Thursday was unusually light f only two cases,
in one of which tbe defendant did not appear
having left bail 810 which he and the prosecu

assault which the Magistrate valued at $1 fine,
and h like sum for costs. On Friday there was

formed the sole entry on the sheet forfeiting his
bail. At thia rate we shall boou be hearing of

with a poster which read " Be sure, your sin
will find you out" goes on to say, his " sin "
has found him out, and he "roosted" with
officer McKeague the other evening on account
of a "drunk." This statement is an outrage
upon an inoffensive worthy man, who had some
religious texts printed at this office. We have
enquired about. him; and learn that he never
entered the station house on any charge what
ever. There must be some mistake of ideutily;
and we trust that our neighbor will apologize to
the worthy religious bill poster.
fp Singapore and vicinity are rich, from a
naturalist's point of view, in objects of natural
history. We notice some recent contributions
to the Raffles Museum established there, which
indicate the lively character of Singapore's
tipeciineus of natural history; instance the fol
lowing recent contributions, " Dr. Rowel 1, two
snakes, Lieut. Moody, a salt water snake. Mr.
Taylor a cobra de capello, a youug python, and
five snakes' eggs. And Lady Weld contributes,
one cobra de capello." The cobra must be one
of the favorite pets of Singapore. Wo notice
that the tiger skins are cheaper than bullock
hides; yet notwithstanding so many tigers get
skinned, the tigers get pretty even with Singa
pore folks, by carrying off and devouring about
a man a day in the jungle bordering on Singa

to announce the news received per " Australia,"
of the death of a well-known and highly es
teemed Honolulu resident, Capt. Daniel Smith,
who died at Liveruore, California, on the 23rd
of June last. He was a native of Banff, Scot
land, and came to this country from Chili, in
1855. He was for many j'pftrs clerk successively
for Harbor-masters Holdsworth, and Meek; and
when the latter resigned, Capt. Smith became
Harbor-master of Honolulu, which ositioii he
filled with credit and honor for many years. He
was a skilled navigator and mathematician, and
on many occasions his valuable knowledge was
in much demand. We deeply regret the de
parture of this good man and worthy citien,
and offer our sincere condolence to an estimable
lady, his surviving wido w.

e Rev. Dr. Damon preached to a large (and
we hope, attentive) audience, from the text
Prov. XXII, t. C, "Train np a child in the way
he should go, and when he is old he will not
depart from it." -This text, he said, was usually
applied to the training of young children, but
he desired to give it the wider meaning which
undoubtedly Wlonged to it, embracing the
whole period during which the character of a
man or a woman was in course of formation.
In the course of his eloquent and stirring dis
course he made an appeal to the foreign resi
dents here, poiuting out that the higher Chris
tian education of this community was of
paramount importance to them. This sertliou
will, we l.elieve, be printed for circulation, and
we shall be glad if the useful lessons it contains
prove to be the "seed which fell into good ground
and brougth forth fruit some an hundred-fold."
jy Five sailors of the bark Kale were
barged with refusing duty. They were all
Germans, engaged in Bremen, and sent over to
London to complete the crew of the balk. Thry
appear to have got rather tired of things in gen
eral during their long voyage around Cape Horn
to this country, and, perhaps for the sake of a
" sensation," amused themselves a few weeks
ago" by " deposing " the first mate, and refusing
to take any more orders from him. They sub
sequently used threats against the mate's life,
and altogether abstained from work for the rest
of the voyage. To bring them to a sense of
their duties the Magistrate indicted a fine of
$40 each, or H0 days imprisonment on three of
them who were ringleaders, and of $30 or tWl
days imprisonment on the other two. If they
should go to goal instead of paying the fines,
they were to be put on board again at tbe
requisition of the master. If he can get new
men here we should suppose the Captain will
prefar to leave them where they are, in the hope,
uo doubt, that they will become respected citi
zens of the Hawaiian Islands.

