Road from Ililo to "IViiImen.
"Work upon the new Government road,
which is designed to connect Hilo and
"Waimeaon the islaud of Hawaii by passing
through the forest around the base of ilau
na Kca has been in progress since the
month of May.
intr a portion of
A contract for mak
road, was taken by
Messrs. May & Wilson, and with a
force of about sixty men, they are busily
engaged, upon the proposed line.
Starting from Hilo, they have opened
the road for a distance of seven miles, so
that now it is passable for one mile upon
the lava flow of 1855. Two miles of the
road are through the heavy forest that
covers, in the Hilo district, on the flank of
jIauna Kca. The trees have been cut down
80 as to make au opening of a hundred
feet through the wood, and an immense
mass of undergrowth, vines, ferns, and
shrubs, have been cleared away. .Most of
the water streams have also been diverted
so as to drain the soil, and to pour their
redundant water into the Wailuku. The
drawing away of the water, and the let
ting in of the sunlight and wind, will
operate to make pernienant and durable
the work expended upon the road bed it
self. From the forest, to the hill of Kalaiena,
is a distanco of eighteen miles, across a
country, rugged with the lava, . which at
successive periods, has rolled down the
slope of Mauua Loa, Across many of the
old streams, when the lava is disente
grated aufl broken up, the making of a
smooth track, will be :neither difficult or
expensive. The roads across the aa streams
in Kau, are among the best and smoothest
roads of the islands.
The flow of 1S55, the one that came so
near Hilo, and threatened that pretty
tropical town with destruction, is about 4
miles across on the line of the road. It is
a mass of tough vertitied rock, that under
the stone hammer breaks reluctantly and
makes fragments sharper andgrittier, than
the flow, as left by the subsidence of the
The surface of the flow, is also very
rough, broken up into ridges and depres
sions that require considerable work to
level sufficiently for road purposes. No
soil or sand is to be found in this flow, and
no vegetation, except ferns of a few inches
in height. One mile of road has been rough
ly made upon this flow by filling in with
small fragments of lava, to be finished up
with a covering of sand, or other materi
al that canmake it smooth. Enough has
been done however to Remonstrate that
the lava does not offer any serious obstruc
tion to pushing the road across the dis
tance that still intervenes between the
road as far as made, and Kalaieha, a hill
on the southern slope of Mauna Kea.
When Kalaieha shall be reached, this
route from Hilo to-Waimea "will practi
cally be open for travel, for a road or
track already exists,, easily traversed by
horses, and passable for carts between
Waimea and Kalaieha, a distance of thirty
miles. Mr. Hall has at the latter place a
sheep ranch, and there is plenty of grass
and water for auiraals. Thi distance
from the Court House in Hilo to tfhe Court
Bouse in Waimea, on the line .of the
proposed road is 53 miles. The advan
tage of the interior for a road above the
coast line, is the comparative smoothness
of the country passed over. The numer
ous gulches and heavy ravines which from
small beginnings, far up on the mountain
flank, develope themselves near the coast
into heavy and almost impassible cuts are
entirely avoided. So also the distance to
be traversed is greatly diminished, bear- J
ing about the same proportion that the
chord of a circle does to its corresponding
arc. The project of a road across Hawaii
has often been entertained, and one across
from Kona to Ililo was at one time under
taken, and made for some distance up the
slope of Ilnalalal We have no tloubt.
that when the present road should be push'
ed to completion, and especially if it can
be eventually made passable for wagons
and carts, shall it Trill greatly facilitate
in opening up the agricultural and grazing
resources of Hawaii
We are glad to be able to make the
very favorable report of the catch of the
Arctic Whaling fleet so far as heard from,
which will be found in another column of
this paper. The favorable returns which
have been realized for the past two years,
it is to be hoped will have the effect to
give new impetus to the trade, which has
for the past few years languished on ac
count of the average small catch of the
whalers Xorth, tosrether with the fact
that other oils have in a measure taken
the place of whale oils for many purposes,
particularly for light. The almost univer
sal use of petroleum for lighting purposes
has almost entirely driven whale oil from
the field of one ofits most important uses,
and had the effect, among other causes, to
tjreatlv reduce its value. Hitherto, for
many purposes, it has filled a place which
no other known oil could fill. For lubricat
ing machinery, sperm oil has been consicl
ered until recently the best substance to
obviate friction and prevent the heating
and rapid destruction of the machinery.
Now, however, it is asserted that the oil
from cotton seed has been found to be
equal to sperm in even respect for lubricat
ing purposes, and that it can take the
place of all whale oils. It can be' pro
duced in vast quantities in cotton produc
ing countries. In the enthusiasm on the
subject, created by the new discovery, it
is thought that at a low price, the oil pro
duced from the seed, on-a cotton planta
tion will 'pay for the cultivation of the
plant. This is probably an exaggerated
view of the. profits to be derived from the
production of cotton seed oil, but there is
no doubt its manufacture will become an
important branch of industry in cotton
growing couutrics, and that it will have
an important effect upon the whaling in
terests. Cotton seed oil for lubricating
purposes, is also like to meet in the early
days ofits use with a serious check by the
important discovery which has recently
been made in England of a material for
bearings which does not require any oil at
all. This material is called " Metaline "
or " Dry Bearings," and is spoken of in
the. Boston Commercial Jjtilhtin as fol
lows ; by which it will be seen that its
adaptability has been proved by the sever
" This article requires no lubricator. It neith
er wears nor cuts, but remains firm", while the
tendency to heat is slijhL If all is trne that H
claimed for this new material Metaline one of
the grandest discoveries of the day has been made,
and we call the attention of all who use. or are
interested in machinery, to this description of
MCTAUNE OR DINT HEARINGS.
