The Flection To-day. The polls will be open at
the Court House to-day, from 8 a. m. till 5 p. m..
for the election by the qualified voters of a Repre-
sentative for this District, in the place of Mr. Judd,
who has been appointed Attorney General. As there
is no probability and only a remote possibility thai
the member to be elected will have an opportunity
to sit before the election for 1874, there is but little
interest manifested among the people, so far as we
can learn. We hear, however, of several candidates
reported as intending to run, among whom are, the
Rev. J. P. Green, and Messrs. Keawehunabala, Ka
kini and Robert Charlton.
Ctttino Aitrat at Halawa. Mr.
District Justice of Halawa, employs ten Chinaman !
,. , . ... , . i
on his sugar plantation, who sleep in a house by j
themselves. During last Monday night, one of the t
Chinamen named Alo, who was asleep with the rest.
was awakened by receiving a severe cut on the back
of his neck, evidently from a knife, which narrowly
missed tbe jugular vein. On all bands being aroused,
Onee, one of the hands, was mi.siug, aud has not
been found up to the present time. He and the
woundel man had a quarrel some time ago, in which
there was a general "plug muss," and all the cir-
cumstances point to him as the assailant. Mr.
i Williams at once sent a message to Marshal Parke,
I ana .nr. uayton ana ur. irosseau roue to tne place .
! and dressed the man's wound, which is not tikelv to
! prove dangerous. The necessary search ii being
j made in the mountain for Onee, who evidently
; believes that he his killed his man.
TdE Prison. We ruAde a visit t.i the "Oahu ;
t Jail " one day this week, and under the guidance 1
j of Mr. D. K. Fyfe. the Superintendent, made tbe
1 tour of :hc entire building. We were particularly
( struck with the thorough cleanliness and neatness '
J exhibited everywhere. The halls, corridors and '
j cells were in excellent order, and tbef x prisoners ;
almost all th- inmates be'ng out at work :
ed well fed an I clothed. In the yard of the I
j Jail is a very pretty fountain and garden, and some
I fine shade trees, which surround th- Hospital, a
detached building. Tbe arrangement of the cells j
is such as io secure abundant ventillation ; but we ;
would suggest as the only improvement that could i
I be introduced, that the doors be provided wi;h a :
j small trap, through which food could be passed
' an4 the interior of the cell be examined at any :
j hour. Poi and Gsh are the staple articles of food J
impnTiPd in abundance tnall but foreigners. tvhr
have beef and bread, with tea. In the condemned
cells we saw two persous who have been convicted
of murder. The keeper informed us that the native
who murdered a man and woman at Maai last
M.trch. and who is under sentence of death, is ap- ' assault and battery on hobert Charlton. On hear
parently stolidly indifferent to bis fate. The view ' ng the evidence, the tables were turned and Charl

Highway Robbvrt. We have to record another
instuuee of tLe brutalitj and lawlessness of our
j native military. Last Monday evening, about 10 ' ,he troops presented arms, and the crowds of specta
j o'clock, as Mr. Gostave Loser, a respectable Germaa j on tLe lawn and in the adjacent streets gaTe
wLo works in tLe machinie shop of Mr. J. Viil, j bearty cheers for " the people's choice," to
' was quietly wending his way homeward up Xuuanu i which te P"ided by gracefuUy bowing with un
j Avenue, when near the first bridge he was violently covered head. At the porch. Uis Majesty was
! assaulted by four native soldiers, who after beatinn ' reoei! J Cabinet Ministers, aad passed into
; untU he w iD9nsible) tbed his person of
!... t.t.i .i.m -j.t ,.:.. m .
i what money he had SH.10 and then left him, for
dea-I. so far as they knew, or cared. After recover-
ing his senses, Mr. laser went to the Barracks with
another person, and although he could not identify
the parties who had assaulted him, one soldier was
found with bloody stains on his clothing, and placed
under arrest on suspicion. Subsequently, as we are
informed, this man implicated several others as parties
to the outrage, uud they are to be tried by a Court
Martial. Whatever may te the result of such a
- 1 . ' . , , .
' Court, it cannot prove satisfactory to the publ c
opinion, which imperatively demands that the undis-
ciplined, lawless set who disgrace the name of soldiers,
shall be taught by severe example that they are
amenable to the laws of the land.
We republish for the information of our read-
i ers the following correspondence between the U.
S. Minister Resident at these Islands and the

in these waters.

