It may be some excuse for Mr. Hopkins, that he

hoMj an oflica under its government, nevertheless; is
in correspondence with some of the King's ministers
and had a brother by his side, who had spent several
years in the Hawaiian Kingdom, to whom he might
have referred for information.
From the author's statements and allusions through
the volume, concerning the American missionaries,
the reader would infer that the whole body assumed
the reins of government at a very early period. We
must beg Mr. Hopkins pardon, the case was quite the
contrary, and if he will allow as, we will go back
and take a biief review of those primitive times.
The g'pcl was not whirled into the kingdom upen
a Koyal railroad; there was no gilded state carriage
awaiting the first uiHaionary at the landing, nor ac
complished gentlemanly Sovereign to welcome them
in their own tongue; they bad permission merely to

Years passed of endurance and privation, such as
are experienced among untaught, unclad, barbarous
cations, while the haughty Queen Regent, Kaabu
manu condescended to extend her little finger to these
humble and patient followers of Jesus.
Kind attentions to her " High mightiness" during
long and severe illness was the firtt srflenin in
fluence. A while after landing, these pioneers of the
cross were presented at the Hawaiian Court. The
Palace was a straw but, the entrance or opening
three feet hii$h. There stood his heathen Majesty,
Li hoi i ho, tall and haughty as the "Autocrat of all
the Kussias;" hi. gladiator-like form encircled with
narrow slip of green silk, his only covering. Five
Queens, or wives, two of them sisters, of Amazonian
proportions, stood at his right band.
The King was heard to ask his favorite one,
whether she thought it wise to allow these teachers
cf a new religion to remain, as he had learned, one
cf their tenets was, "one wife to one man V
A little hope sprang up when the King sent the
ladies of the mission a piece of broadcloth, and some
shirting with a modest crder for a dress suit and a
dozen ruQed shirts.
The work was done, though it might be called
Tailoring under difficulties," and Royalty was
pleased. Fortunately the King had not yet been to
the Court of St. James. Kapiolani, the Christian
heroine, whose praise is in all the churches, and of
whom, t-ie author makes honorable mention, when
first discovered by a missionary, was sitting on the
rocks, by the sea-bide, oiling and sunning herself in
a state of nudity.
Such was the Hawaiian Court, and such the state
cf civilization in the higher classes, when Christian
ity was introduced by the American churches.
Progress was slow, very slow, the nation was with
out books or a written language; and it was not till
the high chiefs gave their attention to the "palanala"
and united with the church, that the common people

turned in any considerable number to the subject of
The II.iwaii.ins are imitative. Mr. Hopkins is
right in this. Their rulers turned to the pono, and
they followed the example; when their leaders devi
ated from the right way, too many alas ! did the
same. They were fortunate in being kept long enough
in the right direction to form a habit, in some of
them at least.
Independence and stability are not marked traits
in the Hawaiian character. This vaccillation is per
haps what Mr. Hopkins calls the decline cf mission
Another bone which we have to pick with the an- :
thor, is in regard to laic making. The reader would ;
infer that the missionaries generally took up state i
matters, assumed authority and rode or drove rough
shod over the necks of the native rulers.
Allow us to state that only four of the whole band I
have held office, or had any voice, in making the I
government what it is. and these men were, on enter- ,
ing government service, separated entirely from the ;
m iesion, and were as independent of its action as the
merchants in town. Some of them left without the
formal approval of the mission, preferring to take
the responsibility on their own shoulders, and not ;
establish a precedent, of a religious body setting i
aside oue of their number for state service. We roust
bear in mind, that before the infant nation had fairly :
emerged from the tottering weakness cf a degraded j
heathenism, commerce increased, and a rush of for- j
cigners, more greedy of gain than anxious to promote
virtue, rolled in like an avalanche. ;
Luxurious habits ancorg the rulers, formed in part
by the viit of Liholiho and suite to foreign cities and j
courts, had involved them in heavy debts. These
debts on interest kept them at the feet of their credi- i
tors. A visit from a ship of war, wis a signal for a
general disturbance. There was no effective police. !
no station house, no prison, the laws were verbal, aud J
proclaimed by a town crier. : The King and Governor ;
were appealed to, in every petty affair and dispute, j
perfbrmioe; in pen-on , the office of constable and
sheriff. Foreign Representatives, both American and ;
English, showed little deference for the presence of j
loyalty. It was customary to rush unannounced !
