The gift U a syuibil of gratit.il,' u 043 wlii large, ly contributed toward making the oclebratiou sq successful hare, and the Captain of the Pensacala should be requested to carry to Surgeon Ruth a letter from our townspeople, suitably accompany ing the cane with proper expreasi mi of appreciation. NEWS OF THE WEEK. j Saturday and Sunday were quiet days at the sta I tion house. i The barkeutine Eureka arrived on Saturday j night 14 day from San Francisco, loaded down to i the scuppers. I The Kalakaua arrived Sunday at noon, 1 days 1 from San Francisco with a very large cargo of gen I eral merchandise. Colonel Claus Spreckels aud family aud Mr. E. L. G. Steele returned to town Sunday morning by the Kilauea II ou. We are indebted tu .Messrs. J. M". Oat, Jr., A Co. ! for their ciurtsy in supplying late Frisco file by Consuelo and Kalakaua. Captain Die. v of tlie Cia.i Spreckels made the quickest run fro.n Honolulu to the Cant of all the vessels that left here last mouth. Fourteen sailors who broke leave from the Peu sacola were arrested by the police on Saturday under orders from Cijjtaiu Ender. The Consuelo arrived oj jj 01 1 about 3 o'clock ou Saturday morning, and hauled in to the dock mail k of the O. S. S. wharf about 10 o'clock. Number liv ho company turned out for prac tice on Saturday afternoon at the new artesian well but the wat 'r supply was insufficient. The Ainu-da trav-dl-id at the rate of sixteen knot an hour on h-r triil trip. Her guaranteed Hoced is foartei-.'i .111 1 a half ku t when burning. fifty tons of coal a day. The German service hehl at the residence of II, F. Glade, Es.j., to which all Germans were cor dially invited took place Sunday morning. Herr candidate F. Bichter conducted the service. The Hawaiian Bell Telephone Company will re duce the rents of all Telephones in private houses from six ti thre-i d illar p;r month and on those in use in b nine houses the re:it will probably bu $5 a month each. The reduced rate of rents will commence on 1st October. Cajitain Cousins of the brigantine Consuelo made his last trip from San Francisco in 12 li days instead of 14 days as we announced Monday. The brigantine, which the Captain handles admirably, is one of the fastest sailing voatsel that runs between this jiort and the Coast. A meetiug of the 1'rivy Council was huld on Sat urday at noon when the cliart r of the Chamber of Commerce, which hid expired, was renewed with Home slight altcrati !. The application of the Kapiolaui Park Utihvay Company for a charter was refused. The Honolulu Tug Co.'m application was withdrawn, and the Hon ilulu Carriage Man ufacturing Co.'s ap.iliciti .i f u" a cii irt.-r was re ferred to a Committee. Seventeen acres of cam were burned on the Ke kaha Plantation, on Kauai, ou Welnesday evening last. The fire originated accidentaly through the carelessness of smokers. There will be no materi al loss to the plantation a the caiu in the ti.-ld where the tire occurred was being ground at the mill at the time of the aecid.'ut, and the whole of the dam igel can.' cau b-'c u anl round within a few days. Another fire in cane is reported from Kauai. Thirty or thirty-five acres of cane on the Kealia plantation owned by Col. Z. S. Spalding was des troyed last week. How the tire gat started we are unable to ascertain. The cane was not very large but the loss is considerable: These fires ought to be a warning to planters. Hereafter more caution should be used, and such accidents will occur very much more rarely when the danger is felt. Two children playing on King street near the Chinese Theater Monday came very near being run over by an express which passed at some speed while they were chasing each other in sport to and fro across the street. Young children ought not to bo allowed to play iu the street at all; es pecially not in any of the thoroughfares of the city. They are liable to get ahiorhed in some game and lie hirt by passing carriages. The case of J. E. Wiseman agaiut A. li. Kerr for the settlement of a partnership account was heard in the Supreme Court 011 Thursday and Friday be fore Associate-Justico Austin. Messrs. Smith and Thurston appeared for the plaintiff and Mr. John Kussell for th'T d 'fendant. The parties interested had gone into partnership in two booths at Kapio laui Park races, and there was difficulty in settling up the share due to each after paying expenses, The decision of tho ojiirt has not yet buon given. Surveyors aro now engaged in laying out the town of Kahului which with its advantages as a point of export and import will doubtless, become a thrifty city in the course of a few years. The new court house which is to be built in a prominent place near the harbor will make a great change in the appearance of the town. The structure will be substantial rather than orna mental perhaps, but it will certainly bo an im provement to. any thimg in the way of buildings that are already erected. The last mail brings to hand several journals, which speak alarmingly of the prevalance of li-p? rosy in America.

