Her last departure was on July 5th, when she left a city under arms and the new Con stitution 8till unsigned. The assessment of San Diego this year, exclusive of railroads, is $18,734, 134, against $), 192, 152 last year. In cluding railroads it is expected to reach $22,000,000. Property values have been going up for some years in that county. f The "Daily Herald" ceased publica tion on Saturday last, after a career of eleven months. The "Daily Gazette," which is announced to arise out of its ashes under the same editorship (that of Mr. D. Logan), is expected to make its debut to-morrow. A Shanghai paper publishes a rumor that the Chinese have received from the Russians some concessions on the north ern frontier, and that Russia has aban doned all designs on Corea. As a set-off Russia has received the right to trade throughout all Thibet, with the privilege of appointing Consuls at certain places. "A sketch of recent events, being a short account of the events which cul minated on June 30, 1887, together with a full report of the great reform meet ing," is the title of a pamphlet published by Mr. A. M. Hewitt, Merchant street. It contains a retrospect of the iolitical history of the Hawaiian Kingdom from the point of view of those who were in strumental in bringing about the recent change of Constitution, etc. It oens with the advent of Moreno and closes with the mass meeting, which is com piled from the Press reports published the next daj What is perhaps the most useful feature of the look is the publication in parallel columns of the old and new Constitutions, so that one can see at a glance what the innovations consist of. According to a letter from Mr. Mar tin, Hawaiian Consul General to France and Belgium, the theory known as the "Tetrahedral collapse," whereby Mr. Green, the Premier, some years ago ex plained the arrangement and forms of the great continental anil ocean masses of the earth's surface in his book, "Vestiges of the Molten Globe," has now been generally adopted and is currently taught by the majority of professors of geoloy in France. "The Friend" states, in re ply to an inquiry from Mr. Martin, that the map3 and diagrams for Mr. Green's new book on volcanic action are nearly completed, when the work will at once go to press. It regards the forthcoming book as one of the most valuable con tributions of the jeriod to volcanic science. It is said to be especially full in facts and.able in discussions respect ing Hawaiian volcanoes. v On' the 2rth of July a subscription was to be open for one day only in Eu rope and America for a new loan, author ized by the Directors of the Panama Canal Company. The shares offered will have a par value of $100,000,000, but the loan is to be negotiated at a discount of 57i per cent, so that if all the bonds are taken the proceeds will amount to only $42,500,000. The loan is to run forty-eight years, with interest at 3 per cent of the par value. De Lesseps, in a letter to the shareholders, states that $20,000,000 of the last emission is still on hand, but that prudence demands a new emission in case of a sudden call for money when political events might make it ditScult of procurement, and in order to place the company in a position to resist any attacks of enemies to the enterprise. He maintains that with the sum of $120,000,000 authorized by the Government the canal can be finished, or, if not entirely completed, will be open for traffic on the date fixed. This loan will raise the obligations of the company to nearly $400,000,000, and the annual fixed charges with exenses of administration will become nearly $20, 000,000. At this rate $42,500,000 "in cash will not last very long, even with the ad dition of $20,000,000 said to le on hand. f LATE NEWS. Sir John Kirk ha retired from the posi lion of Briti.-h Agent Consul General at Zanzibar, on account of illties?. Mr. Stanhope, in the liriti-h House of Commons, July 0th, denied that the secret of the Brenan torpedo was divulged in the description published by "Engineering." The inter-University cricket match. Ox ford versus Cambridge, was won by Ox ford by seven wickets. Several failures of sugar planter in 11 a vanna are announced. The British Government are likely to propose that County Court Judges should be empowered to reduce rent-s for fixed periods in Ireland. Eton beat Harrow by five wickets in the University cricket match, July 10th. J3 In the Divorce Court, London, July 10th, the petition aaint Lord Lonsdale was dismissed, coun.