SATURDAY, SEPT. 17.
It is generally the case that when two nations
become mutually tired of war, when their treas
uries beoeme depleted, and there is little prospect
of an adequate reward fur further strife, they
hoist the flag of truce, and settle the prelimina
ries of a peace. By mutual concessions, they ef
fect a compromise, as they ought to have done in
the. first place, and conclude the conflict. The
avowed purpose of a war is seldom fully accom
plished. It is often the case that a protracted
struggle ends' in exhaustion to both parties, and
the final result is barren of gain to either side.
In the recent Italian conflict, a conflict which
has been attended with an immense sacrifice of
life, the bereavement of many thousands of fam
ilies, and the expense of some hundred million of
dollars, the ultimate success of the French has no
doubt fallen far short of their original object.
They have failed to expel the Austrians from
Italy, and restore Italy to herself as was prom
ised in the outset. But they have nevertheless
effected some changes, and accomplished perhaps
as much as under the circumstances it was rea
sonable to expect of them. In the brief space of
two months, the Austrian possessions south of
the Alps have been reduced one-half. The fertile
territory of Lombardy which has heretofore con
tributed its yearly quota to the treasury of
Vienna, now rejoices in the rule of an Italian
King. The Austrian influence south of the Po,
so powerful before, in the States of Modena,
Parma and Tuscany, has been annihilated. Sar
dinia has greatly increased in population, and
almost doubled her territory ; and Austria, pent -
up within the narrow limits of Venitia, and pro
tected by the massive walls of Verona and Man
tua, sullenly surveys the contracted boundaries
of her one remaining Italian possession, and
" bides her time" for revenge. The States of
Modena, Parma and Tuscany, have now a fiiir
opportunity to strengthen their newly acquired
liberty by the establishment of free and liberal
institutions, and if they fail to develop more
fully their resources, and to take higher stand as
independent and progressive nations, the cause of
the failure, unless other, now unforeseen influ
ences, intervene, must lie with themselves alone.
Yet the terms of peace are far from satisfactory
to the Sardinians or to the Italian people, and
the signs of the times seem to show that the ad
justment will not be of permanent duration. It
was considered doubtful whether Garibaldi would
lay down his arms. All Sardinia was indignant
that Napoleon should make peace at such a time.
in opposition to the wishes of his ally, and leaving
the Sardinian kingdom with a frontier more de
fenceless than before. Unfriendly feelings were
said to exist between Napoleon and Victor Eman
uel. The Pope had been burnt in effigy at
Milan ; Florence was in a disturbed state ; and
some of the Parisian papers had come out plainly
in opposition to the terms of peace, and called
for the expulsion of the petty Italian princes who
have heretofore acted as confederates of Austria
who, perhaps, when they return to power, will
again endeavor to play into the hands of their
Probably, in making a peace, Napoleon was
actuated more by motives of self interest than of
concern for the welfare of his allies. In the
course of the war he had ably sustained the great
military reputation of France. While two of
his armies had with remarkable promptitude
scaled the Alps, a third had marched through
Leghorn and Florence, a fourth was ready to
land on the shores of the Adriatic, and there re
mained material enough in France to double
them all at speedy notice. His fleet, at a week's
warning, had spread itself through the Mediter
ranean and Adriatic. The Emperor had proved
the wealth and devotion of the French people.
He had called for five hundred millions of francs,
and the money was subscribed in a day. He
asked for one hundred and twenty-five millions,
and five times the amount was urged upon him.
In Italy his armies had pressed the Austrians
rapidly back over the plains of Sardinia and
LotSbardy, through a career of glorious victory
for the French and disastrous defeat to the Aus
trians, to their strongholds in Venitia. The
French arms had reflected on tho names of
Magenta, Malegnano and Solferino a luster
which the dnst of ages will not efface from the
scroll of history ; and now, after accomplishing
all this, the Emperor says it was prudent to
be satisfied with what he had got and rest con
tented with what he had done. Hitherto he had
driven the enemy before, him in the open field ;
now he was to cope with the lion at bay ; and if
the victories had been so hardly won before, the
result was at least doubtful when his untiring
opponents had thrown themselves behind the
strong walls and bristling fortresses before them.
If he prosecuted the war there was a possibility
that his glory would be eclipsed in defeat;
whereas, if he made peace, he should preserve
unstained his own military reputation and the
prowess of France, and might secure a part of
the objects for which he had plunged into the
war. Besides all this, by leaving Austria still
an important power in Northern Italy, Sardinia,
with her unfortified frontier, would continue, as
it were, a dependency of France, looking to her
for protection from the encroachments of her
Doubtless all these things were considered in
the reasoning that decided the Emperor for peace.
Indeed he intimated as much in his speech reply
ing to the addresses of the Presidents of the great
bodies of the State, after his return to Paris.
One of the most important facts in relation to
the recent pacification was, that the peace was
concluded without the intervention of either of
the other great powers ; indeed, it is said to have
been proposed by Louis Napoleon, and hurried on
to execution, for the express purpose of giving
.tjie other powers no opportunity to proffer their
advice. Heretofore tho territorial statu quo of
Italy was regulated by the decrees of the five
powers at the Congresses of Vienna, Laybacb and
Verona; and the arrangement was claimed and
acknowledged by all to be immutable, except by
the action and consent of the parties that made
it. . Now in the recent Italian treaty, France and
Austria have taken upon themselves the exclu
sive responsibility of regulating Italian matters.
They have not recognized the long acknowledged
right of 'other nations to a share in the arrange
ment of Italian difficulties ; and by their treaty,
thus ignoring the three other leading powers,
they have virtually proclaimed to the world that,
they are able to throw off the authority and dis
pense with the formalities of a consultation with
All these things, taken in connection x 'lh the
fact that France continues to concentrate 1 ' -able
fleets at Cherbourg and Brest, and tLi v

