new Disease in horses.
A new disease seems to bo appear
ing amongst the horses in these
islands. On Monday, the 20th,
judge. Jilekerton gave orders that
liis valuable trotting horse, Control
ler, should be dcstioyed, as ho was
buffering fioui a disease dangerous
to both man and beast. It resem
bled glanders very much in some of
its symptoms, but was pronounced
not to be that' disease by a leading
physician here. The disease is ap
parently one known to vctciinary
surgeons as Ozena. Wc-also learn that
another horse afflicted with every
symptom of the disease has been
turned out by its owner to pasture.
As the disease is contagious and
dangerous to both men aud animals
such conduct is highly reprehensible.
''Controller's trotting record was
an excellent one, as some years ago
in California he trotted 20 miles
straight' in less than an hour, and
afterwards 10 miles, in 27miu. 27
sec, and again beating. this. record
by doiug'the 10 miles in 27min. 23J
Bet. Controller was imported hero
by Mr. McWaync, and bought from
him by Judge Bickcrton, in ,whosc
possession he has remained ever
since. He was very kind and gen
tle, notwithstanding his great speed,
and it is no doubt a great loss to
Mr. Bickcrton, that he has been
compelled to destroy him. The
Judge deserves the thanks of the
entire community for, in as far as in
him lay, endeavoring to stamp out
this 'dread ' disease, although at a
great pecuniary loss to himself.

its courbc and docs not seem to
yield to any treatment. ' r
On Monday, the 2Cth, orders were
given to destroy the horse and a
post mortem examination was made,
-which showed that the ulcers extend
ed up the nostrils nearly to the brain
cavity, and, had perforated the sep

Mr. II. J. Agncw's horse, Coqu
ette, died from double pneumonia or
lung fever about a week before
he returned from the Coast.
Thk following ought to be in
quired into by tho authorities. We
give it simply as we have heard it.
"The escaped lunatic was being
taken back to the asylum with his
hands tied behind him, and in charge
of two keepers. When they got
beyond the Reformatory School one
of them clenched his fibt and struck
the lunatic bcveral timcb behind the
car, and when remonstrated with
said he didn't care for anybody.
Yustekday morning, at about 10
6'olockJ when the Hermann' was
being unloaded off the old Custom
House wharf, her gravel ballast was
shovelled into a heap on tho wharf.
The weight was too much for the
pld rotten timbers to bear and they
gave way and sunk into the harbour,
taking with them sonic 50 tons of
gravel and some bricks just being
unloaded from the' Irwin. About
12 or 15 feet in length of the whole
wharf is gone.
Ycstciday at 0 a. in., a little girl
and boy belonging, to a Hawaiian
named Kapule weie playing in tho
road niauka of the Government
Buildings. They found a gun car
tridge and were playing with it, ham
mering it with a piece of wood, when
it exploded. The little girl freceived
severe injuries to her lef eye and
face and the little boy was injuted
in the hand and leg. The wood was
blown to pieces.- The childicu were
put under Dr. McGrcw's care.
A Country Bide.
Probably many of our readers
have never been down to Pearl River,
aud a little description of the place
will be interesting to them.
Leaving Honolulu behind us with
the What Cheer House, on King
street, we first come to Kalihi, hav
ing passed over as good n road as
there is in the Kingdom. After Ka
lihi, still travelling on fair road, we
come to bonie rice plantations a.
Kahauikij and then to the overhang
ing trees at Moanalua. From this
point the road is in a much worse
condition than the Jirst part.
Leaving Moanalua the road now
pa&ses aloug the side of a high flat
topped hill, and just overhangs a
narrow gorge, thiough which a
slowly over its pearly bed.
groves of cocoanuts and bread-fruit
encircle the houses and break the
monotonous aspect of the hill-side.
But although all is beautiful tho
timid passenger does not enjoy his
hoisc literally clambering up a steep
rock right in the pathway, knowing
that if he (dips or swerves too much
to one side both will be dashed in
pieces on tho rocks bclpw. But na
tive horses are exticmcry sure-footed
and everything is safely passed.1
After a mile or so of this winding in
and out uround the side of tho hill
w o coujc to a spot wjicrc tin original
genius has made a road. He evi
dently had hpard or thought that
paving a load wjth rock was a good
way (o make it last, and he did so.
Unfortunately his knowledge didn't
vtcid to Uiv fact- tmt the rocks
ought to be levelled and placed close
together, so that for a few hundred
yards you travel over whntisi cobble
stone pavement would be -if the
cobblestones weie from C to 18
inches acros1!, with knobs rising in
Uic'nicaiid carefully set from one?
to three inches apatt. As an inter
esting piece of mosaic or an ever
lasting monument of tlie contriver's
genius tho thing is an unapproach
able success, but as a good passable
road for ttalllc tho less said about,
it the better.
After getting over this " ancient
Roman pavement" wo icaeh the
cicsl of the hill, and looking down
sec for the first time the beauties of
the Peat 1 River valley. Far to our
right the valley stretches up amongst
the ancient purple hills, levelling in
their beauteous nppnrcl of peacpek
greens and morning blues. Tho
misty peaks seem enshrouded in
vails of tiansparcnt azure samite,
which the lays of the sun tinges with
all the hues known to painter or
" Fair Dreamland " seems to have
its home here, in reality, and wc can
hardly credit that this is not a
vision. Slowly drawing our eyes away
from) this feastfof'beauty and loveli
ness wc scan the course of the
valley, noting tho eccentric shapes
of the foot-hills and the lovely car
pet of grass which hides everything,
even tho beds of the winter water
courses. Here and there, where the
rain has washed ,off this grassy
covering and blipped it gently down
into a hollow bed, the naked red of
the earth stands out in surprising
relief like gouts of blood on a gar
ment of giceiu
Right' before us the toad winds it
self to the tight and left, showing, in
all its ferruginous aud dusty ochre, a
clear bolder to the heavenly moun
tains, till itcrosses tho little bridge
at Halawa, and rising over a little hill
disappears from sight.
