Opinion l McCully, J. Mr. Justice Judi
liJ D)t bit, Lein mtcreated.
Thi ciwe comes hjr ai jral from the Interned!'
arj Court of Onho, unl oriinallj from the Dis
trict Court of Kwa, Oahu. The record of the
District Court, trancl.ite.l into English, is that
the I'laintifT clairua 1G dauiacfl for bis 8 horses
running, or pasturing on Li land at Ilanaloa,
feeding the s;raM of that land, continually from
.Sor.teniher 5th, to March 12tb, 187'J. The
cae wan heard March 27th and judgment given
for the I'laintifT for $12 and costs.
The fact that Defendant's animals were on
PlaintifTs land for the time charged, without
license, ii not in controtery, but the Defendant
rIead that this action is barred bj an action and
judgment between the same subject matter, on
the 17th of March, and eu bin its the record of the
District Court, which is substantially as follows:
ts. District Court of Ewa.
JIakue. ) March 17th, 1879.
A trespass suit between Kiwaha, owner of land,
and Makue, owner of animals, for the trespass
(komohewa) of eight horses on Ilanaloa, on the
12th day of March, which hurt were lawfully
impounded on the 13th of March. Judgment is
gifen for the I'laintifT for two dollars and the
costs of Court.
It will be observed that the above record is in
complete, in not Kitting furth the amount for
which I'laintifT sued. We are not tarnished
with the sumiuotis in this care, which might state
the nature of the action more particularly, and
in order to learn what was the issue in the first
case and llic relation it may bear to the second,
we rerun to such testimony as was presented.
Wcdo this upon the principle that it might be a
denial of justice in reviewing proceedings ol Dis
trict Courts, vtl.erc it is alleged that there- was
error of law, to confine our view to the very im
perfect record which is generally kept by them.
In the Intermediary Court, the same motion was
made to diniis en the ground of res a J judicata,
but the Magistrate's record was not then submit
ted and the motion wan overruled.
From the I'la in tiff's testimony, and the above
incomplete records, it is made to appear that the
land in qucetion came into I'laintifTs possession
September Cth 1873. That there were then run
ning thereon the Defendant's eight horses, as
well as horses and mules belonging to several oth
er persons. That about a week prior to March
12tb, the I'laintifT notified the Defendant and
others to remove their stock and demanded $2
per head as a charge for pasturage up to that
time. The Defendant refused to pay. On the
12th. the I'laintifT arrested the Defendant's ani
mals and impounded them on the 13th. The oth
er owners ol animals paid the demand of $2 per
Lead, and it does not appear whether these ani
mals were taken up, or payment made on the de
mand. March 17th, the parties came before the
District Court on the case above quoted. We are
left to infer, that the proeecding was the one un
der the Statute where the owner of impounded
animals deposits the amount claimed, or a bond
with the District Judge, who issues an order for
the release from the round and afterwards tries
the question of the legality of the impounding or
of the amount of damage. Wc must conclude
this was th ca.e before the Court, lor otherwise,
the Plaintiffs demand would Lave been collected
by the pound-keercr.
In the Intermediary Court, Plaintiff's testi
mony herein is as follows : After 1 arrested
the Lorees, Makuc came and as Led bow much
dau-.ag'i icr iieaJ, I saiJ $2 each, lie rcIu.cJ
and I put animals iu the round. Case was tried
and Statute damage awarded for single trespass.
Then I brought action for trcsjas claiming pas
turage, anil judgment was piven in my favor."
Thus it up j cars that I'laintifT presented the
same case in In action of March 17th, and in
that of March 27th, er at least the latter covered
everything except the trespass existing on the 12th
of Jlarch, when the horses were taken up, and
the first case ineludcd what was claimed in the
We arc of opinion that the whole matter was,
ir the Erst case, fx-fore the District Magistrate.
L'ndi r the Plaintiff 's claim he Lad jurisdiction to
consider the amount due lor u trespaM of a single
day r t at had continued over several months
and teriu.iiaird by impounding. The claim was
for the pasturage during the time from Septem
ber 7th to Jlarch 12th upon a guantum meruit,
and tor this he awarded the I'laintifT lr all the
horse two dollars, cr 20 cents each.
II the I'laintifT were not ratirtied with this, he
might have taken his ur teal, instead of which lie
brings the second action. From the fact that
the Magistrate gave him judgment again, and for
nearly the amount claimed, it is probable that
he refused to allow tl- ilaim in the first instance
on the ground that he uld in an action concern
ing impounding, awanl only the damage for the
trespass of the single Uuy, when the horsen were
taken up. This point, or the whole case whs
subject to appeal, and we think that the I'lain
tifT. by not taking that course is closed of farther
action in that subject matter. He rested in the
adjudication made and cannot institute another
Thjudgment of the Intermediary Court con
firming tte judgment of the District Courtis set
Judgment fur the Defendant with costs.
Ir is gratifying to be assured, as trembling hu
manity is, by so eminent an authority as Pro
fessor Proctor, that no special disaster need to
be at pre bended for our globe when tlte giant
planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune
come into perihelion, as they all will between
132 aud 1335. They have often, be says, come
into perihelion before, and in a less extended
period, and no ill results Lave followed. There
is no scientific basis for apprehension now. This
is certainly reassuring, alter all the evil prognos
tications in which sculation has indulged, con
cerning the plagues and earthquakes and tumul
tuous upheavals of the billows, and fiery vomit
ings forth of volcano, with which the world is to
be visited. A pamphlet by a St. Louis astrolo
ger, full of direful prophecies, has startled the
fears of thousands of credulous readers. Many of
the Second Adventist school have had their in
terpretation of the prophecies confirmed by the
portents of the sky, and even some of a scientific
turn of mind have attributed the recent spell of
torrid weather to the attraction of the planets,
although these latter have not been quite so pos
itive in their conclusions since the frozen belt has
girded this temperate zone. Above all, there is
Mother Shipton's prophecy, with the marvelous
fulfillments that have occasioned fears of the
