Away back in the misty past, forty and fifty
years ago, ere newspapers and reporters Lad
elbowed themselves into Hawaiian civilization, the
day was honored and kept as no other day was.
And the fact which we record of the day here, is
equally true of almost every other country in the
world. In China, Japan, India, Sydney and
Melbourne, in Chile and Peru, and even in the
European Commercial centers, the 4th of July
ha9 become a great day. Last year, London
and Liverjool are stid to have given the appear

toasts and speeches, were held there too.

in tlie programme, at sunrise there was a salute
of 13 guns indicating the original number at

o'clock, a large and appreciative audience assem

tastefully decorated with flags. Above the pul

while a new and gorgeous silk American Aug

There were numerous festive gatherings during

prominent of which we will notice.
Picnic at Punahou College.
This was under the direction of the committee
of thirteen, of whom Dr. R. W. Wood was
chairman, and was the only gathering open to
ladies and children. After the proceedings at
the Church bad closed, the road to Punahou
appeared alive with vehicles, and owing to the
liberal provision of the committee, ample con
veyances were had for all who wished to ride.
About 1 o'clock, a magnificent American flag
was hoisted on a pole erected for it on the Col
lege grounds, the choir and assembled multitude
tinging the soul-etirring ode of
The Star-Spangled Banner.
O say, can j-ou see by the dawn's early H0'ht,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming
Whose broa I stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming ;
And rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in a-r,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there
O say, does that Star-Spangled lianner yet wave
O'er the land of the Free and home of the Brave ?
Tlie Declaration of Independence was nest
read by A. B. Bates, Esq., who introduced it with
Borne very timely remarks on the circumstances
that led to its promulgation in 1770.
No more appropriate spot could have been
chosen than the College, the ample grounds
around it affording an abundance of room for
visitor?, their horses and carriages. Under the
directions of the committee of arrangements, a
lare tent had been erected in front of the
College, beneath which were spread three long
tables, loaded with as tempting a repast and
choice variety as was ever seen on such occasions.
About 2 o'clock, the ladies were invited to sit
down to the entertainment, which was presided
over bv Judge Allen, (in the absence of Dr.
Woud, who did not arrive till later in the day)
His Honor opened the feast with some very
appropriate remarks, delivered in that happy,
self-pssesscd style characteristic of him, and
alluded most touchingly to the sufferings and
the struggle now in progress in America. He
was followed by Dr. Anderson, Rev. Mr. Da
mon, Mr. M'Bride, and several other gentlemen.
The exercises were interspersed with singing of
various national odes, among which re VAincr-
(jJermans, English and others. Like everything
undertaken by Mr. Dowsett, the lv.au was well
done, and if we may judge from the encomiums
that have fljwed from the lips of his guests, a
better feast was no where given on chat day, and
none more relished or enjoyed. Toasts and
speeches were made, some of which we would
like to report in full had we space. After the
dinner was ended, the company engaged in
shooting wild turkeys, the lucky marksmen
being entitled to their game. Some twenty
birds were killed.
The way that Mr. Dushalsky, the Pole who
presides over the tannery, made the " peace
maker'' rin its national salute of 35 jruns to
the " Union as it is and shall be," would have
been a caution to the Cossacks who are tramp
ling down the rights and liberties of his coun
trymen in Poland, who are now engaged in a
struggle for national independence.
The fact that seventy or eighty raec'ianics of
different nationalities, assembled at a fourth of
July celebration, and passed the day in pleasant
social festivity, with ait a case of intoxication,
dispute or accident of any kind, speaks well for
Honolulu and for them. We question whether
any other city can show a like gathering with a
At Mr. Love's, in Nuuanu street, a sumptuous
dinner was spread for some twenty foreigners
and about as many natives. JSo where did we
see mure handsomely provided tables than these,
the decorations were neat and appropriate,
and the pastries, dessert and cakes were elegant,
and were enjoyed by a gusto seldom wittsessed.
What was most singular ab;ut it was the fact
that all the foreigners were Englishmen, keeping
" the fourth" in true Christmas stvle.
At the American Hospital, a fine dinner was
given by T. T. Dougherty, Esq., at which about
CO guests, including the inmates of the institu
tion, sat down. The arrangements were most
admirably carried out by the steward, Mr. Mer
ritt, who appeared to be the right man in the
right place. Tlie Hospital buildings were orna
mented with evergreens, beautifully festooned.
The tables were liberally and generously load
ed" with roast pigs, turkeys, and other ' fixings."
The Stars and Stripes floated no where on the
fourth, over a more cheerful or patriotic company
than that which gathered around the tables of
the American Hospital.
At Kalia, Mr. Xaone's residence, towards
Waikiki, we had the pleasure of dropping in on
a crowd of several hundred natives enjoying a
feast, where a well-trained choir discoursed sev
eral very pretty songs iu Hawaiian. ..
At Waikiki and also at Ewa were other
smaller parties, where the day was spent ii, fes
tive gatherings more retired than thoue we have
Incidents of the Day.
At 12 o'clock noon a salute of 35 guns was
fired, and at sunset another of 13 guns was fired.
In the evening, fireworks were disphiyod in
various parts of the town, before Dr. Hoffmann's
in Nuuanu street, at Mr. Carter's in Emma
Place, and at Mr. Foster's in Fort street.
A very large number of flags were observed
flying in town during the day, most conspicuous
among which was the splendid royal standard
from the Palace flagstaff. During the day the
streets appeared unusually quiet for a holiday,
and until the return of natives from their rural
feasts, there was not much horse ridirg.
There has never been a ' 4th of July" kept

