The following letter was yesterday addressed to the owners of the Mains, Messrs. Ch ip.n in 4 Co., by the Chief Eagiueer Cotton and bis assistant J. L. Uutherford: S. S. Madras, Sept. 23, ISSJ. Gnrusm: During the time that Captain Bradley was in command of this ship he inform ed me that he would do all the correspondence with the owners. Couseipieutly there has never been any co:um mie i:i J i i -teeu us; bat after the late affair at S.iu Frauciseo we think you ought to hear our version of the case. Iu the rst place BradleT' tyrauuy begin on leaving Jntrerp j.jst after he tok ejiuuin l of the Madradi At that ti:nj he dislac ite 1 the wrist uf the steward, au I oth-risi kua 'ked hi.n aboat and m iltreated him. Tin pirtialty dis abltxl man was kept oa deck at hard wjrk with one hand all the time the other was in a tiling. Bradley told us that he intended to keep him at that work natil tha ship should arrive in Siugi pore, but t'ae mm got ou shore after a lot of trouble at Milt i, ial tui migistrau there order ed him t& b dischirged. Tue next inau he pounced npon was the secoud ia ite, at Hong kong. When Bradley drove this otlijer out of the ship, the crew cam s iu for their share aud openly mutinied. They canie aft armed with Dives and n.arlindipikes for the purpj.se of kill tg the Captaiu. Cja that occasion we (the 'su bordinate officer and engineers) ull turned out with oar revolvers aa 1 kept them back uutil the police came aad arrestel them.

With regard to bis attack on the first mate at San Francisco, he boasted in Portland of what he was going to do, and also told Rutherford and myself that same day he (Bradly) was going to work him (the first mate) ont of the ship, but we never thought that he was going to black both of the mate' eyes, cut and bruise him to such an extent that he wus not recoguiza ble and then knock some of bis teeth out with his (Bradley's) Ixjots when the mate was down. Yet all this occurred before the pilot Irft tin- ship off the Golden Gate. I asked the Captain to take the wonnded man back, but he refused, yet we were all determined not to see au3 more erne Ity. There was plenty of time that night to have stttl-d the whole thtug, but instead oi doing that the next morniug be stopped our food and water and refused to let a note go ashore to the British Consul by a pilot boat. - mm We remain your tbedieut servauts, W.

The opening of the foreign exhibition took place yesterday in the bnilding of the Massachusetts Charitable Me chanics' Association. Many persons of foreigu nationality were present, besides members of the State and city governments. The president of the Executive Committee, Nathaniel J. Bradlie, escorted upon the platform Ilev. E. A. Hortou, of the Second Church, who offered the opening prayer. Some fifty prominent persons followed Bradlie upon the platforui, among them the Secretary of the Navy, Chandler. The eihi bitiou was iu a much more advanced state than anticipated Saturday, although there was cou sidirablc vacant floor space. The exhibitions already set up gave the floor and galleries a bright and attractive appearance. Mayor Palmer, iu his address, fays the time and place of exhibition were peculiarly appropriate. On the three-billed city of . II j.stou industrial art bad found a uurserv and music a home. Boston had hud many things uui iue, aud thi festival of industry and art was uot the least of them. The exhibition was a Kindergarteu of the uatious. Crowned beads were present, for labor, in dustry aud art were the crowned hc-a l.s of the nineteenth ceutury. Hon. Maishal P. Wilder, the oldest merchant iu active business iu Bos ton, spoke briefly. LeBarraue of Pauama spok in his native tongue, acknowledging the obliga tions to Bostou. Messrs. Caubeit of Paris, Katzman of Austria, aud Carter of Hawaii, also made addresses. Nathaniel J. Bradlie alluded to signing the treaty of peace which ended the war with Great Britain, September 3d, aud the grand results which were achieved iu the pat one hundred years. John Jay, Caarlcs Francis Adams, Jr., Secretary Chandler, ex-Governor Rice and Lieutenant-Governor Ames were also speakers. Priucess Louise has a painting on ex hibition. AMU'.IKU Ao.-oCNr.

