On'the 2lth of February, 18 If.,
Lord George Paulct, eoimiinndci' of
the British tnan-of-wnr Carysfort,
bullied King Kaiiiehainehu III. into
ceding his kingdom to f! rent Britain.
Under the circumstances that mon
arch and his advisers considered that
they could not wisely do otherwise,
but the next best thing wai done
when the cession was made under
protest, and nn ambassador sent to
London to .appeal to the Ilritisli
Crown against the arbitrary mid un
just action of its servant, instigated
by a rascally schemer, who doubt
less only considered the distinction
that would be reflected upon his own
name from his, being the agent in
securing such a grand prize to the
Urilish Knipirc. The pieMimptuous
Lord's superior olllcer. Hear Admiral
Thomas, however, hastening from
South America in his fiigate, the
Dublin, righted matters bcfoic u
reply could be received from Lon
don. At an interview with the King,
on tlic 27th of July, tcinis of resto
ration of the Hawaiian flag were
agtccd upon, and on July 31st,
amidst great demonstrations of joy,
Thomas had the RrilWi flag hauled
down and the Hawaiian hoisted and
duly honored. The terms of restora
tion were hampered, but only pio
visionally, with privileges to Brit Mi
above other foreign icMilents hcic,
but on the 28th of November a joint,
agreement of the lirili.-di and French
Governments was icceivcd. recog
nizing the full independence of the
Hawaiian Kingdom and declaring it
to be forever inviolate, equal rights
to foreigners "of different nationali
ties being ensured. A similar iccog
nition of Hawaiian independence was
made by the Tinted States and this
"the day we celebrate" commemo
rates the happy coiiMiniuintmn
which, in the words of the old song,
was good for me Hawaii, and
good for you other nations and
good for everybody ()."
EDUCATING THE HAND.
Interesting discussions took place
at the recent session of the Legisla
ture upon the subject of technical
education in the public schools. Un
fortunately the depleted condition of
the treasury prevented practical aid
being given to this object, that was
regarded with much favor bv thiH
President, of the Hoard of Education
and many other members on both
sides in the Assembly. A recent
article in the Advertiser, however,
shows that the idea is being carried
out in some educational institutions,
upon ,a small scale but with satisfac
tory results. The boy.-, at Lahaina
luna have got so far on in carpentry
that they have furnished many other
schools with such fittings as desks
' and blackboard-., and it is said all
the lads arc eager to acquire fami
liarity with tools. At the Reforma
tory School of Honolulu the lads
have turned out some crcditablo
carpentering for the benefit and im
provement of tho institution, iu addi
' tion to their extensive and profitable
1 agricultural operations. Elsewhere
-,on the Islands pupils in the public
''schools have been initiated in field
j work, but in the absence of nn ai
';'propriation mechanical tools cannot
vie provided for tho desirable pur
pose of having workshops attached
to all the public schools. It is satis
factory to know, however, that tho
Hoard of Education is striving to
tjilaco this country abreast of the
limes in Ibis particular. It is ccr- '
talnly not far behind, cither, for we
notice that in nomc of tho oldest com
munities of Now England, tho matter
has not yet got beyond the experi-,
mental stage. Tools are to bo kept
in two of tljr grammar schools of
New Haven, Connecticut, and classes
from other schools in the city rill go
there for, a weekly lesson of two
hours. An expenditure of SGOO has
been authorized for the ptti chase of
the necessary supplies, and should
the satisfactory results anticipated
be realized, tho scheme will be ex
tended to all the grammar grades of
that city. It is to be hoped (he next
Legislature of this Kingdom will be
in a position to adopt a liberal
scheme of technical education for
all the public schools.
Tho Advertise)' says "there is not
a freer or better governed country
on the faccof the earth" than this
one. Draw it mild, neighbor.
A London despatch anticipates
that many months must elapse before
the now commercial tiealy between
Spain and the United States can go
into effect. In tho first place it
cannot come into operation until six
months after ratification by the
Legislatures of both countries, which
pushes the event into next summer
at the earliest. Then, Spanish olll
cials expect, a further extension of
time will bo arranged to enable
American dealcts holding large
stocks of sugar to dispose of them
before the anticipated fall in prices.
The despatch referred to concludes
as follows: "Spain expects to flood
tho American maiket by means of this
treaty with sugar, molasses, etc.,
from the colonics of Cuba and Porto
Rico. England is aheady becoming
somewhat alarmed at tho prospect,
and has begun negotiations for a
.similar treaty with the United States,
so as to secure a favorable outlet for
the products of Jamaica." ,
Air navigation seems to be ap
proaching a practicable stage. A
late despatch from Paris tells of a
successful round trip between two
towns, the distance not given, by
two aeronauts The impoitant state
ment is given that they made a
complete success in steering their
balloon. Thi matter of steering
has been hitherto the great dilllculty
to surmount in sailing the azure
heights of the firmament. It would
not be more astonishing in a few
ycais hence to have a daily air
passenger and mail express between
here and San Francisco, than a
picdiction of our present telephone
facilities would have been a few
years back. 'Impossible" is a
word attended with much risk in the
using this age.
The Gazette is a litllo out in tho
matter of American politics. It sa5-s
that personal canvassing by candi
dates for the Presidency is not un
usual, and that Lincoln and Douglass
made stirring appeals before the
elections of 1801. Both statements
arc erroneous. Mr. Lincoln, having
been elected President in 1SG0, made
no appeals stirring or otherwise in
18C0. As a matter of fact it is un
usual for Presidential candidates to
enter actively into the campaign.
The instance referred to by the
Gazette is probably the contest be
tween Lincoln and Douglass for the
Senntorship, when the rival candi
dates traversed the state of Illinois,
holding joint meetings and person
ally debating the issues of the day
before the people. This was two or
three years before Lincoln's election
to the Presidency.
Tun II alley (Idaho) Tinus has
tho following: "The population of
the Hawaiian islands is about 95,000;
natives l.'i.OOO, including at least ilOO

with leprosy or an incurable malady
