inscription Merry Christmaa" and "Aloha ookou," gave
evidence of the cosmopolitan character of the school. The
audience waa composed of many ladies and gentlemen, parent
and friends of the boys, and a good number of natives, men

interest in the proceedings, especially when the applause'
At the appointed time a large number of boys, perhaps 30 to
40, marched into th ball and took their place near a platform
erected at the end of the room on which Bishop Y illia and Mr.
Clark, the teacher, took their aeats near a table loaded with
book all spleudkJiy bound in gorgeous red or blue, and price
were distributed fur good conduct, progresa, elc ettx. while
th good Bishop accompanied every gift with uch a kindly
look, and a few word of praise, that we doubt not that thia to
many proved about the best And most valued prize of all.
After the distribution th platform was cleared and the exer
ciaea of the evening commenced with ainging; recitations and
singing alternating. Specimens of drawing by the boys were
banded around, and we mutt coofesa that some of thoae gave

comes when Die mind fully grasps lit subject and as it were

We must sincerely congratulate tie teacher on th succex

Bishop on the eatabiiahment of a school which in Us cosmo-

their charms in ehow-cases, to the great delight

Once more, the Star of Bethlehem, that stood'
over the rustic stable where the gentle kine were
softly lowing their welcome to the wondrous babe
in the manger 1877 years ago, is bringing
peace on earth, good will to man and salvation
to the world, and sheds its bright lustre over the
same earth as then. But happily its gentle rays
reach farther and farther still, from east to west,
from north to south, and the eighteen hundred
and seventy-eeven years have been as many vast
strides towards the glorious end, when the prom
ise shall be fulfilled and the whole earth be
illuminated by the light that proceeded from that
star. Star of Bethlehem ! Wonderful Star ! that
shone bo brightly when the heavenly hosts eang
" Glory to God in the highest; on earth peace,
good will toward men." Cold and unhappy
indeed the human soul that is not stirred with
the echoes of tho Christmas song of peace !
From ancient times the anniversary of Christ's
birth was celebrated in church and in home by
the early Christians, and from the eecrct recesses
and hiding places of the catacombs of Imperial
Rome, the festival of joy and good will spread in
better timea to every Christian home of every
land to which a ray of the Star of Bethlehem
bad penetrated through the surrounding darkness
and gloom. From England the generous hospi
tality, from Germany the Christmas Tree, were
carried to the New World and from thence again
were brought to the islca of the Pacific, and
with every year these two, hospitality and the
Christmas Tree, are marching onward. As
Christmaa day is peculiarly the occasion for the
expression by Christian men and women of a
feeling of quiet and ' deepfelt joy and thanks
giving, so Christmas and Christmas eve are espe
cially the occasions for imparting joy to the
little ones, whom tho Lord loved bo well. The
twinkling lights adorning the Christmas Tree in
remembrance of the Star of Bethlehem, have
sown many a feed in tender hearts of youth that
have borne fruits of love which never withered
even till life's end. We have seen the white
ha'tred grandsire, surrounded by hia children's
children, sitting in silence in his easy chair, and
with dreamy eyes seeing rise before him from the
misty past the image of his own mother's loved
face, his father's kindly smile, and the Christmas
Tree of his own boyhood in the long ago.
The Christmas Tree, brought over from the
German fatherland, has found and is finding
favor wherever introduced, and we are glad that
it is so. On Christmas eve, the fir trees will
blaze with lights in the huts of the Danish
settlements in ice-bound Greenland ; and under
the tropical skies of Hawaii many a similar tree
will gladden the hearts of the little ones. And
we are glad to note the extension, with every
succeeding year, of the custom of celebrating
Christmas. It ts to us a sign that with the
ermed the civilization of the
heart of peace
and good will also advances.

Mccn has recently been said and printed on

to be desired; but so far there have been but
rare instances in which the necessary enterprise
has been evoked to do anything. We have

eee no reason why, if the matter were properly
taken in hand, there should not shortly be a
flourishing co-operative sugar plantation right
here within a mile or bo of Honolulu. From
Liliha street northward, including Talama and
a part of Kalihi valley, there is quite an area of
rich land now lying unimproved or only parti
ally cultivated, moBtly held in small parcels by
native owners, that under such a system as wc?
have in mind might be made to yield from 150
to 200 tons of eugar per annum. . If the owners
or occupants of the different parcels of land could
bo induced to combine and give guarantees that
each would put in and cultivate a crop of cane,
we are assured that tbe requisite mill and works
would be forthcoming, and a golden harvest
would be the result for all concerned. Here then
is a co-operative, email-farming enterprise,
which it 6trikes us is well worth the immediate
attention of the people of this district. Who will
take the initiative in laying the subject before
the native people ?
Tns cultivation of coffee, for which many loca
lities in the Islands are admirably adapted, has
never been carried on to the extent which might
have been expected, when it is remembered that
the needed outlay for machinery and labor is
very much less than that required for the pro
duction of cither sugar or rice. One cause which
has undoubtedly operated as a serious drawback
to the exteneive cultivation or coSee by foreigners
has been the blight, a species of aphis, which,
making its appearance in 1850, for nearly
twenty years continued to injure the trees and
diminish the production, but which is now less
prevalent than lormerly, and, like that which
once almost ruined Ceylon's coffee production,
will probably disappear entirely. There are at
present no .large plantations, but the district of
Kona, Hawaii beyond question the best dis
trict on the islands for coffee at a certain eleva
tion above the sea, presents almost a continuous
aeries of small patches planted with coffee trees, from
ttbe annual product of which with very little
.labor the native owners gather enough on which
to make a confortable living. The quality of
Eona coffee is quite equal to the beet produced
in any part of the world, but in quantity it falls
very much below what it ehould be.

