tlT We learo that Ilobert Stirling. Lsq . (acccta
panieJ by Mrs. Stirling) is expected to arrive here
bj tbe steamer from Australia, due on Monday next.
Mr. Stirling, it will bo remembered, held tbe cffiee
of Superintendent of Public Works for several jears,
aud was subsequently Minister of Finance under
Kf His Excellency the Minister of tbe Interior,
who last ik was confined to bis room frcsj a
severe attack of optbalmia. was so far recovered
us to be t'tit on Tuesday, but suffered a relapse- on
Wednesday : which last, it b.is been susgosted,
was occasioned by iho hilsome notice of himself
in the Gazette of that day. We arc pleased to
learned however, that he id again convalescent.
a Trial. Last Wednesday morning fire was
started under the boiler at Mr. Geo. Lucas' new
carpenter shop ou tbe Esplanade, and tbe engine set
in motion for a trial. Everything worked smoothly
and for a new engine, very satisfactorily. Tbe
power is IS horse, capable cf being worked up to
2a. Tbe establishment, which w ill be a most com
plete one and far ahead of anything in that line
ever seen in these Islands, will be in working
order in about two weeks.
A Tbamp. A native tells this story: One
morning last week, about 4 o'clock which is lang
before daylight bo was on bis way down town
to purchase beef for bis breakfast, when a for
eigner, evidently a stranger, came out of an alley,
and clapping bis hand on bis shoulder demanded
money. The native, who is a stalwart fellow,
knocked the man over with bis Gat and then run,
(native like) calling out' uaul in !' Returning
shortly after in company with others, tlie in.i.i was
gone. Was it a tramp?
Amateur Musical Society. Tbi9 association of
ladies and gentlemen gave a concert last evening at
tlbe Lyceum, to a Tery full audience. Our space will
permit of our saying only that the Concert was a
rich treat to tbe lovers of music and wbo docs not
love it. We cannot particularise, beyond mention
ing that tbe solos by Mrs. Paty and the song by
Misa Boyd were particularly admired ; that the
duets and choruses were excellent. The music was
of a very difficult character Haydn's ' Creation "
for instance but our Amateurs under the able
direction of Mr. Berger, acquitted themselves with
As Inquisition We hear that there is at present
in town an agent of a San Francisco Association,
which may perhaps, front its understood objects,
be termed a Mercantile Intelligence Office. The
plan is, to ascertain by personal inquiry by the
agent, the financial standing of every individual
doing business in a community. Inquiries are
therefore made as to the nature of bis business;
bow much it pays ; whether he has any surplus
capital and how much ; his business and private
habits ; the state of his credit, Ac, Ac. And any
one who has been subjected to these tests nnd is
marked "good'' in the printed blank, can reap
the advantages thereof when de.iring to buy a bill
of goods in San Francisco ' on time."
Gkxkuai. Grant to visit Honolulu. Contra
dictory reports have appeared in the telegraphic
dispatches as to whether General Grant would go
to the East Indies in tbe Richmond, specially Ctted
for bis accommodation. One account says that be
bad given up the trip ; but we learn that authen
tic letters have been received here announcing
that he may be expected at Honolulu en ronle for
San Francisco in the early part of April. We
note that California papers are counting upon
bis arrival there in May. A meeting ol citizens,
both native and foreign, is proposed for Tuesday
evening next at Kaumakapili Church, for the
purpose of appointing a committee of arrange
ments to make preparations lor a suitable recep
tion of the Ex -President of the United States
during whose term of office the Treaty of Reci
procity was ratified.
A Decoration. Oa Wednesday last, after the
review of the troops was concluded in the Palace
yard, Mr. II. Berger, the worthy band-master,
was surprised by being made tbe recipient, at the
hands of His Majesty, of a magnificent decoration,
in the shape of a heavy gold, 12-pointed star, blue
enameled, weighing about $50. The presentation
(which was an entire surprise) was accompanied
with some appropriate words from His Majesty, to
the effect that the decoration was from the Queen
in recognition of Mr. Bergcr's skill in his vocation
and his diligent service of five years as master of
the Band.J On the front in the centre of the star
is a representation of a puloulou, or ancient t.ipu
etiok, encircled by the words ".Vo kou akamai,"
for your skill. On the obverse is the inscription
Presented by Her Majesty tbe Queen to II.
Berger, Feb. 12, 1879." It is a fine piece of
workmanship, and was executed by Mr. Wenner,
jeweler, of Fort street. Well deserved !
,Di.xkhiiy the Attorney Ukxeiul. His Ex
cellency E. Preston entertained a small party at
dinner at the Hawaiian Hotel on the evening of
Accession Day. The party consisted of His Maj
esty the King, the Justices ot the Supreme Court,
the Cabinet Ministers, the Governors of Oahu and
Hawaii, the King's Chamberlain, and the members
of the Bar. The Menu was presented in mine host
Herbert's best style, everything in abundance,
and well served. The principal toast, "The
King." proposed by the Attorney General, was
duly honored; ''The Bench," was responded to
by Mr. Justice McCully ; " The Cabinet," by Ilia
Ex. J. M. Kapona ; and " The Bar," by the Seniar
member. Judge Jones of the Police Court. The
evening was pased very pleasantly in social con
verse. Tbe band was in attendance on tbe Hotel
grounds, (which were brilliantly illuminated.) and
played some of Berger'a finest selections. The
party broke up about ton o'clock, having spent a
most agreeubl1 evening.

