Decreased. The Gazette inquires where do the
natives get rum so freely ! We ber to inform our
contemporary who boo .. ; . i. ' Jual UWUKened
out of sleep that during two nioaths last past,
drunkenness among natives in this city has very
sensibly decreased ; owing, without doubt, to the
breaking up by the police of certain haunts.

The Annual Teapabty of the Women's Board of
Missions, will be held on Tuesday evening next at the
Fort Street Church, when all interested in the suc
cess of Hawaiian missions and schools will be welcome.
This is a social gathering of native Hawaiian pastors'
school-teachers and others, and foreign ladies and
gentlemen, for the purpose of cultivating acquaint
ance and for social intercourse, and is designed to
bring together the native and foreign elements of the
Schooneb Lost. The schooner Odd Fellow, of the
coasting fleet, belonging to the Messrs Foster, went
ashore on the reef at Waimea, Kauai, on the evening
of May 28. The wind was light at the time, and the
vessel was drifted by the swell on the rocks, and
went to pieces in the surf. The cargo, consisting of
6,500 lbs of wool, 71 tierces of tallow, and 174 bags1
of paddy, together with the vessel, became a total,
loss. The latter was. we understand, partially in-i
sured. The wreck was sold at auction, as it lies, by1
Mr. Adams, and brought, including a boat, $125.
Kamehameha I. Day. Yesterday was observed as
a national holiday, by the firing of a salute and the
display of flags, io commemoration of the first of the
Kamehamehas, whose history proves him to have
been a remarkable man, with perhaps as good a claim
to the title of "great," in his sphere, as an Alex
ander or a Napoleon. Though possessed of physical
strength, mental energy, and a majestic carriage, his
deportment was mild, and he was frank, cheerful, and
generous. To quote from Dibble's History " In
self-defence, more than from a warlike spirit, he was
drawn into a series of battles, first with the chiefs of
his own island, and then with the chiefs of the other
islands; all of which were victorious, and eventuated
in subjecting the whole group of islands to bis sov
SrELLiNQ Matches A writer in the Boston Ad
vertiter remarks that spelling matches must be pro
ductive of much profit to the makers and sellers of
dictionaries, but not to these alone. The whole English-speaking
world will have reason to be grateful
if a few new and elegant words should have been
added to the language With this view be ventures
to offer a short sentence containing a selection of
words some of which cannot be found in any diction
ary, but which are so manifestly ornamented, as well
as expressive of the ideas to be conveyed, that he
cannot doubt that they will le ea-erly adopted by
the promoters of matches as well as by the rakers
and scrapers of lexicons :
' Looking np into his goloptious eyes, she said,
And is it indeed true, Alfred, that our soul, in the
process of transmogrification, explunctifies itself
through the whole ca boodle of eternity ?
Nay, dearest,' replied Alfred, and his counte
nance betrayed an expression of irascification, not to
say disgruntlement, which cavorted over his features
for an instant.
" Our souls cannot become sufficiently matterated
to admit of the necessary spifflication which "
" The sentence was never finished ; for as he spoke
he seated himself upon a chair whose legs had been
exserrated two inches, and he came down unexpect
edly kerchunk. "
Bae Ball was the cue amusement of the day jetv
terdaj, nd the match game between the "Athletes"
and the " Whan gd oodles" attracted numeroas spec
tators. There was some excellent playing, especial!
on the part of the former club, who were the win
ners, sevrinc 14 runs to their oppvnenta 6. We
" learn that their will be a match this afternoon on the
plain, between the " Athletes " aad a club frcm the
Gaxblxx. asp SrxDAY C.vsr-PLAr3a. Nidb
Chinese were caught by the Police a few nights ago
gambling fur mc-tiej, and brought to the Station
House. Thcj all deposited bail, to the amount of $ 10
each, which thej forfeited bj not appearing for trial
when their names commencing with the suggeatiTa
one of Lampoon were called in Court. At one
o'clock cn Sunday morning, ten young natives were
pounced upon bv the Police while cani-plajing in
a house near Kawaiahao Church, and each one was
subsequently mulcted in the sum cf S10. And on
j the same day a party of six or seren foreigners were
caught at the same species of Sabbath breaking, and
bailed themselves at the figure of S10 each which
thev forfeited by not appearing The last one of the
party gave his name aa John Brtt, which was per
haps significant of his condition pecuniarily.
Missionary DirricuLTtEs in Japan. While Japan
is practically open to the labors of Christian mission
aries, and they are evidently making progress there,
yet they have to meet some formidable difficulties.
From an interesting article from one of the mission
aries published in the Htrald for May, we quote the
following : " Our worst heathenism in Japan is not
Confucianism, nor Buddhism, nor Shintooism. but
iufidelity imported from Christian lands. Before
any of the Bible, save three Gospels, is published, in
fidel books are translated ; and books full of objections
to Christianity, some of them truly blasphemous in
their character, are prepared and scattered broadcast
through the land. Add to this the tremendous prej
udice against Christianity excited by the Jesuits,
which this people have inherited, with ever increas
ing bitterness, during three hundred years, and you
may see something of the need we feel of giving our
jouug men a thorough training for the work."
The Royal School The examination of thi8
Government school took place on Wednesday, June
9th. The buildings were beautifully decorated with
fine pictures of His Majesty, the Queen and the
Prince Regent, in the large school house, and u well
decorated picture in the other building. The spell
ing match in Mrs. Kinney's department was well
contested, and we congratulate the little fellow who
carried off the prize, a handsome Bible. All the ex
ercises in this department, considering there are but
two teachers for 120 scholars, passed off remarkably
well. Mr. Mackintosh, Miss Brickwood and Miss
Davis had examinations in reading, Grammar, spell
ing, (some of the words given out would have
frightened the most enthusiastic in this branch)
Geography, English History, arithmetic and algebra,
in all of which branches thorough teaching was
shown. The rhetorical exercises were all excellont.
We particularly noticed "Hatred," (from the Mer
chant of Venice) admirably spoken by a small troy;
"The Whiskers," which was well acted by the one
young lady of the school and a very youthful gentle
man; "The Baron's Inst Banquet," which wc had
thought worn threadbare, so well rendered, it seemed
new; Cassius against Coesar was very fine; the
"Gridiron," surpasses description; "The School
Committee," a laughable piece, where Hawaiian
boys ridicule American "Woman's Rights." The
Kamehameha Hymn closed the exercises. Long live
the Royal School and its pleasant teachers.
Mb. Editor : The last two or three numbeis of
the Islander have reminded me of the nursery
rhymes of my childhood. The dissolving of the
grand array of the best literary talent of the coun
try placed so conspicuously at the head of the
"leader" column, awakens remembrance of the
" five wise men of Gclbam, who went to sea in a
LOWl. The lcugth uf ibsjgt ctuijr (ihv Quibauilies)
and the briefness of the grand display of names,
were probably due to the same cause i. e., want of
strength. There is, however, a sober aspect to the
otherwise ludicrous matter. The Itlandtr was
started, as it was understood, to take higher ground
upon questions concerning the welfare of society
than either of the other papers was willing to take.
It does not pay to act the part of a reformer in our
community a sad admission to make, and a still
more sad commentary upon the moral condition of
our society. Priest or editor who presumes to act
the part of mentor to this money-seeking, pleasure
loving community will find that he has mistaken the
temper of our people, and unless be is of the stuff
of whieh martyrs arc made, he had better move on
to other fields of usefulness.
I sympathize with the gentlemen who undertook
the publication of the hlander; while to the respon
sible editor, who may be Tom, Dick, or Harry, I
would say, remain invisible and unknown but at
the same time he vigilant and undaunted, for in
time you may be able to step forth into a community
J reformed and purified, when to be known will be to
be honored. " lhe best literary talent of the coun
ty try made a mistake in allowing itself to be put
before the community eo prominently. The time is
(not ripe for such a movement. The error only
proves that to be learned is not always to be wise.
This raid upon the vices of society may remind
some of the four-and-twenty tailors who sallied forth
to meet the snail but the parallel may not be good
in all its parts. Hope.
Letter from San Francisco.
San Francisco, Cala., May 17, 1875.
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
A journey by steamer from Honolulu to San Fran
cisco contains within itself vast possibilities.
Given, a good vessel, large, swift, commodious and
well found, and the trip may beone of mere pleasure.
On the contrary, the passenger who finds bim-(or
her-) self cribbed cabined and confined " within the
bulwarks of an insufficient craft, will be very apt to
find fault with every effort that may be made to mit

