SmtMSHtP Sirsidt. A late telegram states that '
the U. S Senate has put the China Mail Subsidy up I
to a million again, and it was believed that the
House would concur. California influence ia strongly j
in its favor. i
Acknowledgments. Ours are hereby tendered
Xo Mr. T. G. Thrum and to Capt. Dabcock for late
papers, received per Sumatra yesterday. This
community are indebted to the firm ot White Jt
Baner. News Dealers. San Francisco, for prompt
ness in forwarding papers.
ax i.kkor- we were wrongly iniormeu tDy an
Odd Fellow, too) the other day, when we stated
that Friday the 26th April was the 42d anniversary
of the establishment of Odd Fellowship in the U.S.
That event occurred in 1819, and yesterday was
the 53d anniversary.
An Ocean Race. The brig Hesperian and the
bark Queen Emma, both for San Francisco, sailed
pretty near together on Monday last, the former
getting otf at half-past 4, and the latter at half-past
3 o'clock. Somehow, bets appear to run in iavor
of the brig making the quickest passage.
WiiALEit at Lam aina. The American whale ship
Jireh l'erru, Captain Owen, is reported as having
arrived at Lahaiua, 125 days from New iSedl'ord.r
with 115 barrels sperm taken on tbe passage out.
The oil would be shipped lor this port per A elite
Merrill, and the ship will touch here lor letters.
Accipextal Death. Last Saturday afternoon a
native was thrown from his horse at Kulaokahua,
and when picked up was quite dead, having fallen
upon his head and apparently brokeu his neck. He
was a well-known man, and not under the influence
of liquor, but the bridle was broken and the horse
Keal Estate. The parcel of real estate at Kaulu-
jrela, on the further side of the Nuuauu stream, and
4ear the city was sold at auction on Saturday and
Brought S 1,100, being purchased for the Board of
Education. We understand it is intended for the use
of the Reformatory School. It is considered to have
sold under value.
Jlmpku Overboard. Last Monday, after the
Kilauea left the wharf and had got as far as the
light-house on her way out of the harbor, a native
who had lingered on board too long to bid fare
well to his friends, having in vain requested Capt.
McGregor to stop and put him on shore, leaped
overboard, and was picked up by a shore boat. It
was nothing for a Hawaiian to do, to whom swim
ming is as natural as walking.
Tol-r Across the Continent. A rare opportuni
ty occurs to witness a really tine and truthlul pan
orama, now on exhibition at the Theatre. Mr.
Batchelder, the proprietor, is on his way to the
Australian colonies, where he will doubtless meet
with a like success as has attended bis exhibitions
in the United States. In looking at the series of
views to be met with on the Paciac Railway us pre
sented by this diorarnic panorama, one may easily
imagine himself on the long journey across the on
tiiaent. . A Qceer Fisrr. An oopu was caught at the wharf
$Iund:iy morning, that was provided with a large
pair of wings, and a finny proboscis growing out of
t.Ue top of his head. A crowd of curiosity seers
gathered around the fisherman, and no ono was
irund who confessed to haviug e'er seen the like be
fyirc. It will be preserved and sent to some Euro
pean museum. If Profet-sor Ajassiz were here, be
wiuld doubtless secure the sj-ciuiec, at whatever
r ri.;e. -
IxcEsniAKT Attempt. At about 11 o'clock Mon
day night, a boat-boy pacing Mclnerny's store,
eornerof Merchant and Fort stieets. saw a llame of
T-rjre curling up from under the si Is of the building, in
the yard. A policeman was tailed, and the lire,
which had apparently been kindled but a short
time, was quickly extinguish')!. A couple of
Siones had been nulled away aid a bunch of shav-
"f iuirs and some pine chips iusa ted under the Hour
and s-t tire to. The unkuown wretch was evidently
very deliberate in his attempt. bringiug the mate
rials with him.
A Fizzle. The following las been handed us

Plover. All sportsmen knov that the plover al
most entirely migrate from thes- islands probably
to the oortiuvest coast of Amtrica in the early
part of April, and that after the middle of that
month and until the middle oi August, they are
very rarely to besaen in their isual haunts. Well,
notwithstanding that. Kawson lad the audacity the
other day to bring in a load of Uese delicious birds,
and they were so fat that on striking the ground
they burst open with their own weight. The best
way to cook thern is in the intive style, tightly
wrapped in tt-leaves and serve! hot, with hunger
sauce. Under those circiunst;nces we dare not
venture to say how many we ould eat.

