SAT CRD A V
GOSSIP AND CRITIC
Our contributor GuBip met our ether contrib
utor I 'ritic during the week, and tbe conversation
turned upon the events of what is known fts Gen
n.l Meeting Week. Said Gcssip:
You attended the "Tea Party "' at the parlor of
the Fort Street Church, and no doubt found some
rhing to criticise ?
Crtttc No. I was rather pleased, than other
wise, with what I w.w tlerc; but the newhiaper
report of speeches was rather unfair. A ReTcr
end from Kona made an excellent speech wbiefa
was dismissed with an eight line report.
Gossip You mean a native Reverend?
Critic Whj aey native Reverend ! Are they
not all one in the night of the Master ? The
affair was manage! in the interest of mutual good
will and fellowship, and it would have pleased
the native bromer to have seen a lull report of bis
speech as much as it did the foreigner. Our re
porter endeavored to procure the notes of the na
tive, gentlemen wto spoke, but did uut succeed.
Ed. K C. A.J
Gossip V taste at a missionary lea Party are
rather an innovai0u ; uo idea borrowed from the ,
'Critic Tbe iniaeiutiarta hsjja aa g,,, u nghi
to have toasts with tea as the. -world's people to '
have the same with champagne. I rather rte
the idea. How elec could ambitious churchmen '
find a text for a religious-political, or rather, political-religious
Gossip iuu noticed that tbe ''precious
treaty' was introduced.
Critic And why not ? Do you imagine that
there is no connection between sugar and our reli
gion ? It takes no end of dollars to sustain a well
appointed church now-a-days ; what with reserved
seats, parlor and other luxuries.
Gossip You heard the happy allusion to the
delicate tact with which the late mission (not re
ligious) had brought their labor to a successful
issue, without exciting the "apprehensions' of
the natives or wounding the "susceptibilities"
of the foreigners? What do you thiuk about it ?
Critic Yes, it was put in a very felicitious
manner. Of the matter well let me use the
language of the church, to this effect: Let not
him that girdeth ou his harness boast himself as
he that puttcth it off.
Gossip I don't like your vein and so let mc
change the subject to that of the gathering at
Critic Do you meau as reported in the papers ?
Gossip Yes. W by do you make a distinction ?
Critic Because I think that after reading the
account you have the better imptcssion.
iossip You mean of the examination exer
cises, or the evening's entertainment ?
Critic Both. The examination was tlie most
natural and leaf, labored.
Gossip The compositions were good, certaiuly
showing the effect of drill in the use of language
Critic Yes. If a remark might be made, au
criticism, it would be thut the "education of wo
men" was an ambitious theme tor a girl who is
as yet upon the threshold of the temple of learn-
i FBaaW 'rrr , wo mm ill iivy'-l. aJ l.w. ..
Gossip The ' bird's-eye view of a Royal Ball "
Critic Yes. Crisp and pert for a girl just in
her teens ; but
Gossip Well, what ?
Critic My criticism may be compassed in this ;
she had much better have been in bed than at the
Gossip The speeches in answer to the toasts
were certainly good.
Critic The sentiments were jtvell selected and
expressed ; but the speeches were mostly too long.
Gossip The woman's rights idea asserted itself
in the response to tbe toast "co-education of the
Critic If women have anything to say, (when
do they not?) why should they not be heard? Is
the right of speech any more man's than woman 's ?
Gossip Tbe response reads well.
Critic Yes an advocate's plea. The citation
of Adam's and Eve's experience as an example of
the advantage of co-education was hardly a happy
one, when we consider the miserable failure they
made; for which I suffer as an unhappy critic.
Gossip Well ; by her showing and experience
the girls excelled in many of the sports, as well
as studies, and the weather made more difference
in the school attendance of tlie boys than in that
of the girls.
Critic Put a pin in that last fact, j The girls
would ride on horseback from town to Punahou
in weather that daunted the boys. Friend C'ossip,
I have heard more than one mother say, "our
Helen or Jane or Emily, as the case might be, in
jured herself for life by riding at all periods ami
in any weather to Punahou ;" that they would do
differently if they had the experience to go over
again. This simply 6hows that females, in the
transition period from girlhood to womanhood,
need peculiar care and treatment.
Gossip Friend Critic, you had better put a
stop, a full one, just there, or you will be as
prosy and prolix as most other writers and speak
Critic Just as you say. Sound criticism.

