WEDNESDAY EVEG, MAY 27, 1857.
The departure of the Yankee, on Thursday last, left our har
bor entirely bare of foreign shipping, with the exception of
the French corvette Eurydice, and for one entire week it
has remained so. We have, therefore, no foreign arrival
or departures to record. A similar occurrence has not, we
believe, happened' for many years. In 1850, at this season,
there were seventeen foreign vessels in port, nearly all of which
were merchantmen. In 1854, there were but two. This dis
parity is tiomewhat remarkable. An old resident, speaking, the
other day, of the harbor, said that he had never seen it so bare
of shipping for eighteen years, excepting once, twelve years ago,
when for a day or two there was not a single mast to be seen in
the harbor not even the smallest coasting sloop or schooner.
It would seem that the operations of importers, now confined
principally to two or three foreign ports and countries, embraced
in earlier years a -wider range. A direct trade with small vessels
was carried on with almost every country of the Pacific. The
same goods still find consumers Iiere, but they are for the most
part received via the great market of San Francisco.
In the absence of shipping we have little to report concerning
ihe state of trade since our last review. We give but a few H do
tations. Beyond a few supplies furnished the Eurydicd, we
have heard of but few transactions and those of a trifling na t ire.
Auction sales of merchandise have also been very limited.
BREAD Sales of 10,000 lbs. California navy to the Eurydice
on private terms.
FLOUR Continues firm; sales of 25 barreU Oregon at $18
BARLEY Sales of 20 sks at 2Jc lb.
CHEESE Jobbing sales at 20i3!22c for American.
MATTING Chinese in good demand. Sales at $17fa$19
REAL ESTATE Some extensive auction sales cf real estate
have been held, and attracted considerable attention. Four
lots near the residence of A. B. Bates, Esq., in Nuuanu Valtey,
sold for $ 1,645. Each lot contained about seven tenths of an
acre. The front lot realised $550, and the rear lot $355. The
ep&cious house and grounds lately occupied by Capt. JV.mes
JUakee, in Nuuanu Valley, three miles out of town, sold for
$3,440, one third cash, purchased by the King. We hear it is
intended as a residence for the Queen Dowager. The large farm
and buildings, with cattle, sheep, and all appurtenances, in
Hoaiai, Pearl River, occupied by Capt Tate, sold for $5,900.

THURSDA Y MA Y 28.
The heat, dust and monotony of our tropic
summers have fairly set in, and threaten us "with
a term of quietness hardly equaled by that of any
former year. The whalers have taken their" last
barrel of provisions and shipped their last man
for the spring season and are now in their har
vest field, filling their capacious hulls ; transient
merchantmen shun the port aa though it were in
fected with the plague ; and our coasters idly lie
in port calking their decks, hardly caring if the
pitch does not dry for a fortnight under the
scorching sun, or if at sea their spankers saucily
flap under the lee of AYaianae, Molokai or Lanai,
while the breeze that ruffles the sea around the
point remains provokingly distant, and will rot
heed the cooing whistle of the helmsman.
Were it not for these almost intolerable doldrum
spells at sea, the idle denizens of our city would
lay their plans to spend at least a month in learn
ing, on the highlands of Hawaii, the skill of the
vayuero, or in measuring the rise and fall of the
lava lake at Kilauea, or in strolling over and en
joying the cool retreats of Makawao or Halea
kala, on Maui, or Ilanalei andWailua on Kauai.
The mere rumor that an intcr-island steamer
enterprise is on foot, comes like a cool gust of air
to the would-be traveler. Now in the hot sum
mer months is the right time to talk of and com
mence such an enterprise if we are to have one.
It was no doubt a due sense of the oppressiveness ,
of the weather and the wants of the people that
led a gentleman the other day to pledge $2500
towards the introduction of a steamer. And a
Hcore besides will bo found to stand with him
(provided the present weather continues) . The
want of a steamer keeps hundreds at home who
have never been twenty miles from Honolulu, but
who might then see and enjoy the unrivaled
Views of nature which exist on the other islands
of this group. A good steamer would draw more
visitors from abroad, and as travel would increase
thereby a hundred fold among the islands, so
would trade -necessarily increase, and every coaster
would receive the benefit of the impetus. But
not having a steamer at band, the crowd settle
down to the Siime dull l ratine of life which has
always been their lot, except where here and
there one musters up courage to brave the hor
rors of a week at sea.
Yet, notwithstanding the general dullness, it is
pleasant to notice the improvements and changes
going on in various parts of the town, which
show at least that there is some prosperity in the
place. New stores are being erected or old ones
remoddled on almost every corner, while a num
ber of dwellings have recently been erected. Yet
with all these improvements, rents continue high.
A correspondent in another column calls attention
to this matter of high rents, antl now that people
have little else to do than count up the cost of
living, it is well enough to inquire why rents are
so high. Good dwellings command from $500 to
$800 per annum, while it is almost impossible to
find a desirable dwelling for a mechanic at the
same rates as in other cities. - The rate of rent is
jisually based on the cost of the dwelling premises,
lany of the dwellings in Honolulu were erected
t the time of the California gold fever, when
lumber and labor were much higher than at pres
ent. Buildings are erected now at much less cost
than five years ago, and the rate of rent ought to
Sbe based on the present cost. Yet no theories can
jegulate rents. The public wants are the only
Regulator. If a house or store has a desirable lo
cation, it will always rent for more than one with
a less desirable site, though the former may have
cost the least sum.
' Speaking of dwellings reminds us of the trees
about the residences in town, which never looked
more beautiful. All kinds of trees and plants,
especially the algeroba, tutui, and pride of India,
hare gro-sjm more, owing to the abundant rains,
during the past three months than during the
previous fifteen. Many of the lookouts which
two or three years ago wero much frequented, aro
now entirely useless, the trees having stretched
up so mn.oh and shut off the sea view. The
algeroba is ens of the most valuable trees we have
-making a cool bliade and growing with great
rapidity, even in a dry locality. "We hope to see
more of there trees planted in every part of- the
town,- as well as on the other islands. Those
having algeroba seeds will do well to take care of
them, as they are not abundant. At the rate
that trees have been planted in town for the past
few years, Honolulu will be a "forest city"
twenty years hence. Even now some of the
dwelling enclosures resemble a tropical forest. It
is truly refreshing in a hot day to walk through
such premises as those of Capt. Snow, Mr. Mont
gomery or the Palace. The introduction of tTae
valley water has done much to give a charm to
our town. Its value can be estimated only by
cutting off the supply for a week or month.

