Drowning of Capt. Whitney of the Notte-
bohm." The American ship M. A'otlebohm, which
arrived at San Francisco March 22, from New
York, reports that on the passage, on the night of
Sept. 29th, Capt. Whitney and the second officer
Kelley had some difficulty about the side lights,
and from words they finally came into contact, and
during the struggle the Captain fell overboard and
was drowned. Our readers will remember that
Capt. W. was here in command of tbe M. JS'otte-
bohm during several months of the fall of 1875.

This book, to which wc briefly ret'erred in our
last, is now on ealc at the bookstores of Mcssre
T. G. Thrum and Whitney it Robertson, and
will be found of absorbing interest. It is an
octavo of tome 2-jO pages, well printed on good
purer. Tbe only criticism which wc care to
make, is the remark that rtrliars a divUion of
the work into charters with an indcz at tLc end,
might have been an improvement ; and that oc
casionally we have met with a misprint in words
a fault, however, to be expected when the
author Las not the opportunity to correct proofa.
But as a whole, the book is truly a surprising
monument of the Hon. Mr. Fornandcr's patient
industry, research and literary ability. With
characteristic modesty lie introduces himself to
the reading public in the opening paragraph of
tbe Preface as follows :

Ix our note last week about tbe K'dauea, we Eta-
ted that she was brought out by Capt. Green.
This wa an error. Capt. Bush was ia command.
She arrived ia June. 1SC0. and was run in tbe
island trade for some months by her owners, and
then sold to Janion, Green & Co., for 50,000. She
utterwards became the property of the Govern
ment, by whom she was sold to Mr. Wilder. She
was moreover built at South Boston, Mass. and
not at New Haven. Conn.
Native Seamen. During the earlier part of tbe
week several coasters were detained in port wait
ing for crews, seamen refusing to ship for less than
$25 per month, and some demanding even $30.
After hanging off for a couple of days, crews were
obtained for from '20 to 22 per month; but they
are apt to go but one trip and then leave. This
state of things is owing to tbe rates paid long
shoremen,"' who get $3 per day discharging and
loading vessels. We have heard it hinted that a
gang of Chinamen may be procured from San
Francisco to do this work for much less wages.
Good Cooking. It is an old saying that
Heaven sends tbe meats, but the cooks come
from an entirely different direction." Mine
host Herbert ot the Hawaiian Hotel, mindful of
the fact that the way to people's hearts is through
their stomachs, has secured the services of Mr.
Leon Deiean. who has been the chief cook of
the Union Club of San Francisco for a number of
years past. Mr. Dejean is highly spoken of as a
thorough artiste by gentlemen who have had
the pleasure of tasting his deliciously prepared
u Heboid ! his breakfavts thine with reputation;
His dinners are the wonder oi the nation
When a gentleman, whose genius and talents have
secured fur himself one of the curule chairs ia the
republic of letters, introduces a blubbing aspirant.
bis name becomes a voucher fur the respectability of
tbe latter, and his "Jatete I intuit " ensures an at-
tentive hearing until the close of the performance.
iut we are not all born with a silver spoon, and
many an author, like myself, has had to bear the
double burden of introducing himself as well as his
subject. But when a writer presents himself with
new discoveries, and new ideas based unon them.
tbe reader has a right to inquire who tbe writer it,
and if his discoveries are genuine, before he exer
cises his judgment upon tbe ideas submitted for his
acceptance. It is meet and proper, therefore, on
entering upon ground so little traveled as that of
Polynesian Archeology, on presenting myths and
legends to tbe inspection of the literary world some
of which have never darkened a sheet of rarer be
fore, that I should state my right to present them,
how I came by them, and also the lights which
guided and the aids which assisted me on the
Tho object and aim of tho work is best istated
in the following sentence, which wc take from

