King Kalakaua has returned from his trip to the south where he had a very enjoyable time, and was treated with great distinction by the people of Los Angeles, San Diego and other cities. In the City of Angels his Ma jesty attended the opera and saw Miss Emma Juch in ''Carmen." At the close of the performance the King rose in his box and presented the beautiful young prima donna with a handsome bouquet in the cen ter of which nestled a diamond bmoch of eleerant design. On the following evening the King held a public reception which was a social success, and later attended a banquet of the California Club specially pre pared in his honor. His Majesty returned during this week to San Francisco and expressed bimsfllf as hicrhlv oleased with his Democratic candidate who was the barkentines. bv having a formal race from here to Honolulu.

The King expressed him self as highly pleased and gratified with his reception in the southern cities, but caught a bad cold in driving to an olive ranch fourteen nyles from Sunta Barbara, and this developed into a bilious fever Fhich obliged His Majesty to give p some pleasant excursions which ikd been planned. Col. : Macfar- lane says the King is very weak .and must cancel all engagements until his recovery. The physician lias ordered absolute quiet and for bidden the admission of any callers. From Pino Ridge, January 8th, the Chronicle announces that the 4,000 hostile Indians now menac ing the Nebraska and South Da kota frontiers, cun see four divi sions of U. S. troops which are soon to march upon them and des troy them if they do not surrender unconditionally. There are in the hostile camp Indians from all the reservations in Dakota. Chey ennes andArapahoes are there, but the Boule Sioux are believed to be the most vicious and wrere it not for their influence the others could soon be induced to lay down their arms. A revolution in Chile appears to be imminent, in fact an outbreak has occurred in Valparaiso. There are said to be three factione en gaged in strife for the balance of political power, one . headed by Senor Balmaceda, the President of Chili, another in tho interest of the Minister of Finance and the third is said to comprise tho fol lowers of a prominent general in the Chilian army. From Europe much suffering is reported in consequence of the ex treme seventy of the weather. Throughout the northern part of Germany, snow and ice are block ading the ports, and railway traffic is dreadfully impeded. A number of sailing vessels are ice bound in Elbe, and many are short of provi sions. 1 From Spain a furious gale is re ported along tho coast of Valencia, and a violent earthquake was ex perienced on tho 7th inst. at Granada. Austrian railroads are blocked up; even in Italy snow fell continuously for fifty hours in the neighborhood of Mantua aud sev eral persons lost their lives. At Fiume and Trieste, on the Adri atic, a storm is raging (8th inst.) with unprecedented severity; all theatres and places of amusement are closed and street cars stopped running. Much distress is felt in Paris, where the bodies of three persons frozen to death were picked up on the streets in one morning. In London all out-of-door trades have been suspended for seven weeks and a large number of per sons thrown out of employ, parade the streets to solicit the necessaries of life from the charitable. of the possibilities of San Diego and Los Angeles, his Majesty saia: "I was much impressed with the spirit of enterprise. displayed by the people there. I predict a great future for both places, particularly San Diego. I felt an especial interest in looking at its mag nificent harbor, as I belinvtf San Diego people contemplate entablithing steam communication with the islands. I feel that I ought to recommend to our Legis lature the propriety or wisdom of estab lishing trade relations with t?an Diego and Los Angeles. In driving to JMlwoou.Mr. Cooper's olive ranch, which is situated fourteen miles from Santa Barbara, I caught a had cold, which developed into a bilious fever and in consequence I had to forego many pleasant excursions tend ered to me." Chamberlain Macfarlaue said, in speaking of the King's condition : "His Majesty is still very weak, and by his physician's advice will cancel all engage ments until he is well again. Fortius reason he will be obliged to give up all thoughts of attending the inaugural ball and the visit to Mrs. E. B. Crocker, who had kindly tendered him the use of her home. The King's physician nas ordered absolute quiet and rest, and ho cannot on any condition see callers." The gentlemen who composed tha King's party on his trip were: Ad miral Brown, Lieutenant Blow of the Admiral's staff, ex-Senator Whit ney, Dr. McNulty, the King's Cham berlain, Colonel Macfarlane and the King's aid-de-camp, Colonel Baker. There appears to be no foundation for the rumors that the King will go to Washington. Those who are au thorized to speak for him say that he has no such intention. It is an nounced that the TJ. S. cruiser Charleston has been ordered to Mare Island to have her bottom scraped preparatory for a trip to Honolulu, and it is stated by Hawaiian Consul McKinley that the cruiser will be ready to sail on Jan. lGth, at which time the King will take his departure for home.

