CARD TO THE PUBLIC.
OFFICE PACIFIC INSURANCE COM
PANY, Oct. 10, 1871. The recent conflagration at Chi
cago la a national calamity, onequaled in extent by any other
known in the world. The losses are rery heary, and their ex
tent no human foresight eould hare anticipated, nor possibly
circumscribed. The losses to all Insurance Companies doing
a general business are large ; and while this Company suffers
with all the others, we wish to assure the public and our
policy-holders that our resources are sufficient to meet every
liability and that all contracts and obligations will be properly
and reguUrly adjusted and paid, and this Company will con
tinue its business. While we are without positive information
as to our exact losses, yet from the records at our office we
ascertain that our risks on sll the streets that penetrate the
burnt district, extending to the extremes thereof, are $1,677,
000. Of course there must be deductions from this amount
for the risks on the above streets beyond the reach of the fire.
We are certain that the rumors now afloat respecting losses
are greatly exaggerated.
As soon as more exact information la received it will be
promptly given to the public.

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Tue Steamers, both from the East and the South,
will be due here next Saturday.
Apropos of the times. Read the poetry on the
first page, from the leading commercial journal of
New York. .
Naval. The U. S. steam frigate, the California,
which it is rumored will be likely to visit Honolulu
shortly, arrived at San Francisco, October 17th,
from Mare Island Navy Yard.
The Rev. Mr. Damon will preach at the
to-morrow mornine, by request, a sermon
suggested by the late calamitous fires in the United
Circuit Court, 8d Judicial District. His Hon
or, A. S. Hartwell and L. McCully, Esq., Deputy
Attorney General, sailed for Hawaii on Monday last,
to attend the term at Waimea.
A Fine Picture. At Thrum's stationery store
may be seen a very fine painting of scenery near
Hilo, being a view of T. Spencer's Plantation, with
the mill and buildings, and Mauna Kea in the back
ground. It is by Mr. Bailey, of Wailuku.
That Wonderful Vial. Gammon, reading of
the great fires at Chicago and on the plains of
Wisconsin, suggests that the man who got Sum
merield's vial of destructive compounds, has been
spilling some of it in that direction.
Fobeiqn BrBDS. While passing through Richard
street the other morning, we were attracted by the
sweet songs of a couple of beautiful birds in the
yard of the Deputy Collector of this port. Upon
inquiry we ascertained that they were Orioles, that
had been received by the last Bteamer from the States.
Ice Cream Festival. There will be a festival
held at Bu Hum's Hall, soon after the departure of
the next steamer, for the benefit of the Bethel Chapel.
Any person in the community desiring to assist by
contribution or otherwise will please communicate
with Mrs. S. C. Damon, or Mrs. H. M. Whitnev.
The Kilauea, on her next trip to Hilo, will
make the circuit of the island of Hawaii, affording a
fine opportunity to tourists. She leaves on Monday
next, especially to accommodate the owners of the
Kaupakuea plantation, and will return in time for
her trip of the 27th inst, around Hawaii.
Public Accommodation. Residents on the other
islands are indebted to the courtesy of Mr. S. G.
Wilder, for detaining the Kiluuta on Monday even
ing last, to obtain the foreign mail by the Comet.
We are pleased to learn that under the agency of Mr.
Wilder the steamer is doing a very good business,
considering the present dull times.
The Raint Season Commenced. The weather has
been vacillating between clouds and sunshine for ten
days past, but on Thursday, between midnight and
morning, the windows of heaven were opened, and
for an hour it rained in good earnest. The rain
gauge on the Eastern side of the city showed a fall of
New Goods for the Season. We advise our
readers to look in at Whitney's Book Store, where
he is opening a large stock of novelties and desir
able articles in his line, from a toy locomotive, up
to initial note paper of beautiful styles, and un
rivaled gold pens. These goods are of Mr. W's.
own selection in the East.
Opthalmia. We learn that there are quite a
number of cases of disease of the eyes in town,
particularly among the natives, and that Dr.
