loel forward to extrmragant or even lilgh prices, bat
we may expect fair prices throughout tho year, and

The season is, so faxy-very backward and unfavora
ble far getting the sugar crop forward, which will be
the means of putting off our sugar exports, to a con
siderable extent, to the latter half of the year. The
lng-on tinned and heavy rains hare put back cane,
and fields that were expected to be fully matured in
December, are scarcely fit to cot at this time. What
effeet9tols will hare on the next crop, time only can
tell ; much will depend on the weather for the next
few months.
The sugar now coming forward is superior to that
of former years, and the plantations, generally, are
well provided with good machinery, so that we hare
right to expect a much larger yield of the better
grades, and lesa or the medium and dark.

bcea the worst passage he has erer experienced.
JUrcat or Biax Court. The bark Comet, Captain Andrew
Fuller, of the Regular Dispatch Line, left this port for San
Francisco on the 31st (4 December. First 56 hours out, after
getting clear of the land, had light baffling airs, and made 1
but little progress on her course. Finally took a favorable

officers were elected :

Tbe company numbers 83 active members, and is in

Br the bk Tiolette arrived here on Friday, 3d Inst.,
came 109 Chinese Immigrants, seTcnty of them, who
are agricultural laborers from tbe Interior provinces
of China, left on Monday by the Steamer for Kaupa
kuca, where they will be employed on tbe plantation
of Messrs. Afong fc Acbuck. The remainder who
have been accustomed to Tarions occupations, and
who engaged their own passages here, will we un
derstand remain in Honolulu.
A Nabbow Escape. On Friday last, an accident
occurred on Nuuann 6trcet, from which no eerions
cffecls resulted, however. A gentleman was driving
along in his buggy, when a Chinaman attempted to
cross the street In front of the horse, bnt on coming
in a line with the animal, stumbled and fell. Al
though going at a rapid pace, the gentleman suc
ceeded in pulling up tbo horse before the wheels ol
the. baggy passed ovcrjhe Celestial, the horse, bow.
ever, having got one of his fore-feet on the man's
prostrate bod
A IIoaz. The Comet, which had been anxiously
looked for, arrived on Monday morning. A wag ot
our acquaintance perpetrated a Very successful hoax
in reference to this vessel on Friday evening last
It was reported that. tho Comet was ootsidc, and that
the Tele had gone out for her. The result was that
a number of persons assembled on the wharf to
await her arrival, anxious for late news ol tbe war.
After waiting a considerable time, it was ascertained
that it was a vessel from China, and many were the
imprecations heaped on our waggish friend.
New Fostaoe Stamps Specimens of the new
Hawaiian postage stamps were received by the Post
master General on Monday by the Comet. Tbo de
signs arc very handsome and appropiate, and cor
respond with the two and live cent stamps now in
use. Tbu stamps received are of the denominations
of one, sir and eighteen cents. The one cent is vio
let colored, with a vignette of the late Princess Vic
toria Kamamalu ; the six cent stamp is green, with
the likeness of His Majesty, and the eighteen cent
is pink, wltb ihe likeness of His late Highness M.
Kekuanaoa, all of which are most perfect likenesses.
Fieemen's Presentation. Ou Friday last, the
members of Hawaii Engine Co. No. 4 presented
the Second Assistant Engineer Hon. E. H. Boyd,
who for a nnmbcr of years bad been foreman of that
company, with a magnificent silver trumpet. It is
handsomely chased and has a gold shield in tbe cen
tre, snrniountcd with a foreman's emblem. On the