The Japanese representative sp ke of the great pleasure it gave him t i hi present at au exhi bition where g-nius aud works of urt and scieuce, as well as tiie industries of two oppjsitu ends of the world, were to be stood side by side. He referred to the promises made iu his owu country of late, as well as of whit both coun tries bad learned from each other iu the past, aud the bonds of sympathy aud friendship that existed bet wcji thctu at present. Lo Wen Shaich, Commissioner f..m China, next spoke, and in short remarks thanked the Americans f or ' the receptieu given him. an 1 tho iuiercst they took in bis country and its products. Pierce spoke for the Saudwich Islauds. He sa id that although bo represeuted probably the sm illest of nations yet he spoke for the most important section in the commercial sense, as the Sand wich Islauds marked the extre iu western linii of Auitricau civilization. In ail industries iu which Americans aie competitors, the S indwich Islands was an important factor, aud her exhibit could but be interesting, as it would enlighten many heretofore unacquainted with her worth as to her real resources and importance in the world of commerce aud trade.

The military authorities at Ver sailles are at present ex tmiuiiig the iuveutiou of Captain Del iuiiy, who, if he does not make two ears of corn or grass grow where ouly one grew before, claims to make three balls fired frora the Gras rifle do three tiniis iujij execu tion than the present single bill.

Bat if the enemy possess a real repetition rifle, employing also the divisible cartridge of three balls, he will have uiue chances against thiee before his adversary. M. de Lesseps is actively employed on his plaus for the secoii I canal. He will corumeuco operations in November, as soon us he shall have the consent of tho sharehold rs. He claims to have bro.i ht his comressioa A-ithin the high sphere of politics, and thinks of demand ing the prohibition not only against the cutting, of another caual across the Isthmus by a second company, but also against a second inter-marine ditch through Egypt. The rumor is that the Khedive intends making a second canal himself, and will iuvite tenders urbi ef orlil. The dangerous signals k ep flying about the cholera. The French a.e not pleased that all the world does uot iu 1 rse their theories about the epidemic. They abuse Euglaud less, as she turns an adder's ear to the till talk. Dr. Bouchardat h.s shown that while in 1S3 2 cholera made vioti ns iu the capital, it sensibly dimiuishod during the five subsequent invasions, till, iu 1S73, the last, the total deaths were but 8'H. At this rate of diminution, tho epidemic ought to leave no trace this time. But we have over a worse malady typhoid fever as peculiar to Paris as cholera is to India.

Here is what comes borne to every niau's business aud bosom to make gold or silver out of copper aud mercury. Take uiue salamanders, one pound of of mercury, and add goats' milk ; seal up the i jar, bury it four weeks iu a manure heap ; then examine, and the residue will be precious metal. A startling society is iu course of formation- that for promoting emigration to the French colonies. Nothiug of the kind has ever existed, so that the ideo takes one's breath away. All that is required is adherents to make it a success. Excepting officials who must go, a Peter the Her mit could prevail upon young France to quit his dominies, aud his whist ; his gam3 of piquet, his absinthe, his lotus life of the cafes, for Al geria or Tuuis. Why then expect hi u to turn a Robinson Crusoe in Attain, Madagascar, or the Co-go ? The Aiiti-Semetique is a weekly journal, pub lished to show that the Jews are the caise of all bumau woe, ttud that the world will never be right till the race be as extinct as the dodo. All this is not in harmony with the toleration prin ciples of 17;9. The approach of the millennium will be still further it appears acotlerated, by the extirpation of the English. This task is re served for France by the a.loptiou of Lettres de Marque, aud the use of electricity instead of eoal. The Jews auJ ye English relegated to limbo. France will devote all her euergies (i) to Algeria, with the view of auuexiag Africa. For the future, officers after their daily work is over, will have the right to put aside their uniform and don private clothes. Up till now that privilege was arbitrary aud rested on the Colouel's humor. It was considered that when iu citizen costume, the wearer might get himself up in an ecc.utric or uubecomiug styie. Then the majority of the officers are far from being rich. It is odd that the officers of the regular army should be iu such a hurry to qqit their red pauta'uous and blue tunic, when the militia and volunteers are so eager to strut in the uniform, The latter has beeu of late so re lace 1 to the last expression of plainness, as to be out forward as the cause why the nou-co:nmissi jued officers re fuse to re-engage. Several journals deplore the liberty eouceded, as tending to the destruction 1 of the military spirit of the uitiou. The two deputies accused of receiving a bribe of 16.000 fr for the use of their parliamentary position to float au El Dorado, have not yet per formed mea culpa. The charge is a true bill, but the person holding the proofs, .L-e Roland, will not produce them. H-.mce no end of con jectures. If a deputy be nai.-d in a journal, be immediately challeiigi the editor. If the hon orable member be a Gambtttist, he will select the grounds of Gambetta's.

