NOTES OF THE WEEK.
" f 1 1 ' ;
Pixaiiou College. The term of this institution
commences on Monday next, April Cth.
APraise Sekvicb is announced for. Fort Street
Church to-morrow evening."TIt will be mostly a ser
vice of song by choir and congregation, and the pub
lic are invited to participate in it.
' Rainfall for March." Onr attentive correspon
dent A. L. S., informs us that the rainfall for th6
month of March at the Rev. Dr. Smith's residence,
Kattanu Valley, wa 4.77 Inches
Postponed. The ball of " Mechanic " Engine
Co. No. 2, has again been postponed for several
causes, which were unavoidable. Due notice will be
given as to when it will take place.
Masonic. The regular monthly meeting of Ha
waiian Lodge, No. 21, F. & A. M will be held at
their rooms in Makee's block, on Monday evening
next, April Cth, at 7 o'olook. .. ' . . i
The Kearsarge. In a late number of the Vallejo
Independent .we read tha statement "tbat "Admiral
rennock has applied to the Navy Department to have
the Kearsarge attached to the Pacific fleet instead of
sending her to China."
Bark " Cambridge." This vessel formerly a
regular packet between Honolulu and Portland, wits
off Lahaina last Wednesday, and procured supplies.
She .was 81 days from Newcastle, N. S. W., with
coals, bound to San Francisco, and continued on her
voyage the same day. She reported a stormy pas
sage, having split sails, etc.
Holy Week otherwise known as Passion
v.-u. bvginninr -wi t n rwm ftinday, ends to
morrow with Easter, during which period the
Christian Church ! commemorates the events imme
diately preceding and following 'our Saviour's
passion. The usual services have been held in the
Roman Catholic and the Anglican Churches, and
yesterday, being (Jood Friday, many stores and
placea of business in town were closed. . .
The Royal Progress. A spirited account of His
Majesty's reception at Lahaina will be found in an
other column, for which, (besides our own corre
spondent who accompanies the Royal party) we are
indebted to the able pen of a Maui gentleman. The
steamer undoubtedly arrived at Hilo on Wednesday,
and we expect to hear that the good people of the
Bay have been no whit behind those of the second
city of the Kingdom in their demonstrations of loy
alty for why? is not Captain Thomas Spencer
The A. & A. S. S. Tartar arrived this morn
ing at 7 o'clock.'
The steamship Afacgregor struck on a reef at
Kandavu harbor, on the passage to Sydney, Eeb.
2Cth. She discharged freight in a damaged condi
tion into the Tartar and was got off. She had &
hole in her bow 7 or 8 feet long and 3 or 4 feet wide.
The Tartar took the freight and passengers of the
Macgregor to Sydney. A eurvey was being held on
the ship. ' ' '
The Tartar is 20 days from Sydney via Fiji.
She leaves at 5 p. m. to-day for San Francisco.
Scddex Death. Mr. William Hoapili Kaauwai, of
Wailuku, Maui, died very suddenly of heart disease,
in this city on Monday last. Mr. Kaauwai had been
designated as His Majesty's Chamberlain on Friday
last, and at the time of hi3 almost instaataneons
death was sitting in a chair, giving directions for the
packing of his trunk preparatory to accompanying
the Royal Party to Hawaii. He had been suffering
from a pulmonary complaint for some months, but
was apparently recovering ttrength and general
health when the messenger came. He was of a high
chief family of Maui, mth bis wife, recently de
ceased, he accompanied the Queen Dowager on ber
trip to Europe some nine years since.
H. B. M.'s Vice Coxsui I'nder the head of ffi.
cial notifications, it will be seen that Mr. George
Macfarlane (who has, we believe, the rank of Maj&r
on Gov. Dominis' staff ) has received the appoint
ment of acting British Vice Consul, during the ab
senfe of Theo. H. Davies, Esq., who leaves on the
next steamer for a visit to England. Mr. Macfar
Isne is a Britisher, by all the forms of English law,
and was born of British parents, although on Ha
waiian soil. We fail to see, however, in what way
that fact gives him an "Anglo-Hawaiian cross," as
stated by the Gazette. But the Gazette, if not
Irish, should generally be allowed to speak twice;
fur it has an unfortunate habit of looking cross
ejed ' at things which are naturally straight.
Fireman's Fund Insurance Company. We have
received from Bishop & Co., agents ia this city of the
above San Francisco Company, a copy of the annual
ttstement, which demonstrates a prosperous condi
tion. We copy : ; .
The year opened with the Fireman's Fond in the
midst of their Boston settlements, from which and
frcm other losses they carried over a liability (a3 ap
pears from their annual statement of December 31st,
1872) of 132,085 00, including $78,750 bills pay
able being 60-day drafts issued by the Vice Prcbi
dent, Mr. Dornin, who visited Boston to settle the

