Tib arrival of several vessels daring Uk past werk has Riven
a little sonre animal Um to business. On Sunday, the brig Cam-
ft arrived Arm Pnget Sound withanassortroeotof loinber and

The eumpetitioa now existing in the Ion her trade kaa bad aten-
deur y to pot money into chxobuioa ; at leaat it baa been ob-
arrved that more business is being- door, particularly in the
building line, throughout the group, tban but year at this time.
How mock thia is owing to the low price of lumber inducing the
natives to purchase freely, we cannot cay. Bat Judging from
the quantities being shipped to the other bland by schooners,
aod the Bomber af aew how being erected about Ilonoinfn,
we should say it has a great influence. Jt is well knows that
the satires, or tie stars thrifty among them, hoard their money.
and such opportuaiUes ss are now afforded them of potting op
dwaUings cheaply, they are apt to improve, la this light, the
present enmpetitioa can soly be viewed as public benefit.
The depaxtsrs of the PrUmtr has been delayed owing to the
ou-amial of las Tank; bat it is probable she win get off
about Estarday. 80s will take a large Bat of passengers, though
aot a fall freight.
The steamer does not y commence her trip, the delay being
caused by the cArt on tbs part of her owners to effect some
changes In her charter or prrrOegas. We hope these may be
made soon, so that she may get fciirty at work before the busy
season sets in, daring which she would doubtless be fuand to

THURSDAY, JULY 12.
The Appropriation Bill was reported to the
House of Representatives on Saturday last, by
tbe Finance Committee, on Monday it was taken
up, and the House are now fairly at work voting
the supplies. As might naturally be expected,
when the " loaves and fishes" are being cut and
quartered for distribution, no small interest is
manifested in watching the size of the loaf or fish
apportioned to each expectant, and the various
item, as they come up, give rise to warm and
often exciting discussions, on the part of foreign
members as well as native. On our 'Irst page
we publish the Bill as reported from the Com
mittee, and are somewhat surprised to find it
changed so little for the better from the budget
prepared by the Minister of Finance. A decrease
has been made, it is true, in the total amount
asked for, of about $30,000, but this has been
chiefly at the expense of a large curtailment in
the appropriation for harbor improvements, in
which 45,000 are taken off. The "War Depart
ment fund has been very properly reduced to the
sum expended for the last two years, $45,000.
And the amount asked for a new palace, $20,000,
has been dropped out.
On the other Land the Committee atk for
$25,000 for the new water-works. This appears
to be an extravagant sum to be expended in lay
ing down the pipes, which, with their freight
and other expenses, will cost laid down here,
about the same figures. Still, whatever may be
required for this object should be voted, as it will
be so much added to the productive capital of
the kingdom, and tbe Committee have had good
opportunities to inquire into the probable coet.
The harbor improvements ought not to be cut
short off, as they have been, and the work be
allowed to stand still. The wharves which have
been completed constitute the moft productive
property (or rather are becoming so) that the
government possesses. If, however, it becomes
necessary to append these improvements, while
water-works are being constructed, let it be so
understood, and let the esplanade be filled out to
a line from Mauna Kilika to the south side of
the steamboat wharf, so that that wharf and the
adjoining land may become more serviceable than
it is at present. The Committee have also pro
vided for the district judges, whose salaries were
omitted altogether from the budget as given to
them, and have properly increased tbe sum for
English and boarding schools to $10,000.
We notice by the report of Monday's proceed
ings that the House commenced its work on tbe
budget by cutting down the salaries promiscu
ously, but on Tuesday some of these were restored
to the figures reported by tbe Finance Committee.
