THURSDAY, JANUARY 13.
Ix 3Ir. Wjllie's address to the Royal Hawai
ian Agricultural Society we notice the enuncia
tion of the principle, that no claim lor trespass
by animals ought to be allowed, wliere tbe land
u unincloeed by fence, followed up by the as
sertion that be ' proposed an act to that effect to
tho Legielaturc of J830. No doubt it was so
since he says it, but we were not before aware of
it. . We recollect well of a persistent effort made
by one of the member of the Legislature of 1852
to pass a bill embodying the above principle in
fact a regular Massachusetts fence law ; but it
was fairly ecouted from the ball, carrying away
some feathers of the aspiring Lycurgus. A sec
ond bill was introduced, much modified from the
first, but it succeeded little, if any . better. Fi
nally a third, all by the same member, so terri
bly razeed from the fiist bill that it bad not suffi
cient altitude to project a shadow. It simply
recoenized a fence as leal rronertTof the owner.
I and in that state passed by one majority, not
withstanding the opposition of Messrs. Rhodes,
Marshall and Robertson, the ablest members of
that House. It ascended to the House of Nobles,
and there met swift rejection.
Here was a glorious chance for Mr. "Wyllie to
plant a " protest,' if nothing more, that would
have thriven to bis credit this day. He might
have loaned a single beam of approving counte
nance, at least, to encourage a poor fellow while
struggling like a drowning man to save his bant
ling. He might have done all this, but we never
beard of it. We suspect the Secretary at War,
like many other able warriors, is sometimes indif
ferent to the sufferings of his soldiers, but, for the
credit of human nature, we hope we are mistaken.
His "proposed act" may be classed with his
other claims, Buch as being the first to propose the
introduction of steam navigation, dredging Hono
lulu harbor, tc. measures talked stale by the
community at large before his claim to public
gratitude as originator were known through his
reports made and published at the public ex
pense. The public, we guarantee, will feel amply
compensated for the outlay in knowing thereby
with certainty who their benefactor is.
Be all this as it may, it is certain the mustard-seed-like
leaven planted in 1850 by Mr. Wyllie,
has grown apace, as all must admit. Now we have
a statute implying that a fence is legal property,
not only, but making it a special trespass for ani
mals to break through it. Every person ia the
kingdom, any way interested in the matter, will,
we dare say, acknowledge that the present statute
is a great improvement upon the old system. We
all see plainly now what a shocking affair the
joint resolution respecting estrays, " . passed
Nov. 7, 184G imposing a penalty of five dollars
for each and every animal stepping accidently
upon un fenced, uncultivated and useless ground
really was. We see- that the severe reWgious
training of the natives had not elevated them be
yond the temptation to make the legitimate use
of such a trap thrown at their feet. The shadow
of that law hits passed over us like a nightmare,
leaving the slime of perjury, idleness and disor
ganized neighborhoods in its train, and not a
particle of planting interest promoted as was ex
pected of it. The res dutions were framed with
the best intentions we have no doubt, but a little
knowledge of the law and history of other coun
tries .relating to the subject, would have informed
the makers that the principle involved was im
practicable in old, civilized communities, much
let here. In fact, it was a special statute array
ing pjverty, vice, retrogradation and numbers
against ti e progressive efforts of the more wealthy
and enlightened few placing all the weapons in
the hands of the former. A dangtrous exjperi
ment. . We are through with it, however, thank
God, and we hope the love of sans-cvl ticism will
never tempt us to do the like again.
