There was successfully lauded from the Ltika

Class. They are now moored at fhe Fish Market,

have been named Intrepedio, YXgilanie, and Terror
of Chili. They draw as much water as they can
drink out of a medium sized bucket, and at close
quarters would do fearful execution. Just how
they managed to escape the clutches of the Chilians
is shrouded in mystery ; but it is surmised that
they were smuggled out of the country as samples
of a strong kind of butter.

ever attaining their independence again. The

The Honolulu Athletic Association has nearly
completed the first year of its existence. Its first
annual meeting is announced for Friday next.
Started amidst much enthusiasm it soon after
wards, as almost everything of the sort does in
Honolulu, began to languish. The bubble enthu
siasm burst. Divided counsels threatened to
destroy its usefulness and a general apathy to
render its existence for so long a time as would
bring round even the first annual meeting very
problematical. Happily there were some men on
the directory of the association, who do not like to
be beaten even if success involve some trouble.
Money has been found, a gymnasium has been built,
and the association will hold its meeting on Friday
in its own hall. It is to be hoped that there will
be a good attendance, and that the nextVear will
see as much good practical work done in utilizing
the institution as haseen done during the past
year in preparing it for a career cf usefulness.
Br the arrival of the Australia, the apprehen
sions of the public concerning the overdue Suez
were intensified by the information that she left
San Francisco ou her regular day, and had all
gone right she would have arrived here on Wednes
day, the 17th. Being now 10 days overdue, it is
feared her machinery has broken down aud the ves
sel thereby disabled, having but little canvas to
spread, and which would only be of service in case
of a fair wind. It is reassuring, however, to learn
from the Australia's report that fine weather was
experienced by her throughout the passage,
but as the Suez left six days previously, it is
possible that the latter veisel encouutered'a touch
of the bad weather experienced off these Islands
from the 13th to the 16th instant inclusive. When
it is known that the bark Hermann was 10 days,
and the clipper bris W. H. Dimond, 5 days in sijjht
of the Islands, without being able to make their
respective ports, it can easily be understood that
the Suez might possibly be within a few hundred
miles of her destination and unable to make head
way as long as the present light airs and baffling
winds continue. In view of such being the case,
the agents and others interested in the vessel, her
passengers and crew, have thought fit to
dispatch two of onr inter-island steamers
in search of her. The Kilauea Hou and the C. R.
Bishop sailed 011 Wednesday last in search of the
Suez. Amongst the passengers known to be
on board the Suez are Mrs. Atherton, Mrs. Gil
man, Mrs. A. W. Bush and familv, Mr. and Mrs.
S. C. Damon and family, H. P. Poor, Mr. W. O.
Smith and Mr. Selig.
Meeting of the Judges and Members of
the Bar. 1
At 11 a.m. on Thursday a meeting of the Bench
and Bar of Honoluluwas held in the Supreme
Court for the purpose of passing certain resolu
tions iu reference to the death of the late Chief
Justice Allen. His Honor, Chief Justice JudJ,
and Associate Justices McCully and Austin oc
cupied the Bench. The members of the Bar
present were : HirEx. E. Preston the Attorney
General, A. S. Hartwell, John Russell, F. M.
Hatch, Cecil Brovn, R. F. Bickerton, 3- B.
Dole, W. R. Castle, J. M. Davidson, J. M. Mon
sarrst, L. A. Thurston, J. W. Kalua, J. L. Kau
lukou, John Kalama, and W. L. Holokahiki.
There were also present His Excellency W. M.
Gibson, Minister of Foreign Affairs ; His Ex
cellency J. E. Bash, Minister of the Interior ;
Hon. J. M. Kapena, Hon. W. L. Green, Hon.
j. S. Walker, Auditor-General; II. W. Severance,
Esq., Hawaiian Consul at San Francisco ; and
Mons. Feer, French Commissioner and Consul
General. The Attorney-General rose and presented the
fallowing resolutions :
1. That the Members of this Bar have heard
with extreme pain and .regret of the sudden and
lamentable death of the Honorable Elisha H. Allen,
late Chief Justice and Chancellor of this Kingdom,
and His Majesty's Miaister Resident in the United
States of America.
2. That by such death His Majesty has lost a
faithful and devoted Servant, who, during the
whole of his official life, whether on the Bench or
otherwise, commanded .the respect of all classes in
3. That we sincerely condole with the family of
the deceased in the great loss they have sustained.
4. That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded
to the family of the deceased.
5. That these resolutions be entered of record
iu the Journals of the Supreme Court.
