SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1.
An idle, quiet wek the paat ono Las been, not
withstanding several arrivala frota the Coast and
elsewhere, and that of the firet whaler" from
the North. Quarter day " will doubtless close
up the dull season, and the usual bustle and ac
tivity will set in with October 1st. How the
months aDd quarters glide by ! Almost before
the last butchers and grocers' bills are paid and
filed away, new ones are politely handed in, re
minding us that we still live," and must cat
and driik whether contentment follows or not.
Xews from the Arctic has arrived meagre and
poor, to be sure but "good news always travels
slowly," and is generally distanced by the stale.
Too often, " lame ducks" are the messengers that
herald the incoming of the flock. Small favors
are thankfully received, and if we cannot publish
to-day the list of full ships and report plenty
of whales," we can easily fancy them for half
the news and gossip current throughout the world
is made up of " fancy sketches." Besides we re
member that in former seasons, poor reports have
generally preceded good ones, and that whale3
are seldom raised except by a sharp lookout at
the mast-head. Our report in another column
should, therefore, be digested as a 4,fancy sketch"
in keeping with the usual first reports.
There was an election on Thursday last for
members to what has been called a Legislative
Assembly, but what may be more properly termed
a 44 Drumhead Legislature." There were 2C2
"votes cast on the occasion, which is two hundred
more than was expected, even by ihe most ardent
ministerial enthusiasts. Six foreign votes (or
vot of foreigners not connected with the (lov
ernment) were said to be cast among them. Of
the 252 voters, about 1C9 were soldiers, 75 to 160
government officers, their attaches and adherents,
leaving from CO to 85 names which may be taken
as independent voters. Ono can readily perceive
that the Ministry have the full swing, and have
of course elected their candidates. Black
G'corge" had the honor of three votes. It is said
that if any kind friend had helped him to get
printed ballots, he would have swept the course.
No one doubts it.
The public will be surprised at Mr. Castle's
lending himself to be a tool of a Ministry which
has proved a disgrace to the country. No one
will envy the honor of an election by such a con
stituency as polled their votes on Thursday. Mr.
Castle is not the representative of any foreign in
terests or any independent class of natives, but
of the minions of the Ministry. In accepting the
place, he etoops from the high position he has
held to become the apologist of a Ministry, whoso
every act has been to strangle freedom and make
the Ilawaiians slaves. If there Is a spark of the
true American blood in his veins, he will spurn
the proffered bribe, in the language of the Scot
tish Knight :
Nor will I barter Freedom's cause,
For England's. wealth or Home's applause."
Let Black George " occupy the scat, for he
would carry honor to it, and would never bow
down and kiss the feet of Ministers that seek to
tread upon his neck.
Even were the lata election and the coming
Assembly in every respect legal, which many
question, Mr. Castle's seat in the Privy Council
renders him totally unfit to represent the popular
interests. He is & government man, and can only
take a ministerial view of politics. The barren
honor of a privy councillor has completely
changed his views of men and things, and the
present degradation to a seat m the Assembly,
should he retain it, will destroy public confidence
The Onward brings us a email batch of foreign
news, including telegraphic dates from Washing
ton to September 6. Nothing very; startling has
occurred during the three days reported 6ince the
previous mail. The official reports of Generals
Sherman and Hood confirming the capture of At
lanta, are given, leaving no room to question the j
victory. The following extract from a letter
written by one of the officers of Sherman's army
was dated just before the fall of Atlanta, but in
dicates that Sherman docs not mean to rest idle
General Sherman has gathered together all of his
mighty hosts for a weighty blow, and, as these dij
pofeitiuns promise, it will not be long in making
known its effects. He is not the commander to allow
an enemy to recover from an exhaustive battle, while
he sits tamely by iu quiet. He knows full well the
great advantage now olfered him, and no man is ever
more prompt in improving such advantages. His
armies are in the best of spirits; his troops confident,
and in the few days to come great and glorious suc
cesses will be cars. It is useless to speculate or to
promise of success, for ere this reaches the public.
the telegraph will have given the results. Of one
thing, however, the people may rest assured, and
that is, that this campaign is not yet ended. The
object is not the possession of Atlanta, but the de
struction of the rebel army defending it, and that
til be accomplished before this army spreads itj
tents over the?e bills and plains for rest or ouiet.
