brought up m fore the Police Justice on Tues
day, on a charge of stealing $fX0 from Arccnio

defendant remanded to the ICth inst.
" -j ' The S.S. Mei-Foo arrived iu Hongkong ou
4th April, and the Septinia on the 5th. They
saibd hence on the 12th of March, the Mei-Foo
thus making the passage iu on day less than
her rival. It is rumored in Hong Kong that the
Mei-Fo -wiil not bring another relay of China

v' IV ierniissioii of the President of the
Hoard of If. alth. our manager Mr. F. H. Hay
s 1.1. n w. nt t the i-Iand of Lanai in order to
vaccinate its people. There are alout 240 people
011 the island without a physician, or e.fficial e.f
any kind residing tin re, and they would 1
particularly helpless, should a contagious dis
ease attack them. Th- Hoard furnished a supply
of new vaccine virus sufficient t twice vaccinate
the whole jMipnlatioti.
I 'tf' F.y lett.-r dated Home, Italy, April l'.th,
we are informed that:
' I!y Minist rial decree of the Minister of the
Navy, dated April 12th, Uobt. W. Iloyd was ad
mitted to the Royal Naval Academy, of Naples.
Ily Minist.-rial decree of the Minister of War,
dated April Isth, Hold. W. Wilcox was admitted

: ' The P. M. S. S. City of Sydney was not
put into .u.iraiitiue 011 le-r arrival at San Fran
cisco, notwithstanding the regulations issued by
the Hoard of If. altli of that city a short time
previously. The peculiar ways of Hawaiian
nfnctalilotn are often attributeil to the intluence
of climate and the sin illness of the place.
Much more probably do the proximity of "the
Coast " and the character of California!! example
account for them.
ZIP On the 1st iiist., Louis Dubois was
charged with having emiiie-.zle.l .2.322.57 the
property of tic- Postmaster General. The case
was heard on Tuesday last, when evidence was
adduced to show that postage stamps to the
value first stated had been received by the de
fendant and remained unaccounted for by the de
partment. Mr. Russell, counsel f.r Duliois asked
for his tl i s harg". the testimony showing no defi
cit of eash. Mr. Justice Hickerton held that there
was snm.-ieiit evidence to put the defendant on
his defence, and at Mr. Russell's request, an ad
journment was granted. lestenlay he was
again brought up and was committed for trial,
his defence being reserved. The offence being
against the Government is not bailable.
Thk Revised Testament. On this subject a
ree-ent Press telegram from London savs ;
Orders for 2.0OO,OM copies of the revised New
Testament have already been reeeived and partly
filled. Public feeling, however, is strongly
against the work, and many ef the alterations
are looked upon as uee.lless aud mischievous.
The changes in the Lord's Prayer have raised a
storm of protests. Even the Greek purists
condemn th.-m, while in the popular judgment
the tampering with a form of prayer familiar to
every family in the land is sufficient to condemn
the entire work. The lnK.k sells fer the moment,
but the old version will hold its ground. The
crowds at the distributing oflices have been so
great that the traffic in the streets has been
almost stopped. The Revision Committee ou
the Old Testament has closed its sixty-ninth
session, and carried the revision to the end of
the ' ' Songs of Solomon,' "

