Height back cgain, and so nothing, under any cir- j
cumt.mces. would be lus-t by her trip. This, there
is little doubt, is the most that has been really pio-
posed in England yet, telegrams and letters to the
contrary notithst:iiiditig. That being t-o, American
steani&hip prepi ietura are certainly ahead in this mat
ter, as will hereinafter appear."
Regarding the movements of the two great
American steamboat kingn Uolladay and Webb,
the same paper has the following :
It is known that there are at least two different
steamship proprietors who are competitors for the
line, and within the past two days it is said that a
third and formidable one has arisen in New York.
The two competitors who are openly and avowedly in
the field are .Messrs. lIoilaluy & lirenhain, of this
city, anw Mr. W. II. Webb, of .'ew York. The
former gentlemen, it is said, propose to send their
present Honolulu steamers through to Syduey, or
connect with a line from Honolulu to Sydney. JJy
way of making commencement, it is understood that
a steamer has been chartered in Sydney, called the
Claude tlnmillon, and that she is already on the
way to Honolulu, and that her passengers and mails
may be expected in San Francisco on the 21st of
February, by the Idaho. It is to be feared that
these steps have beeu Liken with more haste than
speed. Not a little of the chances of the success of
the line for passengers, at least, uepeuds upon the
impression that is made at first. Interested parties
will try to decry the route. It is in the highest
degree, therefore, desirable that the first steamers
should be first-class, that good men at the Australian
end should have the business in hand, and that no
hitch of any kind should take place. For these
reasons it is to be regretted that the first steamer to
come through should be the Claude Hamilton, a
vessel that is looked upon as so inferior that she fails
to hn 1 employment as a coaster in Australia. Had
the parties here been well informed on the subject,
they would have known that the lersous who have
scut the Claude Hamilton forward have an "axe to
grind," and that they are about the last who would
be likely to make such a line a success. We speak
entirely in the interests of the trade of this port, our
only desire being that nothing shall be done to mar
so worthy an enterprise, and that in the end the line
shall prove a successful one. It is also a matter for
consideration whether such comparatively small
steamers as those running betweeu here and Honolulu
are sufficient for the through route. No one having
a knowledge of what is required by the necessities of
the trade can possibly say with truth that they are
sufficient. Let us make no mistakes in starting such
an enterprise as shall lead to failure. Depend upon
it our every movement will be watched by the
wealthy shareholders of the Peninsular and Oriental
Company, which at present monopolizes the traffic,
and our every weakness will be pointed out.
The last, but by no mcaDS the least, of the com
petitors is Mr. W. H. Webb, the wealthy ship-builder
and steamship proprietor, of New York. Mr. Webb
recently paid this city a visit, and although it was
not known at the time, yet it was a fact, that his
business related to this matter of establishing a steam
line to Australia. From the facts th:it were within
our own knowledge it is safe to say that Mr. Webb is
as far ahead in the progress he has made in his
negotiations as he is in his capacity to effectively
carry the line out. Already have the Governments
of New South Wales, New Zealand aud Queensland
pledged themselves to his agents to pay a certaiu
subsidy. With his well-known influence at Wash
ington, and with the steps he has already taken there,
it is pretty certain that he will obtaiu any subsidy
our Government may ofjer.
The Steamers Peady. The great capacity of Mr.
Webb's steamers are well known. Certainly they
caunot be beaten in point of accommodation or speed.
He proposes to put the following steamers ou the
JVebratka A 1 at Lloyds ; 2,143 tons register ;
3HK) tons builders' measurement ; 850 horse power ;
12fc0 feet long, and 41 feet beam ; built in May, 1800,
and averaged 15$ knots on her trial trip.
jXevada A 1 ; 2,145 tons register ; 85 inch cylin
der, 12 feet stroke ; 284 feet ou main deck, and
licensed to carry 838 passengers ; average speed on
trial trip, 15 knots, and built in December, 18C7.
Dacota ft A 1 at Lloyds ; 2,150 tous register ; 281
feet long and 41 feet beam ; 83 inch cylinder and 12
feet stroke ; licensed to carry 720 passengers.
Santiago de Cuba 1,027 tons ; 5G0 horse power ;
237 feet long; S8 feet beam ; built in 1SG1, and
rebuilt in lbG7.
