The "salutatory" article of the
Anylicun Church Chronicle contains
nn expression of sentiment which
Btrikes a responsive- chord in the
breast of every liberal minded and
charitable hearted man and woman.
Wc refer to the following: "Our
earnest endeavor will be to soften
the asperities which arise between
Christians of the same church, and
also between those who differ in
church polity and in theology."
And, "With pronounced religious
principles of our own, and bound by
solemn vows to teach tlicm, wc yield
to none in broad and comprehensive
liberality towards those differing
from us, ever mindful of the Vinccn
tian canon, 'in essentials unity, in
non-essentials liberty, and in all
things charity.' "
Wc arc more than pleased to sec
he organ of tho Hawaiian Anglican
Church making its first appearance
among the people with such a senti-
ment and such a declaration as this;
nml sincerely desire that it may bo
successful in its commendable and
exemplar' mission of smoothing
"asperities which may arise," and
' of fostering n charitable disposition
to forbearance and concession in
"non-essentials." The time is past
for, any church, or party, or section
of professed Christian believers to
stand nloof from other Christian
organizations, believing themselves
, entirely right and all others entirely
wrong. Modern religious thought
nml feeling among all parties who
confess the common Head appear
inclined to "agree to disagree," re
cognizing the new commandment to
"love one another." This is one of
tho hopeful "signs of the times" in
the Christian world.
To the credit of our little com
munity of mixed nationalities and
diverse creeds be it said, there is
Ics3 of church exclusivcncss and
religious dissension here than in
many older and larger communities :
sectional barriers arc less obstruc
tive and denominational distinctions
less defined. Catholics and protcst
ants fraternize in church gatherings,
churchmen and dissenters mingle in
religious meetings. It is well that
it is so: it would be better if it were
more so. Efforts to break down
partition walls and to unite by a
common bond of brotherhood, meet
the approval of all lovers of human
ity; and although it is not in the
provinco of n secular journal to dis
cuss religious problems, wc do not
overstep our proper hounds by wish
ing the Anylkun Church Chronicle
success iu its endeavors to promote
unity and brotherly feeling among
THE TRANSIT OF VENUS.
Those who wisli to view the tran
sit will find a telescope in the rooms
above Messrs. J. W. Robertson &
Co.'s store, who have kindly placed
it there for the public benefit. Ac
cording to Thrum's Annual for tins
year the times the transit will occur
to-day are as follows : Ingress, ex
ternal contact, 3h. 21in. 43s. a.m.;
Ingress, internal contact, 3h. if)m.
13s. a.m. ; Egress, external contact,
Oil. 22m. 23s. a.m. ; Egress, external
contact, 9h. -13m. Ms. a.m. If tho
weather be clear, the transit may be
observed with the naked eye through
a smoked glass, the planet appear
ing like a small speck on tho sur
face of the sun.
A PROLIFIC BANANA.
Wc went ngain yesterday to in
spect tho banann in Mr. II. Crnbbc's
garden which, our readers will
remember, we described some
months ngo lis being a freak of
nature. 'The banana was n twin
banana and ono of tho stems was
blown off by the wind. This pfoco
ahowed two perfectly formed heads.
Since then tho other stem dividell
into two. Oue of these two was also
blown off by the wind. Tuoicimiin-
ing and last head has now opened
and is gradually showing no less
than tlireo distinctly formed bunches.!
Wc lieaiby a letter from Kau that
a native man there, named Hnuawai,
was going to fish with giant powder.
He was getting ready to throw the
powder into the water when it ex
ploded, blowing both arms off close
to the shoulders, lie died in n few
minutes. How many lives will he
sacrificed before tho Government
think fit to make regulations regard
ing the sale and use of this dungcr
THE POISONING CASE.
Wo give the following oullino of
the poisoning of the native man Ka-
maili who died at Kanioiliili some
time since, and the inquest on whose
remains was finished on Monday
Kamaili was a blind man, and he
suspected his wife of living with
other men. He got a native police
man to go and search for her iu a
neighbor's house one Saturday night.
The policeman went but did not find
her. The owner of the house brought
an action against him for trespass,
and the blind man came up to Court
as a witness that he had ordered the
policeman to go there to search for
his wife. The next morning he was
taken suddenly ill and died in violent
spasms. A cat was seen eating out
of a calabash and also dictl iu
spasms, and n neighbor's dog came
round the house and died in a simi
lar way. While he was lying ill and
dying his wife went away to wash
some clothes, and didn't return till
he was dead. The analysis of his
stomach, 'liver, &c., by Dr. Stan
gcnwnld showed the presence of a
violent poison. Wo give the details
of the experiment elsewhere.

