Fourth Annual Report or the
- Sailor' Home
Prtntnltd Thursday, evening.
The Executive Committee of the Honolulu
Sailors' Home Society would offer the follow
ing report of the Society's proceedings during
the past year, being the fourth since its organ
The Treasurer has presented the state of
the Society's financial condition, and the
amount of money which has been raised to
carry forward the Society's operations. We
are most happy to leam that a much smaller
debt now rests upon the institution than at
any former period since it was opened for
hoarders. It may almost be said, that the
Home is out of debt, for the sum of S359 is
small indeed, compared with the large amount
($16,033 06) which has been raised since
the autumn of 1S54. In order to" render the
building habitable, the trustees in 1S56 in
curred a debt of $1,714 38. Besides making
some outlays, the Trustees reduced that debt
to SS74 63 one year ago. During the past
year, a still further reduction has been made,
so that now but S359 is the debt to be liquidated,
f This healthy state of our finances has not
been attained without considerable exertion
on the part of the Trustees. . About the 1st
of last February, it appeared that a -special
effort should be made to meet certain liabili
ties incurred by Mr. Thrum, the Manager of
the Establishment. Hoping that the profits
of the Shipping Office would hare been suffi
cient to hare carried forward the Home, and
left a balance, he fell encouraged to erect a
Shipping Office, and make other outlays
which would really render the Home more
convenient and usefuL Having been disap
pointed, the Trustees assumed the debt, but
being unwilling to add it to the already ex
isting debt, they came forward and generously
subscribed about $500, to which was added
other subscriptions, all amounting to S633.
This sura has been paid to Mr. Thrum.
We consider this extra subscription as
one of the surest pledges of confidence in the j
success oi the Home which, has ever been
This was the ijood and immediate result;
it retained Mr. Thrum's family in the esta
blishmentMrs. Thrum consenting to take
the boarding department of the concern en
tirely upon her own responsibility. - The
profits arising from the boarding of seamen
fell far short of being sufficient to remunerate
Mr. Thrum, when, as a Ship-Carpenter, he ,
can command his four or fire dollars per day.
These facts, in connection with others
which might be stated, already show that it
is no easy" matter to manage the " Home."
, It is no money-making concern for the man
ager, although to the boarders themselves it
may be, and doubtless is, a money-saving
establishment. Considering the accommoda
tions, and quality of food liberally furnished
for the tables, it is unquestionably the very
best and cheapest boarding-house ever opened
in Honolulu for officers and seamen. Past
. experience shows that unless the utmost vigi
lance is exercised, and the. strictest economy
! practised, it would be utterly impossible for
i the 3lanager to spread so generous a table,
and provide so bountifully for the inmates of
the Home. Keaily, the only complaint that
we have heard uttered against the Home
during the past season has been, that " Mother
1 hrum puts too much sweetening in her tea."
It is much to be hoped that the good woman
will feel encouraged to continue her connec
tion with the establishment, If the pecuniary
emolument is not sufficient to induce her to
remain, it is to be hoped a higher motive
operates upon her mind. We make the state
ment most advisedly, and knowing whereof
we affirm, that whatever cood the Home, di
rectly or indirectly, may have .accomplished,
has been mainly owing to the self-sacrificing
and self-denying, unwearried and bur
densome labors of Air. Thrum's family but
especially of Airs. Thrum. The sailor never
found a truer friend than the present Manager,
and we are most happy in the belief that she
enjoys the confidence of seamen generally.
Under her efficient management there is goin
forth an influence from the Home most be
nign and happy. Perhaps we may be mis
taken, but it is our honest conviction that a
female manager should always be at the
head of the establishment, if one of the proper
qualifications can be found. -A sailor will
listen to the advice and counsels of a Chris
tian and motherly woman, when his ears
would be deaf to the advice and counsels of
one of his own sex. lu this conviction, w i
cannot but regret that the low state of our
society s finances will not allow us to recom
mend the payment of a salary to Mrs. Thrum
for her useful and important labors amono
seamen. We are quite sure no individual in
Honolulu, or elsewhere in the Pacific, is
laboring more directly, conscientiously, or
oeneacially lor the elevation and comfort of
seamen while on shore.'
As the usefulness of the Home becomes
more and more apparent, we are glad to wit
ness a gradual crumbling away and disap
pearing of those many foolish and unfounded
prejudices which were heard and urged as
the walls of the house were seen to go up.
More than one in those days was heard to
say, " I'll not give anything to build a home
for sailors but if you'll build a good prison,
here is my subscription." Such ill-natured'
remarks are now seldom, if ever, heard. This
has been a great conquest. Some wished
well to the cause, but confidently asserted it
would never succeed. Sailors, they said
never would patronize the establishments'
Facts have proved the contrary. We do not
look upon the Home as able to remedy all
the evils under which a large seaport town
labors, but we do strenuously maintain that
our Home, and the influence which it directlv
una muirecuy nas executed, have remedied
many of the evils which formerly existed in
Honolulu. We claim that the Home, through
the high-toned and commanding influence of
its Board of Trustees, has furnished a few
simple laws and regulations for shipping and
discharging seamen, which may be regarded
as model laws. . A few years ago a shipmas
ter was annoyed almost to desperation in
shipping s crew but now it is a most simple
matter, and, comparatively devoid of trouble.
