Y SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10.
1 Tiie strong and unequivocal denial maio in our
paper last week bj Rev. E. Bond of thensscrtion
uttered on several occasions before the late Con
vention, that Americans and especially the Amer
ican missionaries had advocated the alienation of
the sovereignty of this group, should not be al
lowed to pass without some remarks. Not only
was the assertivin made hy the King, but it has
been made by his Ministers on more than one oc
casion, in public and private, and especially by
the Minister of Foreign Affairs, in his wild
speeches when on a tour around the islands in
June last. No one desires more -.irnestly than
we to bear uniform loyal rcpect to our Jvjvereign,
for it is the firt duty of a subject, liut to
remain silent, is to countenance a wrong,
and justice demands the truth to be stated.
In this instance, His Majesty appeared to have
been put forward to occupy a position which
Lis Ministers cowardly shrunk from, and to be
the spokesman for acts of which they were un
willing to bear the responsibility.
Our whole community most deeply regretted
the speech of the King, to which allusion has
been made; for, had its statements been in every
respect true, instead of being basvd on hearsay
and unfounded reports, the policy of tho Sover
eign's utteriug anything Laving a tendency to
dampen or alienate the good will of a considera
ble portion of his eople, is at least questionable.
The public- are perfectly well aware that the Min
ister of Foreign Affairs has for months and years
harp-d on this charge, till he believes it himself
and has led others not conversant with the facts,
to lielieve it also. But his recent course has em
bittered the American missionaries and the body
of Americans also, against him, and fince his in
vectives, he has ceased to enjoy that respect us a
public officer which he once possessed. Ashamed
of the part which he then took according to his
conviction of right, (and which no doubt were
wise,) he now seeks to cast on others the respon
sibility of acts in which he was a principal, hoping
thereby to prove himself the only true and loyal
friend of Hawaii, and all the rest a gnngof trait
ora and conspirators. Jjt
It is all-important that the facts res:ecting the
attempts to alienate the sovereignty of this group
should be made public, for they must become mat
ters of history, and the parties concerned must
bear whatever responsibility pertains to them.
We will therefore state them as nearly as we are
able to learn them, and if our account is incor
rect, we will cheerfully make corrections.
During 184'.). the troubles between this Gov
ernment and the French Consul, Dillon, culmi
nated in an open rupture and seizure of the Fort
and Koyal Yacht, the result of which was the re
call or withdrawal of that functionary, and the
appointment of Consul Perrin. So far from am
icable relations between the two Governments be
ing restored, the ill feeling continued with vari
ous threats from the Consul, which created much
annoyance to the King (Kamehameha III.) and
his cabinet and chiefs. During 1S52 the King,
in order to escape the very humiliating position
in which he was placed, decided on seeking a for
eign protectorate. A secret council of his chiefs
and advisers was called by him, held, it is said,
at his country seat in Nuuauu. Gen. Miller, the
English Consul General, was present, and was
asked by the King, If I hoist the British flag,
will you protect me?" The General rose and
made a long speech, without giving a direct re
ply, when the Premier John Youug interrupted
him by saying, that the King had asked him the
above question, and demanded a reply. The re
sult of the conference was, that Gen. Miller de
clined to accept the protectorate, on the ground
that his instructions from the home government
forbade it. This offer was made to England's
representative at the proposal, as we have been
assured, of Mr. Wyllie, seconded by Judge Lee
and Messrs. Judd, Bates, and Armstrong. These
debates were entered of record on the minutes of
the Privy Council.
Here was the first attempt to alienate the sov
ereignty, done with the consent and knowledge
not only of Mr. Wyllie, but all the King's ad
visers and chiefs. This offer to England's repre
sentative having failed, the King sent for the
United States Commissioner, Luther Severance,
and the same question was put to him, "It I
hoist the American flag, will you protect me? "
The Commissioner, with that decision for which
he was well known, replied, " I will." Mr.
Wyllie was then instructed by the King to draw
up a treaty of cession, which he, assisted by Mr.
Armstrong, did, and it is said that treaty was ap
proved by the Privy Council, and it or a copy of
it is in existence now, with the t-ignaturcs of the
King and Mesrs. Wyllie and Severance attached
to it. We have never seen it, and cannot vouch
for the statement. This treaty was given to the
L'nited States Commissioner, to le Liuding only
tr.jVr certain contingencies.
In the meantime. General Miller had hastened
to tbe French Consul, and inf rmed him of what
was transpiring, the result of which visit was that
the latter functionary immediately altered his
tone and language, promising to accede to the
views of this Government in farming a new treaty.
great and so sudden was the change in the
political horizon, that the treaty of cession was
dropped cr recalled, and nothing further was ever
heard of it.
