Takes pleasure in cailin? the attention ol the public to this
great enterprise, which brings a library into every man's
household. Tbe American Cyclopaedia is the grandest work
ever published in America; it is itae knowledge of the centuries
boiled down, the essence of all bocks crystallized. It stands
on your shelves ready to anser every conceivable question,
and gives in brief paragraphs the results of other men's years
of toilsome investigation.
In this aee no one has time to groie among the thousand
and one different works for every fact required, even if the
volumes stand on his shelves; while with a Cyclopaedia, the
matter In question is tound at once, digested, condensed,
stripped of all that is irrelevant, and verified by a comparison
of the best authorities. Moreover, this compilaiion hits bea
performed ty special writ.ers. who ate the hiphest authorities
upon the sutjects with wYich they deal; so that this work is
the epitome and ultimatum of all knowledge, and precludes
the necessity of having other books. You are probably spend
ing dollar after dollar for books which are only of limited
scope, whereas the same money expended in the same small
amounts for the American Cycbpfelia, will purchase a library
It is not obligatory to take all the volumes now published
upon the first delivery; a vnlsme miy be delivered once a
month, or once in two months, at the option of the subscriber,
and can be had in Library I eather. hilf Morocco cr Russia
bindings, ranging in price frum $5 50 to $11.00 per volume.
We would a!?o call attention to Bancroft's
Native Races of the Pacific States,
Acknowledged to be the grandest woii of research America
has ever produced, complet-; in five volumes, and will be served
to subscribers at $6.00 per volume in she"p.

A NonLK Steamer Lost. The City of Sm fnm
clsco, belonzing to the P. M. ?. Company and
commanded by Capt. James Waddell. on the pas
sage front Panama towards San Francisco, May
IC, struck on an unknown rock and sunk in C2
minutes. Passengers and crew all saved. The
ship was worth about a million of dollars.
The focrtu ok Jii.y is only about a fortnight
off, and where, let us ask, is the spirit of '75 ?
Or did the Centennial celebration of last year x
hanst all the patriotism ? At leapt there should
be a salute fired; and then there is tbe race-coure
at tbe Park, with all the building?, which we un
derstand are to remain permanently.
Owner Found. Shortly after the appearance
of our paper last Saturday the owner of the
money advertised aa found came to the front,
proved his property, paid charges and received
bis funds. Tbe amount was several hundred
dollars in paper, and tbe owner was a native,
who handsomely rewarded the finder, a foreign
Foreign Ministers. The Alta of the 2Dth May
says : "A Washington correspondent writes that
Minister Boker's displacement from the Russian
mission is Dot attributable to any personal reason
or any official complaint He was assured tbat
there would be a change made in all foreign mis
sions, and, therefore, there could be no exception
in his case."
The Morning Star. Captain Colcord, sailedjtor
Micronesia on tbe 14th instant. Religious services
were held on board previous to ber departure.
The following missionaries for the different islands
of the groups of Micronesii went as passengersj:
Rev. Dr. K. M. Pease and wife ; Mrs. R. W. Logan
and infant; S. P. K. Nawaa, wife and child; ?. P
Kaaia and wife.
A Berlin telegram of April 23rd, says, that
Yakoob Bey, the warlike Khan of Kasbgar, is re
ported to be assembling an army on the Russo
Khokand frontier; and that 84 guns have been sent
to Turkestan from Orenburg; also that strong
infantry reinforcements are on the road. This news
shows that Russia expects some bard fighting among
the conquered Tartars of Central Asia, instead of
entertaining the mad project of an invasion of
India, by the Pamyr Steppe', or on any other side.
