U. S. Ship John Adams,
' . Chincha Islands, March 14, 1857. $
jjEAii Sir: We left Valparaiso February 11th,
touching at Arica, Islay, Callao and from there to
this place. Peru, as you may know, is in a state of
revolution and we are having an eye to things about
in these parts. Vivanco's party have possession of
t'ie Peruvian Navy, and a ruse or treachery lost to
CastilU the best vessel in their navy, the frigate
qp'urimac. This was a stunner to Castilla, who de
clare! her to be a pirate, authorizing ships of any
ration to seize her; and, finally, finding they didn't
aJl Ukc her, offering outsiders, filibusters any par
tv, 8200,000, then 500,000, then one million and
titeir expenses paid, to retake her. We heard at
Valparaiso that these offers had induced adventurers
from California to undertake the effort, and that they
were jroing to charter the JYbrtherner and Oregon, find
v.ith mi armed force do the thing; but, as yet, they
havn't done it. The Apurimac defies all South
American powers to take her, and lays off San Lo
renzo, in the harbor of Callao, saucy-able, as she is.
She "is a fine frigate (screw). To keep the men from
getting rusty, they take an occasional sweep round
the harbor, defying the forts and slinging her shot
and shell about with a perfect looseness, regardless of
life and limb. She keeps the inhabitants, residents
and citizens in great fear and terror and well she
may. She has directed most of her demonstrations
against the only naval force left the government the
Eteamer Ecayali. Sh-3 has been moored near the
mole, and these practices in gunnery have, besides
putting several shots into her, and killing 14 or 15
Cholos aboard, pretty essentially frightened the peace
able inhabitants on shore.
Lamb, of Honolulu notoriety is there, keeping a
sailors' grogery, and he showed mo a 32-lb. shot that
"brought up" in his bed-room, coming within a foot
of taking off one of his wife's feet, breaking the bed
post and scaring them both some. Yankee Sullivan's
wife is with him and brags on her young kanaka girl.
Sunday, March 15th. At sea.
We left the "dung piles" yesterday, P. M. There's
American force enough there to take care of them
selves. Just before we left, the Jlpurimac steamed
up and anchored near North Island, where most of
the "English and foreign fleet lay. The American
fleet lay between North and South Islands, and such
a forest of shipping, with their tall spars, I have not
seen anywhere, nor can be seen in any other part of
the world. There are at these Islands now about 130
sail, and all of them large vessels. 60 of these are
American ships most of them fine clippers. I am
told there have been 170 sail here at a time. Wc lay
at the Chinchas 3 days and held a levee a feed and
gave the "roughs" an Ethiopian entertainment , which
appeared to please them very much. There are about
fifteen or twenty captains wives who are accompany
ing their mates (hymenial). They have to stick to
the ship, as there are no accommodations ashore but
for coolies, and consequently a good deal of 44 gam
ming" is constantly going on. They most of them
lay here sixty, ninety and sometimes over one hun
dred days. Great traffic this, and it seems a wise dis
pensation of Providence that the birds have in former
times contributed so much to the freighting business
of our mercantile marine. I don't know what our
ships that bring so much into the Pacific would do if
it were not for thi3 article of traffic .o carry back.
Vivanco's party have possession of the Islands and
he is raising means by allowing outside parties to
freight on their own account. Heretofore the Peru
vian Guano Companies have had the control and
monopoly, by chartering vessels on their own account
nrvl having agents in r ranee, XiUgiuuu uuu. auicnua.
Thus far, all contracts made with the government
have been respected by Vivanco's agents and they are
allowed to load, but more despatch is used in loading
up cash customers than others. The great trouble
appears to .be want of laborers.
Capt. Napolean Collins is waiting to take command
cf this ship at Callao, where we shall probably be in
a few hours. He came down in the steamer from
Panama, that touched at the Chinchas yesterday and
brought us despatches from him and the Commodore.
This rayther puts Capt. pro tern) Do Krafft's nose
out of joint, besides disarranging the locale of some
other ward-room officers.
Speculations are rife regarding whether this ship
will be, like the St. Marys, relieved across -the Isth
mus. If not, allowing five months, the usual time
allowed to a man-of-war to get home, from the Pa
cific, 'twill be soon time for her to start as her three
years cruise is up the last of October. My private
opinion is that the old John Adams will never go out
the Pacific again. The government at home should
&ct up to Secretary Dobbin's recommendation, and
have two squadrons in the Pacific, and instead of
Ending any vessels home, send more out. It would
gratify a national pride of mine if they would send
out the J"iagara or Merrimac round the horn, and
show the conceited South American powers evidence
that we are 44 some pumpkins." The English, how
ever apparently favorable to us on ths other side,
holster all prejudices against us in the eyes of these
powers that they can, and give occular demonstra
tion of their power by keeping a formidable squadron
in their ports.
The Monarch was at Valparaiso when we left, and
Admira Bruce came down from there in the steamer
to Callao and is waiting for her to join him there as
soon as she recruits and refits. Rumor says, but not
with much foundation, that the English are going to
eeize the Chinchas for debt At any rate, affairs
looked so squally about Callao that he concluded that
his presence was wanted there.
Thi3 44 Peru" is always in hot water. Internal
revolutions, rebellions and what not, paralyze her
commerce and agriculture, and retard all commer
cial prosperity. Some party or other ia always kick-
ing up a bobbery, and her citizens appear to be satis
fied with being soldiers, without being subject to "the
fortunes of war,' satisfied with the name of the
thing, without much, if any, real patriotism, as we
hear of but .little, fighting; and, I think, barring a
few leaders, such as Castilla, with but little fight in
them. The Castilio or Fortress is a splendid affair,
covering a great deal of ground and very substan
tially built, but located badly for the protection of the
present harbor. The site of old Callao is at present
under water. The city was dropped down, one hun
dred and eleven years ago, and only one maa left to
tell the tale, and he must have had the shakes pretty
bad. ' Lima," the city of kings, is only seven miles
from Callao, connected by railroad, and I shall take
a ran up there during the coming week.
Mr. and Mrs. Caverly have been passengers with
us to and from the Chinchas. He is Secretary of Le
gation to our Minister to Chile, J. Randolph Clay.
He is in very bad health and his days are numbered.
He has consumption after him, and suffers already
with the prevailing symptoms. He is a splendid

