Shifted his quarters to the mauka side of King

manner meet for approval.
Salutes. On Wednesday the French frigate La
Flore exchanged the customary salutes with the shore
battery. Subsequently, Her Britanic Majesty's Coui-
i missioner. and the French Consul both visited the
I frigate, and on leaving for the shore received the
salute due their respective ranks.
Item. The Lahaina packet did not sail as usual
on Saturday last, and the reason why was given on
Tuesday. Captaiu Crane tell us that there was
an arrival of a male specimen of the genus -irdea,
(see Webster) at his place on Liliha street Monday
morning, w hich he proposes to name N. MerrilL
A Cokrectiox. e desire to correct an errone
ous statement in our last as to
a reported suicide of
aed Davies. We gave
a young man at Haiku, nam
the report as it came from Wailuku
where it was
current, but we are informed by the Marshal that
investigation proved that the death was from natural
Burglary. We learn that the Empire Billia
Saloon was entered some time after midnight and
before 2 o'clock: on Saturday moruing last, and
robbed of $15 in cash, and some liquors and cigars.
.Money was the mam object of the thief, as every
thing about the bar was thoroughly rummaged.
From marks of feet on the floor the burglar was
supposed to have been a Chinaman.
bewildered. A seaman belonging to the English
man-of-war Seoul was brought tj the Station House
on Saturday night, he having been found wandering
about among the salt-pans at fisherman s loint.
He had overstayed his liberty, but gave as an excuse
that being in liquor, he got bewildered among the
salt-pans, and was unable to find his way out. The
excuse sounds reasonable enough, for the labaryntbs
there might perplex a sober mau.
From Hir.o. Our advices are to the Sth, last
Monday, when the weather was as moist as any old
resident could have desired, thunder rolled among
the hills, and the genial trades had resumed their
sway. Two whaleshipa were in port, which may be
looked for here at any day the iAimiUa, Captain
l'ulver, clean, and the Helen Mar, Captain Koon,
with 250 sperm. y
rEW sheriff We learn by otticial notiucatioi
in the Gazette, that Mr. Samuel W. Wilcox has been
duly commissioned as Sheriff of the gubernatorial
division consisting ol the Islands of Kauai and rsii-
Uau, in place or .Mr. v. u. tnntn, resiened to ac
cept the Lppointment of Sheriff of the gubernatorial
division consisting of the lslauds ot iMaui, Molokai,
Lanai and Kahoolawe.
A Serious Charge. A native man named Mahoe
was on Monday arraigned in the Police Court on a
charge of having intercourse with a female child un
der fourteen years of age. The punishment for this
offence by our law is imprisonment at hard labor not
less than three nor more than eighteen months, in
the discretion of the. Court. 'He prisoner pleaded
not guilty, and on motion of counsel the case was
postponed. It occupied several days in the hearing
and was finally dismissed and the man discharged,
Proper Vigilance. We believe in giving credit !
wherever it is due, and therefore find a subject lor
commendation in the prompt action of the agent of
the Board of Health in Iookin? after nuisances and
matters deleterious to the public health. It should
be remembered that the warm seiion is approaching.
It may not be amiss in this connection to state that
the small-pox has tustde its appearance iu some parts
of New Zealand, and the newspapers there are couu
selliDg a re-vaccination of the people.
From Micronesia. AV learn that by the way ol
Auckland, intelligence has been received from th
liev. Mr. ytniifes at i'onape. nader date of Decem
ber 1st. lie repoits all well ut the mission, and
happy in their work. Since his return to his field
of labor, eiglity-eiht members had been added to
the church, and the missionary work was progresa
iug favorably, the natives taking an increased in
terest in church building. Letters from the Rev.
Mr. Doane state that owing to the continued illness
of his wife, he should be compelled to leave the
station, probably not to return.
In this connection we have a report that the
niau-stettlers of the I'aciSc have recently pnid a
visit to one of the Islands occupied by our mission
and carried off into captivity some of the poor in
habitants. The lr. S. government should have a
steamer constantly cruUing in that part of this
ocean, to capture and bring to justice the wretches
who like Hays and i'ea re constantly prowling
in those unliequented seas to prey upon the simple
Naval. The French frigate. La Flore, Admiral
Lapelin, arrived at this port last Tuesday evening,
having sailed from Tahiti, March -3d, making the
passage in 17 days. The La Flore has on board 410
men and is a screw steamer of 4o0 horse-power, and
18 guns. We give below a list of her officers :

