SATURDAY, JULY 30.
TheN- T. Tribune remarks tlat the withdrawal
of the English steamers from the line between
Panama and Australia, for lack of freight and pas
sengers, ought to give pause to the Senate Committee
which proposes to report a S 300.000 subsidy to an
American line from San Francisco to the same non
exporting and little importing Colonies. To give
S300.000 to such a line will be a palpable swindle
not only on the American people but on t ie Austra
lian colonists, who have pledged themselves to grant
an equal amount. Americans owe too much and
Australians are too poor to stand such a swindle
The above item exhibite a degree of ignorance
on the part of a leading New York paper, which
can only be accounted for by supposing that it
never has seen any trade statistics of the Pacific,
these islands, or Australia, and takes no pains to
gather information relating to this part of le
world. We published recently an article, show
ing the immense trade and travel of the Colonies.
From those data it appeared that the passenger
and freight money in 1869, between this port
and San Francisco amounted to $166,000, and
between Australia and San Francisco to $685,700.
The passage money paid during the same year to
and from the Colonies to all parts of the world
amounted to $'5,514,000, while tbe freight money
amounted to $24,552,460. Moreover, the im
ports of the Colonics amounted for the same year
to $180,205,571, and the exports to $175,834,
541 nearly one half of that of the whole United
States for the same period.
In its metropolitan verdancy it appears to forget
that the Australian continent is nearly as large
as the whole United States, territories and rocky
mountains included. The area of Australia, as
given in the Tribune Almanac, is 2,945,000 acres,
while that of the United States is 3,578,392
acres. The number of sheep in Australia is over
forty millions, and her product of gold exceeds
that of California.
Because the Panama steam line, undertaken by
capitalists who knew nothing of the business the;
had engaged in, and over a route against which
commerce and travel protested, proved a failure,
affords no just ground for denouncing as a
swindle1 ' the subsidy to assist a steam line
established over a natural commercial track
which has and must continue to draw to it a large
and remunerative traffic, destined to increase with
extraordinary growth every year that it is con
The Ln ha ill a Circuit Curt.
The May term of the Lahaina Circuit Court had
been continued twice, and was finally fixed to com
mence its sessions on Monday the 11th inst.
The Court opened at 9 A. M. of that day, Hon. II
A. Widemann, Second Associate Justice presiding.
assisted by Hon. A. J. Lawrence, Circuit Judge of
the Island of Maui. The calendar of cases was not
large, and was disposed of in the following order :
The King vs. Kelimanu. Charged with practicing
medicine without a license. The case came up on
appeal from the Police J ustice of Lahaina ; was tried
by a jury and a verdict of guilty rendered. Defend
ant sentenced to pay a fine of $100 and costs ; and
to remain in custody until paid His offence was
curing one of his patients till he died, and then offer
ing ten dollars to stop the prosecution.
The King r. Puu and three others. This was an
indictment for a conspiracy to take the life of Captain
Makee, at the Ulupalakua plantation. . The defend
ants were tried by a jury and a verdict of guilty ren
dered. The punishment was graded. Puu. beinir
the most guilty was sentenced to 18 months imprison.
ment at hard labor, the next most guilty, to one
year, and the third was sentenced to six months, lne
fourth , being least guilty, was discharged.
The King vs. Kapibi. This was an indictment for
fixing the endorsement on a bank check for $9. The
defendant was arraigned, pleaded not guilty, and the
cause was continued on motion of the Attorney Gen
eral. W. C. Jones and J. II. Ilavekost for defendants.
The King vs. Paele. This waa an indictment for

