UntintM Rule. .
The rcreraes of the past few yearj. have been an experience
which abould be valuable to all baainesa men. Fortones which
bad been years lit aocnmulatin. hare su-ldenly didappeareil.
. Thousand who oncv thooirhc themaelrea atron?, never to be
broken, have been slavered to atoms, and are left penniless.
They most now begin again. 'Many have paed the prime of
life. Their step ia k elastic, their train less attire, and they
will hereafter work with an abiding consciousness that
tbey cannot plan ami execute as In days gone by. We never
see suck laic new bxi:iuiers without real sympathy and a de
sire to sire them an encouraging word and a lefping harxl.
But In this writing we have to do, not with the unfortunate or
those who are reconstructing their temporal affairs, but with
the yooog and prosjieroas, and with those who have weathered
aJ the storms and are yet sailing smoothly.
Most men, wheo they start in business, make good resolu
tions. At any late they meau to succeed. They expect to
avoid the dangers which have rained others. For a while all
goes on well, but the day comes at length when they are swept
away and all their brilliant earthly projects are gone forever.
According to an ok) maxim, it is never too bite to learn.
Ihisines men. however, do not believe thi.- Every one thinks
. that h has perfected himself in knowledge, that he needs no
help or al vice frm any quarter, and that if others Lave failed
of success, that Is no reason why he should follow in the same

which govern and Influence most men in all matters except the
conduct of a mercantile business. Here they mean to be origi
nal. They don't want the advice of anybody. Just here we
desire to speak . We wish to propose to such men the follow
ing roles for their practical consideration : -
1st. Do not m nder take ft business with which yon are not
perfectly acquainted, any sooner than you would attempt, if
btind, to survey a city. First thoroughly understand what yoa
propose to do. Serve in apprenticeship do anything before
taking ft single step involving risk.
2d. Never attempt a business for which yoa have no taste or
tact. S-.-ek to do that for which yoa liave a natural faculty and
refish. TXMi't aspire to be a merchant, when you should be a
. fanner, mechanic, or ft day-laborer.
3d. Never connect yourself in partnership with those in
whom yoa have not perfect confidence with those to whom
yoa would not be willing, sick or well, at home or abroad, liv
ing or dead, to intrust all your business affairs.
4th. Krver attempt to do more busiuess than you can safe
ly do on yoor capital.
Sth.- Avoid taking the extraordinary risks of tong credits.
Do matter what profits are in prospect.
6th. Aire no credit whatever to any one who does not pos
sess ft good moral character.
Tib. Supervise, carefully, your own business, (not your
neighbor's,) and kmk after your clerks, and See that they are
faithful in the er( rmance of all their duties.
&Uw iet fill those with whom you have dealings or inter
eourw, understand, distinctly, that yoa will not lend yourself,
fur the sake of trade, to do any mean thing anything which
your conscience will not approve of.
9th. Never lend yoor name by endorsement or otherwise,
except under most extraordinary circumstances, and then let
the act be guarded with every possible security.
10th. Never allow yourself or your partners, to draw a dol
lar from the concern, to invest in any outside operation"
11th. In forming a oo-paitnership, insist that a limited fixed
sum only rhall be drawn by each i-artner, for personal expen
ses. 12th. Under no circumstances whatever deal in stocks.
Don't believe any one of the thousand" marvelous tales of a for
tune in that direction. They are a trap anil a lie.
13th. Keep all your accumulated profits in your business,
so long as yoa owe a dollar. When you have more capital
Una yoa can oae. then it will be proper to invest it outide.
14tn. Ib-rrow nt banks or other sources never, if it can be
voided. If temorary asitanoe is needed, seek it from ft
tried friend or from ft sound banking institution, and then re
turn the loan, on the day fixed, with the most r;il punctuality.
ISth. Hate an eve on the condition of the country, its
cmp, and the general prospects for business, and look out
sharp Cor the movements of politicians, who, in nine cases oat f
of ten, care more tut ft re-election than fur our commercial in-
terests or oar national prosperity. . i
There are other and iaot important matters which should j
not be forgotten. Keep good company. Value integrity more ;
than money. Live within your means. Eschew wine, theatres ,
ftod fatt horses. Use no profane language. Never quarrel i
with a partner, lie kind, cnnMeraU-, and generous to clerks, I
and also to your anlortunate debtitrs. Cultivate the friendship
of aX Do your proper share in promoting the public weal.
Be man, a gentlemau. and Christian. nd yoa will make
sure of an inheritance in this life and of untold riches in the
I if which is to come. .V. Y. Inlrpeidrnt.