Sir : As attention has been recently drawn to the
supposed loss of the schooner Kamamalu from the
nllporpl drunkenness nf'tlie cantain on his leavinsr La-
. . ,
haina, we would respectfully call the attention of
those government othcers who may nave it m xneir uature. Persia undertook to evacuate Herat within
power to correct the abuses of the license law in our three months after its ratification, and upon the ful

of an intoxicatine drink that causes more trouble at
Lahaina, and not only Lahaina, but throughout the
T . . A. ,
lomuu;;' l"a" ""'
The too probable loss of the Kamamalu has been After presiding as Speaker in the House of Com
the theme of conversation from Hawaii to Niihau: nions for eighteen years, to the satisfaction of all
and the assigned reason ia. Lahaina beer." The
great number of passengers and seamen, (about 80)
the large amount expended upon her, (55 12,000) her
owner-ship by H. R. II. Victoria Kamamalu, all have
tended to make her loss a public one. But it is scarce
two years since another fine schooner left Lahaina for
Hawaii, and was never heard from. We refer to the
JViihoa, a fine specimen of Island ship building. She
was built on Kauai, and was owned by Kekaulahao.
The last that is known of her fate,. is, that she left
Lahaina with a crowded deck load of passengers; the
captain leinff, as was currently reported at the time,
under the influence cf beer; and the probability is,
the vessel capsized off Kalepolepo Bay, as the winds
were very strong the night of her leaving Lahaina.
She is yet among the missing ; as yet there are no
tidings of what befell her. Thus, two fine ves
sels have within a short time probably been lost
and some hundred or more of His Majesty's subjects
found a watery crave, from the direct influence of
the illicit sale of intoxicating beer at Lahaina.
That there is a melancholy state of things, so far
as regards the native masters of our coasters, and not
only of masters but crews, on the occasions of their
touching at Lahaina is too true. Those foreigners
who are engaged in the coasting trade, tell us that
they have more trouble at Lahaina from their natives
getting drunk than at all the other ports they touch
at. There seems to be no difficulty at all in the free
sale of beer. We hear that it is carried on as openly
as anv other business, and the beer kegs and bottles
make their display as other articles of merchandise.
The question arises, cannot this evil be stopped in a
great measure, or, at least, controlled i Vc think it
can. If we are rightly informed there has been a
stop put to the sale of beer here and at other places
on the Islands. "Why not at Lahaina ? If we mis-
take not, our worthy Marshal found some two years
since that the beer shops of Honolulu were a nuisance,
and they were shut up. Can it not be done at La
haina ? We would most respectfully suggest to the
Acting Minister of the Interior, that he would give
the matter his attention, and we can but think that
in a matter in which the welfare of His Majesty's
subjects is so deeply interested they will find in him
an ardent co-operator in any salutary measures he
may devise, and we pledge to him the active assist-
ance and countenance, of not only the order loving
citizens of Lahaina but of those engaged in the coast
ing trade, and of every true friend to the country.

