baa favored ttie public with several readings of
classic authors. Like the visit of Mad&ine Anna
Bishop four yean ago, his is purely accidental.
In this way, we are sometimes favored with tho
presence of artists of whose wonderful performan
ces we read and often loug to bear, and whom
princes in older countries 44 delight to honor.'
Irof. Montgomery is a true cosmopolitan, hav-
! mg been born on Long Island, Of tnglioll and
parentage, and made the wide world, as
it were, his home. Having attracted the notice
of the lai? Charles Kean, he was invited to make
a three years engagement, but declined this very lib
eral ofl'er, preferring to study Shakespeare on his
own account. I li career commenced iaHnirland,
f.t , . , ,
And wherever he went he met unbounded
, appiauee. in London, for instance, he apT)eared
on tne stage nignts, ana in irurty-seven dijjerent
character. The secret of Lis succcbs is the origi
nality of his various impersonations, whether he
appears in the sterner cLuics or more humorous
comic selections. But in all these he is perfectly
home, chaDging bid peraonalxtj, voice, features
i and character so suddenly as to take his audience '
by surprise. In the language of one of the Fac
U"J Oxford University" lie IS a thorough
I master of his art. His elocution is perfect, and
his actions and gestures expressive and chaste in
the highest degree. I think it impossible to bear
him rithout gratification and benefit, and every
member of the University may take a lesson from
such an accomplished member of his profession as
Mr. Walter Montgomery."
lie has given three readings in Buffum's Tem
perance Hall, each of which has been well attended
by as select audiences as have ever assembled in
this city. The success which be has achieved is
as honorable to our community as to this accom
plished delineator of Shakesperian character,"
who, without tbe aid of scenery and gaudy trap
pings, but in plain dress, assumes a variety of
characters really astonishing, and so well executed
as to defy criticism. Whether as Brutus, or the
noisy Roman rabble ; whether as Hamlet solilo-
quizing on human frailty, or Dogberry with his

he is equally at home in each character.
But perhaps the most charming of his perform
ances arc those pieces in which touching pathos
and tender sympathy stir the soul, as in the
! Bridge of Sighs, or Foe's Raven, or what appears
' to be more difficult to execute, Poe's " Bells,"
in which tbe sweet music of sleigh bells, and
: the more thrilling peals of the midnight alarm, are
imitated in a manner truly wonderful.
The audiences have been not only healthily
' amused but instructed by each of the perform-
cujitc, KiviUej atcviuciiuj mo mii. entnu- 1

who is scrupulouhly nice in all the little details,
some annoyance; but we are sure his hearers !
lost ei'sht of the dimness of the Ii-rhts-in their 1
admiration of bis skill as an elocutionist.' '
ItoT. Montgomery '8 greatest effort will be made
; this Saturday evening, and wo publish with
pleasure the accompanying outline of the cnter
j taininent, written by him on a recent occasion,
i However much we may differ from some of his
j views, we cannot but admit tho originality of his
conception, and we shall listen with particular
interest to the unfolding of this wonderful poem,
confident of a refined and careful rendering from
an earnest student of the greatest jocl the world
has ever produced :
M What is tie argument of the play ?"
Weahall know by this fellow P '
Macbeth, a treat chiefuiu ia tlie Highland of
Scotland. i the near kinsman of tbe reigning King,
Duncan, with whom be stands in bin estimation,
bo lb for his personal character and eminent ser
vices in the field of brttle.
