AN IMPORTANT ANNIVERSARY.
Today is the anniversary of the
joint guarantee by England and
France of the independence of the
Hawaiian Islands, and their recog
nition, aa a member of the family
The restoration, de facto, had
peen made by order of Admiral
' Thomas, on July 31st preceding.
"'On the 2Sth of November. 1343,
these Government shook hand3
over an agreement of strict neu
trality, which has since that time
been maintained. The surrender
to Lord Paulet was more than com
pensated for by this international
contract, for it removed for all
time any European complications.
Many of our readers will recal
the almost romantic accountgiven
by General J. F. B.J&rshall, of
his mission to Eland in 1S43.
Knowing that-'lex. Simpson, the
English vice-consul, and Lord
PauiVbad exclusively chartered a
Teseel for the Mexican Coast, in
order to reach London with the
least delay, General Marshall, un
der the direction of Dr. Judd and
his associates, got passage on the
vessel, under the pretext of making
a commercial trip. He crossed to
the Mexican coast, and over the
Mexican territory in the same con
veyance with Mr. Simpson;
reached New Orleans, hurried to
Boston, interviewed Daniel Web
ster, Secretary of State, and
pushed for London, where he
placed the case before the
British Cabinet, who at once de
clared it3 firm purpose to do jus
tice, and then did it. On the credit
side of that ledger account which
England keep3 with the world,
known in history as the 44 Glory
and shame of England," went down
a simple and touching act of jus
tice. We, who were children in
those days, remember the restora
tion by Lord Paulet, the measured
tread of the British marines a3 they
moved out to the desert plain, bar
ren and treeless ; the rattle of the
musketry salute ; the vast crowd of
natives ; the King standing motion
less, with his trusted advisors about
him they who had faithfully
guided him, and are now called
" wicked missionaries " by the na
tive press ; and finally, the salute
from the Admiral's ship, the Col
lingwood ; the thunder of the guns
of the stately three-decker as she
rose out of the foam, at her anchor
age in the outer roadstead. We
recall the courteous Admiral walk
ing about our streets: his simple
anecdotes to the children of the same
44 wicked missionaries " as he sat at
their frugal tea tables, and gave
abundant proof to the present Op
position press that he was only a
drivelling idiot, and a marine nin-com-poop,
by associating with such
people. We have often read the
private letters of tbi3 British Ad
miral, written to these men, which
expressed large charity, religious
devotion, and studiously impressed
on king and chiefs their rare for
tune in having advisors, such as
Judd, Richards, Armstrong, and
that grand old native, Haalilio.
But, then, there did not exist in
those days an Venlightened" na
tive press, to show up the weakness
of the old sailor, and tell him what
a fool he was making of himself.
It is to be regretted that, in the
prosperity of these islands, a statue
of the British Admiral has not
been erected in the public square
which bears his name. It would
serve to remind ourselves, and our
visitors, of an important event in
E0T7 CATS FALL.
"The question why cats fall on
their feet was solved on Wednesday
to the satisfaction of the French Aca
demy of Science. Maurice Levy gave
a mathematical demonstration that a
cat can by certain movements of its
bodv turn round In the air witnoui
pxternal assistance, his meorem is
that a natural system can pivot on
and by itself, if certain of ita points
have, in comparison with others,
such a degree of liberty a to describe
curves without hampering the move
ment of the other points of the sys
tem. A gymnast, writing to the
Temps, gives the same explanation.
Just as an acrobat, be says, turns a
somersault in the air by pressing his
chin on his breast and bis knees on
his thorax, thus making the center of
gravity pass from one point to an
other, so the cat, a bom acrobat, is

men, to solve the cat falling ques
tion, we give the solution, which
was acceptable to the French Aca
demy. There are men and women,
here, who have asked the question
since their childhood, and it has
remained unanswered. The se-

made some money, of course asks :

he was, by reading about physical

He has injured the cause of govern

A hungry, but implacable tramp,
who fed on poi and gunpowder,
when he could get it, and was
armed to the teeth with "sass" and
imprecations, approached a hum
ble mansion on Beretania street,
and respectfully asked for food. A
small boy, whose soul was full of
charity towards all men, listened,
and promptly brought from the
kitchen a basket, which he said
contained a feast fit for the most
particular gods. The joyful, but
still implacable tramp, who be
longed to a persuasion which never
voted or fought, retired to a shady
spot in Thomas square, and eagerly
opened the tempting basket, but
found it filled with pebbles, which
were covered with flour, and red
Thereupon he raised his eyes up
wards, and extended his convul

The difference between
tweedledee and tweedledum
is apparent the moment you
examine our stock of solid
silver ware and that sold in
other establishments. This is
a new line we have gone into
this season and the stock was
bought in San Francisco by
Mr. Hendry. Only the very
latest designs were selected
for our trade, and we believe
we have just what the people
want. The stock comprises
Sugar Shells, Butter Knives,
Soup and Gravy Ladles, Salad
and Fish Sets, Preserve and
Berry Spoons, Sugar Tongs,
Olive Spoons and Forks,
oaraine rorKs, iueai ana
Lettuce Forks, Pie Knives,
and forty-seven other articles
In fancy goods our five
o'clock tea stands will win the
admiration of the lady who
wishes to be in the fashionable
swim without going to a great
expense. We have a half
dozen very pretty patterns.
Banquet lamps, handsomer
than anything zzv have ever
shown before, will tempt you
to discard your electric lights
and go back to kerosene.
We have also a stock of use
ful and ornamental goods in
aluminum. Sleeve Links,
Combs that will not break,
Hair Pins with aluminum
filagree work that rivals silver
in brightness and is more ser
vicable because the trimmings
will not -tarnish. Handsome
flasks that hold water, whiskey
or root beer.
A full assortment of pocket
cutlery of the Wostenholm
make reached us by the
Alameda. The people who
have inquired of us for knives
during the past few weeks can
now be accommodated.

Chests and Refrigerators this

best preservers of fruits, meats
and vegetables we have ever
had. Some have compart
