Lo, the Poor Maori ! In a recent New Zealand
newspaper we read that Te Tapihana the irre
pressible is deranged and is in chirge of a guard at
Aotea, and that King Tawhiao has taken to dram
drinking. Perhaps the cheapest way of ending all
difficulties would be to send up an unlimited quan
tity of rum to Tonkangamutu.' This sounds
strangely enough, coming from a Christian English
man. Treaties, missionaries and gun-powder having
failed to bring the natives to freely part with their
lands, the utlima ratio is proposed of killing them off ;

NOTES OF TIIE WEEK.
For the East. The clipper packet barks D. C.
Murray and Comet both sail for San Francisco on
Tuesday next. A pretty even match for a two thou
sand mile race.
The Molokai Lepers. William Humphreys and
Eaaumoana, the two leaders in the recent disturb
ance among the lepers on Molokai, were brought to
Honolulu on Thursday. We have not learned what
disposition will be made of them.
Sickness on Kauai. It is reported that a good
deal of sickness prevails among the natives at Koloa
and Waimea, Kauai, and a number of deaths have
occurred. The disease is fever, and resembles that
whicb preTaiie(i on Mani 8 t-
More Kahcna Practice. A native man named
Kaue was arrested yesterday on a charge of prac
ticing medicine without a license, a woman and her
j infant having died under his hands. The case comes
on in the Police Court this mornin-.
j The Fair The Fair on Tuesday evening last, in
! aid of the fund for relief of the French widows and
! orphans, was well attended, and was in every respect
a success. We understand that the total receipts
amounted to S'1,600.
A Kew Sign. A very handsome sign, painted by
Richards, at . Benfield's, King street, was put op
yesterday in front of Whitney's Bookstore. As a
work of art, it will compat e favorably with anything
in jtg lin anjwhere.
Admitted to Practice. Mr. Edward Preston.
fwrmerl a practitioner in the Courts of New Zealand.
from which country he brings high recommendations.
was this week licensed as an Attorney and Counselor
at law in the Courts of this Kingdom.
Summer Weather. Barring an occasional April
shower, the weather has settled down into the usual
weather cerulean skies and cooling trades which
so naturally belongs to our island climate. The
evenings and early mornings are delicious for walk
ing and riding.
Returned. The brig Curlew, which sailed for
San Francisco on Tuesdny last, returned yesterday
morning, having carried away her foretopmast head
on Wednesday forenoon, to windward of Kauai. She
will require new spurs, and will be detained until
about Tuesday next.
The " Live Yankee." This sloop, which was
sunk at the wharf last winter in a rain storm, was
801(1 ttt auction recently for $360, and bought, not
by Mr. Thoma8 Clarkf (who dislike3 the ingco;rect
notoriety the Gazette gives him) but by an associa
tion of several mechanics, who are going to put her