It is presumed that on reaching San Francisco
His Majesty will proceed eastward by the Central

make suitable preparations for the objects indicated

from San Francisco lor Honolulu, when the sad in
telligence of the demise of His late Majesty was
received. Consequently, the kindly courtesy and
respect which the United States Government iu
tended to exhibit in tbe manner named toward your

Unfortunate, if not Intentional.
In the Gazette Extra of the Cth inst., giving an
account of the proceedings on the day whea His
Majesty publicly took the oath of office in Kawala
Lao Church, all mention was omitted of the fact that
the Rev. II. II. Parker, pastor of the church, opened
the proceedings with prayer. On attention being di
rected to the omission, it was corrected in the regular
issue of the 1 5th. Again, in the number of tho
Gazette for the 22d, in relating tbe proceedings at
the prorogation of the Legislature, the statement is
made that prayer was offered by the Rev. D. Pali.
When the well-known fact is remembered that the
Rev. II. II. Parker (not Mr. Pali) was the officiating
clergyman in this instance also, the numerous friends
of Mr. Parker would seem to have some real excuse
for the belief to which they now incline, that the first
omission and the after misstatement were both inten
tional. The following communication speaks for
Who is Responsible? Mr. Editor Vie are in
a transition state. Statements and omissions which
cause surprise appear in the paper of this city which
speaks by authority, and to which a few look for
reliable information. As outsiders we would be very
sorry to place responsibility where it does not belong.
In the last issue of the Hawaiian Gazette the
reporter of that reliable journal in giving an account
of the proceedings at the Court House when His
Majesty prorogued the Legislative Assembly, Bays
"After prayer by Rev. D. Pali, His Majesty ad
dressed the Assembly." Was that so? Did not
another person officiate at the request of His Majesty
on that occasion ? If so, why was the name of the
reverend gentleman who officiated on tbe occasion
and also at the Kawatahao Church on the 9th inst..
when His Majesty took the oath of office, tuppretted 7
As the omission has been repeated after the attention
of the responsible man of the Gazette had been
called to the former error, some are constrained to
think it must have been intentional in both cases. If
so, permit me to ask why that paper should by
design or otherwise suppress tbe name of one who is
held in high esteem not only by tbe Aborigines of
tbe nation, but also by our foreign community and
His Majesty himself, the beloved pastor of the
largest Evangelical Church in this city, the Rev. II.
II. Pabker. Is there a reason for this suppression T
This must be the inference until we have more light
on the subject. F.
The Hawaiian Coat-of-Arms.
As a matter of interest, we clip the following
description of the Hawaiian Coat-of-Arms, from
! an old number of the Polynesian :
" Quarterly, first aud fourth stripes of the na
tional banner, second or third or ball argent on
j a staff sable. In escutcheon verf, triangular ban
E. ner argent, leaning on a cross saltier.
' " The white balls with which the second and (
third quarter are charged, was an ancient em
blem of the country, called Puloulou, and they
were placed on the right and left of the King's
house to indicate protection, or a place of refuge
to which a person might flee from danger and be
The triangular flag at the y"ej5c-point was an
ancient flag of Hawaiian chiefs, which was
raised at eea above the Bail of their canoes, and
the Pail at that time being of a peculiar construc
tion, it presented a very beautiful appearance.
It was also placed in a leaning position across
two spears in front of the King e house to indi- j
cate both taba aud protection. The name of the ''
, , . . . ... i
flag was Pueloa, and that ot the cross on which
it lies Alia. Both the balls and the flag had on

appropriateness to a coat-of-arms results from 1
the above characteristics.
" The external ornaments of the escutcheon con- j
6ists of a crest, which is a crown and two pup- I
porters men clad in the ancient feather cloak i
and helmet of these Islands, the oue bearing a i
kahili and the other a spear, as in the processions
of former times. The crown is ornamented with ,
the taro leaf. The design was original by Haa
lilio, who went with Mr. Richards to negotiate
tlie treaty between the United States and these

naturally alludes to the righteousness of the
British Government in returning the Islands to

by righteousness that national existence is pre
