NOTES OF THE WEEK.
I if Oar supplement to-day contains the
Utter from our Eurcpean correspondent, foreign
news and much other interesting matter.
7 b1" The Board of Health will hold a meeting
t.A-d.iy. It is understood that the subject of
cancelling the present quarantine regulations
will rn-cupy the attention of the Board.
I f Alluding to the Annual Report of the
Pitciiu- Mail Steamship Company, the San Fran
cisco Evhinq Post remarks: ' An analysis of
the traffic n-turns demonstrates the fact that the
colonial and island trade was really the most
profitable branch of the Pacific Mail Company's
business last vear."

The Band will enve an extra concert on 31on-
dav evening. June 27tlu at the Hawaiian Hotel.
Thf answer filed on lx half of the Cap
tain and owm rs of the M e Foo in the case now
landing in imr Admiralty Court, raises several
points of public importance. The Captain,
uhile admitting that he brought here a number
of i-asM iirN some of whom were ill of small
p ix. claims that ho gave full notice to the proper
oftut-rs "i the existence on said steamship of
said infections disease, and that e-ai.1 steamship
and her oflWrs audcrew were theieupoii brought
int." the said port (Honolulu) by the authority
and order of thf proper Municipal Officers of
tlie Kingdom. He d-nies that in conse
quence of this brin-inL; in he Ucame liable to
Aiiy the expenses that the Board of Health
should incnr in consequence of the sliip's Wing
thns brought in and put into quarantine, bnt
admits that in order to get away he obtained the
tAitretit-s. who are nnv also Ining sue.1 by the
Board of Health, but denies that any sum is
..wing by him or on his lx-half in resect of the
expense the Board may have chosen to incur.
He protest that his sureties have ulready spent
over 12,1110 "in consequence of and pursuant
to the request " of the President of the Board
of Health, and that the sum now claimed i not
due. He further claims that a suit has been
brought in the Supreme Court against his sure
ties, based on identical causes of action. Mr.
Prestou, for the Government, traversed the last
part of the answer, and this matter was argued
on Monday list. For the respondent it was
nred that it is a general principle of law that
persons sh ill not le harassed by unnecessary
snits. A judgment in either of the pending
suits would put a btop to the other, The Gov
ernment fir-t submitted the question to a jury,
and seemed now to seek to avoid a jury, and get
the Court to decide it ; invoking also a conflict
of jurisdiction. It was abo contended that the
ship WJ Ittn rtU-ised previously for valuable
consideration, and the Government were
estopped from pro 'ceding ag.iinst her. Mr.
Preatou replied, defending the action of the
Government, on the ground that the sureties,
in consideration of whose bond the ship was
first released, had refused payment of thia claim.
The Conrt took the matter " under adTinement."
W There bus lxcu a rninor of the ill li alth '
of BULop JIaigrif.but we ure pl a--l ! .ini 1
that MoniM-igueur contiutiet iu the t njoynu nt f
a tolrTitM? fair share of hf-alth. cnusid .-riir his ,
udvancedj-furs; and we are well assured that the ;
revered prelate, beloved by the people of th-se
islands of all creeds, continues, ia spite of the
weight of years, the charge of the administration
of hia diocese, temporal and spiritual with hi
wont.-,! vior and clearii-ss of underitandii'.'j.
f if In their circular letter inviting subscrip
tions the tnistees of Oahu College say, " there
ought also to lie an Astronomical observatory in
this important central spot in the Pacific it
should be connected with this school."' The
trustees can hardly have appreciated properly
either the first cost of au observatory (worthy of
the name) or the projier character and annual
cost of its administration, when they propose to
make it an appanage of a struggling institution.
Nevertheless, their suggestion that there ought
to be an observatory here, and that, iu some
sense, its staff and appiances should be available
for the instruction of ourjrouth, is a sound one,
and worthy of more consideration than it is
likely to get.
Depaetckk of the MoBvisci Stae. The
missionary brig Morning Star, Captain
Isaiah Bray, left this port on the afternoon
of the 23rd iust., on her usual cruise to advance
the cause of religion, and to aid in the enlighten
ment of the inhabitants of the Micronesian
islands. A largf number of friends to the
undertaking, prominent among whom were His
Excellency H. A. P. Carter, Rev. Dr. Hyde. Rev.
S. V. Damon. Rev. W. Frear, Rev. A. O. Forbes.
Rev. Mr. Bingham, Rev. Mr. Baldwin, Rev. H.
IP Parker. S. B. Dole, Esq., Mr. P. Cushman
Jones, and many ladies, assembled on oard the
vessel to take part in the religious services held
on loard before departure, and also to bid God
speed to Mrs. I.. V. Snow and Miss Cathcart
who were going as passengers and workers in
the cause. After the religious services the
vessel got underweijvh at 4 p. M.. and was piloted
outward under the direction of Capt. Babcock
Dr. Hyde and Rev. Mr. Forbes accompanying
the departing missionaries to the outer buoy.
Csy H. B. M. S. Trinmph, flagship of thd
F.nglish squadron in the Pacific, is daily expect