. The Ret. John Ioglis has been engaged in
missionary work for five and twenty years in tbe
New Hebrides Islands ; and is now on his return
home to England, having retired, where lie pro
poses to publish a translation of the Old and
New Testaments in the language of those Is
landers. This will be a very interesting Poly
nesian linguistic scriptural labor. Mr. Inglis
was hospitably welcomed at Sydney by the
ladies of the New Hebrides Missionary Associa
tion, at a tea meeting on April 17th, togetber
with bis help-meet, and Rev. .Joseph Cope
land. The " Cortina " is a came known only to a few
Book-worms and Bibliophilists, and is derived from
Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary. During that
King's wars with the Turks in the fifteenth century,
his library was carried off to Constantinople; and
its remains consisting of thirty-five volumes of
illuminated manuscripts, styled the " Cortina,"
were lately sent by the Saltan to the Emperor of
Austria, being entrusted to a deputation of officers,
headed by Taher Bey, tbe Padishah's aide-de-camp;
great excitement, says the Vienna correspondent of
tbe Eattern Budget, was caused in Hungary by
Royal Hawaiian Circus. Mr. Charles Deiby,
the enterprising proprietor of the theatre, has at a
considerable expense and no little personal labor
fitted up a commodious circus tent on tbe Espla
nade, and with a company of riders and gymnasts
opened to a full house on Saturday night last
The performances gave very general satisfaction,
notwithstanding that the horses are new to the
business, having been trained here within a few
weeks. Tbe riding of Mr. Barclay Is very fine.
Tbe performances on the " ladder " by Messrs.
Derby, Causland and Luproil and the triple hori
zontal bar by Luproil and Leotard, were quite
equal to anything of tbe kind ever witnessed here;
and tbe musical trix " by Causland were very
amusing. The company gives another perform
Kawaiahao Semisart. The annual examination
and closing exercises at the Female Hoarding School
of Miss Bingham, took place on the 13th inst., and
are spoken of by those who were present as highly in
teresting and satisfactory in every particular. Miss
Bingham 53 ably aesisted in ber duties by Misses S.
King, E. Napoleon and A. Haina. At tbe conclu
sion of the exercises one of the gradaatiag pupil.
Miss Rboda Kanoa, a daughter cf a late Hawaiian
missionary at Apaiang, was married to a graduate
of Lahainaluna Seminary, the Bev. T. Coan perform
ing the ceremony.
Yesterday occurred the annual examinations of
St. Albans' College at Pauoa, and of the Government
Fort Street School. We bear that at both institu
tions the result was creditable to both teachers and
pupils, and we hope to give particulars in our next.
Masinu a MfLEi Acquaintance. Last Tuesday,
while a lot of mules were being shipped on the
Kllauea for Hawaii, an amusing instance was
given of the faciliiy with which one may make the
acquaintance of this peculiarly original creature.
A native drayman, who was looking on at the
sport of forcing the unwilling animals to embark,
volunteered his assistance, and for a while his
shouts and laughter were uproarious but suddenly
thev ceased. If there is anything that a mule
prides himself on it is the opportuneness ol his
kick. In tbe present instance it came like a clap
of thunder out of a cloudless sky ; the distance
was measured with mathematical exactness, for as
the creature winked its hind legs one of lis heels
struck the unfortunate drayman square under the
chin a blow that sounded like a pistol sbot. " Tbe
subsequent proceedings interested him no more."
and alter beinz lom'domltd for a wtile by his
friends he silently departed, a w iser man than be
was. The wrath of a mule is patient, ond his
vigil long, for be has been known to painfully
construct a good character through several years
for the simple purpose of getting his victim within
Liverpool, May 23ib Ex-President Grant
arrived here to-day. Adam Badeau, United
States Consul general at London, and Vice

cities require for complete civilized life some
thing more than paved and lighted streets,
wharves, sewers, water-works, police, and such
other matters as are of tho fimt reocwity. Men,
women and children need places of open air,
public resort for refreshment and recreation by
the kindly influences of nature.
