Last Thursday the little Robbie came up from 1'uuloa to Honolulu in just one hour a distance of over eight milei". Bap Roads. A correspondent at Ewa on thUi island, complains of -the bad condition of the roads between that district and Honolulu, and declares that they are in a worse state or repair than ever before known. Montano's Pictubes. With hi a new apparatus and improved methods of photography and retouch ing, Mr. A. A. Montano has recently produced some very handsome and lifelike pictures at his gallery, corner of Fort and King streets. All Saints Dat. Thursday last was the Church Festival of All SaiDts. instituted A. D. 731 by Greg ory III. ' to the memory of all martyrs and Saints." In the year 834, Gregory IV. removed the feast from the month of May to the season of its present celebration, the first day of November. It is very interesting to contrast the Rev. Editor of the Friend's account of his visit to Portland in 1849 with the description of that place from the pen of our recent tourist Rev. Alexander Mackintosh, whose entertaining narrative is now being published in this journal. Portland has evidently marched with giant .strides in those eight and twenty years. Cuaxgk of Time.

The October number of the American Journal of Science and Ai ts, received by last mail, publishes a letter of Pro fessor Daniel Kirkwood to the Editor, on this subject. He adverts to the fact that the inner satellites complete their orbital revolutions ' in less than a Martial dtty. A day of Mars is 24 hours, 37 minutes 22 seconds and a little less than of a second of our own lime. Jn 7 hours and 38 minutes, on orbital revolution Is made by one of these moons round Mars, or three in less than a Martial day. Salmon Ova. By the last mail steamer from San Francisco, Mr. A. W. Bush of the firm of Ftiel & Eukb. received a number of thousand salmon eggs, from Mr. B. B. Redding, one of the Fi?b commissioners of the State of California (and also connected with the Central Pacific Railroad.) These were placed without delay lo a pond at Ewa, about 14 miles from town, and in a few days the salmon began to appear, being now entirely batched, with a very small per centage of lots. The trout ova, previously sent by Mr. Redding, was also successfully batched, and the young strangers have been placed in the stream cf Wai pahu, where they appear to be thriving. With the salmon, which as is well known is a deep water fih. returning annually to its spawning place, it is proposed, if the experiment turns out a suc cess, to stock our principal island rivers. The beneGt that would thus result to the country at large is too evident lo require any argument, and the thanks of our people are due to both Mr. Redding and Mr. Bush for their efforts in this direction. It will remain for the Legislature at its next session to pass the necessary law for the pro tection of imported Gsbes. Gone to Gras9. In no disrespectful sense do we make the remark that oar friend Captain E. D. Crane, for the past eight years the popular master of the Labaina paoket JYeltie Merrill, has at length actually gone to grass. He has retired from the sea, and goes to reside as Manager of Mr. James Camp bell's estate at Ewa, Oaha. In that quiet sylvan retreat, in full view of the " sounding tea," sur rounded by his interesting family, be can enjoy two consecutive watches below without fear of interrup tion by hoarse cries of " boom-guy I " laff, you lub ber, luff ! " or " ready about! " " Lone has he voysjed o'er the stormy sets) And what a beart-deligut he tee Is at last, So many toils, so many dangers past, To view the port desired, he only knows Who on the stormy deep for many a day Hath tost aweary of his ocean way. And wstch'd all anxious every wind that Mows." Capt. J. II. Hatfield, well-known in the island coast, ing trade as a careful and skillful sailor, succeeds Capt. Crane in the command of the JYtUie Merrill, a vessel that in the matter of speed and the complete ness of all her appointments, stands foremost of our coasting fleet of sailing vessels. His Majesty's Birth-Dat. At the meeting held att.fce Armory on Monday evening ( per previous the celebration of the King's birth-day. which occurs on the 16th inst., a Programme for a Regatta, etc. was adopted, and requisite committees and officers were appointed, as follows : Finance: Gov.

