Shot bt Accident. At Kobala. Maul, on tbe 22d
inst. a native was examining a loaded shot gun.
wben it was accidently discharged, tbe load of
bird shot entering Ibe abdomen ot another native
standing near, and coming out at bis back, pro
ducing a wound that was thought to be mortal.
The w.mnded man. named Kahiona. exonerated
tbe other liotu nil? evil intention.
Tub Qi"kex's Hospital. A uew ward for foreign
patients bus just been completed at ibis valuable
national institution. It consists ol a two story
brick building erected on the North-West side of
the main hospital building, and besides tbe usual
accommodation for tbe sick, has a light aud airy
room on the ground floor for surgical ooerations.
The Queen's Hospital is now, more than ever, an
honor to Hawaii Nei. and u just object of pride to
Thk Racks. Notwithstanding the influence of
the powerlul Kahunas, the races at hwa turned in
an entirely opposite direction, as the horse Lopi-
ne which bad been fondled with awa root and
other necromancies as the winner, was as tbe re
sult proved the most decidedly, loser, being not on
ly beaten by C. Lucas' horse ' Creeper.'' but also
by Clarence Maclarlane s horse Dating. Con
siderable money changed hands on tbe first race,
and the kahunns una their followers lost. Awa-
root aud loolishness do not always win a race ;
the best borses usually do. Verbum sap.
Bi!Kaki.q Seals. We hear that on Wednesday
morning last, a seal which bad on tbe previous ev
ening- beeu placed by the Customs guard upon tbe
door of a compartment of the hold of tbe bark D.
C. Murray, was found broken a suspicions cir
cumstance. We remember an instance in San
Francisco where the similar breaking of a seal
(and by mistaken authority to do so) subjected
the vessel to a fine of $500. We have however,
no sucb regulation here.
The New York Election-. We failed to get a
full file of New Zealand dailies by tbe Australia,
but we bear that one of tbe 7th instant, which is
somewhere in town, contained a telegraphic dis
patch from London to the effect that tbe election in
the State of New York had gone in favor of tbe
Republicans, and that Cornell, their candidate for
Governor, had been elected. The steamer due on
Monuay will brine particulars. 1 tie result as
stated is not surprising, in view of the split in tbe
Democratic party. So far, there would seem to be
a Solid North ,: for tbe Republicans, against a
hardly " Solid South " lor the Democrats.
A Runaway. A horse and wagon, without a
driver, arrived at the junction ol Emma and Bere
tauia streets at 7.30 Thursday evening, ami from
the appearance of the horse the distance gone over
must buve been accomplished at a very rapid
pace. The wagon bore evidence of rough usago.
such us might have been received from too close
contact with tbe pedal extremities-ol a mule or
horse. Two broken sour mush hollies lav in the
road, having been dropped from the wagon by ac
cident. No owner appearing the horse was arrest
ed and carried to tbe station bouse with a police
man iu front of him. policemen behind him, and a
mixed crowd on either side.
Memorial Window. A stained glass window
(by Clayton & Bell, of London) has recently been
placed at the East end of the Church of the Holy
Innocents. Lahaina. to the memory ol lhe lale Hen
ry Dickenson Tiie window is in three lights. The
subject of lhe first is our Blessed Lord's Baptism
by St. John iu the river Jordan, with the text be
low : " This is My Beloved Son in whom I am
well pleased.-' The subject of the centre light is
the crucifixion, with St. John and the Blessed Vir
gin standing at lhe loot of the cross. Underneath
are the words. " I i! 1 be lilted up will draw all
men unto Me." In the third light the S ivi.oir is
representing lisinir Irom the tomb, and beneath is
the text. 1 am the Resurrection and Hie Life."
Along the loot of these lights runs the following
inscription : To the Glory ol God, and in mem
ory ol Heur Dickenson, who died Oct. 29th. ItilC,
aed 1 2 years. Lrected by subset lplion.
Ef The following rhymes, though coming from
an anonymous source, embody a truth.
Three Chinese tailors Bat on a board.
To buy themselves opium they could not afford,
For all their small earnings they wanted tt) hoard
To take back to China.
Aud when they get there, as I understand.
They will never take needle again In hand ;
They will live like kings in the Flowery land.
When once back in China.
When those three get there, six will come here.
To eat our bread and drink our beer,
And contaminate all that they come near,
And then go back to China.
When those six get there, as we're truthfully told,
Still more will come to gather our gold.
And they will leave before they are old,
For the Flowery shores of China.
Now if of my tale you have any doubt.
Just traverse our streets aud you'll soon find out.
It is nothing bnt truth I ain telling about
s These Mongol hordes from China.