It is true that Honolulu has not yet grown to
be such a compact and great city as to leave no
accessible open spaces for common resort, as well
a many ample private gardens, nor can we hope
that the extension of tho city will soon take up
the ground to Diamond Head, nevertheless it
seemed to tho members of the Association that
the day bad come for securing a largo public
park for Honolulu. Time is needed to create
the most attractive features of a park. Avenues
of palms mutt be planted by one generation for
In addressing Your Majesty on the behalf of
the Association, I do not fail to remember that
you have been from the beginning a member of
it and a chief promoter of tbe enterprise, tbat
the first suggestion of the project received your
cordial support and that it is by Your Majesty's
gracious gift that these grounds have been
demieed at nominal rent, from the crown domain.
While we arc sensible that we are only at the
beginnings of our work we trust that it baa
nevertheless come to a point when we may pro
perly present it to Your Majesty, lor formal
inauguration as a Park.
In the possibilities of the future we see here
far more than yet meets the eye. The site has
advantages which may bo off.ct against the
lack of certain features of park scenery, such as
variety of surface and running water. We have
overlooking us stern, sentinel Diamond Head, we
have these white-crested billows ever beating on
our margin and no country and no park can
claim through nil tho twelve months sucb a fine
air os comes down to us from the green mount
ains inland. A new road soon to be opened will
make it near and of easy access from the city.
Cottages and marine villas will bring hither in
its season the social life of the town. Here too
may we not hope at some time to see biennial
exhibitions of the agriculture and manufactures,
the improved stock and whatever else the hopeful
era of reciprocity may have to show in this
Kingdom. The earnest wish and sincere inten
tion of tho gentlemen of the Association is that
this place may always be kept free from every
thing which ehall render it unworthy of the
gentle lady whoso name it bears, from every
thing which may debar families, children and
quiet peoplo from frequent resort to it. This,
tho Day of the great rounder of Your Majesty's
Throne, is an auspicious day for tbe dedication
to its uses of an institution which is intended for
the public benefit. It has by gracious permis
sion received tho name of the Queen, a musical
and poetical name, which we trust will receive
nothing but honor by its adoption here.
On behalf then of the Association I hereby
present to Your Majesty this Kapiolani Park for
THE ACT OF FORMAL OPENING.
To which His Majo6ty replied :
Ar. President of the Park Association :
I am happy that Kamehamcha Day of this j
year 1877, is to be marked by the dedication of
tbe first public park of the Kingdom.
Certainly no better use can be made of some
portion of our new prosperity than in creating;
on this breezy plain a resort and place of inno-j
ceni reireeumeni tor ait wno wien to leave me
dust of the town streets.
I was greatly struck even in my winter jour
ney in the United Sta:es. with the largo spaces
set apart in and near cities for public grounds
and the care and expense put upon them, and
could well imagine the beautiful appearance they
would present when clothed in their summer
If we cannot vie in expense and in artificial
adornment with tbe parks of Europe and
America, I see yet no reason why we fchould not
undertake to do what is proportionate to our
means. Sot do I fear that the generosity and
taste of this community will fail to accomplish a
most creditable result. What has been done in
the few months tbat our Association has been in
existence, so that to-day we have these commo
dious premises for the celebration of this anni.
versary, that you have been able to make such
a course, such walks and drives and tbe outline
of a future park, when time shall Lave assisted
you, claims my admiration, and gives me assur
ance that we have secured a new feature of
attraction to the capital of my Kingdom.
I trust tbat your hopes may be realized tbat
this may become the site of agricultural and
industrial exhibitions, that it may become the
frequent and general resort of all our citizens
anl visitors, and that we may, erelong, Icag,
6ee a marine suburb on yonder beach.
And now, Mr. President! and gentlemen of the
1 hereby declare this park opened for the uses
and puvjioscs tbat you have expressed, and tbut
it be named Kai iolani Park.
As His Majesty pronounce! the cloning words,
the national ensign was hoisted and the artillery
company in attendance with a Lattery of field
pieces fired a salute of twenty-one guns.
