VOLUME I. HONOLULU, HAWAIIAN ISLANDS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1885. NO. 100
THE LADY OF CASTELNOllE
A. D. I70O.
llretagne had not her peer.
In the province far or near
There were never such brown tresses,
Such a faultless hand ;
She had youth and she had gold,
She had jewels all untold,
And many a lover bold
Wooed the Lady of the Land.
lint she, with queenliett grace,
Dent low her pallid face,
And " Woo me not for Jesus' sake,
Fair gentlemen," she said.
If they woo'd, then with a frown
She would strike thejr passion down,
She might have wed a crown
To the ringlets on her head.
From the diy castle-tips,
Hour by hour she watched the ships,
Like sheeted phantoms
Coming and going evermore ,
While the twilight settled down
On the sleepy seaport town,
On the gabled peaked and brown,
That had sheltered king of yore.
Djtky belts of cedar-wood
Partly claspM the widening flood;
Like a knot of daisies
Lay the hamlttis on the hill ;
In the hostelry below
Sparks of light would come and go,
And faint voices, strangely low,
From the garrulous old mill.
Here the land in grassy swells
Gently broke ; there sunk in dells
With mosses green and purple,
And prongs of rock and peat ;
Here, in statue-like repose,
An old wrinkled mountain rose,
With its hoary head in snows,
And wild roses at its feet. .
And-so oft she sat alone
In the turret of gray stone,
And looked across the moorland,
So woful, to the sea,
That there grew a village-cry,
How her cheek did lose its dye,
As a ship, once, sailing by,
Faded on the sapphire lea.
Her few walks led all one way,
And all ended at the gray
And ragged, jagged rocks
That fringe the lonesome beach ;
There she would stand, the sweet I
With the white surf at her feet.
While above her wheeled the fleet
Sparrow-hawk, with startling screech.
And she ever loved the sea
God's half-uttered mystery
With its million lips of shells,
Its never-ceasing roar j
And '(was well that, when she died,
They made her a grave beside
The blue pulses of the tide,
By the towers of Castelnore.
Now, one chill November morn,
Many russet autumns gone,
A strange ship with folded wings,
Lay dozing off the lea J
It had lain throughout the night
With its wings of murky white
Folded, after weary flight
The worn nursling of the sea.
Crowds of peasants flocked the sands ;
There were tears and clasping hands;
And a sailor from the ship
Stalked through the church-yard gate;
Then amid the grass that crept,
Fading, over her who slept,
How he hid his face and wept,
Crying "Late, alas I tec late t
And they called her cold. God knows.
Underneath the winter snows,
The invisible hearts of flowers grow
Hipe for blossoming I
And the lives that look so cold,
If their stories could be told,
Would seem cast in gentler mould,
Would seem full of love and spring.

INTERESTING TOR OUR READERS.
The last official census of this Kingdom
acknowledged here 9,377 Portuguese; but, as
the Luso Hawaiiano justly remarked some
time ago, that number is lor short ol the
actual truth, for outside of the fact of the
census being considered as not having reached
all the actual Inhabitants, the above figures do
not include the last arrival of immigrants 370
In the Dacca nor does It enumerate the number
of Portuguese children born in this country,
which go into the "foreigners, Hawaiian-born,"
nor the children of Portuguese married
to Hawaiian or half-white women, which go
under the heading of "half-castes." It is
therefore no exaggeration to say that the
Portuguese colony in these Islands numbers
now over 10,500 souls, which makes one-eighth
of the total population. Thus they have
become quite an important element amongst
us, and as very few of them, if any, romefroni
Portugal itself, the majority of them having
come from the Azores, with the exception of n
few who belong to Madeira it has been
considered th'at it might interest the public to
know something about that country, and 1
have been asked to furnish some information
on this subject to the readers of the Press.
NUMIIER OK ISLANDS AND AREA.
The archipelago of the Azores is composed of
nine islands, situated in the Atlantic Ocean, at
the distance of about 800 miles from the coast
of Portugal, between 36 deg. 57 sec. and 41 deg
of latitude north, and 25 and 31 deg. 16 sec.
longitude west (Greenwich). They are natu
rally-divided into three groups, the most east
ern containing the islands of Miguel and Santa
Maria, with the Formigas Islets; the middle
one, composed of Forceira, Grocioza, San
Jorge, Pico and Fayal, and the western one
made of Flores and Corvo. The distance
between the first group and the second is 138
kilometers, and that between the second and
the third of 315 kilometers. The distance
between the most eastern point of the group
and the next nearest continental land, Calo da
Roca, is 3,025 kilometers. The area of
these different islands is as follows, in square
kilometers 1 Santa Maria 117; San Miguel
747; Ternira 500; Granosa 98; San Jorge
220; Pico 406 ; Fayal 178; Flores
160, and Corvo 19, the total being 2,529
square kilometers. By dividing the above
numbers by three one obtains very approx
imate figures in square miles.
