VISITORS TO THE VOLCANO.
A gentleman who recently visited
the Volcano of Kilauea, ami while
there occupied a portion of his
time in inspecting the visitors' re
gister at the Volcano House, says
that the annual number of ncrsons
who go to see the great fiery wonder
averages about i!J0. Considering
that Kilauea is the largest and most
wonderful of all known volcanoes,
that it is conipaialivcly easy of
access, and that these islands arc
connected with the outside world
by regular ocean steamers with first
class passenger accommodation,
this is a very small number indeed:
even the addition of another cipher
would still leave it small. Kb
doubt when the projected carriage
road from Ililo to the Volcano, for
which the Legislature appropriated
830,000, is constructed, the number
of visitors will be greater than
A HARD TIME FOR COLLECTORS.
The real dullness now prevalent
in Ilonalulu in matters of business
is not altogether apparent to mere
observers. Things arc not what
they seem. A lack of trade at the
present time is not so much felt as a
lack of money. That is, it is not so
difficult to dispose of goods as to
collect the money which is to be
given in exchange for them. The
credit system which has been so
long in vogue here, and which lias
secured such a fast hold on the
community that all attempts tit
eradication have hitherto failed, fa
vors the movement of meichandise
in the absence of ca-ih. Hence bu
siness may appear to be In isle when
money is scarce. Many tradesmen
complain at the present time of un
usual dilllculty in collecting ac
counts. Collectors have a hard
time of it considerable travelling
and dunning for small results. Peo
ple who, in times of plenty, acquire
habits of extravagance, are slow to
curtail their living within their
means, when a season of reduced re
venue comes upon them.
Experienced road builders say
mat llic lirst tiling to be done in
macadamizing a street is to put in
position curbing for the side-walks.
Without this it is almost impossible
to make adequate provision for the
escapo of storm water. Some of the
street work recently completed has
omitted the curbing, nnd some now
in progress is proceeding on the
same plan. King street, on the
1'alama side of Nuunnti street, may
be taken as an example. Why the
omission? In some other streets,
Merchant street for instance, the
curbing has been attended to. Why
is not the same thing done every
where? It maj' be hero remarked
that the favorite material with the
Government for curbing seems to
be wood. Why so? It is no doubt
cheaper in the first place, but it will
cost more in the end. Wood,
whether it bo one inch or three
'inches in thickness, will last but a
short lime: stone practically lasts
; -for ever. Why not use stone? This
is a stone country. Stone is more
abundant than desirable within easy
reach. Stone curbing would wear
for generations. The first cost
would bo the last cost.
REPLY TO C. MIHGHYM.
Mr. EniTOit: Pcihaps it will bo
amusing to other people to hear "C.
' Ming IlymV slur on tho Poitu-
V Trriar. nt. Affir-nn wlinn lin RHV8 ;
, "and I know that they mostly
livo on salted shrimps and water
greens Tlioy also buy
fsome cheap Hour which they mix
'with water and then fry tho mixtuie
like hot cakes" Hut
to those acquainted with our people
' in Macao, it must be disgusting. If
Mr. Hym does not know any better
about the Voilugucso nl Macao,
Ihcn I say that he duos not Know
anything, and is only using the com
mon weapon amongst his country
men by maliciously attacking our
nationality, perhaps as means df
revenge, by not being plcisedti livo
in Macao. Mr. llyin cannot mean
the Portuguese he speaks of,
but the half cast3 or Ciiiicows and
baptized Chinamen who out their
queues and style thoiii-elves l'nitii
gueso, and not the l'mtuguese pro
per, because thou all conic from
Portugal and its Inlands as soldiers
and Policemen, and use a very small
portion of their food ot what is
raised in China, most of it being
imported from Europe and America.
1 believe that it will make every
civilized man that knows something
about history to laugh at, the in
sinuation of Mr. Ilymtliat
"The Chinese Government has been
only loo kind to these people in
giving them the capital position of
Macao to live in free." In
the name of the Portuguese nation 1
must say to Mr. Hyni, many thanks I
for so much kindness toward us,
from such kind Government as the
Chinese is 1 1
Do 3'ou not know Mr. llym at
least the recent history of your own
Country and that of Macao? You
ought to, when you try to slur the
decendents of the first civilized peo
ple that touched your shores.
And also how many times your
Government has, with very disas
trous results, tried to snatch Macao
from us violating a covenant on the
part of your Government when it
ceded Macao to Portugal on the con
dition of exterminating tho pirates
from there, which were the terror of
China. And which covenant Portu
gal fulfilled by transporting them
fiom there to Peru, Havana and
lately to California.
