The New Steamship.
This Wednesday, the new steamer of Foster [Poka] and company arrived; 8 days from San Francisco. “Mikahala” is its name, and it was named after the name of Mrs. J. Robinson, the wife of James [Kimo] of Pakaka. It is a large vessel like the Lilinoe, and it is speedy. We hear that it is headed for Kauai in the coming days. We do not know who the Captain is.