and unbidden before the magnates of the land. To
slap the King cn his shoulder with the undigniSed
salutation of Hallo, King.' how do you do. mv
good fellow was an every id iy occurrence. There
was no handsomely furnished reception hall, where
benntifal foreign ladies coukl be presented and feel :
honored by it-
When distinguished strangers arrived, the mission- i
ary ladies made social tea parties, to which the chiefs :
were invited, where they were introduced and treated 1
with the respect and courtesy due their rank. Thirty :
years since the number of Hawaiian aristocracy to '
be gathered on such occasions, was twenty-five and
thirty; sometimes a greater ! number even. Where
are now those noble specimens of men and women ? :
Purely they are not a prey to foreign vices." nor i
the victims of a "harsh legislation," nor sufferers 1
from want or neglect, or injudicious medical treat- '
ment. I refer the raysteriou problem to the Savans :
among us who descant so Ioarnedly and dispose of !
these great questions with such profound facility. i
We do not claim infallibility for the missionaries, '
nor contend that tbey made no mistakes in preach-
ing or practice. They require no such defenders.
They were sent cut to the Sandwich Islands under :
the direction of a religious body, with instructions I
to labor till the islands were filled with churches,
school houses, fruitful fields and pleas int dwellings."
Let our author make a tour of the group and then ;
te'I us of missionary failures."
What is said of persona! disqualifications" of j
soft feline manners" and, rusty alapaca coats," I
we regard as unworthy of notice. An intelligent piety
and a pympathizing heart, are higher qualifications
than personal beauty. We do claim that as a
body they are less dogmatic and sectarian in creed
and practice than anv other church or people witn
whom we are acquainted. As proof of this, Presby
tcrian, Congregationalism. Episcopalians, Uaptists,
Methodists and Unitarians bate met and worshipped
together in harmony for years in the earce churchts
ao J couzrezitions. ibat they were " ambit jous
and thrust themselves or families in high places
unsolicited is false, though the assertion is made,
and repeated with a persistent obstinacy, as if a
falsehood well adhered to is as good as the truth.
That they always and in all circumstances, sympa
thized with the King, chiefs and people, sustaiued
and defended them in their trials and perils, no one
d?nie. They would have been wanting in fidelity
and friendships if they had acted "otherwise. Un
daunted firmness wheu called to act as interpreters
between the brow-beaten native rulers and their op-pre-ors
was often doubtless considered an " annoy
ing interference." So thought Capt. Belcher of the
Sulphur, Lord Edward Russel, Capt. Valiant, 'Du
Petit Thonars and others.
In order to avoid " inflicting our tediousness open
you," as Sir Walter said, we skip a reriod of twenty
years. The Scriptures were translated and printed
in the Hawaiian language various school-books also.
2 he mass of the people, old and young, could read
and write. A few simple laws in the native idiom,
and adapted to the native wants, were "printed and
published. Religion was popular and fashionable.
The people had cast aside their heathen vices, reform
ed in every external practice, and it was difficult- to
keep them back from the church, till a little time was
given to test the ' genuineness of their repentance
and change of heart. This restraint disple-sed
some, and they took a shorter way to get into the
church by joining the Catholics. Civil dissensions
among rival chiefs had ceased. The newly-appointed
American Representative was friendly, a family
boarding-school had been established for the young
chiefs, and the prospect was fair for a little advance
in civilization. Unfortunately for the nation, none
of the sage philanthropists of the present day ap
peared then with their flippant theories to ward off
death and disappointment and prevent clouds from
gathering in the brightest tky. If they had. the
spectacle might have been witnessed of a national
translation to paradise without the pain of dyiug,
and no trace temaining
"Of man's firt diso1edince, and the fruit
lit that forbidden tree, wh-we mortal taste
l:ruuKt Jcith into the world, mi 1 all our woe."
Such was not the case, however. Disease came over
the waters and swept through the islands like a
tempest, prostrating high and low, rich and poor,
decimating the people in spite of all the missionary's
effort to dispense medicine, comforts and advice.
Chiefs and rulers of high promise, the nations props,
were laid low. Troubles arose from without. The
French were clamorous for Catholic supremacy. The
English Consul boasted of a string of grievances lung
enough to reach around the King's Palace." False
and unjust claims to land were cot up and damages
demanded for hypothetical injuries. These claims
and demands weie backed up with those "noisy
wide-mouthed arguments" so powerful over the weak
and defenceless. The sentiment prevailed among the
most friendly that the case was hopeless, the nation
too weak to stem the advancing tide.
