A BOILER GONE WRONG.
The Kilauea Hou on her last
down trip, on Friday night, was
spoken by the Iwalani in Molokai
channel, and asked to take a letter to
her (the Iwalani's) agents in Hono
lulu, notifying them that something
had happened to tho boilers, but
that they need feel no apprehension
for the steamer's safety, nor need
they send any assistance, as the
damage could be repaired, and
steam would probably be got up tho
next morning. When seen by the
Kilauea Hou tho Iwalani was drift
ing about the channel, but refused
any offers of assistance.
On Saturday last the Honolulu
and Vandalia teams of baseball
tried conclusions at the Makiki re

course of people was there to wit

from expressions frequently heard
that the game was unusually inter
esting. . The Hawaiian band enliv
ened the scene by discoursing mu
sic. At the finish the score stood,
Honolulu, 21, Vandalia 17. This is
the fifth game with the men-of-war
teams in which the Honolulu's have
come off victorious.
BLUE RIBBON LEACUE.
The entertainment given by the

night was not largely attended,
owing no doubt to other attractions.
The programmo was given by the

the songs and choruses wero exe
cuted in excellent spirit. The clos
ing address was delivered by the
Rev. II. II. Gowen in his usual
pleasing stylo. He complimented
the crew of tho Caroline for the
manner in which they had carried
'out their part of the programme,
and thanked thorn for tho assistance
they had rendered the League in
their entertainments, during their
WASHED OFF THE ROCKS.
The steamer Waialoalo, which ar
rived yesterday from Kauai, brought
news of a Portuguese woman having
been washed off tho rocks at Kilau
ea, last Tuesday morning, and
drowned. Tho woman was fishing
at the timo and was accompanied by
one of her children, a six-year old
boy. The boy having become tired
wailiiie for his mother, returned to
tho plantation and said nothing,
until nn older brother asked him
wlii'io his mother was, Tho child
then said she was hi the witter.
Parties went down to the place to
ook for the woman, but could not
find her. Tho next day a boat
cruised about looking for the body,
but without finding it. Up to the
time of tho leaving of tho Waialcalo
tho remains had not been recovered.

.HAWAIIAN OPERA HOUSE.

The musical and literary enter
tainment, got up at short notico and
with but littlo timo for rehearsals,
in aid of the funds of the British
Benevolent Society, at tho Hawaiian
Opera House, last Saturday even
ing, was attended and enjoyed by
nn audience which pretty well filled
the house, excepting upstairs, where
the attendance was slim.
At the lifting of tho curtain, Mr.
T. 11. Walker appeared on the stage,
and in a few and happily chosen
words expressed thanks, in the narao
of the British Benevolent Society,
for tho cheerful response to tho call
of "Sweet Charity," both by those
who volunteered their services to
entertain and tlioso who contributed
to be entertained ; at the same timo
outlining the evening's programme,
which, through an oversight, had
not been printed for distribution in
Dr. Jcssen, of II. I. R. M. S.
Razboynik, opened the concert with
a couple or three short piano solos.
This gentleman appeared a second
time, later in the evening, in the
same capacity, as piano soloist; and
each time, by his skilful playing
won appreciation, as indicated by
noiseless stillness in the audience,
followed by hearty applause.
Miss Mablc Rhodes sang a solo,
"Marguarite," very sweetly; and
Mrs. Paty vocalized "Tell me my
heart" in that same pure, clear,
sympathetic, well-modulated voice
which has so many times and for so
many years pleased the cars and
touched tho sentiments of Honolulu
audiences. Miss Rhodes and Mrs.
Paly were both encored. "The
Romany Lass" was pleasingly sung
by Mr. T. May; and "'Tis not
true," by Mr. F. M. Starkcy, who
A duet, "Sec tho pale moon,"
sung by Mrs. Paty and Mr. Starkcy,
was unsatisfying, in tho sense that
the audience wanted more, aud when
the lady and gentleman retired per
sistently called for their return.
Two part songs, "Since first I
saw j'our face" and "The Bells of
St. Michaels," were exceedingly ac
ceptable. Mrs. P. Jones, Miss 5list,
Miss Von Holt, Miss M. Rhodes,
Mr. T. R. Walker, Mr. T. May, Mr.
Starkcy, and Mr. Baird wero the
Piano accompaniments were played
respectively by Mr. Myron Jones,
Mrs. T. R. Walker, and Miss Von
The literary part of the entertain
ment consisted of three recitations
by Sir William Wiseman, of II. B.
M. S. Caroline. The first, of a
pathetic nature, and descriptive of
a little girl's faith, whoso father was
a soldier and had gone to the war,
was rendered in pure English diction
pleasing to the ear, and in a way
which evidently touched the audi
tors' hearts. Tho other two were
of a comic nature, and produced
considerable merriment. In the first
of these, Bret Harto's "Cicilly,"
Sir William exhibited some pecu
liarities of American diction; and
in the second, "Zagazias," which
immediately followed, in reponsc to
a recall, English provincialisms were
brought out in strong contrast. The
reciter was enthusiastically applaud
ed at the close of each piece.
THE ANTI-ASIATIC UNION.
Euitou Bulletin: The Anti
Asiatic Union lias for its object the
protection of the representatives of
Europeans living hero and the na
tive Hawaiians against the encroach
ments of a nation numbering 400,
000,000 inhabitants a nation so
immense in population that even
powerful countries like tho United
States and Australia fear the influ
ence of immigrants, that the teem
ing millions of China will gladly
allow to emigrate to any country
where they would bo received even
Tho effort of tho Anti-Asiatic
Union hero has been and is to have
laws passed that will not injure tho
sugar and rice planting intorcsts,
and at the samo timo stop the steady
stream of Chinese that has been
for years coming in competition
with our enlightened white laborers.
It is a well established fact that
the frugal Chinaman can savo mo
ney at wages on which an American
or Englishman would actually starve
Example: ten Chinamen rent a
houso in Honolulu 14 x 10 feet, with
a garret, for $11 per month, the
building being in bad location and
out of repair, and tho actual living
expenses for the ten men is $30.50
por month, besides their clothes,
tobacco and opium. And you see
that it only costs a Chinaman, when
ho is out of work, or trying very
hard to savo money, 81, 75 to live a
mouth. Ho only pays $5 taxes a
year, and many of them arc under
or over tho taxable ago, when tho
assessor finds them. While a man
with a family who is accustomed to
our more expensive modes of living,
has to pay at least tho $4.75 per
month for his meat alone, and can
not possibly livo for less than $12 jor
$15 a month. To talk of a white
man successfully competing with a
Chinaman as a mechanic or ordinary
laborer, is 6hcer nonsense.
After a careful bludy of tho prin
cipled of the Anti-Asiatio Union
every man in this country will cu-

