New York. Tho editorial correspondciit
of tho Victoria Cvlonld, thus discourses of
the great metropolis of the Atlantic :
New York has grown greatly since the pc-
riod of my first visit, upwards oi twelve
years ago. Miles of brick buildings now
stand where then were forests ttrjd cornfields,
and numerous lines of horse railways inter
sect nearly all the principal thoroughfares.
New Yorkers appear to hare laid aside their
republican simplicity, and entered upon a
style of living and extravagance worthy of
the aristocratic families of the old world.
The private residences on 5th Avenue arc
truly grand structures. Stewart, tho dry
goods prince, has one under, way at the
corner of 54th Street and 5th Avenue, which
will be the largest and most eijpcnslve pri-
vate structure on the continent. Two million
dollars is the figure to be expended upon the
building, and at host $1,500,000 on the furni
ture, paintings and ground decorations.
Stewart is alio enlarging his great business
palace by an addition of one aero and three
?uarters in extent, free from partition walls,
t is rumored that he designs opening the ad
dition as a general store that is, a store
where every article in treneral use, from a
clawhammer to a Broclie shawl, or from a
pound of sugar to a pair of boots, may be
obtained without stepping outside the build
ing. Three buildings are in progress on Broad
way, two for life insurance companies, And
one for a banking firm, each of which will
cost a million of dollars. In Brooklyn,
building Is going on even more rapidly than
In New York. The buildings, though less
costly, are nevertheless magnificent. Rents
art) high; a brick house with nine rooms
readily commanding a rental of tl.-XO, and I
hear of some dwellings that rent for $3,000.
As soon as the foundations of a house are
.laid, a dozen applicants make their appear
ance to rent it.
Price are awful. Flour, of a quality that
no British Columbia house-wife would make
into bread, costs $17 per barrel ; beef and
mutton, 2S and SO cents per pound i veal, S3
cents, and every otber necessary in propor
tion. It is true, these prices are at currency
rates, but In a city where gold and silver arc
unknown except" to brokers; where the ex
hibition of a .four-bit piece in a window
draws a crowd of admirers who welcome it
as an old but cot forgotten friend; where
the sight of $5 in gold in the hands of a
"soverelcn," would secure him the nomina
' tion of Alderman; where all contracts are
made on a greeuback basis, it will be seen
tbat the coet of living in New York is rela
tively higher than in Victoria. For example:
Here, laborers receive $i50 per day In cur
rency, and pay the prices I have quoted;
while at Victoria, they receive S3 and $2.50,
and pay one half less than their New York
contemporaraies pay in greenbacks.
The Itemize? of the Bulletin gives the
following ludicrous incident at the last sail
ing of the Steamer Japan Aug 3d.
At coon the lines were taken in, and the
vessel started. It would have gone out and
on its voyage in the easiest manner: but a
amlrtttmpt occurred which was certainly
mostcnexpected. A pastry cook, who had
gone ashore for yeast, arrived with the article
Just as the vessel was a little too far away
from the wharf for him to get on board.
But this was not all: he was & that condi
tion which a temperance lecturer would
characterize as a "perfect example." The
"yeast." it was said had proved too power
ful for the cook, although he had been in the
habit of carrying it before. On arriving at
the end of the wharf, and seeing the vessel
just off, the intoxicated man seemed stnnned
and dropped the yeast pot, which an ac
commodating cargodor picked np and threw
a board the steamer. Tho moment the yeast
pot arrived a scattering was observed on
board the steamer just where it landed, but
nothing more was known to those on shore.
Tbc vessel was stopped the cook placed In a
small boat and conveyed alongside the
steamer and hoisted in. By this time the
tide bad got tho steamer slightly stem down
stream. It then became somewhat difficult
to get it around and bow down but this was
effected by aid of a lib and steam, and thus
the vessel went on her journey.

fruit useful in fevers, and as a cooling drink
is now in full bloom all over town, and

