THE POLYNESIAN, AUGUST 8, 185f.
108 Accident Whilst the salute was being fired on Punchbowl Hi! ia commemoration of the 31st of J uly, an accident hap pened to one of the gunners who was ramming home, by which he was very seriously injured, his collar-bone havinff been broken, and one arm injured. The life the man was at first thought to be in jeopardy, but we learn that ho is now considered in a fair way towards recovery. Blame having been attached to the man who was serving the vent, a court martial was called, and evidence taken with regard to all the circumstances that led to the unfortunate affair. The result of the mvesti nation was the acquittal of the party tried, wbo appears to have been a careful and efficient man, the act of carelessness that produced the accident beiag clearly traced to the unfortunate sufferer himself. At the same time we cannot help thinking that if the large and old guns that are at present used for a saluting battery were replaced by more handy and newer ones, accidents of this character might bt less frequent, several having oocured during the last tea or twelve months, each; one of whioh, to say nothing of the party hurt, has been a matter of regret to those who heard of the disaster whilst enjoying themselves on some public occasion. i T The Funeral of Konia. The obsequies of the late chiefess- Konia were per formed on Tuesday, and notwithstanding the sickness which has been so general prevented numbers of persons from attending, the aggregate of those collected to show their respect oa the oocasion was very large, whilst the crowd that thronged both sides of the streets, as the procession moved along, was so great as to require a strong force to preserve the line of march from the late residence of the deceased lady to the Royal cemetery, in which the coffin was placed. The religious services were performed by the Eev. Mr. Clark, and the ceremony was conducted throughout with & decorum and feeling whioh was remarked by all present. GENERAL ADVERTISEMENTS. HIDES.
