SATURDAY. JUNE 18.
The Assembly Las done little the present festive
week, and we have consequently lew notes re-
i srardin their Droceedintw. On Saturday last,
! the Minister of Foreign Affaire took excep-
tinn- . .,r mmmont, n his lanuae in one of
! ... deUtef. jje Hdllito tliat he called on the God
m remark, ami that
minentg, which bv nu
nf .lustifp tr witness eerta
is sufficient to justify our com
means charged him with profanity. If His Ex
cellency did not express what he intended to say,
he should not complain of comments based on
what he did say.
Again on Thursday, the Minister of the Interior
very injudiciously found fault with both the
reporters of the Gazelle and Advertiser, for
doing what they are unfortunately compelled to
do report his speeches, which are often unin
telligible, and to put them in a shape which will
make thein readable. In doing this, they are
liable to mistakes, but the Ministers have their
remedy in requesting proofs to be furnished to
mein, wnicn uuia papero vim mvtiiys uu, n
debired. We suggest that the reporters give
the Doctor's jargon verbatim and in its original
, 7. , .mi , i
dialect. If this is done, we shall hear less about
their errors, and be able to furnish some model
. r c . M
speeches for future orators to COpy.

Your committee would state on closing our report
that it seems to us that the school, though it has
changed somewhat in character within late years
from the growing inclination of the students to leave
for the larger institutions of learning of the east to
carry on their studies, yet it still holds its place as
the most important institution of learning here, and
is destined to increase largely in the number of its
scholars in coming years.

We take jileaFure in inserting the following
communication, which presents the arguments in
favor of the present coolie labor system, as viewed
by one who is engaged in planting and has long
had the opportunity of seeing its working. The
large portion of our paper devoted to the jubilee
proceedings prevents our commenting this week
on what we consider some of the weak points in
his argument. But those who will read the
speech of Hon. C. J. Lyons, on the fourth page,
will find some of these met with great force.
Mb. Editor : Those who have not been so for
tunate as to listen to the spirited debates which have
lately taken place in the legislative halls of your
metropolis, on the bill to repeal the Master and Ser
vant Law, are nevertheless deeply interested in the
final result of this discussion.
It has justly been said that this is one of the most
important bills of this session. It is a very easy
thing, Mr. Editor, to tear down and destroy, but a
far more difficult thing to reorganize and reconstruct.
It may be very elating and existing for some, who
have no personal stake r.t issue in the agricultural
interests of these islands, to show their forensic
powers and unflinching courage by opposing old in
stitutions and the Powers that be ; but let it be re
membered that this course may result in the utter
ruin of many a laborious and honest planter.
It has been argued that tbe present law in relation
to master and servant is unconstitutional. This view
is based on the supposition that a man cannot
"ship" on a sugar plantation without alienating
his liberty, and this, according to the Constitution,
a man is unable to do. It is admitted, however,
that a man may, without alienating his liberty,
enter into a contract to serve as a seaman on ship
board. Now why this exception? Because, it is
argued, in the case of tbe seaman, there are certain
specifio duties to perform. This, Mr. Editor, is what
we would call a " distinction without a difference."
As a matter of fact, when a Hawaiian contracts to
labor on a sugar plantation, the duties he agrees to
perform, are just as explicit and specifio as those on
ahipbf trd. If anything, there is a greater variety
in tbe duties devolving on seamen than those of tbe
common laborer on sugar plantations. I affirm,
from ample experience, . that the Hawaiian, who
ships ' on a plantation, has a very correct idea of
the specific duties which will devolve upon bim.
Of course, in making this statement, I do not
have reference to those whose contracts are made as
signable. This question of assignments is a qnestion
by itself, and not necessarily embodied in, or de
pendent on the existing law of master and servant.
Several instances have been brought to the notice of
the Legislature now in session, by different members,
of gross injustice on the part of managers of planta
tions and district judges, in obliging men to continue
at labor long after the stipulated term of their con
tract hod expired. The inference adduced was, that
the present law in relation to master and servant is
infamous and ought at once to be abrogated. ThL?,
however, is not a fair deduction. What good law is
there, I ask, but can be prostituted to base purposes
i by following its letter and not its spirit,
! do g1? injustice. As well might it be argued

i tnnlmg pM.r Jack of his just dues, therefore Uncle
Sam's laws, in relation to the shipping of seamen,

