Correction. In our article last week on the lie-
port of the Board of Education, we stated and our
imrjression was obtained from the report itself that
school books were sold by the Board at an advance
on first cost. We are assured, however, that such
is not the case, and that all supplies are furnished
at actual cost. The difference in figures arises from
the fact that large quantities of school books are
ordered from America at one time.

and is deserving of open-handed liberality. Tickets
are placed at fifty cents, and can be had at Whitney

popular airs. The special work of the Hoola
Lahui Assoc'ations is well known in the community
to be of a truly benevolent and most charitable char
acter, and appeals strongly to the hearts of all who
feel for their sick and suffering neighbors. Remem
ber, that charity constitutes a treasure that cannot
be lost, and never fades.

To the Elitor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
Dear Sir : I was pleased to see your interest
ing editorial ou the telephone, and hope that it
will incite your citizens to build telephone lines in
all parts of the city.
If the residents of Nuuanu Valley do not think
best to club together and put tip a substantial line
of poles through town to the Government House,
there is no reason why each should not build bis
own private line. If all work together it will not
be quite so expensive and will be in good shape
and out of everybody's way. but a small line con
necting neighboring houses will cost but little.
Brackets and glass insulators can be obtained in
San Francisco so as to cos-t about 25 cents per set
in Honolulu. These can be attached to houses,
trees or anything that will keep the wire up out of
the way, and as these are plentiful in Honolulu,
poles can be dispensed with. No. 9 wire is the
size usually used, but the larger the better lor the
It is put up by Erst fastening a tie-wire to the
insulator and then stretching the wire up and
twisting the tie-wire around it. Care must be
taken that nothing touches the main wire except
the ingulators any where. If only one wire is
used it must be run into the ground at each end
or fastened to a water pipe. For short distances
it is just as well to use two wires and connect
them together at the enda. I am willing to help
all I can in this matter, so I hope those wigbing
to build lines will .call on me freely tor informa
tion. Yours truly, C. H. Dickey.
Audience at lolani Palace.
On Wednesday last, the 2'Jih inst., His Majesty
the King, formally received Mr. Glade, the German
Consul, and Capt. Paschen and officers of His Impe
rial German Majesty's Frigate Leipzig, which is
cn route to Japan. On being presented to His
Majesty, Capt. Paschen addressed him as follows :
Siiie : The gracious reo-ption which all vt s- ls of Flis Ma
jesty, my sublime Monarch, have met with from Your Maj 'sty,
has made it a double desire to me to vi.-it the In opilabie i-luTes
or the Hawaiian Kit:g.lom cn uy passage to Japan ; and I beg
Y'our Majtsty's gracious I-.ave to express try high satisfaction
to have seen a part of these magnificent Inlands, the I'ar.iJise
of the Pacific Oo. an. The vessels which have been so f . rui
nate as to visit these Islands cannot praise enough the wealth
anil increosing prosperity tf this Kingdom under Your Majes
ty's beneficent reigu; and I beg Yur Maiesty 13 accept the
expression of my own f.-elicgs ia this direction, seeii.g weillli
and proierity spread throughout, anl my countrymen living
in the happiest condition vouchsafed to them under Your
Majesty's Wise aud impartial Government. Sire, I request the
honor to present t Your Majesty, the officers ef His Majesty's
Ship Leipzig at present under my command.
A large number of officers cf noble appearance
were then presented to the King. On conclusion of
that ceremony. His Maje-ty speke as follows :
Captain Pam hkn : I am ha py on this occasion, to 1
fer io yourself and officers of His IiEerial German Majesty's
Ship Leipzig, a hopitable welcome ; and to express my grati
fication at makir,g the acquaintance of so many brave and ac
complished oHiceis of your Euiicmr' Navy.
The German residents in my Kingdom, have always been
law-abiding and helpful of this Nation's interest. I can
count them as friends.
I wish you. Captain, a pleasant voyage to Japan.
After which the King entered into a pleasaut and
familiar conversation with Capt. Taschen and the
members of the Court did the same with the Ger
His Majesty was attended by the Cabinet Minis
ters, Judges of the Supreme Court, many Nobles of
the Kingdom and by others. The occasion was a
very pleasant one.
