SATURDAY, JULY 0.
Annlvcrsai'y of" American
A characteristic feature of lifo in Honolulu has
! always been the observance of the Fourth of July.
As far back as the memory of the oldest inhabit
ant can refcr.it was observed with the same
patriotic enthusiasm as hits been shown in more
recent times. Some ycan ago, we published an
interesting account given to us by the venerable
Captain Adams, of the first public celebration of
tho fourth of July, which took place in 1814
Eftv-six years ajo, and under tho auspices of
Kamehameiia First. It included a feast,' which
was gi?en on or near the premises now occupied
by Sherman Peck, Esq., on Beretania street, and
is said to have been witnessed by over ten thou
sand people. From that day to this, and under
the reign of five of the Kamchamehas, it ' has
been each year observed with more or less public
demonstration. . ......
Captain Adams, wc may remark in passing, is
Btill living. We called on him a few days ago
and found him enjoying comfortable health for an
man. He is now 00 years of age, only four
Jess than that ot the Aaierican Republic ! Though
his sight has railed, lie still retains the active
memory and speech which iio bar' always bad,
and appears to delight in narrating events of
the olden time.
- The fourth occurredhis year.on Monday, and
was as pleasant a day as could be desired. Sa
lutes were fired from the head of Emma street at
sunrise, noon and sunset. At 12 o'clock, the
American Jlinuster Resident received 'the officers
of the Hawaiian Government, the diplomatic
corps, end citizens generally, and entertained them
at a bountiful collation, spread under the shady
trees which ornament the grounds of the Legation.
The following toasts were given on tho occasion :
1. The President of the United States. -
2. King Kamehameha V.
3. The memory of Washington first in war, first
in peace, and first in tbe hearts of his countrymen.
At half past 1 o'clock, the American Consul
and bis lady received the visits of their friends,
'which included ladies as well as gentlemen. This
is a new feature of national anniversary receptions,
and a very pleasant innovation on the old-established
custom, which restricts visits to the male
sex. There is every reason why it should become
a permanent custom, and it will surely be a most
popular one if established. About 2 o'clock, in
response to a call from bis guests for a toast or
something else, the Consul addressed them in tbe
following remarks : .
Frikxds axd Feixow-Citixexs : This sponta
neous meeting is an evidence that you feel as I do,
that on this day Americans should meet together to
celebrate another anniversary of the Independence
of that great nation, the name of which calls up so
many cherished remembrances of loved homes and
absent friends ; of a country endeared to us by a
thousand tender ties and, patriotic recollections, tnd
to many of us made doubly dear by ber recent bap
tism in blood from which, thank God, oar own
Ax erica has emerged with her garments purified as
U the cloth of asbestos after having paused through
the fiery furnace. ' . ,
It is meet that we should thus assemble on the
baptismal day of oar motherland to offer up oar
tribute of thanks to the Sapreme Ruler of the
Universe tur the Llessinga which our country has so
long enjoyed, to refresh our memories with the his
tory of the struggles of that noble band of heroes
who, under the leadership of the iramort.nl Washing- I
ton, fought for the great principles of the universal
hi other huod of man. fur that vital truth that govern-
w - - -
intuit derive their juxt jxjwtrt from the consent of
the governed, and iu defense of the inalienable right
of man to life, liberty and the pursuit ol nappiness,
Ninety-four years ago this day our patriot sires
cave to the world that immortal declaration, based
on the self evident truths which I have just quoted
and nroclaimed the advent of a nation. In defense
of these ririncimes our fathers pledged their lives,
their fortunes, and their Bocred honor. Three
millions of people stood forth as the sponsors of the
. . . . . . . - - .f iL.! I A.
infant iiepuonc ana baptizeu it n rivcre oi meir otss
blood. I have called this Vu baptismal day of the
IleDublic and such it is in truth. It was the tardy
announcement that the child, born on the Oth of
September, 1774, was henceforth to be known as the
Uxited States of-Amekica. for it was on that 6th
of September, by the delegates of the good people of
the colonies, at rhuadelpbia. in tvonunentat con-
cress assembled, that the Union was virtually formed.
Then it was that the gifted Patrick Henry gave a
distinctive name to the people of the nation just
entering upon existence. He said, oppression has
effaced the boundaries of the several colonies: the
distinction between Virginians, Pennsylvanians, Jew
Yorkers and New Entrlanders are no more. I am
not a Virsrinian. but an American." It was soon
apparent that the mother country would not recede
from the nosition she had assumed with regard to
the colonies, although we now know that many of
her wisest statesmen were in favor or acceding to
the iust demands of the American people. The
signs of the impending crisis were unmistakable and

