NOTES OF THE WEEK.
The Dead brought to Life. A most extraordi
nary and as far as oar reading goes unprecedented
case of a return to life from apparently hopeless death,
occurred on Friday night of last wedi at the Insane
Asylum at Kalihi. A crazy native man had been re
cently brought from Hawaii aod placed in the Asy
lum. At the time of his arrest he was very violent,
and his captors bound him tightly with cords by the
arms. These cords were kept on the man until his I
arrival here, when it was found that they had cut
deeply into the flet-h, especially of the left arm above
the elbow. In short, the arm was in such a state of
advanced mortification, that Dr. Wm. Hillebrand, the
attendant physician, found amputation to be neces
sary, and called in the assistance of Dr. E. Hofimann.
The man being a maniac, chloroform was adminis
tered. The great loss of blood, (owing to the main
artery having been already attacked by mortification,
and only partially arrested in its flow by the timely
measures adopted by Mr. Davidson, the overseer)
combined with the previous mental excitement of the
patient, produced a very quick and powerful influence
of the narcotic drug. The operation was successfully
performed by a dim candle light, almost immediately
after which the patient gave the peculiar rattling gasp,
the invariable signal of death, and then lay motionless,
breathless, pulseless, without any perceptible action
of the heart to all intents and purposes, dead. But
the medical gentlemen, not despairing, and bethink
ing themselves of a recent discovejy of the possibility
of restoring life by artificial inflation of the lungs,
determined to try the experiment. Prying open the
set jaws, the tongue was seized by forceps and forci
bly drawn out and held, thus keeping open the air
passage to the lungs. Then, in regular intervals, the
sides of the chest and the pit of the stomach were
compressed alternately. This was kept up vigorously
for thirty minutes, without any apparent result,
when suddenly the first signs of life appeared in a
slight respiration, somewhat to the surprise of the two
plvjsicians themselves. Again respiration was sus
pended for ten minutes. Stimulated however, by the
encouraging symptoms, the former process was con
tinued with all care and solicitude, and again life
seemed to be renewed ; and after two hours continued
labor in this way, the patient commenced to breathe
more regularly and seemed to sleep quietly. The
tongue was relaxed, seuse and voice had not returned
yet, but a little stimulating liquor was swallowed, and
six hours later, some beef tea was taken. The pa
tient continued to improve not only physically but
mentally, and is now considered as doing well, and
may possibly recover from his insanity. This is cer
tainly one of the most wonderful cases on record, and
should be remembered. Ninety-nine men even
medical men out of one hundred, would, under the
circumstances, have given the man up as hopelessly
dead, but not so Drs. Hillebrand and Hofimann. We
advise our readers to preserve this paragraph for
future reference, in cases which may come- under
notice of apparent death by drowning or exhaustion.
The advice of the doctors U do not give np the effort
to restore life in such cases, until after the lapse of at
.lent three hours,
T Naval The U. S. sloop-of-war Jamestown, 1G
guns, arrived on Sunday last, fifteen days from San
Francisco. On Monday morning the usual salutes
were exchanged with the battery. She is on special
service, being ordered to cruise among the Islands of
Micronesia, to look after the interests of American
citizens in those seldom visited groups of the Pacific,
and to make surveys, &c. She will also inquire into
the outrages that have been perpetrated by the sava.
ges and others upon some of the Missionaries. It is
to be hoped that tlie presence of an American ship of
war in those waters may teach the petty 44 kings "
of Micronesia that they cannot murder and rob with

