lowing incident, illustrating the destructivenef,s of
this deadly weapon. During one of the battles, a
single Prussian battalion found itself confronted
with a single Austrian battalion, each numbering
about 1,000 men. From some cause, there was a
long standing grudge between the t fiieers or men
ot these particular battalions, and each accepted
the challenge to mortal combat, marching firmly
and steadily to the contest. The commander of the
Prussian forces having the fullest confidence in
the superiority of his weapons, told his men uot to

AnnESTKn. The burglary to which we referred
last week as having been committed at Dr. Smith's
residence, proves to have been done by a native
employed on the Kualoa Plantation. After getting
through with his work Saturdays, he was in the
habit of coming into town and making his depreda
tions, thus carrying on two trades nt one time. Be
sides the above, he entered Mr. Krugor's dwelling
the same night and stole some clothing, and is be
lieved to have entered Mr. S. M. Carter's and Mr.
Jones' dwellings in Xuuanu street. Most of the
stolen property has been recovered. He was very
cool in his operations. After robbing I)r. Smith's
house, he put on the stolen hat, coat, watch and
boots, and thus equipped returned to the plantation
to work. Some jewelry which he stole he gave to
native women. When asked how he came by the
things, he said he obtained them from a Portuguese.
On Thursday he was tried in the Police Court, and
sentenced to five years hard labor a severe but
Faxct Poi LTiir. Mr. Waterman has a breed of
poultry, imported from Java by I)r. Ilillebrand,
which is really a curiosity. It is the Jungle or
"Silky Fowl," rather small in size, with very pecu
liar, silky feathers, resembling somewhat those of
an emeu or ostrich. The color is white, though
there is another variety of the same fowl in India,
the color of which is generally yellow. They are
remarkably pugnacious, and on one occasion re
cently one of the hens, having a breed of chickens,
was attacked by a large rat. She immediately
showed fight, and flew at the rat with perfect fury,
biting and stratrhing it till after a contest of ten or
fifteen minutes, it was left dead. This variety is
prized mainly as a curiosity, the hens not being
good layers, and the eggs are very small.
Among the passengers by the ship -V'ry
Frances is Mr. J. B. Holden. who visits tliese Isl

visit all the plantations on the group, and our
planters will doubtless find him capable of impart

held last evening.
Senator Harris led the meeting. In his opening

parts of the country to attend the Convention, the
results of which might affect essentially, if not vitally,
the welfare of this distracted country. It was there
fore appropriate that on the evening of the Christian

The Convention istued an address, too long fcr in
sertion. Of it, John Minor Butt, one of the dele
gates, says :
" I regard it as one of the most formidable indict
ments ever found against any man in this country
the most formidable indictment ever brought by
any Grand Jury of this country. It severity con
sists in its truth." It is a most eloquent appeal to
those who nave crushed tbe rebellion, to save the
loyal men of the South ftom a reorganized oppress
ion," which excludes them from any place in the
Government and leaves them at tbe mercy of their ,
most rancorous foes, who have alreaJy murdered
in cold blood more than a thousand devoted L'uiju
citizens eince the surrender of Lee."