Chinese Line of Steamers Hawaiian Coinage Eades' Isthmus Railway-The ' Java Calamity. ; Now York, .SepteinbtT VtL. Tho Uom I ineicial fcuyf, under the head of Chinese murine in Cuba : Las Navtdades of New ; York, which is always well-informed in 1 regard to Spani&h aud Hispano-American 1 a flairs, publishes some information of spec- ial interest. The Chinese aie determined, it appears, to retaliate on the ostracising measures taken against them, and thus keep for themselves what foreign shippers could have made. They have created a Society of Navigation, known in the finan cial world under tho name of the China Merchants' .Steam Navigation Company. It already possesses forty vessels built in England, aud it is indirectly subsidized by the Pekin Government, which has given it a monopoly of the transportation of rice. Up to the present time the company ha limited its action to the China seas, but it is now organizing' new service to Rio Jan lero and Havana. The flag of the Celestial 10 iu pi re will soon be seen in the seas of Cuba, and it is only a question of time when it will come to New York. Washington, September 7th. There have been received at the oflke of the Director of the Mint specimens of the new silver coins ordered by the Hawaiian Govern ment. They are in denominations of one dollar, one-half dollar, one-quarter and one- eight of a dollar. All but the lat corres- j pond in weight aud fineness with United States coins of similar denominations. Tho one-eighth is equivalent in weight and fine ness to one-half of a United States quarter- dollar. All the coins contain on the ob verse side a representation of King Kala kaua, with an inscription. On the reverse is the Hawaiian coat of arms, an iuscrip tion in the Hawaiian language and the designation, of the value of the coin in English and Hawaiian. The designs of the coins were made by the engraver of the Philadelphia Mint, but the coins will be struck at San Francisco. The drawing of the design has already been accepted by the Hawaiian agent at San Francisco, and the specimens are to be forwarded to him, and, if accepted, the work of coinage will be at once begun. There are to be struck ofl $500,000 worth of one-dollar pieces, 300,000 halves, 122,000 quarters, and 75,000 eights. The Hawaiian Government will supply the bullion and will be charged with the cost of the desigus and dies, the labor of coining, the cost of the machinery, and all other expenses of coinage. Pittsburg, September 7. Captain James li. Eads, of the Mississippi Jetties fame,has been in the city several days in the interest of his several projected ship railways across the Isthmus of Panama. Pittsburg capi talists, who have subscribed liberally to the stock of the company, are enthusiastic about the success of the project. John D. Wood, one of the most extensive coal op erators in the State, said yesterday : ''The Tehautepec Railway in au assured success. It is practically uo longer debato l, nor are its advantages doubted. The entire distance is surveyed and a large force of men has been at work for some time. Captain Eads has pledged his word that the railway will be ready for the commerce of the world in four years. There will be no further appeal to congress for assistance or endorsement of the project. If American capital will uot respond, English capital, which was the means of building the Pacific railroads, holds the purse open to complete the rail way. The Hague, September 5. A Central Re lief Committee has been formed to collect s ubtcriptious for the sufferers by the Java eruption, under the presidency of the Prince of Orance. The King has formally indorsed the object of the committee. A fair will be held at Amsterdam. Great anxiety is felt in regard to the fate of the Neder aud Steamship Company's mail steamer Prince Frederick, believed to have been in the strait of Sunda at the time of the volcanic eruptions. A telegram from the Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies says that the bays within the limits of the recent volcanic dis turbance are filled with pumice-stone. The Temple of Boro Budda, in Java, the largest temple iu the East, was destroyed by fall ing rocks. The Relief Committee seut 13,000 florin to Batavia by telegraph. London, September 5,-rTh.e Standard's Amsterdam special says j The fact that the Dutch Controller at Katatiborg, Sumatra, was saved, together with his family, iudi. oates that the destruotiou Iu that quarter by the volcanic eruptions was not absolute. One Europeau bookkeeper and two natives were the ouly persons whose lives were saved. At Merak then was not a building left standiug. At Taudjung, fifty-eight miles distant, the sea suddenly rose eight feet and then fell teu feet, causing widespread de vastation in that region. Ou Wednesday nqorning Professor Da vid ou senf. a telegram to the Superintendent of the United States Coast aud Geodetic Survey at Washington, informing him that the self-registering tide gauge at Saucilito was recording earthquake waves, which were coming from some very distant region across the Pacific Ocean. These abnormal waves commenced arriving iu this buy about one o'clock A. m. of the 27th of August, but the type is not so regular as that of "pre vious earthquake waves which have been transmitted through the ocean from Japan, South America and other regions. The ear lier great waves of August 27th are about seveuty minutes between the higher crc-sts, with au jriterrjqediateand, lower crest. How ever, from. 1 y, sj. of the 27th of August the secondary crests were nearly equal to tho primary waves. The height from the bot tom of the wave to the crest reached one foot, although the majority will not aver age more than half that rise and fall. The waves continued arriving through Wednesday, but with decreased eflect. There is little doubt whatever that these waves come from the i n of Java, or J some distant place Allele the rree transmission of the wave tn rough the ocean j is interrupted by islands or sub-marine mountain chains. Whenever an earth quake wave is received from South America or Japan, the course is quite clear for its transmission, and the record is very clear and well defined, so much so that in one of the great earthquakes in South America, the reflex waves from other shores arrived here subsequently to the direct waves, and in the same order of time aud height. With a knowledge of the times of transmission, and the heights of the wave, the mathe matical physicist can determine the aver- aage depth of the ocean across aud through which the earthquake wave was propaga ted. The character of these earthquake waves is altogether different from the waves ex hibited by a "breaking bar'' or ordinary storm waves: and at the Columbia River tide gauge, formerly located at Astoria, the pilots were accustomed to consult the regis ter to ascertain the condition of the " bar" at the mouth of that river. At theSouceli- to station the condition of the bar is reveal cd at uny minute, and it is safe to say that no break or very heavy swell can occur on the bar off the Golden Gate without mak ing its own permanent record and the time of occurrence. Batavia, Aug. 27. Terrific detonations were heard yesterday evening from the vol canic island of Krakatoa. They were aud ible at Soerakrata, on the island of Java. The ashes from the volcano fell as far as Cheribon, and the flashes proceeding from it were visible in Batavia. Stones fell in a shower on Serang, which was iu total dark ness throughout the night. Batavia was nearly so, all the gaslights having been ex tinguished during the night. Communica tion with Anjier is stopped, and it is feared that there has been ti calamity there. Sev eral bridges between Anjier and Serang have been destroyed, and a village has been washed away, the rivers having overflowed their banks because of a rush of the sea in land. Krakatoa is a little island in the Strait of Sundp, which divides Java from Sumatra. Krakatoa is about seven miles long and four miles broad. Batavia is the principal port and city in Java, which is itself of vol canic origin, contains several volcanoes and has frequently suffered from earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Cheribon, a. place of 11,000 inhabitants, is on tho north coast of Java, 125 miles E. S. E. of Batavia. It contains the residence of a Dutch Governor and is a conspicuous market in the coffee and indigo trade. Anjier is a little seaport of Java on the Strait of Sunda. London, August 20.- IL is reported that Henry M. Stanley ?n? closed the Upper Congo to commerce. The Kingof Dahomy has liberated the garrison of the Portuguese fort at Whydah on condition that the place shall not be ceded to England. New York, August 29. Dispatches from Philadelphia say the famous Keely motor is at last completed. Applications for pas sage on the lirst Krely motor train for New York have already begun to pour in from all parts of the country. The final inspec tion of the machinery by the Trustees was made this forenoon, at which all the stock holders were invited to be present. Treas urer Green was exceedingly hopeful and de clared that the day of Keely's vindication was close at hand. El Paso. (Tex.) August2S.

