at any moment.

The Iolaxi. This old favorite Boston packet
came in on Sunday last, reporting 142 days pas
sage some twenty days more than her usual time.
Her cargo is turning out in excellent order.
AsTROxojtr. Mr. J. G. Wood, who bas re
cently imported a fine large telescope from Eng
land, advertises his Observatory in another col
umn. Of a clear night, our skies are worth exami
nation. Firemen's Funeral. Last Thursday "Mechanic"
No. 2 tire company, and detachments from the other
companies, turned out to attend the funeral of the
late John Sweet man, a member of No. 2. Deceased
was also a Past Worthy Chief Templar of Queen
Emma Lodge of Good Templars, which body marched
in the procession and performed funeral ceremonies
at the grave.
A83A.CLT os Shipboard. On Friday morning the
first officer ot the whaling bark Oak, lyiog in port,
was arraigned in the Police Court on a charge of
assault and battery on one Willis, a member of the
crew. The testimouy was to the effect that with
out any apparent provocation, the mate kicked and
repeatedly struck Willis. There being no evidence
for the defence, the mate. was fined $20 and costs.
Prof. Haselmatkr. By reference to our adver
tising columns, it will be seen that this Professor
of " the black art," as it would have been called a
hundred years ago, or more, gives a matinee at the
Royal Uawaiiau Theatre this afternoon, and a last
performance in the Evening, the latter under the
patronage of His Majesty the King. The bill pre
sented offers unusual attractions, and deserves to
secure a full house.
Hot Weather. Last Thursday was, as every
body concedes, one of the hottest days experienced
in this city for a long lime. According to a gentle
man who keeps a meteorological journal, the
thermometer was higher than on any nryions a7
for a year past, ranging at 90,irthe shade. We
hare beard of some localitiein the city where the
mercury reached 93 rEvea this would be noth
ing remarkable in some countries, when the tber-
raometer in tUesii miner often goes over 100 but
in our tejirperale climate, where the average for the
75 , it is noteworthy.
dame Cora de Lamond. This, the only female
professor of magic, gave another of her pleasing
and wonderful performances at Bu Bum's Hall last
evening for the Benefit of the Queen's Hospital, un
der the patronage ot Her Majeiy u ,
who iu common with a large audience was evident
ly equally delighted and amazed at the many and
skillful " tricks of legerdemain " presented. The
most beautiful and effective piece of all, however,
is " the couch of the angels," which never fails to
make a deep impression on tbe beholder. The
benefit netted about 100 dollars for the Hospital.
Madame Cora gives a matinee this alternoun aDd a
performance in the evening.
During tbe performance last evening, among
other pleasing products of tbe " mysterious bo
quet," wss a very pretty present to Her Majesty
Queen Emma, of a silver wreath, appropriately en
graved. Tbe Queen sent an acknowledment of her
thanks to the fair magician, and further accepted
tbe gift by placing it in her hair.
Opera Next Week. The public will be pleased
to learn that Signor Orlandini having fully recov
ered from tbe illness which bas prevented bis ap
pearing on tbe stage, the Theater will open on
Thursday evening next, when Madame States'
troupe will present selections Irom the popular
opera'of Lucia of Lammermoor. The full audience
which greeted with unbounded applause tbe first
appearance of the troupe in opera on Saturday
night, is a guarantee that they will meet with like
success in the future, and that in our community,
isolated as it is from all tbe rest of mankind, true
musical talent is recognized and appreciated.
The Esplanade. A walk at early morning down
on the Esplanade now-a-days will convince anyone
that with this city, Empire is marching on, but to tbe
Eastward rather than to westward. The dredge is
daily at its patient work, bringing up the mud and
sand of the bottom, to be dumped again to make
new land. Dry land bas appeared ou the mauka
side of the steamer wharf, aud ere long there will
be at that point extensive yard room for coals.
Tbe rubbish from town is by the new regulation of
the Board of Health, required to be thrown ioto
the shoal water at the edge of the Esplanade, and
is fast doing its work ot tilling np. Tbe sight of a
set of hoops a cast-off article ot feminine apparel
among broken glass, straw, and other rubbish,
set our itemizer into a brown study, tbe result of
wbich was that be spoiled a whole quire of paper
with incoherent flights of imagination about tbe
dear creatnre whose lovely form was once enclosed
in those circling wires, winding up with the sup
posed cogitations of some well-digger in the year
1900, who unearths this relic of 1871, and falls to
wondering as to what possible use it was put to.