BELLS AND STEA V-WH1STLE3. '
As the steamer approached nearer, the bells of
the different churches were set a-ringing and the
steam whistles at the two sugar mills blew 21
blasts each tus a Royal salute. Meanwhile the
Court House was illuminated and a line of burn
ing torches, held by willing nnd cnger hand, Ar
ranged In close order along the beach from near
the residence of 11 is Ex. P. Nahaolclua . to the
point beyond tho light-house.
FROCE5SIOS OF BOATS
Next came a procession of boats, nearly thirty
in number, each one illuminated by from four t.
ten torches, moving in single file out of the bar
bor to meet the steamer. As soon as the lattt
had. Anchored tho boat8 formed a circle around
the eliip and, after a couple of Hawaiian airs
had been sung; by chosen singers, throe hearty I
cbeera were given lor the King; alter wlucli the

RECEPTION" ON" HOARD.
Arrived oa deck, the King received them with
hit) usual affability and was evidently well pleased
at his reception by Lahaina. Bergcr'n band
played several airs, and the singing by the hand,
varied with the inging from the boats sounded
beautifully through the still night air over the
HUE VIEW LANDWARD,
From the steamer's deck, was certainly the finest
pyrotechnic display that ever was seen in this
country, and I think seldom equalled in'othere.
Imagine a base-line of blazing bonfires at regular
intervals from Shaw's Point to Olowalu Point, a
distance of nearly eight miles, lining the shore
as far as eye could see each way. In the centre
of this and opposite the steamer was an inner
and compact line of torches whose bright and
combined light shone far inland and brought out
the dark foliage of the stately old trees of La
haina in Fplendid relief. Inside of this line and
on higher ground stood tho illuminated Court
House, whose balcony, thickly lighted with can
dice, looked in the distance for all the world like
.'. A BEt-T Or OlOANTlC PEARLS-
A fitting diadem to the whole tableau. Now add
to this the torch-light boat-procesftion, moving
steadily, silently, over the dark water until it
surrounded tho steamer in a blaze of light, and
you may have eome faint idea of the beautifully
grand and almost magical aspect the whole ccne
There inuet have been at least from 400 to 500
people engaged in the various parts of the exhi
bition, while nearly the entire population of the
town, men, women and children, crowded the
beach as spectators.
THE IRREPRESSIBLE BOAT-BOYS.
AmoDg the minor details should not be forgot
ten the public eririt of the Lahaina boat-boys
who, throughout the ttay of the steamer, carried
pasfenger8 to and fro free of charge.
For the arrangement and successful execution
of the whole ofi'tir the credit id chiefly due to
fiovernor rapena and to Sheriff Smith, while the
good will and ready assistance rendered by the
Lahaina population is beyond all praise.
At daylight Governor K&pena and party re
turned to the 6hore, cheeriDg as they went, which
was heartily responded to from the steamer, as
she sailed away for Maalaea, en route for Hawaii.
THEY WANT ANOTHER CHANCE.
The people of Lahaina are well pleased with
this thoir first attempt at bonfires and torch
lights, and express their determination to give

private claims of eiUtens eaftVrlng from injuries,
for which this government interposed lis good
offices with Great Britain fwr indemnity. Tbey
were rejected by Great Britain, on the ground that
they admitted no relations to the transactions of
the Confederate cruisers, and would not enleitalii
any claims either on the part of thn insurance com
panies or of original losers. When our cavern -ment