Three months no, when a servant girl came to a Iirush-stroet family, the mistress said she desired to pot the girl in advance-on one certain little point. She and her husband belonged to fin amateur theatrical company, and in ease Jane heard any racket around the house she must not imagine that they were quarreling. They would simply be rehearsing their parts. The "play" beg.ni on the third evening of the girl's engagement. The husband, taunted bis wife with extravagance, and she said he played poker for money, aud chairs were upset and footstools kicked around, and threats were m.ide of going home to mother. Next morning the mistress said to the girl : ; Did you Lear us playing our parts in the 1 Wronged Wife' last night ?" ' Yes'm." "It was simply a rehearsal, you know ; and you mustn't think strange of my throwing a vase at my husband, and calling him a vile wretch.'' Three or four nights after that tb,e curtain went up 011 a play ca'ud ''The Jealous Hus band,'' and Jane hoard sobs, sighs, protestations, threats and exclamations. The next play wa.s entitled "Coming II nae Tight," and was mostly played ia the fr jut ball. Then followed 'Tn D-vt is of Dispair," " Threats of Di vor."e," uud " Such a Wretch," untilJane was at last tired of having a private box and being the ouly audience. The other morning she appeared in the sitting room, with l-.er ,:.t on and her bundle nnder ber arui, and said : " Please, ma'am, but I'm going this morn ing." ' What, going away ?" Yes'm." " For what rer.son ?V '.'.Please, lua'm, but I'm tired of tragedy. I'm a girl as naturally lik-.-s to see hngging and kiss ing and love-making on the stage, and when Marks, the lawyer, cornea in on the what-do-you-call-it, I'm sure to be tickled to death. I think I'll try some family where they rehearse comedy and LaTe a deal of kissing, and perhaps I may come in as a supe and get a small share of it for myself. American paper. WHOLE NO. 1426.

