Mr. Ellis reports the sale Monday of four shares of Haiku stock at $375 per share cash, and 10 shares E. O. Hall A Com. Limited, at $125 per share. Dr. S. W.

His services have been engaged bv the board of Health, A bae-ball match was played on Saturday after noon on the parade ground between the Honolulu club and a mixed team.

Miller, at the Hotel, on Saturday evening. The General is a prominent member of the Grand Army of the Ite- ' public, also of the M. O. L. L., U. S. I A telegraphic message was received by the Gov j eminent by the Mariposa, stating that sever.'. Sis I ters of Charitv are about to set out from New York for th j Hawaiian Island i. to engage in the duties of nursiug the sick. They are expected to arrive in September. Owing to the rapid spread of this fearful diseaxe the most rigorous precautions are being taken all over Asia, Europe and America to isolate aud stamp it out as much a possible. The Health au thorities here are on the alert to take every precau tion in Hono lulu. The steamship City of Sydney took on her trip to Australia. 121 ii:ie American nurino sheep, from Vermont.

Mot.day afternoon ou Foster's wharf a uative woman who had been sit titig on a box left a bag containing S20 which was found by a uative man named Kaln-le who immediately inquired for the hfser.

His Majesty went ou board the Mariposa ou Sat urday afternoon for the purpose of thoroughly in specting her.

The position of Clerk of the Supreme Court has been ortered to Mr. V. E. Foster, though he was not one of the applicants. It is probable that Mr. Foster, who is in every respect qualified for the po sition, will accept it if hi application for letters patent of denizanhip are granted by His Majesty. Mr. Foster though he has lived the greater part of his life on these islands, was not born here. A great deal of inconvenience was experienced ou Saturday through the impossibility of purchas ing stamps at any other place than the Post Office, where of course the officials were unusually busy, the necessity of supplying stamps to everybody not ouly increased their labors but also delayed the crowd round the window. Will none of the stores iu different parts of town sell stamp and so con venience the public' A new lake is iiow forming in the crater of Kilau ea about 100 yards from what is known as the new lake. The opening at the top has at the present time, July 31st, au opening of ab.ut six feet iu diameter. On looking di.vvu through this a large mass of li quid hiva is seeu in violent agitation. The top crust is constantly cracking with a uoie like pistol dis charges aud a new feature will soon hi added to this already wonderful place. Hi Majesty gave a luau Monday afternoon at his Waikiki residence out of compliment to Colonel Clau Spreckels, Mrs. Spreckels, Senator Miller, Mrs. Miller, Mr. E. L. Steele, Mrs. Steele, aud sev eral other ladies aud gentlemen who are now in Ho nolulu. Daucing and singing comprised a part of tin-afternoon's amusement and everybody returned to towu surrounded with leis after passing a very pleasant afternoon. The baud was in attendance. Mrs. and Mr. It. W. Laiue gave a birthday party on Saturday at their residence, Nuuanu Avenue, to their sou, it b.;ing the anniversary of his eighth birthday. About 50 young lads and lassies were -present, who enjoyed themelves thoroughly and did ample justice to tht goodies furnished by Mrs. Laiue. Among tin last t-j leavj, apparently with much regret, were th-j gran lchildren of His Excel lency the Premier, who hoped EJdie would have another birthday party soon. Mr. E. L. bita-le tli ) Pr.MiJj.it of the Ovaulc Steamship Company said in hi remarks made at the dinner givan by Hi Mij-sty last wjek that the company hi 1 mi 1 a present to America of SIOJ.OOJ by having their hjvv steamers the Mari posa aud Alain da built in ' the United States in stead of in the United Kingdom where they could have ben built for t'.itt am .tint less than was actually paid. The company only incurred the ad ditional outlay for the purptse of spending the money iu the States where Hawaiian interests were chiefly cantered. ) Honolulu progresse with the rest of the civ ilized world and now possesses two real live dudes who disport themselves languidly through our streets. The following conversation, overheard on Saturday evening, will at once show the high in tel. lectual faculties of this new genus of the human race: First dude, with an embarrassed smile "Say. Augustus. I really lielieve I've broken a ctr st lacing. Have you an extra one with you?" Hecond dude, with au expresion of horror "Real ly! why. Algernon, where could you fix 'it if you hod one? The gyurl are all lookiag at Sa.'yon know." 4V Tlie first uumhar of the liostou Foreign Exhibi tion official Gazette is to hand. It contains num erous official notification- and general instructions for exhibitors and also portrait of the King and Qiiecu of Italy. A each uumlur will vontaiu jor trait of Ujyalty we look for.vard to seeing in a future number those of our Kin aud Qaoen. There is also a lithographic likeuess of J. Jackson Jarves, formerly editor of the PiAynrUiH. It also gives the names of all the Foreign Commissioners, among whom, as representing Hawaii, are Hon. W. M. Gibson, Frank S. Pratt, E.q., Hon. W. C. Parke, E. P. Adams, Esq. Last ear the S. S. Stirling Castle. Captain Mar shall, made the passage from the Shanghai light ship to the LiuJou dojks iu tweuty-nina.days and a half. Tiiis year she h is accomplished the same passage iu 23 days, including stoppage at Singa p re, and 42 hours occupied in passing through the Suez Canal. The Stirliuj C is tie started on her voyage at 12:27 a. M. on t!i3 21th of May carrying 5,350 tons of tea at s pr ton. Sa arrived at Singapore on the afternoon of the 29th Miy, took in I.SjO tons of coal aud proceeded on her voyage the following morning zt 5 o'clock. She arrived in London ou the 21st June, having kept up an av erage rate of spaed of 16 S knots an hour. This wonderful steamer was built on the Clydi last year by Messrs. John Elder A Co., the build ers of the Australia and Zsalandia. Her great speed has been watched with jealous eyes by a wealthy Italian firm, who hive induced Messrs. Thomas Skinner A Son to part with her at a figure considerably above the original cost. Next year will probably produce her rival, in the ahapa of an other Castle, for the purpojj of maintaining the enormously highratea of freight that are paid for the delivery of the first new season's tea at the London market. Rev. W. A. Swan has gone for a trip round Hawaii. Ten bags of mail matter were sent by the Mari posa Tuesday. The value of the freight takeu by the Mariposa was 1.IG,C5'J.14. The dude have departed and once more life in Honolulu is hollow. His Majesty gave a breakfast larty Thursday to meet Mrs. Bright. Mr. S. Parker will make a visit to the Coast in the Mariposa ou her next trip. . Seven hundred and twenty dollars was the total amount collected for the band boys. The S. S. Iwalani called at Kawaihae this trip to land Mr. Samuel Parker and a few other passen gers. Wells, Fargo A Co. 'a letter bag remained open to within fifteen minutes of the departure of the steamer Tuesday. Two instantaneous views of the Mariposa were taken Tuesday by Mr. Williams of Fort street as the vessel was leaving port. Mr. R. A. Macfie went to the Coast Tuesday to see if he could obtain any talent to utilize at the talked of public gardens in Honolulu. When last seen the dude was sheltering ; his lovely complexion with a bright red parasol, his hat being.off to allow the balmy breeze to cool his burning brain. Mr. Nolte, not having been asked to contribute to the Baud fund, sent a box of five hundred cigars on board with his compliments, for the use of Berger and the boys. Glass is evidently cheaper than bricks judging by the number of windows, fifteen, in the new building at the corner of Fort and Merchant streets. A complete account of the receipts and expendi tures of the Hawaiian Treasury from 1st April, 1882, to 1st July, 1883, a period of fifteen months has just been published. Mrs. Bright a sister-in-law of the great English Statesman is now on a visit to Honolulu and stay ing at the Hawaiian Hotel. Mrs. Bright has trav eled extensively in all parts of the world and pur poses next week to visit the volcano of Kilauea. She will return to America early in September. Honolulu has lost its dude but still retains it dandy, who, rejoicing at the departure of his op ponent, appeared on Tuesday afternoon in town and on the wharf most testhetically attired in a green silk coat, dark silk skin tight unmentionables, and a stove pipe hat. If to gain notoriety is the man's, object he certainly succeeds in his endeavors. An American paper says: The engagement of Lieutenant Clover, of the Navy, to Dora Miller, seems to be really so. It has been reported, and denied, more than once, but now