' 1,1 mbkk n ok of HonoLm.u ?The increased importations of lumber into this port during the pant few months, caused chiefly by the great overstock of lumber in California, has supplied one of ike chief elements of the prosperity and enterprise so evident in our city. The impetus which has been given will not be readily checked. The demand for lumber is constantly increasing, and it will continue to increase steadily in proportion to the immigration of foreignera into the kingdom. Nor will thia increase in the demand for lumber he confined wholly to the capital, or the foreign population, aa the natives begin to be convinced of the econoomy of constructing wooden houaea in place of thatched huta. The collector of this port haa favored as with the following memorandum of lumber imported during the first six months of the current year. We should judge that at leaat one-half of this lumber haa Men consumed in this city, and the remtining half haa been taken to the different porta of thia kingdom, and there are very few towns of importsnce which have not received a benefit from the lumber importation. Little, if any of it, has been or will be exported from the kingdem. Muiorandum or Hot sjts and Lt'Mbcb Impor-tkd at Honolulu, from January 1st to June 30tii, 1860, Inclusivk .?

Not. M ] A singular rue which hu been going on fc loine time ia thf price of silver has created muc nquiry. The idea that it ma* be owing to the it lux or California gold naturally occur* to ever we, and givra the subject its chief interest. 1 irdinary times the question might be easily set led; but, fiom the peculiar state of the oontinenl ogether with the change recently made in th >utch currency, a definite conclusion at present i t-ndered impossible. The three causes now in operation, namely, th ^aliiornian influx, the requirements tor the p* ind maintenance of the Irerman armies, and th ubstirution of t-ilverfor gold in Holland, have com toactive operation almost simultaneously. The ill have the same tendency; and the task, there ore, simply is, to discover the proportionate intlu nee of each. Kor this, however, the material ire wanting. We do not know with certainty th otal increase which has taken pltce in the suppl if gold, or, as regards silwr, the quuantity absorb d in Germany, or on the continent generally ither by the armies or from hoarding, or othe causes; and, even if this information were befor L we should still be ignorant of the total stook o nllioc in the world, upon the amount of whicl ilone could any accurate calculations be founded Although, however, we must thus wait unti omr ot tbe |*rplexing elements of the questioi hall have been removed?for if the war manii v? re to terminate, and the effect of the Dutch le iflaiion had passed away, we should then havt 10 difficulty in looking to California for its solu ion?there are many considerations that may ven now, throw some light upon the matter, am rhich m<y be usefully borne in mind in watchinj he future. We have remarked that nil the influences nov lifting operate in one way. The oaly direc lode in which any eflect from the California] old could firat be observed, would be by lookioi t the relative price of silver. We must measur lie state of the market for gold r>y the purcha?ini ower of that metal; and silver is the best commo ity wherewith to teat this purchasing power, as i i less liable to fluctuation than any other. In pro ilvf r will steadily become dearer?that in to say ?5 note, representing a certain weight of gold nil buy lesa silver thin previously. At theaami me the purchases of ailver by Germany and Hoi ind, mu?t, of courae, have a similar eHect. The; re made by meant, either of gold coin transmit -.1 to ua direct, or of gold due from us for crediti Mowed or thipmenta received; our merchants, 11 m* latter cate, being instructed, instead of s>*nd ig the sold that ia owing, to bend as much ailve ?it will procure. In the combined action thus going forward Dough ia conaequently presented to remove al urptiee that remarkable results should alreadi ave been -observed. There are, however, aom< lmor circumstances to be noticed which modif] best general operations, although, as it is impoa ible to estimate their aggregate hearing, it can ot be ascertained whether, on the whole, thej ave tended to mitigate or to increase the chaae< iat haa been in progress Among these, on th< >e hand, ia the demard for silver in California nd on the other, the alleged increase of produr on in the silver mines of South America, the ex naive iamie of email paper currency, bv whict Iver haa been displaced in Austria, and finally, i radual displacement of silver by gold, which ii itservable in the United States. Supposing it to be a question, whether the eftacl ' (he demand for ailver in Germany haa not been ^interacted to a very great extent by the iasue ol uatridn paper, and also if the auppliea of silver retired at ban Francisco have not been met by the ore abundant yield of the South American mines, e abould then be driven to attribute the late riae this country mainly to the Dutch operations or California, or lo both. The step adopted by Hoind, of calling in her 3 and 10 guilder pieces, took ace on the 22d of June, and the amount of gold aengaged by it haa been about four milliona ster>K As yet, however, not more than about SOO.OOO ia believed to have been replaced by ail*? ie amount of silver can be obtained.

At thia riod laM year the price of ulvrr was fa.

We before noticc the existence of se\eral cauaea operating aimu tanesualy in the Mine direction, and tendin both to lower the valne of sold and to rail that of ?ilver. The svpply of new gold no being pouied from California into the Unite Stales and into Ejgland inay be supposed to hav lowered the value of that metal; but this w? cona d? r, as yet, the least effective of the diaturbin causes relerred to There is good mason to h lieve that before the Californian aupply came int the market the consumption of gold, even in th face of the aupply from Russia, wan reducing th Mock in Europe at a rate that mutt, at no distal period, have raiaed ita value perceptibly, in spite < the continued extension of banking facilities, ri ducing the quantity of gold coin requisite to th transaction of a given amount of business. W are strongly inclined to thinh that little more ha

yet been done than to restore the equilibrium < supply and demand, though the comparitive sue dennesa of the operation?the making good of th gradual waste of twenty or thirty yeara by a nev supply, poured in during one or two yeara?has ap par? ntly thrown the balance the other way. Whi w? cannot but think of more importance in relati) to the preaent topic, are the variations incident t the effective value of such an enormous masse ! silver as that known to be circulating on the cont > nent in the ahape of coin, under any influence thi , limy act upon a considerable |iroportioii of the pei i fona in who?e hands it is chisfty accumulates ; When revolutions shake down governments, c hot-tile armies prepare for conflict. traders in th r neighborhood grasp at every coin thsy can lay hoi t of, to meet the engagements they have contracte a in the hope of continued tranquility, and must met ; in any event. Action of this kind communicate e itself rapidly to all who, though not in the itnmc % diate circle ol apprehended danger, have bee made cantiouc by pant mishnpa and experience c t the rapid transition of auch disturbances from on part of the continent to another.
