Ey the steamship Mariposa neven Sisters of Charity arrived, for the purpose of attending to the sick poor of the islands. Bis Majesty very considerately placed several of his carriages at their dispoftl. Owing to the illness of her sister, Governess Kekaulike. Her Majesty was nnable to attend in person for the purpose of receiving the ladies, but she deputed Mrs. Beckley, her chief lady in waiting, to do the honors. On landing, the Sisters were driven np to the Roman Catholic Church, where they were received by the Bishop of Olba in a few words of cordial welcome. Within the sacred edifice the T Deum was cele brated. After tae service, the ladies were pre sented to the Sisters of the 3acred Heart, with whom they will remain for two or three days. Meanwhile a house on King street is being pre pared for their temporary residence nntil the house at the hospital is finished. These good Sisters, of whom there are twelve in all, will divide themselves into four districts, viz : Hono lulu, Wailnku, Hilo and Molokai. We welcome the Sisters with a warm Aloha, and feel sure that the good work they are about to engage in will elicit for them an universal welcome by everyone in the Kingdom. Hawaiians can do something bettor than soma other folks. Here is what the San Francisco Wasp has been goaded by circumstances into saying about the Reformatory school of its own city. "The Industrial School might advantageously be burned, and such inmates as should escape roast ing be relegated to the position of outmates forever and ever, world without end. There is always trouble at the Industrial School; always the man agement is under fire. In the various annual and semi-annual investigations there has been enough of neriury committed to damn the souls of ten thousand professional witnesses black and blue The school is a distributing center of lies, theft, cruel tv. nameless abomination and unassorted crime. For every worthless young hoodlum re claimed there have been a hundred deserving adnlts corrupted. The institution is a source of appalling expense; by the system of industrial schooling it costs a matter of twenty thousand dol lars to reform a young thief and prepare him for the duties and responsibilities of a life of forgery This is too much; the self-made forger is almost as efficient, and him we have always with us in quan tity. The Industrial School is always under the wheels of municipal government; the Supervisors are kept so busy complicating its various entangle ments that they have hardly the time to rifle the public treasury. Let the Industrial School be burned and turn the young rascals out. air. Walter IXill can show this irate editor a contrast to the institution which has raised his wrath. The Planters' Monthly for November is to hand, and is unusually bulky. It contains the minutes of the annual meeting of Planters Labor and Sup ply Company, also the reports of the several com mittees in connectioa therewith. A statement shewing the ownership of Hawaiian sugar planta tion, very clearly refutes tho statement contained in Commissioner Searle'a report with regard to nationalities interested in the sugar production of this Kingdom. This valuable table was prepared by the Hon. J. S. Walker, Auditor General, and "may be relied upon as correct and truthful, so far as such statistics can be made." The estimated total value of the sagar interests is $15,886,800 of which the Americans control $10,180,464. This number of the Monthly will bo a valuable one fr reference. Mr. J. K. Forter has brought down with him six teen horsrs, including some fast trotters for which he wants bis prices. Among the lot are some good saddle horses, lit to carry a lady, one of them being described by t he importr-r as a " gilt-edged " ani mal. With the horses came four mules and a fine shorthorn bull whroe dam cost a thousand dollars. When these animals have recovered from their voyage they will be in tbe market, except the bnll which was imported to order and goes to Mam. A contemporary contains a table which professes to show tbe valuations and taxation in the district of Honolulu for the year ending 30th June, 1833. Owing to a gross mistake in the fig ures presented, we have been requested to notice the same. School tax is valued at $116,412 54. Probably a leading article in next week's issue by our neighboring statistician will explain to the public where these figures are taken from. The Oceanic Company's steamer Mariposa left San Francisco November lr t, at 3 p. m., and ar. rived at Honolulu November 8th, at 1 p. x. Passage, 6 days and 22 honrs. She brings 1,330 tons of merchandise. Had .fine weather through out the passage. Major Wodehou8eH. B. IL's Commissioner, held an enquiry on Monday last into the case of homicide which occurred on board the S. b. Bell Rock daring her voyage to this port. Captain II. W. Mist and Hon. A. S. Cleghorn were associated with the Commissioner as Assessors. Reporters were not admitted, it being held by the Commissioner that the en quiry was a private one. The circumstances of the homicide appears to be as follows : One of the