Rev. I,. H. G click. We learn that this gentle
man has been selected by the American Board ot
Missions, as a missionary to Spain.
Benefit To-night. Mr. Brooks, the geutlemaoly
agent of the California Minstrels, . takes a benefit
this evening at the Royal Hawaiian Theatre. We
bespeak for him a full house.
Thb km op -tuk Skason." The whaling' vessels -have
all cleared, except two the Midas and Far

port until the arrival of the mail from the East,
EF" The SSTevada from Sydney and Auckland, ar
rived yesterday p. m., and the Moses Taylor from
San Francisco is due to-day. By these steamers several
of our citizens who have been abroad with their fam
ilies are expected to return.
Joint Benefit and Last Per formanc-k. Frank
Jones aud Jake Wallace, both favorite negro delin
eators, take a farewell benefit on Monday night.
We hope thy will have as they dewerve, a full
house, and they promise to put their " best foot "
No Meteors. The annual showers of meteors
which since 1831 have been seen on the nights of
the 13th and 14th of November, were wanting this
year, so far as Honolulu was concerned. Those
nights were clear, but observers report no more
" falling stars " than on ordinary occasions.
Locked cp for Triai A complaint was made
yesterday p. m., by a colored man named Goodwin,
(who appeared with a trifling cut on tbe bead) of
an assault on the part of a while man. Upon in
vestigation Mr. Goodwin was locked up ou the
charge of stealing a watch, to be heard this morning.
Contribution.- A collection for the fund in aid of
the sufferers by fire in the Western States, will be
taken up in the Kawaiahao Church to-morrow fore
noon. Tbe natives have expressed themselves de
sirous of adding their mite to help the unfortunate of
other lands. Let the fact be remembered to their
The Miners. These pleasant twittering, chirrup
ing little foreigners are getting very plentiful in and
about Honolulu, generally coming about the trees
and shrubbery in flocks of a morning. The Court
House yard appears to be a very favorite loeality for
them. What more natural, says Gammon, than that
minor $ should come to the Court for guardians?
Death of an Uxknowx. An elderly foreigner,
name unknown, apparently a German, and sup
posed to have arrived here from California, was
found on Tuesday afternoon on board of one ot tbe
coasters, in a dying condition. Dr. McGrew had
him conveyed to tbe American Hospital, where ho
died on Wednesday morning. His remains were
taken charge ot and buried by ' the Stranger's
Acction in the Cocntey. By advertisement it
will be seen that the effects of the late Victor Chan
oerel at Ewa, are to be sold at auction on Wednesday
the 22d inst, by order of the administrator, Marshal
Parke. Aside from the attraction of the Bale, is that
of a beautiful drive to the spot and back to town
over a good road, and the additional fact that a
lunch wUl be provided for visitors.
Amende Honorable. We are informed that our
itemizer was slightly in error in speaking last week
of the nevfly imported orioles " sweet songs." Our
ornithological editor, who was absent at tbe time,
now tells us that orioles do not " sing," and that
the sweet notes heard on that occasion were those
poured forth by a flock of turkeys, caroling their
morning layt. We accept the apology Gazette
Good Templars' Ball. We learn that a sub
scription ball for the benefit of Queen Emma Lodge,
No. 2, of this city, wilf be given on the evening of
the 11th proximo, at Buffum's Hull. The occasion
is an appropriate one, being the anniversary of His
Majesty's birth, and a public holiday. The object
also is a truly worthy one, being for the benefit of
the funds of a Lodge which has done and is still do
ing a great deal of good in promoting habits of tem
perance,' particularly among the native and half
castes of our population, of which classes its num
bers are largely composed.
Hotel Jokes. Snooks says he looked at the moou
last night through Wood's telescope, and it was like
the new hotel yard. ; Why T Because it was a costly
He says that the hotel is like a flock of Rams.
Vhy Because there's no ewes (use) in it !
- He says nobody can get into the rear of tbe
building to get a drink, because there are only fore
(four) entrances. He asked us finally what the dif
ference was between the notel and the subscribers to
it T Says one is -mented and the other fe-mented.
We kicked him out, though he added that he didn't

