158 The Polynesia jt, February 10, 1855. .
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1855.
Yesterday being a holiday, the issue of the
Polynesian has been deferred beyond the usual time
We ask the indulgence of our readers for this ii
His Majesty's Birthday
A more beautiful day than yesterday we have
seldom seen. The air was cool and pure, with
iresii breeze from the Southward. The tains of the
previous night made the roads free from dust
At half past ton o'clock His Majesty received the
congratulations of the foreign Representatives at
At 12 o clock He appeared on His beautifully
caparisoned steed, with His Staff, escorted by the
xiawaiian Cavalry, on Thomas' Square, on the plain
East of the city, to review tlw Troops which were as
sembled there. A large concourse had gathered to
witness the review, though we noticed that the
crowd was not so great as on some
ic. oome o or iu,vw persons
- The improvement in the appearance and disci
pline of the Troops was noticed by all. First came
the Cavalry a fine company of about 40 members
la their new uniform. The corps went through
a Tariety of evolutions, which showed very plainly
that they were under the discipline of a master
hand, who has infused into the company & life and
order which reflects credit on all. We have seen
many well drilled volunteer cavalry companies in
the U. S., and must say that our Hawaiian cavalry
win compare favorably with the best of them. The
charge by the cavalry on the infantry company,
w'lich was repeated once or twice during the re
view, was really exciting, and showed that if occa
sion was offered the Scottish Greys" might find
their rivals in'a quarter where least expected.
Next came the Artillery Corps numbering about
80, also in new uniforms, with four pieces of can
non, under the able command of CapK Bingham.
After these, were the Hawaiian Infantry, con
sisting of about 3G0 soldiers, and lastly the Hawa
iian Guards, under the command of Capt. Brown,
numbering about 40, officers and soldiers.
- There were about 550 soldiers at the review, and
all the Companies showed a decided advance in their
manoeuvres over any thing ever seen here before.
We trust that the improved order that has been
imparted to each corps will be maintained. A well
organized and efficient Military reflects credit to a
Government second only to a popular educational
system. They are equally the bulwarks and de
fence of a nAtion, and should be equally fostered
The soiree in the evening was as brilliant a gath
ering as our city has ever witnessed. The compa
ny was select, and the hour was spent much to the
enjoyment of all present. His Majesty appeared
in fine health, and we trust that he may long be
permitted to witness the return of this, his natal
anniversary, till a good old age crowns his happy
reign, and a nation full of love and reverence de
light to call him their Sovereign and King.
The Kalama Safe.
This steamer, which was expected from Kauai
on the 4th, did not return to Honolulu till the 9th
inst., when she arrived, all safe, and with a full
freight and a large number of passengers.
The cause of her detention was a series of severe
gales from Thursday till Saturday of last week, by
which she was weather-bound in Hanalei harbor,
and from which it was impossible for her to sail
till Sunday morning.
During the heaviest of the squalls, it was with
the greatest dimculty Bhe was preserved from go
ing ashore, and it required not only two heavy an
chors, but the aid of her steam to keep her from
dragging. But by the admirable management of
Capt. Jones, and the able nd efficient co-operation
of his officers and crew, she passed safely through
the gales, with only the loss of an anchor-stock,
which was speedily remedied by a temporary sub
stitute. Her safe arrival on Friday morning relieved the
anxieties which had begun to be experienced
Honolulu for her safety, and she will proceed
Monday to the windward, and to Kauai again
the Monday following.

called Edith, not yet 3 years old, and a bull of the

have come safe to hand. A bull calf was added to
to the list on the 6th of January which we presume
will receive the name of Vancouver, from the ship
on board which it was calved on the passage out.
The blood of. these animals is of the purest kind,
and their pedigree is on record for the assurance of
those who have an interest in them. They were

Great credit is due to the gentlemen who select
ed them, and provided for their comfort on the voy

and the officers of that ship, for the fine condition
in which they have been received. Nor would we
omit, according merited praise, the Cape Cod boy
on board the Vancouver who had special charge of
this stock all the voyage out ; he performed his du
ty in a manner highly creditable to him, and we
ope he will not be forgotten, as a humble, but ver-
ry useful agent in the matter. '

to the parties who ordered them.

