Fifty-one leper left on Saturday by the Mokolii for Molokai at five o'clock. ITis Majesty took a trip to Kalibi in the Kapiolani Sunday returning in the evening. The Iwalani experienced very rough weather ou her last trip to Maui. Everybody was unwell. The old woman who wa knocked down by an expreiifi on Saturday morning Mill continues to im prove. Bathing at Waikiki by moonlight eern to tn a favorite imnmeut just now with the yonug of both sexex. The rules of the Supreme and Circuit Courts of the Hawaiian Islands have been published in pam phlet form. It has ben surest-id that the palm tree in front of the Kamehameha statue should -Le removed as it prevents people from obtaining a good view of the atatue. There was a mau iu town Saturday who had so ranch business on his hands that it took him a quarter of an hour to decide which way to go and what he should do when he got there. A haudsome gate and iron railing fenco are to be built in front of Colonel Spreckel'n residence on the plains which will b? a great improvement to the property, Mr. E. Thomas is the contractor for the work. Mrs. E. B. C. Wall if has i-nied circulars con cerning her school which will re-opan iu the mid dle of September. She has some good testimonials from Major Wodehouse. Captain Mist and other gentlemen, aud announces .that her school is for girls not younger than ten years old and that she is prepared to take a'few more boarders. On Saturday night between niue and ten o'clock two men named Tom Mason and Maiola had a fight on Punchbowl street. The event attracted a great deal of attention and was witnessed by several hundred people, chiefly native and Chinamen. Tom waa the victor in the ring but the police made no apparent distinction when ringing them togeth er and they were each provided with similar ac commodation until this morning. A melon was sent to this offi- on Saturday which was grown on Mr. J. II. Wood's rauch by J. W. Hengly. It is of the varijty known as Cu ban Queen and weighs forty-six and a half pounds measuring round forty aad forty-tiv inches. Cau anyone beat this as we are prepared to reci-ive any quantity of melons; they are very refreshing while working at night and if we get ill it increases the doctor's business. Send them alotig. Ou Saturday at noon Mr. George H. Fassett en- i tered upon his duties as manager of the Hawaiian Hotel. Mr. Fassett has, had nineteen years exper- ienee in hotel management. For eleven years he 1 wa manager of the old Sherman House and Grand Pacific Hotel in Chicago; for three seasons he : managed the West End Long Branch Hotel in New ' York and from 1877 to the end of 1882 he was man ' ager of the Baldwin in Kan Francisco. Dr. Mc Grew is to be congratulated upon his choice of i such a capable manager in whose bauds there can ' be no doubt that the hotel will be well conducted, f Keep a good cook George. i On Saturday morning when the steamer Kilauea Hon arrived about half pat five, the head atall on the horse in an express, belonging to a native, gave t way and the animal bolted round Brewer' build i ing towards the fish market where a deaf and dumb ! native woman about eighty years of age was knocked down. The vehicle fortunately did tot run over her, but her head and breast were badly scratched and she received a very severe shock to j her system, which it was at one time feared would prove fatal on account of her old age; she is at i present in a rather'precarious condition. I On Saturday evening an express containing four people besides the driver wan coming down Liliha ! street when the driver, who had been leating the j horse for jibbing, leant over to hit it again and the ; animal started at fnll galop down the ftreet, leav- iug the driver, who had fallen out on bis head, far behiad. The reins had fallen down bnt one of the pt.tners. with great presence of mind and cou ! siderable pluck, stepping on to the sJiaf ts, picked I them np and sacoeded in stoppiug the runaway, j The drivr was not injured a his hoad was harder I than the road in which ha made a fair-sized hole I that will necessitate th attention of the Road Su j pervisor. j Mr. Kock. one of the Committee appointed by ; the Young Men's Christian Association to make periodical visits to tlie h spital. callud at this of fice Monday afternoon to state that the steward of the German bark Canopus is now lying in the Queen's hospital suffering from injuries inflicted upon him by the captain of that vessel. The stew ard, whose name is Urnhbmeyer, has ra id state ments to the apothecary of the hospital and to Mr. Glade the Cmsul for Gjrraany t- th e ffect that the captain knocked him dovru with his fist and thfn kicked him on thheil. since then he has been dang -ious.y ill suffering from fits, with which he was u'ver pr ;.i msly affli.-U- l. aud is said to be dying. Mr. (iliU wts to hivo continued taking the sick man's statem;ut yesterday bat he was too ill. Mr. J. Nolte having purchased a lot belonging to the Lnnalilo estate aud near Kspiolani Park is building a larj- J h )d tlire pirt of which he will utilize as a private dv Uiii and t!u remain 1 r as a public refreshment ro .m for p -rsn who may wish to mak picnic or excursion pirtis to that suburb. Ica creams, tea. coffej, choc. date, sand wiches, cakes, etc.. will always be ou hand and tables will be placed on the verandah, which will be twelve feet wide, for tlioa.wh desire t eat in the fresh air. Tha fl mr of his large room is being laid down with a view to reittin ; it f r danoerf or ball and Mr. Jam" D 1 l'.r a;raol toco-operate with and assist Mr. X lt. by running extra and special coaches whenivr th?y iniy ba required. 