This part of the rebel Government i tottering, and
it is Lot the intention to rive its defenders time or
opportunity to prep its weakened frame or gather
new material for additional aid. The blows roust fall
on the armies while the are weak, and these will not
be few or long spared. When Hood, with his already
thicneJ ranks, has been thoroughly beaten; when
his army bears no organizition; when his t roots are
scattered and disheartened; when the hospitals of the
Sooth are fil'.ed with those who will not yield so lonz
as health or limbs are left them, then this army will
settle into qciet, then this campaign will have ended,
and our work 6niiheJ
Another late paper gives some particulars from
Gen. Grant, which will -bo worth insertion and
Ex-Governor Ranej, United States Senator from
Minnesota, passed through rfcis city (says tbe Chici-
go Journal,) en route for home, having, since the
adjournment of Congress been on a viait to the army
before Petersburg. He gives a very enconreging ac
count of tbe situation and the propect9. He visited
our entire lines, and without exception found the
officers and men full of hope and coafiJence. They
feel sure that their present campaign will result not
only in the capture of Petersburg and Richmond,
but, what is more important, in the destruction of
Lee's army, which is the main objecf cf present
operations. Everything appears satisfactory in our
position near Petersburg, and tbe army is not idle.
At present, sapping and tiiiuing are tho order of the I
day, a la Vicksburg. i
Governor Ramsey bad conversations with General '
Grant, who told him to request the people of the '
7orth to possess their souls with patieuce" that
all will come out right that Lis success ia bevond .j
doubt that bis grand plan has been successfully
carried out so far, and is certain to be buccesaful in
the end. General Grant bas never felt greater con
fi ieoee of succen? than be feels now. IJut it i a
I stupendous work he has before him, and the people
J must not be unreasonable in their anticipations; they
! must not expect that to be done in a week which can
not be done in a month ; for if they will have patience,
j they will in due time be fully repaid for the exercise
I of that virtue, by the splendid success that will crown
j the efforts of the Army of the Totomac to overwhelm
: the chief army of the rebellion. The destruction of
Lee's army will be almost equal to the suppression oi
the rebellion. The people, therefore, can afford to

present apparent inactivity for it id more apparent

Ma. Editob : Can you find space in the columns
cf the Advertiser for the enclosed poem taken from
an old newspaper? It is not a stranger to our Ha
waiian literature, as it was several years ago se
lected by and published in the then " government
organ," at tbe request of an ancient " Pub. Func."
of this government, hut whether he will now ac"
; knowledge bis bantling, when times like these are so
plainly bhowing that what was then supposed to be
purely an American passion, may find favor in other
latitudes and lands, (not to say islands) remains to
be seen. If what Dame Rumor asserts in regard to
the designs cf certain Reformers towards the Stone
Church be true, it seems to me that this significant
little waif may be reproduced with appropriateness,
although lacking the august patronage which it en
joyed on its first appearance.
Some of the terms will of course have to be changed
by the reader to meet the new relations of the case;
and then, too, no one supposes that such vulgarly
carnal weapons" as six shooters and bowie knives
will be used by these gentlemen: oh no, are not these
the ministers of reconciliation ?" And why should
they i Is not this a land of law ? And with such
eminent legal talent as has been consecrated and con
firmed to their service may we not be sure that all
the obligations of law will be sacredly observed ?
And when by proper purgations and consecrations
the sw ices-flesh abomination of American protestant
ism has been removed from that goodly temple, and
all the obligations of the (new) gospel met and ful
filled by a sprinkling of holy water, shall we not all
be able to see that filibustering is after all a very
amiable thing, if only you have the right kind of men
engaged in it, and just enough of divine right"
tossed into the trembling balance to turn it in the
right direction ? And will not our friend (kanaka)
Cobb, inBtesd of grinding bis teeth, look on with de
light and exolaim, ,moiai.
Fillibualrriiiff The Ethica of it.
Says Captain Robb to farmer Cobb,
Your farm is very fine, sir,
Come, give me op the title deeds,
I claim the farm as mine, sir."
