to leave the iIanl lor steamers last Tties- j

foreign, and have entered and ravaged the

or lack of vigilance; excusable to

in these times of advanced knowledge and
1-erftfted administration ami we touch on
th subject at this" time, to call attention to
Hi." dangers of a farther introduction of the
dread disea-e of leprosy. It is well known
that Norway has a somewhat painful dis
t i n.-t ini ii Kurope, owing to the preval
ence within its borders of this disease
having a large hospital at Bergen, where
over one thousand patients were treated at
a lime ami then it is stated on medical
authority, that probably one thousand
other I'ers were in the country, cared for
in i-olated places by their friends. Norway
fends us some good ieop!e, ami faithful
workers; but we must le careful that -he
d.M-w not send us any lepers.
Anil again, leprosy might come to us
rrom another of our sources of immigra
tion, the I-land of Madeira. According to
a -talement that a pilars in our Kuropean
U tter, in this issue: " Leprosy is found in j -j
I he southern and western parts of the

that between too and oO ersons on the

pleasure of conversing with the venerable Bish

cases that have not yet appeared in a court of

has now devised a tolerably effectual check on
any future attempt at embezzlement. He has
had printed a series of receipt books, with marg
inal stubbs, which being a copy of the receipt,
and thr same leiiig entered in the tax lok,
there will thus be three records of the payment,
i. ne cheeking the other. The collector s receipt
should contain the amount of property and tax
as assessed; and should he not have any discretion
to change assessments. All changes or re

Reception on the . Q. Irwin.
In resjsine to an invitation from their fellow
townsman, Mr. W.G.Irwin. a large nnuiWr of our
merchants and professional men assembled Tester-
day at noon on board the brigantiue " Wni. G
Irwin, "to ttke note of the "points" of this vessel
and partake of a sumptuous Inuch, which had been
prepared for them by their ho.t.. After lunch,
tt lnjiii.' ai-i-areiitlv t.-.k. n lor gr.uihil that every
one had already drank their host"s health with
"tluee times three." Mr. I. C. Jones called on
Mr. Irwin to make a speech, to which that gen
tleman hanpilv responded in the following
" Gentlemen I thank von for vour kind ex
pressions towards nie and my namesake to-day
Six vears ai?o when starting the little office on
Kaahumann Street, with my friend Gen. Walker,
I certainly did not expect to have the honor of
having one of the finest vessels sailing between
San Francisco and here named after me, and I
feel nattered by the compliment which my
friends across the water have paid me, both by
giving this tine brig my name.and the confidence
which they have always bestowed on me. I be
speak for the new clipper two qualities which I
trust will itfver be characteristic of her name
sake, which are to be always full aud fast. I
now propose the health of the owners, Messrs.
John D. Spreckels & Bros., whose enterprise
has built tip one of the finest lines we have ever
had between this place and San Francisco."
The toast was heartily responded to. Cap
Douglas, in response to a call, expressed his
pleasure at meeting those present, and his hope
that the success they had wished his craft might
be realized. Mr. P. C Jones, in his usual
quaint and happv manner, made the following
response to the toast of ' The Opposition Liue."
' Gentlemen So much has been said in praise
of our respected friend Mr. Irwin, that I cau
onlv add that the owners of the vessel now
under our feet should feel proud, and so should
the vessel, to le able to attach so good a name
as Win. G. Irwin to her. It is an honorable
name, and honored among us.his fellow-citizens
I have heard a great deal of talk about luck in
business; now gentlemen I do not believe that
luck is necessary to success, but I do believe
that the sterling qualities jiossessed by our
friend, have doue more towards obtaining suc
cess for him than luck. That he has been
faithful in the performance of the duties im
posed upon him as a business man, that
men are found reposing confideuc in him of
this we desire no better proof than that offered
to us to-day. And I think that, not onlv the
owners of this vessel, but the entira community,
will join with me in expressing the opinion that
" Billy Irwin " well merit his success in busl
ness and any honors that may come upon him
on account of the great kindness aud faithful
ness which he has always displayed towards his
mother and sister. (Continued applause).
j Mr. Irwin. "All I will say is I am very glad
I cave this lunch." Mr. Ilenrv Macfjo-lane be
ing next called upon, said he was nattered to
think his old schoolmate and playmate had ar
rived at the position he had. The youth of the
town should look up to him as an example.
He did he wished to get a rich backer too. Mr.
Macfarlane concluded by proposing the health
of Mr. Clans Spreckels. and the compauy in
response coupled the names of Mr. Spreckels'
sous with the toust, and declared them to be
"jolly good fellows," with the usual musical
honors. Mr. A. S. Hartwell then responded to
a call, and said that they had been wanting
capital to come to the islands, and now that
they had got it, they talked of being afraid that
it would monopolize everything, but he nad no
such fears. In this place we were always hear
ing talcs ot someoonv, irat it was a lair state
ment to make of their friend Irwin that they
had never heard a word against him. His only
fault was he did not run much to the lawyers.
Capt. Mist was then called upon, and said they
had heard many humorous things and not a
few that were true, and he laughed with them at
the one and thoroughly endorsed the latter. He
remembered Mr. Irwin's family and their kind,
ness and hospitality since the days when he
first set foot here, and he honestly wished him
and the vessel success. Capt. Fuller said he
was the senior Captain in the trade, which he
entered as a boy, and had made 135 voyages
lietween San Francisco and the Islands. He
had, in those days, never had a vessel like the
Irwin; indeed, lie had no hesitation in saying
that she was a beauty. Shortly after the com
pany dispersed, pleased alike with the vessel
they had visited, her Captain and officers, and
with their hospitable host and the pleasant
meeting he had caused them to enjoy. We must
add that the vessel, both below and aloft, was
decorated in a manner that reflected credit on
Capt. and Mrs. Douglas, and that all present
were indebted to Mr. Win. Giffard, and Messrs.
Whitney & Eldridge, employees of the firm
of Wm. G. Irwin i Co., for their assiduous
endeavors to make every one feel at home.

