The French and PriiHslan War.
Thcxtraordinary news received by the Moses
Tayforc Wednesday detailing the great Prus
sian victory at Sedan, the capture of the Emperor
Napoleon, and the establishment of a republic in
France was more than the most sanguine admir
ers of the Germans dared to look for.
Our previous dates were to August 20, as given
in our last issue, when there was every prospect
of a battle between the army of McMahon at
Mezieres and the German forces under Prince
Charles and Steinmctz. The battle commenced
on Tuesday morning, August 20, and continued
through Wednesday and Thursday. On the night
of the latter day, the French army under McMa
hon with the Emperor and Prince Imperial, were
collected in or around the fortified village of Sedan,
11 miles east of Mezieres. On the morning of
the second of September the Prussians had suc
ceeded in encircling the place with their forces,
and occupied every hill and eminence with their
batteries. When the Emperor rose in the morn
ing, and from a tower in Sedan looked out and
saw the Prussian bayonets glistening like forests
j of steel in every direction, completely surround
ing the village, he at once made up bis mind to
surrender himself and army to the superior forces
of the enemy, lie sat down and wrote a letter to
King William : As I cannot die at the head of
my army, 1 lay my sicord at the feet oj your j
Majesty" and at 11 a. m. on the 2d of Septeni- !
ber surrendered himself at the headquarters of J
There are very few parallels in history to this j
remarkable ending of a great man's career. During !
twenty years he has ruled France with a success i
which few sovereigns have had, and has made of !
the French a greater and more prosperous people !
than they ever were before. Although history j
will condemn him for engaging in this war with
oat sufficient cause, it will give him credit for a
long and prosperous reign. Napoleon at the
latest date was a prisoner in the citadel of Hesse
Caseel in Germany, supplied with every necessity
that a magnanimous and conquering foe can pro
Tide. "What his future will be no one can predict,
but his star of Empire has set, and he han ceased
to be the ruler of r ranee.
But to return to the battle. McMahon com
menced the engagement with about 150,000
troops, and after three days fighting surrendered
80,000 soldiers, showing his losses in killed and
wounded to have been 70,000. Tbo Germans
went into the battle with 250,000, and lost in
killed and wounded about 80,000. Sedan, where
the last day's fighting took place on September
1st, is a village eleven miles east of Mezieres, with
a population of 12,000. It is also quite near the
Prussian boundary, so near that the fighting was
both on French and German territory.
While the battle of Sedan was in progress,
Gen. Bazaine was not idle at Metz, but made
several attempts to cut his way through the Crown
Prince's forces to join McMahon s army, bat in
each attempt be was foiled aod driven back within
the entrenchments, where he will probably now
be kept till be surrenders. 11 is forces number
about 150,000. For all practical purposes, so
far as the war is concerned, his army is destroyed.
In and around Paris, General Trochu has
from two hundred to three hundred thousand
troops, bat these are understood to be recruits,
and probably are not so well equipped as the
armies which were sent out under Bazaine and
McMahon. The Prussian forces were at the latest
date advancing on Paris, and would be able to
concentrate there not lees than 250,000 men.
The French will never risk the destruction of the
city of Paris by a battle under her walls, but will
evacuate and leave the Prussians to enter and
possess the city.
But now, since the latter are so completely the
victors, there is every probability of peace, and
the first arrival may announce an armistice.
The only obstacle in the way is a political one,
caused by the change in the form of Government
in France ; but this obstacle will be overcome by
intervention on the part of the neutral powers.
Most certainly, the war cannot continue much
longer, as the alleged cause of it (the Emperor
Napoleon) has been removed.

The Proposed Amendment to the
'Master and Servant" X.aw.
