Mb. Editor: The near approach of tbefairof
tbe " Ladies' Benevolent Society," and reports now
in circulation to the effect that tbe fund raised is
for the use and benefit of the Fort Street Churcb,
reports calculated to lessen tbe receipts, are suffi
cient excuse for my intrusion in yoar columns.
The report of the Treasurer of the Society, pub
lished in tbe Advertiser of September 25th. 1869.
shows that out or $7,443.51 raised, but Sl.9S6.8l
have uen used for the church. Whenever funds
are to be expended for the churcb. special efforts
are made for tbe required amount. Out of tbe re
ceipts for the current year I am told not one cent
has been for tbe use of tbe church. Tbe fund is
Collected and expended Tor the benefit of schools,
umonj; which may be. named the Makawao and
U'aialiia seminaries uud -Miss lSingh.in9 school.
During the sixteen years tbe Society has Imh-h in
existence, lb'- report shows that for ten years the
churr-h made no draft upon fund. The fund is
lor the education of Hawaiian bin n children, and
the question of sect or creed should uot be iiilruded-
Chronic. If there is any one thing to be re
gretted more than another, it is when & person
becomes chronic in minding bis neighbors business
and letting his own suffer. This seems to be the
case with our neighbor of the Gazette. This week
he suggests that we read our proofs more careful, he
having discovered an unimportant error in a pro
gramme printed at this office. Now, just for an
instance, we will point out a few errors so that the
public may judge. In the Gazette supplement, the
heading was spelled Hawiian," Supreme Court, A.
D. "1880;" and the text of the same article is
scarcely intelligible. Case of Wakeman vs. Stanley
at the bottom, " my judgment then is that the ixe-
fendant do have and recoer o the defendant the
earn of 40 and costs, and go without day." Again
in passenger list per Moses Taylor " Mrs. Sam
nela." If the Director of the Government Press
connot read bis own proof better than this, we would
suggest that he make no attempt to read his neigh
bors. JUST RECEIVED

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
JZS- The United States sloop of war Javiestovcn,

! and will probably touch here, leaving a maiL

day, for Auckland and Sydney, with a fair compli
ment of passengers and a full cargo, notwithstanding
that bag sugar was refused this trip.
2P By the schooner Prince. Captain Marchant,
learn that the weather had
' been very unfavorable, and that heavy showers of
rain nau visiteu mat coast.
jrfr After a suspension of some two or three
months in the photojrraph business, it is about to
be resumed again. Mr. M. Dickson advertises that
he is now ready to take pictures of any size.
f The Ladies' Fair, ior the benefit of tbe La
dies Denevolent Society, will lake place next Tnurs
day evening, Oct. 3d. at tbe Olympic Hall, in Nuti
anu Valley. As the procoeds of this fair is applied
to a charitable purpose, we hope to see a large at
tendance. 5SP" The regular monthly drill of Mechanic Engine
Company No. 2 will take place this afternoon, on
Queen street, foot of Nuuanu, on which occasion a
friendly trial of capacity for throwing the best stream
of water, will take place between that Company and
Hawaii No. 4.
Lost Overboard. Captain Dexter, of the Emily
Morgan, we learn, lost his son overboard and was
drowned. The accident occurred during a gale of
wind, the boy falling from the taffrail, and could not
Mcsic. Mr. Maynard. recently from St. Vincent's
Collece, Los Angeles, has taken up his residence
in Honolulu, and will devote his time to teaching
music. This gentleman comes highly recommended
as a musical teacher, and no doubt his abilities as
such will be appreciated.
EjF" Last Friday evening, as the Moses Taylor
was coming into the dock, we heard an old "salt"
remark, that considering the darkness of the night,
and other circumstances, Captain Mclutyre deserved
credit for the skillful manner in which he brought
that vessel to the dock.
Something New. This evening, at the barber
shop on the corner, Mr. Neill will exhibit a new in
vention for the production of a portable gas-light.
It seems to possess the requisite brilliancy, and is
said to be very cheap, and we have no doubt that
it cau be made to combine all the conveniences of
On Thursday forenoon Honolulu was vis
ited by one of the heaviest showers we have Lad
for sometime past The streets were flooded for a
time, and the streams down the valley were filled
to overflowing. Yesterday again we had quite a
heavy shower, accompanied by thunder. We have
beard of no damage beinp: done.
