A Comet. The nebulous star which has been no
ticed by observers recently in the western sky, is a
comet, discovered by Herr Wirmecke, of Carlsruhe.
It reached its maximum grandeur in the end of last
month, and is rapidly approaching the sun.
Funeral Sehmon. We learn that a funeral ser
mon on the late VVm. Bennett will be preached by the
Rsv. C. G. Williamson, at St. Andrews Cathedral to
morrow evening. The Honolulu Rifles and the Order
of Good Templars, both of which bodies the deceased
was a member, will be present by invitation.
Accident from Matches. Last Sunday afternoon
a little daughter of Mr. C. W. Hart, got hold of some
card matches unobserved and playing with them by
some means they ignited, and set fire to her clothing,
enveloping the child in flames. As soon as discover
ed, the fire was smothered with a blanket, but not
without burning the child quite seriously.
Bed Bugs. These horrid pests are it seems, be
coming numerous in the city, especially in native
houses. Recently a native stated to a physician
that he feared he had the first symptoms of leprosy,
! as he was troubled at night with a crawling and
itching sensation of his skin. On examination, it
appeared that he had been overrun and badly bitten
bv bed-bugs ! ,

Handsome Sugar. We have seen some very hand
some samples of light crystal sugar, manufactured
on the Eohala Plantation at Hawaii, by Mr. McDude.
Mr. McD. has but recently arrived in the country,
seeking employme.it at his profession, that of a su
gar boiler. We believe he has some specialty about
his mode of making sugar, but can only say that the
crystals in the sample shown us excelled any thing
we have yet seen, in perfection and beauty.

Sad Accidext at Lahai.na. On Thursday last,
as some natives were employed on a dam on the
mountain back of Labaina, digging at the base of a
wall, some of the large stones gave way, crushing and
burying two of the men. One, Flonolii by name, was
killed instantly, his skull being crushed, while his
companion, Papohaku, escaped with a badly broken
leg below the, knee, and was brought down in
Tate Mixstrels. -That old IIonolnliiMvorite,
trank Jones, inimitable negroist. came flown, with
a company of minstrels, under the management of
Mr. J. E. Brooks, from San Francisco, arriving by
the Comet on Monday last Their first entertain
ment was given on Thursday night latt. to a
crowded house, and gave entire satisfaction. Our
readers may be sure of a series of side splitting
entertainments. Mr. Brooks is making some very
necessary alterations in the theatre, wbicb will add
to the comfort and convenience of visitors.

Malicious Mischief. Some time during Wednes
day afternoon last, between the hours of two and four,
the hose of the Post Office building, used for wetting
down the streets, was out by some maliciously dis
posed person. Suspicion points pretty Btrongly to
bo roe youths who have been in the habit of frequent
ing the Post Office veranda, and a reward is of
fered for information that shall lead lo detection of
the perpetrator of the outrage. Boy or man, the
person who could willfully destroy property in that
way should be looked after, as a measure of public
Native Castor Oil We have often expressed
our surprise that, among the many articles of value
that might be easily produced here, no one has yet,
so far as is known, attempted the manufacture of
castor oil. The bean, as we all know, grows abund
antly, wild, all over the country, in diflerent varie
ties. Besides being an indispensable article of family
use as a medicine, the oil as a lubricator and to, use
on leather, is superior to neatsfoot. Why will it not
pay to manufacture here, instead ofim porting the
commonly adulterated artjcJeflroin abroad? At Mr.
G. C. McLean's storfen Nuuanu street, we have ex
amined somevety pure looking samples of Castor
Oil, manufactured by him from the native bean,
whichJocks like, and is guaranteed to be, the real
The Skatutg Risk in Cocrt. Last Monday a
very inartisticaUy worded complaint, signed by some
. , . , Tr-i l .
twenty persons, was presented in ine rouce uonrx,
addressed To the City Marshal and the judg of
Court," setting forth that the Skating Rink o:
Messrs. Williams & Wallace, oa Ej.'sI street, was
common nuisance, keeping people awake of nights,
and annoying them by the noise of the skaters falling
heavily on the floor, and by the " rolling thunder
ous " sound of the skates ; the complaint concluding
with a petition that the same be stopped in order
that " we the undersigners, might live like a civilized
nation." A number of witnesses were examined,
who lived ia the immediate neighborhood of the
Hall, and who declared that the noise of the skating,
(sometimes two or three evenings in the week, and
lasting till 9 or 10 o'clock) was very annoying and
destructive of sleep, especially to one person who was
an invalid. It was admitted however, that the pro.
