The Sandwich Islands, according to the modern acceptation of the term, are makinfe rapid progress in civilization. The natives have completely orga nized courts of law?have regular law officers of the crown?they enter into diplomatic conespondence with foreign governments; and have, we suppose, erected several gibbets and jails. We make several extracts from the Polynttian, which are worth reading. They will prove inter esting to the fashionable portion of this commu nity. , [From the Honohula Polynesian, Nov. 1.] Fashionable News.?The Hon. Capt. Gordon, of H. B. M.'s ship America, attended by three of his officers, and with the British Consul General, paid a friendly visit to the King last Tuesday. His Majesty took occasion to express the pleasure he felt in making the acquaintance of the gallant captain,as the brother or the Karl of Aberdeen, who had shown so much attention to his commissioners in London, and all whose communications had been so kind and friendly, and requested the captain to make known to the noble Karl his sentiments of osteem. The King added that he was much obliged to her grace the Duchess of Somerset, Sir Augustus d'Kste, the Karl ol Selkirk, the Right Honorable Kdwaid KUice, and other distinguished personages who had befriended his commissioners. The gallant captain very oourteously replied that he would have an opportunity of writing soon, and would make his Majesty's sentiments known to the Earl of Aberdeen. Musical Soiree at the Palace.?The Hon. Captain Gordon, of H. B. M.'s ship America, had the kindness to send on shore, on Wednesday evening, for the enter tainment of the King, his fine band, composed of about twenty well trained musicians, of an excellence in their art far beyond any thing that had ever before been beard in Honolulu. Maclnlyre, bis Scotch piper, struck up ?ton the wild and exciting strains of old Scoton martial airs, at half-past 8 o'clock, and the band commenced soon af terwards, beginning with the national anthem, alterna ting with the piper in some very select and well execu ted pieces of music, till about 10 o'clock, when the na tional anthem was repeated, and the musicians retired. His Majesty, desirous that others as well as himself, should partake of an entertainment which so seldom of fers on his Islands, ordered that notice should be given to the principal residents and their families. Although the evening was cold, damp and stormy, there was a greater assemblage of the elite of Honolulu than had ever before been witnessed on any other similar occa sion. Distinctions of nation, party and family, seemed to be lost tin the general harmony and hilarity which prevailed. To this, in no small degree, contributed the kind aflability to all, of the King and Queen, the very courteous and polite bearing of the gallant Captain him self, and the pleasing influences which fine music never fails to produce * After the missionary families had retired, dancing commenced with the reel of Tulloch-gorum, played by the JPP*Ti quadrilles, kc., followed to the music of ihe Maclntyre, the Scotch piper, in the romantic garb of Caledonia, was an object ot great and universal interest He played round the drawing rooms repeatedly during the evening, measuring bis steps to the time of the air that he was playing. The bagpipes, and every article of his attire down to nis dark kilt, garter, dirk, hose and buckles, excited the curiosity of the company. The good humored Highlander had olten to stop to allow some part of hia dress and equipment to be examined. The piper belongs to Argyleshire, but he wore on the occasion the Gordon tartan, with silver buckles and shoulder ornaments richly chased. The Scotch cap and eagle's featherformed his head dress. The i kind courtesy to Ihe King, and chiefs cf the honorable Captain Gordon, upon this occasion, has re animated the never forgotten impressions left by the earlier British navigators; and we know it was much appreciated by their majesties, the King and Queen. The foreigners of rank present were the Hon. Capt. Gordon, witn several of his officers; H. B. M.'s Consul General; the Consul of France with his lady; the Consul of the United States with his lady, and Mr. Marshall, the Consul for Feru. Among thoee oonnected with the King's msoommpomt, present, were the following, vis i?The Premier of the kingdom, with his lady; nrkl, and other chlefii with their ladies; Dr. and Mrs. Rooks, Alexander, the heir apparent; and the other young chiefs of both sexes, tif S ether with all his Majesty's Ministers; Mrs. Judd, with three Misses Jnddj'Mra.

