Hi Rotal Highness the Prince Regent will
rclchrate liU tenUetl birth-daj (which occurs
tomorrow) on Mondaj next, wbea he will receive
tho public at Aliiolani House, bj per official
notice in another column.
Wi would call attention to the notice of the
Cntcnarj Communion, under the head of Bj
Authoritj." , Fyr the credit of Hawaii nei it is
to be rarneatlj hop; J that we shall he well and
Iargr-Ijr represented in the Grand Exposition at
Philadelphia jn 137C. Public attention in the
United States will be particular directed to
Hawaii and Hawaiian a 0 lira during the present
jertr, and f..r that reason a " department " with
contribution from these islands will be regarded
with increased interest. The list of objects sug
gwtl bj the Commiaioners is quite full and
varied, aixl amplo timc ncarlj a jrear is allowed
in which to collect and forward contributions' to
the depot in thLs citj. .
Iik American papers of late bare been full of
apparentlj wonderful accounts of the "materials
tit ion of spirit," as witnessed at Philadelphia
in the person of Katie King," a young woman
who is supposed to hare lived some two hundred
jears ago, and of numerous apparitions at the
KdJj Brotliers " farin-bouse in a secluded
vialiej of Vermont. In most cases in Vermont
these visitors from the spirit world are not onlj
son, but are felt, and enter into audible conversa
tion with tho spectators. But what strikes us as
very unsatisfactory is, that the information vouch
safed by these apparitions is quite raJueleaa. They
talk, vaguely, or sing, or dance, ot weave spir
itual cloth," but none, so far as we hare read the
accounts, tell m anything about the new life ; in
that respect we are no wiser than before the
a. J yen t of the spirits. That this spiritual business
is not all imposture or illasioo, seems admitted
by the wisest and coolest heads ; what the truth
about it U, remains yet to be Seen.

The idea thrown out by the writer, that the
Board of Education could advantageously under
take the publication of a periodical newspaper or
magazine in the native language, is an excellent
one, were there no present diJEculties in the way.
Tbe first and most important of these is the lack
of means at the disposal of the Board. The sum
of $80,CCO is provided in the appropriation bill
passed at the last session of the Legislature for
the expenses of the Bureau of Public Instruc
tion during the two years ending March 31st,
1876, and the items are specifically mentioned
upon which that sum may-be expended. More
over a section of the appropriation bill declares
that " The Minister of Finance thall not cause or
allow to be paid from the Treasury any money
for object not provided for by this law." Thus
it will be seen that however much the enlightened
gentlemen who compose the Board of Education
might be inclined to adopt the idea of a State
Educational Press, they are powerless to move in
the matter until the Legislature shall Lave pro
vided the necessary means.
But we are glad to see that the attention of
thoughtful and generous minded people is directed
to this subject, and that they are unwilling with
out further inquiry to adopt the cold and cheer
less theory that but a few more years will see the
last of the race. We trust that the discussion
will be continued, until the opinion shall prevail
that something 'in be done in behalf of the
Uawaiians which " neither earnest religious teach
ing nor an efficient administration of existing
laws will do."
The report of the capture of Nana Sahib at once
brings back to the recollection the most dreadful
crinrj which has bee a perpetrated in tbis genera
tion. At the outbreak of tbe Indian mutiny Cawn
pore was garrisoned by a handful of Europeans,
nnder the command of General Sir Hugh Wheeler.
The station was vigoronsly attacked by the Se
poys, but tbe defence offered by tbe gallant little
party was so obstinate tbat at one time hopes, were
entertained by them that tbey would be able to
bold out until tbe arrival of General Havelock.