from our traveling corresposdekt.
September 3d, 1871.
Atler examining the school near his boose, and another bat a
very short distance on, we wound alowlv down the hill, leav
ing behind us the luxuriant vegetation that characterises this
part of Kona, and struck tbe beach again at - Keauhoo," one
of a series of pic tare; que little bays that indent this ooaat.
Here we made our preparations for speading tbe Sabbath, and
were right hospitably received at Judge lloapili's H is neat
little frame house stands near tbe beach, and from tbe
"laosi" we have a pretty view of a pretty place. The little
bay with rough rocky shores ia dotted with hats, sod a fine
group of coco-nut trees overshadow the cluster of dwellings
that lie at its head. The people seem to be very well content
to go on living now that they are once fairly started on tbe
road, and without being particularly "well oftY even fro-n
their stand-point, do not rr- bublr suffer want. Tbe Puna
district, so far, seems to be as primitive as any on the island.
ana mere, as wen as ner-, tne people aeetn to be able Io n-e to
a certain degree of civilization, without much of aa effort.
Beyond that point, the majority do not with to go. And if
they do, in nioat cases it is through sn ambitions desire to plsy
the " haole." and with a few notable exceptions they succeed
in doing so. so far as to copy his vices and weaknesses. We
have met some of these u mummers," and were forcibly re
minded or the snort and pithy saying of Shakespeare, "Man
clothed in a little brief authority." Ac. These brief seasons
of rest that are wsandwiched " in between oar weeklv trios.
are very necessary to the comfort and enjoyment of lb Jour
ney, to say nothing of their value from a moral point of view.
To be sure, they are generally passed, awsy from the sound of
the -cnurcn going bell," 11 not out or sight of lbs building
Itself. Hat then we have unlimited facilities for res, and we
thoroughly enjoy the unwonted stillness that bangs ever every
thing. The only sound, foreign to our own movements, that
we have heard to-day. has been the asthmatic d em i -crow of an
aged rooster thst pervsdes the enclosure in wbich our bouse
stands, fcven his half-strangled efforts to wake tbe echoes,
fail to attract attention, save such ball wondering, wholly in
dolent aurniises aa to what can induce him to take so much
psins to accomplish so little, aa are not Inconsistent with our
dole e far nitmte enjoyment of the day. Those among the
people who "go to church " do so on horseback, disappearing
oTrr the hills in tbe direction from whence we came yesterday.
Why they do not stay at home, or get together in the school
house here, is one of those conundrums that we ugive up" on
principle. Speaking of conundrums reminds ine that we have
elaborated some of tbe finest and funniest things lu this Una
wlille j igglng on our wsy, thst ever occurred to the mind ot
man. Tbe S. M. is particularly brilliant in this line, and Y. C.
hopes at some future day to electrify your readers by display
ing these brilliant gems of eccentric thought. The examina
tion of the scholars that we meet with each day, keeps the
8. M. on the qui vive, and so strong has the hsbit of asking
questions grown with him, that ho is constantly baring V. V.
with some of his confounded stumpers" with which he
H floors" his little victims. How would you like It yourself
alter doing justice to your usual dinner, to be asked such a
question as thist If two men traveling around one Island
eat two chickens at one meal, and have three meals each day
for twenty-five days, bow many chickens will three men,
traveling ar und two islands, eat in twenty-five days, suppos
ing they eat four meals each day I " Or this : - If one roast
squid, one boiled chicken, one gallon of pol, one bottle of
pickles, two cupa of coffee, three alicca of bread, one diah ol
kalo, one handful of salt, one quorter box sardines, and one
large watermelon, is all that one mau wants for oue meal one
day, how many meals can he eat tbe next Jn
How would you like, I repeat, Mr. Editor, to have about a
dosen of such questions put to you, while filling your pout
prandial pipe, by a fiend in human form, stretched out on tbe
only available easy seal, under the solitary bit of shade with
in reach, with his bat over bis eyes, putting on airs because
he knows you can't answer him "off hand 1 "
Monday morning, at an early hour we set out, and between
here and Kailua, (five miles) we v. sit no leas than Jive schools.
Why there is such a number nobody knows. They are small
in number, and tbe lowest in point of standing that we have
come across yet. It seems to me that one half the number,
with good teachers, would be of more benefit than tbe quarter
score now iu existence.
" Existence," 1 say, but it Is thst sort of existence that we
notice in the galvanized corpse. As soon as the operator
ceases to apply his wires, in other words as soon as the S. M.
leaves them, they relrpae into their former lifeless condition,
and nothing will do but to "born" ihem over again. The

The rain commenced to fall, and we concluded to wait

embodied in Mr. Smith, his agent at this place, we were as
sured of a comfortable night's lodging, and in spite of Ihe rain,
sallied forth alter dinner to pay our respects to Her Highness
the Governess of Hawaii, who i here for a short visit. We
found Her Excellency at home, and sienl a pleaaant quarter

crop in this region as they have done elsewhere, and the con
sequent privations, that the people who have made Die growth
of the berry their main stay, will feel, were apoken of, and the
question sa to whether a substitute could be found was dis
cussed. That the Governess lias the welfare of her people
much at heart is evident, and she listened with interest to Hie

then, after taking a slight sketch of the old buildings we re
turned in time to admire the fine view of tbe mountain range
Whose summit range was lit by the rays of ihe sun that to as
had dipped beneath the watery horizon. Upon Ihe bill side, we
see the rambling old nest of buildings known as tbe "Mission,"

