POTATOES.?300 buthrtg Lsocaehire cup t'otaiass of ,u7","J,,,'"^iT'jdCTffirar4S-a Prom the Sandwich Islands. By an arrival at New Bedford, we have received a file of the Polynesian to the 10th of Aug. 1844 The U S. shin Warren was then Iving in the harbor of Honolulu. The following officers were on board the Warren :? Commander, Joseph B. Hull, Esq.; first Lieutenant, William Rsd'ord; second Lieutenant, William W. Maury 5 Third Lieutenant, William B. Renshaw ; Acting Lieutenant, Jdhn Iluiledge; Master, Wil lamH. Montgomery; Surgeon, William J Powell; Pur ser, T. R. Ware; Assistant Surgeon. E. Hudson; Mid shiftmen, Frederic Kellogg, A w. Johnson, Raff D. Mi nor. A. M. De Sree, W. 07 Craue, Stanwix Oensevoort, JfiT'rton McRoberts. The Polynesian is the official journal of the Ha waiian government, and contains a list of the "principal officers of his majesty's civil adminis tration; of the chiefs entitled to rank; and of the present incumbents of the more important local ?*The Polynesian of July 20, contains an "order in council, prescribing acode of etiquette," report ed by the attorney general, and a proclamation by the king establishing it. This proclamation to the diplomatic corps residing near the court, commen j C<We)Uthe King and Premier, anxious to conform our selves, ss far as possible, to the ceremonies observed at the oonrta of other independent and sovereign powers, to testify our recognition of the binding force of publio con ventional uiages,iand to manifest our equal consideration | for all triendly nations, do ordain the following code of | etiquette: ? Article 1. The article* of (he arrangement of Vienna of 1814 and 1816 between the European powers, are here by adopted and considered in foroe, as the basis of court etiquette in the Hawaiian Islands. Then follows sundry details respecting the rank of agents, &c. The "order in council" makes the following declaration.. At the present time the United States of America is represented by a diplomatic commissioner in the nature of a charge; Great Britain by a consul general; and Fames by a local consul, who, by the laws of Franco, has diplomatic powers and dignity, in the absence of any ministers! a higher grade This ia the order in which, by the rules of Vienna, they ought to stand at your Ma jesty's court. It is also the order which ought to be as signed to them for two other reasons:? 1. Because the United State* of America first recognised publicly, and by an net of Congress, 19th Decanter, 1849, the sovereignty and independence of your Majesty a kingdom ; Great Britain on tba 1st of April, 1848 ; and France next recognized publicly, by her joint guarantee with Great Britain, dated the 8th November, 1848. 9. Because the American commissioner first presented his credentials on the 80th of October, 1848; the consul general of Her Britanic Majesty next?on the 10th ?f February, 1844; and the consul of France could not offi cially know the independence until after the joint gua rantee, so as to be considered as diplomatically accredited until that time. ? So that the reasons all seem to concur at present, for assigning to the three powers in reciprocity with your Majesty ihe following order 1 The United States of America. - 9 Great Britain. 8. Frarce. .... ,,. ., And this will, 1 treat, prove to these several friendly powers, that your Majesty, in assigning thorn places, holds them all alike in equal consideration and amity at your court; and that you are not disposed to depart from the sixth article of Vienna, by reason of having received greater mark* of friendship from one than from another. . The following extract from the Polynesian of | Aug. 3, will probably be as gratifying aa a similar account of the progress of royalty which recently reached us from another point of the compass:? Arrival of His Majesty ?His Majesty had been expected for some days previbua to the 30tn, but the veaaela on board of which he had embaik ed with hia auite from Lahaina. did not come in sight until nine o'clock, A. M , Tuesday, when the firing of a gun, and the hoisting of the large Ha waiian enaign on the battery on Punch-bowl Hill, announced the fact. Hia Excellency. Gov. Keku anaoa immediately left the harbor in his new and beautiful barge, to meet Hia Majesty. At twelve o'clock, as the little squadron, consisting of the schooners Hoikaika.Paalua, Victoria, and the new vessel recently built at Hawaii, came abreast of | the town, the nalnte of twenty-one guns was fired on Punch-bowl Hill. Soon after, the veaaela, with a fair breeze, entered the harbor, and Hia Majesty and suite embarked in the barge for the shore, the Hawaiian flag firing at the stern, and the royal standard at the bow. In passing the U. S ship Warren, her yards were manned and a royal salute fired, bothlof which attracted attention for the beautiful precision with