But as the subject of trespass and estrays is
now before the Legislature, cannot the present
law be improved a little? We think so ; and if
the Ministers will but lend a helping hand,
instead of looking smilingly on, they shall
enjoy all the credit, if euccceeful. It seems that
the old pound beneficiaries bad sufficient influence
in the Legislature to still retain the principle of
trespass and no fence in the present law, passed
Sept. 15. 1856, to the extent of twelve and a half
cents. A tall tumble from five dollars, and very
gratifying to the honestly interested. We are
not disposed to growl at the Legislature for pro
viding a twelve and half cent cushion to break
the fall of such as bad to come down, malgrc
bongre; still it is twelve and half cents loided,
and it behooves others as well as ourselves to have
the matter righted. From our own observation,
from reports, and from the columns of the I lac
Hawaii, we are assured, beyond doubt, that the
' smoke of the torment" is still ascending from
the pit, notwithstanding admission is only twelve
and a half cents. Tbe more cunning have still a
pretext to impose upon the ignorant by magnify
ing the law, and when that will not succeed, they
have only to advertise in the Hat that 44 every
horse, mule, ass, bog or neat cattle" breaking
their close, where there is none, must pay to
the owner thereof the sum of SI or Sa, as the
case may be. This generally does the business, as
expected. We regret to record that some for
eigners have done the same thiDg. Ti?y must
know that such an advertisement (we do not wish
to lessen the Hoe's advertising business) carries
with it no legal right to demand one or five dol
lars for trespass upon their lands. We willingly
believe they are laboring under a mistake. Feel
ing themselves injured by the coming of other ani
mals upon their grazing lands, they seek redress
through the twelve and a half cent trespass chan
nel, by enlarging its bounds, instead of the dam
age provision which the statute plainly gives
them. There is no doubt but that the owner of
grazing land is injured by the trespassing of
other's cattle, and his proper remedy ' is a claim
for damages, and not for trespass, as that only
gives color of right to tho operations of the tres
pass merchants. Land not used for any purpose
had better pasture any and everybody's animals
than lay idle, as it would thereby benefit the
owner of the animals, as well as the absentee land
owner, by manuring his land.
Our motive ia advocating a fence law and the
principle that, in the absence of a legal fence,
there can be no trespass, is higher than merely
dollars and cents. - This principle, although just,
and the only one that holds in civilized countries,
may with difficulty be fully introduced here, from
the fact that both branches of the legislature may
not unite on the measure. But, as we said be
fore, some improvement on the present law can
be devised. .
Aside from the truth of the principle involved,
we maintain that no successful civilized farming
will ever be seen here until planting and stock
feeding are made to go together. To effect that
proper interchange of elements, upon which the)
lasting fertility of soils depends, animals (and the
greater variety the better) must be resorted to.
This has become an established fact in agricul
tural science, and requires no proof from us.
This being admitted, every cultivated laud would
require to be fenced, hence the propriety of every
land bearing its equal share of cost in making a
We hope to see the day, and have the pleasure
to record the fact, that manv, if not most Hawai
ian farms, have other than merely boundary
fences. To see that noble animal, tho horse, put
to no better use than starving at a stake, or
brought out to exhibit only the finery or horse
manship of the owner, is a sad spectacle. - wn
fenced premises, animals are easily trained to do
all th heavy brute labor required on the farm,
and the mere training of which, and the mechan
ical skill evolved to accomplish the work, would
be immeasurably elevating, compared to tbe
present system of hand-plowing and buman-pack-
ine to market, while tbe horses and bullocks are
tied to the stake or traveling over a neighbor's
patches. We have no patience and little sympa
thy with any person or people who could feel con
tented with our present agricultural condition.