Whoa Jancary! An amusing scene occurred
the other morning on IJeretania street. A mule,
too heavily loaded for tbe creature's ideas of com

and laying down, rolled over from side to tide,

and simply ejaculated, "Wboa. January!"
Foijck Cot'RT Judge Montgomery has taken a
week over in Koolau for his health, and F. II.
Harris, Fq. is acting as Folice Magistrate d'liing
his absence. Berond the ordinary quantum of
drunks, there has been no notable cases before this
: tribunal for some time, until yesterday there came
up one of those disgusting matters that are be-
coming too frequent ot late, and that attract a
crowd of pruriently curious listeners. One Enoch
j Kalauao. a young native, a schoolmaster, was ac
! eused of having connection with a young girl under
fourteen. ithout pleading to the charge, the de
fendant obtained a postponement until this morning.
The offense is a grave one, in the punishment ot
which tbe community is interested, and we trust
that if this case should be proven against tbe de
fendant, be will be dealt with as severely as the
' law allows.
A decidedly new sensation is promised us on the
12th of next August. The famous M. Plantamour,
professor of astronomy at Geneva, Switzerland, has
discovered a new comet which, it is declared, exceeds
in size any similar meteor hitherto known of. By
the elaborate calculations of this learned observer, the
new comet is darting directly toward our globe with
prodigious velocity, and will come into collision with
it on tbe 12th of August, as aforesaid. Tbe approach
of this terrific object will be heralded by an extraor
dinary degree of heat ; and the catastrophe cannot
possibly be avoided unless by a deflection, not now to
r4 be prognosticated, produced by the comet impinging
on tbe attractive scope of some other heavenly body.
Let us hope and pray for the "deflection," and at
the same time cultivate our faith iu the theory that
comets are merely bodies of luminous gas, which,
even if coming in collision with the earth, could do
no very extensive damage.
From IIilo. Our attentive correspondent at IIilo

to start on Wednesday. Captain C. was greatly
pleased with IIilo, but thought that Captain Spen
cer's frank hospitality might spoil him if he lin
gered. The IIilo Band gave him a welcome on Mon
day evening in Sir Thomas garden, and sundry
little speeches were got off, ono of which is worth
recording : " We welcome you as a naval officer of
Queen Victoria, and as the guest of Captain Spen

