pelled him to change his mind. Since the House
had taken a recess at noon he had received an
anonymous letter, eo scurrilous in its terms, and of
so offensive a nature as regarded some of his friends
on both eides of the Assembly, that it determined
him to make the explanation be was now offering,
lie had destroyed the letter, vile and anonymous as
it was, in order that it might be harmless as far as
others were concerned; but it bad had the effect of
showing him how mischievous were these imperfect
reports and incorrect statements that continually
appeared in the papers.
It was stated in last Wednesday's Gazette that be
(Mr. Rhodes) had eulogized the King, and said that
he (the King) was not a tjrant, a despot, or an
autocrat, but he assured the Assembly he had had
no intention to flatter or pronounce any enlogiam
on the royal personage; he had, he hoped, a proper
respect both for the office and the illustrious per-on
who sat on the throne, bat he coald, and would not
be continually dragging him before the Assembly
or silently suffer him to be mixed up with the Min
istry, as was done on too many occasions Either
eulogiam or the reverse was highly improper in that
Assembly, which was working in the interest of all.
and he (Mr. Rhodes), in epeaking of the Sovereign
when he was mentioned as a party to what was going
on in the House, only sought to separate and keep
him perfectly distinct from the Ministry and their
measures, as a constitutional ruler, responsible only
through the persons of his Cabinet Ministers. lie
(Mr. Rhodes) sought for neither profit nor honor,
and if he did, he would not degrade himself by flat,
tering or fawning on any person, however high his
position as might be inferred he was doing from
the manner in which his name appeared in the
Mr. Bickerton asked Mr. Rhodes if any threat
was made in the paper, for if it were, it was a mat
ter belonging to the Assembly, and the cowardly
writer should be exposed and brought to punish
ment, no matter at what cost.
Mr. Rhodes replied that no threat had been made,
and that for reasons already expressed be bad de
stroyed the letter. The matter was then dropped.

The . IV. .limy arrived at this port on the 20th

dates from that city to the 15th, and from Europe

to be lifting, and there is now a brighter prospect
than heretofore that matters between England and

Regressive measures against the Socialists will be
confined to what is absolutely required. Socialistic
pamphlets are being circulated in the Berlin bar
racks. A Berlin correspondent, writing to London, says :
Bismarck, replying to Andrassy at the Congress,
expressed a particular desire to see harmony estab
lished. It seems probable that an attempt will be
made to improve upon the Paris Treaty with regard
to the seizure of private property afloat. Monday's
sitting (June 17) cf the Congress will be ruott im
portant. The first point of discussion will be the
limits of Bulgaria; but if, after discussion, Russia
persists in maintaining the treaty as modified by
this agreement, England will not dispute her right
to do eo. One of the minor points in the agreement
is the rectifying the western boundaries of Bulgaria
on the basis of nationalities; and another, that the
Turkish promises cf reform in Armenia are not to
be male exclusively to Russia, but to England also.
The proceedings cf the Congress will be secret.
A Constantinople despatch says that MouLktar
Pasha and the General Staff will to-day (June H)
visit the British fleet. The fleet wi'l shortly remove
to Princess Islands, for sanitary reasons.
It is reported that BeaconsfielJ will move the
admission of Greece to the Congress.
The Roumanian delegates are much mortified at
the cool reception they everywhere meet.
There can be no doubt cf Bismarck's desire for
peace. No vexatious incident will occur if he re
tains control of the discussions.

bearing tone towards Austria. It is stated that the
Russians in Roumania have received orders to be in

On the banks of the Ohio river I came upon
the susjK-nsion bridge which joins the States of
Ohio and Kentucky together. It was put up at
a cost of $1,800,000 by tho celebrated engineer,

bridge is greatly marred by tho inferior buildings

The distance between the towers is 1,057 feet,

length and thirty-six feet wide. The tower are
2o0 feet in length and the cables to sustain this
immense epan are a foot in diameter, consisting
of 10,300 wires, and are 103 feet above low water
mark. 1 was told that it has tho largest span of

It enabled the printers to have a good dinner in

one fault : that the Advertiser has not two vol

and publishers in the large cities abroad, and is
generally noted in the journals of the day.

license gambling houses. The first was referred to a
Committee, but the last was summarily rejected.

