His death is an event which demands more than a passing
fiotUre. One of the most promising young men of the nation
tias just been cut off in the morning cf life. Young as he was,
ia literary and scientific attainments he had no equal among
bis countrymen. His high aims, his indefatigable industry,
aod his fine natural powers, Vll fitted bim to he a leader among
t.s people, while hi noble and generous disposition with his
modest and gentlemanly bearing endeared him to many friends,
whose hopes, alas ! are buried 10 aa early grave.
He entered the liojal Jkhool ia the winter of 157, barely
able to read a little Kngluh. There he remained for more than
five years, and daring that time be gained such a mastery f
the Krglish language as I have never koown to he equalled by
any Hawaiian, excepting his late Majesty. It was there that
his intellect was awakened, and to the severe and arvurste
habits cf study, ia whi.-h he was trained by the honored Prin
cipal of that school, he ascnotd all his after success as a
student. About three years ago he entered Oahu CoKcge,
where he immediately took a high rank as a scholar, and
when h.a health failed him, a few mouths since, be was primus
The acquisition of know ledge was t him a delight, and his
habits of thorough analysis enabled him to master every sub
ject which betook np. Nor did he generally cotifice birue!f
to oo text book, bat sought fuller information from works of
reference oo the same subject, lie ha 1 road a fair beginning
io Latio, having read ie of Cicero's orations before his last
aickoe, asii showed more than ordinary aptitude f.r Latin
composition. Besides he read French w;th great facihty, and
Lad commenced the study of Spanish. In mathematics he bad
gite over the whole course rvquir-d in New Kogtand colleges,
aod was c-ng-iged in the study of the Differential and Iutegral
Calculus. He L.ol a th riugh knowle.tgc of the ordinary

Low much human progrets owed to the eculiar

how, iu the midst of an unparalleled civil war,
labor was never better rewarded, private enter
prise never more active, and all the elements of
Mrength and prosperity never more fully de
veloped than during those four yoars. It will
point to an effective army oi two millions of
freemen, armed, drilled and put into the field,
with all the equipment of military f kill and
modern science, improvised from raw citizens ;
a navy, built up from a neglected nucleus of a
few chips, to a powerful fleet of over six hundred
of the fleeteet, ablest manned, and best armed

ever taied the ingenuity of man triumphantly
solved, and the public credit created and forever

The war id at an end. The Secretary of War
announces that 50,000 soldiers will be at once
disbanded. Stanton, often calumniated, and
sometimes misunderstood, waa Father Abraham's
choice, and the sagacity which seldom erred waa
exemplified in his appointment and continuance
in office. A nalutary caution is used in return
ing upon the country the supply of labor which
Is repreiented in the men now under arms in
the Government service. Were the whole army
at once disbanded, and the War Department
placed upon a eace footing, the effect would be
revolutionizing upon manufactures, trade and
commerce, and in the result disastrous. The
tiu-k before American Statesmen is unquestion
ably a i-evere one, that of pacifieating and gov
erning their immense territory, while at the same
j time properly regulating and enforcing their
j foreign policy. It is truly providential that
j Seward escar-ed the hand of the asuassin. His is

