THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS ARE
noted the world over for their unrivaled salubrity of
climate. Certain localities in the group are espec
ially favored in this way. The District of Kona, cn
the leeward side of Hawaii, has long been famed as a place of
resort for invalids with bronchital, or lung diseases. With its
pure and mild atmosphere, with its absolute freedom from
storms or high winds, with its porous soil which, with all its
rich vegetation, retains no dampness and yields no malaria, and
with an oo varying temperature that of the American or
Southern European June ALL THE YEAR ROUND, the
climate of Kona is one of the healthiest and most luxurious on
Tbe undersigned, at ins nouse at naawaioa.a boose une-
qualed in the district for size, cleanliness, commodiousness,
and thoroughness of furnishing, is prepared to give boarders
excellent rooms ana ail obtainable comforts in the way of diet,
THERE ARE FRESH WATER BATHS
on the premises, and fine sea bathing within a ahort distance.
The sUamer Kilauea and the schooners I'ilama and Prince, run
regularly between Honolulu and tbe Kaawaloa landing.
Tbe undersigned employs no agents nor runners. His house
speaks for itself upon inspection. A.A.TODD.

Ne.w Stylk Windmill. Mr. J. Ilolk, wheel-
Wright on I be esplanade, ba completed and
erected a new style of windmill, which is well
worthy tbe attention of those who wish to irrigate
land from wells. The peculiarity consists in an
arrangement whereby the fans, pump and all may
be turned with a change of wind without the
necessity of any one going aloft.
Rosf. vs. Rose. A suit for separation and ali
mony under the above title has been ia progress
before Mr. Justice Judd during tbe past fortnight,
aud bus attracted considerable interest, both on
account of the parties being well known and from
the fact that able counsel were employed on both
sides, J. M. Davidson, Esq. for tbe petitioner and
His Ex. A. S. Hartwell for the respondent. A de
cision will be reached, it is expected, this morn-
i Amkkicjk Relikf Find. This very useful insti
tution ia not in as flourishing circumstances as we
could wish and as it ought to be. The report of
the Treasurer, A. J. Cartwright, Esq., at tbe an
nual meeting held on tbe 22d inet., shows that the
entire receipts for tbe year were $1163.96, of
which $795.75 had been expended in relief, and
$7 for expenses, leaving a balance of $361.21 ou
hand. There are four persons now receiving re
lief Irom the fund, to tbe amount of 19,40 per
week in the aggregate. The annual subscription
to the fund is only six dollars, and it is hoped that
American citizens throughout the islands will take
this as a per.-onal appeal to them to come up to
the help of this worthy charity the American
uk Volcano. Tbe Kilauea on Sunday brought
very exciting accounts of a fresh and appar-
mtly large outbreak of Madam Pele on Mauna
Loa, and quite a number of excursionists took pas
sage on Tuesday to inspect the seventh wonder of
the world. The light was first seen from Hilo on
the night of tbe 14th, apparently in tbe old pit
crater of Mokuaweoweo, and the opinion was ex
pressed by some tbat there was a flow of lava on
the west side of Mauna Loa. The schooners Prince
and Annie, which arrived from Kona and Kau
during tbe week, do not however report any erup
tion, and it may prove that tbe fire is confined to
the summit crater. -
Bark Iolam. This new vessel, which arrived
Newcastle-on-Tyne on Thursday last is a fine
ipecimen of naval architecture of 862 tons register,
itaunch and strong as wood and iron can make
ter, and withal very handsomely put together.
fner cabin accommodations are very ample, and
the ornamental wood-work is really splendid,
equal in design and finish to that of a first-class
passenger ship, while the accommodations for the
crew, in a bouse on deck, are roomy, airy and
clean to a degree that would satisfy tbe greatest
stickler for " sailor's rights." She was built near
Bremen ia 1876, for her owners, Messrs. II. Hack
feld Co., for the Pacific trade, and bails from
Honolulu. She will, after discharging cargo, pro
ceed hence to San Francisco to partly load with
wheat, returning here to finish loading for Europe.
