THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12.
Satvrday afternoon is a feature of Honolulu
life seldom met with in any other place. Busi
ness of most kinds is closed for the week at four
o'clock, and mechanics and laborers receive their
wages. "We do not know of any other place
where this 'practice prevails so universally as
here, to the mutual satisfaction and advantage,
it may be observed, of the employer and the em
ployed. A chapter might be written upon the
moral good which is calculated to result from this
practice, but we set out to describe the afternoon
itself as it is seen in the streets of Honolulu after
"With the native portion of our population the
grand idea seems to be to have a ride, and,
mounted on horses, mules and jackasses, saddled
and bare-back, bridled or tethered, they gallop
ofT, up one street and down another, whisking
round corners, and giving the pedestrians hair
breadth escapes. If we 6tand still at the corner
of Nuuanu and King streets for a half hour, we
will see the same parties ride by three or four
times, having made the circuit of the town,, and
always at the same headlong pace, making it dan
gerous to cross the street, unless one is possessed
of the faculty of looking two ways at once. In
a very short space of time we shall here count a
thousand horsemen and women. One would
imagine it would be much pleasanter riding out
on the plains of Waikiki or at Kalihi, where the
air is fresh and free from dust. But out Hawai
ians ride to be seen and to show their skill in
horsemanship, and there are no spectators out of
town; so they continue to gallop along, the women
in showy silks and bright-colored robes, sitting
astride like the males and managing their horses
for the most part with energy and skill, until the
shades of evening put an end to their sport, or,
at some unlucky moment they . halt, when their
bridle is seized by a lynx-eyed native policeman,
and they finish one week and begin the other in
the cells of the station-house, unless some maha
vtaka (friend) steps forward and liberates them
by the payment of six dollars. It has always
been a matter of .astonishment that so few acci
dents occur on these occasions.
Here comes a group of mechanics with toil
stained clothes, but pleasant faces, jingling the
dollars in their pockets. They are Englishmen
and Americans, and in point of intelligence are
good specimens of Anglo-Saxons. How many of
them will withstand the temptations of a Satur
day night in Honolulu and wake up in the morn
ing minus headache and phis their wages, is
quite another thing. Places of resort for intel
lectual improvement, such as a reading-room, or
a lyceum, or a circulating library aro much
needed; for there is literally no society of an ele
vating nature for this class in Honolulu, and the
only alternative which many think remains for
them is an unpleasant one to contemplate.
Yonder whirls a merchant with his Boston or
New York turn-out and his imported nag. His
week's work too, is done, and bidding adieu for
a time to' whaler's bills and 10 per cents, he goes
to breathe the free air of Xuuanu or the plains.
With skill he avoids a collision in these crowded
streets, where everybody is on the rush. H-ro
are sailors out of their proper element, and full
of an improper one, with feet well home in the
stirrup, lxth hands holding on to the pommel of
the saddle as though it was the tiller of the horse,
while the latter goes blundering and shying about
everywhere. There a jabbering Chinaman with
hand-cart, won't get out of the way ; old native
woman leading her pig with the ropo stretching
half across the street ; vehicle coming along, and
will turn the wrong way; dust flying so thick
you cannot see ; these are some of the incidents
in a Saturday afternoon's rido in Honolulu. A
few years ago there might have been added to
this lint an occasional wild bullock, escaped from
the lasso,, with tail on end, madly cavorting along

in Berwickshire, England, among women-workers in
the field, when their backs become much, tired by
bowing low down while singling turnips with short
shanked hoes, to lio down with their faces to the
ground, allowing others to step across the lower part
of their backs, on the lumbar region, with one foot,
several times, nntil the pain of fatigue is removed.
Burton, in his "First Footsteps in Eittt Africa," nar
rates a very similar custom in the females who lead
the camels, on feeling fatigued, and who lie at full
length, prone, stand upon each other's backs, tramp
ling and kneading with their toes, and rise like
giants refreshed." This custom is called " jogsi" in
Africa in our country it is "straightening the
back." JVbtes and Queries.
Lest the Editor af Jbles and Queries (a very en
tertaining publication it is) should suppose that the
above mentioned " curious way to get rested" is con
fined to Berwickshire, or Africa, we will mention that
the art or custom of lomiiomi as the Ilawaiians term
it, is extensively practised by the natives of these
islands for the removal of pains, and with great suc
cess for fatigue, as many a foreigner can testify.
They not only knead the back, but each and every
joint ofthe body comes in for its share of stretching,
cracking, kneading and squeezing, until the patient
is Ctin to cry oat from the momentary pain. The
lomiiomi is besi appreciated after a long aid rough
journey on horseback, and the best operators are old
men or women. 4 . i "
The Resertobs. Our attention has been called
to the fact that tho iron covers to the reservoirs are
liable to be easily removed from their place by a
horse's foot or other matter which may hook into
them. The probability of such an occurrence and
taw mH5 into a reservoir by some evening stroller,
are perhaps remote con U agencies, bat we would in
quire whether the Department of Public Works can'
not suggest some plan by which the reservoirs may

