THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21.
It ia not often that we feel ourselves compelled
to etop and notice the course of the government
organ. ' The public look opw that journal as they
do on an insane person, with pity almost con
tempt and treat it as unworthy either their pa
tronage or support. Supported as it is almost
wholly at the public expense, and by legal stat
ute, it apparently matters little to the govern
ment what course is pursued by its conductors, if
it only stands by and defends the Ministry through
right and wrong. A spirit of insolence, bigotry
and irresponsibility always has, and always musi,
characterize a journal supported solely to defend
a Ministry. Hence, although from week to week
it finds its greatest delight in aiming to traduce
a rival publication, and seeking its defeat, as
though thai were the sole object of an annual ap
propriation of ten to twelve thousand dollars of
the public funds, we generally pass its attacks
by, viewing it as the public do, in the light of a
public nuisance, existing only by sufferance.
Without stopping for. a moment to consider
how thoroughly it is despised by the public and
how soon it would cease to be printed were the
public treasury to be closed against it even for a
week, its conductors appear to think that the
principal object for which it is established is
to viHifj and impugn, at the public expense, a
rival publication, and that they are not earning
their dally bread unless constantly bearing falso
witness against their neighbors. Like an nnwhlpt
truant schoolboy, it needs an occasional use of the
birch to bring it to a sense of responsibility. The
Commercial serves as its " harp of a thousand
strings," on which to vary its weekly tune, now
blowing high, now low, till the community are dis
gusted with its course and with the government that
continues to indulge the morbid fancies of a treasury-paid
editor. And altboagh the Ministers may
not be advised: of all it publishes, yet on them
must rert the responsibility of a journal issued
at their control, and the odium created by the in
dLscreetness of those who may have the immediate
charge of it.
Last week we published, in advance of the official
journal, a statement of the finances of the govern
ment, acknowledging the favor we had received
from the Registrar of Public Accounts, in' brief
terms, to be sure, as the report was only furnished
to us at a late hour and was inserted by the ex
clusion of matter already in type. But because
we printed it first and did not devote a column in
adulation of the Minister of Finance, or did not
find fault with his official course, we must be
accused of a want of courtesy in our remarks, as
the following will show :
"Tbe readiness aad courtesy with which the Minister of Fi
nance fnrniches official dncoments and pobbe account to the
prcaa, wbeaever in his Jodrment so doing will subserve the pub
lic interest, wit boot parti lily and without favor, might have de
served a pasting notice fmco so great a stickler for publicity as
our cotemporary. But let that pars. If it does not know the
manners of the drawing room, it knows at least the way to the
kitchen and can patronise the cook."
That we pursued the only proper course, in ac
knowledging the favor from Mr. McCoughtry,
(who may have furnished it at the order of the
Minister of the Treasury,) will be seen by the
following note which accompanied the statistics :
llawtnaJl Taaasrar, i
Korroa CoxataxxiL Asrcartsza : I enclose herewith, for
publication, a statement of tb Receipts and Expenditures of the
Hawaiian Treasury frosa April 1st, 1S&8, ta Feb. lftth,lft9, and
I aaa, very respectfully,
your BMSt obi aervX
II. W. McCorcwrsr,
Registrar PubEe Accounts.
From this statement of facts, it would appear
that the government editor is the one who needs
to be taught his manners. " But let that pass.-'
In regard to the impartiality shown this jour
nal, no one knows better than the editor of the
government organ that, previous to the publication
of the statistics which appeared in last week's
paper, referred to in the above note, the only ones
that this journal has been able to obtain and
publish from the government offices (customs and
shipping data alone excepted have been procured
solely by copying from the government journal ;
that the editor of that joarrAl has alway had
access to and obtained government statistics when
sought ; and he might have learned further, with
out much trouble, that when the publisher of
this journal on one occasion sought statistics from
the Finance Office, he was coolly rebuffed with a
reply which amounted almost to insult, from the
then Acting Min'T of Finance, and that since
that time we have not troubled the Minister for
statistics, but Lave generally published them
after they hare appeared in the Polynesian.
