In the year 834, Gregory IV. removed the feast
from the month of May to the season of its
present celebration, the first day of November.
It is very interesting to contrast the Rev. Editor
of the Friend's account of his visit to Portland in
1849 with the description of that place from the pen
of our recent tourist Rev. Alexander Mackintosh,
whose entertaining narrative is now being published
in this journal. Portland has evidently marched
with giant .strides in those eight and twenty years.

The Moons of Mars. The October number
of the American Journal of Science and Ai ts,
received by last mail, publishes a letter of Pro
fessor Daniel Kirkwood to the Editor, on this
subject. He adverts to the fact that the inner
satellites complete their orbital revolutions ' in
less than a Martial dtty. A day of Mars is 24
hours, 37 minutes 22 seconds and a little less
than of a second of our own lime. Jn 7 hours
and 38 minutes, on orbital revolution Is made by
one of these moons round Mars, or three in less
than a Martial day.
Salmon Ova. By the last mail steamer from
San Francisco, Mr. A. W. Bush of the firm of
Ftiel & Eukb. received a number of thousand
salmon eggs, from Mr. B. B. Redding, one of the
Fi?b commissioners of the State of California (and
also connected with the Central Pacific Railroad.)
These were placed without delay lo a pond at
Ewa, about 14 miles from town, and in a few days
the salmon began to appear, being now entirely
batched, with a very small per centage of lots.
The trout ova, previously sent by Mr. Redding,
was also successfully batched, and the young
strangers have been placed in the stream cf Wai
pahu, where they appear to be thriving. With
the salmon, which as is well known is a deep water
fih. returning annually to its spawning place, it
is proposed, if the experiment turns out a suc
cess, to stock our principal island rivers. The
beneGt that would thus result to the country at
large is too evident lo require any argument, and
the thanks of our people are due to both Mr.
Redding and Mr. Bush for their efforts in this
direction. It will remain for the Legislature at its
next session to pass the necessary law for the pro
tection of imported Gsbes.
Gone to Gras9. In no disrespectful sense do we
make the remark that oar friend Captain E. D.
Crane, for the past eight years the popular master
of the Labaina paoket JYeltie Merrill, has at length
actually gone to grass. He has retired from the sea,
and goes to reside as Manager of Mr. James Camp
bell's estate at Ewa, Oaha. In that quiet sylvan
retreat, in full view of the " sounding tea," sur
rounded by his interesting family, be can enjoy two
consecutive watches below without fear of interrup
tion by hoarse cries of " boom-guy I " laff, you lub
ber, luff ! " or " ready about! "
" Lone has he voysjed o'er the stormy sets)
And what a beart-deligut he tee Is at last,
So many toils, so many dangers past,
To view the port desired, he only knows
Who on the stormy deep for many a day
Hath tost aweary of his ocean way.
And wstch'd all anxious every wind that Mows."
Capt. J. II. Hatfield, well-known in the island coast,
ing trade as a careful and skillful sailor, succeeds
Capt. Crane in the command of the JYtUie Merrill,
a vessel that in the matter of speed and the complete
ness of all her appointments, stands foremost of our
coasting fleet of sailing vessels.
His Majesty's Birth-Dat. At the meeting held