The reoolutionista of Maui an dothera of their
ilk have repeatedly charged that the reformers of
our labor system had only tried to repeal the ob
; noxious law ; that no amendments had been pro-
posed or offered. The following Act amendatory
i of the law was proposed by Mr. Martin, member
j from Kau, Hawaii, and was referred to a Special
i Committee of the Assembly, and by them reported
back to that body, where it met a death blow at
the hands of Mr. C. H. Judd, who, acting under
1 the instructions of the Minister of Foreign Rela
i tions, moved its indefinite postponement. The
! motion prevailed ; after which the Vice President
i of that body left his seat and secured the putting
i of the motion to reconsider, which was lost, and
. thus the bill was buried, to be brought forward
i in time and passed with still more liberal amend
i men to. The day of enforcing contracts to labor
by imprisonment, assignments ot contracts,
double time, ruinous advances and other outrages
upon the laborer is drawing to a close.
AN ACT to amexd sections 1417, 1418, 1419 and
1420 or the civil code.
Be it enacted by the King and the Legitlative At
setnbly of the Hawaiian hi and t in the Legislature

ence of some officer authorized ty law to take
acknowledgments, and the employer shall pay such

the date of its passage, and all Acts and parts of
Acts in contravention hereof are hereby repealed.
Tlio Mnsiraerc at Tientsin, Clilna..
Tientsin is the port of Peking, the capital of
the Empire of China. There was a small foreign
population there, consisting of some twenty mer
cantile firms, a Roman Catholic mission, and
missions of American and English societies.
There is an English, French, North German and
Russian Consulate. That of the United States is
represented by an English gentleman. Altogether
there is a foreign population of between one and
w hundred souls. In the Shanghao News
Letter of July 11th, it is stated that the people
of Tientsin, as elsewhere in China, have been
found by foreign residents to be rather unfriendly,
and the officials decidedly but covertly hostile,
and it is supposed have prompted the common
people to commit nets of murder and rapine.
On the 21st of .June last, the people ot lientsin
became terribly excited by rumors circulated
that the Roman Catholic missionaries had been
kidnapping children for the purpose of preparing
medicines from cutting up their bodies. This
rumor was credited by the Chinese, from the fact
that the Sisters of Charity had been in the habit
of giving small rewards to those of their ad
herents who brought children to them, who, once
inside the convent were never seen again. The
Chinaman cannot comprehend the idea of dis
interested benevolence. The piactice of kidnap
ping is a common crime throughout the Empire,
chiefly of female children, for brothels, and it
was but too easy to induce the belief that the
toreign missionaries in their zeal to procure
neophytes $id a view to turn them to profitable
account. On the day above mentioned, a multi
tude of excited Chinese attacked the house of
the French Consul, while himself and family
were at lunch. The Consul, M. Fontanier, and
the Secretary of the French Legation, putting on
their uniforms, went out and tried to disperse
the mob. Not succeeding in this, the CodbuI
proceeded to the residence of the Chinese Military
Governor of the province, surrounded and fol
lowed by the mob. Hot obtaining any satisfaction
from that official, he turned and left the house to
return to his own residence. But while in the
audience chamber, his revolver was fired, whether
by accident or intentionally cannot be clearly
proved, although the News Letter states that
evidence has been received that M. Fontanier
never used his revolver."' However, shortly after
leaving the house of the Governor he was seized
by the Chinese, his uniform torn off, his body
beaten and eventually cut and stabbed with
knives and spears. The eight of blood now
warmed the populace for more. The Secretary
oC Legation was killed in the street, and his
wife, after bravely shooting down several of her
assailants with a revolver, was killed by the blow
of a sharp instrument on the back of the head.
The consular buildings were then burnt and
destroyed. The convent house of the Sisters of
Charity and the French Cathedral were attacked,
the inmates, fa priest and assistant and ten
women), were slaughtered, and the buildings
burnt together with sixty children who had hid
den in the cellar. Every conceivable cruelty that
savage brutes can invent was put in practice on
these martyred sisters. Besides the Freneh, two
Russian gentlemen one an officer with his wife
who were out riding, were set upon by the
mob and killed. The Chinese next turned to
wards the Protestant mission, but the members
of the mission bad fled, and the work of de
struction was completed by burning the houses
and chapels, after which the mob dispersed.
