THE GREAT VOLCANO
Threatens to Destroy a City
SUPERSTITION OF THE PEOPLE.
The Goddess Pele Kilauea in
The great eruption of Mauna Loa, or the
Lofty Mountain, ha been flowing for about
eight months. The mighty mountain has
pouresl forth from its upper vent, near
Mokuaweoweo, the summit crater, a river
of lava, about fifty miles long, and varying
from half a mile to four miles in width, which
is now distant a few miles from Hilo, threat
ening to destroy the town, to fill up the
harbor, and probably, as on a former oc
rasion of eruption, invade the Pacific ocean
and add many thousand acres to the area
of the Archipelago. Whilst seeking for
compensation in the view of a possible
great misfortune, it may he interesting to
note, that whilst King Kalakaua is mak
ing the tour of the world, in order to bring
more people under his beneficent sway,
the goddess Pele may be adding a new ap
panage to His Majesty's dominions.
The latest reports from the eruption in
form us, that the great lava flow that had
reached within two miles of Hilo, had then
broadened its stream to a width of about
four miles; ami banked it up in places to a
httighth of over one hundred feet; and there
halted, like a beleaguering force, before
making a final assault, and storming the
doomed city. Already it had sent off a
skirmishing stream, the narrow flow run
ning down the gulch of Kukuau; and should
the great lava embankment burst forth
along its front, the destruction of Hilo would
be swift and overwhelming; with not a
vestige upon the corrugated, aud wavy sur
face of black'glass and clinker, to show that
over the spot, the aspirations and spires of a
christian community once pointed to heav
en. But let us draw a more hopeful pic
ture, that the capricious and c'langeful fire
deity, whose sex was wisely determined by
the ancient ami observant Hawaiian mind,
will find vent for the lava rlnW, down the
ravines of Kukuau to the sea ; or better
still, simmer down the seething subter
anean lake that foeds this flow, and allow
beautiful Hilo to rejoice over the passing
away of a great scare, and have her hill
tops ringing with the rejoicings of a grate
The christian people of Hilo recently im
plored, in public prayer, the Almighty
Ruler of the Universe to stay the devas
tating march of the lava flow, but a large
portion of native minds still incline to the
ancient superstition,, and recognize in the
upheavals and outpourings of the great Fire
Mountain the operations of. the mighty
Fire Goddess, Pele; and we have before us,
in the letter of a native correspondent.
(K. K. W.) published in the native paper
F.lele Poakolu a curious illustration of native
superstition. The devastating lava had
been for. some time threatening the home
stead of one Keoni.Holo, and old native, who
had lived for thirty years on a pleasant
kuleuna of abont twelve acres, flourishing
with well irrigated taro patches, potato
patches, and choice fruit trees, within a
short distance of Hilo. KeonI had faith
that, although great Pele might not heed
the prayers of foreigners, she would be
touched by the offerings of a true keiki
(son) of the soil. .He offered his choicest
pig to the advancing flood of flre, crj'ing
out: Aloha o Pele. Mohai ia oe o Pele.
Hail to thee, O, Pele. Receive my gift, O,
Pele. And the dread goddess responded,
with a puff of steam and a crackling flow of
blood red flre, that smothered the squeak of
the poor porker. Again Keoni stood before
the advancing tide of flre; and offered chick
ens, ohia fruits, ohelo berries, and a lock of
lis hair; but Pele was not to be coaxed by
Keoni. Her cohorts of red wrath moved
onward, licked up with a moment's fizzle
the flowing taro patches, crackled through
the orchard, and with a flash and a flicker
rolled over the old man's once smiling
homestead; leaving overspread above its
site, the burning floor of an inferno, a surf
ace of twisted, serientine folds, and colls of
glassy black lava. Then our correspondent
in company with Hon. D. B. Wahiue wit
nessed the leap of the river of fire, into a
small lake, or pond and contemplated with
awe the terrific explosion and roaring vents
of steam, as the death embracing fire, sent
the spirit of the lakelet screaming away to I
tne upper air.
