The attention of Inspectors of Election is called to
thff decisions of a Judge of the Supreme Court, in
1S09, by the effect of which Inspectors are not limi
ted, ia qualifying woters, to those persons who hare

The uames of those who pay their taxes subsequent
to January 1st, may be added to the list by the In
spectors, but only at the regular sessions. These
sessions must be cf least two in number; the first can
not be held earlier than the 12th January, and the
'ast not later than the 221 January after which
date no additions to the list of voters can be made.
The session most be duly advertised by notice of the

NOTES OF THK WEEK.
Tiie Next Mail for the East will be dispatched by
the bark Cornel to sail about the 27th instant.
Corrections. The Ketch Lunalilo was sold at
Auckland for 800, instead of XI, 000, and by Capt.
Hatfield, instead of Capt. Hadley as stated in the
Gazette. Nor did the Alacgregor arrive here on the
13th, 23A days from San Francisco.
Accident. Last Sunday night Mr. Wm. Brash,
' Sen., was run over by a carriage on Nuuanu Avenue,
and somewhat severely injured. Carriages should
be either provided with lamps on dark nights, or else
be driven slowly, in the city or on frequented, roads.
" Death of Fernandez. Many who have traveled
on the steamer Kilauea will regret to hear of the
death, on Wednesday last, of the gentlemanly and
very efficient steward, Fernandez. He leaves a widow
and three young children, for whom his foresight had
provided by a life insurance of some $3,000.
Pacific " Hose Compasy No. 1. At the regu-1-r
meeting held on Monday evening, January 12th,
the following officers were elected for the ensuing year:
Foreman Jas. W. Robertson.
Jlsit. Foreman F M. Fuller.
Secretary Thomas Tannatt.
Treasurer II. Mclntyre.
The Nettie Merrill. This favorite Lahaina
packet is at present undergoing some repairs, ner
hull and timbers are as sound as ever, but the bul
warks above the deck have become decayed and new
ones are being put on. The JVetlie is a swift boat
we have heard it asserted that with stiff trades she
comes up " to blow " only twice between Diamond
Head and Lahaina which is probably the reason
why the present repairs are necessitated.
Concert Troupe Comino. By letter from San
Francisco we learn that Master J. W. McKenzie, the
" Young camornia Baritone," will soon visit tins
city with his Concert Troupe, and will give a series
of concerts. ITa U h tgu..-, a - c
for his age, possessed of a voice of most wonderful
power, richness and sweetness. His troupe consists
of Madame Anna Stevenson, Prima Donna Soprano;
Signora G. Baretta, Prima Contralto; Signor Carlo
Alott, the Great Gilvcr Vulvcd Tenor; aut Vrvtwor
J. Goodman, celebrated Pianiste.
The Pele failed to bring the Comet into port last
Thursday evening, although she was near the en
trance before C o'clock. The consequence was that
the bark stood oil for the night, and sailed into port
on Friday forenoon. But suppose she had anchored
outside and during the storm had gone ashore, with'
loss of cargo and possibly of lives, there would
have been louder and deeper grumbling on the streets
than was heard yesterday about the very independent
and unaccommodating style in which our tug-boat is
managed; and something might have been done
Committed. During the recent trial for mayhem,
iu the Supreme Court, it transpired that one of the
native jurors, named Kaokou, hod approached the
ilcfondant with the view of obtaining a bribe. He
was arrested on the charge of attempting to pervert
justice, and au examination was had in the Police
Court. It appeared by the evidence of TJaua and his
wife that Kaokuu came to their house, previous to
the trial of Uaua for mayhem, and stating that he
(Kaokuu) was one of the panel, suggested that by
paying a sum of money $80 was mentioned the
jury would be conciliated and the defendant acquit
ted. He also stated that this course had been pur
sued in other cases, which had resulted in acquittal
of the person accused. If this were true, which
we cannot believe it would constitute an irresistible
argument for abolishing our jury system. Kaokuu
was committed for trial at the next term of Court
Local Brevities. Newspaper people are the only
ones in this community who never know what it is to
" let up " in their work. The standing excuse with
many for the non-performance of some every day
duty that it is 44 steamer day," avails nothing with
the newspaper man his tale of bricks must be made
up. N. B. We are out of straw.
The Kixauea. on her last regular trip down from
Maui encountered quite a storm of wind and rain.
Everybody went below. Then the transoms were
fastened down, and the cabin shut. Then, there was
a call for 44 tin things." It couldn't be helped. , Those
who stayed on deck didn't mind it, he was the Cap
tain. The engineer forgot to open the door from the
cabin into the engine-room, and none of the passen
gers could get a sniff of hot air.
Everybody knows that old Bilkins is a sharp
customer. And last summer lie " tried it on some
new 44 help " that he had hired off whaleships.
He called them up about half-past three the first
morning, had them hurry up their breakfast, and
while they were eatiDg it, he went and got out the
horses by candle-light to have them ready for the
44 boys " to go plowing, when they had finished their
morning repast. Then he came back to tlie liouse,
and found the 44 boys " had all gone to bed again !
He saysjthe degeneracy of the age is awful.
.I' f'r 1 Xfn- nennw iw. M
rs"e at Bilkins Senior. It seems that Mac had had a
falling cut with young Bilkins, and the next day the
old man, (whose grey hairs demand our forbearance)
entered Mac's store, and thus addressed the unsus
pecting proprietor: 44 So you have had some words
with my son, friend Mac ?" 44 Ves," was the reply;
I told him my mind pretty freely." "le-e-s,
yes," responded the aged man. 4 Well, friend Mac,
I had a dream about you last night." V hat was
it?" Mac inquired. 44 Why," said the old man,
slowly, 44 1 dreamt that you was a thief and a liar.
Ye-e-8, 1 did indeed !"
Is order to ease the minds of some who are over
anxious to gossip about other folks' concerns, we are
requested to state for public information, that Capt.
has sold his schooner; that he nas Bought him
self a gold watch-chain; and that he has 44 treated "
an old friend who is a coasting Captain as well as
himself to a bottle of champagne ! N. B. This in
formation may be depended on as reliable.

