down the superfluous branches cf your trees and
shrubbery. This is an important matter to the
public comfort and sfety. There is hardly a street
in town, or oy of the ayenacs leading from the

in which the equestrian is cot in danger of having
his face scratched or ejes gouged out by the over
hanging branches cf the algeroba or monkey-pod ;
and the injury to carriages resulting from the same
cause must not be overlooked. The trees named,
and other species, grow rapidly in our gardens
and inclosures, and should be kept trimmed.

Coloiis and Colds are unusually prevalent this
year, and there are numerous casea of Looping
cough among the children. The danger in the latter
disease consists in relapse, which can only It cltU
ated by great cars. We Lear cf numerous deaths'
among native children attacked with the Looping
cough, undoubtedly from ignorant 'carelessness on
the part of parents. Typhoid fever is also some
what prevalent in the city another disease that
requires extreme care. The hooping cough prevails
also on Ida wait. i
Rais Stobm. -Beginning on Saturday last, an
extending to Monday ight, this Island was favored
with fine showers of rain, the wind blowing strongly
from the Eastward. Sunday was peculiarly stormy,
the rainfall in the city on that day amounting to
0.4G inch, and at the Ice Works in Nuuanu
Valley 1.34 inches by the record.
It is interesting to note the great difference in the
amount cf rain that falls at localities comparatively
but a short distance apart.
For the month of November the following la the
record of our observers :
Dr. McKibhin, Iteretanla Cottage 107 inches
Capt. Daniel Hmith, Waikiki 2.0U Inrhe
3. K. Wilder, Ice Works, Nuuanu Valley 3.87 inches
JTue Sebenade Nuisance. On the eve of every
recurring holiday and sometimes between holidays
it is the custom for parties of boys aud youths in
this city to go about the streets singing native songs
serenading, they term it. Some carry a tamborine,
bones, or a wheezy accord eon, with which they
" make night hideous." From 11 o'clock till
midnight is the favorite time for these performances,
though frequently they extend into the small
hours. They post themselves in front of some
private house, and keep up their villanous noises
sometimes for an hour, wherein rosy be a sick per.
son, or the occupant of which is in vain trying to
go to sleep. We have no objection to anyone sing
ing to their heart's content, but not in the streets
after a certain hour of the night say half-past y.
SnniTlAi.isM. At a seance held at certain place
of public resort early last Saturday evening, the
spiritual manifestations were remarkably lively.
The audience was small, but appreciative, and the
manifestations were so brit-k, that those present
began to call each other pet names, apply endear
ing epithets, and embrace one another. On the
breaking up of the circle, some of the audience
were in a partially damaged condition. We as
pect that the controlling spirit on this occasion
was an evil one, and would advise those interest
ed in mysterious manifestations of this kind in
future to call up no more such rebellious rpirils,
as they are apt to become troublesome when too
many appear at one time and on such short notice.

Gin dt the IIgbe-load. Last Wednesdsy
evening just after dark, a native was arrested at
Moanalua, a few miles outside the city, leading a
pack-hone loaded with bottles of gin. When brought
to the station-bouse and questioned he stated that the
gin was sold and furnished to Lim by an employee
of a wholesale bouse in Honolulu, and that he was
sent up from Waialua to buy the gin with which to
celebrate Independence Iay. At the tritl yester
day, it transpired that the gin was bought by one
John Taniolo, who is not connected with any liquor
store. Ho was fined $159 and costs, and in default
of payment to be imprisoned for COO days; and the
native Aina, who was conveying the stuff to Waia
lua, was fined S73 aud costs, or imprisonment for
75 days. What a fine time the Waialua folks Ttild
have had with three dozen quarts of gin !
Death ox ?niroan. La.!t Sunday morning, as
the steamship I'trusli was off the port, the Chief
Engineer, Mr. Robert McCall, died quite suddenly.
On the arrival of the ship in port, the remains
were taken to the .Station House where a yxi(
mortem examination was held by JJrs. McKibhin
and Hutchinson to ascertain the cauxe of datb.
This was found to be strangulated hernia. The
Masons of the city, having lcarr.ed that the de
ceased was a member of the Fraternity, a number
of them assembled on very Lri f notice, and es
corted the remains to the Nuuanu Valley Cemetery,
where they were inferred with the impressive
honors of the craft. After the masonic services at
the grave were concluded, Capt. McKirdy of the
J'erusia made some very appropriately worded
remarks, adiressed to the Fraternity, in which he
heartily thanked thern for the prompt manner in
which they had rendered their aid and assistance
at a time when it was so much needed.
I.vLiEi'ESLt.NCE Dat. The celebration on Thu.-sdsy,
the 35th anniversary cf the recognition of Hawaiian
Independence, comicg as it did so soon after
that cf the King's birth day, was very quilt
The usual salute was fired at noon. There were
a good many private luius and picnics in the
suburbs, and the usual amount of borse-ridiog and
drunkenness, among the native population. The
band gave one of its excellent concerts at the Square
in the afternoon. The arrests were 14, of which 'J
were for drunkenness and the remainder for fast
riding, all of which cases were summarily disponed
of in the Police Court on Friday morning. Consid
erable comment was made among residents on the
fact that II. B. M. S. Opal, at anchor in the harbor,
did not recognise the day, even by hoisting the Haw
aiian flag. On inquiry as to the cause of this appar
ent slight, we learn that no official notice Lad been
received by the British officials cf the day being a
national holiday. It is a well-known rule that the
Foreign Office must notify the Representatives of
foreign governments of such occurrences, otherwise
they cannot take cognizance of them.