I For Urn Polynesian-1
Ma. Editob : A recent visit and residence of more
.than a month in the District of Kona, Hawaii, induces
me through your columns to offer a few notes upon a
section of country which, I fancy, has hitherto been
very much overlooked, and not sufficiently commented
upon by those who have given lengthened and descrip
tive accounts of the Sandwich Islands. Its distance from
the Capitol, and the trying inconvenience attending the
visit to and from this place, is perhaps the strongest
reason why so little U known and so little is offered the
public respecting one of the choicest spots on the, Ha
waiian group. The district of country particularly re
ferred to is that section r belt of land running from
Kailua to Kealakeakua Bay. In point of fertility, ex
tent and variety of its productions, its general adapta
bility to all kinds of growth, the beauty and picturesque-
ness of the country, and the unsurpassed healthfulness
of the climate, make it one of the most desirable places
of residence which the Luanda can furnish; and its
prospects as a wealthy planting district quite equal, if
not superior, to the most lauded districts on the Islands.
Little as yet has been done in the planting way; but
those who have undertaken the growth of coffee, have,
even wiih very limited means and on a very small scale,
fairly tested tiiO experiment and satisfactorily shown, that
were the business undertaken with a proper spirit and
managed with a liberal capital, in a few years a hand
some return would be realized.' Tie fact is generally
conceded to be true, that the coffee grown in the District
of Kona is superior to any other island coffee, as is
shown by the estimation in which it is held and the su
perior price which it commands in market, as is also
shown by the premium? awarded it by the Hawaiian
Agricultural Society. With respect to its suitableness
for the growth of sugar cane, the same may be said that
can be urged in favor of the most fertile lands of Maui
and Kauai. The situation of these lands, lying as they
do to the leeward of the island, and consequently free
from the influence of the trade winds, which for the
most part are violent, render them particularly favora
ble for the growth of fruit of all kinds. I am persua
ded that fruits whieh properly belong to the Temperate
zone, sucn as apples, pears, piums, peaches, sc., would
flourish here and produce abundantly. Some spirited
attention has already been shown in the growth of or
anges, and should we live a few years we may expect to
nna fkona even more ceicDraica lor uie abundance and
excellence of its oranges than its coffee.
The peculiar manner in which the lands are divided
running as they do in parallel tracts from the sea to thp
dense forests of the elevated mountain regions, gives to
the possessor not only every variety of climate, but aim
every variety of soil suitable to the diversities of growth
dependent upon temperature. The sterile and almost
busi-K)rbidding appearance of the lands borderine unon thi
sea, wun mue or no cultivation, produce abundantly of
mo ddcsi owtvi puutujes iuu weions. ana were the ex
periment Curly tried, judging as I do from binds simi
larly situated in other parts of the world, grapes
of a superior quality and flavor might be grown. Little
or no use is made of them at present, except here and
there a potato or melon patch may be seen, or more
commonly a wandering herd of goats. Higher up the
mountain side, we come to the bread fruit growth, and
this region seems clearly marked out by the abundance
and luxuriance of the vegetation for the tropical fruits.
Still higher up an open and almost level country ranges
back for a considerable distance, and seems best suited
to the culture of the coffee and the sugar cane. Higher
still, and most sensibly marked by a low range of tem
perature and increased moisture, is a section of country
thickly overgrown with a heavy fern extending to the
borders of the forest. This land is peculiarly well suited
for the growth of Iriah potatoes, and those who have
planted them have been richly rewarded, not only by
the quantity, but also by the superior quality of the es
culent. This region, with the one next below it, would
prove best conditioned . for the production of apples,
pears, plums and peaches, as alo indeed all the fruits
of the Temperate Zone.
The whole country is well adapted for the raising of
8tocK oi an ainas, dui me range oi pasturage is neces
sarily limited, and the distance, to say nothing of the
great cos anu inconvenience oi getting them to market,
will ever prevent this section of Hawaii from offering
any successful competition with other parts or islands
nearer the Capital. Nor even is it desirable that it
