The ponderous Alia, reminded of tbe existence
of the whaliDg business bj the news of the de
struction of the Bhips in the Arctic, reviews the
discussion of the advantages of San Francieco as
a whaling depot. It thinks that, although the
whaling Captains find advantages in their busi
ness by giving the preference to theee Islands, as
the ship's outfit can here be paid in oil and bone,
while there cash will only be received ; that bills
of exchange are more readily negotiable here ;
that repairs upon vessels are more cheaply effected,
and that towage and harbor dues are cheaper
bere than there ; that fresh recruits are cheaper ;
that the Hawaiian Government allows ships to
trade oil to a large amount without duty, and
that the preference is given to whalers above
merchant vessels in all cases; and that finally,
the facilities for preventing the desertion of crews
are superior in the Islands ; yet, with all this
showing, Bays the Aha, the advantages of San
Francisco as a whaling port, must be apparent.
Strange that tbe whalers should fail to see it in
that light !
While rending the graphic descriptions con
tained in the journals of the day, of the great fires
that have destroyed a large city and overrun
whole districts in the United States, we are led
to think seriously of the bad policy of building
light wooden structures in the midst of this city.
So apparent is the magnitude of the risk incurred
that the Insurance Companies decline to take
risks in some portions of the city at less than five
per cent. a rate that in many instances virtually
bars owners from insuring. We do not expect
that owners of extra-hazardous buildings (with
the exception of straw huts, which indeed, should
be tabooed within certain limits) will tear them
down, in order to avoid their being burned, but
we do think that the 6afety of the whole should
influence those who contemplate building, and
induce them to put up such structures as will not
only add to the architectural beauty of the city
but lessen the risk from fire. As samples of
what should be the prevailing style of building in
the business portion of tbe city, instead of the
exception, we may point to the handsome brick
and concrete building of Mr. C. E. Williams,
now going up on Fort street, and the two fine
fire-proof brick etore1jpntly built by Mr. J. T.
Waterhouse, irelower part of the city.

ashington, D. C, Oct. 28. The process of
tbef seasons has again enabled the husbandman
to garner the fruits of successful toil. Industry
nas been generally well rewarded ; we are at
peace with all nations, and tranquility, with few
exceptions, prevails at home. Within the past
year we have in the main been free from ills
which elsewhere have afflicted our kind. If
some of us have had calamities, these should be
an occasion for sympathy with the sufferers, of
resignation on tbeir part to the will of the Most
High, and of rejoicing to the many who have
been more favored. I therefore recommend that
on Thursday, the 30th day of November next,
the people meet in their respective places of wor
ship, and there make the usual annual acknowl
edgments to Almighty God for the blessings He
has conferred upon them, for their merciful ex
emption from evils, and invoke his protection and
kindness for their less fortunate brethren, whom,
in His wisdom. He has deemed it best to chastise.
In faitli whereof, I have hereunto set my hand,
and caused the seal of the United States to be
affixed. Done at the city of Washington this
twenty-eighth day of October, in the year of our
Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy

The Stobm. One of tbe old-time Kona storms is
now on a visit to the Islands, having commenced to
blow decidedly from south by esst on Wednesday.
Capt. Crane of the Jettie, arrived on that day, re
ported a very heavy swell setting N. E . and an eas
terly current. He saw the steamer, which sailed on
Wednesday, as she was squaring away on her course
to the eastward, making sail before the fresh gale,
while the spray was flying over her fore and aft.

