EDiroEDFTaE Gizettb: About S o'clock In
the ercnlng, while returning from an UDsnccettfuI
effort to Hod tbe D. C Murray (it bclog quite dark,
sod tbe tcmcI had changed ber berth), I was arret
ted bv a policeman near tbe Custom Honaa Block.
Fearing that be was a robber, or that if a policeman
Ills design was robbery, 1 wag unwilling to yield
IminedUtelr to his wUties. and made a little resistance.
He said " if jou resist I will pnt a bullet
through jou," ondegaio " I trill put jon down," or
to that effect. "lam going through jou." He
took from mj pocket rolls ot money. Be whittled
and another policeman appeared, who looked at me
by the street lamp and laid, " 1 taw you on the
Murray last night, 1 (potted you' I wai asked
sjerertl times, "where those chinaman are that went
down to the wharf with you," I told them that I
bad not teen any chinaman, and had no knowledge
of any. I asked tbem to take me to Captain Fuller
on the Murray, who perhaps would clear up tbe
matter, or satisfy them respecting me, but Ibcy
refused. Another policeman was called, a native,
-who was ordered to take me to the Station House.
I waited In the office of the Station House about
forty-live minutes, when the first and second
policeman returned, and reported that they had
seen Captain Fuller, and were satisfied that 1 was
innocent. My money was returned and I left.
I would like to know, Mr. Editor, if a policeman
baa any authority or right ouder tbe lawa of this
country, to search a man la the street, and forcibly
take his money Irani him 7 I would respectfully
auegest to the authorities that policemen be
required to use more caution and moderation in
making arrest. L. P. Fubkb.

ET" Heb Rotal Highness Ltdia Domisis,
Heir Apparent to the Throne, accompanied by His
Excellency Governor Dominis, took passage in the
Steamer Kilauea on Monday last lor Hilo.
JSyOne of the discoveries made by tbe lsst
Arctic explorers is that the Polar night is 142 days
In length. What a glorious place that would be
In which to tell man wltb a bill to call around
the day after to-morrow and tret his money.
GT The latest dales from Hilo advise ns that
tbe crater of Kilauea had again become active, and
Its light was distinctly 6ccn from that tillage.
The new lake, which was referred to in our lsst
paper, as in process of fonnstion, has evidently
broken open and become active.
Besefit. The very popular
artistes. Miss Bent and Mr. Maeder, will continue
their delightful entertainments "with a benefit on
Saturday night In aid of a charitable object, when
a choice programme will be presented. We shall
hope to sec a crowded house.
Rain. The week ending with Saturday last was
marked by a heavy Kona storm, a most unusual
thing for the month of May, during which Ave and
one half(SX) inches of rain fell. The total amount
of rain since the beginning ol tbe month Is seven
and a quarter 7) iuciiea. We are now lacking
only five inches ol the average rainfall.
New Packet. Messrs. Smith and Townsend,
the well known hip builders of Boston, have sold
a new bark ol U99 tons to Cuas. Brewer Esq She
is 1T7 leet lone, 85 feet 4 inches wide and 21 feet
6 inches deep, including 7 leet 9 inches between
decks. 8he is a very fine vessel, has not yet been
named, but is Intended for the trade between
that city and Honolulu.
Mubdeil A Chinaman named Akaka, living in
Knla, Maui, and employed by lir. Akana aB a shepherd,
had his throat cut by a native named Keoni
Kopawa, on tbe9tUlusUnL The native was engaged
in an Inlrlgne with tbe Chinaman's wile a
native woman. She informed against him, and bo
was arrested and is at present lockedup in the
jail, awaiting his .trial at tbe June term or tbe
Circuit Court. - -
Egf Steamer KUanea will be laid up next week,
leaving for Kauai, on Friday, June 1, and for Hilo.
and the circuit of Hawaii on-Monday June 4. The
following week, she will not leave until Tuesday,
June 12, Monday being a national holiday. Captain
Reynolds has taken charge of her, as Captain Mar-chant
leaves on the City of Sydney, to bring down
tbe new Kilauea, which will be due here iu about
Basquet. Tbe annuel banquet of the Saint
George's Society will be held to-morrow evening at
the Hawaiian Hotel. The society usually holds this
annual meeting on St. George's Day, but circum
stances having interfered with tbe custom this year,
tbe anniversary of the birth of Her Britannic Ma
jesty has been selected as an appropriate occasion.
