I have been asked where donations for this blog should be sent. I am not asking for money. I am just doing this blog on the side when time permits. What would be worthwhile is if you think the posts are worth anything to anyone you know, to pass it on, whether by reposting them electronically on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, or by email; or printing them and handing them off; or the old-fashioned way, by talking about them.
However, if you indeed want to make donations, please consider making them to the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, Library and Archives! They hold much of the newspapers that I get my information from. They also are the caretakers of journals and letters and books containing historical information that cannot be found anywhere else. Do not forget to designate that your gift is to go to the Library and Archives.

GOLDEN HAWAIIAN FLAGS.
We saw beautiful new Golden Hawaiian Flags at the jewelry store of Mr. T. Linday [Lindsay], on Fort Street, upland of the store of Mr. McInerny [Mr. Makinane]. It is most beautiful and reasonable in price. O those of Patriotic hearts, you must go get one at once, lest they run out first, for there are not many.

A Maritime Novelty.—The arrival of the Hawaiian brig Magdalia, Capt. Taber, exhibited quite a Fourth of July novelty in our harbor. It was the first time that the royal flag of the far-off kingdom in the Pacific had ever been displayed in these waters, and a very good-looking flag it is, blending the main features of the American, British, and French national colors. The union is a mixture of St. George’s cross with some other devices which we do not understand, and look at a casual view almost identical with that of the British flag, while the body of the Kanaka ensign shows eight stripes, alternately of white, blue, and red; and, as it flung its folds to the breeze it seemed an appropriate emblem of independence, and a fitting accompaniment of our own rejoicings on the glorious day we were celebrating.

THE HEAVENLY ONE, CHIEF JONAH KUHIO KALANIANAOLE AND THE AHAHUI KAMEHAMEHA.
With the departing of this life by the Heavenly One, Alii Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole as his spirit glided off to the world of eternal rest, he left behind monuments for the Hawaiian lahui to remember for many years to come.
During his lifetime, over the many years gone by, his good and upright character was always seen through the works that he carried out for the good of all. It is something familiar to all that knew him.
One of the monuments he left behind is the Ahahui Kamehameha. Continue reading
