A Chinaman, while going along Kiog Street on
Saturday, with a hand-cart In front of him, received
a sudden elevation,, which be failed to appreciate in
the same manner as did those who saw it. The

rolled to the opposite end, giving the Chinaman a

The Wistek months, so Tar, keep up the reputa
tion of the season for rain and storm. January
came in with us, in a shower which has been kept
up till the present time, with slight intermissions or
unusually chilly "north-wind" weather. The ther
mometer has stood as low as 04" during part of tbe
time, which Is unusual for Honolulu. Although
tbote living in colder climates would laugh at any
one complaining of cold in the above temperature,
yet it is true that not only many people do suffer
during our coldest days, and animals which arc ex
posed to the weather during the cold rains here,
seem to suffer quite as much as those which arc ex
posed to the violent changes of temperature and
storms In those countries where Ice and snow relgu
during tbe winter."
KiDNAi-riNO is the South Seas. Br the last
steamer from Australia, we received the particulars
of a kidnapping case which has created considerable
interest in the colonies. A few months since, a ves.
sel arrived at one of the Samoan Islands to obtain
watcrand supplies, having on board a uumber of na
tives'who had been kidnapped from the neighboring
islands. Tbe chief of tbe Island went off to the
vessel, and ascertaining the state of affaire, told the
captives the greater part of whom were on deck
to jump overboard and swim on shore. Nearly tbe
whole of them succeeded In doing so, and arrived at
the village, where they were kindly received by tbe
Islanders. The captain of the vessel went on shore
to obtain satisfaction from the chief, but was made
a prisoner, and handed over to the British Consul,"
who, afterluvestigating the case, sent him to Sydney
to be dealt with by the authorities there.
Rotal nAWAHAS Tueatbe. Entertainments arc
given at the Theatre on Monday, Wednesday and
'Saturday evenings of each week, under the proprie
torship of Mr. C. Derby, and management of Mr.
Frank Jones. We regret to say that during the past
week tbe efforts of these gentlemen, to cater for
tbe public amusement, have not met with the sup
port which the character of their entertainments
deserve. The delineations of Mr. Jones, and the
songs and dancing ol Miss Maggie Knight, ought
to insure full houses every time they appear before
the public. Miss Maggie Knight takes a benefit on
Monday evening next, when an unusually attractive
entertainment will be given. In addition to the
usual company, Mrs. J. W. Kulght will also appear.
We hope-thc public will show their appreciation of
the wonderful taleutsof the little beneficiary by giv
ing her a crowded house.
The Kuokoa. The New Tear's number of this
well-established Hawaiian paper now in its tenth
volume which appeared last week, took everybody
by surprise. Besides a new and tasty beading en
graved expressly for It, and printed in red, It has the
Hawaiian flag also printed in brilliant red and'blue,
indicollng to strangers, better than any description
could, what the Hawaiian ensign Is. Accompany
ing the Hag, is Prince William C. Lunalilo'6 hymn
" God Save the King," and a translation or the same
in English, made' by Rev. L. Ljons, ot Hawaii.
Good Judges or Hawaiian say that his composition
is one or the most expressh'e in the native language.
With such papers as the Kuokoa and Au Oioa, both
beautifully printed on clear type and white paper,
and supplied for two dollars a year, Hunaiians
ought not. to complain of a lack of reading matter
and war news. Mr. II. M. Whitney Is the publisher
of the Kuokoa.
We beg to call attentiou to the advertisement of
the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York,
to be found lu the advertising columns of to-day's
issue. This Company is thUjlargest, most reliable,

no stockholders, and its immense capital of over
$41,000,000 belongs exclusively to the policy holders,
and the whole of Its profits arc annually .equitably
divided umong the assured. The principles upou
which Life Iusurance Is based, and which this pow
erful organization the Mutual Lift has corried to.
such perrection, are not only beantlfuVin theory but
have, in their operation, fulfilled and even surpassed
the predictions and hopes of their most eanguiucad
vocate6. If this Company were a recent experiment
we should speak less confidently of its merits; but
the steady course It has pursued for more than a
quarter ora century, and tbe irrefragable evidence It
has constantly afforded of healthy prosperity, have
earned for it a reputation forstability which justifies
us In placing it before our friends and tbe public as
an assured success, the greatest ever achieved in
Life Assurance. Mr. E. P. Adams, the local agent
at this place, or Mr. J. R. Helen, who is now here as
special agent of the Company, will lully explain the

