La" Letters from Wailuku state that on Fri
day night lfith inst. a foreigner who has been in
business there as a barber committed suicide bv
shooting himself through the head with a pistol.
When the unfortunate man was found he was
quite dead, and the pistol with which he had put
an end to himself still clutched in his right
hand. The deceased was highly esteemed by all
who knew him, and nothing is known as to the
causes which have led to this unfortunate event.

BQ What may happen to the "unprotected
femala " iu San Francisco in broad daylight is
shown by the following incident which occurred
there on the 12th inst: "Two ladies who
alighted from a Market street dummy Monday
afternoon were followed down Seventeenth street
by a lusty hoodlum, who kept up a signal cor
respondence with two confederates iu a buggy
until Sanchez street was reached. Hero the
thoroughfare was almost entirely deserted, Mad
after glancing around to assur himself of nun-
interruption, the fellow who was on foot made a
sadden clutch at the purses the ladies carried in
their hands. He "was successful in obtaining
one, after which he hastily jumped into the
buggy driven by his pals, which rapidly turned
the corner aud disappeared before the ladies
could summon assistance. The purse contained
between $40 and $50.
iy On Wednesday Kewiki, w., was charged
with giving liquor to native Hawaiians. Accord
ing to the evideuce she went to the house of Ha-
leokamanu, w., at Cape Horn and asked for
something to eat, and then got Haleokamanu to
fetch a bottle of gin for which she found the
money. They and another woman named Ana
drank the gin, which made them intoxicated.
Ana's husband found her drunk and gave her in
charge, and she and Haleokamanu were wit
nesses in this prosecution of Kewiki. The Mag
istrate very properly dismissed the case. If it
I i intended to prevent Hawaiians drinking liquor
the only way will be to treat them as the Chinese
are about their opium. The l.iw as it stand i is
little better than a farce, and appears to be only
put iu motion when some native has a spite
against an offender.

Akana, and the man who had received the watch,
were sent together to Kohala, but did not suc

that he had bought the watch from another Chi

S& We peeped in ut the Music Hall last
Wednesday to see the j-oung folks enjoy the
pantomimes gotten up by Mr. E. Browne, and
we can -confidently say, that we have seldom
seen a more delighted crowd of young people.
The misadventures of the two sleepers under
the narrow sheet, which was finally carried off
by a rat, brought forth -ihouts of delight and
laughter. The way table cloths disappeared and
a candle rose and fell awakened the wonder and
amusement of the young minds. And all the
tricks and surprises of the pantomime, which
went off well, afforded continued entertaiment.
The performance of Columbine and of the fairy
were all charming, and the little ones were de
lighted to see the good young fairy ascend amid
the glories of a transformation scene in a celes
tial car. Miss Boyer's singing was one of the
delights of the occasion, and while she sang to
please old ears, she also succeeded in awakening
the enthusiasm of the little folks, who stamped
and shouted for an encore, which was sweetly
given. The Keumi brothers, our two Hawaiian
boys, are a great attraction in the trapeze. We
have never seen athletes, of any race, jierforin
with greater ease and nicety very daring feats
of acrobatic exercise than these Hawaiian young

I to this notifp Hia folln
Hip from the S. F. Call of Dec. 18. Gen. 'W.
H. Dimond is so well known to our community
as hardly to need any favorable mention from us.
His military service commenced during the war,
when feeling that our country had a right to the
services of all its citizens, he left his business in
Honolulu, and volunteered iu the Union army.
Appointed Captain and Assistant Adjutant-General,
he served until the close of the war with
honorable record. Since his appointment aa
aide-de-camp to the Commander-in-Chief he Las
taken great interest in the National Guard, and
he has now come into a position where he can
and will be instrumental in advancing its inter
ests and efficiency. A venerable soldier of
honorable record ; a prominent and successful
merchant ; an active and au energetic mau in the
prime of life, we believe his appointment will be
eminently satisfactory not only to National
Guardsmen, but also to the citizens, for whose
protection and security the N. O. C. is maintained.''