Sir: Chapter So, Section 1, of the Penal Code
reads thus: ' Whoever is found drunk in any street,
road, or other public place, from the voluntary use of
any intoxicating liquor," &c.

have, seen them arrest persons for merely having
drank liquor, others because their breath smelled of
strong drink, and others again for apparently no other
6 , , , -rr , , .
reason than because tney nau frequently arrested
them before and had probably got into the habit of
it. Is it a crime to drink spirits ? The statutes do
not make it such; the crime consists in the result
which may follow, viz.: public disturbance. If so,
and few can indulge in their use without getting more
or less intoxicated is not government, in licensing
retail liquor shops aiding in the commission of crime ?
And is it not inconsistent to punish men by imprison
ment and fine for doiner that which you afford them
every facility for doing ? I am no apologist for
drunkenness. I do not believe in allowing men to
ui uimtuuo . ,
make beasts of themselves outright, and outrage pub-
lie decency, but I do think that when a man who is
neither a vasrrant nor a public nuisance, has, under
the direct encouragement of government, got himself
, . u, - t,i-i
elevated," tight," t,psy,' or drunk more
or less on brandy that has paid government $5 per
gallon duty, and is peaceably proceeding homeward
or shipward, that it does not conduce to the public
morals or answer any good purpose whatever to
pounce upon him with two stout " limbs of the law,'
bring him to the station-house in anything but a po
lite manner, lock him up in a cell with anybody and
everybody, and fine him six dollars and costs the next
morning simply on a constable's swearing stoutly that
he was ona.
These thoughts were suggested by observing the perfectly
44 loose" manner in which the man-of-war's crew lately in port
appeared to enjoy the government ''facilities" for fretting drunk,
their entire immunity from arrest by the. police and the
Polynesian? "appreciating" way of winking at the capers of
44 Jack ashore." We are visited annually by a great many
thousand seamen 44 blubber hunters,' if you please, and they
spend a good deal of money on the aforesaid "facilities," cut all
sorts of amusing capers, but I never knew the Polynesian to
crack a solitary smile over the whimsicalities of these 44 Jacks
ashore," and I have known scores upon scores of them forced to
make the acquaintance of our police, while their dollars went
into the treasury, I suppose. Are our policemen like pictured
justice, blind, and guided by the smell of blubtwr in the one
case, and repelled by the odor of gunpowder in the oth-?r f
This law of 4 drunk" does not work well. "It is a poor rule
that won't work both ways. "We have seen that the law is a
respector of persons. We know from observation that after a
man has been locked up all night and made a public spectacle of
next morning in the street and before the court, in nine case
out of ten he returns eagerly to the intoxicating draught to drown
shame, and the oftener the arrest and exposure is repeated the
more callous to the shame he becomes, but the farther from re
form. I defy you to show me a i Logic instance where a drunk
ard has been reformed, or an occasional inebriate deterred from
getting aromc, through the operation cf thia law ; on the con
trary it judicial branus.aa a criminal the heretofore venial of

By the arrival of the clipper ship Staghound, 15
day3 from San Francisco, we have two weeks later
dates from the United State? and Eurone. The
political news is of very little interest.

