NOTES OF THE WEEK.
EartbqaaUea naid ibe Vwlcnata.
The American whaling bark Hercules. HowfUnJ,
ilaa'er, nrriTexl from Hilo, t.u Thurlay nioming,
l.ringing lator news from that rortion of Hawaii re
gurding the cartluiuikca. Ve Late ma-Ie extructa
from such corretriilciice as hits c'iie to us, anl have
been kimlly emiittel to make txtracti from other
iftu-ra rfivel by parties in this city.
A correspoiblciit, writing from Kau, says : " The
earthijuakca cotuiuruceJ on Friday night ; some say
we haJ thirty or more shocks. Saturvltiy morning I
awoke abnut daylight, ainl up to 1 P. M. I counted
nincty-svYon eartluiuakt-a ; none were very aevere,
but their frequency frightenel us. While at dinner
we had a heavy shock crockery jingled and the
house cretikel like a ship in a Morni. I left the table
and went over to , and while talking with them
we had a fearful shock. I caught up one child, and
another, and little and followed,
running out ot the houe, while vaes, books, boxed,
Ianijut and dUhes were lulling ubout ua. When we
got out, wulLs were falling down with a thundering"
no se, ana the air w:is htltM witn uust tne earth
still quivering. In lej-s than twenty-four hours we
had over two hundred fchH-k9! We all feel nervous.
The children are very much frightened. Little
blept in my arini part of the night, and the rest of
the time he held me tightly. My exjierienee of earth
quakes to be awoke at night, the house creaking
acd crackling, and .children crying with terror ia
enough to make anybody nervous."
Another letter, of the .ith of March, says : " At
about 8 o'clock Friday evening we felt a slight shock
of an earthquake ; this was the first and possessed
some novelty. Since then we have had no less than
three hundred! At this time a feeling of absolute
terror prevails. The past forty-eight hours has com
pared more of the terrible than one usually expe
riences in a lifetime. The most aevere shock took
place at a quarter of 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon
The earth moved like a troubled sea, and the wonder
id that more damage was not done."
We have been permitted to make the following ex
tracts from a Hilo letter of the third of April :
"We have had shocks ever since Saturday last,
!8th March. On yesterday, April 2d. at four in the
afternoon, we had a very heavy shock, breaking up
crockery and gl:is ware of all descriptions. Mios
Urickwood wns at Mr. Jones, and when the shock
came, ran out of the house and leaped oil' the veran
dah, spraining her ankle and breakiug a small bone.
Jtev. Mr. Lymau's house looks like a perfect wreck.
The plastering is all down and the foundation is bad
"Tla families of Messrs. Coan and Wet more have
left their houses. lr. Wetmore has lost his stock of
drugs. The sea came in yesterday, 2d April, and
washed up to and over the t aiakc bridge and up to
the King's fish-ponds, carrying away the walls in.
several places. The sea came in at Keauhoti and
Apua, and carried away all the houses. At Keauhou
the natives escaped by running. It is feared that the
natives at Apua were not so fortunate.
The banks around the crater of Kilauea have
caved in at several places, and cracks are opening
around the Volcano House. The crater is very active,
and it is rcortcd that the old craters to the east of
Kilauea have oicncd anew, llcports come in that
lava is flowing at Kahuku and on Kona.
To-day fur the first time we have seen a heavy
column of smoke from MauuaLoa. The chimneys on
all the plantations are dowu except the 1'aukaa."
Captain How laud states that 'when the heavy shock
occurred, ut four o'clock Thursday afternoon, he was
walking from the residence of Capt. Thomas Spencer
towards his store, and had accomplished about half
the distance when he heard the leaves in an adjoining
banana grove rustling, as he supposed from wind,
ami while looking at them a wall near him fell, and
presently he was thrown from his feet.
The sea came up to the door of Captain Spencer's
store, making a rise cf about ten feet above high
water mark. In several parta of the town cracks
have opened in the roads from one to eight inches in
From Keauhou we learn that Mr. Stackpole, who
has charge of J. C. King's pulu station at present,
had started on horseback for the Volcano House, and
bail reached the pali overlooking the village when he
felt the shock, ami looking back saw the sea come in
and carry out in one sweep the houses and other
material stored in the village, consisting of about
one hundred and fifty bales of pulu, the presses used
in packing it, canoes, boats, &c. The loss will be
quite heavy. Fortunately no lives were lost.
Mr. Porter, who has charge of the Volcano House,
at the crater of Kilauea, had left the house and gone
into Hilo, considering it unsafe to remain. Kilauea
was very active, nearly the whole floor of the crater
being in active motion. Natives report that the lava
in Kilauea wa& receding very fast, and that the line
of craters east and south from Kilauea, further down
on the slope, were smoking.
Another rumor says that a large ravine had opened
on the Blojie above the crater reaching across the road
to Kau, rendering it impassable, and still another
ravine from Ihe crater to the line of lesser craters
lx-kiw, cutting off the road to Tuua.
A native who came down with Capt. Howland, says
that a woman wna killed on the beach at Ouoiuca
by the falling of rocks from the pali above.
As to the eruption on Mauna he a we have no par
ticular account, but have beeu permitted to make the
following extracts from a letter dated, Kona, March
2Mb, as pertinent to it :
Yesterday morning March 27th, we had a glori
ous sight from our verandah. About twenty minutes
before six o'clock we discovered on the summit of the
mountain an iiiiineii-ie mass of smoke rising high in
the firmament with high pillars resting ujn.u it. In
less than half an hour vast columns of smoke were
rising in a southerly direction, to the distance of ten
or fifteen miles. This continued to increase, extend
ing south towards Kau, as it appeared to us, uutil the
mountain was shut in by clouds."
Capt. A. Hussell was on board the King's Yacht, at
anchor cfl the south side of Lanai on Wednesday
night, IstTiust., and iu forms us that he repeatedly
saw fire through the clouds resting on top of Mauna
Loa, at times resembling forked lightning.
Natives report a lava flow running down over Ka
huku,on the south-west blope of the mountain.
We copy the following from the letter of Uev C. Q.
Williamson to the Gazelle:
The following list I copy from my Piary, which,
along with my wntch, I have kept at hand, so that I
might I as accurate as possible in my statement.

