Funeral of Konia, 1857.

The Funeral of Konia.

The obsequies of the late chiefess Konia were performed on Tuesday, and notwithstanding the sickness which has been so general prevented numbers of persons from attending, the aggregate of those collected to show their respect on the occasion was very large, whilst the crowd that thronged both sides of the streets, as the procession moved along, was so great as to require a strong force to preserve the line of march from the late residence of the deceased lady to the Royal cemetery, in which the coffin was placed. The religious services were performed by the Rev. Mr. Clark, and the ceremony was conducted throughout with a decorum and feeling which was remarked by all present.

Death of Laura Kanaholo Konia, 1857.

On this past 2nd, L. Konia, the widow of A. Paki, died at 50 years of age. She was an alii nui, and was a child of Kaoleioku, and Kalaniopuu was the father of Kaoleioku, an actual cousin of the father of Kamehameha I. Konia was a loving chiefess, and her friends and all the people of this archipelago are very saddened for there is no high chiefess in this land remaining; they have all gone. Her friends weep with greatly pained hearts.
