r IF V I". I; t'-. f I 18 and from that time to the present, Mr. French has been constantly engaged in the manufac ture, doing most of the labor himself, and hiring but very little. Of course the quan tity made has been limited, but the demand has been steadily increasing, and be intends to make 100,000 bricks this year. The bricks made by Mr.French are every way equal to the imported Bristol article.and enmp -ro oefim.ited superior. They com mand the same price as the imported, and dealers readily take them at 5w per mou sand they weigh three pounds each. The sand is not quite so white as the brick, which contains a portion of white pipe-clay to give it adhesiveness. The great secret of the manufacture, for which the $1,500 was paid, is a process making the mixture rise similar to bread, and rendering it porous. . A brick weighing one pound and one weighing four pounds, may be made of the same size, and in the same mould. . . ' - The sand is about four feet deep and cov ers little ...

HONOLULU, JUNE 22, 1S5Q, TT n Mic KrriMER INFLEXIBLE- As COf reel data 0,r" ascertaining, the practicability of long voyages by steamers is of great importance, we give below the result of a three year's cruise f th above named ship, from the London Times. Several important particulars are ob- ervable in lb extract of her cruise, among which we will particularize, the distance, 7.993 knots, per ton of coals, and the length or her run, 5,502 miles, on a single coaling, on one occasion, and 5,356 miles on anoiher. At this rate of consumption, a voyage of 5,000 miles can be performed with 6S0 tons of coal ; end as coal is a. heavy article, the storage room required for a voyage of that length, would leave, in steamers of 2,000 tons, room for nliout 1,500 tons of merchandise. These facts, obtain ed from actual experience, are important to be known at this moment, when some of the most magnificent routes for steamers are subjects of i...

1 it V 4 i 26 THE POLYNESIAN. HONOLULU, JUNE 29, 1850. Lime. As the price of this indispensable arti cle haa advanced to $3 per barrel, in Honolulu, and its use is so extensive, it has become of con siderable consequence that no more than a pro per proportion be used in the making or mortar. We are not aware that precise experiments have ever beeu made in this place, by which that pro portion could be ascertained, at least, none have been made public, for the benefit of those inter ested. In some cases, we have known an equal quantity of lime and sand used in the coinKsi- tion of mortar, and observed that the result was a soft crumbling substance, that was broken by the slighrest violence. From a lato American paper w e have extract ed the following, which is well worthy the atten tion of builders ; and we trust that a series of experiments may be made known, for t&e bene fit of the public. If a proportion or one-toqnn, one-eighth or one-tentb, of our coral lime, will make stron...