Shipping officers are under heavy bonds to
act justly and fairly. The sailor is amply
protected from imposition. His " pass" pro
tects him from fraud. The Shipmaster is
folly indemnified if his men are not forth
coming at the appointed time. To the credit
of the Port of Honolulu,' let it be published,
the sailor and the shipmaster are both treated
fairly and honorably. - The disgraceful scenes
which were formerly to be witnessed when a
crew went on board, arc among the things
that were : oucu disgraceful transactions as
we read of as occuring in other ports are not
to be witnessed in Honolulu. While many
evils still remain to be corrected, we are not
forgetful of die blessings which now abound,
and which have been produced by the erec
tion and maintenance of the Home. All is
not accomplished (hat we still hope to see
achieved. The enemy is not dead, neither,
has he left our shores. He is here in our
midst, and the friends of the sailor and the
Home must be awake, vigilant and active, or
the ground already gained will be again in
the enemy's possession! - . '
In conclusion, the Committee would merely
add that, the Reading Room, Library, and
Depository, connected with the Home, have
been open, and contributing their share to the
sailor's welfare. Not only boarders, but the
sailor boarding elsewhere, or an inmate of the
Hospital, is essentially benefitted by the esta
blishment. They resort there to read the
news, write letters home, and obtain a supply
of reading matter before going to sea.
Hoping that the Home may continue in its
career of usefulness, and enjoy the patronage
and support of both seamen and landsmen,
the undersigned would respectfully submit
the foregoing report.

The Atlantic Cable.
Complete and Intelligible History f Ike
Correspondence of the London Times.
Yalextia, Sunday, Sept. 12.
From the time of landlns the end. on the 5th
of August, to Monday, the 9th, the cable contin-
ucv in ia.ir conu'iion, inougn a sugm. aeieci, oi
no consequence in working, was observed in the
insulation. Up to that evening nothing but al
ternate p-mi five and netive currents has been
received from Newfoundland, though words and
adjustment messages had from on after the
landing been continually sent from Valentia.
That evening, however, coil currenta came with
the words Send slower and repeat," from New
foundland, being sent by Mr. Whitehouse's in
strument, and received upon his beautifully con
structed recording relay. It was noon found,
however, that Mr. Whitehouse's receiving relay,
mou-ru auiuiraoiy aaapiea ior receiving mes
sages through the cable, bad been adjusted and
constructed under the very natural belief that
the cable, If landed at all, would have suffered
little in its elecb-ical condition, and it was found
not to work wirli certainty with the compara
tively fueble signals which arrived from the
American continent. Professor Thomson's deli
cate reflecting galvanometer was accordingly sub
stituted for it, though mewages were transmitted
from both ends as usual by Mr. Whitchouwe's
Durinz the whole of the week, from Mondav
the 9th to Saturday the 14th, various adjustment
messages were received and sent through the line,
though, in consaquencc of their constantly re
quiring mesRages from Valentia to be repeated
several times, it was evident that in Newfound
land the signals were not read with the same fa
cility as thorn in the contrary direction to Valen
tia. This circumstance tended to prove that the
fault which was observable was somewhere near
the Irish coast, fur any defect more than 300
miles from either coast would affect the trans
mission and reception of signals eouallv at both
ends. Aceorlinr?lv the eahle was underrtin for
the distance of about three miles from Valentin
Island by Mr. Cannin. cut. and tested through
by Mr. Bartholomew, the electrical superintend
ent, wno iounJ that whatever fault existed was
far out to sea. The ends were accordingly joined
np again without a new piece of cable !eing laid
between Dowlas Head and the shore. From this
to Saturday, the 21st of August, the fault was
very variable both in its nature and its apparent
distance from the Irish coast, it first annearinof
someining use 6 mi miles distant, and gradually
diminishing until it became stationary at a point
calculated with great accuracy to be nearly 270
statute miles from the Valentia end of the cable.
All this period the electrical condition became
daily worse and worse, and it was only with the
greatest difficulty and by constant repetitions that
the various official and congratulatory messages
between the English and American authorities
were transmitted to Newfoundland, the messages
back from Valentia being in almost every case
clear and distinct. The condition of the wire be
came daily more faulty until the 3l8t of August,
when a (lovernment measage was transmitted
through the cable for the North American colo
nies, and on the morning of the 1st September.
a second Government message was safely trans
mitted, but after it had been duly acknowledged,
the insulation of the wires became suddenly
worse, and it was found impossible to make them
understand at Newfoundland. "Words and mes
sages were continually transmitted, but it was
soon evident that on the American shore they
could only just distinguish that signals were
being sent, for the only answer received at Valen
tia was " Repeat" and " Don't understand," and
even these small phrases were only distinguishable
at intervals : and since half past! o'clock, on the
morning ot rnday, the 4th of fceptcmber, no in
telligible signal M-hatevcr has been received.