These boats are unequalled for speed, passenger
accommodation, comfort and safety, and were orijr-
i inally built for the North American Steamship Com
pany, regaruiess of cost.
The .Yebratka is now laid up in this port, await
ing orders to proceed to Australia so soon as it may
be deemed desirable for her so to do. She will prob
ably Le the pioneer ship of the line. She is well
known as a magnificent vessel, and will do full credit
to her owner. No such steamship has ever appeared
in the Australian waters, and should she proceed
thither, she will, to use an expression common iu
that country, surprise the natives."
Here are all the facts aa far as known, con
cerning the three competitors for the Bubsidy and
traffic on this route, which is destined to become
not lees important than any other in this ocean.
So important is it considered in California, that
the Legislature of tliat State Las passed a reso
lution urging Congress to grant aid at once. The
following arc the preamble and resolution :
Whereas, Action is about to be taken by tlie
British Government and the Australian Colonies to
place upon the Pacific Ocean a line of steanships to
ply monthly between .Melbourne, Australia, and San
Francisco, California, the most superficial observer
wilI perce that such a line of steamers
go largely towards placing tlie Pacific Ocean ui
aicuitH oi intUK otct wnicn It is possioie lor iv vj
trol i therefore, be it
Ifeol?(Jf by the j&'pate, tlie Assembly concurring,
That our Senators in Congress instructed, and our
Representatives be required, to use such influence as
shall cause National aid to be granted in the shape of
a liberal subsidy, commensurate with the importance
of the project for a term of years, to any responsible
cddiwut who will contract to perform a monthly mail
service in vessels of not less than two thousand tona
burthen, between San Francisco and Melbourne."
From the facta presented, our readers must see
that the result of this rivalry will be that ere
long we shall le in regular monthly steam com
munication with every principal port of Australia
Fiji. New Caledonia, and Lave, moreover, larger
and better boats connecting us with San Francisco.
Tli GatewnyH to tlio Iole.
i Tlie above is the title of an extremely intereet
' ing article in Putnam's Magazine for November
last. This magazine ia one of the beet of Ameri
! can monthlies, and employs the pens of some
; of the highest literary talent of the United States,
among whom may be mentioned the names of
; Messrs. J. ii. Austin, Bayard Taylor, R. II. Stod
I dard, S. S. Conant, and other writers of note.
The article which we propose briefly to notice, is
by Prof. T. B. Maury, a relative of Capt. M. F.
j Maury, author of the system of Circle Sailing,"
: which has proved of so much value to the science
j of ocean navigation.
j Prof. Maury opens with the proposition in
! itself sufficiently startling to at once attract at
i tention that 44 there is reason to believe that
j the perilous question of a way to the Pole has at
; last been answered."
, Capt. Silas Bent, of the United States Navy,
! who aceoiniianied Com. Perry's Japan Expedition,
recently delivered a lecture before the Historical
Society and Mercantile Library Association of
St. Louis, in which he laid down the theory,
j long believed by many geographers, that at the
; Pole it;lf there is a large open tnja, (as seen by
! Dr. Kane,) always free from ice, in which the
i temperature of the water and of the air is mild
j at all seasons, (28 in winter and 42 in sum
: uicr.) This, it is asserted, is caused by two
' great ocean currents, flowing from the tropics to
i the Pole, the (ulf Stream in the Atlantic and
i the Kuro-Siwo in the Pacific. The existence of
the latter as a permanent stream, was first demon
j strated by Capt. Bent in 1818, while on the
passage from China to Japan in the sloop-of-war
, ft-ble. Encountering a strong galo of wind
! . , ... , , ,,
: after doubling the southern end of lormosa, the
rihip was laid to, under ntorra-sails, and thus re
mained for threo consecutive days. It would be
natural that a vessel so situated would drift to
leeward at the rate of about thirty miles per
day. Rut when the storm abated, the navigator
was not a little surprised to find that, instead of
having drifted in the direction in which the wind
was blowing, the ship had been actually carried
by a current, known as the Kuro-Siwo, ninety
miles to the northward against the wind. It also
appeared, during the cruise, that there existed,
on the opposite side of Formosa, an equally
strung current rolling its waters southward, dipt.
