NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Thb Kjlauea leaves for Maul and Kona. Hawaii,
on Tuesday next. .
Steam KR3 Nkxt Weer. The Moses Taylor from
San Francisco, and the Xebraska from New Zea
land, will both be due the latter part of next week.
Natal. The U. S. S. S. Pensacola, from San
Francisco, was reported as to leave for this port
on the 23d tilt, and is therefore full; due.
The Good Templars' Ball. Don't forget the
assembly on Monday eveniag at Bufium's ILtll.
We anticipate a brilliant und well conducted re
union. Ice Cart. We notice in our morning walks, that
the ice-cart has become an institution. The quality
of ice furnished by the establishment on the Espla
nade is purer and is said to last longer than the
New Schookers. The new 80 ton schooner built
by Tibbetta & Sorenson will be ready to launch by
the next high tides. We learn that the Messrs.
Foster, are intending soon to lay the keel of a schooner
of about 140 tons.
Very Trie. An exchange well remarks that
one may insert a thousand excellent things in a
newspaper and never bear a word of them from its
readers. But let a line or two not suited to their
taste creep in, by accident or otherwise, and one
hears of it from every quarter.
Japanese Oranges. A cariosity may be observed
on the premises of a gentleman on Fort street, being
a miniature orange trefe, about three feet high, grow-
ing in a tub, which has on it about a dozen large
golden fruit. It is one of a lot of plants bright
from Japan about a year ago.
Commendable Industry. We found a native to
day who offered to do a short errand for a dime !
Such a correct appreciation of the true value of
small coin should be met by such a demand for the
employment of the individual, as light porter, as
would call into the field a crowd of competitors.
A Purveyor Wanted. Since the death of the
late incumbent at the Queen's lIoppitaH the Trus
tees have advertised for a proper person to fill the
position. It is safe to-say that they will be ex
tremely fortunate if a person .is found so well Gtted
in all respects as was the late Mr. Desha.
E" The following notification Is posted at the
door of the Court, House :
' BY ORDER OF THE COURT.
" All cases in Banco, and those in which a jury
is waived, will be argued the first week- of the
Term commencing on Tuesday, the 2nd day of
January. A." D. 1872. Walter It. Seai
X Clerk's office, 7th Dec. 1871. Clerk.'
. ' Whebe is Squiggles, now-a-days ? Don't see him
around as usual," inquired one gentleman of another
a day or two since. Oh, Squiggles T he's on the
road to the Lunatio Asylum,, was the rejly.
" Indeed ! Well, I always (bought he was queer
not altogether sound, you know.' No ; I don't
mean that. He's gone out on that road to lire."
Entertainment in Prospect. We note the arri
val from Oregon this week, of Mr. Geo. Pauncefort,
who comes very highly recommended through notices
which have appeared from time to time in the jour
nals of the Pacific coast, as an actor, elocutionist,
humorist, and a delineator especially of the charac

less than a year ago, was mentioned in very flattering-terms
by the press of that city, since when he

Death of I. R. Moftitt Stonet. This well known
and highly respected resident of twenty years stand
ing, died somewhat suddenly of aneurism, ia this
city, on Thursday last He arrived here early in
1851, and until recently was known by the name of
Moffitt, which he changed, for that of Stoney (by
Royal permission) for family reasons. He may justly
be considered as the pioneer of an improved system
of grazing, his stock farm at Kahuku being anodel
in that respect. The old and barbarous system of
lassos and Spanish saddles for dragging cattle about,
was entirely repudiated on his ranch, and his large
flocks of improved breeds were quite tame and well
cared for. The deceased was a practical friend to
the natives employed on his -place, manifesting a
careful regard for their health and comfort that will
cause him to be sadly missed. Under the former
system of the Judiciary, he filled with credit the
position of a Local Circuit Judge for this Island,
and at the time of his death was School AgeTnt of the
Board of Education for the District of Eoolauloa.
Mr. Stoney was a native of King's county, Ireland,
and was aged 52 years and 7 months.
Peucx Court. Monday, 4th inst, Hau, a native,
was arraigned for an assault and battery on a Jap
anese named Juba. The assult was unprovoked,
and Ilau was fined 10. Tuesday 5th, the case nf
William Hall, charged with selling intoxicating
drinks or substances (beer) to natives, on the 25'.h
ult., came up for decision. The testimony was to-.
luminous, and in same parts of ao contradictory a
nature that whichever way the judgment should
fall, it was evident there had been what is some-'
times called tall swearing " one side or the other.
The Court, after a lengthy and thorough review of
the testimony, found, the accused guilty of th
charge, and Imposed a fine of $100 costs. $5.80.
Kalili, a native, for being drunk and disturbing the,
peace, was warned and discharged. A large-sized ;
gambling case was the next on trial, seven native
were arraigned for hawing played cards for money
on Saturday last, and far Info the night," One wit-'
ness testified to having lost $37. The little game
was what is technically known aa bluff," and a
good det, of money appeared to have changed
handa. .' The man who lost the $37, said be em
ployed a person to stand behind him to whom be
gave ten cents m game to bring him luck appar
ently a bad speculation. The gamblers were fined
$10 each and sentenced to five days imprisonment
at hard labor, in addition. .They have noted an
appeal to Judge Kamakan. Oa Thursday, one
Mabiai, was found guilty of gros cheat, in obtain
ing goods under false pretences, and fined $50.
Appealed to Judge Kamakatu On Friday the 7tb,
there was one solitary case a drunk that of no
less a person than Jobs Smith. - Whether it was the
original John -Smith, does not appear, but when
the name was called In Court, the Bench, the bar,
and the nsual ccowd of idlers pricked up their ears
and elevated their eye-brows to get a good look at
the bearer of so celebrated a name. But John

