SATURDAY. APRIL 23.
QOTES OF THE WEEK.
Steamer Day lias become ore of tbe institutions
of Honolulu, anl the departure of the Idaho on
Thursday, was the liveliest yet. The large number
of passengers bound to California and the East,
some two hundred or more among them some of
our old island residents, attracted a crowd, and
the Esplanade presented a busy scene. If one wanted
to find any other one. say from the hours of 4 to 5 p.m.
' ou TbursJaJ. he need only have gone down tojLc
I Huho't berth in order to meet his man. Vehicles of
j all uorts were inotiug about, from dray?, handcarts
and wheelbarrows, to gigs, sulkjs, landaus aud spring
wagons. A curious itetuizer counted over one hun
dred vehicles on the Esplanade at one time. The af
ternoon being fine, the ladies were out in full force,
and the array of beauty and fashionable costumes
would have greatly astonished some in other lands,
who still write of the Sandwich Islands as the abode
of savages. The fruit dealers did a good business,
and orange men were happy emptying cartloads of
their delicious fruit Up and down the gang-way
plank, a constant stream was passing some to see
friends on board, some out of idle curiosity, and some
to revisit the shore for something they had forgot
until the last moment The last farewells were spoken,
hands grasped, messages repeated "now don't for
get," the plank was withdrawn, tbe engine moved,
and the ship swung slowly from the dock, amid the
waving of kerchiefe and hats, when " the last man "
of course appeared, as he always does just at this
juncture, and has to be assisted to clamber up the
sides of the tall ship. At last, fairly under way, she
begins to move rapidly down the harbor, the passen
gers who crowd the deck, like a swarm of bees, cheer
ing the shore and the shore answering. As she passes
the war-ships, she gracefully dips her ensign, and is as
gracefully answered. Then three farewell whistles, the
parting gun, and the steamer is soon out on the rolling
waves of the Tacific, with her precious freight of hu
manity, while the 6hore crowd, some with grave faces
that bear the signs of tears, but more with merry
jest and laughing countenances, turn homeward, to
await the arrival of news of those from whom they
have just parted. Such is steamer day in Honolulu.
Ax Elkuant Testimonial. Mr. Walter Montgom
ery has given several readings to the crew of the
Jamestown, the United States sloop-of-war now in
Honolulu harbor, and the gallant fellows have pre
sented him with a magnificent testimonial in the j
shape of a gold medal of their own designing and
of local manufacture. In the centre of the circle is
the .semblance of the Jamestown in full sail upon a
stormy ocean, the old flag, sails, spars and rigging
standing out in bold relief against a brilliant hori
zon. Surrounding this exquisite picture is a circlet
of broad gold, inscribed. United States sloop-ot-war
Jamestown ; " and this is again encircled by
an outer ring with the glorious Stars in pure dia
monds on a background of naval blue. The loop
of the medallion bears our city's name, and upon
the reverse side the following sentence, of which
Mr. Walter Montgomery may well b proud :
"Presented to U alter Montgomery by the creic. as
a tribute of resqject well merited by his disinterested
kindness and sterling good qualities of head and
"Honolulu, April 21st. 1870."
Target Pbactice. Every morning, for the past
week or bo, a singular popping noise, followed by one
of a whizzing kiud, has been heard out somewhere in
the neighborhood of Makiki. Some suggested that
it was a party out shooting for plover, but the firing
was too regular for that. On inquiry we learned
that the government troops were out, shooting at a
mark, aud that out of some thousand shots, as many
as two or three had actually bit the target, while
several others had kicked up quite a dust in its
neighborhood, Bay from a quarter to a half a mile to
the right or left. It was further suggested that this
shooting at a mark was ominous of approaching war
with Butaritari, or perhaps Japan. The Department
of War and the Navy, we guess, knows all about it.
' In time of peace, prepare for war."
Temperance Ampnq the Natives Last Sunday
evening, there was a temperance meeting at Kawai
abao Church, numerously attended by the Hawaiian?.
