Leading representatives of the

Mr. George Augusta Sala, the
clover English journalist, is expected
here in a few weeks. The Adver
tiser suggests a concortcd welcome
by press men, which we agree would
be only proper. Let any of the

Major Rogers, of the Canadian
Pacific Railway survey, has written
to Mr. Sandford Fleming, Chief
Engineer, lo say that he and others
saw on May lGtli last, in Wisconsin,
a paitinl eclipse of the sun whioli
could not have been produced by the
moon. The infcicncc is that the
phenomenon was caused by the
" daik moon " said by Dr. Wiggins,
a Canadian weather seer and star
gazer, to haunt this world of ours.
IJy our request Mr. Smith, Presi
dent of the Astro-Metcoiological
Association, of Canada and the
United States, contributes lo our
columns an able and interesting artU
clc upon the ruddy sunsets. Any
local comments upon his theor' will
be duly forwarded to him by the
editor of this paper, who has been
unanimously elected honorary cor
responding member of the Associa
tion, in return for a letter giving
some Hawaiian meteorological data
and an unscientific description of
the sunsets as seen here. Mr. Smith
edits an astronomical and meteorolo
gical page in a weekly paper, and
has succeeded to the mantle of the
late Mr. Vcnnor, weather prophet,

author of frequent weather predic

Editois Bullutix: Any one lead
ing last "Wednesday's GazeUeond
not otherwise informed, would get
an exaggerated notion of the badness
of our public thoroughfares. Those
specially mentioned arc probably no
better than represented; but they
cannot be taken as a type of all
others. Our streets and roads in
general arc moderately good, and
decidedly better than for many years
past, notwithstanding greatly in
ci eased traffic. Nobody can con
tradict this and tell the truth. The
Gazette may be right in saying that
" we have no difficulties to light
against similar to those countries
which have to contend against the
dcstiuetive powers of frost and
snow." But this is offset by the
fact that wc have no material for
road-making equal in durability to
that of " those countries which -have
to contcndi against the destructive
powers of frost and snow;" or, if
we have material of equal durability,
that which is ordinarily used on our
roads is not. Then, as to the. dis
proportion between the money ex
pended and the results produced, it
should be remembered that the cost
of road-inaking hero is unavoidably
greater than in most other places.
Let those inexperienced and unprac
tical men who declaim about small
value received for taxes paid, con
sider that most of the sticets of
Honolulu have to be made of mate
rial drawn in ox or mule caits a dis
tance of a mile and more, and that
one of those ox-teams costs fivo or
six dollars a day, and cannot be in
duced to woik for less. Pray, what
big results can reasonable men ex
pect for a given limited sum of
money at this rate of cost? If those
inconsiderate complainors will un
dertake to lessen the price of labor,
cheapen the cost of bullock teams,
and lcduco the distance of cartage,
I have no doubt the Government
will cheerfully undertako to give
more road for the taxes received.

Very perceptible earthquake shocks
were felt in this city laBt night and
this morning. About eight, o'clock
last evening, dining a brief lull in a
wind and rain storm, a shock was
felt, which probably few realized
was duo to earthquake, but tho evi
dence of a gentleman who says it
splattered nk from thestand over
his writing table, and made the
house shake, is, conclusive that it
wns not the wind or the cat. At a
minute to six o'clock this morning
there was a rather rough shock,
which flung window shutters open
and made beds ticmblc under slum
boring forms all ovcY tho town. It
felt lo the writer of this as if a big
mufllcd stone had been hulled
against his house, and his bed shook
like the berth of a sleeping-car in
motion. The movement appeared to
have been from noith to south. At
Messrs. Wildcrs' Ice Works dishes
and pots rattled with the tremor of
tho "earth. Mr. Kraft, jeweller,
found on entering his shop a glass
case opened and his regulator clock
stopped at one minute to six. A

across the Island, says tho shock
was very Severe there. Here the
