Corresi-oaJence cf the P. C. Advertiser,
Hawaii. May. lSf-G.
TIk' ilistru't of Ililo. as your readers v'U know,
is inUTSfctf.l ly isinniiu'iabU' streams, whose size
uii-I eon.-Ni-.-uent fonl.ibility are Ly no means con
stant qualities. The creation f a substantial bridge
aero-s any one of these, marks, by its erection, an
era in the j-.roijress of civilization on Hawaii, and
is a stratesiie point trained in the war on rebellious.
nn-iibdmd nature. Hjiecially so will be the
bridge soon to be thrown over that rampaging
jirinee of Hawaii rivers, the Wailuku. This ftrnc
tuif is to be of nf two arches, supported by
a pu r built nj iVi'in a solitl rock in the middle of
the stream. With the completion of this will be
lealized the bright ideals of many a resident of
th' beautiful bav town. Then no more shall gay
cavaliers be in constant fear of breakinjr through
into the flood beneath, and compelled to show their
Lr ili.uitry at the ri-k of their lives, as was once the
case some years ago.
Ah. w ith what delight do we of Hawaii see the
announcement that the KHuuta is once more to
viit regularly our ports. Steamers, aud bridges,
and regular overlaud transmission of letters, are
the very life ot civilization. A certain periodicity
in all business matters is as. necessary as in the
economy of the human system. The mail carriers
of this island deserve a notice iu this connection.
Every Wednesday atternoon a travel-worn pedes
trian enters the village ot Kawaihae w ith his well
known rubbcr-covei ed bag strapped securely to
his back. This he has brought trom Hilo, since
Monday morning, and as the shades of evening
cool the rocky hill sides he starts on his return,
reaching the bay on Saturday night, an arrival
which, in steamer limes, is no less welcome than
regular. This journey which, measured on the
many curved roads np and down the sides of ra
vines, and including a detour into Waipio, must be
not less than one hundred and sixty miles iu length,
is performed in alternate weeks by two men who
certainly show great powers of endurance. Some
times, though rarely, a horse is brought into requi
sition : and it does "seem strange that where horse
ilesh is so abundant, this should not always be
done : but the old saying is that a man will out
travel a horse. A branch mail connects with Ko
hala. and a fortnightly mail traverses the west
coast of the island, while another uhai Ida, as the
natives term him. vi.-its the volcano house, (uot the
crater.) and Kau. All this information Mr. Adver
tiser, is communicated fur the encouragement of
prospective settlers on our big hillock.
These are undoubtedly improving, although the
committal of the three northern districts to one
man. however enterprising he may be, suggests
something about too many irons in the fire. And
another idea in the mind of your correspondent is,
that if all the money laid out year after year on
the Kawaihae and Waimea cart-road, could by any
combined w isdom be brought to bear on the con
struction of a macadamized road, done being
really more abundant than soil, and such road so
graded, as I know it can be, that the water of sud
den deluging" rain showers shall run gently to the
side ditches, instead of dow n the middle of the
w ay ; if this could be done, it would in the end be
economy. Perhaps the Waimea Gracing Company,
who this year have furnished to the world .r3.0U0
lbs. of wool, may find it to their interest to think
on the subject. The mention of wool reminds me of
A. Sheep Shearing Machine
Existing on this island, but which, if I am allowed
to judge from the opinion of those who have seen
it. is fis yet more a specimen of ingenuity than a
really practical labor improvement. For, in the
first place, live bone and muscle and wooly irreg
ularity are hardly tit subjects for machine work.
Then agaiu, we have unskilled hands of Hawaiians
to do the w ork instead of the steady nerved North
ern arm, and a little misguiding of the shears may
add the weight, but not the value, of a severed
sheep's leg to the wool. It takes moreover two or
three to do the w ork. The thing may succeed after
all; for machines are always opposed at the
start, and I have only given the impressions of
those who have looked on. and observed its
Of the Trade in Sandal Wood
I have not much to report, but refer you to the

Our worthy School Inspector General in the (Jazette,
begs of the Hamakua School Inspector not to
build a Church at Kaala. The people can assure
him that he need not trouble himself at all in the
matter, that they intend to build a Church that is a
Church ami not a school house. The people in
these rural dristricts are very prompt this year in
the matter ol their Hawaiian pastors' salaries, in
creasing them often from 100 to l."0 and 200 dol
lars. And having certain sums recommonded to
them by the association as best to raise for other
benevolent purposes, they have massed their gifts
iu one vigorous effort at the beginning of the year.
Correspondence of the P. C. Advertissr.
Mit. Kiutor : On reading, in your issue of the
Uth nit., a communication from "Pro Tkm.." dated
" In the Woods,'" I was struck with its general
applicability to our neighborhood. Dut as ire do
not live in the woods, and. moreover, as we have
no " Government Supervisor Wearing a white
skin,"' the conclusion w as forced upon me that the
w riter meant some other place. lint leaving out
those trilling inaccuracies, the description applies
with striking exactness to the state of things which has existed
on this island for some time past ; only it is rather more so
here. For we have super-added the delightful little episodes of
lighting, stahhing, malicious house-burning, and threats against
life. VI e wait in vain for our Government officials to do their
duty. Meantime, thirgs grow worse. We shall rejoice when
the "time comes that the laws shall be faithfully executed.
Vours truly, Molokai.
It is singular that the letter of " Pito Tkm ," which came to
us from Maui, should lie of so universal application, as to bring
out letters from the other islands, under the supposition that it
referred only to them. It certainly does not auger a very de
sirable state of affairs, nor one very creditable to the Govern
ment. Ed. I ;
Uy the telegraphic news, it will be seen
that the new American Minister Kcsideiit, (Jen.
McCook, If ft New York in the steamer of May 11.
He arrives in San Francisco to-day, and will prob
ably arrive in Honolulu before the end of June, or
in time to unite with us in the celebration of the
4th of July. Jy the way, is it not time some pre
liminary movements are being made for the coming
anniversary? A private letter received by U3
from Washington states that General McCook is
quite a young man, a Keutuckian, who has made
himself prominent for his strong L'nion sentiments
and gallant service during the war. A few wee ks
before leaving, he married a Philadelphia lady,
and brings his bride w ith him. His Secretary of
Legation also accompanies him. The same letter
advises that Captain Wm. Keynolds, (formerly
Lieutenant) w hom many of our readers will remem
ber, has by Act of Congress, been placed in com
mand of a United States war vessel to be stationed
at these Islands, and to look after American inter
ests in the Central North Pacific. Up to the 10th
of April, no change had been mace in the pro
gramme of the China mail steamers, and Hon. I).
C. McRuer assures us, April 10, that it is expected
they will touch at Honolulu, and commence their
service January 1. In San Francisco, there was a
report current that Congress had relieved th" China
mail steamers from touching here. If so. it must
be with some provision lor supplying the deficiency.
j?-;" We know of no vessel likely to bring a
mail from San Francisco before the Comet or Smyr
niole, which would leave that port between the 2f"th
and 30th of May. and be due here June 10th to
l.'ith. The ship Ftarlf-s. for Hongkong may touch,
but there is no certainty about it. She would leave
only a little ahead of the packets.