Axothee Drixkinq Fovstais. We noticed re
cently a really beautiful drinking fountain, lately
imported and put up in the yard of the Roman Catho
lic Church. It is of bronze, and represents an angel
with outspread wings, holding an open Bible, on the
leaves of which are the words of our Saviour He
that drinketh of this water shall thirst again ; but
whosoever drinketh of the water that I will give him,
Bhail never thirst." Beneath is a hollowed recess
and basin, with iron cup attached by a chain, .the
water issuing by touching a spring.
A Fowx Pbockedinq. Last Wednesday a native
was brought up in the Poilce Court on a charge of
stealing fowls. The six fat biddies were in Loan and
cackled their corroboration of the testimony, and the
judge was about to pronounce sentence, when another
native informed his Honor that the clothes the pris
oner bad on were stolen from him. Thereupon an
other charge of larceny was laid, duly proven, and
the thief sentenced to six months for each offense a
year altogether. .
Death in New Bedford. We notice by the New
Bedford papers the death of Mr. Thomas Mandell, for
many years one of the most prominent whaleship
owners, and member of the firm of I. Howland & Co.
At the time of his death he was executor of the fa
mous Hetty Howland will, and it ia said that this
unexpected event will not delay the distribution of
the estate according to the testator s order.
Evnoams. We would call attention to the
advertisement of Mr. Holstein; who offers to furnish
evergreens and other rare exotic trees. He has
charge of a large aursery, and enjojs every facility
for furnishing ' shade trees of any variety. Our
residents desirous of improving their grounds have
always been at a loss where to obtain plants, and
generally send to California. ; Mr. H. can, however,
supply -4imatH plants, in better condition and at
less oost to those who wish to obtain them. ,
' ty'lt is reported by the telegraph that the
Queen intends to make Charles Dickens a peer. It
would be a reward to literary genius and talent
which the' whole world would applaud, while his pres
ence in the House of Lords would be an honor to the
British people, although his politics are more repub
lican than monarchical.
RsaIi Estate. On Thursday last, Adams & Wilder
Bold at auction the property in Nuuanu valley for
merly belonging toB. C. Janion, for 91005, Mr. James
Robinson being the purchaser. The same premises
changed hands about two years ftgo for 2,000.
Later f&ox Japas. By the arrival yesterday of
the American ship Jennie Eastman, Capt Getchell,
25 days from Yokohama, we are in receipt of dates
from that port to March 3d. But one copy of the
Japan Gazelle has come to hand, and the news it
contains is not particularly important. Passengers
by the Jennie Eastman state that Capt. Eyre, the
master of the British mail steamer which ran down
the U.S. Oneida, with uch a terrible destruction of
life, had been suspended from command for the space
of six months! a very mild sentence, to say the
least, for one of tle greatest marine outrages ever
perpetrated. By the way of California, we had
learned that he was to be suspended, but the term was
not stated. A few days before the Jennie Eastman
left Japan, another of the Oriental & Peninsular
steamers ran into and sunk s. Norwegian bark, cutting
her in two ami&hips. This time the Bteamer stopped
and saved nil on board the bark. The collision oc
curred near the scene of the Oneida disaster. On
the night of March 2d a large fire occurred in Yoko
hama, which consumed several stores, a hotel, and a
large number of houses chiefly occupied by Chitia
men. It was supposed to have been the work of an
incendiary. By this arrival a large number of new
varieties of trees and plants have been received from
Mr. Van Reed, besides green pigeons, canaries, white
Java 6parrows, and silk-worm eggs, of the quality
known by the natives as the joshiu, said to be a
superior kind. At Yokohama rice is reported as
scarce quoted at 290 itxaboos, (35 cents each).
The Jennie Eastman has a load of coals, and her
destination is at present uncertain. The R. W.
Wood, hence Jan. 29, had not arrived, 34 days out.
Capt. Samuel James, formerly a well-known resident
of Honolulu, is reported as doing well in Yokohama,
in the draying and dairy business.
Scpremb Court, in Banco. A case in the nature
of a submission on points of law and fact, has been
before the Supreme Court for some days past, and yes
terday the decision of the Court was rendered by Mr.
Justice HartwelL The facts as submitted were that
at the time the firm of C. N. Spencer & Co. made a
voluntary assignment to Messrs. Davics and Carter,