really a disappointment not to have seen John in
Court, for there are many pleasant and interesting
reminiscences connected with bis name. He was
the individual who bad an adventure with Poca
hontas, and a couple of hnndred or so years later
lived in London, subsequently appearing for a
time in Paris as Emperor Napoleon No. 3. We re

Tub Calendar. There is but one Saint's day
during next week, and that Is St. Lucy's, on
Wednesday the 13tb. The traditional account of
this saint; which is sufficiently fabulous, is that she
was born at Syracuse and martyred a. j. 305.
Having determined to devote herself to a religious j
life, she declined "the addresses of a young noble
man who declared that her brilliant eyes haunted
him night and day. She thereupon cut out ber
eyes and sent them to bim. She, also gave the
whole of her fortune to the poor. In order to re

pair, of eyes more beauti'nl than before.. Her
suitor enraged at his repulse and at the loss of his
expected fortune, denounced ber to the heathen
judge, who ordered her to be put to death.
From tux Guano Islands. By the arrival of the

dates from the islands to the 21st alt The weather

the bark Franctt was scuttled by two of the crew.
This it will be remembered was the vessel on board
of which there was a mutiny at anchor off this port
on the 20th of September last, and the two men then"
implicated were-the ones who scuttled the ship at the
island.' By the strenuous exertions of the shore
party, the leak was got under, although the vessel
at one time had 6 feet of water in the hold ; and the
anger holes were plugged up so that she proceeded
on ber voyage on the 28th. Had the attempt to sink
the vessel been successful, it would have included

thanks. We glean the following items of interest :
November 21st, at Waimea, at about 3 o'clock,
A. M., a fire broke ont )n Akana's store and dwell
ing, and destroyed it Two Chinamen occupied
the bouse, and they saved some of the goods.
About 100 bagii of paddy were roasted." " The Chi
namen reported that the house was set'on fire' from
the outside, but from some circumstances, there
was a suspicion that the Chinamen themselves did It.
During the 22nd, 23rd and 24th. it rained almost
constantly at Waimea. witb the wind strong from
the south. The liver rose to .a freshet, and the
natives were paddling in canoes over the taro
patches and on the road.
Our Koloa letter says : We had the heaviest
freshet here on the night of the 22nd that baa been
'since 1846. It has washed away bridges, cane and
taro, and done a great amount of damage to build
ings and roads. Some of the houses in Koloa had
two feet of water in tbem. We had another freshet
on the night of the 25th, but not quite so high as
the first. The' wind was from Boutbeaso"BOUtb

count no lees than twenty-three who have left us for
the other side ol the river since the beginning of
the year which Is now drawing to a close. The an
nouncement on Sunday morning last that Mr. Desha
bad died suddenly during the night, was received
throughout the -: community witb- sincere sorrow.
During bis tesidence -here of over twenty-four
years, the deceased has made many friends who
knew his good qualities, and we can safely say, no
enemies. . In his position as purveyor aod as gen
eral manager and nurse in the Queen's Hospital,
which be occupied from the day of its first opening,
be was preeminently useful the right man in the
right place. - With the native patients he was par
ticularly attentive and careful, and his memory will
be cherished with affection, as that of a' true friend
of the race. His knowledge of medicine was ex
tensive, and to quote the words of our contempo
rary, " It is no detraction from the skillful physi
cians who have presided over the Queen's Hospital
to say that uo small proportion of the great bene
fits conferred upon the public by it has been owing
to bis careful and intelligent performance cf his
duties." The funeral took place on Sunday after
noon, the 3d instant, from the Catholic Church, and
was uumerously attended by our citizens, the
cortege being escorted to the burial ground by the.

