Eummons, I made my appearance before Judge Gis- 1
ff0M, accompanied by my lawyer.
On hearing the evidence on both sides the judge
decreed that I come pretty near up to what was re
quired by law, but I would exactly have hit it, if after
haili"? and getting no reply I should have knocked
0jf work, lowered away a boat, and sent a message on
board the General Williams that I was about cast
ing off her line from my stern mooring chains. Not
having taken this precaution, I was fined by his honor
1, and costs of court, amounting to about $13, and
ako had to pay my lawyer's fee of $20. Capt.'Cox,
cf the Magnolia, had instructed my friend, Capt.
Spencer, to take care of his interests for the damage
done his vessel, and as the suit went against me I
was looked to as the party to it. Capt. Miller of the
General Williams is apt to say what he thinks
when he gets " his back up," and as I have the
reputation of taking things easy, it may account for
Capt. Cox's preference to look to me for payment. I
dont think it exactly fair for Capt. Cox to have thrust
the business of collection upon Capt. Spencer, thereby
depriving some worthy counselor at law of his fee.
lie ought to have thought (that every trade must live,)
and done all he could to benefit his fellow creatures
and avoided placing Capt. Spencer, a friend of mine,
in a position antagonistic to me.
Now I maintain, Mr. Editor, I had complied with
the law, in regard to the Harbor Master, and when I
could not find him, performed his duties myself, in
order to save my property and that of others entrus
ted to my charge, and although, as it is, I may have
made money by not waiting till he ' turned up" I
think the expense I have been at an onerous tax, and
I would suggest, Mr. Editor, that in the season"
the present incumbent be permitted to employ depu
ties who will be known as such to the masters, and
who can attend to his duties on shipboard in event of
his absence, or that a shipmaster be allowed, in order
to protect his property, to do them for him.
With this plain statement of facts, wholly unem
bellished, and the sucfrestion, for which I make no
charge, I am, Yours respectfully.
Icii. Norton, Master of Ship Ocean.
the Editor of the Po-
lynesian, in his last, closes the discussion with you,
for want of room, but under cover of rectifying the
Hue Hawaii he publishes nearly a column of edito
rial wisdom, very instructing to a poor ignorant little
newspaper that cannot understand a word of English.
The Polynesian government organ could not confer
with the Hae Hawaii government orgari, settling
their little disputes in a private way, but he must
trumpet to the world a paragraph, an excellent one,
but toto coelo opposed to the whole tenor of his own.
I cannot but think this little skirmish is intended
to close the battle by attacking a column .of his own
allies and running a way from responsibility in a cloud
of dust of his own raising. Professing to dispute
inch by inch the claims of a handful of foreigners
over and beyond those of natives, he informs the little
Hae and all the world who read English that it is a
very bad policy to allow to the natives the right of
private opinion on any question that has been decided
in the Supreme Court. I confess I cannot see into
this very clearly for the dust. Methinks I discover
the germ of a gag law for foreigners while other
persuasives are to be used with natives to make them
hold their tongues; or does the editor mean to lock
tip the native brains and tongues allowing full scope
for the foreigners of our islands to enjoy their freedom
of opinion and speech unimpeded by law ? The Pol
ynesian is astniU.cd tkaUtho Hae " introduces the
" doctrine of private interpretation in regard to the
" decisions of the Supreme Court !' "Well, I am
astonished that the Polynesian makes any question
about the matter, and shall continue to be astonished
until he explains what he is really driving at.
The next paragraph of the editorial is upon treaties,
which might fit the Hae Hawaii or the Commercial
Advertiser if either of those papers had ever suggested
the thought of violating treaties in any way or shape
whatever. Another cloud of dust appears to be raised
by beating the air, so thick I find it impossible to see
through it. -
In conclusion the editor gives three reasons why he
wrote the article, the third of which is because we
know by experience how prone readers are to sup-
pose that every thing emanating from an editor ap
" pointed by the government but free to exercise his
c duties, has been seen and approved of by persons
' high in office." May be there are such readers,
Mr. Editor, I am not one. I never said that any line
in the Polynesian was seen and approved by persons
high in office. I never believed it either. I believe
you Mr. are free to exercise your duties in
your own way, that the government having seen and
approved you, placed you where you are, pay you,
and are importing a power press to the tune of $2000,
to enable you to speak freely whatever your inclina
tions dictate, and that is the reason, the only reason
why the world hold the government responsible for
the principles your paper advocates. You are as free
as the Hae Hawaii. It appears to me there are few
paragraphs extant, in newspaper lore, that give in so
few words so much truth as is found in the quotation
from the Hae Hawaii alluded to above. The writer,
whoever he may be, gives first the opinion of some
people, next the opinion of the greatest part of the
foreigners, and adds: "Therefore do not fall into
misapprehejision in the matter." That is to say.