In March. 177o, the clarion voice of the patriot
Patrick Henry again sounded forth resistance to
Ttvrannv. in words that will live as long as the noble
laniruaire in which they were uttered.
' There is no retreat but in submission and
slavery. Our chains are forged ! Their clankings
may be heard on the plains of .Boston. The next
breeze that sweeps from the north will bring to our
ears the clash of resounding arms. . . I know not
what course others may take ; but as for me givt
me liberty, or give me death!" In the following
month came the news of the massacre at Lexington
and the battle at Concord bridge. In May of the
same year the second Continental Congress assembled
at Philadelphia and took measures to carrry ou
In Jane the battle of Bunker hill was fought, in
which the loss of the patriots was 419 to l,0o4 on
the side of the enemy. The various engagements of
tbe year inspired the colonists with confidence, and
greatly increased their desire for independence. On
the 4th of July, 177C, the representatives of the
people gave a tongue to that desire by the announce
ment that " these united colonies are, and of right
ought to be, free and independent States."
Ihe preparation of the Declaration of Indepen
dence bad been entrusted to a committee, of which
Thos. Jefferson was chairman, and, when it was
adopted on that day by the unanimous vote of the
Continental Congress then assembled at the State
House in Philadelphia, the glad tidings were heralded
forth by the pollings of that sacred bell on which,
by some mysterious Providence, had been cast the
prophetic words, Proclaim liberty throughout all
the land unto all the inhabitants thereof." Of the
long years of bitter warfare, of privation and sacri
fice, which followed until at length the mother coun
try acknowledged our Independence, I do not now
propose to give you a detailed account. It is well
for us, however, to frequently refresh our recollec
tions with some of the incidents of that eventful
struggle, ami to strengthen ourselves in our efforts
in behalf of right by contemplating the sacrifices
which our fathers made for a grand principle.
As a boy, I have frequently wandered over the
hills at Valley Forge, on which were encamped the
army of Washington, during that memorable winter
of 1777-78, one of the darkest periods of our na
tion's history, and have listened with eager interest
to the touching recital of the trials of that heroic
band. Standing on a bank, once a part of the prin
cipal redoubt of that entrenched camp, my imagina
tion has again peopled those fields and chesnut
groves with that ragged collection of barefooted men
whose bloody tracks in the snow attested their devo
tion to the cause of freedom, and whose sufferings
caused our sensitive French-American the noble
Lafayette to shed tears of sympathy.
Their rude huts and miserable canvas tents ap
peared to be before me. I seemed to see the bare
footed sentinels pacing their rounds on the frozen
crust of the snow and the Father of his Country
his great heart filled with anguish for the sufferings
of his faithful soldiers moving amongst them ex
horting to constancy, or seated in tbe council room
of that unpretentious house which served as his
head quarters, devising, with the aid of his faithful
lieutenants, the measures which were to lead to
I charge you to impress upon your own minds
and on the minds of your childien, a deep sense of
what we and they and humanity at large owe to
those heroic men. The success of the principles un
derlying that revolution was as a gospel and a reve
lation to all mankind. It was tbe breaking up of
that old idol worship which taught that sovereigns
govern by divine right, and that the will of the peo
ple is not to be considered. Not to keep up old feel
ings of animosity toward that great race from which
we sprung would I teach our children to remember
the sufferings of that winter camp at Valley Forge,
or tbe blood shed on the fields of Monmouth, of
Trenton, of Brandy wine, Vorktown, and a hundred
others, but to impress their minds with the great
truth that he who struggles for tbe success of a
righteous principle has not labored in vain.' In the
stirring words of one of our choicest poets :
" Who braves the battle wins the bride ;
. '. Who dies the death Ibr truth shall be
Alive in love eternally ;
Yut never yet beneath the sun
Was battle by the devil won ;
For what to thee defeat may be,
Time makes a glorious victory."
That the lessons of constancy, self sacrifice and
all the qualities which go to make up the most
exalted patriotism, taught us by the revolutionary
fathers, have not been lost, we have had recently
most abundant p roots.
That perfect wisdom is not the attribute of any
man or body of men we know full welL Oar fathers
bud down their arms when a virtual recognition was
given to the great truths they bad proclaimed, trust
ing that the lapse of a few years and the fixing of a
period, at which should end one of the evils intro
duced under the reign of the parent government
would eradicate the one blot upon our escutcheon
the one sore on the body politic.
We have been forced to again learn the lesson that
there can be no safety in compromising with sin
I low well the nation has shown that it was sound at
heart although into some of its members had crept
tbe insidious poison infused by the demon slavery
let the bloody fields of uetttysburg and the Wilder
ness and a hundred others attest, rorever dear to
our memories will be the names of Grant, Sherman,
Thomas, Sheridan, and of all the other noble leaders
of our victorious legions, who faced the leaden hail
to defend the eternal principles of right on which
our national existence is founded. , ,
Not less sacred to all true Americans will be the
sweet memories of the nameless hosts who perished
on countless bloody fields to preserve the beautiful
structure reared by patriot hands and cemented by
me:r nioou :
"On Fame's eternal comping-ground
Their silent tents are spread j
And glory guards, with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.
Rest on, embalmed and sainted dead !
Dear as the blood ye gave !
No Impious footstep here shall tread
The herbage of your grave
Nor shall your glory be forgot .
While Fame her record keeps,
- Or Honor points the hallowed spot, '
Where Valor proudly sleeps." , -