5ted Egypt last year, and made a, thorough person
al inspection of the ruins ol Thebes, together with
the neighboring tombs of the Kings and Queens,
and his description of them prefaced with a per
spicuous historical sketch of Egypt in tbe lime of
Rameses the Great and bis successors. was ab
sorbingly interesting. The lecture was illustrated
by drawings ot the ground plans of Thebes and the
ruins ot the great temples, those gigantic works ot
ait of the Egyptians more than three thousand
yeaisago. They had not. it is true, the steam
engine and the electric telegraph, but iu engineer
ing science, as tbe Professor remarked, truly there
weie giants in those days. The lecture was appro
priately closed wi;h a quotation trom the Book of
Ezekiel, prophesying the downfall and utter ruin
of the then great aud prosperous kingdom of
The Bark Kalakaca.'" A libel was filed by
Collector General of Customs la5t week in tbe Su
preme Court against th s vessel together with the
36 tins ot opium, containing about three and a half
pounds, because the said opium was smuggled
iDto this Kingdom on said bark, on or about tbe 2d
instant. At the time the emuggled opium was dis
covered, the ingenious way in wblcb it was con
cealed iu some firewood shipped from San Francis
co, will be remembered. The case was heard be
fore Chief Justice Harris, Messrs. Castle Si Hatch
appearing for libellant, in the absence ol tbe At
torney General and Mr. S. B. Dole for claimants.
On Monday last, the Chief Justice gave bis decis
ion, confiscating the bark. After reviewing at
leugth the evidence adduced. His Honor remarked:
The conclusion is irresistible that the opium in
question was placed on board the vessel by tbe
connivance at least ot the mate of the ship (A. L.
Ritchie) and was sought to be imported into this
country for the benefit and profit ol the witness Rit
chie, and whoever mizbtbe associated with him, and
I cannot but think with tbe connivance of the mate.
It appears to me certain that the opium in question
was imported in the bark Kalakaua with the guilty
knowledge of those iu charge of the said vessel,
and I do therefore adjudge that the said bark Kal
akaua. her tackle, apparel and furniture be con
demned, and the same is forfeited to the use of the
Hawaiian government, as by the etitute in sucb
case made and provided, and farther I do judge
and decree that the 36 tins of opium found on
board said bark are likewise condemned and for
feited to tbe use of the Hawaiian government."
We understand an appeal baa been noted to the
Conrt in banco.

Thk Storm Bird.'' This vessel, belonging to

tbe 24th of last June, on a voyage to tbe Faclfio
Islands for native immigrants. Since b)r depart
uie. now one hundred and filiy-eigbt days, no tid

tbe well-known retired sugar planter, bad received
a Queensland paper, containing a statement to tbe
effect that during the mouth of September a brig
amine called the Xlurm liird bad arrived at a port
in that colony with a full load of Polynesian
labor," and was then relating for another cruise.
We lost no time in interviewing Mr. Campbell at
bis country residence at llonouliuli. and be fully
continued tbe above statement as having been
contained in the Queensland paper received by
nim : but unfortunately the puper cannot now be
found. We do not wish to believe that Messrs.
Jackson (tbe master) and Freeman (tbo agent)
nave deliberately ubscouded with tbe vessel ; an2
it is just possible that there may be another titorm

increasing magnitude ol the trade between England
and Australia, together with the laige additions to
