Tiil'RSDA r, OCTOBER 24.
i supfose-J intention tf jersua ding His Majesty's eub
! jects to emigrate to other islands of the I'aeiSc or
; Indian lceans. d he very reverse of this has occu
, pied rny mind. I have supposed that many thous
ands of I'olyntsiatiS and Malaysians might be induced
. to emigrate to thU group ; and this is a matter which
I know could be accomplished, if it was deemed desir
. able. My chief exhortations to the natives have been
with a view to in-pire them with h hope o-f national
life. I tell the most iiitelligent, again and again, to
Combat the despair that the dooming voice of the
most of foreigners would inspire them with. I am
positive that in tiie Mormon organization there is to
: be met with the most of this national hope, the
strongest attachment to the King, and the mo-t
ardent desire for the perpetuation of a native Hawai
ian dynasty. At the reipiest of the Mormons, I fur
hishe l them with the design for a church emblem or
. banner, f.r their festive occasions, and I Kave them
i ihe simple design of eight stars in a circle, for the
gro-ip, and the word ola, life, iu tiie center.
I s-end you a copy of the religion principles that
have 11-11 substantially taught to His Majesty's sub
jects, now called Mormons. Th;s i nly dillers from
the teaching in L'tah. in being deficient in the incul
cation of polygamy. I do not believe that this doc
trine has ever been preached to the natives of these
Hands. It is never taught iu Europe, nor iu any
I other country outside of Utah ; and furthermore,
according to the principles of Mormouism, it never is
; to be taught or permitted to le practised anywhere
outside the precincts of the Ziou of the church, and
' there only by a certain ortkr of the priesthood.
I shall not tresp.ss more on your attention at this
: time ; but I shall be ready to lurnish you with any
! information relative to my movements and observa
tions on these islands. I will venture to say on this
occasion, that no other stranger who ever entered His
jf which, buried as it must have leen
lor tin usands of year--, is a sound and perfect as
i that supplied by the tusk of the living animal. 1 lie
i multitude of these huge remains, together with the
j bones of a great variety of other r.mmals, that are
j fuund along the northern shore of Liberia, and en the
numerous islands of the IVlar Ocean, buried in masses
' of ice, an 1 in the frozen mud banks of the rivers,
' near their mouths, is almost beyond belief. The
traveler here may in lee. I say,

j It is dated
Wailiki", Oct. 18, 18C1.
Mt Dear Sir : I duly received your note of the
J loth instant, and hat-ten to present you with farther
information, as promised.
j The meeting of native Mormons held at this place,
and commencing the Cth of this month, was a regular
semi-annual conference such as has been regul irly
beM on these ts-Iands. at different place, during the
past eleven year. During the conference, just pre
ceding this, held on the Cth April last, atiout 1200 (if
the Mormon faith were assembled together, and Mr.
Havekost, resident cf this place, inf rms me that as
many a.. 30K) Mormons have assembled together at
WailuVu.and inasmuch as this occurrence did not at
tract any special publicattention, I must attribute the
particular attention awakened by this late conference
to my participation in it.
Id 18.V), Mcrmon Kldrrs from L'tah first came to
this kingdom. They were poor young men, who
mostly woiked their passage an sailors to get here.
Some had means at home, like Mr. G. (j. Cannon,
find others well known here ; but they all came
without purse or scrip," to preach the tru gospel
of Jesus Christ, as they Ix-lieved. Notwithstanding
their utter destitution of all external means of influ
ence, they succeeded in baptizing a large portion of
the natives, and of the most intelligent ones, to their
faith. According to their records, they had baptized
up to 1S57 about 7000 adults on these island. The
tbieatenings of war in Utah in 1857 induced every
white Mormon KIder to return home. The native
church was left to its own guidance. The Utah
Elders invariably told the natives that they did not
Cooie to establish themselves here, like the mission
aries, but fdmply to teach them what they felt to
be the truth, and then go their way to teach others,
j Of course the absence of the white teachers, caued
I much neglect and falling otT in the organization ;
and when I inquired concerning the Mormons, dur- -
ing my May at Honolulu, I was invariably told that
, uinintainance of f lis) sovereignty, or a more ardent
hope for the perpetuation and prosperity of His race
, and dyuasty. This I have felt, and this I have
: uttered, and I am seeking no personal advantage
here. My heart is with Oceanican races. I was
born on the ocean, and I have felt a sort of brother-
' hood with islanders, especially with the royal Malay,
and his kindred, who reign and live here. I can
- ntl'ord to be misunderstood, condemned or despised,
for I have a heart and purpose to bide my time. I
care for no creeds, but for humanity, and love to
Work for those that arc despised and have no friends.
My dear daughter, who is determined to share her
father's labors and wanderings, joins me iu warmest
regards for your person ; and 1 am
Yours, very faithfully,

