In the Buoton Cora. fa(ia of March 2d, we gare a brief
ammnl of tba paaaagef tbe barque Pmclti. Capt. Inuw, from
this port toCalkao.Meaaaealiebad tviUier myala nor atalling-
aaika. Though only 84w Ion rvgiater, aud of a full, freighting
aandel. abe carried nearly, if Dot quiet. 2.0UO ton of cargo, earn
Bnaod of kee and lumber, aud mate the paaaage in 118 day, 25
of whicia aba wa detained off Cape Horn by tmnendoua wes-
tertr rna. Her drar. of arater waa between SO and SI fert and
exposed to the arorat weather abe only bad ne of her batch-
bunara waabeal osT deck. Tbe paaeage waa conakierol bia-My
aaliafactury, and abowed that a rcaarl conkl sail rcry well with
out " By tog kOe. A few week since the arrired at Italtunore
fman tli Ckincbn Isbutda in Hi days, and baa turned out a caryo
of tona of guano which abe brought, drawing 21) feet
water. Butb these paaaagra bare demouatraled tliat tolding-
sail and rorals may be dlanemed with adrantageomly to
concerned. The Prt tclrt haa Cunniugham'a rig applied to her
topaails and topirallant aaila ; and, as already stated, she has
not ajy royara nor atodduigaatla ; but ber yanl are atuarer
than I her wnold bare been had she been nr -d In the usual
tyle. 8U3 aalte apf-careil to u rery low without royals, as if
she were tafy-rigged. Her owner, Tboa. Howe, kUq., bowerer,
knew what in waa abuut when be afcpled the new rig. He
gara bra the extra surface of eanra in the couraes, reaaoning
that nearer Aha bull the greater tbe propelling power of tbe
Bail t and also that b!ty nasta in right weal ber often impeded a
ahtv'a areeit. br makiua her roll if aotng free ; and. in beary
w iliar. by pressing ber down if aiw waa .y TaUciais
tbe aaanmeU advaotages of many aaila and placing them againat
the expense, tear and wear in bad weather, be concluded, and
the result of this royage shows wisely, to discontinue light sail
altogether. In tba lint coat tbe aaring ia great, a may easily
be seen by referring to the sparmaker'a bill for royal masts.
MniMiagaaJJ kaoi, royal yards, and ataddingsaJl yard t to tbe I
saibaakera account lur saula, and to tliat of tbe ropemaker' for
cordage. Tbe rig, aa our nautical reader are aware, consist of
roUuig topaails and topgallant yards, and that tbe sails attached
to Inetn are reduced or reefed by lowering tbe yanla, which in
their descent, rerolre ami roll the sail around them, thus dis
pensing entirely with Kef-tackles, reef-earing, and ret' f-points
nod a bo re all, not requiring any person to go aloft to reef. By
this rig tbe watch on deck can reduce a vessel from all sail to
CKaae-reefed topsails, more easily than all bands can take a sin
gle reef ia any of the topaails now in general use. It will be
seen by ibia airsmfasntnit that asbip ia mora seaworthy because
ber tail are always within control of ber crew.
It ia well-know a to seamen that many vessels hare been
thrown down ly squalls, because their crews were unable to
baulle tbe canvas in season ; and that other have been unahle
to work off at b shore for the same reason. In anaettled
weather, with roiling topsails, sail can be carried to the last
minute, can be reduced in a lew seconds, and be react with tbe
naual dispatch t whereas, with tbe old rig, it U not considered
safe to shake out reef every time a squall blows over. Tbe
reefs once in are kept so until tbe weather becomes settled : first,
becsaa. it Is dilncult to take them in and, second, because, it
would esbanat the crew. We bare known a ship of 1,100 tons
to bav nade the passage fman Mew Orleans to this port in the
dead of Winter, with only 11 oar befiara the mast, simply be
cause she had rolling top aaila Wa repeat these fact (we hare
often ataad thna beaare) toabow our shipowners tba ad vantages
of baring their res at-la properly rigged.
If wa were amlerwruora, wo would take a risk upon a ship
wttu rolling toiisa:! Pr a much lea per centage than we would

klaaea ait llaaeJalw.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12.