Dcrixo the night from Monday to Tuesday, what
may be supposed to have been! the last Kona storm
of the season, took leave of Honolulu in quite an
amiable way. The streets had received during the
night a refreshing sprinkling of rain which laid th
dust for several days, and hardened the streets for
good traveling; a few awnings having served for a
long while their purposes, (one of which belonged
to the "Old Corner." Mr. Nolte's) were rather
rudely torn from their plsces and purloined by th
storm ; tbe crop of young mangoes received a judi
cious thinning out; and altogether the kona acted in
a very lovely manner. We are now entering upon
the season when we may expect a daily advance in
temperature and perhaps drought, and when the
days come in which the lean and tbe bony rejoice
with a malicious grin over the fat. How we shall
sigh for another kona. Tbe stormy night was fol
lowed by a beautiful morning, such as only can be
found here. Tbe wind came from the northward as
cool aud soft and delicious as a virgin's breath, and
the harbor, whero but a few hoar before the waves
dashed against the wharves and the sides cf tbe
coasters and ships in rude shocks, looked as smooth
and placid, toying with tbe beams of the sun as be
rose over the mountains, as if no storm had ever
ruffled its surface. The vessels, large and small,
three-masted and one-masted, bad all their sails
hobted for drying, as if rejoicing to be freed from
the long blockade of southerly winds, and indeed
the harbor presented an unusually bright appearance.
The unlucky schooner tbat had been nearly twice
drowned and twice resuscitated, was towed to the
ship-yard looking as saucy as when she started on
her ill-fated trip. Tbe new schooner Catarina lsid
at the wharf, taking on board freight for ber first
voyage on ber regular route to the landing places on
the other side of this island. Painted white and ber
new coat shining in the sun as bright as new paint
could make her, with ber neat sails hoisted up, she
looked indeed the little queen of our island fleet
Her broad beam promises ample accommodations,
and tbe ease and grace with which she sat cn tha
water with a full load on board, gave ample evidence
that she never can be over-loaded. After a few tarns
in the harbor to show herself, like a very coquette,
started off on her first voyage, and we have no hesi
tation in predicting that she will play her part well
in the future home-trade of Oabq.

Paring the last two weeks there wer nine drunks.
which taking into consideration tbe three days Chi
nese New Year's celebration, speaks well for tbe
balaaoe , t bad giu still a band and the good'
arrav of drunks and fines still in abeyance. Fod'f
arrests were made for fast riding, tbe fines for which
were 810.00 and coats. Kaubiaahioa (k.) was ar
rested fur malicious injury on complaint cf Captain
Crane. . K. bad seriously felt the inconvenience tt
loading coal for tbe Lahaina plantation in large
bags. The coal appeared to be harder than Li
shoulders, and tbe filled, bags were too heavy to
make tbe exercise of loading pleasant, there fort fvl-
lowing a very natural course of reasoning, no bags.
no coal in bags, K. pitched some 200 empty bags
overboard oa the return trip of the .Vft, but the
reasoning being considered cot admissible by His
Honor he was fined $15.00 or one month's bard
Luis, Chinese without a tail and an ever smiling
bappy face, had been arrested with a Leg of nails on
bis shoulders. He indignantly denied having stolen
tbe nails, but cheerfully admitted tbat be bad taken
tbem from Lewsrs & Dickson's lumber yard for bis
private nse, as be intends some day to build a bouse
for himself at Walala. the place to which be intend
ed to travel iifb the keg of nails oa bis back. He
is tbe same individual who some tlove ago stole two
heavy lumps of coal, carried tbem sluog over bis
shoulders all around the island of )ahu and brought
them safe back to Honolulu. A harmless lunatic, ha
was sent for one month to the prison to keep bim
onto? barm. Hoopil, arrested for stealing $C50. 00
in cash front Maikai, plead guilty after a few days
lodging in the cell. Some of tbe money was recov
ered buried on Punchbowl bill, but as the case is
not ended we shall refer to it in our next.