Sme few months after these event, Mr. Wvl
lie, whose name was prominent throughout this
affair, and for reasons now clearly apparent, of
fered a resolution in Privy Council that the rec
ords cf this discussion I crpur.gid from the min
vt(s of the Council which was done, and the
three or four leaves recording it were cut out.
Now in all this, the principal actor was Mr.
Wyllie, who advocated the cession, rst to Great
Britain, and when that failed, approved of mak
ing it to the United States. If there was treason,
tD whose skirts can it attach ?
So far from the French Consul hctenicg to
make a treaty, the same disputes arose respecting
its provisions, much to tbe annoyance of the King,
his chiefs and Cabinet. Sjiae eighteen months cr
two years later. Dr. Judd having retired from the
Cabinet, and Mr. Allen holding his place, and
Mr. Gregg being United States Commissioner,
another effort was made to alienate the sover
eignty by treaty of cession to the United S rates,
the consideration being five millions of dol
lars. The motives assigned were the same as
oa the foraer cccasicn coriua! harrassing
and threats fmm diplomatists roujl-i with a
fear that the sovereignty of the islands would
soon bo taken away. The p.roposition was
brought up by the King's advisers, only as an
ultimatum, to shield the Hawaiian Islands from
real or imaginary wrongs, which, it was thought,
might result in placing this group in the posi
tion in which the Society Islands are. It was
outside pressure" that compelled the King and
chiefs to seek protection from some stronger
power. Mr. Wyllie, as we have been informed,
approved of this cession as heartily as that in
1S52. Mr. Castle intimates the same in his letter
to-day. A treaty was prepared and the scheme
might have been carried out perhaps, so far as
this Government was concerned, had it not most
fortunately been strenuously opposed by the late
King, (then Prince Liholiho,) who refused to
join in the deliberations, and left the city, de
claring he would never sign away his claim to
Here are the facts so far as we have learned
them. As we said before, if they are incorrect,
we shall be happy to correct them. We are not
aware that any Americans advocated them except
as a last rf-sort to shield the islands from seiz
ure by a foreign government. For that objfd
many did approve it, and so did Mr. Wyllie and
many Englishmen. But so far from the Ameri
can missionaries preaching annexation from their
pulpits, we do not believe there is one on the
islands, who cannot subscribe to every word in
Mr. Bond's letter. They may have approved of
the measure, but only as the King, chiefs and
their advisors did as a last resort. If any one
was chargeable with treason, ail the King's cabi
net wore equally so.
! 'X"lto T",oi"tl'xii rvorsi.
By the clipj-er ship Malay, we received on
Wednesday one week later news than that given
in our last issue. Beyond a steady progress of
the Union cause in the American war, there U
nothing very important. At the three f'rin-'
cipal centers of the war in America, viz: Itieh
niond, Atlanta and Mobile not only has there
been no reverse, but a decided advance.
The movement alluded to in our last week's
dispatches, of Grant's ehifting his army on to
transports, proved to be, as we surmised, a feint.
One corps of his army was put on to transports,
sent down the James Iiiver, and under cover of
the night, returned and landed at Dutch Flat,
a few miles below Fort Darling. Under the
leadership of the young and gallant Huncock,
the troops advanced rapidly, and after consider
able fighting, took possession of Chapin's Bluff,
opposite Fort Darling, nine miles from Rich
mond, and extended their front to Fair Oaks,
only six miles from Richmond. This was the
famous battle field with M'Clellan in June,
18C2. Grant's forces here must be quite
strong, to compel the enemy to retire before
them. His object is 6aid to be. to operate
against Fort Darling, and destroy a pontoon
bridge just above it, which the rebels use for
crossing and recrossing the river, in transporting
their troops and materials of war.
While this important advance was made on the
nortli side of the James, a strong force, on the
19th of August, took possession of the W e! don
Railroad at Rains or Reims, about six miles
south of Petersburg. It was a dearly-bought
victory, the rebels having captured 1500 prison
ers, and the killed and wounded amounting to
as many more. But the object was gained, and
the position had been held for four days, and
so strongly entrenched that, it is said, it will
not be easy now to drive Grant's troops from it.
The possession of this place, cuts off direct com
munication by rail with North and South Caro
lina, and opens the way for the Union forces to
advance ou Petersburg by the southwest side.
From this it will be seen that Grant has had
important successes both at his extreme left and
right, compelling Lee to keep strong forces at
three points, over 25 miles apart. He is gradu
ally gaining ground on his adversary, and draw
ing Lee closer and closer into his grip. Unless
Grant can be driven from Chapin's Bluff, he
will soon cross the James River in its vicinity,
which must bring on a general engagement on
the south side, ending, it successful, in the evac
uation of Petersburg, where, notwithstanding
the reports before circulated by the rebels, Beau
regard was still in command up to August 20.