Preasntittion of a Bible.
On Tuesday morning last, May 26, His Majesty
received the American Missionaries at the-Palace,
and during the interview- a beautiful Bible was
presented to him from tho American Bible Society.
Tht society have lately prepared an edition of the
Bible to oe pfiated to each of the reigning sove
reigns of the world. We have swu notices in late
American and European papers, of these presenta
tions, ine copy given to His Majesty was received
by the packet Morning Star, and is a large and
handsome book, bound in dark Morocco, with gilt
finish. It is moWi ; . rosewood box. Mr. S. N.
Castle made the presentation on the part ur w
Society, accompanying it with the following remarks :
"Mat it Please Your Majesty :i-By the request
of the Secretary of the American Bible Society, I
have the honor and the pleasure of presenting to
your Majesty a copy of the Holy Scriptures, the gift
of that noble institution, together with a letter in its
behalf from its revered and honored Secretary.
This Society is not altogether unknown to your
Majesty. It is an honored member of the great fam
ily of benevolent societies, whose object is to give the
Gospel to the whole race of man. The special mis
sion of this institution, in cooperation with other
kindred societies, i3 to carry the Word of God to
every nation and people in its own tonguethat all
may.be partakers of its blessings.
The British and Foreign Bible Society may be said
to stand at the head of this noble class of institutions.
Since its formation, the Scriptures have been trans
lated into one hundred and forty-eight languages
and dialects, one hundred and twenty-rone of which
were previously unknown, and twenty-five had ex
isted without an alphabet; -and more than forty
three millions of copies have been circulated amongst
not less than six hundred millions of people.
The errand of these Societies is one of peace and
good will to men. Bound, indeed, to universal con
quest, the triumph of the Bible is not that of arms.
Unlike the progress of earthly conquerors, its onward
march is heralded by no confused noise of tramp
ling and prancing of horses, no roar of artillery, no
clangor of arms, no groans of the wounded and
dying, no garments of warriors rolled in blood, but
it comes noislessly, winning its way to the heavt
Its triumph is the triumph of love.
The Bible is the harbinger of civil and social
blessings. Its teachings, received and obeyed, bring
joy and gladness into the family, the community,
the body politic. It makes good husbands and
wives, parents and children, brothers and sisters,
neighbors and friends, Kings and subjects. It is
adapted to all classes the high and low, the rich
and poor, the learned and the unlearned, the King
on his throne and the peasant in hL cottage. T.t
comes with blessings to all. Darkness, before it,
brightens into day. Civil and religious despotism
flee its approach, for it bears upon its pagos the rich
treasures of civil and religious liberty. It teaches
that rulers must be just, ruling in the fear of God;
and the reciprocal duty of obedience to righteous and
just laws, upon the part of the ruled. Of its power
to bless and renovate, your Majesty has occular
demonstration in the condition of your own people.
Scarcely has a generation passed away since the first
glimmering of its beams fell upon these. Isles,
shrouded in the long night of ages. What were
they then ? Barbarous, benighted, without any
kno-vrledge of the true God, without schools, or books,
or churches, with a despotic Government and priest
hood, with whose bloody rites mingled, at times, the
cries of human victims with gods upon whose altars
flowed their blood. What are they now ? Barbar
ism and darkness have fled away. The true God is
known and worshipped, schools, and books, and
churches, fill the land. Upon their altars smoke no
bloody sacrifices, but from them ascends the grateful
incense of prayer and praise to Him who has pro
claimed peace and good will to men. A constitu
tional Government and just laws have arisen for the
mutual benefit of King and people. How great the
change ! In vain shall we san the pages of history
to find its parallel, in the brief period of time which
has elapsed during its progress.
What has produced this change ? I answer, the
Bible. Yes, the Bible given . to this people by the
American Bible Society, and I digress to say that we
have with us, to-day, one of the honored surviving
patriarchs who has seen it all; yea, more, has aided
through it all; nor would I forget those female help
ers, who, thirty-eight years ago, in the vigor o
youth, embarked in an untried, and what was then
by many regarded as a hopeless enterprise, who for
sook the endearments of home and civilization, and,
with a moral courage not inferior to that physical
courage displayed on the fields of. Inkerman and
Balaclava, dared the dangers of a vast ocean, which
no civilized female had traversed before, that they
might do good to their race. Venerable men and
women, we will rejoice with you in the reward you
are receiving to-day. Pardon this digression, for it
seemed in harmony with the subject to refer to those
who had been largely instrumental in producing this
But, whilst such are the blessings which flow
from the Bible, it also says that sin is a reproach to
any people, and the nation and kingdom that will
not serve the Lord shall perish. It has temporal
blessings and temporal judgments. It brings life
and immortality to light. It reveals the only Savior
who can deliver from the wrath to come. It opens
up the only pathway of our fallen race to the rest of
the heavenly Jerusalem. To those who embrace and
obey it, its blessings are unspeakable. To those who
reject it, its denunciations are fearful.
Such, Sire, is the book which, in the name and on
behalf of the American Bible Society, I have the
honor of presenting to your Majesty to-day; and
permit me to add the assurance of the earnest
prayers of the donors, as well as of every Christian
heart, that it may be received as your guide; that,
practising its precepts in the administration of your
Government as well as private life, you may escape
its denunciations and participate in its blessings,
both in this life and that which is to come.
nis majesty's hetly.
The volume you present me in behalf of the Amer
ican Bible Society, -and the letter with which it is ac
companied, I receive with a mingled feeling of plea
sure and reverence. When I remember the moral il
lumination and the sense pf social propriety which
have spread throughout these islands, in proportion
as the Holy Scriptures have been circulated, I cannot
but admire and respect the human agency through
whicb-providence has effected its benign purpose.
But of all the 'members of the institution, there is
none with whom I could more gladly find myself in
communication than the Secretary, whose labors have
won for him a name among Christian philanthropists
which might excite a world to emulation.
I will not attempt to echo the tone of fervent ad
miration and gratitude with which you allude to the
happy changes effected by the dissemination of God's
Holy Word.. But from the position I occupy, the facts
meet me whichever way I turn my eyes. I see them
every day and every hour. I see principles taking

