THURSDAY, NOV. 3.
"With great regret we record the intelligence
of the fall and destruction of the bridge across
the "NVailuku river, at Ililo. At the same time,
all must feel grateful that, of so many valuable
and endeared lives, placed in extreme peril; all
were saved. This bridge, so important not only
to the people of Ililo, but to the whole Northern
and Eastern part of the island of Hawaii, whose
completion and opening we announced but a few
weeks since, was a wooden structure resting on
four chains, two on each side, stretched from
bank to bank, across the river, a distance of about
two hundred feet. The elevation of the bridge
varied from fourteen to eight feet above the
water. The facts, as we learn them from an eye
witness, are these.
A party of several of the principal resident
foreigners and visitors at Ililo had been across
the river, making a picnic at the beautiful emi
nence," known as Puueo, the property of Mr.
Pitman, and were returning to the town, in the
latter part of the afternoon of the 21st October.
The party was composed of the following persons,
all mounted on horseback : Hon. S. L. Austin
and Mrs. Austin, three sons and a daughter of
Rev. D. B. Lyman of Ililo, R. II. Dana, Jr. Esq.
of Boston, Capt. Henry Burdett of the Boston
ehip Radura and Mrs. Burdett, Capt. Brown of
the bark Belle and Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Gulick of
Honolulu, (sister of Mrs. Austin), Miss Pratt of
Honolulu (sister of Mrs. Charles Brewer), Mrs
Hines, Mrs. Ashley, Capt. Blackmer, and J. II.
Coney, Esq. Sheriff of Ililo.
Four of the party, Mr. Coney, Capt. Black
mer, Mrs. Hines and Mrs. Ashley, had crossed
the bridge before any others had entered upon it,
and were waiting on the opposite bank, where
they had a plain but painful view of the whole
scene. The rest of the party were crossing the
bridge, at a walk, mostly in single file, and so
distributed as to reach nearly across it, the fore
most being nearly at the South end of the bridge
while the rearmost were just entering upon it.
At this moment, a loud report was heard of the
mapping of a chain, instantly another, and then
crash, and the bridge tipped, broke and fell.
Then ensued a scene that none but an eye witness
can fully appreciate, the plunging and struggling
of horses, the struggling of men and women,
fragments of the railing and bridge, with deep
water under them, and added to these, the shrill
wail and cry of the natives-, which spread instant
ly over the town, carrying dismay to the hearts
The danger of 'drowning, especially with so
many good swimmers in the party and the in
stant aid of the natives, whose element is the
water, was slight compared with the peril arising
from the horses and the broken timbers. The
natives ruBhed to the spot, and soon were
in the water, rendering valuable aid. We have
not learned the names of many who did good
service, but we may mention that of a respect
able native citizen, Kipi, the Tax collector of the
district, who was riding near, and stripped and
plunged in, and was among the foremost in aid
and counsel. - r
Of the party crossing the bridge, Mr. Austin was
foremost, and, when he heard the crack, he spur
red his horse and succeeded in reaching the bank,
juBt as the bridge fell. His wife was near him,
but did not reach the bank, but Tell back on tne
bridge with her horse. Mr.. Austin finding his
wife not across, went down the bridge and, with
the aid of a native who had reached her, succeed
ed in extricating her from hcrorse, and getting
her up to the bank, slightly bruised but nowise
injured. The hors- fell over into the wreck and
was drowned, probably getting entangled in the
timber At the other end of the bridge, the
last ot tuo party were yapt. Brown and his wife.'
They had just entered on the it, and succeed
ed in getting off without going into the water.
The neit waa Miss Emma "W. Lyman, a girl of
ten years of age. She was mounted on a mule,
and that animal, with the quick instinct of dan
ger for which the - mule is -famed, at the first
sound turned right about and sprang back to the
