th.; Northern State?, I-nt in a dlfT. rent way frum
what it fii.-ts at the .Sjiith can- .1 T.y g"li or
ip r inoii-.-y instead of Kwdcr. A Liro portion
of t!n; -nrr-ly of ra fpm which aj- r is ma'ie
in th; Uniti-d States, is iiiiiruI from turoj .-,
tin: i:nHirta.tion8 of raa the cast-u clitics
of tin; ljrof Kurpo amounting; annually t
over two Uiilliuijd of dollars. Owing to the
gn.it rls; in exchang.; tn Kuroj.c, this imj.ort.i
tivn of rags was lat suimucr euddinly checked,
and has nearly cca-o-d. The exchange difficulty
has caused an increase of ahuut fifty jer cent, iu
the cost of raj; and Consequently of jarer.
Iie.-ides this, there is the war tax, duties, ex
cises, A;c. This new 9tate of things virtually
amounts to a Lioclcade of the Northern ports
ugainr-t su.plies. The consequence has been that
the rice of Tinting paper there lias risen, and
most of the newsjapors and magazines have
raised their sulwcription prices, which must
Continue so long as the war lats.
In addition to these causes, there has been a
Combination of the paper manufacturers, which
has aided in advancing the prices. The New
York Times, sjieaking of the high prices, says :
" This natural tendency to high prices was very
greatly iiMed by a coinfjination of the leading paper
makers of the country, who have seized upon the
opportunity to crueti out small dealers and to enrich
themselves at the expense of the putilic. These men
are now actively engaged in perfecting thi-j combi
nation, for the purpose of forcing prices to a still
higher point than they have yet readied. They met
in this cily in September, and organized The Paper
Makers A?sociation of the United i?tate," which is
goxernel Ly a iiutuber of oiticers, vine of whom cou
stitute a quorum fur the transaction of bu.-ines.
Five of these persons being a majority, therefore,
Lave the right to dictate rules for the government
of all the paper makers of the United folates who
shall lcome members of the Aosociatlon; and they
Lope to make their mnchinery strong enough to cru-li
out all who may refuse to join them. They claim
the right to fix (he price of all kinds of paper, to
regulate the time of v-orkin of the various piper
mills, and generally to control the business of
making and selling paper, without regard to the
laws of supply and deni.in-J by w hich business of all
kinds is usually governed. And they have a special
standing committee of seven, whose duty it is to J
"carry into effect all orders, votes and resolves of
the Association and government.
It is easy to see what a powerful engine for the
oppression of the community such an association, in
the Inn Is of unprincipled men, may easily become.
While the price of paper, from the scarcity of raps,
would undoubtedly have largely increased, it could
never have been raised so rapidly and enormously
as it has been within the past two umuihs but for
the iunieliite interference of this combination.
They have, by their action, direct and indirect, more
than doubled tiie price of printing paper.
Another New York paper says :
In all the large cities and town9 the publishers of
newspapers are holding conventions to determine
ujx.n some cour-e of action in reference to the high
and rapidly rising price of white paper. This article
has been suddenly raised to double its price three
months ago, and dealers ritur-e to furnish it at that,
insisting tint it will go up a little further in the
Course of a few week?.
This state of things is brought about by a combi
nation of paper-makers, who have tonned u le.-itie,
secured a monopoly of the raw materi.-il. and are now
ordering the entire manuf icturing business in the
Country. Their rules are said to be arbitrary and
unreasonable, and for a time must prove destructive
of the interests of those from whom they have hitherto
derived their support.
The combination by which this f i mi tie has been
produced is scarcely less reprehensible than that of
the dealers in food who hold f.ist their stores while
the people starve. Men can live without books or
papers, but he who seeks to control the supply of
food for the minds of millions, by cuttir g otf the
necessary materials of business, is an enemy of his
race, his selfishness and avarice having made him
insensible to the laws of human fellowship, and the
higher range of scntiaieuts that Control the actions of
all fair-minded men.