wreck ol matter and the crash of worlds,"
which she sets down for the eventful year of
ldl. Irofei)r Proctor comes ia good time to
com rose the agitation of spirit which has pervad
ed so many breasts. Ilis scientific vision pierces
the future and sees this jlanet moving calmly
through spate, as it has moved through the ages
both of mystery and of light that have passed
away. He dreads no peril from the distant
planets of the solar system ; and doubtless intel
ligent men everywhere will pin their faith to
scientific research rather than to the mystical
dreaming- of religious enthusiasts. This is a fair
abiding place for the buman race, and there is
good reason to believe that it will continue so to
bo for many, many years to come.
Tus revision of the Eible, now nearly complet
ed, ha been a far more expensive work than
most persons imagine. There are fifty-two mem
bers of the committee, and these meet for five
days in every three weeks. No salary is paid to
any one of them, but they are allowed their trav
eling and inn expenses. These, with other items,
will bring the cost of the first edition of the Re
vised ISible, as estimated by the University Tress
Company, which is responsible for it, to about
200,000. and consequently it has been deter
mined to sell the first few copies at a high price.
The new Bible will receive no authorization "
either from Parliament or Convocation. It baa
been discovered incidentally, during tbe sittings
of the committee, that the so-called Authorized
Version never was in fact authorized ecclesiastic
ally or politically. It made its way by iU own
merits, and tbe revised Bible ia expected to do
OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
Xkw York. Dec. 13, li'O.
Just after tbe Fall election in this State, Nast
presented a cartoon ia Ilirjr's 'tklj of a par
rot (Republican) standing n one leg. Lis leathers
stripped off, his eye scratched out. and Lis condi
tion generally very bad. while behind crouches a
monkey (Democrat) with bis tail cut off and Lis
face expressive of intense disgust. Delow W this
question, Wbat sort of a time hive you Lad '" It
is an allusion to a rather coarse story about a
gt-ntlemsa who entered one morning tbe room
where Lis parrot was kept, and found bim stripped
of Lis wing and tail feathers, excitedly swinging
backwards and forwards on Li perch, screeching
at the top of Lis voice. " A h I of a time! a b 1
of a time!' while the monkey who Lad assaulted
bim was crouching in tbe corner of the loom. This
incident ia animal polemics is used by that most
respectable journal to illustrate tbe political situa
tion. Every party man feels that while Lis own
party Las not gained much, the otber party are
having as bad a time ol it as tbe parrot. The He
publicans Lave won the battle, to be sure, but it
was gained against a divided force. It is not com
fortable for them to dwell on tbe fact that tbe
united Democratic vote was in a majority of
30,000. President Hayes turned Cornell, the Governor-elect,
out of the Custom House, on tbe
ground that be could not be trusted to press civil
service reform. Senator Conkling, wbo backs
Cornell, got mad and ran tbe machine regardless
of II ayes. Tbe independent Republicans refused
to vote for Cornell, and tbe ticket was badly
scratched. Tbe Tilden party is demoralized, and
Tammany is knocked into m cocked bat." Tbe
really curious feature ol tbe affair is that 31 r.
Evaris, Secretary of State, wbo was cbiefiy instru
mental in removing Cornell, on tbe ground of his
incompetence as Collector of tbe port, came to this
city and urged tbe voters to elect tbe Republican
ticket. He didn't say very much about Cornell
personally, but urged party unity. People who
cultivate tbe dangerous and most unreasonable
habit of thinking for themselves ask wby Evarts
made that speech in favor of the man he turned out
of office. And tbey answer it by saying tbat no
Republican can be elected President if New York
State fails to go Republican next year ; that
Evarts, who would not leel grossly insulted if he
received tbe nomination next year, concluded that
it would be best" to work for the ticket, even
though Cornell was at tbe bead ol it. This inci
dent shows that the Administration bus no distres
sing affection for civil service reform, aud are dis
posed to think like the Admiral in the 1'inature.''
tbat such reform, like equality ol rank, is good for
everybody but themselves. If they can't afford to
be wholly good, they will be a little good, like tbe
old darkey wbo was stealing a pair of boots, but
under a sudden conviction of sin let the boots go
and stole a pair of shoes.
Congrea-men are infesting ashington just now,
but they are a quiet lot. The coming game will
be a close one, and a false move may be fatal.
Tbe crop of " Southern outrages"' is small this
year ; and besides. Northern men are at last get
ting some sense on the relations of the blacks and
the whiles at tbe South. The daikey does not meet
fond expectations. He is not tbe sublime, whole
souled, gentle, unselfcsh creature the old Abolition
ist took him to be. Several years ago 1 predicted,
and so did some others who studied the case, that
if the North would let the South alone, the "Solid
South" would soon melt into thin air. 1 know tbat
I was called a renegade Republican for saying so.
Just now these predictions are coming true. The
issue in Virginia during tbe late Fall election was
the payment or non-payment of the Slate debt.
Tbe Conservatives, or Democrats, w ho have been
in tbe majority in the Stale since the war, have
generally favored Ibe payment ol the debt. Uut
as they could not all hold office, some of them be
came discontented and got up a party of repudia
tion not really to repudiate the debt but ill order
to get into office. Debt-payers und lion-debt-payers
are generally Confederate soldiers, and nearly all
were Secessionists. The repudiators were led by
General Mahone, an ili Confederate t.Oicer. Tbe
negroes voted against paying the debt the young
men because they were in slavery when it was
contracted, and the old men because they were
told th t they would be sold into slavery to pay
the debt. Tbe result of the election is that in tho
Legislature tbe whites are quite evenly divided
and the few Republicans bold the balance of
power. The non-debt-pajers It ive therefore bought
out the Republicans ; and in Richmond this trans
action occurred lat week, that iu a Southern
Legislature, in which the old rebel element is in a
vast majority, the Solid South " so melted away
in the political dickering and trailing that a onn
anned (infe.lcrute .soldi' r teas turned out of '.