h.-r own child, the last Emperor, and thus retain
the power f theGovernment in her own hands.
She has di l of consumption. The period e.f
mourning extends to one hundred days, which
will bring the people with their heads of lfng
uncomfortable hair into the middle of summer.
Every man is therefore running for the barber
t. get shaved. During the next few days, this
.-rati.n. as well as pre-arranged marriages,
may take pla , after which no razor must
touch tin- scalp till the expiry of the period e.f
niourniii;-. Ii the hair gets positively too long
and uncomfortable, the uds may be snipped off
on the s'v. What effect this death may have on
the Chinese Government remains to be seeu.
Most Chin. se are inclined to think that good
will be th..- result. Her act of putting her ne
phew upon the throne, against all precedent,
will not soon be forgotten.
The following is the Chin-i .Wiil't account
e.f the King's speech at the luncheon given to
him by Mr. Chater, at Kowloong: "The speech,
though short, was very happily adapted to the
circumstances and to the occasion. He spoke
of the pleasant surprise which he had experien
ced here from the cordial reception with which
he had l-en met, and the kind hospitality of
w hich he had been the recipient from II. E. the Go
vernor and others, ami more particularly the
hearty hospitality of their worthy host. This was
the first time he had set foot upon the soil of a Brit
ish Crown Colony; and as he had just concluded
a treaty of reciprocity with the United States, he
desired now to propo that a similar reciprocal
treaty be now rrranged. viz., of good feeling
between this Colony aud his country. He then
referred to the splendid array of racing trophies
belonging to Mr. Chater, as being the spoils of
pleasure; an.l he announced his desire to send
from his country a cup to be competed for by
the Racing Cluh h-re, stipulating that Hong
kong, by way of reciprocity, should send a cup
to Honolulu. The King's remarks, which were
couched in Excellent English were interrupted
with vociferous and frequent applause; and
His Majesty resumed his seat amid the expres
sion of the greatest inthusiasm."
People wlio live in glass houses should not J
throw stones.". If the Gazette will look at its j
own Mortuary Report, it will say 110 more about j
the Advertiser's. i
3?" We find iu several late Shanghai papers,
which contain an account of the King's visit,
a long letter of Mr, J. W. A. von Wallenstein,
who recently visited the islands, in which he
gives many interesting particulars of Hawaiian
history, sugar culture, and e.ther matters.
IV" In the matter of Rachel Lewis (as admin
istratrix) vs the- New York Life Assurance Co.,
the Court has ordered judgment to be recorded
for the defendants non obstante veredicto. From
thi3 decision the Chief Justice is a dissentient.
We shall publish the judgment in full next