Ash- ford of Honolulu has arrived here to interview Foster, the Minister of Finance, on trade matters. Ashford alleges that the islands' trade rela tions with the United States have become unsatisfactory. He had an interview with Sanford Fleming to day and urged that the Pacific cable be laid bv way of Honolulu. The elections bill has been killed in the U. S. Senate by the votes of the Western Republican Senators combined with the Democrats. When the discussion was at its height Sen ator Stewart offered an amend ment taking up the silver bill which was carried, and it is believed that a free coinage bill will pass. Senator Stanford has been re elected to the TJ. S. Senate by the California Legislature. Stephen M. White receiveA the complimentary vote of the Democrats. Secretary Blaine has issued his ultimatum to Great Britain with regard to the sealing ques tion. He proposes arbitration of three points: First, how far from the islands shall the jurisdiction of the United States extend. Second, whether there shall be a close sea son. Third, what months shall be considered as the close season. The orange crop of Southern Cali fornia is estimated at 4,000 car loads as against 2,600 carloads last year.

A London despatch says that Lord Dunraven, owner of the" cutter Valkyrie, who challenged for the America cup in the spring of lbSD a German cruiser arrived at Jaluit, and its formidable appearance effectually silenced any protests from the downtrodden natives. A German agent told the island ers that they would be required to pay a yearly tax to him in copras. The amount of the tax is not known, but the agent allows only from J to 1 cent a pound of copras to the natives, while they have been accustomed to sell them for 1 and 1 cents.

If a challenge is sent to the New York Yacht Club the yachtmen expect it to come through one of the Scotland yacht clubs. Colonel North, the nitrate king, is believed to bo a possible challenger. If he does challenge, it is expected he will do so through a Scottish club. - The father of Jim Corbett has finally consented to a fight between his son and Peter Jackson, and the latter will take place in May.

Kolxsrt Du Rose, formerly guard in Saa Quentin Penitentiary, shot and killed his wife on the evening of The Shipping Bill. During the past week the House went into a committee of the whole on the shipping bill. The measure met at once with strong opposition from Southern members on the ground that it was a scheme to in discriminately subsidize vessels of every character in the foreign trade. Dingley of Maine made a forcible speech in favor of the bill, in which he stated that our country had but 12 J per cent, of the carrying trade, aud could reap a benefit from subsi dies far greater than any other na tion. The maximum expense of the bill for the first year,he stated,would be $2,000,000, of which from 300, 000 to 400,000 would come from postage and tonnage. Taking the the 7th inst., at 118 Ellis street.

The sloop Alert is undergoing thorough repairs at Mare Island. lor many months pant an intense rivalry has existed between the two crack barkentines S. N. Castle and Planter. They both ply between this city and Honolulu, and it has oc curred several times that they both sailed on the same day. Iuvariably a race ensued, and the S. N. Castle in these impromptn races has always distanced her rival. The captains and owners of both vessels intend to decide the relative sailing merits -of Who Is to Blame? Mr. Editor: Asa recent arrival the country and an ardent ad mirer of yonr picturesque city and delightful climate, I am rather sur prised to find that here and there tho general attractiveness of Hono lulu has been marred by what 1 cannot help ascribing to a very parsimonious economy. Thus, for instance, the sidewalk on the mauka side of King street, from Fort street almost to the Metropoli tan Meat Market, is in a most dis graceful and dilapidated condition, making it positively dangerous for pedestrians at night. Apart from the unsightlincss of the thing it is a marvel to me how the shop-keepers of that locality can be so blind to their own interests as to put up with it, the more so as their neigh bors opposite have a very fair side walk almost flush with the carriage road. I do not know upon whom devolves the responsibly of this state of affairs, but whether it be the owners or the lessees, surely, between them they might find it to their advantage to lay out a few dollars each towards making the improvement here suggested, be sides enhancing the value of their property, beautifying the city and earning the gratitude of the public at large.