Ou his return trip from Kohala to Honolulu, ltev. S. C, Damon went by the way of Hilo and was so far accompanied by his son, F. W. Damon. At Uilo steps were taken by F. W. Damon to in augurate a Chinese Mission Church which is to be the headquarters of Chinese Mission work in th Hilo district. A suitable hquso was secured in Church street where regular services will Jbo held by Mohing who acts as co'poriur generally visit ing the different neighboring plantations during the week. The mission has received substantial aid from Lee Loy, an old resident of Hilo, aud also rom the Foreign Christian Church.

The game of base ball on Saturday proved a dis appointment to a large number of persons who ex pected to witness a closely-ooutosted match. It wa eyijeut from the first innings that the Amitias, to say the least, were sadly out of practice, and in no condition to meet a nine working so well to; get her as did the Honolulans. At the end of the seventh innings the Amities "threw up the sponge' the score standing 21 to 1 against them. Smithies deserves credit for making the only run for the Amitjea. At the oouol i-iiun of the h-1'1' the players were invited to Mr. Julian Monsarrat's house at Makiki wheiw'ahey were hospitably entertained; they sub sequently finished the day at the Hotel. On Friday night at half past eleven there was a narrow escape from a most destructive fire in Hono lulu. A Mr. Fowler keeps a large boarding house on King street with several cottage and rooms built in a large yard, at the back of the house, to whioh there is aq entrance from Niiuanu street, At tlae hour mentioned one of the boarders who was asleep in a cottage was awoke by the glare of a light and immediately jumpinnp he found mat trass ablaze in an adjoining room; he at c nc oajled tor help and with the assistance of several other boarders the burning mattrass was dragged into the yard aud at oqoe extinguished. The whole of the surrounding buildings aro old and bqilt cf wood bo that it is extremely fortunate the fire wag so quickly subdued especially as a strong breeze was blowing at the time, or the probabilities' are that a great part of King and Nuuanu streets would have been destroyed.

Wallace's Select School for Girls, 190 Nuu anu avenue, will re-open on Monday, Sept. 17th. A good many of the Pensaccla boys were enjoy ing themselves in taking an excursion around the city during the week. Mondav the mate and one of the crew of the Iwalani had a little scuffle ou the Iwalani wharf. No casualities. Mrs. Wallace's select school for girls will re-open upon Monday the 17th of September. Prompt at tendance of the pupils is desired. A diver was employed Tuesday iu makin; some minor reDairs on the bottom of the steamer Likelike. A crowd assembled to witness the oper attr. Just before the City of New York sailed yester day a man and his wife were put ashore because they had no tickets. The couple expressed very decided opinion regarding the cruelty of their fate. Has been visiting Hanalei for the past few weeks and has enjoyed himself well at that quiet beauti ful place. He returned 011 the C. It. UishopSatur day, aud will visit other of the islands before he returns East to resume his course of study. Mr. Allen has already graduated and Is now preparing himself for the profession of the law. Given by His Majesty to the Captain and officers of the U. S. S. Peusacola Monday, at Waikiki, was attended by all the officers that could be pres ent from the man-of-war, members of the Diplo matic and Consular Corps, officials of the Hawaii an Government and many resident ladies aud gen tlemen. The gathering was large and brilliant and the festivity thoroughly enjoyed by all. After half-past nine o'clock on Monday night last, the iidivs that the stjauir City of New York was otf port, spread like wildfire through the help of the telep'i me, wliieh called forth several busi ness men aud others fr mi their slumbers, di.vu to the wharf, but after a while it turned out to be the steamer Mokolii which had just left port for the weather side of this island. Good joke, eh ! 