On Friday evening last a perform
ance of "The Mob Cap, or Love's
Disguises" was given by some of
the ladies and gentlemen of Kohala
for the benefit of the English church
funds. Kaiopihi Hall, where the en

filled with an appreciative audience,
who thoroughly enjoyed the per
formance and were astonished to
find they had among their residents
such talented artists. It would be
impossible to say one part was better
sustained than another, for every
character was rendered in a very
creditable manner. The stage was
most tastefully decorated by Miss
Thompson and Mr. W. J. Brodie.
The following ladies and gentlemen
took part in the performance: Mrs.

Monday, July 27.
William Cranz forfeited $10 bail
for drunkenness. James Richard
son in a Bimilar manner contributed
$6 to tho treasury. Aulino Keuni
pleaded guilty to the same offense,
and went out in the rain lightened
of $G and $1 costs. John Shaw and
Poloka did not answer to their
names, doubtless owing to tho in
clemency of tho weather. Conse
quently their deposit of $10 bail each
for affray was lost to them and their
heirs forever. George also had a
deposit of the same amount for as
sault and battery on Lcpake, but he
did not come forward to claim it.
Lam Karaeeu pleaded guilty to lwv-
Ing niaaulted and battered ICauni,
and was fined 87 and 81 costs. All

charge of assault with a knifo upon
Kaai on board the Iwalani on Satur
day. Ho was remanded until to
morrow. Victor Maitincau was
mulcted in $5 and $1 costs for leav

waiki took 7octs. from three passen
gers in his express from the wharf
to a point on Fort street near Fehl
ber's, and $5.25 from the same
number out to the What Cheer

of So and $3.20 costs. A pretty
heavy docket for such a rainy day.

The rain outside did not interfere
with the reign of justice in the tem

RETURN OF THE EXPLORERS.
The Iwalani returned yesterday,
with her excursionist party all safe
and sound, from the visit of explo
ration to tho island of Nihoa. So
far as seen by our reporter tho part'
have all been delighted with their
jaunt. At different landings on
Kauai the party was reinforced by
residents of that Island, causing'thc
steamer to be rather too crowded
for comfort during tho final stage of
the trip out. Waimea was left at
half-past three in the afternoon, and
the objective island was sighted
about daylight the following morn
ing. Landing was effected 'about
eight o'clock, in a small cove be
tween two promontories on the
southeast side. The operation was
not accomplished without much diffi
culty and danger, and some damage.
Three boats were swamped upon
being lowered, and the natives
thrown into the water. They had
to swim about among the sharks for
a while before saving themselves.
Another boat was partly stove, but
about the worst mishap was the los
ing of Mr. Williams' photographic
apparatus. Tliis was unfortunate,
from its preventing the taking of
views. A stay of eight hours was
made upon the island, which sufficed
for pretty full investigations by the
savans representing different depart
ments of science.
It was found that the rocky islet
was about one and a quarter miles
long and one-half mile wide. Rev.
S. E. Bishop made a survej-, the re
sults of which will be given in detail
when arranged. The topograph' of
the island presents the appearance
of a series of terraces, here and
there springing into peaks, the
highest of which is about 800 feet.
On the northeast and the opposite
sides the coast is a bold, perpen
dicular wall. Mr. Dole made sketches
of the cliffs from the steamer at
approaches of twelve and six miles
In tho valleys and slopes of the
south side an arable soil supports
grass, weeds and sci ubby vegetation
generally. A considerable grove of
palms was found in a healthy state.
Mr. Jaeger, whose credentials were
to the vegetable kingdom, reports
that theic was nothing in that domi
nion different from what thrives
abundantly on the larger islands.
Mr. Dole, who represented orni
thology, says there are nine or ten
species of birds on Nihoa, some of
which are never seen here, although
none are strange to the rest of these
latitudes. lie has brought with him a
large assortment of eggs. A species
of sea gull was so plentiful that its
nests, beneatli soft mounds, were
broken into at almost every step of
the explorers. Unfortunately some
of the last to leave the island set
flre to the grass, and it was feared
much damage might result to the
birds and their nests.
Unmistakable remains of human
habitation were discovered on the
island. Mr. Jaeger found a skull in
a cave, and others elsewhere cainc
across a whole skeleton, within the
cranium of which a bird had made
its nest. There were the ruins of a
stone building, a wall in a fair state
of preservation, upon a mountain
slope. A rudely scooped stone
basin was also found, and it was
conjectured that an excavation of
the debris, that had fallen into the
enclosure of tho wall above men
tioned, would reveal other relics of
past occupancy by man. There is a
tradition extant on Kauai that natives
of the latter used formerly to culti
vate potatoes and yams on Nihoa,
making voyages there to plant and
to gather tho crops.
When tho time came to leave, even
more difficulty was experienced by
tho parly in getting back to the
steamer, than in landing therefrom,
the passengers having to jump from
the silppery rocks into the boats.

