Near tragedy caused by Kamehameha V’s deer, 1868.

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS: Maui”]

Life saved from deer.—P. Kawelakawai of Kawela, Molokai wrote to us like this: On the 29th of April, I saw Kaukino, the one who barely survived. Here is the reason; one of the animals of our King, a deer set loose on his ranch, entered the sweet potato patch of at Kalamaula to eat the uala, and this man saw this and went to shoo it off; the animal rushed forward but he saw it coming, and it was but a few feet away and it caught him and thrust its antlers, whereupon he fell down, face thrown back. He was jabbed in the armpit, and the antler pierced through. His wife saw this happen and she brought him back to the houses and the man was very weak. We are relieved at the news following that letter that he has recovered.

[Found under: “NEWS OF HAWAII NEI.”]

MARRIED.—On Saturday evening, the first day of this month, James Auld was married to Miss Uwini Taihuna, the youngest daughter of Taihuna and Wahinekapu. There were many friends who went to see the wedding. There was a party at their house that evening, on Nuuanu Avenue, after they were joined by the gentle tie of marriage. With those who were filled with joy are the warm thoughts and hopes that they will be blessed from the people who print this paper.
