The capital already invesi in Fiji is reckoned
says a Melbourne contempora " at about 650,
000. of which New South WaK bas contributed
290 000, Victoria 160,000, New Zealand 150,
000, Germany 30,000, America and England 20,
000. One firm in Sydney has invested between
60.000 and 70,000, and a Victorian firm between
25.000 and 30.000. 50.000 worth of Fijian de
bentures are beld in New Zealand. Of tbe above
capital some 30,000 are invested in small sailing
crafts and boats. 50,000 in bouse property in
Levuk.1, 70,000 in stocks in stores, and the bal
ance, viz., 500,000, in plantations.
We notice, by a paragraph in bur Australian
telegrams, that the Australian Steam Navigation
Company have decided to run a monthly steamer
to Fiji from Sydney, the first boat of which was to
leave on tbe 12th of November. It is evi
dent from this fact tbat the Sydney people are go
ing in to secure, if possible, the Island trade.

From New Zealand and Fiji.
Dy the arrival of tbe .Mikado on the 12th
we hive received Auckland files to Nov. 2Cth.
clip from the Herald of that date :
Sydney advices inform us that there is a desire
there to go it alone" in tbe matter cf tbe American
Mail Service, and that a public meeting to urge upon
the New South Wales Government such a course bts
been LelJ. Why such a selfish resolution sbould
have boen arrived at by the Sydney people, we are
at a loss to understand. Not only is tbe desire to
carry on the mail service irrespective of New Zealand
selfish, but it is foolish, inasmuch as it would stand
New South Wales another 40,000 ayear for what?
For the " honor and glory," and to save three days
in the length of the journey. It is amusing to find
our Syduey friends so wayward on such an account,
an! so particular to three days when it has been ob
liged, and without loss to its commerce, to put up
with delays ranging from three to twelve days. Did
our friends accept the proposition of landing tae mail
for New Zealand at the Cay of Islands, tbe difference
in time would actually be only two days. But even
the two days appears to be of too great importance to
tbe traJe and future pros pec is of New South Wales,
and so tbat the determination is if tbe possible to se
cure direct communicatioT ' irrespective of New
Zealand." Well, if our friends are bent upon carry- ;
ot ing out this litest folly, and so giving New Zealand ,
-c the go by, they mty rest assured that the insult will

pointed out. New Zealand is committed to the San
Francisco service, she has led the wav, and will not
resign the place to which ber geographical position
A passenger from Auckland to San Francisco
last September, sends to the Otago Witness a long
and spicy account of bis visit to Honolulu, which
is generally quite fair, and complimentary in its
tone? We quote a few paragraphs :
We mounted the broad stone stairs leading to
tbe second story of the hotel, and found ourselves
at once in a cool verandah, up tbe posts of which
numerous creepers twined, forming a delightful
shady nook for an arm-chair, a glass of claret, and
a good novel. A broad ball, where everything
was scrupulously clean, and the air of a purity to
which we were strangers after tbe smells and
closeness of the Jtikado, brought us to tbe counter,
which showed us that in style and conducting tbe
hotel was thoroughly American. Kanaka waiters
Kanaka being the generic name of the natives
and tbe only one which tbey readily answer to,
showed us to cool and beautifully clean rooms,
opening out into the balconies over which creepers
cluster in profusion. Lreakfast we bad in a large
open room, with several tables, and no furniture
besides, giving an air of roominess and space very
acceptable after tbe cooped-up accommodation of
a steamer. I shall not soon forget that meal in
the Hawaiian Hotel at Honolulu. The delight of
getting fresh meat, clean table-cloths, and all the
other blessings of a cleanly civilization, while
shti'. in a room with a glorious view out of
tbe window, after twelve days of gazing at tbe
horizon out of dead lights, and wondering bow far
Bishop & Co j below it the ship was going on her next lurch, are
xi-il t indescribable. These Honolulu people feed luxu-
1 lUA-tOI . , , , . l l l t 1 . .
riousiy, anu nave a goon aiiowieuge oi wuat is
dainty and palatable. The mullet which graced
the breakfast table was fit for Buckingham 1'alace,
and no wonder. The Ilawaiians are very fond of
fish, and prefer it rather alive and kicking than
cooked. A piece of raw mullet is a delicacy
which no Kanaka will resist, and the more lively
bis dinner is, with the greater satisfaction will he
allow the newly-caugbt mullet to gambol inno
cently down his alimentary canal."