eil to call at this port and as she is a hue spe
cimen of modern naval architecture, we reproduce
the following description of the vessel (with some
additions) which appeared in the ApvkrtisEP. of
May 14th. The Triumph is an armored bark
rigged ram. with an armor belt, at water line, C
and S inches thick, and running clear round
the hull: she is 2!0 ft long, o.j ft broad, horse
jHiwt r 4S'.2. speed about 13 knots. Her great
draft, 2G ft. may prove an obstacle to her coining
inside the harbor. She has a central battery or
armored casement, containing six nine-inch
Woolwich rifles, three on-each side, and a square
armored redoubt directly alove, containing four
nine-inch rifles, one in each corner. These guns
are protected fore and aft by armored thwart
ship bulkheads, Thns, from this big " iron box",
she can fire two 1ow, two stern, and four broad
side guns. Besides this she has a battery of
four 01-pounder Woolwich guns on the upper
deck for defence against torpedo boats. The iron
pilot house on the forecastle communicates with
battery and engine and has steam steering wheel.
Aft mi the bridge is another pilot house having
the same arrangements and a steam steering
wheel. Down below the water line is another
wheel and on deck are two more, making live in
all. The hull is of iron, sheathed with wood
and divided into water tight compartments by
iron bulkheads. The Triumph carries several
Whitehead torpedoes which can be discharged
from her sides by comp -i-sed air. It is to be
hoped that public inspection will be allowed on
her arrival here.
I f Dr. Luke A. Port, well known in connec
tion with the press in the Stateof Missouri is at
present on a visit to Honolulu, having in view
the opening of direct commercial relations
between the port of San Diego and these islands.
The .Sun Diejo Union sajs of his inisson : "Dr.
L. A. Port leaves here for Honolulu, for the
purpose of establishing a regular line of steamers
or sailing vessels to ply between San Diego and
Honolulu." The opening of such communications
implies a trade to be supplied, and the enterpris
ing people at San Diego have conceived the idea
of importing their own sugars, rice and other
articles in which there can be profitable ex
change, direct from the islands, and sending in
return their own produce. They claim that
both as to price and quality they can successfully
compete with San Francisco in the supply of
flour, hay, potatoes, and such fruits as the
neglected condition of husbandry here may offer a
market for. The men of San Diego believe that
there is a great future before their city, which
possesses the only good harbor to the South of
San Francisco within the limits of the United
States. San Diego is to become the Western
terminus of the Atlautic and Pacific railway and
through that line, and its rivals, will have
command of the trade of a great territory, in
cluding the major part of Texas, New Mexico,
Arizona, and Southern Utah, besides having
excellent rail connections with the Eastern
States. We gladly welcome this proposed com
petition in the supply of our many wants, and
hope that a mutually profitable trade will soon
be established with our San Diego friends.
YiT The character of the flow from Mr. Loo
Ngawk's artesian well, the successful comple
tion of which was recorded in the Advertiser
on the 4th instant, is looked upon as a confirm
ation of the opinions of those who believe there
is only one water-bearing stratum accessible to
us in this neighborhood. Although the depth
of the several Innings in the neighborhood of
Honolulu is very various, the height to which
the water will rise from the great subterranean
cistern they have tapped, appears to be identical
in all of them. Some 4,0 or 47 feet above the
level of the sea is the highest point to which
the water from our artesian wells has risen in a
natural manner. The water in the King's well
stands at a similar level, and there has, up to the
present time, leeu no successful attempt to se
cure a supply of water at a higher level. Sink
ing deeper, after once securing a supply, is
evidently of no nse, if by that means it is hoped
to secure from the source which supplies exist
ing wells a greater pressure andconsquent higher
delivery of the water. The well sunk for His
Majesty struck the water-bearing stratum at
about 153 feet from the surface, and operations
were continued for C79 feet, through rocks of
similar character, and evidently forming part of
the great reservoir from which all our wells are
supplied. The subject is one of much public
interest, because if there be no chance of reach
ing wat-r which will rise higher than that
already tapped, the work now going on by the
Makiki reservoir is to be labor wasted, unless it
be found worth while to enlarge the well and
put in expensive pumping apparatus. Mr.
Pierce, whose opinion ought to be of much
weight, is known to be sanguine that water can
be had from artesian wells at a higher level than
has hitherto been seemed. The facts, so far as
they havo been developed, appear to be against
this theory; but in the meantime hope is not
abandoned either by hi:u or by the Water Sup
ply Department, The success or otherwise of
the Government bore at Makiki will probably
decide the question.