JSP To show the benefit that is derived from pass
ing ships that touch here for fresh provisions on their
way across this ocean, we publish the exports of the
coolie ship Macao, which recently touched here.
This vessel paid out $1,700 for beef and vegetables,
wholly of island production, which amount was mostly
distributed among the natives.
A Sell. After the arrival of the news on Thurs
day, two friends meeting on the street, says one,
" Well, so Paris has fallen, eh t " " You don't say
so," was the excited reply ; " how did it come about!
much slaughter?" "Oh, no, nobody was hurt,
only some dishes broken." " How the deuce was
that?" "Why you see the rain this forenoon
soaked through the roof of a Chinese restiurant,
and a lot of plaster of Paris fell from the ceiling."
Disgust and speedy exit of the sold individuaL
Steam Cultcre op Sugar. The steam culture of
sugar, says the New Orleans Picayune, seem to be
a success, and the experiment on the Magnolia
Plantation proves that the deep Bteam plowing has
been beneficial, as the cane has a dark green color
and thrifty look, though other plantations were suf
fering from drought. The experimenter is very
sanguine that the crop can be made, with steam
cultivation, with, one-third less mules, one-third
more yield per acre, than under the old system. Up
to date, the appearances are decidedly in favor of
abundant crops. Sac. Weekly Union.
Stabbing Affkay. Yesterday afternoon, when
the bark Sterling was oiiout to go to sea, one of tbe
sailors, named T. Harris, a half breed Indian, who
. . . a . a
had been on snore, was taken on Doara somewuat.
under the influence of liquor. After getting on
board, he was ordered to do something, upou which
hard words ensued, followed by a blow from the
second mate. James Shields. The Indian being in
a state of excitement, drew his knife, and stabbed
the mate in the left breast, inllicting. it is believed,
a fatal wound. Dr. McGrew was called and dressed
the wound, finding that the point of the knife had
cut the lung. The seaman was locked up. and will
hiivi un BTami iaiinn in th Police Court this morn
ing. The vessel will be detained a day or two in
consequence. ; bince tne aoove was iu .ypv we
learn that the second mate, Jas. Shield, has died.
Catholic Feast. A large feast of the Roman
Catholics of this town and vicinity was appointed for
Thursday last, but owing to the heavy rain of that
day, it did not come off till the day following.
Although some showers fell during the forenoon, yet
when we passed the church premises between 9 and
10 o'clock, the sun was out bright, and we observed
a large concourse of natives assembled under long
booths of rushes, going into the Abundant solids with
much apparent gusto. There was music and sing
ing, and everything looked lively and cheerfuL We
intended to walk in at a later . hour of the day, but
duties prevented us. We understand it was intended
as a feast of welcome for the return of his Lordship
Bishop Maigret. We cordially unite in welcoming
back to Hawaii, so estimable a prelate, as the Roman
Catholic Bishop of this place, after his long absence.
Amusements. AtBuflum's Hall, daring the past
week, the Carandini family have been entertaining
full houses. This company of singers excels any
thing that has visited Honolulu, both in artistic style
and execution, and only need to be heard to be ap
preciated. The ladies are accomplished, and possess
cultivated and pleasing voices, while Miss lioeina
et&nda at the head of the profession as a pianist.
Mr. Small, as a delineator of Irish character and
song, brings forth a full share of applause. The
operatic and ballad selections are the most popular
of the day, and are all rendered with such skill as to
leave no room for criticism. All who wish to enjoy a
pleasant entertainment, and can appreciate good
music, we advise attend.
At the Theatre, the Japanese troupe of jugglers
have been performing to full houses.