immigrants' cooks, a native of the Phil lipine Islands, wa3 addicted to drink, and was very crazy when in his cups. , He had threat ened several times to have the life of some Englishman before the voyage ended. On the day of the shooting he was very drunk, and threatened to put a knife into somebody. This being reported to the Captain, the latter or dered the chief officer to pnt him in irons. When the chief officer found him he was in a narrow compartment off the passage which runs by the engine-room a place through, which the ashes are passed overboard. These who have been aboard the ship will understand how con fined was the space in which the encounter happened. The chief officer asked the man for his knife and as he denied having one proceeded to search him. As the mate stooped to search the man's body the latter slipped the knife from his sleeve and attempted to strike, whereupon the mate seized his hand and having a pistol in his right hand fired at his assailant. The shot entered the man's forehead killing him instantly. These and other details of the case were testified to by nine witnesses, among whom whom wus Mr. A. HoS'nung, who was close by at the time. The Court after considering the ev idence, decided that the Chief Officer was not to bluwe.uud returned him his certificate, which is of a master's grade. Iu the case of Luk Sang and Wong Quai vs. Yini Quon on an order of the Court to show cause why defendants should not be punished for disobedi ence in failing to comply with the perpetual in junction issued October 5th, 1833, to erect a dam across the ditch dug by the defendants to prevent water running on to plain tiff's. land, the Court after hearing the testimony ef both sides, decided in favor of the plaintiffs and imposed a fine of $50 and costs ou Yim Quon and ordered Quai Wa to 1 sent to prison for ten days for contempt of Court The concert si veil n Saturday ni"ht in aid of the Library was a grand sncu-ss, 1th financially socially sml otherwise. To criticize would le in ridious. The drbut of Mr. Kraft, as a clarionet player, ti'vod that he will be a valuable acquisi sitiou to the Symphony Club. The encores, though few, were thoroughly deserved, and we hope that the result of this entertainment will in duce tho promoters to furnish the public with another similar treat. The evidence taken by Marshal Parke as to the death of two Portuguese children at Hilea from poison has been submitted to the Deputy Attorney- Oeueral and that gentleman has decided that there are no circunistauces disclosed that can warrant a criminal charge being made against any person or persons. The schooners Wailele and Waiehu took away 75 Portuguese last Wednesday for Hawaii, on account of Messss. Brewer Jc Co. Mr. A. Frank Cooke per sonally superintended their embarkation and did all he could to add to their comfort. Among them was the lady who added one to the population ou Sunday last. Sho carried her own burden and tripped as lively as the rest. The schooner Jennie Walker arrived in port yesterday afternoon, after a sixteen days trip from San Francisco. On Sunday, the 28th nit., sli.- si-.'iueil a bai k in 142 deg. 49 min. west longi- tmle ai..l 25 .leg. 2 min. north latitude. This was probably tlie bark Lady Lampson, which sailed from Sau Francisco for this port on the 18th Oc- tobei. A barkentine, name unknown, was also "sighted on Wednesday last in 147 deg. 59 nun. west longitude and 23 deg. 24 min. north latitude. She brings a general cargo. All persons who are indebted to the Pacific Commercial.

The Claus Spreckels sailed from S. F. for Kahu lui on the 25th Oct. and the Kalakaua on the 27th Oct. for Honolulu. The fire wells were all filled on Wednesday last, a wise precaution when there is an abundant sup ply of water. Wy the arrival of the Mariposa we learn of the sudden death of Mr. Charles L. Richards, who was the founder of the business in this city now carried on by Messrs. A. W. Peirce St Co. For nearly twenty years past Mr. Richards has been a resident in Norwich, Connecticut. He died rather suddenly at a late hour on Sunday, 21st October, from the effects of an accidental injury sustained so far back as the full of 1879. The Bulletin, a newspaper, says of him:. " Charles It. Richards was born in Waterford, August 23d, 1830. In 1860 he went to California and thence to the Sandwich Islands, where he did a success ful business as a ship chandler. He was engaged in business at the Sandwich Islands for a dozen years and was part owner in several whaling ves sels. During the war he suffered some losses from the seizure of his vessels and still has an unsettled claim of $25,000 or more against the government for a whale ship impressed into the service of the government during the rebellion, to return the sailors of the whaling fleet destroy ed by the Confederate war-ship Shenendoah, to their homes. During Mr. Richards' residence in the Sandwich Islands 1.. " firae the intimate friend of King Kalakauu .. . companied him on many excursions. He icturued in 1864 and settled in Norwich. In 167 he returned to the Sandwich islands anu seiuea