Deatb, however, began rapidly to diminish the
number of the defenders, and General Wheeler,
seeing tbe hopelessness of contending any longer
against the overwhelming forces of the enemy, ac
cepted an offer from Nana Sahib that tbe garrison
should be permitted to retire to Allahabad upon
delivering up all the treasure and ammunition in
their possession. At the appointed time tbe garri
son, consisting of a few hundred men, women, and
children, embarked in boats for Allahabad. Ho
sooner, however, had they left tban the whole
party was attacked from the shore. Some of tbe
boat were sunk, and many of the men were killed.
Tbe survivors, consisting cbu-fly of women and
children, were taken back to Cawnpore. What
followed, we shall not attempt to describe In all its
sickening detail. Of tbe whole party some two or
three only escaped to describe tbe truly awful fate
that befel tbe "garrison. In one house were con
fined about two hundred and thirty women and
children, who were chiefly the families of officers
and soldiers of II. M.'s 32nd Foot. By orders and
under tbe personal supervision of Nana Sahib
were these unfortunate creatures, without excep
tion, put to a cruel deAtb. Says one narrator, a
soldier of the 8Uh Regiment: "Tbe whole of
tbeir clothing u torn to pieces, even the hair of
their heads was pulled out by tbe roots, the bead)
and bodies hacked and mangled to atoms : tbey
rest in a large well in the same compound, which
is formed into a grave over tbern, tho whole of
tbeir clothing, bloody, and their other little things,
are lying there at the present time." Two days
after the massacre tbe cantonment was recaptured
by the English troops under General Havelock, but
Nana Sahib escaped. Various have been the ac
count about tbe wretch since tbat time. The ru
mour tbat he had died was the one. however,
which has received general credence of late years.
Now we are told by newspaper reports, tbat he
has been captured In Gwalior by the Maharajah
Scindia personally, and tbat there Is no doubt
about his identity." As regards tbe motive which
prompted tbe Nana to order the massacre there
does not seem to have been any doubt. He was a
bastard connection of the reUhwaof tbe Mabrat-
tas, and upon tbe death of tbat chief tbe British
Government refused to recognise tbe Nana as Lij
heir. Such a recognition would have been accom
panied by a band some pension from tbe Indian
treasury. It was tbi refusal tbat infuriated tbe
Nana against tbe British, and that brought about
hi one terrible act of revenge. For tbat act he
ill now have to snffer. Tbe difficulty will pro
bably be to iuTent a punishment at all adequate
to his offence. One Indian journal has suggested
that, when captured, Nana Sahib should bejturned
loose into a regiment of European soldiery, " who
know better how to deal with a wild beat lb an
the English law understands." We admit freely
that no amount of reasoning can show tbat it would
be right to take revenge upon a criminal for tbe
crime be ha committed ; but in the case of the
author ot tbe Cawnpore massacre, there are good
men and true who. if they would not lend a hand
fa getting rid of tbe monster, would not at least
be unwilling witnes.se of his execution.
Condition of the American Navy.
The annual report of Secretary Robeson, is in
some respect tbe most interesting one tbat ha
been made by that Department since tbe war. It
shows the navy to be in a remarkably efficient con
dition, both as regard tbe number of vessels, tbeir
armament and sea-going qualities. One year ago
the nary consisted of 165 vessel of all classes,
carrying 1,263 guns exclusive of howitzers. Since
that time there has been added S new steamers, 2
clipper vessels and 1 di? patch boat, and it has been
diminished by tbe sale of 2 wooden and 11 light
draught Iron vessels, leaving at present IC3 vessels,
with 1.254 sruns. Of tbe whole number 20 have
sail pawer only, and of these 4 are to be placed at
the disposal af State and local authorities a school
ships, under the Act of Congress providing for
such disposition, ceven are in use a receiving
ships, 2 are old line-of battle ships which have been
on tbe stocks many years and are in bad condition,
and can be used only for barracks or stationary
schools ship, leaving 5 which can be put to prac
tical use or a store ships and surveying vessels.
