SATURDAY. AUGUST 13.
Tlie European War.
Even the etenmer is too flow to satisfy the
eager anxiety amoDg the public to learn more of
the war between Franco and Prussia. In the
abeence of authentic news, regarding the present
etate of thing?, we insert coumientd of the press,
and facts about the relative strength of the various
nations which may become involved in the war.
The population of Prussia, says the Alia, is 17,- j
ToJ.yitJ, aud the Urruian Zullvcran o3,512,467.
The Austrian population is u5,018,S8, of which
13,382;189 are Germans. France has 40,000,000 ;
Russia, 06,000,000 : Italy. 21,728,529 : Spain, 15,-
464,340. Of the immediate combatants, therefore.
33,452,467 are on the side of Prussia, against 40,
000,000 French. In a prolonged war, Austria would
watch Prussia and Spain, but Spain is no power.
Tbe weight of numbers ia therefore on the side of
France. What will be the results no man can foresee,
not even the great players who put the game in
motion. The immediate effects are patent to all
paralyzation of enterprise, and a general desire to
realize values and accumulate ready money to make
face to maturing obligations, and to take advantage
of events as they occur. The first changes which
meet the eye are a fall in French rentes from 74 to
65 ; in consols from 92 to 88 ; in United States bonds
from 100 to 94 ; other values in proportion, with a
rise in exchange, and a current of specie setting
towards the great financial centres.
Regarding the position of England, the Bulletin
Europe is on tbe eve of witnessing a fearful and
sanguinary struggle, and the loss of life and the
destruction of commerce and property that will have
to be chronicled during the next few months it is
impossible to guess at To-day (July 16th) the first
blow will in all probability be struck at some point
on the Prussian frontier, between Luxemburg and
Sarguinieres. Several Prussian and French vessels
are cruising in the Mediterranean, and it is quite
iiKeiy inai a navai SKirmisn may open tne campaign
to-day in those waters. When the work of block
ading the strongly fortified ports of Wilhelmshafen
Kiel, Sundevitt, Dantzic and Alison is conimeuced
by the powerful squadrons of France that sailed
yesterday, we shall look for some interesting parallels
to ine laminar nistory ot bumter and Fortress
England has occupied the noble position of a peace
advocate in the complications that have led to the
rupture between France and Prussia ; and there ia
no question that sue will try to keep out of the war.
An English Princess, the eldest daughter and name
sake of Victoria, is married to the heir apparent of
tne I'russian tnrone, ana the royal family is inti
mately allied to several other of the Uerman rulers.
English opinion condemns the war an unjustifiable.
and regards Napoleon as the aggressor.
Then the general sense of the English on the subject
or war lias been much elevated within a few years.
They would be prompt enough to resent a fancied
wrong or alirout, but they have no sympathy with
offensive wars, projected by ambitious ministers or
sings. Ihcy do sympathize keenly with the German
aspiration for unity, which is in alliance with the
demand for enlarged liberty.
should England become involved in the war, says
tbe Bulletin, the amount of commerce within our
grasp will be immense. If the war is not speedily
orougnt to a conclusion, or it it involves more than
I ranee and Prussia.it will be almost certain that
Great Britain will eventually become one of the par
ties. The first additional participant will be Austria.
an event which is probable. Prussia will then desire
the aid of Russia, and can ofler in return only a
support to Russian designs on Turkey. This will
bring England to the front. Or Austria may bar
gain with France for reconstruction In Italy as well
as in Germany ; and in that case Italy will see its
way to gain Rome as its capital, l'ossibly there may
be an understanding between France and Russia to
share the trade of the Orient through Turkey and
Egypt, and this combination will be still more dis
tasteful to England, while it will bring an over
whelming pressure upon Germany, reviving- the
perils against which Frederick the Great and Great
Britain fought together in 1756-C3. In any event,
England can scarcely keep out of the war if it is
prolonged, ana our opportunity to regain our lost
commerce and practically. offset the Alabama claims
is one not to bo ueglected,
Regarding the relative strength of France and
Prussia, we have the following figures
The Grand Army of France numbered, according
to the spring returns of 18G9, 252,652 infantry, or
124 regiments ; CO regiments of cavalry, numbering
o.ua men ; and 2'J batteries of artillery, number-
jug oj,oo4 men ; io.oio norses ana l.ooz guns.
