Saturday Mr. Robert Moore began putting up the great iron vaults in tho new Campbsll block, CJiucr of Merchant aud Fort streets. The vaults are made of large pieces of steel put together with bolts and rivets aud are about eight feet high by eight feet long aud wide. This steel plaiting is to bo covered by a thick wall of brick outside, through which a largo fireproof iron door of Messrs. Ray mond and Wilshire's make will form the only opening.

The life-sized oil portrait of the late Mrs. Bush, executed by the artist Mr. Strong, aud now at tho business establishment of Messrs. Lycan Jc John- sou will, we believe, take rank among the finest pro ductions of the kiud in point of artistic execution. Tho painting has really not attracted as much at tention a it merits deserve. The artist has a light to be proud of many of his superb aud finish ed productions, and certainly Hawaii owes not a little to Mr. Strong' illustration of its grand scenery, which is a most attractive feature of this land, but the service of preserving a faithful like ness of individuals tliat were well known through out the community aud remarkable for personal qualities cannot bo considered less deserving of public acknowledgement. The three trash houses near the mill at Uaiku Plantation were consumed by fire on the night of the 20th iust. From the manner iu which the flames burst out the tire is supposed to be the work of an incendiary, but no one iu particular is, as yet, suspected of the deed. C jiniderable exertion wa required t prevent the flames from s, reading to neighboring buildings, but all hands hurried out aud worked with a will, and the ravages of the fire were confined to the three trash houses which were partially filled with dry trash, and near together, so that it was quite impossible to save either of them when the tire once got undjr aoui.! head.vay.

And now the echo of their splendid mu sical achievement-, aft r having flashed around the globe come back agaiu to Hawaii. Through the courtesy of Mr Kohn we have obtaiued the trans lation of au article which recently appeared iu the Tageblatt, one of the leading daily papers of the great German capital, Berlin. This papar states that a report ha reached Germany to the effect that the Royal Hawaiian Band, then in San Fran cisco, would visit Europe and discoftrsa music in the Royal Palace at Berlin, and continuing its comment at some length tho Tagehlai t goes on to say that the"IIawaiiau Bau 1 has probably no supe rior on earth. It has been admirably trained, aud organized by a sou of the '-Fatherland" with such judgment and taste that Germany too wants to claim some share of the glory whieh the eminent Hawaiian musician have won. The strains which this Band discourse are most delicious and har monious, and would please the most critical and fastidious ear of refined Europeans." All but one of the crew of the Martha Rideout have run away. The Madras is discharging her Honolulu freight very rapidly. Work on the brick superstructure of the new li brary building has begun. The Courser, Colby master, left Tort Blakely for Honolulu, August 20th, with lumber. The steamer Lehua has commenced building some officers' quarters on her hurricane deck. The C. O.

Purvis, proprietor of the Paciflc Su ! gar Mill aud Plantation at Kukuihaele, Hawaii, who arrived in this city per Zealandia, after hav I ing completed a tour around the world, brings sev- en mongooses from India and Africa, and will in ' troduce them on his place on Hawaii. Mr. Purvis has had an opportunity of observing just what the ! mongoose will do in its native home, and says ' that it will not molest poultry or come about the premises whore people live to disturb anything, but has a perfectly insatiable appetite for killing rats. These are the first mongooses ever brought to thee Islands and in all probability they will increase rapidly and prove very useful in destroying all kinds of small vermin. Tuesday a horse with a pack saddle on his back got loose in th neighborhood of Horn's bakery, and started to run up Hotel street in the direction of WaiUiki. and when apposite the Fashion Stables the animal, at full speed, dashed into a private car riage belonging to Colonel Spreckels, and bent the hind axletree so badly that one of the wheels was turned completely under the vehicle, besides doing other damage. After the collision the horse ran up Union street, and was there captured by the po lice who took him down to the Station House. It is the custom of some parties who bring vegetables bananas, etc., into the city to market on pack hor ses, to drive them through the streets in a herd wih frequently nothing to prevent one or all of them from breaking away aud dashing through the streets. The practice ought iq be stopped. Captain Isaah Bray at one time