connected. At that time the only pilot to the new
harbor was the King, Kamehameha I, who, in his
royal double canoes, each seventy-five feet in length,
manned by two- hundred brawny arms, always first
boarded each vessel, and taking command,, brought
her witltin the harbor. Those were fabulous days
when the royal pilot stood up, and with his sword in
hand, waved the motion of a hundred paddles-
Tho brothers Winship were as true patriots as ever
sailed under the American flag, and with the consent
of that noble King Kamehameha I, they determined
to celebrate their nation's birthday. Each vessel fired
a national saluteone in the morning, another at
meridian, and the third at sunset. An accident on
that day is etill remembered, that the hand of one of
the seamen was blown off in the discharge of a can
non on: ship board, and similar accidents recurred
on each of the four succeeding celebrations of the 4th,
in Honolulu, and one of the natives then injured is
still living on the island.
In the afternoon, a royal banquet was prepared,
such as the days of Kamehameha I. only witnessed,
and mats and tables spread on the open '-Iain, just in
rear of the Catholic Church lot or near the residence
of Loxiis-AiitLon, Esq." It sliuuia foo-etcvtoil that.from
where Nuuanu street now is, towards the Palace, was
then an open plain, without a dwelling, the only houses
were along the beach and up the valleys. The King's
residence was in an enclosure .where the fort now
stands and which included the land now occupied by
the Hudson Bay Co. His house stood just where the
store of the Co. is located. A grove ofcocoanut trees,
long since cut down, stood on the site of, the fort and
Robinson & Co. 's ship yard.
His Majesty,, tho warm friend of the foreigner, had
ordered his servants to prepare liberally for the feast,
and the tables and mats were loaded with all that
royal beneficence could provide.-' It was a gand
day. All the foreigners, including those connected
with tho vessels in port, sat down. There too, was
the noble Kamehameha the first, and his chiefs and
his priests . There waa Mr.- Marin (or Manini as now
called) and John Young, Governor of Hawaii names
venerated in Hawaiian History. There, too, was the
young Prince Liholiho, then about nineteen years of
I ago, from whom, at the earnest entreaty of foreign-
o.i!v Kiri had removed the sacred tabu so that ho
liiiglit joL) in. ih'n'L oihitifs of theday.l Ten thousand

NOTES OF TIIE WEEK.
A most brutal murder was committed at Kaneohe
on the night of July 2nd by one or two Chinaman.
The murdered was a native named: Kauwa, a - quiet
hard working man, who finding his taro stolen, set up
to watch on the above night, and was murdered by
the thieves. His body showed that there had been a
several struggle v and had twenty or more wounds,
inflicted by a large knife. He died almost immedi
ately. Mr. Parke, the Marshal, visited the place the
next day, and upon the evidence obtained, arrested
four Chinamen, who will be tried at the present
term of-the Supreme Court.
Election. At a meeting of the members of Fire

chosen officers for the ensuing year: W. E. Cutrell,

r Who would ever hrudreamed that the eccentric,
world-renowned Lola Alontes, the Countess of Lands-
felt, would have honored Honolulu with her pre--senc?.
Yet. so it is. She. was a passenger in the
schooner Falkenburg, which touched at our port on
Monday and she embraced the occasion afforded to
spend a few hours on shore. She has been spending a
year or more in New South Wales and is now return
ing to California. The expression of her counte
nance was pleasing, but seems to show S careworn
look. We should judge her to be about forty
Robbery. On Friday evening; last the residence
of Mr. Geo. Williams was entered while he was at
the Ball at the Courthouse, and robbed of $800 in
gold, belonging to the Haw. Agricultural Society, of
which Mr. Williams is Treasurer. The money was
placed in a bureau, and though the drawer was
locked, another drawer above was left unlocked.
Now it strikes us that when there are safe places of
deposit, such as the Custom House vaults, where no
charge is made for deposits, there can be no excuse
for keeping the funds of a Society or even of an indi
vidual so exposed. No clue has been obtair.f i to the

a model steamer, and a perfect seaboat. During her
voyage from San Francisco to this port, she made
200 miles per day under sail, and the entire passage
was made in twelve and a half days. She will sail
for the Amoor river about Saturday next. v

Friday of last week was the anniversary, of the
Independence of the United States of America, and
it was celebrated in a manner which every American
in Honolulu must acknowledge, was appropriate to
the event. Young America with its usual go-ahcad-ativeness
commenced the festivities on the first open
ing of the day, "when half the world lies buried in
oblivion." Obeying the words of the Re volutionary
J matron to a reluctant son, they begged, borrowed, J omen of ler future success

hearty welcome from his assembled countrymen, who
"with onelaccord, responded to the extemporaneous

America" on such a day might be an auspicious
&fA luau or native feast was given on the 2nd of
July at Moanalua, about six miles from Honolulu by
Prineo L. Ivamehameha, at wliich a number of
-lad!c3 and gentlemen from town were present. Every
thing passed off "with satisfaction till the introduction
of certain prostitutes, whose presence was supposed
necessaiy to enliven the occasion witlr a- series of
hula dances. We understand that the greater por
tion of the ladies left the immodest sight, thus giving
a gentle rebuke to those who introduced them. Are
these exhibitions to be revived under royal patronage ?
Are the ladies of Honolulu to have such entertainments
prepared for them ? ,
We remember two or three years ago, when hula
exhibitions became quite popular in town, that com
plaint iyas made against those who introduced them
sxi.-l th?. authorities put a stop to them, as being inde
cent, and in open violation of the law." Is it any less
a violation of the law that the hulas are now exhibit
ed under royal patronage than by a private citizen ?
If it is intended to revive the public exhibition of
the national shows and sports of fifty years ago, let
the . public know it. Let the existing statute be
repealed, let the largest liberty be given to all with
out any distinction, let a select company of prostitutes
be licensed by the Interior Department, and let them
I appear in public in the ancient style of the dance.
