day of Alexander II. Emperor of Russia, and was
marked by salutes from the .Isfcold and Punchbowl,
and by dressing the two war ships in port. The
Emperor's birth-day occurs on the 20th of April.
He was born in 1818.
The Rifle. This company of volunteer citizen
soldiery deserve mention for the prompt and cheer
ful manner in which they responded to the call to
duty qn Tuesday last. Their ordinary turnout is SO
men, and on the present occasion there were 28 all
told. A portion of them were on duty all through
Monday and Tuesday nights, mounting guard at the
Magazine and at the .Armory.
Street Signs. Yesterday we noticed that the
signs designating the names of streets, which have
been non est for over a year, were again being put up
on the comers. This is very proper, and it is to be
hoped that the practice of defacing these signs by
rowdy boys, (which was the cause tf their removal)
will not be again repeated, or that if it is, the perpe
trators will be caught and severely dealt with.

The Fire on Monday. About 4 o'clock last
Monday, the bells sounded the alarm and the Fire
Department turned out promptly. The burning
building, a thatched cottage, was situated on School
itreet, beyond Nuuanu, and was destroyed before
water could be got on it. Xo. One's company, the
first on the ground, brought a stream to bear and
put out the ruins of the burned house. The occupant,
Mr. Kanihina, for many years known as a lawyer
about the Courts, has been for the past year or more
partially insane, and is said to have himself set it on
Firemen remark that but a small head of water
could be obtained from the hydrant on Nuuanu
street, and that in case of a fire, the water should be
shut oS below.
A Hawaiian Claimant. Last Wednesday, before
His Honor Judge Hartwell, was tried the application
of Kahoukua, a supposed half-brother of the late M.
Kekuanaoa, to be declared next of kin and heir of
His late Majesty Kamehameha V. The claimant un
dertook to prove that the present acknowledged heir,
Her Excellency the Governess of Hawaii, wa3 not
the daughter of Kekuanaoa, but of a chief named
Kahalaia. The examination of witnesses, most of
whom were very old native men and women, occu
pied most of the day, and on Thursday Judge Hart
well gave his decision confirming the legitimacy of
the Governess and thus adversely to the claimant.
Col. Jones, counsel for the claimant, gave notice of
an appeal to a jury. Mr. Stanley appeared for the
administrators and Mr. C. C. Harris for the Gov
erness. One to Six. Last Monday afternoon it was
deemed proper to place a guard at the Powder Maga
zine, on the base of Punchbowl Hill, in view of the
possibility of an attempt by the mutineers of the
Barracks to supply themselves with ammunition.
Accordingly, Capt. Alexander McDufF, of the Station
House, was dispatched to the Magazine, with several
constables to keep watch and ward. At about half
past eight o'clock in the evening, six of the mutineers
from the Barracks, armed with needle-guns, pre
sented themselves in front of the building. Captain
rT..a i i . i i . i ...
.ucduu uuu a. revolver, dui me constaoies were
only armed with sticks. The Captain demanded the
pass-word of the night which of course the braves
did not have and, under the persuasion of his re
volver, cocked and pointed, caused each man to
deposit his gun alongside the building, and then he
permitted them to depart in peace. Capt. McDufF is
i veteran, having seen active service in the East
Indies and elsewhere, and he "knows how it is
From Oregon. The barkentine Jane A. Falkin
burg, Capt. Brown, 18 days from Astoria, arrived on
Thursday last, bringing us Portland and Astoria
papers to the 23d ult. We note that island sugars
are quoted in the Aitorian at 12A cts. We copy the
following shipping intelligence : " Corbett and
Macleay, owners of the Sparronhawk, were the
purchasers of the Clara Louiie at Portland last
week. They got the Clara very cheap only 7,500,
and will load her for Japan. We understand that
Capt. Forbes, recently in the barkentine Jane A.
Falkinburg will go out as master of the Clara. She
is here under the Liberian flag, but will sail by the
way of Honolulu, be placed under the Royal Hawai
ian fiag, ship a kanaka crew and proceed. The
Sparrow-hawk will go from Melbourne to Manila,
We are glad to see Oregonians becoming interested in
vessels, but would rather see the vessels built here,
than to take them second-handed." The Portland
Bulletin of August 23d says there are about ten
cases of small pox in that city. No cause for alarm
was anticipated c f its spreading, as all the cases
were under careful treatment, but the Bulletin
urges the strict observance of the best precautionary
measures against the contagion, and calls upon the
authorities to exercise thorough measures to prevent

