POTATOES. During the past month no shipments of potatoes
have been made to California. The new crop of Koloa potatoes
we understand arc ripe and fit for market, but the low price at
which they rule in San Francisco must prevent any shipments
'thither at present, Ky the latest advices frorn that port, we
loam that sweet potatoes were dull at 2 and 2 cents per pound.
The Molokai and Niihau potatoes shipped over by recent vessels
have proved a failure so far as heard from, while the keeping
qualities of the Koloa potatoes are much superior. ' The Yankee
brought several bags of Tombex potatoes which were ordered by
the Native Agricultural Sjciety, and the same have been distrib-
uted on the different Islands, to improve the crop. We sec no
reason why by the introduction of proper seed, the best quality
of potatoes cannot be raised here. We qaote potatoes at $1 00,

Tiiak IIelvven,' tlie day . at length has dawned
when the Hawaiian Nation can boast a free press,
untrammelled hy gQTernment ' patronage or party
plalges, unbiassed by ministerial frowns or favors a
press whose aim shall be the advancement of the nation
in its commercial, political and social condition. The
day that witnessed the abolition by Liholiho Iolani,
of the tyrannous System of tabus, which had crushed
with" despotic power, from. the, most ancient days,
the liberties of this people will not be longer remem
bered than that which witnessed the advent of free
thought and free principles throughout this group. (
- That such a press", truly independent and free, has
long been needed here, all must admit ; but to estab
lish one on a : permament basis, and to conduct it in
such a manner as to give general satisfaction and
produce good results in a community made up of such
various elements as ours, is an undertaking of so great
risk that few have been willing, to attempt it. It is
needed in- the : family to enliven the social evening
circle. It is heeded in the counting room of the mer
chant whose eye glances instinctively to its marine
and commercial news. It is needed in the farm house
and on the distant plantation to convey thence what
ever is transpiring at the metropolis and ; throughout
the kingdom. It is needed by the "wealthy ship
owner abroad who seeks reliable advices from his
I cruising vessels. It is needed in the palace and the
government halls, that the rulers of the nation may
feel the throbbing of the public heart and guide their
councils with discreetness: And lastJyv it is' needed
by the intelligent native who is seeking to extend the
sphere of his Imowledge by the acquisition of our noble
mother tongu e. We want a medium for the expression
of public thought- some mirror to portray our nation
al features some fit representative to bear to the en-
But in a community such as this, made up of in
habitants from every portion of the, globe, from the
frozen shores of northern Russia to the most southern
portions of Africa, America or Australia, what - can
be looked,fc-r but diversity, of thought and opinion on
every subject that may bo embraced in the columns''
of a newspaper, whether it be on morals- politics,
religion or reforms. One perhaps desires a paper to
commence a fierce attack on .the government and
every member of it; another would have excluded
from its columns everything that bears the semblance
of the teachings of morality and religion, and devoted
wholly to commercial; intelligence ; while; a third
would frown on every item that causes mirth and on the
notices of public amu sements, but 'would have its col
umns wholly devoted to morality and religion.
In the outset of our enterprize, we might as well
have a distinct understanding with pur patrons. To
each and all of theni wc respectfully say, that in the
form and style and general management of this paper,
and its contents, we must be left to our own judg
ment, to act with entire independence. To commence
on any other basis, would be but to render our. sheet
what every former attempt has been, the tool of a
party or the mouthpiece of a minister. :; Suggestions
will always be cordially,, received ; dotation never.

is all wcscck, to show when occasion demands it, that
the political wisdom of the nation is not all centered

This is Jiat we shall aim at to give a truthful

officials opii to animadversion or reprehension, the
errors of tb3 former will be plainly pointed out , and

