The Court. His Majesty the King eailed for
Kauai by tbe schooner Marion on Thursday last ;
the Queen is in Kona, Hawaii, having recently made
the circuit of that island on horseback. The Queen

The barkentine Discovery, from San Francisco,
is reported as arrived as we go to press, with proba
bly late and important news.
Mr. Armstrong's Lecture. We commend to
the careful attention of our readers the lecture by
Mr Armstrong, which we print in a supplement
with to-day's paper.
Morality. Now that morality is on tbe tapia of
public discussion, our incorrigible printer's devil
wants to know if it is immoral to smuggle either
opium, lace goods, etc. in other words to cheat the
For a Picnic. When you go into the country
for a quiet day's rest, we know of no more tooth
some and economic preparation for a lunch than
Wilson, Marry & Co. 'a cooked corned beef, to be had

Want to be Denuded. Was it Charles Lamb who
said once on a hot August day that he would like to
take of! his flesh and sit in his bones ? It sounds
like him; and we have heard people in Honolulu
express themselves similarly of late.
A little Miss of seven years was asked, dariog

to be Untied In investigating the first
of the cases under the onslaught at the Police Court,
in re morality, counsel for defense raised the tech
nical point that there was really no existing statute
applicable. The magistrate overruled the point,
pro forma, and the result is going to be, some verbal
sparring in the Supreme Court.
Music this Afternoon. The band will play at
Emma Square, commencing at 4 o'clock. Follow

Wanted A License ! We hear that on Thursday
last the news having got circulated of the proposed
raid on unmarried couples, the office of the Chief
Clerk of the Minister of the Interior was besieged
from the early morning hour with eager applicants
for " palapala ae mare," permits to get married.
Under the circumstances, it is to be hoped that the
permits were granted without a too punctilious scru
tiny. All's well that ends well.
A Shark Story. The (Jazellt undertakes to get
off a fish story about " a monster shark," but it is
only pretended that the specimen was sixteen feet in
length, and was killed with a harpoon being, says
the Gazette, " a wonder of the deep !" How little
some people know about the productions of tbe coun

Not Lost. The schooner Luka was not lost at
Wailua, Kauai, as reported by the Gazelle of this

quite unaccountably coming on " boosted " the
schooner up on to the sands on Saturday last, from
which she was got off uninjured on Monday by a
gang or natives under, toe able direction of Uovernor

Is not the Screw too tight T
Me. Editor: Sometimes things go wrong, be
cause a screw is too loose, but may not there be a
fault in some cases, in screwing the machinery too
tight ? Now every passenger arriving from a foreign
land is taxed $2.00. This may be all right, but
suppose a foreigner newly arrived falls sick and is
out of funds, will be be admitted to the Queen's
Hospital ? O, no, unless some one is responsible at
the rate of $1 a day. Now, this appears to be turn
ing the screw rather light. Something must be
done. The calls for aid to assist sick and destitute
strangers, are becoming very frequent. The Gov
ernment or tne irastees or tne Hospital should take
this matter up and consider it.

Mb. Editor : In your paper of the 8th instant,
11. Hart " complains that in my communication.
of the precceding week, referring the Immigrants
by tbe Y. II. Iiiett.waa matter "calculated to
place him in an unfavorable light." This com
plaint has little foundation, unless be furnished
tbe material for the advertisement I quoted, aad
I may be pardoned if my interpretation of the
evident warmth of bis answer is : that " II. Hart "
furnished the warp and perhaps tbe woof of tbe
tissue of falsehood I sought to expose. Ia weighing
"II. Hart" I never supposed hira to be a simple
ton, whatever else I may have believed hiai to be,
consequently I am not surprised at the very re
spectable documentary backing his scheme has.
I have never credited " II. Hart " with caring
whether the immigrant landing on our shores was
from Europe, Asia, America, Africa or the Islands
of the Sea ; but simply looking upon each individ
ual as the probable source from whence he would
obtain a shipping fee, proportioned, as to amount,
to the verdancy or credulity of tbe immigrant.
However, the point in " U. Hart's" communica
tion upon which I take positive issue is this : that
because I am holding a position in a public office
I am therefore bound to stand idly by while M II.
Hart" practices bis cunning arts upon Immigrants;
that my wage, a traction of which H. . Hart "
contributes, is to be considered as a retainer, a
guarantee that I will only criticise favorably, if at
all, questions of public interest.

Maoki Immigrants. We again call the atten
tiou of our government to New Zealand, as a field
whence emigrants male and fiTuali'. of tho native
Maori race, may very likely be induced to come to
settle in these Islands, in tbe midst of their Ha
waiian Kinsfolk, as laborers on our sugar planta
tions. We believe that it would be easy to get
a ship-load of Maoris, men, women and children t
from Wbangarei, Hokianga, and the Bay of
Islands, north of Auckland, where the Maoris are
quite civilized now, probably some chief, with all
his tribe, would volunteer to come and settle here,
if they got a grant of some lands here, and free
passages to these shores.
Tuk July number of the Boston Missionary
Herald has some suggestive remarks upon tbe
' Hawaiian Islands." Tbe writer very truthfully
observes : " Now we have a people there in all
respects ahead of every other native race of
Polynesia : a people that maintain their own
civil, social and religious institutions." This Is
only the naked truth, and the testimony of such
writers is very useful abroad, being calculated to
inspire foreigners with a due appreciation of tbe
civilization and religious progress of the Hawaiian
people. The number for August has some inter
esting information concerning the preaching and
teaching ol the Gospel at Oorfa, in Mesopotamia.

