There has been a rumor current thc past week

IM.cno claims, and ,t c-an hardly be r-ible
that His Majesty w ill risk increasing the number
of nobles with material bo unsuited lor the K.-rvire.
A nobleman in other monarchies, but esjM-eially
in Ijlghllid, IX-VolllCS SUth by right of birth or
front eminent services. Even (iladstone is not a
noble, but simple " Jlister Cladstone." In this
country, the aliis, by birth or marriage, have
heretofore Ietn recognized as thc class from which
sch-ctions are made in the creation of nobles, the
only exception being that of C. J. Hopkins, who
is said to have claimed his sent simply because
he had been a miui-iter. The circumstance of
having been a crown minister, and therefore ex-
officio entitled to a seat in the assembly, does Hot
conicr ii ny right to the honor after his term of
service has expired.
The issuing of a life-long patent of nobility to
a foreigner because he thinks himself, or his son,
admirably qualified for the position, involves con
siderable risk to the crown. If the native aliis
are insufficient in number, it would seem thc
wiser course to select some of the more eminent
and educated among the native Hawaiinns, of
whom we might name several, as well qualified
for the honor as either of those already Rssessed
of it. Put as the house is now constituted, there

It is really painful to witness the efforts of the
ministerial Gazette writer in his attempts to justify
thc local Agents of the California Sugar Eefincries
for their part in the efforts to defraud the revenue of
the United States by Mixing charcoal with su-ar.
and also justifying thc morality of theattempt at
a defence of the fraud, made by the late Mr.
(lordon's literary champion in this city. It ia
painful to think that a man who has for many
years challenge! and won the respect of our best
citizens ; a man possessed of a sound reasoning
mind, and mercantile abilities second to few if
any in this community, should so far forget him
self as to prostitute his ability and intelligence by
stooping to defend an act which has been pro
nounced by eminent authority as a palpable fraud ;
as 3OR.U.LY AXD I.TO.VLI.Y FRAf WLEXT."
We have followed the writer in his tortuous
course through column after column or thc Gazette
with the hope that we might find one sentence
which could be held up in extenuation of the error
in judgment, to call it by no harder name, of which
the writer was guilty. We are satisfied that
conscience is doing its work. Thc literary efforts
of the gentleman and his friends (?) arc for the
purosc of quieting the ttill small voice," which
is made manifest by their oft-repeated visits to
their mouthpiece, like the moth to the candle,
only to suffer the more.
To our mind the writer for the Gazette, in his j
attempts at a justification, has made a very strong j
case azainst those whom he seeks to defend. Let
us quote a little : 44 Whenever immense duties
are levied on any article, and more especially
upon an article of prime necessity, there will al
ways be an exercise of ingenuity to avoid the
payment of such excessive duty."
It is well known that a high tariff' necessitates
a vigilant Custom House staff, a strong coast
j guard, a corps of detectives, whose only duty it
is to expose just such attempts at a violation of
thc revenue law as the writer cssuyB to defend.
The highest order of cunning and deceit is called
in play by tlie successful smuggler ; the ingenuity
practiced often challenging the admiration of
honest men but not necessarily enlisting their
sympathies to such an extent as to lead them to
aid and abet thc schemes. This writer contends,
however, that in the matter of these sugars there
was no ingenuity exercised to avoid the payment
of wliat was thought to be excessive duties, and
savs : 44 IJut it may be well to say how it hap
pened tliat the device of mixing carbon with thc
sugar was resorted to. It had been usual, before,
to mix a light sugar with a darker one to bring
down tlie whole color below No. 12. This no one
ever doubted to be perfectly legitimate; but it
was found that the darker Bugare, which generally
were 6econd or third crystals, melted (delique
sence as it is termed) the lighter, or first crystals,
so that there was a loss of weight -" or in other
words, thc 44 rfectly legitimate'' method en
tailed a loss." 44 For this reason, it was thought
necessary to resort to some other expedient," or,
in other words, to prevent a loss, some expedient
other than a 44 perfectly legitimate " one must be
ingeniously contrived. It is of record that a
council was Lcld and the propriety of mixing
charcoal in thc sugar discussed, and one party, in
the employ of the Refineries, objected to the plan
as he did not believe that the mixture would es
cape detection by the Custom House authorities in
San Francisco ; but 44 Mr. Gordon did not believe
that the admixture of charcoal which could only
be taken out by refining, and which reduced the
sugar to refinery sugar, could be construed into
any fraud on the revenues of the United States,
more especially as he was not required to state the
color in his invoices, but is always left to the
juJTiient of thp apprni-crs." And in defence of
.Mr. .rd.jn"d roMtion thc Uaztttt writer garbles
the charge of Judge Huffman hj omitting to
quote tlie very important part which we have
"It in arum!, with the ingenuity which has characterized
n.iir.. l tlirouL-hout the whole case, that the suppMsi.m or
ct.nrfilmeiit of any tact which the Ur iloea not cUI opon hiui
to .liscW-se is not wroopTul, and that iiamucii a, ui una
it i n r-.uiMite that in the entry or the invoice the color
of the ikhIs nhall tie ntaf.1, the ujpreiioa or concealment ol
Uie true Col .r cuU not be an olleoce. It is true, gentlemen,
that the color of the uear i not required to be stated in the
iuvr.ice. hut from the nature of tie oath tk'tt it rnjuirtd to
be tuken, it appear to me plain that Comjrett intruded btf
impo$in.j nn tearchimj an oath that there tkoutd be dttcloied
at the tune, and not upprestd or concealed, any fact
whether required to be ttated in the entry or invoice or
not. uhirh it tea important to the interest of the revenue
to be iuou-n. or u-hrreby the revenue of the United State
mi -jiit be -ItfranHit. Had it been intentled that the tmport-
I er.r thoul-1 merely rureur that te invoice, bill of lading ana
' entry ueie true, the oath would hare been to that effect
and nnlh in a more. Hut it goes further. The importer
tuea. t that the imoice and bill OJ mjo'j'"v"
by mr to the Collector of are the true and only tn-
tftire and bill of liulin'j by me received of the goods, etc
that the entry now delivered by me contain a just and
true crroui.t of aid ijood. etc.. according to aid inooice
and bill of ladimj,uud that nothing ha been, on my part
nor to my knowledge on the part of any other person, con
doled or suppressed tehereby the United ftatt may be de
frauded of any part of the auty laufully due on aid good,
etc' It appear to me that u hm that oath tra required by
Comjresn it was intended to cover juit suck u trantaction
as tuts," i,c. -

