I IiiAVMllan lttirt Volumo II.
We are indebted to Hi3 Honor Jude Davis
for a copy of the Reports of a portion of the
Decisions rendered by the Supreme Court of the
Hawaiian Islands, in law, equity, admiralty and
probate." The first volume was prepared by
Jude Kobertison. in 1S57, and embraced the
decisions of the Court from its organization to
ISoo. The present volume is a continuation ct
the same, and covers the decisions from 1S57 to
18G3, making an octavo volume of 7V7 pages,
printed at the Government Press.
The work has been edited by Judge Davis,
who has devoted to it much labor and care
during the past eight months. It embraces 39
cases in law, 31 eases in admiralty, IS cases in
equity among which are some of the most im
portant suits ever tried in our Courts, such as
the Point Property ease, the Montgomery case,
the Jarrett and Manini case, and others more or
less prominent, involving decisions in every
branch of law. Besides there are several probate
and several habeas corpus and mandamus cases.
To the legal profession and to all who are in
terested in law or law suits, these reports are
invaluable, as they contain decisions on various
points of law, which have become established as
precedents for any future similar cases.
These volumes will tend to give character to
our Courts, not merely in the kingdom but
abroad, wherever they become known. In con
versation with a member of the New York bar
last summer, he narrated an incident which
serves to illustrate : In an important suit before
the New York Superior Court, this gentleman
introduced, in the course of his argument, the
first volume of Hawaiian Reports to sustain him,
remarking at the same time that he hoped that
the Court would la- none the less weight on the
decision he produced because the volume was not
found in the library of the Court, or because it
embraced simply the decisions of one of tlie
youngest in the family of nations. After the
lawyer had cited the case, the Judge called for
the volume, carefully examined its contents,
and, in his decision on the suit in question,
which involved a large property, paid a hand
some tribute to the Hawaiian Courts, and re
marked that the decisions therein recorded
showed legal talent coupled with diligent
study, not surpassed in any similar work that he
knew of. He moreover quoted from the Ha
waiian Reports, in giving his decision, and the
suit resulted favorably to the lawyer who intro
duced the volume.
In some rcsjecLs the second volume is an im
provement on the first. The index at the close
is very copious, and gives the substance of the
various suits. In the fore part a full table is
given of the casts reported. The rules of the
Court are also published. The printing is well
executed on new and fair type, and the binding
also was done here by Mr. Yollum, showing that
we have artisans capable of executing work as
well as it can be done elsewhere.

in progress at the foundry during the past few
weeks for the purpose of testing the qualities of our
soil for making bricks, which have resulted very
atisfactorily. They were made by Mr. J. G. Os
borne, a German who recently arrived from New
Zealand, and though a mason by trade, is fully con
versant with the art of making bricks. Our soil,
though not so clayey as in other countries, is found
to possess the principal qualities required for this
purpose. The red lava soil that abounds almost
everywhere, when united in proper proportions
with the black lava sand, produces a good stiong
article of bricks, as the samples at Mr. Hughes of
fice will attest. After making further experiments,
and manufacturing a few thousand bricks from dif
ferent soils, Mr. Osborne proposes to erect machin
ery to manufacture them on as large a scale as may
be required. Our consumption at present amounts
to five or six hundred thousand per annum, but if
they could be furnished at a more reasonable price,
so as to allow of their being used for erecting
dwellings and stores, we see no reason why a mar
ket may not be opened for ten times the number
It may not be generally known that bricks have
been made at the islands before. The old two-story
house on the premises known as Beretania at Ba
hama, near the large trees on the shore near the
lighthouse, was built about fifty years ago of bricks
made out of the red soil found on the hills back of
Lahaina. The house was formerly occupied as a
dwelling, then as a barber-shop, and more recently
as a store-house bv Oilman & Co. It is now out of
repair and going to decay ; but it shows that good
bricks have been and can be made out of our na
tive soils. We wish Mr. Osborne success in his en
p-jspS" A rumor is on the street that the steamship
Ajax will not return to this port. Captain Moore,