To make fences is to employ the idle, to harden
the body, to purify the heart, to promote peace
among neighbors, to enrich the laborer and na
tion, in fact it is among tbe excelsior mottoes, and
we fervently hope the legislators, now in session,
will remember it in time to save the new Civil
Code from the disgrace of the present trespass
Through the courtesy of Lieut. Reynolds, we
have received a sample of native wine made by
Mr. V. Knudsen. of Waimea. Kauai. That
place, like the valley of Eshcol of old, has for
thirty or more years been fanned for the size and
excellence of its grapes. Long before the policy
or impolicy of wine manufacture in the Hawaiian
group was questioned, the reputation of 44 Wai
mea wine," occasionally made by one of that
honored pioneer band of missionaries, long since
gathered to his rest, was known from Niihau to
Ka'u. - An anecdote, which is told ns having oc
curred some years ago, illustrates more forcibly
than any logic, the superiority of the wine re
ferred to. The stock of wine for communion service
at the old Stone Church, no matter where, had
become exhausted, and the pastor had no alterna
tive in his efforts to obtain an article suited to the
dignity of those for whom it was intended, but to
send to Waimea, from whence a good supply was
procured. But on tasting of it, it was found to
possess such a delicious flavor and to ho so supe
rior to anything heretofore used, that it was
deemed too good for the purpose and a substitute
was manufactured' for the occasion. There is
evidently a peculiarity in the climate of that dis
trict favoring this fruit. Some years ago,- a few
bunches of grapes from Waimea were exhibited
here, which the late Chief Justice Lee said he
had never seen equalled in the size and beauty of
the berry and in the length and weight of the
The sample of wine which we have received is
of a rich and clear color, (resembling a brown
sherry) a most delicious aroma, and in its taste
resembles Muscat wine, in the opinion of several
experts to whom we have referred it. It differs
from any native wine we have before seen in. its
clear color and its siceet taste. Most of the wines
heretofore made have a sour taste, not very agree
able. We have not learned what quantity of
wine Mr. K. has been able to produce, but sup
pose this to be the result of his first experiment
from vines planted, we believe, some three years
ago. We congratulate him on the production of
a wine which if he succeeds in manufacturing it
to any extent must supercede in a great measure
the imported article, as it will most certainly
become a favorite with all who use it. The
locality which he has chosen for bis vineyard is
unquestionably to become the 44 Los Angeles" of
our kingdom. Its mild and even temperature
favors the manufacture of wine after the juice is
expressed as well as the growth of the grapes.
The mere raising of grapes is not the most im
portant part of tho manufacture of wine. The
adaptation of the temperature to successful fer
mentation is probably the greatest point to be
We have always viewed with favor the opening
of this new branch of agriculture as tending not
only to develope the latent resources of the coun
try, but also as promoting industry ns well as the
health of those who from habit or otherwise re
quire its use. If a pure article of domestic wine
is produced, and furnished at a reasonable price,
it must supercede to some extent, as it does in all
wine countries, the use of stronger and deleterious
spirits. The quantity of wine consumed in the
kingdom during 1857, was at least 3000 gallons,
at a probable cost of over $15,000, which sum,
if our wine were produced within our territory,
would be so much added to our national capital.
But it is not solely to supply the local consumption
with a more whole some article of wine than can bo
imported; we look forward to the day when it may
become an item of considerable importance in our
The subject of wine manufacture is now up be
fore the Legislature, and while it is unquestion
ably politic to encourage it, too much care can
not bo taken in guarding against an abuse of the
privilege granted in its manufacture. We do not
believe that it is .necessary or wise to allow manu
facturers in remote districts to sell at retail. We
would not wish to see needless obstacles interposed
to the encouragement of any new branch of in
dustry. All that the manufacturer asks is to le
able to dispose of his wine as fast as produced
And such an article as the sample now shown us
will find no difficulty in meeting a rapid and re
munerating sale under the present restriction to
wholesale. To allow the retailing of wine in remote
districts is simply to establish a dram-shop
pest in every district, for every one knowe that
all descriptions of liquor could be disposed of
thus as easily as it now is at the beer shops in
Labaina ; and the gate once legally opened, it
would be found a Herculean task to close it by
any future legislation.
During the past week the Lower House of the
Legislature has been quite industrious, or at all
events, has got through a good many sections of
the Civil Code, having arrived as far as 634, or
about one-half the entire number. Some im
portant amendments have been made in the Code,
among which may be noticed the striking out of
the obnoxious section in regard to inward pass
ports a pet measure of the Foreign Office. The
provisions in regard to licenses to hawk and ped
dle were also stricken out, it having been stated
that the present system was productive of great
evil in some remote districts, the business being
in the bands of the low Chinese, who demoralize
tbe people by keeping them constantly in debt
The claim of William Jarrett, who in 1852 was
mulcted in the sum of $8000 by government, and
now asks to be recompensed, on the ground that
tbe charge of embezzlement then brought against
him was false, has been referred to a joint com
mittee of tbe two Houses. The House has as yet
taken no action on the delicate subject of taxa
tion, although a stormy debate was had yester
day on the bill to provide means to rebuild the
bridges in this district, destroyed by tbe late
flood, but without coming to a vote.
