NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Stacbixo ArTR.iT. On Wednestlay afternoon and
eveniug lat, a natlse feast was gircu in tbe localitj
known as KiUbale, neir Liberty Hall, at wbich
several fureimers were present. Among the number
were Malcora Thompson, a seaman belonging to the
Hawaiian whalinz bark .Mauna Loa ; Alexander
Ilcrnoud, Veterinary Surgeon ; Brigham Yonng and
Kalpb. At about balf-paet seven, after liquor had
circulated quite freely, Young and Ralph had an
altercation, and Thompson endeavored to separate
them, nnon which Reruond attacked Thompson. The
latter soon got the better of RemonJ, and the story
goes that Remond so expressed himself, upon which
Thompson desisted, and again attempted to separate
Young and Ralph. Remond again interfered and
struck Thompson three blows upon the chest and
abdomen. Thompson left the scene and walked up
Mauna Kea street, to the corner of Ilotel street, and
feeling an unusual sensation near his groin, made
an examination, with the aid of the street lamp, and
was surprised to find a wound which was bleeding
quite freely. A native policeman advised him to go
to tbe Station House, which he did, and was taken
from there to Dr. Buffum's, who examined the
wound. The cut is under an inch long, but is quite
deep ; another scratch was found upon his chest.
Remond was arrested and confined in the Station
House. On Thursday, Thompson was removed to
the Queen's Hospital, where he now lies in a critical
condition. Thompson is a satire of Campbelltown,
Scotland, but has resided in Arkansas since bis child
hood, and came to these islands in tbe American
bark k'utuuff, and started in her on her return to
l'uget Sound, but when outside changed Lis mind
and jumped overboard ; after swimming for some
hours he landed at Waikiki, where natives found
him and brought hiiu to town.
Teaipkraxce Lectcbk. We learn that the Rev.
Mr. Forbes, of the Kaumakapili Church, has con
sented to deliver a public lecture on the snbject of
Temperance, at an early day, (of which due notice
will be given,) at the request of members of the
Lodge of Good Templars. The Templars, we are
pleased to know, are steadily pursuing their good
work of moral reform, to which they have pledged a
life-long service. From their commencement in
April last, with about a half dozen of members, they
now number over seventy, with a prospect of still
increasing. Speaking of public lectures, why is it
that we are so seldom treated to one? We have
uuqucetioued talent in abundance in our midst, and
the wide range of history, literature, science and art
affords ample matcriaL Will not the Olympics"
take the subject in hand?
We do sot Know, sou do wk Cabe. We have
read tbe Gazette remarks npon the charge which we
made against Judge Widetuann that he deliberately
informed a party who bad tendered for material de
sired by the Interior Department, and whose tender
was rejected, that lie didn't work it right" and
will give the government the credit of telling the
truth iu a plain, straight-forward manner, the
whole defence of the Judge being contained in the
brief sentence. toe do not know, nor do tee care,
tehelher Mr. H'idemann made this remark or not.1'
It is our belief, and of many others with whom we
have conversed upon the conduct of the government,
that public affairs are managed with the same utter
disregard of right and justice.
. Among the passengers by the D. C. Murray,
from San Francisco, we were pleased to notice the
rKev. E. C. Bissell and wife. Mr. Rissell comes to
this city in response to a call from the Fort Street
Church, as stated supply, for a year. Mr. 1. was at
one time located at Westhampton, Massachusetts, and
again in San Francisco, where he became the Pastor
of the Green Street Church, and enjoys the reputa
tion of being a zealous, earnest christian minister.
We congratulate the Fort Street Church and congre
gation upon securing the services of this gentleman
and welcome him to his new charge.
Tua Tua Boat " Pele." This valuable aid to tLe
shipping visiting this port will be ready to resume
work next week. The Pete was laid up in the
latter part of April, nearly four months ago, for
repairs, during which time vessels requiring assist
ance in entering the harbor have been compelled to
resort to the old plan of tracking in by natives or
cattle, or both. Had this tug been the property of
private individuals it would have been ready for
service weeks sooner, and would in all probability
have been repaired as thoroughly at less cost. A
government officer has remarked, accompanying
she remark with a significant wring of the hand, that
f Government is a sponge." It would seem so, and,
wx might add, is being pretty thoroughly squeezed.
j Axotiieb. Exodcs. By the steamer Idaho, quite a
dumber of our citizens took passage for San Fran
iisco. His Honor the Chancellor, and family, Mar
shal W. C. Parke, Messrs. Daniel Foster, John IL
Paly, P. N. Makee, Dr. John S. McGrew and son,
and J. A. Uassinger being among the number. We
are informed that it is the intention of the Chancellor
to be here in time for the next January term of the
Supreme Court. Dr. McGrew intends to be absent
about sixty days. The Marshal will make a trip to
the Eastern States and return as soon as possible.

from six to nine hundred feet, in some places over an
embankment fifteen feet high. At Kabaualea tbe
school house and several dwelling houses were washed
away and the road badly damaged. On the Puna
coast damage was inflicted at several points, the
principal damage, however, was at Eabaoalea.