St. Albans College The annual rhetorical ex
ercises at this institution on Saturday evening last,
drew a full attendance of parents and others inter
ested. The speaking by the pupils was really excel
lent, and showed careful study aud application under
faithful and intelligent direction. His Excellency
W. L. Green, the Minister of Foreign Relations,
presented the prizes, and made an appropriate ad
dress to the boys.
Base Ball. The second match between the
" Athletes " of this city and the Pentucola's nine,
took place last Saturday afternoon on the plains, at
tracting a large crowd of spectators, and resulted as
before, in a victory for the island boys. The playing
was generally good on both sids, although it should
be mentioned that towards the last the " Athletes,"
feeling assured of beating their opponents, grew
careless, ami wasted their play. Tbe statement by
the Gazette that several of the Pensacota's nine
were suflVrlug ftoui spialucU aucles, UlsJolutcUl au
gers, &C., was a probably a misprint, as it was in
fact the " Athletes " who were suffering under those
disadvantages, in consequence of two days' play in
succession on the 11th and 12th, when they encoun
! tered and vanquished the " Whangdoodles " and the
, Pensacoia's. We hear that the "Athletes" will
i not be allowed to repose long on their laurels, but
; will shortly be challenged to renewed contests.
Heavy Taxation. In very marked contrast to
i the light taxes which we in Hawaii nei have to pay,
j read what is said by Sir George Grey, Superinten
dent of the Province of Auckland, N. Z., in his ad
! dress before the Council. May 10, 1875 : " The in
J habitants of the Province are stated in the last
: census as being 67.450 souls, excluding natives.
This gives a taxation of about 4 12s. a head on
every man, woman and child composing the Euro
pean population, which means that each small farmer
or labourer who has a wife and four children contri
butes about 27 12s. from taxation each year to the
revenues of the Colony. If we consider the condi
tion of a labourer so circumstanced receiving five
shillings a day wages, and working every day in the
year, without one holiday, or one day's sickuess, and
never being out of employment for a single day, he
would then earn 76 in the year. Such income is,
however, reduced at once to about 48 a year; for
the present system of taxation, which is levied
mainly upon the necessaries or comforts of ordinary
life, falls heavily upon the poor."
Fire on Shipboard. At the hour of two o'clock
ou Monday morning last, the fire alarm was struck
for the fifth ward the harbor and the different
companies with their machines were promptly on the
Esplanade, when it was found that the American
clipper ship Emerald was on fire, in the roads.
Boats-crews from the war ships in the port were soon
on board, and at 5 o'clock the ship was towed into
port by the tug-boat P7f , and placed alongside the
Esplanade. From that time until 2 o'clock in tbe
afternoon, at which hour the fire was reported aa
out, the seamen from the men-of-rar, tu hromen
and citiaens generally, worked hard to save the
ship, f Prominent among the workers and animating

Extravagance in Funerals.
The Chicago papers are filled with accounts of
B movement set on foot among the Methodist
clergymen of that city to have u reform in tbe
present extravagant style of funerals. Families
in moderate circumstances are often well-nigh
beggared by tbe expenses of a funeral of one of
their members. Money enough is often spent
upon flowers, carriages, a stylish coffin and trap
pings of woe procured from the undertakers, to
support a family for months, and to no possible
good purpose, either for the living or the dead.
Everybody can see that the fact is so, and that
funeral expenses often bring a family to destitu
tion, temporary, at least, if not for mouths to
gether. And yet the subject of reform in this
respect i6 one of no ordinary difficulty. When a
death occurs in a family the bereaved are not in 3
condition for reflection, or, indeed, for attending
to the funeral arrangenietits. .Some trtend gen
erally takes charge of the melancholy details,
lie wishes to do bis utmost iu showing respect to
the deceased, and fears to be reproached if he
fails to comply with tlw established custom of
profuse expenditure. The occasion does not ad
mit of consultation, nor will any one volunteer at
such a time to offer advice. The result is that
the undertaker has practically control of every
thing, and makes his charges accordingly. Too
many and too costly carriages are often employed,
and other expenses for rowers, mourning dresses
and other intrinsically useless etiings, make a
modern city funeral, iu more senses than one, a
serious thing. A Committee, appointed by the
Chicago Methodist Conference, is expected to re- ;
port upon the subject in a few days and suggest
best method of reform. Certainly the living

