Feathers. Straws show which way the wind
blows ; and a bint at feathers in connection with tar
in our last issue seems to have hit the Gazttie'
" looulitems " between wind and water. At all
events, the simple suggestion as if it awoke un
pleasant recollections caused him to get angry.
Like the knight in Hudibras,
" Three times he smote on stomach stout.
From which at length fierce words broke out."
" Only spoke off half a doeen dangerous words.
How he might hurt his enemies, If he durst ;
And that was all."
Native Practici:. We hear that among the na-
tives a novel mode of treatment of malarial fever
cases has been quite extensively practiced of late.
Those who are too poor to pay for a foreign physician
and who do not like to send their friends to the
Queen's Hospital, are the ones who have initiated
the new practice. They make an infusion of the
leaves of the blue gum (Eucalyptus), in hot water ;
a good dose of this is given the patient internally,
which acts as an emetic ; the body is well sponged
with Ihe liquor as hot as can be borne, and the pa
tient is put to bed and well covered with blankets.
The fever it is said soon abates, after which the treat
ment consists of exclusion from drafts, and a light
diet with m oderate stimulants. It is declared that
the practice has been quite successful.
Tak. With every respect for the opinions and ex
cellent motives of those of our cititens who contrib
uted to the purchase of tar last week for the purpose
of fumigating the town and driving out malaria,
candor compels the statement that the experiment
was a failure not to say, a fizzle. The tar was
burned in spots at intervals all over the city, but
there was not a breath of winJ and the smoke rose in
straight columns skyward, probably to the annoyance
of passing sea-gulls, but nobody on terra firms could
detect the odor. It is quite possible that, with a
breeze to send the emoke inland, the plentiful burning
of tar along the city front and in the streeets might
have a beneficial effect in dissipating malaria ; but
the recent experiment was plainly a failure. More
over, the fever was sensibly checked before the tar
Wine asd Intemperance. A recent issue of the
S. F. Bulletin has the following on this subject :
" The true temperance movement is to be found in
the cultivation of a taste for light wines. That re
mark is made advisedly ; it is founded on statistics,
and its truth is provable by actual experience. In
the wine-producing countries of Europe, where wine
U cheap, an intoxicated person is rarely seen. Few
individuals, who are at all aocustomed to stimulants,
can imbibe sufficient of a low priced wine to inebriate.
The balk, on the contrary, is too great for the pur
pose, while it requires such a small amount of spirits
to intoxicate. A very marked and gratifying exem
plification of the substitution of the use of light wines
for ardeat epirkj tending to temperate habits is found
in Australia. Formerly two gills of rum a day used
to be served to farm and " station" bands. Now, in
most instances, a bottle of native wine is substituted.
This, although at first objected to, soon came to be
preferred by the recipient. He found the bulk so
much greater, the consequent pleasure of drinking so
much prolonged, and the effect mildly exhilarating
without being stupefying. It is to be hoped that
like gratifying results will be found in California,
and throughout the Union. Even now, in all the
cheap restaurants of San Francisco, a small bottle of
native claret is served for ten cents. Numbers par
take of this for their dinner instead of paying a dime
for a glass of whiskey. The latter would cause a
craving for more drink ; no such desire is created by
the claret. Commercially, therefore, socially, and in
the cause of temperance and order, our citizens have
reason to felicitate themselves on the wine production
of our State."

The TitKiTT. We find the following paragraph
in the S. F. BtdUtia ;f a late date.
a A representative of the Hawaii Government is
in Washington He has bevn assured that there is
no intention to abrogate the treaty. We have
never thought that there was.
Water, water everywhere
And not a drop to drink!"
The Gazette m m save the Advertiser folks never
use the city di inking water. Alter all that he has
said about its bein poisoned, would be have us
commit suicide ?
Chi:I!tsia Meats. As usual our butchers dis
played a tempting array of choice cuts on Christmas
Eve. At Waller's and at Holt's markets there were
some splendid specimens of fat beef tender steaks
and juicy roasting pieces and long lines of plump
turkeys, ducks and sucking pigs. Doubtless good
digestion waited on the appetites of their consumers.
AcvioKvr. On Thursday morning a Portuguese
whose name we did not learn, was injured by a
premature blant or rocks al Pauoa. The fingers of
one hand were badly uluittered and the cheek
bruised. Ttie man wus taken to Dr. Hutchinson's
surgeiy and his wounds dressed. The natives In
sisted that his injuries were a punishment for work
ing on Christmas day.
The Ukasox. It is suggested that the pilot boat
which boarded the steamer from Australia last
Tuesday, tixik off a file i4 the recent issues of the
Gazette, and that Captain Cobb on reading the
gruesome neciuints therein contained of the rava
ges ol pestilence here, concluded not to risk the
lives ol his passengers and crew by entering the
port, and so kept ou his voyage.
Hawaiian Annual for IS80. The publisher.
Mr. Tims. G. Tin 11 111. has laid on our table the sixth
issue of this useful work. It contains the usual
compilation of statistical information respecting
the Islands; quarterly calendar ; comparative view
of commerce since 1843; postal regulations; tar
iff; table of doin- siic exports, etc- etc. A neat and