marked that for a passenger bbip, she was in rather
an uncleanly state, and did not compare well iu this
respect with boats of the Webb Line. This was
excused on the grouud thnt she hud been hurried off,
immediately after her arrival in Sydney froiii China,
without time to clean up. But wo loam from the

Thirty Days of Hawaiian History 4.
11V 8ANFORD B. DOLE.
ELECTIONEERING MASS MEETING.
A few days after the appearance of the manifesto.
a paper printed at the Government press for parties
who were anonymous, was distributed secretly by
night through the streets of Honolulu, of which the
following is a translation :
44 THIS IS THE TRUTH !
44 On the lGth day of the present December, a
proclamation was issued in this city, commencing as
follows: I, Wm. C. Lunalilo, the son of Kekauluohi,
the daughter of Kaoiehameha I. to the Hawaiian
Let the genealogists see, and they testify this :
Kekauluohi was not a daughter of Kamchameha I.
as asserted in the publication. But her line is after
this manner : Kaleimamahu lived with Kaheiheima
lie and Kekauluohi was born thence; and Kekaulu
ohi lived with Charles Kinaina and thence was born
the Chief Wrm. C. Lunalilo.'
On the nther side this is the real truth : Kameha-
mcha I. (after the birth of Kekauluohi) lived with
Kaheiheimalie and thenow won hnrn ICinaiv K'inna
him . ir. ivckuanaoa ana tnence was uoru the
two Kings now deceased. But in regard to the re
ationship of Kamchameha I. to Kaleimamahu it is
as follows : Keoua Jived with Kckumnoiwa thence
was born Kamchameha I. afterwards Keoua lived
with Kamakahcikuli, and thence was born Kaleima
uoiiv, irs - vf Kckavtuviit. 2'tils nl so is the
truth : Kamchameha I. lived with Kackapolci
thence was born Kaolciohoku, a male, the first born
of Kamehameha I. Kaolciohoku lived with Keoua,
a female, and thenco was born Pauahi, which female
chief lived with M. Kckuanaoa, thence was born the
sister of the late King, Ruth Kcolikolani. Kaolcio
hoku further lived with Luahine, thence was born
Oh people, you here have the truth, and the rela.
tionship of these chief families to Kamehameha.
By the skillful Genealogists."
44 N. B. By the foregoing genealogical accounts it
j will appear that the Chief Wm. C. Lunalilo is not a
'descendant of Kamehameha I."
No satisfactory conclusion can be made from the
genealogical authorities of tho Ilawaiians. Jarves
makes Lunalilo the grandson of Kaiana the brother
of Kaeo, an ancient King of Kauai, and Dibble makes
Kaeo the uncle of Kamehameha 1. and he and the
44 skillful genealogists " agree in making Lunalilo the
grandson of Kaleimamahu, who was the son of
Keoua and half brother to Kamehameha I.
Whatever of truth or probability the foregoing
publication may have contained, it was regarded by
the people as a mean attack upon their favorite; aud
the secret manner of its distribution with its anony
mous character added to this feeling. This evidence
of opposition unknown in strength and working in
secret had the effect very materially to stimulate the
Lunalilo party, and the signs of its power and
growth became more positive every day.
As the tide of popular feeling for the Prince in
creased, efforts to swell it to the utmost that it might
sweep away all opposition assumed a more public
character. The independent ne wspapers in both lan
guages, were covered with leaders and articles abso
lutely committing themselves to the fortunes of his
party, and in which they boldly charged all opposi
tion in such positive terms as to assume the enthrone
ment of their candidate as a fait accompli and all
hostility thereto a3 already treasonable. In the
streets, and in the fish market at Honolulu, where at
certain times large numbers of people congregated,
stump orators from hitching-posts or fish counters,
harangued willing listeners and easily drew enthusi
astic applause by a judicious use of the magic word,
Many who had hitherto wavered and refrained
from supporting any candidate, and some who had
openly opposed the Prince, now one by one declared
in his favor. These changes of base by which dis
creet individuals endeavored to preempt in the for
tunes of an inevitable destiny caused much irrever
ent amusement among the sagacious ones who had
adhered to him from the first utterance of his claim.
About this time it w is reported that the rival can
didates, with the exception of CoL Kalakaua, had
