NOTES OF THE WEEK.
The regular monthly meeting of the Ha
waiian Mission Children Society willbe held this
evening at Mr. J. G. Dickson's at 7$ o'clock.
Thanks Ours are due and hereby tendered to
Capt. Shepherd of the D. C. Murray and Purser H.
Craig of the Nebraska, for files of late papers.
Evening Sale We beg to call attention to the
sale of goods adapted for Christmas presents, at
Bartow's, this evening.
Christmas Eve. At St Andrews Cathedral, the
Carols will be sung, after the usual evening ser
vice. At the Roman Catholic Church, there will be
as usual, midnight services and illuminations.
A Rare Attraction. Mr. Geo. Pauncefort will
present readings from Dickens to-night at the The
atre Christmas Carol and Boots at the Holly Tree
Inn. We anticipate a full house.
Queen's Hospital. We beg to call attention to
the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of the
Queens Hospital, which will be held at the Court
House on Thursday the 28th inst., at 11 o'clock.
Kaiigiits of Pythias. The next regular conven
tion of Oahu Lodge No. 1, K. P., will take place at
the Lodge Room on Thursday evening, Dec 28th.
Business of importance.
St. Ai ban's College. On Tuesday evening next
there will be a re-union of parents and scholars
and others interested, at the College. Kaalaa, when
there will be a distribution of prizes, and speeches
and recitations by the scholars.
We would like to inquire of oar neighbor the
Gazette whether when the Atalanta, " missed her
helm " coming into port this week, she found it in
the Captain's cabin, or under she t'gallant fo'cas'le?
or whether the carpenter had forgotten to pat -it on
board before leaving New Castle ? The probabilities
are that with the Gazette itemizer on board, she was
so "down by the head" that she couldn't get by
the bar, without stopping awhile.
The Dab i en Canal. Commander Selfridge has
made his report to the United States Government,
showing that a good ship canal can be constructed
across the Isthmus of Darien at a cost of $125,000,
000. There will be one tunnel on the entire route,
which would be 170 feet in height to permit the pas
sage of ships, 70 feet wide, and five miles long. Ha
So much for the reliable.
Police Court. On Thursday and Friday, a good
portion of the time of the Court was occupied in
hearing a civil suit, in which John McKeague is
plaintiff, and J. R. Helen defendant, for the sum of
$150, received by defendant as part payment on a
policy of insurance for $5,000, in the New York
Mutual, of which Mr. Helen is the special agent.
The plaintiff avers that he misunderstood the bargain,
as made with the agent, and wishes to annul it and
get back the amount already paid by him. This the
agent declines to do. but claims that plaintiff is in
debted in an amount of balance of premium. Deci
Foul Weatiier. The souther which let up for a
day or two last week, came on again with recruited
energies. The wind, with varying power, baa blown
quite constantly from the southwest, accompanied at
times with heavy showers of rain, and occasional
flashes of distant lightning. On Tuesday night,
some observers declare there was a shower of hail,
but we hear of no one who was out in it to verify
the statement. The sea on the reef has all the week
been a fine sight, tumbling in with huge white
rollers, and at times breaking clear across the mouth
of the harbor. The JVettie Merrill, Captain Crane,
which left Lahaina on Monday, reported the sea as
very heavy at that place. The captain's boat was
capsized in coming off and he badly injured by get
ting beneath her, and narrowly escaping being
drowned. The storm has quite interrupted our usual
coasting trade, and delayed the arrival of the United
States mails per steamer from California.
More Murders in thb Pacific By the way of
Sydney we have accounts from the Fijis under date
of November 8th, giving an account of the murder
of Mr. James Meldrum, master and owner of the
schooner Cambria, whom our readers will remember
to have sailed hence for the Fijis last summer. The
unfortunate man was killed by the natives of one of
the Solomon group, whither the schooner had gone
on an expedition after "labor." She returned to
Livuka in charge of a Captain Sinclair. At another
island of the same group, a whits man named Col
lins and a Sandwich Island native, had been left by
a brig for the purpose of collecting trade, Collins
was lulled by the natives, but the Sandwich Island
msjk was protected by a chief. At the Fijis, in the
early part of November, five planters, Englishmen,
going from one island to another, with some forty
Solomon Island laborers on board, whom they had
bought and were taking to their plantation, were
all murdered, the "labor" rising upon them in the
Forefather's Day. Yesterday December 22d
whs the Anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrim
Fathers on Plymouth Rock, and some of their de
scendants in Hawaii nei remembered the day by
placing on their tables a suggestive bowl of "Suc
cotash." Two hundred and fifty years have
The breaking waves dashed high
On a stern and rock bound coast
Aad the wood against a stormy sky
Their giant branches test ;
And the heavy night hung dark
The hills and waters o'er,
When a band of exiles moor'd their bark
On the wild New England shore.
And a remarkable coincidence it was that in that
ftame year, 1620. the first importation of African
slaves was landed on the shores of Virginia. Thus
the two antagonistic principles were planted and
grew side by side, with what momentous results,
we have seen in the recent war of rebellion. The
descendants of the Pilgrims are to-day happy in
the knowledge that the principles that animated
that determined band of exiles "on the wild New
England shore," htwe triumphed, and with the Eng
lish poetess can proudly sing
"Ay, call it holy ground,
The soil where first they trod !
They have left unstained what there they found
Freedom to worship God."
The Tan yah What is it? This is the beading
of an item in the Country Gentleman, a standard
agricultural paper of New York state. The in
quiry comes from Georgia, where the plant is said
to be much esteemed as a vegetable. The descrip
tion given leaves no doubt but that the " tanyafa " ia
the common taro of the Pacific, the arum esculen
tum. which was introduced into the Southern United
States by Wilkes' Exploring Expedition. The

