.Written for the Tacific Commercial Advertiser.
Tbe present age Las not&lone been remarkable in
discoveries .and in tbe development of the physical
sciences, but in the' matter of language and tbe
adaptation of words to ideas and subjects, it has
also made rapid advances. ; Without expatiating on
the two expressive verbs recently introduced into
our language, to gobble np " and to " skedaddle,"
we are inclined to believe that the verb to " loaf "
is more abundantly comprehensive than either when
applied to the genus iaziun cutsium. The meaning
at tbe present tiuue, however, is the very reverse of
its root in tbe old tiotho-Crerinaiiic, from laufen,
4ofeny (open, to run. Tbe genu loafer, or laziutn
cuaium, never runs. The more respectable species
are Micawbers, silting und waitiug for something to
turn up ; while the common species or tuiid geuus.
in a fog of dreamy nothingness, sit, lounge, Liis.and
idle away their time, without a thought, aim, object
or wish, while tbe more degraded crawl forth like
foul birds of night, sit on tbe verandahs or on tbe
side-walks, with just energy enough to make. night
hideous with a screeching and booting effort at a
song, and sometimes with a broken-winded accord eon
they make a noise between the shrill squeak of the
bag-pipe, the squealing of a stuck pig or tbe agonized
caterwauling of some houseless " torn." The most
persistent orgau-griuders with the dirtiest weazen
faced monkeys, a whole school of boys with tiu
trumpets, cheap drums and penny, whistles, would
be like " the voice of tbe dulcimer sweet," in com
parison. May tbe police preserve us from this low
est species of the genus, lie bears tbe same relation
to tbe Micawber of the species as the Australian and
liushmun to the higher races of maukind.
There is a larger proportion of this lower class of
genus loafer in Honolulu than any other place out
side, except it be in barbarian lands, where all the
lords of creation are loafers. Let auy person dis
guise himself like the Caliph Haroun Alnschid, and
go forth in search of adventure, from tJ till 12
o'clock, on any bright night, and he will verify the
assertion. lie need not go to the alley of the shadow
of perdition, near Kaumakapili, nor tbe many re
ceptacles of vice about the Chinese coffee houses,
but; let him pass' on the main thoroughfare, down
King street toward the bridge, and there he will find
a place where the lower species of the genus loafer
mostly do congregate. Many of these are the most
able bodied young men iu the country, such as are
needed on our sugar plantations so sadly in want of
help, ibese gangrenes on the body politic mostly
associate with tbe feminino genus whistler, the most
degraded of the loafer kind. Tbe bridge is anything
but a Bridge of Sighs." For there are borne on
the startled air loud bursts of rude laughter, fierce,
boisterous and obscene talk, and aa occasional horri
bly discordant bleating and tooting upon some cussed
instrument, with the piping treble of some squeak
ing and shrieking female, i once heard tbe cry of
murder ring out on that bridge,' on the midnight
blast, aud there was no policeman visible nearer
than the station house. Probably tbe genus alluded
to is privileged a sort of lazaroni, like that of Na
ples, only of a more degraded type. I do not pre
tend to be a politician, und it may be policy to suffer
that species of loafer to increase in the community
they may eventually be a power they may produce
a Massauiello. But I have nothing to do with
police regulations, and. I have no right to suggest
where oue or two ought to be stationed, or at least
occasionally to perambulate.
The loafer musi-cuss is a biped of an entirely
different kind from those described above. He stands
upon bis privileges, and when he belongs to a band
(?) he dresseth in an equivocal white uniform, and
strutteth aliout and parudeth the streets, like those
brave defenders of the country, that we see march
ing in all tbe pomp, pride and circumstance of
ge-lorious war, to tbe tap of the drum, bent on the
lofty deed of relieving tbe guard fit the hale paahao.