Hot Dat. Last Sunday was one of the
hottest days of the season. The mercury
stood at S9 from 11 to 4 o'clock in the day.
The southerly wind that has prevailed for
several days, fails to temper the burning,
fierce rays of the mid-day sun. A sweltering
individual, who exposed his thermometer to
the rays of the sun, found the glass not long
enough to express the dreadful beat that
pedestrians had to endure, and his conclusion
was that It was a fortunate thing the thermo
meter was no longer.
Mr. G. Rhodes, offers at auction, next
Saturday, the remnant of tho wooden build
ing now in the rear of his new stone store.
The timber in it is still in excellent order,
and there is quite enough good lumber to
build another smaller house. With Its de
molition another old Honolulu laud-mark
will have disappeared, to make way for the
march of improvement.
Errata. In the measurements of the
land-slide at Kelwa, by Rev.s T. Coan, as
given in our 4ssue of Sept. 2nd, thenys an
error in the width, which is stated to be in
the " centre two and a-half miles." It should
be half a mile wide. So, also, tbc eruptions
from the fissures at NuknpUl, stated "to be
extensive." They are cot extensive, as the,
lava, though boiling over in fire different
places, was cot In quantities sufficient to
spread itself to any distance from the fissures.
The Autumnal Equinox. Last Monday
the sun crossed the line on its way to the
South. We usually about Ibis time have
some demonstration of the elements, either
of wind or rain, but so far the weather has
been simply hot and oppressive, with calms
and light airs from the southward. The effect
upon the human animal is to cause a feeling
of lassitude and a disinclination to exertion
of any kind. Those who profess to be
weatherwlse, prophecy a blow from the
Southward before long.

bring you a young swarm of bees, hive it for

The funeral of Mr. R. G. Lawrence was
largely attended, on Sunday afternoon, from
bis late residence. The religious services
were conducted by Rev. S. C. Damon. A
large concourse of foreign residents assem
bled at the house, and followed the remains
to the family vault, in Nuuanu Valley. There
were no less than thirty-three carriages in
the procession, besides cumbers of pedes
trians. The appearance of so many carriages
reminded one forcibly of the contrast be
tween the "present and the time when Mr.
Lawrence first landed on these Islands, (IS22,
when the only wheeled vehicle to be seen
was an occasional ox-cart.
Honolulu Oltmpic Club. This institu

Monday evening, bat during the past year
prospered far beyond the expectations of all

Saturdat Afternoon at the Fish Mar
ket. Saturday afternoon Is the time to see
the native population of Honolulu, especial
ly the femalo portion, out in full force. From
four o'clock until sundown, tho space devo
ted to fish and meat stalls, makal of the iron
foundry. Is crowded with customers, chaffer
ing and bargaining for their Saturday night's
and Sunday's supply of fish. The dealers,
standing behind their tables, are loud in pub
lishing the fine qualities and cheapness of
their wares, which consist of fish of many
varieties that have a familiar look to the for
eign eye, and many more that are quite
strange in shape and color; lire crawfish,
with their projecting eyes, crawling about
the board ; queer looking sea-eggs, with their
yellow or red contents; slimy, disgusting
looking squids; shell-fish, such as dUpa &ni
opViit; piles of limu, or sea-weed, the smell
of which is anything but attractive ; and so
forth. At the beef stalls Dear by, huge
chunks of meat, tripe, liver and "all sorts,"
are being sold by tbc rial's worth, while a
monster hog, hot from the oven, is retailed
piecemeal, so much a piece. Meantime the
road leading to the market is lined with itin
erant dealers in roasted shrimps, potatoes,
taro, tobacco, wooden pipes. UU. or wreaths.
and in fact everything tho native appetite
or fancy may incline to. All this while the
crowds of gaily dressed native women and
gala dressed men are rasslnrr to and fro.
making their purchases, aud the jingle of
"uara casn- sounus on tue uoaras, mmgiea
with the ceaseless hum of voices. In which
one can only distinguish the words "hapaha