We learn from recent visitors to the Ha
emaumau of Kilauea; or the Everlasting
Home of Pele, many interesting particulars
n regard to the present state of the great
act i ve crater which is distant about 30 miles
from Hilo. Tourists to the volcano, for
many years past, all remember certain act
ive pools of lava, the XortH and South
Lakes; which ordinarily bubbled and tossed
a fiery flood at a depth of about 120 feet
below the floor of the great crater; now these
lakes have all been filled up, and there have
arisen peaks and cones of hard lava, that
rise over one hundred feet above the south
bank of the great crater which is about
one thousand feet high. But there has
burst forth a new opening in the great
crater floor, not far distant from the old
lakes; and a new lake, almost round in
form, about COO feet across, and some 70
feet in depth in ordinary stages, below the
surrounding brink. Here the great Hawa
iian volcano presents the most varied
fantastic play of liquid lava. The recent
observers of the new lake find ordinary
language insufficient to convey their emo
tion, and seek expression in fervent poetic
effusion. But such has been the effect on
all observers of the lively play of Pele in
times pa.-t. And they have labored with
overstrained description to describe the
undeseribable. Of course that which changes
its forui, feature and action, every minute of
its existence since it has been observed,
and evidently has done so in ages past, can
not well be described. There are cert
ain displays of the action of our great vol
cano, that startle our sense of wonder, yet
may be daguerreotyped by description.
Here are some of the phases of the play of a
fire lake, as recently observed in the great
crater of Kilauea. Sometimes it almost
seems to sleep; and the dlsapointed visitor
looks down into a black valley, and observes
a smoking pit, giving no more evidence of
combustion than a tar kiln. But the ob
server stands on t lie brink of the pit, or
great pool, or lake, a9 now appears, about
COO feet across, and whose surface Is about
70 feet below him. And what Is this sur
face ? It presents a dark silver grey hue,
with a satiny shine. This is a crust of
quiescent lava; and the observer, who has
expected to have his sence of wonder
strained to sneevhlesness, savs: " Is this
all?" No! look! the frozen glassy lake is
alive. What a heave in the centre some
mighty teat lifting up that floor. Now a
wave of undulation runs round the encrust
ed marge. And there is an outburst, a
blood red fount, gushing and bubbling from
one of earth's arteries. The broad disc of
the lake heaves ami trembles. Fitful gas
eons flashes flit across. And now the
moving floor cracks, and a serrated fissure
like the suture of a skull, runs from marge
to marge. And quick darting streaks, sud
den cracks of the crust, shoot across in all
directions. These serrated streaks are, at
first, rosy lines on the grey surface; then
they widen like crimson ribbons, broad
ening to the view. They undulate with
the billowy motion of the whole upheaving
surface. Another crimson fount springs up
aloug the now fretting and roaring rim of
the lake. And another, and another of
now wildly upleaping fountains of fire toss
high their gory crests; even casting gouts
and clots of the red spray, that fall and
harden near the observer's feet. By this
time, the spirit of our inferno is aroused
The whole fierce mi lake is all boil and
leap and roar. It is more than the roar of
loud sea surfs beating bold bluffs. The
surging tide of the molten earth, sounds a
deeper, bellowing bass than any note of
the sounding sea. And now the heaved up
crust broken into fragments, is churned up
and dissolved in the boiling flood. The
roaring gulf is now indeed a vortex of in
describable glories and terrors. Caves open
on the sides of the surrounding wall, and
man sees more of a hell than he ever inia
gined. A thousand demons are now hold
ing high carnival in this bottomless pit:
and the leap and play of a fiery flood, the
dance and swell of a red surging tide, and
the roar and shriek of the dread forces Is
suing from the red hot pulsating heart of
the planet, make a thoughtful observer hold
his hand to his own heart and say: ,l This
is enough; the Almighty is here."
And then, the wild lake settles down to
calm again; or to a milder display by and
hy; or perhaps simply upheaves, and over
flows its bounds, and spreads abroad in the
great crater. But at all times, it is wonder
ful; and is ready to satisfy the curious ob
server, that here in mid Pacific, in our Ha
waiian islands, is the grandest, most varied
and most momentous volcanic action to be
seen on the surface of the globe.
The facilities for reaching this ever active
volcanic display at Kilauea, about 30 miles
distant from Hilo, are greater now than in
former years. No doubt for some time to
come, the curious traveller may satisfy his
desire in respect to volcanic display in the
vicinity of Hilo. The present eruption some
what resembles that of 1859, which con
tinued to flow for thirteen months. It
will to all appearances flow for some months
more, and may add a new promontory to
the geography of Hawaii.
