VACATION DAYS IN THE TROPICS.
UV REV. T. n. O. I'KCK.
The Foil street church, Honolulu,
is ami nlwnys 1ms been a power,
The Rev. Mr. Oggle, tornierly of
Chiengo, preaches In Bethel Union
to excellent congregations, tintl
there is an Episcopal, Roman Catho
lic, Chinese and several native
churches. All are doing their work
in their own way, and feelings of a
most tolerant and kindly nature, I
am happy to say, seem to prevail
Of that glorious old missionary
band who came to this land some
llfty years ago, only three or four
survive. There is old Father Castle
(for they all call Ihcm fathers here),
lar up in thu seventictt, still halo and
hearty, and rich in the blessed
reminiscences of the olden time;
and there is Father Lowell Smith,
weak in body, though strong in
soul, and longing for the Muster's
call as they that watch for the
morning. And I must not forget
Father Dimond and the saintly old
missionary mothers, around 'whose
silvered heads hang halos of radiant
sainlliness more bright and beauti
ful than ever adorned the richest
Madonna of old. God bless them
all I Their seats will be among the
angels, for "these are they that
came out of great tribulation," men
and women who toiled and endured
in the heat of tlic day, and then
went up to receive their wcl (-deserved
encomium of "good '.and
After service one morning in the
Fort street church Prof. Mcrritt took
me out. to the Oahu College, which
has become one of the sights of
Honolulu. On each side, of the
road as we drove along there was
that same luxuriance of tropical
vegetation that 1 have before de
scribed, bursting out into fruit and
llower of every kind, while the deep
blue sea beyond sent up its voice
like the plaintive moanings of a
child. It was a ride long to be re
membered. Finally taking a turn
in the road, the college buildings
broke upon 'us with their spacious
lawn in front and' the great moun
tains sheltering them in the rear.
Almost every one of these moun
tains holds the crater of an extinct
volcano, but now their scarred and
scoriatcd sides are covered with the
verdure of Paradise. What a place
for tlic study of that best of all
books, next to the Word of God,
the great book of nature! Looking
out upon these everlasting hills,
drinking in the blue of that great
broad sea, revelling in tj-' luxuriant
wealth of Held and grove and valley
blazing with flowers and hung with
golden fruit, the students of these
college halls should receive an in
spiration which would, lift them ip
to the very bosom of tho Eternal.
Through the broad veranda wo
passed into the spacious hall, and
thence to the adjoining rooms with
their lofty ceilings and their floors
covered with tho whitest of matting.
An air of coolness pervaded every
thing. Tlio walls are hung with
prints of sonic of the ilnest paintings
in Furope : a grand piano stands in
one corner to furnish instruction to
the pupils or mingle its sweet notes
with the balnry airs of evening, and
ajl the furnishings and surroundings
suggested n ci'lturc, taste and refine
ment which 1 little expected to (hid
in a land so recently civilized. Tho
warm and hearti' greetings of the
large company of teachers and pro
fessors left nothing to be desired.
Prof. Mcrritt has a corps of eight or
ten assistants who aro devoted to
their work and thoroughly compe
tent for it. Three of them, young
ladies, came out on the steamer with
me, together with a young gentle
man, Prof. Severenee, who had been
pursuing his studies at the Univer
sity of jjonn in Germany. All were
busy preparing for the ijpw term
which opens just a week from to
morrow. I could not help thinking
what an influence Iheso teachers will
exert upon the opening faculties of
this young nation, just budding into
life. Nothing would do but I must
sec the Library, the Hall of Science,
the meteorological collection, the
cabinet of antiquities, the Inborn
atory, the telpsoopo and all tho
other paraphernalia of this young
University, for such it Is. ' Prpf,
Mcrritt led the way, first into tho
Library with its three or four thou
sand volumos, many of them picked
bonks and all of the highest merit ;
then we went over to tho Hall of
Science, built at an expense of some
fifteen thousand dollars, the gift of
Mr. llishop, n wealthy banker of this
place. Here is as lino a chemical
laboratory anil lecture room as you
can lind in many of our northern
colleges. Adjoining is the cabinet
of mineralogy, particularly rich in
specimens of a volcanic
Thenoo to tho telescopo ami reading
room (whoro copies of tho (Jbsevocr
arc on Die) ; thence, again through
the class rooms up to tho sleeping
apartments for teachers and pupils,
till 1 had compassed the wholo es
tablishment from cellar to cupola ;
and I stood delighted and amazed
delighted at the natural beauties of
the place, its perfect "r.wl substan
tial equipment, its refined and liter
ary air ; and amazed when I reflected
that where this institution now
stands, Jittle juoro than fifty years
ago tho reign of barbarism prevailed,
niid lmninn beings were offered up.
in sacrifice. New York Observer.
PIE GREAT TELESCOPE.
The two .great lenses for the Lick
telescope, on which tho Messrs.
Clark of Cambridge have been so
long at work, are now practically
completed, and will noon bo sent to
their destination. The plan adopled
for shipping the double lens, worked
out by Captain Eraser, is as follows:
The two glasses will lhstbe wrapped
separately in llfleen or twenty thick
nesses of cloth drawn very tight.
The cloth will be cotton, and in or
der to make it soft and perfectly
lrec from grit It will be washed
many limes "and thoroughly beaten.
Next to the cloth will come a thick
layer of cotton hatting and then a
layer of paper. A- box mndc of
wood and liiicd with felt will con
tain tho glasses when so prepared,
the felt lining of the box coining
nex't to the paper. The lensos with
their covering will be packed tightly
in this box. 'The shape of the box
will conform to the shapo of tlic
lenses. The felt will be attached
with glue so that no nails will bo
anywhere near the glass. Outside
of this wooden box and enclosing it
will be a stiong steel box, about the
shape of n cube. The wooden box
will be tightly packed into the steel
with curled hair. To inclose
this steel box will be still another
steel box or chest, and the inner
steel box will be kept from touching
it by a largo number of spiral
springs covering the whole interior
of the outer steel chest.- This outer
chest will be packed with asbestos,
to render it (itc-proof and both of
the steel boxes will be made air
tight and water proof. The outer
chest will be suspended by pivots in
a strong wooden frame, and a con
trivance has been adopted for turn
ing the chest one-quarter around
every day during its progress to
California. This is to prevent any
molecular disarrangement in the
glass and avoid the danger of polar
ization, it being feared that the jar
ring of the train will disturb the
present arrangement of the mole
cules unless the position of the glass
is daily changed and all lincsof dis
turbance thus broken up, The
glass will be insured for its full
value or rather its cost 51,000,
and all the precautions mentioned
are taken to prevent any accident to
it. It would probably be impossible
to replace it, as' Foil, who cast it,
and the elder Clark, who ground it,
arc both old men. The glass will be
shipped by express. It will arrive
about the loth of December. It
could be mounted then but for the
fact that the enormous iron tube to
hold it, sixty or seventy feet in
length, will not be ready till next
April. It is being made by Warren
& Swazey of Cleveland. The big
dome, winch was designed by Cap
tain Eraser, and which is being made
by the Union Iron Works of San
Francisco, will be completed by the
15th of next March. Boston