That the greater portion tf the capital i.f the king-
dota is invested in the production of sugar.
j In the latter interest, which was began in the
primitive manner, many experiments have boeu tried
and fortunes lost, until our planters may now le said
to have arrived at nearly perfection in the manufact
ure of the most profitable sugars. The plantations
afford employment to at least two-thirds of the work
ing population ; they have struggled against many
obstacles cf climate, and others. Owing to various
causes, the demand for labor has been so much iu
excess of the supply that wages have risen from $S
per mouth in 1850 to 10 and over ia 1S73, while
the machinery necessary for plantations costs fifty
per cent more than the same would have cost twenty
years ago. They (the planters) have submitted to
existing prejudices and poured ou their roads or
otherwise let run to waste, that portion of their pro-
! duct from which, by distillation, the planters in the
West Indies, Manila and elsewhere pay the entire
expenses of the plantation. Our plantations conse
quently having to contend in foreign markets at a
great disadvantage are with but few exceptions, iu
cmbarrasssed circumstances hampered with heavy
i debts, bearing an exorbitant rate of interest, and
from the present out-look have but Jishearteuing

They are now decimated by all the evils that here as
everywhere else, have followed the contact of the
Europeans with aborigines, and but partially pro

In my mind, and 1 am not alone in the opinion,
the great prevalence of leprosy is in part due to the
fact that so large a portion of the natives live on a
non-nitrogenous diet. They eat too little beef! They
are too poony ciaa and too poorly housed. They
have not the endurance of the Hawaiians of one
hundred years ago. These evils would be corrected
to a great extent, could the natives afford it. Now
we know that it is their first ambition to have their
families well-clad, then they aspire to a wooden

appealing to the pride, the amor palrice, of some,
in a " spread eagle " style as to parting with their

propnesying that it is but the first step towards an

the most senseless and groundless objections raised
among the natives in speaking on the subject. They,
of themselves, can know but little of the benefits
which would accrue to the kingdom from the simple
establishment of a well appointed naval station at
Pearl River, or at any other suitable place, aside
from reciprocity. Should that alone be the condition
and object of the cession, it would prove advanta

The people of the United States have shown by not
accepting the Island of San Domingo, that very

inducement can these islands offer after the establish

Pacific ? San Domingo is much nearer the United

Indeed it is doubtful whether the United States
Congress will assent to the proposed treaty. In all
probability it will be opposed by the Liberal Repub

cold water should be thrown on the project here, and
an opposition nursed which cannot fail to have its

of one industry, then that industry be it what it

A few historical facta taken from the early mission
report, and a few paragraph from letter written
by tho.se who initiated the mission work in Hilo and
Puna, will correct what may otherwise couvry a
t wrong impression.
. the mission work tuiy be tai l to have been begun
in Hilo in the year 1823, twelve year before Mi
Coan came to the Ulanda. la that year a deputation
of the mission consisting of Mewri. Dlia, Thurston
and other?, made a tour of the Island of Hawaii
They spent about oue week iu Hilo, visiting In the

