"OBJECTIVES" AND "CELLS."
In another column will be found
an item taken from the S. P.
Bulletin relating to the completion
of the objective glas for the Lick
It has been stated that the objec
tive just finished is the only one out
of twenty that the Clarke commenced
for the Lick Observatory which has
turned out a success. The nineteen
failures have not been due to any
want of skill on their part, but to
defects in the mass of glass re
quired to make the lens. These
defects could not be discovered until
developed by the processes of shap
ing the lens, and often not then
until those processes were nearly
The wonderful skill required to
bring one of these lenses to perfec
tion can onlv be appreciated bv
those who have seen the Clarkcs at
work. It is when the lens is nearly
finished that their phenomenal skill
is the most apparent. Then the lens
is placed with its edge resting on an
air cushion and held upright by one
of the brothers, while the other
watches the spot of light projected
on the lens from a candle the only
light in the room as it traverses
from side to side of the brilliantly
polished surface, as the lens is
slowly turned to the right or left.
In some mysterious manner the
observer is enabled to detect the
slightest departure from true con
vexity in the shape of the lens by
When finally polished, so line is
the surface, that it is said a silk
handkerchief cannot be brushed
over it without visibly scratching it.
The " cells " spoken of are the
arrangements of air cushions, so
placed as to hold the glass fumly in
its ring, and htill not binding it so
ns to distort its shape. Even its
own weight, if brought to bear on
one portion of the edge, would so
alter the shape of the lens as to
throw entirely out of the field of
view the light from a star that
ought really to be seen without
ANTISHAMTJS BACK AGAIN.
Mn. Bulletin: I sec that my
old friend Airs. Negus has turned
up again. I thought she had emi
grated and died long ago. I am
glad to find that T was mistaken in
the latter conclusion that she had
kicked the bucket. .She has come
back, no doubt invigorated by her
sojourn abroad, and has resumed
her mission among the people of
Honer-ruru. I am pleased to know
it. Ikncw the old lady well formerly,
and read her letter with surprise ami
pleasure in last Saturday's Bul
letin. It is a remarkable coincidence
that two important personages in a
somewhat similar line of calling
should re-appear in this great city
about the same time, after a pro
longed absence. Here am I, too,
back again. You remember inc.
My name is Antishamus, the Arab.
I have been away on a foraging ex
pedition, and have just turned up
once more on the old camping
ground in search of plunder.
I rather like Mrs. Negus, although
she doesn't belong to my peisuasion.
She is a Ivafllr, and bus a propensity
for talking about scandal, tittle
tattle, and all that kind of small beer.
"Well, that's all right; I wisli her
success in her mission.
Jly natural thirst is for tho blood
of Ministers, legislators, editors,
rogues, rascals, and all dishonest
persons in high places. My mission
is to make myself a fearful nuisance
to quacks ami humbugs, nnd to
plunder all mountebanks, political
pretenders, and public impostors of
any ill-gotten famo or undeserved
honors surreptitiously acquired.
Being a thorough sycophant and
tuft-hunter, I care little for the
doings of unimportant people, their
character or misfoi tunes. The pri
vate career or littlo peccadilloes of
humanity are no themes for a genu
ine Arab, whoso lofty prejudices
only sanction attack and plunder in
the camp of great chiefs, men of re
nown, station, and wealth, occupy
ing some public position. Littlo
people and little things are left to

You sec, Mr. Kllitor, a long course
of mismanagement of the public concern-,
of this country the lesult of
incompetence, -elushness, nd cor
nipt influence is weighing down
the better principles of the nation
to the low moral level of its intlu-
ontial and leading men. and the
political tastes of the people nn be
coming so depraved that their ap
preciation of truth and justice is
dying a gradual death. The urgent
necessities of the case call loudly
for the assistance of some reckless
Arab of literature to smite the un
believers who are turning the holy
temple of honor, truth and virtue
into a den of thieves, money
changers, and profane persons. The
stain upon tho national escutcheon,
the bar sinister upon tho heraldic
blazonry, must be retrieved by a
fierce passage of arms at the bar
riers of public opinion, at which
gentle tournament every perpeti ator
anil supporter ol unwnoiesomc
trash and noxious diluvium, is here
courteously invited to break a lance,
or have his head broken with a pot
of printers' ink.
With this brief re-introduction of
myself to the intelligent public of
Honolulu. 1 retire for a while behind
the screen, .Adieu, for the present.
MRS. HECUS TALKS.
