SATURDAY, MAY 2.
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
ST it Mr. Vwss' aJ?ertixerjt in to-Jay's pa
per, cf bargains in tbe Upholstery line.
C5T The UnJ of Wabiawa, car Waimea, Kauai,
waa at auction by C. 3. Bartow on Saturday
last, for S4.50D cash, tbe purcUaer bing tbe pres-
ent occupant, Judge McBryde. Tbe land is large,
and valuable as a grazing ranch."
Cocoa kit for California. We noticed by tbe
D. C. .Murray, an exp ortatii of growing cocoa-
puts in boxes. In some parts cf California oranges
Eucceed tery well, but we very rauch doubt if any
thing can be done there with coaanuts.
The Kilavea. Our single steamer is laid up for
repairs, and consequently her wan is beginning to be
felt, as a prompt means of coinmtnicatiou among tbe
islands. We learn that her repairs will occupy some
two weeks, and that sho will resane her regular trips
about Monday the 18th instant. '
The Cratfr of Kilavea. Ve learn from lr.
Wythe, who returned from a visi to Hawaii on Thur
sday last, that the crater is umsually active, the
lava having risen high up on the banks of the lake,
and was constantly throwing upoumerous tall jets
a grand sight, worth traveling far to see.
The Amateurs at Buffua's Hall on Saturday'
evening last, for the benefit of tie Temperance Band
of Hope, bad a full bouse, and succeeded in con
vincing everybody that we bae young theatrical
talent amongst ns that, with culure and experience,
might turn out first-cl.iis. .
Pitloa Salt Works. We learn that the Hon. Mr
J. I. lowsett has purchased one-third interest in the
above property, and will probably conclude a bargain
for the other two-thirds, thus becoming the sole
owner. ltli his facilities of coasting vessels. Mr.
Dowsett will probably be able to make the estate pay
better than could any one else.
Compromised. We le.rn that the "salt case,"
between the lion. J. I. Dowsett and the administra
tors of the estate of the late King Kanifehameha V.,
in which a Terdict for the plaintiff for 8,000 was
rendered in January last, and which waa up again
this term on exceptions has teen compromised by
the defendants paying $4,000.
" Aliiolaxi HotsE," is the name by which the
new Government house is to be hereafter known, by
command of His Majesty. Aliiolani " was one of
the titles given to Kauichameha V. at his birth, and
id now appropriately applied to the building which
was projected under his reign. In admiring its fine
proportions and artistic finish, it is well to remember
that the credit is principally due to Mr. Robert Lish
man, the architect and builder.
Aw v's 1oi.cs. By n letter from Nawiliwili we
learn that on the night of Mouday last an old native
named Limaloa, living in that neighborhood, was
beaten by sumo (at present unknown) parties so
badly that his life is despaired of. It appears that
the old man has a growing crop of awa, and as there
had been much thieving of the root going on for
some time, lie determined to watch it on Monday
night, . lie was found on Tuesday morning in hia
patch, in the condition described. Sheriff Wilcox
was endeavoring to ferret out the perpetrators of the
fti'imire nnd Ro.l mm mnn under arrest on suspicion,.
The Shortest Passage. In a recent numberNJ
the Government Gazette the statement was made
that the shortest passage ever made between San
Francisco and Honolulu, was that of the .Yebraska,
in May, 1871, 9 days and 1G hours. This is an
error, lhe followincr, an abstract of the loir-book of
that steamer, shows a passage ten hours shorter than
the above. The JWbraska left San Francisco Janu
ary Oth, 1873, at 10 a. m., and arrived at Honolulu
January lGth, at 4 r. m. seven days and six hours.
lOlh and lltli. sail and s. !Ui, ran 601 miles.
12(h, no sail, steam only, ran 324 mili-s.
13th, no sail, steam only, ran 290 miles.
14th, sail and steam, ran 204 miles.
l.uh, sail and steam, ran 2S4 miles.
lC.lh, sail and steam, ran miles.
Arrived ut Honolulu.
SP The highly respectable Government Gazelle
has rendered itself liable to a charge of shall we
call it constructive literary larceny ? in saying that
Harper's Jf'eekly for April (what date?) " contains
a portrait of King Kalakaua, being a copy of the one
issued in the illustrated Gazelle." Let us look at
the facts. The Gazelle containing the photograph
was issued March 8th, and went forward by the Jli-
kado, March 10th, and this would barely afford time
for it to reacli the oQJce of the Messrs. Harpers in
New York and be engraved in time for their issue of
April 4th, which contains the portrait in question.
Besides, and what is very conclusive of the question,
the picture in Harper's exhibits a full military dress.
while that in the Gazette, shows a plain black suit
with a etar on the breast. The fact is Harper's pic
ture is copied from the A'uhou. of February 11th, is
sued from this office. So much for the reliability of
the Government Gazette.
Items from Kauai. We are indebted to our at
tentive correspondent at Haualei for the fol'owing :
Princeviile Plantation commenced grinding De
cember 4th, and finished for the season April ICth
1.4S7 clarifiers, 87 days grinding. The season Las
been very wet ground but nine days in April.
Saturday, April 19th, the American schooner
Otsego, 2"J days from San Francisco, anchored in
the bay of Ilanalei, on a sea-otter voyage off the
coast of Japan. She was in want of fuel and water,
which was supplied by the Plantation. Sailed on
the morning of the 20th.
v April 11th, as the works commenced for the
day, a coolie tending the straicer, carelessly got his
upper left arm between the piston rod and guides of
the large juice-pump, causing a serious compound
fracture tho muscles and bone were torn out of the
arm. Immediate attention was given to the man
the hemorrhage stopped and the bones replaced.
Dr. Smith, who had been sent for from Koloa, found
the injured man on the third day doing well.
Saline Humor. There are apparently two distinct
classes of sailers belonging to men-of-war. One are
the younger and utterly reckless sort, who go in for
fast horse-riding and other demonstrations; while
the other class are the "oldsters," who are rather
more staid and philosophical in their style of using
shore liberty. One of the latter sort was observed
about 10 o'clock the other nijht, near the entrance
to a public house, yawning and stretching like one
just out of a sleep, as Le met a shipmate. " I've
slept for the space of about two bells," said he,
" and thought I'd just turn out and take a night
cap before coiling down for the middle watch. D'ye
see, I lodge close aboard here." His shipmate ex
pressing a desire to inspect his lodgings and perhaps
take a room also, was politely shown across the street
to a table on the sidewalk, occupied during the day
as a fruitstand. This wa3 Jack's " snug harbor;"
but during his absence in search of a night-cap,"
another of his shipmates, equally appreciative of
good lodgings, had appropriated his berth. " See
here, mate," said he, quietly, as he tumbled the
sleeper underneath the table " I first diskivered
this craft, and I'm not to be pirated out of it, d'ye
ye see." And again he composed himself to sleep, "

