Mkhhiih. litwiN & Co. Imvu received a letter
by tlio XiabiMltu ilutod Mny 7tli, from J". D.
SpreckolH, Enq,, who writes: " Mr. Williams,
agent fur tlio Pacific Mail Company steamers
told me that lio will tclegraih to Sydney for
tlio captains of Rtoumcra not to call at Hono
lulu as tlioy would bo liable to bo quarantined
lioro 7 or 8 days."
By the noxt vessel from San Frnncihco, wo
shall probably have lato uowb from Japan,
China and tlio East Indies, aa wo aro told that
tlio Git; of Tokio was entering S.m Francisco
aB tlio Z-ubindia was leaving. Wo Bhall thcio
foro hear Bomcthing of tlio w hereabouts and
proceedings of II. M. tho King and his party,
and moreover wo aro Badly in want of iufoi illa
tion from Amoricu and Europo.
"Or tho making of books,(of travel) tboio
is no end," yet we recommend ono inoro. The
HoricM of letleiH from Mr. F. W. Damon put
together would make as loadable a book of
travels aB any wo havo over met : bright and
cheerful, obseivunt and intelligent, full of in
formation, but never pedantic. Such a book
would be an opportune addition to any library.
Tho Frifuil of tho 1st instant gives us another
interesting letter: this time from Italy nnd
The (loveriiinent immigration brig.iutino
Storm Uiril Ii.ib hauled in to the old Custom
HuiiBO wharf to relit and take in Btorcs for
another voyngo. Sho will take a number of
the Gilbert islanders, whoso timo has expiiod,
to their homes and will probably go on to the
New Hebrides or Solomon Islands for mine
immigrants. Arrangements will bo made for
quarantining the passeiigem before they leave
this port that thero may bo no possibility of
their carrying infection to tlio South Seas :
those from Oaliu are to bo kept together in.

islands in anotl er.
mistake Sir Joseph and Captain Corcoran
woro as "pwotty" as tho ladies. Parents and
children alike have to thank tho performers
for n splendid treat. On Tuesday tho picco
was again given for the benefit of tho building
fund Of tho Library and Heading Room Asso
ciation. Tho audienco was not bo numerous
ob hitherto, but what wan lacking in numbers
wan made tip in enthusiasm and tho applause
was novcr more hcrrty or bettor deserved.
Doth acting and singing, we aro told, was par
ticularly good, and called for tho approbation
of experienced critics. Only one inoro per
formance in promised, wo aro sorry to say, in
tho name of tho general public, but on behalf
of tho ladicn slid gentlemen of tho Society,
whilo thanking thorn heartily for their pains
taking unselfish efforts which wo repeat wcro
so eminently successful, wo think they aro
fully entitled to a cessation of their labors,
only temporary we hope, and we assiiro them
that they carry with them the thanks of the
wholo community for tho innocent enjoyment
provided to tho public by their talents and
conscientious rcndei ingot their partB.
We have several times called attention to
tho destruction of Hawaiian forests and ll o
necehpity of effective action to prevent our
mountains from boing entirely denuded of
trceH. Tlio santo qiieBtiou engaged attention
over forty j cars fl;o as tho following extract
from a law of 183!) will show: "All large
timber suitable for B.nving into boards is pro
hibited from being cut, except for Rawing into
bnainVi and for canoes, and whoever kindles n
fne on tho mountain, which spreads and does
damage, is li.iblo to bo put to hard labor for
two and a half years."
Tjik largo numbeis of horses now on theBo
islandH, and the number is constantly increas
ing,, consumo an immense quantity of hay,
nearly all ot wlncn is brought nere Horn unit
fin nhi, and sometimes tho price is so high
that a family horBu is an expensive luxury.
Tho raising of alfalfa for hay should prove
remunerative hero wheio theto is n constant
demand for such an article. The oxpoiiBo
and labor of cultivation is comparatively small,
while its produclivenes'i is very gieat. It is
only necessary to plow and harrow tho ground,
and bow twenty pounds of seed to tho aero,
covering it very lightly. If tho ground bo
moist no Till ther attention is required, but if
sown on diy land it is necessary to irrigate it
occasionally, flooding, where practicable, boing
tho most profrrable method. No further Rootl
ing in necessary us it will last ton or fifteen
yeais without renewing, whilo for other kinds
of hay the giound haB to bo preparod ovory
year. In some paitB of California from seven
to nine cuttings of alfalfa aro mado in onu
season, or from fifteen to twenty tons to tho
aero per annum, after it is well established.
Tho averago yio'd per aero ia eight or ton tons
yearly, and it is generally cut four or five
timet). In this climate where thero is no cold
weather in tho winter months, it should pro
duce well. Wo hoar it haB been grown suc
cessfully on the Island of Maui on a limited
scale, and also in the vicinity of Honolulu, al
though wo nave not see" .
Sinck wo last wroto our talented Pinafore
Company have given two more performances,
the first on Saturday afternoon as a ma.inco
for tho children. At tho hour appointed tho
whole parquetto and drcs circle wero filled
with expectant littlo oucs not without a good
si rinkling of "children of largor growth," tho
h tter "or tho most part of the gentler sex,
mothers and grand-mothers, sisters, cousins.
