The Pioleilehua took the lead at a good, even stroke, and rowing steadily all the way, won by 250 yards. As toon as the barge race was finished, the Myrtles brought their boat, the ".Lilian, round to the judges' 'barge, requesting that tbeir 'decision in reference to race No. 15 might be changed, and telling them that the Kapiolani was ready to contest the race with them. The judges, however, refused to alter their decision, and some very bitter things were said about those who had been elected on the committee for the man agement of the races. The judges having quitted the barge, and the crews of the boats Lilian and Kapiolani still wishing to go over tho course, elected Mr. Dowsett, Taylor and Gulline as judges. The race was rowed, the Lilian' coming in first, in 29 m. 45 sees. We understand that th crew of the Lilian mean to claim a prize in this race, in spite of the opposition shown them. They have our best wishes for their success. The foot-race between Sims and Kin came off at noon, and ended in a victory for Sims, winning easily to all appearances. Distance, 200 yards Time, 2G seconds. Notwithstanding the crowd on the wharves and vessels, there were no accidents or fights to mar the pleasures of the dav. A detach ment of police were on duty during the day, but thev had little or nothing to do but look on and keep the small boys from falling into the water. The sailing canoe-ract;, as seen from the deck of one of the vessels, was an amusing affair. At tlio start, it seemed as though the one with the largest sail had it all its own ;'but owing to the amount of leewaye all canoes make, and the time lost in getting around at each tack, the two canoes, after fouling with several other crafts, ' and wan dering all about the harbor, came back to the starting point with not much to spare between them. The many guests of the Honolulu Yaoht and Boat Club, who were gathered on the Planter, were, .enthusiastic ,in their cheers for the No Name, and flashed bright blue ribbons, ' streamers ' and wreaths on hats, parasols, coats, and dresses. But alas for their hopes. Their favorites made a gallant struggle ; but the Myrtles kept up the really remarkable stroke with which they, com menced, and led No Name to tho finish, with plenty of water between. . The race late in tho day between the barges was well contested. From the shore it could be seen that the boat steered by the Hon. John Cummins -was pulled in better form than the other, though both did well. I'olicc Court. bkfoke rolici justice bic1cehtox. Satxkday, Nov. 15.

Chicago Journal. u Chinese" Gordon is said to entertain remarkable religious beliefs. One is that Adam and Eve were actually poisoned by the forbidden fruit, and the only antidote for the continuing effects of the poison is the sacrament of the altar. Another is that he believes the center of the kingdom of satau to be "close to Bass isle, south of Otaheite, not far from Pitcairn's isle.

PROFITS OF ALLIGATOR HUNTING. A "Lookem-Up," a "Klll-'em-Sure" and a. "Dynamite." ? ' : ! Cor. 4w York Sun. A fevv- niifhts ago I had my slumbers broken ievrrHtim?s by the discharge of -guns. On repairing to the bank of tho river, the next morning, to ascertain the cause of the noises I found two young men occupying a hastily constructed pal metto fan camp. Six dead alligators were lying around the camp, varying in length from four to eight feet. The hunters had killed them the previous night One of the young men was busy skinning the alligators, while the other, with the aid of u single cooking utensil, .which answered the purpose of a baking oven and coffee pot, was pre paring a frugal morning meal. The skin is removed from the belly, the under part of the jaws, and the inside of the legs. The skin on the back is worthless. As soon as the skins are removed thev are salted and packed in barrels, and shipped to a New York firm. The hunters receive $1 a piece for all hides four feet long and upward. . .' . . . After the skins are removed the hunters cut off the heads and place them on the edge of the river, where they remain for about a week. At the end of that time the teeth become so loose . that they can readily be pulled out with the fingers. The teeth trom half a dozen large alli gators weigh about a pound and are, worth 4. ;.. . , , r The two young men killed fifty aliiga-' tors in the week that they hunted in this neighborhood. They begin-; hunting as soon as it becomes thoroughly dark. Their hunting outfit consists of -a bull's eye lantern, in camp language called ttlook-'em-up, " a double-barreled shot-gun, or "kill-'em-sure, " and a hatchet, with which they split the alligator's skull, and to which they have given the very ex pressive name of " dynamite. " The man who is to do the shooting for the night fastens the lantern to his forehead and takes his place in the bow of a small boat His partner paddles the boat cautiously along the stream, while the man in the bow keeps a sharp look out for alligators' eyes, which under favorable circumstances he can "shine" with his lantern at a distance of 200 yards. As soon as they discover a pair of eyes they paddle cautiously up to within a couple of feet of the alligator's head and discharge a load of buckshot into it. As soon as the shot is fired the , paddler catches Jthe alligator by the jaws, which he holds together with one hand while he cleaves the skull open with hi3 hatchet. " Sometimes the alligators .retain consid erable power of action. When such is the case it is rather exciting work getting them into the boat Sometimes very large alligators turn the boat over.

"Gath" in Philadelphia Times. Telegraphy, it seems to rac, miif cease some of t" -ese days to make so many men rich. I understand that at the last national convention some of the new companies did the newspaper work for cent a word over 1.000 miles Of country. This only makes something like 2 cents a line, or $5 a column, for telegraphic transmission. I can remember when I was a boy in Phila delphia that any plain, ordinary burgher would as well go .into a store iv d buy a marble statue as drop into a telegraph office and send a message. In those days the honest Philadelphia ns borrowed the newspapers from each other. One enter prising person would take a paper, paying 1 cent a day for it, and the two neigh bors on either hand would borrow it. Now we have so grown in grace that our sons at the ages of 7 and 8 will walk into a telegraph office and send a message to their aunt in the Mississippi valley. All this forwardness, I think, is due to smoking cigarettes, for I can sec no other reason for such confidence. The heads of the boys seem no bigger than formerly. The cigarette, no doubt, brings the nervous system forward. A Pompeiian Venus. Chicago Tribune. A curious discovery has just been made at Pompeii in the course of the excava tions carried on there. A fine statuette of a crouching Venus was brought to light in a sculptor's workshop just cleared. The sculptor must have been engaged in re pairing the statuette when overtaken by the awful catastrophe of the year 79. The head of the figure had evidently just been remodeled anew, as it is far inferior in style to the remaining portions of the body ; the two arms were also new, and had been fastened to the trunk by metal pins. The body of the artist himself was also discovered in the shop, lying prostrate on the ground, and with a large cingulum still grasped in his hand. A cast of the man was effected by the usual process of running plaster of paris into the cavity formed by the body in the solid dust.