Our neighbors the Tahitiaus, succumbed to the
French, although in Christian and civilizing influ
ence they had the start of Hawaiians twenty years.
The young King, deprived of some of his safest
counsellors by death, became disheartened, hid away
from tjie public eye and sought solace in the intoxi
cating cup. What was to be done ? Must the noble
thip be stranded without one more effort, one help
ing hand feeble tho it be, put forth to save it ?
In their emergencies this man Richards, " distin
gui bed," our author says, " for his insignificance,"
and Judl (who the reader is led to infer- is still
more so) enjoying nevertheless the full confidence of
the Rulers and understanding the vernacular, were
appealed to. They sought out the King, in his
haunts of revel aud debauchery, took hold of the
friendly hand he extended to them in his weakness.
They reasoned, they besought, they implored him,
by every argument they could bring from three
worlds to dash away the maddening bowl," to
arouse and assert once more his Kingly dignity and
make one more mighty effort to eave himself from
He promised, he did more, he pledged his Royal
honor to abstain from the intoxicating cup, redeem
lost time and retrieve his sinking ieputat:on. A
council was called, the chiefs assembled at Lahaina
April. 1811. These men, Richards and Jud l, were
present, and took part in their councils by special
request and appoiutment. A Royal Temperance
Society was formed with King Kamehameha III. at
its head, and thus was inaugurated that Abomina
tion," as Mr Hopkins designates it.
How " old things passed away, and all things
became new under the Temperance regime, let
events tell the story.
Richards was sent te foreign courts, was absent
three years, and returned with a joint guarantee of
Hawaiian Independence from France and England.
Meanwhile Dr. JuJd formed one of a Hoard of Finance,
opened a Government office, with regular business
hours, and taught native clerks to keep accounts,
established a Custom House, created nnd husbanded
a revenue, paid off the most pressing debts, separated
Government property from that of the King and
chiefs, corresponded with the native Governors of
Hawaii, Maui and Kauai, and with them devised
ways and means to develope nnd increase uative
resources of wealth. Now this Judd was not a great
talker, and sometimes he gave offense by his short
answers, lie merely said yes, or co, when people
thought their dignity required a long conversation.
One of Richards duties abroad was to secure the
services of a legal adviser. He failed in America.
In England he was introduced by Sir Geo. Simpson
to a relative of his by. the name of Hopkins. Now
this Hopkins had a youuger brother, (those trouble
some superfluities iu England.) he urged Richards to
accept the services tf this young man, nnd send him
out to the islands. To-be sure, he was not a lawyer,
but then he might become one ; nt any rate, the
Hawaiian Government owed something to Sir George
for services rendered, and so it was agreed to pay the
passage money and pack off the young Charles Gor
don Hopkins to the islands, consigned to Ir. Judd.
He arrived in health and safety, with a few law
books in his trunk. He was not exactly the man
wanted for the times, so thought the King ami Ch"iefs.
He was kindly received, however, and provided tor
by Dr. Jud l. He boarded iu his family'the fir?t
year, when he had an office opened for him, and a
room humbly furnished with bed, table, chairs, &c,
from lr. JuJ l's own household. How this young
man grew, waxed great, and turned his heel on his
benefactor, we refer you to the book of the Chroni
cles of Kamehameha III.
Our author, in referring to his brother's appoint
ment as Director of Government Press, says it added
to the efficiency of the executive." If a man's
management in his personal affairs is any test of
his ability for public places of trust, we must be al
lowed to state that the said young gentleman left the
islands somewhat involved, as Mr. Wyllie, Minister
of Foreign Relations, it is said, holds his note on in
terest for the trifling sum of twenty thousand dollars!
Of moral delinquencies we miy not speak.
Our author ignores all the obligations under which
Mr. Richards laid his brother, not only in sending
him to the islands, but in binding the government to
pay bis return passage to Ei gland, whenever he
should choose, expecting of course he would continue
iu its service. He not only ignores all this kindness
on the part of Mr. R., but he sits 1'own and cooly
caricatures him, sketching his portrait from nfmoby,
with the expression of a harmless idiot ! The good
man has been in the grave these many years his
Sons too, which, perhaps, is a happy thing for our
author, and no great compliment to his courage.
