Acchkxt. On Tue.-d ly, Keiwekihuni, a nitive
employed iu tending the centrifugals of the Sugir
Refinery, by tome carelessness had his left arm
Bevtrtd by one of theiri j-it below t he shoulder.
Only one of the natives besides the sufferer was in
the room at the time. As near as we can learn, his
attention was attracted by something outside, when
suddenly turning to his woik again, he stumbled
into one of the centrifugals when it was in motion
and m iking 1300 revolutions a minute or over '20 per
Eecoud. The rim severed his left arm nt the elbow
joint, breaking his writ in threj or four plico9.
When the machine was stopped, the arm was picked
up frou the bottom, embed Jed in the sugar. The
native walked up to the office of Dr. Guillou, where
the stump was dressed by the Doctor. The man
bore the operation of saving oil the bone ur.fliiich
in?'y refusing to take the chloroform, which f he sur
geon offered to administer. Messrs. Dirtlett and
Chitef of the Refinery were present, and rendered
all the assistance in their power. The native, after
the operation , was removed to the Queen's II- spital.
Much caution is requisite in working with thee
machine, and it should be impressed upori the na

int. and enter upon the details of this acciden, that
they may be peru-el by their readers on the pi inta

ol the report as given to us. The J. Coqqes'ajll was

that month, four (-siiien, natives of the Southern
group of islands, were attacked wi'h sma!l-pcx, fol

the first four had completely recovered, and are back

were examined, and with four exceptions had good
vaccine mirks on them. These four were vaccinated
by the Doctor, who also took oJ necessary medicines
and give the captain general directions for the treat

As the crew were &o healthy, and the diitase so
mild, the captain thought himself justified in continu

Tis:t an "t.ib!ihmeiit like J. A. Hopper's, where
everything is so neat and citnmo lious, and moves
along with such ch.ck-work precision. We were

Pkkson.il The Rev. Dr. Anderson and family, I
returned yesterday from Lahaina in the steamer. :
The Rev. Gentleman has, doling the past few weeks, !
male the entire circuit of Hiw.iii, even traveling
over the almost impassable lava streams between
Kau ami Kona. The party suffered somewhat in
passing over this tedious road. Dr. A visited several
of the mission stations oa Maui, and was present at
the annu il examination of the Lahain iluna Seminary
last week. We learn that he will proceed soon to
Kauai, returning here so as to make the four of Oahu
before the opening of the annual session of the Amer
ican Mission, June 3.
Tin: Bak. V.'e note a Ifegiri among some of the
leading lawyers rrs to their locole. I'y our adver
tising column, it wiil be seen that I). L. Gregg, Ilq.,
has moved his office from over Uishop i Co.'a IJmk,
to Commodious rooms ou lvaihunianu stri-et ; and A.
IJ. Rites, Esq., has taken the office over Cart. 15. F.
Snow, on Merchant street. R. II. Stm'cy, Ilsq , can
be found at the oflice of Mr. Gregii. We have no
doubt but that the clients of these learned "gentle
men of the robe" will find their talents as ready to
be exercised iu their behalf, at their present offices,
n they formerly did in ti.eir old quarters. Our
"Items" takes a speci il fancy to those of .Messrs.
Gregg and Stanley. That settee is o comfortable.
InrG Messrs. J. M ,tt Smith .S: Co , have tho
roughly refitted, tepiinted and fixed up in " most
gorgeous array," their "shothecary p p," oraporhe

streets. Messrs. I'hilips cc Ad ims, with their paint
brushes, hive trin.-f. ruie I Common ine Wood into

that when be walks in, an I sees if, be will inquire
where Messrs. J. M. S. cc Co., have removed their
FosTtit & Co s S:iii'yai:i. Here it is lively. We
stepied in there, the ether day, and found a schooner
of n') tons on the stocks, and to ju.le from the model,
we think she will sail "some, if not faster," when she
is launched. Mes.-rs. F. X Co. have promised us a
descripri -n of her when she's I lunched, but any
gentleman of elegant leisure, like ourselves, hav ing
" nothing to do," (don't .ill speak at once,) if he
wants to ste a pretty model, we would recommend a
walk down theie to take a loek at her.
TiiKtrt: she Clow. Capt. Haley, of the schooner
JCttiouhto'ii, informs us that on his last trip, when
otl Km, Iliwaii, he saw two scluvls of sperm
whales. Ibis is the secon 1 time he has seen them,
an 1 as he is an
knows a " greasy