history of the world did contending armies meet in
the shock of battle, where the importance of the re
sults to be acmevcu was so well understood, or devo
tion to the cause so much the result of a deer con
viction of duty, as in the case of the men who
fought for the preservation of that elorious Union
whose corner stone is inscribed with the words, We
bold these truths to be self evident, that all men are
created free and equal and endowed with certain in
alienable rights, amongst which are life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness.
A brave Christian soldier, who foneht through all
the late terrible struggle, told me that when march
ing ta the conflict he frequently repeated these in
spiring words from the " Battle Hymn of the Re
In the beauty of the lilies Christ waa borne across the sea,
With a glory 00 his visage that transfigures you and me ;
As Me died 10 make men holy, let us die to make men tree,

That His truth is marching on we cannot doubt.
The proclamation of the sainted Lincoln so rever
ently recognized by tbe dusky victims of oppression
as the second t ather or his Country, rather Abra
ham has been nobly ratified by the seals of our
brothers, stamped with the hilts of their sabres, and
enforced by their blades. We have added to it our
confirmation by attaching to the Constitution the
Fifteenth Amendment, and now who shall gainsay
us when we proudly boast that ours is " the land of
the free and the home of the brave." Well then
may we rejoice on this festal day of the Republic.
In the eye of history it is but a little while since we were

proud name of American citizens. But a tew years ago in

I believe that the instinctive love of justice of the people ct

of another, will lead, in both cases, to a satisfactory solution of

Our future ia in' our own hands and, if we are true to the
principles bequeathed to us by our patriot sires, it will be a
glorious one. The vast extent of our territory, which stretches
from the frozen regions of tbe north to the milder latitudes
where winter is unknown, the great range of its productions,
embracing the moat valusble articles of commerce ; its- untold
mineral wealth, manufacturing advantages, " rivers that move
in majesty and the coniplnining brooks that make the meadows
green," its noble boys and secure harbors, make it second, in
natural resources, to no other country in the world. But to
wise and far-seeing statesmen these are not all that are re
quired to make a great nation.
1 have traveled over the fertile plains of the valleys of the
Mississippi, the .Missouri and the Ohio, where if the husband
man tickles tbe bosom of the earth with a spade it laughs with
a harvest, through the inexhaustible deposits of coal of my
native Pennsylvania, where black diamonds spread riches over
the mountains rind through the valleys of that noble State. I
have stood at sight by the side of the streams of molten iron,
Cowing in rivulets of wealth from the furnaces, but until I saw,
but little more than a year ago, bleak barren New EDgland, 1
never fully realized what it was that constituted the true
wealth of a nation : -"