, ought to be abrogated. If we come to the real ficts
of the case, we will find that more deeds of infamy
have been dune to the poor sailor on the decks of
Massachusetts vessels, under the cloak of Massachu
setts laws than were ever dreamed of on the planta
tions of Hawaii nei. Dues this however necessarily
damn Massachusetts laws ? Not a bit of. it. The
laws are good but susceptible of abuse. And so it is
with our law in relation to master and servant. The
two must stand or fall together. If the one does not
alienate the liberty of the party contracting, neither
does the other. Nor can it be argued that the im
perative nature of the duties of seamen on shipboard
render it necessary that they should be bound to a
specific performance of certain articles of agreement,
while the entering into of such an agreement would
not be necessary on land.
It la a vvwTT B iav mnttpT. Mr. T!rlitor. for the wise
heads of your metropolis to speculate on new ana

I who are or have been engaged in this business
know that if the changes contemplated in the Master
i an1 servant Law are actually effected, our sugar iu-
I terests here at the islands are doomed.
4 If it be necessary that a master of ship, in time of stonn,
J ,,ave abs,ule c1,ftr over hU men, it is equally imperative
that a manager of a plantation on thes bland have the power

' Peculiar one, an.t any para, el insuiuieu oei-een
these islands and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or any
! other old country, on the score of labor, win not hold true, in
j older and larger countries, there is a superabundance of labor
over and above what is actually in demand.
Here at the islands, in many localities, all the available labor
in already employed. Should this be diverted, uo amouut of
demand would bring the requisite supply.
Again, in the oliler countries above alluded to, owing to the
rijror of the climate and Hie habits of the pesple, the laboring
man must work iu order to live. The laboring man. who is
the father ol a family iu Old or New England, is obliged by
dire tieeensity to labor.
Here in the tropics, the Hawaiian can exist, not live in the
j hundredths of his time baski'nir on the banks ot his kalo patch
true sense ol tlie word, tile year rouml and spend iiinety-nme
I In addition to the stimulus to labor which exists in the older
j C)m,ltries, we find that the people there are naturally much
! more Uidustrious than the natives of these islands. Hence,
the folly of drawing a parallel between thene is ands and Old
and New Kugland. 8upose, Mr. Editor, that the cane crop
' of one of our Maui plantations was fully ripe and beginning to
i deteriorate, and that, in -the absence of any law enabling the
manager to enforce the scilic irfommnce of contracts, all
the p,Bntation h,tnda K,ouid strike for higher wages. W hat
would become of the planter ? The history of strikes in older
i countries goes to prove that it is simply a question of who can
stand it the longest.
A few months delay would ruin the planter's crop, while it
would neither incommode or injure the native laborer. Such
being the case, the planter would literally be in the power of
hit laborers. Nor is this au iuiprobuhle case to suppose.
Many a foreigner has found to his sorrow that though the Ha
waiian is naturally kind and genial, yet when he has the op
portunity of enforcing an exorbitant demand, he will not hi-si-tate
to do it. This is often the result of Ignorance. For in

