The following has been kindly
furnished us by AV. O. Smith, Esq.
who loft on the Suez on her last
trip to San Francisco, and returned
by her yesterday, and can, therefore,
be relied upon ns being correct. We
would here express our thanks in
the n.imo of our readers for the
kindly ' thoughtfulncss, which
thus enables us ttf lay before
the public of Honolulu n true nnd
faithful account of this mnttcr,
which hns interested and excited the
whole population of the country:
The Suez sailed from Honolulu
for Snn Francisco, Dec. 22nd, with
but three blndes on her propeller;
one blade having been lost on the
previous voyage from Honolulu.
After an eventful voyage she ai riv
ed in Sau Francisco, at 4 a.m., on
Sunday, Dec. 31st, on schedule
lime. On Tuesday, Jan. 9th, she
sailed for Honolulu with a full com
plement of passengers and a large
mail and cargo.
Prior to sailing the spare propel
ler and spaic piece of shaft were sent
to the Risdon Iron Works to be fit
ted, so ns to be ready on her return
The weather for the first three
days was very fair, with a smooth
sen, then the wind hnulcd to the N.
E. and was fresh, and raised the
sen. Still the wcatlicr was such as
is frequently met on this ocean.
On Saturday, the 13th, at.Gp.m.,
another blade of the propeller broke
off, leaving but two; they were
not alternate blades, but near to
gether. The jarring of the machin

The ship was kept on her course
until the next clay, bunuay,
was Diit about and headed for San
Francisco. She was then Lat. 28
N. Long. MC. W; nearly 1300
miles from San Francisco, nnd 800
miles from Honolulu,
The wind was still from thcN. E.,
nnd all sail was set, and at two p. m.
(two hours after turning back) a
rain squall struck the &hip, nnd car
ried away the top gallant mast, and
broke the forctop&ail yard in three
The squall lasted but fifteen min
utes, but was severe, after this the
fore and aft sails and foresails were
-the only available sails, nnd were
carried all the way back. The pro
peller was run at low speed, and
was favored bo as to avoid further
On Sunday evening, January 21,
one week after turning back, the
fehip anchored in San Francisco.
Tho daily run averaged 180 miles.
A notable ovent occurred on
board, on Tuesday January 10th, in
the birth to Mrs, S. M. Damon of a
son. (The subject of the nationality

At San Francisco a part of tho
cargo was discharged and the fahip
placed in the dry dock', and tho new
propeller and shaft fitted. It was
discovered that of tho two re
maining1 blades of tho old 'pro
peller, one waf badly cracked. It
was found that a flaw in, the crank
piii of the after (low presume) crank
had been opened by tho unusual
strain upon it, so that it was neces
sary to remove the crank shaft 'nnd
replace it with the spare one (carried
on board), Placing this crank shaft
detained the vessel a day longer than
had been anticipated. She finally
sailed again on Wednesday, January
81st, at 1 p,m. Tho new parts of
tho machinery were favored some
what for the first day or two put,
and Uieu fine runs were made, till
February 8th, at 12 noon, when wo
arrived at Honolulu.

We notice that the footpath or
sidewalk on Nmiamt Street just at'
the corner of Kukui place is being
repaired and good substantial slops
arc being put in place of the old
dangerous and rotten planking wliich
was tlicic before. The credit of
this is -due not to the government,
but to the private enterprise of Mr.
J. T. White.
Mr.ssns Hoffschlaegcr & Co are
about removing into the building

Mncfarlnnc.nre .'.oing. to shift into
the corner building of the Beaver

more thoroughly for Messrs Hoffscli-i
laeger the upper story has been
raised some six inches, and new pil
lars have just been put in. When
all the alterations have been comple
ted it will make one of the nicest
show rooms in town.
It seems a peculiar thing, that ves
sels registered under the Hawaiian
flag should bo measured and their
tonnage fixed by the rediculously
antiquated system in' vogue here.
It is not known in nny other civilized
country. And it bears particularly
hard upon Hawaiian vessels trading
to foreign ports as when they return
they pay their dues on tlieir tonnage,
and the difference is on oao case at
least 200 tons out of 700 a differ
ence of one-third.

Charles Derby, tho alleged leper nt
the Almshouse, is failing slowly but
suicly. He is kept solated from all
the other inmates, nnd has an atten
dant whose duty it is to wnit on him
alone. Oiic,rf ins eyes is completely
sightless, nnd tho other is gradually
becoming so, everything appearing
hazy or smoky. Ho sleeps and cats
well, but his voice is hoarse and
husky. He declares his disease is
not lcpiosy nt nil, but of another
nature, contracted sonic six or seven
years ago. lie says that ho is him
self perfectly familiar with lep
rosy in all its stages, having seen it
in the hospital in California, and
that in every instance it commences
on the hands nnd on the little finger;
that the finger loses its flexibility
and becomes numb. Dr. Mnichfield,
a Frenchman from Worcester, has
seen him and claims that the case is
simply skin humor, peculiar to the
South Sea islands, and curable. He
claims to be a relative of lUcord of
Paris, but brings no testimonials
with him. He says lie can cure
Derby. City Physician Goodall has
charge of the case at picscnt.
