Jafaxess Ambassadors. B the papers received
Thursday, we learn that Japanese Embassy to these
blands had arrived at San Francisco, and may be
expect! here by the steamer Idaho. Am to the
character or objects of the embassy, we have as
yet no definite advices ; but it is probably designed
to look after the Japanese laborers employed here, and
initiate more intimate diplomatic relations between
the two countries, which are now near neighbors,
and every year developing new commercial inter
course. The Jtlta has the following relating to the
Tub JinsBi Embassy. Yesterday we announced tbear
rival of aa colaajr from Japan to I be Hawaiian Islands, which
ouaipriard several llluttrkme personages. One of the distin
jruisiied neaibers is no less than a Prince of the Mood royal.
Ilia name is Sadowara. iiia brother, nntucsa Matooosin. ac
oucnnaules him. These two. atlentied by a couple of hitch of
ficers, will detach themfelvea from the diplomatic part ot the ;
embaaay, aaJ proceeded to new orK. wiM-rethey will enter
some iaalilutioo of leaminc as papils. and graduate iu the Kuj:
tiah lanrua?e. The officers, who will remain with them, are
firayoma Taro arid M!i(tooche Sor- The diplomatists are
named Wooyrn Kaalotnokami aod Mirra Tiunryechi. Yester
day, the entire embassy, with aa interpreter, visited Mr. Yang
bsa's xallery. on Third street, and hail their photographs taken
laa"crap. When the negative of the picture was exhibited to j
them, they serm highly plessed. The Prince's brother discover- J
lug a small smut spot uear the cod of his nose, ratlul attention I
toil. Mr. Yaughan assured him that it would I obliterated
wbea tbe picture was printed, with which explanation he
seemed to be aalisfled. Tbe attending officers carried swords,
and were In Japanese costume. The lrince and bis brother
were drrsaed a a aterteaas, and were withxit swords. The
cuun pvij cxnwu uie Dtauucn m true gcunnonif auu mm uui, ,
are worthy the resiectof our citisens.
Cokcxxte. Tbe employment of this material for
building purposes, is becoming quite common. It is
found to be cheaper, and quite as durable as quar
ried stone. In recent English journals, it is re
ported to be coming into extensive use in the rural
districts, as the best and cheapest lAaterial for farm
bouses and barns. The theory has recently been
advanced, and very plausibly supported, that many
of the stupendous monuments of antiquity, tbe
mau.ier of transporting which has been a puzzle to
moderns, were built of concrete. Mr. Osborne, the
principal builder of this city, makes excellent con
crete from the volcanic rock of the hills, reduced to j
a proper rise and mixed with cement. It may be j
seen in the front of Castle & Cooke's recent addition '
to their store on King street, and will enter largely
into the construction of the new post-office building,
shortly to be erected.
nkral of a IIoat Kot. The members of En
gine Company No. 4 turned out ou Wednesday to
attend the funeral of Piikuahiwi, one of their or
ganization. The deceased was better known as a
boat boy, and for years was employed by the pilots
as boa t-s tee rer. Scarcely a vessel has visited this i
port during fifteen years ast which has not been j
boarded by him. He was for a long time the author
ized boatman of the post-ofiice, to receive and bring i
ashore the mails. His skill us a boat-sU-erer was j
often remarked by those who accompanied him, for j
he would not unfrcqucatly approach a vet-eel which

Stormy, accompanied with frequent rain showers, the
wind at times blowing a gale, and interfering with j
the movements of coasters. The impression prevails J
that we shall have a stormy and wet winter, and
thus far the weather sustains that opinion. It is the '
strong south winds which bring us the rains that tell
most in favor of growing crops, and this is the sea
son when a Kona storm may be looked for. Those

