Concert. A Concert will be given this evening
at Kaumakapili Church by the Choir in aid of the
Building Fund to rebuild the church. There are
some sweet voices in the Choir of this church, and
those who attend will hear some excellent 6inging,
besides helping the congregation in their laudable
Moke New Stock. Mr. James Campbell, who
with his lady returned on Tuesday last from a trip
to Sydney, brought two One roadsters, a young
racing horse, and a Shetland pony. In our notice
last week of Col. Allen's importation of Jersey
Cattle, we omitted to mention that they were from
the well known extensive ranch of Mr. A. Mail
Han, at San Rafael, Marin Co.. California.

Fair in aid of their funds, on Saturday, June 1.
As the object for which the Society is organized is
a good one, and which it carries out as far as its

it is to be hoped that their appeal will meet a
generous response from the public. The fair will
be held on the grounds of Aliiolani Hale, King et.

friends will enjoy their concerts. Their last
was on Saturday evening, when they gave proof
that they are improving fast. Mr. Ltrproil's won
derful trained dogs were a marked feature of
New Idea. A little boy of six, lor whom the
genus Fulex have a strong predilection, saw a
woman the other day killing fleas (which fhe
picked off a dog) by sudden incisor compression.
After watching the process with a good deal of in
terest, he said to his father : ' I know how it is
the leprosy spreads so; the fleas suck blood from
sick people, then get on the dogs and the well peo
ple kill them." Another new idea is that raonqui
tos may carry the poison from one person to
Amateur Dramatic Association. The members
of this Association have organized with the following
efficient corps of officers :

Nominations. At a special meeting of Mechanic
Engine Co. No. 2, held oij Wednesday evening last,
the following gentlemen were nominated as Officers
of the Honolulu Fire Department for the coming
year, the election taking place on the first Monday
in June :
For Chief Engineer G. Lucas,
" 1st Asst. " J. Nott,
" 2d " " 8. B. Dole.
Resolutions were passed in approval of their re
lations with the retiring Chief, Mr. J. S. Lemon, who
positively declines a re-nomination.
On Monday next. Honolulu No. 1, will also hold a
meeting for the same purpose.
Bcbsiso Fluids. The kerosene oils heretofore
imported into this Kingdom were undoubtedly quite
pure and unadulterated. Everyone knows, however,
that accidents are much more frequent now than in
former years, indicating something wrong at the
sources from which we are now supplied. We do
not believe that our local dealers tamper with the
article while in their warehouses. We would sug
gest that some regulation ensuring the safety of ths
consumer be authorized by act of the Legislature,
which might be done by providing for an inspector
whose duty it shall be to test all burning fluids im
ported for general use, and that none be sold without
his stamp, under heavy penalties. Where protec
tion to life and property is concerned, a small ap
propriation of public money should not be refused.
Remember the great fire of Chicago !
Larcext and Fokoert. Several months since
a money order on a firm in this city from a planta
tion on Maui for $10 was lost. The loser gave
notice of the fact in his own immediate neighbor
hood, but did not advertise it in the papers here.
Subsequently a new order was issued, and duly
paid, the payees being duly notified of the loss of
the first. Some weeks after a native purchased a
bill of goods in a etore on Nuuanu street, to the
amount of some sixteen dollars and tendered the
original order above referred to In payment. The
storekeeper being ignorant of the circumstances
which we have here related, cashed the order and
the man went away with his coin 8124. A day
or two after the order was presented to the Orm
on which it was drawn, whereupon the facts came
out. The case was put into the hands of the Po
lice, and after somewhat of a search the guilty
party was found at liana, Maui, and he was ar
rested. It appears that he forged the endorsement
on the back of the order, after stealing it from its
owner. In the several instances which have re
cently occurred of forged or stolen money orders,
about all the parties implicated have been arrested
and held for trial.
The Kilauea Hou. This beautiful specimen of
Hawaiian enterprise and skill (which we particu
larly described when she was launched a short
time since by Mepsrs. Tibbitts & Sorenson) made
her Grst and trial trip outside the harbor on Satur
day morning last. At her main mast head was a
beautiful "burgee" with her name a present
from P. C. Jones. Esq. and lady, of this city.
Among the invited guests on board were His
Majesty the King and suite and a number of mem
bers of the Legislative Assembly. Under sail and
steam she proceeded eeveral miles beyond Dia
mond Head, making from 8 to 10 knots. Every
thing about the vessel worked admirably, and she
will prove herself fast, and an extremely comfort
able sea-boat. A sumptuous lunch was spread in
the handsome cabin, (which has sleeping accom
modations for 20 passengers) and success was
drunk to the Kilauea Hou. coupled with the health
and three cheers for her enterprising owner, Capt.
T. II. Hobron. She is intended especially for the
East Maui (Kahului) route, and left for that port
on Monday last at 4 p. m.. arriving at Kahului at
about 8 o'clock on Tuesday morning. Leaving
tht-.-e at 5 p. m. on Wedoesday, she arrived here
at 6 a. M. on Thnrsday. and at 4 P. M. the same day
sailed for ports on Kauai, from whence she may
be expected to-morrow morning. When to the
other qualifications of the new steamer it is added
that she is commanded by Captain Lorenzo Mar
chant, whose reputation is A 1 iu these islands as
a thorough seaman, and a gentlemanly commander,
and who u perfectly familiar with every inch of
our coasts from Hawaii to Nihau it. is safe to say
that the Kilauea Hou is destined to become ft fav
orite with the traveling public.