I heard recently an anecdote of a stranger, traveling for the
first time through New England, who, struck by the general
appearance of sterility in the soil and at Ihe same time by the
aigns of prosperity in tbe homes of the people, asked a boy
what they produced on this barren land, where, as he was told,
they shot Ihe corn into tbe ground with a musket and sharp
ened the noses of the sheep that they might feed among the
rocks. The boy said that it was true that it was a poor coun
try for corn, but they used the stones for building churches
and school houses, in which they cultivated a good crop of

Notice having been given on the previous Sat
urday that there would be a picnic at 3 o'clock
P. M., at the residence of Mrs. Paty, in Nuuanu
valley, thither could be seen wending their way
flocks of gaily-drcBsod children, nnd carriages
filled with older people. The Honolulu brass
band reached the grounds soon after three, and
was met at the gate by the children, marching
in twos. The procession, headed by the band,
returned to the grove playing national airs, and
continued some ten or fifteen minutes marching
and counter-marching, till they surrounded the
tables, which were loaded with cakes, sand
wiches, cookies, candies, fruits and lemonade, in
great abundance. After the lunch was over, the
juveniles formed into line again, headed by the
band, and marched to the verandah of the eottage,
where they listened to an extract or two from tho
Declaration of Independence, read by His Honor
Judge Htirtwcll. His Ex. the American Minister
then addressed them in a few words, when three
cheers were given for President Grant, and three
more for King Kamebameha V. Here the band
struck up the national air, 44 God 6ave the King
after which Rev. Mr. McCully made some very
appropriate remarks to the children. It was near
sunset before the juveniles could be induced to
eave the pleasant grove, which for several hours
bad resounded with their merry shouts, with
music and fire crackers, and which had been made
still more attractive witii a liberal display of flags
and evergreens. .
There must bave been at least three hundred
persons present, half of whom were children ; and
it is surprising what an amount of enjoyment to
old as well as young can be compressed into
three short hours, and with so little outlay of
money judiciously expended, ihe ladies who
assisted, with contributions or otherwise, will
accept the thanks of the juveniles and others.
Besides this, there were other picnics, at Wai-
kiki, Waialac, Kali hi, Ewa and in tho valleys
near the city ; and though there was no general
public celebration, the fourth of July, 1870, will
be remembered as a pleasant incident in our life
in the tropics,
During the past week the Legislative Assembly
has been plodding along much in the usual way.
under the management of the Ministry. Most of
tho time has been occupied in discussing various
items of the Appropriation Bill, on which each
member has Ms eay, and wants his way, but is al
ways sure to succumb at last to the Minister. An
amount of $25,000 was proposed for the estab
lishment of hospitals on Hawaii, Maui and Kauai,
which gave rise to a lengthy and windy discus
sion. There is no doubt but that the people in
remote districts greatly feel the loss of the med
ical care of the American missionaries, now inter
dicted by law, to furnish medicines, and hence
the call for physicians. ' In former years, when
natives needed a dose of physic of the harmless
nature of salts, castor oil, or Brandrcth's pills,
they could always get their needs supplied at the
dispensaries of the resident missionaries and
others, generally gratis, according to their means.
But now, they are left to the mercy of the native
quacks who so wretchedly attempt to fill the
places of the ancient Kahunas, who doubtless pos
sessed no little knowledge of the curative use of
herbs, and of anatomy. ,
On Friday, (yesterday) a motion was made
that instead of $25,000 for hospitals, $12,000 be
appropriated for doctors and nurses. It was then
proposed to amend to the Bum of 18,000. These
amendments on a call of the House,' went back
ward and forward like shuttlecocks, some mem
bers declining to vote when their names were
called, and several callings were a tie. Tho item,
after these dizzy knockings about, and long de
bates, at last passed at $12,000. How much is
six thousand a year going to do for the medical
treatment of the people in the outer districts?
Very little, it is to be feared, if indeed, a single
dollar of it is ever expended outside of Honolulu.
On the 2d, the bill to legalize tbe distillation
of rum was most summarily killed, by a vote of
22 to 4, showing that the natives are sound
when the question of manufacturing intoxicating
drinks is referred to them for decision. Could
rum be made here without finding its way into
consumption among the natives, there might be
some plausible ground for advocating the meas
ure. But every thoughtful man knows it can't
The bill to increase tbe tax on real and personal
property from to $ of one per cent., which
passed On the 1st inst., will be generally ap
proved. Under the new law all property must
pay five dollars' tax on every thousand dollars.
It is tbe most equitable tax there is, and the only
proper basis for taxation. On all lands, but
especially on all idle lands, it ought to be fully
one "per cent. This new law will double the
revenue from taxes, and yield over fifty thousand
dollars per annum to the treasury. '-,-. ,
The folly of the Assembly is illustrated in the
discussions on the salary of the Clerk of the
Governor of Maui, in "which a portion of three
davs was consumed. The salarv formerlv was
$800 for two years. It was amended to $1,000,
and passed ; then the next day it was reduced
to $1,000 ; and finally on the third day, restored
to the old figure, $800.

