An Awkinq. One of the native newspapers re
cently contained a complaint in relation to the expos
ure to the weather of the deck passengers of the
steamer Kilauea. The majority of that class of pas
sengers are obliged to lie on the deck without any
protection from the fierce heat of the sun or from the
rain and spray. All who have voyaged on the steamer
will see at once the force of the complaint. An
awning might be spread along each side of the house
on deck which contains the officers' rooms, with very
little difficulty and trifling expense. It would
prevent much suffering and add to the popularity of
Opium Smuggling. Last Wednesday, acoalpasser
belonging to the P. M. S. S. Costa Rica, named
James Brown, was arraigned in the Police Court on
a charge of smuggling opium. He was arrested in
the act of offering for sale to a Chinaman three
boxes of the prepared article. He pleaded guilty
before the Court, but said he was ignorant of the
rules of the port (quite an unlikely story) and
begged for a merciful sentence, he being a poor man,
and having a wife and seven children dependent on
him, but who are living in Glasgow. The Chief En
gineer of the steamer gave Brown a good character,
and stated that his wages were 35 per month. The
statute prescribes that the punishment in such cases
shall be by fine of " not less than fifty nor more than
one thousand dollars, or imprisonment at hard labor
not exceeding two years, in the discretion of the
court." The opium as smuggled was produced in
Court, and the three packages were shown to be
worth $7 each in San Francisco, the price here be
ing $15. Under all the circumstances, the Court
imposed a fine of one hundred dollars and costs. On
the same day, the Custom House officials found three
more boxes of opium in the baggage of another of
the crew. This man stated that Brown gave him the
package to take care of for him, a few days before
getting into port. As it was considered that Brown
was already sufficiently punished, no further prose
cution was instituted, and the opium was confiscated.
Imported Birds. By the last steamer from San
Francisco, a number of California mocking birds
were received by His Excellency the Minister of For
eign Affairs. The lot consisted of twelve when sent
from San Diego, and ten have survived the voyage,
which is a reasonably successful result. They are at
present in charge of Mr. J. A. Hassinger, FJchard
street, who has taste and skill in the care of birds. If
they shall eventually increase and thrive here, they
will be an undoubted benefit to the country as they are
noted as destructive of insects. In song and habit
as well as appearance they are closely allied to the
celebrated and much admired mocking birds of the
A mistake has been made by most people in
calling the little rice pests by the name of Java
sparrows. The latter is a larger and differently marked
bird, and has not bred in numbers, so far as we are
aware. The rice birds were we think brought here
from Japan, some years ago. We do not know that
they have any proclivity for insects, but they are in
dustrious and destructive rice-eaters. The sweet
singing California linnets, which are somewhat plen
tiful, should not le confounded with the rice birds.
English sparrows, a cagefull of which were im
ported by this office and let loose a year ago last
May, do not appear to have prospered, though it is
reported that individuals have been seen at Waikiki.
We shall endeavor to make arrangements with
correspondents in California for the introduction
here of the well-known meadow-lark and the robin-
redbreast, both good insectiverous birds.
Deeds of Violence. It is seldom that murder is
heard of among the Hawaiians, but by the last ar
rival from Hawaii, news is brought of two murders
and a suicide. The first case however is indefinite,
inasmuch as a man has been missing in Puna since
July Oth, and is suppose! to have been killed by a
fellow-herdsman. Search was being made for the
body. The other story comes from Hamakua, on the
same island, and is sufficiently precise in its fearful
details. It seems that on the 1-Jth of August, a man
named Kaomoa and his wife and daughter, who bad
been out in a field at work, were returning home at
dusk, when nearing the house, the father told the
girl to go cn ahead. After a while, hearing her
father's voice calling from near the gate of the lot,
the girl went out in the dark, and when approach
ing near, her father said " Don't come near me, I
am excited." In a few minutes he came into the
house, struck a light, kissed his father, mother,
brother and daughter, and then said to the latter
" Go and bring your mother ; I have killed her out
there." While the family ran out to where the wo
man lay, Kaomoa took a stout fish line and went out,
and when search was made for him a half an hour
later, it was found that he had saved the country the
trouble and expense of a trial and execution by
hanging himself in a neighboring unoccupied house.
The woman was quite dead when found, having re
ceived mortal knife wounds in the neck, breast and
back, besides being horribly cut in the face. The
couple, though many years married, had not lived
happily together, and Kaomoa had been known to
threaten the life of his wife before.

The Australian Mail Service.
Rumors and counter rumors have been rife as to
the prubabilities if a reopening of steamship com
munication between California and the Colonies of
Australia and New Zealand. The following i the
latest telegram on the subject :
New York, Aug. IS. English mail advices say
that New South Wales has entered into a provisional
contract for mail service between Sydney nnd Liver
pool, by way of San Francisco. The contractors,
who represent extensive firms connected with the
Colonies, are now in London to complete arrange
ments previously made by telegraph.
A private letter from Sa:t Francico. under date
of the 231 August says : Hall has had hi steam
ship subsidy contract signed with the New South
Wales Government, and he is now in Europe ar
ranging for his boats. I understand that he has
strong backers, and that the line is bound to be a
success, running via Fiji and Honolulu, with Syd
ney as the terminus. A branch bo:tl is to cuiim-et
Auckland and the Fijis. There are to bo four ves
sels, propellers. 2,2"i) tons each, compound engines,
2S0 foet over all, 35 foot beam, with accommoda
tion lor tst) first-class and 120 second and third class
passengers. Everything is to be well urrangl and
fitted, and the passage between Sati Francisco ami
Sydney is to be made in 2.1 or 30 days, according
to the amount of subsidy to be paid for the shorter
or longer passage."
Another letter states that the first boat will be
dispatched from Sydney in November next.
Later from New Zealand and Australia.

