Whex Mauomit had for many years endeav
ored to propagate his imjxture among his fel-lw-citizer
and instead of gaining any numlx-r
of proselytes, found his ambition frustrated and
his notions ridiculed ; he forrale his followers
the use of argument and disputation in the ad
vancing of Lis doctrines, and to rely only upon
the cimeter for their succew." When a pub
lic paper, and that paper established by govern
ment to defend its principles and its Ministry
6o far forseto its functions as to abandon the de-
fense of its patrons, and condescends to utter petty
personalities in the alence of legitimate argu
ment, wherewith to shield their acknowledged
erroneous acta that fact alone is a pretty certain
indication that their cause is indefensible and
will not bear the light of Jtruth to be east on it.
A paper so conducted, resembles a prize-fighter
in the ring, under process of punishment. Clroggy
and with whirling head, he strikes at random and
wide of the mark, and it is evident to all oliserv
ers that, for all practical purposes, he is com
pletely hors du combat.
The government organ, unfortunately for itself
and the cause it has so gallantly served, is placed
in the same position. It says: " Mr. Wyllie, the
man. is not liked by the Adcextisrr." Neither
the last editorial nor anv in the previous issues of
this journal has had a.(brd to say about Mr.
Wyllie as "a man." As such he stands now
where lie has always stood. As a politician, we
have attacked him, because his political acts arc
open to unqualified censure. As a politician, we
believe that nine-tenths of the community are
opoosed to him. The articles that have appeared
in this journal have been purely political, nor has
an expression been made use of one whit mare
severe than a long string that appeared in a cer
tain dispatch from the American Legation some
two years ago, and headed, if we remember
aright, Xo. 107, the author of which despatch
is now associated with the Minister in the Cab
inet Council. We are not aware that any of the
gentlemen who contribute to the columns of this
paper, are under obligations to Mr. Wyllie; but
if they are, we doubt not that at the proper time
they will make an acknowledgement as marked as
the favors which they have received.
There are times when it behooves the public
press to speak with Itolduess and to reiterate
truths, which, though apparent as the 6unlight,
require but the stamp of public approval tosgive
them that weight and authority which their im
portance demands. In public affairs, as too
often in private, we are apt to listen to the voice
of some syren till the nobler faculties of our na
ture become transformed, and we are changed
into the creatures of imagination. To know cor
rectly our position and to act with boldneeswhen
action is demanded of us, should be the aim of
governments as well as of individuals.
44 We' are not worst at once the course of eril
Begins so slowly and from such slight source.
An infant's hand might stem its breach with clay;
But lot the stream get deeper, and all
The power of man shall strire in vain
To turn the headlong torrent.
e have, in late numbers of our journal, as
sumed that the prospects of our country are far
from flattering that our financial condition is in
an unhealthy state that our diplomatic relations
with a powerful nation have become almost inex
tricably involved and finally that, in a measure,
the Minister of Foreign Affairs is responsible for
the loss of self-respect we, as a nation, may have
to submit to, arising from the present condition
of our political affairs. If such be the case if
our finances are on the "verge of bankruptcy if
our diplomacy is becoming a public disgrace to.
us if, instead of gaining respect at home and
abroad, our government is only losing it, there ayne
dened with a debt of hundreds of thousands, and
an annual expense for military alone, of from
$60,000 to $100,000. But thanks to the firm
opposition he has met at the Privy Council hoard,
in the Cabinet and in the Legislature -thanks to
a well-balanced public opinion which has always
opposed him his warlike theories were so far
demolished that, instead of a debt of $400,000, we
can only boast to-day of one of $40,000. ' Still,
the bellicose theory of the Minister is the same
now as when, years agoe entertained the pnb-
ic with his dramatic writings on the indispensa-
bleness of " pikes, bludgeons and sabres."
It was in 1852, we believe, that the Minister
got frightened at certain filibuster rumors sent
down from California for his special benefit, and
reported to the Legislature as follows. We quote
the extract that our readers may see what we
might now be enjoying, had the MlnLer had full
sway, as well as that he may see himself in his
own glass :
w Accordingly on the 10th of November last, the King being
absent, I gave notice that I would more before bis council for the I
organization of a force of 1300 men for the inland of Hawaii I
1100 mm jot Maut; J&ou mrn jor uai ; oTumen jor Aavai;
260 men for Mololcai ; SO men for A'iikauf and 50 mounted
lanceri la Honolulu, fur the guard of Hie Majestu't peceon.
Of the whole 6100 my proposal was that only 100 should be kept
permanently embodied and paid." Report of Secretary at War