which thev were executed His Majesty's household troope, 150 strong, and a company from the fort, in all 850 muakeie, were drawn up at the landing to receive him. The troops looked well, were neatly accoutred, and their offi cers made quite a ahewy appearance in their new uniforms. Hia Majesty stepped ashore amid the music of the band and the roar of cannons from the water battery, and with the Queen on hia arm, at tended by the Hon. Secretary of State. G. P. Judd. their Excellencies the Governors of Oahu and Maui, the high chiefs A. Paki, C. Kanaina, and Col J. Stephens, under escort of the Militafy, pro ceeded to Muana Kilika, the building fitted for hia Majesty's service while he remains in town. A large concourse of people were assembled to wit ness the royal cortege. Her Royal Highness the Premier, with the la dies of her court, aoon after landed from the Pa- { alua, and were received by the military under arms at Mauna Kilika, ihe band playing tha while "God save the King." Hia Majesty, during ihe remain der of the morning, was waited upon by the offi cers of hia government and ot the troops. The 'royal party were in excellent health and spirits. Royal audience waa given at eight o'clock in the evening to the representatives of foreign powers, and the residents generally, who were received by their Majesties the King and Queen, Her Royal Highness the Premier, and the ladies and gentle men of the court. The naloon waa fully illumina ted, the audience numerously attended, and lor Honolulu, this friendly aaaemblage of all parties, with the glitter of uniforms and the rich and taste 1 til Jresses, both of the Hawaiian ladies and foreign residents, rendered the spectacle both novel and ^The^paper of Auguat 10, accordingly furnishes an account of these festivities, occupying several columns It waa the annivenmry of the restoration of the Hawaiian flag by Admiral Thomas. The festival lasted three days It waa conducted en tirely on temperance principles, no wines of any kind being uaed We may give some further ac count of the ceremonies at a future day. . We do not perceive any intelligence politically important in these papera-unlesa the following come under that cateaory Admits! Thomas has given orders that for the present ao British war ships shall enter the harbor of Papeite, which ia the reason the frigate Thalia did not come to anchor there. We .also under stand that the Thalia sails for Valparaiso in a few *??e learn that the Tahitians are encamped 2000 strong, not far from Papeite, and threaten to re commence hoatilitiea if the French pass their boundary. _ Below are sundry other extraeta. The first in dicates that there are people in Honolulu who know when they are humbugged as well aa others The benevolent propensities of our American brethren not unfrequently display themselves in a remarkable manner. We have often been amused in witnessing the opening of some huge packago, prepared by kind souls afar off, for the comfort ot their friends this way But we venture to any, a greater or more striking display of charity, was never exhibited ia our streets, than during the progreM through ihem, of the huge pinewood pulpit, recently landed from the Globe. It has made its appearance here, cevered with carved work and cushions, whose lustre has somewhat . faded through long yearn of preaching, flights ot steps and all. If an Esquimaux, clothed in skins, | and redolent with train oil, had been sudden y dropped into onr principal thoroughfare, he would not nave been more astonished at the heat, than the recipients oi this bounty were at its magnitude. The cost of getting it here, cannot be much short of #200, and iis use may be represented thus, 0.? From 11a tout ensemble we are not at all surprised that its original proprietors were pleased to get it 20 000 miles from home. Novel Punishment ? On Saturday last the Governor sent a company ot prisoners through the greets, escorted by a file of soldiers sad attended by a crier, who called the attention of the popu lace, by asking of them it the conduct of the pris oners had been right. It appears that they bad been 'Apprehended for knocking out their teeth, tattoing themselves, and indulging in other practi ces of heathenism, and the Governor took this method ot exposing their shame to their fellow countrymen?a punishment that will be quite as efficacious, we doubt not, as bodily chastisement. Fouuth or July Accidint ?An accident lucky we?and a tourth of July one?really that reads as if wo were in the land of Yankeedom.? But to the accident. A friend of ours had his sun otdly burnt by a blue light, while engaged in illu minating in honor of the day, and it gives us the greatest satisfaction to state, that there ia evety ?respect oi the arm being in a condition to burn or burnt again, long before another fourth eomes round again.

