'If:f!iii!iiM us wc'IJ as of the foreign

port (hive nuwpapers in tlioir own
language, each with an edition of
from three to four thousand copies
weekly. Among the foreigners, hc
uides the three weeklies and Un (aa
yet juvenile) dailies, a very large
number of the standard newspapers
of the- United Stales and England
are taken by regular subscribers,
either through the mail or from
news agents, besides eonsidcralilo
quantities of the leading monthlies
and periodicals. Go where you may
on these islands, cither in the towns,
on the plantations, or in the remote
and scattered bcttlemcnts, you will
bo sure to find a good supply of
readiim matter. As a very neces
sary consequence, our people arc
intelligent and well-informed upon
all matters of general interest, and
in regard to what is going on in the
wo -Id at large in this wonderful nine
teenth century, to a degree that wo
venture to say is not to he found in
any other community, in proportion
to its size. All this is encouraging
tolhe newspaperman, as lie delves
at his tread-mill occupation.
And this brings us to remark, that
our thanks are due to an appreciative
public for the encouragement which
the Daily Bulletin has already re
ceived. Our subscription list, since
the date of enlargement, has increas
ed nearly fifty per cent., and our ad
vertising patronage lias correspond
ingly grown. We can only say that
we bhall spaie no pains to ensure a
continuance of the public favor.

Tin: Noiival. By the next arriv
al from the Coast we shall expect to
hear news of the missing boat of this
ship, an account of the burning of
which we published last month. It
has been surmised by "old salts"
on the beach, that the Norval, being
an iron ship, would be likely to drift
after the fire had burned out, and
from her position when abandoned,
and tho "known tend of currents in
this ocean, the hulk would be likely
to be found somewhere to the North
East of these Islands. It is to be
hoped, however, that it has gone to
the bottom, rather then to remain
above water to be butted against on
a dark night by some passing ship.
Wo may expect to sec a large
gathering this evening at the open
ing of the Loan Exhibition. Tickets

ance in all thins; also in his (state

would prove a dead letter, because
wc have not the proper kind of a
Police Derailment to enforce the
law, as there would be lots of moon
shiners, there arc now for the mat
ter of that, and they are not sup
pressed. The physician would need
spirits in his practice, unless the law
intends to do away with allopathy
and substitute homeopathy; the
druggists also will be deprived of
tho article, and last but not least,
the churches, for how can they uso
a forbidden aiticleV These arc only
a few of the reasons why prohibition
will not work.
I think the acts of Government
oflicials of Tahiti could be copied
here, and would apply to all, viz. :
grant licenses to whoever apply for
them which should bo doubled
here impose a heavy flue on all who
sell without a license, one-half of
the fine to the informer ; if an in
toxicated man enters a place where
spirits arc sold, the owner shall be
prohibited from selling him anj' ; if
a policeman sees a drunken man he
takes him to the Station House, and
he is at once fined four dollars ; if he
pay, and staggeisout, he is brought
back and another four dollar line
assessed ; and this is kept up until
the man is broke or sober, which
makes a drunken spree too costly to
be often indulged in.
I think the above very much bet
ter than a prohibitory law, as this
can lie enforced and the latter
jix lino, on inursttay last, an aci
cident occurred on the railroad track.
A car, containing some 15 Chinese
laborers, got beyond control on a
down grade and jumped the track.
One laborer killed outright and a
