taking besides a good cargo, 150
passengers 01 cabin and Oo steer
age. A few moments previous lo
12 o'clock, before all the passengers
were on hoard, and while a number
were on the ship, who had no inten
tion of tioing, the steamer began to
move, carrying tho gang-plank with
her. Tucic was a se; amble of Seve
rn! persons to got on' board, Captain
Pierce taking the lead by climbing
up the side. Tho-e on the steamer
who wanted to come ashore began to
look frightened. It seemed pi city
much as though they would be car
ried off. Soon the steamer came
back, the gang-plank was put in po
sition a'jaiu and then there was an
other scramble of a score of persons
to get aslioie. While the steamer
was nguiii drifting from the wliaif
Custom House Olllcers boarded her
and had a lot of Chinese baggage
thrown on to the dock. The China

A YACHTING PARTY.
Mr. Robert Louis Stevenson, the
famous author, left .San FiuucUco
on the 17th of last June in the yacht
Casco, hound for the Marquesas
Islands. Fiom thence thu luute is
to Tahiti, Samoa, and finally, after
a. cruise of several months, it is the
intontiou of the novelist to slop in
Honolulu, making a long stay. The
yachting party consist of Mr. and
Mrs. Stevenson, Mrs. Thomas Ste
venson, tho author's mother, and
Lloyd Osbournc, his step-son. Their
lirst plan was to eomo directly to
Honolulu, bringing with them .Mrs.
J. D. Strong, the' daughter of Mrs.
Stevenson, but as they wished to
make a lengthy stay hero, they have
saved it like a bonne buxicho for the
last. It is a pleasure to know that
such a graceful writer is coining lo
do justice to our islands, and as his
articles are copied immediately by
the leading English and American
will go broadcast to the world.
The colored minstrel troupe
J marched from the steamer lo the
Opera House at 11 o'clock this
morning, with their band playing.
A crowd followed and all the clerks
and bosses on Foit stre-1, ran out
of doors to get a look at the troupe.
The Drum-Major with his silver
headed baton was the center of at
traction, but when ho tossed it very
high and failed to catch it, proba
I) y a murmur of disappointment was
heard. The company gave a show
in the Opera House at 12 :!10 o'clock
this aticrnoon. Thu house was
jammed full in every pait not a
foot of sanding room left. Thun
ders of applause from the audience
