James McUridk, .
U. S. Minister Resident, Honolulu.
Honolulu, Nov. 4, 1SG3.
No custom is more worthy of observance than
the time-honored one of annual national thanks- !
giving. Ft is the united voice of a people,
acknowledging the sovereignty of the Ruler of
the Universe, and tendering their grateful hom-
yiTC to hllll as SUC.l
h. It presupposes a Christian
faith as its basis, while its observance is an
acknowledgment that the ieople uniting iu it
are a Christian community.
This custom has lor two huudrcd years been
olwerved in America, generally by proclamation
fp,ni the State (iovermrs. In 1SG0 twenty States
held this anniversary on the last Thursday of
November, and prior tO tllC Opening of the rebel- :
, , - j
lion, there was a general desire expressed by the
- , . . . 1. 1
most influential paper? in Various parts of the
Union that it should 1- changed from a State
to a National Anniversary. President Lincoln
is the first S;vereig:i of the United States that
lias given explosion to the general desire of the '
people, and has appointed the last Thursday in
November the 20th instant as a day of na
tional thanksgiving and praise A In respond-
inp; to his call, and inviting American citizens
and others t observe the day, the American
Minister, Dr. M'bniDfc, ha done what will meet
.with a jror-crai restonse.
A civil war may teem to some t; bo an nnGt
period for national thanksgiving. But a glance
at the history of the past two years will show
us much for which Americans have reason to be
grateful for respecting their country, even though
the rebellion may be far from crushed. When
the American people, ty the only constitutional
mode provided, chose Mr. Lincoln as their ruler,
and he was duly installed as such, the fiendish
ppirit of rebellion broke out. the Kile object of
wujc, Was to wrest the government from the
hands in which it had leen vested by the Consti
tution, and writ-? on the Capitol at Washington
MicnT makes IIiciit." A rebellion was com
menced, the object of which rvas and still is
to trample on the Constitution, and make the
majority submit to the minority. Th; rebellion,

When the rebellion commenced, the govern- ;
ment found itself criptded in everj respect. It9
treasurv was depleted, it army reduced and scat-
tred, its navv eont tj distmt quarters of the
glube, from whence it could only take long
months to recall it ; its ammunition, guns ana ;
inniii nit ii, ii-t., ii
stores an tasen ou ana scutereu amuug inus-nuu
were designing it? overthrew
everywhere, in every department, controlling the i
public records, and serving two master one for j
love, the other for money. Never, in the hUtory j
of any nation, has a rebellion of such magnitude j
been so well planned, commenced, and supported I
in all its minutiae and detail?, that has not t
proved successful, and resulted in dismembering '
the revolted section from the mother country.
No wonder, then, that the first sentiment of
the half-bewildered loyal people of the Union
was Jet the rebels go, it is useless to stop
them. No wonder, when they turned back to
history, they found little to encourage them to
hope for a restoration of peace, and much that
the rebellion would prove successful, and the
Union be dismembered. No wonder that foreign
governments the Hawaiian government among
the rest hastily stepped forward to concede
national riglitd to the rebel.".
Thus the rebellion began its leaders all flush
ed with hope and confident of victory from their
well-laid plans, its papers boastin with a
hundred tongues that the national seat of gov
ernment was the object of the content, and would
soon be conquered. More than half the Repub
lic was infected with the rebellion, though con-
taming but a minority of the population. ith

J struggle has continued, with what success, we
j may see by a hasty glance. Maryland, Missouri,

I by the rebels, are as firmly in the old union as
! is Maine. Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mis
sissippi, Florida and Texas are virtually redeemed
Iroui the control of the rebels, and can aflord
them little or no support. The rebellion is now
circumscribed to the five southeast slave States,
and these are so hemmed in, and cut oIT from
outside aid, sympathy and support, that their
resources are greatly crippled, and the prospect
of their holding out euccessfully much lees than
Thus we see the rebellion, which in 1SG1,
numbered thirteen States, has been suppressed
and brought within the limits of five ; while
the power of the National Government, and its
i ability to conquer, are now increased tenfold.

T'le had OCCOSlon for devout tlianks giving, tlli
brightening prospect now before them of the
final suppression of the rebellion, and the ter
mination of one of the most destructive civil
wars on record affords it.
IJut especially have Americans and the friends
of freedom here and everywhere reason to join
in public thanksgiving, for the President's de
cree of freedom to the slaves in the rebel States,
and the prospective abolition of slavery through
out the Union, for the decree is the most power
ful means yet employed for the extinguishment of
the rebellion. Theru are no slaves in tho rolel
extinct in fret; America. This is the conscience.
of the slave-mongers' rebellion, and the only good
that may ever arise from it. Whether Provi
dence has permitted this rebellion for the sole
purpose of bringing with it the freedom of the
blaves, man may not be able to say ; but certain
it is that this will be the result. We cannot
forbear quoting here the closing sentences of the
speech of Senator Sumner, bearing on this same
Thus far we the American people have K-en known, chiefly
through that vital force whi-.h Slavery could only desrade but
not suIhIuc. Now at last, by the death f Slavery, will the Re
public live. For what is life without liberty? Stretching from

nothing too minute for its care. Triumphant over the fullest

always to uphold the one and to cultivate the other. Strong in
its own iiiichty stature filled with all the fu'.lnes of a new life,
and covered with a panoply of renown, it will confess that no

