jeweler ami watchmaker, on Mer

fc (Jo's. It was found alive on the
beach at Waikiki, on Monday, by a
native. It is oval in shape, and
uiuch broader at the he-id than any-'
where else. It is about 7 in. long
and 1 iu thickness. It has no bones,
upptu entry. It has n big mouth,
from tliu upper lip of which projects
a. thin tendon or spine, with a thick
development at the end, which was
probably used to attract its food by
moving it to and fro. It lias only
white spots as rudiments of, eyes. It
has a lin above and another below
the tail, and both very close to it.
On its body are small shells nnd
coralline substances, so that it pro
bably lived a very inactive life. , Jts
stomach is flattened, and apparently
it rebted on it, and then looked much
like a rock. But the most curious part
about it arc four tins, shaped like
legs and feet, two in front and two
behind its stomach. The fore fins
or legs have five divisions or fingers,
and the hind ones ten. The hind
ones also appear to have bent legs
under the skin, which were capable
of movement. So far, no one that
has seen it, has ever seen or heard
of :i lisli with four legs, like this, be

The road still skirls the lagoon,
alternately rising over abrupt ledges
and descending into narrow gulches. ,
We pass some very Hue springs of
clear cold water on Mr. Bobiiison's
property, just on the edge of the
road. Further on the ubiquitous
Chinaman has reclaimed the swamps
from their crop of bulrushes, and
substituted the useful rice. "We are

of the bottom of the loch. It- s, ex

loamy soil, which extends down
wards with a varying depth of 1 to
about 4 or 5 feet. Below this comes
a hard brownish soil, like flic hard
pan known to miners. This is some
20 feet in thickness and sometimes
more. Below this again is a narrow
stratum of limestone or coral, show
ing a clear while seam from 1 to 2
feet thick, which contrasts 6trongly'
with the deep brown ofi the. soil
above and below. Wc were inform