gooa account of the crui.e next fall. In every rei
pect, the Kirairtiy is fitted out in a superior manner!
nder tbe immediate care and supervision of Mr' j
George MacfarUne, the Acting British Vice Consu
Fmr. I'epartmfst IniLL. Last eveniug, at a few
minutes before S o'clock, the fire alarm rang for drill,
the Engines taking previously assigned routes. The
following is the report as handed us by Chief Engi
neer Hassinger :
No. 1, down King street to Fort, down Fort to
Queen; attach to corner hydrant. Time from strik
ing the alarm to playing from Eugiue, G m. 6 sec.

The Hook & Ladder Company was not out.
i2P In describing what we saw and heard at the
Leper Asylum of Molokai, we iu no wise undertook
or intended to give a history of the inception and es
tablishment of that institution, so creditable in all
its details, not only to the individual members of the
government and of the Board of Health, bnt to all
who in any way contributed thereto. This is why no
mention is made in our account of particular persons
who have by their exertions and labors identified
themselves with the Asylum. It may be deemed a
matter of simple justice however to state, that Mr.
11. W. Meyer, a resident of Molokai, has for several
years been most active and efficient as a General
Agent of the Boar 1 of Health, a position which he
still holds. Mr. Meyer resides at Kalae, over the
mountain from the settlement, to reach which on
his frequent visits he has to descend an almost per
pendicular precipice, irnpasnble on horseback.
When the Board bought out the koleanas of the
people residing at Kalaupapa, the business of making
bargains and attending to the details of purchase
was executed by Mr. Meyer no small task, as may
be supposed. . . .
Death of Mr. C. A. Castle. It is with extreme
sorrow that we announce the death on Thursday
evening last of this well-known and much esteemed
gentleman, sou of the Hon. S. N. Castle. He had
been confined to his house by illness only some ten
or twelve daj-s, during which however he suffered in
tensely. For some five years past, Mr. Castle had
occupied the post in the Department of Finance of
Registrar of Public Accounts, with ability and credit.
and his uniform courteous and affable demeanor Iia
HalueU LIm the rood-will anil ratprni of ihi pnti
community. He leaves a widow ami several childrc
(now absent in the U. S.) to mourn his untimely tak-
lra rr:.. atsctrtit OH & Visit to San
Francisco. His funeral took place yesterday after
noon and was numerously attended by our residents,
and also by the Brethren of Excelsior Lodge No. 1.
I. O. O. F., of which the deceased was an active and
efficient member, having held the position of presid
ing officer. Although comparatively young in years.
Mr. Castle was extremely well posted in the laws and
precedents of Odd Fellowship. He was also First
Lieutcnunt of the Hawaiian Guards, which performed
escort duty at the funeral, and fired the usual vollies
at the grave.
Industrial Exhibition of California. We have
received a circular of the Board of Managers of the
"Ninth Industrial Exhibition to be held under the
auspices of the Mechanic's Institute, San Francisco,
California, 1874." The Exhibition will be opened
on the 18th of August next, and will continue for
80 days thereafter. Ample preparations appear to
have been made for a dispbiy of tho material indus
tries, the arts and sciences, natural or other produc
tions, on a grand scale, and the Exhibition will be
open to all the world, and all exhibitors will be
placed on the same footing." We copy the following
from the rules and regulations :
"The Managers are desirous that articles should
be presented early. Those from abroad, intended for
exhibition, should be properly packed, and if not
consigned to exhibitor's agent, must be marked :
Managers of Ninth Industrial Exhibition, San
Francisco, Cal. Articles from foreign countries
should be accompanied with a certificate by the
American Consul, in order that, upon their arrival,