Penal Code (rewards to informers) was finally passed,
as was also the bill to amend the first section of the
Wednesday, July 3- After the reading of the
minutes, nis Excellency J. M. Kapena announced to
the Assembly that the Cabinet Ministers having re

To the Editor of Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
Dear Sir : I have been hoping for some time
past to see an article in your paper on the pro
posed Hamakua and Kawaihae Railroad.
The benefits that such an undertaking will con
fer on tbe Hawaiian community are so great and
so evident, that neither Government nor Legisla
ture should allow the present session to come to a
close without taking such steps as will cause tbe
enterprise vo be begun at an early date.
The most feasible plan to adopt would be tbe
system under which most of the railways in Bri
tish India have been built viz.. a guarantee by
the Government of a certain interest on tbe amount
of money expended, the Government seeing tbat

The district from which I write would derive no
direct advantage from the contemplated railroad ;
but through the development of other parts of Ha

Political and Congressional matters, particularly
such as are connected with tbe last Presidential
election, are the absorbing questions of the day in
the United States. It is apparent that the Potter
resolution and all the proceedings subsequent to
and consequent upon it, are simply for effect at
the next election. It is not ot all probable tbat
the Democratic party leaders expect to otit the
President from his seat, for such an attempt would
place the prize at which they are aiming for a long
time beyond their grasp. The nation at large is
averse to the general disturbance of ull the busi
ness relations of the country which would ensue
upon any such sweeping change. We may safely
assume that President Hayes will occupy his seat
his full term.

According t the San Francisco Bulletin an
organization luown as the International Canal
Company has obtained a concession from New
Granada for nirety-nine years of the right of way
over public an! private lands for the construction
of an internatioial canal. The work is to be begun
in 1883, and to be finished twelve years thereafter.
The neutrality of the canal is guaranteed and its
free navigation by merchant ships of all nations.
There have beet a number of concessions of this
kind by the Ceitral American States, but up to
this time little las been done beyond making pre-
iminary surveys The new company is to have
headquarters in Bogota, New York, London and
Paris. It is evuint that the capital has not yet
been secured, butan organization to baild a canal
over a definite rcate may be a short step in ad
vance. The estimites for a canal across the Isthmus
of Darien have ringed from S80.000.000 up to
120,000,000, anc some have gone beyond.

THE CINCINNATI MUSICAL FESTIVAL
Coli-miils, Ohio, U. S. A., )
May 18th, 1878. f
To the Editor of the Commercial JlJi trtiter :
Sir: Thinking that a word to you, and my
friends and relations in the Islands through the
columns of your f apcr, would be acceptable, I
will give a brief description of my trip to Cin
cinnati (the Paris of America) during the late
great Musical Festival which was held there from
the 14th to the 17th of this month, inclusive.
Tbe distanee from here is about 120 miles, and
all the railroad lines were running trains at half
rates, which was quite an advantage in a financial
line. Having secured the company of a fellow
student, a lover of music, who lives a short dis
tance from here, we etarted out on Wednesday
morning, the 15th, by the 0:25 train, on the
Little Miami railroad, a division of the Pan
Handle route. The country through which this
line passes is very rich in agriculture, and every
thing bore a Spring appearance; but only giving
us a temporary glance at the disappearing
scenery, as the train was flitting along at the
rapid rate of forty miles an hour. Just before
10 o'clock we could sec that we were approach
ing our destination, as the train was then passing
through the suburbs, which are not graced by
any very pretentious-looking mansions they
being generally found upon the elevated plateau
which surrounds the most of that city as the
part we pass through is devoted to machine
shops. At length, after a journey of a little over
three hours, we arrived at the terminus of our

The annual examination of this institution took
place June 26th and 27th. The exercises showed a
high grade of instruction, and tbat excellent progress
had been made during the past year. The readings
in English and tbe recitations in arithmetic, algebra,
and geometry showed special excellence. Tbe ex
aminations closed with tbe reading of a manuscript
newspaper conducted in a very creditable manner
by the members of the Junior Class.
The highest rank for scholarship in the Junior
Class has been awarded to William Charles Acbi, of
Kohala, Hawaii; in the Sophomore Class to loah
Kepoikai. of Wailuku, Maui; and in the Freshmen
Class to Benjamin Kahoapai, of Kau, Hawaii.
The rhetorical exercises took place Jane 28th at
the Wainee Church, of Lahaina. Tbe following was
the order of exercises: singing, Jerusalem my

