Smi Kosa, Octobrr 18lli, 1831.
EniTon Satuhoat I'iikss: In tho Satuiu
Iiat I'nuss of September 17tli, ii copied an
nrticlo of initio from The Caltornian of
tlinl month, nnd n local rcviowor'a notes
Accompany your publication of tho article
3ly ptirpoio n to nddreM what I havo to say
to what may ho accounted tho truth of his
tory iti connection with that article in rela
tion to the Annexation Schomo of 1851.
1. My critic finds fault with tho tillo of
tho articlo " Sohomea to Annex tho Sand
wich Islands." It wan not tho title I pot
to tho manuscript, nor am I in any way re
sponsible for it. That is a matter which
every printer of gumption understands
head lines and titles of nrticlcs are mainly
tho province of the editor or tho foreman
of tho printing room.
il.-l did not nndcrtako io giro tho full
and ' accurato history of Annexation
schomen concerning tho Inlands, Hnd I
dono ho my critic would haro learned two
things not to expose his own ignoranco
whilo endeavoring to maku mino appear;
and tho true factij, of which ho is grossly
H. Tho relationship of Queen Kalama in
Jin respect n fleets tho subject-tnatlor, and at
worst is (imply an immaterial error founded
on incorrect information.
1. Nor docs tho dilTcronco of personal
character and appearance lwtwcen 1'rinco
Alexander and lot cnt nny important
figure- in tho enso. Hut I will remark that
1 saw them both in 1851, and had two or
thrco longthy and very pleasant interviews
with them, together and separately. Thoy
woro then young mon, not corpulont as
they afterwards grow, and in what athletes
call "lino form;" and ) preferred Lot of tho
brothers, both an to nppvaratico and char
acter. Ho had tnoro regular features, lois
of tho thick lips and hoavy noso which
characterized Aloxandcr mid his sister
Victoria. Hut all this is a inntter of per
sonal fnncy nud not of absoluto fnct.
5. I did not say that Dr. Judd signed
nny petition for annexation. What 1 did
say, and it is nn incontrovertible fact, was,
that Dr. Judd wns " tho ablost advocate of
tho treaty," especially among tho chiefs.
G. Tho spelling of " I'akeo " for "I'aki,"
wns ndoptcd from a Missionary writer ; but
it will pu7.zlo my critic to show that tho
great chiof was tirat nnmed " Abuor '' by
7. I re-nssert, and can produco docu
mentary proofs lo snbstnntiato it, that
Minister Wylliodtd favor tho annexation to
tho Unitod States, nnd that ho was tho
most zoalons in tho Cabinet or Ministry,
nml in tho Privy Council, in promoting tho
project. Mr. Allen, who wns then Minister
of Kinanco, if living, knows tho facts. As
to Chief Justice Lee, I havo to say this :
At his home, in Dr. Ford's houso, in Hono
lulu, ho imparted to him tho loading points
of tho arguments which I then wroto from
Honolulu to the San Francisco Times and
Transcript, in regular correspondence, in
ndvocacy of annexation ; and I personally
know that ho was onn of Commissioner
Gregg's most valuod and inllnentinl coun
selors and helpers in tho business. I stale
tho fncta Iroin crsonnl knoivlcdgo: my
critic essays to oripoeo his mero idea or sup
position j for it is clear that ho was not
then in tho Islands, nnd that ho personally
knows nothing of tho matter.
8. I rofrainod from giving tnoro than a
cursory account of tho tronblo with Capt.
Panlot, nnd also of tho difliculty with tho
French Nixvnl force, because neither wns
material to tny subject. But doos my
hypercritical critic wish to bo under
stood as denying that it was tho " British
(lovorninont" which nctcd in tho matter;
and that it was instead Admiral Thomas,
tho servant, representative and accredited
ngont of that Government? Ono must
speak by tho card with so hair-Bplitting a
9. I re-assart that General Miller was
disliked by tho pcoplo genorally on nccount
of hit over bearing manners, nnd old re
adouts of Honolulu, at that time except,
perhnps Englishmen will bear mo out in
this. I am writing of what I personally
know thou aud thoro; my critic is caviliug
incroly to cavil.
10. Whether I blundered in correctly
spoiling tho narnos of the Hawaiian colohri
ties, or tho printer and proof-reader, where
in doos it affect tho factH as staled. Printers
always understand nnd overlook such
11. Against tho facts as thoy nctually
were, my critic puts his " graro doubts "
a very otl'onsivo jot harmloisand iutnngiblo
sort of " dead things, " with which ho np
po.irs to bo vastly ovor-stockod.
12. My critio assorts that that which I
hinted concerning Gcnoral Miller's condi
tion of mind and' health is "pure fiction. "
Very good. All I need to do is to placo
Woro you Mr. Editor, tho faithful copy of
tho survey of surgeons nnd physicians,
madt nt tho timo, of which tho following is
a faithful copy :
Honolulu, October 17th, 1854.