The Taimua and Fiepule, or government party, on

fighting continued for a couple of days, during
which 15 men were killed on tbe side of tbe Tai

Several hundred men of tbe latter party were also
taken prisoners, and the Puletoa were forced ulti
mately to give up their cause. Several chiefs of
the Puletoa took refuge at the British Consulate at
Apia, and, when the last accounts left, 150 armed
men of tbe Taimua and Faipule were beseiging
Mr. Liaidel's house, as he refused to give them up

Scotch News. Rossie Priory, In Perthshire,
Scotland, tbe seat of Lord Kinnaird, bad a narrow
escape from being burned down lately. Tbe
coach-house, stables and clock-tower were much
injured by the fire, and tbe damages are estimated
at 2000. The main buildings fortunately were
saved. In the Priory of St. Serfs Locklevin,
some recent antiquaran researches have led to

Sir Julius Vogel bas written an article in The
Nineteenth Century, advocating tbe Confederation
of the Australasian Colonies of Great Britain.
This measure is part of Lord Carnarvon's grand
scheme for the consolidation of the British Empire.
Already, the British North American Colonies
have been confederated with happy results. The
Confederation of the British South African Colo
nies is, since tbe downfall of tbe Transvaal Repub
lie, in a fair way of being soon accomplished. An
attempt was made last year too by Governor J. P.
Hennessey to bring about the Confederation of the
British West Indian territories, which was tempo
rarily checked by a selfish section of tbe planters
causing some disturbances, but is likely to be
soon brought on again with better chances of suc
cess. In fine the Confederation of the Australasian
Colonies is now on the political tapis. The sup
port of Sir Julius Vogel should be very encourag
ing for Lord Carnarvon, as far as New Zealand is
concerned. His Lordship is unquestionably the
most enlightened Secretary of State for the Colo
nies that Great Britain bas ever before entrusted
with that portfolio. The policy of tbe wbigs bos
been to despise the British Colonies, as not worth
holding. Lord Carnarvon fortunately saw the
question in another light, and bis Lordship's Colo
nial policy has truly saved the British Crown from
tbe danger of the future loss of its colonial pos
session. With two great colonial confederations of
Great Britain to the North East and South West of
our Islands, our position in the Pacific will bo
highly important, at no distant day : and beyond
a doubt we shall have a break station at llono
lulu of a submarine cable bctwoen Australia and
British Columbia, very soon after tbe British North
America Inter-Ocean Electric Telegraph is com
pleted with other advantages of steam communi
cation following tnereon.
Mutual Belief Association.
The frequent recurrence of failures among tbe
Life Insurance Companies of the United States has
induced reflective people to hesitate about adopt
ing that mode, now so precarious, of providing for
their wives and families, npon tbe demise of their
bread-winner. Various other plans have been sug
gested as a substitute for the present system of life
insurance, with more or less weighty claims to
consideration. This matter is of so much impor
tance lor tbe beads of families every where, who
have one or more mouths dependiug upon them for
daily bread, that we propose to make some re
marks upon a scheme of this sort, which bas been
successfully carried out for some years past in Cal
ifornia and which secures a sum of money to tbe
family of eacb deceased member without tbe possi
bility ol any risa irom insolvency, we nave be
fore us the Rules and Regulations of tbe Ham
boldt Bay Mutual Relief Association, incorporated
November 1st. 1872, number of members limited
to 2,000 ; tbe object of this association being to ae
cure pecuniary aid to the families or fi lends of de
ceased members, M'itb only an expense of three to
ten dollars a year, and one dollar on tbe death of
any member." This Association bas its own organ,
Ike Standard, published at Petaluma. Cal., which
furnishes the fullest information on the nature of
the Association in question. Y e may briefly explain
here that eacb member must be of sound bodily
health on loinine. and is obliged to pay yearly, ac
cordinz to aze. a sum of $3 if under thirty and
over eiehteen years s which increases by tl yearly
for every term of five years, over that age up to CO
years, wnicu is luc ouuiiue umii in toe ag oi mem
bers so that any member who Joins between the
ages of 55 and 60 years, pays $10 yearly ; in fine.
all the members pay $1 on tne deatb or any mem
ber. To give an idea of tbe benefit secured by
membership, we may state from a list published by
tbe Standard or at members, aeceaseu since tne
foundation of the Association, six years and a half
ago, that the sum of $35,221 was distributed amongst
their nominees, the largest sum paid $1,090 being
to the heirs of Mary Fitzsimmons, of Etna, Cal.,
who had been a member four years, and during
that period bad paid in all $C2, including $48 paid
upon the death of 48 members, who preceded ber
to tbe grave. Persons who seek more information
on this subject, can see tbe Standard or tbe " Rules
and Regulations" above referred to, Tne Associ
ation in question certainly eoems to afford an oc
casion of making provision for a wife and family,
on the death of thebr bread-winner, without the
risks attending too many dishonest Life Insurance
companies afloat A similar Association in these
Islands, might be found to be rery beneficial, and
we see no reason why it may not be practicable.
