Feinnlc aiotirtllrfur- Hchools."
.Ono of the most bopcCuL indications of jm
prbvemen in curbed acatlonal Bystcm is the
eetablihhment of female boarding schools, where
special efforts are taken to improve the rising
female generation -which portion of the native
population haa been, in. past years, too much
neglected. In' whatever way this be done, it is
an expensive -mode of education, and can ; only
be performed to" a limited extent, according to
the ability of the '' community. Even in the
more civilized countries only a small proportion
of the female . population have the benefits of
boarding schools ; but there, perhaps, the need
is leas felt than here, where children are proue
to imbibe,- in their early. training, so much of
at.. r i : i -i . uv:. r ii..:. MMnti
To improve the mothers, should be the main
effort of all engaged in ' instructing the native
race, and this1 ban only be dene by educating the
girls. Without some improrementln them there
is little hope of any radical change in the native.
There are several -such-institutions now es
tablished at thesa islands, most of which are
partly sustained by Government funds. One
of the largest and most promising female schools
is that : at ; Waialua, on . this island, under the
charge of Kev. 0. II. Culick. It is supported
wholly by private means; and' on this accofitnt is.
deserving of special notice, as it has been doubted
by many whether 'such ' institufioris can be car
ried oh here without state aid. Wc learn from
the' principal some facts which will be'of inter
est. The school is taught by Mr: and Mrs.
Gulick, assis-ted by Miss Elizabeth Lyons. There
are now fifty scholars, which is as many as
there is "room for. Of these, fifteen are from
Hawaii, fifteen from. Maui, sixteen from Oahu.
and three from Kauai. Their ages .range from
11 to 15 years.
The school premises are located ori ther north
side of the AVaialua river, and comprise a lot of
twenty-four acres, running from . Uie road some
distance up the Kaloailoa Valley. The grounds
are level and covered with - maniania ' grass.
The premises are' enclosed oh! one side by a otonc'
wall 'and ori the" other are bounded by the rivcY'
on which the natives ; bring . their, produce in
canoes from the valley. The house is a large,
well built stone building, 52 by 35 feet in size.
It. has four-floors, with' a verandah around he-
. whole-. Under thisroofSill these fifty girls and
their teachers board and lodge, and the former
receive their Instructi6rt, the schooi ' room7 oc-
. a a 4V ... i-w w , s
cupying tne tinra uoor.i Jxo nner location lor
a female seminary can be found on. the islands,
! nor one- TUieriihss. promise of feuecfcssus so great J.
The instruction, thus far, has been wholly in
Hawaiian', and the pf moi pal 8ti dies -are tread
ing, spelling, arithmetics-geography, penman-rhipr.-eowtyeHtion,
music, and .iBible .-history.-;
An horir inthe morning is spent in gardening,5
the girls having under "cultivation about two
acres of. land. Besides this the girls do' al thif
own work, such as washinir. ironinjr and other
house work. Some of them are quite skilled j
in crocheting and other fancy work. Every j
- , . , .., i ,,,
afternoon the whole company, with their lady
. , . rf j i .i
teachers, either go to walk or indulge in the
aquatic sport of bathing and swimming, for
which the river affords a fine place. JIany of
them arc raid to rival the mermaids in the
celerity and grace with which they glide
through, over and under the water. Most of
them acquired the art of swimming before they
entered the school. This is a part of echool
instruction too often neglected. Every girl and
boy ought to be taught to swim.
Special pains have been taken to provide the
scholars with all the modern appliances for ex
ercise and out-door sports, such as swinging,
rope jumping, &c, in which they exhibit all
the zest and "kill of their fair-skinned cousins
in this and other climes. With them, however,
as with other juveniles, each sport has its day
and then goes out of fashion, and to the skill
of the teachers is left to provide new ones.
The girls are all taught to eiog, and special j
attention is given to this branch of instruction,'
which - require .early training to develope it j
properly. Moet of them ing any of the tunes 1
in the two native tune books, and also many of
the more modern hymns and songs composed bj
the poets of Hawaii.
It will be difficult to find any wbere a more
contented, happy company tLan these fifty girls as
sembled for their education under one roof, nor
one where the improvement is more marked. It
in - this respect that we look for change. It is
true 4 that these fifty pupils comprise only a
hundredth part of the five thousand girla now
growing up at these Islands, but ten such schools
if they ean be started, will place a large propor
tion " of them in a fair way to become useful,
intelligent and industrious wives and mothers.
And it is with the view of encourgaging the
establishment of other fenale boarding schools,
that we refer to this one. Hawaiian-females
are to become the wives of a large proportion
of the foreign settlers tf these islands, and the
;is mothers lofittie future industrial population.;
II6w important.' then.' that niore efforts should'
condition, that. they may; become ornaments to
society, as a few have become, who have received
euch judicious and faithful training. ;
NOTES OF THE WEEK..
,,. QT.Thk Cuxcebt, on Saturday evening, at Ka
waiahao Churcb. drew together a considerable
audience, though the Church, which will hold at
least 2,500. persons, -was far fcom full..SoBe . of
, the pieces were very well executed, which, ho w
. ever, cannot be said of all. Several of the female
. voices, . that sung on that occasion, are' certainly
very fine, and with proper culture, could be much
improved. .The pieces that drew out the most ap
plause were the dnetts; " Ah, could I teach the
Nightingale' and "
"Ever be Happy' the latter
. , i w - i.
lis, who possesses a very sweet
sung by Mrs. Douritua,
Tolce, ; , Home ,3'weet, Home,'' . rendered in Ha
waiian, possessed all the melody and music of its
original and shows that the Hawaiian language is
noti thysen seless jargon- it.has bwn called- by
'cTarpyrlcs.' As an exhibi'tfon bf Hawaiian "VnuMc,
jftrlghiatid aptf 'cQOftdc.Ced. solely .b'y HawaiLtns,
the concert was a success. It realized about $475,
wiiicB'is.sv'he thivoted to -the f and for purchasing
.a new organ for the church. To illustrate how
independent the Hawaiians are, aud also to dis
prove the Bishop of Oxford '8 charge of their abject
poverty we may state that, when Madame BLshop
wag here, she offered to give half the proceeds of
two concerts towards the orgau fund, provided she'
could have the "use of the church. The native
trustees firmly and unanimously declined the offer, .
staling that they did not wish foreign aid. and that
they should enjoy their instrument and its miifiic
more if raised solely by their own efforts.1'' '
- Relics ok thk Oldkn Time. In clearing out
some "antiquated cubbish from the' Government
printing office, sundry old papers have come to
light which the writers, no doubt, presumed were
long since destroyed. The secrets of the editorial
drawerwhich ought to be held sacred' as Holy
Writ all at once were opened to the light, and
among the 44 dead . copy," scattered arouiid ' . by
the winds, migut be seen the familiar autograph
of ( ex-Ministers, r Judges and' Privy Couucilors,
whose pens in thos early days helped to fill
the columns of Uie-Pdi.yteia,under the head
of editorial articles. The future historian of the
Islands would have given anything ; for , the . con
tents of the MSS. from the cellar of the Gov
ernment, printing office, which, were dumped ou
t nia KsnlonoH. o imi KKicli fr- ittoro UlirrV -- i,nl
the key of -many an unaccountable move on the
State checker-board. Among the old documents
we picked up the subscription list for J849. with
fhe autograihs of many of the old firms that have
now passed off the stage. There wag Mr. lVUy'a