commander of tho Morniug Star in au article addressed to young people and published in the Missionary Herald says: "Endeavor to picture in your mind the vast Pacific Ocean, and here aud there in it an island rising out of the expanse of water, app?ariug only a spect, yet crowded with human beings. Can you conceive the ignorance of creatures thus situated? They havo not begun even to comprehend that there is any other laud' or that there arc other people than their own. They know no other ob ject in living than to gratify each one himself. The results of such a life are darkness, degrada tion, war, and misery' The Captain doubtless means well by the above but he ought to bo a lit tle moro explicit in hi mode of expression when he writes about islands in the Pacific else he may create a wrong impression in the minds of youth ful readers. Our readers may not have noticed the haze which has surrounded the sun during tho day for a week or so past and we call attention to the sin gular phenomenon as it will probably be observa ble to-day. It seems to be a sort of mist or thin cloud which follows the sun from its rising to its setiug. Captain Davis of the C. S. Hulbert says that this has been observable at sea every day for several weeks past, and that the sky in the East during that time has been just as red and glowing when the sun arose each day, as we have ever seen it hero lately while the sun was setting. Old ma riners begin to shake their heads and say that they do not understand the aspect of the elements. There is evidently some unusual changes going on iu the atmosphere or elsewhere, with which the recent volcanic eruption in the vicinity of Java has probably had something to do. The unusual phenomena of nature, the glowing sunrising and setting aud the peculiar aspects of the skies still continue. That the late volcanic erup tions have had some mysterious effect upon the at mosphere seems certain. If it is true that the gorgeous skies and remarkable phenomenon were dueto the effects of the tremendous eruptions in Java when they first appeared, the recurrence of brilliant sunsets would seem to indicate that the terrible volcanic disturbances have not yet ceased and we may look for still further disasters. All the volcanic regions of the earth seem to be in an un usual state of activity. Meagre reports from South America indicate that eruptions have lately taken place along the western coa.it of that continent. There have been slight shocks of earthquakes in Mexico and the West Indies, and in Italy Mount Vesuviou shows signs of another outbreak. The volcano on Hawaii is naid to be ominously active aud another lava flow is feared. In the vicinity of Java several new islands have been thrown np. The earth seems big with new offspring. The case wherein Mr, Deven was charged with cruelty to an animal, came np before Hi Honor, the Police Magistrate Wednesday and the defendant was acquitted of the charge. Accord ing to the preponderance of testimony, it was elearly shown that the horse which suffered the alleged cruelty, was balky, and the driver, be lieving in the judicious application of the "rod of correction," touched him np a little sharply per haps with a carriage whip. As we .predicted in our issue yesterday, therefore the use of the whip was considered necessary discipline which of course could not be called cruelty. The horse was how ever virtually condemned as unfit to be driven in a licensed cab. In rendering the latter portion of thia decision doubtless .His Honor found ample authority in the provisions of the law but if all hack horses should discover that by balking occa sionally they could be legally excused from per forming service on the streets of Honolulu it is not at all improbable that those who travel now in cabs would find themselves then compelled to walk. It is feared that this is setting a bad moral example which will tempt all horses to balk. The carpenters have begun the work of finishing the new Campbell block.

Some one has tried to get up au alarm about the possibility of au earthquake ' ese Islands by circulating false stories aboi. .-.iake" on Ha waii. A daily contemporary says that the Hebrew New Year began at C o'clock P. m. last Monday, whereas in fact, it does not begin until a week from that time. Not only did Mr. Purvis bring line fols and mongooses to this country but he has also brought seeds of many differeut kinds of schrubs and trees and some plants. The mongooses brought to these Islands by Mr. W. II. Purvis were examined by many people yes terday. These specimens are of a dark gray color and in size are somewhat larger than a large rat. They have long noses and are very active. The schooner Ka Moi. at the old custom house wharf, is taking in some very heavy machinery, Lydgate's new mill, at Laupahoehoe.