Duncan. King of Scotland, has two sons, Malcolm
and Donalbain. the eldest a mere youtb ; and tbus
w? may assume tbat tlie old man was childless, till
late in life, and tbat JJacbelh, his nearest relative,
was. previous to their birth, beir presumptive to
tbe throne of Scotland, with every prospect of le
gitimate siiccfSbUQ. It is exceedingly prubable
tbat this contingency was subject of cuuverse, and
a most interesting theme " between tbe soul
Macbeth and his wife, and the advent of the male
children gave tbe death-blow to this dearly cher
ished bope. It ia evidently in these private con
versations aneot their tutuie tbat Lady Macbetli
reads the character of her lord, and the scenes be
tween them in their first and second meeting give
warrant for tbU assumption, since tbe tenor ot her
remarks refers to scenes between them considera
bly antecedent to tbe period at which ihe tragedy
commences. An opportunity occurs for Lady
Macbeth to use ber mighty mind upon tbe irresolute
Tbane, when be represents himself belore her alter
an interview with three weird wompn," who have
foretold bis past, and prophesied bis future, tbat
future beio? no leg- than the dream of his ambition,
the possesion; of the '.'round and top of sover
eignty." : ... ;'-- ,: .; .;;T
"Lady Macbeth, inspired with affectionate devo
tion for her husband, argues so convincingly with
bim, tbat he consents to', and commits tbe foul
murder that makes the Angel of Tity ride like a
winged courier through tbe universe to drown the
wrnd with tears. .
He now vilely fixes suspicion npon tbe King's,
two sons, who, with many terrified friends, fly tbe
country, and. thai having removed every obstacle
in his way, be asnmes tb sovereignty, and is
crowned King of Scotland, with tbe guilty partner
of bis crime as Queen. - - .
Tbe bloodstained monster now no longer needs a
KjrfCrttioa from his helpmate, but ignoring her very
ezi8if0Ci9 tin -ner aeato momentarily recalls a
glimpse ef U better nature, wades through slanf b
ter to his fate, which occurs as predicted by tbe
witches, and the spirits of darkness, summoned by
their belliab ri(u and lout incantations. . Reading
this poem aa a pfrtnre of human life, we unhesitat
ingly pronounce Mrcbeth villain of tbo deepest
dye ; but tbe supernatural element introduced re
deems bim from tb'3 ncfruAlified castigatioo, whilst

Tito Steamer Kllauea.
It haa been rosplTed on by the administration
to refit the steamer Kilauea, which is now some
ten years old, and has been lying idle in the
harbor for the pest Tear or more. It is said tnai
her hull is sound, and this is no doubt correct,
as she was thoroughly built in the first instance ;
bat a good hull does not make a good steamer,
and to make her such will require an expenditure
of from twenty-fire to thirty thousand dollars, as
her machinery will all have to be made new.
I And when completed, even with tbe beet ot
machinery, what will she be ? simply an old
vessel, which may or may not make as good time
as when she was taken off from the route.
There is scarcely a man living in the group
who will not be benefitted more or less by the
running of inter-island steamers, and who does
not wish to see steam permanently established
here, if it can be done without too heavy a tax
on the people. We believe that the most eco-
! nomical way is to pay a subsidy, even if it be as j
! high as twenty thousand dollars a year. This
; may seem extravajjant, but it is hJ than it has
! ever cost the government to maintain the steamer
per annum, and lets than the service can be done
j uy tne government.
But it may be answered, nobody will under-
j take to give us inter-island steam ; we have been
j waiting two years for offers, and none are made."
J Yes, and we should probably Lave to wait two or
' ten years longer, it no notice is ever published
j of what we want done or are willing to pay for
; the work. Offer a liberal subsidy, publish to I
the world what is wanted, then contract for five j
J or more years, and the chances are the work i
' would be well and cheaply 'done much cheaper
; than government can do it.
: -s we said oeiore, tne administration nas i
1 resolved to lit up the Kilauea. ' If this is the only
way in which we can obtain steam, let us have
i it. Better this than none ; though we pay dearly
i for our whintle. Whatever it may cost, twenty
' five, thirty or forty thousand dollars, is so much
disbursed from the treasury, which would other-
wise be locked up there idle. It will be so much
; added to tho working capital and circulation of
the country. Heaven knows that we are making

this article is one of the new inventions in the

! pear in print. Professor Lowell's new word,
t undisprivaeied," the exnet meaning of which
i one is at first at a lofs to discover, lias been called
i by some one- in a satirical vein, a four story
polypyllable with a French roof."
