Laborers' Wages A writer in Ibis week's
tHazetlt, after premising that the rate of wages
paid to day laborers here is too high a proposition
lo which we readily assent goes on lo compare
the wages paid here with the rates in Ireland. This
Is a very absurd comparison, when we remember
tbe great difference iu the cost of living and all the
necessaries of life in the two countries. In the
matter of clothing for instance, a shilling will go
os far in Dublin as a dollar in Honolulu.
Naval. We learn from the Victoria lirithh
Colonist, that four Russian war vessels may be
looked for shortly, at this port. The Cotonhl
received the information from Ihe Rusia Consul
for Honolulu, who was then (Nov. 13.) at Victoria.
II. B. M. S. Triumph, flag ship of the Pacific
Squadron, lias arrived at Valparaiso, and the Shah
has sailed for home. It is reported that in conse
quence of the unsettled state of affairs in the Fast,
the British war ships now in the Pacific will ren
dezvous at L'squimault in January.
Derelict Braadt. One day last week (just
before Independence Day) a catk of brandy drifted
ashore at Kaneohe, on the windward side of this
Island, whither the current had carried it from the
wreck of the Etkbank. The natives secured and
concealed it away somewhere in the bush, where
they proceeded to bottle it off and divide. It is
aid to have been a good article of French brandy,
and probably made amends to Ihe people of that
side of the Island for tbe deprivation which they
suffered in the confiscation of the horseload of gin,
mentioned in our last.
Childlike anu Bland. The story comes frora
Hilo that a foreigner there bad succeeded in smug
gling on shore a hundred tins of opium, which he
concealed by burying in a cam Geld. He went re
a Chinese storekeeper in the town and asked Joho
if he would like to buy five tins of opium. O yes, r
John would "likee." So in due tim the five tins
were delivered and paid for. A few days later
tbe dealer proposed to sell ten more tins to the
Chinaman, and the bargain was concluded, tho
opium merchant going cfT to get the tins. John
Chinaman slyly followed and saw where the plant
was. That night he unearthed the entire balance
5 tins and removed it to his store. When next
be was asked to buy some more opium, he stolidly
replied, shaking Lis bead, "O no; me no wantee
no more !'
Irrigation Works oh Mali. Mr. Claus Sf reck
les, through h'.s agent Mr. Schussler, (see notice
in to-day's paper) iseviJently determined to push
the great irrigation ditch fur the Wailuku Commons
to a speedy completion. The plan prcposed of let
ling out sections of the work lo private parties by
tbe job, is a novel one, but we doubt not will
prove a good one, and we expect to Lear that na
tives an l others have gor.e into the Lns'nes ei
tensively. Mteri. W. G. Irwin & Co. are tbe
Honolulu agents in this gran 1 enterprise, an 1 will
give any detirel information. In this work of
bringing water down ' n to the rich but heretofore
barren plains of L'st Msui , wberehy our products
of sugar will be vastly increased, Mr. Hpreckles
(while of course benefitting Limi-elf) will be doing
a grand work towards tbe development of th".
resvu rces of Hawaii nci.

There is great financial depression In Germany.

Last j cat's surplus will be almost entirely re

Prussia towards the German tschrqucr. I'be In
terest on the public debt will likewise ba consider
ably increased, and there are other unavoidable
expenses. Unless important Interests are lo be
neglected, retrenchment will be almost ln;oseihte.
Tbe influx of large sums from extraordinary sources
has crafed, while the ordinary and regular revenue,
suffering from coutinued depression of trade, doea
not allow us to count upon any possible addition
to previous figures. The revenue is Insufficient lo
cover th ordinary and regular expenditures of lh
Slate. The means required to amend this stale of
things will be found iu taxes on imports , hsnded
over to the German exchequer. Meanwhile, ear rent
expenditures will have lo be partly defrayed by
loans. Ihe ucfickit is stated to exceed 70.OO0,(MX)
marks. But for the la.t cf Ihe French indemnity t

steady increase of direct taxes and proceeds from

exact figures of the deficit are still unknown, but
the total result strangely contrssls with the grati

From America, the news is important. Tbe
elections in the Northern States Lave generally
resulted In favor of Ihe Republicans. The returns,
so far received, show an aggregate gain of twelve
Beprescntativcs and one Senator In the National

Massachusetts against Butler by 0,000. Tbe
