Owing to saucily of water nil parties having water privileges from tlie Maktki Reservoir, are hereby notified that the water will be shut off from said reservoir every day, from 6130 p. U. to 5 A.

The deciphering of ancient manuscripts written on papyri still goes on , under the direction of the Imperial , Austrian Museum, and as the work goes forward it continues to reveal more and more the vastness of the treasure of antiquity. Able men have the immediate supervision of the departments of the work. In the Egyptian division the scientific examination is is aarried on by Dr. J. Krall. Dr. K. Wcssely has control of the classical and Professor Kurabocek of the Irano-Semitic denartments. Among the collectionsaretwcnty valuable papyri relating to, and of the pre- Christian times, which include a letter written in hieratic, style of almost three thousand years ago. There arc also in tbJ?.cplLection a funereal tableau which contains a wen prcscryeu nims. u King Amasis, hieroglyphic legends, a mathematical writing in the demotic character, etc. The Coptic pieces number over one thousand in thrre dia lects. There arc new fragments of the Bible version in the Central Egyptian dialect. One article contains a hitherto unknown speech against Isocrates. Besides these there are poetic, dramatic and philosophical fragments, patristic writings, etc ; also a "Metanoia," written in the beginning of the fourth century, which is alleged to be the oldest Christian manuscript in existence. There arc many political documents, written on papyrus parchment or skin, which are full of interest. One of these, composed during the Sass- an'an occupation of Egypt in the time of Heraclius, is expected to furnish the key for Pehlevi decipherments. Up wards of a thousand manuscripts of the .Arabic papyri have already been read, The oldest dates from the 54th year of the Hegira and another from 90th year. As small matters sometimes bring great results in business we arc pleased to furnish the information that Wells Fargo &Co's Express will hereafter take letters, scaled in the Company's envelopes, to be obtained at their office, up to ten minutes before the steamer sails. Mails sent in this way are delivered sometime before the regular mail in the San Francisco Post Office and as time especially in regard to important letters, is invaluable iubusinass, this change will prove we think more than convenient. The discusion at the business meeting of the Peoples Ice Company yesterday, resulted in a decision to raise the price of ice delivered outside the corporate limits to two cents per pound. Within the city the price will remain at one and one half cents per pound as heretofore, delivered in quanitics of ten pounds or more. The Company is ' gradually .doing what they stated they "would not do before they secured the support of the people so that they could form a monopoly. It is said by those, who allege that they know, that the Goverment dredger will soon be laid on the shelf. The appropriation has been exhausted for some times and the expenses have bi:cn met from other sources. That is to say, the Goverment thought its own mismanagement has been up to its old trick of robbing Peter to pay Paul, Great Land Colonization Scheme. Island of Oalw, Hawaiian Islands. A Property of 115,750 Acres Offered for Sale to a Joint Stock Company, vhich will Sell the same as suitable for Sugar, Rice, Grazing, Homestead, Dairy, Fruit and Other Purposes. 03,SBO Acre in Jt'eo Slmjite and 2, $00 Acrei htltl under Least, at pretent Carrying between 12,000 and 18,000 head of Cattle and 300 Ilortcj and Mule: A large area of this property is suitable, according to locality, for Suar, Rice, Vinyards, Fruit Orchards, nnd small Homesteads, the remainder being fine mountain side grazing ground. Under the proposed afntneements of the Company to be formed an exceptional opportunity is offered for acquiring homesteads, by n system of deferred or gradual payment as may be agreed upon j the whole being within easy reach of Honolulu, the capital city and principal port, with a steadily growing market. CLIMATE. The climate is pre-eminently healthy, the North-cast trades sweeping across the island for the greater part of the year. While there are no available registers barometer, thermometer or rainfall for this particular district, there is no reason to question their strict analogy with that of the Nuuanu Valley, in the same island, and in which Honolulu and its suburbs arc situated, where the rainfall amounts to 33.28 inches per annum from a minimum of 0.94 in March to a maximum of 3.43 in December ; but these figures relating only to the lower levels in and about Honolulu do not by any means