j the opinion of one Judge, on any matter is infal
lible, however eminent that Judge may be."
The whole gist of this charcoal transaction is
i ably illustrated by the following remarks taken
I from thc Judge's charge :
i " One other observation will I think expose the true nature
!of thiii trau-taction. I am not aware that the obligations of
ciliiers to the Cuvernment are less solemn or lens imperative
j than those of one citizen to auoth'-r. HupMe, gentlemen,
i tliat a contract had bet-u made ami the money paid don, by
which one of you a pried to deliver sugar above No. 12 Dutch
; standard in color, and suppose that, as has been proved here,
j it were Nsit.le to imparl to sugar of a dark hue a lighter
I apiear.-itice by putting into it g- psum or chalk, or some oilier
' coloring matter, your contract in the case supposed would (like
j the obligation of the importer to pay so much to the tlovern
I nient, iu ense his goods are above No. 12 Dutch Htaudard) be
1 to pive to tlie iiiireli.iser miirnr nliove Xn. 12 Hutch stalid.ird in
color. In Iwtii cases the same mode of cla-sincation is referred
lo. in no n cases me same purase is useu to muicaie me kiiiu
of sugar tliat, is the subject matter of the obligation. The
obligation U in the one case to pay the duty ppccilied in the
Act, if Hie sugar is of a certain color ; in the other, to deliver
for a price already paid, sugar of a certain sperilled color.
Would you conceive yourselves at lilierly to take sugars of No.
6 in color, and put into them ;ypsum or chalk, and tender
them to the purtv with whom you had contracted as sugars
alMive No. 12 t Would you exct liini to listen to you, if you
should xav : " I contract to give you susj.-ir above No. 12
Hutch standard in color ; but what is the Dutch standard of
t uioi : a ou tui only iiiuw uy tuuhiiiji t.i ii. iiuvuj;u ajiunn
bottle. You can eo to the Appraiser's ollice and compare the j
ou can only know by looking at it through a glass
sugar I offer Willi sugar above No. 12 Dutch standard, and if j
the colors are the same I claim the right to tender it, notwith-
standing it is in Cict No. o sugar, and I luive used chalk or
gypsum to make it appear of a lighter color." Can any man j
mistake as to the propriety of such a course? It appears to
ine that there is no diHercnre between the two cases, and the
device by which a seller would give a false appearance of
litflitiiexs is of the same character, and must have the same
Sal ellect as the device by which the importer would give to
these sugars a raise apiearance of darkness. I
If that view be correct, then gentlemen, in this case the i