AN ELOQUENT SERMON,
Owing, of course, to the storm tho
assembly at Kawaiahao Church last
evening was not a largo one, al
though it would havo comfortably
filled ono of the smaller local
churches. Rev. Mr. Cruzan con
ducted the opening services, and the
choir of Fort street Church led the
musical exercises. Rev. Dr. Hemp
hill, of Philadelphia, the preacher
of the occasion, took his text m
Psalm 45 : 13' 'The King's daughter
is all glorious within : her clothing
is wrought of gold." It was re
markable, lie said, what a blending
together there was between the
heavenly and the earthly in tho
scriptures. Old time painters speak
of a cci lain substance that turned
everything it touched into gold.
The Spirit of God was such a sub
stance. Ho could bring the truth of
God into every subject lie touches.
The Word of God was the precious
mint which could give heavenly
cirrency to any earthly materiaf.
Moses bringing water out of tho
rock only became rcmarkablo when
wo saw that the rock represented
Christ. The cedar of Lebanon with
its lofty growth became remarkable
when it was seen as the emblem of
the man of God. There was nothing
remarkable in the falling of a spar
row, but in it could be seen the pro
vidence of God. He was not sur
prised to find the forty-fifth Psalm
in his Bible reading, for it was all
about Christ and his church. Its
imagery was taken from tho sacred
institution of ma riagc. The Spirit
of God was in this glorious psalm,
grafting the tree of life ou an earthly
stock. The rays of the heavenly
spirit all pass through this focus,
and if wc have the spiritual eye wo
shall gather them all into one focus,
and be filled with the knowledge of
the glory of God in the face of Jesus
Christ. The first crse of this
psalm was a general preface to what
followed. Then eight Verses were
devoted to singing the praises of
the heavenly bridegroom. Eight
more were about the New Jerusalem
bride, teaching that Christ and his
church are one. It was no chance
that led to this equilibrium of ar
rangement. There was no more
c"ia cc in the be ok of 'a ace than in
the book of na( v e. Tho Jews may
have gone too far in attributing a
meaning to every letter of scripture,
but it was not going too far to sajr
that the structure of the Bible had
With the foregoing introductory
rcmai ks, the preac'ier proceeded to
discuss the text by divisions, fc irst,
"the King's daughter" her inner
character. She was all glorious
within. Every word dercribing her
character was an apple of gold in a
picture of silver. 1st, "Within."
Like many other things the chinch
of God had to be inspected within
to see its true and lasting glory. If
ho were to have the Apostles' Creed
revised for the church at this day
seemed to need it they should
never be ashamed to repeat, as part
of the Creed, "I believe that the
King's daughter is all glorious
within." The preacher here gave
an eloquent panegyric upon the
glories of the church in times past,
including the dark days when caves
were her churches and scaffolds her
deathbeds. The church could not
be glorioas without until her beau
ties were acknowledged all over tho
world. Let her if she would .wear
the crown and gem of royalty, with
the favors of the great and mighty
men of earth-; let her sit on thrones
of state, provided always that her
roots are striking downward and her
brandies spreading- outward. Se
condly "glorious." He asked what
made the church glorious. It was
tho presence of Christ in tho heart.
Tho church that has the Lord Jesus
Christ at the centre of all her oper
ations, although it may be humble
in outward appearance, must be a
glorious church, and the man having
the same must be a glorious man.
A church with a human priest at
tho head of it cannot bo a glorious
church. Neither can one that has
human reason at the heart of her
theology. The man who tries to
draw his religion from his own
puny intellect is at best only liko
drawing water from an empty well.
A church that has nothing but a
cold, motionless, dead orthodoxy
cannot be a glorious church, for it
is a lamp without oil. Nothing
would sufllco but the presence of
the Lord Jesus Christ in the church.
Solomon's temple was but a pile of
desolate magnificence before tho
glory of the Lord entered it. Third
ly, "all." The Lord Jesus Christ
was in all parts of his church, as
the blood was in all parts of tho
body. What right, then, had any
ecclesiastical body to draw a circlo
around it and say this was all the
Making a second grand division,
the preacher discussed the outward
glory of the church. This consisted
in the righteousness or me i,oru
Jesus Christ as exemplified in tho
lives of Christians. These should
be all glorious. No single sin should
bo harbored in the hope that forgive
ness should be specially obtained for
it, Christians, like tho prophets of
old, should wear the mantles of
their profession, so that the world
should know them. The church's
garments vevo not morely gold, but
wrought gold. Christ, from tho
manger to tho cross, was working
out the righteousness that should
clothe his people. Their characters
should not require, like tho pictures
drawn by children, to bo label
led to show what they were.
In conclusion, lie addressed himself,
by way of application, with eloquent
force, first, to those who were
Christians, and, next, to those who
were not. lie reminded the first
that they were required to be tho
light of the world in Honolulu.
They wore to show the character of
their Lord in their lives. Those who
were not Christians were asked why
they wore not. Of all places in tho
world they should bo Christians in
these Islands. Their commercial
enterprises, their noble hospital,
their schools and colleges, the rocog-
nition of the rights of humanity as
completely as anywheic on tho
globe all these blessings they owed
to Christianity. Quench tho light
of Christianity in these Islands and
you quench the light of civilization.
Ho appealed to them, as in all pro
bability for tho last time he could
do so, to become identified with the
glorious daughter of the King.
The sermon was delivered entirely
without notes, and with a power of
utterance that held the close atten
tion of tho congregation throughout.
A CREAT STORM.
Unsettled weather of yesterday
forenoon developed before night into
a decidedly foul disposition of tho
elements. A drizzling rain and fur
tive blasts of wind made it uncom
fortable outdoors about church-going
time last evening. About 9 o'clock
a brisk shower was coming down,
and tho wind blew the drops about
so that oven the expresses afforded
but an imperfect shelter to home
goers, their chief advantage being
their expedition. Before midnight
a regular hurricane was blowing and
the rain was falling in torrents. This
turbulent and salubrious condition
of things obtained the whole fore
noon, and this afternoon, although
calmer, is not dryer. Damage to
trees, buildings and telephone wires
is reported all over town. Stately
palms and majestic algarobas have
been uprooted and thrown down by
the tempest. Very extensive damage
has also undoubtedly been wrought
among frailer vegetation, involving
the greatest immediate loss in the
destruction of food growths. Among
other destructive effects of the
storm, Allen & Robinson's lumber
shed was wrecked so badly as to
make it dangerous and it lias been
pulled down. This afternoon many
shops in town have closed, as there
is not enough business being done
to make it worth while keeping open.
Out at the Park, trees arc levelled
in all directions. Enquiry lcgard
ing the chances of the steamer