Her whole available forces, according to the same
authority, were : Infantry, 515,000 : cavalry, 100,
000; artillery, 06,000; engineers, 15,000 total
096,000. Of these about 60,000 were stationed in
Algeria, but of those the majority have been recalled
As to the French navy, its immense strength is well
known. It numbers at present 69 iron-clads of the
most improved pattern and heaviest metal, carrying
r. i'ii , i it i it i ,. .
ucr ow guus. ieariy woooen ana iron vessels,
including her frigates and steamers, carrying nearly
1,000 guns ; 70 paddle-steamers with 200 guns and
over, and over 100 sailing vessels with about 770
guns lotal, 480 vessels, carrying 2,750 guns.
Respecting the Prussian army and its fighting
capacity, oauowa is not yet forgotten, and, indeed,
the remembrances, in certain quarters, of that field
and its consequences may yet prove rather inimical
to her. The Prussians are a quiet, but yet a military
people, and it has often been asserted of Prussia,
since the times of Frederick tbe Great, that she is a
nation of soldiers. Every Prussian is compelled to
eerve three years in the regular army, four years n
the militia or military reserve, and for a varying
prooatiouary period in the .Landsturm or home
guards. Her army at present is said to number
780,000, including a reserve of about 150.000. Uer
infantry numbers 270.000 and her artillery 87.000.
This fighting force was hitherto divided into twelve
grand corps, but during the past few weeks it has
doubtless been completely reorganized. The Prus
sian navy numbers ten powerful iron-clads, four of
which were to be turned off the stocks during the
present month, the rest being already prepared for
service, ten frigates, four steam sloops and twenty
two gunboats. All these are fully manned and carry
guns oi tne heaviest calibre,
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Wanted to Bct a Dog. One would suppose that
there was a sufficient supply of canines, in and about
Honolulu to satisfy the most avaricious fancieur of
that class of quadrupeds. Especially in the vicinity
of the slaughter houses below the prison. But strange
to say at that very quarter, an elderly Hawaiian
gentleman, took a great liking to a large yaller
dorg," which he discovered among the snarling,
growling and biting herd. Thinking no doubt, they
were private property, he inquired of a bystander,
also a native, as to whose property the dogs were,
to whom belonged the troupe, particularly of the
yellow dog aforesaid. The native, appealed to, being
rather astute, saw he had a sight, replied it was his,
and began descanting on his good qualities and said
be was worth at least five dollars. The bargain was
struck, and now comes the tnttkia, about the de
livery of the chattel ; the S5 were shown and Ha
waiian No. 1 said the dog must oe passed over, witn
rope round the neck, &c This was no easy job, but
Hawaiian No 2, looking at the shiners, ran off for
horse and lasso, and with some assistance the yellow
hurui was caught and delivered, money passed and
old man went off with his treasure. Who says after
this, that Hawauans are not fond of tbe animal, on
the grave of whom Lord Byron once wrote his grace
The steamer Jijax is supposed to have left
San Francisco on Wednesday last at 10 A. M. Should
she make the same passage as on her last trip, (9
days), she will be off the port by 10 o'clock on Friday
evening next. It will be remembered that on her
last passage hither, Pilot Mclntyre brought her into
port at 12 o'clock midnight. She will bring stirring
news from Europe either the bloodiest wars known
in modern times, or perhaps peace. In her mail
will be San Francisco weeklies of July 23 and 80,
and August 6, with the steamer papers of August 10.
