ThoNorth Gorman Lloyd steam

is described as the biggest steam
er, tho biggest cargo carrier, tho
highest vessel out of water, aud
the biggest vessel over to go into
any dock in the Colonies, was late
ly successfully drydocked at Cock

passed Hunter Island midnight,

winds to the Equator, when tho
full force of tho NE trades were on
countcied, these trades increasing
to a fresh galo which continued
till noon, 21th, necessitating ship
being kept at a reduced speed, a
very high sea being tho feature of
this usually onjoyablo run. Tho
admirable seagoing qualities of
tho ship provented any damogo

Somo time ago the ship Dalgon
ar bound from Liverpool to Syd
ney, put back to Livorpool owing
to a serious iiro haviug broken out
on board. The extreme danger
which existed for one and a half
hours of tho vessel and all on
board being destroyed by the ex
plosion of enough gunpowder to
havo wrecked London was averted
by the cool courage of tho officers.
This has boon fittingly recognized,
the Australian Star says as the
following report received by the
mail will show:
"Captain Kitchen, Mr. John
Healy (chief officer) and Mr. W.
Rind, of tho ship Dalgonar, were
prasouted by the underwriters at
Lloyds with the corporation medal
in recognition of their horoio ef
forts in saving tho ship from des
truction. Thoy throw bverboard
10 tans of gunpowder when the
ship was on fire and so closo woro
the flames that smokn was coming
up from botween tho kegs. Tho
Royal Humane Society also gave
their silver medal to Captain Kit
chen. Tho vessol resumed her
passage on Noverabor 28. There
is evidently n Jonah on board, as

Tho Weekly Commercial News
of San Fraucisco, of Fob. 11, says:
From private advices received
yestorday it is learned that tho
German five-masted ship Potosi,
tho largest sailing ship afloat,
left Hamburg Ndvombor 17, for
Valparaiso, and arrived thoro
January 14, making the passago
in 58 days, the quickest on
record, being two days lower than
the record tho captain had pre
viously made, and almost stcamor
time. Captain Hilgendorf, her
commander, will get quito a pro
mium from the owners. Tho Po
tosi is not alone the largest, but
probably tho fastest sailing ship
in the world. Hor log bIiows that
a numbor of times she raado 1GJ
knots an hour. Hor comtnandor
is never known to have mado a
slow passago. In 1895 he was in
command of tho ship Parsifal,
bound from Cardiff, with a coal
cargo to a nitrato port. Off Capo
Horn, ho curried on until tho
vessel capsized and all hands wore
saved by a vessel that hap
pened to be in sight. His coal
cargo then had no shifting boards,
which the British law now re
quireB. When the captain arriv
ed home the vessel's owners, who
carry no insurance, to teach him
a lcsBon gave him command of,
what sailors call, a slow wood box.
He made a reoord passago in her
and then Capaiu Hilgendorf was
giv6U command of a now iron
Bhip, and late of tho largest car

These aro dayB of considerable
anxiety and perplexity to nil who
havo possessions or other interests
in tho Republic of Hawaii, and it
is unio thut out citizens ctuuu to u
mutual understanding on several
important issues. Tho prospects
for Annexation appear at present
vague and indistinct, aud our
destiny cannot bo foretold with
certainty. Thoro are those, also,
who still fondly cling to tho hopo
of a return to the old order of
things, and who cannot bo por
suaded otherwise, yet this out
look appears far moro hazy than
that of Annexation even to tho
most hopeful disciples of tho
Monarchy'. But, fortunately, in
tho midst of all this uncertainty
thore is solaco in the fact that
Buffalo Beer bus came to stay nud
that patrons of nil sorts and
opinions may equally share the
beueiits of its invigorating and
sustaining properties. Wo aro
moreover assured that this favorite
brow will continuo to be dispens

Lead pencils nro mado. alto

quality of cedar is cut iuto pro
per lengths, ehnpod the exact sizo
of the pencil, then split nud
grooved to admit the lead. Tho
'lead' is not lead at all, but
plumbago, or almost pure carbon,
the only admixture being a little
oxide of iron. It is ground by
machinery, aud, with a little
mixture of gluo, or some other
substance to render it strongly
adhesive,' is molded into tho shape
required. It is then placed in the
grooves, already prepared, whilo
a special dovice spreads glue over
its surface and that of tho wood,
presses the two halves together,
and thus completes tho pencil,
which is then passed on to bo
painted or varnished, dried, and