Meantime, the Upper House gets along in its
usual slow, unimpassioned manner, quite natural
for a body of men who serve without pay, their
only remuneration being the honor of the posi
tion. They however passed the bill authorizing
the sale of the Go verm en t Press, which is cer
tainly a step in advance, and have apparently
gone to work with a good degree of energy on
those portions of the new Code which have been
transmitted to them by the Representatives. The
New Hospital Act, passed by the Lower Honss,
has been virtual' J defeated by the Nobleslthough
its passage is ostensibly only deferred until soma
plan of providing means is suggested, it being
argued that the present and prospective finances'
of the government are not more than adequate
for current expenses, and that government credit
is not, just now, sufficiently good to ensure the
raising of; the money on exchequer bills, a posi
, tion which we are sorry to see the Minister of,
Finance assume, although it may be strictly true.
The Hula Act, passed by the Lower House, which
suppressed hulas and classed them as a public
nuisance, has also been defeatjd and thrown out
by the Nobles, and a proposition made to intro-'
duoe a r.ew bill relating to hulas, which, if we
are correctly informed, will legalize them, but
f lace certain restrictions on them. - The public
will await with some interest the action of the
Nobles on this question.
In this connection, it may not be amiss to call '
the attention of the Legislature to the fact that
no provision exists for regulating the number of
members of the Lower House, after the adjourn
ment of the present one. The law of 1853, which
fixes the number at present, limits its operation
from 1854 to 1859 inclusive. A joint resolution
could easily extend the present law till repealed, or
otherwise superceded by future legislation.
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Scddkx Deaths. We frequently of late hear the
remark 44 How very suddenly people die here in
Honolulu" and tbe suggestion is thrown but that
residents of this place are more often affected with
heart disease than elsewhere. How this may be, can
best be explained by the doctors. One thing is cer
tain, that three sudden, unwarned departures from
life within forty-eight hours, as was the case last
week, is rather remarkable in a small community
like this. We are also reminded of the often repeat
ed assertion that some of the liquor shops deal in lit
tle else than rank poison logwood wines, 44 rot-gut
brandy, whiskey that will kill at a mile, and ale
kept from souring by coculus indicus; and when
ever a person dies suddenly who is known to have
drank at the city bars, there are not a few who at
once come to the conclusion that their decease was,
at least, accelerated by some one of these poisons. An
inquest ought to have been held ou the body of each
of the persons referred to. And this brings us to a
suggestion which we would throw out fur the benefit
of the Legislature and of humanity in general. Let
it be made the duty of the sheriiF periodically, or
whenever he may deem proper, to visit the liquor
shops, and take thence samples of any and all liquors
for sale, whether exposed or not; let the same be an
alyzed by a competent chemist authorized by Uw to
do it ; and whenever the preseuce of poisonous or
deleterious substances is ascertained, the liquor ven
dor to forfeit his license, and be otherwise punished,
in proportion to the magnitude of tbe offense. An
honest -dealer would court the inquiry, a dishonest
one would Tear the risk, and the drinkers would per
hups live longer. If liquor be an evil, it is neverthe
less a licensed ore, and the closer it is brought under
the cognizance of law, the better fur all concerned. A
plan like the foregoing has long been in operation in
the commercial ports of England, and has been found
to work well. W e are informed that there exist places
in Honolulu where debased liquors are manufactured
as systematically sis they are imported. This may
not be so, but, if true, the interests of the Community
demand that it be looked into.