Many of our readers may remember of having
heard or read of, some years ago, about a French
man, who, arriving in Paris, in 1785, announced '
that be had made a " grand discovery " by which
be had ascertained the means of perceiving the
approach of ships, at a distance, even so far as
j two hundred and fifty leagues, or near a thousand
miles off. He had been living at the Isle of
France for a number of years, and claimed that
he had accidentally perceived, during twenty years
or residence there, that certain phenomena in
the heavens indicated the approach of ships.
Being a man of education, he elosely investigated
these phenomena, and after an immense number
of observations, uncertainties and failures, he ar
rived at a method of reading these observations,
which, though from tbe nature of tbe case it was
not quite certain, was yet so nearly correct as
that, out of ono hundred and fifty-five predictions
of the arrivals of ships, more than half were ab-
solutely correct, while a large part of the rc-
mainaer were BuoHequentiy provea to o3 correct
so far as the passage of the ships, on the days j
and at the distances stated was concerned. Mons. I
liottineau, (for that was his name,) got from the
French Government philosophicaf stciety at that
time, ft nnme for his discovery, and it was dubbed
44 The i.-iencc of Nauscopia." derived from the
Greek, naus, and skupeo, to look alout.) The
j lea mod surans who came to this decision were
! undoubtedly influenced by the following cxplana
I tion by M. Bottineau :
44 Marvelous as this science may appear, it requires neither a
; special organization nor uH;rior talents. All that is wanted
; is a knowledge of a certain physical phenomenon which clr
j eumaiancr have led me to discover. i
M Being in the Isle of Fraoce, twenty years ago. and having
the sea always before my eyes, 1 perceived that tbe arrival ol
, ships was always preceded by a certain pheucmenon of nature,
j and the recurrence of this singularity made tne suspect that
i there might exlt a correspondence between the phenomenon
in question and the passage ol ships. Following up this idea,
I succeeded in discovering :
j. i hat t ma phenomenon was InroDtcstably the result of the I
pasaare of a ship. I
That it bejran to manifest itsdf five or fir dava before the !
arrival of the ahip.
3. That certain variations were caused by the rate at which
tbe ahip moved.
That other variations were caused by the number of tbe
6. Tbat the same principles which showed to the observer
on land the approach of ships were applicable to observers
6. That the phenomenon, with certalo changes, served to
point ont to one ahip the approach of another.
7. That the different variations were perceived by day or
night, in fair weather and foul.
"After passing twenty years In studying these modifications,
I was enabled to classify and arrange them in an infallible
manner, and to compose on this subject a set of principles and
iwrt ructions which inereasiog the sphere of human knowledge,
must produce a science altogether new, and never before im
peded by physicists, and calculated to bring safety to thou
sand of men."
The French revolution came in, at this juncture j
of the new discovery, and Bottineau disappears
perhaps became a victim of the guillotine.
His twenty years of patient labor appeared to
have been wasted, and the science of nauscopia
forever lost to the human race. But in 1810,
twenty years after Bottineau's appearance in
Paris, we read of another . Frenchman,, named
Feillaffc, (let those pronounce it whose tongues
have been split,) at the same Isle of France, and
declared to have himself the same manifestations
of ships coming," several days before they were in
sight.- Ills "predictions, like those of bis prede
cessor, with whom he never was acquainted, ap
pear by record to have been remarkably fulfilled.