Waiiike, June "th, 1S70.
The labor question has of late called forth much
earnest discussion ; and many seem to think that the
prosperity of the plantations nnd of the islands is de
pendent upon the way in which that question shall be
decided. But there is another question, which seems
to me much more important : It ia whether the drought
shall continue to increase in severity from year to
year as the result of the destruction of the forests.
Should the destruction of the forests continue for ten
years more, iu the same ratio as for the past ten years,
and the severity of the drought increase in the same
ratio, many of the plantations must be given up.
This result stems to me inevitable. Makawao suffered
from drought last year. Some fields of cane dried
up, and cattle died by scores. Yet there were almost
daily showers in the forests on the sides of Haleakala ;
but they extended no further than the forests ; for
no sooner did the clouds pass beyond, than the radi
ation from the dry and heated ground converted the
rain into vapor, and the base ground was left to be
come more barren and baked.
Wailuku also suffered from the drought ; for tbe
stream furnished not sufficient water for the mills
and irrigation ; yet some were talking about cutting
down the trees in Wailuku valley for fire wood, and
pasture their cattle their. Should they do this they
may expect to see that stream diminish from year to
year, and the cane fields become less in the same ra
tio until at length they are given up to barrenness.
Many other parts of the inlands are suffering
severely from the destruction of forest trees ; and
although planters, graziers, and merchants are inter
ested in this matter, the destruction of the trees goes
recklessly on ; and the prospects of the islands be
Can nothing be done to arrest the evil ? nothing,
to repair it? Some suppose that in the changing
weather cycles rainy seasons will, at length return,
and clothe the arid plains of Hawaii nei with verdure.
But is there any ground for such an expectation ? I
can see none.
On two plantations thousands of trees have been
set out. This is well. It is to be highly commended.
It shows that the owners and superintendents have
enlarged views. that they have regard to future, as
well as to present profiL
For the continued prosperity of the islands two
things seem absolutely necessary ; that the destruc
tion of the forests be arrested, and that millions of
trees be planted and cultivated to take the place of
former forests and groves.
Let planters and graziers ponder this matter, and
engage with xeal in measures which may ensure the
return of the former amount of rain and fertility.

SESSION' OP 1870.
Tiicrsdat, June 16th.
The Assembly met at 11 A. M.
After the reading of the minutes, Mr. Lunalilo
arose to a point of privilege. lie had observed in the
Gazette that he had offered a resolution asking for
100 postage stamps. He had never offered such a res
olution, and never would ; he was not so poor but
that he could buy all the stamps he wanted. Now
he wished that the report might be corrected either
by the editor or the reporter.
Mr. Hutchison (Minister of the Interior) was very
glad that this matter had come before the House.
He had observed that the reporter for the Govern
ment paper was getting very careless and unobperv
ing, not even noticing where resolutions and motions
came Irom. liie paper was iuii vi uiiuw. c
should speak to Mr. Raplee, and see if something
could not be done.
The Clerk stated that the resolution had been
introduced by Mr. Kuapuu, but that Mr. Lunalilo
had amended to insert scissors, tape, &c.
Mr. Lyons also rose to a poiut of privilege. In
The naner was lull oi mistakes, lie
the flti-ette for this week a misstatement had been
made reerardinff the report of the Sanitary Com-
mittee. They had not reported adversely on all of
the petitions considered by them only ou that one j
askiug for hospitals ou each island, and favorably on (
the petition asking for traveling physicians.
Mr. Hutchison (Miuister of the Interior) then
arose to the same point. In the Advertiser and j
Bennett" Own, some misstatements had been made, j
concerning him, which he wished to correct. He
was particularly vehement in regard to the remarks
attributed to him about the military, denying in toto
I the words ascribed to him. He talked at consider
' able length on the various points.
Mr. Kaai introduced a resolution, that as this
House adjourned yesterdny to do honor to one de
nomination of Christians, aud as this is a celebration
d;iy of the Catholics, that we do now adjourn till
to-morrow at 11 A. M.
Preceding the calling of the question, Mr. S. II.
Phillips (Attorney General) introduced a bill to
enlarge the jurisdiction of the Police Courts, which
was read a first time, the rules suspended, read a
second time, and ordered to engrossment.
Mr. Thompson gave notice of two bills : To
authorize the trial of issues of fact in divorce,
chancery and admiralty cases by jury ; and a bill to
amend Section 1420 of the Civil Code. Assembly

