frequent and refreshing showers which, we hear,

pest usually appears in the fall and winter months.
We believe it generally spares the canefields.
A Musical Treat. It is gratifying to note that
while our Island community is proverbial for a re
fined and enlightened literary taste, there is a
growing disposition to favor the oultivation of
musical talent. The Amateur Musical Association
of this city last evening at the residence of Dr. J. S.
McGrew, delighted a large company of ladies and
gentlemen by finished rendering of some of the
popular compositions of the day. We regret that

June, is Commemoration Day, and will be observed
as a general holiday. The one point of attraction
will be the races at Kapiolani Park, whither every
body and his family will go at or before the hour of
10, when the sport begins. There being no less
than seventy or more wagons for hire in and about
Honolulu, there will be no difficulty in getting a
conveyance to the Park; besides which the steamer
Robbie, Captain Black, will make trips during the
day, between her wharf and the Park landing.
There will be refreshment booths on the grounds,
where lunch can be had. For information in regard
to the races, see advertisement.
An Episode. A correspondent writing from
Wailuku under date the 29th ult. says : Some
six weeks ago a minaman, accompameu Dy a
little native girl and her mother applied to the
agerft to grant marriage licenses for this district
for a license to marry the aforesaid little girl. The
mother said she was willing, the girl was anxious
and the Chinaman importunate, but the agent
refused as the child was too young according to
his ideas of right. The Chinaman offered a bribe,
but was still refused, and finally went and got
some friends to come and plead with the agent.
All was in vain, as the government official had
made up his mind that the infant was not old
enough to be mated with the bald headed Celestial.
Yesterday, the Chinaman returned with the mother
and took out a license to marry her, as he bad
failed of the other member of the family.
"The heathen Chinee is peculiar."
There was no session of the Assembly on Satur
day. On Monday a large number of petitions were
presented, of the usual unimportant or frivolous
nature. The subject cf impure kerosene in the
market appears to have impressed members some
what, as a resolution and an act were introduced, the
first to confer with the Collector General through a
committee on the question, and the second to author
ize the appointment of an inspector of oils. The
report (yet in embryo) of the Commission to exam
ine accounts of the Departments of the Interior and
Attorney General, was ordered translated and printed
and to be presented on Monday next. The bill pro
viding for half-yearly tours of the Islands by Minis
ters, (a very proper bill) was indefinitely postponed.
So also was the bill to legalize the sale of spirits to
all persons without distinction of nationality which
of course was to repeal the restriction on natives.
Those Representatives who voted for this bill, were :
Hon. Messrs. Malo, Keau, Paniani, Moanauli, jr.,
Kupau, Kaoliko, Kaukau and Palobau. Notwith
standing their defeat, the advocates of free liquor
will try again, in some other form.
On Tuesday, a petition was received from a China
man, setting forth that the Chinese laborers on the
plantation at Olowalu, Maui, are ill treated. The
petition was referred for investigation to the Board
of Immigration. The Special Committee to visit
Molokai reported at length, which was ordered
printed. The expedition cost SC14.90.
During Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, there
was little of importance transacted in the Assembly
A number of bills on subjects of minor interest, and
bills that are certain to be defeated eventually, were
moved on a stage or referred to committees. A
number of resolutions calling for the appropriation
of moneys for public works, were laid on the table,
to be taken up with the appropriation bill which
last it is hoped will be reached within the next ten
days. The Hon. Mr. Palohau offered a resolution
directing the sergeant-at-arms to provide dinner for
members at the noon recess each day; but the pro
position was virtuously voted down.
The annual business meetino of the Hawaiian
Mission Children's Society will be held this evening
in the Vestry of Fort St. Church. A full attend
ance is requested.
Thirtt Dats. The Legislative Assembly has
been in session thirty days, up to yesterday ; and
we can't remember anything of great importance
that it has done as yet.
Matinee. Val Vose gave a Matinee at the The
atre on Thursday afternoon. The children were
perfectly entranced by the "Funny Folks," and
therefore happj We understand the Professor will
give one more and final performance at the Hawaiian
Hotel, next Saturday afternoon.