The above represents the state of affairs in
tin; I'nited Stat.-s. TAte see no reason, however,
why the price of paper ottt of the United .Suites
should be materially changed. The excess of
rags in Europe which must arise from the cut
ting off of a market where two millions of dollars
worth, at two cents per jound, have heretofore
bwen sont, must keep down the price of rags
there, and consequently of paper. The manu
facture of paper will also, from the sam-i causes,
bo greatly stimulated there. For these reasons,
we think that the price of paper in Europe will
remain low, and perhaps be even lower than it
We shall feel the effects of the war in America
in our newspaper business, only so far as we are
dependent on her for our supplies. During the
List four or five years, we have received part of
our printing paper from CJennany, and that
which we are now vising, and on which this
pajvr is printed, is (ierman paper, costing us
perhaps 20 ter cent, more than American juk.t
of the same quality. We shall make arrange
ments to import our supplies from Europo
direct, and hope by so doing to get it at about
the same rate as we have done heretofore from
thence. l'y this arrangement, we hope also to
avoid leing compelled to raise the price of our
tilipcription, particularly of tbe native yayir.
J which, at the present priee of stock, barely
pays fr the white paper alone.
Frc.m Maui. By passengers j-er Kilaucu we
learn that the plantations on Maui hive been refresh- j
fl with soiking rains. Quite a severe earthquake j
occurred there on the 2nd inst., (Monday,) which
shock houses and their contents pretty freely.
Iuring the past few days of cold weather. Mount
Hi'ciki'i has robed herself nearly down to her
knees with a mantle of snow, and the inhabitants tf
that favorcl region even talk of 44 coasting" down

by lr. Hidebranl, we have been shown ly Mr.
'Holstein a large white flower resembling the snow
ball flower. It was received from Calcutta, and has
been successfully grown in the garden of the It. II.
Agricultural Society. Judging from the fact that
while in bloom it was constantly crowded with honey
bees, it may prove valuable to persons who have
bees. It is also a handsome aJdition to our increas

Kt.MALE Saxitaey AsoctTios. It is highly
gTitifyicg to learn that an association b.? been
organize 1 in the Episcopal church, ur. Jer the aus
pices cf the (ckkx, to promote an object which the
American Missionaries have alwavs been laboring to
accomplish viz: fo pro.-.iutc hcuhh cUat!it:s
anion; tKe natives, particularly amoi.g f.niiles.
Next to the direct preaching or the rjpe!, the
American Missionaries have always labored inde
fatigably fur this object, and in the furtherance of
it, they have expended thousands of dollars in the
purchase and distribution of med cines, the annuil
appropriations fur this object for many years rang
ing frctu SoOO to SloOO. Desides, they stationed
educated physicians on each island of the group
The wives of all the Missionaries have always la
borel in diffusing u:eful knowledge among; Hawaiian
females, in regard to pers. nal cleanliness and the
proper care to be taken of themselves and their
infant children, distributing among them freely such
njedieines as their necessities called for. This course
was pursued with an earnestness that earned frr
them a perj.etual aloliti from the native race, and
w is continued till certain persons raised the hue and
cry that natives should not be sent to the Mii-uua-rics
for advice and medicines, and stringent laws
were even passed on the subject. The public are
fully aJvised upon this.