In the House of Commons Mr. Labouchere said
that from the most recent information it appeared
that the Northern ports of China were perfectly tran-

the treaty with Persia was of the most . tatislhctory

tages were also gained, as England was to be placed
upQn ft the most favoml nations-while
an further disputes between Persia and Afghanistan
were to be referred to the arbitration of England.
d Palmerston said the treaty was in all respects
a better treaty than Persia had offered to accept at
parties, Mr. Shaw Lefevre announced his intention
to retire from office at the close of the present Parlia
ment. Lord Palmerston moved the thanks of the House to
the Hon. Gentleman, and an address to the Crown,
praying some special recognition of his services, both
which resolutions were unanimously agreed to.
At a Bubsetment sitt ng, the House having cone
into Committee, Lord Palmerston moved a resolution,
placing at the disposal of the Crown ,4,000 per
annum, to be conferred upon the Speaker for the term
of his natural life. The motion was carried at once
amid loud cheei-s.
The London Times in describing the scene says :
The interest cf the House was centered maiuly ont he
demeanor of the Speaker himself. The simple and
unaffected dignity of Mr. Shaw Lefevre has often been
remarked; it was. perhaps, never put to a more severe
test than on luesday night, and it came triumphantly
out of the ordeal. The resolution recording his
services was long and highly cnlogistic, and it devolv
ed upon him to read to the House this highly flatter
ing record of his own virtues. The position was a
difficult one. Few could have read such a resolution
in their own praise without betraying some degree of
consciousness, erring on the side of ostentation or of
false modesty. Mr. Lefevre read it from beginning
to end with simple dignity, and without a falter in
the tones of that fine sonorous voice which has so often
stilled the tumult of the House when at its .loudest.
It was only after the resolution had been carried by
acclamation, and the Speaker rose to reply, that his
emotions escaped from control. This was perhaps
owing to the spontaneous and graceful compliment
paid him when he rose, of the whole House uncover-
ing a mark ot respect winch is usually paid only to
messages from the Crown. His words were few, but
well chosen and emphatic; his thanks warm; and the
falter lug of that noble -roicc, for tho first -and only
time trembling in its self-command, testified to their
sincerity. The whole scene was striking and grandly
impressive, worthy of the first political assembly in
Later from CniNA. The clipper ship Kate
Hooper, arrived at San" Francisco, 49 days from
Hongkong, which port she left on the 17th March,
bringing forty-five days later intelligence.
The summary of the China Mail and the Hongkong
Register for the overland mail characterizes the
operations of the war as languid. No great accession
having been made to the British forces, they are kept
almost wholly on the defense Governor Yeh main
tains a sullen reserve, which bodes that the Chinese
are engaged in some preparations. The fleet of Chinese
craft now and then make occasional attacks, and small
guerilla parties have endeavored to effect surprise
captures of foreign vessels, but with no success. On
the 13th of March, Admiral Seymour arrived from
the Canton luver, where affairs are quiet, except an
occasional attack on the Macao forts. Un the 2oth
of February the Encounter', Coromandel, Forbes and
Hongkong, with eighteen armed boats, under com
mand of Captain O'CaHaghan, made an attack on an
equal number of armed junks, opposite the Fatee
Creek. The vessels grounded, and were unable to
bring their guns to bear, while the junks were drawn
up in a long line extending from Fatshan Creek to
Boat Passage, the latter sheltering them, lhe Untish
forcc opened fired at 2,000 yards, which was responded
to by the junks, with but little effect, the range of
their guns failing to carry a sufficient distance.
They stood shelling and rocketing better than usual,
so much so that the Lnglish papers compliment them
on the management of their guns. The British force
retired, having shown the Celestials that their large
vessels could approach nearer the Fatshan Creek than
