Excellency did me the honor of addressing
to me yesterdaj, you accept in the name of
Vr.nr Ano-iifst Sovereip-n. and in that of His

Denmark and the Hawaiian Islands, and
vou ask me to furnish you for transmission
to the Hawaiian Government, a formal

In accordance with that request, I have
the honor to formally declare, and by virtue
of a special authorization conferred upon

great facilities of communication between
Denmark and the Hawaiian Islands, gives
its assent to the substitution of a term of

named clause ; and consequently state that
now the said clause shall read as follows :
" Any alteration in the duties levied on
" eoods shall not take effect nor be enforced
" until six calendar months after the first
41 public notification of such change."

The Hawaiian Kingdom Directory and
Tbia book, the publication of which we noticed
last week, in something more than a mere business
Directory. Tbe tables showing the holdings of land
in each island have a special interest at the present
time, as the names of bcth native and foreign owners
and lessees are given with the extent of their hold
ings. From the account given of his journeys the
publisher appears to bave visited in person almost
every inhabited part o! the islands and to speak as
an eye-witness cf their scenery and of the industries
which flourish upon them. Intel spersed through the
narrative are a good many remarks on Hawaiian af
fairs, which, from their nature betray the fact that
tbe writer has not long been resident in the King
dom which he describes and criticises. There are
also some descriptions of native manners and cus
toms as observed during this journeys or described to
the publisher by those whom he met by tbe way. An
appendix to the wcrk ecntains a rather hetero
generocs . collection of matter, chiefly articles
contributed by residents on the Islands, or extracts
from tbe works of others which are intended to illus
trate points in Mr. Bowser's own narrative. The "Ac
count of the Military Organizations of the Hawaiian
Kingdom" contains a good deal of matter which
will be as new to many of the younger residents here
as to strangers. A letter to the publisher from the
Rev. Dr. Coan of Hilo gives some account of the
life-long labors of that venerable missionary on the
Island of Hawaii. There is an elaborate " Account
of the Organization of the Judiciary Department
of tbe Kingdom, also one of the organization of tbe
"Anglican branch of the Church on the Hawaiian
Islands; ' the latter tx ing from the pen of the Rev.
T. Blackburn. Had all the institutions of the coun
try been similarly described by residents having the
special knowledge required for such a task, this
appendix would have been a very valuable part of
the book. Of the various extracts, the most amusing
is one from Mr. Commettant'a Let Civilizations
Inconnuts relating to some musical events which
occured in Honolulu a good many years ago. To
those who are in want of skilled labor, the authen
ticated statement of the wages current in California
last month may prove of use. Tbe map of Honolulu
though small, supplies a desideratum and will be
welcome to many. The engravings of Hawaiian
scenery are good and well selected, and the portraits
of the King and Queen bave evidently been put on
the stone by a good artist. Mr. Bowser announces
his inteotion to publish an Atlas of the Islands and
a "History of tbe Kingdom, a description of the
Hawaiian Race, their manners, customs, ancient re
ligion, their mytba and traditions and their present
condition and prospects,' and an account of the
FauDa and Flora of tbe Islands." If he succeeds in
compiling a reliable volume including in a compact
form all the information thus promised, he will be
very fortunate. Tbe undertaking will not be an
easy one, and if he succeeds in it we hope he will
find his reward in a good sale. We have not noticed
what we think to be the defects of his Directory, be
cause, they are in some measure such as could hard
ly be avoided in a first venture by a stranger. He
must expect however, that the new work which be
bas projected will have to pass through a sharper
ordeal of criticism.
A Droioht-prook Cereal. We take from an
exchange ol recent date the following interesting
account of a cereal wbicb might prove valuable in r
some localities In this Kingdom, the position of
which renders them extremely arid duriusr a larire
part ol tbe year. The attention of the agricul
tural community in America bas lately been at-
racied to a newly-introduced cereal, which is said
to be absolutely drought proof. Tbe Kansas State
Board ot Agriculture is the body which is attempt
ing to awaken an interest in the plant, which has
oeen rouna o oe morotigDiy reliable in the arid
regions which lie between New Mexico and the
borders of the Canadian Dominion. Th
ol thif corn may be briefly stated aa follows :