The Attorney-General said it was twelve years
since he first had the honor to practice at the
bar before the late Chief Justice Allen. During
the time that be occupied the bench be was
always kind, indulgent and faithful. They
missed him when he left the country; but it was
pleasant to know that he went away for the good
of the Kingdom. At the time of his death be
was assisting and aiding in the matter of the Re
ciprocity Treaty for the benefit of the country.
He had presided for more that seventeen years
in the court, during which time he bad won the
confidence of ths community. No one ever said
one word disparagingly of him. A more up
right or conscientious Judge never sat on the
bench of any country.
The Chief Jctstick made the followng remarks:
Brethren, The members of the Supreme
Court have beard with sorrow of the death of
Judge Allen. As Chief Justice of this Court for
nearly twenty years, it is fitting that we should
show our respect to his memory. We fully
sympathise with the resolutions presented by
the Attorney-General. My acquaintance with
him extended over many years a large part of
my life and we were on the Bench together
from the beginning of the reign of the present
Sovereign to the 1st of February, 1877, the date
of Judge Allen's resignation. He was a cool
headed, temperate, pure man, enjoying social
and domestic life, the circumstances of which
were, in bis case, peculiarly happy.
He always enjoyed the confidence of the
Sovereigns of this country while' presiding over
the Department of Justice during four successive
reigns, and was the recipient of high honors
from them as well as from the people of this
country. As a Judge, his perceptive faculties
were keen, and a good knowledge of fundamental
'l? " T 1rrrcceasul Medina sandstoue, Clinton shale, Niagara shal
law made his careeT as a jrfbg&YWfKC..- ...t..,eSalt group, Helderberg limestone
one. It was his good fortune to live in times I aild iTmvsT(Tt,f",,fL r.nnr.v
when the business of this Court afforded him
that leisure which is so great an assistant to
mature and calm deliberation. His kind dis
position and anable manner won for him many
friends, and he can truly be said to have had no
I he history 01 the Kingdom of late years is a
record of bis success as a diplomatist, especially
in securing the Treaty with the United States,
by which the prosperity of this country has been
established, and his sudden death in a critical
period in the history of that Treaty is most
lamentable. But bis long life has now closed by
the inevitable event of death. But few of us
may expect to live out the four score years to
which he had nearly attained, but wnat was good
in him we may well emulate.
The clerk will enter the resolutions in the
Journal of the Court.
Mr. II abtwkll said bis acquaintance wiUa Judge
Allen began in 1868 as an associate upon the
Bench, together with Mr. James W. Austin, now
in Boston. The Attorney-General was correct
in saying that Judge Allen had the confidence of
this community, and of all who knew him. His
impartiality, his desire to allow no bias of any
kind to affect his judgment, his absolute firm
ness was one of his distinguishing traits. Born
in 1S04 at Greenfield, Massachusetts, he entered
political life early, going to Congress in 1840,
defeating Hannibal t Hamlin, of Maine, as an
opposing candidate, who in turn defeated him in
1812. lie afterwards came te Honolulu as a
successor to Mr. Severance in the office of United
States Minister, from which place he succeeded
Chief Justice Lee upon the Bench of this Court.
He was fond of political life, and always ap
peared to good advantage there on account of
his conciliatory ways. The , Judge never im
pressed one so much as a profound jurist, who
made an exact study of legal science, as a man in
whose firmness and integrity all could safely
rely. He gave so much of his time for many
years to public affairs that he naturally could
not engross himself so much with examining
abstract principles of law.
Mr. Allen always liked to do and say pleasant
things ; he seemed to me to dislike to pass a
sentence in a criminal case, or to order judgment
against anyone. We all remember his cordial
greeting whenever we entered his presence, his
friendly enquiries after our interest. This was
not due to mere animal spirits, for he was not
a robust or hardy man; it was due to his kindli
ness of heart.
Another strong characteristic of the man was,
that although he might not always exhibit as
much push or what some call energy, as others
may show, he.did not 'do things merely for the
sake of doing something, he was not a man to
make mistakes. He never over-did, or did
anything uselessly. In this regard ie was par
ticularly valuable as a public man. He was an
excellent politician, and must have impressed
public men favorably. As Dean of the Diplo
matic corps in Waahingtoa, he held a dignified,
honorable place, for which he was well qualified,
and he leaves a vacancy which this country can
not easily supply.
It is no light thing to say of any man, without
eulogy, as all can sincerely say of Judge Allen,
that he was a man of absolute purity and in
tegrity. That we all say and we all believe.
