WHOLE Nn.JOL 13 f i i ii ii ii ii - f THE FACiriC Commercial Advertiser. Itni'iil JSlcotclie?-; the Irairaiian Jslandn. A T"rli to It mini, (Coi.liiclol.) , ' BT HOLSTEIS. Kealia, the Estate of E. Krull, Esq., Is without doubt one of the finest dairy establish ments on these islands. The cattle range ia very extensive, stretching for miles over plain and valley. Streams afford clear and wholesome water in abucd nnce, the neighboring mountains and grove9 of tim ber pleasant shelter, the plains plentiful feed for the numerons cattle that roam over those rich pastures, whose grass is short but very nutritious. The dwell ing house is situated on the edge of a fine grove of trees. Near it is a large garden, where every kind cf vegetable grows in abundance, from the German pole bean to the full sized beet or early parsley. Our host led us through the grove, whose shadowy walks winding through the luxuriant growth con ducted as to a rustic summer house, that, situated on a mountain spur, affords one of the Ooest views over the lesser bills and wood-clad valleys that stretch before as like a picturesque panorama closed in by tbe dark blue of the distant ocean. This is one of the finest sceneries on the island, and will leave its pleasant impress on the memory of every visitor who Vmm 1aad vaa,;aM f i r9 . . r v i..- i l : i : i, : v .1 vui luugiiigs "tic piT-paici III U UUU9C CUCMCICU JJ a grove of ancient koa trees. The moon was in her fall and shed her glorious light over the furrounding landscape. Before as stretched the wood-clad valley. Long we stood that evening in the rose-embowered verandah feeding our eyes on the glories of the night. Silence, deep as the grave, around us. No sound but the monotonous chirp of the soli;ary ctickct cillitig to its solitary neighbor. Not a voice of life disturbed tbe stillness of the night. And as we gazed in silence over the valley, we could not but think on the' past, on our own far distant beautiful home of childhood, on the past of the lovely picture before us, and the hundreds of homes that in days of yore nestled among those valleys over which the hand of Arrael had spread the silence of the tomb. Alts, the past! Alas, tbe present! What shall be the future? Shall that ancient race once more revive, once more repeople those desolate places over which the shadowy spirits of the past Sit in silent sorrow, tr is their doom extinction? Who shall answer and who can lift the veil that hides the coming century ? The next morning's rising pun was ushered in by the warbling of numerous birds in the surrounding grove, God's own little missionaries, sending nature's bymn of praise on high. There is something no sin gularly sweet and soothing in the songs of bird-'. Who has not felt it? and who can wonder that groves were the primitive temples in which humanity praised the Eternal. We paid an early visit to the dairy, where our host, an early riser, had been long before us. Tbe bright pans, the rich cream, the heaps of golden butter and the sweet odors of the cool and to the highest extent of cleanliness kept dairy repaid ua well for our visit. From there we proceeded to the milking pen. There were from 100 to loO cows in the enclosure and a corresponding number of ctlvesin a large room or stall. Some ten or twelve natives were employed in milking, and what was most astonishing was the perfect silence that reigned. Not an angry word, not a loud curse or the sound of a kick or whip, not a bellow from either cow or calf, except the gentle lowing when the cow met its young, was heard. There was no running of animals to and fro, no driving with sticks, no la8oeing. The animals stood or laid down tran quilly chewing their cud till their turn to be milked came. Mr. K. assured us that at the time of his taking possession of the stock, the Animals were wild and nnbroken. Gentleness and kind treatment had wrought this change. For the purpose of milking, a large thed is bailt on cue side of the enclosure con taining a number of open stalls. At the head of each stall Hands a solid post upholding the plate. And at a distance of a foot or IS inches stands a light post in a socket, the upper end woiking iu a socket of the plate in this manner, a g opening to receive enclosing gently to the bars, Mr. Iv.'s establishment is without doubt tbe best conducted of the kind that I have 6cen for many years, and well worth a visit of those that are interested in similar business. We next visited tbe buildings and enclos ure where Mr. K. annually butchers a large number of fattened cattle. We found iu this establishment the same order and cleanliness which is so conspicu ous in the whole establishment. The beef packed here is as favorably known in the market as the but ter that comes from tbe dairy. We bid our host a hearty good-bye with many thanks fur his kind hos pitality, and pursued our journey to Iihue. Ou leav ing we took a last look at the beautiful grove. Those who have visited this estate will surety remember it, and will feel grieved to learn that its glory, the old wide spreading koas, are dying with every day under tbe strokes not of tbe woodman's axe, but of the insidious and deadly attacks of the small ants. This pest is taking an onward march cf destruction, and the day is near when cot a koa tree shall remain on the Island of Kauai. Alas, the blight that has fallen on tbe race not even spares the greeu-wood tree ! The roa 1 to Lihue leads again through a very broken country where numerous streams gush through the gullie. Near noon we made a hi.lt on the banks of the Lihue river under the shade of some fine kukut trees. From here to Lihue the grass loses its greea hue and the barren slopes, denuded of vegetation, showing their ansightly red surfaces, give a rather dreary aspect to the landscape around Lihue. We arrived at an early hour at the cottage of Mr. CI a us, an old Honolulu resident, and were most hospitably received. The Plantation of Lihue las tested largely the patience and enterprise of its owner. Located in a part of the island where times of great drought occur, the proprietors were induced to lead tbe water through channels many miles in length to their fields, and though the undertaking has been great and no doubt very expensive, tbe results have been most beneficial and will repay the labor and expenses. Tbe part of the cane field that we visited, and where irrigation had been introduced, looks promising. Tbe canea were of good size and joint, and promise a fair crop from a most unpromis ing soiL 1 could not withstand the temptation to purloin a lump of this singular soil to bring with me ine tiecK oi me cow, iuui y . the bead. Every cow I walks I its place, puts her head JjLthrough I jj receives her calf, and is milked. Llj to Honolulu. The red appearance is easily accounted for by the most extraordinary amount of oxides of iron. Although in itself this element enters but paringiy into the composition of plants, when rightly handled it has no injurious influences upon the soil, r-s its decomposition gives place to a number of the thost useful combinations with organic and inorganic substances. 