fore the case that the bestccuritles corporate,

poT Wir The port wine district of Portugal
covers an area of broken, precipitous and lofty bills,
through which the Douro Hirer courses say 26 by 6
miles. The soil Is a brown, slaty schist. Ibe grapes
are allowed to shrink, almost -like raisins, before
they are gathered, to promote the greatest conversion
ofsugar. The vintage runs from the last day of
September to the loth of October. Inclusively. The
mah is allowed to stand in vats till thoroughly
fermented. It Is then drawn off Into great ca.ks.
Here it is watched, and the glucoeometer is frequent
ly Introduced, till it indicates the proper time for
drawing off the wine again, when a certain lr
cent of grape brandy is added to rrevent fermenta
tion from going too fir aod to protect the saccharine
eiemeits from being lost. The addition of brandy
is necessary, fir the same reasons, in sherry and
Madeira wines. .... ,.
The wines of the Douro are rested in the Taulta
eighteen months before shipment to London.
Tnr Jnlnt Hmnmlttea of the Auclo-American and

xnesssges of ten words (five .words additional leing
allowed for address, date and signature free) between
Valentla, Ireland, and Plaliter Cove, Nova Scotia, to

J'UIater Cove and east of Valentia will lie an addi

and after the 1st day of September, 18G8.
lUrtwir Tiara In the year 1S6S, 274,293,6(3
ir..r -were carried by day tickets in Great
Britain alone. But this was not all: for in that
year 110,217 periodical tickets were Issued Dy tne
different railways; and assuming half of them to be
annual, one forth half-yearly and the remainder
2uarterly tickets, and that their holders made only
ve Journeys each way weekly, this would give an
additional number of 39,405,600 Journeys, or a total
of SlS.OW.SoS passengers carried in Great Britain in
one year. It is difficult to grasp the idea of the
enormous number of passengers represented by these
figures. The mind Is merely bewildered by them,
and can form no adequate notion of their magnitude.
To reckon them singly would occupy twenty years,
counting at the rate of one a second for twelve hours

Tnc LiGurnocsE. During the past few
days several expeditions have been made to
the point of the reef at the southeastern side
of the entrance of tbe harbor, for tbe purpose
of locating the lighthouse to be erected there.
It is necessary that the light should be on
tbe edge of the reef, so as to mark the chan
nel distinctly and be a guide to vessels seek
ing ta come inside in tbe night. Tbe en
trance is narrow, and with the light set
back on.Xbe reef ninety or a hundred feet, to
be guessed at by vessels, tbe uncertainty
would neutralize the very convenience which
it Is expected will be gained by having a light
on the reef. Tbe structure is planned to be
to be set on piles the room to be clear of
the swash- of tbe sea at tbe highest tides,
and the lantern to be twenty-five feet above
tbe sea, visible eight miles off. The only
obstacles to the swell and surf which break
with great fury ou tbe reef in the kona
season, will be seven columns or piles ou
which the structure rests. With these secur
ed fairly in tbe coral there is but little danger
that citberathc sea or gales will damage it
or carry it ofC It was thought that with tbe
piles tipped with iron screws and firmly fas
tened in six feet of tbe coral, that a founda
tion sufficiently sure could be obtained. Tbe
object of these boat expeditions has been to
bore these holes, but tbe first trial proved
that after passing through three to four feet
of coral, a layer of sand was reached that
seems to be superimposed on a bed of soft
mud or ooze, into this tbe drill sank by its
own weight. At the trials last week, the depth
reached was 13 feet'below tbe surface of the
coral, or twenty-three feet from that of tbe
sea, and rocky bottom not reached. It is
very likely that the ledge overhangs Just at
the locality where the lighthouse is to be
placed, so that the drill passes through it and
will reach the reef again at a depth corres
ponding to tbe bottom of tbe harbor. This
necessary extension of tbe length of the piles
will add somewhat to the estimated cost of

