bcfoie tho Narrative Is Concluded.
Tired and pciplcxcd willi the
labors of a dull, monotonous lifu, I
went homo before thu usual hour of
dinner, and lighting a choice Ha
vana from ft box which I had just
opened, I stretched myself on nn
easy lounge on my back verandah,
and soon, partly perhaps, under tiic
influence of the narcotic, was
launched into dreamland. This
dreaming is one of tho pleasantcst
faculties of the human soul, when
not debased by an abuse of Nature.
To return in visions and revisit the
forgotten scenes of one's childhood,
or to lly into the regionsof futurity
and view what is revealed only to
the eye of Omniscience, are among
the few immaterial joys allotted to
mortals. 1 will not say what truth
there may be in the reverie into
which my mind ran, but 1 will nar
rate it in such a way as may interest
I dreamed, myself wandering in a
large and populous city where every
thing had a strangeness that be
wildered mc, anil yet there was an
indefinable something that told mc 1
had seen this place before. But
the stiangc language spoken, the
novel costumo of the people, and
above all the busy hum and whirl on
ever side perplexed inc. I landed
on a largo stone quay, (from whence
I came I knew not), and before me
and all around were lofty buildings
of stone and brick, while a glance at
the harbor showed it teeming with
life ships, boats and steamers ply
ing in every direction, and daiting
across it like magic. I hail walked
a short distance from tho quay,
meeting man, all strangers, till I
came to the steps of a noble build
ing, with" glass and marble front, in
the door of which stood a man, who
appeared to recognize mc, and
whom as I thought, I had seen be
fore. But when he accosted mc In
an unintelligible jargon, I concluded
him to be a stranger. 1 replied to
him, however, in English, and asked
him his name and where 1 was.
Finding me peak English he an
swered me in the same, and though
entire strangers to each other, I
soon found upon conversation that
lie was a descendant, four genera
tions distant, of a familiar acquain
tance of mine, and that fact dis
pelled all strangeness. He invited
me into the building, which 1 found
to be the olllco of an extensive ma
rine and life assurance company, in
which ho was a secretary. I then
enquired the name of the place
where I was. "This," said lie "is
the City of Honolulu, where my an
cestors havo lived and died for a
hundred years." Honolulu! I shout
ed with surprise, and involuntarily
rose from my seat and rushed to
tho porch to sec if possible I could
bo mistaken. My friend rose with
mc and seeing my surprise, took
his hat to accompany me out. Be
wildered as I was before I was now
doubly so. This Honolulu I When
and how! I exclaimed." What year
can this be? "This is the year
1,900, according to tho Christian
era, or according to our inincse
reckoning, the year .ri,G10."
Ah, sir, I have mistaken the
place ; but tell mc when and how
this city was built. My companion,
who now no longer appeared a stran
ger to me, was a man of refinement,
and education. In all his conversa
tion and actions, he was exceedingly
polite, and seemed to anticipate all
my wishes. Ho did not seem to oe
a pure American or European, but
his complexion was a handsome
bronze, with shining black hair, and
extremely pleasing features
ing the building, we walKed
gether through one of tho main
streets, which was very wide, and
on each sido were high and solid
stone buildings, apparently ilre
ptoof, and of beautiful architectural
designs. Tho singular costume of
the people attracted my attention.
Their dress appoarcd to be borrowed
from tho Chinese, indeed their
general complexion and. features
told mo that a largo Chincso element
existed hero. The men were dressed
in looso llowing pants, and a kind of
shirt or over-dress, very similar to
tho higher class of tho Chinese, and
tho only difference between the
classes tjiat wc met was, in the tex
turo of tho dross. Tho laborers
wore a common fabric, while tho
wealthier were clothed with tho
costlier articles. The ladies, more
over, were dressed after tho manner
of tho Chinese and similar to tho
men, having loose pants and nn
over-dress, on which latter was be
stowed all tho elegance and art
imaginable. Instead of wearing
bonnets or huts, tho better class of
Jadjes had their black hair circled
with wroathos, and in promonadlng
each lady was accompanied by a
servant with a monstrous umbrella.
But tho dress and hats of tho chil
dren appeared the most singular.
They were dressed entirely different
ifii n ,fxi3si)n re y-nn nffiHmrnff.rirminrm.
from the men or women, nncl woie
mcicly nn elegant colored shirt
trimmed with laces or fringes, and
a perfectly ilat hat without any
crown, hung mound with tassels.
