BfTR Shops Te Police Court was tbe scene of
an extraordinary amoant of excitement on Saturday
last, in a large concourse of anxious faces assembled
to witness tbe result, of a prosecution instituted by
tbe Crown against a man named Kalaihiapo, charged
with Tending spirituous liquors," without a license,
in tbe rear of Maunakea street; in violation of Section
15, of tbe Act of 23d August, 1862- The 2d section
of that Act defines what are spirituous liquors,"
as contemplated by the Act, ix : " wines, ales, and
other liquors, containing alcoboL"'. Tbe prosecution
was conducted by. His Excellency, the Attorney
General, and the fact of tbe sale by the prisoner of
two bottles of beer to each of two natives, at 12
cents per bottle on the previous Tuesday, was clearly
prored. Two of the bottles were produced in Court,
and their contents were proved by an accurate analy
sis to contain 64 ter cent, of fciohoL It was also
I proved, by a competent adept, that the beer was

of the witnesses, who proved that at the time of the
purchase, he drank the contents of one of the bottles
in prisoner's house, and that it made him quite hazy
and stnpid No evidence was offered for the defense,
and tbe Court held the charge clearly established,
and imposed a fine of $500 under the statute, but
without imprisonment at hard labor, as authorized
by the Act. The Magistrate, in pronouncing the
judgment of the Court, availed himself of the oppor
tunity to lecture the prisoner, and through him the
rest of the fraternity, so largely assembled, on the
great evil resulting from the nefarious traffic in
which they were engaged, and referred to the fact of
the great increase of coses of drunkenness, as mani
fested by tbe records of his court for. the last few
months ; and also stated the determination of the
authorities to suppress the evil by every legitimate
means within their power. It was also stated on
the authority of the Deputy Marshal, that he was
fully prepared with proofs to convict several others
of the fraternity on similar charges, but which would
be suspended in the hope that the example now made
would operate as a warning to them, so as to induce
them to abandon' their evil courses -a hope which
appears by the sequel to hare been well founded,
inasmuch as a general demolition of their stock in
trade immediately followed, and on the next morning
some forty of these nourishing establishments had
ceased to exist we hope forever. We congratulate
the Police authorities on the successful result of their
labors to stamp out " what all the community have
long felt to be an intolerable nuisance, but which,
from its very nature, it was no easy task to accom
plish, from the great reluctance generally felt to
become " an informer," to which stigma tbe native
population are not insensible. Gazette.
The result is that a suddtn end has been brought
to the beer traffic, and the shops . have,. been
closed. There can be no doubt but that the indis
criminate selling of the so-called beer to the natives,
manufactured by some unprincipled foreigners and
sold to them by many of their own countrymen, has
been productive of a great deal of drunkenness and
attendant Tices. 1 It remains to be seen, however,
whether the authorities will be able to suppress the
surreptitious consumption of awa, that is pretty sure
to follow the closing of the beer shops. Those who
have the inclination to nse stimulants and the means
to pay for them, if they cannot get cheap beer, -will
find a way to get either awa or ale or whisky.
Further legislation is unnecessary. : Let the laws be
enforced strictly in all cases, otherwise they become
a dead letter, and consequently fall into contempt.
The Vernal Equinox. The sun enters the vernal
equinox on the 21st of March, when the days and

are found to be moving backward, or westward, at
the rate of fifty seconds of a degree in a year. These

Tbe British Almanac for 1870 contains some facts
of interest to Good Templars and others.. It says.
tb;it there is expended yearly in the United King
dom, for drink and tobacco, more than a hundred
millions sterling ($500,000,090.) The writer, Dr.
Smiles, grounds his calculations upon Government
returns. Scotland imbibes whiskey at tbe rate of
twelve gallons annually to each adult male. He
propose to divide the earth into " drink zone,"
viz.: 1, whiskey and brandy zone, including Scot
landj Ireland, and the North of Europe ; 2, beer
zone, England and Germany ; 3, wine zone, tbe
South of Europe ; 4, sherbet zone, Turkey and Per
sia; 5. water zone, the tropics. Tbe. English con
sumption of beer is about a hundred and twenty
gallons yearly to each adult male.
The decisions of the New York courts are not
often of a character to command approval, but
Judge Barnard, recently, delivered one which can
hardly fail to meet with general commendation, and
we trust have a good influence here, where the
marriage relation with native females is too loosely
regarded. Some yeare ago a young girl, living as
a domestic with a family named Brown, made the
acquaintance of a relative of .her employer, who
offered her marriage, but objected going through a
formal ceremony. A few months after their ac
quaintance began, be prevailed on her to leave tbe
house where she was employed, took her to New
York, gave her a wedding ring and presents, intra--duced
her as his wife, and lived with ber as her
husband. In course of. time a child was born to
them, but Brown falling in love with another
woman, abandoned the first girl, and repudiated ;
her claim of wifehood. He then married the second'
.woman, on which tbe first sued him for a divorce
and for alimony, claiming that she was his lawful
wife, and that his alleged marriage with the second
woman was bigamous, and the connection adulter
ous on his part. The court decided all the points
raised in favor of tbe girl, so that Mr. Brown is just
now in rather an awkward fix, and will probably
pull up in tbe State prison. Judge Barnard'B inter
pretation of the law in regard to the marriage con
tract is pot entirely new, though often overlooked .
by parties desirous of forming illicit connections.
It is well to have the class of fast young men who ,
seek to enjoy the pleasures of matrimonial connec
tion, without its responsibilities, understand that
when they call a woman their wife, and she accepts
tbe relation, tbe civil contract of marriage is thus
complete in tbe eye of the law. We are accustomed
to talk of ''tbe social evil" only in reference to tbe
class of unfortunate women : there is a still greater !
social evil existing, in tbe persons of tbe men about .

and maintain "tbe social evil," usually so called.!
The men who prey on society by betraying inexpe
rienced or necessitous girls, are the most mischiev
ous as well as the most odious feature of our social
system. They not only recruit tbe ranks of female
vice and disease, but populate the public relief
institutions and back slums of cities with unac
knowledged offspring. There is no future but mis-1
ery and guilt for the woman betrayed and aban
doned ; .there is no life but that of tbe streets, tbe
gutters, and tbe prisons, for tbe neglected cbildreu
of such temporary unions. Any interpretation of
tbe law that helps to discourage illicit relations
between tbe sexes, will be beneficial not only to
public morality, but to the material interests of so
ciety, and for this reason Judge Barnard's decision
will be generally commended."

