A Challenge Given and AccepteL The sailers
A Useitl Book The following is a copy of the
title page of a pamphlet of some sixty pages, shortly
to be issued from the Government press. The name
of the compiler is a sufficient guarantee that it will
be accurate and reliable : " Hawaiian Tariff, and .
Digest of the Laws and Regulations of the Customs, 1
Pilot and Harbor Regulations, Positions and Bear
ings of Light Houses, Currency Tables, Postage
Rites, List of Diplomatic and Consular Agents, &c
Prepared by John A. llassinger, Deputy Collector of
Customs, Honolulu." We shall hereafter notice the
book at length.
The Nebraska. This splendid steamship of the
United States, Australian and New Zealand Line,
was an object of admiration to all who had an op
portunity to visit ber during her short stay. She is
a twin vessel to the JVkvadu, the pioneer vessel of
the Webb Line, and in nearly every respect ia her
counterpart. She is in command of Captain J.
Harding, a ship-master of long experience. Mr.
Francis Ross, formerly a ship-master from Hobart
Town, a native of Tasmania, is the chief officer ;
Mr. E. K. Rogerewell known in the P. T. Co. and
California S. N. Co.'s vessels, is chief engineer ; Mr. '
Hugh Craig, of Auckland, is the purser ; Dr. E. M.
Curtis, a graduate of the University of Vermont,
and for some years a surgeon in the U. S. Army, is
surgeon of the ship.
Desertion of a Boat's Ceew. One night this
week, five seamen belonging to the American whale-
ship Europa, Capt Mellen, laying off and on at this
port, took a boat, without leave, and came on shore.
They made various complaints of ill-treatment re
ceived at the hands of the master and officers. One
of the men is a Hawaiian, and his case was carefully
examined into by the Acting Governor, Hon. D.
Kalakaua, and Capt. D. Smith, Harbor Master's
Deputy, but as we learn, no serious cause of com
plaint was found to exist. The United States Consul,
Mr. Mat toon, has also examined into the cases of the
American seamen, with a like result, and the men
have been ordered to return to duty.