We have alluded to this subject much against
oar will, for we then considered, and still
think, that the refusal was injudiciously made,
but with no ill motives ; nor should we have felt
called upon to allude to it now, bad not the gov
eminent editor asserted that ' official documents
and public accounts" are furnished " without
partiality and without favor, thereby imply
ing that it has invariably been done, which is a
perversion of tho truth. For what we have re
ceived in this first instance, we tender our thanks,
to whomsoever they may belong, be it the Min
ister of Finance or Registrar of Public Accounts,
and trust tliat this journal may in future receive
at least an equal partiality and favor and
that the government editor in his comments will
stick a little nearer to the truth.
About on a par with the above ia the para
graph which follows it :
rOas exhibit ae

ally aad the biicretary at ar issiraai j r
The government journal overlooks the feet or
is unwilling to acknowledge that the " balance
on hand' ' is found in the treasury in part through
the good oCces of this journal in opposing the ex
travagance and waste of the Secretary at War,
who was squandering, when this journal was es
tablished, at the rate of $40,000, and demanding
no less than $60,000 per annum to meet his war
like ideas. Look now at the statistics published
on our last page and see the difference. It reads
Department of War, $12,698 showing an
expenditure at the rate of about $15,000 a year
against about $40,000 in 1855, and showing far
ther, most satisfactorily, that the service can be
done for about $15,000, for which three times
the amount was demanded. This is merely one
item in which the influence of this journal for
good has been felt in the public finances, and
" bearing these things in mind,' the Polynesian
" must feel terribly nnalV if it ever acknowledges
the truth a thing we have ceased to expect from
a journal whose only object appears to be to per
vert the truth at the public expense.
-' But we come now to a more serious point in
the false statements of the ministerial organ.. It
says of the Commercial:
n has tried hard enoorh to break down the credit of the
j if rinuent abuse and aasiepresf nfarinn could do
The above, whether written at the instance of
either of the Ministers or only on the responsibil
ity of an irresponsible editor of the government
journal, we pronounce to be an unqualified false
hood, and that the person who wrote it knew it
to be such when he penned it. And we further
defy either of His Majesty's Ministers (for they
alone are responsible for the above statement) to
produce one paragraph or one line in which this
paper has sought to " break down the credit of
this government." That we have sought to cor
rect the errors and follies of Ministers that we
have fearlessly pointed out the results that would
follow such a course as we condemned, we freely
acknowledge. And the public wish no better
evidence that our course in seeking retrenchment
in public expenditures, and particularly in con
demning the extravagance of the Secretary at
War, has been attended with good results, than
the fact now made apparent to them that there
is a cash balance of $31,653 19 remaining in the
public treasury. The assertion that this journal
has sought ' to break down the credit of the gov
ernment,' we repeat, is a most unqualified false
hood. A journal or a journalist may become so blinded
to every sense of honor or- truth as to forget even
the ordinary rules of propriety, as the ministerial
organ has in this case. But how it can have the
impudence to stand up before the community and
utter the self-rizbteous boast " never doubt a
statement tre have vouched for," in one para
graph, and an unqualified falsehood in another,
can only be accounted for by supposing that there
is a mysterious power imparted to those who feed
at the public crib, blinding them to all sense of
self respect. The services of such a journal will
no doubt be always deemed indifpensible to sup
port the Ministry, which encourages such attacks;
and we will wager an old hat that some post of
profit will always be found open to reward such
As we said at the commencement of this arti
cle, we seldom notice the attacks made on us by
the government organ, as the publication is very
little read or noticed anywhere, out of the office
in which it is printed. . But when it becomes so
brazened in its devotion to the Ministry, and al
lows its zeal to carry it so far as to utter absolute
falsehoods in an article on the affairs of the Fi
nance Department, (but which we trust was is
sued without the knowledge of the head of that
Department, though we are not folly satisfied
on this point,) common decency and self-respect
demand that we notice them, however reluctant
we may be to do it. 44 Ihere is a point be
yond which forbearance is a crime." If our re
marks have been severe, our readers will bear us
out, that the occasion demands severity. When
the government editor, paid from the public
funds, descends to the bar-room to pick up his
epithets, and makes bis unwarranted attacks and
abuse in street slang, though we may not return
him in his own coin, yet we stand ready to repel
his bigotry and insult, backed, as it only is,
by the patronage of the Ministry and the public
The Mail Tax Re par to.