The rooms were so crowded that it is possible others were present whose names have escaped our notice. Political News ?Our readers have had before them weekly, for two months past, a aeries of diplomatic correspondence between this government and the Eng lish Consul General. Heretofore the public have been aware that difficulties existed of an unpleasant charac ter, but have been entirely in the dark as to their merits. This obscurity no longer exists, so tor as a judgment can be formed by a perusal of the documents themselves. Having carefully gone through the whole, there seems to exist two distinct genera of differences ; those grow ing out of matters, which by some reason or other have been exalted into a national moment, and others of alto gether a personal character, involving merely differences ol opinion on minor matters. It is with the first that we have to do in.this article ; the second will meet prompt attention. Within a twelvemonth our public men have se manag ed as to excite the wrath of our imperious step-mother: and even our kind parent by culture, she that nurtured us into juvenescence, shakes her bead ominously. Well, if we have been wilful children, we cannot hope to es cape chastisement; for both these good dames are genu ine disciples of solomon. But as they are reasonable, , before they give vent to wrath, they will undoubtedly inquire into the character of the nurses. y Unddr the head of national differences, we have been able to sift out only these four 1st. The oath of allegiance. 3d. Injustice of the Courts 3d. Case of the Code of Etiquette. 4th. Claim of Charlton to certain lands. The subject of .the oath of allegiance was one easily settled, the doctrines held here being essentially the same as those admitted in England and the United States. Amid the numbers of Englishmen that have taken the oath ol allegiance to this government, but one case that could have given rise to debate has occurred, that of Pe ter Jordan. We cannot commend too highly the pertinent remarks of Consul-General Miller, in the case of Mellish, al though we deprecate his apparent readiness to listen to oomplaints from dubious quarters, snd make them the source of unnecessary trouble. It settles, however, the important question that diplomatic interference in Judi cial matters should not commence until injustice begins, and the nation is guiltless of injustice while any tribu nal in its legitimate suoceeaion remains untried. The lew hereafter will be allowed to run Its courae as in other countries. General Miller has sot an example in this particular worthy of himself and nation, and we trust it will put an end to the vexatious system of prema ture consular interference. The subject of the code of etiquette has boon taken up with much gravity by the Earl of Aberdeen and the Con sul General! But we fear the public will view it eome what differently, when Punch or the still mora merci less Times or Spectator lay the might of their quills upon it. Seriously, one would have thought that when the nation, needing no code of etiquette to regulate Its own ceremonials, and timorous ot its own Judgment, sought to adopt a rule of civilised Europe, to arrange matters which Irom the notorious sensitiveness of pub lic agents are ever fruitful points of discord, from the weight of authority from which it derived that rule, it would forever have settled the matter. " * England says, a Consul General at the Hawaiin Islands is equal to a Commissioner. Judging by the information on these matters to be derived from standard works, we come to a different conclusion. A Commissioner or Deputy, ac cording to Marten's Manuel, is entitled to sll the privi leges or immunities of the 3d or 3d eiasaes of diplomatic agents, to wit . Envoys and Ministers, or Charges d'Af laires The United States have sanctioned this rule, by accrediting Commissioners to powerful countries, with

salaries equivalent torasident ministers. She invests them exclusively with diplossatic powers A Consul Ge neral, although possessing diplomatic authority, en grosses in himself the consular also, which is ot an infe ? ior grade. So that to our mind, a Commissioner being entirely free from this, is ol superior rank, and the Unit ed States have en equal right with England to dictate to the King a corresponding relative position for their off! cars. If unfortunately tney should see fit to do so, what can the poor man do. [From the Honolulu Polynesian, Oct 38 ] H.