States from Southern Russia they took with them

five weeks afterwards, germinated freely, and

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Qf" We hear that the Hon. J. M. Kapena h:i?
resigned bis office as tax-collfctor for Koolaupoko
f2P The schooner Honora bas been sold to Mr
A. Frank Cooke. The new purchase is inteuded
for the coasting trade.
f The district postmasters are now receiving
their quarterly salaries, and as there is an increase
over old rate, they must feel richer than usual, not
withstanding the hard times.
The lacteal fluid contained in two wagons
was thrown upon tbe bosom of mother Earth tbe
morning of tbe 17tn inst., a frightened equine and
collision being the cause.
137" Tbe Southern Knight, a paper devoted to
tbe Interests of the Knights ol f yttuas, and print,
ad in New Orleans, has been shown na bv Mr
Dayton and we judge it to be an able moutbpieee
or tne uraer.
It has often been remarked that we lose our
aval visitors precisely at tbe moment when we be
gin to know and appreciate them. The departure of
H. B. M. S. Pelican, recalls former experiences of
this kind. Unfortunately the matter admits of no
remedy, but ought to remind us not to be slack,
when new faces arrive, to make the moat of them
whilst they are amongst as, nor leave all our social
attention until final departure is imminent.
On Wednesday next, at noon, two govern
meat building lots will be offered at auction at the
front entrance of Aliiolani Hale. Tbe lots are num
bered 294 and 265. One fronts Beretania sireet, on
tbe Kulaokabua Plains, not far from the public re
serve in that neighborhood. The other is at the rear
facing another street. The two Iota form one block,
with two frontages of one hundred feet each, and a
depth of 800 feet from street to street
3T A pair of horses, bitched carelessly by a
Chinaman in Chaplain Lane, on Monday evening
broke from their fastenings and made a stampede
for tbe crowded Nuuaniuslreet tboroirgbfare.
Providential interference induced them to run in
to O. Holt's yard, where they- were secured and
kept from doing tbe injury they might have done
if they had dashed through the crowds assembled
in front of Queen Emma's residence. Such careless
ness is criminal.
We learn with regret that the Princess
Kaiulani, the only daughter of the Hon. A. S.
Cleghorn, is serionsly ill from an attack of bron
chitis. On Thursday tbe medical attendant of the
family entertained little hope of her recovery, and
feared that life could lat but a lew hours at the
most. Yesterday inoriiinif. however, tound tbe
young sufferer u little belter, and we hope that
in our next issue we may have the atifaclioa of
reporting that she is in a fair way for recovery.
Tut: Band. The next moonlight concert by
tbe band, will be given at the Hotel Ground!',
on Mouday evening, tbe 20th in.-t.. and will be a
little later in time ot commencemeut tbun usual,
the moon not rising until about 8 o'clock. Fol

performances in tbe Royal Hawaiian Theatre on
the evenings of the ICth and 17th instant. Tbe
tricks introduced by Mr. Xavier, the necromancer
of the duo, were many of them new, and all very
cleverly performed. Mr. Payne, in bis cabinet
performances, was , exceedingly good, and did
many unaccountable tricks while tied band and
feet, although closely watched by a committee
from the audience. To-night another performance
will be given, and will close the' series. Tickets
should be secured early by those desiring seats.
No less than eight drunkards appeared in

Friday morning, and 'were summarily dealt with.
A marine who ought now to be on tbe high seas in
company with bis messmates on tbe H. B. M. S.
Pelican, also put in an appearance ut the Court to
explain under compulsion the circumstances wbicb
led to hia being left behind. It appears that he
was sent on shore on an errand by one of the
officers of the ship, and having found Tbe drinking
saloons of Honolulu more congenial than tbe deck
of the Pelican, bis spirits rose under tbe influence