His Excellency the Pbemieb said : May it
please your Honor, Although this is a meeting
of the Bench and the Bar to render honor to a
departed brother, it is fitting that I, as an officer
of the Government in official relations with
the departed, should speak. The country has
received a serious blow iu the loss of the de
parted Minister and statesman. I had an inti
mate opportunity to- know his eminent value as
the representative of this country in the United
States. You have all seen so much in the
American press setting forth the great considera
tion entertained for Minister Allen. It may be
said a great foreign nation has mourned for
him. Her chief public officers closed their fes
tivities to do honor to his memory, and a repre
sentative of her President and Cabinet accom
panied his remains to their last resting place.
I had the honor to receive yesterday a dis
patch from His Excellency the Minister Resi
dent near our Court, in which was conveyed the
personal expressions of regard and of condolence
of the President of the United States. How
earnest and marked has this regard been mani
fested. A regard that I feel could only be
awakened by superior personal character. The
weight of years was no hindrance to the value of
the services of Minister Allen to this country.
It was not necessary that he should be active,
pushing, or lobbying. When he knocked at the
door of a President of the United States or a
Secretary of State, it was readily opened, and
his lightest word received the most courteous
attention. Such was the effect of his weight of
The departed ..Minister reflected honor upon
the State he sf :d. His service was marked
with ability to me very last. All the circum-
stances of his life and official position inspire
our most profound esteem, and with the pro
fouudest sentiments of my heart, I join in the
sad privilege of doing honor to the departed
statesman, judge, and friend.
Mr. Jcbtice Apste? made a few eulogistic re
marks, and the meeting adjourned,
Last evening Professor Hitchcock, under
the auspices of the Y. M. C. A., delivered a
lecture at the Lyceum, his subject being
"Niagara FalLj. This was the first of a
series of lectures relating to geology. The
object of this lecture was to give a definition
of the science of geology. The subject was
treated in an able manner, and by the kind
courtesy of the lecturer we are enabled to
lay before our readers the following
The Niagara River is only 36 miles long, con
necting Lakes Erie and Ontario along the bound
ary between the United States and Canada. It
is of enormonsjdimensions, however, 100.000,000
tons of water pour over the precipice every hour,
to the average depth of 160 feet above the sur
face of the stream beneath, to the bottom of the
river it may be as much more. Looking down
upon it as from a balloon, we can see the whole
course of the stream, with its rapids. Whirlpool
and quiet flow. By so doing, as is shown in the
diagram, we find the ceuntry to be an elevated
plateau, nearly 600 feet above ths ocean. The
edge of the plateau is the highest portion of it.
as it slopes southerly. I will present a few
figures for convenience of description.
From Lake Erie, above, near Buffalo.it is 22,
miles to the Falls.
Length of the gorge or canon below the Falls
to Lewiston, it is 7 miles. .
From Lewiston to Lake Outario, it is Zx
miles. Total 3G miles.
Elevation of Lake Erie. 573 feet above the
From the Lake to the Rapids 13 feet descent
Rapids (si-mile long) - 51
Cataract - - - 164
Lake Ontario is 245 feet above the ocean and
328 feet below Lake Erie.
The Fall is divided by Goat Islaud, giving
what is called the American Fall upon the east,
1200 feet wide aud 161 feet deep, and the
Canadian or Horseshoe Fall, 2400 feet wide and
15S feet deep.
The river is 3 miles wide, at 2 miles above
the Falls, aud 400 fet-1 :it the Whirlpool, mid
way iu the gorge. The river has therefore been
gaining in width from the mouth of the gorge
to the Falls.
The edge of the plateau has been called the
Niagara escarpment. It is a precipice facing
Lake Ontario, and may be traced a3 much as
200 miles through New York and Canada.
The rocks composing it are finely shown in
the gorge. The materials lie in their original
borizoutal position where they were laid down
in the primeval ocear. being composed partly
of beach sand, partly of mud and partly of
coral rock. Having been cut through by the
Niagara River, it will be easy for U3 to examine
their nature, upon either bank. As these rocks
have a wide extension, they have been carefully
studied and we know their thickness entirely
through the gorge, and have collected the differ
ent sorts of corals and sea shells distributed
through them. It would be like studying the
beach and ooral reef at Honolulu. Special
names have been given to the rocks as shown
upon the diagram.
They are tjae Niagara limestone at the top.
20 feet at the escarpment, increasing to 164 at
the Falls, of this quite a large part rises above
the river. Next is the Niagara shale, 82 feet
thick. The first was the coral reef; second, a
marine iaud, and others are the only rocks ex
posed at the Falls. Below,in the cliff, we notice
the Clinton shale, 20 feet thick, and the Medina
red sandstone, 350 feet thick making a total of
675 feet at the cliff.
