at $1,100 was awarded to him. We congratulate our
friend Mr. Parker on his good luck ; and outside of
the selfishness that prompts us all, of a desire to
have beea tbe lucky one oa the occasion, we do
net know any man whom we would be more pleased
to aee take the coveted prize, than the generous
Samuel Parker, Esq. Tbe drawing
was conducted with tbe utmost fairness and waa
estireiy satisfactory to all present, whether
or spectators. We hsve already spoken in

New Is;ovt We had the pleasure of a
visit, ou Mouday last, to tbe new work shop re
ceatly erected by Mr. George Lucas, oa Fort St.,
which Is one of the most complete establishments
oa these Islands. A few months ago Mr. Lucas
went to the Coast, where he purchased a large
amount of the latest styles of machinery suitable for
his business as a carpenter and bnllder. Oo Monday
last this new machinery was put In motion at about
9 o'dock , ic, and everything' worked like a
charm. Mr. Lucas has spent a large amoant of
money on us new tnop. Dot ne nss a """ -
blishment, to show for it. He Is now prepared to
do any kind of work ia wood that the most fistidl
ous msy require, and that too at the shortest notice
B machinery Xor working la wood la of the most
approved aad latest patents, all driven by a steam
engine of twenty-four horse power. Mr.
the thanks of the people for tbe Intelligent
enterprise he has displayed ia building and equipping
so complete au establishment, aad we trust
that his enterprise and outlay will be amply rewarded
by a liberal patronage. We should not forget
to mention that Mr. Lucas has procured a telephone,
which he will erect la a few dsys, connecting
bis shop oa King street with the work shop
oa Fort street. This arrangement will save a good
deal of time, and keep everything running In harmony
between the two places ot business, and
abows how thoroughly Mr. Lucas has arranged all
hia plans for the future. We are pleased to note
tbe other improvements Is the neighborhood of
Mr. Lucas' shop, and particularly the new Carriage
manufactory of Mr. Charter, not yet finished ; bat
which will be finished in a tew dsys. Both tbe
shop ef Messrs Lucas and Chayter, on Fort street,
are handsome and .abstaatlal brick bulldinga and
are alike creditable to the dty aad tbe proprietora.
There is no mistake about the improvement of
Honolulu, within the past IS months, it baa been
steady and certain, and Is but the beginning of the

no doubt be marked by like Improvemeota la other
parts of tbe dty. Our progress seems to be opwsrd
and onward. In this connection, we wftl mention
another new improvement which deserves notice.
It la tbe new gaa works for the use of the Hawaiian

Frsre Mcus. Oa Saturday last oa theEspIaaade,
oearLalce'a new Feed Store, Mr. E. P. Adams sold at
auction 40 California bred males, received per bark
Edward James to G. ft. Maciirlaae & Co., which
realized It la said very fair prices, ringing from
$110 per head to $37. These males were all 3 years
old, unbroken animals, and arrived in very fine
order. A pair of large Kentucky mules grey matched,
sold for $300 the pair to tbe Hawaiian Government,
and a large Kentucky male, IS hands,
sold for J300 to Hon. H. A. Widemaa for his
plantation. We dip the following In reference
to this shipment from one of the California papers:
The leading basinets on the Pidflc Coast devoted
exdnslvdy to the Importation and sale of Live

successors to Crego 4 Bowley, of this dty. The
firm has two separate establishments the Carriage
and Harness repository at Merchants' Exchange
boildlng, California street, and tbe spacious

which is elegantly fitted ap for a stock salesroom,
tbe auctioneer's mart In tbe centre of tbe building
being encircled by speeding tracks, roomy stables,
spectstor's seats, offices, etc while there is ample
platform room for exhibiting tbe exteniTa line of
Carriages, Burgles, Harness, etc, imported ana lor

It Is safe to say that Bowley Bros, hare negotiated
tbe sale of more thoroughbred stock than any firm
west of tbe Rocky Mountains. A large order for tbe
Sandwich Islands has jast been filled by tbem, and
they have now at their Amphitheatre "Stables, 104
mules, California raised all of them three years old
and sound, oat of mares; also 4 jacks,
imported from Kentucky, at a cost off 750 each,
which are to go to Honolulu for work oo tbe sugar
plantations. Tbe Jacks and half of tbe mule will
be shipped to Geo. W. Macfarlanc & Co. oo the
bark Edward James, which sails for Honolulu on
Monday next. The thoroughbred stallion "Base-wood
" and a fine "Alexander" trotting mare were
also recently forwarded to the Islands by Bowley
All parties interested In live stock should call at
Bowley Bro's salesrooms, corner New Montgomery
and Mission streets, and see the animals
now awaiting shipment.
During the month of January last, the following
Etates elected United States Senators, via : Pennsylvania.
Hon. J. D. Cameron, re-elected for six
yean ; New York, Hon. Roicoe re-elected
for six yean; Connecticut, 0. H. Piatt, Esq., for
six years ; Illinois, Gen. John A. Logan, for six
years ; Missouri, Gen. James Shields for the short
term, and Col. George G. Vest, for the long term ;
North Carolina, Ex Governor Vance, for six yaars ;
Florida, Wilkinson Call, for six years; Miohigan,
Hon. Matt Carpenter, for six years. In the foregoing
lilt there are fire Republicans and four Democrats.
Tbe terms for which they hare been elected
commences on the 4th of March 1879, and runs for
six years, except that of Gen. Shields, who has beea
elected for a term less tban six years, to fill a vacancy
we believe. It is somewhat remarkable that
this is the third time Gen. Shields has bern elected
to the United Etates Senate, and eaca time from a
different State : First from Illinois, then from Minnesota,
and now from Missouri. This is a high compliment
to any man, and ws know that to far as
Gen. Shields is concerned it is well deserved, for a
purer or more upright patriot, soldier and gentleman
does not breathe than the gallant James Shields. He
fought through tbe Mexican war, in which he was
wosnded by a bullet entering his left breast and passing
round hit body ; bit recovery on that occasion
was considered almost a miracle. In the war of lhe
rebellion lie commanded a division on tbe upper
and at the bsttle of Kernstown, near Winchester,
dsfeated the Marat of the confederate army
Gen. "Stonewall" Jaektoc. In this fight Gen.
Shields waa wosnded, immediately after the action
eomacneed ; ha waa struek by a rifie ball, breaking
the right collar bone, rendering hit arm useless, bat
he did not leave the field, altboagh thai wounded,
till the battle was over and the victory won. Tl is
refreshing to know that the generous people of the
great West are ever ready to reeognise and reward
tbe patriot and soldier, whenever they have aa opportunity,
and this they do not from mercy or selfish
motives , but from a generous sense of honor and
chivalry that distinguishes them from tbe people of
the older Eastern States, where money is ths lever
that too often elevates men to position, and not ser
vices rendered their country in times of danger.

