Depends on how your new articles are stored.  If each article
is in a separate files in a directory, just give the directory
that contains them as an argument.  If articles in a single file,
give the file as an argument.  You may need to modify the
MSGEP or MHPATTERN resources to get the proper results (see the
docs for more information).

cat /var/spool/news/chi/general/1583 | mhonarc -add -rcfile /home
/httpd/html/news/misc/xnation-l.rc -news -outdir

Reading database ...
Reading resource file: /home/httpd/html/news/misc/xnation-l.rc ...
Adding message to /home/httpd/html/news/groups/test


it archives them, and it can't find the proper subject line (it uses
soemthgin like "no subject" instead)

Check the FAQ about messages getting split.  May also be a 
symptom of improper MSGEP or MHPATTERN resource settings.
