NOTES OF TIIK WEEK.
I. O. G. T. We are requested to saj that a fu'.l
attendance of members ot Ultima Thule Lodge Is
requested this evening. Business of importance.
The Kilaiea, having been laid Ly a week for
repairs, will resume her regular trips on Tvttday
next, leaviug on that daj fur Ililo and intermediate
Independence Dat. 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

Monday evening next, Nov. 29, at 7J o'clock.
River Steamer. 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
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.

The good people of our sister city of Lahaina cele

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

time the streets were full of people, young, old and

Lahaina so thoroughly wide awake, so fully unanU

little after 4 A. m. the Kilauea arrived, and she le(k

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
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 !"

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.

cf the Polynesians. Mr. Gill told, that tbe present
race entered the Pacifia from the soulh-eaat folk cf
New Guinea, but were Jriveo eastward by the fierce
Negri'o race. The greatest distance from laoJ to

ward passage, would le from Samoa to the Ilervej
group, a distance cf only about 700 tuiltw. Mr.
Gill will also shortly pabliaU a book oa the ftoage

wander about the banks of the Murray, bat are also