Ia a e amerct nan the great ship has undoubtedly
been aa utter tailors, and it has beea stated oa
good authority that between 15-1 and 1849 oat million
starling had bean lost npon her, by the various
rs who hare attempted to work her. Nor is it
difieult oo any impartial review of her desiga aad
subsequent history to discover the eaaie ef thla failure.
First of all. Mr. Brunei, despite his remarkable
foresight, did not realisa tbe changes which have
been produced in a single generation by the progress
of steam navigation. Coal mines have been opened tV1
ap in all parts of tbe world ; aad van If it oaee may
have been, it is now no longer neesaa ary or desirable
for a steamer to carry coal for a return Toy age. either
from India or Australia ; in fact, the proverbial folly
of "carrying coals to cf weastie " may be applied to
an Australian as to an English coal-field. Farther,
the improvements ia marine engineering whieh bars
been introduced since the Great Eastern was designed
have rendered possible large ecoiomies of coal consumption.
It is stid that tb engines fitted to the
ship consumed about SCO tons of coal per day when
tbe speed averaged aboat 13 knots per hoar; bat if
the modern typ of compound engine had been fitted
the rate of coaiamotion would not have exceeded 180
tons. Mr. Brunei appaara to have been too sanguine
ia his estimate of the speed and coal consumption, la
and that is scarcely surprising when ths entire de
parture from previous examples of steamships is remembered,
lie hoped that the ship would make the
passage to Australia in 35 days, which would hava
required an average speed of 14 knots per hoar, and
this speed was to be purchased by me consumption
of 200 tons of coal per day. With ongices of tbe
modern type his hopes may have been mora fully
and it has been reported that tbe present proprietors
(1S7S) of the ship hava at en contemplated
compounding the engines in order to save fuel, bnt
no ehaogo of this kind baa yet bean began. Tbe ehief
cause of failure in a commercial tens was, however,
the practical impossibility of securing taeh an enormous
complement of pasteogers and cargo at was estimated
to b necessary in order to cover workiog expenses
and earn a profit. Six thousand tons of dead
weight was the quantity of cargo required ; bat to
ship taoh a quantity most at any time hare involved
senous delays in port, and as a matter of fact merchants
and insurers were not ready to run the risks
involved in embarking ao much in a tingle bottom.
On the whole, therefore, two or three steamers of
moderate size, and with modern types of engine,
could be more profitably employed to carry th same
number of pasteogers and the same aggregate dead
weight of cargo as those for which the Great Eastern
was designed. During the last three or four years
strenuous efforts havo been made to improve tb
steamship service between Britain and Australia, and
competition hat been keen, not merely between tailing
ships and steamers, but between different lines of
steamers. Some of these latter now make the passage
via the cape in from 40 to 45 dsys, and it it
proposed to abridge this time to 38 dsys ; but no one
has imsglned it desirable to employ ships exceeding
aboat one-fourth the weight of the Great Eastern.

reported lost. All are laid to be lost except a boy. A
serious Hakka rising bas taken place in tbe Island
of Hainan. Several towns have been taken by rebels,
and their inhabitants msssacred. Chinese troops are
being dispatched to quell the rebellion. Another rebellions
morement is reported on tbe borders of
and Tonquin, where, it it taid, a Chinete
general has taken up arms on hisownaeeonntagainit
the King of Anam, his object being to enforce his
alleged right to occupy the throne of that sovereign.
Japix. The financial embarrassments are burdensome,
and are likely to be still farther complicated
by tbe occurrence of a misunderstanding with the
government of Corea, which may render recourse to
arms a necessity. On tha list instant tbe
aa ironclad man-of-war, sailed for Corea,
with Mr. Hanabusa, Secretary to the Department of
Foreign Affairs, aa an envoy accredited with powers
to settle the difficulties which hare arisen. Should
bis mission be fruitless, strong measures will very
probably be enforced, and a war msy follow in which
the Coreans are likely to receive the chastisement
they deserve. The epidemic of cholera, wbieh committed
extensive ravages last year in Japan, has
given rise to a strongly expressed desire on tbe part
of the Government to establish qaarantioe, or some
rystem of preventing th importation of disease. A
tomewhat severe shock of earthquake was experienced
at 11.7 p. m. on the .2 J of November last ; the shock
was distinctly felt bv th vessels ia tb harbor.