We learn that the new association referred to,
has been organized uuder the name of the " Cathe
dral Sanitary Association." We surely wish thiol
the warmest success in so truly praiseworthy an
ibject, as is the effort to improve the sanitary condi
tion of the native race. Still, ve can not see how
it will be possible fr them to carry out their philan
thropic views without coming in contact with the
regulations of the Board of Health cr of the statutes
of the kingdom. We hope, however, that no resttic
tions or threats will be thrown in their way as tbey
have been in the way of others. And we hope that
the druggists and physicians of Honolulu will be
ready gratuitously to second by advice and medic'ries
the benevolent views of the ladies. If they shoal. 1,
we can see that immense good may be acco'nplihed,
and the old sanitary custom again adopted cf the
missionaries laboring among the natives, an I admin
istering to them such advice and medicine!! as they
in their poverty, ignorance and superstition so much
i A Wild Man A singular discovery has lately
been made by the inhabitants of the South end of
this island, being nothing less than that of a tcilil
man, who has been living in the woods on the moun
tains for the past 18 years. Judging rom his
physiognomy he is a Northwest coatt Indian, with
perhaps some Spanish blood in him. His existence
as a wild man has been frequently reported during
the past 18 years by the natives living between
Diamond and Coco Heads, but their reports were
never credited. Having lately been seen by two
natives, they induced him to come down from his
retreat. So far as we can ham he cau not speak
any language, but has been heard to s-ay half intelli
gibly aloha," the native salutaiion. Of his history
where he came from, who he is, or how he has
lived for so many years in the damp, rainy and
often cold atmosphere of the mountairs, uotl ing can
be gathered. When found he was nearly naked,
having on only a maro, but tbe natives are trying to
civilize him, at least so far as outward appearance is
concerned. We may learn some more facts regard
ing him in future.
j A Mi sical Item. From one of our worthy towns
taen, we gather an item which may a fiord a Upic for
discussion at the next meeting of the Amateur Musi
eal Society. For some time past he has been troubled
,ht night with a peculiar singing noise in hisbedrocm,
j which latterly increased so as to disturb his rest.
At hist, determined to finl what produced the nois.
he got up and found a mouse quietly enscoi.ced iu
the corner, singing away as merrily as a nightingale.
The little musician, not at all alarmed, quietly per
mitted its capture, and when cagel went on tinging
as before. It warbles like a bird, and in some of its
vaiiations imitates very closely a ca.iary, and as
there is one of these birds in the same house, it is
not unlikely that it has learned from it how I) sing.
The strange songster has been provided with a cage,
and appears to be improving in his musical efforts,
and can be seen by the carious at the More of 13. F.
Snow, Ksq. Singing mice are not un;omroo-a, and
they are taught by ilie Japanese, even t dance and
perform acrobatic feats, while they hear muois The
U. S. Steamer Powhatlan, which visited this port
two or three years since, had some of these trained
mice on board.
l)oci;m i;ick Time. The little stcr.mcr Annie
Laurie is steadily earning for herself a name as a
fist craft. She left Honolulu for Nawiliwiii on Mon
day lat at 5 1'. M., under the command of Capt.
Marchant; used steam only eix hours eoing down.
Laid at Nawiliwiii nine hours, during which time
she" discharged her cargo, and took on board ICO bags
of sujar, 8 cords of wood, etc., and nine passengers.

i My Dear Mr. Editor : For two years the Adrcr
1 User has come regularly to me, with its chronicle of
i the various changes occurring in your community.
It is a welcome visitor, and I take pleasure in show
ing it to those about me who are curious in regard
to the islands, as conveying the best impression of
their state of advancement. It is a source of great
gratification to the many iu this country, who are
interested iu the Hawaiian Islands, to notice the
warmth and purity of the patriotism of Americans
there. The recent generous donation for the comfort
of the sick and wounded soldiers, is a rebuke to the
lukewarmness of many nearer home. We are glad to
see that you look at this 44 fratricidal war" so intelli
gently; that you see in it a struggle for existence, a
contest for the life of the nation and for the preserva
tion of its blood-bought liberties. Our Southern
brothers have struck heavy, murderous blows against
our common mother, aud we lift up our hands to
How strange that Europe does not understand this
war. Cannot there exist as pure love of country, as
sincere devotion to government, as strong fidelity to
law in a republic as in a monarchy, where these ideas
are represented tmgibly in a King? Lord Brougham
calls the war 4 a mere contest for supremacy." So
it is, in the same sense that the English war against
the Sepoys was. Cailyle may live to regret his
rental k that 44 this," meaning the American war,
44 was the dirtiest chimney that had been on fire for
a l.-ng time, and that we had better let it burn itself
out." The Queen of England would, do doubt, like
to see the Union restored but with a Ministry who
would rei .ice at the destruction of Republican insti-
tutious on this continent, no wonder that Her pro-
... ... . , i
1 1 . i 3 r n (hid nnn f i nont nn x? r n . 1 nr that linn I
i cl imation of neutrality is ignored, and that the coast
swarms with English blockade runners. Scarcely a
! day passes that some rich prize is uot towed into the
Northern ports, and yet a sufficient number must
: escape the vigilance of the blockading fleet to make
this hazardous business profitable. I
j The pos:ticu of England is extremely illogical. !