Says Cobb, 44 Pray, how can that be so,
I'm sure I never sold it,
'Twas left me by my father, sir,
only ought to hold it.4'
Says Robb, 4 the march of destiny
'TIs strange you don't pereive It
Is sure to make it mine some day,
I solemnly believe It."
But have you not already got
More land thiin you can till, sir,
More rocks than you can ever blast,
More woods than you can kill, sir."
Aye, Cobb, but something whispers me,
A sort of inspiration.
That I've a right to tvery farm,
Not under cultivation ;
I'm of the Anglo Saxon race,
A people known to fame, sir,
But you, what right have you to land,
Who ever heard your name, sir."
41 1 derm you, Cobb, a laxy lout,
Toor, trodden-down and blicd, sir,
And if I take your useless land.
You ought to think It kind, sir;
And with my scientific skill,
I set it down as true, sir,
That I can gather from the farm,
Full twice as much as you, sir.
To be explicit, 'tis an age
Of freedom and progression.
No longer dog-in-manger like,
Can you retain possession.
The farm you long since forfeited,
Because you failed to till it,
To me it clearly now bel'.ng--,
Simply btcause I will it.
My logic if you disapprove.
Or fail of comprehending,
Or do not feel convinced that I
Your welfare am intending,
I've plenty more of arguments
To which I can resort, sir,
Six-shooters, rifles, bowie-knives,
Will indicate the sort, sir.
So pr'y'thee, Cobb, take my advic.
Make over your domain, sir,
Or, sure as I am Captain Kobb,
Will I blow out your brains, sir."
l'oor Cobb can only grind his teeth,
And grumble protestations,
That might should be the rule of right.
Among enlightened nations.
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Political Cabtoons and How to Improve tiiem.
In Mr. Flitner's store, are to be seen two carica
tures of Politics and Politicians in Americi. The
first represents the burial of the Constitution, Secre
tary Stanton driving the hearse, which t -draw a by
noted Generals, Henry Ward Beecher preceding the
hearse as chaplain, while Greely and Sumner are let
ting the Constitution coffin down into a dark hole, the
President and members of his Cabinet standing
around as mourners. If there was any truth in the
subject caricatured, it would be rich. With a very
slight change in the portraits of the principal charac
ters, it could be made to fit our Hawaiian politic.!
with ten times more appropriateness. For instance,
C. C. H." might be seated on the hearse, driving
tho ministerial team, my Lord Bishop in fall
canonicals reading the service, assisted by " L. B.
as clerk, tbe " honorable member from Hamakua"
and a certain officious foreign representative,
holding the ropes of the coffin, with various inter
ested politicians standing cround, whom the specta
tor can easily imagine and fill in according to his
taste, and we have tbe Burial of the Hawaiian
Constitution" to tbe life. Such a cartoon would
take. The American Constitution ha never
been destroyed cr l.uried the Hawaiian has.

been received, which are fur sale at the store of

A As Artit. Among the passengers by the Comet
last week, was Mr. E. W. Perry, Jr., a portrait and
landscape painter. A specimen of his work can be
seen in tbe bookstore being a portrait cf Rev. Mr.
Corwin. A glance at the picture is sufficient to sat.
isfy any one that it is a perfect copy of the original,
and that the person who executed it, has the skill cf
a true artist. Mr. Perry visits our islands to take
views and paintings af our principal landscape scen
ery, and starts for Kihuea on Monday next in the
steamer, via Kealakekua and Kau. intending to
sketch the crater, Hilo and other scenery of that is
land worthy of being copied. YVe commend him to
the attention of cur friends wherever he may visit.
While travelling through California, Mr. Perry was
in company with Messrs. Williams and BiersUdt.
The former will arrive here shortly. The latter hav
ing sold his fine painting of Yosemite Falls and Val
ley to a .New York publishing house for 815,000, has
gone East on business connected with the same. It
was the intentiou of the three artists to visit our
group in company. Messrs. Perry and Williams will
undoubtedly succeed iu taking some views that will
be very valuable. Now while they are here, let us
suggest that the Government secure their services to
paint correct full-size portraits of the late King and
His Majesty the present King, a-? also, perhaps.
Queen Emma and Gov. Kckuanaoa, to be preserved
as national property to adorn the Palace. It is bo
seldom genuine artists visit tbe islands that this op
portunity should not be lost.
