NEW YEAR'S RECEPTION.
His Excellency Geo. W. jMcnill,
United Stntcs Minister Resident, and
Mrs. Merrill -will lie at home at the
Aiuciicnn Legation, on New Year's
afternoon and evening, from 1 o'clock
until 10, to the residents of Hono

; .custom, this reception will be for
ladies as well as gentlemen.
' THE FOREIGN MAIL SERVICE.
There is reason for grave suspi
cion that the Oceanic Steamship
Company is wilfully" imposing upon
this kingdom in regard to the mail
service between hdru and the Coast.
On the first trip of the S. S. St.
'Paul there was a great deal of com
plaint heard in business circles that
her return trip was so timed as to
be of no value to correspondents or
.shippers. She left here just in
advance of the Oceanic-Union line
steamship from the Colonies for San
Francisco. It was urged on behalf
of the Oceanic Company, then, that,
owing to the peculiar position in
which it had been placed by the
unexpected turn in the arrangements
for carrying out the Colonial mail
contract, lime .was required to en
able tlu) Company to resume the
regular fortnightly service to and
from the Coast, by getting a steamer
in between the monthly trip of the
Colonial liners. This plea induced
us to refrain from expressing the
dissatisfied opinion thai was very
-prevalent. However, the lapse of
time discloses no effort making to
fulfil the mail engagement with this
kingdom, but rather a deliberate
scheme of frustrating the conditions
of the subsidy granted by our Le
gislature, and, it really appears, of
running opposition with the combin
ation line, preferring the whole, so
far as it can be gained, to a share of
the freight receipts. AVc should be
very glad to have another't'xplana
tion of the fact that next month, as
the present one, the supplementary
steamship sails just in advance of
the through vessel from the Colo-
. nies the St. Paul being a. dvertised
to leave here on the 15th and the
Alameda on the ICtli of January.
Possibly the fortnightly service has
proved "unprofitable to the Company,
even with the good round subsidy
paid bjF this" kingdom. If that is
the reason for the default in keeping
it up, nobody but the directors of
the Company should hayo a right to
complain. At the same time the
public, in that event, should be
taken into the confidence of the
company, as, then, without expect-
utiou of a fortnightly service there
would not be the disappointment
and inconvenience at pruscnt exist
ing. If, on the other hand, the
-interruption in the service is due to
a decision of the Company in a
question merely of greater or less
selfish advantage", the Government
will be guilty of infidelity to public
interests if it does not insist upon
the full execution of the contract.
THEY DO CARE.
Our friendly con temporary The
Friend says, "That the natives of
most of those islands 'do not care a
bauble who governs them, so they
are loft to follow their dwn'ways,' is
about as far fiom the truth, and
about as solf-contradictory a sen
tence as could well be penned. " As
wo partly, endorsed tho opinion ex
pressed in tho ubove quotation from
'the S. K. JhillcCiu, wo arc only too
glad to observe that so high an
authority on Hawaiian tiffuits as
Hev. A. O. Forbes, Editor of tho
Mission department of Tho Friend
Is of tho opinion that tho natives uro
jiQt so iudifiacuttoinibllo interest 3
as they aro generally supposed to
bo. The more they caro about such
matters, the better Is the prospect
of needed local reforms being con
summated. EDITORIAr NOTES.
Wc wish all the rcadois of the
Daily Uui.li-tin a Happy New Year,
and many returns of tho season.
A party of Japanese immigrants
is promised early in the year, to
sail from Yokohama by the City of
Peking on the 28th of January.

