AN ASSOCIATION OF GENTLEMEN, residents of these Islands, propose to issue, on Monday, of January 15th, 1872, the first number of
A MONTHLY JOURNAL!
to be known as THE HAWAIIAN. The tone of the journal will be literary, and more particularly devoted to the dissemination of home literature, poetry, history and science. Its list of contributors embraces a large share of the talent of the Islands, and the projectors of the enterprise fell confident that they will be able to furnish food for pleasant thought as well as amusement, each month.
A column will be devoted to the lovers of chess, and the editor will be happy to receive communications on subjects of interest from any who may feel disposed to contribute.
Terms—For a single copy to any inter-island address, $1.50 per annum; foreign, $2.00 per annum, both payable in advance. Subscribers in the United States can remit two-cent U. S. postage stamps in payment of subscriptions.
Communications and subscriptions received at the office of the publishers, Messrs. BLACK & AULD, or P. O. box 110, Honolulu. 47-6t
