be formed as to tbc nature of tbe action.
From Kau we learn that the earthquake of the

unusually long but the motion was slight and rcgn

such convulsions arc somewhat common, it would

The enterprising Individual in whom Mr. Tannatt

Still Shakt. Labalna was treated to another
shock of earthquake on Wednesday morning last,
about two o'clock. People were so badly scared,
that they did not waste any time on their toilets, but
made tbeir appearance out doors In tbe lightest kind
of attire. c understand that a light shock was
felt here on Friday night, a few minutes before
twelve. There arc a number who did not feel It
probably for the reason that tbey never notice any
thing so smalt. Earthquakes arc getltlng to be
quite common all over the wotld, so that we can
not be surprised at being treated to them here occa
sionally. Tne Moses Taylor left her wharf at a few minutes
past four o'clock on Thursday afternoon last. Tbe

I lie steamer off was rather small. At tbe time she
left her wharf, a drizzling rain set In, and although
she bad a large uumber of passengers on board, very
few were to be seen, and altogether, her departure
was anything but a. lively affair. The week after
the sailing of the steamer always seems to be the
dullest In the month, and tbc last, particularly so.
What helped It mora probably, was tbe prospect of
having to await her return for our next malls.
It Is some months since the community has been
without an entertainment of some dUcriptlon.
Since tbc departure of the steamer quiet again reigns
Ithln the theatre, and will probably continue so for
a month at least. Tbc next steamers however, may
bring some talent along. By last advices from Aus
tralia, we notice that the wonderful prcstigiator
and Illusionist, Robert Heller, was giving farewell
cutcrtalumcnts In tbe colonics, and It is possible
that be may appear here shortly on his way to ttie
United States. Gen. Tom Thumb and bis diminu

Tue Mount Cenis Tunnel. This, onc of the
greatest human undertakings, was so far completed
on tbc ICtb of January, as to allow tbe workmen on
tbe French and Italian sides to communicate with
each other through tbe tunnel. Tbc work was com
menced in 1S57, having thus occupied over thirteen
years In Ita.complctlon. Some idea of the magni
tude of the work can be formed when it is consider
ed that the tunnel Is little less than eight miles long,
rassinir under tbrec Alpine peaks, knowu as Col

ranged in the order In which they are named in pass
from France to Italy. Tbe central peak is over
1 eleven thousand feet above the level of the sea. It
will require about six months to complete tbe rail
road through the tunnel, .which, when completed,
will make the journey from France to Italy as' easy
as that across the German border in times of peace
Tags. We bear many complaints of parties who
liavepald their taxes and furnished their canines
w 1th the tags prescribed by the act of tbe last Legis
lature, that persons to them unknown have apppro
priatcd tbe same and probably transferred them to
their own canine pets. This is s cheap way ot pay
ing the dog tax, but is rather bard on those who,
having compiled with the law, may be obliged in
order to save thelr.pcts, to pay their doglaies over
again and procure new tags. It Is to be hoped that
this petty larceny may be detected, in some cases at
hast, and that tbe punishment meted to tbe culprits
may warn otters from like Infrlngmcnts of thejajr.

Death of Ret. W, J. Ssow. Never were we
more surprised than to read tbe sad announcement
of the death, January 11th, of this youthful minister
of the Gospel, tinder thirty years ofage. From the
fact that be was once a member of onr Bethel Sab
bath-school, and hit parents were so long members
of our congregation, we had come to feel a personal
Interest In blm as a most scholarly and promising
young minister, before whom there was along career
of usefulness and renown. Most truly do we sym
patblzc with tbc bereaved .friends. In the Boston
Qmgrtgatlotialitt, Lawrence American, and San Fran
cisco Ikeific, we see extended notices of his life an
death. During all his career as a stadtnt at tbe
Royal School, Oihu College, Harvard University,
Andovcr Seminary, and as a chaplain and preacher,
there was a peculiar uprightness and Integrity of de
meanor, a scholarly finish and religions fervor, which
impressed most favorably the minds of all with
whom he came in contact. There never was a more
affectionate and dutlfnl son. Most heartily can w
subscribe to every word which we haveeeen printed
respecting him, whose death we now so much de
plore. It is a blessed thought, however, that good
men neverdie. The following notice of his funeral
"FcsEnALOF Rev. Mn, Snow. Thp funeral of
Rev. W. F. Snow took place yesterday afternoon
from tbe Eliot Church. Lawrence, of which he was