for hearing iu the Police Court last Wednesday
The .Tndge, on Thursday, ordered Alfred Rhodu:
to be committed for trial nt the July term, an

ther was no evidence tending to criminate him
Edward Rhodus was at once re-arrested on a

3" St. Andrews Church was quite crowded
on Thursday evening by friends and others, de
sirous of being present at the marriage of Mr
Wrav Tavlor, the well-known organist of the
church, and 5Iiss Oowninglerg. The Rt. Rev
the P.ishon of Honolulu omciatecl at the cere

the choristers were in attendance to sing at the
wedding of their respected choir-master but
unluckily they mislook the time and kept 'the
wedding party standing in silent meditation for
more than ten minutes. The bride was given
away by Mr. Cartwright and was attended by
Miss Josephine Perry. Miss Wilder and Miss

Ahctmaxc Catholic School. On Tuesday
June 21st. the examinations of the pupils of the
Ahuimauu Institute were held, and passed
oft' in a very creditable manner, considering the
tender ages of the scholars. The children acquit
ted themselves very well in all the exercises of
spelling, leading, mental arithmetic, geography
Ate. and reflected great credit on their teachers.
The intervals between the several exercises were
filled by singing, recitations, and a dialogue
entitled " The Merchant of Venice." This piece
was very well rendered, considering that the
young " Thespians" were from seven years old
upwards. After the examinations were over the
invited guests sat down and partook of a boun
teous repast which was spread before them and
after refreshing the inner man went to their
several homes well satisfied that the exertions of
the Rev. gentlemen who have the institution in
charge ; Revs. Sylvester Stappers and Fabian
Schausten: had been well applied during the past
A deplorable accident occurred at Kaueohe
on Thursday afternoon. Two children, named
Emily and Ferdinand Perrier, aged respectively
13 and 11 years, went to bathe in the Kaueohe
stream, and appear to have got into a pool of
great depth and were there drowned together, no
one hearing any cries from them. The children
with their parents, only arrived here from New
York a couple of weeks ago. They are relatives
f Mr. C. Larisch. of Kaueohe, and it was he
who, whilst searching for the missing children,
discovered thjir clothes on the bank of the
stream and got two Hawaiians to dive in search
of the bodies. Kanaimaka was the first to dive,
md finding that the bodies were there, was
frightened and got Kcaloha to go in and bring
them to the surface. There were no marks on
c ither body showing hurt of any kind, and at
the inquest held bv the Coroner, Mr. J. L.
Kaulukou, a verdict of accidental death by
drowning was given.
l -p' On Tuesday evening, the 21st inst., a
large company assembled at the residence of
Mrs. J. H. Coney, " Holaiii Pa," to witness the