The Polynesian makes a great splurge about a
little error which occurred in our publication of
these reports, and endeavors hard to make it ap
pear that we sought to impose on the public.
The tax statistics which appeared in our issue of
the 10th instant, were handed to us as those
of last year, 1858, and printed by us as
such, but which prove to be those of 1857.
It matters very little for what year they
may have been the statistics, as they had never
been printed, and were 44 news " as much as
those for 1853. It is somewhat amusing, how
ever, that we should have got a ride so uncere
moniously on the Polynesian's " terrapin ex
press," which we supposed was always kept for
its private use only. We correct the er
ror with pleasure, and further publish the lists
for the two last years side by side, (the latter fur
nished us by the Registrar of Public Accounts,)
that our readers on those islands may see how
they stand with the rest of mankind. '

II uo. A eoCTwapoadent writing from Hilo, says :
We are having a spell of the wildest weather 1 hate
jet seen on the islands at this time of the year. : For
the last two or three weeks it has been blowing and
raining incessantly ,'with a heavy sea and serf break
ing. Of coarse you have long sine been informed
that we are all safe, so far. from the volcano, this
side of Hawaii."
Frcn tis Te!cs ca UzzzlUi
Daring the part week, two vessels hare arrived
from Hawaii, both bringing later news from the
Volcano. By the Kalama from Kawaihae, we
learn that the lava was still flowing into the sea
at VTainanalii, though only through a duct m
derneath the cold lava. The water in the neigh
borhood was hot, and clouds of steam continued
to rise from the shore.
The account of the Kinoole Expedition is,
however, the most interesting, and we have pro
cured from Prof.-Alexander a detailed narrative,'
which will be found below. It seems that the
large crater which was in action when the KamoPs
party were visiting it, ceased about the 8th of
Feb., and three new craters were forming ' an
eighth of a mile below it. The lofty jets, oi
which the Kinoole' s party only obtained a distant
view as they approached from Kealakeakua,'
formed perhaps the finest part of the display.
It would appear from all accounts that the erup
tion is losing its force, though the amount of
lava flowing out at the latest date (the lltb) was
as great as ever. The following is the communi
cation of Prof. A :
Mr. Editor : At a time when all information
relating to the eruption is eagerly received, a
brief sketch of what the company to w hich I be
longed, saw and did, may be interesting to your
readers, particularly as we reached the source by
a route different from that taken by any other
party, excepting perhaps Mr. Vaudry. Our par
ty sailed from Honolulu on the Kinoole, on Tues
day, Feb. 1st, and landed at Kealakekua, Thurs
day noon. During the preceding night we had a
distant view of the eruption, like a star, two
third up the mountain with streaks of light
branching out below. Friday was spent in pre
parations for the jaunt, and on Saturday morn
ing we set out for the crater, from Kuapehu, in
a direction nearly east. .
The first twelve miles of our route lay through
a dense forest, which changed its appearance as
we ascended, being characterized in the lower
pirt by its tall ferns, then by the abundance of
wild raspberry bushes, and opening finally into
As we began to emerge from the woods we bad
a fine view of the jet, playing at a distance of
perhaps twenty-five miles, to the height, as we
afterwards estimated, of 300 feet. It was of a
deep red color, in form and movement exactly
like a fountain, and was accompanied by immense
columns of steam. It was soon concealed from
oar view, however, by the flanks of Mauna Loa.
About twelve miles from the coast road we reach
ed a watering place called Waiio, which we
found nearly dry.