j we opine that the trouble will be to fcavo the
prominent reteld from the vengeance of those
whom they so cruelly deluded and cheated into
secesfcioii. Jeff. Davis and men of his stamp may
well be anxious to get to Cuba or elsewhere.
Henceforth American foil must be purified from
the presence of such deep-dyed traitors, for the
blood of slaughtered thousands would cry to
Heaven for retribution were any leniency shown
them. For the sake of example to unborn gen-
I trations, treason must be terribly branded, and
Andrew Johnson and Lafayette Foster ore the
right men in the right places.
SOTUS OF THE WKEK.
Thb Passage or thk Dbeadkaccht." Through
the kindness of the Collector-General, W. F. Allen,
Esq , we have been favored with a copy of the log of
the American clipper ship Dreadnaught, on her late
passage to New Bedford from this port. It was pre
pared by Charles L. Fiocke, Esq , who went as past
eenger in her, and from it we make the following
memoranda: The ship sailed from here on the 17th
of December, early in the morning, with very light
winds, and on the 18th, by observation at noon, was
distant 170 miles from port. On the 25th of Decem
ber crossed the equator, iD Ion. 157 24, io 8 days.
On the 27th of January was off Cape Horn, in S3
days from the line and 41 days from port. From the
2l'd of January to the 27th. inclusive, she made tbe
following days' runs : 192. 243. 244, 264, 266 and
200 miles; and from the 2Sth of January to the 2d
of February, inclusive, 242, 254, 232, 271, 245 and
215 miles. On the 20th of February she crossed the
equator again, in 24 days from Capo Horn and 65
days from port. On the 11th of March made Point
Judith, and anchored in New Bedford Bay in 19
days from the line, 43 days from Cape Horn and S4
days from Honolulu, having sailed 12,570 miles.
The greatest run for 24 hours was 272 miles.
J)ay of Hc.miliation and Prateh. By the ad
vertisement of the Minister Resident, in to-day's
paper, it will be seen that President Johnson has
appointed Thursday, June 1st, as a day of humilia
tion and prayer. There seems to be an admirable
fitness in the appointment of such a day. The na
tion has been sorely stricken. Never w9 there an
event when the American people with so much unan
imity exclaimed, in the language of the magicians cf
Egypt, This is the finger of God." We doubt not,
throughout the entire religious community of Amer
ica, of all denominations and sects, there will be a
becoming observance of the day. We hope to see a
proper observance here. There will be religious ex
ercises at the Bethel, at 11 A. M., and a sermon at
the Fort street Church in the evening, by Rev. H. H.
Parker, commencing at half past 7 o'clock. Ameri
cans, and others interested, are cordially invited to !

the gay and tasty manner in which the yacht Prince
waa decorated with a profusion of bunting. At one
P. M. a large and respectable body of residents assem
bled at the new Hall, upon the invitation of W. L.
j Green, Esq , II. B. M. Acting Commissioner and Con
t sul General, where they partook of a generous lunch,
during which the toasts "Queen Victoria" and
Kamehameha V. " were proposed, and met with a
I hearty response. Several stores were closed fur the
i balance of the day. "
We are permitted to copy the following froai
: a letter from 1. L. Gregg, H-q.: "Since I last
l wrote you, I have been much surprised by receiving
notice of my appointment as Keceiver of the Land
fltTicA f.-.r the Nevada Land District. I was not an
app,icaIll for tbe cfIice anj ne,er dreamed cf such a
; thing. Accompanied as the appointment is, by a
message of kind personal regard from Mr. Lincoln,
I I cannot, especially under the circumstances now
existing, but feel a high degree of gratification."
The many friends of Mr. Gregg will be pleased to
learn of his adTancement, and wish him success in
his new calling.
Lumber Bcsinf-S3. Our old friend and late fellow
townsman, rt. Baxter Armstrong, Esq., has pur
chased an interest in the old pioneer lumber firm of
Nathaniel Page, of San Francisco, and intends to
reside in future in that city, and give Lis personal
attention to this important and fast-developing busi
ness between these islands and the Pacific cout. By
advertisement in our column-, it will be seen that

My last to you was by the D. C. Jfurray, on the

Taylor kindly promised to send letters and papers
ashore at Honolulu, and a number of Honoluluans
availed themselves of the opportunity by the vessel.
The J). C. Murray, when she left for your port,
took outside the Heads quite a nice set for a tea
party, who were invited by Messrs. C. W. Brooks &
Co., and, from a personal knowledge of the affair, I
can safely eay they had a good time, and when they
left the gallant bark and got safely cn board the
steam-tug, could onfy wish a continuation of the
pleasant moments they had spent at the outset for
the passengers during the remainder of the voyage,
and which they no doubt experienced, the well-kuown
courtesy of Capt. Bennett being cue of those fixed
facts which none can gainsay. At the bountiful col
lation which was spread for the guests and passen
gers, a number of toasts were drunk, and among
them were the health cf His Majesty, the Hawaiian
Nation, the Union, the Reciprocity Treaty, and oth
ers. I plead guilty to getting a glass of La Veuve
Cliquot" several times very near my lips, and it
wouldn't have been very difficult for mo to have
swallowed tbe contents, for there was any given
quantity, and I must say I like wine amazingly, but
it has jilted ine so often and thrown me oil my bal
ance that I am obliged to treat it ss I do womeu,
with whom it is so often linked in song aud associa
tion, and who have the same happy faculty of jilting
and throwing a poor fellow and therefore didn't
indulge. The fault probably does not lie either in
the wine or the women, but in the weak skull of
your correspondent, which can neither bear the ex
hilaration produced by one, nor the belf-conceit en
gendered by attentions to the other.

