The ship Ctntrmt Pike, of New Bedford, CapC John RasseO,
anchored here yesterday, P. M-, 13 months from New Bedford
last from Kodiack, Au. 1st.
CapC R. Informs as that there was quite a Urge proportion of
tka wbaliag fieetoa tbe Kodiack ground estimated at 00 ships.
Tbe weather in the early part of the season was very rough.
with a very heavy sweU running so much so, that several ships
were obliged to cut from whales, anil with the loss of. " beads'
of bone. June, and early in Jury, warm and pleasant weather
the latter t-art of July was rainy, and the snips were leaving tat
There bad been but a few accidents among the ships. Had
heard of but one fatal ; the carpenter of tbe ship Enterprise, of
Nantacket, was killed by a whale staving the boat. There had
not been much loss of boats, bnes or craft.
Cape K. has been a week at Kealakekua ; put In there on
account of his own uVbealth, but Is now perfectly well.
When tbe ship was put away" there were two other ships
in company who also appeared as tf " bound South" and the
Captain thinks there will be quite a number of arrivals this
ssniitti, as tae whales appeared to aave left the grounds.

Jcxr 23, 1857. Spoke Russian war steamer restock, which
had left Ayan in tbe beginning of July, after having attempted
to go to sea from that port twice during the Utter part of June
and both times having been cotnpellod to return to port on ao
count of tbe ice in the OchoUk Sea. Tho Vottock reported the
Condor, Whiteside, at Ayan repairing damages sustained in the
ice, had taken one whale since leaving Oahu. The Lwdia, Leon
ard, and China, Thompson, each one whale this season ; another
whaleship, name not obtained, had also touched off Ayan, tbe
captain bad his wife and dull on board. A whaling captai n
had been landed at Ayan by a whaleboat, his ship being outside
at sea, he being sick, returned to lus"ship after having procured
advice and medicine, to cruise until the month of August, then
to return to tbe islands, as recommended to do by his physician
at Ayan. Could not learn the name of tbe captain. There was
quite a number of vessels whaling in Tavick fiay, but we have
no report of them. One whaler was reported to be lost in the
Ochntak Sea, no particulars as to the name of tbe vessel, or
time, place and cause of tbe disaster could be obtained. The
Ice being so very late in tile Ochobk Sea, and not wishing to ex

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10.
The return of the first whaler from the North
Facific in in each year watched with considerable
interest, as much of the lusinet prosperity of
the islands is rupposetl to depend on the success
of the fleet. To a certain extent the fall busi
ness of the seaports is regulated by their success,
A whale chip which comes into port with only
four hundred barrels pays off a very small sum to
the officers and crew di.-charged here, while ves
sels averaging 1000 barrels necessarily pay off four
times as much, (it-m-raliy the money thus paid
off is spent here.
The returns which we publish in another col
umn, for which we are indebted to attentive cor
respondents at tho windward ports, is meagre,
but as full as could be expected by the first ar
It may be interesting to some of our readers to
compare these early reports with those of last
year. In the Commtrcial for August 28, 1856,
the first returns from the Kodiack were published
Nineteen whalers then reported gave a total of
6,700 barrels of oil at the various dates spoken or
heard from up to Aagust 1, estimating 100 bar
rels to each whale, which is generally done by
whalemen. This would make our first report in
1856 give an average of 353 barrels to each vessel
These same nineteen vessels brought into port, in
1856, 18,620 barrels of polar oil, or an average
of 980 barrels to each ship as the summer's
This season, in our first report from the Kodi
ack, we have twenty-five vessels with 8,350 bar
rels which give an average of 334 barrels to each
vessel, or nineteen barrels per ship less than last
year at the same time making tho catch up to
August vary but little from last season s.
On looking over the arrivals of the first whalers
forBeveral years at Honolulu, we find them to
have been as follows :
Aug. 23. 1S-V1 Ship Chas. Phelps, full, from Kodiack.
Aug. 24, 13 Polar Star, 600 bbls. from do.
SepC 26, 191 Bark N. 8. Perkins, from a sealing rnyage.
Aug. 31, 1 Ship Jason, full, from Ocbouk.
Aur. 9. la5 Zenas Coffin. Knee, full, frnm Kndiark.
SepC 8, 167 Ship Gen. Pike, Russell, 800 bbls. tliis season,
arrhreu at Kealakeakua August 23.
From the Ochotsk Sea we fear the reports will
not come in so favorably, on account of the ice
holding on so late as July, as reported by the
schooner San Diego. Yet we may be mistaken
here, for it is possible that the late ice may keep
the body of the whales in that ground and render
it afetter than ordinary season. But as yet it
can be little else than conjecture. -'-
Besides the drawback of ice, we learn from Mr.
Dougherty that the Russian authorities have for
bidden the capture of whales by foreign vessels
in the bays and among the islandd of their Asiatic
possessions, and in order to carry out their inten
tions have sent war vessels to protect the grounds.
The information was derived from the captain of
the Russian war steamer Vostock, and ia doubt
less reliable. If so, it will seriously interfere
with the success of the Ochotsk fleet, for the fa
vorite resort of whales is in the bayp over which
the Russians can exercise jurisdiction. That they
have a perfect right to carry out this policy no
one can doubt. The United States and England
protect their own fishing grounds, and Russia can
do the same. But unless the whaling grounds
are visited by Russian ships, it would soem to be
little else than a " dog in the manger" policy, to
drive away American and European whalers.
While on the subject of whalers, we must al
lude to some of our regulations in regard to
them The impression is general that the gov
ernment give them great privileges or Inducements
to visit our ports. The principal one is that they
can land $200 worth of goods free of duty
which amounts to a bonus of 10 ! A great in
ducement this. On the other hand there are
A petition has been circulated and been
signed by over eighty shipmasters and most of
the merchants here, and we understand is soon to
be presented to the Privy Council, praying that
the valley water may be furnished to ships free,
as it is at most other ports. This petition is so
reasonable that we cannot believe that the govern
ment will hesitate on the subject for a moment.
We do not know of any law that can prevent the
Privy Council from carrying out the prayer of
At Tahiti, every facility is afforded for ships to
procure water without delay. Four water spouts
are furnished by the government, at which as
many ships can procure water at the same time,
and without any charge, we believe, for these