They are all of volcanic origin, as is attested
not only by the nature of the rocks which constitute
them lavas, basalts and trachytes but
also by the frequency of the intense earthquakes
by which they are visited ; and as they are
very high and rugged, very fertile, and also
blessed with a very even climate, they have
many remarkable points of similarity with the
Hawaiian groups so that it ought to be no subject
of wondeT to see how successfully the
Portuguese adopt themselves to the "Kanaka
Kingdom," and that, on the contrary, it ought
to be well understood that no where could be
found a more suitable kind of people than the
Azorians to repopulate our nearly deserted
islands. The highest of the Azores is Pico,
whose immense conical mountains, from which
its name was derived, and which rises to about
7,812 feet, contains an active volcano.
is also very hilly, especially in its eastern
part, and presents several extinct craters ; San
Miguel is traversed by,a volcanic "cordilhcira,"
in which is noticeable an extinct crater of five
kilometers in diameter, at the height of 2,741
feet above the sea, the bottom of which is occupied
by four lakes. At a little distance to
the west of San Miguel there seems to be a
submarine volcanic crater, which gives signs
of activity every once in a while; submarine
eruptions have repeatedly occurred, sometimes
accompanied by tne appearance of temporary
islands, the most notable of which was one wit
nessed in 181 1 by a British man-of-war, whose
commander baptized it Sabrina; but it disap
peared at the end -of a few weeks. Earthquakes
have often been disastrous. In 1522, the city of
Villa Fianlo, then capital of San Miguel, was
engulfed with its 6,000 inhabitants; in 1614
a small town in Forceira was similarly destroyed.
The latest eruptions in San Miguel has
been in 1852 and 1867. Pico, San George and
Forceira have also often been uncomfortably
shaken or made lively by rivers of lava; but
strange to say, the nearest island to San Miguel,
Santa Maria, has never been touched, thus
sharing the immunity enjoyed by the western
group, Flores and Corvo, and by Graciosa,
Fayal remembers only one eruption in 1G72,
Nevertheless that all the Islands, even the
quiet ones, participate of the same volcanic
nature, Is attested by the fact that in all of
them hot springs and mlncial waters arc to be
found. The most remarkable of these, however,
are found In S. Miguel, where, in a place
called "as Furnass," (the furnaces), exist
some true "geysers," called "as caldelras,"
from which the boiling water is spouted up in
columns to the hlght of about 13 feet, after
which It melts in clouds of steam. The
ground around Is covered with cristallion
sulpher, resembling hoar frost, Near to the
same is a muddy crater, whose contents are
continually in n state of violent ebullition,
accompanied by a roaring noise, though
nothing Is projected except occasionally a
little spray, similar to what is noticed at
Kilauea. Other hot springs of different
temperature abound, which arc extensively
used for medicinal purposes, bath-rooms and
other conveniences being erected for the
RESEMULANCE WITH THE HAWAIIAN
The nature of the lava found in S. Miguel
is much like the Hawaiian ones, some being
vitrified like our pahoehoe, and others
like the a a i. Some decompose readily
and make excellent and fertile soils; others
defy all atmospheric influences and repel vege
tation. The vholc aspect of S. Miguel l
very similar to our Islands here, and especially
to Hawaii. From a bluff cliff it rises to a
central ranee and lofty mountain, and then
declines again gradually to the sea; the surface
is moreover uneven, and deeply excavated by
numerous gulches. In the higher parts a
thick undergrowth of shrubs gives the land a
rich and wooded appearance, whilst heavy
rains falling on the mountain tops afford a
constant and abundant supply of water, which
makes its way in small streams, running rapidly
down to the sea on all sides, and It will strike
the reader how much this description applies
climate or Tin; aores.
As I have said, therlimUo is vcty even,
though rather cold on the high lands. The
thermometer varies between a medium of 48
deg. (45 deg. being the lowest known) in Jan
uary. to 82 deg. Fahr. in July, the highest on
record having been 86 deg., and between the
extremes the changes arc very gradual. But
the climate is vary damp and stormy. The
vegetation is quite varied and rich, to an extent
unknown here, as outside of having
nearly all the European plants, many semi-tropical
plants and trees thrive well. There
is no pulu, but nature has furnished a supplement
in the shape of a fern, (Dicksonia culuta),
which the natives call "cabellinho," and
which they export to Brazil and Portugal, as a
material for stuffing mattresses.
