Next Monday, as per offi cial announcement, will bo observed aa a national bolid iy, ia comaiemoiation of the acknowledgment of Hawaiian Independence by the Governments of Great Britain and France, in 184S. Weather per mitting there will be some boat races, and perhaps a raltch gnme of base-ball. Oir Mill commenced grinding the other day shortly after the arrival of the JVttlie, her genial skipper having brought Qs from Lahaina a doien succulent sticks of cane the growth of that locality The sample was good, for after our boys bad "chawed" for an hour, there was a large sack o'rine left. f Mrsic this Afternoon.

From Princeville we ' learn that the little tug steamer Etsoluie recently made her trial trip on the Hanalei river, making satisfac tory headway up stream against an ordinary freshet, to the first rapid3. The steering gear (five rudders) was undergoing an improvement, when she would be ready for general plantation work. A Satisfactory Result. For these many years past tbe area of tbe Hawaiian Islands has been put down at six thousand square miles. One of the results of the labors of the Surveyor General and bis assistants is the establishment of the fact that we must add another thousand to tbe usually accepted Ggure. We have seven thousand square miles of territory. t The Pali Road. A gentleman who Came up from Koolau last Sunday afternoon, reports that some rocks bad tumbled into tbe road from the place where the land-slide occurred some time ago that caused the death of a native. He thinks it was caused by cattle roaming on the mountain. Tbe pali road should be carefully looked to in time ; but it is a standing disgrace to tbe country that we have not a good road to Koolau. Opium. On Monday in the Poliee Court, one Yet Sing, a sickly looking Chinaman, was charged with having in his possession, contrary to the Act of 1874, four boxes of opium (or preparation ef opium) which was seized by the police at his boose on the night of I the 13th lost. He was also charged under the same Act with selling half a dollar's worth of opium to a native on the same date. As no jurisdiction is con ferred on the Police Magistrate under the Act in question, Yet Sing was committed for trial in the Supreme Court, and it is possible that he may yet sing very small. Phenomena op the Elements. On Tuesday, while the remains of the late King were en route for the tomb at Kawaiahao, a heavy thunder storm passed over this city, some of the claps would have done honor to the locality of Cape Hatteras, famed for the superiority .of its thunder and lightning. And on the same day, in the channel between Oahu and Kauai, several large and perfect water-spouts were seen. All or which, say the more superstitious ci the natives, bad some mysterious connection with Lunalilo. Boring for Watfb. We learn that it is the inten. tion of the purchaser of the Waikapa property to tinn r.f tha r,irKao r r ,ka Waiirann nniMri, tn commence at once prospecting for water there, for the purpose of irrigation. No doubt is entertained of the existence in that neighborhood of abundant supplies of water at various distances beneath the surface, which when found will be brought op with the aid of pumps driven by windmills. We may expect to see a great chaDge in the appearance of Waikapu a year or two hence. Chanticleer's Adventure. An acquaintance cf ours had a rooster of a peculiarly pugnacious breed, which had kept the neighbouring male fowls in wholesome dread of Lis appearance. He was quite a pet in the family and frequently made domicilliary visits in doors. One morning this week be pene- trated to tbe parlor, mounted upon the sideboard, on which was a large looking glass. Observing in this the proud image of a supposed rival, he immediately gave a challenge by bristling his feathers, and before he could be interfered with, gave one vigorous dash and scattered the glass into fragments. In spite of the loss, the owner could but laugh at the affair. Plantation Melodies. A recent visitor at the Kohala Plantation gives a pleasant picture of the life among the laborers. They seemed to him to be a happy .set of people, getting through tteir allotted ta?ks some time before sundown and hav ing ample time to attend to tl.c-ir own domestic aSairs and for amusement. One of the most pro minent of the latter is singing. There are two assut-iutioud of singers, between whom there is a brisk rivalry for excellence, and the consequence is some very good music, in their way. On fine evenings the members of the singing companies (.-a' mele) gather in the neighborhood of the man ager's house, an.d sing by the hour. There is be sides another hui or association among the em ployees on the plantation, the object of which ap pears to be mutual benefit, as the members are pledged to assist each other -when sick or in need. AU oi which speuks well for native labor on plan tation? when kindly and judiciously managed. i-il-e Buttons, Cigarette Parr, etc., .

