142 The Polykesiam, Jasuart 13, 1855.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 1855.
Faneral of His Late Majesty, Kamehame-
The inclement weather of last week occasioned
the postponement of the obsequies of His late Ma
jesty till Wednesday last, the 10th inst. , when they
took place with all the solemnity, and every mark
of respect and affection which could be shown by
an affectionate people for a beloved Sovereign.
In anticipation of that event, preparations had
been made during the preceding week, and at 5
o'clock on the morning of the 10th, all the streets
through whichf the procession was to pass, and more
than a mile and a half in extent, were thickly cov
ered with grass and rushes, over their entire width,
which rendered them, notwithstanding the recent
heavy rains, very comfortable to pass over.
Long before 10 o'clock, the people began to as
semble in tho vicinity of the palace, and precisely
at that hour the different orders, military compa
nies and marines from the men-cf-war, were on the
ground, and took their assigned positions.
At 11 o'clock the religious exercises took place
ia the Palace, conducted by the Rer. R. Armstrong,
Ilis Majesty's Minister of Public Instruction.
After these were concluded, the coffin was placed
upon th car, vhich was heavily draped in black,
and having a larjre black kahili at each corner. A
canopy, surmounted by a gilt crown, was elevated
over the coffin, which was partially enveloped by
rich feather cloaks of rare workmanship, and sur
r sanded by kahilis and other insignia of royalty in
the Hawaiian kingdom.
At 10 minutes of 12, A. M., the procession
moved from the Palace under the direction of the
Grand Marshal, Ilia Excellency, M. Kekuanaoa,
Governor of Oaha.
Through the energetic and efficient management
of Mr. Parke, Marshal of the Hawaiian Kingdom,
the divisions of the procession assumed their re
spective positions with little or no delay and pro
ceeded through the carpeted streets, whose sides
were lined by a dense throng of spectators while
the many eligible positions on the line of march
were occupied by the families of foreign residents,
assembled to witness the most imposing spectacle,
which ever transpired on the Hawaiian Islands.
The Hawaiian Cavalry, uniformed in blue and
trimmed with red, with chargers decked in black,
formed an appropriate escort to the sable pageant
They were followed by a body of Physicians and
Clergymen, both native and foreign, and immedi
atelv after were the members of the Hawaiian
Chapter of Free Masons, in full regalia; while the
Lodge of Odd Fellows, arrayed in the appropriate
badges of the order, were next in the procession,
toth together presenting one of its most peculiar
and attractive features.
Tim whnUrm f f T?nv.i1 SpWI. followed hv
the President and Students of Oahu College, the
charity school, followed by the native schools were
next in order, all dressed in black.
The Artillery were dressed in blue uniform,
trimmed with red ; their caps also bound with red.
Their ordnance was most becominelv drarjed. The
cannon, enshrouded with black, seemed to have
Towed to speak no more. The carriages even to
the wheels were in mpurning, and every piece was
decorated with four black wands surmounted with
black ostrich feathers. They did credit in appear-
ance and discipline to themselves and officers.
The Band of Native Hawaiians, consisting of 15
pieces, with their drums muffled, preceded the first
division of Hawaiian Infantrv: then followed the
Pm-ciTor. rmnncrinM uprvnnts. and thf PhvsifMAn
. j , J j
of the late King ; after whom and before the fu
neral car was led the black charger of His late
Majesty, whose vacant saddle and empty trappings
poke feelingly of their absent Lord and master.
The car was drawn by a large company of Ha-
wuiiana, who were preceded by two large yellow
kahilis, and the late King's Standard draped in
black. On each side, at the foot, and at the head
f the car. were carried two larire irreen kahilis. 1
while on either side were carried sixteen smaller

and red, contrasted pleasantly with the French
Marines of the Eurydice in theirs of black with the
broad collar trimmed with white, and with the
American Marines of the St. Marys in their neat
uniform of white and blue, trimmed with red.
The Fire Companies were followed by a dense
throng of Hawaiians eight and ten deep; all dress
ed in the deepest black; all the young the old
the strong the weak the infant of days and the
decrepit of years, paying their last tribute of affec
tion to the King, who bound the past to the pres
ent, and was as it were a part of former genera
A Third Division of Hawaiian Infantry brought
up the rear and closed the procession."
The procession moved from the Palace, down
King's St., then up Nuuanu St. to Beritania St.
At this point there had assembled a dense throng
of people who, when they perceived the riderless
horse of His Late Majesty preceding the Car that
held his remains, could no longer contain them
selves, but burst forth in a low suppressed wail.
The procession proceeded with no other incident up
Beritania to Punch Bowl St., thence to King St.
and the Sepulcher. Again did the natives yield to
ancient custom, and a long low wail arose from the
thousands congregated here. Except these, nor in
deed in these traces of former customs, was there
anything during the day, inconsistent with the most
perfect order and decorum.
The procession entering the cemetery the Funer
al Car was drawn through the first division of Ha
waiian Infantry and Household Troops, to the door
of the Sepnlcher, followed by the High Chiefs the
Queen and her Suite, the King and his Suite. The
Infantry then formed a hollow square about the
Sf pulcher, and the remainder of the processiou pass
ed on without, the Hawaiian Guard and Foreign
Marines being stationed a short space to the north
and east of the Tomb.
The door of the Sepulcher being opened, His Ex
cellency, the Rev. R. Armstrong, His Majesty's
Minister of Public Instruction offered a short and
appropriate prayer, immediately after this the Roy
al Mourners left the Cemetery.
The Troops then fired three volleys, and the
High Chiefs removed the coffin of the King from the
Car and placed it in tho center or the Tomb. This
is of stone, nicely carpeted and contains 9 coffins of
adult members, and threo of the youthful members
of the Royal line; they are ranged on koa frames
at the Northern side of the Sepulcher, the entrance
being; on the South. On the Eastern side there are
5 coffins, on the Western 4, while at the Northern
extremity of the narrow passage are the coffins of

destiny for which he was created, that of reducing the
islands from a state of anarchy and cenrtant warfare to
one of peace and unity under the rule of one King.
With the accession of Kamehameha II to the throne the
tabus were broken, the wild orgies of heathenism abol
ished, the idols thrown down, and in their place wis set
up the worship of the one only living and true God.
His was the era of the introdu jtion of Christianity an 1

a nation's advance. This is beyond doubt a critical pc-

to despair. We have seen the tomb close over our So-
vereign, but it does not buryour hopes. If we are uni-
