The End. A formidable rival to Dr. Cum
mlng has arisen in Australia, and has pub
lif bud a book containing the most dreadful
prophecies, supported by incontrovertible
passages of Scripture. Ills renders are in
lormed that, contrary to common belief, tbe
earth, instead of being orange-shape, has the
shape of a pine-apple, and is elongated, in
stead of being flattened at the poles; that
this elongation hat got to such a pitch that
the earth is about to change its centre of
gravity; Rome is to be suddenly overwhelm
ed, and seen no more forever; and the whole
noi'Jicrn hemisphere will share more or less
tr Ue tremendous disturbance. The dwel
lers on the north side of the equator are in
formed, however, that by emigrating im
mediately to Australia they may escape the
threatened catacltsm.and, after it is over,
return tu enjoy the new earth, which is to be
so pervaded witb current of magnetism and
electricity that the soli will be fruitful be
yond the power ofthe liveliest imagination
to conceive, and man Is to Uveas longastbe
oak of the forest. We doubt whether the
terrors of the Impending catastrophe, or even
the cheerful prospect held out to the surviv
ors, will largely affect emigration to tbe an
tipodes this year. The expounder of this
theory I. however, so dreadfully in earnest
that be threatens to coma out with another
and bigger book next year supported by
more Scripture; from which wc infer that
tbe northern hemisphere Is in no immediate 1
danger. iV. Y. Timet.

High YVateh. From a Hawaiian corres
pondent, we learn that an extraordinary high
tide, or tidal wave, as be calls it, happened
at Kahanaloa, Puna, Hawaii, Oct. 1st, at nine
o'clock P. SL . The sea swept away the
church, tbe canoe houses, tbe fences, and in
vaded several dwellings, causing considera
ble loss. The tidal wave of April Sd, be says,
was small compared to the rise of the sea on
Tun Storm. The southerly wind and
rainy weattcr tbat we had in Honolulu, from
Sept. VJth to Oct 8th, prevailed throughout
the group. The rains have been copious and
abundant, and most favorable for plantation
crops. There was not any heavy and dam
aging wind except on Kauai, where, on Sat
urday the 3d Inst, it blew almost a hurricane,
chopping all rouud the compass. At Llhne
about 5,000 dollars damage was sustained in
tbe breaking down of the cane in the fields.
The water flume of Mr. G. Wilcox was
thrown down. At Koloa, the sea swept
away the wharf and caused other damage. The
fury of tbe gale seemed to culminate around
Walmea, where several houses were thrown
down, and the fine stone church building was
extensively damaged. Two-thirds of the
northern wall of the building fell, racking
and straining tbe roof frame and otherwise
damaging the whole structure. In Honolulu
on Thursday the 1st Jnst, the barometer
stood at 80.03, wind N. E. moderate. It fell
in the next twenty-four hours to 29.90, wind
still N. E. but squally; and on Saturday it
chopped suddenly to tbefi. E. with heavy
squalls and rain, and the barometer remained
at 29.00 until the following Monday. The
weather Is still unsettled although the rains
Smoec. Monday last the mountains and
atmosphere was loaded with smoke, and yes
terday the same appearance was still observ
able, though in less degree. When such
smoke makes its appearance, it is believed by
many to be a sure Indication of fresh out
breaks of the volcano on Hawaii. Tbat Is
land has been obscured by smoke since tbe
23d of September, and yet by the steamer and
schooners that have arrived from thence last
week, we have no accounts of new volcanic
activity. California was having a'smoky at
mosphere on . tbe 17th of September, which
they attributed to vast fires in the woods to
the northward of them, and we bear that
these fires extend up to the woods in Oregon?
The conflagration of the forests,- in many
parts of tbe world this year, is rather singu
lar. In Canada, the people of many places
have had hard work to prevent their towns
from being burned up. In Europe heavy
loss and damage has been sustained by the
forest fires. The present year may be noted
for Etnoke as well as other unusual physical
Tn.E TrtEATT. On Friday last, a number
of our planters dud others interested in su
gar growing, called on the Minister of Fi
nance, late Envoy to Washington, to talk
over matters connected withliis mission, and
the prospects of tbe Treaty. Mr. Harris gave
a sketch of the obstacles he encountered In
the prosecution of the object of his mission,
and arguments against the Treaty which ho
had endeavored to meet; also, the reasons
that made it probable tbat at its next session
the Senate might be disposed to regard the
ratification favorably. The necessity of com-1
blned and persevering advocacy of the meas
ure here, and a dissemination abroad of the
reasons for its passage, was a point assented
to by those present. It seems to be a settled
conviction in the community that the Gov
ernment ought to have au envoy or special
agent at Washington, until the Treaty Is
either rejected or ratified, and tbat the late
Envoy should be sent again. A memorial to
His Majesty, has been circulated, and has re
ceived tbe signatures of our most prominent