Were struggling for life, with dense growth of goava, wild
cantor-bean, and every variety of weed that ia iroduced on
this side of the island. Before seeing the choked aud neglected
condition of these once flourishing plantations, we hal tbe Im
pression that the comparative failure of the coffee crop was
clue to the presence of ants and blight, and that the pests
were unavoidable. Now that we have examined the fields, and
seen the terribly neglected condition of the trees, our only
wonder is, thst m Just Providence has not visited the people
who pretend to care for this crop, wiib a more signal expres
sion of displeasure. With every advantage that a favorable
climate, right kind of soil, sod beautiful location affords foe
cultivating, picking, drying and shipping thft crop, tbe trees
once planted are allowed Io struggle on with sliding weeds,
and entangling I rake of wild goava, and then wliea tne tender
bright leases sicken and droop, and the plant, devoting all its
strength to ths task of keeping alive, ceases to bear fruit, and
becomes a harbor for insects, and a resting place for blight,
the lazy shiftless owner, cooly aitribulrs to a natural cause,
the efl'ects of bis own indolence. After riding for ten miles
with coffee trees growing on either hand, we can recall but one
piece of ground that was kept in decent order. And here, the
trees were straight, and bright leaved, their branches loaded
with bright red berries, snd the whole plantation repaying its
owner sbuoduntly for the care taken with if. lu thrifty,
beautiful appearance recalled the fine plantations on ihe side hill
near Matauzae, Cubs, and we all know that tbe quality of (be
berry grown cq this island with anything like decent care, is
quite as fine as anything produced in Ihe West Indian Isles.
Another fruitful cause of neglect is, that asjenU visit thesu
plantations, and bay anything in the shape of coffee that is
offered them. Tbe natives are very quick to find out some
way ol cheating, ard take advantage of Ibis lax made of deal
ing ; one favorite plan being to dampen tbe centre of a-bag of ,
coffee berries, and when the party inspecting tbe lot looks in,
he finds a very fslr sample on top. and before be can look

Is mixed, or allowed to remain whenever the grower can get a
chance to pass bis goods without much regard to its quality,
and as a natural consequence, much ol ihe coffee sent from
here is branded of a very luw grade, and tne wnole crop latis
into disrepute. There was sent from this diatrirt last year
about 140,000 pounds, and throngh mismanagement
and neglect, tbe crop this season will be much less. Tbe

London, Sept. 18. A correspondent of the Lon

says : Great and unexpected was tbe consterna
tion of the Clericals and satisfaction of the Liber
als, when, two days ago, tbe letter of the Minister
of Public Worship to tbe Archbishop of Munich ap
peared, dated 27th of August, which throws down
tbe gauntlet to the Clerical party, or rather takes
up that thrown down by them.
Tbis letter is a long aud elaborate refutation of
the arguments put forward by the Bishop ol Ba
varia to justify their proceedings against Dr. Dol
linger and others, who would not submit and recog
nize the dogma of Infallibility. It declares the
dogma to be an Innovation, "", ' '
to the Interests of tbe State. It upholds the Royal
displeaHtire oFthe Episco
pate by their resistance to the new dogma.
The Bavarian Government upholds tbe principal
that Bavarian Archbishops and Bishops are subject
like every one else to tbe laws of the kingdom. The
danger threatening tbe Constitution and the viola
tion by' tbe Bishops of the laws of the kingdom,
forces tbe Government to measures which it would
have liked to avoid. It will refuse its assistance to
tbe propagation of tbe new doctrine, and carrying
out those provisions wbich may be made in conse
quence of tbe new doctrine. It will bold fast to
tbe principals that tbe decisions which tbe Church
authorities might take with regard to those who do
not recognize tbe new dogma can have no edect in
civil and political matters, and, if necessary, it will
take measures to insure the Independence of the
members of the Church against clerical pressure.

The Patriae states upon information received
from St. Petersburg that the Russian Government
bas of late evinced tbe greatest anxiety to complete
tbe reorganization of the army and the conversion

mitrailleuses and projectiles bavo been given in
England, America and Belgium. Some orders
bave also been given to manufactories in the
French Departments, but in all caes stipulation
bas been made- for speedy delivery. Moreover,
work is earried on day and night in the arsenals
and dockyards in St. Petersburg, Cronstadl and
NicolaU. The Emperor makes frequent visits lo
the camp at Taarskoe-Selo, and ou one of these
visits be was accompanied by General Leflo, the
French Ambassador. The same parser mentions a
rumor that Prince Bismarck contemplates the with,
drawul from France of the entire occupying force,
and observes that its satisfaction at such a pro
reeding is qualiied by tbe belief that it proceeds
from a desire to prepare for renewed warfare.
Tbe cadres of regiments are being filled up, arms
are being perfected or transformed, and stores are
being provided to an unexampled extent. These
preparations, however, tbe Pulrioj believes, are in
no way directed against France, but are intended
to inflict upon Russia a similar humiliation to that
which France bas been recently subjected to.
Among other reasons for attacking Russia, Prince
Bismarck is credited with a desire to check tbe
socialistic movement amoog tbe working claaaes of
Germany ; and with that view, as well as tor tbe
satisfaction of a national desire to attain European
supremacy, tbe Paris journalist expects) tbat Prus
sia's preparations for assailing Russia will be
completed within tbe space of a few mouths.
