Metcalf of San Francisco comes as the agent of the London Lloyd's, to examine the wreck of the steamer Miowera, and decide what to do with it. He is accompanied with two professional wreckers (the Lougee brothers) and should it be thought possible to float and save the hull an attempt will probably be made to doit. Mr. E. J.

Devanchelle Gets a Severe Sentence For Smuggling Opium. E. Devauchelle, who, with J. Cockett, was arrested some days ago and charged with having opium in his possession, was Wednesday fined $500, and sentenced to 8ix months' imprisonment at hard labor. He at once appealed to the circuit court. As he left the court room he was again arrested and charged with selling opium unlawfully. The case was a clear one against the defendant. A Chinaman named Ah Lum, who had been furnished money by Captain Andrews, bought forty-nine tins of the drug. They put the tins into a carriage for the Chinaman, and soon after were arrested, and the opium brought to the station house. They demanded separate trials, and Devauchelle's resulted as above. I. Cockett the young man who was arrested with E. Devauchelle for having opium in his possession, was convicted in the district court yesterday and sentenced to six months imprisonment at hard labor and to pay a fine of five hundred dollars. Cockett at the time of his arrest was offered immunity from prosecution if he would turn State's evidence against Devauchelle but he refused and demanded a separate trial from his fellow-prisoner, with the above result. An Art Critic in the Corporation Galleries. Ex-Professor Stevenson (cousiri of Robert Louis) was in Glasgow the other day. Sir.