Rent demonstrates by his own observations, cor
roborated by the statement of a whaling master
with whom he conversed at Honolulu in 1848,
that the Kuro-Siwo, taking its rise in the Pacific
tropics, and pursuing its way northward and
eastward, enters the Arctic Ocean by the way of
Rhering's Straits. In the Atlantic, the Gulf
Stream, pursuing the same course, finds its en
trance to the same ocean by the way of Spitzber
gcn. The statements of our whaling masters are
fully sustained by Capt. John Rogers, of the
United States Exploring Expedition, who passed
to the northward of Rhering's Straits iu 1854-5,
and who states that " as far as he went to the
northward and eastward beyond the straits, he
had an open sea, with a current flowing to the
northward and eastward, and with a temperature
of water much above that due to the latitude."
The same testimony iu regard to the existence of
the great Polar Sea, has been given by different
navigators who have at different periods pcue
trated to the north on the Atlantic side, by
Kot.ebue in 1815, and by Admiral Wrangell in
1823, who both state that " the sea was open to
the northeast as far as the eye could reach."
According to the Transactions of the Royal Society
of London, for 1G75, two Dutch whalers, having
evidently got into the current of the Gulf Stream,
iu 1C55, penetrated to the Pole itself. It is to
be regretted that no account has been preserved
of what they saw in the unexplored sea which
undoubtedly surrounds the Pole, and is the resort
of innumerable whales, walruses, and flocks of
brant geese and ducks.
Resides the two streams running north to the
Polar Sea, the Gulf and the Kuro-Siwo, there are
two counter currents iu each ocean, issuing out
of the sea and running south, that in the At
lantic skirting along the coasts of Norway and
Great Rritain, while that in the Pacific discharges
its waters into the China Sea.
It being admitted then, that there does exist
an open Polar Sea, the temperature of which
according to Capt. Rent's theory is about 23
in winter, and into and out of which there con
stantly flows two warm currents, let us see how
he proposes to make these facts available to the
commerce of the world.
It is well known that in those high latitudes,
the needle of the compass deflects so much as to
often cease to be a guide to the mariner. Capt.
Rent proposes a new mode of reaching the Pole,
which we will give in his own closing words iu a
communication addressed to the President of the
Geographical Society of New York, in which he
states his convictions 44 that the Gulf Stream
and Kuro-Siwo are the prime and only cause of
the open sea about the Pole, with its temperature
so much above that due to the latitude ; that the
only practicable avenues by which ships can
reach that open sea, and thence to the Pole, is
by following the warm waters of these streams
into that 6ea ; and that to find and follow these
streams, the water-thermometer is the only guide,
and that for this reason they may be justly
termed The Thcrmometric Gateways to the
If, by actual experiment, it shall bo proved
that the theory here advanced is a correct one,
and that ships can safely pass from the Atlantic
to the Pacific by the route indicated, the fact
would become the event of the nineteenth century.
The dreams of Ross, Parry and Franklin, and of
the hosts of brave men who have lost their lives
in the vain attempt to solve the problem of a
northwest passage, will bo realized, the course of
commerce will be revolutionized, and Capt. Rent
"e hailed as a benefactor of his race. Whether
the theory is to live or die, remains to be seen.
The subject is before the Geographical Society of
New York, which it is reported will devise means
of shortly giving the proposition the fairest trial
by practical experiment. At tho same time, it is
stated that Germany, Sweden, France, England
aud Russia, have each in contemplation expedi
tions to the Pole. Dr. Hayes, the distinguished
American explorer, has also announced another
expedition, to start in the spring of 1870. Thus
it appears there will be ample opportunity to test
the new theory.
To show how commerce would be benefited by
the proposed Polar route between tne Atlantic
and Pacific Oceans, we copy from Putnam for
December, the following table of the present dis
tances between a few of the great centres of trade,
and, in comparison, the distances by Capt. lient's J
route through the Polar basin, with the dit-tanees

The figure expres not the result of one geographer's esti
mate, but the mean of many. Allowance haa been made, too,
fur the detour which all veasels at sea need to make.