was charged with the murder of a boy named
Poai, the prisoner's grand child, about two years
of age. in the District of Kau, on the 2d day of

child set Ore to the prisoner's house, while playing
with matches, and the body was found lying on Its
back in the ruins of the house, the feet and hands
being burnt off and a wound. alleged to have
been caused by the prisoner striking the child's
head against a stone, in the back of the head,
from which the brains oozed. A witness who was
present at the time of the alleged murder was
called. He had previously sworn at the examina
tion at the District Court, that he had seen the
prisoner beat the child with the stone, and he ran
away, being afraid. Traces of blood were found
from a large stone to the corner of the house near
where the body was discovered. Rut tho w itness

ulleged that he had been induced to make it in or
der to be discharged from custody, on suspicion of
having committed the crime. At twelve o'clock
the Court took a recess and on resuming, Mr. Pres
ton stated that he could not produce any further
evidence which would strengthen the case for the
prosecution, and he therefore asked permission to
enter a nolle prosequi; but it was objected to by

verdict of acquittal, which being conceded, the
Court directed the jury to Cnd a verdict ot not
guilty, which they did, and the prisoner was dis
charged. Mr. J. M. Davidson for the defense.

receipt of which he married a second time. The
defendant's second marriage took place in March,
1874, and he admitted having seen his wife in
1871 or 1872. At the close of the defendant's
case, Mr. Preston submitted to the Court that even
supposing the defendant's statements to be true,
there was no legal defense, as the defendant
knew his wife was alive within four years of the
second marriage, to which proposition the Court
assented, whereupon the defendant withdrew his
plea and pleaded guilty. Mr. Preston said that
under the circumstances, be would not uiU for

better appreciation of the merits of the Royal
Hawaiian Band "were a sprinkling of American
and Hawaiian airs, and some of the ballad
musio of Scotland and Ireland, blended with the
ttlectiont of classical music to which the concerts
have hitherto been restricted." The Gazettt'i
correspondent says also that " as the band is sup.

general taste, when that taste is not unreason
able. The writer of (he article in question proves him.

you will never be called upon to praise any "evi

rashly expresses its intention of continuing the

without regard to consequences." "The thing"
moves, but its movements are moat erratic. Why,
it can't give two consecutive sentences in plain and
grammatical English ; and as for its logic, any
amount cf reading fails lo find it. Its columns
abound with crude, incongruous and Laff-formed
sentences. My youngest son, Geordic, Las left Lis