Oar attention has been called to an article in
the London Engineer, or February 25, headed
"Dry Bearings," in which an account is given of
a visit to the r0om3 of the Foreign Mercantile
Company No. 1 nigh lTolborn, where a ten horse
power engine and frame of spindles wa3 to be
seen running without oil or lubricant of any kind.
The Engineer says : " We had the pleasure of
feeing one of the bearings running at lU.OOO revo
lutions per minute ; also a dozen cotton spindles
mnning at 3,000 revolntions.and a little steam en
gine driving them, making 100 revolutions per
minu'e, with all the bearings screwed down hard,
and not one drop of oil or lubricant of aoy.kind.
We saw and therefore we believe."
The Engineti goes on to say that Barger &
Burlock have introduced into England a new ma
terial for bearings and shaft steps, which, judsing
always from what wo have seen, appears likely
to prove the most important improvement that
has been introduced into machinery for many
years. Metaline is n new substance, made of old
and well known ones, and fashioned into bear
ings and footsteps, which require no lubricant;
at least so say the inventors, and 'hey prove what
they say by running an engine at 100 revolutions,
without oil, cotton spindles at 3,000, and an experi
mental spindle at 10,000 revolutions. In appear
ance Metaline somewhat resembles blacklead, but
it is not blacklead, nor docs it necessarily contain
blacklead. although plumbago may sumetimes be
employed in its formation. For small bearings,
cotton spindle steps, Arc, it is formed into little
tubes and enps. For large bearings it is made in
the form of little butloms. in. diameter, and
in. thick, forced into suitable ca tties, drilled
into the ordinary brass bearings. The theory in
volved is ;hts bearings wear because the surfaces
brought into contact are never truly saiooth;
they always resemble, more or less, two brushes
drawn over each other the prominences and cavi
ties interlocking. Oil or grease acts as lubricant,
because it keeps the surfaces apart aud prevents
interlocking. Metaline acts by filling up all the
cavities, however small, in the shaft or bearing,
producing a perfectly true surfaie, with which
there can be no interlocking, and consequently,
although friction remains, there can be no cutting,
while heating is reduced to a minimum, and de
prived of its evils.
At the machine shop of Todd & Rafferty. at
Paterson, X. J., is to be seen a huge vertical
Slotting Machine which is fitted with Metaline
This'Slotter has an IS in. stroke, with about 2SQ
squat e inches of friction surface on the tool bar.
Messrs. T. & R. say that the machine has been
in daily" use for over five months, and they did'
not discover the slightest tendency o wear or
cut during that time ; while on the other hand,
previous to its being fitted with this substance,
hey could not, with the most liberal supply of
tlm best lubricating oils, prevent its catting.
The surface resembles burnished steel. Messrs.
Todd &: Eaflerty speak in "Uie highest terms of
this wonderful discovery in fact say they cannot
say too much .in its praise. They are building
some very fine 25 horse power engines, to be filled
entirely with Metaline, one of which is nearly
completed, and will soon be rnnnin'r in New York
The above discovery will prove of the
utmost importance to our planters and
others, who use in their business, machinery
which requires rapid motion. In the bear
ings of centrifugals this material will be
invaluable, it being not.only mnch cheaper
than oil, but will require less dependence
upon the care of those who attend the ma
chines who arc frequently careless and
All these new inventions, however, wc
apprehend, will not render whaling un
profitable so. long as those who are en
gaged in it meet with success in the cap
ture of oil. Every new discovery in these
days seems to rather meet the require
ments and fill up the deficiences created
by the wonderful advancement in the arts
and industries of the age, than to dis
place any article of production. If a new
production takes the place of an old, the
old finds some new field of usefulness,
where it is found as valuable and necessary.
The Rev. Hiham Bixgiiam and Lady
returned on Thursday last in the schooner
Annie, from a visit of several months to
Micronesia, the scene of their former mis
sionary labors. During their stay among
those Islands, they visited the Islands of
Apaiang, Tarawa, and Butaritari, devot
ing the whole time of their visits on each
to the good work to which they have de
voted their lives. Churches have been
re-organized, schools established, books
distributed, and every thing doue to in
sure the advancement of the people
of those Islands. The labors of Mr.
and Mrs. Binrrham among the Micro-
nesians show great results for good,
aHd they may well look forward to the
not far distant time when those now semi-
barbarous people will be numbered among
the civilized people of the earth, and they
have cause to congratulate themselves that
they, with their co-laborers, have planted
the seeds of such civilization. We would
gladly publjsh Mr. Bingham's report of
his recent visit to Micronesia.