This will leave a net sum of about $400, which

has been so useful and so popular. Among

Our correspondent, speaking ef the Chi
nese laborers and prrters at Tientsin, says "they
work from C a. m., to 12, and from 1 p. m., to C
p. m., without 5 minutes interval ; and know
nothing of a Sunday, or day of rest. They
pack from 150 to 200 pounds on their backs, and
climb with their burthen a steep plank f.ne foot
wide. For this hard drudgery they receive 1C0
cash, or 1 cents per day and find themselves,
and a wife and some children, on such pay."
" I can now say with truth that the Hawaiian
Kingdom is a Paradise, iu the fullest and deep
est sense e.f the term, to every Chinaman there."
Is not concealing small-pox a worse
crime than stealing a coat ? Knowing, as we
now do, how many lives have been lost in Hon
olulu through the former misdemeanor, most of
us will be ready to answer that question em
phatically in the affirmative. Ou Tuesday last
John Kio was condemned to four months im
prisonment with hard labor for stealing a coat
valued at $5, and the same day a Chinaman was
tine-d S-10 for cemcealing a case of small-pox,
which occurred in his own family. The magis
trate ought to have it in his power to indict
punishment e-oiumeusurate with the magnitude
of the evil proved to result fre.ni this serious
Ou Sunday last a Chinaman named Kih
Chun Sung was shot by a fellow-countryman
named Nip Kin. The e-ause of this crime is
understeod to be similar to that in which the
Pauoa Valley murder originated. Nip Kin
owed his assailant a small sum of money, which
he could not or would not pay, and the latter
balauce-d the account bj shooting his debtor.
Tim weapon used was a pistol, the ball from
which entered Nip Kia's back, and grazing the
eleventh rib, passed into the bowels, injuring
them iu such a way as to cause death. The vic
tim ef this brutal and unprovoked assault died
at the hospital about ten o'clock on Tuesday
night. Kih Chun Sung has been committed i
for trial ou a charge of murder.
13?' Mrs. Edward Townseuel was charged
last Saturday with having assaulted her husband,
and pleaded guilty. She was further charged
with "maintaining a common nuisance," by
continually disturbing the neighborhood of her
dwelling iu Alakea Street. The evidence
showed that for six or seven weeks Mrs. Towns
end had indulged in so much noise and ouar-
relling that she herself was a nuisance to her
neighbors aud the public. As a husband is J
bound to maintain his wife, and the technical j
charge is that ef " maintaining a common j
nuisance," it would appear that the husband I
ought to have been the tlefendant in this case, j
At the request of the prosecution sentence was I
deferred ten daj-s, the object being to allow th e j
nuisance to abate itself by seeking a more con
genial clime. :
ltjT Hawaiian Legislators are generally sup
posed by their constituencies to enjoy certain
advantages and perquisites, in addition to their
pay, and the honor of serving their country. We
never found out what these especial advantages
and perquisites of Hawaiian Legislators were;
but, we see that other Legislators, the Members
of the Parliament of New South Wales for
instance, make something out of their position;
as they receive each one, when elected, a golden
medal or token, as a railway puss to enable them
to tour it round the country. And, as it is re--eiuired
of thm to return this golden token at
the close of their term, the Sydney Bulletin
says that pawnbrokers have been warned that
such tokens are government property, and can
not be held in pledge. If a golden token be
presented as a pass for a ride, why might it not
be used, at a pinch, as a pledge for a good din
ner A railwav pass would not oe mudi 01 a
perquisite for a Hawaiian Legislator; but a
steamlioat pass from Hawaii to Kauai, would be
worth something, and would be acceptable with
either a tin or cardboard pass.
C-Sy About 3 o'clock on Tuesday morning,
a considerable portion of the wharf commonly
known as " Brewer's," subsided into the water.
The previous afternoon this wharf had presented
a busy scene whilst a large quantity of sugar
was being landed from the Kilauea Hon. It is
certainly fortunate that the collapse did not take
place then, or many persons might have been
hurt possibly another manslaughter case might
have been the outcome of the affair. It is to be
presumed that the Minister of the Interior will
be he-Id responsible for the inconvenience and
cost resnlting from this collapse of a structure
which is in his charge, through his " omission
to do what a man of intelligence might be ex
pected to do." The mishap appears to have
arisen through the after row of piles, which sup
ported the stone facing of the reclaimed ground
behind the wooden wharf, having given away.
Those in the front row remained in their original
position and the outer frame-work of the wharf
was intact. The made ground behind the wooden
wharf, for aliout half its length appears to have
pushed forward the lower end of the piles in
the after row aud slipped bodily into the sea,
leaving a gap of about ten feet behind the
wooden flooring. The ground which subsided
has lately been subjected to some unusually
heavy weights of bricks and sand, and these
were no doubt the proximate cause of the acci
dent. It is difficult, however, to understand,
why it should not have happened when the un
accustomed strain was there to account for it,
instead of occurring in the middle of a quiet night,
when there was nothing on the wharf. The
repair will take a considerable time. The stones,
Sec, will have to be fisheel out of the deep
water in front of the wharf, and new piles driven,
before the sunken area can again be reclaimed.
The Superintendent of the Public Works esti
mates that it will be seven or eight weeks before
the wharf is ready for use again.
The Kine's Tour around the World.
Last days in Japan.
The arrival of the "Ella" gives us somo
three weeks later particulars of the move
ments of our royal travelling party. Our
latest previous news was the departure of
His Majesty King Kalakaua from Yoko
hama, the 16th March on board the steam
ship Tokio Maru. His Majesty was accom
panied on the journey by the Princes and
Daimios, who had been commanded by the
Emperor to attend upon the King as especial
escort, during every hour of his stay in
Japan. The courtesy and royal attention
shown to our King in Japan, recals the
spirit of princely courtesy of the noblest
days of the mediaeval chivalry of Christea
elom. Hawaii is placed under tleep obliga
tion to Japan.
The royal party arrived at Kobe on the
ISth March and were received by the
Governor of the City with ceremonious at
tention; but having other calls to make at
expectant cities, their stay was limited to
a few hours. His Majesty rested a short
while at the Governor's residence; and
during his stay visited a grand and ancient
palace, and one of the extensive temples of
Japan. The palace ef Kobe is surrounded
by a wall 12 feet high and three feet thick
at the top. In the great audience Hall is a
throne of a large ilimension and singular
structure. In the centre of the Hall is a
raist-d square dais, of gold and Vermillion
lacquer. This is covered with a canopy of
heavy embroidered silk of the richest qual
ity. In the centre of the dais is a throne
chair, of brilliant gold and Vermillion lac
quer; and the roof of this stately hall is
supported by 12 lofty smooth columns, or
resplendent shafts with surfaces of polished
gold. On each side of the dais, are suspended
pictures of the Emperor and the Empress
of Japan. All the doors of the palace are
frames covered with pictured tapestry, and
are moo veil in groooves or slides. We
cannot dwell on the details of the beauties
of the palace which have been sent us; as
it will anticipate the elaborate account
forthcoming in Col. Armstrong's book de
scriptive of the tour. But one particular
we will notice a beautiful miniature lake
in the palace grounds, enclosed by box
bush shrubbery. A narrow causeway,
shaded with the rarest shrubbery leads to a
reck in the centre of the pellucid lake.
This rock is overgrown with mosses and
cre-epers, and has a elclightful cool grotto
recess; and in this sweet spot, whose
sacred privacy is only invaded by the lake
carp, or the Japanese thrush, their Im
perial Majesties of Xiphon come to cool
their sacred persons during the summer
At the Uudhhist temple, a grand and
gloomj' structure, two dozen priests robed
in vari colored silks and gold, received the
King and suite. The royal party were
conducted into the presence of the collos
sal images of IJuddha; the IJaeliva or Sacred
Parent of the ancient Asiatic world. Our
travellers were allowed to gaze a short
while but not to enter the recesses where
the god anl' the symbolic dragon were
placed. In one of these recesses, or conse
crateel niches, they saw placed behind Bud
dha, a large painting representing a "lamb
in the lap of the Son of Buddha." After a
' time wandering through the halls of the
I great temple, the high priest conducted
1 His Majesty to a tasteful chamber, where
I refreshments were served in rare and
unique style. Prominent upon a beautiful
lacquered table was a large fish about 2
feet long, and showing all the natural
bright colors, gold, ebony and scarlet of one
of the most beatiful of the sclerodtrmes
(the parrot fish that sports in Hawaiian
waters). And yet the fish was well cooked,
and these colors were the tints of wholesome
condiments applied by the artist of Bud
elha's cuisine, after the culinary process was
accomplished. A marvelous fish and birds
and flowers of confectionery astonished the
eyes of the travellers from the far Pacific
islands, and were presented to His Majes
ty to be forwarded to his island home. The
high priest said that no one had sat at this
table before except the Emperor or Mikado.
His Majesty was seated upon a beautiful
chair made of polished tortoise shell. The
old high priest explained before eating, that
this was the table of sacrifice of the MikadoJ
a sort of altar of thank offering. And a
tray of small red papers, incense powder,
and small fruits were placed before His
: Majestj, and a small portion of each were
I burned in an urn or censer; and after this
form of Buddhist grace, the party fell too,
and partook of a marvelous and most appe-
I After leaving the temple His Majesty
visited several schools; one where little girls
were taught embroidery; and some schools
i of boys; and the King was delighted with
: the bright appearance and cheerfulness of
; the littlestudents of the several institutions.
! Afterwards His Majesty and suite partook
; of tiffin, or lunch w.ith His Excellency the
' Governor of Kobe.
The royal party on leaving Kobe proceed
ed by rail to Osaka elistant 24 miles, and
made a run at stage coach speed in 4 hours.
Here the same ceremonies were repeated
by the Governor of the city, as at Kobe. A
grand dinner was prepared; which how
ever the royal party had to decline. From
Osaka the royal partyproceeded to Kioto;
, and thence to the beautiful city of Xanga
saki. At this jioint, the four princes, who had
escorted the King; and who had waited on
His Majesty during everj- hour of his stat
in Japan, now took affectionate congee of
their royal guest; who embarked March
22d on the Tokio Maru, that had been
despatched expressly to wait on His Majesty,
and transport the royal party to Shanghai.
ARRIVAL IN CHINA.
His' Majesty and suite arrived off the bar
of the Shanghai roadsted on the 2oth March
aud were taken thence by tug to the
city, anil were escorted by Mr Jansen to
the Astor Hotel. After a rest on the fol
lowing day, His Majesty was waited upon
by the Taotai, or chief magistrate of the
city, and other Chinese dignitaries, and
foreign representatives, of which we present
particulars gleaned from local papers. The
party took rides on the rigshsw, or one
wheeled Chinese express at the rate of 10
cash, or one cent a mile. "Witnessed a re
view, and were well entertained during a
. short stay at Shanghai.
On the 27th March the royal party em
barked on the Pautah, one of the China
Merchants Steamer Line ; the King having
been informed by the President of the