If the convention had sat and adjudicated tha

of private claims and nothing else, and bow can it
be said that this award of the Geneva Tribunal dif
fers from what the other would have beenT The
government is appealed to iu order to adopt a course
of reasoning that makes this fund wholly at its dis-
Eosul as a bounty. If tbst is so, and the claimants
ave no rights, then the rs aimed soldiers and sailors
are much greater claimants than the insured or' un
insured merchants. If we had undertaken to treat
our case with England as if she hsd been a belliger
ent aud not a friendly power, what are now Bulled
indirect claims would have been the direclest claims
in the world, aud these private claims nothing but
subsidiary and incidentally' augmenting claims, but
our claims were made upon the basis that there was
a governmental negligence on the part ef England,
whereby friendship was abused and neutrality viola
ted, and presented under that relation those private
claims as tbt incidents and the circumstances audtr
which reparation should be made, and we inserted
phrases in the tresty whioh oovered a general claim,
and, as they said, limited us substantially to these
private claims. ,;,."
We went to Geneva without having withdrawn our
claims in the least, and our counsel argued every one
of the indirect claims to the best of their ability,
among which was the claim for war premiums,
whereupon Great Britain, through her counsel, ob
jected to going on with the arbitration and moved an
adjournment, and the arbitrators were of opinion
that these premiums and insurance, and the cost of
the war, and ef the injury to corosaK-rce weia is!1
subjects that, en the principles of internaEonal law,
could be considered between cations in this relation.
Our government, under that judgment, decided that
it would not further insist upon any of these deeds of
complaint, nor of indemnity from that time forward.
Not a word was said by our government in the trib
unal on the subject of war premiums.
ZjT We clip the following from the New Vork
Herald of February 21st :
The Htdkografuic Orrict and North I'Aciric
ExrLORATioJi A Legislative Ottbaoe. It is to l e
greatly regretted that the Congressional committee
charged with retrenchment has cut down the appro
priation for the Hydrograpbie Office without reason.
The reduction proposed by the commit lee is fifty per
cent, of the meagre pittance it has heretofore doled
out to what is one of the most important arms of the
navy and was once the pride of the na'ion. The
committee have also determined to squelch the North
Pacific Ocean survey and deep sea sounding., and
consequently the cartographical labors of the chief
hydrographer, which bad been undertaken to correct
our Pacific charts, now so unsafe as to be unlit guides
for the mariner. Henceforth our commerce on alt tho
oceans will have to rely on foreign charts for purposes
of navigation if this crushing reduction now contem
plated by the committee takes effect. The Portsmouth ,
we learn, iu consequence of the withdraw! of means,
has already been detached from the survey, and the
whole work of Commander Belknap will have to go
by the board.
The committee is very astute at retrenching in
small matters, while leaving the great and stalwart
excrescences in expenditure barely peeled. Apart
from any scientific results, the deep-sea exploration
of the North Pacific and its submarine telegraphy
mu"t go together; and it is proper the navy ahonM
see to the completion of the survey. The almost
countless udeU and archipelagoes of the great ocean
have never yet been charted; indeed, there are thou
sands which yet remain to be discovered and sur
veyed. The volcanic nature of its tel. and hence the
frequent changes in the sabmerged rooks of the in
tertropical Pacific, also render frequent and full re
vision of its cartography desirable.
It is to be earnestly hoped every encouragement
will be given to this and the other hydrograpbie work
so neceesary for the navy and the whole mercantile
marine. Out of four thousand charts of foreign seas
and ports required by our seamen the Hydrographio
Office has, owing to its niggardly support by Con
gress, been enabled to supply only five hundred. The
commerce of the country has m ttber chart depot to
which it may look for reliable and trustworthy guidsa
on the ocean, and must be greatly crippled if (he sup
ply from the Washington oflice is cut oi. Tli pro
posed reduction of its appropriation virtually brings
that office to a standstill