up uis Dusiness ai- j . .. . . . , i , - i r I fairs then returning to Norwich iu 1868 and set tling here permanently. The same year he mar ried Miss Ada Pollard of this place, who, with six children four sons and two daughters still survive him. Mr. Richards personally was a gentleman of exact habits, fine feelings and agreeable social qualities. He made a wide cir cle of friend who will sympathize with his fam ily and sincerely mourn his death." There are many here who knew him who will f el keen sympathy with his family. Messrs. Wm. G. Irwin & Co. imported per Con suelo, twenty head of carriage, saddle and trotting stock. These animals were selected in California by 5fr. Wm. Heran who has already established his reputation on these islands as a first-class judge of horseflesh. . The animals were lan ded in first-rate condition and during the week they have totally recovered from the depressing effects of a sea voyage. They are for sale, and the early appli cants will, of course, have their pick of the lot. Messrs. S. J Levey & Co. announce that they are in receipt of an immense stock of new goods per Ut.ll Uock from London and other late arri vals. Their double column advertisement speci fies the thousind and one good things that, they have provided for the public, the whole of which were specially selected for this market. A call at their store on Fort street will have a better effect than all we can say ou their behalf. Last Monday afternoon twelve couples of the new ly arrived Portuguese presented themselves at the Interior Dept. for the purpose of obtaining the necessary document prior to being united iu holy matrimony. They were all dressed for the occa sion, and presented an interesting scene. Col. J. H. Boyd furnished the ladies and gentlemen with all they required in his usual felicitous manner. The final ceremonies were concluded at the Roman Catholic Church. Five hundred and thirty-three immigrants left Kakaako on Tuesday last for various plan tationsMr. llassinger and Mr. Smithies had a hard day of it, attending to their engagement, and dispatch, be ginning work at 5:30 a. m. The Portuguese Com missioner too was busily engaged. The Inspector- General of immigrants Hon. A. S. Cleghorn has also been repeatedly looking after his new charges from the time of the ship's anchoring inside the harbor. If some of the detractors of the country could see the attention paid to immigrants whn they arrive here, albeit they be but laboriug men and women, their mouths would surely be shut. The wharves presented an animated appearance last Tuesday afternoon. Theiuter-island departures comprised the steamers Likelike, Lehua, Kilauea Hon, Mokolie and Iwalani, each carrying a larga living freight. A few minutes after 4 o'clock the S. S. Planter entered the channel on her first return trip to windward. Owing to Captain Bates having te give way to the outgoing steamers he had a little difficulty to ontetid with in getting alongside the wharf. The S. S. Plauter reports that on the upward trip she arrived at Maalaea Bay at twenty min utes to two o'clock on the morning after leaving this port, two hours and forty minutes before the Likelike. On the return trip she made the pas sago from Maalaea Bay to Honolulu in seven hours and forty niinutes. Captain Bates feels highly pleased with his new command, though she is hardly so handy as the Iwalani. Au important credit auction sale is announced by Mr. E. P. Adams to take place on Friday the 23d instant. The importers, Messrs. G. W. Mac farlane & Co.. are celebrated for the excellence of the goods they import, aud iu the matter of va riety, this lot was never surpassed in Honolulu. Mr. Samuel M. Damon gave a dinner to Mr. A.

The recent heavy raius show the defects iu our streets and sidewalks, more particularly the latter. It is impossible to patrol the streets after sundown without getting wet feet in some of the many stag nant pools of water. Tho Anglican Church Chronicle for November contains much that is iu Wresting, but it is to be regretted that such a serious blunder should have been made in the "make r.p" which to the unim- ated, makes two or three of the articles rather am biguous. If the Road Supervisor will send the new steam roller down to Waikiki and run it over tho road from the church to the end of the park he will find that tl .a la te heavy rain has left it in condition to be consolidat-id so that it will stand good for a long time to coaie. A bill in Equity was before the Supreme Court a(-rrUv. Chief Justice Judd on the Bench. The Court dismissed tho bill. Mr. Preston appeared tn.r Pnonni. the nlantiff, and Mr. Ashford for Pau- ahi, the defendant. Messrs. Lvons & Levey's sale of Mr. Fyfe's fur niture brought good prices. The property was not sold, however, owing to there being no bid beyond the npet price of $5,500. It will probably change hands by private sale before the end of the week The distances run by the Mariposa on her voyage from San Francisco were : November 2d, 244 miles : 3d, 306 miles ; 4th, 275 miles ; 5th, 313 mil fith. 309 miles : 7th, 816 miles ; 8th, 314 miles.