The declamations by Jonah Nakila, T. K. Robert,
Betuela, Keawe, Noa Kepoikai, Benjamin Kahoapai,
John Maipinepine, and G. K. Kauhi excelled in the
distinctness of utterance and tbe excellent effect
with which they were pronounced.

of those of other rations, especially at the hotels;
the Gibson House, where we stayed, was literally
bedecked with the flags of all nations. Upon
our arrival there, after having registered our
below us was the reservoir, which is having
another ndlition made to it. Tho water i
pumped up from tho river a bight of 300 feet or
thereabouts. Scattered hero and thcro amongut
the trees were some fine residences. After seeing
all that was to be seen there, we again retraced
our steps. We visited tho water-works of tho
city, which has the finest of machinery. The
daily amount of water pumped is 404,000,000
Next morning there was what is familiarly
known as n Scotch mist, which made sight seeing
rather difficult. In the meantime I secured my
scats for the matinco that nfternooi,. They wcro
in the middle of the first overture when we
urrived, and all tho doors being shut so as not to
inconvenience those within with tlio noise o late
comers, w hich is an extremely goo idcu. During
this time we took a ramble round tho building so
as to have some knowledge of it. It is on tho
corner of VAm and Fourteenth htreets, was com
menced in September, 1870, and is not quito
finished yet. It is 2'.3 feet long, 178 feet wide,
and 150 feet to the highest pinnacle; thews are
outside measurements. The Heating capacity is
4,328. The overture being finished, tho doors
were thrown open, und there was a general rush,
which rather impeded than quickened matters.
The first thing that strikes the rye over the sea
of beads is the organ, which is seen to bent ad
vantage upon entering the ball. Its strong vcr
ticul and horizontal lines of framed construction,
the tower-like projections of the wings, the
striking contrast between the warm cherry wood
panelling and the rich display of gold and silver
pipes, and the marked lights and recesses and
carved surfaces of the entire front elevation. The
pifes range in hizo from thirty-two feet long
twenty-six inches wide to seven-eights of an Inch
in length; there arc cigbty-ono stops and 0,277
n'pes; the organ has five bellows, worked by five
ijdraulic motors, which are driven by a six-inch
main. It is the third or fourth largest organ in
the world, that in the Albert Hall in Ixindon
being the largest. The interior is lined with
cither row; or cherry wood, and to Hum it up, all
in all, it is an extremely fine piece of workman
ship, and reflects great credit upon tho donor
(.Mr. springer), the architects, am workmen.
Having obtained our seats in the auditorium, in
the third row from the front, we listened to the
sweet strains of music and song which were
f toured upon our ears by world-renowned and
ocal artistes. Appended is tie programme;

ney. There were over 500 members on tho stage
belonging to the chorus, and 100 musicians of
Professor Thomas' Orchestra. When Miss Annie
Louise Cary came forth on the stage tho was
bailed with immense enthusiasm, more so than
the others, and on conclusion of her piece tho ap
plause was turned iuto a perfect ovation. The
audience cheered with delight, and did not desist
when even Mr. Thomas (the leader) raised bis
baton for the beautiful menuet of Boccbcrini to
be commenced. The music was completely
drowned by the uproar which continued till the
menuet was half over. It hud been announced in
the beginning that no encores would be permitted,
and all that 1 can say is that when the last notes
were reverberating through the immense ball it
was with extreme regret that we picked up our
coat and shawls to leavo for the slushy streets.
After having spent the rest of the afternoon
very pleasantly, we betook ourselves in the even
ing to another ol the opem-houses, of which there
are several; but all the music and singing was
poor when compared with the delightful strains
that we had been treated to during the afternoon.
Next morning we concluded to return borne by
the morning train, arriving here a little after

Not being quite time for dinner, we etrolled
through the streets, which were crowded, and

work. DuriDg our ramble we camo across the
