Mr. de la Vergne has long been known as a writer of promise and this work vrill add to his reputation. In some of the poetry there is the ring of literature and the stories are clever compositions. Here is the sonnet on Leahi, which is one of the best things in the book: As lies the Sphinx upon old Egypt's sand In silence deep while slow the years unfold; E'en so thou watchest where the waters hold Their sway the wraves slow marching on the land Till lines of foam are stretched along the strand. Thou seest with a glance assured and bold, The secret sea beneath thy feet un unrolled; While spirits of the deep thou dost command. Or croucheth like the lion of the seas Though years have changed thy fiery heart to stone. Below the plain is filled with tropic trees, While from the flowering shrubs and plants is blown A heavy fragrance on the languid breeze; Yet 'mid the beauty, thou art stern, alone. GOOD WATER. Report to the Quartermaster General of the Army. (Army and Navy Journal). Quartermaster General Ludington gives a few details of the new depots in the islands, to which we have fallen heir so strangely. Lieutenant Colonel Ruhlen, in charge at Honolulu, reports that he has secur ed the necessary office rooms and store houses for use of department head quarters and depot, and also about fif teen acres of ground for a corral. He has organized and placed in service the Government mules and wagon transportation. The only resources of the country for building material are stone and sand. The stone is a very hard and brittle volcanic rock or lava, resembling in color blue limestone and in texture a very hard, gritty limestone. Every thing else requisite for construction work, except stone and sand, will have to be imported from the Pacific coast. The lime used is brought from Califor nia, but the cement is imported Port land, brought usually as ballast in sail ing vessels direct from Europe. No bricks are made, those in use having been brought in ships as ballast from the Pacific coast. A limited quantity of lumber is Tvept on hand in local yards, but the whole supply in Hono lulu today does not probably exceed 1,000,000 feet of all kinds. The price for which it is sold is not unreason ably high. All the "water heretofore used by the troops in camp and at the Quartermas ter's corral is that furnished by the city -water supply plant. The source of supply is artesian wells, found every where on this island; the -water bear ing sand or gravel stratum being en countered at a depth of from 200 to 300 below sea level, and the water usually flows to the height of 32 feet above sea level when confined in tubes. Almost the entire irrigation system of the Isl and of Oahu is supplied with water from these artesian wells. The water obtained from these wells appears to be pure and free from any objection able taste. OLD ANNUITIES. Spanish Discoveries in Going Over the Books. The Spanish Government has just made some queer discoveries in the course of an investigation of its ac counts to determine where new econo mies might be introduced. It seems that in 1S37 annuities were granted to a number of nuns, the youngest of whom was at that time seventeen years of age and the oldest sixty-six. Not withstanding the fact that the ages of the annuitants would now range 'be tween seventy-eight and 120 years, none of them has apparently died, for the pensions, amounting in all to 90, 000 pesetas a year, have been drawn regularly ever since they were grant ed. The Church authorities have been asked for an explanation and for proofs that the nuns are still alive, failing which the latter will be scheduled as dead.