Si pkeme CornT. The April term of the Supreme
Court opened on Monday, and the sessions have con
tinued through the week with the exception of yes
terday, it being Good Friday. There has been an
unusual number of criminal cases brought in guilty
by the jury. The following may perhaps be of inter
est to the public. The Crown r. AhfoO, assault ou
J. II. Wood with a deadly weapon ; verdict guilty.
The Crown rs. Lohiau, arson, the case being the
burning of a cooper's shop, at Kaalaea, guilty. The
King r. Keakui, forgery of a tax receipt to the
amount of five dollars, guilty. The Crown r Kaili
kala, perjury as witness iu a case tried before (tolice
court of Belling liquor to natives, verdict guilty. A
ease of embezzlement comes up to-dayof a Chinaman,
Aclicw, entrusted with funds to convey from Kauai
to a firm in Honolulu. On Monday there will be
several interesting civil cases, viz.. Hall & Son,
IV.lles & Co , T. C. Heuck aud J. M. Smith, each vs.
McCandlcs-8, Paty and II. Mclntyre, as of the firm of
McCandless & Co., the question being whether Mr.
Mclntyre was a member of the firm. Also the case of
Makulu vs. Petero, to recover damages for crim. con.;
being the first case of this sort for several years and in
fact almost the ouly case among Hawaiions yet brought
up in this court.
The Past Week has been Holy Week ou the calen
dar of the Ritualistic Churches. The bells of the
Cathedral were ringing vigorously on the morning of
Thursday, aud on the succexling day, Good Friday,
the Government Offices and many of the stores in town
were, closed iu remembrance of the passion of our
Lord, an observance which though rather strange to
a large portion of our people, is perhaps less uncalled
for because many of our foreign residents were always
at home accustomed to notice the day. To-morrow is
Easter Sunday, which is sometimes even in Protestant
Churches made occasion of appropriate exercises.
With it closes the season of Lent.
Business the past week has been most remarkably
dulL Save for the session of the Supreme Court, and
the news from Hawaii, there has been no excitement
The Wahwjck. The new schooner just completed
by D. Foster & Co., for Capt. Jacob Brown as a coast
er, is a fine specimen of work, being more thorough
ly built than vessels of our fleet generally are. She
will soon be placed upon the route vacated by the
loss of the pioneer If"arui"cA-, and we trust will
prove a good investment.
From Hanalei we learn that a scow load ot
sugar, belonging to the Princefille Plantation, and
which was moored at the landing on the river, had
been carried out to sea by a freshet which occurred
suddenly during the night Some three hundred
kegs of sugar were in the scow at the time.
Fountain. A neat circular basin has recently been
constructed in front of the school house at Punahou
with a fine jet from the fountain in the centre. It is
quite a relief to the exposed front of the house aud an
addition to the appearance of the grounds. These
are steadily improving from year to year, and present
still a largo scope for the exercise of taste in landscape
gardening, whicli we presume only awaits the bestowal
of more extended means by some public spirited
wealthy individual, to show itself to the satisfaction of
the friends of the school.
The Town Clock. The clock of the Stone Church
was observed the other day to have stopped which
wo are happy to say has beeu a very rare occurrence
for a year or two past It seems that the earth
quakes of last week so bent various parts of the ma
chinery, unbalancing the hands, and loosening screws,
that the whole finally came to a stand-still, and con
siderable difficulty was experienced iu setting the
time piece in working order again. This however
was soon accomplished by Mr. Kawson, it being first
necessary, in order to fix the hands on the north side,
to hold a boy suspended by a rope at rather a ticklish
height above the stone steps below.
Picnic. On Tuesday evening a moonlight picnic
was given at Waikiki by Mr. II. Waterhouse to a
large company of the young people of the town. The
air was a good deal softened down from the sharpness
of previous evenings, but just cool enouh to enable
the company to enjoy the entertainment and the out
door games of the evening to the highest degree.
Every thiug went off well, save that the moon was
very slow in coining out from behind the heavy clouds.
The usual gay riding parties formed the fitting sequel
to the eveuing's socialities.
Fire. On Thursday evening an alarm of fire was
raised in Nuu.iuu Valley, upon which the members
of the Olympic Club left their Hall, and discovered
that the cook-house of the. Hon. G. Rhodes had caught
fire, and flames were just issuing from the roof. The
Asoistaut Foreman of the Hose Co. Xo. 1 , entered the
building, and seeing a boiler ot hot water on the stove,
dashed it ou the flames. The application of a few
more buckets of water soon stopped what might have
been a serious fire. There was no one on the prem
ises at the time.
Olympics. The third entertuinment in behalf of
the Building Fund of the Honolulu Olympic Club,
will take place next Friday evening, April 17th, at
the Hall on Xuuauu Avenue, when Rev. Geo. Mason
will read selections from Shakespeare's sublime drama
of" Hamlet." Tickets may be had next week.

