THURSDAY, JANUARY 1(5.
The news from t'ie East, Lrouglit by tlie
SpeiJiw ir s mail, is exeet-dingly meager, and real
ly aiuount.4 to nothing, if we except the I'resi
dcnt'B Mis.ig, which is contained in full in the
San Francisco wwklies of the 7th. The tele
graph, although it conveyed the message through
to .San Francisco, apjioars to give jioor satisfac
tion to the California juhlic, and so far a gene
ral news is Concerned, is immensely behind the
Pony Esr-ress. Now, we find bits of telegraphic
news reported uml.-r darning heiidings. the latter
generally exceeding in Fjiiice the former. So
short and so curtailed in the newa sent by tele
graph, that it id next to impossible to make head
or tail of it, even when the explanatory notes
and coniiiieiitd of the editors are inserted. Again,
many of the telegrams now published are un
founded, and are frequently contradicted in fol
lowing dispatches. Time may correct these irre-gnLo-ities,
but for the present we can only pub
lish theu, with the remark that our readers may
believe just so much of the telegraph reiiorts as
they choose. The pony brought reliable and
very interesting advices, indeed, it was all that
the public cared for news published in San
Francisco ten days from Washington and two
weeks ahead of the mails. The San FrnncUco
papers do not possess half the value or interest
which they did under the pony system.
The President's Message is a plainly written,
clear state document, and throughout assumes
that the strength of the rebellion is virtually
broken and the Union guaranteed. This 13 the
only position which the Chief Magistrate could
take, for the power and existence of the Confed
erate Government only in name, not in
reality. What the President says regarding
emancipation, will arrest the attention of all who
desire the freedom of the claves. Lasting and
firm peace can only be gained by some adjust
ment of the slavery question, which lias for its
ultimate i.-sue the emancipation of the slaves.
Narrowed to its only true isvue, the qu.stion in
volved in the present struggle is the supremacy
of Slavery or the destruction of the Union one
or the other will triumph. Some plan of eman
cipation with adequate compensation would be a
blessing both to the South and the North
emancipation without it will be a curse to
From Europe wo have no news, the mails hav
ing failed to connect, and the telegraph reports
furnishing little or nothing besides the rates of
consols and exchange, which are of but little im
The irregularity of the mails has now become
extremely vexatious and ulmost unsupportable.
There is a rumor that the Panama Fteamcrs are
to be employed again for carrying the mails aft-r
January 1st, and also that they are to run week
ly, instead of tri-monthly. These changes may
take place, and it will certainly be a public
blessing if they do. When the Spied well left San
Francisco, several hundred mail bags from the
East had arrived at Placerville, but could not be
forwarded on to San Francisco, owing to the
floods in the interior, which bad broken up all
communication between the cities.
destination of the grrat Naval Lxpt-Jition which Las
just pailetl from Formes Mor.rte. A ftw Lours more
of tu?(ifii5e will fcolve lie mjetcrv, and bring us
tidings t-f success or defeat. So well has the secret
Ucn kept, that I find even to-Jay knots cf citizens at
Willard's fpcou'atirg upon its oljcts, and each with
a different theory as to its destination. And yet it is
possible that the Tebel goveinnient is in full posses
sion of ihe recret fre this. Their spies abound every
where, and nctwiiL&tanJicg the researches of the
Cotigreseioiial Committee, and the numbers dis
charged in consequence thereof, I doubt not there
are even now iu every department of the government
employees luse secret sjr.ipatbies are with the
j Secessionists, or whose wives are ready to communi
cate any stray Lit of information they may gather
that will help the rtll caue. I find everywhere in
Wn.hington, among the ladies, instances of secession
proclivities, and though the manifestation of then is
more restrained since the arrest, by government, of
certain fashionable ladies here who were acting as
rebel spies, still it is easy to fee that the feeling exists
as ao active principle.
