FRIDAY. November 30. is:"
HviNO paued through the period of National Holiday for
I he month, which i.ave interfered not a little in Ihcir influence
ai-on trade, it U fair to look forward to tte coming month as
one of brisker times, wherein the preparations for the holidays
yel to come of j .yoas will and hapry feeling will be f-lt
eten in trade circles. The rarious stores devoted to Novelties,
Toy aud Christmas attractions have opened up their stocks
for the season, apparently early in time fur ci:y selections, but
note too cuch so fur the benefit ot orders or selections for the
other Islands. The Christmas Auction sales a'.JO promise ear
ly and frequent opportunities for parties to make up stocks.
The arrivals daring the past week hare been all from San
Francisco, nt Schr Cassie Hay ward via Lahaina, schr
Mary Ewaa via Huo, and chr Minnehaha, direct. The latter
comes to enter the coasting service here, and is In size and
ppearance very bach like the Haikn packet Wailele.
The departures sicce cur last have been the Jos PeTkins for
Port Gamble, In ballast; the Christina for Callao, and Colum
bia for San Francisco, with their original cargoes, the two lat
ter having completed their repair.
Movements in shipping during the week show activity in the
coasting trade. The schooner Energy, which arrived last
week from Humbchlt, we learn has been purcha.ed by Messrs
T R Foster ic Co., for the Panalun rente and the Minehaha
by A Frank Cooke, at figures said to be $8,000 for the former
sod $7,00) Irr the latter. We learn, incidentally, that the
builder cf the M E Foster has returned to Port I.udlow with
an order to build another vesiel for our inter-island trade.
These, with the steamer f it Capt Hobron, by Tibbets Soren
soo. and the schooner byjlrt. Emraeo, now on the stocks
here will give us a very large and flue fleet of coasters; tut all
cfthoae now in service seem to have no idle time on their
hands, save when wind bound.
Schooner Cassie Haywood sailed to-lay for San Francisco,
taking domestic produce valued at $21,193 S3. Schooner
Mary Swan has been chartered for Flint's Island to load Lrgs
f,r San Francico.
gtramer Zealand La from the Colonies ,r San Francico will
be due here on Tuesday next.
There are no definite advice as to when any vessel may be
locked for from San Francisco, though the schr Widaros was
advertised tjt this port by William, Blanchard Ac Co-, when
the steamer left. Brig W II Meyer would no doubt be laid on
for return, with immediate dispatch, and may be considered
due by the Utter part of next week.

Emancipated Bondsmen of Turkey, and
The horrible atrocities perpetrated by Christiana
in Turkey can never be adequately described by any
human pen ; that cf the recording angel alone has
power to depict them in their true colors in the Book
of Eternal Doom ! Unfortunately, there can be no
grounds to doubt the dreadful accounts which reach
- us from different quarters, on this subject The cor
respondent of the Daily Aeu-s, on the one hand,
and the telegrams of the New York press on the
other, furnish terrible pictures of the brutality both
-of Bulgarians and Russians. It is instructive to
read what those reports relate of Bulgarian and Rus
sian barbarities. The Daily JWws correspondent
"The Bulgarians commenced operations by seizing every
man, woman, and child of the Jewish community aud forcing
them into the synagogue and ita courtyard, which seeics to
bave been fenced off with iron railings. The richest men
amongst them were then summoned by some of the Bulgarians,
and a demand was made lor a large sum of money. Some de
mur naturally arose for the moment, so the Bulgarians hast
ened the decision by firing between the railings into the crowd
ed courtyard, eighteen people being killed at the first discharge.
All the money in the possession of the men was given op then
without further parley, the bodies of the dead being searched
for their contribution. Next a demand was made for the Jew
elry of the women and the girls, and without waiting for its
delivery, the cowardly Bu'ganans ru?hed in amongst the
shriekiug, terrified creatures, tearing off necklaces and brace
lets, rings and ear-pendants, and in many cases facilitating the
operation by cutting off the ears or fingers ol any miserable
woman who could not quickly enough disengage her riogs.