Dcath or a Hawaiian Consul. By tbe last mail
from Eurcpe intelligence was received cf tbe death,
on tbe 2Sth of November, of S. Hoffmeyer, Esq ,
Hawaiian Consul at Cipenhagen. His death was
very sudden. He bad attended an Odd Fellows
Lodge on tbe previous evening, apparently ia good
bealth, aud tbe next Jay was Jcad. The discae is
said to have been paralysis. Mr. Hoffmeycr was
well known aud much respected on these Ilands,
having resided several years at Lahaina. He was
ihe 59th year of bis age.
cxawat. Last Tuesday morning, a hore at
tached to a carriage belonging to His Majesty, hiv
ing been left standing unattended for a moment,
started from opposite the stables in Palace Walk, and
running down Hotel street, the carriage collided
with the fence opposite the Hotel gate, smashing it
up and coming near killing a native. The borse,
leaving tbe wreck of the carriago behind, continued
on bis mad career along Hotel street and down Fort
to King, several persons having uarrow escapes of
beiog run over, and went out of town towards Pa
lama. Tue Cold Sfell. Tbe weather during the first
Tialf of the past week, from Sunday to Wednesday,
'was exceptionally cool, not to say cold, at nights aud
in the early mornings. Tbe wind for the most of tbe
time blew fresh from the North, and felt, to long res
idents of the tropics, as though it came over an ice
berg. We don't believe that the thermometer has
touched " CO degrees at any time in Honolulu, as
has been stated. Mr. C. J. Lyons reports that at
bis residence he observed the following figures on a re
liable instrument : On Saturday morning, 69 ;
Monday, 58 ; Tuesday, 50 ; Wednesday, 55.
The Drf.ao Ditutheria. While it is yet dis
puted as to whether there ha 'eally been any cases
of this disease bore, it is well to know all the
facts about it. We find the following ia an
exchange : Dr. E. M. Snow, the Register of the
city of Providence, in bis last official report, asks
the attention of the people of Providence, and espec
ially of parents, to the following facts :
1. No case of diphtheria occurs without an ade
quate cause. This is self-evident.
2. The causes of nearly all cases of the disease
exist ia the house or the premises, or within a few
feet of the houses where the cases occur.
3. The cause of nearly all the cases that occur ia
the city is breathing impure air from the privy
vaults, or sink drains, or cess pools, or drinking
Building Notes. In addition to the buildings
going up ou our city front for business purposes,
it is pleasing to see and learn o! the extensions la
the erection of residences. On Reretania Street i
corner of Punchbowl, there has just bfen com
pleted a neat cottage for Mr. C. W. Hart ; a litllo
further along on Beretania Street, between the
residences of Messrs. T. May and J. II. Brown is
going up a fine two story building for Mr. II.
Schmidt : while still further out, adjoining Mr. C.
Hustacc's, a cottage for Mr. L. Way is being erected,
than which there promises to be few that will"
compare with it for beauty of design or fiiibjbj
On Judd Street, ground has been broken and out
buildings already erected ror the projected flue
'residence of His Ex. the Minister of the Interior ;
and further along, at tho bead of Liliba Street, we
learn that J. C. Glade Esq. will commence build
ing very shortly.
Fire Department Drill. Last Saturday after
noon the different engine companies were out with
their machines for drill, including " Mechanic No.
2 ; " Hawaii," No. 4, (natives) ; band engines, and
the two recently imported steam fire engines. The
Chinese Company with their steamer, played against
nawali;" and "Honolulu" No. 1, steamer,
against " Mechanic." Ia the first instance, tbe na
tive company were decidedly beaten by the steamer
opposed to them, which threw the highest stream ;
but tbe " Mechanics" claim that their stream over
topped that of No. l's steamer by thirty feet. How
ever that may be, the fact remains that although
muscle may be good for a short spurt, it can
not compete with steam, which never tires. It
may be remarked in this connection, that while wilh
the hand engines alone in case of a fire the hydrants
were capable of furnishing a full supply of water,
with steam engines it will be necessary to see that
the cisterns which fur some years have been ne
glected be kept full and in good repair. Much de
pendence must hereafter be placed upon these depos
itories of water for putting out fires in the city. We
understand that another drill of the Department will
take place to-day, Chief Engineer Lucas being deter
mined that the companies which have charge of the
steamers shall become proficient in their use. It is
to be hoped however, that the time may be far dis
tant when tbey shall be called out to do battle with
the devouring element but when they do, we are
confident that there will be a generous emulation be
tween the companies to do their duty.
The Kig of Vessels.
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
Dear Sir :- -There are many persons, who do
not know the rig of a vessel when they see one,
and many others who misname them ; for that
reason I am induced to bring my feeble light to-
bear, with the full knowledge that I lay myself
open to criticism, not from eea-fareing men, but
from Canal-boat sailors.
I will commence wilh the single-masted vessel
a sloop (and be it understood I speak only of
American Vessels,) then tbe two-masted, or fore-and-aft
schooner ; the topsail schooner, with yards
on the foremast, but a fore-and-aft foresail ; the
hermophrodate brig ; yards on the foremast which
is short, and a square mainsail ; The Brigantine,
short foremast, long main mast, yards on both
masts, but a fore and aft mainsail ; brig, short
tower-masts, square foresail and mainsail ; bark.
three masts, yards on two, same as a brig, square
fore and mainsail, and a spanker on tbe mizzen
mast ; a ship, three masts, square foresail, mainsail
and cross jack.
Now I would like to ask a (at'ur why a vessel
of say tbe rig of tbe Falkinbtrg should be called
a barkentine? She t's a three-masted hermopbrodite
brig, because she has square yards on her foremast
Where docs the bark come in, because-the has
three masts! Then why not call a three-masted
fore-and-aft schooner, say like the Compter, i
To the Editor of lite Pacific Commercial AJttrtittr
.Sir : In your column of Brief Mention' Jan.
18lh, I noticed a paragraph on Diptheria, in which
the statement is made that after due investigation
from what you consider authoritative sources, you
very much doubt if the disease known as diptheria,
"which is a very oggravated specie3 of croup" and
moreover quite contagious, has ever existed here
I beg to remark that, it is quite probable that the
existence ot diptheria may be unknown ; but that
this disease; and nothing else was present here in
its epidemic form somewhere iu the year 1870 or
1S71, 1 think physicians now living, who were then
resident here, will affirm. Although at that
time the disease was particularly fatal among
children and presented many ot th characteristics
of true croup, it was pronounced by Dr. llille
brand l be genuine diptherlt and tbe positive
j testimony of so learned a uosologi.-.t us this gen-
tleman cannot bo lightly laid - aside. Another
physlcla-i Hi ! in prjitice hue and of itual abil
ity and learning aud a lellow countryman of Mine
brand, coincided at tbe time in tbU view, mid if
tho success of tbe treatment adopted by each
of them i to be allowed as an index l their capa
bility of dignolf , their cplnlont. If not continue
must still bo very tttljhty, for the moitality among
their cases was almost '. Your atseitlon that
diptberu "is an aggtarated form of croup," U ac
cording to lbe generally accepted tlu-ory of th
disease, erroneous, as it ia Included among tbt
sj-r.Vic dist'a-.et, and as such is as distinct (torn
croup a it is from Scatlalitia or Mca.le. Croup
always kills by mechanical obstruction In tbe air
passages, whilo diptbeiia although cflrn causing
death in tbe ame manner, may also piove fatal by
blood poisoning, and that la many Idttanret. with
but slight appearances of diaeas in any of lb or