Dudley the oculist has many under treatment.
One ease that we have heard of, was that of a
native woman, whose eyes bad been affected only
for six days, when on examination she was found
to have become totally blind.
Prizes for a Regatta. At Rawaon's watch
maker's shop may be seen two very handsomely
chased pure silver goblets, valued respectively at
$40 and $60, imported by Mr. Christian Eckart,
the jeweler, which will be offered by the Honolulu
Yacht Club as prizes at the next regatta. This is
to come off on the 11th of next month, a public
holiday, being the anniversary of His Majesty's
birth. Particulars of the regatta will be made
Coasters Lost. The schooner Mary, belonging
to Messrs. Foster, went ashore from the heavy
swell in a calm, near Moloaa, Kauai, on the morn
ing of the 2d inst, and soon broke up. The Mary
was a fine staunch vessel, and was insured for
something less than her value. The sloop Wailele,
belonging to Dowsett &, Co., went ashore at Koolau,
. . . i i 1 1 . aA 1 1 FFM.
on tne cm instant, ana win d a wjiai tons. m
schooner Rob Roy, belonging to the Bame owners,
at the same place, escaped with the loss of her,
The Opera. The opera of Don Pasquale was pre
sented by Madame States and her troupe on Jast
Monday evening to a very full bouse. The singing
and acting was very good, and the interest folly sus
tained throughout the evening. Signor Giorza exe
cuted a series of brilliant variations upon the piano
forte, and the entrance of His Majesty the King,
with Queen Emma, and their suites, was accom
panied by the playing of the National Anthem by
- . - an tw a
the Band of the Household Troops. Ao-njgni, Dy
special command of His Majesty, the opera of the
Barber of Seville will be repeated. We have been
requested to state that this will be potitively the last
opera nighL .
... . 1 1
Reprehensible. By a puono notice irom me
American Consul, it appears that some of the desti
tute seamen who hare been furnished with necessary
. m . -1
clothing by the Consulate, at tne expense oi tne
American Government, have been eelling the same
about town. It is not at all surprising that sailors
ashore without money, should be like fish out of water,
and not stand upon the means of " raising the wind."
It is none the less reprehensible howerer for them to
divert the noble charity of their government to the
means of dissipation, and those who buy clothing un
der such circumstances are equally if not more cul
pable. The natives, through the police, have been
pretty generaDy warned against purchasing articles
from seamen hereafter.
At the Station House. A remarkably obfusca
ted individual was brought one evening this week
before our friend McDnff. and after being propped
up to the desk, the following conversation occurred,
(reported specially for us by Bunsby, who was one
of the recent Arctic explorers.)
" What are you doing here ?" " My fren hie
I dunno." " Aint you drunk I" " Drunk 1 Nosher,
never wash drunk hic la my life. I was shimply
sbtroirg down bo hit; both abides 'e shtreet, an'
ais genlman (pointing with wavering finger at the

No little alarm has been felt in Europe at the
existence of a 6ccret organization throughout the
principal cities, known as the International Soci
ety. The burning of Parts or at least so large
a portion of it an was accomplished is attribu
ted to this society's emissaries. Its object is de
clared to be to make capital subservient to labor
the old war cry is the motto4' down with the
rich, up with the poor laborer." Its ramifica
tions are 6aid to extend to the United States, and
there are not wanting those who ascribe the re
cent great fires which have attracted the attention
of the world, to the incendiary agents of the In
ternationals. A San Francisco paper of the 14th
uit., has the following paragraph, which has tlie
tone of a sensational item :
On Saturday afternoon last, in the presence an! In the hear
ing of our reporter, a man (ahove adlres was by him iuaianl
ly handed over to the police) made the following astounding
statement: There is a fociety in existence called the 'In
ternational Society,' of which I am a member. Our ohjrcl is
to make capital subservient lo labor. We Intend to do this by
the only means in our power, via.: by touch li g the porkrls of
the capitalists. The fire at UarIen ling's Block waa caused ly
this Society i so were the Ores at Virginia City and Pi-clit.