fST We learn that Col. Claus Spreckela bas paid
to H. H. R. Keelikolani $10,000 for her interests,
if any, in the Crown Lands. An Act of the Legis,
lature. passed on Jnly 7tb, 1848, after reciting tbe
disposition made by the King of the Royal Domain,
declares certain specified lauds " to be the private
lands of His Majesty Kamehameha III. to have and
to hold to himself, his heirs and successors forever'
In an ejectment case, wbicb occuired some little
time ago, tbe Commissioners of Crowa Lands vs.
Jones," counsel for tbe defendant. Mr, Hartwell.
raised the point, that the plaintiffs had no position
before the Court, H. H. R. Keelikolani being as
heir to King Kamehameha V.. the owner of the
land, whiebjformed the subject matter of the action.
The verdict in that case was for the plaintiffs, and
Mr. Hartwell did not press bis point. . A decision
had previously been given by the Supreme Court
as to the position of, these lands, by which it was
unequivocally laid down, that tbey belong to the
occupant oi tbe Throne, whoever he may be.
Kahcsa Vaoasxes. One of the many native
dootresset of the town and whose abilities in curing
the sick have won her a passing fair renown, waa
called in lately to adminialer in ber own peculiar
manner, to tbe wnta of a native woman living
oppoaite Montgomery 1 gquare, and who had buc
combed pro tern, to some of the ills which flesh is
heir to. The first injunction of thui female kahuna
to the patient waa, to obtain sufficient white mate
rial to make a holoku, in wbicb tbe aiok woman waa
to be arrayed preparatory to taking a temporary
flight heavenward. The instructions thus given were
fulfilled, and after donning the counterfeit of the
garments supposed to be worn in the ethereal man
sions, a season of prayer waa inaugurated and lasted
for twenty hours, at the end of which time the aick
woman's leave of absence to mingle spiritually or
physically, in the enjoyments of the realms' above,
waa recalled, and abe being present waa called upon
to recount ber adventures during the time she waa
supposed to be absent. Tbia abe did in a highly in
teresting manner to the large number of listeners,
assembled by the fraAana.'and at the ' end of her re

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
U. R. H. Liliuokalani will receive per schooner
Haleakala, information concerning the illness of the
kiy Rumors of the new Ministries crop out every
hour but we feel warranted in saying that no new
appointment to the Cabinet has been made up to
tms time; but we venture to say that a gentleman
not now here, and whom we think, will satisfy
various shades of opinion, will shortly be invited by
His Majesty to take a part in the Government.
ESP A curious circumstance occurred at the Po

up for furious riding, and daring the hearing of

on sucn a suggestion.
Active rehearsal for the concert we an
nounced last week has, we hear, been in progress
amongst amateurs of the highest talent in Honoln
lu, assisted by late arrivals of rare ability. The
active good will thus shown on the part of the
volunteer performers, promises well for the charac
ter of the concert, and does the greatest credit to
those who have thus kindly and energetically lent
their aid to a praiseworthy cause. We believe that
Tuesday has been fixed for a full rehearsal, and
that the date of the concert will immediately after
wards be announced.
It bas recently been stated by house-brokers
in San Francisco that there are about 6.000
houses to let in that city. The population there
is about 250,000 ; in Honolulu we bave. say
a fifteenth part of that number. If things are in
such a bad state here as some people would have
us believe them to be, we might expect that we
should be on a par with San Francisco in the
matter of vacant bouses. In tbe same proportion.
there would be 400 to let here. As a bouse can
hardly be had for love or money." we think
tbe inference is, that some people have formed
wrong impressions. .
Mr. Montana has lately made an addition
to his premises in Fort Street in tbe form of