There is, no doubt, much needless talk wasted in
disputing on the items of the bill. Let the two
Houses lay down the principle of paying only
what an officer earns, and abolishing useless
offices, without meddling with such as are abso
lutely necessary or deserving of what is voted to
them, and the work would be accomplished much
more liarmoniously. What we need is a discrim
inating scale of salaries, to conform to the service
rendered, and then we shall have no need of
"discriminating duties." One thing must not
be lost sight of that we have a debt of $128,000,
and that this debt is rapidly increasing. There
is no way to check it, but by cutting off unne
cessary expenses, and reducing the total to such
a figure as will allow the government to bo con
ducted economically, and at the same time do
something to stop the increase of debt.
We have got ta look this public debt in the
face. " After us the deluge" was the response
of an Austrian statesman, when chided by one
who foresaw the political storm gathering over
his devoted country. Mere temporary expedients
were his measures. Let not our legislators under
take such a temporary policy. Let them look to
A few historical facts will not be out of place
here, and may erve to open our eye. This
government had no systematic organization prior
to the year 1S40. In fact, there was then no
real government the King was sovereign, but
his chief's were nearly equal to him, and between
tlieui the whole authority was divided. There
were no public works, or public houses, or public
servants, properly speaking. It was in May,
1842, if we remember rightly, that Dr. (J. P
JuM, at the request of the Chiefs, entered their
service for the pur of organizing a govern
ment. At thitiuie there were no duties or im
ports, and all taxes to the chiefs were paid in
kind. At the time the Doctor entered
Kauikeouli's Fervice, the government, if such it
mar be called, owed over one hundred thousand
About January, 1843, (we have not the exact
date,) a duty of three per cent, on all foreign
importations was imposed. This, of course, was
imperfectly collected, but etill it was the germ of
a revenue for the government. It continued till
March, 1843, when the British CominL&ion, then
in authority, raised it to four per cent., which
continued till July 31, 1843, when the Hawaiian
nag was restored, and the duty returned to the
former rate of three per cent., and continued the
same till July, 1845, when it was raised under
the provisions of the Statute Laws to five per
cent. In the spring of 1840, the rrench .treaty
was negotiated, and from that date the duties on
spirituous liquors were raised from five per cent
to $5 per gallon. The revenue law of 1845, im
posing five per cent, on merchandise, continued
till superseded by the Civil Code, June 20, 18G0,
a term of over fifteen years.
Whatever may be the difference of opinion
respecting the policy instituted by Dr. Judd,
there can be but one opinion among all impartial
men, respecting his financial sagacity, and the
prosperity attending his administration. He was
in office eleven years, and left the public treasury
with a surplus of about $70,000, although he
had found the government about $100,000 in
debt, as we have before stated. Notwithstanding
that he left the treasury $170,000 better off than
when he found it, he succeeded in carrying out
a large number ot public improvements, at a
time when facilities for making them were few
and difficult ; among them, the old custom-house,
and the wharves near it, the market-house, the
Polynesian office, the court-house, the improve
ment of Queen street, the Nutianu road and
bridges, the road over the Pali, and several roads
.a . a mm a . j
on ttie otner lsianus. liesiaes tnese, n we
remember rightly, the water-pipes were purchased
under his administration, and in 1844 the
schooner Katnehameha HI. was bought for
CfT K ruin i 1 1 a ,r 1 1 1 n Vi ac&a1 ttto a n ft tri- n vtl a
taken away by the French.
We have thus alluded to Dr. Judd's successful
administration to contrast it with the present
order of things. Since ho was turned out of
office, seven years have elapsed, and though pub
lic improvements have been vigorouFly prosecuted,
the number of salaried officers and general expen
ses of the government have been allowed to in
crease in a far greater ratio, till now we find the
government about $200,000 worse off than it was
when the Doctor retired, in 1853.
