That the motto of this company shall be that of Andrew Jackson-- The Union, it must and shall be preserved. Resolved, That we do not feel, that by this act we shall lessen or abate the allegiance which we hold to our king, or in any other way prove recreant to our country. [Signed by forty names.] The balloting for officers was most spirited, and I am happy to say that Capt. Thomas Spencer was selected to fill the arduous duties of Captain, whilst the office of 1st Lieutenant fell upon the former very devoted Orderly-Sergeant of the Honolulu Rifles. At sunset, the gun was again trundled to the beach bank, and thirty-four more loud salvos disturbed the water-fowl of the beautiful Byron's Bay, during which the bunting was gathered, while the many loud hurrahs of the departing lookers — on in Venice evinced the satisfaction with which they had spent the fourth day of July, 1861, in Hilo. Yours truly, Kalaniopuu. --Honolulu (Hawaiian Islands) Commercial Advertiser, July 22.

It sailed from Hampton Roads Aug. 18, 1838, and on Jan. 26, 1839, was anchored opposite the mouth of the Rio Negro, Patagonia. The squadron, after touching at various groups of islands in the Pacific, visited New South Wales. Leaving Sydney in December (1839), important discoveries were made in the Antarctic regions. Lieutenant Wilkes then explored the Fiji and Hawaiian islands, and in 1841 visited the northwest coast of North America. He crossed the Pacific from San Francisco, Cal., and visited some of the islands of the Indian Archipelago, and thence sailed to the Cape of Good Hope and the island of St. Helena, and cast anchor in New York Harbor June 10, 1842.

, In the Beginning of the Age of Steam, was one prepared some ten years before, but thus presented for the first time to fill an emergency gap in the program. This was by Moses W. Mann, who gave it as the Cruise of the Merrimack. An abstract of this paper was then in press for the register under that title. Rosewell B. Lawrence, Esq., one of our vice-presidents, on November 16 entertained the society (as he has previously done) with an account of his vacation trip, this time to the Hawaiian Islands. Mr. Lawrence's interesting story was made the more vivid by numerous views, most of which were secured by his own camera and shown by Mr. Brayton. On December 21 another of our members, Mrs. Augusta Brigham, favored us with her story of Ten Soldier Brothers in the Revolution, an uncommon occurrence, and the story most interestingly told. At the January, or annual, meeting the reports were made and election of officers took place, prior to which former president John H. Hooper re
