principals of a nautical school, where, for
sixteen years, young seamen, who. have
wished to quality themselves as mates and
captains, have attended, when their respec

The school was founded by CapL William
Thorns, author or the "Practical Navigator"

work by his wife. At his death, bis son-in-law,
Captain James II. Brownlow, succeeded

had' made several voyages with him and
studied navigation, both practically and
theoretically, After Ms decease, tbo two
ladies conducted the school, and, during the
late war, prepared for tbe navy two thousabd
mates and captains of tbe merchant service,
whose knowledge of navigation was inexact,

Fire at Kauni. On Monday night last,
tbe honse of Fobakn, the native missionary
preacher at Kalihl was destroyed by fire.
The alarm was given at 11 o'clock and the
neighbors aronsed,-bnt no means -were at
hand to eavc the premises. Tbe honse was a
small frame one, bought some months since
by bis congregation, and moved near the
church for his residence. lie is a blind man
and was sleeping alone in the honse at tbe
time it caught fire. lie was aroused from
eleep by a feeling of heat, and went outside
on tbe verandah with his mat and pillows,
but finding it warm there, finally went over
to the church, about forty feet distant, to
finish his night's rest. By this time, the
cause of his uneasiness became apparent by
the burstlDg out of tbe flames, and had tbe
house been a thatch one, we believe the blind
preacher would have perished, ere he conld
have been aroused In time to escape. The
church was in great danger of catching fire,
but was saved.
Tnx Volcano. We have news from Kcala
kekua up to tbe 15th Instant, and lrom Ullo
to the 14th, by tbe A"oa Tucket and thcdiinte.
No eruption has yet made Its appearance in
the Kau district, although a light was seen
on Tbureday night on tbe top of Mauna Loa,
and It Is believed that an eruption has taken
place on or near Pobaku-banalei. The ifght
ceased to show Itself on Friday. In Kapapala
and Wiobinu tbe earth seems In almost con
stant motion, and noises are heard as tbongli
the lava in motion below was surging against
the thin crust above. All the phenomena are
similar to those which proceeded the crup
tion at Kahuku April ?tb, and it is likely the
mountain will burst out again, perhaps this
time, in the neighborhood of Kapapala, and
another torrent of lava be discharged into
the sea. Pointing to this, is the fact tbat the
fire In KiViuca has again disappeared. Tbe
south lake, after filling up, lias cooled so
tbat it can be passed over on foot Tbe in
habitants of Kau, apprehensive of danger
and tired of the continuous earth movement,
are leaving tbe district for safer ground until
the volcano shall have cither emptied itself,
or subsided to a safe repose.
Chapter of Accidents. On Saturday
considerable consternation was caused in
Nuuanu street by runaway horses. A horse
and carriage, belonging to J. Perry, was
being driven by a boy near Mclntyrc's house
iu the Valley, when a dog springing out sud
denly at the horse frightened him, and be set
off at full speed down the valley road. A
vigorous kick dislodged the body of the
wagon and the boy, leaving tbcm in the
road, and with tbc,whecls only, the animal
made his way into town. lie ran into and
started off the wagon and horse of J. H.
Wood, which was standing near Mr. Bart
lctt's residence, which also came into town
flying. The Perry horse running through
Nunauu street ran afoul of Rev. B. W. Par
ker's little carriage and broke it Into frag
ments. Mr. Parker seeing be conld not avoid
being struck, got out and left tbe horse and
wagon to meet its coming fate. A milk
wagon received next the blow, and its horse
started off, but found blmEclf and wagon
capsized at once, as the prudent driver bad
bis hind and fore wheel lashed together, a
precaution against accidents. Leaving tbe
wheels on a post on Nuuanu 6treet, tbe Perry
horse ran as far as the salt ponds, makal of
Kawalabao, and was there stopped. Mr.
Parker's horse brought up near the wharf,
and Mr. Wood's In front of the Post Office.
Two wagons entirely demolished, and two
not materially injured were the results of
this chapter of accidents.