they were agents and part owners of the schooner
Pauahi. The schooner at the time was mortgaged,
and the main question at issue was, whether the
firm had a legal lien upon the vessel which should
take precedence of the rights of the mortgagees, and
also as to the validity of the chattel mortgages, said
mortgages having been recorded only at the Custom
house, and not at the office of the Registrar of Con
veyances. The Court held that the recording of the
mortgages at the Custom-house was sufficient notice
to all persons of the conveyance, and that the mean
ing of the word chattel as regards a vessel, is not to
be taken in the restricted sense as applied to that
kind of mortgages in general. Also that part owners
acting as agents and ships' husbands can have no
lien upon the vessel as against other owners. The
Court therefore decreed judgment against the as
signees of C. N. Spencer & Co., with costs. The
case was very ably argued for the assignees by Mr.
John Montgomery, and for the mortgagees by Mr. R.
The Streets. The condition of some of the streets
of the city during the rains of the past week, has
been most decidedly swampy ; Queen street and the
lower part of Fort street particularly, being ancle
deep with slimy, slippery mud. There being no
regular crossings, it requires considerable skill to
pass from one side of the street to the other without
getting thoroughly mired, and polished boots are out
of the question. In fact, in many places there is no
choice in point of mud between the sidewalk and the
middle of the street Now is the time for the road
makers to cart on the black sand, which readily
mixing with the mud, forms a hard road. Nuuanu
street is the driest and cleanest in the city and has,
through most of its length, good sidewalks. We
commend the plan generally adopted by the shop
keepers on that thoroughfare of muking good side
walks plank or otherwise in front of their re
spective premises, to the conaidera5'" -
' "A Little Knowledge," &c The mistakes
made by some foreigners in trying to talk Hawaiian,
and those of the natives in endeavoring to understand
them, are sometimes laughable. A day or two since,
a gentleman came down town to open his office in the
morning, but found he had forgotten the key. He
dispatched a native boy to his residence with orders
to bring the " ti," and in the course of a half an
hour the messenger returned with a tea-pot, and the
paraphernalia of a light breakfast. If he had been
told to bring the hi, the difference of one letter
would have prevented the blunder. Another servant
was told to fetch a book lying on a lounge, which
latter was particularly described. Of course he left
the book and brought the lounge. These afford as
hearty jokes as any Irish bulls we have ever heard.
City Fathers Bennett's Own goes into rapso-
dies over the new iron fence and drinking fountain
at the Court House, and greatly honors somebody
whom it terms " the city fathers " for the improve
ment, which, by the way, is certainly a very hand
some one. Uut we are indebted to our neighbor for
the information that our city has got " fathers ;"
had we been asked how she got along to her present
prosperous condition, we might in our simplicity
have answered, like -little Topsy in the story "I
'spect I grow'd." However, as Bennett's Own ap
pears to be well acquainted with the family, will it
further oblige by informing us who are the city's
grand-mothers 7 -
In Luck. The discoverer of the new gold mines
near San Diego is Mr. John T. Gower, formerly of
Maui, who, with his family, migrated to Lower Cali
fornia about 'a year ago. If the mine should prove
lo be extensive, it will be valuable, especially to a
man who is accustomed to hard work, and is capable
of carrying on quarts mining. We have seen a letter
from Mr. G. in which he fully confirms the published
newspaper accounts. The specimens sent to San
Francisco, and which were taken out within six feet
of the surface, will yield from one to two thousand
dollars to the ton. If so, and his claim to the discov
ery is confirmed, his fortune is made.
Another Unfortunate. One of the natives em
ployed around the sugar kettles in the mill of the
Lihue Plantation on Wednesday week, fell in and was
scalded up to his waist by the boiling cane juice. He
has since died of his wounds, after the most intense
suffering. This makes the tenth or eleventh person
employed in the same mill, meeting similar ac
cidents, some of them fatal, the last previous one
having been a German, about a year since. Is there
not some way to remedy this 2 Cannot a simple
railing be constructed around the kettles to serve as