March 16.?Divorce Cam.?John Doe vs. Richard Roe.?This wai an iuue from the Court of Chancery.? The real parties in the cause are William Williams and Eliza Jane Williams, his wife. Mr. Williams, about a Tear ago, filed a bill in Chancery, alleging that his wife had, at various times, been guilty of adultery with one James Passmore, and praying that the marriage might be dissolved. The Vice Chancellor, as is usual in >uch cases, referred it to a Master, to inquire and report upon the truth of the allegations and charges in the bill. The Master made his report, but the Vice Chancellor not deeming the facts suaoiently conclusive, directed that an issue should be made up and sent to the Circuit Court, there to be passed upon by a Jury, under the di rection of the Circuit Judge. Mr. Jordan conducted the case for the husband, and Mr. Brady appeared for the defence. Mr. Jordan opened the case as follows. He said this was an action in the form of a record between John Doe and Richard Roe, and is what is called a feigned issue ; but the case is substantially between William Williams and Eliza Jane, his wife. Williams is a German by birth, and came to this country some] years ago; and since his arrival he has been engaged in a smalljbut res Gstable business. In 1833, he became acquainted with rs. Williams, and in the same year married her. They continued to live together for a number of years after wards, Mrs. Williams continuing to conduct herself with reasonable degree of propriety ; but, latterly, her -----? ' ble, that ' " conduct became so intolerable, that he could not live with her any longer; and, finally, she removed from his home, and took lodgings in another place, and the hus band continued to pay tor her board. In 1642, she went to a boarding house in Rutgers street?a house of re spectable character, and reputably kept, although the persons who boarded there were generally of moderate means, and the majority of them females. At the time she went there, there were three or four other females boarding at the house, and amongst them a Mrs. Coles, a widow lady. This lady and Mrs. Williams occupied one room for some, time after the went there, and with the exception of be ing occasionally intemperate, she behaved (herself toler ably well-, she went out, however, occasionally at night, ana sometimes staid out all night, saying when she came home, that the remained with her friends, so that no sus picion was excited. It chanced that after the first month another boarder was taken in, and it was necessary that either Mrs. Williams or Mrs. Coles should take another bed room; Mrs. Willisms consented to take a very small room on the same floor with the ball, in which there was no furniture but a carpet, the bed, one chair, and a wash hand stand and basin. Shortly after she removed to this room, a man made his appearance, whom she called James Cliff, and introduced to the family as her brother James, and we have, said Mr. Jordon, the most abundant and conclusive testimony, that she passed him elf as her brother, a relation of so near a kindred as was calculated to justify the closest intimacy between them. They would show that he was in the habit of coming thereat all times, and instead of occupying the sitting room, he was in the habit of going i ito the bed room ana sitting there until dinner time ; that at dinner time he went away, and came back immediately after, and re mained until tea time; then went away again and return ed a tar tea, and continued until a late hour at night.? A repetition of this conduct excited some suspicion in the minds of the persons who kept the boarding house, and of the ether boarders, and in proportion as their sus picions were excited,the curiosity of the female portions of the family was excited also. In consequence of these suspicions, several ingenious devices were resorted to, in order to find out whether their suspicions were well founded or not. The approaches to the room were then reconoitred, and it was found that the door was always locked; the key hole was next looked through,and it was also found that something was hung from the top of the door which tell over the keyhole, so that nothing could be seen of what was going on inside. Mr. Jordon stated that some other indicstions of gnilt were ascertained, so that no donbt was left on the minds of the family, that improper conduct was carried on between the parties, and finally Mrs. Willisms was dismissed from the house. They would also show that this man she called James Cliff, was not her brother, nor did one drop of her blood run in his veins ; but that he turned out to be a man named James Passnf-re, who was neither kith or kin to her. The counsel then made some othor re marks and concluded by calling? MichY. Fsantisois, who was sworn and examined?He testified that he kept a boarding house at.'42 Rutgers St.; Mrs. Williams. Mrs. Coles, and some other females, boarded with him ; his wife superintended the domestic arrangements of the establishment; Mrs. Williams came to witness'house about the first of September, 1042, and remained there about three months ; she and Mrs. Coles occupied the same room ; she subsequently chaoged her bed-room, in consequence of taking another female boarder, and took a small foom on the same floor with the hall; aha commenced occupying it on the first of from the November ; there was no door from the sitting room to the bed-room; the only door that led to it was from tlie halt ; she stopped out several nights, but witness has no recollection whether it was daring the first two months; knows a man named James Passmore ; first saw him in 1842 ; was introduced to him by Mrs. Williams; she in troduced him as her prother James. Josdoiv?State now to the court and jury when he came, how long he remained, what he was doing, and ; who let him in and out. Witskss?He generally came in the mornir^ after ; breakfast, remained until dinner, then went out, and re turned Immediately after, and staid until tea time, when he went out and returned again and staid until a late hour at night: saw them go into the room together some times ; saw him go In before her, and saw her go in I ; afterwarps ; heard them converse together, but could ' not hear distinctly what it was they said. The witness then went on to.detail some other evidence, which we : omit. Ha underwent a long cross examination by Mr. , Brady, with a view to show that Passmore 'a visits were made to another lady boarder at the witness's house, and not to Mrs. Williams. After the cross-examination i of the witness was finished, the court adjourned. The j , cause will bo rotumed this Honing. I Court of Ooneral Heaulosig.

