THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3.
Thz uuoject of a supply of water for the town
of Honolulu is becoming of more importance
every month. Tliat the supply is not adequate
to the demand is evident. "We are informed that
a large number of persons, foreigners and na
tives, are now anxious to obtain water from the
valley pipes, but are unable to do so, owing to
the capacity of the pipes being now exceeded,
and some who pay their rates of $25 per annum
do not obtain at all times what their necessities re
quire. It is not at all unlikely that were a larger
supply obtained, and pipes laid through every
street where water is wanted, that over lour nun
dred taps would be made. The complaints in re
gard to the water naturally fall on the govern
ment, as being the proprietor of the water works.
In late numbers of the Polynesian we have no
ticed advertisements in regard to the water, in
tended to regulate o.- check the supply of it.
But this is the wrong way to rem'edy the evil that
exists. The only mode in which it can be cor
rected is to increase the supply. Thiscan be done
only by laying down new pipes to one or more
fountains or streams, and if necessary, construct
in" a suitable reservoir. Twelve months ago we
dwelt at length on the same subject, and urged
the government to take active steps in the matter.
Had there been even a moderate zeal shown in
ministering t the wants of the eojile we should
before this have had a full supply. The water is
there, in abundant and exhaustless streams, run
nins to the bea. And as for the means to nuke
the improvement, there can be no doubt that it
can be obtained, -if sought.
" It is 6tated, on good authority, that there are
parties ready to advance whatever sums may be
needed to enlarge the water works, provided the
proceeds of the works are pledged in payment of
the interest and principal. This certainly would
be a fair and business-like mode of having the
improvement executed, provided the government
has not the necessary funds to carry it on itselt.
It is not so much the want of wa3s and means to
carry out these improvements, as the utter ineffi
ciency of ne responsible head of the Pepartinent
of Public Works. Honolulu might to-day be
"bountifully furnished with an exhaustless supply
of water had this matter been taken up twelve
months ago, when it was called for. But here it
lies in the same state it then was, and may con
tinue to do so for months and perhaps yea to
come, unless more efficiency is secured in carrying
on the public works.
That the government is the proper party to
undertake works of public improvement, where
possessed of ample means to make such works
with the greatest despatch and at the cheapest
cost, all will agree ; but, embarrassed as the gov
ernment has been for years, it doubtless would
have been better for it and for the public had it
accepted the offer made to it, we believe, some
years ago by private individuals, to su pply Hono
lulu with the water wanted. A chartered com
pany would probably have done the work more
efficiently, and relieved the government from the
opprobrium thrown on it, solely from the inac
tivity of its officers or the straitness of its re
sources. . There are so many improvements needed in con
nection with the water works that it appears
almost needless to point out any of them until
some purpose is manifested on the part of the
government to lurtner tne woric. in ineaosenoe
of insurance faci'ities, or the rates being higher
than most property holders can well afford, it is
the duty of citizens to urge the government,
who alone claims the right to act in the prem
ises, to provide more water reservoirs than now
exist. They should be scattered so as to be made
available in every fire. These reservoirs would be
tho best safeguard that could be provided against
extensive conflagrations. A capacious water tank
at the wharf, where the water-house now is, and
also one at the newly-constructed pier on what
should now be called " the point," would facili
tate the supplying of water to ships in the fall.
If the supply of water is increased, it would be
no very cxpens ire mutter tq have a fountain in
the proposed court-house park, to be allowed to
play only when water ia abundant or would
otherwise be wasted by running to the sea.
The introduction of valley water has made a
vast change in improving the aspec of the town.
The houses are now in many instances surrounded
with gardens and trees, which owe their life in a
great measure to it. The healthiness of the place
has also been much improved by it. These
changes would be still more marked with an abun
dant supply, and in less than ten years Honolulu
would be surrounded by and embedded in a for
est of trees, which, as we all know, would exert
a great change in the temperature of the atmos
phere, rendering it a more attractive and healthy
But we have no hope of any amend in this or
other matters of vital interest to the prosperity of
our town and country, until a radical change
takes place in the administration of the several
ministerial departments of the kingdom a matter
which is quietly but surely waking up the people
to a sense of their just rights.