THURSDAY. DECEMBF.R 31.
In our review of the ministerial appointments
last week, we left off with the notice of the
Minister of Finance.
Hardly less surprising was the RE-appointment
or HU .Excellency R. C. "Wvllie as Minister of
Foreign Affairs. In former administrations, the
presence of Mr. Wyllie in the Ministry was con
sidered by some a necessity, and that without
him the four-wheeled etate coach must travel on
three wheels, liable to be upset with the Crst
jolting. That notion has happily become obso
lete, and more confidence has been expressed
and felt in the ability of the nation to produce
its own administrative officers. What twenty
or even ten years ago may have been a necessity,
now no longer exists; Under these circum
stances, it was generally believed that His Excel
lency would embrace the opportunity of retiring
from the service of the government with a fame
which any statesman might envy. And this
belief was strengthened by the circumstance that
his private business was of such a nature as to
interfere with the proper administration of his
duties and excite distrust in him as a pub
lic officer ; and also by the fact that he has repeat
edly expressed a desire to be relieved. Although
it is difficult to point out anything for which
he deserves special credit, unless it be the war
department, yet it must be admitted that the
nation bus advanced in character and position
during the term of his incumbency. No better
time was ever afforded to a statesman to retire
crowned with honors than was offered to him on
the demise of the late King.
AfMed to this there was another equally po
tentason for his retirement. He is almost the
only existing representative of a policy that is
now fast becoming obsolete the theory that the
Hawaiian Government cannot exist without em
ploying aliens, and by aliens we mean those who
have not become thoroughly identified with the
Hawaiian people strangers, ignorant of our
language and wants : To be more explicit on
this point, let us say, there are two policies J
which have become the leading ideas in Hawaii
an politics :
1st. That it-is necessary in the administra
tion of this government to introduce a ruling
foreign or alien element, and that that element
must be increased and strengthened as the chief
means of maintaining the standing of the Ha
2d. That Hawaiian are of themselves capa
ble of administering the government, so as to
inspire confidence at home and command respect
Between there two ideas, is the present clash
in Hawaiian politics. Mr. Wyllie is supposed
to be the embodiment of the former, which, as
we said, is becoming a vestige of the past.
When, therefore, it was rumored that to him
had been assigned the task of reraoddling the
Ministry of the present Sovereign, it was hoped
that he would yield his peculiar notions, and,
by the selection of a Haicaiianizcd Ministry,
usher in the new reign with an administration
that would command the welcome supxort of all
classes, chiefs and commoners, foreign and native
born. Hut the promulgation of a Ministry, in
which the oil idea continues to predominate,
with himself at the head, throws distrust and
anxiety among every class and leaves little hope
for any political peace during its existence. It
shows, moreover, that he lacks ' the judgment
which a statesman should possess to discern the
progressive spirit of the times, and it would
have been .better for him and for the nation
had he retired whun the favorable moment
The. advancement of the Attorney-General to
a seat in the Cabinet Council is a merited testi
monial to the abilities of that officer. We should
not have been surprised to have seen Mr. Harris
retained in the Ministry, for which he possesses
many qualifications : But the fact that he has
proved a vigilant officer in the position he holds,
and has done good service to the government
there, has probably led to his continuance in
the same place, where the compensation is only
half that of a Minister, and less than it should
be. To show that his services in his present
place have been valuable, we may state that
during the two years he has held office, he has
saved to the covcrnroent about fourteen thousand
dollars set down in its accounts as lost.
The connection of the Attorney-General with
' the Cabinet, as also that of the Chancellor,
! (the latter formerly a member of that body,)
t is probably intended merely as advisory. The
I Ministers in their own departments are supposed
i to be the best judges of the capabilities and
merits of those appointed under them, and to
j their judgments in their plans and appointments,
i the others can offer no great objections.
J The cause of the increase in the number of
I members of the Cabinet is not clear, unless it
I be intended virtually to set aside the Privy
Council of State, which i? far from desirable.
! Of late years, or since the death of Kauikeaouli,
f the Cabinet has been the acting liody, and the
i Privy Council virtually ignored, assembling per-'
J haps once or twice a year. Whether this system
i is still to be continued remains to be seen.
! Pmanwir In . n iritPwiow tho rVflKf WPP I: with
. ,. , ,. . ,
the Police Magistrate, be disavowed all intention of
castii s any slur on the prohibitory liquor law as
stated in our last issue. The language referred to
was indeed used, but in such a way as to convey a
j doubtful ineauiog, but with no idea ou the part of
Davis, in his decisions and judgments, has so uni
formly given public satisfaction and shown a disposi
tion to do the fair thing, that the expressions refer
red to appeared the more extraordinary and notice-tbla.
