' is ' ii ' ii .11 v w i j ii in ii iii iii m hi in ii TEE PACIFIC Commercial Advertiser. Of ihe garaiian islands. A. Trip to Knunl. BT HOtrTEIf. For ten jears I had never been at a distance of more thn fife mites frcci Honolulu. A trip to Kaaai therefore an epoch not to be nlightly esteem. !. Sb!l I commit my cbrvaf ions to paper ? "Will they be acceptable to jour readers ? Perhaps they will help to fill a pace in the eoTnmrn of yoor paper. ahraM no warlike news and calamities dire" arrive before yon go to press. JTere we go, then, near the ombre hour of twilight," on board the good ehip Excel. A 1, at the Hawaiian Lloyds, and give onr traveling bag in charge of accommodating Jim. A gentle breeze weepa as gracefully oat of the harbor, the shore recedes, and with pleasure we take a long gaze at the beautiful panorama of Honolulu and the valley, till night spreads its veil gently, over the lovely picture. At midnight the dark mountains of Waia oae loom up on onr starboard bow, the wind dies away, and there we lie in proximity of the barren shore for the half of the next day. We whistle for braeze, and whistle with energy, a bracing trade wind rie9, and before next morning's grey dawn we drop anchor in the roadstead of Hanalei. Grand and dark the mountains rear their solid fronts aboye the narrow inlet of the valley, casting their gloomy shadows over the waves that leap in ceaseless monoto ny upon t!e sandy beach, sending their eilver-spray in fitful mood like brieht stars land-inward. Diy breaks in the eit; and shadows Sit away from mountain nooks and valleys like unholy spirits in fear of the chariot wheels of the sunny god; the air around the mountain tops becomes clearer, every line cf scenery more distinct in the azure blue of the young morning, and before tis is unfolJed a lovely scene of woodland mountain sides, precipices, valley, river, and the residence of the Hon. It. C. Wyllie, embowered in trees, looking down from highest moun tain crest over valley, over ocean, over the lowing teams and busy hands that work the fertile soil. The proprietor of this splendid valley, perhaps the richest among the group in fertility of soil and gor geous seenery, could choose no pleasanter spot for a residence. Free from the enpions showers that in tha interior of the valley fill with too much fre quency to be always pleasing, the spot chosen is free from damp, a pleasant breeze sweeps through the veranda, and every passing cloud and every bit of sunshine" that lights up mountain spurs or detached f pots of the luxuriant vegetation of the valley, or throws a silver tinge upon the clear waters of the winding river, lends the enchantment of a kaleido scope to the scenery. We ascend the steep mountain side by a broad road cat in the solid clay, in zigzag lines, and as we ascend, we pant, and as we stop to rest, we admire. We arrive at the residence, where wt pay cor respects to His Excellency and have the pleasure to meet with a generous welcome, such as a gentleman of the good old olden time knows so well to accord to the humblest of his visitors. The River and Plantations. Instead of taking the road to the plantation we are advise! to take the pleasanter route by way of the river. We descetid, step into a boat, and glide along the transparent waters of the placid river, whose glassy surface not & ripple disturbs, and whose coarse meanders through the valley from plantation to plan tation. We cbserve plenty of the finny tribe glide under the bow of the boat or dart away before the stroke of the oar. On our right the cane field of Captain White stretches slong the river's bru-k. I ! believe that about 25 acrrs will be ready for the mill I i in a few weeks. The soil is light, but the cine looks very fine, as Hanalei cane generally does, and the j work shows the care and attention cf the planter, j On the opposite aide lie the licJs owned by Mr. Kellet, whre Mr. Hiram is at work on a new clear ing of some 25 or 20 acres, nearly ready for plant ing. The eoil is rich, a.od loosened enough by an admixture of sand to be what 1 should judge a genial soil for cane. An impenetrable jungle of hau trees occupied the richest part cf thj land, the river bot tom land. The clearing of this will be a hard task, but there can be no doubt that Mr. Hiram possesses the right stuff to fight with the luxuriant jungle for the possession of the luxuriant soil. As we pass a little farther on the right side, the broad road shaded by stately kukui trees, leading to the estate formerly occupied by Cbas. Titcomb. E-q., and cow annexed to the broad domain of Hon. K. C. Wvllie, the old mill houses aad in the back ground the mansion in its snowy coat of white paint, meet our view, and crossing the river in a scow, the tall foreigner with broad sombrero, is the identical per son of Capt. Jue Morse, now captain of a scow and sugar pUnter. Fronting the river lies a fine clear ing of from 80 to 35 acres, and the great piles of brushwood and the hundred of stumps rooted from the ground, attest the energy and perseverance of the new planter. The soil is a rich, deep and friable brown clay, rich in organic substances, and from the large amount of silica that sparkled in a lump of clay that I picked up. the cane will undoubtedly grow strong, tall and uot liable to bend or lodge. I was pleased to observe the fine condition of the work oxen after the hard labor of breaking up so much ground; and the care that Cipt. Morse personally tetcws upon his animals warrants success to hij en terpme. Ox