luard. and that all the jia--eneis and niot of
their li.iae had heeii I:t!nl"d : a!-o. that there
were l";:'ty death.S till the Jia'-ae. This of cour.se
e i'i-ed the ; ihh-.-t exci'enn iit. The younger ior
ti"ii (and .t!ie -w of the older) of our i.ihahitauts
took a la.-i fond look of tiieir Fair Ophelias'
whenever they ni'-t. feari!:g that the seoiugc niinlit
ni.iki; way with tln-m ln-1'.jie tiiey had another
th.itn.-e to meet on Lull;? Jlridge. by laoonliht.
The reports did t!"t worry jour correspondent at
all, as he Lad lived too lonu in Ilonohi! n. and seen
too iimeh of "T:u: 'oI:nki:." to be afllietetl by
;o-.-ip tir reports, and was of course serersi- us a
uiin'in-r's eve through U all. The next day the
reports tliuiiui.-hed in size, until filially tln-y tame
down to the fact that there were only three cases
i.r cholera, and a!! w ere convalescent, ainl that the
steamer lay in pi:r;t;:t::ie at .-'aueelito. This had
a wonderful iailuence in iii;etinr the public nerves,
whii li became much easier, but several persons
were very much put out and annoyed, becau-e the
passengers would not be permitted to land tor
three i!as. Finally a eiiileinaii. who had a wife
and lamiiy on board, was allo.vc.l to vi.-dt the ship
w the prov iso tl: Jt he shoiihl remain on board
till the pa-ei!gcrs had permission to coim? on shore.
I This becoming generally known, the man was
made the bearer of ijaile a number of let'ers.
I amtng tliein one from a eiitleman who was ex
' peeling a sister-iii -law. and whose name he had
! f-een in the list of passeiigeis. The 1. 'iter stated
I that he would meet her on the tug-boat as kooii as
j the pa-s.-ngei s were brought from the ship. The
j letter unfortunately was not delivered, but the
! man was up to time, g.jt on boai d the tug before
! she reached the wharf, and f r lear tf making a
mistake asked one of the passengers if he could
j show him .Miss llrown. The lady was pointed out
! to LI m . and the inee:i.ig was a s; cae which bullied
j description. The lady literally smothered the
j man's face with kisses (as sin- had not seen him for
' eighteen years.) A tier this salutation was over
I the J'.if'i' l't:!j (about I'D. with the sweetest voice
! imaginable, exclaimed : " Oh, my dear .Mr. Jones,
j I am so glad you have com. to rescue me from
! that dreadful ship." The gentleman was doubly
i surprised and somewhat coiii'u.-ed, to say the least,
' but linally he stammered out : ; I'm not Mr.
Jones!" and that there was probably a mistake
somewhere. All explanation followed, and a clear
ca.-e of iui.-t.il.cn identiiy was the result. The in
cident was exceedingly amusing, and wound up
wiih a hearty laugh Iroin the spectators.
Cieut caution was taken by the authorities of
the city to prevent the spread of the uialady, should
it make its appearance, and every steamer from
the isthmus and Nicaragua was thoroughly ex
amined before being permitted to land passengers.
Had the cholera reached the city the destruction
would have been wholesale, as the place was in a
lil 1 1 iv condition, owing to the heavy rains and bad
weather, to say nothing of a great number of the
sewers being choked up with filth and dirt.
Although he has been busy vetoing the admission
of N'ebra.-ka and Colorado and other measures, and
taking a strong s'and agaiast the impeachment
project, yet for all that has not forgotten the Ha
waiian l.-Iaiids, as will be seen by his proclamation
of January 2:7th. which it is supposed will be of
some benefit to the Islands. Jn this connection it
will be well to mention that lion. I). C. Mcllucr
has introduced a bill to authorize the establishment
ol a lire o! steamers between this port and the
l.-lands. 'I In line is to be a semi-monthly one,
with a suh.-iiiy of $ loO.OO1). The bill has been re

here art! confident it will pass.