1SS2, p. 23, ea-acf.
The visionary imagination which gave birth to
the wildest theories of a military rule and des
potism througltout the Hawaiian Islands could
fortunately find but few supporters, and themin-
j isterial castle building and fortification schemes
j collapsed and fell to the ground. There is no one
who has not been thoroughly disgusted with the
j published theories and schemes of the Minister,
I and fully satisfied that his counsel in regard to
the military, so far as they have been carried out,
t have been of permanerCinjuryto the country, and
j had they been fully realized, might have sealed
j our fate as a nation.
To a judicious establishment of police or mili
tary aid to ensure the putllic pence, and especially
to protect the person of the Sovereign, no liberal
mind can -be opposed ; but in this, as in all other
matters of 6tate, the end should conform to the
means. ' Our ability has been entirely overlooked
or rather disregarded by the Minister, whose
policy, in every public measure he has proposed,
has resembled that of a young man just launch
ing into business with the aid of his fat' er's
purse, who lays his plans and keeps his establish
ment on the scale of a millionaire, regardless of
his income', till he funis by bitter experience the
folly of his course, which can only entail on him
disgrace and ruin.
In financial matters we find him equally ob
noxious to the interests of the State. IJisJn
fluence has been to increase rather than decrease
the public expenditures. Witness his annual ap
peals for an increased Military appropriation.
But we are told that in the House of Representa
tives he " has repeatedly proposed that 25 per
cent, be deducted from all salaries exceeding
$500." Without asserting that this statement
is false, we are not prepared to receive it on the
mere ipse dixit of the Minister's organ, unless the
record of it can lie pointed out. We do not le
lieve that he has ever advocated such a reduction
in the House of Nobles or in any other public
place. . He may have suggested it in. the Privy
Council, where the seal of seoresy is supposed to
be imposed on one's acts. But that is a different
thing from publicly advocating it. On the other
hand, when the salary of the Chief Justice was
raised " 25 per cent.," and the salaries of the
various judges and clerks raisid 33 per cent.,
where then was his vote? His action belies his
" repeated propwilsj" if yer made. r Even the
salary of his own departmental clerk (whose
time, unless public rumor is more deceitful here
than usual, is partly occupied with the Minister's
! private business) was, if we remember aright,
raised at his own request, 33 per cent. A minis
ter must be judged by his acts, not by his profes
sions. Had he possessed the remotest desire to
see a reduction in the salaries, he has had ample
opportunity to take an honorable lead in " pro
posing a reduction of 25 per cent." in the salary
of the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
On almost every questi. n that has come up bo
fore the country, as everybody knows, he has haM
the tact to have something to eay on both sides,
so that proof is easily obtainable, when wanted,
that he has said this or that. Such being the
forms . us : that from . where it is now being laid
in nineteen feet, the rock suddenly shelves off, and
that to build the wall ten feet further out, would
. require one thousand more stones than are now
wanted. Most of the piles have been driven through
the coral rock, which is comparatively soft under
water. , Altogether, .when completed, new Market
Wharf will be a creditable structure for Honolulu,
and a great commercial desideratum. Mr. R. A. S.
Wood is the energetic projector and ruling spirit in
this needed public improvement, and this will, as the
other new wharves have, reflect credit on his Bkill.
Ball ox Shipboard. Last evening occurred one
of those pleasant reunions on shipboard, which have
. become so fashionable whenever our harbor is honor
ed with the presence of a vessel-of-war. The Captain
and officers of the Havannah received on board a
large company of ladies and gentlemen, with that
hospitality and polite attention for which their previ
ous visit to this port had made them so well remem
bered. The ship was moored for the occasion along
side the new esplanade, where a spacious carpeted
gtngway- was fixed from the wharf to the ship a
great improvement on the old plan of going eff in
boats. The dancing was upon the main deck, which
was festooned with flags of all nations, and entirely,
covered iti with awnings. Two novel chandeliers,
each holding fifty caudles, and formed of bayonets
'and cutlasses, shed a brilliant light over the gay
scene. A raised dais, near the stern, was erected
for their Majesties, immediately over which was a
transparency with the word " Aloha " Leaves and
flowers were tastefully arranged in, all directions, and H
the old Bhip looked as though she ignored entirely
the grim trade of war. .At 12 o'clock, a sumptuous
supper was served up on the gun-room deck, two
tables on each side groaning with their huvden of
cheer. The dancing was kept up till a late hour, and
the guests departed, well pleased with their hosts and

