Mb. Korroit: I uotiea with raach pleasure,
jour remarks opoo Mr. Brigham's capers, publiih
ci3 in the Memoirs of the Boston bociety of lat
eral JIUtorT. so fir they reler to his exrlana
tions or 1 lawaiixn name. Aa joa hare correctly
pointeJ oat where Mr. Brighara has erred in his
etTmoIogr of Hawaiian names, permit me to
indicate one or two places where I think that
jour own rendering of the meaning of a name
mar be somewhat impfored, and then enlarge the
subject a tittle by allodingla the nomenclature of
a few of the Polynesian Islands, and the inference
as to origin, which that saggests.
You render the word Suu-anu. 'the cold cleft
or mountain pass." Bat the word is composes!
of -Vkk. "an eleted place," from the verb .Auu,
-to swell np. to be fall or high ; and aau, -cold,
chilly;' thus literally, "the cold highland." In
the Samoan, we find the word -Ytru. which means
"a Tillage or secernent." and such was probably
the original meaning applied to this celebrated
raller oa Oaha. In further confirmation of this.
etymology. I woald refer to "the platform or rais
ed place in the Htiau where the idol or idols
stood, and where the offerings were laid." which
was called .Yam. and was synonymous with Kitpa
rnt. 1 therefore fail to see. and beg to be in
formed, how the word JVub- can ba made to sig
nify "a cleft or pass." Yoar definition of the
name Ifonoinlu is probably correct, if the word is
read a3 joa write it, and if it had always been so.
Bat it has possibly escaped your inrestigations.
that in old Jkks and Kaaos, (songs and legends)
as late even as the time of Knalii.of Oihn, this
place was called Hono-nimu. and that the pres
ent pronunciation, "Honolulu." is "a comparatively
modern exchange of for A which so many words
in the Ilsrraiian dialect have undergone, eupho
nire grtttia. And thas yoa will perceire that
the original Hmonimu suggests a different ety
mology from the present Hono-hdu.
I thank yoa for the information that Waimea
is the same a3 Wai-mehameha, or " lonely, far
off, sacred waters." and that the word is foand in
Xew Zealand geography. Permit me to add
that the word JlthameJvt, in the sense of " sa
cred," has become obsolete in the Hawaiian lan
guage, bat still retains that sense in the old
legends where reference is made to 3Tuu-mita-lan
or, as seme write it, Suu mea-lani, " the
sacred, heavenly, dwelling place, or habitation ;"
and here yoa wjll also perceire that the word
Nuu occurs in iU anzient Sanioan sense. In the
Marquesan dialect, the won! Mit occurs as an
epithet of gods, as Tu rn .the first-born of
- Atea." I am unable, therefore, to decide
whether "Ilea" or "MehA" be the ancient,
Yoa are very correct in saying that " the mean
ings of the names of the principal Islands are
probably buried in obscarity." Bat if their
meanings are obsrare, tbu descent of many may
be plainly traced to the Aliiatic Archipelago, and
beyond. Thos we find" the protonom of the
Island of Oaha in 1. Ouahou, a tract of country
in central and South east Borneo, occupied by
Dyat tnbes ; anil 2d, in Ouadjou, a State, or
formerly iodpende'ht territory, id central Celebes,
occupied by a Bagii population.
Moluhji. or. as it is called in the ancient songs
and sagas, Moittai-ti-liaa, refers itself to JUaro
Aiy, Morotif. Marty, (according to Spanish, Dutch
and English orthographies,) one of the Moluccas,
Xortb-east of Gilolo. The Moluccas were called
liy Ptnlomy, and-other ancient geographers, thn
- Sardas." and This name is referred to by Span
ish navigators of the 16th century as a collective
name for the whole group, before the name of the
" Moluccas" obtained. Oar JTohlai-a-lIina,
therefore, or 2Ib!ohxi-a-Suia. as it would be pro
nounced in the Samoan dialect, points very
plainly to the derivation of its name, as well 33
to the people who named it.
natrtii.&nraii. Bccicnihi, AicaVci xoi ilatai,
as diSerestly pronounced, is the special name of
tie principal island in these separate groups. It
is a compound of lima or SUtra, and it or Hi,
the former of which is the proper name, and the
latter the descriptive adjunct or epithet. This
name, both in its single and compound form, re
fers itsIf to Sneni, on. the North coast of Ce
ram ; to Satcaii. in the South-west of Borneo ;
to Aanua, oa the South cpast of Oram; to
DJmea, a river on the East coast of Borneo ; to
Djaaa or Java, the second of the Sunda Islands,
known to Jlarco Fob in the Uth century, under
the name of Ciatca; known to the Arab traders
f the 9th century, as the Empire of Ztpaya,'oT
Zapagz, asd, jointly with Sumatra, known to
I'totoray. ic the 2d century, as 'Jcsbaiu, or
Jaba-diot insula." Notwithstanding the na
tional vanity of the Hinda-Malayan historians,
who claim that the island received its present
name from Hindu con(aerors in the first century
after Christ, these various readings of the same
one came, ffawa, Djawa, Jawa, Ciawa; Jaba,
and Zabx, -point as stili farther trest, to that
Cashite-Arabian Zoia or Silo, whose commerce
and colonies bad visited and fettled, and moulded
to iu own dvillralion and culture, both the coasts
of India and the Indian Archipelago, long before
the Vedic Arians had crossed the SaraswatL
Lthita, of the Hawaiian group, and Isfuka. of

Sew South Wales.