You will yet bear of more tires all ov r the Union, an I we have
not finished with Sun Francisco." This language aas used in
the presence of wiloeases whose Integrity and character are
above question. Their names are also in the hands of the po
lice. From IIllo-LosH of llto Hcliooner
The steamer Kilauta arrived yesterday morning
from windward ports, having been unable to effect a
landing on Maui, except at Maliko. From Hilo we
have intelligence of the loss of another of our coast
ing fleet, the fine schooner Kate Let. owned by the
Messrs. Foster and others. We are permitted to
copy the following extract from a letter from L.
Severance, Esq., Sheriff of Hawaii :
" I have to report the total loss of the schooner
Kale Let on Kalaoa Point, (about one mile this side
of Ouomea) on Thursday afternoon, the 2nd inst., at
8 o'clock. She bad got under weigh from Onomea,
where she had discharged her freight, and was going
over to Kaupakuea. She got under weigh with the
Seabreeze, which is very unreliable, and abreast this
point it failed her entirely, and the swell set her on
the rocks. I went out immediately with a
police force, and with the assistance of natives and
others we succeeded in saving her sails, most all the
cabin furniture, ropes, spars, blocks, chains, etc.,
and got some of the Kaupakuea freight ashore. She
commenced breaking up in the night, and by Friday
she was about all gone. By order of the
Lieut. Governor, and at the written request of Copt.
West, I have taken charge of the wreck and have
sold it at auction this noon, (Saturday) to Thos.
Spencer, the highest bidder, for $60. I have taken
charge of the articles saved for the present, valued at
8700 or $800."
The following is from our regular Hilo correspon
dent. The loss to the Kaupakuea plantation by this
disaster, will probably amount to quite $3000. The
agents, Messrs. Afong & Achuck, with characteris
tic energy, made an order for new kettles, &c, im
mediately on receiving the news of their loss.
Kaupakuea, November 6, 1871.
Not a fragment of the unfortunate Kate Lee now
remains to mark: tne scene or tier disaster, some
valuable train kettles lie on the rocks, one broken
and two sound as yet, but in about as available
position as when the iron of which they are made re
mained in the mine. Two new clarifiers of the most
approved sort slid from the hold when the schooner's
back broke in two, and now lie in deep water with,
scarcely a chance for recovery. This misfortune is a
heavy blow and a great discouragement to the Kau
pakuea plantation, where energy and mechanical
skill and unfaltering enterprise have latterly been
displayed as never before on the same estate. Works
and workmen were both awaiting the arrival of the
schooner, that no lapse might occur in the progress
of the improvements which it was confidently hoped
would be complete on the 1st of January in readiness
for crop time. The fields are in fine condition, all
showing that deep dark green which betokens care
ful culture and the cleanliness which is next to god
liness, whilst 800 acres of new cane, planted since
June, present a picture unequaled elsewhere in the
Hilo district, or any where else. One cannot look
over this plantation and not desire for it and its
owners all the success it seems to deserve. Travelers
as they pass to and fro see prosperity " written
over the fair fields, and possibly deem plantation life
a happy one. They do not feel the shocks of hurri
canes and fires and floods, hospital patients, run
aways, unfaithful lunas, scabby sheep, shipwrecks,
worms and what not, which drive pious managers
crazy or, evaporating through the tongue and bair,
turns them to gray headed sinners.
Ma. Editor : This quiet island has been lately
the scene of a little excitement, and is trying to
have its share in the carnival of disaster and crime
now pervading the world.
In March, 1870, a native, L W. Palau, residing on
Paomai, west end of the island, was suddenly miss
ing. Some said he had perished whilst fishing and
waa not much sought for. After a while there were
rumors of foul play, and suspicion attached to a cer
tain family, the near neighbors of the lost oue. On
the 3d October last, the remains of 1. w. l'alau were
found in a small cave, or hole, in a rocky ravine,
near his late abode, and were immediately recognized
by the clothing and other objects known to have be
longed to Palau. It was plain to be seen that he
had been done to death maliciously. Several bones
were broken after the fashion of ancient Hawaiian
bone-breakers, and heavy stones lay upon the bones
in the cave.