Tbe steam navy consists of 137 vessels of all
classes and in a very good condition. Of ,this
number twenty-five are tugs, and with one or two
exception for yard pnrposeg ; 37 are armed ves
sels and 2 are torpedo boats, leaving 73 steam
vessel of the class originally adopted for cruising.
These are classified as follows : First rate, 5 ves
sels, 183 guns. 15,165 tons; second rate. 31 vessels.
510 guns, 57,128 tons; third rate. 31 vessels. 183
guns, 18,956 tons ; fourth rate, 6 vessels, 21 gun3.
183 tons, making a total of 75 vessels of 902 guna.
including howitzers, and 94,830 tons. It appears
from the report tbat the Secretary has given Us
special attention to placing tbe iron-clad vessels
of tbe Navy in a condition for active and efficient
service. The report says, or iron-clad or armed
vessels, 18 are of the first class and in condition
for active and efficient service ; 4 others, powerful
do'ible-urreted monitors, are actnally on hand nn-d-rgoing
repairs, and the fifth i well worth some
Attention ; tie rt-mainder may be counted as really
useless for any active and efficient purposes; 4 of
tbe largest of them, designed and commenced dur
ing the war. have never yet been launched, and
cannot be: in fact, only their wooden frames are
still on the ttocks. and tbeir incomplete plating
and machinery in store at Navy Yards, though
their names and designed dimensions appear on
th navy lists, and tbe remaining 12 of the class
known as light-draught monitor are not able to
carry tbeir guns and munitions of war, and are
vol cable only as old material. Seventy-three
steam cruising vessels, five of tbem over 2,000 tons
each, have remained on tbe stocks since the war,
and are condemned and laid up in ordinary as unfit
for farther nie. There are three others with con
demned machinery, and 41 are in commission for
various kind of dnty. Of tbe remaining 17, upon
which tbe Department most relies to take the place
or cruising vessel as they return home and are
put out of commission, 7 are laid up ready for ser
vice, 7 are being repaired and 8 are being built
under a special appropriation of Congress. Thus
it will be seen tbat one-half of tbe steam navy
adapted to cruising is in commission and in active
Jockxalism as a BcsisKss. la commenting upon
the failure of a newspaper manager, the St. Louis
Globs tells a plain truth in the following words :
The business of journalism will continue to be an
inviting field for experiments to those who have a
large amount of egotism. A man who, having edited
a newspaper until he was forty, should suddenly an
nounce himself a lawyer, would be regarded as a
fool by the legal profession ; and yet we often bear
of lawyers of forty making sudden pretensions to
journalism. There is an idea that tbe business of
editing requires no apprenticeship; that editors come
forth from law offices and colleges fully armed for tbe
profession, like Pallas from the brow of Jove. It is
a mistake; there is not in America to-day a siugle
journalist of national reputation who has not devoted
more time and more hard work to his profession than,
with equal fitness and application, would have made
him a great lawyer or a good doctor. And yet nine
ty out of every hundred men you meet on the street
will hesitate about carrying a hod or making a pair
of shoes, whereas there will probably not be one in
the hundred who can't, according to his own judg
ment, edit any news paper in the country better than
it is euueu, no matter in wnat manner or by whom.

Novel Notions. In his recently published work.
Unwritten History," Joaquin Miller advances
some novel notions. He would banib gold and
silver, as a commercial medium, from the face of
the earth. He would abolish the use of gold and
silver altogether, have paper currency, and but
one currency In all the world. He proposes to
take all tbe strong men now in tbe mines down
from the mountains, and build ships and cities by
the sea, and make a permanent commonwealth.
He argues tbat those thousands of men can, at
beat, in a year's time, only take out a few millions
of gold. A ship goes to sea and sinks with all
these millions, and there all that labor is lost to
tbe world for ever. Had these million bean in
paper, only a few hours' labor would have been
lost. There are two hundred thonsand men, tbe
best and bravest men in the world, wasting tbe
best years of tbeir lives getting out tbis gold.