Our Copperhead 3Iliilstry.
" Governments are indeed contracts tetween the rulers and
the people. Subordinate contracts for objects of mere occasion-..
al 1 uteres! s may be formed and dissolved at pleasure ; bat the
State in its administrative functions, ought not to he considered
as nothing better than a partnership agreement in a traffic of
sugar and coffee, calico and tobacco, to be taken up tor ft liuie
temporary interest or policy."
It has always been our misfortune to differ
with the government organ on matters of
politics, whether local or foreign, whether
Hawaiian, Union or Secesh ; and it has equally
been its misfortune always to differ with the
public on questions of passing interest. This is
of course expected from the different impulses
operating on the two presses. In a violent
tirade in its last issue, the Polynesian takes
us to task for reflectins the popular sentiment"
on some of the recent appointments, but as
usual makes a mistatement in the outset. We
had nothing, to say last week concerning "the
Cabinet much less that it was li a set of
incapables, and political and social incendi
aries," but our remarks were confined to crit
icisms on the King's Ministers. The Ministry
is one body, consisting now of but three persons ;
the Cabinet is another body, consisting of Eix ;
and the Privy Council, a third, with a still
larger number. Neither of the two latter
councils is complete without the previous.
In the obtuseness of its vision, the organ
cannot see how Mons. do Yarigny might be
complimented for his bearing as acting repre
sentative of France, and yet be condemned as
totally unfitted for the highest office in the
Jlawaiian Government. We spoke well of him
on his retirement from the office of acting consul
of France, and would do the same thinr aain,
even though in doing so we should again be
ridiculed by the business community for giving
expressions to views which, however well
intended, did riot meet public favor, as the
editor of tLe Polynesian himself may be aware.
On the other hand, the criticisms uttered in
this paper last week have been endorsed so
generally that they may be considered as rc
jleclinrj the unanimous sentiment of the public,
excepting always the editor of the Polynesian
who in politics is not supposed to possess a
mind ot his own. Because a man serves before
the mast with credit to himself, is of itself no
reason that he is qualified to command a squad
ron in a naval engagement. The eternal law
of fitness should control all things, in the
common affairs of life as well as in the weightier
matters of state.
Mons. de Varigny, however well qualified
for the offices he has lately held, and however
well he may have filled them, is believed to be
totally unfitted for the high and responsible
position of Treasurer of the Hawaiian Kingdom,
for which certain qualifications, experience,
or sentiments in harmony with the people, are
everywhere acknowledged as requisite. For these
reasons, the public, with a unanimity seldom
witnessed, have condemned the appointment as
unwise, and likely to create much domestic
trouble, which can and ought to be avoided.
In ' giving expression to these murmurs, we
have only uttered the popular sentiment, and it
will be exceedingly unfortunate for the govern
ment and the people, if a Ministry is established
that lacks the popular good will and sympathy.
Well, well, its policy, sir, for us to employ
a Frenchman." Aye that's it policy. But
must all our interests be sacrificed for policy-sake
to the fossilized ideas of the Secretary at War?
What would be thought, if, in any reorgan
ization of the French Ministry, the Secretary
of the British Plenipotentiary at the court of:
St. Cloud were to be preferred Jor policy-sake ;
as Minister of Finance to the Emperor Napoleon,
and all French statesmen set aside? And
what if 6uch appointment were made while the
nominee were totally ignorant of the French
language, ' though lie had resided ten years
in Paris? Would the French people submit
to it even one hour? Would not rather the
bounreoise rise en masse and resist as an insult
the presumption of any Englishman to occupy
the highest position under the crown ? How
much less would a Hawaiian be tolerated there ?
This is the view taken by the mass of the
people, and we have good reason to believe
by the-majority of the officers of His Majesty's
Government also. Were there one recommen
dation in favor of Mons. de Varigny's appoint
ment in preference to others whose claims to
the Ministry are numerous, and whose identifi
cation with the nation is absolute, we might
consent to waive ' opposition and allow the
nominee a chance to learn something about
Ministerial and Hawaiian affairs. But at this
late day there can be no apology for any
nominee presuming to seek Ministerial office
for the purpose of there qualifying himself for
his profession. We have had enough of incom
petent officers, both in the Ministry and out
of it, and the only wonder is, that the Minister
of Foreign Affairs, in reorganizing the Cabinet,
should have ignored history, and sacrificed the
good name, credit and. peace of Hawaii nei to
an obsolete idea. A good name is too valuable
to be risked for so trifling a stake.