Great excitement prevailed at Shangbae on the
receipt of the news of this fearful massacre, and
French and English war vessels had been dis
patched to Tientsin for the protection of the
foreigners left in the foreign settlement. The
News Letter is very bitter against Mr. Meadows,
the American Consul, who it says was the only
one who seemed to view the whole affair with
unconcern. It asserts, moreover, that he was a
paid employe of the Mandarin, and concludes its
notice of him in these wordi For how long,
O America ! will you keep foreigners and aliens
in your posts of honor and tru6t? "
The Chinese Government had issued an impe
rial proclamation, declaring that a strict inquiry
shall be instituted into the circumstances of this
sad affair, and that the Governor and other local
Mandarins shall be chastised severely for " their
utter want of skill in the fulfillment of their
several duties." It remains to be seen what
action the French and Russian Governments will
take to exact satisfaction for the murder of their
subjects, and for security in the future.
.A. IXIrrii.iiajtriecl Pioeeding.
On Wednesday the habitues of Queen street
were witnesses to a most remarkable scene, no
Jess than the landing of a tile of marines from
the U. S. Ship Jamestown, under Lieut. Cochrane,
who charged upon the United States Consulate
and carried it by force, after a short but gallant
resistance on the part of the Consul and Vice
Consul. The cause of this civil war (on a small
scale) was the refusal by Mr. Adamson, the
Consul, to lower his flag to half-mast.
It will be remembered that about a month
Bince it was rumored that the Queen Dowager
Kalaina was dead, and that upon this rumor the
flags of the British and French legations were set
at half-mast, and were flying that way the. best
part of the forenoon, when the rumor was found
to be false. The Queen Dowager has lingered
along through the month and died on Tuesday
forenoon last, when official communication was
sent from the Foreign Office to Representatives of
Foreign Governments, and, when received, their
flags were set at half-mast. It was noticed that
the flag at the United States Consulate was not
lowered, and the fact became subject of remark.
Mr. Adamson stated that he had not received
official notification of the death of the distin
guished lady, and bearing in mind the mistake
made by the British and Frencli legations, through
lack of official information, he patiently waitei
for the proper notification from his superior
officer, the United States Minister Resident.
On Wednesday forenoon, an officer from the
Jamestown waited on Mr. Adamson and stated
that tho Commander of that vessel ordered that
the Consulate flag should be lowered to half-mast,
giving as a reason that the Queen Dowager was
dead, and that the flag should be so set as long as
the war vessels in tho harbor kept tiieir flags in
that position. Mr. Adamson replied that as the
superior in rank of Commander Truxtun he should
not receive orders from him, but would respect and
obey the orders of his superior the Minister
At a little after noon a file of marines landed
and took charge of the stairway, leading to the
Consulate, while their commander started for the
residence of the Consul with whom he soon ap
peared. Lieut. Cochrane stated that he had been
ordered to land and lower the flag at the Consu
late. Mr. Adamson replied that he would not
permit the act. Lieut. Cochrane stated that he
should be compelled to use force. Mr. Adamson
said he should resist, and with the Vice Consul, j
Mr. Christie, went to the door to prevent the in
gress of the marines, but after a smart scuffle they
yielded to superior force, and the flag was
Soon after the marines had retired the Minister
Resident sent orders deposing Mr. Adamson, and
authorizing Mr. Christie, Vice Consul, to take
charge of the Consulate, both of which were re
The quarrel as it stands between the several
United States officials is none of ours ; but we
may be allowed to protest at the course taken by
the Commander of the Jamestown, in landing a
force upon our shores, as an insult to this Gov
ernment. American interests here cannot be
benefited or promoted by such outrageous pro
jVlieonK. tlio Converted ?liliianimi
Tho Chinese, as is well known, are remarkably
. . .. . j t. t- -
tenacious of the ancient customs and bcheft of
tueir own country, it is uiuecu extremely rare
to find one who becomes a real aud sincere con
vert to the Christian religion, but whenever such
a case does occur, the converted Chinaman is gen-
erally found to bo faithful and zealous. An iu
Etance in point is found in the history of Aheong.