This occurred on a Saturday, and the next day the Bulgarians
devoted a small part to religious observance, and a great part
to getting drunk, doing no active injury to imprisoned Jews,
but positively refusing to allow the dead bodies of those who
had been murdered to be separated frocn the living. On the
Monday morning the synagogue was invaded by crowds of half
drunken ruffians, who seized all the young women and girls
and outraged them in the sacred building, in the presence of
their friends. The elder of the town, Aaram Ben KaneltL, the
richest of the community, saw his two daughters seized in
Ifaeir turn, and prayed that he might be spared the horrible
sight by being killed at once. The response to his prayer was
that two men who were armed with hayforks placed a prong
in each ear, and threatened that if he attempted to turn away
hi head they would thrust them into bis brain. It is declared
that the mtuldeaed father then seized one of the forks, and
thrn.it a prong into his own eyes rather than witness the
shamef jl outrage on bis offspring ; and, as he fell in agony at
I he I ;el of the Bulgarians who had him in charge, they merci
fully ended his torment by prodding him to death with the fork.
Alter a long day'a murder and outrage, the nine hundred were
reduced to less than one-half, all the richest men having been
killed, as also the young women and girls who bad survived
the horrible outrages to which they had been for hours sub
jected. Towards evening the music of an approaching detach
ment of Rossi an Dragoons and Cor sacks waa heard, and the
Bulgarians then ran off, leaving the survivors for a Ume at

SATURDAY. DECEMBER 1.
His Majestv ti e King left town for Kauai,
per schooner Marion, on Tuesday last, to visit
his estates on Kauai, travelling incognito.
On Thursday last, by invitation of His Excel
lency, the American Minister Resident, the Rev.
Dr. Hyde, Superintendent of the Hawaiian. Theo
logical Institute at Honolulu, preached at the
Fort Street Church the Thanksgiving sermon in
honor of the day (November 29th) as recom
mended in the Proclamation cf President Hayes.
There was a large attendance of American citi
zens and others, including Consuls of Foreign
Nations. The singing by the choir was excellent,
the time-honored anthem, "My country, 'tis of
thee !' being joined in heartily by the congrega
tion. The discourse of Dr. Hyde was quite dis
cursive, but abounded in remarkably good points
and occasional bursts of brilliancy in rhetoric,
with apt allusions to current topics. We Bhould
much like to see it in print. We had almost for
gotten to say that the text a mere formula in
these days it seems is to be found in Deutero
nomy, Chap. 8, verse 10 : " When thou ha6t
eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord
thy God for the good land which be hath given
thee." The inference left upon the minds of
most of the hearers of the Reverend Doctor's elo
quent sermon was, that the " good land " was
the Hawaiian Islands, to which he and others
had come, and that the Hawaiian race, dying
by their own fault, (as he said), if they do die,
must give place, by " manifest de6tiny," to
something superior. Except the usual Plymouth
Rock exordium on such occasions, there was not
a bit of Americanism about the whole discourse.
Iast Wednesday was a public holiday, by gov
ernment announcement, and during most of the
day business generally was suspended and shops
closed. There was a salute fired at noon from
the battery on Punchbowl, and the Hawaiian
Guards turned out in fatigue dress, with mus
kets for drill and Held exercise, at Kulaokahua
under command of Major Gulick,and really made
a line soldierlike appearance. These troops,
preceded by the band of the government, direct
ed by Mr. II. Rerger, discoursing mo6t soul-in-epiring
music, marched through the principal
streets to their encampment and target ground
on the plains; returning to the Armory at 5 p.m.
For the refreshment of the memories of old
residents as well as for the information of new
comers, we give herewith the " Declaration " of
the two governments of France and England
thirty-four years ago, which will explain the why
and wherefore that the Hawaiians continue to
observe November 28th, as a holiday. It being
remembered, in the meantime, that in the month
of March, preceding, the government of the
United States had made a declaration virtually
of the 6ame effect :
" Her Majesty, the Queen of the United King
dom of Great Britain and Ireland, and His Majesty
the King of the French, taking into consideration
the existence in the Sandwich Islands of a govern
ment capable of providing for the regularity of its
relations with Foreign Nations, have thought it
right to engage, reciprocally, to consider the Sand
with Islands as an Independent State, and never to
take possession, neither directly or under the title of
Protectorate, or under any other form, of any part
of the Territory of which they are composed.
