To tlie Patrons of tills Paper.
"With this issue of the Pacific Commercial
Advertiser, my connection with it, as Pub
lisher and Editor, cea6ee. The paper, together
with the types, presses, material and stock, has
been sold to Messrs. Black & Auld, who pro
pose to carry it on in connection with the book
and job printing business, for which they now
possess first-class facilities.
In making this transfer, it is proper for me
to state to its many staunch friends and
liberal supporters, who have stood by it from
the first with a loyalty which could not be
surpassed, that I have been desirous for the
past two years of selling the paper and print
ing establishment ; and with this view adver
tised it for sale some time since. Negotiations
for this purpose have been several times pending,
but with no satisfactory result. The offer re
cently made, which has resulted in a sale, was
so liberal and accompanied with such guarantees,
regarding its future course, that all objections
on my part have been overcome, while the
interests of its patrons appear to be well secured.
I ought also to state, that the recent action
of the Maui resolutionists and the withdrawal
of four or five names from the subscription
1st, have in no way inSuenced the sale, un
less in securing a more satisfactory price- than
might otherwise have been obtained. Recent
assurances that I have received from planters
and others, endorsing the views of the paper
on the labor question as sound, have satisfied
me that its course has been generally approved.
My only regret iB that I could not continue
on, at least to the close of this volume, in de
fense of what I believe to be the only sound
basis on which our labor system should rest.
But the opportunity offered of disposing of
the paper, on my own terms, was one not to
bo rejected. I
From the commencement of its publication
in 1856, my sympathies have been warmly en
listed in behalf of the laboring classes, both
native and foreign. This sympathy has perhaps,
drifted the paper, at least in the view of some
of its firmest supporters, into apparent antag
onism to their interests. Nothing, howevei,
can be more erroneous than this view ; for, in
the opinion of all sound political economists,
the improvement of one class must benefit
every other class in the community. In other
words, 1 am, and hope ever to be found, among
the advocates of the moral, social and political
elevation of the Laboring Classes the corner
stone on which reet republican institutions and
all sound government.
My successors, who are young and enterpris
ing men, are fully capable of judging what
course is best to be pursued in order to insure
the future success of the paper. They will soon
learn that its firmest supporters embrace a large
proportion of the mechanics and workiagmen
of the kingdom, andw that toidentify it with
their prosperity will be the surest road to suc
cess. Should the paper cease to reflect the
views of its intelligent supporters, it will not
be long before another journal will be demanded
and sustained, which will utter no uncertain
Bounds. The day has passed by when the press j
can remain long muzzled, in tins or any other
I can wish my successors no greater prosper
ity than that, at the end of another fifteen years,
this journal may show, in their hands, as much
improvement, and that it may as well supply the
wants of the foreign community then resident
on the islands, as it has during the first fifteen
years of its existence.
In conclusion, 1 most heartily thank all who
have aided me with their pens, their purses, or
advice, in maintaining successfully through
many years, unaided by subsidies from any
quarter, a journal devoted to the commercial
prosperity of Hawaii nei.

Submarine) Volcanic Eraptioss and
Island in (be South Pacific.
Editor Commercial Advertiser : Sir Captain
Preble, American ship Ellen Goodspeed on his pas
sage from Hamburg to this Island by way of Cape
Good Hope, reports " that July 5th 14 A. M. they
experienced a very severe shock of an earthquake
lasting about one minute and a half, causing the
vessel to tremble violently as though she had struck
bottom. At daylight made Ravul or Sunday Island
lat. 29 15' SO' south, long. 177 54' 52" west,
and saw an active submarine volcano near the shore
in the South Bmjs, heaving up columns of steam and
smoke to the hight of 2 or 8,000 feet with such force
that the wind did not appear to affect it any until
lost in the clouds. The water had a singular appear
auce, that of inky blackness for two days afterward.
