Deer of Kamehameha V., 1867.

The King’s Deer:—This last week, the King’s deer were taken aboard the ship Lock-nar-Garr [Lochnagar ?] to his stables. At midday on this past Saturday, when the King’s stableman opened a stall where the deer were kept to give them water, come to find out, they got out and ran here and there and jumped into the ocean. They were caught; but while they were being caught, its antler was broken, and someone skilled from town tended to its injury. When the schooner Kamaile sails, they will be taken to Molokai.