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Hosoixuj RirxEs Target Practice. This crack
corps of citizen soldiery, under the command of Lieut.
Commanding J. II. Brown, turned oat on Monday
last, leaving their armory at 3J o'clock P. M., and
marched to Waikiki, for the purpose of trying their
new Minnie rifles in target practice. They numbered
40 guns, and, as they marched through the streets,
their soldiery discipline and appearance, although in
semi-fatigue dress, elicited remarks of warmest admi
ration from the lookers on. On arrival at the ground
selected for trial of skill, which was near the beach,
about midway between the town and Diamond Head,
the members found a numerous concourse of specta
tors to witness their virgin attempt; among whom
was His Majesty, IL C IL Prince Kamehameha, Gen.
Commanding the Forces, and a large number of our
first citizens who did not belong to the corps. The
firing was excellent, the distance 200 measured yards,
the target 7 feet by 5 feet; and out of 12o shots 57
hit the board. . The best shot made was by Private
F. S. Pratt of Color Guard, and to whom belongs the
prize of $2o generously offered by J. T. Water
house. We hear the customary honorary tin medal
was presented on Tuesday morning to Orderly Ser
geant F. L. Jones, which was received by him in
his usual urb&ne manner, - recognizing the pre
scriptive right of a company to its usual fun on such
occasions. The firing was continued till after dark,
when the company fell into rank, firing a feu de
joie opposite the palace, with the most astonishing
precision, and were dismissed at their armory at
about half-past 8 P. M. We have no doubt frequent
trials of this nature will render them as efficient with
their ri'!S as the companies of citizen soldiers of older
countries. nnilerxtand that they will practice
ain at target exereise on Monday next. ' ' l .
Mails. Some uncertainty exists again in regard
to the arrival of the mails, and it will continue,
long as our advices from the coast remain as now,
semi-occasional. It is thought that a ship may touch
at Lahaina dorimr next week and leave the mail.
it is not received before the 12th, the Yankee will
probably bring two mails again. She may be looked
for about the 20th. Four vessels which arrived from
San Francisco last year in August &nd Septembei
mmrnl in thair nasaAffes twelve davs each. The
brie Advance will be due here after Sunday next
and possibly may bring us two weeks later advices
from the East. "
t-nnniv A vnnirw Jr. The notice of the death of
this young man will be read with universal regret
throughout these islands. He had recently returned
from the United States, where he contracted the
disease which cut him off. Since his return from the
States, more especially, he gave promise of a life of
usefulness anion" us. and appeared qualified for any
duties that might be required of him. lie was a raoat
excellent Ilawauan scholar,-and we believe it was nis
purpose to devotehimself to the legal profession, to
which he aDoeared neculiarlv adapted. He was an
.. X .
active member of the order of Masons and Odd Fel
lows, both of which Societies followed his remains to
Lahaix a. Our oo temporary is very unfortunate
in timing the laudations which he occasionally gives
utterance to. Lahaina is a rery moral place we au
know, but when the Polynesian begins to boast of it
it ia too much. Besides the two cases which appear by
our correspondent to have engaged the attention of
the police and court of that town, we hear verbally that
during last week an attempt was made by a native
woman to commit suicide bv hansrinir herself But
ha zing been discovered, by her neighbors, the rope
was cut before any more serious result Happened tnan
the conviction of the female that it was not a very
agreeable mode of putting an end to her trouDies.