The steam issuing forth from the volcano was so
dense as to obscure the heavens for a distance of 50
miles around ; causing, apparently, the wind to blow
from every quarter toward the volcano. Found no
difficulty in getting up to the Island, but much in get
ting away the wind heading off on every tack ;
was in sight of the Island 33 hours.
Finly in bis S. P. Directory reports but one Island
in this immediate vicinity ; Capt. Preble saw nine
distinct elevations within a distance of 4 miles run
ning N from a quarter to half a mile apart and
some of them 200 feet high.
Thinking this might be interesting I respectfully
forward for publication.
Yours truly, W. L. R Johnson,
Baker's Island, Aug. 4, 1870. Superintendent.
Mark Twain Again. On the occasion of his
marriage recently with the daughter of a wealthy
Western merchant, Sam. L. Clemmens, (Mark) was
presented by the bride's father with a handsome
mansion, completely furnished, and a check for
$40,000. Now we read that the old gentleman has
recently deceased and left Mrs. Clemmens a quarter
of a million dollars ; in the shape of a coal mine,
which yields at least that profit yearly. But these
freaks of fortune are as nothing, in Mark's opinion,
compared with the honor of having & fast trotter
named after him. Just think of the famous trotter
" Mark Twain " making a mile in 2:17. Mark can
now run for Congress, with a fair chance of distanc
ing all competitors.
Chako the Giant, baa been on exhibition for
several days past, at Buffam'a Hall, having arrived
by the Motes Taylor, en route for Australia.
Standing eight feet two inches high and having a
wife of the ordinary pigmy size of Chinese women,
they make a queer spectacle. It is said that Chang
had to sleep on the cabin floor of the steamer, there
being no berth long enough for him, and that,
sitting at table, be dispensed witn tne services or
waiters, the length of his arms enabling him to help
An Axiom. Geo. Alfred Town send says : " There
is no friend to a journalist like an enemy. The
meaner the attack the more inscrutably it comes to
benefit" William Cobbett said : " Every mean
enemy brings me a new thought, two new friends,
and five new subscribers." We commend this to
the consideration of our ill-natured friendt. It has
been our experience. Their efforts have been crowned
with a signal Buccess.
Down with the Dust, said everybody yesterday,
who was compelled to walk the streets. Dust in your
eyes, mouth and nose, in your whiskers, np your
trowsers legs, and even your crinoline did not escape
tbe ever pervading nuisance. O, for the old time
rains to down with the dust !
NOTES OF THE WEEK.
A Belated Nimkod. Last Monday, one of our
citizens, a well-known sportsman and a dead shot.
was on a ducking excursion near Halawa, in com
pany with another gentleman. The sport had been
lively, and some eight brace of ducks had been
bagged, when he determined to make one more trial
up the golcb, forgetting, in the excitement of the
genuine Bportsman, that night was coming on. He
succeeded in killing another bag-full of birds, and
undertook to retrace his steps to the plains below.
But the sun had set, and pitch darkness came on, so
that he was uncertain of the way, and, fearful of
walking over a precipice, quietly resigned himself to
sleep out. After sleeping about one hour he was
aroused by falling stones from the pali above, caused
by the wild pigs, which abound on the mountain,
turning up the ground for roots. Creeping along
cautiously, not knowing what moment he might
tumble off a ledge and be dashed to atoms below, he
came to a shelving rock, where he lay until morning,
getting what little sleep the myriads of mosquitos
would allow, and arrived in town Tuesday morning
all right. Considerable anxiety was felt on account
of his disappearance, and numbers of people went out
in search of the belated niinrod. Fears were ex
pressed that sunstroke or some accident had happened,
but it was only an excessive passion for wild ducks,
which at this season are plentiful and fat.
A Falsehood Nailed. A report having been
in circulation to the effect that the recent fires on
the Hobron Plantation were instigated by articles in
the Kuokoa newspaper ; we are authorized by
Marshal Parke to state that on his recent visit to
Makawao, having heard the same rumors, he closely
questioned eleven of Captain Hobron's laborers
(each having been examined privately) as to whether
they had ever read or heard of anything in the
Hawaiian newspapers instigating laborers to resist
their masters, or in any way to create disturbance.
