mourning, as well as texts for preachers, and items
for the ultar, the cradle and the tomb. He says he
will not be surprised to see a daily paper started

all the rest of the island put together.
The Newspaper. Take the most thorough man
of the world of your acquaintance, says Lord
Iirotigham. the man most perfectly versed in what
goes on in all conditions and ranhs of life and 1
ask you. what would he be without his newspaper?
Uy what possible machinery could he learn, as he
sits at his breakfast, the last news from China, or
the last ballet nt Paris, the state of the funds at
San Francisco, the winner at Newmarket, the
Pantomime of the Olympic, and the encyclical of
AVithout my newspaper, life would narrow it-elf

Jri.Y Itii. The anniversary of American Inde
pendence occurs on Wednesday next. As yet noth
ing has been done to prepare for it, that we can hear
of. owing probably to the circumstance of the Prin
cess" death and funeral. Put now that the obse
quies are over, there can be no harm in preparing; for
the day in a becoming manner, not by any extrav
agant display or expenditure, but in a quiet socia
ble way. A national eultitc should be lired, and a
place selected for a picnic gathering lor such ladies
and children as may choose to unite in celebrating
the day. Waikiki drove or Punahou College
grounds can be had for the occasion.

V hell in the wrong, we It die to set it right-
tiox. Tito pupils of the Wai.i-
1 ti .t Female Seminary w ishing to attend the funeral
of the Princess Victoria, started on foot last Mon
thly morning front Waialua. accompanied with
their teachers, purposing to walk into town via
Koolau. Le.t ing Waialua early on the morning
named, (hoy reached Kahuku at noon, and slept at
Hauul.i that night, at Kahana Tuesday night, at
Wilder's Wednesday night, and at Mr. Parker's
Thursday night, arriving iu town yesterday. It
was a novel si.ht to see so many juveniles engaged
iu a pedestrian journey of seventy miles, but the
excursion is calculated to do them more good than
twice that distance in the saddle.
Mo!:e Ho'. se Hi KxiNt;. There- would seom to lie
s uue oilicial screws loose in the administration of
justice on M.dokai. Some months ago Mr. liogers'
hoii.-e was burned down over his head, and the cul
prit, though well known, allowed to escape punish
ment. Kecently the house of a native in the same
place w as burnt, and an attempt made to burn the
dwelling now occupied by Mr. lingers. A petition
has been sent in to Government praying for tlie re
moval of the local judge, who. it is said, w inks at
the deeds of these midnight assassins, but as yet no
change has taken place. "When persons resort to
house-burning as a means of personal revenge,
hanging is too mild a punishment.
P.Kt'Oiniiri Loss ok Schooner. P.y the schooner
Prii'Ct. which arrived on Wednesday night from
llanah i. w e have a verbal report that the schooner
Chiirird. belonging to Messrs. Janion, Green i Co.,
had gone ashme at Wahiawa. about five miles west
of Koloa. We have no particulars, and trust that
Captain Lambert will be able to get his vessel oil"
without serious damage. The Moi Walnut is due
from Koloa. and ought to bring in a full account of
f-v Cbood-ETTE. We observe that this really pleasant
j "an l somewhat exciting game is quite popular
j among young folks as well as older persons, and
on any pleasant afternoon, parties may be seen
playing it on the lawns in front of the charming
residences that line Nuuanu valley. It is one of
the best out-door sports that have ever been intro
duced, and we recommend it to all.
A discontented down-east editor exclaims
in one of his late isucs ; Go to Japan. You can
buy a first class house there for thirty dollars, and
live comfortable in it for two cents a day. Ser

ViIju.im; l.v S o.am. We have several times dur
ir.g past years advocated whaling by steam, which
is at length ;;!...: i t t be put to a practical test,
both fiom K-iglanu and the United States. A
gu-amer tilled out i:i Nin Fianciseo or Honolulu,
at a cc-t f to. (too. thence proceeding to Paget
Sound f.r coals, thence to the Ko.llack Sea and the
Arctic Ocean, would rd.md a fair chance of obtain,
ir.g more than an ordinary catch. Now some of
our successful whalers buitig in cargoes worth from
SoC.oou to S H"j.o-.!i) taken in one season. We have
great eonCdence in this mode of carrying on the
business, and bilieve that in a few years, after ft
full trial is given, it will supercede the present use
of sailing vessels. The New Hedfold Jlu'Cury has
the following :