That is an institution, but the loafer musi-cuss be
lieveth himself a greater. Every evening he marcb
eth up to a kind of sombre, barn-like structure on
the Ewa road, where he dealeth out crack-winded
notes in every key from the hoarse roar of a. bull
frog, to the finest treble squeak of a famished prairie
dog, and then with a grand finale ad diaOolum,
about 8 P. M., he breaketh up and mnrcheth toward
town, not as he went forth, but a loafer revived, ex
cited, animated and generally accompanied by soue
half dozen wahines of tbe genu whistler, who hang
on bis skirts like the stragglers of an army, and
singing in the most boisterous fashion, jarring, dis
cordant and out of tune. lie generally pauseth near
tbe bridge and clenreth his throat or exchangeth a
few obscene compliments with the sitting loafer de
graded.' He stoopelh to this, the musi-cuss, and un-
beudeth from the noisy world of uncouth sounds in
which he revelleth. Where musi-cuss or his feminine
nwmrmniment clinnerseth after that, or whether he
vauisbcth like a note of his cracketr tromoonc, mis
deponent saitb not ; but he knows well that a most
unmusical and unearthly noise is heard around until
a late hour in the night. The howling of the poor
canines, against which law and police have leveled
their vengeance, was harmony in comparison. .
At tbe risk of being accused of not having a finer
ear for music than a donkey, 1 would respectfully
suggest that all such bands would add more to the
productive wealth and prosperity of the country, by
being dis-banded and employed around sugar kettles
and centrifugals, than on base drims, trombones
and other brazen and air startling instruments. Let
it not be understood that the writer reflects on the
teacher of such musicians : he is no doubt competent
and efficient, and cannot be considered responsible
for bis charges, after they have left nis immediate
Boat Race. The yachting season will, be inau
gurated on Tuesday the 28th, by a trial between
the Fearless and King Philip, for a purse of $100.
The Fearless is owned by J. I. Dowsett and will be
sailed by Thos. Clark. . The King Philip is the
property of the Love Brothers, and will be man
aged by Mr. Chas. Long. As there has been con
siderable rivalry between these boats, we expect
to see some sport. This will be the first chance the
King Philip has had te show herself; while tbe
Fearless has already won quite h repttittion. The
boats will start from Brewer's wharf, and following
the course of the channel, out to leeward of tbe
spar and bell buoy, 'round a stake boat about a
mile to leeward of the bell buoy, and back the
same route, to windward of the buoy iu the harbor.
Thb Sailobs' Home This favorite resort of the seafaring
portion of the community, under the nianafcnient of Mrs.
Whitcus, continues to sustain its old repainting of being one of
the most comfortable and homelike boarding and lodging
houses,' for masters, officers and seamen, in the city.' As a
quiet boarding house for residents, its attractions are unrivaled.
' Rembbandt Pictcbes. We call attention to tbe new and
beautiful style of remhrandt pictures 'taken by Mr. A. W.
Osborne, on King street. His pictures are na fine and perfect
as any from New York or Paris. We are glad lo be able to
inform our friends that Mr. Osborne will open in May a beauti
ful buMiness place on Fort street, that will excel anything in
the photographic line ever attempted in these islands. His
success has been all owing to his superior style of work.
Three thousand card pictures have been sent out by hint in less
than three months. We wish we had plenty of just such busi
ness men in town as Mr. Osborne. More than twenty years e-f
experience entitles him to rank as one of the first photographic
artists in this or any other country.

A Disputed Assessment Case.
An important case is before the Supreme Court
in banco, the hearing of the argument in which
is set for Monday next, j, The title of. tbjf cassis
The Minister of Finance vs. II. llackfeld & Co.,
and the matter in diepute grows out of the as
sessment of. .taxes. . The case comes before the
Court in tbe nature of a submission! and the
principal points claimed by the. parties are enu
merated below. ' The mere amount of money in
dispute is 'unimportant, in comparison with the
principles of law involved, ., ,
' Abstract of Submission. "
That the personal property of said firm of II.
llackfeld Co. was assessed for taxation at the
sum of $600,000 for the year 1870. -
That a considerable portion of said sum of
$600,000 was not at the time when the assessors
called upon them within the confines of this King
dom, and that said firm render return of 3375,485.21
as of tbe 1st of September. 1870.
That by reason of delays ia the assessment
llackfeld & Co's. remedy under the tax law was
rendered futile by lapse of time. , .
'' That 'the tax books were "not completed' and
delivered to the Tax Collector until January 2d,
. That appeal is waived by tbe Minister of Finance;
appeal Board not . appointed under the statute,
saute bein impracticable ; but both parties agree
to submit, the case to tbe Supreme Court.
That llackfeld & Co. have money and goods in
the United-States & Europe, the property of the
firm, which said money and goods form a portion
of tbe SG00.000, the same being subject to tbe
order and disposal of II. llackfeld, senior partner,
now and for a long time past residing in Europe.