Occasionally, however, very distinct reversals (as
regularly alternating positive and negative cur
rents are termed) have been received, sometimes
so strong and good that had they been sending
words from Nevrf jtindland, they might have been
distinctly read on the reflecting galvanometer of
iTof. Ihorason. W hen the ljne is not in use for
the purpose of testing words, short messases are
continually despatched through the wire for an
hour at a time, and then for the next hour the
galvanometer is watched fr answers, which,
excepting the reversals already alluded to, never
come, r rom the time of the Lrst cessation of the
signals up to the present time. Prof. W. Thomp
son, Mr. Varley and Mr. Edward Bright, have
been engaged night and day in testing, and have
come to the conclusion that the defect is a loss of
insulation afmut 270 miles (along the cable) from
Valentia. This, calculating the amount of slack
cable pui.I out during the later days of the sub
merging operations, would place the fault alout
220 statute miles from shore, or somewhere upon
the mountain range which divides the depth of
the Atlantic from the comparatively shallow wa
ter leading from the Irish coast. Reference to
the logs and diaries kept by those on Jvard the
Agamemnon during the submersins operations
show that this bank was crossed between 4 and
o o clock on the afternoon of the 3d of August,
moro than an hour lefore the expected time.
It has been intended by Sir Charles Brierbt to
allow a great quantity of slack cable to run out
while crowing this point, in order that it mis-lit
reach the bottom of all the inequality's which
might exist there undiscovered by the sounding
line. But, from some unexplained cause, the
Agamemnon throughout the whole cruise steamed
at a greater speed than was registered by the
log-line. Owing to this circumstance the bark
was reached at least an hour liefore the expected
time, the first intimation received by those on
lard being a sudden decrease in the registered
strain upon the dynamometer and an equally
sudden falling off in the speed of the cable, the
ship maintained the same rate, as registered by
the log-line. Sir Charles Brizht's attention was
called to the circumstance, and he, seeing at once
that tne shallow water was approaching, or had
actually oeen reached, ordered the weight to !kj
taken u the breaks, and allowed a large quantity
i eiat w: m i overooaru. it mast always
remain a matter of doubt, however, whether the
falling off of the strain on and speed of the cable
was oiwervaoie ai an until the top of the bank
nau wwi reacneu. ana mui Una been the case it is
quite possible that the cable may have
ni?lPiut.-.i pome projecting points in the
eopf ami its insulation bw-orne rrrailnallr
iDiured by itn own weisht. Thin is. nf
onlj a probaMe onjecturc, bawd nrxin the facts
above stated. But at tbe same time it in irn
powible to account in any other way for the cable

Should the fault have orir;inatl in this way not
the, least blame in attributable either to Sir
Chaxlea Bright, his aseietank, or the officers of
the Agomrmnon, the occurrence being solely re
ferable to tbe dofective and uncertain method of
attaining the peed of a ehip at prtent in
vogue m the Royal navy. The eteen range above
alluderl to is often mentioned as a slopm-v bank
upon what gronnd it is difficult tr 7..- t.,..'
two soundings were taken upon it, one at the
ttom and another at the top. and those two
founding, though only eighty miles apart, show
a difference in elevation of 74200 feet. Of the
nature of the intervening inarc nr nnn n
eourse, form any conjecture. '
nether tbe sides of this submarine m,ntn:
it can bo called nothing else are bmton L
ravines and pcrcinitous eliffj in the Rama
sides of the mountains on land are, nothing
a close and careful series of soundinrea wn
determine. That such a erie of
were not made by Commander Dayman at the
, . . .
jrmii, in question, wnen ne sounded across tne
Atlantic from the Cvd&ps. was we believe, due to
the prevalance of bad weather at the time. It
is perfectly conclusive, according to the experi
ments ot jrot. Ihomas and Mr. arley, that the
water has reached the conducting wire in at least
not less than 220 miles from the shore, and as the
currents received from Newfoundland vary from
one two-hundredth to one nine-hundredth part of
the strength they should be, it would be deceiving
the public to state that the fault is other than of
the most Serious nature. But etill it is believed
possible by some, with more delicate instruments.
and with proper concert at both ends of the line,
to work through during some part of each day,
provided the condition of the wire becomes no
worse. Negative currents of electricity are now
used as much as possible in the transmission of
signals, lor were positive currents "used the ex
posed portion of the wire by decomposing the salt
water in contact. with it, would be oxidized
through in very short time. Mr. Henley, who
has been for some days experimenting upon the
cable, is sanguine of making the line again ser
viceable, by the use of his powerful magneto-elec-
iriu luauuines, wnicn are now on uieir way iroiu
London. It is as well that every expedient for
working the line in its present defective condition
be tried, as the chances of successfully underpin
ning the cable as far as the point of injury are
unfortunately very small indeed.