not in Galb! Do we need an army at the South to

large districts, and each iisin t was lighted by one
g is company, which made its own terms. Several
years ago. new gas ci lujiunu-s were foimed under
charter Irom tbe Legislature, (money being freely
paid therefor) with right to put ilow n pipes and
sell gas in any part ol the city. These new con
cerns at once came in competition with the old
compaoies. and a war ol rates commenced. Coal
only was used in making the gas. Now. some 30
rears ago, Tessier du Mo ay made a water gas by
decomposing steam at a high heat. Coal was also
used. The carhon of the coal united with the
oxygen irom the steam and nitrogen wa obiained
Irom naphtha. The was good und i-heap
enough, but the bigh heni inelied pipe?, joints and
valves.. S the process was ahamloued. La fly a
I'.rooklyn man Hied so.ipst..ne in tbe places where
the beat was intense mih made a success ol it. One
of tbe companies bought the tight to use it. and is
now making this -water gas, and selling it at a
price which it simply tuinoiis to all the other com
panies. The result is u grand row. Tbe prices of
gas stock have declined, dividends are passed, anil
investors are uneasy. As thne is some ten million
ol dollars invested in this city in gas stocks, it be
comes a set ions business. The tiiierest in lighting
by electric ity suil continues, and
much money isv
spent in experiment. It wa