Cricket. A cricket match was played last
Saturday, in which five of the officers of H. B.
M. S. Thetis took part. Unfortunately some of
the cricketers on loard the 7ifi". were not well
enough to join in the game, and some of the best
members of the H. C. C. Eleven were absent,
owing to prior engagements. Two teams, of ten
each, were all that could lie mustered. Four of
the II. C. C. with Starkey joined the five from
the Thetis under the Captainship of Lieut. Pelly.
Perry was Captain of the other team which was
drawn from both first and second Elevens of the
Club. The play was not up to the mark, show
ing lack of practice on both sides, especially in
the field. Perry having won the toss sent the
visitors to the wickets, their defence of which
only resulted in a score of 31. The innings of
the II. C. C. team was also concluded for a small
score made up thus: Purvis, 23; Lycett, C; the
rest of the team, 0; extras, 12; total 47. When the
Thetis men went in again two wickets fell in
the first over, but something of a stand was af
terwards made, Starkey scoring 17 and Thain
8, and a total of 41 was put together. This left
the II. C. C. only 23 to make to win, but as the
hour was late, only one or two overs were played,
leaving the game drawn. From the display
made on this occasion, it is evident that our
local cricketers had been neglecting practice.
The expected arrival of the Triumph has, how
ever, stirred them up. Practice has been re
sumed by the more zealous, and a match be
tween the Seniors and Juniors of the Club is to
be played this afternoon. Front the unreliable
character of the riehling last Saturday, it is evi-
dent that something more than batting practice
is needed. A meetin" of the Committee of the

of improvement, and Mr. T. Lishman was depu

"IF On Monday afternoon, a little boy of
three years and f"ur months of age named Ka-
malnkukui was found drowned near Smith's
bridge, in the Makaho stream. His mother, a
woman named Puhi. savs that he wandered

her because he was in the habit of straying by

Ckliukation- or thk Fourth. Last Tueselay
t-vemug a vcrv respectable gathering of voung
men in commercial callings in Honolulu met in
the Parlors of Pacific Hose Co. No. 1, to make
arrangements for celebrating the anniversary of
the Independence of the United States of Amer
ica. A permanent committee were appointed to
carry out the day's fesiiv ities and it was decided
that the yo-mg men should turn out in fantastic
style early i i the day, have a round of salutes
fired from Punchbowl batterv, decorate the
principal strci-t crossings, and at noon assemble
at the Hawaiian Hotel Grounds, where an oration
will be delivered, the refilling of the Declaration
of Independence with patriotic singing aiul
music by the Haw aiian Band. This is about the
Programme, but in order to make the day a gen
uine success it is necessary that our merchants
and eitiens be liberal in their subscriptions and
help to' make the daylong remembered by our
commumtv. The voung men on the committee
will visit all patriotic citizens in a few days with
their subscription lists. Their names are Henry
Hcbbard. Geo C. Stratcmeyer, E. A. Williams,

The old adage, " making a big hubbub about
nothing." is well applied to the following case
The owners and drivers of horse-flesh, ami the
sporting fraternity generally, have been continu
ally attacked by the (supposed) owner of a
certain trotting gelding named " George Treat."
Tuns this individual has made these owners of
stock much scared by his importunities to
them to make up a match. In fact, so uneasy
did he make them about "George Treat's
record being 2.2., and what he could accom
plish, that lurfmeu concluded that even Flora
Temple in a match " go as you please," would
have no show with this steed on the course.
But now it appears wheu a certain horse owner
finally concluded, not without hesitation after all
he had heard, to suggest a trot, the challenger
desires to dictate terms for a race of the most
absurd character, demanding that his horse shall
have the advautage of a professional driver, but
that any opponent shall be driven by tin ama
teur. Challenged as to his inconsistency he at
once acknowledged that he meant "to take care
of his pocket " and was not ready for anything
but a "safe thing.'" Yet the horse which was
to be matched against "George Treat" had
never maile a better record than 2:34. Blow and
bounce may sometimes carry the day, but when
they end in a " fizzle of this sort, they make
those who imlulge in them look very mean.
The owner of the fast Trotting gelding Thos. U. feeliug
highly elated over bis gains on tlie 11th June, concluded
this week to tukt! advantage of tho well known fact that
the horse George Treat is out f condition, lie according
ly went to the owner of aforesaid horse aud offered to
match liiui, the latter politely informed him of his
horse's condition, but at the same time offered to
match him, owners to drive. This he could not do as
it was no dead thing for him. The owner of Thos. II.
then went on to say that he would inform everybody that
he had made G. Treat take water. Xow these facts are
simply announced to show the true state of affairs.