Ae, tho undersigned, physicians, etc,
having this day met in consultation to in.
quiro.iuto tho stato of health of II.B.M.'a
Coiisul-Gcnural, Wra, Miller, desiro to
innko tho following report;
That tho Cousnl-General ha lately loan
atifferiug from reiterated alarming attacks
of congestion of tho brain, threatening ap
oplcxy; that these attacks, as well as pro
crding instances of giddiness, pain iu the
head, aud other symptom, were invariably
brought 011 and aggravated by unduo ex
citement or application of the mind ; and
that tho last most alarming attacks of
congestion was brought, on by protracted
mental excitement growing out of his ofli
Vc, therefore, from tho foregoing causes,
considering that entire relief from mental
labor is a condition tine qua noa for tho
restoration of his health, havo come to the
unanimou conclusion that tho Consul.
General should bo advised to detach him.
iielf temporarily from tho duties of hi ofll
cial statiou for the period of ono year, and
recommended to Uko a sea voyage as soon
as practicable, aud warned to avoid all
cause which may tend to produco mental
or physical excitement.
V may also state that a cataract of the
right eyo of some standiist;, tho capacity of
which ha bem lately increasing, conjoined
with a diuiueaa of vision of the loft eye,
threatening cataract, renders our recotu
niemUtion inora positive.

It will bo observed that liVe many other
empirics, my critic, in this iutauco turned
doclor, imposei "calculus of Hie bladder"
on the old and doughty veteran, whilo tho
Board of r.nrgcons and physicians British,
rrcnc.li nnd American hnd, apparently, no
knowledgo of any such disorder to nlllict
or nffect him. It is n rolicf lo me, n no
donbt it wns to him, to thus turn from me

13. I stated that Princo Alexander hf.d
from tho first opposed tho Annexation
Schomo; hut it is true, nevertheless, thnt
nt last, tindor tho heavy prcssuro brought
tobcar upon him, nnd to plcaso tho old
King, ho assented to tho treaty, exactly as
I stilled in tho nrticlo tindor mention. I
had nbiolnto knowledgo of tho fact from
Mr. Gregg nnd from Princo Alexander
himself nt tho timo.
11. Tho "storynbout tho King's debauch,"
tho "champagno cock-tails, nnd tho final
bow of brandy " is nil true, iiotwithstand
ing it is "news to old residents of Hono
lulu " now. I wroto of events which oc
curred twenty-soven yenrs ago. It is likely
that not many of tho "old residents" of
that day now rcsido in Honolulu. Nor
would somo of tlntn hnvc known tho facts,
oveu had they resided thoro. I was in a
position to Irani them iu daily confi
dential intcrconrso with Mr. Grgg in re
lation to tho treaty negotiation ; on friendly
and pleasant social relations with Minister
Wyllio; occasionally givon opportunity of
talking with Alexander nnd Lot, John
Young, nnd other high chiefs; and n visitor
at the Pnlaco with Mr. Gregg on several
occasions (whero I was presented to Miss
Emma Ilooke, ns sho was then, nt n Iwnt);
and it wai my business and study to learn
of nil thnt wns going on in high places. I
havo still the documentary proofs of what
transpired, nnd do not indulge iu "fiction,"
ns my critic certainly does.
15. Tho error concerning Queen Emma
was upon inncctirncy of memory nnd in
formation by a friond who believed ho wns
correct in his statement. It is regretted.
But thero was no intention to wound
ccrtninly not to harm tho feelings or
reputation of that much respected Indy,
who has so long and so conspicuously prow d
liersolf worthy of tho lovo of tho people
who still mourn her kingly husband nnd
10. I cannot stoop to nny other notico
than to thank fortune thnt I know not my
critic, nny more than ho shows to know mo.

So far from reeking a purchaser for tho
Hawaiian Kingdom, the real object which
Kiug Katakaua had in view in making a
jouruey around tho world was to lny in a
now stock of subject. The Hawaiian
Island haro- ceased to produco uw sub
jects, nnd aa.-, tiio kock uow on hand 'is
rapidly disappearing, it is evident that un
less subject are imported in Urge uumbera
Kiug Kalakaua will' soon iind himself
reigning over a cemetery ,
The decline of population in tbe Hawaiian
Island is often quoted by philosopher a
nn illustration of tho theory that when two
races nro brought in contact tho inferior
raco melts away. When tho islands wero
discovered they wero thickly inhabited by
n rnco of simple and happy savages. Tho
Hawaiian woro no clothing, and their chief
occupations wero swimming in tho surf,
lying under tho shade of trees, nnd eating
slices of bread-fruit nnd intirmalado. Their
nmusoments wero murdnr nnd cannibalism,
nnd thoy prncticod them iu a light
hearted, joyous way which wns in keeping
with their innocence nnd simplicity. To
theso gcntlo snvages camo the missionaries,
who converted, clothed, nnd civilized them.