Departure of the Panama Steamer of May 3d.
The majority cf the foreign residents of Honolulu
appear to have left in to-day's boat. Among thenv
I noticed your respected senior, II. M. Whitney, and
his son; John II. Cole, A. E. McGregor, L. L. Tor-
bert, Capt. James Smith, W. II. Jourdan, and a
number of others. The parting between the first
named gentleman and your correspondent was af
fecting in the extreme. Tbe consequences might
have been serious to the latter, but he was aroused
from his despondency by hearing Mr. Cole remark
that he weighed 130 pounds, and his appearing so
highly delighted by the possession of such tremen

When the steamer sailed, three lone individuals

We are now in the full tide of Opera, Theatre,
Nigger Minstrel and Circus amusements. I am im
partial, and patronize all. I confess a lik'mg, a huge
admiration, for the trained monkeys and dogs of
Cook i Wilson's Circus TLey perform some iLost
astonishing things. Next to the Circus, I like the !
Opera, and have several times attended the perform
auces of tbe Bianchi Troupe at the Metropolitan.
The operas thus far performed have been Sonnam
bula, Krnani, Trovatore, Traviata and Barliere
di Si vigil. They Lave a large repertoire, and
t will ?xhaut it before thev leave. Maeuire has en
gaged another full troupe, with Madame Sconcia,
prima donna, as scprano, aud Adelaide Phillips as
contralto. They commenced their season last niht,
at the Academy of Music, with Trcvatorc. The
house was j trained. It was a perfect ovation. Ade

By this evening's Bulletin I see that a large
number of the merchants, jobbers and importers of
this city, with a view to the health, recreation and
comfort of themselves and employes, have resolved
to close their stores, offices and places of business
every Saturday hereafter at novu. The bnsiuess
men in all the principal Eastern cities have adopted
this practice, and it meets with very general favor.
We have fewer holidays in this country than in any
other, and the necessity of increased recreation
among business men, we are pleased to know, is
coming to be more generally recognized." To the
merchants of Houolulu I cm only say, in the words
cf Abraham Lincoln to Lord Lyons, when the latter
read an autograph letter of Queen Victoria to him,
announcing the marriage of one of the pretty prin
cesses which Her Majesty has so prolifically bestowed
upon John Bui!, "Go, and do thou likewise."
The general market for Hawaiian produce remains
unchanged. There is a slight stiffness in Sugars,
and Pulu is firmer. The absence of one of the larg-
gest bears" iu this produce at your Islands has
had its effect in an enhanced rate for the article.
Hawaiiau Rice has been quoted at 17c
I bring uiy gossip to a close with the following
olla podiida: It is reported that Capt. James
Smith, who went East in to-day's steamer, intends !
to purchase a propeller for tbe Island trade. The
number of vessels of this description which will be
thrown on the market when Government commences
to reduce our naval force will render desirable boats
very cheap, and one perfectly adapted to the trade
can probably be.picked up at a bargain. A rumor
is in circulation that an old established firm in the
Hawaiian trade will terminate about the 1st of July,
by the withdrawal of the senior partner, who has
recently been elected to Congress. Other changes
are talked of in leading Island houses. I learn that
Bamuin W. Field inteuds visiting the Pacific for
business purposes. Hon. D. L. Gregg has beeu ap
pointed U. S. Receiver of moneys from public lands
in the Nevada Land District. Mr. Alfred W. Mit
chell is superintending a valuable gold mine in Tu
oluraue county, California, of which he is part own

one of the oldest lumber firms in San Francisco, and
intends residing here. The Eclectic Magazine, for