That llackfeld & Co. claim that tbey should not
pay taxes on property thus situated. .
.That the Minister of Finance claims that said
property and moneys are part of tbe ussets of tbe
firm and form a part of tbe common wealth of this
country, and that every citizen is bound to pay

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
39- Owing to the press of matter, several
terestlng articles are crowded out.
Stcii is Fame. From tbe Gazelle we learn that
Capt. Crane of tbe Xeltie has discovered that fine
turnips grow iu Labaina.
, Acknowledgments. Ours are due to Capt C. II.
Ilewett, of the M. A. Reed, and Mr. Newman, Purser
of the City of Melbourne, for files of papers. f '
Installation. Tbe installation services;of the
Rev. W. Frear, as pastor of Fort Street Church,
will take place to-morrow' evening. -
, Pastor at Lauaina. We learn that the Rev.
Mr. Kuaea, who is one of the most eloquent of
Hawaiian clergymen, has been chosen as pastor of
the Congregational Church in Luhaina. ;
Ronawat Coxvicts. Marshal Parke offers a
reward of $50 for Keawe and $29 for Kalama, the
two prisoners who escaped a short time ago, and
who are now supposed to be concealed somewhere
in the neighborhood of Moanalua. . ... . - -
Impuotements. We notice a new wooden build
ing by Dowsett &, Co., corner of Queen and Fort
streets. On the corner of Merchant and Nuuanu
streets, A. S. Cleghorn is refitting for a . store
beneath and a daguerreotype establishment ' up
stairs. The old restaurant building adjoining is to
be torn down and a new one erected in its place.
1 A Birth on tub Ocean Wave. During the last
trip of the KUaued to Hilo, she carried into port
one more passenger than she. bod . on her list from
Honolulu. A baby was born, and although it
evidently came coder tbe category of " stowaways,"
yet Captain Harrison is said to have performed tbe
duties of midwife and nurse with care and skill. .. . .
Concrete. Tbe use of concrete in building is not
new in these islands, as has been asserted by some.
In 1863 or 18C4, the sugar house on the Waihee
Plantation, on Maui, was built of stone, and a fine
edifice it is, but the corners nnd lintels of the win
dows were made of concrete, in the same manner that
the new Post-office bnilding has been constructed, j
Wanted a Bath. On Thursday noon, a prisoner,
a native, employed in the gang at work on the
Esplanade,. quietly took water" by swimming
over to f isherman aj Jfoint, wnere ne was suose-
qnently found by a policeman, comfortably stowed
away in a house. Of course, be only went into the
water for a bath, and afterwards was. resting .in the
house that was all. .
Grapes in Cautornia. At the last State Fair
held in California, some clusters of Muscat grapes
were on exhibition weighing twenty pounds, and
Mr. Nicholson, of Marysville, had some clusters of
other varieties .weighing fifty pounds, and not an
imterfeot berry ; . thy ? were masses rather J than
clusters. Can yoa approach that, Labaina?
hear from Marshal Oudinot. '
Tub Dredging Machixe. This public institu
tion, we learn, will be again put in operation
during the coming week, in dredging about the
wharves. The old hands who formerly worked it,
are again to be employed John Mitchell as engin
eer nnd George Carsly to turn tbe long ladle that
bails up the mud. And so the Esplanade will
begin to grow again. . . : .c
Cruelty to Animals.A fellow was arrested
the. otb.ee. night for brutally beating a doff- . H
was'admi'tted to bail i4 the snm of $10 at the Station-house,
bnt forfeited it. failing to put in an ap
pearance next mornins. He was a Chinaman. It
must be consolinjr to the dogs, in these times when
every manV hand appears to' be against them, to
know; that they have srot rights. Officer Thomas,
who made the arrest, deserves credit, inasnanch as
this is not the first time thai be has arrested brutea
io human form for cruelty to animals. -

ti. Ktt;..nliouse right
iu front of the lion's den in a perfectly loose and
demonstrative state of intoxication, of which fact
the policemen standing by ' appeared to be quite
oblivious. "Why don't tbey arrest that chap?"
inquired Quirk. "Oh, he has shipped," replied
Gammon, and ain't spent his advance yet."