For the same journal Mr. Stevenson is to illustrate the collection of Mr. Keiller, of Dundee. Mr. Stevenson, who has forsaken painting for literature, is one of the ablest exponents of the impressionists. His contributions on art have long been a feature in the Saturday Review ; and the critics pronounce his article on Corot in the Art Journal as being the best English exposition of the scope and accomplishment of the art of the great iandscapist. Glasgow Herald. MARSDEN'S NEW PETS. Several Boxes of Insects Arrive and are Turned Loose in Kalihi Valley. Commissioner of Agriculture Marsden received several boxes of the insect scale destroyers by yes terday's steamer. They came down on ice, and were in splendid condition, being as lively as crickets when released. The insects for the worst kinds of blight did not come, but are expected on the next through steamer. It is not known when Prof. Koebele will arrive, but it will probably be soon. When he does, an extended examination of the prevalent blights will be made, and the professor will start for Japan to obtain the needed insects for their destruction. The arrivals of yesterday were released in Kalihi valley, where there is a great deal of scale on the trees. They got down to work immediately, and seemed to understand just what was required of them. The Two-Minute Trotter. Twenty years ago the two-minute trotter would have been considered an impossibility, for in 1874 Goldsmith Maid's mile in 2 :14 was believed to be the ultimate possibility of trotting speed. Nine years ago Jay-Eye-See trotted in 2 :10, and a year later Maud S. turned the Cleveland track in 2 -.US?. In 1831 Sunol showed a mile in 2 :0S, and then came the bicycle sulky, which has changed the scale of trotting records and which made possible the mile in 2 :04 of Nancy Hanks. It is, however, apparent that while a few horses have demonstrated that they can trot quarters in less that thirty seconds and halves close to but slower than one minute, no trotter has shown the sustained speed to finish a mile at the same gait. When Directum went to the half in 1 :00i he could not do the last half better than 1 A like result has attended the efforts of all the other flyers. The two -minute trotter may come. But when the phenomenon appears it must be in the shape of an animal that can trot the quarter in twenty-seven or twenty-eight seconds, that can go to the half in fifty-eight seconds, and that can then finish the mile with quarters in thirty-one seconds. Such a trotter has not yet been seen, but his evolution does not seem impossible. N. Y. Herald. One on the Captain. A stowaway, who was discovered on the Mariposa a day or two after she started, was a trifle too smart for the ship's company Friday. Shortly after the steamer docked, Captain Hayward, who had sent a man ashore for a policeman to take charge of his free passenger, let his eye wander away from his prisoner for a minute. That minute was all that the stowaway wanted, and ho immediately beat a hasty retreat down the gangplank and departed for unknown parts. At last accounts he was still in those unknown parts, waiting for the officer to find him. A Heavy Mail. The steamer Mariposa ha3 an un usually heavy mail on board for the various ports to which she is bound. For New Zealand she hab 530 bags, for Sydney 250, for Honolulu 50, for Samoa, Fiji and war ships about twenty, or a total of 850 bags. It is not certain whether she had on board the London mail sent out via Vancouver to go by the S. S. Miowera, but as no reference was made to it at the San Francisco po3t office it probably was not sent on from Vancouver. The detention of the Mariposa one day in leaving San Francisco was caused by a portion of the European mail having been on a train which arrived at San Francisco a day late. The London mail is supposed to go by a special express train, which has to leave New York promptly on time. When 1 a part of the mail fails to reach the depot at the appointed hour it has to be sent by the next train. This is sometimes the cause of the through steamer being late. For some time the government and the board of health have been carrying on negotiations for the purchase of the at the leper settlement. At meeting of the board of health, held last week, the president stated that the matter was now being effected, and would be brought to a conclusion in the near future. The Pacific Hardware Company received a large consignment of goods of various kinds by the Mariposa. &rjl HI STORY OF MOIKEHA ONE OF THE LONG VOYAGES OF THE ANCIENT HAWAUANS. Iteail Before Hawaiian Illitorlctl Society by Or. X. B. Emerson. MOIKEHA. Moikeba is a name distinguished not alone as a great navigator, out also as the head of a family of navigators. He stands as the central figure representing the period of intercourse in the of its activity. By the time he appears on the stage, Hawaii must have been able to form more definite conceptions of the countries that had been vaguely described as " Kukulu o Kahiki." His story Is of interest, not so much as opening up the log-book of an enterprising mariner, as being tbe record ot a life checkered with the same passions and disappointments that affect mankind today. The story of the voyage of twenty-three hundred miles to Tahiti is no longer charged with the early mystery anil terror of the ocean ; these have fallen into the back-ground and given place to the emotions that control human action at all times. In Molkeha we see a man moving in the dim perspective of an age, remote and utterly foreign to us in all its thoughts, under the tragic influ ence of the passion of love. Moikeba and his older brother, Olopana, who was chief of a district that included the valley of Waipio on Hawaii, loved the same woman, Luukia, she bolng the wife of Olopana. 27 27 The Hawaiian language recognizes this relation, and applies to the two men the name "punalua." "In Saturn's reign Such mixtures were not held a stain." If we remember that the time was five centuries ago, and the place dark Polynesia, we shall not be surprised at this Saturnian state ot morals. The relations between the brothers was most friendly, and continued so. was the highest subject in the land, the prime minister and trusted friend of King Olopana. Heavy rains and floods having brought desolation to the valley of Waipio, the brothers embarked their all on a fleet and sailed away to Kukulu o Kahiki, whero they settled, and Olopana gained sovereignty over a land, or district, called 2S There have been much discussion and conjecture as to the location of the laud bearing this highly significant name. There is, if I mistake not, an island, or district on the group named Omoa. May not this be tbe same place as this The complex relations that existed between the two men and the woman Luukia, were, of course, a constant in vitation to a social catastrophe. It finally came in this manner. A chief named Mua looked with jealous eyes on the beautiful Luukia, and set himself to sow discord between her and her lover, by persuading her that he had publicly made jest of her and defamed her. She at once severed all relations with him, and effectually barred herself against his approaches by a device which, as an ingenious and ornamental lashing used in rigging the canoe, has become famous in Hawaiian legend as "ka pau o Luukia." 29 29 (The or skirt, of Luukia. The was the garment of modesty anciently worn by Hawaiian and Polynesian females, a roll or rolls of tapa cloth, or a fringe of leaves or bark, reaching from the waist to tho knees. The lashing of the canoe, called o Luukia," was an Intricate and highly ornamental piece of weaving, done in different colors of sinnct, which joined the cross pieces, iako, to tbe float of the outrigger, amaj. Unable to penetrate the secret of this unaccountable action of Luukia, or to extract from her any explanation or hint as to its motive, Moikeba, in mortification and despair, determines to gather together his followers and embark for Hawaii. "Let ns sail away to Hawaii," said he, "because I am bo agonized with love for this woman that I am ready to take my own life. When the ridge-pole of my house, Lanikeha, sinks below the horizon, I shall cease to grieve for xaniti." RETURN OF MOIKEHA TO HAWAII. Kamahulele, his headman, stirs up the work of preparation, and in the early dawn, at the rising of the star, Sirius, (Hokubookelewaa), Molkeha, with a considerable retinue of attendants and followers, puts to sea and steers for Hawaii. His adopted son, Laa, whom he had brought from Hawaii, he leaves to the care of his brother, Olopana, who, in the whole affair, seems to have remained in the background. It was early morning when the sea-worn voyagers of Molkeba's company found themselves floating in Hilo bay, and in wondering admiration saw before them the naked bosom of Hawaii, with her milk-stained breasts, Kea and Loa, pinked by the dawn, upturned to heaven, as if still in slumber. Standing on the ample platform of the king's double canoe, its triangular sail and streamers of red tapa stirred by the air, the bard Kamabualele celebrates the occasion in song, which tradition has banded down to us: kamahualele's address TO HAWAII. Behold Hawaii, the island, the nation, The nation Hawaii, oh, Hawaii is a nation, The offspring of Tahiti, A princely flower from Kapaabu, From Moaulanuiakea of Kanaloa, Grandchild of Kabiko and kehau, Papa begat him, JAMfefaJfinir.,l)iili riff 'iTtiliiaMii The daughter she of KakalaniehU and Kahakauakoko.

MOIKEHA AT- KAUAI. As Moikeba coasted along on his way to Kauai, one and another of his company, enticed by tho attractions that offered themselves, left him and settled down to enjoy the abundance of the land. Arrived at Kapaa, on Kauai, went ashore in style, and was cordially received by the resident chiefs of the district. His manly grace so captivated tho hearts of two young women named Hoolpolkamalanai ana Hinauu, who were refreshing themselves with surf-bathing, the daughters of a chief named Puna, that they begged of their father to be permitted to become his wives, and the request was granted. His days ot adventure and active romance over, Moikeba settled down, and in due time found himself the happy father of five sons, tho youngest of whom, Klla, was a boy ef great promise. F. A. Schaefer filed a new bond for $15,000 as guardian of Carl A., Elias A. and Antonio A. Holt, yesterday. The former bond, which was for $30,000, was cancelled.