The present debt of the government originated,
we believe, in August, 1857, when the first Ex
chequer Bills were issued. On the 1st of April,
18C0, it stood at $128,777, showing an increase
since August, 1857, at the rato of nearly $50,000
per annum. Supposing the increase continues at
the same rate ($50,000 a year) for the next ten
years, that it has for the past three years, (and
we judge from the report of the Minister of
Finance that it is intended to continue borrowing
money,) then it is fair to presume that our public
debt will stand on the first of January, 1870, not
This is no idle theory, but will absolutely result
from the present policy pursued by the govern
ment. How, with the other expenses of the
covernment, is the interest on half a million of
debt to he provided. A large national debt is a
certain forerunner of national poverty, bank
ruptcy and ruin, unless in the case of powerful
commercial or maritime nations. Let our na
tional debt only go on increasing, and the day
will assuredly come when the rarcastic question
of our neighbor, Brother Jonathan, What will
you take for your melon patch?" will have a
marked significance. Ten years is but a short
time, and many who read these lines may live to
witnef the truth of these remarks.
Let our legislators then pause while they have
it in their power to apply tbe cure and check the
growth of that cancer which is showing itself on
the political body.
a Joint Committee from both Houses, consisting
of five from each. Of that Committee, Mr.
Gregg was a member ; and it was before the
Joint Committee that the changes in question
were proposed and entered. The section amend.
ing the transit duties was there ditcus8ed and
passed, with the approval, if not wholly at lh.
suggestion, of the present Minister of Finance.
It stands on the records in tbe handwriting of
Judge Robertson, as we believe he undertook to
write out many of the amendments suggested by
various rnembors. We therefore distinctly charge
the burden of the odious change proposed and
made in the Code, wholly on the Minister of
Finance, and on those " at present in authority,"
for had he and they been so disposed, they could
have defeated the measure at that time.
But what has called forth this attempt of the
Minister to escape from the odium of this enact
ment, and to impugn the memory of that worthy
friend of the Hawaiian race, Chief Justice Lee?
The Minister had nowhere been charged as the
sole cause of the change in the transit duties.
Even had Mr. Lee proposed any such measure,
Mr. Gregg well knew that as a member of the
Joint Committee, created and maintained at
great expense to the country, solely to revise the
Code, he could have had the articles left out,
instead of being put in, as was really done.
Having thus represented the facts in this case,
we feel bound, in justice to the late Mr. Lee, to
call upon the Minister now to state publicly his
authority for assorting that " the Chief Justice
and his associates, and not any one at present in
authority," is responsible for the law, or to
stand before the public convicted of a wanton
slander. If he has any authority for his assertion
let it be produced. To charge the origin of an
odious measure on a living person, when there
is no ground for the charge, is bad enough ;
but to seek to affix a stigma to the memory of
departed worth, in order that pocr selfish living
humanity may be relieved of the odium, or be
profited a little thereby, is an act which no com
munity can slightly overlook. We can overlook
the refined language and choice epithets applied
to us by the Minister in the second paragraph of
his so-called speech as reported for his organ,
and we ask a generous public to do the same, for
we have never attempted to use such language
concerning him ; but when the sanctity of the
tomb is ruthlessly invaded, to blacken the
memory of the dead, we feel bound to speak in
defense of the truth, refute the slander, and ex
pose tho conduct of the Minister.
From Fax sing's Island. Wc have received an
interesting report from Capt. Keyte, which will be
found under the marine news. It appears from this,
that the schooner Wamp, which figured iu the
. m . . 1 1 A 1
papers some months since, was nine eise mau a
piratical craft. The captain landed at Christmas Is
land, and destroyed a structure erected there ly the
United States Guano Co., and took the lumber away
and sold it. Soon after, the mate left the vessel,
fearful of being apprehended for piracy. The Wamp
then managed to kidnap a cargo cf natives from
Humphrey's Island, which were landed at Kauai.

