His Majesty took passage in the Steamer
Kilatiea, on Monday last, arriving at the wharf
witb characteristic promptness before the
regular hour for the vessel'b departure. He
received the usual salute from Punchbowl
Battery, and the war ships Challenger and Pe
terel manned their yards anil raised the Ha
waiian il.tj; in his honor. He debarks at Ma.
al.tea Bay, Maui, and will visit Wailukn, Ma-
kawao, and I'lupalakua, returning in the
Rtcaraer on Friday afternoon or evening. His
Eoyal Highness Prince Leleioboku also took
passage, intending to spend two weeks on Mo
lokai. Thi temperance reform, which has been
commenced under favorable auspices, seems to
be one of the necessities of the time. If, as
many believe, intcuierancc is spreading ainorn
the native people, and commencing to sweep
them off by thousands, like the measles epi
demic in Fiji, threatening to decimate if not
cxtrftgnish the remnant of a once powerful
and numerous race, then humanity demands
that some combined and systematic effort be
made to check its ravages. No one should hesi
tate to assist in the good work which has boen
inaugaratod under royal auspices, in the same
spirit, as if the effort wore to stay the meas
les or the small-pox. The object in cither
case is the sami', to alleviate the misory and
chock tho decrease of the native race. But
whilo wo heartily endorse every effort made to
benefit the alorigines,wc fear the basis on which
the present reform rests is not broad enough to
accomplish permanent good. The platform of
the Good Templar association total abstinence
from all that intoxicates is the only safe one
to adopt. If this could be introduced among
the native people, much good might result

Thk invitation of the French Consul for as
sistance in lichalf of those who have been ren
dered destitute by tho recent floods in the
South of France, will, we doubt not, find a re
sponse among our citizens. We, in this fa-
I vored archijclago, arc eculiarly exempt from
the disasters of floods and hurricanes, as well
as the terrific earthquake disasters, such as
have just been rocorded in Iceland and Central
America. The Iceland disaster is told in our
columns to-day, and is truly a dreadful calam
ity. Those who prefer can make their con
tribution! in produce, which will be disposed
of and tho proceeds remitted as tho gifts of
those sending them. Hawaiians as well as for
eigners arc Included in the Consul's invitation,
and will doubtless contribute their mites.
A Sea Moksteb J. J. Harwood, Master of the
British origan tine Fortunate, in dock at Liverpool,
Inserts that whilst on his passage from the
Sis Oraade. when in latitude S0 IS' North, aad
lougkade 48 OV West, hit ship was struck by a large-
fist whiah mad the vessel shake very much. Think
ing the see had bean merely struck by the tail of

smattar ; but, after diachargiag cargo at Runcorn, aid
aetahaf into the Canada half-tide dock, be found one
of the plank cads in tee stem split, aad oa closer x
aariaatioe be discovered thai a sword-fish had driven
bis sword completely throoat th plank. The fish in
its straggle broke the sword off level with tbe outside
of tbe vessel, and by its attack -upen the ship lost
nearly a feet ia length of the very dangerouj weapon
with which It was armed. Then is bo deatt that
this seauwhat singular uutuuiaiae tank alase arhea

On our fourth page will be found two inter
esting articles showing the progress of steam
in this ocean. Such ships as the Oceanic and
Belgic of the new China line, and the C'ty of
Peking and City of Tokio, of the China Mail
company, are the class of vessels which in a
few years will perform the carrying and pas
senger traffic of this ocean. We must be pre
pared for them when they come knocking at our
door and seek an entrance. This can only be
done by dredging the bar a few feet deeper
only four feti will answer. And the expense
of this, besides the first cost of a dredging
steamer, such as is usee! on the Clyde, and in
the Liverpool docks, will not be very great.
Then, the largest merchant steamers as well as
ironclad war sliiw can enter our port, and ad
mirals will make Honolulu their headquarters !
Trot Cbaixengeb sails to-day at noon,
homeward bound, via Hilo, Marquesas, Tahiti,
Valparaiso and Montevideo, expecting to reach
England in May next. During her cruise thus
far she has voyaged 46,684 miles or more than
twice the circumference of the globe. She has
yet to traverse more than 18,000 miles before
shf roaches home. Like tho D. S. Steamer
Hasslcr, which conveyed Prof. Agassiz from
New York to San Francisco in 1872 and 73,
and obtained thousands of rare specimens from
the deep sea, which have gone to enrich the
museums of Harvard and tho Smithsonian In
stitute, so the Challenger has secured and sent
home several hundred boxes of specimens from
the ocean and islands visited, which will add
greatly to the knowledge heretofore had of tho
inhabitants of sea and distant lands, and enrich
the British museums, which obtain these speci
mens. H lnle in tlic East Indies, or rather the
Mollucca group, a large number of birds of
paradise were obtained, some of them exceed
ingly rare and of the most exquisite plumage.
