,On Tuesday, June 23d, in accordance witb
the Instructions of the Board, four schools
were examined In the church building at

these schools, It would appear that tbey have
not retrograded, as some idle reports which

more competent one be found residing in
that part or the'dUtrict. f -
On Wednesday, four schools were exam
ined in the church at- EaumakapUL Two'
were from Moanalua, under the charge re
spectively of Halll and Malaki; one from
Eallbluka, and one from Eapalama. Ofthese
schools, that of Eapalama was regarded by
tbeCommlttee1as being the least commenda
ble; They onld express their entire appro
bation of that of Moanalua, under tbe In
struction of.SallL This school is not,
however, very far advanced in the studies
pursued. The principal reason which tbe
Committee found for tbelr approval of this
school, was the fact that tbe pupils appeared
to be thoroughly proficient in tbe branches
taught, and familiar with tbe books In which
they were Instructed. Their studies had not
been hurried through, in order that they
might co to higher branches. Such a course
of education is the proper one, in order that
what is taught may be thoroughly learned.
Some teachers, however, are very anxious to
get speedily Into tbe higher branches, In
order, probably, that they may gain praise
thereby. But etsjalnlng forward prematurely
can not result beneficially. There Is nothing
like teaching the pupil thoroughly, iu one
branch of study, and when he is proficient
in that, then let him go higher.
On Thursday, alto at Kaumakaplll Church,
five schools were examined, viz.: Kawalaho
K., Manoa, Panoa, Eamakela, and Maemae;
of which schools, the most advanced was
that of Kawalahao K-, under the charge of
EalaulL This school was found to be in
a good state of efficiency, and tbe scholars
well advanced in their studies. Some of tbe
scholars had reached the study of Algebra.
In the girls1 school of Eamakela, under the
tuition ol Mrs. Kahuna, the pupils were
found well-advanced in menta arithmetic
and geography. The schools of Maemac aud
Pauoa, composed of young children only,
are progressing, 'favorably. .In., regard, to
the school ol Maiioa, the Committee can not
approve of the system adopted of advancing
the scholars too hastily from one study to
another, without tbe firtt being thoroughly
understood. Littlo good can, result 'from
such a mode of .teaching.
On Friday, 'also at Eantnakaplli, thev girls'
school of Eawalahao, the Catholic girls'
school, the schools' Of Eallulkal, lUe'Catbollc
boys' school, and the school of Kaumakaplll,
were examined. All these schools were found
to have progressed. The most advanced school
In the study of mathematics was that of Ka
lihlkal, it being in advance of all tbe others
in the study of Algebra. Tbe Catholic sciiool
for boys, under the tuition of Lapello, was
also well advanced in Arithmetic, The girls'
school, under tbe charge of Xamalelua, had
advanced to the study of Algebra. The
specimens of needlework, by the Catholic
girls' school, were very creditable. This is
a branch of Instruction which it Is very de
sirable should be taught our female- youth,
In order that they may be prepared to fulfill
one of tbe important duties of wives aud
The scholars were examined in Reading,
Writing, Geography, Mental and Written
Arithmetic; and in some of tbe schools pre
viously mentioned, Algebra. Music, also, is
studied in all the schools. Some declama
tions were heard, but no original orations.
The greater portion of the children In all the
schools bad made good progress in Reading
and Geography, and we observed with satisr
faction that, hi: tbe latter study, tbe Geogra
phy of our own Islands was first studied and
made familiar to' the pnplla before that of
other countries. In Mental and Written
Arithmetic, some of the schools were, quite
proficient, while others were not so well ad
vanced. The principal reason of the lack of
progress In the latter is, Jn our oplnioo, as
stated before, to be attributed to tbe prac
tice permitted of -skipping hastily from one
branch' of a subject to another. Those of the
scholars who bare pursued the study of Al
gebra have made good progress. In Writing,
some very good spcclmens.of clear and plain
hands were exhibited.
In reviewing tbe state of the Government
Common Schools of this district, it is ap
parent that tbey have progressed In a ratio
quite equal to what might be expected, con'
sideriug the position In life of,tIie scholars.
Formerly, there were to be found in the
schools grbwn youths, who, being well ad
vanced In their studies, carried off ali tbe
honors fur proficiency and industry. At tbe
present time, however, tbe majority of the.
scholars sre small children, very few of the,
older class attending. They have not, how
ever, retrograded'on this account.
During, the examination .days. It was no
ticed that parents tt'.ok pride in dressing their
children neatly' and cleanly, as has always
been the custom on such occasions,
Before concluding this Report, the Com
mittee beg leave to make a suggestion,
which, to tb'eir minds, is an important one,
and that Is, that in order to improve tbe
minds of the pupils, they should not.be con
fined to text book) alone, but should btn
structed also In tbe study of composition
writing. A fair knowledge of bow, properly,
to express one's thoughts on paper can not
but prave of great advantage In after life.
The Committee did not observe In any of
the schools that composllion-wrillng formed
a part of the studies, and it Is probably
taught only at the Lahalnalnna Seminary,
the. Female Boarding School at Walalula,
and at Miss Bingham's School, at Eawalahao.
In order; however, to a successful study of
composition-writing, the pupil must first ac
quire a knowledge of Grammar and Punctu
ation." The Initiation of this study should
no longer be delayed, for it Is &!gbly import
ant that those who may be called upon to
address the public, cither in an assembly or
through the press, should know how-to ex
press themselves In a proper manner.
Tour Committee were much pleased to
observe that the gymnastic art has been In
troduced into some of the schools; and if
practicable, it should be extended to allt
In reviewing the general aspect of the
Government "Schools or this district, the
Committee are of the opinion that education
has prospered, snd they consider that tbe
Board of 'Education deserve -praise for their
exertions in. tbe cause of education, for the
perpetuity of the peace and. Independence of
the Kingdom depends. In no small degree,
upon the intelligence of the people.

