THIS EVENING'S DOINGS.
Band, Emma Square, 7:J10.
Harmony Lodge, I.O.O.F., 7:0.
It is a chronic cause of complaint
that the Honolulu people will spend
money generously for almost any
thing but their intellectual improve
ment. It seems to be more careful
ness, of their purses than carelessness
of their mental necessities that is at
the bottom of this reproach, for
whenever no admission fee is charged
there are thronging audiences. Yet
the last thing in the world one who
knows them would lay to the charge
of the residents of Honolulu is stingi
ness. Therefore, we dismiss the
idea of offering any such explanation
of the difficulty of getting a large
audience to pay its way in to an
.entertainment of a solid nature. It
is not our intention, however, to
further discuss previous derelictions,
but to give two or three reasons why
there should be a full attendance ac
corded the lecture on Japan in the
Y. M. C. A. Hall this evening. In
the, first place a larc intellectual
treat is promised. Those who know
attribute to Gen. Van Buren rare
powers as a platform speaker. That
he will do justice to his talents on
this occasion may be expected, from
the familiarity with his subject he
must possess. His prominent posi
tion, as Consul of the United States,
in the chief commercial city of
Japan, cannot but have afforded him
the best facilities a foreigner could
have for correct observation of the
people and their peculiarities. Then
the subject itself is of intense inter
est to the people of this country, of
every class, at the present time,
when the arrival of nearly a thou
sand Japanese, and the promise of
more, makes it important that we
should understand this new clement
of our population, and so act as to
make the accession beneficial, in the
highest attainable degree, to all con
cerned. Lastly, the Library and
Beading Room Association, to whom
the credit is due of procuring the
promised treat, is the creditor of
Honolulu for a heavier debt of use
fulness, iuiinitcly, than tho sum of
to-night's admission, fees could
liquidate, even if it was presented
withoutthc assurance that each con
tributor would get full value for his
pittaucc on tho spot. The reputa
tion of the community is at stake in
a multifold degree. Save it by going
to hear Gen. Van Buren on Japan

Yesterday morning the services in
the Bethel Union Church were dedi
cated to tho memory of the late Rev.
Samuel Chencry Damon, D. D., for
over forty years pastor of that con
gregation. An audience of about
230 filled the ground floor pews and
overflowed into the galleries. Decor
ations were few and simple, but in
excellent taste. At the hack of the
pulpit, in white, megonias, was tho
S. C. D.
The desk was coveted with crape,
with a wtcatli of white roses running
along the margin. A large bouquet
of calla liljes set in ferns adorned
the front panelling of the pulpit.
After appropriate preliminary devo
tions, the Rcr. Mr. Oggel, pastor,
preached the memorial sermon, from
Gen. 5 :24, " He walked with God :
and he was not; for God took him."
Enoch had f-evcral children, showing
that the cares of a family are in no
way incompatible with a high spirit
uality and n life of pre-eminent con
secration to God. A few words
apostrophizing such friendship with
God as Enoch enjoyed, and the
preacher entered upon a succinct
biography of tho subject of memorial.
Of Dr. Damon it might also be
said, " lie walked with God." Born
in Iloldcn, Mass., Feb. 15th, 1815,
he had professed faith in the Re
deemer at the age of fourteen, an
example the preacher urged all the
young to follow, for a life entrusted
to tho Lord Jesus, and by him
directed, must in the highest sense
be a success. Dr. Damon was edu
cated at Amherst College, Mass.,
and Princeton Seminary, New Jersey.
Among his fellows in those institu
tions were Gov. Bullock. Judge
Doolittle, Dr. Hitchcock, Dr. Stuart
Robinson of Kentucky, Dr. B. M.
rainier of New Orleans, Dr. R. S.
Storrs and Rev. IlCnry Ward Beccher
of Brooklyn. Dr. Damon had a
definite aim in life, and like Augus
tine and Milton, Galileo and Luther,
called to their respective tasks, was
directed to preach the gospel of
Jesus. His father had designed him
fdt business, but he on his knees
consecrated himself to the missionary
work, and later called this his
second conversion. He was ordained
a minister Sept. 15, 1841 ; married
Oct. G, 1811, to Julia Sherman Mills,
his faithful amd loving companion to
the last. His. first intention, to go a
missionary to India, was relinquished
upon being asked to take tho place
of Rev. John Diell, the first chaplain
at this port of tho American Sea
men's Friend Society, that gentle
man having died at sea. Arriving
here with his wife on Oct. 19, 1842,
this had thenceforth been his home
aud ficjd of labor. This chaplaincy
was the great work of his life. From
his lamented, predecessor's jubilee
sermon, the preacher gave facts to
show the magnitude of the labors of
such a position in tho first and larger
part of Dr. Damon's incumbency.
Between 1842 and 18G7, at tho
lowest estimate 0,000 seamen an
nually entered this port. During
those years, he had testified, his
labors were abundant and sometimes
beyond his strength. Mero statis
tics, however, could not measuro the
value of his work, owing to the mul
tiplying and expanding power of tho
gospel. Those receiving a Bible, a
tract, a Friend, or even a word to
'awaken good memories, would com
municate, in many instances, tho
beneficent influences to others on the
wide waters. Dr. Damon's labors
as editor of the Friend from its
starting in 18415 to nearly the end of
his life, his pastoral work in the
Bethel Union, his writings upon
Micronesian missions the noted
"Morning Star Papers" and his
numberless public-spirited services
to tho community, were all in turn
alluded to, also his recent visit to
tho Orient. Tho1 deexco of Doctor .