Never, since Grant arrived before Richmond lias
hi prospect looked more hopeful than at the
date of the latest advices. The only tiling that
can check him or turn him back will be the
return of the rebel troops from the Shenandoah
Valley, to fall suddenly on his forces north of
the James, as Stonewall Jackson did on M'Clel
lan, and defeated him in 1S02. By some such
strategy, the rebels may drive him back. But
certain it is that the rebel troops in Petersburg,
Fort Darling and Richmond must be kept in
nearly the position they are, Less they obtain
The movements in the Shenandoah Valley ap
pear to be a sce-saw game, the combatants dodg
inz around among the vallrvs and hills and
through the numerous gaps, like boys playing
tag. Occasionally, we hear of a capture of 500
prisoners or a large train of supplies by one or
the other, but there has been no decisive battle.
Why has not Government foTtiSed and guarded
the fords of the Potomac, of which there are only
four or five? A park of artillery and proper
fortifications on tbe nortli side, guarded by a
thousand troop-s at each ford, would prevent the
sudden passage and check an invasion till suf
ficient forces are concentrated to meet the raiders.
Some such plan could be carried cut, that would
effectually stop these incursions, and shield the
Government from the disgrace which must attach
to such as occurred in July last.
From Mobile, dates are to August 12, up to
which time, being one week after th cap ture of
the forts, nothing important had occurred. Fcrt
Morgan had been invested by land and sea, and
its capitulation was only a question of time. A
portion of Farragut's fleet had approached to
within a few miles of the city, and the Charleston
papers express the opinion that Mobile will be
taken if an attack is made cn it. Admiral Fr.r
ragut is certainly meriting the commendation be
stowed on him by the Russian Admiral, at one of
the banquets in New York a year ago, as the
greatest or most successful naval ofScer living
He is the Nelson of the present war. When le
is through with Mobile, there are still two rebel
ports left for him to operate on.
Sherman was still besieging Atlanta, and hid
made slight advances. Vigorous efforts were beirg
made by the rebels to cut off his communications
with Chattanooga, which may prove successful.
The wonder is how he has so long held them un
interrupted. Looking upon the war picturo in the most fa
vorable light wo can, a slow progress in favor
of the Government is all that can be claimed.
Notwithstanding the numerous levies of soldiers
for the national army, of which there have bt'en
over tico millions called out, there is still a scar
city of men in the field. Grant, instead of 100,
000, should have 200,000 men now in Virginia.
Still there is a gain compared with the situation
three; two or even one year ago, and for that
every loyal American should be thankful. On
this subject of want of soldiers.we find some com
ments in an exchange, which will bear reading :
' Our people bave never yet risen up to the great
ness of the work which was forced upon us by the re
bellion. From tbe first call for 75,000 men and the
prcojise that the rebellion would be put down in
ninety days up to the pre-ent moment, we have uuder
estimated ihe ability, resources, endurance and spirit
of tbe rebellion, and equally overrated our own. In
conseqaence of these fatal misconceptions, we have
been constantly flattering ourselves that this cam
paign would close the war, that this measure or that
measure would be a death-blow to the rebellion, and
thnt the country would soon he restored to union and jn-ace.
Weh-ive miscalculated tl.e difficnltits to be overcome, and now
it is the dictate of patriotism anil humanity to summon the Oov-
l eminent to rise up to the greatness of the occasion and act as
! besorues a people mighty in iu rejxiurcea and engaged in a
! struggle on wl-ich depend? the question of free fuvenmient in
I all the earth. Hefore us there are two and only two roads: one
1 leads to victory and the other to cational disruption and ruin,
i If the road to victory is still open, then hy all me:ns let it le
i taken sjieeUily, for the longer it is delayed the nearer we con.e
! to the ahvss into which the other wiil plunce us. Our firm per-
Puaion is tlm it is in the power of the American people to
brin this war to a close before next winter on terms that will
secure union, and honor, au.l prosperity. Hut the first step to
that restoration U the overthrow of the military power of the
rebellion. To do that work we would instantly call into service
every officer now idle, everv soldier now absent from his post.
! we nould fil! up the depleted regiments and form new ones by
draft, and by sending h new army of a hundred thousand men
Wider a tried una trusted general to the relief of Grant, we
1 would scatter the force' ft" L'e. and then, through Eastern Ton
! nesee, we would o;-r-iU- upon the Southern Stales still hold. tiff
i out iu rebellion."
I It will be observed that the rt-bels have con
' sented to reeegnize ri(ro sohliirs as prisoners of
I war, and ordered their exchange for their prison
i ers in the hands of the Government. What a
: change this is for the haughty Southron. Ten
years ago the idea of a negro being recognized
i on a par with his white brother, would have
t fbeen scouted at the North as well as at the
j. South. Now the South consents to give up one
: chattel black man for one u-hite man. Verily the
, world is moving on. A military necessity, it
may be, but none the less a fact. And the same
military necessity' may yet compel the rebel