the celebration of the King's birth-day. which occurs

"Rambles in the Old World" appears in the
Friend's monthly issue for November. Those voices
from Rbioeland acquire additional sweetness and at
tractive charm, as they reach us month after month
from the enchanting home of the Syren Lorley. Our
own recollections of a traveler's adventures in the
beauteous Rhenish Valley bring baok dim visions of
lovely maids with golden hair aud soft blue eyes, be
fore whose angelic goodness the seductive witchery of
the mythical enchantress Lorley must fade like an
ignis faluus In the brilliance of the starry galaxy on
high. We believe that the romantic Land of the
Rhine has not lost its reputation in this respect, and
youth is a happy dream of romance.
LAIi, I p. On tfislast tup of tho steamer
Liktlike lo Kauai, wbert off Koloa. another fan
of her screw dropped oflf; -leaving but one, the
other two having been lost on b(T-first circuit of
Hawaii. Iu consequence of being thus crippled,
the Mearner did not arive from Nawiliwili until
after 1 o'clock on Sunday. An order for a new
screw was sent to San Francisco by mail steamer,
and it is expected here by the steamer, of the 12th.
It is hoped that within a week alter tha receipt
of the new screw it will bu In position, and the
Likelihe be enabled to leave for the circuit of
Hawaii. It is hardly necessary to say that the
entire community heartily sympathizes with Mr,
Wilder, the owner of the steamer, in the unfortu
nate aud vexatious " laying up" of our beautiful
and commodious '-inter-island bridge," which
is thus rendered imperative.
A vert Daniel. Recently in the court of one
of the District Justices on the Island of Kauai,
two Chinamen were brought up on a warrant
charging them with selling intoxicating drink to
natives. On the day set for trial the prosecution
asked and obtained a postponement till next day
on account of the absence of material witnesses.
When the case was called on the succeeding day,
native counsel for th; defense asked for the dis
charge of his clients, on the ground that the
warrant of arrest required their attendance on a
certain day and hour, and that they could not be
legally tried on any other day. The learned
judge (also a native) after a short deliberation,
decided that the exception was well taken and
ordered the discharge of the prisoners. " O wise
judge! a very Daniel, come to judgment !"
The ise of obacene language and the practice
of profane swearing are highly reprehensible, aud
should not be tolerated in any christian commu
nity. In some countries, as in Great Britain, fines
and imprisonment are the penalties inflicted upon
culprits, who are guilty of using obscene or pro
fane language. In this country, there is a sad
habit of profane cursing and swearing, and using
filthy language ; and while our authorities are
giving effect to other laws which by desuetude hava
been considered as dead letters, we beg to call at
tention to Sectiou 3 of Chap. 24 of the Renal Code,
which reads an follows : " Whoever, having arrived
at the age of discretion, profanely curses or swear',
shall be punished by a fine from one to six dol
lars ; but no prosecution for such offence shall be
sustained, unless it shall be commenced within
thirty days after the commission of the offence."
I. a slbsf.ql'ENT issue we propoie to publish some
extracts from a most interesting article in Harper's
Monthly for October entitled, " From Brusa to Con
stantinople" where the intelligent American trav.
eler who writes, gives some very useful information
about Turkey and Turks, which we advise all those
who are blindly prejudiced against the Ozmaunlees
to peruse for their own enlightenment. This re
markable writer justly admits: "But It is only fair
to the Turks to allow them credit for the reforms
they have attempted to accomplish, and for the fact
that if some of these, reforms Lad depended upon the
fanaticism of the native Christians, little would have
been done in this direction." four and a quarter
penturles ago almost, the Cbrimian nations of West
ern Europe allowed Constantinople to fall beneath
the Ottoman Scimetar, without striking a blow to
save the intolerant Greek Empire of the Est. The
same fanatical spirit now animates those Eastern
Christians, as in tho day when the last Paleologus
died In the ruins of his empire as this enlightened
American magazinist most correctly observes.
Political Fouehaiowi.vgh. The following ap
pears to be a foreshadowing of the European com.
plications which our reports by last mall point to,
as the probable resuit of the prolongation of the
Hr4sso-Tuikib war : An alliance between RusMa,
the I'rueso Germanic Empire and Italy; a rupture
with Austria; a war of restoration in Italy with
Spanish aid againet Victor Emanuel; an uUeuipt
to restore the French Empire by a fusion of Impe
rialists and Hoyalixts, which If successful, will be
followed by a war a toU outiance against the
PrusKO-Germattlc power; neutrality of the Catholic
German States; on attack by Holland and Den-
j mark on the Prusso-Gerroanic Empire; an attempt
I of Sweden to recover Finland and the former
! Swedu-Baltic provinces from Kussia; a revolution
in Poland; a rising against the Russians in Cauca
sia and Turkietau; and, in fine, a policy of armed
neutrality on the part of England, which may ulti
mately veer round to a temporary or ven definite
occupation of Egypt, in case the Padishah should,
be put hot s de comlxif, by Russia; Greece Is ikly
lo join against Turkey; Portdgal wih 8pol,n., an,d

