The Qcaraxtikie Grocsds. During one
day this week, onr reporter Tislted the hous
e recently completed by the Board of
Health, at Kahololoa, denominated the
' Quarantine ground," on the reef westward
of Honolulu harbor. The particular spot
Is known by the natives as MbkuakullknlL
The location is certainly a very salubrious
one, for, " whatever aire the winds may
blow," to use the words of the immortal
Burns the dwellers on the quarantine
grounds will get the fall benefit of all the
aire of heaven. The passage thither can be
made by boat, but is preferable on horse
back, for the water, at the ordinary state of
the tide, Is not over four Inches deep, any
where on the reef. There are three build
ings which have been erected by Mr. L. L.
Torbert, under directions from the Board.
Beginning with No. 2, the building Intended
for confirmed cases of infectious diseases, we
went along to No. 1, where those suspected
of having disease are to be lodged, and
thence to Nnmber nothing, which we des
ignate as the boarding-house, o. 2 is pro
vided with eight roomy bed-places, but at
present there are do matrasses) nor any bed
ding on the spot, bnt tbey can be brought
there at any moment. This house Is the lee
ward one, and somewhat makal of the others.
It, as well as the other two, Is well ventilat
ed, and all necessary conveniences are at
tached. In the building which we have
designated as No. 1, there are some
twelve bed-places. About fifty yards
eastward hence, we find a long, large,
roomy building, divided off Into compart
ments, Intended for the accomodation of
those, male and female, who may be unfortu
nate enough to arrive here In an Infected ves
sel. The accomodations are all that could
be asked, both regarding the comfort and
convenience of those whom the board may
feel It their duty to keep in quarantine for a
period of time. Altogether, about ninety
persons can be comfortably accommodated at
the quarantine buildings.
Beports from the towns along the Genes
see and Slohawk rivers, atate that those
streams are very high, and have overflowed
their banks in various places, submerging the
bouses and farms. There are fear of an ex
traordinary flood. '

Wisdt. The past two weeks of April we

blown furiously in gusts, particularly of
nights, with occasional showers of rain.
CoDrisniNO. The bark Florence, formerly
a whaler out of this port, arrived yesterday
from San Francisco. She will take in salt
and then proceed on a codfishing cruise to
Erratcm. In onr Issue of last week. In
describing the execution of the two China
men on the Vth instant, the types, by some
singular mistake, made ns say that the mur

whereas it should read thirty minutes.
As Old Landmark Gone. The wooden
store on the corner of King and Fort Streets,
long occupied by E. O. Hall & Son, was sold
at auction yesterday by Adams & Wilder,
(to be removed) for the cum of ?10S, to L.
L. Torbert. It is the intention of the Messrs.
Hall to erect on the lot a substantial fire
strong Mustard. c heard a man
say the other day that California mustard
was the ttrongest in the world. In proof of
this, he stated that recently, while mixing
some in a cup, he dropped some on his pants.

A Cactiok to Bathers. One day last
week, as some fishing canoes were unloading
their freight at the fish market, an immense
shark showed himself near the wharf. The
fishermen were at once alive w ith excitement,
and lu a short time had the monster last and
hauled ashore. He measured about tnelve
feet In length. An ugly customer to meet
with, when one is enjoying a salt-water bath
in the harbor.
A bio squash. Yesterday, on the Post
Office Verandah, there was exhibited an im
mense squash, raised by Mr. Crowell, the
curator of the K. H. Agricultural Society's
Garden. It weighed somewhere about SO
pounds. It purported to be "White Pine
Squash, No. 1., by an Inscription on its
broadside. It is to be hoped that this
squash, thns marked "White Pine Squash,"
is not ominous of a financial "squash" to
come in the new Eldorado.

"If foreign salt Is used without the limits
of the United States for curing fish of Amer
ican catch, the fish are not thereby rendered
dutiable, nor is the salt so used liable to
duty. If salt purchased aboard for ;the cur
ing of fish is not consumed in the curing,
but Is brought into an Amerian port, the salt
would then be liable to duty, but the fish of
American catch, cured with such foreign salt
before importation, are free of duty."

of this city, Mr. J. S. Low of Kauai, and Mr.
J. L. Lewis, the cooper of King street, and

mentioned as on instance of close applica
tion to business, that duriuir the Dast eleven
years, there have been but three working-
days in which he was absent from his coop

Letter from" China. A letter has been
received at this office from a Chinaman
named W. S. Akaua, who formerly lived at
Hilo, dated Hongkong, Feb. 6. He states
that gold mines have been discovered In the
northern part of China, but that they had
been tabued by the Emperor. A coasting
schooner within a few miles of Hongkong,
had been taken by pirates, and the passen
gers despoiled of all their money and effects,
the booty being estimated at 1 15,000.
Among the passengers was one Akana (not
the writer of this letter) but a brother of
Achuck, one of the firm of Afong fc Achuck,
of this city. He lost all his baggage and
$500 In cash. There were over one hundred
merchant vessels lying at Hongkong.