1 1 A11 accident occurred Tuesday afternoon near Irwin A- Co.'s office, at the junction of Queen and Fort streets. One of Smith's express wagons was passing at some speed up Fort street and just as it reached the corner irear Irwin's a carriage driven by a native, came down Queen street and the two collided. One of the wheels of the carriage was carried away, and a passenger that happened to be inside severely jolted, but no farther damage was done. Tuesday night four foreigners had a scuffle in Smith's Lane and some pretty pugilistic feats were performed in rather of a rough aud ready style. Something of a crowd began to gather around the bellegerauts as they continued to perform, and the attention of a policeman was called to the fracas. Three of the party were promptly arrested. The fourth escaped. None of those who participated iu the row were badly injured; The Amity ball club has given up its match with the Honolulu club for the best two iu three match games, for the S50 which Mr. Ellis offered as a prize to the winning nine. Tuesday Mr. Daniel Lyons, in whose hands the prize money was depos ited, paid over the money to Mr, Whitney, captain of thw Honolulu club. The Amity club has had but comparatively little practice, and would prob ably have been beaten if it had played the remain ing two games, but it would have shown more pluck by fighting the match through like heroes. A young laborer who has been in Honolulu tak ing a little recreation for a week or sq chanced to see a colured husband and wife engaged in a little "set to" about some domestic difficulty on liere tania near Nuuanu street last Tuesday, and decided that his duty as a man called upon him to inter fere aud save the woman from a terrible castiga tion. He stepped between the debating couple who both stopped for an instant and considered the situation; then, evidently deciding that the in truder was too previous, they joined in giving him a very instructive lesson, as the rustic declares. Some very excellent good-flavored sweet potatoes have been raised this year on the other side of this island, by natives. In portions of the Southern States, in America, these vegetables are raised largely aud used instead of what are commonly called Irish potatoes. Judging from the soil in which they flourish on this island, we should say there is sufficient land in this country to grow enough of them for domestic consumption and to export enough to pay for all the foreign potatoes imported here. This matter is worthy of attention. The variety of sweet potatoes usually planted here is not the very best and fiue foreign varieties should bo introduced. Among the natives of Hawaii in ancient' times colds and consumption rnuet have been aim ost, if not quite unknown, and yet among the natives and foreigners that live here to-day severe cold au d cases of consumption are by no mean .rare, and. we believe that one of the principal causes of this change is attributable directly to the use of unnec essarily heavy clothing, which is often worn with out regard to time or season, and removed in whole or in part when the body becomes excessively warm. Then the person "cools off" too suddenly and a cold results. If frequent or severe colds are allowed to run their course and no pains is taken to cure them they are a certain source of more per manent lung difficulties, which onght to be un in these Islands. Some conjectures unfavorable to the perpetuity of our Iroaty have been oaused by the news ob tained by the last mail in relation to the report of the sugar commissioners, who lately visited the Islands. The surprising announcement is made that "from private sources it learned that their report will sustain Mr. Belmont' charges, as a whole." But as the official report Las not been pub lish and rumors are sometimes "privately" cir culated in the United States until they become public currency, as is occasionally the case in Honolulu, we need not be too hasty in giving the information gleaned from "private sources" undue credit, The Postmaster-General Whitny returned from an officiol visit to Kauai lat Saturday, During his stay on that island ho appointed Mr. G. B Bowell postmaster at Waimea; Mr. J. B. Graut, at Kapaa; Mr. James M. Gibson, at Hanalei. All of these are made money order offices. Libue and Koloa have been money order officers for some time past. The postal service on Kauai is now very efficient. Mails are regularly distributed all over the island whenever steamers arrive and all the residents of the island speak in the highest terms of praise in regard to Mr. Whitney's