there and converted to the Christian faith.
These humble Sandwich Islanders may there
fore be considered as the representatives of ti eir
people, and the call for teachers to go to them
as strong and as direct as any that ever was
wade by any heathen people. Forty-three years
have pxssed, and there are lew living here who
will not admit that the following remarkable
changes have taken place in that interval :
1 A Christian Government is established, with a
King and Queen at its head, who are in every re
spect as educated an J as competent for the position
they hold, as any rulers on earth.
2 The Hawaiian people have become in every
sense of the word a Christian 1'eopli:, a large pro
people, namely, incentives to industry. Its phy
sieal health, its moral, social, religious and
political well-being, all hinge'on this one virtue,
industry, as we have often sought to impress
on our readers and not on health commissions,
sanitary regulations, educational reforms, and
metaphysical humbugs as set forth in the wishy
washy, unintelligible, unread and unreadable
leaders of the Polynesian.
Different minds will have different ideas re
garding the best mode of inciting industry
among the natives, and all may not be willing
to concede every proposition of " Patria,"

of things in this kingdom are attributable to
the labors of American Mis.ionaries, is a ques
tion which we do not purpose here to argue,
but the fact that the American Board has ex
pended in sustaining its mission here, during
the period named, ottr one 7tii7ion. of dollars ,
entitles it to at least a small claim of having
been a principal means in effecting them. That
this state f things now exists is all that con
cerns us for the present.
Dr. Anderson's visit to the islands was under
taken with this view of our religions and social
condition. After visiting each Mission station,
and conferring with tlie missionaries, the fallow
ing changes were dcussedand have been adopted
by them at their recent general meeting in this
1st. The Missionaries of the Board will be sas-
jained by it in future and not by the native churches,
as has been the ease in part for the past ten years.
2d. Natives will be educated for the ministry and
settled as pastors, all over the group, aa rapidly as
they cau be brought into service.
8d. More atteuiion will be given to the education
of native fenia'es.
4th. A Board consistinz of 21 members, of whom
two-thirds are foreigners and one-third natives, has
been organized to carry on and be responsible for the
work of missions both here and abroad.
This board is to meet monthly, tmd has been
organized by the choice of Rev. T. Coan as
President, Dr. Ct. P. Judd as Vice-President,
E. 0. Hall, Esq., as Treasurer, Dr. L. II .
Gulick, Cor. Secretary, and Rev. E. W. Clark,
sThe purpose of the American Board in send
ing Dr. Anderson out here has not been to ter
minate its mission, nor to reduce its expenses,
but to make it more active and efficient to
place it on a different basis, so that the native
element may in the lapse of time be brought
forward to perform its own teork and native
Hawaiians may be prepared to occupy the places
and fulfil the duties now performed by foreign
teachers. So far from the Board in Boston
having any idea of relinquishing the field which
it has occupied for forty-three years, it is as
ready to expend a second million of dollars, if
necessary, in carrying out its plans, as it has
been in expending the first million.
The plan of the Board to call into active
service the labor and talents of native Hawaii
ans, is one that will meet the hearty endorse
ment of all foreigners. If this people is ever
to occupy the position of a self-sustaining, inde
pendent people, now is the time to begin. Let
its public offices be filled with natives, its judge
ships with natives, its schools with natives, and
its pulpits with natives. The old heathen pro
verb applies with special force here : 44 The
gods help those who help themselves." Hawaii