The great question as to what principle shall be
adopted concerning the slaves who come into camp
and deliver themselves up, is fast approaching its
solution. If the Naval Expedition effect a landing
on the Southern coast, and cpen a cotton port, as it
is supposed by many it is their intention to do, the
issue will speedily be made, and the war will in my
opinion become one of freedom against slavery. The
persistent efforts made by the leaders of the rebels
to identify the Unionist troops with the Abolitionists,
for the sake cf rousing the prejudices of the South,
although it was notorious that some of our foremost
men in arms were leaders of the Breckinridge or pro
slavery party, is likely to recoil with terrible effect
iu their own heads. The President has heretofore
lent a deaf ear to those who were clamoring for the
immediate emancipation of the slaves of those en
gaged in the rebellion, deciding to take no important
step of this sort in contravention of the Constitution,
except as military necessity of sufficient urgency
to justify so radical a measure. In this view lie was
confirmed by the voice of the border Slave States,
which continued (though nominally perhaps more
than really) loyal, nnd which would have been driv
en at once into secession by such a policy. Now,
however, the emergency seems to have arrived for
this step, and the reasons adverse to i's adoption to
have, in a great measure, disappeared.
Though the slave states of Delaware, Kentucky and
Missouri, are nominally saved to the Union, it is not
with the censeut of the slave-holding portion of them.
With few exceptions, and those mostly of oil men
unfit fur service, the slaveholders of the Border States
are open or secret Secessionists, nnd a lare propor
tion of them have joined the rebel army, and are in
arms, with the avowed object of driving cut the
Unionists, and turning their States over to the South
ern Confederacy. Those who remain firm for the
Union feel that it is worth more than all the niggers
in the South' as one of them expressed it, nnd that
if the question is, whether the Union or Slavery shall
cease to ex'ut, are ready for the sacrifice of the latter.
So that the status of those States is not now likely to
be affected by the issue, and therefore the objection
against interfeiing with the peculiar institution on
the score bt jxtliry is much weakened, if indeed it any
longer exists. Setting aside considerations of justice
and humanity, there can be no question that in the
present position of affairs, a stern military necessity
dictates the striking a blow at the rebels in what is
retreat of the rebels jast as his forces Lad commenced
their movement. I s'.so visited IlalTs, Upton's Hill,
Ball's Cross Roads, Fall's Church , and other points of
interest. The whole region is desolation and ruin,
magnificent forests cut down, Louses Lurned, or
pulled down, or stripped of all but frames and plas
ter, beautiful gardens and parks destroyed, and
grim visaged war dUplaying Lis wrinkled and horrid
front, wherever the eye turned. This region Las
been occupied by rebels and federals tjr turns, and
each party have wreaked their vengeance cn the
partisans of the other, till there is now hardly a house
standing. I did not see a child or a female from the
tinie I left Washington till I returned to it, but every
where the bronzed visages of stern warriors. I got
cut of my way early in the P. M. and having ridden
a mile or two without being stopped, or seeing pickets,
I thought it was time to consult my map, rhich had
been corrected up to the present time, (at least I was
assured so where I procured it.) I was startled at dis
covering by it that I was within the line cf "rebel
pickeis," and that a rebel fort was just behind me,
and rebel cavalry camp jast before me. I began to
think that the Commercial A.lccrtier was about to

Mi Dear Commercial: Three mouths since, I
sent you a waif from Ibis great f'.cus of excitement,
written juet after the disastrous paiiic and route of
our army at Bull Run. Vet here I find the two great
armies occupying about the tame relative position as
before that engagement. TLe L'uicuiets guarding ihe
Capital at every oitt, and preying, though more
slowly and cautiou&Iy thau before, upon the as slowly
retreating rebels, with a prospect cf a general engage
ment at nor moment. 1 he desperate tight ntar Lets
burg, a few dajs since, in which the advance guard
of Gen. Sttne's division was attacked and repulsed,
after s meet brave resistance, by a force of four times
their number, was a needless sacrifice. The attempt
to push a force across a river on a hostile chore, with
out providing sufficient transportation, either for
reinforcements or a means of retreat, was a grots
blunder, and to our brave troops a fatal one.
