A paragraph in this week's Gaztlte seems
deserving of a passing notice, for its tone of reck
less vituperation, uncivility and disloyalty. Our
allusion to development" was intended as a joke;
but some minds are to constituted that anything
humorous makes no more impression on them than
water poured upon a duck's back except perhaps
to excite an unreasoning ire. Our contemporary,
though a Hawaiian subject, very plainly and boast
ingly declares that be is not a royalist; and such
being the ease, he certainly is not in sympathy
with the government under which he lives. Here
after whenever he shall make a display of his sup
positions loyalty to the King, let this confession
of his disloyalty be remembered.
Scsdat Eyexixo service in the Episcopalian
Church of Honolulu was conducted with all the
turgic effect and imposing ceremonial of old En
gland, on last Sabbath," when we had the grace
lo be present as one of the congregation. The
jiacred edifice, as a cathedral, can not compare with
'similar structures elsewhere ; but the piety of the
j worshippers makes up for the unpretending aspect
of the temple, so we thought, as we witnessed
the., devotions."; The choral . chant . was solemn
and harmonious. A sermon was eloquently preach
ed by one of the cathedral clergy, the Episcopalian
ToTTB'ishop of Honolulu. Dr. Willis, presiding.
Disastrous Floods is New Zealand. The
steamer of Thursday last brought full particulars of
the. destruction of property by floods in February
last in Southern New Zealand. Tbe total loss in
sheep, cattle, . crops, houses,' and lands rendered
useless, is estimated at not far from 100,000.
We regret to learn that the farm of our townsman,
Mr. J. E. Earnard, . situated in the Province of
Nelson, has been almost destroyed. Says the Colo
nist "An avalanche of earth, rocks, trees and
water so suddenly struck the bouse and crushed it
that ' Mrs. Barnard and one pf her daughters (Miss
Nellie Barnard) received injuries in endeavoring to
escape;, the. former Laving several of her ribs
broken, but the young lady was not so severely
hurt. Mr. Barnard jr., went for assistance, and
the sufferer after camping out one night on the
hillside, : were gently conveyed on stretchers to
Stanley Brook, where they are being attended to.
Besides the house and its contents being almost
entirely destroyed, the trees in the orchard were
either leveled or buried, and tbe flat land was con
verted into a shingle bed,"
Ax amusing incident, took place here a few
ights ago, in which the " pluck " of our worthy
Marshal of the Hawaiian Kingdom was heroically
displayed. Tbe Marshal was called to see an in
dividual staying in a certain boarding-bouse, who
had threatened to shoot any one who dared to enter
his room, with an imaginary revolver, for he did
not' possess ' real one. While the manager of the
establishment and other persona present carefully
ke t back, the intrepid Marshal nothing daunted by
thei danger of being shot, went to the door of the
shooting maaV room; and, of course, nothing
happened to him from tha imaginary revolver; but
as khe Marshal did not know, till he entered the
roim that the shooting man" had no revolver at
alj, the Marshal's " pluck " and cool courage in
the discharge of his duty are not the less admirable
and worthy of being recorded. It turned cut that
the Marshal and the " shooting man " were old
acquaintances, and both enjoyed a hearty laugh at
timidity of " mine host ! The gentleman was
suffering from hemorrhage.
The Volcano. A correspondent writing from
Waimea, Hawaii, under date 15th March says:
"I see that in your paper you take the ground
that the light from Mauna Loa was due to activity
in the summit crater of Mokuaweoweo. I am per
fectly certain myself that there was a flow dowu
the side of the mountain, and if I were not other
wise engaged would endeavor to go and Cud it.
Therewai a very faint light from Mokuaweoweo
on the 14th .Febrnary, while the whole blaze that
went up and produced such a fine effect was from
the side of the mountain toward ontb Kona. I
could sDe that it gradually moved down through
tbe night,, and that a heary cloud of sraulio roao
on the succeeding afternoon from near the foot of
the mountain I should judge and tbe upper
edge of tbe great Kona fores:. In the evening,
i. e. twenty-four hours after tbe eruption, there
were several slight shock3 of earthquake, and my
theory is th.it that was the time when the flow
went underground, perhaps ten miles from the