there is no deni al. The groom is certainly in clover, for with au attractive aud accomplished bride, he secures a very wealthy wife. These naval officers have a fac ulty of ferreting out the prettiest and the richest prizes afloat. Tho energetic Gazette man hurried down Tues day to the Mariposa with a bundle of his papers. He was rather late but determined to get them on hoard so threw them; unfortunately they missed their nurk aud fell in the water, but were eventu ally hauled in not much the worse for their wet ting. The damage done Pi immaterial as there is nothing readable in the Gazette. A large bicycle was found wandering about town yesterday without the owner who was s apposed to have goue away in the Mariposa. It was caught and chaiiid op in front of Rqbertson's store with a lab 1 stating that it had strayed on to the steps. aud was there awaiting its owner. The owner aiiu at length, proved his property, paid thepoundl ofees and went home happy. A late banker from San Francisco on Tuesday af. ternoon created a little disturbance at a public bar when refused an extra supply of liquor of which. seemingly he had already had enough. The bankeT threatened to throw a glass at the bartender and then drew a pistol again demanding the liq uor. His frieuds interfered and removed him be fore any serious damage was done. Ou Monday evening Engine Co. No. 1, had their regular monthly meeting, when, after the usual routine of business, the members of the Hose Co. through Mr. G. Faucett presented Mr. S. M. Whit man, their newly elected captain, with a handsome silver badge, and an enameled belt, as a token of the respect and esteem they bore him. After the adjournment of the meeting a few toasts were pro posed and some songs brought the evening' entertainment to a close. 'M. H. F." formerly Mrs. Buruham, the well- known correspondent, does not like Mrs. Langtry. To evidence what one woman can say about anoth er, we quote the following from her last New York letter: "Mrs. Langtry is a most remarkab le wo man. On a fine complexion, a good head of hair,. a gash of a mouth, large wholesome teeth, a bust as flat as a Boston cracker, very ugly arms, abnor mally big hands and feet, wickedly slender ami nubby-kneed legs, a very shamble of a walk, a vio lently corsetted waist, she has established a repu tation for beauty almost divine." .lne-riran Pu per. Monday morning Mr. Samuel Parker and Mr. W. H. Cornwall conceived tho happy thought of raising a subscription for the bind boys to enable them to have a little more enjoyment during their trip to San Francisco. An immediate energetic canvass of the town was made and. in less than three hours over six hundred dollars was collected, which amount was increased during the evening and will probably bo still further increased this, morning. The idea was a happy one aud the two. gentlemen'who exerted themselves so readily and with so much enthusiasm are deserving of the highest commendation. A lady now visiting Honolulu says that the c hief fault in mankind is that we are prone, when study ing tho characters of others, to endeavor to ascer tain and think only of their worst side instead of trying to discover that which is good; that all criminals even those of the deepest dye have some good in them and could be reformed if their better nature were sought for instead of treating them as " once a criminal always a criminal. " So it is with the world in general, we look aud sometime long for that which is bad, whereas if we sought more for the good, our own lives would be happier and the world generally would seem brighter to us. On Thursday-evening at the Chinese theater a new pantomimic performance was placed on the boards introducing an old actor named Bui Ah Tin in a species of spectacular show. Some clever acrobatic actions were gone through with a chnirit ahle act during which the audience were kept in suspense as was the celebrated Bul-ah-tin who was hanging from a rope by his cue bearing on his shoulders all the weight of his daily sins in the shape of the man who sat upon him. Among the audience present were Policeman A 999, Cabbie No. 1.703, the man who slept on the former visit and a man who gazed gleefully at everything. His Excellency the Minister of Foreign Affairs has recently received from Mr. Sugi, the Minister of the Imperial Household of Japan, some very valuable presents for the Hawaiian Museum. Among them are five hundred different specimens of Japanese