These were not dissected and stuffed, but put
into alcohol (which we learn is the best way
to preserve birds for transportation.) Regard
ing the wingless birds of Hawaii, Prof. Thomp
son informs us that wingless birds of the plo
ver variety are found in almost every group in
this ocean, and if the Hawaiian bird is like
them, it is not rare. Wherever the ship stops,
the search for specimens is renewed. So in
our harbor, a species of fish has boen discov
ered by the scientists of this vessel, which has
been supposed to be extinct. This discovery
alone is worth the slip's visit here, and should
servo as a hint to naturalists among us to
search our waters as well as our forests
for novelties. During their short stay hero
the officers of tho ship have received every
attention, and will cany away with them very
pleasant memories of Honolulu and her people.
Sib Abthtb Coupon, tho newly-appointed
Governor of Fiji, has ere this arrived at Le
vuka, and entered on the duties of his office.
An exchange, commenting on his departrue
from Sydney says : " Ho has by no means a
pleasant task before him, and will find his sub
jects the dusky portion thereof at any-rate
somewhat intractable. Multitudes of the na
tives have died of the measles since the cession
of the island, and the savages are possessed with
the superstition that the plague was a punish
ment on them for parting with their country.
Sir Arthur Gordon will find it hard to estab
lish anything like cordial relations with them.
And, indeed, it is by no means certain but that,
to some extent, their superstition has in it a
faint flavor of truth. It would appear as though
there really does exist some inscrutable law of
nature which ordains that the savage shall dis
appear as civilization marches onward. Con
tact with white men ever seems to make sava
ges more liable to disease, and less endued
with courage and endurance. Sicknesses, pre
viously unknown among them, break out and
kill them off in hundreds after they have mixed
with Europeans. This has been the case with
the American Indians, tho Sandwich Island
ers, with the Australian blacks who in the
second year of the colonization of 8ydney died
in hundreds from small-pox, a previously un
known disease among them and with the Fi
jian. The day will probably come when tho
whole world will be white or whitey-brown ;
and, following out the Darwin theory of devel
opment, taking our ancestors to have been
monkeys in the remote past, there will perhaps
come a time when the last form of human or
ganization will be tho European species of tho
The Friend for August lies before as, full,
as usual, of interesting topics. It is a pleas
ure to peruse a journal of this stamp, so very
different in its tone from snmo we might name,
whoso chief object seems to be to carp at oth
ers and misrepresent facts, overlooking their
own failings. In this respect, the Friend has
always taken high ground. Among its choic
est excerpts we clip the following from a pri
vate letter written by our King to a friend in
New York. The letter is dated " Iolani Palace,
May 29, 1675," and reveals the warm-heart
and kind spirit, which have always possessed
its royal author, and which are among the se
crets of his popularity. What is said in refer
ence to the treaty, expresses the sentiment of
all, natives and foreigners.
" During my visit to the United States, more
especially in the city of New York, I had the
pleasure of mectinir you airain after the lapse
of twenty-five yean. Our meeting was one of
real eniovincnt to me, as recalling to memory
the scenes of our oarly childhood. I assure
you that I will ever bear in grateful rememb
rance your kindness, as well ob tho gracious-
ncss of the American people during my visit to
your country. The free offering of a treaty of
commercial reciprocity is another act of gra-
ciousncss, as formerly you lifted us from tho
bonds of heathenism, and now Irom national
poverty. The moral benefit is as great aa we
hope to obtain from the treaty, and binding
more ttrmly the lnemlly relations existing be
tween the two countries. The Hon. Mr. anil
Mrs. Bishop leave for Europe by tho vessel
which takes this letter, and will pass through
your city. Please remember me to and

lork, who were bo kind to us during our visit.
