Tlio following letter, addressed
to tho editor of tho Bulletin, wna
received by the last mail from
Win. T. Porter, tho scenic nrtist
who was recontly employed nt the
Hawaiian Opera House in this
Aloha! I, should liko to bring
boforo your readers an oxtraordi
nary opportunity for showing tho
vast American Nation somo knowl
edge of tho beauties and resources
of the Hawaiian Islands in a man
nor which nb amount of literary
description can do.
The hundredth year of tho ad
mission into the Union of tho
Stato of Tennessee is to bo cele
brated from tho 1st of May to tho
1st of November by a national and
international exposition of arts,
sciences and products, which, it is
bolioved, will rival tho famous
Chicago's "World's Fair.
Over two million dollars have
been subscribed for tho buildings,
and the exposition, which will be
hold at Nashville, will be iu the
very canter of twenty-fivo millions
of population, being geographical
ly situato practically equi-distant
from all tho principal cities east
of the Rocky Mountains.
Whon I arrived in San Fran
cisco, after a delightful voyage on
tho Australia, full of the pleasant
memories of biippy times iu your
lovely city and of tho friendship
shown rno there, I found awaiting
mo a vory important matter. Mr.
Sydney Ohidley, a bro'uer scerii,
artist of very high reputation
throughout Araorica, with another
gentleman, an enginoer resident
in San Francisco, had obtained a
concession from tho authorities ut
Nashville for an amusement ex
hibit of vory novel and beautiful
charactor, which when they offor
ed me a share in tho ontoj prise
seomed so promising that I have
entered into it with enthusiasm.
Tho idea is to havo an artificial
plonsuro canal, half a mile in
length, passing in a sinuous
course through an aero of ground.
The sides of tho canal will bo
masked with a panoramic repre
sentation of a trip through Cali
fornia to tho Hawaiian Islands,
painted iu the vory highest stylo
of cyclorainio art, thu pictures
having real foregrounds built
down to tho water's edge, and
matched in with tho painting,
producing tho same illusory effect
of nature as tho oyclorama.
Tho central turn of tho canal is
to be a reproduction of the famous
Valley of the Yosemito. Tho
Island portiou of tho Pano
rama would commence immedi
ately after the view of San Fran
cisco by showing the Australia
pussing through tho Qoldon Gate
at Bunsot." Then views of tho
Pacific by moonlight in mid
ocean, sunsets.oto. ; then Diamond
Head and Wnikiki; then the on
tranco to Honolulu harbor; a
panoramio view of tho city to tho
sugar and coffee plontations, etc. ;
then the Volcano, with grand
mechanical effects of oruptiou,
etc., which would occupy about
1000 feet in length.
Naturally suoh a picturo, be
sides acquainting multitudes of
people, through the best medium,
that of tho eyos, with tho natural
beauties and resources of the Pa
radiso of ho Pacific, would afford
n opportunity for individual in
terests to bo brought into notice
It is a moderato estimate
that our boatB will carry
throe quartors of n million
people, as wo aro only going
to chargo ton conts each, and fit
up tho boats, with silk cushions,
awnings for shado and all luxu
Suoh a display of tho rich sugar
and coffoe fields and tho noble city
of Honolulu would do moro to en
lighten the American people upon
tho real magnitudo of the question
of nnnexiitinn I linn iinrnv if nlli.
cinl report however instructive,
anil i tim convinced that if the
American people, as a body, know '
more about tho Islands their en
thusiasm would have no hounds.
Indifference is tho child of igno
Tho enterprise will, including
tho skilled labors of .the
artists and engineer cont
about 87,000.00, and wo there
fore determined to lot the
great advantages of tho panorama
by way of advertisement at a rate
about eouivalent to the nntitnl
cash expenditure, which will be j
ror tno Hawaiian section about
S1500.00. This would onablo a
magnificent display to bo made,
and if tho oxecutivo government,
active merchants and property
holders of the Islands all con
tribute a proportion, tho expense
to each would bo quite insignifi
cant compared with tho results.
I and my colleagues in tho
matter have,thereforo, determined
to make this proposition to tho
Hawaiian poople, and vory res
pectfully ask your valuable and
influential aid iu making it pub

Ho said tho Lenhi, whilo soiling

without a rudder, and auchored

While attempting lo take her
inside tho next morning, she went
ashoio on tho icef south of tho
entrance. A survey was held, and
the unlucky bail: was declared a
wreck. She was aftorward bold
at auction for tho bouofit of whom
it might concern. Mr. C. A.

Tho Leahi is said to bo about
twelve or fifteen years old, and of
Danish build. She was ouce
wrecked on tho Central American
Coast, and lay there for a your.
At tho time of her latest mishap
tho ill fated bajk was owned
chiefly by Chas. Nohon of Sun
Francisco, Hon. W. C. Wilder al
so having an interest. Mr. Wight
thought thero was no insurance
on the vessol.
After sailing from Nowcastlo
last year, tho Leahi had to put in
to Sydnoy on account of some
mishap, and whilo thoro was in
collision with it smaller craft. Sho
Uually got away from Sydnoy on
Decembor 28. Hor tonuago is
about 557. The master's namo
was JohuBon. Ho had formorly
been mate of tho samo vossol.
If tho weather hold good, tho
purohasor of tho wreck may make
a profit on his speculation, but if
gales aud violent brcakors prevail
tho craft will go to pieces.