The firsC meeting of this body for the new year was held on Tuesday evening, at their rooms in the Uaiversity ; the 1st Vice President, Mr Lawrence, j in the Chair, supported by the 2nd Vice President, Df. De Witt. Ths minutes having been read and approved, the Secretary read letters from Clinton Haring, of De troit, JohnV. L. Pruyn, and 3. 8; Remdake, Esqs. of Albany, acknowledging their election as corres ponding members. Professor Mason, the Treasurer, presented his annual report on the finances of the society from which it appeared that the receipts during the past year have been $2,026 12; the expenditures have amounted to 81 970 66 ?leaving a balance in the Treasury of $55 46, and about $500 now due from members ? The report further stated, that a large part of.lhe expenditures had been for book cases, fixtures, and old claims of many years standing, and that the society was now free from all debts and liabilities of every kind. Mr. Gibbs, the Librarian, announced the dona tions during the past month, and read a letter from Mr W A. Whitehead, of this city, presenting an original portrait of his grandfather, Lewis Morris, of Morrisania, the fa'her of Governeur Morris, our former minister to France, Sec. By whom it was painted is not known, but it has always been con sidered by the familv a good likeness. This por trait is a valuable addition to the historical gallery, as Mr. Morris was a prominent citizen of the Pro vince of New York, a member of the Legislature, and subsequently, until his death, Judge of Vice Admiralty for New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. Also a letter from Jos. G. Co -gswell, Esq , presenting the Biblioihrca Histories of Meu*el, which contains a better catalogue raitomni of books belonging to our history, than can be found elsewhere. The Historical Library was orignallv compiled by Struvens,?then enlarged by Buder, and finally brought out in its present form, every way im proved hy Meusel. Its plan is not merely to specify the various works referred to, under their appro priate heads, but also to give some account of their contents, and of the estimate in which they are held, and being written in Latin is or ought to be accep tible to every reader. Meusel, in his day, waB re garded as one of the most learned and accurate of 'he historical and statistical writers of Germany.? Mr. Coggswelljimported this work for his own use about a year since, but as it is rare here, there being no other copy ia New York, he generously presented it to the Society, regarding it as a work which will be more generally useful by placing it in a public library. Mr.JGiBBS read a letter from Robert Greenhow, Esq of Washington, in acknowledgement of the resolution passed by the Society, at their last meet ing, requesting hiin to prepare a memoir on the Discovery and Exploration of the Atlantic Coast of the United States. Mr. Greenhow stated-lhat the history of the Northern portion of the coast has been investigated with minuteness, and that with respect to that portion he should have to perform only the humble office of abridging. With regard to the coast South of the Delaware, and especially that of the Northern side of the Mexican gulf, Borne researches in which he has been engaged, have convinced him that much curious, if not im portant information lies buried in volumes rarely opened. Mr Greenhow. has already collected many valuable facts relating to the discovery and settlement of the countries last named, which he will in any event communicate to the Historical Society. ,,. , , The Librarian then read his annual report on the state of the library, giving an account of the addi tions thereto during the year, and submitting a lifct of the same. The report contained also a state ment of the progress of the catalogue of the library, now preparing, and urged upon the Society the necessity of providing a library fund. Gen.

