NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Scuab Tlantation Sold. We hear that the
Mesre. Hitchcock Bros, have purchased the Kaiwik1
Plantation, at Hilo, for the sum of SI 5,000.
The Kilalea it is anuounced will lay up for re
pairs from the 17th to 28th inst., going to Kauai on
tbe latter date and to windward on the 31st. i
The last Mmnra rv Haw it to the rumor of
which we alluded last week wss more properly a
case of manslaughter, a woman having died in con
sequence of a. beating from her paramour. The
man was intoxicated at the time, and was taken to
Hilo for trial.
Bcsiness on Lanai. By an
arrival from the
wool-growing island of our friend W
we learn that one day during last week, three ves
sels were lying at anchor in the harbor of Awalua,
busily engaged, the Kamaile in loading wool, the
Warwick in discharging freight for the ranch, and
the Kaviolani in loading sheep. This looks like
The people of Hilo gave to His Majesty a most
loyal reception on his arrival there on the 30th of
April. A fleet of double canoes, elaborately deco
rated in the ancient style, escorted him to the shore.
The street was strewn with rushes from the landing
to the entrance of Capt. T. Spencer's residence,
where the King stayed. On the 1st inst, His Maj
esty addressed the people.
An Esthetic Thief. One night during the past
week, the front enclosure of a residence on Alakea
street was entered by some person, who quietly and
carefully proceeded to dig up and transplant into a
flower-pot, a fine Gardenia plant, about ready to
flower. The fact of the flower-pot is evidenced by
the mark in the soil where it stood, while the digging
Scnsuine is the appropriate title of a neatly
printed and sunnily edited " Monthly Magazine for
Young Headers," which comes to us from Santa
Clara, Cal. It is full of original articles and good
reading for the juveniles, and its price is only 1.00
a year. For Mollie Simonds and Estelle Hammond,
the editors (or editresses?) whom our fancy pic
tures as young and pretty of course, we wish all
the pleasures and none of the bother and vexation
of journalistic life.
Tueatbicals. A San Francisco letter tc the
Idandtr says :
' I learn that the next steamer will take the
Wheeler and De Glorion Combination Troupe to the
Colonies, and it is possible they may give a per
formance at Honolulu. Tbe Lingards are also re
ported aa moving Australia-ward shortly, and Ma
dame Ristori, the celebrated Tragedienne, supported
by a company of twenty-eight persons. In the
event of time allowing a performance by this latter
company, while en route, the people of Honolulu
will enjoy a rare treat."
A Patent ArPLiED tor. We were shown last
Tuesday, by the inventor, Mr. Jos. S. Gurney, the
model of an "Improved Tobacco Cutting Machine,"
whereby the process of reducing ordiuary plug
tobacco to the consistency required by pipe smokers,
is wouderfully facilitated and expedited. A " hand"
of tobacco is " chawed up" by this machine in less
time than it requires to write this sentence. The
model, which is a very neat piece of workmanship,
together with the proper documents official and
otherwise went forward on the Legal Tender on
Wednesday, and the patent from the United States
government will be obtained through the noted firm
of Munn & Co., New York.
Get a Prospectus. The speculation in mining
stocks in California in these days is in many respects
comparable to the stock gambling of Wall street in
New York. Rash and unskillful manipulators cf
the market are often badly bitten, aud some who
to-day believed themselves wealthy are to-morrow
utterly rained, by the sudden fluctuations in prices
of stocks. But we have before us a "Prospectus" of a
company tbe "New England Tunnel and Smelting
Co." an association formed for tha purpose of mi
ning and reducing ores in the Mineral King mining
district, Tulare county, Cal., that seems to us to be
place 1 on such a basis and to be governed by such
circumstances and conditions, that its stock is not
liable to become the subject of wild speculation.
The capital stock ia ? 500,000, diviJei into 00,000
parts cf $5 each, and the shares are unassessable.
Farther information may be obtained cf Mr. C. S.
Bartow, auctioneer, of this city.

very pleasant occasion cf this sort was witnessed on

Williams, at KulaLkahus, when tie anniversary cf
the birthday of his eldest son wat observed by the
unexpected irruption of friends and neighbors, and
the iuiprov-sation by the young folks of a dance.
The entertainment of the " Gleaners," at Buf
fum's Hall, last evening, drew a crowded house and
may be pronounced a decided success. Time and
space forbids a more extended notice ; but we are
requested to state on behalf of the Society that they
are uuder many obligations to the ladies atd gentle

