AN OLD ACQUAINTANCE.
Tlio following extracts of a letter
from Mr. F. W. Seaifc, late of the
Daily Ilmcaiian, will be read with
interest by bis many friends in Hono
lulu. The letter is dated Melbourne,
Victoiia, Australia, Nov. tlrd. 1885:
"I left Hongkong by the S. S.
Guthrie, one of the most beautifully
littcd-up ships I ever saw. From
Hongkong wc went into N'oith China
to Foo Chow Foo, where nearly all
the foreign vessels load their tea
cargoes. We had a stay of about
fourteen days here, and took the
most of the opportunity of visiting
' the interior, which wo found exceed
ingly interesting. "VYc visited several
of the chief joss houses, -uuongst
which was that of the Shan, the
oldest and richest one in China."
Mr. Scaifo then briefly "recounts
his trip up the Minn River, past the
sites of several notable land and
naval battles in the recent Franco
Chinese war. Several ironclads were
building at the Pagoda Anchorage,
where are a dockyard and arsenal,
" After getting between 15.000 and
1,000 tons of first reason's tea on
board wo left Foo Chow for Ptilm
crston, Port Darwin, as we were the
mail steamer and had to call for
, mails. Things are getting a. little
lively at Port Darwin; anew ship's
pier is in course of erection, and a
new railway from Port Darwin to
Adelaide is being contracted for."
The steamer made brief calls at
several minor ports, but stayed two
days at Biisbane and about eight
days in Sydney. The wiitcr says:
"1 consider the haibor and en
trance to it, at Sydney, the iinest in
the world without exception, and
passing the Heads, especially at
night, with those enormous, powerful
electric lights lighting up the narrow
defile, makes a sight always to be
remembered afterwards. About three
days after leaving Sydney we arrived
at tlio Queen City of Melbourne,
Victoria. I like Melbourne very
much, and think it one of the most
beautiful and best laid out cities I
have yet visited. The streets are
broad, the footpaths ditto, and are
kept exceedingly clean. Nearly all
the streets either have the wood
pavement or are receiving it, and
the new cable tramway is just com
mencing to run out to Richmond and
the suburbs. Melbourne is, no
doubt, going ahead. Sydney is,
a fine city, but not, in my
opinion, anything in comparison to
Melbourne. The streets are too
narrow, crooked, and not over re
markable for cleanliness, and tlio
public buildings do not show up to
the same advantage as in Melbourne,
owing lo their having the appearance
of having been crowded into their
present sites, and not having elbow
room." Mr. Seaifc describes the tragedy
on the Flemington racecourse on the
Saturday before his writing, when u
collision of two horses brought th"
whole field of -J "J horses down in
a struggling mass, from which
Nicholson, the leading Australian
jockey, was taken out dead and
many oilier jockeys seriously in
jured, lie gives a graphic des
cription, too lengthy for our space,
of the terrible spectacle. Other mai
lers of general interest rcfeired to
are the sculling race, to have come
off on the 10th iust., between Beach
'. and another Austialian for the
championship of the world, and
subsequently a incc between lleach
and Teenier, Hie American who
lately defeated Hanlan. A post
script of Nov. 1th describes the
race for tlio Melbourne Cup the pre
vious day: " The scene was an es
pecially brilliant one, and put one
much in mind of our Dei by at
Ensoin. The race itself was splen
didly run ; all the field keeping well
together for three-fourths of the
distance and making a most biilliant
finish, beating the record, and yes
terday's cup was won in the quickest
time ever made in the Colonies two
miles in two minutes and 29A sec
onds. An outsider, 'Sheet Anchor,'
was the winner and most of the
people present were pretty well bit."
Mr. Seaifc was doing well, in
good (mints, and well pleased with
Jiis now location.
THE FOWL STEALING BUSINESS.
Kditou Bulletin s More chickens
gone! "Anglo-Saxon," after dis
covering the loss of four (or five)
"roosters" last night, is an ardent
sympathizer with the gentleman who
signed himself "A Victim" in the
Advcrtiscv of Hie 23rd current in
the loss of bis fine fat chickens.
Further, the public ought to admire
his courage and determination, es
pecially in the following: "Unless
the authorities come to our relief we
must protect ourselves and supple
ment the warning note of our watch
dog by the bang of our shotgun.
Fur myself 1 propose presenting a
charge of buckshot to the first night
invader of my premises." 1 natu
rally admire the "ring" of these re
marks, but as wo are unable to ex
tend our police force into the suburbs
without exposing our center to the
attacks of thieves and lobbers, and
not. having any money in the trea
sury to pay for extra police to guard
the suburbs of our town, we cer
tainly will be left to protect our
selves. Wc must not, nor have wc
the right allowed us to use the shot
gun (or any other gun) here, as
vide a decision rendered not long
since by our Supreme Bench, where
all Hawaiian or foreign citizens were
adjudged to bo barred the legal right
to use deadly weapons to protect
their persons (saying nothing about
their poultry). Now, sir, could any
one, for one moment, be induced to
believe that our courts would allow
the patriotic gentleman to "bang"
away into our Government pets with
out giving him a spell, shorter or
longer, over in Captain Tripp's cas
tle, by way of a reminder of Ha
waiian jurisprudence, which allows
a thief to flee without giving the ag
grieved the right to fire to cheek his
fiight? No, Mr. Victim, 1 have ex
amined our laws and can only impart
to vou my avmnathizino: aloha ! but
powerless to assist. We certainly
have not the right under the Ha
waiian laws to use the shotgun, not
even on a Chinaman : the only alter
native left us is lo use a stick, ere
we have the lawful right to use our
influence endeavoring to put these
Chinese chicken thieves out of this
country. T am one of "Victim's"
admirers, with always a loaded
shotgun on the rack realty for ac
tion, but am compelled lo allow it
to remain there and trust to my
running qualities to save my fine
chickens getting into Chinatown.
After writing the above I have
seriously taken the matter into con
sideration and have arrived at the
conclusion that it is much easier
to eat my fowls than sit up at night
and shoot thieves contrary to the
dicta of the judges of the Supreme
Court of this Kingdom, right or
wrong. Yet 1 must confess that
there would be more satisfaction,
shooting down these sneak and
poultry thieves without distinction,
instead ol being compelled to run
them into the Police Station to be
convicted and work for the benefit
of a corrupt Government.