April r.ext, iv nun anded res;;cl:vely by Captains W. H. K ys,
5. W. Hoys, and A. B. Keys. The steamers sail from Er;land
under the Ia iiiIt tlas.-, an 1 a few of the crew have beeu slop
ped at this port. The whale are killed by Roys patent rocket
harp'Hn. In five d.iys' sail the steamers are upon whaling
(.'round, where the sn'ohur bottoms are found in srreat abun
dame. This mode of "whaling has been tri'Ml by these parties
two seasons with perfect success. The crews are made up prin
cipally of Ianes.
The New London I-:inocrat, of May oth. de
scribes the trial trip of a steam whaler, fitted out
by Messrs. Williams A Haven, of that city :
TiualTkip or the Piosekr. Recently the bark Fionrrr
ma.'.e a trial trip, fhe cast i ff from the dock about ball-p.iat
5 ..Vbck, and steamed down the harbor in K illant style. There
were quite a number of invited gue.-ts on board, and they were
all highly pleased w th the new stermer. W hen she pot un.ler
way she bad but a small quantity of steniu, but she moved off
finely, and uiindid htr helm readily. She returned from her
trip shortly after 7 o'clock anil anchored in the barlnir. It
was the opinion f all onboard that the Tioneer was a de
cMed success. This vei l was nrisrina'.'y built f r a Uovern
ment transp at at the Cbailestown Navy Yard, ami every ti:n
tur in her is live tab. lurin the past winter she has been
slr.i-2tliete.-l preparatory t bavini her maebtmary placed in
b. r. II- r machinery i d thery best description, and al
thoucb the l'i-. rit i r ill, owini; to her pocaliar build, not be a
very fast st-.nner, still, it is th uiht from the ex(Hritnenlal trip
that she will when iu ood trim make from five to six miles ter
hour. e concratutute Messrs. Wiili.ims & Haven on the sue
cess of tbe new Vessel and hope she i.uj reap tor them and all
concerned a 1 ir;e reward for the enterprise manifested in tittiiiK
ut th first American si-am whaler. We barn that the total
estimated cot of the v sm ! nnd outfit, including coal and ma
chinery, will be about J.J-J.DuO. and that if moderately success-'
lin in taking bales she may lie exiiectol to return iu Novvuiber
or Lieceiiilar next. e wi.-h her abundant success.

tha permanent residence of this gentleman iu California will be
very valuable to us. ,

Extpaoppisaby Birds. We find in a foreitru
j I'irnal a statement of Dr. Livingstone's discoveries
in natural history, made up from the pages of his
latest, work on Africa. One of the most curiout nov
elties is that of an extraordinary bird, called the
Honey Guide." Whenever this bird catches sight
of a man it endeavors to attract his attention by
flyinif from tree to tree, looking back each time it
alights to see if it I e followed, its invariable object
being, for some unknown reason, to lure him to a
hive of tees and a store cf honey. Another peculiar
bird is the Buffilo Watcher. As they lie in tho tall
grass, these animals might be approached quite un
perctivei, were it not that this bird, which is seated
on the animal, by flapping its wings and screaming,
gives the signal of alarm.

The Prince of Wales, while out on a hunt with

of his companions, who must certainly have expe
rienced quite a shock when they beheld their future
sovereign fitting on the bare ground, engaged in tho
ridiculous occupation of extracting dirt from his

Cunning of Rats. It is nstonishing bow cun
ningly aud quickly rats will run along the hawser
of a Bhip attached to another ehip, in order to search
for more food than they could procure iu the nhip
they have just left. This is generally done in the
night, but the migration has been witnessed in the
daytime. When rats have devoured all the food in
a burn, they will migrate in considerable numbers to
another. A clergyman once witnessed one of thee
migrations, and saw an old blind rat holding a short
bit of stick in his mouth, and another rat holding
the other end; in this way the blind rat was con
ducted safely along. The contrivances of rats to
procure food are sometimes extraordinary. They
nave been known to insert their tails into an oil
flask, and then lick off the adhering oil. till the flank
was emptied, or at least till their tails would reach
the oil no longer. It has also been ascertained that
they have made deposits of eggs in some concealed
place, as a future stock of food. They were con
veyed without breaking them, although it is difficult
to guess iu what way.