FROf.1 THE VOLCANO!
GREATEST ERUPT10X 0 RECORD !
One Hundred Lives Lost!
! Whole Villages Desfroyed !
Several Lava Streams Flowing.
Ittcr from the Editor.
Kealakeakva Bav, April S 12 if.
We reached here this morning at 9 o'clock to
find a scene as our hitherto favored islanda Lave
not witnessed eince the feet of foreigners touched
The earthquake of Thursday afternoon, which
was felt so distinctly on Oaliu, Maui und Kauai,
destroyed many live?, and even whole village.
At Ilonoupo, (which is midway between AVni
ohinu and Punuluu,) eiiteen natives wore killed
by the earthquake and tidal wave which followed
it, and swept them off into the sea. Only two
houses iu the village were left standing.
At Kealualu, (the port of Waioliinu,) several
lives were lost by the tidal wave.
At Punaluu, three deaths from the same cause.
The village of Waiohinu is all in ruias, and about
twenty lives are reported aa lvist.
All the churches in the Kau district (except one
or two frame house) are prostrated.
Mr. Pogue estimates the deaths iu the Kau dis
trict, as heard from, at over one hundred.
Iu Paliuka (a few miles beyond "Waiohinu,
there were twenty deaths from the earthquake and
13 from the tidal wave 33 in all.
Charles N. Spencer and family, Capt. Haley
and family, Mr. Vidu, Rev Mr. Paris and family,
Mr. Logan and family, and probably others go
down to Honolulu in the steamer, considering it
unsafe to remain in this district. Mr. Pogue and
family have not left Kau, but will probably go
down in the schooner Kona Packet.
The eruption or lava flows commenced yebter
day, and one stream is flowing into the sea about
half way between Kapua and the South Point.
Another stream is flowing on the Puna side,
that is said to consist of mud and sulphurous
water. only. Mr. Lyman aud family have left for
Our company will start to-night in a sloop now
lying here and sail down the coast, as we deem it
Bafer than to go overland, and as more likely to
furnish the best view. We hope to find the lava
stream to-morrow flowing into the sea. We Bhall
then go on to Waiohinu, so as to see and report
from actual observation the condition of things.
If a party comes up next week, the steamer
should be engaged to take them on to Alualu har
bor (the port of Kau) from whence they can visit
the lava streams either north or east of that point.
Travelers, however, must be prepared to " rough
it" and Bleep anyirJiere and eat anything, as prob
ably no foreigners will be found in the district.
At midnight (last night) we could clearly see
the lava stream from the steamer, flowing down
the mountain side, and the whole mountain illu
minated as if a large city was burning.
1. S. A person just in from Kau, near Ka
huku, brings the following authentic report of the
killed nnd drowned : at Paliuka, 33 ; Makaka,
13 ; Punnluu, 4 ; at Honoapo, 27 ; Kamilo, 3
total 80. More probably will be found missing.
The greatest consternation exists through the
entire Kau district, and even here in the Kona
district. But as the shocks have sensibly de
creased, and the flows have begun, it is probable
that the worst is over.
The tidal wave referred to is stated by the na
tives to have been some ten or twelve feet above
the usual height. Then it receded at least eighteen
feet (throe fathoms) below low water mark. The
great return wave swept most of the houses from
the beach and drowned many. The sea rose and
fell eight different times.
This whole island is enveloped in smoke, so tltat
it is impossible to see over two or three miles in
any direction, and at times hardly half a mile.
We may be compelled to go on around to Hilo,
but shall hope to get hack to this point in time
to meet the next week's steamer.
At Waiohinu, on the road to Kiolakaa, h crack
has opened from one to seven feet, extending to
the beach and inauka as far as the eye can reach.
One remarkable feature of this is, that the end of
the road, at the chasm, are not opposite each oth