Retrenchment Las been tbe watchword of this
journal, ever 6i'nce economy in the expenses of
the nation beanie a necessity. We have advo
cated it not for the simple sake of Bomethitig
to talk about, but because the necessity of the
measure is apparent to all who are interested
in the luture weirare of our kingdom. In the
palmier daya of our finances, when the policy
of our etateemen was something more than the
let-us-cat-and-drink" policy which of late
years has controled the ministerial bureaux of
our country when the far-sighted vision of
those to whom was confided the direction of
national alliirs, sought the future good of tlie
country the treasury was kept free from debt,
and tbe public credit and every branch of the
government service breathed a healthy air. But
matters have changed greatly in ten years, and
retrenchment alone can bring us back to the
financial prosperity of those days, and enable us
to free ourselves from an increasing burden of
public debt, which will soon reach $200,000,
if that sum has not already been attained.
In urging economy, wo have done what the
public good demands, fur no personal benefit can
be derived by us from it, except what we in com
mon witti our fellow-citizens gain by a more
stable, prudent and well-regulated government.
e have urged it in the War Department and
in the Judiciary, in the police, in the revenue,
and in every branch of the public service. But
we have nowhere called for un abolition of any
service of the goctrnmtnt, as charged on us by
the Folyntstan. in its last issue, excepting only
the abolishment of the Government Press, which
last we shall continue to call fur until some
policy is adopted of more advantage to the pub
lic service than that of private contracts with
favorites, under the pretext of a lease for tlie
public benefit. Says the Polynesian :
w Did the Advertiser speak tbe public sentiment in Auciist
last, when it denounced tbe police as a Useless, extravagant ex
pense, dicing at the corners ?" Dues it speak the public sen
timent now, when it asserts that the Minister red need the police
from personal nuives and not as a part of a genrrul plun of
retrenchment ? If the Advertiser was ri::ht iu August, how
CuulJ tbe Ministers be wroog in October ? If it is riht in De
cember, why urve tbe kliuistcr to a step in August which it
now condemn !"
We have nowhere advocated on abolition of
the police force, in Honolulu or anywhere else.
Our language is clear and unmistakable, that a
reduction be made of one-half. Here is our language:
44 Coder the efficient arrangement of th present able chief of
police, an appropriation of half the amount would gire as much
security aud peace to a town inhabited ly orderly foreigners
and the most peaceful native population in the workl."
Now what did the Ministry do? Instead of
reducing one-half, as they should have done,
they have virtually abolishtd the police force
in Honolulu. The force formerly consisted of
from twenty-eiht to thirty-four men, not includ
ing officers. The paid force now consists of only
four natives and three foreigners, besides officers.
And these seven men are all that arc allowed
to guard a city of 10,000 inhabitants day and
night. And after 12 o'clock on each night, if
we are rightly informed, the city is left to the
protection of but two or three policemen, one of
whom has to remain posted at the station-house,
while any shrewd burglar can elude the Eteps of
the remaining two, and enter any house or set it
on fire, without fear of detection !
It is in the manner in which the Ministers have
gone to work to " retrench," that we find cause
of complaint. We called for a reduction of the
expenses of the department, and they bavo vir
tually aMlithod itf! atiEi'ii'ncy altogether. The
j iueuiiiet.-iicy is on the jtrt of the Ministry,
' and their cuiir-' in this important matter, wtiieh
involves me pr- lection oi tne live ana property
of 10,000 . le, aSTjrJd another evidence of
th' ir unuio ...r the rc-ponsible duties confided
to them. Th i .public asked for rttreiuhment
in the lice department, and they call fur
it still. But there is a great difference between

Ministry, and they hare retrenched with a ven
The public the property-holders in every
city or nation have certain rights, among
which is that of the protection of their property.
To that end a police is sustained, and is consider
ed a necessary apf-endag- of the city or 5tate
government. The size and strength of the j
Iice is tieja-ndent on the wants of the community
and its ability. If any body Fays that it is un
necessary and sliould not be maintained, would
the government be justified in dismissing its jo
licemen all together, and leaving unperformed
its jiart of the contract, pimply because somebody
says so? Not at all. Yet this is virtually what
the Ministry have done. They have crippled this
branch of the public service, and rendered it use
less, not only in Honolulu, but elsewhere, not
because it has been necessary to do so, but solely
from miiudment. Economy uiiirlit have been
gained without rendering the service useless. A
reduction of one-half the force was called for,
not the abrogation of the whole nor even three
fourths. The last appropriation bill voted the
sum of 22,000 to be paid to the five heads of
the police on four islands. While it is admitted
that they should be well paid for the day and
night service required of them, the service can
and ought to Ie done for half or two-thirds of
the sum named.
Tlie " retrenchments" thus far made by the
Ministry appear to be little else than a farce.
