OUR HARBOUR .
Our harbour- stnnds in groat need
of dredging. There arc many rea
sons for this, one of the chief being
the health of the city. As nmttors
stand now the whole accumulated re
fuse of the city is gradually dumped
into it, and as the entrance is nar
row it remains there without being
drawn out into the ocean. So it
goes on from year to year until it
lias become simply a gigantic cess
pool reeking with thc seeds of
disease, and only waiting for the
first opportunity of a pestilence to
decimate the city, aided by our hot
sun and moist atmosphere.
Then, if this were not enough, the
harbour is shoaling gradually, and if
something is not done in time vessels
of large draught will be unable to
enter. That this should bo so in a
city with a growing commerce, like
Honolulu undoubtedly has, is a dis
graco to the government.
"Wo belicvo that there arc dredges
and scows lying unused now in the
harbour and the Pole is surely not
engaged all, the time in towing.
Messrs. hoffschlaeger & Co.
Have, as, announced some time in
our columns, -removed their place of
business to Queen street, in tho pre
mises recently occupied by G. W.
Macfarlanc & Co. Thinking that this
would be a Bplcndid opportunity to
inspect their stock, our reporter en
tered the other morning, and as soon
as his crrand'was made known, was
courteously shown round. On the
ground floor: as you go in, at the left
band, is the counting house. The rest
of the floor space and store houses
nt the rear is taken up with the
bulkier articles imported by the firm.
Much interest, however, is not excit
ed by gazing at piles of boxes, kegs,
crates, &c, unless you cither own
thein or propose to own them. So,
leavingtlicm, wc went upstairs and
admired the elegant and complete
assortment of English, German,
French and American dry goods.
Here was everything y8u could think
of in that line, and suited for all
classes of trade. Then at intervals
n miscellaneous collection of which
a string of names but faintly-rccalls
the variety and utility. Hair-oil,
made a J'urU especially for these
islands, scents, haberdashery, re
volvers, caps, photO;albums, opera
glasses, field-glasses, marbles ; aye,
and a thousand and one other things
which we allivant when we sec, and
which wo cannot always have. A
third department is higher still, on
what might bo termed a garret floor.
On the second floor is a very elegantly
fitted private office for members of
the firm. After spending an hour or
so plcnsurably and profitably in in
telligent looking and talking our re
porter left, sincerely -wishing that
Messrs. Iloffschlacgcr & Co. would
do an increased business in their

At about 7.30 p.m. on Friday
as Mr. J. "NY. Robertson was coining

meteor rapidly approaching him
from tho "North East. "When it was
about 300 or -100 yards from him. at
a hight of perhaps a hundred feet,
it burst, dividing in three pieces
and fell to the. ground on tho flats
below Moehonun's place. No sound
was heard when it burst. Another
observer rcpoits seeing a very large
meteor from the samu diriction fall
over townids the Wnianno range

Some six years ago the Empress
of Germany announced in the Official
Gazelle, that she would henceforth
decorate with a golden cross every
female servant who had passed foi ty
years of her life in the same family.
A reccut issue of the Official Gazette
publishes a list of the' recipients of
this royal favour since 1870, and as
tney iiuinhcr !)( in these six 3'cars,
the relations between mistress and
maid in Germany must be more
satisfactory than In this country,
where a servant who stays ten years
in one family is a great rarity.
A most remarkable trial has just
taken place in St. Petersburg the
trial of a boy of thirteen for the mur
der of his father. ' The prisoner
confessed his guilt, but maintained
complete indifference during the
proceedings, and when asked what
motive had induced him to commit
the crime, simply said: "My father
prevented mo from continuing my
studies, and making for myself a
brilliant career. He also would not
allow me to read novels, and that is
why I resolved to, get rid of such a
rough uncultured father." "How
was the crime committed?" asked
the President. " One night when
my mother was out of town I crept
out of bed and went to the kitchen
for a hatchet. On my way there I
said to myself : 'My God! "What am
I about to 'do ?' But then I thought :
'Is there a god? Who can prove it?'
So I took tho hatchet and went into
1113' father's room. lie did not move,
but I opened the window to make
sure that he was asleep, and then I
struck him a blow on the head with
the hatchet. He sprang up and cried
"help!" but fell back immediately
on the ground. Then I took the
hatchet back to the kitchen, dressed
myself and went out in the morning
when I came back they told mc my
father was dead. I know that I
have done wrong, but -it can't be