1 observed a number of organic sub stances interlarded with the soil. At present there can be no lack of those elements, but au injudicious course of firming will soon exhaust them. No soil, in my opinion, requires a more conscientious course of under ploughing of the trash in as green a state as possible or a coarse of green manuring, to retain and augment not only the organic elements but also silic ites and lime, the supply cf both of which is very limited, than the Boil of Lihue. A process of liming would perhaps be of great advantage. Whenever an earth brought in contact with an acid produces on effervesceuce, we may be certain that it contains a sufficiency of lime. The Lihue soil produces no effervescence. But liming put on the land consider ed as a manure, without under-ploughing of the trash, might for a few years, as long as there remain ed a sufficiency of organic matter in the soil, produce good effects, but the activity would be a factitious one, that would be followed by sterility. The difference in the color of the unbroken soil from the cultivated is very distinct. Tbe latter is much darker and shows that tillage has brought forth already its beneficial changes, in changing the protoxide of iron into a peroxide. If lime is not wanting, such soil will grow more productive, as I know from experience. In the virgin earth more or less of this iron is united with sulphur, forming a mineral of a bright yellow color, iron pyrites or sul pburet of iron. Tillage decomposes these' and the oxygen combines with the sulphur, forming sulphuric acid. If lime is tiesent or applied it will again com bine with the sulphuric acid forming gypsum or sulphate of iime, the best of all compounds of sul- ! phur and most valuable for the soil of Lihue. j L ... I. V. V. W t.ll .n . ,. auuiuci timutc vuuuis uv nivalis ui l k 1 1 i v uuj iuui3- ture. While the protoxide of iron is converted into . . . ..... ftp peroxide, water is decomposed, and while the oxygen changes the iron, the hydrogen combines at once with nitrogen in the atmosphere, always present in soils, and forms ammonia. Such are a few of the changes which are produced by tillage in those soils, and every succeeding year adds to their productive ness if rightly managed. If the soil of Lihue be comes sterile it is the fault of bad management and that alone. Next morning while on our roa 1 to Koloa, we paid, our respects to Hon. Judge Widemann. Here we remained a few pleasant hours aud were shown the manufactory of oil from kukui nuts. There was a time when this oil made a considerable item in our expoits. To Mr. W belongs the honor to I ive re- j vived this once extiuct article of home manufacture, Where so many nuts grow wild all over the group, it i ningulur that this industry has remained so very limited. At distance of a mile from Mr. W. stands a very neat church. The houses here are generally about a mile apirt. This is the City of Miles." Ou our road to Kolox we passed through some fine tracts of land. The road presents a new feature in being supplied with regular milestones. There can be no doubt that the roads on Kauai are the best kept of any I have seen. Bridges are put up where want ed and kept iu repair. Eirly in the afternoon we arrived at The Plantations of Koloa. Here we enjoyed the frank and kind hospitality of Mr. Iiurbank, the efficient manager of this, the old est sugar plantation on tbe islands. The fields are very exteuMve, the cane looks well and the crop com ing in promises well. The plantations are at great distances from the mill, and are still farther extend ed. The soil has a more favorable aspect than that of Lihue and rains are said to fall more plentiful. We had tbe pleasure to meet Mr. Thomas Marshall, the present efficient Sheriff ot Kauai. His numerous friends will be pleased to learn that Mr. M. looks healthy and well, which is iu a good measure owing to much exercise. Mr. M. having become a most expert equestriau on account of his many official journeys, delights in this health-giving exercise and its pleasant incidents. We also made the acquaintance of the Messrs. Hol Iister, who have introduced the culture and manu facture of tnpioci, with the most decided succesi. Their field of tapioci looks extremely well, and we understau 1 that they intend to enlarge the manufac ture by applying machinery. Mr. II very kindly regaled us with two samples of home manufacture. The first a wine, if it may be called so, made from the orange; the latter a kind of cider made from the guava. The first is in appearance-and taste some thing like Rhenish wine, the latter a very pleasant ciderlike and cooling beverage. Both articles would uot ouly find a ready market at Honolulu, but if once known a ready sale abroad, and add largely in the culture of orange orchards or in the gathering of I guavas to the limited industry of our native popula tion. But O humbug ! Hawaiian legislative wisdom ! A profitless expense to the people, a dead weight to every enterprise and home industry, a curse to the country ! The houses at Koloa are numerous, but are as irregularly built and at great distances from each other, as if some giant had scattered them broadcast over the ground. Kauai is undoubtedly one ot the best jewels in the Hawaiian crown, rich in productive soil and richer still in water power. Thousands of hands might be employed in manufactories, thou sands till the grateful soil, a thousand hearthstones send their curling smoke aloft, but, alas ! where are the people ? On our three days journey we never met a single traveler ou the lonely road. Kauai, the beautiful, the fertile, the desolate ! May soon a better day dawn over this island, was our sincere wish in taking leave of Kauai and its kind and hos pitable inhabitants. t'UCXCi BOOS. ACHC. YorStS SHEONG.