To the Blltor ( the Pacific Commercial Advertisir:'
Kohala, June 17th, 1881.
I have read with much pleasure the announce
ment in your paper of the jolly times expected
on the 11th. The day mentioned is certainly
now passed, and its experiences are now merely
historic. We too, in Kohala, had a jolly time
on the 11th inst., and to begin, in the first place
I must tell you of the public meeting held in the
Court House some weeks ago. The meeting was
called for the purpose of considering the most
suitable way of enjoying " Kamehameha Daj."
Mr. G. F. Holmes was called to the chair, Mr.
Brodie choosen secretary ; by vote of those
present it was decided to celebrate the elay by
horse races aud athletic sports. A committee
of finance, consisting of F. Leslie, Jas. Button,
Sr., Thos. Hayselden, Wm. White and Judge
Kaahookauu were nominated and elected. A
further meeting was held the following week Mr.
Thos. J. Hayselden in the chair, this meeting
was very largely attended and those present
manifested how interested they were in the fit
celebration of the elay which commemorates the
birth of the conqueror of this island Kingdom,
Kamehameha 1st. The committee on finance
reported progress, and indeed they had made
headway, for I am informed that at this time
they had collected over $300. This gathering of
those interested was adjonrnc-d to meet again on
Thursday 0th. Mr. Hayselden was called upon to
preside. Our finance committee reported the
amount of $40(1. 5(1. Mr. James Reuton, Jr., on
vote tif the meeting, assumed the duties of
treasurer; next order of business was the elec
tion of the various officers to couduct the sports,
I will now give them in their order.
Programme for Kamehameha Day. The
committee of arrangements consisted of the
following gentlemen. Stewards : C. Brewster,
J. T. Downey, D. S. Kahookano, J. Lambert.
Judges : Messrs. Filder, Kaai and Hayselden.
Starters : Messrs. J. lienton, Jr., and C. L.
Hopkins. Clerk of Course : Mr. Ii. U. Atkins.
This national gathering took place on Satur
day last, and was attended with a success which
under the circumstances did credit alike to the
supporters of the meeting, and those who were
more immediately connected with its manage
ment. The insufficiency of our Police force was
something to be regretted; really they were worse
than none at all, and had it not been for the .
effort of the officers of the meeting, coupled with j
the executive ability of one or two of the consta- j
bles we might have had to record (what is not j
unusual nt race meetings) many acts of rowdy
ism and fighting on the occasion. However there ;
is nothing to record but one or two quarrels .
amongst the Hawaiians, for which, without
doubt, we are indebted to King Alcohol. The

j beautifully tine, cooled by tlio reiresning . r.

dreds, nor was there any disappointment in
this respect, on the contrary, we were surprised
to see so many on the ground. The event had
been very generally discussed for weeks prior to
the 11th, and in Kohala the occasion was made
ft very general holiday. All classes availexl them
selves of the chance of "going to the races,'' and
so we noticed old and young, rich and poor,
everyone and everybody there. A jolly ride of
about 4 miles, part of the way through waving
cane fields, the latter hilf of the drive out
through meadows and past ire lands brought the
pleasure seeker to the very excellent course that
had been laid out and with some expense cleared
of bush and stone. The card contained not less
than 10 events in all of which a number ol
entries had been secured. The first race was
fixed for 10 a. m., and it is but just to remark
here that the dav's snorts were beg'iu with
commendable promptness. The lines of rails on
either side of the course (near the judge "s stand
and booths) were literally packed with those on
foot, in carriages and on horseback, probably
not less than 800 were present.

The valley of Waipio a few mouths ago was
almost inaccessible on account of the intricate
pathway down the fae-e of the Pali aud it was
not uncommon to hear of animals being precip
itated down its almost perpendicular sides to
the vale below. In rainy weatln'r the road was
literally impassible on account of the floods
which made their way down the trail. We can
now with pleasure enjoy the riele down into one
of the most beautiful valleys on the Islands as
Mr. Chas. Williams our Road Supervisor has
had the road put in thorough repairs having wid
ened it, graded it ami placed retlwood culverts
all the way down for the purpose of riming ti
the water. Mr. Jas. Clemtruts has the thanks of
the travelling public for the energetic way he
has pusheel the work forward, and Mr. Williams
will be remembered as the first who has had a
good and passable road laid out in this part of
Mr. Williams in company with Mr. Jas. Clem
ents went to the eastern end of this District yes
terday and in a few mouths we shall undoubtedly
have a cart road from Hilo westward to Waipio
which will be a great boon to the settlers of this
District; Mr. Clements being an old hand at
this business. Yours truly.