The Adverliter did not say so, and no fair, candid
man would so distort our remarks upon Our New

ling of the managers of the Gazette docs us no harm,
only tending to show the extent to which they will
go, to gratify the bitter personal animosity" they
feel towards a paper which the public deems worthy

a notice to mariners, issued from the Interior De
partment, concerning the new lights placed at this
port, and at Kawaihae. The light placed on the
west spit in the channel of this harbor, can be seen
from beyond Diamond Head. The lights will be of
most use to boats, or our smaller coasters that desire
to enter at nizht.

Ptbs at Waiaixa. A fire occurred at Waialua, at
noon of Sunday last, which destroyed one frame and
two grass houses. Loss estimated at four hundred
dollars. The cause of the fire was matches in the
hands of a child. The only moral to be drawn from
the above is, that children should not be allowed to
play with matches.

he can do so with advantage ; but we would like to

Ultjpalafxa, August 10th, 1869.
In the absence of a steamer, give me the good
schooner Mary Ellen and Crane aa master, and I
will guarantee a short and comfortable trip, if there
is wind enough to move a nautilus' craft, e left
Honolulu on Saturday 5 r. m. in the above well-
known clipper, the famous Pauahi skimming along
under our lee bow, with new and bright colors flying.
and looking as saucy as the yacht Dauntless when
she left New York lately for England, making the
run across the Atlantic in twelve days and some
hours a feat that eclipses some of the steamer pas
There, Crane, is a challenge to you ; don't back
out of it," said one of our passengers.
Our ekippcr pulled his old weather-beaten sou'
wester over his eyes and said, " If she can't beat
me, she isn't what they claim her to be ; " and the
beautiful Hilo packet shot ahead of us, as if she was
a thing of life, jolly as a rollicksome tar. . And so
she kept ahead till she came into the heavy channel
swells, that make us landsmen detest the water and
seek the quietest quarters the schooner can furnish.
Here the Pauahi hove-to. and double-reefed her
fore and mainsail, and took in her flying-jib.
None of that on board this craft, Capt Crane,"
said one of his passengers, and the Mary Ellen,
under a full press of canvass, passed her rival, and
kept on sail till she got into the Maui channel. A
stern chase, is a long chose," and the two vessels
kept widening the breach all the way to Lahaina.
where the Mary Ellen anchored at 6 p. m. on Sun
day, twenty-four hours passage ; and the Pauahi
arrived at 3 a. m. on Monday morning, thirty-four
hours from Honolulu.
Capt Crane has fairly won back that broom "
which some one ruthlessly snatched from him, and
until we see her as fairly beaten, we eball back the
Mary Ellen against the fastest craft that crosses
the four channels of Hawaii nei.
Changes very little from year to year. I have visited
it a dozen times or more, and the only changes ob
servable are that the houses, walls and fences, with
some few exceptions, look more dusty, forlorn and
antique than ever. Instead of white paint and

the pioneer mill.
The only one in the village, is apparently prospering
and a blessing to the place. One would never sus
pect that a thousand tons of sugar were annually
produced in this village, judging from observations
from sea or inland. But the yield is so heavy and
the growth so rapid (you must remember that it is
here where it grows so fast that you can hear the
leaves crackle, and see their growth), that from a
comparatively few acres a heavy yield is obtained.
Yet not so much cane is grown here as in former
years, when two mills gave such an incentive to the
natives. I made a hasty visit to the
LA IIAIK ALUK A SEJO.VAHT,
And found it is flourishing as in years agone. There
are now in attendance 110 students, and as manual
labor is a part of the system, the cane field, taro.J
potatoes, gardens, and terraced improvements above
the seminary and dwellings, show constant industry.
The cane field of twenty acres produced last year an
income of about eleven hundred dollars, which goes
towards the support of the institution. To all ap
pearances, it is prospering and a credit to the coun
try. MAKEE S PLANTATION.
A few hours sail brought us across the bay to
this most beautiful, most productive, and valuable
plantation in our group. Just now it is suffering
from drought, but it is mostly the lower fields that
need rain, while the upper fields are doing
welL There are a thousand acres under cultivation,
and such sugar as is now being turned out at the
mill the whitest I have ever seen made here. No
finer is produced anywhere -in the world. A stranger
can have no idea or tbe amount or labor ana capi
tal expended on a place like this. During ten years,
the proprietor has spent on his plantation over one
million of dollars, and made it the most valuable
and productive property in this group. It has aver
aged 80O tons a year for four years past, and if the
laborers could be had, it could yield 1200 tons as
easily. Over 15,000 trees have been set out and are
now growing here, which in a few years must change
the appearance of this neighborhood. To give an
idea of the magnitude of the outlay, I will simply
add that nearly forty miles of stone wall and wire
fence have been built on the place.
But I must not tire you with a long epistle, and
will hurry on around this great mountain called by
the ancients, the House of the Sun. You will next

