y, SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 26.
k In an item in our lust is-ue, we referred to
an effort then b.-ing made in the Legislature
to repeal the prohibitory l.'quor law, which has
been in existence for fourteen years. . The tie
bate on ic took place on Saturday. The old
law of ISoO L contained in Chapter 42 of the
Penal Cude, and id aa follows :
1. Whoever shall sell, ffire, purchase, cr procure for, and In
behalf of any native of this kingdom, or for his ue, any npirilu
oai liquor, or c tber intoxicating drink or tubstance. ahall
pur'.rhcl ly a Cne not txccolin two hundred dollars ; and in
default cf the payment of such Cne, ty iinpriaontnent at hard
labor for a tr-nn not exci-'diug two years.
2. Whoever lt.ll mauuf'tur, Vjt Kulu aoy intatoAtui0 lrlnU
r a-iarice in tliis kingdom, shall be liaole to a Sue of five
hu-Xrcd dollars ; and i: cefuult of payioent of eaid tine, shall
be iirj rif i:ej at hard Iaor uot excJi:ig two year.
3. If ar.y victuallir. housu keeper, shop keeper, or keeper of
a t?pn!tng hnue, not duly licensed to sell apiritjnus Hqu r.i.
'hail or furnish any oth?r p-rson than those d esc rilled ia j
tbe Hrst section ol this cbapner, with any spirituous liquor or
other iutoxicalir.g drink or imbalance, he bi.all b- punished Ly a
fine not exc.-ed.ng two hundred dollars and in default of pay
xcent of surh Ear, by injprw.mnient at h rd labor for a ttru
tot excelling two y-.-ars.
The bill to repeal the 1st section of the above
law, which makes it a penal offence to ecll liquor
to Hawaiian, was introduced by Mr. Kauwahi,
and sustained in the debate by Messrs. Rhodes
and Wyllia of Honolulu, Kauwahi of Muui,
and Soloniona of Molokai ; and opposed by
Mers. de Varigny, Harris, Gov. Xahaolelua of
Maui, and Kaapa of Hilo. The advocates of
the bill contended that the removal of the pro-
,-.- 11 . . . .
hibition would increase the revenue without in
creasing intemperance, which they deprecated
aa well as their opponents ; that the natives now
found the means of gratifying their doeires for
drink in an illegal manner, which the repeal
of this law would put a etop to; that prohibi
tion and high duties were always found to ag-
- . - - . 1 . x I I . t
fiie inaieau ot uuugaung tno evns againM
which they were aimed; that it was unjust to
native II twaiians as placing them uju an un-
eri'ial footing with foreigners, giving to the lat
ter a riht withheld from the former; that
where prohibitory laws were enacted they should
bo made to apply equally to all ; and that it
was oppressive to n-btrain by law a natural right
which God had given to all.
The opponents of the bill contended that gov
ernments had a right to pass 6uch laws in gen
eral as the public good demanded, which was
sustained by various illustrations ; that a Ha
waiian Legislature enacted this law because it
deemed the public good to require it ; that it
had been sustained by every subsequent Legis
lature to the present time ; that the chiefs under
the old regime had enacted and enforced this
law, under Kaahumanu I. and -II., Kalaimoku
and Kamehaineha III., until the Legislature, in
the time of the latter, passed it in its present
form, to which every successive Legislature has
continued to adhere, and that the unrestricted
uso of ardent spirits by the aborigines of the
United States had been tha most effectual agent
in sweeping them away till but few of that
numerous and brave race remained ; that al-
; though the Hawaiian race was diminishing, the
unrestricted use of spirits would add fuel to the
fire, and hasten that decrease with accelerate!
j epced ; that the plantations would feel its in-
fluence at once ; that it would affect their labor
i and industrial pursuits generally, and greatly
depreciate the value of property.
Mr. de Varigny pointed to Tahiti as affording
an example, where a fair experiment has been
m3je of both system. The French protectorate
for years allowed the unrestricted sale of liquors
to the natives ; but after witnessing the misery,
poverty, disease and death, which it entailed on
the people, it has now, for the past two or three
years, strictly forbidden its sale. And with the
proZiHutiOn, habit or industry and thritt, with
an increase of population, are the results chroai-
clei. What more forcible areument could be
brought forward to uppor: our existing law,
than the fair and impartial trial made in Tahiti.