acquire wealth, and feel secure in the possession of it.
I The multitude of small farmers constitute the very back-bone
of tne nation ; yet our Statute book, and thu Legislature who
made it, is disgraced by an enactmeut causing the poor fanner
tu p.iy a tux in the shape i f a duty upon his farming imple
ments, while the rich planter imports his duty free.
' The internal improvements of the Kingdom can easily be
gummed up, for they are all here in Honolulu ; the Esplanade,
tho Water-Woiks. and the Steamer, for which, together with
other Honolulu improvements, the nation has incurred a debt of
-upuarils of $1S0.000. How much the internal resources of the
Kingdom have been developed by these improvements requires
no argument to show. Still our Ksplanade is a good one, well
built. It will accommodate all the produce that we must have
to p:iy our debts and make us rich. Our new Custom House
stunils upon it alone in its glory, with its fine proHrtions and
business-like exterior inviting our merchants to become its neigh
bors. They will do it when it will pay but not before. We
have our steamer, too, to bring that produce to market. Now,
we want the produce.
The educational interest, which should have gone on hand in
hand with the development of our agricultural, has greatly out
stripped ic. Do we not boast of a nation of freemen, who can
all riad and write, but who, nevertheless, are not able to sup
port a paper independently ? That fact, however, much praise
is due to the Amcriean Missionaries, who, in so short a time
have done so much, and to whom all credit is due, is not, politi
cally and practically speaking, a healthy development of the
body politic. Still it is no drawback. On the contrary, no man
cn say that a knowledge of ariihiuctic is no assistance to a
man, even in plowing a field.
If the people are industrious, they will acquire regular habits
and letter houses to live in. With regular habits and good
houses, our doctors will all say, half the chances against the
life of the nation are disposed of. Hut how can they be indus
trious when they have no Inducement so to be, when there are
no roads to carry their produce to market, and no market but a
foreign one, for which, without assistance, they cannot and know
not how to produce.
Let us give our school educated people a chance to benefit
themselves, the nation, and the world generally, by providing
for them an occupa ion, by wiiii-h they will place this kingdom
firmly in the station that it has so honorably acquired among
the nations of the world.
Let not history say fifty years hence, that a nation has arisen
from the depths of tarbarism, and dial from the face of the
earth for want of occupation to provide itself with the neces
sities of life its civilization demanded.

To the Editor of the Com'l Jidvertiser : Dkae
Sia : As a life member of the above institution, I
would inquire through your columns why it baa been
allowed to die? The anniversary meeting waf held
in tbe early part of June, 18G2, the officers appoint,
ed, also the preacher for the annual sermon, with a
substitute provided in case of disappointment.
Strange to say, the whole affair has been neglected
without, "so far as I have been given to coder,
stand," a single meeting of the Directors from that
day to this. ,
The annual sermon has been emitted, and if I
understand matters aright, by the Constitution, the
Society is dead. It is a pity to see tbe religious in
stitutions of these islands; following in tbe wake of
the Agricultural Society. Its reminds one of Lao
dicea." Yours, A Life Memoer.