The Calendar. Monday 20th, St. Edmund's day.
He was King of the East Angles, taken prisoner by
the Danes, and his head cut off because he would
not renounce his religion. He was buried at St
Edmunds-bury, or Bury St. Edmunds, where an
abby was erected. Wednesday 22d, SL Cecilia's
day, which used to bo a popular anniversary in Eng
land. Dryden, Pope, and others wrote odes in honor

the early ages of the church was publicly read, and
was regarded as almost equal to those of St PauL
Police Court. The most important case before
this tribunal during the past week, was one which,
though but a small sum of money was in question,
involves a point of business practice of the auction
eers of this city. Mr. J. T. Waterhouse, merchant,
sued Mr. C. S. Bartow, auctioneer, for the sum of
82.75, money had and received, and not accounted
for' ' Tho dispute arose out of an account sales of
merchandise sold, in which the defendant had de
ducted that amount as a pro rata charge for adver
tising expenses. Mr. A F. Judd appeared as counsel
for the plaintiff, and Mr. R. H. Stanley for the
defendant, who pleaded the general issue." It was
argued on the part of the defendant that the charge
was a legitimate and customary one. and some evi
dence was produced ob the latter point. It was far
ther argued that a receipt given by tho plaintiff for
the proceeds of the sale, from which sum the amount
of the charge had been deducted, debarred him from
now disputing tho correctness of the account On
the part of the plaintiff it was argued that the goods
bad never been advertised, as the printed posters
were issued before they (the goods) had been placed
in the auction room ; that there was no contract,
implied or otherwise, which could hold the plaintiff
for the charge for advertising. The Court held that
the receipt was no bar to proceedings ; that " an
ancient, universal and reasonable custom " had not
been proved, of auctioneers making the charge ss
claimed ; and finally gave judgment for the plaintiff
with costs. The counsel for defendant gave notice of
an appeal to tho Sopreme Court. The ease of
the King vs. Wm. Humphreys, licensed wholesale
dealer in wines and spirits, for selling at retail with
out a license, came up on Wednesday morning, bat
was continued until Thursday morning on account of
witnesses not appearing who bad been regularly
subpoenaed. On Thursday the case was again post
poned, two of the witnesses for the prosecution,
Henry W. Worth and Charles E Obery, not having
been found, although warrants had been issued for
their apprehension for contempt Wm. Jackson,
Wm. Jones, and F. C. Forbes, were held for con
tempt, and ordered to give recognizances for their
appearance this morning, when the case will be tried.
A Comflaixt. A correspondent coinplainB of
the action of the Commissioners of Crown Lands,
inasmuch as they caused to be advertised for sev

on this Island, would be offered for sale at auction
on the 15th inst, but when that tim came, en
quiries or tne auctioneer resuiwn in tne iniorma
tion that the sal bad been withdrawn. This was
a considerable disappointment to one party who
bad intended to bid. Tbe inquiry U made. Lave