Under the plea of retrenching, they have dismiss
ed three-fourths of the city police, and now leave
the city for half the night almost without a
watch. Under the saine plea, they have entered
into a private contract for printing at what we
have every reason to believe will cost the public
in the end more than ever. These things have
not been done for the public benefit, but to check
the clamor which is increasing against the pres
ent Ministry. If this ia a sample of the "gen
eral plan of retrenchment" settled on by the
Ministry, the less we have of it the better.
Tlie public have their rights, so has the gov
ernment its rights. But each must be res
isted, and a Ministry that long despises the
public voice, will learn that there is a limit be
yond which it cannot safely go.
The recent tampering with the police depart
ment, which we have instanced, must le imme
diately remedied in some way. The bold bur
glaries and attempts at arson which we have
lately chronicled, should lie all-sufficient argu
ments to lead to such a result. If not remedied
soon, the public havo the right to demand and
insist on a change of policy, and if need be, a
change of Ministry. Rotation, if it brings into
office, Ministers whose judgment and vision are a
little more clear-sighted, will only add to the
strength and permanency of the government,
which under the present administration has been
allowed to descend to about as low a level as it is
safe to jro.
When our cotemporary again undertakes to
point out any inconsistencies in the conduct of
this journal, let him first examine whether the
44 inconsistency" ia not wholly on the part of the
Ministry which he lamely attempts to defend.
Wo call for reform now as firmly as we ever
called for it, but at the tame time we Bay that
we, do not believe that the present Ministry,
judging from the past, have the moral courage
or the firmness to carry out the needed reforms,
even if His Majebty or the public press clearly
indicate to them what those reforms should be.
The Ministry, liko their chosen organ and de
fender, are behind the times, and must give way
to the popular wiil, before any permanent re
form or any substantial retrenchment can be
effected. The time has come when tho public
voice should be heard in tones of thunder at tlie
government offices. The earthquake which a
week ago shook the walls of Honolulu Hale so
smartly as to send its inmates into the open air,
shouting, 44 What in the devil's to pay ?" is but
the prelude of another shock, which can only
be averted by prompt and judicious retrench
ment, where retrenchment should properly be
made. It is not the foreign population simply,
but the whole native population, who desire
that a system of economy be promptly and
efficiently instituted. The government can be
administered as efficiently now with its legiti
mate income as it was ten years ago, when it
was out of debt and had money to spare. And
in the name of the people, we call for such im
mediate reforms and retrenchments as will stop
the increase in tho public debt, and will provide
for its extinguishment.
Wo have been permitted to peruse several pri
vate letters received by late mails from France,
and have been so much interested in them, that
wo have requested the favor of making a few
extracts. The writer speaks of what he saw, with
a freedom that we do not often find in print, and
his observations will bo read with interest. The
first letter is dated :
Ltos, July 25. 18C1.
Xhis is the second city of France, with a
population cf nearly half a million, anj growing fast.
The city is situated at the confluence of two rivers the
Rhine and S.ioue. High hills toner all around the
city. From the summit of these bills, the mountains
of Switzerland cm be seen. La9t evening, I walked
upon the htzhest bill, and could see tbe whole city
spreading far and wide, mid the slopes of mountains
. . . ... , , ... . i . , ,
tr high lui:s cultivated vsiin tne vine ana i could
also see very distinctly Mount Blanc white with snow.
Lyons is a great, thriving city ; its slopes arecplcudid,
and its streets wide. It has several squares, some
fountains and statuet among them, Louis the Great
and Napoleon tbe Great. Last evening I walked in
tbe great square of Louis the Great, and here were
many interesting things to see, vix : a crowd or peo
ple bent on pleasure, officers dressed in full aud
bright uniforms, handsome women, tbe poor and
rich, walking or sitting under the trees, the band
playing, the fountains throwing their jets thirty feet
high, and swans and ducks swimming about under
neath. There are many bridges of stoue and iron ;
I countid twenty-one. Tbere are some fine public
builJiocs which I have visited ; my quality of for
eigner admits me to places where it is denied to a
citizen. For instance, yesterday I inquired of a
policeman standing sentry at the entrance cf the new
Ik-urse and lhaniber of Commerce, ir 1 couu enter,
lie shock his head at first, but upon learning I was a
foreigner, be not only allowed me to enter, but
politely showed me tbe way to go over this magnificent
structure. So it is generally I have found the
French people extremely polite and kind, especially
at Marseilles. I will except two or three eases of
hotel or restaurant keepers only, l'eople are very
well informed concerning the present condition cf
affairs in the United States ; the merchants espe
cially converse with great understanding on this
subject I think, generally, they are fur the Govern
ment and Imon.