Among the passengers by the Annie
was the Rev. Mr. Mahoe, who, it will be
remembered, was shot by a native at Bu
taritari over a year aio. Mr. Mahoe is
till suffering from the effects of the
wound, although that of itself is healed
up. We regret to record the death oi the

The Coolie Insurrection In Pern,
Tbe IlmlcCt Lima letter, dated September 14tb,
gives the annexed details of the Coolie insurrection
in tbe valley of Supe, 150 miles from Lima. On the
plantation of Patloilea A. Gulpor, nearly 1,200 Chi
nese were employed, and on the neighbouring cststea
there n ere more than 4,000 of the Coolies. Several
months since symptoms of dissatisfaction were no
ticed among these laborers, but the overseers and
owners trusting to their authority and power paid
but little attention to tbeir manifestations. Unfor
tunately no precautions were taken against surprise;
and the,'hlnese, left In tranquility, were able to
mature tbeir plans. An agent of the estate had ar
rived from Lima with alan;e sum, destined for pay
ing the laborers and tho purchaso of cotton from the
While this person, with tho overseers, aphysiclan
and several other employes were at supper on the.
nlxht oftbe4tb, thedlning room doors were suddenly
broken open, and a crowd of nearly 00 coolies,
armed with stakes and every imaginable weapon,
burst in upon the whites. In less time than is re
quired to relate it, the Chinese had murdered all their
victims save one, who being grievously wounded
fell under the table and was thought dead. After
sacking tbe house and securingthe revolvers and ri"
Scs on hand, the Insurgents proceeded to tbe ad
Jolnins Aarienrla of Ualpela and repeated the sam"
barbarities. No, satisfied with killing. the whites
they encountered, the most revoltlngatroclties were
practised on their bodies, and delicate women and
children were sublectrd to sbamefnl and cruel tor
ture. The number ortbe Chinese now amounted to
1,100, and tbeir movements appear to have been di
rected with snmedegrco of Intelligence by onewhom
they seemed to hold as tbeir chief.
Having secured all the money and valuables to be
found on the estate, a large tame was anticipated In
tbe sacking of the little vlllace of Barranca. .Mean
time the owner of an estate which "lay on the road to
that village was notified by a frlvudly coolie of the
approach and design of the marauders, and hastily
placing his wife and family in the chapel belonging
to the plantation, he with another friend strongly
barred the doorand received the advancing column
wjth tbe tlre-of their rifles. The Chinese were vig
orous in tbeir attack, but unaccustomed to tbe use
of fire-arms, they fell easily before the defenders of
the church. In less than two hours these two brave
men had killed and wounded morethanslxty of their
assailants. So desperate, indeed, had become the
attempts ofthe latter, that a retreat was detcrrfllned
upon and accomplished.
Their design to sack the town having become
known, the Inhabitants bad time to make somo slight
preparations for defense. Works were erected at
ihe entrance of the village, and forty men well armed
nere posted behind It to resist the assaults. In a
short time the Chinese, reinforced to tbe number of
V,000 appeared In front and actually tent the leader
to parley with the defenders regarding surrender,
lie had hardly opened his month wben a well-directed
rifle ball put an end to his sentence. The Chinese,
goaded to madness, threw themselves upon the bar
ricade. Tbe fiL'lit for a few moments was hand to
hand; the whites suffered severely under the knives
and weapons of the assailants. Soon, however, the
power of gunpowder began to assert Itself, and the
coolies retreated and appeared to deliberate upon
their future movements. At this Juncture tbedefend
crs ortbe clmrcD, having placed their fjmily in a place
of safety, and found several companions, appeared In
the rear and commenced such a vigorous fire upon
tbem that in a shorttime oil order was forgotten and
the insurgents were in headlong fright.
A telegram had been sent to Lima and on the morn
ing of tbe Clh the Prefect with 200 soldiers arrived
at the scene. The Chinese bad dispersed to tbe
mountains and tbe soldiers after securing the few
who could be found, started in pursuit on a forced
march. The results of this terrible tragedy are forty
murdered among the whites and nearly three hun
dred Chinese killed. But the crops were destroyed
and the coolies 6ecking refuge In thu hills roaming In
bands and devastating the unprotected hamlets they
And on their way, are not only lost to their owners .
but still form a dangerous element to peace and se
curity. Great exeltemeul Is manilested at this un
happy event. Tbennmber of Chinese throughout
tbe Republic being so great as to cause general un
easiness and distrust. The white planters are per
plexed to And laborers for their estates which are
left uncultivated, and they In an Incredibly short
time are almost Irrevocably ruined.
A later letter, dated September 23d, says the Chi
nese insurrection Is beginning to lie produetle of
troublesome results. The troops have found It im
possible to dUeover the hiding placts of a large num
ber of the Cooles, they having taken refuge far In
the interior and in the fastnesses of tho neighboring
mountains. Cousiquently several of the must val
uable estates in that section ofthe Republic are par
aljzed and will doubtless continue in tha'. condition
for some time to come.