? Deep Divixo One day last week, while the water
boat was engaged in supplying the clipper ship Fleit
wing, which was anchored in the roads, the boat
sunk alongside the ship in eighteen fathoms of water.
Tbe services of an old experienced native diver were
engaged for S50, who went down and succeeded in
fastening tackle on to the boat, by which she was j
successfully brought to the surface and floated. This j
is the second or third time this craft has sunk in j
nearly the same locality. Just think of a person j
diving down 108 feet, without armor oPauy kind but j
such as nature provides, and remaining down several j
minutes or long enough to fasten ropes and chains j
around the boat. When he came up, blood spouted j
from his ears, which is said to be a good sign, as i
when that occurs ill effects seldom follow the diving. I
. This water-boat, by the bye, is really a serviceable :
craft, and if lost or destroyed, the shipping would j
be greatly inconvenienced by it. j
Chabactebistic. On Sunday last there was an i
arrival of a fine large clipper from San Francisco, j
which had made a short passage for the season. ;
Everybody was on the qui vive for the news, and the !
wharves were covered with anxious inquirers. But
the ship brought not so much as a single paper. On ;
being asked if there was any news from the war, the j
only reply our reporter received from the Captain J
was that " there was a devil of a row in the United !
States, but he didn't learn the particulars." That
man ought to have command of tbe Great Eastern.'
The Rev. L. Smith a " D.D." We copy from a
late "New York Observer the following paragraph,
showing that one of our Honolulu pastors has been
honcred with a Doctorate, from his Alma Mater,
Williams College :
The Trustees conferred the degree of Doctor of
Divinity upon two of our class : tbe Rev. Simeon
Howard Calhoun, of Abieb, Syria, and the Rev.
Lowell Smith, of Honolulu, Sandwich Islands. In
announcing these degrees. President Hopkins desig
nated the men as viros apostolicos, Christi et ec

concert this evening at Nuuanu Hall, corner of King i
and Nuuana Streets, assisted by amateurs. Now
everybody knows that we don't have a superabun- 1
dance of fun and humor here in our staid town, and !
when an actor does happen along, he ought to he j
patronized, not for his sake so much as our own. j
Read the programme and then go and see for ,
SF" The Fair of the Mechanics Institute was being j
holden in San Francisso at the date of our last ad- 1
vices from that port. By tho following from tbe j
Bulletin, it would appear that our Islands were rep
' Articles From the SAsowicn Isi.asds. The fame of the :
Fair extended in advance to the Sandwich Islands, whence sev
eral articles have been received. Charles W. Brooks & Co., of '
this city, enterfd the following: Pnjrar and coffee, from Met- j
calf's -plantation ; pulu, from J. Worth, of Hawaii ; tapioca, j
from Hollister & Sons, of Koloa, Kauai.
Small-Pox The whaleship which arrived on
Thursday from the Arctic reports that the small-pox
was in tbe whaling fleet, and that three vessels had
it. It may spread to others before they leave that
ground. The ships reported with it are the Camilla,
i Abigail and Jit eh Swift. Our authorities should be
on the guard nnd take measures to check the spread
of the disease should it be brought here, as it is likely
to be. A large portion of tbe children are still ex
posed to it. "
A number of vessels were to leave San Fran
cisco in September, to touch at Honolulu. Among
them nre the following :
Ham. hark Lorenz Meyer, to sail Sept. 10 to 12th.
Ship Daniel Marcy, " ' 20 to 2o:h.
Rark A One, " 30th.
The bark Voting Hector had not arrived up to the
9th, 15 days out from Honolulu. She would proba
bly leave about the 2oth of September.
At Wilcox, Richards & Co's. can be seen a
chart, showing the rise and fluctuations in the price
of ' gold in Xew York since the opening of the war.
It reminds one of the charts published to illustrate
the soundings or bottom of the Atlantic. The sudden
changes in some places make terribly steep peaks,
from whose summits many a gold speculator has
tumbled and broken all his hopes.
3r" The New York If cri gives the list of over
one thousand American vessels sold to go under for
eign flags daring the year 1863. This of course
makes a large decrease in the aggregate tonnage, but
it is safe to say that in less than five years after the
war shall have ended, the entire loss will be supplied
by new vessels.

and will be found an unusually interesting number.