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Corser Stone Latiso. The laying of the corner
stone of the New Hospital, at the foot of Punchbowl
Ilill, announced in the last Polynesian to take place
on Saturday next, will be postponed till next week,
owing to the illness of His Majesty, who was yester
day attacked with the same fever from which Priuce
Lot is suffering. Due notice will be given of the day
on which the ceremony will take place. Tbe follow
ing notice has been issued by the Board of Trustees :
AcrfcnMy to the vote of the Boanl of Trustees of the Queen's
Ilcwiiital, the Executive Committee hare completed the arrantre-
ments for the ceremony of laying the comer stone of the edifice
to be devoted, when completed, to this noble public charity.
The procession will form st the Stone Church, st Kawaiahan,
at 11 A. M , ami proceed thence to the ground where the cere
mony is to take place.
For the take of convenience, the Committee hare prepared a
projrramme of the procesnion and exercises, and hereby invite
the wholr public, whose interest has been so tnnirihly expres
sed by their generous benefactions, to unite with the Board in
uie interesting ceremony.
A Hard Case. Marshal Parke left for Hawaii on
Saturday, to arrest, it is said, Mr. J. n. Morrison
against whom a suit has long been pending, and re
cently decided, by which not only has he been strip
ped of his property, but it is said he is now to be
imprisoned because unable to satisfy the juJgment of
the court. So far as the circumstances have trans
pired, it seems a hard case, and we trust that the
facts will be made public. Mr. M. has heretofore
enjoyed a high reputation for iutegrity and all the
qualities of a good citizen, and if judgment has been
rendered against him by open perjury, and if he is
really innocent, his case deserves pullic sympathy
From Victoria. We are indebted to Messrs.
Janion, Green & Co. for Victoria papers to June 16,
received per Kathleen. We notice that the brig
Mary Ellen (formerly the Kauai) arrived over on
the 14th of June, 18 days from Honolulu. She had
sailed again for Portland, Oregon. About $250,000
worth of gold dust had been shipped away by Wells
Fargo & Co.'s Express, during the ten weeks ending
May 81. In one of the papers tbe rates cf labor are
given, liakers command $49 to 6U per month;
blacksmiths, $4 per day; carpenters, $3 CO to $4;
ship carpenters and caulkers, 85; painters, S4; day
laborers, $2 a S2 50; masons, S4 ; shoemakers, $50
per month, and board; waiters, $30 per month.
Tiik K i lace a. We are asked every day when
the steamer will commence running. The Company
who own her are only waiting a response to an ap
plication mode to the Legislature, amending their
charter, which we hope that body will grant without
delay, so as to enable tbe vessel to commence her
trips early next week.
Ex Mart. Those who are in want of first rate
Irish potatoes, should inquire for those raised by
Allen & Berrill, who appear to know how to raise an
article superior to the best imported. At all events,
the specimens sent us are not to be beat,
Thb Mail. If every one has looked for ,'ihe Yan-
kee't arrival with the eagerness that we have, the
! mail will be welcomed when it does arrive. She
probably waited till the 1st of July; and ought to be
in to-day or to-morrow, with two mails, those of
May 20 and June 5.

Not the least amusing of our table festivities was a
singularly constructed piece of pottery, that had
come many a mile" from far away, and was quite
a curiosity. Not as old as the relics of Pompeii and
Punch-Bowl, it still had its story to tell of days of
departed greatness. This ancient relic, under the
ever-ready hands of the young master of Bose Ranch,
was placed upon the table for a spiritual manifesta
tion, and acquitted itself most wonderfully. Suffice
it to say, there were no sad or glowing communica
tions to interrupt the flow of humor that prevailed ;
no " knockings" but what all understood ; no soup
erluous " rappings," but of such a nature that the
most timid among us could interpret. Strange to
say, these manifestations did not leave till that witch
ing hour midnight when spirits most do walk
abroad. After dinner, we were entertained and
amused bv horse-races, ridden by the men and by
the women, and foot-races ran by the boys and the
girls all of which sports passed off without serious
accident to mar the pleasure. A display of most
brilliant fire-works rockets, Roman cand.es, wheels,
serpents, torbelions, Chinese fire-crackers and tor
pedoes that would have done honor to any city,
closed the more public sports of the day, and truly
astonished the natives" few of whom probably
ever saw such brilliant exhibitions of pyrotechnics.