Silver Ciiaxgk. Small change has been very
scarce of late. The amount in the country cannot be
much if any less, we should judge, than for the past
few years, but it would seem to have worked itself
out of the way. Now that Mexican and Spanish coins
are disappearing from currency in the United States,
they ought to be more abundant here. Nothing,
however, could be of greater convenience than the
introduction and use of the American dime and half
dime, if the prejudice of the natives against them
could only be surmounted. By some united action
of the merchants, it is possible that these coins could
soon be brought into use.
Market Wharf-. We learn from the Superinten
dant of Public Works that this wharf is soon to be
replaced by a solid stone pier, filled in with dirt and
surrounded with piles. It will be carried out about
twenty-five feet so as to cover the rock at its edge.
This ought to have been done some months ago, but
it had better be done now than not at all, although
we are just entering the season when it is most need
ed. The wharf, as it now is, is hardly fit for use.
Notice for tenders for the work will be found in
Water Task. Private enterprise will always dis
tance corporate bodies, when placed side by side.
This accounts for the construction of a substantial
water-tank on the dock, which is generally supposed
to belong to the corporation. But it is not so; ft has
been erected solely at the expense of Mr, Quinlan,
for the use of his water boat, which during last sea
Bon proved itself one of the greatest conveniences
about the harbor. Success to him.
Whalers Reported. Advices from Kawaihae
received on Saturday last, state that two whaleships
are at Kealakeakua. The report was received at
Kawaihae by a native boat from down the coast It ia
possible that a southern whaler or a French ship may
have put in there, unable to make the windward
port of Hilo, but it 'is improbable that a whaler from
the North would pass by the other ports to enter
Kealakeakua, We shall have definite advices from
that port about Sunday next.
Asglo-Hawaiias. It is amusing to notice the
mistakes sometimes made by Hawaiians speaking the
English language. In the former the letters and r
have the same sound, or at least Hawaiians cannot
perceive the difference. This gives rise occasionally
to some blunders, equaling the richest Irish bulls.
A steward, in 4sef to the inquiry what was to fol
low the meats replied, " Biled lice, sir". a dessert
wholly unlocked for, which put the table in an uproar,
much to the discomfort of the Hawaiian, who could
not perceive any good cause for the commotion.
Strawberry Plasts. Mr. nolstein, gardener to
His Majesty, informs us that he will next week com
mence cleaning out the fine strawberry beds at the
King's country seat in Nuuanu Valley, formerly in
the possession of Capt Makee. These plants are said
to be of the finest imported varieties, and Mr. II. will
take pleasure in supplying any permms who may wish
to obtain the plants, which are rooted up and will
otherwise be thrown away.
E?" On our last page we publish part of a very
interesting article describing the olfice of the New
York Herald. In the magazine from which we copy,
the description is accompanied with illustrations of
all the various rooms and presses described, which of
course we cannot give. The press on which the Her
ald is now printed, prints 24,000 copies per hour,
and in four hours the daily edition of 85,000 copies is
struck off. .
J5r'" The funeral of His Excellency the late John
Young took place on Sunday afternoon last, as adver
tised. The services were conducted at the late resi
dence of the deceased, by Rev. A. Bishop. The re
mains were escorted with military parade to the Royal
tomb, where they were deposited.
Almost Drowsed. A little girl, about two" years
of age,daughter of Mrs. Fish, was nearly drowned at
Lahaina a few days ago. On being missed, search
was made and it was found floating in a taro pond.
When taken from the water, life was nearly extinct,
but by the application of remedies, life was restored
to the child. ,
A Kiss. Children frequently get off some wise
remarks, without any apparent effort A contributor
sends us the following crumb said to have fallen from
the lips of a precocious urchin, with whom we can
hardly judge it to be original : " Pa, Of what shape is
a kiss? Give it up? Why, elliptical, of course."
(A lip tickle.)
Despatch. The fine packet L. P. Foster which
came into port on the 26th, commenced unloading on
Thursday morning, discharged 160,000 feel of lum
ber in seventeen working hours, ballasted and sailed
again ou the 81st Great credit is due for this unu
sual despatch to Messrs. Hackfeld & Co., who are
agents for this line.