Kacino Affairs. The Races at Kapiolani
Park to-day are expected to be very closely con
tested. Some of the finest stock in the country
has been matched. The celebrated horse "Mai-k
Twaiu " is matched by Mr. Bigby against the
noted horse "Blackthorn," entered by Mr.
Brown, in a mile dash. The race is for a thou
sand dollars, each horse carrying 108 lbs weight.
These horses had a contest on June 11th last, in
a two mile race; it was one of the closest on
record, each horse keeping neck and neck nearly
the entire mile and repeat ; Mark coming in
under the wire barely a neck ahead. The next
race is for a purse of five hundred dollars, be
tween "Romping Girl" and "Sally Blaajk."
Mr. H. B. Hales enters the former and Mr. Tom
Walker the latter. This will be a three-quarter
mile dash, each horse to carry 108
lbs. weight. It is expected this will
be hotly contested, both horses being
in fine condition. The next race is a
trotting match between theb g "Bismarck," en
tered by Max Richeu, and the g g "Haymaker,"
entered by A. D. Courteney, mile heats, best
three in five, to harness, for a purse of five
hundred dollars. This match will be n spirited
one, and friends on both sides are sanguine of
success. The last race is a three-quarter mile
dash between Mr. Von Bismark's Katie Lee and
Mr. Gibbs' "True Blue," for a purse of two
hundred dollars. Each rider will appear in
gentlemen's riding habits, and though " Katie
Lee " is a slight favorite in the pools, yet the
" Blue " is likely to make her do her best. On
August Oth. a match is up on " Romping Girl,''
entered by Mr. Hales, and " Stanford Colt,"
entered bv Mr. T. B. McClellan, for a three-
quartgr mile dash, for a purse of two thousand
dollars, each liorse to carry m ids. un tne
same day, " Sally Black " aud " Mark Twain "
will come to the scratch, in a mile dash, for a
purse of five hundred dollars, each horse carry
ing 108 lbs. weight. Both horses have made the
same record. On August 23d, the grand trotting
race between the b g " Commodore " and the br
g Oliver," mile heats, best three in five, to
harness, for a purse ot two tuousaua dollars,
will be the great event of the season. Mr. II.
B. Hales enters "Commodore, ana nr. l. u.
McClellan enters " Oliver." The public will
remember that both horses have been matched
three times before, but all these trots turned out
very unsatisfactory. The horses have since
chanced owners, and the new owners have been
urgently requested by fhe sporting fraternity to
fjy We have the pain of announcing the
death, on Monday last.after a protracted illness,
of the widow of the late Chief Justice Harris. The
deceased lady had been suffering for some weeks
previous toSthe sudden demise of her husband,
and was unconscious at the time of its occur
rence. Since that time she has never been m a
condition to receive the sad news, an.l her rela
tives were spared the painful task of communi
cating it to her. The funeral took place on
Tnesday, and although quite private, was at
tended by a large number of friends. The
opening portions of the service were read at St.
Andrew a Church, where the choir were in at
tendance, and sang the solemn hymns, " When
our heads are bow'd in woe," ami " Nearer my
God to thee." The interment took place at the
cemetery in Nuuanu Valley. Mrs. Harris was
the daughter of Chief Justice Allen, who pro
ceeded the late Mr. Harris in that office, and
now represents this Kingdom as Minister at
Washington, and the sister of Col. Allen, Collec
tor General of Customs for this Kingdom.

Ou Monday last, in a civil suit tried be
fore the Supreme Court, Rev. Sereno Bishop
sought to recover $2, .100 from Messrs. Ahlo Jt
Loo Ngawk for damage and loss sustained by
him through the defendant's having diverted a
certain water ditch which the plaintiff claimed
as his property, thereby destroying his taro
laud. The jury considered the amount ciaimea
as excessive, and awarded a verdict for plaintiff
in the sum of $1,200.

would be carried from a cartridge.
Moku: Stated that he lived iu Fort street
On the 11th June two girls came to his house
from town. The Rhodus brothers remained in
his house with the girls quite a time. About
o'clock a disturbance arose about the payment
oi moucv. lie went msiae tne room and had a
tussle with Edward Rhodus.
During the anrav he was shot bv Alfred
Rhodus. He fell down insensible and did not
see the prisoner afterwards.
In cross examination he said he did not lock
the door, neither did he refuse to let Edward
Hannah and Kalua, the two girls referred to
above, testified to the altercation that had taken
place, because Edward Rhodus refused to pay
Hannah any money. They also agreed that
Moku came in, shut the door and locked it.