Paris, Aug. 15, 1S61.
44 1 have hardly had agreeable quarterssince
left home, although I have put myself to a good deal
cf trouble to get quiet places at least to sleep in. iut
at Mirti'illes and Lyons the backmen kept up their
noise all night under my windows, and the carriages
rolled by on the stone pavement. At Ailes, the dugs
barked all night, the servants kept up a loud talk,
and the fleas bit me so that the marks are on me yet.
At Lyons, although I happened to get into a fine
hotel, I found a moose unJer my pillow rnd in my
bed. At Dejon, my room was dark and rather damp,
so that I caught cold. When I arrived hr-re, I pro-
:ured a boarding-place as soon as possible, t el
elected a place which I thought very quiet, but I
un I a stable directly un.lor my window, an 1 nail a
deien horses c:ue hobbling in ever the hard stones
at midnight, aud the back men are driving about at
sooruae in tbe morning. The French are the noisiest
people I ever saw ; tbey seem to require no rest up
l:e aud early. They work ail the time. Sund.tys not
excepted ; they except only their Fete days, and to
day is tbe gret nitioiial fete cf the Emperor a sort
of 4th cf July. They have been making greit pre
parations for it. To'-night the city wiil bUie with
Since my aniTaT. there have been two great occa
sions the review cf tbe Imperial Gurd and Garrison
of Paris on the Champ dc M trs, in honor of the King
of Sweden and Norway, and tbe inauguration by tbe
Emperor of anew bculevari or avenue, which took
place on Tuesday. The review was a fine military
display. There were 40.000 of the best soldiers of
France, consisting of infantry, cavalry ai.d artillery.
It took place cn tbe Champ de Mars or Field of Mars,
which is a vast level plain without the w.-iKs cf tbe
city, and devoted to military paiaJes. The Emperor,
with bis guests, the Kicg of Sweden asJ bis brother,
rode ou horseback, surrounded by several M irsbals
and about fifty of the body-guard cf the Emperor on
horseback. As they rede along they were cheered
lustily. Tbe pageant aas a splendid atfair. The
troops were two hours in defiling ly the Emperor.
' Yesterday, the new boulevard w s decorated with
fl igs of every color, wreaths were stretched along cm
each side of the street for half a mile, forming a com
plete wall ef oak leaves ; two files cf soldiers and
hundreds cf policeuieu lined the sides cf the street,
keeping the crowd on tlie side-walks. The Emperor
rode iu a carriage with two or three cf his marshals ;
his carriage was preceded by a few cavalry. Follow
ing him was another carriage, drawu by four bay
horses not less spleudid than tbe Emperor's ; in this
whs Priuce M-irat an 1 officers of high rack. Then
came the splendid body guard of the Emperor, which
was followed by his lackeys or servants on horseback.
Tbe music struck up, tbe soldiers presented arms,
and the Emperor pas-ei along touching his hat with
great diguity in response to the cries of " rtre I'Em
fiereur" live the Emperor. Tbe Emperor proceeded
to a gay and beautiful pavilion, where be delivered a
short inaugural address, and then returned tbe same
way he came. The Emperor is very popular at
present, but I doubt if tbe people love him as much
as they fear him. He has an army cf half a million
at bis command, and he has been extremely popular
with them since he took command in person in Italy.
He is constantly getting up tew things and projecting
improvements, especially in Paris. This new boule
vard originated in his mind. The portraits you see
of Napoleon are very good and faithful.
44 1 have made tbe most of my time while here.
Every day I go lo some place I have not visited ; I
go frequently lo the Louvre, which is near by me.
and which has the finest gallery cf paintings iu
Europe ; I go in freely at any time upon showing my
passport. A person could spend a mouth here to
profit ; studying, paintings, sculpture, antiquities of
Egypt, Assyria. Greece and llome, aud America.
