NOTES OF THE WEEK. j
5? The third of the series of readings and lec- j
tures, under the auspices of the Young Men's Chris- j
tiau Association, took place last evening at Buffum
IlalL It consisted of readings, interspersed with
appropriate songs. Mr. II. A. P. Carter rend Dr.
Holmes' September Gale, a humorous piece in which
the doctor bewails the loss of his favorite old
breeches. Mr. S. B. Dole followed with Irving's
Rip Van Winkle, which was rather lengthy and
tedious. Decidedly the best piece of the evening, or
rather that which pleased the audience most, was
oue of the Ingoldsby Legends, read by Mr. M'Cully,
in which Lady Jane narrates her matrimonial expe
riences. A second piece from Mr. Carter, decidedly
too long, aud Hood's Bridge of Sighs, beautifully
read by Rev. Mr. Bissell, closed the exercises of the
evening. On Friday evening next. Rev. Mr. Snow
den will lecture on 44 The Night-side of Life."
John Cuisaman Api-eals to tue Press. A sig
nificant sign that the children of 44 the Flowery
Kingdom " are beginning to appreciate the fact that
the press is a power in the land, may be found in the
following dialogue, which weeurred the other day
between our reporter and the keeper of a Chinese
Chinaman 44 How do. You takee cigar? I likee
speakee you. You nusypapah man, eh ? lou inakee
Reporter" Oh, yes."
Chinaman 44 Well, I wanty you make a talky for
one Aleutian man ; ne cneatee rne too mucn. ne
come here, board my house, takee belly good room,
he got belly good wife, too muchee silk clothes ; he got
plenty old chain, too muchee big gold watch, belly
new clothes, two big tlunky, belly heafy ; I think he
got plenty money. He stop tlee weeky, he no pay
one dollar, then eo Califoroy in steam Didaho. He
no speakee me nothing, ne owe me twenty-sixee
dollar. Ugh ! Melikan man fuin Californy no good ;
too much cheatee ! "
Our reporter promised to put it in the paper, and
so here it is, but Jolin failed to give the name of hia
Febrcaby 22d. Last Tuesday was the one hun
dred and forty-eighth anniversary of the Birth-day of
great Washington, of whom it might fittingly be said,
as Ben Johnson said of Shakspeare, " He waa not
for a day, but for all time," Byron whose poems
are just now re-read with particular interest from
the fact of his own story haviDg been resurrected,
was an ardent admirer of Washington. In one of
bis poems, after vividly describing those leaders who
fight for glory and personal aggrandizement alone,
he says :
44 And such are they ami such they will be foutd :
Not so Leonidas and Washington,
Whose every battle-field is lioly ground,
W bich breathes ol nations saved, not worlds undone.'
The day was unobserved by any public demonstration
in Honolulu, beyond the display of flags on the con
sular buildings and the shipping in port,
EJ?- We invite the attention of our readers,
particularly those who did not hear it, to the address
of His Ex. S. H. Phillips, which will be found entire
on our fourth page. No one can peruse it without
gathering much information ; though be will fail to
appreciate the graceful and easy manner in which it
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
AVobld's Temperance Meetings The committee
of the Congressional Temperance Society, at the last
session of Congress, proposed to all Temperance or
ganizations, wherever located throughout the world,
that each one should hold a meeting on the evening
of the 22d of February, the anniversary of the birth
day of Vasiiini:to.. The G. L. I. O. G. T. of Cali
fornia, ofiicially informed the Lodges of Good Tem
plars of this city of the fact, and accordingly, a Tem
perance Meeting was held in the Bethel on Tuesday
evening hist, which, although the notice given was
extremely short and the weather unpleasant, was at
tended by about one hundred persons. The speakers
were the Rev. Messrs. Bissell, Snowden, Snow, Stur
ges, and Emerson, who all spoke enthusiastically
and ably for the cause of temperance, the speeches,
especially that of the first named gentlemen, being
interspersed with interesting anecdotes and narra
tives. Could the spirit of the Father of his country
have looked down upon earth, we imagine it could
have seen no more pleasing spectacle than the cele
bration of bis birthday in so many wiJely separated
localities by the advocates of Temperance,
Bat WnALixc. Some three weeks since the Anne
SAiled for Kalepolepo Bay. having been chartered by
Captain Roys to engage in whaling. Try works have
been erected at Oloalu, some four or five miles be
yond Lahaina, where the whales are cut up and the
oil tried out. Owing to the stormy weather, nothing
had been done up to the early part of last week ex
cepting to complete all the arrangements. During the
latter part of last week, however, the weather mod
erated so as to allow the schooner to commence work,
and we hear that she has succeeded in taking two
whales. She is fitted with Captain Roys' new whal
ing guns, manufactured by Mr. Hopper of this city,
and we learn that the two whales taken were both
killed almost instantly after being struck, and will
turn out fifty or sixty barrels. Captain R. claims
that no whale that allows him to get within one hun
dred feet of it with his gun, can escape alive, as the
weapon is carried witli extraordinary accuracy, and
its striking or entering the whale causes instant death
by explosion. We certainly wish him every success,
and hope he will return to port in a few weeks with
a thousand barrels as the reward of his enterprise.
Legal Advertisements. The following appear in
the last issue of the government Gazette : Eatate of
James Currie, of Ilonolulu, deceased application of
W. C. Parke, administrator, for fiual settlement of
accounts. Hearing set for Monday, 4th proximo.