to Astronomers generally that the

he will, gain eternal renown.
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
Tin: judgment in the case agaiust
officers Marcos and Oailt will pro

Somi: drivers have been telling us
that the busses sometimes carry one
light only. Should this be so?
Max Eckaiit is now" showing the
latest designs in jewelry, watches,
&c, on his shop on Fort street.
A Chinese prisoner working up
at Kanioiliili on Monday attempted
to run awaj". He was speedily
caught and yesterday morning ho
was brought before the Court. He
was sentenced to 2 months' im
prisonment, a fine of $10 and $1
Fort St. Church has received a

Miasm. J. Williams & Co. the
photographers, arc now keeping in
stock some beautiful albums con
taining Hawaiian ferns named and
arranged in artistic groups. Tlioy
strike us as tho most beautiful
specimens of skill and tasto we havo
seen Cor a long while.
At the inquest on Monday nftor
noon, Dr. Stangcuwald created much
interest by ' experimenting iu the
presence of the Court on n number
of small lizards with portions of the
contents of the poisoued mint's
stomach. After introducing a little
water into tho mouth of each lizard
.to show that tho insertion of the
linstrumcnt did not hurt ornflcct
them id, any. vay, tho .small glass vo
was dipped in Hue liquid obtained
from the stomach, and a ,tiny
drop put in each lizard's mouth., , In
a very short time it would tlipj, in
convulsive spasms. Altogetlicr eight
lizards wcrcvcxperimcntcil on
Mt:s3itv Pobertson & Co. arc now
displaying their assortment of
Christmas goods to an admiring
public. In looking through them
wc find that, notwithstanding tlic
numorous competitors for public
favor id this branch, still they have
contrived to be different fiom the
rest. Amongst the line gift books
displayed on the counter arc volumes
of the works of .the best pott,
Longfellow, Whitticr, Bryant, Hyron
Scott, Shakespeato all are there ifnd
many more. All the works, too,
are found there that have become
regarded as an indispensable part of
tho knowledge of every English
speaking man, woman or child.
Bright gift books iu novel "liuidiugd,
children's stories, Christmas varus
lie side by side. Photograph albums
occupy a place by themselves and
arc to be found in immense variety.
Cliistnms cardsj ' boxes of fancy
stationery, and nicknacks, bewilder
the brain of tho anxious would-be
impersonator of Saiita Clan s until
lie docs not know which to buy
when all are so good. Wc hardly
know where to slop when describing
tiic beauties of such tilings but space
forbids us to say any more at
present. Mr. Itobcrtsou informs us
that he expects a still finer assort
ment by tho next steamer.
OPINION OF AN EMINENT ARTIST.
Mn. Tnr.onoiti: Haui:x. The
editor of the New York Weekly I?e
vicw, one of the leading musical
papers of this country, iu speaking
of tho Colibri Piano, said: "It is
much smaller and weighs considera
bly less tlinn any square Piano Forte
wc have yet seen. It can be handled
with perfect ease ; at the same time
it offers nnno of those ungainly
aspects which some other alterations
of tho usual shape have presented.
It is .a thorough square Piano Forte,
only very small, but at the same
.tinic, very proportionate and beauti
ful and can speak to such an ex
tent, with such power and sonority,
that; vyo must sec, as well as hear it,
to believe it possible. Here is truly
'a gieat soul in a small body.'
Throughout the scale the tone is
even, very full and sonorous, brilli
ant and melodious; the action is
easy, and the workmanship indi
cates great care on the part of those
who were inti usted with it." These
pianos are for sale at G. F. Wells'
