You can either contact the Hub Team and have them manually review the Hub, or you can wait for the system to automatically rescan the Hub.
However, the system won't recognize the content here as being original until the cached copy of the first site is removed from search engines.
The cache thing is important. Copies of your blog or site pages can remain on Google "forever", even if you have deleted them from your blog or site, and interfere with your HubPage Hub status.
It is probably too late for existing pages, but on all new pages, make sure you have, in the header...
meta name="robots" content="noarchive"
meta name="googlebot" content="noarchive"
There may be other stuff in those lines, just add the above content portions.
You know, of course, to put angle brackets around each line (can't show them here as that would attempt make this comment have HTML which is not permitted by HubPages).
The only disadvantage of not letting Google archive pages is that if your server goes down, a searcher will not find your pages during that (usually) short time.

Recently Calculus-Geometry mentioned that when you change your topic category, a hub's URL changes to match it. I did not know this, so have been going back to check and realign my categories.While doing this, I noticed that I had a few articles that were very similar, so I ...