Tickets for the banquet can be procured ot the
Vice President T. H. Davies Esq., and or tbe Treasurer
Hon. A. S. Cleghorn.
Cactus for paper. Tbe following extract lrom
an exchaure shows that the Cactns plant, which
grows so abundantly here, may be ntilized : " The
manufacture of paper of excellent quality lrom the
species of cactus growing in great abundance In the
Mojave desert has recently been tested at the Lick
paper mill, at San Jose, by parties interested, nbo
propose, if ponlble, to obtain control ot all the paper
mills on the coast and set them in operation on
this material exclusively. The cactus paper Is said
to be very strong, aud tbe supply of material unlimited."
AtsOTUEB Tidal Wave. Captain Crane of the
schooner Nettie Merrill informs us that on Saturday
morning last, the 19th Inet. at S:S0 o'clock,
thero was a sudden fall of the sea off Lahalna,
MauL Wishing to take advantage of the high tide,
he bad commenced taking off tugar before light,
and bad gone ashore with bis men and had loaded
the boat, and was pulling off to the schooner, but
when he had proceeded two or three hundred feet
from tbe wharf, the sea fell without any warning
leaving tbe boat on the coral, and the adjacent reefs
exposed. Tbe boat's crew jumped out, and were
about to run ashore, fearful of being overwhelmed
in tbe return tide, but they returned in response to
the Captain's remonstrance, and In less than a minute
the sea slowly returned to its former level.
Tbe usual depth of water at that point Is from eight
to ten feet. It Is to be regretted that the
harbor was not in operation that its
action here might have been put on record.
Madame Bishop, whom or our readers will recollect,
has just completed her third voyage around tbe
world. A Boston paper gives ber tbe following notice
under tbe bead or " the greatest woman traveler."
"Madame Anna Bishop, the English cantatrice, linguist
and traveler, has returned to England, after a
third successful tour around the world. She Is tbe
greatest female traveler now living, if not the greatest
that ever baa lived, not excepting the late Ida
Pfclffer. There Is hardly a town of note in the civilized
world she bss not visited, aud it has been her
good fortune to sing before a greater number of people
during ber professional career, than any other
artist living. In a notice of her last appearance In
in South Africa, the Cape Argus of November 11,
1870. says: When it is remembered that Mme.
Bishop has been a prominent figure In the musical
world since 1839, when with Grisl, Garcia,
and Lablacbe, she appeared In the Royal Opera
House, one is lost in amazement at tbe power and
sweetness of voice and the delicate vocalization
which she displayed 4ast night In "Noima." She
has'travcled In moat paita or tbe world ; in America
and Australia her name is ks well known a in
Europe. She has been shipwrecked, and captured
by robbers; but In spite "of hardships and daugers,
she retains her great power still."
Waterspout. On Friday last, at 10.80 a. m. an interesting
natural phenomenon was witnessed. a
large number of persons in this town, from tbe city
front. A short distance in advance or a heavy
shower which was passing up from the south,
there was a Urge and magnificent waterspout
It moved slowly and majestically slang
past the harbor, about a mile out to sea, and consisted
of a central column extending downward
lrom tbe dense overhanging canopy of black clonds,
tbe base of which was encircled with a huge bowl-shaped
mast ol roam and spray which was apparently
drawn up from tbe surface of the sea. Both
column aud mass of spray were revolving from left
to right, as the bauds of a watch move, at tbe rate
of about thirty revolutions per minute.
flashes ol vivid lightning were seen playing
about the Inky pillar, which moved onward for
abont twenty minutes, when It strnck tbe sand spit
beyond Kalibi and instantly collapsed. Tbe generally
accepted theory Is that waterspouts arc caused
by whirlwinds passing over the surface or the sea,
but it seems highly improbable that a simple whirlwind
rotating at the rate of thirty or even sixty
times a minute, can be an adequate cause for so
marked a phenomenon. Whirlwinds are not
seen In certain localities, raising columns
of dust and light rubbish to a great height in the
air, but lu case tbey pass off from tbe laud onto tbe
sea, although the column of dust may continue its
course, we never beard of an instance of its bring
gradually succeeded by a column of mist or ipray.