A Suggestion. Now that our worthy Postmaster
has moved into the new building, we would suggest
to him the propriety of hanging up a board outside,
on which may be displayed, for tbe information of
strangers and people generally, the rates of postage
on letters and newspapers to tbe United States, Great
Britain and Australia. This would be a great ad
vantage to the traveling public, and save our Post
master answering innumerable questions. We give
this A3 a suggestion. '
A Royal. Birthday. Wednesday last, 22d insL,
was tbe 74tb birth-day of King William' of Prussia,
now however Emperor of Germany, although not
yet formally crowned. The Sags on tbe govern
ment bouse, tbe battery, consulates, shipping in
port, and from many private residences, were dis
played in honor of tbe day, and most of onr Ger
man fellow-citizens closed their places of business
for a holiday. -Dr. E. Strehz gave a hinch'at his
"drug store, corner of Fort aud Hotel atreetVwboro
the health of the Emperor and other appropriate
toasts were duly honored by a large assemblage" of
guests.. A well-known geutleman of our acquaint
ance, with whom the diabolical practice of punning
has become one ol bis daily customs, being called on
for a sentiment, silently drew forth bis watch, and
placing it on a bottle of Jlhein tctin. remarked
sententiousl y "gentleman, there's my sentiment."
The Teutons at once appreciated and rapturously
applauded " The Watch ou the Rhine."
? The DorJ Days. Since tbe '20th Instant, every
day in Honolulu has , been a' day of grief and
doom to the dogs. Saturday was tbe last day of
grace for non-tax-paying canines, and on Monday
morning the 'work of slaughter commenced and
has been carried on through the week, only about
sixty however having been bagged by . the police.
This is owing to the fact that many are concealed
or taken out of town. ' While tbe law is In force in
every district, it is doubtful whether It will be as
strictly carried out in tbe remote districts as iu tbe
metropolis.- After tbe work of death commenced
on Monday, and it was ascertained that tags could
be ' purchased, the Station-house was fairly be
sieged with applicants, anxious to procure, at al
most any price, tbe magje piece of copper that
would ensure tbe safety of their pets. And it is a
matter of curious remark to observe what num
bers, of ill-looking curs and veritable t'yaller
dorgs " ate now parading about with "braw brass
collars," conspicuously displaying the tag. Tbe
canines themselves appeared to be quite aware tf
the state of affairs. A tagless individual could be
known by his uneasy, suspicious look, as he hur
ried along apparently anxious to escapo observa
tion, never venturing within a hundred yards of
tbe Station-house, and breaking into a dead run
whenever be caught sight of a policeman. And
then, when lassoed at Inst and dragged igno
miniously to lie shot, with bis last breath be sends
forth his protest of mingled despair and indigna
tion at unequal laws. A verse from tbe poet of
the late Punchbowl reads well here':
-: Hear the lean and homeless dogs, 3 - - -'
Wretched dogs I
Thievish dogs ! ' '
Banged and baltered.
What a tale of misery their turbulency tells ! "
In ineatartled air of night, it -
How they yell out their aflright I
Too much horrified to growl, ' ;.
They can only howl, howl
At the moon.
' What a tale their terror tells ' ' ' '
Of despair ! ' '
TTow they snarl and yell and roar.
What a horror they out-poor - ''
On the bosom of the palpitating air !
What a world nf loathing tho't their howling dirge compels !
. --. In the silence of the night - -
How we shiver with affright
At ihe weird and fiendish malice of their tone I .
" From the parched skin of their throats,-" vV
Is a groan."

so slow to appreciate tbe merits of the scheme, and
should have suffered other proposed subsidies of a
more or -less questionable nature to become mixed
and engrafted with it. - Sooner or later we must
believe that the necessary aid 'will be granted.
Tbe New Zealand Government aas, by its liberal
action, virtually inaugurated tbe Australian line
on a substantial basis, and it will be a disgrace to
tha United Steles if it does not carry on tbe work
so nobly commenced. -.- Onr State alone could bet
ter afford to errant a subsidy than can New Zealand,
and the action of Congress, so far, would seem to
indicate tbat our Senators and members care very
little for American commerce. . at--v

Tbey oan have no knowledge whatever of what

therefore be taken simply as an Indication that
Great Britain is sincerely desirous of a itettlemeut.