The , value of the estate is about $110,000. r " Chief Justice Judd proceeded to Hawaii last Tuesday for the purpose of holding the Waimea Circuit Court. Mr. Austin Whiting also went np in the position of Crown Advocate. The usual Monday concert at EmmaSqnare was doubly enjoyable after the depressing influences of the heavy rams that fell throughout the day The Likelike sailed yesterday under the com maud of Captain You Schmidt, formerly in com' maad of one of Messrs. J. D. Spreckels k Co.'a vessels. - - The whaler Sophia Johnson arrived in San Fran cisco on the 28th October, but brought no oil and no news. The San Francisco Bulletin says " In con trast with the luck of the Arctic fleet is that of the little schooner Clara Light, owned by Charles Sca ly, No 13 Mission street. The Arctic whalers have seen few whales and the catch has been'execeding ly light. At the time the Page and Sophia John son left, none of the ileet remaining had any whales but the Clara Light sailed from San Francisco on August 11th, ran on a rock and was brought in and repaired, and again sailed September 7th. In sixteen days she had secured six whales. She cruised about within a radius of fifteen miles from the Farallones, but the weather was so foggy that her catch up to daio was not so great as expected. She got in all nine whales and 300 barrels of oil. The whales are of the humpback variety and yield a good oil but no bone. Mr. Sealy has three whal ing stations on the Southern coast, and the year before last he got over 2,000 barrels of oil." The Arctic fleet this year consists of thirty-nine vessels of which two have been lost. . The Europa, which has been here and sailed again, the Rainbow about due here now, and thirty-five vessels due in San Franciscoduring the present an J ensuing months. The short supply of whale oil in San Francisco, the reports of the poor catch up to July 20th, and the delay in the arrivals of the vessels, all add interest to the situation. There is very little whale oil, and most of the stock is in the hands of a single firm, who renort a suddIv of 8.000 eallons and brisk . " . . . . , . demand. Tha aavices received irom tbe north about the 1st October, showed that up to July 20th the season had been a comparative failure. The Alia California comments on the opium seizure on board the Mariposa last trip. It says: "The Court found itself in a quandary over the questions presented, as the laws of the Kanaka Kingdom requiro the master of a vessel to be noti fied by the customs officers when a search is to be made, but no notice was given in this instance, and the master and agents were in nowise to blame for what occurred. Again, the Court an nounced that it found itself in a dilemma as to whether the laws of the Kingdom applied to Amer ican r. vessels, and it doubted the propriety of searching the steamers of the Pacific Mail and Spreckels lines, which passed through Honolulu only in transit. It considered the question an in ternational one, best adapted for settlement byjthe two nations. At Fort-st. Church, Sunday morning, there will be a union service in honor of the 400th birthday of Martin Luther. Dr. Damon will preach a his torical discourse, and Eeverends Hyde, Merritt, Bishop and Cruzan will take part in the opening exercises.

A would-be runaway horse and dray was cleverly stopped on Thursday on Merchant street by a man engaged on the Campbell Block. He picked up a board and held it in front of the horse which had the desired effect. Complaints are again made of larceny at the wharf. A suit of clothes, au oil skin coat and $7 was stolen from the Klikitat Saturday night. The regular monthly meeting of the Mission Children's Society will be held at the Kawaiahao Seminary to-night.

The New York Herald states that the Secretary of the U.S. Navy has declined to pass the vouchers of Commander Pearson, .commanding tko United States steamer Wachusett. and Captain Carpenter, commanding the United States steamer Hartford, for expenses incurred in employing pilots on leav ing certain porta of the Pacific station. It is a standing order that pilots shall not be employed on naval vessels unless absolutely necessary. A saving of $37,000 was eflccted by this order during the past year. Secretary Chandler haa directed Admiral Cooper to pnt the United States ship Ten nessee in dry dock at New York for repairs. It ia said that the injuries which she sustained in the gale and in running ashore, as a consequence of not employing a pilot, are such that it will cost about $30,000 to pat her in seaworthy condition.

Editor : On reading in the late papers of the continuance of the earthquakes in the eastern hemisphere, it loads me to think what is the cause of this unusual disturbance ? On our planet it seems that the whole globe is in a tremor. As far as we now know, there has been from the most terrific convulsions to a slight tremble. Now, as to what is the cause, we can only coujuctiuc. Is the earth overcharged with electricity or not enough? for nature is always strutting for an equilibrium, and this globe of- ours is now in a eonvulsion to restore that which it has lost, or to get rid of an overload? Whichever it may le, there is a disturbing element somewhere. In this paper it is proposed to propound a causa. The first noted disturbance commenced in the latter part of 1876 ou the near approach of Mars to its perihelion passage in August, 1K77, whon all the fluid elements of this glolto were disturbed. Our streams pulled away from their natural ourses, for when Mars was at its nearest point to the earth the planet Jupiter and Saturn were lend; ing a helping hand, for in two years they were in conjunction, and there was also the grand con junction of some of the outer planets. Home hun dreds of writers said it would be the end of all things. That did not come off as predicted, and that part of the programme it finished. We will see what can be done to give a reasons for the present disturbance which certainly Is of electric origin. The preceding ones were of gravitation.) Did the comet of last year only charge our globe with electricity which it is now struggling to get rid of? It seems reasonable to think so. Or did it extract from us enough to cause these convulsions, and is the earth now struggling to regain from the sun what th6 comet took on its long, and to us, myste rious journey ? ' If the earth is overcharged with electricity she is now sending it back from whence it came. These earthquakec will contino nntil an equilibrium is established and then all will be in a state of rest nntil the mechanism of our system is i lightly de ranged, and then what we see now will be repeated as has beon for millions of yean. Gravitation and electricity are the two equal forces that govern the Universe. With theso rambling remarks I remain yons, Walteb Edmund Woon. Everything Must Go! GIB (M1)B SALE AT A. tl.