the Company's agent, assured us previous to her
departure, that she would return immediately, and
that a second steamer would be put on as soon as
the trade calls for it. From San Francisco our
advices are that she would be dispatched at once
for Honolulu. She must have arrived over by th
22d of February, and would leave by the 3d of
March (to-day), so that she may be expected by
the 12th to the l.th inst. Her agents here are re
ceiving freight for her at current rates, and no
fears need be entertained as to her returning, nor
as to the oermanencv of a steamer line, though
some other vessel may be put on in place of the
Ai-ix. should she be found too large. A liberal
sunnort from our merchants and planters is all
that is required to secure steam between the two
A Novki. L k-Hoisk. On discharging the cargo
i of the bark A. A. Eklrid'je from Portland, the tem
perature of her hold was found to be unusually
; cold, and everything that came out of it appeared
half frozen. On Tuesday the cause was discovered,
for in breaking out the lumber, it was found actu
ally frozen together, so that a crowbar was neces-
sarv to separate the planks, the ice around which
was an inch or more thick. Several buckets-full of
ice were secured by the staring natives, who enjoy
ed it with a little fresh cid-r. all direct from Ore
con. It seems that the Eklrhlje loaded at Portland
durins a heavy snowstorm, and the planks wen;
stowed away in her hold covered with snow and
ice. which remained compact till brought out into
sunliirht on the wharf here. The apples, though
over forty days on board, were discharged in hue
-J Thk Colkt HoUsk During the pa.-t week, has
been repainted and the walls inside tastefully col
ored. The spacious halls of justice now present
so attractive an appearance that we fear the temp
tation to go to law will be irresistible with many
-who are sometimes undecided on the subject. We
certainly are inspired with no ill motives when we
wish the.pidgos and jurymen no increase ot business.
A Nkw Coastfk. Iiy an item anion;; ir n.M
inercial news, the purchase of tlie I'nited H.Ce-
revenue cutter Fi'i tcard by Captain Chapell w ill 1"
noticed. We understand tli.it tdie is intended for
the island trade, and was to leave New London in
January for Honolulu. She is h beautiful clipper
model, well l.uilt.iuid has for years been ia govern
ment service as a revenue cutter, but a- the old sail
craft are being superseded by steam cutters, h.-r
sale was ordered. We understand that :-he is in
fine order and has her original armament. She lia-
a topsail schooner rig. similar to the A'tA'VrtKOoi.
If not sold, she will enter the coasting service, for
which we judge she is well adapted. She maybe
expected out ia May or June.
Ladies Bkvevoij-int Sociktv. If the multitude
of bright smiling faces and sparkling eyes that
appeared on Thursday evening at Makiki. i any
evidence, the affairs of this society are in a niot
flourishing condition. The music and tinging were
of the first order, even beside that of Madame
bishop and Lascelles, and shows that we have resi
dent artists who are worthy of the name, though
thev may not have had the honor of appearing on
a stage. To add to the pleasure of tiie evening,
the moon came out ia all her beauty,
" Hung like a pera on the brow of the ky
And turning the clouds, s they ! her, to iifht."
' TAf Messrs. Nolle Jfc Kruger are iu receipt of an
article of Virginia smoking tobacco, in package
cf as many and varied colors as Joseph's coat is
said to have been composed of.
This tobacco wn put up in the " harJ times f the rebel
lion, for it i placed iu bt: ft one-hlf. one-thinl n.l one
nuarter of a poutnl each, the bags beiiiK mJe frotu alux.nt
fvery varietv of la.lics dresses, from crtton chock l spotted
linen, from tine silk and moire antiqu U rhintt in.l rut-lam
stutT. It is prt-sunied that the tobacco thus ti.igKed fr"u
lack of other material, and offered the soldiers the !'irtuiiiijr
when they purchased their supplies to have a jxmi-h thrown in.
The tobacco itself is of very sujterior tu!jty, mild and very
fragrant. The "style" at least is uuve'. and the article wor
thy the attention of lovers of the weed."
aro gbtd to report the safety of the
schooner Albtrni, which returned to this port on
the 1st instant.- She lay on the rocks near Waimea
two days, and on the third day, utter her cargo was
taken out, Captain Clark succeeded by the help of
kedge anchors, in getting her oil", with the loss of
her keel and rudder. A temporary rudder was
made, which .enabled her to return to this port,
though she leaked on the passage up, and will al
once be hove down and repaired.
-The light north wind, which set in m Thurs
day night, brought iu fleet t.f coasters, and made