.You? you hare heard both sides judge for yourselves.
And I venture to predict that before many months all
the dance-houses will be shut up as public nuisances,
the result of free discussion and the free exercise of
the right of private judgment. K.
Ma. Editor. I have attentively read the first ar
ticle in the Polynesian, signed "We the people of
England," as well as the comments on it in your
paper of the 29th, and though I do not coincMe with
you in all your strictures on this dance house ques
tion, I consider that your deductions as to the mean
ing of the writer in what he has to say about the
panel of the last January Term of Court are legiti
mately drawn. His first article was evidently written
and published without due consideration of its full
import. His apology in the last Polynesian was all
that could be expected. Finding that his first com
position was charged with toy much "grape," he
undertakes to mend the matter by saying what he
meant to have said before. The intention to amend
is a good one, but unfortunately his case is, as the
physicians say, "far gone," " and the explanation
makes it no better. Allow me to quote from him :
44 Now I don't pretend to know how the list of Jurors for the
term is selected in this country, but looking at the character of
the last one, I am inclined to suspect that there has been the
least touch of "moral sentiment" employed in the selection.
Seriously, the proportion of individuals well known to hold
peculiar views on such a question as this dance-house one, was
altogether larger than could possibly occur through any system
of chance. I must therefore, as a foreigner, protest against
my Consul giving up the privilege of selecting a jury to try me,
for if the system here is such that I am liable to be tried for my
life by a clique from whom I differ so entirelv in first principles,
sentiment and feeling, I should be afraid to stay in the country
there is no knowing how soon they might hang me."
The above is plain English, and does not require
the waste of six folios from the pen of its author to
explain the meaning. Any one with the commonsense
of an oyster can understand it. It means, if It means
anything, that the list of jurors at the last term of
court was unfairly chosen ; that it was not a fair
rcprescntation of the foreign population of Honolulu;
1 that it consisted mainly of a " down-east missionary
clique," (vide Polynesian Jan. 31,) got up expressly
to determine certain cases which it ms expected would
be brought forward. In the paragraph which I have
quoted, he most evidently implies some unfair dealing
in the matter on the part of the court. Now, until
the implied charge is made good, it is only common
law to maintain that the officers of the court are not
guiltj, but that the juries for the past year have been
legally chosen, and are a lair representation or the
foreign community of Honolulu. But if his insinua
tion has' any ground, it should be investigated, and
any officers guilty ot such doings should be exposed
if not removed.
V writer who aims to " post up" the public in the
matter of juries ought himself to be posted up" m
regard to the manner in which juries are chosen, be-
fore he makes grave charges. Ihe olhcers of the
Court are governed in chosmg juries by the law and
by such rules as the court may devise. In the whole
list of persons subject to jury duty, I can find but six
who are or ever were missionaries, or who are or ever
were connected in any way, shape, or manner with
missionaries nineteen out of every twenty being pro-
miscuous Americans. That we the People of Ex-
glaxd intended to refer to halt a dozen persons who
were so unfortunate as to be among those liable to
jury duty, is ridiculous. I thought as you appear to
have done, and as others did, that his shafts were
directed not so much to one or two missionaries on
the panel, as t i the entire community, mostly Ameri
cans, legally represented by the jury, and he can
find no fault with this interpretation of his meaning.