, Attempted Thttt. The store of Capt Berrill, in
Nuuanu, was entered on Friday afternoon by a fast
native, well known in that neighborhood, who at
tempted to rob the money drawer,- in which act he
was discovered, and was on Tuesday sentenced to
sixty days, as he deserved.
Hoapili Place. These premises, which are among
the finest located in Lahaina, and now the property
of Prince Lot, have recently been thoroughly repair
ed. They will be occupied by the Hon. -fjG- Chan
dler, U. S. Consul. I
Avrcnos Sale. We would call attentionCo the ex
tensive sale of merchandise recently received by the
Harriet tf Jeuie from Boston. The sale commences
at half-past nine this morning at the store of. B. W.
Field, Esq. ' .
Q The showers Of the past few days have been
very refreshing, but are quite unusual for September.
As a general thing, rain has been plenty all over this
island since January last .
7 We would call the attention of those interested
in shipping oil, and bone to the United States to the
notices of the ships Harriet $ Jeuie and Kameka
vieha IV -both A. 1 vessels. .
fr : :
Cummo Cattle, from the sohooner Mary, fre
quently affords rich sport to lookers on. On Satur
day last, some of the wildest specimens of Hawaiian
bullock were hoisted out of the vessels hold, and
they touched terra firms, and kicked themselves from
the sling, 'snorted around the pen with a fury which
nothing but the horsemen stationed around could
.restrain. But one sleek heifer, a little wilder than
the rest, bolted the enclosure and headed for an
amateur vaquero, who galloped for Maunakflika, as
fast as his fleet beast could carry him, and with the
juvenile taurus close at his heels. Nothing but the
lasso of an expert rider brought the wild heifer to.
Another person standing carelessly on the rail enclos
ing the herd, had his rail knocked from under him
by a bullock, and was shown how easily a man can
sometimes be frightened without being seriously hurt
G?" A valuable suggestion to house-keepers will be
found on the first page, headed " Simple water cool
er." The flower pots alluded to can be had here, we
presume. Who's got them ?
Correspondence of the Pacific Com. Advertiser.
u Rusticus expectat dum defluat amnis s at ille labitur et
labetur, in omite volubilis oevura."
Sir : An alarming advertisement appears in the
Polynesian of the 29th ult, headed Water I Water
and signed H. J. H. Holdsworth, shewing a deter
mination to keep the river supplied, though the town
should get parched. It proposes, by way of prevent-
ing waste, to direct to Vie sea, all the water which
some persons are using to fill their casks, baths, &c
with during the night and some people go so far as
to use for the cultivation of flowers and shrubs, which
as all their neighbors are not fortunate enough to
glory in, it is thought better to let run away.
It is well known that the broken cistern will hold
no water, and whatever is not made use of as it flows
must go to waste ; and for this purpose a constable is
appointed to visit the taps and allow no use to be
made after eight o'clock in the evening, of all the water
which, not being retained in the cistern, must pass
awaj to dilute the salt sea. The advertisement does
not say whether all houses not provided with a ball

no drinking shall go on, until the unnamed hour in

night's repose, will have retired to his breakfast, and
permitted honest citizens to draw a little water for
- The note appended however states " that if every
house provides a cask with a ball tap attached to
the end of the pipe, they will be able to have it filled
during the night" I quote this note in extenso, as
a sample of Hawaiian English. I was inclined, from
reading this advertisement, to believe it was only the
gardens against which the anathema had gone Cxrtl
but for this passage, which is like a lady's postscrip
I presume tbe houses are also in the same catagory.