Estate of C. Kanaina. The applications to de
clare the heir or heirs of the estate of the late chief
Charles Kanaina, made before Mr. Justice McCully
of the Supreme Court, have resulted in a decision
that there are no lawful heirs, and that the property
must escheat to the government. We hear, bow
ever, that a motion will be made to re-open the case,
on the ground of newly discovered evidence.
By the kind attention of Major Wodehouse, II. B.
M.'s Commissioner, we have received copies of the
Reports of the French Engineers engaged in the
exploration of routes for inter-ocean canals by
the Isthmus of Darien, and Lake Nicaragua. The
subject is one of great interest to commerce in this
Ocean, and we propose to give a brief resume of
their contents at an early date.
The Queen's Fair, held on the grounds of the
Government House last Saturday evening, was a
decided success. thanks to the exertions of the
ladies, who here as elsewhere nil over the world,
are most potent laborers in a good cause. We
are pleased to learn that the cash receipts were
not far from $2,000. which will prove a most time
ly contribution to the funds of the Native Female
Benevolent Associations ol Honolulu.
ACSTIilCT OF COIACKS by UO.V. Mr. CI( ki:UTO.
Of Iiamakna, in the Assembly 31 ay 25, in rrpoD
to the remarks of Ills Excellent) the Attorney
Mb. Chairman 1 haJ not intcuJed to reply UDtil the Min
istera naa all spoken. We have Ui.l our Hoport before tli
House, and it was to be expected lhatthi Ministers would
have all replied, but the Attorney (Jeneral is the only cue that
nil taken the tloor, so 1 shall r junae myself uiaiuly in reply
ing to luni. He has certainly male a clever and eloquent at
tempt to throw a blur of ronfuMjn on our Ut-port. Mutt of us
have seen the cuttle fish n,l the wat,r with ink when anything
approaches it; but every man has a ri-lit lo dek'iul huno lf and
should certainly do so when necessary, llut let me II rat say
that his attack seems to be directed alnnmt entirely at Mr
Gibson, the Chairman of our Committee of Finance. It is an
attempt to put forward an idea that this whole Report come
from him, and that the other members of this Committee bav
been toU in hi hands, and that it is a personal affair l hi
only. Now 1 want every member of this House, Ministers
Nobles and Representatives to distinctly understand I never
sign my name to anything, unless 1 intend lo take the resimtisi
bility of it, and that not a wcrd of this Report has been put in
prim, without being lully discussed and considered by the whol
Committee. We went through the departments and bureaus,
and took notes as we went, and from these notes and from
tersonal observation, and not lrom outside information (as tb
Attorney General thought proper to say) we have made up
this Kt-port. "elia l a duty given us lo perform, and
have performed it fearlessly ; and I know 1 ran say with W
ty, that if we have nnl the approval of the Miuistirs, we have
the approval of a large majority of the community. Ibrre i
nothing in that report, that can't be substantiated, aud if
necessary more can be added to it, to bear out our statement
in regard to the many irregularities cf administration, etc , in
some of the departments, whicil 1 repeal do deserve the srav
est censure. The Attorney tleoeral said we intended evident
ly to suggest crime and dishonesty. We baverharged nothing
of the kind; perhaps we have not soken plainly ruough w
have told the truth and nothing more, and I for one uiii in
afraid of results; truth must and will always prevail. Hi
Excellency also spoke of persons! enmity I myself have nne
whatever to any one of the Ministers; but I say this, that a
man must not know a rnend when he has a uiilic duty t
lerforra. If my own father had been a member of the preset
Ministry aud it was necesary to make such a report as we
have made, I should have done it. It is often very hard to
have to tell the truth, and lo censure, but il is a man's duty
sometimes to do it unflinchingly; it is sometimes very hard
to have lo listen to the truth. There is no greater pleasure
than to be able lo give praise, and we have given it where il
was deserved. I only wish thai the whole report could have
been in that strain, and not a l.iull to be round with any de
partment; but it was not to be so, and we have had to erforiii
this most unpleasant duty.
