digcrert'd a cur for tbat dreadful disorder. It
can:iU in getting up every morning at 5 o'clock
aid walkinz to the top of Punch-bowl hill ! He
gives a glowing description of the sceaery tbat the
eye roams over from that elevated position ; "peaks
in rapturous terms of the health-giving air of eurly
morn ; of the b.'autit'H of the sunrise ; of the appe
tite for breakfa.'t when you get back ; etc., etc,
t-. t... t... k. ir;. i!
iw--.iir.tir.n nw ......h of ike raTin tLat de-
bouchea from Punch bowl is being walled up. and
will be cemented, wiib a view to forming a soil of,
natural cistern iu which nill be collected and re-
tained the min water that (alls in rainy seasons, toj
be used in dry limes for irrigating the trees and;
shrubs in the summit park. This i.h a plan which,
is extensively followed in India, and with much
Kaonaites. The story comes from Hawaii tbat a
body of natives, men and womenwho were adher
ents of Kaona in 1868 when Richard Neville, the
Sheriff of Kona, was killed by that party has
recently demanded that the possession of the Congre
gational Church building at Lanihau, in Kona, be
" divided " with them. It is barely possible that
the Kaonaites," in view of the fact that their
leader spent some years in prison, will again become
Native Whiskt. A letter to the native paper
Lahui Hawaii says : " Spirituous drinks are openly
old on the road on this island. At Makawao, in
the shops okolthao can be bought for from 25 cts. to
iialf a dollar a bottle, aud it is carried about for
vale from bouse to house " Oo the other hand, a
letter which we hive seen from one of he deputy
Sheriffs of Maui declares that there is no known
distillation in Haua, Kaupo. or Kipahulu, and that
drunkenness is uncommon in those distrio's. He
bad not however visited Makawao.
That the late John Mit:hell was tried for being a
Fenian agitator and sentenced to Norfolk Island;
aud that he was a friend of the oppressed; are items
of news g'eaoed from the late Gazette. We had been
under the impression that Mitchell was a Chartist, and
that be was transported years before Fesianism was
beard of. A specimen'of his friendship for the op
pressed was afforded when, after escaping to Amer
ica from Australia, he patronized African slavery
and boasted of the pleasure be ft-li in owning a
plantation and a gang of negroes in Alabama.
Good Templars Akmversart. A pleasant re
union of the members of the order and a large gath
ering of ladies and gentlemen who take an inter
est in its objects, was bad on Saturday evening last,
t the Hall of "Ultima Thule" Lodge No. 1, the
occasion being the celebration of the 6th anniversary
of the establishment of Good Templarism in these
Islands. 4 Two of the original charter members were
present Judge. W. -Claude Jones and Mr. Jones
of Maui. Tftere was some excellent singing, perti
nent speeches from prominent citizens, ice-cream.
cake and lemonade, and dancing till eleven o'clock.
piT The following respecting the habitat, etc.J
ol several members of the family of Eucalyptus
which are becoming common here, is furnished by
Mr. Charles Derby, the botanist :
Eucalyptus Amygdalioa ; smooth stem ; broad
leaves ; springy, forest glens ; height 400 feet.
Eucalyptas Obliqua ; stringy bark ; (rery large
tree ;) will grow in very poor soil.
Eucalyptus Marginata ; Jarrab,. or Australian
Mahogany ; grows mostly iu iron-stone ranges.
Eucalyptus Rostrata ; (river flats) Red gum ;
Eucalyptus Goniocalyx ; a large tree ; common
Eucalyptus Cornnta ; a large tree of quick
growth, thriving best in moist loam.
Eucalyptus Fissilis ; will grow iu poor soil.
Eucalyptus Cn-bra ; (narrow-leaved iron-bark)
one of the best fur this latitude ; common soil.
Eucalyptus Calophylla ; umbrageous : grows
either in alluvial soil or on stony ranges.
A Case of Desertion. Quite a sensation was cre
ated about the region of Queen street on Wednesday
afternoon, growing out of the departure for San
Francisco per brig J. B. Ford, of Captain A. A.
Powers, who has been for some time past master of
the Kahului packet Ifamoi. Captain Powers has a
native (half-caste) wife and two small children.