waived all claim to the Throne in favor of Lunalilo.
There does not appear to be any evidence that Queen
Emma made any effort toward the sovereignty or
that she troubled herself ut all about the matter or
regarded her own prospects, and it conveys a false
impression to speak of her as a candidate. And so
far as definite report goes, the s.tinc is true of Mrs.
Pauahi Bishop; forasmuch as 'he King lu his last
severe attack just before his death, distinctly, but
informally, proposed to her thnt she thou Id be his
successor, which flattering oflt. she declined.
The number of people in Honolulu was materially
increased during these days by additions from the
other islands. Every steamer and sailing vessel that
came into the harbor was crowded with men, women
and children; attracted thither by the political situa
tion and the coming funeral of the late King.
On the evening of the twenty-sixth of December,
a mass meeting called by a number of white and
native citizens through the newspapers, was held at
the Kaumakapili Church. This building had been
used a number of times during the interregnum for
political meetings until it had acquired a character
like that of Faneuil Hall, in revolutionary days.
When its bell, which hung in a low belfry of wood
near the church-yard gate nas rung out of tho usual
hjuia, the natives ail through the town would throw
dywn whatever they had in their binds and leaving
their work er abatements would run for the ebutch,
such wit thtir interest in the rvliiics of the times.
lti this occa'.otj aj the Ull sounvled frth its call, the
po !c begu to collect and at the appointed time
haf au Lour Utor the church was ailed with a Jene
crowj if which the great tasjonly wer native. The
staud object c: the meeting was to take menaurea f. r
the election on the fiit of January rtfled f,.r the
mftife$tv of Lunalilo, and for such ConuItatii.u upou
civil mtttcra and such expression of pioioo as might
be apprcriate After the meeting was oianiteJ,
two resolutions were paaaed referring to the vacancy
of the Throne and the proposed election an 4 calling
upon all citixeus vf the disttict to assemble at the
polls according to the augjeniou of the manifesto, ou
the firt day of January to choose their King The
second resolution recommended that a committee
thirteen be cLotcd. who should make all necessary
arrangeuents for the election, which was immediately
acted upon, and the committee, including both natives
and foreigners, was appointed by acclimation. A
third resolution was then c-flered which read as
follows: 44 Resolved, that this meeting acknowledg
ing the justice of the claims of Hit Ilighnoss Prince
W. O. Lunalilo to the Throne of the Hawaiian Islands
as the successor of His late Majsty Kamehameha V.
aud approving of hie guarantee to restore the Con
stitution cf the Hawaiian Islands, and to fully
maintain the rights and liberties of the people as
stated in his manifesto f the ICth of Iieertnber,
1S72, express their hearty support of His si 1 Iligh
noss Prince W. C. Lwnalilo as a candidate to the
Throue of the Hawaiian Islands." After several
speeches this was passed with much applause. Next
followed a motion by Mr. Whitney, editor of the
tTuokoa, a native weekly newopaper.. 44 Ih-wolfeJ,
that we the people do hereby instruct our four Repre
sentatives in the Legislative Assembly to vote for
Prince W. C. Lunalilo for King, and for no one else."
This was instantly adopted with the must uproarious
enthusiasm. Mr. Whituey then related au incideui
of the infaucy of the Prince Mr. Bingham who was
about to perform the ovremony, asked, " what shall
we call the child!" Kanaiua, the father, replied,
4Wm. Charles Kanalna." No;" objected his
mother, the noble Kekauluohi, 44 He Is the highest
chief in all the i&lands, therefore his name shall be
Lutia-lilo." This little narrative 44 brought down
the house " in a wonderful manner; all present stood
up, swinging hats aud handkerchiefs aud nhouling
in the most tumultuous way. And then the work cf
the meetiug being satisfactorily accomplished, with
three grand cheers for Lunalilo, the great audience
broke up. The effect of this assembly was healthy
in its influences upon the polities of the time. It was
significant of the earnestness of the people and
helped to silence those who ridiculed the idea of a
popular election for a King.

