Under lliu heading, "The Preservation of llio

Tho Hinio journal calls uion its renders to remem
ber thnt the llmo approaches fur thu election of
representatives. Wo translate: " It is clear that
in sessions of tho Legislature, that have passed, wo
havo had bad management. Tlio sort of repre

Wo have been urged by certain nowflMpcrs to ro

Lot us not heed this blind loader, but carefully
consider tho course that is for thu best interests of
the country. Who nro qualified to conduct our na

present prosperity and donrce of knowledge ? On
whom do we rely for relief when wo get into dilli
cultios bio deep for our own wits to solve ? It is
plnlu enough thnt the foreigner in such things is
our suerior, mid that we liavo been assisted by his
know ledge in the past and shall Ih) in thu future.
Without such assistance we shall not secure) tlio
prosperity of tho country. For us to disregard
the wisdom and tho experience of foreigner in tho
mnnngemont of public affairs, will Imi tantamount
to giving up our national independence. If for
eigners had dealt with us in tho manner that the
fae Aina tells us to dent Willi ourselves, our status
is a Government would have long since disap

A correspondent in the Vut A inu, writing from
liana, .Maui, otters himself to the voters of that
district ad a candidate tor thu Legislature. Ho
thus liys down his platform: "1st. lteiH3.1l tlio

tlrd. Forbid the importation of spirits. 4th. Ko
taxes 1111 fathers of families, nth. All Chinamen
who marry Hawaiian females to have their tails

tile people neit month and read before them the
speeches oil these six points which he will deliver
in the Assembly (if ho gets thero) and ho nays ho
will hold up his hand Iwforo God in tlio presence
of tho people, and be sworn by tho attendant cler
gyman to do his duty to his constituents.
Tho Vat Aina says : " Wo picked up a scrap of
piper in tlio street with theso words in English
written 011 it 'Tlio Ministerial Orgui recently nu
uounced that tho present Minister of the Interior

Tho Ktele I'oakoln lias a column editorial 011 tlio
Hiwaiiin lull. 1, much in tho same strain us Inst
week, and ropuatiug the utterances of the Adcer
titer 011 tho name subject, while adversely criticiz
ing the sermon of thu ltev. .Mr. Ilishop. Quoting
thnt gentleman's allusion to tho hula, and the bad
characters that arn sometimes elected as lleprc
sentntives, tho editor says: "Is this kind of talk

those claiming to bo pure and good; that nro in

Tho II. S. rovonuo ntoimnr Corirla lias recently
returned to San Francisco from n Not thorn cruise,
and from the Alia California wo tako the follow

"Tho C'oi iri'n lauded on St. Liwronco Island, hav
ing orders to investigate the wholesale starvation
of the natives. At the first vill.igo at which tlicv
lauded, nil were dead; so also at tlio second, whero
M dead bodies wore counted, nearly nil full-grown
males. At another place, W) persons, men, women
and children, wero dead. At the next settlement
12 dead bodies), nnd, nl tho following, SO were found.
All tho Inhabitants on tho north sldu of the island,
where whiskey-traders sold liquor, nro dead, not
0110 escaping. Tlio general starvation occurred two
yenrs ago last Winter. Since then tho presence of
tho Coricin in the Arctic has broken up this inhu
man whiskey trading. Tho empty wuiskoy kegs
wero seen strewn nil about. It Is reported that
these vessels wero mostly llttod out from Honolulu
by tho same firm who owned the schooner hdeta,
seized last year by the G'onrin. Tho total number

Cold and stormy winter set in, with ico nnd snow,

dogs nnd thou died of starvation,1'
Is this deplorable result in consequence of our

down from ancient times.'
A Hitter lettur appears in tlio t.lrlr, ovor the Big
nituru "A Hawaiian Jealous of Life," in which
aru repeatod many of the editor's idoas about tho
hula. Allusion is inndo to the " prophecy" of Arm
strong that the nation will dio out within fifty
years, which is supported by a Kuokmi writer, and
tho lottor goes on to say "That journal declares
thnt it is useless to largely expend thoGoverniuont
money for tho honlth of tho iieoplo, because they
cannot increase or exist whilo practicing evil.
Who brought those, evil practices hero ? Was it
auiulied good thnt was first brought, or was evil
brought also? I am astonished mid grieved nt
sach language. On careful retleutiou, it
Appuani that theso utterances, together with those
of the SvruutHY I'uehh, nro simply owing to over
bearing unite against and contempt of the redskins;
and nro clearly in opposition to the honor and dig
nity of tho Kiiui. It will bo well for tho
Hawaiian redskins to elect redskins ah Representa
tives in tho next Legislature, nnd such foreigners
as liavo fully proved their lovo for Hawiii."
Another writor in tho s.11110 papor says : "The
foreign newspapers, and ooinn other who are now
on the doctor's hands, nro ridiculing the hula in
tho Palace grounds, at being Ultby and obscene.
How about David when he saw the ark ofa Jhovah
borne before him, it la aald that ho throw off his
clothing and worshipped and began to leap and to
wrigglo and to dance before the Ark of the lord.
rJome shouted, 'he ia iuaane,' nnd others laughed
quietly, God, however, was pleased with the dan
cer, and visited with hi dtspleaure thoae who
ridloaled. How is this and what reward ia fitting

