Important fratn tn Snrtrwirri T!nn-! Pro
jertcd Treaty with I'rnnrr.
nf Foreign Aflaira has given a written assurance
to the gentleman most interested in letter No. 1
that he teas not Us author, and the government
organ, with any amount of special pleading, but
without the boldness absolutely to deny its pa
ternity, endeavored to insinuate at the time of
its publication that the Minister had not that
honor. " Here the Minister has got himself into a
dilemma. He is either in the contemptible, piti
able state of being afraid to acknowledge his own
writings, or he is the open advocate of a treaty
whioh, vampyre like, would Buck the very life
blod from the nation, and leave it with a mere
shadow of nationality and respect.
Had the Minister of Foreign Relations, when
dsiaanded its authorship, come forward manfully
and acknowledged the letter (if it is his, and we
have yet to find the person who doubts that it
was ;nt at his instance,) had he stood boldly out
and refused to make the treaty for reasons given
in the letters, he would have been supported by
the entire community from the highest to the low
est ; he would have commanded all our suffrages.
3ut how does the case stand? He has signed
and now advocates a treaty which he him
self is Baid to have condemned in his private let-,
ters, iand he dares neither to acknowledge nor
deny publicly that he has done so. How sug
gestive such a state of affairs! "What an inter
esting position for a Minister of State to be placed
in! ... t4"''-
TJie Polynesian says " it is all a muddle," and
verily it is a "muddle." And is he who
has made this muddle to be allowed to sit
quietly by and watch the effect of the mischief
he has so slily brejred? Has His Majesty the
King, who is more deeply interested than us all,
in that he has the interests of the entire nation
depending on him ; has he considered that ere
long (owing to his Minister's want of judgment,
his duplicity and stupidity,) he may ha placed in
the position to act on the latter part of the 30th
article of the Constitution, with the alternative
of seeing the independence of his kingdom lost in
another manner and . its energies f jrever de
1-V.in this much to be regretted rult there ap
pp.ir now to be but one alternative. Whatever
may have by'n the aid which trio King's Council
may heretofore have bad from him, that day ap
jears to be piissed. When the confidence of the.
Council, the community, the people and the
whole nation is lost in a Minister there is no
alternative but to part with him. We have lately
seen the entire British Ministry resign their of
fices for a much l-s grave offense than this, and
since that tim? wo have seen another British
Minister resign for the errors committed in a sin
gle dispatch. Will not our great man wisely be
guided by their example, whilst the cloud rests on
elder.' on the " most ' suitable mannerof paying
honor to the memory of the man first in tear, first
in peace, and first in the hearts of his country.'?
In the foreign news columns '-we read ofthe

Hawaiian statutes make idolatry a crime; out is
there any penalty affixed ? ,
It is most devoutly to be hoped that the rulers of
this nation will not long sleep over such a demoral
izing scourge as a native hula ; but will speedily seek
to estimate it root and branch from the face of the
Hawaiian Islands, and let it pass into the oblivion of
the sins that were before the flood. A Fbiend.
fHfwiiim'Thia ship retimed on
Monday from her second voyage to Jartis Island,
with some 500 tons of guano. She reports everything
favorable at the island. Xheclipper JVhite Swalloio
made the passage thence from this port in seven days,
had discharged her ballast, and a large quantity of
water, and was taking in guano. With the gang at
work on land (26 hands) she was taking on board
alxiut fifty tons per day, and would sail for New
York about the 25th of Aug., touching for fresh sup
plies at Apia, Navigator's Islmda. A good frame
house, 20 x 40 feet, has, we learn, been erected on
the island, with shea's and every convenience for liv
ing comfortably. A supply of water for nearly a
year is also there.
JuJJ informs us that he caught some thirty or forty,
of good size, with hook and line, one morning before

