Ma. Editor : In looking over Home of the Advtr
titer t for October. I find an article signed B."
calling the attention of our Legislature at U next
term, to abject of vital importance, which he bopea
wit! not be overlooked; and with him I hope that
there will be some provision made for the equitable
distribution of water on lands which require irriga
tion. He wonders why this has not been attended to
before, when half of the population of the islands are
"Ibgether by the ears as often as the dry eason re
turns. If B. C. and I), take all the water, dry tea
son and wit, belonging to other, when they have not
been accustomed to take it, they hare good reason to
be by the ears. It is an old saying, and a true one,
that the little fifth are eaten up by the big ones.
B." thinks that the reason why nothing has been
done, cannot be because the Legislature has not bad
time to attend to it. nor that it watt necessity un
known to them, (and it cannot be because it is
point beyond the limits of law,). when it is a matter
so seriously atfecting the interests of nearly the whole
of the population of the islands, who are entirely
dependent on irrigition for all teir living. That is
true. But if the Representatives should authorize
any one to take old rights aw'y from others, and
thus make the old streams run trry, they are not in
their sober senses. Self-mtere t. to which we all I
leMi, may desire tbem to no euat.. But in doing so.
they would take the rights of others away, and de
prive them of their living. So' far as respects the
regulation of water, that is well enough. But when
some take what don't belong to them, mujt we not
call it thieving? I hope the Lej.-Mature will pats a
law, so that new lands cannot deprive old lands of
Again B." says, that the sources of our agricul
tural wealth have bhif:ed ground, kalo has found a
rival in sugar cane, and it would be folly to attempt
to run the carriage on one wheel when there is a
balance point between the two. I do not see that
' B." has any right to attach another wheel to the
carriage and turn over to riva's the rights of others
I cannot twe that the natives can go and pull a lot of
cane a they can kalo and make it into poi as they
can kalo. uor can I learn from the oldest native, that
it will take any less water now to bring a loi or patch
of kalo to maturity than it did before this cane rival
came. The native should have his ancient water
rights, and then if there is any left, let cane rivals
Notwithstanding there has been abundance of rain
on the mountains, there has been great complaint
about water in this vicinity, beciuoe cane growers
took so much for their cane fields, that the Wailuku
creek has been dry or nearly so. There hate been
numbers of kalo patches next to the eei. dry, when
at the same time there were thousands upon thou
sinds of gallons running to waste into the sanJ hills
from the cane fields.
B." also speaks of a new piece of land close by.
that has not taken its share of water. So far as I
can learn from the oldest natives in the plane, the
piece referred to never had a tthare. only what fell on
to it from the rain clouds. But cow the new rival.

Fort Scmtek as it h. No point connected with
the defense of Charleston is of more interest to the
public, not only of our owu State, but of the entire
Confederacy, than Fort Sumter. Associated, as it

been laid in ruins ! its fur proportions, its noble
walls, its threatening tiers of guis. all demolished
by the rut hies demon of war ! Yet there the etately
old pile stands, proud and defiant as in her palmiest
days crushed but not conquered; wrecked but not
reduced every foot of her massive sides written all
oter with the tributes of the foe. to the patriotism,
skill and courage of those who Lave been her de
fenders. It is not our purpose to enter into a descriptive
detail of the present condition of the fort, since it
would be manifestly imprudent to state what is not
known to the enemy, but there are a few facts which
may be interesting and proper to mention. There is
nothing in the entire range of fact a 'or fuicy to which
the ruins of Sumter can be likened, that would con

the once magnificent shape, from which stand out, in
almost sickening aspect, fragments of guns, gun car

sponges, all bound and mixed together with the iron,

A number of American Christians, of different

State has expressed the opinion that u inner, by his
speech, has " performed a great public service." and
has arranged for sending copies to the United States
diplomatic and commercial representatives abroad.

