More on hula in California, 1862.

[Found under: “NOTES OF THE WEEK.”]

Small Business.—We learn that Mr. Charles H. Derby went over to San Francisco in the Comet, taking with him five kanakas and one wahine, for the purpose of opening an exhibition in that city. A man must be pretty hard up for employment to undertake an exhibition of these islanders and their disgusting dances in a civilized country and to a refined community.
