Cruise and Loss of the Hawaiian Bark
The bark ItuimU left Honolulu November 4th,
ISiO, for a cruise to tho South Sea Islands for im
migrants. Had a pleasant passago of fifteen days
to Jtiluit or lionhaui Islands. Ift Jaluit fur tho
islands of the Gilbert nnd King's Mill groups.
December 7th left the islands. December 12th
sighted the island) of Iltitaritari and Little Markin,
but did not communicate with tbe shore. I com
municated with the following different islands:
Peru, Nukunau, Ararni, Tauixna, Orwatoa, Ta
piteuea, Naoute, Ap.imatui and Maluna, get
ting sixty-one immigrants nil told. Had stormy
weather through tho groups.
January Stith, 18.S1, at .ri o'clock v. u. weighed
anchor o(I the north end of the island of Mai ana
nnd started for Tarowa at (UK) i-. m. Sighted the
island, lying off and on during the night ; wind
from the N.E. On tho 27th nt daylight Tarowa
was bearing N.K. distant fifteen miles. All of thia
day was beating to windward towards Tarowa,
Raining nothing ; wind from N. to N.E. At G p. M.
tacked ship nnd headed N.W. by W., tho island of
Maiana bearing S.E. distant seven miles, and Ta
rowa bearing N, by E. distant twelve miles. At 8
p. m. tho hark washoadiiiR N.W. by N. nnd N.N.W.
until KUV r. M. 1 left orders with thoofQcerof the
watch to tack ship at 11 r. u., mid if the wind
hauled any, to let me know. Ho tacked at 11 p. v.,
beading U.K., which course ought to have carried
the bark five miles clear of the laud. At 1.10 A. M.
of thn VSth of Jnutmry a henvy stpinll of wind nnd
mill struck tint ship. I heard tho first officer give
tho order to clow down thn topgallant sails, thn
other light sails having been previously Mow. si
away. Inn few minutes I heard him give the order
to haul tho mainsail up mid tnok ship. I knew by
tho order Hint something wns wrong, and Im
mediately jumped out of my berth and went on
deuk. At that moment tho lessel struck the Itot
toin. I looked nt thn compass nnd found
her heading H. I',. I Immediately hauled
everything haul nbnek nudtrieil to linck
her otT, but without success. Wo lay just
clonrof the brenkers nnd working brimilsldo
on. Tho wrnther was no thick nnd tlio night bo
nark that wo could sen no laud. A few minutes
Inter wo worn broadside on to tho brenkers. Tho
ship commenced striking heavily, mid the falsi!
keel coining tip nlongsld'e, Htnrted tho pumps, but
found no water in tho hold. At 'J a. it, thu hold
wns full of water, mul tho bottom of tho vessrl wns
stove iu. Wo got tho port boat down nnd clenr of
tho vessel mid had tho immigrants all iiitliocabiu.
Wo wero thou obliged to cut nway tho masts for
fearof tho bark going to pieces before daylight.
All hands wero cool nnd worked hard to save pro
visions, hut worn nut HiiCfoHsftil in saving touch,
ns tho greater pirtwas stowed I u the lower hold
ami was'tiiider water. Tho ship was touuding and
thrashing about with fearful violence. It must
have been high tide when thn bark struck, and as
tho lido went out tho breakers wero continually
breaking on deck amidships. It was not possible
to stand without holdlii-; on hard. When daylight
broko tho weather cleared n llttlo and wo found wo
wero on the reef on the southwest end of the island
of Tarowa, about one mid u half miles from land.
Ono ship's length to the north wns smooth wnter
and two ships' lengths toward tho south would
have cleared us of the reef.
We succeeded ill getting tho starboard Ixtat down
nnd tho gig otT the forward house without ntnvilig
them. Hnuled tho boats uuiUr the starboard
counter, It lteing tho least i'itoscd to tho breakers,
tho icssel being listed seaward. Wo got our im
migrants into the boats without accident. Bix of
the best of tho men I kept on board to nssiht lu
saving provisions. The crew, with tlio second
olTloor and II. ,1. Moore, our interpreter, wero work
ing the boats, nnd nfter severnl unsuccissfnl at
tempts we succeeded in getting tho bouts clear of
tho wreck, nnd I Hiding our immigriiits three
fourths of a luiln from the beach, it being low tide
at the time. Tho bolts mule severnl trips to nnd
from tho wreck during tho day, each time suiing
something. It wns raining and blowing fresh din
ing the duv. Just before dark and during a vio
lent squall of wind mid rain, tho boats left the
wieck nnd with heavy hearts wu made our way to
the shore mid made ourselvis as comfortable ns
circumstances would itormit. It was raining and
blowing and everything was s Unrated with water.
January Lllth nt daylight the boats started for
the wreck nnd succeeded iu saving u few barrels of
ment. W found that the u.itiics hid been on
board nt low tide nnd carried oil pver thing tlmt
was iHirtable th it had not been washed away. The
breakers wero so heavy that tho bo its were obliged
to leave the wreck ami return to tho shore.
January ItOth. Weither riiuy nnd mpnlly. The
bolts shitted for the wreck, but could not get on
board, tho breakers wero so heavy.
January :11st. Il was iuitossible to board tho
wreck: wind blowing hard from thu N.W. At 'J
p. M. Captain Itaudolf, of Apiiaug, nnd tho mis
sionary llniua arrived. At II r. t. tho wind was
blowing bird from S.W. The beach wns strewn
with (tortions of the wreck. At 4 p. m. I author
ized my first officer to sell tho wreck of the bark
Hiimn'l at public auction ns sho lay on the ri ef. for
the iK-nefit of whom it in ly concern. Tim wieck
wns knocked down to Captain Itaudolf for thu sum
of :ki, ho being the highest bidder.
Februiry lL'th I bought a largo boat from Cap
tain ltiudnlf, and on the ltth 1 started her fur the
island of Jaluit iu charge of the second otllcer and
four seamen, iu hopes to intercept tint Sturm Hint.
Ho arrivrd at Jaluit on tho 21th and delivered my
letter to our commercial agent and one to Captain
Tierney. and on the 12.1th tho Sturm Hint started to
our relief, reaching us March 4th.
March fith I transferred the immigrants to the

mid she not arriving in that tune, I was to make a
cmieo through the Qilbert Islands recruiting
laborers, taking such n course as would bring mo

experienced light, variable winds, until within two
hundred miles of port, when it blew very hard for
twenty-four hours, doing some damage to sails,
but from which wo sustained no other injury, wu
reached Jaluit. On my arrival I repaired sails
nnd got ready for sen. February ISJrd, the English
bnrkeutlno Itttl Cott remrtod having seen the

Thu simo iditor a few years since protest, il

how much greater is the name olleiihit to thu

such picture as is given, nor do the eiery day
scenes of Honolulu show ou-u lit its bir-riMuus, or

that lends itsilf to such slang, fnfttu and indecent
articles should bo di nied admission tu eiery

of Hawaiian eients to bend abroad.
I know not what legal points might bear on the

tolerate such avowed mid insinuated obscenity in