wilL Trial by jury, verdict guilty, but as the de
fendant was very old and ignorant, he was sentenced
to six months hard labor only. Attorney General
for the Crown : W. C. Jones for defendant.
Kekelohe vs. Lii. Action of trespass, on appeal
from District Justice at Wailuku. This case was
compromised on tbe payment of $25 by defendant
W. C. Jones for defendant.
Enos v. Pohia. This was a suit for divorce which
had been denied last term, and was taken up on ex
ceptions, and by consent waa to be tried by the pre
siding Justice at the Lahaina term. Testimony
heard and taken into consideration.
Limaloa vs. Akina and Achong Afong. Trial by
jury and verdict for plaintiff for $35. Koii and
others for plaintiff; W. C. Jones for defendants.
Uluhi et al vs. KaahawepakL Action of ejectment.
The jury in this case was called, but there was a
mistrial owing to the absence of a juror from the
ptnel after being sworn, the jury was discharged and
the cause continued.
All the parties that could availed themselves of the
opportunity of applying for a divorce, as they dreaded
the prohibitory effect of the new law.
A Distinction, rtud o Difference
Mb. Editob : I have noticed in a leading article
in the uovernment paper, entitled "Cooueism in
Massachusetts," a number of statements, or rather
misstatements, that demand attention. The North
Adams Chinese policy is probably to be regarded as
a specimen of the future policy of the northeastern
United States, and therefore well deserves the wide
spread interest which it is attracting at the present
time. Therefore any statements with respect to it
will bear to be carefully watched.
Tbe most important point to which I would call
attention in the above-mentioned article the author
of which article evidently regards the fact of the
inauguration of a Chinese labor system in Massa
chusetts as a perfect God-send to the cause of Ha
waiian coolieism is the following statement : " All
tbe so-called odious elements of coolieism are em
braced in the contracts of the Chinese who are now
domiciled in Massachusetts., I do not hesitate, and
no man who rightly comprehends the situation will
hesitate, to pronounce the above to be very far from
the truth. These Chinese have agreed to work for
three years we will suppose for a stipulated amount
of wages though this is not stated. Supposing cow
at the end of tbe first year, the amount due the
employer for transportation across the continent be
ing paid up, these seventy-five men strike for higher
wages. Will they see the inside of Lenox jail at the
county-seat of old Berkshire county? Not at alL
There are enongh aroaQi them who teU thcm
the rights of workmen in a free country, and when
they shall see fit to strike for higher wages they will
either get it, or get employment elsewhere. Suppos
ing again that one of them tires of the service and
fare, and takes the cars for New York or some other
equally-removed place. I doubt much whether any
sheriff or deputy sheriff will apprehend him, and
take him back over the Housatonic road to Adams
in irons. Were, however, the laws of Hawaii, and
the coolie system of Hawaii, introduced there he
would most certainly be bo treated. And there is
the odious element of coolieism left out. What re
mains is the play of Hamlet without Hamlet.'
No, Mr. Editor, there is no coolie system introduced
into Massachusetts, and will not be yet a while. , I
know not what may yet be done, for the demands of
capitalists, like those of laborers, are much the same
throughout the world. Bat I know that for the
Government paper of this city to say that it is so
now will delude 00 one bat those willfully detailed.
One other somewhat important correction remains
to be made. It is said that the Chinese were im
ported br an asrent. ingt as is the case here. The
fact is Mr. Sampson sent hit own partner, Mr.
Chase, to San Francisco, and the agreements are
made with him personally. The Chinese are not
hired out bv anv San Francisco company. I have
the authority of a personal acquaintance of mine,
resident in North Adams, for this, and quote his
" The bargain was made with the men themselves ;
the wages are to be paid to the men themselves. The
Chinamen come to North Adams on the same footing
with other emigrants ; the only difference being that
Mr. Sampson paid their fare from San Francisco,
and that they have agreed to work for him for a
term of three years.
Now I will only add to the above, that so long as
their continuance in that service ia by their continued
voluntary consent, so long they are free laborers ; so
soon as the laws of Massachusetts shall say that they
shall continue in that service or else go to prison, so
soon they are. for the time being, in the position
slaves. Yours truly, Ccetis J. Lross.
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
Ascent of Macha Loa. A party of gentlemen,
amons whom were Mr. Luther Severance of this
island, and Judge S. L. Austin of Onomea, Hawaii,
made an excursion to the summit of Mauna Loa
early in July. The route they took was from Hilo to
Richardson's ranch at Kapapala. There they took
guides and rode on horseback through the forest
belt, to what is known as " the camp, some three
or four miles below tne summit. At wis point
former travelers have always left their animals, and
walked to the summit, under the idea that they
could not be taken on. This party, however, rode
their animals to the very summit, and to the edge of
the great crater of Mokuaweoweo, the first time that
this feat is known to have been accomplished. The
day was clear and beautiful, but though it was mid
summer, the thermometer which stood at 83 0 in the
sun at noon; sank to below freezing point in the
night. In the ravines there was abundance of snow.
Owing to the flatness of the summit of Mauna Loa,
the view is very limited, and it seems as if one was
standing on a vast plain instead of the top of a
mountain, fourteen thousand feet above the sea.
The only object in view was Mauna Kea. Even the
horizon could not be distinguished, the ocean and