going up to thirteen cents this month. The trade

week on tlie subject of Leiie-voleiit Associations,
we ia advertently omitted to mention one of the
oldest and most prosperous the Mechanics" Pene
lit Union. This Association has been in existence
during a number of years, and has a large fund
accumulated and invested. A great deal o! moiiey
has been paid out for the benefit of sick members
and ti'ir families. The monthly meetings of the
Society are held at the room of Engine Co. Xo. 2.
many of the members of which also belong to the
A healthy livalry is now going on between
the two native female benevolent societies of Ho
nolulu, under the leadership r.- pet lively of Her
Maje.-ty Queen Emma and of the Hon. Mis. Pishop.
The Queen, it will be remembered, was mainly the
prime mover in bringing about the erection of that
noble Pis' 'nation which bears her name, and since
her letarir from abroad she has been just ns active
its ever in exciting and directing the charitable in
stincts of her country-women, and in relieving the
sick and needy. These ell'orts to relieve the sutl'er
ings of the poor ami dying, are worthy of all com
mendation, and the laudable rivalry ef the two
Societies i. iay serve to lengthen the lives of some
who without aid might only Gad an untimely end.
Hovotii.r Tko.v Wo:;ks. la our walks about
tow n for the purpose of snapping up unconsider
ed trifles," we sometimes drop In at the Foundry,
and always find something there to in:, -rest. The
other day we saw there a splendidly solid piece of
Machinery recently completed, ia the shape of a
sugar mill, tie workmanship of which it was de
clared by g I judges, could Hot be excelled ill
any of the machine shops of tin old world. The
iron tollers f..r crushing the cane were truly
mas-ive. and the adjusting apparatus very neatly
finished. The mill was built for sale, being the
eleventh which has been turned out from the foun
dry, and ha been sold to .uelehers .V Co. for the
Kaiw iki Plantation, of which they are the agents,
for s:.i'oo. The rollers are 21x10 inches, and
weigh each about (i.OtiO lbs. It will require about
2" horse power to drive this mill: the power in
this instance, however, will be water, by a wheel
2i feet ifi diameter and ." feet face. It will be
shipped ti-day for its destination by the schr. .-ImmV.
We are glad to learn that the f oundry is busily
occupied at present, having commenced to work

lo.v.vt. St iiooi.. Oa Monday last Profevsor J. K.
Kinney gave a philosphical lecture, w'uh ex.ei i
inelits, at the Koyal School, to his pupils. Mr.
Turner with the scholars of the St. Albans school
was present, and also several ladies and gentlemen
by invitation. There were several experiments, to
show the properties of Hydrogen, followed by an
exhibition showing the magnetic telegraph, aid
the wonders of electro-magnetism. The scholars
were much interested in the magic slippers, which
being put on, caused the wearer to dance about
lastly, and also the magic dollar which defied,
those desirous to have it. from jacking it out of a
bucket of water. The exhibition of electro-magnetic
light, showed how wondei fully brilliant and
j.owciial. this light can be mad" for mechanical
purposes. The philosophical apparatus of the
school, is being added to every day. so as to enable
the teacher, to extend his illustrations in physical
sciences. We have no doubt, that many persons,
would enjoy an invitation to witness ihe next ex
periments which Mr. Kinney will give to his school
again. s..me future dav. iaz-lt-:
A Moon. 11 wx-C'.u ok. A friend on Maui thus
facetiously takes olf the rain statistics lately pub-li-hod
: "Seeing by your valuable paper that there
is much interest in ruin ;';".?, I write to give you
the mode I have adopted to measure with the
greatest accuracy and b-ast trouble, the rain in this
vicinity. Having secured a hole in the roof which
discharges freely directly over ni- bed. I have only
to move the bed slightly, place a bucket under the
point of delivery, and can then lie at my ease, and
know the amount of water at any time, by simply
lighting a match and looking ia the bucket. On
the night of the great storm, (no matter about the
exact date) I thus ascertained that '2 inches of
water fell somewhere on Cue roof but as the hole
is so small ii cannot be seen, tvett by the most
careful searching, and the water was spread over
the diameter of the bottom of a water pail, your
astute mathematicians and ' professinnalist.s ' can
calculate the depth and weight of the column of
water which fell upon this devoted roof that night,
supposing the said hole to have been the diameter
of a shhitj'c nail. I have only to say that any one
is at liberty to use a Kain (J-auge constructed on
the same principle, and will find it as satisfactory
as I have done'. Xo patent will be applied for.
Yours in behalf of Suiknc::."
CiiKi.sKA LAt xmtv. We notice that Mr. IJ. H.
Lyon has started a washing establishment on th?
corner of Queen and Richards streets, which he
has named the Chelsea Laundry. Plenty of clean
shirts are a positive neccsaty of civilized life, and
to say that when a man gels one on he feels in bet
ter humor with himself and all the world, and is
more disposed to be humane and charitable than
at other times, is simply to repeat a self-evident
proposition. On the other hand, there is nothing
more irritating to the bachelor mind, or more con
ducive to indigestion, than, r.fier donning the gar
ment to find no buttons. Paterfamilias on such
occasions, unless he be a man of a very meek dis
position, and never gets into a Harry, will fly oir
on a tangent, and upset the family comfort for a

