Extract from Letter of 14 July, 1873, to His Ex. Mr. H. A. P. Carter. I hav now to request that you will inform His Wi. the Chinese Minister f this l:edutiou" (Cah inet Ues iliitiou of l'lth), and also of the terms as hereinafter statvd on which a partial resumption of Chinese immigration will lx; allo-.ved. Yo'ir Ex . ellency will alv oblige lao by explaining to Mr. iii ii -J Tsao Ju thtt this resolution indicates no hauge of poliey on the part of this Government. The resolution of April It!i was intended to met t jiii emergency which api'ars to hj past, and a sour planters are still in need of a certain number of Chine- lalnrer.s. maiuly to replace those whose terms are expiring, and who are, in considerable numbers returning t their native land, permis sion iagivvii to well establisheil steamship compa nies, faborably known to the Government for their orderly conduct of the passenger service, for the cleanliness of their ships, anil for their care ad to sanitary regulations, also as always carrying cfli rient medical otVioers, whose agent have given as anranoe t the Government that they are in a posi tion to m-euro a fair percentage of female immi grants, to bring here the liui'tcd nuuibcx of COO passengers every three months, pending the pro grss of the negotiations you have initiated with Hi Ex. for the purpjse of securing to m a control cf the emigration from China to these Islands. I hav by this mail authorized our Consul Gen eral at Hongkong to grant permission to the Iaci ric Mail Steamship Co., and the Oriental and Oc-a-ideatal Mteamship Co, (thoirs being the only es tablished line of uteamers at present in the trade) to convey Chinese passenger from the port of Hongkong to these Island in nnmbsr not exceed ing COO within any three months." HoxoLtLC, August 19, 1943. Miasm. U. HatXFELD X Co. Gextlcxe.v : I Itavo the Loner to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of Tusterday's date in which you ask that the immigration from Japan to these Island miy tie abjected to the same restriction in favor of the steamship companies you represeut a exist at the present time in regard to Chinese immigrants, and inquire for how lonx & period the Government will allow those companies to bring Chinese and Ja panese passenger to these island. In reply to the latter of these enquiries, I beg to lay that though, by order of Hi Majesty's Gov ernment, this department has made it known that A limited Chinese immigration will be permitted, the steamer of Paciiio Mail Steamship Company and of the Occidental and Oriental Company have keen designated a the only mean of conveyance by which Chinese coolie may be brought here; the ttorernnient U not in a position to fix any deduite time daring which such an arrangement shall last. I can however give yon tho assurance that unless ome emergency, at present entirely unforeseen, should arise no change will be made in the arrange ment referred to without reasonable warning be ing given to yon. So far a I can judge the per mission j as t granted is likely to remain in force far some time to come if the immigration taking (lace under it bo conducted in the manner, and with the discretion which the Government ha rea son to expect. In regard to Japanese immigrants, I ha v.? to say that this Government ha no emigration conrcn t.ou with Japan, and i unable to give you any as surance on the subject. If any passengers ohould eek this Kingdom from Japanese ports the Gov ernment would certainly be glad that they should be brought here by vessels of the class which the Pacific Mail Steamship Co. and the Occidental and Oriental Co. are running whose superior accommo dation and admirable supervision have led to their being accorded the exclusive privilege of carrying Chinese coolies to this country. I Lave the honor to be, gentlemen, your most obedient servant, (Signed? : WALTEK M. GIBSOX, Minister of Foreign Affairs. List of Licenses Expiring in the Month of September, 1883.