day morning early, the squadron of II. B. M.'s war
ships, of the expected arrival of which notice had
been previously given, arrived off this port, 18 days
from Victoria, V. L, and anchored outside the har
bor. This is the second time that we have had a
visit by a number of war ships in a body, the last
being during the Crimean war, when the combined
British and French ships destined for the unfortunate
Petropaulski expedition rendezvoused here. The
present squadron, denominated " the flying squad
ron," is going round the world, visiting the various
naval stations, and relieving such ship3 whose time
has expired, and having touched at the ports of
China and Japan is now homeward bound. The list
as it now appears (one or tw of the original ships
having taken the places of those relieved,) is ns fol
lows : Liverpool, GO guns, Fear Admiral Hornby ;
Pearl, 17, Captain John M. Ross ; Charybdis, 18,
Captain A. McL. Lyons ; Endymion. 21, Captain
Edward Lacy ; Liffey, 30, Captain Robert Gibson ;
Phoebe, 30, Captain John Bythesea. The squadron
will sail hence for Valparaiso at the end of ff.veek or
"Almost a Fire." The Gazette is not quite cor
rect in the facts as to the affair of Monday night
last, when there was almost a fire. An old decrepid
Chinaman occupies a little tenement on the corner of
Smith's lane and Hotel street, where he lives all
alone. Between 10 and 11 o'clock on the night
mentioned, two foreigners, by the names of Clemens
and Bradley were passing along the street when they
perceived a bright light in the Chinaman's room.
Rushing ia, they found the helpless creature lying
on his bed, which was blazing up all around him.
While one carried him out into the street, the other
procured some buckets of water and soon extin
guished the fire without giving an alarm. Had there
been less promptitude of action, the Chinaman would
probably have perished and there might have been
an extensive conflagration.
Sailors ox Horseback are not by any means as
good navigators as they are on the rolling deep, nor
yet when rolling along afoot on terra firm a. But
somehow a sailor, when ho gets on shore, almost
invariably wants to mount a horse and go careering
along at a breakneck speed, without much regard to
where he is going, nor what he may run foul of.
This was exemplified yesterday, when a lot of the
jolly tars belonging to the squadron now off the port,
indulging iu a little racing sport, caused pedestrians
to shrink into door-ways, and those in buggies to
tremble for their wheels, while in several instances
the riders themselves, by some erratic movement of
their steeds, went through processes of ground and
lofty tumbling, singularly enough without injury.
Almost an Accident On Wednesday, a little na
tive boy, riding on a dray, which at the timo was
going at full speed, fell off alongside the wheels, but
fortunately though narrowly, escaped being run
over so narrowly that the wheels took off the sleeve
of his shirt and grazed the skin of his arm.
There was a minor yesterday morning that an
other native boy had been kicked by a restive horse,
that he was holding on Wednesday, and so badly in
jured that he died on Thursday, but our reporter has
been unable to. trace the statement to any certain
source. ttt 1
Steamers Dite. The mail steamer Ajar will be
due here on Monday morning the 20th inet, with

Auckland to June 4th. The Ajax will sail for San
Francisco on the 22d, (Wednesday,) or four hours
after the arrival of the Australian steamer.
Corpcs Christi. Thursday last was the anniver
sary of the Roman Catholic festival, kept in honor
of the Eucharist on the Thursday following Trinity
Sunday. As usual it was observed by the Catholics
of this city by a procession through the streets and
special services at the church, attended by large
numbers of the professors of the Romish faith.
Legislative Adjournments On Monday, the
Assembly adjourned over until Thursday, in order to
make preparations for and to join in the jubilee cele
bration. On Thursday, after a short session, there
was another adjournment for the day, on account of
its being tbe Corpus Christi festival.

forward to the front all the soldiers she can spare.

ruffians and murderers.