Those who embarked on the Cyphrenet, on the 4tb
of May, at Honolulu, were forewarned as to short
quarters and were, so to speak, forearmed. All
hoped to find some resting place, and when the
whereabouts cf " the cannibles " on board on the
second day out were hunted up, it was ascertained
that they, as it were, permeated the ship. About
every officer attached to the vessel was seeking his
watch below in improvised beds, hammocks slung
from awning posts, and bunks fitted into the bbttom
of beats, etc.
Of course it was two or three days before all hands
ventured on the quarter-deck ; but, thanks to Nep
tune, that event took place while we were still in
" the trades," and with each night's increasing
moonlight were new scenes of jollity, much dancing,
and not a little flirting.
Dinner, the event of each day, was fairly divided
between those who went down to the " first table "
and those who did not. We had, of course, the usual
number of veteran tourists who rmeered at everything
" fresh " and wholesome ; those who kept themselves
to themselves ; and others who " wanted to know,
you know " all about everything.
Meanwhile the sea remained calm ; tbe nights
were lovely; Capt. Wood very sociable; and fioally
we boiled over iuto private theatricals. No one not
on the ship was admitted, but as those that u-ere
there mustered -KX) strong, we had a by no means
Nearing San Francisco all became excited, and all
persisted in staying on tbe quarter-deck and bridge
during the whole of the last twelve hours, and in
consequence, got their faces well burned for their
pains. With but few exceptions all went to the
" Occidental," and from this most excellent hotel we
take our departure for " the East."
San Francisco is dirty. It is likewise all up hill,
except when you want to rise, aud then your destina
tion is almost invariably at the foot of a declivity.
I judge frcm the way that the wind blows here
that it must be a breety place. Jas; now the street
cars bound for the water front are crowding tbe horses
attached to them under the influence of the wind
at a lively rate. Going tbe other way is like work
ing np to Maui in a schooner with the wind dead
ahead. Yours truly, UaiQ.