gk2? Mr. Henry Macfarlane enters tbe firm of
G. W.Macfarlaue & Co. as ft partner. This is a
young firm fnll of enterprise, and promise of
good success. We remeuilier well the Macfar
lane boys those of this firm when busy
young clerks, some twenty years ago, and later
on, serving Mr. Wm. Aldricb, Gen. Walker and
others. And then they laid a good foundation
of business qualification and character which
now enables them to take position in this com

to notice this new departure in commercial

BT T. F. Mnlliss alias Thos. Adderly, a
carpenter and builder, who has been living on
Hawaii, in the Hamakna and Waiuiea districts,
for the past two or three years, came to town
lately, procured ft passport in the name of Thos.
Adderly, aud was about to sail away, when Mr.
F. Brown, one of his creditors, had him arrested
and recovered the amount of his debt. Subse
quently thN.mau, calling himself Mulliss on
Hawaii and Adderly in Honolulu, got away on
board the City of New York on her last trip
from this iwrt to the Coast; and now we regret
to learn from some natives of Wtiipio arrived in
town, that they had entrusted to his care about
$700 in cash, with which to purchase lumber for
houses, which he had agreed to build for them.
We hope this notice may reach the rascal in his
iy The subject of the Rev. Dr. Damon's
address to tbe congregation of Fort St. Church
on Sunday evening last, is one which especially
demands the consideration of the white popula
tion of these islands. It is one on which they
will necessarily have to lead the way in the
future ii" they have done iu the past. The
"higher Christian education" of the people,
both native and foreign, is, iu our opinion,
paramount in its importance over every other
question of the day. All the political, party,
and personal questions, to which we are accus
tomed to give so much attention, which form
the subject of our ever' day talk, and, because
perhaps of our immediate personal interest in
them, 1 c m large liefore us as the prominent
matters of to-day, are of paltry moment com
pared with this. What sort of men our sons
are to lieeoine, what sort of a race of native
Ilawaiians the up-comiug generation is to be
associated with, what stamp of public opinion
on questions of social morality is to reign here
after we are gone ; if any thing is of first impor
tance, if anything should command our earnest
attention, if anything should band us together
for united work and open our pockets for united
giving, these ate the things. We are glad to
know that the discourse which has evoked these
remarks is to be printed " extenso. When it is
published we bball have more to say upon its
1 Rifle Shootinu. Last Saturday afternoon a
r-union of the old rifle shots of differing na
tionalities, occurred at Kalibi farm, where
preparations had leen made by our well known
caterer Joseph Antone, late steward of the
Hawaiian Ilot'-l, for the internal comforts inci
dental to the occasion. By kind consent of nis
Excellency the Governor, the rifles used were
tbe " Springfield" government arm ; and it will
1 doubtless gratifying to His Excellency's
patronage to note the fact that the scores made,
(absolutely without previous practice or know
lodge of the weapon, ) are considerably above
ordinary average. In particular the total of Mr.
Bismark, fi3, covering an average of upwards of 4
per shot, is wonderfully good ; while tbe total of
McClellan of 23 in the last match gave the remark
able result of 4 bulls-eye and a "3." The
other scores were very favorable, the wind being
strong down the range. The first match resulted
in a tie, the total scores being 77 on each side.

