Supreme Court January Term.
The Court was opened on Monday tbe 4th inst.,
His Honor Chas. C. Harris on the bench ; His Ex
cellency R. II. Stanley, Attorney General, appear
ing for tbe Crown. The following is a summary of
the business done so far.
Rex vs. Palaualelo, Larceny.- Appeal from Dis
trict Justice of Honolulu. Verdict of guilty, and
sentenced to six months imprisonment.
Rex vs. John Kaili, Forgery. Committed by I
Police Justice of Honolulu. Verdict of guilty, and
sentenced to six months imprisonment.
Tuesday and Wednesday were occupied in the
trial of Kepio, charged as an accomplice in the
uurder at Hilo in July last. Tbe jury were not
allowed to separate during the trial, but were
lodged at tbe Hotel on Tuesday night. Tbe case
was submitted on Wednesday noon, and at 7
o'clock in the evening the jury came into Court, una
ble to agree upon a verdict. It is understood that
they stood seven for acquittal and five for convic
tion. Messrs. Dole and Green appeared for tbe
prisoner. Tbis case will be retried some time be
loretbe close of tbe term. -.
Yesterday morning the case came up, before a
native jury, of His Highness C. Kanaina, vs. the
Administrators of the estate of Kamehameba V
Tbe plaintiff claims to be the rightful heir of said
estate, through bis son Lunalilo, deceased, who
was the cousin, and as is contended, tbe only sur
viving blood relation of Kamehameba V. The
case is of one little interest, involving as it does
the ownership of large properties.
At p. m. yesterday, the jury in the above case
returned a unanimous verdict for tbe defendants.
We give a recipe for keeping tbe times hard.
Let everybody talk depressingly. When any
one fails in business, put it in all tbe papers. Let
business men keep up perpetual complaints. Let
us have occasional editorials inciting bread-riots,
and political speeches on the wrongs of the labor
ing classes. Let everybody prophesy a bard
winter, a very hard winter, an awful bard winter.
Let us all talk down, instead of up. Let us talk
no account of tbe fact that lour is cheap, and that
tbe harvests are large, and that God is good. We
shall in this way be able to take another faggot
from the poor man's beartb, and knock another pane
of glass out of bis window, and hinder the manu
facturer from employing bim. All together now
ministers, editors, capitalists, and laborers ; let us
give a long, deep groan, and keep it going till next
spring, and the times will be as hard as we could
reasonably expect. Christian al Work.

A Pxzrrju For any one to read the GasttW ac
count of the Transit of Venus without getting mys
tified with contact of rules," " sun planet,
"measurements of planets," " Cuspus," and the
" meridian of Saturn." But perhaps our failure to
comprehend it is all " owing to the sun having been
Xatives in the Liquor Bcsixess. On a trial in
the Police Court the other day, it was in testimony
that at a house on Mauna Kea street, owned and oc
cupied by a native, brandy was retailed to natives,
by natives, at 25 cents a gloss, without a license, of

Tub " Kilacea." Our steamer is hauled in to the

been disappointed! I The writer says he saw some
fifty or sixty acresjoi as fine looking cane as can be
found in any part 'of, the islands, but which must be
allowed to rot on the ground and turned over to
cattle and hogs for tbe want of a mill to grind it.

Beer Selling. In the Police Court on Wednesday
two parties were fined for selling an intoxicating
substance known as beer, one $100 and tbe otber as
accessory, $35. In the course of the trial it became
pretty evidenthat one of the witnesses for the
defense had laid himself liable to a prosecution for
perjury, and he was held to answer. After a night
spent in one of the cells at the station house, be
came before the Court and acknowledged to having
worn falsely, and stated that he had been persuaded
and bribed to do so by the native lawyer for the
defense. A nolle pros, was entered in the case of the
recanting witness, and the lawyer is to be proceeded
against for subornation of perjury. Thus this mis
erable beer business is 'leading the people to crime
and the states-prison.