The Java earthquake, the recent fiery sunsets or something else has evidently caused a museular ruptioti in Honolulu, as there is almost every day one or more pugilistic demonstrations made by gentlemen who never were known to think of such a thing before. Yesterday two belligerents were sjen in combat in Nuuanu street. Thursday there was another runaway. A horsj belonging to a native got loose down ou the Espla nade aud rushed up Fort street.

Frank Bucklaud gives an in teres ting description of the curious yet simple apparatus by means of which the eel is ablj to keep his gills moist with out taking in fresh water, aud thereby to live a long time out of water aud travel on laud for a con siderable distance. Close to the pectoral fin of the eel is a slit which acts as a valve, connecting with a large cavity, inside of which are the gills. This cavity the eel has the power of filling with water, and of keeping within it a supply which prevents the gill fibres from adhering together so as to stop respiration. It .is surrounded by a loose mem brane, and is filled and emptied by means of a cu rious bit of mechanism which is thus described: "A framework of very delicate bones, each bone connected with its neighbor by an clastic mem brane of the consistency of gold beater's skin.forms a fan-shaped covering over the gills; its action is very like, if not the same as the action of an uni-. brclla. When the eel wishes to take in his water supply he, as it were, opens his umbrella shaped framework and fills his reservoir; when he wishes to expel the water he, as it were, closes his um brella." When an eel is taken out of the water he will soon expand his reservoir and swellings will appear on either side of his head. He will sho'rtly wish to refill his reservoir, aud, if given water, will immediately take in a considerable quantity. With this he is ready to make an overland jour ney if he wishes to change his abode. The eye of the eel is protected against the mud, stones, Ac, among which he lives by what Mr. Bucklaud calls a wonderful spectacle or eyeglass, formed by the conversion of the skiu of tho head where it passes over the eye into a thin but strong transparent membrane, which forms an admirable guard against injury. Popular Scienca Monthly. There is a movement oa foot in California to stimulate the industry of raising b-jats for sugar. There is considerable discussion about the project and a very able paper on tho quality of luet sugar and the details of manufacture written by Mr. E. F. Dyer has been awarded a prize by the Depart ment of Agriculture at Washington. In regard to the matter a San Francisco contemporary says: Edward F. Dyer, son of E. n. Dyer, Superin r l. c -r t.... ir t tendent of the Standard Sugar Company at Alva rado, Alameda county, California, has prepaied a paper on tho cultivation of the beet and the pro cess of the manufacturing of beet root sugar for which he has received SI, 200 from the Agricultur al Department at Washington. California is about the only State in the country that has given much attention to this subject. Two or throe factories of this kind have buen in operation here for sev everal years. They have had to contend with all the obstacles incident to the establishment of in dustries iu new sections of the couutry, together with the additional prejudice against the use of beet root sugar. Many people have assumed, with out the shadow of an excuse for their position, that sugar made from bests cidld not pjssibly ba as good as sugar madi from cana. Some imperfec tions in the earlier years of the manufacture of the article rather tended to confirm those preju dices. But the industry has workid itself into a recognition of its merits, and of late years there has been no difficulty ii selling all the beet root sugar that could be made in California. If the product had been twice as large it would have sold just as readily. The Alvarado refinery produced 1,351,633 pound refined sugar duriug it third season and 81,775 gallons molasses. The product for that season shows a value of $133,617. The manufacturing expenses were $103,359, while the other expenses incident to the sale of tho product were SI, 324, thus leaviug a profit of SI 1,936. This is an industry that is susceptible of considerable enlargement in this State. In Germany, France and England, many thousand tons of beet root sugar are annually consumed. In some parts of Europe it is about the only kind of sugar used. Judge Bickerton is expected back bv the sUanicr to-morrow.