The P. M. S. S. Si. Paul, Copt. Krtkine, ar

dates to tbe day of her Bailing, The news,
although not fent-ational, is ttill very interesting.
Some doubts arc now cxprcwsal in various in
fluential quarters wLcthcr the Congrcus, of which
bo much has been eaid, will tako place. Eng
land demands that the wholo treaty tliall be e ub-
jeet to revision ; while Rusnia consents that tne
Congress may discuss its separate conditions,
but, apparently is cot willing to submit to any
modification. This is quite probable, for she
will appear es a victor, and it is but natural that
elio should be unwilling to forego the advantages
she has gained at a tremendous sacrifice of blood
and treasure. It is unreasonable to suppose hc
will submit to be shorn of any part of the pres
tige fche has gained in her conflict with Turkey
by those Powers which took no part in the war.
It is reported (March 21) that she Las consented
to make conccsbious relative to the boundaries of
Bulgaria, and all inipundcrcUuding between tho
three Fiurcrori on this point is removed. Al
though Russia has admitted tho right of the
Congrcrs to discuas such points of tho treaty as
arc ot Kurojican intcmt, it does not appear that
the has tuado this admission directly to Fngland.
The difference still remains unsettled.
One of tho conditions of the treaty of Sun
Stelano provides that Furoiftin Turkey, (except
Bulgaria) must be completely evacuated by the
Russian forces within three months after difinito
peace, and that u portion of the trooj may em
bark on the liluck Sea and tho Sea of Marmora.
Russia is thus In possession of the privilege of
having a portion ol her army always around Con
stantinople. Rut this privilege, by which Rus
sia could at uny inoTuc.t cxercihO u formidable
prcwure, it her interests should H-em to demand
lore, as well as its comparison with that of other lt 'iaM been checkmated by Minister Liiynrd ii-
Ai.mo.st a Fike. Incipient fires are becoming
altogether too frequent for our staid equanimity.
On Monday afternoon fire was discovered in abed-
room over the confectionery store of Mr. Horn, on
Hotel street, under circumstances that cause grave
suspicions of incendiarism and burglary. Smoke
was observed to be issuing from the room, and
upon entering it the bedding, linen, mosquito net,
etc., of the large bed, and the bedding of a child's
cot were found on fire, and were almost consumed.
The bureau drawers were open, and all of Mrs.
Horn's dresses gone. This fact leads to the suspi
cion of burglary. No member of the family had
been in the room since morning, and apart from
the suspicion Indicated everything is a matter of
Incendiaiiy Attempt. Sleepers were arroused
by the clang of tbe fire-alarm bell on Monday
morning last, a little before one o'clock. A fire
was discovered just beginning in a frame building
occupied by Chinese on Nuuanu street, near tbe
City Market, which was happily extinguished by
tbe police before much damage was done. An ex
amination of tbe building in the morning showed
that the woodwork bad been well saturated with
kerosene oil, proving beyond doubt that the act
was tbe work of some diabolical incendiary. A
leaden pill is a proper dose for such . miscreants.
Let the police force be increased, if necessary, to
properly guard the town while people are sleep
ing, and such wretches are thus shown to exist
Hawaiian Amatkii: .Minstkei.s. This deserving
and rapidly improving corps of young eentlemen
peoples, have led me. it may be proper here at the
outset to say that I believe that I can show that the
Polynesian family can be traced directly as having
occupieu tne Asiatic Archipelago, from bumatra to
Timor, Gilolo, and the Philippines, previous to the
occupation ot that arcuipel by the present Malay
family; that traces, though faint and few, lead up
through Deccan to the northwest part of India and
the shores of the Persian Gulf; that, when other
traces here fail, yet the language points farther
nortn, to the Aryan stock in its earlier days, long
before the Vedio irruption in India: and that fur
long ages the Polynesian family was the recipient of
a cushite civilization, and to such an extent as al
most entirely to obscure its own consciousness of
parentage and kindred to the Aryan stock
The question as to bow these Islands originally
became peopled, has always been one ol deep in
terest to the student of ethnography. Dr. Lang,
of Sydney, has recently issued a work from the
London press, of which we published a review in
our issue of February 1G, entitled " The Origin
and Migrations of the Polynesian Race," wherein
the reverend gentleman assumes and we think
on quito insufficient data the identity of the
Polynesian and Malayan raccp. Others have
forming the Porto that if Turkey granted the
Russians permission to embark at Jlujukderc,
the Rritieh fleet would cumo up tho R.w-pliorus.
If tho statement here mado is true, it uliowa how
critical the etate of affairs ft ill continues to ho,
in rpite of tho treaty which is supposed to end
the war, and that a fpark may yet light up a
conflagration that will ct all liuropu in it blaze.
That Russia still anticipates trouble in this quar
ter is evident from the lact that she has in tho
Rohphorus two rcgulurly fitted torpedo ship,
carrying six torpedo boats. (This is denied by
reports lrom other sources.)

Constantinople 7) to inform MuLhtar und Ali

Stevenson of Pennsylvania, Rev. Dr. Wm. Newton
alleged that the growing demand for sensuous
worship was the cause of bis withdrawal from the
Protestant Episcopal church. He says that by
slow degrees a change has come over the spirit of
the church to such an extent that sensationalism on
one band and of formalism on tbe other must char
acterize the ministration cf the pulpit, or by some
means the offending incumbent mast be got rid of.

We are not an alarmist, but we feel it our duty

We have heard of some cases of sickness attributed
to this source. In the very low state of the water,
it cannot well be otherwise, and people should be
careful. We have not heard that any Crjclous

let the water be boiled, and set away for some
hours to settle before it is used. A less trouble

fit for use will be to pass it through a proper Olter.

