A CHINESE MISSIONARY.—It is not generally known that we have amongst us a Chinaman, a professed convert to the Protestant religion, who goes about among his countrymen on the plantations and elsewhere, preaching and teaching his new-found faith. He intends, as we learn, to make the tour of Oahu, as he ha recently don on Hawaii, visiting in succession the different plantations where Chinamen are employed, exhorting and advising. His name is S. P. Ahiong. It is to be hoped that his well-meant endeavors will go far to enlighten his countrymen. His sermon at the Bethel Church last Sabbath evening was largely attended.