While the brig was sailing out of the harbor, the wife
was seen to ran to the end of the Esplanade and
jaajp overboard. Oa being taken out of the water
by a boatman, she raised an outcry that her husband
was deserting his family and leaving the country
without providing for their support. After some de
lay a warrant was issued on the complaint of Mrs.
Powers, and an officer dispatohed in a boat to serve
t, but the brig was well out of the harbor by that
time, and with a good breeze was beyond pursuit by
the boat, which soon returned from its fruitless
errand. It soon transpired that daring the morning
Captain Towers had sold bis house and lot near the
Government House for $1,600, the wife being in
duced to join in the deed on the supposition that the
family were to remove to Maui. As it is, she and her
two very small children are said to be left penniless.
There are stories rife of domestic trouble and scandal
which has caused this sud lea breaking up of a family
until recently so apparently happy, and the self-exile
in a discreputable way, of a well-to-do resident. It
is pretty evident that somebody has sinned grievously.
Since the discovery of the great " bonanza,"
stock gambling has spread among industrial clashes
of San. Franciaco. like a contagion, and they are
withdrawing their deposits from the savings banks
to a large extent. One servant girl drew out
$670 and lost it in a week.
Mr. Bagehot, the well-known English publicist?
has an article, in the London Economist, in which
be calls attention to the significance attached to
the recent election of a leader, by the British Li
berals. The action taken, in this instance, is an
innovation upon British customs, and resolves it
self into a republican proceeding, including, as it
does, the nomination of the next premier, when
ever the Liberals come into poA-er. This formal
choosing of a party leader is really the adoption
by the British Liberals of the American conven
tion system. Thus Mr, Bagehot holds ; although
we have seen a statement tbat Earl Granville
would, in the event indicated, be asked to form the
government. Even in this case the election of the
Marquis of Hartington, as the opposition leader in
the boose of eommona, is not deprived entirely of
its republican significance.

To Vit l Jvr i-f&t raciAc Comnktrciai AJftrtisrr:
Iea The GaztUt &f this week has mad an
attack upon rue as the other of an article in the
Lahui ju-ju cf list veek. If the Gtzttit had
published a translation of the sH article, I would
hve not cn'y made no reply, but would have re
joiced tbat the truth was toll. Now, Mr. Editor,
what is the truth in this matter? It is that do Us
waiisn woman, married or unmarried, in llonolala,
is safe from being seiied without warrant, without
knowing who her accusers are or whether there are
any, except the suspicions of the I know- cot Lis
proper title fur doing such fiendish work, being
harried to the Queen's Hospital, and there to un
dergo an examination repulsive to every feeling of
virtue and self-respect " W. F. L." says, with a
sneer, " the writer's blood boils over." Let hira put
himself in the ..lace of many of the young men of
Ilonclula, whose wives and married sisters are told
by this exemplary examintr of Harlot, " that their
being married made no difference, Jtc . not to cry;
that it was he mea maikai." It is easy for th men
who draw fat salaries for doing the dirty work to see
the beauties of this system, which is fast turning oar
city into a Sodom. The police of the town have
washed their hands of this iniquity, as did the late
Minister cf the Interior, F. W. Hutchison.
A train. W. F. L." asks "Are we to infer that
outrages like the one mentioned are of nvery day oc
currence?" Are we to wait till married womeaare
outraetd ererv da before the people are to bo
aroused to the subject T Tyrants mad Oppressors all
over the world cry down the men tbat tell the truth.
W. F. L ' tfefs nof, can vot, deny the facta related
in the Lahui Hawaii. If ha knows as much as I do,
he knows that the tenth part of the truth has never
been told; he knows tbat there art women in Oahu
jail to-day, committed for thirty days without war
rant, without trial, without an opportunity to prove
their innocence, because they shrank from the exam
ination of the Doctor. o long as these men have it
: .L: ... - A tkn. i;tro ik Him llawai.
.;Aian women, there will be no-end to lewd women in
I r streets, to whom these men say go, sin with
I v .
impunity; instead of the blessed words of our Sav
iour " Go and sin no more."
M Is it juducious advice to natives" to tell them to
ask the King and Queen to protect their wives and
sisters from those who would consign them to lives of
infamy T Is it a trifling or infantile grievance " to
the women of Honolulu that they are subject to im
prisonment and degradation? W. F. L." "may
think so, but no true friend of this nation does.
