MONDAY, .H'N'E 12, 1K82.
Tho j f'ncijiiil n.it tonal holidays in
the"'- K'.mik in former yc:ivs. were
the 17th of March, observed an the
h'lili-il.i.v (as near as could beguess
'cl) of ICwkiiamuiia III., and ll:o
ait.t of July, in commemoration of
llio i.-slor-'iion by Admiral Thomas
in KSIM, of the. nnlion.il iiiilupcn
donco, which hud been haatily taken
away by Lord Geouok Pai'i.ivt. The
ill ! was naturally dropped after the
death of K.uiKr.Aort.i, and the latter
also, after the demise of Admiral
Tnmis. It was Kamkiiamiuia V.
who, in tho very year of his death,
187:2. selected the Eleventh of June
as a day to be observed in com
memoration of the Fiust KAMnn
jii:iia, and it has ever since been re
garded us the Hawaiian national
Kmi:iiami:iia has, by foreigners,
been styled " the great," and he is
entitled to tho name, both fiom his
personal character and by his acts.
It may be objected that ho was great
only on a small scale; but it has
been well said that there arc in this
world, great rulers of small nations,
as well as small rulers of great ones.
The first KAitini.vuv.iiA, in view of
the circumstances of his people and
country, was wise and politic to a
degree far in Advance of his times,
and gave unmistakcablc proof of a
natural genius for governing and a
genuine force of character that must
compel the admiration of the reader
of his history. By the Hawaiians lie
was named the Nc-i Aupuni the
constructor or founder of govern
ment; and heceitainly deserved the
appellation in Iim ing reduced order
out of the chaos of misrule of oppos
ing chiefs that existed before his
time, from Hawaii to Kauai. lie
died a pagan, but not before express
ing a wish for teachers from abroad.
Tnu P. G.A. evidently loses its
arithmetical balance every time it
speaks of the Portuguese immigrants
by the Monarch. It began an item
the other day by stating that there
wer 8(50 of those people, but before
it had proceeded a dozen lines it re
stated the number at Kit). On Sat
urday it gravely informed its readers
that during the previous twenty-four
hours, these wonderfully prolific
people had increased by sixteen.
This is at the rate of 380 per mouth,
and no less than 1,5G0 per annum!
There's fecundity for you. A won
derful people, truly.

large gathering of childicn of both
sexes and all ages. Parents, friends,

The spacious hall was crammed
brimfnll. In fact, it was a difficult
matter to find standing room even
outside of the doors. The Reform
atory School Band played several
sacred pieces m a manner that ex
cited admiration. The Band was
conducted on this occasion by one
of its own number a little fellow
named David Nape, about thirteen
years old. He is quite a musical
prodigy, and will, no doubt, make a
mark if his future continues as pro
gressive as the past.

A painful accident occurred yes
terday afternoon, by which tho little
son of Mr. C. B. Wilson was in
jured, lie was playing with what he
supposed was a package of chewing
gum, given him by a schoolmate,
but which it appears was giant pow
der. It exploded in his hand, and
the result was that the surgeon who
was called in had to amputate two
joints of the fore-finger of the left
hand and one each of the thumb and
second finger. From whence came
this dangerous and unlawful ex
plosive in the hands of childicn?