In proceeding from Lake Ontario to Lake
Erie othergroups are seen above the falls, as
shown upon the diagram the whole in their
order from below! upwards being as follows':
Now we can understand whatJy jfh I Committee, claiming that it was purely a
at Niagara. With a plateau inclined to theSuJ.'- '.,. -,- d commercial question. After
it is clear, there must
have been at first a lake
behind it. lue waters irom the various rivers
in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Canada
would fill up the basin to its very edge. At
Lewiston there would seem to be a slight de
pression where the water would begin to dis
charge and here the Niagara began to run.
Presently the rock would disappear and the
gorge begin to be excavated, then commenced
the gradual falling of the water over the cliff,
pounding, hammering the rocks below and
washing out the pulverized material into the
lower lake. The common opinion is that the
falls had an existence as distinct as to-day when
the wearing action commenced, and that the
cataract has gradually cut its way back for
several miles at the rate of one foot annually,
thus requiring a period of about 35,000 years
for its ai-coniplishmeut. As fast as the falls
receded the great lake would become drained
for the cliff is 350 feet high while the present
cataract only 160. It seems a very simple mat
ter to accept this general conclusion but there
are several facts going to show a great many
steps in this progress. First, we have to con
sider that the existence of a cataract in a canon
is an exception to the usual method of erosion.
You have heard of the immense canons of the
western United States of hundreds of miles of
gorges, but no cataracts like Niagara. The
descent is greater and yet Niagara has hardly its
" double " Jin any part of the world. A river
will naturally wear a uniform channel in a
plateau country. If the rock varies in char
acter then the gorge will wear faster in the soft
places. If the softer rock is found at the lower
part of the river there may be a cataract where
the bard rock joins it. That is the case at the
present Niagara. The overlying limestone is
quitejhavd uud the shale beneath is very soft,
and the rate of excavation of the top just bal
ances the pounding of the soft shale beneath,
and thus the recession is uniform at present.
Now on recurring' to our diagrams we can see
where variations might have existed. The bot
tom rocks at Lewiston are much harder than
those above. The Niagara shale and limestone
are found at the top just as now at the falls.
Hence a cataract might follow these two layers
back at nearly constant rate. But the two lower
layers are of unequal hardness, the lowest being
the most unyielding. Hence there may have
been three different cataracts in early times,
cutting back at unequal rates of speed. The
first would be in the upper shale and limestone,
the second iu the Clinton shale, and the third in
the bard red sandstone. In the Genesee river,
which runs parallel to the Niagara several miles
to the east, over the same rocks, there are three
corresponding falls. Now as these rocks all
incline southerly, the lower layers presently
pass below the line of erosion, and hence the
two lower falls will disappear after a while,
leaving only the upper cataract, and we can
know of their existence only by the process of
reasoning employed above.
Another peculiarity is shown by the existence
of the Whirlpool. The river changes its course
abruptly at this point, and it is very much nar
rower below. The water is very swift, and any
floating object may rush with railroad speed
around it for days before passing out bftjow.
The residents fear the Whirlpool as much as
they do the rapids, and will not venture so much
as to put hand or foot into the water at either
locality for fear of being drawn in.
On scrutinizing the walls of the Whirlpool we
find a part of it composed of sand and gravel,
and on looking further discover the outlines of
an ancient gorge filled up with earth running to
St. David's, a distance of three miles. I under
stand this ancient gorge corresponds in width
with the wider part of the ebani above the
Whirlpool. Here is an additional fact in the his
tory of Niagara, and it indicates the former dis
cbarge of the waters at St. David's instead of at
Lewiston.and it explains the origin of the W birl
pool. The old channel became choked with de.
tritus, and when the river could run again it was
unable to clear its channel below the Whirlpool,
and therefore excavated the narrow gorge in the
lower part of its course, already described.
Quite a number of strange (acts are therefore
necessitated by this discovery. The Niagara
bezan to excavate at St. David's instead of
Lewiston. Next, some changed conditions cov
ered the region with water as at- the first. This
water must have been fresh, because shells such
as live iu lakes are distributed through this sand;
so there must have been another lake period when
the old channel was filled up too high to be
cleaned out by the later river. No doubt this
old channel could be resuscitated, if it were an
object to do so, by washing out the sand.
The lecturer next described a wonderful an
cient channel across the plateau in Canada, dis
covered only recently by Professor Spencer, and
presented the theory that Lakes Erie and Huron
did not exiBt then; that this ancient Niagara river
flowed through these two lakes and joined Lake
Ontario at its extreme western angle. The latter
lake may have been a river also. This period
must have preceded the time of the St. Davids
channel, because the natnre of the material filling
the more western ratino was introduced by the
glaciers of the ice ape, while the eand in the
latter seems to have been silted in after the ice
In continuing the study of the Niagara rocks
it was said that the several layers of solid rucks
indicated several long periods in the Paleozoic
history of the earth. At the top is a coral reef,
overlaying a soft marine mud, a harder eiliccoua
mud and a 6audy beach. These deposits indicate
the presence of the ocean for many thousand
years, and the operation of agents similar to
those familiar to all Hawaiian at the present
day in the harbor of Honolulu.