has made a very successful cruise, especially
as she lost about six weeks of tbe season
on account of going to Japan for medical as
sistance. Unfortunately tbe small-pox made
its appearance after the ship had left Hako
dadl, on tbe 1st of May, bound for the sea.
There were eight cases in all, four of which
proved fatal. May 27, died, Frank Thomas,
a Portuguese of tbe Western Islands. June
14, Joo Rorotonga, of Rorotonga. July 8,
Charles Miller, boatsteercr, of Rorotonga.
Aug. 6, Wm. n. Alien, boatsteercr, of Prov
idence, Rhode Island. The ship touched
again at Hakodadi June 13, to procure medi
cine and help for tho sick. Off our harbor,
being reported by tbe health-officer, she was
visited by Dr. McKibbln, the Port Physician.
The last case having occurred early in August,
aud the Captain having then thrown over
board all tbe clothing and bedding nsed by
the sick, and thoroughly fumigated the ship
and whitewashed the quarters, the vessel
was allowed to enter the harbor, and Officer
Dayton was charged witb the duty of using
farther disinfectants before allowing tbe crew
to land. Tbetp seems to be no reasonable
cause to fear that the contagion atlll exist on
Tkaoedt at Sea. By the H'm. Jiotch,
CapCE?F. Nye, from tbe 0chotsk8ea, we
have accounts of the mutiny at sea of China
men, off the coast of Peru, and tbe horrid
butchery of tbe officers and crew of the ship.
Tbe particulars, as far as Capt. Nye learned
them, are as follows :
About tbe beginning of February last, a
Peruvian bark left Callao for a port distant
only two days' sail, having on board filly
Chinese, (who had been engaged fora planta
tion in tbat neighborhood;) and rice and
other supplies for tbe plantation. Tbe owner
of the bark, with his Chinese servant, were
passengers, and there was also $20,000 in
specie on board. Tbe next day after leaving
Callao, the Chinese rose upon the crew, and
gained possession of the ship. They killed
the man at tbe wheel and the second mate
at once, and drove the crew below. The
captain and male attempted to escape by
jumping overboard from the cabin windows,
having first thrown over some chairs, or
other floating articles, but tbey were soon
dispatched in tbe water, tbe wretches lower
ing a boat for that purpose. Tbe owner, with
his revolver, making his stand in the cabin
to sell his life as dearly as possible, kept
them at bay, and finally was promised bis
life on condition of giving np his weapon.
The crew, nine in number, were brought
into tbe wslst of the ship and lashed to a
hawser, to which a kedgc anchor was bent,
and all were tumbled overboard, to perish
beneath the water, naving accomplished
tbeir crncl design, and freed themselves of
the officers and crew, tbey headed the ship
out upon the broad Pacific Ocean, with the
purpose of reaching China. With no knowl
edge of navigation, or the variation of the
compass, and only the idea that they must
stretch out westward to reach China, tbey
brongbt up, after 73 days, among tbe Kurilc
Islands, passed through into the Ochotsk
Sea, and got into tbe Ice. They lay in the
ice six days, and filled up their water-casks,
having suffered greatly on the passage across
from shortness of water. Tbey still kept to
tbe Eorthward,Vidently having no distinct
knowledge of where they were, and finally
came to anchor off the "Sand-spit," In North
east Gulf, on the 23d of April. Tbey here
put the owner and bi6 servant, who bad been
confined all the time to the cabin, ashore,
and aftcwards got under way and stood to
the westward. This is the last news we
have of tbe ship, but the opinion of the
whalemen is, tbat she could not get faraway,
as her sails were all blown to pieces, pro
visions short, and tbat they have not suffi
cient nautical knowledge to get ont of the
Sea. Probably tbey have. run herashore, and
dispersed themselves among the Indians of
tbe Kamtscbatka coast. For several weeks
the owner and his servant managed to escape
starvation, and the -rigor of the climate, by
the friendliness of tbe Indians, and by tbeir
means, finally, to get on board the Sea Breeze,
Capt. Hamilton, when she came into the
Gulf. The servant is on board tbu Jfercvlet,
Capt. Howland. Wc have tbe name neither
of the Peruvian ship, nor of the owner, who
has passed tbrongb ench terrible hardships,
but as be will soon arrive in tbe Sea Breeze,
tbe full particulars and circumstances of this
horrid affair can tben be obtained.
Shipwrecked Japanese. Some months
since, we noticed the return of some ship
wrecked Japanese by the Hawaiian bark
Eagle. These Japanese were discovered on
SL Peter's Island, n bich is' 000 miles south
of Yokohama, by Capt. Nyc of tbe WtUiant
Hatch, and by him taken away and finally put
on board the Eagle and Ohio. This Island Is
a barren place, without fresh water, but full
of albatross' and other sea birds. It is rather
a fatal island for Japanese navigators, several
of tbeir vessels having been lost there, and
weary Imprisonment of mouths and years en
dured by the survivors. Capt. Nyc had ono
on shore to procure bird's eggs, and was just
shoving off when he saw In Die distance
these Japanese coming down tbe beach.
They approached him with supplicating ges
tures and low obclsencc. and when assured
that they could goon board tbe ship they ex-1
blbitcd great joy and gratitude. They1 bad
been eighteen months on the island, subsist
ing on fish, birds and eggs. These and other
former shipwrecked men have constructed
five cave houses in tbe rock. In their house
tbe captain found hundreds of egg shells fill
ed with water, caught from the rains and
preserved in these frail containers. Captain
3!anjcrou, ofthe Japanese navy, whom some
of onr readers may remember by reason of
his visit to Honolulu, was a shipwrecked
tenant of this same island for many months.
The Japanese had been one mouth on board
the Boteh, when they were transferred to the
the ships bound in to Yokohama.
Fire. A lively alarm of fire, about two
o'clock Sunday morning, turned out all our
fire companies, and the town, generally. It
was a quiet, still night, lighted by the wan
ing moon, and although everybody was per
suaded there was a fire somewhere, its local
ity was not to be found. No glare upon tbe
sky indicated the spot, and even tbe most
sagacious fireman was at fault. It is now
thought that the alarm arose from some
night cooking by tbe natives, out towards
SuitEitE ComtT. The October Term of tho
Supreme Court opened on Monday, the 12tb

