that tb British bsrk Processor Airey, from Cardiff, arrived at
that port on tha 13th, reports that while in Brazilian waters,
laUtl7 Wo., long 3d 3 01' W, a distance or ISO miles off
. the coast, running at the rate of 2 miles an hour, the bark
grounded on a shoal, not down on the charts. Alter an hour's
detention he got off without notable damage. Sounding, he
had only 17 feet of water, and at a little distance from the
ship found no bottom with CO fathoms. Ou sounding again,
the line was cat, losing the lead, whereby he supposed it to be
a coral bank, heretofore unknown. The Peruvian Minister of
War and Marine communicates this Intelligence for the benefit
of navigator generally.

Letter from London.
Loxdox, Dec 13, 1873.
Probably Rear Admiral George Hancock will be
nominated fyr the Tacific CommanJ, as Admiral
Cochrane' time expires next Jane. I am enabled
to gie yoa the following particulars in regard to
the moTements of Britiah men-of-war, well known at
Honolulu. The Repulse Is expected to be at
Acapulco at the end of the year. . The Ttntdot is on
the coast cf Chili- The Challenger reached Val
paraiso Not. 19. The Fanlome has orders to IeaTe
Panama in March next, and proceed to Honolulu in
order to relief e the Myrmidon, which returns to
British Columbia. The Pelertl comes home tia
Valparaiso and Coquimbo. The Blanche has arrived
in the Medway after an eight years cruise in the
Pacific, during which she Tiaited nearly all the
groups- A matter for the serious consideration of
the British Admiralty is the numerous desertions
from men-of-war on the Pacific Station. It appears
that the Repulse, is orer one hundred men short of
her complement, and that since this ship left Eogland
in July 1872 nearly new crew has been sent out at
different times to make up for the desertions. The
Tenedot with only 119 seamen anl marines has lost
fifty-fite. and other teasels in proportion, so that the
total number of desertions from English war ships
on the Pacific during the last three years can not be
far from fire hundred. Little Hawaii with a popula
tion of only 57,000 will occupy the same area at the
Centennial Exhibition (3888 sq. feet) as Jenwim,
with over one million inhabitants, Hayti (372.0OO)
and Honduras (332,000), while Liberia with 718,000
will fill still less room. Ka Moi still lies at Im
chester, where she went Not. lGth, to repair the
damages arising from the collision reported in my
i m these Islands.

yaH a vi.-it to C'ar.tain I to and offiwrs of th
J.tpar.ic corvette Tsuhula Kan, on board that
fillip, which wa drcsel fL.r tl.e occasion. The
King was received witb manned yards, and a
royal saluto was fired on Lis departure.
The Gazdle of this week, in commenting on
the fact that our exports are reported in the an
nual statistics to Lave bvvo in excess of imports
to the amount of Si4,0S5, makes the fallacious
deduction that, " The Kingdom, according to this
statement, has added half a million to its re
sources and capital daring 1875."
The EiccESTiox has been made, and we under
stand will be acted on by the government, to ap
point a number of Lonorary Commissioners to
the Centennial Exhibition. We hear of several
of our prominent residents as purposing to visit
the United States during the next six months,
the nomination of whom to the positions indi
cated, while it 6hould prove advantageous to
Hawaiian interests abroad, would afford to the
persona thus honored a semi-official status that
will be desirable.
O.ve or tue greatest leaks of the public ser
vice, in some countries, is in the system pursued
in procuring euppliesof goods or material needed
for government purposes. It has become a pro
verb that governments in matters of bargain and
sale, are liable to be worse cheated than anybody
elee, and whenever a government contract is given
out the general thought is that it is a "job,"
out of which the lucky one who gets it is to
make money and get the advantage of the em
ployer. It is notorious that the American gener
al government and city corporations have been
served thus, to an enormous extent, and it is a
sad commentary on public morals to have to ad
mit the prevalence of the sentiment, acted out if
not avowed, that it is no 6in to cheat government.
In Europe however, long experience has resulted
in rigid sy6teiu in these matters, whereby cheat
ing the government is comparatively rare. There
is certainly no good reason, either moral or prac
tical, why a government should not be as cheaply
and honestly served when it goes to market as a
private individual. And tho likeliest way in
which to secure such a result would seem to bo
the plan followed in England and to some extent
in the United States of late, in procuring sup
plies or work done for purely government pur
poses, that is, to invariably advertise for tenders.
In this way the chances for getting unfair prices
out of the public purse are rendered small, and
government is better served every way, whilo no
accusation of favoritism can arise when every
thing to be bought or sold is oflered to compe
tition. The amount of money annually expended
by the Hawaiian government for the purpoecB
here indicated is quite large, in proportion to the
revenue, and it may be very pertinently asked
whether the economic plan should not be adopted
here of advertising for tenders for supplies for
support of prisoners, the leper asylum, the mil
itary, etc., etc.
