.i Kauikeaouli, Dec. lo, 1851, in accordance with 1
that choice, he was proclaimed King. His reign 1
thus extended a few days less than ninp years. 1
In .June, I?oG, he wa? married to Emma Kooke, Ej
who survives him. Tr ey had but one child, the :4
late Prince of Hawaii, whose death, a little more
than a year ago, robbed the nation of the fond tj
hopes that it had placed m him as their future N

It is not the fit time nor place here, while the 1
nation is still unrecovered from the first shock ri
of grief at the announcement of the death
their King, to make a review of his short reign, tl
or to -kiss a eulogium on him ; that should be I
reserred for the future. Hut we cannot omit tJ ;
speak here of one act of his 6hort and eventful
reign, which will place his name and that F
of his noble Queen Km ma in letters of gold on k
the pages of his country's history and this is,
the dsign and successful completion of theJC
benevolent institution, known as the Queen's -tj
Hospital. To the united efforts of the late Kin- H
and his Queen, it owes its urigin, and now stands H
there a monument of their sympathy and love
for their wasting people. Well do we remem- X
ber seeing him in 1859 going alone and unat- W
tended through our streets, from house to house, 1
and from store to store, with his memorandum j

In passing, it may not be cut of place to re-

the anniversary of the same event the independence
appropriate. One diy should be selected and kept, j

aken a sperm whale on the passige down frpm Hilo 8,
;o this port, and having some curiosity to witness the
iolus operandi of extracting oil from blubber, and j
whatever else was to be seen, we started for the f
wharf to find Capt. Ashley, from whom we expected
to obtain a letter of introduction to his first officer.
Upon findine the Captain, and statine our errand
he kindly offered to accompany us off; so getting into U

the length was the other way and broad smile3 of
sitisfiction gleamed forth. Proceeding to examine
the whale, we first inspected a huge mass of blubber
which was securely lashed to the rail, called in whale
men's parlance the junk, a part of the head from
which oil was fast oozing out. Casting our eyes below
we saw a pile of blubber cut into pieces about two
feet in length, and six or eight inches wide, called
horse pieces' ready for the mincing machine, from
which they were passed into a tub, wait'mg their
turn for the try pots. After boiling they were thrown
into a press from which they came well cleared of oil
and then served as fuel under the pots. We were
shown the spermaceti as it came from the case or
head, the material from which sperm candles are
made. The jaw was lying on deck, in which we
counted 42 teeth. The whale was large enough to
have made 70 or 80 barrels, but was poor, and 50
barrels is probably all that it will yield. This oil