EV Mrs. Turner (Miss Mary Cooke Mon
t;jgno) continues to win golden opinions and
golden prizes in Sydney. It is said that " the
success of the Montague-Turner English Opera
Company's season in Sydney has scarcely any
parallel in tne History oi opera in inese colo
nies." "Their career has been an unvarying
run of successes," and we quote one incident at
" Between the operas a presentation was made
upon the stage to Miss Montague, in the pre
sence of a number ot citizens, and tne members
of the company. Mr. T.M. Slattery, M. L. A.,
presented Miss Montague with a valuable
diamond-studded locket, and gold necklace,
which he stated was offered as a token of the
admiration she had won from a number of
citizens by her undoubted artistic excellence,
and as some return for the pleasure she and her
talented husband (Mr. Turner) and the members
of her company, had afforded the lovers of music
during the past few months. (Applause.) Mr.
Slattery referred iu neat eulogistic terms to the
merits of Miss Montague as an operatic artist in
a varied range of characters, whether as Arline
or Leonora, Elvira or Marguerite, Maritana or
Martha. She had often had to play the part of
a queen, but in every character she had under
taken she had proved herself iu the kingdom of
high art a veritable queen of song. (Prolonged
applause.) Mr. Slattery then presented Miss
Montague with a highly complimentary address
printed on satin, and bearing the names of
Messrs. W. Neill (manager of the City Bank),
Nicholson (Nicholson and Co.), Jones (D.Jones
and Co.), aud several other well-known citizens.
Miss Montague in replying, said: "To you Mr.
Slattery, to the other gentlemen associated with
you in the moverient. to the audience, and to
I he musical public of Sydney, I have simply to
say thank you." Miss Montague then retired
amid enthusiastic cheering." Sydney Bulletin.
We are glad to give publicity to these triumphs
of an accomplished lady aud artist, and make
them known to a wide circle of friends in her natal
land and home where she is so warmly remembered.

