while on the way to the Lexington Centennial, were
stopped at the entrance of a railway car in Con

positively no free parses being allowed by the uew
Capt. Tl pmax. Friends and acquaintances of this
gentleman, (the leader of the British Transit of

he was detained by illness at Chicago in May, on the
overland journey. He was however recovering, and
would shortly proceed on to New York. .

The Honorable Cilarles R. Bishop and Mrs.
Bisbop embarked on Wednesday last lor tbe United
States, per steamship City of Melbourne, intending
to be absent a year or more, during which they will
visit Europe. His Majesty the King and members
of the Royal Family were present on the dock to

Prompt. By the last mail Bishop & Co. received
a sight draft from the Firemen's Fund Insurance
Company at Ban Francisco, for their share in the
loss by fire of J. R. Williams' sugar mill, on the 6th
of April last. By reference to a card from J. T.
Watcrhouse in another column, it will be seen that
the New Zealand Insurance Company are also prompt
in settling losses.
Summer is fairly upon us, and after tbe cool winter

I Paving the Streets.--"Vie learn that it is pur
posed to pave Kaabumanu street with the coral
stone's from the Nutianu-sireet corner store, just
demolished. Kaabumanu street, although it is the
most frequented by both vehicles and foot passen
gers of any street in town, is generally iu the worst
state of repair. We have not beard how it is in-
tended to lay tbe stones, but bave heard it suggested i
that they should be placed ou their edges, with a j
light covering of earth and blank sand, with well
.ade gutters on each side. Done iu this way. tbe
paving would be likely to last some years.

An Oli Relic Gone. Duriog the past week a
gang of prisoners have been at work tearing down
the old coral-stone building at the corner of Nuuanu
and Queen streets, opposite Nolte's Coffee Shop.
This building was about forty years olJ, having been
built previous to 1840 by the then flourishing firm of
Ladd & Co. After the failure of that house, the
property came into the possession of the Hawaiian
Government, and the building was in the occupancy
of J. B. McClurg & Co. ; and in 184o. Alex. G. Abell,
then American Consul at this port, had his office in
the mauka end of the building, as did his successor,
Joel Turrell. Subsequently it was used as an auc
tion room by A. P. Everett ; and the last use to
which it was put besides storage it was the office
of the eollector of taxes. The lot, from its position
should be a valuable one is a business stand. We
suppose the next building to go will be the old store
bouse next adjoining the above to the Northward,
which, aside from its disreputable appearance of
dilapidations U dangerous to eater.
Concert; bt the Bjisd Bjr an arrangement
maJe aith some of our cilixena, the Bd will here
after play every TliaraJaj evening, at the reeidcoce
of one or other of the rabscribers. The first of thee

DorBLE-B.tKED. It appears by the Court records
that tlicre is a Chinaman in tewn, one Ah Fai, who
is at this moment tbe happy (?) possessor cf two wives.
One of these he married in China and the other
here. Owing to the peculiar condition cf car sta
tutes at present, he can't legally be cut loose from
either, and if he Jives with both he's liable for
bigamy. But be i; liable to another serious troubls.

may complain to the Police Magistrate and have him
arrested for desertion. Ordered to return to No. 2,
he obeys, and No 1 repeats the same operation

