hand that it would be
a favorable chance for him to make some proficiency
in speaking the language. When the first demon
stration of opposition was made at Honuopo, the as
sessors retired to the next village and entered a com
plaint against the parties who talked loudest,
upon which the District Justice issued a warrant
and sent the Deputy Sheriff, Mr. Laanui, and one or
more constables with him to arrest the rioters. They
returned without effecting anything. The Deputy
said that they would not allow him to arrest any of
them, and farther than that, threatened to throw
him into the sea from a " pali" near by, if he went
down again to attempt to make arrests. They agreed,
however, to come to the Justice's residence on a cer
tain daf and have their trial, but on a day or two
gave notice, that or another certain ' day they were
coming to take the foreign assessor, Mr. San ford, and
carry him out of the district towards Uilo and send
At the appointed time, hearing that a crowd had
really assembled, the writer went down to gratify his
curiosity and see the terrible rebels. There was the
crowd sure enough, but not half so excited as they
wouA hr.ve been at a dog-fight or a horse-race. The
"sticks, knives and poi beaters" were all in the
Ll)eputy's eye, which by the a ay is none of the keen-
r mi t . . i I . i . m .
est. ine justice was taking uown me iiamea ot m3
ringleaders and at the same time giving tbem in
charge to the Deputy to bring them before him for
trial on the next day. Having collected them togeth
er, Mr. Laanui rode on after, quite at his ease, and
seemed quite surprised when the Justice told him
that the prisoners' friends had rescued them and were
taking them home.. After urging theDeputyin vain
to attend to his duty and retake them, the Justice
himself started after them in earnest, leaving Mr.
Laanui shaking 'with fear, an old native woman
holding fast each side of his horse's bridle and beg
ging him not to venture among the rebels lest he
should be killed. After a boyish squabble of fifteen
minutes, in which no bones were broken nor blood
spilt, four or five of the instigators were again arrest
ed by the District Justice, W. T. Martin, Esq., '.'and"
such of the constables aud well disposed natives as
he called upon to assist him. In short, it waaa free
fight, "and all who bad no body-guard of old women
to hold them back, pitched in."
Thus ended the "rebellion in kau" and a few
days after when J. U. Coney, Esq., mode his appear

in the infected portion of the district, who knew any

During the excitement, a notice was posted up

troubles and encouraging them to resist the assessors.
As it did not bear the seal of IL M. the Emperor of
France, and besides this was in tolerably good Ha

be implicated in its promulgation ! ' 1 ' "
t Had, not Mr. San ford been unpopular among the.
natives here, and worse than that a non-resistant,
there would probably have been no demonstration of
resistance to the assessors. .The natives of Kau are
not a whit ahead of any others in "pluck," though'