The poison (arsenic,) was put into a bowl of
rice, which was eaten about 9 o'clock, and
the party died between l and 2 o'clock of tbe
same day. There are a great many witnesses,
and the evidence is entirely circumstantial
It appears that abont ten days before Kokai
died, Alona, another Chinaman, bought ar

he died, Alona was seen giving Mary a bottle
containing a white powder, like pja, and that

Mr. Editor. Tbe Advertiser comments
upon the form of contract published In your
two last issues. Forms of contract arc very
convenient, and used more or less In convey
ances and various departments of business.
Necessarily they must be general in their
character, and where they are Inapplicable
they of course will not be used. Tbcy are
used merely as a matter of convenience and
to rave labor. One object of tbe use of
forms is also tbat they are supposed to be
drawn In conformity to law, which all con
tracts must be, in order to be legal. I sym
pathlze with the Government in its wish to
protect the laborer from oppression, but the
employer also should be protected in his
rights. I suppose a contract for service ter
minates npon the decease of the employer,
but it seems to mc that in this, the law is de
fective, that is, that some equitable rule
should be established by which laborers upon
an estate should be bound to fulfill their con
tracts to the heirs or executors, otherwise a'
large estate might be mined if the owner
6honld die at a critical time when the crop
wasjust ready to be taken off should they
choose-to claim their legal privilege and
leave at once.
I can see no oppression to the employed in
their being obliged to fulfill the contract, but
on tbe contrary it seems only just, and great
injustice to tbe estate of the employer for
them not to do 1L If In this respect the form
is not legal it cannot of course be enforced,
but it seems to me tbat In this respect the
form is right and the law wrong not so
however, In some other respects. A con
tract fixing no penalties of non payment,
when the employed neglects his duties, is
not jnst to the employer, and a positive con
tract to payso much for each calendarmonth,
irrespective of any delinquency of the em
ployed does not appear practical. Again,
planters are compelled by circumstances to
make large advances to laborers, which are
to come out of their wages, they generally
contrive to spend it all, before tncy commence
service, and then they must draw nearly
their full wages for their current expenses,
so that debt to the employer Is almost nn
avoidable at the close of the term. This
state of things is undesirable and unprofita
ble to the planter, but it is also unavoidable ;
he submits reluctantly but has no alterna
tire, but to do so or sec his crop spoil. And
it seems to me tbat under this state of things
it is no injustice or hardship to the laborer
to be bound a reasonable time further, if at
the expiration of his contract he is still in
debtcd. He has compelled the planter to
trust him in the beginning or be would not
work for him. The planter must have his
work or lose his crops. He has to advance
money and lose his interest, as well as risk
the principal in case of death or sickness,
or what is sometimes the case, the employees
spend their advance and secretly contract
again with some one else what is wanted
is equity to both parties.
The custom of paying advances is the real
cause of difficulty, to the planter, and of un
easiness to the laborer. He finds himself,
at tbe outset of his contract with a debt,
covering in some cases quite half of the
wages, of the period contracted for, aud not
to be got fid ol, except by the most rigid
application of tbe wages left him, to the
supply of clothing and other necessaries.
The custom has been derived from that of
the whalesbips In this port, but the ship has
this security that the Hawaiian once on
board, cannot contract further debts, cannot
get away, and must work out the advance.
It is not so with the planter. Janus.
Another oscillation of the ocean, Elmilar
to that whicli occurred at tbe time of tbe
great earthquako of April 2nd, on Hawaii,
showed itself In Honolulu harbor last week,
the movement being much larger and also
more rapid than the former one. It was first
observed by the natives ou Fisherman's point
during tbe night of Thursday, who finding
themselves in no especial danger from the
rise of the sea, paid little, attention to the
On Friday, the 14th inst., at seven o'clock,
A. si., the attention of Mr. Emmes, whose
shipyard is at the water's edge, was attracted
by seeing tbe water three feet lower than
ordinary. It began to rise immediately,
making three feet and four Inches in fonr
minutes; it stopped, and then rose six inches
more, making the rise three feet and ten
inches in eight minutes. It then flowed out
again; the total between the highest and low
est point being sixty-four inches. At this
time of the morning tbe oscillations occupied
twenty minutes. The movement at balf-pasi
eight o'clock, as observed by Captain Daniel
Smith, at the Cbarlton wbarf, was that the
water from Its lowest point rose thirty-one
inches, reaching its highest point in nine
minutes; twenty-three minutes afterward it
reached Its lowest point again. At two min
utes past nine o'clock it flowed in again,
rising this time only twenty-seven inches in
fifteen ' minutes, then ebbed in twenty-five
The oscillations contlnned each time slow
er, but at fifteen minutes past two o'clock,
r. M., tbe tide being then at the flood, the
wave reached its highest point eighteen
inches above tbe highest spring tides. The
sea at this time was well up to tbe tops of
the wharves ; floated the spars in Mr. Emmes'
shipyard, and at WaikikI, flowed over the top
of tbe beach Into the yards of some of the
dwellings there. The movement continued
all of Friday, and through Saturday was also
perceptible though gradually decreasing until
fonr o'clock, r. h., when equilibrium seemed
to be accomplished.
Onr tides rise and fall thirty inches; the
greatest difference observed on Friday was
slxtv-four inches, but probably tbe first oscil
lation of T&rsday nigbt was the greatest one.
The phenomena was observed at Koolau,
but did not attract especial attention. At
Kabnlul, Mani, the rise and fall exceeded ten
feet, and along the South Kona coast, Hawaii,
was over twelve feet.
Some Hawaiiaus fishing off Kealekeakua
were alarmed by what seemed to be thumps
nuder their canoe, and made all speed for the
shore; it was the commencement of the
oscillation at that place. Tbe earthquake
must hare reached Honolulu, for on Friday,
both Mr. Flitner and Captain Smith found
their transit instruments out of level. That
of Mr. Flftncr is placed npon a block of gran
ite of several tons weight, planted on the
coral which underlies the town. -Nothing
but an earthquake would have stirred this
solid block. The droop, though vary slight,
of both tbe Instruments, was toward the
By the Annie from Hilo, we learn that tbe
wave commenced there at midnight of Thurs
day, and ceased on the following Saturday.
The ebb and flow continued at iuterrals.of.a
few minutes, up to Friday noon. At high wa