The adjourned meeting will beheld at the Armory this (Saturday) evening at 7$ o'clock Doctoe Tisdale gives special attention to the treatment of the Eye and Ear. We hear that there is some chance of a rifle shooting match being got tip here by some ama teurs of hbarp practice ut the butts. The litlbgies of the Falishas of Abyssinia have been published iu the original .Ethiopio with a He brew truncation, by Harlevy, who, in 1SG7, about the time of the AbysHnhu Expedition, visited this singular people, a sort of Abyssinian Jews. At the Theatre a benefit to Mr. Harry Causland is given this evening. Mr. C. has been for many months a most deserving performer in his line of acting, and being desirous to leave by the next steamer for California, we bespeak for him a full houre. Songs, dances, tricks, feats, &c, and a duet from Norma rendered by the unrivaled queens of opera. Mesdames Derbyana and Wesselini in a style such as it was never rendered before by either N ill son or Patti, will make the evening's performances a very entertaining medley, and a treat to lovers of the higher walks of music. As Ovatiu.v Laot Thursday on the departure for Labaina per Xettie Merrill of the newly mar ried couple Mr. and Mr. James Campbell the baud was in attendance on the wharf and played a number of appropriate uiix. winding up with ' Auld Lang Syne."Ir.

Those voices from Rbioeland acquire additional sweetness and at tractive charm, as they reach us month after month from the enchanting home of the Syren Lorley. Our own recollections of a traveler's adventures in the beauteous Rhenish Valley bring baok dim visions of lovely maids with golden hair aud soft blue eyes, be fore whose angelic goodness the seductive witchery of the mythical enchantress Lorley must fade like an ignis faluus In the brilliance of the starry galaxy on high. We believe that the romantic Land of the Rhine has not lost its reputation in this respect, and youth is a happy dream of romance. LAIi, I p. On tfislast tup of tho steamer Liktlike lo Kauai, wbert off Koloa. another fan of her screw dropped oflf; -leaving but one, the other two having been lost on b(T-first circuit of Hawaii. Iu consequence of being thus crippled, the Mearner did not arive from Nawiliwili until after 1 o'clock on Sunday. An order for a new screw was sent to San Francisco by mail steamer, and it is expected here by the steamer, of the 12th. It is hoped that within a week alter tha receipt of the new screw it will bu In position, and the Likelihe be enabled to leave for the circuit of Hawaii. It is hardly necessary to say that the entire community heartily sympathizes with Mr, Wilder, the owner of the steamer, in the unfortu nate aud vexatious " laying up" of our beautiful and commodious '-inter-island bridge," which is thus rendered imperative. A vert Daniel. Recently in the court of one of the District Justices on the Island of Kauai, two Chinamen were brought up on a warrant charging them with selling intoxicating drink to natives. On the day set for trial the prosecution asked and obtained a postponement till next day on account of the absence of material witnesses. When the case was called on the succeeding day, native counsel for th; defense asked for the dis charge of his clients, on the ground that the warrant of arrest required their attendance on a certain day and hour, and that they could not be legally tried on any other day. The learned judge (also a native) after a short deliberation, decided that the exception was well taken and ordered the discharge of the prisoners. " O wise judge! a very Daniel, come to judgment !" The ise of obacene language and the practice of profane swearing are highly reprehensible, aud should not be tolerated in any christian commu nity. In some countries, as in Great Britain, fines and imprisonment are the penalties inflicted upon culprits, who are guilty of using obscene or pro fane language. In this country, there is a sad habit of profane cursing and swearing, and using filthy language ; and while our authorities are giving effect to other laws which by desuetude hava been considered as dead letters, we beg to call at tention to Sectiou 3 of Chap. 24 of the Renal Code, which reads an follows : " Whoever, having arrived at the age of discretion, profanely curses or swear', shall be punished by a fine from one to six dol lars ; but no prosecution for such offence shall be sustained, unless it shall be commenced within thirty days after the commission of the offence." I. a slbsf.ql'ENT issue we propoie to publish some extracts from a most interesting article in Harper's Monthly for October entitled, " From Brusa to Con stantinople" where the intelligent American trav. eler who writes, gives some very useful information about Turkey and Turks, which we advise all those who are blindly prejudiced against the Ozmaunlees to peruse for their own enlightenment. This re markable writer justly admits: "But It is only fair to the Turks to allow them credit for the reforms they have attempted to accomplish, and for the fact that if some of these, reforms Lad depended upon the fanaticism of the native Christians, little would have been done in this direction." four and a quarter penturles ago almost, the Cbrimian nations of West ern Europe allowed Constantinople to fall beneath the Ottoman Scimetar, without striking a blow to save the intolerant Greek Empire of the Est. The same fanatical spirit now animates those Eastern Christians, as in tho day when the last Paleologus died In the ruins of his empire as this enlightened American magazinist most correctly observes. Political Fouehaiowi.vgh. The following ap pears to be a foreshadowing of the European com. plications which our reports by last mall point to, as the probable resuit of the prolongation of the Hr4sso-Tuikib war : An alliance between RusMa, the I'rueso Germanic Empire and Italy; a rupture with Austria; a war of restoration in Italy with Spanish aid againet Victor Emanuel; an uUeuipt to restore the French Empire by a fusion of Impe rialists and Hoyalixts, which If successful, will be followed by a war a toU outiance against the PrusKO-Germattlc power; neutrality of the Catholic German States; on attack by Holland and Den- j mark on the Prusso-Gerroanic Empire; an attempt I of Sweden to recover Finland and the former ! Swedu-Baltic provinces from Kussia; a revolution in Poland; a rising against the Russians in Cauca sia and Turkietau; and, in fine, a policy of armed neutrality on the part of England, which may ulti mately veer round to a temporary or ven definite occupation of Egypt, in case the Padishah should, be put hot s de comlxif, by Russia; Greece Is ikly lo join against Turkey; Portdgal wih 8pol,n., an,d Belgium with France.