flesh is the corner stone of farm or plantation. In my cpinion, no farmer or planter on pay too much care to bis working animals; and where no rich pasture land is at band, or even where it is, a good field of sorghum, corn, oats or barley, should always be planted, sufficient to give to the working oxen a bite at noon and a good feed at sun down before they are turned loose into the pisture The advantages of having your animals in fine con dition are incalculable. Oxen that are alwayt in good order, are not only ready for any woik at kll times, perform not enly more work and better work, as concerns deep or good ploughing, but save much pease to the planter in drivers, and save to the lat ter a large amount of hallooing and screaming. The grouod of Capt. Morse is by this time, I should j'idite from the beginning, planted. Further op the river, oa the right, the Rev. Mr. Johnson has a fine fiild of caue and some ground planted in coffee, and from there deep into the farther recesses of the valley txtenJs the Itrge plantation cf Hon. R. C. Wyllie. The Mill and Sugar House. Wa land at the mill and meet with the moat kind and cordial reception from the er, and although we haTe already in words expressed our thanks, we taice id is opportunity 10 reiterate mem to .Messrs. McGregor, Webster, Evarts, Newman and others. From the moment when we entered the mill we en tered on a most pleasant time, enj.yed, in the genial society of those intelligent gentlemen, an oasis in the loog and dreary blank of our life. Although I shall endeavor to give your readers a description of the mill anJ sugar house, I fear it must be lame without the addition of a plan, showing the mtmt perfect arrangement, that cannot fail to strike the perception of evea a neophyte. The buildings them selves, forming a right angle. thu, """"l erected un der the personal supervision of Th." Ileuck, Eq., architect, are another instance of complete success, anl another argument that those who enter on the erection of costly and extensive buildings should avail themselves of the services of a scientific builder. On entering the buildings the beholder is struck with the airiness, the room and light which they present in contrast with moet mills and sugar houses. The structure looks light, but is of the most substantial kind You perceive no heavy and clumsy timbers and the injudicious waste of material, no often met with in similar buildings, but every brace gives the desired strength and every bolt is just there where it tellrt and warrants strength and durability. The ponderous rollers which are fed by an endlecs cane carrier, and by which carrier the expressed begasse is also discharged out.siJeof the building, itre placed in a lofty and airy room, partitioned from but in close proximity to the engine. The engine itself, bright and polished, is perhaps the finest machinery ever imported' It was manufactured by Merrlies & Tait of Glasgow, and is of splendid workmanship. Near the engine, embedded in solid masonry, lies the great boiler, and upon a raised platform with suffi cient space to walk between, are four double bottomed clarifiers cf 650 gallons each, heated by steam, and each can be filled by the powerful engine in less than 20 minutes time. Fronting the clarifiers on another oblong platform, stand a Wetzil and de Bour pan, two ingenious inventions that mark an era in the science of sugr manufacturing. On the left you descend a few broad steps to the range of open ket tles, led from the clarifiers. A second boiler closes the kettle range and is heated by the kettle range flues. Near the teach," a most valuable contriv ance is placed in the shape of a powerful crane, fiom which an immense bowl descends into the teach; by opening a valve, it swallows the whole of the con tents in one big gulp, swings round and empties the precious fluid into an elevated tank, from which pipes lead it when required into the pans. All danger of burning, to which the juice would be liable by the slow process of bailing or ladling, is avoided. Rail roads facilitate every operation of hauling. Innu merable coolers placed in a building by themselves, commencing from the corner as shown in the above figure, are out of the way and undisturbed, till after the time being fulfilled" the granulated mass enters in the centrifugals, from which the molasses is dis charged through pipes into a reservoir near the pans, pumped from there intoan elevated tank, to flow again into the pans for reboiling. One side of the cooler building is occupied by the sugar room, which receives the finished eugar and where it is packed, weighed and marked, and from the door of this room the barrels run on slidei directly into a large scow for shipment. The end of the building is a large room occupied as a cooperage, and when you listen to the perfect tact in which the hammer descends upon the barrel hoops, you will not be astonished when you have the pleasure of making the acquaint ance of our musical friend Newman. Step outside the cooperage and you see the firewood tumbling down from the mountain side several hundred feet high. Farther on you eee the neat cottage like houses occupied by the officers of the estate, and the white walls and red roofs look quite picturesquely on the wood-clad mountain side, where orange and citron vie with each other in luxuriance. On the opposite aide of the river you overlook the extensive planta tion under the charge of Mr. Alex. McGregor; so well known as a scientific and successful sugar boiler.
