THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2.
Tue salute of one hundred guns on Monday
evctiiug lat, was the epontan-jous outburst of
public iecling on the action of His Majesty in
declining to ratify the treaty with Frauce. It
was a popular demonstration of joy on the defeat
of the efforts of the Ministry to enslave our Sover
eign, disperse our commerce, and cripple ail our
national prosjajrity. It is a public condemnation
of the course of tfle ministry aa marked and severe
as any that has ever been shown in this or any j
other country, and it will be well if they heed
the Vi ice which ha- been uttered.
The history of this treaty, so far as known, is
briedy told. Alttr every former overture had
been rejected on one side or another, it waa
thought by our minieters (R. C. yllie and . I
II. Allen, then Minister ot Finance) to strike out
in a new line and concede what was axked by
the French Minister. The original draft of this
French treaty is understood to have been drawn
up by the latter gentleman. This document, as
approved and signed by the King's Minister of
Foreign Affairs and the French Coi-ruiseioner,
was sent to Paris for the approval of the Emj-eror,
by whom it was signed and returned to these
islands in May last, for the action of this Govern
ment. Tiie time fixed by agreement at which
their action should be made known was the 29th
of August, and as that day fell on Sunday, it was
extended to the 30th. The treaty was laid before
the Privy Council, and sonie weeks ago in July
we believe the committee of that body to which
it was referred reported to the Council that it
was unwise and inexpedient to ratify it. During
the last month, and particularly during the past
week, it has been the subject of frequent pro
tracted sesei jns, at all of which it has met with
warm opposition from a majority of the Council,
and been most strenuously defended by the g'n
tiemen named as its originators, who, we under
stand have made lengthy speeches of from five to
seven hours to show the expediency of ratifying
the treatyl This, we believe, has been the main
ground of their arguments. On Saturday after
noon, a vote was taken by the Council, after a
lengthy discussion, and we are informed that it
stood six in favor of the treaty, and ten or eleven
against it. The following are reported to have
voted in favor : R. C. Wjllie, Minister of For
eign Affairs; D. L. Gregg, Minister of the Trea
sury ; E. II. Allen, Chief Justice ; Prince Lot
Kamehameha ; Charles G. Hopkins, Editor of the
Polynesian; and C. KAnaioa six in all. We
have already given the sultance of the objections
able articles of the treaty, on which the injunc
tion of secrecy still remains. When this injunc
tion is removed, we understand it will be made
Thanks to the wisdom aVid sound judgment of
the King, whose sovereignty was sought to be
pawned away to establish the reputation of a
Minister thanks to the native chief members of
the Council, whose honesty, good sense and loyalty
has put to shame the recreant Ministers thanks
to Judge Robertson, Wm. Webster, and Messrs.
Rookeaod Armstrong, who have opposed with
truly loyal hearts and with unyielding voice the,
perfidious supporters of the treaty thanks to all
these, the star of hope still beams above tha
horizon. - " . .
Our readers well know that we .have, for the
past few weeks, opposed tr.e ratification of this
treaty for reasons of state." and that our course
has been in full harmony with public opinion;
And the public have good cause to be joyous at
f tLa final result. Especially when it ia considered
that tl treaty, objectionable as il ; ja fa itself, j
carries with it a change in our tariff which would
onoaeetionahlT work a disartroua effect on the
commerce of the islands, which no future legisla
tion could repair. The two 'documents tariff
and treaty were so allied that one of them could
not operate without the other, and we have seen
that the attempt to enforce the defunct treaty of
1855 was iniquitous in itself.
" But the salute on Monday last carries with it
an expression wnicn snouia not ue uveriooitcu iu
this connection. And that is, a public disappro-
Yal of the course of the Minister of Foreign Rela
tions, and also of Chief Justice Allen, so far as
he has aided in supporting this treaty. Some few
have thought that we have been severe in expos
ing the acts and conduct of the Minister. But here
we have a public and most unequivocal conaem
nation of his official course. Even a child cannot
mistake the meaning of this demonstration or fail
to discern the indignation and opprobium that
attaches to his official conduct. And we but ex
press public opinion when we say that after the
recent disgraceful defeat of the Minister, after
the open and unqualified disapproval of his course
by our Sovereign in the rejection of this treaty, af
ter so marked and glaring a condemnation of him
and his official acts as the discharge of 100 guns
over his defeat we say, after all these unequivo
cal expressions of dissatisfaction, a resignation
of the Minister of Foreini Affairs would be hailed
with public joy.
Bear in mind that the Minister has been de
feated, not on a prospective line of policy, not on
any future act that ho designed to perform, but
on an act that fie had, as far as in him lay, com
pleted n his own responsibility. He has been
defeated, not on some point of minor importance,
but on a matter involving the sovereignty of the
King and the political existence of the State
which he would have bartered away and
for what? lie has not been defeated- in
a public assemblage where party spirit may
exercise an influence and party views be ex
pressed in direct hostijy ty to those of the Executive ;
but it has transpired in the Council of the Sover
eign himself, where unanimity is supposed to be
an essential element. How ominious is this state
of things. Some two or thr!e years ago, the
King's attorney was pushed out of the Privy
Council tj suit the whims of a Minister, and
secure unity ; and shortly after Mr. Haalelea, too,