Map or tue World. A few of the fine German
maps of the world on rollers, published in Gotha,
have been received at the Advertiser office. They
are the most recent and complete maps ever con
structed, and should be in every family. Besides the
usual divisions of land and water, they show the wind
and tide currents, telegraph and railroad, and all the
principal steamship routes around the world. A more
comprehensive and instructive map has never been
New Hawaiian Testament. The American Bible
Society of New York has recently printed a new
II edition of the Hawaiian Testament and Psalms in
agate type. It makes a handy pocket volume, such
as has been needed here, and is bound in various
styles, from plain roan at 50 cents a copy, to extra
morocco gilt at $1.75. It can be had at the book de
tiosUory of the Hawaiian Evangelical Association,
under the 8 tiler's Home.
His Majesty's Birtii-dat. To-day is the thirty-
ninth anniversary of the birth of His Majesty
the King, and will as usual be observed as a national
holiday, and government offices will be closed. The
IIouolulu Rifles, CapUin Charles T. Gulick, will
parade for the first time in public with their new and
showy uniform. The festivities commenced with a
ball at the Court House, but the early hour at whioh
we go to press prevents an extended account.
ZB" The Ladies Benevolent Society will meet at
their new rooms, in the basement of the Fort street
church, cn Tuesday evening. December 14. Supper
will be served during the evening. An admission fee
of fifty cents will be charged, and the avails of the
evening applied towards defraying the expenses of
fitting up the rooms.
Qctkt. Why is it that the tower for the fire alarm
bell makes no progress towards erection? Several
months have elapeed since we were confidently told it
was going up right away, but so far, nothing but a
big pile of dirt obstructing Garden street from the
excavation for a foundation, nas beeu accomplished.
I Admiralty Cask. Last Tuesday, one John Kelii
lAanakaole, a seaman on board the ship Julian during
the last season month, brought suit before Judge
Hartwell for damages against the master and first
officer, for alleged ill treatment On Wednesday the
court gave a decision in the case, awarding damages
to the plaintiff in the sum of 875.
f Collision. The whaling bark OAt'o in going out
T of the harbor on Wednesday came in collision with
the .Yareiifo and stove two boats. Tbe Marengo
was not damaged, having lowered her boats in time.
At the time of the accident, the OAi'o was in tow of

A Grajtd 8ucce8Sj The receipts of the Mechanics'
Institute Fair, recently held in San Francisco,'
amounted to 861,500, tbe expenses, 827,000 ; and'

TLe J ait mail from the Eastern States brings the sad
intelligence of the death of the Rer. IL Bingham,
Sea., at .New Haven, Connecticut, on the 11th of
j November. He died of tjphoid pueumonia, after an
! illness of bat three dajs, at the advanced age of eight jr
i years. Mr. Bingham was one of the pioneers of the
who reached these islands in
j Maroh, 18l"0. The health of his wife rendered it
i necessary fur him to return to America in 1840,
, 8;nce which time he had not revisited these islands.
jt naa been hoped, however, that he would be able
to attend the Semi-Centenary Celebration or the
establishment of Christianity, next June, in this
place, and a formal invitation had been sent him by
i the Board of the Hawaiian Evangelical Association.
He would have received an enthusiastic welcome,
bad he lived and beeu able to come ; but his name
will te none the less remembered and revered by the
Hawaiian churches, and the Hawaiian nation, who
owe so much to him and his fellow laborers.- The.
fiftieth anniversary of the sailing of the first company
of Missionaries was celebrated but a few days before
Skarchiso fob. WATtat The instinct, as it has
sometimes been called, of the root if trees in se inch
ing for underground deposits of water, was well
illustrated recently, in this city. The old reservoir
at the intersection of Hotel and Alakea streets, near
the Theatre, was recently opened for inspection and
repairs, when it was found that the roots of various
trees growing on the adjacent premises tamarind,
algeroba and s&mang had penetrated through the
stone and cement walls of the cistern, and formed a
j complete mat of interwoven fibres. The cistern was
quite empty of water, and will be repaired.

Folly of Pktlemapbf-ra. mm Exhibited is, Teat
I am not about to inflict a long e&tay on this sub
ject ; but only to point out briefly one or two in
stances of this folly. A popular text book is before
me ou Natural Philosophy. On the subject of gravi
tation the writer eays, "The stone and the earth
really move towards each other. As the stone is
drawn towards the earth, so is the earth drawn to
wards the stone."
Drop a stone from a balloon a mile from the earth's
surface, and the earth really moves to meet it. This
is the assertion of our philosopher ; and he says
nothing about the size, or the weight of the stone.
Really moves ! Wonderful ! Would he not be ter
ribly frightened if he should hear that a few hun
dred barrels of gun-powder were to be exploded in a
mine ! Would there not be great danger that the
earth would be driven so far from her orbit that she
would never get back !
In the same text book is the following, " Archi
medes said that if he could have a lever long enough,
aud a prop strong enough, he could move the world
by his own weight. He would have required, says
Dr. Arnot, to move with the velocity of a cannon
ball for millions of years to alter the position of the
earth by the small part of an inch." And yet the
earth really moves to meet a lallen stoue ! Believe
it who will.
Archimedes said : Give me where to stand, and
I will move the world ;" but when did our philoso
pher learn that he ever said anything about a lever
long enough, &c.f Just as though Archimedes
knew nothing about any of the mechanical powers
except the lever ! I am tired of such humbuggery
in text books fur schools. - .

