Carning of Clipper Ship Polynesia.
We find io the Alia of March 3-Jtbe following par
ticulars of the loss of this vessel. The Polynesia was

vessel was lying in the streaio abreast of Market

Honolulu ani Hotigkoog, whither she ws bound in
bulla. The ship was to have sailed on Saturday,
but some of the crew hiving deserted, (probably
with toe Cariboo fever,) caased her detention. These
dr-erters were taken and put co hoard by the police.
Veierdtj morning, at about ha'f-p&st twelve

the question whether such expedients for distrese-

is at least satisfactory to know, that, in the ('pin

Even though every vessel were solid rock, it
would be possible to remove them, especially

navigation. But the probability is, that Nature.

There are tkrtt things pertaining to this Act

About I jar o'clock, tbe decks tegan to grew warn,

from a man i-f-war, now came alongside and made

now became evident thai nothing tut scuttling would

j With such Tacts as these, the feigned grief
I manifested by certain journalists inimical to the

We learn by this table, that while the number
of female M continnally increasing, the number
of those diseased baa diminished according to the
intent of tbe law. It remains, then, to consider
whether the4 body 'of the law In agreement
wUh its title, . , , r7. - - -
la embodyicg any act, it is usual to make its
aeferal puru to accord with the title placed at its
head t because its title is a declaration of what
follows - Bat tlie title of thia act is, An act to
mitigate tbe evils and diseases arising," Jcc; that
la,, the . diseases which have spread from this evil
from tbe first, beginning from Kauai of Mano
down to the present time. For from the begin
ning these same diseases have attended tbe evil
throughout all Hawaii ; sickness, death and
sterility in great numbers, as declared in the pre
amble of this act.
- Cut this act mitigates" the diseases only,
while it tends to increase the eril itself by multi
plying the number of its victims, and the cause
ol the diease. It is not, therefore, the true
title-1 suelr an act.' ' ; 5 -'
This would he the true title : " An Act to En
tourage Prostitution. It encung the evil I y
r qjirinx the women to be registered, as a protec
tion from unishment, thus putting theto under
the protection of the law free from liability of
arrt-st and punishment, while in the pursuit of
their iutrper gain. This encouragement has
resulted in their increase tbe first year from Zl'J
to 2X3. .
The law also encourages them by holding out
to them the opportunity of cure free from expense,
thus enabling them to return without hindrance
t their j-rrvions course of life, and without tear
of the cons quences which before pumid them.
Thus this law liecunies as a city of refuge.-
fruning-knife to lop off the rotten branches, that
they iiut again grow and bear fruit.
And further, this law is stringent in requiring
theve women to lie enrolled as a protection in
in their oower to save her. Efforts were now made
to ship her chaio, it being daylight, and tow her clear
of tbe shi ping on to the fUt. Tbe pitch was boiling
from Ibe seamo. and tbe deck and top-gallant fore
castle acre found to be too hot for tbe men to stand
j on, atid although the fl -mes were not shooting out,
yet Ibe deck was so charred nnd partially burnt that
great danger exi-ted of its felling through, particu-
larly if any strain was put upon it.
j 1 be steamer now went ahead, and it was intended
i to have unhackled the mooring chain just above the
water's edge, and thus have toaed her off. The
' stemier shot her ahead, but the shackle pin had
j beeu so bent as lo rendsr its removal impossible.
' Ju-t at this time the fltmes shot up almost instantly
i and without warn'og from under the lopgaMant fore
castle, and through the deck, driving about twenty
' roeu over the bow. -me of whom hung by ropes in
: the air, and narrowly eseapvd with their live. As
I soon as thexe men were rescued, it was found that
j the dimes bad leached the hawser by which the
: steamer held the fhip, and shortly after this burnod
. Completely off. A new hawser wus now got out and
made fist to tbe bob.itays; and saws, files, chisels,
and sledges were sent for from shore to oe in cutting
tbe chain by which tbe ship was held. The ship
was now in a light btaze, the mizzen and mainmasts
having fallen. Efforts were now made to cut the
chain by Charle H ire and others, which was finally
accotopludted alter shout one hour' . hard labor,
j Just as this difficult tak was accomplished, the fore
! mast went over tbe side with a terrihle cra.h, aod
narrowly missed swamping several boats that were
close to the ship when it fell.
Tbe ship was now towed up past the city front, one
roaring mas of flame, her masts and dec all gone,
aod was run ashore at South Bench, where what is
left of her now lies. The bay was covered with hun
dreds ol small boats, and the various wharfs aod bills
j were covered with people who crowded down to wit
ness the unusual spectacle of the burning ship.
I The crew, who were suppofwd to have set her on fire,
j weie placed in irons by dpt. Woods, and are now
j in the Station Houe under arrest,
j The Polynesia was consigned to Charles W. Brooks
& Co, and was owned by James Hunnewell. of
Boston, where she was probably insured. Her value
I was about S 50.000. Twelve mail bng of United