Ms, Editor : News is a scarce article here just

deputy's deputy called a jury through our worthy
acting Sheriff, T. W. Everett, Esq., and they rendered
a verdict of Found dead by hanging cause un
known." Afterwards it leaked out, however, that it
was all about a woman. So you see here are two love
scrapes in a short time. This is all of note that has
happened in our moral town of late. A grist of things
has occurred outside in the way of cattle-stealing and
horse-stealing, and cattle-brandinir, &c, and if
mother rumor speaks true, some are in a bad fix.
This year has been very fatal io cattle, and, in par
ticular, to horses, in nearly all parts of this island.
Some think it is caused by eating poisonous grass,
but others think it is the horse ail. The hogs are
affected also with a disease which is something new ;
they take to swelling in the head, and in twenty-four
hours are dead. Numbers of them have died in La
haina this summer from this complaint Can any of
your readers tell us what it is ?

Mr. Editor :- Please answer, for the public bene

requirements of the 14th Section by appointing one
man Supervisor over more than one taxation district
Can a man thus appointed exercise any authority
ont.cf the taxation district where he resides, if he
holds an appointment for that district ?
Can he hire a deputy at 25c or 50c. per day for
each of the taxation districts, for which he holds an
appointment, receiving himself the full pay from the
Minister of the Interior, as per Section 14 ?
Can he appoint a deputy over more than fifty tax
able persons, and has he a right, out of the public
funds, to contract to pay them at all ?
Is not the office of Road Superviser Dne of personal
trvst supposed to be conferred on account of the skill
of the incumbent, which cannot be transferred to
another, only as prescribed in Section 12?

that on him must rest, in a measure, the odium
that attaches to the present disorder. It is some
thirteen years since he was invited to participate
in the government councils, and whatever good
may have been derived from his counsel in the
earlier years of his administration, that good has
long ceased to flow from it, and the public have
long ceased to look for it. We have no wish to
detract one iota from that meed of praise, if any,
that may juiuy belong to him ; but when the pol
icy which he has endeavored to carry out is hon
estly weighed, no unbiassed mind will hesitate to
condemn it. If the interests of state demand that
that policy be changed, no personal considerations
should be allowed to outweigh them.
wrThe whole weight of his influence has invaria
bly been to foster and create an imaginary show '

however adapted to European society, is alto-

Swill-Milk. They still continue their investiga-
tions, in $ew York, as to the swill-milk business.
Here is a specimen of the testimony adduced :
" Health-Warden Louis J. Kirk said the last cow he
dissected was worse than any cow he ever saw; she
had an ulcer on her hip; the lungs were in the worst
state; an ulcer in the right lung sixteen by four
inches; the lungs were grown fist. He had found
ulcers under the skin of e will-fed cows. Oue cow
inoculated for the disease the pus spirted ten feet
from a concealed ulcer when the fore lesr was cut.
Dr. A. K. Gardner, a physician, had examined the
subject, and considered swill-milk the great cause of
infant mortality. He knew, from his own knowledge,
that children have been made severely ill by bad
milk; saw diseased cows in Sixteenth street; some of
them had in the flanks large abscesses which would
hold three or four quarts of pns; some, of them had
diseases of the lungs. He bad seen oows iu the Six
teenth street stables so diseased that they were hardly
able to stand up; after death you can easily run a
knife through the large bones,, which, in healthy
state, would be solid." A later date says :
SwiLL-Fro Milk. Having finished the swill-milk
folks, the Now York city reformers have unearthed a
new nuisance, which requires immediate' abatement,
yi-: swill-fed pork, large quantities of which find
its way into that 'city, from the adjtcent country.
The doctors eay there ia a general distemper among ;
the porkers just now, and that swill ia the cause of it.
Hence, nobody now eats pork.