for our last week's issue, but crowded out for want
Editor of the P. C. Advertiser :
Sir: The Hawaiian Gazette of May 6th, contains a speci
men of " literary fairness" which ouf-'ht to commend its author
to a prudent huslmudry of his resources, or make him a candi
date for a boarding school.
Bishop Staley, in a note to his " l ite Pastoral," makes use of
the following language, viz : "It would he difficult to find any
one in this so-called Christian Nation, be they adults or chil-
j dren, that has ever heard," 4rc, and Grummuticus attempts
to justify it. The original blunder is very apparent; its at
tempted justification is a note-worthy confusion of terms.
Grammaticui s:iys, "As to the use of 'they' in the paren
thetical chime, be they adult?,' &lc, it is plural, because plu
rality is Implied whenever a singular distributive is used, such
a9 1 each,' ' eitlu r,' 'any orio.' "
Take his own illustration, with a simple chance of tense, in
or.!?rtna freer me cf his so-caKed distributives, and note the
" I will give a hook to each ; they will be much pleased.
I will give a ho.k to eithtr ; thty will be much pleased.
1 will give a book tetany one ; thry will he much pleased.
Dots the conclusion follow ? Is it absolutely irresistible ?
Po?sihiy not, in the Iiist two examples, until human nature
becomes somewhat rejormed. I
Now, were the premises correct in regard to distributives, th'
phrase miy one wouM have no application to the facts, since i
is not distributive. It is, eo to speak, doubly indefinite. llu
the prtmi.-es themselves nve inadmissible, for, while the rule
Would arp'y to each, either would still lie It-ft out in the cold.
This anomalous use of trran is still further jusiified on the
plea that "to have aid ' be he who,' Ac, (meaning, it is pre
sumed, 'be he adult,' would have excluded the female
skx." Grant this, and what becomes of the lli.-hop's preaching
that all 7if u should repent? WouM he be witling thus to trujt
the 44 litltrr half " of creation to uncovenauled mercies? He
siJes, is any principle of the English language better establish-
eJ a!,Kf,i esage, grammar, -g.iod grammar," than that the
appropriate general term lor th; race is a masculine temn or
The Bishop's reviewer, in copying his language, substitutes
Ant e for ha, in the sentence quoted above. On the presump
tion that the error is not a typographical one, it is evident thai
the reviewer's mind was upon the plurals, 41 adults or children,
with which the verb must agree as necessarily as with the words
44 any ooe." And, since here waa a dilemma, it was ijuite as
natural to take the nearer horn, although the liberty taken with
the I!ishops English was scarcely allowable. It should be
noticed, however, that the verb Aaie or has was not the point
iu dispute ; hut the issue was with 44 any one, he they," c
while the first was appropriated, apparently, as a cloak for a
Acain, since literary fairness" is demaniled.it may he as
well to iu.-ist on grammatical accuracy. Grammaticus says
"The verb have" is plural, and, therefore, not agreeing with
its nominative 'that.'" Not to be uncharitable towards the
Syntax of Grammaticus, in the above quoted sentence, it is
submitted that, in strict accuracy, plurality cannot be predica
ted of any verb; Certainly not of those fiTins of Verbs which
are used with singular suj.;ct as well as plural ones. That,
as a relative, can as well It: plural as singular, in which caso
have is the X'rper lorm of the verb. Ia the case in question,
4adult or ehiMfn" are referred to, and all pronouns or adjec
tive pronouns mearing the name, must correspond in number.
If it be written adult or child, has become the proper form of
the verb, h:ie thry becomes he, or she, or both, not to he too
exclusive. In short, the nouns and pronoun; must either all be
piural, with Ajte for the verb, cr they must be singular with
has. To quote authorities on so fiuiple a matter, would be
eupernuou-. a lew grams or common ser.se are ail the author
As to the use of the verb with the m uu of multitude, here
even Ioetors disagree. Good usaee is not uniform. The ab-eew-e
c.f uniformity results from the nature of the case. This
clas of nouns is singular in form, but plural in meaning, so tfcat
the verb to le employed will depend, almost entirely, upon the
condition of taiud of the person. If his thoughts are upon the
collection as a unit, the form of the verb will be that which
agrees with the singular nomir.ative ; but if they are upon the
individuals which compose that unit, the form of tbe verb wi'd
be that which is used with a plural nominative.
l.ut. in the case at issue, Granimattcu appears to dismiss
the subject by excluding the word sret from the class, entirely ;
thus "darkening counsel hy words without knowledge." lie
says, 44 1 his sect have, Ac., (used by the Ilev. L. Pmith.) can
not be defended on the ground urged by the reviewer, viz : that
sect' is a noun of multitude. For the word this' being placed
4bt fore it, shows that it is regarded as singular."
The hical inference from all this is, that Gramm itiru
wi-.uld usr all collective nouns as plural; that, placing fAi's
liefore sct makes it singular, and, consequently, not collective;
and that, thertfort, haie should r.ot be used wirh it. If the
position which thus appears to be aumed, prove ar.ythins, it
proves too much ; f.r, once (dlowod. it would be dLTieult to tell
what a nc.un of multitude, or a collective noun, is. Hat the re
viewer does not, in the least, appear to have defended th use
of hate on the ground "that 'sect' is a noun of multitude."
That it was such was taken for granted, and apologies were
sought fr the use of have, not m account of the individuals
composing the kect, but on account of the anomalies inherent to
it. It has been suggested, however, that he might have male a
better point, had he admitted an error, and pronounced it all
tbe more macifest because the sect was so small.
There is no doubt that many persons using the demonstrative
this before fcf, would prefer the v. rb has after it. but not be
cause sect is not collective, till it is certain that the tendency
is to the use of thht form r.f the verb which corresponds with
the plural. A single example will suffice. -4 This i-eonle who
knoweth not the law, are cursed." Here the collective is con
sidered with reference to its form, l y the use of the relative
clause, and, at the same time, with reference to its meaning, by
the verb employed. Yours, 4c, Stshi.