SurrosED Infanticide. Considerable excitement
has existed during tbc last few dayB In regard to tbe
dead body of a child which was found under cir
cumstances which led to tbe supposition that its
death was not a natural one. Tbc facts, as far as we
have been able to ascertain, are as follows: On
Thursday afternoon last, a number of native children
were bathing at Kabololoa, near the slaughter bouses
below tbe prison, 'and In running about discovered
tbc naked body of an infant lying in tbc mud. When
they reached home and informed tbeir parents of
the discovery, they were not credited, and no attcn
Hon was paid to their story. On the following
evening-, while some women, who had heard the.
report, were fishing In the vicinity, tbey concluded
to look around before returning home, and found
the body of the child as bad been reported. As it
was quite late when they rctnrncd home, no
Information was sent to town uutil Saturday morn
ing, when word was brought to the Police Station.
A policeman was instantly dispatched to learn tbc
facts of tbc case, and finding tbe report true, an
inquest was held that afternoon. The body was
blackened and shriveled up, having to all nppearance
lain some days. It was impossible to tell how old
it may have been, or whether it was a child ot native
or foreign parents. The supposition is, however.
that it must have been at least three or four weeks
old at the time of its death. As nothing satisfactory
was proved at the inquest, beyond the fact of finding
the body of tbe child, and that it was a girl, the
inquest was adjourned until next Saturday, in hopes
that some evidence may in tbc meantime transpire
which will throw some light on the case In tbe
opinion bf many, tbe discovery of tBc Infant at- the
place and in tbe manner described, docs not by any
means prove that it belonged In that vicinity. It
may have been taken there by tbe water either from
the Nuuanu stream, which has been high of late", or
rom tbc harbor, and left by the receding tide.
Oun neighbor of tbc dWftserbas bit our opinion
on the appropriation of articles from papers here, by
certain San Francisco journal, precisely. Here is
what he says:
Cool, if not Impudent. We have for some time
noticed that certain San Francisco papers arc in tbc
habit of appropriating whole articles from papers
published here rclatlngtomattcrsofgcncralinlcrest,
without crediting the same, as is the custom among
all honorable newspaper men. Wc do not wish to
be understood as Intimating lbat the San Francisco
editors are not honorable. Wc admire cheek
and impudence to a degree; wc like to see newspa
pers and Individuals as audacious as they well can be.
It makes them popular. In the case of a newspa.
per, it adds to its circulation andluflucnccjln the case
of an Individual It makes n place (or him In tbc front
ranks, where better and more modest and honorable
men give place to tbc more audacious. But, these
things may bo carried too far. It Is" barely possible,
for Instance, that in publisblug a full and carefully
prepared acconnt of a marine disaster those who pre
pare it feel that If any one Is to have tbe credit of tbc
labor of making It up and furnishing Illustrations,
tbey ehonld have it themselves. It is also possible
that when such persons sec their labors appropriated
witliouUproper credit, tbey look upon the appropri
ator very much as they would upon a person who
bad appropriated anything else which rightfully be
longed to them.
Now this Is precisely tbc case with various articles
published in San Francisco in relation to tbe loss of
the U. S. S. Saginaw. Articles from both tbe pa
pers published here have been appropriated without
credit, and tbe editors and rcportcis ofSau Francisco
have, apparently, sought to tako tho credit to them
selves of investigating facts, when they have only
used the scissors. We think that our cotemporary
will unite with us In protesting against this kind ol
San Francisco Correspondence.
San Fhascisco, Feb. 15th,-1671.
San Francisco Is emphatically a city of sensations,
There is' always some popular excitement to stir the
pulso of tbo multitude, or some new pleasure to cxhil-
erate them. Just now, the furore 11 for skating. Do
not imagine that Arctic cold has suddenly descended
upon this region, or that tbe cnterpruingcltizenshare
mportcd from Alaska fields of ice. They have ftinnd
a way to enjoy the sports of winter without its dis
comforts. A large and perfectly smooth floor takes
the place of tbe crystal surface of lake or pond, and
mall wooden rollers are the substitute for the steel
blade under the feet. Skating rinks upon this system
aro quite numerous here and in adjacent cities. Tbe
immenso building known as the Mechanic's Pavillion,
is the finest. Here throngs of ladies and gentlemen,
together with children, go to practice the graceful
amusement. A fine band of music enlivens tbe sport,
and there is not wanting the occasional incident, so
amusing to spectators, of a slip and a fall by some
unhappy wight, who jumps up very quickly and tries
desperately to look as if he did not mind it. In the