In one instance, be notified the Governor of the
island tbat a 'number of ships, presumably an
English fleet, were assembling at Bodrigues, an
island three hundred miles from Mauritius. It
is. even stated that ha gave tbe number. 'The
Governor threatened to Bend bim to prison as an
alarmist, unless be held his tongue. France and
England were then at war. . But it turned out
that be was perfectly right ; the fleet was actually
at that moment assembling at tbe place be had j
mentioned, and a few days afterwards appeared ,'
These singular phenomena, which have inter
ested and puzzled thinking minds of the present
times in Europe and America, -having been lately
resurrected from the dust of y ears , by Dickens'
44 Once a "Veekr' have, as we are somewhat in
clined to believe, appeared here in Honolulu. A
well - known gentleman rer-iding in our city, who
holds more than one high official position, appears
at times to possess some gifted foresight pertain
ing to the arrival of sailing veaeelii, but more
especially of steamers. "Whether he has etudied
this science'' of nauscopia or not, his predictions
are ofen'manfelousiy accurate. The facts which
ive above may give tne curious some ciue as
how his knowledge is obtained. If there are
anv peculiar phenomena preceding thearrival f
mail packets or steamers, otner tnan teiegrapn
signals and smoke, we should like to know more
about them. . . -.-
TJducatlon or tlie Freedmen. t f
Since the termination of the late war in the
United States', the problem has been presented
Very forcibly to the thinking minds of the world
What is to be done with the four inillions of
human beings in the Southern States, educated to
a life of slavery, dependence and vice, thus sud
denly made, not only free, but free Americans
the proudest title that any descendant of Adam
can claim ? It was considered a dangerous thing
to entrust the late chattel, now made a man, with
the ballot ; and so it was. But, so lar, tbe negro
has nobly vindicated himself, and shown that if
he is allowed a chance, he is ambitious enough to
place himself on a square footing with his white
brother, in the social and political relations of life.
Already in tbe American Congress, we Bee two
legislators, colored men, sent there from the sec
tion that but a few years ago laid it down as an
immutable axiom that the negro has no rights
which the white man is bound to respect." It is,
nevertheless, undeniably true that the negro
character of the South, after the long years of
moral degradation which was the natural result
of the slave system, must be educated up to the
proper standard to make him know and appreciate
and carefully use his new-found privileges. This
was, eo to speak, the great "job " which the
people of tbe North found upon their hands at
the close of the war. And nobly have they met
it. Thousands of devoted self-sacrificing men and
women have labored among tbe blacks as school
teachers, and with great success. But the task
of raising the black to the needed level is a her
culean one, and will require tbe persistent efforts
of philanthropists for more than one generation
before Ethiopia can " stretch out her hands to
God " as is her right. ' .
It is pleating for us Hawaiian, in this connec
tion, whose boast it is that we are Fifteenth
Amendment " men no distinction as to race or
color -to know taat one of Hawaii's sons is a
prominent leader in this great work of educating
the freedmen. S&muel C. Armstrong, a son of
j theUt& Dt Arrr8trong,MiniBterof Public Instruc-
tion, leaving the islands about the commencement
j of tho eDtereJ the Mnice on. &Q of the
; Uni anJ with t di8tinctiorj. IIe
, brevetted Brigadier-General for his gallantry
and bravery.' When the war was over, laying
down bis sword, he became a school master, and
is now tho principal of the Freedmen's normal
school at Hampton, Virginia, a picture of which
noble institution now lies before us. During the
war he commanded a regiment of colored men,
nd often led them to victory
Now he essays to
lead the colored rice to learning.
In Boston, in the latter part of January last,
a meeting was held at Music Hall, of the friends
of education in the South, at which a large and
intelligent audience were present. The meeting
was presided over by Hon. Josiah Quincy, and a
number of distinguished persons were on the plat
form. But the principal speaker of the evening
was General Armstrong, who spoke at some length
on 44 the needs of the South to-day."
that the first of these was teachers, and then farm
ers. The negro, to succeed as a citizen, must be
come a farmer on a small scale, and must therefore
accept principles of cultivation entirely different
from what he has been brought up to. A system
of cultivation which depended upon exhausting
the soil and then abandoning it, would not, be
said, do for small farmers, yet it was the only one
whicli the negro had an opportunity for learning.
He therefore needed education in this almost as
much as in any respect. One of the great obsta
cles to the rise of the negro was his improvidence.
At the Hampton Institute each of the scholars
was presented with a bill every month, showing
how much he had earned, and how much he owed.
This was a powerful education to thrift, and
would do much toward destroying this worst
habit of the negro. .Manual labor schools, of
which tbat at Hampton was a fair specimen, were
better than free schools for the education of the
uejjro. At Hampton says the General, 44 two-
thirds of the students paid their board bills, and
half earned enough at the rate of ten cents an
hour, to clothe, themselves respectably and. pay
for their books. The labor system in Hampton
was peculiar in its separation of study from work,
so that they do not interfere with each other.