Heard a report but did not see anv pistol. Ed
ward jumped out of the window and Alfred
over the partition, and escaped. They sent for
Messrs. Dayton, Fehlber aud Revuolds testi
fied to expressions made use of by Alfred Kho.lus
after his arrest. He enquired " if the nicker
was dead " and on being told " No " he replied
that " He was glad of it." Dayton could not
swear positively that prisoner said " He shot him
plump inside the head."
Mr. . O. Smith described the turning of tin-
Mr. Limbarth claimed to be the owuer of the
pistol that committed the deed.
Air. Bickerton, l'olice Magistrate read from
his record, evidence given at the preliminary ex
amination, which gave rise to a difference of
opinionbetween His Honor and Mr Hartwell. The
counsel for the defendant was overrnled.
Mr. Wilcox the interpreter said ho did not
recollect evidence after he had interpreted it.
He considered that to be the judge's business.
Edward T. Rhodus testified how he, his
brother Alfred and a third party, had passed the
11th June. They first went to a Sunday school
picnic, thence to the race-tracK, uack to the
Astor House Dining Rooms and finally visited
Moku's house under the guidance of au ex
pressman. He detailed what occurred in that
house and spoke of the shooting as the result of
Alfred Rhodus the defendant, gave similar
testimony to his brother, adding his reasons for
carrying a loaded pistol, he having been warned
that a -Chinaman named Atong intended " to
knife him in the dark." He particularly de
scribed the shooting of Moku aa accidental, and
after fulfilling his engagements on that night he
proceeded towards the police station to give him
self up. "
Before proceeding to address the jury lor the
defence, Mr. Hartwell considered it as essential
for the defence that the jurv should go and
inspect the room where the shooting took place,
His Honor granted permission. After au ab
sence of about 20 minutes, they returned.
Mr. Hartwell for the defence said: that 'in the
whole of his experience in criminal matters he
doubted if he ever stood up before a jury with
the same feeling of responsibility. He did not
wish to misrepresent facts; he wished to meet
them. It was understood the boys were not in
eood wav. Human nature is weak. He
would grant that the defendant carried a pistol,
and he considered it a most dangerous practice
to carry concealed weapous. It is the custom
for the judicial authorities to frown upon the
practice, but reason had been given in this in
stance. He would not say it was a legal reason.
He knew it was reported, and falsely so, that the
defendant, had said "he meant to kill the darn
ed nigger." The news had been spread through
town that the brothers intended to Bet up a faro
table. He believed that if defendant had the
right man he would do the right thing for him,
but he would leave it to the jury to do every
thing that was fair and kindly towards him.
He, (Mr. Hartwell,) knew the position of a
father and mother agonized with the fate of
their youngest born. A telegram had been sent
that the defendant was under arrest for attempt
to murder, and he (the learned counsel) was here
alone to talk for him. He hoped if they saw
cause to acquit the boy, he would grow up with
experience that would make a man of him. He
alluded to the mixture of drinks that had beeu
taken by defendant on the 11th June and tin
various episodes that occurred on that day.
He also adverted to the evidence of Moku and
the two girls and plainly showed that the former
had lied. He thought t" t the fact that Edward ,
Rhodus was right in a. line with the shot would,
lay more in the minds of the jury than all the
argument of lawyers. lhe girls did not see the
pistol. If he had walked up to Moku and In-
held the pistol close io his head, they must have
seen it. Either of the bovs could have taken
Moku up and put him out. There was no inteu-
lon to kill or murder, but the pistol was shown
for the purpose of scaring Moku. He, (the
counsel) traversed the evidence of Mr. Dayton
and the police officer who made the arrest.
Under all the facts he thought they would lie
hardly justified in finding that defendant held a
pistol to Moku's head. According to the charge,
he either meant to murder or he did not. If
the prosecution had been put in a different form
there would have been probably no defence.
He implored the jury to dismiss from their
minds any words he might have said against the
defendant, and give him 'the benefit of the
doubt. If they could say there was a fair,
square doubt, the law is, they acquit, and he
begged them to do it.