When interrogated, they appeared surprised at the
question, and replied most distinctly that they had
never seen or heard the first word. Thus another of
the low and base slanders started here in Honolulu,
for circulation among planters, with the design of
exciting them against our papers, is proven to be
false, and must recoil on the heads of the originators.
A Distinguished Visitor. By the Motes Taylor,
a number oi passengers arrivea en route ior new
Zealand and Australia. Among others we notice
the name of Sir George Grey, G. C. B., formerlyN
Governor at the Cape of Good Hope, and latterly of ij
Xew Aeniaua. uuuer vue Aoerueen ministry irom
. - rr i , TT 1 ii . 1 j c
1852 to '55, Sir George was Secretary for the Colo
nies. Twice as Governor of New Zealand, once of
Queensland, and once of Cape Town, besides having
filled the office of Colonial Secretary, Sir George is
eminently qualified to speak as to the advantages of
the California line to the Colonies, which he fully
endorses. He is a well-preserved looking gentleman
of some sixty years, and as we are informed pro
ceeds to New Zealand iu an unofficial capacity, to
settle some private business. Sir George expresses
himself delighted with the Pacific Railway.
William Cullen Betant, the able and accom
plished editor of the New York Evening Post, for
the past forty years, has now, after the age of three
score years and ten, given to the world a new trans
lation of Homer's Iliad. Good judges say that in
his translation of this wonderful poem, a fresh
treasure is found, in exhibiting the beauty, power,
elegance, simplicity and strength of the English
language. Senator Sumner, himself one of the most
accomplished scholars of the age, says that " Mr.
Bryant's Iliad is incomparably the best ever made."
This is high praise, when we remember how many
great poets have linked their names with that of
Homer. Bryant is now uear seventy-six years old,
but hale and vigorous as at forty, with a step as
quick aud elastic as that of youth.
A War Bulletin. Fully half an hour before the
express papers and mail matter were received at the
Post Office last Wednesday, the door of the Book-
8tore wa8 covered with a large Bulletin, giving full
particulars of the important news brought by the
steamer. It was immediately surrounded by an
excited crowd, aud the wonder was expressed as to
how this interesting and carefully prepared Bulletin
could have been got up so soon. It seems, however,
that the publie are indebted to the forethought of
our townsman, Mr. S. G. Wilder, who came passen
ger by the steamer, and who prepared the Bulletin
on the passage. It was a great convenience to the
press as well as to the public.
EST In New York the decoration of horses with
sun bonnets is being carried on this summer with
an elaboration that bids fair to convert the manufac
turing of th"em into a separate branch of business.
Bucephalus' bonnet (which is in fact a hat) is made
of various kinds of cloth, is elevated about an inch
above the equine head, so as to allow a free passage
of air between, and covers the space between tbe
an i rani's ears, by which appendage it is kept in its
place by means of two boles, that give lodgment to
those organs. This is a new idea, and very suitable
for introduction into these islands. Where is Ward
or Jerome T
Tue Times' Blunders. It says that Mr. A. Rob
inson, agent for Chang, the giant, was the agent for
Mrs. Anna Bishop, and was with her when she and
her troupe were wrecked in the Indian Ocean. Now
it happened that Madame Anna Bishop was ship
wrecked in the bark Libel le on Wake's Island in the
Pacific Ocean; that they did'nt sail 418 miles in an
open boat from Madras to Singapore, but went 1000
miles to Guam, and from thence to Manila, having
been forwarded thereto by the Governor of that
Next Mails. Tbe bark Ethan Allen was to sail
from San Francisco, September 12 to 15, and will be
due about October 1st, The bark D. C. Murray
would leave September 20 to 24, and will be due here
The bark Comet and ships Sea Serpent and
Frank Flint all left San Francisco before the
steamer, and probably have no mails.
