; jQ onjcr t,, t ar r.rteiiltion of the ilflrwrUliCC
their oLJeet atnl nature. The problem pre ora
tory to all celestial uieaauremeiits it to aeeertain
the size of the earth itelf. This, we need not
mit, is done hj actual measurement, in miles or
HM.tr eo, of a git en are or fraction of tlie earth's
circumference. The diameter of the earth, thus
ascertained, is taken as a bar! line with which to
triangulate to the heavenly bJies and ascertain
their distance, la the cate of the mxn this can
be done ; also, with some decree of accuracy, in
the case of Venus and 3Lir when those two
planets are nearest the earth. But to triangu
late directly, say to some j articular spot on the
surface of the son, is found to be impossible ;
while the distance to the sun is a Tery important
element. Without it, it is impossible to obtain
either the distance or size of any heavenly body
except tho"o above-mentioned. Given this unit
of lucaeureitK-nt, and the dimensions of the whole
visible universe are in the range of man's knowl
edge; estimate it wrongly, and tle whole as
tronomT is a falsehood.
A very rare celestial phenomenon furnishes the
means of knowing precisely how large the earth
a pi cars wiien seen from the sun, and hence of
deducing from the earth's diameter its dictanec
from the sun, on the same principle that we may
knovr precisely how distant a ole just six feet
high is from the eye, by measuring the angle it
subtends. This phenomenon is the Transit of
the planet Venus across the sun's disk, which
happened last in 17CQ, and will occur again in
1374 and abo in At such a transit the
planet is seen to enter on the eastern edge of the
sun's disk and travel slowly across to tlie western
edge, occupying some hours in the pasagc. As
the planet is at only about one third of the dis
tance to the sun, any one can tec, by a little re
flection, that different observers on different parts
of the earth will sec the planet on different parts
of the sun's disk. Almost every parlor Las a
circular molding in tltc centre of the ceiling. If
not, stick a round piece of paper there. Call
that the sun. Suspend from it by a thread a
small black ball. Cull that Venus. Set a ter
restrial globe directly beneath on the floor, which
will cf ciiro b- earth. From the eastern
sid? ofthe pi Iw ttiv- black ball will appear much

Criti."!: fiovemmcne to take the first accurate ob
se. taliona of I'll-, 'and. while other observers
went to LnjLi K! Astronomers liave for some
tiuio U'i'K t.rd tLr . there were slight errors in

w'T? be n tfi- .it in 1374, to correct them
Perhaps wc ow why Honolulu is one of the
two most available and important stations for the
observations of that vear. Venus enters the
sun's disk at 14 hours past noon of Greenwich
time on Dec. 8. It is then noon at Queensland,
Australia. Tlie declination of the sun is 23
south. That is the latitude of a point on tlie
coast of Queensland, and there the sun will be
vertical on that day. Now elevate the eouth
pole of the globe 23 , and bring Queensland to
the brass meridian. The disk in the ceiling of
the room will then truly represent the position of
the eun at that time. AU that part of the globe
bencatu the wooden horizon will not see the phe
nomenon at all. Honolulu is two hours above the
wooden horizon. Tlie sun will therefore bo two
Lours high at this place. Venus enters on the
X. . side of the sun's disk, and Honolulu, in
that position of the globe above specified, is on
the N. . side, and is the point on the earth
where the transit will commence the soonest and
where tlie most difference of position to the west
ward will be observed. It stands therefore No. 1
on tho list of places for observation, and Prof.
Airy has given it that place ; only, buried in the
depths of the Greenwich Observatory, be persists
in the name Woaboo," and does not know that
a line of steamers connects this port with the
civilized world. The opposite place for observa
tion is Kerguelen's Land. Mauritius is more
easily accessible and, being for practical purposes
nearly as good as the above-mentioned point, will
probably be chosen.