silft fabrics representing the complete silk manufacture of Japan. They are of all varie ties from the heavy brocades to the differs. t kinds of lighter dress silks and all of them are richly em broidered with figures, flowers, leaves, etc., in gold. There is also a collection numbering one hundred and twenty specimens of Japanese fancy woods with their Japanese and botanical names. They comprise the exquisite white woods and the pure black ebony all in their natural tint and unvar nished, with their rich pungent perfumes. Besides these there are over a hundred photographs of temples, public-buildings, groves of forest trees, gardens pdwlic recreation grounds and general scenery ' 3ese are all carefully arranged in hand atom sly Bound albums and form very interesting and valuable souvenir, showing as they do, the in terest felt iu Hawaii and the friendly relations be tween Japan aud this Kingdom. Repairs to the Pali road will shortly be under taken. The steamer Mokolii leaves on Saturday with sixty lepers for Molokai. Mr. Ellis was trying a new horse up Fort Street yesterday. When's the sale? One of the photographs taken of tho Mariposa when leaving ou Tuesday is very good. Gideon West has new appliances for the uianu fact ure aud repairs of carriages and vehicles of all kinds. Who is the newspaper man in town that is said to looks as if he wrote two lines a day and then got tired? The new brick structure being built on Nuuanu Street, near King, for Steven Spencer, is very near ly finished. What was the matter witn the Gazette $ commer cial news this week; who can understand the first paragraph? The social of the Algeroba Lodge will le held in the hall of the Y. M. C. A. rooms instead of the hall of the Knights of Pythias. Mr. Charles Hustace has full power of attorney to act for Mr. Bolles in all business matters dur ing the absence of the latter, The Minister of the Interior has taken iu hand the matter of openiug up Merchant street which will shortly be vigorously pushed on. Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Brewster Wood, of Philadel phia, Penn., are staying at the Hotel. Mrs. Wood is a charming pianiste and her brilliant perform ances have been a source of real pleasure to the guests. The following was the raiufall at Mr. J. W Wood's dairy ranch in July: On 6th .20 inch. 8th .88in, 10th .38in. 13th 4.34in. 14th 2.i)0in, 15th 2()in, 2d .10in. 27th .G. 28th .12in: total 9.08 inches. His Majesty was the recixient Thursday morn ing of an excellent photograph of Iolani Palace, mounted in a handsome frame. This photograph which was taken and presented by Mr. J. Williams, is one of the prettiest views of the Palace that has ever been seen, it is also very superior as a work of art !eing very clear and accurate in every little de ail. On the last occasion of the anniversary of the " Accession of Her Majesty Queeu Victoria, " Ad miral Ting of the Chinese navy, dressed his ships with bunting in the harbor of Hongkong. The Daily Pre.s does not remember seeing Chinese gun-vessels pay any attention to the customs of foreigners before, and asks is it possible that in structions have been given that the English are to be conciliated, now that there is really a likelihood of a rupture with the French? Horace Mayhew, says the Londsn Cuten r, once joined a league for the suppression of "tips" to waiters. Lunching one day, he began to feci ner vous as the time for paying the bill arrived, but finally mustered courage to sav: " William, I am sorry for you, but I have joined the No-Tippers. " "Well, Mr. Mayhew, " answered William mildly, " as you are an old customer, I don't mind telling you that I have joined a rum lot too. We've bound ourselves to upset hot dishes by accident over the legs of stingy customers. " A Chinaman named Aku was yesterday charged at the Police Court with keeping a disreputable house. A number of witnesses for the prosecution showed clearly that the house was neither more nor less than a brothel and the evidence was of a most disgraceful character aud entirely unfit for publication. The defendant, by the advice of his counsel, pleaded guilty and was fined a hundred dollars and costs. Fortunately such instances are rare in Honolulu, and this is probably the first case of the kind that has ever been heard here. Mr. J. Williams our well known photographer goes to Hilo next week aud theuca ou to the volcauo where he intends to remain until he has taken such good photographs