Hawaiians in California, 1865.


Letter from California.—We have a letter from California written by L. H. Kapua, talking about them being overcome by calamity at the river of Tuolumne. Three of them died: Miss Hana Keinonui, Aarona Kealaia, and J. Huli. The number of them living at Indian Bar [Iniana Ba] is six; and these are their names. C. Kaaiahua, W. Kaauamo, Mele Kupakole, J. H. Kahawai, J. B. Kaaluea, and J. K. Kanahelewai. However, after that, one of them was saved, that being Wahinealoha. On the 29th of June, a small child of nine years old drowned.