by the city fire department, but to render their ser

Tnew facts make it evident that the act encour
cges prostitution, and that the above would be
toe prowrr title to such an act. Il follows, then,
that ' taw which encourages frostilutiitn is the
enemy of good morals, and opposed to the pros
Jeriiy of the country, and being thus, is destruc
tive of goi-d morals and prijrity.
Again;' If, it 1 conducive to good morals and
the ruperity of the country, why are the pru
VMivasof the law confined to Honolulu? Is it
because that class of women ran not be fooiul in

af Lahaina and Ililo. where are harbors for ship?
From' Kauai of Mano, to Hawaii of Keawe, there

then this partial law for one place tnly ? It can
or.Tr be answered, because the thing itflf it art
'"Further, Why are the provisions of this law
for the women only, and rut for the men ? I lave
the men no part in this matter? Are they not
rather at the bottom of this whole luiness ? Is
it not wholly instigated by their diires? Why
then thia one tided legislation? Is it not because
men have the enacting of the law in their hands,
that they make these provisions r- r curing the
diseased women for thitr oten Ifish purposes ?
If not for this, is it not for the safe accommoda
tion of strangers landing here, that they may
spend their money on shore to benefit the trading
Commnniry, and through them repl. nish the pub
lic coffers i Shall we do evil that good may
come, whose condemnation is just?" .
We weltknttf that this law is partial,' and in
viiUuIn of the 1-Ith article of the Constitution.
Wberrforv, it ie opposed -1 g'l morals, the
lufetjandjriwpvritj of the kingdom. Such an
tct should he tepealed in accordance with the Cil
'article of tbe Constitution.
" The third consideration is, the agreement or
disagreement of this law with the declared pur-post-e
of tu enactment, vix : that, being an evil
which cannot tw uppre3seJ, the ubject of this act
ia t mitigate I he evil.
We agree with the Legislature of ISM. It is
indeed a great evil, and a cause of decrease in the
Jtepoiatiin of the kingdom. But a I have
shown, the act encourages prostitution.' It there
fore fails f attaining its object, " to mitigate
theeTtl. , . - , ....
We also agree with tbe Legislature, that the
evil cannot be fully supprexned in these islands.
We lutve neltlier the knowledge, nor the power,
xutr tbe holiness of G sJ to put down such an
evil,' as when in the days of Noah, he swept the
earth with a fl md. or when he overthrew Ssloin
with fire. What great evil has ever leen rooted
oat 'rum tbe earth by mere enactments? Per
haps, not one. But if law cannot eradicate, it
eaa compress and diminish an evil. And lietaiuse
law cannot eradicate an evil, should it encourage
the spread of the same? By the same process,
it may encourage every other evil, that g'Kid may
Came t t'i country. But as this ctnnot be the
way, then it f l!.ws, that the objects of this
enactm -nt have not been fulfilled.
v Let tbe law. t erefore. be rejealed. because it
dfwtgreea with its title, it encourages the evils
which it professes to alleviate and fails to accom
plish its declared purpmes. Let us also labor to
eff-ct wh.it is in our power to diminish this great
eviL which is destroying the nation, by such
means as shall keep it under. .
r First, by enforcing such laws as shall subject
tbe transgressirs to hard labor, a in previous
enactments. In proportion to the detriment re
ceived by the community, let the stringency of
prevention be the aime. The present penalty for
