apparent, and an we Consider it the province of

the journalist who claims to understand his bu&i-
neH and who is equal to the time to lead
rather than follow the public demand, we have
decided to commence the sue, during the coming
week, of a Semi-Weekiv Commercial Advertiser,
in addition to the regular weekly of Saturday.

It will arjiear on Tuesday and Ihurertav ruoru-
ings, and .will coutain, besides the fullest and
latest foreign intelligence, the current commercial
and shipping news, editorials, items of local news,
the proceedings in Courts, new advertisements,
etc., etc. It will be a valuable medium for local
and transient advertising, in that respect supplv-
ing want not met by the weekly papers ; and
in this particular we solicit the patronage of the
community, with every confidence that our new
enterprise will meet with the requisite support
The Sejii-Wheklt Commercial Advertiser will

Brilliant Meteor A magnificent meteor was

Eartuqfake. A slight shock of earthquake was We may be allowed to say here, that we have heard
iticed on Monday eveuing last, at about half-past
rbt o'clock. A hanging lamp, and a watch-chain,
Ispended clear from a hook, were seen to vibrate
isibly. The motion was from south to north, and
lasted about ten seconds.
Storm on Scxdat. During Saturday night last,
the wiml, that had been light and southerly during
the week, hauled to the northward, and blew fiercely
at times, with squalls of rain, during Sunday. We
hear of trees and fences blown down, but of no
serious damage on this island. From the windward
side of the other ishwnls. howevpr. we mv . v m . r tn
. . , a .
hear somewhat more of the effects of the storm.
Severe Accident. Last Saturday night, a young
man named William Wilson, a foreigner, employed
in the Royal Hotel liquor saloon, fell from an upper
story window on to the stone pavement below, a
distance of about twenty feet. Singularly enough,
no bones were broken by the terrible fall, but Wilson
is evidently injured internally, and perhaps to an
extent that will prove fatal.
Conflsiom of Toxgles. The mischief done at
! the tower of Babel will doubtless be perpetuated as
long as the world stands. We see some of the cun-
sequences in our Courts, when the examination of
i witnesses is going on. Thus we have seen a question
j in English put into Hawaiian, from that to a dialect
j of Chinese, then to another dialect of Chinese to the
: witness, and so along back corues the answer to the
. jury. t
Schooner Lavxch. Messrs Tibbetts & Sorensofc
: will launch the fine new schooner which has bee
built at their yard, foot of CJueeu street, at eigfj$
o'clock this morning. We have previously spoken in
commendation of the handsome model of this vessel,
which in the opinion of good judges will prove her-
self a very fast sailer as well as a large carrier. The
namc decided upon by her owners is the " Uilama,"
which is William, Hawaiianized.
TnE Devonshire This ship, which arrived on
Monday last, leaking badly, having discharged some
thing over 100,000 feet of lumber into a lighter, re
ducing her draft of water to a little over twenty feet,
was towed into port yesterday morning.
onthire is an old ship, having been built near Bath,
i Me., over twenty years ago, and having been em
I ployed for a long time as a packet between New York
1 and Liverpool. She has been terribly strained in
the gales she experienced siuce leaving Port Gamble,
and it will be an extensive job to repair her.
.Sugar Keo Making. It is well worth while to go
into llopper's factory on King street and see the new
j machinery that he has lately put up to turn out
! otaves for sugar kegs. One machine seizes the rough
11 1 IT . 1 . .t
hocks, ana snoes on me staves snapea to tue curve
that they will have in the finished keg. The next
' trims the ends to their right length, while still
, another set of saws gives the desire! taper both ways
to the stave. The exactness with which all the
staves are made ensures a tight keg, especially as
the veteran Coleman has the assembling of the dif-
ferent parts under his charge.
A Set-to. The natives of these Islands, are not
by nature or custom given to fighting, and when
they do quarrel it is mostly a war of words, seldom
coming to blows. One day this week, however, we
witnessed a regular stand up " combat between
two natives, on a quiet street and in a yard, nil by :
themselves. Our attention was attracted to the
scene, by noticing quite a crowd gathered on the
outside of the fence, who were intently gazing at the
M mill." We could not learn the cause of the quar
rel, but the fighting was evidently real and iu i
earnest, the blows soundiuz like tlmse of a sledge
hammer, as one or the other bit the dust, apparently
not much hurt, however, for it was up and at it
... . .

enough away not to see the fizht, but near enough to

of the brutal affair.

there is a lull, and the well-worn bencht-s aie bare.
So it has been during the past week. On Monday,
three drifnks were fined in the usual amounts. one
a dollar extra, for being drunk on Sunday. Hy
way of rarity, a Chinamen was arrested for drunk
enness, but was bailed out. und did not appear
Drunkenness is a vice not often imputed to the
Celestials, at all eveuta, not in pulilic. A o. pro,
was entered in an embezzlement case, and one or
two unimportant civil cases were disposed of and
so ends the record for the week.