This Colony Is, perhaps, the most self-defend-ent
ol any in Australia, by reasca of its vast
area and comparatively small population. It Is
the pioneer ol the Australian . Colonies, and.it
was there that gold was first discovered in 1851.
What a mighty changu since then i Then, the
whole country was one vast sheep-ran, and Syd
ney an insignificant sea-port town ; note, a
thriving, prosperous Colony, with Its important
inland towns, (mining and agricultural.) its rail
ways and its commerce, and Sydney transformed
into an Important and flourishing city, with a
population of 120.0UO I In all it produces, tho
supply is more than equal to the demand, and,
moreover, alt colonial productions are placed ia
the market at-och rates as to defy foreign .com
petition. Sydney the Naples of the South is worthy
oj a visit, if on no other account than to see itr
barbor, .ne beauties 01 which defy description,
and must be seen to be appreciated. It is n well
laid-oal city, and has a number of handsome pub
lic baitdings, and tho country surrounding it is.
perhaps, the most picturesque in the Australian
Colonies. The lorm of government is similar to
that of New Zealand, except in tho matter of

New South Wales is essentially a 'squatting"
colony, that is. it is devoted to pasloial pursuits,
the Ierm "squatter" being applied td any gentle
man who is the owner or lessee of a large tract
or land on which he raises cattle and sheep. On
every station there is a "boiling down" establish
ment, where sheep, after being di veiled of their
skins, are thrown into boilers and their fat ex
tracted, the refuse serving as food for the "din
goes" native dogs. The fat and wool from this
source are in due time forwarded to Syduey,
where they are either utilized or shipped in their
raw state to other countries. " Squatterdom" is
the ruling power of the Colony ; it is a highly
profitable pursuit, aud the majority ol those en
gaged in it arts men of great wealth. But if its
advantages are great, many of its disadvantages
are equally so. For.instance, the country is bat
poorly watered, and many of these stock-owners
are dependent on rain-falls for the sustenance of
their Socks. It not nnfreqoenlly occurs that a
drought of six or eight months duration, sets in-
all the creeks, and in Kome instances the rivers,
are dried up and slteep and cattle die by
thousands. Then, again, they very often suffer
from the opposite extreme: floods of a serious
nature inundate large tracts of country, sweeping
away everything in their course, and bringing
ruin and devastation upon many prosperous sta
tions. In addition to wool, tallow and hides, which
are the staple productions ol the colony, New
South Wales also produces diamonds, gold, kero
sene, and coal. The latter is foand in great
abundance at Newcastle, about seven hours'
steaming from Sydney, and the quaiity of the
coal is the best in the Colonies. It is the great
coaling depot of Australia. The principal gold
producing dutrict3 are, Ophir. Sofala, the Lacb
lan. Mudgee, Yoaog, and Braidwood. A mint
for the coinage of money has been established in
Sydney, and the greater portion or the gold coin
in circulation in the Colonies is issued from that
mint. Diamonds, of considerable value, have
been found at Tuena Creek, in the Mudgee Dis
trict, but mining for these precioa stones is still
in its infancy. Kerosene oil, of good quality,
has, within the last few years, been foand, to
exist in paying quantity, and already the psodace
of the Hartley oil wells forms no inconsiderable
portion of the amonnl consumed in the Colony.
In addition to all this, New Sonth Wales is a
manafifctunng Colony. Amongst its other in
dustries may be quoted, as the -most flourishing,
the manefactcre of tweeds, which, for durability
and quality, cannot be excelled. Its wines too,
are of a fine flavor and boqaet ; and tobacco, in
some parts of the Colony, flourishes luxuriantly.
The cultivation of sugar ba3 also been essayed
by some enterprising spirits, but, financially; has
proved a failure.
With all these elements of prosperity at her
command, there can not be the slightest douft in
any thinking mind, that New Sooth Wales will
eventually become a great and prosperotu coun
try, foe following are the leaning nespapers

published in Sydney.
Previous to the gold era, Victoria formed a
portion of the New South Wales Colony, and
was known as the " Port Philip District." It
was then, as New South Wales is now. a great
squatting country ; but the gold discoveries, to a
certain extent, changed all this. As the dis
coveries of fresh fields followed each other in
quick successions the diggers gradually encroached
upon the Iquatters' lands, notwithstanding the
strenuous efforts, of the latter to prevent them ;
so the squatters, to compensate themselves for
their losses, and to have revenge on the diggers,
resorted to the only means left them, and that
was, to charge a high price for their mutton.