Now to make this point, (Honolulu,) properly
available, the precise longitude of a well-fitted
observatory on shore should be ascertained. If
the Bi itinh or American Governments, or both,
would assist in the establishment of a good per
manent observatory here it would be a benefit,
not only in the matter in question, bat to tlie
cause of science in general. Punabou would be
an excellent locality, and for various reasons.
An observatory is always best out of town, be
cause facilities for adjusting meridians are more
at command ; tlie re is less dust ; there is less jar
ring from passing vehicles; and less interruption
from visitors. The neighborhood of an institu
tion of learning would be a mutual advantage.
An observatory should possess an equatorial
telescope worth say $2000, an astronomical clock
hich with its fixtures should cost about $o00,
and a transit instrument of six feet focus,
mounted on granite blocks, and to cost about
$1000. $2500 more for a building would make
the sum of $0000 ; not an appreciable expense
for a powerful government. All these above-
mentioned instruments would of course be of no
avail without a competent observer. Five years
is none too long a period to allow for adjusting
everything necessary, and for the important mat
ter of precise determination of longitude. If,
during that period, no submarine cable should be
laid here on the way to China, this should be de
termined, as it was in the case of the Cambridge
and Greenwich Observatories. Good chronome
ters were transferred hundreds of times, by the
Cunard steamers, from one observatory to the
other, and the mean of all the differences in time
taken. After the laying of the Atlantic Cable
the comparison was made instantaneously by the
electric current. The Idaho furnishes the means
tor such transfers of chronometers, but they
would be of little use till a perfect instrument
for regulating local time was established on shore.
It would be well if the attention of both the
British and American Governments were directed
to thi "nbject. The Hawaiian Goremment
might attend to it if it were wealthier. It is an
interesting fact that, as Tahiti was the first
ibcti spot for this magnificent problem in
celestial measurement, Honolulu will be the place
of the second and the most truly accurate
Htcam .Affalri, Probably.
Within the part few weeks a tender has been
made to the Hawaiian Government for supplying
the inter-island steam service, so long needed, and
for which service assistance was provided by the
last Legislature. Tho 6teamer Gcvrge S. WrigtJ,
owned by Jacob Calm and others, of Portland,
Oregon, has been for sotue time running regularly
between that port and Puget Sound. It is ex
pected that a larger vcfsel will soon be completed
to take the pilace of this one in the increasing
traffic of tlie Pacific coast. The George S. right
is a strong, fast projcller, of 341 tons new meas
urement; being probably over 400 by the old
measurement, as contemplated in the Legislative
bill ; built in lbC3, and of excellent model ; and,
from what wc can gather, seems well adapted to
the wants of the Island trade. Persons well ac
quainted with the steamer, arc of opinion that
slie will make tle trip weekly to the Hawaii
ports, Ililo included, with perfect ease.
The owners have offered to put the steamer on
the route mentioned for the subsidy of $1 ,000 per
month. Inasmuch, however, as it will be impos
sible for her again to en tT tlie American coasting
trade, if, having taken tho Hawaiian flag fcbe
sliould prove not to be paying her way, her own
ers request tlie privilege of retaining the
American flag, say for a year, or till the experi
ment lias a fair trial ; or, else, that the Hawaiian
Government should take a share in the ownership
of the vessel itself. say $20,000 of the total val
uation of $45,000.
The Government respond, as we learn through
tlie columns of tlie Gazette, that they will give a
subsidy of$i$33 pr month, which is the propor
tionate amount granted by the Legislature ; also
wharfage and water privilege. They consent to
the retaining of the flag until the matter can be
referred to the Legislature at its next meeting;
and also propose that tlie matter of taking stock
be referred to the same body. This would seem
a fair offer, and we hope it will prove satisfac
tory to the owners. We wish full success to the
experiment, as steam service is such a necessity
to modern civilization, that even some sacrifice in
other matters is desirable in order to secure it.
