Huntington had reasoned with himself as Martyn had once done, and with the same result. lie built himself a home, furnished it hand somely, but not extravagantly. He gave no parties; but a spare plate daily awaited some chance guest at dinner, and every evening saw some one enjoying the hospitalities he was happy in extending. The Mar tyns are happy as they lock at the new. house, to think that by their example, they were instrumental in bringing this to pass; in lifting Edward Huntington from the slough of despond in which he seemed sinking; and in setting before their fellow-men the sure recipe for the cure of that unhappy distemper, Hard Times."

Honolulu is a pleasant place, but it is not the only spot worth visiting. During the summer month?, when the weather becomes a few degrees warmer, and clouds of dus-t and strong winds, sweeping and careoring over the town, create a de 1 sire for a change to the luxuriant fields and cooler breezes of Kauai, which lies somewhat nearer a colder clime, numbers leave the dusty seaport for that Island. Oahu Las hitherto borne the character of being the garden of the group, but let the reader follow mo in my wanderings over Kauai, and I think that he will agree with me in asserting that to that island more properly belongs the distinction, lu voyaging from island to island, there is but little choice in the means of conveyance; a c...

COBT IVlERCIJlIi. WEDNESDAY EFJPG, MAY 13, 1357. Wb have noticed a considerable improvement in trade the last week, owing to the arrival of the Yankee, as noticed In our last issue, and the war steamers Pearl and Est, both of the latter requiring coal and various articles of stores. Sales of considerable quantities of goods have been effected at auction . The stock of coal in market is short at the present time. We believe no considerable parcel has been imported here since the Cynthia's cargo, from Sydney, nearly a year ago. The local consumption is, however, very small, the main dependence be ing upon chance steamers touching for fuel. The Yankee, for San Francisco, has engaged a full freight. Oil ex E. L. Frost and Black Warrior , forma the greater part. The amount of produce going forward will be Email. We learn thar the schooner F. H. Allen is daily expected from San Francisco with a cargo of salt.

There the scurvy, the worst of all ailments for a -wounded body and diseased con stitution, repeatedly attacked him, and his preserva tion and return is little less than miraculous, forci bly illustrating the power of the mind over the body. The daring and adventurous spirit of Dr. Kane has indissolubly connected his name with Arctic adven ture, while his services in the field of geographical discovery and scientific research have redounded to the honor of his country. He has shed luster upon the country of his birth while achieving a name for himself. A nation will sorrow at the loss of one whose few years of life held out the hope of many long years of continued usefulness, and who was cut down in the vigor of manhood and when he had but just reached the zenith of his fame.

J . COMMEHCIAL. WEDNESDAY EVE'G, MAY 20, 1S57. The past week has been decidedly the dullest of the Beaton. We hare observed but little movement In any branch of busi ness. The slight impetus fciven to tirade by the arrival of the Yankee, with invoiced of desirable goods, seems to have entirely died away. At auctions a fair quantity of goods have been sold, but at prices considerably lower than wenoticed last week. The barVentir-e Jenny Ford, for Puget Sound, and the bark Metropolis, for Columbia River, sailed on Saturday. The latter took 50 tons sugar, on owners' account, a larger amount than has been exported in any one vessel this year, excepting the export by the Yankee on her last trip. The Yankee sails to-morrow, and is compelled to decline a considerable quantity of freight this trip, she being filled to her utmost capacity, even carrying all the deck cargo she can. S17GAB Sales of 100 half bbls, oa private terms, for export. The market remains about the same as at our last re...

The departure of the Yankee, on Thursday last, left our har bor entirely bare of foreign shipping, with the exception of the French corvette Eurydice, and for one entire week it has remained so. We have, therefore, no foreign arrival or departures to record. A similar occurrence has not, we believe, happened' for many years. In 1850, at this season, there were seventeen foreign vessels in port, nearly all of which were merchantmen. In 1854, there were but two. This dis parity is tiomewhat remarkable. An old resident, speaking, the other day, of the harbor, said that he had never seen it so bare of shipping for eighteen years, excepting once, twelve years ago, when for a day or two there was not a single mast to be seen in the harbor not even the smallest coasting sloop or schooner. It would seem that t...

THE PATHS OF THE SEA, The following will give some idea of the eloquent lecture of Lieutenant Maury on ' he Paths of the Sea," recently delivered in the principal cities: m the U. H. Wonders of the Sea-Bottom. But let us pass from the deep above to the deep "below. The lead is let down to ie lottom of the sea, and it is curious to gee the work that is soiner on there. Beautiful coral islands are built up there; perhaps a part of a one, if we could dissect it, would be lound to nave come down the Mississippi, from the Rocky Mountains, or to have been borne upon the bosom of the. great Amazon, from the tropics of South America; or, indeed, parts in that island may have come from every part of the world, by routes which, if we could trace them, would seem wonderfully long and strange. In the cell which one of these little animalcule has built for itself, we should recognize a part of the Table Rock from Niagara, and .sand from the Holy Mountains. It may contain matter from the Euphra t...
