f of destitute American seamen. She reached her destination safely, and the investigations were conducted by Commander Hunt at the ports of Honolulu, Lahaina, and Hilo. The last official intelligence received by the Department from the Levant was a communication from Commander Hunt, dated Hilo, Sept. 3, 1860. He expected to takHilo, Sept. 3, 1860. He expected to take his departure in a short time for Panama. Not arriving at that port by January, Flag-Officer Montgomery despatched the steamers Saranac and Wyoming in search of her. The latter visited the Sandwich Islands and various localities on the route, making every possible inquiry for her. But no tidings of her were obtained, although it was definitely ascertained that she had sailed from Hilo on the 18th of September, 1860, direct for Panama. All hopes for her safety have long since been abandoned, and it now devolves on Congress, as in previous instances, to make such legislation as may be just and proper for the benefit of the families of the lamented office

Mr. Editor :--The Union, it must and shall be preserved! Well, that's just the way we feel up here in Hilo. So keep it beforeHilo. So keep it before the people. I cannot keep silent, therefore, and must blow a little about our own patriotism in this part of the King's domains, for we are not content that the worbrass piece was made to speak out 34 more echoes of loyalty, and I will say that Hilo beach never before witnessed so enthusiastic a scene. What, with the flags of aant shouts of the multitudes — all served to form a very pleasing assurance that Hilo, the paradise of Hawaii, was not without its smart sprinkling of that genus homonced the satisfaction with which they had spent the fourth day of July, 1861, in Hilo. Yours truly, Kalaniopuu. --Honolulu (Hawaiian Islands) Commercial Advertiser
