"As there lias been considerable
discussion lately regarding the state
of the Government Finances we have
examined the statement of receipts
for the quarter ending 30th June
and lind that they amounted to
8237, 237. 58 ' from fines, penalties,
customs, revenue stumps, internal
taxes, interior department and
Talcing an average of this amount
as the probable receipts for this and
the next three months the total re
ceipts for Four months to the end ol
the year, from the same sources, J
bhould be $310,310.77. In addition
to this amount the revenue will pro
bably receive from $300,000 to
S3o0,000 from taxes making a total
revenue to 31st December of about
8050,000. The average monthly ex
penditure of the Government is about
00,000 which for the four months
will amount to 82-10,000. In addition
to this we have been authoritatively
informed that the total liabilities of
the Government within the same
period, for public works, re
claiming bonds that may fall due.
etc., will amount tc $200,000 or a
total of half-a-million of dollars to
be paid away. This would leave
$ 150,000 in the Treasury at the end
of this year.
If our figures are correct, and we
shall be glad to receive official in
formation as to their being correct
or incorrect, then we think, that at
present and at any rate for some
months to come, there need be no
cause to fear that the Treasury can
not meet the demands upon it.
It must be remembered however
that there will be no receipts from
taxed for the first nine months of
188-t and the Government should be
prepared to show that their regular
receipts from customs, fines, stamps
and the interior department, will,
with their balance on 1st January
next, be sufficient not only for
ordinary current expenditure but
also to meet other liabilities for
public works, immigration and the
payment of loans in the same
period, say to 30th September 1884.
At the present time financial matters
appear to be satisfactory but we
shall be glad to learn from official
sources the prospects for the future.
Last Saturday night, at about 10
o'clock, Mr. Luk Sang, one of the
partners of Chilian & Co., was a
roused from sleep by shouts, swear
ing, calls of "haul in" and a great
commotion generally, in his yard on
Iieretania street, near Pensacola.
Several of the neighbors and a passer
by soon appeared on the scene, when
two kanakas and a half white ran out
of the yard, jumped on their horses
and rode off towards "Waikiki. It
seems that three of Luk Sting's ser
vants were retnrning from town
when the' were assaulted by the
kanakas, who followed the chinamen
into the yard, cursing and striking
them until frightened off by the
number of people attracted by the
row. This is probably one of the
little pleasantries which our free-to
get-drunk liquor law is producing so
frequently of late; and, with other
similar escapades, might be taken
as a text at the next temperance
Our itcmizer, while making his
daily round along the city front last
evening, in search of "unconsidered
trifles," encountered a couple of
well-known skippers engaged in
"Say, Brown, when do you look
for the Madras?"
"Well, Smith, she's like the dark
ies of the place she's named after
rather inclined to take things easy."
Uut she's u fast boat, and didn't
.she make a line run from here to
"Yes, but don't you see that a
tramp is down on all schedules and
timetables? She goes and conies
when it suits her. You can look for
her any time within a month froin
the day first set for her to arrive here.
T'was so with that ere Glcnelg,
wasn't it. that came into port here in
"Well, do you think she'll fetch a
mail from 'Frisco, Brown?"
"Yes, but not for the Hoard of
Health nary a darned ictter for
them folks, you bet, if Bradley has
his way about it."
Mrs. J. D. Negus (this must be
the Mrs. Negus of our daily contem
porary) was judged insane in San
Francisco lately, so says the Alta
California of 31st Aug. Mrs. Ne
gus came from Utah and it was de
cided to send her to Uatavia for
treatment. She has been violent at
times for about two years owing to
family troubles. If this is the same
lady 'who is known in Honolulu
through her writings, her last "io
lent attack on Saturday must have
been the cause of her subsequent in
sane ravings for which the was ex
amined and condemned to live in
13atavia. It is to be hoped that she
will be brought to Honolulu where
she is well known and will doubtless
receive kind treatment.

THE ISLAND OF JAVA.
The terrible convulsions of nature
which luure desolated portions of the
Island of Java arc the more terrible
in the fact that they occur in a
thickly populated country. The is
land has an area of -19, 730 square
miles and a population of a little
over 18,000,000. The Javanese are
of the yellow race, small in stature,
indolent and careless of the future.
The island is best known to America
as the point from which we obtain
large supplies of coffee. Rice,
sugar and cotton are produced in
considerable quantities. The Ja
vanese live in lhc midst of reminders
of the convulsions of nature which
have devastated portions of the is
land nt various periods in its history.
The two ranges of mountains which
traverse the island aroThickly set
with volcanoes, in some of which
the fires have diet! out, while others
are still burning. An extinct volcano
known as the "Vale of Poison" ex
hales such u deadly vapor that birds
drop dead as they fly within its cir
cle. The soil is said to be covered
with the carcasses of animals and
birds and in some cases the bones of
human beings. In the crater of an
other volcano is a lake of sulphuric
acid, or of water strongly impreg
nated with acid, about one-fourth of
a mile long. The fumes which as
cend from these poisons when nature,
sets her fires at work are fatal to all
forms of animal life. The eruptions
of the volcano in this case were ac
companied with tidal waves that
completed the work of destruction.
One smaller island off the coast dis
appeared in the sea and vessels now
sail where it was. "No close estimate
can yet be made of the number of
lives lost, but it reaches into the
thousands. F. (Jail.
The island is 030 miles long, 35
to '120 miles broad. The volcanoes,
eight of which are active, vary from
0000 to 9, and 12,000 feet high.