Change in the Anurican Minxion.
Among the passengers who left In the bark
Comet on Monday last, was the Ilev. R. Ander
son D. 1)., of Boston, who has spent on these
islands about four months, and visited dur
ing that period every Mission station on the
group, excepting only those of Hana and Molo
kai. There has been much curiosity to know
the object of his visit and what he has accom
plished, and in reply to our inquiries we have
learned the following facts, which will interest
all who have any interest in the welfare of the
Dr. Anderson left Boston in January last,
under instructions from the Prudential Com
mittee of the American Board of Commissioners
for Foreign Missions, to visit the Sandwich
Islands, to effect what had long been its object,
viz : Such changes in the relations of the Mis
sion to the American Board as the great suc
cess of their work has made necessary. The
plan of the Board in Boston will be more clearly
indicated in the following resolutions, adopted
u 1 That tlie people or tne saciwica li-iamis aii cnunen,
through the blessing of God on the labors or missionaries sent
out and sustained by this Board, to be regarded as a Christian
people, in the Tull and proper sense of that term.
- 2. 1 hat ihe Government of the Islands has become a regu
larlv organized Christian government with its Constitution and
Laws no bss accordant with the Holy Scriptures, than are
those of other Christian nations with nearly a third part of its
p-.pul.uion members of the Christian church vith the national
education, iD its various branches provided fir by the Govern
ment while houses for the worship r( God, erected and pre
served bv the people, sir.d regular Christian Miigregaiions on
the Sabbath, have become general on the Islands.
" o. That in this remarkable change, wmucht out in a sinele
generation, the Prudential Committee recoptiije the sut stantial
accomplishment of the work devolving on the Hoard as an insti
uti..n f-r propagating the Gospel among the heathen and
th.-y believe, that, if the Board is ever to retire from those Isl
ands, the time has arrived for taking api-r priate and more
decisive measures for so doing.
4. That, in a comprehensive view of the situation and pros
pects cf the Hawaiian nation, it is now only needful, that
Christian natives should be put into the GA.pe mini-try ar.d
; On Sunday last, the Stone Church was filled
with a very large audience to listen to some
farewell remarks from Dr. Anderson. The
crowded house evidenced the respect; which the
natives entertain for one who has been employ
ed in their behalf for forty years, and whose
presence has had the eueet of kindling afresh
their warmest aloha. He told them the object
of his mission to the islands, what he had ac
complished, and what was now expected of
them. He said that the same benevolent pur
pose that first prompted the American people
in sending teachers to them, would still actuare
them, but urged the importance of their endeav
ing to sustain preachers of their own race. He
spoke of the ingratitude of forsaking their old
teachers, who had taught them from infancy
to manhood, to whom they are indebted for
xchattver education social standing or civiliza
tion they enjoy, and who are still determined
to spend their lives among them in teaching
them and their children, and counseled them to
stand by them with the firmness and sincerity
they had always shown. His remarks were in
terpreted by Rev. H. H. Parker, and were lis
tened to by the immense congregation assembled
wjth the deepest attention. At the close of the
service, the people appeared loth to leave the j
house without a parting salutation and blessing
from their venerable father in God, and fully a
half hour was occupied in shaking hands with

HoB?E Taming By the bark .V. S. Perkins,
from Victoria, there arrived Prof. G. A. Bellew, a
skillful horse-tamer, who has been lecturing anJ j
practicing his profession on the Northwest coast, j
His performances and method cl training horses is i
said to be similar to that of R.arey. Our citizens
would no doubt enjoy hid exhibitions, particularly J
the native population, who are given to horse riding i
and horse breaking after a fashion of their own. j
We doubt whether there are any very vicious horses I
on the islands, which cannot be subdued with gentle j
treatment. But if Prof. Bellew cannot find wild j
horses to practice on here, we think he will find hi3 j
match in some of Mr. Dowsett's herd of wild ani un- j
branded cattle, which he has been unable as yet to
get near enough to lasso. We don't know that his TjnTft I l TJlfp rDFCIT CITMAY