Tho hcalhon despotism of tho Kamehamc
has was changed into a constitutional
Christian monarchy, and tho world would
havo been filled with admiration at tho
fiucccKi of tho labors of tho missionaries
had it not been that ns soon ns tho iMand
'or had been converted, clothed, nnd civil
ized they began to disappear with alnrming
Thero aro two theories which hnvo been
offered in explanation of the melting nwny
of tho Hnwniians. It is said thnt tho New
England sailors nttached to whaling voscols
instructed tho innocent natives iu tho ele
ments of civilized vice, nnd thus prepared
tho way for their dcclino nnd dinppcnranco.
This is n popular theory, but it will not
bear tho toit of examination. Why should
tho American sailor havo exerted such n
devastating iulluonco upon tho Hawaiians
whon other tuitions hnvo found him com
paratively harmless ; and what roason havo
wo to nssumo that tho Hnwniians wero
capablo of boing instructed in nny novel
vices by tho sous of Connecticut nnd Mns
Fnchnsotts ? Sinco tho discovery of tho
Hnwniian Islands Atncricnn sailors hnvo
wholly disappeared, but it would be very
unkind to charge King Knlaknna's sub
jeets with tho decay of tho American mer
Tho other theory holds tho missionaries
responsible for tho unintentional destruction
of tho Hawniians. It is claimed that not
only did thoy discourage marringo by dress
ing tho nntivo men in stovc-pipo hats nnd
tho naiivo women in frightful black gowns,
modeled upon tho 11 ght g wn of civil
ization, but tho very fnct that tho natives
wero mndo to wear nny kind of clothes
insured their extinction. In n stato of
nudity nnd cnconnut-nil it did not hurt tho
Hnwniians to bo rained on, but when they
found themselves dressed in wet clothes,
which thoy persisted in woaring until thny
wero dried by tho sun, they caught colds
nnd developed pulmonary diseases with
astonishing rapidity nnd succoss. This
theory is certainly tnoro plnusiblo than tho
sailor theory, nnd every ono who hns scon
n civilized Hawaiian in his stovo-pipo hat
or in his black tncnl-bag will readily under
stand that when tho utiforttinnto nntivo
looks in a mirror ho or she must feel n
strong desiro to go into somo lonoly placo
nud thero lio down nnd dio.
Whatovor may bo tho cause, it is very
certain that in tho course ofn few years tho
Hawaiians will havo becotuo extinct, and
tho King will find himself without subjects.
His Majesty Kalakaua has determined to
mvo himself from an old ago of utter lone
liness by re-poopling his kingdom. Aftor n
thorough oxaminntion of tho nations of tho
Old World, ho hns decided thnt he will
supply himself with Portuguese subjects.
Somo timo ngo ho sout to tho Hnwniian
Islands an invuico of 1,000 Portuguese
from tho Azores, nnd was so well satisfied
with thorn that ho has just ordered 1,000
more, nud now expects at no distant day
to supply himsolf with what tradesmen
would call "a full liuo " of Portugucso
No King has cvor hitherto tried tho
experiment of providing himself with n now
set of snbjccts differing in rnre, language,
nnd religion from bis original subjects. If
King Knlaknun carries out his present plnn
nnwaii will bo added to tho family of
Latin nations, and wo shall sco a new
Brazil on a small scale iu tho Pacific. Ocean.
Tho most romnrknblo feature of tho reno
vated kingdom, however, will bo tho fact
that it will bo a Itoman Catholic State.
Tho labors of tho Protestntit mi'sionnrios
wilt thus finally result in tho spread of tho
Itoman Church. Had tho natives never
been couvortod to Protestantism and clothes
thoy would if tho second of tho two
theories abovo mentioned is truo nover
hnvo disappeared, nnd honco thero would
havo been no reason for tho introduction
of tho Portuguese. It wns a groit Pro
testant triumph to rencuo tho Hawniians
from cannibalism and paganism, but it
now seems as if tho Uoninu Catholics will
reap tbo fruit ot tho missionaries' labors.
There is, however, yet timo to prevent
tho threatened peopling of tho Hnwniian
Islands with Portugucso. Kiug Kalakaua,
who is roportod to havo no particular roli
giouB prejudices, is perfectly willing to
stock his kingdom with Protestants, pro
viding thoy can bo found. Why should ho
not invito tho Icelanders to como nud en
joy tho delicious climate of Hawaii ? Theso
curious poople, after having tried tho Arc
tio climate for a thousand years, havo dis
cuvcicd thnt it is cold, and nro ready to
abandon their inhospitable island. Kiug
Kalakaua cannot do butter than to trans
port thorn nil to tho Pacific, nud thus pro
vido himself with nil honest, industrious
pcoplo, and transform himself into a Scan
dinavian Prince. i. 1'. Times.