The undersigned, Her Britannic Majesty's prin
cipal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, and the
Ambassador Extraordinary of His Majesty, the
King of the French, at the Court of London, being
furnished with the necessary powers, hereby de
clare, in consequence, that their said Majesties take
reciprocally that engagement.
In witness whereof, the undersigned have sign
ed the present declaration, and have affixed thereto
the seals of their arms.

THE SUBMARINE CABLE.
In this world, it is an excellent jlan for the
pigmies to offor their concurrence to the giants,
whenever the latter, for their own interests-, un
dertake anything which incidentally benefits the
former. Even though the help be only such as
pigmies can afford, it still flatters the giants to
have the approval of the pigmies. In plain lan
guage, we think that our government ehould
express its willingness without loss of time to
bear a proportional share in the cost of the pro
posed submarine cable between New Zealand and
San Francisco via the " Sandwich Isles." Such
a step may greatly help on the negotiation. To
think that there is even the most remote pros
pect of our having a cable is enough to turn
the head of a cabbage. To intimate to both
the governments of the White House and St.
James' that we are heartily willing to contribute,
as far as our means will allow, towards the
cable scheme, would, we think, be considered a
very handsome act ou our part by those two big
fellows, especially if it came spontaneously and
unexpectedly from us little fellows. Let us
show them that we appreciate their kindness,
although they don't mean it exactly so.
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows was first
planted in these Islands on Dec. 10, 1S4G. by the
institution of Excelsior Lodge. No. 1. It has
grown and thriven, and is now one of the largest
and most prosperous of the societies in Honolulu
which may be propejly styled Friendly So
cieties," its object being declaredly Friendship
and Brotherly Love. The Order owns a fine two
story brick building on Fort street, the upper por
tiou being devoted to Lodge purposes and the
lower let for stores.
On Tuesday evening last, at the regular meeting
of Excelsior Lodge No. 1. a very interesting affair
occurred, being the presentation by Noble Grand
J. S. Guruey. in the n;une of the Brethren, to I). I).
G. S. David Flitner, ol the jurisdiction of the Ha
waiian Islands, with a jewel and insignia. The N.
G. spoke as follows :
Most Worthy list District Deputy Grand Sire;
Brother D. X. Flitner : You have pel -formed your
hist official act. and are now about
active service, to enjoy a rest you :
DEATH OF AN EARLY CONVERT.
Hie uaam testations ot divine mercy are no
where more striking than in the lives of the good.
When instances occur of a long life-time of piety,
closing with the humble hope of a blessed i ram or
tali ty, especially when the departed have lived
in our midst, it may be useful to bring them to
the notice of the community, for the edification
and encouragement of the living. In a country
like this, so recently redeemed from pagan be-
nightment, all good christians must rejoice to find
that there are bright examples of true christian
life to be met with amongst the native population
of these Islands. Such a bright example may be
recorded in the case of a venerable native Hawa
iian woman, who departed this life on Nov. 27 tb,
at Nuuanu Valley. Her name was Julia Kea
loha ; she had been a widow for the last twenty
seven years, and she is supposed to have been in
the eightieth year of her age at the time of her
demise. She was born at Hamakua, on the Is
land of Hawaii, in the year 1798, as far as the
date can be ascertained. When thirty years of
age, she became a member of the Mission Church
of Lahaina, only a few years after the arrival of
the first christian missionaries at these Islands
During half a century 6he continued a worthy
member of the church ; and she had the special
privilege to be engaged for one half of her long
life-time, in the same missionary family, that of
the Rev. D. Baldwin. Her love of prayer and
her exemplary conduct edified all those who knew
her, and for this reason she was greatly beloved
by her pious Hawaiian brethren and 6i6ters.