five hours sail of Great Britain, will eompel the
latter government to maintain her ' army and
navy upon a war footing, and will impose a heavy
tax upon the people.
One thing is certain the "war is ended only
temporarily. An armistice, and perhaps a peace
treaty, have been concluded but all Italy is in
censed with it. Louis Napoleon has returned to
France, but all France is dissatisfied with bis re
turn and with his work. They looked for more,
and they are disappointed ; and unless the French
Kin ner or can devise some immediate way to
divert the disappointment of not only his own
people, but of all Europe, and give full employ
ment to his huge army, it is not predicting too
much that his peace treaty may cost him his
throne. If he finds himself compelled to go to
war to save his position, the most trivial dispute
with England would serve to kindle a war flame
that would lighten both sides of the British Chan
nel. In short, the political aspect of Europe, as
we gather from the most reliable journals, is
more warlike now than before the signing of the
armistice of Villafranca.
Circait Cemrt Third Jadiclal District.
The annual term of the Circuit Court for the
island of Hawaii, commenced at Waimea on the
6th instant. Judge li, of the Supreme Court,
presided, assisted by Circuit Judges Sheldon and
Wight. This being the first session of the Court
for this side of the island under the new law, a
large concourse of people assembled from the ad
joining districts. There were, however, but three
jury cases for trial, and the business of the Court,
with the exception of some chamber matters, was
finished on the 7th.
The law providing for a session of the Court at
Waimea, as well as at II1I0, gives great satisfac
tion, as it saves the people of one half the large
island of Hawaii the trouble and expense of a
ong and tiresome journey to Hilo.
The King vs. John Cavanagh ; adultery; ap

The King vs. Kahelemauna, Kapumakaloa,
and Ilooili, indicted for bullock stealing. This
was an appeal rr ,vu the decision of Judge Wight,
before whom thd". ndants were adjudged guilty
under the Act of 1858. The evidence for the
prosecution was very clear and conclusive, and
that for the defense was equally so in the oppo
site direction, showing that there must have been
some hard swearing on one or the other side.
The jury, after about five hours absence, returned
into Court and stated that they were unable to
agree, standing eight for acquittal to four for
conviction. Having been further instructed by
the presiding judge, after half an hour's delibera
tion they returned a verdict of not guilty, ten to
two. It. K. Chamberlayne, Esq., for the Crown,

trial at Chambers before Judge Sheldon, plaintiff
was awarded damages amounting to $30, from
which an appeal was taken to a jury trial. Ver