It would seem fromtbe following from the t
or the 15th ult., that some or the people or that
steady old Quaker City, Philadelphia, had become
greatly excited over the irrepressible Chinaman. It
is probable that not more than a score of Chinamen
have ever seen that city, and the time Is far distant
when they will interfere with the labor of tbe peo
ple. Tbe wisdom, therefore, of the Antl-Coolle
League, in taking up tbe subject in time is very evi
dent: "The various expedients for stopping the influx
of Chinese to this country, afford much amusement
to the inventors, probably, and certainly most of
them are amusing to the general public. Away off
in Philadelphia, where tlicy have not so much as
felt the first wave of this "great flood-tide of Chi
nese immigration," there Ismail organization of ab
surd persons known as tbe Workingmen'a Anti
Coolie League. This precious league has lately pre
pared a bill for the consideration of Congress, by
which Chinese immigration is to be forever put to
an end. By tbe terms or the bill It is proposed to
treat tbe "coolie trade as piracy, officers of the
vessels as pirates, and to fine agents engaged in the
Introduction of Chinese labor in enornrous amounts.
As -the bill contemplates classing as Coolies all
" who do not come to tbis land' to make a perma
nent residence here," it will be seen that the com
merce of the Pacific Ocean stands a chance of being
blown ont of water. It is a lucky thing for the
country that these remarkable men who run the
Anti-Coolie and similar organizations do not have
exclusive i-ontrol or aablic affairs. They wonld

Fell Overboard. On Saturday evening, the 31st
nit., a native woman who had taken passage on tbe
Kate Lee for Hilo, while carelessly sitting on the
rail or the vessel, losther balance and fell overboard.,'
Tbe vessel was put about Immediately, and search
made for tbe missing paisenger, but owing to the
darkness, those on board were unable to see her
or bear her cries, although she saw tbe vessel and
made every effort to make herself beard. The ves
sel again resuming ber course after tbe inefiectnal
search, tbe woman saw that the only apparent
chance to save herself, was to swim to Diamond
Head, uhich was in tight, although a long distance
off. After swimming in that direction between two
and three hours, being at the time nearly exhausted,
she saw another schooner coming up, and was for
tunately able to make those on board hear her cries
for assistance. A boat was at once Ion ered from
the schooner, which proved to be" Mary, and the
woman rescued. She was landed at Lahaina and
returned to Honolulu In tbe Nettle Merrill.
Otsters. We clip the following from the Sau
Francisco Bulletin of tbe 15th jilt., referring to an
experiment made somewhere near San Francisco,
with seedlings from New Torkwhich has proved,
according to the report, entirely successful:
"Since the publication ora paragraph referring to
an experiment at 0 ster growing in San Francisco
Bay, we have been shown some of tbe oysters and
have been satisfied on undoubted evidence that the
New York seedlings planted here a year ago, have
made the grontb which would require two or three
years lu their native waters. Tbe flavor or these
transplanted oysters is round to heasdelicateasthat
or Ihe best Eastern growth. This experiment was
made by persons vtbo have had a long practical fa
miliarity with tbcoyster business, and who, having
demonstrated that large and fihe oysters can be
grown here, have formed a company with a capital
ol $:.0,000, and Intend to begin operations forthnith
on a large scale. The locution of their bed Is of
course their on n secret. Several capitalists will
take stock with them, to help found a new and -valuable
industry, which will supply our markets with
a delicious'and wholesome edible. We are informed
that $1,000 a day are spent In this city for the small
inferior native ojstcrs, besides large amounts for
imported canned oysters. Beds of Improved oysters
in our n waters would make still Ijrger sales and
employ a larger amount of capital tnd labor. The
PaeiHc Oister Company, which has just filed Its or
tides of incorporation, will be the pioneers in tbis
Oysters require a muddy rather than a sandy or
rocky bottom to flourish iu, and wherever a shallow
bay can be found that possesses that requisite, tbey
can be cultivated to any extent. Vi'x believe that
with the proper seedlings any quantity or as fine
oysters maybe produced in the lagoon at Pearl River
as can be produced In any locality, the cultivation of
which could also be made profitable. There are al
ready, in certain parts of thVlaiiooc, found a species
of native oyster which possesses much ol the deli
cate flavor of the delicious bivalve to be found in
such abundance on the Atlantic coast. It only re
quires a little enterprise, and no great expense to
those Owning the land along the shores of the lagoon
to try tbe experiment with a good prospect or rich
returns. We hope, now that It Is practicable with
the quick steam communication letwecn here and
Sau Francisco to get the seed here hi good condition,
that some one of them will try the experiment.