at tbc Honolulu fish market.
Native Kahunas. It would appear that
the police arc determined to suppress, If pos
sible, the mischievous not to soy murder
ous practices of the nativo kahunas or doc
tors. Several convictions have been had un
der the Act of tho last session to establish a
Hawaiian Board of Health. The section un
dcrwhich the prosecutions are brought, reads
"Sec. 6iv Any native Hawaiian who shall
firactice medicine without having obtained a
icense, as hereinbefore set forth, shall, upon
conviction thereof before a Police or District
Justice, be fined in a sum not less than twen
ty nor more than one hundred dollars."
Under this Jaw one kahuna has been fined
one huudred dollars, another fifty, and an
other twenty, by Police Magistrate Mont
gomery. The prescription of one of these
worthies for a patient suffering from what
appeared to have been inflammatory rheuma
tism, was a drastic purge, and total absti
nence from food and drink for the space cf
five days! The poor victim at the end of
the third day begged that he might be allow
ed a little pol and water. This was denied,
and by the time the five days had expired,
the man could not swallow, and died on the
eighth day after the doctor commenced to
practice on him. It is certainly high time
tbat these murderous practices should be
stopped, and it Is gratifying to sea that the
Police and the Court are fully awake to the
importance of a strict enforcement of the
Watxr-Cart The watering of the streets
is being prosecuted -rary diligently by Messrs.
Ward & Collins, who have taken up the
business. They work as if they compre
hended the situation, and meant to give sat
isfaction to the subscribers. By removing
the loose and friable dirt a necessary pre
liminary to their work they will soon re
duce the streets to a hardness that will make
the sprinkling more effective, with even less
water than they now use. The effect in cool
ing the air is very noticeable, abd very agree
able. The self-imposed tax for this water
cart is very cheerfully borne by the property
holders benefitted by Its operation, but pos
sibly would cause a loud grumble, if the
town had a municipal organization, and the
tax were imposed through its Board. It was
proposed, in the last Assembly, to light the
streets by a local tax, but the Honolulu tax-
Kyers did not see it in that light, and the
m was thrown out. We are not quite
ready to be a city yet!
Compilation or the Pesal Laws. The
Commissioners appointed nnder the Act of
the hut session to compile the Penal Statutes
of tlTe Kingdom, have been engaged in their
duties during the past several weeks. This
work was very much "needed, and when com
pleted will be a very valuable assistance to
all connected with the Courts and the ad
ministration of justice. At present, there
are so many penal provisions in the Civil
Code, and there have been so many amend
ments made to tbe latter by successive legis
latures, that it requires no little study to
know what the laws really are, in some in
stances. Tbe Civil Code was compiled in
1S59, nearly ten years ago, and the necessity
is becoming dally apparent of a recodifica
tion. The Brig Kamchamefa T. is in Foster &
Co.'s hands, who arc putting new spars in
her. The few days that she was without
masts or bowsprit, so changed her appear
ancc, tbat she was beyond recognition by or
dinary observers. She is to be pnt in thor
ough repair, and will be ready for her next
trip to the Guano Islands by tbe 1st of Octo
ber. She cruises through tbe equatorial re
gions, meeting intense heat and copious rains,
which are bard upon wood, and it was fosnd
tbat her mast-heads and spars were much
weakened through decay. The brig Is a good
sailer, and with spars and rigging in prime
order, Capt. Bickman will be able to report
other quick passages besides his last one.
Disastrons Termination, of a Grand
The following ninut-Ing account.f the trial
of a new Invention, which we copy from the
Alia, has an Irresistible patlms In its connec
tion with the destroyed bnin-s and rudely
broken dreams of the inventor. The laugh
of the million Is woven out of the sorrows
oftbeoncmoet undeccitrd by the experi
Some time since, a detailed account was
git en In tbe Alto, of a combination boat, or
tnrce boats nitcnea togeiuer, tanaem sitic,
so as to form one boat, which, by the simple
action of the waves, was to obtain power to
run itself. Invented by Mr. Robertson, a
wortny meccanic, ana constructed at aoriu
ueacn, at an expense oi ,uuu to u,uuu.
The thcorv on which tho boat was con-
structed was a novel and startllngone, and it
needed but a glance to satisfy tbe most skep
tical mat li it worked at an, wnen reduced
to actual practice. It must effect a complete
revolution in navigation, superseding steam