By boring several hundred feet beneath this red
sandstone other marine rocks of various descrip
tions would be found, full of relics ot life and
not unlike those already described. These rest
upon an altogether different class of rocks those
related to granite which in their turn bad pass
ed through long processes of formation.

rocks, enumerated in the reverse order of occur
rence.tbe latest being mentioned first.

These figures do not attempt to even approxi
mate to the truth, but to impress upon our
minds the fact that geology requires us to believe
in the existence of the earth during an immense
period of time previous to the age of man.

San Fbanxisco, Januar3" 16fh, 1883.
The Hawaiian Reciprocity Treaty still
hangs back at Washington. Some days ago
the House Committee on Foreign Affairs,
which has charge of the Treaty called upon
the State and Treasury Departments for in
formation on the subject, ami it was then
iutimated by members of the committee
that the news advanced by those depart
ments would have a strong influence upon
the action of the committee. The Treasury
was of course called upon to speak for the
revenue aspect of the question, while the
Department of State was consulted with
a regard to its political bearings, as the
question of British influence might enter
largely into the consideration of the ques
tion. In diplomatic circles the rumoi was
that the abrogation of the treaty would be
at once followed by the acceptance by the
Hawaiian Government of the terms of re
ciprocity offered by England or Japan. The
State Department has sent to the commit
tee the required information, but at present
the committee holds the communication as
It is understood that Secretary Freling
huysen strongly protests against the abro
gation of the treaty, but suggests Its modi
fication by the abolition of the color test of
sugar and the fixing of the dutiable limit
according to the saccharine quality under a
new treaty. The committee discussed the
matter yesterday, but laid it over until next
Tuesday, when a special meeting will be de
voted to its consideration.
Last week the Senate indirectly expressed
itself regarding the treaty by referring to
the Finance Committee a resolution in favor
of its abrogation. Senator Miller of Cali
fornia, who favors the treaty, wanted it re
ferred to the Committee on Foreign Rela
tions, on the ground that diplomatic con
siderations were involved. Jones of Louisi
ana and others, who desire its abrogation,
wanted the resolution referred to the Finance

Meantime the prepared ltec,rrwer;T
Treaty with Mexico comes into the que'&i
tion. There seems to have been some
funny business " about this treaty. It Is
reported that General Grant and Henor
Romero "representing the United States
and Mexico respectively, have stolen a
march on the Press and public by fixing up
a treaty quietly between themselves which
is all cut and dried and ready to be acted
upon. Among other things it is alleged
that the treaty reports the objectionable
feature of the Hawaiian Treaty (to the
sugar men that is) by admitting sugars
freeofdnty, and that iu this Mexico, like
Hawaii, will get the advantage of the
United States. Further rumor regarding
this treaty is that Grant has worked it with
a view to consulting the interests of Jay
Gould, of whom he is but the agent. Gould
is interested in the struggle for the control
of the rapidly increasing railroad interests
of Mexico. The railroad schemes opposed
to Gould are subsidized by the Mexican
Government. Gould has no subsidy, and
he argues that by making a Reciprocity
Treaty, Mexico will be deprived of any
revenue by which to pay subsidies, thus
killing off Gould's rivals.
The House has passed the Shipping Bill,
which is expected to give relief to Ameri
can commerce, and the Senate has passed
the Civil Service Reform Bill. Both moves
in a good direction, though only compara
tively satisfactory in their scopes.
A fiery epidemic has swept over the
world. Last Tuesday night the Newhall
House, at Milwaukee, a six-storied flre-trai-burned
down, and over eighty persons,
guests and employees of the house, were
either consumed in the flames or dashed to
death on the pavement in Jumping from
the windows. Yesterday the well-known
Planters House at St. Louis was partly
burned, several emploj'ees being killed and
fatally injured; and on the same day, in
Berdicheff, a town of Russian Poland, the
circus building took fire during a crowded
performance, and three hundred persons
perished in the flames.
The valleys of Germany and Austria
have been swept by floods within the past
week or two. The loss of life is counted by
hundreds, ana of property by millions, and
widespread destructions exists. Govern
mental aid is freely afforded, and subscrip
tions have been started in the United
States for the relief of the sufferers.
