Our esteemed lypc-wrltur contem porary, tlic Ililo Record, succeeded admirably in making a fool of him self botli in liis issue inuurdiately preceding the election and the first Usue after the election was over. Flimsy twaddle of Hie ward politician )rder,9iu:li as Honolulu was deluged with during the campaign, occupies most of the space of the two issues. The small, slobbery, school boy talk against the independent candidates Messrs. Purvis, Burchardt, and Marsden before the election, labor ed to impress the llilo voters with the belief that the independents' success meant stagnation for the island of Hawaii, and utter ruin for the kingdom. Here is a sample of the lauguage and style, of which there are whole pages: "If you don't want Oie-eaters and obstruc tionists in our nationnl council you will vote for the regular convention nominees. We want something else besides bluster and blow. Don't be fooled into scratching any of the regular nominees, for such men as are on the opposition ticket," etc. "Sec that all those independents, as they call themselves, are scratched off: you don't have any need of them," etc. "Scratch all the names of those Englishmen on the inde pendent, ticket. They are of no use to the country, antl had bolter be attending to their own business than meddling with that of the country," etc. In the next issue of the Record, after the election, Marsden and Hurchardt, successful independents, are tnuud to be very c;ood fellows. "We," says the Record, "know him" (Marsden) "to have the in terests of Hawaii at heart, and that he is a man who thoroughly believes in internal improvements, and will work for anything that will further the welfare of this island," etc. "Hurchardt is too we believe to be a thoroughly progressive man." Is it not wonderful that one short week should have produced such a complete "new creation" in full grown men ! They were as bad as bad can be on the 4th instant the day of the Record's issue and on the 1 lth the next day of issue were as good as angels! We, iu Honolulu, cannot metamorphose men quite so rapidly as the Ililo people. Perhaps it would bo well for our neighbor the Advertiser and the retired Times to send some of those wicked Honolulu candi dates up to llilo for conversion, and llien by the time the Legislature meets we shall have a House ap proximating to absolute perfection! Hut after all the Record N not en tirely satislled with the result. The natives of Ililo did not do right. That is, they did not vote as the Record wished, from which our con temporary sees "that there is yet danger that the present good gov ernment may be overthrown," etc. What a scarcity of governing ma terial there mill bo in this prosper ous little kingdom! None but those f one small faction can confer good government! "They are the men, and wisdom must perish with them!" lioth and bunkum doubly-distilled! A SQUEAKING SCRIBE. KniTOit Hi n.K-riN :".!. A.

THE SECRET BALLOT. Kmioi: Hrw.KTiN : The Adver tiser of this morning devotes a col umn of fair criticism to election practices, which goes to kIiow at least how much more moral some people's ethics can be alter an elec tion, than befoie it. Sweet are the uses of adversity, when it enables us to moralise ou circumstances which indicate "how the atmosphere if political life lowers the ideals, de teriorates the moral tone, and causes the finest conscience to lose its rrlge." How much "moral tone" can there be in the political life of a party who finds it necessary to run its voting serfs who are practically alien to the country and Ignorant of unrt in the main indifferent to Uh po litical issues through relays of plantation luiias who, after having intimidated them by threat of dis missal, openly hand each voter his employer's tickets and sec it de posited in the ballot box? How much "moral tone" and conscience had the Advertiser ceu sor three weeks ago, when he ap proved of the Prime Miuister who, as the holder of the portfolios, the legally constituted national grand. Jury the judge and chief inspector of 'election practices using such extreme partisan language as he did? How could those opposed to him expect fair play? The spirit of the acting Attorney-General has elec trilled all his subordinate through the islands and converted them into active agent agalnl the people, and it Is no wonder that the ferment of discontent and unrest is at work. The Advertiser closes by advocat ing "a free uninlluenced secret bal lot, "but did its party ever expect to gain power by such honest means? Let usho)c,h6wcver,that the Nobles of Maui are satisfied that the people will l)e content with nothing let-s; and, if so, sonic of them will sec now, what last session they ignored. This morality posing of the Adver tiser is something like a purgatorial repentance. Cms. KAHULUI NEWS. Tdie district has again subsided into its customary lethargic quiet after the momentary excitement and activity attending the recent elec tions. "Kabul in, as usual, went solid for Reform, and if all places in the islands were like this one, theic would be but little chance for Na tional Reform agitators and dissatis fied oflice hunters to stir up a row. The weather has been very changeable for the la3t couple of weeks, Kona wind and rain in tor rents one day, and beautifully clear, calm, delicious cool weather the next. There was an incipient thunderstorm accompanied by vivid lightning last Thursday afternoon, and it looked as though the elements were preparing for a good, old fashioned display of their strength, but they stopped short at the threat. Shipping is quite animated in the harbor nowadays. The hikelike towed out two vessels last "Wednes day: barkentine Wrestler, Capt. Dwars, for San Francisco, with 890 tons of sugar, valued at about $87, 000, and the barkentine Klikitat, Capt. Cutler, with S3 1 tons, valued at S77,ijO!).2i5. The bark Newsboy will probably get away about the 22d inst., and the schooner Challen ger will