THE KING'S TOUR AROUND
His Majesty had a pleasant and interest
ing trip per " City ot Sydney." The
company on board was highly scientific.
"Professsr Proctor discoursed to the KiDg
and other fellow passengers upon "Star
depths," which have systems "inhabited
by beings of greater importance than any
that can be developed around our sun ;" (of
which beings we would like to get an
inkling, as to size and capacity) and he
gave ample assurances, that many remark
able planetary conjunctions of this ill
omened year, cannot have any appreciable
terrestrial influence; which was consoling
to islanders on board, satisfying their
minds that they would find their fast
anchored Archipelago on their return just
where they left it. And there was another
scientist on board, Professor W. u Carpen
ter, who enlightened the royal party and
other fellow travellers, with his views and
exiierienees in relation to ea depths and
temperatures of the ocean ; in which ho
explained the laws aflectihg Gulf streams
and ocean currents, and all the natural
phenomena of our quasi aqueous globe. I le
presented highly, interesting illustrations
pf the iunfsorial life, which he collected
from the ooze of the ocean's bed at depths
of three, four and five miles, wlren he
sailed with our friend Sir Wyville Thomp
son on board the Challenger. Jle had some
of our globigerinie to show, those infinitesi
mal Crustacea? which a pin point may
cover, and are hardly visible to the naked
eye; yet reveal to the microscope a shelly
buckler upon which may be counted over
eight hundred bosses each covered with a
multitude of figures and corrugations.
After one scientist had shown His Majesty
remote suns so many hundreds of million
miles farther away from us than our own
sun, and so many thousands of millions of
miles bigger than our own gWje, it was
well that there was another scientist to
bring the King back to the earth, ami
mentally plunging with him into t lie
depths, could there reveal the infinite'
small,, ami bring the royal mind to a line
To relieve this heavy stain of science, a
vocalist on board (CJ. Darrell, llsq.,) contri
buted some strains of song of love and war
for the entertainment of his fellow passen
gers. And then comes the genial, social
and able Captain Dearborn, to add an in
spiring word, and a cheering assurance, to
make the King and all his cabin happy.
We are assured by several friends on
board during the trip, the voyage in respect
to weather, and all the circumstances on
board was an exceedingly pleasant one.
The King enjoj-ed himself in his usual
cheerful and dignified way, ami seems to
have won only golden opinions from all his
On the morning of Thursday the !d
January, the City of Sydney steamed away
from Honolulu with the royal party ; and
on the afternoon of Saturday the 20th, she
steamed into the harbor within the Golden
Gate. And now we will quote from the
chroniclers of San Francisco and Sacra
mento, other particulars attending the
King's tour round the world.
Advent of His Majesty of the Sandwich
King Kalakaua Again With Us.
A Trip Aeolxd the World Ixcoomto Incidents
of His Leaving Home Objects or
His Mijcsty the KiDg of the Hawaiian Islands
(traveling incog, as Alii or Prince Kalakaua) arriv
ed last eveuing by the steamer City of SyJnejr and
proceeJed to the Palace. He ia accompanied by his
Buite. viz.: William Nevins Armstrong, Attorney
General, and Colonel C. II. Judd, Chamberlain to
His Majesty. ColoneGeorgc W. Macfarlane is also
of the party, but remains in San Francisco to attend
to some business affui s, tut tbe rest of the party
leave on the next China steamer en a tour of tbe
world. His Majesty will decline any public atten
tions, as Le is traveling for his health. The King
declined to be interviewed last evening, owing to the
fatigue consequent upon bis journey. From mem
bers ol his staB and others, however, many interest
ing facts were gleaned. He does not come as a king,
but is traveling inccgoi o, with very few ailendauts
and by no means a heivy purse.
Some sharp things have been said about him on
account of his patronage of Celsj C. Moreno. Iiut
Moreno is at tbe other tide cf tbe world now, and for
some lime past the political afliirs of tbe kingdom
Lave been running quite as smoothly as is good for
bis subjects in fact tbey ratber miss tbe excitement
tbey were enjoying during the time of the Moreno
avatar, and for tome few weeks after be turned his
back upon them. Tbe King made a tour of tbe
t&l'iuds before leaving, and was received both by
natives and foreigners in tbe most cordial way. and
was treated everywhere like the good fellow he is.
For, however little some of his ideas suit the white
foreigners whom be numbers among bis subjects,
they almost all like h m personally. Many of them
knew him in bis youth, and respect bim both for bis
intelligence and for bis amiable character. He his
the art, not common with kings (or knowD to a good
many political chiefs iu countries that kuow no
king), of miking every one like him whom he