' The Governor ot Maui said that if people only
drank temperately, tho law would not bo needed ;
but th Iir wh" pad t." retrain intrapranr
jilrt-aJj esisting, ani that cf irits were uot like
t water v. hich when a mau drank, his thirst was
quenched, and his desire ceased ; but one, two or
three glas.-9 did .not satisfy, but onlj increased
dire til' inebriation ensued.
It was a sad spectacle to eeo the Minister of
Foreign Affairs. Mr. Wjllie, etaud up and sup
port the passage of the bill a man who baa
bad twenty jears' experience among this peo
jle, who has witnessed their decrease from 120,
000 to 60,000, apologizing for a measure that
would deal death and destruction to this fast
djing race. The sight appears more singular,
when we learn that his colleagues were unani
mously opposed to hira in the repeal of the
prohibition, and that the law, if passed, would
Lava been vetoed by Ilis Majesty the King. It
is true his support of the measure was quali
ty. with an ' if," a very important one in
this instance ' if it should receive the sanction
of "tLeNobles and Representatives."- Among
other reasons why His Excellency thought well
of the measure, was this, that though Lis labor
ers on the I'rinceville plantation had access to
intoxicating drinks, he had never seen one diunk
there- ret!, WLe the Attorney-General asked
if the honse was to understand that liquor was
manufactured on the estate and supplied to
them, a denial. was made; but it cannot be de
nied that there is a rum bole about two miles
distant from Trinceville estate, which is a source
of constant annoyance to the Tillage of Hanalei ;
and if Ilis Excellency knew as much of hi
estate as some others do, he would know of fre
quent cases of drunkenness.
The position taken by the Minister of Foreign
L Affairs on this question is another convincing

discussion lasted for two or three hours.
and when the question was put to vote, the bill
to repeal the prohibitory liquor law was lost by
a vote of 11 to 26. -

Some two mouths ago, at a social gathering
of ladies in this city, while discussing the noble
?fforts of the ladies in America to lessen the
miseries of the civil war, it was suggested that
something might be done here for the same ob
ject. No sooner said than done, and a paper
was beaded for funds to aid the 'U. S. Christian
Commission," a few dollars pledged, and a so
ciety formed, called the Ladies Hawaiian
Christian Commission." No one of the twelve
ladies present dreamed that more than a few
hundred dollars ut most could bo collected; but
with that zeal for which American women are
known the world over, they set to work.audafttr
collecting between one and two hundred dollars
for membership fees, and a hundred more from
donations, it wa? decided to hold a fair to in
crease the funds to perhaps a thousand dollars.
After two or three weeks preparation, the fair
was held, and what it was we need not hero
repeat ; for everybody was there, and everybody
enjoyed it, and went home pleased. It was
followed on the next evening, with an enter
tainment of music and tableaux. The receipts
from the fair amounted to 17CG ; and tho.-e
from the entertainment, 285.
From the other islands, generous responses
were received, among them $70 from Hilo, 30
from Kona, $G0 from Makawao, 100 from
Ulupalakua, 42 from. Wailuku, 23 from
Kohala, 17 from Waimea, Hawaii, 17 from
Koloa, 10 from Hannlei, and so on, show
ing the interest and sympathy existing there
for the cause. The sums raised have not
all lw?en received vet, but enough to secure a
draft (including the premium on gold) for
$5,500, which will be remitted by the bark
Whistler to G:io. II. Stuart, Esq., President of .'j
tho Christian Counnietiuii in Philadelphia. I

All honor to the ladie' of the Sandwich Ishmds
for their efforts in this cause nt the more
gift, but the sympathy the loyal patriotic
sympathy existing here for their country and
her cause, in the hour of her trial. When
America has such daughters scattered hoyond
her borders, in distant lands, she need fear no j
rebellions or treasons at home.
As we have stated before, the funds of the
Christian Commission are devoted to supplying
the necessities of soldiers and sailors in actual
warfare, taking caro of tho eick and wounded
on the battlefield, and giving a christian burial
to the dead. Its great object is, to alleviate
the sufferings of war. .
The report of the treasurer will be published
as soon as the donations raised on tho other
islands are received, probably in our next issue.