residing at Tientsin, this vessel was placed
at the disposal of His Majesty. The royal
party steamed over the Yellow Sea, and
arrived at the bar of the Bund, on the
morning of the 29th March. On the follow
ing day, all the foreign representatives in
the city waited on nis Majesty on board the
rautah, as detailed in extracts from our
exchanges. On the 31st His Majesty and
suite calleel upon the Viceroy Li Hang the
Trime Minister and actual Ruler of China.
This distinguished official of the great
Empire speaks little or no English, there
fore His Majesty needed the assistance of
an interpreter during a lengthy and highly
interesting conversation. His Majesty with
his thoughts ever patriotically occupied
with the interests of his country, discussed
on this occasion the great need of his little
Kingdom, owing to the disproportion of
sexes, of more women accompaning the
emigration to his realm. The enlightened
Viceroy expressed a high appreciation of
nis Majesty's patriotic anxiety in order to
promote the increase and better social
order of his island Kingdom, and said that
should any farther emigration of the people
of the Empire for the Sandwich Islands
take place, lie would favor all in his power,
the emigration of women and families,
provided some provision was made by His
Majesty's Government to assist female
The following day the 1st of April, the
Viceroy waited upon His Majesty on board
the Pautah. His Excellency and suite were
conveyed in a splendid steam launch. Thej
arrived n board punctual to appointment
at noon, and remained several hours on
board. The conversation was of a highly
interesting character, relating to a proposi
tion of treaty, of which we do not wish to
divulge any more particulars than may be
authorized by our Minister of Foreign
Affairs, who is in possession of the discus
sion, or preliminary negotiation of the
At Tientsin the royal party met with old
acquaintances in the persons of Lai Sun, a
wealthy mandarin, who had received a
classical education in America, and Mr.
William French an officer of the Custom
House. Mr. French was born in these
islands. His mother, formerly a Miss Hunt,
married Mr. Wm. French, a pioneer among
the foreign merchants of Honolulu ; aud
besides this son in China, another of her
children is the w ife of Hon. John E. Bush.
After the departure of the Viceroy, in the
evening of the same day ; the royal party
went ashore, to partake of a grand Chinese
dinner and soiree, given by the Viceroy in
honor of His Majesty in the spacious build
ing of the China Merchants Steamship Co.
At 0.30 the arrival of the Viceroy was
announced. A few minutes afterwards, as
His Majesty and suite entered, three guns
were f.red. (The royal salute of China.)
The feast was a marvel of Chinese ingenuity
and luxury, and there was present on the
occasion a splendid display of official
Chinese dress, and of foreign uniforms,
particulars of which we clip from our ex
changes, but no ladies. As the King
noticed the absence of the gentler sex, His
Majesty was informed by a distinguished
manelarin that official etiquette forbade the
presence of ladies on such an occasion ; and
in vindication of Chinese custom he said
that Chinese ladies, who had no assemblies
or Church meetings for mutual display and
encounter, which Western civilization"
favored, but had to stay at home with
their families, generally loved and spoke
well of their neighboring sisters ; and the
worthy mandarin wished to know if the
ladies of His Majesty's capital were all
animated by this excellent and amiable
spirit. His Majesty's reply is not reported,
but it was no doubt dictated by that wisdom
and discretion requisite to meet the possi
ble irony and insidious character of the
KKTUKN TO SHANGHAI.
On the 2d April His Majesty and suite
re-embarked on board the Pautah, and
steaming back over the Yellow Sea, return

