fact that some Hon. members who have received

A Whole Band is Himself. A Mr. Kohler is ex
pected on the steamer from San Francisco, and may
give us a specimen of his powers. His specialty is
that he plays on a number of musical instruments all
at the same time. Perhaps it would be economy for
our government to try and engage him in the place
of the Hawaiian Band.
From the Coloxies. The City of JS'eio York,
Capt Cavarlj, arrived on Thursday morning, bring
ing Auckland papers to the 10th inet., and Sydney
to the 28th Joly. We glean from them nothing of
special interest. Parliament was in session in both
New Zealand and New South Wales, and the papers
are full of discussions thereon.
Home Again. Among the passengers by the
City of JSTew York on Thursday was the Rer.
B. W. Parker, who now for the first time returns to
the land of his birth since his arrival here as a
Missionary of the A. B. C. T. M. in 1832, a period
of forty-four years. He will probably find men and
things much changed from his earlier recollections
of them, v
Flee at Hilo. At day break on the morning of
the 8th inst., the trash houses on the Spencer plan
tation at Hilo were totally consumed by fire. They
were four in number, and the loss, including fuel.
at estimated is about $2,000. A native employee of
the plantation, who is supposed to have started the
fire, has been arrested and brought to Honolulu to
await bis trial. Gazette.
Kerosene Accident. A native woman was badly
but not fatally burned on Wednesday evening at
Waikiki, by the bursting of a kerosene lamp. It is
a wonder that such accidents so seldom occur, when
we remember the careless and thoughtless habits of
our people, and that kerosene is almost universally
used. The cause of a lamp bursting is the gas.
and this generates most when the lamp is only part
IUI1 ox on.
Mm.e. Jenny Clacs gave her second Concert of
instrumental music on Monday evening, which was
still more of a success than the first. On this last
occasion she was assisted by the well known and
confessedly talented local amateurs, Miss Carrie
Castle, Dr. Hoffmann and Mr. C. Fernet, and Mr.
Schmidt on the cornet. The third of the series is
perhaps to come next week, of which due notice
will be given.
Ancient Immigration to Britain. During the
debate in the Assembly on the Item for the encourage
ment of immigration, an Hon. Noble took occasion
to remark that " the original race that once peopled
England had all become merged and disappeared in
the conglomerate made up of Saxons, Danes and
Normans, that from time to time immigrated into
England, and now formed the powerful English na
tion." Whereupon a Representative inquired,
" and did those ancient Britons appropriate large
sums of money for the encouragement of immigra
tion?" The Tower of London. The Rev. Charles Clark,
a celebrated Australian lecturer, arrived on the
steamer from the Colonies on Wednesday morning,
en route for California and the East. He gave one
lecture on Thursday evening at the Hawaiian
Theatre, to only a fair bouse, owing to the short
notice and a shower of rain which came up just
at nightfall. The subject was the "Tower of
London," which was handled in a manner that
shewed thorough study of history, while it exhibited
in a striking manner Mr. Clark's remarkable talent
as a public speaker. He riveted the attention of
his audience for an hour and a half, and kept them
vibrating between tears at his pathos and broad
grins at bis wit and humor.
The Silver Problem.
The A Ita of July 20, has the following on this
" The conviction is strongly gaining ground that
the silver problem will continue to puzzle us until
it is fcolved and set aright by the natural laws of
trade and the course of current events, and that all
the legislation upon the subject, or such as we are
likely to have, will not of itself afford the relief so
much desired. In the retail trades particularly,
will it be found that any attempt to settle the
difficulty by arbitrary rules will only increase the
same. If it is determined to establish a gold basis
for goods sold by retail it will undoubtedly be found
to the interest of enough of those who may enter
into such an agreement to break through the same,
thus upsetting the calculations and proving a detri
ment to others. To the majority of customers dis
counting silver payments would appear extortionate,
whereas by adding the discount, or a part thereof,
to the actual gold prices, would really pass un
noticed, or if explained, would be regarded as a
purely legitimate transaction. It is quite evident
that the efforts to enforce a settlement of the exist
ing silver difficulty, as applied to general business,
are increaslcg the profits of the money changers.
Through agitation of the subject it has now become
quite common for dues of all kinds to be exacted ia
whole or in part gold. Just as this disposition
increases so will the money shavers grow fat on th
limited earnings of the middle classes, and the
mall trades continue to be embarrscsei."
Training Ships for Seamen.
Almost any one who in years past, say 20 or 25
yean ago, came ia eontacl with sailors afloat or
asborw. sou! vividly trinrmbtr bow litt'e waa
thought of poor Jack and bow little poor Jack
thought of bim-H. CVmiog on board in oni sea