! Valuable Land for Sale. We call attention to
j the advertisement in another column, of a sale of
1 valuable land near the city, to take place on Saturday
next. The situation is excellent, and the prospects
are that in a few years, judging by the growth of the
in rKar Hi.ju.rinn tha Into ;il Ko .fl
"f , , , e J
enhanced in value.
.A Fossil Mr. J. S. Lemon has shown us a sea
j shell, found at the depth of 20 feet below the surface
of the round' in dl&lD? a WeU 0n h5s V "
Kulaokahua. The shell is one of a number found,
and is of the kind known by natives as the olepe,
that are obtained on the mud flats at Ilalawa. Their
presence at that depth shows that the sea once flowed
The Dull Season. Already people are beginning
to complain of dull times, and money scarce. Most
of the spring whalers have come and gone, there be
ing but a few more to touch here, including two
from home, and their wants are soon supplied.
Aside from the occasional short-lived excitement we
may have from the calls of the two lines of Austra
lian steamers, everything bids fair for a very quiet
summer. Just the time for a trip about the islands.
Schooner Overdue. The schooner Kamaile,
.Tnlinonn which sailed from here for Jarves Island.
Februftry 9th and b.a9 consequently been absent
over two months, is much overdue. The C. Jlf.
yardt which sailed for the Guano Islands on the
of j. 8evera, weeks ag0f an(1
sailed again on the 4tlt instant. She will make a
search for the missing schooner among the islands.
! The Kamaile was deeply loaded with supplies and
j carried a number of laborers for Jarves Island.
By Ixdcstrt we Thrive. We were interested and
pleased the other day, at seeing a native woman
seated in the recess of a window at the Court House,
busily engaged in sewing. On inquiry we learned
that she had been subpoenaed as a witness in an
ejectment etse, and probably having had some pre
vious experience of "the law's delays," had come
provided with her sewing work, and so industriously
improved the hours during which she had to wait.
Such a woman ought to make a good wife.
1 Ecoxom:cal House Bcildisg. A native living not
far from Punahou College wanted to build a hen-coop
and an adjoining watch-house. Not having himBelf
the requisite lumber, he appropriated from time to
time some that was handy, lying about the College
premises. The constant disappearance of small lots
of boards, shingles, etc.. and the growth of the
hen-coop and attendant shanty appeared to go on so
regularly together, that an investigation was the
result before the Police Magistrate last Wednesday,
when the economical builder was sent to work for
the government for six months.
A Rcsawat axd a Smash. Last Wednesday af
ternoon, a native Jehu was undertaking to break in
a young horse in a two-wheeled affair. Driving
along King street, the animal became restive, bucked
and reared, but the driver expressed his determina
tion to drive to Waikiki and " take the sulks out of
him." Suddenly the horse took a start, and went
off in the desired direction on a furious gallop. Near
the corner of Fort street, one of the shafts of the
vehicle broke, and the horse went into a display of
his agility in kicking and rearing highly entertain
ing to the lookers on, ending in his bolting into an
open gate near by, first pitching his driver head
foremost to the ground, along which he slid several
yards with the momentum. Strange to say, the
only hart be got was a considerable quantity of skin
scraped off his legs.
Opium Seixikg. The pernicious practice of nsing
opium is rapidly spreading among the natives,
through the facilities afforded for procuring the drag
by unlicensed dealers. There is one regularly licensed
dealer in the city, who paid about 10,000 this year
for his privilege. But there are wretches who hide
away in unfrequented places, and who for a trifle
pander to the acquired and deadly appetite. Last
Thursday a Chinaman was brought np in the Police
Court for selling opium to natives without a license,
and being found guilty, was fined $250. He appea'ed
to Judge Kamakau, of course. The practice of the
natives, as appeared from the evidence, was to some
times smoke the opium at the Chinaman's, and at
others to take it home with them, in 25 cent pack
ges, there to enjoy the opium cum dignitate.
Ball on Moxdat Next. The organization of
temperance men in Honolulu, known as the " Good
Templars," celebrate the second anniversary of the
establishment of the Order in these islands, by a
ball on Monday evening next at the Olympic Halt
The Assembly some four months ago under the
auspices of the same Order, will be remembered as
one of the best conducted and pleasant of social
gatherings, and every preparation has been made
that the present shall be even better. The whole
affair, as will be seen by advertisement, is simply

Injured Lssocexce. There was a tableau of it at
the station-house a few evenings ago. The police ;
brought in several individuals, who, as they each
carried a bundle and were extra clothed, had the ap- j
pearance of people about going on a journey into j
the country. On entering the station, they en
quired, with no little exhibition of virtuous indii:na
tion, how it was that people could not go quietly i
about their business, interfering with nobody else's i
business, without being thus unceremoniously ar
rested and brought to the station T But on examin
ation it turned out that they were run-away sailors,
and their bundles contained a goodly store of provi
sions, besides a bottle of whisky, wherewith to regale ;
themselves in their proposed retreat in the hills. ;
They were provided with a night's lodging and sent i
back to the ship next morning, to reflect on tlie 1
difficulty of running away on Oabu, and the sum
that will be charged for the expense of their catching, j

the aid of the everpresent constable was secured, i
and the rebellious dame was marched off to the (
station-house, followed by the rabble of boys and j
men. There she relented, and declaring herself '
ready to go home, was discharged from custody.
The amount of matrimonial bliss to result from the

