' Falling among the great Christian and universal . holidays, the birthday of Queen Kapiolani comfcs opportunely for its celebration: Fifty-two years ago this day Queen Kapiolani wa born. The times were then rude and the jxople un ' tutored, but fhe dawn of a new and Bet ter civilization had broken ujkii this new life which was destined to rise to honor and distinction among her race and na tion. .Since Her Majesty's birth mar vellous' changes have been worked in this count rvand the Queen is one of the best exemplars in her own life and per Hon of their potency and virtue. The general public recognition of the birth day of Her Majesty tliv'j JCapiolani is V4 f III-" VOT j. ' m v mats fo-her exalted station and personal i character. THE OUTLOOK, t ? Despite lthe- tendency to grumbling, ' -which has become chronic in this com tnuniiy, we see notliing to indicate any set-back to the progress of the country. Its resources are practically undeveloped, but what ha.s be"en Jone towards utilizing them has demonstrated the vast latent capabilities oi the soil. These Islands are on the highway of commerce be- tween theTacitic coast of North Amer ica ami ; the Australian colonies, and upon the 'completion of the Panama " canal, which is only a question of time and money, this port will assuredly be come the great navaj rendezvous, mer cantile and national, in the North Pa . cifie. Nature has marked it out for this high destiny, and it will be.next to im possible for any crassitude of administra tion to deprive it of this leading place as ' An international port, although of course it may not -be' adequately equipped for its growing and ultimate requirements. As a factOrJrtlre future development of the natural wealth of the Islands, and even in the forecast of the immediate future in a business jxnnt of view, this i not to be overlooked. It is calculated to'strengthen confidence ; and confidence in" the future is the very basis of pros perity. Although much unquestionably de jend3 upon the continuance of the Reci procity : Treaty with the United States, and although the Convention providing for its renewal has not as yet been ratified by the Senate, there is no cause to be """unduly exercUelbout it. The Admin istration is stronglv committed in favor of its -renewal, and as the Treaty was originally a measure of Republican inter national policy, there is reason to hoe that ratification will be effected during the present session. In such case it is to be expected that the House of Repre sentatives will originate and pass the needed legislation to vitalize it, should that branch of Congress decide that new legislation is needed in this case, which is simply a renewal or extension of an old Treaty, and imports ho new condi tions, fhe outlook in this case, there fore, is not calculated to cause unduu anxiety. Of course there is always an element of great uncertainty in matter political in the United States, and this element clearly is not wanting in the present case. Considerations of national policy, however, may turn the scale de cidedly in our favor. The outlook is also good in the matter of production. The yield of the last sugar crop is now-coming forward to market, it having been delayed ieyond the usual time owing to prudential busi ness considerations. The return prom ise to be satisfactory as to quantity and grade, but we regret that the world's market does not give promise of any de cided change for the better in prices. This is a contingency which it is impos sible to avoid, however, but so long as we have the virtual monopoly of the Coast suar market our plan'.ers are in a much better position than they would be with out it and had Jo ahip around the Horn to seek market.-. Improved machinery, economy in production ami handling, and prompt cash sales will do much to ulfset inert-used surar production in other places, although it lnut be con fessed that the bounty system' and other props to Jerman, French and Dutch sugar producers bring about an increased pressure oi competition, the ultimate effect of which cannot be foreseen. Nevertheless, tbe outlook for our planters is at least hopeful. In the smaller industries nearly every thing depend? upon the producers them selves. Our rice, coffee and fruit are admitted duty free on the Coast, and we have simply to increase their production to enlarge the importance of the Islands and add to their fixed wealth and float ing capital. Steady industry and frugal habits would go a long way towards that consummation, but these are only measurably found combined in this country. An attempt lias been made to create a new and profitable in dustry in the growth and preparation of ramie for market. Those interested in the venture are hopeful ; as are also those engaged in other new productive enterprises. What is needed in their case is co-operation and i;r.crous aid and encouragement. It is always dis-roui-aging to attempt to found new in dustries. The disappointments are many, but the burden would be light ened if neigh burly help were extended. On the whole, therefore, we concljde that the year '1880 closes with a fair amount of business done and a satisfac tory outlook for the coming year. Much depends upon the people them selves as to their future. Hearty co ojferation and mutual suport will go a long way to ensure a ' prosierous year, while jealousy and dissension will as certainly produce an opposite effect. Supreme Court. BKFOKK MR.

Application for an injunc tion to restrain the infringement of copy right. Messrs. L. A. Thurston and A. o C.