the proper course may be taken to have the duties
remitted. All articles thus received, arriving too
early, will be stored free of cost to the exhibitor, and
the Managers will have them duly placed in proper
position for exhibition. Nj freight charges will bo
paid by the Managers; but exhibitors are notified
that arrangements are being made with various
transportation companies to repay freight charges on
evidence of return of goods exhibited.
" Information will be furnished on addressing
Maaagers of Ninth Industrial Exhibition, San Fran!
The Firemen's Ball.
The ball of " Mechanic " Engine Company No. 2,
to celebrate their 21st anniversary, and which the
sequence of events had more than once postponed,
came off at the Hotel on Thursday night last, and
was in every particular an extremely well conducted
and enjoyable affair. The spacious hall for dancing
wis neatly decorated with evergreens and brilliantly
l'-ghted with gas. Among the decorations we noticed
a large-sized portrait of His Majesty in the centre of
a circle formed by the words ' Long live our Fire
man " the picture supplying the missing word.
The Royal Standard was draped at the back of the
dais at the upper end of the room surmounted by an
evergreen crown, and over the entrance to the hall
was the Company's motto " Our aim the publii j
good." His Majesty honored the Company with bM
presence, arriving at a few minutes past 8 o'c'ock,?in
company with Prince Lcleiohoku and attended by his I
suite, and remainiug until after midnight. Among
the guests we noticed the Princess Lydia Kamakaehai
and Gov. Dominis; the Princess Miriam Like-like and;
the Hon. Mr. Cleghorn; His Ex. the Minister of IheJ
Interior and the Misses Widemann; Major Wode-
house, the British Commissioner; J. S. Chriatie, Esg,.
U. S. Vice-Cunsul; and numerous others. A deliciotis
and bountiful supper, in mine host Herbert's best
style, was served up at 11 o'clock, after which dancng
was resumed and kept up with vigor until the small
hours, to the music of the Government band under
the leadership of Berger, (who seemed to play even
better than ever) alternated by Macauley's excellent
quadrille band. Everybody pronounced the party
one of the best arranged and enjoyable ever eeen
here, reflecting much credit on the enterprise and
management of the gallant " Mechanics."
There is no joy eo great as that which springs
from a kind act or pleasant deed; and you may
feel it at night when you rest, and through tbe
day about your daily business.

8T A BCTIBKO MCMIER Or Till I ULAfT
In tho April number of the Friend it an article
with tbe caption, Dvi AJncric.W Ltu Asian 1! "
in which Prcf. Gold win Smith is accuacJM stating
that that is not true when be y they do. I am
well aware of the fact that "th:i utattiBilit vf the
rrofetaor'a iounda harsh, yet I tn inoKued te be
lieve that he is cvrruct in bit assertion. I do not
mcsn to be understood as believing that this Late "
is of a nature to inJucw optn warfare, that li, it is
not blind hatred, but that there never was, and I
venture to j never will beva real, genuine good
feeling And frttniAatioo , bet era, Jt hm an-I Ja
than. Americans alwajs spe-ak til, nay fondly, of
th Mother Country until they visit l.rr shorts aud
travel throagh tba length uj brtvtldi of th Und.
Then they alnu-st invariably return home feeling dis
appointed aud diailluaiomsi with Johu Bull. Eng.
lishmeu visiting the AVoUod State r centonf to
acknowledge that, for a young aud raw country, it
does very well, but they cannot staud the Yankee.
Amongst alt Ukmc of Engl and via hart UMv4 the
United States and left their iiiiprvann.nt recorded, I
fail to rruuiuWr one who baa evea hinted that the
ties thl biod the twi ceuAtriss) together are other
than thoae of business, while cot a few have taken
flvial paiu to sneer at what they d J not compre
hend aud compare odiously thooe thing that were
iutt-lliille to them with the original as foAud in
England. With Americana iu Lotitl, uudisguiscd