the United States toward him and to inform him that

was only three days, during which time our decks
swarmed with natives, and gifts of fruit and live

A. Noble Institution.
EXAMINATION EXERCISES AT MISS BI SOU AM S NATIVE
HAWAIIAN FEM LE SEMINaBT.
On Wednesday the 9th instant, we witnessed the
annual examination of this excelleot native school.
The exercises took place under a spacious marquee,
(constructed we presume out of tbe wings of tbe mis
sionary .Morning Star,) and erected upon the beau
tiful lawn of the Kawaiahao Seminary grounds; and
the ample spread of canvass shaded a large and
choice assemblage of our most respectable society.
We beheld on the dais of exhibition thirty-one Ha
waiian girls, varying in ages from about five to six
teen. Their personal appearance was impressive;
giving evidence in their costume of the utmost neat
ness and cleanliness, and of a superior refined ttste;
and showing forth in their ease of movement and
grace of pose, and in their clear well toned articula
tion of the English language, most interesting evi
dence of a very high degree of culture. And if a
critical eye may have discerned some little deficiency
of expression in a few of these young native faces,
such observation only tended to prove to our minds
that this culture must legit- early, so that its admi
rable influence may be more thoroughly assimilated
to natures liable to be darkened by an ancestral taint
of degrading ignorance. But we saw faces there
among those pupils, presenting a reflex of enlightened
Christian nurture, that would compare favorably
with the best illustrations of scholastic and social dis
cipline in the most advauced countries.
The recitations in various branches of an English
education were very fluent and accompaoiri with
much ease of manner. All did well; but if we were
compelled to ait in judgment upon tbe several elasaea
tbai appeared before us, and to give tbe award of a
competitive examination, we should be inclined to
yield it to a junior class, especial in geography. The
little maidens of five to ten answered very correctly
and promptly. But in other branches, ibeir elder
sisters were admirably proficient. Their dialogues
were rendered with a quiet grace, and with a fluent
voice in a natural tone ; aud it was evident that these
incipient amateurs of the mimic art only needed a
little more instruction aud some accessories of scenic
surroundings to be enabled to illustrate with instruct
ive and entertaining effect the artistic productions of
the most gifted minds.
We were a little startled when exercises in physi
ology were announced, and especially when we saw
half a docen Hawaiian maidens parade before us a
human skull and a lot of human bones. Their exer
cises indicated an intelligent and beneficent knowledge
of this most vital branch of education. Their illus
trations in respect to conditions of atmosphere as
suited to human existence were most simple, and
clear, and admirably executed. Now we presume, it
need not be f. ared, that because Hawaiian girls are
taught the mechanism of the human frame, tbe con
ditions of respiration most favorable to its we'I being,
and certain fundamental principles of hygiene, that
we are to have an accession to our medical faculty of
native doctressea; not so, but ratber we appreciate,
that Hawaiian girls, as well as those of any other
race, being thus instructed in principles, relating to
their physical well-being, will render this knowledge
an additional preservative of the purity of life, which
they derive from the instruction, training, and disci
pline of a fostering institution of virtue.
The Calisthenic exercise at the conclusion were a
happy blending of melody and harmonious action
and movement. Tbe deft manipulations of little
palms; the well drilkd play of supple limbs; tbe
marching and countermarching, and varied serpen
tine evolutions f lines of graceful figures presented
to the gratified sight of the spectators a most charming
kaleidoscope of tasteful, artistic parade, that re
minded us of fine scenic effects in temples of art
abroad. But we were also reminded here by songs
and hymns of praise to an Almighty God and a
Blessed Bedeemer, that we were in the presence of a
band of Christian girls and in a temple devoted to
religion and a pure elevated life.
This school exercise, may be regarded as a fair illus
tration of Christian instruction and culture on these
islands: And if Hawaii has mjcb to lament, this
institution, and, Eome others like it, are blessed boons
to a suffering land sufficient to compensate for many
regrettable declines and losses. Hawaiian are now
reduced to a feeble tribe, but if all were as these little
ones, then might tbe isles lift up their beads proudly
among tbe most honored of the earth. As tbe thirty
thousand souls of ancient educated Athens were of
more consequence to the world th n the hundreds of
millions of barbarous Asia; so may these thirty-one
cultured Christian native girls be esteemed of far
more consequence to Polynesia and to all Le civilized
world than len thousand times the number of heathen
wahines Who shall dubt our asertion, when con
trasting such a scene as this, illustrating purity and
refined womanly taste; with tbe desolating horrors of
the abominable hula? Hawaii may be proud of such
girls. They honor tbe land in tbe eye of intelligent
strangers more than many mighty argosies of pro
duce. They are tie jewels iu which King aud peo
ple should exult; and which will awaken the pro
foundest interest in tbe hearts of thinkers and of
generous souls from abroad. It is most noble to labor
in such a blessed cause. They who do so preserve the
hope of a people; and tbey are most potent instru
mentalities in the hands of Almighty God for tbe re
demption of a race Then many times honored in
the foremost rauks of philmthropy as well as Chris
tianity must be such workers; and all of us who have
at heart the welfare of Hawaii owe a great debt of
gratitude to Miss Bingham, and to her most efficient
co-workers, Miss Ingraham and Miss Mosely.