has been erected for the purpose of aflbrdin-
free storage for oil or ship stores that captains
may choose to leave there. Large reservoirs are
also constructed by the government, and water
furnished to them free of charge.
Some three years ago an offer was made to the
government, through Dr. Judd, in which several
merchants, including Capt. Makee, James Rob
inson and others were interested, to purchase the
water works at the cost price, and supply the
shipping free of charge and also to supply, the
town, at fixed rates, with all the water needed.
This proposal, which might have relieved the
government of embarrassment, and, under the
conduct of energetic individuals, have leen a ben
efit to the town as well as its commerce, was con
temptuously spurned by the Privy Council, who
may yet see the day when their action in the mat
ter will bo judged exceedingly narrow and impo
litic. The charges made on deserters from ships are
immoderate and vexatious. The ship is charged
for every deserter arrested $6 if taken in town
and $12 if out of town ; and one dollar per day
for board. These charges are evidently unieason
able, a source of annoyance to masters, and ought
to be reduced. At Tahiti the charge for arrest
of deserters is $2, and twelve and a half cents
per day for board, which covers actual ex
penses. Another gricvanco to which captains have to
submit now and which causes much complaint, is
the re-imposition of port charges at each port.
For instance, if a whaler puts into Hilo to re
cruit and lays there two weeks, and goes into
Kawaihae to get ten barrels of potatots which
she had bought at Hilo, she has to pay port
charges at Kawaihae, and if she stops at lahaina
long enough to get her letters and a side of beef,
she must be taxed again. And the same at Hono
lulu. Now a whale ship paying port duesat any
one port in the group and clearing properly,
should be exempt from the same charges at all the
other ports she visits.
These charges for water, board and double port
fees are unjust, and ought to be abolished or re
duced. Tis not so much the amount of the
charges, as the feeling that it is an imposition
on their, as 6trangers. Governments lose nothing
by a liberal course of policy to strangers, whether
merchantmen or whalers, and in the end will bo
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Land Wauravts It is seldom that these docu
ments stray so far from the commercial centers of the
United States as these islands. We have been shown
one, however, issued on the 21th of Jane, 1857, to
Thom&s Hunt of Ewa, on this island, who is, we be
lieve, the oldest foreign resident on these islands, be
ing now 92 years of age. Mr. Hunt served in the
war of 1812 on board the old frigate Constitution, as
paymaster. Previous to his enlistment in the Navy
he was a resident here, and after the close of the war
he returned to the islands. At the instance of Mr.
Gregg, U. S. Commissioner, he made application to
the U. S. government to receive the same awards as
were given to others who served in the war of 1812,
and after four years delay he has now the gratifica
tion of receiving a gratuity of 160 acres of govern
ment land in any part of the United States that he
may select, not now occupied. The document itself
is an object of cariosity.
Fikk Department. A meeting of the Honolula
Fire Department was held on Wednesday evening of
last week. Among the matters presented was the
plan for a Hook and Ladder Co. The building has
been located and fitted op with every convenience,
including the necessary apparatus. The location of
the house is very central, adjoining No. 2's engine
house. As soon as a sufficient number of names are
entered, the company is to be organized, which we
trust will be immediately. There is a need of a good,
active organization. Seo notice of a meeting of the
memtjers this evening, in another column.
Yankeb Ingenuity. Mr. J. ITatcher, carpenter, in
Fort street, has shown us a machine for the manufac
ture of window blinds, with which one man can per
form the wore of six men under the old mode. The
machine is not a new one, but the use to which it is
pat is entirely new. The tools used in making the
tenons and holes of the blind slats were devised by
him and were mode here after his models. This is
certainly a great improvement over the former slow
method, and the probability is that a patent could be
secured for it in the United States.
Shade Trees Somebody deserves credit for his
efforts to rid the streets of one of the greatest nuisances
we have here called in most civilized countries,
shade trees by trimming up the low-limbed stunted
haa trees scattered about the town. These trees
were originally planted for ornament, but are now
about as ornamental as so many toadstools, to say
nothing of the damage they incessantly cause to car
riages. Shade tiees in Honolula should be planted
just inside of the wall or fence; there is, then, no
danger of their being broken down, while they will
give, when a few years old, ample shade to the side
B. Y. Avokl. We were quite taken by surprize to
see the announcement that this gentlemen, well known
as a former United States Consul at this port, has
been appointed as United States Minister to Sweden.
Those who are acquainted with his antecedents, did
not think that he leld so high a place in the opinion
of the President and people of the United States.
Whale ship Black Warrior. This ship, owned
at this port, which left here in May for the Kodiack,
put into San Francisco in July, having experienced
a severe gale, in which her sails were badly torn. .
On her passage she took seventy bbls. sperm. It
being too late to reach the Kodiack ground with any
chance of fair success, Capt. Brown, concluded to fit
out for the lower California coast. He sold the
sperm oil and purchased for two thousand dollars a
schooner to accompany the ship as a tender, in bay
whaling, and had sailed for the Golf of California.
He will doubtless give a good report of himself in
We are glad to see a substantial stone wall in
course of construction around the church premises at
Kawaiahao. Ruin and 'doby desolation has so long
held supreme sway there that fears were entertained
of a relapse to the primative state of society, when
land-marks were unknown. Now that improvement
has begun, we hope to see the entire premises en
closed, substantial gates put up and if horses and
cattle are pastured there, as heretofore, that they
pay for it Trees should be planted around the en
closure, and some effort made to beautify the resting
place of many of the worthiest of the Hawaiian race.
Target Practice. The Rifles went out on a
second target practice on Monday last, leaving the
armory at 1 o'clock. The atmosphere was heavy,
and the wind very sflbng'and quarterly across the
shots. The prize was a pair of duelling pUtols, and
was won by Lieut J. H. Wood. Private Armstrong
made the second best shot In all, 135 shots were
fired, 13 of which hit the target, 55 hit the board,
and 67 were lost . The target was 80 inches in
diameter, the bull's eye was five inches.
The Age or Crinoline. It may not be generally
known that the present style of female dress is an
old fashion revived. As long ago as 1711, Pope wrote
as follows, in his " Rape of the Lock :"
u To fifty chosen sylphs, of special note,
We trust the important charge, the petticoat :
Oft hare fre known that seven-fold fence to fail.
Though stiff with hoops, and armed with ribs of whale,
Form a strong line about the silver be und.
And guard the wide circumference around."
Novelties. Among the novelties which Day;d has
lately brought out is an automaton aviary connected
with a 20-day clock a very pretty and attractive
thing, which Mr. Waterhouse has secured for one of
his stores. Then, there is the 44 razor strop man"
conducting a concert of professionals. And lastly a
locomotive in fv-U blast, which on being wound up.
runs briskly around the room. A few of the latter
would take among the juveniles, for whose amuse
ment it is intended.
Masonic. The members of the Masonic fraternity
in Honolulu are much gratified by the reception of a
dispensation from the Grand Chapter of the United
States of America for a Royal Arch Chapter at Hono
lulu. It was brought by Messrs. Coady and Hanks,
members of Lodge Le Progres de L'oceanie" of
Honolulu, and also members of the Royal Arch.

