I Although the resolution id evidently thrown J
out its a feeler, it inu.'-t give rise to the dicu:s?ion
of the general mhject of protection and free trade
in all its bearings aj well as the applicability of
either pyetem to the Unancial folicy ui this gov
ernment. While it does not indicate a coininit-
j tal of the Iini?try to a protective policy, it b--
trays a want of confidence in the operation of the
new tariff, which has now gone into force. This
tariff is admitted on all hands, we believe, to be
! a measure calculated to work injuriously against
the commercial interests of the kingdom, even
should it result in ultimately (two to five years

There never was a prt more favorably located
for a larjjti transit commerce than this jiort of
j Honolulu. It has heretofore attracted hut little
1 of that trade which is constantly crusting this
j ocean heekin; a market, because the jKiliey of our
j government, during the last fourteen years, has
steadily been to derive an income from every ship
and every ton of merchandise arri ing at the port.
j This jiolicy has been looked on as a matter of
1 nrcr-ssitu, and as such it is still pursued, and the
j same principle carried out. Jlence transit com
I merce shuns the port, except so far as is ah.solute
j ly necessary for repairs and supplies, liut it will
j be said that duties on importations can in nowise
j affect transit commerce, provided all transit duties
fare removed. Heavy duties, however, have the
j effect to reduce the commerce of a nation, even:
j though port and transit regulations may be light.
, Such is found to be the case wherever high duties
: exist. A pirt to be J'rev, must be free in every
' sens- of the word.
j Victoria is a notable example of the advantage
j which a free prt has over a high tariff pjrt.

much attention fn.ru the beiuty of the deitn, anj
the rare finish cf the workmanship. And hereby
hangs rt tale :
In the year 134'., Dr. Ilawkes, one of our popular
Stage proprietors, sent three men to California, to
dig poM, with the understanding that he was to re
ceive a certain share of all the proceeds that they
niight gather in three years time. One of the three
tneu was J. II. C of Lickinz county, a journey
man shoemaker, not worth a dollar in thewurlJ, aud
Lis prospects none of the best.
The Ioctor furnished him with a ticket for a pas
sage to San Francisco, and g ive him sufficient fun. Is
to start him with at the mines. Three long years
rolled around, ami not a word did the Ioc"r hear
of his protege. A few months afterward, the Doctor
received a letter from him, d.a'ed from the Smiiwich
Isltuds, statin;; that he had lost his health at San
Francisco, and had been compelled to go to the Is
lands in hopes cf recruiting his exhausted strength.
He apologised to tlie Doctor for not writing sooner,
and gave as a reason, that during the three years he
had been in California he was unable to realize any
thing for his lab r.
Soon after arriving at Honolulu, he succeeded in
getting into the police service, and fir his efficiency
ns an officer he was promoted to the office of Sheriff,
a lucrative and influential position in the Islands.
Good luck confined to attend him ; he became
wealthy, married the daughter of a chief, and he is
at this time a distinguished perso; age of one of the
principal Islands of the Pacific.
The money borrowed .f the Doctor has been return
ed with generous interest, and C. is a mau of mark.

