His Majesty took passage in the Steamer Kilatiea, on Monday last, arriving at the wharf witb characteristic promptness before the regular hour for the vessel'b departure. He received the usual salute from Punchbowl Battery, and the war ships Challenger and Pe terel manned their yards anil raised the Ha waiian il.tj; in his honor. He debarks at Ma. al.tea Bay, Maui, and will visit Wailukn, Ma- kawao, and I'lupalakua, returning in the Rtcaraer on Friday afternoon or evening. His Eoyal Highness Prince Leleioboku also took passage, intending to spend two weeks on Mo lokai. Thi temperance reform, which has been commenced under favorable auspices, seems to be one of the necessities of the time. If, as many believe, intcuierancc is spreading ainorn the native people, and commencing to sweep them off by thousands, like the measles epi demic in Fiji, threatening to decimate if not cxtrftgnish the remnant of a once powerful and numerous race, then humanity demands that some combined and systematic effort be made to check its ravages. No one should hesi tate to assist in the good work which has boen inaugaratod under royal auspices, in the same spirit, as if the effort wore to stay the meas les or the small-pox. The object in cither case is the sami', to alleviate the misory and chock tho decrease of the native race. But whilo wo heartily endorse every effort made to benefit the alorigines,wc fear the basis on which the present reform rests is not broad enough to accomplish permanent good. The platform of the Good Templar association total abstinence from all that intoxicates is the only safe one to adopt. If this could be introduced among the native people, much good might result therefrom. The r., How Hit per slotted aa Tata Aweuwi Irlctaof the Kingdom: OAJil Honolulu Ewa Waasraw... WakOaa.

Thk invitation of the French Consul for as sistance in lichalf of those who have been ren dered destitute by tho recent floods in the South of France, will, we doubt not, find a re sponse among our citizens. We, in this fa- I vored archijclago, arc eculiarly exempt from the disasters of floods and hurricanes, as well as the terrific earthquake disasters, such as have just been rocorded in Iceland and Central America. The Iceland disaster is told in our columns to-day, and is truly a dreadful calam ity. Those who prefer can make their con tribution! in produce, which will be disposed of and tho proceeds remitted as tho gifts of those sending them. Hawaiians as well as for eigners arc Included in the Consul's invitation, and will doubtless contribute their mites. A Sea Moksteb J. J. Harwood, Master of the British origan tine Fortunate, in dock at Liverpool, Inserts that whilst on his passage from the Sis Oraade. when in latitude S0 IS' North, aad lougkade 48 OV West, hit ship was struck by a large- fist whiah mad the vessel shake very much. Think ing the see had bean merely struck by the tail of - - ' he took bo further notice of the smattar ; but, after diachargiag cargo at Runcorn, aid aetahaf into the Canada half-tide dock, be found one of the plank cads in tee stem split, aad oa closer x aariaatioe be discovered thai a sword-fish had driven bis sword completely throoat th plank. The fish in its straggle broke the sword off level with tbe outside of tbe vessel, and by its attack -upen the ship lost nearly a feet ia length of the very dangerouj weapon with which It was armed. Then is bo deatt that this seauwhat singular uutuuiaiae tank alase arhea the veascl was struck ai Captain Harwood deeaob . On our fourth page will be found two inter esting articles showing the progress of steam in this ocean. Such ships as the Oceanic and Belgic of the new China line, and the C'ty of Peking and City of Tokio, of the China Mail company, are the class of vessels which in a few years will perform the carrying and pas senger traffic of this ocean. We must be pre pared for them when they come knocking at our door and seek an entrance. This can only be done by dredging the bar a few feet deeper only four feti will answer. And the expense of this, besides the first cost of a dredging steamer, such as is usee! on the Clyde, and in the Liverpool docks, will not be very great. Then, the largest merchant steamers as well as ironclad war sliiw can enter our port, and ad mirals will make Honolulu their headquarters ! Trot Cbaixengeb sails to-day at noon, homeward bound, via Hilo, Marquesas, Tahiti, Valparaiso and Montevideo, expecting to reach England in May next. During her cruise thus far she has voyaged 46,684 miles or more than twice the circumference of the globe. She has yet to traverse more than 18,000 miles before shf roaches home. Like tho D. S. Steamer Hasslcr, which conveyed Prof. Agassiz from New York to San Francisco in 1872 and 73, and obtained thousands of rare specimens from the deep sea, which have gone to enrich the museums of Harvard and tho Smithsonian In stitute, so the Challenger has secured and sent home several hundred boxes of specimens from the ocean and islands visited, which will add greatly to the knowledge heretofore had of tho inhabitants of sea and distant lands, and enrich the British museums, which obtain these speci mens. H lnle in tlic East Indies, or rather the Mollucca group, a large number of birds of paradise were obtained, some of them