photographic show room, which will well repay a
visit. A large number of the productions of his
studio and of other works of art are to be seen
there tastefully arranged and forming a really in
teresting collection. Amongst other additions to
his appliances Mr. Montana some time ago receiv
ed one of Dallmeyer's celebrated lenses of a size
suitable for taking large pictures. We have to ac
knowledge a present from him of a fine picture
measuring ZU inches by 16 of Her Majesty Queen
Dowager Emma. The arrangements for this picture
were prepared with great care by Mr. Montana
himself, the background representing a room of
palatial character. The likeness is striking and the
grouping of the picture excellent. Other likenesses
of Her Majesty with the same surroundings, in
cabinet size, are to be seen (and purchased) at the
show room in tort street.
We . Want to Know What becomes of all
Northwest ami Redwood lumber brought to tbis
market, tbis is au every day remark on the street.
We see the lumber vessels from Puget Sound or
Humboldt daily at our wharves discharging their
immense cargoes, varying from 300,000 to a mil
lion feet, we have been told so often that trade in
this line was fearfully dull, in fact nothing doing
at all; knowing of the many; millions of feet that
had arrived ihu past few weeks, we had the
curiosity to look round u little and see for our
selves, what tbe state of things was We struck
Mesm. Allen & Robinson's yard, which' is per
haps the most convenient establishment of tbe
kind on this, or any other country situated on
their own wharf 'where their lumber vessel dis
charged .and where their fleet of schooners lay to
load, besides an outlet on Fort street and another
on Queen street and any body but a blind man
can see lumber moving any hour of tbe day. It is
true -they hold a heavy stock o the very best
Northwest and Redwood lumber, of ail kinds and
dimensions, bnt "Sam" says they 'sell nothing,
but admitted to giving away since, for charitable
and other purposes, pointing to a schooner load
ing at the. tune, said that was no sale, merely a lot
going to a plantation simply a turn. over, no profit
in it. Lumber bad advanced at the mills $2.50
per 1000. freights bad also advanced that it would
be impossible to go on with the business would
have to discharge help and stop importing.'' , We
would advici; our friends who propose building
to head down towards Robinson's wharf before
Sam " changes his mind to shut up or down for
now is the time to secure , good , lumber at low
figures. ,.' , , '
Tbe congregation of tbe Kaumakapili
Church bave been complaining, as no sign of tbe
commencemeni of the new church, for which libe
ral subscriptions bave been collected. Tlie origi
dal Building Committee consisted of the Revs. M'
Kuaea and M. Hyde, the Hons. C. R. Bishop and
J. Moanauli, and Messrs. II. Waterhou.se. Sam'l
Paniani and Kalauwao. The Committee were
commendably energetic in their canvas for sub
scriptions., and collected about $15,000 for the
building fund. In the application of the money to
practical purposes the congregation deemed them
slack, and at a recent meeting " withdrew their
confidence " from them, appointing their pastor,
the Rev. M. Kuuea. a committee of one, with in
structions to undertake, the building of the new
church as promptly as possible.; The Hsnorable
Mrs. Pauabi Bishop is treasurer of . the building
fund, and the Trustees of the Church will of course
control its expenditure. We believe that the Trus
tees desire to confine the expenditure upon the
new building to lbe amount of cash actually in
band, a view, which, for tbe sake of , tbe city, we
hope tbey will see their way to modify. We un
derstand a plan has been submitted, which has the
approval of tbe pastor of the church, which would
nvolve an outlay about $2,5000. Such a debt as
would thus be created would be no burden to a
arge congregation like ' that of Kaumakapili
Church, and if the necessary advance could not be
obtained, this is the. only city of its size in tbe