A Vast Pile.
be Palace Hotel, at San Francisco. In all it want
proportion, may now be conteir-fJUied. Tbe huge
pile ha steadily risen day by dlyJ rTbe careful ob
server could see it grow. Probahsy nothing about It
i more remarkable tban its regular graduated pro
gress. In it management, consummate ability ap
pears to have been manifested from the commenoo
ment. It required sxecutiva uleut of lb first order
to keep such an army of workers employed without a
waste of time and means. Tbe combinations wh eb
were mads again, it at various times wart very for
midable, but tbey bajl to give way (refer an energy
almost phenomenal. The Palace Hotel i probably
tbe largest public esvabTlshment in th world. I
larger tban any hotel in New York, London, or Paris
Tbe Grand Hotel of Pari , after wbieb it interior ar
rangement ha been modelled, has only 730 rooms.
Tbe vast structure dominates tbe whole liy. All the
other buildings are dwarfed by It. When co'splstad,
it will be visible at all points, except where hill in
tervene It will be tbe mot conspicuona object ia
tbe approach to the city by tbe eastern water-front.
It lines of light will be tbe first to catch the eya of

vealed, cbalieoge the earthquakes which, op to a re
cent date, exercised so great an influence upon oar
architecture. It also riaas grandly in dtfi.ncc of
those rules which are supp' sed to govern confi igra
tions. The g.eat fires of Cbicago and Beaton are
generally attributed to tbe height of their buildings.
But the Palace Hotel will not have a tinder boa oa
the top of it consisting of a highly inflammable wooden
Mansard roof. Beaides, tbe floor have bean filled in
with cemeat, and tba partitions are solid aud ea
massive. A fire in it might easily be con fined to tba
room or section in which it originated One thing
only about tbe structure is at variance with tbe canon
of taste Tbe row of bay-window break the tin of
sight too mncb. Th only redeeming feature about
them in an ssstbetic point of view ia their vastneas.
This, io some measure, atones for the rogation of the
rule usual in aacb case. But tbey will fulfill a
hygienic purpose more valuable than any style hav
ing mere effect for it object Tbey will gather la
that genial sun for which all people build in that cli
mate, and diaaeminate it through the apartments.
We refer to tbe enterprise because It is in a sens a
public edifice. It will become one of tbe attraction
of the town. Its growth , if not aa expeditions aa that
of tbe palace in tbe story of Aladdin, has (aen a
wonder to those wbo have witnessed it. The genii
wbo have toiled upon it have been ordinary workmaa,
but tbey have been controlled by a mauagrusant of