Now. Mr. Chairman, let us pass in review these attempts at
first The item of hi realized from Hawaiian Hotel
Here was clearly a Government realization, and the Registrar
of Public Accounts treated it as such. The matter is relerred
to the Supreme Court, the proper place. I say, but lo came
this new Ministry, some o I them bondholders, auu trie Attorney
General counsel for the bomllioiuers, ana tne neiristrar oi
Public Accounts is ordered, under penalty of being discharged
from his oflice. lo pay over this money lo bondholders. J
course he has lo obey, aud the money is paid out, the Hupreiue
Court being entirely ignored. Hie Attorney Uenerai seems lo
forget that when he look oflice in the Ministry, be became
attorney lor the Crown, and was at uie same nine attorney lor
bondholders. Never tniud what the former Attorney General
had said; the matter was in the bands of the rupreme Court,
and be should have left it there lor them to decide.
Second As retards the drawing cf balance of appropria
tions. In the Attorney General's remarks he admits lhal he
did draw these balances, but says that it Had been the custom
to do so; but we find that this was not altogether so. as shown
in our report (paces 3 aud 4.) He also say lhal. if the Lorn
mittee had said they wanted it returned to the Treasury, he
would have done so. V e bad no right or authority lo say
anything of the sort; It was not within our province. It is
the principle of the thing we object to; it is a custom lhal
should be abolished. lie has the balance oi former appropria
tioos in hand, but lie asks fir the new appropriation of
f 2.600 in addition. The result ol course nould be that there
would be three times as much appropriate! than was required
Third As regards the appropriation foe clerk hire, lo bis
report we find ail the appropriation for clerk for Attorney
General had been used at the close of Hie fiscal period. He
says that he has a right to use his own discretion in iendiiig
this appropriation. '1 his may be his opinion, but this appro
priation is for a certain purpose, and should be used lor il only
II says these younger men or boys are competent lo do the
work. I am afraid it is not so, an instance oi whicii was seen
at the last November term at Waitnca, Hawaii. There Mr.
Castle was employed to act as Deputy Attorney General, and
all the indictments (which had been drawn by one of these
young men) were found to be bad, and Mr. Castle had lo amend
them all. This would cot have occurred if a comment clerk
had been employed, and I think the Attorney General will
admit such a person could net be got for less sum than the
appropriation. He also says that the counsel he employs lo
goon Circuit or other work, are paid out of the clerks' appro
priation. I asked tne Attorney General at his oflice il tins
was so. lie mentione d an instance or mr. laatie being em
ployed, and called for one of his clerks, and asked him about
it. He brought in I lie dralt-book, and alter turning bark,
he found it. It had been paid out of, I think, the appropria
tion for apprehension of criminals, but certainly it was not
from the clerks' appropriation. I would here say that it a
proper set of books bad been kept, this could have been shown
at once. Then comes the pay nf Mr. I'restnn for acting for
him at this last llilo term. He (Mr. Preston) was paid by a

Fourth AS regards the item or 1 100 that the Attorney
General drew aud afterward refunded to the Foreign Ollice.
He admits all we say on this subject to be the case, bul he says
he was right in charging and collecting It. If so, why did be
refund it ? Why did he not keep il, and if a question arose in
he Assembly about the matter, he could have explained il. II
he thought he was right, he rhould have stuck to it.
A regards the Attorney General s books, we do not say that
we have discovered any error in his books, but we do say thai
a proper set of books should be kepi In bis department as much
as any other. Il is impossible lo carry on Hie work properly
I would simply say before resuming my seat, that it Would
take any Committee six months' hard work to look proerly
into all the particulars of the working of I he different depart

New Appointment. We take pleasure in an
nouncing that the Hon. J. Hardy was yesterday
commissioned us Circuit Judge of Kauai, to suc
ceed the late Hon. D. McBryde. Judge Hardy
was the incumbent of the position in former years,
in which he gave thorough satisfaction, but has
resided latterly in California. We congratulate
the people of Kauai On again having among them
a gentleman so well qualified in every particular
to perform the duties of the oflice.