comes in contact with ; and, in tpite'of the uproar
his petting of Moreno cau-ed, and of all the bard
tbiogs tbit were said of bim a that time, I e seems
now to be as popular as ever. At a dinner given to
bim one evening recently by his Ministers, bis en
trance and bis little speech in response to the toast
of the evening were received in a manner evidently
intended to be marked. Nearly every one of any
note in Honolulu was present. This was such a con
trast to tbe state of feeling & few months ago that
it was evident that his popularity was deep-rooted,
and tbe passing storm of anger merely one of those
outbursts which we are more apt to indulge in to
wards some one we have an affection for when he
vexes us than towards one who is indifferent. This
tripoftho King's, which is to be a voyage around
tbe world, was opposed by tbe Ministers, but tbey
found be bad set bis heart upon it and bo gave way.
The only mistake about it was that it was not long
enough premeditated, and that in consequence no
proper provision fo his expenses has been m-tde.
It is not o be a pleasure trip, although to a man of
Kalakaui'd turn of mind even a business voyage
round the world cannot fail to be one of pleasure.
He thinks that be can both learn something and do
something while be is away to benefit his kingdom.
He wants to see the population of the Islands in
creased and be goes to find out how this cin-bet be
managed- The chief accessions to tbe population ot
tbe Islands for years past have been Chiuese Unfor
tunately tbe sugar and ric- plantations cannot be
carried on without them, unless some eligible substi
tute can be discovered. They hare been trying to
get other Polynesians there from the islands to the
southwest, but that field does not stem to be a good
one for immigration agents, and nothing like the
numbers wanted will ever be forthcoming from
thence. Certain parties are clamorous to have the
Government go farther afield and try the Malay
Archipelago and British India for coolies.
FIRST TO CHINA.
The Kitg's first visits are to be paid to China, the
Straits' Settlements and India. Hia Attorney-General
has resigned his post. nd goes with him as a
Commissioner of Immigration; and they will togeth
er try to find out whether Chinese women can be
persuaded to go and m ike decent citizens of their
coontrymen in the islands, and whether hese fields
of Malaysia and India are really likely to be of use
for supplies of labor and of ft new population to till
the land once occupied by tbe now wasted Hawaiian
race. From India be goes by wy of Suez to France
and England and thence to the United States. One
of the King's , main objects in this journey is t
strengthen the tie which already binds his peonl
commercially with the United States, and to insufe
renewal of the reciprocity treaty. He had a hand in
negotiation oltliit treaty, aud notwithstanding a
that has been siiJ about anti-AmcricaD his proclivi
ties there is no event of his reign in which he takes
r pride th:in in that negotiation, and nothing
puts a higher valus upon, as making for bis
iuglora's welfare, than the treaty itself.
King Kalakaua Entertained at the Pacific
Yacht Clnb House.
Althouzh His Majesty, King Kalakaua. did not
come here in bis official capacity, he has reeicved
attentions from our citizens as numerous as on
his previous visit six years ago.
The distinguished visitors have no cause to com
plain of the hospitality of their friends in this city
as the latter apparently vie with one another in their
attentions to the King and bis suite. The fact that
His Majesty is travelling incognito has been taken
advantage of by some of bis friends to give entertain
ments which they believe will be of special interest
to him when formality, due to a King, but which
can be waived in the person of a Prince, does not
interfere with th pleasures or tneir guests auch
an aflair took place yesterday afternoon, when
Commodore R. S. Floyd, of the Pacific Yacht Club,
cave an intormal entertainment in honor of His
Majvsty. Commodore Floyd is one of t'lose gentlemen
who has enjoyed several yearB of warm personal
friendship with King Kalakaua, and yesterday he
invited tbe latter to a sail on tbe bay and a dinner
at the Club Houe, near Siucelito. Invitations were
extended to about thirty gentlemen, all friends and
accquaiantances of the King and members or tbe
Pacific Club, to participate in the excursion arranged
for the honored guest. The tug Mi'.leu Griffith,
under command ol Captain Haskell, was chartered
to convey the guests to Siucelito, owing to the un-
ctrtanty of the winds at this Eeason of tbe year. An
awning was stretched over the deck of the steamer
and canvas placed around ar.d above the guards to
protect tbe guests from the wind, while cushioned
seats were supplied for their accomodation. The
Hawaiian national ard other flags floated from the
THE TRIP ACROSS THE BAY,
Shortly before noou. King Kalakaua. acconi-anieJ
by Colonel Jud J, drove down to the Pacific Mail
Company's wharf and embarked on board tbe