So, look out for news.
A Distinguished T&aveleb. Among the passen
gers by the Jljax on her last trip from San Francisco,
was a gentleman who booked himself as Dr. J. M.
Forrest. We are informed that this person was none
other than the somewhat celebrated rebel chieftain.
Gen. Forrest, hero of the massacre at Fort Pillow,
where a company of loyal negro soldiers and their
officers were butchered in cold blood by his orders.
He went on to Australia in the City of Melbourne,
a wanderer and an outcast from his native land
and the best government on the face of the earth.
Mail The bark D. C. Murray sails to-day at 8
P. M. taking the American and European mails. She
will arrive at San Francisco about a week ahead of
Height of Konahuaxci. There has been consid
erable difference of opinion aa to tbe height of the
mountain summit forming the south peak of the
Nuuanu Pali. The popular belief has been that it is
about 4,500 feet, and not long since the Austrian
officers connected with the war ship Donayt made s
rough measurement with an aneroid barometer, and
reported its height at about 4,800 feet. Prcf. Alex
ander of Oahu College, measured a base line on the
Waikiki road a few weeks since, and from this, with
the aid of his fine transit instrument, found the height
ef the peak to be 8,110 feet. This was probably the
first attempt ever made by a competent surveyor to
obtain an accurate measurement. The past few days
of remarkably cletr weather, during which the
outlines of the islands of Kauai and Maui, with the
smaller islands around the latter, could be distinctly
seen from our ridges, have enabled Mr. C. J. Lyons
to make measurements of Konohuanui peak. He
was aided by the very superior transit instrument
and vertical circle belonging to the Commissioners of
Crown Lands. Taking for his base line a distance of
1719 feet on School, near its intersection with
Nuuanu street, he found the road at this point to be
37 feet above the level of the sea. The peak of Ko
nahuanui was found to be 3.078 feet above the inter
section of Nuuanu and School streets, giving the
total height of the peak above the sea 3,115 feet.
This corresponds within five feet of Prof. Alexander's
survey, showing that there can be no doubt as to the
accuracy of both. From another station, near the
foot of Punchbowl, Mr. Lyons made another meas
urement of the same peak, and the result was 3,175
Tbe mean of the three observations would give
3,116 feet. The height of Kaala peak, in the Waia
nae mountains was found by Dr. Gairdner, of the
L-Exploring Expedition, to be 5o5Qfeet which is the
only survey ever made of that peak. lnese are the
two highest points on Oahu. The slight variation in
the three measurements of Prof. Alexander and Mr.
Lyons may be owing to refraction caused by a colder
or warmer temperature of the atmosphere on the
mountain. They are, however, sufficiently alike to
be reliable. '
Mr. J. W.- Kino's Cask. On Wednesday Mr. J.
W. King was brought before His Honor John Mont
gomery for sentence on the charge of common nui
sance. His Honor referred to fhe plea of guilty, by
advice of counsel, and said that it only remained for
him to fix such penalty as in his judgment was fit
and proper under the circumstances ; that after a
perusal of the depositions of the females who, in the
course of a disgusting traffic in obscenity, had been
induced to expose their persons, and permitted them
selves to be, photographed in positions revolting to
common decency, there can be no doubt but that the
offense comes under the provisions of tbe statute.
The testimony proves that the traffic has been carried
on for a long time, and down to the period of the is
suing of the search warrant, showing elearly that
there was no remorse for the great wrong that had
been inflicted ; that after a close scrutiny of the evi
dence of this great iniquity the less excuse was found
for any mitigation of the severest penalty of the law,
(which is imprisonment.) so far as the prisoner was
personally concerned, and which would be imposed if
he stood alone. But the consequences of this dis
graceful conduct would fall with crushing force upon
a person indissolubly bound to the prisoner, who is
manifestly innocent of any possible complicity in the
onense ; a circumstance which he could not in com
mon humanity overlook, and whose peculiar position
must enlist the synmatby of any man possessing a
epark of humanity, and having in mind the command
of high authority that justice should be tempered
with mercy he had decided to impose a hue of S400.
