NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Thanks. Ours are due to Mr. Barry, the gentle
manly Purser of the Wonga Wonga, for files of
late papers and memoranda.
Our space is so fully occupied by Foreign
News, that we are compelled to omit our usual
Letters from Hawaii." They will be coutinued
however in our next issue.
Crowded. Our iteraizer complains that be is
crowded out of his usual space by the accumula
tion of news and other matters. Ia truth, we don't
believe he had much material this week on which
to exercise bis talent.
G7 Lovers of the weed will observe by II. Boll
man n's advertisement in to-day's paper, that the
most fastidious tastes can be accommodated at his
store, in the shape of choice cigars, pipes and to
bacco. J3? The steamer JHout Taylor from San Francis
co, with tne mails, is ruJly due. ine jvebraska,
from Auckland, arrived this morning. The Wonga
Wonga sailed for Sydney at GA this morning.
Life Insurance. We hear of a gentleman of this
city to whom an assignment was recently made by a
resident on another island, of a policy of Insurance
for $2,500, in the Mutual Company of New York
(advertised in this journal). News was received
this week that the insurer has died.

Death op M. C. Monsarkat. Tbongh not unex

tbe death of this resident of over twenty years
standing, was received with universal sorrow by
all classes of our communitv. Mr. Monsarrat en

A Dangerous Nuisance. Our attention bas been
called to the practices of ox team drivers on the road
between town and Waikiki. It has become s common
thing for them to indulge in furious racing on the
borne stretch, to imminent danger of carriages ; and
in the opposite extreme, the driver of a team baa
been found asleep in his cart, while the oxen occupied
tbe whole of the narrow road, so that s carriage fall
of ladies and children had extreme difficulty in avoid

Trim Your Trees. It is particularly annoying of
a dark, rainy night, to have your umbrella (a new
Bilk one, cost $5), ripped and torn, as you go hur

branches from your neighbor's inclosure. Impolite
language is sometimes beard on such occasions. AU

will be recollected, stole two boats and deserted
from that ship last spring, after nearly killing the
first and second officers. 1 be men were in prison
at Tahiti, awaiting requisition by the American
authorities. We learn that one, u not more, oi
these men are native Hawaiians. Is . there no