New Board of Health. The Minister of the
Interior has appointed a new board of health, con
sisting of the following members:
The Minister of the Interior,
5 Dr. Wm. Hillebrand,
Dr. H. Stangewald,
Theo. C. Heuck, Eq , and
A. M. Kahalewai, Esq
The selection of these gentlemen gives promise of
increased efficiency in the health department. The
health of all large cities should always be guarded
carefully, and especially those located in warm and
sultry climates like Honolulu. The fevers that are
prevailing so extensively in and out ot the city are
undoubtedly owing mainly to accumulating filth, and
under vigilant inspection could be abated. We
doubt not that our citizens will cheerfully co-operate
with the board in any measures that may be estab
lished to keep the city in a healthy condition.
Fire Afloat. On Monday, about 1 o'clock, P.
M., an alarm of fire was given, caused by dense
smoke issuing from the hold of the whalesbip- Jireh
Swift. The fire companies were promptly at the
wharf, and soon at work in checking the Sames,
which did not take long. No damage was done to
the vessel, as the fire ooly consumed, the fuel
used to ignite it, and had not reached the timbers. A
colored sailor was arrested the same day as a deserter
who has confessed to setting the Ehip on fire on Sun
Outside. The friends of the American Union, and
their name is legion, who have contributed for the
relief of the wounded and disabled soldiers, will find
on the last page - an account written by two ladies,
showing how these funds are used. The sketch is
furnished to us in pamphlet form, and the remainder
of it will be giten next week.
JfOTES OF THfc WF.KK.
sw Year's Day. With this evening closes the
year 18C3 a most eventful one in Hawaiian historj;
and with to-morrow's dawn, ft new ye.tr ushers in.
The weeks, months and years glide bj with a speed
that permits but few to improve them as they would.
The jear 1802 was marked with the loss of one ot
the loveliest buds that decked the evergreen wreath
that surrounds the crown of Hawaii; and the year
just closing has broken the stalk from which that
bud grew. The crown is there, and the wreath is
there, but the two bright jewels, that a few months
ago adorned it, are now known only in history. It
will be the prayer of every well-wisher of our gov
ernment, chiefs nud people, that the hand of Time
"may rest lightly on us all, and years pass ere we are
called to chronicle the death of auother prince of the
house of Hawaii, i
Presentation AmtiJjthe little incidents which
serve to enliven the monotony of existence, when
whalers are scarce and business dull, we would no
tice the presentation of a beautiful Hawaiian flag to
the cfScers and members of the Punabou Vol
unteers," (a company whose precision and thorough
knowledge of everything pertaining to the rifle tac
tics, is worthy of much commendation,) by the pat
riotic young ladies of Oahu College, accompanied
by a fitting address from one of their number. The
fiag was received by the Captain, who, in behalf of
the Company, made a few remarks, which were fol.
lowed by three cheers for Our Flag," three more
for the officers of the institution, and three times
three for the fair donors. The tUg was then saluted
with three rounds, after which the company went
through sundry evolutions for the benefit of the
spectators. V .
f Poisoned. We learn from Dr. Stangenwald, that
some seventy natives have been poisoned within the
past week, by eating beef packed in a barrel that
formerly contained hide poison." The poison pro
duced immediate and very severe vomiting, which,
with most of the patients, has given relief. But two
deaths are supposed to have, occurred from it. An
analysis of the brine and wood of the
barrel showed the poison to le very strong. The
container was probably used with the idea, perhaps,
that after an ordinary washing it would do no injury.
But this instance is sufficient to show that any bar
rel or box used for hide poison, should never be
used for anything else but fuel. )
J A Model Craft. The little schooner bearing the
sweet pretty name Helen, which returned on Friday
from a cruise to Howland's Island, has proved her
self to he no ordinary craft. Though only about
fifty tons burthen, she is a very fast sailer, and a
splendid sea boat. She made the passage up from
Howland's Island in twenty-one days, which time
has been beaten on only one occasion by that re
markable vessel, the Josephine. . And this was done
by the Helen, deeply-laden with 44 . persons on
board, comprising her own crew and the officers and
crew of the wrecked ship Jlslerion, with the necessr
ry provisions, water, &c, for a long voyage. She
sailed yesterday on another voyage, . having been
chartered to visit the Phoenix Guano Islands,
N-.ELECT10S Day. There is no telling what a day
here in Honolulu may bring forth. Last week there
were no signs of any general interest in the coming
election, but this week the tables are turned, and we
hear that there are no less than twenty different
tickets in circulation for Honolulu alone. As ihere
are only four representatives to be chosen here, it
would appear that the chances of the 80 candidates
are .narrowed down to be as small as those in a
Havana lottery. If all these tickets keep up before
the people, there is promise of a lively time on Mon
day next. Among the prominent foreign candidates,
most likely to be elected, are G.Rhodes, Jas. I.