I would, if possible to be serious, ask, if one drop of
water is retained in the cistern opposite Mr. Bates
which, being kept during the night, wonld increase
the pressure and give additional supply next day ;
but, if not, would like to see the advantage to be
gained by making sure that no person derived any
benefit from it
A wiser course might be to repair the bottomless
pit, and preserve the water during the night, and
thus increase the supply. And if any rational effort
were to be made to improve the mode of using and
assessing parties who use the water, there is ample
scope for some ingenuity which might be more profit
able that the advertisement holds out
Would it not be an improvement, while the supply
is scarce, (which it need not be) to allow certain dis
tricts the use of the water for some hours, shutting
it off from others, and thus giving each locality time
to fill their vessels, or otherwise m nge to make the
most of the supply ? Could there n t be some reform
in the mode of charging for the water ? Say a half-
inch pipe so much for a certain number of hours
and every larger size a proportional increase, making
each person pay in proportion to the supply. As it
is now, a small family of three or four persons pays
as much as the largest ; and, if I am not mistaken,
the same as a hotel using twenty times the quantity.
But. unless by the improvement of the breed of
fishes, or some other way, it can be proved useful, I
would certainly cut off the supply which the adver
tisement means to reserve for old Neptune.
Honolulu, Aug.' 2 1th, 1857.
Mr. Editor : In some of your late issues you have
spoken of the appointment of a Minister of Finance,
I tbintit well that there should be a head to that
Department, if the right man can be had. All who
desire the prosperity of the Government wish to see
men filling its posts who have the varied abilities
required for their several positions; and we have
amongst us the right man, and doubtless the best
one for all the duties of the Finance Department It
is Dr. G. P. Judd. There are two reasons why he
should be appointed :
first It is due to him for various reasons which
I will not name; provided always that he can dis
charge the duties of his post as well as another.
Secondly There is probably no one amongst us
who is so well qualified in all respects for the success
ful administration of the Finance Department as Dr.
Judd. His thorough knowledge of the native lan
guage and character, and his long, and successful
experience of eleven years in this very department
are qualification which from, circumstances, no
other one possesses. In the spring of 1842, just be
fore Mr. Richards left for Europe, he took charge of
the financial affairs of the Government He found it
embarrassed and harassed, without revenue, though
With sources of income front which a regular revenue
could be derived if properly managed. He systema
tized the business, economized and husbanded the
resources of the Government, and in a very brief
period of time, liquidated its debts and established its
He built the wharves, the Custom House, the Court
House, and the Market He labored with an energy
and devotedness to the interests of the kingdom rarely
to be found. I heard our lamented and respected
fellow resident, Capt John Dominis, say that " no
other man could have done what Dr. Judd did for
the kingdom." His long intercourse with chiefs and
people, his knowledge of their language and resources,
and possession of their confidence, were qualifications
which circumstances had given to him and not to
In 1844 he was joined by Mr. Ricord, in 1845 by
Mr. Wyllie and Mr. Richards also returned the same
year, in 1846 by Judge Lee, and in 1847 by Mr.
Armstrong. To all of these gentlemen great credit is
due for the aiding hand, in giving form and efficiency
to the Governmental organization. And in the Ju
dicial Department especially, to Mr. Record, and
the universally beloved and lamented Chief Justice
Lee; to each in their several Departments. But
from 1842 to 1844, Dr. Judd was alone and during
this period, I believe, the debt was extinguished,
and financial matters j laced upon a favorable basis.
One, who favored iue popular movement, which
resulted in Dr. J udd's dismission in 1853, and who
has more cause perhaps . for personal dissatisfaction
with him than any other individual, recently said to
me, that " he managed the financial department ably
and well." Many who joined in that movement'
would not be sorry to see him back. Like all men,
he has his imperfections, made more conspicuous in
public than private life, but with them all, not a few
doubtless feel that he is the one for tho vacant post if
he will accept of which I know nothing not having
heard him speak of it, since his dismissal in 1853
but it should as many think be tendered to him
and who also think the public good would be pro
moted by his acceptance.
Sir: While our Agricultural Society is very laud
ably making efforts to improve the fruits of the

would suggest importing the rtl from Tahiti, which
abounds in all the streams and kalo patches there.