j She wi-hes cotton, and to obtain it, she allows her j
; citizens to run the blockade and buy it. She does
not or will not see that every act of this kind fur- j
! uishes material aid and comfort to rebellion, extend j
; its power of resistance, prolongs the war, and puts ;
; back the chances of a supply of cotton. This rebel-
; lion would have ceased a year ago from exhaustion, !
had it not been sustained by English cargoes. No
peace can now be accepted, except the terms be sub
mission and obedience; for any compromise would be
an iusuk to history, a wrong against conscience and
a sin against God.
The late successes of the Democratic party at the
polls, are hailed in Europe as the rising of an anti
war party. But in this they are mistaken. No men
with such principbe could be elected. The people
will insist that a vigorous war-policy shall constitute
the first plank in every platform. The recent returns
from Missouri and elsewhere indicate that the next
Congress will be Republican and support the Admin
istration, as firmly as the present.
Pending any decisive news from Bumside's ad
vance, the sailing of Bank's graod expedition to
New Or'eau, and the sweeping of the Mississippi by
the forty thousand Westerners, the principal topic
of conversation and newspaper controversy is the
removal of McClellan. There are two sides to this, as
to every question.
His partisans argue that his high scholarship at
j West Point, his position on the Commission to the
i Crimea, and the military skill displayed in all his
j campaigns, mark him as ti e great military genius
j of the age, a second Napoleon : they say that his
carefully planned 44 Anaconda" system was about
culminating in the annihilation of Rebeldom, when
; he was removed.
Those who sustain this act of the President,
j admit in some degree his ability as a soldier, but
j deny totally that he is possessed of the scope of mind,
. the vastness of comprehension and especially the
activity, energy and daring necessary for such a
position. 44 West Point makes martinets, but God
finkes Generals." The country demands a leader
who will take Richmond and not be couteut with
iiaving sived Washington. His friends again say
that h's greatness of soul is manifested in his not '
replying to any of the as-aults upon him. But what (
t.eccssity for this, when hundreds of new-papers j
make him their idol, when political organizations !
make protestation of confidence in him, their corner- !
; frtone, and even nominate him for the next Presidency. !
. No word of his could ad 1 anything. His very silence i
increases his power. People do not understand him,
and he thus maintains a reputation which a few
speeches might explode.
It is sail that McClellan's removal was unjust,
i because he is loved so sincerely by the army. But
I what proof is popularity cf generalship? Fremont
was removed from his command when at the height
! cf popularity with his men. Confidence in superiors
, ia natural : hero-worship is ins-.incti ve. The rank
and file love a man who is kind to them. There is
j gool testimony to the fact that this General was wont
to spend hi time in camps and hosritalsshakine hands '
with his men, in preference to fighting battles. Mc
Ciell.m entered upon the command just at the time
when a lealer was demanded, and the newspapers
ma le him a hero in spite of himself. He hal his
chi ice (.! recipients', as many men as he wished for,
m.'iny was p. -ured cut like water, and every requisi
tion filled. He employed a winter in organizing an
army because there was mud in Virginia. He sat
down bef. re Mana-sisan I slept, while the enemy built
fortifications, constructed A r imac, conscripted
i armies and kept him at bay with quaker guns. The
rebel Maury testifies that at one time their army at
Manassas had but two percussion caps to each man.
