Btnrds of Directors id the several ditncta, a major
ity of whom re chosen by the House of Reprewnta-
Live. - The School Inspectors are ex officio members
of these local Boards, and the President of the Board
of Education is only a corresponding member. Hence
these English schools for natives are only, to a very
.. i limited extent, under the direction of tha Board of

anv of their conduct.

The returns are too imperfect to e ruble me to make
thee estimates strictly accurate.
' .Tha inquiry will naturally arise, why such a
' filling oil in these schools during list year? The
cause fs easily assigned. It was simply for the want
of means to support them, and in soinecasesadecline
- of tatresfsu the part of the parents. s?j,iHX) was
appropriates or the Le-nsI iture for the support of
this elass of schools, for each of the past two years,
but owing to the low state of the treasury, it was re
' doeeJ, hy order of the Privy Council, to S4.000. But
the principal c.iuse was the failure ou the part of
r-arenta to pay their proportion, aa the law requires.
In the case of many, tbere has been an absolute ina
bility to pay, hut more generally the difficulty has
been a want of interest.
In order to secure the most speedy success in giv
ing the English language to the nation, the En j ish
. school law of IS 54 needs, as it seems to me, and the
Board of Education is of the same opinion, to be
somewhat modified. Tiese-irbo enjoy the advantages
.of these- schools, in part at government expense,
should crime under some' formal obligation --to .send
their children attadiij for a length of time, sufficient
, to secure the object; otherwise, after the scholar has
got only a mere smattering of English, just enough
t fill him- with conceit, and do hm, perhaps, as much
' harm as good, he leaves school, and what - b is been
expended on him is about as good as lose . The plan
adopted in the Rryal School to bind the parents, by a
'written obligation, ta send their children regularly
for a series of years, paying a portion of the exrwn;e.
has worked "well and so far remedied the evil alluded
to. . '
Again, in order to success, these schools must bei
permanent, and in order to this their support must
be sure. At present, this. is not the case The imp
port depending io'part on parents, many of whom
8 re poor, and mere are 6ekle-tninded. is not su-e, and
teachers' of oca ire lve and seek ether employment.
The hta't of the law is net too broad for the wanrs of
the cation, but too broad fir our means. . Better have
a few English schools, f.r natives, well supported and
well taught by well qualified masters, than many only
half sust aired. nr.1 consequently poorly taught.
Our irwt and dirrt aim should be tn ra:e up a
class of satires to teach the English language to

The institution embraces a preparatory department,
into which, with a moderate degree of preparation in
the primary studies, such as csn be ot tained in the
Oyal School, or English schools or even in families,
and a good moral character,' the . pupils can enter;
and there be fitted to commence the regular College
course. Under present circumstances, thia prepara
tory department is indispensable, and those who have
an ordinary degree of ability and seal, will find little
difficulty in obtaining the necessary qualifications for
entering it. Natives can find boarding out of the in
stitution, if unable to meet the expense of boarding
in it, and the expenre to them will not be great, par
ticularly should a liberal endowment be seoured,
which the Trustees etill have in view.
' flis M.ijesty has taken a very deep interest in this
institution, personally, from tbe first, and should it
become well founded, and be successfully carried on,
it cannot fail, if the analogy of history is to be relied
on, to eiert a powerful and happy iufluence upoa his
nation, and honor upon his reign.
The number of scholars in the preparatory depart
ment, has varied from fifty to sixty, for the last two
years; only four have entered upon the regular Col
lege course. Three classes are preparing for this
course, to enter during three consecutive years.
Those who prefer it can take a philosophical course,
and omit part of the College studies -
Mb. Ltmax's Boariiso School at Hilo. This
school has received aid from time to time, from the
government; but is mainly supported by theAnieri
can Mission. The report of the teacher marked W, is
herewith enclose!. From this, it appears that in
18-j,"and 18-37. the number of scholars varied from
forty to sixty-five. The whole number taught in that
s;hool, from the beginning, in 1S36, is 491. Of these
250 are known to have engaged in teaching; two are
missionaries on Hiviw-a; four are licenced preachers;
six are sctiool inspectors; anu several are lawyers
Several have been members of the Legislature.
The school owns a fino tract of land, of some forty
acres, on which the scholars labor for their own sup
port; and it is s.ife to s iy, a finer specimen of native
farming is no where to be found thin here. This
regular out door lalor accounts for the general good
health and bodily vicorof those boys, and contributes
greitly to their advancement in study.
The studies are pursued in the Hawaiian language.
and also in English. . 'About fco'H were expended in
IS S, in employing teachers in English; but as the
Legislature of that year mad no appropriation for
this, it was discontinued for a time; excepting what
t!i Prinoip il could impart in connection with his
other dutie; until the pup'U were reqmrea to pay
So a year for instruction in En glish,' which has ena
ble 1 the Trustees to h:re a separate teacher, for a
portion of each d.iy, to attend to this branch of study.
B it as these U ys are. oolhvted from all parts of tho
isl.tnd and are obliged to provide forttieirown wants,
mvnly by their own libor, this is a very heavy tax
upon them, and withal the amount of instruction has
not h"en adequate. Added to the burdens of these
schol irs is the road tax, which they have been obliged
to pay, for the fit time, in'lS57;and which the
Trustees suggest they should be exempt from. Some
more adequate support to the English department in
this valuable school. La much needeL Ou this school
the free schools of Hawaii are ia a great measure de
pendent for a supply of teiohers. From it some of
the scholars have entered yearly the seminary of Lv
hainalunu From the family school of Mr. Bond in Kohala,
there is no report. Nor from the Roman Catholic
high school at Ahuimanu. ou Oahu; but I was in
formed a few weeks since that it contains about twelve
schJars, and nourishes much as in former years.
The Mancl Libr School or A. Wilcox,
Waiole. Karat. This schul is for Kauai, what Mr.
Lyman's is for II iwaii. It is supported mainly by
inr .iun iv-m .uiwii'u -- 1 . cult-
port frum the government, in tbe way of land, agri-
an assistant teacher.
The number of pupils', in 18-" and 7, varied from
50 to 71. They support themselves by their own
labor, in cultivating the soil, which has manifold ad
vantages, of giving them health, fxd, and raiment,
and curing them of that scourge of the Hawaiian race,
laziness. The common schools of that island are
almost entirely dependent upon this school for teach
ers. Qui e a number have fitted here for Lihaina
luna. Instruction has beeu giveu iu English two
days in the week.
Besides the above there are several prirato schools
in Honolulu, which deserve notice here.
The schol of the Misses Lewersm Kukui street,
for white boys and girl; average number of popils,
about 21: all whites. Instruction given in the pri

