A Fleet of Deep Water Vessels Reached Port Yesterday.  Some of Them Brought Coal From Newcastle, England, and Newcastle Australia; Some Brought General Merchandise From Antwerp; Others Brought Coke and Merchandise From Leith. While Five Carried Sugar From the Hawaiian Isles, The Bark Roderick Dhu From Hilo, Under Her New Commander, Captain Johnson, Made the Fastest Passage of the Year From the Islands.