Whaling at Hilo. One day last week a whale

seen frequently from the shore. It was not long be
fore one was made fast to, and then commenced
what Jack calls rare sport. The whale darted off
with the boat in tow, rushing from one point of land
ten or fifteen miles to another, wounded just enough
to make him desperate, but not mortally. The chase
continued through the night, and early next morn
ing the boat was seen still in tow rushing through
the water like a steam plow. Another boat from
shore went off, followed by one from the ship Cham-

for they have all died out In some localities, how
ever, on the other islands as at Makawao and Hana,
on Maui, particularly, the tree with the leaves of
which Adam clothed himself and Eve, still flourishes
and bears abundantly. .Why cannot some of the
residents of that favored region send some to this mar
ket, in a dried state of course, for then they make an
excellent lunch with a piece of bread. When fresh
from tbe tree, roasted on the coals, they are a fine
sanitary prelude to breakfast, or greatly help out the

Birth-day of thk Kino or Prussia. Last Tues
day. March 22d, was the 73rd anniversary of the
birth-day of His .Majesty, Wilhelm L, King of the
North German Confederacy. His Majesty is a well
preserved specimen of the last generation, having
participated in the campaigns of 1814-15, including
Waterloo, which wound up the fortunes of the first
Napoleon. The day was observed in Honolulu by
the display of flags from the battery on Punchbowl,
the Aastro-Hungarian frigate Donau, the foreign
consulates, and the shipping in port.

A New York paper has tbe following remarks,

He has more imagination than Cbapin, more pathos
than Spurgeon, more force than Hyacinthe. He is
as magnetic as was Somerfield, and as earnest as
was Wilberforce. Nature seems to have exhausted
upon bim all the charms of oratory. In felicity of
expression and fertility of illustration he is nnap
proacbed by any of his cotemporaries, and though,
like all impulsive and zealous men, he sometimes
makes grave mistakes, nevertheless, as a tribute to
his splendid gifts and incessant labors, we feel justi-'

In former years Nantucket whalemen frequented

almost every town and ' city throughout tbe world.
Their old home, however, still retains tbe same
fame it always enjoyed of being a remarkable
place for longevity Not long ago, a company of
old people assembled in Nantucket " Fifteen per
sons were present, two of whom were over ninety,
ten over eighty, and three over seventy-seven;
making a total of 1,259 years. Tbe oldest of the
company was born just after tbe battle of Bunker

The manufacture of corn brooms might be car
ried on here at the Islands with great success, and
the foreign importation entirely superseded. To
any purposing engaging in it, tbe following, which
j- notices a really valuable and very simple invention.
will possess interest : A Connecticut broom company
are now having manufactured for them a new arti
cle of corn broom, which it is claimed is tbe most
economical broom ever made. Tbe brooms are
made entirely distinct from the handle, to which
they are afterwards attached by means of a long
iron screw, and as they can be removed at pleasure
when one wears out, another can be bought and
attached to tbe same handle. The brooms are very
substantially made, but without tbe handle can be
afforded at less price than tbe old-fashioned article.
. Improvements in tbe manufacture of newspaper
continue to be made. Tbe Mobile Register is now
printed on paper made out ef the kra plant : It is
evident that with a material that can be grown in
almost any part of tbe world at a very small cost,
first class printing paper may be made cheap,. We
have often thought that wrapping and newspapers
might readily be made out of tbe bullrushes which
grow wild in every part of this group. -i' '

. Dr. C F. Hall, the Arctic explorer, is resolved
upon another expedition to the' Arctic regions, and
his plan, as stated by himself is to hare M two small
vessels of about 150 tons eaob one a steamer, sail
ing rigged the other a sailing vessel, each manned
by twelve men. I confidently believe I will be able
to reach the North Pole and return in three years ;
but should I find that it would require one or two
additional years to complete the object of the Voy
age and travel I will continue that time. 'The
whole civilized world is deeply interested injtbe
subject of geographical discovery to the North Pole,
and expeditions have roily from time to time been
trying to reach that point for over three centuries.
I truly bejieve that if Congress and Government
will aid me in the small expedition required (and
I am about to go to Washington to try for this aid)
the Stars and btripes of my country will soon have
the good fortune and honor of discovering and pos
sessing a new world."

The Tribune's special says in a letter from Nova

that the United btates uovernment has been sounded
on the subject of annexation.' and has expressed
itself favorable, and is ready to open negotiations
as soon as tbe people, by a fair vote, desire annex
ation and send delegates to Washington for that
purpose. A late number or the Yarmouth (Nova
fccotia) Herald says the people of the western coun
ties, with few exceptions, are strongly in favor of
annexation to the United fatates, and, from reports
that come from the east, tbey are willing and aeem
very much the same. And there can be no doubt
that an immense majority of the people desire an
nexation. Tbe editor proposes a meeting for tbe
purpose of sending a petition to tbe President and
Congress, and thinks it would be signed by seven
eighths of the population."
