In conc!uion, I would inform you that Messrs.
Melchers & Co. have received the rape or rather
raps. .sped, from Germany. Some months ago I re
quested from Mr. Shaefer, the tavor to procure some
of this valuable oil seed from Germany, and Mr.
Melchers, by sending the seed by way of California,
has re-pop. led with a promptness and celerity, that
bears wi'ness, not only to the lively interest he stiil
takes in the progress of these inlands, though far
away, but .-.lso to the value which he sets on the in
troduction of this oil-tdant. Raps is thenust valu
able of all crops raised in Germany, and would be
one of the best remittances to that country. In fact,
Mr. Iteiners urged on me years ago, the introduction
of the raps culture, and said that their firm would
purchase every pound these islands c uld produce.
I am, from slicht experience with a kindred seed from
Japan, certain of success, larj:e yield and quick
crops. ! would urge mot earnestly on the wheat
growers of Maui and Hawaii to procure some teed
from Messs. Meletiprs Co. anil mnke trials. T
those unacquainted with the culture I will cheerfully
give all information, that I rasess from experience.
Yours respectfully, IIols'Ikin.

is derived from a gentleman who left the Rappahan

The late.-t news from Chanceliorsville is, that Gen

The result, among others, of Gen. Banks' expedition,
was the accomplishing a march of over three bun
