A Devil of a Row

Badly Posted. — Recently, while the people of Honolulu were anxiously looking out for news from the United States, a large clipper arrived from San Francisco, and, on being boarded by the news boat, the only reply of the Captain was, “there was a devil of a row in the United States, but he didn’t learn the particulars.”
