Water and the rough seas.—We received a letter from W. G. Kawainui of Hakalau, Hilo, Hawaii, telling us of the big rain and the rough seas in that area on the night of the 28th of this past January; a store of a Chinese floated away, and the water and tide reached areas not reached before; the things happening these days are truly something new for our islands.
