while I was away. ' Mr. Woitn

had to nUeiid the meetings morning

however, got along pietty will with

is belter, but very weak. We have
a severe epidemic of inlltieiizu.
which has extended to cveiy Maud

before we started for Morlloik.
The woik was much inoic dilhcult
everywhere, us often the coughing
and nose blowing ueaily drowned
our voices. Here ut home we hear
of two deaths, thu teuchera have all
suffered much, and some of the
scholars' are down silk. I hope the
worst may be over.
We shall 8t;n t upon our woik for
the next year with bigh hopes. The
responsibility of earing lor clothes
and feeding, as well as touching
these fourteen Mortluck scholars, in

heavv. but we trust we shall be
helped through. We taise here our

AN ECCLESIASTICAL PARLIAMENT.
When the chui cites in the Ha
waiian Islands, established by mis
' sionaries of the American Board,
were thought able, to manage their
own affairs without any control over
their proceedings by the missionary
society, the churches on the various
islands werejmited in Island Asso
ciations for the management of mat
ters of common interest. The Gen
eral Association, now holding its
twenty-third annual session, is the
union of these various Island Asso.
ciatious, assembled for the discus
sion and direction of all matteis
pertaining to the welfare and pro
gress of the whole body. All its
business is transacted in thu native
language. The Hawaiian pastors
and lay delegates ftom the various
associations form a company of in
telligent and Influential men, as is
evident from their appearance, the
style of tho reports they present
and the orderly manner in which
their business is transacted.
