eommenoes on Mondaw next, January 4th.
Titscarora Mimstbels. These amateurs from tbe
U. S. S. Tvscari.ra give aa entertainment at the
Theatre to-night. Their performances are said to be
real! good quite up to manj professionals.

Correction. After a few of our CalenJtrs had
been printed, it was discovered that an old error of
seven seconds in the loDgitude of Flitner's observa
tory had been retained. The error was corrected in
the latter part of the edition. .
Db. Mouabeer. The Eat Indian doctor was be
fore tbe Police Court this week on several charges for
practicing medicine without a license. After trial, in
which the effense was proved, decision was postponed
until Monday, when we learn that several additional
cases will be brought against him.
Wooden Wedding. There was a large gathering
at Captain Hobron's, Nuuana talley, on Tuesday
evening, December 29th, to celebrate tbe fifth anni
versary of the marriage of his daughter and Mr.
William Bailey, of Wailaku. Everything was most
enjoyable, and wooden ware " of every description
was abundant. Friend.
New Dkco Store. Dr. G. Trousseau has taken
the premises on tbe south-east corner of Fort and
Merchant streets, which. ' he has thorongbly reno-
watprl nrwi fitted : no in a neat and handsome
trie aa a first-class office and drug store, with con- n
sultatioti and waiting rooms an ornament to the
corner. . - :
Thx Mail Steameks. By an accidental transposi
tion of lines, advertisements in our last were mode to
say that the steamer-for 8a a Francisco will sail about
Jan. 14, aod that for Sydney and New Zealand about
Jan. 10. It would be far preferable for island cor
respondence were it indeed the ease that the steamer
from the Colonies came last; but it is just the other
way, making a loss of time ia the transmission of
our letters, of one month.
Masonic. A correspondent at Wailuku sends us

which- was a success. His Royal Highness the Prince
HegeAt, with the Princesses Diminis and Cleghorn,
honored the party by their presence for several hours.
Quite a number of officers from the war ships in port
were in attendance, and a, large company of ladies
and gentlemen, who enjoyed themselves ia the dance
until past midnight.
Wht 13 This Tbcs T" The Gazette of this week
gives a very elaborate account of the Christmas
services and doings at tbe different churches in
town, even to the particularity of the hour and
minute when prayers and evensongs were said
and high mass celebrated ; but does not recognize
tbe fact that at " the little church around tbe
corner " the Bethel there were neat and appro
priate floral and evergreea docorations, excellent
ainging of anthems and Christmas hymns, and an
apposite and eloquent sermon by tbe pastor on
th Sunday before tbe holiday.
A Crtstal' Wedding. Yesterday, New Year's
Day, was the twentieth anniversary of the marriage
of the senior proprietor of the Commercial Adver
tiser, and this fact having accidentally come to
the knowledge of tbe printers in tbe office, they
planned and executed a genuine surprise by call
ing on Mr. and Mrs. Black on New Year's Eve,
(thus taking Old Time by tbe forelock) and filling
their side-board with a goodly array of useful and
ornamental articles of glass-ware tbe nearest
to crystal that Honolulu affords. Other " friends
besides the typos, also remembered the occasion
with appropriate presents.
Earthquake Shocks. Ther-5 were two very per
ceptible tremors of the Earth experienced in this
city early on Tuesday morning last, something over
an hour apart, the first and heaviest one being about
half past four. In both instances a rushing sound,
as of a high wind through a forest preceded the
shocks, which made window-sash rattle. Old resi
dents of Hilo tell us however, that these shocks oi
ours would be considered as "no great shakes "in
that district. But speaking of Earthquakes, we no
tice that Massachusetts has recently (Nov. 25) had
an experience in that line especially Essex County.
Any connection with the political demise of Ben
Butler ? though Butler, it may be remarked, is tbe
least likely to " stay dead " of almost any other man.
Murder Aqaix. We are pained to have to record
another tragedy on the Island of Ilawaii, which ap
pears to be acquiring an unfortunate notoriety for
deeds of violence. Our correspondent at South
Kona, under date of December 2oth, writes as fol
Oa Saturday night, Dec. 19th. at Keekee, in this
district, a young native, named Ealelepo, in the coarse
of aa altercation with his elder brother, named Naole,
stabbed and instantly killed the latter. The instru
ment used, was. one of the common, iron handled
pocket-knifes, marked A'ia Alaikai. There were
two wounds, one in the right side of the abdomen,
the second and fatal one into the heart Tbe scene of
the murder was in a grass-hut not far from tbe one
where the last murder in this district was committed,
less than a year ago. The murderer and witnesses
were examined before Judge Nahinu and Sheriff
Kaai, and to-day the murderer is sent down to Ho
nolulu on tbe schooner Uilama, committed for trial.
Several weeks ago a young native, named Kaulua,
living near Kailua, while out fishing, had his hand
(on the back and near the thumb) badly cut by the
sharp points on the back of a fish called alaiht. The
band swelled up enormously and, notwithstanding
medical treatment, lockjaw set ia and caused his
death last Sanday night. F. B.