These ever, fire as they were, and which illuminated
most beautifully the grounds, and the happy group
irathered on the veranda, paled before the light of the
full moon rising in her glory and shedding a flood of
light over a scene that might nave answered weu lor
the locale of The Mid-summer Night's Dream."
Soon the music of the piano called the dancers to
their places, and with quadriile, polka, lancer and
schottische, the hours passed very quickly away.
Patriotism manifested itself in national songs. And
thus the hours of the day after" drew near, when
all ieinine in a bumper, standing, we drank To the
memory of The creat and Rood" ' The Father of
his country," whose pleasant countenance looked
down upon us from the walls, and who looked not on
a pleasanter, happier company that day, than those
who passed their 4th of July, 1SG9, at Rose Ranch.

A Public Slander Refuted.
In the report of the doings of the Nobles for
June 2oth, published in the official organ of the
Hawaiian Government, the following remarks of
the Minister of Finance appear, which, as they
are probably reported for publication by himself,
may be presumed not to be a "garbled report" :
The arrival of the Grecian yestrrdsy, ho said, just as the
new tariff was about to take effect, made it important to settle
at once, the policy of the government In regard to transhipment
and reexportation duties. The provisions of the law to go into
force, he was convinced, ought to be essentially modified. He
had alluded to the subject in bis report to the Legislature, and
was satisfied that the suggestions made by him were founded in
a just record to the commercial interests of the kingdom. He
could see no difficulty in bringing tbe matter forward in the
House of Nobles. It was not a revenue measure. It did not
come within the restrictions of tbe Constitution on that point.
Tbe 79th Article did not have any bearing: on the subject. He
therefore on account of tbe exigencies of the rase, and in accord
ance with the sound rule of meeting emergencies in the public
service as promptly as possible. brouRht f'irwsrd tbe bill in the
boe of prompt action on the part of tbe House.
The present rule of the Code, which, if not superseded, must
go into effect, came from the Commissioners entrusted with the
revision of the laws, from the former Chief Justice and his asso
ciates, not from any one at preseot in authority. The Minister
of Finance was not responsible for it, unless upon the principle,
acted nnon to a certain extent, by a part of the public press, that
be is. without reference to his public acts, a lair subject of false
hood, malisnitr. and detraction, that lying, hatred, and un-
Charitableness find in him a proper mark, that personal male
volence with the black heart, and the perverted understanding
it alwavs bears, may endeavor to fasten upon him its envenom
ed fangs, poisoned by an antipathy derived from disreputable
sources, aad fed by the suggestions of a mean, low, and detes
He was In favor of this measure because it would tend to pro
mote the interests of commerce, to make tbe Hawaiian Islands
a depot for trade in the Pacific, and to open the resources of the
country. He spoke at considerable length, in support of his
news, advocating the interests of the whsling trade and the ne
cessity of encouraging them, at the same time enlarging upon
the perraament Importance in a national sense, or developing
domestic industry, favoring home enterprise, and promoting the
general welfare of the people.
We publish the above entire, not to exhibit
the refined language of our Minister of Finance,
but for the purpose of refuting what is believed
to be a groundless charge, and which the
public can only view as a gross and uncalled for
slander on one whose memory this people cherish
only with respect the " late Chief Justice,"
Wm. L. Les. We undertake, without hesitation.
to deny that he ever favored or sought to incor
porate into the Civil Code snch a restriction on
our commerce, as was emnouieu in tne sections
relating to the transit duties. Ilia views in
regard to making the port of Honolulu as free
as possible to the transit commerce of the world
are well remembered by all who knew him.
