JSf" We direct the notice of our readers to the
" Reminiscences of San Francisco," the first number
of which appeared on our fourth page last week. We
think they will be found interesting as presenting
pictures of life and doings, when that country might
be said to be almost a terra incognita to the rest of
the world. 1 '
The Minstrels. The minstrel circle, at the thea
tre, by Roger's troupe, are receiving a fair share of
well deserved applause. Miss Nellie liosmer has be
come a perfect favorite iu her comicalities, and brings
down the house every time. This evening the takes
a benefit, on which occasion we hope to see a crowded
house. An attractive programme is published in
another column. ,
A Monster Share. Captain Hatfield, recently
from Jarves Island, reports that an enormous shark
got into the breakers and was thrown on the beach.
It was twenty-six feet in length, a flat head, four
feet across between the eyes, thirty-five finches in
width, and eight feet between the tips of its flukes.
It had no teeth, strange to say. It was of a variety
known as the Leopard shark, from its spotted skin.
A Sad Accident. Last Tuesday, as Mr. Bright-
man,' an officer in a ship lying in the harbor, was
engaged with the crew in rigging out the jib-boom,
the rope slipped, and the spar ran in through the
cap with great force, the heel of it jamming the
officer's leg against the knight-heads and smashing
the bone fearfully. The unfortunate man was re
moved to the American Hospital for treatment and
probably amputation will take place. ' L"
' By Authority. By a notice from the Foreign
Office, in Wednesday's Gazette, we learn that official
notice has been received here of the proclamation of
a Republican Government in France, and that Mons.
Theodore Ballieu, who has hitherto represented the
Imperial Government at this Court, as Commissioner
and Consul, has been continued in the same position
by the new Government. Hereby the important Tact
is made known that Hawaii recognizes the new Re
public. Won't Napoleon feel bad when he hears it !
Whalers. Our wharves and town streets still
present a busy spectacle. Many of the ships we un
derstand, are. leaving for home. We could hardly
wish them better success as to the average quantity
of oil taken, but only better prices. But as things
change rapidly in the present age, perhaps when the
cargoes reach New Bedford there may have been a
change for the better. We hope such, may be the
case, as no one deserves better the fruit of bis earn
ings than the enterprising Arctic whaleman.' ;.
The Departure. The Moset Taylor inexorably
deprived us of those sweet voices, that bad gladdened.
(if not in a certain sense pained) our hearts for the
last few weeks. We saw some manly eyes, unused
to weep, glisten with the suppressed tear, as the
noble steamer bore from our gaze the enchantresses
that have bound us as if by some magic spelL As
time is the great assuager of all griefs, we suppose
that in time the anguish of parting will subside into
a fond remembrance, or a pleasing melancholy. It is
to be hoped nothing more serious is the result

Terrible Famine and Distress in Mantciiuria.
A shipmaster who wiutered at Tumen River, the
boundary between Russia and Corea, reports that a
number of Coreans had come over into Russian Ter
ritory, unable to find the means of subsistence, there
having been a famine in that country. The Russians
divided their rations with the Coreans as far as pos
sible, but hundreds of the natives perished from
starvation and cold. Upwards of 500 dead bodies of
men, women and children were seen in a ride of 14
miles lying in the bdow.
The Good Templars Ball. Last Monday evening
the members of Ultima Thula Lodge gave a subscrip
tion ball at the Olympic Hall, in Nuuanu valley.
Notwithstanding the rainy weather a large party of
ladies and gentlemen attended. The aCair was a de
cided success so far as enjoyment went, in every par
ticular. The arrangements had been well completed, j
the hall was handsomely decorated with flags and
evergreens, which made it very pleasant A good
refreshment table was set for the occasion. We hope
to see these social parties repeated often. .
Theatrical. Miss Rose Evans, the juvenile tra
gedienne, who arrived by the Melbourne steamer.
is nightly, gaining admirers at the theatre. Last
Monday and Wednesday evenings this lady, ably as
sisted by Mr. Claremont, performed to select and ap
preciative audiences., In the character Mary Stuart,
Queen of Scots, Miss Evans is ta picture of womanly
beauty, portraying the character vVith a genuine ef
fectiveness, both graceful and touching. Her enun
ciation ia particularly clear and distinct, and exhibits
a wonderful power of expression. In fact she bids
fair try become a leading star in her profession. Her
conception of character is as good in comedy as tra
gedy.' - - We would invite the publid to go and see Miss
Evans on Monday evening, and judge of her merits
as an actress.
A Good Idea Sheriff Dayton and Mr. Hitchcock,
superintendent of public schools, .have commenced
rather a novel way to detect truant school-boys. Last
Thursday an order was given to arrest all boys found
on the street during 'school hours. ' Accordingly the
boys were picked up by the police and taken to the
station house, where they were kept until the hour
for the dismissal of schools, when all Were dismissed.
Just .before the dismissal, Ir Hitchcock called at
the station house and took the names of the boys,
their parents, and to what school they belonged, ask
ing bo other questions, thereby eliciting no false replies.-This
proceeding seemed to astonish the boys,
and it is believed will have the desired effect, as we
understand it will be kept up as long as boys are
found on the streets during school hourj. . .
fSf.We notice a little steam launch or yacht,
which has just been set afloat in the wafers of our
harbor from the deck of the A. Pojte. She is 40
feet long and 8 feet beam, and has a little fuur-blwWd
Smith's screw, tubular boiler and vertical engine.