By extending this estimate to include these isl
ands, we find that the distance from Roston to
Honolulu by the present route is, in rough figures,
13,000 miles ; by the proposed Polar route, 7,000
miles ; a difference in favor of the latter of
Should science demonstrate Capt. Rent's route,
there would be of days saved, from New York

Shar.ghae, 100; New York to Hakodadi, 100;
Liverpool to Hakodadi, 115 ; Roston to Honolulu,
50. What an immense saving to the commerce
of the world !
Again there can be no doubt but that the
open Polar Sea, being free from the ice in the
winter, and its waters teeming with the immense
quantities of minute animal life brought thither
by the Gulf and Kuro-Siwo streams, is the breed
ing place and favorite haunt of the great Polar
whale. It is well known that this animal cannot
live without breathing, and if, as eome have sup
posed, the whole surface of the North, from the
Pole to Rhering's Straits, and still farther south,
is one mass of solid ice in winter, the whale
could not exist. Once let our whalemen find the
way into tli's Polar Sea, they can winter there in
safety and comfort, and return south in the spring
or summer, well rewarded for their toil. And
we venture to predict that some of these hardy
and adventurous men will be the first to test tlie
pmcticabiEty of the proposed plan of getting
into tlie sa, by " Thcrmometric Sailing."
The 44 water-thermometer," which is proposed
to supplant, in Polar waters, the magnetic needle,
is very s mple in its construction, being nothing
more thtn the ordinary thermometer, set in a
copper cjlinder. This is pierced with small holes
to admit the sea-water, when it is cast, and has
an opening through which to examine the face of
the instrument after immersion.
To conclude. Let no one be in haste to pro
nounce the new theory as Utopian. In this age
of improvement anckdiscovery, old ideas are be
coming exploded, and all thinking men are in
favor of icquiring, with unprejudiced minds, into
everything which may promise to benefit man
kind. AYe have by no means exhausted the sub
ject, and may refer to it in a future number.
Jrnai Judgment in tlie Jolleo
In an item which appeared in our last issue,
respecting a case in the Police Court, it was
stated that a Chinaman, who was proved to have
furnished opium to a native, was discharged, be
cause the prosecution (the Sheriff) failed to show
that the party furnished with the drug was not a
Chinaman. At the time, it occurred to us that
it was a singular conclusion to arrive at, to insist
that because the prosecution did not prove a neg
ative, therefore the party guilty of illegally
furnishing, should be discharged, probably to
continue his wretched business of poisoning tho
natives. Since then, we have looked up the law
applicable, and find it at page 141 of tho late
edition of the Penal Code. The section under
which the charge was brought, reads as follows :
"45. Any person, except licensed pliydicians, who shall im
port. Bell or furiiibii any opium, or any preparation thereof,
without a license rs above provided, shall lie lined not less
than one hundred dollars, nor more than Ave hundred dollars,
or to lie imprisoned at hard laijr for a term not exceeding six
months, in the discretion ol the court."
Section 42 of the same chapter empowers the
Minister of the Interior to grant the licenses 44 to
import and 6cll opium to Chinamen," &c. Section
43, provides that the licensee shall give bond that
lie will not sell or furnish to any person except
Now the case to which Ave refer was that of a
Chinaman without a license, furnishing to a
native. Ry what process of reasoning can it be
made to appear that section 45 or the Penal Code,
as quoted above, did not entirely and sufficiently
apply? If the view adopted by the Magistrate
was correct, to the effect that it was necessary to
prove that the receiver of the opium was not a
Chinaman, then of course, if the case was reversed,
and it was proved that he was a Chinaman, the
unlicensed furnisher (because the sale of opium is
restricted to Chinamen) would go free, by parity of
reasoning. So that, by tho decision of Ilis Sapient
Worship, tho possession or not of a license is, as
Toodles would say, 44 not of the slightest conse
With a Magistrate bo obtuse, or so wilfully a
perverter of the administration of the laws as the
present incumbent has rejteatedly proved himself
to be since he has held office more especially of
late years it is not surprising that the public
have lost all confidence in the justice and probity
of the Police Court and indeed in the adminis
tration that retains him in his position. What is
tho use of executive officers, in any branch of the
public service, endeavoring to check crime or of
fenses of any kind against the statutes, when the
Police Magistrate sides with the accused, and
screens him from his deBerts? No prosecuting
officer can be expected to do his duty, faithfully,
when his best efforts are thus thwarted by one
who ought to co-operate with Iiim.