Score one for the Police Magistrate.

place ; aud he meets a clieclc in his ambitious moves, which
arise entirely from his having the dun in hia exaltation, iu time
to his ascendant. At bis laU birtnday mars was on his ascen
dant, which indicates farther quarrelaoine and discontented
conduct on his part this season. He will meet trouble, by the
death of a female, not far from this time. On the first dny we
fiud Mars on the ascendant of tbe King of Sweden : which will
excite him to quarrel, and he may gain some move on the
chessboard of destiny, since he has Jupiter now very near
We would not, however, have our German friends
grow despondent, as the astrologer may have made a
mistake in his calculations.
E5f News comes to us of the death of Mr. Thomas
Shiel, on the 4th inst., at Lahaina. From the little
intercourse we have had with this gentleman we
judged him to be possessed of high scholarly attain
ments, and a rich and varied experience, such as is
only acquired by extended travel and much reading.
Some years ago he became temporarily editor of the
government paper, but resigned the position thor
oughly disgusted at the obsequiousness required of
the incumbent of that office. Little is known as to
his family or connections. We have received no
particulars as to the cause of his death, but presume
that it adds another to the long list of sudden deaths
which have been so frequent of late.
Fete Napoleon. Monday next, (the 15th inst,)
being the anniversary of the Fete of His Imperial
Majesty, the Emperor of the French, a solemn To
Deum will be sung in the Roman Catholic Church of
this city. Special seats will be reserved near the
altar for II. 11. M's., Ministers and other officers of
His Government, and fur the Diplomatic and Con
sular Corps We are requested to say that Mons.
Ballieu, His Imperial Majesty s Consul and Commis
sioner, will te nappy to receive ms countrymen,
friends and others, at his residence in Nuuanu
Avenue, between the hours of 12 m., and 2 p. m., of
that day. Madame Ballieu will also be happy to
receive at the same time, those ladies who may be
pleased to call on her on the occasion of this anni
Sometime since we heard that the rights and
immunities granted the ships of the steam lines were
being abused by certain parties who seem to be
running the government machine just now. A ship
master not long ago was told that his wharfage
would have been free had his vessel been consigned
to certain parties. This is giving too much of an
advantage to our friends, and is unjust to others
who have an equal Tight to the patronage ot the
government. We suggest that the Minister of the
Interior look into this matter, and if the public
treasury is defrauded, set things straight.
A Steam Bath. 'Yesterday the Pelt hauled along
side the bark Fidelitat, and through a hose pipe
poured hot steam into the bark's hold, for the pur
pose of destroying tne centipedes, scorpions and
other noxious vermin which, it is reported, the hold
is filled with, taken on board with the cargo. Mexico
is famous for her deadly reptiles, and as Capt. Brown
thought we had enough of them here already, he
gave them the benefit of a steaming. If it takes the
sting out of them, all right. Report says there were
snakes on board ; doubtful.
Earthquake. A severe shock of earthquake was
felt in this city and all over this island, at thirteen
minutes past 4 o'clock Sunday morning, August 7th.
It woke up many from a sound sleep ; others, however,
were cot disturbed. On Molokai it was more severe,
and shook crockery from shelves, rattled doors and
windows. At Waimea on Hawaii, it was the heaviest
shock felt since April, 1868. Mauna Loa is evidently
getting ready for an eruption.
We are assured that the soldiers were sent on
board the Solo to quiet the fears of the coolies, who
it is said were possessed with the idea that the devil
was on board. Taking into consideration the treat
ment they experienced upon coming within the juris
diction of our " Master and Servant Law," it is not
surprising that they should think that his Satanic
Iajeety bad visited tne snip to see now the law op
erated. No doubt he was satisfied.