I witnesaed, a few days ago, the funeral pageant
of the lamented CoL Baker, the distinguished Senator
from Oregon, who fell in that bloody fight while
cheering on his men. His body was pierced with Un
balls, almost any one of which would have proved
fatal. The funeral cortege was solemn and imposing ;
it was composed of three regiments of infantry, with
arms reversed, and bands plaving a solemn dirge,
and long precession of carriages containing persons
of distinction, among whom were the President, (who
was an intimate personal friend cf Baker, who bad
resided in Illinois.) and his Cabinet, Gen. Scott and
staff, and others. That was the las' publio appear
ance of Gen. Scott as Commander-in-Chief of the
army. Yesterday, being infirm and worn out by the
arduous duties of a long life spent in the service of
his country, he availed himself of the special act of
Congress passed at the lost session, which permits
him to retire with full honors and pay during his life,
ar.d resigned his command as the head of our im
mense army to the more vigorous, but le?s expe
rienced. Gen. George B. McClellan. The proceedings
on this deeply interesting occasion, and the docu
ments accompanying them, show the perfect confi
dence and esteem in which this noble chieftain is held,
and must have been extremely gratifying to the
scarred and worn veteran. He leaves to-day fur
Europe, and will be accompanied to New York by the

' Their strongest, because as they themselves boast,
' their slaves, undisturled by the war, which their
astute leaders have thus far kept from their homes by
interposing victimized Virginia as a shield between
, themselves and the loyal States, have raised their
food and their cotton, while their masters have been
thus free to fight for their unhallowed cause, and
those not needed for this purpo:-e have been em.
ployed on fortifications, and in various ways, have
aided the rebellion. Their ireukest, b -cause they are
human chattels, prefer freedom lo slavery, ami when
the opportunity to secure their freedom piescntB itself
lo their minds, they will gladly embrace it. Such
an opportunity will be offered, if the Naval Expedi
tion is successful in making a landing on the coast of
one of the Cotton States, as the Commander of those
forces is instructed to act w;th reference to the slaves
upon the priuciplcs adopted by General Butler at
Fortress Monroe, and accepted by the Government.
To day I took a long and very interesting horse
back ride of twenty miles into Virginia, among
the camps of our vast army, and nlmost up to the
rebel pickets. It is very difficult now to get a pass
to go into Virginia, the Provost Xarshal being very
strict and refusing most replications. Your bumble
corrcspoi dent however, having the honor to be secre
tary of the Military committee of the little village of
Westboro, to which village the band of Senator (now
Col.) Wilson's famous regiment, the 44 22d Mass.,"
belonged, rod being well acquainted with the vener
able chaplain of that regimeut, the distinguished
clergy man ai.d poet John Pierpont, who, soon after
the Baltimore massacre, offered his services as chap
lain, on condition that his regiment was n o go
around Baltimore, (but through it,) obtained a note
from Col. Wilson to the Provost Marshal, requesting
a paas for me to visit bis regiment on business.
Armed with this document, I proceeded to the fliee
of that poteutate, and found a slow procession in sin
gle file reaching frem his door some twenty feet along
the sidewalk, guardid by a file ol soldiets to keep
order and Me fair phiy ami that no one should
44 crowd the mourners." At the caudal extremity of
this lugubrious procession, your vaiftr took bis posi
tion and there like other wafers stuck. The file be
fore me was what Artemus Ward would call decided
ly mixed, but mainly consisted of most seedy and
oafcrish looking settlers, and daikies. Some were
farmers who had come in on business and who wish
ed to renew their expired passes; Feme were sutlers
to regiments, and some doubtless were engaged in
more ol jectionable trade with the troops. As an in
dividual emerged every few minutes from the office,
bis success or failure to procure the coveted permit
was easily read from his countenance. After waiting
some fifteen minutes, during which time I bad ad
vanced aboat one foot, I made a calculation that I
should reach the dread presence in not less than
three hours. Not having so much time to spare, I
44 broke ranks" to the evident gratification of the
men behind me, and concluded to await a more
favorable opportunity. The next day 1 went again
at three different times and finally took my place

By the way, the efficient Postmaster and Mayor of
San Francisco in those halcyon days, afterwards one
of the flying Governors of Kansas in bcr troublous
times, is now Col. Geary, an efficient and brave Com.