land, passing the horses of several of the party,
w . w m sJb o , t
I and carrying tne young lady sale on, out wun
out an instant to spare. In confirmation of this
instinct of the mule, the persons present say that
no horse turned, and wben the riders of some
tried to turn them, they found it difficult to move
them. The next was Capt. Burdett. He was at a
distance from hia wife, and seized the upper rail
of the bridge and held to it by one arm, his horse
going down into the wreck. Ue held thereuntil
he could climb over to get below, where he
reached Mrs. Burdett just as Bhe was brought to
' The rest of the party, being near the middle of
' bridge, were all precipitated into the water,
- side that broke , and fell in. Fora
tir wtr-tiop, ong the broken tLa-;
ttti cioct critical,'
Of thor until a'native swam to her and carried
her off on his back. Miss Pratt also fell with her
horse and managed to keeplier seat, but the
horse, a -spirited animal, kicked and plunged so
badly that Mr. Frederick Lyman went to her,
took her from the horse and swam with her to a
piece of the bridge and sustained her there until
the natives could reach her. Mrs. Henry Burdett
fell among the horses and wreck of the bridge,
and wentunder water, and was for a time in ex
treme peril, from which she was rescued by Mr.
David Lyman, who extricated her and sustained
her until the natives came to the spot, when she
was carried to the shore unhurt, though a good
deal exhausted. Mr. Dana was in the middle of
the bridge where it broke, and went into the
river with his horse, keeping his seat in the sad
dle, but both becoming involved in the wreck oi
the bridge, Mr. Dana got a blow on the foot
which fractured a bone and bruised him some
what. Leaving his horse, he swam to a part of the
bridge, but that breaking down he swam to the
upper rail and came over that by hand to the
Bhore, which he was the last, to reach. Mr.
Lyman's third Bon, a youth of the Punahou school,
was near Mr. Dana, and likewise involved in the
broken timbers, from which he extricated him
self with some difficulty.
Thus all this party, to whom, death or serious
injury was eo imminent, were saved. They all
felt it to be a great deliverance, and on the Sun
day following they united in a request to the of
ficiating clergyman, Rev. Mr. Coan, to return
thanks fdr them in the public service.
We give no opinion as to the cause of this dis
aster, if the architect for his own satisfaction,
or the public for theirs, desire an investigation,
we presume it can be had. It is plain that a
bridge which is to serve as the only means of
transporting merchandise, produce and animals,
from a large'district to a commercial port, and
which breaks down under the weight of some
eight or ten horses wjth their riders without
any luggage, pissing it on a walk, and well dis
tributed along its entire length, it is plain that
such a bridge was not strong enough for its pur
pose; but whether this arose from some unknown
flaw in the chain, or other cause subsequent to
and independent of the original design and ex
ecution, or, on the other hand, from some mistake
in the principle of its construction, or want of
strength in the materials, we do not pretend to
know. There has been a great deal of discus
sion about the bridge at Ililo, since it was com
pleted and opened. All that we know certainly
is that the bridge sagged in the middle, making
a declension of about five feet from a straight
line. Thus the wood structure gave no support
to itself, but left its support and that of every
thing upon it to the chains alone, and not only
so, but by reason of the declension in the middle,
the support foil chiefly upon a small part of
But our concern is now chiefly with the future.
We trust that those in authority will tie diligent
to see that te bridge is immediately rebuilt, and
not allow a commercial town to bo without fit
communication with its back country a day long
er than is absolutely necessary. The people of
Honolulu can form some idea of the importaneo
of this bridge to Ililo, if they will imagine that a