I The Executive Committee closed their interesting and valuable rej o "t by observing that they hud no desire, nor was it their province, imp< rtunelely to nrgethe claims of the Historical coctety upon the liberality of its mem bers, or or the public ; but they Wt it to be an impart, '.ire duty to ask earnestly, in the city oi New York, . wealthy end pjwerful, and justly proud of her position, character, an" resources, whether a quiet sense of duty, and a feeling of just liberality ought net to odtte with e worthy sentiment of New York pride ia placing the Library ot the Institution upon e footing that shall render it an honor tb the munificence of her cMmns. . Dr. Thomss Ward, at the request of the Executive Committee, read a poem on the "Romance of American History," which was received with applause, and the thanks of the Society were returned to the author. The Librarian read two interesting tatters written by Major Samuel I Thurston, of the Connecticut Continen tal Line, to hi* brother-in-low, Mr. Wenstay Hobby o< Vtiddletown, CL, dated at PeefcahiO. In the year 1777. , The Society then proceeded to the election of officers for the ensuing year. Messrs Meson and Knapp were ap pointed tellers Jand the first ballot resulted as follows, the three first officer* or the Society being beliotted tor '"UtIlawbxwcs, the 1st Vice President, stated before proceeding to the election, that letters of reffignation had been received from Mr De Pay star, the Foreign Corres ponding Secretary ; Mr Folsom, the Domestic Corns ponding Secretary, and Mr. Jay, tha Recording Secre tary. Besides these, he knew ot no other resignation by any officer of the Society. ArlWiMh Hon lAlbert Gallatin *? For Viet. Pr trident. Hon. Luther Bradish S3 Wm B.

McMurray, Geo Curtis, Townsend, Harris, Mason, and Suydam, Judge Jones and other*. ?Mr. Laws sires requested that tha motion might be with, drawn, and made some very proper and touching remarks, In the course of which he exhibited strong emotion, on the relation ta which he had stool to the societyduring the last eight yew* He noke with pride or his connection with their distinguished President, who, he said, had intended to resign his office, but who had consented to remain at his earnest solicit* tion?and clised with remarking that the gentlemen whom the society had selected to succeed himself was one who would do baser to the station. The society having refused, before the speech of Mr. Lawrence to go into a new rleotion, Mr. McMurray moved a reconsidera tien of the vote, which was again warmly debated, and Dr. DelWitt, the 9d Vice PrvsiMnt, rioted that it had long been hie sinoere desire to resign his office, and hoped the society would sltow him to do so now.

General Tallmadge, the President, took the chair precisely at 12 o'clock ; the duties ol Secretary were performed by Mr. Mtig?, who opened the business, if we may Use that term, by reading one or two communications from correspondents of tbe Society, relative to the rais ing of mushrooms, and something else. Exhibitions being next in order, Mr. Msios sub mitted for the inspection of that learned body, four potatoes of tolerable siae, and not exactly small, observing, that they were deserving of keen examination, enjoying the classic name of perpert, and possessing many good qualities, which, if they were,cooked would be quite discernible to any one with a tolerable appetite. (Assent from all parts of the house.) The President?I am clearly of opinion, that these potatoes are of French descent, and of a most healthy race. (General movement of curiosity, and free interchange of- opinion, in a low voice, about the potatoes ) Gentlemen?If you will take your seats and come to order, we will proceed to a further exhibition. (All Beated?solemn silence ) I wish to state that my friend,Mr Bell,of the packet ship company has been industriously engaged in obtaining for the benefit of bis country and all posterity, a remarkable Kind of pear, ol which 1 will ask him to produce a specimen, and explain it as he goes along. (Mr. Bell here exhi bited a couple of pears, apparently good fruit, to which all eyes was directed ) Gentlemen, con tinued the President, the pear which now lies on the table weighs just 18 ozs , 17 pennyweights, as I weighed them this morning in Mr. Geddmgr gold balance. (Sensation). ? Mr Bell being preBsingly invited, gave aaketch, genealogical, historical, and horticultural, of the above mentioned Iruit. He had with much pains procured twoyoung trees from France, which were now growing in his garden in Staten Island The breed was first introduced into France by Napo leon, who demanded the great pear from the uraad Turk, when in his eipedition to Egypt; and the stock was a native of Angora, the ancient Ancyra, part of the dominions of Turkey in Europe. A Member?Have tha trees borne fruit yet, Mr. Bell 1 Mr. Bell?They are only two years old. Another Member asked whether Mr. Bell had . tasted the fruit, or was enabled to pronounce the ] pear a good one. M . Mr. Bell?Yes, sir; it is excellent. Mr. Cumming?Allow me to say that some ob jections have been made to the effect that it is identical with our pound pear, and one very dis tinguished horticulturist and practical farmer, Mr. Reid, gave that aa his impression. ? The President was disposed to believe that the decendsnts of the Angora pear were already in this country, and were none other than those