Tll4 Pcrforinaiicp nl the Hawaiian Opera House Lut .Mlit. The entertainment last evening ' at the Hawaiian Opera House was one I of the most successful ever criven in this city. In fact, we can recall no instance j where even one of the many professional j troupes that have visited this city from j time to time have approached the excel- I lence of this performance. The stage J settings were the most elaborate ever j witness at this theater, that of the ! second and third acts being as true to nature as mechanical skill would allow. Palgrave Mmpson s corned v of "A i Scrap of Paper" was the piece given, and the manner in which the amateurs who took part in the cast handled their respective parts elicited the warmest ex pressions of approval from the large audi ence, w hich filled the entire lower part of the house. His Majesty the King and the young Princes Kawananakoa, Kelii ahonui and Kalanianaole were present in the Royal box. Mr. J. F. Brown, as Prosper Cour mount, was a pleasant surprise to his friends, who, though they have wit- j nessed his efforts on similar occasions, j unite in saying that last night he eur- I pav-ed himself. His bit of by-play in the third act with Suzanne (Mrs. Strong) . was the neatest piece of acting we have seen for a long time. In fact, from his ; entree in the first act to the drop of the j curtain in the last, he was perfection. i Mrs. J. D. Strong, who took the part j of Mile. Suzanne de Ruseville, played i the character for all it was worth. Not a oint was missed, and in the second i act, where the Baron, bursting into : Prosper Courmant's room with the ex- j pectation f finding his wife, is thwarted j by Suzanne, who leads him to relieve j she alone is there, her acting was j superb. Again in the third act, where j she once more comes to the Baroness' j assistance, she displayed a wonderful j amount of talent, and fairly took the j house by storm. The character of Mathilde, interpreted j by Miss Rose Makee, was as charming a performance as one could wish to see. The character does not give much scope J tor the display of a perlormer s merits, but it was handled last night in a man ner that does great credit to the young lady, and we can safely say has rarely leen excelled, even by a professional. Miss King, as Mile. Zenobie, rendered the part in a charming manner. Her lerformance in the first act was all that could be desired, and the audience teiiti fied its keen approb:f;mi ' ' , r ' u frequent ap plause." in the succeeding two acts she had large scope for her abilities and car ried the audience with her throughout. Miss Parke, as Baroness Louise de la (jlaciere, gave a splendid rendering of the part. In the first act, where she en deavors to recover her letter from l'ros Ier, and in the second, where she goes into his room in "earch of it and is near ly discovered by her husband, her acting was superb, and was well received by the audience. . Pauline (Miss Atkinson), although a minor character, was well sustained, and the manner in which the young lad' carried her. part throughout the whole piece was excellent. Mr. II. W. Morse, in the character of Baron de la Glaciere, was, as usual, ad mirable. In the second act he exhibited a splendid piece of acting, and it would not be saying too much to state that the part could not have been placed in more capable or better hands. Everything lie undertakes he does well, and his per formance last night was no exception to the rule. Mr. F. P. Hastings as Brisemouche, landed proprietor and naturalist, looked and acted the part naturally. From first to last he never for one moment forgot the character he was portraying, and all his ioints were made with telling effect. Anatole (Mr. F. Bishop) was adelight ful little hit, and frequently convulsed the house with laughter by his droll wit ticisms. The gentleman did remarka bly well, and none but words of praise are heard for the manner in which he carried his part. Mr. J. M. Dowsett, as Baptiste, had a thankless part, but he played it for all it was worth. Arrival or a Labor Veel Ke ports tlie Total Loss of a Bark ami Irow n liij? of a Captain. The Hawaiian schooner Malolo, Cap tain J. B. Holland, arrived yesterday afternoon, twenty days from Aitutaki, South Pacific, having on board oti labor ers for the Pacific Navigation Company. Thirty of these' 'were from Aitutaki, twelve from Ronatonga and four from Rakahanja. The laborers are neatly dressed, and are well-built, able-bodied men. W. Smith is the Purser. The Chief Officer states that everything is quiet and jeaceful among the neighbor ing islands. He also mentions the re ported loss of the Swedish' bark Diana, Captain Meyer, said to have been wrecked about four months ago at Star buck. The vessel was laden with lum ber from Puget Sound, and was bound for Australia. Captain Threat, of the New Zealand trading schooner Sybil, fell from the deck of 1 is vessel during a cruise in the Manahiki "waters and was drowned. His bodv was recovered.

A CALIFORNIA -:o:- The Fine Exhibit Made at the Fair by the Fredericksburg Brewing' Co. One of thtf most novo! and uni.ju? exhibits of tho Mechanics Fair was that of the Fredericksburg Lai;er Brewing Co. It was in the form of a bower, the roof being formad of hoi vines, while around the suit's were arranged the various packages of the famous Fredericksburg bo'er. This company was the pioneer in the minufacture of lager on the Coast. Aftsr overcoming many obstacles they have succeeded in producing an export Lager NTot Surpassed Bv any other made in the United Stales. A proof of this is seen in tie fact that their goods" are s.dd as far East as Chicago, despite Eastern competition. How can they do this after.paying freight ovv 3.000 miles of railroad, it may bo asked. In the first place hops are better and cheaper here than in the East; again, California barley is the best grown in the Tinted Sfati s; but the chief reason is the superior quality of the brew. Aa tln-y use only the linest artesian water and tho very best material, aud have all the best and latest niac' inery, they are able to produce an article that DEFUCS c;omph:tltion. Their Export Lager is so perfect that it will keen any number of years in any climate, and is sold largely iu Mexico, Australia, tho Islands, South America, and in short throughout the Westtr-i H'nwrliei e. In three' years their output lias quadrupled; last year it amounted to 3;, 000 barrels, and ihis year will exceed that amount. Siuce writing the fib ive we learn that the Fredericksburg Brewing Co. was awarded the first prize, a silveil medal, " for fie best Export Laer," also the tirst prize, another silver medal, for the 'best hg Lager Beer." foiirn a I of Commerce, San Francisco. fHIIaving been appointed SOLE AGENTS for tho Hawaiian Islands for the above celebrated Brewing Comjpany, we are now prepared to till all orders for the trade aud family consumption at bv.drock figures. i JJJLJ T7 T-F- "V P.
