tim on this occasion was an express driver who had
just got out of his vehicle to tie up the horse whilst
he breakfasted, when the mare he drives took
freight at something and bolted, choosing Fort

wheels of the express into collision with those of a
heavily loaded dray just opposite Mr. Waterhouse's
new building, she freed herself from all encum
brance but the shafts, had a good run along Mer

hurt on one of her hind feet, and was at work again
in another vehicle shortly afterwards.

Ok the evening of 13th inst., two very interesting
articles were added to the contents of tho Loan Ex
hibition. These were two series of photographs
from the studio of Messrs. J. Williams t Co. Ono
of these contained nine different pictures of th
ladies who had taken part in that pretty Exhibition
"tho Fan Drill," which had been given in tho Ex
hibition on the previous evening. Theno ladies
were so polite as to let Mr. mniams take various
pictures, illustrating at the same time their own
graces and some of the prettiest features of the
' Drill." Aa already stated nine different picture
were taken at the time by Mr. Williams, vet, with
quite remarkabla expedition, the whole were
printed, mounted, artistically ground in a hand
some frame, and put in their places in the Exhibi
tion by an early hour the same evening. Tho
largest of these pictures includes eleven figures,
the others are of smaller groups. Tho picturesque
costume adopted, and the graceful positions as
sumed, render the pictures peculiarly pleasing ;
and as they include a number of tho most admired
young ladies of our city, Mr. Williams will Ih: gind
to sec all the young men who aro, or ought to 1:,
their devoted slaves, at his studio, where they may
worship these images of the adored at their leisure.
The other group exhibited was entitled "Progres
sive Hawaiians," and is a long scries of portraits of
Hawaiian babies of white parentage. It was a very
prettv idea to bring together this "Baby Show,"
which is a series of very succcsssul pictures.
The group is still to be seen at tho Studio in Fort
street, where all mothers may spend a pleanant
half-hour in criticism ou their neighbours' trea
sures, and comparison of them with their own.
The Melbourne "Argus" thus refers to our old
friend the horse Commodore, formerly the proM.rty
of Mr. H. J. Agnew, of this city. The extract is taken
from an account ofan exhibition of trotting horse
on the new course at Elsternwick near Melbourne:
" The four imported American trotting stallion.
Boccaccio, Vermont Junior. Startle, and Young
Giant, were brought out. Boccaccio went round
the track in grand style, finishing up with a fiiK
spurt, in which he performed so grandly that the
spectators cheered him heartily. Startle, a very
handsome dark brown horse, was sent along for a
short distance, and he in turn was well el ice red.
After these celebrities had leen put throngh their
paces, the Australian-bred trotters. Captain Dear
born, Native Cat, Wanderer, and Brown Hawk,
were sent round the course. Wanderer and Brown
Hawk performing very well. The imported Ameri
can trotters, unacr anu alter ftcott ni a
steady trot, and to wind up, Mr. Robins brought
out his famous pair of American trotters, Commo
dore and Defiance. The former, who was driven
by Lis owner, is a handsome bay, more like an
English thoroughbred than the usual type of
American trotters. The pair were taken steadily
along the track, and then Commodore was h-tont
at his lst pace. For the first time most of tho.-e
on the ground saw what a really high-class Ameri
can trotter was like. As the horse flew past the
stand the spectators greeted him with a ringing
cheer of approbation. Defiance is a grand old
horse, but he was not so well handled as Commo
dore, and consequently did not show to so much

Mr. Editor, I noticed a few days ugo that

Kohala, sipped by some of my over-zealous

We referred in our issue of May 2d, to what ap
peared to be ft curio, si ty iii the way of ap)eala
made by a Chinaman namad Jvan On, in tho hope
of ob'aining a tuitiga'ion of the sentence, passed
on him for selling liquor, by the District Justice
atKapaa. Enquiry Inn elicited tho fact that ofll
cial information on the subject received in town
was defective in not specifying that the man had
lieen sentenced to three months' imprisonment as .
well as the tine of 3rt which he paid. Kan On
objects to t lie double punishment ; like tho negro
wiio'-e master when about to administer a Hogging;
preceded it by a lung lecture drawing from las
victim the pathetic uppi-al: "lassa, if floggoe,
floggee ; if pi t achee, preachoe ; brit no floggoe and
prcachee too." lie is of opinion too, that the law
docs not allow both fine and imprisonment, but
only leaves with the magistrate uu option as to.
which ho shall indict. If tho ultimate decision in
his case should show that this is the state of th&
law, it should Ik- amended. Experience seems to.
show that a line is not an adequate punishment for
the offence because it is not a deterrent, yet tho
magistrate can hardly avoid in-posing lines in.
these cases, because tho only provision for reward
ing the person who detects tho olfolioe IH tho rulfl
which allows him half tho line,