Dowsett, Wm. Webster, and J. Mott Smith. One or
two natives may be chosen, but among 75 names up,
it will take shrewder Yankees than we to guess who
1 Pacific and Atlantic Whales. One of the New
Bedford papers boasts of a whale taken by a
' Greenland whalesbip, from which were obtained
two hundred barrels of oil and 4000 lbs. of bone."
This may be an extraordinary animal for the Atlan
tic waters, in which whales are so sharply pursued
that they can only grow to about two-thirds their
natural size. Our Arctic whales, however grow
much larger, and several have been taken this
season that yielded from 240 to 250 barrete.
Whales are not untreqcently captured in the Arctic
yielding over 300 barrels of oil, with a correspond
ing amount of bone. "
Square Your Sails." There is no more appro
priate time than the close of the year to settle up
old accounts, by prompt payments. The older
they are, the more reason fortheir speedy settlement.
If there are disputes between parties regarding
bills, make concessions, so as to rub xut the old
scores. The sailor never is more happy then when,
after heavy and rough weather he is called to square
his sail9 and run before a fair breeze. So with
landsmen laborers, mechanics, merchants and all
tbey never are more cheerful and happy than when
they are able to commence the new year with debts
all settled, and square sails.
jGettixo SnAKY. The inhabitants of Hawaii may
.congratulate themselves that they are not the only
people living on shaky foundations. By the follow
ing, it would appear that even old Enzland herself
is beginning to feel the thumping of Pluto against
the wall3 of his enclosure.
The whole of Eneland was shaken by an earthquake, on the
6th of October. Windows were shaken, doors opened, and in
some places crockery broken. Charles Dickens was quite
rudely turned about in his bed.
This is what we should call playing the
Dickens" with an author, and the event may sug
gest to him another story with that title. V
Expected News Local politics have so complete
ly engrossed public attention for the past two weeks,
that the incoming mail was almost forgotten, till the
telegraph yesterday morning hoisted the mail signals,
and set the town all alive with speculations as to the
tenor of the news. The vessel tamed out to be not
the Comet but the Hue Hawaii, 6 months from New
Bedford. So we ehall have to wait a few days for
the Hallie Jackson or the Comet, both which vessels
ought to appear daring the next week, with news to
about the 10th of December.

(Correspondence of the Pacific Coiut Advertiser.)
Mr. Editor : Will you permit me, pro bono pub
lico, to call the atttntiou of those interested in
coasting about the Islands, to the wants of the route
between Honolulu and Hilo? Time was when we on
this part of Hawaii rejoiced in the prompt and nim
ble .Yettie Merrill, with her admirable'and most
kindly accommodating Captain Borres, and, eubse.
quently, his worthy successor Captain Crane. The
beautiful craft 'Va her commanders gave us the
very beau ideal of a perfect coaster. Her trips up
and back to Honolulu were usually done in from
seven to ten days.
But the tabie9 are turned. Woe worth the day
that gave u the boasted Emma Rooke and her time
table. Exorbitant charges, trips of two and three
weeks, and the apparent determination on the part
of ber owners to accommodate nobody. The unac
commodating spirit which controls the vessel exceeds
anj thing we have known on this coast in fifteen years
paft; whilst the snail's progress made down and up,
could hardly have been matched at any time during
the twenty-five years gone by.
There is loud, long and grievous complaint all
along our coast, and whoever will put a suitable ves
sel upon the route now, may be assured of a good
and profitable business, provided of course she be
managed with reference to the accommodation of the
shipping public on the route.
We have substantial grounds for believing that the
present owners and managers of the Emma Rooke
are resolved to save themselves only, "by demanding
extraordinary pay and giving in return not a jot of
any accommodation to shippers, beyond the absolute
necessity of the case.
Does it pay, I wonder ? Did ever any dog-in-the-manger
policy pay well in the long run ? I trow
We are hoping for return of better times in our
coasting privileges, when managers shall be willing
to accord a quid pro quo in their business, and then
feel that they have enough in having all that is
fair. Ua Pau.
Hawaii, December, 1863.
The author of a poetical ronfusion, a copy of
which was addressed to me, through the post-office,
is hereby requested to call and show where the
point is, and when the laugh properly comes in, as
I cannot discover either for myself. It it my inten
tion to suitably reward Jacques' for his trouble.