Tlie XCono. Election.
The official organ makes light of the manner in
which the election in Kona was conducted. This
is perfectly in keeping with the tactics of that
fussy sheet. A Government officer circulates
what he must have known to be a base falsehood
concerning one of the candidates, and the organ
thereupon attempts to ridicule the defeated can
didate, the natural inference being that it ap
proves and endorses all that the successful one
This matter of running petty Government
officers for the Legislature, and of other local
Government officers straining every nerve and re
sorting to methods of questionable legality to
secure the election of their pet, is becoming
quite a serious affair. In Kona the member
elect is the Sheriff, and no one doubts the quality
of his politics, or the way in which, if he is
allowed to retain his seat, he will vote on all im
portant ministerial questions.
Heaven knows that the people have been robbed
of nearly all voice in the making of laws, so that
the appearance of their representatives in the
Legislative Hall is little else than a shallow farce.
Rut to see, after all this, the machinery of Gov
ernment prostituted to take away what little is
left, by securing the election of its own creatures,
and the official organ applauding all this, is
enough to stir the blood of every man who dares
to act and think for himself.
fg The attention of those interested in coffee, rice,
sugar and pula, is directed to the remarks of our
commercial writer, showing the causes of the decline
ia the prices of these articles in San Francisco. It
is well to be fully posted up regarding the prices and
prospects of our produce.
A. feliort Reply to n. long: Lender.
It is quite unnecessary that we should make
any lengthy reply to the three columns of edito
rial slang in the last issue of tho Government
organ ; but it seems incumbent no us to notice, as
briefly as possible, two or three points in it.
1. The statement that Mr. Randolph has di
rected no communication to the Advertiser is
false. We have several times during the past
fifteen years received items of interesting intelli
gence from him and other residents on the groups
visited by the missionary packet and oil traders,
and sent them files of this paper.
2. The assertion that any one connected with
the Hawaiian Roard has requested us to publish a
letter relating to the conduct of the Minister of
Foreign Affairs in the Mahoe matter, is also false.
A gentleman did call on us and showed us a
manuscript, but made no request to have it pub
lished, or it would have appeared in our last
3. Regarding the case of the young man on
the Kaneohe Plantation we ask the same Minis
ter to state distinctly and without prevarication,
if a person employed on that plantation was not
discharged for voting for Mr. Cummings, acd in a
few days thereafter re-instated ?
4. In the whalebone case, the testimony of
Nakookoo was set aside as unworthy of credence,
by the Magistrate, though the Crown Attorney
declared him to be 4 a perfectly reliable witness,"
and all the circumstances and testimony strongly
corroborated it ; while in tho larceny case tried
last week a foreigner was found guilty by the
same Magistrate on less conclusive evidence, the
witnesses in both cases being Hawaiians.
5. Respecting the Japanese who were taken
away, we assert, on the authority of several gen
tlemen who conversed with them at tho time of
their being taken from the plantations and other
places, that sjme of them declared they hft ser
vice involuntarily. After all their arrangements
for leaving had been perfected, and they were on
board tho ship ready to sail, doubtless they would
all say they were glad they were going home.
Now these points which we have instanced may
to many readers appear trifling; but when we
take into consideration that the Gazette is the
official paper of the Hawaiian Government, and
that the leading article in the last issue, which is
a series of falsehoods and misrepresentations,
was written by a Crown Minister apparently for
the purpose of (regardless of the truth of the
statements uttered) injuring this paper and its
publisher we say, when this is taken into account,
the matter is of some importance.
Rut what else can be expected of a Minister
who secured the passage of a law to eject au
Attorney General, by requiring him to know how
to read and write Hawaiian, and then violated the
law in accepting the office himself ; who publicly
declared that the old Constitution was sacred and
should never be unlawfully set aside, and who
himself wrote the draft of the new and helped to
stain the pages of Hawaiian History with the
foul deed of violating popular rights ; and who to
this day uses the columns of the Gazette to
malign and falsify individuals, as we have in
stanced above, and repeatedly in previous issues ?
An officer who acquires his position and influ
ence by such dishonorable means ; and an official
newspaper conducted apparently for the prime
object of uttering and reiterating false statements
may be deemed by a servile few to be indispensa
ble to successful government. Rut an adminis
tration which looks for support to such men and
measures, can never expect to win what lies at the
foundation of the security of every 6table govern
ment popular sympathy and support.