You can form some idea of the extent and magnifi
cence of this palace when I tell ycu that one hall is
a quarter of a mile long, aud that both sides are
covered with paintings of the greatest masters. I
nave been interested in visiting in the Louvre the
hall of tbe sovereigns, which consists of several large
and highly-gilded apartmeuts. Here are preserved
tbe Souvenirs of the kings and emperors from the
time cf Cliarlemagne his sword is here ; coats of
armor of Henry IV and Francis 1 ; lairrors and slip
pers cf Marie Anotinette ; journals tf Henry 11 and
Louis XIII ; aud thousands of precious aud costly
objects (T historical luteresL But in nothing was I
more interested thaa iu tbe souvenirs cf Napoleon
the Great nud his family ; a whole room is devoted
to him. Here are the secretary he wrote uHn, the
desk and chair he used on tbe battle-field, his saddle
and spurs and hunting arms, three old hats which he
used during his voyage and at St. Helena, and which
luck as you always ee in his hkeuesses ; the old grey
overcoat, filled with bullet-holes, which he wore at the
battle of Marengo ; the bed he slept on on the field ;
his court dress, eiy rich : locks of his hair and cf
Josephine's, aud many souvenirs of his ton, the King
44 1 have visited also the celebrated Nctre Dame,
where Napoleon and Josephine were crowned by the
Pope, and here were showu me their coronation robes
and the dresses of many rulers of France. 1 have
lieen twice to the Palace or Luxemburg, in wincn
there is a fine collection of modern paintings, and the
grounds are rich iu sculpture, in flower-gardens and
in noble trees. I spent a day at the Jardin des
Plan tea garden of plants where are gathered ani
mals from all parts of the globe, and not only animals
but every species cf known plants and trees and
shrubs, to say nothing of very extensive galleries of
bottany, of which there are more than 50.OOU species
of herbs and of the collections of vegetable fossils, aud
gallery of zoology, mineralogy and geology. This
place is open freely to all, and every foreigner is ad
mitted to the galleries of paintings, the libraries and
museums simply upou presenting his passport, and
yet all these are maintained at a great expense by
44 Although I find the palaces, the walks, the gar
dens, the museum -, &c, of Paris all I expected to
find them, 1 am somewhat disappointed in the people
They have the reputation of being very polite, but
they fall far below New York, Philadelphia or Mar
seilles at any rate in the street. They have very
little manners iu public ; they push you off of the
side walks, jolt you if you are standing at a window,
and get right before your eyes if you are looking at
any object of interest. Yesterday I saw a gentleman
pushiug a tolerably dressed lady back from entering
an omnibus before him, and there was a blight war
of words and a tu.-sle for victory, which the man
gained. Again, I frequently see a gentleman acci
dentally btep on a lady's dress ; 1 saw one toru yes
terday so, but the man said not so much as pardon
that word they are always using at table when there
is no necessity for it. At the review the other day,
the whole crowd broke forth into a laugh when the
Swedish soldiers passed, because their style of dress
was d liferent from the French ; tho Swedes looked
round surprised. I must see more of Paris before I
shall acknowledge that they go before my own
countrymen for politeness or even are worthy to
unloose their shoes ao far as general politeness of the
heart is concerned." ! H. I.
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Ocean CunaENTs. A. W. Caldwell, Esq., U. S.
Consul at this port, handed us a letter from Dr. It.
W. Wood, of Kauai, which contains the following
interesting memorandum :
"Ship H'kilr Sicallam, Cat. Kllery, Ixmnl from Sn Fran

Making a drift nearly due west of 4 GO miles ia
about S3 days. By referring to our memoranda.
we find that the If. S. arrived on the 23d July, and
the bottle was thrown overboard two days before her
arrival. If the memorandum is correct, and the bot
tle actually drifted 400 miles in 33 days, it shows the
existence cf a very powerful current about the islauds
about 14 miles per diem.
Another Citizen Gone. Death is still busily at
work among ns, taking away some of our most
active residents. Mr. John F. Colburn died sud
denly on Sunday morning last. For many years
Mr. C has been an Auctioneer in this city, and
occupied a prominent position in the community.
He was for years an active member of the Fire De
partment, and at the time of his death, held the
office of Fire Warden. The entire department turn
ed out at his funenl. The Hock and Ladder car
riage, decorated with appropriate mourning em
blems, was used for a hearse, and was drawn by tbe
Hock and Ladder Company. The four fire companies.
all in uniform, preceded the corpse, and the proces
sion formed one of the most imposing displays that
have been witnessed here for years. While the
procession was moving from the dwelling to the
graveyard, the bell of Company No. 1 was tolled.
Mr. Colburn was from JSew 1 ork city, where bis
parents and sisters are now living. He leaves a
widow aud three smill children. .