Walalua Female SEMiSAn v. This institution held
its annua! examination on the 18th inst. The inte
rior of the old native church was profusely decorated
wtftf evergreens, while the walls were bung with
drawings, maps aud paintings, the handiwork of the
pupils. Over these pictures, on all sides of the
bouse, wc noticed mottos beautifully worked in ever
green; among them tbe following: "Try Again,"
"Never Despair," "Advance," "Faith," "Hope,"
" Charity." At nine o'clock a m., the whole school,
numbering over fifty girls, with their teachers entered
the church, aud the exercises commenced promptly
with singing. During the examination, which occu
pied two sessions of about three hours each, recita
tions were heard in reading, spelling, geography,
mentul and written arithmetic, Bible history and
physiology. 'The pupils acquitted themselves well;
showing patient study on their part, aud careful
teaching on the part of tbe instructorav The facility
and correctness with whiefa the scholars rendered
their recitations, when required to do so, from the
English into the Hawaiian language, and vice versa,
was remarked, and showed a thorough knowledge of
the terms they used. In the evening the pupils ex
hibited tbeir proficiency in singing, speaking and
rehearsals to a very full house. Altogether it was
one of those occasions that Inspire hope for Hawaii
nei. If there is an honorable future for the Hawai
ians, it must come through tbe open door of educa
tion. Long live the Waialaa Seminary and all simi

An idea seems to pervade the community, and the
lawyers are of opinion or at least some of them,
that we are without a divorce law; for what reason
we are unable to understand. The Act relating to
divorce approved the 18th day of July, 1870, pro
vides for divorces on certain grounds, and upon no
other, and also gives exclusive jurisdiction iu such
cases to the Circuit Courts of the District where the
parties last lived together; but on this Island tbe
Supreme Court has jurisdiction ; the Circuit Courts
however cannot act on any libel for divorce unless a
Justice of the Supreme Court is in attendance. Sec
tions 1323. 1324 and 1325 of the Civil Code, which
are expressly repealed by tbe Act of 1870, gave the
grounds on which the divorce could be obtained, the
jurisdiction, and also when the petition should be
denied- Section 12 of the ct of 1870, which re
peals those Sections of the Civil Code, enacts as fol-
lowa: "Sections 1823, 1321 and 1325 of the Civil
Code, together with all acts and parts of Acta author
icing divorce causes to be heard at Chambers, and
all Acts and parts cf Acts Inconsistent herewith, are
repealed." From the wording of this Section, and
also from the Act itself, it seems that the intension of
the Legislature was not directed so much aainat the
law aud grounds provided hy the Civil Code, as
against the jurisdiction of the Courts, or in other
words, more publicity should be given to the proceed
ings than had been given under the Civil Code, as by
it a Justice of the Supreme Court at Chambers had
jurisdiction, which by the Act & 1870 is repealed.
The grounds for divorce by the Act of 1870, it is
true, were enlarged. Chapter 51 of the laws of 1874
repeals the Act of 1870, without expressly re-enacting
Sections ltfcffl, 1324 and 1825 of the Civil Code.
Section 2 of the same Act is as follows : " That an
Act entitled An Act to permit divorce! persons to
marry again,' approved on the 24 day of Mny, A D.
186G. be, and the same is hereby re-enacted." Al
though Section 1 of this Act expressly repeals tb
law of 1870, and does not expressly re-enact Sections
1323, 1324 and 1825 of the Civil Code, yet af?er
reading Section 2 it seems to us tbat it was the in
tention of the Legislature without expressly naming
those Sections, that they should stand and be of the
same force and effect as if no Act repe ding them had
ever been enacted; for if not, why should that Leg
islature have been so particular in re-enacticg the
law of 1866 permitting divorced persona to mirry
again, if it was the Legislature's intention, that no
Irrigation in California
The following aWSjesTiti article oa "Irrigating
Ceoala," which we find io the Saa Fraaclsco Chron-i.-.V,

Ministry and the public generally
" The immediate effect, ofjjtbe present droaght will
be to agitate the question er can struct hag irrigating