44 Never have I employed a coolie in my family, thou I
that I am reported as advocating the intraduction of this class
into the islands. The man wno inns reimncu
time, have had eoolie on tke brain, for the extract read from
a communication of mine, and printed in your paper, nasnot
the slightest allusion to the coolie question, as all who heard it
read can tesUly. I desire to correct the report of my letter
thus pubUcly made. While making this correction, I am free
lo say, that I see no feature of Hebrew or Araencan slavery in
the coolie system. But aU I wish to say at this time and in
thia connection is, that there was no foundation ui the report ot.
your contemporary, that in the extract from my letter to .me
editor of the Gazette, read before the Legislature. I plead for
the introduction of the coolies, for 1 did no such thuig.
- The above is taken from a letter written to the
Gazette by .Rev. Jonathan S. Green of Makawao.
It will be remembered that Mr. Harris, in his
epeech before the Assembly on the bill to repeal
the Master and Servant Law, read an extract from
a letter of Mr. Green, in support of his argu
ments in favor of the present labor and penal
contract system, the debate also including tbe
coolie traffic. Mr. Harris understood from the
letter that Mr. Green endorsed him and his argu
ments, and so does every one who has read his
letters. If such waa not his meaning, would it
not be well for him to write another letter and
explain what he did mean? He is understood to
be a champion of the labor system as established
by law in this kingdom, and that system coun
tenances the traffic in coolies, which he is " free
to eay,' bears no resemblance to Hebrew or
American slavery, which be once professed to
abominate so heartily. He may not be able " to
see " any features alike in the two systems, but
that is not because there is no resemblance in
them. A law that permits tho sale of coolie
contracts at public auction, as has been done
here, may receive the endorsement of even a vet
eran missionary, but if so, his vision is most
Not long since we published an anecdote which
may afford a clue to the causes that distort our
friend's vision : Two worthy deacons, whom
we will call A. and G. both well esteemed in the
community in which they resided, differed, very
materially, on a question of public interest. At
last, after a warm discussion, A. said, there is
but little uso for us to talk about this matter, for
I have detected the cause of your inability to see
this question as I see it. Of course G. was curi
ous to know what it was. A. quietly took a
pencil from his pocket, and, making a mark in
the palm of his hand, asked G. if he could see it.
Of course I can, was the reply. A. then took a
coin from i,i8 pocket, and placing it over the
mark, arrain asked G. if he could see it. No, 1
cannot. Well, the cause of our difference of
opinion and your inability to see the mark are
one and the same." -
Mr. Green takes occasion to publicly reprehend
tho representative from Makawao, Mr. Kapihe,
lor not voting on the bill to repeal the penal
contract law. Mr. Kapihe is understood to have
been elected under "a pledge to Mr. Green and
others to defend the present labor system. Living
in Makawao where public opinion is not allowed
to have free scope, tho honorable representative
probably did give a pledge. But when be came
down here, heard both sides of the question, and
found that public opinion here outside of the
government purlieus was unanimous in favor of a
change, he, as an honest conscientious man,
would not vote against his conviction of duty, and
did what every Christian should do in like cir
cumstances, declined to stultify himself, and
therefore declined to vote. To see a missionary
holding this patriotic and noble Hawaiian up to
public scorn for acting the part of a conscientioup
Christian, should bring a blush to the cheek o.
every American. To what depths will poor hu
manity stoop for filthy lucre !
The Japanese Colony.
On our fourth page will be found a correspon
dence from the Japan Herald relating to the
Japanese laborers. The letter of Ricwuke and bis
38 fellows is evidently an exaggeration. No one
here believes that they were abused as is there
stated. In fact they were probably better kept
and treated than Chinese coolies ordinarily are.
Wc know this to be the case with the 40 or 50
who were on the Haiku Plantation, as a year ago
we had frequent opportunities to inspect their
condition, and are satisfied that everything was
done for their comfort that could be. But while
the treatment of the Japanese laborers maybe
what is desired, the system under which they as
well as the Chinese are obtained and taken from
their country, is universally condemned. This
same paper, the Japan Herald, from which we
clip these letters, contains the following remarks
regarding the coolie system, under which they
were obtained :
,J No body believes this lot's affirmation in tola ;
but for all that, the coolie traffic is too much like
the infernal slave 6ystem that has cost both Eng
land and America so dear a price in blood and
gold ever to be tolerated by any thoughtful man."
This, from a Japan paper, only goes to show
that public opinion there condemns the system.
The 6ame is the case in China, as was shown in
an extract which we copied, from the Shanghai
Herald, a few weeks Bince.even stronger than the
above language. And now we see, by the very
last mail from Germany that 'J-
" Consul General Sturz has addressed a petition
to the Reichstag, praying that step may be taken
to forbid, the subjects of the North German Con
federation in foreign countries holding slaves, and
to prevent German ships, or ships bearing the
German flag, carrying coolies."
These all go to show that the coolie system is
condemned in every quarter, and -must be done
away with ; and the more enlightened system of
free labor must take its place. ;