On Monday evening next, Rogers California
Minstrel Troupe, assisted by Mr. Northcott, will
make. their appearance before a Honolulu audience,
at the Theatre. It will be remembered that this is a
part of the troupe who performed here some nine
months since, while on their way to China, in the
clipper ship Charger. See programme in another
The Ladies Sakitabt Fair. This fair took place
last Saturday evening, at the Olympic Hall, as pre
viously announced, and was attended by a large
number of people. The exertions of the ladies to
make the arrangements complete, was entirely suc
cessful. The room was tastefully decorated for the
occasion, and the variety of both useful and orna
mental articles on exhibition gave credit to the
German ladies. Everything in the way of refresh
ment that could be wished for was provided. The
performance on the piano by Dr. Hoffmann and Mr.
E. Hoflschlaeger was a rare treat for those who can
appreciate fine music Several choruses were sung
by a number of gentlemen, which manifested the
earnest Bpirit of the Germans in the war. " Germa
nia," a beautiful oil painting, by Mr. E. nofT
achlaeger, was highly commendable to that gentle
man as an artist. At 84 o'clock, Mr. Wilder com
menced to auction off the remaining articles, which
was continued by Mr. Bartow, until all bad been
disposed of. At about 11 o'clock, a large number
having retired, oue hour was devoted to waltzing,
which was enjoyed by a number who are fond of that
amusement We learn that something over $2,000
was realized, which is gratifying to all those who
participated. It is wholly for a charitable purpose,
and will be distributed alike to alleviate the suffer
ings of the sick and wounded of all those under th
care of the German sanitary regulations.
Tahiti. By the arrival of the American schooner
Eur e nia, from Tahiti, we gather a few items of
news. It is mostly unimportant, as everything there
is said to be very dull few vessels ever visiting the
port We inquired, however, on the morning after
her arrival, of a person aboard, how much later news
the community, including the Franco portion, had of
the war raging in Europe, and were surprised to
learn that at the date of leaving, about 21 days ago,
it was only up to the 81st of July last, only two
weeks after the declaration of hostilities. We also
asked what tbe impression was among the French
officials iu regard to results, &c, and were answered
that they were uuder the blissful idea that long bo
fore this the Germans were chawed up and nothing
left. Nap, like the first of that name, being in Berlin
' unter den linden," issuing decrees as did " mon
oncle." We remiuded ourselves of the taw, " where
ignorance is blUs, etc." The inhabitants of Paris
were cajoled fot a couple of days into a similar state
of things ; but Franco Tahitians will probably much
longer enjoy the delusive enchantment, than their
compatriots of Paris. Reflecting upon this, we were
carried back to those halcyon days when we, of
Hawaii nci, enjoyed the privilege of waiting six
months for our news from the great outside world ;
but, as they say in the modern classics, nous avont
change tout cela. And strange to say, that we heard
an old resident, and a Teuton at that, some months
ago (of course before war broke out,) say, he never
had been so contented and happy as when he waited
for news via the Horn ; remarking that this frequent
excitement at the arrival of fresh news by steamers
was too great a strain upon his nervous system.
Lucky we are not all alike. We learned also, that
beef was worth 10 cents per pound on the hoof.
What a paradise for our graziers, having large flocks,
if they could only transport a few hundreds, obtain
land on the neighboring Island of Morea, which is
better adapted for cattle than Tahiti, let them run
for a while, and sell to the hungry Gauls, and to the
natives, if they have acquired the taste for beef. It
does seem a pity that so luxuriant a group as the
Society Islands could not be made more of.
Fiji. By the arrival of the English bark Jlnna,
we have a few items from this extensive group of
islands in the southern Pacific. Since the exploring
expedition under Commodore Wilkes, and in the his
tory of which, much space is bestowed upon Fiji, we
own that they have always been to us a subject of a
great deal of interest The large number of islands,
i the inexhaustible fertility of their soil, and the here
tofore, if not now, peculiar savage character of the
people, contributed to this interest, in connection
with the little known of them, previous to Wilkes
voyage. About two years since a series of articles,
graphically describing them, by a gentleman who
had resided there some time, now an old resident at
these islands, was matter of very entertaining read
ing for several weeks to the Honolulu public. We
now learn that a considerable advancement has 6ince
been made at Fiji. Foreigners, mostly English and
Americans, have largely increased, and Levuka, the
principal place of foreign residence, is a town nearly
as large as Honolulu, with numerous shops, hotels,
bowling alleys, saloons, &c, very much such a
place, we fancy, as Honolulu was thirty years ago.