4 This is oue of the things that hat long been much needed in Honolulu an t the ente rprisinj; proprie tor deserves support and success. On Saturday afternoon at four o'clock at the Fish Market a native named Keaka dropped down dead while attending to business at his stall. The deceased's body was examined by Dr. Brodie and an investigation was at once held bfore Marshal Parke when the doctor stated that death was caused by heart disease. Opunui skate: I am the wife of Keaka K the man now lyiug dead. Three days ago my husband complained of pain in his head my husband was all well this morning. He went down to the fish market and attended to his table selling fish and about 4 p. M. dropped down dead. We hare been married since 18C7. I never heard of my husband having any quarrel with any persons. I think he died from natural cause. Dr. Brodie was called by the Marshal to exam ine the body of the deceased, Keaka K, and after a full examination and putting questions to the wife of the deceased, he said in bis opinion he did not think it necessry to hold a post mortem ex amination as the probable oause of death was Krari d'utate. On the arrival of the steamer C. It. Bishop ou Saturday morning three express men left their wa gons on the wharf insufficiently attended having only very' small boys to attend to them. They were all arrested, and each was fined ten dollars and costs at the station house during the day. This habit of leaving vehicles unfastened or im properly attended is of much too frequent occur rence in Honolulu and the law against it hhould Le rigorously enforced. Another fault that many hackmen, especially the natives, have is that they stop their vehicles in all parts of the town and block np the road, where two or three congregate together and chat, to the great Inconveiiieuo of foot passengers; this has been especially noticeable at the corners of Nuoanu and Be re tan ia streets where ladies hare time and again been greatly- in convenienced. There is a hack policeman, who is said to own several carriages himself so tb,at if his own drivers infringe the laws h: must in common fairness allow other drivers to do the same; and that he neglects Lis duty most be evident to almost every resident who his onticed the nuisances just mentioned. The complaints that have been made on this subject are very numerous. A man has been arrested for selling liquor with out a license. At Kohala and on Maui there have been good sUady rains but not so heavy as fell in Honolulu last week. His Excellency Governor Doniinis left Tuesday on the Likelike for Maui. Hon. A. S. Cleghorn acts as Governor. Forty-five tins of opium that have been seized from time to time on Kauai, have been received by the police authorities in Honolulu. A brother of George Augustus Sala. author of "Twice Round the Clock" hs been living at Kona for nearly twenty years. Captain Fiben of the C. Peusacola, accom panied by the United States Consul Mr. D. A. Mc Kinley. called on Monday at the Foreign Office.and to-day His Majesty will receive the captain and of ficers at Iolani Palace at noon. Jack was ashore Monday from the Pensacola. A large party of him stuck up everybody they met on Fort street asking "are you an American ? " Everybody wisely answered "yes" in preference to receiving the threatened "hit on the nose." A new freight scow of about 25 tons burden, built by Messrs. Wilder A Co. on the marine rail way, was shipped to Lnhaina Monday per steamer Lehna. for 4he use of the Likelike and I-liua. 1 lie job of puttiug it on lioard was very successfully accomplished, reqiring only three captains to boss the ceremonies. On Saturday evening some evil disposed person entered the cabin of the first mate of the lumber schooner Lena Sweasey, and carried off several ar. tides of clothing, a wit.-h and five dollars in cash The culprit has not yet hen found but the mate wants to get hold of him for a few minutes. An express wagon belonging to a Chinaman and of course unattended bolted down Beretania street Menday shortly after noon and ran into a man who was riding in the opposite directiou; one of the shafts of the express hit him on the leg and in jured him rather severely. Monday morning United States Consul Mc Kinley paid an official visit to the U. S. S. S. Pen sacola and was receieved with the salute of seven guns to which his officinl rant entitles him. In the afternoon Captain Erhen in company with Con sul McKinley called at the various Government Departments and upon the British Commissioner. A man wt.s charged Monday at the Police Court with sellinj liquor without a license on Snnday. He pleaded rnilty and was fined $200 and costs S3, which amonnt he paid up immediately leaving be hind him at the Station House a basket full of bottle of gin. His next offence of a similar char acter will cost him $o00 besides a term of impris onment with hard labor. Mr. Churchill, a member of the staff at Iolani College, left Honolulu a fortnight ago. for Hawaii and on the voyage across was taken seriously ill, itf.in. landed on that island in a very weakened and exhausted condition. The latest news con cerning him is that he was slowly but surely re covering and will probably return much lienefitcd by his trip, ne was very sea-sick. Mr. C. Carson, who has for some time past been engaged in a work descriptive of the Kingdom, its politics, and society, begs to thank all his friends for the valuable information they have furnished him. and, at the same timo asks those who have promised him biographical matter to be kind enough to forward it. We look forward with pleasure to an opportunity of perusing Mr. Car son's work. Mr. Marchant has sent us some new cigars spec ially imported for this market and Mr. Nolte has sent us some new cigars specially imported for