; everything before it, might well be more than sutli
i cient to roll the dead carcasses of the mammoth to
; the North I'ole. The flood of water to the north is
, manifested by the slope of the earth's surface towards
that quarter, and the general direction of all the
rivers which flow into the l'olar tsea, in Asiatic Si
beria and North America.

i of the " good old days of Adam and of Eve."
LatiisT from the Si:at of War. In the telegraphic
advices received by the clipper ship Charger, we find
the following highly important and reliable news :
Washington, Sept. '2- . A company of infantry
has been tendered to the Government from the Hawa
iian Islands, and accepted. It consists! of American
emigrants and native llawaiians. It is expected to
S it.dwich lsl.ii.Jcrs were fortnesly ra ,-. i.'.ei.'s an
assertion which we pronounce t. be utteriy false,
an I unsupported by any re'.i it le pro Is. These
Scotch extracts are arplaudiug'y commented on iu
the gazette. That the government editor should thus
attempt as he has before done) to g;e currency to
such ba.e falsehoods is, to say the least, ungrateful,
taking in view the fact that be is employed ly the
King and chiefs, whi.se gio-1 name is thus wantonly
aspersed. The nearest approach to cinnibalism in
these islands, that we know of. is the attempt, often
repeated by the government editor, to broil or stew the
American Missionaries stationed among us ; but the
fact that such at tempts have as yet proved unsuccessful,
is neither owing to lack of perseverance on his part nor
toauywantof Scotch co-operation; but is generally
attributed to au ignorance i f the cuisine art.
Next we 2nd the I'utynisiaii waterligged, and
stumbling over the water-pipes. He thinks tl.e
superintendent was not mu .h out cf the way, after
all, in "shortening the allowance of water" used
during the night hours." The public have made
no Complaint about shutting off the supply during
the night. The complaint was, that the water was
shut off at mid-day, from 10, A. M.. till 4. V. M.
when most needed to counteract the intolerable heat
and dust. No one knew this better than the l'i !y
r: sia i, w hich printed the notices, lut which avoids
any allusion to it. Vi'c say now, as we intimated be
fore, that this tatnreiinz with the water rights cf
citizens shoull be stopped. At the very time it was
done, the reservoir was reported as overflowing at
night. " Our neighbor's suggestion about brandy
and water is unintelligible to us." This is certainly
the first time the Organ" has ever owued itself
not posted on spirits, or declined the mixture.
The Ijyiuitiu publishes a translation of a
letter which appeared in the I'acijic, in which the
correspondent states that Uev. Mr. Alexander had
written to hnu that that paper ( Hiku u ha Pakipn-a )
' is on the side of pleasure and is for the devil."
Mr. A. is a plain-spoken man, and generally not
afraid to express his opinion on matters of interest to
his people. He was recently in Honolulu, and prob
ably had good opportunity to learn the facts iu the
case. At all events, many agree with him, both
among foreigners and natives. If we are correctly
informed, one ca-tseof dissatisfaction with that paper,
is the appearance of a licentious mcle or song in one
of its numbers. If it be so, it certainly has afforded
grounds for the language used concerning it.
Next we find it stated in the same paper,
that the Uev. Pastor at Koolaupoko had said to his
people that the managers of the I'ukiukn drank
whisky." The Polynesian attempts no de-uial of its
truth, and it is presumed to be a fact ; if so, the
Ilev. Pastor was perfectly light. As the J'ulynesittn
is very solicitous for the reputation of its protege,
and has started the iuquiry, perhaps it can throw a
little more light ou the subject, by answering a query
or two :
1st. Is any one resiMiiisihle for the publication of the I'akipiiia
for twelve immtht . 1

Cocoa nut Oil. The beautifully white cocoanut

made from those Cocoauuts which Urop from the tree,
and do not germinate. The meat dries completely
up, and it is with so great difficulty that the oil is

and not used. They do not require rotting before
their oil is obtained, aud this accounts for its crystal

StMiiLAR Marine Phsnoifs,. The Uev. Mr.
Eicknell, who has j-ist returned from a visit to Wash
ington Isiat: 1. situated about seventy-five miles to
the west-.vat.l of Fanuing's Island, reports as follows :
that there ;s a lake of fresh water in the center of
this island. It is coralline iu formation, and is five
or six miles in diameter. The laud is lew aud cover
ed with cocoanut and pandanus trees. The lake of
course is large. H tasted the water and found it
fresh. We have lately heard of another similar phe
nomenon on the coast of California or Mexico. It
would be interesting to learn full particulars respect
ing these islands. Washington Islaud was originally
uninhabited, but Messrs. English x Co., have pro
cured about seventy natives from Humphrey's Islaud,
one of the Hervey group, and are now manufactur
ing cocoanut oil, under the superintendence of a
brother of Mr. ISiekne'.I. The same firm is now at
work upon Fjitiuiug'ts Island, with about cue hun