mander, who has already won laurels in the recent
skirmish at Harpers Ferry. After a delay of an
hour and a half, I reached the arbiter oi my fate,
and laying great stress on my being a committee
man, having in charge the families of soldiers, and
none at all on my curiosity and social intents, I re
ceived a puss for four days to visit camps across the
river on official business, coupled with most solemn
declarations of my loyalty, which I was made to
Armed with this all-important document, I cross
ed the long bridge, passed through Fort Runyon,
and a long line of encampments on the road to Manas
sas1, being stopped every few reds by a soldier with
an t-rder to 44 show pass," from the time I entered
Long Bridge, till I returned. I visited the varioug
localities which are now rendered famous, though
never beard of before; Munson's Hill, which a few
weeks ago was occupied and fortified ly the rebels,
much to the dismay of the more timid Wnshington
ians who felt that if they could be allowed to do that
with impunity and plant their rebel 9 ig in full sight
and withiu canncn shot of the White House, their
McClellan however, knew what he was about, and
while he allowed the rebels to occupy and fortify the
hill, had made bis preparations to cut oil and capture
the force of about ten thousand that occupied it.
Through treachery however, his signals were dis
ovcrcd and bin well-laid plan foiled, by the sudden
able leelings. There were no camps io sight, but
quite near me was a party of soldiers. The question t ,. r, , - , -iv j
. - , . .... . . . display, which David had.
which to me was patticularly interesting, whether r MoloUnl
tney were lederal or secfsh, was not readily answered
ly their appearance. They were loading a cart with
the boards from a house which they were pulling
down. As this hid been the amusement of each
party no clue to the answer was furnished. As I
knew that they would fire at me without ceremony if
I tried to gallop off whether they were friends or fi.e,
I rode up to them, and found, to my relief, that they
belonged to a Jersey regiment, and that our pickets
had becu extended and the rebels had retired. As I
returned towards Washington, it was the hour of
evening parade, auj the regimental bands were dis
coursing most stirring music ns I passed in succes
sion the various camps, while cavalry, artillery and
infantry were moving through the fields and along
the roads, presenting a most imposing and brilliant
spectacle. A strange one, indeed, to an American.
I could hardly realize that I was in Republican
America, witnessing scenes, which I had befure on'y
seen in Europe, when I had thanked God that I was
a citizen of America, where standing armies were
unknown. Auwe ! auwe ! Alas fi-r the Republic !

I once in a series of years that our regular packets

and southerly gales. The Speedwell has proved her-

Letter from Son Francisco.
San Fbaxcisco, Dec. 12, 18G1.
Mr. Editor : It is something to have made the
passage with our justly popular Commodore, on his
109th trip between the two ports of San Francisco
nnd Honolulu, in the shortest time yet recorded from
Honolulu to this place.
The bark Comet squared away, and discharged
her pilot outside of Honolulu harbor at 2 P. M.,
November 23d, and passed the heads of the Golden
Gate at 12 M. of December 4tb; which, making due
allowance for difference of time, gave us 10 days 19
hours and 40 minutes. We will rest satisfied with
that, till it has been out-done.
A Teleiittiphir Font.