In conclusion, we may add that when we
published tlie decision of Judge Hoffman several
weeks since, we purposely omitted making any
extended comments on it, leaving our readers to
form their own unbiased opinion ; but this at
tempt of thc official organ to give a false coloring
to the decision for sinister purposes, leaves us no
j option but to show clearly that Judge Hoffman

Tlio XullIo InculiiH.
Thc Gazette bangs its head this week against
the Advertiser with a force that would knock
the brains out of its own head, if it jMjsscssed
j any. None but a Government paper could afford
to devote four columns to the stupid defense of
the Ministers, as it does. We are quite content
to let it 44 bang away," as no one is so likely to
be hurt by its crazy contortions as itself.
Bennett's Own takes up thc cudgel, and advo
cates the abolition of the worthless concern
known in the community as the 44 Government
Press." liennett is sound in his arguments this
time. A greater drawback to national progress
and prosperity, never existed in any country than
this same official press, which from week to week
disgraces itself, thc Administration and the com
munity. Take the money which is annually squan
dered in supporting it ten or fifteen thousand a
year and devote it to making good roads around
the islands, and there would be less complaint
about hard times, and greater respect for the Gov
ernment. liut listen to what Bennett's Oim says :
In every government, not absolutely despotic, this
thing of a Government Press is an obsolete idea. In
countries where the soul is fettered by superstition,
and the body by the yoke of absolute authority, and
the people are kept in ignorance and darkness, such
a press may well exist as the prop and support of
power, but not in a country lite these isianas, which
claims to enjoy freedom under a constitutional mon
archy. A Government Press which does not reflect the in
terests of the people and the country, should be
abolished as a foul incubus a leech on the Treasury
a monopoly at the expense of the people a hydra,
whose poisonous beads scatter venom on the people
a bloated privilege for the benefit of the few, that
keeps down all competition for the government print
ing, without a show of compensation or benefit ex
cept to those immediately concerned in its manage
ment Who does it belong to ? Who controls the piebald
affair ? A small family in power, who wish to keep
all the offices in their particular 44 ring," and they
are down upon any person who should aspire to
office outside of that 44 ring." What superior right
have the foreigners in power over those who are not
in power ? Most of those whose interests are sup
ported by the Government Press were mere adven
turers in the islands. Have they any exclusive right
to office and power ? Have they a fee-simple interest
in place and enolument? A person from reading
the Gazette would suppose that these adventurers,
because they accidentally fill high stations, are jeal
ousnervously excited to an extraordinary degree
if any other adventurer, whatever his qualifications
or abilities may be, should have the temerity to
aspire to any position, however humble even to be
a representative from South Kona ! Are these
political Mokannaa afraid that some person may pull
the mask from their brows, and exhibit their political
sins to the people?
We hope the people will arouse in their legislative
rnio;lit. and pull the rotten fabric of a press down

As eome of our readers are aware, the com
pany which owns the line of steamers running
between San Francitsco and China, have peti
tioned Congress to increase the subsidy to one
million of dollars, in order tliat a semi-monthly
service may be secured. While the large sum
asked for may not be granted, an increase, suffi
cient to secure a semi-monthly service, will prob
ably be appropriated. In that caee, and in thc
event of this port being connected with Sydney
by a monthly steam line, it is probable that the
mail service in the Pacific will be performed wholly
by the China Steam Company in this way : One
eteainer a month will touch at this port, going to
and returning from Yokohama, connecting here
with Australian steamers, owned by the above
! company, and which will time their arrival and
this way, the three points China, San Francisco
! and Australia can be connected by steam, with