During three days this week a house, which was being removed by native engineers from Berllunla Hticetto tho upper part of Fort Htieet, got " stalled" In some way on the corner oppooitc the Fort street church, and dur ing those three days that portion of the publio highway was eflVctually closed to all travel, ex cept on foot.

Sir : Uefering to tho recent Maori controversy in the newspaper world of Honolulu, I notice that nothing very definite has been arrived at as to the present condition of tht Maori lo Lis own country ; and now come to the rescue with oy testimony, which is of a decided natars and oannot truthfully be contradicted. I was formerly Travelling Reporter for the Daily Southern Cross, a leading Auckland journal, and on diflsreut occasions visited King Tawhio's country, the great stronghold of MaoriJom; and from what I saw, have no hesitation in pronoun cing the Maori a Worker. lis carries on farming to a large extent, raises cattle, horses, sheep, Logs ko. In Alexandra, the Maori market town situated on tba borders of the lands confiscated by Great firman, immense quantities of wheat and other product Is annually disposed of to the Palrha (white man.)

The days of the enforcement of "blue-laws" have passed iu till eulightened countries, and the sooner the authorities here understand this the sooner they will cease to be the laughing-stock of those who are mere liberally disposed towards their fellow-men. If one person is to be prevented from doing as he chooses to please himself innocently ou the Sabbath, then I say, prevent all. Allow no conveyances to run on that day; cause every one to walk, whether it be to church or elsewhere; forbid people from kissing their wives or children ou Sunday, and set spies ta see that they don't do it us was done In the olden time in Connecticut, the "good old days" one is always hearing about. And then then we will Lave the millennium but the average person will be very ua hoppy. Jt stick. WoHbtarcL stories are told of the doings of " spirits" in various localities of the United Stales. The furniture of rooms Is often tumbled about, feather beds are carried down stairs, loaves of bread burst into bits, tra caddies turn upsde down, fly across the room and jCtter the tea which they contain in all directions. 'Now, without Laving recourse to supernatural agency, it ftrikes us that many of these " prodigies" can Le etpIiiECJ turally. What keeps the particles that compose a loaf of bread together? A power in nature called the " attraction of cohesion." The same power keeps all the particles of matter of which this globe is composed together, and without it this globe would burst into pieces. We all Lave heard of earthquakes and some of us Lave felt them, they may be said to Le mainly due to eleotrlo currents. If, then, a loaf of bread suddenly dances off a shelf and bursts Into pieces, is It not quite possible that this may be caused Ly some eleotrlo influence unknown to us which destroys the " attraction of cohesion," of the particles composing the loaf f Again there is another power in nature called the at traction of gravitation, under the influence of which inert bodies rest stationary until put in motion. Here, also, unknown eleotrlo influences may tern, porarly counteract the attraotion of gravitation of an inert body, such as a feather bed, and lift it up, carrying it down stairs from the garret to the cellar. Suppose a man drinks too much whiskey ; he often loses Lis center of gravity, and tumbles down and rolls about involuntarily, Lavhag no longer the control of his movements. This is the effect of