The equinoctial storm, which old salts always
look for about this time, appears to have burst on us
in tbe shape of a heavy gale of wind, accompa
nied with rain squalls. Should the wind veer a
point or two further south, it will probably give us
an abundance of rain, for the atmosphere is warm
Pell's Island. This is laid down on the charts as
" doubtful." The brig Kamehameha V. looked for
it in vain. At Laiason Island, near Laiasinsky Isl
and, were found a great plenty of birds, fish, and
turtle, and some birds resembling the Java sparrows,
some of which were brought here.
Whaling Directory. At the Bookstore will be
found for sale a small volume issued by Taber & Bro.
of New Bedford, with the above title, giving the
signal of each whaler, with the owners' names, and
other information a most valuable band-book for
all concerned in whaling.
Sale op the Bank Exchange. The liquor and
billiard saloon known by the above name, was sold
at auction on Thursday last, together with the stock,
furniture. &c, and brought $6,100. Mr. G. C.
Siders being the purchaser.
Rear. Admiral Rowan has been appointed by
President Grant, to be Vice Admiral, to succeed Por
ter. Rowan, who has been with the Asiatic fleet, is now
on his way to Washington to assume the duties of
his new position.
We would call tbe attention of young men
desirous of obtaining a commercial education, to the
advertisement of Rev. Mr. Searle. Such a school as
he proposes to opn, has been much needed here.
Auction Sales. We would call the attention of
our readers to the numerous notices of auction sales
to come off next week. Everybody will be sure of
finding something there, to supply his wants.
Subscribers and advertisers in any part of
Australia will have their wants attended to, if orders,
are sent through the pursers or Captains of the
A Gem. Lovers of the fine arts will be richly re
warded by a visit to Hoffmann's drug store, where
there is now on exhibition a painting by Mr. George
H. Burgess. t
New Lodge or Good Templars. From Maui
we learn that a new Lodge of L O. G. T. has been
instituted at Wailuku, to be called tbe Iolani,
Charcoal akd Sugar Redivivus. Some weeks
since the Gazette, and others of the sugar swindle,
were jubilant over an item which they found in the
Alia California, which declared that the sugar case

Oar advices on this subject state that the sugar case
was not decided by the Circuit Court up to the Cth
inst. ; that the case was argued and submitted on
briefs ; that Judge Field was in Washington and had
not been beard from on this subject ; that the Alta

It certainly bears a strong family resemblance to the

Chart of Pearl River Extraxce. At Mr.
Flitner's store can be seen a well-executed chart of
the entrance to Pearl River, ten miles from Hono
lulu, surveyed by Capt E. Wood, and drawn by
Thomas 0. Thrum. The reef is quite narrow, less
than 200 feet across, inside and outside of which
there is deep water. The depth of water opposite
Puuloa varies from 15 to 22 fathomt, and the Great
Eastern could moor along the banks. Capt Wood
thinks with Wilkes and Beecher, that a sea wall
constructed west of the channel, so as to turn the
tides through the entrance, would of itself tend to
deepen and keep it clear. The expense of opening
this harbor to the commerce of the world could not
be very much, perhaps one hundred thousand dollars.
A Chicken Thief. Last Wednesday a native man
was convicted of stealing one dozen chickens and sen
tenced by the Police Magistrate to one year's impris
onment at hard libor. In the course of the evidence
it appeared that the chickens were stolen on Saturday
night and offered for sale on Sunday morning, the
witness stating that the custom among the petty
marketmcn was to buy and sell on Sunday ; " But,"
said he, " this rule only applies to Honolulu, we
-can't do such things outside of this district." So
much for our Sunday law.

Horror of I he Middle Pasoagr.
