An ' Earthquake.
Id bygone years, Honolulu bas at rare inter
val been treated to slight Bhocks pf earthquake,
generally su light that one half of the community,
failing , to notice or feel the tremors, has been
inclined to think the other half imagination. But
on Sunday evening last there was no suspicion
of imaginative, for all were ready to acknowledge,
and many with' fear and trembling, that we had a
genuine earthquake, one which it would be levity
to designate as " no great shakes;" it was in
fact the most severe ever experienced here. By
comparing the different times noted by a great
many observers, who claim to have had the pres
ence of mind to consult their watches on "the in
staat. we conclude ; thatf the first shock was
between six and eight minutes past ten o'clock ;
that the duration of the shocks was thirty sec
onds V that the'oscillution of . the earth continued
quite perceptibly for several minutes after the
violent motion ceased ; and that the general di
rection of the earthquake was from south of
east to north of west. Of course,' when the
number of observers constitutes the entire com
munity, but few are found whose opinions of the
particulars of such startling phenomena exactly
agree, but the above will be found the result of
the general average. .
The latter half of Sunday had been cold and
blustering; the wind blowing in- gusts from the
northeast, but occasionally lulling and dying
away for a few moments into a perfect calm, only
to be renewed, again with a strong .blast. ? It was
during one of these short lulls that the premoni
tory rumbling noioe of the coming earthquake
was beard, and many supposed at first that it was
the roar of the wind through the trees, while
others wondered at the circumstance of drays
rushing down street at that hour on Sunday
night. But immediately after the rumbling noise
followed ' the shock, at first an up and down
movement, short and quick. To this succeeded a
series of horizontal jerks, sufficiently powerful to
cause a perfectly sober person to stagger in at
tempting locomotion. This continued so long
that; the strongest minded : people began to ask
themselves apprehensively bow much longer is
this to continue? And the naturally nervous and
timid ones became terribly frightened. Some
fainted outright, others went into hysterics, and
one or two instances are reported of people falling
upon their knees and praying fervently. Let
none smile at this, for when .one finds the terra
firms apparently slipping. or rather jumping,
away from under them, the thoughts are apt to
come rather lively. 'The duration of the Bevere
shocks, as we have said, was about thirty seconds,
and then, as the rattling of windows and doors
ceased, the swinging movement of the earth suc
ceeded. This with many produced a feeling of
nausea, and some were affected to the extent of
vomiting with all the symptoms of sea-eickness.
During the remainder of the night, the nervous
ness of many who then had their first experience
of an earthquake, precluded sleep. Apprehensions,
were expressed that there would follow a tidal
wave from the ocean, and some rushed down to
the wharves, but learned nothing unusual, beyond
the fact that the crews on board the shipping had
experienced a sensation as though the vessels had
suddenly grounded on the reef. While the
motion of the earth continued, the thousands of
dogs with which Honolulu abounds, were silent
as the grave, but when it was over, tbey sent up
a clamor of astonished yelps and howls from all
Done to buildings was, contrary to expectation,
quite small. The walls of a number of stone
structures were cracked-among others, the
Queen's Hospital, the Kawaiahao Church, the
store of T. C. Henck, the Court House, and one
or two others. In the neighborhood of Knkui
street, and on the fiat beyond Smith's bridge, the
shocks appear to have been most violent, a good
deal of crockery and glassware having been
thrown down and broken in private residences.
About every clock in town was stopped, though
we have heard of one or two that were not, but
on enquiry learned that the pendulums of such
swung east and west, which fact would corrobo
rate our theory of the course of the earthquake
wave.! .- .
Incidents. . ,
Capt. McGregor, who keeps the light on the
reef, received the impression that a: vessel had
run foul oF the tower, the shock was so severe,
tie says the crunching and grinding of the piles
on which the structure stands, and the. swaying
about of the heavy lantern, were quite fearful.
He also anticipated a tidal , wave, and shut fast
bis door to keep it out. -:
A lodger in a room at the International Hotel
) which is of stone, and was considerably cracked)
got up to run out of the building, but found
himself a prisoner, the swaying of the wall having
fastened the door so that it bad to be burst open.
A party in a Chinese restaurant on Nuuanu
street, up stairs,. found their coffee-cups dancing

The Kaonaites, of whom -there are quite a

conclusion that the predictions of their prophet
were about to be fulfilled, and that the end of the

angels know that tbey were on hand and waiting,
they commenced tooting horns, which they kept
up daring the night at intervals.