Yours truly, J. Porter Green.
A Gift Revoked.
Last July. James Lick, the San Francisco million
aire, executed a deed of trust making over an im
mense property, estimated at $5,000,000, to seren
trustees nominated by himself, to be applied to phi
lanthropic purposes. Says the S. F. Chroniclt
" His benefaction was projected upon a scale of al
most unparalleled magnificence; and the fact that be
consecrated the bulk of his vast fortune to this grand
scheme of philanthropy daring his lifetime, instead
of postponing its execution till the hour when be was
about to cross the threshold of that world into which
the millionaire can carry no more than the beggar,
clothed the act with a luster which belongs to no
death-bed -bequest. Meantime, the fruit of James
Lick's philanthropy bad made the circuit of the globe.
In every civilized nation of the earth paeans went up
to the great California n philanthropist, whose benefi
cence had quite eclipsed the fame of the Cornells, the
Vassars, and the Peabodys. His country and his
State shared in the credit and renown of his unpar
alleled bounty." .' 1
On the 27th of last month, the community of San
Francisco was startled by the announcement that
Mr. Lick had filed in the Recorder's office a revoca
tion of the great deed cf trust. This unexpected and
singular act excited all kinds of comment. "If"
says the Chronicle k" he now revokes the act which
has givenhioi so conspicuous a nloho lo the temple of
fame, his country and his State will in like manner
share the disgrace and humiliation of bis repentance.
There is reason to believe that the grand and noble
act whioh he now seeks to nullify was the inspiration
of his own mind, while the afterthought was the re
sult of. the appeals and importunities of interested
parties and their paid agents. 'It is rumored that for
weeks and months Mr. Lick has been besieged by
lawyers employed by those to whom his vast wealth
would descend in case his large philanthropic plans
could be frustrated. To men animated by sordid
aims and eager to appropriate his immense fortune,
the disposition which he made of the bulk of it natu
rally seemed an act of personal wrong and outrage.
They could not be expected to sympathize with pro
jects of benevolence which would benefit an entire
people at their individual expense. While he, by pa
tient industry, sagacious business tact and self-denying
frugality was accumulating a colossal fortune, a
swarm of relatives were waiting anxiously expectant
for his death as the happy moment that should enable
them to revel in his wealth. The intelligence of the
grand philanthropic act which promised to win for
the plain and homely name of James Lick an immor
tality of fame filled these hungary expectants with
disappointment and alarm, and they at once com
menced bringing to Lear upon him every influence in
their power to induce him to reconsider his act. We
are not yet prepared to believe that Mr. Lick has, in
the free and uninfluenced exercise of his own will
determined to revoke his deed. We trust. for his own
good name and fame in the future, that he will shake
himself free from the-selfish and sordid infiaeneesby
which he is surrounded and reassert his original in
tent." It is stated that the trustees under the deed are ad
vised by eminent counsel that Mr. Lick has no legal
power to revoke his solemn act. It is their intention
to contest his attempt at revocation upon the ground
that rights in the public have become fixed and vested
under the original deed. In this determination we
think they are right. It seems clearly to be their
duty to test the question of Mr. Lick's power of rev
ocation, since they represent the public and not them
selves. But it is sincerely to be hoped that the case
will never be permitted to come before a legal tribo.
nal for adjudication. There is something in the idea
of bringing such a question before a Court of law
which is unalterably repugnant to all the finer feel
ings mere delicate sensibilities of our nature.
California has not been fortunate in ber philanthro
pists. The late Horace Hawes once U. S. Consul at
Tahiti, and afterwards a resident of Honolulu hav
ing amassed great wealth in San Francisco, wanted
to found a great educational institution, to be called
the " Monteagle University." At least he persuaded
himself -that he wanted to de this." But his ingrained
love of money, and of the power which money car
ries with it, was so deeply rooted iu his nature that
he could n4jnake Up his mind to place his wealth
beyond his control until the moment when death was
about to wrench it from his grasp. The consequence
was that the benevolent enterprise suggested by his
tardy philanthropy was frustrated by bis procrasti
nation, and his immense estate went to his widow
whom he hatel in his lifetime and to his son, a boy
at school. ...