Here we were obliged to send back our horses
and pack oxen, and proceed on foot. Our guide
then led us in a direction about E. S. E. across
a rugged tract of clinkers to a cave, eight miles
from Waiio, where we encamped for the night.
This cave had formed part of the channel of a
subterranean stream, which left a series of deep
caverns, fissures and pits to mark its course.
The pit into which Alexander Smith fell was not
two rods from our camp, being completely conceal
ed by underbrush , and from 25 to 30 feet deep. - It
was quite dark at the time, and few if any of us
suspected the existence of such a black chasm
only a few steps from our fire.
, Fortunately his fall was beard ; a lantern was
immediately brought, a boy lowered into the
cavern with a rope, and the poor fellow was soon
drawn up, insensible, but undisfigured and still
breathing. He was soon revived by the use of
brandy, and seemed perfectly rational, though
unable to move. He was carried down the next
day in a litter constructed of a bullock's hide, to
Dr. Herriek's, where he received every possible
attention. His cae, however, was a hopeless one,
for his spine had been injured just below the
neck ; and after lingering a week he expired on
the morning of tho 12th. His gentlemanly man
ners and generous disposition had already endear
ed him to our party, and the sad accident which
befell him threw a gloom over the remainder of
Daring the afternoon, the party, being in want
of water, pushed on six or eight miles S. S. E. to
a well known watering place called Puapuawai,
where they encamped. At this point the cold
was so intense at night, that a crust of ice half
an inch thick was formed in our calabashes, and
the berries around our camp were frozen hard.
As far as we could judge by the horizon, we were
about a thousand feet lower than the summit of
Hualalai, and accordingly, 8000 feet above the sea.
On account of the failure of this spring as well
as for other reasons, it was thought expedient to
divide the party. - Half of them, headed by Pres.
Beekwith, returned to Kaawaloa, and went out to
the lava flow by Gov. Adams' road.
The advance party started again directly for
the crater on Wednesday morning, consisting of
twelve white men and thirty kanakas, with a
week's provisions. During this day's march the
rarity of the atmosphere affected us all more or
less, but especially our natives, who seemed una
ble to carry their usual loads. We were slowly
ascending nearly all day. The vegetation grad
ually became more and more scanty, till it almost
About noon we crossed a recent flow, perhaps
that of 1847, and at 4, P. M., (Feb. 9.) after a
march of about twenty miles N. E., we suddenly
found the two active craters, and the lava stream
in its whole extent, immediately below us. We
encamped a mile and a half S. W. of the larger
cone, on an eminenceTommanding a fine view of
the whole eruption. Large banks of snow and
ice were found within a quarter of a mile from
our camp, so that all anxiety on the score of
water was soon dissipated.
The sight which we enjoyed that night will not
be soon forgotten by any of the party. The jet
had ceased to play, but the two craters were
blowing off enormous columns of steam, and
showers of red-hot scoria, with a noise like that
of heavy surf, or occasionally like discharges of
artillery. Half a mile below the lower crater ap
peared a cataract of fire, continued for several
miles in a winding river of light, which then di
vided into a net work of branches, "enclosing nu
merous islands. The branch towards Kawaihae
still gave a dull red light in a few spots, but the
force of the stream seemed to bq directed west,
Two new streams seemed to be running a race,
as it were, in that direction, and we could see the
forest blazing before them. The next day (10th)
was rainy, and the fog so dense that we could not
travel. We moved down a couple of miles, and
encamped on the fresh lava scream, half a mile
south of the principal cone. By the beat of the
steam cracks we boiled our coffee, roasted meat
and potatoes, and melted the snow, which our
natives had brought down in sacks, till we filled
all our water containers. During the day par
ties explored the craters.
Tho two principal cones are about quarter of a
mile apart, the npper one bearing S. . from the
other. They are about 150 feet high, and are
composed entirely of pumice and small fragments
of lava which were thrown out in a liquid state.