and sail on the ocean and great lakes com
pletely. The rougher the sea, the faster the
boat was to travel.
In his mind's -eve. tbe inventor saw the
new boat traveling the waters like a thing of
iiie, naicg tne diiiows sea-serpent lasnion,
independent of steam or other expensive mo
tive power, enjoying the tempest and fairly
exulting in me storm, m aue time tne ooat
was completed, and a day fixed for the trial
trijj which was to demonstrate tbe immense
value of the new discovery In maritime nav
igation. So confident was the inventor o
its complete success, tbat he made prepara
tions for a voyage of considerable length
not a mere pleasure trip around tbe Bay in
shallow water but a good, honest voyage
outside, on "the sea, the sea, the deep bine
sea," etc. Crackers, cheese and soft-tack,
with a limited supply of liquid refreshments
for a ten days' voyage were taken on board,
ballast was Dut In. and t ebb tide the new
sovereign of tho seas pnt off from Melgg's
Wharf, four persons the Inventor, Capt.
Young, and two sailors being on board.
She was "hardly clear of the wharf when she
swung round, broadside to tho tide, and
commenced bobbing and ducking in a most
unpromlsingiy perverse manner, refusing to
obey tbe helm at all. Occasionally she would
lurch so heavily tbat her wheel-bonse would
uu suumergea, ana some anxiety was jell oy
those on shore for those on board. She made
very good time floating with tbe tide, side
wise Instead of endwise, but while the wheels
revolved they did not seem to give tbe boat
any additional speed. Tho fact was soon ap
parent to those on shore tbat the old experi
ment of a man standing in a wash-tub and
lilting himself over a stono wall by taking
hold of tbe bandies, was being repeated in a
different form. The motive power beiug In
the water, not the boat, as a matter of course
the wheels would turn any light machinery
in the boat, but would not send tbe boat it
self ahead an luch, and tho unmanageable
monster wonld slmnlr move iciA tho water
and not Uirough It. The inventor was, how
ever, sun sanguine mat an nc required was
remilar waves: once outside amonir them
and he was all right tbe rougher it became,
the better it wonld be for ail concerned.
The boat went on like a raft until it bad been
carried oolsldo the Heads, when it went over
tho bar. Into tbe ranch water, and then went
overltsell, by way of varj in' the programme,
without the slightest regard for the feelings
or wishes of the inventor and his friends on
board. Like the old lady who, being told
bv a STnimthlzIn!? friend that elm ahnnlrl
have held fast to the wagon and trusted to
Providence when the old marc ran away,
down hill with her, replied: "Yes, and I did
trust in Providence till the breeching broke,
aud then I thought It was about time to look
out for myself," the party on board now
thought it was about 'tlrnu to strike out on
their own hook. The theory of the inventor
did not contemplate navigating the ocean
keel apperaiost, and it was clearly no time
to stand on abstractions and technicalities.
They had taken a small boat in tow when
lhcy started out, to be used in case they might
nisu to tana on an isiana to cuni turtle, or
anything of that kind, aud tbat fayed them
until tbe pilot-boat Caleb CurtU came to their
rescue aud took them on board. Tbe steam
tug Jleteue was in the vicinity, and her Cap
tain thought he conld tow tbe wreck back to
San Francisco for about $500. but tbe in
ventor did not appear to wink It worth being
rescued at such a fitrure. nnder the circum
stances, and it "went on Chinawards, or oth
crwards, on its own hook: it has probably
reached there by this time.
It Is easy enough, of course, to look wise
after .1 thing has failed, or proven a success,
and say, "I told you so!" but we must ad
mit tbat tbc theorv on which tbe boat was
constructed never met with a great number
oi ueuuvcrs among practical mechanics It
smacked too much of the teroetual motion
idea, on which so many inventive minds have
oeen nopcicssiy wrecKea. .Mr. itouertson
was, however, deeply Impressed with the
belief tbat he had discovered a valuable me
chanical principle, and his heavy loss will be
a source of regret to his many friends. There
was something said in tbe streets last evening
about sending the Avitor litmus in search of
tho back-action self-propelling boat. It being
thought that between wind and water some
thing might be done with one or both, but
wc believe the suirsrestlon did not r rod nee
any practical result. So ends the expert-
mint, we presume, in-spue oi our regret
for the loss and sympathy for the loser, we
are forcibly reminded of the Incident so
graphically related by tbe English poet in
"Three rise men of Gotham
Went to sea in a bowl:
