PACIFIC' COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, SEPTEMBER 21, 1880.
f H i 1 Hi i ,r i : 5 .411 . 5 i if r K !-; '. t 1 - s i 3 4 1! Arrival ef the Amnna, Thft British iron ship Amana, 1,299 tons register, Captain Alexander Becket, arrived in jtort yesterday afternoon, 170 days from London, and 147 days from Madeira. She left London April Gth, I and arrived at Madeira on the 22d. At the latter place she embarked Portu guese immigrants, and sailed on April 29th for this port. . Captain Becket re ports very heavy weather at Cape Horn, and they were some considerable time in rounding that point. From the Horn to latitude 30 north, the vessel experienced the roughest kind of weather, the seas running mountains high, with gales of wind from the northwest. On several occasions they could not show any can vas at all. The Amana put in at Co quimbo August 10th to take in a few stores, as Captain Becket did not want to take the chance of running short. She left Coquimbo on the 12th, and pleasant weather was encountered during the re mainder of the voyage. The island of Maui was sighted on Wednesday after noon, and the Captain reports that it was raining very hard on that island, which is welcome news. They saw two beautiful waterfalls. The Amana was anchored in the stream, and has on board 140 men, 101 women; 15 males from 12 to 20 years; 57 females from 12 to 20 years ; 140 chil dren from 1 to 12 years, and 1G infants. Total, 475. Four infants died during the passage and there were ten births. The vessel is consigned to Messrs. G. W. Macfarlane & Co., and has between four and five hundred tons of freight for Honolulu and seven hundred and fifty tons in transit for Portland, Oregon. Soon after the vessel came to anchor, the Hon. A. S. Cleghorn, Inspector General of Immigrants, accompanied" by Senhor A. de Souza Canavarro, Portu guese Commissioner, paid an official visit to her. The Hon. Mr. Cleghorn went all over the vessel and found her in ex cellent order, a credit to the Captain and his officers. He says it is wonderful how clean the vessel is after such a long voyage and having so large a number of people on board. The following is the ship's surgeon's report : Ship Amana. To Messrs. Skinner & Co. Gentlemen : 1 be to report for your information that during our long and tedious voyage there have been ten (10) births, the mothers and infants in each case doing well. There have been but four deaths all iir fants. Of these two (2) came.jo bft&rd in aittWp&exs.tai-eue Suffering from a gen eral deformity of trunk and limbs of a most unusual nature, and the other from an incurable tabes mesenterico. The re maining two died from pneumonia, due to exposure and insufficient clothing off Cape Horn. The amount of sickness has at times been verjr large, especially during the long continued wet, cold and stormy weather off Cape Horn, when for nearly two months the peoxle were unable to come on deck. At one time there were over 150 suffering from illness more or less severe. Several bad cases of erysipelas occurred, and two almost fatal cases of pyaemia, be sides several of pneumonia, bronchitis and rheumatic fever, so that there is great cause for thankfulness that the death rate has been so small. In my efforts to care for the welfare and health of the emigrants, I have been ably seconded by Captain Becket, between whom and myself the most cordial and friendly feelings have existed during our long voyage. Captain Becket has been most kind and indefatigable in caring for the well being and comfort of all on board. The Chief Officer and Second Mate have also done all in their power to make things comfortable and pleasant. Mr. William Brittain, Sr., has had charge of the hygienic department during the greater part of the voyage, and has ably carried out my" instructions, and has proved himself energetic in the very thank less task of making the people keep them selves clean. The Storekeeper, Mr. F. Brittain, has had entire control of the stores and the feeding and arranging of the emigrants. It is therefore unnecessary for one to refer to those departments further than tc state that the food supplied to the emigrants has been ample for their health i.nd require ments. In fact, I am of opinion that in very few ships have emigrants been so well fed and cared for. And there certainly has not been the slightest cause for any complaint either as to quantity or quality of their rations. I am, gentlemen, yours obediently, J. A. W. Waedale, S.R.C.P., Lond., M.