Mr. Editor : In your communication dated July
12th, you speak of the Ramie plant, and ask why
not try cotton? Permit me to inform you and your
readers that cotton has had a fair trial in Kona. A
few years since a young man came here from the
cotton-growing States of America, where he was
born and bred. This young man settled down in
North Kona, and planted about four acres of land
with the Sea Island cotton seed, and he says it grew
the best and quickest of any cotton he ever saw,
and he also states that he never saw a heavier yield;
but it had one fault, that was, the bolls did not open
well, so that it made it very difficult to pick the
cotton. He thinks the cause was too much rain.
Now, to give you an idea of the weather in this part
of Kona: we have had about ten days of sunshine since
the 2Gth of April ; one time we had thvee days in
succession without rain, and much of the rain here
is accompanied with a cold, raw northwest wind, which
keeps the soil wet and cold, so that tender and deli
cate plants do not thrive so well as they would if
there was more sunshine.
Corn does well. One man informs me that he has
a few acres of corn planted, and it will average three
good ears to the stalk. . That rather beats Ohio.
Another man says he has a small field of corn, in
which the stalks average fourteen feet high, and it is
just begining to tasseL
We have land in Kona adapted to the growth of
almost anything even cotton will do better a little
nearer the sea than where the young man above
mentioned planted his field. Cotton has been grow
ing here for years, and there are now trees here
from twelve to fifteen feet high, and as much as
A?rtitwn jiii-Iim in fiiwiimfir(ri(((.
r Fruit is very abundant throughout Kona this
year, in most places me migm is not so Dau as it
has been for the last few years. The orange crop
has every prospect of being good this season ; and
'the coffee crop will be better in North Kona this
year than it has been for many years before, although
the blight has not left by any means ; it shifts from
place to place. One man showed me a patch the
other day from which he picked over one thousand
pounds of good coffee hist year, and this year the
blight took it and there will not be as much coffee in
the whole patch as would make a breakfast for your
humble servant ; the trees are completely covered
with blight, so that not only the berries but even the
leaves are dropping off.
Ramie I think will flourish in Kona, that is on a
small scale. Labor is too scarce here to plant ex
tensively. There are but few natives left m this
part of the island, and the few that are here are so
demoralized for want of proper religious instruction,
that they will steal their living rather than do a
day's work. A neighbor of mine told me a few days
ago, that the natives have not only stolen all his fowls
and his breadfruit, but have even broken to pieces a
number of his beehives, killed the bees, and stole the
honey. Religion handed out to natives on tbe end
of a long pole, does not appear to have much effect
upon their morals, which can be seen throughout
North and South Kona, by any one who has got half
an eye. Yours, &c. Bourgeois.

giving it such freedom, aud tbe control of its own

in other words, he will, at the proper time and in
the proper manner, make known to the bpanish

The latest news from Japan is of considerable)
interest The coast war continues to rage with in
creasing violence. The latest advises from tho
North are to the effect that Hakodate bad fallen,
and that Enmalo and his desperate baad were at
Kameda, at bay, surrounded by the Imperial forces.
Two Japanese war vessels, the Eagle and EmperorT
were destroyed by the Southerners, wno poared
shot and shell into Hakodate, the. guns of tbe fleet
being well served throughout the action. An eye
witness of tbe fight says tbe troops on both sides
marched up to the attack and took up their poi
tiou under a heavy fire with great.coolness?.
The Southern troops uatt enierea juais'mai ana

count of the affair :
Mats'mai was captured on Friday, the 28th ult,
the routed troops of Enomoto falling back in
great disorder on Hakodate. The bombardment
commenced at 4 a. m., and lasted until 7 p. v., when
the Mikado's flag was planted amidst the ruins of
the forts, and 2,000 additional troops were landed
by the Osava. The enemy left 100 killed on the
ground, and 70 wounded prisoners.

The Japan Gazette gives the following additional
particulars cf the attack on Hakodadi on the 9th of
June : The Imperialists commenced operations
against the place, and in the teeth of the most
deadly fire from a strongly posted foe, they ad
vanced with the steadiness of European troops and
succeeded in reaching and taking a fort that was
the advanced post of Tokagawa men. They entered
about 2 p. m., having fought every inch of tbe way,
a distance of nine miles as the crow flies, from the
post, they left at 5 o'clock in the morning. The
fort was commanded by Capt. Brunet and tho
Japanese Commander-in-Chief. The latter was
killed. After the fort was taken Capt Brnnet did
all he could to encourage the defenders ; but they
would not stand any longer, and made good their
retreat to the next fortified station. Both sides
suffered frightfully. An eye witness describes it
to us as butchery ; but it was genuine fighting,
with all the appliances of science in the shape of
big guns. Snider rifles, aad the tactics pursued.
The attacking party were materially aided by the
fleet, which sent shells right into tbe midst of the
enemy, and did more than anything else to demor
alize them. Capt Brnnet. when he saw. tho de
termined advance of the enemy, in spite of tho
havoc that was made in his ranks by the fire of the
Tokagawa men, and the manner in which the latter
lost heart on the bursting of a shell in tbe foit,
which killed the Japanese General, said that be