tollow close upon her, both with full cargoes of sugar for San Francisco. All the mills on the island are running to their full capacity at pre sent and there will be a snug little pile of sugar put out in the course of the next three or four months. La grippe has made its appear ance on Maui, to the delight of those who wish to be fashionable, but is not present in a very malig nant form : in fact, in by-gone days, it would hardly be called anything more than a simple cold. There is a good deal of sickness and mortal ity among the Japanese and Portu guese, and Wailuku school has been closed by order of Dr. Herbert, owing to the prevalence of measles in the district. Gos-ir. THE HILO RECORD. Tuesday, Feb. -1. On Friday last one of the men on the Lurlinc had a leg broken by the falling on it of a bag of sugar. Dr. Williams at tended the man and set the leg, and the man is in a lair way at present. The last heavy rains brought down a great deal of drift wood and the heavy surf at the same time threw it up in great quantities on the beach, where the natives gathered it up, and piled it along Front street. It is many years since this has hap pened before. The late high surf came near washing awa- some of Richardson's lumber piled near the beach. The brig Lurlinc left this morn ing for San Francisco, with a lull load of sugar. Passengers by her are Mises Newel and Gibson. For the last week the weather has been exceptionally fine, and the mud is drying up all through our streets. Tho snow is melting fast off the mountains. Tuesday, Feb. 11. The barken tine Quickstep, Tibbets master, ar rived in this port on Thursday last, Feb. f.tli, 1! days from San Fran cisco, willi full freight. She will leave in a couple of weeks witli a full freight of sugar. WHY HE DIOH'T RIDE. Many years ago two gentlemen, both Justices of the Peace, were walking from Glasgow to Govan (at that lime a beautiful country road) when they saw in the distance the Rev. Mr. Thorn, minister of the latter parish coining toward thein.Mr.Tlioni was somewhat eccentric, and the two friends resolved to have n joke nt his expense. When they came to the minister one of them accosted him thus: "Good morning, Mr. Thorn, how is it that you do not imitate ilie ex ample of your Master, and enter the city riding upon an ass?" "Uecause," was the ready reply, "they have made them a' Justices ' (he Peace." . WANTED SriTA'I'lOV na ltnnttki.nni.i- In iV town or plantation. Addiess A "O. I).

The torpedo-boat Cushing'was launched at the llerrcshoff yards yesterday. The vessel is 1H8 feel long, li'i feet beam and has a depth of hold from the crown of the deck to the keel amidship of 10 feet and has n draught of but I leet I inches loaded. The Cushing's displacement is about 10o tons ami its maximum horse-power 1,000. The hull is built of steel throughout, every plate and frame being galvanized ; so are also the anchors, railings and all exposed metal work. The keel, of Mat plate, is worked to form the ram. The stern U a steel forging, extending from the spar deck to eight feet along the keel from the spur of the ram, and the stern-post is another steel forging. Above the water the dishing will be very plain, that she may he a poor taiget for the shot and shell of an enemy. Two conning towers and two smoke stacks are her roost pro nounced features. A whale-back extends from forward of the conning tower to the bow, and the whole deck is curved so as to throw off shot. .She has not only twin screws, boilers and engines, but twin pump ing machinery, torpedo tubes and steering gear. The condenser alone of all the mechanical equipments is single. The hull is divided into eleven compartments, separated by water tight bulkheads, the openings in which close on rubber gaskets, with wedge-locking devices, which secure them from opening against any pres sure. The Hooding of any compart ment, except the engine-room, would not seriously interfere with the working of the boat. 1 lie move ments of the vessel will be controll ed from two conning towers, which are circular, of one-quarter-incli steel plates, and have double sliding doors. The engines may be run to gether or singly. The fighting powers of the boat consist in discharging torpedoes through the tubus in the bow, the object being to get near enough to the enemy before being discovered to discharge torpedoes. To do this requires great speed to cross the danger space before being discover ed or struck. The dishing will have to approach as close as 200 yards to be within effective firing range. The torpe does arc discharged by an explosive compound. They will travel at the rale of forty feet per second over the surface of the water. It means sure destruction to a ship that is struck squarely by one of them. THE AMERICAN NAVAL OFFICER. One of the best compliments which 1 have heard of as paid to the olllcers of the "squadron of evolu tion" was from an Englishman, who has long been a resident of Boston. He said he was struck by the gentle manly and modest demeanor of these wearers of uniforms, which impress ed him as differing greatly from the consequential, not to say arrogant air of oilicers of Britisli men-of-war. This peculiarity, he said, extended to the sailors, who were as courteous as the ofllcers in affording informa tion. "Why, that squadron," he said, "will furnish a better argument for republicanism than any number of South American revolutions." It seems to me that a tribute of this sort from a foreigner is exceedingly satisfactory, and it opens up consi derations of the relation of manners to ollicial life which have a wide application. The Englishman said he had seen gray-haired sailors in the Britisli navy insulted by beard less midshipmen, and lie was much impressed by the self-respecting ap pearance of "Jack" on board the squadron of evolution, and under this head he included seamen of various nationalities, not excepting Chinese cooks, assimilated by American discipline.