Th Advertiser of last week had quite an in
teresting article on the manufacture of preser
ved moats, recommending the establishment of
factories in this group. This is one of the la
tent industries which will somo day bo taken
up, and, after a series of experiments, with per
haps the failures that accompany every new en
terprisc, will doubtless succeed. But it must
be borne in mind that it requires a large capi
talfrom one hundred to two hundred thou
sand dollars to carry it on successfully, ow
ing to tho distant markets, which are tho chief
consumers. In Australia, where capital is
abundant, interest low, and skilled workmen
arc always to be found, many failures have
occurred in thia line ot business, and tho busi
ness has become demoralized. Still it appears
to be growing, as shown by the consumption of
preserved meats in England, which for nine
years exhibits the following growth

The Measles In FIJI.
A statement is going the rounds of the
American newspapers to tho purjKirt that fifty
thousands of the natives of Fiji have died from
the measles, during the early months of this
year. We havo looked through our Fijian
files, to ascertain whether or not, this state
ment is exaggerated, but can find no estimate
of the number who have died, except for tho
district of Kandavu, where, out of a popula
tion of 7,000, there havo been 2,100 deaths,
mostly from tho epidemic. This is over ono
third. Tho population of the whole group is
estimated at 120,000, and if the deaths have
been in the samo ratio throughout tho group as
in Kandavu, the total must havo exceeded
forty thousands. The following picture of tho
destitution and misery in Fiji, as described by
a correspondent of tho Levuka Times, ia a
sad ono :
"Tho measles arc making great ravages
among the natives, and at tho present rate the
per ccntage of deaths will bo very heavy.
There is no doubt that if prompt and cnorgtic
measures had been taken at the first, by ap
pointing white men throughout each district
with proper remedies and nourishment to ad
minister to the poor fellows, a groat number
would have been saved. The whole proceed
ings from the introduction of the disease down
to the present, seem to me to havo been cold
blooded in the extreme, and it is not to be
wondered at, that it has left an idea with the
natives that it has been arranged to get them
out of the way, so as to make room for tho
now Governor and the large number of whites
that he will bring with him or follow in his
wake. To prove that many lives, aye I lc
licve one-half of them, might have been saved in
the way I have stated, I may mention that on
one plantation in tho bay where there arc
52 Fiji and foreign laborers, no deaths have
occurred, and this I attribute to the fact that
as soon as the disease appears on any of the
men, they are at once removed to a separate
house Bet aside for a hospital, where they are
attended to, and what is of more importance than
all else, proper nourishment given to them
when recovering. The consequence of this is
that in a short time they recover. Had these
men been left all huddled together, and the
measles allowed to spread amongst them, the
mortality would have been as heavy as among
the local natives. I assert, without fear of
contradiction, that one-half at least of the
deaths are caused by the exhaustion that fol
lows after the measles have left them."
Tbe Bunker Hill Celebration.
Boston took right hold of the Bunker Hill
centennial. The telegraph reports that the
entire body of State militia, Major-General B.
F. Butler commanding, was reviewed by Gov
ernor Gaston. The State troops were well re
ceived, but the highest enthusiasm, it is said,
was reserved for the visiting soldierly, espe
cially the Philadelphia Regiment, the New
York Seventh, the Maryland Fifth, and tbe
Charleston Light Infantry. ,Tho review
lasted over an hour, and it is estimated that
20,000 troops were in line. Among the distin
guished guests were members of the Diploma
tic Corps, Vice President Wilson, Generals
Sherman, Burnside and Hawloy, Chief Justice
of the Supreme Court, and Governors and
Congressmen from several States. When the
march for Charles town began, the streets were
filled with a vast mass of people. Such a
sight was never before witnessed in the city.
Crossing the ld bridge into Charlestown, the
procession passed under a triumphal arch
bearing the honored names of Prescott, Knowl
ton, Stark and Pomeroy, the heroes of Bunker
Hill. Tho exercises at the nonumcnt wore
begun at a very late hour, and were curtailed
to about one-sixth of the original programme.
General Chas. Dcvens was introduced as the
orator of tho day. His oration was confined
to a graphic description of the battle, and an
eloquent appeal for the burial of all animosi
ties engendered during the late war. S. J.