find few names to shine with brighter luster than

Examination- of Native Schools. The annual
examination of the native schools of the district of
Honolulu, took place 0:1 Thursday of last week at
Smith's Church. Generally the exercises passed off
with credit to the various schools, though there were
Some exceptions. On Friday the annual exhibition
was held at the Stone Church, on which occasion
the cliSce was ctowded to excess. The exercises
consisted of speaking, dialogues, singing, &c. The
latter was performed by each school separately, and
it was amusing to notice the striking difference be
tween the various schools. Thedialogues were whol
ly original and got up with a good deal of tact,
various costumes being employed, as well as drums,
music, and even a can tat with all its parapharnalia
appeared on the stage. The incessant noise in aud
out of the building, rendered the exercises less inter
esting than they woul J otherwise have been.
Mr. Editor : The importation of seeds, plants,
&c, is, under circumstances, made duty free, but it
is a great mistake to suppose that seeds are imported
free of expense. Why cannot a law be pissed to
direct the recipient of seels or plants to show his
invoice at the custom-house, have it vised as correct,
and direct the bearer to present such invoice to the
custom-house officer, who may have power to inspect
the parcel. The payment of 2 50 is a needless bur
den on those who, desirous to promote our ngricul
tural resources, are often compelled to send for small
samples of seeds. Every grain of a useful seed which
enters our islands contains the germ of an addition
to our prosperity. It would be but a wise and liberal
act of our Legislature to free seeds and plants from
all expenses, not only those destined for individual
use, but also those that are offered for sale, because
both are for the sole benefit of our island agriculture.
A great hindrance among the native population, to
extended agricultural pursuit is, the want and gen
eral use of agricultural implements. As long as the
simple Oo takes the place of the hoe, plow, rake and
harrow, progress cannot be expected. It should be
tlie aim of wise legislation to render agricultural im-
plements as cheap as possible, and I would suggest
j the striking out of the words for their own use" in
j section 51i of the Code. Let the hoe, rake, plow.
harrow and plow-harness be altogether free of duty.
To enlarge and augment agricultural progress on
j tillery is mooted, they strike out at once into declaim- j
! ing against the " promiscuous sale of liquor," as f
! a distillery and a grog shop were one and the same ;
i thing. Would not the natives, they say, if piles of
' barrtls of okolehao covered our wharve. and onrj
; store-he uses were st.rel with this liquor would '
'not the natives steal? Oh ! wo til I net a boy
steal an apple? Very likely, if they could get a
chance, and till found out and punished ; but if a
native o,-cai..na'ly would steal a bottle, or suck at a
bang-hole, .and cet " tight" on a gill cf pure okolo
: hao, would it not be 1-etter, at all events, than taking ;
; a teapot full or a ca' ibish full of hell-broth home, to :
! poiva the whole family, and murder the baby cn its
mother's breast ?
I Eneourasement of native industry and acquisition
cf agricultural immigration are the two principal
i requirements for progress and prosperity. To create ;
and foster the first it is necessary to point out some ;.
! product which the native has the capacity and desire
j to cultivate : to invite the i ther, it is necessary to be ;
; ab'e to hold out to the immigrant the cultivation of
! certain agricultural products ascertain and remunera
: live. T.. do this is the object of the II. H. Ajricul- ,
' tural Society. Exreriments are seldom remunerative,
I because on account of their uncertainty they cannot ;
I be larcely entered into. The small farmer cannot j
i run the ri-k of time, labor and expenses, lo experi
ment, to introduce, find planting time, mode of cul
tivation, capacity of soil, etc.. is the business of the
' Agricultural Society. It is the center from which
developments of agricultural resources have to pro
i ceed and extend their radii to the the different islands,
i To foster instead of cripple the usefulness t f this in
l stitution is the duty of legislation. In the public
i document, dignified by the .l lrertisrr by the name
of a Ministerial Hud get, which according the Fy-
nrsitTi. is not to be supposed a dignified budget, but
a simple collection or suggesieo e.peiiunuies
receipts," the appropriation for the Agricultural
Society has leeu altogether omitted, although esta
blished by law. It is rather strange to read in the
budsety document the recommendation, that ' the
agricultural and planting interests should receive
every encouragement within the limits of legislative
discretion," and find in compliance with th; wise
sugzestion the small appropriation for the very insti
tution, whose sole object is the furtherance of "agri
cultural and planting interests," stricken out. It is
stranger j-et that " no better means can be devised
for the introduction of habits of Ialor among the
Hawaiian people, than to make that " large class of
men and women" slop-tailors. A man without spec
tacles might see that the Hawaiian race is too straight
backed and free limbed to bend over or under that
goose. The omission of the appropriation is an
insult to the wisdom and the memory of the wise

Society, the late Chief Justice Lee. It is a gra-j
tuitous insult to science, which, without salary,
ransacks the world for the useful products of agri- j
culture ; it is an insult to labor, which content j
with the salary of a ministerial shoe-black, has de
voted energy and life to the great object. Person
ally and individually, the budget may be of lit.lej
consequence to any one, but every man of sober and j
sound sense will damn a budget which stoops to I
filch appropriations from useful institutions, and
strikes at the root of Hawaiian progress in

The amend uictits to tin; constitution appear
thi they have a motive of no common force. Victo
ria is a free port. No duties are charged on nier
1 chandi.-e iinporte-1, and hence the merchants of Vic
toria can profitably compete with, and, indeed, under
' sell, the merchants of the ndjacent localities, iu regard
to all eoods not American. This gives them a deci-

Victoria is resetted to, freight from irin Francisco to
down at Victoria free of duty. Purchasers from the
adjacent districts have few, if any, restrictions on
their transfer to the Amerie ui side, unless in large

ing out of consideration that the Indians, who are

that the trade of Victoria should show a healthful

the former officers were re-elected, and the annual
reports of the Executive Committee, Physician and