represent the rainfall an the Waianae Mountains, which is very much heavier. Thus the temperature may be said to range from 68 to 85 Fahr., varied of course by situation, elevation above the sea, accessibility to trade winds, &c. HONOULIULI RANCH. Containing 4,3250 acres in fee simple. This land is favorably situated, having direct communication with Honolulu by water, distance 10 miles, or by land by a good road, distance 17 miles, the latter offering singular an inexpensive railway track. The water route to Honouliuli is from Honolulu harpor. skirting the reef to Pearl harbor, a magnificent inlet of the Ocean protected by a reef or bar -- . ' -- Willi from 20 fathoms to 3 fathoms protected anchorage, fit for all classes of coasters and yachts. On the west arm df this harbor Honouliuli has a frontage of no less than five miles, all steep-too, with from three to twenty fathoms in front of it. The whole fishing rights of this west arm are part of the property. 4 Honouliuli Ranch is bounded by (he sea and Pearl river on two sides, and extends in a westerly direction to the divide of the Waianae mountains which form a natural boundary so well defined and so difficult to pass as to render fencing orf this line unnecessary. But where Honoulinli adjoins the neighbouring properties, it is securely fenced. There are twenty miles of live wire fence with redwood post, and ten miles batten fence, all in good order and erected within the last seven years Stretching from Pearl harbor and skirting the baje ol Waianae mountains southward and eastward is a plain of about 7,000 acres of rich alluvial soil, eminently suuaoie tne upper portions for sugar and the lower for rice lands. Of these latter, from 3,000 to 4,000 acres may be irrigated by artesian wells, the elevation above high water mark being between 12 and 35 feet. One well sunk in-this district in 1 88 1, to a dept of 186 feet, has yielded unceasingly 2,400 gallons per hour since completion. On the eastern slopes, among the fodt hills of the Waianae mountains arc over 10,000 acres of land, suitable for small farms, vineyards, orchards, &c j several perennial spring, flow through these valleys and ravines, and the extensive traces of taro culture show that in the hands of the old natives there was no lack of water. Wells have been sunk at elevations from 400 to 700 feet above the sea level. Water was found at from 30 to 60 feet below the surface. One is a flowine well ; on the other a windmill suffices to raise drinking water for surrounding nerus. The ravines of the Waianae slope are narrow and readily lend themselves to favoring the construction of storage dams for purposes of irrigation. The Waianae mountains attract or precipitate a sufficient rainfall in ordinary seasons for the maintenance of the present heavily-grassed condition of their slopes, nnd due attention to the forestry will enable them to carry more numerous herds of cattle than those which now fatten hock-deep on the or Bermuda urass. The lower and more opep slopes are suitable for dairy, poultry or fruit raising. They are within easy reach of tne mam roau to Honolulu, and when peopled must soon invite the construc tion of a railway to the capital. The Sugar cane and Rice land of this property is valued at from $100 to ; 4-200 an acre, and maybe taken up in large or small tracts at these fiaures : . the grazing, farm and fruit lands are valued at from $10 to $50 per arce. It 'is at present intended to offer some 10,000 acres of first-class agricultural land for sale, upon convenient terms, at $50,111 acre for colonisation purposes, for resident and improving occupants. THE KAHUKU RAN.CH. Consists of 20,000 acres in fee simple and 5,000 acres Government lease hold, the leasehold having nn unexpired term of 1 7 years, at an annual rental of $455. On the estate is a level tract of land at an elevation of from 10 to 25 feet above sea level, extending from to Laie, a distance of eight miles of sea frontage, and an average breadth of one mile from the sea to the foot hills. This tract is pronounced by competent judges to be excellent Sugar cane land. There-arc already flowing artesian wells on ei her side of this level tract, while near the middle is nn unfailing spring in which the water rises to within slA feet of the surface, in a column 0 at least one foot in diameter, and flows thence to the sea. This proves that nn ample supply may be found for irrigation. There have been offered by Rice growers to the present owner $10,000 a year for 400 acres ol this land, water for cultivation being furnisnTd. A contract has been made to bore five additional artesian wells to comply with this requirement. It may be incidentally noted here that in no case on this island of Oahu has a boring for artesian wells failed if sunk from an elevation not exceeding 32 feet above sea level. There are about 15,000 acres of lands suitable for fruit, small farms, or pasture, on the Kahuku property, estimated as saleable for colonization purposes at from $15 to $30. Kawaiioa and Waiamea Ranches. Contain 33,000 acres surveyed land, and about 20000 acres unsurvcyed, all held on lease having an unexpired term of 24 years, at a yearly rental of $2,200. 