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Hilo Bridges. We are glad to learn that the
bridge over Wailuka river at Hilo, which was com
menced in July last, has been completed. On the 3d
instant it was opened for the first time to the public,
amid the general rejoicings of the district. Up
wards of five hundred horses, to say nothing bf thou
sands of pedestrians, crossed it on the first day. The
necessity for a bridge across the Wailuka has lonz
been very great ; and its final accomplishment will
prove a great public convenience, at tfi asms timo
that it will put a stop to the annual loss of life in
crossing the stream that has made the river so noted.
It will be remembered that the Waihiku bridge is
built after a peculiar plan, originating with Mr.
Wood, our efficient Superintendent of Public Works.
It is a suspension bridge, with the roadway resting
upon the chains, and not, as is usual, suspended
beneath them. This plan was deemed the best on
several accounts, and we con
gratulate that gentleman on the
successful completion of what he
undertook as an experiment. We
insert again the diagram of it
which we printed some weeks
ago. The only deviation from
the diagram is, that the bracer
are carried from the top-rail to
the chains, instead of to the floor
ing of the bridge as represented.
The bridge is perfectly strong,
firm and stiff, and promises to
last as long as iron and wood can
resist the approaches of decay.
The fi-ur chains upon which it is
supported are calculated to resist
each a strain of 22 tons, and
the bracing and cross-bracing is
bo perfect, that it is believed no
weight, and no wind will cause
the bridge to sway. , The entire
span of the bridge is 196 feet ;
and the chains at their lowest
point are 14 feet above high
water mark. The water under
the bridge is 48 feet deep. The
cost of the structure was 92,800.
I Another bridge is now in pro
gress of construction across the
Waiole the creek which cuts off
communication by way of the
beach, between the northern and
southern ends of the town. It is a
wood truss bridge of 84 feet span,
and will be completed in a few
weeks, at a cost of $550, a por
tion of which is raised by private
subscriptions among the resi
dents. The construction of so strong
and durable a bridge as that
across the Wailuka is said to be,
at so small an expense, estab
lishes at once the feasibility and propriety of erecting
bridges in many other parts of the islands, in places
where they would be found a public benefit The
want of bridges has been a great drawback to some
of oar best districts. The Hilo district especially,
one of our best sugar-growing regions, with its deep
gulches and swift torrents, has suffered muoh from
this deficiency. And if a strong, permanent bridge,
with a span of almost 200 feet, can be thrown across
such a stream as the Wailuka, at a cost only $2,800,
we think the next Legislature cannot spend a part of
the public money better than by providing for a few
more improvements of the same sort, in those sec
tions of the islands which most require them..
. - The Lyceum Lecture. Judge Robertson delivered
an able lecture in the Bethel on Thursday evening
last, upon the subject of the British Parliament. The
lecture was devoted to an account of the origin of
that body, of its gradual developement until it attain
ed its present high and honorable position, and of its
general character and system that body, a charac
teristic feature of which is, that " Us democracy ia
the most aristocratic in the world, and its aristocracy
the most democrat" ; One fact stated by the lec