should, for if the lands be properly applied with refer
ence to their productiveness, there will never be any
surplus stock allowed to accumulate. During my stay
upon the upland country, I was curious to ascertain the
variations of temperature from day to day, with the
view ot comparing tnem witn similar observations at
the sea shore. At an elevation of 1500 feet from the
sea, during a period of ten days the thermometer indi
cated an average range of H . The lowest tempera-
ture is maritea aooui o o cioca in the morning, occa
sioned by the land breeze, which blows down from the
tops of the mountain At 7 o'clock, A. M., it usually
stands at 64 , and in two hours after it has arisen to
74 ; then for the remainder of the day there may be
a engnt increase oi a lew degrees. At this elevation
there is a delightful, bracing and invigorating atmos
phere, which makes one feel that it is a pleasure to live
ana to breatne. tne is enabled to walk, ride, or even
work without suffering much inconvenience from the
heat of the sun. Woolen clothing may be worn durintr
the whole year, and at night the luxury of a pair of
blankets Decomes quite indispensable. Vn movine down
to the sea shore to share the hospitalities of my friend,
Capt. Cumings, whose house is beautifully situated on
the very shores of Kealakeakua Bay, and in the verv
centre of a thick coacoanut grove, I found the tempera
ture oi tnat spot to oe aeugntmiiy pleasant and uniform.
During ten days the thermometer almost unvarvinirlv
stood at 76 A. M. : at noon, 78 to 80 : at 8 P. M..
8. During this period the extreme ranee did not
exceed 6 . For uniformity and mildness of climate, I
doubt if the world can furnish another spot more re
markable than Kealakeakua Bay in these particulars.
Here I may mention as a matter of local news, that
whilst waiting for the sailing of the ship Coriolanus,
Capt Gwynne, who most kindly tendered m a passage,
the Bay was visited by one of the most furious and de
structive southerly gales which has ever been known in
those parts. For four days the storm raged with rreat
fuT. The rain fell in torrents, accompanied with vivid
lightening and loud peals of thunder. The sea rolled
into the bay in such shells and at such a height, that
when they broke upoii the reef !t made the ground
tremble, and with a noise like thunder. Considerable
damage has been sustained by the inhabtaints many
houses had to be abandoned, and many stone walls were
leveled to the ground. , The most serious loss has been
sustained by Capt. Cumings .His wharf which hadjlen
built in a most substantial manner, has been entirely
carried away, and the walls of a new dwelling house,
partly completed, have been so much injured, that the
entire wall will have to be taken down. His loss mav
be fairly estimated at five or six hundred dollars. In
addition to this loss, he had the misfortune to lose one
of his Chinamen, who, whilst engaged in removing some
cordwood from the bank, was caught by a sea which
arose to an unprecedented height and swept him into a
lime kiln where he was drowned. As proof of the un
exampled fury of the gale, many cocoanut trees were
dashed down and there are many places on the hill
sides where the soil has been washed awav from the
rocks which doubtless had lain there undisturbed for
ages. I wo whale ships, the Conolaruis and the Cincin
nati, were anchored in the Bay and verv handsomelv
outrode the storm. After so severe a test. I think that
in future Kealakeakua Bay may be considered a place
of safe and secure anchorage. A TRAVELER.

IfaroLCLr, Feb., 1855.
Mr. Editor :
During our stay at Peel's Island, a tidal pheno
mena occurred, the particulars of which I give, as
they may prove ot interest to you.
Ihe occurrence took place on the morning of the
23d of Dec.,, and commenced with a sudden rise of
tide to the height of fifteen feet above high water
mark. It then immediately receded, leaving the
reefs entirely .bare, and Ten Fathom Hole, in which
we were anchored, was turned into- a complete
whirlpool. The tide .coo tinned to rise and fall dur
ing the night, at intervals of fifteen minutes, grad
ually lessening in force until evening, when it near
ly subsided to its usual level. On the evening of
the 25th the waters were again agitated, and rose
to the height of twelve feet, and so continued dar
ing the eight. On the morning of the 26th the
tides beeamer regular: -
The force of the reflux was such that the "What
Cheer" was dragged from her anchorage, and was
carried out of Ten Fathom Hole at the rate of 8
miles an hour, just clearing, the rocks which lay
only some fifteen feet on each side of her, and
barely escaping destruction. ,
The houses of the residents were more or Ices
injured, and some entirely swept away.