Tbe boring is made from a floating stage,
and cannot be done except on quiet days,
when the smoothness of tbe sea permits,
which docs not happen every day at this sea
son of tbe year, with "the trades blowing
freshly. The appropriation for tbe lighthouse
is $8,500, a small sum, bnt enough proba
bly to erect one on the plan proposed. One
built of stone and made proof against the
force of tbe sea would cost a very large sum.
The placing of a lighthouse on the reef has
for years past been discussed, and at one
time, many tbtnght to build one and call it
Cook's Light, would be tbe best disposal of
the fund collected to raise a memorial to the
great navigator, whose name is associated
with tbe re-dlecovery of these islands in the
last century. But the necessity of a light
there has not been urgent, and its import
ance to coasters and the shipping has not
been 6trongly felt, and therefore no deci
sive movement heretofore has been made.
But the convenience of it to tbe coasters,
and its value to ships in dangerous weather,
and4bc necessity of it for steamers and tran
sient vessels will, we think, be proved con
clusively, as seamen become accustomed to
depend on the light in making the harbor.
New Musical IseTncMExT. By an item
in one of our exchanges, we notice the pro

the Orchestral Piano, made by Messrs. Hal

hollowcdout on one side, is made straight,
so that both sides are alike. This "brings the

nearly one-third more of the sounding-board
than has ever beeD attained before. The
action is light, delicate and artistic, while its
power Is increased four-fold. The tone Is
remarkable for its sweetness, clearness and
brilliancy, while its singing qualities are
more like the organ than piano. This instru

before attempted, and as its success is beyond
doubt, it will make a stir in the musical

tendency of Its articles, if it supposes that
they have no effect detrimental to the pas
sage of the Reciprocity Treaty for which
it represents Itself as having labored heart

of this nation.
Tbe continual representation of tbe Hawaii
an Government and its officials as base, un
just, ignorant and incapable, is nottbeconrse
to command the respect of tbe American
Government, whose favor is sought.
That personal piques, prejudices and jeal
ousies should allow It to raise a hue and cry
prejudicial to what it professes to regard a
matter of vital Interest to this nation, by
Buccring at and belittling the agents sent,
even though not such as it would select for
such mission ; and by representing tbe labor
system of the country as foul and oppressive,
betrays a lack of penetration and shrewdness
which to business men is astonishing, and
is proof that there Is something wanting in
the head, or else a savor of the spirit
which must either " rule or ruin."

Ordered, That the Secretary lay tbe foreeo-
ing Resolution before the President of the
Attest: J. W. Foi-sey, Seo'y-
In furtherance of the humane policy adopted
by tbe Government I represent, I also deem it
my duty to call the attention of all whom it may
concern, to an Aet entitled "An Act to pro
hibit the Coolie Trade by American Citizens
and American Vessels," approved, February
19, 1862, which provides :
1st That no citizen or resident of the Uni
ted States shall prepare any vessel to procure
or carry from China or eltcw here," persons
known as " Coolies," to be disposed of, or
sold, or trans'ferred, for any term 0 yean, or
for any time whatever, o terrante or appren
tice, or to he held io tertiee or lalor. Any
vessel owned by citizens of the United States
in whole or In part, so employed, shall be for
feited to tbe United States.
2d Every person building, equipping, send
ing to sea, or aiding to prepare in any way.
or navigating as master, factor, agent, owner
or otherwise, any vessel belonging in wholo or
in part to any United States citizen, or regis
tered, enrolled or licensed within the United
States to bo employed in the above trade, or
in anywise aiding or abetting therein, shall be
liable to bo indicted therefore, and on convic
tion, punished by a fine not exceeding two
thousand dollars, and imprisonment not ex
ccedinjr one year.
3d Any citizen of the United States who
shall, contrary to the true intent and mean
ing of this Act, take on board, or receive, or
transport any such persons, for the purpose of
disposing of them as aforesaid, shall be liable
to be punished as before mentioned.
4th Free and voluntary emigrants may be
taken upon the certificate of the U. S. Consul
or Consular Agent at tbe port where they em
bark, which certificate is to be given to the
master of the vessel only upon satisfactory
evidence that such emigration is actually free
5th All -United States laws applicable
to the carriage of passengers by U. S. mer
chant vessels apply also to all vessels own
ed in whole or in part by citizens of the
United States, or registered or licensed with
in the United States, carrying passengers
between foreign ports, with the same penal
ties and forfeitures.
6th Tbe President of the United Stales is
authorized to direct United states war vessels
to examine all vessels navigated or owned in
whole or in part by citizens of the" United
States whenever there is reasonable cause to
suppose such vessels are engaged in any"ray
in violation of this Act.
The foregoing is simply an abstract of the
law, which will be found in full on page 340,
volume 12, of the U. S. Statutes at large.