" Tiie Industrial Reformer," is the title of a
new journal, the first number of whieh comes to ns
from San Francisco. It is the declared organ of an
Order which has lately come into a vigorous existence
in the United States, and particularly in California,
which is secret in its deliberations, and has for its
declared object the reform of abuses in the labor
system, taxation, and general administration of gov
ernment. The paper before us has a long explanation
of the principles and purposes of the Order of the
Industrial Reformers," which is too long for us to
print. The following paragraph, however, is a sig
nificant plank in their platform : The protection
ut fr labor aerainst the encroachments of the unnaid
upon nig successor's shoulders : in exchange re- f
marks that durinj the late war, tie French he
of the Yacht Dauntless, challenged any of the yachts
that contested the late race, to run or a prize to
Coco Head, and the Cara Belt, as will seen by ad
vertisement in another column, comes gillantly to call,
and accepts the challenge. We have aot yet learned
the day when the trial will come off.
His Mantle. The late Geo. D. Prenvce, editor of
the Louisville Journal, was famous for witty sallies.
The following, from a late number f that pfper ',
would indicate that 'Preiitic'" ina-iie has fallen
Sunday Oonllner .A.f?aln.
Ms. Editor : I was pleased to find by your last
issue that my humble endeavor to wake up some in
dividual to a sense of the apathy into which oar
officials had fallen proved successful.
I regret though that my friend so far forgot him
self as to be abusive in the use of language ; the
poverty of his cause and argument is made clear by
the use of the epithets to which he treats me.
The views I expressed are a mere matter of
opinion and I hoped to be able to express them with
out being abused for opinion's sake. I never have
imagined that the steamers would be delayed because
of my opinion. I may be Puritanical is my belief
and opinion, but rest assured that to be styled a
sniffling Puritan " is not the worst that could hap
pen to me ; such terms do not convey the odium that
my trieud may nave intended.
My friend mistakes my ground ; there is a differ
ence between steamers beinz delayed by stress of
weather or other circumstance beyond the usual time
of arrival, and steamers which are started upon a
voyage of twenty-one hundred miles every fourth
Saturday with a time table arranged for their arrival
here every fourth Lord's Day. A passenger by the
JVebratka assured me that the ageuts of the steam
ers told him to the hour when she would arrive here.
The chief engineer of the JVebratka is reported to
have said that the steamer could have arrived here
on Saturday, but the time table stood in his way.
From the tenor of "Anti Bigot's " communication I
believe that he will be able to see the difference and
concede the soundness of my position.
In my opinion, formed after reading history, no
community can -be lax in the observance of the
Lord's Day without suffering the penalties. History,
sacred and profane, teaches of the dire calamities
visited upon those who violate its observance. Coal
in?: steamers in the ports of Europe and America
j if it is a common practice among communities
whose civilization dates back hundreds of years,
whose principles are fixed, will work results quite
j different from the same practice in a community of
! mixed nationalities, the laboring class of which nas
been recruited largely from Heathendom, and which
; only last year celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of
the arrival of the Bible and its exponents in its
j In the proportion that the day is properly or im-
properly observed by communities, the proprieties of
a Christian civilization will be noticeable. Break
; down this barrier in this community and I predict
that a long train of evils will follow through the
! Every individual in the community is, or should
' be, interested in this matter, and should use his in-
i fluence to the end that a change may be wrought ;
tut if it should so happen that there should be no
appreciable public opinion upon this question in this
community, possibly the gentlemen who control the
steamers will so arrange as to have them arrive upon
some other day. Woden.
There is sound sense in what " Woden " says as
to the time-table of the steamers. In the absence of
any necessity shown, there can be no reason why the
day of departure from San Francisco cannot be so
timed as to obviate the arrival here on Sunday, and
the rude shock that is experienced by the community
in witnessing that which the majority have been
educated to reverence as a Holy day of rest, turned
lawlessly into a day of more than ordinary toil and
bustle. We trust that " Woden " has too high a
sense of his own dignity to be annoyed by beiDg
called names classing one with those noble men of
history, the Puritans, is surely no disgrace.

Pipe Smoking and Leprosy. It is suggested thaT-
the practice, so common among Hawaiiaos, of pass
ing a pipe from one mouth to another in a friendly
group of smokers, may have -something to do with
the spread of leprosy. That contagious disease is
spread through the secretioni, is well known, and it
id the saliva of the mad dog which imparts the poison
of hydrophobia. It would tw well fot all who have
occasion to talk with natives to drop a rarning word
on this point. ;

LATER FOREIGN NEWS.
Served him Rhsht. The first case before the
Police Magistrate on Monday morning, its that of a
big native with a small wife, whom he ns accused
of beating. She displayed plain evido.ee of the
brutal treatment received, having been badly cut
over the eye, and otherwise bruised. Thiman plead
justification, but failed to show any. ThMagistrate
was of the opinion that " He who lays hi: hand upon