Firemen, Attention : Firemen will remember
that the Annual Election for Chief Engineer, and
First und Second As.-istauts takes place next Mon
day evening, at 7.J o'clock, at the hall of Mechanic
Engine Co. No. 2. The poll closes at 9 o'clock.
British Benevolent Society. This Society,
which has superseded the St. George's Society, held
its annual meeting last Saturday evening, May 25,
at the Hawaiian Hotel. After business matters were
disposed of, the company sat down to an elegant
dinner, prepared in the usual good style for which
the hotel is noted. This important affair being
properly attended to, the regular toast of the even
ing" Her Majesty Queen Victoria" was given,
the company rising to their feet. Iu proposing the
health of the Queen, the Chairman remarked that
England appeared to prefer Queens to Kings. It
was a notable fact that at three different periods of
history when the country had been called upon to
prepare lor war, the sceptre nad been held, not in
the firm grasp of a King, but by the feeble hand of
woman. Queen x.lizabeth had called upon her
country, with its Cecil, and its Drake, to repel a for
eign invader ; in the reign of Queen Anne the
threatened liberties of Europe were fought for under
Marlborough; and now again the hand of England is
upon the sword. That Eword is yet in its scabbard,
and will only be drawn in a righteous cause; but, if
drawn, it will not be sheathed again until justice has
been dealt. The willing alacrity with which the
British Colonies were obeying a summons to take
measures for the defence of their shores in the event of
impending war, showed that loyalty and patriotism
reigned throughout the great Empire. The toast was
received with loud cheers, and two verses of ' God
Save the Queen" were sung by the company, stand
ing. The Chairman next proposed the health of His
Majesty the King of the Hawaiian Islands, ander
whose friendly rule so many Englishmen had taken up
a permanent, prosperous, and, he hoped, happy, resi
dence received with all the honors. This Society is
one of the most successful in its field of labor of any in
our midst. It does a great deal of good in a quiet way,
as the following summary from the Treasurer's re
port will show: Received from all sources for the
year. 1,792 27; expended for relief and aid of its
beneficiaries (nine men, one woman and one family),
etc , the sum of S'1,015 75, leaving a balance on hand
of $770 52. The Society numbers ninety-nine regu
lar contributing members, and has a small gum of
money out on interest.
CRUISE OF THE" STOEMBIRD."
Our readers will icmemLcr that in August last,
Capt. H. W. Mist was dispatched ly the Hawaiian
G vernment as special Agent of the Board of Immi
gration to the Islands of Polynesia, feT the purpose
of ascertaining if an immigration could be procured
of the inhabitants of these groups who are cf a
cognate race with our own people. Captain Mitt,
in his intercourse with the British Colonial author
ities, received every encouragement in the objects of
his mifsion, and at Sydney procure 1 the schooner
S'.ormbirJ. which, under the command of Captain
Jackson, (a retired inker of the British Navy) was
dispitched ft.'r a cruise on the plan projectel by the
Board cf Immigration. She arrived here on Wednes
day last, with C2 men and 23 women, obtained from
the groups visited. These are mostly young and
all healthy looking people, and very much rrsem
bl'iDg Hawaiians in appearance. We publish here
with in full the interesting account by Capt. Jack
son of his voyage, and heartily congratulate the gov
ernment and the country upon the success cf the
scheme, which now seems to be assured, of obtain
ing a supply of immigrants to astist in repeepling
our waste places, of a race that will undoubtedly
"assimilate" with the natives of the soil.
Our record begins with Saturday last. It will be
remembered that on Thursday the Committee on
Finance discharged their first gun, and landed what
was apparently a bomb-shell into the Ministerial
camp, iu the shape of a report on the accounts of the
several departments of Government. At the request
of the Chairman of the Committee (Hon. Mr. Gib
son), further consideration was postponed uutil Sat
urday. Previous to the debate ou that day, a reso
lution was offered by the Hon. Mr. Malo (Honolulu)
to the effect that the Committee of Investigation to
the leper settlement be empowered to release all per
sons not found to be lepers. Amended by including
the Board of Health to act in conjunction with the
Committee. (When the Committee sailed for Molokai
on Monday, but one member of the Board of Health
accompanied them Dr. F. B. Hutchinson.) After
some discussion, in which the Hon. Messrs. Smith
and Gibson aud the Minister of the Interior took
part, the resolution as amended was agreed to.
