Has come ml gone. Ills well to ic

tuul holiday-keeping awi indulged in
''thiin nt Christmas. Moic shops
were shut and less ivoik avos Hone.
I'ho sticets wcio crowded nil duy
with people, many of whom were in
toxicated. Gieiiler diiuikenness
has not been seen hero since the
passing of the new Liquor Law. In
another column will be found the
iiumber -who were locked up, and of
these many lycre women. Some
were so drunk that they didn'tfeven
know, liieir own names. In the after
noon, THE BAND CONCERT
Was fairly attended. Wc think)
with most others, that it was the
best given here for many years. The
programme was well selected and
carried out, and wc.jarc sure Mr.
Bergcr must feel gratified at the suc
cess of his efforts in producing the
best and most popular music in such
good style. At 3 o'clock
Was drawn up on the cradle of the
Marine Railway successfully, the
whole operation taking less than
three quarters of an hour. "We trust
that having work from the first will
be an augury of the success of the
undertaking for the rest of the year.
Durum the day the usual calls
were paid. At Kalihi a pigeon shoot
ing match was held, at which Mr.
J. Haley mndc the best score.
In the evening the slips anil sittings
at Fort street Church were sold by
Mr. Adams. Mr. P. C. Jones paid
. the highest premium of 8100: the
1 next being ten of $50 each. The
. total amount realized was about $5,

Monday evening, for the benefit of
the Y. M. C. C, -was listened to by
a laigc audience, who went away
highly pleased with their entertain
"Was crowded on Sunday morning
with those anxious to hear, the
quarterly examination of the Sunday
Schools. The exercises were gone
throughthoroughly and well, but
wlicic so much was good in each it
would be invidious to pailicularizc.
"Wc look upon these quaiterly ex
hibitions as being of great value to
both teachcis and scholais, and it is
evident that they aie growing in
public favor by the incieasing at
tendance. THE TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION
Met on Tuesday morning, at 10
.o'clock, in the Bethel. The Presi
dent, Mr. Jones, delivered an excel
lent address, the maiu ideas of
which were "teach less and teach it
better" and ' 'examination is no sure
lest of knowledge." The Secretary's
report .was read and various letters.
Thanks were voted to the Board of
Educutiontfor their kind considera
tion of the Association. The elec
tion of officers came next.
Mr. Baldwin being absent, Mr.
Hitchcock spoke on his projected
Hawaiian Dictionary. The work
had been suggested to him by tho
Board. He had already got ns far J
as C, and would be icady for the
printer in about six or eight mouths,

for inspection. Theto were 700

then gave a most; interesting pi nc

by all. The wcctij? thcu adjourned

"On the last trip of the Danish
steamer Vollmor, fioin Hongkong to
Victoria, during a severe storm
which prevailed in the China and
Japan Seas, the vessel fell in with
an immense mass of floating trees
and coarse foliage, uprooted among
the island by the heavy rains and
winds. The storm was local, ex
tending over a ciiciiuifercncc not
gi eater than a few bundled miles.
The Vollmcr at the time had mi
board over, oUO Chincbo passengers,
intended as laboicis upon the
noathorn lailionds, mil the curious
sight oio.itcd great consternation
among them. The vc-scl experienced
much dilliuulty in steering tlnougli
the floating mass. Three blades of
her propeller were broken off. She
put into Yokohama, and after icpaii
nig proceeded on her voyage."
This reminds us of the extensive
tracts of sca.wecd, often found float
ing in the gulf stream and along the
-Bahamas in the Atlantic Ocean.
Wc were once in a ship crossing the
gulf slicani, when we encountered
ono of these sea-weed diifts, by
which the progicss of the vessel
during a very light breeze was
stopped for nearly a day, till a
strong wind sprung up and pushed
her through it. Steamers not un
ficquently have their piopcllcis
clogged in crossing these drifts,
which, however, arc not so danger

Occasionally these logs are throw n

On Wednesday, the 27th of Dec

near the Court House at Kapaau.
Hon. Mr. Aiwohi, the Bepiesenta
tivc of North Kohala, was driving
alone in a wagon on the main road,
when ho was met by a drove of
loose horses, the drivers of which, it
is said, urged them at headlong
speed just as they came up with the
wagon. At all events, Mr. Aiwohi's
horse took fright, ran pwav and
overset the wagon, throwing him
down a steep place into the ravine.
He was picked up insensible. Dr.
Thompson was summoned,- but fail
ed to reproduce consciousness, and
death resulted in a few hours, from
concussion of the brain. The de

ant man, was reputed to bo an