The subject of a confederation of the Polyne
sian Islands has been frequently mooted, and it
may yet t;ike place. Stranger things have hap
pened. The following extract from a speech of
Sir George Grey, in answer to an address by the
Mayor of Auckland, on behalf of the City Council
and citizens, at a public reception, will be read
with interest in connection with this subject: "In
years gone by he (Sir George) had made up bis
mind that Auckland was destined to be tbe
Empress of the Southern Seas, as her position was
better than any other, lie received oners frcm
Fiii. Samoa, and other islands to be taken into tbe
Colony of New Zealand. It seemed to him that a
great lederated union of the Pacific islands could
have been perfected with a government resembling
the late Provincial system. They would have sent
out their own Lientenant-Uovernor, and had a
magnificent opening, for tbe young people were
nearly all splendid sailors. This scheme was
spoilt by the opening ol tbe Crimean war. and the
ceding of the iNew Caledonia ana Loyalty Islands
to France. Things had turned out exactly as he
had anticipated. The slave trade had sprung up.
and England has been obliged to take what islands
she couid under very disadvantageous circum
stances. Had the people at the time known of
these negotiations tbe popular voice would have
forced the Imperial Government to accede to
the period of Maweke and Paumakua to the times
of Kamehameha I. so far as such history may
be gathered from a critical research into the
legends, traditions, songs and genealogies of the
More About Forests.
At a recent scientific Congress held in Chicago, a
paper was read by Dr. Oeorge L. Andrew, of
Laporte, Ind., on " The Sanitary Value of Forests.
A considerable portion of tbe essay was devoted to
tracing tbe decay of prosperous districts simultane
ously with the destruction of forests. The question
was an important one whether America would ulti- result of tho present dead-lock may be an armed

It is said ( leuiia, March 20), in official tir
ties, licit England biut no nue to uo to war
without first going to tho Cotiuress. If alio
does, she will compromise the Congies, thwart
Andrassy'a policy, and defeat all hopo of an
Anglo-Austrian understanding. The Rcrlin
Cabinet holds the mine view.

England (in regard to the submission of the

Russia that a meeting of the Congress is doubt

British Government seems to expect that tho

the action of Congress in appointing a Commission
which had for its object the promotion of tree-plant

paper sought to demonstrate that they influenced la
au important degree the rain-supply, and went on
to show tbe benencial euects of forests in a sanitary
point of view, pointing out also the drawbacks to
their usefulness m particular sections.
1 he sanitary value of forests was thus summed
up by Dr. Andrews :
1. rorests increase tbe amount of condensation
over their own areas; but by reason of the amount
intercepted by their stems and leaves, tbe annual
rainfall at the earth's surface is not, perhaps, ruate-
riauy auecteu oy tueir presence or absence in
regions well covered with other vegetation and well
2. By means of their interlaced roots, mosses.
lichens, and humus, forests check the eillux of
superfluous rainfall, thus regulating tbe water-supply
in streams and springs, and decreasing the pro
portion of the annual precipitation that is borne to
the sea by the natural drainage cf tbe country.

Ibe change which tree-planting has produced upon
our Western plains is thus far an unmixed good;
but, by increasing the humidity of tbe climate of
certain health resorts, as of Denver, valued mainly
for its dryness, extensive tree-planting is not un
accompanied with evil.

TbfAe Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
Sin: In these times of water starvation, when
consumers are daily warned and admonished to be
careful and economical in their use of water, it
seems to me that every one should be ready and
willing to yield cheerful compliance with all the
rules and regulations that may be from time to
time announced for tbe supply of water to the in
habitants of tbe city. I have no doubt that these
rules are generally complied with; but I have
heard of one instance of a most flagrant violation
which cannot be fairly attributed to ignorance or
forgetfulness. It was on last Sunday morning,
the hour a little before noon, wben a hose was ob
served in a certain yard connected with the faucet
atone side of tbe inclosure, and running along tbe
ground to a grass plat twenty-five or thirty feet
square, and tbe water discharging with nearly full
head. The lower portion of the plat was flooded ap
parently one and a half or two inches in depth, show
ing that water had been running perhaps an hour.
Irrigation in tbe morning, between tbe hours of
6 and , is a right to which all who pay lor it are en
titled ; but what can people be thinking of who
allow sueh a waste of water at unauthorized hours ?
Sir, I pronounce such conduct an outrage upon
the rights of the community, who are all deeply
affected by the present state of the water supply,
and through you desire to call the attention of the
offending party to what was apparently tbe care
lessness of his servants, wben, I have no doubt, be
will see that all cause of future complaint fchall be
removed. Yours respectfully,
Waste so more.