TheFbesch Steavsuip Compaxt. Tbe
history ofthe French General Traiisntlniilic
Steamship Company, n lilcb lias lu t-u ntab
lisbed less thau live yearn, promts many
interesting facts. 1 tils oompany on us three
lines of steamships, the first rniitilt-g fmm
Havre and Brest to New York f the second to
the West Indies. St. Thomas, Minima. Vera
Cruz, witb an anxilllary mail lurNcw Orleans
and tbe third to Gusdalomx.-. St. Tinnitus.
Guaymas, Venezuela. Colon and Panama
there to correspoud vitb the varioui- English
and AraericauMeaui?liis carrying sscugers
and goods on the Pacific Ocean. The first
and third of these Jines have been very
prosperous. They never flourished during
the occupation . of Mexico bv the French.
and have suffered a great deal from the sus
pension ol business caused ny tne evacuation
of Mexico. Tbe trade with SL Thomas and
New Orleans, which was carried on by that
line, has decreased on account ofthchcavv
storms and earthquake which devastated the
island, and of tbe yellow lever which prevail
ed in Louisiana last year.
At a meetlntr at the comnanv held In Mav.
the Company obtained permission from the
Government to establish a new line on tbe
Pacific Ocean, between Panama and Valrja-
ralso. The object of establishing tbe latter
line Is to nave tbe Dentin oi the trade be
tween France and the republics of Columbia.
Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Chile, which Is
estimated to equal twenty-six million dollars
The following figures show the steady
grow in oi travel oy tuc line running to
to this city. The average receipts oi the
Company for each trip In 1804 was $28,000;
in Ibtfi, Jl2,800: in I860, f,200, and In 1807,
$48,400. In 18G7the nnmberof passengers
was 7,308, against 7,033 the year previous.
The average speed ofthe French steamers
is over twelve knots an hour, and average
time of the trips Is nine days and twenty
hours, between New York and Brest. This
will be decreased as soon as the Lafayette,
now on the way to be transformed into a
sctcw steamer at St. Nazalre, shall shave
been snbstituted for the sidewheel steam
ship Europe. The Lafayette will be. ready
in a couple of months, when the Europe
will be sent to the West Indies.
Tbe steamers arc , to be provided with a
double screw, wbich has produced a remark
able result on the IVaiJtiiintoii, now running
between SL Navaire and Vera Cruz. In her
last trip she obtained a reduction of three
days and three nights over the average of
tne otuer steamers Deionging to tne line.
The Company owns twenty-one steam
vessels, a flshiug establishment at Newfound
land, several sailing vessels and schooners
attached to tbe fisheries, a rope factory at
Grant ille, and a machine foundry at llub
bervllllers. Tbe cost of the vessels amounts
to $13,120,730, which is reduced to $12,000,
000 by the sinking fund.
The postal service of the Company last
year produced $4,016,000 on which the pro
fit was over a million dollars.
Tbe Pacific steamers will run monthly be
tween Panama aud Valparaiso, landing at
the Intermediate ports ofthe equator, Peru,
Bolivia, and corresponding with the already
existing service of SL Nazalre and Colon,
Panama. In consequence of this arrange
ment, tbe. auxiliary service of SL Thomas
to Jamaica will branch on the line of Mex
ico, and will go as far as Panama. The
Pacific line is to be served by three new
steamers, of 3000 tons each, with a 4SO-horse
power engine, giving an average of ten
knots an hour.
The Company has obtained an annual sub
vention of three-quarters of a million of
dollars, and an interest of five per cent, up
on tbe capital of the Company, provided
their capital does not exceed twelve millions
for all the lines. Tbe Government, how
ever, will be Interested In a fourth of the
Company, whenever Its profits exceed eight
per ceuL The total of the expenditures of
tbe Pacific line is estimated at two millions,
on wbich tbe French Government Is to ad
vance eight hundred thousand dollars. y.
The Abyssinian Regalia. Tbe London
CTofe says: "The 6tate robe, crown, nnd
other articles, which belonged to Theodoras,
of Abyssinia, have arrived In England. There
are two crowns; one for state, and the other
for ordinary purposes. Tbe state crown is
of gold, rising to a height of about 18 Inches,
In three tiers; It Is Inlaid either with pre
cious stones or admirable imitations. The
work is very fine, and the weight such as
only the head of a powerful man could bear.
The common crown presents tbe appearance
of one ol those which are so often brongbt
Into requisition during the pantomime sea
son; tbe materials of dark silk velvet were,
no douht.'at one time, very fine, but use has
dimmed their brightness. The robes aro
gorgeous; the state robe being made of gold
tinsel, woriiea in noss, ana nnea wnu a ricn
brown satin. The pattern Is very chaste, and
tbe workmanship can scarcely be excelled In
any civilized couutry. It is a robe which the
ruler of tbe most powerful kingdom in tbe
world could wear. Tbe second robe is one
which Theodoras expressly ordered to be
made for Queen Victoria, but 'unavoidable
circumstances' intervening, the black mon
arch kept it himself for some time, and finally