The Order of Good Templars was making great

The most interesting item of news by this ui rival,
is the report from Sydney by lelegrum. that "Cap

possession of New Guinea, in the tjueen's name.'
Commenting n this, the N. Z. 7er or July 5,
Reverting, however, to the lloekhamploa tele
gram, never, perhaps, in the history ol adventure,
has there been a parallel to it. Here is the an
nouncement of the annexation to Her Majesty's do
minions of the largest island in the world, teem
ing with every variety of mineral and vegetuble
products ; with every gradation of climate, from
the region of eternal snow to the sweltering heat of
the swamp jungle ; indented witli bays ami har
bors, intersected by navigable rivers, ami occupied
by at least three distinct races of men, numbering
several millions ; and it is packed, in the most business-like
way possible, between a Sydney telegram
announcing that Joseph Ward A Co., have been ap
pointed colliery agents, and that the Virlnrin
would sail for Auckland the same day. and an Ade
laide telegram quoting the price of wheat, and an
nouncing that the old pensioners propose forming
a body-guard to the Governor." We live in a matter-of-fact
age, but this is tin broadest illustration
of the truth that we have yet stumbled across.
The only touch of romance about it is the expiring
flame of the Adelaide veterans. Long may they
live to guard their Governor, who represents their
Queen. But it will take younger men to form a
body-guard to the first Governor of New Guineu.
The Norman conquest of Kngland will be a joke to
the English conquest of Papua, if we try it with
steel and rifle, although the field of Hastings is re
garded as one of the " decisive battles of the
world.' and has somehow got intermingled with
the British Constitution, like the "Protestant suc
cession," and the fortunate descendants of the

the comparison is altogether against the mother
country ; but that is just the reason why it should
utilize them for the good of mankind. An idea
may be formed of the extent of Papua, when we
stafe that it commences at the equator in 131 dog.
L longitude, and terminates in 1.10 deg. E. longi
tude and 10 deg. S. latitude. On the north, almost
in the position of tins Gulf of Carpentaria on the
Australian Continent, but relatively larger, is Geel
vinck Bay, between Point D'Urville and Cape Mar
mori. Its entrance is marked by several islands.
On the south, separated from the mainland by the
Strait of Dourga. is Frederick Henry Island, which
stands in the same relation to Papua that Tasmania
does to Australia. It has also its great Southern
Bight, and the Gulf of Papua. On the northwest,
there is a great inlet; but little is known of the
generally topography of the country. That it will
be one of the most valuable possessions of the
British Crown, in the not distant future, there can
be no reason to doubt. The only 1'uropean Power
that has a foothold between its Northern seaboard
and China and Japan, is Spain, which holds the
Philipines. The possession of Papua gives to Eng
land the undisputed command of the South Pacific
and China seas.

The Contagious Diseases Acts.
Silt.- Knowing the interest you take in the work
ing of these essentially benevolent "Acts," I feel
you will like to know something of their moral
bearing on the unfortunate subjects of tbem, which
I am sure can be corroborated by our fellow work
ers in the other protected districts." The public
have little idea of the truth, and are but too easily
swayed into opposition by the excited, indelicate,
and false statements of a few fanatics who rave
against a matter they do not in the least understand,
and build up their statements on imaginary founda
tions. The facts are simply told. From the 1st of Jan
uary of this year only, to the present time, twenty
seven women have gone straight from this hospital,
either to their friends or to refuges. Several
others who have been subject to the " Acts,"
though not in hospital during this particular period,
have caused their names to be taken ofT " the reg
ister" and are living respectably ; and this I Crmly
believe to be owing to the teaching given them not
only by our good chaplain, but by several ladies,
five of whom are wives of the neighboring clergy
(who would not but for the assistance of these
"Acts'" get to them) who kindly visit the hospital
twice a week, and give Bible and other classes in
the schoolroom of the establishment. They are
taught to get an honest livelihood, and a sewing
machine has been provided a.i a means thereto.
Gardening is encouraged as a recreation, and tools
are also provided lor that. A great amount of
needlework is done by the girls, both for their use
in hospital and for their own wear when they leave.
Books and innocent games are allowed in the even
ing. There is a chapel, and though the attendance is
voluntary, the seats are usually full, and there is
altcays a very fair attendance, and the attention of
these poor wanderers to the service thus offered
them might put to shame many a fashionable congre
gation. The subject of these "Acts" is not one

be allowed to be an exception. I am, Sir, yours

class wotlld make an attack on the Chinese. The
Pacific Steam Navigation Company employ tbem
in preference to Peruvians, not ho much for cheaper
work as because they are more teady and docile
than Peruvian. The latter are disposed to vent
their rage against the Chinese. The Government,
fearing that there might be something political at
the bottom of the affair, had ordered troop and
National Guards to remain under arm and lie in

Nkw Youk. Aug. 21. The IMUiln, referring to n
Tun's editorial on tbe subject of Mexican annexa
tion, says in speaking ot a despatch which the
Timm quotes : The importance of the despatch is
that it affords fresh pretence and argument to a
powerful Mexican annexation party. Because it is
stated that Germany want Mexico, or a good slice
of it. it is no reason tbut the United State should
step in and cary off tbe prize. There will be pow
erful and well organized attempts at Washington
next Winter to provoke a quarrel with Mexico.
The JinVMln admits that there is very little doubt
of its being favorably considered. High officials
have scarcely tried to conceal their annexation
sympathy, so that tbe opposition against a scheme
of Mexican aggrandizement can only proceed from
tbe good sense of the American people and tbe
moderation and discretion of the Government of