known as the pound pear. , , , Mr. Waightman?Will the pound pear keep a long time !l .... . . T l. Mr. i tjmming?I don't know, sir; but I have heard Mr ?? rcfose a large price for his pears. President^-As Mr. Bell has taken the trouble to procure these pears, I thought it important to an nounce it to the Institute. Mr Meios?Has Mr. Cumming ever seen the pound pearl Mr. Cummtno?No, I have not. The President?The great object we all have in view, is to stimulate the public and all interested, to make effort in improvements ot all kinds. Ann we therefore feel a great obligation to Mr. Bell, lot his exertions, and happv that this country was now in possession of the Angora pear. (A considerable pHM?) The President again arose and said, that they should now proceed to anothersubject. (A pause.) If there was nothing elae before the house, he woulc submit to them a few remarks. Gen. Tallmadge here addressed the meeting in a filteen mmutes speech, and presented a catalogue or txpotUion of the great fair held every four years, by royal autho rity at Paris, for the encouragement of commerce and the arts. It had been procured through hie friend Mr. Jay, and was full of valuable suggeit'ons. in its enumeration of the various productions of the skill and science of the French people The speaker in the course of his address, instituted a very unfavorable comparison for the American go vernment, between it, and that presided over by the tyrant Louis Philippe.who, to do him justice,un derstood and promoted the solid interests of bis sub jects; and concluded by exhibiting a porcelain ink stand of curious construction, obtained at the French capitol by Mr J?v. and for which a patent was there taken out in 1830. . . A Member?1 believe we have that kind of ink stand in this city now. A Voica?Yes, plenty of them. Another Voice?I have seen it in England also, but not in that style. President?It is the style that strnck me. We will now go to another subject i a friend of mine at Neuvitas, on the Sonth side of the Island of Cuba, has sent me a book containing the particulars of an agricultural association there, which I submit for the perusal of any gentleman who can read donnish. (A pause, during which it lay on the "mr? Meigs?(Taking up the book)?This book, airt I find pays a small compliment to the Amen can Institute. (Marks of approbation.) President?Read it, Mr Meigs. _ Mr. Meigs proceeded to read from the Spanish pamphlet a few liuea bearing friendly testimony to the utility of the American Institute, and expressive of the conviction that they had nothing in Cuba to surpass its herculean labors in the cause of agri The President, before introducing the principal subject for the discussion of the day. (the estab lishment of an agricultural college and model farm in the vicinity of New York,) drew the attention of the meeting to the Report of the Secretary of the Treasury, for the purpose of correcting certain fallacies which prevailed in the public mind, and which were not likely to be corrected by that document. Gen. Tallmadge spoke half an hour on matters of political economy, the export of bul lion, the tariff, high protective duties, commerce, manufactures, and protection, d la Asglau, as a a bask tor national prosperity; all which seemed io convince the audience that there wai some thing rotten in Denmark " The agricultural college was then taken up. Mr. Meigs made a sensible speech on the subject, and was followed by Dr. Underbill, Professor Mapes, Mr. Wakeman, and the President; but as there was no resolution proposed, and an extraordinary number of truths propounded and proved as clear as five and lour make ten, it is unnecessary to say more than that they all were unanimous tu ending the debate, at three o'clock, just where they began. Affairs in Hudson.?Extract of a letter dated, Hudson, Jan. 5,1845 ?" The expedition that start rd from this place on Friday evening at 7 o clock, P.M., consisting of 32 men of the A. B.C. and 24 of the Albany Rep. Artillery, under the order ot Captains King and Cook, have not, up to this time, been heard from. They went to arrest a person by the name of Hutchings, residing in the neighbor hood of Copake, who has acted aa prophet to the self-styled Indians. He is considered as one of the most dangerous men among the Anti-rents in his resistance to the sheriff, and is strongly implicated in the recent murder. The military were to pro ceed te Hutchings' residence, and if he was not to be found, were to quarter at hia house till he should return. Thia te one kind of a aeige, end may be successful, but I doubt it. Hutchings will not be very likely to throw himself voluntarily into the hands of the law, charged with such enmee The troops from Albany mutter here quite strong. The ABC. have abont 40 muskets; the A.R. A. have about 50; the V. R. G. about 45; the Wash ington Rifle Corps about 30; the Emmet Guards have this morning 62, together with officers, muai cianij &c v to the number of 76. This speaks well for the Emmets. Moetof the companies have mem bers upon furlough, which makes it difficult to state the exact numberpresent." t . P. S. 1 o'clock, P. M.? Authentic information haa just arnved, that Friday night's expedition ar rifed st their place of destination about halt an hour too late; the bird had flown. This is owing to the Indians having watches upon the road, to give the alarm whenever a posse is seen approaching.