flooded, and the Waiakca bridge swept away"

White Ants. A wood boring species of
ant,-which has lone been on tbe Islands, bnt
not attracted particular attention, is getting
rather destructive of late. The furniture
men have had occasion to notico the ant
from articles brought to them for repairs, as
both hard and soft wood alike are attacked
by them. Sofas, bureaus, picture frames,
and other furniture has been eaten by them,
so that nothing bnt a tbin shell remained of
the parts. So also timbers in houses, fences,
and even growing trees, show marks of these
voracious ants, to those who have paid any
attention to the matter. The males are red
and winged, and at this season of the year
fly into the honse in swarms, attracted by
the lamps. Mr. C E. Williams believes tbam
to be the same ant which Is so destructive to
timber in Australia, and.tbat they have come
hither In tbe Sydney Inmbcr and houses Im
ported from there fifteen years ago. Our
common black ant Is an enemy to the whito
ants and speedily clean them out
On wiags of lightning through the land
Swift do tbe awful tidings fir
"Dealt by a dastard's traitor hand,
Our prince, of mortal wound must die."
"Maj Uearen the fell assassin jield,
Secure in dungeon dark to Ho
Till vengeance deep, his doom hath seal'd.
And death condign hath dos'd his eje."
Thus was the voice of indignation loud,
While gentler sorrow mourn'd in tears.
And onco the humble and the proud
Were one, made equal by their fears.
Where late around the festire board
Australia's loyal sons were set,
Now mournful faces eager crowd.
And looks of mutual inquiry met.
Commingled in each saddened face
Behold the deep emotions of the soul.
See nature there her anguish trace,
And lore reveal supreme control.
Each heart Its separate burden bears,
Tet each, through one great common cause.
The real weeds of mourning wears
And not the mockery of fashion's laws.
Bat jet the whispered mnrmnr grows
41 The prince his wound may still survive "
Then each pale face with hope 're-glows.
And certainty declares the prince w ill live.