Kohala, June 17, 1881.
Thinking that a few lines would not be unac
ceptable to you, seeing that you have not hearel
from me for some weeks, I have concluded to
devote a few leisure moments to the mention of
the several "Jolly Times" we Kohalaans have
had lately, and, to begin at the beginning I
must tell you of the farewell party given by Mr.
and Mrs. D. R. Vida, to Mr. and Mrs. George
C. Williams, on the eve of their departure for
your busy city. The invitations were very numer
ous, and by !S:30 p.m. I counted not less than
seventy guests, amongst whom were easily recog
nizable many of those, who had so very recently
shown their hearty aWet for the retiring manager
of the Kohala Sugar Company, by presenting
him with such very substantial tokens of their
esteem. The lovely night, the delightful ride,
the charming grounds and house of our amiahl e
host and hostess, the feeling one so delights to
experience, that of feeling perfectly at horn e,
was only too pleasurably felt at every turn.
Dancing, with au occasional solo, duet, trio or
quartett, tended to make us feel (supper bein g
announced) that really our evening's enjoyment
had only just begun; the supper, I pray you
spare me a description of. I can only say, how
excellent it was; how lovely the bouquets and
floral decorations. Every one se emed to so per
fectly enjoy the whole friendly "(rood bye"
The society of Ladies connected with the
foreign church here, opened a Bazaar at the
Dramatic Hall last thursday week; the Hall was
well filled. Amongst those who assisted at the
vatrons tables, I noticed Mr-i. Henry Johnson
(this lady is a most indefatigable worker in all
good work) she, with Mrs. Yida was mainly in
strumental in bringing this fair to a successful
(pecuniar-) issue. Mrs. Johnson was assisted by
the minister's wife Mrs. Smith, and Mrs. Hind,
while Miss Wood dispensed cool drinks to the
thirsty multitude. The refreshments were ire
sided over by Mrs. Renton Sr. Mrs. Dyer, Mrs.
Chapin and others, not forgetting Mrs. Vida,
who had provided a table at her own expense,
and was there personally to grace her gift, and
attend to those drawn thither, by the many at
tractions her table preseuted. Some very pretty
children presided at the Bouquet stand and doubt
less winningly seduced many a half dollar from
its hiding place. The selling of works in oil,
crayon, embroidered cushions, fancy slippers, and
many choice pieces of fancy needle work, began
to slacken at about 11 p.m. when the services of
Mr. Hayselden at the ladies stand, and Mr. Vida
at the refreshment tables', were called into re
quisition, and so these gentlemen concluded the
"selling at auction" of the remains of the nice
things, and the sweets, and this joyous gathering
concluded about 12 p.m. with a most satisfactory
balance in the hands of the ladies, they having
netted over $300, and a feeling on the part of
those who attended, that they had had a most
The following night being Thursday we felt it
our duty (socially) to attend a Ball given by the.
" Lehua Club". This institution is really most
commendable in that it aims to promote a feel
ing of common interest and fellowship between
the natives and foreigners. The club enrolls
amongst its members those the most respectable
and deserving f the sympathy and kinelly aloha
of those outside of their circle. The invitations
were issued " a la mode" and a gathering (unus
ually large) graced the spacious Hall of the
" Kohala Hotel". The planters and mill owners
of our district being very largely represented,
amongst whom were noticed Dr. Wight and
Daughters, Mr. and Mrs. D. R. Vida, Dr. L. S.
Thompson, 3Ir. and Mrs. Hayselden, Mess.
Fielder and Brorlie, Mr. and Mrs. Atkins. Danc
ing was kept up till nearly 12 o'clock when
supper being announced, a company of over thirty
couples repaired to the lower hall, and refreshed
themselves, afterwards resuming the " light fan
tastic", which was most pleasantly continued,
and finally ended about 2 a.m.
I have to report the mils all grinding (leaving
out the Kokala Sugar Company they having
finished,) the crop being about i00 tons. Niulii
Mill, Hart k Co., arc doing good work having
shipped to date over 800 tons with about 000
tons more to take off. Halawa mill, Dr. Tisdale,
is nearly through the seasons, work with a crop
that will approximate to 1000 tons. Kapaau
Mill expects to exceed the estimated yield, but
will not finish up for some weeks. Union Mill,
Puehuehu, grinding steadily, cane yielding
moderately. Ii. R. Hind, Hawi Mill, grinding
steadily, will not finish till towards the close of
the year, average yield, so far, above estimate.