directs his paper to be' left i4 at the house that Jack
built," Everett & Co.', Henry Macfarlane, Wm. h.

Williams & Co., Joel Terrill, Dr. Rooke, John
Robson, and a score or two of other names, more
or less prominent, mostly in their own hand writ
ing. Among the curiosities we find the following :
w Notick. I forbid any and all persons trusting any one on
my account without a written order from me, for 1 am so poor
I cannot get trusted myself." (
If novelty in advertising is the key of success,
as is said, then the person who inserted the above
must have got the worth of his hiouey. ' .
tf- A passenger by the Ajax, on her trip from
I this port to san Francisco, writes, that they had
fresh head wind all the way over, but a very pleas
; ant passage. So far from the vessel rolling badly,
as passengers on . her trip to this port stated, she
. was mnch more steady 'than sail "vessels generally
1 are. She made 240 miles a day with good coal.
The date fbr her departure' had been set ' for the'
10th,'and she may be expected by the middle of
. next week. We notice that the two new steamers
Montana and Idaho, both propellers of about 1.000
tons measurement, are laid on the' Oregon route,
Messrs. Aldrich.; Merrill & Co., being the agents in
San Francisco; i t strikes us .that these vessels,
with a freight capacity Of six r eight hundred
tons, would bo just what our trade calls for. Quite
a number of new and very fine sea steamers have
lately arrived at San Francisco from Eastern ports,
and others are on the way out. Where these ves
sets are to find employment does not appear. Just
new there is a pretty strong opposition between
.San Francisco and Portland. .
-Fiuxm .Valparaiso. By. the. arrival of. the British
; clipper ship Jheon, CaptNGuna,.we learn. thatthe,
port of ValpiraWo Xi stiH blockaded by. the. Span

ates J?cstfZtwfo"Jtnd ' Herenguella, Cfrvetles 'Jlnca

sear.cb ofithojChilean and Teruvian fleet. Valpa
raiso was the only port blockaded, and five British
warships were stationed thereto prevent the place
bcin- bombarded by the Spanish. The Falcon has
mada a passage from Valparaiso to this port, seldom
beaten.. Her passage from London to Callao was
the quickest ever made 8 days, and from Callao

To AKirrvE. The C. S. X. Co.?s Steamer Ajax
was to leave San Francisco on the 10th, and will be
due on the 20th or 21st, Tuesday or Wednesday
next. The clipper ships White SicaUoic and Frank
lin were to sail from San Francisco early in March,
for Hongkong, and should they touch here in pass
ing, will be due next week.
flziFr The mail which arrived on the loth, was a
very large one. consisting of 15C2 .letters and over
5,000 newspapers, the whole filling seven bags. This
was only a semi-monthly mail, and shows the in
crease of the labor required in this department.
! There was considerable grumbling outside of the
office, because the distribution of this large mail
took tip three or four hours. In San Francisco a
single steamer mail often requires an 'entire day to
j distribute it.
ninwris afloat that the circus schooner
Alice, which left here for Xew Zealand, was lost
after leaving Tahiti. "VTe cannot trace it to any
reliable source, and hopo it is incorrect.
Blrulakies. The store of C. F. Pfluger, en Fort
street, was broken open on the night of the 15th,
and goods to the amount of five hundred dollars
stolen therefrom. Morgan's butcher shop, corner
of Fort and Hotel streets, aud Wilhelm's bakery,
corner of Maunakea and Hotel street., were also
entered during the week. A second attempt was
made, a few nights since, to rob Geo. G. Howe's
office, on the Esplanade. The burglars were evi
dently after money, but found little or none.
An Ugi.t Reptile. Dr. Hoffman has in his office
a specimen of a monstrous horned worm, four or
five inches long, which differs from anything we
have before seen here. It was found in a China
man's tenement, and is said to resemble reptiles
common in China, whose sting is poisonous. They
are said to jump at their victim a distance of ten
or twelve inches, throwing their horns into it like
a dart. They are, doubtless, an accompaniment of
the recent Chinese coolie importation.