Banquet of the Knights of Pythias. On Wed
nesday evening last, the officers elect of Oahu Lodge
No. 1, K. of P., were installed by David Dayton,
Deputy Supreme Chancellor. After the ceremony,
tbe brethren, with invited guests, adjourned to Buf
fum's Hall, where a sumptuous repast was spread,
under the tasty supervision of Bro. Kt. C. F. Horn,
and where several hours were passed in pleasant social
intercourse. 'Among the guests were representatives of
the Masonic and Odd Fellows organizations of the city.
and tbe beads of the Fire Department. The first
toast of tbe evening was " His Majesty the King and
the .Royal Family," which was duly honored, and
responded to in an appropriate speech by Bro. Pa9t
Chancellor Jno. A. Hassinger. The health of the
" Supreme Chancellor, Knights of Pythias of tbe
World," having been drank, in response to a call
thanks were briefly returned by Bro. Esquire E. S.
Davis, the son of tbe Supreme Chancellor, attached
to the U. S. S. Tuscarora, who has been initiated
and proved in Oaha Lodge. On behalf of the Ma
sonic Bodies, the A. & A. Scottish Rite and the Com-
mandery, responses were mode by their presiding
officers, Bros .. Dayton and Macduff ; and on behalf
of the Encampment and Excelsior Lodge No. 1, by
D. D. G. S. David Flitner. Among tbe regular toasts
of the evening were "Absent Brethren;" "the
Order Universal ; the "Press;" and of course,
The Ladies." Some very pertinent and interesting
speeches were made, and the occasion was one of un
alloyed enjoyment. ' Oahu Lodge is now in its fourth
year, having been instituted August 20, 1871. It
numbers about fifty members in good standing, has
disbursed something over GO0 for relief of sick
members since it was first organized, and has a
balance in its treasury. It is one of those institutions
which in their spheres are quietly doing a good
work in the community. As was remarked by one
of the speakers at the banquet on Wednesday even
ing, when a man becomes a member of one of these
Orders, " it is apt to make him a better husband, a
better father, and a better citiien."

The Weather is deserving cf an epecisl item.
It is very rarely that the temperature has been so low
in Honolulu as during a number of days past, and
never, during the last twenty-five year, does the
memory of a resident for that period certify to so
long a continuance of uninterrupted coed weather.
The wind has been varying from North to Northwest,
at times blowing half a gale. -The thermometer at C
a. St., since this month came in, has ranged from 52
to C2, having on Tuesday last touched the former
figure. The abeence cf ice in the pitcher, under
these circumstances, has not been complained of, and
while old residents have felt the cold uncomfortably
nights and mornings, new comers declare the weather
to be perfectly delightful. But coughs and colds

first to the last it was perhaps two minutes. People
here say that it was equal to the one of 1868, though
not of so long duration. We expect some news from

not the Minister of the Interior, or some one else

Square who will see to its proper care and manage-'

sance of its being converted into a chicken ranch and
grass farm, a horse is sometimes to b seen posturing
itlrin the enclosure. Now instead of gates, there
should be turnstiles on each side of the enclosure so
that horses cannot enter; and the place should be

Mr. Editor A correspondent in the Gazette,
signing himself " Evolutionist," amuses me. He bos
evidently been annoyed at your article upon tbe re
canting of bis file-leader; but lacks the manliness to
come out openly as his champion. Your articles
from two well known, and duly credited, papers on
coffee and milk aod chalk are put forward as the
cause of bis hot displeasure, and from behind a
wordy dissertation, .which must have taxed his lexi
cons sadly, be flings his shaft in defence of Atheism.
The truth is sorrowfully Btrained in his assertion that :
"Tyndall has merely denied eome faUe statements
made against bim." - ...
You were generous enough to give Mr. Tyndall
credit for a display of moral courage in making the
honest statement at Manchester, that the doctrine
announced at Belfast " did not commend itself to his
mind in hours of clearness and vigor;" and that" in
the presence of stronger and healthier thoughts it
even dissolved and disappeared." The quotations are
extracts from reports cf Mr. Tyndall's Manchester
speech published in papers received by tbe last mail.
xou also said that, "lu too many instances bia (Mr.
Tyndall's) words have been echoed by men who are
too vain and self-con ceiled to follow their leader to
the rear." " Evolutionist " is evidently one of this
sort, and seems proud of tbe distinction.

