Among tho institutions of this
community lcllccling cictlit upon its
public spirit anil intelligence arc
the Y. M. C. A. antl the Library
and Rending Room, established in
the centre of the city, on opposite
corners of Hotel and Alakea sti eets.
Public Libraries and V. 1SI. C. A.'
have, of late years, become fixtures
in every civilized city in the woild.
Jn this city, the Library and Y. M.
C. A. buildings are among the best
specimens of architecture we have.
The affairs of both institutions are
conducted by active business men.
Some of the most "solid men" of
Honolulu may be found, incident
ally at their rooms, and regularly
at their meetings. The Library
rooms are well stocked with some of
the choicest literature of the old
world and the new. The janitor,
Mr. Feiguson, is snrc to accord visi
tors a courteous reception; and
when any particular book is asked
for, it is promptly forthcomingf
Noticeable in the line array o.
volumes that meet tho eye, are the
works on Hawaii, its history, its
characteristics, and, in short, every
thing about it. Polynesia in general
and the countries washed by the
watci's of the Pacific Ocean, also
come in for a large amount
of space. All tourists and authors
of note, who have written about
China, Japan, and the islands
of the Pacific, seem to have
been mustered from the four quai teis
of the literary world to lie assigned
a niche in this temple of mind.
Honolulu journalism, in bound vol
umes of newspapers reaching back
to the eailiest days of its civilization,
is fully leprcscntcd. Any person
who will take the double to tuin
over these files, will find mirrored
along the years, the various phases
of development and progi ess through
which the social, lcligious and po
litical institutions of the country
have passed. The Library and
Reading Room is supported by mem
bership fees, and any citizen not
already a member, will be making
an investment creditable to himself
and to the city by enrolling his
name, whether he has occasion to
participate directly in its privileges
The Y.M.C.A., as its name indi
cates, is an organization having in
view the iutcllectual, moral and re
ligious elevation of its members and
of all outsiders who can be brought
within the scope of its influence.
The tables of the large leading loom
in the building are well laid with
the newspapers and magazine litera
ture of America and Km ope, as
well as ,tlie local sheets. The lead
ing room is open and free to all
comers. The manifold operations
of the society consist chiefly of re
ligious meetings and visitation of
families and arc carried on under the
superintendence of the Ccncml Secre
tary, Mr. Fuller. An employment
committee frequently docs good ser
vice to strangers by putting them in
tho way of work, nnd by this means
alone, ruin is cheated of many vic
tims. Free education, in its freest
form, provided so far as the accom
modation will warrant, is given, in
the form of evening lessons in ma
thematics and bookkeeping, for
young men, unable to avail them
selves of the advantages of the day
schools, but who are desirous of im
proving themselves in these branches,
so as to be the better qualified for
business pursuits. The association
is supported by membership fees,
monthly dues, donations, and rents
of the hall iu the second flat. The
rolls consist of voting and asso
ciate members, the former being
persons belonging to difforent
churches. Associate members are
entitled to all the privileges of the
association, except eligibility to vot
ing and holding office.

The funeral obsequies of General
Grant were celebrated in New York
and simultaneously in all the great
cities of the Union, North and South,
on the 8th inst., on a scale of mag
nificence commensurate with the
greatness of the nation and of the
deceased hero of the Civil war. In
New Yoik, fifteen thousand veterans
of the Grand Aimy with some five
thousand other survivois of the con
flict, followed tho casket to the
tomb. Besides the Picsidcnt and
Cabinet and high ofllccrs of the
army and navy, many of the most
distinguished of the surviving Con
federate Generals, two of whom
acted as pnll-bcaicrs, were present.
New Yoik is said to have contained
moie people that day than ever it
did on any single occasion before.
From eight to eleven o'clock the
vaiious bodies, military and civic
were occupied in falling into line,
after which the procession started,
and not until five o'clock was the
casket containing the remains of the
famed General deposited in their
last resting place.

The publisher says that Miss
Cleveland's book continues a great
success. The work sells not only
on account of the position of the
writer, but because of its undis

permission to have the book trans
lated iu Russian. The Empress has
a great admiration for the work, and

Father Andre has made public a
complaint that the Canadian volun
teers committed undue depredations
in the rebel territory. Ho alllrms,
from his own observation, that for a
distance of twenty-five miles all the
houses on the south bank of the
Saskatchewan were sacked and plun
dered, and over twenty of them
burned and razed to the ground ;
also, that the volunteers pillaged
the inhabitant's of all they had in
the way of horses, goods and clothes,
leaving them only what they had on
their backs. "The result of all
this is," he says, "that our poor
half-breeds are in a state of fright

the opinion that Riel's condemna

that the Judge was not impartial in
his rulings. Some of them even de