and refreshened by lloetou t drinking. Fajv-oil
Hull meetiugs aud annual whitewashings of Bunker
Hill monument. This feeling of cotilcutpt only needs
a little check; England only netds lo tuub Jonathan
iu the least degree to develop the " hate " tt at Prof.
Smith declarts to be felt by Americans toward Eng
land. The English fevl that the growth of the Ke
publio is a standing mt uacc to cU monarvhii; and
as a conxequt-tice she has always betrayed an tude
ceut haste in taking advantage of tluo political
criws that ujod to tuJanger lite eaMy of the
Kepublio, to place herself iu antagonism to It.
Americans see this, and cannot help fueling that
they are justified in , liatjng " England prt tty
heartily. Filially, Americans hate England tW-eaune
hhe (says she) rules the seas; they hute her because
she insists upuu looking uhii tho I'i'isfA
ephemeral experiment; and they JjbU'Ih be-gflUno
they are born for that purpose. The writer in the
Friend adopts the PumblechnokUn plxn of " awny "-
ing with what he dm s not wish to exNt ; bnt that
does not alter the state of the etiae. There is one
point, however, on which be is wound; he says "the
Americans uo jaiore bate Englaud than do English
men bate America."
The Gaztttt states boldly that Uncle Sain does
lot want to treat with Us for V naval station here,
4 having now more territory than (hoy can take care
Of"! Who told youkK;,Mx. GattlteT Not Chief
Justice Allen, 1 will wager; for 1 do not think that
he would come all the way from Washington, ou his
proecnt visik to the islands, to give utterance to such
a Be utiueut.j Looking at the extent ofj tertstrry over

Jf In view of tho inflated Ideas some of us have (f
4 our importance in the i-olitieal economy of the world,
it may be well to remember that our nggregate of
square- miles of territory is about one eoventh that of
New York State, and that State is not remarkable
Y'ou bit the nail on tho head fcgftaa, deaf P i
A., when you ascribed our "backward march
'gainst time" to a want of labor aijd,capituT(pe-s.
cially labor. Pray what lias become of the Ilawai
lanlmnilgration TtocieiyTvrs nnatrtr, "prime -mover,
aud secretary having gone into newspaper
editing, are we to do nothing more until he abandons
his costly experiment and returns to his secretary
ship? If such be the. case, and if, a $ i pvriencs has
shown, he fs not to be chood off ttti IJ gricp ojf
the quill-editorial, why not get a fretdi secretary who
will not only carry on tbe projected workbut como
iu for all the glory of doing so miooesnfuft . . m
I want to take tbfs'opportunity of congratulat
ing my frieud of the JVuhou, upon one brilliant suc
cess that he has achieved. To make this one solitary
triumph the more conspicuous, it tuny not be amiss
to enumerate what he has not done. He has not
writteu himself Into the Cabinet or Privy Council,
nor has he edited himself into uny one of the nu
merous minor offices that Lave been given away
lately; nor, I will venture to say, has he made him
self any better known to the Hawaiian than be was
before ho started the .Yuhou. .. In view of these fail
ures, liable to be encountered by the Lwit of us, .
it is pleasing to be able to record the fact that he
edits a paper without any scissors ! There are but
two parallels that suggest themselves to mo just now
the Commercial Herald, Hem York, and the fyti
dun Punch, two of the dreariest porters published.
The A'uhuu's account of th Itnyal Progress is
good. There are a few, items though that imply r
draft on the imagination, rather than an actual ex
perience. As for instance. How could the k'tlnuta,
going from Hilo to Kaalaala, Kau, pas Onomea
first and then KaiwikiT Again, we are toll that
His Majesty "put up" in Hilo at Poonahoafioa,
which is Sir Thomas Spencer's name (not that of his
house) and it means "broken head." Again.no
mention is made of the huge transparency Stout
XXX" which, I am told, graced the entrance to the I
lloyal Abode. m& '
There is a venerable joke that his more than
gone the rounds of the papers lately, about one man
who was " a brick," aud another who was a brick
layer." Having read it two or three times in your
Variety column, and the Gaztttt having published
it, may I request as a great favor, that you bvnt
of the compos distribute the stickful tf type in which
it stands? I should be willing to miss the old witti
cism for a few months, for the sake of seeing how
fresh and hearty it would look whu it comes around
I see you want to revive the Hawaiian Agricul
tural Society. I with you success in the. undertak

a feat that will throw Archimedes into the shude.

The lattt census Las' pbown a V(ady decream? of '

does not neglect to investigate, as thoroughly as
possible, the causes of depopulation. . 8otii of '
them ought to be considered, and the nost impor

cause of the depopulation of these Inlands, and