The upper cone was a closed crater, enclosing two
red-hot vent boles or furnaces, several feet in di
ameter, from which' it was emitting steam and
sulphurous gas, and now and then showers of
light pumice. The snflbcating gases rendered it
impawible to approach it except on th windward
side: The lower crater, from which the great jet
hrl been playii3 two days before, was somewna
larer, and a great gap was left open on the lower
siiV through which a torrent of lava had flowed
down the slope. : ?
We found a third crater, above the two we
hvn mentioned, which was still smoking, and
C fit we could trace a line of fresh lava and
scoria cones two or three miles farther up the
mountain. ; The larger cones were in the center
of a. still smoking stream,, mile wide, winch
most have flowed from a' source considerably
It was a subject of regret to the party that
they did not bare a barometer to measure the de
ration of the source, but, taking all things into
account, we think it cannot be lees than 8000
feet, and is probably nearer 10,000 feet above the
Bea. The elevation of the " heiau of Umi" is
given by Wflkes at 5000 feet, and we think the
source of the eruption is certainly 3000 or 4000
We slept on the warm laTa that night, and
early next morning revisited the lower crater, and
followed the central flow for half a mile, passing
two" or three small cones, till we reached the pres
ent outlet, to which the stream evidently has
found its way from the crater by a subterranean
channel. It was in appearance a pool of blood,
a few rods in width, boiling up like a spring, and
spouting up thick, clotted masses to theheightof
ten or twenty feet. One of our party approached:
near enough to run his pole into it. On the
lower side it poured in a cataract of molten metal
at a white heat, down a descent of about fifty
feet, with a roar like that of heavy surf. A
strong south wind was blowing, which enabled
us, by holding our hats before our faces, to get
within a few feet of the brink. The lava ap
peared almost as fluid as water, and ran with a
velocity which the eye could scarcely follow. The
solid fragments which now and then fell in disap
peared almost instantly. For several miles the
fiery river was a continuous series of rapids and
cataracts. At length we reluctantly returned to
our camp, a distance of two or three miles across
the fresh lava, "which in several places was hot
enough ta burn our sandals.
After taking our breakfast, and starting our na
tives over the old " pahoehoe" along tbe south bank
of the stream, we returned to the great cataract
The action had arreatlv increased daring the last
three hours ; the pool had become a fountain, play
to tbe height of SO feet, and the falling pieces
were fast forming a crater around it, the rim of
which was already 10 feet high, but open on tbe
lower side to afford an outlet for tbe torrent. Two
smaller jets were playing above it, which will proba
bly unite with it to form one crater. The upper one
threw np light pieces of pumice to the height of 60
feet, and was forming a very regular cone.
It was fortunately a clear day on the mountain,
and a strong wind was blowing from the southwest,
so that we travelled for three or four hours along the
very brink of the stream, without inconvenience. It
had worn fur itself a deep, well-defined channel, so that
there was no danger of any sodden change in its
course. The canal ia which it ran varied from 20 to
50 feet in width, and was 10 or 15 feet deep. But
the stream was in reality much wider than this, for
the banks on either side were undermined to a con
siderable distance. Often we met with 'openings in
the crust, through which we could see tbe rushing
torrent a few feet or even inches below our feet.
To describe the scene is impossible. Jo epithets in
the English language are adequate to the task. For
the first time we saw actual teaw aud actual rpray
of liquid lava. As its surges rolled back from the
enclosing walls of rock, they curled over and broke
like combers on the reef. Its forms, however, were
bolder and more picturesque than those of running
water, on account of its being a heavier and more
tenacious fluid. .
There was, besides, an endless variety in its forms.