On Sunday evening there was a very largo
audience assembled at Kaumakapili Church to
listen to an address from His Majesty, on
tho subject of temperance reform. The room
was uncomfortably crowded, while many were
nnable to even get inside. The choir of tho
Church sang during the evening several hymns
appropriate to the occasion, and the tunes
being familiar, the singing was joined in by
the andiencc. His Majesty said in substance :
" In response to the invitation of your Com
mittee, and from an earnest desire for your
welfare, I wish to speak to you this evening
upon the evils of intemperance, knowing that
the habit of using intoxication drinks is in
creasing among you, and is one of the great
causes of the decrease of the people. The
principal compound of which liquor is com
posed is alcohol, and alcohol by tho most emi
nent scientific authorities, is placed high in
the list of vegetable poison. He who takes to
intoxicating drink siuTcrs from it tho same as
from any other poison. But the liquor drank
hore is made of a mixture which is worse even
than alcohol. To show more clearly the ef
fects and the diseases which the use of intoxi
cating drinks brings, let mo call your atten
tion to tho names of a fow who have died
lately from illness produced by it. I speak of
them because they were cases that came under
my immediate observation. They were prom
inent public men, aid you are' all familiar with
their lives : Kahai, Kahanawai, Hoapili Ka
auwai, Lilikalani, and many others. They all
suffered from the effects of intemperance. It
took years before Jley were aware of their
maladies ; but it canio upon them sure and un
erring. Men do not at first feel any of its evil
consequences, and aro gradually allured until
they become hclplra victims unable vo control
thomselves, and slaves to all the passions en
gendered by the downward course of tho
drunkard, until they sink into a drunkard's
" There aro variois opinions as to the manner
in which we should meet this evil. Some ad
vocato total abstisuncc, others differ ; but
whatever course you may pursue, knowing
its effects, let me urge you to adhere to it
faithfully. Nothirg destroys tho effect of our
efforts for reform in this matter more than try
ing to do too much Lot us proceed cautiously,
but with firmness in all that wo undortako for
this cause. I am an advocate of the cause of
temperance, and kopo by precept and example
to draw you fron tho evils of intemperance
Kauikcanuli, bolovod by his people, uttered
theso sentiments : " None but good men
shall govern my people." I will follow him
in this resolve, and would urge you, by all tho
recollections of what he did for you and tho
alohti you bore him, to reform. Now ia tho
At the cloao of tho King's remarks, Mr. Johu
E. Bush was called on, and Baid that he spoko
in response to an invitation from tho Commit
tee of arrangements, and as an advocate of tho
good cause of temperance, in which His Ma
jesty had volunteered to take the lead. Ho
wished to support tho King in his efforts to
Btay intompcrauoe, and to check tho decrcaao
of tho people. His Majesty's presenco here,
his advocacy of reform, and his example were
evidences that ho was in earnest. He has re
ferred you to many who havo fallen as victims of
intemperance. He has Bhown the poisonous
nature of alcohol and its villainous compounds,
and has appealed to you to put thom away.
He (the speaker) proposed also to recall in
stances familiar to many, who had tiecn vic
tims of intemperance, that his hearers might
take warning and shun tho inevitable effects of
intemperance. After instancing several noble
characters and their untimely end, ho said:
' All theso statemerts are facts, familiar to
roost of you. It is no fancy sketch, but tho
history of prominent men whose god-like in
tellects were destroyed by tho uso of intoxica
ting drinks. Hore in this assembly this even
ing aro witnesses who can verify all that I havo
said. Thus, my friends, if from tho proofs
which I have brought before you, it is mado
clear to your minds that intemperance is an
ovil and alcohol an enemy to mankind, why do
you, young and old, persist in in its use ? Is it
not time that we should look upon it with
loathsome disgust, and horror ? The sanctity of
our homes is destroyed through its agency.
Tho very existence of this peoplo as a nation is
endangered. Havo we sunk so low that wo
cannot break from the fetters which this al
luring evil has bourd ub ? I say, for tho
sake of all that we hold dear, our homos, our
families, all that makes a man what his Crea
tor designed him ta be, let us now and forever
abstain from tho use of intoxicating drinks.
Bev. Mr. Kuaea closed the addresses, with a
few pertinent remarks, in which ho appealed
to tho audience to remember the counsel which
they had this ovoning heard. Thoy were the
words of truth and soberness, and ought not
to bo forgotten. The meeting was efficiently
presided over by S. B, Dole, Esq., but the au
dience, during the latter part of the services
became entirely too demonstrative. It may be
very proper to stamp and cheer a speaker on
some occasions, but on the Lord's day, and in
his sanctuary too, it does appear altogether in
decorous. Public opinion alone can correct
this lack of good breeding.