-hemes (for the sole benefit cf Use farmers) which
taey expect to be fostered by public pap ," all of
which is to cost tbe farmer nothing, sod the State
nothing, but at the same time will put a few millions
into private pockets. Now. the question arieee. If
their schemes are not going to cost the fanner any
thing, and the State or county governments are not
to be called en, where are they going to get their
lobbying money back ?
" Our honest opinion is that as socn as capitalists
are convinced that California farmers will have to
irrigate, there will be minions of dollars ready to be
invested ia -inch enterprises. But we have bad
enough subsidizing private corporal ions. Xhees cap
italists will of course demand security, and that se
curity will be interest-bearing mortgagee on the
" We have a State Government aad a Stats Treas
ury. If there is no ftaC&Cj in that Treasury, the
State has credit, which ean be loaasd for .he purpose
of constructing water works. None of us would hes
itate to mortgage our lands to tbe 8tate, but we
doubt vt-ry much if a majority of farmers io any
district, with the lessons which they have learned by
bitter experience before them, oould be Induced to
vote a tax and roortgtge to build a diteb, and then
agree to p-y for the use of tbat ditch. The State is
the proper holder and builder of such works. With
a well-governed system of irrigation the product of
all farming lam's would be doubled, and the revenue
to the State would be proportionately increased. If
one acre of land when irrigated will produce as much
as two without it, then the State, except for the fact
tbat the tax would fall unequally on some portions
who have wat.:r or do not need it, could aflord to
build canals, improve rivers and streams and exer
cise general supervision over all tbe water io the
State She has done thiugr. that were less general

of which have prove"! an Injury. Suppose that tbe
State took this matter in hand, upposo tbat tbe
surveys were made for the main canals and compe

acres and not according to present value. For be it

"The work of constructing these canals could all
be performed by the farmers themselves, and there
would probably be enough rich men who would
rather pay money than work to furnish all material
required. Tbe main expense in constructing canals
of tbis character is the labor, and if tbe 'farmers
could be induced to organize and work In unison,
they could dispense with outside aid altogether.
But there must be some authority, for there is more

A Feasible Route Disoovered Across tbe
The United States Surveying Expedition, io charge
of Commander E. P. Lull, sent out in January last
to determine tbe feasibility of an inter-oceanic canal
from Aspinwall to Panama, arrived io tbis elty yes
terday on the steamer Jlcupulco. Assuredly no
work of the kind instituted under the auspices of
the Oovernment has ever been executed with greater
rapidity and thoroughness.
The survey of tbe Nicaragua route and its minute
inspection last year by competent engineers, under
the auspices of the Interoceaalc Canal Commis
sioners, have dissipated all doubts as to its feasibi
lity The fact has been established tbat a ship tonal
can be constructed from Grey town on tbe Atlantic to
Brito on the Pacific, aud the question tbat wi 1 arise
is whether the route recently surveyed can be made
more practicable and at less cost, and whether its
situation would present greater advaotages to the
commercial world at large. The Aspiawall-Paoama
line has certainly the merit of being much shorter,
for while that by way of Nicaragua is 181 miles iu
length, including 62 miles of actual canal, tbe other
would be only 41 miles from ocean to ocean. It
would perhaps be premature at this stage to state
with certainty which would be tbe better line, for
the reason that though we are in possession of all
tbe estimates of tbe Nicaragua survey, for they have
been already made out with great care and accuracy,

Oaa only, at tbe present tin e, be ronghly gueased
at, and cannot, therefore, be set forth urfioitely until
all tbe details of the work of computation and allow
ance shall have been completedmatters which will
require much studious calculation. It is known,
however, and admitted tbat the estimates from tbe
recent survey will be roach lower than those for tbe
Nicaragua canal; next, that the Panama line baa
the advantage in point of distance, aod that so far
as has been determined no serious engineering
obstacles :;re encountered on the line. With these
facts in view, therefore, there be no hesitation io
saying that the line just surveyed has everything to
recommend it, and that should tbe proposed cost of
its construction be very much lower than tbat cany
other line yet surveyed the choice would ba in its
favor. This, however, is a matter of conjecture and
must remain so for at least a momh or two, when
the entire official reports of those attached to the ex
pedition will be made known. Whatever roy be tbe
result, however, it is certain that of all the surveys
heretofore made under the auspices of tbe United
States Government the two most worthy of consider.

e-er a cv.al be made the selection will hardly fall
outside of these.
