NOTES OF THE WEEK.
fUE CELL ToWEK. This prominent erection
rapidlr approaohing completion, the beU having been
hoisted into its place last Monday, may here
repeat what we stated some time since, that for the
purposes of fire alarm, the Department hare adopted
tbe following regulations: The city of Honolulu,
together with its suburbs, is divided into five fire
wards, Tix : Wards 1 and 3, all that portion north
of Fort street. Wards 2 and 4, all that portion
south cf Fort street. Witrd 5, Teasels in the harbor
of Honolulu. Ward 1, comprises all that portion
north of Fort street and inakai, (or seaward) of
Hotel street. Ward 3, comprises all that portion
north of Fort street and maaka, (or inland) of Hotel
street. Ward 2. comprises all that portion south- of
Fort Street, and makai of Hotel Street. Ward 4,
comprises all that portion south of Fort street and
niauka of Hotel street. The different wards will be
indicated by the watchman in the tower, by distinct
taps of the bell, repeated with the proper pauses so
that the firemen may know at once in which direction
their presence and services are wanted. A map of
the city was drawn some years ago by Mr. Brandon,
who laid down the present main water-pipes from
the Nuaanu reservoir, and upon this is based the
present plan of dividing the city into wards, as
suggested- by First Assistant Engineer Hassinger.
The centre of the city is assumed to be the junction
of Fort and Hotel streets, so that any one can draw
a map for himself, so that the four wards may be
cosily indicated on a pencilled map.
Woman's Rights is Hawaii. A few days ago,
our reporter was taking an early morning walk down
Fort street, when he observed in the increasing light
of dawn, a little way ahead, a couple, a native man
and woman, the man in advance, followed closely by
the woman, the actions of the latter attracting at
once the attention of our snapper up of unconsidered
trifles." She was evidently berating the man in se
vere terms, and without stint of voice, for having
left her bed aud board, and stayed away all night.
The man, with a hang-dog look, walked quietly along,
and answered never a word to his wife's tirade of
abuse. This silence the apparently construed into
giving consent to the truth of her accusations, and it
in consequence added fuel to the flame. So from words
she came to blows. Picking up here and there on
the street a stone as big as one's fist, she followed up
her recreant spouse, and with accurate aim, at point
blank range, hit him some tremendous thuds between
tbe shoulders. At these, he merely winced and kept
meekly on his way, while the "woman scorned"
shouted her execrations louder than ever. At last,
a constable ventured to expostulate, but was told by
the lady to mind his own business. " It was her own
husband, to whom she was lawfully married, and she
had a right to do what she liked with him for neg
lecting his marital duties." Hie policeman subsided
before this strong-minded Hawaiian female, and the
last we saw of the pair, the stronger vessel in this case
the female was beginning apparently to relent, and
having ceased her loud talk and throwing of stones,
was crying bitterly, still following in the wake of her
husband towards their home, bo much tor " woman s
rights in Hawaii." -
Interesting to Agriculturists. A discovery has
Leeu made in England, whereby hay and ce
real crops can be dried and secured during wet
seasons without the ordiniry and precarious delay of
long exposure. It is considered of so much itn
portance and value, that the inventor has received
the rarely-conferred honor of the gold medal of
the Society of Arts, with a prize of fifty guineas,
after due investigation. The "plan is very simple.
and is described to consist as follows : A rapidly
revolving fan, driven by horse or by steam power.
is attached to the smoke-box of a coke furnace, and
(a guage screen intervening) withdraws all the heat
which would be carried up the chimney or shaft and
be wasted, and diffuses it among the grass or grain
exposed to its blast. Grass cut and at once brought
to the mouth of the hot blast is converted in eight or
ten minutes into fine green hay, fit for immediate
sale or consumption. ' Chemists declare that hay or
corn Buffers no deterioration by this quick drying,
but on the contrary, that it is better for it, and con
tains less water than field-dried bay. The intelligent
farmers of England are fast adopting the new inven
tion, and write to the Times from diilerent parts of
the country that the results are highly satisfactory
in every respect. We see no reason why this new
invention may not be introduced in these islands and
be used with advantage in the curing of hay and the
drying of trash for fuel cn our plantations. The
whole working mechanisa and arrangements are
represented as simple and uncostly.
The Lizard and the Spider. Everybody has
heard about tbe spider and the fly
" Will you walk into my parlor, said the spider Io the fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlor you ever did espy,"
and the sensible response of the fly, declining the
polite invitation. There seems to be an irrepressi
ble conflict " between the different orders of animated
creation. Big fishes eat little ones, big animals prey
upon the smaller kinds, and even man, for whose
elevated nature and uses the inferior orders of life
were created, sometimes preys upon his fellow-man.
But without following out this latter train of reflec
tion, we will here mention a little fact in natural his
tory that we witnessed just now while sitting at our
i-Hportorial table, waiting for an idea. Just before us,
on the wall, we noticed a spider, one of those little
agile fellows known as the "tiger spider," whose
mission appears to be to catch unsuspecting flies
The Fpider in this instance was backing away, and
shortly after appeared upon the scene one of the com
mon light brown lizards of the country, following
him up We kept a profound stillness, while lizard
gradually approached spider, who seemed to be mes
merized with terror and quite unab'e to exercise his
usual .lightning-like powers of locomotion. Getting
witlun an men of Ins victim, who made futile at
tempts to turn away to tbe right or left, lizard made
a lion-like spring, and down went spider into lizard's
gullet. Is there not a moral counterpart to this scene
to be found sometimes in human life r
St Patrick's Dat. In this city on Thursday last,
on the " 17th cf Ireland," some of the sons of the
Green Isle, never forgetful of the dear old sod, made
a demonstration in commemoration of their country
by providing a bountiful spread of all the luxuries
in eatables and drinkables that the markets of the
country could afford- Several toasts were proposed
and received the King the day we celebrate
Queen Victoria President of the United States the
Emperor of France all of which were appropriately
responded to. The Company separated at quite an
early hour for Irishmen on the birthday of their
patron saiut, giving three hearty cheers for their
Artistic Mr. King, the photographic artist, has
ehown us some rery fine pictures which be has taken
with his new instrument recently imported at consid
erable expense. Among the pictures are some of Her
Mftjesry Queen Emma, which are certainly very fine.
By advertisement in to-day's paper we learn that he
has secured the services of Mr. Dwyer, an ar
tist of experience, whose pictures have obtained for
him a world wide reputation.
Real Estatc By advertisement, it will be seen
that the lot on the corner of King and Fort streets,
belonging to the estate of the late W. N. Ladd, will
soon be sold. This is one of the best business sites ia
Honolnlu, and the day will come when it will be
worth double what it cost Mr. Ladd. It is not often
that so desirable a locality is offered for sale in this
city... i ,-.
By advertisement in soother column it will be
seen that Mr. Daniel Montgomery hs established
himself in the lumber business. Competition, honor
ably conducted, is the life of trade. We wish the
gentleman success in his Dew enterprise.