Geo. PauECEFOET's Readings. The entertainment
given last Thursday evening by Mr. Pauncefort at
BulTuin's Hull, drew together a select aud apprecia
tive audience to hear his rendition of Dickens'
Christmas Carols, and Boots at the Holly Tree Inn.
Coming as he did, a stranger among us, uuheralded,
the selection for the display of his elocutionary and
dramatic powers, and for exciting the sympathy
aud securing the good will of his audience, was
most appropriate, and has proved successful. 1'he
dream of Ebenezer Sorooge was told with such
masterly eflect that he carried his hearers at times
in merriment, and then in deep sympathy with him,
till at last the " Ghost of Christmas yet to come,"
vanishing and distorted, proved to be his own bed-
post. If Mr. Pauncefort had not sufficient proof of
appreciativeness up to this part from his audience,
Ue certainly had it then. Mr. Pauncefort cannot
justly be compared with the late Walter Montgomery,
for the reason that the styles of the two artists differ
essentially. Mr. P., without a question, docs Dick-
eus well ; while Montgomery did all alike well.
Very pleasing and in perfect harmony with the
selections were the stage arrangements, looking like
and giving the eflect of a parlor entertainment a
marked contrast with the sceuery and stage effect of
the Royal Hawaiian Theatre. Mr. P. intends to give
another entertaiumeut on Monday, when " Nicholas
Nickleby " will be presented, and we bespeak for
him a full house. Public entertainments of an intel-
lectual aad literary sort are too rare in this isolated
community, and we must profit by them when the
opportunity offers. Tickets of admission fcl.OO and
Apathy A ho it Elections. Our reporter, hearing
some one casually remark on the street last Monday
tnat there was to be a public meeting at o o'clock on
that afternoon at Kaumakapili Church, at which
something was going to be said or done on the sub
ject of the coming election for Representatives,
accordingly determined to " make a note on't," and
providing himself with pencils and paper, at the
hour appointed betook himself to the church. Arriv
ing at the door a little late, he expected to find a
large assemblage and the meeting in operation, but
behold, the huge barnlike edifice was utterly tenant
less ! On the curbstone on the opposite ride of the
street, a dozen or so of natives were sitting idly
chatting, but upon almost any subject but poluics.
Aj length, at half-past three, one of the candidates
for Honolulu, who was nominated at the meeting a
fortnight ago, came along and entered the church,
wuen an the bystanders, consisting of one judge,
two reporters, six lawyers, three small kamaliit and
five others, who looked as though they might be
voters and evidently were not candidates filed in
and took their seats. And that was all there was of
the meeting. Visions of M large and enthusiastic "
dwindled down in our reporter's mind to " small
and select." After sitting and looking at one
another quaker meeting ftshion until about four
o'elock, some one suggested tbe propriety of having
a song, with a view apparently of turning the affair
into a ' free and easy ; " but the ntaid character of
the house forbade the idea, and ' the audience dis
persed very quietly." How does that lead fjr an
account of a political meeting in Honolulu, just
before the election All this confirms our statement
last week, that the people are so well convinced that
the sending of Representatives to the Legislature
under the present administration is a complete farce,
without however any place for the laugh to come in
on the people's side, that they are perfectly apa
thetic about the elections.

A Late Description of Kilauea.
The Rev. T. Conn of H&O, under date of 3ft h

Science and Arts," describing a viit to the

was nt onee surprised with the great changes
ina ni lest. I had no sooner descended troiu Uie
northern terrace, or black rim, tlian I found my
self on new ground. All old trucks and land
marks were obliterated. All was recast. About
hall a mile from the south lake I began to rise
on an angle of some 25 until I was on n level
with the run of the euldron. Almut three hund
red yards from the pit the heat was ho great. End
the gases so pungent, that I could not proceed in
a direct hue to the margin. Being ur
I made a detour, nnd aptin attempted n direct
apprjneh. Failing in this, I retreated to a snicr
atmosphere, and then flanked the fiery pit nt
some distance, traveling southwestward for half a
mile. Ur n; I found the smoke and ibises lighter,
and again I advanced on the crater nt right
angles. With difficulty I succeeded in nudum?
the rim. and a null of wind favoring bv swecniug
off the densi: smoke of the pit in another direction,
I caught a twenty-second glimpse of the awful
aby-ss below. I judged the pit of Hnlemnumati
to be seven hundred feet deep, one mile and a
half long from cast to west, nnd one mile from
north to south. But it was full of dense columns
of smoke and sulphurous gases which were nip

E hasty retreat to the northwest, where I reached
the original black-terrace, and, mounting nn
inactive cone some twenty-five feet high, rested
in a current of cooler and purer air. and surveyed
tho marvelous scene I had iust loft. There is a
great body of molten matter in this pit, recog-
uized by its sullen mutterings, and splashings und
surgings, and by the blody glow thrown noon
the uprising columns of smoke at night. But
the heat and smoke are so great, that it is unsafe
to approach the rim of the critter, and usually

An active Crater on Manna Jjoa. W hile nt
Kilauea, the atmosphere being clear nt night, 1
had a view of an active volcano on Mauna Loa
some 13,000 foot high, and about four miles
south by west of Mokuawcoweo, the summit
crater. This volcano has been burning for week",
though not often seen at Ililo on account of
clouds. Its bearing is about southwest from
Ililo, and, as I judge, about north from Kahuku
in Kau. I . is r-aid that bcveral IJawaiiann of
Kau have visited it. They bay that it is a small
lateral crater of Mokuaweoweo, about four miles
distant. It has long been extinct, but it now
tioiis in fiery swirls, much like Kilauea. Its
action is unequal, sometimes throwing np bril-
lioat jets, and eloudH of smoke, and anon eoto-
ing quietly in its deep caverns. It baa not over-;

have been entirely abandoned this year ; or at
least, as far a we can learn, no pVEfjaEatsOM have
been made ".his season for taking whales. The
destruction of the whaling reonett in the Polascas,
noticed ebewherc in our paper, and the conse
quent advance in the pries ol oil, should prove a
great incentive to thnrc formerly engaged in the
business, to resume their old occupation. As far
oa we can leirn. the advance in nrios of all kinds

taking of w hales a business not be despised, even

would stab: that five or six whales, of tin: species
kuown as the California tjray, were seen by the
pir-scr.gers of the steamer California yesterday
morning, very near tlie entrance to Falr-o Bay.
Captain Conner expressed it as his opinion that
they were unusually numerous, and would be still
bore so in a short time ; so weadvise our whalers
to be on the alert, and do Mine business while
they have ar, opportunity, and whales arc plenty.