A Road Acxoas Hawaii. It is estimated, from
surveys recently made by Mr. WCkea, a gentleman '
residing in Waimea; Hawaii, that a good cart road
may be constructed at comparatively little expense,
from Hilo to Waimea, around the southern base of
Mauna Kea, .between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.s
Hitherto there has been no communication between
Waimea and Hilo by means of wheeled vehicles. on
account of the great number of deep gulches that cut
np the road in the Hilo and Hamakua districts. The
proposed road, if constructed, will be shorter than
the other, smoother and better in many respects.
We understand that parties have olered to construct
it in such a way as to be passible for carts, for the
sum of $4000. Should the plan be adopted it will
doubtless be advisable to open a communication be
tween this road and the old Dr. Judd road, which,
starting near Kailua, terminates in the plain be
tween the mountain thus affording a direct high
way betwoen Hilo and Kona, and perhaps opening a
shorter and better route from Kona to Waimea.
Strayed ob Stolen A few frogs which were
turned loose in the Kalo patcfies of Nuuanu valley
upwards of a year ago, for the purpose of propaga
ting their species and destroying insects. It is fear
ed that the insects have destroyed the m or p ssibly
they have lost each other in the labyrinth of water
lots, and perished of loneliness and ennui. Perhaps
they thought the weather was too warm, and con
cluded to bury themselves until the approach of win
ter, in which case they have a long time to wait yet ;
or perhaps they found their new home so delightful
and the climate so enchanting that they successively
exploded in a burst of ecstasy. At all events they
have disappeared from' the valley. Their last trump
hjs sounded, they have passed away, " unknelled
and uncoffined," but not unknown. The Royal Ha
waiian Agricultural Society are the chief mourners,
and the whole community no doubt would follow
them to their grave if they knew where it was.

Axotuer Esteemed Citizen Gone. Death has been
unusually busy during the past summer, in taking
away some of our most active townsmen. We record
ith deep regret the death of Mr. Henry A. Poor,
which occurred at his residence in Richard street
yesterday. Mr. Poor was a native of Boston, where
his father now resides and is known as one of the
most successful merchants of that place. Tie resided
in San Francisco in 1850, and subsequently also in
Oregon. In 1854 he came to Honolulu, where he
has since resided, and has been long and well known
as a member of the firm of C. A. & II. F. Poor. In
185G, he married the daughter of the late Wm.
French, who, with two children, survives him.
Young, energetic, and gifted with no ordinary tal
ents, and with a kindly disposition that endeared
him to all his acquaintances, his death makes a void
in our midst which will not readily be filled.
Death or aHioii Chief. John W. Pitt Kinau,
a young Hawaiian Chief, died at Kohala, Hawaii, on
Saturday last, the 10th inst, of consumption, at the
age of 18 years. He was one of the highest and
wealthiest chiefs upon the islands. In his veins
flowed the blood of a long line of Hawaiian Princes.
Ruth, the present Governess of Hawaii, was his
mother, and consequently he was a grandson of Gov
ernor Kekuanaoa of this island. His grandfather on
the paternal side was Billy Pitt," a chief of high
repute in years gone by. It will be remembered that
William landed on the island of Hawaii, in January
last, on the very day when the present lava eruption
burst forth from Mauna Loa;-and it was believed by
large proportion of the native population of the
bland, that Pele had thrown forth the lava stream in
special honor of his arrival.
A Hawaiian " Cupper." Our coasting fleefis
to receive an accession in the shape of a curious look
ing, but comely little sloop, belonging to Mr. J. n.
Morse, that has been lying at the Esplanada the last
few days. She is forty feet long on deck, and has a
breadth of beam of fifteen feet ten inches. Her hold
is four feet five inches deep, of 35 tons measurement.

The Flour Mill. This institution is doing a great
business the present season, and it is estimated that
no less than 25,000 bushels of wheat will pass through
its hoppers, as the result of this years harvest which
is nearly double the amount of 1858. The wheat,
however, is said to be inferior in quality to that of
last year, but somehow Mr. Hughson manages to
turnout a quality of flour which defies competition
from any source. The press of business is such that
the plan has been adopted of running the mill until
nine o'clock in the evening, as well- as during the
A Query roa the Knowing Ones. There is an
old question as to whether a jackknife which has been
at different times renovated by the odlitions of a

knife that it was at first. And upon the same princi
ple arises the question whether the old schooner John
Young, which has been rebuilt by !kfessrs Burns and
Emmes, and wnich has hardly a piece of timber or a
foot of planking that was in her before, continues in
fact to be the same vessel. She is of the same model.