Although fully satisfied that the late Chief
Justice" did not propose any such change, we
have taken the trouble to refer back to the ori
ginal draft of the Civil Code, which came before
the Legislature of. 185S, and which embodied
most of the amendments made by him. That
draft of the Civil Code does not contain the sec
lions which are now considered so odious, but
left the duty remaining as it was in tbe old law,
vix : one per cent, ad valorem." We oITer this
to the public as incontrovertible evidence that
Chief Justice Lee did not advocate any such
change, and that it was not in the Code when it
came before the House of Representatives.
The Legislature of 1S5S referred the Code t-
Rather Expensive Okgan Gbismnq." The
Investigating Committee of the House of Representa
tives, have done at least one good service, in discover
ing the cost of editing a second-rate paper in Hono
lulu. The Committee reports that the following
sums were paid for editing the Polynesian during
the past two years :
For Director, C. O. Hopkins, Esq., $4,000 00
Deputy, do. Abraham rornander, Kq.,. ....... . 3,259 50
Marine Reporter, George Williams, Ksu.,. ....... 1,193 75
Commercial Reporter, N. L. Ingols, Esq.,. ....... 004 62
law Reporter, &2 00
Book-keeping, Ac, S72 56
Total, $9,527 43
As part of the above items embrace only one year,
the total expense for two years, would have been over
$10,000 more than double the receipts from the pa
per. erily, that is paying dearly tor the whistle.
No wonder we have to borrow $50,000 a year, and
have a debt of 128,000 to pay interest on.
" Is time or Peace," &c. Our citizens should
always be well prepared for fire, to which we are
daily expesed. The best safe-guard is a supply of
strong buckets, with water near by. A pailful
of water at the commencement of a fire will do more
to extinguish it than twenty engines afler a build
ing becomes enveloped in flames. Those who are
wise, will provide their premises forthwith, and can
find the best of buckets, cheap and well-made, at
Lewis & Norton's, near the Bethel.
ITorse Oil. Report says that the Kauaians are
procuring an excellent oil from tne lat ot norses.
Some horses when n"ei out, will produce a barrel of
oil, but the average is about half a barrel. Horse
oil is reported to be equal to sperm for burning !
Yt ill not some manufacturer inform the public upon
this subject? We have heard of whale oil, sperm
oil. rape seed oil, coal oil, and many other kinds, but
horse oil is something new. Friend.
Supreme Cocet. Last week was wholly taken up
with hearing native cases. On Tuesday the suit of
Markham r. Strauss, for false imprisonment, came
up, and resulted in the defendant's being adjudged
to pay $25 and costs. Yesterday was taken np with
arguments on the famous JVe Case, which appears
to be the great stand-by of our lawyers, when there
is nothing more important to quarrel about. It
promises to hold good for at least one generation to
IIabd Times. We understand that the mud dig
ger has stopped operations, and been laid by for the
present, which has thrown a number of foreigners
out of employ. The cause of this is Understood to be
the proposal made in the House of Representatives to
stop the appropriation for continuing the harbor improvements.
Restoration Dat. His Excellency the Minister of
Foreign Relations will give a Fa acy Ball, at Rose-
bank, his residence in Nuuanu, on tbe Slat of July,
in honor of the restoration of the sovereignty of this
Presentation. On Thursday last, Capt Hunt
and the officers of the U. S. Ship Levant, accompanied
by the U. S. Commissioner, were presented to his
Majesty the King in tbe audience chamber at the
2T" We regret to learn that His Excellency. Prince
Lot, Minister of the Interior, is very ill, which has
prevented his attendance at tbe House of Nobles for
nearly two weeks.
Sr nis Majesty the King, accompanied by his
Ministers, visited the U. S. S. Levant on Saturday
jasf, and was received with the customary honors.