To the true Jriendt of cur country at the Hawaiian
It is said here that I am proud of the noble dona
tion from the Sandwich Islands to aid the cause of our
Republic in our present emergency. If to have had
any agency in planning and planting aud watering
the mission of salvation to that country, and forty
five years ago to have been the first minister of the
j Gospel who offered himself to be sent thither as a Mis
! sionary pioneer, and for a life-long service, can en
' hance the gratification of contemplating the happy
j fruits of that enterprise, iu accordance with the un
i tailing promises of the Lord of the harvest, wLo, I
! have no doubt, commanded it for His own benevolent
purposes, then, surely, I may well be supposed to fe
licitate myself when delectable fruits appear, to our
general joy, while those who planted the precious
seed never dreamed it could ever be needed by a patri
ot army of the United States in quelling a gigantic and
murderous rebellion. If the people of the United
States have, for two score years and more, by many
faithful aud competent laborers, sustained the main
work of Christianizing and civilizing the descendants
of a cruel paganism there, as they themselves have
gratefully acknowledged, why should I not greatly
rejoice to hear cf their well directed and efficient ef
forts to send the same Gospel to " regions beyond,"
and to send back to us here the tokens of their friend
And now where this once happy Republic, loved
and venerated at home and abroad, especially for its
free institutions, its justice to foreign Governments,1,
and its kindness to the heathen, is insulted, assaulted,
and imperiled by a traitorous, perjured, slave-coveting
and unscrupulous host of enemies to freedom and
equity, here at Lome, who, iu defiance of the ordi
nances of God and the mandates of justice and hu
manity, have slain their scores of thousands, and put
millions to grief, why should notour people rejoice to
know that the incense of prayer and sympathy, and
the otferiugs of thousands of gold and silver come up
bofore God iu our behalf, on those once dark and
barren Islands which, since the Bible was given them,
have been seen from afar blossoming as the rose, on
the bosom of the great Pacific ? There was a pro
priety and a beauty in the method of uniting those
who were born there and those who from abroad
have found a peaceful place of residence, or delight
ful sojourn under those genial skies, in gratefully
eeuding back a generous return to our people who
have sought their good, and now appreciate the'r to
kens of friendship in the time of our wide spread
distress, though the day-star of our deliverance has
appeared, and the overshadowing storm cloud of sla
very has now nearly vanished away. Soon may you
hear the shouts of the victory of Freedom over Op
pression and Rebellion, and join our halleluiahs of
peace. And may the nations of the globe swell the
anthems of praise to God through ages to come for
this great deliverance granted the American Repub
lic. " Where the Spirit of the Lord i9 there is lib
erty,''' and where the true and full Gospel is heard,
studied and venerated by the people, and honored by
the rulers, there is the happy abode of Freedom'