His equanimity is somewhat disturbed when he
comes to pay for breakfast :
I tendered a sovereign ; when, to my utter
amazement, tbe change was banded to me as fol
owa : One English sixpence, two American dimes,
two ditto half dimes, one quarter-dollar, a silver
coin of Napoleon III., a Peruvian dollar, and a
Mexican coin of some value indistinguishable.
This was above boiling point. I dashed the money
back, and demanded some one currency or other;
I didn't care what it was, so long as it represented
something definite; but the proprietor coolly re
turned it, with the assurance that it was all current
coin of the realm. There was nothing for it but
to pocket it, in blind ignorance whether the motly
! collection represented ten shillings, or ten pence.
The coinage here in Honolulu is of the most extra
ordinary description, American predominating,
but with a strong dash of English. Mexican. Peru
vian, and French coins ; a combination that utterly
bewilders the unfortunate New Zealander, accus
tomed to use and recognize English money only.
Having pocketed my museum, as I called my une- j
quilled collection oi coins, i went ior a sirou
through the hotel, which well repays tbe time.''
"To make the hotel complete, water, with con
siderable pressure, is laid on everywhere, while it
somewhat surprises a visitor to this out-of-the-way
inland to Gad a gas chandelier in bis room, with
veritable gas burning therein. From the upper
story windows a fair view of Honolulu can be got,
the hotel itself being situated in tbe pleasantest
part ot Jibe town, and within easy walk of the
principal streets and buildings. At present it is
leased by an American, and conducted in excellent
style, and with a luxury which only passengers
just off a fourteen days" voyage in a steamer can
appreciate and enjoy. The only drawback is the
expense, which is considerably above tbat of tbe
best New Zealand hotels; but with economy, tbat
little difficulty can be overcome, and in such a
glorious climate and beautiful scenery, I can im
agine nothing pleasanter than for the passenger
who is not pressed for time, to stay between two
mail steamers, at the Hawaiian Hotel, Honolulu.
Some bave tried the plan, and enjoyed themselves
beyond measure, and at tbe time el our short stay
there, several Araericaus and other tourists were
in the hotel. Any one who wants to idle away a
month, bad better come to Honolulu."

Twentieth Annual Report of Honolulu
Sailors Home Society.
Our Home, under the excellent manap-ernent
of Mr. and Mrs. Dunscombe, has been car
ried forward through another year. It is
confidently believed that the original design
of its establishment has been steadily kept
in mind, and the amount of good accom
plished all which coald reasonably be ex
pected. According to the report of the
manager, three hundred and eight (30S)
seamen from vessels of war and thirty-two
(32) from merchant vessels and whaleships
making a total of three hundred and forty
(340) have found accommodations at the
Home during the past year. There are in
cluded in this number several shipmasters
and officers. Very many of these young
men, besides scores more, bave resorted to
the Reading Koom for writing letters to
their friends; and when they left have been
supplied with reading matter to take to sea,
and in many instances they have received a
word of " good counsel." Much good has
thereby been accomplished.
The Young Men's Christian Association
has, with most commendable and praise
worthy liberality, sustained the Heading
Koom, which has proved beneficial not only
to seamen, but many others. As a means
of usefulness, this branch of Christian benev
olence cannot be overestimated. The Home
and Reading Room are standing witnesses
and manifest proofs of the Christian liberal
ity and kindly feeling of the foreign com
munity of Honolulu towards seamen and
strangers visiting this city. The following
testimonial of the commander of H. B. M.'s
S. Catnilton, is in harmony with the verbal
remarks of many others :
II M. Snip " Cameleox,"
Honolulu, August 18, 1874. J
Dear Sir : Before leaving this port, I beg to offer
my testimony to the very efficient working of the
most useful institution, "Tbe Honolulu Sailors'
Home." During the Camtlton'i stay here the ship's
company have fully availed themselves of the many
advantages it offers tbem, and I am sure joins with
me in thanking you and tbe other gentlemen, through
whose exertions the establishment retains its high
character for the comfort and attentions they have
always met with in the house.
I shall have much pleasure in bringing the Home
to the notice of any captains of ships visiting this
part of the world, and shall not fail to express the
high opinion I entertain of its merits.
Believe me, dear eir, very faithfully yours,
The Iter. S. C. Damon.