exceed ingly rare and of the most exquisite plumage. These were not dissected and stuffed, but put into alcohol (which we learn is the best way to preserve birds for transportation.) Regard ing the wingless birds of Hawaii, Prof. Thomp son informs us that wingless birds of the plo ver variety are found in almost every group in this ocean, and if the Hawaiian bird is like them, it is not rare. Wherever the ship stops, the search for specimens is renewed. So in our harbor, a species of fish has boen discov ered by the scientists of this vessel, which has been supposed to be extinct. This discovery alone is worth the slip's visit here, and should servo as a hint to naturalists among us to search our waters as well as our forests for novelties. During their short stay hero the officers of tho ship have received every attention, and will cany away with them very pleasant memories of Honolulu and her people. Sib Abthtb Coupon, tho newly-appointed Governor of Fiji, has ere this arrived at Le vuka, and entered on the duties of his office. An exchange, commenting on his departrue from Sydney says : " Ho has by no means a pleasant task before him, and will find his sub jects the dusky portion thereof at any-rate somewhat intractable. Multitudes of the na tives have died of the measles since the cession of the island, and the savages are possessed with the superstition that the plague was a punish ment on them for parting with their country. Sir Arthur Gordon will find it hard to estab lish anything like cordial relations with them. And, indeed, it is by no means certain but that, to some extent, their superstition has in it a faint flavor of truth. It would appear as though there really does exist some inscrutable law of nature which ordains that the savage shall dis appear as civilization marches onward. Con tact with white men ever seems to make sava ges more liable to disease, and less endued with courage and endurance. Sicknesses, pre viously unknown among them, break out and kill them off in hundreds after they have mixed with Europeans. This has been the case with the American Indians, tho Sandwich Island ers, with the Australian blacks who in the second year of the colonization of 8ydney died in hundreds from small-pox, a previously un known disease among them and with the Fi jian. The day will probably come when tho whole world will be white or whitey-brown ; and, following out the Darwin theory of devel opment, taking our ancestors to have been monkeys in the remote past, there will perhaps come a time when the last form of human or ganization will be tho European species of tho genus homo." The Friend for August lies before as, full, as usual, of interesting topics. It is a pleas ure to peruse a journal of this stamp, so very different in its tone from snmo we might name, whoso chief object seems to be to carp at oth ers and misrepresent facts, overlooking their own failings. In this respect, the Friend has always taken high ground. Among its choic est excerpts we clip the following from a pri vate letter written by our King to a friend in New York. The letter is dated " Iolani Palace, May 29, 1675," and reveals the warm-heart and kind spirit, which have always possessed its royal author, and which are among the se crets of his popularity. What is said in refer ence to the treaty, expresses the sentiment of all, natives and foreigners. " During my visit to the United States, more especially in the city of New York, I had the pleasure of mectinir you airain after the lapse of twenty-five yean. Our meeting was one of real eniovincnt to me, as recalling to memory the scenes of our oarly childhood. I assure you that I will ever bear in grateful rememb rance your kindness, as well ob tho gracious- ncss of the American people during my visit to your country. The free offering of a treaty of commercial reciprocity is another act of gra- ciousncss, as formerly you lifted us from tho bonds of heathenism, and now Irom national poverty. The moral benefit is as great aa we hope to obtain from the treaty, and binding more ttrmly the lnemlly relations existing be tween the two countries. The Hon. Mr. anil Mrs. Bishop leave for Europe by tho vessel which takes this letter, and will pass through your city. Please remember me to and . as well as to all tho good people of New lork, who were bo kind to us during our visit. 'Signed. Kalakada." Preserved Meats Th Advertiser of last week had quite an in teresting article on the manufacture of preser ved moats, recommending the establishment of factories in this group. This is one of the la tent industries which will somo day bo taken up, and, after a series of experiments, with per haps the failures that accompany every new en terprisc, will doubtless succeed. But it must be borne in mind that it requires a large capi talfrom one hundred to two hundred thou sand dollars to carry it on successfully, ow ing to tho distant markets, which are tho chief consumers. In Australia, where capital is abundant, interest low, and skilled workmen arc always to be found, many failures have occurred in thia line ot business, and tho busi ness has become demoralized. Still it appears to be growing, as shown by the consumption of preserved meats in England, which for nine years exhibits the following growth Tons. Valne. Tons.