Toadyism. The editor ol the paper over the way
applies to us a v-ry coarse epithet (which he does
not know how tn spell correctly) the signification
of which is. an abject parasite, or a mean flatterer.
This description precisely (its the man who uses the
word, lor it is perfectly notorious that in the history
of journalism in these Islands nothing has ever ap
proached the Gazette, under its present manage
ment, in toadying to. and mean flattery of. men in
place and power.
The Fever. We are pleased to learn that the
disease has very materially abated in this city.
This change bus been noticuble since the middle of
last week, and was unquestionably the result of
natural causes, unconnected with any experiment
al measures. Tin' sick have been gradually im
proving, and what Tew new eases appear have
been of a comparatively miid type.
From Maui and Hawaii we heur ol no unusual
sickness, with the exception ol one case of fever,
which came from this city.

S. F. Chronicle.
Wasiiixotox. November 29. The Treasury De
partment has investigated the report circulated
some time ago that frauds were being practiced
in connection wiih the importation of Sugars from
the Sandwich Islands free of duly, and finds it to be
devoid of foundation. A special agent who went to
the Sandwich Islands says that all the Sugar sent to
the United Stales is the product of those islands,
and that Sugars ure not sent there from other
countries and then imported into the United States
free ol duty. A representative of the Hawaiian
Government" 111 rived here this week and has been
in consultation wiih the Secretary of the Treasury
regarding th. existing reciprocity treaty. It is as
certained that our Government has no intention of
taking steps to abrogate the treaty.

A Falsehood Uki'Katkd. The Gazelle again as
serts that the drinking water from the Govern
ment pipes contains foreign poisonous sub
stance," (.vie.) and that ''as it comes from the
pipes it is otfensive in smell and disagreeable in
taste." We unqualifiedly prorounce the above
statetnt-iits us falsi-. They constitute u gross and
injurious libel, which the editor should be com
pelled to retract. That there are impurities in our
drinking water, we ure quite prepared to admit;
it would be difficult to find water running in the
open air that was perfectly pure. And there is
something singularly vicious in the farewell kicks
of fulsewitnessing that the Gazette mule is latterly
bestowing upon this community. But its long ears
will soon dssappear beyond the esplanade, and its
senseless bray cease to echo in our ears. Give us
Openinq op Conqeess. Congress opened at Wash
ington on Monday, December 1st, and the message
of the President was read and referred. It is a
lengthy document, occupying some six columns in
email type, and discusses public affairs in detail.
The President congratulates Congress upon the suc
cessful execution of the Resumption Act, and notes
the great revival in business, the balance of foreign
trade up to the middle of November amounting to
about 69,000,000 in favor of the United States.
Says the Alia :
" Strong ground is taken by the President for
the suppression of polygamy in Utah, and he urges
that if the present law is not sufficiently stringent.
that it be made so.
" But is there not reasou to hope that a law passed
seventeen years ago for the suppression of the dis
gusting practice of pologamy, and which has re
mained a dead letter ever einoe, may prove any
more successful hereafter although the Supreme
Court of the United States has, after this half of the
lifetime of a generation, decided the law Constitu
tional? If it has taken seventeen years to obtain
from the Supreme Court a decision declaring a law
for the suppression of a great moral and Christian
crime, Constitutional, bow long will the community
and the world have to wait before the terribly slow
moving processess of our Courts and other engines
of justice shall be active and effective enoogb to
check this flow of impurity toward the modern So
dom, and the obnoxious practices therein of the
filthy-minded enemies of the United States Govern
ment, its laws, and its people ? We can only faint
ly hope for a more decided application of law for the
suppression of the vile Paganisms of Utah.
Those who hoped for a settlement of the Indian
troubles will regret to find that the Message recom
mends the retention of control over the Indians by
the Interior Department. Even the massacre of
Father Meeker, and the threats against the life of
the Commission now in the White River country, do
not seem to arouse the President to a necessity for a
change of management.
" An encouraging word is given to the projected
ship canal across the Isthmus of Nicaragua ; and
some watchfulness for the interest of the United
States, outside of our borders, is shown in the order
despatching a vessel to Samoa, to take possession of
the harber of Pago-Pago as a coaling station ; as
well as in the presentation of a demand for ten and a
half million dollars from England for injuries to.
American fishermen in Fortune Bay."
The Theatre. On Christmas night the Lacka
it-anna's Amatuer Minstrels gave a performance at
the Royal Hawaiian Theatre and to a very Urge, en
thusiastic and appreciative audience. Tb pro
gramme consisted of songs, dances and cotnicalitie
and the laughable farce of Tony the Tailor. The
performance was quite a treat to our people, and as