ries. Accordingly in Jauuary, 1824, Mr. Ktigglef.,
one of the pioneer?, and Mr. Goodrich of the fiit
reinforcement of wiaaionarie, with their families,
took up residence at Hilo. Here they were well re
ceived au I nuccetsful in their labors. Two email
schools were immediately commenced, and a nativo
house was first used for public worship. Early in
March, 1824, a house was completed for the mission
families, and in May of the same year the church
was finished, the ninth that had bmi erected in the
islands for the worship of the one (Sod. The Influ
ence of Lord Byron, who showed himself a decided
friend, of the mission during two months of his stay
here iu the year 1825, was j-peclally favorable to the
mission work tit Hilo, where h stayed some lime.
Writing of the station at Hilo for that year, tho his
torian says : " Here at Ililo earnest inquiries after
the way of life commenced in January. The at
tentivenes continued, and increased, till in Novem
ber the house of worship was not large enough to
hold half the worshipers. In January, 1820, the
new house of worship at Hilo, '.10 feet by SO, waa oc
cupied and attendance on public worship waa greatly
increased. In April the habitual attendance at that
place was at least 2,HX). Iu 1827 the Rev. Mr
Bishop then located at Kailua, Hawaii, made the
tour of that island, visited Hilo, nnd wrote of that
station as follows : Preached morning and even
ing at the usual place of worship ; the houso was
filled and good attention paid in general to the word
Schools are multiplying and knowledge increasing.
There are several who meet regularly for aociul
prayer, and a few individuals give evidence of piety."
At a little later period Mr. Goodrich wrote, after
his return to Hilo from Honolulu, where he had been
engaged for a time in the printing department
On landing we were 'surrounded by multitudes
who extended to us a welcome hand, and were es
corted to our house by hundreds who appeared to
weep for joy at our return. Our house was throng
ed ; meetings for public worship unusually crowded ;
not more than three-fourths of the nMives could get
into the meeting house. After the exercises of the
morning are through, Mrs. Goodrich meets her Sab
bath school of about GOO or 400 scholars. Numbers
are ready to profess themselves on the Lord' side,
whenever it shall be decreed expedient."
The number of scholars reported for the districts -l
Hilo and Puna for the year 1820, is about C.&OO.
Mr. Dibble in his history has the following language
relating to the district of Puna, Hawaii : ' In the
year 1820, Hoapili sent a young man by the name of
Moo to be teacher for the district of Puna. He took
a central post and collected a school. So soon as Lis
scholars had made a little proficiency, he sent out
the best of them to be teachers of other schools, and
he continued this course till every village in Puna
was furnished with a teacher. The schools of North
east Hawaii come annually together at Hilo for ex
amination. The scholars and teachers anticipate and
enjoy the examination with much pleasure."
In the annual report of the A. B. C. F. M. for the
year 1828, the Rev. Samuel Whitney and Mr. Hag
gles are reported as occupying the station. The Rev.
Lorrin Andrews labored for a time at the same sta
tion, and in the report of the Board we find the
names of Rev. J. 8. Green and Rev. Sheldon Dibble
with their families stationed at Hilo. The number
of schools reported for the same year ia eighty-three,
with 7,887 scholars, and fourteen native churches.
In a joint letter by Messrs. Green and Dibble,
written from Hilo in May, 1832, they say: "In
January we had a general examination of schools
belonging to Ililo. We pointed each pupil to a verse
which we bad selected, and numbered none but those
who could read. We found nearly 2,000 who could
read. We have disposed of nearly all our books.
The people have recently erected a large and commo
dious school Louse, so near our door that our ladies
can superintend their schools with very little trouble.
We have four schools for males and as many for fe
males every week. We have selected a small class
of young men, of the most promising, whom we
meet twice a week."
Of itinerary work they write in the same letter :
" Since November we have visited the districts of
Puna and Hilo and have preached the gospel to the
poor wherever we have found them. On these ex
cursions we have preached about seventy times."
At the close of this tour, one of the missionaries
writes, " In this tour of seven days I Lave not put
oil' my clothes except for washing.' I Lave with
no little painfulness walked over burning lava under
a scorching sun, Lave sat, eaten and slept on the
ground, yet have been disposed to bless God for the
privilege of addressing thousands of my fellow men.
We Lave both visited the district of Hilo and exam
At the general meeting of the mission in 1832, the
Rev. Mr. Lyman was stationed at Hilo to be asso
ciated with Mr. Dibble, Mr. Green having removed
to Wailuku, Maui. In a communication from
Messrs. Dibble and Lyman to the Board in Boston,
dated October, 1832, they say : The morning ser
vice on the Sabbath (at Hilo) is fully attended. The
afternoon service is not so well attended as the morn
ing, though the congregations, if compared with
those in America, would be called overflowing. At
o'clock we have a Bible class, which is well at
tended. We have a Sabbath school of about 350

Mr. Dibble was removed from Hilo to Lahaina, to
assist in the mission seminary, and Mr. Coan was
assigned to the Hilo station, to be associated with