The re-establishment of quick and regular com
munication will encourage every one having busi
ness on the other islands, and will prove an at
traction to travelers. While wo have full sym
pathy with the owners of schooners, we wish to
repeat wliat we have often remarked before, that
as steam is so nocewtary to modern civilized life,
the business of all classes will be eventually bene
fited by its introduction, and to express tlie hope
tliat all rivalry between steam nnd sail will bo
perfectly liberal and good-natured.
Dr. nayes, the noted Arctic explorer, has re
cently issued on address to tho American copIe,
in which he urges renewed efforts to reach the
North Polo, and discover tho open Polar Sea
which exists there. There seems to be a irrowiii!?
rivalry between various nations, as to which
shall gain the distinguished honor of making
thesxs Arctic discoveries.
Several expeditions are now supposed to bo on
their way north, all of them, liowever, by tho
Atlantic. The Bhcring Straits rontc, which is
unquctionably the most feasible, has not been
followed, owing probably to its distance from the
ports where the expeditions have to be fitted out.
roong other exjeditions, a steam whaler has
been sent out from Germany at the sole expense
of a wealthy citizen of Bremer haven, which,
after icmaining during tlie fishing season off the
Island of Jan Maycn, is, about tho end of June,
to proceed on a voyago of discovery northward
along the eastern coast of Greenland, and en
deavor to discover an opening in tho ice between
the 74th and 7Gth degrees of latitude. If by the
end of August the expedition should not have
succeeded, the vessels will go and pass the winter
cither at Spitzbcrgen or at Gilsland, and resume
the enterprise in 1870.
From English papers, we learn that a privato
expedition to the North Polo will set out this
summer from Glasgow. The explorer who is to
undertake this adventure is Mr. Lamont, late
member of Parliament for Buteshire, and favora
bly known in literature as the author of 44 Sea
sons with the Sca-IIorscs." To win his way to
the Pole is not the sole purpose of Mr. Lament's
enterprise, for ho is an enthusiastic sportsman,
finding bis pleasure in gunning on strange shores.
Ho is a good sailor as well as a diligent hunter,
and has already made a voyage in his own yacht
through tlie Pacific and Atlantic oceans. For his
new expedition he Las fitted out in Scotland, at
his own expense, a steamer of two hundred aud
fifty tons, called the Diana, and has associated
with him gentlemen who can aid him in the j
various objects he has in view. One of these is
Dr. Smith, who not long since returned from tho
Arctic regions, after having been locked in the
ice with a whaler s crew lor many months.
Another is Mr. Hamilton Macallum, a Scotch
artist. Trained hunters of the walrus and other
animals to be met with in the northern seas havo
been engaged in Scandinavia.
In his pamphlet referred to above, Dr. Hayes
discusses the merits of the principal routes, each
of which has its advocates. Tho first his
own choice is that by way of Smith Sound.
By this route the doctor, in 1854, reached the
highest northern land known, (Grinnell Land,)
which he subsequently revisited in 1801. There
be saw the open Polar Sea, and dwelt for months
within the sound of its beating surf the tlier
mometcr at the time ranging as low as 40 be
The route by Bhcring Strait is the second
which he considers. This is championed by some
distinguished names such as General Thomas L.
Kane, and Captain Silas Bent, U. S. N. An ex
pedition by this route could fit out at Honolulu,
enter the straits within fifteen days, and follow
the open sea, wherever found practicable.
On the side of the Pole opposite to Bhcring
Strait, and 10 nearer to it, conditions are to bo
found in the Spitzbergcn Sea similar to those
which exit in Bhcring Strait. The distinguished
German geograplier, Dr. Petermann, favors this
route, and has fitted out his expedition with two
steamers to return to the ground occupied and
abandoned by it last summer.