Mr. Editor: When the natural passions excited
by the frlghtrul war, now raging on the Continent of
Europe, have subsided, after the restoration pf Peace
when the destructive and deadly antagonism' of the
combatants has given place too generous emulation
for the welfare of mankind and the furtherance of
tbe progress or the human mind, It "ill be an inter
esting study to gather and scan the documents rela
tive to the eventful phases of the Franco-German
Napoleon III has just published the military part
ora work, that he Is preparing in his magnificent
prison of Wiiliclmshohe, under tbe title of The causes
that have brought about the capitulation of Sedan
(By an officer attached to the Head Staff.) The po
litical part will soon appear under the head of: Re
lations of France and Germany irv the reign of Na
poleon HI (By a Senator of the Empire.)
The main arguments of the imperial thesis may
prove, even now, a matter of Interest ; I am there
fore going to expound them, showing, as Impartially
as I can, both sides of tbe question, so that every
one can make such comments as may best suit his
personal opinion or favorite tendencies.
And firstly, Napoleon admits that when he com
menced hostilities, he knew full well that he
ludlut 300,000 men rcady.for active service. His
hope was to compensate the numeric inferiority of
his army by a great rapidity of muvemenl, which
would have enabled him to invade the South of
Germany and cut it off'from the North. Tbe dis
proportion of lorccs would then have been materi
ally diminished. This he could not accomplish,
since, as events have proved, his plan of invasion
wo6 anticipated by the Prutsiuns. He railed on ac
count or delays which he Imputes to tbe "defects or
the French military organization, which have been
Iu existence for the last fifty years."
This statement might naturally be objected to
by a Republican Frenchman, (whom I will here
Introduce for the sake ot argument,) that an all
powerful military government, such as the Empire
has been for eighteen years', has no excuse for not
having discovered and done an ay with those vices
of "routine," after the experience of two previous
wars, in which they showed themselves but too ap
parently. The author of this pamphlet meets this argument
by accusing tbe Legislative Assembly of having "re
fused their necessary co-operation to the mot urg
ent reforms. Who does not remember the difficul
ties and protests which arose from the introduction
of the bill for military "reorganization? The mem
bers of the opposition were upholding the most
absurd theories about leva n.rnoe,-altogclher Im
practicable and a hostile feeling prevailed every
My French Republican has a ready answer for
"thhVand as be is perhaps fond jif signing, he says
that the above was true during the last two years
when the gauche numbered about forty adherents,
but that In tbe previous sixteen years, the Assembly
showed themselves anxious and ready to follow and
support the suggestions and. measures proposed
by the government, and that 11 the military system

then states that after the unpropltlous beginning of

responsible he gave up tbe command or the army

He wanted to go to Paris,with Marshal McMahon
at tbe head of tbe troops which were then assembled
at Chalons, but this decision met with strung oppo