this market and both arrived on tho same day and al most at the same time. Now what can be said of them. Marchant's were nianila cigars and Nolte's j were manila cigars and cheroots. Both lots were good, and, under the circumstances, what can be said better. It is not generally known that pheasant shooting can be obtained on these Islands, bnt such in fact, is the case. Several parties have recently been formed to go gunning on this Island not many miles from Honolulu, the gulches at the back of Punchbowl lieing the spots chiefly frequented by these feathered fowl. Up to the present time no body has returned with a bag full though often a cock pheasant of lioautiful plumage and manifest signs of plumpness and adaptability for cooking has ben seen alone. He believed to be the only one. The great credit sale conducted by Mr. E. P. Adams at Haekld .V Co.'s store came to a conclu sion Monday after extending over a period of five days a longer time than has been oecnpied by auy similar sale in this Kinglou. The attendance each day numbering from eighty to one hundred people, except on Saturday when it was not quite so large. Luncheon was provide d every day, and every lot offered was sold so that nobody should be disappointed; the a-i-iortment of goods was most varied almost everything imaginable being offered. The total amount realized by the whole sale was $50,000. Last Monday evening bont 7:30 Captain Mehrtens armed with due aud proper authority and accompanied by policniin Kanoma, mad" a raid upon a house on King street adjoining that on which the unsuccessful atte.npt was made on Fri day night. The building was on the ground floor and consisted of tw r.vmn; the outer d or was found brn?d bit was quickly burst open and two Chinamen named Ah Man and Lo Sam, thw pro prietor of the shanty, were found lying" on their mats on the floor iu a bare, dirty and squalid room. They were half-stupefied with the fume s of the dreadful drug and mad; no attempt to conce al their law breaking utensils or to defend themselves. The spoils consisted of threa tins full of opium, three pipes, three lamps, and the scales fitted neatly in t-v their case. A third man had left the room a few minutes previously but the two captives were marched to thi Station hons? iu the midst of a large crowd and accommodated with free quarters for the night. Jn a visit to the iniuta few davs ago a reporter was shown the dies for the new Hawaiian coinage, which is to be soon issued at Honolulu and Feat tered ever the islands of Kalakaua's Kingdom. The dies were cut at Philadelphia and sent to this city, a contract or arrangement having been made here for the coinage. If the dies should require retouching that work can bo successfully perform ed here, but there are neither cutters nor author ity to make the dies. The dies show the bust of Kalakana on the obverse side and the same impres sion that is made upon American coins of like value appears on the reverse. The reverse carries the denomination aud the inscription in the Ha waiian language, "Kingdom of Hawaii." The coins will le of silver, of the denominations of one dollar. half-dollar, quarter-dollar and eighth-dollar. There is a quantity ef bullion now at the mint which is to be used in this coinage only, and work will be commenced upon the order from the Is lands and prosecuted to completion liefore any thing else is taken up. Honolulu has long been a mine of great resources for the devotees of numis matic. Let an American land from one of the steamers or a trading vessel at Honolulu aud go out to make a fa trifling purchases, tendering a new stand dollar eiu'h time, when he returns to his vessel he will have a pocketful of rare and quaintly leautiful specimens of foreign coin from every part of the world and in all conditions of preservation. Mexican. Chinese, Danish, Swed ish, English and American coins pass current. A piece of the size and approximate weight of a quar ter is a quarter to all intents and pur poses. Some Yankee genius once took advantage of - this strange condition of affairs and collected quite a sum ia English half-crowns. These were sent out on an out ward bo uud steamer to Sydney, where they were ex changed for shillings and sixpence pieces. Each half-crown, gaye a return of three pieces, which passed as two quarters, and a "bit;" so the Yankee was a gainer of a "bit" or a six-pence on each half orown. Sqcb little incidents as this hare epened the eyes of the people, and the residents of Hono lulu particularly have been clamorous for Sand wich Island money. 8. F. Chronicle. The regular prayer meeting of the members of the Bethel will be held this evening. A party of sixteen invaded a bachelor's cottage on Sunday night and took entire possession. The building for storing fruit shipped to and from San Francisco is being erected by Mr. F Horn. The Elsinore discharged about 20,000 bricks and received over 1.000 bags of sugar from the schoon er Liholiho Tuesday. A sailor on Monday night had the pocket cut out of a long new coat that he had just purchased. Xiue dollars are missing. The Revere sailed for Port Townsend Tuesday, with four passengers. She is the first vessel for some time that has left for that place. Yesterday the James Makee sailed for the first time in several months on advertised dav. Ad vertised time tables ought to be adhered to if pos sible. The Cauopus has hauled out into the stream to await the arrival and departure of the Australian mail steamer, before she can receive any more sugar. Last Monday night several young men were caught playing "Peeping Tom" at the gymnasi um, while the ladies were practicing. Their names are known. A man on going to bed recently found every ar ticle of