Of the grosiser crimes, there hae been few, confined

this will leave 224 75 ns about the net cott of the

Purinjr the secoud year tbe paper was eularged and
impruve'J, aua iWU cp es were issued. The Gov.
ernment cSces were all gratuitously furnished. The 1
receipts were SfiT.Ulo 22, disbursements $2,883;
3120 of this was for assistance in procuring original
articles. One hundred dollars more should be added
to the expenditure fur cuts, illustrative of agricultural
subjects, which had been ordered during the yeir
previous, and which was charged to account of inter
est and rent. Tbe receipts fur advertising alone were
$560 during tbe second year of tbe paper.
The paper seems to be growing ia popular favor.
A newspaper has become, in fact, one of the real
wants of tbe people. During this year tbe cost of the
paper to subscribers is. Ibr a single cpy, SI 30; for
IU copies to one address SI 25 each, and subscribers
are required to pay in advance, which is a great im
provement. The subject of agriculture has been tnaie
the graft topic of the paper, and no doubt a deep and

The School FtrsD. The amount of the school fund
realized from the sale of lands was 832,611 03 on tho
81st of March last; 810,150 of this amount was ta
the Treasury at that date, and tho interest on it is
paid semi-annually. It will all be placed there as
soon as it can be collected. - , s
The fund consists of bills receivable, most of which
are regarded as good. But a portion of them are
held against persons who have purchased lands and
are secured by mortgages on the property sold, and
it is doubtful whether some of them will be able to
pay their notes when due. It may be necessary to
re-sell t.he land in some cases.
Lvtebest and Rent. The account of intorest and
rent is herewith enclosed marked O P. The gross
amount received on this account, from Jan. 1, 1856,
to March 81st, 1858, including the balance on hand

a very convenient and economical arrangement with
Dr. Smith to supply the Island of Kauai with such
melicinea as he thinks proper to distribute on that
island. On Oahu none have been called for -except
in one remote district. On the remote parts of Maui,
Molokai, and Hawaii, where there are no physicians.
small suimlies of the more simple medicines have been
sent at different times during the past two years, and
it is only to such remote places that it seems impor

