Remembering Jules Dudoit, 1866.

The Late Julius Dudoit, Esq.

Seldom does the historian of passing events have a sadder task to perform than when penning obituary notices of his contemporaries; but when the subject of his notice is a person of mark,—of innocent and upright character,—the victim of a dastardly assassin; it becomes a melancholy duty to lay a last mark of esteem upon the tomb of the outraged, especially when venerable for age, and honorable for past services. 694 more words

The Hawaiian flag in British waters, 1853.

A Maritime Novelty.—The arrival of the Hawaiian brig Magdalia, Capt. Taber, exhibited quite a Fourth of July novelty in our harbor. It was the first time that the royal flag of the far-off kingdom in the Pacific had ever been displayed in these waters, and a very good-looking flag it is, blending the main features of the American, British, and French national colors. 244 more words