There can be only two issues to tbo coutrovery
settlement or war. If there i to l no war, ao ad
justment might as well be effected as speedily as
possible. There certainly can be no advantage In
keeping opeu.a source of mutual . irritation. .No
great benefit Is-to -be derived from two nations
constantly biting their thumbs at each other.
Enongh of Ink and eloquence has already been ex

From the Alta of the 4th Instant, we copy the fol
A treaty has been signed by Thiers and Bismtrck,
and we are justified in expecting ratification and
peace. The signers are not ordinary diplomats; each
is the leading statesman of his country, with the con
fidence and political favor of Jiis nation. Though the
terms may not be satisfactory In every reaped, they
should be and probably will be regarded as tbe best
tbat each could get, and far better for both than a
continuation of hostilities.' " -
tThe most important condition is the cession of Al
sace and Lorraine. , Tbe conquests which have coat
France nearly a hundred years of fighting are to be
given up, and with them the hope of the Rhine
boundary. And with them go the prestige and the
power. . The cession is not like,thoso which France
was compelled to make at the end of the reigns of
Louis XIV. and Napoleon I., when provinces con
quered only a few years before, and not yet assimi
lated, were taken back. Alsace and Lorraine have
been identified with France so long that a large part
of the population are thoroughly French In feeling;
and their surrender not to united Europe but to
Germany alone is a standing noticfl to alt tb1 woi hi
that the French military power is no longer the firct.
Besides giving up some of her most valuable
territory, including the gate to Germany, France
agrees to pay 320,000,000 Prussian thaleri; equal
to about $225,000,000 gold. This would b a trifle,
if she were still as rich as she was a year ago, but
her National debt has been greatly increased, bet
fields hafe been laid waste, her-cities plundered,
ber factories ' closed, her commerce thrown Into
disorder, more than one hundred thousand men
havo been killed, twice as many havo beon'ririven
from peaceful employment ana demoralized, ami
over largo districts the farmers bare neither seed,
shelter, agricultural implements nor draft animals.
The devastation has been frightful.
Tbe peace ought to bo welcome to both Franco
aud Germany. -The latter have gained almost n
much as any nation ever gained in so short a con
test. The gain is national Union,' elevation from
no inferior position to the first military place iu
Europe, an increase in territory, and a gn-at stim
ulus to commerce, manufactures, nationnl pride,
and intellectual activity. The prico of peace m
very costly to France, but, after all, much cheap r
than war, especially disastrous war. The soilfs
still fertile, tbe skies are still bright, tbe land still
occupies a central position ; tbe people are still
happy jn their disposition, industrious and skillful
in the useful and ornamental arts. Such a count 7
must prosper. Christendom, generally, will rejol
that peace Is-ro-establhdied, that commerce at.d
manufactures will soon resume their Interrupted
course, . tbat the policy of war and conquest has
again been made baU-.ful by tbo misery it has
caused, and that the, organization of .the Gtrrnan
Empire has been accompanied by a solemn and
public promise that it means no aggression abroad,
but merely order and progress at borne.
- There are some indications tbat civil war may
now be added to the other misfortunes which have
befallen France. Tbe extreme Radicals manifest a
disposition not only, not to recognize the peace,
but to bring to punishment even those who have
been iitstrnrnental in obtaining It. The work
; which tbey .propose to themselves at this juncture
is merely to divido 1' ranee inp. two hostile camps
charge upon and destroy one of these cam pi. ;
likewise serve the Germans with the same sauce.
In the present condition of their country, bleeding
at every pore, trampled under foot, desolated, iu
financial straights, disarmed and prostrate, thin
course looks like nothing so much ss down-right
madness.. The result is not at all 'difficult to fore
Cast. The Germans, if tbey should find civil war Im
minent, will refuse to evacuate the positions wblch
they now occupy. Tbey have an interest In Franc
to tbe extent of tbe payment of four milliards of
francs in the space of three years. If the French
people will not establish a stable frorernment.
which will meet their demands, they may be forced
to perform tbat function -for them. Tbr, raeaps,
too. are at hand-f-merely to furnish arms, to Uie
Imperial army, now prisoners of war in Germany,
and, put Louis Napoleon at their head. The pros
pect of a restoration to their old positions would
be a sufficient motive for Imperialists everywhere
to accept such a mission from the Germans Alta,