Mr. Esitob : Io an issue of the opposition Press
tbe question is asked, " Who put Hia Majesty Kala
kaoa on tht throne 7" And immediately afterwards
comes the answer " Not the - natives.' Indeed !
Perhaps then that paper will be pleased to say who
were the people entrusted with that most important
function of electing a successor to the vacant throne.
1 If natives did not act the principal part in elect
ing the reigning Sovereign, who were the foreigners
that did ? How did they do it T What was the ! in
fluence they used ? How did they manage to induce
the natives who should have elected him to abandon
their places, their duties, their rights What passed
between tbe different parties or races at the time ?
No doubt if the' true history of the election weref
written it would prove highly interesting, and some
curious, if not edifying secrets would come' to light.
If tbe foreigners who, as it is aaid, did elect bim
have been mistaken in their estimate of hia charac-'
ter, and have been1 deceived in their calculations as
to what would follow 'his election, who is to blame
but themselves 7 If he haa turned out different from
what they expected ; and if after repeated trials of
men all playing the same role,' all leading him in the
same direction, he bas summarily dismissed one set
of Ministers after another, native as well as foreign,
because, they acted, on counsels which would bave
caused the ruin oi his country, who shall blame bim I
IJe, like, others, has found the, downward jrourney
easy, and be is qow equally experiencing the diffi
culty, of retracing his uncertain steps from the bogs,
and quicksands among which he has . been, bewder
ed to firm ground and a wholesome atmosphere. He
requires a faithful gold? sritb strengb and determi
nation to rescue him from his perilous position ; and
this is what he is groping for. He is deserving of
sympathy . rather than vituperation, assistance
rather than threats.
But who are these writers that fan a flame which
may consume themselves as well as bim ? Are they
those who have been leading him for years past?
Is their reason this, that he has broken away from
their guidance ? It is not his own people wha have
misled him. The remark was well made by a native
when, as is reported, he was incited to riot at the
meeting of Kaumakapili. " No," said he, " we
tried it once, and were punished for it. Now, if the
foreigners want a change tbey must make it for
The outcry against distrust and hatred is well
but bow did these monsters come into existence ?
By the arts of natives? Assuredly not. By tbe
counsels and doings of some foreigners? Yes. And
it is pretty certain, that on a perfect knowledge of
the facts, tbe verdict of public opinion will not be
favorable to those who are now raising that outcry
Tbe disappointed may make a great commotion,
and may even find some willing cats-paws with
which to endeavor to draw the coveted chestnuts
from tbe fire, but their numbers are small, and their
designs well understood, so that their chances are
small of regaining the vantage ground tbey so long
held, but which through their own acts they have,
it is to be hoped, forever lost.
What is Unconstitutional ?
Mr. Editor : Tbe King and the community, na
tive and foreign, as distinguished from a score or
so cf individuals of a peculiar political stamp, owe
to your enterprise and public spirit a debt they will
find it difficult to pay.
Judging by the homilies, warnings, threats, or
whatever else they may be, wbicb have been lately
published in two of our local papers, which however
represent the same political party, as to the fate that
has befallen British Sovereigcs in times past, and
men in power who acted adversely to the public will,
tbe erudite writers would seem to bave ransacked
English History, or tbe introduction of some history
of constitutional law, in order to enlighten benighted
Hawaiians as to their public duty, and scare the un
accommodating sovereign with a raw-head-aud
bloody-bones, view of what he may expect, if he fail
to fall in with the views of tho6e disappointed politi
cians who dub themselves the people, and seem to
endeavor (o make up by persistency and clamor what
they want in fact and reason.
In the Gazette of the 8th we are told, " Unconsti
tutional Government has never succeeded with an
English speaking people race, and never will."
Quite so. The Gazette' tactics are admirable, aud
its brotherly embrace of tbe whole English speaking
race in the present case, full of pathos and political
fine feeling. But will the Gazette in the plenitude
of its patriotism infotm an expectant public in what
respect the Ccnstitution has been violated by tbe
Sovereigu of these Islands. What has he doncT
How did he do it ? Which is the article of the Con
stitution that has been broken by him alone in his
capacity of King 7 Will the Gazelle point it out that
all the English speaking race on Hawaii may join in
reprobating tbe unholy deed 7 Vague charges may
go down with those who have not time or cannot
trust themselves to form a judgment of their own,
and who consequently surrender their understand
ings to the safe keeping of professional politicians,
but they cannot until proven be received as truths
by those who think for themselves.
Why ! it is fresh in the memory of all that the
late Attorney General in tbe debate on the much
abused motion of want of confidence told the Assem
bly that " he stood up to support tbe King's prerog
ative which was to select his own Cabinet, and as
long as that Assembly saw the Ministry . in their
places, it might be assured that that Ministry had
the confidence of the Sovereign." And looking to tbe
Constitution we find the following words in the 42nd
Article : " They (the Ministers) shall be appointed
and commissioned by the King, and hold office during