arrangements. Besides regulating all the details of the service, as oould only be done by his personal presence, the Postmaster-General was able to meet with his subordi nates and give them general instructions which will materially aisist them in the discharge of their duties. The value of real estate in this Kingdom has ad vanced very rapidly darilS tla 1 en years, Lands that oould have been purchased for almost nothing in 1373 are now hardly to be purchased at any price. In some cases irrigation has increased the value of lands but the general cause of the raise in price is doubtless owing to the Reciprocity Trea ty and the development of plantations on the Is lands. There are now but few considerable tracts of desirable land that can be purchased for less than from $50 to $100 per acre. The lime is not far distant when it will be next to impossible to buy land t"any late here.. Chinamen are now paying fron $15 te S23 per acre year rental for rice lands, and making money at that. Qf course ouly a very small propotioa of even the arable area of the island can be used for rice planting, and that is perhaps very nearly all under cultivation now, but wherever, th&re Is soil capable of cultiva tion or of producing any kind of grass for pastur age a considerable rental can be readily obtained by owners, who, being thus certain of a goodly reg ular income, will not be anxious to sell. Work has been begun on the roof of the new brick building, at the corner of Fort and Merchant streets. The schooner Ka Moi lost two anchors and chains at Kaiwilahilahi, Hilo.

To describe things as nobody else sees them" is about the highest praise a reader can bestow on a writer, modest contemporary; for if a place or thing is actually, really describeJ, and yet iu a manner which makes them appear iu a different light from that iu which the ordinary observer sees theui, wuy, then the description bears the mark of genius and has the attractiveness of nov elty. But don't you give us "taffy," souuy! The cause of the delay of the City of New York was a broken forward crank pin. The accident oc curred August 22ud and siuce that time the steam er has proceeded with one engine. Otherwise she had a tolerably favorable voyage, aud brings colo nial news up to the data of August 14th, the day of her departure from Auckland. She left Hono lulu yesterday for San Francisco. Before sailing her broken crank pin was not repaired. The City of New Yew York sailed for Sait Fran cisco about 12:30 p. m. Wednesday, taking about forty-nine passengers and ten mail bags contain ing 5, od letters an 1 2.070 papers. The steamer also took considerable freight. Considering the comparatively recent departure of the last mail for the Coast, it seems to us that the number of letters is very extraordinary, and shows that the residents of Honolulu are a corresponding, business people. Mr. Wray Taylor gavo a private organ recital to a few friends on Tuesday evening at St. Andrew's Cathedral playing the following programme whioh was much appreciated: March Triompnale Archer Andante in F .

Lemmens Fanfare 4,Mr. T. D. McKay, general agent for the Chicago Burlington and Quiney R. R. has opened negotia tions for the establishment of a general ticket of fice iu Houolulu. Mr. McKay is one of the best known and most enterprising railroad men in the States and without a doubt he will soou complete arrangements by which tickets directly through America to the Atlantic sea board or even to any part of Europe caii be purchased in this city at re duced rates. Tho Chicago Burlington aud Quiney R. R. is uuivorsally coueeeded to be one of the best equipped railways in the world and all parties going east of Chicago from this place at any time will consult their own interest and comfort by traveling bv this line. It seems to us that there are less picnics and short ejoursious into tho country made by the peo ple of Honolulu than by the residents of any simi lar city we have ever visited. With every natural attraction to iuduee those who are pent np in offices and city residences or schools to take an occasion al stroll for a day into the mountains our residents are often about as perpetually shut up within the limits of their offiees or domiciles as if there was no lovely, sniling, breezy Jeoun try around. Picnics and picuie Excursions sh-vil 1 