The trade is principally with Auckland and Sydney,
and the exchange from Fiji is cocoanut oil, cotton,
(of an excellent quality), biche le mcr, and, perhaps,
other productions. The Wesleyan missionaries have
done good work there, and the present King, Tha
kombau, is also a convert to the Christian faith.
The natives are so christianized as to make it safe to
visit the various islands of the Archipelago, with the
exception of one mountain district, where a mission
ary was lately killed. The King lives aTRewa, fifteen
miles distant from Levuka, and permits foreigners to
make their own regulations for their solf government,
but not to interfere with natives. There is an open
ing for the genus lawyer that specimen of zoology
not being yet introduced, and as His Majesty is de-
' Birous of having a code of laws framed for his king-
dom where is the " Ricord " that is t, fetch up
there. Is there none among us that we might spare,
to enlighten and litigate His Fijian Majesty's sub
jects T Differences among foreigners are often re
ferred to the American and English Consuls, whose
influence is salutary. The former has acquired an
island all to himself, appropriated to cotton culture.
In fact, foreigners are acquiring lands, adapted to
all different agricultural purposes very extensively.
The sugar cane is unrivalled. As the Anna is to re
turn there, what a chance to go and make your

The Coolie Habeas Corpus Case.- Late on Sat
urday afternoon, this writ was taken out, at the
instance of a resident celestial, for the benefit of a
non-resident celestial, on board the San Salvador
Bhip Macao. The writ was upon the master of the
' ship, and was not served till Sunday forenoon. Now,
as everybody knows, the writ of habeas corpus is a
mighty big writ, and is not to be withheld, when
demanded in a proper cause, and, at the same time,
ought not to issue under every frivolous pretense. It
is a summary remedy for illegal restraint of every
kind, whether by a Magistrate's order, by an exe
cutive officer, or by a party, not connected with the
law at all. In the present instance, it was to bring
up the body of one of the coolies on board of the
above named vesscL We could not learn from the
petition, as read in Court, at the hearing on Monday
forenoon, what the specific reasons assigned were.
But we had been informed that tbe writ was only
granted, after numerous affidavits were filed. It
was a fizzle, however, for it turned out they had got
tbe wrong pig by the ear, if, in reality, there ever
was any pig at all ; and, on the discovery of the
same, the petition was dismissed. So that the moun
tain in labor brought forth a mm, and the philan
thropic parties interested adjudged to py the cost
The case appeared to excite interest, as we noticed
several dignitaries of the land in Court The party
who amused us most, however, was the alleged
injured party himself, the innocent fulcrum of the
whole modus operandi. There he sat, understand
ing a heap cf what was being said and done in bis
behalf, and wondering, no doubt, why he of all his
companions should be selected for such, august
presence probably thinking, if he thought any
thing, that he had never been before aware of the
extent of his grievances, like the client who never
knew how much he had suflered till he heard Lis
lawyer make his plea before the jury. No one,
certainly, objects to a coolie Chinaman enjoying the
high prerogative writ, as much as any other barba
rian, by whom it may be invoked in a proper cause.
But we do not believe in groundlessly annoying these
passing ships who touch here to refresh their cargoes
and spend money amongst us, which they cannot
help doing when they enter our port, conveniently
situated, as it is, on their long voyage across this
ocean, for it may be that in view of the premises
they might prefer to go somewhat out of their way
to avoid us and our philanthropists, and thus ex
pending their money elsewhere. We cannot, if we
would, break up the nefarious trade by such isolated
cases. Th&t the trade is often subject to abuses, no
one doubts, and it would be remarkable if it were
not No such accusation can be laid to the Hawaiian
system. If it be, that coolies are brought within
our jurisdiction, who are abused on board, it strikes
us the remedy is somewhat different from that of the
writ of habeas corpus. Wilberforoe did not break
up the slave trade by writs of habeas corpus, but by
bold and persevering denunciations of the entire
hydra in the imperial parliament And when we
shall have abandoned our share in the coolie trade,
and can exert the same influence with the nations
that he did, perhaps our benevolent efforts may be
crowned with like success.