Writers at our iblands, much less those abroad,
do not appear to be aware that the Hawaiian
kingdom has been somewhat extended of late
years by annexation. We still read in our geog
raphies that the Hawaiian Islands are eight or ten
in number, which, for all practical purposes, may
be correct enough ; but it should not be forgotten
that the kingdom extends beyond the group
known as the Hawaiian Islands. This additional
domain has been acquired solely by the modus
operandi known as annexation ,V whether with
the consent of the inhabitants thereof remains to
Our Government officials, so horrified at the
bare mention of the word annexation,' allowed
an impudent Yankee to sail quietly out of Hono
lulu harbor a few months 6ince, under the
Hawaiian flag, and take possession of an Hawai
ian Island. We refer to Cornwallis or Johnson
Island, which may prove of more value than all
the land held by the Government on the larger
islands, and which was formally annexed to the
Hawaiian kingdom by Royal Proclamation in due
form, issued on the 27th day of July, 1858.
Kalama Island, was also taken possession of at
the same time, and both are as much parts of tte
Hawaiian kingdom as Niihau is.
In 1857, the late Capt. John Paty, under
Royal Commission, took possession of Laysanand
Lisiansky's Islands. Would it not be well for the
foreign office to issue a list of all the islands con
stituting the Hawaiian kingdom? Otherwise,
some of the more distant and valuable may some
day be gobbled up by avaricious Yankees or
others, and our claim entirely ignored.
The treaty of annexation etill
balance at tbe latest date. The President seems
more in earnest than ever to acquire San Domingo.
The unpopularity of the measure in the West,
says an exchange, and in the Senate does not
shake bis faith in its .policy. The last phase of
the scheme has at least the merit of being the
cheapest and best. The whole cost of the
purchase is now cut down to a million and a half.
So far as mcro price is concerned, if wo consider
the achievement of Seward with Alaska, the
President proposes a good bargain. The United
States would gain something, too, as the producer
of its own 6ugar, coffee, spices and tropical fruits,
which now cost many millions a year ;. but then
this argument loses force, from the fact that
these articles are now obtained by fair exchange
already. Politically, San Domingo looks some
thing like an elephant, with its mass of ignorance
and its chronic spirit of insurrection. Popular
opinion in the United States is averse to the
further acquisition of territory southward, and
this will probably defeat tbe President's scheme,
unless some other great Power should attempt to
take the Samana bene, and it is rumored that
some European Power has offered $2,000,000 for
the bay, in caso the United States don't buy it.

como to be desirable if England or Franco or
Prussia puts in for it.