An inquest was held upon the spot where the bones
were found, Justice Sulomona Keboohalahala acting
as coroner, and after a careful investigation and ex
amination of witnesses during three days, the jury
unanimously agreed upon a verdict that 1. VY. l'alau
had come to his deata by blows from some heavy in
strument in the hands of some person unknown to
the jury. But the suspicion of every native on the
island fastens on certain parties, a father and son.
The wife of Palau and another witness confessed
that tbey, with these suspected parties, were par
ticipants in a large theft of sheep from a foreigner,
Mr. Gibson. They stole several hundreds, burying
numbers which were branded, and which tbey could
not dispose of. Palau was acquainted with the tbeft
and threatened exposure. He was a stranger on the
island, reputed to be a steady ebureb-goer and
honest man, and was aggrieved at the villainies of
many of the islanders.
This is the fourth death on this island in seven
years, accompanied with suspicions of foul play. A
jury, a few years ago, decided that a woman, Ma-
haoe, bad been stabbed to death, come reward
ought to be offered by the Government in order to
induce the natives to testify. There are many, no
doubt, who know the guilty parties.

Honolulu is noted for its charities ; its liberality is
unbounded, and in the subscription for the relief of
the sufferers by the recent fires in America a new
instance is given. But we may well question the
propriety of canvassing this city at this time to raise
funds for a purpose so foreign. The sentiment that
actuated the prime movers in this matter is noble ;
but discretion and prudence would lead one to con
sider our present depressed condition, and present
the proverb at the head of this item with renewed
The action taken by the Chamber of Commerce in
regard, to the fund for the sufferers by the late
fires in the western portion of the United States
while laudable in itself and to be commended for its
disinterestedness, comes before the public at an un
fortcnate time. The people of Honolulu and the
Islands generally have always expressed their sympa
thy for the unfortanate and suffering everywhere by
timely and generous responses to calls made upon
them for relief and assistance ; and it is with some
reluctance that our community will have to confess
their inability to meet this latest call with a generos
ity consonant with their heartfelt sympathy.
Lwportaxt Announcement. The PacLIc Mail
Steamship Company, in a circular issued from the
New York office under date of October 2d, and
signed by Allen McLane, President, states that tbey
will begin a aetni-montbly trans-Pacific line be
tween San Francisco, Japan and China, on the 15tb
May, 1872. with regular departures thereafter from
San Francisco, on the 1st and 15th of every month,
except when anch datfsfall en Sunday, when the
departures will take place on the Saturday preced
ing. The statement is also made that the Company
will be prepared to supply additional tonnage,
should the trade require it.
This announcement will be very gratifying to
the mercantile community, and to all who are anx
ious for the revival of American commerce. The
fact that our trade with China and Japan has so
much increased as to warrant semi-monthly steam
trips, attest tbe wisdom of the Government subsi
dies, by which alone an American was enabled to
enter tbe field originally and keep it in the face of
much discouragement at the outset of a costly en
terprise 8. Jr. Bulletin 17th Oct.

OWE WEEK LATER !
By the arrival of the favorite bark Cuintl. Capt.
A. Fuller, of the Regular Dinpatcb Line on Mon
day last, we are in receipt of San Francisco dailies
to October 18, and telegrams from the East of tho
The papers are filled with the distressing partic
ulars of the great Chicago fire, the money Ioks of
which is now estimated at $150,000,000, and or the
terrible march of the fire-king over the prairies
and through the pine woods of Wisconsin. By Hid
latter visitation, some hundreds of lives are V.iown
to have been lout and a great deal of distress pre
vailed over a large extent of territory. The con
tributions of tbe charitable throng Lout the Stalcrf,
and from many parts of England, was flowing in
for the relief of tbe sufferers of the Chicngo and
Wisconsin Ores, and tbe amount already forwurded
exceeds five millions of dollars.

