LATEST PROM THE ISLANDS.

[By Eleoteio Tblegbaph—Copyright. 1 [Per Press Association.]

SYDNEY, September 27

(Received September 27, 1889, at 1 p.m.)

When the Lubeck left Apia everything was quiet. Admiral Rimberley and his staff left the island for San Francisco in the last mail steamer. Prior to his departure he was the recipient of several presents from Mataafa. The Auckland schooner Lancashire La?s, which was wrecked at Pagopago Harbor in July last, has been floated. It is reported that the Union Shipping Company are considering the desirableness of tendering for the French service between Samoa, Tahiti, and Honolulu.

The lawlessness of the Samoan Natives is contradicted, and it is asserted that the police force established by Mataafa has done good and useful work. During the cruise of the schooner Saucy Jack among the Islands, one of the sailors named O'Brien developed into a'fiend incarnate and murderously assaulted the crew on several occasions. On the voyage to Sydney he nearly killed the cook, and for that offence was handcuffed. He then fired the ship, jumped overboard, and was drowned. The crew managed to extinguish the flames before much damage was done.