Chicago, Nov. 23. Washington specials say the
President has expressed himself quite definitely,
within a day or two, to several financial friends,
concerning tbe questions of taxation and a return
to specie paynieut-p. lie said he bad been repre
sented as favoring u continuance of all the present
rates of taxation, with tbe idea of enabling the
Trasury tu reduce the debt rapidly ; he really
believes, however, that the time has come for re
lieving the great agricultural and laboring inter
ests from njguy of the taxes now imposed, and
lighten the load upon other classes in many partic
ulars. He thinks there can be a still further reduc
tion made of the public expenses, which will go a j
gooa way lorwaru onseiung toe reauceu receipts
from taxes. In regard to resuming specie payments
the President said that while his desire to accom
plish this has not been overrated he was free to
say that the way to secure a speedy resumption
did not seem clear to him ; be thought it would be
necessary to bring it about by such a plan as
would make the losses occasioned by it fall as
equally ns possible upon all classes, l or the pres
ent, he thinks tbe leap to specie payments would
be disastrous, and he is inclined to believe that, if
the Secretary . of the Treasury is enabled to go on
with the present rates of buying bonds and selling
gold, before a great lime has passed, gold will
drop, when specie payments can be resumed with
out much difficulty.
Nkw York. Nov. 23. Specials say the Spanish
Government has made a formal demand for thirty
gunboats now in New York harbor.
New York. Nov. 24. The Spanish gunboats were
not seized yesterday, owing to a non-completion of
the necessary documents. The libelling affidavits
are made by Senor Altaro, of the Cuban Junta, who
charges that the gunboats are intended to make
war, not only ou the established Government in
Cuba, but also on Peru. Tbe gunboats are still
under the surveil lance of the Navy, uud probably
will be taken possession of by tbe Marshal to-day.
It is stated that the Cuban Junta place great re
liance on tbe action or Congress, and are highly
encouraged by numerous petitions being signed by
American people, praying for tbe recognition of
Cuba by tbe United States, in addition to memori
als which have been signed by thousands iu New
lork, Boston. Philadelphia and other cities through
out the country. A monster petition has just been
started by tbe ladies of Baltimore, t be signed
only by ladies. Four thousand signatures have
been signed in that city alone. Tbe Junta state if
they can do no more than secure the detention of
tbe gunboats till Congress meets, they will be con
tent, as they feel that among tbe first acts of Con
gress will be a formal recognition of Cuba. Letters
received by tbe Juuta from Havana state that five
Spanish war vessels are about to proceed from
Cuban waters to New York.

question or detail, to be settled by tbe constructors

have redeemed their promise the canal is open

office, at least until the meeting of the Chambers.
wLeti men may be required to initiate new relations
between the Government and Legislature. Whether
their appointment will precede or follow the open
ing of the Chambers, or whether they will result
from Imperial preference or a Parliamentary vote,
it is of little consequence. The Legislature, if
true to itself, will always have a last word on the
subject. It is for the Legislature to enlighten the
sovereign to bring its wishes to bear ou him, and
impose them, if necessary, upon him.

rived at Port Said to-day, where she was received

and assisted at a Te Deum and Mnsselman prayers,

works on sea and shore took place.
Ismama. Nov. 17. The Imperial yacht Aigle,
with tbo Empress, followed by forty vessels, an
chored at Isinalia, having passed through the first

Loxdox, Nov. 1 7. The following de-patch was
received from the Isthmus of Suez, Ismalia, on
Wednesday night: "The first detachment of tbe
fleet, with visitors, made Port Said, from this place,
in S hours. Four Bteamera havo just arrived from
Suez, the southern terminus of the canal, from
Port Suid. The town on the banks of tbe canal
and all tbe vessels are illuminated ; the night i
given up to festivities."
Ismalia, Thursday, noon. Thirty-four steamers
have arrived ; others are expected. At shallowest
point between Ismalia and Port Said, tbe water ot
the canal is 19 feet deep ; it is generally from 25
to 30 feet along the whole line. The festivities are
continued with great mngnificence. There are im
mense crowds of visitors from all parts of tbe world
here. The number of guests that have beeu
specially invited exceeds 3.000 Europeans and 25.
000 Orientals. The expenditures of money is un
limited. Tbe entire fleet starts to-morrow.

board, arrived at Suez without accident.
SfEz, Sunday (via Alexandria) Nov. 21. The
Inauguration fleet of forty-five steamers arrived
here. None were obliged to employ pilots. The
only difficulty they had was owing to their num
bers : some were crowded upon the banks of the
canal several times, but got off without trouble,
the sandy bottom neither holding nor hurting them.
On leaving Ismalia several steamars fouled each
other, but no serious damages was done. Tbe
water in the canal between this point and If malia
is full twenty feet deep at the shallowest spot. In
several parts it is less than twenty-five feet, but at
all these points the bottom can be easily deepened.
A steamer drawing fifteen feet can navigate from
Port Said to Suez with ease in fifteen hours. The
water don't wash away tbe banks as much as was
apprehended. Tbe complete success of tbe great
work exceeds all expectations. Tbe arrangements
for transportation and taking care of visitors here
are generally excellent.
Parih. Nov. 23. Tbe Journal Officiel has tbe fol
fowing despatch from Port Said : The Imperial
yacht Aigle, with the Empress on board, and