Ann Newmann, administrators, for final settlement
of accounts. Set for Wednesday, 16th proximo, at

Judge. Estate of Thomas H. Marshall, of Lihue,
Kauai, deceased application of J). K. Fyfe and John
Stupplebcen, administrators, for settlement of ac
counts. Hearing set for Thursday, 17th proximo, at
Kawiliwili, Kauai, before Hon. J). McBryde, Circuit
i The sale of rare old English books, held by
Mr. Bartow on Saturday evening last, drew out a
large attendance, and some few of the works sold
very well ; but there was evidently not the interest
shown as at the previous sale, a year ago. It doesn't
speak well for the moral condition of any place when
all the volumes of sermons and theology have to be
knocked down to the auctioneer or others, at 12
j cents a volume, and such novels as the Pirate bring
j $2.75. The author of " Social Life " would have
j " chuckled in his sleeves " when he saw the Ency
! clopedia Britannia knocked down at 63 cents a
j volume. Well, the fact is just here, that there can
: be a glut of books in the market as well as of denims
j or hessiaus, and it has been pretty clearly demon-
I et rated that Ilonolulu is overstocked with " rare old
j hoke" at least-
fcT Advices from New Zealand, by way of London,
I give the details of the trial of the Maori chieftains at
I Wellington, New Zealand, for treason against the
British Government. After a patient trial the trai-
tors, Hotariki-Te-Oikan, Rewi-Tainmanni-Toti-Toti,
Matene-Te-Karo, and several others, were found guil-
ty, when Judge Johnson assumed the black cap, on
the 2d of October, and pronounced sentence that the
prisoners should be drawn on a hurdle to the place of
execution, aud there 44 hanged by the neck until you
are dead ; that your heads be severed from your
bodies drawn and quartered." The prisoners re
ceived the sentence without evincing the slightest
emotion, but at night two of them committed suicide
by hanging themselves with strips of worsted torn
from the rugs in their cells.
Brass Castings. Mr. Young, at the Honolulu
Iron Works, is turning out some heavy castings in
brass for the frigate Donau. One casting, on
J Thursday, was an inch plate to go alongside the keel.
extending beyond the propeller to the rudder post. It
is 20 feet in length, weighs 1,800 pounds, and is by
far the largest brass casting ever undertaken here.
There are two of these plates, one for each side of the
keel. Besides these, Mr. Young has orders for a
considerable amount of other brass work. It is sat
isfactory to know that we have in Honolulu the men
and the facilities for such work, equal to any to be
Poetry bun Mad. The two minors of the Press
Punch Bowl and Bennett's Own have of late been
exercising their ingenuity by hurling mimic thunder
bolts of rhyme at each other we can't call it poetry.
The Pegasus of the former, like very young steeds in
general, is rather balky, and 44 breaks up " badly ;
while that of the latter, though it travels smoothly
enough, appears to delight in running through all
the dirt and mire it can find. One is irresistibly re
minded of Coleridge's fore ible epigram :
44 Swans sing before they die 'twere no bad thing
Did certain persons die before they sing."
A Healiso Medium. We do not know that the
Hawaiians ever heard of Home, or Andrew Jackson
Davis, or indeed anything about modern spiritualism,
which has so many believers in Europe and America,
but we were informed recently that there is in Hono
lulu a native who professes to cure certain diseases
by simply laying on of hands, with prayer. We are
told by natives of intelligence that they really believe
in his viana (power), but we have not yet seen this
prodigy. When we do, we will 44 report progress."
Nkw Hall fob the Good Templabs. We learn
that Ultima Thule Lodge have leased the old Maine
Hotel premises, on King street, and have fitted up
the upper portion as a hall for their meetings. The
decorations and furniture are said to be very neat.
There would seem to be a kind of poetical justice in
this, that where formerly for so many years men as
sembled to carouse and drink whiskey there now will
meet a band of sworn enemies to all that can intoxi
The Circd- Redittvus. Like almost everybody
else's children, those of Mr. Lee, the circus man,
have been afflicted with the prevailing cold and
cough. But we see by his advertisement in another
column that they have weathered the storm, and
promise to give the circus-going publio another
taste of their qualities at an early day. See adver
tisement. A Change. The change of the moon took place on
Wednesday last, and with it came a change in the
weather, as predicted by old salts. The cold bluster
ing winds have had their 44 blow out," and for the
last two days the ordinary pleasant weather has pre
vailed once more. A good deal of rain has fallen in
this vicinity the past fortnight, and vegetation is
The clipper S. G. Read is supposed to be