cation addressed to us in Hawaiian :
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
Sir: In the Hawaiian Gazelle of the 80th De
cember, I' observe anJ item respecting the native
newspaper, the Iahui Hawaii, in which ia an asser
tion which is untrue, to the effect that the ycung,
the rising generation of the Hawaiian people, are
growing up in ignorance of religious teachings. I do
not undertake' to write the English Imguage, but I
can read and generally understand it. .1 wiah.to re
ply to this fdlse-witness bearing newspaper the Ga
zelle, and its wrong-bended editor, and to correct the
false impression that our foreign friends may get
therefrom, and therefore I ask you to insert the fol
lowing in your columns, from the Lahui Hawaii:
Mr. Editor In the Hawaiian Gazette is a state
ment that ' the rising generation are growing up in
gnorance of religious teachings.' I distinctly deny
the truth of this statement. Throughout all portions
cf the Kingdom, there are to be found the teachers
of the different denominations of the Christian Re
ligion the Roman Catholic, tbe English Episcopalian,
and the Protestants, or Ccngrcgationalists and
there is no lack cf instruction afforded for the rising
generation. The young were never better provided
than now with religions instruction, and yet the Ga
zelle presumes flippantly to assert the contrary. It
would be well for tbe editor ef that paper to repent
and try to make some amends for this slander against
the nation. . ' , M."
I think, Mr. Editor, that all will concede the jus
tice of the foregoing, and agree with me in condem
ning the reckless and libellous statement of tbe Ga
zette. Hawaii Ponoi.
Honclula, Jan. 7, 1875.
Whaling Bark Florence, which arrived at San,
Frane'rBco on the 12th Nov. from theOcbotsk Sea,
had a terrible experience. Having pnt into a har
bor at Pleasant Island, a number of the natives
were allowed to come on deck. Soon after tbe
vessel again sailed one of tbese natives was found
concealed on board, and as be expressed a desire
to be employed as a sailor be was set to work. He
was found to be very eccentric, but little attention
was paid to bim. One warm day, while a number
of the men were lying in the top gallant forecastle,
Jim- aa the savage had been named, suddenly,
and without the slightest warning or provocation,
drew a knife that bung in one of the men's sheath
and stabbed bim in the abdomen, inflicting a fatal
wound. He then sprang at-another member of
the crew and made a violent lunge at him, but the
assailed seaman leaped aside and escaped with a
six inch rent in bis shirt. A third man was next
attacked r and be soon fell -to tbe deck dead, with
seven terrible stabs in the brea.st, faco and thighs.
After this tbe native Bprang into the forecastle,
where he imagined himself secure from barm. He
fought like a tiger when assailed, but was at last
stabbed to the heart by one of the crew.

the air of an amiable oracle. Tbe Inst subject
that 1)M engaged Ida attention Is that of the adult

universal all over Europe as well as in thm United

that " Mr: Buskin's object in scttlog up tbla abop ;

Thk Latest is Watches. A correspondent of
the London Hornet says: Let me tell you of a
few'new watches which are to be tbe fashion next
year, and vhich I saw, in their maniifactnred and
unmanufactured state, at Geneva not many days
ago. The great1' style of the moment is the
Louis XV. watch, both for ladies and gentlemen.
These, in their ornamentations, are imitated from
those, which -were in favor at the Court of France's
Sardanapalus. They certainly are most exquisite -in
workmanship, and I doubt whether any courtier
of tbe reign of Louis XV. ever. wore so beautiful a
jewel as these watches which are now made. Tbey
find immense favor already In Ruaula, and form a
part of almost every brdaj cooeiZ, aa it ia tbe
custom at St. Petersburg for a fiance to preaent a
watcn to bla fiancee either on or before the wedding
day. I wan much interested in looking at the
rows of Louis XV. wale he, and seven-lire watches
no bigger than an English sixpence, and another
little marvel called tbe ''zodiac," which la tbe last
novelty of the hour, and as I'm told that it baa not
vet made its appearance in England I will give our
ladies a prime by describing it. Firstly, you must
imagine a little jeweled bell, which may be hung
round the neck aa a locket If wfohed. Under the
locket, bangs a crystal globe, I( you wish to see
the hour yoa take tbe bell in your hands, turning
tbe crystal globe upwards ; then tbe globe aUo
turns and discloses the face of tbe watch, which
resembles in hape a "zodiac." according to its
name. It is wound up by . little flower at one
side of the bell covering. - Nothing can be more
perfect nor' prettier, than this little gem, and Its
cost is only 150 francs I X6., , , .
History repeats Itself. In 1840 the Democrats
were swept out of power aa by a whirlwind ; and
yet in 1844 they elected tbeir Presidential candi

the Democrats elected Pierce by tbe electoral voles
of all tbe States except four; but In 1853 tbeir
party began to break up and, narrowly eacapiog
a defeat in 1856. it was scattered to tbe winda in
1860. In 1872 General Grant waa elected by the
electoral votes of all the States except alx, witb
two-thirda of each Mouse of Congress to back him,
and yet we have something very much like the re
