Forest Fires. At a lira- like the present,
when everything is dried up to tinder by tie
drought, the frequent fires upon the mountains
are fraught with great danger to the public in
terests, and every exertion should be made by the
authorities for their extinguishment. For the last
few weeks there bare been frequent fires on the
tills at the bead of Nuuanu Valley, and if tbey
should sweep down into the low ground tbey
would destroy the cresses and young bushes and
trees wbich, through the care of tbe last two
years, have been enabled to gain a foothold.
This embryo forest, if allowed to thrive, is the
only chance we have that the Nuuanu stream will
ever regain its former volume. Now, when
these fires are raging, it is a public duty wbich
ought not to be neglected by tbe authorities, to
bring them at once under control. This can be
easily done by sending a suOcient force of men
with axes, shovels and other implements to fight
the fires by cutting down and dragging away
tbe withered trees and dead bushes out of the
reach of the devouring element, and digging up
tbe grass in its front, so as to leave nothing to
feed the games. There is a heavy responsibility
in this matter which those to whom it belongs
will have to bear. We bear of forest Ores on
Maui and Hawaii, and what we have here said is
equally applicable to those islands. No doubt
we shall soon bear of similar fires on Kauai.
Royal Hawaiian Theatre This week closes the
entertainments of one of our greatest attractions,
the performances of Mr. John Jack, wife and Miss
Ingles. Their sojourn in Honolulu has been a con
tinual pleasure to those who admire first-class act
ing; and their high talent, spirit, and naturalness,
and evident desire to please, bas made them favorites.

By tho arrival, on Monday evening, or tbe
Btcamcr Zcalandia, wo have date- irom ojunrj
to February 23, and from Auckland to March 5 ;
London dates are to March 4. We give a brief
summary of tLo most important events which
have occurred subsequent to February 23, our
latest dates by tho Si. Paul:
First in importance, and tho latest news, is
the telegram announcing that the cace condi
tions between lluseia and Turkey have teen
signed. Now, if tbia desirable result La leeo
attained, it ia to be hoped that those nation
which were girding on their armor will restore to
its ecabbard tbe tword already half drawn, and
pare mankind from witnessing further aeenee of
carnage and devastation with which the last few
months have been so prolific.
The termi imposed upon Turkey are, pcrhapa,
as favorable as she had a right to expect,
defeated as she has been, at every point. Indeed,
it appcan that her utter extinction as a power
in Europe has only been delayed through the
clemency of the conqueror. If, contrary to our
expectatiens, any of tbe other powers should now
eee t to intervene, upon any pretense, and en
deavor to continue the war on Turkish soil,
military considerations might induce Russia to
take the whole country under its protection, In
other words, annex it, and reduce it to a com
poncnt part of her own Empire. The balance of
European power as it now exists, might be dis-

Mr. Editor : In your last issue are some re
marks respecting my conduct of tbe outer tele
graph station, a position which I have occupied
for some years past. Tbe wiiler is mistaken.
Whenever I see a vessel say 20 or i50 miles off
it is useless to telegraph at once, fur the Pilots
nor tbe tug would want to go off. 1 therefore wait
until tbe vessel is near at bund. .Sometimes a
Vessel is three or lour days in sight between
Oabu and Molokai, becalmed ; at other times
a strong breeze brings tbem very quickly in sight
from town. I doubt if any other person would
be willing to remain, as 1 Lave done, at lhat desert
spot ; and it fault is lound with me occasionally,
let me not be accused ot laziness or inattention,
but charge it to some other cause. If anyone
will visit ray station and remain with me a while.

The London Globe states that in the event of
an expeditionary force being landed in Turkey,
Lord Napier of Magdala, will be in command.
The severity of the terms demanded by Bussia
is considered by England and Austria as provo

To the Dlitor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
Sir : Since my communication to tbe Adverti
ser of last week, my theories, regarding forest and
raius, have been several times attacked as false,
because I have planted many thousands of trees
years ago upon another island, where at present a
serious and prolonged drought prevails. As this
touches on private domain instead of public inter
est. I wish to confine mytself alone to the following
1. That I never planted a single tree except
when ordered or where tbe bole was ready dug.
2. That I only once expressed my desire to plaDl a
a forest, wben I judged a forest necessary for tbe
purpose of rain, and asked tor 90 men to plant out
a ball million Mulberry slips, but was told, that if
rain would not be forthcoming without my using
90 men to plant slips, every man on the place
wonld be discharged. To my certain knowlejge
I neter afterwards applied for 'JU men to plant
slips. 3. I wish to state positively that tbe pre
vailing drouzbt is to my reasoning a full and most
complete; proof of my theory, and that I am fully
convinced, that planting forests for purposes of
rain, requires a serious consideration of tbe vhere.

not every one is capable of planting forests. Per

may be very true, but then also, It must be borne
in mind, and be taken into consideration, wbat
Immense benefits wild cattle, goats, sheep, etc.,
receive from tbe existing foreets, and through
these tbe country itself.
In conclusion, let me beg your pardon for hav
ing during tbe last 8 or 10 years so often intruded
upon tbe columns of tbe Commercial Advekti.her
tbe subject of forests, rain, etc., a subject wbicb
really appears to be of very little or no interest
at all to the community. Being now enabled to
read the pages of tbe bright or clear present, It
is of course needless to study tbe a b c of the
sombre future. I'eople seldom withdraw their

Wiummj I tkukhth. Tbe last year bat been
free from especial disasters, and there lave been
no changes in tbr business worthy of note, except
the continued additions made to tbe fleet, (ship
building bas revived, and twelve whalers were
built during tbe year, it being now apparent that
at tbe present prices new vessels can be kallt
cheaper than merchantmen can be altered Into
Tbe present whaling fleet is 187 vessels, against
172 January 1. 1677, 1C9 in 167C sod 163 in 1875;
but although tbe increase Is mostly in tbe sperm
wbale fleet, the catch in tbe past year is not greater
tban for 187C, on account of the grounds being
over-crowded with vessels.
Tbe North PaclRo whaling fleet was very suc
cessful the last season. Tbe catch wss small until
September, wben whales were found plenty, snd
large fares were taken. Three vessels were lost,
and sixteen vessels came out with an average of
1.0 C5 barrels ol oil and 6550 pounds of whalebone.