With tue increased solicitude which has be
come eo manifest of late in the foreign commu
nity for the preservation and recuperation of the
Hawaiian people, there is also to be noticed a
growing conviction in the minds of the think
ing friends of the race that the causes of sudden
death among them are too little inquired into. A
coroner's inquest or a post mortem examination,
except in cases of known murder, are rare inci
dents in these islands, whereas in other countries
they are the rule instead of the exception. Nota
bly is this so in the Australian colonies, where
as we read in the public prints about every case
of sudden death is investigated by a coroner's
jury and the same may be said of the practice
in California. In theso islands, however, we
frequently hear of apparently healthy people
generally natives dying quite suddenly and
being expeditiously put out of 6ight without the
slightest inquiry made by the authorities as to
how or by what means they came to their end.
One day during the past week there died
within a Ehort distance of this office, a pretty
young native woman, who the day before was
apparently in robust health. No inquiry what
ever was officially made as to the cause of death.
But it transpired that she had been enceinte, and
hints were dropped that an abortionist had been
employed. Of course it is not known how much
of truth there may have been in the latter rumor,
but we are told it is a fact that the woman died
after prematurely giving birth to a dead infant.
Here was a young and healthy female, who had
she lived might have become the mother of a
numerous offspring, thus ultimately cut off.
Surely it was worth the trouble of an investiga
tion to 6how whether or not this valuable life
had been sacrificed to foul play. It is a fair cori
elusion that, 60 long as wc continue to dispense
with coroner's inquests, those pests the native
kahunas will continue their murderous work
among the people, unpunished and unobstructed.
As an evidence of public spirit and a good
movement in the direction of enhancing the at
tractions .of Honolulu as a place of resort for
travellers we are pleased to note the inception of
a new enterprise, to be known as the " Kapiolani
Tark and Fair Ground Association." The Asso-,
ciation is to consist of two hundred subscribers,
at fifty dollars each. 1 The location of the pro
posed Park is some 200 acres of land, mostly
belonging to the crown, extending from tho base
of Diamond Head towards Waikiki, and from the
6ca beach inland, a level tract, and forming al
together a most advantageous site for a public
park, including a race course, and beach-lots for
cottages or bathing boxes. The park will be
about thirty minutes drive from the Post-office,
and when it is improved as contemplated, with
trees and shrubbery and roads laid out, wc shall
have a desideratum the need of which has long
been apparent a pleasant resort, during the
summer months, and not too far from town. We
understand that arrangements have been made
with the proper authorities for a thirty years
lease of the ground, and that aa soon as the re
quired number of subscribers have been enrolled
a meeting will be called with a view to organiza
tion and the immediate commencement of opera
tions. In the meantime the Provisional Com
mittee have suggested the name of the Queen of
Hawaii nei as a fitting title for the new park.
Mr. A. Herbert, at the Hawaiian Hotel, is secre
tary pro tern, of the Association, and is ready to
afford any further information as to the new en
terprise, and to receive the names of subscribers.
Cuakity. The calls which are made upon our
community to contribute something " for sweet char
ity's sake" are neither few nor far between ; and
to our credit it should be said such calls generally
meet with a prompt response. The last appeal was
on behalf of the native families burned oat by the
fire on the premises of the Minister of the Interior,
when not far from 300 was contributed.

THE METRIC SYSTEM.
Tl.e ctandard of the metric jft'in is the metre,
which iti length is equal to 33..J7U7D inche ; it
is the ten millionth part uf a quadrant of the
earth's meridian, or the distance from the
equator tct the yAi-s. The system is decimal,
and all denominations increase or decrease uni
formly by ten, instead of according to the older
and arbitrary n;cthod with its varying scale,
siil! in common use.
The unit of linear measurement of Great Britain
and the United State- is identical, and is the yard
of 3C inches. The jard is determined from a pendu
lum vibrating seconds cf time in a vacuum at the
latitude of London and at the level of the sea.
The standard yard is a brass rod, made at the
temperature of 2 - of the Fahreinheit thermo
meter. Should the standard yard ever be lost, it
could be again recovered by resorting to the same
experiment from which it was originally derived.
The measure of weight and capacity is derived
from the standard in the following manner : A
cubic inch of distilled water, weighed in air at a
temperature of 62 Fahreinheit with the barom
eter at 30 inches, is equal to 252 grains nearly :
5,700 of these grains are equal to one troy pound,
and 7,000 to one pound avoirdupois. For capa
city we have the gallon, equal to 277,274 cubic
inches of distilled water, which weighs lOlbs
avoirdupois. The U. S. gallon is 231 cubic in
cheg, and weighs 8,339 pounds avoirdupois. Thus
we see that between the British gallon and that
of the United States there is a difference of nearly
two pounds, and so with other measures. These
discrepancies often cause considerable embarrass
ment ii trade, by the complex calculations they
involve in their reduction from one to the other,
and the great desideratum now looked for by in
telligent people ia some plan whereby uniformity,
simplicity and scientific precision may be ob
tained ; and in the metric system, if it is once
universally adopted, all these indications will be
fulfilled. Although used in France prior to the
year 1840, it was then made compulsory, and
has since been made so in other important coun
tries. It was legalized in England in the year
18C4 ; in the United States in 1866 ; and in Ger
many in 1863 ; and is destined ere long, with
intelligence and progress, to become of universal
The plea sometimes uttered against its adop
tion in certain countries, that it would create con
fusion, can no longer be held as valid, as, to be
singular in this respect, will hereafter be the
very cause of that against which the cry is ut
tered. With us who really have no standard of
our own, but derive our scale of measure from that
of other countries, it will be particularly to our
interest to keep pace with them in this direction.