way through the streets to the Esplanade, for this

Mil. Editor : As some of your readers may sup pose
the IliwiMins to be more superstitious than
other peoples, to c .rrect such a notion, it may not be
ami.-s to insert a parallel to the superstition of the
Hawaiian1;, as described by the Rev. W. R. Scott, in
the Fuhj action of April IS, and reprinted in the
A Ivrlixer :
" In the Gitano language, casting the evil eve is
callel Qtrrdo iuisuIj, which
simply means making
sie.-v, ami wiii.;. i, accri;tig to the i;. . : ji f 1 1 ri supersti
tion, is itccnmpii-hed by casting an evil look at peo
ple, epeei illy chil Iron, who, from the tenderness of
their constitution, are supn.s.'l to be more easily
blighted than t ho-o; of a more mature age. After
receiving the evil glance, they fall sick and die in i
few hours. The Spaniards have very little to say
about the evil eye, though the belief in it is very
prevalent, especially iu Andalusia among the lower
The reader may find the above, and much more
about the same superstition as pievailing among the
Spaniards, Jewj, Turks, and other nations iu the
ninth chapter of " IWrow's Gyjsies in Spain."
Iu regard to the Hawaiian superstition, the editor
of the I'o'yuesiiin remarks that "The universality
and persistency with which this horrible superstition
maintains itself among the Hawaiian people, after
hree generations of schooling, is a sad demurrer, a
foil ful comment on the character au l eilioiency of
the education they hive received."
Now, what w ill he say about the character and
efficiency of the tducatiou the Spaniard have beeu
i i i-t i .
receiving, not for three generations only, but for
more than twenty times three generations, when,
notwithstanding a hundred generations of schooling,
the horiible superstition of the evil eye is still very
prevalent among them ? X.

this design wiil be a h-pted on all the French c.uas,
and on the postage stamps also.
The R)inan Catholics have built a large church in
le-lio, Japan, and are usiriir everv means to iu-
! sinuate themselves. It is said thev have adooted the

Pltui's Pknce From the month of November,
l?"., to the end of October. 15J2, the Peter's Pence
tribute, ncc.rding to the Tulltt, has produced the
suai of j--,oC7,lj'i'-). The collection has averaged
srl.SOii.O M p. r annum about 00 per d--y ; but
the collection for the present year will exceed that
The cxzv.aticns cf the Palatine Palace of the
Camis, at Rome, are being pursued with great
activity. Water, according to Gali-.ani, has sprung
forth in great abundance there, so that a fountain
has been arranged. The amount granted year y
by the French Government for the researches is
Eugenie. The Empress of France, the extravagant
lea ier of f.i-hions, whose photograph is such a
favourite in ladies albums, finds time for state and
ecclesiastical nil iirs. She is a zealous Roman Catho
lic, a patron of Southern rebels, and. by her influence
over her husband, has been the foe of Italian freedom
and the upholder of the Pope,
Gkkek ik G.-Li'. When Napoleon, about
desired to build a palace for the King et Rome, near
thu Harrier de Passy, the shop of a poor cobbler,
named Simon, stood in the way. Simon, having
1-virne 1 what was g ing on, demanded twenty thous
an 1 francs for his tenement. The administrator
hesitated a few days, and then decided to give it ;
but Simon, gond-.'d by the greed of gain, now asked
for ty thous ind francs. The sum was more than two
hundred times its value, and the demand was scout
ed An attempt was made to change the frontage,
but being found impossible, they went again to the
cobbler, who had raided his price to sixty thousand
francs. He was (-tiered fif'y thousand, but refused.
The Emperor would not give a franc more, and pre
ferrel to change his plans. The speculating sou of
St. Crispin then saw his mistake, and offered his
property for fifty thousan 1 francs, f. r forty thousand,
thirty thousan 1, coming down at list to ten thcus
aud. Toe disasters of 1814 happened, and all
thoughts of a palace for the King of Rome were
abandoned. Some months after, Simon sold his shop
for one hundred and fifty francs, and in a few days
afrer the sile was removed to an insane asylum ;
disappointed avarice had driven him crazy.