There was a number of speakers, prominent amoug
which was Mr. Komoikehuehu, member elect at the
Legislature from Ewa and Waianae, who made an
eloquent address to his countrymen on the evils of
intoxicating drinks. Rev. II. II. Parker also ad
dressed the assemblage, as did Mr. Keliipio, a native
lawyer. The two principal native speakers are
members of Queen Emma Lodge, of Good Templars
In this connection we may state that two new charters
for new lodges of tbe Order have been received here
from tbe Grand Lodge of California. We hear that
one of these is to be established at Wailuku, Maui.
HIE 1UIKSTKJSUI. -iiapi caturusy cvcuuig, uie lien
& Hiton troup of minstrols gave a performance at
BufTum Hall, to a good audience. These minstrels
have made a great improvement in all respects since
their last appearance, and as a domestic institution
of our own, deserve to be patronized, and doubtless
will be. The only fault we have to find with the
negro delineators, is that they speak too low, but
that is easily cured by practice.. The addition of
Mr. and Mrs. Macauley, to the troupe, who are
experienced musicians, is a valuable attraction, for
minstrel performances soon pall without good music.
They perform again next Saturday evening.
rr st Tt CJi 1 ! .vri
r Ttir TTnn'a lirk- Ts the name of a shoal in the
Sacramento river, that often bothers the Btcamers.
We have a similar shoal in Honolulu harbor, a little
makai of the north portion of the esplanade. Last
Tuesday, the Kate Lee, deeply loaded for Ililo,
swung bows off and made sail, but stuck on the
shoal, and it was sometime before she could be forced
over. It has ou it at low tide from six to seven feet
of water, and has often given trouble to Bhipping.
Tbe bottom appears to be a sort of concrete of coral
and black sand, very hard to get at with the dredge.
A few blasts with giant powder" would loosen it
up and render tbe whole length of the esplanade
more available than at present.
An Old Resident Going Home. Among the pas
sengers from Australia by the steamer on Tuesday
morning was Mr. Archer, formerly of the firm of
Archer & Gruben, at one time engaged in the cul
ture of tobacco on Kauai. Tbe business did not
succeed, pecuniarily, and Mr. A. went to Australia
in 1854, where he had relatives, and where he en
gaged in the business of sheep raising on one of the
immense runs " of that country. We hear that
he has been quite successful there, and now returns
to Scotland, the land of his nativity.
The Schooner Annie. This well-known coaster
has been put in thorough repair, and under the com
mand of her old popular master, Capt Babcock,
has been again put on the Ililo route, sailing with a
full freight on Friday last The Annie is noV a
clipper, yet she has always made remarkably good
time heretofore, and will doubtless continue to equal
tbe performances of some that are clippers.
AccnoN Sal o? Land in Koolac. Adams &
Wilder sold at auction on Wednesday last in front o
the Court House, a tract of land, consisting of ni
acres, five of which is taro land, in Eoolaupoko,
longing to the estate of the late S. P. Nohea. It
sold subject to the widow's right of dower, an
brought S275. Mr. Everett beinjr the purchases. If
is considered a good bargain.
Bt AnHoaiTT Notices. Tbe Attorney General
gives notice that during the temporary absence from
the Kingdom of P. H. Treadway, Sheriff of Maui,
T. W. Everett of Wailuku will discharge tbe duties
of that office.
The Collector General announces tbe appoint,
ment of IL N. Greenwell to be Collector and Board
ing officer for the port of Eealskektta, Hawaii.
The Australian Pioneer. Early risers on Tues
day morning, were gratified with the sight of a large
three-masted steamer entering our harbor, carrying
the American colors at the fore and the British at
the taSrail. She proved to be the Wonga If onga.
