A BEAUTIFUL NUMBER.—The next issue of the native newspaper Kuokoa—the number for January 1, 1862,—which will appear on Monday next, will be ornamented with the HAWAIIAN FLAG, printed in colors—red, white and blue. As printed, it will afford a specimen of the typographic art, seldom seen in any country, and will be a curiosity worth mailing abroad. Indeed, we have never seen a national flag worked off in three colors in a newspaper. When to this we add, that the engravings were made and all the printing done by native Hawaiians, those who see the paper, with the Hawaiian Standard floating in it in colors, will participate with us in the pride we feel at the successful execution of this difficult job. The name of the young man, to whom we are mostly indebted for the engraving and successful completion of this word, is JAMES AULD, a Hawaiian, who has served his apprenticeship in our office.
—The Kuokoa is rapidly increasing in popularity with the natives, and now numbers nearly 3,000 subscribers. The present edition is about 3,500 copies. Copies can be had for 12½ cents each.
[The added information of James Auld here shows that it is important to not only get information from the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers, but the other language papers hold good information as well!]