A Sell. The richest joke of the season is that
perpetrated in last Saturday's Polynesian, supposed
to be by the 44 snapper up." Whether it is a libel to
announce a marriage Before it happens, is a question,
which some would, doubtless, conclude only an
44 unconsidered trifle." We congratulate Mr. Hanks
on his good fortune and tho 44 snapper up" on the
size of his bump of caution.
ST" The testimonial which we received a few days
since from our Lahaina subscribers was very accepta
ble. It is always agreeable to know that one's efforts
are appreciated by those he serves. "When a soldier
enlists, he binds himself to do his duty, whatever it
may be. The same with a journalist, and as such we
ask no greater reward than to know that our labors,
however hnmble, are acceptable.
ST We are indebted to Mr. Alox. M'Gregor of tl J
East Mam Plantation for a keg or very supensr
sugar, manufactured on that estate. Its color I i
light, fully equal to the whitest Havana. The cafe
on East Maui is of unusually rich juice this year,
and the sugar and syrup that is produced there wiy
be of a superior flavor. Hackfeld & Co. are agents
in this city for the plantation.
A Litebart Horse. On Saturday last, Mr.
William Duncan rode up to our office to obtain the
latest New York papers', leaving his horse at the
gate. The horse, however, had no idea of being
served last, and followed his master up the stone steps
and verandah into the store, evidently after the
44 latest Herald."
Mormon Press. By a, San Francisco paper we
learn that another effort is being made to start a
Mormon paper here, for which object a press and
types are to be introduced. The avowed purpose of
the new organ is to resuscitate the Mormon spirit,
which it is acknowledged is nearly dead.
False Alarm. An alarm of fire was given last
evening, about 8 o'clock, which proved to be a tar
barrel, set on fire by some juveniles, in the neighbor
hood of Dr. Judd's, as a birth-day celebration.
Better choose broad day light to get up an excitement
on account of a birth-day. -
The schooner San. Diego, which sailed in May,
intending to touch and trade at Japan, was not able
to make any port in that kingdom, owing to the
strong westerly winds, prevailing. She brings back
nearly the same cargo which she took away.
From Sydney. Tbe bark Sevastopol brought a
mail for this port, and advices to July 13. We
notice in the papers received very little news besides
local intelligence. The India insurrection had been
published in the colonial papers. The bark sailed
again the same day (Tuesday) for San Francisco.
The Rifles. The reception which this fine corps
gave on Friday last to their Capt R. Coady, Esq.,
on his return from a visit to the United States, was
conceived and executed in a manner that called out
general praise. It showed that the company were
ready at a moment's call for any servico that might
be required of them.
Auction Sales. We would call attention to the
heavy sales announced for Friday at Caranave's,
and on Saturday at C. Brewer's. The stock is large
and the variety all that can be desired.