CHRISTMAS ON KAUAI.
Christinas gatherhigs, even when
confined to family circles and their
more immediate relations, are always
the gladdest meetings throughout the
year; and usually leave the most
lasting impressions on the minds of
young people. IJut when the en
nobling influences of the unselfish
life of Him, of whose birth Christ
mas is the annual celebration, leads
us to look out beyond the circle of
those who are most dear to us by
the lies of nature, upon the less
favored .ones, and lend a helping
hand to gladden their hearts, as well
as the heaits of our own families,
the sjood accomplished thereby
may be immeasurable.
It was my good fortune to be
visiting two of the.largc plantations
on Kauai, on the twenty-fourth and
twenty-fifth of the present month,
where I witnessed scenes, the des
cription of which should be brought
before the writers of the San Fran
cisco Chronicle, who have sought to
villify our planters, and dub them
slave-holders. Those writers ought
to come and sec, then flee and hide
their diminished heads forever.
Arriving at Kilauca Plantation on
Christmas Eve, I found Mr. and
Mrs. Maclle, their governess, and
several young gentlemen, busily en
gaged in picparing a Christmas tree
iov the children of the laborers em
ployed on the plantation. Each and
every one of those ladies and gentle
men were as much engrossed jn
their undertaking, as if there had
been millions of money in it.
The tree was placed in the little
church, and well laden with suit
able fruit for the occasion. And
although the stripping of the tree
was not to take place till the even
ing, crowds of little boys and girls,
full of expectation, were gathered
around the door of the little cculicc
before midday, where they stayed
all afternoon, and sought to while
away the time by frolic and play till
evening, when they each received
ing the urgent necessity of pushing
the sugar works to a speedy com
pletion, a halt was called and Christ
mas made a holiday for all con
cerned. Col. Spalding and his
corps of assistants had prepared
sport for the day in the shape of
horse and foot races on the ICapaa
plains. The weather being fine and
races good, a very enjoyable day
was spent by the hundreds present.
In the meantime, while the Col. and
his hums were carrying out their
part of the programme, Mrs. Spald
ing was at home superintending the
preparation for the festivities of tho
evening. Oh ! for a Saji Francisco
Chronicle reporter to see for him
self, and tell the truth for once, Hint
the number of slaves on so largo an
estate is actually reduced to two,
viz., Col. and Mrs. Spalding.
At about 7:30 v. m., the guests
began to arrive at tho .residence
from all parts of tho estate ; they
wero principally the working men
with their wives and children. All
were as cordially received, as if they
were on an equality with the owners.
The Christmas tree, a very largo
one, was placed in a commodious
room upstairs. It was loaded down
with presents, but it would have re
quired a large forest tree to carry
all the gifts. Many had to bo laid
on the lloor, and on tables around
the room. The guests visited this
room before dinner to see the grand
display. From there the gentlemen
escorted tho Jadies to seats at tho
several tables spread in the spacious
dining hall, and the room adjoining
it. The exercises and sports of, tho
day had sharpened tho appetites of
all present, and full justice was done
to the well-furnished tables,
After dinner, the guests repaired
to the Christmas tree, and the host
and hostess, assisted by several
ladies and gentlemen, proceeded to
harvest jt in a most mhth-provoking
manner, all piescnt receiving perfect
avalanches of gifts. One of tho
most oppoituuc ai tides presented,
was a chalk crayon in a silver case:
the recipient was tho genial host,
who, it scorns, over since he began
to remodel his sugar'works, has had
a mania for chalk ; he has during
tho last two months used much of
that article, making diagrams for
his wo-kincii. Tho.forco of habit
brought this articjc immediately into
uso, mid before long ho coats, dint
covered ronuy a pair of broad b1iouI
dors, were marked with all kinds of
diagrams, and sugar-shipping marks.
When all tho presents were disposed
of, the remainder of the evening was
spent In singing and playing, till a
late hour, when all parted with the
impression thai a most enjoyable
day and evening had been spent,
a season not soon to be forgotten.
There is a pretty strong evidence
of color-blindness for two when a
green young innu marries u red
"Wind, is your circulation?" ask
ed the inquisitive Individual of the
editor. "Plood, principally," was
tho calm reply.

marriage to a pretty girl that what