The following communication was written for
publication in the Gazette, but owing to want of
space (although it treated its readers to an entire
page of white paper,t it was declined. Tbe denial
made in that paper regarding tbe truth of the state
ments referred to, renders its publication imperative,
in justice to Rev. S E. Bishop, the Friend and the
Advertiser. We offer this statement of facts to those
who have so vehemently maligned and abused the
parties who sought to relieve the Chinese on board,
and who succeeded in securing the freedom of the
Chinese which were landed, for their more mature
and deliberate consideration. This is the traffic which
is supported by a leading mercantile house. A con
cern that is said to have surrendered the agency of a
line of steamships, because, forsooth, it would ncccs
sitate the labor of their clerks on the Sabbath. Con
sistency is a jewel rarely met with in this latitude, at
this time. Editor P. C. AA
Mr. Editor : Having been requested by a num
ber of our leading citizens, merchants and others, to
make a statement as to what I saw on board the ship
Doloret Uarle, I will now give, in as few worJs as
possible, my experience while on board that ship.
I went on board that vessel the day after her ar
rival here, in the prosecution of my business, and
remained on board about one hour. In that short
space of time I saw one of the coolies, a boy, seized
by an officer, thrown down and his head pounded
upon the deck. He was then allowed to get up and
while so doing received a kick that sent him sprawl
ing bis length upon the deck, the poor fellow then
made his escape moaning pitoouily. I saw another
coolie attempt to come on deck, when be was attacked
by the guard who kicked him in the bead and drove
him back below in the most brutal manner ; I saw
others struck by the guards. The guards carried
ratans or a cat-o-uine tails in their hands.
I also saw a sick man taken from forward and
brought amidships, being supported on each side by
a brother coolie, and followed by a guard who pushed
along and whipped his legs to make him step quicker.
The poor fellow wore only a pair of pants and they
were saturated with bis evacuations.
N The siirht was so repulsive and heart mokeninz that
t turned away and did not see what disposition was
,inadc of him.
As for the cleanliness of the ship between decks, I
cannot say, as I did not go below ; I made the attempt
twice but was driven back by the stench, which was
intolerable. The mate seeing my retreat laughed and
said the stench was nothing then compared to what
it was in the night when all the coolies were fasten!
K below. He assured me that he could not hold his
head over tbe hatchway a minute during tbe night
wUhout vomitinir. and from the ezterience I had Just
lad I could easily believe him. There was an Iron
Jr barricade between the main and mizzen masts, with
an iron door on either side of the deck. One of
these doors was kept open and guarded by a sentinel
armed with a musket with bayonet fixed.
There were no barricades forward. All the hatches
had heavy iron gratings which were fastened down
by clasps and padlocks. I was told that a third of
the coolies were allowed on deck at a time through
the day, which gave each coolie four hours ou deck
out of the twenty-four.
Tbe coolies I saw on deck were more dejected and
miserable than any I have ever seen on board a
vessel touching at this port.
I visited the vessel again on the third day after
her arrival, remaining on board about two hours,
and saw a repetition of what I had seen on the
former occasion in the way of kicking, knocking and
cuffing the coolies.
The mate informed me that more of the coolies had
been taken sick and that he had written the Captain
a note telling him that the coolies would all die utile
they were allowed more liberty on deck and fresh
water to wash in. The Captain's answer arrived soon
after I got on board, and the mate at his own accord
read me the substance of it, which was to have the
coolies all washed in fresh water and make them as
comfortable as he could. The operation of washing
commenced without delay, and over two hundred
were stripped and washed while I remained on board.
Out of this number I atn sure that there were not
twenty that were not emaciated and scurfy, and a
large portion of them fearfully so. One poor fellow
was driven on deck by one of the guards and came
tottering along to one of the tubs where he was
stripped. He was nothing but skin and bones. Two
coolies commenced washing him aud the cold water
set him to shaking so violently that he had to be
supported by his comrades, to keep him from sinking
down on tbe deck. ,
He turned his head to the batch wistfully, saying
plainly by the act, take me below. Two cf the
coolies took him to the hatch, but were ordered back
by one of the guards, each receiving a lash from the
cat-o-nine-lails. Water was then poured upon him,
and he was scrubbed until there was scarcely a
breath left in him, and was then taken below to all
appearance insensible. One man was pointed out to
me by the mate as a merchant, who had resided near
Macao, who, aecording to the mate's statement, " hud
got on a tight," been drugged and awaked to find
himself bound on a foreign voyage. Tbe appearance
of this man was certainly in his favor.