The Treasurer will report the amount of
our expenditures. I he verandas and cook
house have been thoroughly repaired during
the past year, and much work was done for
a small amount of money. Ihe Home
needs repainting, and it is to be hoped the
means will soon be obtained for doing the
same. Let it be remembered that nearly
ten years have elapsed since any public ap
peal has been made for funds to carry on

Flitner's Transit Instrument.
In the year 1S45 Mr. E. H. Boardman,
watchmaker, established a transit instrument
in Honolulu, to assist in the work of rating
chronometers. The instrument, imported
for the purpose, was expensive, and the ar
rangements most ample. Subsequently it
became the property of D. N. Flitner, who
has been so successful as "chronometer,
watch and clock maker," during the past
quarter of a century and more in Honolulu.
Mr. Flitner's long experience as a practical
astronomer and observer enabled him to
make observations during the late " transit
of Venus," which have attracted the atten
tion of Capt. Tupman, and which this gen
tleman has done our townsman the honor of
duly recognizing. This fact should not pass
without its impression upon the minds of
shipmasters and navigators in the Pacific,
who desire to keep their chronometers in
good repair and properly rated.
In this connection we would add that the
longitude and latitude, which has been au
thority with Mr. Flitner during his residence
in Honolulu, was obtained by Professor C.
S. Lyman, now of Yale College, who visited
Honolulu in 1S4G shortly after Mr. Board
man established his transit instrument. Pro
fessor Lyman employed this instrument, or
rather he finally adjusted this instrument
accurately to the meridian of Honolulu, and
determined the latitude and longitude by ob
serving the culmination of several hundred
stars. We well remember the many days
and weeks that Prof. Lyman was employed
in determining the latitude and longitude,
as follows :
Longitude west 157 48' 45" Latitude north 21
18' 23". At 12 o'clock, M., Honolulu.
This instrument is situated on Union
street near Hotel, and is mounted upon a
foundation based upon the coral rock and
made as solid as cement and granite could
make it. The little building sheltering the
same was designed by R. A. S. Wood, Esq.,
for many years superintendent of govern
ment works, and designed to be modeled
after a Grecian temple. Small as it may
be, the plans and drawings were sketched
with as much labor and painstaking as any
building ever erected on the Hawaiian Islands.
f rccmiDeurfy entitles her.
Trince Alfred, the Doke of Edinburgh, will pro
bably succeed the reigning Duke of Ssxe-Coburg-Gotha,
as tbat monarch is childless and Alfred is
beir-at-Iaw. It is therefore possible that the little
prince just born may yet Le a ruler, though a petty
one, in Europe. There is no telling how soon Bis
marck may gobble Saxe-Coburg-Goths, however.
The Methodist Ministers in Boston, in Convention
at Wesleyan Hall, resolved to support none but a
prohibitionist for Governor " hailing with satisfac
tion the advent of a Governor in Massachusetts who
is not mortgaged to the rum shops," and pledging
their best efforts to secure the return of Hon. Thomas
Talbot to the Gubernatorial chair. Tbe Convention
was addressed by Revs. Joshua Gill, Mark Trafton,
Dr. Thayer, V. A. Cooper, C. N. Smith. Dr. Ela and
others. Mark Trafton in alluding to party politics,
said " You will never make any progress in this
great cause until every man and woman with politi
cal and moral influence steps square out and says :
AVe are here. If you want our help come to us.' "
A writer of newspaper gossip is now trying to
throw light after the manner of Harriet Beecher
Stowe in tbe case of Lord and Lady Byron upon
the difficulties which arose between Charles Dic'cens
and his wife. It is known to the world that they
were estranged, and, for some years before the great
author's death, lived apart. The statement is now
made, that in 1S59 be became enamored of a young
actress a Miss Ellen Ternan a fresh, pleasant
looking girl, not especially pretty, but possessing a
good figure and an extremely agreeable manner." It
is alleged that they fell violently in love with each
other; though it is added that the affection of Mr.
Dickens was " purely platonic." The circumstance i
of his procuring a bracelet for his youthful charmer
containing his likeness and a lock of his hair came
to the knowledge of his wife, and led to the estrange
ment which sfterward ensued. Mrs. Dickens did
not go to the world with the story of her troubles,
but retired to a pretty little house in the vicinity of
Regent's Fark, where she has continued to reside,
enjoying the respect of all who are favored with her