steamer, where they were welcomed by Commander
Floyd. Here His Majesty found a company of
accquaintauces, among whom were : Commodore
MacDonougb, Commodore T. H. Allen, Captain
Stewart Menzies, Admiral Con O'Connor, William
Sherman, Sub-Tieasurer ; J. W. DrowD, Commander
J. V. Coleman. G. J. Uenuy, tbe artist : Captain F.
Fraz r, Charles M. Plnm, Sands W. Foreman.
George .M. Pixley, Henry G. Langly, Captain Kelley,
Lieutenaut-Comiunnder J. J E. Hawkins, Captain
Ktlley. George 11. Malter. M. E Knopt an J J. N. H.
Irwin. The lines weie thrown off. and the band
played while the steamer headed for the centre of the
stream. As the vessel passed along the wharves,
persons on the different vessels saluted the tug, and
dipped I heir flags. The new bulkhead was closely
exumiued by the King, and then a run across the
bay was made in a short time. On approaching the
wharf of the Pacific Yacht Club, the scene was a
beautiful one, and greatly enjoyed by all. The
yachts Ariel, owned by Cortnodore Floyd, and The
Cousins, the property of Messrs. Menzies, Coleman
O'Connor and Hawkins, were aily decked with
signal flags, while the National ensign and other
buuting were di.-played on the club house. The
party disembarked aud walked to the house on the
bill, where half an hour was sp nt in examining the
buildings and surrouudi::gs. The King was par
ticularly struck with the location, and expressed
himself warmly at the elegance, taste and comfort
discernible in the club house and the grounds. The
elegant oil marine paiuting, recently presented to
the club by Mr. JJenny, was critically examined.
and favorably commented upon. Tbe guests then
sat down to
AS ELEGANT DINNER
Set ved in the iu iiu room, Commodore Floyd sitting
at the bead of the table and Vice-Commodore Mac
Donough at the other end. At the right of the
former was seated 1 1 is Majesty, and Colonel Judd
occupied a beat on the left of the host. Owing to the
fact that the King had an uppointrr ent in the city
at five o'clock, the different courses (about a dozen
in number) were partaken of rapidly, while cham
pagne in unlimited quantities was served to the
gues's. During dessert, Captain Menzies announced
that at a meeting of the Board of Directors, held on
Ihmsday evening, His Mtjesty and Colonel Judd
were unanimously elected honorary members of the
Club which announcement was received with cheers.
Cpt. Menzies took occasion to express the honor the
members of the Club felt in entertaining such a
distinguished guest, and proposed the tonst.of His
Majesty. King Kalakaua. lbe King responded
briefly, returning thanks to Commodore Floyd and
the members of the Pacific lacht Club lor tbe
elejrant entertainment and for their action in electing
fui a member of the Club which he considered a
great honor, aud would always lemember the whole
affair as one of the most pleasant incidents of his
visit to San Francisco. He also expressed the hope
that on his return next August that he would again
have the pleasure of meeting the members of tbe
Club on such an occasion, with the additional
attraction of the presence of the ladies. His remarks
were warmly applauded, and at their conclusion
rousing cheers were given.
YTh- Chinese Consul-General entertained King
Kalakaua with a dinner at the Hang Fer Low
'restaurant, the Delminico of Chinatown, last even
ing. In a Celestial way it was a very swll affair.
All the nobs of Chii.atown were there in their best
bib nd tuckeis The compnny outside of the state
table iucluded the President and Secretary of each ot
the nine Chinese Benevolent Associations of the city
and all of the rich wholesale merchants, to the num
ber of sixty. They wore an extraordinary costume
for tho occasion, being dressed in mandarin rank,
with buttons and other insignia to denote their stand
ing. The buttons are worn in their caps, the color
denoting the rank of their blue-blood wearers. Tbe
majority wore tbe crystal button, a few tbe red, the
latter indicating the bluest of the blue bloods. The
restaurant, which is orientally gorgeous in its ap
pointments, was splendidly decorated for the occa
t,ion, and its usual display of gas jets being supple
mented with an abundance of large vari-colored lan
terns of paper and bamboo, gave it a brilliant aspect
viewed from the street or the surrounding houses.
The royal table was spread in the email room of the
restaurant, which was specially dressed for the
. THE GUESTS.
On the will at the foct of the table, facing the
Consul-General, who presided, were festooned the
American, Chinese and Hawaiiau flags Around tbe
regal board were gathered the King, the Consul, the
priucipal members of the Consulate, the traveling
companions of the King, and such of our citizens as
were invited. On the landing they were drawn ap
in a Hue and the Chinese, after making a concerted
silaam and shaking each bis own band, after their
sociable custom, were brought forward and each in
turn was presented to tbe King, shaking his hand
and passing to each member of the party. This little