' all buttons will be sewed on," and in that case
it is likely to prove an institution conducive to
good morals. If in addition, the villainous native
practice of pounding linen to pieces on the stones
suggesting an idea of complicity with the dry
goods dealer be discarded, there can be no rea
son why the laundry should not prove a success.
A Model IIoom. Engine Co. il Mechanic" Xo. 2
have recently been making an addition to their
room of some feet in the rear, and it is now one
of the finest halls of the kind in the city. It has
also been thoroughly and neatly repainted and
handsomely fitted up. It is really worth one's
while to look iti at Xo. 2"s room, and observe the :
scrupulous neatness with which everything about
the place is kept, including the "bully machine,'
of which the boys are so justly proud. The new j
alterations and improvements have cost the com- !
pany several hundred dollars, a good portion of I
which they had on hand, and raised the remainder
by assessing themselves. Their motto is "Our
aim the public good.'" and during their long exist-
ence as a company, they have1 abundantly proved j
that they mean what they say.
Real Estate Sale. At the sale by auction last
week by the order of the Executors of the estate of
the late R. C. Wyllie. the Temporary Cathedral
premises on Xuuaiiu street, were sold to Mr. J. T.
Waterhouse for the sum of $1.110 jibout one-half
what it cost the last owner. Emma. House, on
Adams street, w as also bought by the same gentle
man for one-fourth what it cost the orig
inal builder. And the house in Perotania street,
which cost Mr. II. A. S. Wood between 7.000 to
trS.OOO. was purchased by Mr. U. F. Hoiks for
t!.."00. These facts are unfortunately significant
of the downward tendency of the prices of real es
tate" here, and the cause is undoubtedly quite patent
to the observation of the most superficial observer
a strong and increasing but quite natural feeling of
distrust and waat of confidence in the stability und
integrity of the present (vernuieiit. Capital

A Wkeck. n.ititvi's. Capt. Wilbur of the K-vnoi,
which arrived from Maui yesterday morning, in

entering the Molokai channel with very stiff trades,
he saw something to leeward that looked like a
schooner's caboose bottom up. He kept away as
much as possible in order to examine it. but to
have done so effectually would necessitate his jib

