Dr. Abbott mentioned two specimens of mills for fanning, or separ ating the grains of coffee from the husks, or shells.

The magnificent ('actus Triangularis, which blooms so richly in front of Mr. O.'s residence, at Honolulu, has not done well. I brought home a specimen which grows finely, and is esteemed a great rarity, though it has not yet bloomed. I trust it will, for then it will bo a rival to the night blooming Cereus of our conservatories, which is valued more than line gold, and parties given in honor of its flowering.

" V T H K P 0 L V N K S I AN. f.llNT., HONOLULU, SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 1844. Sufficient perhaps has already been said to explain the objects of the Polynesian. Yet a few words more may not be amiss. We are aware that there exists in the community an erroneous judgment of our purposes and designs a feeling of suspicion, as if the paper was to be an instrument of evil, a thing of doubtful good. This we conceive to bo premature, and though we prefer to be judg ed according to our works, yet we shall devote a few lines to briefly stating what our aims shall be. Since the year 1840, great and radical changes have occurred. The Hawaiian people have been raised to a rank among earth's nations. A general elevation of char acter, a greater increase and diffusion of wealth, and the luxuries and enjoyments of life have accompanied, or more properly speaking have been some of the causes of this moral revolution. In the general increase of knowledge, the foreign community has also participated. In w...

It is particular ly interesting to us Polynesians; because it treats of phenomena which come under our peculiar cognizance, and the hints therein, may be an inducement for others to prose cute the inquiries which the author has so well begun. Fully to understand them, the work itself should bo studied. We however shall trans fer portions of it to our own columns. As 'samples of his powers of description we give the following extracts. Speaking of Tahitian scenery, he says: "Iris on the plains at the termination of these ravines, that the villages of the natives are usually situated, and tho voyager who has coasted the shoies of Tahiti, can never forget the Eden beauty of some of these spots.

T ii j: v u is v n i: s i a n Junt.,. to THE POLYNESIAN. HONOLULU, SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 184-1. Certain French writers in their zeal for creating an interest anion:; the commercial classes of France, in Polynesia, have not unfrequently been led to put forth exagger ated or distorted statements. Individuals, us well as the nation, will meet with disappoint ment, if from statements like those we give below, they have been led prematurely to embark in commercial or colonial enterpri ses. It is pleasant to witness the extension of civilization in these seas, by a nation so wise and powerful as France, but the pion eers in the undertaking will reap suffering and disappointment. Whether the govern ment itself will consider the acquisition of the few islands the French have already oc cupied, as worth the treasure expended up on them, is yet doubtful. It is evident from a variety of documents which we have seen, that their present importance bus been great ly magnified. Our readers will smile ...

Boston, 1312. (Continued from our last.) It has been a common bclicfthat the growth of coral was very rapid, and that the coral insects were silently but speedily not only giving birth to new reefs, islands, but even continents were destined by their labors to rise above the waters. Later observations have disproved this theory, and it has been ascertained that the increase of coral is ex ceeding slow. Probably the growth of coral operates in the sea in the same manner, and with proportionate effect to the growth of vegetation ashore. In fac...

T II K J' 0 L V N E S I A N . June,. 14 COM MUNICAT ED. FROM OUR AMERICAN CORRESPONDENT. NUMBER 3. New York.,- 1843. JSbj dear Editor, You have, from time to time, doubtless seen notices of the new Epis copal church, the Trinity, now in the course of erection in Broadway. The plates of it will give you a better idea of its exter nal appearance, than any description of mine.; For this country it is a splendid edi fice, and will form quite an era in our church architecture. It is a miniature cathedral. 1 have seen larger in Peru and Brazil, but, without exception, this will be the best spe cimen of church architecture on our conti nent. The church possesses immense wealth and is able to build even more magnificent ly, but it is at the expense of many charities to which its resources were formerly direct ed. This fact causes the building to be an eye-sore to many, they thinking that money can be more usefully employed in sustaining their missionaries, and destitute churches, than in sc...