Atrleleut.il Poisuuing ou Hawaii. Death of Two (iiildrru. A sad occurrence took place at Jtilea, Kau, Ha waii, on the plantation of Mr. C. N. Sjiencer, on Friday the llth inst. Four young Portuguese child ren were aceidently poisoned by partaking of Cos ta's Rat Exterminator. The father of the children named Ferreira, is an invalid and subject to fits, and when he discovered that the poison had been taken he was severely attacked with the disorder, which continually troubles him more or less, and was therefore unable to give the necessary atten tion to the little ones, who found the poison under a house near their homo. It seems that Mr. Pat ton, the bookkeeper at Jfilea Plantation, had mixed up some of the exterminator with sugar and placed it in the dining-room at tho place in order to kill flies, but as it had not proved useful for that pur pose, he removed the poison to his residence, and after it had remained iu the house awhile, thought he would try what effect it would havo ou rats and roaches. He therefore placed it under the floor of the building which he occupies. The underpinning of the ho-.iso is upon in places aud the lit lie child ren, iu playing about, happened to find it. The mixture containing, as it did, some sugar, would not Iu unpleasant to the taste and the little ones put their lingers into the ines to try it, and finding it pleasant to their palates, proceeded to devour it. While they wore still eating tho poison a woman servant of Mrs. Spencer's noticed them ! and immediately told their mother what they had j been scon tasting. Ou discovering what had happened, the mother applied, for remedy, her fin gers down the throats of tlu) children to cause the in I to vomit, and produced, as she thought, some re- lief, but the poison had taken hold in the stomachs ! of the little ones mi l required special remedies un der medical direction which should have been adJ ministered promptly. Thinking that the children had no moro of thu poison in their stomachs, tho mother thought there would lo no danger and did not apply for a doctor at ofiee. The eldest of tho children continued to grow very ill however, and the next day the matter was brought to tho atten tion of Mrs. Spencer who promptly caused tho proper remedies to bo given to the children, and Dr. Oliver was immediately summoned. But tho proper treatment came too la to and the oldest child named Maria" Isabella Ferreira, fell into a state of stup r caused bv th-j action upon her sys tem of the phosphorus which the rat mixture con- i tained. Nothing further could then bj done, and i after lingering in a very low condition for six hours j the patient died. Meanwhile everything was done I to save tho other three children who did not seem to be so badly poisoii'jl as M iria Isabella was. They wore all very sick though, and another olio ; named Isabella Jose after linging for a few days iu a bad state, expired on tho 19th instant. Tho other two recovered. Mr. Center, the acting manager of the plantation, and Mr.' Pattoii, and all the eo pleat the plantation, did their utmost to save tho little victims of tho unfortunate accident and every j thing possible h.is bjen done to console the bo- reaveel parents. 1 The Life of a Cab Driver. j The enterprising cab driver has a tine field in Honolulu and usually he works it for all it is worth. The first thing you are likely to hear in the morning, is a carriage being driven past your residence and about the last noise that greets your ear before retiring 1o sleep at night is the sound of the cab wheels rattling over the rough street. The life of these d rivers is anything but an enviable ono but in soine respect it is not devoid of interest. They, of course, meet all kind of people and after a short experience in tho city thvy " know" every body by sight. Those who pay them liberally and those who adhere strictly to regulation rates, and those who are inclined to be "dead beats" aro all known to the successful driver. Wheu a bad cus tomer wants a ride to a considerable distance, tho driver considers whether the chances are that he will get sufficient pay or not and in cae the cliance of making more lie in another direction the "diplo mat of the cab" pleads a previous engagement ami thus avoids a bad patron. On occasions of public aud private parties, tho j;tblic cab is always in de mand and as the cab driver takes his fair or strong passenger to the place of gathering be is likely to hear what pleasures are anticipated, and agaiu when he takes them home after the festivities, ho usually hears the events of the evenilig commented upon, and often learns some thing which aro not intended for the ears of the public. On one occa sion it is well-known that a fair young lady while, returning from a "sociable," or party, with her papa in a public cab, made some remarks in