faith in Edison, but be has money to spend in ex
periments, and may make a great -4 hit." as he is a
very ingenious mechanic My bigh authority has
invested largely in him, and states positively tbat
tbe thing is done. So Honolulu may soon be
lighted with tbe white light. I believe tbat there
are about twenty companies now winking at the
problem of lighting, but they don't make much
headway. On tbe kindred subject of telegraphy
there is an interesting item. Over twenty years
ago, a man named Eastman invented tbe process
of insulating wire and cables by means of gutta
percha. lie finally obtained a patent in 18G5,and
died shortly after. His widow offered it to the
Western Union Company for a small sum. but she
was badly snubbed by them. The matter died out.
Recently, however, a speculator bought out tbe
widow's right for a trifle, then brought suit against
tbe Western Union Company for tbe infringement
of tbii. patent, and obtained a decree in bis lavor.
The result is. the company cannot use its insulated
wire any longer, and, it is said, will be compelled
to pay over a million of dollars damages for tbe
infringement. The speculator made a good point.
W. N. A.
The intelligence of the British juror has sel
dom been more strikingly displayed than in a
case which came before the Canterbury county
court a few days ago. The plaintiffs, a firm of
rope and sail makers, brought an action against
the defendant to recover the price of some rope
with which they had supplied bim. The plain
tiff's counsel was s satisfied with the case as laid
before the judge and jury by the defendant's coun
sel tbat be declined to address the court for his
clients, and the judge, also evidently taking the
same view, thought it unnecessary to oeeupy the
time of the jury by summing up the evidence.
Tbe jury, however, found great difficulty in com
ing to a decision ; and, as after a grave consulta
tion it was plain that they could not agree, the
judge explained the merits of the case more fully
announced that they found for the defendant. This
caused some surprise in court, which was not
lessened when another juror asked 44 which was
tbe defendant and which was the plaintiff." His
curiosity on this point being satisfied, there were
further consultations and explanations, and nt
length a verdict was returned for the plaintiffs.
It subsequently transpired that the jury had been
all along debasing among themselves the question
as to which was the plaintiff and which the de
fendant, tbeir opinions on the subject being ap
parently divided. At the conclusion of the case
the judge kindly remarked that if there had
been a little want of understanding among them,
they might console themselves by thinking they
bad given a very sound judgment." There are,
nevertheless, occasions on which a 44 little want
of understanding " of this nature might lead to
rather serious results. Eng. Paper.
A New Atlantic Steamer.
The following letter to the London Times is in
teresting. Sir, In regard to an announcement lately
made in The Times that tbe Cunard Company
contemplated the construction of a steamship of
great size and power, it may interest the public
to know tbat tuy partners and I have just con
cluded a contract with Messrs. James and George
Thomson by which that firm is to build on the
Clyde, for our fleet, a screw eteamship, the eize of
which will be exceeded only by tbat of the Great
Eastern, while the eped will be greater than tbat
of any ocean steamer afloat. Ibis new vessel
will be of 7,000 tons and 10,000 horse power, her
dimensions being 500ft. in length, 50ft. in
breadth, and 41ft. in depth, propelled by inverted
direct-acting compound engines, with three cyl
inders and seven oval tubular boilers, having 38
furnaces and 1,000ft. of effective fire-grate sur
face. She will have an extra promenade deck,
and will practically be a five-decker, being fitted
for 450 first-class and COO steerage passengers,
with accomodation for a crew of 200 officers and
men. Her cargo capacity will be equal to C.500
tons, with 1,700 tons of coal and 1,000 tons of
water ballast, having a double bottom on what is
called the 44 longitudinal and bracket ej6tem."
This vessel Las been designed, after lengthened
consideration, to meet tbe requirements of our
trans-atlantic service, and we have adopted in ev
ery detail of tbe ship and engines tbe most ad
vanced scientific improvements compatible with
the safe working of so great a vessel. Among
tbe important matters into which we have cru
cially inquired has been that of employment of
steel instead of iron, and after a practical and
thorough examination into the merits of both ma
terials, we have adopted steel for the hull and
boilers, but under a provision eo stringent that
every plate, before acceptance, will undergo a se
vere and rigid test by a qualified surveyor ap
pointed and stationed at the steel manufactory for
that special purpose, and tbat the manipulation
of the steel by the builders shall be subject to an
equally careful supervision by qualified engineers
of our own appointment. Tbe steel is to be made
on the Siemens-Martin process, and all rivets as
well as plates throughout the ship are to be of
steel. The name of the new vessel is to be the
Sahara, and she is to be ready for sea in March,
1831. I am yours, &c,

As a specimen of what we may term 44 ornate
style," a certain Northumbrian auctioneer an
nounced for sale 44 a quaint mansion and appur

to the amplitude of its lawns and finely timbered
park, presenting a foul ensemble of a country-seat
highly expressive of the agreeable silence and
soothing indolence of a rural retirement." Then,
after babbling eloquently of 44 meads watered by
a bosky trout etreatn, and eelvaged by sloping
woods and birchen braes," of 44 a rookery lend
ing a barytone to the soprano of the mavis and
the merle, in grove and in glade, in sequestered
dell and breezy upland," he condescended to
come to more prosaic matters, and tell those con

of winged game," thanks to its 44 populous nur

with a bit of fine writing worthy of Robins him