Indeed the inhabitants of the wild West are beginning to build large sized steamboats, and are seriously thinking of connecting the Mis sissippi with the Lake by a water communication through the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers, to be na vigated by steam vessels.

Cue off Bishop Benjamin T. Ontlerdonk, D.D Mt. Editor,? . . , . ? . Having seen several articles in the daily press, commenting! on the decision of the Ecclesiastical Court, which has receatly given a verdict adverse to the Bishop of New York, and which seem to inculcate that said decision must, as a matter of course, direct and decide public opinion on the subject, will you permit one who has yet to lorm an intelligent opinion in relation to these proceed ings to suggest that the public, and especially the members of the Episcopal Church, owe it to them selves, as well as to all the parties concerned, to withheld a decision as to tne correctness ot the finding and sentence of the Court until the publi cation of all the proceedings ot said tribunal; The tact that the Court was not unanimous, either in ihe verdict or sentence, ia sufficient cause for such S'ispf eioutof opinion. If it be true, as is asserted* without denial, that six of the Bishops constituting the Court, voted for acquittal, I tor one am desirous of a-certatning with which party I am to vote, whether with tha majority or the minority. So far as public opinion is conctrned, every persoo being about to be put in full poaseesion of all that waa before the Court in relation to the charge against Bisnop Onderdonk, must make up an opi nion on the merits of the case. We know tha' juries have often given verdicts which have been reversed, on an appeal to a higher tribunal; ano this, when the veidict has been, sb the trial by iurv requires, unanimous If unanimity in a de cision is not in all caaea a proof ol its justice, a de cision made by a majority, with six such names as De Lancey, Ives, Doane, Kemper, Gadsden, and Whittiogham, in the minority, should be received with caution. It ia true, it appears, it the state ments made be correct, that these six Bishops voted alter wards for the sentence of suspension, which haa been pronounced against the Bishop ot New York; but this act, done probably to save him from a greater injustice in their opinion, de mands from the public, on thetr account, a suspen sion ot opinion until the whole of the proceedings are before the world.Who that readsin the pages of ecclesiastical history, the action of similar tribu nals in relation to Bishops, even deposed, and af terwards restored Bibhops whose names and vir- j tues have come down to our day as examples ot I purity and integrity, while the names of their con demners have sunk into oblivion, or are remem bered with abhorrence, does not think it possible 1 hat the recent trial may go down to posterity with a similar result 1 Such a possibility should make us pause Let us give to Bishop Onderdonk that which the law awards to common felons?a can did hearing. In their case there is, after a verdict, an opportunity for appeal to a superior tribunal, bui judicially there is none in his? The tribunal ol public opinion is the only appellate court now open to Bisnep Onderdonk. Let us then fairly review the testimony and decide accordingly. Believing uo more in the infallibity of a dozen Bishops than in that of the Bishop of Rome, I mean for my part to exercise in this matter the right of private judgment in its fullest extent, as a good Protest art.

It appeared that some time in 1*48, a brother of the defendant called on the plaintiffs, who had a large establishment in this city, and gave them a note drawn by defendant and a party named Hawra, for p3 866 S6, the above amount, which they received on condition that when the note was paid it should be credited to the de fendant aa liquidation in fUll for all their demands against him.

To this the plaintiff# rejoin that they knew nothing of this special power of attoiney, and teat they received the defendant's brother aa ?*? general agent, and when they received the note they still held the de fendant liable on the original purchase.
