A light-house has been erected on the inner edge of the Western Reef, bounding the entrance of the channel into Honolulu Harbor. The light is a Fresnel of the fourth order, at an elevation of 26 feet above the sea level, and can be seen from the deck of an ordinary-sized vessel at a distance of 9 nautical miles, in a radius from S. E. by E. to W. from the light-house.

From the light-house the spar or fairway buoy bears (magnetic) S. 11° W., 67 cables; the eastern end of the new wharf, N. 350° E., 1} cables; Diamond Point, s. 56° E.; Barber's Point, S. 88° W., and the eastern corner of the custom-house, N. 15° E., near to which corner another light-tower has been erected, at an elevation of 28 feet above the sea level, and can be seen about 5 miles out at sea. The light in this tower is green.

To enter the harbor by night, bring these two lights in one, bearing N. 15° E. (magnetic), and keep them in one till within a cable's length of the light-house on the reef, when by hauling a point to the eastward you will avoid the end of the spit on which the light-house is built, extending off from it about 25 feet to the eastward. Steer for the east end of the new wharf, and when half way between the light on the reef and the now wharf, keep away N. W. and along the esplanade to an anchorage inside. All bearings magnetic.

HILO, HAWAII. A light-house has been erected at Paukaa Point, entrance to Hilo Harbor, Hawaii. The light is at an elevation of fifty feet above the sea level, a plain fixed light, and can be seen easily ten miles out at sea. From the light-house the outer point of the reef bears S. 58° E.; inner point of the reef, S. 39o E.; Governess' flagstaff (about the center of the harbor), S. 220 E.; Leleiwi Point, S. 790 E.; and Makahanaloa Point, N. 20 W. Bearings magnetic.

KAWAIHAE, HAWAII. For the anchorage at Kawaibae a white light, about fifty feet above the sea level, has been erected at a point bearing from the northeast corner of the reef N. E. by N. 4 N. The light can be seen at a distance of ten miles out at sea. With this light bearing E. N. E. there is good anchorage in eight fathoms of water about a quarter of a mile from the shore. All bearings magnetic.


LAHAINA, MAUI. A light-house has been erected at the landing, port of Labaina. The window on the sea side of the light-room is of 20 x 24-inch glass, with red glass at the north west and southeast end. The colored glass stands at equal angles, side and front, and a vessel in ten fathoms of water will have two bright lights for abont half a mile each way from directly in front of the light-house. At a greater distance it will show a colored light until the lights almost appear like one, or the red light like a retlection from the other light. The light towards Molokai is the brightest, so that the lights nov: have the appearance of a large and small light close together. The lights stand about 26 feet above the water, and can be seen across the Lanai Channel.
