THE POLYNESIAN, AUGUST 8, 185f.
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.
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.