The mate also informed me that, while taking on
board the complement of coolies, about two hundred
of them made a rush and jumped overboard, about
one hundred ellecting their escape.
The next day I again went on board, the ship
I was not witness to any whipping this day, the
crew being busy working ship, arid taking on board
provisions. I saw from twenty to thirty sick men
lyine on deck, some were covered with blankets.
Many of these poor creatures were too sick to move
much. The crew working ship, repeatedly trampled
upon them, which caused them to groan pltcously,
stretching forth their emaciated arms, and give their
inhuman guardians a most beseeching look. On
this occasion I had a conversation with the Captain.
He stated that he did not care for the loss of the sick
ones which had been sent on shore, and which had
effected their escape, as they would all have died if
retained on board.
Very truly yours, C. W. Gelett.
Mr. Editor : Allow me, through the columns
of your paper, to answer tbe tirade of abuse
heaped upon myself, by a late arrival from the
Colonies of Australia. He represented himself as
an unfortunate editor, we extended to him tho
right hand of fellowship and endeavored as much
as lay in our power by kind words and acts, lo
blunt the keen edge of disappointment, to which
be reports himself as having been subjected to in
another quarter. He having edited sixteen differ
ent papers, we very naturally expected be bad at
tained the highest degree of moral refinement and
would be a large acquirement to tbe staff of editors
in Honolulu. Feeling that rest was imperative to
tbe continuance of our health, we concluded It
would be wrong in us to shade so " brilliant a
light," bo retired from our editorial labors, and
gave place to this homo lunuini lupus, we could
bave sold our printing establishment for ready
cash, but wishing to help the Dfedy, we fold to
our traducer without a penny down. He never
received anything but unexceptional kindness
frpm our hands or lips, until he was called to
an account for bis diabolical assault upon our
character in bis so called Times, which upon bis
part was unkind and ungentlemanly. Tbe mer
chants of Honolulu bave summered and wintered
us six years, and we defy Mm to produce one that
will accuse of aught but tho sternest integrity, so
his assault upon us goes for naugbt except to tic
kle tbe palate of a few scandal lovers, wfio glory
in the traducing of right, who find a ready tool in
this hireling' whereby to vent tbe spleen and
malice of tbeir depraved natures. Now we chal
lenge this editor of seventeen different papers to
point to one line in Bennett's Own that In tbe least
offers or can bo construed to mean abuse to any
public man in this kingdom.
Since this wholesale slanderer has delivered
himself of bis budget, we bave conversed with tbe
leading minister of tbe crown, who stated that in
bis opinion Bennett's Own bad been as ably a con
ducted a paper as bad ever appeared in Honolulu,
and for bis part be bad not a word of fault to find
with any article that bad ever appeared in that
paper, and we presume that this would be the
answer of every Crown Minister were tbey Inter
rogated upon the same Kubject; where then does
this " Anguis in berber" get bis authority for his
untoward attack upon un. Through street brawl
ers and bis own depraved heart, thinking that
those needing a " tool" would pick him up, as la
declares himself for hire. This seventeenth editor
puts us in mind of an illiterate preacher who got
starved out among tbe more reined society, and
concluded to travel out West He at length found
a congregation senseless enough to engage him for
a term of six months upon the stipulated salary of
twenty bushels of rye, providing they liked the
doctrine. After he bad preached bis second ser
mon, he took tbe leading deacon aside, and asked
him bow tbe congregation liked bis preaching.
He said bis trial bad been so short be could hard
ly tell. Well, says tbe preacher, I would really
like to know, because if ibis doctrine does not
salt. I must try another, for I must have the rye.
So believing Lis tirade of abuse upon us, Mr.
Editor, gotten up by him preronala, we forglv
blm, 11 be goes no further. C. C. Bennett,
Editor and Publislttr of Bennett's Oven.