This number, we believe, constitutes an Impe
rial salute, according to the military regulations
of the European Countries Twenty-one is called a
national or roval salute, but whenever the day or
the occurrence to be commemorated is thought to
be " plus grand" nothing less than one. hundred
guns are called f jr. Lasi Friday, when it !e
came generally known that the French Treaty
had nearly arrived at a crisis 44 to be or not to
fe' the suggestion was made that the citizens
demonstrate their joy at its r?jection by firing a
salute'. That it would be rejected finally, no one
seemed to doubt, the wish, perhaps, la-ing father
to the thought. The idea of the salute was hailed
as an excellent one, and preparations immediately
made to carry it out. Always ahead whenever
energy and public spirit is required, Capt. Thomas
Srencer procured two cannon, and made up one
hundred cartridges. But it was not until Mon
day that the public were assured that the Treaty
had fallen through, and the enthusiasm of
some bad begun to ooze out at their finger ends
But Capt. S. determined that the salute should
be fired, and at nine o'clock in the evening the
quiet echoes of the harbor and wharves were
aroused. A party of aiiiateurs, under the direc
tion aforesaid, loaded and fired two little iron six
pounders, with remarkable regularity and pre
cision up to the fiftieth round, when some thought,
ful one of the party srrggeeted that it would be
advisable to let them cool. After a delay of
about five minutes,, the stentorian voice of the
head of the party was heard 44 No. 1, fire !" and
the fusillade was recommenced. In order to let
the good people of Honolulu hear the reports, the
muzzles of the pieces, instead of being pointed
seaward, were directed right inland, and among
the light wooden buildings in the immediate
neighborhood some few bottles and articles. of
crockery were demolished by the concussion. In
a neighboring drug store, a jar of some sort of
fluid was thrown down, but the cannoneers still
banged away regardless alike of the crash of
crockery or the mixing of drugs, until one hun
dred and three guns had been fired over the grave
of the treaty and the tariff. Three hearty cheers
were then given for the commerce and whaling
fht of Honolulu, winding up with 41 the tiger,"
and the crowd quietly betook themselves to their
homes. The spot for firing the salute would
doubtless have been better located on the Esplan
ade. We learn that after the salute was fired some
persons went through the streets and made a
charicari serenade near the premises of the French
Commissioner, and visited one or two other
dwellings. We regret this demonstration, and
feel assured that all honorable citizens condemn
it. As far as we can learn, the persons engaged
in it had no connection with the Balute. A for
eign consul or ambassador is the representative of
a Sovereign and nation, and his person and resi
dence partake of the same sanctity that belongs to
a Sovereign. The persons who engaged in the
serenade (if it was intended as a disrespect to the
French Commissioner) are guilty of an open vio
lation of tbe law, and liable to arrest and penalty.
In regard to the position of the French Ambas
sador, on this treaty question, -no reasonable per
son can or baa any right to inputs blame to him
for any demands he may make on this govern
meat. If the demands are unjust, the blame of
conceding them lies with our Ministry, who alone
are responsible! v ock serenades of the latter are
a very difierent thijigv; f ' I

.HaWaiiakkas aoa w. About a year ago we an
nounced that one or two of our Sandwich Island
boys had taken tb palm at Tale College. - By the
last mail we learn that they still keep in the van. In
the class that graduated at Williams' College in Jane
three yonng men from these islands are announced
at tbe bead. Henry Lyman (son of Rer. D. B.Ly.
man of Hilo,) took the valedictory oration the high
est honor of tbe College. . James Alexander of Maui,
and Curtis J. Lyon of Hawaii, took the mathematical
and histo-ical orations, which rank next. These
honors were carried from a graduating class of about
sixty. All tbe above young men were prepared for
college under the tuition of Rev. Mr. Dole, formerly
of Punahou ; and the mere fact of tbeir carrying off
the collegiate laurels from their American classmates,
is a Bilent but convincing testimonial to the ability
and thorough training of their former tutor, which
will outlive The acts and assertions to tbe contrary 'of
the President of tbe Board of Education.