of the crater and its surround ings as he ha made up his mind to get. He will also take views of Hilo an 1 its neighborhood and such other places of general interest as he may visit. Mr. Williams h. o.eu asked to undertake this trip by photographers in America who are eager, in consequent of the growing interest in the States concerning this Kingdom, to obtain a large series of good views of its most interesting scenery. One of the forms for tax assessment was recently sent to a lady in Honolulu instead of to her hus band; she however was equal to the emergency and filled up the document iu due course. The re turns specified that her property consisted of cas tles in the air, and that the only person in her em ploy was her husband and she considered that he was taxed heavily enough already; the Assessor thought so too and made no change on him. The lady also possessed an orinthorhynchus, but as this animal did not come under the class of either horse or dog she was allowed to go free aud contributed nothing to the revenue of the country. The schooner Nettie Merrill left Lahaina on Wed nesday afternoon arriving in town Thursday morn ing with the mournful news that Mr. James Hay selden was dangerously ill ami hardly expected to recover. It seems that Mr. Hayselden about two months ago went to San Francisco for the benefi t of his health, but finding that the air there was too cold he at once returned to Honolulu. A few weeks since he weut to Lahaina and on Tuesday was seized with a severe hemorrhage, the result of an accident, which was not stopped for nearly twenty four hours, leaving him in a very exhausted condi tion. Mr. Thomas Hayselden is with his brother, and Thursday afternoon Dr. Brodie and Mr. Fred Hayselden went to Lahaina in the Nettie Merrill, there being no steamer in port which could take them. Dr. Trousseau was precluded by his busi ness engagements in town from accompanying Mr. Hayselden, and it is to be hoped that his brother's illness is not so serious or dangerous as has been reported. Captain Bates, of the S. S. Iwalani, was Wednes day temporarily superseded in his command of that steamer by a y.dng bull that was being shipped to Hawaii. His bullship made some disturbance on shore but when hauled on board he quickly got clear of his lashings and took to lashing on his own account with his hind quarters and so effectually that he cleared the fore part of the ship inless than the shaking of a lamb's tail and took complete charge, even Captain Bates quitting quickly his vau tago ground. After a quarter of an hour's intense excitement when seven boys, three men and five wo men were not gored to death and the ball lost one horn he was eventually made fast again to the rig ging with a piece of clothes line; this aud the rig ging both carried away and again his bullship was monarch of all he surveyed. Ultimately a brave kanaka made him fast when he was wedged tightly between the windlass and mast, find again all was quiet. But tot for long, for a restive horse on the wharf got frightened and cleared everything with in twenty yards of him without killing anybody. The bull's horn is to be presented to the editor of a contemporary that he may then be better able to blow his own trumpet and have something where with to do it. On Th urs lay afternoon at three o'clock the fire bells rang out their direful news that a fire had started. On arrival at Messrs. Hollister A Co.'s store an Fort street, the scene of the disaster.it was found, fortunately for them and unfortunately for the daily scribes, that the fire was out. o ne fluid ginger that was being strained in one of their back rooms ran over the sides of the container on to an oil stove that was burning below and imme diately ignited, close by was a demijohn of alcohol which was immediately a mass of liquid fire and it appeared as if the whole store must go. Fortu nately with great presence of mind Jfr. McCartney instead of pouring water on the flames, which, where alcohol is burning, would only have increas ed them, picked up the jars, containers, the burning stove and threw them out of doors, the risk t here being comparatively reduced to nothing and con fined to the fence which could have been extin guished by the engines that were quickly on the pot. Mr. McCartney says this is his third acci dent through using a coal oil ttove and he won't do it any more. Miss Bruns gave a very pleasant social on Thurs day night. Tenders are