an overcharge cf electricity contained in the alcohol taken into Lis Lody ; and In this case the elect rio influence Is produced in an organlo sub stance. Much in the same way, a man is thrown down by lighting or the discharge of an clectrlo battery. The fact Is, mankind are still almost torn pletely ignorant cf the unseen powers of nature, and superstition still holds a fearful grasp on the human mind ; Lenoe, any ciroumstanoe not Im mediately explicable according to oar limited know ledge of the laws cf nature, is ranked a superna tural. Just as eolipses are still thought lo be the work of the Devil In many parts of the world. As for spiritualism, all these who believe in it sincerely for among spiritualists are impostors are under the influence of a distempered imagination, like a drunkard or a madman, or a person delirious, or the devotee cf a vision. The Imagination la a most dangerous faculty. New Zealand Items. We copy the following from tho Auckland Herald: A good deal of discussion Las taken place In the House on the subject of malpractices In the obtain ing of titles to Und in the Ilawke's Bay distriot. It is alleged that the signatures of natives were obtained to conveyances whilst the signers were drunk ; that natives were templed to run Into debt In order that they might be prosecuted, and ao forced to sign conveyances. Mr. Ormond, the MinUter of Public Works, Is stated to Lave been connected with some of the worst cases. Mr. Rees member for Auckland East, who Las lately been engaged on behalf of those natives who are attack ing some of the most valuable titles In Ilawke'e Bay, moved for a committee to Investigate the subject. An entertainment of a novel character, took place in the school-room, Kawakawa, on the 21st August, for the purpose of raising funds towards the uinount required for the bulldiog of a hostelry for the native children attending the Walomlu School. The novelty was that the greater part cf the programme was rendered by native children, whose ages ranged from Ave to fifteen years, and the manner In which they acquitted themselves reflected great credit on their teacher, Mr. Lorrigan. The Education Bill brought in by the Govern ment Las virtually passed the House of Represen tatives, having been considerably altered Ironi u first shape. In the original bill it was provided that a portion of Scrip lure and the Lord's Prayer should be read each day at the opening of the school, and the bill Is now entirely oecular. The Klogites are at present quiet. They still maintain their Isolation, and forbid any Europeau settlement within their borders, but they are evi dently anxious to avoid a collision with the Euro peans.

Iu the letter received from the Rev. Geo. Urowit. .That the rebellion, or internecine war among the natives, has been pro ductive ot much evil, the effects of which will be felt hereafter, is evident from the fact that on sev eral Islands of the group at somu distance from Upolo. great destruction ol ooooanat and bread fruit trees has taken place, and at Savaai 11 is esti mated that upwards of 2&.0U0 trees have been wan tonly destroyed. This is only upon one ol the islands, nni If Ike same wanton spirit has been displayed al other Island where the rival factions re settled, the mbchtef will Le more serious thin anticipated. The destruction of cocoanut and breadfruit trees Is a great evil ; the nuts of the farmer, when made into copra, are the chief staple of commerce, and the Utter constitutes the chief arliclu of rood. .A scarcity of the fruit of either means to the natives great suffering, with disease and death.