will be sold soon by order of court.
Jihay Hohse Drowned. Yesterday morning John
Bradley was driving his dray ne-r Market Wharf,
when the horse commenced kicking t something, and
getting one of hisjegs oer the shafr, ran overboafw,
and before he could be got clear from the dray, was
drowned. . There were plenty of natives looking on,
and bad they rendered prompt assistance, a valaable
horse would have been saved. Bradley says they
were waiting to be offered money fur their assistance.
The Diateti or the " Prixce or Hawaii."
On the 10th inst., the new schooner called the Prince
of Ilawnii, of about 12 tons burthen, left the port of
Hanalei, Kauai, bound for Niihan n island separ
ated from Knnai by a channel of eight miles, She
had some eijrht native pisseneers on board, and a
quantity of ohia timber on deck, but unthinj in the
way of hall.-ist. Her crew consisted!" of three foreign- !
ers. John Bed, who ws part owner, a native of
Wale; George Ilfrson, an American, and a colored
man, nnme unknown. When about midway between
the two islands, a sudden sqall, so common in that
neighborhood, struck the vessel and immediately
capsized lier. There beinj no b:llat on board, she
of course flonted free?y,'nnd the foreigners managed
to ppt on her Iwttom, with some assistance from the
nitivp in record to Red, who wis a cripple, having
lot the ne of his lower limbs a year or two since.
The natives 'then struck out for the nearest Imd,
which was Niihan, supposed to have leen some fifteen
miles distant ; another account says they banded at j

Almost everybody feels anxious tovtake part in

indispensable to doa the best broadcloth suit, which
(to pedestrians especially) is a great aggravation of

Improvement in the CattisntiH of Ornuje
Some months since, our attention was called to
the sucoful budding of se-dling orange trees,
which operation not only ensures their producing
a fine fruit, but hastens their bearing several
years. An orange tree will not ordinarily bear
till it is fr.nn nine 'to ten years of ace. But a
budded tree will produce fruit several years cur
lier. This mode of budding has lately been suc-ceK-fulJy
introduced into Ivona, Hawaii, tin Mr.
GreenweH's estate, and we learn that about half

" Could the Hawaiian borrf port-on of our population
be indueed to deposit their earnings in the savings
bank instead of investing ia horse-flih and "silks, it
would in our opinion prove move productive of thrift
and consequent general mil material con:fort than
lught else we know of just now; and would the line
show up the affair theoretically and practically, in
dollars antf cents, we are s-.iig-ilue enough to antici
pate the happiest results."
the. trees operated on have proved successful, and I Frenchmen ?enenlly. On Sunday II. B. M.s frigate I
are doing well.
We have recently heard of another experiment
with the orange tres which promises to be a still
greater improvement. - It is the building of the
best varieties rf or.vng'i into the Chinese, orange
stek. This latter, if is well known, is a very
hardy species of the orange, growing in the drie st
s.'ils. and hearing fruit in three or four years
from the seed. Tlis fruit i use! "by the Chinee
fir making pri-serv. Tiie tr is of a rapid
growth, reaching, iu moist an 1 fivnrabjo pjcf-s,
r. height of fifteen f.-et in three years. Dr. llille
brand is tli? rst tliat we have known to experi
ment saceessfully with this tree, and be has now
half-a-doz'n doing very well.
Tiie method is the same as has l3on practiced
in other countries in relation to the pear, which
is budded or graft ed on to the genuine st-ck, and
boars fruit much sooner than on the parent stock.
The experiment with the orange tree promises to
become of as great value to fruit-growers here as
the other has in other countries. One of the
principal drawbacks to engaging in the cultiva
tion tf orange trees is the length of time neces
sary to bring them into full bearing an orchard
requiring from ten to twelve "years before it can
Ikj of any profit. By tin's mode of propagating,
an orchard can, in ordinaVy situations, be brought
into fulb bearing in half tho time. The China
orange being much hardier will grow in more
esposed localities than the ordinary varieties.
It is also much less liable to be attacked by in
sects. In such districts as Koloa aud Xawiiiwili,
onKauai, Wailuku and Makawao, on Maui, and
exposed localities on Hawaii, where the common
orange w ill not thrive and bear except in vallies,
and even herein Honolulu, we think that tbe
China orange budded with the bettor varieties
will be found to grow and produce well. The
experiment is -one which should be tested, and
w hope that all who have time and opportunity
will make it.
As a hodgs plant, the China ornnge tree is re
commended for its rapid growth, strong wood,
and numerous thorns, which render it impassa
ble to any animal.' Its flowers furnish' the best
of food for bees to make their honey, and wrTere
ever they are k'-'pt, this orange should be culti
vated. About Honolulu,, the China orange lias
become quite abundant, but we are not certain
that it is growing on the other islands of our group.
Seeds can easily be prfxnired here and the tree
introduced into every di-trict. - .