forth to assert the dignity of man, and wherever any inenih r of
the human family is to lie succored, there its voice will reach
as the voice of Cromwell reached across France even to the ier-
secuted mountaineers of the Alps. Such will be this Republic :
upstart among the nations. Aye! as the steam-enpinc, the
telegraph and chloroform are upstart. Ccmlorter and helper
like these, it can know no bounds to its empire over a willing

ignorance of the law which directs persons riding or
driving, always io turn to the right, in passing others.
Not long since, a horse wa9 killel in Nuuanu avenue

the Kaznn was on the nzht side. Ua lues lav
ja,f ft foreigner, evidentlv a stranger, wa thrown
from his hor-e in attempting to pa?s by the leit. The !
custom and rule varies in different countries some .
turn to the left, some to the right, and in others, i
drivers don't turn out at all. Here the law is expli- i
at, to turn to the right in p.i-sing, anJ persons caus-
ing accidents or deaths by a violation of its provi- j
sions, are clearly liable for damages. i
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
A Captcbed Eagle. Capt. Stivers, of the whale
ship Cicero, informs us, that during his last cruise
northward, and when about 00 miles from the Fox
Islands, a large American E igle came on board, dur
ing the evening, alighting in one of the boats. A
eeam:n observing the stranger, at once approached
and seized him, but the eagle struggled and fought
bravely, and it required all the power of the sailor
i to capture him. He was secured aud kept on board
for several days, but as his food did not agree with
him, and he appeared likely to die, Capt. S. loosed
him and let him go. The bird flew off nearly out of
sight, tut soon returned and commenced flying in
circles round and round the ship, till he alighted and
was again secured. Will bird and fish were then
caught for him, which he greedily devoured, show
ing that these were his accustomed food, on which he
thrived and was brought into port. He has been
taken to the American Hospital, where he will find
a home, food and shelter, as long as his old guardian
and patron Uncle Sam continues to provide for the
wants of his roving sons. This eagle is a male and
a very large bird. Some years ago, a female eagle
was brought here by a whaler, and is probably liv
ing here yet. Perhaps if placed together, they may
j recognize their relationship, and the union prove a
j happier one than many other unions that occur,
i ' Colored Soldiers and Seamen
against colored men in the American army and navy
is fast dying out, and both branches of the service
are increasing the number employed. On the first
of August, the United States army had about 30,000
colored troops in service, nnd it was expected that
before January, 1S64, the number would not be less
than 100,000. The navy, according to a late state
ment from the Navy Department, now numbers over
5,000 colored seamen. They were originally intro
duced as cooks and stewards, and for years were not
eeen on deck. At present they are seameu, o-dinary
seamen, landsmen and boys the marine corps and
the ward room being the only portion of a man-of-war
from which they are excluded. At the South.
too, negroes are now employed in every branch of
military service, excepting that arms are not yet
entrusted to them. But if the war continues many
months, neceseity will overcome even that scruple,
and they will be armed and employed as soldiers by
Tii a misgiving. At the request of many of our
"citizens, Eev. E. Corwin will deliver a discourse on
the 26th instant, (next Thursday) appointed by
President Lincoln as a day of national thanksgiving.
The service will be at the Fort street Church, at 11
o'clock. A. M. of that day. We presume the exer
cises will include the anthems usual on euch occa
sions. Ashore. We learn verbally that the schooner
Hannah went ashore in a blow at Nawiliwili Bay,
Kauai, last week, and to save the hull, her masts
were cut away. The accident occurred in nearly the
same place where the ITekauluohi was injured some
years ago. We understand that the vessel is not so
badly injured, but that she will be refitted.
'"Cvi5f The schooner .Manuokawai returned on Tues
day from the Marquesas, bringiug as passenger Rev.
) B. W. Parker, who was sent as delegate to that
mission. We have learned no particulars of the
; schooner's cruise, but hear that the missionaries
j stationed there were well. The small-pox was report
ed at Nuuhiva, and the schooner avoided touching
there on that account. r-............

Peivatiers Much has been said about the diffi
culty of catching the rebel privateers. An instance
is afforded in the cruise of the steamer Ino, com
manded by our old friend Capt. James M. Williams,
formerly in the whaling service. A more brave or
persevering man is not to be found in the American
navy. Up to August 1, the Ino had been in the
United States service for 28 months, during which
time she has been idle but three and a half months
for repairs, &c. During the balance of that time,
llJi months, she has cruised 61,875 miles under
several different commanders, r.ll the time in search
of rebel privateers in the vicinity of wher they had
been last reported, and jn the vicinity where subse
quent reports prove them to have been at the time,
yet the Ino has not been enabled to fall in with any
'i Planters' Club. A notice will be found else
where, calling a meeting of all interested in promot
ing the cultivation of our Btaple agricultural pro
ducts. The plan is, we suppose, to organize a club,
such as are common in other countries, at which dif
ferent modes of cultivation and matters pertaining
to agriculture, can be freely discussed, and views of
numbers interchanged. Such clubs are elsewhere
productive of much good, and one ought to have the
9aroe result here.

items a day or two since, nnd passing the regnery,
we heard a cry of " murder." On entering and
looking lor the cause of tbo noise, we observed one of
the hands hauling a lad out of the molasses tank,
into which he had accidentally fallen. The urchin
was covered with molasses from shoulders to foct,
and hardly knew whether he was alive or ded, but
soon recovered sufficiently to make tracks for '.'he
water, where he took a salt water bath, which re.
stored the color of his skin, if not that of his clothes.