From Oregon. CapL Brown, of the . jf. Falk
inburg which arrived from Portland last Saturday,
has furnished us, among other papers, with the
Weekly .Istorian of May 8, from which we learn
that a frightful boiler explosion occurred at Port
land, on the afternoon of the Ttb. " The steamer'
Senator, plying in the line of the Oregon Steamship
Company, Capt. Pan McGill master, soon after leav
ing her berth in Portland for Oregon city, and while
in the act of swinging to make landing at tbe foot
of Alder street, Portland, blew up carrying destruc
tion and death in the fragments of a total wreck,
Thursday afternoon. That several lives were lost is
certain, among them Captain McGill, Joseph D.
Locey, Purser; Jas. Smith, J. Crowly, deck hands;
Geo. Warner fireman : Mr. Beckman, passenger, and
it is thought others. Griff Jones, steward, and
Chas. Grant, cabin boy, fatally injured; Felix Evans
Ml sic i Prospect. The present probabilities are
that during this summer Honolulu will be treated to
a visit from some of the highest vocal and musical
talent of the world. Dr. II. informs us that in the
early part of next month the world-renowned M'lle
lima di Murska, called the " Hungarian Nightin
gale," will probably arrive here en route for Austra
lia, and give one or more concerts. M'lle di Murska
as a prima donna, is classed with Christine Nilsson.
Ten years ago she achieved her great triumph in
London, at Her Majesty's Theatre, in Linda di Cha
mouni. Madame Adelaide Kistori, declared by Jules
Janin, the famous critic, to be the leading trage
dienne of the age since the death of Rachel, is also
shortly to proceed to Australia, and may perhaps
give us an opportunity to near ner.
American Keliee Find. Wo hnve received a
copy of a printed circular addressed to ''Ameri
cans n siding on the Hawaiian Islands," embody
ing an appeal on behalf of this useful association.
It appears that at tbe last annual meeting, only
5303 cl remained in the Treasurer's hands, which
is liable to be soon exhausted. We quote from the
circular: ''It was moved and unanimously car
ried, that the President be requested to draw up a
full statement of the operations of the Association
from its origin, and that the same be published in
a Circular, and sent to every adult American resid
ing on the Hawaiian Islands, accompanied by an
appeal for funds. By examining this Report, it
appe&rs that one half of the Americans residing on
the Islands are not subscribers, neither ever have
.been. Some may claim exemption on account of
inability, but with scores no such excuse could be
offered. The tax is only $12.00 per annum, or
$1.00 per month, and surely there are but few
American residents who are not able to contribute
this annual amount for the benefit of their less for
tunate countrymen. Americans owning property
should remember that the Hawaiian Government
levies no tx upon said property for the support of
pauperB. as is tho case in all other civilized coun
tries. There are many Americans non subscrib
ers to this Relief Fund who would be compelled
to pay a large amount in the shape of a ' Poor Rate
Tax.' if the Pauper Law was in force. Under all
the circumstances, it is perhaps well that no such
law exists, then most surely property-holders and
others ought not to excuse tiiemseives iroin nuer-
ally subscribing for the aid of their countrymen
leas fortunate than themselves.''
A Chinese Missionary. A Christian ChinatnanA
named Sit Moon, recently arrived from San Fran-
cisco, and is laboring among his countrymen here,
under the p.uspices of the Young Men's Christiun
Association. Says the Friend ; " We are most
happy to infbun our readers and the contributors
to the aid of the Yeung Men's Christian Association,
tbat Sit Moon arrived by tbe last steamer from San
Francisco, and has entered most successfully upon
his work among his countrymen in Honolulu. He

has made a most happy impression upon the Cni
nese community. He is an earnest and practical
man, speaks with mnch fluency, and from the atten
tion manifested among his hearers, must greatly in
rest their minds.
We are led thus to look most hopefully upon
this branch of the operations of the Youne Men's
Christian Association. Aa we shall need funds'
to carry it forward, it is to be hoped that all fav-4
orably disposed will passaloug their contributions!
to the treasurer, Mr. C. II. Cooke. Next Sabbath

" After Sit Moon has labored a few weeks in
Honolulu, the Association design sending him
among bis countrymen on tbe other islands. His
labors seem to be most opportune, when taken in
connection with the arrival last week of 114 Chi

upon theeo islands. Others may be expected."
Mk. En tok: I notice in your local items of lastJ
week tba'. it is said " natives can get alchol from
drug store's.' It may be so, but for the 15 years ia
which I have kept a drug store in Honolulu I have
never sold to a native one ounce of alcohol, and
when any family sends a native for tbe article, I
invariably refuse it, unless accompanied with a note
from the party. I am yours, Jcc,

