with the rest of the department
in tendering a reception to Mr. John
Nott, Chief Engineer, on his return
from the East.
This morning, shortly before two
o'clock, a suburban neighborhood
was wakened up by the most ear
piercing screams. They were found
to proceed from a dwelling just
vacated by a family, an old native
and a son of ten or twelve years
being left in charge. Two of the
neighbors, whose families had been
aroused by the weird noise, entered
the premises, and, knocking at a
door, asked what the matter was.
A plaintive voice from within replied,
"Ghosts!" The party outside asked
the owner of the voice to open the
door, and shortly the old man ap
peared and explained in native what
the trouble was. He pointed inside,
and there stood the boy close to the
door, quaking with fear. The visit
ors, finding there was nothing more
than a case of nervous and super
stitious fear, administered some
soothing words to the distressed lad,
and, bidding him and his parent
aloha, returned to their beds. There
was no more disturbance of the
quiet of the night.

B LOOK OUT FOR HENRY
DAVIS & CO.'S SPECIAL AN
NOUNCEMENT ON ARRIVAL
OF THE S. S. MARIPOSA. a
A largo and happy company as
sembled at tho residence of Mr. W.
Auld, Palatna, last evening, to wit-
ness and participate in the wedding
and attendant festivities of Mr.
Charles Lucas and Miss Mary Ban
nister. The decorations of ever
greens were profuse, pretty, and
thoroughly in harmony with tho
occasion. The grounds were brightly
illuminated with torches. The bride
wore a dress of white satin and bro
caded silk, tastefully and Artistic
ally made, with a wreath of orange
blossoms and myrtle flowers on her
head. The bridal pair stood under
a bell of white roses and jessamines,
attended by Miss A. Bannister, sis
ter of the bride, and Mr. G. Lucas,
brother of tho groom. Tho Right
Rev. Bishop of Olba impressively
rehearsed tho marriage ceremony.
Two largCtablcs in tho room wore
literally crammed with an endless
variety of elegant, useful, and
music, and dancing followed the
marriage ceremonial. The full Royal
Hawaiian Band, under tho leader
ship of bandmaster Bergcr, was in
attendance. The newly married
couple go to reside in their newly
erected and elegantly appointed
house on School street, accompanied
by the good wishes of a very largo
circle of friends and acquaintances.
THE VATER WORKS.
A good deal of talk was occasion
ed about town to-day, by the ap
pearance of an official advertisement
stating that Mr. AV. R. Seal was
from this dato "alone authorized to
collect water rates and dues on ac
count of the Honolulu Water
AVorks." Euquiry elicits tho ex
planation given below. The Minis
ter of tho Interior intends to havo
tho wholo water service surveyed,
witli a view to making complete
plans of pipes, taps, etc., with rates
paid in each case, and cognate in
formation. For this purpose two
civil engineers arc to be employed,
and Mr. C. B. Wilson, Superintend
ent, will accompany one of them,
and Mr. AVm. Auld, Clerk, the
other. "With these important of
ficers absent from the office, it was
necessary to appoint an experienced
business man to conduct the finan
cial affairs of tho department. This
is the reason given for Mr. Seal's