It is altogether likely that within the next
two yoare tho North Pole will bo found, or a
latitude far higher than the 82 deg. 1 1 min. of
Hall, or tho 82 deg. 3 min. of Payer and Wey
precht, be attained. Two European nations
are, it is weU known, fitting out Arctic expe
ditions. The Germans will send two ships up
the eastern coast of Greenland one to explore
the coast and act as a reserve vessel, the other
to press as far north as the ice will allow her,
when a sled expedition with dogs or reindeer
will endeavor to make its way to the Pole.
The English expedition will consist of two
ships under Capt. Nares, B. N., who recently
commanded the Challenger in her scientific
cruise. He was a mate under Mcdintock in
in the Besolute's Arctic voyage, and so has
experience. His work will be done under the
supervision of a special commission of the Ad
mirality, on which are McClintock and Sher
rard Osborne, both eminent Arctic explorers.
The English fleet will ascend the western
(American) coast of Greenland, and attempt
Smith's Sound, which the American explorers
have shown pretty conclusively to be the
easiest pathway to the Pole. One vessel will,
probably, be left at Murchison Inlet as a re
serve. The advices from the Arctic regions
all unite in predicting a favorable season.
Smith's Sound last year was free from ice, and
such a current was running down aa could only
bo produced by a long; reach of open water.
Dundee whalers give it as an opinion that at
least 88 degrees north can be reached with tho
ships by starting early. Exchange.
The South Paclflc Labor T raffle.
In tho House of Lords, tho Earl of Carnar
von, in moving the Becond reading of the bill
for the regulation of the labor traffic in the
Pacific, stated that the bill was for further
carrying out the legislation that had taken
place for the purpose of the regulation of what
was termed the labor trade in the Pacific Is
lands. Three years ago an Act was passed
which included only the regulation and in
spection of the ships which carried tho coolio
laborers. Since that time the Fiji Islands had
been added to tho British possessions, and a
number of ships engaged in the transport of
laborers which were not under tho protection
of the Act, and thoy had conseqnontly become
exposed to seizure and condemnation. This,
to a great extent, led to the practice of vessels
changing their flags. This bill would give the
protection they required, and at the samo timo
tend further to restrict the operations of ves
sels, which under another guise were really
engaged in tho slave trade. Tho bill therefore
extended the license of tho ships trading to
Fiji as well as the other islands of tho Pacific.
It might lie necessary from time to timo further
to amend and extend the Act. The labor trade,
if unchecked, was productive of a great evil,
but under proper regulations could bo carried
on with great advantage. Tho Earl of Kim
bcrlcy was glad to hear that tho legislation
which he proposed three years ago had been
productive of advantage, and had no objection
to tho present bill, which still further carried
out tl..- legislation he had initiated. He agreed
that the Bound policy to be pursued was not to
suppress, but to regulate this description of
traffic in Polynesia. Lord Stanley, of Alderlcy,
enquired whether there would be any objec
tion to extend the protection to vessels carry
ing laborers to the Sandwich Islands. The
Earl of Carnarvon said that there was no sche
dule in tho bill, but he wonld consider the
mattor between this time and the committee.

Honolulu. August 7th, 1875.
Mil. Editob: In tho years 1870 and 1871,
when I mado an appeal to charity, in tho Ha
waiian Kingdom, in favor of the French wid
ows and orphans, members of all nationalities
without one exception camo forward with
their liberal offerings. The amount which I at
that timo forwarded to my country peoplo hag
been so important, that I have been hesitating
to impose anew upon the generosity of the in
habitants of tho Hawaiian Islands, though well
aware am I of the terrible disasters actually
Btriking the south of France.
However, somo kind members of tho com
munity have spontaneously sent me their sub
scriptions, so that I feel constrained to ap
peal publicly to general benevolence. To this
effect lists of subscription in favor of the suf
ferers from floods in tho south of France, will
bo open in tho following places : Store of H. M.
Whitney, Pnblishcr Hawaiian Gazkttb; J. H.
Black, Publisher Commnrcud Advertiser;
Store of T. G. Thrum, Publisher IsLtmler ; Offico
Uishop & Co., Bankers ; Allen Herbert, Pro
prietor of Hawaiian Hotel. Besides monetary
subscriptions, I shall !o glad to receive any
Hawaiian products which donators might bo
willing to dopoait witb Messrs. Schaefer & Co.
These articles would bo sold by auction in
September next, from 5th to 10th, under Mr.
Charles Pernct's care, as well as any needle
work that ladies might desire to remit to
Trusting in your benovolent assistance and