Cuicauo, Oct. 13. Gen. Sheridan has entire con
trol of tbe city and reporis everything quiet, and
no attempts at incendiurism. Tbe loan ol life can
not be yet known, but is more than whs estimated,
probably over 100.
A great number of persons are still searching
for wii-sing members of families, but lhero art)
many of these m Using ones quartered at the head
quarters at tbe church on Washington atreet, where
are constantly occurring instances of a inoHt af
fecting natute. A Swedish mother found her lbre
little children there safe, and newly clothed. At
first sight she fainted away, then recovered and em
braced her children with fervor. Last evening a
German father, who was able to speak only a few
word of broken English, was conducted to a room
where he found his four children. 1I danced for
joy, and lifting up very tenderly tbe youngest In
fant he kissed it ugain and again, and said, " komt
und bonce to mutter." then seeing it waa w nulled
and wrupt In a nice blanket he commenced remov
ing it. but tbe Superintendent told him ho could
keep it. This generosity was more than he could
understand, and he insisted upon returning tho
wrappers. Similar scenes are of hourly occurrence,
but alas, many have searched and will search in
vain for their missing loved ones.
Cuicauo, Oct. 14. The eighty dead bodies al
ready lying in ghastly rows lu the Morgue, the two
long columns of names of tbe missing in this morn
ing's papers, the churches and school bouse
crowded tilitl with half-clothed, weeping women
and children are tbe terrible reminders of the great
calamity whose whole horror no words will ever bo
found to describe. Tbe bodies in tbe Morgue were
mostly found on the north side, and it is but too
certain that they were only a small portion of the
number who were caught in the raging sea of
flames and utterly consumed.
Chicago, Oct. 14. The vault of the Custom
House was opened to-day. It contained on mil
lion dollars in gold and two millions in greenbacks.
Tbe gold was melted into an almost solid mass, and
of course is safe in the shape of bullion. Tb
greenbacks were entirely consumed beyond recog
nition ; or course the greenbacks belonged to tlio
Government and no Ions is incurred.
The Fire Fiend has been creating terrible havoo
with life and property in all parts of tbe country.
Next to Chicago tbe country around Green Bay,
Wisconsin, has suffered most by tbe late epidemic
of fire. A few days since a fire broke out in tho
northeastern portion of Wisconsin, and swept
through tbe heavy pine forests, leaving thousands
of acres a barren waste, burning village, farm
houses, and in fact everything in its course. So
rapid was the progress of the flames, driven on by
a heavy wind, tbat many of tbe inhabitants wero
overtaken by them and consumed. Most of those
who made their escape were unable to save any of
their property, and they are now without shelter
and in need of food and clothing. A late despatch
informs us that there has been a fearful loss of life.
At the little town of Pesbtigo, one hundred and
fifty men who bad taken refuge in a large barn,
were surrounded by the flames and perished.
Green Bay has also fallen a prey to tbe fire fiend,
one hundred and eighty buildings being consumed,
leaviog only five bouses in that once flourishing
town. A considerable number of tho inhabitants
were burned to death, and those who survived arc
destitute and in need of tbe necessaries of life.
Chicago, Oct 17. Confidence is restored. At
none of the various National Banks was there
anything like a run, but on tbe contrary, in many
instances,, more money was deposited than waa
drawn out Tbe Third National for instance paid
out Borne $15,000, and received on deposit $72,000.
Tbe beneficial effects of confidence thus exhibited
in the banks by the people, cannot be overesti
mated, and spite of tbe miles of blackened and
still smoking ruins lying spread out before them,
the people to-night are feeling almost jubilant.
Many contracts for rebuilding in the burnt dis
trict on tbe south side have been signed to-day,
including an entire block on the east side of Clark,
between Randolph and Washington streets, Drake's
block, and many other first-class buildinga.