with choice engravings, some of them colored. The
terms are $5 per annum. The Magazine was started
under the auspices of Mr. O. C. Wheeler, well known
'as the Secretary of the California State Agricultural

A GaATirrixa Testimonial. A year or more ago
the American Bible Society presented to His Majesty,
in cornjnoD with other Sovereigns, a beautiful Bible of
the large and new edition printed by them. These
presents were generally acknowledged by the return
of autograph letters from the several Sovereigns.
We are permitted to extract the following lines from
a letter written by the Secretary of that Society, al
luding to our Sovereign's reply :
Of the many letters received from RuTers, we
had scarcely one better written than his, and none
' read with greater satisfaction. It was demonstra-
tive proof of the transforming power of the Oospel.

with as large a rjiiantity of goods, may be looked for

Ma. Emtob, Sir: I see by your paper of the
19th inst. that you hare republished the two letters,
supposed to have been written by " a person holding
a high official position in these islands" to some per
son in England, and which were first published 'is
tbe Liverpool Timet. Of tbe republication of these
very extraordinary letters in your editorial columns
I do not complain, as I am constrained, in Yiew of
tbe circumstances which induced their republication
to consider you justifiable in so doing. ,
If the national functionaries of this government
desire to surrender their national sovereignty by
treaty, and place themselves and the Hawaiian sub
jects under a French Catholic protectorate, let them
do so. On that subject, not being personally inter
ested, I have nothing to say. But one of those anon
ymous letters contains a sentence which I, as an
American citizen, cannot permit thus to appear a sec
ond time without comment. It is as follows: "Shortly
afterwards the Americans were, with extreme diffi
culty, prevented from annexing them Sandwich 11-
andt as if not materially prevented, were by the
moral and diplomatic force brought to bear upon tbe
subject of this annexation or usurpation induced to

L. . , . ...
the territorial cravings of the Americans, whenever
land allotments can be ob;ained and ground for slave
cultivation. Ul this scurvy imputation 1 do com
plain. It is. in view of incontrovertible facts, not
only unjust, but a base calumny, which should be
resented byevery independent American: a calumny
which I am unwilling to believe could have emanated
from any man occupying a high official position in
tbe Hawaiian government, as I am unwilling to be
lieve that the King would, under any circumstances,
sanction the use of such vallainous language towards
the United States or tbe American people; or that he, in
his wisdom, would retain in his Government Council
such a vile calumniator of a nation and people, to
whom his own nation and people are, in fact, under
greater obligations for business, agricultural and
commercial prosperity, and educational and religious
institutions, than all the world besides. But if he
does sanction tbe publication of such an unmitigated
libel against the United States, and retain the vile
perpetrator of it in his Cabinet or Pn'ry Council,
then he may expect his government ultimately to
sink, and finally become the scorn and derision of the
world, for no government can be long sustained under
the supervision and management of such unjust, dis
Now what are the facts in the case ? It is notori
ous, and must have been known, and distinctly un
derstood, by the writer of those infamous letter that
the United States have not, since the close of the Rev
olution, which resulted in an acknowledgment of their
j independence by the Mother Country, acquired a sin
gle foot of territory, except that which has been ob
: tained by voluntary session, fair purchase, or honora
, ble treaty. But how is it with Mother England,
. where the base libel first made its public appearance:
j how much territory has she added to her national
domain since the days of JVUliam the Conqueror
I which has not been obtained by unholy conquest, and
j in which her national hands have not been imbrued
J in human blood ? Let history answer,
j It is true that the institution of African slavery
i still exists in. some of the American States ; but it is
j not true that the federal government of the United
States ever established it in any of the States ; nor
has 6he ever had the power to establish, or abolish it
' anywhere, as no such power has ever been conferred
upon her by the Sovereign people. Nor has she, by
any act of Sovereignty, ever sought to obtain land
; allotments and ground for slave cultivation." This
: is a fact clearly and conclusively proved by the his-
; tory of the American Government itself. At the com-
mencement of the war for independence, every organ
ized colony on the continent had more or less slaves
which were legally held by English enactments. At
the close of the war, in twelve out of the thirteen
colonies slavery still legally existed. The black curse
had been, by law, established there long before the
commencement of the revolution, through the brutal
cupidity of Mother England herself, who had been
for centuries deeply and extensively engaged in the
slave trade ; and, if history can be relied upon, even
Queen Flizabeth herself was a partner, individually;
in the profits of that black commerce throughout he r
entire reign. Since the organization of the national
government under the Constitution, a period of only
about seventy years, twenty-two new etates have been
added to the original thirteen ; still there are now
hut fifteen State9 in which slavery exists, consequently
the orieinal twelve have enined but three.
On the other hand, the original one free State has
trained eighteen ; and in four of the still existing
slave States, slavery has, by the great general laws of
Nature, not only become very unprofitable in fact,
but must ultimately run out ; and it would have
been long since formally abolished, if the nefarious
leaders and English emissaries of the abolition
j fanatics in the North had been promptly hung at the
j commencement of their earsed political crusade
j against the South. In all candor, I now ask the
author of that letter whether these laets lurnisn the
least evidence to justify him in his statement, or even
to induce in him the belief that tbe United States, or
the people, who are the legally constituted Sovereigns
of that eountry, are cravingly" seeking to annex
these Islands, or any other territory on the globe, to
their vast national domain, for the pnrpose of extend
ing the institution of slavery Most certainly not.
And vet. the writer of that villainous letter, whoever
he may be, must have been entirely conversant with
the indubitable historical facts referred to ; and he
must have also known that these Islands were, a few
years since, offered to the United States, and the offer
rejectcH. I am, therefore, constrained to regard him
as a deliberatcintentional calumniator of my Govern
ment and ftllow-countrymen.