Although the basis of the suits was water itself they have been as dry as petty lawsuits cf any other nature. Nothing would wet thing up now like a good rain. The Sixteenth at Lahaina. The good people of our sister city of Lahaina cele brated His Majesty's LirthJuy moat loyally and heartily, as is graphically described in the following letter: Lahaina, Nov 17th, 1875. " The celebration of the King's birthday ycstcrJsv came off very creditably and satisfactorily. On Monday night the people of Lahaina were awakened by a discharge of heavy artillery which, not being among the expected provisions of the programme for the following day, took most ever body by surprise and sent them out of bed thoroughly wide awaka. As soon as the echoes of this had died away, the bells to all the steeples of churches and school-bouses were set a-ringing; even the old discarded bell at tbe Corner of my fence was set agoing, and for more than half an hour the din and the roar of tbe ex cited bells was unccasinir. mingled occasionally with staccato explosions oi nre-oeiis una ure-crackcrs.

In short, I have never seeni Lahaina so thoroughly wide awake, so fully unanU moas, oo-operative, cordial and good-natured. At little after 4 A. m. the Kilauea arrived, and she le(k k about 5. At 10 a. m. the exercises at Wainee Church com menced with singing by the choir under the leadership of, Mrs. Kapena; addresses by the Rev. Mr. Pali,' Governor Kapena and two other Hawaiian gentle men, inesingtng wss very good remarkably so; the addresses were also good, pertinent to the object of the day, and were received with much applause by quite a large audience. At 12 m. the govern soent officials and other gentlemen colled on tbe Governor at his rooms in tbe Government House to tffer to him, as His Majesty's representative, the Congratulations appropriate to the day. At 1 r.x. the feast was spread and ready, and ever body pro ceeded to the old stone school-house, formerly occu pied by Mr. Mason, where it was very neatly and abundantly arranged. The pleasure of the feast was enhanced by music from the Band and singing by the choir. I should think (without actual count) that between five and six hundred people sat down to dinner. Two long tables, reaching nearly the whole length cf that large bouse, each capable of seating p wards of 100 persons, were filled three or four times. There was abundance of everything and excellently well cooked. After the feast, nearly every available horse in town was put into requlsU tion, and the streets literally swarmed with gay equestrians In the evening there were balls at two different places, one where the dinner had been, and the other in the former billiard saloon cf IToopii. Both places were filled with dancers who enjoyed themselves until after 12 o'clock, when Lahaina went to bed nd awoke this morninir to its usual quiet life, but with the pleasing recollection of an agreeable day added to its existence. " To tbe great credit cf Lahaina It most be re marked that no drunkenness, rowdyism or untoward accident occurred to mar the pleasure cf the day no headaches for the morrow's morning. Aid to Governor Kapena belongs all the praise for the suc cessful arrangement of that day's festival. He was tbe moving spirit, ubiquitous an1 indefatigable. Long may he live, and, his shadow never be less !" Jottings from California. A letter from San Francisco, received by the last mail, and dated November 'Jth, says : Tbe fire of Virginia City is a great nisfvrtune to this coast, coming as it does on the heels cf the late financial troubles. Several of the richest mines In the vicinity (the Bonanzas) had mills, machinery. hoisting works, etc.. destroyed, thus throwing thou sands of workmen out of employment, and what is still worse, causing a cessation cf ttveial million dollars worth cf ore making its appearance above ground until the means for hoiatiog can be replaced, which will be about the first cf January. All this seriously affects San Francisco, as tbe mines are principally owned by San Francisco capitalists, and as it will take millions to repair damages to the mines and rebuild the city again, this money will have to be furnished principally by San Francisco, and for the next few months a fearful scarcity cf coin will be the result. This city has acted nobly In behalf cf the destitute Virginians, and with little or no delay several Relief Committees were formed for the purpose of aseisticg. Money, provisions, eloth- ing and other necessaries are being forwarded daily by express and railroad companies free cf charge, The churches of the various societies asiit4ed gener- ouely, as did also several cf our places of amusement.