evening, when the floor is covered with a company of
well dressed people, gliding swiftly about and per
forming skillful movements, the scene is a brilliant
one. Yet the sport seems rather tame to those who
have known the joy of moving over miles of a smooth
ice surface, with a facility and speed that ia almost
like flying ; but tbe.substitute here enjoyed is a good
one. It is surprising to sen what intricate movements
a good performer will execute. Preparations are in
progress for a grani skating carnival, to take place in
a few weeks.
To .torn from sport to business. The Honorable
Julias Vogel, Postmaster General of New Zealand,
who arrived by the last steamer, met the Chamber of
Commerce in a special meeting and made aa address
upon tho matter of the stem line between this port
and New Zealand. He said that the contract with
Mr. Webb had been practically concluded since his
arrival in this city, and that there would sot be any
second line in competition with it. The address,
which was spiced with liberal flattery to San Francis
co and to the States, was received with enthusiasm,
and resolutions passed, urging upon Congress a con
sideration of the matter independently of other pro
jects that are foreign to it. Mr. t cjcl has passed on
to Washington to further the enterprise.
This city is maintaining its good name for liberality
by generous contribntions in aid. of the sufferers in
France. Americans are snaking up a handsome snm
by private subscription, to which thebeneft of several
public entertainments will bo added. The French
residents hers displayed a noble liberality towards
tbeir nnhappy countrymen, having already given
(180,000 for the war, they now add $12,000 more to
the relief fund. It Is pleasing to note that the Ger
mans take part largely in this humane offering, to
relieve distress in the country of aa enemy.
The Pagan dementia the population displays enter
prise. The six companies that direct tbe afiairs of
the Chinese' bavo jnst fitted vp and opened a new
tebple. .Access to it is from Dupont-itreet, through
a narrow ana airiy auey, wdkb onngs ue visitor to
a brick building, on the third floor of which is the
"joss-house." Here are images of various gods,
placed within shrines properly adorned with paint,
gilding, and artificial flower. Near tbe entrance Is
an altar of teak wood, carved and ornamented, on
which, is aa image of an old man representing tbe
god of forests. He is believed to have the power to
cause a forest to spring up immediately wherever he
may please. At the back of tire room are the three
principal idols, one the god of Agriculture, anotherthe
god of War, while tbe third ia tbe God of tbe Brave.
The Images are four feet or more In height, reprerent-
ing their subject! in a sitting -posture. Before each 01
them a lamp Is constantly burning, and upon a table
in front, covered with silk, embroidered with gold
are urns for burning punk, and dishes filled with fruit
and flowers. There, are pans also, where the worship
pers may place their offerings of lighted joss-sticks
and burning paper. On either side of the, main room
are smaller apartments, in which . other deities hare
their local habitation and receive honors. One altar
is dedicated to a female saint, who was of remarkable
eminence for patience and philanthropy. Anothe:
watches over sailors, and a third is the goddess of
flowers. Three priests arei attendance at the temple,
wearing long red gowns and black eaps. Worship
pers stand before the image they woold adore and
bend the body forward, at the tame time railing the
clasped hands up and down. Gilt and silver paper,
punk and candles may be purchased on the spot to be
burned before the deities. The only worshipper who
paid his devotions when your correspondent was pre
sent made bis hasty bows before the gods, and then
amused himself by kicking a shuttle-cock to and fro
about the sacred precincts. But it is not alone bell"
then .worshippers that hare learned how to combine
devotion and amuaemeat.
Many of your readers will be Interested in hearing
that Rev. Dr. Scudder, the popular pastor of one of
the Presbyterian Churches of the city, has resigned
his charge and will soon remove to Brooklyn. Tbe
state of bis health imperatively requires a change to
a new field of labor. His people part with him most
reluctantly, and the loss to tho city is which he has'
been a power will be deeply felt.
Plans have just been accepted fo'r a new City Hall
It will cost a million and a half of dollars, and will
be one of the finest edifices in tbe country.
The Carandini Company are making a tour through
tbe cities and towns of the State to meet with favor.
Their success In the city was hindered by several un
favorable circumstances. A complimentary benefit
as given -them which brought oat a fine audience.
A welcomo rain has been falling to-day. The pros
pects for good crops are said to be fair. A much lar
ger breadth of land has been sown this year than last,
and with a little more moisture the hearts of the farm.
ers will be made glad by an abundant harvest.