Interior Department, Sipteiub-.T 13th, 1S93. septlowot e Crapes and Crape liltare. Much Inn b.-en written from time to time regard ing "grapes and grap.' culture on these Islands. In a nnmlier of instauecs the vine has been intro ilnee.l he-re and nro.vd verv fruitful, yet still we have nothing like what might be called a largo vineyard. There are some localities where no doubt Miperior grapes cm be raised, at a profit that ouiit t be quit j s iti-ifiUHv'. Tin fruit iu the market here would c omuainl a 1 irge prico and jf maailfacture 1 into wiue would doubtless prove remunerative. There is a convention of vinticult Ujists iio.v iu s-is-uou on the C .st. Tii-ey have for some days been engaged in discussing the host methods of growing grapes, making wine et ceterit. In thu hope of awakening renewed interest iu this industry we extract the following from uu address delivered before the vintie.ulturists' convention by Mr. Wet more who said : That it was a most im portant matter t adopt a classification of grapes iuto groups, to kuo.v which vines should bo plant ed in certain localities. Every part of Europe is kuown for a particular kind of wine. Ho describe vtl the various kinds of vines found in different parts of Europe. The best wine are iu ide between Bordeaux and the Uliiue, because the growers never. oper-ripeii their grapes. When people un derstand fermentation thoroughly they will get just as v;oot a wine iu the South as iu tho North. Sherry, for instance, cannot be transported or bot tled. It has first to be fortified. Spanish wines can only be made iu winter, because they do not know how to ferment them. Iu California the cli mate is spoiling most of our vinos. They get dis eased. In Franco they have great trouble iu fer mentation as well as iu planting their grapes, as they generally turn bitter. About the matter of grouping vines. Bordeaux groups will not do well every year in this State, but they will give tine color in bottom lauds. Where t!u infaudel fails try Malbee and it will give splendid color. The land adapted to Kie-iliug is limited to a small part of California. The Sauterne is suited everywhere. We h ivo but very fe v pli-ees iu our State to make Ziiifandel. Tiiu best locality is w'.iere- tho foe;s are the heaviest. I'.iJ wi in of tho south of Franco are best adapted for most pu ts of our State. I'ici for Pugilism. The staid and rather straightlaced Now England journal, the Lowell Citizen, has declared iu favor of p igilism as a moral agent iu the United States and enters its plea iu b -half of the manly art as follows : Thoic is nine i of the unfavorable criti cism upjii the art of self-defend, which has beeu carried to -such .i d "gree of perfection by many of the jr i nt le it a i 1 s ie eisfiil b jx-ers of th j pres ent time, that is uncalled for and undeserved, and which the sec jud sober thought of cjutemplativo people should repudiate. Of course there are many of the attendant features of the present methods of conducting those sorts of exhibitions that aro repulsive to well-iueaiiing individuals, and that have an injurious effect up u the general welfare of society. This part should bs, as in most cities, unqualifiedly condemned. But if the complete ness to which tlie Boston representative of fistic culture has carried himself in the last few years and even if tho financial value of such a high de gree of physical ueuouiplishineut will operate to banish that bane of modern Atncrioan life, the pocket pistol, from tho highways and byways of the c iniuunity, and teach men to roly more, for le dress of personal grievances, upon those less harm ful woap -ns that nature furnishes to all her chil dren, it would then appear that the extraordinary performances of the present head of the science of " slugging " would li t b without compensating results iu their iiilluenee upon the public morals Alfonso, kins of Spain. Many article have recently beon .published in American papers -regarding His Majesty the Kins of Spain. On account of some trifling incident, it was reported that the King and Queen did not agree well together but this does not appear to ha the fact. In a description of his personal habits and accomplishments it is said that "His Majesty is fond of riding, of hunting, of shooting, of fishing and outdoor exercises. Skiti.ig aad djer stalking in winter, rowing, lawn tenuis and croquet iu sum mer have no more ardent amateur than the former Cadet Itoyal of Sandhurst. Next to ethletic sports Hie King is said t be fou l of conversation when he can shako off the cares State and gather round him a few c impanions of his own ago, or even greater statesmen; and his bold, quick repartee, his pleasant, affable manners, the wide range of his reading, his constant study of Euro pea u politics and literature makes foreigners and natives wonder how he can finl leisure hours for so much intellectual and physical activity. His older servants say he resembles iu soma points his graudf itkur, Ferdinand VII., b it ho harbors lib eral an I tolerant ideas iu religion and in politics more resembling his great ancestor, Charles III. Of c-jurs, he would bo neither a Bourbon nor a Spaniard his verv political adversaries would charge him with insincerity if he were not like "tho first gcntlemait" of his realm, to.uso the old English expression, gallant and courteous to the fair e x." Mr. Strips' Latest Picture. Mr. Ellis has purchased the latest production of Mr. Strong's brush, and now the painting is on ex hibition at the store of Messrs. Lycau t Johnson. The picture represents a native launching his ca noe ou a sandy beach. Iu the distance mountain, sea and sky mergo together. There are a few co coanut trees along the margin of the sea near the foothills represented. In point of execution there can be no fault found with the painting which is, as an artistic work, quito exquisite. The' concep tion, too, is natural and in every respect in ac cord with nature. it Kaaeohf. Mr. Hose the manager and proprietor of the plantation at Kaueohe, was in the city Monday. He has just finished putting iu cane for the season and reports his crops as looking fine. The Kaueo he plantation has been very judioiously managed bv Mr. K ose. Although there is considerable more laud belonging to the plaoe, which might be plant ed, the capacity of the mill is limited and it is not deemed best to get new machinery until we are sure of a perpetuity of the existing treaty with the United State. If the treaty is renewed, however, it is probable that many improvements will be made on this place. Mashrm Polgen. A