That a large majority of American residents m
Honolulu, are tainted with religious principle, or
moral sentiment' ' if vou lease, no one doubts. But
is that any reason why they should be dubbed a
" clique." Because nine-tenths of Americans, born
and educated in the United States, and perhaps nine
tenths of Americans resident in Honolulu, believe in
God Almighty, and choose to wTorship Him according
to their own creed, whether it be the Protestant,
Catholic, Mormon or Mahomedan faith, are the ju
ries legally chosen from among them to represent
in the Supreme Court of the kingdom to be de-
:ed as a down-east missionary clique,' by any
upstart, by and with the consent and aid of the gov
ernment journal supported in part by taxes on this
same " down-cast missionary clique."
"We the people of .Lxglaxd" mistake very
much the cut of Brother Jonathan's coat. It may
be old and seedy and smack somewhat of " moral
sentiment" and Salem witchcraft, but he has always
considered himself eccentric in these things, and it
would be about as well to let him alone. Too much
meddling with him brought out from him a famous
"Declaration" in 1776, in which document his
"moral sentiments," as well as his political senti
ments, stand in very bold relief: and too much med
flUno- with him here, mav brinsr out some other
"declaration" hardly imagined by those who didn't
mean " to rile his dander."

To the Editor of the Pacific Com. Advertiser.
Sin, I see tl&t a late correspondent of your's refers
to the fact that consent to va certain treaty -of this
Government with France wa3 extorted from us by
threats and actual violence, and argues that, under
the law of nations, the treaty is therefore now null
and void. It is no light matter to charge a govern
ment and a whole people with acting in grave matters,
in total ignorance of the first principles of the law of
nations and of all law. I would like, therefore, to
ask your correspondent, whether he has examined the
history of our diplomacy to see whether we have not
subsequently, without compulsion, ratified and re
consented to the extorted provisions.of our own accord ?
If so, we are bound, it seems to me, by. all the
principles of public as well as common law, beyond
the power of escape, to stand to our agreement. I
confess that I was once of your correspondent's opin
ion, but a brief examination satisfied me that the
ground was, at the time of that examination, untena
ble however it might have been at a prior period,
when to take advantage of it or not was entirely a
question of policy, a question of which I presumed
that those who understood the then existing circum
stances and complications, and took part therein
were better judges than I or any other more recent
comer could be.
If your correspondent has examined the matter and
arrived at a different conclusion from mine, I for one
should like to hear his reasons.
Yours, &c, Sector.
The packet Frances Palmer,' Capt. J. M. Green,
arrived about 3 o'clock, P. M., Jan. 30, after a long
passage of twenty-five days. During a gale from
the south, on the 15th ult , carried away head rails,
guys, &c., and on the 20th carried away mainmast,
just below the trestle-trees. The mainmast appears
on examination to be very much decayed. When it
broke, the wind was only blowing moderately.
The Palmer arrived at San Francisco on the 22d
December, making the passage in fourteen days. On
her return she sailed from San Francisco January 4,
with nineteen passengers. She brings no important
news either from the United States or Europe.
Dates are as follows: San Francisco, Jan. 2; New
York, Dec. 5; and London, Nov. 16.

California Coin. The bankers announce that on
and after the 2d day of J anuary , the ten dollar pieces
of California coinage will be received only by weight,
at the rate of eighteen dollars and twenty cents per
ounce. This will probably cause private coinage to
be at a discount in- San. Francisco, but at what rate
we are unable to say.

Very little news of importance has transpired since
the mailing of my last. Congress met on Monday,
the 1st.- The President's message was communicated
to both houses on Tuesday, but has not yet been read
in the House of Representatives, owing to the ex
tended contest over the motion to admit Whitfield as
Delegate from Kansas. Appearances indicate that
that contest will be decided in favor of Whitfield.
The message itself is but an ordinary document, a
considerable portion being devoted to the history cf
the anti-slavery agitation, attributing the defiance of
the South to the aggressions of the JNorth. This dis-
ouisition embraces a period from the cession of
Louisiana to the acquisition of Mexican territory.
He considers the geographical line annulled by the
acquisition of California, and essays the vindication
of the Kansas Act, attributing the origin of the revo
lutionary disorders in that territory to projects of in
tervention, deliberately arranged by certain members
of that Congress which enacted the law for the organ
ization of the territory.