"""Narrow Escaj-e or His Maiestt. On
Saturday last, about the hour of noon, His
Majesty the King, accompanied by the Hon.
IV. P. Kamakau, Circuit Jndge of Oahu, was
walking In the cocoanut grove at Waikiki,
adjacent to his seaside cottage, when three
paces past a cocoannt tree, which stood in
the path of the pedestrians, suddenly fell,
with a crash, right in the place that half a
minute before had been occupied by the
Funeral or the late Hon. Mrs. A. K.

known as Keobokalole, were taken from the

A marked feature of the procession was four

four of them, two alight, and the other two

very solemn and Impressive. The choir sang
several chants and anthems with admirable
skill and precision, the words being original
and composed for the occasion. The funeral
sermon was preached by the Rev. H. H. Par

being Rev. c 22, v. 7: "Behold I come

The Wild Man or tiie Woods. Some
eight or ten years ago, Mr. Isaac Adams, liv
ing at Niu, beyond Dimond Head, having
repeatedly lost fowls, bananas, etc., in a
mysterious manner, at last discovered the
thief in the person of a wild man, whose ex
istence in the mountains had frequently been
asserted by the natives, bnt had generally
been regarded as a myth. Setting a watch,
Adams sncceeded in capturing the man, and
brought him to town, where an enterprising
publican made some money by exhibiting
him as "The Wild man of Niu." For some
months afterwards, Adams took care of the
"wild man," fed, and clothed him, but he
could not be prevailed upon to speak, and
eventually ran away again to the mountains.
Making his way along the mountain ridge of
Konabuanul, he next appeared In the neigh
borhood ot Halawa, and recommenced bis de
predations. He was occasionally seen and
chased, bnt eluded pursuit among the wilds
and mountain fastnesses. Recently, however,
he was captured on the land of Mr. Paiko, In
the act of pulling up water-melon vines and
plucking corn. Brought before the Police
Court on Wednesday last, on a charge of
malicious Injury, and addressed In three or
four different languages, he still kept silence.
After hearing the testimony, the Magistrate
sentenced him to six months imprisonment
at bard labor. The following day, he was at
work on the esplanade, managing a wheel
barrow as skillfully as a "navvy," and hav
ing found his tongue, spoke tolerable English
and Hawaiian. There Is a mystery as to
what conntryman he is, and bow he came

The Court was occupied yesterday on a mo
tion to disbar a native Counsel, Mr. Kailiau
tea. The allegation was that one Moku, had
in his lifetime, made a deed of some laud on
the other side of this Island, (Oahu,) to his
grandson. Moku subsequently died, not hav
ing " acknowledged " the deed, and it was
brought to town to cure that defect, which can
be done, legally, by proving the signatures of
the witnesses. It was brought to one Koine
aloha, who, in company with one of the wit
nesses, Nakapalu, called on the Counsel above
alluded to, and asked him to make a copy of
thedeed, signing Moku's name to it, Nakapalu
personated the dead man, (Moku), to the
Notary, John 11. Paty, Esq., and thus having
the acknowledgment, got the deed recorded.
The whole thing depended on the testimony of
Kamealoha and Nakapalu, who were, of
course, guilty of the wrong.
Per contra, the accused man set up that the
original deed was a perfectly good one ; that
they asked him to make a copy of it, and
paid him a dollar for his work ; and that he
never asked any one to personify the deceased,
but that Kamealoha did, as he himself testified,
and if there were any wrong, it was his.
The Court said that if tbey were to disbar
a man on such testimony, that is to say, the
testimony of people who, if any wrong was
done, were principal to it such proceedings
might be taken against the most honorable
member of the Bar, and the motion was, con

ted that construction contracts had been
made at rates varying from ff2,000 to 96,000
per mile. The prices are notoriously three
times the actual cost of construction to the
company. Comparing these prices with the
receipts, It appears that they are calculated
with great exactness to strip the company,
as such, of every penny of Its funds, so that
Its property will soon be sold under foreclo