Tho fourth route is that to the cast of Dr. Pe
tcrmann's, between Spitzbergcn and Nova Zcm
bla. Dr. Hayes regards this route as out of tho
question. All attempts to follow tho current in
tliat direction have been bad failures ; and there
is a strong probability that after the ice lias been
penetrated extensive lands will be found lying to
tlie north and cost, cutting off an entrance to the
We feel confident that an expedition sent out
from this port to proceed through Bhering Strait,
if the season were favorable, would accomplish
more, in the way of discoveries, than any made
either through Smith's Sound or via Spitzbergen.
But perhaps the most novel, if not the most
feasible plan is the following daring experiment
noted by tlte PaU Ma Gazette:
"The invriWe'f;ulure which has hitherto at
tended nautialexpeditions to the Arctic regions has
io'lucedHfo Frenchmen, Messieurs TUsaudier and
vielle. to undertake the enterprise of reacb-
the North Pole by balloon. The machine in
h the bold adventurers are about to embark in
their perilous journey, and which is appropriately
named Le Pole Nord now being completed in
the Champ da Mars, which the Government has
placed at their disposal for tne purpose, ine mon

cubic meters of eas, and is composed entirely of
clotn manufactured from caouicuouc, wmca wui

form a total length of three English miles. The car,
a marvel, it is said, of strength and lishtuess, is
constructed to carry ten passengers, -1,01)0 pounds of
ballast, and provisions for a men to. v e can only
hope this liold enterprise may be attended with bet
ter luck than the aerial flight of the Geant in 1863.
CJilnesto Iabor Convention.
A convention of planters, merchants and others,
met at Memphis, Tennessee, on the 14th of July,
to discuss the question of importing laborers from
China to work on the southern rice, cotton and
sugar plantations. The telegraph advises us that
tho attendance was vcrj large, and proceedings
The convention was addressed by a Chinaman
who had been living two years in Louisiana. He
stated the habits and peculiarities of his country
men ; that the products and climate of China
wero similar to those of the Southern States ; that
they were familiar with the labor required of
them, and that they wero willing and anxious to
migrate to America. He said that over 50,000
Chinese were employed in Cuba, but that much
suffering and poverty prevailed among them there,
which he attributed to their not having been se
lected with proper care.
Mr. Koopmanschap, the Hongkong merchant of
San Francisco also addressed the convention, and
stated that under a five years contract, Chinese
can be procured in Asia for $10 to $12 per
month and tliat they could be taken from Hong
kong to San Francisco for $80 and from San
Francisco to the Southern States for $50. Ho
also stated that his bouse brought 30,000 Chine;
to California, whero 00,000 arc now engaged in
general and railroad work. They were paid ninety
cents to $1 10 per day, in gold, as laborers, and
can be induced to go South for $20 jcr month ;
but they can bo obtained much cheaper in China.
Now for other countries, including these islands,
the Chinese are willing to engage in a five years'
contract for four and Jive dollars per month, with
food and lodging found. But this really amounts
to about tho same as stated by Mr. K., and this
may have been tho idea that he intended to
One result of the convention was the formation
of a joint stock company, with a capital of one
million of dollars, for the purpose of importing
Chinese laborers. A gentleman, Sir. Gift, has
boon appointed agent for this company, to visit
j San Francisco and China in furtherance of tho
objects of the company.
In this connection, the following remarks from
the New York Spectator, ponS3 interest. " In
broken English there is a general cry for Chinese
who can bo broken to service here. Three times
within a week housekeepers in search of "help'
have begged us to encourage emigration from
I M "
In that they think they see the model
j Bcrvant, gentle, faithful, honest, cheap, compe-
tent, shrewd, and a pagan, hence no bother about
the facilities for chureh-jroing. Lrnornnt of the
o o o
language, the Chinese cannot bo an area gossip.