Everett, the Sheriff of Maui, on the road from La
haina to Wailuku met a man leading a horse packed
with two bags, one ou each aide. Inquiring as to the
contents, the answer was, food for sale in Lahaina.
Mr. Everett however examined for himself and found
a demijohn of okolthao in each bag, which there and
then he poured out on the thirsty ground.
Tue Shortest Passages. The very creditable
time of 7 days and 16 hours from Honolulu to San
Francisco, made by the .Mikado on her last trip, is
not the shortest ever made between the two ports.
The .Xebruska, of the Webb line, has repeatedly
beaten it. as follows : In May, 1871, from San
Francisco to Honolulu, 7 days and 12 hours; in
April, 1872, from Honolulu to San Francisco, 7 days
and 9 hours; in January, 1872, from San Francisco
to Honolulu, 7 days and 6 hours. She also made
the passage from Honolulu to Auckland in 14 days
and 1 hour, and from Auckland to Sydney in 4 days
and 11 hours beating the Hero 16 hours.
Emferor William and his right-hand man are re
ported to be in a etato of huge dissatisfaction in
regard to King Alfonso's administration of Spanish
affairs thus far. It is but natural that Bismarck
and his sovereign should regard with disapprobation
the pronounced clerical and ultramontane leanings
of Alfonso's Ministry. The suppression of the Pro
testaut papers of Madrid, the raising of the rev
enues of the clergy to the exteut of over seven mil
lions of dollars, and the denial of freedom of
worship, are measures which could not fail to prove
distasteful to the German government, which seems
to be willing, in the prosecution of its deliberately
chosen policy, to assume the position of the champion
of Trotestant ideas.
J It will be remembered that, some time since there
vas an exhibition of tableaux, music, &c, at the
yilotel for the benefit of the organ fund of the Bethel.

that ice is plenty, the ladies propose to have the ice

x Was it a Burglar ? A report beinc iu circulation."
yesterday morning that an attempt had been made'
the previous Alight to make a forcible entry at the
Custom Ilousi we " interviewed " the native police
man whose bett is in that part of the city, and were
informed as follows : About 9 o'clock in the evening
a solitary horseman no, pedestrian was seen by
the argus-eyed police (who was squatted down by the
fountain on Hackfeld & Co's. corner) to come to the
opposite corner and stand for several minutes, and
then to walk down towards the Esplanade. Follow
ing him, the policeman lost sight of his man just this
side of the Custom House. Standing there a few
moments, a noise was heard in the back yard of that
building, like one shaking a door. Police, thinking
that he could not very well surround the burglar
alone, goes to a house on Robinson's wharf and sends
a messenger for another policeman. Second police
man, coming down accompanied by a number of out
siders, goes to the steamship wharf and blows his
whistle lustily, and soon after one of the spectators
shouts " There he runs !" when somebody is seen
running as if for a prize, and disappears in the neigh
borhood of the Widemann house. That's all there is
of the story; and it is'nt much of a story either.
BlROLABT AND TUE BURGLARS CAUGHT. Last
Saturday night the store and dwelling of Ahuna, a
Chinese retailer of dry goods, etc., on Nuuanu street,
was entered by burglars. A person was asleep in
tbe upper part of the building and some time past
midnight was awakened by some one in the room,
who on being spoken to jumped out cf an open
window to the ground, a distance of some ten or
more feet, and escaped. On examination it was
found that two eJ.ver watches and other small mat
ters, and some $150 in money was missing. The
thief in his haste had however left his hat in the
room, and as it was well known, he was arrested the
next day, together with another, believed to have
been his accomplice in the affair. The classical
names to jvhicb the two Celestials answer are, Tun
Cum Sin and Hy you see Fat. The day after the
above burglary, by a mere accident, a discovery was
made on the premises occupied by Sin above named,
that throws a little light upon the recent burglary of
Dillingham's store. Under the floor of Sin's house
was found an old tin vessel, in which were three ten
dollar silver certificates, (probably a part of the
Saturday night's booty) and near the pot was a
brace and bit, a chisel, and an ordiuary screw-driver.
On the s ock of the brace were the drippings from a
candle, and the bit was found to correspond in size,
etc., to the holes made on the Dillingham premises.
The screw-driver fits exactly into the marks made in
trying to pry cpen the money drawers. These cir
cumstances (and so far but little e!sev- appear to
connect Siu with the burglary in question, in which
it will be remembered that entrance was effected by
boriog through the boarding of the roof, and when
candles were freely used by the burglar in the store.
These two Chinamen are a part of a lot of discharged
contract laborers from Tahiti, who arrived here some
time ago, and Sin particularly, bears a bad character
among his countrymen. The examination in the
Police Court has been remanded until Monday next
A lady writing from Paris to the St. Louis Globe
eays that some of the French think that Beecher is
the editor of the Tribune, and that the Tribune is a
religious paper; others, that Tilton was the adopted
son of the preacher, who had reared him, from a
foundling: some, that Mrj. Beeiher was Tilton's first
wife, and', haviog been divorced, he married the
present Mrs. Tilton, and Beecher took the divoroed
woman; others, that exposure might have been
avoided by the pastor marrying Mrs. Tilton and Til