top of tbe shield Is a crown under which is the Ha
waiian motto, and under this, tbe inscription in
Hawaiian,-," Presented to Hon. E. H. Boyd, Feb .3d,
1871, by the members of Engine Co No 4." The
engraving and finishing was done by Mr. Tcnnatt,
on Fort Street.
Attempted Bdrglart. A very daring and in
genious attempt to enter tbe premises of Dillingham
& Co., on King street, occurred one night last week.
That the robbery was well planned, was evidenced
from tbe manner In which the would-be burglars
went to work. The back door of the store Is an
iron one, tbe hinges of which are Imbcddcd-In the
blocks of coral of which tbe store Is built. The bur
glars endeavored to remove these blocks from tbe
walls, and had nearly snccecded In doing so, when
the noise they made attracted tbe attention of Mr.
Waller, who resides next door. He got out of bed
and came outside to ascertain the cause of tho un
osual noise, when the burglars took to their heels.
An TJssecissAnr Withdrawal. Sometime
since we received an advertisement from tho Great
American Stamp Company of Meriden, Conn., which
was addressed to all tbe boy s in the Hawaiian Islands.
By enclosing to tbe above company a certain nnmber
of postage stamps, any boy would be pnt immediately
in tbe way of making a fortune. By the last mail we
received a notice that the advertisement was with
drawn. Now, we beg to state to tbe Great American
Stamp Company, that tbe six cents invested for post
age on their last communication, was thrown away
wasted 'in Tacf because although we wonld like to
see every boy in this kiogdom make his fortnne, we
don't believe any of them will make it through the
means proposed by the Meriden Stamp Company or
any other humbug, and therefore declined to insert
their advertisement, as we shall continue to decline all
other similar applications for tbe use of tbe columns
of this paper. ,
TBEArnicAL Ac$oaiiitasczs. Ifmayle interest
ing to some of our readers to knowwhat has become
of most of the' cakytif.jf the' theatrical profession
who have visited ns of late. We bare information that
Walter Montgomery is playing in Boston, where opin
ion is divided as to his merits ; the press .denies bis
possession of genius, tat,- at the same time-gives him
icredit of being a tealoui stndent of Shakespeare.
Miss Cleveland, who was here at nearly the same time,
la ai present penormmgrery sueeessiuuy in the Uana-
dian provinces. The Carandinis hare given a series of
entertainments in San Francisco, "which, pecuniarily,
bare not been tteeessful ; however, they have estab
lished a reputation as excellent vocalists, and the press
of that city predicts brilliant season in store for them.
Miss Rose EvaM.was to make her CrsVappearance at
the California Theatre on the 23d nit. LBraham
has sccored aa efifagement with the Emerson Mlif
ftrel'a, and performs at Magnire'a Opera Hosts; The
Japsseso Irsupe bare bad a very successful season in
.Anckland, and the Gregory's are dnwtag crowded
Borbowixo Hosses without tbe permission of the
owners, seems to,b a favorite pastime with some per-
sons. On Sunday evening, a gentleman attending
church, left bis horse bitched sear by, and on coming
out at tbe conclusion of the services, lie found bis .
horse gone, and had to make his way borne on foot.
TJp to the time of writing the animal had not been re
turned. Another gentleman, while at the Theatre on
Monday evening, was served in a similar manner.
This may be considered a capital joke Irvine perpe-4'
trators, but tbe "courts may take a very different view
of the matter. If it is not horse-ctealing, it is so very
near like it that we can hardly distinguish tbe differ.

