They expressed the highest apprecia
tion of the way in which they were en
tertained at Honolulu; in fact, there
was nothing left undone to make their
breief sojourn in the Hawaun islands
pleasant. Several copies of the Hawnan
Advertiser was received Here, giving ex
haustive and glowini: accounts of the
festivities, celebrated on account of the
visit of the Oregon bovs.. Almost the
entire reading space of the paper was
token up with matters pertaining to the
visiting soldiers, and the white paper
was printed with red and blue ink.
Captain Pickens writes that ihe peo
ple of Honolulu were extremely anxious
to be annexed to the United States,
and consider themselves genuine Amer
icans. Anionic other thinus in his letter,
Captain Pickens said if ary of the boys
should be crippled or tick, Ihe would at
once telegraph the fact from Manilla

Many interesting accounts and inci
dents of ihf ocean trio and the reception

and read in after years as a part of the
history of the expedition to Manilla.
Will Log ue writes that he has been rro-.
moted from the private ranks to clerk j

ference in quarters.
It will likely be a month before nay