furniture iu hi room heaped on to the bed. and. as he could not move them single handed, he was compelled to seek another room. A scholastic professor was seen a few days ago riding towards Waikiki with a broom in his hand. It was generally supposed that he was taking ad vantage of his vacation to sweep the cobwebs from his brain. There is a "truthful" man on Maui who is so se verely virtuous that he deems it his duty to de nounce a corrupt Government at every conceiva ble opportunity, but at the same time he also deems it his duty to pocket pay as one of its agents. One evening several of the most intellectual of our citizens might have been seen in earnest dis cussion over an article in s weekly contemporary. They all wore an appearance of puzzled curiosity. One said "it means that no! that can't be it," etc., and the general verdict was "there must be something left out." Solomn brooding silence ensued till No. 1 musingly said "there is no sense in it as it is." Then all exclaimed "why of course it is the sense that is left out." This is a fact. Police officer No. 17, well known ou the King and Fort street beats, found the door of Hopp & Co.'s furniture store open last Thursday after sun down. He took temporary possession by occupy ing an easy chair in the front door-way. After a long and easy rest, he discovered there were some workmen engaged upstairs. This policeman is noted for his vigilance, both by day and night, aud many acts of carelessness on his beat have been rectified by his watchfulness. Considerable interest is being manifested in base ball matters in this city. There are three or four organized clubs, aud tke public has been treated to a freesight of this game every Saturday after noon for s:uie weeks past. Oue at least of those clubs h is b Joins quite & formidable antagonist to meet on the diamond field aud has come o.f rictor ihus in various contests. A few days ago a corres pondent of the Aovertisf.u published his willing ness to back the Amities against this club, (-the Houolnlans) . As yet we have, not heard that his offer has b.n?n accepted. Should the match be madts the ga ue will probably a very interesting one. A Philadelphia special of July 26th says: A re ception was given to-night on board the new ship Alameda of the Oceanic Steamship Company o f San Francisco just completed at Cramp's ship yard and destined to ply between that city and Honolulu. Among those who favored the company with selections on the piano were Miss Maggie Cramp, aged eighteen, daughter of Joseph Cramp of the well-known firm of shipbuilders. On leav ing the ship and descending the gang plank to a lighter alongside Miss Cramp made a missstep, and falling over, was drowned. Her body has not been recovered up to one o'clock. The sad acciden t brought the reception to an abrupt close. During the mouth of July eighty-six books were added to the shelves of the Honolulu Library and Reading room, over fifty of them being presented by Mr. S. B. Dole, seven by Mrs. Fitch and the re mainder being purchased. Among those presented by Mr. Dole are Robert South's Sermons, Barrow's works complete, Rev. Robert Hall's works, Rev. Robert Leigh ton's wsrks. The Physical Theory of Another Life, Method of the Divine Government, Spiritual Des potism, Natural History of Enthusiasm and and Reminiscences of Coleridge and Son they. Among those purchased are The History of An cient Art, Hayden's Dictionary of Dates, An Hon orable Surrender, Friends in Counoil, A Nihilist Princess, Dust and A Word, Only a Word. People desirous of having a oonjfortablo ride to their last resting place should inspect the new hearse of Messrs. Lycan and Johnson which is by far the handsomest carriage of the kind in the city and attracted considerable attention on Sunday af ternoon. A hearse is not the kind of thing one can go into ecstacieB over and, until one rides in it, the ease and comfort with which it goes over the ground cannot be positively stated; however an op portunity for an unbiased opinion will be offered to tbe editor of our contemporary the Daily Blad der (so called because it generally contains noth ing but wind) who will be driven round town on some afternoon to be agreed upon. Our daily neighbor says that "it seems to be a good recommendation for Government employment to have been previously employed on the Auveb tiseb." Well now it appears not to be a bad recom mendation to have been employed on the Bulletin, judging by a recent appointment made by the Board of Education. Tho fact is that any good newspaper man is well qualified to do good gov ernment work and the following illustrious exam ples prove this statement, Gladstone in England; Gambetta in France; Garfield in America, and there is now Gibson in Hawaii. To this quartette of illustrious G'sallof whom have been newspa per men, may be added little George of the Bulle tin. Wednesday afternoon Captain Erben of the U. S. S. Pensacola, accompanied by several of his officers paid a visit to H. R. IT- Princess Liliuokala-ii at her residence on Beretania street. On landing they were received by Consul D. A. McKinley who ac companied them to ner Royal Highnes's resi dence where they were met by Major Boyd who presented Consul McKinley to Her Royal Highness and he in turn presented Captain Erbsn and offi cers. Those present were Consul D. A. McKinley. Captain Erben, Chief-Engineer Goo. F. Kutz, Pay Inspector Rufus Parks, Chaplain J. K. Lewis, Lieut. F. Handford. Lieut. F. H. Delano, Past As sistant Surgeon Geo. P. Lumsden, Ensign Frank R. Heath, Lieut. J. A. Turner, and Naval Cadets. J. J. Blandin, F. If. Oonant and Andrew McAllis ter. It was stated iu this paper last week that Mn. J. Williams, the photographer, had