Regent, wboTsent orders to Marshal McMahon to
proceed to Metz In spite or all tbe dangers that be
for saw in that flank movement.. It is therefore on
the Government or Paris that tbe Emperor lays tbe
responsibility or tbe distster of Sedan a disaster
which was forseen by McMahon, on account of the
lack of cohesion of bis new army, which be meant
to drill and exercise under tbe walls of Paris. The
Imperial writer vindicates tbe capitulation of Sedan
by the utter Impossibility in which hefound him

Tour's trulj, -
Gcrraan Answcrto French Circular.
"We copy the following from the Wiser Zeilung
of October 21st :
" By simply denying all complicity with the
originator of this war, and" by thrusting on him
the onus of all misfortunes and disgraces which
now crush France, once so grand, the French try
to tote their presentEitnation as easy as possible
so as to lighten their consciences at, least of the
self-accusation which tbe dreadful catastrophe
now pending over them roust awaken. Thus they
come to the extraordinary assertion that the Ger
mans, but more especially the Prussians, commit
an act of unheard of barbarity in continuing the
war after they had taken the Emperor Jiapoleon
a prisoner, and after a certain number of Parisian
men of the pavement have deposed the Bona
parte dynasty and proclaimed the Republic. This
manner of freeing themselves frotn the responsi
bilty of the daring breach of peace against Ger
many,and besides, thecjaim of a peace settlement
with the least possible burden as advanced by M.
Jules Favre, seems to be most palatable to the
French. Even to this day, after the lapse of an
othcrjnonth of severe trials which have passed
ovsr France, the doctrine of Sir. Favre is still
clung to, and his proxy outsido of Paris ha3 en
deavored to treat the same subject, with new
variations, in a long document which rather
bears the character of a bold pamphlet than that
of a State document.
Tbe delegate in Tours, Mr. ChauUordy, has not
shown much ability in bis work, for notwith
standing the numerous protestations at French
Iovo of peace, coupled with considerable rudeness
towards Count Bismarck, the author is lead to
prove, nnintentjonallythattn?Tar was actually
a necessity against the ambition of Prussia ; that
in fact Prussiaprepared and made the war inev
itable. The Emperor Napoleon may thank Mr.
Chaudordy, and at the samu time console himself
during his captivity at Wilhelinshohe, with the
thought that, if tbe war of 1870 had taken a
happy turn for the French arms the breach of
peace would have been condoned ; and Mr. Chan
dordy, who even-dares to smooth over the Mexi
can adventure, would have assuredly found a
friendly excuse for a victorious campaign against
It is a miserable attempt, a sneer at the im
portance of universal suffrage, when tho present
republican leaders with as few single citations
from the reports ofthe Prefects, try tojshow the
peaceful intentions of France, whilst they pass
over in silence the vote of the legal representa
tives of the nation, and totally ignore that an im
mense mojority of Frenchmen a few months be
fore the beginning of the war,-onco more sane
tioncd the man who continually has entangled,
tho country in foreign wars. If the nation, by
ignoring its own direct and indirect votes, ap
proves of this attempt, it acknowledges its own in
The.breaking out of the war of 1870 surprised
France a3 well as Germany, and it ia possible,
that the French people may not have been in the
mood to undertake "willingly the exertions and
burdens of tho war, but the desire for a war
against Germany, the craving for the German
Rhenish Provinces, has been fostered by the en
tiro French nation through generations with crim
iiml arrogance, and the Emperor only took advan
tage -of their evil passions, when ho undertook
this.'for bim, fatal enterprise. Nowhere is French
Sentiment more clearly set forth, than in the pro
clamations of tho Itepublican Government.
France, imperial no more than royal or repnb.
lican, has ever been willing to concede to as, the
right of an independent, vital national develnpe-
meiit. The events of 1866 have been looked up
on with envy by all French politicans, tho ftcon
slruction of Germany has been in the eyes of
Frenclimen only, an increase of power and author
ity of Prussia, an attempt against the influence of
The moral complicity of France in this war can
no more be denied than her formal participation
in it, she is as much responsible'for it as ever a
country was responsible for the misdeeds of its