Mb. Editor : Walking up Nuuanu street the
other day, when near Beretania, my ears were sa
luted by the strains of martial music and I saw a crowd
of natives gathered. On inquiry I learned that the i
occasion was a serenade to a native lady of hih
rank by the band attached to the German war ship, j
Well, you will ask. what is there wrong in tbat
Nothing, perhaj.8, so far as our German f.ieuds of
the Arcona were concerned; tut there are consider
ations connected with the matter which made me
regret to see the demonstration, and further I regret
ted to hear that a foreign official residing here was
presumably the cause of its having taken place. Ia
view of the recent if not now existing condition cf
political feeling aruoug the uative people, it was to
say the least, bad taste all around excepting, as be
fore, the officers of the ship, who are supposed to
know nothing of our domestic heart-burnings. The
eflect upon the minds of the natives, a considerable
proportion of whom are ignorant and easily misled,
is what is to be deprecated. After the mischief and
subsequent misery that was witnessed some fifteen
months ago resulting from the influence cf mistaken
political views in the direction which I have indi
cated, iCso-ms to me that we cannot be too careful
to avoid anything which may, however remotely,
serve to keep alive or rekindle the embers of party
feeling. To any one who is not pretty conversant
with the native character, it will be astonishing
what preposterous theoretical structures they wil1
raise on so slight a foundation as the occasion to
which I have alluded. The story, with all its grow
iog embellishments, passes from lip to lip, all over
the islands, and the effect, it is easy to understand,
is not salutary. A. B. C.
To the Editor of the Pacific Coinmerci'il Advertiser :
Sir. I desire through your columns to direct
public attention, and that of the Minister of the
Interior particularly, to the bad and unsafe condition
of the Nuuanu valley road, above the cemetery. We
are in the habit of boasting of our beautiful Nuuanu
Avenue; and truly it is a fine piece of road until the
above mentioned point is passed, when it besomes
narrow and crooked, and, worse still, has on one
side a yawning gulch, an open grave for the horse,
carriage and driver who at an unlucky moment, day
or night, may by the force of circumstances be una
ble to avoid it. It is a water course, the sides of
which are in places four or five feet deep, down to
the black volcanio sand. At some points the water
is tunneling under the road, which after a few more
rainstorms will cease to be a carriag!-road and be
come a bridle-path merely. As it stands tow, that
part of the Nuuanu road is a disgrace to the country,
and to the Government whose duty it is, particulaily
in a section so thickly populated as this valley, to
provide the people who pay taxes with safe and
ample roadways. This is neither safe nor ample,
and will soon be altogether insufficient. I apprehend
there would be no possible use in directing the atten
tion of the Road Supervisor to the subject, and I
therefore beg through your columns to invite His
Excellency she Minister of the Interior to drive up
the valley and personally inspect the road at the,
pruntA which I have mentioned, when I feel satisfied
that he will concede that some steps in the way of
prevention if not of cure, are necessary to be taken
at once. TaxPater.
Mr. Editor : I had thought this progressive
community was a little slow to take the spelling
school fever, when in a visit down town yesterday, I
learned that such an affair was now under way. For
it to be a success we grown people must be willing to
spell. I am for one, although expecting to be very
soon "spelled down," and to see the scholars of
Punahou, the Royal and other schools holding the
floor out to the small end of the match. A consent
to be one of the spellers should not be taken for a
boast of one's accomplishment in the art, and a miss
should not create mortification Some of the misses
will be ridiculous, and many persons who spell well
enough all they arc required to in their correspond
ence, will suddenly fail under the new conditions o
a spelling class.
. What shall be the rule of correctness ? It should
be observed that we are not in the position of schol
ars who have learned the lesson from the book which
is used in putting the words, and who must be con
sidered to miss if they vary from that authority,
although correct according to another standard. Tbe
spellers here spell from their general knowledge.
Different American authorities differ from each other
and from the English. Spelling in conformity with
any authority should not be reckoned mistake.
What words are to be put out such as are in use
in ordinary writing and reading, or is the dictionary
to be searched for monstrosities? Evidently failures
on the latter sort of words will not impugn any per
son's skill in spelling. May not the spellers claim
at least this, that tbe meaning of unusual words be
given on demand, and where the word has the same
sound but a different meaning dependent on its
spelling, or on the. context, that such meaning be
If prizes of books are offered, should there net be
liberty to exchange at the book-sellers for any other
work of the same price? This suggestion is made to
relieve the prize taker from the necessity of receiv
ing another Webster's or Worcester's Unabridgixl, as
that speller probably owns a copy.
I wish that persons to whom the English language
is a foreign and acquired tongue might consent to
enter the lists. Learning tbe language ia the thor
ough way our German citizens do, it would not be
surprising if some of them spelled down many a
These spelling schools should tot be regarded as
puerile. They will afford better amusement than an
average t beat re (or theater) and will turn the atten
tion of the adult community to a review of first prin
ciples that may be profitable.
The Trial-Trip of the Bessemer Steamship.
The Betsemer steamship, which was to abolish the
horrors of the Channel, has been tried, and is, 1 fear,
only a half success for the present. She steamed
this week from Hull to Gravesend in a gale of wind
and proved an excellent sea boat and fist. Her two
faults appear to be an excess of draft, and tbe un
steadiness of her moveable saloon. The former is
partly accounted for by an extra supply of coal, and
may be got rid of in one way or another must be
got rid of before she can enter Calais on an ordinary
tide. As to the saloon, it appears that the machinery
intended to control it, and to neutralize, so far as it
is concerned, the movement cf the etip, i3 in some
way defective. The saloon can be handled with ease,
but cannot be kept stiil; in other word?, shares tho
motion of the ship. What we know about it is mostly
from a letter written to the Times by Lord Henry
Leunox, who came in the ship, aud who explains that
the present trouble arises partly from some wrong
arrangement of the levers, and partly from the inex
perience of the man who works them. He and Mr.
Reel believe, or at least hope, that all may be made
right, but the public is just a little incredulous. But
whether the saloon prove perfectly stable or not, the
ship will be a vast improvement over those now in
use. London, Cor. AVw York Trbunt.

