Honolulu, Jan. 1st, 1345.
: WILLIAM PATY,
Under the present imperfect Custom-
Ilouse regulations, it is impossible to ascer
tain the exact amount of specie which comes
into or leaves the country. Future legis
lation will, it is to be presumed, shortly
place this and other matters connected with
the Custom-House on a simple and concise
basis, which will afford correct statistics in
every particular of the imports, exports and
consumption of the whole Kingdom. At
present wc can arrive at only a tolerable
degree of certainty with regard to the port
of Honolulu alone, and perhaps Lahaina,
the returns from which we have not yot re
ceived. From the best data to which we
have access, wc add to Mr. Paty's Table of
exports, tho following approximate values of
specie and exchange derived from all sour
ces, which have left the Kingdom during the
Specie, mostly to China, Syd
ney and Mexico, - - $110,000 00
Exchange, to United States,
England, China, Valparaiso
and Mexico, - - 200,000 00

Total net amt. from all sources, receiv

In 1836, the imports exceeded those of
1844, by $G3,000. Since that period, how
ever, there has been a steady increase in
the value of native exports, also of actual
consumption of foreign goods. At the pre
sent time it amounts to not over four dollars
each at retail prices to an inhabitant through
out the kingdom. It is evident that this
amount can be readily quadrupled by due
attention to the resources of the country,
and by stimulating native industry by whole
some enactments. Under all the disadvan
tages which the country has labored, there
has been a steady and healthful increase of
national wealth and consequent prosperity,
but it has been extremely slow, compared
with what wc may in future expect, should
an enlightened land system be adopted, the
remains of predial servitude entirely abol
ished, and all Hawaiians permitted to hold
their estates in allodium.

The past month of December has been
considered as unusually cold. By reference
to Dr. Rooke's table, it will be found that
the range of thermometer has not been so
low as it sometimes is in that month. Feb
ruary was the coldest month of which wc
have any record, as well as a Hording the
widest range from 54 to 81 average 67
5$ degrees lower than the past cold
month. When the thermometer at Hono
lulu goes below 70, the change is very
perceptible to our good towns folks. Some
feel the cold pinch so much on such occa
sions, that they talk of erecting fire-places in
their houses. For our own part, we do not
know a more delightful climate than when
the range is from the lowest hero to 75 a
difference of but 22, taking it from the
lowest observation within our knowledge.
It is then cool and brncing, and woolen
clothes arc worn with comfort. The heat
of summer is very enervating to a northern
constitution, but wc doubt if the annals of
medical philosophy can point to a more

Society, Marquesas and Paumotu Groups,
and with the local views of the " establish
ment." It has ceased to bo tho official
journal, although it publishes all the edicts
and governmental news. English and French
advertisements have found their way into its
columns. A brisk commerce exists between
Tahiti and Valparaiso, via the Marquesas.
Many private buildings beside the govern
ment edifices have been erected; roads laid
out, bridges made; and Papci'to begins to
assume, under the auspices of the French
authorities, an improved appearance.
An unhappy feeling, it would appear,
continues to be kept alive between tho
French and English residents, resulting in
mutual recriminations, The chiefs remain
strongly encamped and firm in their policy.
A civil tribunal has been established, with
naval officers as judges, and Capt. Aubigny