The Times announces the acceptance nf Hckles'
resignation. It says Lu has done his best to em
broil tho country in war, and adds that th recent
negotiations with Spain were enniedou without
reference to Sickles in any woy, hi own bad tem
per and worse judgment having rendered it Impos
sible for the Spanitdi Ministers to hold any Inter
curu with him at a very early date.
According to a special denpatcb Kent to New
York, Culeb dishing, who is to represent onr flov
ernment at Madrid, disagrees with the opinion ex
pressed by Attornoy General WiUUtua In regard ti
the Vinjiniuit. It is also slated that the course of

dinregard of the Spanish Cabinet. The truth of
tho report that Spain has demandod the yennt I is
Tho appointment of the lion. Culeb Cunning In

to Spain gives almost general satisfaction here.
Mr. Gushing is considered to be the man who I
best able to fulfill the duties of Uuited States Min

to be most delicate and vitally important.

New Youk, Dec. 30. Lieut. Commander Jlas
well, of the Ossljtee, made the following statement
to-day concerning the loss of the irginUut :
The Ositip'e left Torttigas with the Virglnut In
tow, on the morning of the 19tb. Tbey had fair
weather until the afternoon of Saturday, tbo fol
lowing day, when a gale sprang up. Thry contin
ued to have bad weather, and the I t'rt'nf signal
led that she was leaking badly. Captain Walters,
therefore, determined to shape bis course for
Charleston, South Carolina, but as they got into
smoother water, the Virginia behaved better, and ,
the water was kept out of her Ore-room. On the
morning of Christmas Day, tbo aevero weather hav
ing continued, the Virginia was again leaking n
badly as ever, and the vessels put into FryTog
Pan Shoals, about ten miles south of Cspe Fear
light, where smoother water could be obtained.
Here the vessels came to anchor. Captain Walters
hoping that the Virginius would ride out the gain.
Before daybreak the next morning, Friday, Com
mander Woodrow signalled with lights that the
Vlrginiu was leaking rapidly, wUh Urea out and
pumps flopped, and- that the crew wished to bo
taken off. Boats were lowered from the Otsipet at
daylight, and by 7 a. M.all on board tbo Mrginin
were transferred to the former vessel. As a heavy
sea was running, the work of removing tho crew
was one of much danger and difficulty, and, there
fore, no lives were risked in endeavoring to save
personal effects or any other property on tbo fir-
gmius. I ne nawser oi tne r irgvnu was cut, and
a buoy attached, to mark the position, ia com fche
sank out of sight The OmijHe remained at anchor
during the day, and at a quarter past 4 r. m. the
trgniu, wDiiD nad been gradually selling, went .
to the bottom. She sank in eight fathoms of water; t
ber topmasts remain above the surface. The Ossi-
pee then resumed ber voyage.