NOTES OF TIIE WEEK.
MassaCbjc at Bligh's Lagoon. Bligh's Lagoon,
one of the circular reefs which abound in the South
Pacific, is in South lat 18, West long. 12? , and is '
generally considered as belonging' to the Paumotu
group. . We are indebted to Capt Bell, who came
passenger from Tahiti in the Einma, for the follow
ing statement of facts. About eighteen months ago
a brigantine belonging to Bremen, name unknown,
with a German captain and crew on board, together
with a French priest, and two children of a Mrs.
Stevens, of Tahiti, as passengers, sailed from Gambia
Island for Tahiti. She never arrived at the latter
place. Some time in J une last, Capt Dunham of the
schooner Julia landed on Bligh's Lagoon and found
the natives in possession of several articles of chil
dren's clothing, and wearing necklaces braided from
the hair of white men ; besides which there were rem
nants of a wreck on the reef. On this being reported
at Tahiti, the French war steamer JUclan was dis
patched to the island, but upon her approach the na
tives secreted themselves, and after burning a single
hut the steamer returned to Tahiti. Mrs. Stevens at
once chartered the Julia, and with a party of Society
Islanders proceeded to the island, where they landed,
and by means of setting fire to the pandauus trees,
which is the only vegetation there, succeeded in dri
ving the people from their hiding places and taking
prisoners sixteen out of twenty-two, which comprised
the entire population. Two were killed and four es
caped. They found the skulls of the two children,
respectively six and eight years of age, in the morae
or sacred enclosure. The wreck had been so broken
np that it could not be identified, though no doubt
existed that it was that of the missing vessel. The
natives were taken to Tahiti, and the women were in
the family of the English missionaries.
Mechanic Engine Co. No. 2. This isrjne of the
best voluntary associations of the kind in Honolulu.
The Company at present comprises a list of forty-five
active members and about fifty honorary members.
The assembly room above the engine room is very
neatly and expensively fitted up, the cost of which
has been defrayed entirely by the Company, with the
exception of a number of pictures, etc., which have
been from time to time presented to them by resi
dents. Their well-selected library consists of about
three hundred volumes of voyages and travels and a
number of scientific works. The room is always open
to the members of tho Company, and a steward is in
attendance to show attention to visitors. Such asso
ciations as this are invaluable as a means of keeping
up the tsprit du corps of the fire department, and
should be liberally encouraged. Itonolulu is liable
at any time- to need the strenuous exertions of its
firemen. While on this subject we will mention. that
the Hook and Ladder Company is. in course of effi
cient organization, numbering already some forty
members on its 'roll. At the last monthly meeting
of the Representatives of the Fire Department the
Hook and Ladder Company was formally . consti
tuted. Be.es. Among the items crowded out from our. last 1
issue was the notice of the purchase of two hives of
bees by the Agricultural Society for $100 per hive.
These with the two other hives belonging to Captain
Lawton, are placed in charge of Dr. Hillebrand in
Xuuanu. Would it not be better to send one or more
of them to the other islands and station them at
higher elevations, say at Makawao ? In New Zealand
it is only a few years since bees were introduced, yet
we are informed by captains who have recently vis
ited there that bees have multiplied so rapidly that
they are to be found in nearly every valley of the
island. They do not require any care, but build
their nests on the ground or on the sides of cliffs.
And when honey is wanted, a native will return in
an hour when sent for it with a pail full. In San
Jose, California, they increase very rapidly, and we
noticed in a late paper that one hive there had fur
nished fourteen new colonics of bees in the course of
a few months. We see no reason why the increase
here may not be as rapid.
Dismasting or thr Bark Isabeixa. The Ameri
can whaling bark Isalrlta, Capt Lyon, which left
