order. Though small, it is n rich treat to
wander through its alleys and gaze upon the
botanical trr.nures there displayed. The
Sandwich Islands are well represented,
Kalo, Koa, Ki, Ohia, Hala, and other orna
ments of your gardens nnd forests are here
in abundance. The magnificent ('actus
Triangularis, which blooms so richly in front
of Mr. O.'s residence, at Honolulu, has not
done well. I brought home a specimen which
grows finely, and is esteemed a great rarity,
though it has not yet bloomed. I trust it
will, for then it will bo a rival to the night
blooming Cereus of our conservatories,
which is valued more than line gold, and
parties given in honor of its flowering.
Ilaalilio met with some attention while
here. The autograph hunting ladies were
particularly desirous of obtaining his; but I
believe he did not feel much flattered by their
solicitations. lie was not used to being a
lion, and chafed somewhat under it. 1 le said
there were two men that he was afraid of
John Q,uiney Adams, and Daniel Webster.
The dark, piercing eye of the latter, he quail
ed before and well he might when its seru
tinzing gaze was full upon him. Hut enough
for this time. Yours faithfully,
We have been much gratified in examin
ing the beautiful billiard table lately put up
by our worthy townsman, "mine host' of the
Mansion House. It reflects great credit up
on the taste of the proprietor, Mr. F. AY.
Thompson, and no less upon the skill and in
genuity of the artisans, Messrs. Wood,
Roberts Cc Parke, It is really a superb
ailair Call all and sec it.
The mercantile business of Honolulu has
been unusually active within a few weeks
part. Wc counted eleven merchantmen in
our harbor, at once. A fact, we believe un
precedented in the commercial annals of this
We are much gratified in seeing su:?h val
uable productions as the statistical documents
on which Dr. R. C. Wyllie has bestowed
so much labor and attention, published here
and cordially commend it to the attention ol
our readers. The average passages from
Boston, we should judge to be too long if it
includes those only that co.no direct. We
presume- the average for them would fall ten
to fourteen days short of the 15:3 given
for the general average. We have also to
thank the Edit or of the Friend for his court
esy in sending us a file of his interesting pa
per, and h o shall take much pleasure in re
ciprocating the compliment.
The first number of our paoer U issued and
distributed as a specimen of it3 general plan,
and style of execution. Those who intend
favoring us with their subscriptions, will, we
trust, do so promptly, that the number of co
pies to be struck oil' may bo regulated.

EXTRACT Ol' A LETTER FROM TAHITI.
You have doubtless ere this heard of the
intrigues of Mr. Pritchard and others to ex
rito opposition on the part of the Chiefs of
some of our Districts, and that an engage
ment has taken place between the French
nnd the natives, in which, two Frenchmen
and six Indians were killed and some twenty
wounded. This ailair was near becoming
very serious. In all probability the Indians
would have been subdued, but at the expense
of the lives of many Frenchmen, when by a
hifky step I succeeded in restoring order
without much effusion of blood. Already a
large number of the people have returned to
their homes and the chiefs will come forward
to make their submission on Monday.
This will be the end of all the Knglish in
trigues ph, t,;s j,C0J)0 distrust them
hereafter; ami all that they Imvo done will
not prove a hindrance to the French Govern
ment but on the contrary, it is certain to re
sult in r good. We shall bo better able to
command and the people will be more sub
missive. J fence all is for the best. 1 would
observe to you in passing, tmt ., tnose whn
have declared for us have remained faithful.
This people are more steadfast in their fidel
ity, possessed of more courage and virtue
than they have received credit for. Notwith
standing all this, civilization kills them.
The Queen is still on board the British
Ketch. I foresee the moment when they will
not know what to do with her, and will put
her upon some island. They do not consid
er her sufficiently important to trouble them
selves on her account. Alter all, the conduct
of the British Agents has been somewhat
wanting in wisdom in regard to this matter.
The play is not worth the candle; also they
will not be sanctioned by their own govern
ment, and it is taking trouble without the
prospect of advantage. .
One word to our friends who may favor us
with their job printing. We- shall do all
work of that nature at the lowest rates we ran
afford; but it cannot be done; at our press n
the same terms that it has been done at the
Mission Pri'ss, for our rent, hire, cost of ma
terials, etc. are all higher than theirs. Tliev
printed work foreign to their office only as
an accomodation, and at barely reiuuncra
ing prices. We look to it as to a business
ind must either derive from it a reasonable
profit, or let it alone, and we think that any
reasonable person will be satisfied with our
charges, when he has learned the cost of the
work. At all events, we shall do our best, to
accommodate our fiiends, and we assure them
that our advance upon the cost of such jobs
at the rates in the United States, is but small
when compared with the advance here upon
goods, labor, and living in general, as thev
are at home.
Wo arc indebted to the columns of ti e Fiicnd, of
May 1st, for the following letter, which will ho read
with interest by those who are familiar with the his
tory of tl e Pitcaim Islanders:
Pitcaiiin's Island, Jan. 11, 1S11.
Rev. S. C. Damon, Sea. Chap.
Dear Sir, Your letter to mo dated Sept.
p, 131-3, and forwarded by Capt. Richmond,
is now in my possession, a'nd I am about to
MMnply with your wishes. The magistrate
or chief ruler is chosen yearly, by the peo
ple. On the first of Jan. all 'the "inhabitants
that are eligible to vote, (from Hi years old
-ind upward,) give in their votes for a magis
trate or counsellor. After the magistrate is
chos'.m,he has the privilege of choosing an as
sistant if he pleases. It is his duty to hear all
grievances, assemble the people together, to
stato the o'eect of the meeting, hear the com
plainant and the defendant, and commit the
case to a jury of seven persons; whateer
'he jury decide, Ik is to see it executed. As
regards religion. I am sorry to say it is very
low. Trade and traflic are nil the go at jre-v-nt.
There are seme who still regard reli
gi n; and family worship morning' and eve
ning is .still kept no by the ina'or part of the
'a nilie.4, and public, service twice on the Sabbath-day;
but, alas! pu!lic school and week
ly nvetiugs for perusing the scriptures, are
entirely given up, by the whole, inhabitants;
so I may safely say religion is on a decline,
dn the days of the venerable Mr. John Adams,
ill the duties were strictly regarded. () for
such a man as he was, to start us on afresh.
The next tiling you desire to know is tin; pro
duce of the Island; to which, I reply, vams,
sweet-potatoes, Irish ditto, onionsplantains,
corn, ke. ; fruits of various kinds, such as
cocoa-nuts, oranges, pine-apples, ke.; ani
mal food, hogs, goafs, ducks, fce. I men
tion these, in particular, that I may be able
to inform you of their different prices sav
vams, c; per bid.; sweet-potatoes, pep
ditto; Irish ditto, per ditto; onions, C,.l
per ditto; plantains, four bunches per dollar ;
cocoa-nuts, 2 per hundred. Fruits, no fix
ed price hogs and goats the same. Fowls,
3 per dozen. In exchange, cotton cloth,
(white and blue,) price twenty-five cents pet
yard; calicoes, of various kinds, price ac
cording to the quality; cotton shirts, both
coarse and fine, price according to the qual
ity; tea, fish-hooks and all kinds of cart hern
ware, knives of all kinds, soap, kc. No ves
sels are owned by the people. No proper
school-master, and no appointed minister, are
among us. As to your last request, I am not
able to inform you aright; but I believe the
government here is supported by the British
government. Write to mo as often as you
can, nnd believe me to be.
Your most obedient and
Arthur Qnvru., jr.
