Many a time people have tried to
run a regular express between here
and San Francisco, which would
admit of greater facilities and con
veniences being granted to cus
tomers than by simply sending
various articles along with the pur
sers of the steamers or as freight.
To a great extent these efforts have
hitherto beeu unsuccessful. Now,
however, Messrs Wells, Fargo, &
Co. have made such arrangements
with the O. S. S. Co. that they are
enabled to announce that they will
run a monthly express between here
and San Francisco and, later, when
the Alameda is put on, a fortnightly
one. They will convey money,
valuables, letters, parcels and pack
ages of all kinds, fresh fruit, meat,
fish, poultry, vegetables etc, safely
and with greater despatch than by
any other means. Messrs Wells
Fargo & Co. will also attend to any
orders sent them by mail and for
ward ntN earliest opportunity the
All these are great conveniences
to the public and will no doubt be
appreciated. The guarantee that
they will be carried out is the re
putation the Company has borne
all over the coast for the last 3-J or
35 years, if not more. The Hono
lulu Agent is Mr. Geo. Ashley, and
with him at present is the Travelling
Agent of the Company Mr. L.
On Thursday night the proprie
tors of the Chinsce Theatre pro
duced for the benefit of their cus
tomers a singular performance which
if it were well billed and advertised
would draw a large audience of for
eigners. In place of the usual sec
tion of a four or five days's play an
acrobatic exhibition was given. The
performer, for there was only one,
was an old, tittle, wiry man of
slender build. lie was stripped to
the waist for greater freedom of the
muscles. After making his bow to
the audience and explaining in dumb
show what he was about to attempt
he ascended a rickety platform com
posed of first, two light tables placed
side by side, measuring altogether
about six by three. On these were
stood two high four-legged scats
without backs. On top of these
aain were stood two chairs lashed
back to back thus leaving the upper
most stage of this pyramidal plat
form a thin line formed by the
backs of the chairs. To show how
rickety the ydatform was the fact
may be mentioned that it took four
Chinese to hold the whole thing
steady and prevent it coming to
pieces when he performed on it.
Having arrived at the topmost
round he went through various sum
mersaults and contortions, leaping
from one side to the other with the
utmost agility. Then still in dumb
show he explained that he had fallen
overboard from a ship and had to
swim for his life. He represented
the actions o'f a swimmer while sus
pended in mid air on his stomach.
To conclude he crawled under each
stage in his platform alternately on
his back and his face, his whole
courbo till he reached the floor being
that of ii serpentine stream doubling I
on itself twice. His next feat was a
representation of how the more
bkilful of Chinese thieves break into
a house. The incantations to his
.loss before beginning, and the va
rious devices and tricks to avoid
capture or detection were especially
interesting. In this act the Chinese
clown, called by them the Devil,
added greatly to the comic effects.
The concluding acts though were
specially wonderful, for, placing his
head in one looped rope and his feet
in another and lying face upwards
in this position at full length he
became as rigid as a bar of iron and
was swung to and fro. After fur
ther exhibitions of his skill in rope
tumbling he hung himself by his
queue to the rope and while thus
suspended carried the weight of
another man, and then represented
Buddha sitting cross-legged, a sol
dier in battle with a spear, and a
man fighting a duel with knives.
Many times during the performance
he hung suspended by the lower part
of his skull and his whole weight
resting on it. The whole perfor
mance lasted about two hours.

Tiiuhsday great amusement was had
in the Civil section of the Police Court
over a dog case. The defendant lost a
dog some 1110111118' ago. He found one
which resembled it and took possession
and the plaintiffs sued for its recovery.
The Judge rendered decision in their
favor notwithstanding the evidence of
three canine witnesses as to the family
relations of the dog in question.
Ma. J. Williams, the well-known

R. M. S. Nayczdnik, which, it will be
remembered, was in this port some
months' ago. The Captain writes from
Yokohama to say that the photograph of
His Majesty taken by Mr. Williams was,
of many he had seen in different parts
of the world, by far the best. As a proof
of his sincerity ho enclosed a remittance
and ordered !1 dozen more of bis own