Lahaina on the l'Jth of Octoler for a cruise off New
Zealand, returned to Honolulu on the 10th inst, un
der jury-saasts, having lost fore-topmast, with head
of foremast, inain-topgallantmast, and. mizen-top-mast,
in a " white squall," Oct 2Cth. The Isabella
had reached the latitude of 7 3 N., and was experi
encing equally weather, though not of a very severe
nature. The topgallant-sails had been clewed down
for a passing squall, and three men were sent aloft
to secure the sails, when almost instantly, and with
out any perceptible wind on deck., the spars were
wrenched olf and the vessel reduced to a dismantled
wreck. Two men, natives of these Islands, who
were aloft forward, were saved, landing in the rig
ging, but the oue on the main-topgallant yanl was
never seen after the squall. He was a native of New
Jersey, named Edwin Wilson. The Isabella will
procure new spars at this port without delay, and
sail again in a few days for a cruise on the line.
Voyage of Tire Ctnthia. No vessel that sailed
out from this port last winter elicited more general
interest than this bark, owned by Messrs. King &
M'Intyre. Although her voyage was a most unfor
tunate one, and the loss from it considerable, yet her
owners have, with true Scotch courage, determined
not to " give up the ship." Were it not that she re
quired to be wholly re-coppered, she could be sent ts
sea immediately with no great expense. When rc-cop-pcred,
she will be one of the finest whalers sailing
from this port We arc glad to learn that the ser
vices of Capt Sherman (late 1st ofiicer ofthe Japan)
and Mr. Kelly (late of the Chas. Carroll) have been
engnged for the Cynthia. We are assured by those
who are acquainted with them, that better officers
could not bo had in any whaling port.
Depabtcke of the John Land. This fine clip
per, whose cargo list we published last week, set sail
at 9 o'clock on Tuesday morning last, Nov. 10, with
a strong hrecze from the north. She was detained
three days by poor winds. We understand that lets
run high in certain quarters on her passage to New
Bedford. We can safely say that she got an excel
lent start and will probably make the run to the
equator, in four or five days and the shortest passage
to Cape Horn ever made from this port. We shall
look for her arrival in New Bedford in ninety days'
passage or about Feb. 10. As we stated last week,
she carries out the most valuable cargo ever shipped
here, amounting to 9635,556. Bills of lading of her
cargo went forward by the Fanny Jilajor's mail,
Strong Trades. Last Tuesday from morning till
midnight, " rude Boreas" had everything his own
way in aud about Honolulu, causing the ships " off
and on" to carry small saiL These strong northerly
winds must have the effect to dissipate everything like
miasma that may accumulate from the stagnant
water of taro patches, and we know that mosquitos
refrain from presenting their bills or singing their
mellifluous strains while the breeze lasts ; but the
intolerable clouds of dust in the streets (all praise to
those who sprinkle in front of their stores) makes a
return of moderate weather appreciated.
The FarEND. The November number of this jour
nal bears evidence of an improvement in matter and
style over its predecessors. - We are glad to perceive
that the Chaplain's appeal for support of the Friend
and the Bethel has been so promptly responded to.
There is no class of men more ready to give liberally
for good objects than whalemen, and whether it be
from " fellow-feeling" or whatever other source,
the foreign community of Honolulu have always
been remarkable for the same benevolent spirit -
Oil and Bone fob the U. S. For the informa
tion of masters of whaleships, who wish to send their
cargoes to the V. S. we will state that a number of
vessels are waiting at this port for oil and bone, and
probably 15,000 barrels can be shipped in addition
to what is now engaged, if applied for soon; Freights
are low, viz. 7ots- for oil, and 1 cent per lb. for bone.
The ruling prices in New Bedford, Sept l.were:
Sperm $1 30 ; Whale 71 O 72cts. ; Bone $1 80, wi'H
a tendency to higher figures. A ship need no .a
detained in port more than six days to ship hertU
and bone. - ' . -