XffcU of Intoxicants.
Aa an arirumeut agaluat a " prohibitory law," a
recent writer in on of the Honolulu paper af
firmed that there had been a great falling off In
the population of Kaiuai on account of their
atrlngent prohibitory law. We had our doubt of
I liavo 110 word to say in behalf of tho libidinous
posturing, and impure nllusions, known ns tho
ancient liiilnhidn, sajs the editor of tho Ailrerliser,
but almo'it in tho same breath ho has accused tho
ltev. S. K. Hishop of slander, in saving thnt, "even
tho decrepit paganism of the land had lifted up
its leprous visa go to greet him (tho King) with tho
bestialities of tlio hiiltilinfa."
The hula irrt performed ns alluded to by the
Preachor; and fcui i nor tlmnlrr, ns this editor
knows without having to bo told so; and tho Im In
performed was an "orgy not to bo confounded"
unless by himself with "tho tnelti of praise and
recitations of achievement chanted in tho pre
sence of chiefs," nnd two of which ho quoteH ns
3 unpIcH of what ho alleges Imu been confounded
with tho hula. That such chants might liavo been
sung, I am no more disposed to doubt than that
tho school children sang nongs of welcome upon
tho same occasion ; but 1 feci assured it would be
as easy for one who has over seen and he ml tho
hula to confound with it the 0110 as tho other.
" Wh.it an otfunso to 11 Frenchman to confound
thu Marseillaise with tho can-can," ns tho Adrtr
User attempts to do tho irl and "chaunt" with
11 hula, danced by half nude females whoso every
motion nnd every word is indicative of lascivious
abandonment, calculated to snbnrdiuatu tho meit-
tal nnd moral nature of thu beholder to llio sway
of grovelling nnd debasing instinct!) which it is
tho study of civilization, and tho work of morality
and religion to correct, to govern, nnd to guide.
Again, and ou tho ovo of tho King's birthday,
tho A "in was ixirforraed, nnd in tho presence of
numerous spectators in tho palace grounds, among
whom was nil attache of tho V. C. Advertiser
office, possibly thero to again " transcribe " the
"outiHHiringH of ,1 simple nnd faithful hoarted
cople," and to prove to other simpletons, tho
purely epio character of tho performances, nnd
tho lofty morality inculcated bv tho animated
posturts and poetic, contortions of females dressed
above their thighs, and acting under tho leader
ship of tho moralist Ioane, moru vulgarly known
as tho "Hawaiian Dandy." Unfortunately de
cency forbids a trtbatiia translation of tho
"chaunts" sung to, and in time with tho gestures
of tho hula UHn this occasion. And in this parti
cular I nni thercfuro unable to rebut by tho actual
comparison of melts tho (xisitive inference of the
Adierttser, thnt nothing impure wns uttered. Per
haps tho abler sophister of thnt apor, trained to
the reconciliation of irrcconcilables, may bo able
toHiuooth tho wrinkle, or again bemoan the fnct
thnt there lire yet some who are unable to appre
ciate tho tune pootry of motion and vocalization
embodied in tho hula ; or be constrained again to
cry out in bitterness of heart, thnt if bucIi things
can be, "then is nil iioctio outixjurjng, nnd effu
sion of tho heart, Iwstial and pagan."
A Private Letter.

Will Gauhon, Esq.,
Dear Sir: I havo just received your Ictterof the
8th Inst., and suoh n Mar of laughter burat out
around mn when I road it that I wish you hnd
heard. How ia it possible, that people living in
this VJth century can believo the Cltiouiele't out
rageous account of slavery on the Sandwich
Island ? I have been 11 sugar-planter for tho hist
twenty year, living here Burruundod by native,
nnd employing them a contract laborers together
with Chinamen, South Sua Islanders and other. I
never carried a loaded pistol always Bleep with
open windows and door. My safe never ha been
broken open nor attempt made to break it. I
am much safer hero than in thu best hotels In San
Francisco. If you want to live niuoiig good peo
plo and havo kind neighbors, you will mid them
among tho native hero. If you have a sugar
mill In an out-of-llio-way part of ttie country, you
cannot afford to knock off whenever vour ueonlo
r.- .. - - .- ..--.
take a tanoy to attend aomo renal ; or omorwiso
leave you without warning ; therefore, it i found
necessary to have contract labor, and when yon
consider that savage from tho Gilbert Islanda
are not on a par with citizen of the United States,
yon will enMilv sea the necessity of having differ
ent law for different ueoplo. If the Chronicle, ha
slavery ou the brain, it U at liberty to publish the
fact. Certainly there i nothing that warrant
the name of slavery on the Sandwich Islands.
There are more oruahlng slaveries on the opposite
aide of the pond 1 mean the big monopolies, the
enslaving rale of the dollar for inatauce than
ever otlsied on these island. The slave-driver'
whip never was seen here. We never have known
what it Is to sell people, a you did only few
years ngo In tho United Hlntu.i. Wu ntver havo
raised "niggers" for Mile. Iet 11 whlto man lay
his hand on a native and within twenty-four hour's
he wilt bo fined nnd imprisoned, I have no time
to wrilo moru; my " slaves" nro waiting for inc. I

