Pacific Ocea.v, October, 1SG0.
Mb. Editor : Dear Sir : In looking over files cf
the .1 Irer-tiser after leaving Honolulu last spring, I
notieed in the issue of April 2Cth, Your commetits on
the new tariff, raising the duties on foreign goods im
ported into the islands from fire to ten percent., with
your views of its probable effect in driving away a
portion of the whaliug fleet which otherwise might
visit the islands for recruits, &c. Your idea seemed
to Le in favor of holding out greater inducements to
encourage their visits in preference to laying any
greater burden upon them as good policy, and I can
not but think you were correct in that view of the
subject. Whaling at the North, for some seasons
past, has certainly been a loosing business at best for
the greater part of the fleet, as its rapid decrease in
numbers affords ample proof; and that the number
now employed will be etill more reduced, the average
catch of the past season fully indicates. Whether
the Sandwich Islands will still be the rendezvous for
those that are continued in the business, remains to be
proved. The necessity of keeping their disbursements
within the smallest possible compass is forced on the
minds of the masters by the fact that in the majority
of cases they are likely to make a loosing voyage for
their owners. That the increased charges on whale
bhips at the islands are to be still more increased by
the additional duties will have its full weight with
masters in making their arrangements as to what
ports to visit, no one can doubt.
That San Francisco and ports on the coast will soon
attract a portion of them seems more than probable;
but the change will not be made at once, as many cf
the ships now out have entangling alliauces at the
islands, in the shape of provisions stored or wives and
families left there, or letters directed only there,
which will necessarily call them back iu the fall. In
fact, I have seen several ships this season, which, but
for these impediments, would not visit the islands on
their return from the North. The fact that a ship
can get what is necessary in the shape of recruits,
water, etc., in San Francisco for less money than at
Honolulu must tell eventually in favor of the former
place, especially as it is a home port, and shipments
and discharges are on a different basis from what
they are at the islands. I have been informed by a
master who shipped a crew there 1 ist fall that men
were plenty and to be had for less advances than at
the islauds. Water from the water-beat fur less than
at Honolulu, taking it from the shore; and of course
his potatoes and vegetables cost less, and his state
ment was that, were he sole owner of his ship, he
should go to that port as a matter of economy. Now
as no ioconsiderablc portion of the fleet whale in the
bays of Lower California, anJ cruise for sperm on
that coast, and farther south during the "between
seasons," and as Sin Francisco can be reached frcm
the Arctic and Ochotsk as soon, and by those who are
late, sooner than Honolulu, and the bnys on Lower
California in a week from San Francisco, whereas it
often takes from three to four to reach them from
Honolulu, a pretty strong argument is made out for
visiting the former port in preference to the latter
one, vir : Less cost and greater proximity to the
whaling ground, and more especially as ships intend
ing to whale in the bays would need only to stop for
recruits, without giving their crews liberty unless
they saw fiL
It costs more to get in and out from Ilonoluli for
pilotage, government dues, steam tug and a supply
of water, than any port it was evtr my fortune t'
visit Hobart Town, some years back, came the
nearest to if, but they soon discovered that to make
a great reduction and afford other privileges, was
wise policy, and did so. It costs to get in and out of
Honolulu, (I copy from my clearance last spring :)

