I hts followers. It teems, however, a matter
laJasac to sire a brief resume of the his

f P"6 knowledge of the
ob. isae three years ajo, the neat little
chardt at KilaiBu was built, by subscrip
tioa. upon Mrs. Jobastoa'a (now Mrs. Roys)
Uaet, aad a ktrs propcrtloa of the amouut
required was subscribed by the followers of
Kaoaa, who, at that time; were member of
the easrea, in good standing. Mr. Paris,
the Pastor preached on certain Sundays, and
Kaoaa, who was, I betters, one ofthe Lotus,
would preach on others. For a time, all
west oa smoothly enough, until Kaoea be
gan to tatrodaee some slight innovations In
the form of worship, which were opposed
by Mr. Paris and a minority of the consre
gatioa, and the church became split into
two lacfioas. Although the church was
beitt by geaerai subscription, and Kaocaand
his party were the majority, Mr. Paris, and
tho&e thtckiag with him", claimed the exclu
sive nse of the can reh, to the expulsion of
thelr oppoaeats. This was resisted by the
I HaosaHes. As they were subscribers to the
bsiMicg, and no trustees had ever been
elected, aor any charter granted by the Gor-
j erament, they contended that they hid a
right to worship God In their own war, la
coaenoa witfc those who dltiered from them.
The ftcd coatiaued to increase, and Kaona's
oHaea4s. aadinsr ther had no law on tfifir
oppofMBts, aading they had no law ou their
side to justify the expulsion of the Kaonaites,
resolved to take the law into their own
hands, asd fcstened up the door of the
caeree. shortly alter, the door was tnyste-
rioasJy toreed open, and the Kaonaites all
entered to worship. A warrant was then
Isssed against Kaocaand some of hi leaders,

The eae was heard before the District
Judge of i'orth Kona, who had occasion,
iauaedlatsly after the heariKr, to leave for
Hooolalu, aud la consequence deferred judg-
meat aaiu his return, and requested the
Sheriff not to confine them during Ms ab
sence. The prisoners were, however, put in
irons, asd piieed in prison at Nspoopoo, and
there kept for some nine days, until the re
turn of the Judge from Honolulu. They
were taken into court ironed, when the
Jodze immediately ordered the iron in h
takea oT, and then gave judgment for their
I dfeefcerge, and said, at the same time, that
SBOChi tale possession of the church In

Ia the opinion of Dr. GoUck, the native

firarinl and bitter spirit of the Kaonaites,
aad knowing the deadly enmity they bore

much-we may have heard, said, or read of
the modern so-called " humbug" of Spirit
ualism, hare never heretofore had a practical
demonstration of its effects. Now, however,
aa opportunity seems to have occurred here
at home to " test the spirits." Some three
weeks ago at farthest, a gentleman employ
ed In an establishment down town, had
occasion to do some writing after night
fall. While scribbling away with migh. and
mala he heard a noiseas of feet npoa tbe veran
da In front ofthe bouse.- Looking up, he saw
several curious-looking faces at the window
Immediately in front of where he sat, regard
ing Mm with eyes which sparkled with seem
ing expectancy. Going out on the veranda,
he found some four or five, individuals,
apparently of the kind known as dwarfs,
and he asked what was their business at
the office. No answer was returned, and
after some endeavors to get them to say
something.the clerk told them to be off about
their business, as his time was too precious
to waste In waiting Uselessly upon them, aad
so returned to his work in the office, the sup
posed dwarfs disappearing liar the time. Half
aa hour later, as the clerk was folding bis
papers previous to, leaving the office, his at
tention was again called to the window of
the veranda, when he saw the same array of
heads with sparkling eyes staring at him, in
creased by the addition of seTeral new
comers. He repeated his former questions,
both in English and Hawaiian, as to their
business, If any, and as before, received no
verbal answers, but merely a shaking or nod
ding of tbe bead, which was hung down.
Getting rexed at what he considered the atn
pidity of tLese people, the clerk orderedthem
to be off, with considerable heat, and ran to
wards them ia a threatening lltitude. He
was cot a little surprised to see them all
stand their ground quite manfaily, and to find
that when he approached near either or any
of them, the party suddenly and entirely
disappeared into thia air. Musing npon these
circumstances, the clerk closed the office and
retired to his home. The next night the tame
scene was repeated, and so on for several
eights la succession, induce til the poor clerk
was weU-aigh distracted from the nightly
disturbance and interruption. Finding that
continual threats and angry denunciation
had no apparent effect npon these strange in
truders, be changed his tactics and com
menced the plan of asking them what the
lawyers call "leading questions," ia answer
to which a simple assent or dissent was ex
pected. Ia this manner te obtained, by nods,
shakes, aad assenting smCes, the statements
of each, to the effect that they were formerly
native residents of this kingdom, sow dead,
who, ha ring learned that It was possible to
communicate with the living world throngh
a "medium," tad fixed npon him, the clerk,
as a fit person for that medium, aad were
therefore persistent ia their eadearors to
commentate through him. Here, thought
the clerk, a a genuine case oi Spiritualism,
about which I have heard aad read so ranch,
bat about which I have had and stlfl hare so
manydoaaU. To make a "long story short,
the "seancea coatiaued, tbe allendancc la