and as are also wound on any part ol th body.
And, finally diptberi is almost certainly Infectious
to a degree, while croup U not. I irutl you will lake
no offence at tbe liberty I bare taken In thu attem

proper information upon the subject. But at the
same time allow me to say, that Iu regard to other

Opium Asylum at Foochow-Treatment.
Can the victim of opium-smoking be rescued?
It is commonly believed that, so terrible Is bis ap
petite, be is beyond help and hope. The asylum
at Foochow has demonstrated the falsity of this
assertion. Connected with tbe hospital of our mis
sion, under charge of Dr. Osgood, there is a sepa
rate bnilding for the treatment of opium-smokers,
where about sixty patients are received each
month. In response to an Inquiry as to tho
method ol treatment. Dr. Osgood nends the follow
ing account of bis practice for the last two years,
during which time about 800 cases have been
" 1st. Tbe total and absolute discontinuance of
the use of opium from the beginning of treatment.
2d. A trusty attendant to be with the patient,
day and night, for the first three, days.

some cases), chicken broth. (The above to be
taken in small quantities and frequently.)
5th. In diarrhrea, give two dracbiu doses ol u
mixture of equal paits of tincture caechu and tinc
'Ctu. Vomiting will frequently vield to bismuth
in fifteen grain doses ; and in some cases a single
dose of calomel has acted like a charm. Ice
would be of advantage in some cases.

be remembered that the patient is below par, and
requires tonics. Quinine and tincture of Iron
have a prominent place in our lisL

or less for tbe first three days, and should make
himself a prisoner for that time. By tbe fourth
day there is usually marked Improvement.

only been one death, and that waa caused. 1 think,
by apoplexy, and not by opium."