jpr The New Bedford Standard, of Dec. 3d, biis
tbe following in regard to the King's visit : ' Now
that the King of the Sandwich Islands is on a viit
to this couutry, we think he fcliouU have a special
invitation to visit this city, He muni be familiir
with its name, and is perhaps acquainted with some
of our citizens. More than any other port on this
side we have commercial intercourse with the isU
ands, and the city government hliould do tbe King
the compliment of inviting him to visit us during
his stay in this country. He leaves San Franc isctf'
for Washington next Saturday, nnd au Invit
would doubtless reach him at the latter place
Smugqlij'Q Broadcloth. Since the native wash
erman was fined, as reported , in our last, for
smuggling cloth from a man-of-war, it has transpired
that others besides natives have been buying coat and
pantaloon patterns from seamen of tbe different ships
in port, and sending them to tailors to be made up.
This business has extensively been carried on of late.
It seems that tbe seamen can draw cloth from the
ship's stores when sometimes they cannot draw
money. Again, the cloth which cost them oo board
ship ten shillings a yard, can be sold on shore for
say twenty shillings. But as it happens that the
government gets no revenue out of these transac
tions, they are denominated as smuggling, and
hunted up accordingly, and the ofoth seixed and
confiscated. . . ,
Mistakes will Happen. Notwithstanding all the
care and watchfulness bestowed, mistakes will
sometimes creep in among the types, as all who
have bad to do wiirT'them must know. But in
throwing stones at one's neighbor,' it is well to
consider that our own habitation may he hurt by
return shots. So it happens that, the Oatetle in
bunting for errors in our calendar is not aware of
similar ones in its own, of quite aa much import
ance as are those it discovers in ours. We don't
care to particularize but the list of Trlvy Coun
cillors is incorrect with him ; and we advise him to
insure being on good terms with the Water Super
visor by inserting bis name, and not that of another,
in the proper place. Again, some people are par
ticular it may be a weakness ia tbem, but yet it
is a fact about having their names spelled cor
rectly io a public print j and .therefore tbe Gazelle
folks had better avoid being taken before either
tbe Police Magistrate of Honolulu or tbe Second
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. -
The Fireom Wednesday. About 10 o'clock oi
Wednesday forenoon, the alarm was sounded fro
the bell-tower, and simultaneauHly therewith a tall
pillar of smoke in the direction of Emma street in
dicated that a considerable conflagration was
already under way. On tbe arrival.of the engines
on the ground it was teen that the Gne large build
ing occupied by the German Club wan enveloped
in flames, and beyond any hope of saving a single
article of the contents. Fortunately again, there
was scarcelf any wind at the time, and with tbe
exception of a small bouse in the yard adjoining,
which was pulled down, no damage was done to
the neighboring property. The residence of the
Hon. A. S. C'eghorn, immediately adjoining mauka
of the Club premises owed its escape, first to the;
absence of a breeze, and Bocond to its being-embowered
in trees and shrubbery. Tbe heat was so
great however from the burning building tbat tbe
shingles on Mr. Cleghorn's bouse were at one time
smoking. The Club House was of course entirely
consumed, a low to the owner, Mr. James Lore, of
$3,500, on which there was no insurance. "The
members of the Club estimate their loss at from
$1,200 to $1,500, although there -were many articles
in tbe rooms, tbe result of the collection of years,
that were highly prized and upon which no mere
money value could be placed.' As to tbe origin of
the Ore, it remains altogether a matter of conjecture
Tbe building had . been locked up with no occupant
since the hour cf 8 o'clock in the morning, when
the janitor left to go down town. The first intima
tion of fire to the people ia an adjoining bouse, was
hearing several pistol-like explosions, presumably
caused by the bursting of keroseue lamps, when the
west side of the liouse was found to be already en
veloped in flames.

vompany No. 2, received a severe cut on his left arm,