The etudotits were divided into five squads, one
of which was in the field each day of the week,
and all turned out Saturday. The industrial room
for girls was ono of the most important features of
the Hampton work. It furnished profitable em
ployment for girls, and enables them to receive
money from the institute at the end of the month,
rather than owe anything.' Tbe garments made
arc sold to students of this and otner schools, at
the cost of material and making.' The girls were
taught to cut and make clothes, to use the sewing
machine, and to wash and iron. Tho aim of tbe
institution was to teach the students how to labor
and how to live. There were now seventy-five
students in attendance at the Hampton formal
and Agricultural Institute, of whom fifty-four
were boarders, paying 10 a month apiece for all
they received. 2s early all of the students had
been slaves, and most of them bad been in tbe
army. He believed that the quiet, faithful work
of teachers in tbe South did more in the way of
genuine reconstruction than Congress had done
with all its power; a single teacher was worth
more than a company of United States soldiers.
Thirteen of the undergraduates of the school were
now engaged in teaching six hundred children.
These teac&ers go into tbe neighboring counties
and States, and in the rural districts are boarded
and lodged by the people, who contribute ten
cents a week for each child that is taught, and
tbe Freedmen's Bureau supplies $10 a month
by way of salary. In three years, if the present
plans can be carried oat, there will have gradua
ted 120 young men and women, who wflT proba
bly teach between thirty and forty thousand chil
dren. In carrying forward this work", Southern
aid was not to be looked4 for, Virginia was bur
dened with too large a debt, and would not help
if she could. The Southern people were essen
tially what they always had been, and the North
must furnish the necessary means to advance the
great work which had been so successfully begun."
At the close of the meeting it was stated that
the cost of the school buildings at Hampton was
45,000, of which the Government ot the United
States had given $30,000, and it was expected
that the-balance of $15,000 would be raised in
Massachusetts. Notice was given that Gen'. Jas.
F. B. Marshall, (an old resident of these islands)
. . - 1- . WW '
was agent to receive subscriptions for the :11am p-
tun fcchool fund.
In tbe same Boston paper in which we find the
above, it in mentioned that on the previous after
noon, (Jan. 27,) 44 The Hawaiian Club gave a re
ception to General S. C. Armstrong, Superinten
dent of the Hampton Normal and Agricultural
Institute, in tho ladies' parlor of" the Parker
House. A very large company was present, in
cluding His Excellency Governor Claflin, and
other distinguished gentlemen.'
Charcoal on tlio Ilraln.
The official organ finds it hard to acquiesce in
Judge Hoffmann's decision regarding the adulter
ation of sugars by the admixture of charcoal, in
order that they might expe certain legitimate
taxes. Like a stubborn 'lawyer who has lost bis
case, it tries to show that the judge and jury were
all wrong, that they did not understand the case
at all, that he (the lawyer) alone,' was right
when he argued that black was white, which
every man in the jury box knew to bo a lie.-""
,- The organ contends that -the rabies of sugar
does not depend on its color. Everybody knows
that', and. everybody admits it. Tbe duty is not
levied on an ad valorem basis, but on a color
basis.' In this lies the force and justice of Judge
Hoffman's decision, and the beinousness of the
attempt to defraud the United States Treasury
that the parties implicated kneio that' color was
not the standard of the value of the adulterated
sugar. ' It might have been debased to. No. G to
deceive tbe custom officers, and yet been worth
to the refiners what it really was No. 14 or 15,
consisting of almost pure caue sugar. A know
I g of this fact", as hinted by the official orean to
have been tbe case makes the deed ..ten fold
worse than if it had been done by parties ignorant
of the real value of the doctored sugar.
No, gentlemen, the more you stir up this foul
and base attempt at fraud, the more you seek to
apologize for those unfortunately involved J it,
the more forcibly will the truth of the charge
of Judge Hoffman be brought home, that the
attempt to enter charcoal sugars is " MORALLY
AND LEGALLY FRAUDULENT," and those
engaged in it as having " beknt ocilti of a false
APPLIANCE AXD FRAUDULENT PRACTICE WITHIN THE
MEANING OF THE STATUTE."