The King's Tour Bound the "World.
By the arrival of the ''Australia," on
Sunday evening, the 10th inst., with San
Fraueiico papers up to the 3d inst., we have
interesting news relating to His Majesty
the King abroad and we gather from our
correspondence and exchanges, the follow
Drparlare from Bangkok.
On the morning of May lt, an hour he
fore leaving the .Siamese capital,, whore
King Kalakaua had received such distin
guished royal courtesy; His Majesty assist
ed in the production of a ?ouvenir for the es
pecial gratification of hi$ royal Siamese
host. King Kalakaua sat for his photo
graph. Hi Majesty was provided with a
chair of state in front of the grand entrance
to the royal palace; with Prince Kolokana,
the Prime Minister on one hand; and the
Prince, the Siamese King's uncle on the
other,- and with other officials forming a
group, and all dressed in splendid costumes.
After the sitting His Hawaiian Majesty
bid an affectionate farewell to his royal
brother of Siam. The King's guard of the
palace, and a regiment of infantry, escorted
as a guard of honor King Kalakaua to the
waterside. A superb barge manned by '24
uniformed oarsmen, was read to receive
the royal traveller, and after a pull of 1"
minutes landed the King and suite on the
steamer Bangkok. The Hawaiian royal
standard was hoisted at the main; the
troops on shore fired a salute; and the mul
titudes of hospitable Siamese gave prolong
ed, and rousing cheers, as our royal
travelling party steamed away down the
Menam river. Near the bar of the river is
a fort, which pealed forth a royal salute, a
the Hawaiian standard floated past; and
several foreign ships of war, and mer
chantmen in the vicinity had dressed ship,
and their huge throated guns rolled forth
salvos In honor of Hawaii's King, the roar
which went booming over the sacred waters
of the Menam.
King Kalakaua was delighted with
the scenery, observed in coasting along the
Western shore of the Malay Peninsula.
The dense Asiatic jungle comes down to
the water's edge, and borders the sea with
a rich ami variegated fringe of perpetual
verdure. The heat of those latitudes, at
that season, always over 100 was some
what oppressive; but His Majesty dressed
in a light costume of silk anil flannel crape,
enjoyed the ever changing panorama pass
ing before his eyes; and passed the most of
the time on t he deck of the Bangkok, which is
reported to have excellent accommodations,
anil very courteous and able German
officers. We clip from the Overland Straits
Times the particulars of His Majesty's
arrival at Singapore, on the morning of
Arrival of Ilia Mnjealy nl Slugnporr.
The Siamese steamer Jiangkok, flying the
Hawaiian flag, was signalled at Fort Cann
ing flagstaff at 8.30 a. sr. to-day, and about
9.30 came to anchor in the roads. On the
Bangkok steaming past the Kussian squad
ron, the ironclad Minin and the clipper
Hasboynik fired royal salutes. Immediately
on anchoring, Mr. F. A. Swettenham, the
Assistant Colonial Secretary, Lieut. Hunter
Blair, A. D. C, and Mr. If. Herwig, the
Hawaiian Consul, boarded the Bangkok to
learn His Majesty's pleasure and to offer
the hospitality of Government House. Mr.
Swetteuham ami Lieut. Blair shortly re
turned ashore with the announcement that
the King preferred to land privately in
about 10 minutes' time. Captain Bradjiery,
the Deputy Master-Attendant, then went
off" to the Bangkok to bring His Majesty
ashore. The hauling down of the Hawaii
an flag from the Bangkok and a royal
salute from Fort Canning announced to the
public that His Majesty had left the Bang
kok. His Majesty, accompanied by the
Hon. W. N. Armstrong, Minister of State,
Col. Judd, Chamberlain, and Ml. Herwig,
the Hawaiian Consul, - landed about a
quarter past 10 a m. at Johnston's Pier,
and then walked down to the Hotel de
l'Europe where he is staying. A large
crowd of natives and Europeans witnessed
His Majesty's landing and manifested a
lively and respectful curiosity. The King
is a handsome, well-built man of imposing
presence, between 40 and 50 years of age,
and is a good Euglish scholar, having, we
understand, been educated by an American
missionary resident in Honolulu. The
celerity with which Hi Majesty landed
disarranged the preparations made for his
reception. Thus it was that H. i. tne
Governor's carriage had not arrived, and
the guard of honor of the Buffs with the
Band of the regiment arrived too late. It
was His Majesty's express wish to land
privately, as he did without any ostenta
tion, smoking phteidly aeigar as he walked
to the Hotel de I'Eurone-.. His Majesty was
dressed in plain travelling --cIothes, and
wore a ruth helmet. Thanks to our marine
authorities and the Kling hoatmen7avl"
spared no expense and trouble, Johnston
Pier was most tastefully tlecoratetl wi
palms and evergreen plants, and the lar.
number ol nags, with the Hawaiian n
tional flag on a large pole, added greatly
the general eflect. His Majesty will call
Government House at 4 p. m. to-daj', ai
will leave fo: Calcutta next Thursday.
HIS MAJESTY'S RECEPTION IS SIXOAPOR
On Saturday H. E. the Governor dro
down to town in his four-in-hand, in fu
uniform, and returned the call of H. M. tl
King of the Hawaiian Islands. Afterward
His Majesty and suite drove with His E:
to the reservoir, with which His Majest.
expressed himself highly-pleased. Yesterday
afternoon His Majesty held a reception at
Government House, when many oflicials
and other gentlemen and ladies were pre
sented. Owing to shortness of notice, how
ever, many who wonlu otherwise have at
tended were prevented from doing so. In
the evening His Excellency and Lady Weld
gave a large official dinner in honour of
His Majesty, at which Admiral Aslambegoft
and Prince Torlonia were also present. After
the Queen's health had been proposed iiy
His Majesty, the Governor proitosed that
of King Kalakaua in nearly the following
Ladies and Gentlemen. I rise to propose the
health of His Majesty the. King of the Hawaiian
Islands, and to express the hearty welcome with
which we greet him, loth personally, and a.s tbe
successor of a line of Kings who have done so
much to elevate and advance their people; and
indeed, iu welcoming, not one who is travelling
merely for his personal amusement or informa
tion, but a Prince who is actively engaged in
seeking to promote tbe best interests "of his
Again, we welcome turn, not only as the sov
ereign of a country interesting in itself, interest
ing from tbe brave and intelligent character of
its native race, but which also is interesting to
us owing to the many relations it has had with
England, and the large part that we, in common
with America and France, have had in assuring
its independence, and in promoting tbe great,
and, allowing for circumstances, almost unex
ampled progress it has made since the days of
lour Majesty will, i hope, permit me to adit,
that I myself cherish an especial love for the
Hawaiian Islands and for their inhabitants. I
have floated on their seas in calms and m storms
and seen, hitrh above the clouds, the great round
back of Manna Kea and the sharper outline of
Manna Loa. I have climbed their mountains,
traversed their uplands, dived into their ravines
and fertile vallies, penetrated their forests, and
gazed with almost blinded eyes into the glare of
the craters and lava pits of their volcanoes. I
have also enjoyed the civilization and hospitali
ties of their chief city. But wherever I went,
and under the most varied circumstances, I met
everywhere the same heartiness of good will
amongst all classes and conditions of your Ma
jesty's subjects, and from them I received some
instances of special kindness which will never
leave my memory.
Your Majesty, therefore, will readily believe
that it affords me a very particular pleasure to
have the honor of receiving you as my guest,
and of now proposing your Majesty's health:
and that pleasure i enhanced because your
health and welfare arc so intimately bound up
and closely connected with the welfare of your
country and of your people: and that it should
W so is itself an adilional crown to Royalty.
Ladis and Gentlemen, I call upon you t drink
the health of His Majesty Kalakaua I., King of
the Hawaiian Islands.