To hail his great delivery, and praise

So let your thanks with deep contrition blend,
For in your wild Idolatry,

Then may your thanks acceptance find,
And grateful rise your praise to Heaven,

The Return from the Derbv. The most
extraordinary scene probably ever witnessed
on a Derby night took placn on tbat portion
of tbe road lvlnir between Clanbam Common
and tho Elephant and Castle. Owing to tbe
targe nnmoer oi venicies oi every acscnrition
that went down to Epsom in. the morning it
was anticipated tbat considerable confusion
would occur after dusk In cvcnlntr on that
part of tbe road near to London; and to
provide for tbe contingency a strong body
of the L, PandV divisions of police, both
horse and foot, were placed along the road
between the above-named points. From
seven to eight o'clock a continuons double
line of vehicles came streaming Into town
and were kept in tolerably good order by the
police, moving on slowlyjbut steadily. At
obout eight o'clock, however, wben tbe traf
fic began to grow very thick, the leading
horses In a four-horse van, when near tbe
loins at Kcnsinirton. fell down, completely
blocking up aud stopping the traffic for about
ten minutes before they could be got upon
their IeL'3. This ten minutes did all the mis
chief. The drivers of some of the carriages
beblnd impatient to get on, uroKo tnc line
which had hitherto been well kept. Tbo
example was speedily fjllowed by others,
and In a few minutes, for tbe last two miles
along the road, all was confusion and uproar.
In every mrecuon migui oe ueara tue crasu
112 in of tailboards and panels; wheels cot
locked together, and for nearly and hour
vans, omnibuses, barouches, bruughams,
cabs, wagonettes, carts of all descriptions,
co6termongcrs, donkey-barrows, etc., were
mixed up together in one apparently Inextri
cable mass. Good humor, however, prevail
ed in all quarters. Many of the occupants of
the vehicles, especially those ontsidc the
vans and omnibuses, seemed to enjoy tbe
scene, and beguiled tbe time by singing some
of the popular airs of the day, and unmerci
fully chaining those who showed any disposi
tion to crumble at the state of affairs. To
add to the excitement and confusion of the
scene, the crowds of spectators assembled
along the road to witness tbe return home,
always very large, was, on this occasion, ow
ing probably to the finness of tbe evening,
nearly double the usual number, and it was
extraordinary that no serious accident hap
pened. During the time the block took
place, bauds of roughs and Idle boys amused
themselves by pelting the more respectable
occupants of the vehicles with small paper
bags of flour, evidently made np and sold
for the purpose. This gave rise to several
fights, during tbe continuance of which tbe
llght-llnccred gentry were plying a good
trade. By dint of great exertion on the part
of the police, after nearly an hour's delay,
tbey got the vehicles again in motion, and
they slowly pursued their way toward the
"Elephant." As late as eleven o'clock, one
nnbroken line of vehicles was still pourine
into town, audit was evident it' would be
long alter midnight before the traffic would

don. The idea ofreachlmr tbe Rocky Mount
ains in a fortnight from Charing Cross, is
somewhat startling, even In these days. One
hundred and twenty-five years ago, it took
that time from London to Edinburg.
We are now enabled to take the train at
Council Blnffs. over the great highway, the
Union Pacific Railroad, on Monday morning,
attend tbe theatre in Salt Lake, Saturday
nigbt, go to church on Sunday and return,
bo back home the next Saturday making
tbe round trip in 11 days. The Salt Lake
mail is now only five days en route between
Salt Lake and Council Bluffs, andby tho 1st
of January next the time will be 'less than
Naturalization. The progress of there
cognition of the American doctrine In Eu
rope Is favorable. Secretary Seward and Min
ister Bancroft are quietly obtaining treaty
after treaty from European Governments,
guaranteeing equal immunities abroad for
American citizens of foreign birth. It will
soon be the law of all Germany that no native
of a German State who has become a bona
fide American citizen shall be held to mili
tary service under tbe old allegiance. There
has been lcss'trouble on this score, latterly,
with other European Powers, but all will
gradually concede the same point. The
English Ministry who were thought tbe most
likely to resist, are reported to view the ap
peal of our Government favorably, and we
may confidently anticipate that Minister
Johnson will be able to effect a satisfactory
agreement ou me suujcct.