She is for our townsman Mr. J. C. Pfiugcr.
An Lstehestino Sioiit. It is interesting en each
Sunday morning, at about 9 o'clock, to see the
children of the Industrial and Reformatory schools,
at Keoniula, marching in procession op King street
on their way to church. Their healthy, cheerful and
cleanly appearance constitutes the best argument
that can be adduced of the real value of this excel
lent institution, as it is now conducted.
' Portuguese Ballet In passing down MaosalM
street, tho other afternoon,' we went by a little insti
tution where a guitar was thrumming a sort of low,
slow waltz, to which sundry natives of the race of
vasco de Gomez were keeping up a monotonous stamp,
alias dance. They eccmcd to be enjoying themselves
quite rationally without the aid of bald-faced whis
key, or anything of that kind ; whereas the descend
ants of the Anglo-Saxon, without some such adjunct.
would have considered it as extremely doll music.
We were reminded of the sentiment of VoUUire re
garding the nations of the South and North of Europe,
that in proportion as the latter are withdrawn frctn
the land of the vine, in so much are they more in
love with its fruit But here the comparison fails,
as the attachment of the former races clings more
fondly to the juice of the corn and rye than to that
of the grape. ' It is rare that Our fellow Portuguese
citizens are betrayed into any undue fondness for the
corn and rye.. ' ..- i ' " '
Retail Shops. Napoleon First called the English
a nation of shop-keepers. Lie might have applied
the term with as much if not greater force to the
Honoluluians. We scarcely remember a town f the
size of Honolulu more amply supplied with retail es
tablishments, especially of dry goods, than ours. It
seems a mystery how they all live at the business.
The Chinese of course are in the majority, but there
are plenty of other nationalities as well. The fall
season is their harvest, and we suppose it is then
they moke up for the dull summer months. In the
season, the return of husbands, brothers, sweethearts,
&c, places the fair Oahu maidens in a position to
patronize the silk, satins "and laces of the stores, and
some of the finest fabrics are trailed along our muddy
streets and the purlieus of the fish market, on Satur
day afternoons, with an utter disregard of cost or
expense well, its all good for trade, to wo esy, let
The Tiiree-Mile House. Taking a ride towards
Ewa, one pleasant afternoon this week. In company
with a friend, partly on business and partly for
pleasure, ' we ' passed, just this .'side of Moanalua
brook, C a house cf refreshment at the side of the
road. . It was quite unpretending, but good. There
the thirsty and tired traveler could refresh, himself
with a glass of soda-water, ginger-pop, lemonade,
&c, and, if hungry, could get a sardine or two.
We made quite a lunch oq a side bone of ft oold
turkey, bread and cheese sol before us ty the lady of
the house, the proprietor being gone to Honolulu for
upplies we noticed on the shelf a saucer fall of
small riiins, and we understood the Us paid- amount
of capital invested being small. This is a real accom
modation for those who travel on business or other
wise down the country. Our friend Victor, further
down, has done a groat deal in this way. "Mr.
Clavie, a French gentleman, is the enterprising man,
and we wish him success. A few places of respectable
resort like his, is what we need in the environ, where
some rational enjoyment can be had on a leisure day,
out of the dust of the city. .
The FariND We regretted to see in the last Issue
of the Friend that the Editor's notes and reflec
tions, while passing along through the old world,"
were brought to a close. We have perused the suc
cessive numbers with pleasure, because they are tho
sketches of a fellow-resident of long standing in the
community, and we are enabled, as It were, to put
ourselves somewhat in his place, and form thus a
correct estimate of the impressions he received. It
is natural that the writer should be somewhat elabor
ate in reference to everything connected with mis
sionaries and religious missions, although we could
have wished that the descriptions of scenery, and
how places looked, had been more full. We were
particularly struck with tho visit to Jerusalem, be
causo it has always appeared to us as very appro
priate for a clergyman to visit the Holy City," for
there is where he takes bis meridian of departure.
Whether the increased fervor of th sermons preached,
since the reverend gentleman's return, have any
thing to do with any ojjlatut derived from the at
mosphere of the " Holy City," we leave his many
hearers to judge. One thing is certain, that they,
as well as ourselves, cordially welcome our friend of
the Friend back to his old sphere of duty and use

Monday, the 28th instant, was set apart as a
Government holiday, although we ace no notice of
its celebration in the official organ.. Almost every one
knows that it was the day .when the great powers
formally recognised the Independence of this King
dom. It was an act of justice, and should hav e been
done years before. It probably would Lave' been,
but for some latent jealousies existing between Eng
land and France. The latter power Lad converted
the native Government of Tahiti into a protectorate,
by which the Society Islands are still held. It was
thought at that time that France had some ulterior
views with regard to these Islands, and we remember
that that was the excuse ' given by Lord George
Paulet for the provisional occupation here In 1843.
But, to the enduring' praise of the British Admi
ral, Thomas,' the sovereignty of the islands was
promptly restored by that officer, when be learned
the facts In the harbor of Valparaiso. The' day of
the restoration used to be kept by Ilawaiians (the
Slst of July) w lib J great etnprtsstaunl, more so
than the 28th of November. The former day, bow
ever, has been discontinued as' a holiday, and the
whole patriotic furor oonfiaed to the celebration of
the latter, which is perhaps, all right The day,
this year, was an exceedingly stormy one, aad the
mud spattering about by -the reckless riders was a
caution to anybody in their .way ,The weather did
not prevent Hawaiian patriots and others from goisg
