As One.—In the peaceful town of the Kanilehua Rain of Hilo, on the pleasant night of Thursday, the 17th past, bound and joined together as one in the holy covenant of marriage, by Father Rev. T. Coan, were the Hon. Joseph Nawahi and Miss Emma A. Aii, two buds of that verdure are they. We received the kind invitation to rejoice together at the occasion, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we could not fulfill that wish. We received a portion of the “wedding cake,” and the entire staff of the press express all together our thrill for the two of them—may the heavens and earth be at peace, and all be content; may their path be covered in good fortune and may the two of them be ruled over by harmonious love, and upon everyone is the blessings of the Nation through the two of them, as we will have new Hon. Nawahis to do the work of the lahui in the future.