Then came the report of the Finance Committee, as
the special order of the day in Committee of the
Whole. Lengthy speeches were made in support of
the report by Hon. Messrs. Gibson, Kaai, and Bick
erton, and in opposition by Hon. Mr. Smith, and the
.Minister ot Finance, when the debate was adjourned
until Monday. I On motion, a Committee of Experts,
to examine thoiccounts of the Interior and Attorney
General's Departments, was appointed, consisting of
Mr. Jos. O. Carter on behalf of the Assembly and
Mr. John II. Paty on that of the Ministers, these two
appointing Mr. E. P. Adams as the third.
On Monday a resolution offered by the Hon. Mr.
Smith instructing the Committee of Experts to ex
amine the accounts of all the Departments of Gov
ernment, was, on motion of the Hon. Mr. Kaai, in
definitely postponed. Hon. Mr. Halstead gave notice
of his intention to introduce a bill to prevent the im
migration of Chinese males unaccompanied by
females. (This is a sensible measure.) Under a
suspension of the rules, the bill was read and referred
at once. Hon. Mr. Kaai gave notice of his intention
to introduce a bill to regulate the sale of opium or
preparations thereof. (To re-enact the license sys
tem.) A resolution instructing the Molokai Com
mittee to invite the Hon. Mr. Wilder to accompany
them, gave rise to a spicy discussion. The Hon. Mr.
Wilder, while thanking the mover of the resolution,
was quite aware that the Committee did not desire
his company on the expedition, and under the cir
cumstances, were the resolution to pass, he should
decline to go. Hon. Mr. Bishop, while rating the
Committee severely for their purposely neglecting to
invite Mr. Wilder, paid that gentleman a high com
pliment for the able and really generous manner in
which he has discharged the arduous duties of agent
of the Board of Health in connection witb the leper
settlement during the past five or six years. As
evidence of a philanthropic spirit and love of the
people, he preferred deeds rather than words. The
resolution was adopted, but Mr. Wilder did not ac
company the Committee, and some four members were,
on their own request, excused from serving on the
Committee. The remainder of the session (until 3
p. i.t when the Assembly adjourned to Thursday
morning, in order for the Select Committee to visit
Molokai) was occupied by the Ministers of Finance
and Interior, in adversely reviewing the report of
the Committee of Finance.
The Assembly met on Thursday and Friday, but
transacted no very important business with the ex
ception of postponing indefinitely the bill to remove
the retrictions on the sale of intoxicating drinks to
natives. There will be no session to-day.
Visit to Kalawao.
The visit of a committee of the Legislature to the
leper settlement, which has of late years come to
be a biennial matter of course, took place this
week. Thecommittee and invited gutsts left Hono
lulu ou the steamer Kilauca-hou at 5 o'clock on
Monday afternoon, and arrived at the settlement at
an early hour on Tuesday. The visitors were met
at the beach by a large concourse of the unfortu
nate inhabitants, who were informed by the Chair
man of the Committee of the object of the visit.
The contributions of the charitable people of Hono
lulu, consisting of clothing, &c, contained in nine
cases, were distributed, together with the sum of
100, a gift from the Dowager Queen Emma. The
committee devoted several hour3 during Tuesday
and Wednesday to hearing statements made by the
lepers as to their condition, wants, &c, and the hos
pital and other buildings were inspected. A thor
ough investigation was made as to everything per
taining to the treatment of the lepers and the man
agement of the settlement, full particulars of which
will doubtless appear in the report of the commit
tee, which we understand will be laid before the
Assembly on Monday. Dr. Hatcbinson, one of the
medical members of the Board of Health, who ac
companied the committee, has also made a lengthy
report to that body. Mr. II. L. Chase, the photOr
grapher, was of the party, and was successful io
taking a number of unattractive likenesses of the
inhabitants. Leaving the settlement at 1 p. m. on
Wednesday, nonolula was reached at G o'clock the

Honolulu, May 29th, 1S7S. 5
To Captain Henry If. Mist, Jl. .V., H.lI.M.'i
Commissioner for Immigration, etc.:
Sir: I have the honor to report, for the infor
mation of His Majesty's Board of Immigration, the
arrival at Honolulu of the Stormbird under my
command, aud to submit the following report of my
In compliance with your written instructions, I
sailed from Sydney on the 27th of October, and after
a run of nine days, touched at Norfolk Island, (as
we were passing close to it) to get one cf our " bob
stays " repaired, the bolt in the " cutwater " cf
which had broken. This was done by the blacksmith
of the Island. I obtained here also two spars for
the better securing of our boats to the " davits,"
aud a supply cf fresh vegetables, etc., for the ship's
company. We remained here but one day and sail
ed again for Ilotumah, wheie we anchored cn the
25th of November. We were well received at this Is
land, and besides laying iu a good stock of yams.