pnlatiou are, and how thoroughly both the facts
and the theories symbolized by the American
flag are respected throughout the world.
According to an old American custom, a bur
lesque procession of ' Ancient and Honorable
citizens," metamorphosed into "Antiques and
Horribles " turned out at an early hour and
made a progress through the principal streets of
the city, lasting from before seven to nearly nine
o'clock in the morning. This procession was
very creditable to those who participated in it
considering how hurriedly it was got up.
At 10 a. m. the " Exercices " with which
Americans are familiar as part of the inevitable
programme on the 4th of July were indulged in
in the erounds of the Hawaiian Hotel. The
North-easter with its freqtient showers subsided
somewhat, in deference to the occasion, soon
after the opening of the proceedings. In spite
of the weather quite a crowd of both aex.es had
assembled, and the programme of the occasion
was followed with enthusiastic attention, and all
its best points were applauded vociforotisly.
Gen"l Comly called Dr. McGrew to the chair,
adding that in consequence of the painful event
which had just occured (the death of the Chief
Justice) he felt that whilst the public exercises
which had been arrauged might properly pro
ceed, he did not think that the Reception he had
announced would now be in place.
Dr. McGrew, on taking the chair, referred in
a few appropriate remarks, whilst acknowledg
ing the compliment paid to him by the young
men who had got up the demonstration, to
the fact that it was on their youug men that the
hopes of Americans as to the future of their
country were natnrallv centered.
The Royal Hawaiian Band was in attendance
and occupied the succeeding interval with some
well chosen music. Mr. Miller, dressed in the
costume of a century ago, read the Declaration of
Independence. Mr. Hamden then sang the
Star opaugled Banuer " in a way which se
cured well merited applause.
The Oration of the Day was delivered by Mr
Sandford B. Dole. We regret that pressure on
our space prevents our giving more than an out
line of his speech. He said that the discipline
of the late Civil War had been favorable to the
development of national character. The dogma
of equal rights set forth on the document just
read was a lesson Americans had still to learn.
The question whether the central government is
supreme over those of the States or not was also
still unsettled, but the dispute in regard to it
would be settled eventually in the Leislatore,
aud not in the field. But if internal policy were
not yet settled, the United States had set an exam
ple to the world in her external policy. Her acqui
sitions of territory, even when some of them
might have" been claimied as results of conquest,
were made by purchase, and some of the gravest
disputes that ever exercised the diplomacy of
great Powers had been settled by Arbitration.
So it was found that at the end of a century of
growth, instead of being still a learner, she was a
teacher of nations in the science of government
Prophecies had been indulged in that as the
nation grew, it would become too unwieldy to
hold together, but he thought past history war
ranted the conclusion that America would " con
tinue indefinitely to increase in justice and in
strength." It was fit thet this kingdom should,
as was its wont, rejoice in the prosperity of its
great neighbor, bound to them by alliances
which guaranteed Hawaiian Independence. Let
them remember and hold fast the key hote of
America's success the words of the plough
man singei " a man s a man for a that.
Rally rouud the flag " was then sung by
Mr. W. W. Hall v and Mr. P. C. Jones followed
with what the programme very suitably called
" appropriate remarks." With old Captain Ben
Snow he could say " I thank God every 4th of
Julj' that I am an American, every month that I
belong to Massachusetts, and every day that I
was born in Boston. ' ' He believed in being patri
otic and in venting their patriotism on this day
above all others. America was the first to en
courage Hawaiian Independence. She had
given them a treaty which poured wealth into the
land. It was her policy to keep these Islands
independent so long as thejT were capable of
self-government. Mr. Jones was repeatedly in
terrupted by loud applause.
Other songs and music by the Band completed
the programme, and the assembled company de
parted about 12 o'clock.
Among the decorations by private citizens
hailing from the Great Republic, nothing out of
the ordinary run was to be noted, but the Ar
rangements Committee erected a trophy at the
junction of Fort aud Hotel Streets, which de
serves a description. This was a tower forty
feet high, surmounted by a rlag-pole carrying a
huge banner. On this, in the midst of the
Stars and Stripes " was a portrait of Gen'l
Washington in an oval, with an eagle hovering
over it. The tower was in three stories, a base
ment of oft square and 6ft high, and two stories
each of 12ft and of diminishing diameter. Allegor
ical pictures, representing Liberty, Justice, Com
merce aud Defence, were fixed about 14ft from
the ground, one on each side of the tower.
Stays of rope covered with greenery connected
the tower with the four corners of the streets,
and on those were hung alternate'y oval shields,
each bearing the name of a President of the
United States, (20 in all) and the flags of other
nations. The top of the tower was ornamented
by a scolloped drapery with on each side shields
bearing the colors of the States.
Soon after daybreak in the morning all the
bells in the town were set ringing; and salutes
were fired from the battery at Kakaako, at day
break, at noon and at sunset.