II. N. GREENWELL,
Care of H. Hackfeld & Co.
Honolulu, December, 1876.
The Collector of the Port of San Francisco,
in the zealous and perhaps proper discharge of
his duty to his own government, has decided that
Hawaiian washed " sugars are refined, and
therefore dutiable. He consequently exacted a
duty of five cents per pound on a shipment from
the Makee Plantation, imported by the California
Refinery, of which Mr. C. Spreckles is President.
The duty was paid under protest, and an appeal
taken to the Secretary of the Treasury. We
append herewith copied of both documents, us
received here by Messrs. II. Hackfeld & Co.,
agents for Mr. Spreckles, who, we are imformed,
intends to carry the question before the Courts
of the United States, should tbe decision of the
Collector be sustained by the government at
Washington. This is the first hitch in the work
ing of the treaty, and demonstrates the impor
tance of our having a Minister Resident at Wash
ington, .for which provision was made by the
lust Legislature, but for which no appointment
has yet been made.
The question now raised hinges entirely upon
the construction to be given to the wording of
the treaty, which in regard to sugar is in these
terms: Muscavado, brown, and all other unre
fined sugar, meaning hereby tbe grades of sugar
heretofore commonly imported from the Hawai
ian Islands, and now known in the markets of
San FranciBco and Portland as Sandwich Island
sugar.' " One would think that this was plain
and unequivocal enough. We make no 6ugar
here that, in the fair and general acceptation of
tho term, can be called refined. Tho higher
grades, 6uch as some of tbe Makee, Wailuku,
Kohala and other brands, which are simply
washed in the centrifugal, with a jet of water,
have been " heretofore commonly imported from
the Hawaiian Islands" into California and Oregon,
and have been and are " known in the markets
as Sandwich Island eugar." In the schedule of
American goods that come in here free of .duty,
occur the words, sugar, refined or unre-
nnea: ' winch are quite specific. It would ap
pear as if, in reading the treaty, the Collector of
San Francisco has fixed bis eye upon the words,
' Muscovado, brown," and concludes that none
other kinds of sugar are meant, notwithstanding
the qualifying words which immediately follow.
We do not anticipate that the Secretary will
confirm the ruling of the Collector ; but in the
event ot such a decision, tbe determination an
nounced by Mr. Spreckles of contesting the ques
tion in the legal tribunals, which will necessari
ly be quite expensive indicates both his confi
dence in tbe correctness o! his position and his
personal interest in the matter.

A Hint for a Pioneer Society.
Ma. Editor : So near the close of another year
thoughts will sometimes involuntarily revert to the
past, and in thus traveling backwards over the last
few years it must strike you as well as others, that
very many of the old familiar faces we were wont to
meet in our daily walks and " near the corner " are
gone, and we shall see them no more. Very many,
perhaps most of them were of the earlier days acd
their heads had grown grey during a long sojourn
on these islands. Most of tbem had come here dur
ing the days of Kaahumanu and Kauikeaouli, and
seen, and lived and had tbeir being in a chrono
logical time which stands in the history of Hawaii
nei as apart from the present as tbe middle ages
from the later centuries.
In other countries that have been settled during
the last century, it has been usual to form pioneer
societies and reunions in which the earlier settlers
and those who laid the first bands on the work of
bringing a new country into the pale of civilization
and the family of nations might meet each other
from time to timo on their journey to the end, ex
change friendly greetings, lenew old friendships and
have friendly chat about the " old lang syne," acd
draw closer the lines tf good will and kindness.
should think that some of our oldest and influ
ential citizens might start such a society composed
of those who landed here, acd made this country
tbeir home during the reign, and before the death of
Kamehameba III, to meet once every year or every
alternate year ' (with their families or without) for
one or two days. Members might pay an annual
contribution of four to five dollars to form a common
fund . under the supervision of presidents, secreta
ries, treasurer, etc Such reunions of old settlers
would not only prove pleasant episodes in their Uvea
but could be but of great advantage. We have his
tories of Hawaii, (perhaps mcjsKtnan needed) but
there are doubtless incidents and phases in the
knowledge of many of the older settlers that would
be valuable matter for the future compiler or a
chronicle. Besides this the meeting of so large a
number of old and experienced citizens would give
fine opportunities to canvass measures of enterprUe,
public benefit and co-operation, and best of all the
friendly meeting of citizens from Hawaii to Niihau
would unite all in closer bonds under the shadow of
love for a common country, and eow the seed of a
more earnest patriotism than has as yet existed.
Mr. Editor, I lay this crude idea before you and
hope that you or some one else better able than my
self may give it further consideration.