Tbey are turning over the mountains, destroying
the forests, and filling up the rivers. They make
tLf land unGt even for savages. Take tbem down
from tbe mountains, throw one-half tbeir strength
and energy against tbe wild, rich sea-border of the
Pacific, and we would have, Instead of these broken
mountains, muddied rivers, and ruined forests.

the days of Adam.
Taeixo Cold. One way is to "bundle up" in
furs or mufflers tight about the neck ; take a brisk
walk, go into a warm room church, lecture room
or concert sit with your things all on, get warm,
perspire freely, breatbe vitiated air for an hour or
two. and when thoroughly relaxed, the pores of
tbe skin all open, go ont into tbe cold, damp air,
and you will soon begia to shiver. After having
a chill, send for the doctor, and he will dose yon
with something hot; then go to bed; then, if let
alone long enough, you may get up in a day or
two, and in a fortnight or so you mny repeat tbe
imprudence. We don't believe in furs : close, un-
ventilated. overheated rooms, nor in stupid care
lessness generally. There are several other wavs
to take cold. Wo will mention but one. and this
is to over eat." Stuff the stomach with improper
food, more than it can digest, and vou will soon
find yourself "all clogged up" with a cold. You

Bismarck and the German Eeichstag-.
Stirricg limes just tow prevail in Germicy. Tbe
debates in tbe National Parliament are proceeding
with unusual vehemence. Bismarck is finding mere
d.fficu'ty in carrying out his home policy than he
did in aecuriag tlie defeat cf Autria and "France in
tbe campaigns cf ltco and 1S70. The cable daily
bring us some new cause for discord. At cne time
it is the Arrest cf Yon Araim. At Another seme
prominent member of the Catholic hierarchy has
been sentenced to imprisoument or banishment from
the country. Then, when a bill is introduced for es
tablishing a Notional bonk, there is a protest from
Deputies who belong to tbe minor principalities set
ting forth that a Berlin institution has been selected,
for the Government patronage. Bismarck is realis
ing that in order to carry out the principles of Ger
scan unity as he understands them, he has under
taken what is perhaps the hardest task in his event
ful life. - -
It was easy to depose kings, pricoet , grand dukes
and the other sniller fry cf German royalty who
stood in the wsy cf unify for the FatherUnd. The
German people showed no signs of disapprobation
when Scbleswig was detached from Denmark, when
the power of Austria was humbled, or when France
was forced to pay as the price for peace, a large in
demnity and give up Alsace and Lorraine. But now,
when BUm&rck applies this same blood and iron
policy as it has been called, to tbe German people, he
fin-is that to Prussianise Germany is indeed a tough
job. Prussia, though now the controlling potrer cf
the German Empire, is not all Germany, and that is
where the trouble come in. Bismarck has been
trained only in the Prussian political school, the
most absolute in type, perhaps, cf all the Continental
powers In other parts of Germany more liberal in
stitutions and independent policies prevailed, as in
tbe old free towns of Hamburg, Frankfort, and Lu
beck. Tbe citizens of those districts outside of Prus
sia are not content that everything should be centred
at Berlin. Tbey desired tbe unification of Germany,
not the domination of everything German by Prus
sian institutions. -.
Bismarck, in the position he is now assuming, has
been compared to Cardinal Wolsey, tbe favorite of
Henry tbe Eighth, of England. Like Wolsey, he is
of humble origin. He has steadily advanced, until
he is now the principal man in Germany, as Wolsey
was in England. But it was the King who made
Wolsey, wbereaa it is Bismarck who made King
William an Emperor. It is known that the Emperor
William is not favorable to everything in Bismarck's
policy, bat the Emperor, not tbe subject, has had to
give way. Bismarck, so far, has "been the most suc
cessful diplomat and statesman of modern times, but
many think that he has now undertaken a task ia
which be must in the end be defeated, or the new
Germany will be reduced to the most absolute depot
is m of all theagovernments on earth. S. F. Bullitin.
