From the Sandwich Islands : A single copy of the Polynesian of November 24th is the only paper we have received by a recent arrival from Honolulu, and this contains but little calculated to interest tho world abroad. We perceive that the "turbulent waters" lashed into commotion by the French aggression of July last have not yet subsided, but the rumbling of the retiring storm is without force or effect, as no new disclosures appear to have been made. The M. Dillon correspondence is "dragging its slow length along," and we fear that the displeasure of our neighbors will not soon "burn out," judging from what the Polynesian publishes. The following is a list of shipping in the port of Honolulu, Nov. 15 : Am sloop of war Preble, Com. Glynn, for San Francisco. Merchant Vessels. -- Am mer bk Mary, Bailey, S. H.

Jenny Lind. As an idea of the value of music in the United States we clip the following characteristic letter from Barnum of the American Museum, relative to his offer to engage the "Swedish Nightingale." Those who dance must cortainly "pay the piper" and "face the music" if the terms therein stated are to be considered. Sweet sounds are very delightful, but we are of opinion that Dr. Franklin would consider Mr. Barnum was "paying too much for his whistle." Mk. BxNMfirr Much against my will, it has "got into tho papers" that I am endeavoring to engage tho "hwodish Nightingale" America; Vide Philadelphia Inquirer of. yesterday, and Lodger of this morning. It has beon stated that her agent is hero, and that I have offered her $50,000 for two hundred nights, &amp;amp;o. I would have preferred keeping this subject out of the public prints for the present; but sinco it is broach od, and is erroneous in its most important particulars, 1 beg lcavo to correct it. Ist.
