La Hoihoi Ea, 1865.

Restoration Day.

Monday last, the 31st July, was the twenty-second Anniversary of the Restoration of the Hawaiian Flag by Rear Admiral Thomas, and as such was celebrated with becoming joyousness.

The day opened warm and sultry, but by nine o’clock the trades set in and before noon were blowing half a gale. Salutes were fired morning, noon and night, and the shipping and town were gaily dressed with bunting. The grounds at Huehue were arranged for the feast and accompanying services, accomodations having been prepared for two thousand persons. His Excellency M. Kekuanaoa was President of the day. At the hour appointed a prayer was offered by the Rev. H. H. Parker, of the Kawaiahao church, which was followed by singing; after which the orator of the day, the Hon. David Kalakaua, delivered an oration in the Hawaiian language. After more music and singing, the guests were invited to partake of the dinner, when appropriate sentiments were propose, and responses made by Prince W. C. Lunalilo, Hon. E. H. Allen, Chancellor of the Kingdom; the Second Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, R. G. Davis, Esq.; W. L. Green, Esq., H. B. M. Acting Commissioner and Consul General; A.