Bees. We notice in one of ur foreign periodicals,
a curious instance of a ooaog in the habits of these
insects, when transferred to a warm climate, the
more remarkable, as nothing of the kind has ever
been observed at these island?, where bees have been
domesticated for some ten or more years. The fol
lowing is the item referred to :
The most curi U9 ir.star.ee of a chance of instinct is mention
e l hy Oarwin. The tves carried to H.-irbadi-ie and the Western
Inlands ceased to lay up honey after the firt year. They found
the' weather eo fine, acd thu matt-riils fjr honey so plentiful
that thry quitted their frrave, mercantile character, became ex
ceedingly profligate and debauched, ate up their capital, and
res. Ived to work no more, ani aramed ti-?ms;lve ly fiykis
about the ?ugar-houe3 and stiiiftiug the u gnx'S.
Bees are now quite abundant on all the islands of
this group, bat we have never beard cf their losing
their inJustrious habits, and everywhere they work
with equal vigor through the winter as in summer,
and without any apparent cessation for years. May
not the bees, noticed by Parwin, have become izild,
and, building tbeir nests in the cane fields or s'Jgar
houiKS, have attacked the negroes only when the lat
ter disturbed them, as frequently occurs with the
laborers in meadows and wheat fields at heme ?
Z37 Tbo bark Eldridge went cut la fine trim on
Wednesday afternoon, full of freight and passengers.
A freh f:uth wind has been blowing steadily 9ir.ee,
and we bepe to bear of her arrival over by the 6th
prox. 12 days f-om Honolulu.

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Thanksgiving Day is IIoxolclu. Agreeably
with notice gtTen io our issue of the 12ih, Thursday
last was observed by Americans here, as the Ameri
can National Thanksgiving. Many of the stores were
clcseJ, and baiuess suspenJei- The sermon of the
Rer. Dr. Gulick. at the Fort Street Church, was an
out-and-out, straight-forward Union discourse, worthy
of the occasion. The audience was large, and the
singing excellent. Eyes unused to weep could not
refrain from the compliment of a tear as the preacher
portrayed ia glowing periods the prospects of the
Union cause. Some of the illustrations were most apt
and telling. The reference to our Saviour's casting
oat the evil spirit, and illustrating "by the same the
putting dowa of the rebellion, was one of the happiest
of Bible references. Some thought the man dead, out
of whom the evil spirit had been cast. Some said he
was dead ! So, some said the Union, was dead., and
rent beyond all recovery ! Bat is the Union dead ?
The Reverend Speaker very appropriately discussed
some of the good results which would, follow the pre
secution of this war, showing that, politically and
morally, the nation would come forth purified and
regenerated. He paid a touching tribute to the pa-
i i e l or - f tt cj ?
referring to the fact that when the Rebellion broke
out, and treason was found among Cabinet Officers.
Senators, Representatives, Ministers of the Gospel,
and almost every cta?s of citizens, including Army
and Naval OfScers, not a traitor was found among
Uncle Sam's web-footed boys ! The speaker's allu
sion to President Lineolff, the noble soldiers, and
several other topics, were exceedingly touching and
to the point. Vie would make a fuller report of the
discourse, but we hope to see it in print, when our
readers will be able to read it for themselves.
..Madam Pele okttisq Restless. We are permit
ted to extract the following from a letter from Mr.
jCoan, dated November 10 : A new lake has opeueJ
in the crater of Kiluuea, under the precipice where
travelers used to build their anti-civilization huts.
Last eveniog I walked three quarters of a mile to get
a good view of it. It is a mile J. W. of the old
lake, boiis well, and has three satellites around it-
j Eight fins are now Been in the crattr iu the night
j The rid late is very active, and that part of the
j crater (around the lake) is swelling up, so that the
j lusion is breakio g out in points nearer to the houses."
! As Dear as we ccn judge from the locality
i iveu, the new lake" is near where the lava burst
out in June, 1SC3, when the stream rau so as to cress
the path which travelers follow in going to the old
lake. - It. is now some years (January, 185!) since
the last eruption on Mauua Loa, and as they have
heretofore occuired every four or five years on an
average, it is not unreasonable to look fur another
duritig the preseut winter, especially if the fail cf
rain ou Hawaii is abundant.