Letters from Sydney from persons engaged in the
upholstery business complain seriously of the bad
condition in which much of the pulu received from
Honolulu conn to hand. Says one writer : "Of
late it has been quite a practice to send pulu to this
market in anything but good condition ; if the bales
are not wet in the centre, t iej have all more or less
of black sand and stones. This practice of
unfairly packing of pulu, if continued, will shortly
drive it out or this market, where it was beginning
to gain a footing. Since the opening of the San
Francisco Mail Line I have Imported over 500 biles,
and on an average it has lost five pounds per bale -with
the exception of some brands. In the lawsuit
recently tried here of Newton and others vs. Cluney,
the mate of the Retort Cowan testified that he had
been employed for tea years atr-ne of the pula sta
tions, racking crtea pulu : and be also stated tbat
when packed green It loses one poood in fite in
weight. Already several heaves here, who used to
keep a stock cf pulu oa hand, are refusing to buy
aDy more, as it constantly loses in weight, and will
only toy as they get orders for teds." The follow

The plaintiffs in this case were Christopher New.

Mr. Butler. Q. C . aod Mr. Simpson, instruoled by
Messrs. Purott aod Tnakett. appeared fur the plain
tiffs; Mr. Salomons, instructed by Messrs. Stephen
and Stephen, for tbe defcnJaat.
The action was brought for dasaart to eeftain pula
shipped on board the defendant's vessel at Honalula
for Sydney. Tbe first count or toe declaration was
for not deliverin: according to the terms cf the bill
of lading, tbe second for want of proper care in
stowage of the cargo. The defendant denied the
agreement; alleged, denied having received the goods
oo the terms alleged, denied tha alleged breaches of
tbe agreement, and said that tbe damage bad arisen
from lb excepted causes and perils. The first and
last defense were, however, practically abandoned,
and the substantial ground of defense insisted on
was that the damage to the pula arose from its state
when shipped at Honolulu, and was not caused in
any way by the act of the carriers. Tbe question
aroe whether such a defense was available under tbe
particular pleas in this action,' Mr. Salomons contend
ing that the third plea denying any breach of the
agreement in the bill of lading, wet this esse ; while
it was argued open the other aide that a special plea
was necessary. His Honor decided that the defense
could be cone into upon the record as it stood. The
carcunataeeea of tbe case were as folio ws. In Decern
ber, 1874; 123 bales of pulu wero shipped at Hono
lulu to Sydney, to the order or Messrs. V. Newton
and Co-the plaintiffs. In the bill of lading, the only
perils excepted were " tbe dangers of tbe seas, and
the usual olause " pot accountable for leakage, break
age, &C.,"W9S not Inserted. Tbe result of the ac
tion would. seem to show that it is unnecessary. The
weight of tbe pnlu was stated in the niargia to be
14,241 lbs., but tbe words " weight and contents un
known," appeared in the body of the bill of lading.
Besides the 123 balsa of tulu,"he cargo consisted of
40 other bales of . the same material, some kegs of
sugar, bags of rice, and casks of oil. On smval at
Sydney, it was found that nearly every bale of Messrs.
Newton's consignment was seriously dawaged. The
wrappers were decayed, and the lashings so rotten
that the bales could not be lifted by them. Conse
quently, as soon as bulk was broken the wrappers of
tbe bales burst, and the pula protruded. ibe4U
bales which were sworn to have been stowed promis
cuously with the 123 bales were not damaged in tbe
least, and were delivered in perfect order. For the
plaintiff, Mr. Lamb (of Bradley, Newton, and Lamb),
Captain Moodie, Mr. Cewlisbaw, and Mr. James Cole
man were called as witnesses. They deposed to the
state of the cargo on arrival at Sydney, and attribu
ted tbe damage to improper stowage, and the contact
of tbe oil and sugar casks. None of them saw tbe
cargo until after bulk had been broken. Tbey des
cribed the damage to the pulu as consisting entirely
in the injury to the wrappers, and st ited that the
material itself appeared quite dry and good ; If the
packages were broken pulu would not be merohanta
ble, even if not further damaged. ' None of these
witnesses examined tbe interior of tbe bales. Tbe
defendant's witnesses admitted the extent of the dam
age, but ascribed it to the wet state of tbe pulu when
it was shipped. They all spoke to the fact of the
bales being wet inside while tbe outside was quite
dry ; -the captain and mate swore that there was a
practice in Honolulu of not drying tbe pulu in order
to keep op its weight; and several people in the trade
in Sydney gave their opinion from the appearance of
the pulu tbat the damage was caused by its wetness
when shipped. Evidence was given, that tbe cargo
was properly stowed and well dunnaged, both by the
captain and mate and also by Captain Sustenance
and Mr. Lntge, who examined the cargo both before
and after bulk was broken.