Bad Spelling and Crime.
In an article discussing the influence of orthography
upon crime, the Herald says that he who cannot
spell correctly dare not write plainly, but must use
an affected carelessness to hide a real ignorance.
This is why the majority of people always write
Mississippi with a capital M and a tail of little essesscs
and iseses, like a comet; why nobody writes Cincin
nati or Massachusetts or Tennessee as plainly as we
print them, and why no one can tell in manuscript
whether Mediterranean is written with one or two
t's. The ignorant speller is wrecked upou the mul
titudinous seas, and bad writing is used to make the
green one seem well read. Thus bad spelling leading
directly to chirographics! delitescence, one of the
worst onenses known to any moral code, hypocrisy is
thus made an clement of penmanship. Eut the evil
does not stop here. It parses from the writer to the
reader of the scrawl. Bad writing is productive of
cursing, and who can tell how much Horace Greeley,
Rufus Choate and Colonel Forney, public men of ex
tensive correspondence, have done to make swearing
a national vice? Every letter these great statesmen
wrote went forth as a missionary to promote pro
fanity. Colonel Forney, on the occasion of one of
Mr. Cboate's great speeches, wrote him a compli
mentary letter, in wbich be said in his poetical way,
"You sum an heathen heaven in yourself, and top
high crowned Olympus." Mr. Choate read the
sentence thus : " You seem an heathen in heaven,
you wretch, at top a fly blown bumpus," and in a fit
of anger wrote a most abusive reply which Colonel
Forney still keeps in bis album as a cordial invita
tion to dinner.
The Pensacola at Maui and Hawaii.
Exited Status Snir PrssACout,"
Honolulu. June 4ib, 1876.
Mr. Epitob : As an aecoant of the recent, visit of
this ship to the windward inlands of this group, may
prove of interest to some cf tbe readers of tbe Adver
tiser, I will endeavor briefly to recount the princi
pal incidents connected therewith for tbeir benefit.
Late in the afternoon of ihc 10th of May, the
Pennteola steamed cut of the harbor of Honolulu,
and the following morning dropped her anchor 10
the roads off Lahaina. At half-past one o'clock, 00
the same day. Admiral Almy, accompanied by his
staff, landed and proceeded to pay their reapeets to
His Excellency Ouvernor Kapena, at his private res
idence, where they received a most cordial welcome,
and hospitable euterta'nment The Admiral was
informed by Governor Kapena, tbat tbe people de
sired to tender him a public reception and grand
luau ; and, accordingly, two o'clock in tbe after
noon of Wednesday, was fixed upon as the hour at
wbich it should take place.
At the time appointed the Admiral, with his Staff,
and as many cfSccrs as could be spared from the ship,
again landed, and were received at the wharf by
the Governor's Aide, Mr. Robinsou, who conducted
the party to the private office of the Governor, where
a short time was passed in social intercourse. Thence
they proceeded to the court room in the upper story
of the building, which was filled to its utmost capaci
ty by the populace, with the exception of the spat '1
allotted to the Bench and Bar, which was reserved
for the Hawaiian and American officials. Governor
Kapena presented Admiral Almy to tba audience by
a few well chosen words of introduction, whereupon
Mr. Robinson delivered first in English and then iu
Hawaiian an address of welcome, to which Admiral
The speeches on this occasion having been hereto
fore published, are omitted from the present narra
tive These ceremonials being completed, the Admiral
and his officers were most agreeably entertained for
half-an-hour, by witnessing the novel spectacle of
surf riding, in which wonderful dexterity was exhib
ited by a dozen cr more of rlie i.&tives.
The company than adjourned to a spacious and
tastefully decors.ted lanai, where a most bountiful
feast had been prepared, and to which ample justice
was rendered by two hundred or more guests, who
sat down to partake of it. President Grant was
honored by a toast which wss duly drank, and re
sponded to in a few remarks by the Admiral, who
proposed the health of His Majesty King Kala
kaua. Music was furnished during the afternoon by
the Pentacola't baud.
After leaving the table, the Admiral accompanied
by the Governor and a number of officers, accepted
an invitation from Mr. Turton, of the firm of Camp
bell & Turton, to visit and inspect tbeir large estab
lishment, where the entire process ot the manufacture
of sugar was shown and explained to them. From
the mill the party adjourned to Mr. Turton's resi
dence, and refreshed their drooping energies with
On Thursday His Excellency and Staff, accompa
nied by Mrs. Kapena and a party of ladies and gen
tlemen, visited :he Pensacola, and were entertained
by tbe Admiral.
On Friday morning the anchor wss weighed and