A correspondent at Waialua on this Island
under date of Monday last writes as follows :
" At lOh. 10m. yesterday (Sunday) r, m., our,aU
tention was called to a tremulous notion, ae of a
heavy body moving rapidly over tbe ground, growing
in intensity each moment, until the whole house vi
brated ; and -this was immediately followed by five
waves of motion, at intervals of 1 second apart each,
causing a feeling as of a ship laboring in a short sea.
r- The timber of the bouse cracked and strained with
each passing wave, and all felt a slight nausea a
the motion ceased, j 1h jarring, rumbling feeling
was quite distiuct from that produced by the follow
ing wave. A single slight throb finished the per
formance as far as we were concerned. I judge from
the report obtained to-day tht the motion was front

Lahaina. Feb. 22, 1871.
"Ma. Enrroa The 4th dy of February 1871,
and the 19th day of February 1871, are day ever to
be remembered in Lahaiaa. The first was the occa
sion of a free fight, before mentioned, and the other
the great earthquake, at 10 o'clock 15 minutes p. u.
on Sunday. It came as near from the S. . u you
could have made it. We heard the noise like distant
thunder, long before we received tbe shock, and when
it did come, it came good. There is not au adobe or
adobe aud stone, or a stone house but what is cracked,
aod some shattered so bad that it is dangerous to live
in them. Tbe old mission church is damaged, tho
walls are all cracked. Also the fine stone building of
CoL Spalding is damaged. Then as you come along
the main road, that is cracked open for many feet.
Then along the Court House, which is damaged, and
will need repairing. So you may go the whole length
of Lahaina, and see tbe effects, until you get to the
end, where the road and other places are all cracked
open. We must have fire near us somewhere, or why
should the ground be cracked, unless it was to let the
gases out. . Both sugar mills in Lahaina have iron
chimneys and they are well braced, so that there was !
no damage done in that direction. Since Sunday!
night, we have had repeated shocks, but light. I
cannot find out by any one that the sea was affected,
every one was too much frightened to take any no
tice. In some of the stores, you could see that the
goods principally on the south side were thrown off,
but those that were on the north side were thrown
against the wall. When the shock came, it was with
a sudden jerk, then trembling, and ending with roll
ing as if you were on board of a vessel. Our Moral
Town " has had such a shaking, that no one remem
bers the like before. But all is quiet in tbe front.
We have had cloudy weather since Sunday, but as
yet no rain. The mills are hard at work and turning
out plenty of sugar as well as a beautiful quality.

man of December," to whose blundering inca
pacity she owes her present misfortunes. Ger
many, so thoroughly a conqueror, can afford to
look on almost indifferently while the French
choose their own form-of future Government, for
bo it Republic or Kmpire, or what is still less
likely, a Bourbon monarchy, tbe Fatherland "
has nothing to fear from French aggressions for a
long time to come. The present Provisional
Government, of which Jules Favre is the bead,
has tbe advantage of being recognized by tho
Germans, so far at least as treating for an armis
tice is concerned, and thus has a certs in degree of
moral support. But tbe Imperialists will doubt
less make a desperate effort to brirg about a
restoration of the Empire, and would not hesitate
at a civil war: Now is a critical time with tle
leaders of tho Government, and much depends on
their sagacity and prudence. ' If they fail in this
crisis, the result will be the Empire ogain, with the
Prince Imperial as Sovereign. No other way can
anarchy be avoided. Bat the Republican authori
ties have very unwisely declared in advance, that
neither Imperialists or Monarchists are eligible to
the Assembly. This intolerance is a bad begin-,
ning, and sounds strangely enough, coming- from
Republicans. Meantime it is stated that tho
Prussian Government had expressed Its wish -aod
its wish is law that the most perfect liberty of
choice should be allowed in the elections. But
let all tho nations rejoice and thank God with
King or rather Emperor William, that peace
once more reigns.
From America comes a sensational report, put
in circulation by the special correspondent of the
Chicago Times,' to the effect that President Grant
has determined to adopt Ben Butler's programme
respecting tho Alabama claims, and is resolved ti
address Great Britain in war-like terms. We
havo no faith in the trustworthiness of this
rumor. And if true, it would only provo that the
President does not understand the temper of tho
American people. While America and Groat
Britain are neither afraid of each other, they
neither have tbe dosiro to play the bully. for tha
entertainment of such domagogutfe as Butler.' j
Discouraging accounts come from Congress aa
to the probabilities of the proposed " steamship
subsidies for this ocean. It would arrieur that
j a lobby of unprincipled scoundrels can so fur
control the legislation of the country as to dictate
to the Pacific State members the terras on which
they will allow' the subsidy for the Australian
line to pass. They must promise to vote in favor
of other subsidies, amounting to many niillious of
dollars, aod embracing steamship lines io every
habitable portion of the glolic in fact a whole
sale system of robbery. This is a Ahamcf'ul state
of facts for the American people to havo Ut
acknowledge, but it is nevertheless true, and it
would appear that the subsidy so much talked of
for the Australian line, will have to lay over for
Bound roa California. Frank Jones, tbe in
imitable negro singer and dancer, sailed yesterday
for San Francisco in the Comet. We predict for
Frank a brilliant career in the Pacific States. Mian