-el admitting that there had been no adultery. Four cases of small-pox broke out at Sydney, N. S. W., July 12th. Mr. Gladstone has been presented with a magnificent silver casket front hi Amer ican admirer. A London dispatch of July 14th says: A deputation from the Anti-Sugar Bounties Association will ask the Government to allow the whole quetion of bounties to be discussed in the House of Commons. Mr. Chesson, in a letter in the London "Times," July 3d, complains ol French war vessels kidnapping natives from the New Hebrides and Solomon Islands. A London dispatch of July loth says: Sir Henry Holland, not without hesitation, has decided that the evidence is insufficient to justify him in removing Sir J. Pope Hennery from the Governorship of the Mauritius, but he has cautioned him as to future behavior. It is not likely now that any alteration will be made in the Queen's title, owing to the coolness of the Colonies about the matter. Paw, July 15th. Sir G. Berry and Sir Saul Samuel had a conference yesterday with the directors of the French Postal Department, on the q nest ion of the transit rates on Australian mails, when it was ar ranged that the latter should report on the matter to the Minister of Finance, whose decision will be given a week hence. The Agents General have therefore modi fied their plans, and will now await the reply of the French Government before proceeding to Rome. The suggestion of the Ostend route, made by the agents at the first interview, was used as a means of pressure, and it is now expected that the concession akfd for will be granted. The French Government does not object to a division of the mail matter, providing the traffic is guaranteed on the basis of the convention of 18so. Tito Australia.

The Westinghouse-Horns-by brake failed. The train was too heavy for the light engine, and attained a velocity of seventy miles an hour down the steep declivity. The guard applied the brakes, but without avail, and a points man seeing the danger of the whole train running into the river, turned it on to the siding where it dashed into some trucks. The two carriages nearest the engine were telescoped, and the engine fell over the bank into the river. Wilson, the criver; Rennie, the engineer; Harry Hankins, clerk; a young man and two girls (names unknown) were killed. Fully forty people were injured. As soon as the news of the accident came to hand, a relief train with doctors was dispatched to Peat's Ferry. The driver, Wilson, fell under the engine and was buried in the river mud. The fireman had a miraculous escape. Three persons died almost instantaneously, and two others succumbed during the night. The wounded were taken to Sydney, some being admitted to the hospital. Had it not been for the presence of mind of the pointsman, the whole train would have run into the river, and the re sult would have been disastrous beyond contemplation. "Tli Friend." The August number of "The Friend" is full of interest. On tlie opening page is an article describing the Hawaiian Kingdom as an "Anglo-Saxonizing ma chine," its institutions, civilization and dominant language all being of British origin, as in the United States. The ar ticle goes on to point out to the native Ieople that their true interest lies in a recognition of this inevitable tendency. A dispassionate statement of the salient features of the late crisis for the benefit of foreign readers ; a notice of Professor Dana's visit and other matters of local and denominational interest are dealt with. Honolulu to the Aiorei. Messrs. J. E. Brown & Co., 23 Mer chant street, agents for the Burlington Railway across America, received by the Australia special powers to book passen gers through from Honolulu to the fol lowing ports in the Azores Islands, viz : Flores, Fayal, St. George, Terceira and St. Michaels. Connections are established at Boston with regular traders to the Azores, and arrangaments are being made with a line of French steamers eastward bound from New York to call at the Azores to land passengers. By taking tickets at Honolulu a considerable reduction on fares is made. Bulletin. ftonrtl of Ilealtb Appointments.

The .Vow Constitution. The P. C. Advertiser office has printed the new Constitution in pam phlet form. It is inserted in the "Hono lulu Almanac and Directory," which also contains the old Constitution, and will be old at the old price fifty cents a copy. Rather Unruly Lately. Every foot we travel in a railroad train wives us a greater danger iu some other means of conveyance which is less secure. Our locomotive is not an animal that shies it each Mowing leaf, or that takes its bits in its teeth and gets away from us. It is a piece Df machinery, absolutely controllable, rolling ap and down on a smooth, sure foundation sure except in case of some extraordinary oc currence less likely to occur in your case and nine than a stroke of lightning. Nobody is absolutely safe in this world, but we are relatively safe in a car. Boston Transcript.