Waiohixc, Kau, Hawaii, April 3, 18C8.
Dear Sir , Kau is in mourning. The glory is
departed. Tlte Lord's hand is upon us. Our
village is almost in ruins. As I wrote to you in
my lat we were having a succession of earth
quake shocks. These continued in number and
strength. Yestcrda, at a quarter to 4 o'clock,
we liad a shock which sent destruction and death
throughout the district. As many as twenty
deaths liave been reported, but I think this may
j lie exaggeration. By a tidal wave sixteen were
said to have been swept away and lost from ore
village. This may le so, but 1 doubt the truth
of the statement. All our churches are prostrated.
Our house is a erfect wreck. We have left it
and moved into the house built by Capt. Crane.
Last night there was a report that a flow of
lava was coming down" upon us at Waiohinu,
which caused us ll small and" grar native and
foreigners to leave the place. This proved,
however, to be ineorrectv No such tir'lViT' wan

To the Editor cUte Pacific Cbmmerciat Advertiser:
Aa article in your issue of the 21st March, under
the caption, " A Noble Marquesan Mother, has .
just arrested my attention. This woman is worthy
of all praise, having been the chief rust rumen t in the
preservation of Mr. Whalou's life. The ctatement,
however, that her conduct has never been reward
ed," is not altogether correct Mr. Bartholomew
Nagel, one of the parties concerned in the lilieration
of Mr. Whalon, received, as his reward from Presi
dent Lincoln,' a fowling piece and a cum of money
I forget now the amount The fowling piece he re
tained, as his name had been inscribed on the stock ;
the money he put into the hands of one of the French
priests at Nuuhiwa to be spent in the purchase of
suitable dresses for the Marquesan woman in ques
tion. I presume that she has received them ere this.
In justice to Mr. Nagel, I felt bound to make thia
correction, and am only sorry the lie v. Mr. Kaukau
had not the forethought, and followed. his example
at the time. J. Bicksell.

The quakes commenced a little before noon, and set
the whole country rattling. They haven't done yet.

one, there would have been a grand crash.' As it Is,
the vacuum pan has a very perceptible sway, and
the tall ' iron ' chimney vibrates ' like a ' topey turvy

before) these being more - deliberate, stronger Taut