More Rubbish A correspondent calls attention
to the fact that some one has been piling rubbish,
sweepings, etc., on that part of School street to the
west of Nuuanu, which is incompleted. He inti
mates that tho rnbbish in question comes from the
premises of residents in the neighborhood. It would
be well for all to remember that the Board of Health
have designated, by public advertisement, a portion of
the Esplanade where all such rubbish must be placed.
A. regard tor the general health would counsel a
discontinuance of such practices. Tbe Health Officer
will be apt to enforce the law on offenders in this
The Concert. A large and brilliant audience
assembled in tbe Court House last evening on the
occasion of the benefit of Sig. Giorza, of Madame
States' Opera Troupe. The Court room was very
well arranged as regards seats, but was fearfully
warm. ' Her Majesty Queen Emma attended. Tbe
opening cliortu, by young Hawaiians, was sung
with due attention to time, but without expression,
the piano curried them through however. Tbe
Duet Elixir of Love," was accurately sung, but
Susini's voice over-powered Occbi's tenor. The
Serenade, with Violincello accompaniment, was
beautifully rendered. Robert til quoi J'amie, that
our musical friends have heard no magnificently
performed here, was well eung. Wo had no idea
that a building could be erected that could deaden
voices in the manner accomplished by the Court
room. Ceccbt was laboring under the effects of a
severe cold, and his voice was quite husky in con
sequence. - The Fantasia by Giorza was most brilliantly
played and showed great skill. The Ave that fol
lowed was tbe finest piece selected fur the even
ing's programme, and is peculiarly well adapted
to Mr. Lindau s voice. The Duo Uioletto was
well sung by Madame States and Orlandiui. We
had occasiou to notice tbe peculiar acoustic pro
perties possessed by the room, which while per
mitting every note to fall on the ear with unpity
ing distinctness, allowed no depths of soft sound
to linger in tbe melody. I lie Ave .Maria ry
Madame States with tbe lady amateurs to asint
terminated the second part. The singers should
have bad a larger ball, in order to bare justice
done them. The Trio with which the third part
opened was rather carelessly rendered. The bal
lad by Orlandini was well very sung and was warm
ly applauded. We cannot say that we particularly
fancied the Konianza. though it contained many
fine strains. Tbe piano voluntary by Giorza as
an exhibition of what can be done on that instru
ment by an improvisation was good. In a pecu
niary point oi view tbe concert was a success.
Mr. Editor : On opening the supplement to tho
Friend, under the caption " Wo left not one minute
too soon," I was surprised to find a very positive
editorial opinion relating to the abandonment of tho
whaling fleet in tbe Arctio ocean. I say surprised,
for it is very rarely that the Friend takes sides ;
rather preferring the quiet middle ground, perhaps
with the desire to avoid controversy. Tho writerjfor
the Friend has bad a " conversation with a very
sensible and reliable first officer of one of the lout
ships," and comes to the conclusion that the aban
donment was not premature. In fact the writer says
that this is ' the unanimous opinion of all the mas
ters, officers and seamen with whom he has con
versed ;" an honest admission that he bad beard but
one side of the story, and upon this based a very
dogmatic opinion. The writer has ' heard an oppo
site opinion expressed by some who never saw the
Arctio ocean," and considers it an easy matter to ,
criticise the action of the captains in abandoning the
ships. I confess that, after reading tbe first pub
lished statements, prepared by the ship roasters, I
was very much of the opinion of the Friend, but,
unlike the Friend, I waited to hear the other side
before pronouncing a decided opinion. I found it no
very difficult matter to hear the other side, simply,
perhaps, because I was willing to bear it. I, too,
have beard the statement of a very sensible and reli
able officer of a ship, yes of two of them, aud of sev
eral seamen, and find that there is a wide difference
of opinion relating to the abandonment. I have not
heard the opinion expressed that the ships could have
been brought out ; bat that by waiting until later in
the season a chance might have offered, and that
waiting was not a very dangerous matter, after hav
ing communicated with the outside ships. The day
the ships were abandoned was remarkably mild, so
much so that one of the masters, a leading spirit in
the movement for abandonment, declared, in lan
guage more forcible than elegant, that ' it would be
a disgrace to abandon on such a day," -I
read the testimony of tho Friend's witness with
some interest, and confess to no little disappointment
at the abrupt ending of the journal" on the
12th of September, two days before the desertion of
the Bhips. Possibly the witness could not be exam
ined farther with safety ; that he may have put upon
record an opinion at variance with that of the
Now I am obliged to make tho very damaging
confession that I never was in the Arctio ocean, and
here I may say that I do not think the Friend writer
ever was, yet, after hearing both sides of the matter,
I believe I am as well able to form an opinion as a
person who has beard but one side.
I cannot concur in tbe opinion " We left not one
minute too soon.'! Woden, J.

Mr. Editor : There has been a " slight unpleas
antness" in my family this week, owing to my pos
itive refusal to lake tickets for the Concert at tie
Court-IIouse, and with your permission I will briefly
state my reasons for what my wife (who has a con
suming desire to bo considered fashionable) calls
my "old-fogy obstinacy." In tbe first place, I ob
ject on principle to tb Court House being put to
any such uses by the Minister of the Interior, wbo
as I understand, has tbe control of nil public build
ing. I thought be was right In refusing the use o
that building a short time since for tbe benefit of a
religious societyand of course I think he Is wrong
now for giving it for the benefit of a stranger, of
whom we know nothing beyond the fact that ho Is
a pretty good piano thumper, and who goes out of
the country to-morrow. Secondly I am opposed to
encouraging onr amateurs, ladies or gentlemen, in
exhibiting themselves on the stage for lbe benefit
of such stranger. when we have in our midst so
many worthy charities the Stranger's Friend So
ciety. th Queen's lloppital, etc. lor the benefit of
which they have not yet condescended to display
their wonderful acquirements.,
I am, sir, yours, &c,