Hostile to innovations he will not adopt our uiod-
j ern inventions or run after them. Quiet, taciturn
and philosophic, he will be content to stay where
he U put and let the world move on, miudless of
where its revolutions may carry him. There is
rrrrflt rMi sm tn .plirvft thnt there will he) n. lnr"f
r " e-
Chincso emigration to this country soon, and that
the California problem will have to be worked
out here. A merchant of this city offers to bring
Chinamen to New York for $75 apiece. His
terms will be accepted if he will land his China
men in Louisiana at Atchafhlnya, from near
which point there is a railroad connection with
New Orleans. The South is quito wide-nwnke to
this emigration. They sec in it a substitute for
the negro, whom, being free, they hate. At
j Charleston they are contracting for 50,000 Chi
namen for the rice aud cotton fields. The Mem
phis Avalanche expects to see 100,000 in the Mis
sissippi Valley in a few years. It hopes to see
the wool give way to the pigtail. It is a fact,
however, that this sort of labor is loss needed at
the South than in other parts of the country
There is labor enough at the South if it bo only
utilized. To procure a substitute for the negro
because he wont work, is to force the negro to
say he cant work, and then there will be hun
dreds of thousands of starving paupers or forced
criminals, with whom tho community must get
on some way. These active and capable Asiatics
will uiako a great change in tho aspect of tho la
bor question, and if they should come in rapidly
and in large numbers they would make themselves
felt at once. Housekeepers hereabouts have faith
that they will at once make a reliable arm of the
In California, in these Islands, in Australia,
and in fact, wherever employed, Chinese make
good house servants, whether as stewards, cooks,
or for out door or garden work. They readily
fall into tho ways of foreigners, learn their lan
guage, and when paid a reasonable compensation,
will seldom leave an employee who treats them as
servants should bo treated. In 6hort they are la
borious, faithful and as trusty as the average of
servants. Wo are not speaking of coolies, but free
Chinese servants. There is no good reason why
the employment of them in America should not
give as much satisfaction as here where they have
been employed nearly eighteen years.
Now Amcriean Postaco Stamps.
The lost two or three mails have brought letters
stamped with tho new issues, which differ from
tho old in shape, size, color and design, and are
quite a novelty in the postage line. Instead of
the old parallelogram, the new issues are square,
and represent besides Franklin the first post
master general, and Washington, the first presi
dent, mostly emblems and incidents in the
history of the nation. The new eliapo adopted
docs not appear, at the first sight, so pleasing as
the old oblong stamps in rose in all countries ; but
tbia may be owing to its novelty.
The new stamps are engraved and printed by the
National Bank Note Company of New York, the
same that issued the beautiful two and five-cent
Hawaiian stamps, which, wo are free to say, are
unsurpassed in design and color, by any issued
by any other nation. They have been admired
abroad as much as here. The American stamps
now comprise ten denominations, from ono to
ninety cents, which are thus described by a New
York paper. Some of tho higher grades, it will
be seen, are printed in two colors :
One cent Head of Franklin, in circular orna
mental scroll. Color, Roman order.
Two cents Postboy on horseback, within orna
mental scroll-work ; printed in light brown.
Three cents Locomotive on track, surrounded by
ornamental scroll-work ; the color is blue, the word
" Postage " in white panel of darker hue
Six cents Head of Washington in square frame ;
Ten cents American shield and eagle, surmount-
ed by stars in the form of a section of a circle, in
clouds, printed in orange.
Twelve cents Steamboat in mid-ocean, in circu
lar frame of ornamental scroll-work ; green.
Fifteen cents The landing of Columbus a min
iature copy of the picture in the rotunda at ash
ing ton. This is beautifully executed and printed in
blue, while the ornamental scroll or frame around it
is cf pale reddish brown.
Twenty-four cents The report of the Committee
to the Continental Congress in 177G on the Declara
tion of Independence. Though of a most diminutive
size the figures are all portraits. This design is
printed green and the ornamental border purple.
Thirty cents On this is again represented the
American shield and eagle, printed in carmine, rest
ing on battle-flags of blue. .
Ninety cents Medallion head of Lincoln, in black,
the scroll-work and lettering being carmine.
