The Board of Directors rospcctfully
Bub'thnylho following report:
tfho Board^ congratalntes the Stock
holders upon the improved condition of
the Association. A comparison of the
.?lfotcihJnfc of ?he Treasurer, this year
with last year's statement, shows th'nt
the finances are in better condition than
at the last meeting. Tho Annual Fair
[of 1874,'. noi.Wit&3t.?i?ding to w& lieid
during tho pendency of tho general

The grounds of the Association aro in

aud arrangements hovo been entere d
into for the cultivation of such parts of
the ground as can be routed'for that
purpose, and the various special re
Eourccs for income have becu utilized,
1 so as to make the property pay as much
In addition to the profits of the last
Annual Fair, we had on hand, at its
close, premiums enough for a Floral
Fair lhiir^#prtug, but they wunl'aufur
tanutely destroyed in the store lately
occupied by the Treasurer, in the
conflagration of January 5th 1875.
The Board of Director/, consider
that ample opportunity has been
furnished to nil who desired to take
stock in the Association to do so; and
they recommend, that the stockholders,
by resolution, express their opinion on
this matter, and if the wish of the stook
holders is in accordance with the views
of tho Directors, the Board which will
bo this day elected, cuu then take the
proper constitutional stops to fix the
stock at the numtie&of shares thought
proper by the Stockholders. All of
Wbjcly. is respe?&ulr/s'ubniitted.

Law-Making in Hawaii.
In Hawaii the Legislature, composed
of ? a llouso of Nobles aud a House of
Representative:!, makes the laws, but if
their Acts are not approve 1 by the
King, they havo no effect. The nobles
nro made by the King, and tho roprrscu
tatives are elected by the people. In
order to he a voter, one must have a
oertain income and bo of good standing
in tho community; aud where women
possess these requirements, they have
the privilege of votiug. Out of the
'eleven representatives, five are Women.
Any man who drinks or swears cannot
sit on a jury. There arc no beggr.rs.
? every man aud woman who is able being
compelled to work, aud tho Govern
mcut gives employment to those who
have none. Tho two predominating
religions arc the Catholic and Congrcga
tional. It is customary for young wo
men to "pop the question" to young
men. Crimes iuvolving social virtue
and purity are punished by heavy dues,
and Sabbath breaking and swearing by
small fines. If a woman's husband
absents himself fro n her fourycirs she
can marry again, aud the code of laws
has this provision : uIf two married per
sons do not live happily together, but
quarrel, and become famous for the
same, tiiey shall be confined in irons
each night separately in the s ante cell'
until they cease quarreling."

us the following sketch. A lawyer in
Milwaukee was defending a haudso ue
young woman accu.-cd of stealing fro u a
large unoccupied buildii. g in the night

'?Gentlemen of the jury, I am done. I
When I gaze with enraptured eyes on
the matchless beauty of this peorlcsi
virgin, on whoso resplendent charms
suspicion never dared to breathe; when
I behold her radiant in the glorious
bloom of lustrous lovliness which
niigclic sweetness might, envy but could
uot eclipse; before which the star on
the brow of the night grows pale, ami
the diamonds of Brazil uro dim;and
then reflect upon ihe ut ter madness rlit]
folly of supposing that so much beauty
would expose itself to the terrors of an
empty building in the cold, damp deal
of the night, when innocence like hers
is hiding itself among the snowy pillows
of repose; gentlemen of the jury, my
feelings are too overpowering for ex
prossiou, and I throw her into your
arms for protection against this foul
charge, which the outrageous malice of
a disappointed scoundrel has invented
to blast the fair name of this lovely
maiden, whose smiles shall be the re
ward of the verdict which I know you
will give." She was acquitted