welcome to his large house. We also welcome you to

A CriKAP Scoar Mill. We clip the following
from a recent number of tbe Sydney Mail: A
cheap sugar mill, wbich will crush tbe cane, boil
the juice, and (if we may be permitted to coin a
word) centrifugalate the sugar, is a desideratum
amongst our sugar-growers. Self-unloading centri
fugal machines are expensive, and cannot always
be reached by the sugar-growers ; whereas nut
chines like those used at the St. Helena Migar
house, in Queensland, can be made for about JE30,
j and the sugar made by their aid is quite as good as
j that produced by the more expensive apparatus.
J We are glad to Cud that colonial engineering talent
j is turning its attention to this matter.- A Queens
land contemporary informs us that Mr. Joseph
I Collett has invented anew sugar mill, which iscon
j structed partly of wood, contains four horizontal
i rollers, and is driven by four horses. A mill of
j this kind has been erected by the inventor for Mr.
; li. Muir, ol Nerang Creek, has been tested, and is
j now at work manufacturing a clear, dry suar,
j finely crystalline, and of a good color. Mr. Collett
iiflirms that a mill ol this kind can be erected for
j JC15D. while for :HiO the whole apparatus required
' tor crushing and boiling, including mill pans, shed.
and, in fact, everything, may be set up. Our small
sugar-growers, who may live at a distance from a
large mill, ought, therefore, to combine their re
sources, and set up mills of their own. and by this
means avoid the numerous inconveniences to which
they are now subject. The whole progress of dis
covery with respect to the sugar industry warrants
the inference that practical knowledge and engi
neering talent, rather than extensive capital, are all
that are necessary to enable the farmer to produce
protitablo crops ot sugar.
A Savage Attempt to Murder. Last Wednesday
evening, at a quarter before eight o'clock, a native
boy came running in to the Station House with the
iniormation mat, jur. ienneu, wno keens a
variety store on the Kahhi road, about a mile and
a half from town, bad been almost killed by a ua-
tive named .Makauui. Uotn ttie Marshal aim depu
ty were near at hand and proceeded with all possi
ble dispatch to the place, accompanied by Dr.
McGiew. Mr. Uennett was found to Lave received
two cuts with a large 12-inch butcher knife, one
across the back of the neck, at tbe base of tbe skull,
which was six inches long and one und a half deep,
and the other un the check, which was but slight.
Although the bist cut made a horrible gash, und
bled profusely, the Doctor, who promptly dressed
the wound, apprehends no immediate danger to
life. The wounded man wa.si removed to tbe
American Seamen's Hospital last night on a litter.
The circumstances of this murderous assault, as
stated by Mr. Dennett, are thwse. During the af
ternoon, the assailant, a native shoemaker, bad been
in the shop once or twice, and iu the evening at
about ball-past seven came in to purchase a bottle
of oil. Hi is Mr. IS. had measured lor hnu. when

but a silent t

No one was in the shop at tho time of the
assault besides. Bennett and the native. Tbe
police were promptly despatchi'd in search of
the man described by Mr. Bennett, and at 10
o'clock Makanui was arrested, in bed in his house
on Smith 'Street and locked up in the Station
House. He denied all knowledge of the atTtir.
When Mr. Bennett was brought in, Makanui was
confronted with bim, but be declared that was not
the man, and he was accordingly liberated. As Mr.
B. insisted that bis assailant was a person who bad
formerly worked for tbe late S. Bennett, shoemaker,
three men were in succession brought, named Kipi,
Palau and Kalama, who bad at one time worked in tbe
shoemaker's shop, but they were not identified. At
a late hour another shoemaker named Manu, was
also broucht to the station bouse. The man who is
said to have struck Mr. Bennett, is describe! by bim
to be a native witn a very lignt complexion, aoout a
feet 6 inches high, etout built, moustache, speaks
good English, full face ; and although nine difierent
parties have been takeu before him he has not yet
identified the one who cut him. There is to be seen
at the station bouse the knife with which Bennett
was cut. It is a Common butcher knife, 1-j inches in
length ; any persun who has lost such a knife, will
confer a favor by calling at the station house and
examine this one, &s it may lead to the apprehension
of the person who used the same upon Mr. Benuett.
The Marshal has offered a reward of 100 to any
person who will give such information as will leal to
the arrest or conviction of the person who committed
the assault. The assault was a most diabolical one,
and every good citizen ought to interest himself and
assist the police in bringing the miscreant to justice.
At a late hour yesterday afternoon, the tenth.
man was confronted with Mr. Bennett who immediate
ly recognized him as the individual who assanlted him
on "iVednesday evening. His name is Kahilialau,
and be lives about a half a mile beydnd Mr. Bennett's
store. He is well-known about the fish-market, as a
peddler of ti-!eaves and occasionally mats, and
Ins the character of lleing a kanaka apiki a
rogue. When arrested be denied all knowledge
of the affair, said he did not understand any Eng
lish, and early last night commenced to get crazy.