FERTILITY OF THESE ISLANDS.
It is not nccccssary to say that this volcanic
exit is very fertile. Further, all the available
arable land is cultivated, especially in S.
Miguel, whlchjis characterized by an enormous
production of oranges. The Azores also produce
enough cereals for home consumption;
vegetables, flax and fruits, which constitute an
important trade of exportation. There are no
industries in the archipelago, outside of a growing
whaling business and of a few manufactories
of flax goods, of oil and of alcohol. But
the fertility of the soil is sufficient to maintain
an active commerce, which is constantly Increasing,
and an idea of which will be given
by the following figures 1 The shipping items
of all the ports for one year included 554 sailing
vessels and 147 steamers for inter-island
commerce, and 440 sailing vessels and 50
steamers for foreign trade.
CAUSES OF EMIGRATION.
With such favorable circumstances, it will
be asked what induces the people of the
Azores to leave their country? Two things
disasters in agriculture and over-population.
The islands, used to derive great wealth from
wine, which since 1852 was destroyed by the
Oidium; to this was added the destruction of
orange trees by the Locus Hespridas; the
people were obliged to emigrate en masse, and
it is only the planting of figs, apricots, peaches
and other fruit trees which has helped the
remaining inhabitants to wait for better times,
when, as now, vines and oranges again thrive.
But over-population can only be alleviated by
emigration, and from the well-known extreme
prolific nature of the Portuguese women
even now that emigration is stated to
take away from 3,ooo,to 4,000 people a year
10,234 In three years, according to a re
cent statement of the Luso yet the population
is constantly increasing. The last census
reckoned the population at a total of 261,000
inhabitants ; but, to give the reader a bette"
Idea of the meaning of those figures fur that
amount of land, we shall say that for the Hawaiian
Islands tobepopulatedina proportionate
manner, would require very nearly to 2,000,
000 of inhabitants I How near our paltry
figures of 80,578 sounds by the side of this I
The Azores are divided into three districts,
subdivided Into nineteen "conulhos" (munici
palities), with 120 "freguezias" (parishes). The
district of Ponta Dalgada contains 125,000
inhabitants, and is formed of six municipalities
in S, Muguel and one in Santa Maria.
The capital is in S. Miguel,
(16,000) inhabitants J principal towns, Kebeira
Grande (8,000 inhabitants), Villa Franca do
Lamqo (.i,coojinhabltaiit9)i and Povoaco (4,000
inhabitants ) The district of Angra, with a
total of 73,000 inhabitants, is formed by two
municipalities in Terenla, one in Graisor.i, and
one in S. Gorge; the capital is Angra do
in Toreira (12,000 inhabitants), principal
towns, Uaia de Victoria (3,000 inhabitants),
Praia do Graciora (2,000 inhabitants), and
Vilas, in S. Gorge (2,000 inhabitants). The
district of Horta total population 63,'Xio is
formed by one municipality in Fayal, three
in Pico, two In Flores and Corvo. The
capital is Hortaz, in Fayal, with the best harbor
of the group (8,000 inhabitants) ; principal
towns, Lagrs (3,000 inhabitants), in Pico and
Santa Cruz (2,000 inhabitants), In Flores.

A UIT OP HISTORY.
Of course, this Is not the place til give any
historical data on this group. . It will
suffice here to say that from the abundance of
Carthagcniancolnsfound at Corvo, it !i presumable
that these islands had been settfed by this
antique nation, and though they .have been
unknown to the Greeks and Rothansj they
were known to Arabian geographers. However,
it wasnotbefore 1432 that they v. erd found
byGonsal VelthoGabral. The cotonizaii.nl was
not begun till 1444, and since 1457, when .the
whole of the group had been discovered) they
have never ceased to belong to Portugal)
although they went over to Spain nt the lime
between iqSonnd 1G40, when Portugal was
subjected to this power, and between 829
and 1833 they obeyed Queen Maria da Gl ria,
whilst Portugal was ruled by Don Miguel. Of
course they have been peopled by P
but there was in influx of Flemish set lcrs
after 1466, which have left an imprint on the
population ; and at present negroes, M ors,
mulattoes, English, Scotch and Irish
are found in considerable numUers,
through which the race is noticeably crolsed.