Found Dead. A letter to Marshal Parke from
J. L. Richardson at Waianae, Oahu, reports that
the body of an aged native woman was found
on the beach at Lualualei, on the 31st ult. On
examination no marks of violence were found on
the body, and death had apparently occured several
days before. No one could identify the person,
and Mr. R. supposes that she had wandered away
from home and died for want of food and water, as
the place is very lonely and barren and some dis
tance from any travelled road.
Fakewell ConrLn-iENTAKT Benefit. On next
Monday evening Mr. Charles Derby will be the re
cipient of a farewell complimentary benefit tendered
by the Honolulu Amateur Dramatic Association, and
under the patronage of His Majesty the King. The
programme is an excellent one, and, for the purpose
for which it is presented, is sure to draw a full
house. Mr. Derby, during his long residence here,
has labored most assiduously for the recreation of
the public, and in many ways contributed largely to
their cmusement and benefit. His knowledge of
botany has assisted many in the successful introduc
tion of plantar and flowers; bis gymnastic classes
have afforded our young men opportunities for the
development of their muscles and consequent im
provement of their health, and his abilities as a
teacher of music have been recogniied by our citizens
generally. In a word, it will be hard to find one
competent to fill his place so acceptably as be has
done. He goes for his health, and the.humper he is
sure to receive on Monday night will prove the pub
lic esteem in which he is held.
Turning the Tables. A letter from Kan, Ha
waii, dated the 28th ult.. says: " An old kanaka
was rather astonished Ibis afternoon. He was en
caged in the lucrative business of rncnufacturing
okote hao (native rum). While absent from his
factory for a short time, two young lads coming
across the works, helped themselves to the ardent
and were caught in the act by the worthy owner.
He immediately arrested them, tied their hands
together and marched them to the jail. The Sher
iff came, found out what the trouble was, loosed
the two boys and shoved the old man inoide the
" Hale Paahao." and a more astonished looking
old fellow you never saw !'
Miss Binn. A very inteiesting letter from this
lady appears in the June number of the Friend.
The letter is dated at San Francisco, the writer
being on her way to Japan, and we learn from
it that the Hawaiian contributions to the Living
stone Memorial Bazaar were highly appreciated,
and sold for $C20. At the Bazaar there was a
table in the centre of the ball with the contribu
tions sent by the Princess Louise at one end, and
the Hawaiian articles at the other. The crush
from morning to night at the Hawaiian end was
fearful. A barrier had to be erected to prevent
injury to the things, so great was the interest.
The Livingstone Bazaar Gazette noticed the con
tributions in the following terms :
There are, among other things, a very fine
specimen of tapa cloth made from the inner bark
of a species of breadfruit, pine, grass mats and
baskets, gourd calabashes, a bat and plait made
from the stalks of the maiden hair fern, three
complete suits of clothing from Micronesia, leis
of maize and amaranth, and necklaces of nut
and shell beads, ground by band labor.
Among the curiosities most noteworthy are
specimens of recent lava from the volcano of
Kilauea, a Hawaiian household idol, a necklace
of whale's teeth from Fiji, superbly savage, flaying
knife used at cannibal banquets in Fiji, some
exquisite specimens of pink branch coral, shells,
chatelaines of mimosa seeds, and a primitive
telephone. The Hawaiian " etone age" is repre
sented by a stone axe, eighty years old. which has
been bought for the Society of Antiquaries. The
centre of attraction, however, is a necklet of
human hair, with a pendant of human thigh bone,
as worn by Kamehameha I. This has been
purchased for the Museum of Science and Art.
It is amusing to see the different ways in which
different people are affected by this collection.
Some shudder at the sight of the flaying knife
and the necklet ; many exclaim, " How very
interesting;" as many more, in defiance of the
placard above the table, insist that the things
are contributed by the Princess Louise, and one
woman of shrewd aspect, after considering them
attentively for some minutes, and carefully not
ing the prices, turned to the lady in charge with
the remark. " Aye. woman, all yer trash ain't
worth five shillings!"