Poiso!tnro Tea. The London Times alarms itself
dreadfully at the idea that the Chinese may resort to
poison, as a more efficient weapon than those usually
considered legitimate in warfare. It says:
44 In there any body so foolish as to suppose that
the Chinese will not poison every box of tea, preserved
ginger, sweetmeats, chow-chow, marmalade, or any
thing else that k exported from China for the use of
foreigners ? We believe honestly and truly that the
destruction of human life in this country and America,
from the use of poisoned tea, will be the most fearful
calamity that ever visited the two countries in this
century. It will kill more people in England that
were killed in the Crimea. It will destroy more life
in the Jnited States than our wars, yellow fever, or
the cholera. People continue to drink tea and think
there is no danger ! It will be a fatal mistake. Wait
until the cargoes of tea now on their way to Ameri
can ports are landed. Those who dream we shall
escape poisoned tea had better preserve the extracts
from the Times. We have no doubt that on warn
ing articles about tea will save thousands ofaves in
this country. We wish all would take waning ia
Correspondence of the Pacific Com- AdrerUser.
Honolulu, 7th Sept, 1857.
Mr. Editor ; I read in your last number a para
graph about Vidocq, of thief-catching celebrity, ia
which the fellow is represented as having been Pre
fect of Police in Paris.
The Prefect of Police is one of the highest office of
the country a station somewhat similar to that of a
government Minister and has never been occupied'
but by men of respectability. That department being
ooranosed of divisions, like a ministry, the last, though
not least, of these general bureaux is called tetret k
police, of which one of the chief attributions is tne
detection of the authors of crimes of all sorts. Vidocq
as the most likely man to know the track of the vil
lains, was chosen to superintend that subaltern ofSce,
and Laoour, of the same stamp, succeeded him. As to
Mr. Carlier, the present Councillor of State, he was
Prefect of Police, or the head of the administratioD of
which Vidocq and Lacour were the tails. Are BOt
poisons made use of in the cure of certain diseases ?