thirty or forty years ago. by me ot tbe then uuti

' "The unjustifiable restraint ,put upon the

The estimate formed by our Japanese critic of
; the state ot society in Honolulu, is. to be sine, a
j little above that of tbe lean of Richmond, who
: looks npon us as the refuse of civilization," but
the former has conceived a pretty "low down'

possible that we may sometime entertain angels
unawares, out in mm instance it is clear tnat we
have entertained a veritable snob. Hear him :

J community is essentially a chin ch going one, though

! ful. Hypocrisy ts a characteristic fin ot the place,
and the most casual observer cannot fail to note
the fact. But not only are they hypocritical : they
would also fain persuade the stranger that they tire
of tbe very ei' of society, and are therefore gen
erally careful not to mention that they aie for tbe
most part whaling captains and officers aud their
families, who, having enjoyed the advantage of a
slight acquaintance with occasional visitors to the

The foregoing extracts will Biifllce. as showing
the general bias of this writer for the enlightenment
of Japan upon mutters Hawaiian. He is more re
liable when he undertakes to describe natural
objects, as for instance this sketch of the first ap
pearance of Honolulu from the sea, with which we
conclude our extracts :
"After -being tossed about on the tempestuous
main. nd blown hither and thither by opposing
winds not to mention tho settlement of that littlo
account which many of us have to close with old
Neptune and after being denied tho refreshing
view of land for many long and weary days, the
first look at that bright little isle in mid ocean, is
sure to induce pleasurable emotions. As we ap
proach Honolulu, a lovely panorama is presented
to our glad and wondering eyes. Just outside tho
harbour, the billows of tho blue and glistering sea
dash upon the coral reef, while around us several
little coasters, their snowy canvas glowing In tho
morning sun, throw the spray from tbeir trembling
bows as they glide swiftly onward. In the little
harbour, as we draw near, appear the tall and tap
ering spars of many a noble keel, ships that have
fought the elements from oce:iu to ocean, ami
bravely weathered the drear und stormy Horn, or
the d lingers of the Arctic. All looks beautiful.
The city is ulinosl bidden by verdant trees of trop
ical luxuriance : white lofty houses glisten in the
sunlight, while church steeples rind lofty lowers up
i eur their snowy heads far above them all com
bining, with the fertile vulleys and the lovely hills
rising one above the other, to lend a splendour to
the scene, ami to produce one of those grandly
picturesque views rarely offered, and which, once
seen, remains clear to the mind's eye for years."

I had occasion the other night to visit one of our

after supper if you will (though 1 don't eat any,
: aud Mrs Partington Bays the terms are unanimous)
in reality after dark: Tbe first phrase however

j and encounter other cunning entrupments, unin

termed a perilous venture. 1 think a former letter
of mine informed you that IIilo smiled iu the posses

seem to your readers. I can assure tbeiu that I don't
exaggerate. It did pristine duty near tbe Slution-

ot recKiess economy wiucn distinguishes our public

j an agreeable concatenation for the young and ardent
j of the mingling sexes whose mistakes are simple fun
to them, is not so pleasant nor eo safe for iiervou9

' morality rip.
So like a true though singular patriot who finds
i sermons in stones, I profited by the occasion to elicit
; from my ballot-burdened friend a promise and a
pledge that he would picture this plague of darkness
j in such glowing colors to other Honorable gentlemen

to the grand display of broad Celda of nulling can

acres only awaiting tho fructifying influence of wa
ter to develop their latent treasures. And selonoe,
the faithful handmaid of wealth, haa been wisely

Cupidity, like Cupid, ia blind, and must needa em

and you arc convinced of tho occasion of a glorious
future. And the right men, in the Providence of
God, are here. The noble religions spirit that, half
a hundred years ago, dedicated the lives and labors
of American missionaries to these tropio fields can
be made as serviceable on a plantation as in tho pul
pit. The second missionary generation have largely
aocepted a call from tho cane fields. With an easy
unconstraint they are truly loyal to thia Kingdom.
They are " to tho manor born," and not accidental
sojourners full of disaffection towards their situation
But Maliko's oosy cove is Wore us, aud tho cant