invited for the supply of hard pai.ii for the Oahu Prison. Boating parties are again taking advantage of the clear moonlight nights. Two (rt-riiiaii books on Surveying ami Sugar are at the Postotriee awaiting an owner. Her Majesty Queen Dowager Emma went yester day to Sumner's Island for a fe.v days change of air. The fisheries of Keehi aud Kaliawa are taboo from November 1st to May dlst for the protection of the fisheries. Mr. M. D. Monsarrat has been appointed a Com missioner of Private Ways and Water Rights for the district of Koua, Oahu. Four of the police were detailed oil' to guard the branch hospital yesterdav prior to the departure of the lepers for Molokai to-day. Brooms are scarce in town. Deputy-Marshal Dayton having purchased all that could be found to sweep out the Punchbowl fire. The Rev. Geo. Wallace, having completed a year of residence as minister of St. Andrew's Pro-Cathedral, will preach an anniversary sermon to-morrow morning. The grand Louvre of Brussels, at the corner of King and Alakea streets, ojiens to-day with a very superior assortment of ladies' goods comprising clothing of all kinds, silks, satins, real laces, hats aud general fancy good. -The Oceanic and Honolulu Baseball Clubs will meet again this afternoon at four o'clock on the Parade ground. Ladies are particularly in" vited to encourage the boys by their presence; the betting iu gloves, iu which the odds were at first slightly in favor of the Honolulu Club is now even. Mr. Ellis reports the following changes iu stocks: Haiku Sugar Company, asked $'175; the Makee Su gar Company, bid $100, asked $115; Union Mill Company, bid $1350, asked $1100; Hawaiian Bell Telephone Company, bid $40, asked $50; Inter-Island Steam Navigation Company, bid $140, asked $145; E. O. Hall A Son. Limited, bid $122, asked $125. Yesterday morning Mrs. Bright, accompanied by the Honorable S. N. Castle and Miss Castle, visited the Government Buildings, culling at the Foreign Office, Library, Museum aud other departments. Mrs. Bright was much interested in the visit and greatly admired the excellent order of the build ings and of Government business. Geo. D. Curtis, of Hartford, Connecticut, for sev eral years connected editorially with the Hart ford Coiirnnt, (Senator J. 11. llawley's paper), is visiting the Islands, and is stopping at the Hawaii an Hotel. He will be pleased to iniH-t former resi dents of Connecticut, of whom there are many in this section. Curtis is one of those jolly good fel lows that everybody ought to know. iYesterday morning at half-past uiae the Uoin:iii Catholic Cathedral was the scene of a quiet wed ding iu which Scnor Cauavarro, tho Commissioner for Portugal, and Mrs. Bates, of Oakland, Califor nia, were the principal actors. The ceremony was performed by Bishop Hermann Kockemuuii, the bride being handed to her husband by Consul Mc Kinley, Mr. J. W. Pfiuger supporting the bride groom through the trying ordoul. Mrs. Piluger, Mrs. Dudoit, and Mr. William Flowerdew were al so present. Everybody will join iu wishing good luck to the genial Senorand his bride who is a very clever and accomplished woman. Yesterday afternoon the Hon. G. W. Macfarlaue gave a fishing party at his Waikiki residence. There were present Captain and Mrs. Hayley, Mr. and Mrs. Strong. Mr. Flowerdew, Mr. Clareuce Macfarlaue, aud Mr. Whitney. The party took to the boats making a haul large enough to supply all their friends with fish and subsequently they took to the water returning home thoroughly re freshed and able to enjoy some music iu tho even ing. The ladies appeared to excel in thr art of hooking their prey, one catching a shirk forty-two feet in length; the only thing one of the gentlemen caught was a cold through a sudden and unex pected immersion iu the deep blue briny. The question is who was it ? Yesterday morning as H. R. H. Princes Likelike was sitting in het carriage in town and waiting for her orders to be attended to, she allowed her eyes to wander across the street when her attention was quickly drawn to an apparently overworked, or not-been-to-bed clerk who was sitting perched on his high official stool calmly sleeping the hlcep of the innocent, nodding hi head and ignorant of waiting customers who stood around him amused though silent. "E, hiiiinoe ka haole ! " (say, the foreigner's asleep). Her musical voice immediate ly aroused the foreigner who found himself the laughing stock of the owners of fifty pairs of eyes. After a long