The elucatvon of the Hawaiian' people can scarcely
be regarded as having more than passed the period of
its infancy. Forty years ago there was not a book in
the Hawaiian languaze; nor a school or a printing
press in the land. This was then a nation of pagans
of the lowest grade; and it would be utterly unreo-
i - . . - -
I wble to expect anything like that degree of ad
I vancement in our publio schools here which exists u
publio schools here which exists in
j older, wealthier, and more enlightened coiciTinities,
; and even there they are very imperfect. The Gov
ernor of the State of South Carolina in his report to
i the legislature for 1855 says. " the result of the free
; school system has fallen so far short of its object that
' it may be pronounced a failure; but so far from
' propcs'nff to discontinue it, he ar-rnes that it should
have a Iditional support- In other States of the Amer
; ican Union, especially in the South, similar com-
plaints are made of the inefficiency and imperfection
j of their publio schools. What then but imperfection
' is to be expectci in the schools of this people, so re
i cently awakened from the darkness and mental tor-
por of acres ?
j There is moreover nn important element of ednca
; tioti yet almost entirely wanting in our native'popu
j btion, and that is domr!ic titration. The family
; relation is yet ns a eeneral f tot in a most imperfect
; state. The very houses of the natives stand in the
! way of a proper trainme and enre of children. Of
i course the constant and careful inculcation of good
princ'ples in the minds of the children; the ever
watchful eye of parents, especially the mother, to se
i cure a ready and cheerful obedience: to shield them
from the corrupting influence of bad language and
, bad example; to notice and correct tbe first depar
; tures from truths and honesty; to see that all reason
: able wants are supplied snd temptations to do wrong
; removed, and the numberless snd nameless wars in
! which intellieent and faithful parents, feeling the
' we;jrht of their responsibility, take to train up their
; children at home " in the way that they should go,"
; are very much wanting amon? our native population,
i The education Hawaiian children receive is in the
j school tnnn, and in schools almost entirely supported ,
: by the Government. Home education -and family i
j trainine. which beiins with the very cradle, and with
i out which school instruction must ever be without its
mot important auxiliary, anl tx ineffectual to pro- i
driee its best nn I mot desired result, is a thinr yet
j to be intn-dnced in most native families. This ao
t counts for the fact that our native youth Renerally
j prx more of what may be termed " book knowl
' e-lire" than of practical knowledjre. They know how
1 1 read and write, but have no regular habits of or
der, industry or economy.
A rad-d reform bere is especially desirable on ac
count of the females of the nation. Of female educa
tion I have snokeu in former reports, particularly in
that of 18-", and need not repeat what was there
sa:d. Native cirls have fre scces. it is true, to all
th" pabl:e sfhools, to the English schools for n itives.
to the Royal S-.;hol, where a department is taueht by
! a competent wnie lady expressly Tor tnem; nut stin
I it is a fact that far hotter and more special provision
j need to be made fortheir edit ration. . The revival of
I the female seminary, or something similar, well con
dntod, would be ueful; an1 if the Leirisl-iture will
, pmvide the funds for the object, the Board will take
J preat pleasure in eswiblishintr such an institution in
j the shortest possible time. But even this wpul J not
i exactly meet the wants of oar native irirls. Onr ex-
peren-e teaches most emphatically that they require
j a training anterior to, and more mstemal and home
1 like thin that which can be acaaind even in the
j itr-i uiurmj inirtiii.iii Dtii''i, viif
j number must be collected together. They neel to be
j taken early into pood families, if possihle, and there

ramily. Many or our native irirw have received as
pood an cducit ion as the best of our schools could
affoH, but yet have strayed far from the paths of
virtue; and the general opinion, I believe, amongj
nose rest acquainted witn tne suoject, is mat me
lefect has beenin their tarly training. They were
spoiled before they were taken into school.
With a view to do something more directly and
specially for the native females, a portion of the ap-
propriation for English schools for natives, might bo
nsel in aiding parents to secure places for their girls.
while quite yonnr, in smod foreign families, where
they can be taught the Enelish language, and at the
same time the domestio duties. In short, receive the
very domestic training above referred to for a series
of years. In a former report I expressed my opinion
on the importance of having native females taught
tho English lingnage, in order to introduce it suc
cessfully among the population generally.
But why should it be expected that the Govern
ment alone do this, and everything else in the way of
education? Why will not private individuals, espe
cially foreign ladies, who are apt to be foremost in
all good works, enter thm field of labor, and while
their hands are bay for the relief of the distressed
stranger, the enlightenment of the distant heathen,
and other great and good works, at the same time let
their sympathies be awakened for their needy'aisters
cf tlto native race around their doors?

you tluit wa nsed thns- Romu Lances we bought of you, and
found thom to be of great oe.-eut iu capturing whales anioocst
The first whal- t".r t we n- :d the Bomb Lance, on was killed
In the following manrT The boat went oiontrsi e of the whale
and the boat-steerer fired a Bomb into Mm aid then fastened 10
him with a K'S iron : the Bomb was heard to explode, and the
whale did not blow after the Bomb exploded. The above-men-tioi.rd
whale was in the Ice, and it is our opinion that we should
not have pot that whale and many others that we diJ get, if it'
hid not been for your Bomb Lances, and we fullr recommend
thciu to the attention f those fitting out whale ships.
