U. S. S. ADAMS.
Aimivr.9 l'UOM SAMOA WITH XO l.ATEtt
The U. S. S. Adams, Capt. R. P.
Lcary, arrived iu port at (! o'clock
last evening, twenty-six days from
the Samoan group, and anchored iu
the stream between the U. S. S.
Alert and tho British yacht Nyanza.
She left Apia on the Oth of Decem
ber, lliu same day as the Royal Mail
steamer Zoahindia, consequently
does not bring any later news con
cerning the state of affairs at Apia.
The Adams experienced lino weather
nearly all the passage. Crossed the
equator on Dec. 27th in long. Ho
dog. W. Steam was used till the
lino was readied, after which only
the sails were used. Took the N.
E. trades in lat. 5 deg. N., thence
had very light winds till off Hawaii,
when a very sevsre gale was en
countered which prevented her pass
ing on the windward side of tho island
nnd obliged her to change the course
and come to Honolulu on the lee
ward side of Hawaii. When the
Adams left Apia there was a cessa
tion of hostilities between the
Tamascse and Malictoa men, hut
there was every appearance of a
battle being fought bcfoio ninny
hours. The U. S. S. Nipsie relieved
the Adams at Apia. She calls hero
for coal and will probably leave for
San Francisco tiie day after the ar
rival of the Australia with the for
eign mail. A number of her olllccrs
were ashore during the cveniii";.
EXCURSION TO PEARL RIVER.
Tuesday, January 1st, was the
7th anniversary of the foundation of
tho "Socicdade Luzitaua Beneil
cente de Hawaii," and through the
efforts of the President, seconded
by Mr. Dillingham, who kindly
placed tho steamer Ewa at his dis
posal for the day, an excursion was
agreed upon to Pearl river harbor,
and a start made at '.) a. m. About
150 members were expected, but
not over GO showed up, owing to
foolish reports being circulated
about poor accommodation and the
sailing qualities of the steamer. As
a matter of fact she is a most com
fortable little vessel and could easily
have accommodated ono hundred
After hoisting the Poitugucse
Hag at the Association Hall on
Punchbowl and saluting it witli 21
guns, and the playing of the na
tional anthem by the band, a march
was made for tlia wharf. A detach
ment of Co. C. of the Honolulu Rifles,
as well as the band, accompanied
Mr. Dillingham drove out to Ewa
and met the party shortly after
lauding, and complying with a re
quest, showed them around a little,
and gave them some notion of the
sito of the coming city. To many
who had never visited the place be
fore, Mr. Dillingham's remarks
were extremely interesting, and the
party carried witli them a wry
favorable impression of the spot.
It is much to be regretted that
the President. P. A. Dias, should
have been taken quite ill on tho trip
down, so much so as to be unable
to land. This is all the more to be
regretted as he was anxious to visit
the place, to enable him to write up
the raihoad and land scheme in his
paper, the Luso. He proposes,
howovcr, to visit the locality again
witli another excursion at an early
date, being desirous of bringing so
important a matter clearly and for
cibh; before his countrymen. The
party enjoyed themselves very
much indeed and returned to the
city shortly after four oclock in the

Col. JM. Thompson, of the Hono
lulu bar, is preparing an Indox
digest of tho points of law decided
by tho Supremo Court of the Hawai
The work will bo in tho alphabet
ical order of the points decided,
with cross references, to tho name
of the case, book, and page, where
tho case is reported in extoiso, and
in this way, it will be time-saving
aud valuable to judges, lawyers and
Col. Thompson's Digest of the
laws of the District of Columbia (a
copy of which wo have seen), was a
complete success, and is an acknow
ledged authority in the Supreme
Court of the United States and Dis
trict of Columbia and the States.
Wo undci stand thai many points
of law have been decided that are
not alluded to in any of the syllabi
of the reports, and that much of
the syllabi simply shows that some
thing was decided, without showing
what was decided, and that Col. T.
will examine every case and include
in his digest every important and
interesting point of law and equity
that has been decided by the court.
The following explanation is given
why the year 11)00 will not be count
ed among leap years. The year is
;5G5 days, live hours and forty-nine
minutes long; eleven minutes are
taken ever' year to make the year
8G5j days long, and every fourth
year wc have an extra day. This
was Julius Ciesar's arrangement.
Where do those eleven minutes
come n om? They conic from the
future, and arc paid by omitting
leap year every hundred years.
But if leap year is omitted regu
larly every hundredth year, in the
course of four hundred years it is
found that the eleven minutes taken
each year will not only have been
paid back, but that a whole day
would have been given up. So
Pope Gregory XIII., who improved
on Ciesar's calendar in 1582, de
creed that every ccnturial year
divisible by four should be a leap
year after all. AVe therefore bor
row eleven minutes each year, more
than paying our borrowings back by
omitting three leap years in three
ccnturial years, and square matteis
by having a leap year in tho fourth
centurial year. Pope Gregory'
arrangement is so exact, and the
borrowing aud paying back balance
so closely, that we borrow more
than wc pay back to the extent of
only one day iu .'38GG years.
Germany lias recently made such
rapid strides for supremacy in the
markets of the world, that her latest
move in this direction will not excite
surprise. A direct line of steamers
is to be established between Ham
burg and Calcutta. The project is
all the more significant, as at pre
sent there is no distinctly German
line trading witli India. The North
German Lloyd's, running to Austra
lia, only touch at Colombo, and are.
therefore, for all practical purposes,
useless as regards the Indian trade.
Should ho wevcr.thc new line he estab
lished to Calcutta, some British steam
ship companies, and more especially
the Peninsular and Oriental, will
sustain a loss of valuable freight.
The latter corporation, which not so
long ago had the monopoly of the
Eastern carrying trade, is thus
threatened with further competition.
It has in many instances carried all
before it on previous occasions
when rival companies have encroach
ed on its preserves, and it may be
still depended on to hold its own
against the new German enterprise.
The P. and O. Company are on the
spot, they have steamers without
number, and an old established re
putation, and even if other means
fail they can carry the war into the
enemy's country by instituting a
service of their own between Ham
burg aud Calcutta. English ship
owners will oiilj be quickened into
action by tho latest move in tho di
rection of German commercial de
velopment. f Home News.
