Our readers will be interested in the brief
account which we give of the late examina
tion of the Lahainaluna Seminary. Not
withstanding individual bad examples among
the students, tho result is very credita-
,lc to the labors of the teachers. This is
an invaluable institution for these Islands and
has already been the means of promoting to
a very considerable extent, elementary ed
ucatiou among the people generally. Some
of the best educated natives graduated here.
The cause of education is one which lies
near the prosperity of this kingdom and its
friends cannot do better than to encourage
this and similar institutions. It is but one
of the many efforts which the American
Christians have so successfully made in be
half of these Islanders. To give it and oth
er matters connected with the school-system,
the attention which their importance de
mands, the entire labor of one efficient man,
zealous in the cause, and experienced in the
wants, capacities, and character of the in
habitants is required.
Late Newt krom Mexico. The Aoi. whale

.St. Lucas, spoke brig Cayuga 20 days sine . hound
from Laplaoo to Mazatlan, to take in specie for
China, touching at this port on her way. From her
it was learned that the duties on foreign goods im
ported into Mexico, had been reduced one half.
The William Ackers, hence, had arrived off Ma
zatlan no date given.
From Japan. The Fr. whaler Asia, which ar
rived at this port on Tuesday last, (28th ult.)
touched at two ports on Japan; the Japanese would
not allow them to whale or remain under any pretence
whatsoever offered them what supplies they were
in need of. Supplied them with wood, rice, &c. &c. ;
would not receive anything in return, although
money was tendered but ordered them off imme
Mormons at Tahiti, By a late letter thence, we
learn that the individuals of that faith, who were sent
out by Joe Smith, the prophet, to convert the Isles of the
South, meet with but little encouragement. They have
gained a few nominal followers only from the lower class
es of foreigners. Two Americans have been baptized.

not prosper, nor can the work of the government be done."
He also made some severe though very appropriate re
marks in regard to the bad conduct of some of the stu
dents, who were expelled and of two who were about to
h, pronouncing them the enemies of the institution, un
grateful to their teachers and worthy of the frowns of the
Gov. Voung, who was also present, manifested equal in
terest in the examination.
His Majesty dined with the Kev. Mr. Alexander du

For Foreign Affairs
Honolulu, Oahu, Haw aiian
Islands, Dec 20th. 1844
To the A aval Commanders
if the United States of America.
Uenllemen I avail myself of this method of di
recting your attention to tho printed copy of a late
correspondence which has taken place between this
department and George Brown Esquire, Commis
sioner of the United States to the court of the Ha
waiian Islands, the subject of w hich having became
acrimonious was referred by His Majusty in person
to His Excellency, the President, with a request
for the recall of Mr. Brown.
Pending the decision of the President of the Uni
ted States, I am commanded by His Majesty to ac
cord to Mr. Brown all the respect due to his rank
as the representative of the United States, but this,
I regret to say, Mr Brown neither consents to re
ceive or reciprocate.
Under theso circumstances it cannot bo supposed
that Naval Officers will be justified in assuming a
position which amounts to a pre-judgement of the
decision of their own government upon an impor
tant point already mado the subject of friendly ref
e rente to that government, thereby derogating
from the respect due to tho sovereignty of His Ha
waiian Majesty, acknow ledged by the United States
and solemnly guaranteed by the British and French
governments ; lessening the subordination of his
Majesty's subjects and the respect of foreigners res
ident here, and countenancing the belief that a na
tional misunderstanding exists with your govern
ment, which notwithstanding the position of the U.
S. Commissioner, is neither our view or our wish.
It is proper to inform you that tho National sa
lute has been withheld by tho U. S. Frigate Savan
nah, Capt. Armstrong and by tho United State."
Brig Perry, Commander Paine, on entering for tho
first time His Majesty's wateis, which is believed
to bo contrary to tho usage and comity of nations in
similar circumstances ; and it is tho object of this
circular to notify you of tho facts, lest by withhold
ing a courtesy which will always bo returned, you
give currency to sentiments which must be prejudi
cial to American and cannot but bo unaccepta
ble to both governments in their avowed determi
nation to cultivate the most amicable relations.
I have tho honor to be,
Gentlemen, your ob't servant.