An OM Relic.
We have been favord by Mr. "NT. R. Seal with
the perusal of quite a curiosity in the newspaper
line a copy of the Ulster County Gazette,"
printed at Kingston, Ulster County, New York
State, on the 4th of January, 1800. The typo
graphical execution, though full of errors, is
cle.irly done, and tbe types show an impression
which will compare favorably with the news
papers of some latitudes even at the present day.
It is curious to note the dates of " latest intelli
gence." Seventy-two, days from London, eighty
from Paris five from Washington City. George
Washington had expired at Jlount Vernon on
the 14th of December, and the Gazette, dress
ing its columns in mourning, gives the speeches
and resolutions in Congress on the announcement
of the national bereavement, winding up the
description of the funeral ceremonies on the bank
of the Potomac, with the following words : " The
sun was now setting. Alas ! the sun of glory
was set forever. Xo the name of Washington
the American President and General will
triumph over Death ! The unclouded brightness
of his glory will illuminate the future ages." . '
Among the resolutions of the House of Repre
sentatives occurs the following, moved by Mr.
Marshall, and contains in its last clause a few
words which have become to Americans, from
frequent nse, " familiar as household words :"

Dr. Frick's LrxrrraEs. By a communication from
Dr. Frick in another column it will fiscen that he

attention of our community, before the busy season
commences, ns shall enable the Doctor to carry out
his original intention of lecturing.
taT" Mr. II. F. Johnson, who visited Honolulu some
months ago from San Francisco for the ostensible pur

a lecture at tbe Fort Street Church, and afterward
returned to San Francisco, was thrown from his

Francisco, and died in consequence of the accident.

allowed to do with impunity 1
If the law was made to protect the public, I pro
test against the practice that allows the sailors of the
Ilarannah, or those of any other mau-of-war, to ride
abut as the former have been doing the past week,
without a single arrest by the police. It is notorious
that if a s:ii!or from a wh ile ship, or a merchant
ship, should be caught riding through our s-treets as
men-of-war sailors have ridden during the last few
days, they would be taken to the lock-up as soon as
three or four kanaka constables could tote thera there.
'Indeed, I saw with my own eyes, v;ithiu a few weeks,
the captain of a foreign vessel, lfing in port, con
ducted to the statiou-house for riding, not half so
recklessly as scores of man-of-war sailors have ridden
through all the streets of Ilonfilulu within the past
Mr. Editor, this is not jv'st, right or honest ! The
law is a good one, and should be respected ; and why
is it not enforced .' Can you tell ? Do you suppose
the native policemen are so suddenly inactive with
out having received instructions from some quarter
to let the man-of-war sailors do as they like ?
Now, this partiality, this favoritism for man-of-war's
men, is not fair, and 1 advie the powera that
lw to stop it, or they may expect trouble if they at
tempt to execute upon i'ankee whaling sailors, nexj
fall, the law which they allow man-of-war sailors to
break with the most notorious impunity.
If you think I talk at random on this subject, 1
appeal to scores of people in Honolulu, who can
attest the assertions I make iu regard to the impu
nity with which this furious riding is allowed. And
on one occasion, when three sailors rushed up Fort
street at a pace that would have won the king's
purse, fwre, I asked a couple of native constables,
who were quite composedly enjoying the sport, why
they did not arrest them, as they would have done
had they ben sailors from a whale ship, when they
Steplied, uh an assurance that, in their opinion,
settled thenattcr entirely, "Ihvianuwa!"