prietors had closed the Rink on some evenings when
a woman was reported ill in the neighborhood. To
rebut the petition several witnesses testified that,
living in the near neighborhood of the Rink, they
were not at all annoyed by the noise. Mr. Al worth, a
police officer, stated that he had nearly gone to sleep
in the Hall while the skating was in full operation,
such was the soothing effect of the monotonous
sounds. Whereupon counsel for complainant ob
served 44 that was probably the consequence of hav
ing on a full head of steam." (Mr. Alsworth con
sidered this as an insult, and representing it as such
to the counsel, the following morning an apology
was tendered and accepted in open Court, it being
stated that the allusion was not intended to apply to
Mr. A.) The case was dismissed, as not coming
ender the legal meaning of a public nuisance. Sec
tion 3 of the same chapter will better describe the
" Where only a few persons of many who are equally ex
posed are, owing to the peculiarity of their tempers meet or in
trinity, annoyed by an act or thin, the same is not a nuisance.
A when the noise of a tinman shop annoy bat a few of many
persons equally exposed."
The Calendar. To-day SepL 9, St. Deny, the
patron saint of France. A martyr, bishop of Paris,
A. d. 272. Wednesday, 13th, ITing Edward the
Confessor. Received the title of confessor of the
faith from the Pope, on bis accession to the crown of
England, a. v. 1042. He ranks with Alfred aa a
lawgiver, or rather law-collector, the Code Edward
being at the time of the Norman conquest what the
Code Napoleon has been in latter times ; it still forms
the basis of the English Common Law.
Illicit Distillation. Mr. McCully, the Deputy
Attorney General, went to Lahaina on Monday last to
investigate some newly discovered cases of liquor dis
tillation. From Capt. Crane of the JVetlie, arrived
yesterday, we learn that no less than twenty-seven
persons had been arrested as being concerned in the
business, all natives with one exception, that of a
foreigner named Cooley. Three convictions were
had on Thursday, and the trials were going on when
the schooner left. The place where the distilling was
carried on was at Honokobau, a short distance from
town, and the apparatus consisted of an 8-gallon
kettle, and a gun-barrel. The business had been car
ried on for two years post, the " stuff" being taken
to Wailuku and elsewhere, and meeting a ready sale.
Insanity. Strauss, the German shoemaker, who
it will be remembered was sent to prison for two
months detection on the 12th of July, on account of
his mental unsoundness and threatening to shoot
some one with a pistol, is in much the same condi
tion. While quite sane upon any other subject, and
complaining that he is unjustly detained, he still bus
the idea that some one is endeavoring to poison him,
and it is not considered safe that he should be at
Gabriel Gould, a ship carpenter, who was sent
from here to California by the American Consul as
insane, has been committed to the Lunatic Asylum.
He says he came to these islands with the intention
of purchasing here, but that Queen Emma ordered
him out of the country because she objected to his
marrying into the Royal family. Capt. L. Janssen,
master of the brig Francisco, alBO sent from here as
insane, was committed to the Asylum. He is very
restless, and neither eats or sleeps. He appears to
be laboring under some great mental trouble, and
mutters to himself, "Too bad ; too bad."
Committed for Trial. On Monday morning
last, Moluhi, a native living at Waiabole, in the
district of Koolaupoko, on this ielaDd, was arraigned
before the Police Magistrate of Honolulu, charged
with the murder of his wife, Louika, on the night
of September 1st L. McCully, Esq.. Deputy At
torney General, appeared for the Crown. The
evidence introduced was first, the testimony taken
at the coroner's inquest, held at Koolaupoko on
Sunday the 3d instant, before Deputy Marshal
Dayton, together with the verdict of the jury to
the effect that in their opinion the woman bad come
to her death by violence, but by whom inflicted
the jury could not declare. John Beeshing testi
fied : Lives at Sam Jacob's bouse at Waikane ;
prisoner is a neighbor there ; saw him and his wife
Louika at Jacob's between 7 and 8 o'clock, last
Friday evening ; tbey left there together before 8
o'clock, with two children, abont 3 and f years
old ; nave never seen Louika since ; she was in good
health, except that she bad weak eyes ; they ate
supper at Jacobs'; there was no quarrel between
them." Kamealoha testified : " Last Friday, was
coming from Honolulu, on horseback, and between
8 and 9 o'clock got to Waiabole, near prisoner's
bouse ; heard his voice in loud, angry tones, using
very profane language, in English ; he said repeat
edly, 4 1 break your head ;' looked and saw prisooer
standing in the water of the little stream close to
his house ; he held something in the water which
appeared like a person a woman ; he was pushing
it down into the water repeatedly, alf the while
cursing and swearing ; he then threw the woman
(as I thought it was) on to the stone wall ; he said
in native, ' now you see the consequents of your
doing ; you would have it ; I'll break your neck
Bwearing all tbe time ; pulled her oneto the grass,
from tbe wall ; tben into tbe bouse ; she never
spoke or made a noise that I heard ; prisoner did
not see me ; I then went away ; heard bis voice in
the bouse as I went ; did not interfere because I
was afraid, for be was very angry, and a bad man
when drinking, and I was alone." The remainder
of tbe testimony showed that tbe woman was alive,
but breathing stertoriously at 11 o'clock that
night ; that neighbors found she was dead in the
morning, having dii-d. as her husband said, of
fever after having fallen whenlrunk ; that at tbe

Letters from Hawaii No. 3.
from OUR traveling correspondent.