He belonged to the literati, or educated classes
of China, and hia father who was a professional
teacher, having been implicated with the Tae-Ping
rebellion, the family was broken up, and Aheong
wandered off to a 6ea-port. Here he met an agent
who was shipping coolies for the Hawaiian
Islands. Induced by the flattering accounts given
of the Islands, and of the fabulously high wages
to be paid, together with the assurance that the
Hawaiian year was much shorter than that of
China, and that he should be made on his arrival
here a secretary and agent for the other laborers
he signed the contract and came to the islands.
The falsity of the representations of the agent
soon became apparent to him, when he was sent
to labor on a plantation and treated on the same
footing with the coolies. Finding himself thus
deceived and sold," this educated Chinaman as
might be naturally the case with an educated
European or American, became dejected and sad.
This, together with his intelligent face and cor
rect demeanor, so won upon his master that,
drawing from him the story of his life and the
deception which brought him to the islands, he
was relieved from field labor, and put in charge
of the plantation store. In this he showed him
self bo competent and faithful, and so won upon
the good feelings of his master that he was re
leased altogether from the remaining term of his
bonded service, and shortly after set up a store on
his own account, prospered, married a native wife,
and eventually made a public profession of Chris
tian faith. From that time forth he became
prominent as " the converted Chinaman," and la
bored assiduously among his countrymen, as a
teacher and preacher, in which latter capacity he
was commissioned by the Hawaiian Evangelical
Board in June, 1869. Speaking several of the
numerous dialects of China, he also was able to
preach quite fluently in the Hawaiian, besides
possessing a very fair knowledge of English.
The foregoing statement of facts is mostly
gleaned from a letter by the Rev. Titus Coan, of
Hilo, which we find printed in a recent number
of a religious journal, The (Chicago) Advance.
We may add that Mr. Aheong and his family
left here for China last spring, with his Hawaiian
wife and children, with the intention, however,
of soon returning to thia, once the land of .his
exile, now the land of his adoption. He came
here first, to all intents and purposes a slave, bis
second advent will be in the character of a free
immigrant. The representations which he will
undoubtedly take the opportunity to make to bis
countrymen as to the system of labor and the con
dition of coolies at the islands, may tend in no
email degree to promote what all must concede as
desirable, an immigration of intelligent free la
borers, instead of a traffic in bonded humanity,
cheated into promising they know not what.

character of Mark Antony and Julius CBar on
Monday next, the 5th September, and after that I
shall probably appear in December at the Boston
Theatre in a grand Shakesperian revival. In the
interim I shall probably visit dear old England to
say farewell forever, then devote & few years to my
profession in America, at the close of which I shall
seek out some lovely climate and delicious society
(and why not Honolulu?) where I can spend the
evening of my life in peace and rest
"Rest" when the journey's done
We shake the dust from off our weary feet.
And fling us down on grasses dewy sweet,
Free sheltered from the sun,
Yielding ourselves unto your influence, blest.
Rest rent delicious rest. Tom Hood, Jr.
I really must fraukly confess that I love Honolulu
better than aDy place I have ever been in. I have
made more money elsewhere : Victoria was a gold
field to me, and the people as generous as the air,
but I was worried by a few waspish knaves. I liked
Sydney immensely, for, in addition to the kindness
of the citizens, the brave Royal Tar and his crew of
British sea lions, took a warm interest in me ; but
Adelaide was always my favorite of the delight
But in all these places I came not as a stranger as
I did to you. Scarcely a living soul had ever heard
of me in your beautiful islands, and yet every hand
was stretched forth in welcome, and my nightly
labors were made sources of infinite pleasure to me
by the presence of ail that was refined and intel
lectual. It was also in Honolulu that I received
perhaps the crowning compliment of my professional
career, when my first American audience, in the
shape of the Jamestown's noble boys, saluted me ns
their countryman and bestowed upon me a legion of
honor, inscribed with a priceless sentence. Oh happy
days, good boys, God bless and protect them wherever
I am so glad to find that the mail service is now
established between this country and the Colonies
via Honolulu. It must be of such infinite service to
your city, and of such vast service to the mighty
community of England and her Colonies. A good
style of ship of course is necessary. I hear great
complaints in that respect from travelers at the dis
comfort of the Australian packets. It cannot be the
fault of the captains, for Grainger, Paddle, and
their compeers, are the best seamen in the world,
and so voyagers gladly testify ; but the fact is you
want really good large vessels, furnished on the
American plan of lnxury and comfort, and truly the
Americans can give every other nation a long start,
and beat them hollow in that respect.