Expulsion of Mr Moneairral.
When we went to press last week, the case of Mr.
Mnnsarrat had taken no definite turn, though few
were disposed to doubt the result which would follow,
and which, so far as those residing in town is con
cerned, is generally known.( As chroniclers of pass
ing event3 we are bound to put on record the finale
of the act, that any who may be disposed at any
future period to re-enact the scenes, may know the
unfortunate result. '
On Wednesday, May 20th, Mr. Monsarrat was
given to understand that he would be allowed to re
main in Honolulu long enough to settle up his affairs,
and would for that purpose be granted his liberty on
parole, which, however, was declined. A compromise
of the affair, which was most earnestly sought by
his personal friends, beiDg thus defeated by himself,
it became necessary for his His Majesty to sentence
him, which was done at 2 o'clock on Thursday morn
ing. There were but two copies of the sentence, one
of which was given to Mr. M. and the other kept as
a record. It was very brief and simply sentenced the
prisoner to perpetual banishment, not to return to
this kingdom under penalty of death.
At half past three o'clock, Thursday morning, Mr.
Monsarrat was conducted by the Marshal and Sheriff
and a guard of forty soldiers to the steamer, which
had her steam up and ready for sea. On leaving the
palace, Mr. M. was told that resistance on Lb part
would be of no use, that the orders iued'in ; ogard
to him were peremptory, and if any attempt to escape
was made, he would have to be treated a3 a culprit.
He assured those having charge of him that lie ?iad
no idea of resisting, and would ycld to the superior
force placed over him.
The steamer, which had been armed with a twenty
four pounder and a guard of fifteen soldiers, proceeded
to the roadstead, to await the sailing of the Yankee.
The cannon on board was shotted, and orders had
been given to app'roach the Yankee and order her to
heave to. If this order was not obeyed, a shot was
to be fired across her bows; and if this did n:t fetch
her to, another shot was to be fired at her hull.
Capt. Smith, however, had been advised not to make
any resistance, but comply with whatever demands
might be made on him by the government.
Owing to the want of wind, the steamer was obliged
to return into the harbor and tow the Yankee out,
during which Mr. Monsarrat was left in the King's
large boat in charge of the Marshal and Sheriff. The
bark sailed about noon and on reaching the outer
buoy, the boat having Mr. M. pulled alongside and
he stepped on board. On entering the cabin he pro-;
tested in presence of Capt. Smith and the Agent, Mr.
Mitcheil, against being expelled from the kingdom by
a superior force which he could not resist. He en
tirely exonerated Capt. Smith and the owners of the
vessel from all cause of future liability. He said,
however, that he should not pay his passage over,
whereupon Mr. Parke paid the captain $80 for his
passage. .. .
We learn that His Majesty sent off one hundred