Til, 200 1870- 3041 203,874 The Measles In FIJI. A statement is going the rounds of the American newspapers to tho purjKirt that fifty thousands of the natives of Fiji have died from the measles, during the early months of this year. We havo looked through our Fijian files, to ascertain whether or not, this state ment is exaggerated, but can find no estimate of the number who have died, except for tho district of Kandavu, where, out of a popula tion of 7,000, there havo been 2,100 deaths, mostly from tho epidemic. This is over ono third. Tho population of the whole group is estimated at 120,000, and if the deaths have been in the samo ratio throughout tho group as in Kandavu, the total must havo exceeded forty thousands. The following picture of tho destitution and misery in Fiji, as described by a correspondent of tho Levuka Times, ia a sad ono : "Tho measles arc making great ravages among the natives, and at tho present rate the per ccntage of deaths will bo very heavy. There is no doubt that if prompt and cnorgtic measures had been taken at the first, by ap pointing white men throughout each district with proper remedies and nourishment to ad minister to the poor fellows, a groat number would have been saved. The whole proceed ings from the introduction of the disease down to the present, seem to me to havo been cold blooded in the extreme, and it is not to be wondered at, that it has left an idea with the natives that it has been arranged to get them out of the way, so as to make room for tho now Governor and the large number of whites that he will bring with him or follow in his wake. To prove that many lives, aye I lc licve one-half of them, might have been saved in the way I have stated, I may mention that on one plantation in tho bay where there arc 52 Fiji and foreign laborers, no deaths have occurred, and this I attribute to the fact that as soon as the disease appears on any of the men, they are at once removed to a separate house Bet aside for a hospital, where they are attended to, and what is of more importance than all else, proper nourishment given to them when recovering. The consequence of this is that in a short time they recover. Had these men been left all huddled together, and the measles allowed to spread amongst them, the mortality would have been as heavy as among the local natives. I assert, without fear of contradiction, that one-half at least of the deaths are caused by the exhaustion that fol lows after the measles have left them." Tbe Bunker Hill Celebration. Boston took right hold of the Bunker Hill centennial. The telegraph reports that the entire body of State militia, Major-General B. F. Butler commanding, was reviewed by Gov ernor Gaston. The State troops were well re ceived, but the highest enthusiasm, it is said, was reserved for the visiting soldierly, espe cially the Philadelphia Regiment, the New York Seventh, the Maryland Fifth, and tbe Charleston Light Infantry. ,Tho review lasted over an hour, and it is estimated that 20,000 troops were in line. Among the distin guished guests were members of the Diploma tic Corps, Vice President Wilson, Generals Sherman, Burnside and Hawloy, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and Governors and Congressmen from several States. When the march for Charles town began, the streets were filled with a vast mass of people. Such a sight was never before witnessed in the city. Crossing the ld bridge into Charlestown, the procession passed under a triumphal arch bearing the honored names of Prescott, Knowl ton, Stark and Pomeroy, the heroes of Bunker Hill. Tho exercises at the nonumcnt wore begun at a very late hour, and were curtailed to about one-sixth of the original programme. General Chas. Dcvens was introduced as the orator of tho day. His oration was confined to a graphic description of the battle, and an eloquent appeal for the burial of all animosi ties engendered during the late war. S. J. Mercury. Temperance Tleettnc. On Sunday evening there was a very largo audience assembled at Kaumakapili Church to listen to an address from His Majesty, on tho subject of temperance reform. The room was uncomfortably crowded, while many were nnable to even get inside. The choir of tho Church sang during the evening several hymns appropriate to the occasion, and the tunes being familiar, the singing was joined in by the andiencc. His Majesty said in substance : " In response to the invitation of your Com mittee, and from an earnest desire for your