The Bleeping cars on the Pacific Line are instances
of this. Never was there anything more delicious
than the comfort of these wheeled palaces. Every
thing is sweet and clean, the attendance perfect, the
conductors gentlemanly and liberal, and the whole
journey along this wonderful track is simply a deli
cious picnic. By the courtesy of the powers that
be, I was allowed, with several other persons of
sporting proclivities, to take a shot or two at buffalo
or antelope, and several long eared rabbits now
bleeching on the plains are memorials of my prowecs
with my central fire Wertly Richards. I did not kill
any but such " small deer," but my companions
bagged a victim in the shape of an antelope which
marie a capital luncheon a day or two afterwards.
San Francisco is really worth a visit if only to see
what pluck and energy can do in the stupe of bricks
and mortar. Tbo hotels are marvelous. The Cali-
! fornia Theatre magnificent, and the managers two of
the finest hearted gentlemen and the best actors in
the universe. Whistling Jack," ray gallant Hono
lulu mount, which you will remember I took with
me to 'Frisco, was the ndmiration of Montgomery
street He quire enjoyed the trip in the Ethan
Allen, and was on his legs in three days, none the
worse for the voyage. John McCullough, the man
ager of the theatre, to whom I loan him, is riding
I him now, and intends to train .him for the stage I
believe, bo look out for a grand semi-equestrian
drama, in which " Hawaiian Jack " will be an
nounced in large letters. Mr. Barrett is at present
playing True as steel " at Niblo's, and a horse is
introduced, but he cannot look at " Jack " iu either
beauty or behavior.
Sacramento is a charming city and the people are
in accord with the place. I gave readings in a
beautiful church in it. On the Fourth of July I
wore my Jamestown medal to the intense admiration
and delight of the Sacrameutan maidens,
Salt.fake City received me cordially. I like the
place aud the people Whatever one may say of the
system, there is one thing to be said in its favor.
There is no appearance of vice or immorality.
Drunkenness is unknown, while law and order pre-
vail unostentatiously. President Young is a large
hearted liberal eeulleman. I am sure actors ought to
admire him, for ho has built a capital theatre The
taberuacle is a remarkably fine building, and from
its lofty dome the beautiful "city in an orchard"
looks like a perfect paradise.
I have been absolutely charmed with everything I
have seen along the route, and I only wish I had
time to give you a better and more lengthy descrip
tion of- my travels since I left you. Pray accept my
best remembrances and my compliments to all my
old friends. Always most truly yours,

Tli Hawalin Times.
After exhausting its thunders of rhetoric upon
the manner and kind of food sent out by Chinese
restaurants, in a previous issue, the new journal,
the Times, on Tuesday last, gives us the leading
article which should have been a sequence of the
first number. This last article and its prede
cessor, the introductory, sufficiently define the
position of the new journal before the public.
