HONOLULU, II. I., TUESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1833.
w v SUPPLEMENT
. AN ARCTIC WONDER.
The latest ndviccs from Ounnlnskn,
which arrived by the steamer J9ow,
just down fjom that island,, contain
an interesting description of wonder
ful volcanic disturbances, which are
said to have occurred near there
lately. The information is contained
in part in a letter received by Dr. J.
II. Hatch of this city from his
daughter, Mrs. Frederick Smith, wife
of the Deputy Customs Collector
heated there. No other writtcu in
telligence has jrct been received,
neither the Sigual Service agent nor
the Geographical Society's corres
pondent having been heard from in
regard to the matter. The com
munication to Dr. Hatch bears date
of October lGth, and says that on
that day a most unusual sight was
witnessed in the heavens to the north
of Ounalaska and that soon after
ward the sky grew very dark, a
dense black cloud covering the whole
horizon and hanging so low as to
permit a close inspection of its com
position, though this could not be
made" out at that time. This cloud
and its general color and outline
were so unlike anything the writer
had ever seen before as to defy com
parison. The light of the sun was
complctly excluded trom that section,
many ascribing this to a total eclipse,
and others, seeing the cloud and ex
periencing a peculiar and very un
usual element of heat in the atmos
phere, thought the world was ap
proaching its end. Mr. Applcgate
of the Sigual station predicted a
heavy gale on the appearance of this
phenomenal cloud, but it was not
until it broke, which occurred half
an hour afterward, that its real nature
was discovered- On collapsing the
entire mass fell to the earth, envelop
ing everything to the depth of four or
five inches in a sheet of dull, gray
ashes. Its volcanic origin was soon
apparent, but there being no activo
volcano on the island and the only
mountain of any great extent, Maka
shin, 5474 feet in height, being close
at hand and showing no disturbance,
the eruption was thought to have taken
place at the island of Bogoslov
(God's land), thirty miles northwest
from Ounalaska. Reports had been
brought in from time to time during
the summer by natives of the "angry
mountain" of Bogoslov, and to this
volcano it would seem to have been
A VOLCANO-FORMED ISLAND.
Wishing to ascertain if any of the
nothem voyagers had witnessed a
phenomenon of tins kind, Captain
Hogus of the Dora was called on by
a Chronicle reporter Thursday after
noon, lie was found at an assay
office, he being an experimentalist
in this branch of science. m Laying
aside his blow-pipe and metal, the
Captain said in answer to the first
"Yes; I was at Bogoslov twice
during the post season and 1 did see
something most extraordinary. Sit
down and I'll tell 3rou all about it."
The reporter complied with the
request and the Captain went on ;
"When I say that I was at Bogo
slov you mst not take it for granted
that I landed there."
"Is it not a habitable island?"
asked the reporter.
"At certain seasons, perhaps, but
at the time I saw it there was nothing
visible there but a mass of flames
and' smoke, with pieces of redhot
rocks issuing from the great cone in
the center of the mass and great quan
tities pf lava running down to the
"How near did you approach?"
"I stood off about a mile and a
Iialf, not daring to Vbntme nearer.
It was tiio grandest scene x ivcv w
liessed aud I have been pretty n'ty
"How long did the eruption last?"
"I can't" exactly say as to that, as
I found tho cone in a disturbed con
dition and left it next day, still in
a state of eruption. I have learned
that it had been throwing out lava
for several weeks and that it had still
continued to do so up to the date of
my departure from Ounalaska. But
what was most remarkable and most
singular to behold was a new feature
which was then visible in tho scene.
A new island had Bprung up not far
distant from Bogoslov since my pre
vious voyage to that spot. At fiist
I could not believe my senses and
thought I had made a miscalculation
in taking my surrounding, but there
it was, a new island, with a cone
fahuped peak in tho center 500 to 000
feet high and lying only a short dis
tance from wheie wo stood, that