The year 1877 will le ttttM-tubtred ly those
who have had occasion to navigate the 1'aclflo
Ocean about the Equator, more partlcalaily' to
the westward, by the ereat dlstuibauce ol the
Equatorial currents. The American (iuano Cow
pany Islands were almost Inaccessible for about
ten month, thut is Jams, Baker's aud Mow
land's Islands. From Jtiue 1877, to 4prll 1078,
the current wae running lo the eastward, with a
velocity oflroulao to three and a half miles an
hour, w ith westerly gales and great quantities f
rain, so much that the guano could not Le dtled.
The temperature of this tUeain was tC 9 Fahren
heit. This current, In lis normal condition should
be between the latitude of 4 30' andh north,
with the eold Equatorial stream runtilug tU the
west, al a temperature , of from 7 to 78
Fahrenheit, and extending from 4 3U' north lati
tude to southward of the Jqualor. Without a
fixed limit, this is the great Antarctic current that
run down the coast of South America, and cornea
lo the equator at the (Jalipagos Islands, where the
water is so cold that coral will not grow, aud the
strange phenomena of Fur Heals being' found at
the Equator, they having followed the cold stream
of water to these Islands, and found a brecdltig"
place, under ihe Llaxiug Lrat of a tropical sun.
When the JJmrjlc, commanded bj iltaroy, wat
surveying the tjallpngos, the temperature of the
water at Albemarle island was found 17 c Colder
on the south side ol the Island than ou Ihe north
side. This cold stream follows Ihe Equator aud to
the north of It clear across the 1'aeilt Doean.
This, and the counter current to the tioithoflt,
has been deflected to tho south ft em Iww to threw
hundred miles, bul at the data of this paper the
current! have returned lo their normal condition,
and from reliable sources of information from the
Line Islands, the fleetest force wat In the taieaUit
ol July, August and September, lb77, when the
current gradually began ton lax.
There ha been considerable speculation at lo
the cause of this unnatural disturbance, and those
who have fiveu the subject a thought late Con
cluded that volcaulo upheavals from the bottom of
the ocean have been the cause. Now if this Las
been the cause, would those streams Lave returned
as gradually as they recedttd away from their nat
ural limit! 1 think not, aud that theory will Lave
to be abandoned.
The writer of this having been on and about the
Equator frou January to October, 1877, and
with ample lime lo observe the sUange freaks of
the current moving south of their limit and
having Lad thirty yean experience In navigation
about the l'acific, and observing the streams of Lot
and cold water, ascribes the sol cause to planl
tary influence, the near approach of the planet
Mars to the eurtb In June. 1877, with a Llgu
southern declination, and the earth passing be-,
tween Jupiter and Saturn in August, ell in south
ern declination, would rzert an influence 'on tnia
globe sufficient to disturb all of iu fluid elements.
From all parts of the world come the tiding of
famines, drouths and hurricane one In particular ,
in this ocean that swept past Tahiti aud leached
the l'ornato islands, where such a gale was never
known before. From these occurrences the eon- i
elusion is arrived at that tho l'lane) Mars, vrltb
some Influence from Jupiter and return, hat bfn
the sole cause of the unnatural disturbances of the
air and water of this globe. Ill to be Loped that
some abler person than the writer ol this nay lu
vestlate the subject more fn!ly and solve the pro-'
bleid, to the satisfaction of the thinking men of
the limes in which we live.