Alta of a late date has the following remarks
urging Congress to increase the subsidy ol tlie
China line :
4 Important public interests demand the pas-
; Bage of thc bill now before Congress to grant a
subsidy for the establishment of a semi-monthly
line of mail steamers between San Francisco and
Hongkong. The Atlantic, which was long to a
great extent an American ocean, lias lost much
of that character. Our wooden ships are at a dis-
advantage, ami Luropcan steamers have crowoea
J their American rivals out of business. Thc

j an excellent situation for commanding many of
tjJC chief lines of the trade in our hemisphere.
Hydrographical influences give us the superiority
by sea and topographic by land ; and our geo
graphical position is midway on the only temper
ate zone route between China and Eurojie. Eng
land holds thc Island of Hongkong, which is too
small to have any significance, besides Australia
and New Zealand, which are 60 far from the
populous districts of Asia and from any of the
main lines of travel around the world, that they
have little value save for the wealth they may
produce within their own limits. Uritisli Colum
bia lias many elements of value, but it will
probably in a few years be annexed to the United
States, and will tend to increase the importance
of making our comn-ereial position on this coast
as strong as possible. France has Tahiti, New
Caledonia and a little district in Cochin, China,
but so far they are merely military colonies, with
no probability of becoming anything more. The
Philippine Islands are Spanish, the Portuguese

A.H Illustrious Culirit.
We alluded some two or three weeks since to
the killing of one of the editors of Rochefort's
Marseillaise newspaper published in Paris, by
one of the members of the Bonaparte family, and
to thc prompt manner in which the Ministry took
up the matter, promising that the accused should
have justice dealt out to him w ithout reference to
his Imperial connections. He being a member of
the French Chambers or Legislature, that body
alone can try him, sitting as a High Court of
An exchange states that thc illustrious culprit
is the fourth child of Lucien Ponaparte (brother
of the great Emperor,) by his second wife, Alex
andrine lawrencc de Rleschamps. He was born
at Rome on thc 12th of Sept. 1815, and is known
as tlie I'rince Pierre Napoleon. His career is as
full of incident as that of any member ot the re
markable family to which he belongs. In 1832
he visited America to see his uncle Joseph,
formerly King of Spain, and afterward went
to Columbia where he served in the army of
aanianuer. iveturning to Europe he took up his
residence in the Papal States, where he excited
the distrust of the Government, who sent a body
of mounted police to arrest him. He resisted,
and in the melee killed their chief and wounded
two of the officers, for which he was long held a
prisoner at the Castle of San Angelo. Upon his
release he went again to America, but his rest
less spirit could not brook idleness and we next
find him fighting with the Palikascs in Albania.
His propensities 6eem to be thoroughly warlike!
He vainly offered his services to France and the
Viceroy of Egypt, until recalled to Paris by the
out-brcak of 1848, when he received a military
command. The next year he left for Algeria, and
took part in the siege of Zaachta. Since that he
has been several times a member of the Constitu
ent Assembly, and became famous for the ardor
of his Democratic principles. He is a man of
great personal courage, and a firm believer in the
code duello. In relation to the measure of his re
sponsibility in the recent sad affair with M.
Victor Noir, public opinion is about evenly
divided. The accounts given by M. Paul Caasao--nac
and M. Rochefort, widely disagree in their
statement of the facts, and until the truth is ab
solutely known, it would be useless to speculate
about the matter at all.

