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.
R.C.S. Eng., Surgeon in charge.

tries. Its Court and Official Calendar carefully corrected to the latea
moment.
Articles of special value to the Islands have oeen prepared by ex

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.