Wo would not advise that the metric system
be made compulsory, but that it be legalized, as
it has been in Great Britain and the United
States, until by familiarity with its use we have
become sufficiently convinced of its benefits as to
render such compulsion desirable. It is very
probable that its full adoption will be accom
plished in the United States within the present
year ; as the leading scientists and artizans are
very generally agreed an to the desirability of
such a project. The American Metrological
Society has lately issued a circular urging the full
adoption of the system nfter July 4th. 1876 ; this
circular is signed by tho loading architects, engi
neers, and scientists of Clio country.
Not long since, tho committee on " Uniformity
of Weights and Coins, ia the interest of Science,"
at a meeting of the Bxitinh Association, submit
ted their report to tho Society, therein urging in
the strongest terms, tho fall and legal introduc
tion of the mctrio Bysteiu in Great Britain and all
her colonies. Especial stress was laid upon the
actual necessity of adopting some system of inter
national uniformity in coinage and postal weights,
and it waa strongly ur2d by the committee (as
it had also been by tho Royal Commission) that
another international Congress be speedily held
to consider the sclieiao. The system had been
tried with great bucccsb in India, and efforts had
been made to procure its adoption in the colonies.
Chambers of Agriculture and Commerce, (includ
ing the Barnstable Farmers' Club) had petitioned
Parliament in favor of a uniform system of
weights and measures.
It will be seen by the foregoing statements,
that the French system of weights and measures
is rapidly becoming popular among the intelli
gent of all countries. For those who may be
ignorant of the subject, we will briefly consider
its nature, and the language of its various de
nominations. As before stated, the metre is the
unit or base of the whole system and ia the only
arbitrary one it contains ; from this, aa a stan
dard, all other weights and measures are by com
parison derived, every step being taken regularly
by the scale of ten, and therefore noted decimally.
The names of the higher denominations are
formed by prefixing the different units with the
Greek numerals, dec'a, hec'to, kiPo, and myr'ia,
denoting respectively, 10, 100, 1000, 10,000 ; as
dec'amcter, hec'tomcter, kil'ometer, myr'iameter.
The names of the lower denominations are
formed by prefixing to the units the Latin numerals,
dec's, cenUi and milli, which are respectively 1-10,
1-100, 1-1000 ; as decimeter, centimeter, and mil
limeter. When once this brief and simple no
menclature is learned, tho difficulties of the
metric system will have vanished, aa then our
computations are mado by multiplying or dividing
by ten. As the senate is the unit of our measure
of area, so is the arc the unit of the same in
metric calculations, and ia equal to a square de
cimeter and contains 100 square meters. The
measure of capacity and weight is derived from
the linear unit as follows : A cubic centimeter of
distilled water at its maximum density, at the
temperature of 39.5 Fahrenheit, is the unit of
weights, and ia called a gramme, which is divided
decimally above and below. A cubic decimetre
is called a litre, and is the unit of the measure of
capacity, and is divided in the same manner.
The following is a comparison of weights and
measures : One pound avoirdupois is equal to
453.25 gramme; an ounce to 28.328 gramme,
and a drachm to 1.77 gramme. In liquid meas
ure the French and United States are compared
as follows : The millilitre is equal to 16.23
minims, or .0610 cubic inches ; the centilitre to
2.70 drachms or .6103 cubic inches ; the decilitre
to 3.38 fl. ounces or 6.102 cubic inches ; the litre
is a little more than a quart of United States
measure, and the decalitre a fraction over 2j gal
lons, so that a gallon would be nearly half a litre.
A Resident of Honolulu visiting Maui tbus
speaks of the scenery :
"Never dawned a more beautiful morning than
this upoD the slopes of llalcakala. Early a belt
of snow white clouds lay along the mountain side
from Ulupalakua to Ptiuaeneau, and stretched into
tho Koolau woods. When the sua was fairly up
over the hills so that the light struck down across
plains and vallies from mountain top to the cane
fields of Mdkawao. that snowy girdle shonu with a
splendor brighter than any coronal that ever decked
a monarch's Crown. Mountains are Kings, and
llaleakala U one of the grandest. I never tire of
watching it by day or iiieht. The play of the sun
light over its " rock-ribbed " peaks and grassy
dells is beautiful ; and the piling up of the storm
clouds like the battlements of contending armies
upon its summit is sublime. One feel9 lifted nearer
to God on the Mouutains. I tell you I love old
llaleakala. I glory in these ancient forests with
their hanging vines and moss covered branches
that have battled for age9 with the elements. If
they could only speak what a story they would
tell. I am going to the forest to-day, and 1 wish
you were here to go with me. What a high time
we would have.