Education is rather backward, but strenuous
efforts are made both by the Government and
by private parties to ameliorate that state of
things, and that progress is being made in
this, as in other respects, can be asterted
by the fact lately published by the Luso, of
no less than 40 newspapers being published in
the group. A. Marques.
AN ANTIQUARY'S GHOST STORY.
Little more than two months have passed
since my personal experience of mental phc
nomena were strikingly enhrged by the, occurrence
with which the following narrative deals.
Yet already I find that round the original story
there has gathered n surprising accumulation
of the mythical element, and that I myself am
in dancer of becomtnc a hero of romance in
more senses than one. As I object to be
looked upon as a kind of medium to whom
supernatural visitations are vouchsafed, and
on the other hand, do not wish to be set down
as a crazy dreamer, whose d'sorgnrized rrrv
rous system renders him abnormally liable
to fantastic delusions, I have yielded to the
request of some who have begged me to make
public the following paper. I am told that
there are those who make buiy themselves in
collecting similar stoiies, and if it be so, if is
better they should hear the facts from me than
after they have passed through other channels.
The narrative was writtenmiany dayjiftfljt!
the events, when all the circumstances were
fresh in my recollection.
On the 10th of October, 1879, I drove over
from Norwich to Mannington Hall, to spend
the night nt Lord Orford's. Though I was in
perfect health and high spirits, it is fair to state
that for some weeks previously I had had a
great deal to think about soinelittleanxiety, and
some considerable mental strain of one kind or
another. It was not, however, conscious of
anything approaching weariness, irritability or
"fag." I nrrived at four P. M., and was engaged
in pleasant and animated conversation
till it was time to dress for dinner. Wc
dine at seven ; our party numbered six persons.
Of these four at least had been great travelers.
I myself was rather a listener; the talk was
generaland discursive and amused and interested
me greatly. Not for a single moment did it turn
upon the supernatural; it was chiefly concerned
with questions of art and the experiences
of men who had seen a great deal of
the world, and could describe intelligently
what they had seen and comment upon it suggestively.
. I have very rarely been at n more
pleasant party. After dinner we played a
rubber. We " left off as we began," and as
two of the guests had some distance to drive,
we broke up at half-past ten.
The main object of my going over to Mannington-was
to examine and take notes upon
some rare books in Lord Orford's library,
which I had been anxiously wishing to get a
sight of for some years, but had never been
fortunate enough to meet with up to this time.
I asked leave to sit up for some hours and
make transcripts, His lordship at first wished
me to let his valet remain In attendance, to see
all lights put out, but as this would have embarrassed
me and compelled me to go to bed
earlier than I wished, and as it seemed likely
that I should be occupied till two or three
in the morning, it was agreed that I should
be left to my own devices and the servants
should be allowed to retire. By eleven
o'clock I was the only person down-stairs, and
I was very soon busily at work and absorbed
in my occupation,
The room in which I was writing is a large
one with a huge fire-place and a grand old
chimney; and it is heedless to say that it is
furnUhed with every comfort and luxury.
The library opens into this room, and I had to
pass out from where I was sitting into this
library and get upon a chair to reach tin-volumes
I wanted to examine. There were
six small volumes in all, I took them dawn
and placed them at my right hand in a little
pile, and sat to work sometimes reading,
sometimes writing. As I finished with a book
I placed it in front of me. There were four
silver candlesticks upon the table, the candles
all burning, and, as I am a chilly person, I sat
myself at one corner of the table with the fire
at my left, and at intervals, as I had finished
with a book, I rose, knocked the fire together,
and stood up to warm my feet. I continued
in this wa) at my task till nearly one o'clock,
I had got on better than I expected, and I had
only one more book to occupy me. I rose,
wound up my watch, and opened a bottle of
seltzer water, and I remember thinking to myself
that I should get to bed-by two, after all.
