Celebration of the birth of Queen Victoria, 1863.

[Found under: “NA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]

The Birthday of Victoria.—On Sunday of this past week, the 24th of May was the birthday of Queen Victoria, the Widow Queen of England, Ireland, and Scotland, and Empress of the Indias; because the birthday of the Alii falls on a Sunday, therefore the celebration was postponed to the following Monday. On that day, the flagpoles of Honolulu nei were decorated with the flags of all the nations. And the British haole and all the consuls of the foreign nations, and the other haole, visited to give their congratulations to the minister of England residing in the Royal court of this country. Present was the King and some of his Alii, the Supreme Court Judge, and the Kings Ministers and some other Government Officials.