A Bust Place. The esplanade has presented a
scene of bustle and activity the last week. The work
of discharging the Jiaduga and reloading the Ores
tes, the daily arrival and departure of island schoon
ers, and the several new buildings, have all contrib
uted to make stirring times. The building of Messrs.
A. Harris & Co. upon the esplanade ; and a large
cooperage establishment, is now going up for Mr.
Burdick upon Fort Street. "Present indications are,
that the esplanade will soon be. covered with build

Hawaiian Animals. While the human popula
tion of the Hawaiian group has been graduly de
creasing, the brute population seems to have as
rouUrl- inereaaed. At the time when Capt Cook
discovered the islands, dogs, swine, fowls, miccand i
a few varieties of wild birds were the only represen
tatives of the brute creation. Now their name is
legion." Cattle are plentiful upon all the large is
lands. On Northern Hawaii, particularly, they
mam wild through the forests, and are destroyed
annually, in great numbers, merely for the sake of
the hide. Burdens which were once borne upon the.
shoulders of men are now consigned to the backs of
hotses, donkeys, and mules, which far out-number
their masters ; and horses have begun to be used, to
some extent at least, as an article of food, by the
natives. There are now about two horses to every
man upon the islands. Hogs have multiplied so
that they now run wild on all the large islands, and
are hunted with dogs and guns by the sportsmen.
Wild goats are abundant in some localities. In the
vicinity of Mauna Kea, on Hawaii, and also in the
interior of Kauai, dogs roam, sometimes in large
packs, through the woods, subsisting upon such hogs
and calves as they can kill, and upon the farmers'
sheep. Wild cats are numerous on some of the is
lands living moBtly upon the mice which are indi
genous to the group. Of birds we have comparative
ly a small variety. Among the useful kinds, that
pick up a living in our forests, are the goose, the
duck the snipe, the plover, the turxey ana me
pigeon ; the lost two have been imported by foreign
ers, and the climate seems to agree with them capi
tally. On all the islands they have rapidly multi
plied. J he neighborhood of Waimea, Hawaii, is par
ticularly a favorite place of the pigeons. Iney gen
erally fly there in large flocks, returning alwayst
night to their regular roosts intone or two little
mountain valleys, far removed from the settlement
of man. Great numbers congregate in these places,
and it is said that a visit to them, as a matter of
curiosity, is well worth the trouble of a short journey
and a night in camp.
The project of introducing deer upon the islands.
has as yet not been attended with success. The three
deer which still remain at Kahuku, on this island,
seem to live very comfortably, but they do not in
crease and multiply as they ought to. We trust that
other importations will be made with a more success
ful result ; for there seems to be no reason why our
mountains and highlands should not be as well stock
ed with deer as any mountains and highlands in the
world. A few terrapin, turned loose together in
some favorable locality, would no doubt thrive, and
in the course of time make the group a second Galli
pagos, and the Alpaca, or Peruvian sheep, too, would
perhaps do well amid the higher mountain regions,
and yield in its silky fleece, a new store of wealth.
There is plenty of room yet, for the enterprise of the
Royal Hawaiian Agricultural Society.
Those Elephants Again. In reference to the
question whether the elephants will be allowed to
bring their trunks ashore, duty free, a friend suggests
that in case no4 permit is granted they can easily
smuggle them in "because, you know, elephants
have a great capacity for hide " The same gentle
man, (not our chronometer friend,) asked us what
order of architecture the elephants head most resem
bled. We professed our inability to answer him.
"Why, the Tusk-an," said he, displaying his own
ivory in a Satanic leer. We fainted.