regard to -ft clever young man who had that night captiva ted her fancy, which the driver chanced to hear, and from the tone of the fair one, as well as her words, he was convinced that she had fallen in love with the party mentioned. On the very next day it chanced that the same gentleman which his lady passenger had so unwittingly betrayed an aloha for, called the driver and took a considerable ride in his carriage. Passenger and driver got into con versation and the latter, iu the course of their talk told what the young lady had said only the evening brfare. The young gentleman was surprised but delighted as well, and it is said that there will soon be a marriag.j iu cmsjquenco of the good under standing brought about between the young couple by the friendly office f the cab driver. In a financial point of view the business of driv ing a cab is not very profitable. Sometimes for several days in succession there is absolutely noth ing to be made. Thou again there is a rush, every body seems to want to ride a:id profits are large. Saturdays, and when steamers arrive from abroad, there is usually the m st money in driving a pub lic vehicle. Iu the experience of most driver it ha been found that comparatively poor peoplo pay the best and the wealthiest are most close in their calculations. S no day Reading. THK Jl-ST AND TUB W K Ktl. "Blessiugs upon the head of ti c just ; but vio lence covcrcth the mouth of the wicked." It ha pleased divine wisdom to make certain marks and to lay down certain rules by which it is possible to distinguish the righteous from the sin ful; the truthful from the false, and tho sincere from tho hypocritical. Tho duty and mark of u Christian character aro embodied in a life of meek ness and in unostontimt purity, made indisputa bly sincere by tho quiet practice of charity, humil ity and kindliness towards even tho most' provorse of our fellow men. To distinguish and divide tho good and the bad so that all may know those that follow the right sincerely from those who only pro foss good deeds, the Holy Word declares that ' blessings are upon the head of tho just and vio lence covereth the mouth of the wicked." Find a truly righteous man and ho will reveal particular attibutos which no hypocrite can simulate. In de meanor the upright man is quiet, dignified and calm. Loving all men he hates none. Generous forgiveness and magnanimity animate his thoughts and determine the character of his actions. Vio lent utterances and imprecations never issue from his lips; abusive thoughts and bitter sentiment never contaminate Ids breast. Y. hen tho missies of anger and enmity arc lor : 1 ij.on him by wick ed hands he does not deign i n to complain, much less docs lie i-oiidohocnd to tali lie. for all snare and bitterness of spirit, all malice and invective How from a wicked la-art and cannot prevail against tho grand, ballancod aud impregnable fortification where righteousness, sincerity, truth, forgiveness and generous love have intrenched themselves to got her in tho . U rnal, adamantine blessings of God Wicked hearts are fe.rev.-r contentious. Wicked tongues are poisoned with tho venom of their own words. Wicked hand wield violent weapons which ri bound and are self destructive. Wicked bosoms burn with tno hell of their own iniquity and bo como sepulchre where nothing remains but cor ruption and bono. The just man looks upon his unfortunately wicked brother with pity and com miseration. The rightious pray that tho most sin ful may lie pardoned and endeavor earnestly to bring back tho greatest wanderer into tho sacred fold. No taunts or expressions of arrogant super iority, no sneers or Jeers escape the humble Christ ian who is always sufficiently satisfied with the con tinual approval of hi conscience. He does not seek to beat or abuse even those whom ho cannot commend but always has a charitable word for tho most hateful and degenerato of ids fellow man. Now it lies with our own will to determine wheth er we shall be known in tho world a just or wick ed individuals, and wc cannot hesitate a moment in our choice. Let us stand by tho principle of righteousness as long as wc- live. Let u support the cause that is so noble, elevating and invigorat ing to the true soul. Day iu and day out, week after week, from year to year, until memory empties her chalice into the urn of oblivion our hearts and our hands shall unite in establishing and maintaining forever an unquestionable right to the blessings of tho just. Saetessfal JtiroiU. There are in tho world a multitude of newspa pers that barely bring in enough to pay for pub lication and the other incidental cxonsos which aro inseparable from tho management of a publish ing office. It is customary to speak of a nowHpaior man as if ho were a sort of nondescript w ith a pio carious method of getting his living. But