Since then, their interests have been on the
wane, as from time to time large blocks of land,
prenoosly in tbefr possession, have been thrown
open to agriculturists and others ; but notwith
standing, those interests are still large. Imme
diately after the gold discoveries, "Port Phillip,
impressed with its growing importance, caused
by the great influx of popaku'oo. began to clamor
for a, separation from New South "Wales, and
eventually attained the deered oijett, their gov
ernment being established ea the taste xtw as

Ballarat, tho " City of the Mines." It has a pop.
oration of from 60.000 to 70,000, tho majority of
whom are dependent, more or less, upon its min
ing resources. On this field, at the present time,
all mining operations are carried on by public
companies, this being rendered necessary by the
great depth to which shafts are suak and tha
expense attendant thereon. These companies
go to vv oik on a grand scale, and a short descrip
tion of the mtxlus optrantU may cot prove unin
teresting. A number of speculators apply to
Government for a lease of certain lanthTon which
to carry on mining operations ; having obtained
it, they then proceed to issue a prospectus and
form a company. This done, they commence
erecting machinery and sinking a ' main shaft''
throush basaltic rock, until they arrive at the
desired pipe-ctay " bottom," on which the gold
rests. This generally lies at a depth of two or
three hundred feet from the surface, ,and conse
quently, owing to the difficult nature of the
sinking, it is often a work of one or two years
before it is reached. 'I hey may happen, luckily,
to strike a golden "lead" on bottoming; if eo,
they have nuthing to do bat follow it leads
being generally pretty well defined. If, however,
as is more often the case, they do not strike the
lead, they have to "drive," (tunnel.) underground
in all directions to find it, being guided in their
search by small leaders, which feed the main one.
Oo finding it. should it prove remunerative, tram
ways are laid down in the drives leading to the
main shaft, along which the wasb-dirt is conveyed
and brought to tho surface, where it is put
through the machine, and the gold extracted.
Many thousands or pounds are expended before
gold can be expected to be found, and In many
instances it i3 not found at all at least, in paya
ble quantities. This, in addition to the risk of
being flooded out, might be thought sufficient to
deter partie3 Troni speculating ; but, seeing that
the failure of one company is generally counter
balanced by the success of another, the spirit of
speculation is, and always will remain rife at
Ballarat The richest claim on the field and
perhaps the richest ever opened is tho " Band
of Hope," which Tor the last ten years has been
paying enormoas dividends to its lucky share
holders. Castlemaine, known in the early days of the
gold-fields as Forest Creek, is the central gold
mining town, and was, when first opened, the
richest field in the Colony. Here, many lucky
diggers earned a competency one week and spent
it the next ; the sinking wa3 shallow, averaging
about thirteen feet, and seldom exceeding forty
feet nence it is- that the mining interest there
is now on the wane the old alluvial workings
being left to the Chinese and a few straggling
Europeans. Bat the quartz reefs in the locality
still continue remunerative, and it will be-many
years before they are exhausted. Caitlemaine,
hdwever, is not depeudent on its mines to any
great extent ; it has something more stable to
depend upon its agriculturists and wine-growers.
It is celebrated for the abundance of its crops,
the quality of its ales, and its choice b'ght wines..
It has its foundries, tanneries, breweries, floor
mills, etc, and, altogether, may be pronounced
one of the most prosperous Inland towns of Vic
toria. I he Castlemaine district has a population
of between 7,000 and 8.000.
Sandhurst the Bendtgo of the early days la
about twenty-five miles from Castlemaine, and
nearly all that has been said about the latter is
applicable to the former. Gold;mining, however,
is carried on with more energy in Sandhurst, and
next to Ballarat, yields more co!J than any other
field. The population or the place is about
In addition to those already mentioned, there
are the following important gold-mining towns in
Victoria: Amherst, Aroca, Ararat, Archdale,
Benalla. Beechwortb. Chewton, CreswichvClunes,
Dayjesford, Dunolly, Fryertown, Guildford, In-
gtewocd. Kingower, Maryborough , Maldon, Ma
jorca, Ovens, Rochdale, Smytbes, and Tarnagul
la. Some idea of the present yield of these
fields may be gleaned from the fact that for the
first six months of 1870, the returns received in
Melbourne and all the gold doea not find its
way there more than equalled in value the total
retains of the Thames, in Auckland, which had
been in operation for more than two years, and
the richness of which field had been to extolled.
So great was the impetus eiven to agriculture
and horticulture by protection and the liberal
land policy of late yeara adopted by Victoria,
that the colony is now self-supporting in matters
of breadslnfls. fruits, wines, etc. By the Land
Act, persons of small capital were enabled to
take up tracts of land for agricultural purposes,
for which they paid an annual rental, and at the
end of a given time, this rental was accepted by
Government aa a payment in fall for the land.
Under tb: arrangement, tha landholder bad to
make a certain amount of improvements yearly,
or in default, forfeit all claim to his land ; and so
well has this system worked, that the colony now
abounds with happy and aoirrishlsf boaeada.