I set to work at the last little book. I had
been engaged upon it about half an hour, and
was fast beginning to think that my work was
drawing to a close, when, as I was actually
writing, I saw a large white hand within a
foot of my elbow. Turning my head, there
sat a figure of a somewhat large man, with his
back to the file, bending slightly over the
table and apparently examining the pile of
books that I had been at work upon. The
man's face was turned away from me, but I
saw his closely cut reddish-brown hair, his car
and shaved cheek, the the cornel
of the right eye, thestdeof the forehead, and
the large, high cheek-bone. He was dressed in
what I can only describe as a kind of ccclesias
tical habit of thick corded silk, or some such
material, close up to the throat, and a narrow
rim or edging, of about an inch broad, of
satin or velvet serving as a stand-up collar,
and fitting close to the chin. The right hand,
which at first attracted my attention, was
clasping, without any great pressure, the left
hand; both hands were in perfect repose, and
the large blue veins ol the right hand were
conspicuous. I remember thinking the hand
was like the hand of Velasque's magnlfi
cent "Dead Knight" in the National Gab
Icry. I looked at my visitbr for some
seconds, and was perfectly sure that he was
not a reality. A thousand thoughts came
crowding upon me, but not the least feeling of
alarm or even uneasiness ; curiosity and a
strong interest vue uppermost. For an
instant I felt eager to 'make a sketch of my
friend, and I looked at a tray on my right for u
pencil; then I thought, "Upstairs I haven
I fetch it?" There he rat,
and 1 was fascinated, afraid, not of his stay
ing, but lest he should go. Stopping in my
writing, I lifted my left hand from the paper,
stretched it out to the pile of books, and
moved the top one. I cannot explain why I
did this my arm passed in front of the f cure,
and it vanished. I was simply disappointed,
and nothing more. I went on with my writing
as il nothing had happened, perhaps for
another five minutes, and I had actually got
to the last few words of what I had determined
to extract, when the figure appeared
again, exalted in the 'same place and attitude
as before. I saw the hands close to my own ;
I turned my head again to examine him more
closely, and I was framing a sentence to
address to him. when I discovered that I did
not date to speak. I was afraid of the sound
of my own voice. There he sat and there sat
I. I turned my head again to my work, and
finished writing" the two or three words I still
had to. write. The paperandjmynote.irarc at
this moment before me, and exhibited not the
slightest tremor or nervousness. I could point
out the words I was writing when the phan
tom came and when he disappeared. Having
finished my task, I shut the book and threw it
on the table ; it made a slight noise as it fell
the figure vanished.
Throwing myself back in my chair, I sat for
some seconds looking at the fire with a mixture
of feeling, and I remember, wondering
whether my friend would come again, and if
he did, whether he would hide the fire from
me. Then first, there stole upon me a dread
and a suspicion, that I was beginning to lose
my nerve. I remember yawning ; then I rose
and lit my bed-room candle, took my books
into the inner library, mounted the chair as
before and replaced five of the volumes ; the
sixth I brought back and laid upon the table
where I had been writing, when the phantom
did me the honor to appear to me. By this
time I had lost all sense of uneasiness. I
blew out the fpur candles and marched off to
bed, where I slept the sleep of the just or the
guilty I know not which but slept very
This is a simple and unvarnished narrative
of facts. Explanation, theory or inference I
leave to others.

A TEN CENT PIECE.
I was at first a piece of silver taken from
the dark earth out of one of the Nevada mines;
found by an old settler, who took me with my
fellow clans to the broker's. I had a rest for
awhile. From there I was sent to the Philadelphia
mint, and was put into ha les to suffer
torments, without committing any crime. I
was then placed between rollers and stamped
into a beautiful little coin, and christened ten
centsj this was in the year 1868.
Afterwartls I was sent to the savings bank,
and was thrown from one drawer to another
without any notlcej but one day they wanted
change for a dollar and came upon me. So I
was given into the hands of an old Irishman,
who kept me in ms uirty,
pocket for a few da)sj but one day, fortunately,
he was thirsty and cave me for n class
of beer. Imagine how awkward I must have
felt, in company with so many strangers, who
were greater man myscu in mic.
Tim hat-keener looked at me with ncidect
fill eyes, and gave me to his little daughter.
I believe I was for the first time prized. This
little girl put in c in her little bank, and
thought all nlcht. in a very human manner, in
what wav to spend me. The next day she
went to town and gave me for a doll. Here I
was again in a drawer, but I was glad to get a
rest. All at once the man traded me oil for
exchange, and I was soon journeying from one
hand to another.
I was at last dropped on the sidewalk of a
dirty old street In the dust and was trampled
upon by people, who passed without seeing
me, One day there was an old beggar limping
along, and he saw me; he picked me up
brushed the dust off. handled me very carefully,
and went limning to the baker's to buy
himself some bread. I was at one time sold
for only a piece of tobacco by a nigger.
Here it is the end of the year 1885: lam
twenty vears old. and am still journeying. I
have been nearly around the mighty world,
traveling from one country to another. I
have got a hole punched through my bac'r,
and am all worn out and gray. I must say I
have had some very hard thvjes, but I nm still
worth my face, for I am not a Hawaiian dime,
