Honolulu, April 15th, 1863.
Sie: Since addressing to you my previous note of
this date, I receired a special command from
the King 10 r068 you I0tt can possibly spare
the time, in his name, to surrey the harbor, and par
ticularly the outward reefs and soundings contiguous
thereto, and to make such suggestions as you may
think conducive to the greater safety of vessels en
tering or leaving the harbor, by way of the placing of
Bew buoys, altering the position of the present, erec
tion of a light-house, or otherwise.
You are perhaps aware that although several sur
veys have been made, instances of vessels getting
tground are of frequent occurrence, and that several
instances hare occurred within the last few years of
vessels being totally lost on the reefs, within 6ight of
It "is His Majesty's belief that a new and more ex
act survey, under the direction of an officer of your
science and experience, would tend to prevent such
disasters to ships in future, and be, in reality, an im
portant service rendered to the ship-owners and in
surance offices of Great Britain, and of all other mari
Hi M ajesty, in the recent example of your suc
ceful efforts to save the American bark Florence
while on tire within his wafers, (tor which I have
had already the honor to thank you in His name,)
ticls proof that your natural disposition will leid
you, so lar as may be compatible with the other ex
igencies of your duty, to accede to his request, which
has for its object the greater safety of British, and of
all other shipping.
I am happy to have had another occasion to assure
you of the high respect with which
I have the honor to be. Sir,
Your most obdt. humble servant,

HoxoLCic, April, 1863f J
Sir: In reply to your letter of the 15th instant,
representing t- me that His Majesty the King was
verv desirous that I should make an examination of
tp channel leading int. the harbor of Honolulu, and
offer such suggestions in regard to its improvement,
by the erection of a light-house, placing of buoys
etc., as would lead to the greater facility of entering,
and to the safety of ships in general, 1 have the honor
to acquaint you that I have caused a pi an of the chan
nel to be nude, showing the soundings at different
stages of the tide, as likewise the depth to which its
bed is capable of being dredged, by means of a steam
dredging machine. On this plan, which I beg now
tc forward to you, I have also shown the positions I
would recommend for the erection of lights and the
placing of beacons.
The harbor itself is spacious, sufficiently so to ac
commodate over 200 sail of vessels properly moored,
and it is capable of being very much enlarged by
means of the dredge ; but the narrow channel lead
ing to it will not, at present, admit of the safe passage
of vessels drawing over 21 feet of water.
It appears to me, therefore, considering the increas
ing importance of these Islands, and looking to the
vast incre.isein the tonnage of vessels, both of war
and commerce, during late years, that it is a great
desideratum to deepen this channel, and from the ex
amination I have made. I entertain no doubt but
that at a moderate cost, and within a comparatively
shirt interval, probably one 6eason, this result might
be effected, and a channel of at least 26 feet at low
water, or 20 at high, be obtained, which would admit
the passage of the largest frigates and of most ships
of the line of the present day.
I do net limit the improvement to this depth ; I
think a g.cater may be obtained, but that the one I
have mentioned would be the result of dredging over
a comparatively limited space, as will be seen by the
plan, I repeat that I entertain no dou"St,
As regards the light-house, I take the liberty of
tnclosing the copy of a report addressed at their rS
quest to the Committee of the Cook Light-House
Fund, remarking that in place of the pil?s which in
that d.cumcnt I recommended to be driven on the
western bide of the channel, on a more critical exam-
V iiiation, I think that spar buoys would be prefera
ble. The positions of these buoys will be found
marked ou the plan.
I will merely add that press of time has precluded
the possibility of making a new plan of the inner har
bor. Its capabilities, however, are so well known,
n4 so easily ausceptible of improvement when the
leairements of commerce shall demand it, that the
oxission is of little or no importance. .
In conclusion,. may I request that you will convey
to Prince Kamehameha my acknowledgments for the
valuable assistance I have received from Mr. Pren
dergast. Civil Engineer, in the performance of this
work, which gentleman the Prince was kind enough
to attach t'i me for the occasion.
I hare the honor to remain. Sir,
Your very obedient servant,
Geo. Hexrt Richards.

The lantern should be elevated from SO to 50 feet

The 4th order is recommended.

To Capt. Geo. Hexrt Richards, Commanding U B.
M.'s Surveying Ship Hecate, in port.
Foreign' Office, April 20th, 1863.
Gextlemex : I have had the honor to receive
from Captain Richard, of H. B. M.'s ship Hecate, a
copy of his letter t. you of the 9th instant upon the
subject of the most eligible site for a light-h.iuac as a
monument to the late Captain James Cook ; and I
have the honor to inform you that in a letter, thisday
received, from the gallant Captain, amongst other
things, he says : In place of the piles
which in that document (meaning his letter to your
selves) I recommended to be driven on the western
side of the channel, on a more critical ex-mination, I
think that spar buoys would be preferable."
I have every confidence that you will give to all
the recommendations of Captain Richards the weigh:
due to his acknowledged science and great experi
ence. I take occasion to add that, having for many years
interested myself to promote a monument in memory
of Captain Cook, if you will publish your Resolutions
with a list of the subscribers, I shall immediately is
sue a circular to all the King's foreign agents to col
lect subscriptions, and to remit the amounts, to me,
for your use. -
If you erect on the eastern side of the harbor a
light-house in memory of Captain Coo, it is highly
probable that the subscribers for a monument to the
late good King, Kamehameha .III., (of whom I am
proud to be one,) will erect a similar light-house on
the western side ; but upon this subject, I must take
the orders of my Sovereign.
With much respect to you, collectively and indi
vidually, I have the honor to be, Gentlemen,
Your most obdt. humble servant,
R. C. Wtllie.
To Capt. Meek and the other Gentlemen forming the
Committee for a Monument to the late Capt. James

Britain and France, through their respective Repre-
sentitives at the King's Court, have simultaneously and
most respectfully invited His Majesty to adopt, for the
safety of life and property at sea, the Regulations
adopted by them, and that they are under the consid
eration of His Majesty's Law Advisers.
The Regulations are of great public interest, and