A Case in Banco. The public were surprised to
learn on Tuesday last, that A. J. Lawrence, Esq.,
late Circuit Judge at Maui, had been arrested on a
charge of gross cheat. The warrant, as we learn,
was issued on the oath of the Attorney General,
based on an affidavit of a native residing at Labaina.
The charge is that the native executed a document at
the instance of Mr. Lawrence which was understood
by the native and represented by Mr. L. to be a gen
eral power of attorney, whereas it was in reality a
deed of sale of a piece of land. On the part of the
defense, it is contended that the transaction was a
fair bona fide sale in good faith. The case will be
heard before Mr. Justice Hartwell, on Monday next,
at 10 A. M. It is a matter of remark that the sum
mary arrest in this case, without any previous inti
mation to the party, thus rendering difficult if not
impossible the procuring of bail, and involving the
humiliation and hardship of a night's detention in
the lock-up w:is, to say the least, unusual and un
necessary, under they&rcutnslances.
The New Bishop op Honolulu. We find in a late
number of the K. Y. Independent, the following
notice of Bishop Whipple, who we are informed is
expected to arrive shortly : Bishop nenry Benjamin
Whipple, (he likes to write it in full,) of Minnesota,
has been invited to take the diocese of Honolulu.
Bishop Whipple is the most indefatigable of bishops,
and his work in Minnesota is marvelous. If any man
could establish the Anglican Church on a sure foot
ing in the Pacific, he would be the roan. His
brother was for years in business in the Sandwich
Islands. After returning to this country, he studied
for the ministry, and returned to Honolulu as a cler
gyman ; so that Bishop Whipple has some point of
connection with the Islands, and it is thought might
killed, but slowlv risinar at length ha .irontlir L accept the diocese on account of his failing health.

A Correction. A " snapper-np of unconsidered
trifles," alias, an itemizer, should havi a care and
get hia facts right when trying to amu9 readers of
spicy locals, especially when mentioning Individuals.
A worthy shoemaker, a German, who was repre
sented in Wednesday's Gazette, as hadng had a
set-to " with a Frenchman, felt so muh annoyed
by the false statement, hat he desires U to correct
it, thinking that if uncontradicted, even though his
name ia not mentioned, it might prove ietrimental
to his character as a good, peaceable citixn, quietly
working for an honest livelihood, and not a political
brawler. The facts are, that the scizzrs-grinder,
under the combined influences of grapi juice or
some other juice and the heat of tht eun, and
brooding over the rough treatment la bdle France
has rejeired from the Prussians, imagined himself
for the moment the avenger of his country. In this
excited condition, "breathing out threatening and
slaughter,' and armed with a dangeroui weapon,
he entered the shop of a tchneider a German tailor
and proceeded to make demonstrations towards
killing a Prussian.". The Knight of the Shears,
like his countrymen in the late war, being attacked
on his own territory, seized a stick and very sum
marily ejected the trespasser, giving him as he de
served a sound thrashing. The shoemaker who lives
next door, seeing the Frenchman lying hors-de-combat
in the street, very charitably tried to act the
part of the good Samaritan, .and is rewarded by
finding himself represented by the Gazette, as hav
ing gone into a political discussion and a fight, and
s " getting weak on i" Such is fame. ' Well may
he exclaim with the kind-hearted man ia the play
" I'll never doanother kind action as long as I live." j
u8in, his ubiquity, his charming presence, his adroit
ecclesiastical management, his smooth and fascinat
ing eloquence?' If he should go to Hawaii, all con
cerned will find that they have no King Log to deal

The Late Burglary. Notwithstanding every ex
ertion made by the police, no trace has yet been dis
covered of the parties who entered a drug store
last week and stole a quantity of opium. The China
man who was arrested on suspicion, was discharged,
having fairly accounted for his whereabouts on the
night in question. The article is easy of concealment,
owing to the smallness of the packages. The proba
bility is that it will not be used in Honolulu, and
will be taken to another island for disposal. The
quantity is sufficient to make a small fortune to a
skillful manipulator of the drug. The pol.ee authori
ties on the other islands have been notified to keep a
sharp lookout on all arrivals from Honolulu. The
silence of the Gazette on the subject of the burglary
has been remarked, and the suggestion made that
like the Irishman's parrot, " though it don't spake,
it keeps up a d 1 of a thinking," in fact, that it is
a detective in disguise.
Cruelty to Animals. The ease of M. Benfield,
who was arrested yesterday on a charge of unresJ
onably beating a horse, and gave bail, will be called
this morning in the Police Court.
New Yoke. May 2. A Washington special says
that, notwithstanding the secrecy members of the
Joint High Commission have professed in regard
to the points of the treaty they negotiated, there is
no doubt that it provides for the recognition of the
claims of Englishmen for damages during our
civil war; that money compensation will be given
lor the use of the Canadian fishing grounds; that
the navigation of the St. Lawrence will be free to
our vessels ; also, the navigation of the Canadian
canals, being bound only to pay toll. The San
Juan boundary question is not yet fully settled,
but we shall probably get all we claim in that
direction. The close reticence displayed by Earl
de Gray and the English members is not so strietly
maintained by our own side. They venture to say,
in reply to questions, that the country will be
satisfied with the work, but tbey will not go into
details. Our correspondent assures us, however,
that the prominent points of the new treaty are as
stated : That our demands for indemnity for the
depredations by the Alabama are conceded ; the
Englishmen ia this country who suffered by our
civil war are to be indemnified, and our fishermen
to have the privilege of inshore fisheries, on pay
ment of a certain sum as compensation therefor by
the United States. It sbonld be remembered,
however, that the damages to Englishmen are esti
mated at some twenty million dollars more than
our estimate of damages by the Alabama.