the Pensacola headed for Makena Bay, on the south
west side of Maui, carrying iu addition to her usual
complement, Governor Kapena and Mr. Girvin as
guests. The anchorage was reached in about three
hours, and soon afterward the ship was visited by
Captain Makee, who extended to Admiral Almy, Cap
tain Gherardi and the officers of the ship the hospi
talities of bis elegant and luxurious home. His in
vitation was accepted by the Admiral and several of
the officers, who enjoyed greatly their visit, and re
gretted that necessity limited it to a single day's da
ration. Five o'clock, Saturday afternoon, found the Pen
sacola once more underway, beading for the Island
of Hawaii, but she encountered such strong head
winde and sea, that it was 7 o'clock on Monday
worniug beforo the anchor was dropped in the Ui
bor of Hilo.
The United States Vice Consul, Captain Thomas
Spencer, was soon on board and informed the Admi
ral that the populace desired to tender him a publio
reception, and that it was the wish of the natives to
bring him on shore in their state barges, used only
heretofore by their Majesties and the highest chiefs
of the notion.
Admiral Almy, fully appreciating the high honor
thus conferred upon him, willingly accepted tbe invi
tation, and accordingly atone o'clock, he was waited
upon by a committee, composed of Mr. Severance,
Sheriff of Hawaii, (on the part of the foreign resi
dents) and the son-in-law of Governor Kipt, (on tbe
part of the Hawaiians) and escorted by them, with a
number of officers, to the landing place.
The barges, two in number, were constructed by
two large canoes being securely lashed a aVa ieet
. . . . . . oered by
apart, with a platform erected ...
' . uiatiorm a number of chairs
& Q 8a t wa
ncre placed, and the entire frame work concealed by
vines and flowers. Each barge was pulled or pad
dled by eight natives. To the American officers it
was a most novel but equally agreeable boat ride.
On landing the Admirai and officers were received
by the U. S. Vice-Consul, and by him presented to
His Excellency Gov. Kipi ; precession was formed,
and headed by the Hilo Band, marched first to tbe
town residence of the Vice-Consul, escorted by a
large number of the populace, who evidently extended
a genuine and hearty welcome to their guests.
The streets through wbich the procession passed
were spanned by arches, tastefully and beautifully
decorated with flowers and greens, and surmounted
by such mottoes as, M Welcome to Admiral Almy and
the Officers of the Pensacola;" " Kalakaua end
Grant;" Free Trade and Sailors best Rights;"
" Love to the Nation's Guests."
The gateway of Captain Spencer's residence was
L adorned on the front by the words " God and Coun
try," and on tbe reverse M Aloha Nui."
After a brief resting spell for the sun had shone
with unusual fervor an official visit of courtesy was
paid to His Excellency at the Executive Office, and
then after calling upon Mr. Severance at his resi
dence, the officers returned to their ship, highly
pleased with the welcome extended to them.
The Pensacola remained at Hilo for two weeks,
during which time many of her officers availed them
selves of the opportunity to visit the world-renowned
Crater Kilauea, and also to view the beantiful
Rainbow Falls, and other objects of interest in the
vicinity. On Wednesday May 26ih, Admiral Almy
in response ro tbe solicita'ioa of some of tbe leading
members of the community, attended a public meet
ing held at the Protestant native church, and deliv
ered a brief address to the native population, wbich
was translated, and also supplemented by remarks,
by the Rev. Mr. Coan. Gov. Kipi responded to the
Admiral's address, but tbe purport of his reply wss
lost to the officers through Mr Coan's failure to
During the stay of the ship the Pensacola' '$ baud
played twice a week in the Court House grounds, ap
parently to the great enjoyment of the people.
On Tuesday, June 1st, at 0 o'clock, the last fare
well having been spoken the night before, tbe Pensa
cola steamed out of the harbor of Hilo for Honolulu
direct. Steam was kept up until she came into the
trade winds very light however when the fires
were banked, and the ship stood on her course under
tt wout'j oe unjust to ciosu una saeicu 01 ice
cruise, without acknowledging tte universal cour'esy
and kindness which has been extended to the officers
and men of this ship, and which, have been bestowed
upon tbem, not as individuals alone, but as repre
sentatives of the Government of the United States of
America, thus manifesting a spirit of " Reciprocity,"
not springing from the wri'ten terms of a treaty, but
from the much less guarded and spontaneous dictates
of the human heart.

The spelling match at Music Hall last evenisg be

tbe Institute of Technology, assisted by a few ladles
and some outsider, proved to be 00c of the hardest

good, in fact, that tbe selection of words from the