The seal of tbe King is of an ordimlry char

Nose Bleed. There are two little arteries
which supply the whole face witb blood, one
on each side. These branch off from tbe
main arteries on each side of the windpipe,
and running upwards ton art! tbe eye, pass
over the outside ofthe jaw-bone, about two
thirds ol the way back from the chin to the
angle of the jaw, under the car. Each of
these arteries, of course, supplies one-half
the face, the nose being the dividing line.
The left nostril Is supplied with blood by the
left artery, and tbe right nostril by the rigbt
artery. Now, suppose your nose bleeds from
the right nostril: with tbe end of the finger
Icel along the outer edge of tbe right jaw
uutil .you feel tbe beating of the artery di
rectly under your finger, the same as the
pulse in your wrist; then press the finger
hard upon it, thus getting the little fellow In
a tight place between vour flneerand the
jaw-bone. The result will be that not a drop
oi.biood goes into mat side or your lace
while the pressure continues; hence the
nose Instantly stops bleeding for want of
blood to flow. Continue tbe pressure for fivo
or ten minutes, aud the raptured vessels In
the nose will by that time probably contract
so that when you let tbe blood into them
tbey will not leak. Bfeeding from a cut or
wound anywhere about tbe faco maybe stop
ped in tbe same way. Tbe Creator probably
placed these arteries aa tbey arc that they
might be controlled. Those at tbe back of
the bead, arms and legs are all arranged very
conveniently for being controlled In like

A solution oi borax is recommended as tbe

solution until the smarting and itcbing sub