General Miller, in a letter from Lima of the
4ta August, directs that $100 lie subscribed, in his
name, towards the erection of a Monument to Cap

SrVtRK EAKTUyrekE- A heavy earthquake oc
curred on Thursday last, at 11 minutes before 12 M.
Two distinct shocks were felt, and so severe were
they, that every body experienced them, whether
walking, standing or silling. In several instances
it threw persons quite from their balance ; and
more probably experienced sensaticus of astonish
ment or fright. Nearly every hoe was shaken, in
some cases so strongly as to cause tbe inmates to
leave the building. At Punahju College, the plaster
of the ceiling was shaken down, and the pupi'.s rau
out of doors. The same scene, so far as the stam
pede was concerned, occurred at the courthouse,
where a 6uit was in progress in Chambers. The
quake was accompanied by a uoise resembling that
of a dray driven over the roof, or the rolling of
casks over head. Tbe shock was f.'lt at Lahaiua,
and was so severe, that ink was spilled cut cf an
iuksland cn a table. We cannot learu that it was
noticed at Hilo or any where on Hawaii.
It is very seldom that earthquakes have beeu
felt on this island, though they are of frequent oc
currence oa Hawaii. The cause is probably that
O.ihu is more remote from ihe seat of activity cf
the volcanic fires beneath us. Twice, however,
during the last twenty years, this island has been
visited by tidal waves, which are probably at
tributable to volcanic eruptions once about the
year 1842 at Honolulu, and again about tbe year
1 Sol at Waialua.
'SkEKTERS. These little pests of society mos
quitoes, we mean have been very thick for the
past few d-iys, or since the late heavy rain. Gener
ally the gentlemen don't mind their acquaintance
and occasional visits, but the ladies, of whom they are
especially fond, complain that they are 14 the plague
cf their lives." By our San Francisco papers we
see that mosquitoes are very thick aud annoying iu
that city : so we have one consolation ; viz : that
Honolulu is not the only place where these little tor
mentors flourish. 44 .Misery loves compauy.
44 Right About Pack." As some cf the soldiers
were marching to relieve guard on Tuesday eveuing, a
wag Etanding on the corner of the street ave the
above order. The company wheeled around, took
the gentleman in charge, and marcheel him off to the
station-house, where he was confined for the remain
der of the night. Our brave soldiers, we judge from
this, are not to be trifled with by street-walkers. ,
Patriotic. Yesterday Captain Coffin raised a
flagstaff on his new premises in King street, from
which, at 12 o'clock, the American flag was unfurled
in honor of Prince Lot, whose birthday it was. The
stall is a beauty, measuring G9 feet in length, and
will serve as a conspicuous guide to those iu search
of the Captain, who as usual is always ou hand steam
er days as well as other occasions.
The steamer left on Tuesday, bound to Konn,
with one of the largest crowds of passengers she has
ever taken off. Her decks were a solid mass of
human beings, aud when they crowded on either
side, the boat evidently felt the weight. Among the
passengers, we noticed Capt. Crown, of the Russian
War Steamer Morge, His Houor Judge Robertson,
COFFEE ANDTWADDLK SOCIETV. The
M crullers of thi newly orfranizeil Society are requested to meet
ou SATURDAY EVKN'INtl, lee. 14, at the residence of the

Cavalky Company. We are gUJ to loam that the
prospects of the new Cuva'ry company arc very flat
tering. Between thirty an I forty members are
already enrolled. The government can make no
better Jipost! of a portion of the fuii.ls appropriated
to the War IVpaitment than in fittiug out and
tnaint iining a strong and serviceable catalry corps.
Our volunteer companies have been too much neglect
ed. EughiuJ has at lat waled up to the fact that
her volunteer troop. constitute a most valuable
arm of the service, as they have long proved to l-e
in tho United States. Lot us have good volunteer
companies, rifles an J cavalry, sustaiued in part at
least by the government. Better to thus appropriate
the war funds, if we must have military organ
izations. The clipper ship Lotus brought no United
States mail or express, and only one or two papers.
The ship Lucrrtia was to sail a few dtys after her,
aud would touch here Jo leave the mails and pas
sengers. She was to have sailed on the 23d, and
will probably bring the San Francisco weeklies cf
the 10th and 22 Nov. The 7-ou was IS days on

Uathkb Lively. There is at least one busy place

by natives wishiDg to 44 see themselves as others see

to his advertising iu the Jluo.oj, or to cheap prices;
but coucluJe that advertising tells the story, for the
natives believe everything they read in the papers.