EIGHT DAYS LATER
The Great Fire in Chicago I
TheC.JbA.S-S. Wonga Wonga, arrive yester
day morning, In 8 days, 224 bonis from Sat- Frart
tisco with dates to the lltb instant. The all-engrossing
v topic is the almost entire destruction by
fire of the City of Chicago, with the loss of aiany
lives, and property estimated at owe hunilral nml
tirtiJy-five millions I This is believed to bave botn
the most destructive fire in the world's history.
Tbe fire commenced on Sunday aight, the 8lh
October, in a small barn on the Canal, not far from
Twelfth street. West side. We quolo Irani tele
graphic dispatches of tbe 101b :
It was just such a little fire as bas happened a
thousand and one times before. The wind at th
time was blowing strongly from the southeast, snd
owing to the extreme dryness of everything of a
combustible nature, this small beginning quiskly
began to spread, and soon reached immense pro
portions. Taking the course of the wind, the fire began to
move rapidly toward the heart of the city, and,
soon reaching the buildings below Twelfth strevt,
tbe flames devoured everything combttstible that
stood or laid in the way, reaching to Van lluren
street bridge. This was seized and quickly became
a prey to the flames, but it served to carry the
fl.inies across tbe river at this point, and tbe carni
val of devastation and other wide-spread ruin be
gan on the South Side of the city, is a short tin
tbe magnificent depot building of the Michigan
Southern aud Rock Island Railway Companies was
in flames, and from this time forward all tbe efforts
of the Fire Department seemed to be unavailing.
The railroads, Eastnd South, ore sending no trslus
out this afternoon, as all the ear remaining in tbe
city over Sunday are consumed. The Incoming
trains are til behind time, owing to fires raging iu
the woods and prairie.
Tbe water aud gas works are both destroyed,
and probably for some time the only supply of the
former will be from tbo lake, and a substitute for
the latter will bave to be employed. All tbe
bridges across the Chicago river, from Van Ituren
street to the lake bave been burned, and the only
means of getting from oue division to the other is
by the tunnels, and the entrances to them are
badly blocked. Tbe newspaper oflices bave all,
or nearly alt, been swept out of exixtencc, and
their material destroyed, and no papers bave been
or will be issued down town to-day, the tun being
tbe only journal which escaped the conflagration.
This morning a largo number of teams were sent
by Messrs. Tucker & Sherman to assist in the re
moval of such furniture as had been saved from the
Sherman House. It was telegraphed for from Mil
waukee at 3 o'clock, aud a number of things were
at once sent forward by express. The banks bave
all been destroyed, excepting tbe First National,
and the upper part of that is gutted. Tbe vaults,
however, are intact. Tbo hotels in that district
from Van Buren street to tbe river and from thu
river to tbe lake are all destroyed, and tbe guests
bave sought refuge in hotels in other purls of tho
Chicago, Oct. 10 3:10 r. v. Word Is just
brought that a fierce fire is rsglng on Thirly-tlrst
street. This street is two miles south of tho
southern fire limit on the South Side, and little less
tban that from the limit 011 the West Side. This
has been set on fire evidently for the purposo of
destroying tbe remaining part of tbe city, largely
occupied by wealthy residents. It is also known
that two men who were caught in that act of firing
buildings have been shot, aud others led off with
ropes around their necks. As tbe wind is blowing
a perfect gale, tbe end cannot now be foretold.
Chicago, Oct 10. This morning, after the ex
citement had somewhat subsided, tbe universal
questions were: What is to be done! Will it
ever be rebuilt? Are tbe Insurance companies
solvent? Will the banks resume payment? The
answers, to far, are unsatisfactory. Then the prin
cipals themselves do not know anything. Tho
Postoffice bas ben temporarily re-established at
Burlington crossing, at State street. Tbe Board of
Trade bave a room on the West Side; and rents
are enormous and provisions fearfully scarce. Tho
Water Works, Gas Works and tbe places of amuse
ment and all tbe newspaper offices of tbe city sre
destroyed. Nine-lentbtof tbe valuation of Chicago
has been swept away in one short day. Two
hundred blocks of the finest portion ot the city are
destroyed. Reports of loss of life are afloat, and
no doubt many have been lost, yet there was not
the least excitement observable during tbe day ;
no pa nio, every one appalled by the aighL It is
said General Sheridan assumed command in tho
exigency yesterday, and stopped the fire by tbo
use of gunpowder. It is certain that powder
stopped the spread of tbe fire on tbe South Side.
Tbe Union National Bank was blown up early
yesterday, witb tbree millions of money in iu
vaults. Many other buildings were blown up, but
it was of no avail. At Harrison street, where tho
flro was stopped, tbe buildings were all blown up
for two blocks wide on the direct path of the
flames. It is impossible to give any idea of tbe
terrible destruction. The Ore is bounded by
Halstod street on tbe West Side, tbe Lake on tbu
east, Harrison and Polk streets on tbe soutb, and
Lincoln Park on. tbe north. Everything witbiit
these limits is destroyed. Seventy vessels were
burned. Tbe sidewalks are full or houseless peo
ple, and was the bed for thousands last night.
tiiiCAUo, uct. y p. M- A great many persons
jumped into the river to escape the flames, only to
urown. Hundreds or animals perished in stables
and streets. It is estimated that 100,000 people
are homeless, a large proportion of whom ate des
titute of everything. Cooked food is in great need.
and all towns tbat can are requested to forward
provisions and clothing for tbe hungry and nearly
naked women and children, as earlv as possible.
Nearly every city and town east of here has re
sponded to this demand, and it is hoped tho West

Four men were caught se Ulnar flro to buildincn
on tbe West Side, and were Immediately bung on
tbe spot by tbe enraged populace this morning.
1 11c total loss 01 property bv this most teriiblo
fire is roughly estimated at one hundred and
twenty-five millions of dollars. Insurance compa
nies will suffer severely, and some may be ruined.
The amount for which tbe San Francisco compa
nies are liable, is stated at about $4,650,000. while
New York and other cities are bcavlly interested.
Relief measures have been promptly taken in all
tbe principal cities of the Union, and large amoiiuts
of money, clothing and stores would be forwarded
for tbe suffers. BankiDg bouses in London, sent