Captain T. S. Beale, the pioneer of the Australian,
New Zealand and California Mail Line of packets,
and reported herself as 17 days passage from Auck
land, and 23 from Sydney. The time. made on this
first trip, though it sounds extraordinary to those
use! to sailing vessels, only, is longer than contem
plated to be made hereafter by the other vessels to be
placed on the route. The IVonga XVonga is a
Clyde-built iron ship, 1200 tons burthen, and 17
j years old, and though like all the propellers con-
j tructed on that river she is very fast, averaging
i dung niost of the passage up, 275 miles per day
yet m the years that have elapsed since she was
launched, great improvements in point of speed and
power have been made. She brought 170 passengers,
en route for California, tbe most of whom Bailed ou
the Idaho on Thursday.
It is gratifying to find that while the China Mail
Steamship Company seem determined to give Hono
lulu the go-by, in favor of the barren Midway
Island as a stopping place, we are to have the
periodical visits of the noble Ehips of the Australian
Line, opening up to our Islands without doubt a far
more desirable and profitable means of increasing
our trade than could result to us by the closer
intimacy with China which might result through the
Thus, we have at length every prospect of being
put in regular constant and speedy communication,
by steam, railways and the electric telegraph, with
the whole civilized world. Let it be seen with what
discretion and industry we shall meet these great
fA Lakqe Transaction. The property known as
the Puuloa Salt Works, located on Pearl River Bay,
near this city, comprising 2800 acres of land, with
buildings, extensive salt pans, &c, &c, has been
purchased by Messrs. P. C. Jones, Capts. Pierce
and Nye, for 630,000. Considering the extent of
land, tbe buildings, and the amount of salt which
can be produced, it is a good investment at that
figure. The purchasers intend to improve the works,
which are capable of turning out from ten to twenty
thousand tons a year, and to enlarge operations, bo
as to be able to supply whatever demand there may
be for salt in this part rf the world. Being the only
extensive salt works in this ocean, aud centrally
located, it oilers a rare field for enterprise.
A Fast Boat. The new schooner Waiola, of 35
tons burthen, lately built by Mr. Geo. Euitnes.
made her first trip to Maui this week. Leaving
here on Tut-sday at i p. m., she arrived at Mariko
after a passage of thirty hours, discharged a full
cargo ot Bbooks, took in a full freight of sugar, and
arrived back in this port Friday morning, having
Veen absent only 2i days. She has nhown that
she possesses first-class sailing qualities not sur
passed by our bc9t imported pilot boats. She has
been purchased by Messrs. Dowsett & Co., and will
run hereafter to Mariko.
Frmalk Heroism. Lady Franklin, who is well
known to many of our readers, is now on the way
out to the l'acilic on a singular mission singular
if true. It seems that some one living in Vancou
ver's Island has a letter either from or regarding her
husband, Sir John Franklin, which lie refuses to
deliver to any one but herself in person. The au
thorises there certify to the fact of the existence of
such a letter. She, though eighty years old, has
Bet out to obtain possessiou of the precious uilssal.
Cheap Ice. Tbo Sacramento Union says that tbe
people of San Francisco will soon be luxuriating
on cheap ice. The Tubbs Patent Ice Company will be
under full headway withiu a few days. It proposes
to manufacture ice from Spring valley water, and
sell" it for 1 cent a pound or $20 per ton. The
Summit Ice Company has a large establishment
and vends the cool luxury for 2 cents por pound,
while the Russian Company sell for 2 cts. per
pound.'' The San Francisco steamers will now be
able to keep a constant supply hero at a very
Amusements. From a condition of utter dearth
in the way of public amusements during some time
past, we are now pretty well supplied. In addition
to Mr. Montgomery's readings, we are promised a
season of theatrical entertainments, by Miss Cleve
land, (who comes with a high reputation from Aus
tralia), in the line of comedy, and who with her
company has arranged to take the Hawaiian Theatre.
Their first performance will take place on Wednesday
evening next, as per advertisement.

Strawberries in San Francisco. In the Bulletin
of April 1st, we find tbe following :
The first strawberries this season, of any amount, were re
ceived this morning at the Pacific Fruit market. The consign
ment aggregated about 1.000 pounds, and though grown nearly
IS milea from the city, the berries are designated as " Mission,"
in contra-distinction to those raised in the guc Jose valley,
from which latter viciuity no supplies of consequence have yet
come to baud. The whole talc rates are 40 lo 60 cents per
Here we have strawberries all the yean round,
brought by the peddlers to our doors, and furnished
at 25 cts. per quart.