But to return to my companion.
"The present site of Honolulu was
selected," said he, in reply to my
question, as wo walked up tho street,
"about one hundred and II fly years
ago. The streets were formerly very
narrow and ciookcd, and remained
so until the great conllagration in
tho year 1882, when -1,200 houses,
or neatly thu entire town, was de
stroyed, the streets on the unani
mous petition of the citizens, wcio
then laid out entirely new and
broad, and tho huge park which
you there bee, (said to have been
formeily a garden of tho old
dynasty), was much enlarged and
beatttilled. Indeed the entire town
was resurveyed and rebuilt. Somu
twenty-two years later, in the year
1,1)01, another extensive conllagra
tion occurred here, which destroyed
the lower part of the city. Includ
ing the spot where my insurance
building now stands. Tho lire ex
tended to the wharves and shipping,
and destroyed some sixty-seven
vessels then lying in the port. It
was at that time thai our stone
quays wcio lirsl built. About llvo
years after this, a movement was
made by the Government and
wealthy citizens to build yonder
nourishing city of Heliopolis, dis
tant by lailway about ten miles.
The population of our city is not far
from eighty thousand souls, while
the population of our sister city
llelionolis from its superior com
mercial advantages numbers over
I can only give the biicfcst sub
stance of this most interesting con
versation with my companion of
PJG0, nor detain the render witli my
many inquitiesand observations of
surprise at this, and that curiosity
that attracted my attention. The
population did not appear to be the
aborigines or natives, but a niixtuie
between European and Chinese.
We had now reached his residence
a most elegant and costly mansion,
surrounded with stately coacoanuts
and other lofty trees whose interior
shone with oiiuulal splendor and
How long I tairicd here, and en
joyed his hospitality I cannot say, as
dreams allow no measure of time
spent ; but I next found myself witli
my companion on boaid a tiain of
cars whiiling out of Honolulu with
lightning speed towaids the famous
city of Heliopolis. "This railroad,"
said he, in answer to my inquiries,
"was first built by a private company
of wealthy traders, some GO years
ago, and as you see, runs along the
shore and frequently crosses the
water on piers. Originally it was
built with one track, but now there
are three tracks, and trains nm
every half hour. The same company
built the Oahu Insular Railway,
which runs entirely around the
Island, mostly along the shore." As
the train dashed along we passed
several thriving villages out lie shore,
extending back and up the valleys.
The houses were principally of coral
stone. v The sides of the valleys, I
noticed were terraced and covered
with vineyard and olive groves.
Hardly had my companion spoken a
dozen sentences before the cars
rushed under, an extensive depot,
where nothing but confusion pic
vailed. Glad to get out, wc strolled
along the quays aud my companion
resumed his narrative. "I stated to
you before that this city was com
menced about 50 years ago. A com
pany of wealthy merchants was
organized, and at the expenso of
nbout two millions of dollars, cut a
chauncl through the leef of sutllcent
depth to admit the largest merchant
and war vossols. btone quay's were
built at great expense, at which these
vessels can lie and discharge. That
noble ship which you sec there is the
Celestial Empiro of 1,000 tons
butden, being the smallest of a line
of eight packets to China and Japan.
She landed hero last week over
1,000 immigrants. Formerly whlae
ships visited this kingdom from the
East, but now none come from that
quarter, but in place of It no less
than two hundred steam sailing ves
sels are owned in this poit, and
employed in the Pacific whale
fishery. It is this trade in oil that
has built up this city, and made it
ono of the greatest commercial em
poriums of the world." Hero I in
terrupted my companion to enquire
what becanio of the oil brought into
this port. "That steamship," said
he, "which you see there, is one of
our semi-monthly Pacific steamers,
running between America and China.
On each return trip, they carry to
America 10,000 bbls each, which
pass over the great American rail
way to Englaud. Besides tho above
wc havo lines to the Hcpublio of
Australia, to Panama and South
America, all centering at this port.
We havo now no ships that aro not
fitted ns steamers, and wo have a
regular daily line to each of tho
other Islands, and a large tiado with
them. Wo have telepraphio lines

America, and wo aro ndvispd pf

mammoth steamship of woudorful
proportions came steaming up tho
channel into the harbor, and Hear
ing our wharf gave a sorecch with
such a confusion of bells that I sud
denly started from my reverie, and
found it to be only tho club dinner