not say he was sent off without means. This he de

returned to port.
Thus has ended, at least for the present, this most
unfortunate affair. It will teach a lesson to all who
may hear of it, and it will be well if all lay its moral

fully grown, considered the best produced on ths
Hawaii. A correspondent at Kona, under date
of May 12, writes : ' We have had fine weather thij
spring, for fruit growing. Coffee looks well, but I da
not think we will have as large a crop as last year.
Oranges will be late; but we will have a good crop.
The trees look well and nourishing. Nothing froa
Pele, except a little Fhake occasionally. Week befoj
last we had quite a hard one. Rev. T. E. Taylor

The sch. T. H. Allen, is looked for daily with Saa
Francisco dates to May 1, and the Fanny Major
with dates from that port to May 12th or 15th. The
latter vessel has been absent 51 days to-day. On her
previous trip she was absent 48 days,
from New York are now fully due.
From Tahiti. The American brig Colorado, 20
days from Tahiti, touched at Lahaina on Friday last,
bound for San Francisco with a cargo of 430,000
oranges. Reported one sperm whaler inside aud one
outside the harbor. Markets at Tahiti are very dull,
not realizing cost on goods taken from San Francisco.
5SiP II. R. H. Prince Kamehameha was at Lahaina
on Tuesday last, and may be expected to return to
Honolulu this morning in the Maria.
EST" The farmers on East Maui, commenced har
vesting their crops on Monday last. The early grain
appears fair, and the weather fine. Reports, hor

the step, breaking one of his ribs in the fall.
B5F" hear that Capt Wm. Stott went over to
Sau Francisco in the Yankee, for the purpose of
purchasing a vessel to run in company with the
Yankee as a packet to S. F. We also hear that Mr.
A T. Lawton, of S. F., intends to dispose of the Fa-M?
Major as soon as a faster vessel can be procure! to
lake her place. The trade and travel on this route
demand two if not three vessels equal to the Yankee,
or capable of making the round trip between the tffJ
ports regularly in 45 days.

Correspondence of the Pacific Com. Advertiser.
Dear Sir: As your columns are devoted to the
advancement of all that is good and proper, allow me
to make a few remarks on the native newspapert
known as Ka Hae Hawaii ; and first in the absence
of the Hoku Loa, it will do as a vehicle of informa
tion for the Hawaiians. but without intending &r
flattery to yourself, for I think you might have dose
a little better, yet the Hoku Loa. what there of
it, was first rate, sensiblo and to tho point but &
Hae Hawaii, oh dear! the corrupted English is fear
fully absurd; for instance, in the last issue, is :
item about Walker, the Nicaragua man, and
heading reads thus: JVct Waka ka Pilipaka, and I
want to know if JVa Walker ka Filibuster vo$
not read and look just as well. Why, the word
paka of itself is a puzzler, and if Hawaiians are go&
to stick at pilipaka, they might as well stick at ji'1
buster and done with it
Paka, the last syllable in th'i beautiful word
corrupted English, as it is f-. tobacco, and the i&
syllable pili is pure Hawaiian for "coincide," "aS16"
ing," "adhering to," &c, &c, so just put these t3
syllables together with their proper understood y
waiian meaning and if you find any thing approa
to the idea of filibuster, well, then I cave; unless i
the first syllable pili, "to adhere to.' . j,

again, the correspondence from different P0

of something better. And to close on HaWhaPter
rupted English, I beg to refer you to