THE BISHOP OF BEDFORD ON THE
Preaching in AVcstminster Abbey
on a recent Sunday morning, His
Lordship pointed out that wicked as
Sodom was, Capernaum's sin was
greater, in that it had resisted greater
grace, and our Lord asserted that
had Sodom had the privileges of
Copernaum it would have repented,
and said : How one wondered what
our Lord would have said about
London! Does it stand above or
below Sodom or Capernaum? It
seemed absurd at first to compare a
Christian city with Sodom. And yet
Capernaum, where our Lord worked
and spoke, was so compared. Per
haps one day tho question would be
answered in a very startling manner.
AVe had a multitude of churches,
tho bells of which were constantly
calling to worship, aud from whose
pulpits the name of Jesus was being
constantly proclaimed, while those
who were divided from the Church
of the land were zealous in setting
forth the truths of Christianity ; we
had.Bibles sold for halfpence, and
constant religious teaching alike in
our day and Sunday-schools. Yet
when the outward cloak of decency
and respect was stripped off as had
been done' for us so terribly the last
few days, what a horrible festering
corruption do we see lying beneath
the surface! "Was he wrong who
apostrophized London as "wealthy,
busy, restless, intellectual, degraded
. . . the birthplace and abode of
antichrists?" Shall such things be
told us and the Church stand by in
silence, with no word of scorn or
rebuke of solemn warning and lov
ing counsel? When these things
have been dragged to light we need
not be overcaref ul in scrutinizing the
method, and ho knew that it had
been done with an intense conviction
of the horrible necessity, and much
prayer. Those who most condemn
tho method of the revelation cannot
say that there was no need of tho
voice of warning. It wus so easy
to hide oneself in the crowd and
forget one's individuality ; but cities
and countries were made up of in
dividuals. Those to whom ho was
speaking shrunk, he knew, in horror
from tho grosser forms of Iniquity,
and many ho trusted had tho great
blessings of being shielded from the
knowledge of it. But were men
who did know to stand tkulking and
cowering? AVhat were they doing
to purify tho nation? "Where was
their righteous indignation against
horrors which made every honest
cheek burn? Where was the social
ostracism of the profligate? Where
was the chivalry to protect the inno
cent? Freeman, Julyai, 1BH&.
THE SCIENCE OF FITTING DRESSES.
The great dilllculty in fitting gar
ments (says tho Queen) is to pre
vent tho movements of the body being
cramped. Tbis dilllculty is entirely
obviated if iersevs are worn, and I
therefore btrongly recommend them.
Their adoption in the case of grow
ing girls is beneficial, not only from
point of view of health, but also
from that of economy; for, if
ordinary dress bodies are worn and
fit as they (should, they are very
soon outgrown, and must then bo
given up, or they will prove injuri
ous. Dresses should lit loosely
enough to allow full expansion of
tho lungs, and yet not too loosely,
or their weight will not bo properly
distributed ; and hero it is necessary
to observe that a dress which may
fit properly in one position of the
body may be unduly tight in another.
Dressmakers always fit their cus
tomers standing up, but from the
following measurements of a girl's
figuro it is obvious that this custom
requires some reform: Standing
erect, with little air in tho lungs, tho
waist measured 21in. ; with the
lungs fully expanded, 22Ain. ; and
stooping forward, with the lungs
still expanded, no less than 24in.
Now, as a great part of the girl's
time is unfortunately spent in stoop
ing over books, drawing, or the
pianoforte, it may be readily Under
stood that this natural thickening of
tho waist should bo allowed for in
her clothing. When a dress is being
fitted, tho girl should be made to
put herself into a variety of posi
tions in order to see whether it is
perfectly comfortable in all of them.
The dress bodice should always per
mit both arms to be raised straight
up above the head, and this position
should be tried when it is being
fitted on. Some of the prevalent
faults which prevent this movement
being accomplished are that the
dress is cut too long on the shoulder
and too tight in the armholcs, while
the side scam is not long enough
from the waist to the armpit, and, if
the plan suggested be adopted, these
can be remedied in time.
A decision has been arrived at to
hold another Temperance Festival
at AVellington on or about tho 25th
of January next, to establish an
Alliance for New Zealand similar to
the United Kingdom Alliance at
Home. Sir William Fox will take
a part in the demonstration if he re
turns fron England in time, and so
will Mr. Glover, the well-known
temperance lecturer, who is shortly
expected hi New Zealand, where ho
has1 been engaged to lecture, on tem
perance for a period. The Alliance
will not limit its members to tee
totallers, and anyone who wishes to
join may do so by paying five shil
lings per annum. The fee for the
afllliation of Temperance Societies
will be one guinea per annum.
Gen. Grant's height, as given by
Col. Frederick D. Grant in a letter

inches; weight, In April, 18G1, 135
pounds ; in June, 1865, 142 pounds.
Eli W. Blake of New Haven,
ninety-one years old, witnessed the

chusetts coast from the British.
