All small communities are more or lest
famous for the eu-e and peed with which
fabricated stories circulate amongst them.
To this rule Honolulu is no exception ;
the town ha, indeed, rather a bud pre
eminence in thi resect. Human nature
being pretty much the same every where, we
cannot attribute tin J characteristic feature
of small communities to any special de
velopment of the love of untruth among
them. It is simply that the love of gossip
js more strongly developed in a place where
everyone is more or less known to everyone
else, and where there is very iittle el-e in
th? way of amusement to be indulge! iu.
than it is where larger and bu-ier popula
tions are gathered together. As everything
that iu heard or ween by anyone quickly be- j
comes a topic of conversation where- s i
much tattling is constantly ging on, .so i
each man's fancies tret afloat al-o, and as t
that the planters as a body have taken up
the matter with some interest, show
ing a de-ire to extend the knowledge of the
varieties of production and capabilities of
the Islands, and not solely for the purpose
of extending their market. In addition to
the large sugar exhibit that will be sent by
the Planters' Labor and Supply Company
with much valuable information and sta
tistics, there will also be sent blocks of the
building stone from the quarries in this isl
and and Kau, living and pressed specimens
of our erns, notably the pulu, which is an
important artie'e of commerce, some of the
poisonous and medical roots such as the
Auhuhu, Pooola, I'opolo coffee, tobacco
and arroroot, which are not cultivated
to any great extent the forest trees Koa,
Ohia, Naia or Oaka and others that are
valuable fr furniture the Sumac which
grows wild in large quantities on Hawaii
and is much prized for tanning purposes.
Useful exhibits of another kind are th pre
served tamarind, guava, banana and taro;
photographs of the country and its native
inhabitants, the latter of which will be of
scientific interest. Many more things
miht be mentioned, but we think the

The Pesaimist-
Our daily contemporary a week ago
led off with an editorial on Honolulu's
health. The writer presents a mot
gloomy picture of what is likely to be the
sanitary condition of the town in a short
time unless the trees are cut down. We
agree with him in thinking that there is
too much shade in the city, but we are al-o
of the opinion that he has overshot the
mark and drawn too largely ou'his imagin
ation. We can make allowance for his
having taken a walk up the slope of Punch
Bowl, a feat that is calculated to cast a
gloom over the most elastic temperament,
but to look down upon the town from that
elevated and arid region, and muse like a
tual sign of -.vlTie, at once n.he.I to give
thealaim. Mr. Hugh Mclntyre and Cap
tain Mdnteus had the first huse attached.
The Government have seut a compliment
ary letter to the Captain of the U. S. S.
Essex, thanking him for th voluntary as
sistance that was proffered in saviug prop
erty and keeping order.
No clue has been discovered as to the
cause of this destruction of valuable prop
erty, which, it i admitted ou all sides,
would have been reduced to a minimum
had there been the usual water supply.
While regretting that such should be tba
case, we would meution that it has been
stated by many spectators, that more build
ings would have been burned but for the
large tamarind and mango trees in the
neighborhood. This naturally causes one to
second Dante over the embowered citv at
his feet as if it was an Inferno, is being too wonder if it would not be a good luea, in
despondent. He nortravs a scene like the ttr tin situations where valuable property

following: A mass of dense foliage covering
the city, acting as an artificial barrier
against th trade winds, and preventing the
sun's rays from acting upon the festering
and putrifying animal and vegetable mat
ter about the city. These trees tend to
keep the soil moist and damp, constantly
exhaling mephitic vapors from decaying
matter. At 6 A. M. there is, he says, a
damp, deadly mist hanging over the city
consisting of poisonous vapors exhaled dur
ing the night. This is about 30 feet thick.
At the bridge at King street, when the tide
is out, there is a fetid smell worse than a
bone or rag factory, or chemical works, suf
ficeut to poison a nation. Without
knowing just what a "bone" or "rag
iactory" is, we imagine it is some--- amount
thing fearful, and
a smell worse than they exbtne"f
is : . ing erected, to plant numbers of large
and quick-growing trees which would serve
as a thorough break in cases of fire, also as
an object of benuty, to form a shade, and for
sauitary conditions. From the evidence
furnished on this occasion, we think that
this idea, if systematically carried out, but
not o any excees, i- deserving of some consideration.

''Blesed are the pure in heirt, for they
shall see God." The example of Christ,
His unpretentious humility, combined with
His simple, firm, inimacu'ate life aud char
acter are without a parallel, for moral
beauty aud attractive purity, in all the an
nals of the world. There is nothing more
pleasant and imprtssive; nothing more ele
vating aud at the same time consoling to
the heart and soul of man than a contem
plation of the life and crucifixion of Jesus.
His career was truly an exampliflcation of
His teachings. Every 'act of His was tem
pered with loviug-kiuduess and mercy. No
vindictive feeling, no arrogance. 110 vain
braggadocia ever marred one of his utter
ances or influenced his couduct iu a single
instance. As the champion of righteous
ness he denounced sin per e, but siuuers
he Vather pitied and loved, because he was
commissioned by the Almighty especially
to redeem the lost. How meek, how gener
ous, how full of love and infinite tenderness
must have been the 9oul of one, who coul3