They have built up manufactory since. He would
not allow a sufficient number cf men to be taken
frotn his armv to break the blockade of the Potomac,
which was costing the Republic millions, lest Beau
regard should overpower him. Arrived at lorktown,
which was held by Magruder with only ten thousand
men, this same excessive caution persuaded him to
dei ty attack until his entrenchments were all dug
and the rebel army could be moved from the west to
the defense i f Kichmond. When the city of Rich
mond was reached at last, no wonder there were not
men enough to 44 drive t he enemy to the wall;" the
fever, the digging, the swamps of the Chickahominy,
ha I done their work. The heroes fought gallantly but
the wor-1 rttre.it sent despair to every heart, and they
poured back to the river, only after having lost and
buried their thousands.
But if all the charges against McClellan were un
true, his removal was a necessity in order to preserve
subordination, inasmuch as he hid disobeyed the
commands of his superior. The time has come when
the people cau be trided with no longer. They ;in.'
have success. The President has uo other criterion
by which to judge of generalship, and his late ap-
j pointments show that he has this only in view. He
will continue this until something is done.
lhe pirate Alalama is still afloat, though a small
fleet is upon her heels. The New York Chamber of
Commerce declares her to be an English vessel, with
uo proof of her being a rebel.
The success of the 15-inch guns, which throw
balls weighing 420 lbs., on the new iron-clad 44 Mon
itors," gives a vast supremacy to our navy, and it
will not be long before you hear of new exploits iu
Trust in the righteousness of the cause, confidence
in the resources of the nation, and faith in the hon
esty and ability of the President, have grown strong
during the struggle of one aud a half years. Such a
people are iuviucible. 44 God speed the right."
Yours, &c, Nui'ANr.

Tlic aroii nml the Liquor t'nuo.
Mr. Editor: What are the duties of a clergy
man ? I have thought this subject over a great deal
since I read the Friend of this month. I find therein
that our worthy friend the Parsou of the Bethel, and
Editor of the Friend, puts us poor publicans beyond
the pale of Christianity and the hope of salvation,
because iv minister to the wants of some people asc
ministers to the wants of others Now the worthy
Parson evidently considers liquor selling as little bet
ter than poisoning, if uot quite as bad, and yet, as
a singular illustration of human inconsistency, he
was never known to refuse the dollars coming from
so polluted a source. If his heart is so sensitive to
the vile n ess of a publican, how is it that his hand is
so callous to the touch of that publican's dollars?
Mankind has a complexity of wants; some men want
a sermon, and they go to the Bethel, for instance;
they become 44 dry," and they come to us for refresh
ment. Cau he tuke credit to himself for the one
want, any more than ire should take blame to our
selves for the other ? We neither sow nor water the
grist that comes to our mills; if it is light of weight
aud smutty in the grain, the fault lies with the
teachers and parsons, and not with us. The law
protects us in our calling, and everybody cannot
atTord to buy their ale and wines by the dozen, as
some parsons and church-members do. Is the poor
man's want of a glass of liquor any more reprehensi
ble than the rich man's want of a bottle? Are the
publicans any more to blame because men with a
will aud repousibility of their own, make beast3 of
themselves by frequenting these places, any more
than parsons are to blame because men ami women
become fanatics and tiindmeu by frequcuting their
places? I am uot philosopher enough to study this
out, though the cause seems to me to be deeper
than the surface. A publican in his corner of the
temple may oiler a ptayer as pure and free of guile
as the most self-sufficient parson m his pulpit; and
suiely that thought should arrest the judgment, and
stop the revflings of the latter. There is a wide
difference, to be sure, between the trade of a publi
can and the trade of a parson; and yel, though
unprincipled, money-mad or abstinence-bitteu men
may disgrace the one or the other calling, to call publi
cans the vilest of mankind because they follow a living
that society sanctions in every land, the law author
I and .the ?osl'e.1 Uoes ,u,t forbi'1' is grossassump-
Hon on the part ot a clergyman, and may be chastised
as impertinence in any other man. 1 am t-roud to