Pyhsieian shows tliatl.Gol patients have received
medical aid since the opening of the Hospital, August
1, l'i'j'J. From the Treasurer's Il-'port, we gather

propriations from the national treasury.
Maui. We learn from travelers over the mountain
road between Lahaina and Wailuku, that there is a
very perceptible dilference in the work of the two
road-supervisors of the- two districts. While Mr.
Oudinot is laboring very effectively with the native
laborers (working out their road-tax) in improving
the roads, and has done a good wotk, jmrtirulurly
on the mountain, the Wailuku superintendent has
done little or nothing not even to keep the road in
as good repair as when he received his appointment,
although he has the power of calling out I he natives
of his district to work on the mountain. So import
ant a road should not be neglected.

will be fot:; 1 on oar s tpi lenient t-v-l iv. al-o t'.ie of
ficial rep -rt of proceedings in tiie H jii-c of Uej-re-
these islainls, the augmentation of the population by
I means of introducing industrious and experienced
! agriculturists is, and should be, one of the first ob
! jects. This can only be done, if an uniform price is
j set ou the public lands. These islands are so much
blessed with a salubrious and favorable climate, that
the white man is enabled, without detriment to
health and constitution, to pro-luce all those articles
which in other Countries can only be produced by
the labor of the African race. Under liberal laws, the
' overtaxed farmers of Europe would flock to our shores
j as well as to other free countries, liorn and brought
j up under monarchical regimes, they are invariably
j good, peaceful and industrious citizens in any country,
! arid are cherished as well in the United States a in
: the turbulent provinces of Mexico and South America.
I I'nglishmeti and Germans are the elemtnt whose in
j fusion into the population of these islands will be
j productive of progress aiel prosperity. Invite the
j immigrant, confer powers of etnpresarios on an Kng
j lih and German house of known probity, give five
j years credit to the immigrant, if he requires it, let
1 the price of land be uniform, and be rejoiced that
j you have acquired what is wortii more than a few
dollars, iu hand-paid itidu.-try. perseverance and
j beneficial influences. It is small farmers that we
j want. The small farmer oiks hims'lf, but will
I require help, and that help he must pn cure from the
j native. Let a farmer work with his native labonrs,
treat thetn as they should be treated, accustom them
to order, be just, and there is not a better nor more
cheerful set of laboreis than our natives. They will
readily learn the use of ton's and the plow, and it
would be but a wise measure to grant to such as n ay
combine t'.ieir labor, tracts of land on merely nominal
rent. To encourage the formation of such companies
is the best means by which our missionaries and
chiefs can further agricultural industry. Jty regu
lating their labor to certain hours, prohibiting idling
at working time, one of the greatest wants in native
character is supplied order. To exempt the culti-
I vated laud that is enclose.! Irom taxation is nut a
! stimulant to industry and fencing. Horses actually
used for plowing should also be exempt from taxation.
The uniform taxation of five cents per acre ou un
cultivated or Hnfenced lands would not only avoid
j much complaint about the valuation of the tax-asses-s'ors,
but would encourage agriculture. To the small

I it would affect the large proprietor. It would com.
! pel the great land-owners to exert themselves in be
! half of immigration, compel them to oiler their lands
I at low rates, and teach them, what Yankees know so
well, that a hundred acres given to some ind-istrious
; farmer gratis makes the balance of a thousand acres
; more valuable, and a rent-free lea.-e of from five to
'. ten years is liut a means to bring waste land into
' price. Tiie only alternative left to the country is,
; either " a free nation and a free pei pie derived from
encouraged immigration, or annexation and slavery."
! Let us hope for the first. In the ratio in which our
resources are developed, a protective tariff for such
product- as oats, corn, hay, potatoes, rice, etc.,
should protect the producer of those as well as a duty
of two cents per pound laid on foreign sugars. The
manufacture of wine has proved, wheiever it suc
ceeded, a mine of wealth. Would legislation enact
ltws requiting a license for mining our mountains
for gold, whose existence is at least doubtful? Why
require a license for the manufacture of wine, a? h-ng
as it is doubtful if it can be manufactured at all ?
Ptrange wisdom, or most sure proof tf lunacy and
most strange manner of eTicouru-j. -merit to develope
the rt-s. urces and industry of a country that needs
both so much, and cou. icceive n- t a oetter acqui
sition than a few hundreds or thousands of indus
trious German vintner?. The manufa-.-tui e r.f rum
apj rtains, wherever sugar is raised, to the business
cf the sugar-planter. To make rum from the refuse
of the frugar-hou-e is individual enterprise, and if
the sugar-planter is forbid manufacturing rum, go
vernment acts mean and base to inirx.rt it, and mak
ing profit fr in an article by denying that profit to
the individual enterprise of it subjects. The manu
fictute of okolehao is advocated as prod active of in
dustry, and as expedient to the pr- gres- and pros
perity ef the country. No erain, tlie bountiful cift
of Pr. v iden.-e, is prostituted f..r the manufacture f
