SATURDAY OCT. 3, 1885 AX AVTIIOH'S VAttXIVAl Honolulu is a city that is essentially dependent upon herself for Iter amusements. It is only at irregular periods that the outside world contributes to our enjoyment, and in these instances thccost of bringing amusements to our shores is so great that those who venture here are mostly stranded troupes who take desperate chances to retrieve their fortunes. Honolulu is not large enough to sustain a theater, and besides we do not have the disposition t ) sustain regular amusements. There are several causes for this state of things, which we need not here enter upon. What we wish to call the attention of our citizens to at present is the advisability of fostering our home amusements, which must largely take the place of those that most other cities of our size enjoy from the out side world. An object must always follow the labor and interest necessaiy to the get ting up of public entertainments. In the professional world a living to the actors engaged is the immediate object; but in a place like Honolulu the object must be different, yet, nevertheless an object, It is fit and proper then, that the object of our home amusements generally should result in the aid and furtherance of charitable institutions. This has always been the object of our home amusements. Socials, festivals, concerts, and even theatrical companies organized here have generally been for the benefit of these home institutions. To extend the scope and usefulness of our home amusements should be the constant endeavor of our citizens. "Make your children laugh with innocent entertainment, and you will never weep over their deeds in after life," is at least a laudable Greek maxim, even if it is not a strictly logical one. These remarks naturally lead us to the consideration of the newest departure in future home amusements in Honolulu, which was mentioned in our local columns yesterday. We refer to the proposed Author's Carnival, for the benefit of the Honolulu Library, which the promotors propose to hold about the month of February next provided our citizens give them the proper encouragement and aid. 1 nese merary carnivals nave oeen a permanent success in the cities of the United States for many years, and those of us who have attended them can testify to the lasting good influences they have exerted upon the young in every city where they have been given, These carnivals 'present our children with a map of the leading literary lights and their works in the .same manner that a geography presents a colored map of a state or nation to the pupil. There is this difference, however, that the carnival parades the living characters of the history, which the geographical maps mention in the printed context. We doubt not but that many of us who consider ourselves familiar with the leading novelists and poets of modern literature, would soon find ourselves asking one another questions as to this character or that, if a carnival is gotten up here. During the early periods of the fight against the Chinese in San Francisco the property owners were generally to be found advocating the cause of Chinese immigration, but as the results of Chinese competition have entailed themselves upon the prosperity of that city the properly owners are adding their strength and arguments to the laboring masses, and are demand ing redress lor the property depreciations which they have themselves helped a precipitate. The San Francisco Bulltlin in a lengthy article on ''Chinatown," after setting fortli the dangers of Chinese immigration to property generally, concludes with the following remarks : "More than one hundred property-owners were interviewed during the past week, and they were all of one opinion, and that is that they must leave, their property must be disposed ol to Chinamen and in many instances at the Chinaman's own terms." r wi Mortuary Jteport, The total number of deaths reported for the month of September was 47, distributed as follows : Under I year. . .

More than 10.000 fragments of ancient records have been dug up from the sands of Ecvpt, where they have rested embalmed during nine centuries, not very much the worse for their interment. The history of these venerable documents is remarkable. Prof. Karabacck supposes that they must at one time have formed part of the public archives of El Fayoum, and that the bulk of these archives perished in .1 great conflagration, such as destroyed the great library at Alexandria. The fellaheen of those days seem to have risen in revolt against their natural enemy, the tax-gatherer, and possibly they associated together the tax-collector and the archives as emblems of the same extortion. It Prof. Karabacck is right, they set fire to El Fayoum and its documentary treasures without compunction, and these 30,000 papyri and parchments, some of them charred, by fire, alone remained of the collection. Prof. Karabacck and his coadjutors will have their hands full of work for some time to come in classifying what has come to their hands. The Professor makes a preliminary division of the manuscript into grqups comprising eleven different languages, more than one of which will be absolutely new to the well-educated reader. It is not surprising to learn that the key for deciphering those of the manuscripts which are styled has yet to be discovered. Merely to decipher those fragments which are written in the more familiar tongues of Coptic, Hebrew, Syrica, Persian and Arabian requires polyglot accomplishments far from common even among German scholars.

The manufacture and sale of papyrus was a state monopoly, and it ended, as monopolies often do, in driving trade elsewhere. The day when paper began to take the place of the papyrus plant was perhaps the seal of the commercial decline of Egypt. Hut that all refinement was not crushed out of the Egyptians who peopled El Fayoum, may be interred from the numerous fragments of manuscripts of authors comprised in the collection. Among them is a unique specimen of ancient manuscript a fragment of Thucydides, supposed to be earlier by seven centuries than the earliest extant manuscript of that author. Altogether, the El Fayoum archives may be expected to prove one of the most wonderful discoveries in this age of discoveries. London Times, Commrrelitl Grouping. It is reported that Austro-Hungary is to enter into a Custom Union with Germany. If so, this will be the first of the National Commercial Groupings which are threatened. The invitation to join was extended by Germany, it is said, as a countermove against France, whicluhas lately increased the duties on wheat to the detriment of Austria. There has beqn a tendency also to absorb Spain, if the recent row over the Caroline Islands docs not lead to a rupture. It is impossible to tell where this Commercial Grouping is going to end. Russia, if she did not sell so much wheat to England, might also be induced to come in. The other groupings which have been suggested, but so far only dimly outj lined, are of England and her Colonies, in all parts of the world, and of the United States and all the nations of both the American Continents, excluding of course Canada. It is quite evident that commercial changes of a vciy extensive character are impending. France has always pursued a peculiar policy, She has two tariffs one the general, which runs against' the world at large, and the other, the conventional. The latter is in the nature of a special agreement with a particular nation. The principle at bottom is the common ccmmercial one of making concessions to large customers, .S". A Bulletin.

The Pall Mall Budget of July 31st (the weekly edition of the Pall Mall Gaseete) publishes an abstract of the laws of thirty-eight States and Territories of the United States for the punishment of crimes similar to those revealed in England by the Gazette's recent startling disclosures. The digest was prepared by 15. JJrainerd of the Philadelphia Afavs. It shows that there exists, even in the States where civilization is in its cruder forms, a higher appreciation of woman, expressed in laws made in response to the demands of public sentiment, than is to be found in English society, honey-combed with the crimes whose existence must eventually cause the downfall of the civilization which develops it.