Compounding a Fbi-okt. A correspondent writ-'
Ing from Kauai, gives an account of the doings of
a native policeman in the neighborhood of Koloa,
that if true, shows a lamentable degree cf slack
ness In the administration of Justice. Our corres
pondent says that be knows of a number of in
stances wbera felonies have been commuted and
the officers of the police have negotiated with the
offenders for the payment to them of certain sums
of money. Id consideration of which they offered to
abstain, from prosecuting. In the most of these
cases to be sure, the 'offense has been trivial, and
the amount of money proposed for enmposiUoa baa
been small, but the principle is the same. The
writer goes en to tell that quite recently be over
head a prominent member of the native constabu
lary fn conversation with a party who had broken
into a bouse in the absence of the owner on Haw
aii, and stolen therefrom a ssddlo and other arti
cles. The policeman told the thief that if be would
band over fifteen dollars, be should not be prose
cuted for what be bad done. The offender ac
knowledged la presence of our correspondent andl
others, that he was guilty, but could not raise the
required fifteen dollars, nor even ten, to which sum
the prjee of forbearance wag reduced by the po
liceman. We are to suppose however that no nros-
ecntion came of the affair, for we are told that our
correspondent laid the facta before the Deputy
Sheriff and the Circuit Judge of tbe Island, from
whom he got no satisfaction, they telling him there
wasno law that covered such a practice I The let
ter concludes by asking us wbetber or no there Is
any law on our statute books to apply? Most cer
tainly there is.' Aside from the very palpable fact
that such a person as the policeman in question
should be summarily dismissed from the force, be
could be indicted nndr-r Chapter 44, Section 6 of
the Revised Penal Code, which reads as follows :
Whoever instigates another to the commission of aa offense
by commanding, soliciting, or offering to hire, or otherwise en
deavoring tn Induce him to commit the aame, shall be subject
to the penalty or an attempt to coasaut such ffenae.
The offense itself, as described by our corres
pondept. is, together witb the penalty, set forth in
Section 12 of Chapter 20 of the Code.
JWe have no doubt whatever that if it be satis
factorily proved that neb practices as described
above are carried on by the native police, the prop
er antborjtiea will promptly see to it that justice Is
done, upon all concerned.

A Conferxkce or Spirits. A ghost story is going
around among the natives, and creates no little sen
sation. It is to the effect that at about 2 o'clock oo
last Thursday morning, a policeman stationed ia the .
neighborhood of Kawaiahao Church, heard noises
inside the building, and thinking to bag some law
breakers, approached and listened. He declares
that he heard what appeared to be a conclave of,
departed spirits of the chiefs, debating upon 4 he
aflairsof the nation, and ditingc!hed plaiuly
among the voices that of a late prominent member
of the House of Nobles.

is charged that they are inveterate enemies to pigeons
and doves, breaking their eggs and coolly appropri
ating their nests. On the ledge of the Court IIoue,
a pair of Miners have squatted " on the " claim "
of a lot of pigeons who bare for years pre-empted
the spot, and occupying the nest built already, are
iufpudently chattering over their conquest, whilo the
poor pigeons stand about, with dejoctod looks.

A Glimpse of Chicago as it noyg Appears
Notwithstanding the fearful exaggerations of fright,
ened correspondents, Chicago is yet a city of magnifi
cent proportions. If any stranger doubts this let
bim stand uyon the steps of the new Briggs or the
new Sherman and look to the west, to the north or
south. .Was. ever anywhere witnessed, even in eld
Chicago, such scenes of bustling life as are presented
on Randolph or Madison or Canal street ! The rush
and roar of traffic and travel, intensified because
contracted into narrower limits, is seen and heard on
all sides. Vehicular processions reaching out as far
as the vision reaches crowd the thoroughfares, while
the side-walks are lined with hurrying pedestrians
all aglow with business. Eastward from the position
named the stranger sees the river crowded wltbVrafl,
and even beyond, amidst the dust and TJebris left by
the fearful visitation of flame, tie beholds such mira
cles of labor as can bejvrought only by cool heads
and willing hands directed by an energy that meets
obstacles only to surmount them. The deuiou of
destruction has scotched not killed Chicago.
The " magnificent leveler," as some persons have
been pleased to call the great conflagration, bus
wrought .wondrous changes ia business locations.
The West Division teems witb unwonted activity.
Canal street has become a thoroughfare partaking of
all the characteristics of old Water, Lake and Clark .
streets. Printing offices and wholesale stores,' tele,
graph offices and insurance agencies, oemmissiou
men and stationers, are all gathered upon it, in a
very hodge-podge of mercantile cotigruities. The
streets farther west feel anv unwonted activity, while
West 'Lake, Randolph and Madison streets are'
crowded with sew business in a way that two weeks
ago would not have been dreamed of.
The mercantile greg&riousness the gathering In
close proximity of like business and professions
which was beginning to mark the metropolitan char
acter of the city, and which was noticeable only iti
the South Division, is not lost there even now. With
a fellow feeling characteristic of ad vracod sociality
in matters mercantile, the banks Lavu all or nearly
all located upon Wabash avenue, making it a tempo
rary Wall street. .The wholesale merchants have'
gathered upon the lake front, looking westward upon
Michigan avenoe, with only thin pine board's between
them. With what wondrous rapidity those wooden
buildings reared their friae fronts ! Alwl liu's tower
might be more imposing, but could not more quickly
have sptsmg into existence. Such of the railroads as
lost their depots in the common ruin have their
general offices established on Michigan avenue, near
Tbe ruins .are alive with'workers. Teams laden
with rubbish are filled np and borne away. New
foundations, broad and deep, that the superstructuro '
may be massive and magnificent, are being laid.
Tbtre is click of trowel and noise of hammer. People
who came to gaze upon ruins find them, but they find
also a ceaseless activity which shames their idle curi
osity. They see the ashes, but they feel them
pregnant with tbe phoenix which soon shall rise.