be organized at once. They will afford a very agreeable means of social enjoyment and recreation at the same time. If they are once thoroughly tried it is probable that they will become popular and modify not a little the monotony of urbane life. Henry Ward Beechcr has e'lolivered a sermon at last, which unblushingly upsets all the orthodox theories and teachings of his younger days. It seems that the venerable rerorend. gentleman, uut dertook an analysis of the attributes of Deity, and tho American fli'gi.iter says that "the coolness and audacity with which Beechcr criticised all the Christian and established ideas of God surpasses the profanest utterances of Robert Ingersoll. The account of the 'sermon' evidences that tho congre gation was in accord with his views, as ho was fre quently greeted with applause and approving shouts of laughter." With such an illustrous ex ample before them it will nut be strange if many lesser luminaries of tho pulpit follow Mr. Beech er's example. It is a matter of very general complaint that there are no accommodations for travelers, or next to none, on the other islands. It is true, indeed, that planters are always very hospitable and many of the leading native residents receive strangers with kindness, hut notwithstanding all this, the faot still remains . that one cannot often readily prooure moals, lodging and horsus for riding about without feeling that he is discommoding some one or being accommodated out of charitv. It is true that at almost every little village on any of the is lands there are one or m re Chinese coffee houses, but they are poor excuses for restaurants. Now, inter-island travel has already become so largo that it would c -tainly pa-y to establish at one place at least, on each island, a comfortable couutry hotel and a livery stable, where saddle horses could be obtained. The mau who undertakes this enterprise will not only make a handsome thing out of the eventual profits, but will be regarded., bot.h bjr res ident on tho other islands and by travelers as a public benefactor. Residents will be relieved of the trouble of waiting ou travelers, and travelors will be accommodated. Tho establishment of these hotels would end to to increase travel also, and make the Islands better known. There are very few plantations on these islands that have all their lands in such convenient shape, as we find them atWaimanalo. The soil planted with cane there lies in the shape of a fan opened at right angles, with the handle towards the mountains and the outer edge skirting the sea. From the mountains the slope of the land is sq gradual that a track for the engine, used in transporting cane to the mill on the place, is laid all through the dif ferent fields. Although this season the rain has been insufficient for the production of a very fine crop of cane yet the soil is as good a the hest aqd the yield will be good. Irrigation., if water could, be obtained re-adily woild greatly increase the growth of the oane however, and Indeed it Is prob able that the manager, Hon. J, A. Cummins, will make efforts to bring a stream of water from the mountains in the course of another year. Arte sian wells on the place have so far proved a fail ure. The two that have been sunk now amount to nothing, though one of them yielded a little water for some time and then dried up. The mill on the place Las been increased in capacity, and yet the mill building has hot been enlarged; an,d a more compact well-arran,g,d structure of the kind panqot be found anywhere. For a trash house, or rather instead of one, Mr. Cumming is goin.g to, have large cribs fixed on sonqe old fla,t cars, which are to receive the trash aa it comes from the rollers and transport It out into a drying field at a little distance, and then after due time bring it to the furnaces again. All the arrangements about the mill and indeed about the whole plantation bear the impress of a thorough, practical and able man agement. Emma Square is becoming a fashionable place for promenaders and those who tako a leisurely stroll of an evening. Business men who advertise sufficiently never complain of bard times. Judicious aud ample ad vertising drives hard times away. " Is it not about time that we should havo anoth er Amateur Minstrel performance ? " is the ques tion which the public begins to ask.