Mr! Editor On tho page of the Friend devoted
to the Yoang Men's Christian Association, I And tbe
following : Tho prompt interference of .the Minis
ter or tbe Interior with the coaling and freighting or
the Webb steamers on Sanday, the 22d ultimo, is a
graceful assurance of quiet Sundays in the future,
and significant of a favorable solution of the Sabbath
questions in our community." Let us all say. Am no.
Writers for tho opposition press, myself among tho
number, have always been on the alert to chronicle
and outcuss any lapse of duty of tho Ministry, and
now, when tbe Minister of the Interior baa taken a
stand for tbe lawful observance of the Lord's Day, it
is only just and manly that ho should be supported
Let the Y. M. C. A, pass resolutions of commenda

Hilo District, September ITith, 1671.
The rain that had been threatening lor me ihm
twenty-four bonrs, now erne down in sheets and
streams, suggesting dismal thoughts of the road to bo
traversed to-morrow. All through the night wo ore
aware of its dreary monotone, and f n our dreams fight
the floods and sound the depths of all the pools that wo
know are accumulating between us and sixtecn-miles-distant
Onomca. Ilowover, wo intend to
enjoy tho comforts that wc have, and let tho morrow
take care of itself.
Waking, we find it raiuiug still ; sfter breakfast
it still raiDs, and we mount our bokl in a blinding
storm that threaten to hold out all day. Our beast

is an excellent one to follow any other, but a poor
one to lead, and we therefore engage tbe services of
Amina boy to pilot us along. We find tbe trcaui!
no higher thau wo thought they would be, aud mo
tracking along the tnudJy road aud fording the
many swift torrents that cross our way, we reach the
shore at Laupahochoe and rct a few minutes. The
people wo meet hero report tho streams as rising,
but as none of them have acquired this knowledge
by to-day's experience, we push on. Soon after
leaving there we reach a raviDO through whi) a
stream is tearing madly, with sufficient depth an4
volume of water to forbid our plunging In to reach
the other side. A short distance above the usual
ford is a ruined bridge stretching crazily across tho
torrent It slants to one side, has a broken back,
and its floor planking Is broken through in a half
dozen places. Venturing upon it on foot and alone,
we find that it does not sink or shake badly beneath
our weight, aud so, selecting the firmest part of the
flooring we cautiously lead our bov's horse across,
aud returning, drive the hukl over. 'Tis done, we
are over, and cheered by the reflection that thia go lob
is the worst to be met with, we splash on our wet
way, and quickly reach tho valley of
Here, much to our disgust we Cud tho ford Im
passable. Our boy's horse tries it, and goes in for a
swim. 'Twont do yet awhile, and ob the rain hax
ceased to full, we conclude to wait awhile uud see if
the water will not soon subside.
While some food is being prepared, we hunt up an
old native hard at work under a shed miking canoe.
If one sees a native paddling around in tho still
water of any of our buys, ho tuny pnsmbly aduiiro
the light, graceful, odd-looking canoe, but would
hardly imagine tho amount of toil expended upon it
before completion. In the one that the old fellow we
are watching is finishing, there are aeven difjerent
kinds of wood, each one the best that cmi be lined in
the place where it belongs. The parts requiring
fastening together are lushed neatly with native
sinnett, and for each place there is a particular kind '
of braid made. Of course this is not new to you, but
the high water throws ua back on our surroundings
and wo write of what we see. Not all that cornea
into view mark you, for there are some things seen
in these out of the way place that have boeu cure
fully ignored in the past, and it does not coma withiu
our province to state them now. We merely make a
private memorandum for future use.
Find here a register of births and deaths com
menced in G3, and extending to the present time.
From it we find that there have been eleven births in
that time and fifty-six deaths. Tho ollest person Is
eighty-four, tbe average duration of lifo I thirty
seven years. Of the eleven born four are female, of
the deaths thirty-two. Tho average of life amongst
tho females has been thirty-one years. There prob
ably exists no good reason why these figures should
not be taken as a basis from which to calculate the
probable exietence of the Hawaiian as a nation. The
districts represented in tha record arc Hoiiomainoa
lbCtt and Maulua for the next threo years. The
probabilities are that as fair a proportion of the
deaths have been registered its could bo expected.
The greatest number of deaths occurred in '00 (1C)