ESPECIAIXT TO THE HAWAIIAN GAZETTE.
Sax Fuascisco, June 27, 18C3.
I have very little news of an Important
character to communicate in this letter, aud
therefore propose to make It brief.
It cannot be said that we have regularly
entered upon tbe political campaign until we
bear from the -4th of July Democratic -National
Convention. In the meantime specu
lation is rife as to who will be its nominee
tor tbe Presidency.
So far as we can form an opinion from the
conllictingreports or tbe Eastern presswbose
tone Is greatly regulated by tbe Washington
correspondents, Chase has gained the Inside
track. The services he rendered tbe Presi
dent on tbe Impeachment trial brought blm
first prominently into Democratic notice, and
when It came to be generally believed that
his influence secured the conversion or, I
might lather soy corruption or two or more
Seuators, and by their dlsaffcctlonacquilted
Mr. Johnson, all at once he was recognized
as au idol, and bozannas shouted in his praise.
Taking advantage or the popular feelin'g, the
crafty Chief Justice rrom time to time caus
ed bis opinions and .expressions to be pub
lished, Intimating ou what conditions be
would be willing to accept tbe Democratic
nomination, until ih this manner he has ac
tually created a powerful parly which speaks
or blm as tbelr decided choice for the Presi
dency, without iff, ands or qualifications.
Here Is the platform be enunciates, and
which, most remarkable to relate, does not
seem at all distasteful to the leaders of tbe
Democracy in this city. He fays:
" Universal suffrage as recognized by dem
ocratic principles, tbe i-yuulation or which Is
to be left In the several States, under the
Constitution of the United States, to them
selves; universal amnesty arid tbe complete
removal oi an oisauiiuies on account, oi par
ticipation In the late rebellfriu not only us a
ibst and wise measure or public policy, but
necessary to me uenenciai administration ol
lueiiovernmem in tue aiaies recently involv
ed In chil war witb the United States ;,aTull
and satisfactory re-establisbmeut of the prac
tical relations of those States with the active
States or the American Union; nil military
government in any State of tbe Union in
time Af peace, as this is incompatible with
the principle or civil liberty established by
tbe Constitution, nor can the trial of private
citizens oy .Military unmmlssions he tolera
ted by a people jealouB of their freedom and
desirfng.to be free; taxes to be reduced as
far us practicable, collected impartially and
with strict economy, apportioned as tbey
uear un properly raiuer man on jaoor, ana
wuilu all, national oDligauous should be non
et! ly and exactly fulfilled, no special privi
leges should be allowed to any classes, indi
viduals or corporations."
" Universal suffrage 1" Imagine the Dem
ocracy going into a Presidential coritest with
that inscription on their banners I The "nig.
ger" acceptedl tbe "white man's govern
ment" Idea abandoned! the war for free
dom and an undivided nationality justified 1
Every "principle of the post abandoned;
every denunciation of the "Radical Rump"
'and tbe "butcher Generals" denied; every
falsehood uttered against the motives or the
loyal preservers or the country- taken bsck!
tbe party, In fact, abjectly confessing that it
has not, and never had a higher- ambition
than tbe possession of the spoils, and that
for tbe obtainment of these it is willing to
stultify and degrade Itself to tbe lowermost
depths or pity and contempt. And Cbapi
what Is bis position! There Is not one or
his old .admirers who does not deem him
raise to his professions of tbe past, and a
traitor to his parly. It Is a sad comment
npon tbe corruption of political organizations
and the Integrity of human character toplace
the natnes iu conjunction, DmiocracyChaa,
and reflect upon tbe aspect they present to
tbe American people."
Reconstruction has been practically Inaug
urated" by the admission of Arkansas into the
Union. Her Senator and Representatives
bavo been regularly inducted to the legisla
tive privileges of the two houses of Congress.
When tbe bill was sent to A. J., be vetoed
it, of course, but it was subsequently passed
over his head by the requisite two-thirds ma
jority in the Senate and House, Florida,
Louisiana, Alabama, and three or four other
or the seventeen States will be brought back
to their allegiance and full rigMs as members
of the Union before the adjournment of tbe
present session of Congress.