t-tj ar
Hawaiian Tbeatse. At this place of amusement
Herr Bandmann and his talented wife still continue
to draw large and appreciative audiences. In order
to give greater effect to tbe representations, Mr. Der
by has engaged the services of Mr. Neil!, a gentleman
well known to tbe play-going community, and also
those of Mrs. and Miss Maggie Knight. On Saturday
evening last, three acts of Romeo and Juliet, and the
first and second acts of Richard III, were performed,
and both were admirably rendered. Mrs. Band
mann's Juliet is the most finished impersonation of
that character which we have witnessed here, and Herr
Bandmann's Romeo is deserving of the highest com
mendation. In Richard III both artists were
equally effectire. It is worthy of remark
that, in order to gire full effect to the acting,
all the accessories were carefully attended to, which
gave an air of reality to tbe performance. On last
Monday evening, scenes from Romeo and Juliet, and
from Hamlet, and tbe delightful comedy of David
Oarrick, were performed. Ophelia, Jn the fourth act
of Hamlet, as performed by Mrs. Bandmann with the
original music, was perfection the simple madness of
the loving damsel was portrayed to tie life. But the
piece de resistance of tbe evening was the comedy of
David Oarrick. Herr Bandmann, as tho great actor,
and Mrs. Bandmann as Lydia Jackson, the stage
struck heroine, were nnsurpassed, while the minor
parts were credibly sustained. We notice"by tho pro-.
gramme for this evening, a repetition of the comedy,
a continuation of Karcisse, and tbe first act of the
Merchant of Venice,- a full and excellent programme.
Judging from Herr Bandmann's performance in one
of tbe characters which he assnmes in the comedy, wo
doubt not that his impersonation of Sbylock will be a
success. Lovers of the Thespian art should embrace
tho opportunity of seeing such artists as Herr and
Mrs. Bandmann without failure.
Australasian Steav Service. The Senate Com
mittee on Post Offices and Post Roads has met the
expectation of all who desire the commercial welfare
of tbe country, by recommending the passage of a bill
authorizing the Post master General to contract for
the establishment of mail steam service, between San
Francisco, New Zealand and Australia, via the Sand
wich Islands. Tho subsidy named is $500,000, and
tho parties with whom the contract would be madeare
W. H. Webb, who owns three fine steamships that are
ready to bo pnt on the route, and Holiday t Brcnham,
of the North Pacific Transportation Company, who
own the boats now running between San Francisco and
Honolulu. If the bill becomes a law, the new line
would be in the receipt of a total subsidy, from the
United States and tho English Colonics, of $SOO,000 a
year. This would probably cover any deficiencies of
business during the infancy of the'entcrprise, and put
its permanent success beyond doubt.
If Ramsey's bill, reported from thesame Committee,
providing for a steamlline from Puget Sound to Hon
olulu, should also become a law, as we hope it may,
the Holiday boats, we fancy, would be transferred
from the San Francisco and Honolulu route to the new
one from Puget Sound, and tbe connection between
this city and Honolulu would be made by Webb's
steamers, stopping en route to Australia. Such an
arrangement would seem to meet all the require
ments, and would afford the speediest enlargement of.
our commercial facilities in an important direction.
It is to be hoped that Congress will promptly con
sider the bills for increase of our Pacific commerce on
their merits, and not permit them to be complicated
with schemes of anolbcr character, cf little ornomerit.
Under the contract with New Zealand, the first Amer
ican steamship for that Country should leave here
February 16th. and it ought to take the news that tbe
United States hare not been less sagacious and liberal
than a remote and thinly-populated British colony
3. F. Bulletin. 3
Wailoku, February 1, 1871.
Editor of Hawaiian Gazelle: I read with interest,
your article of January 25th on the Ramie plant.
It certainly promises well as a crop which agricul
turists, small and large, at the Islands, may raise at
a profit. Wo have, however, had so many disap
pointments, that your word of caution was well put
in. Yes, let ns be cautious and not over sanguine,
about silk and Ramie, and every other thing not
yet proven to be a success here. But let us
not be discouraged from trying, in a prudent way,
any thing which holds out s fair show of success
Permit mc to suggest that tbe Government might
well aid an experiment In Ramtc culture by import
ing one or two of the $350 machines for dressing
the plant, to sell to the first producers of a crop of
say five acres, to be paid for in Ramie fibre, at some
agreed price, ssy twenty cents per pound. In the
event of a failure to cuUfvatcand make tbe fibre,
tbo .machine to be returned in good order to the
Government. A little help like this might be the
turning point of the experiment with some Indus
trious agriculturist who could not afford to Import
a machine and risk success. I believe there Is an
Item appropriated for the encouragement of-agri-culture,
to be applied at the discretion of tbe Min
ister of tbu Interior.