a miserable failure; the blacks rejected his
counsel aud voted pretty solidly iu support
of a white administration of public affairs.
So he then indulged in lengthened screeds
and lengthened political diatribes in the
Nineteenth Century Journal. He therein
set forth that mistakeu views had been en
tertained in regard to the value of the col
ored vote, and sneeringly spoke of the
mental and moral dethiieucy of the colored
race as affording no basis for a valuable po
litical constituency in aid of the political
views which he represented. Iu other
words, after courting the colored inau aud
finding he could not be made to ferve his
purpose, lie kicked him, and in the same
tpirit he essays to kick the native brown
man of these islands. The men of his po
litical views mainly contributed to give to
natives the right of suffrage without quali
fication, and now that he wout vote to
suit him, bespeaks of him as "iguoraut qf
institutional government." and tries to iu
cite the white foreign element to drive the
native to the wall. He does his best to pro
mote a revolt by saying that there are many
whites in these islands who wont unite in
revolution, "but who would do splendid
service if a crisis was forced." But we do

not bear to so a leader, who would not

Christ undergoing the agonies of crucifix

from it while walking in ths path which
he has pointed out for us to follow. With

We can afford, to love our enemies and
pray for those who hate us, for Jesus
adopted that course, and will bless us
while we follow it. He banished hate;
even so will we banish it. He taught ths
sublime doctrine of forgiveness aud love
and we will observe its principles forever,
in the face of all calumnies, malice, rancor,

Mr. W. R. Castle uaid that, although nearly
without voice from a cold, yet he did uot wUu
: the occasion to puss without a word from him iu
! tribute to the inruioiy of the depaited. He
felt, aud whs ure that ho echoed only the voice
; of every member of the bar, that ih Mr Uar
: uard'ft death he bud lotd a pcrsoual friend. In
this age, when there is no much uud frequent pec
I ulutiou.wheti every luuil from foreign lauda
i brings accounts of new defalcations aud breaches
' of trust, it becomes uoteworth'y wheu a niau per-
forms his duty faithfully. Mr. Baruard will al
: ways be remembered as a pre-eminently faith
ful man. He hud au iugraiued faithfulness woithy
of emulutou. Much hud been said of Lis
; courtesy. It was oue of his mont marked and
! pleusiug truits, oka .which all those iu the pub
lic service might wtll strive to imitate. Thoss
who had business iu the office of the Clerk of
the Supreme Court were made to feel, in a quiet
aud unobtrusive umuner, thut he, uot the appli
caut, was receiving a tjvM Huch was his
never-fuiiiug m-umr, tveu though suffering
paiu, as he did iu..-t of the time the last few
mouths of his life. It was to be hoped that
these resolutions would be unanimously
adopted, nud he moved thut, therefore, u com
mittee of two be appointed to have them en
grossed, aud next Mouduy morning at the opeu
: ing of the July term present thtm to the Couit,
and move that they be eutered iu full ou th
records of the Court.
' The resolutions were unanimously adopted,
' Mr. Prestpn and Mr. Maheloua being appointed
a committee ou engrossment.
! Mr. Hatch refeired to the genial nature of ths
' deceased aud the pleasure it was to do business
with luiu, Aud stated that all members of the
bar recognized the loss uot ouly of au efficient
i officer, but also of a personal friend,
j Mr. Dole briefly referred to Mr. Barnard's
fidelity aud courtesy.
1 Mr. Associate Justice Austin, iu commenting
upon the value of the deceased, said that they
j could not well replace a man of such worth,
t purity ot character and official ability, aud he
hoped the Government would give some expres
j siou of their feelings ou account of the demise
'. of such au esteemed public servant.
; His Excellency W. M. Gibson, replied sub
! stautially us follows: Although he could not
! fcpeak as a member of the Bar yet a temporary
association therewith miht warrant his joiuiug
iu this tribute to the memory of a good tuau, ths
r lute Chief Clerk of the Supreiae Court, John E.
: Buruard. He hud no opportunity to know Mr.
Buruard as they had known him, as counsellors,
aud had Lurdly ever beeu iu the courts either as
' suitor or one puud, yet he had sufficivut oppor
. tunity ou various occasions to appreciate ths
i worth and faithfuluess of the deceased to ths
full extent that they hud beeu expressed by so
; iuuuy speukcrs before him. Mr. Buruard was
; iu uo seuse a perfuuetoiy oflieial but conscien
tious iu the exercise of his public duties. Mr.
Gibson then referred to au incident, illustrative
of what he said, thut occurred four or five days
before the death of the deceased. It was a mat
ter of some importance that had beeu negle'ted,
viz. to have a document signed aud sealed by
the Chief Ck-ik ut a late hour when all offices
were closed. Having fouud him Iu pleasant
associutiou with his family, engaged, spade in
hand, in the cultivation of his gardeu, aud ex
pressing his regrets at intruding upou him at
such au hour aud under nuch circumstuuees,
Mr. Baruard at once dropped his t-pade deprecat
ing any apology, aud tbterfully aud warmly
said it was his duty, as veil as his pleasure, to
promote the public servile ut any 'hour, so at.
once proceeded to legalize the document rs- '
quired. As oue gentleman (Mr. Castle) Lad
just remarked, he deemed au opportunity to
nerve as a furor conferred upou himself ; there Jhj