To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser i
Sir The arrest of Mr. Black for getting up steam
on the tug Robbie cu a Sunday and thus breaking
the law, as it is claimed, by going out on pleasure
on that dsy, leads me to ask a question not for the
sake of a just answer, far there Is no justice In for
bidding a person from using bis own private proper
ty or in going on it or with bis friends on Sunday,
so long as he does not interfere with the rights of
others but It leads me, as I Lave said, to Inquire
whether it would not be as well aud quite as proper
to preveut the church-goer from driving to church
on Sunday which in that case is a pleasure, for all
church-goers will confess it Is a pleasure gtuerally
to attend church as it Is to prosecute Mr. Black
from pursuing Aii own pleasure on that day. The
days of the enforcement of "blue-laws" have passed
iu till eulightened countries, and the sooner the
authorities here understand this the sooner they will
cease to be the laughing-stock of those who are mere
liberally disposed towards their fellow-men. If one
person is to be prevented from doing as he chooses
to please himself innocently ou the Sabbath, then I
say, prevent all. Allow no conveyances to run on
that day; cause every one to walk, whether it be to
church or elsewhere; forbid people from kissing their
wives or children ou Sunday, and set spies ta see
that they don't do it us was done In the olden time
in Connecticut, the "good old days" one is always
hearing about. And then then we will Lave the
millennium but the average person will be very ua
hoppy. Jt stick.
WoHbtarcL stories are told of the doings of
" spirits" in various localities of the United Stales.
The furniture of rooms Is often tumbled about,
feather beds are carried down stairs, loaves of bread
burst into bits, tra caddies turn upsde down, fly
across the room and jCtter the tea which they
contain in all directions. 'Now, without Laving
recourse to supernatural agency, it ftrikes us that
many of these " prodigies" can Le etpIiiECJ
turally. What keeps the particles that compose
a loaf of bread together? A power in nature called
the " attraction of cohesion." The same power
keeps all the particles of matter of which this globe
is composed together, and without it this globe
would burst into pieces. We all Lave heard of
earthquakes and some of us Lave felt them, they
may be said to Le mainly due to eleotrlo currents.
If, then, a loaf of bread suddenly dances off a
shelf and bursts Into pieces, is It not quite possible
that this may be caused Ly some eleotrlo influence
unknown to us which destroys the " attraction
of cohesion," of the particles composing the loaf f
Again there is another power in nature called the at
traction of gravitation, under the influence of which
inert bodies rest stationary until put in motion.
Here, also, unknown eleotrlo influences may tern,
porarly counteract the attraotion of gravitation of
an inert body, such as a feather bed, and lift it
up, carrying it down stairs from the garret to the
cellar. Suppose a man drinks too much whiskey ;
he often loses Lis center of gravity, and tumbles
down and rolls about involuntarily, Lavhag no
longer the control of his movements. This is the
effect of an overcharge cf electricity contained in
the alcohol taken into Lis Lody ; and In this case
the elect rio influence Is produced in an organlo sub
stance. Much in the same way, a man is thrown
down by lighting or the discharge of an clectrlo
battery. The fact Is, mankind are still almost torn
pletely ignorant cf the unseen powers of nature,
and superstition still holds a fearful grasp on the
human mind ; Lenoe, any ciroumstanoe not Im
mediately explicable according to oar limited know
ledge of the laws cf nature, is ranked a superna
tural. Just as eolipses are still thought lo be the
work of the Devil In many parts of the world. As
for spiritualism, all these who believe in it sincerely
for among spiritualists are impostors are under
the influence of a distempered imagination, like a
drunkard or a madman, or a person delirious, or
the devotee cf a vision. The Imagination la a most

We copy the following from tho Auckland Herald:
A good deal of discussion Las taken place In the
House on the subject of malpractices In the obtain
ing of titles to Und in the Ilawke's Bay distriot.
It is alleged that the signatures of natives were
obtained to conveyances whilst the signers were
drunk ; that natives were templed to run Into debt
In order that they might be prosecuted, and ao
forced to sign conveyances. Mr. Ormond, the
MinUter of Public Works, Is stated to Lave been
connected with some of the worst cases. Mr. Rees
member for Auckland East, who Las lately been
engaged on behalf of those natives who are attack
ing some of the most valuable titles In Ilawke'e
Bay, moved for a committee to Investigate the
An entertainment of a novel character, took
place in the school-room, Kawakawa, on the 21st
August, for the purpose of raising funds towards
the uinount required for the bulldiog of a hostelry
for the native children attending the Walomlu
School. The novelty was that the greater part cf
the programme was rendered by native children,
whose ages ranged from Ave to fifteen years, and
the manner In which they acquitted themselves
reflected great credit on their teacher, Mr. Lorrigan.
The Education Bill brought in by the Govern
ment Las virtually passed the House of Represen
tatives, having been considerably altered Ironi u

that a portion of Scrip lure and the Lord's Prayer
should be read each day at the opening of the
school, and the bill Is now entirely oecular.