With respect to the motives the King of
Hawaii has for taking this tour, they are
two: Firstly io ascertain the most desira
ble class of immigrants io inuuee io me
Sandwich Islands; and, secondly, for the
purpose of refreshing hi recollections of
the travels he made some years since. The
Sandwich Islands over which King Kala
katia ruies are in our opinion, the most de
lightful regions in the Pacific; they form
alerrestiial paradise. The cdmate is au
eternal spring, and the inhabitants are,
physically speaking, the m st beautiful iu
that part of the globe, and decided.y the
most intelligent. Commercially considered
Honolulu, the chief town in the group, is
one of the most important groups In the
Pacific. With San Francisco, Sydney, and
Auckland, it forms the centre of all trade
in that ocean. Despite .ill these advan
tages, the native race is fast passing away,
and it is this mournful fact that lias in
duced the monarch of these Isles to take
this journev and see what is the best class
of people tb encourage to his kingdom.
And as far as our personal knowledge of
the matter goes, we believe that the Portu
guese will stand the best chance of being
invited to nettle In the Sandwich lslunds.
Numbers of them have already become
subjects of His Majesty and with tmlgraiits
fr in Maideira. Americans and linglish,
thev form the bulk of the foreign popula
tion. To speak .'.ndidly the major portion
of the irade- with then islands is in the
hands of the F.nglish and American. The
United States have cast a eovctouH eye on
the' group; but We think that that nation
will never be able to annex the islands as
their importance is too gre.t to allow such
a step be taken.
His Maiestv is said to be well educated.
of exemplary habits, and refined maniurs.

claim to the title of an accomplished gen
tleman. (From the C.lrftml A'.Hn'rf, Ai'lil Mil.)
The object with which the King of (lie
Sandwich Islands has left his dominions
deserves Io he noled as standing by itself iu
the annals of kingdoms. Affording (o (he
St. Jo men's CJiiztitr there have been nations
that have gone in search of a King, but
this is the 'first ease of a Sovereign who has
gone forth to look for a people. The neces
sity which has driven King Kalakaua forth
to visit the nations of Kurope and of Asia
is a singular one. Under the influence of
that mysterious law which decrees that (ho
touch of civilisation shall be fatal Io the
native of Polynesia, (ho Sandwich Island
ers are dwindling away at a rale so rapid
as to threaten their monarch at no distant
date with (he entire disappearance of his
subjects. And so, as I here can not very well
be a kingdom without a resident population,,
nor a constitutional aovei'iinn-nt without
the material to govern, King Kalakaua has
started in quest of a suitable race to supply
the place ot his fast-dying Kanakas. One
prominent sample of the human raco the
King has already considered and rejecled:
lie will md have' any Chinese, the ohjeclion
(o whom is as strong in the Sandwich Is
lands us it is in California, and probably on
the same grounds. It is dear thai no ord
inary emigrants will suit the peculiar needs
of Hawaii. What js wanted is ruther a
community than laboineis an tipper class,
a middle class, and a proletariat till com
plete; such as were the colonies anciently
sent forth by flreeee. In a few years there
will be left only a skeh ton of 'a civilized
system in the Sandwich Islands, with pro
bably nothing surviving out a liall-caste
King, the Yankee members of Parliament,
and a handful of iOngllsh traders and mis
sionaries. Yet in the time of Captain Cook
the Sandwich Is. amis were reckoned to
contain a population of some 300,000 persona.
If it, is a people already exercised in the
parliamentary institutions suitable to a
liall-savage state ol society which Kincr
Kalakaua wants, would it not be worth his
while? to extend hi i visit to our own islands?

have recently been so partisan in character, that
they have attracted a good deal of attention.