sky blending together in the hazy distance. The
fact that travelers can ascend to the very top of this
mountain on horseback (and one of this party
weighed 275 pounds) and feel no injurious effects
from the rarified atmosphere, is worth placing on
record. But from what we can learn, the view from
Mauna Loa does not compare with that from Hale-
Death's Doinqs. The King of Terrors has been
quite busy in our midst of late. In a short period of
time, one after another of our old residents have been
taken away, leaving a blank in the places filled for
years by familiar forms and faces. Last Friday
morning, Mr. Edward Burgess, a resident here ot
some twenty years standing, was suddenly stricken
down with paralysis, under which he gradually sank,
and expired on Sunday morning. Mr. Burgess came
from New York to California in 1846, in Stevenson's
regiment, and on receiving his discharge at the dec
laration of peace, visited this city. Returning to
California, he was among the fortunate few who
gained and kept a handsome property. His only rel
atives are a mother and sister in England, (of which
country he was a native) and three brothers in Cali
fornia. The funeral took place on Monday last, and
was numerously attended. Hawaiian Lodge No 21,
F. &. A. M. of which the deceased was a member,
preceded the hearse, and at the tomb, the solemn
and touching burial service of the Masonic Fraternity
was read by Past Masters Geo. Williams and C. S.
Bartow, of Hawaiian Lodge, assisted by Past Master
J. O. Dominis of Lodge lc Progres de l'Oceanie. The
first regular fire company of Honolulu was organized
in 1850, an old engine having been received here
from Boston by a brig which was wrecked on the reef
outside of this port. Mr. Brandon, who superintended
the building of the Nuuanu reservoir and the lay
ing of the water pipes, was the first foreman, and
Mr. Burgess tbe Assistant Fereman of that first com
pany of Honolulu Firemen.
Tbe Chinese Pibate Case. In an item some time
since we mentioned that one Chinamen had sued
another in the Police Court for the sum of $20, en
trusted by the plaintiff to the defendant to be paid
over to the mother of the former in China. Defend
ant returned here and stated that while in Chinese
waters he had been robbed of this money by pirates,
together with everything he possessed. On his re
turn, however, he had a large stock of goods, with
which he opened a store. The case was decided
against the plaintiff in the Police Court, from which
he appealed to the Circuit Judge of Oahu, who re
versed the decision of the lower court. The defend
ant then appealed to the Supreme Court in banco,
and last Tuesday and Wednesday were occupied in a
pretty thorough examination of the case. Messrs.
Stanley, Dole and Jones for the defendant and Mr.
n. Thompson for the plaintiff. The Court gave
judgment against the plaintiff with costs. Bather
expensive, one would think, all about twenty dollars.
But it was a test case, as there was quite a number
of other Chinese here who had entrusted various
sums of money to the defendant to be paid -to their
friends in China, and were this case decided against
him, a host of others would arise.
The New Divobce Law. Last Moaday the subject
of the application of the new law respecting divorces,
was disussed by the members of the bar before the
Judges of the Supreme Court. The Attorney General
contended that its provisions should apply to all appli
cations for divorce made previous to its passage, and
now pending in the courts. The other members of
the bar, without exception, argued that such an ap
plication of the law would be in direct contravention
of Article 16 of the Constitution, which says emphati
cally and briefly No retrospective laws shall ever
be enacted ;" and also of Section 22 of the Civil
Code which reads as follows : " The repeal cf any
law shall, in no case, affect any act done, or any
right accruing, accrued, acquired or established, or
any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any
civil case, before the time when said repeal shall take
effect.' After a lengthy discussion, in which each
member of the bar spoke against the ground taken
by the Attorney General, the Court intimated that i,t
was of the same opinion with the majority of the bar,
but a final decision was not, however, given.
His Ex. the French Commissioner communi
cates the following particulars relating to the loss of
the French transport L' Euryale :
" On the night of the 4th of March, H. L M.'s
transport ship L' Euryale struck upon Starbuck Isl
and, about 800 miles distant from Tahiti. Tbe
officers and crew were saved, and dispatches, which
were on board, were preserved, and brought back to
Tahiti on the 26th of April, on board the CheverU
The crew were obliged to remain upon the Island for
some time. Ensign Bouue, who visited Honolulu on
board the Alegert, embarked from Starkbuck Island
for Tahiti with three men, in an open boat 24 feet long.
for assistance. He met the Swedish ship Mitsa,
which vessel varied her course toward the Maldea
Islands to effect the safety of the French mariners. It
is needless to comment on this act of generosity.
It is very important to give exact information as
to the exact position of Starbuck Island, upon which
three English and one American ships have been
wrecked before this last one. According to calcula
tions of the French Marine, it extends Bix miles from
west to east, and its west end is marked : lat. 5 6
37m. S. : long. 158 16m. W. from Paris."
English authorities place the Island in S. lat. 5 0
24 ; west longitude 155 0 50 ; nearly due south of
the south point of Hawaii.
Sumvek Raiss. Honolulu and vicinity were favor
ed the past week with copious rains, which were much
needed. The plains of Ewa and Waianae have been
for months so parched and dry as to become bare of
vegetation, and cattle and horses have died of starva
tion. The late rains, however, have reached Ewa,
nt not so copiously as at Honolulu.
The IiEErREssiBLE Coolie Aoais. Last Thurs