them to be seated, entered into conversa

tired. AT THE MASONIC rOIKIE
Lodge Zetland in the East, No. 54S,
Brother H. Cllpperton, Worshipful Master,
was honored last night (11th) by a visit from
King Kalakaua I. of Hawaii. His Majesty
attended the Ijodge at 9 o'clock, accom
panied by Colonel Judd and the Deputy
District Grand Master, and was rcceived at
the door of the Hall by the Office-bearers of
the Grand Lodge, who conducted him
into the interior of the building, where
about sixty members were present.
The third degree in masonry was then
conferred upon Colonel Judd, ami the
Worshipful Masters and the Office-bearers
were complimented by the Kinj; on
the efficient working of the craft oti the
occasion. The members then adjourned
to their Dining Hall, where a cold collation
had been prepared by Brother Emmerson.
The usual Masonic toasts were given on the
occasion, Brother Emmerson being Toast
Master, and performing his duties with a
vigor which seemed greatly to take the
fancy of His Majesty, and the health of his
Majesty was proposed in an appropriate
speech by Mr. Dunlop, D.D.G.M. The
King returned thanks in a pleasant and
affable manner, informing the brethren
that Masonry was established in his king
dom, and that His Majesty took a deep in
terest in all matters connected with the
craft. In his travels, His Majesty visited
several Lodges both in Ameiica and China,
and his experience taught him to form a
high opinion of the institution. After a
few short and effective speeches from R. W.
Brother R. B. Read, past D. D. G. M.. W.
Brother J. I). Vaughan, P. M.f ami Coloner
Judd, the Masons retired from the Eodge
at about 12 o'clock. The Lodge was neatly
decorated for the occasion, ana the arrange
ments, altogether, were highly satisfactory,
and reflected credit on the Lodge. Over

The city and emporium of Singapore
was founded by Sir Stamford Raffles in
1S19. At that time the site of the city,
and the small island upon which it is
situated, were almost uninhabited, and
there were only eleven Malay fishermen's
huts on the island, which was covered with
a dense forest and jungle, the covert of nu
merous wild beasts, especially tigers. There
hail been in ancient times a somewhat fa
mous Hindoo city on this island, called
Singa Pura, or the city of the Lion; but it
was utterly destroyed in the course of des
tructive wars,and the island was abandoned
for centuries, as a complete desert. At the
period mentioned it was ceded to the Brit
ish Government for.a small sum of money,
by. the Sultan of Johore. No sooner had a
spot been cleared on shore for a storehouse,
and the British standard hoisted, when
" "oples of the surrounding island be