extra quick passage.
Extka Readixo. We furnish our readers with
several extra columns of reading matter this week.
In the supplement will be found a suggestive ac
count of the great Ore, so often prophesied, and
which may yet come in earnest ; and lull telegram
of late foreign news. On tbe fourth page of tbe
regular issue we give the particulars of the massa
cre or missionaries in the boutn heas ; incidents
from Chicago, etc. ; and on the first page, a very
fine " In memoriam " of tbe late Walter Montgom
ery. Compromised. The suit reported last week be
tween a consignor of goods and an auctioneer in re
gard to charges for advertising, notice of appeal in
which to the Supreme Court had been given, has, we
learn, been compromised. The auctioneers, it will
be observed, have informed the public by advertise
ment, that they shall continue the practice in ques
tion, that of charging consignors pro rata for adver
tising, whether or not their goods are received prior
to the issuance of an advertisement. It appears to be
a matter between the merchants and the auctioneers
principally if not entirely, and one in which thepub
lio interest is not particu'arly appreciable.
Blunders. The Gazette is exercised about the
blunders made by San Francisco journals in copy
ing from it tbe account of tbe Arctic disaster. The
greatest blunder made, in our opinion, was in giv
ing tbe Gazette the credit for what was original
with us, in our extra published on tbe morning
tbe news arrived. Perhaps we should not be sur
prised at this, however, seeing that tbe Gazette it
self omitted to credit us with our editorial remarks
which it nsed ; and considering moreover that it
has a special agent to foist it into notoriety in the
person of tbe Hawaiian Consul at San Francisco,
probably acting under orders from the Foreign
A Hioh but Tardy Testimonial. In apprecia
tion of his valuable labors and useful scientinc
studies in botany and conchology, the late Mr.
William Harper Pease, of this city, was a few
months since constituted a member td the Imperial
Royal Zoological and Botanical Society of Vienna.
Tbe diploma was received bere by the Hose
Taylor, some montbs having elapsed since the
death of the gentleman for whom it was issued ,
and is in the bands of Mr. F. A. Scbaefer. It is
however, a source of gratification to the many
friends of the deceased to learn that bis services
rendered to science have not been in vain, but,
knowu and valued abroad, will bear fruit.
A Raft at Sea. The ketch Lunal'do which ar
rived on the 20th from a two montbs cruise among
tbe southern islands, reports that on Sept Mb, in
lat. 10 59m. S., long. 159 3Gm. W.; fell in with
an apparently new-made raft, composed of planks
about 16 feet, with five feet pieces of spar for the
end, securely fastened with spikes. Upon the ratt
was a sort of raised platform, the whole evidently
made with considerable skill and care. There
were no signs of humanity on the raft, tbe ketch
passing quite close to it. We may yet hear of
some vessel lost or missing, or let us hope, tbe
crew saved, which will throw light upon this story
of a raft at sea.
November 28th. Next Tuesday is a National
Hawaiian Holiday, being the anniversary of the
recognition, in 1843, of the Independence of this
Government, by France and Great Britain, through
their representatives, St Aulaireand Lord Aberdeen.
Tbe joint convention signed that day in Paris, recog
nized the existence on these Islands of " a Govern
ment capable of managing its own internal affairs,"
and pledged the faith of both powers that neither
would ever, on any pretense, take possession of any
portion of the territory of the Islands a promise
which was broken by one of the high contract'ng
powers in less than six years afterwards. We hear
that the Rifle Company, under command of Captain
Chas. T. Gulick, will parade on the 28th, and will
have target practice at Kulaokahua, the prizes being
a gold and silver medal. There will also be a luau,
on Punchbowl street, the proceeds of which will be
for the benefit of tbe " Singing Sooiety of Maunakie
kie." The young Hawaiians composing this society
are certainly very sweet singers, and should be
The Calendar. Saturday Nov. 25th, St Cather
ine, tbe patron saint of all the Katya. She was
born at Alexandria, and early in life displayed a
passion for polite literature. On her conversion she
spared no pains in publishing the truths of Chris
tianity, and openly rebuked tbe pagans for their
idolatry. Naturally this gave much offense, and she
was condemned to sutler death by being torn to
pieces by wheels having hooked spikes. Tradition
says that her would-be torturers were disturbed by a
direct interposition from heaven ; and, being foiled
in this, they were content t6 behead her outside the
city. Thursday, Nov. 30th, St Andrews, apostle,
patron saint of Scotland, was first a disciple of Saint
John the Baptist, but appears to have been tbe first
to follow Christ ; for this reason it is supposed that
tbe place of honor has been given to him in tbe An
glican Prayer-Book, where he comes first of those
commemorated. Bat little is known of him, although
he is believed to have suffered martyrdom at Patra,
in Greece, A. d. 70, by being crucified on a cross in
the form of an X.
Direct Interposition op Providence. The Ma
nahikis. as tbe inhabitants of Humphreys' anil
Ryersen's Islnnds are called, claim that Divine
Providence directly interposed to- prevent tbeir
destruction as a people, some ten or fifteen years
ago. Two vessels from the South American coast,
engaged in the kidnapping business, came to
Humphreys' Island, and landing an armed party,
surrounded the defenseless inhabitants, whom they
were about to carry off entirely, men. women and
children, into hopeless slavery. Suddenly a strong
westerly gale spruog up, and both vessels were
dashed in pieces on tbe coral reef. At the end of
a fortnight, another slaver came along and took off
the shipwrecked crews. . Since then the Islands
have been visited only by honest traders, and oc
casionally a whaler touches there. Tbe people are
devoutly religious and strictly moral.
James W. BobOen. Our readers will doubtless
remember the gentleman whose name beads this
item. He succeeded tbe late Hon. D. L. Gregg as
United States Commissioner to these Islands, leav
ing bere for borne via China in 1861. the first year
of the American Rebellion. Among our exchanges
we find a telegram which we copy below, by which
it will be seen that Mr. Borden still continues to
show the same chivalric disposition that animated
bim on one occasion while here, when he drew a
bowie knife on the gentleman who then conducted
this journal. Some others of our readers, who
suffered pecuniarily from the financial transactions
of "the judge," may feel interested in bearing of
his present whereabouts, and learning that he Is