that may lie in our track. Wo cannot expe-:t always

Of His Majesty Kamehameha IV.
This event took place on . Thursday the 19th of
June, in the Stone Church in this city. The day was
fine, and the weather characteristic of our cli
mate, clear, - pleasant '-and warm, but fanned by the
cool and refreshing, trades without which life here
as a holiday, and flogs were displayed from the, ship
ping, consular offices and public buildings.S - .
The church in which the ceremonies were perform
ed had been decorated on the . day previous, and
graceful festoons of .orange boughs,' jessamine and
evergreen hung from the ceilings, the. galleries,
and o round the columns and pulpit. - The front of
the building, the spire and the arch entrance to the
churchyard were also decorated with flags and ever
greens, while the avenue from the church to the pal
ace was strewed with green rushes. . , v; v
Long before the hour appointed, every scat in the
church was taken up. The number inside must have
been near 3,000, while as many more natives could
not. obtain admission! At half past eleven o'clock
the procession from the palace entered the church,
led by the bride - Miss Emma Rooke, who was ac
companied by Dr. Rooke, her father, and three
bridesmaids, consisting of Her R..IL Arictoria, Miss
Lydia Paki, and Miss Mary Pitman. Immediately
following, came His Majesty accompanied by his fa
ther the Governor of Oahu, and numerous attend
ant13 bearing some twcnty'AaAit'?, the ancient
insignia of royalty, ?.; :
Tiie Ceiiemoxy. The marriage was conducted -after
the beautiful form of the churcli of England, the
Rev. Dr. Armstrong officiating, both in the Hawaiian
and English language. An : altar covered with rich
figured silk, with gold trimmings had been erected
for the occasion. -The service,' through entirely new
to all engaged in it, was performed with credit to
each. The kneeling of the royal bridegroom and
his bride before the altar and. exchanging their vows
before the audience was so different from the simple
custom usually observed here in marriage, that it
must have left its impression on all. The ceremonies
occupied about half an hour. : - ;
: His Majesty, who appeared in excellent health,
was dressed in uniform, with sword, &c. He is
now 22 years of age, arid in the second year of. his
reign, it being about eighteen months since he as-
Tiie Quee:;. Emma Rooke, the present queen of
the Hawaiian Islands, is the adopted daughter of
Dr. T. C. B. Rooke, of this city. She is 20 years of
age, of chief descent, and has received the - best En
glish education to be obtained at these Islands. It
is not Saying too much that she is probably better fit-ted-and
more- suitable for the station to which she
has been elevated than any young lady, in the King
dom. She will carry to the drawing-rooms of the
palace the rjrace and accomplishments T of refined
and well educated society On, the occasion of her
marriage she was tastefully dressed in the richest
white embroidered silk, selected at Stewart's in
Broadway, New-York, j which ' with an elegantly

Doibts have been expressed to us in regard to the
propr cty of publishing a portion of our issue for the
Ilawaian race. It may be that such a publication is
not deiiatded by them, but we think it is, and are
williuat our own risk to make the trial." The truth
is, thj' experiment of a sterling weekly paper, partly,
in EnilisK and partly in Hawaiian, ought to have
beend&deby the Government years ago, instead of

been opened for years, but beyond a few elementary
volupife, and some charitable attempts to provide
newq ijers for them, they have been and still are
left t grope about, seeking light but finding little or
none. There are intelligent natives here and through
out thl group," who are desirous of knowing what is
transjifing throughout the world, and who, finding
their rfrn dialect too limited; are striving to learn the
EngliiiJ language. Such are willing to pay for a pa
per acipted to them, cost what it may. And though
the eji?riment may not return to us its cost, yet, if
at tbrnd of the year our native list of subscribers is
no laver than to-day, we shall rest satisfied with our
effort in their behalf. ' .-:" . ;. 7

The pAH.CE.Since the death of tlie late Kins: Ka
mehameha III, the Palaceand grounds have under
gone a great change. The paper hangings,- furniture
and ornaments are exceedingly tasteful, and givevto
the interior of the building a -rich arid gorgeous , air,'
of which it was formerly devoid. Its present appear
ance is a credit to the King: arid the nation, and
mus c elicit"" the admiration of visitors. " In the libra
ry of His Majesty we noticed a choice collection of
some of the most popular English authors historical
and political and if even the half of them are read
and studied by him, the effect cannot fail to be bene
ficial in his admuiistrationC The dwelling, occupied
by their Majesties, which is a separate building from
the Palace, has been recently erected; andis also el
egantly; furnished arid in keeping with the latter. '
- The PnESENTAnoN.-At nine o'clock their Majes
ties entered the reception rooms, accompanied by the
bridesmaids and grooms. The Queen and the, Prin
cess Victoria, we noticed, were dressed very similarly ;
in white satin, covered with sUveand wrought lace,
the former having in addition a profusion of feather
ornaments. In the presentation the "American and
French Commissioners took precedence,- (the British
Commissioner being absent,) and after them the naval
officers, consuls, ladies and gentlemen; - About half
an hour was occupied in "nresentinrrrnfW irTiirh their
Majesties led in the dance,' which was kept up till
about twelve o'clock." " . ' ' i