Now we passed a cascade, then a whirlpool, then a
smooth, majestic river, then a series of rapids,
tossing their waves like a stormy sea; now rolling
into lurii caverns, the roofs of which were hung with
red-hot stalactites, and then under arches which it
bad thrown over itself iu sportive triumph. The
safety with which it could be approached was matter
of astonishment to us alL
After following it six or eight miles, we halted for
dinner on an island, about a quarter of a mile from
the largest fall, and then proceeded down the stream
till 4 P.M. As the descent became more gradual,
the torrent changed iu color, first to rose-color, then
to a dark, blood-red; its surface began to gather a
grayish scum, and large drifting masses became fre
quent. It now began to separate into numerous
branches, and it become . more and more unsafe to
follow the central stream, as changes were constantly
taking place, and oar retreat was liable to be cut off
at any moment We therefore kept nearer the edge
of tbe flow, and at length encamped on an island in
the woods. Daring that night the craters were very
active, and the whole plain seemed to be on fire be
low and around us.
The party were called out by four o'clock the next
morning and went up a short distance to observe a
new stream which was pouring down through the
woods to oar camp. It was a shallow flow in a high
state of fusion, and was forming smooth pahoehoe."
Its mode ot advance through the woods, girdling and
slowly consuming the trees, the surface constantly
cooling over and breaking up by turns, was exactly
the same as that observed at Hilo, and needs no de
scription. Here we were able to take oat as many
specimens in a liquid state as we wished, to insert
coins into them, and if we had carried moulds with
us, we might have forced the liquid into almost any
required Bhape. We spent the forenoon in following
the stream to the plain, partly crossing it in some
places to reach the scene of a new overflow. We had
been particularly carious to see how clinkers are form
ed, and our curiosity was new gratified. The differ
ence between "pahoehoe" or smooth lava, and "aa
or clinkers, seems to be due more to a difference in
their mode of cooling than to any other cause. The
streams which form the "pahoehoe" are compara
tively shallow, in a state of complete fusion, and cool
suddenly iu a mass. ' The "aa" streams on the other
hand, are deep, sometimes moving along in. a mass
20 feet high, with solid walls; they are less fiaid,
being fall of solid points, or centers of cooling, as
they might be called, and advance very slowly. That
is, in cooling, the "aa" stream grain like sugar.
At a distance it looks like an immense mass of half
red-hot cinders and slag from a foundry, rolling
along over and over itself, impelled by an irresistible
power from behind and beneath. That power is the
liquid at ream, almost concealed by the pile of cin
ders, which has been formed from itself ia cooling.
We beard frequent explosions, caused by the lava
penetrating caves and blowing them up. The prin
cipal stream of running lava which we saw on the
plain, was three or four miles S. E. of the ex
tremity of the Jadd Bead,' and was moving W.
by N. At this point we left the lava stream, and
descended to Umi's temple by a short cut, through
an open forest of "pahoehoe. We reached the heiau
about three P. M., and arrived at Mr. Johnson's
about eight o'clock the same evening. Tbe other
division of our party had already visited tbe flow by
way of Gov. Adams road and had returned. We
sailed again from Keauboa the following Tuesday ,and
arrived ia Honolulu Sunday morning. In future,
parties would do well to keep to the usual route as
far as the temple of Cmi, and then strike directly for
the source, through the belt of open woods by which
we descended. The distance of the source from the
heiau is twenty miles, by a very moderate calculation.
Before closing I cannot forbear to express our obli
gations to Mr. Thomas IL Paris, for the able man
ner in which he led our party, and to which its suc
cess was chiefly owing. 4 Nor' must I fail to express
our deep sense of the generosity and unbounded hos
pitality, of. our friends in South Kona, and of Cap
tains Hazard, of the Manuel Ortex, and Molteno, of
the Maria, who supplied us liberally with provis
ions, and would accept of no return.

night. The rain fell mostly in the upper part of the

nine. P. M.: the second from ten to twelve, midnight.

makine the third time that communication has been
interrupted at that point. The water rose to within
six inches of the mark of the December flood. To
wards morning, the water again came up to the same
height as at midnight. The remainder of the spars
moored above the bridge (with the exception of aa old
bowsDrit.) trot loose, some say were unfastened pur
posely by natives and came down below the bridge,
some drifting out on to the reef of the harbor. One
man says he was standing on the abutment of the
b rid re and distinctly heard the hammering caused by
knocking out the key of the chain shackle by which
the spars were anchored. It is a pity the parties
could not be found out and punished. We cannot
ascertain for a fact that the spars came in contact
with the bridge this time, bat it appears certain that
the water rose high enough to carry away the tern
porary planking without their assistance. The up
per bridge near the reservoir, which has heretofore
stood firm, has in this freahet received damage which
will require at least two thousand dollars to repair,
We understand that the attention of the proper an-
tborities was called to the state of this bridge some
time since, and to the danger which was apparent
that the next heavy rush of water would undermine it.