Royal Hawaiian Thateb. Tnlfourd's great play
of Ion was given at the Theater on Saturday nieht
last, on the occasion of Mr. G. H. Incc's Benefit, be
fore a large and appreciative audience. The piece
was well put upou the stage, and went ofi to tbe en
tire satisfaction of the house. Miss Annette Ince, as
Ion, was most perfect in the delineation of the char
acter, nnd from time to time w:is greeted with rap
turous appl.tuse a well merited tribute to her un
wearied endeavors to please. Miss Caroline Inceand
Mrs. Lambert sustained their parts remarkably well,
and added much to the well rendering of the play,
Mr. Tokely, as Jidrastut, and Mr. Beatty, as Ctesi-
phon, played with unfltgging vigor, and were re
warded for their paius by frequent plaudits from all
parts of the house. Miss Ince, we learn, will appear
but once more before a Honolulu audience, as she
will leave per the Yankee in a few days for San
Francisco. It will probably be a long time before an
actress of her merit will again visit these islands,
and no doubt upon the occasion of her farewell bene
fit she will receive a demonstration from the theater
going public that will render forever pleasing the
recollection of her short stjourn in Honolulu.
On Monday evening, Miss Granioe gave one of
her versatile entertainments. The performance went
off to the entire satisfaction of the audience. Miss
Granice, in particular, gave indisputable evidence of
her ability as an actress of rare merits, and her ef
forts to please appear to have been appreciated, as
the theater last night, on the occasion of her benefit
was nearly full. The bill was a capital one, and
Miss G. hau a fine opportunity for displaying her
powers in Comedy, Tragedy nnd Farce," for which
she is so justly celebrated. She was aided by the
California Minbtrels, and several tf the Honolulu
Theatrical corps, all of whom acquitted themselves to
the satisfaction cf the audience. On Saturday night
next, Lew Rtttler, of the California Minstrels takes
a benefit. Mr. Rattler has done his best to cater to
the wants of the public in his profession, and there
are none more worthy thin Lew Rattler to receive a
bumper. One thing is certain, the nigger$ will do
their best on that night to please, and Miss Granice
has volunteered to aid them hi some of her most en
A Share Stobt. Kanaka seamen are noted for
their yarns, which are sometimes rather finiy, and
not one iota behind the best of their more enlightened
brethren. The following was current here a few days
ago. Two native sailors jumped overboard' from the
whaling brig Waiiua, (which sailed from this port on
the 3C.ii Dec ,) when that vessel was about thirty
miles from land, preferring to run their chances of
swimming ashore to a cruise in the Arctic Ocean.
After having been twenty hours or more in the water,
they fell in with one of th? large sharks which abound
off Barber's Pi int. Taking it for granted that the
monster was actuated by no deadly motives, and that
his errand was only a benevolent one, both the na
tives sprang on tbe back of the shark, and guiding
his head with a slap on this side or on that, headed
him direct for land, some ten miles distant. Being
almost famished, they picked off and devoured the
small fish which adhere to the tkin of the shark,
and enjoyed, during their aquatic ride, stish a deli
cious feast of raw fi h as only kanakas know the lux
ury of. Having arrived within soundings, and find
ing the fish reluctant to go farther,' they leaped from
his back, and swam safely ashore, landing at Puu
loa. We give tbe story m we heard it, only add
ing that the sailors, who deserted from tbe Waiiua,
were arrested, and are now in custody, and declare
that they are willing to testify to its truth. The dis
tance swam is probably correct, but the shark part of
the story is rather too tough for this latitude.
Hawaiian Oratory. The House of Representa
tives is the scene occasionally of some quaint and orig
inal illustrations of Hawaiian oratory. .A native
member got up a few days ago, and with a'l tbe im
portance of a Webster, .said: 44 Mr. Speaker, I have
something in my opu, (belly,) which I wish to let
out." - To understand his figure of speech, it should
be stated that according to Hawaiian notions, the
belly is the seat of the mind. - Another native mem
ber, however, who followed him on tbe other side of
the debate opened bis remarks by saying that 44 fn his
opinion it was nothing but Molokai poi that troubled
the honorable gentleman.' .