" Thursday afternoon the chief officer of the Con suelo, while actively engaged in the performance of duty, accidently fell down into the hold of the vessel and hurt his ankles considerably. w ednesdav afternoon, at twa, a native woman was killed by being thrown from a horse. She had been out riding to the house of a neighbor and up on returning the animal got frightened at some thing and began to run violently. The woman was unable to hold him aud the animal succeeded iu throwing her to the ground. As she fell her head struck the ground first and with such force that the skull was broken. Accidents of this kind are somewhat frequent out tney seldom tcritui'.atc as fatally. Thursdav the nrm ol tving o, im a Co. wore arrested for having more liquor in possession than the new law allows to au individual or a firm that has no license to deal iu the stuff. The members of the firm were taken to the police station where they gave bonds to appear this morning before tho Polico Court. The liquor was taken to the station house and stowed away to await the result of legal investigations. If the parties are convicted under the law they will lose the spirits which will then bo confiscated to the Government. A certain young stalwart enterprising butcher iu this city has been cherishing for some time past a secret aud very laudable ambition, but it was so iCe a thing that he was ambitious about, that ho would permit no one to share with him a knowl edge of the matter. The whole thiug has been given away at last however, and it is ascertained that a fine house has been fitted up in a neat, cosy stylo for tho reception of a young lady who is ex pected to arrive in this city per Mariposa next week, from the distant shores of merry England. Tho public may duly expect the announcement of the marriage. On the Coast at the present time, there are fra- ' ternal meeting and conclaves of an unusually in teresting and agreeable ki There seems to bo a general feeling of amity and reciprocal humanity among the members of fraternal societies and this finds expression in all possibles public demonstra tions of social good will and brotherly kindness. It is hoped that the influence of these meetings and conclaves on the Coast may be felt iu due timo in Honolulu and, not only among members of any par ticular organized society but among the whole peo ple, tend to allay personal differences, so that neigh bors may live more agreeably together and petty discord tic unknown. The spirit of the religious press in America shows a rapid advance of what was called skepticism on ly a year ago, but what is now strangely enough denominated as the true and progressive faith. Tho tendency of the new religion for new it certainly is may be considered healthful and indicative of actual progress from myth, superstition and all the follies that used to be considered orthodox, to ward the broad grounds of reason based upon what is observed and experienced in this modern world. People are beginning to go to church no longer for the purpose of repeating stale prayers or hearing, or perhaps sleeping over, dull sermons. The pub lic is attracted to places of worship only by the in dependent ability of the preacher. There appear in the Australian Sugar Planter of a late date, an excellent account of the planta tion and mills owned by Colonel Spreckels on Maui aud known as- Spreckelsville. This artiolc is pre faced by a description ed" Kahului and Captain Ho brou's line uf railway and tho whole sketch gives a very good aud aocurate idea of the town, railway and plantation, which are certainly so creditable to Hawaiian industry and enterprise. It is grati fying to see that the world abroad has acknowl edged very generally the greatness of what may be truly considered one of the most extensive individ ual industral enterprises in the world the planta tion and mills at prcckelsyillo, Robert William. Wilcox one of the sous of Ha waii, now in Italy studying at tho military acade my at Tarin, is spoken of by Ihe Caffaro, a leading paper published in that city, in terms of unquali fied praise. It is mentioned that he has recently passed successfully an examination and been pro moted, tq a. higher- grade in the academy. Tho fact is als,u noted, that Mr. Wiloox was formerly a Rep resentative in tho National Legislature of tho Ha waiian Kingdom. It is gratifying to hear the pro gross of the nation's wards sent abroad to acquire knowledge for the public good ami Mr. Wilcox is so honorably mentioned in tho foreign press that we doubt not he will finish his course with highest honors aud, returning to his native laud, serve his race with distinction and fidelity. The advantage of a triple effect in a properly constructed and thoroughly equippod augar mill seems to be that the process of evaporating can be carried on with loss cost of fucd and far more rap idly than with a double effect. At several mills on these islands all the steam required to carry on the work of sugar making, is generated with the use of only the trash for fuel. And with the aid of a triple effect it is not unreasonable to suppose that this result could, he everywhere attained. Severel mills in the Kingdom are consum ing con siderable coal which will in the course of a very short time cost enough to pay for a triple effect. Where triple effects are now in use they are giving the highest satisfaction,, and a judicious manage ment will find upon investigation that they are a great saving often iu comparison with a double or single affect. The alty is now provided with a very efficient aud valuable police force, which entirely responds to the demands of the city. There is no town in tho world equal in size to Honolulu, that can boast such freedom from lawlessness and crime a our capital can always claim. Comparatively speaking there are few criminals in the city and but few law breakers, but through tho uniform vigilaiiooof the police these offenders are promptly apprehended and brought tq just too. Iu patrolinat, the city the policeman are always courteous and yet wide awake. At night they form a most vigilant guard against a conflagration. In the few the oases wht re tires haye broken out of late they have turned in the first alarms to arouse the fire department. The present effective condition of the force is largely d.ue to the exertions of Marshal Parke ably sec onded, hy his subordinates, hut no small share of credit is due to the individual policemen them selves. The frightful loss of life occasioned by the recent earthquake in the island of Ischia, is partially at tributable to the fact that many buildings in the town of Casamicciola were built of stone or brick and were several stories high, sa that when the shock came they fell $wu with a terrible crash destroying all who were within them or near by. N,ow, although we have not had a bad earthquake n these islands for a very long time, there are oc casional subterranean rumblings hoard and felt too on Hawaii, and we are not very far from a liv ing fountain kept in perpetual action by those cen tral forces whioh are supposed to cause all convul sions of the earth's surface. Consequently it is wise of those who build not to raise the walls of their structures too high. Indeed this is probably one consideration which has tended to make the buudinsa in the city unifonnally low in corn pari - son with the business structures in some foi cign cities. Rumors are rife as they always arc, but lie wl o is "fooled" by them is not wise. It seems to be the rule uow-a-days that lain shall fall at least once iu every twenty-four h mr-.