Df.au BrLLUTix: You must not
think, because I alluded pointedly
in my last letter to the prevalence
of scandal, gossip and kindred evils
in Honolulu, that I am going to
devote myself to the task of clearing
them away. In the first place I am
not competent to accomplish such
an undertaking. In the next place,
though "the pen," may be "migh
tier "than the sword," in some
hands yet to clear away the mass
of pestiferous muck Honolulu's
scandal mongers delight in stiiring
up, I think one would need in
stead of pen, ink and paper some
sort of "excavator," and, more
over, have the poweiful help of a
good strong current of healthy
"public opinion," to be used as
Heiculcs did the waters with which
he cleared the Augean stables. 1
will do what I can to voice
("voice" is a good word much
affected by writers in Honolulu, so
1 use it) I will try to voice the
opinion of those who dislike scandal
and gossip, when occasion offers,
but there are other topics too, to
There are the local politics which
quite interest me. The Ficnch tia
vcler who was introduced to Mr.
Pickwick, recorded it as his opinion
that "politics is a subject which sur
prises in himself," etc. I find this
to be true of Hawaiian "politics."
It is surprising to me that the
political aspect of affairs here should
excite so much comment and ad
verse criticism that your news
papers notably the Gazette
should froth over with so much
righteous indignation, and that
there should be so little action,
follow so much talk.
From the "growling" I heard
when 1 first leturned to. Honolulu
not very long ago I thought
"surely my lines have fallen in
pleasant places! As a correspon
dent, I may congratulate myself
upon being here just on the eve of a
stirring revolution pronuncinmento
ruction rebellion or seces
sion." And lo! nothing came of
it. Then I began to look about me
and inquire "Why this lack of
effect?" Nor was' it long before I
discovered the answer. It is this:
You, Messrs. Malcontents, who
grumble from morn till night at
"tho Government," who adviso
"action" "a change" "protests"
and a general and vigorous refusal
to "eat tho leek." "Why don't you
qualify youisclves to accomplish the
ends which you aim at? Why don't
you possess tho right to votu'i
Therein lies your strength. Your
"monicd interests" of which you
boast are rather of a hindrance, for
"lebellions," j evolutions," and
other violent remedies for real or
fancied political grievances mean
the destruction of property, which
even success will not replace.
Hence tho property owner is gen
erally tho strongest advocate for
the upholding of "law and order"
tho most determined foe to violent
measures of all kinds.
Drop your sentimental (and for
tho most part ridiculous) adher
ence to your "home" government,
and place yourselves on a political
equality with tho Hawaiians, and
then you can "purify" the Legisla
ture and control perhaps the
Governmental policy of tho King
dom. Mits, Nkous.
cHas, W. BOOTH'S LUAU. I
On Saturday last a ciaud luall
was given by Chailes "V. Booth) nt
tho residence of his mother Mrs.
Long l'auoa Valley. Tho festival
was in honor of his attainment of
his majoiity, and neither time, labor,
nor money was spared to make it a
success, which indeed it was, as far
as the cuisine nriangemcnts and
comfoit of the guests weie con
cerned. Unfoitunately, the heavy
down-pour of rain which continued
throughout Saturday, not only pre
vented many fiom attending, but
also prevented tho use of some !100
Chinese lanterns, which had been
provided to illuminate the grounds.
But notwithstanding the rain, visitors
commenced to arrive shortly after
13 r. m., and up to (S r. m. there were
between -100 and f00 persons pres
ent, among whom were His Majesty
the King, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Neu
mann, Colonel Boyd, Jlr. and Mis.
T. Lucas, Mr. and Mrs. S. M.
Carter, and Mrs. Smith (daughter
of Mrs. Long) of Stockton, Cala.
The laige and commodious veran
dahs were brilliantly lit up with
Chinese lanterns, while the reception
and dining rooms, and pallors were
handsomely and artistically decor
ated with palms, evergreens, tlowers,
feins, etc. ; and what with the decor
ations, the illuminations, and the
handsome costumes and glittering
jewclery worn by the ladies, the
scene was such as is larely seen at
a luau in Honolulu. The supper
was served in the large dinning
room, and consisted of every luxury
and delicacy obtainable in this
maiket. At the rear of the dwelling
was erected a marquee, 70xGo feet,
under which two long tables were
loaded with every kind of native
food. The evening was very pleas
antly spent in music, singing and
social conversation. To be sure,
the affable host, Chas. 'YV. Booth,
was beseiged with congratulations
and sui rounded by ardent expressions
of good wishes for long life and
continued happiness. The party
dispersed about 10 o'clock.
The sportsmen that went over the
Pali, Saturday afternoon, to shoot
at Koolau. say that they were
wetted through by the rain long
before reaching the Pali, aud that
the riding was very disagreeable.
The game at the Koolau lake w as
numerous, but shy, Tho .Whitney-Wodehousc-Lishnian-Giffard
got 73 ducks, (sprigs, spoonbills,
spintails, and a native quacker),
besides 20 odd plover. The other
parly Cartwright, Dow sett and
Spaulding got 52 ducks, but no
plover. The biuls weie in good
condition, that is, fat and not fishy.