Coast Scrvet of Oahu. The' Oazette says that
on Friday of last week, ' a surveying party detailed
by CapL Wiplinger of IT. I. & R, A. M. ship Donau,
consisting of Lieut Hentchel, Midshipmen Labres
and Albriuht, and a number of seamen, left town for
tbe purpose of making a survey of the coast line of
this Island. ' Horses and other facilities for the trip
were furnished by Hia Excellency the Minister of the
Interior. On Saturday, the party having proceeded
as far as Diamond Head. Lieut Hentchel, while
carrying a portion of his instruments, which deprived
him of full control of his horse, was unfortunately
thrown, breaking his right arm, which obliged him ,
to retuVn from the expedition. Messrs. Labres and
Albriclit have continued with their party, and will
probably return within two weeks after having made
the complete circuit of the Island. We understand a
chart will be made from the field notes of tbe expe
dition, which from its correctness and reliability will
form a valuable addition to our information in regard
to the coast line of this Island." -
Tire Proposed Tows Clock. As we stated some
time since, the Ministry have promised to recommend
to the next Legislative Assembly an appropriation for
a clock for the top of the bell-tower, now nearly com
pleted. It has been suggested, and it is well wor
thy of attention that the six faces of the clock should
be so constructed that tbay can be illuminated at
night, and thus furnish a time-keeper for the city and
its suburbs during all hours of the twenty-fonr.
This would be a great public convenience, and the
expense would be comparatively light

Completion of the Repair on the Donac On
the 4th of January last, the Messrs. D. Foster & Co.
undertook the job of repairing II. I. A. II. M.'s ship
Donau, injured in a typhoon, last December, on the
passage from Japan. Considering the magnitude of
the work to be done, and the apparent lack of facili
ties at oar port, the undertaking of so heavy a piece
of work was at the time considered to be a piece of
temerity, not to, say " cheek." as was observed in
our hearing by a bystander. But the contractors
have performed their work thoroughly and to the
satisfaction, as we learn, of the commander of the
Donau. The box used for getting at the stern of the
ship, is a section of a floating dock, and was thirty
six feet in length, tweLty-five feet in depth, and
when in position, seven feet below the keel of the
ship, which draws eighteen feet of water. This box
was so carefully constructed and fitted to the ship.
that a Bingle hand-pump, kept going one-fourth of
the time, enabled the carpenters to work In compara
tive dryness undor the ship's bottom. Bolts of cop
per, five and a half feet long, were by this means
driven from below up through the ship's keeL The
repairs include thirty feet of keel, a new rudder
post, and a new rudder. The rodder post is thirty
two feet in length, and nineteen by forty-eight inohes.
When Foster & Co. undertook the repairing of the
ship, they knew that there was no timber requisite
to be had in Honolulu, but they at once, with that
spirit of energy and indomitable perseverance which
is peculiarly a characteristic of that firm, dis
patched a proper agent to Kona, Hawaii, and from
out of its forests, was brought the trunk of the huge
ohiat that form the wood-work of the Donau' t re
pairs. Thus, Hawaiian and Austrian timber united
form a part of the ship symbolical, perhaps of the
friendship which may hereafter subsist between the
two countries, so widely separated by conditions and
space. When everything is taken into consideration
the delays that necessarily occurred from building
the box, which is itself an ark, and the making of
necessary castings at the foundry, which occupied
much time and somewhat delayed tbe prosecution of
the carpenter work, and tbe fact that the ship's
upper works have been thoroughly caulked and
everything put to rights in the cabins and elsewhere
on board it may be said that the Dcnau will go to
sea from Honolulu in quite as good condition as
when she left Trieste, on her present expedition.
As to the expense attending these extensive repairs,
we cannot speak authoritatively, but we are assured
that they are less than would have been incurred
had the ship gone to San Francisco and there gone
into the dry-dock.