His Majesty's pleasure, subject to impeachment," so
that it appears tbe Attorney General was quite
right, and if so, the Gazette must be altogether
wrong in this charge of unconstitutional government,
not as to its statement of the law, but as to Ut want
of facts, on which to base a judgment. If al! this be
true, the Gazette is seeking to enlist sympathizers
and partisans under false pretences, it is flaunting
a flag it has no right to fly it has presented an in
dictment void of solid foundation, and in defending
it, may pour forth torrents of inflammatory eloquence,
volames of burning words; but as they want the ring
of the true metal, and are unsupported by evidence
they must be rejected as "Brummagem ware," or if
taken notice of, only that their bollowness be exposed
so that no one may be deceived by them.
. If the writer read matters aright, however, tbe
Constitution . has been violated systematically aud
continuously for years past; but not by tbe Sovereign
alone. It is not his unaided act. Why we have an
example of such violation at tbis very instant before
our eyes. aThe 20th Article of the Constitution reads
as follows : , " Tbe Supreme Power of tbe Kingdom,
in its exeroise, is divided into the Executive, Legis
lative and Judicial; these shall always be preserved
distinct." Have tbey been so preserved? Why the
irst Associate Justice of the Supreme Court is, and
for the last two years has keen, a member of the Ex
ecutive Board of Immigration. How is tbis? Is the
appointment of one of the highest judicial officers to
an executive office in consonance with the provisions
of the Constitution or not ? If it be, well and good;
but if not, whose is the fault ? Let it not be said
that it lies with the unfortunate and misguided Sov
ereign. No ! Let the odium fall where it belongs,
and there let it remain, with his responsible Consti
tutional Advisers. Lex
; CRICKET MATCH.
H. B. M. S. Pelican v. Honolulu Cricket Club.
A match waa played last Saturday afternoon be
tween a team from II. B. M. S. Pelican and the first
eleven of the Honolulu Cricket Club. Tbis is tbe
first match that has been played under the auspices
of the Club, and as it is now some years since one
was played here before, it excited considerable inter
est, a large group of spectators assembling early
and remaining till near the close. Amongst these
we were glad to notice that tbe fair sex was well
Tbe Cricket ground is on tbe Reserve beyond tbe
ate residence of Major Wodebouse, some pains has
already been taken with the ground, and we hope
that the Club will find Itself a position (financially)
to complete the work that bas been begun. To this
end the dollars of a number of honorary members
would no doubt be found acceptable and we hope
that from amongst those who love the game, a good
many subscriptions will be forthcoming.
The wickets were pitched at 2 p.m. and play was
punctually commenced, the Pelican eleven taking the
field, their bowlers were G. Jones and WWte, the
latter of whom proved himself a formidable trun
dler, althongh unfortunately for his side, be was not
careful enough in avoiding tbe provoking cry of "no
ball." For Honolulu Lisbman and Freeth went to
the wickets and were very unfortunate, Lisbman
was caught at poin. by Gifford the first ball he
played. ' Miller took his place and immediately
afterwards Freeth saw bis bails scattered and was
replaced by Perry who commenced scoring at once
by sending one from White to tbe slips for 1.
Miller then made a similar score. Perry now began
to afford the field some leatherhunting; first with a
drive to the off for 1, then putting the ball to leg
for 4,' following with a drive to the on for 1. The
next score to leg for 1 he almost hesitated too long to
secure. . In the next over be sent the ball to mid off
for two, giving a chance which . however was not
easy and was not tried for. He sent the next ball
with greater care on the same direction and with, tbe
same result. 'Xn the next over he ekved. one which
was muffed by White and secured a. ru,n for it.
Miller now began to. score sending one from Jones to
leg through the fence, which, by arrangement scored
Sand he and Perry, continued to make runs lyitil,
White neatly took his wicket He retired with a
score of 8; three wickets down tor 27. ( Scrimgeoux
took bis place but had to retire without Improving
the score, a crooked one from White finding the
weak place of his defence. Janion now went in and
soon put tbe ball to leg for 1, following with a drive
to the off for 2. In the next over, Perry played one
from White on to his wicket, ending a innings
played in very good form with a score of 15 5 wickets
for 33. Holdsworth took bis ph ec and quickly
broke his duck's egg by sending White to the off for
1, but in the next over he lost his wicket in the
same manner as Perry. Mean while Janion had
made two fine drives to tbe oil for 2 ond 8 respec
tively. Wodehouse joined him aud after playing sev
eral balls with care stole a run for one which he
had put to leg. He and Janion now scored alternate
ly, the latter among other hits making a fine drive to
mid wicket for 2. He sent his next ball up and it was
carefully secured by Giffard whose fielding through
out the match was deserving ol the higbeat praiae,
Janion's score was 13 C wickets for 02. Doweett
took the vacant place aud after seeing Wodebouse let
off what should have been a certain catch, took
heart of grace und began to score himself imme
diately after wbiob Wode bouse tent Jones to leg finely
for 3. Dowsett then raised a ball which was clever
ly tried for but not secured, and Wodehouse was
again let off at square log. The bowlers however
made amends for the slack fielding by taking their
wickets in rapid succession 8 for 60 Luce and May
taking their places. The latter after facing two or
three balls from White without scoiing unluckily