gone to Kilauea accompanied by Mr. William Lentz, the late man ager of the Volcano House who was to act as guide and assistant to enable Mr. Williams to obtain the best possible views of the volcano, and its wonder ful surroundings. Arrangements had been made for an extended trip as the party decided not to re turn until they got what they wanted and no ex pense was spared in the nndertaking which was partly in the interests of people in America. Mr. Jordan, the present manager of the Volcano rouse heard of the contemplated, vjsitof Lcntz (the form er manager) and at once wrote to Williams at Hilo telling 'him that Lenta; would net be allowed in line the house and strongly advising them to bring their own tents so as to be prepared for camping o.ut and otherwise holding ont hopes of a cordial welcome to the trayelers. .YiHims paid no atten: tion to the threats an4 calmly firocede4 on. hjs way. accompanied by the objectionable Lentz. An account of the reception of the invaders and the manner in which they stormed the house will be looked forward to with interest. The Elsinore is discharging her load of bricks very slowly. The U. S. S. Pensacola will sail for Yokohama on Tuesday or Wednesday next. The hack policeman says he has no interest is any carriages but he wishes to goodness he had. A very large quantity of railroad iron was shipped to Koloa. Kauai. Wednesday, per schooner Liholiho. The dry wine of the Honolulu licensed victual lers is not appreciated by the Pensacola boys. They prefer something wet and fiery. Quite a number of the Pensacola boys decked themselves out yesterday in linen dusters aud straw hats. They seemed ro enjoy the change, so also did Fort street clothing merchants. We learned Wednesday at police headquarters, rumors to the contrary notwithstanding, that the crew of the man-of-war Pensacola is one of the best behaved that has appeared in our city for some years. Cannot some of our boating clubs and boys in blue give us a boat race, say . iturday ? The band being away we ough . -i irovise some amusement, and we know of n itliiug more enjoya ble than a good boat race. Improvements are the order of' the day; what say some ol you merchants lour sidewalks are in a horrible condition. Stir up your landlords Give us good sidewalks before the rainy season sets n. By so doing you will have the prayers of the just. Captain Geo. H. Luce, the indefatigable tax col lector of Honolulu, has availed himself of the op portunity to take few days rest and recreation. In due time, he will no doubt appear at his post, and work in his accustomed energetic manner to re-fill the so-called depleted treasury. At nine o'clock Wednesday morning, the leave of absence of the first batch of liberty men from the U. S. S. Pensacola expired. On embarking, some looked fresh and hearty, while nuiy showed signs of complete exhaustion. Hard riding, and hard drinking does not agree with men-of-war's men. It is hoped that the second lot of pleasure-seekers will take warning by the jaded appearance of their misguided shipmates, and take things generally in moderation. The Austin premises, corner of Merchant and Fort streets, is looming up and will be a credit to Honolulu when finished. There is lots of room for more such enterprising men as Mr. Campbell. Who of our capitalists will build for the use of our clerks, mechanics and laborers, such comfortable cottages as will rent at reasonable rates, and at the same time pay a good interest on the money invested. House rents are much too nigh for a large portion of our community. About eleven o'clock Thursday morning, two boys named respectively Hoffman Hartmann and Theg Teris, engaged as milkers on the Pawaa Dai ry, were severely gored by a furious bull. From enquiries we learn mat tne duh, Demg oi a xero- cious temperament, had hitherto been kept tied up, but was yesterday released by one of the above mentioned boys. The bull was then fed with wat er melon rinds in the presence of Hartmann. who on turning his back to procure more food, was fol lowed by the bull, knocked down and severely gored in the side, which resulted in three of his ribs being broken and his stomach severely injur ed. Teris, a Portuguese, attempted to help his friend, but was so severely injured that his body below the waist was paralysed. Had it not been for the timely assistance rendered by another Por tuguese helper, and the only person on the premi ses at the time, the result might have been fatal. The assistance of Dr. McGrew was obtained as soon as possible who dressed the wounds and alle viated the condition of the unfortunate victims. It would appear from the following it is becom ing fashionable to trace on's genealogy as far back as possible on the occasion of marriage. How is this for high! From the Sydaey Morning Uernlit of Saturday: "Gordon - Grant. February 22, 1833, by tho Rev. Dr. Steel, Arthur Hamilton, sec ond son of Sir W. H. Gordon, Bart., late of Camp belltown, to Selina Mary Violet (Totty), daughter of Mrs. M. A. Powell, and stepdaughter of M.

H. A. R. G. O. Horse Guards, and grand neice of the late Richard Harold Meade, Esq., Belle View, Castle Connell, Ireland." The Sydney Bulletin says the Hernld is mean enough to charge five shillings for the foregoing, which they with their customary good nature, print for nothing. The subjoined-, by the way, is clipped from another paper: "Bingwell Brown. On the 26th, at the residence of the bride's parents, by the Rev. Josephus Jungmore Bromley Wiggles wade, as sisted by the Rev.