Congress had admitted Colorado as a State, the

A new and important loan bill has been introduced
into Congress, authorijtng the Treasurer to fund th
war debt in new American Consolidated Bonds at f
per cent, interest. The telegraph reports from New
York respecting it say :
This measure was most favorably received yester
day in financial circles, and it is undecetood as hat
ing been shaped to meet carefully considered views of
Secretary McCulloch. That the measure will be ac
complished aud favorably acted upon in the national
legislature, we have no reason to doult.
A serious riot occurred on My 2 between the ne
groes and vagabond whites iu Memphis, resulting in
the death of fittecu negroes and one white man. lue
negro quarters were burnt. Only the lowest class or
whites participated in the riot ; the best citizens
deprecated it, Luf were powerless to prevent or sup
press it. 1 he riot is said to have been unprovoked,
and the Mayor, John Park, was too drunk to govern
the city. At last accounts all was again quiet.
Memphis, May 4th. The riot is happily ended,
and no further trouble is expected. The HulUtin
ascribes the riot to the autip&thy between the Irish
and negroes, and does not credit the report that it
was premeditated by the negroes, lhe 1calanchc
siys it was engineered by fanatical Abolitionists. The
Post (Ividical paper) has little further than to report
the a 11 air. The citizens generally are humiliated by
an event which they could uot control, and for
which they disclaim the responsibility. There has
been n great accumulation of negroes here, whose
preseuce has been a fruitful source of trouble, and
they can well be spared.
The New York .Mips says the releisc of Semmes,
by order of the President, gives the latter another
title to the gratitude of the Southern people, aud to
the confidence and respect of those who cherish tho
honor of our country. The more traitors and pirates
he releases, the greater will be the gratitude of those
who were lucky enough to never be caught.
Washington, May 2d. A dispatch from Commo
dore lwidgers to the Navy Department, dated Valpa
raiso, S 1st of March, says: "Upon my arrival at
this port with the squadron I called upon the Kng.
lish Admiral, who informed me that he intended to
prevent any sudden bombardment. And would only
buffer it after ample notice. To this I made no re
ply; but having considered the matter, sought occa
sion next day to say I would join him,' in preventing
any suddeu bombardment, and would also go as much
further as be chose. 1 assured him the Monadnock
could take care of the JVumancia ; that it was abso
lutely certain that probably iu less than thirty sec
onds, and certainly not more than thirty minutes,
the .Monadnock, entirely unassisted, would leave
only the mastheads of the A uwancia above water,
and that the wooden vessels, English and American,
could look out for the Spanish wooden vessels. The
English Admiral said at first that he would go with
me, for I plainly declared I would not take a step
without him. I said I had no intention of becoming
a catspaw to draw European chestnuts out of the fire
and then have the Powers I ecrved laughing at my
singed paw, while they enjoyed the fruit of my te
merity. The English Admiral finally determined to
throw the responsibility upon the English Embassa
dor, who did not choose to act. The promise of Eng
lish co-operation having failed, no separate action on
my part was taken, as uone had been proposed.
When I was assured the English Admiral was deter
mined not to resist the bombardment, 1 called upon
him and said that, as I did not choose to drift into a
collision where I bad no purpose to collide, I should
move ray vessels out of the way of the Spaniards.
This intention I communicated verbally to the Span-
h ish Admiral."

The most important news received is that the Re
form Bill, opening the right of suffrage to nearly
half a million more voters in England, passed the
House of Commons on the 2'Jth of April. Consider
ing the strong and violent opposition from the Timet
and other Tory press in the interest of the aristocracy,
the Ministry have achieved a great victory, though
the bill passed by only five majority in a vote of GUI.
Political interests in England center in the fate of
the Reform Bill, and a vote was expected on the
28th. Owing to a defection in the Liberal raDks,
from the unseating of several Liberals for election
bribery, the opposition journals assert that there
will be an actual majority against the bill. The
London Star calls for a dissolution of Parliament and
an appeal to the country in case the Ministry is de
feated. The bill abolishing the declaration of conformity
to the Liturgy of the Church of England by the Fel
lows of Colleges, as passed in the Committee, was
adopted in the House of Commons on the 25tb, by
208 against 18G.
Private telegrams to the Paris Afonilcur assert

Paris Constitutionnel accepts the news as correct.

and at eight o'clock in the morning the division took