The morning of the fourth of July, 18C0, dawned
on few pleasanter spots than Rose Ranch," the
hospitable mansion and plantation of Capt. James
Makee, on East Maui. There were few merrier
hearted companies gathered to do honor to The
Day we celebrate" than were there assembled around
tbe festive boards on that morning. The reputation
of the floral beauty of Rose Ranch is not excelled by
that of its open-handed hospitality. Beneath its
roof, good cheer, cordial greeting, and liberal bounty
are unstinted, and the frank cordiality extended to
all who pass its threshold makes all, even those who
came as strangers, soon feel at home. The unrivaled
beauty f the garden deserves more than a mere men
tion ; but it would require an artist's brush on can
vas to appropriately portray it. Surely the
desert has been made to bud and blossom like the
rose." Those who remember the place before it came
in possession of its present proprietor, would scarcely
recognize it now. It is aptly named Rose Ranch,
for they bloom on hundreds of bushes, and of every
variety, from the " tiny dwarf" that Fairies might
sport under, to the majestic and gaudy Luxem
bourg" that stands over fifteen feet high the beauty
and pride of the garden ; from the modest, ever-to-
be-admired moss rose" to the bright crimson giant
of battles"; while dahlias of every variety of shade.
delicate fuschias, with our home pinks, and an almost
endless variety of other flowers, gathered from the
four quarters of tbe globe, combine to make it one of
the most beautiful spots on the islands.
Not for its floral beauty only is this spot admired.
but with an eye to a variety ot taste, we find here the
apple-tree, the fig, the grape, the strawberry-guava,
the strawberry, the banana, and the papaia thus
joining the useful with the ornamental. No one
whose eyes have feasted on the scene will think it
strange we linger in such lovely places, which the
hands of the proprietor and his lady, more than any
others, have served to beautify and adorn.
But, interesting as the garden is, the pride of the
proprietor is now very justly turning to his cane
field, of which he may well feel satisfied, as giving
ample promise for a rich harvest. Noticing a certain
air of busy bustle and preparation among the ladies,
a pinning up of skirts and a pinning up of aprons,
while a variety of fragrant smells give intimation of
coming good things, let us mount for a ride over
the fields, and enjoy the splendid prospect from the
hills. It is now only about eighteen months since
the first fields were planted with cane by the present
proprietor ; the former owner had a sugar plantation
here, but it had been Buffered to run out, and now
we see before us about a hundred and seventy-five
acres, in all stages of growth, from the delicate
sprout just shooting op through the brown earth, to
the well filled out standing enne, nearly ripened for
the mill. We notice the different varieties from the
white cane, that does not thrive well, to the dark red
and green, whose very rind tells of rich juice that it
nere is the wealth of Rose Ranch" and may it
never f;iil to yield a rich return to its liberal owner.
May the drought not dry up, nor the cut-worm des
troy these evidences of its material prosperity. But,
long may its cane-held wave. The landscape view
that lies before ns is one of exquisite beauty. Tbe
flower and shrub-embowered cottage nestles at our
feet, while quite a little village has sprung up around
it to accommodate the wants that gather round a
plantation. The land slopes rapidly to tbe sea, dis
tant two or three miles, whose shore is outlined with
a mi'ik-white edging of surf, more beautiful than the
roost delicate lace work. A gentle breeze ripples the
waters that glisten in the morning sun, while far out
at sea we can see the white caps chasing one another
down the channel that separates us from Hawaii.
Yonder are the islands of Kahoolawe and Lanai,
whose barren sides give but little encouragement to
the agriculturist, but which add much to the beauty
of the view. To our right, the cloud-capped peaks of
West Miui, six thousand feet above the sea, fill up
the strong outlines of the landscape, and present a
sight well worth the visit to see. It was among such
scenery that a goodly party were assembled on We-.
I nesday last, July 4th, to celebrate American Inde
pendence. Ana wnue me company was enjoying i
itself here and there, active preparations were mani- j
lest on every side, lhe "bands" of the plantation
were to have a grand feast, and were permitted to
invite their friends. . Judging from the hundreds
assembled, there must have been some very extensive