In every city of any considerable size there arc some eccentric characters, which are frequently not to be seen in public, only on occasions of some great popular festivals or celebrations, or in sonic of the by-paths of the town. But iu Honolulu al most every Saturday night any one who Is curious to see a motley and wonderful variety of human character, not perhaps in Its bj.st or most endura ble aspects, but at least in all its reality, should stroll about tho streets for au hour or so letweeii beven and ten o'clock. Lust Saturday night there was an unusually large mass of people of all grades in the business portions of the city, aud especially in the Chinese quarter, and ou Fort, Nuuami and Hotel streets below Deretauia during a great por tion of the evening. Just before nightfall a good ly number of carriages began to pass to uud from stores along Fort street. Sonic fair customers made purchases at Lycau A Johnson's or bought aome article at Magma's : others called at Fishel's large establishment for millinery trifles, and still others resorted to Hart Brother's lea Cream Par lors to discuss the l itest ohoio.3 bits of " rumor" over a glass of delicious "vanilla" or "strawber ry." Among the female portion of these variously employed corners and gojrs, mviy wore dressed with elegance aul were pjssibly "out to kill." Some were accompanied by young gentlemen friends or relations. All were very orderly and in the main very jolly. As the hours ran by the more sober and discreet people- of all descriptions began to retire to their homes and the wild, frolicsome element began to dominate. Now and then a car riage would pass by crowded with young roister?, singing some familiar ditty to the accompaniment of a guitar. Men, women aud children began act ing as if they had lost something a little later 011. One old lady with one eye and a frightful face, was selling leis in front of t!ia Empire, but her custom ers were few and she suddenly closed out business by gathcriug up her m-TCaau li.se iu one hand and bolting olTat a s uirt picj twarU King street. A policeman, who saw her run. thought that some one had stolen her leis and that she was pursuing him, so he blew his whistle and started in thedircc tiou of the old woman, whom he overtook iu the neighborhood of Castle &, Cooke's store, where she had gone to "reflect iu solitule wh-jrj fe.v in trude," Iu several places in the precincts of Chi natown a crowd gathered around some loud orators and blocked the sidewalks. Among these were sail ors who had taken a dram too much, aud residents inteut on ' having a good time." Just as they got well absorbed iu discussion, Onicer Marcos came around and officially vetoed further consideration ofthe questions being debated. The crowd gradu ally dispersed iu every direction, som. seeking dark and dirty lines, and others returning to tol erably neat and comfortable homes. By midnight all the streets were quit3 still and deserted. All the curious specimens of humanity ; all tho mon strosities, and some almost shapeless creatures that had been socu among tho crowd tinder the shadow oi night, had disappeared and then there came forth, amid universal silence and darkness, from a residence on Bjrc-Unia street, an astonish ing object of wonderful aspjet. In the deep dark ness it seemed to be a moon, slightly obscured, and moving about 5 feet, 7 inches from theeaj th's sur face. But as it drew n,-ar lOi Port street, and seemed about to enter the building, a policeman ventured, n,ear enough to the wonderful phenomo uoii to ascertaiu that it was only a red head of hair that had "all the seeming of a moon" a red head, of hair belonging to a red-whiskered ghou.h whoc hand was fixed upon his heart, an, attitude of pitiable despair, as if endeavoring to quench the il ames of ranccx and woe, that must cruelly smoul der in his breast forever, for he is a fallen angel and wears an eternal curse that must make him ever hate even himself and his brother man.