Meeting op the American Board op Foreign
Missions. The session was closed at Salem Mass.,
October 6th. President Hopkins introduced the
missionaries present, who were about to leave for tbe
field of their labors, in touching remarks, to which
several of them responded. Those who return to
missionary work are Rev. U. N. Barnham and wife,
of Harpool mission ; Rev. Luther IL Gulick and
wife, of the Japanese mission ; Rev. Chaunoey Good

Fatal end op a Stowawat. Lost Tuesday eve
ning two native boys of about fifieen or sixteen years
of age, attempted to abscond by stowing away on the
JTevada, bound to New Zealand. They were discov
ered on board after the ship was outside, and placed
by Captain Blcthen in charge of a quarter-maxter,
on deck near the stern, to await the departure of the
pilot-boat, when they were to be pent on shore. J ust
as the boat was getting ready to leave, the boys junip
el overboard, perhaps with the idea of agitiu getting
on board and going on their travels. The boat was
pulled around the steamer and shortly picked up one
of the boys, but the other was never found, and it is
a reasonable supposition that he was devoured by
sharks. The boy who was saved states that on get
ting iuto the water they both swam to the paddle
wheel, holding 011 to which bo taw his companion,
who was an expert swimmer. Finding the hot steam
from the escape pipe rather uncomfortable, one boy
left the wheel anJ was shortly after picked up by the
boat. An hour was spent in looking for the missing
I toy, the paddle boxes being thoroughly searched be
fore the steamer started, but the oulv conclusiou is
that the sharks got hold of him.

day, a native employed on the steamer KiUiw-a was
charged with cruelly to animals some sheep from
Hawaii and the case was postponed until thU

be remarked that our law on tnis subject of
cruelty to animals, is peculiarly iibftiid. It must
be another's animal that is cruelly used to enstiro
anything like punUlitnent ; one may be as heartless
and brutal as lie likes with his own. with but little,