New Yoke, May 2d Special correspondents
telegraph the following : Berlin, Sututay. An Im
perial council was held to-day, to consider tbe sit
uation of Paris. Bismarck was present. It was
agreed to notify tbe Versailles Government that a
further limited period would be .allowed for the
restoration of authority, pie enforcement of ordr
and the fulfillment of treaty stipulation, after
which Germany will take independent action to
establish law and order In Paiis. The dcunutch
will emphasize the wihb of Germany not to inter
fere in tbe internal political affairs of Frauce, but
will add that such interminable war, originating
in revolution and characterized by disgraceful ex
cesses, cannot longer be tolerated, for tbe moral
und material interests of Germany, us well as of
all Europe, are suffering.
Private reliable information leads to tbe belief
that it is the intention of the Germans to restore
tbe Regency, as the next legitimate Government,
in the event of tbe Versailles authorities not being
able to enforce their authority.

. Pioa IX. a Voluntary Prisoaer.
Mrs. Laura Curtis Bullard, writing from Rom
to the Golden Age, gives the following interesting
sketch of tbe present condition of tbe Pspacy :
lbe Pope has constituted himself a voluntary
prisoner in tbe Vatican. He has ordered tbe omis
sion of all tbe customary ceremonies of tbe church.
He allows no one to visit the galleries and mu
seums of the Vatican without a permit; and in
fact be is taking great pains to make Limself gen
erally and thoroughly disagreeable. For an in
fallible man be exhibits a degree of ill-temper at
the loss of bis temporal power that is ratber sur
prising. He has not a good word for any one.
Tbe journal which is his organ, L'Unila CatoUioa,
calls Napoleon HI. "a rascal," a poor compliment
to tbe roan who, more than any other monarch of
this century, has tried to sustain tbe temporal
power. But Popes, it seems, are not free from tbe
general weakness of humanity, which is to kick a
man when be is, or is supposed to be, down.
There is a tradition in Rome that If a Pope oc
cupies the chair of St. Peter for 25 yeara be will
be tbe last of the long line of the Aposfolio
princes and if Pius IX. lives till next June, that
tradition will bave a chance to be tested. He has
been a most unfortunate monarch, and his ill luck
is not confined to himself. It is a singular fact
that every royal house whicn has receive hia .
blessing baa been unfortunate. He blessed Maxi- '
milian aad poor Carlotta just before the ill-starred
Mexican expedition. He blessed Francis Joseph,
Emperor of Austria, just before bis conflict with
Prussia and bis defeat at Sadowa. He blessed
Isabella, Queen of Spain, and sent to ber the
golden rose, and she lost her throne almost imtne- .
diately after. He blessed Louis Napoleon and
Eugenie, and they are exiles and wanderers on the ,
face of tbe earth. He cursed Victor EmanaeL and
excommunicated him, and be Is King ol Italy, be
loved by his people, victorious over bis nation's "
enemies. His son, Amadeus, is tbe newly elected .