Its Court and Official Calendar carefully corrected to the latea moment. Articles of special value to the Islands have oeen prepared by ex pert writers, which are well calculated to beget great interest in their condition and prospect abroad. Elegantly JLlliirated.. The Mi Bred SPECULATION, JR., Will stand for the Season of 188G at the Hotel of service. Description : SPECULATION, Jit., is a black home, 15 ?4 hands high, and weighs about l.OGO pounds. He has a small head, large full eyes, clean cut throttle, handsome arched neck, strong oblique shoulders, great depth of chest, straight, strong back, smoothly coupled to long, symmetrically turned hips, a handsome croup, elegant flowing tail, poweifuljand well finished quarters, long, strong joints, short in cannon bones and pasterns, and the best of feet. He is indeed a horse of great beauty and rare symmetry of form ; is rery etyli'sh in harness, an extra fast walker, a prompt driver, disposition perfect, and last, but not least, is very fast. Pedigree : SPECULATION, JR., was bred by E. C. Gillispie of San Francisco, Cal., and was foaled in 1878. He was sired by Colonel Spreckels celebrated trotting stallion Specula tion ; he by Rysdyk's Hambletonian, the greatest progenitor of trotters that ever lived. Speculation, Jr.'s, dam was sired by Easton's David Hill, the sire of Geo. Treat, record 2:25 h ; also, Black Swan, 2:28, aud" a number of other fast ones. Speculation became very noted several years since as siring the two celebrated trotters, Oakland Maid, record 2:22, and Crown Point, 2:24, two as game trotters as are often seen on a race track. It is a fact worthy of note that the breeding of Speculation, Jr., is almost identical with that of the great champion trotting stallion Maxey Cobb, whose record of 2:13 made only last year, stands at the head of the list of all stallions. Maxey Cobb was by Happy Medium, he by Old Hambletonian, and his dam was by Prince Nebo, son of old Long lsland Black Hawk. Speculation, Jr., by Speculation, he by Old Hambletonian, and his dam by Easton's David Hill, who was also a son of old Black Hawk, making them bred exactly in the same blood lines. This is a fact that should not be lost sight of by breeders, and to say that he will sire fast horses, when coupled with good mares, would be superfluous, as if he should fail to do so it would be strictly against the law of Nature that like produces like, or the likeness, of some ancestor. SPECULATION, JR., in addition to his line breeding and great individual excellence, is a fast and game trotter himself. He has never been trained or prepared in any man ner, having been kept as a private roadster by his owner, so that his speed is only purely natural and undeveloped. He was never in but one race, and that was last year. Hia owner started him in a matinee trot to see how he would behave iu company. This was against the p.dvice of his friends, who stated that it was dollars to a rotten egg that he would get the flag in hia face in short order ; but contrary to their expectations, and to the surprise of everyone, he went off and beat a large field of old seasoned campaigners with such ease, and apparently with such little effort, making a record of 2:36, that it im mediately stamped him as being nothing short of a trotting wonder, and making it doubly certain that, could he have had the advantage of the long continued, careful training from day to day, week to week, month to month and year to j-ear, that is given the great turf performers, he would long ago have placed a sensational mark to his credit, perhaps equal to that of his celebrated brother in blood, Maxey Cobb, whose untimely death early in the present year was so greatly deplored by all horsemen in America. His owner, Mr. Cohnfield of New York City, refused $G0,000 "for him a few days bi fore his death. SPECULATION, JR., and Maxey Cobb are not the only horses of this famous Ham bletonian and Black Hawk cross that have won distinction on the turf. Some years since there appeared at every meeting through the Grand Circuit in the East a little brown horse named Gloster, that literally swept everything before him. He would trot around on the extreme outside of a large "field of horses the whole mile, and win with such ap parent ease that it was plain to everyone that he had several seconds of speed in reserve every time. At the end of the trotting season he had made a record of 2:17, won in a jog, and had earned the title of the trotting whirlwind of the East. Shortly after this he was suddenly taken sick with lnng fever and died, and it was then that hia owner, Mr. Goldsmith, unbosomed himself concerning him, and declared that if the horee had lived he would certainly have trotted a mile the next year in two minutes, as there really seemed to be no limit to his wonderful speed. The whole country was then anxious to learn his breeding, which was as iollows : By Volunteer, he by old Old Hambletonian, dam by Stockbridge Chief, son of Old Black liawk, being identically the same combina tion of blood lines heretofore alluded to. A mare called Molly, by Old Black Hawk, pro duced by Old Hambletonian the two mares, Efije Deans, 2:25 and Lottie, 2:28. In California we have another instance of the value of this cross in the two fast mares, Sister, record 2:21, and Huntress, 2:28 , full sisters, their sire. Admiral, being by Volunteer, he by Hambletonian, their dam being by MeCracken's Black Hawk, a son of he old original Black Hawk. These mares have a full sister (yonnger) called Nona S., that is said to be faster than either of tl :-m, and will no doubt be driven to a fast record soon. Their sire, Admiral, although bred to a great many line mares of other blood, has never produced any other trotters with records. Other inptances could be cited, but these are sufficient to establish the fact that horses possessing the blood lines of Speculation, Jr., stand at the head of the list as producers of extreme speed.