Mr. Preston spoke substantially as follows for
the prosecution: He asked for a verdict on the
evidence. They had nothing to do with tin- de
fendant's father and mother. Their sympathy
was not to be aroused. He did not ask them
for sympathy for the old man Moku. He asked
hem to commit the defendant for hhootinu in a
wanton and malicious manner, -and without
excuse. It was said. There was a discrepancy in
the testimony of Mr. Dayton and Mr. Fehlber. Ho
would convince them that defendant had sub
stantially sworn to the same thing. His learned
friend had said there was no motive, that they
could have thrown Moku out of the house if
they had wished. He admitted that that was
part of the case for the prosecution. Instead
of putting him out they shot ffim, and tln-u one
jumped over the partition and the other through
the window, showing there was no occasion t
shoot. He was constrained to think it was oiie
of. the consequences of carrying unlawful
weapons, a practice not to be tolerated in anv
civilized part of the world. It shows reckl- is
ness and disregard of law. He refeired to the
Sunday School picnic aud the races, and after
the shooting he armed himself with a diik. He
went to a supper party and did not think of the
old man with a hole in his head. He thought
nothing of whether he was alive or dead. If it
was an accident he should have gone for a doc
tor or to the Station house to have reported ii.
If he shot intentionally he urged upon them to
find him guilty, as it was a cowardly and brutal
assault upon a poor old man of lhat age, and
'tis well he does not stand charged with murder.
Those young men knew what they were about
that night; they were disregarding the laws of
the country and their moral obligations. During
the past two years firearms had got into more
general use than formerly, and we ought to dis
courage their use. He did not ask them to
punish the defendant for the meanness of his
brother. Malice is shown by a disregard
for the lives and safety of others. This was
one of the plainest cases ever before a jury that
it was the intention to kill, and it was for them i
to say if they could infer anything else from the

' V The I'.ditoriul article, on Pool Selling io
last W'.-d ne. lay's Umrttr contains some very
ei ront ons remarks, viz: That young men em
ployed about town are the principal support in
betting in the Fool rooms. This ia indeed an
utter f.dseeood, and no youug clerk employed
about town visits these Fool rooms, much less
bnj-s in them; as the oiilj- Pool buying ever don
is by parties who are their own- masters, and
fully acquainted in starting circles. If, on the
occasion those employers who called on the
(itizffte scribe (providing thev did), he would
not have laid himself so liaLlo to be contra
dicted had he solicited these employers to 'visit
certain dens in Chinatown, and the rooms of
inanj- young clerks who visit these dens and
play at cards in their hotiu-s, night after night,
besides sp nding their time iu Billiard saloons,
throwing dice, etc, Unt it is notorious un
truth to say that Pool Helling en horse racing
invites or allows these yemng clerks to them.
Time and again certain j-oung men have bD
refused participation in Pool selling, and th
first instance lias to be recorded where they
have made bets in Pool rooms, unless by chance
tlc-y pass their money to home one w ho is known
to speculate, in pool buying. Certain gentle
manly rules govern Pool helling, just as much
so as speculating in sugar, stock, and all other
exchanges. ( 1 cut li-nieu of the turf and men of
honor buy in tin- Pool rooms because it is a
security to them; as 1h.ii.1m are given by th
banker in full of the total amount received, and
it is done to avoid displeasure iu making beta iii
placing the money in any mid everybody'
hands. Besides it is done rjienly, for the reason
it is it business that is conducted with honor all
ovi r the world. Tin refore, if your neighbor
tinzi ile would endeavor to currj' favor in som
other manner it would be much more proper
than ti iug this sort of affectation on th public.
Tin- .hath of a little native fciil about 6 years
of age, named Keluia, took place at Kaanapali
near Lahaina, under l cry singular circumstances.
The girl, along with a little brother of three
yeai i, acc.impanir-d their father to the beach,
who went fishing. The children were occupied
s- arching in ihe sand for small crabs, used "for
bait. The natives will Kcoop out holes of a
depth f)f two feet, e.r more sometimes, in follow
ing one of these burrowing crabs to their inmost
retreat. The children were occupied at on of
these holes ; and the little girl in her endeavors,
no doubt, to scoop and search deeper, bad
fallen in head foremost, and the surrounding
brink of sand quickly falling in, and settling
around her ; and the not having Btrergth, or
presence of mind enough to extricate herself,
was quickly smothered to death, The cries of
the little loy, attracted some passers by, who
found the little girl lifeless.
It is stated that the father had been absent
but a blioi t while from the children ; end, as the
body was warm w hen found, this is possibly
one of those instances, wherein medical skill, if
promptly applied, might bare saved a human,