About 18 10 being the experiment
which cost more to your Country
with the lost of about 2,000 men and
10 eight-pounders at the hands of
081 Portuguese soldiers near the
village of Pah Sail Leong, and twice
afterwards without any serious re
sult, until recently a treaty was
signed by the two Powers ceding
Macao to Portugal forever on the
condition of not being sold to any
other Power, (with the fear of Eng
land being the purchaser as some
Mr. Ilym speaks of S300,000taxcs
collected by the Portuguese Govern
ment from his countrymen at Macao.
Is not the bulk of those taxes from
the fantan gambling dens your coun
tiymen keep there and lotteries,
which if not allowed, your country
men would all lly, as they now are
doing on account of the Wai Seing
Lottery being changed to Canton?
Editou lh;r.Li:nx: M:vy I
through your columns what the
perintendent of Public Woiks
his deputy diaw their pay from
public treasury for,
hire an outside man
is they Iiave to
the building of a small culvert on
King street? Is it because tho Supt.
of Public Works is too busy riding
that Government fed mule, or is it
because he does not understand that
particular kind of woik? If so, there
is an excuse for him. I would also
ask from what appropriation the
money is to be draw n to pay the
extra superintendent or expert?
A Ji:i.n:vi;it ix Economy.
A CAPSIZE AND A SWIM FOR
Mr. II. Z. Austin of Waihee, met
with an accident yesterday evening,
while out boat sailing, that but for
his presence of mind, might have
resulted fatally. Some time ago he
had a boat built for pleasure sailing,
and since her arrival at AVaiheo has
enjoyed tho pleasure of buffetting
the waves of that coral bound coast
and taking long sails seawaid with
out anything nunc serious happen
ing thaji being filled with water sev
eral times while coming in or going
out over the breakers, and as he
was an expert boatman and a good
sailor, no anxiety was felt for his
safety when it became dark last
night and the boat was lost sight of.
The precaution of setting lights at
the landing for him to steer by in
coming in over the breakers was
taken by his wife, and nothing more
wns thought of the matter lor some
time, when anxious thoughts began
to arise -in the minds of those who
wore awaiting his arrival, but when
the minutes dragged into hours and
brought with them no appearance
of the looked-for one, anxiety turn
ed into fear for his safety, and it
was thought advisable that a search
should be made for him. Conse
quently two gentlemen, one of whom
is the writer, were making prepara
tions for a search, when the object 1
of that search turned up alive unci
as well as could be expected, after
having been in the water two hours.
It seems that Mr. Austin went out
in his boat as usual alone, but had
hardly got clear of the breakers
when he observed that tho boat act
ed strangely and would not mind her
rudder; but thinking perhaps that
it was duo to something on his part,
and could be overcome, kept on out
to sea. He got out some distance
when the wind freshened and ho
was obliged to icef his sail, mid
seeing that the wind was increasing
and it was getting dark, tried to
"Inch" and stand in for the shore;
then it was that he was fully con
vinced that there was something the
matter with tho boat, for she would
not stay, IIo then tried to ''wear"
around nnd after considerable
trouble succeeded in doing" so; but
had no sooner got .around than a
severe squall struck her and capsiz
At this time ho was between two
and three miles off shore, and as
the boat was rapidly sinking ho was
obliged to work with alacrity in
order to save himself. Although a
good swimmer he was bo far from
shore and had so many breakers to
go through, ho thought he could not
make it; so he looked about him
for something with which to sustain
his weight while resting. He first
thought of the i udder, but that was
so far under the water, it would
have been almost impossible to have
unshipped it. Ills next thought
was the oars, of which there were
two in the boat when she capsized ;
they had been washed away by tho
heavy sea, but by swimming around
a little he managed to get both of
them, and lashed them together so
as to form a soit of lafl, with which
he succeeded (after being banged
about in the breakers) in getting
ashoic, but in an exhausted condi
tion. After waiting on the beach a
short time, he made his way homo
and thus relieved the anxiety of
those who weic watching for him.
The boat drifted ashore this morn
ing and was picked up by Mr, Aus
tin and some natives.

A NEW PROCESS FOR EXTRACTING
The Government of India have
published for the information of the
public, through the Bulletin of the
Royal Gardens, Kew., some particu
lars of the new process of extract
ing quinine from the cinchona bark
by means of oil. lly the aid of this
piocess, perfected lately by Mr.
Gamine, it is found possible to uti
lize tho Calisaya or yellow-bark va
riety, and to extract from it the
whole of its quinine in a fonn indis
tinguishable chemically or physi
cally from the best brands of Euro
pean manufacture, and this so
cheaply that not merely in times
like the present of depressed mar
kets, but at all periods, it will not
cost the Government more than
twenty-five rupees per pound.
Should all the expectations which
this important discovery has awak
ened be realized, it is believed that
it will lead to the substitution of
Indian-niantifaetuicd quinine for the
febrifuge in the hospitals and dis
pensaries of India, and as a neces
sary consequence to the substitu
tion of yellow bark for red bark in
the Sikkiin plantations. Pall Mall