is likely out of the range of the
storm. Seafaiingmcn consider the

EXTRAORDINARY FINOER NAIL8, .
It is in Siam, in Annam and 'n
Cochin China that this extraordinary
custom is carried to Its" greatest
development. The nobles of Annum,
for instance, permit their nails to
grow to such a length that tho hands
are absoluteh useless for an' prac
tical purpose. The nails on the
second, third and fourth fingers
attain a length of from four to near
ly five inches. They arc straight,
with a slight inward curve, and pre
sent tho appearance of immenso
claws and talons, which wo could
imagine might bo of uso to man in
his most savago state for scratching
up the ground to find roots or scads,
but certainly do not appear adapted,
for either use or ornament under any
of the ordinary incidents of life.
The nail of the thumb is hardly so
long as those of the other digits. It
at first grows nearly straight, with
also a tendency to curve inward,
and presently takes the form of an
elongated spiral, and must almost
entirely prevent the use of the thumb
as an organ of prehension.
On the first linger alono is tho
nail kept within reasonable bounds,
and with this only must bo perform
ed all those innumerable trilling acts
which, taken together, add so great
ly to our comfort and well being. It
sometimes happens that the ,nails
arc allowed to grow to a great length
to indicate that tho wearer leads a
religious life, and has foresworn at
once tho labors and frivolities of the
world. The hand of a Chinese
ascetic, leading such an indolent and
wasteful existence, presents the most
extraordinary spectacle. Tho nail
of the first linger is, indeed, as in
the case of the Annamcsc already
described, left sulllciently short to
render the finger of some practical
purpose. The other lingers arc,
however, disfigured by immense
horny growths, which can scarcely
bo called nails, and which reach the
enormous length of from "sixteen
to cighiceen inches."