Loxoox, June 20th. To-day being the an
niversary of the accession, of her Majerty
Queen Victoria to the throne of England, it
was observed as a hliday in, this metropolis.
It was also duly observed by appropriate
salutes throughout the realms of the British
Government. The city was gaily decorated
with flags and streamers, naval vessels as well
as the mercantile marine of all nations have
been profuse in the display of colors. Im
mense crc-wds filled tbe streets, all intent main
ly upon witnessing tbe grand review of volun
teers by the Queen and Eoyal. family, at
Windsor, toward which point they bad been
wending their way on numerous railroad trains.
The,'day was made a special occasion ror thp

have been arriving in large numbers rrom dif
ferent points. Salutes were fired from W.ind
edr Castle, and other prominent Government
places, at sunrise, noon and sunset,,' The bar
rack's at Windsor were gaily festooned and
decorated, and the 'troops were in fall dress
uniform for the review. The weather' was
comparatively fine, although tbe morning was
threatening, which ha J the effect of preventing
many thousands from attending, but with the
eiceptivn of a slight shower, nothing to mar
the splendor of the day occurred..
Tbe troops in line numbered twenty-seven
thousand of different arms, and, while being
reviewed .by Her Majesty and brilliant suite of
generals and officers of the royal household,
presented a scene of grandeur seldom If ever
.before witnessed in this country. After march
ing past anil tainting the Vueen and royal cor
tege, the troops paid a marching salute to the
"object (?) of the 'grand jubilee which' took
place In 1820, then- defiled over a pontoon
bridge constructed across the Thames by the
Royal Engineers, -where they 'were dismissed.
Tbe throng was immense. Tbe Queen and
royal family ntro serenaded with marked en
thusiasm by the'niyal bands, and tbe day con
cluded with festivities and reunions by civil
and military organizations.

HurrlcnJae ixt tbe Mauritius!.
The Island of Mauritius has suffered daring
the post-year' from a "variety -of 'disasters.
Hardly recovered from a. pestilence which
carried off thousands of the inhabitants, a
hurricane.swept over the Island and destroy
ed thousands of dollars worth of property.
Tbe following letter glreitnn'accoiiit of the
.effect of the. storm, and puts the loss on the
expected sugar crop of the year from fifteen
to thirty per eent.
In a dispatch dated March 17, Sir IL Bark
ley, Governor of the. bland of Mauritius,
gives the following account of the destruc
tive hurricane which occurred tbtWbn the
11th and 12th of that month:
On the morning of the. 11th nit, the
barometer, which bad been for several days'
below thltly degrees, began steadily to de
scend furtherrand.the strength of the south
east trades to Increase. TbiS lasted all day
and throughout tbeinlgbt, bat It was not-an-tll
noon ol the 12th tbat the"fufl fury'o'ffllie
gale was felt; the wind' beginning about the
same time, to veer In tremendous gusts to
wards the north,- reaching before Sunset tbe
opposite point of tbe compass from which It
had started tbe northwest. Its force dnrlng

largest trees torn up by" the' roots or broken

ground; church towers and bclfreys fell;
mansions of tbe better-class collapsed oer
their, affrighted Inmates, or were stripped
wholly or-pirtlally.i)f their rootlng;twbile
tbe camps of estates' laborers, and jhops and
dwellings of the'general population, both In
town and country, were literally blown to
pieces. Tbe Government House of Rednlt,

In the town Itself, three cTmr'cbes two Pro

one Roman Catholic, were reduced to rnlos,
and hundreds or houses were destroyed.
Tbe gasworks arq expected to be closed for

or tbe public buildings that have not more
or less suffered. But It Is on the railways

A better illustration of the force of the

tbe ordinary roads and bridges Is not yet '
ascertained, accounts having not been re
ceived from some districts, but It Is knpun
to be "very considerable. The Injury to tbe
sugar cultivation has been enormous, tbe
diminution in the probable yield being vtri-
relied orr. Vtbrtsents atJ thelowest a loss of
not far short or lull a million sterling. Much,
however, Ill'debeird orr the nature of the

be feared that some planters will not have
means orerrdll to do so. and 'that tbe dis
tress of the agricultural interest will be
fearfully aggravated. This .must increase
tbe destitution and misery of thu rest of the
community, which had previously arrived at
a terrible pitch, and I .almost shrink from
contemplating the saof prospects before us,
for some months to .come, at any rate. I
deem it no exaggeration, from what,!, have
seen 'and from' tho' reports' X bard received

the hurricane there were fully fifty thousand