boy. bom and brought up or rattrr dragged up In

and In rosny instancr runaway from UI-iim or
Mai ration at home-, lo which no lie ot affection ie
ca!lHl bira ia alter life, bis Srt entrance upon the
stage r-1 active life and bis first introduction to Ifce
active bnsineas of lite, was generally a cloa ac
quaintance with a rope end. and ihe rope end
fulfilled for bim the duties of father, mother and
instructor, until be coold splice a rope and fcaJ
mastered an able seaman's duties. The Toysge
ended, he spent the earnings of bis bard life in low
pleasures and ia the filthy dens of the port, lo ship
again when money was vanished for another voy
age. He was deprived and shut out from all edu
cation; his examples were the lives ol ahipmates
older than be in years and older alo in vice and
brutishness ; in fact most sailors of ihos earlier
days were merely the brute instruments for work
ing a vesM and considered as such only, and if
once in a white one of their number did rle above
the forecastle it was by some superior energy and
what might be called luck." Cut better daya
were in store for poor Jack, and aa the world ad
vanced in arts and science it also advanced in
philanthropy, and the life of the useful but till
now neglected sailor received a share of sympathy.
The English navy as well as merchant marine is
manned in these days, as regards the forecastle,
one half by foreigners to one half of British born
subjects, and the generally superior education of
those sailors which come from countries where
education is compulsory cannot belp being noticed,
as their superior education makes them not only
better men but also better and more trustworthy
Mr. John Burns, a Scotchman and large ship
owner, noticing this fact on bis own ships, bas
taken this matter up with an energy that at last
bids fair to be crowned with success in England,
and opens to the sailor on training ships opportu
nities for acquiring not only a good education but
the bias of moral lives. Mr. Burns took up this
matter so pertinently in a speech delivered at
Glasgow, that at once an interest was awakened
not only by the ship-owners but also by the au
thorities of the navy. Said be : "As nearly all
the foreigners on board of our ships are able
bodied seamen in our forecastles in the proportion
of half foreign and one half British, I should like
to know where the country would be In the event
of a war breaking out, and as compulsory appren
ticeship cannot be restored I suggest training
ships." This was the first blast of the trumpet
that started the Admiralty, the ship-owners and la
fact all England, and as masters of vessels pre
ferred to have good seamen on board their ships
to training hoodlums into sailors themselves, the
subject of training ships was taken op and com
mented upon by the Timet, and other leading jour
nals in England and Scotland. The object of
training ships was to induce boys of a better class
and from iuland towns and villages, and who with
ao intuitive love for a sea life desired to enter the
merchant service, but were restrained from doing
so by guardians or parents on account of the low
standard prevalent in forecastle life, to enter train
ing ships which should afford them Inducements
and facilities toward the acquiring and following
of an honorable profession.
The subject of training ships was successful
ly advocated by Captain Espinasse, formerly
of ihe British navy but then residing in San
Francisco. Tte authorities took much interest
in the subject, considering a training ship as an
Institution similar to a bouse of correction, and the
Legislature passed an act to establish and maintain
a training ship at San Francisco, to which boys
under 18 years of age would be sentenced to serve
out their term of imprisonment. But this was soon
changed by act of Congress June 20, 1874, by
which the Secretary of the Navy was authorized to
furnish a vessel with charts, books, etc., on the ap
plication in writing of the governor of a state, and
the President could appoint naval officers as su
perintendents ; but It was positively prohibited to
receive on the training ships boys sentenced to
punishment or in commutation of punishment.
This had the effect to call forth from the Legisla
ture of California another act corresponding with
the views of Congress, so that the training ship is
in reality now a practical naval school, In which
boys from 14 to 18 are enlisted and receive the
best education and a thorough training as sailors,
to be fitted to become not only ornaments in the ma
rine but well educated and respectable members
of society. For some time the training ship com
mittee of the Board of Supervisors bad difficulty in
procuring a ship, and some time was spent about
the fitness or unfitness of the California, then at
Mare Island, when Captain Glass received the ap
pointment as commander of the San Francisco
training ship and soon energetically cut the Gor-
di.tn knot by choosing the Jameatoun ; and as far
as we are capable of judging In the matter, no
vessel could have been chosen more suitable for
the purpose of a naval school. The ship is roomy
and well ventilated, and although the dav on
which we visited her was exceedingly bot, under
the awning on deqk and in the between-deck it
was so cool and pleasant, that had we been only
forty years younger we might have had a notion to
become ourselves one of that young and smart
looking set of sailor-boys that were about us, and
enjoyed the training of the captain, who is the life
and soul cf an institution that must become of in
calculable benefit.' The afternoon watch off duty
receives lessons in reading, writing, arithmetic,
geography, ana in tact an me branches or a com
mon English education, and several already ad
vanced in arithmetic are taught navigation and the
use of the instruments, and give great satisfaction.
In the between-decks a row of tables serve as din
ing tables or school tables, and at night are stow
ed away overhead and hammocks take their places.
In watches on duty the boys learn musket and or
dinance exercise, fencing, cooking, and In fact all
and every business which a thorough mart-of-wars
man or sailor of the merchant service needs, even
to mending of clothes. We might say much more
about the Jamestown, but space forbids.
v Hawaiian Reciprocity.
Friends of the Hawaiian treaty are beginning to
be discouraged at the prospect of final action by
the United States Senate this session. It will be
remembered that this treaty was arranged between
the" high contracting powers over a year ago. As
the revenue was affected it bad to go to the House
for its concurrence. There it was kicked about for
months, and at last was approved and sent to the
Senate for finishing touches. As the vote In the
Senate a year ago was very procounced in ita
favor, no fear was felt about its receiving the sanc
tion of Senators the second time ; for it would
hardly do for the honorable gentlemen to stultify
themselves by changing their votes now, especially
as it is known that during the interval powerful
influences have been brought forward to bias tbeir
action. The matter bas been in the Lands of Sen
ator Sargent for three or four weeks, and it Is fear
ed be bas a good motive for not pressing it to a
vote. - The Senator is known to be favorable to the
measure, and probably anticipates tome difficulty
in getting it through successfully at this time. We
think, however, te should wave bis personal feel
ings and snbmit it to a vote, let the result be what
It may. There is less opposition to the treaty ber
than there was a year ago ; at the same time the
friends of the measure are less active. We are sat
isfied that a final decision would be welcome than
anything else. Hawaiian planters have 10,000
kegs sugar ,v San Francifico warehouses, which
they are anxious to dispose of, and 5,000 Ions su
gar at tha islands waiting a market. As soon at

available as Fan Francisco for tie Hawaiian plant

surplus bere forthwith. Tbeie are aeveral vessels
already at Honolulu anxious lo come this way.
The treaty business bas affected tte ti port trade
cf the islands very materially. Ihirlng the quar