We have received a communication from His
Excellency the Minister of Foreign Affairs, dated
from Ulupalakua, March 25 th, in which that gen
tleman states that the Royal Commissioners intended
to start next day (March 2Cth) for Hamakna and
Koolau, and would probably arrive in Honolulu
about Thursday next. Their Excellencies were con
veyed, on board II. B. M.'s war steamer Fantome,
from Kailua, Hawaii, to Ulupalakua, Maui, frony
which place the communication was forwarded, refers
red to above. A correspondent who accompanied
tbe Royal Commission on the trip through Hama
kna to Hilo, on Hawaii, cays : " They examined
personally nearly all tbe possible landings in Uama

Captain Makee is especially impressed with the
immense capacities of the Hilo district

of the household of Prince Nicholas of Russia.
Tbe lady is said to be an emissary of Trince

Gladstone's notorious leaning towards Russia, in
the present phase of the Eastern Question. The
whole story in got np by a French journalist, and is
too ridiculous to claim credence from any man or

sides on the same dates, 12th and 13th March
the first of the kind in four months. A correspon-.1.-4

"It is sow about four months, since our drAI
reason commenced, daring which time, (up toll
vpsterrlAv we have had about aa manv ahowera i
j jt - -
of rain ; which were so light, and of so short dura
tion as to prove of bnt little benefit to either the
animal, or vegetable kingdom. What with the
heat of the sun, and the strong Northerly and
Southerly winds which have prevailed to any
unusual extent, for the past few months, accom
pained, also, by those fresh mountain breezes,
which have not ceased to pay us their nocturnal
visits, those causes combined, have had a ten
dency to make the faee of our poor Mother Earth,
to wear a somewhat dry and withered aspect ; even
the tough old Ililo grass, has, in many losalities,
been forced to succumb to the unusual state of th
atmosphere. In planting our produce, we have
had the misfortune of seeing some of it go to decay
through the dryness of the soil, other portions
remain as it were stationary, merely giving- evidense
that life is not altogether extinct. It mast there'
fore appear evident, that amidst such a dry state
of affairs, tbe want of water has been very seriously
felt, especially among that class of people who
are not supplied with artificial means for preserving
a supply during the dry season. Many of this
alass afe obliged to go the distance of from three
to five miles,, to procure the greatest of earthly
blessings good drinking water. This, they are
generally sure to. find, by penetrating the belt of
dense, thick forest, which nearly surrounds this
Island, where the hot rays of a tropical sun are
powerless, at least so far as evaporating the moisture
from the earth is concerned. In this case, wa see
the utility of preserving the forest ; it imparts
to mankind a blessing which tbe open and treeless
portion of the country is incapable of affording."
Police Cocrt. Ediaund Bright, who had been
in tbe employ of Clegborn Co., arrested for
stealing goods from the store for the establishment
of an underground retail store, was sentenced to
one year i bard labor and 25 fine. Speculation
turned out not very profitable. Only nine drunks
during the two weeks past. There is tope that
" bad gin " ia not all consumed, and plenty more
on band. Paoa gave a castigation to Liliha (w.),
for gelling her bat less than he had estimated the
value of it, and paid $5 for a lecture on manage
ment of domestic affairs. Hoses Hiram, who drew
blood Jrom the bead of his wabine by striking a
bottle against U, instead of water from a rock,
paid $2 for his experiment. Fvjittka, a medical
man without an M. D., who practiced with colored
water and without a licence, vra fined $15.50.
The arrest of 39 gamblers by surpiise is a feat
perhaps never equaled, and deserves the highest
praise. Every one is aware how well gambling
bells are guarded and bow difficult it is to make
a successful desceut upon them. We referred to
the punishments last week. Keawenui (k.) aQd,
Ailaau (w.) stood before Ills nouor with down
east looks, arrested for tbe third time for loving
very nnicbly but not wi.-ely, and both having been
discharged ftom woiking out a fine by six months
prison labor, and again arrested for the same
offence, this is truly a woeful example of affinity,
and appears to be as near a case of true love as
raock-turtle soup is to genuine turtle. His Honor
after deep consideration came to tbe conclusion
that it is impossible to keep the lovers apart as
long as they are together. We think eo ourselves,
and plead lor the mock-turtles a lenient applica
tion of pepper. They were next day sentenced to
two and three months prison labor. ffainai,
charged with house-breaking and sU-aling $58.50
from Mangero a Japanese, on evidence was sent to
Supreme Court for trial. During tbe few days 12
druDka have come up before the Court, in evidence
that gin is thinner than oil.