Tub Shakes tlkkax 11kaiinus. Professor Walter
Montgomery has continued his readings the past week
at Bufium's Temperauce Hall, though the stormy
weather has somewhat interfered with his arrange
ments. Last Saturday evening, however, the hall
was crowded with a large audience of attentive list
eners to hear him in his master piece of Macbeth,
which occupied the entire evening. We will not at
tempt a description of it ; but merely say that his
performance of this great story was unsurpassable.
Although in his rendering of classic tragedies, he
shows himself such a master, yet in seme minor
pieces, such as the thrilling " Charge of the Six Hun

Baby, he touches more sensibly the popular pulse.

Jack ox Horseback A day or two since, a sailor
from the American man-of-war now in port, being
on shore for a run, after taking on board a consider
ably perceptible cargo of stimulant, chartered a
horse for a ride. While careering along at full speed,
bound on no particular course, the horse suddenly
shied and Jack went overboard, but one foot caught in
the stirrup, and he was dragged for some distance
along the street. While in this perilous condition
the horse gave a side kick, striking the man on his
posteriors, by which somehow his foot got released
from the stirrup. Picking himself up, he commenced
vigorously rubbing the part with which the horse's
foot had come in contact. " Are you much hurt? "
inquired a bystander. " Blast it," was the reply,
" If I had only been drunk, it would have been all
right, for a drunken man never gets hurt by a fall ; "
and he trotted off after his runaway, remembering
doubtless, the old adage that a stern chase is a long
A Bold Burglar On Friday night of last week ,
Consul General Wodehouse discovered a native man
creeping along the floor of his room towards the bed.
Jumping up, the Consul seized the man, and a tussle I
! ensued, but the fellow managed to get away, escaping
through the doer. Ha however, left his hat behind
him, .a neatly made native hat, bound with a crape
braided from sugar cane tops. This hat the police
have carried all over the city and environs, but can
find no one who ever saw it before. The thief did
not accomplish the object of his visit, and the wonder
is that he should enter a sleeping room as he did,
where a light was burning.
Woodman, Spare that Tree. But " rude Boreas,
blustering railer," did not spare it, for on Tuesday
last he twisted and wrenched its branches, until
losing its hold upon the earth, it fell across
the street. We mean the old algeroba, which for
twenty-five or more years has stood in front of the
Post-office building, and afforded a pleasant shade
during the hot afternoons. The algeroba, while it is
a fine ornamental and shade tree, does not root well,
aud cannot staud a strong wind as well as the
monkey-pod and some other trees.
Indecent Exposure. Last Monday noon, a newly
shipped whaleman, after industriously spe filing his
advance on whisky, got so oblivious that he stripped
off his clothes and appeared stark naked on the
street lie was promptly arrested and the next day
fined ten dollars and costs. The fine would have
been more, but that he was going immediately to sea.

The San Diego gold mines, discovered by John
T. Gower, are creating great excitement. The

The Alia publishes a private letter from San
Diego, dated March 4th which says:
The drought is over at lant It is no mere shower

riferous rocks. We have inspected two large trunks
full of the quartz. Some is spotted as handsomely
tis ever freckles spotted a woman's lace. It seeuis
that J. T. Gower (brother-in-law of Rev. Jd. S. Cros
well of your city). II. C. Bickers and Dr. J. B.
Wells (dentist), started for the mountains, 70 miles
distant, three weeks ago. Yesterday two of them
returned richly laden with their golden bounty.
The quartz has since been open to public inspection,
and every voice says
" rich and no surface blos
som." The town is in a great furore. Suddenly
warmed into life, it is rousing up to tap the bosom
that has revived it. The crown goes for the lncky
ones, as the flock of gulls pounce-on their fellow,
who has picked up along ship-side a bigger biscuit
than he can swallow. A few sober ones, though,
say they rejoice that three steady, honest men have
got their pile this time. The discoverers of the
new mines are not the men to deceive if they bad
the means ; but it is well known that they bad not
the means to get elsewhere, save from earth's
bosom, the '-richest quartz ever found in California.'
Regarding the sinking of the U. S. Ship Oneida,
by tbtt Bombay, the Sacramento Union's Yokohama
correspondent has the following additional :
The excuse the Captain has for leaving is that he
thought his own ship was damaged, and that be did
not bear the signals of distress ; but these state
ments are so utterly absurd that tbey are entirely
discredited by any American here, and by the bet
ter English citizens, who condemn hisgrotfs coward
ice and inhumanity in bitter terms. The circum
stances are being inquired into by a naval Court of
Inquiry, held before the British Consul and four
maritime officers. . The evidence of Capt Eyre and
three ot bis officers is evasive and equivocating,
and attempts to make him and them harmless ; but
the evidence offered by Lieut. Clemens, the last
thing, is a terrible "crusher," inasmuch as he is
second officer of the English man-of-war Ocean, and
we say it gladly an honest gentleman and
Briton, lie stated that be went on the Bombay