California Farjceb. This publication, issued in
San Francisco, is one of the most valuable weeklies
we receive. We seldom open a number of it without
finding some articles of real practical value. It Is
devoted especially to tho farming interest, and ought
to be taken by every one engaged in agriculture at
A Wild Goose Chase. News is scarce in these
dull times, but the best joke of the season occurred
on the beach yesterday morning, and we must be par
doned if we make the most of it. 'There she blows!"
was heard from two or three lookouts. "There
she blows, right off the twll buoy,'!-passed along
from mouth to mouth. Without stopping to sec what
it was, there was a general stampede for whale-boats,
and we noticed friend Spencer, who is always ahead
in work or fani got his boat ready first, manned by
a gallant and picked crew, with an old and experi
enced whaleman from tbe Splendti as boat-steerer,
and shoved off with lance in hand. Determined not
to be outdone, some of the ships in port lowered
away, and in a trice two boats from the Xim.roI, one
from a French vessel, one from the Montezuma, and
some others -seven or eight in all were seen scud
ding out the channel for the bell buoy. Every little
while a splash of the water was observed, followed by
44 There she blows again !" 4 44 Pull boys, pull, there
she blows !" Meantime we could hear sundry
whispers as to the quantity of sperm oil in market
and the price. W even engaged to take a few gal
lons from the lucky boats for the purpose of greasing
the wheels of our power press. Away the boats pull
ed for a good two miles, till on coming up to the
buoy, the discovery, was suddenly made that the
spouting was caused by shots discharged in a target
practice from H. B. M. Ship Calypso. Suddenly
all the boats were seen pulling about and heading for
shore amid roars of laughter from tbe man-of-wars
men and observers on the lookouts. .The disap
pointed 44 spouters" landed with the best grace possi
ble, puffing and sweating; like Crimean heroes, and
sheathed their bright lances, while our poor press
will have to squeak on till the next 44 sparm" whale
visits our harbor.

A Forbshaoowisio. or a list of letters "not previously ad
vertiwfi" and lyinjs ia the Port Office, see an advertisement in
the Advertiser sinned hj the Post Master General. Already
one does not know which paper to look upon as the organ of Uie
officers of tbe Government Polynesian.
The above may serve to show how low a "snapper
up" can stoop to pick up his 44 unconsidered trifles."
If the writer of it had had half the brains of an ape,
he must hftTe known that the Polynesian has not
published the letter list since January, 1858, a year
ago, and that the Commercial has been employed as
the medium of publicity since that date. The reason
of the change, we suppose, is the very sensible one
that it was desirable that the list should be seen be
yond the purlieus of the government offices, and the
public interests sanction its continuance. The item,
however, most beautifully illustrates the fact that
some of the snapper-up" tribe can attempt at least
to make a noise as 44 sharp as a peel from Puuch
Bowl battery" vide last Polynesian.
The 44 Yankee. " This oldest, fistest and best of
our Sin Francisco packets, after receiving a thorough
coat of punt within and without, now lies at Rubin
son's wharf ready to take in cargo. No steamship
ever went to sea with better accommodut ions for the
comfort of passengers. In addition to former ar
rangements, we notice that a stewardess lias been
engaged, which must add much to the comfort of
travelers, particularly tha of the 1 id:es. In fict no
passenger packet should be without a stewardess.
There is one thing that reminds every visitor to the
Yankee of home, and that is the picture of old Gen.
Jackson, which hangs against the mizen mast, and
who seems to be the tutel.-iry saint of the vessel.