By the Ilawaiian bark Catalinn we have received

which we are indebted to Mr. Arnold, owner of the

From the file we glean the following :
DePAKTUBK OK THE NEW MlNISTF.B TO CllINA.
Ainoug the passengers yesterday by the Pacific
Steamship Company's steamer America was His

Representative Brooks has prepared a statement
embracing the views of the Militarv Committee and
Ways and Means, relative to the tariff. Instead of
collecting revenue on about 4,000 articles as pro
posed bv the bill reported to-day, it is claimed that
one hundred and titty millions can be better raised
on 25 mentioned articles. It is said that the nreseat
revenue from the tar ill is one hundred and eighty
Mr. Schenck said the members of the Committee
of Ways and Means had endeavored to keep in
mind three things revenue, protection and con
sumption. Mr. Brooks also spoke in criticism of the bill,
and he particularly condemned that portion in re
lation to iron, steel, carpetings, and many other
articles on which the duties have been increased.
He proceeded to enumerate the items of advances
on iron and steel, and said the reductions in the
bill bad been ingeniously made upon the mere
revenue of articles, such as tea, coffee, sugar,
brandy, spices and liquors, thus reducing the reve
nue in order to have an excuse for raising the duty
on iron, 6teel. carpeting, even on old type ; but
what had not been done in the bill was far more
censurable than what was done ; the objectionable
duties remained on coal, salt, lead, lumber and
hides, and he went on to show that Mr. Schenck
did not carry out his ideas of specific duties, and
gave details showing that measuring, weighing and
Bpecific duties were mingled together in the bill.
Mr. Allison, member of tbe Committee of Ways
and Means, suggested that the consideration of the
bill be postponed at least two weeks. The bill
affected every material interest of the country, so
far as they could be affected by a tariff for revenue
or protection. It changed tbe value of property in
this country not less than fifty millions, therefore it
was important that the representatives of the people
should have time and opportunity to examine the
bill before tho discussion commenced. In his
judgment the bill was constructed in the interest of
protection, rather than of revenue in the interest
of that class of people who would be able to make
large profits on manufactures, and not in the inter
est of that class of people who would be able to
make large profits on manufactures, and not in the
interest of the consumers. He proceeded to instance
some of the principal changes made by the bill,
especially in iron and sugar.
A proposition is now tinder consideration by the
House Committee on railroads and canals in Con

a ship canal around tbe falls ot Niagara. Under
tbe law of the State of New York tolls cannot be
abolished as long as there is any indebtedness on
the canal. The subject has been submitted to
prominent members of the New York Legislature
asking if they will assent to such an arrangement if
Congress should pass a measure to carry out those
Mr. Howe, on leave, addressed tbe Senate in
support cf Lis bill to more effectually preserve
neutral relations. Tbe bill repeals certain sections
of the present law, which forbids hiring American
citizens to enlist in foreign armies, or going abroad
for that purpose, and prohibit American nhip
builders being concerned in building or fitting out
vessels designed to cruise against foreign powers
with whom we are at peace.