The Calendar. Besides Christmas, which is the

have during the coming week three swfnt's days.
Tuesday, December 26th, St. Stephen, the first
martyr. Of St Stephen nothing is known except
that he was chosen one of the first deacons, that he
was devout and eloquent, and that he was the first
martyr, having been .stoned to death by the fanatical
Jews, some of whom, as St Paul says, thought that
by so doing they did God service. Being a day of
rest our forefathers of England turned it to account
by making it a practice to bleed their horses. Wed
nesday, December 27th, St. John, apostle, evaugelist
and martyr. This, the beloved disciple, was one of
Zebedee's children, aud brother to St. James the
Great. He was the youngest of the twelve, and to
his charge was committed the mother of Jesus at the
foot of the Cross. It is supposed that he remained
in Judea as long as she lived and then preached in
various parts of the world. In his old age he was
sent to Rome by Domitian, and there before the gates
Porta Latina, he was put into a cauldron of boiling
oil, from which, says tradition, he not only escaped
without injury, but acquired a more juvenile ap
pearance. He hal previously had a cup of poison
offered him, but before putting his lips to it, the
poison, in the form of a snake, escaped from the
cup. He was banished to the Isle of Patmos, where
he wrote the Book of Revelation. After Domitian 's
death he returned to Ephesus, where be wrote his
Gospel. At this time a report got abroad that he
would not die, but would await the second coming of
Christ. But on reaching the age of KM) he fell
asleep. St. John is also held in high esteem by the
Order of Free Masonry, as being one of its principal
patrons Thursday, December 28th, Holy Innocents
Childermas Day, iu commemoration of the chil
dren slain by order of the tyrant Herod. It has
been well observed that the Church commemorates
three kinds of martyrs, each being exemplified in
the three days past : 1. Those who, like St. Stephen,
are martyrs both in the will and the deed ; this is
the highest kind of martyrdom. 2. Those who, like
St. John, are martyrs in will, but not in deed.
8. Those who are martyrs in deed, but not in will.
as ware those innocent babes commemorated this day.

The California is a fine specimen of naval archi
tecture, and carries 21 guns. She is of the propeller
class, with engines of 1500 horse-power, nominal.
Through the kindness of Mr. S. Ames, navigating
officer, we have been furnished with the following
particulars of the weather encountered by the ship
on her passage to the islands : On the morning of
the loth of Dec., in Lat. 22 57' N, 151 87 W,
the breeze freshened from the S S E, shifting to the
westward, and gradually increased to a moderate
gale force 8. This gale lasted about six hoars, and
from the indications the ship was on the eastern edge
of a cyclone, moving N N E and N E. On the 17th
it came on to blow again, but not as strong as on the
15th. The barometer fell from 29.89 to 29.76
strength of the gale about 7, with occasional squalls
of about 10. The direction of the wind in both cases
was from the S S W, veering to the westward. On
the 19th sighted Maui and Molokai, when the wind
blew strong, sometimes as high as 10, from S and E,
shifting to S and W. The ship was hove to a part of
the time under close reefed main-topsail and spanker.
On the 16th a heavy swell was encountered from the
N and W, which continued until the arrival here, be
ing but slightly interrupted by the cyclone. The
swell was probably the efiects of a heavy gale to the
N and E of the ship. Both the JVaraganselt and
Moses Taylor were probably out of the line of the
two cyclones encountered by the California, but the
Mosez Taylor may have been in the track of the
gale producing the heavy swell spoken of above.
Oallll C ollt Re.
In our last issue we alluded to the term examina
tion of Oahu College. Since then we have received
the following account of the exercises from oue who
was present :
The regular term examination at Punabou, occurred
on Thursday and Friday of last week. We were
glad to observe an unusually large number of
patrons and friends of the school present to see for
themselves what progress the pupils are making.
The various classes showed that there bad been hard
work done by the teachers, and. In most esses, by
the scholars. It is evident that a large number of
young people of both sexes are laying a good founda
tion for a liberal education, both in the class's, and
in common English branches and mathematics. We
are particularly pleased with this, as there seems to
be a tendency with some educators to direct the
studies, of young ladies especially, to the " accom
plishments' as they are called, which is but another
name for being superficial. At the same tiavi that
classical studies are given s due prominence, the
natural sciences, music, snd drawing are not neg
lected. The exercises closed with a few declamations and
some spicy and very original compositions that took
well with the audience. We would suggest to the j
young people at Punahou that they cannot make too
much of these rhetorical exercises. The sbility to
speak with ease and grace before an audience is of j
the greatest value to a man in any station, and the
ability to read well is another accomplishment worthy
of the ambition of every pupil of either sex. The i
students at Punahou ought to strive for greatca
strength of voice. As s school tney speak wits too
We take pleasure in saying in this connection that
Oahu College commends itself to those who have
children to educate, as worthy of all confidence,
both as a place of instruction, and at a hems for
those living too remote to attend as day pupils. The
trustees have put aU expenses at the very lowest
rate that the funds of the institution will allow, aad
they intend to employ only competent teachers, and
those whose influence will be good outside of the
recitation room, as well as in it.
All that this institution needs to enable it to afford
facilities to students equal to those found in the older
home colleges is a larger endowment fund, so that a
fuller corps of teachers can be afforded, better
apparatus procured, and a lower rate of tuition
offered to those who need assistance of this sort.
There is wealth enough in this kingdom to do this.
Will not the friends of the young, and the friends of
Hawaii contribute to so good a cause ? It would be
money well expended. Will not the young men
who have been connected with the school rally around
it and contribute to its material strength ?