Mb. Editor That there should be an cflort made
to discover the name of the bark that so inhumanly
passed by the wreck of the brig ShUhtff is perfectly
proper ; but that persons should persistently titate
that it was such or such a vessel, when they can by
inquiry settle the matter, is very wrong. I have
heard the blame laid to the North German bark
Hongkong and to the American bark Comet. To
set at rest the matter, eo far ns the Comet is con
cerned, I have obtained from Capt. Fuller the posi
tion of that vessel from the 5th of October to the
10tb,-as follows :
Oct. 6th 1st SAO 43 north; long. ISO 1 1 M,
Oct. Slh btu 86 46 nurllij km. 127 b!' w. t.
Oct. 7th la. 87 U2' nrtli lon. 1:5 W went.
Oct. 8th Int. 8(1 60' nor Hi i long. 124 6' wnt.
Oct. Slh 1st. 89 45' north) long, lit0 !if' went.
Oct. 10th lat. 87 18' north; long. 123 16' west.
Capt. Hopkcn, of the Shelthoff", was disabled July
3d, in lat 10 north and long. 117 west, and res
cued on the 10th of October in lat. 20 40 north
long. 148 52' west, and stated that nine or ten
days before, a bark had passed him by. This would
make the date the bark passed, either October (Hh or
10th, at which time it will be seen that the Comrt
was ten or eleven degrees to the northward and
twenty-four or twenty-five degrees to the eastward.
This should certainly set at rent such a slander up
on the character of Captain Fuller. The reputation
now and heretofore enjoyed by Captain Fuller should
have been sufficient to shield him from the charge.
Doubtless the Captain of the Hong Kong, or some
friend in his behalf, will clear his reputation of such
a charge as must attach, if not clearly disproved.
Cleilii tlies Htrcets.
Mr. Editor : The Board of Health Officer shows
considerable zeal in seeing that the intuit of private
premises are kept in regulation order ; would it not
be as well that some regard should b paid to t)x
outtide also ? Otherwise the scripture might apply
(reversed) that he made cleun the iuuide of the plat
ter, while without was all manner of uncleannesfl,
&c. I refer to the accumulations tf trash and litter
about tbe streets, and I suggest that two or three
prisoners might be usefully employed one or two days
in each week, in sweeping the streets. It would give
tho city a cleaner appearance if nothing more.

Tito Nevada's Jo11Im1oii.
In our last we briefly alluded to tho fact that
the steamship Nevada collided with the bark A. II.
Badger on the passage to Sydney, October 15lh.
In the Sydney Morning Herald, of tho 20th, we
find tho following paragraphs explanatory of the
affair, which however, would bo the subject ol a
judicial investigation, the master of the bark hav
ing laid a claim for the value of bis vessel and
cargo. The steamer reported : , ..
"October 15th, 11:45 p. m., latitude ?A 4' south,
longitude 1C6 4 east; nJgbt dark and hazy; dis
covered a bark close ahead crosning our bow,
showing no light, and panning her before we could
stop, her spanker-boom Just scraping along out
port side. Feeling certain triers was no damage
done on either side, continued on our course. At
daylight discovered that our stern was a little
injured, showing that we must bave etrnck tbe
bark, probably on ber quarter. October l&tb,
saw a bark steering north. Arrived at Sydney.
October 19ih. at 12 m. The Nevada will not pro
ceed on to Melbourne, as she requires some repairs,
but will leave on ber return voyage on the 2Ctb
The following is tbe account as given by the
Captain of tbe bark :
- On the night of the 15th of October, when
within three days sail of Auckland, to wbich port
she was bound, the bark A. II. JJadger sighted a
steamer ahead, steering directly down upon her.
Tbe lights of the bark, according to the Captain's
account, had been well attended to, and were
burning brightly, and tbe helm was put bard a
Eort; but the steamer came right on, itrlklug tho
ark in tbe port mizen-cbaina, carrying away the
main-topmast and all other spars attached, tearing
tbe bolts and mizen-cbannels from the ship's side,
leading a large hole level with the water's edge,
and starting ten planks. Tbe further statement l
that the steamer went right on her way, though
those on board tbe birk called for assistance, as
tbey were In a sinking slate ; but tbe steamer was
never even cased, By means or patching the
principal bole and throwing some of the cargo
overboard, the bark was kept afloat until next day,
when the Alice Cameron hove in sight, and. In
response to a signal of distress, bore down to the
damaged vessel. She was then examined, and
reported upon as unseawortby ; and Captain Carter
agreed to take Captain Leddra and bis crew on to
Sydney. When they left the bark she bad about
five feet water In the hold ; and on that nlgbt a
gale came on, witb a heavy confused ea, which
would bave rendered it improbable that boats
could live If Captain Leddra and his people bad
been obliged to take to them. The steamer, he
says in bis report, bad no mast-head light, nor
could there bave been any look out, for the shout
ing on board my bark could have bren beard, at
the distance of half a mile. But for toe timely
assistance of Captain Carter, we Bbould all have