Mr. Editob: We are justly proud of our
Honolulu Fire Department. Composed as It
almost entirely is, of mechanics and men
vthogct their living by the sweat oftbeir
brow most essentially so in this sweaty
country men ho hava without exception
proved themselves prtXnpt, energetlcand
skillful, whenever we have been threatened
with the devouring element Very lew of
our active firemen have any personal Interest
In thetiroptrty which they thus volunteer to
protect, devoting their time and risking life
and limb without hope of reward for the
public good. Now I hold that the public
press'should be the exponent of the public
feeling in regard to our firemen, and gire
them praise whenever they deserve 1L An
alarm of fire occurred the other day No, 1.
Company were promptly on tbe ground, got
their hose, and proceeded to play, when
their hose burst; thongh fortunately In the
mean time, srrerol not mm buckets of water
had sufficed to put out the fire. The Adcrr
fiier, thus flippantly dismisses the matter
A fin alarm was given on Monday forenoon but,
bat it proved to b a cault fire, which w pat oat
Willi a tcclet of water.'
Our firemen are not greedy of praise, but
one must be either more or less than human
who would cot rather have bis exertions to
do good acknowledged than Ignored.

Staebisg Arnur. On Friday evening
last,.at about S o'clock, a stabbing affair oc
curred in the yard of the Eureka Hotel prem
ises, oa Hotel street. It seems that Robert
Atkin, an Englishman, carpenter on board
the British bark Gantang, recently arrived
from Liverpool, and John Scale, a Welshman,
seaman, on board the same ressel, had some
words together, resulting from an ill-feeling
which arose oa ship-board duringthe voyage.
On the evening in question, sereral persons
heard the two men ia altercation, aad went
away, not being present at the assault The
next heard of tbe affair was tha Atkin was
heard to say Tm stabbed!" and went into
Thompson's barbershop. Thompson, think
ing the man was. drank It stems that he
and Scale had both been drinking ordered
bim away, when he went into the French
barber's, near by. Here he was followed by
Mihht, a native constable, wbo, on exami
nation, found that the fact was as tbe man
had stated. The constable proceeded to
the Station-House, and informed the Marshal
aad bis Depaty, who went at once to where
tbe wounded man was. There was one stab
on the right side, which might bare been
fatal had not a rib turned the knife; one
flesh cut on the right fore-arm, received in
warding off the blow ; and a cut down the
back, of several inches in length, which,
though evidently well-intended, bad only
gone skin-deep. Dr. Buffcm having been
sent for, was promptly on hand, and dressed
the wounds, when Atkin was conveyed to
tbe Queen's Hospital by tbe Police, on tbe
Station-House Titter. During all this time
nothing was seen or heard of the party who
had committed the assault, and Atkin was
too much confused and excited to make any
intelligible statement. But Deputy-Martha!
Dayton, in bis search through tbe Eureka
House yard, found a sheath-knife, with blood
upon it, aad Immediately surmised that the
assailant was ablpmate of the injured man. j
Proceeding to tbe bark, which lay at the
wharf, some of tbe crew were called, wbo
Identified the knife as that of Scale. He was
found oa the fore hatch, apparently asleep,
and on being arrested, was found to have a
new knife in his abeatb, which bad never
been ntcd. On Monday morning. Scale was
brought before Police Magistrate Montgom
ery. and remanded until tbe pbyilcian than !
when the examination will take place.
IstroeTATTos or Snrrr. By the British
bark Gantang. Captain Griflihs, ten Merino
sheep, four rams and tlx ewes, were shipped
at Liverpool for this port. They were from
the Imperial farm of Bambouiliet, and hare
been obtained by His Majesty tbe
King tor bis
' 2 of these I
farm on ilolokal Unfortunately
ralnable animals died on tbe passage out,
aad the remaining eight bare tuffered a good
deal during a tea voyage of one hundred and
filly days. They are, bowerer, recovering
rapidly under the skillful care and attention
of Mr. Bemond, a French shepherd, wbo
came out with these animals, recommended
to His ifsjeaty, and wbo Is under contract to
take charge of them dnrlagfoar years. We
hall with pleasure this accession to the choice
stock of our Island!. There are many loca
tion that might be made available for sheep
farms, which could cot be applied to any other
purposes, asd the time may net be far distant
when weabari r-xport enough wool to pay for
all mr riothing of that descrfptloa.