" It was our lot one day last week to be one of a dozen (the thirteenth man was shut out for coming without his card) at a real turtle dinner. We em phasize the word "real" because we saw the am phibious animal moving in a back yard adjacent to the Pacific Comfk iai. Advebtiseb office two days before the soup was announced as being on the table. Our host was a gentleman well-known for his liberality in supplying the general public with free lunches for about nine consecutive months, bnt as all good things must come to an end, so did the free lunches, the donor, not being desirous of taking advantage of our convenient bankruptcy law. But tQ return to the subject, the great Turtle Hash. At the appointed hour, dinner was announced, and after partaking of the inevita ble sherry and bitters, our host saw his bachelor guests comfortably seated. This very select com pany (selected out of the hundreds of the free lunchers) comprised a Governor.an (ex-Attorney) General, a Diplomatic officer, an Author, a Phila delphia lawyer, lately dismissed from the Govern ment service, an expecta nt Collector-General, the most important member of the Legislature, a Queen street millionaire, and a very unworthy member of the Fourth estate. Street talk was abandoned for the once, and all the recognized laws and customs of society and etiquette were, violated, by every body partaking of throe or four plates of soup. But such soup and such wine are rarely tasted in any part of the world, hence the excuse. The next course consisted of turtle steaks and turtle balls. The writer at this important part of the proceed ings, considers it would be a breach of etiquette, were he to go into further particulars of the vari ous courses pursued and partaken of. Knowing that there were ladies within the spacious mansea the clever jokes and refined efforts of humor were somewhat curtailed. After a sitting of abont two hours, a resolution to adjourn to the veranda or drawing-room, as tastes might suggest, was unani mously carried, where each and every one of the satiated dozen were further regaled with strains of sweet music that was rendered in an irrefutably fascinating manner by the fair hostess. Parriages arrived, ab,qut fi,Te VT9 t00 30pn (time was going o merrily) but as Jehu would not wait and there was every indication of a storm brewing np the Valley, this pleasant evening came to a close. The efforts of our worthy host certainly made the Tur tle Hash aa successful as any one man's could, bmt in our opinion there was "a lady had a fiuger in the pie." TheStereoptic entertainment has been post poned. Five hundred goat skins were received this week from the islands. An account of Tuesday's reception at the Pal ace will be found in our By Authority column. The creditors of Lecn Wo who present their bills on or before Mondav will receive fiftv cents in the dollar. Caught at last. A Chinaman was arrested Thurs day for stabbing another Chinaman three years ago in Kapaa. The Lady Lampson finished discharging the last of her bricks Thursday, and is now rapidly filling up with sugar and rice. Rev. John K. Lewis. Chaplain of the U. S. S. S. Peusacola, will preach at St. Andrew's Pro Cathedral to-morrow morning. The Portuguese boy who was gored by the bull on Thusrday was much worse last night 'but '.he white foreigner was improviag. A gentleman complains of losing a good saddle that was shipped to him from Laupahoeho and be ing compelled to take an old and worn-out one in its place, or nothing. Some amusement was created ou the wharf when the Pensacola men were bcing shipped t-n board yesterday. Some of them couldn't step straight into the boat. A Pensacola sailor yesterday, who was overcome by the heat of the sun or by something else stretched himself out at full length on a mattrass in front of nopp's store and slept the sleep of the I inebriate. ' The schooner Ualeakala sailed Thursday with a very large boiler and a double effect for the new mill on the Amaulu plantation, better known by its former name the Spencer plantation, on Ha waii. The Rev. J. A. Cruzan, came into town Thurs day and officiated at the funeral of the late G. C. Siders. The funeral took place from the Queen's Hospital and the body was interred at the Nuuanu cemetery. Yesterday morniug His Excellency W. M. Gib son and His Excellency J. M. Kapena paid a visit to the U. S. S. S. Pensacola and were courteously received by Captain Erbtn and his officers. The usual salute accorded to ministers was fired. The C. R. Bishop will arrive this niorningj,from Kauai after calling at Waianae. She has been or dered by Messrs. T. R. Foster & Co. to tow to Honolulu the sloop Kaholomua that is now lying there water-logged. She is also to bring back the carpenters who have been building the new wharf at Waianae and which iu now completed. During the year extending from July 1, 1882 to July 1, 1833, there arrived in this Kingdom 4,240 Chinese males, and 37 females. Dur ing the same period the departures comprised 1,018 males, 37 females and 42 children. The total number of immigrants was 4, 340, and of emigrants 1,097; balance in favor immigration 3,243. Yesterday morning a little after 7 o'clock, a young Norwegian named An tone Anderson, fell from the roof of a building now in course of erec tion for Mr. G. W. Lincoln, while engaged in hoist ing up a timber from below. He landed head first on one of tlie floor joists, cutting a gaahn his'head about four inches long. He was taken to tho hos pital aud is now doing well. Grave doubts are being entertained about the safety of the American bark Spartan, now two months overdue from New York. There was shipped on board of her, a large quantity of Cumberland coal of which there is a dearth iu this market at the present time. Ironworkers are already begin ning to feel the effect of the soaroity of this the special kind of coal used by them. The regular monthly meeting