deep river separated the lower part of this city
both from the Xuuanu Valley and from the
region about Punahou and Waikiki, and that the
river could not be forded. The necessity for the
bridge has been recognized by all parts of tho
The Attempted luaurrcrtiwu on Hawaii.
The people of Kau, the most, sou tTiern district
! of Hawaii, and the remotest from the seat of gov-
' eminent, have always been noted as unruly
! characters, and holding " the powers that be" in
j rather slight consideration. Our readers will
I remember that we alluded some weeks ago to an
j insurrectionary movemeut on that island, in
j which the inhabitants of Kau resisted the tax ae
jsessors. Our attentive correspondent, in Kona
I furnishes some interesting facts in regard to thl
J affair, and of the rebellious character of the Kau
i people, who apjiear to retain more of the chival
; ry of their ancestors than their enlightened
brethren on the other islands. .Many stories are
told of their rebellions against the exactions of
the chiefs in old times. On one occasion during
the life of John Adams Kuakini, when Governor
of Hawaii, they chased one of his tax collectors
all the way into Kona, he running for his life.
Coming to Kuilua, they went to the Governor,
and boldly told him not to send any more 6uch
men to Kau or they should kill them. The
story goes that Kuakini was amused at their
temerity, and sent them off satisfied.
The recent disturbances in that district on the
occasion of the assessment of taxes under the new
! law, which have resulted in the conviction and
sentence of some twenty of the ringleaders, was
I rather a more serious affair than was supposed.
! Though no doubt the people were exasperated by
the injudicious conduct of the Assessors in putting
on imperious airs, disdaining to talk Hawaiian,
and searching closely in their enumeration, yet
they had fully made up their minds, long before,
to resist the enforcement of the law. Two weeks
j before the Assessors commenced their labors, the
district had been thoroughly canvassed by the
ringleaders, and the people persuaded, and in
some instances intimidated, by threats of house
burn in cr. to ioin in the rebellion. And the in-
j tcntion was, to all intents and purposes, to raise
! a rebellion against the government of the present
King, to throw off all allegiance, and to pro
claim Kinau as King ! Such was the programme,
as boldly proclaimed, and their lack of a leader
of chief blood was the only thing that prevented
the affair from assuming serious proportions, and
involving the loss of life. -
As it was, they were prepared to do mischief,
and but for the prudent conduct of Laanui, the
Deputy Sheriff, blood would no doubt have been
shed. In the height of the riot, while several
hundred people were assembled around with
sticks, knives and poi-beaters, Mr. Laanui re
ceived an order from the District Justice, to pro
ceed to the spot, order the crowd to disperse and
arrest the ring-leaders, suggesting at the same
time that he take all the constables for the pur
pose. Had he done so, a collision would inevit
ably have resulted with some broken heads and a
defeat of the police. The Sheriff, however, with
creditable judgment went alone to the spot, and
rode in amongst the crowd unarmed. - They
seemed surprised at his temerity, and after listen
ing to the order to disperse, the ring-leaders were
induced to talk the matter over quietly, and the
people went home. - The next day the arrests
were made, and the trial and conviction of the
ring-leaders took place at Hilo, at the last term
of the court. -
The story goes, that a sort of injustice has
been the result of the trial, though it is not clear
what truth there may be in it. It is mid that
those actively concerned in the riot, were fined
only $40 each on account of their having plead
guilty to tho indictment, while those who merely
went to look on, and who pleaded " not guilty"
were sentenced to three years each. The Kua
ainas, though livingremote from the seat of gov
ernment, will however learn by the-re 'H of this'
- ttempt to of pose its auCority, - i -n cf.