It commenced in its first issue by saying that it
had no independence of principle, but would be
ready to advocate any measures or principles
whatever, if paid for doing so, no matter as to
the conscientious convictions of the editor, pro
or con. Consequently, when the editor in his
issue of September 20th assures us that he is
" utterly unable to discern the slightest grounds
for making any alterations in the Master and
Servant Act," we have the best of reasons,
founded upon bis own statements, that this
declaration is based upon no particular conscien
tious convictions of principles as to duty as a
public journalist. Tho very fair and natural de
duction is, that in accordance with the views set
forth in his inaugural, the editor of the Times
has sought and obtained his price. Indeed, it is
stated that shortly after the issue of Tuesday
last, the editor was seen within the precincts of
the Government premises, in close confabulation
vth the members of the Minintry. " Were I
a betting man,' said one in our hearing, I
would wager that the Times, if it continues
on its present course, will be subsidized by the
Let us suppose a case in comparison with the
one under consideration. Some one of we Ila
waiians take it into our heads some fine day to
emigrate to Australia or New Zealand, and after a
residence there of two or three weeks or months,
Bet up a newspaper, in which, plunging at once
in medias res, we severely berate the colonists Tor
their grumbling " against some of the laws
then in force, and assuming at once that we know
all about the working of those laws though we
may never have gone one mile beyond Auckland
or Sydney undertake to instruct them as to
what is right and wrong in the patter. What
would be the probable reception we would meet
with from our friends of the Antipodes? It
would no doubt be said to us 44 Sir, what do
you know about our internal affairs you, who
came here but yesterday, and very likely scarcely
heard of our country from any reliable source
until you landed here? My dear sir, keep your
advice to yourself, for, until you become posted
by actual and personal observation of us and our
surroundings, we must perforce put you down in
the list of thope witlings whoso self-conceit does
not rise to the dignity of impertinence ! '
In the first issue of the Times, the editor had
no principle to advocate. In the third he sud
denly finds a policy if not a principle through
w hat kind of process we leave the public to con
jecture. General Troehu.
The man to whom Franco now looks for that
genius which is to lead her to peace is Trochu,
the General who is in command as military
Governor of Paris, under the Republic. Marshal
Bazaine, one of the lieet judges of men, pays that
44 Trochu has tho triple talent of writing, talking
and fighting." He has long been known to
eminent military critics as the strongest intellect
in the French army, and intellect is what is
needed now to guide the French out of their de
plorable difficulty. Through a series of the most
stupid blunders, the armies of Fiance have been
defeated, separated and cut off from their main
source of supplies, while the Prussians are march
ing on Paris itself. Unless Trochu can save what
remains and turn the tide, which is now surging
over France, carrying dismay everywhere, no
other man can do it. He is to France now what
Grant was in 1804, the nation's hope. In ap
pearance, Trochu is described as being of middle
size, elegant in figure, but wifli nerves and sinews
of iron strength. His face is full of intelligence
and pleasing, his forehead broad and eyes small
but brilliant and sparkling. He is evidently
4 the coming man of France."

3Ir Adamson's Tleoall.
A late mail brought advices that President
Grant had nominated a Mr. Lowry of Pennsj.
vania, as United States Consul at this port. We
bdieve we express the opinion of a very large
majority of our citizens, when we say that the
news of the appointment of Mr. Adamson's bug
ctssor caused profound regret. In the year that
Mr. Adamson has held the position of Consul
! has won the respect and esteem of our best cit
izens, because of the conviction, often publicly
expressed, that he had honestly, conscientiously
and fearlessly performed the duties of his office.
Because he meted out full justice to the seamen
of the American whaling fleet, he has been bit,
terly opposed by the masters and owners of the
fleet. Under their blows, not fairly dealt, he
has had to succumb. The New Bedford delega.
tion so manipulated the 44 Committee on Com.
merco" of the United States Senate, that Mr,
Adamson's appointment was not presented to
the Seriate for confirmation before adjournment,
for this cause, and thia only, he must leavo this
Mr. Adamson's issue with the whaling mag.
nates of New Bedford, has some features in com.
mon with our issue with the Sugar Planters.
It is tho oft repeated struggle between labor una
capital, and Mr. Adamson has manfully battle.!
for the rights of the laborer againut the ahuoi
which seem to be inherent with power as rorrc
sented by capital. Wo should much prefer to
be in Mr. Adamson's position rather than that of
the parties who have so unfairly and persintentlv
sought his removal. The best wishes of this
community go with Mr. Adamson.