figs, fruit, etc., and tilling up with good water, 1
succeeded in engaging thirty-one fine young natives,
in which I was greatly assisted by the resident Mis
sionary Mr. Moore, and the two principal Chiefs
"Albert" aud Rumkow," to the two latter of
whom I made suitable presents.
These Islanders are very favorably disposed to
wards emigrating to the Sandwich islands, and I
should certainly recommend this place as the start
ing point for all future voyages. The rate cf wages
demanded by them is rather high, but when it comes
to be taken into consideration their civilization and
general superiority to the other Island natives, I do
not consider the rate demanded (viz.: 5 per
month) at all excessive. I may mention that this
amount they have been iu the habit of receiving for
some considerable time from other sources for the
employment of their labor.
We left Rotumah on the 1th cf December and
made for the Ellis Island-, arriving at 1'uuafuti,
(the principal one of the group) ou the 23d cf De
cember, having been in tight of the Island ten days.
We remained here seven days, during which time we
were employed in getting cocoanuts aud firewood ;
no water, however, could be obtained nor could I
succeed iu inducing any of tie natives to emigrate,
as this Island, like all the rest of the group, lias
been almost entirely depopulated by various causes
and very few (estimated at about 180) remain. I
resolved, however, before quitting for the Kings
mills' to visit two more of these Islands, and ac
cordingly made for and arrived off Nui, or Eeg Is
land, on the olst of December, where I landed in
one of the ship's boats through a heavy and danger
ous surf, the vessel " lying off and on " until the
Tlth of January, (at times drifting and being blown
out of eight cf the land) when I was enabled to get
on board again, after a fortnight's residence amongst
the natives, of whose kindness and hospitality I can
not speak too favorably. I met with no better suc
cess here, as regards emigrants, than I did at 1'uua
futi, to after getting a small supply of pigs nnd
poultry, I sailed for the northermost Island cf the
group, Nuitao, arriving off the Island on the 19th,
but as at Nui, unable to anchor with the vessel.
I remained " oil and on " for nine days, but did
nothing in the way cf emigration, nor could uny
supplies be obtained. The three Islands above men
tioned have the most inhabitants of any of that
group, and as no emigrants could be obtained from
either, I may safely say that for the future, it will
be no use eoinj: to any of them, as it will Le onlv
time wasted; and I consider our visit thete fully
retarded the Storm JJird five or six weeks in the
prosecution cf her voyage. These Islands are not
only thinly populated, but supplies are very scanty
and extremely difficult to obtain. Anchorages gene
rally bad and unsafe, and landing at all times dan
gerous to a ship's boats, being twice swamped my
self in native canoes. During the time we were
amongst the Ellis Islands, we experienced very bad
and tempestuous weather from the westward, with a
continuous downfall cf very heavy rain, which kept
us amply supplied with water, although our euils
suflered considerably. I must here be permitted to
direct the notice of the proper authorities, to the
power, (I may say offensive authority), assumed by
some of the Native Samoan Teachers, (or Missiona
ries as some choose to call themselves), placed on
these Islands by the London Missionary Society's
In some instances one iu particular under m v own
notice they are trading indirectly, to the detriment
of the white resident traders, to a very considerable
extent ; but I presume this must be unknown to and
done without the knowledge of their superior!. I
should not have made it my business to touch upon
such a subject, had I not been requested to do so by
several white people residing on the Islands, and to
make this as their complaint. No doubt if it was not
for the immense influence exercised by these "Teach
ers" over the natives, a few of them might have
been induced to emigrate ; but such emigration, for
obvious reasons, is sorely against the Samoan Teach
ers interests. We left the Island of Nuitao on the
28th of January, and our next destination was the
Kingsmill Gioup, arriving off the Island of Ararai
on the 5th of February, where we remained until