Our readers will remember that some eighteen
months ago, accounts were published In the puj,ers
of this city, of the execution, at one of the Ielunds
of Microuesia, of a native for the; murder of a
foreigner. The account slated thut the man was
blown from a gun by order of the officer in com
mand of one of II.B.M.S8 ships. The following
letter from a resident of the Island in question,
gives the statement of an ye-witness of the whole
affair, and we publish it in justice to Lieut. I'ugh
of the " Renard :"
Apaiako, Pept. 19, 187".
To H.B.M. Contul, Honolulu, :
Hear Sir : In consequence of a statement In the t'rirml
tor November, 1S78, page Stf. and In December, page U7, in
justice to Lieutenant I'ugh, I beg leave In stale the truth of
the proceeding. On Buuday, April M. 1876, II U.M. schooner
Renard " arrived, commanded by l.ieut. Pugh, lo demand
the execution of the murderer of fct. John Curtis Keys. On
Monday, the 24th, after investigating the matter with the
King, and being informed that the murderer was on the neigh
boring Island Mankee, Lieut. Pugh said to the King. " Ho
you recognize thai paper i" The King said. " I do ; it is ihe
written protection ol Mr. Keys signed by ine." Lieut. I'ugh
then said to the King, " Now I demand that you use every ex
ertion to capture and execute the murderer, and in proof of
which writing six hours from now 1 expect to see one of your
large canoes, properly manned, start for the Island of Marikee
for that purpose." There is no King or government on Marikee
nor neer was. The King said, " tupose we do not gel him."
The Lieut, said, "In that case ycu will not see my face again.
When justice is done, I shall be glad lo lake you by the hand."
The canoe returned on Ihe night of the 2fith with the murderer.
They brought hi in to my house. The King said I hey had no
place to secure him, and was afraid ol arescue.and there might
be bloodshed. I bound Ihe murderer s hands, for he bad not
been bound previous, and look him on board the M Itenard "
The Lieutenant said as the King had no place to secure him
he would take charge of him till the morning, and would
bring him on shore at 8 a. m. and deliver him lo the King for
execution, as he wiahed him lo understand distinctly that Ihe
Renard "did not come there to execute Hie murderer, but lo
see that the peopie of Apaiang did so. The King asked me
how it should be done. I submitted lo turn Ihe halter, the
volley of musketry, the axe, Done of which he seemed to like ;
when I told him I bad heard ol people heinir blown from a gun.
He said, " That will do ; that is quick death and no trouble,"
At 8 a. m. on Ihe morning ol the 27th, Lieutenant I'ugh
brought ihe prisoner onshore with a halter round hi neck.
When he saw the preparations, Lieutenant Pugh said it was
not the mode of execution he would recommend, bul he did
not wish to Interfere. The man was delivered lo the King and
was bound lo the gun by native. Lieutenant I'ugh was ac
companied by sub-Lieutenant Itees. and about fourteen or six
teen men. Lieutenant I'ugh addressed Ihe natives, telling
thern he hoped this act of justice would be a warning lo them
and let them see they could not murder foreigners with im
punity ; that sooner or later they would be punished. The
gun was fired by a native by the King's order. I am air.
Yours very respectfully, It. Ittnuui.r.

Mb. Editor: Seldom Lave wo provincials (as
you were pleased to term tin in your last issue)
been the recipients of no much real pleasure as
was afforded u by the uriival in our city of the
Hawaiian Amateur Mintiel." Subsequent to
their arrival they gave three entei tuintnenl". and
uny one, to judge by the distended sides of a bag
that was t.iken away by the businecN tnannjer,
w ould naturally infer that their receipts were very
Luge. There were apjiatently very few dead
heads," though the wiiter hereof, through the
com testes of tlie "buys," pleads guilty to tb
charge. This troupe (to use one of their own
phrases) is "way up," unJ fully demonstrates the
fact thut native talent is "some" when properly
developed. Much credit is certainly due their
efficient manager, Mr. IVtu-e, for his I'lTolU In train

bear repetition uny number of limes. All did
their parts well, and 1 shall Hot speeiuli but In
one instance, that is our old friend Jako Fisher -oh!

we shall again greet aiming us the pleasant faces
of the Hawaiian Miustuls.
The weather is dry and the roads dusty, caused