With such a craft as the Yankee, such a Captain as
James Smith. and such a Purser as E. C. Pope, a man
who is still diss-itisfied hud better stay nt home. The
Yankee will sail in all next week.
i Hosolcld Ltcecm. The annual meeting and
cno,ce 01 omcers OI nls institution took piace last
Friday evening, and the following gentlemen were
chosen for the ensuing year: E. A. Heydon, Presi
dent; W. Fetters, Vice President; S. C. Armstrong,
Stcretarj; F. Bindt, Treasurer; J. E. Chamberlain,
: Editor of The Anonymous. The installation of offi
cers takes place to-morrow evening, at the Hook &
Ladder Company's room, and the public are invited
to attend when some good speeches may be expected,
winding up with a debate on the times of Queen
Elizabeth. We hear that a number of the literati of
Honolulu have promised to lecture before the society
this winter. Its affairs are in a flourishing condi
tion, and we trust that more of our young men will
avail themselves of the advantages afforded for men
tal and social improvement. -
A Hula Stopped. On Saturday last Sheriff Brown
made a sudden descent on a dancing and singing
party, who for several days bad been carrying on
their orgies in a yard in the rear of the public house
known as 44 Liberty Hall." The hula girls were ar
rested, and on Mouday brought before Judge Gris
wold, who fined the woman that owned the house
$25 and costs, amounting in all to 31, as being
guilty cf causing a common nuisance. We see by
the Polynesian that the Nobles have postponed the
consideration for the present, of the bill for the sup
pression of the hula. How is this ? Is there still a
feeling of favor cherished in 44 high places" towards
the demoralizing hula, with its attendant train of
A Nsw Cemetery Needed. By a notice in another
column, it will be seen that a meeting is called to
take some action on the subject of providing a new
cemetery. The old ground in Nuuanu Valley is
nearly filled and there is not a lot in it for sale, unless
held by private parties. There is no doubt that im
mediate steps ought to be taken to provide a new and
larger cemetery. Kapalama and Waikiki have both
been suggested as affording suitable grounds. We
understand that the Masous have an elegant iron
fence now on the way out for fencing in a burial lot,
but until a new ground is laid out it will not be of
service, the subject is an lmrxtrUnt one and we
hope to sec some definite action taken now on it.
Amenable to tub Law. On Monday last, the
schooner .Wunuokawai, for Hilo, sailed from. this
port without taking the mails. She s ailed before four

and two C. S. mails with a large amount of island

Jnitice Tadrr Hawaiian Uws,
. MrT Editob : I am toldtbat there is a law here
that the master f a ship is net responsible fcr debts
contracted by his crew whilst in port; and that where
a sailoT has not been discharged over sixty days the
master is not liable for any debts of h' -contracting,
r Mneciallv ruut bills.- ':. ' "
A A case has recently occurred which contradicts the
f .nv anch law. if it exists. A man by .the
name of "James Kempton was discharged from the
bark' Warren, Capt. Wilcox, in 1S57, and was on
-shore about twenty days. He then shipped in the
Northern Light, Capt. Chapel; went a voyage North,
and returned to Honolulu ia ne 1n of 1608- He
was discharged from the JVorihern Light about the
14th iiov., and again shipped in the bark Warren
the 23d. The Warren sailed from. Honolulu on the
25th November. ' On tbe morning of the bark's sail
ing, Kempton was arrested for a debt contracted for
rum the previous season, and the agent of tbe War.
ten,' rather than have the ship dained, became
responsible for the debt, should it b decided in a
legal manner against the man, but not otherwise
The case was brought before Judge Griswold by Mr.
Montgomery. The agent, being uninformed in
regard to the suit, stated to the Court that he wished
for time to show that they had no legal claims on him,
and it was granted. On the following day Mr. Mont
gomery urged the. suit before Judge Griswold, who
gave judgment against Kempton, without allowing
the agent to show that the man had not been on the
island at any time sixty days within the last three
years, and an officer was sent to collect the money,
and did so. . . -
This may be what is called justice in Honolulu by
Mr. Griswold and Lawyer Montgomery and some
others, but it would not be considered so in any civi
lized country or in any gentlemanly community. If
such proceedings be allowed by higher authorities, if
any exist, it will tend greatly to drive ships from
Honolulu, and will make any amount of trouble.