They devour shrimps j but shrimps, small and large,
are yet in great abundance tl ei e, far more so than
here. Some time ago, the French government broke
two largo casks of rum on tbo banks of the stream,
and the contents went into the water, and though
only a few hundred yards from the harbor, a hun
dred or more eels, of all BixBS, sprang upon the banks
and were taken by the uatives. Some of them have
been taken by the hook in the streams, known to mea
sure a fathom in length and the size of the largest
human arm. This fish with the crab are among the
interdicted articles of food to the Jews, and though
not so wholesome as the fish with fins and scales, they
are highly valued by ' : -,"-dflr- The Tabitian eel
Is altogether of another epocies from tEe tea eel, being
without the infinitive hair bones which intersect the
flesh of the latter. The writer entrusted to s very
careful friend at Tahiti the collection of a number in
a barrel, to be bored at the bottom, in order to drain
slowly the water thrown in upon a body of weed
stalks, sand, and other substances. This barrel he
supplied daring the reesel's absence for two months
with several dozen of eels, feeding them daily jwith
fresh water and other ropplieav . He found the num
ber every day lessen, and flunking they were stolen
at night, purchased others. But they had no doubt
devoured one another for want of enough to eat ,1
On the brig sailing for Oahu, he found but twelve
remaining and sent the barrel on board, where a pas
. senger bound for the islands had consented to see them
' fed with scraps of biscuit, &c, from the table's
leavings, and with daily water. But an accident kept
him below, and from want of attention all died before
- If the fallible agencies at command would allow,

A writer in Hunt's Magazine suggests a new plan
of extinguishing fires, worthy certainly of a trial. It
is Bimply saturating the water of the fire engine with

wood so that the flame cannot spread any further, L
e., the muriatic acid flics off and the soda remains as
upon a glazed surface. - The suggestor of this idea
even goes on to say that many a fare, which is within

Louis Napoleon is in no little trouble about the
existimce of certain secret societies ni France. A num
ber of attempts have been made to take the Emperor s
life, and ifJis believed that the assassins were the
emissaries of the secret organizations. Pianori, who
was not ln& since arvuted, admitted that there was
a secret society in France, the sworn object of whose
members was to assassinate tSte Emperor. But he
died without revealing the names of any of the mem
Irbers, or of divulging any secret that would lead to
I . - , i ..i i c . i t. a.1
their detection. It is an admitted fact that there is
such a secret organization in Paris. It has members
in Pari!, in Vienna, in London, and in other cities
upon the Continent The police of Paris have definite
instructions to hunt down this organization, and they
exert every effort to detect its secret meetings. So
far no developments have been made that have led to
the conviction of any concerned.
A great historical personage has just died in Paris,
the famous Vidocq, who, from one of the most expert
thieves in Europe, was promoted to the Perfect , of
Police. Vidooq, whose adventures and experience,
in both capacities, have been communicated to tbe
world in his own memoirs, retired from office many
years ago, and was succeeded by Lacour, whose
qualifications, though of a like kind, have not obtain
ed equal celebrity. The Government then resolved to
appoint a person of less questionable antecedents.
The office has since been filled by M. Carlier, now a
Conseiller d'EtaL Vidocq, who had retired with a
competence, died recently, aged 78, at his residence,
in the Rue St Pierre, Popincourt At his own
express desire, no friends were present at his fune
ral, which was attended only by hired mourners, at
the church of St Louis, in the Marais. Vidocq, a
few days before his death, had an extraordinary idea
that if his feet, already palsied with death, could
touch the earth, he would recover. In compliance
with his wish, a layer of fine mould was placed by
bis bedside. He rose with difficulty, supported by
Lis attendants, and placed his feet on it; as he did so,
a flash of life, so to speak, passed over his features,
and he drew himself up to his fidbu.hfcttt hi
strength gave way beneath the enort, and be fell
back inert and cold. From that moment he saw that
all was, over with him, and abandoning hope, he
occupied himself exclusively with his religious duties.

