La Hoihoi Ea celebrated in North Kohala, 1865.

Restoration day in North Kohala, Hawaii.—We were informed by S. Kahookano of Kohala, Hawaii, about the commemoration on the 21st [31st] of July past and the putting on of a banquet there. Just as the aloha in the patriotic hearts of Hawaiian youths rummaging about here, so too did they exerted themselves among their belongings for something they could use to commemorate that honored day of ours. They observed that day just as we observed it in our royal town here. Not just the Hawaiians donated for that banquet, but the haole did as well, they being Rev. E. Bona [Elias Bond], Mika Wright [William J. Wright], and J. Willifong [J. Willfong]; it would seem as if the Hawaiians owe the haole much for their kindness.