and interesting article iu a late San Francisco paper describing the Home of the Inebri ates, the treatment of patients and how to affect a cure, the final paragraph reads: "The fact remains, however, that there is noth iug that will absolutely destroy tho appetite for li quor. Care can restore the patient to health, treatment can take all the alcohol out of his sys tem and make of him almost a new person, and, as has been said, in the great majority of the cases o patients under 40 year. of age. the cure is perma nent. But then that cure is predicated in a great measure upon the strength of the will power of the convalescents themselves to resist temptation." It seems strange that the sting of a mosquito should affect some people differently from others and that the little insect should be blamed for the large lumps raised on the bodies of tender citizens. A lady who has an initii;'ne swelling on her hand said "one mosquito got into my netting last night and caused about twenty painful and disagreeable swellings, such as this. " Now there is a certain little animal called a bug which no one likes to le accused of having in their houses, but which is very prevalent in Honolulu, and shuns daylight, making it difficult to prove its presence. It is not easy either to destroy him after he once takes pos session of a place. May not the little bug have been ou the raid and done tho mischief instead of the dear little mosquito whose pleasant and ever welcome music at once proclaims a time of rest and peace, and who lnJIs us to sleep with his charming melodies. Mr. H. S. Greeley, the late Manager of the Ha waiian Hotel, has leen posing to the reporter of the 8. F. Chronicle, as a speaker of public opinion in this Kingdom, since his return to the Coast. He says: "All is serene at present in the social aud political affairs of the islands, although at one time there came near being a riot over the coronation of King Kalakaua, about half of the natives contend ing that the legitimate title to the throne was vested in Queen Emma. But the difficulty was fi nally compromised and Kalakaua was crowned, to the joy of Sir Claus Spreckels." Mr. Greeley evi dently belongs to that class of traveler, who think it their bounden duty to say something sensational about any place they have lived in. Mr. Hotel Man ager Greeley would do well to confine his attention in the future to the drawing of corks rather than attempt the drawing of the long bow from his im aginative brain. A big newspaper of this city, avowedly devoted to the public service in the way of forming correct information of public events, gets up astatement of a recent notable reception, that on board the Mariposa, and publishes what it declares to be the most prominent of the guests on board, and yet takes pains to gratify a paltry personality in omit ting names, that according to position, are obvi ously among the most prominent. Of ten-times be fore has this so-called newspaper taken pains to misrepresent particulars of certain occasion and studiously ignore the presence of parties whomt was well-known had taken part in them. Of course the parties referred to could not possibly be honored by any mention of their names in this sheet; but. when it pretends to be a. correct chronicler of events, i will be obvious to the public that this partially prejudiced print is run by mef.n-minded men and is -utterly untrustworthy as a correct re cord of public events. Yet sometimes history is made up from such incorrect sources of informa tion. Verily, how are the mighty fallen when tin y thus expose their littleness. The mounted constabulary Innn d mit promptly on Thursday afternoon to extinguish the lire on Punchbowl. A wag who recently stayed lit the lloyal Ha waiian Hotel expressed his surprise nn.l disgnst at not leing able to obtain a sandwich with his 1-' r about half past nine o'clock each v. ning. II concluded to quit the Si nhri, li Islands and !- !. the Friendly Isles where he hoped to be better treated. To-day fifty lepers leave by the Mokolii for Mo lokai, fifty more will li sent next week and anoth er fiftv a short time later. This will make a to tal of three hundred and seventy-live lepeii sent there in less thau twelve mouth.

The fire which occurred on Punchbowl on Thurs day afternoon was caused by the carelessness nf some Chinamen who had been visiting ait old of a fellow-countryman and when buiniug then joss had neglected to put out all the lire.