little half white girl at Haualci, Kauai, was recently poisoned and came very near dying from ahe effects of eating raw mushrooms with salt. It was at first thought, when she was taken sick.that tke had eaten something that resembled a mush room, but which was in reality some poison plant like what is sometimes called a "toad stool." but upon examination of the roots of the vegetable sub stances which she ate. those competent to judge de clared them genuine mushrooms. It is not gener ally presumed that mushrooms have any prison ous properties but M. Dupetit a French chetnit states iu a paper recently read before .b.e Academy of Sciences iu Paris "that he found a poiso.ions siibitanea iu all uncooked nt ishroom. fio-e usually eaten affording no oxeeptio.i. Thus the fresh sap of the Boletus edulis (a large leathery fungus commonly eaten in France, but rarely in this country), administered to rabbits, guinea pigs and rats by sulcutaneous injection caused their death. The same with many other kinds that are eaten in Frauce. When, however, this sap was raised to the temperature or bailing its pois onous properties disappeared, and this alteration was shown to be a result of chemical change, not of the destruction of microbes or living germs of any kind. This appears to be a subject worth much further investigation in this country. We rejeet a great amount of nutritious and delicious food that is highly prized by other nations, uuder the supposition that it is poisonous. It has been stated that in Uiui3 nearly all species of fungi are brought to market as food, with the exception of that one which alone we regard as edible, and some writers have explained this by-supposing that dif ference of climate produce differeiicjs of proper ties. Dr. Badhaiu, who devoted himself to this subject with heroic courage' and devotion, enu merate no lesa th it forty-eight different species, usually rejected as poisonous "to id stools," which he has proved to be perfectly wholesome and mostly delicious, his method of testing being sim ply that of ou ting them himself. But if I under stand him rightly he always cooked them, while I have seen farm laborers and other country people pick mushrooms and ate them raw. It may be there fore that all tho British prejudices against the forty-seven species that Dr. 1'adham enjoyed so heartily have arisen from this practice of eating raw fungi, and the experiments that I think desir able are a series of comparisons between the action of each of tho questionable or questioned species in the raw and in the cooked condition. The Park. . Some laborers have beeu engaged iu clearing up and burning some of the trash, dead bushes, etc., in the vacinity of Kapiolani Park, near the new residonce in course of construction by Mr. Nolte. And in several other plaoe around the park groat improvements of all kinds are needed. Tho Park is splendidly located and it is worth while to make its environments' lovely. . Nothing adds more to the beauty of a city than a large park and in a country liko this, where the finest tropical trees and shrubs, can be planted with success, a park of surpassing lovliness may bo readily made n source of great pleasure to residents as a place of occasion al resort. The city of Rio Janeiro, Brazil, situated where the climate is quite as tropical as it is here, there is one. of the finest parks in the world and strangers who have visited that city, declare that the last thing thoy will ever forget about the grand Brazilian capital will cctainly bo the private par terres and public parks. In the city of New York, where winter for almost half the year closes the book of vegetable nature, an immense sum of mon ey has beeu spent to beautify what is known as Central Park. This is a very lovely place in sum mer with its artificial lakes, caves, terraces, goat carriages and swings, ball and croquet grounds and labariuths of verdure with rustic walks, carriage ways and here atid there a statue of some world famous hero. This park is not only considered a source of delight to the inhabitants of the city but also a source of health. If other great cities in the world find so many reasons for making fine parks, surely Honolulu cannot excuse herself if she ne glect to improve her natural advantages. 1 Uerramfnd.ition. As the Uumauu Society in this city is fully equipped with an executive officer wo expect to see it begin active operations forthwith and would only suggest, that whoreas our association is new it may be able to learn something from the example of older institutions of a similar kind abroad. A society for the prevention of cruelty to animals in tho States recommend the following gentle meth ods of treating a balky horse, which we commend o the patieut consideration of Agent Mehrtous: 1. Pat tho horse upon the neck, examine the harness carefully, first ou one side and then on the other, speak encouragingly while doing so, then jump into the wagon and give the word go; gener ally he will obey. . A teamster in Maine says ho can start the worst balky horse by taking him out of the shafts and making him go round in a circle. If the first dance of this kind docs not cure him, the second will be sure to do it. 3. To cure a balky horse simply place your hand over the horse's nose and shut off the wind till ho wants to go: then let him go. The brains of a horse seem to entertain but one idea at a time; thus continued whipping only confirms his stub born resolve. If you can by any means give him a new subject to think of, you will have no trouble in starting him. A simple remedy is to take a couple of turns of stout twine around the fore leg, just below the knee, and tie in a bow knot. At the first check he will go "dancing off; and after go ing a short distance you can get out and remove the string to prevent injury in your further drive. Uermlt in 1U. Near what is called South Point in the District of Kau, Hawaii, there is a native hale pi I i am ong the lava rocks not from the ocean shore, which is occupied by a very elderly and weak appearing man who is said to be the only person that knows where the bones of certain ancient chieftains are hidden. For some distance around this venerable man's wretched residence there are no taro patches and very little vegetation of any kind, and we won dered how human life could be sustained by the helpless old native in such a sterile locality, but upon inquiring among residents of a village at some distance learned that he had a son that brought him poi once or twice a week. The old man lives the life of a hermi t to all intents and purposes.