After the speeches of counsel, and His Honor i
summing up, the jury returned a verdict for the
On tbe eve of his leaving congress, Genert.l Butler
has been " Interviewed," by a correspondent of tbe
New York Graphic and has given his views with
entire freedom and something of precision. As he
closes his'political career temporarily, at least
he closes none of his truculency. His radicalism
is shorn of none of its proportions. lie is partic
ularly enamored of the provisions of tho force bill
for the passage of which, in the bouse, he not un
justly takes to himself a great deal of credit. He
makes, however, this significant admission : ' None
of those who claim to bo tho leaders or organs of
the house are found. voitng (on the force bill) with
the Republican majority." He further says that
the bill was parsed against tbe opinion of tbe
Republican newspapers. These facts would cause
an ordinary man to stop, for a moment and
reflict, whether the men of the greatest ability and
worth upon the floor of the bouse and tbe journals
of tbe largest influence and tboughtfiilness might
not be right after all, and himself in tbe wrong:
but General Butler does not allow LIm-elf to ex
press such a query, even though he may, in his soul,
acknowlege its propriety. He goes straight on to
defend the bill, as the only guarantee against an
other civil war into which he thinks we are rapidly
drifting. He baa the same terrible vision as that
which the straining ejes of tbe Kentucky edit
beold. . . . . -.'
The General hopes, indeed, that he is needlessly
alarmed, but to him there has been no darker day,
since be left Washington in 18C0 to go home to Mass
achusetts'and advise'Governor Andrew to put the
militia of Massachusetts upon a war footing. He
saw tbe danger then from seeing the temper of tbe
southern men not the southern statesmen. He
sees it now thrcsgh the same medium. Thea fol
lows a dissertation, true enough, upon civil con
vulsions. He says : " Domestic wars are never
planned. All hiatory shows that nations drift into
them, against tbe better judgment of tbe sober and
right-thinking men of both contending factions.
And it is only my trust in an overruling Providence,
in favor of tbe destiny of this country, tbat gives
me substantial hope now. And I yet hope, above
all things, that my forebodings arc unfounded and
unsubstantial." The eminent piety of the general
is so well known, tbat we should be terribly a
larmcd, did not bis confidence in Providence re-assure
that we may also hope, with him, that the des
tiny of tbe country (whatever that is, iu his voca
bulary) may preserve us from tbe ills he fears.
It does not seem once to occur to tbe general
that this very force bill, of which be is so vehement
a champion,. may in itself be made the pretext
of the war be apprehends. He is one of that class of
statesmt-r who would do every thing to irritate, and
then "wonder tLat the irritation, himself provokes
causes inflammation. The general sees war ahead
in Arkansas, in Louisiana, iu Miseissppi and in
Washington itself, when tha electoral votes come
to be counted. There is no need to combat the
general's gloomy prophecies. They may become
fact, or they may not. Certaiuly, tbey will n.ot be
falsified, through any efforts of his. Notwithstand
ing his discliamer, he is doing what he can to make
them facts. It is nut through prudent statesman
ship that we are called upon to fear a renewed con
flict of tbe north and south. The wLiie-leagu'efs of
tbe one section and the extremists of tbe other may
precipitate it ; and we knw fcf no one who, in such
a case, would hare a greater measure of responsi
bility for its occurrence than this same demagogue,
whoso assiduously fans the fire of bate.
The general devotes the conclusion of bis conver
sation with the correspondent to a defence of the
telegraph bill, to a wish tbat there maj be an extra
session of congress, that the Democrats may commit
political suicide, and to vain regrets over tbe tepeal
of the moiety law. And with this last good word
for his fritfnd Jayne, the Essex statesman closes his
lips, having stated in a comparatively short Inter
view, about as many anti-Republican ideas, as
would be possible in the time at his disposal. To
day he retires from public life. Can the republic