him. During my absence from home His Y.x. the
Minister of Finance, accompanied by Dr. J. Molt
Smith, made the tour of the island, anil on Satur
day or Sunday called at Kalanipoo's house -and
found him very ill. Dr. Smith kindly remained
with him for some time and prescribed for Vim.
an.1 after l e and Mr. Harris had gone on and pass
ed the night at Mr. Lane's, returned the next day
to Kalanipoo's and saw him again, but without
avail, as he died in a few hours after. It is quite
evident that Kalatiipoo was seriously ill for at least
a fort-night before his death, that he was visited
and seen by several parties, any one of whom
would have endeavored to ascertain the cause of
his death, had there been anything tnysierious or
any suspicions of foul play about it. It seems
strange that twice within" twelve mouths, you
should have allowed the death of Kalauipoo to be
made the text in your journal of attacks on the
govenment. each incompatible with the other, and
both eipially unjustifiable. A few mouths ago. if I
remember lightly, the government was accused in
your paper of culpable negligence in allowing
such men us Kalauipoo. and others, to die without
furnishing them with medical ad vice and assistance,
and now the s-uit!' journal states that "he died
very suddenly apparently having been poisoned.'
ami that no'ipiestions were asked." Is there not
an obvious incongruity between the two state
ments? As I mn administrator of Kalanipoo's

hope you will not consider it oilicious or intrusive
on my part to ask you to publish this (contradiction

Editorial Ukmakks. We are always glad to
receive corrections of any misstatements that may
have appeared in print, and especially in being
able to state on so pood authority that the late
Kai.anii'oo one of the most enterprising and pro
mising Ilawaiians whom we knew and respected
did not come to his death suddenly, nor by means
of poison, as has generally been believed among
his own acquaintances and neighbors.
The letter, however, furnishes us with another
and strong proof of the insane policy of the gov
ernment in forbidding the sale of medicines on
this island, beyond the limits of Honolulu, except
by a " regularly licensed physlc'an. The acci
dental visit of Mr. Harris, a lawyer, and Dr. Smith,
a dentist, neither of whom was any more compe
tent under the circumstances, to prescribe for the
dying man than to edit a newspaper ought to
have convinced both of them that had there been
ome provision by which this worthy native could
have been properly and timely treated timing his
sickness, he might to-day have been living. There
is no good reason why some simple dispensary,
may not be established in every rural district, and
placed in the charge of judicious foreigners, like
Mr. Moliiit and others living in every district, who
may sell medicines, visit sick natives and when
necessary send for a physician. We believe that
many a valuable life might thus be saved.
Under the present stringent laws, however, no
man can charge for medicines furnished unless he
Vie a licensed physician. The object of the exist
ing medicine law is to prevent all persons not phy
sicians from selling medicines to natives. It allows
medicines tu be ijivcn ijvatniloi.ity. but in this part
of the world few can be found so public spirited as
to buy and give away. The excessive mortality
among the natives, which the census will show
amounting, we understand, to nearly 10.000 deaths
more than births during the period of six years
just elapsed ought to rouse our government to
Ihe fact that in fifty years sit the farthest, there will
be no Hawaiian race left. The remnant is vanish

To tiir Em roK CoMMi.i'.etAi. Advektlskr : In
your issue of last week you published an article
headed " Incompetency of Road Snperv isors," sign

of fair play, I ask you to give this an insertion on
your paper. The first part of Kona's ' effusion,
had it come from a responsible source, would have
been all very well, but, unfortunately for " Kona.'

as nobody in Kona wanted a road," Ac, Ac.
Now, sir, let m give you and the; public the
facts in regard to this matter. A few years ago a
private individual without the slightest authority
closed up a public road, that had been such for
over thirty years without any excuse except that it
passed the back of his house : and lie being one of
those who like to have the best side seen, closed
up this long-established highway, much to the in
convenience of the traveling public, causing them
to make a long detour, to descend one hill and
climb another, and thus regain the old road at a
point beyond his house.