An amusing instance of the Pope's accessibility
took place at the Vatican a few days ago, when a lit
tle boy presented himself in the outer ante-chamber
of the apostolic apartments, and begged to be admit
ted to the presence of the Pontiff. It may be imagin
ed with what surprise thia request 'was received by
the palace servants, and how they endeavored to
make the child understand the incongruity of his
demand. Whilst the aifar was under discussion, a
cameriere segreto of his Ifoliness passed through the
ante-chamber, and having the curiosity to learn what
was fie matter, referred it, as a good joke, to the
Pope himself. Pio Nino, however, gave orders for
the child to be admitted to his presence, and having
questioned him as to tbe reason of bis wishing for an
audience, heard that the boy had an earnest desire
to Btudy, but that his parents, unable to procure him
the necessary books, always put him off with an as
surance that the Pope would buy them for him. To
effect the realization of this promise, the boy had
made the best of his way to the Vatican, and prompt
ly informed his Holiness that the works indispensable
for the prosecution of his studies would cost fifty-three
pauls. The Pope directed the cameriere segreto to
give him two dollars (20 pauls,) but the boy said
that he could not buy his books with that, so his
Holiness benevolently took out two gold coins of five
dollars each and presented them to the enraptured
child, who forthwith made towards the bookseller's
shop, followed by an officer of the Pope's household,
who had orders to observe his movements. Being
informed that the boy had really appropriated the
required money to the purchase of books, and that
he had consigned the remainder to his mother, the
Pope took interest in him, and allotted a monthly
sum for his education in the career of letters to which
he seemed so much attached. Correspondence of the

Extraordinary TsMit or Strength. The Troy
Times of the 6th recoufifesgyjgalar trial of strength
which took place in that cityon Saturday evening.
Detwecn James jutaison, tne cast-iron .aan,k! and
Professor Carl, the t strongest man in Ame
The challenge for a trial of strength, sent by Cal
having been accepted, a large assembly witnessed the
performance. Previous to the trial Prof. Carl gave
an exhibition of magic and ventriloquism, performed
his celebrated guitar and drum solo, balanced sixteen
chairs on his chin, and performed other feats calling
for an exercise of strength, whicn must have wearied
him somewhat. Mr. -Madison then appeared held
an. anvil weighing two hundred and fourteen pounds
upon his breast, while two men struck it with Bledges;
held an anvil upon each knee; broke a number of
stones with his fist; bent a bar of iron of an inch
thick by striking it over his arm; and held an anvil
weighing about two hundred pounds upon each arm,
while men struck upon it with jfldges. Prof. Carl
then appeared, held the anvil utsq his breast, bent
the bar of iron almost double txn his arm, held the
anvils upon his arm, &o., for a longer period than
Mr. Madison had done. He then took the flint stones
which had been rejected by his rival, and hammered
them to pieces, signalizing the performance by crack
ing in two a flag stone about large enough to serve as
a stepping-block for a door. After this he held out
one of the heavy anvils over his head for 41 seconds,
lifted a sixty-pound weight upon his little finger and
8wun9t around his head, and held two men on his
hair while he whirled them about, top-fiishion, until
Xheif feet stuck out at an agle of 45 degrees. . Mr.
Madison was then called out by the audience and re
quested to give an account of himself. He excused
himself by saying that his rival was in constant prac
tice while he had not broken a stone for a year. Be
ing urged to swing the weight about his head, he de
clined to do it, on the score of inability, and as Prof.
Carl had not held the advils on his knees. - In short,
he virtually acknowledged himself a "whipped man."

sympathy cornea in full play, and one feels, as he i

his call, seducing gesture can exercise. . He is not y
tall about five feet, shree inches; one finds him short,

which he keeps even when dancing.