estate, who U .now m prison at Hilo on a charge of
deserting service. Jh petition sets forth that the
coolie was induced to go fn board a Peruvian ship at
Macao, in 1865, under representations that he was
going to a foreign land, California mentioned
where in a few years he would accumai':te fortune.
That after getting to sea, himself and other O?olies on
board were presented each with a written ppr.
which was not read to petitioners, nor was it signed
by him. That arriving at Honolulu, Ire, with other
of his countrymen, were sent to the Metcalf planta

the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Secretary at War

mountain, with its golden sunset clouds hanging
around and over it, is a perfect transfer of nature

The selections on our fourth page to-day will
be found unusually interesting. No one who reads
the report of Mr. Beeoher'a sermon, will wonder why
it is that he draws so many thousands to hear him
preach, or why everything he utters is so eagerly
read. He possesses, in a most marvelous degree, the
faculty of uttering truth in such a way as to leave no
room for doubting. What he stys carries conviotiou
to the mind of every hearer or reader. In the June
number of the Eclectic Magazine, will be found the
most perfect likeness of this distinguished preacher
that bos ever been issued.
The Two Republics. This is the title of a newsr
paper published every Saturday in the city of Mexico,
in the English language It is very fairly printed
for the locality, and is edited with considerable spirit
and ability, though in glancing over its editorial
comments on the politics of the United States, we
easily detect a bias against the Republican party and
a touch of sympathy for the "lost cause." The
motto of The Two Republics is a good one" A free
press is the most certain promoter, as it the safest
guardian of a healthy public opinion." One Goo.

among them are Cockatoos, Louries, Kosellas, King
Parrots, Corrillas, Love Birds, Magpies, Pheasants,

Masonic Benefit. Mr. A. II. Havcll (as will be

Mr. Havell's offer was made before Mr. Gregory's ;
but as the latter gentleman purposed leaving in the
steamer, the former benefit was postponed, and will
take place August 11th. Judging from the well
known skill of Mr. Havell as a musician, we doubt
not his entertainment will furnish a rare treat to our

mothers have been puzzled to know what will stop
the earache in children. If the following is true, it
is worth preserving : '
There is scarcely any ache to which children are subject, so
hard to hear and so diUicult to cure as earaohe. But there is a
remedy, never known to fail. Take a bit of cotton batting, pot
unon it a pinch of black pepper, gather it up and tie it, dip it in
sweet oil and insert it in tbe ear. Put a nar.wl bandage over
the head to keep it warm. It will give immediate relief.

Rome. Julv 4. Tbo Council yesterday adopted
the preface arfd the first two chapters of. tbo In

the scheme will be voted on before tbe 15th inst.

The London Spectator says : The Derby this

dingier, and more blackguard than usual, the road

public, too, lost its money. It cboso to believe
that because Macgregor was Ul fastest horse he
therefore would win the race, aud betted upon him
till everybody who understood the turf knew that

came in first, and Macgregor, with three to one
upon him, came in fourth. Moral when you want