Ali, a Celestial, was arrested and tried for mali
cious injury on complaint of J. I. Dowsett, Esq. Ali
said that be bad driven out of an unfenced field, be
longing to another individual of the Celestial breed,
an ox with immense born, several times, when the
ox with the big horns made for bim and be defended
himself , with a plantation hoe. The truth however
was not ia Ali, and the ox with immense horns was
in reality an old gentle muley milch cow without the
least sign of a born, tbe only horns that All might
have seen being perhaps bis own tail swinging in bis
excitement around , Lis bead, and tbe self defence
consisted ia burying a beavy and sharp plantation
boe, to which the bair still adhered, three times into
the poor beast below tbe hip. All was to our great
regret sentenced to only two months imprisonment
We regret that His Honor did not call it six months.
and we most earnestly hope tbat in every case of
wanton cruelty to poor beasts tbe Court will insist
on the 'full extent of tbe law. ' Kaikona (w.) bad
been arrested for deserting ber Celestial husband,
and returned with bim hand in hand. - This desert
ing Caktlial husbands by native women is becoming
a very frequent offence, and we begin to entertain
the opinion that there is something not sufficiently
distinct In the marriage service. We 'would most
disinterestedly advise tbat the words " and cling to
your husband" be changed into tbe words "and
cling, to your husband' tail," rSS something mora
distinct, specific and easily to be understood by the
native mind, as the Celestial husbands as a general
ity are rather lean and slippery, wearing clothes
rnuoh too wide for a woman to cling to under provo
cations to slide.
Sam Kunikahi, gross cheat, sent to Supreme
Court Along, Celestial, fined $75.00 and costs for
furnishing liquor to natives. Aloi, Ahoi, Afoi,
Ayong or Allrong, Awai or Awry were arrested for
affray and two of the, party were fined $10.00 eaofa.
but the Celestial names made such a profound con
fusion that it is doubtful if Aloi is Afoi or Ahoi or
AH wrong. '' perhaps the contending parties were
fined, perhaps the witnesses or lookers on. Hard to
Me. Editor: There baa lately been an attempt
apparently to make the delivery of mail matter and
newspapers an offence against the observance of th
Sabbath. I could not well sar whether the Saddu.
cees, or tbe Scribes, or tbe Pharisees, had any thing
to do with it, but to come to a correct decision of
this- very serious and grave matter, it appears (0
me the best plan to follow tbe practice cf lawyers
and look for precedents, and if no precedents can
be found to let the matter rest, until a precedes t is
Neither tbe book of Genesis, nor Exodus, nor tbe
Song of Soloraon, says aoy thing aboat tbe Post'
office Department of the olden, very olden time
indeed, and it may therefore be concluded that a
Postmaster or Postmaster-General, mail-rider and
mail bags, are creatures created a long while after
fish and fowl and the creatares cf tbe sea were
made. Furthermore, ilia convincing proof tbalMose
bad no Poet-office established for bis correspondence
itb Pharaoh, or for the correspondence cf bis people
with the Egyptians, a bo undoubtedly held a vast
amount of slow notes for the borrowed gold and silver,
which the departing Israelites forgot to pay for.
It is also a tact tolerably well established that
Solomon had nominated no Post master in the
City of Jerusalem, otherwise from (be beavy cor.
respondence which tbe wise King must have car
ried on with his numerous wives and sweethearts.
undoubtedly a few would by this time have beep
found in the excavation where the Post office
building might have been situated, aa every one
is aware that however highly love letters may be
valued by tbe respective parlies, Post masters wt
mighty little value cn tbem. The historian
Josepbus also totally ignores the Post office of
Jerusalem, but perhaps if it existed the Scribes
and Pharisees did not call for their letters, checks
or exchanges on toe tabbaifr : day, and waited
patiently until the Postmaster General opened bis
delivery window at tbe third Lour cf the next day;
but as it is but natural and really human to sup
pose tbat the Scribes ant Pharisees of Jerusalem
were as anxious to get their mail matter and
qews papers from Rome and Babylon and Ninr.
veh as those of Honolulu, I propose to let th
matter rest and go on as usual until a precedent
establishes a law.