impunity r the violation of law, whether he oko

Jn Hawaii Rrlurnins ta Idolatry
Mr. Editor : It may not be known to all who
read tbe Commercial Advertiser that, in the ancient
days of Hawaiian heathenism, the hula was favored
with two gods, one called Laka, a niale, and the other
Keawe, a female. Under the patronage of these two,
the licentious songs and disgusting orgies of the hula
were exhibited, to inflame the passions of the young
and prepare them early for such acts as, in the soft
ened language of kindness, are now known the world
over as the Hawaiian' besetting sin.
A note from Pali Koolan says, " Do you know we
have idols here, images set up, before whom the
people offer garlands to the gods of the hula?"
I am told that at Waialua also the hula companies
have Bet up idols the patrons of their hulasv before
whom pigs and other sacrifices have been offered dur
ing the past few months. . But, by. a public notice,
posted on the enclosure, all church members and their
pestik jJfe warned not to enter its sacred precincts ' ;
A few weeks Bince a party of the devotees of the !
hula are said to have performed a pilgrimage to the
- Cape of Kaena, where spirits have from ancient times
: been supposed to hold a dread abode, performed their
'devotions and returned. ; v i. .
: These hulas are now infatuating the people of a
large portion of ;Qahu. m Schools arc thinly attended;
bv Williams, luaster of shin Phirnix. a?ra!n.Bt. hir
owners. The facts were, that one Pendleton had"!
originally sailed from the port ot New London as
master of said ship. Fendletop had made two sea
sons in her on the North West, and had returned to
the Sandwich Islands, ne was here met by instruc
tions from the agents to go another season, before re
turning home. Pendleton being unwilling to be gone
from home another season, substituted tlie plaintiff
who was at the inlands, in his place as master. Plain
tiff took charge of said ship and made a very success
ful voyage, returning to the port of Honolulu with
1500 barrels whale, 100 sperm, and 24,000 pounds
bone. Soon after droppiug his anchor in said port,
Pendleton, who had in the mean time returned home
and bad again been sent out by, the agents of the
Phanix for that purpose, came on board and dis
placed Williams, and brought the Ship under his
(P.'s) charge back to the port of New London.
This suit was brought by Williams to recover dam
ages for bis removal before said voyage was com
pleted. The amount of damages claimed being his
expenses from the Sandwich Islands to New London
he hsiviug before recovered the amount of his wages
in a uoei sun hi me lsianus. ,
The defence set up was that Pendleton as master,
had no power of substitution, and that therefore his
contract was not binding upon the owners. That
Williams was an improper person to be substituted,
having the season lefore lost the ship Jefferson in the
Ochotsk Sea, and that he bad drawn draft on the
owners of tho Phanix to an excessive amount for re
pairs and supplies 12,000), and that they were
justified in removing him, and not liable in damages.
The case involved many points of maritime law in
teresting to ship masters and owners, and some con
siderable conflicting testimony. , The Jury were una
ble to agree though sentout for a reconsideration sev
eral times by the Court. We understand they stood
nine for plaintiff, aud three for defendants. JZ X.

-"Singular- Lawsuit in Fbaxck. In 1816, a marl

husband to live with s military officer named Merle
at Nismes. In 1819 she gave birth to a boy, who was
registered in his mother's name at Leplanquois. Tbe
woman, though she declared herself the mother, did
not name the father. - In 1828 the woman died.. The
child referred to was the only issue by this cohabita

had lived with her, wrote a letter to her mother, an
