The long promised concert la aid of tbe .new
High School which is being- built oa the props rty
lately belonging to Mrs. Armstrong, is we ondersu aid
fixed for Saturday evening, 13th November. Ia the
absence of Mr. Berger we believe that the pro
gramme of the concert Is not definitely fixed. Ia
additioa to the talent already secured, which includes
the most favorite lady aad gentlemaa amateurs al
ready known to the public besides several Teoent
arrivals, the members of tbe Committee have been,
fortunate enough to secure the assistance of Mrs
Pierce, a late arrival from Saa Francisco who pos
sess a lovely and cultured soprano voice. We had
lately the pleasure of hearing another of the pro
mised performers Miss Clarke, a pupil of the well:
kaowa 8ignor Carmlni. Morley, best known to the
musical world as the composer of the opera Dux
Spoti. (The Two Brides). Miss Clarke has been in
defatigable ia her endeavors to reader this concert a
success by the pains she has taken in assisting and,
accompanying the different performer at their re
hearsals. We bsve heard that Mrs. Paty, whosw
voice has once aad again enchanted our Hawaiian
connoisseurs has consented to add a ballad to the at
tractions of the concert; courtesy which will we
feel sure be highly sppreciated by tbe publio of Ho
aolulo. With such talent aad with a halt like that
of the new school which has been expressly contrived
to secure acoustic success tbe concert will be one or
the most attractive that it has ever been the privi
lege of Honolulu people to listen to. A special com
mittee has been formed to see to the decoration and
lighting of the room and the Wununatioo of tbe
lovely grounds which fona an approach to it. The

The raising of the loan is to be entrusted to the

The natives of Nai Sogo, a town below the

blessings of everlasting taxation and unlimited
lala, and in the hops ot escaping the 'benignant
influence, have deserted their houses and bolted
en masse to a powerful mountain tribo known as
tbe Kai na Drau. A force of officers was of
course sent after them, to convince them of their
error, and induce their return. Late-arrivals
report that these officers have been away a fort
night, and have not reappeared, and public
opinion is divided as to whether the officers have
deserted to tbe ranks of the Kai nai Sogo, or the
Kai nai Sogo have cooked and eaten the officers.

two Tanna men in her, tie and two white men

struggle, bound them band rind loot. Having no
weapons of any kind on board with them, they