The Gat Season. After a short rest enhanced by j
the observance of the Lenten season with us, Hono- :
lulu gives tokeus of the approach of new gayeties, !
ns well as the revival of standard jollities and
amusements. We are a pleasure-loving community, '
and periodically find ourselves in the condition of
Sam Welier. who on a certain occasion, gave as an
excuse for what seemed extravagant mirth, that he
"must open the waive a little or bust ! " In fact
all that is required to bring our people out, is the
prospect of witnessing something really good or :
amusing. Of course we understand fully that a
certain prestige must attach to anything placed be-
fore the public, else will the heroes of the sock and ;
buskiu, the vocalist or instrumental artit-t, the burnt I
cork delineator, or the dansuese, ia vain strut their !
little hour upon the stage, send out upon the listen- :
ing night the strains from throat or instrument, '
twang the banjo iu a break-down, thump the tam
bourine against the woolly pate, or tread the mill '
a thousand miles away." Placed as we are at a
convenient resting point in mid-ocean, we receive '
the artists from either hemisphere, and growing wise
by experience are often hypercritical, and when that ,
fails, we ' go where (fashion) leads us," often rush- ;
ing from the extreme of fastidiousness, to the whole
sale indulgence of a freak of fancy. At j resent we
have the prospect of being able to satisfy our highly
cultivated tastes as art critics, aud our more natural
fondness for good clothes and harmless gayety, all
clustered round His Majesty at the entertainments to j
le given, during the coming week by the Zavirtowski j
Sisters. The Theatre, we understand, has been reu- j
ovated, and we expect the ' Sisters " will achieve a

The Ciri.kw. The sportsman par excellence of
Honolulu. S. K. Kawson, was out one day this
week on his raids against the birds, and besides
numerous ducks and plover, bagged a dozen cur
lew. This is a splended game bird, rather bard to
get. and is much esteemed by epicures. It is de
scribed by ornithologists as of the genus Nnmenius,
and the grallic order, has a long crooked bill, wide
wings, rapid flight, and a color of asb and black.
It belongs to the same family with the woodcock
and sand piper. Tbejr are as we said, not easily
bagged, and the bringing to town ol one do.en Irom

about. We leel a gastric melancholy in parting

two on Maui, and several cases where cattle have
been killed. The late electric storm was in our re

The Koa. Looking into Fisher's cabinet shop the
other day, we were struck with the beauty of a large
counter in process of finishing, made from broad
slabs of the koa. This wood that is so valuable for
all purposes where a lasting and beautiful material
is required for furniture or interior fittings, resembles
in its close grain, toughness and weight, the English
oak, but is far more beautiful. The surface, after
being polished has a peculiar satiny sheen, and a
depth of color that rivals that of mahogany and satin
wood. The name koa, is singularly enough oak
transposed. We would call attention to the fact
that tens of thousands of young trees are being de
stroyed every year by the wild cattle roaming at will
over the mouutains. Near Kilauea is a magnificient
grove of these trees, that is growing smaller all the
time through waste, and in a few years the supply of
our Hawaiian oak will have been used up, unless
some means are taken to preserve the young growth.

Melancholy Death of Da. Bebaz. By the ar
rival yesterday of the JVellie Merrill from Lahaina,
intelligence was received of the finding on Tuesday
morning last, of the dead body of Dr. II. Beraz, a
much esteemed German physician residing ou Fast
Maui, under circumstances that indicate that he was
either drowned in crossing the gulch of Kapi.i, or
that he had met with foul play. A letter from an
intelligent native, Mr. L. Aholo, relates the following
circumstances : " On Thursday, April 4th, Dr.
Beraz left Mr. Unna's house and went to the Catholic
Mission, reaching there at 10 v. M , and stating that
he was going to visit a sick woman further on. The
priest urged him to stop for the night, as it was very
dark and rainy. The Doctor, however, insisting upon
going, the priest loaned him a cloak. This was the
hist heard of him until Friday morning, wheu the
cloak and the saddle cloth of the horse ridden by the
Doctor were found on the beach by a policeman, who
recognized the cloak as belonging to the priest,
by whom it was also identified as the one loaned to
the-Doctor. At first it was supposed that the articles
found had been dropped by the Doctor, but as Sat
urday and Sunday passed , without hearing from him,
anxiety was felt, and on Monday morning search be
gan to be made. Two women vtho were engaged in
picking limu at the beach, discovered the body in a
hole in the rock?, and on its being taken out it was
j recognized at once to be that of the unfortunate Doctor
Beraz. It was quite destitute of clothing save a tie