Imperialism ix Honolulu. We were somewhat
startled the other day on observing over the door of
Whitney's book-store, a gilt crown over the word
"Imperial," in raised letters. We at once com
menced to cogitate as to what these cabalistic letters
could mean, and our suspicion that they really
meant something was heightened by obuerving a
prominent Government official gazing intently at the
same phenomenon, with a purturbed air, and event
ually walking off shaking his bead. What could it
all mean ? Suddenly we recollected that the " Daily
Bulletin " board had recently displnyed a handsome
likeness of Thakombau, King of the Fijis, and we
put that and that together, and concluded this was a
sign of the coming Empire of Polynesia." Wish
ing to hail the rising sun, we " applied within " for
the position of Minister of Foreign Affairs under the
new regime, modestly intimating that having read
Mark Twain's ''Innocents Abroad," we considered
ourselves qualified for the performance of the ardu
ous duties. Imagine our disappointment ou being
told that the sign which had so excited us was only
that of the Imperial Fire Insurance Company of
London, which takes the risk of the store burning
The Kilacea. News was received here on Thurs
day morning last, by the arrival of the Warwick,
that the steamer KUauea, which left here on Monday
evening for the Hilo trip, was ashore near Kauna
kakai, on the west side of Molokai. Full particulars
as to all the circumstances have not yet been received,
by which to account for ' the fact of the steamer
running on shore in a spot out of her course, in
pleasant moonlight weather, and with a smooth sea.
The steamer was under orders to proceed off Kauna
kakai, (about eight miles beyond where she struck)
there to await the approach of a boat with passengers
from the shore. At about one o'clock, on Tuesday j
morning, the vessel went on the reef of coral and
sand, which at that place makes a bend inshore, so
that she must have been running at the time directly
towards the land in a line parallel with Kaunakakai
beach. It is reported that the Captain and mate were
on deck and looking out at the time, which makes
the accident still more unaccountable. Opinions
were divided among parties on the spot, some believ
ing that the vessel will prove a total loss, and others
that she can be got off. On the forenoon of Tuesday,
both the false and real keels had come off and drifted
away, and as she careened over, the larboard fires
were put out by the incoming water. The pumps
were becoming choked with sand, which would prove
that there was a hole in the bottom. The passengers,
among whom were a number of ladies, and mails for
the windward, were forwarded to Lahaina by the
schooner Pauahi. His Majesty the King, who was
at his ranch ou the island, went on board with his
people as soon as the situation of the steamer was
discovered, and rendered every assistance possible.
Up to the time when our informant left on Wednes
day afternoon, the weather had been moderate, but
at that time, the surf began to rise. The strong
trades which set in on Thursday and have continued
since, will prove unfavorable for operations on the j
wreck. On Ihursday atternoon, tne schooner Mary,
with Capt. J. Brown, several ship-carpenters, and a
gang of prisoners in charge of an ovewer, was
dispatched to the scene of the wreck, with casks.
tackles, etc , for the work of endeavoring to get the j
vessel off. i
Some Electricity lor Iviinnlnn. ;
Kuaaina, tbou art a philosopher. Read thou the
following lesson :
Electricity is a primitive motive power. The idea
of an electric fluid is erroneous. It is a force acting
on matter, and magnetism gives it direction. Its
motion is spiral, caused by the tendency of the
electric force to proceed in a straight line, and the
magnetic force to give it a direction at right angles.
This action isneen in the bi-cuspated lightning in a
thunder storm . The general current of the electro
magnetic force proceeds in spiral waves, acting on
matter- chemically, producing powerful irresistible
molecular motion. Electricity will not pass through
an absolute vacuum, therefore fear not for the con
tents of thy cranium, Kuaaina. It must have mat
ter npon which to pass 4o act to exert its power.
In proportion as matter is magnetized, will be the
attraction of electricity for that body. Thou art a
non-oonductor, O Kuaaina.
Electricity and magnetism, by chemical action on
matter, produce beat and light, volcanoes are thereby
generated. The combination in $itu, of certain ma
terials, creates an adaptation tor the production of
this beat ; hence combustion. In all volcanic coun
tries the principal mineral ejected is iron. Electricity
has an affinity for iron and various metals, because
of their magnetic attractive power, which gives
direction to the electric force. The conductive power
must be equal to the electric force or an explosion
will follow. Philosophic Kuaaina, canst thou reason T
Electricity produces combustion by chemical action
in the interior of the earth, and that combustion
generates an increase of the electric force. Hence,
all volcanic fires generate a large amount of elec
tricity. As long as this can be conducted to the sur
face, and escape by a lava flow composed of conduct
ing materials, then there is- no danger of an earth
quake ; but when the electric force is confined by
overlying non-conductive matter, an explosion caus
ing an earthquake must necessarily follow. This
wul be more or less violent in proportion to the elec
tric force generated by the volcanic fires, and the
conductive or non-conductive nature of the mate
The history of volcanic dynamics . proves the ac
tive escape of electricity during violent eruptions.