pluck, enterprise aud brains have won eminent success in this, as in every other gnat department of human endeavor. Every ewspaper, however limited the umber of its subscrilx-rs, or however few tho able articles of editorial disquisition, has a far moro vast intlucnco than we are wont to imagine. By judicious management fortunes havelxion gathered out of newspaper enterprises, not in Hawaii tin happily a yet, but in America, England and in other countries of the world where a great number of people are interested iu a common system of government and national institutions. Speaking of the successful public journals in tho United States, that have started without money, tho Aurk. land Veer says: ' Tho successful public journals of America havo been started, as a rule, without money, Tho Lod ger was founded by throe workinginoii whose e.ipi tal consisted of their intelligence aud in biHtry, aud they thus founded, without capital, a newspa per property that would bo cheap at throo millions. The Press was started by Colonel Forney w hen ho had no capital, and he made its grandest siu-oohs with little financial aid. Tho Times wu founded only eight years ago with a nominal capital, and it has loug boon paying thrive Government interest on a million. The Now York Herald was started without capital. Mr. Bennett was its solo editor, reporter, business man and salesman, and now live millions would not buy it. Tho Tribune was start, od in a like manner by Mr. Greeley, and ho died leaviug it worth a million. Tho Kun was found"d by Mr. Beach (' Hudson' History of Jouru tlisiu" says Benjamin II. Day was th'j found'-r of tho Kun) without capital, and was mado the most prosper ous penny pap'-r in tho country, and i now tho most prosjicrous two-c-iit journal. Tho Biltimoro Sun was tho creation of tho Philadelphia Ledger men, aud its venerable proprietor, t ho survivin g partner of tho old firm of Swain, Abel .t Simmon, is a millionaire outsido of his moro than million ncwspaior property. The only profitable jvurual that Washington has known sinco the war is thu Star and it was the creation of brain and muscle not of money. Tho Springfield, if assachusettM, Republican, the model provincial journal of the country as well as tho most successful, was built up from an obscure weekly solely by tho patient industry aud masterly ability of the late Mr. Ham Bowles." CIIMSTI1. WORK IN HOVOl.l U . Mr. Crazaa's Let! are Room Talk, WedrmdiT ft enla;, September SCth. The great mass of tho English-speaking popula tion of this city arc unreached by these Churches. Only part of those who do attend Church are Chris tians. Now in the parable of tho Ninety and Nino we get some bint of how we Christians ought to regard those unsaved masses. Following the para bio, we are told that the poor lost sheep Ix longod to the shepherd. So these thousands outside tho Churches are God's children ; they too, as well as wc, belong to Him. Then again, tho Shepherd missed one when it strayed. God misses tho throng ing thousands from Hi house and heart of Jove, He long for them and their salvation. And this suggest, again, that the Shepherd perilled bis lifo that He might save this one sheep. So God fol lowed and sollowed us so He follows, and loves these lost ones in Honolulu. Ho is not partial. Then see how tenderly the Shepherd cared for tho lost ono ; He did not chide it, or boat it, or burn its fault into it. His arms of lovo were around it, and so also He goes out after these who are wand ering away from Him in Honolulu however low they may fall in sin, they cannot get !cyond His love. O Christian men and women ; do you bclievo this Bible? "A strange question," you will say. Yes, it is.eTBut do you believe it ? Do yon believe what it says abont sin?

Then what manner of men and women we should be 1 How ardently, unceasingly, aud faithfully we should work 1 What should we do? 1. We should ask God's foigivtuess for our past indiffercnoo. 2. We should renew our consecration. 3. We should enter upon the work of carrying Christ to those unchurched masse with courage and enthusiasm. 1. Wo should expect great things from God. 5. We cannot do this work without self-sacrifice, and wo roust put case, and liclination, and self-iudulgcnco on the altar of God. The Meteor. Last night about 7 o'clock i moteor was i-oeii passing in a horizontal direction from south to north so very close to the earth that it seemed to pass very near to the mountains on the south ex tremity of this island. Mr. S. Nott among others witnessed its passage and says that before the me teor went out of sight it broke into piece. The phenomenon was very singular in that it passed iu a horizontal direction instead of descending uoar ly vertically. There can bo no doubt but that it passed very near Oaba although of course tho ex act distance cannot bo determined.