not wishing to see even the " Restoration day" given

day that I think might be observed with great pro

with branches on the other islands perhaps, that
would tend to cultivate a friendly state of feeling. 1

Cuas. W. Moore, Esq., Sir and Brother. As
your Freemasons' Monthly Magazine, which num
bers many subscribers at these Islands, is a general
vehicle of Masonic intelligence from all parts of the
world, I have thought proper to send you by this

place here recently, that may not be uninteresting to
your readers th admission into our Order of his
Majesty, the Kino of these Isles, Kamehameha IV,
He was initiated and passed on Wednesday eve

l'Oceanie, instituted at this place ia March, 1843,
under special powers, granted to Capt Le Tellier, of
the French ship Ajax, by the Supreme Council of
France, at its Session of 18th April, 1842, there being
no Lodge here at that time.
His Majesty, after his return from Europe, and be
fore ascending the throne, had been desirous of join
ing in the Royal Art, from a favorable opinion enter
tained of it; but was prevented, from not having at
tained the lawful age. At the close of last year, his
application having been favorably received by the
urcmren, u was actea upon in the usuSr manner,
and a special Lodge was convened, as above stated,
and opened at 8 o'clock P. M. ; when His Majesty
having been duly and truly prepared, was admitted.

initiation into their Body; the utmost conviviality

being seated at the right of the W. M. and a distin
guished visitor, high in the Order, on the left After
the health of His Majesty had been drank, several
Masonic sentiments and addresses expressive of the
occasion, were given and the company retired at a
late hour, highly gratifies? with the occurences of au
evening, which had given so illustrious a Brother to
our ancient Order.
His Majesty having expressed the wish to render
himself more fully acquainted with the two degrees
by intercourse with a well-informed Brother an offi
cer of his household, his raising was deterred until the
evening of Feb. 8, when a special meeting being again
called at the Lodge room, the Lodge. was opened in
the F. Cs degree, when he passed his examination
in open Lodge, in full, on the two decrees he had
taken, to the surprise and admiration of the Brethren
present, thus evincing the attention' and interest
necessary in such proficiency in the time el&nMvT

Physician to the King, and Henry A. Nielson, His

have many returns of this anniversary, and may it
. ever be a satisfaction to him to remember, that on
the ese of his 22d birth-day he was made a Master
Masfoa." The Grand Battery was then given. His
Majesty replied in an appropriate speech, thanking
the Lodge for the light they had conferred, and re
marked, that it would ever be his pride and pleasure
to promote the welfare of such societies as the pres
ent, in his dominions, believing that no better guar
antee for the peace and prosperity of his reign could
be afforded, than the prevalence of the noble princi
ples inculcated by the rder. The Supreme Council
of France was then given, and also the health of Le
Tellier, the founder of the Lodge, whose torch had
been the first to enkindle Masonio light in these dis
tant Isles of the Sea; tbe health also of Brother John
Meek, one of the oldest foreign residents of the island,
and an original member at the formation of the
Lodge, who was made a Mason in the city of New
York forty years ago, was drank with enthusiasm.
He is a gentlemen who preserves even at his advanced
age, all his youthful ardor and zeal for the Order,
and the Lodge and Masonry at these islands have
been to him largely indebted.
After partaking of His Majesty's hospitality to the
small hours, at a signal from the Junior Warden, the
Brethren retired, feeling highly pleased, that another
strong column hod been added to support and beau
tify the Temple, and another proof given to the world
of the vitality and universality of Masonry, embra

islands, less than a century ago, were unknown alike