To the Editor uf the J'acific Cvtnmercidl A Jitrtiier:
Sib. It Is much to be regretted that you have
occasion to devote your pen and space to advoca
ting a much needed reform io the sanitary condi
tion of our city, but sinoe the occasion docs exist,
and in a form so glaringly prominent, so offensive
to our organs of inhalation so dangerous to the
health of the community, and so disreputable to
Its sense of tolerating poisonous odors I am thank
fall (hat you evince the disposition to do your
part toward correcting the evil, by leading off in
battle against it.
Tbe evil to which you allude in your leading Ed
itorial of the 17th in it. is, unquestionably ths in
evitable result of a grand mistake made soma years
ago in ordering that all privy vaults should be
made some ten or twelve feet deep, in not ordering
at the same time, or since, that it should be the
imperative duty of some one to see that some kind
of deodorizing and disinfecting substances were
used in those now reeking volcanoes of baneful
effluvia abutting upon every ten rods of sidewalk
in the city.
I hoped ia commencing the j ernssl of your article,
to find pointed out there, a remedy : but was dis
appointed in not finding any which seemed to me
practicable in our peculiar circumstances.
A system of sewerage to meet ths case, it strikes
me is out of the question for several apparent
reasons ; the plans adopted by the city of Patis
cannot be made to help us, for reasons quite as
apparent. " "
Unfortunately for Honolulu and the Paris theory,
tbe national crop (kalo) provided by the Almighty
for this peopleneeds do manuring of this kind,
the virgin soil of the country is not likely to induce
its tillers, for some time to come to purchase and
freight 'lo their fields, either for their benefit or
oars, the poisonous substances which in their present
state are so deleterious to the community, and see
bo immediately applicable and inexpensive reauedj
except in the use of the earth closet system or the
enforced use and supervision of deodorizing and
disinfecting agents, and the removal of excremen
titial deposits beyond the reach of offense or harm
from their immediate presence.
Respectfully yours, W. II. J.

Havaxa, Feb. 21. The Vox de Cuba, referring to
President Grant' message and bis statement that
Cuba is tbe only land in which slavery on a Urge
scale exists, says : " In Brazil the Spanish law of
gradual abolition will result in ending slavery in
Cuba earlier than in Brazil If a foreign govern
ment insists that slavery be abolitbed in Brazil while
it exists ia Cuba, then let the Spanish law be ex,
changed for the Brazilian law, tbos making away
with tbe fault-finding and pretexts of other nations,
compelling them to blame Braz.il when blaming
Cuba. Whether under Spanish or Brazilian law
we shall have to pass through a transformation of
the gravest importance. Nobody ignores this, yet
nobody takes provisory steps. We cannot under
stand tbia indifference, on the eolation of which the
future cf the island largely depends. There is no
other country where individual efforts are so strong
and where collective efforts are unknown. Let the
initiative for collective eflort come from some promi
nent planter acting in preliminaries in concert with
others and the authorities, and adopt In time the
proper means looking towards the transformation of
labor. Nothing outside of war is of equal impor
tance to the future of the island as this labor ques
tion now exists.

It taay b reasonably accepted that a Settlement
cf terms for tb San Francisco Mail Bervlo baa

contended should be tb basis cf th arrangement.
Tb New Zealand Coastal Bervlo w bav always
contended was not only a useless wtet cf money,
but also a wast cf tin and a great danger to lb
stability of th service. In faot it destroyed tb
Forbes-Maogregor contract, and, with tb Fiji
branch servic tb sam result would speedily Lavo
settled tbe contract now existing. Now, Fiji, cer
tainly, and Honolulu, at tb option cf tb con
tractors, are to be dropped from lb servic as crls
of call; Auckland is to b iL New ZfeUal port cl
call, tb first for arrivals and tb last for departure
from and to Han Francisco. Tbs sum total cf

portionate sbar cf 10,000 from New fjoutb Wales,