If we are not mistaken, wsterapouts are never seen
on a cloudlets day, but one or their Inevitable conditions
Is a dense rain-cloud banging low over the
sea. From this (act, and also lrom the fact that
they are almost Invariably accompanied by electric
phenomena, we are inclined to the opinion that
wind has little or nothing to do with their formation,
but that they are the result, in some unexplained
manner, of tbe action of electricity.
PosTPOsnrraT. As Monday, the Hth of June,
Is a public holiday, the steamer .Kilauea will not
sail until tbe next day, on her Hilo trip.
t3T" Bark D. C. Murray leaves for San Francisco
to-day with a full cargo of oil, sujar and molasses.
She has also about twenty passengers booked.
Fire. There was a fire on tbe Papaikou Plantation,
Hilo, last week, which destroyed a small
dwelling bouse. It was caused by a cnild playing
Bare Mart Belle Roberts. The suit in Admiralty
agalust tuW vessel has been heard during
tbe past week by Justice Jadd, and on Saturday tbe
Court gave judgment against ber. Captain Gray,
her master, who did the smuggling, is still confined
iu the Insane Asylum.
8now Storm. .Mr. C. J. Lyons, of the Government
Survey, reports tbst during the cyclone of
last week, while tbe rest of the country was having
so much rain, there was an Immense fall of snow
on tbe mountain peaks of Hawal, Mautia Kea and
Mauna Loa, and they are still covered with their
white robes for aloug dlstauce from their summits.
Farewell. We learn with profound and sincere
sorrow that the A. E. (whatever that may
stand for) of the P. U. AdetrtUer finds the climate
of Honolulu uncongenial, and has taken passage by
the bark CoringA for distint Cathay. We trust
that be will be successful in rendering the songs of
the Flowery Kingdom into English metrical versions,
and for mental pabulum uii Die vojage, we
cnmuicnd the following stanza from Burns, sent us
by a correspondent for his special benefit :
"No more of your titled acquaintances boast.
And In what lordly circles you're been ;
An Inlfact is still butau insect at most,
Tboagli ft crawl on the head of a queen."
From Hanalei. The storm of last week was extremely
violent at Han-lei, ott the island of Kauai.
Letters from that valley report that on Wednesday
tbe 16th, there was a heavy there
accompanied with a pouring rain, and that
shortly after noon a freshet came down the river
with such a rapidity that in less thin twenty-fire
minutes tbe water rose fifteen feet, and spread over
the whole valley, carrying off horses, mules, oxen
and other aulmals, taking several scows out to sea,
and covering cane fields with uprooted trees, mud
and rubbish. The manager nt the Prlucevillu Plantation
bad hard work to prevent property from
being floated off from the boiling bouse and shnps
in the vIcinily..The water swept through the storehouse
on the beach iu which was 250kegs of sugar,
and the contents of abont 100 kegs are supposed to
hare beeu destroyed.
To the Editor of tbe Hawaiian Gazette:,
Dear Sib. During tbe past few we. ks a great deal
of 'rain has fallen, although it is usually tbe case
that we hare but little at this season of tbe year, and
I believe that its coincidence with tbe late unique
volcanio eruption is not fortuitous. It is a well
known fact, ascertained by a long series of observations,
that rain is almost sure to follow a large fire,
or a great battle, or a strong volcanie eruption, causing
any disturbance of the atmosphere by a great
diffusion of gaseous matter.
Tbe volcanic action or this country being now concentrated
in the island of Hawaii, not only can we
suppose that the rain is more abundant tbere than
on tbe other islands, but also that tbe production or
volcanie gas may render possible the cultivation or
certain products on that island which have proved
railures in other parti or the country where volcanie
action is extinguished.
It is certain that the coffee plantations are successful
on Hawaii, and I venture to predict that it will
be so with wine cultivation. The main thing should
be the choice of situations with reference to the position
of tbe volcano, and the seasons.
The volcano is one of the first elements of prosperity
in this group It is only necessary for mankind
to attain success by patiently studying natural
phenomena, and making a practical application of
the results. P. A. oeLaNux.