I greet the readers oi your immortai Herald with my first epistle .from this city of coal-smoke and noisy children, steam-engines and handsome wo men; and, to use the emphatic words of Jo McCann, " I hops my endeavors to please may meet with their approbation." This is a delightful day, as far as a genial sunshine is concerned ; hut the higbwsys and byways are sprinkled with an amount of mud, which renders walking any thing but an agreeable pastime. The valetudinarian casts a longing glance upon this combination of pleasant and disagreeable things, and then yearns from his heart of hearts, for the dry walks and balmy airs of the glorious spring. Business is beginning to revive a little, and extensive preparations are being made for building in the burnt district this coming summer. \You would be astonished to ramble through this melancholy arena of fiery deso lation, and behold the gigantic improvements that have taken place since this awful'visitant swept over our city, ft argues well for the energy and perseverance of our people. It shows how far ? the spirit of laudable industry can triumph over mighty calamities?how tar the spirit of an undaunted hope can struggle with for midable opposition, and roll on the tide ot improvement in the faoe of dangers that thieatened to bury in one common ruin the earnings of all. Pittsburgh will soon be herself again?not full of little huts, like an Irish town, but crowned with houses of noble proportions ; not desolate and full of woe, like a deserted city, but filled with life and determination, industry and joy. I have been standing on the wharf to-day, and looking . - * an at the large number of steamboats receiving their finish ! from the hands of our mechanics. What, in the name ol all that is glorious, can these crafts be for 7 There is not a little fat captain running on the Ohio, Mississippi or Missouri rivers, who will not tell you that his trade is completely used up. Some of these weather-beaten gents will ge a little further than this, and make no bones about denouncing any Individual as a consummate block head, who dares to turn his attention to a river-faring life in hope of making a profitable living out of it. Butali this farrago about what is right and what is wrong, will not even check for a moment the go-ahead, keep-ber moving spirit which characterizes the children of thewest. To build a magnificent steamer at this port, and then run her to the " Grave Yard," or some other destructive region, and consign her to the muddy waters of the Mis sissippi, will only give a new impulse te the company who planned and got up tbe unfortunate boat. The peo ple in the east,who pay but little attention to these things, can scarcely form a dim idea of the amount of travelling done upon these western waters ; much less would thoy estimate the number of human beings that are hurried into eternity by the accidents which happen through a frequent reckless disregard for human life, and a foolish ambition to get forward with railroad speed in defiance of rocks, trees, and snags of every kind. Pilots are fre quently upon duty at the wheel, whoss dissipated man ner of living renders it impossible for them to have the free exercise of all their physical strength and mental faculties : yet, they are employed because they turn in for a smaller amount of wages, an. the consequence is that accidents attends their labors, while passengers are delayed, wounded, frightened and killed. I think that Congress should pay some attention to these things, and require a certain amount of tuition as well as moral char acterfrom these important officers, beiors they are al lowed to stand alone at the wheel. A little action about ?uch important matters as these would do the roanmum tv a far greater benefit than all tbe brawling about Ore gon, and other nonsensical things eternally echoing there.

Does it do more than declare the law to be as it now is, in fact?that a wife's property may be settled on herself and chil dren, through trustees 1 Tins is a subject of thq greatest importance, and, with your permission, I will add a few other queries. Throughout the discussion of it, that the wives aione have property, seems to be assumed. Suppose it in the husband that is rich, and the wife has nothing i is she to be deprived of her dower or jointure 1 If she is to hold her property to the exclusion of her husband, why should he not hold his in the same way 1 Should the huaband be excluded from the income as well as the principal ol the wife's estate 1 It so, how is he to " bear rule in his own house," regulate its expenses, or govern even the domestics'! Is not the marriage contract one of burdens, disa bilities and dutieB. to the huaband, and should then not be corresponding rights, powers and advanta ges 1 Where there are no children, should even the collateral heirs of the wife be preferred to the hua band, for whom the bible commands her to leave both father and mother 1 In giving married women property independent of, ana separate from their husbands, will not matrimony degenerate into con cubinage, and discord, confusion, litigatiou and meddling, take the plpce of unity, |>eace, aiiection, and happiness!
