“The Hawaiian,” a monthly journal, 1872.


AN ASSOCIATION OF GENTLEMEN, residents of these Islands, propose to issue, on Monday, of January 15th, 1872, the first number of


to be known as THE HAWAIIAN. The tone of the journal will be literary, and more particularly devoted to the dissemination of home literature, poetry, history and science. Its list of contributors embraces a large share of the talent of the Islands, and the projectors of the enterprise fell confident that they will be able to furnish food for pleasant thought as well as amusement, each month.

A column will be devoted to the lovers of chess, and the editor will be happy to receive communications on subjects of interest from any who may feel disposed to contribute.

Terms—For a single copy to any inter-island address, $1.50 per annum; foreign, $2.00 per annum, both payable in advance. Subscribers in the United States can remit two-cent U. S. postage stamps in payment of subscriptions.

Communications and subscriptions received at the office of the publishers, Messrs. BLACK & AULD, or P. O. box 110, Honolulu.  47-6t

The Newspaper “He Hawaii.” [The Hawaiian]—This is a new haole newspaper just published by the Printers of Black and Auld of this town, and it will continue to be published on the 15th of every month throughout the year. It is the same size as “Puowina” [Punchbowl], which rests the eternal rest; and it will be full of intelligent offerings, foreign and domestic news, and other matter found fit by the editors. We hope to see it progress.

[Although there are extant copies of “Punchbowl” held by the Hawaiian Historical Society, it seems that there are no surviving copies of “The Hawaiian”.]