Concert. The concert of vocal music last Satur
day evening at Kaumakapili Church was well at
tended, ajd the singing was excellent, although it
appeared to some that Miss Juliana did uot do as
well as usual. The duet by Mrs. Kapena and Mrs.
Kapoli was very fine, and the bayonet and sword
exercise especially the latter, by boys were well
executed. Their Royal Highnesses Liliuokalani
Dominis and Likelike Cleghorn, honored the occa
sion by their presence, and we noticed among the
audience Captains Chandler aud Boyd and several
officers of the American war vessels now in port.
Pukoh Match. A pigeon shooting match took
place on Christmas Day, at Adams Garden, Kalihi,
at piesent leased by Allan Herbert, Esq , and was
participated in by Capt. Chandler and Lieut. Brice
of the Lackawana, and Messrs. Sam. Parker and
J. II. Black of this city. The distance was twenty
one yards rise and eighty yards bounds. Sixteen
birds were shot at, and, as will be seen by the follow
ing individual score, the marksmanship displayed
Parker . . .
Milk. During the dry season, some months
since, the dairymen of this city raised the price of
milk from six lo ten cents a quart, for the reason,
as stated at the time, that the pasturage was poor
owing lo drought. Now the average of rain fall for
months past has been unusually large and pastur
age consequently good ; but milk still remains at
ten cents. Surely, by all natural laws, an increase
of water ought to be followed by an increase in
milk supply. The popular supposition is that in
this particular the milk men know bow il is them
selves. Ballooms. Prof. Wells sends us a communication
on the subject of balloon ascensions generally, with
some account of his own ascents under the patronage
of crowned heads in Europe and Asia. The article
is too lengthy for our columns, but we transcribe the
concluding paragraph : " The first balloon ascent
made by an aeronaut in any coantry forms an epoch
in the history of that country, and is an event which
is considered well worthy of being recorded. In the
city of Boston, $500 have been given by the city for
many years for a balloon ascent on the 4th of July,
to instruct and please the people. What could be
more appropriate than a balloon ascent associated
with the ceremonies on laying the corner stone of the