With this caption, the official organ wakes up
from a Rip Vanwinkle sleep of five or six years,
to learn that we have no house for the accommo
dation of strangers. The subject has been advo
cated from time to time, and even public meetings
held to endeavor to fix upon some practicable plan.
What the Gazette says below, is simply a repeti
tion of what has been reiterated for the last ten
The time seems to be at hand when a comfortable
and commodious Hotel ought to be started in Ilono
lulu. It is little to our credit that neither our resi
dents from the other islands, nor strangers from
abroad, can arrive in town without inconvenient em
barrassment, as to where they can find shelter antl
food, that refreshment and accommodation wnien
every town, however insignificant in civilized coun
tries, offers to travelers. . .. .
There, strangers have no hesitation, on calls 01
business or pleasure, to penetrate the most sparsely
set'Jed district, to arrive without previous notice in
a town, at any hour of the day or night ; while here,
the uncertainty of shelter is so great, and accommo
dations so difficult to be obtained, that it amounts to
positive inhospitality on our part-a .prohibitum , in
et upon arrivals. Such a state of things is injuri
ous to our interests and a detriment to the public
W1tlneeds no argument to prove that travel avoids
those towns where no provision to meet the needs or
travelers exists; that visits to such towns are connuea
to those who are obliged to go there and that such
places only vegetate without growth and progress,
and cut themselves ou irom inu tuuo "-r;-meat
and expansion that come to more public spinteu
and wide-awake towns.
The need of a hotel, while admitted by all, is
no greater now than it was ten or even twenty
years ago. The great necessity is, not so much
the capital or the men to start the enterprise, as
an entire renovation of our political system. An
administration which shall enlist the support, co
operation and respect of the community, foreign
and native ; an administration which shall do all
it cau to encourage foreign immigration, instead
of shutting it out, as is practically the case now ;
an administration which shall be alive to the ne
cessity of introducing inter-island steam, and not
reject an offer when made, under the plea of no
means, as has been done during the past two years,
without such an administration, it is useless to
talk of our other wants.
Here is w hat is needed : Officers whom the
people can look up to and respect ; legislators
who are fit for the service entrusted to them, and
not thc mere sycophants of those in power.
Strike at the very root of our troubles ; make
these changes ; invite free immigrants from abroad ;
throw open the public lands to any and to all who
will come and cultivate them ; make good roads
railroads if practicable wherever they are needed,
and they are needed everywhere ; stop squander
ing public moneys on such worthless objects as the
two official newspapers ; let private industry have
a fair chance in every direction ; and not drive
away every man who does not bow down and
worship the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
It is idle to talk of hotels, until other and
greater necessities are provided for, and" the way
opened for industry, when she knocks at our doors,
to enter, and find a dwelling-place among us.
When these reforms have taken place, then
there will be rivalry to secure the privilege of
erecting a hotel, and this enterprise will be sus
tained and become a success.
Put against any political jobs in this line;
against the voting of public funds for thc accom
plishment of this object ; against any law that
contemplates abridging individual competition for
the benefit of a monopoly, we shall sternly set
our faces. If private enterprise cannot erect and
carry on a hotel, but must be aided by taxes on
the people, as the government press now is, we
6ay better go without a hotel than use the people's
money for any purposes, not strictly pertaining to
the administration of government, or the internal
improvement of the country.

Death of a Notable Hawaiian. On Tuesday
last, expired in this city, of anuerism, J. W. II.
Kauwahi, aged about 40. He was a Hawaiian who,
in his acquirements', his shrewdness as a lawyer, and
his coolness and calmness of judgment, was unc
qualed among his countrymen, and met foreign-born
lawyers in the forum without disadvantage. He was
also the author of the Hawaiian Form Book the
only book of legal forms ever published in this lan
guage a work that has done more to give Hawaitaus
correct ideas of the way iu which transfers of real
and personal property should be made than all the
teaching they have received on the subject from all
other sources. On Wednesday, the members of the
Bar were convened together, by order of Justice
Hartwell, who in the absence of Chief Justice Allen,
fulfills the duties of that position, when the following
preamble and resolutions were proposed and adopted :
JFktrea, it has pleased Almighty God to remove from our
midst, our brother, J. W. II. Kuuwahi, the eldest native mem
ber of the Hawaiian Bar, a well-known an 1 respected member
ot the Legislature of this kingdom in former years, and also
the author of the " Form Book M in ihe Hawaiian language :
While we bow submissively to the mysterious decrees f
Divine Providence, in thus removing our friend, we here give
expression to the deep sorrow which this event has caused us
to feel, in common with the nation at large, as we are aware
must be tlie case ; Therefore,
Resolved, That each member of the Bar wear crape on the
lelt arm for thirty days, in memory of the deceased.
Resolved, That individually aud as a body, we present to
the widow and fatherless child of our deceased brother, our
sincere expressions of sympathy iu their bereavement, aud
mourn with them.
Resolved, That we will in a body attend the funeral of our
Mb. Editor : I was much pleased with the lecture
of Hon. Mr. Phillips, as published in your last