During the whole course of fifty years, from her
first admission to church-membership down to
her dying hour, never was there heard even one
word of accusation or suspicion against her spot
less christian reputation. Her death was like
her life, holy and peaceful. She has gone to re
ceive her eternal reward with the hope of a true
Christian and a good and faithful servant of the
Lord. To firm believers in the religion of the
Christ, it must be both edifying and consoling to
read the simple narrative of the earthly career of
this poor old Hawaiian woman, a contemporary
of the great pagan conqueror Kamehameha, and
an eye-witness of the arrival of the first Christian
Missionaries upon those then heathen shores,
who occupied for fifty years the very holiest place
in the fold of the Church, unnoticed by the mul
titude blindly bent upon worldly vanities, while
she sought alone to lay up treasures incorrupti
ble and eternal. Her edifying life and holy end
may well claim a serious thought even from the
most frivolous and worldly-minded, and it is a
pleasing duty for us to record this bright exam
ple of a truly christian and virtuous life how
ever lowly amongst the converted women of the
once pagan and benighted Hawaii nei. There
are but few left of her Eort. She

Your dutii s have been arduous in the extreme :
i but we leel that in the discharge of your duties
you have been just and impartial. Brother, it
gives me pleasure to address you with a few words
on this occasion in behalf of our Brethren in this
jurisdiction. 1 can assure yon we have always ap
preciated your valuable services, and as you are
about to retire, it gives us pleasure to inform you
of that fact. Brother, I would ask you this even
ing to turn with us, to look at this document
at my back. Its looks are ancient. I see enrolled
thereon the names of Brothers Flitner, Bartow and
Parke. We look upon you as the Fathers of our
Order in this jurisdiction.
You have worked your way step by step to
office, the highest that can be obtained outside of
the Grand Lodge. Your first exalted position was
that of Vice Grand of this Lodge ; from that to
Noble Grand ; and then to Past Grand. In view
of this fact. I am iustrcted by the Brethren of our
Order of this jurisdiction to present you with this
beautiful jewel, the emblem of a Past Grand ; you
did not stop here. Your course was still onward aud
upward in the higher branch of the Order. You at
tained the rank ot High Priest. Chief Patriarch and
Past Chief Patriarch, and from that to D. D. G. Sire;
and now, under the same instructions, I present you
with this magnificent Scarf and Jewel, the emblems
of a Past C. P. Wear them Brother, and wear
them proudly. They are tokens of esteem from
your brethren. May your conduct always be that
of a true Odd Fellow ; that you may never tarnish
their lustre ; and when at last you feel that the
weight ot years are iion you, and you are sum
moned to enter the Great Grand Lodge above, and
stand in the presence of our Great Grand Srie of
the universe, may your jewels be even more bril
liant than these."
Bro. Flitner responded in a very feeling and ap
propriate manner. He is succeeded in the exalt
ed office of D. D. G. S. of the Order in these Islands
by P. D. D. G. S., W. C. Parke.

The " DimcrLTt" Complicated. Feople who
talk of a Russian conquest of Stambool, seem to
take it for granted" that the " Eastern Difficulty"
will be thereby definitely settled. Now, in reality,
the " difficulty" would then begin in earnest. For
the " difficulty" i3 not the ownership of Stambool,
so much as the mastery of the Straits of the Bosp
horua and Dardanelles. Even supposing that the
Turk had to decamp from Europe, he would still
hold his ground on the Asiatic banks of those two
Straits. His forts would still command their pas
sige. Russian war-steamers passing in and out
would be at the mercy of their guns. So that even
with the Russian conquest of Stambool the " Eastern
Difficulty" as it ig called, may be said to hare
only assumed a new phase. Once in Stambool, the
Russian Czar would immediately see the necessity
of taking the Asiatic banks of both straits, as well
and thus the Eastern Difficulty", would become
eren etill more serious for England, with Russia
taking a foot-hold on Asia Minor.
" Gold ! Gold ! in all ages the curse of man

on this Island. AVe don't believe it, and sincerely
hope it is not true, lor we believe that no worse
curse could befall the country or people than the
discovery here of the ' plague of gold."