A Kona Storm. After repeated tbreatenings and
false alarms, that tickle individual tti; clerk of the
weather has treated us this week lo a genuine
specimen of an old fashioned Kona. The wind,
which had been light from all quarters for weeks,
on Monday settled down to blow steadily and with
gradually increasing force Iroin about due South,
and at night and nearly all through the night we
had a succession of rain squalls, no less than 4.47
inches of raiu having fallen in the city. On Tues
day also we had heavy showers, witb squalls of
wind from S. to S. S. E. and over 3 inches of rain
were registered, making about 8 inches in twenty
four hours. During Monday night and early Tues
day morning, heavy thunder reverberated over the
city and vivid lightning illuminated the country
round phenomena of rire occurrence here, and
peculiarly welcome just now as purifying the air.
We hear of trees having been shattered by Ihe
lightning, but of no other damage. The electric
iuid however took posseesion of the telephone
business of the city and played faniastic tricks on
the wires. At both the inner and outer stations of
the marine telegraph the presence of ihe myste
rious element became so real and intimidating in
its manifestations that the wires were for the time
disconnected. In fact the operator couldn't inter
pret what the lightning said. The streams, replen
ished by mountain torrents, rushed down their
beds and overflowed their banks, carrying rubbish,
young trees and debris to the sea, and sometimes
rolling big rocks along with rumbling sound.
Some of the bridges trembled wilh the force of the
rushing waters, but stood undamaged. At Ewa
and at Waialua, the rain was also heavy
and the streums full to overflowing. A good
deal of damage was done to rice crops in the lu
district.. At Wateu, where a Chinaman named Aki
had a rice mill, the dam was carried away. A large
and valuable Qsli pond at Waipio was broken
through by the rush of water and the flh all lost.
At Waikele where large quantities of paddy had
been cut and bunched preparatory to threshing,
the loss to Chinese and native planters is heavy.
In fact, the whole low country about Ewa was
flooded for miles, bridges were carried away and
the bay at Honouliuli filled witb floating trees and
rubbish. At Waialua we bear that a new bridge
recently erected, was carried away. At Koolau
also the floods were heavy, and we bear of one
bridge swept away.
The last real Kona storm previous to the one
of this week, was in January, 1860. nearly thirteen
years ago. That storm commenced on the 6th and
lasted a fortnight, during which the Advertiser
reported 13 inches of rain as having fallen in this
city. The heaviest fall of rain in one twenty-four
hours, occurred iu October, 1874, when Mr. W. W.
Hall, on Nuuanu Avenue, registered 8 inches.
New York, December 5th. The Tribune says:
The rivalry between the Panama and Nicaragua
routes assumes an interesting phase. Obviously
there are not going to be two canals dug. One
or the other project must be abandoned. It may
be that the question of which is to survive will be
settled by the action of Grant. If be should ac
cept the proffer of the Presidency of the Nicaragua
Company, the great weight of his name abroad
would probably insure ihe aid of abundant foreign
capital, and a feeling of national pride in the un
dertaking would be stimulated ia this country,
which would carry with it the favorable action of
Congress and a good deal of assistance from Ame
rican capitalists. In such an event Lesseps would
be likely to consider the physical difficulties of
cutting a canal across the Panama Isthmus down
to tide water level more serious than he anticipa
ted, and might counsel the abandonment of the
work, and perhaps turn into the successful Ameri.
can enterprise the capital he has raised. Without
Grant, however, the Nioaragua undertaking will
hardly start off briskly, not that be is a great en
gineer, but be is the best-known American living,
which counts for a good deal in Europe, and in
this country he baa the reputation for practical
sense, which is a guarantee that he will not take
hold of a work that he cannot carry through.

action cf the Government which he predicted would
utterly fail in its otject The agitation against the
landlords, he sai l, would I e continued. The resolu
tions moved ty Parnell and carried witb enthusiasm,
are to the effect that the arrests are arbitrary, un
constitutional and calculated to weaken the confi
dence of the people of Ireland iu the impartiality of
the law, and that the Government which squanders
the blood and treasure of the people in unjust wart
abroad while misery and famine are unrelieved at

of unofficial advisers to assist him in (he government
of the Empire. The council will be purely delibera
tive, without any right of control or interference,
and will be chosen partly by suffrages of the middle

by the Czar from the ranks of the hereditary nobility.
Other measures of local reform will also be an-'

London, Deo. 2. The Fort, commenting upon
Yakoob Kahn's departure from Cabul to Peshawar,

punishment, being in store for Yakoob, for his care-,
lessness, if not conuivanco at Ihe massacre of the

Moscow, Deo- 8. After the arrival of the Em
peror last night, whilo a second train containing

curred. One luggage-van was blown to piece and
seven carriages were thrown off the rails, but no
body wss injured. The explosives are stated to have
been placed, on Monday evening, under the rails at
a point over which the Imperial train would pass
just before entering the Moscow railway station.
The Czar arrived safely, however, at 11 o'clock on
Monday night, and the explosion occurred on the
passage of the baggage train, half an hour after

The scientists says that there is little doubt an in

and rain on the earth's surface. It has been defin
itely ascertained by Profef sor Lingley ' of the Alle- '
ghany Observatory, near Pitteburg, . through the
meanof a telo-cope of great optical perfection aided :
by photography, photometry, etc., (hat the spots '
are cooler than the region by which they aro sur

Professor Langley'a ' observation. The connection
between the solar phenomena? and terrestrial rains'
has not been definitely established, except as regards .
time. Sun's disturbances probably cause magnetic
agitation on the earth, usually followed by protract
ed rains. In other words, the winter rainfall cor
responds iuvcrscty with the reriod cf solar spots. -r
The petiod of magnetic disturbance is one of less heat
and more magnetism ; as a result famine, pestilence
eajtbquakes and wildly coruscating notbero lights.
These the world has had in excess. The irregular
ity of winds and rains, and their' prevalence, have i
been noticed for the last three years on the Pacifio
coast. After the period of magnetic disturbance
comes that of abundant rains, let.s terrestrial agita
tion, better health, more happiness. So we are in
formed, the matter stands to-day. The scientistsare
turned prophets, and they prophesy only good.