Races at Kapiolani Park.
On thk Foceth or Jtly.
The races at the Park on the " Fourth." under
same admirable management as was the case on
the 11th June, were another grand success. Sel
dom has Honolulu teen viewed under a gayer or
more,, attractive aspect than it was on Monday
Immediately fu?rjlhe interesting exercises at
the Hotel grounds were concluded, the sporting
portion of the community, eagerly repaired to
their luncheon prior to the start for the Park,
it is impossible that a whole community should
take the same delight in any particnlur recrea
tion, as the tendency of the present day i for
everyone to gratify his own peculiar tastes and
inclinations, and while a large portion devoted it
self to the tnrf, the remainder preferred spending
their time in more congenial ways. This special
meeting was looked forward to with great inter
eat by all the sporting men, owrrtj to the
match between " General Garfield " and " Gwi-
eral Hancock " which had been postponed from
11th Jun.e and the stakes increased to Ike respect
able sum of $500 aside. Both owners felt
equally sanguina of carrying off the palm and
prize of the two-year-old, and great care had
been displayed in tbe training of these animals.
Mr. T. McClellan had charge of Garfield, whilst
the splendid condition of Hancock was due to
the exertions of Mr. II. B. Hales. Tbe resfilt
proved that the first named is an adept in tne art
of training for a running, as well as a champion
in handling'the reins of a trotting horse. He also
traiued Mark Twain " on the present occasion
and was rewarded by distancing his competitor
and former rival, Romping Girl, iu the first heat
of a mile and repeat. However, he has not suc
ceeded in breaking Mark of his fractious ways
prior to the start of a race, which were shown on
this occasion to a higher degree than usual
When being led up to the post, Mark plunged so
violently as to throw Mr. McClellan on his back
He barely escaped, a very serious accident get
tins off with only a bruised hand. The feather
weight on Mark Twain stuck to him ' like a
leech " and with the assistance of another jowcr-
ful groom, he managed to face the starter. In
this match it is but fair to state that Mark
Tvcain carried only 87 lbs, whilst Romping Girl
had 103 lbs up. A half mile dash letween Sally
Black aud Hannah for $50 aside, was a foregone
conclusion for the former, who won "hands
down " in 53 seconds. The fourth aud last event
was a mile dash by Kate Lee and Stranger, won
by the latter.
Speculation has been somewhat spirited in re
gard to the colts, Hancock being selected for
first choice at slight odds, which gradually in
creased 2 to 1 before the start. Each party
struck to his own horse from the time the match
was made, and a large amount of money was
invested in pools and betting in addition to the
stakes. Below are the details of the racing :

Garfield had the rails, and was further favour
ed by a lead of a length and a half at the start.
At the quarter post he had increased the gap to
three lengths. The same order was maintained
to the finish. Garfield won in a canter by half a
distance. Hancock was severely punished whilst
coming np the straight, but all to no purpose.

The betting was 2 to 1 on Mark Twain. Great
difficulty was encountered in bringing Mark to
face the starter. He plunged violently, and after
throwing his trainer. T. McClellan, he was nil
but gone on his account, when he was cleverly
secured and held by Mr. C. Wilson. A bad
start was effected, Romping Girl losiug a second
and a half at the word " go." Mark literally ran
away with his diminutive rider, increasing his
long lead perceptibly at every strike. He dis
tanced the mure, and therefore won tbe race iu a
single heat. Time 1 in. 49 sec.

Nearly all the Siamese people, male and
female, blacken their teeth. And all the women
cut their hair short like the men; and as the cos-
tume, a jacket, and a fold of cloth very much
like the style of the ancient Hawaiian pa-u, is
worn by both sexes, and as the men show no
beards, it is rather difficult fo decide, according
to external appearances, upon the sex of an indi

His Excelleucv. W. N. Ahmhtbono. then rose
and proposed t' health of the -Governor. He
said: Your I' ty and gentlemen, 1 am abont
to propose the health of His Excellency the
Governor, but before doing ho, permit me to say
a word. His Majesty has said that he stands
for the first time on the soil of a British Colony.
I must qualify the statement if he will permit
me. In IS 13 the British commander of a sloop
of-war demanded, nud received, the cession of
the Hawaiian Kingdom to the Government of
Great Britain, and the Islands became BritUh
soil, over which floated the British flag. Ilia
Majesty then stood, while a child, on British
soil; shortly afterwards, however, in obedience
to the order of the Admiral commanding the
squadron, the Hawaiian flag was raised by tbe
same commander, and tbe British flair hauled
down. I mention this incident to show vou
that at one time His Majesty lived on English
soil, but more especially to show you that the
conduct of a high British officer was dictated
by a sense of justice and right (loud cheers).
Allow me to soy that the, colonial system of
(treat Britain deeply concerns the Hawaiian
Kingdom. If you leave this Colony, and navi
gate dne eastward, you touch these Islands on
the way to the Great Republic of North America.
starting again from this f'olony, if yon move
towards the many Republics and nations of
South America, you will touch these islands on
the way. Moving from the Australian conti
nent towards the Great Republic of North
America, these islands are directly in the liue
! of navigation. Thus the cecuraphical position
of these islands becomes supremely important