And most other articles wanted are . in

such as the desertion of seamen ; and it is next to im
possible to procure others in their places. Ships vis
iting Auckland for the purposeof economy will be
sadly disappointed. . .
French at Lahaina. We learn from Lahaina
that some. French seamen belonging to the Caulain
court were arrested there for breaking police regula
tions, whereupon the Captain refused to pay their
fines and protested against their imprisonment It
was suggested to him to come to Honolulu and lay
his grievances before the French Consul, but he re
fused, alleging that he could get no justice here, but
that he intended to appeal to the French governor at
Tahiti. Luckily our Lahaina friends have no Fort
at present or they might run the risk of being
" taken." The affair however will no doubt blow
over without involving the waste of much foolscap or
provoking another reclamation a la Dillon.
'A Slight Check. The Ilawaiians are great
travelers. Not a vessel comes and goes between
Honolulu and the other ports of the group but counts
her native passengers by the score, and occasionally
by the hundred. But we observe a slight check has
been given to this inter-island travel by the Tax Col-

Bbio Advance. This fine brig has recently been
sold for about $4,000, and will be put on the Tan

Hawaiian Beef. It is highly gratifying to hear
shipmasters and seamen speak well of beef salted upon
the Islands. If packers succeed one or .wo years
more as they have succeeded, Hawaiian salted beef,
and even pork, will become established in the mar
ket Everything depends upon the carefulness and
fidelity of those engaged in the business. It is hardly
possible to be too careful. The importance of the
subject calls for extreme caution. A Bingle barrel
should not be allowed to go on a ship, if there is the
slightest suspicion that it is not in a good state. If
a Captain finds any barrel unfit for use, let it be re
turned to the packers or merchant Those paying
the most attention to the matter, will soon find their
brands will go, while others will lie unsold. We
have been led to make" these remarks because the
ultimate success of the whaling business out of Hono
lulu must essentially depend upon tha capabilities of
the Islands to furnish supplies for the ships, not only
vegetables, but the more substantial articles. The
prospects now are that nearly everything necessary
for fitting out ships, in the way of provisions, can be
furnished from tbe products of the Islands, viz : beef,
pork, bread, flour, potatoes, beans, &c The Foetid.
Some Music. Bayard Taylor communicates to the
Tribune the following 'account, of a musical enter
tainment which he attended in London recently :
I reached London in season to . hear the last of
Handel's orations Israel in- Egypt In the Palace
at Sydenham. ' I doubt whether aay composer, dead
or alive, has ever had such an ov&n. Two thou
sand singers and nearly three hundred instrumental
performers interpreted his choruses to an audience of
more than 17,000 persons. The coup d'teil, alone,
was sublimer than any picture. The vast amphithe
ater of singers, filling up the whole breadth of the
western transept, stretched off into space, and the
simultaneous turning of the leaves of their music
books was like the appearance of " an army with
banners," or the rustling of the wind in a mountain
forest We were so late that we could only cling to
the outskirts of the multitude below, and I was fear
ful that we should Tnot be able to hear distinctly
but I might as well have feared not hearing the
thunder In a cloud over my head. Not only was the
quarter of a mile of palace completely filled with the
waves of the chorus, in every part, but xhey spread

Sib : Ia the Polynesian of the 7th inst there
appeared two communications above the signatures
of Hope" and Q" respectively, which demand
some reply. I write not to condemn the manner in
which religion and its institutions are scandalized by
them, but merely to confute what appears to be the
drift of their argument ; that is, that the American
Missionaries here have done nothing really to ele
vate the natives ; that they have merely preached
into the Hawaiians " psalm-singing and praying,"
and have omitted to give them practical lessons in
agriculture and industrious habits."
This is the hackneyed declaration which "Q"
now intrudes upon the public in a long article, in
which he proposes a remedy for the neglect of those
who have undertaken to teach the Hawaiian race
during the last thirty years, and this week he is to
unfold a plan for the amelioration of Hawaii net an

No ; the Missionary has not been idle. Ever the

Tub American Horses Owning vp.A. writer
in the -V. Ir. Timet calls upon Americans to own up
gracefully to the recent defeats of the American
horses in England, and contends that we have no
breed of horses that can win there. He says ;
Let us see how badly we are beaten : Fisherman,
a horse of the same age as Prioress, gives us 18
pounds and then beat us ; Tournament and Cheva
lier, both 3 years old, carry the same weight as our
4 years old Prioress, and beat her ; why, had we
carried off the Sussex Plate it, would have been
nothing to brag about with our large allowance of
weight . Had Prioress carried weight for weight
with her English opponents at Goodwood, she would
never have got home at all ; even onr boasted supe
riority of bottom over our opponent's high bred
horses seems to be all fudge ; indeed, the American
horses now in England seem to be r. cranky lot, for
ever ailing. Depend upon it that we have yet to
breed the horse that can go in and win a well con
tested English race ; we have been deceived by the
time test altogether. V ,

that the master of the bark Harmony, being in Putter's Bay, in
the Ochotsk Sea, on or about the seventh day of October, A. D.
1850, discovered the American whaleship Matches ashore, dis-
being laden with a valuable cargo of oil and bone and
is, with forty-three persons on board, all exposed to destruc-
ithout assistance from the Harmony and her crew, as it
so late in the season that no other vessel was in the vicinity
and there were no inhabitants on the inclement shore where she
was aground; and that thereupon he took the said ship in tow,
and with the aid of the crew of the Hatchet, and a portion of
the crew of the Harmony, placed her several miles np the liay,
hove hard ashore, and made fast to the kedge anchor of the Har
mony, being secured in a pUue of comparative safety, where
she ramained for several mouths, and that the Harmony brought
the officers and crew of (he Tiatchez to the Port of Honolulu
hi safety, and that they are entitled to a reasonable share of the
cargo and outfits and Krtions of the wrecked ship ultimately
saved for the salvage therefor, under an agreement set forth ia

the Owner of the Harmony.
ita-oxo That sulraequently the said Libellants purchased and
fitted oat the bark Italy, from the Port of Honolulu, and dis
patched her on the 25th day of March, A. I. 1857, to Potter'a
Bay, to luok after aud save the ship Hatches, and her cargo and
outfits, and that the bark Italy and her crew did save and bring
to the Port of Honolulu all of the property above described,
where the same now is in safety, and that they are entitled to a
reasonable share of said proierty so saved for the salvage thereof.
And praying process against said property, and reason able

them such condensation, by reason of the premises, asshaH ap
pear to bit just and reasonable, together with their costs and ex.
peases, including therein the costs of Court and the legal ex