Jones is now- one of the largest stockholders in tb

Ben. Butler, ex-Congressman from the district of
E-sex, in Massachusetts, has written a letter In reply
to enquiries as to the exact scope cf the famous
Civil Rights Act. Among other questions asked was
this: "Whether colored men are entitled to the
privileges of saloons?" To this Mr. Butler answers :
" I understand by ' saloon ' you mean drinking
saloons, and am hppy to say that the Civil Rights
Bill does not give any right to a colored man to go
into a drinking saloon without tbe leave of the pro
prietor, and am very glad that it does cot. I am
willing to concede, as a friend to the colored man,
that tbe white race may have at least this or.e supe
rior privilege to the colored man, that they can drink
in bar-rooms and saloons, and I never shall do any
thing to interfere with the exercise of that high and
distinctive privilege. I 'voulJ not advocate a bill
which should give that right to the colort-1 roan. If
I were to vote for any bill on this subject at all, it
would be one to keep the colored man oat of tbe
drinking saloons; and I hope no barkeeper will ever
let a colored man Lava a glass of liquor at anj bar
open for drinkiog. Indeed, I should be glad, when
ever a colore 1 man should go Into a drinking saloon
for the purpose of drinking at tLe h; if somebody
would at once take him and put him out of it, doing
him as little Injury as possible. He could do the.
COlc-rad mast no greater kindness."