1 his rental is at present reduced to $1,700 by sub-letting a few acres of taro (Vet) land. There are 36 miles of new 5 feet wire fence set on California redwood posts. It is fur ther subdivided into paddocks of from 200 acres to 4,000 acres each, enabling the proprietors to pass their stock trom one feeding ground to another as may be advisable. This land is well adapted throughout for fruit growing or pastoral pnrposes; there are several wells with windmills on them to supply water for stock. One reservoir of this kind has been built at the Kawaiioa ranch with a retaining wall 150 feet in length, 100 feet thick at bottom, 5 feet at summit, capable of storing 1,127,500 cubic feet of water, for an outlayof $1,250. This indicates what may be done nt the" Honouliuli Ranch. General Remarks. Kawaiioa and Waiainca ranches ad- KJ'Aiikii.anri.tOBethcr.lorni, ,juu ucrcs of land. The Honouliuli property is distant about twelve miles, but is connected with them by an excellent road. These properties have at pecsent 66 miles of good fencing. The land is well grassed, with a fair proportion of timber throughout. Live stock of all kinds thrive and fatten on the pastures, and by increasing the number of paddocks and working the combined estates systematically ths num bcr of cat 0 and horses on the land might be largely increased. The number of cattle, 12,000 to 15,-000 now on these estates has been al ready mentioned, also 26c head of horse-stock and mules, together valued at $312,000. The horned cattle are bred from "Hereford" and "shorthorn Durham" imported for these estates, nnd they thrive and fatten without any stall feeding or housing. The horse stock is exceptionally good, one Sire, 'Shenadoah' having won over $20,000 as a two-year-old in the United States. There are ;.tso three trotting stallions, two of which cost $1,000 each and there arc unbroken colts and fillies from these siies, some four or five years old, which may be readily broken for saddle or harness. These properties, if united, would give the proposed Company a controlling interest in the Honolulu market, for produce of all kinds, with a steadily-increasing demand ; to which the contracts recently entered into by the Pacific and Oceanic Steamship Companies may prove a valuable stimulant. Indeed it is possible to create a trade with San Francisco for carcases of beef and mutton carried in refrigerating chambers by the Oceanics Steamships. The income from these estates at present, including leases is, $70,000 a year. Moderate calculations show that these figures might be nearly quad rupled. The fishing rights on Pearl harboi pertaining to the Honouliuli estate, now leased for a short term at $1,700, can be rented at $2,500 on the expiration of the present lease. A limestone quarry on the Honouliuli property at present pays a small annual rent, and a royalty on the lime produced. The entire demand for this kingdom may be supplied from this quarry, instead of, as hitherto, importing lime from California. The builders of Honolulu consider this lime superior in quality and preferable to the lime, There is also a fine limestone quarry on Kahuku ranch. The five miles frontage on Pearl harbor spoken of suggests a town site for a summer resort there, the facilities tor yachting and boating being unsurpassed, 'while the climate is nil that can be desired. A vast variety of fruit or timber trees grow with extraordinary rapidity. The whole Eucalyptus family, the algaroba or locust tiee (pseudo-acacia), the tamarind, "alligator pear," guava, bread fruit, &c. Citrous fruits especially thrive without enre or cultivation. Manv ornamental woods known as Koa, Kou, Oliin, &c, grow well. India-rubber (caoutchouc), quinine (cfnchona),'and perhaps above all the Ramie will flourish, each in its suitable locality, which 'may c found on these estates. Proposed pfin for forming a Joint Stotk Louipaw to purchase, sell or pork these Estates. It is proposed to form a Joint Stock Company to buy the properties below, both freehold and lease hold) to !d(vidc them for purchase or lease on convenient terms, and to work the unsold W unlcasctl portions for the benefit of tfie shareholders.