As it is understood that His Majesty set
out for Tientsin, intending to proceed
thence to Pekin, elistant overland about
sixty miles, and travel on horseback
from the former city to the cairital ; and
that His Majesty did not do so, is simply
accounted for by the death of her late
Chinese Imperial Majesty, styled the
Western Empress. The whole nation was
in mourning, and rigid etiquette would
have forbidden any official display at Pekin,
necessary for the reception of a King.
On the return to Shanghai, His Majesty
was invited to take up his residence at the
residence of H. II. M, Consul Mr. Jansen

EMIGRATION OF CHINESE FAMILIES.
'From the Hong Kong Daily A'ew..
His Majesty is alive both to the present
needs and the future possibilities of his
beautiful little Kingdom. He is anxious
to obtain a steady llow f emigrants to
Hawaii who will settle down there and
make it their home. The Chinese are, on
some accounts, in favor in Hawaii, but
hitherto they have not made good settlers.
They are almost invariably unaccompanied
by their female relations, and have proved
mere birds of passage', coming and going
without adding anything to the permanent
prosperity of the islands. What is required
by the Hawaiian Government is the emi
gration of families who would be willing
to settle down on the soil, and fill the gaps
ttiat are annually made by the excess of
deaths over births among the native popu
lation. During his interview with His
Excellency Li Hung-chang, the King
represented this necessity to the great
Viceroy, who appeared to cordially approve
of the emigration of Chinese families to a
country where they have uniformly met
with excellent and kindly treatment; but
whether His Majesty is likely to succeed in
his object in China is, we think, very
doubtful indeed, unless he etan secure the
cordial co-operation of the Chinese Author
ities, and his Government can advance the
passage-money for the women and children.
It is probable that better success would
attend him in India, if the emigration is
to be assisted. Save for the distance that
intervenes, the islands would no doubt at
tract some of the surplus population of old
Erin, but Hnwaii is a far cry from any
centre of Caucasian population, and it
must, we think, look to the Orient for its
future inhabitants. But, from whatever
source the necessary stream of emigrants
is to be obtained, we cordially wish His
Majesty success in his mission, and a pleas
ant and instructive tour round the world.