Next News. It is useless to speculate what
the next news will be, bat 'is ever one is auxious to
know what it may be, there can be no harm in gues
sing. If our foreign date are to the 12th, of course
they will advise us of the electiou of a new Presi-
. J .
dent a very important matter as political affairs
etaud now in the United States. Of course Lincoln
has been elected, by what majority depends nltogeth-
' .i . . - r . i. . l : . .i i j
tr ou iue exieui ui mi tym iu mc cupperneau rauss,
which at last advices appeared to be very serious.
The war news of Nov. 10 will probably report the
evacuation of Petersburg, to be followed by a concen
tration of Grant's army round Richmond, and a
siege of that city. As for gold, those beat posted say
it has risen, but to what figure, we cau't learn
I somewhere above 1140. Wait a little and see.
r We are indebted to Capt. Prendergast for a
sample of Rice, cleaned at his rice mill, where as
handsome rice is turned out.: as ever came from
Carolina or iny other place. It is a f peciuien fit for
he table t f the Emperor of all the Rufsias. Natives
are cultivating more of this article than formerly,
and we hope Capt. P.'a facilities will be such that he
can clean every round raised, that cone may be
shipped abroad as padJy. All the labor required to
make our staples tnarkciablc, should be performed
here, and all the profit derived from them should be
retained in the country. This is the only way to
secure our prosperity.
Kona Sugar Caxe. Mr. John Cavanigh has
shown us several stalks ot" cane rait-ed ia llona,
Hawaii, which thow that it will grow ns stout and
large there as iu any other district of our favored is
lands We learn that two small sugar mills are in
process of erection iu that district, one by Mr. Paul i
Emmert aud the other by Mr. C. F. Hart, each of
whom his a field of cane that will be rea3y to harvest
as soon as the mills are completed. Success to sugar
anu'acture iu Kona.
Auction Sale. Our readers will not fail to ob
serve the notice of the sale of J. JE. Barnard's proper
ty on Tueslxy next. It comprises a flue dwelling
house, with over 8 acres of land, covered with fruit
trees, vines, &c. There are no private dweUingrem
iscs around Honolulu cn which so much moey and
i Leison.il labor has been expended as these, and to one
who ba9 a taste for garieniDg an(J horticulture, this
ofrer8 a TtirQ opportunity for good iuvesmcnt.
Caterpillars Lave begun to make their annual
appearance, covering the ground in some places so
thick, that a person cannot tread without stepping
on them. They are extremely an toyiDg to cultiva
tors, requiring them to plant and replant, often three
or four times in succession. Any one who cau dis
cover a 6imple and cheap antidote to the caterpillar
plague, will be a public benefactor.
S?" Until the present Kona storm set in, we
thought the Onward would be due to-dny, tut with
the change of wind and weather, we are thrown out
of our reckoning, and her arrival is rather uncertain.
SLe is probably two weeks out to-day, fcaving left
San Francisco t n the 12th. It is fifteen days since
our last advices were received, by the JVhistUr, cn
the Hth inst.

When n officer of the 'government of the Revolu
tion, the first Napoleon bad been ordered out to dis
perse a body of rioters. Having drawn up his sol
diers and some guns across the street, he waited their
advance. Tuey at length appeared, sweeping down
cn him and his party like a roaricg torrent. The
artillerymen, with their port-fires, stood ready at his
signal to pour showers of rap into the body of the
mob. Unwilling to shed blood, he stepped out from
bis men to reason with the suffering and misguided,
people, and soon found himself visit' vu with their
bead, a virago of a woman, whoe appearancepre
sented a remarkable contrast to hi" own. She wai
of great size, and enormously fat ; white he, always
very little, was at that time so thin, as well as small,
that he was known by the soulriqutt of ' La- Ptfit
Corporal." He romonstated with the lady ; but
she replied with volleys of abuse, telling him that
while she and othtr honest bard-working people were
starving, such idle fellows as be and his soldiers were
fattening on the best cf the land. With that eagle
eye and remarkab'e promptitude which afterward
turned the fate of many a battle-field. Napoleon saw
-at once the weak point of his adversary's position.
He paused till she was out of breath.- Tben taking
off bis hat, be bowed to the mob ; and, placing bis
own tbin figure beside that of bis fat opponent, be
asked them to say whether the good lady or be locked
most like starving ? As happens in more respectable
assemblies than mcbs, and elsewhere than in witty
France, a good-humored joke won the day ; and the
people, for the time at least, quietly dispersed.