leaping a fence, the animal bringing up with great

Fbom Baker's Islaxd. We publish among our
memoranda some interesting ship news from this is
lvnd. We learn also from Mr. Judd, that the wharf,
erected for shipping guano over the surf and break
ers, has been completed. It is 400 feet long by 16
feet wide and has eighteen pair of shears. The plat
form is fourteen feet above high water mark. The
rail-track extends the whole length, and the loaded
cars, run down to the shutes outside of the breakers,
where the bags are slid down into launches moored
below. Everything is in complete readiness for
loadiug ships with guauo. The Alary Bradford
was about commencing to load when the Josephine

arrived on Tuesday from Melbourne, bringing papers
to Sept. o, which, however, con-vi very little news

object. Who would ever have dreamed that this
wonderful conjurer would have peeped in on Hono
lulu ? Yet so it is ; and lovers of the marvelous
will not fail to go and witness a performance seldom
offered to them.
Moorincj Boat The long boat of the British ship
Forest Monarch, burnt at sea, which was brought
to this port by the Jenny Ford, and bought by Capt.
Holdsworth, was on Friday last launched from the
workshop of Messrs Johnson & Foster," who have
succeeded in fitting her for a substantial and service
able mooring boat. She has been thoroughly
strengthenel and repaired, having solid knees and
floor timbers added to her. She is also sheathed and
lined all over with plank, copper fastened and sheath
ed outside with yellow metal. She is fitted with
a large and strong stern davit with a thick iron
sheave, for the purpose of weighing an anchor, and
strong bitts forward. She appears to be well adapt
ed for the purpose intended.
Koloa. This port on the leward side of Kauai, is
one of the very best and cheapest recruiting places
for whalers in this group. Ships can now be suppli
ed there with water without any difficulty. The
water has been brought down to the beach, and by
means of hose, it is conducted to the casks brought
along side the wharf, at a very low charge. Vessels
can obtain any quantity of wood without delay, other
than the time necessary to put it aboard. Potatoes,
and recruits of all kinds are reported to be abundant
and cheap. 480 barrels of water were taken by
the Fabius, in less than 10 hours. The summer
has been very dry and warm, but the sugar cane
looks well, and promises an average yield. On ac
count of the drought, they will probably be a little
later this season in commencing to grind the new
J5T Capt. Cannon desires us to state that while
his ship, Jireh Perry, in February last, was lying in
the Middle Harbor, Ascension, two natives secreted
themselves on board and were takeu to sea, without
his knowledge or that of his officers. One of these
natives reported himself as brother-in-law or near
relative of a high chief, or " nanakin" of the tribe.
This man died Oct. 19th, just before the ship arrived
in this port. The other remains on board and will
be sent back by the earliest opportunity. Friend.
Tue Alleghanians. Gave their last concert on
Wednesday evening, and expect soon to leave fir
China. During their stay here, our citizens have
been treated to a series of entertainments, which it is
not often their privilege to enjoy. In their journey
ings round the world, we wish them that success
which their talents so justly entitle them to.
Death of a Captain. On Thursday last the flags
of a great many ships and houses were hoisted at
half mast, on account of the death of Captain Molde,
formerly master of the whaling brig Ant ilia'. He
had not enjoyed good health for some time past, and
remained on shore this seasou on that account
From Jarvis Island. We are indebted to Mr. S.
G. Wilder for the marine report from Jarvis island,
lie requests us to state that the visits of whalers there
are always agreeable and that lettei-9 and papers
directed to his care for them will be delivered, and
their reports forwarded to Honolulu by first vessel.
Japan Currency. We would call the attention of
shipmasters to the letter of our correspondent from Ja
pan. The currency there promises, aa we predicted
a year ago that it would, to be the source of more in
convenience than anything else. ' Indeed there is no
port in the Pacific, where greater loss in exchange
must be submitted to in procuring supplies.
New Islands. Capt. Smith, of the whaleship E.
F. Mason, reports having discovered in latitude 2928
N. E. long. 12S12, a large island, and two smaller
islands lying to the EN. E. of the larger, and about
25 miles in extent.
Removed. Messrs. Harvey & Co., we notice, have
just removed their Paint shop to the spacious build
ing near Lewers joinery. As heretofore, they are
on hand to execute all jobs in their line, with that
dispatch nd taste for which they are so well known.
Refitting. The Hawaian schooner Liholiho is
now undergoing thorough repair, and being com
pletely refitted with new rigging fore and aft, she
will resume her place on the Hilo route in about ten
days. . , f .; -. -
We have been shown a very clever sketch of
the broken bridge at Hilo, taken soon after the fall,
by Mr. J. D. Mills. It gives a good idea of the ac- -cident,
as well as the surrounding locality and

at Koolau. on the 22d ult. The cause assigned -
his passion for a mistress. Tragic consummations w
illicit love would appear to be multiplying of late, and
perhaps becoming a mania, three instances invol

upon Oahu, almost in one neighborhood. This kill-

wehould regret to ee prevailing here, and suggest
that it would be as well not to give the cases un
necessary publicity, there being fools weaK enougn