The Lodge having been raised to the Mas
ter Mason's Degree, there were announced
as visitors, the Very Worshipful Bro. C. P.
Chater, Deputy Grand Master, who was
accompanied by the Right Worshipful Bro.
Kalakaua, King of Hawaii. The King had
been accompanied from Government House
by Worshipful Bro. E. C. Ray, Acting Mas-
trr of Victoria Lodcre. and was received ai
the Hall by Very Worshipful Bro. C. 1
Chater, Deputy D.G.M., and Bro. W. H.
Ray, Acting S.W. Victoria Lodge. The
Brethren received the visitors, all present
standing to order, afler which, to the call
of the D.D.G.M., he was saluted with the
Royal sign. The Lodge was then worked
down to the First degree', when Colonel C.
H. Judd, who had been balloted for and ad
mitted at the last Regular meeting, was
duly received into Masonry. The Lodge
was then closed in Peace, Love nnd Harmo
ny. The working of the Lodge was admir
able throughout, and the beauty and effect
of the proceedings was greatly enhanced by
the singing of two or three beautiful Ma
sonic hvmns, with onrau accompaniment.
Before the Lodge closed the D.D.G.M. said,
Brethren: I am sure you all feel with me
highlv honoured that we have amongst us
to-night as a visitor, His Majesty the King
of the Hawaiian Islands. This is " the first
time Royalty has visited one of our Lodges,
and I regret very much that the illness of
the Grand Maste'r prevents our entertain
ing him in the way we should have done.
I am sure Your Majesty will overlook any
short-comings arising from the reasons 1
havojust mentioned. We can, however,
brethren, express our respect for our dis
tinguished visitor by standing to order as
Free Masons, which I now call on you to
do." The Lodge then stood to order In
honour of the King. When the Lodge had
been closed and a hymn sung the brethren
were called to refreshment, and n special
bumper was called for by the I). I). G. M.
to the King's health, which call was heart
ily obeyed. The 1). D. G. M. also proposed
" Three' cheers for the King, and may he
foster the Craft as it deserves." In this call
the brethren also joined with cordiality.
Tlie proceedings of the evening were most
harmonious and well conducted through
out, were then bromrht to a ciose. His Ma
jesty signed his name in the visitor's book,
"David Kalakaua; Le Progres de 1' Oceanic,
No. 121," and has consented, we understand,
to become an honorary member of tho Vic
toria Lodge here.

speech, in the course of which he said that
though his kingdom had no commercial
treaty with the Colony of Hongkong he
should he glad to enter into on of friend
ship with it. and (referring to Mr. Chatcr's
collection of racing cups)would feel pleasure
in forwarding a cup to he contested lor at
the next annual races, and he had no doubt
his friends in Hongkong would return the
compliment and send one to Honolulu. A
long continued outburst of applause follow
ed this sally. His Majesty concluded by
gracefully proposing the health of Her
Majesty the (iueeii. The toast was received
with fervent acclamation. His Excellency
W. N. Armstrong then proposed, In a
speech complimentary alike to the Govern
ment and the Colony, the health of His Ex
cellency Sir John Pope Hennessy. He said
he had heard of His Excellency alike as a
member of the Fnglish Parliament and
as a successful administrator in several
colonies, and he had much pleasure in pro
posing his health on that occasion. Tlid
toast was drunk with enthusiasm, three
cheers being giving for the Governor. His
Excellency Sir John Pope llcnne'ssy re
sponded iu his happiest vein, and made an
exceedingly neat and graceful little speech,
which was again and again applauded.
After thanking them for the kind manner
in which they had received the toast of his

Chater' n health in the most flattering terms
saying that Hongkong was deservedly
proud of their friend. The toast was re
ceived with prolonged plaudits and a vorwo
of " For lie's a jolly good fellow." Mr.
Chater replied iu feeling terms. He had
always been attached to Hongkong, and
he felt that every year he loved it better.
It enjoyed many advantages, but chiefest
among them he ranked the good feeling
that prevailed among the community. Ho