Tlie American Relief Fund
This is perhaps the most useful and active of
the many noble public charities for which Hono
lulu is so justly noted. The Society was com
menced in 1864, on the 22d of February. Its
parentage may rightly bo attributed to Messrs.
Alex. J. Cartwright, the late William E. Cutrell
and A. D. Cartwright. These three, with others
who joined them, met at the Engine Room of
Engine Company No. 2, and formed the plan and
initiated tho fund for the relief of sick and desti
tute Americans. During the six years of its
existence, the Society has paid out for this purpose
and for burials, the sum of $5,014. Forty-three
persons have received relief, eighteen of whom
have died, and been buried by the Society, ten
have been sent to their friends in the United
States, two have been taken off the hands of the
Society by the Queen's Hospital, one taken to
tho American Hospital, one received casual relief,
and two are still receiving assistance from the
The annual meeting was held last Tuesday
evening, the 22d inst, at the Rooms of Engine
Company No. 2, when the report of tho Treasurer
was read. During the past year twelve persons
have received pecuniary aid from the Society, at
an expense to the fund of $1,480.75. Of these,
five have died, and been buried by the Society ;
three have been sent to their homes at the
Society's expense; one taken to the Queen's
Hospital; one received casual relief ; and two as
6tatcd above, are still receiving assistance from
The amount of cash on hand at the last annual
meeting, was $947.65 ; interest received during
the year $53.50; received from subscriptions,
$811.00. Resides the amount of $1,480.75 paid
out for relief and burials, as stated above, the
sum of $0.25 was paid for contingent expenses,
leaving a balance of cash on hand at present of
$331.40. It may be noted here, to show that
the fund has been strictly applied to the purposes
for which it was intended, that the sum total
paid out for contingent, or absolutely necessary
expenses, during the six years of the Society's
existence, has amounted to only $04.50.

evening for the ensuing year :

Mr. J. 0'. Osborne, the architect, who has the
contract for erecting this building on the site of
the old Polynesian office, is making commendable
progress in the work entrusted to him. The
foundations are all laid on solid rock, and the
walls of the first story are going up, eo that the
general form and style of the building begin to
be seen. The material used is concrete, the
blocks of which are made on the spot out of
Portland cement and gravel, which it is said is as
strong and durable as stone or brick, and no more
expensive. From present appearances the build
ing will present a tasteful exterior, the front
having a broad portico, ornamented with four or
five Tuscan columns, made of cement.
The Legislature appropriated $9,000 for a new
Post Office ; but we should judge that the build
ing, as planned for three stories, must cost com
pleted at least twenty thousand. The second and
third floors are designed for the u6e of the print
ing office, for which, however, the Legislature
made no provision. To secure accommodations for
a government printing office is doubtlesr a wise
provision ; for the opposition raised has not been
so much against the government printing its own
work, as against the newspapers and outside
custom job work executed by the government,
which is an unfair competition with private
One half the lower floor, it is stated, will be
finished for the Poet Office and the other for a
store. However much private interests may be
profited by such an arrangement, its propriety
may well be questioned. The whole of the lower
floor, (40 x 50 feet in size) is none too large for
the Post Office service. It must be borne in mind
that within two years, at the farthest, .e shall
become a centre for various steamship lines, now
contemplated between San Francisco and Austra
lia, Panama and China, and that this Post Office
will soon become an international distributing
office for all parts of the Pacific with steamers
touching here every week or two, leaving and
taking off large mails of ten to fifty bags, left
to be forwarded by the connecting steamships,
as they arrive.
Is'oiv if the entire front is fitted up with boxes,
and half the floor is devoted exclusively to Hawai
ian or native mails and service and the other half
to foreign service and this will be found in two
years none too liberal a provision for the postal
service the government can come before the Leg
islature much more gracefully and ask for fur
ther appropriation for the fine building which it
has commenced. Our ideas may be ahead of
those of the Ministers on this subject, and by
some be considered extravagant ; but so far as
the wants of tho postal service are concerned,
twenty years' experience and observations justify
us in saying that any plans less comprehensive
will be altogether behind the age.