of the Young Men's Christian Association was held in the large ' hall of their building on Thursday evening, when but few members were present owing to the ab sence of so large a number from town. The Vice President of the Association Mr. C. M. Cooke occupied the chair. Mr. E, C. Damon acting as Secretary in the absence of Mr. Lowrie. A few financial reports were read and adopted and but little other business was done. The Associations hope to give an entertainment j in the course of a month for the purpose of raising funds to enable them to make the necessary alter- ations in their building. ON MAUI. A Visit to Spreckelsville. After a rough and boisterous passage across the channel during which one little quantum of hu manity occupied attitudes suggestive of much hu mility we finally dropped anchor at Maalaca bay whose usually placid waters were being ruffled by the keen trade wind blowing across the oommons. Descending hastily, and it must be said selfishly, for each man jostled his neighbor in the endeavor to get first into the boats, so anxious were all, to leave the fragrant, fastidious Likelike, we were rowed ashere by the stalwart boat boys whose every dip of the oars into the sea brought the spray in drops of liquid diamonds over us. Maa laea can well feel proud of its wharf, one of the best landing places on the islands, far better than Hilo and only next to Mahukona, but in saying this we must perforce conclude. The picture of Maalaea passing before our mind's eye conjures up no pleasant memory of beautiful landscape with pleasant dwellings here and. there. A. bleak and desolate point on the rather, devoid of all redeem ing features, bare hills frowning down upon It, the radiations of a sun's heat lurid iu their inten sity whjoh even changes the keen breeze blowing in our faces. Only distant nature appears fair and beautiful. Views grand and magnificent rise up on every side calling us away to them. We there fore take our scats in the vehicle awaiting u,s, our good natured native Jehu skillfully ettiicate it from the maze of many QtUers, keeking passengers and once ont, we bowl along the road to Wailukn. Changing from boulders to gravel, from porous to the most heavy alluvial soil, our journey takes us past the richest soils probably in the Hawaiian Islands. Past canefields swaying in the biet'e ta fields newly planted or just cleared., the scooped out canons of West Maui, the Waikapu valley, the Iao Valley we sqou rach dur destination. Wai Juku we have no time to explore reserving that to some future occasion, we procure our horses and are off for Spreckelsville arriving there after a couple of hours canter. The hnbbub and bustle that mark this eynf.io enterprise on ordinary occasions teem to have de parted with the fiqiahinff oi the crop. The build ings appear desolate and forlorn which impression becomes strengthened upon entering them. Their interior presents a picture of cleanliness and order that many smaller, less complicated works can Id profitably copy. Everything seems in its place, the bright portions of the machinery have boon well cleaned, covered with rust preventives, and the most careful inspection even to tho tubes of the many boilers failed to show anything for the most careful expert to cavil at. All the buildings are receiving a coat of paint, which vastly improves their external appearance, the grounds have been cleared of debris and covered by a thick coat of velvety grass, the trees, which have been planted, at suitable intervals, seem' thrifty and eventually add much to the beauty of the pla.cfl, Networks of railroad tracks radiate, freun thefbuildings to all conceivable diction diminishing not only the cvosts of transportations to a minimum, but like wise consolidating the different interests repre sented. Standing on some eminence we have, a glo rious view of the whole, the varied green tints of growing cane with h.TO and there Jhe silvery sparkle of the water in the great diieh winding in 4n4 n it crooked wanderings of many miles, and finally lost to sight in the miuty apnra of dis tant ridges, the beautiful ultramarine of old ocean capped, bj little nantili ol foam begetting in na tb Jonsins for4iata.nt shores of "home sweet home," the l4ty peaka of distant Heleakala on one side and beautiful Wailnku on the other, all combine ia producing a symphony of coior that the eye de light to dwell pon. With much disinclination do we tear ourselves away, but as much more de mands our attention wc retrace our steps to the office and upon entering it the conviction seems to be strengthened that the system of order uml ca pable administration everywhere disccniablc bus here its fountain head, in tho person of tlie indi vidual quietly seated at his desk, probably en grossed in calculations affecting the still better disposition of the immense laboring force here em ployed. After lunch wc made mi excursion with Mr. Andrew Moore, the superintendent, to Kahu- lui. A rapid canter across a rather level Mretch of country, broken only here or there by low shifting hills of sand, soon brought us to our des tination, a collection of uncouth common build ings whose mongrel appearance, the few presenta ble looking ones hardly overshadow. And yet an immense business is here carried on. Here ves sels discharge their valuable cargoes ot supplies of all descriptions to be laden with tho sweet pro duct that the poorest man has it in his power to enjoy, so much for free trade, considering that all this interchange is carried on in American bot toms, an argument is presented for opponents of reciprocity to answer. Among the most promi inent buildings, the one oecnpiod as a store t-ceins to take the leading rank. There is nothing com parable to it on the Sand.vi. 