ship making Honolulu her portrhree seasons. Spring
and Fall, would pay for the above charges not far
from $750 to sS40 quite an item aa whaJing is at
present. No wonder the number increases thaMeave
the islands in the fa!!, intending not to visit them in
the spring, getting their recruits elsewhere; or if they
do touch in the spring, merely to get letter.
In speaking of the increased changes at the islands.
I allude more particularly to the sxaller ports. At
Hilo, which port I visited six times on my last voyage.
the pilotage was then SI') esch way; now it is the
same as at Honolulu. Then, there is another petty
charge. A law having been made obliging meters
to make oath to having deposited all foreign letters
and to pty S2 f,r the privilege t f making the oath.
Indeed, we are Tery kindly told that the law was not
intended tu apply to whalers, but to prevent specu
lators from taking advantage of a rise in the
price cf su.tr, etc , by withholding letters cr some
thing of that kind. But the law had been drafted so
stupid'y, it did appiy to whalers, no matter where
they might come from, be it Arctic, Ochotsk or from
a crui-e on the line. But the cream of the joke is,
after having paid this little extortion once to wind
ward, to have it to pay aain at Koloa, as I, and
doubtless others, have done. A thip that drops anchor
at Koloa 'now, wanting a little wood, ic, must pay
the boarJing master 55, clearance SI, fee for this
letter business S2, and if he lands anything to trade
for chickens, pigs, or potatoes, 5 1 for permit, making
S9 in ail. The buarding master may or may not
come on board, the fee is the same, and the captain
must take all the responsibility of anchoring his
hip, as the boarding master does not know the main-
op sail from the main-royal truck, and don't pre
tend to. Besides all this, he must be taken cU and
back in the ship's boat, as he has none. These petty
charges have all grown up within a short time, as I
anchored, therein the spring of 1859, paying only
clearance SI, landing nothing, of course.
In touching at Kawaihae there is a boarding fee of
S3, and SI for clearance, and SI fur permit if any
thing is lanJed. Ships making Hilo their first port
from the North generally touch at Kawaihae for po
tatoes, also at Honolulu fur letters, aud Koloa for
wood, paying port charges at all tfrese places if any
business is done. In touching at Honolulu for letters
if one of the crew steps out and can't be found, per
haps the master decides to take a native in his place.
One is soon procured, he takes him to the Harbor
Master, pays his advance, pays SI for native ship
ping articles, a fee of 50 cents for shipping, another
fee of 50 cents fur bond. He also pays the govern
ment tax of S-i uud if not posted thinks he is all
right. But some one tells him it is claimed, that he
is not legally shipped unless on the ship's articles.
Off he goes to the Consul's office. lie is asked, have
you cleared at the Custom House ? He answers, no,
have merely stopped for letters and perhaps to get
some article that could not be procured to windward;
have been in the habit of doing so on former voyages.
He is told that now he will be liable to a heavy fire
by so doing. Away he hies to the Custom House,
pays for buoys, 't'I for clearance ana 4-1 for fees;
comes back, his native is shipped. He pays deposit
and delivery of papers, shipping fee, shipping articles
and clearance, aud is ready to leave with bis letters,
if he has been fortunate enough to find some. If of
an excitable temperament and in the bad habit of
using expletives not to be mentioned to ears polite, he
will, during his chase from pillar to post, have used
up his whole stock, and going oil to his ship can
c;ilmly moralize on the magnanimity of the Sandwich
Island government in remitting the duties on any
goods he may land to the amount of S200, (a bonus
of $20,) and wonder they had not raised the duties
and fees in years past, when the company of so many
whalers was inflicted upon them, and whaling was a
paying business. Should his sympathy be excited for
them lest they come to poverty, one reflection may
console him, many of the ships going homeward will
not be fitted again, many that are will be fitted for
the Indian Ocean, as it costs less to sail a ship in
that direction, aud of the few that are fitted for the
North Pacific, some witl not visit the islands as fre
quently as has been the custom.
This train of reflection may last until he reaches
Kolon, a bad place to lay off aud on at, stands in and
drops his anchor aud commences getting off wood, a
few cords of which he needs, innocently supposing, if
he has not been there for a year, that he has but S'l
to pay for a clearance. The boarding ofliccr comes
down, finds he only wants wood, and does not intend
to land anything, tells him there is S3 to pay. About
this time the aforementioned expletives come into full
play again , as that official can most solemnly testify.
Perhaps, however, as was the case last fall when I
was there, the master comes on shore and fiuds the
fees iucreased if he anchors, gets into his boat and
goes olf, and what he might have bought is lost to the
agricultural interest of the islands, and some other
port benefited where the rage for fees is more in accor
dance with the times. Koloa is the only accessible
port now open to whalers on Kauai, the other being
on the wiudward side and seldom or never visited.
Formerly they were permitted to trale at Waimea or
any place they saw fit, but recently these privileges
have been annulled through fear, as I was told at
Koloa. that liquor miglit be smuggled on shore.
That may or may not be the reason. I wonder it had
never been thought of in years p:ist. The fact that
Some ships contemplated getting their recruits wholly
at that island might possibly have something to do
While at Koloa last fill a ship hove too off Hana
pepe, eight miles to leeward of Koloa, and sent iu a
boat. The Collector mounted his horse and set off,
fearing he might be permitted to trade, although I
assured him that I might bear watching ns well as
the stranger. His reply was, that his orders were
imperative to drive off any one attempting to trade
at other than the ports of entry, aud report them that
they might be fined, and it was intended to make an
example of the first one as a warning to others.
Were ships permitted to anchor at Waimea, a very
few might get their wood and water at Koloa, and
then anchor at the former place, as some intended
doing last year, but were prevented.

ful, other schooners will be fitted with propellers to
run around Maui and Kauai. Until such vessels
can be got ready, a smart schooner will be chartered
by the Compauy to run between Kawaihae and
Hilo, ou the trips that the steamer goes only as far
as Kawaihae, and goods will be forwarded on to
Laupahoehoe, Kapukaea and Hilo, by her without

goes to Hilo, the schooner will go on from Kawaihae
to Kona, goods and passengers per steamer being
taken without extra charge.

