THE WILD MAN OF Nil)
is probably a personage not unfa
miliar to some of our readers. He
was first captured in 1857 and then
his hair hung down to his waist and
he wore a. pan of ti-lcavcs. He es
caped the following day and was not
seen again till 18G2 when he was
captured and brought into Honolulu
and exhibited in what was then the
Union Saloon. His hair was cut
short at this time. About ten years
ago or so he was captured and put
in the chaiu gang for destroying a
field of corn, and a grove of oranges
belonging to one Pico of Niu. It is
supposed that he is the sole survivor
of 5 young California Indians who
were brought here on a brig in 1837
and escaped to the mountains. Two
were killed about 10 years later and
of the other three this is supposed to
be the sole survivor. He is still
alive, or was a fortnight ago. lie
has no beard and his chin is tattooed
in line perpendicular lines. His age
must now be about 00. He is more
civilized now and understands a few
words of Hawaiian but no one has
ever heard him speak in his own
language. He sometimes comes
down to the coast and fishes, but
chiefly lives in the woods killing wild
goats for food.

LOCAL & CENERAL NEWS
A sick chinaman on the C. K. Bishop
Friday night vomited a liesh colored
worm abo it 12 inches long.
ment, C. O. Berger, Insurance
Agent, "V. Auld of the Water-works,
and Deputy Marshal Dayton of the
Police, and representatives of the
Gazette, .Press, and Bulletin. A
large pile of lumber about four feet
Light and ten feet square of North
West lumber chiefly 2x12 had been
built round one of the safes so that
the draught of air could go through
it. The interstices were filled with
chips, shavings and straw, and the
whole saturated with Kerosene oil.
Inside the safe had been previously
placed, a watch in good order and
going, an E. P. buttcrknife, a
cigar, a pocket-book, and a quantity
of busiuess cards, and papers.
This was set on fire a minute or
so before 12 and the flames rapidly
spread over and through the whole
pile. The heat was so great that
even with the wind blowing sea
ward away from the crowd, it was
uncomfortable to stand closer to it
them fifty feet. After burning in
this for 37 minutes, it was lemoved
and water thrown over it. Flames
were seen to issue from it, and it
was thought the whole inside must
be on lire. However, on opening,
nothing was found damaged or in
jured although slightly warm. The
watch was still going and quite cool
to the touch and the cigar in good
order for smoking. Everything else
was as fresh as though it had not
been in that blazing mass a second.
Another pile of wood, saturated
with kerosene was lighted to test
the extinguishers but owing to the
fact that the wood was so piled as
to hinder the extinguisher from get
ing ul the flames it was hardly a
fair test. However it was seen that
it spedily got tho flames under con
trol and in all ordinary circumstances
would extinguish any fire starting in
a house even after it had spread
some. Every one departed well
satisfied with the fairness and satis
factory nature of the two tests.