Mr. Editor : I learn that the Chinese sugar
planters ac Paukaa (Samsing) are letting their mo
lasses run to waste, thinking it not worth the con
tainers to put it in. The natives are after it with a
rush, and for purposes not pleasant for a temperate
man to think of. What will your merchants, coopers
and freighters think of that ? and the little scape
graces about your wharves with empty straws and
occupation gone ? one's heart is grieved to . think of
This is not the first time the same thing has oc
curred at these islands, and it is suggestive ot anx
ious forbodings for the future prosperity of our grow
ing sugar interests. To save that important article.
molasses, and throw it into the channels of trade, is
a matter that concerns every business -man and me
chanic in Honolulu. Cannot some plan be suggested
to guard against such waste of property, in "times
like these, when prices are so low as not to pay for
"containers?" Make it into rum," the proper
candidates for Dashaway clubs will say. I am not
exactly a believer in the divine origin of rum, or that
an infernal, serpentine, steaming, fizzling, fuming
still is the only palladium to prosperous sugar grow
ing. But if business men of spare capital will not
furnish the needy planter with containers and take
his molasses at the plantation, and at prices some
thing like satisfactory, I fear the clamor for the
privilege of manufacturing it into rum will eventu
ally prove too strong for its enemies to resist.
. That the manufacture of rum would prove profita
ble to the planter here, as it does elsewhere, there is
no doubt. With our present differential duties on
imported liquors it could be made, with suitable leg
islation, a mine of wealth to our planters, and they
are fully aware of it. Hence the difficulty to stay
the rum tide, and we may as well look the beast in
the face first as last. So long as people will consume,
so long will they find suppliers, and since, per force,
we must legislate upon the subject, it makes little dif
ference whether we go around it to the left or to the
right The efforts on the part of the treaty-making
powers to flood this country with grog, have met with
little favor among honest, disinterested men. Misery
and poverty are the only blessings it ever confers upon
its consumers. All men do not think so. Some will
make money out of it. The enterprising 'and not
over-conscientious on matters of total abstinence arc
the ones to do it, and it is to be presumed there are
many such among us. The efficacy of temperance
legislation while hampered with our present treaties,
is Certainly doubtful. Legislation seems to make
poor headway against bad liquor and bad example
which has gone abroad in the land, nursing a taste
for the "stuff" until the poorest has not only learned
to drink, but to manufacture it too. One would
think gun barrels were put to poor work in shooting
men, but when put to manufacturing blue-ruin, phi
lanthropists may well shudder at the uses arts and
sciences may come to. If rum distilling is to be
legalized on these islnnds, it is a satisfaction to know
that a better article will be furnished to topers than
is imported or at present manufactured. One might
feel a little revenged if an act legalizing the distilling
and traffio were put in such a Bhape as virtually to
prohibit further imports of liquors, about which 20
years of bullying and diplomatic torn-foolery have
been sacrificed in securing it to parties interested,
say nothing of the national degradation growing im
mediately out of it. Hilo.

Mr. Editor : The appearance of the Aurora Bo re
al ia in tropical latitudes is so unusual, that all the
facts may well be made known for scientific enquiry.
Tour statement, which I just read, that the Aurora,
was seen in Honolulu, enabled me at once to account
for the phenomenon I observed here a few nights
since. At 10 P. M. I noticed a bright, unsteady.
crimson glow upon the sky, extending from N. E. to
N., and about 35 deg. of altitude. It resembled the
reflection of a great conflagration at twenty or thirty
r . ...... .
miies aisiance. noi thinking of Auroral lights in
these latitudes, and for want of any better hypothe
sis', I attributed it to heavy fires on the other side of
the mountain, such as often ravage th country. I
was puzzled however by the tact that the clouds which
rested on the mountain, and were scattered around
and beyond it, did not give the tlishtest reflection of
the supposed fire. I should say, abo, that the light
was far too pare anl rich a crimsca to have been
eaosad by a fire. Very traly yours.

none will be present, bnt that Sardinia, if pleased
with the terms agreed upon, will acquiesce in the

it is affirmed that Sardinia has signed nothing but
the Armistice, and is consequently in a nominal state
of war with Austria.

A correspondent of the Utica Herald says that N.
Parks, of Mohawk village, has invented, and patent

cable being of itself a perfect battery, consequently,
the longer the wire the greater the power in working

about taking it in hand with a view of giving it a
Americas Board or Missions. The Missionary
Herald states that the receipts of the American Board
in April, May, and June, have been less than during
the corresponding three months of any previous years
since 1839. The average annual amount for these
months, during the previous three years, was more