welfare, I wish to speak to you this evening upon the evils of intemperance, knowing that the habit of using intoxication drinks is in creasing among you, and is one of the great causes of the decrease of the people. The principal compound of which liquor is com posed is alcohol, and alcohol by tho most emi nent scientific authorities, is placed high in the list of vegetable poison. He who takes to intoxicating drink siuTcrs from it tho same as from any other poison. But the liquor drank hore is made of a mixture which is worse even than alcohol. To show more clearly the ef fects and the diseases which the use of intoxi cating drinks brings, let mo call your atten tion to tho names of a fow who have died lately from illness produced by it. I speak of them because they were cases that came under my immediate observation. They were prom inent public men, aid you are' all familiar with their lives : Kahai, Kahanawai, Hoapili Ka auwai, Lilikalani, and many others. They all suffered from the effects of intemperance. It took years before Jley were aware of their maladies ; but it canio upon them sure and un erring. Men do not at first feel any of its evil consequences, and aro gradually allured until they become hclplra victims unable vo control thomselves, and slaves to all the passions en gendered by the downward course of tho drunkard, until they sink into a drunkard's grave. " There aro variois opinions as to the manner in which we should meet this evil. Some ad vocato total abstisuncc, others differ ; but whatever course you may pursue, knowing its effects, let me urge you to adhere to it faithfully. Nothirg destroys tho effect of our efforts for reform in this matter more than try ing to do too much Lot us proceed cautiously, but with firmness in all that wo undortako for this cause. I am an advocate of the cause of temperance, and kopo by precept and example to draw you fron tho evils of intemperance Kauikcanuli, bolovod by his people, uttered theso sentiments : " None but good men shall govern my people." I will follow him in this resolve, and would urge you, by all tho recollections of what he did for you and tho alohti you bore him, to reform. Now ia tho time." At the cloao of tho King's remarks, Mr. Johu E. Bush was called on, and Baid that he spoko in response to an invitation from tho Commit tee of arrangements, and as an advocate of tho good cause of temperance, in which His Ma jesty had volunteered to take the lead. Ho wished to support tho King in his efforts to Btay intompcrauoe, and to check tho decrcaao of tho people. His Majesty's presenco here, his advocacy of reform, and his example were evidences that ho was in earnest. He has re ferred you to many who havo fallen as victims of intemperance. He has Bhown the poisonous nature of alcohol and its villainous compounds, and has appealed to you to put thom away. He (the speaker) proposed also to recall in stances familiar to many, who had tiecn vic tims of intemperance, that his hearers might take warning and shun tho inevitable effects of intemperance. After instancing several noble characters and their untimely end, ho said: ' All theso statemerts are facts, familiar to roost of you. It is no fancy sketch, but tho history of prominent men whose god-like in tellects were destroyed by tho uso of intoxica ting drinks. Hore in this assembly this even ing aro witnesses who can verify all that I havo said. Thus, my friends, if from tho proofs which I have brought before you, it is mado clear to your minds that intemperance is an ovil and alcohol an enemy to mankind, why do you, young and old, persist in in its use ? Is it not time that we should look upon it with loathsome disgust, and horror ? The sanctity of our homes is destroyed through its agency. Tho very existence of this peoplo as a nation is endangered. Havo we sunk so low that wo cannot break from the fetters which this al luring evil has bourd ub ? I say, for tho sake of all that we hold dear, our homos, our families, all that makes a man what his Crea tor designed him ta be, let us now and forever abstain from tho use of intoxicating drinks. Bev. Mr. Kuaea closed the addresses, with a few pertinent remarks, in which ho appealed to tho audience to remember the counsel which they had this ovoning heard. Thoy were the words of truth and soberness, and ought not to bo forgotten. The meeting was efficiently presided over by S. B, Dole, Esq., but the au dience, during the latter part of the services became entirely too