It affjrds us unfeigned pleasure to report a move
ment on the part of our citizens, to honor a man
whose life has been spent in successfully navigating
the waters of the Pacific. On Friday evening, Oct.
12th, a meeting was held, to make the necessary ar
rangements for presenting Capt. Paty some testimo
nial, suitable and appropriate. At this meeting
the following resolutions were offered by Mr. N. L.
Resolved, That, in consideration of the long and meritorious
j services of Capt Jons 1'atv, as a ship master out of Honolulu,
j and the valuable assistance rendered hy him in the furtherance
j of commercial intercourse between the Hawaiian Islands and
I adjacent iiorts in foreign countries, as evidenced by the accom
plishment of Ins one hundretn pontage across the I'acitic, we,
Americtin residents and others, in Honolulu, in meeting assem
bled, deem him entitled to be hailed as the Commodore of the
Merchant Marine, at 'he S-audwicli Islands, and as such to fly
j some ensign, emblematical of the rank thus bestowed upon him;
and therefore it is further
I Resolved, That, in accordance with the above resolution,
j a pennant, indicating such rank, be purchased from the
funds now in the hands of the Committee a; pointed to obtain
j subscriptions for procuring testimonials of onr appreciation,
I and that the same be presented to Capt. John I'utv, on his
' arrival from San Francisco, ami that on its presentation, he
! shall be saluted with the customary salute of lo guns.
These were unanimously adopted. The following
gentlemen were then appointed to carry out the
spirit of these resolutions : viz., Capt. T. Spencer
. Capt. B. r. Snow, capt. James, and J. A. Hassin
; ger. The committee could not have decided upon a
; more appropriate testimonial to the ship master who
j has navigated a vessel one hundred times between the
! Sandwich Islands and the American coast. Captain
: Paty is a native of good old Plymouth, Mass., and
i for aught we kuow, the blood of the master c-f the
J Jllay Flower runs in his veins. Capt. Paty is one
j of those Cape Cod boys, of whom it has been elo
i quently said, They leap from the crd!e to the
shrouds without holding on to their mother's apron
Since the foregoing was published in the Friend
at an adjourned meeting of the friends of Capt. Paty,
held yesterday at the rooms of C. N. Spencer, Esq.,
it was resolved with the remainder of the funds in the
bands of the Committee, to send to San Francisco and
purchase a Silver Tea Service. A. P. Everett, A.
Fornander and John F. Pope, Esqrs., were appointed
a Committee for that purpose. Captains T. Spencer,
1. F. Snow and S. James, and Mr. J. A. Hassinger,
were appointed on the Committee of Reception.

Anchoring outsiJe, it is fiir to say, is not common;
but the fict in this case was, the pilot came on board,
anl haJ the colors set for the tug, but after waiting
until sunset, proposed to anchor, to which I acce led,
supposing it his business to take the ship in, ns cus
tomary the wor' J over. In settling, however, at the
Custom House, I was enlightened in regard to that
matter, by having to pay S10, the fVe fur anchoring
a ship outside, in addition to the usual pilotage.
H id I been aware of any such custom I should have
considered myself fully competent to have performed
that feat, having anchored my ship outside several
times in years past without a pilot, or I might have
laid off and on. True it would not have been so
handy for the tug as it was to find her in the very
j iws of the passage next morning. The water bill
would have baen some S17 or S18 more, had I taken
400 barrels the amount required for a season, but
capable of j'l Igiug. but think you nre right. Per
haps, this is the plan acted on, the greatest number
I being at Honolulu, therefore, the Kauaians should
send up tbeif stock to Houolulu, the freight will not
eat it all up in every case, there may be a small sur
plus left to invest in goods to pay a freight back,
thereby proving the greatest good to somebody, not
Ihe Kauaians, however. As for those foreign devils,
as the Chinese would call them, the whalers, who
impoverish the islands, increase their fees, and let
their privileges be abridged, you will soon succeed in
driving them away. Respectfully yours,

for which the medal was awarded. It was found by
a native on one of the Society Islands, about the time
that group came into possession of the French, and
attached to its back was a small leather, on which
whs written "J. Lockyer, 57th Regiment, 1S33."
It must be a valuable relic to its former possessor, if
living, who was probably an officer in the Penin.-ular

30 to S40.

We learn that advices have been received of the
appointment and acceptance by Mr. Blake, of the
Consulship tendered to him. In this connection, we
cannot but notice the language used in the last Poly
nesian, in designating him as " one Gorham Blake,"
intended and understood by the public to stigmatize
him as an interloper. The expression is generally so
used and understood. Had the language been made
by a private journal, it might have appeared less
offensive than when emanating from the ministerial
organ of the Hawaiian Government, in which it
means all that it says, and affords another palpable
instance of the injudiciousness of a government at
tempting to edit a newspaper.