Kkaau, 4 P. M, Aug. 21st, 1871.
I sent off my last epistle by the Odd Fellow, In
arfch a hurry, as to omit all mention of Mr.
Thompson's sernMsavoo yesterday, and will only
stop to add, that 'twas characterized by his usual
clearness and force of style and Imagery, lie
placed before us the more " elegant sins " of this
world, and presented them In contrast with those
of a low, Tile nature. While commending the
moral" man for his morality, he condemned the
bypoci iHy that caused him to presume to holiness.
And be reminded his hearers of tbe neccHhity of
regeneration, and complete abnegation of self to
ensure entrance Into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Tbe Informal discourse of the evening, followed
by prayer by different members of the church, to
gether with singing, struck me as being a vunt Im
provement upon the "two sermons a day" plan.
The church Itself Is a perfect jewel : to borrow
ords of another. " Hawaii is belted around
a band of churches, and the foreign church '
at Hilo is a jewel in the buckle." He might have
added that their present pastor is tbe " tongue "
of the buckle."
Loading our "bokl" with stores for the entire
trip, we sent him on ahead, and followed ia about
two hours. The road for tbe first six miles is n
mere track over tbe low marshy ground, made firm
by paving, and lined on either band with a dense
growth of lauhala, now c.nd then diversified by
clumps of fine ohias, rising sixty, seventy, eighty
feet high, and almost invariably clothed with ie, a
parasitic vine, that adds much to the picturcsque
ness of the scene. The first cocoanut tree we met,
was at a point on the road some six miles from
Hilo, and from this place to Keaau the road is
good, wide enough for a cart. The school-bouse
here is a small thatched building, a good deal out
of repair, and destitute of furniture. The build
ing is used as a church, and is probably large
enough for the population, numbering about City.
Tbe bamlet consists of eight to ten huts, one or
two of which are very good specimens of natire
Near us is the pen belonging to Obed Spencer s
cattle ranch a salt-water pond of some extent, a
few cocoanut trees and kalo patches. Looking
out to sea. we have a fine view of an iron bound
coast, which, from Leleiwi Point on our left to
Hopoe on tbe right, a distance across of say ten
miles, does not afford a single harbor, nor stream
from inland. "Where we are now, are several
boats drawn up on the black sand, showing that
tbe seini-umphibiotis native can and does get
through the surf to ash. Our boy has prepared
the chickens that we have ordered for supper, and
Wahine, the pedagogue, (at whose bouse wo tako
up our quarters) has the table ready for us.
Tuesday, morning finds us early on the road,
and for about four miles it passes over an immense
lava plain, sparsely dotted with tbe puhala. Fur
ther on we leave this, and enter upon a more hilly
country, with a fair depth of soil, in which are
growing cocoanuts, breadfruit, guavas, Ac. Around
the school-bouse at Makuu, five miles from Keaau,
are a few huts, some upland kalo, and a broad
billy plain clothed with the customary rank grass,
on wbicb our horses feed while the school-master
examines tbe scholars gathered together here. The
school house is a shade better than tbe one at
Keaau, boasting of a bench, and comparatively
tight roof. The people gather here on the Sab
bath, forming a congregation of about fifty alto
gether. Tbe scholars, numbering twenty, (half
girls) look very bright and clean ; their singing,
both at Keaau and here, is quite good.
Looking out of tlie door which faces tbo sea, we
notice a very neat looking bouse standing on the .