the next day w ithout anchoring or getting any cf the
natives to come with us ; (pleading that the Island
was altogether too thinly populated, as regards men,
for the support of the women and children.) We,
however, sent a boat on shore and bought about one
thousand cocoanuts, but could get no further sup
plies. On the following day we visited Clark's
Island with a similar result, aud on the 11th of Feb
ruary made Byron's Island ; but failing here as at
the two former, sailed the following day for Peru, ar
riving the next morning ; but found we could not
anchor on account of a northerly and northwest wind
blowing, rendering it unsafe to do so. Notwith
standing the difficulty cf having to keep under weigh
"standing off and on" we engaged five tmi
grants, and should have been able to get more, bad
the weather permitted us to remain, as many seemed
most anxious to come on board, but were prevented
coming off so far in their canoes. They will be cn
the lookout for the return cf the Storm Jiird, and I
have no doubt that next voyage a considerable num
ber cf people will be easily obtained here.
They seem (from the few who came on board to see
their friends cQ) to be very nice, quiet, and well
behaved natives, and meat willing to do what they
are told. We left Peru cn the 5ih, and arrived off
Sydenham Island cn the 18th of February, where
we anchored in deep water close to the reef, it being
very fair weather and perfectly safe to to do. By
this means we afforded the natives (both sexes) an
excellent opportunity cf visiting the vessel, and we
engaged without any difficulty twelve fine men and
ten women, in all twenty-two. Many more would
have joined us, but were prevented by their relatives
from coming. We purchased here also a large quan
tity of cocoanuts, but no other supplies could be ob
tained from the natives, although I got a small quan
tity of flour (our flour on board was running short)
and some poultty from a white trader cn shore. Oo
the 21st we again weighed and proceeded next to
Drummond's Island, where e anchored neit Jay,
remaining thereuntil the 27th. Here we shipptJ
ten men and four women, fourteen in all, and as at
the previous Island, more would have come, but
their friend did not like so many going away at CLe
time. Peru, Sydenham and Drummond's Island's
will be excellent recruiting grounds for future
The next Island it was my intention to visit was
Maiana, as I was very anxious to get my women
passengers from Sydney landed ence more at their
homes; but the winds falling light, (at times calm),
aud a strong current setting us rapidly to the west
ward rendering it almost an impossibility to " work
up" to the Island, I bad no alternative but to
" stretch away " to the northward to get into tha
"counter" or easterly current. It was thea we
began to feel some uneasiness regarding our provi
sions and water, the latter beginning to run rather
low, and as we had over eighty people on board, I
naturally felt a deal of anxiety on their account, and
resolvod to make for Jaluit or Bonham'a Island, at
which place we knew there was a very extensive
German trading establishment and where we could
obtain both supplies and water: and in taking which
step, my chief officer fully concurred with me, as
be bad on a former occasion been to the lame place
and bis knowledge aud information wis to be there
fore relied oo. We accordingly arrived at Jaluit cn
the Htb March, where we obtained, at anticipated,
all wc wanted, not only that, but it afforded b
emigrants an opportunity of a "run cn Mioir,
and enabled us to give the ship somewhat cf a relit
and our crew a little rest, which they much needed
after five months cf bard and very trying work. I
was glad indeed myself to get a quiet day or two cn
shore amongst white friends, ns the climate and the
want cf fresh vegetable and fruit, (wc bad been
ten weeks without sugar or vegetables cf any kind),
was beginning to make itself till upon us all: and
not being able use our lemon juice, having no sugar
to mix it with, was to bo regretted.
1 must here inform you that our meant for stow
ing water were very far frcm sufficient for the num
ber cf people wc bad cn boar J, un 1 1 was obliged to
purchase at this place sufficient water catks to u

would make our total quantity when complete, up to
nearly ten tons or about forty days' allowance.