After waiting about two hours, we concluded that
the water had subsided sulhioieutly to ullow us to
cross, and so we try it again. My boy with his
horse (trained to just such contingency) gets over
all right, but we notice that at on little point where
the strong current is compressed between two huge
boulders, the horse is almoKt swept away by the
swift deep stream. We try it, and upon reaching the
same place our uiiually sure-footed hokl loses his
balance and down stream we go ! Not far, for an
other boulder catches us and in the eddy that it form
the half-frantio tnulo touches bottom again. As wn
stand hero up to the saddle in. the yellow water, Y.
gazes sadly at his fast disappearing umbrella that tho
rude waves have torn from his grasp, (first turning it
inside out) and are now bearing oil to the sea near at
hand. The first thought that flashes through our
brain is bow very wet ! then with the help of two or
three kanakas we scramble out, and onco more plod
along; come to a fine bridge thrown over a raging tor
rent, get a glimpse of a splendid fall just below it, aud
then work along over tho muddy road, (made still
worse in places by frcah attempts to mend it), and
finally reach a little the roughest crossing we have
seen yet Picking our way carefully down tho rough
steep hillside, we find the water running like a mill
race sharply round a projecting blufl', and through
this we are expected to plunge to attain to the other
Putting the hokl at it, tbe sagacious animal, whose
nerves have been shaken by its late experience,
positively refuses to budge. Our thodghts imme
diately revert to a bouse that we saw tis wo came
along on the hill behind us, and we yield to tho
hospitable entreaties of the oooupant(wbo with his
family has come down to see us try to cross) turn back
and finding it to be 4 o'clock, make up our tninds to
pass tho night here. Finding here a " pearl of great
price," a native who can rpeak English. Since
Farting with my friend the S. M., yesterday morning,
have bad to air my Hawaiian much to the distraction
of the individuals practiced upon, and as my efforts
have generally ended in getting just the thing, or
information that I didnH want, it is a relief to Ixi
able to straighten thing out, and start fresh oguin
to-morrow. Supper is furnished, and as down our
unwilling throat the sole constituent of our evening
meal, the frisky shrimp, did crawl, we were reminded
forcibly of that referenoe of Solomon's to the sweet.'
ening power of hunger ; shrimps as a relish are
good, as a meal they an a failure at least such u
our opinion after devouring some hundreds. Tho
supper is the best that our host can provide however,
and the apologies with which h overwhelms (us
incline us to eat even more than we wish. The eight
of that family consisting of two dogs, two stout
bncks, one old man and woman, (members on suf
ference) one wife, and four children, gathered to
gether af'.er we had finUhed our shrimps, was worth
such a days travel as wo had, to see. In the but
squatted aroond a dirty calabash half full of slimy
poi, flanked by Small heaps of shrimps, were tho
two bucks and tho old man busily engaged in cram
mlng themselves. Clustered in the doorway wero
the two doga and four children, snappers up of un
considered trifles (viz.. live shrimps traveling their
way) while outside, under the lanoi, the two women
conversed over a smoky little firo fed by fragments
from a ruined hut near at hand. Their meal being
finished, tbe bucks stretched themselves out at full
length, and grunted aud bulled and snorted, while
the old man fed the dogs and children, after
which the old woman cleared away the fragments,
and (I have no doubt) heartily enjoyed her supper.
Giving tho native who understood English to under
stand that tho efilavi native to the hot would suffice
us fur tbe night without any farther addition to it,
and punching a bole through the side of our sleeping
place near -our bead, wo bad a tcu-hoar s'oep, from
which we awoke on Saturday morning to find tho
rain diwipaUd and the st renins passable. I any

At 1 p. m., after six hours travel over ten miles of

That every preparation had been mude at Onomea for
the approaching grinding scumou was apparent from
the trim orderly look of the apparatus, and to judge
from tbe dark green fields of waving cane, the (resent 1
seasons crop bid fair to equal any preceding one. - '
We were questioned in rgrd to the earthquake '