The Fraser River Mixes. The news from that
quarter appeared quite as favorable as any preced
ing. The San Francisco Bulletin of Aug. 7 says :
The news received on Sunday from the Fraser
River mining region is, in our opinion, more favora
ble than any that has reached us for some time past.
In the first place, it now is certain that there is no
actual suffering for the want of provisions among
those waiting on the streams for the water to fall, a
was generally supposed to be the case a week or two
ago. Though many articles of comfort were lacking,
the prime necessaries of life- meat, bread and coffee
were possessed in sufficient quantities by the miners
to prevent sufferiug from famine. .The most favor
able feature of the news, however, we have not allud
ed to. We mean the discovery of a practicable route to
the head-waters of Fraser River, over which supplies I
- v . . -i j rf .. i
of provisions can be easily conveved as son as a trail
has been opened. All the facts about that region,
prove the existence of rich cold fields in ew Cale.
and which to

Tbe following is Governor Douglass address to the
miners, which we copy from the same paper :
"Mt Friends: You wish me to speak to you
about Fraser River, and to get my advice about going
there, and my opinion of the country. Now I will tell
you all plainly, that I will not take the responsibility
of giving any advice on the subject You have all
heard what has been said of Fraser River, and I
know nothing more about the gold than has already
been told you by others. Had you sent to ask my
opinion about Fraser River before you left California,
I would have told you, one and all. not to leave your
quiet homes ; not to give up the substance for a
shadow, and to wait patiently until something more
definite was known about the country. Now, sup
pose I were to tell you so. Suppose I were to advise
you one and all, to return immediately to your homes,
without going further, what would the answer be i
Why, you would all refuse to do so ; you would say
that course will never suit. After the trouble and
expense we have had in coming here, we must go to
the end we must see the elephant And perhaps
you might think that I had some object to gain In
keeping yon from going to Fraser River. v
" Now I know, men, what you wish me to tell you.
You wish me to say there are lots of gold in Fraser
River, but that I will not say, because I am not cer
tain of the fact myself. But this I will tell you as
my own settled opinion, that I think the country is
full of gold, and that east and north and south of
Fraser River, there i a gold field of incalculable
value and extent I have told our gracious Queen
so ; and I now tell you so, and if I mistake not, you
are the very men who can prove by your courage aad
enterprise, whether mf opinion be right or wrong.
Remember. I do not give you that statement as an
established fact ; but simply as ma opinion, founded
on what I have actually seen myself, and heard from
others who know the eountry. ,
Now what more can I say to you, but go on and
prospect, and in a few short weeks you will be able to
tell me what Fraser River is. Take mining tools and
food in abundance ; you will then be independsnt cf
others, and may jo to whatever part of the oouttry
you choose.-; ; - . . . . . - . . . .