recention. in which tbe Chiuese showed an eas.
polished puliteness, over.the festal party wereeeate
Tiio npronns named above were seated at the brate
table, the others in the adjoining room about little
square tables, each accomodating five guests, the
outer side of the table being left unoccupied in order
that its hanging of .rich crimsou satin with gold
embroidery might be shown to advautage.
The names given to the various dishes were hard
ones, but the viands proved not only less repulsive,
but positively toothsome. There was a great variety
of dishes, all palatable, cooked with art, and served
in uuexcept onable etyle, and when their composition
was rendered into English.tbere wusdiscovered noth
he mot fastidious of civilize 1 stomachs.
TTue feast was what is den minated a mandarin
Adinner, and in the costliness, rarity and delicacy
of viauds, has not been exceeded oy any iesnvity mai
has ever taken place on this coast. The tables stood
all tbe evening, before, during and after the dinner,
loaded with nuts, melon seeds, confections and fresh
froits, at which tbe guests nibbled continually.
First, by way of appetizer for the feast, was brought
on in small teapots a delicate wine after the order of
sherr" but milder, a subtle distillation of the Chinese
pear,"which was served in thimble cups. Then tol
lowed a s-uip of edible birds nests. Next was a
soup or stew made f a snow white fungus that grows
i on decaying wood.
CALIFORNIA SHARKS FINS.
The next dish was a delicious conglomeration of
fish brain, thredded ham and preserved egg slices,
followed by a stew made of mushrooms.young chicken,
tender bamhoo shoots, sliced ham and cabbage. A
dish of sharks' fins with shredded bam and fragments
of crab rolled in flour and pulverized egg, w s next
on the list. The Chinese exponent at the reporter's
elbow said that these weie the fins of California
eharks which were larger and preferable on other
accounts to the propeller of the Chinese shark, and
that the business of taking sharks here and shipping
their fins to China was becoming quite a large one
Among the other temptioir dishes were a mess of
fisheai maw. and stewed wild duck on a substratum
of edible birds nests. After an hour and a half's
feasting the wine was removed, giving place to a cup
of genuine Oolong finely brewed, and which was
used without milk and sugar to wash down the
sweetmeats and conserves, which concluded the first
part of the dinner.
An intermission of half an hour was then taken
during which tbe guests repaired to the smoking
rooms and balcoDy to chat over their navanas.which
by the way, were the genuine article. The conver
Bition was carried on busily but quietly and deco
rously, both outside and around the board, without
the noisy chatter of all talking and none listening
which characterizes the social intercourse of the lower
classes of Chinamen. After intermission the com
pany resumed their seats, and over their champagne
discussed another feast as intricate and ingenious ns
the first, including chicken, mushroom and turtle
the latter cooked to perfection! The feasting done,
Colonel Bee arose, and orfBehalf of the Consul-
General proposed the health of the King, saying that
the entertainment had been devised from a desire to
show him some cf the inner life of the Chinese, and
to wish him a prosperous and pleasant journey. They
desire that the three fligs entwined on the wall
should represent tie three countries which the Pacific
ocean divided, yet brought close together, joined in
amity for all time; that tbey might go hand in hand,
prosperous in all the arts and sciences, civilization,
and everything that .makes nations and people great
THE KING'S SENTIMENTS.
Colonel Armstrong responded for the King, saying,
" Ilis Majesty fully reciprocates the very kind feel
ing which you have expressed on behalf of the Con
sul-General, not only as regards the relations that
now exists between the three nationalities which you
have mentioned and whose nags are above us, but
also as to the relations that shall exist in the time to
come between these nations. I am proud to say for
hitu and the Government of ibe nation which we
reprer-rnt, that iu all our intercourse with the people
of China we have made no distinction whatever in
regard lo nationality. We have the right to say that
the Court.- I'leic are open to all and justice is as well
aJministeri-1 toward the Chinese subjects as towards
bis own subjects. " Ibis was illustrate 1 by a state
ment of a recent case in which on nearly evenly
balanced testimouy, a Hawaiian was convicted of
larceny at the Islands on the evidence of Chinese. In
conclusion. Colonel Armstrong proposed tbe healih
of the Consul-General, which was drank standing
Short speeches were made by Mr Brooks and General
.McDowell, and quite a long one by Governor how,
all in response to volunteer sentiments. A sip of
tea and another of sara-shu and the company arose,
the King and his party departed, leaving the Chinese
chatting with evident satisfaction of the evening s