when there is too more jtr of the earth than is
caused by the vibration of the eruption. During
the ereat earthquake at Lisbon in 1756, electricity
flamed aloDg the crevices in the mountains of Cintra,
iost as a blush should mantle thy cheek, U Kuaaina.
Now Kuaaina; when thou hast digested the above,
t will effect a cure of thine intellectual dyspepsia.
The Situation in Franco.
Before the conquering Tea tons hare fairly re
tired from France, the struggle commences be
tween contending factions, grasping to control
the Government, or rather we should saj to
construct a Government. For France, which has
experienced every form of Government known to
civilized end savage nations, is now floating on
the current of events without any Government at
nil. Each dynasty or party that has ever ruled
her in the past in eager to again snatch the helm
First we hare the Bourbons, a familj which
has been conspicuous in the annals of the coun
try since the beginning of the lourtecnth century,
coming to the throne in the person of the gallant
Henry of Navarre in 1580. Six of bis descend
ants in the direct line occupied the throne of
France, the last of whom, Charles X., wss ex
pelled at the revolution of 1830. His eon, Henry
Charles Ferdinand, Duke of Bordeaux, Count de
Cliambord, is the prewnt representative of the
House of Bourbon, and legitimist heir to the
throne, under the titlo of Henry V. The Count
is now fifty years old, and has generally resided
in Switzerland, where be has a chateau, and
whence he recently addressed the people of ' ruj
France," over whom he claims the Dirine right
to rule. But the probabilities of bis ever ascend
ing the throne are very remote, though ho is not
without adherents among the old nobility.
Next we have the Orleans family, a younger
branch of the Bourbons, descending from the
Duko of Orleans, the brother of Louis XIV.
The first on the throne was Louis Fhlllipie, in
1830, who was driven from France In 1848, after
a reign of eighteen years. His grandson, Lou in
Phillippe Count do Paris, now thirty-two years
of age, is heir to the throne. There is a party
in favor of the Orlcanists, and during the war
they have endeavored to take a part, but have
been repelled by the Provisional Government.
But in reality, the Bonapurte dynasty is the
most powerful in France to-day, despite the many
blunders or the past. The party is active and its
leaders are unscrupulous, and have almost the
entire ignorant peasantry on their side, as well
as the influence of the priesthood. Doubtlcns
Bismarck would 6ccretly approve the restoration
of the Empire as a guarantee of stable Govern
ment and a real peuce, for a time nt least.
The dynasty in represented by the lad of four
teen, now living with his mother at Chiselburst,
who amid the roar of cannon and the rejoicings
of Paris was christened Napoleon Eugene Louis
Prince Imperial. The adherents of the Empire
do Dot despair of its restoration under the re
gency of Eugenie.
The Republican party, composed of the educated
classes, residing mostly in the cities, is repre
sented by the Legislative Assembly and the Pro
visional Government. Recognized by Germany
who has treated with them for peace, and with
the veteran Thiers at their head, they have the
upper hand at present; but their hold upon the
country is by no means secure.
Last of all and most unfortunate for Franco is
the party known as the lied Republicans, or
socialists, whose strength lies in the dangerous
classes of the cities, tho communists, revolution
ists, demagogues and fanatics. Thews are equally
opposed to the old dynasties and the Republican
party of order.
With all these antagonistic elements struggling
for oupremacy, there is truly but little prospect
of a speedy settlement of the Government of
France on a permanent basis. The country is
terribly weakened by the war. Ia tho short
space of six months the Germans have captured
800,000 of her soldiers, 6,000 cannon, and vast
quantities of the munitions of war, not to speak
of the devastation of the country by the ravages
of conquering armies.
But France has seen dark days in ber history
before now. She has suffered the horrors of civil
war and been rent by social revolution ; she has '
been cursed by imbecile rulers and overrun by
foreign enemies ; her people have suffered the
bitter extremes of misery and misrule. But
Phoenix-like, she has always risen again from her
ashes with renewed strength. Has she still suf
ficient vitality to rccorer from tho crushing blow
which she has now received? To the credit of
the conquerors it may be said that we but seldom
hear from them any triumphant boasts over the
downfall of their old enemy. But Bismarck in
reported to have recently made use of tho follow
ing language to a member of the Spanish Em
bu&y: "The Latin race is used up; it has
accomplished great things, but now its destiny is
at an end. 'Ihe Germanic race is youDg, vigor
ous, as full of virtue and initiative as you wore
formerly. It is to the northern peoples that the
future belongs, and they have juet commenced to
play the glorious part which they are destined to
fulfill for -the good of humanity." These are
proud words. Napoleon tho First and the French
Dation which he led to conquest, at one time
thought themselves the children of. destiny and
the chosen agents of God, when in fact they were
not far from destruction. Ix Germany ponder

Hit. : In common with many residents of Ho

a week or two ago, that the veritable Victoria

question the authority of the Gazette, or to
indulge in doubt as to the probability of this
rare and cotly plant being forward! in such a
manner, or, as to how it could' possibly bo done.

the immense influence and generosity of thin