TwEXTT-SBCOjrD of Febxcabt. Last Tuesday, was
the one hundred and twenty-seventh anniversary of
the birth-day of " Great George, the immortal
Washington, whose memory latest ages will delight
to honor. At 8 P. M. the Consular and other flags
on shore were displayed in great profusion, our
neighbor, Cutrell of the Merchant's Exchange, with
his usual patriotism, taking the lead. We noticed
also, that Capt. T. Spencer's store on Queen street,
was connected with tbe Consul's office by a string of
flags. The shipping in port was decked fore and aft
with ensigns, jacks, pendants and signals. Conspi
cuous among these was the little United States sur
veying schooner, the Fenimore Cooper, which, from
jibboom end to the end of the main boom, displayed
all the colors of the rainbow. ' At 12 o'clock, noon, a
salute of thirteen guns was fired with great regularity
from the ' American brigantine Josephine, Capt.
Stone, followed by a similar salute from the American
whaleship Caravan, CaptBragg. We heard of a
number of dinner parties and other social gatherings
in the latter part of the day, the general observance
of which in one way and another testified that
Americans, though far from the land of their birth,
do not forget "the father of his country.".

principal streets, will proceed to their camping

will be pitched, fatigue dress put on, and the regular
routine of camp duty be gone through with. Some

A scterc w isteb. It may aoand odd to our
readers ia the Eastern states for us to speak of winter
in the Sandwich Islands, in latitude 21 north, but
the weather all over these islands daring the past
two months deserves the name. A constant succes
sion of cold, stormy weather, with copious rains has
been the experience from Rih to Kauai. At Kailua,
one of tbe dry est spots on the islands, a correspond
ent informs us that it rained constantly from the
10th to the 16th instant, aa unprecedented spell of
wet weather for that place. Capt. Bragg, of the
Caravan, says that in sailing along tbe windward
side of the islands, hundreds of silvery streams were
seea glistening in the sunshine aud tumbling down
the hill-sides into the sea.
Thk Mt. Terwos Pcrchass. By our exchanges
we see that the second payment towards the purchase
of the home of Washington had been made. Tbe two
sums paid, amount to 75,000, leaving $125,000
"till to be provided for. a large portion of which had
already been raised, and it was thought that the en
tire sum would be forthcoming by the22d February,
(last Tuesday) bo that the purchase could be closed
on that day. Says an exchange: "Tbe efforts of
tbe women of America to purchase the home of
Washington meet with the most gratifying success.
All over the country there is a suitable response to
the patriotic work. In New York the ladies are
holding fairs, and getting np tableaux and tea parties
in aid of tbe fund, and in other cities a similar spirit
is aroused. . .
, Bich. The richest sight we have seen for many a
day, and which set all Nuuaau ia a sportive mood,
was the arrest of one constable by another, who was
jogging him along the street aa enceremonioualy as
if he had been a whaleman caught in " the fact. As
the oath of a policeman is considered good evidence,
and both parties were' allowed to testify, we presume
they made out a pretty case. When Greek meets
Greek, then comes the tug of war. The captured
policeman we learn, was drunk and was disrated and
fined on Tuesday morning. - - .
Retcseo Dm. Some ten or twelve of the crew of
the HiUrnia 21, having on Tuesday morning refused
duty, were, by the order of Consul Pratt, committed
to jul, where it is to be hoped that quiet and plain
diet will bring rejection and submission to the laws
of their eoeutry. Their demand, we understand, is
to be paid for discharging the ship. ' ;