cliff, and in tbe yard in front a pretty plot of
flowers, evidences of tbe inherent taste of the na
tives for bright and pretty objects. Tbe examina
tion of tbe school being finished, we pushed on
over a narrow but well defined road, of the same
character as tbe one just traversed, and in a short
time reached and passed over the famous aa of na
puu a l'ele. The most striking natural object here,
aside from the rocky waves and billows of thin
mighty lava stream, is the two lofty peaks of sand
that rear themselves midway in the torrent, far
above the level of the waves. Their appearance
is very singular, and as all our predecessors have
failed to account for their presence, we will not
advance any theory. Knowing as we do, that
none that we could set up would ditniniHh the
wonder, or set at rest tbe speculations of thoso
who may visit this spot after us. NoticVd an old
heiau, or native temple or two, and upon coining
across a flock of goats, your correspondent was
struck dumb by a reference on thu part of the
school-master to the " be-goat-istical " appearunco
of one old Billy, perched on a projecting ledge
near at hand. Could not but admire tbe fine rood
built across the broad flow, while on either bund
stretched away a vast waste of black lava tossed
into a thousand fantastic shanas, gaping with cruel
jagged chasms, curled and twisted into every con
ceivable iorm oi erest ana wave, rent, shattered,
smashed. laid, twisted, torn, upheaved, vitrified,
wrenched, writhed, yawning, zigzagged, and any
thing else you've a mind to, while we gaily can
tered along over the smooth road, as the Israelite1
of old passed through the sea, whose tunnel-torii
waves stood upheaved on either hand. Leaving
this behind, we soon reached our next restinc
place the school-house at Halepuaa. While I
write and the "school-master" puts the younj.
ones over the A E of learning, our horses are rest
ing beneath the first Icon trees that we have seer
sj far. This, the most valuable of cubinet-wooc'
trees, grows here finely, and we understand tba:
further on we may expect to see large groves of
tbe same. Tbe influences that have caused thit
tree to die out on Oabu. do not seem to Lb at work
bere ; the trees are very thrifty and loaded with
blossoms and fruit.
We have fairly entered upon the Paradise of the
cocoanut. Sending a small boy to "frog" it up
one of tbe tallest, taking with him the end of a
ball of twine, we. find, by accurate measurement,
this specimen to be one hundred and ten feet in
beighlb, and we are told of much loftier ones.
However, we don't intend to take anything upon
hearsay on this trip, excepting "legends," and
may be not those, if they have anything of the
"Aztec" mixed up with them.
The school-house bere is a very neat clap
boarded and tbatcbed building, prettily situated
amidst cocoanuts, breadfruit and kou trees. It
numbers some twenty-five scholars, who, as far as
scholarship goes, will not compare favorably with
the others that we have met. The next place of in
terest that we arrived at was tbe cave and warm
springs near the church of 1'uula. Stopping a
moment at the ' parsonage," (we found the minis
ter biihied in giving his church a coat of paint that
it needed very much,) and procuring a lamp and
guide, we traversed the rough pavement nl lava
that overlies all this land, and baited In front of a
bole in tbe ground some four feet square. Sur
mounting tbe entrance to tbe cave (for this was tt)
was a symmetrical pile of stones, heaped up by
home idle native in days gone by. Stripping off
jr o-t f our clothes, your correspondent anr! the
gt-.iJe crept Ji and disappeared from the gaze of
tl.v outward woild. Tbe aides and roof f the

Almost a. Clean Hweep.
Me. Editor : Last Thursday week, August 31st
aa Mr. Coolidge, the worthy manager of the Keaa
bala Plantation, and the hands were at work cutting
cane for the mill, and being about 800 or 1,000 feet
above the plains below, saw some of Mr. John
McKeague's bands come on his .fields and deliber
ately set fire to bis small ratoon crop, for what par
pose, we cannot say. The wind blowing strong from
the north, tbe flames made rapid strides towards the
mountains, and soon came in contact with tbe Keaa
hala fence running north and south, and soon left it
in ashes to the extent of near half a mile, together
with abont 850 five-year old Pride of India trees,
that shared the same fate. Daring this time, Mr.
Coolidge and all hands were fighting tbe fire below
the east and west fence. Succeeded in putting it
out in that direction after it had destroyed about
twenty-five acres of heavy grass, bat had it got hold
of that fence it would in all probability have made a
olean sweep of all the sugar cane and buildings on
the same ; and through tha most reckless careless
ness of the hands in the employ of ' Mr. John
McKeague. Yours, Veritas.

We were In for It, bout v ivnd t, beyond our
deptti. Following the u.Ju vriib the lamp, we
cautiously swam aln;'. grazing tun rocks on
either side occasionally, t. u til we bad penetrated
to tbe very end. As a bstb. 'twas delightful, the
water having a soft emollient effect upon tbe skin.
The taste was slightly brackb-b. or sulpherous.
(both, may be) and by the light of our fiunt oil
lamp, we could see tbo rocks on tbe bottooi at a
depth of two fathoms. Repeated efforts showed
us that we could not force ourwlves down more
than ten feet below tbe surface. While quietly en
joying floating in this apparently profound depth,
we were hailed by the acbool-master, and looking
up saw bis smiling face looking down on us
through an opening in the rocks. Answering back
bis anxious inquiries after our health, wo found
our way out again, feeling refreshed and satisfied.
Another short rid brought us to Mr. Eldhardt's,
twenty-three miles from Hilo, where we now are.
We passed through "Honolulu" to-day, and
can only give as an excuse for not describing it,