It is something also worth reporting that the day
after our arrival, the President's Message to Con
gress was in our hands, ouly 43 hours aft?r its de
livery. It consists of about 8,000 wor ls, and is by far
the longest document yet transmitted from the East.
It is considered a grand test of telegraphic efficiency.
Nothing like it bos ever before been accomplished on
our earth. But for an accident in the Sierras, it
would have been published here in less than 24 hours
afterdate. The cost of transmission was very great,
but the enterprising 44 Associated Press" (consisting
of the San Francisco Jllta aud Bulletin, and the
Sacramento Ur.ion,) were proud to bear it. The
dreadful storm of the last few days in the interior
has temporarily interrupted the continuity of the
L'uion Propped Gniniii Ground.
The Message, with the news that about the game
time arrived of 44 the war," have brightened the
faces of this union-loving reople, and wiil doubtless
assist the despondent umong yourselves. President
Lincoln has hit it in saying regarding the insurrec
tion 44 The progress of events is plainly in the right
direction." Southern prowess wanes. She will not
again menance the capital, or nny part of the Union,
with an army of over 200,000. The .-Ilia gives a
proper expression to the facts when it says: 44 The
indications at present point strongly to the probabil
ity of the preseut rebellion in tlie Southern States
tapering off before lonjr into a tedious and desultory
guerrilla Tarfare. The rebellion took years to
grow, and years will elapse ere it, or the lawlessness to
which it will have given rise, dies out."
Grrnl I'uucral I'nilcnnl.
Yesterday, the funeral obsequies of Col. Baker
were celebrated in this city, in a style which it is
said exceeds everything of the kind yet seen on this
Pici6c coast. Mr. Edward Stanley, a distinguished,
and I am told worthy lawyer, read a well-written but
poorly delivered oration to on audience of perhaps
2,000, principally ladies, who were most gallantly al
lowed a more complete precedence over gentlemen than
I have ever before seen under similar circumstances.
Bishop Kip read the 44 burial service," after which
a procession of various military and civic companies
was formed about a mile and a half in length, which
followed the catafalque from the hall through the
principal streets of the city. A 44 selected escort and
especially invited guests" then accompanied the
corpse to the Lone Mountain Cemetery. The Rev.
Starr King at the grave performed the final funeral
cervices over one who will be long remembered for
his eloquence, bravery, and patriotism.
Grent Flood in Sacramento Valley.
All California w this week excited by the unprece
dented floods in the interior, particularly on the Sa
cramento River and its branches. Lives have been
het, though probably not so many as at first sup
posed. There has been great destruction of live stock.
Every street in Sacramento City, the capitol, has
been submerged from two to twelve feet, and it is
thought that over a million of dollars is already
destroyed in that one place. A steamer has cruised
up some of the streets of Marysville. Great priva
tions and sufferings are already experienced. With
characteristic vigor, subscription lists are already
opened in San Francisco to relieve the distressed, nnd
a public meeting was last evening held to devise
further measures. How pleasant could Hawaiian
hearts and hands also render sympathy and assist
ance ! Cannot something of the kind be done ?
Earnest effoits are at last on foot here, and par
ticularly in New York, fcr the establishment of
steamers across the Pacific from this port. I am told
by a leading public man that it will be carried into
effect within a year. By early movements might not

A New Ixvestios. Wm. Crockett, a blacksmith
in Messrs. Robinson & Co.'s ship-yard, has invented a
very useful tool, consisting of a small auger, about
half-inch size, with a toggle joint, which allows its
use for ship-carpentering aud other work in many
places where a common auger would be of no service.