demonstrative. It may be very proper to stamp and cheer a speaker on some occasions, but on the Lord's day, and in his sanctuary too, it does appear altogether in decorous. Public opinion alone can correct this lack of good breeding. Arctic Exploration. It is altogether likely that within the next two yoare tho North Pole will bo found, or a latitude far higher than the 82 deg. 1 1 min. of Hall, or tho 82 deg. 3 min. of Payer and Wey precht, be attained. Two European nations are, it is weU known, fitting out Arctic expe ditions. The Germans will send two ships up the eastern coast of Greenland one to explore the coast and act as a reserve vessel, the other to press as far north as the ice will allow her, when a sled expedition with dogs or reindeer will endeavor to make its way to the Pole. The English expedition will consist of two ships under Capt. Nares, B. N., who recently commanded the Challenger in her scientific cruise. He was a mate under Mcdintock in in the Besolute's Arctic voyage, and so has experience. His work will be done under the supervision of a special commission of the Ad mirality, on which are McClintock and Sher rard Osborne, both eminent Arctic explorers. The English fleet will ascend the western (American) coast of Greenland, and attempt Smith's Sound, which the American explorers have shown pretty conclusively to be the easiest pathway to the Pole. One vessel will, probably, be left at Murchison Inlet as a re serve. The advices from the Arctic regions all unite in predicting a favorable season. Smith's Sound last year was free from ice, and such a current was running down aa could only bo produced by a long; reach of open water. Dundee whalers give it as an opinion that at least 88 degrees north can be reached with tho ships by starting early. Exchange. The South Paclflc Labor T raffle. In tho House of Lords, tho Earl of Carnar von, in moving the Becond reading of the bill for the regulation of the labor traffic in the Pacific, stated that the bill was for further carrying out the legislation that had taken place for the purpose of the regulation of what was termed the labor trade in the Pacific Is lands. Three years ago an Act was passed which included only the regulation and in spection of the ships which carried tho coolio laborers. Since that time the Fiji Islands had been added to tho British possessions, and a number of ships engaged in the transport of laborers which were not under tho protection of the Act, and thoy had conseqnontly become exposed to seizure and condemnation. This, to a great extent, led to the practice of vessels changing their flags. This bill would give the protection they required, and at the samo timo tend further to restrict the operations of ves sels, which under another guise were really engaged in tho slave trade. Tho bill therefore extended the license of tho ships trading to Fiji as well as the other islands of tho Pacific. It might lie necessary from time to timo further to amend and extend the Act. The labor trade, if unchecked, was productive of a great evil, but under proper regulations could bo carried on with great advantage. Tho Earl of Kim bcrlcy was glad to hear that tho legislation which he proposed three years ago had been productive of advantage, and had no objection to tho present bill, which still further carried out tl..- legislation he had initiated. He agreed that the Bound policy to be pursued was not to suppress, but to regulate this description of traffic in Polynesia. Lord Stanley, of Alderlcy, enquired whether there would be any objec tion to extend the protection to vessels carry ing laborers to the Sandwich Islands. The Earl of Carnarvon said that there was no sche dule in tho bill, but he wonld consider the mattor between this time and the committee. teller of the French gnifercrs. Honolulu. August 7th, 1875. Mil.

The amount which I at that timo forwarded to my country peoplo hag been so important, that I have been hesitating to impose anew upon the generosity of the in habitants of tho Hawaiian Islands, though well aware am I of the terrible disasters actually Btriking the south of France. However, somo kind members of tho com munity have spontaneously sent me their sub scriptions, so that I feel constrained to ap peal publicly to general benevolence. To this effect lists of subscription in favor of the suf ferers from floods in tho south of France, will bo open in tho following places : Store of H. M. Whitney, Pnblishcr Hawaiian Gazkttb; J. H.