and climb to the tops of hih trees. If this is a fact,
it is certainly a case of liih treason.
A Ni:w Way of Taking Off Weh.iits. Iu one
of the leading importing houses, not over S0H) miles
from Honolulu, a sale had been made of some barrels
of crushed sugar to a retailer. The senior of the
firm sent his young clerk with orders to take off
the weights. This, the young gentleman did lnstan
ter, for, taking the eraser, he deliberately and liter
ally took them eff, by obliterating every visible sign
and token of what the packages contained. ,

attached, on Nuuanu Valley Road, nearly opposite
those of Lr. i. P. Judd, belonging to the estate of
the late Henry liobinsou, Esq., were sold at public

was C'apt. Jas. M. Green, of the firm of Messrs. C. A.

not include little children, the whole force of the
church will amount to 4,o00 persons above seven
years of age. Within two months just past, about
'2V0 have been baptized ou Hawaii, TC on Kauai, aod
' 40 were baptized during the holding of the conference
at this place. The roost of these new recruits come
out of the missionary churches, aul eight or nine out
of the I'atholic church.
I will n.enticn a few ficts in relation to the branch
on Lanai. With the 1 So adult member, there are
S2 children, and all, with three exception?, born on
Lanai since the establishment of the church there in
ISoo. These children are the off-pritig of twenty
seven marriages. One native Mormon, called Pelio,
has eight children by the wife now living with him ;
another, Upai, has seven ; another, Keawiamahi, h is
five; and soon, down to a single baby ; and they are all
hearty, healthy children, s-uch as are not seen else
where cn these island. The church has ba?en clubbing
together a little means, and has hojd to buy a lfly
of land ca this island, from the Govorntncnt or from
the chief Haalelea. The latter agreed to sell them
th Palawai district for the moderate snm of SV)0.

wood is for handsome, and at the same time substan

the " I'onimoiloie," we expect to see her claim and
hold the place of the flag ship" of the Honolulu
line of packet.
Steamkr Kilaiea. Let any person go to the
steam boat wharf, on the day of the steamer's de
parture, for either the windward or leeward side of
Hawaii, and see the crowd assembled, and he will
have a good representation of h-ug wharf in San
Francisco in ISoJ, on the departure of the Stockton
and Sacramento boats, l'he crowd is as lively and
talkative, the shoving and pushing equally great.
The same crowded scenes are witnessed on the ar
rival of the steamer at the windward ports as here.
The only thing missed, and comfortably S'?, are the
runners. On Tuesday, the A'ilaue.j sailed for Kona

! ' played out," as a place of lesort fot whalemen, but
I it is rather poor policy to show our hand so plainly j
j as we have done, in the fact cf having no vessel here,
! to take oil and bone ready for shipment. It may
' have been a risk to have chartered a vessel for the ,
' venture, daring the summer, but evr-ry merchant j

Rain at Last. One of thoe fine showers came
along on Monday, and laid the dust in spite of Super
intendent Pron lergast's orders against " watering
the streets." It was much needed ; and many persons
appeared so delighted, that we saw them rushing
about without umbrellas. Purser IJirney, of the
h'tlawa, informs us, that as the steaf.er coasted
along the island of Maui, it had the appearance of j
mining merrily in the parched up districts of M ika

of the .Idi'i rtiser's saying in its last editorial, that i
Mr. Gibson had dined with Mr. Perriu, II. I. M. ;
Commissioner at the Hawaiian Islands that Mr !
Perrin has never received a visit from I'apt. Gibson, !
and has never visited him. The 31st of July last j
Mr. Perrin had the honor to be iutitcl o dinner at
His Excellency the Minister of Foreign .;l.iiii, Mr.
Wyllie, to celebrate the anniversary of the day, and
tu compliment His Kxcellency the Commissioner of
the L'nited States on the public acknowledgement of.
his diplomatic character. At that tune there were j
present, among other honored guests of Mr. Wyilie, J
the Commissioners of the L'nited States and of Great I
Jlritain, the commander of H. 15. M. ship JMniine,
Hon. Chief Justice Allen, Hon. Win. Webster, mem

We copy the above at the request of His Ex. M.

upon his vaccinating tours among the natives in the ;
settlements near this city, he has met with numerous '
casts of a disease, resembling leprosy, and which has j
proved fatal to many. The appearance of the patients J
is reported as shocking, aud the disease appears to be
contagious. It would be well for the pri per authori-
ties, if they have not already, to take a look into the
New U. S. Consul at Hong-lili-. We hear that j
a private letter has been received from San Francis- !