A venernble Cnpricornus, having removed a de

with tho courtly mnnners of a lord chamberlain.
Having been taught by his serious parents to
ncqulre information from nil, oven from the un
fortunate if exK'riouced, ho put nsido hi whistle

" Pudding ?" asked the kid. Tho aged one felt

"My honesty is above reproach," said the aged.
"So llrigham Young said," observed tho kid.
" I nm tho choice of tho ixaplc," said tho nged.
'' So was Ilarabbas," said tho kid.
"In nil high tiusls, I hnve never been found

"Too little," said tlio kid.
" My religious principles nro well settled," said
" And you nettled tho kanakas with certificate,"
said tho kid.
" My raco has nearly run out," said tho aged.
" So has your rope, said tho kid.
"Lifo is a desert," said tho aged.
"Then why don't you desert ?" snid tho kid.
Upon this the kid mounted 11 bicyclo nnd rodo
away, while the Venerable Capricornus in his
senile indignation, mado nn inconsequential at
tempt to butt down a stone wall which happened
to bo passing by. Failing in this, ho sagely ob
served : " In my lexicon of lifo thu only word is
tail;" nnd thereupon ho retired to tho side cliffs of
Punchbowl, and composed n, twenty-third volume
on "Ccgnnto Knees."

KniToit Piiesh : This being Court week at Wai

for there, going either by tho Likellke, or overland.
Wo passed a party a day or so ago bound for Wni

Collector of Customs, Assomor, tho agent of
Hoard of Education, also tho agent of the Hoard
Honlth. Wo hoar that nn agent to Ltku ac
knowledgements for labor in this district was also
with the party, but in passing n number of
distinguished individuals wo wero rather con
fused nnd did not notico thorn nil. During
tlio absence of our Shoritf. Mr. Dan. Porter has
charge of his business, which ho nttonds to ill a
manner that must sitisfy nil order-loving people,
but to the intense disgust of our Norwegian popu
lation, ouo of whom attempted to tako charge of
tho town, and soon found lumseli in mat "111.10K

Tlio Uktlite on Thursday last arrived here at
fivo o'clock in tho morning, from three to five
hours in advance of her usual time, and departed
shortly nfter noon. This is rushing things n little
too fast. Hilo people do quito a largo amount of
business by thu steamer, nnd would without doubt,
do mora if sho wero run "ou time" liko the steam
ers on the coast of Ameriot. Wo novor know just
when to oxcct her or whon sha will leave, nnd
people from tho plantations suffer a loss of time
waiting for her, thnt to thorn is n serious matter.
If Wilder A Co. wish to control the carrying trade
hero they must study the interest of tho planter
a little more, have a stated tlmo for the arrival
nnd departure of their steamer, or at leant a
specified time to lay hero. Tho schooner Twilight
has returned from Lnupahoehoo whero sho dis
charged a largo amount of freight for Mossrs.
Lidgato i Co. Sho will go to Pepekeo next
week to load sngar. We havo had soma real Hilo
weather of late. Tho rain has come down in tor
rents, and as u-.ual undor such circumstance the
road, or rather trails are out of order, to say the
least. We do not wish to find fault with our road
master. We suppose ho doe what he think best,
hut aa all men cannot think alike, we bog to dif
fer with him, and oak why he doe not finish his
work in any one place ? Hero and there wo find
a piece of good road that ha ha made joat
enough to restoro confidence in the faot that a
good road can bo made iu Hilo. This feeling of
confidence I short-lived and usually ends with
man, borso and confidence, all mixed up in a rue
of mud in some hole that ha not boon tilled up or
paved over. Tho Julia and Uulolo have arrived
to-day from Honolulu.
Wu aeo a la mo tbree-mastod soboouer outside
which is without doubt, tho KxesUior, now due
from the Hound with lumlxr. We suppose, ere

have arrived home, and we trust hia welcome was
so cordial aud sincere by all bis subject that the
question of race or anceatory wa not thought of.