Now t'i m cir cumstances seem commonplace euoii ;'i I it 1 1 v- wero deemed of sufficient interest to warrant care ful narration, yet wo venture to say that a similar instance of remarkable constancy, if it em I, call ed such, came under our observation iu Havaii, where the parties now reside. We forbear from giving naincK, but will venture to say that nnyon.- visiting Kauai and searching for one of th mo t beautiful, wcll-iiatchi;dj'iung couples in tic King dom can Igurn from them a story of mont romantic and pleasant intercut with wlucli the t.tl) or o tr foreign contemporary could not be compared. The place ou tho windward side of Oahu, who It was formerly known as Ahuimanu College, has been converted into a fine milch ranch'; by Mr. Henry Macfarlane. It is one of tho prettiest lace on this island. If there was a good carriage t oad over the Pali, it would lio visited not a littlo by Mo town peoplo in search of rural plcasaro sud health. Tho building of tho ranch aro very beautifully situated right under a bifty, abrupt mountain. There is a homeliko air about the pi aco that would make an old New Yorker think of some of the dwell ing places of dairy farmers in tho ocntral portion of York state. Mr. Lowell, tho manager of tlm place, is, we Ixdievo, a native of New Yoi k Male, and has lieeu only a short time in Hawaii. He i a thoroughly good genial gentloman and a splen did dairyman. Since ho has been ou the place a large barn has been built in regular eastern style, now improved broods of cattle havo been introduc ed and many other minor steps takon toward mal, -ing the ranch a model ono, and creditable alike t the owner, manager, and this country. Iu comparison with the size of this country and the numljer of its inhabitants it is probable that as many of our citizens have travelled and are now in foreign lands as there arc travelers of any other nationality away from their uatiyo lands. Th statistics of the late census takon in the United States prove this beyond dispute And it is nat ural that the citizens of a country situated in mid occru should bo intimately acquainted with the peculiarities and distinguishing characteristics of other land, tho inhabitants of which aro ever coming and going to and from this little Island Kingdom. One of the most interesting instances of native travel and residence abroad came to light yesterday. A native man by tho name of Kamanu hauna, who was born at Kailua, on this island, and who left this country as a sailor during tie. reign of Kamchaueha HI, about the year 1H.V), re turned to hi native land after an absotico of over thirty years on board the vessel Martha Hideout. This man has been in many parts of the world, having for nearly ten years, kincc his departure from home, followed the calling of a sador. He comes now directly from Tahiti, where ho livi-l some years, and where he was married and happi ly settled for a long timo. But a short time ag his wife died, and as ho had no children. Lu yielded to a desire to return to tho place of Uis birth, au l shipped as a sailor ou board tlvo Martlia hideout. The change which has altered almost everythine about this city ainoe he left here, makes a deep im pression upon him and and he expresses tho utmost delight and satisfaction in feeling that he is ouci more within the boundaries of the land whei. he was born.