A New Invention in Telegraphy.
The Frankfurter Ztilung announces that an offi
cial in the Bavarian telegraph service has succeeded
in making an apparatus which, if found to be of
practical utility, may effect a revolution in tbe pres
ent system of telegraphy. Tbe name of this gentle- ,
man is II. Becker, and the apparatus be has con
structed, and to which he has given the name of :
" Jolectro-magnetic copying machine," appears to be
a perfecting and improvement of Caselh s invention.
Tbe proprietorship of the apparatus has already been
purchased by tbe banking firm of Messrs. Oppenheim
& Weill of Frankfort. Without any assistance from
tbe operator it gives a fao simile of the original man
uscript telegram in whatever language written, sig
natures, portraits, music, plans, etc., conveyed tele
graphically to any distance, and in such admirable
perfection that in comparing ' the original with the
copy scarcely any difference can be discovered.
" We, ourselves," says the above named journal,
" witnessed the transfer from one apparatus to
another not only of tbe lines of welcome issued by
the Committee of the musical festival recently held,
profusely ornamented with instruments, wreaths of
laurel and oak leaves, as well as symbolical ara
besques, but also of bills of exchange filled up and
signed, state dispatches in cypher, telegrams written
in Greek and Hebrew characters, police notices with
tbe portrait of the person wanted, military maps
sucn as a general might send to bis subordinates to
explain the situation . described or mentioned in his
written dispatches or orders, together with the usual
service communications as telegraphed from one sta
tion to another. All objects intended for transmission
by this apparatus are written or drawn with prepared
ink, on silver paper, which is then, placed on a re
volving cylinder, and then telegraphed off to its des
tination, where it is received on clean tissue paper,
and reproduced with most wonderful exactness. V . ,

Maonktisu Vebscs Stkam. A very interesting
experiment was lately made in England, by which
a small yacht was propelled by the action of
wrought iron electro-magnets upon cogged cast
iron wheels attached to tbe shatt of a screw pro
peller, and attached by wires to a battery in the
engine room. . Contact was made and broken by
levers worked by cams, which kept the magnets
alternately in vivid action and reaction, by which
the motion was made continuous. 1 1 one was to
take a good many things for granted, it would be
worth while speculating upon the probable effect
on the coal market should this motor be utilized
for marine purposes ; but until the experiment gets

Governor Joe, of the Osages, is an Indian ot tbe
sort tbat our English cousins would style "a
thorough good 'un," his idea concerning men and
things being as advanced as they are sensible.
Unlike Uncle Ned." be advocates in the stron
gest terms tbe desirability of taking up tbe shovel
and tbe hoe, and going to work with tbem. and in
support of bis position be points with a very natu
ral pride to tbe good tbat has come to his people
since tbeir Great Father in Washington began to
make them presents of rakes and hoes and tbat
kind of thing.. As a Governor Mr. Joe is clearly a
success, and we are glad to see tbat tbe Commis
sioners of Indian Affairs are disposed to make
much of him. Indians of this description, in point
of rarity, bear a distressing resemblance to hens'
teeth, and when one is found he deserves to be trea
ed with marked consideration.
The Southern papers abound In state ments tbat
large nnmbers of colored voters cast their ballots
for Democratic candidates. One good turns de
serves another. These same papers have all along
asserted tbat the former masters of tbe freedmen
were tbeir real friends. Now tbat the black man
has signified his belief in tbat theory, we hope tbat
the whites will do their share In justifying his con
fidence. LjnCbings, Ku-kluxinjrs, and all such un
pleasant demonstrations ot wblte dissatisfaction
with tbe colored voters, should disappear in this
era of good feeling.
General Butler's defeat, according to the Salem
Gazette, is to be attributed " to his arroi?ane his
rapacity, his supreme selfishness, his natural affil
iation with every cause and every confederate tbat