The extreme Radicals are determined to settle mat
ters on their own basis.
The Times publishes the report of tho majority of
the New Orleans Co.umittee, which urges iuterven
tion by Congress to tecure to Louisiana a republican
government. Since the surrender of the rebel armies,
rebellion has assumed another form, and controls
the government. The latter should be suspended
and a provisional government established and main
tained by military force. The report is uccompauied
by a bill for the appointment of officers for tho new
organization by the President. The rebels are to be
enfranchised through the naturalization process.
New Plans for 4 Itecoiistruction."
ThadJeus Stcveus bill to reconstruct the Southern

A new plan has been devised by the New Orleans

Tho report of the majority of the Ntw Orleans
Riot Investigation Committee has been published.
Lt says that a full narrative, and in view of the acts
proved, the time has fully arrived when Congress
ehould intervene. The Committee will therefore
propose a bill applicable to Louisiana and other
States, in substance as follows : There shall be a
Governor and Provisional Council, to consist cf nine
persons, appointed by the President, with advice
from citizv'us of the State not disqualified by connec
tion with the rebellion. The Governor with the
consent of the Council, shall appoint State officers,
to hold their cilice till their successors shall be
elected by the people, at an election to be held en
day. Executive and legislative officers shall
hold oue year. The electors shall be male citizens
who can take the test oath and who have lived in the
State cne year. Persons wbo cannot take that oath,
but who never voluntarily countenanced rebellion
or served in it, except as priva'e soldiers in regular
warfate may become electors upou giving proof of
these facts before the U. S. Courts. There shall be
uo distinction on account of race or color. The reg
istration of voters and the time and manner of hold
ing eleciious to be provided iu rules made by the
Secretary of War. Military commaudeis shall be
given authority to enforce and execute the laws. The
people will elect members of a Convention, which
must frame a constitution recognizing the supremacy
of the Geueral Government, perpetuate the Union,
and must guarantee equality of rights legal and
political without regard to race or color. The laws
passed by the Legislature must be approved by Con
gress till the State is restored to representation.
Until so restored the State shall have one delegate iu
Passage of a Reconstruction Bill The lower
house of Congress passed, by a vote of 113 to 48, the
bill reported from the New Orleans Committee for
the establishment of legal governments in the sus
pended States. The vote shows more than a two
thirds majority in favor of the bid, and we are left
to infer that it received the unanimous support of the
Union members present. It ia called Eliot's, because
reported by Eliot as Chairman of the Committee, and
perhaps drawn by him. It is a modification of the
territorial plan, providing a temporary civil govern
ment, to be supported by the military if need be,
pending the adoption of measures for restoration of
practical Siate relations. A Governor and Provis
ional Council of nine persons are to be appointed by
the President, with the advice of citizc-DS of the State
not disqualified by connection with the rebellion.
The Governor, with consent of the Council, shall ap
point State oQcers to hold until their places are fill
ed at a popular election, to be held June let. Tho
executive and legislative officers thus elected to hold
for one year. All male citizens who cau take the
test oath and have lived oue year in the State, and
all persons who cannot take the oath but can furnish
proof that they never voluntarily countenanced the
rebellion, or served it, except as private soldiers in
regular warfare, shall be entitled to vote, without
distinction on nccouut of race or color. This provis
ion amounts to a practical amnesty for all but the
guilty leaders in the rebellion, yet it prevents fraud
by requiring the proofs demanded to be presented to
the National Courts. It also secures impartial suf
frage, and gives the entire loyal element that voice
in reconstruction which has hitherto been denied it.
Registration of voters, and the manner of holding
elections, are to be provided by rules and regulations
prescribed by the Secretary of War. Authority is
given the military cuminan.jcr to enforce and execute
the laws. In October an election for members of a
State Convention will be held. This Convention
must frame a Constitution recognizing the supremacy
of the General Government and the per petuity of the
Lmon, ana most guarantee equality of rights, legal 1
and political, without regard to race or color. The !
laws passed by the Legislature must be subject to !
the approval of Congress, the same as those of a Ter- i
ritory, until the State shall be restored to represen- !
tation. The general provisions of the bill, which we j
have thus outiiueJ, seem well calculated to end the j
present anomalous condition of things in the South,
to provide temporary civil governments that are not ;
mere creatures of military power like Johnson's gov- '
crnments; aud to keep the control of reconstruction !
in loyal hands. The plan insures uniformity iu I
essentials, and fixes an early day. It is far prefer- j
able to the military scheme of Stevens and the Re- i
construction Comraittee, and, if the Seuatc approves j
it, it may become a law.