'i I lands. From the traditional needle to an anchor or silver table ser vice can here bo purchased Mt prices that would bring tears to the eyes of our Honolulu'nicrcbants. Through the affability of Mr. Hopke who at the same time is acting U. S. Consul, we were con ducted through the whole establishment and had thus an opportunity of admiring the many novel ties, Kahului boasts a very good wharf, the Kilauea Hou was lying in the harbor at tho time presenting very graceful lines to the observers on shore, Tho beach around tho wharf is literally covered with articles of all descriptions, from pieces of sugar machinery await ing their final disposition to the timbers and hulls of old wrecks of by-gone times. People here have a sturdy, weather-beaten look. The vast enterprise distant a few miles gives employment to tho most of them and taking all into consideration the place has about it elements of of progress. But tinio is speeding on, the setting sun is gilding tho heavens in the west so we once more cross tho dunes and fields and arriving home partake of tho evening's meal. Then, as in western camps, without tho ap pendage of log fires, wo congregate in this instance around the evening lamp and sociability reigns su preme. Unvexed now is the mind of of our genial superintendent over troublesomo heated liearings or lost motion; calm and placid is tho brow of mn overseer who but lately demonstrated by the pow er of his muscle the superiority of Anglo-Saxon in- tellect over Mongolian egotism; our civil engineer no longer rubs his hand hard over his eyes in a quandary as to whether they or hU Instrument be out of collimatlon. No. Bogonc is dull care, wo are virtuous and consequently very happy. Tho banjoes and bass viols are brought out promising a rich treat of music and song, but it is finally de cided that we break up and givo onr Kahulnl friend a surprise. This time it is not on horseback but over the railroad track on tho hand car that we make our journey. The bass viol and tho banjoes aro tenderly held in one hand, the other alternately lift and lowers the propelling lover. 01 that ride; past hill and dale, over swltchos and curves some times nearly jumping tho track, our car dashes along with almost lightning rapidity propelled by ourselves. Tbe distance of four miles is made in less than fifteen minutes aud thankful that our destination is reached, we step off panting nnd per- spiring. Our friends are surprised but they soon recover from the shook, tho instrument are brought forth and to tho strains of a Strauss waltz each gentleman whirls his gentleman partner to its giddy and bewildering maze. And still tho pleasure of the gentler box is denied us. But time flies on, already tho hands point past midnight and bidding our friends farewell we depart on that dreaded homeward journey. Oh! that homeward journey on an up-hill grade. Slowly we eruwled along, tho miles never seeming to drag past in spite of all exertions but liko all thing seemingly interminable, the goal is finally reached nnd wo re-enter our rooms with mixed sensations of both pleasure and bodily discomfort. The trade winds hero blow very strong, and to one not properly inured, tho Journey to Haiku is exceedingly uncomfortable, still the nik-lits and surroundings well repay for tho trouble. We stopp ed there over night. The sugar mills in this vicin ity have nnishod their season s operations and in all of them repairs and changes are either coin on or else contemplated. The canes and fields at Ha makuapoko, under the efficient management of Mr. unaries Alexander, appear very thrifty compared to othure in tho neighborhood, in fact tho imncar- ance of tho whole plantation in all its different branches reflects favorably upon his. exeeutivo ability. Yte passed a pleasant evening attending a sociable at Mr. Dickey's. Not alone did friends meet frimi far and near, but sooial converse was interspersed by vocal and instrumental selections. Honolulans will be glad to hear that Mrs. Handford as usual exhibited her artistic taste, instrumen tally and vo cally, and it being three years sinoo your corres pondent neard ner last, he was agreeably surprised with the same skilful touch, the power of rendition and pine voice as of yore. Another ladv. to whom we owe ample apology for not recalling the name, rendered Mendelssohn's Fruhlingslied with much expression. Besides all this mental feast our host had been by no means idle as the speedy presenta tion oi uugo trays launn nrsi witn cakes, and after ward with ice cream soon testified. Ice cream and lots of it, besides its being of a most delicious fla vor. Surely your corresnon dent was exeee.lint'lv fortunate in thus tasting so much undiluted pleas- . 1 M . t , . .. . . utc aim ior rational enjoyment on tno whole, Jto has but seldom experienced so muoh in so short a stretch of time, Our homeward lournov was found far more en. joyable than tbe other, on this occasion no stiay wtnus almost stopped our progress, rather impell ing us along, being from behind; then again wo had no dense clouds of dust blinding our eyes. Wo reacnea wauuku in about three and a half hoim. This place is a veritable Sleepy Hollow, embower ed in its dense foliago, it contains within it all tho conditions for the evolution of a Rip Van Winkle, Still it is a little world in Itself, as elsewhere all nationalities elbow one another, each member of which is intont on his own individual advance ment. The growing canes here are ina"tufW-ut specimens of their kind and it is no wtoider thai with such soil and such management, the planta tion here has achieved a reputation thai few othen on the Sandwich Islands can oomr't"6 with. l A.
