THIS DAY'S DOINCS.
Kxeelsior Lodge, I.O.O.F., 7:30.
Rible Class at Lyceum at 7 :30.
Hardly anything in Honolulu has
undergone so much improvement
during the past twelvemonths as our
streets and roads. Yet they arc not
by any means beyond criticism. Of
what has been done, though it is a
great improvement on the former
condition 'of things, much is still
behind the best work of other coun
tries. The laic rains have shown
that the macadamizing has been
imperfect as ruts and holes arc
worn at irregular intervals and in
places not caused by the wear and
tear of tralllc alone. No doubt this
is partly duo to the atmospheric
eroMou but more is due to the im
"What we need in this direction is,
first, a more careful selection and
assortment of the broken stone, so
that the layers of it placed on the
roads shall be, as nearly :is possible,
each composed of a uniformly-sized
stone; secondly we want the streets
more accurately and systematically
graded and the storm-water chanuels
made deeper and more capable of
carrying off the great quantity of
water after a rain.
When these things arc attended to
systematically and with a set puipose
and our sidewalks made level and of
equal width, the streets of Honolulu
may be compared with those of any
other city in the world of equal size
without any feeling of shame.
It is because we have seen during
the past twelvemonth such evidence
of attention in these directions that
we make these remarks to encourage
the authorities to proceed in this
BARBERS AND BUTCHERS-THEIR
Yesterday afternoon we strolled
through the Chinese quarters of the
city to sec for ourselves their mode
of living and occupations or trades.
Starting up JMauuakea street the
first noticeable feature was the num
All of which were well patronized
by cleanly and woulcl-bc-closcly-bhaven
Johns who were desirous of
presenting a goodly appearance on
their great day of dominoes. The
ease and rapidity with which the
customers were put through was
marvelous and cries of next were
heard with unparalleled rapidity.
Their method of operation is similar
to that of foreign barbers, yet John
presents a ludicrous appearance
when the top of his head as well as
his face is enveloped in soap, Up
and down the street, one was forci
bly reminded of the old Music Hall
song " Lather and Shave 'em, La
ther and Shave 'em, . Lather and
Shave 'em, Slather-a-wack."
were doing a roaring trade in roast
pork, pickled pork, boiled pork,
baked pork, and every other kind of
pork. Nearly all of them went the
"whole hog" in cooking, and, as
the animal was hanging with his
luscious brown like crackling from
which the appetite-giving iumes
uroubed the feelings of our inner
man, we could sec that though
cooked whole he was thoroughly
done, both literally and emphatic
ally, literally he was done to the
bone, and emphatically he was done
for by the anxious open-mouthed
customers. Hogs disappeared with
rapidity as did all other kiuds of the
barbarous butchers' stock in trade.
TIIKllt GOOD GOD.
A new temple or joss house has
recently been opened down a little
ally way in a pretty vcraudahed cot
tage. On entering with the high
priest, whoso wife and family live
close by, the Jlrbt object seen was
Quau Tul, The Chinese Good Man
or God. This is a llgurc seated in a
throne canopied with golden hang
ings and expensively and exquisitely
lilted up. A small oil lamp is kept
burning day and night so that he
shall not be left in utter darkness
lest there should be weeping and
gnashing of teeth. In front of
Quau Tai and all around him arc
highly polished tin vessels, bamboo
vases, lanterns and other curious
oriental containers which hold the
fragrant joss sticks. Some oblong
pieces of wood used by the worship
pers when praying arc placed con
spicuously on the front table and in
an obscure corner is a small Joss
who waits to be worshipped. Gol
den candle sticks, lumps of liquid
ruby wax and two suspicious looking
bottles complete the furniture of the
room with the exception of the
Celestial texts in their quaint letter
ings which hang profusely on the
Chinamen arc allowed to enter
and worship when they please and
one of their great advantages is that
no man " goes round with the hat."
It is a strange feature of Asiatic life
and one well worth seeing by those
who have not studied the habits and
characters of our Chinese brethren
and fellow citizens.

The Advertiser yesterday made some
remarks on the subject of hacks which
were correct and some more on the hack
policeman which were nob correct. He
is said by it to own hacks. He would
feel grateful ithcy could show him
which ones it is that lie has a right to, m
that he could get some returns from hie
property in them: Further, many of the
places where hackmen congiegate are
legal stands for them. It they block up
the road that is the duty of the tho regu
lar police to regulate. It is not an
offence against the regulations which he
is charged with the enforcing of.
Mr. Macleay was of opinion that
it is only by penetrating the island
from the head of the gulf or some
point further west that its real
character and conformation can be
ascertained; and he pointed out that
an expedition fitted with steam
launches, and accompanied by
scientific men whoso duty it would
be to investigate the mineral
resources of the country, and report
upon the value of its vegetable pro
ductions, could be associated with a
surveying party for the complete
survey of the south coast of the
island. This he thought should
precede annexation or settlement ; he
wrote, "I am convinced, from what
I have seen of the races inhabiting
New Guinea, that any; thing which
would appear like a permanent occu
pation of the country, or any part of
it, would be violently opposed. Both
of the races found in Ndw Guinea
are extremely jealous of their terri
torial rights, aud a war with either
of them would be a serious matter.
The Papuans would make very
formidable and determined enemies,
and the yellow 'race, thought not
very formidable as fighting men, are
very numerous, and it would pro
bably bo found necessary for the
safety of a settlement to drive thou
sands of these poor rjeople away from
their'villages and plantations." All
labour required by colonists, ho said,
would have to be imported, paid for,
and protected, for assuredly no help
could bo obtained from the natives.
"The black race could not be induced
to work, and the light-coloured peo
ple could only be utilised under a
system of compulsion which would
never be tolerated iu a country under
