Mission to the Sandwich Islands.-By the last mail we have news of the safe arrival at Colon of the bishop and two clergymen, who, with their families, compose the interesting mission to the Hawaiian king- dom. They had a safe and pleasant passage by the Royal West India Mail steamer Tasmanial1, and speak highly of the kindness which was shown to them on board. They arrived at Colon, the Atlantic port of the Panama Railway, on the 6th ult., and, though the heat was oppressive, none of the party were suffering in health. The bishop was to hold a confirmation at Colon on the 7th, and the party was to cross the Isthmus the next day, the Panama Railway Company generously conveying their baggage free of charge. The Topaze frigate is expected daily at Panama, by which it is hoped the whole party will be conveyed direct to their destination. Confession of the Kirkham Murderer.- Patrick Cain, in custody on the charge of murdering Mr. Henry Rawcliffe, at Kirkham, has confessed his crime. On Friday night he called Police-constable Fletcher to him, and said he must tell the truth-he threw the poker at the deceased, but did not intend to kill him. He expressed regret for the occurrence, and added, If they only spare my life, and don't hang me, I shan't care." He said he got the poker out of Jemmy Cain's house; that he had seen it there three years. Mrs. Cain, wife of Jemmy (who is in custody for resisting the police), denies that the poker is hers, and protests that she has no knowledge of it. Michael Kilburn who was in custody as an accessory, has been released' there being no evidence against him. The condemned murderess, Catherine Wilson, who is ordered for execution on Monday, the 20th, still continues, in Newgate, the same callous indifference which has characterised her ever since she has been in custody.- She has only been visited once by a person, a female", who described herself as a friend. She appears to have no relations, as no one has visited her in that capacity. She still professes not to have heard a single word of what the gentleman (as she calls the judge) said to her in passing sentence, and appears to have no alarm at the prospect of death which awaits her. Mr. Neale, the solicitor who defended her, has sent a memorial on her behalf to the Home Secretary, but beyond that no section of the public has made a move- ment, by petition or otherwise, to obtain a commutation of the sentence.