touched a ball he should have let alone, which found
its way into the hands of the vigilant Gifjard, ending
the innings of the team.
After a brief interval Puddick and Congram went
in to face the bowling of Perry and Holdsworth.
The score waa commenced by a run for a bye and
immediately afterwarda Congram sent the first ball
he played towards Freeth who did not refuse the
chance. Dillon the Captain of tbe Pelican's team,
took his place and bad the chagrin cf seeing Pud
dick sky one of Holdaworth's which was caught by
Wodehouse, and Jones's wickets go down before a
straight one, also from Holdsworth, before bo him
self broke the ice by a good hit for which be scored
one. Giffard had taken Jones's place and opened hia
score by sending the ball to mid off for 2. Dillon
made a run for one off bis glove and Giffard again
made a score for a badly fielded bull. Dillon skyed
a ball in each of the next two overs but iu directions
on which no one was ready to hold it in cither case.
After he had made another run i-onie time passed
without any scoring after which he t-eut one to leg
for a single. Giflard was then given out leg before
wicket a contretemps which did much to render the
match a hollow one, as he was cvidoutly sot for a
good score. Turner took his place and Dillou pre
sently sent tbe ball finely to mid on. For this a
score of six was made the ball being lost. He tried
to repeat tbe feat but only pec u red a single aud waa
immediately afterwards neatly caught by Perry,
Freeth being tbe bowler. Barker now went in aud
soon begun to score, seudiug the bull to uiid wicket
twice for a single each time. Turin r then got a ball
to leg for 1 aud Barker did the en me twice fu succes
sion. Iu the next over he had a narrow escape from
being caught out, too many hands being out for the
ball, after which lie made a good drive to the on for
2, Turuer did the tamo ond then Porry took Barker's
wicket. Hill took his place aid through a mistake
let Turner be run out. White followed at the wicket
and two runs were secured for the second bye of the
iuniugs, after which Hill scored one for a good hit,
the ball being very promptly fielded. He was short
ly after caught by Lishmun, and Pratt took his
place. White soon skyed one of Frocth'a which the
bowler took. Smith followed and after sooriug oue
was stumped by Scrimgeour which ended tho innings,
the total score being only 39.
In the second innings of the Honolulu team,
Miller aud Luce went on first to face the same bow
ling na before. White eent 3 "no balls" in tbe
first over aud was taken off for one or two overs.
Dillon taking his place. Luce then gave two chances
in succession which were both missed and was after
twice scoring singles bowled by Jones. Perry went
in and soon lust his partner Miller who after making
one score was bowled by White, Scrimgeour 'now
went in and Perry got a run for a neat cut, after
which Sci itngeour slogged one of Jones's for 3 and
again sent the ball to leg for 2. Perry showed some
good cricket making a tine drive to the od for 2. He
then seemed disposed to value the field too lightly
and was ut first very lucky, but was presently
caught by White (from his own bowling) and retired
with a score of 9. Freeth uow went in and Sorlm-
geour drove White to the on for three nearly running
himself out for the last run. Jones shortly after
wards took Sctiingeour'8 wicket with a fine ball aud
tbe Captain retired with a score of 12. Lisbman
took the bat and immediately began to score. By
this time the field was decidedly demoralized ant
of practice rendering the Pelican's team much in
ferior to their opponents in this 'particular, Freeth
sent a ball from Jones to leg for 2., but put the next
straight into White's hands retiring with a score of
5 five wickets for SC. Ifoldswoitb now 'joined
Lisbman and both t-coreJ freely, the litter making a
fine drove for 8 Presently Lislmmn 'repeated
Freeth's mistake and White did not let him off.
Wodehouse took his place and tnude a run from his
first ball. Holdsworth then drove the bajl finely to
the on for 3 and was coon after bowled by White.
May followed at the wicket to meet a like fate with
out having broken bis " duck's egg " n Me to which
be wus &iilic qm-tiily followed by Dowsett. Mean
while Wodehouse made uu occasional S'-oro and after
beng joined by Dowsett made a fine bit for 2, and was
then bowled by Barker who had r Tiered Jones.
Janion now went in and had scored 8 before Dow
sett's wicket fell. The total score was 78 which in
cluded no Ies than 11 extras. - . - , ..
The batting of Janion. Perry, Holdsworth, Miller
for the Honolulu team showed that they have been
trained in good schools , and ', that with ' renewed
practice they will be formidable opponents to any
visiting team. Of those to whom the game is new
Wodebouse roust be singled out as one who promises
to become nn excellent cricketer. He divtioguisbed
himself on Saturday both with the bat and iu the field.
Baseball practice no doubt Hood the Honolulu team
in good stead. The superiority of tueir fielding
over that of their opponents being very marked. ' For
he Pelican'a team Dillon und Barter each made, a
good stand at the wicket, showing excelleut form.
Giflard's fielding was admirable, and White would
be and excellent bowler but for want of care in con
forming to rules. Had ha (beB j eti ictly dealt with
by tbe umpires a good many more " no balls "
would have been scored against him.
The Rev. Mr. Mackintosh wus umpire for the Ho
nolulu team, and M. Ratard undertook the scoring.
The post of umpire for the visitors was filled in suc
cession by members of the club an awkward ar
rangement which was unfortunately unavoidable-.
For waut of an orthodox scoring book no record of
the bowling was kept so that we have been obliged
to emit the usual analysis. The following are tb