has been rapid and steady; so that

RECEPTION BY THE SULTAN OF JOHORE.
During the stay at Singapore, His Ma
jesty received some distinguished royal
courtesy at the hands of the Sultan, or
Maharajah of Johore, whose palace is dis
tant forty miles from Singapore. His
Majesty the King having accepted an invi
tation to visit His Highness the Maharajah,
the .steam launch of the Prince was des
patched to Singapore, and on the
morning of 10th May conveyed the royal
traveller to the Palace of Istana. Our
travellers were astonished and delighted
with the fine architecture and royal ap
pointments of the palace. ThisMalay Prince
is the son of the Sultan who ceiled Singa
ore to the British. The Kingdom of Johore
once comprised a large portion of the
Southern end of the Malay peninsula, and
included the Rhio-Lingga archipelago. On
the death of its Sultan leaving two sons of
equal ambitions and pretentions, the King
dom was divided. The Dutch obtained the
Rhio-Lingga portion, and the British got
Singapore. Johore is now confined to the
mainland of the peninsula, comprising
about 10,000 square miles of territory, and
has over 100,000 inhabitants. The elder
Sultan was an indigent Malay chieftain.
The son who is styled Maharajah
Tuaiiku Kaled, is a wealthy, educated
Prince, who cultivates immense estates of
spice trees, of gambier, or terra japonica,
and rice ; and rents out broad fertile estates
to Europeans ai:d Chinese. The Prince
spoke highly to our travellers of his
Chinese fanners. Sultan Kaled and his
courtiers have marked Hawaiian types of fea
tures, and the Malay Prince was recognized
as presenting a striking likeness to our late j
Prince Leleiohokn. The ladies of the Court
of Istana are spoken of in terms of enthu
siastic eulogy. There are plenty of ugly
looking Malay ieople, but the prU;A'wly
Malay tdock has much beauty of feature
and grace or form, and dazzling fine tinted
complexions. The beauties of Istana were
very elegantly roled ; some with the East
ern silken kabayah, and the delicate
muslin sarong, with diamond and pearl
ornaments in abundance, yet placed In
adornment with very good taste. And some
of the skilled Malay Improvisator?- chau
ted the Malay puntun fong, and brought
forth the dulcet tones of the gamelan for .,
the entertainment of a Malayo-Polyneslan
King. Tiie Sultan, or Maharajah of Johor
a he U now more generally designated,
recognized King Kalakaua as a royal
brother of the same Aslat If stock ; an J as
this Journal ha before stated, this recognl
tion of Asiatic kinship, has hAd u great
Influence in the large recognition of the
Hawaiian King in Asia. The royal Hawaii
an travelling party reeognlred at Johore
many, of the familiar trees and fernt of
home. There wa the hau, the mllo, the
kauiani, the hala, the ohia, the climbing
ie-Ie tf the Hawaiian mountains with
pnla palai, and many familiar shrubs
and plant, ato'ig with the rare man
gostin, tlw diirian, and other choice
Malay fruit, -and we have reason to hope
that one certain result of this royal Journey
will be the introduction into the Hawaiian
archipelago of many new and valuable
plants and fruits.
The King and the Maharajah enjoyed a
a game of billiards together, each alter
nately winning a game.
The beauty and taste of the Palace of
Istana Impressed our travellers very forci
bly and pleasantly. The spacious and lofty
corridors were lined on both aides with
pyramid of rare plant and ferns, amid the
foliage of which were Interspersed
Innumerable statuettes of beautiful figures.
The great banquetting hall presented a
most striking coup (toed; its lofty
ceiling frescoed in azure with fleecy
patches of cloud, was glittering with
innumerable crystal stars, and as a very
small and unuotlceablo pipe terminated In
each one with a small, concealed burner,
and when lit up at night presented a dar
tling artificial sky to the beholder. Por
traits, life-size, of Queen Victoria, and
other European potentates, adorn the walls
of the various royal chambers; costly
pianos, furniture of all kinds of the rarest
European styles, ami superb candelabra
adorn this noble palace, whose hospitalities
were extended so cordially and so royally
to our King, that we are placed under
deep obligation by the Malay Sultan, as we
have been by a Japanese Emperor,a Siam
ese King, nnd u Chinese Viceroy.
Some seventy wealthy aud eminent gen
tlemen of Singapore took part in the grand
banquet given in honor of the visit of King
Kalakaua to the Palace of Istana. His
Majesty returned the following day to
Shigaiore. 1 he Maharajah's two brothers
escorted the King to aud from the bteam