Emtor Commercial Advertiser Dear Sir:
Allow me space in your columns to call attention to
the existing state of the moorings at Kaawaloa.
The buoy was laid some nine months since in sev
enteen fathoms of water ; I measured the depth
yesterday and find the depth of water alongside the
buoy to be twenty-nine fathoms and a half ; thus
allowing only three feet of slack chain as if I re
member rightly the length of chain attached to the
buoy is only thirty fathoms, however the buoy has
shitted almost two hundred fathoui9 from the place
where it was first placed.
A stitch in time saves a dozen, and the removal or
relaying cf the said buoy will probably save you the
trouble of reporting the loss of one of our coasters or

You are aware how Hilo was lately honored by the
fleeting episode of two or three Illustrissiiuos from
the sacred precincts of the Court, who, for reasons
stamped as sound by the practical generations are
known in common parlance (the wisdom of many
aud the wit of oue), as big bugs. Naturally the
parade of such entymological giants through our
humble streets could not escape aurmise, and it
would be strange if among the divers speculations
whispered round by venturesome curiosity, the main
spring of the motive which impelled thia singularly
plurul visit just at this time (between the ballot and
the battle), had not been spotted, which Mrs. Gamp
declares it was the inevitable Mrs. Arris conceived in
her own precious bosom. I can't preteud to illus
trate the shrewdness of this slowest fpot in all crea
tion by any detail of the guesses that were made.
But amid the confused and solemn hubbub I caught
the single word " intrigue," a distincter note in the
nebulous noise, aud bugged it at a venture. Abu

I have been reading 40 days of the Tichborne
trial. No one can read that remarkable case without
being struck with the high toned courteous manliness
of Judge and Counsel, only equalled by their sur
passing skill and wonderful intelligence. I should
tbiuk that any inferior man of common modesty and
; self-appreciation would shrink from au offer to be
: placed in any degree in a position which might sug
, gst comparison. But some folks are ready to umler
. take anything, and Ben. Butler thought himself a
i better soldier than General Graut. How many
: candidates might we look for iu reply to soiue such
: advertisement as this ;

equity, noble, notable ; in the process of his Iif;,
; iucocent ; iu the passages of state, wine ; iu aflec

don't think the way to find such a man is to pass

The lyric stage U not fre-o from the realltle of life.
A.Melbourne weekly journal record Inst a some
what unexpected Incident occurred in the Princes
Opera Ilon-e during the performance of " II Trova
tore.' on Monday night. Wheu Slgnor Cecchi and
M-dame Slate had uiiiahed thu duet which brought
the third act to a conclusion, the prima donna left
the stage rather abruptly. The tenor was discon
certed, and on reaching the wings made use of some
uncomplimentary allusions in very choice Italian
lo the lady. He was overbeard by Orlandini. woo,
probably moved by a cblvalrlc desire to defend
the fair name of Leonora, and avenge the wrong
of the Conti di Luna upon the body of Manrico,
drew his sword and made a rush at the base tra
ducer. Fortunately the sword was blunted, and
the weapon glanced harmlessly oQ Cecctn's breast,
but inflicted a flesh wound upon his hand. Quick
as lightning Manrico drew his stage sword, and but
for the interference of the chorus a most drama! io
conflict would have taken place behind the scenes.
If Melbourne is to be visited by many more Italian
artistes, we fear that a strong force of police will
have to be kept behind the scenes.
There is among tho French people a ftronennd
growing dinttoeition to rid themselves of M.

charged and by all parties with having estab
lishes! a pcisonal government more absolute than
that of tne ex-Etnjcror. His enemies say that be -assumes
to infallibility, even in question with
which be is entirely unfamiliar, and wf.ilo bo
makes bis Ministers not bis colleagues, but hia
clerks, bo resents all interference, all criticism,
of bis nets, and all opposition, Triwhen made
by the National Assembly. These ara eo'ja0,
the reasons why M. Thiers is unpopular. ,