Golt Mikes in Canada. There is a great rush
to the gold mines in the county of Beauce, about
thirty-five miles from Quebec. There are about a
thousand persons at the "diggings," which are said
to be exceedingly rich. The gold district extends
over a distance of fifty miles, part of it running
through the suburbs of Quebec. Some nuggets,
weighing nearly an ounce of pure gold, have been
found, and it is stated that lumps much larger in
size have been washed out. This has been found on
i the Chaudiere. The Toronto Globe says there can be
j no doubt that gold exists in considerable quantities
in the region, but there is reason to believe that, like
the deposits of North Carolina, large capital will be
needed to dig and ci ush the matrix in which it lies,
and the returns will not be more ample than these of
ordinary industrial enterprises.

It is a singular coincidence that Napoleon III.

QrEEN Victoria's phcdence. The London cor
respondent of the New York Sun says :
I was told the other day an anecdote of the queen.
which illustrates her good sense and real desire to
promote the welfare of her subjects. She had agreed
to have her photograph taken for the gratification of
such of her subjects as might desire to possess the
counterfeit presentment of their ruler. She present
ed herself in a black silk, without a particle of orna
ment. The photographer ventured to suggest that
she should send for some jewelry.
" No." said the queen, "this photograph is to go
among my people, and I wish to do all I caa to
It is such little anecdotes as these that have secur
ed the queen a high place in the regard of the people.

An Episcopal Downfall The unhappy Bishop of
Rochester, in England, whose tribulations we before
described, has a most unpleasant time of it. It will
be recollected that he was the Bishop who committed
the stupidity of chiding one of his curates for raising
sheep, for the reason that it was a vulgar occupation,
and for consorting with farmers, because they were
low people not at all fit, in the Bishop's eyes, for
companionship with men of the gown and bands.
The tide, however, seems to have suddenly turned,
throwing this conceited prelate fl-tt upon his back.
The sheep have been too much for the dignified shep
herd. In the last English mail we read that at all
the ordinaries and public dinuers'Mhe Bishop and
the Clergy " was toast which nobody would honor
that his superciliousness had provoked all manner
of unpleasant speeches from the indignant sheep of
the Bishop a spiritual fold an I that hnally the snub
bings he had to endure became so intolerable that be
felt himself compelled to "apologize to the farmers,
and to give the assurance that he never intended to
speak disparagingly of them " This Bishop has
therefore learned, in a hard way, the useful lesson
that the work of a Christian pastor lies in and among
his people, and that the more he enters into their
ways of thought, the better he can guide and counsel
them. It docs not promote Christian fellowship to
stand aloof like the Phaiisee.
The Troubles in North Carolina. The Char
lotte (N. C.) Bulletin of September 10th contains
the following significant paragraphs :
We sincerely regret to learn that there are a large
number of Conservatives, i. e., submissionists to Lin
coln's Tule, who prefer fighting their friends and
brothers, and even their fathers, with the deserters
from the army, to meeting Yankees on the battle
field, now banded together to the number of about
two hundred at Fralleys," twenty miles above
Statesville, resisting the constituted authorities.
Yesterday, as we have beeu informed, a severe
battle was tought by Lieutenant Roberts, with forty
Confederate soldiers at that point, resulting in the
capture of four, and the killing of two or three
traitors, who have been sent to Trap Hill for rein
forcements. Col. Sharp, of the Seventy-first North
Carolina Militia, having been called to sustain the
Confederate authorities is sending forward the mili
tia to the support of Lieutenant Roberts, who expected
a pitched battle yesterday.
The Raleigh Register of September 10th says :
" The Twenty first regiment North Carolina troops
left this city on Monday for some point west of here.
Their mission, we presume, is to arrest deserters,
who, in organized bauds, are in some counties bidding
defiance to the law. Another regiment, we hear, is
soon to be brought to this State on the same errand.
These men, who ought to be in place with either
Bragg or Lee to help them to secure a victory over
the accursed Yankee foe (one real victory on either
line would, we believe, secure us peace on the basis
of independence,) are sent away from the army to
hunt aud catch men who have been encouraged to
desert. Such is the fruit of the lessons of bad
men and tories, of peace-on-auy-tcrms men and