Hard Digging. The steam dredge now at work
off the Esplanade, has for the last fortnight past, had
very hard work to perform, having to cut through
solid coral and lava, severely testing her strength.
She has to dig twenty feet, in order to obtain the re
quired depth. Sometimes the dipper brings up solid
pieces weighing six or eight cwt., that It has fairly
hewn off. Last week the dipper brought up some in
teresting relics, among which was the handle of an
ancient war club, having the appearance of being in
the water for a very long time.
jr- Our cotemporary is very smart sometimes.
In last Saturday's issue, in its shipping for the port
of Honolulu, it gives a long string of coasters, as
arriving on the 27th, all of which had arrived on
the 20-1 and 2d. The "terrapin'Ms evidently be
ginning to be brought into active service again.
We should'nt have noticed the smartness of the
terrapin coach, only for boast made in the previous
number that its " Marine Report is second to none
for accuracy," 4e.
The Dashawats. It is gratifying to witness the
onward and upward progress of this Society. Two
additional addresses by their own members have
been delivered since our last issue. Mr; Irwin's was
sound, sensible, and especially suggestive to parents.
Mrf Wescott's was poetical and racy. The next will
be delivered by Mr. H. A. P. Carter. Our narrow
limits confine us to a brief notice. Friend.
Irwin & Co., Accountants. It gives us pleasure
to speak of this firm, and the satisfaction with which
they execute all orders. The long experience of Mr.
Irwin in this line of business, and of Mr. Ingols as
book keeper in many of our leading house?, is a
criterion that anything entrusted to their care, will
be properly attended to. '
Sudden Death. A German named William Pentz,
formerly employed at the Merchants Exchange, on
leaving Smith & Pickering's Saloon in Fort street,
on Monday evening, where he had just eaten ice
cream, was seized with a fit and fell on the side-walk.
During the night be died.
Worth Mentioning. Yesterday morning, James
Ward, a sailor boarding at the National Hotel, found
a heavy and valuable gold hunting watch, and chain.
With praiseworthy honesty, the man tcok it to the
Police Station, where in a short time it was claimed
by its owner.
Under-way. Messrs. Brewer & Co., on Saturday
last, opened to the public their new store in the
market building. A liberal repast, was provided on
thejoccasion, at which a crowd of their friends were
present with hearty alohas for the success of the firm
in its new and central stand.
Honolulu vs. Hanalei. Dr. Hoffman has brought
to us a noble papaya grown in his garden, which is
nearly equal to that received from Ilaaalei. It
measures 22 inches in circumference.

. Hakodadi, Aug. 3, 1859.
Editor P. C. Advertiser Sir : I left Honolulu
January 4th, in the good ship Empire, Capt. Rus
sell, and after a cruise of eighty-f-ur days, dropped
anchor in this port on the 29th of March, on the tail
end of a typhoon. I send herewith a list of the
whalers who have touched here from March 11th to
July 23d inclusive.
Hakodadi is a queer place, and I would advise no
one to come here to reside. Ships in want of supplies
or repairs can get all they want through the Vice
Commercial Agent of the Cnited States, who does all
the business here. Potatoes are plenty and cheap.
The great annoyance to foreigners is the matter of
exchange. By reference to the American Treaty with
Japan you will see that there is a clause which gives
to the consuls, agents, &c, and their families and
employes, the right to exchange foreign money for
Japanese currency, even weight. Well, their gold
coin is mostly silver, plated with gold. A kobang,
an oblong piece, weighing with American gold S7, is
actually worth in Mexican silver about $2 34, so
th.tthe foreigner who brings his foreign coin to
change gets swiudled at a wholesale rate. The money
changing is done at the "Bazaar." In exchange for
a Mexican dollar yesterday, I got three "itsibus"
anil nominally 135 iron cash," though they cheated
me 88 per cent on the latter by giving .me short
strings. On complaining to a government official, he
ordered it to be rectified, saying that the short strings
were designed for sailors. A few days ago, it was
given out that a new coinage was about to be issued,
exactly half the weight of a Mexican dollar, and that
two of them would be worth 135 iron "cash" aiore
than the old rates of exchange. ' This, : however,
turned out but another swindle on the part of the
To-night, the Americans have a meeting, when It
will be formally resolved to insist upon the dollar
pang at 5988 "cash" and receiving their coin at
itsrue value, according to the actual meaning of the
treaty. But I am inclined to think that nothing
short of the smell of gunpowder will cause these
cheating rascally Japanese to abate the exchange
nuisance, and deal honestly with strangers.