nance bore a genial expression, and the impression
that one could get from a brief glance at the royal
gentleman would be decidedly a favorable one.
TaKING IN THE TOWN.
The royal party were accompanied from San
Francisco by Hon. Claus Sprecklesand Mr. Schussler,
the well-known civil engineer. Carriages were iu
waiting for them, to which they were promptly con
ducted and driven rapidly to the Capitol, where an
informal visit was paid to His Excellency Governor
Perkins, and a brief time was spent in pleasant con
versation. Apartments had been secured tor the
party at the Arcade Hotel, to which they repaired
t the conclusion of their visit to the Governor, the
accompanying them, the latter having accepted an
invitation from his Majesty to dine with uim. An
elegant dinner was partaken of, after which the
King expressed a desire to visit a theatre, and it was
accordingly arranged that tbe party should drop in
at the Capital Varieties the only place of amusement
now open in this city, where three private boxes
were placed at their disposal. During the evening
several calls were made upon prominent citizens, his
Majesty retiring a little before midnight.
To-day the party again visited the Estate Capitol,
and spent considerable time on the floor of each
House, in the procet dings of which they seemed to
take much interest.

FIRST BALL AT THE PALACE
WITHIN TWO YEARS.
A Brilliant Affair Magnificently Con

THE KECEPTIOX AT THE PALACE.
His Majesty, Kin Knlakaua, of the Hawaiian
Islands, lias ttie good taste to confess a weakness
for the society of the fair sex, and lias frequently
ntiuiateu a desire to attend a dancing party
whare lie might witness the eubtle motions of the
waltz to his heart's content. Indeed, a sele t
ball in the metropolis of the Pacific is a siht cal
culated to till with emotions one even more accus
tomed to the ternsicliorean revels of the elite of
San Francisco than is bis Majesty of sunny Ha
waii. Agreeable to his expressed wish, and that
bis last evening in California might be filled with
pleasant memories, the ladies ol the Palace Hotel
determined to tender to the jolly monarch a re
ception in the parlors of the hotel, ere be depart
ed upon bis tedious ocean voyage to the Flowery
Kingdom. Gijzantie efforts were put forth by
the ladies, and evry thing done that could add one

ARRIVAL OF THE CUESTS.
The cuests began to arrive by nine o'clock,
and were received by the ladies of the Reception
Committee, of whom Mrs. Newlands was unfor
tunately aud unavoidably absent. The Commit
tee present were Mrs. John S. lla-jer, Mrs. V.
II. L. Barnes, Mrs. Lugsain, Mrs. Henry Scinie
dell, and Mrs. Kinsey. The guests were all in
full evening dress, the toilets displayed by the
ladies being tbe most brilliant ever worn at a
reception in San Francisco. Among the gentle
men a cumber of military and naval uniform,
with here and there one of tbe Diplomatic Ser
vice, served to break the monotony of sombre
black dress suits, and added much to the general
gorgeous effect. That none but tbe elect might
obtain entranee within the sacred precincts of the
reception salons, a pretty arrangement of pink
was placed as a barrier at each side of the great
corridor in front of the pallors. The entrances
were guarded by dusky Cerberuses, iu white
neckties and dress suits, who were prepared to
visit fearful punienments upon he who should

who were congregated in tbe balconies. To ade

great white Ealons would l?e a task beyond the

all that rich funnture, costly IiaDgings, lare

A ROYAL VIRTVE.
That a King should be punctual, actually and
absolutely punctual, is a kingly trait that sli 'i'M
be extensively cultivated. theater and party
coers. diners out, and notable cuets might ie
kingly iu this respect, with credit to themselves
and delight to all others concerned. It is a cun
oub fact that although it was definitely announced
in the invitations, and in the society column of
Monday's Chromcle, that the King would arrive
at 10 o clock, no one looked for bun at that hour.
so accustomed are people crownnot to expect
special society events to occur within nn hour or
two of the announced time. It was, therefore,
a surprise to every one some seemed to take it
in the nature of a breacli of social ethics when
exactly at the appointed hour, the Kin entered
the main parlor and stotd by the side of Mrs. J.
S. lluger, bowing pleasantly to those who recog
nized him. The amazed orchestra hastily attuned
its strings and pipes to the strains of th Hawaii
an national antliem. This announced his p:ee
ence to all, and for the nest half hour he received
those who pressed decorously forward to be pre
sented by General V. 11. L. Uarncs.
The reception will long be remembered by the
fortunate guests who were permitted to witness
this, one of the grandest social events in the his
tory of the city. A flutter of excitement wns

honorable attention ; and as the San
