SAMOAN AFFAIRS QUIET.
the V S.
iortly Wore duk la-t evening, the
steamer Explorer, 171 ton register, Cap
tain B. Holman, arrived at this iort from
Apia, via Tutuila. The Captain's re
port is to the effect 'that she left Apia
December 3d, called at Tutuila Decem

da Spoke tho Oceanic steamship
Mariposa bound for the Colonies Decem-l-er
6th in latitude 11 deg. 31 in. S., lon
gitude 170 d-g. , and received letters
from on board. During the early part of
the voyage strong northerly wind:,, rain
and lightning prevailed, the remainder
of the passage being remarkably fine.
The vessel is ow ned by Messrs. John
T. Arundel & Co. of London .d u n-
j gaged in the guano trade. A passenger
I on b,)an was Mr. Oeorge C. Ellis, who
represents the house in the South Seas,
and this gentleman stated in answer to
inquiries that affairs in Samoa at the
time he left were remarkably quiet,
which irt attributable in a great meas
ure to the absence of the Consul., r rep
resentatives of England, the United
States and Germany, though the two
former Powers are still represented by
Vice Consuls. The question was ad
dressed to Mr. Ellis: What was the most
important public topic at the date of
leaving? After a little consideration, I
nothing more pressing than cricket j
could be thought of, from which it may j
be inferred that island politics are at a I
low ebb. The place is in a fairly f.our- j
Uhing condition under the present ad- '
ministration, and King Malietoa and his !
supiKjrters are at liberty to hold their de
liberations in the newly erected Govern
ment building without interference.
Tamasasi's party, who consider that that
chief has a claim up -n the throne, are
quiet, the German Consul, who is un
derstood to favor their pretentions, being
absent. Rumors are rife from time to
time of renewed hostilities, but nothing
of the kind has occurred, nor is it thought
that there is any need of apprehension
in this direction. Mr. Ellis had heard
no mention whatever of the Hawaiian
mission until the Marijosa was spoken
on the voyage hither. The town of Apia
is increasing in importance, a circum
stance which is due in great measure to
the periodical visits of a steamer subsi
dized by the New Zealand Government,
and the trade with that colony is in the
ascendant. The North German Lloyd
Company's steamer from Sydney, con
necting with the new mail line between
that port and Bremen, also exerts a ben
eficial imluence on local commerce. '
The Explorer came to this port in bal
last and was met by Mr. J. T. Arundel of
London, one of the owners, who arrived
by the Zealandia last week. After some
necessary repairs have been effected,
the vessel will return to the islands,
among which she is constantly engaged
in the business of the firm. The guano
rade has for some time past been car
:ed on froin the island of Canton, but
is now been abandoned there, the op-
eracion"oMntr been transferred to
Baker's island, wuei e-'innients are !
being made for the purpose. The trade
is principally with Europe, the inferior
qualities of guauo being shipped to the
The English yacht Golden Fleece and
the German man-of-war Albatross were
lying at Apia the early part of the month,
and the latter was about to proceed to
Tutuila to meet the Maiiosa.
