A seero eiigagi ment between the Itoers and the

Itoers wero reinforced by a detachment from tho
Orange Free State. The British mnde a ilesiteratu
bat unsuccessful charge and were compelled to
llcjht their rnij hick to camp. The slaughter for a
time w.ih fearful. The camp is being fortified at
eery lHiint. General Uoberts succeds General
Colloy. The Itoers attnektd tho Diitish at Walt
kerstroom, but were beaten oil after a two hours'
engagement. The British loss is slight. Com

rohe and killed.
The advance corps of engineers for inaugurating

got out of the building with ladders.
General GaViield called at the Executive Man
sion on the 1st instant and paid his respects to
President Itajes and the Cabinet. The President
and President-elect then concluded to convene the

From Our Hilo Correspondent
Kuitou StTUimw Prkss: It would seem that
for the past few weeks that wo were excluded from
the world, not receiving our mails as usual. All
were naturally anxious to learn how friends and
relatives are in Honolulu. We have had no cases
of small-pox here and shall keep a very strict
watch in order t keep it out. Since my last let
ter Mauna Loa has broken out afresh and is morn
active than it has been for tvo mouths. The threo
flows can bo very distinctly seen from here, and
are thought to be within eight miles from Hilo.
Two of the Hows are moving towards Puna and
one towards Hilo; still we do not think we shall
bo harmed. If the smull-poi wero within so short
a distance we might lie alarmed. A building is
nearly completed on Coco.imit Island on which to
place patients in case we should be so unfortunate
as to havp any small-pox. No better place could
have been chosen. Hilo never was in a more
healthy condition than nt present. We all trust
that the small-pot will soon dis'tpjioar from Hono
lulu. Your lto-.rd nf Health deserve great credit
for doing as they have done. Wo still need rain.
I suppose the WailuLu has not In-eu so low in
man) i ears. J. A. M,
yJTicK following is from u recent issue of tho
San FrancUco Gill:
Koitou MoitiiMi Call : At a meeting held here
by the carp?nters of Honolulu, It was resolved to
communicate to joa, mid through j our valuable I
pijier to the cirpenters and public, the manner in '
which carpenters have been dujuil to comedown I
here to work on the King's nilace, hoping vou will
insert in our luper the following facts: In jour
issue of Thursday, December 2nd, there appeared '
an advertisement for six men to come to Honolulu 1
to work 011 the ptlaco. A large number of men 1
applied, and six of them were engaged and scut
nere, instead 01 worKiiig 011 me palace, iney were
set on tho roughest kind of outside work, exposed
to a tropica! sun. The advertisement also in
lluenced a large number of carpenters to come
hero with the eiix-ctuiim of getting work, where is
they are down here now Idle (unless they are will
lug to work for inferior wages), and ery oor
nrosiircts for work ill tho future. Also, the, cost i,t
living in this country is so high that the difference
in wages is not equivalent, nearly every article of
famil) consumption liug imported from tho