Mr. Montgomery's recital, on Monday even
ing at the Court House, for the benefit of the Ameri
can Relief Fund and St. George's Benevolent Society,
was well attended, and his performance was fully
equal to any of the previous ones, though tbe hall did
not appear to be as well adapted to a good display of
his talent nor so pleasant for the audience as that
formerly used. The net avails of the entertainment
were about two hundred dollars.
Scarcity or Lodging Houses. Every time that a
sudden influx of new comers occurs iu this city, as
was the case on the arrival of the Australian steamer,
the strangers find it impossible to get lodging on
shore. It is very annoying, when a person has per
formed a sea-voyage, crowded, cabined, cribbed,
confined," after getting to land to be" obliged to re
turn to close quarters ou the ship, especially so in a
warm climate like this.
jgj"" A fine aloe plant, in Mr. Hopper's premises,
corner of King and Punchbowl streets, is preparing
to bloom, by sending up a huge blossom stalk.
This plant must be twenty or thirty years old, and
this is ita first effort to bloom. It promises to be an
unusual sight, as it differs from the common aloe. ,.

Court, to be holden at Hilo, has been ordered to be

Iron Moncments. We noticed a day or two since
in the foundry, two very fine specimens of iron cast
ings. One is a plain broad tablet, surmounted with
a cross and inscribed with the name, age and birth
place of the unfortunate young officer of the Donau
who came to such a Bad end in the harbor last month.
The other is a plain shaft, also of cast iron, about
fifteen feet high, and on tbe base is inscribed the
names of the seamen of the Donau who have died
during the stay of the ship in our port. These mon
uments, are to be placed over the graves in the
Catholic cemetery at Kulaokahua. The oCcers and
crew of the Donau, it may be supposed, will always
remember their stay at Honolulu with a melancholy
interest, as being the last resting place of so many
of their countrymen who left Trieste on the long voy
age round the world. We learn that the ship will
shortly sail for Guatemala and either there or at
Callao be rejoiued by the Admiral (unless he has in
the meantime returned by the Isthmus) for the home
voyage. During her somewhat protracted stay, her
officers have made many friends among our resident,
and her crew have been without doubt the most or
derly and quiet set of man-of-war's men ever in this
port There has been no noire or druukenuess when
i on liberty, but rood humor and cood music have
leen their characteristics. Fare a
re well, and bon voyage
j to the Donau.
How l Avoid Hard Time.
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
The result anticipated long ago by those who duly
reflected on the subject, has at length forced itaelf
upon the attention of planters. When a fair, pay
ing contract was offered, nay, urged upon the whole
planting interest of the islauds, it could not be
effected, because a few of the planters stood out
against it ; and to be effectual, it required the con-
j currence of all ; and the result was, for a time, not
very adverse to the interests of the planters. The
price of sugar in the-California market was such, as
; to return a fair margin on shipments. But the re-
suit was only a question of time ; and that time has
! come. Sugar, now, does not pay a profit, aud prob
ably some can testify that it nets them a loss.
The cause of this is very simple. As soon ag the
refineries fouud that they could not get their supplies
from the islands, they were forced to look elsewhere
for them ; and there was no difficulty in finding
j them, and that, too, from countries where labor and
j other expenses are- much cheaper than at these isl-
ands. And the result is that the San Francisco market
j is fully supplied with the cheap grades of sugar, for
i refinery use, and ours, for all grades, arc being
! driven from their only market, or forced to ss.!e at a
i loss. Without goiug into a long argument ou the
I subject, it seems to me, who am iu no direct wuy
! interested in the plantation interest, that a epeedy
j remedy must be found, or our Bugar interests at the
i islands will be involved inpeedy ruiu.
A short road to a remedy would appear to be au
I absolute necessity ; and this can be found in immc-