The entire auger is 18 inches in length, the joint
being about the middle. Iu the repairs on the ship
Petronila this instrument has proved very servicea
ble, and we see no reason why it may not become a
valuable invention. Mr. Crocker in sids to takeout
a patent for it here, nnd we would recommeud the
same being done for the United States and England,
for it is a tool that wuiild come into general use. It
ccrtaiuly is a credit to our mechanics when such tools
cau be not only invented, but manufactured in Hono
R.ce. We are much pleased to notice the arrival
of several ox-cart loads of t' e Crst crop of Hawaiian
Rice, raised by Prince Lot and Dr. Ford, at Moan
alua. This first harvesting will beat least 10 tots,
besides which there are a hundred or two acres now
growing, not yet ready to harvest. From all parts
of these islands, we bear of preparations made for
planting rice, both by natives and foreigners, and the
prospect is that the yield will be even larger than
anticipated. From all we can learn, it i3 a very cer
tain crop, cultivated with the simplest labor and the
commonest tools, such as the natives have long been
nccustomcd to in cultivating their taro. The pros
pects for rice are certainly encouraging.
The Passage op the Comit. From the letter of
our San Francisco correspondent, we learn that the
passage of the Comet from this port was ten days, l'J
hours and 40 minutes, which is one of the shortest
on record. By the following, from the Herald, it
appears that the Commodore's passengers tendered
him a banquet in San Francisco :
Testimonial. Capt Paty, of the bark Comet, was
honored by the passengers on his late remarkable
trip (a little over ten df;ys) from the Saudwich
Islands to this port, with an elegant banquet at Mar
tin's on Saturday evening lust. Several Russian and
French officers were preseut, and the occasion was
one of much good feeling.

From New Zealand, the news of the discovery
of new good fields is confirmed, but it is stated that
the gold is not yet found in sufficient quantities to
warraut the great rush thither. Over lO.OOO per
sons had left Australia for New Zealand since the
gold was discovered. The following, from the N. Z.
.Ucertiser, gives the origin of the discovery, which
occurred in October last :
Tkkawiti Gold. We stated in our last the nug
gets which were shown to us by Mr. laker, baJ been
fuuud by a native iu about an hour, but we have
since been eiven to understand that the native was
several hours in obtaining it, and that he used neither
pick or shovel, bu t picked it out with his fingers.
Several parties went to Terawiti this, week, amongst
others Mr. W. ooJgate, who returnea on tnursuay
evening, and has shown us a nucget which he obtain-
in a small creek in the neighbourhood of the
Waireka stream. The gold is similar to that obtained
by the native shepherd, and is a very fine specimen.
.Mr. Woodgate reports upwards of 40 Maories at
work, who had obtained in two days about 2 ezs.
amougst thetu. There are also several Europeans
out prospecting, with what success we have not yet
heard. We understand that it is the intention of his
Honor the Superintendent to visit Terawiti, and we
trust that it will result ia a properly organized pros
pecting party being sent out uuder the management
of the Government.
Death: of a Chiefess. Ne retrret to announce
the death of Mrs. Jane Young Lahilahi Kaeo, the
wife of the late Hon. Joshua Kaeo. and sister to His
Excellency the late John Young, formerly Minister
of the Interior and Kuhiua Nui for this kingdom.
She was therefore an aunt to II. M. Queen Emma.
She died at her residence at Kuaehelani, Honolulu,
on the morning cf Sunday last, the 12th inst., after
a long illness of several years. She was the young
est daughter of the old John Young aud Kaowanaeha,
and is therefore descended from the noblest blood
of Hawaiian Royalty, on the mother's side.

Our rates for advertising are now lower than those of
weekly New lork papers, and far below what thre
ought to be, wheu the cost of labor here is taken into
account The expeuse of publishing a weekly paper
is much larger in proportion than in America or
England, far exceeding the receipts from both sub-
scriptiotis aud advertisements, and no paper in Hono
lulu cau be sustaiued except by the job work done in
thecfSee. We sec too many instances where advertis
ing proves to be of greater value to the advertiser
than its cost, to ailuw a doubt of its utility. Ta
many it has proved of more value their original cap.

away in advertising as easily as in an auction roooi
or at a gaming table, lo be able to discriminate
when, and how, aud to what extent to advertise, is
the great secret. -