' Mark Twain. We noticed last week that Mark
Twain Lad been married, and remembered his friends
at these Islands by sending cards to them. In the
.ilia we find the following, which will interest all
who personally know Mark : "
By the !at mail we received a delicate wok envelope con
taining still more delicate card of a still more delicate pink,

1 would sail through my part. The check ou the bank,
accompanying the gill, was not necessary, for my book and
locturing keep me equal to minor emergencies ! "
A Temperance Speech from Napoleon. We
don't mean the great Emperor, but simply Napoleon
Nihi, native Hawaiian fish dealer of Honolulu, 1
whose stand can be found on the right hand of the
market, going down street. He has been, on several
of the election days of the last preceding years, a
prominent haranguer to the populace, but although
his stentorian voice never faltered or wavered in its
tone, the conviction was forced upon the mind of an
ordinary observer that Napoleon, on those occasions
at least, had been imbibing something stronger than
tea or coffee. So when it became a matter of rumor
that the chronically crapulous fish merchant was ta
give a temperance address on Sunday evening, why
of course, lots of people went to hear, either out of
curiosity or better motives. He gave, however, an
unexceptionable address, displaying all the elocutional
and rhetorical beauties of the Hawaiian tongue. He
urged upon his countrymen the importance of consid
ering the fact that it lays with ihem to stay the
rapidly increasing tide of aboriginal death, now so
apparent, by abstaining from intoxicating drinks'.
We hope Napoleon will confirm the impression made
upon the audience by sticking to the principles he
put forth, and if he does we shall always buy our
fish f him when he has any, at reasonable rates.
YLjterart. Mr. Walter Montoomert arrived on
Monday last from Sydney, on bis way around the
world, and proposes to give several entertainments,
as per advertisement, commencing this evening at
Buffum's Temperance Hall in Hotel street. Prof.
M.'s entertainments consist of readings or rather
recitations from Shakespeare and other well-known
English and American authors. He has given thera
in England and various countries of Europe, and
has everywhere drawn out the most flattering praises.
No person can listen to him for an evening without
gainine instruction, and those who hear him once
will not fail to attend again. It is not often that our
Dublic are privileged with the presence of an artist or
such deserved merit as Prof. M. and we advise all to
go and hear him.
Midway Islaxd. The U. S. Steamer Saginaw
sailed on Wednesday for this island, which is selected
as the coaling station of the China Mail Steamships.
A vessel left San Francisco in February with ma
chinery, dredges and all necessary implements for
dee renin z the channel. The work will be carried on
under the superintendence of the officers of the Sagi
naw, and it is thought there will be no difficulty in
securing at least twenty-four feet depth of water. A
gentleman in San Francisco, who inquired why the
steamers did not stop at Honolulu, was told they
would stop here when the American, flag floats over
the group, and not till then.
High Prices. Potatoes should not be so dear in
Honolulu as they have been the past ten days 3 a
4cts. a pound, or 5.00 to $6.00 a barrel, when we
have thousands of acres at Kohala or ia Kula on
Maui, where they can be raised for $2.00 a barrel.
In San Francisco the price ranges from I.IjO a S2.00
per 100 pounds. We ought to produce every barrel
required for home consumption and for the whalers
besides. The famine prices paid here now are suffi
cient to drive everybody out of the place.
Of Some means should be devised of checking the
lawless propensities of the persons who seem to take
special delight in defacing street names, sign-boards,
and even of entering private premises and disturbing
ornaments and plants. If nothing else will stop it, a
few days in the chain gang most certainly will. Let
us hear no more of these capers.
XST The bark Ethan Allen and TJl S Sloop of War
Jamestown were to leave San Francisco on or about
March 12th, and will bring mails. The clipper ship
Genloo would follow, leaving about March 20.
Egf" The bark D. C. Murray will sail for San
Francisco in all next week and take a mail. Files of
the Advertiser can be obtained in wrappers, ready
By the arrival of the American bark Sarah, we
have later dates from San Francisco. The follow
ing are among tho most interesting items received:

United States corvette Oneida recently near Japan,
and the latter was sunk with a loss of one hundred

schools. The action was to dissolve an injunction

instruction from public schools was contrary to the