dorse them, unless they happen to
bo engaged in wholesale business or
money lending and perhaps tho
practice of law: tho wholesale men,
because the Chinese merchants can
afford to pay them larger profits
than the European could, and tho
samo with the money lender, while
tho lawyers reap a rich harvest from
their Chinese friends who seem to
As I understand the Anti-Asiatic
Union, it wants no more Chinese ex
cept under a 3 or 5 years contract
to responsible planters, one fourth
of their wages to bo paid into tho
Government treasury, only to be
given their man when he cither re
ships for a like term or leaves the
country: All Chinamen hero to be
registered, and unless they can show
that they have some honorable way
of making a living, compel llieni to
cither ship or leave: Never renew a
licence when it has been proved that
the merchant is selling goods not
allowed to bo sold under his licence:
give no return passports.
Under these regulations the plant
ers can get their labor for much less
than they do now, and as every
Chinaman must show his receipt for
registering, a runaway will bo eusilj
found, as lie will have no receipt
and therefore must of necessity
cither ship or leave.
, I for one hope that tho Legislature
that is soon lo convene will do all
that the Anti-Asiatic Union asks in
regard to Chinamen ; but as lo the
Japanese, I for one, believe from
what I have seen of them that they
will assimilate and become good citi
zens, something that a Chinaman
will never do. Mechanic.
Excessively hot calm days and
magnificent moonlight nights have

an acijourncu meeting was ueiu in
Wilder's warehouse, at Kahului,
about bu persons present; nut only
a small amount 01
was clone, owing to tue length 01
the speeches. A mass meeting of
citizens took place last Thursday
evening at the Skating Rink in Wai
luku, which was attended by some
200 persons of different nationali
ties. The lovely moonlight evenings
have induced people to come out of
their wonted stay-at-home-ness, and
some highly enjoyable social gather
ings have relieved the dull monot
ony of rural life.
Last Tuesday, the usual monthly
"literary" of Makawao was held at
tho residence of Mr. and Mrs. II.
B. Bailey, at Kapalaia, where the
elite, beauty and talent of the dis
trict had a rendezvous, and enjoyed
a very pleasant evening.
The succeeding Thursday evening
a surprise party was given to Mr.
and Mrs. W. J. Lowrie at Grove
Ranch, in celebration of their 13th
wedding-day anniversary, and a
large crowd of guests from naiku,
Makawao, Spreckclsvillc, Kahului
and Wailuku gathered at the book

for its object the execution of tho

Minister of Marine and Colonies,
relative to the regulating definitely

At 0 a. m. the Governor went on
shore, having been preceded by
men from the Decres and Aorai, and
by a detachment of infantry. All
these troops wore placed under tho
command of Captain La Queue of
the Decres, and ranged in squares
around the flagstaff, on the summit
of which floated the colors of Ilua
hine. Addressing the population around
and before the Queen's palace, the
Governor, through tho intermediary
of the interpreter Cadoustcau who
translated his words with the utmost
precision, explained that the con
vention of June 1847 concluded be
tween France and England on the
subject of the leeward islands was
abrogated by mutual consent of the
two contracting governments. That
France had become absolute
mistress of her movements in these
latitudes, and that, under these
conditions it becomes the duty of
tho Governor, in the name of the
Republic, to accede to the request
formulated by the majority of the
population of Iluahine for the an
nexation of that island to France.
Tho Governor added that on this
da, he would forget the troubles
rccentlyformcnted by some of our
adversaries, who had momentarily
deposed the old Queen, who was de
voted to France, to replace her by
ono of her daughters.
Mr. Lacascade announced a gen

no new act of indiscipline vis-avis
