SATllRDAY. OCTOBER 15
Ix our issue of to-day will be found the first
portion of a very full report of Mr. S. G. Wil
der's statement to the Planter's Association and
others, made by him on Saturday evening last.
This report will be found both interesting and
valuable. There ie a sort of melodramatic in
terest attaching to the adventures and mischances
of Mr. Wilder in endeavoring to carry out the
ohjeet of his million, as well as in many of the
separate scenes and incidents which he so graph
ically describee. Fuitliermore the facts are in
structive, and possess an historical value, as
being connected with one of the greatest migra
tion of a people of which we have any record.
They alaj give us an insight into Chinese charac
ter, manners and customs.
We are too apt to look upon this expedition as
simply one for laborers, and which laborers have
cost so much per head. It is clear that the
whole trouble and the extra expense of these
men, arose from an ordinance issued and put in
force by the British Government, so recently,
that no one here knew anything of it until after
Mr. Wilder had left. This and the other diffi
culties he met with, were evidently the direct
result of events entirely beyond his control.
But we should not look upon this mission, and
the expense of these men, from a direct dollar
and cent point of view solely. The planters
and the country have gained valuable experience
quickly, an experience which had to be obtained
somehow, probably slowly and at much more
ultimate expense to both. Mr. Wilder has given
them eight months of his time gratuitously, and
we look upon the knowledge and experience
gained as worth incalculably more than the extra
cost of these few men, and we have no doubt
that in due time both the G o vera men t and the
planters will appreciate Mr. Wilder 'e efforts, and
reward him by some substantial token of that
We shall defer comment on the situation of
the labor question, which this report discloses,
until we have presented our readers with the
concluding portion of it. In the mean time,
there is abundant food for reflection, and one
fact appears to stand prominently forward
throughout, viz., that we shall have to make up
our minds to pay higher wages than we have
been accustomed to for Chinese laborers if we
Steam Cultivation and tlic Ldibor
The way in which the European race will do
most towards the actual cultivation of tropical
countries will be when one mechanic will stand
in a covered engine car, and having a few valves
and levers within reach, will, with the assistance
of one or two native stokers and steersmen,
thoroughly plow his 100 acres of land in ten
hours, without fatigue or exhaustion to himself
or his assistants ! This sounds chimerical, but it
is almost within the power of machinery now at
work. We copy the following extract from the
Scientific American of May 14th last, describing
steam plows at work on the Magnolia Sugar
Estate in Louisiana, one of the largest in the
This new implement of agriculture consists of
two ten-ton portable engines, resembling the old
locomotive that mnny of our readers probably have
noticed at the lake end of the Pontch.irtrain depot.
Beneath each locomotive is a revolving steam drum,
on which passes the steel corrugated wire rope that
draws to and fro the cultivator, to which are attached
some ten steel tipped plow blades. The cultivator is
an iron frame, with a seat at each end, and mounted
on two iron wheels. On top of the cultivator sits a
co'ored boy, who by means of a simple tiller directs
the progress of the plow. The locomotive engines
are situated directly opposite to each other, about
two acres in distance. By means of the steam drum
aud the rope the cultivator traverses the field back
and forward much faster than a man con walk, and
turning up the soil to a depth of eighteen to twenty
two inches in a more effectual manner than could be
done by the old system ; a harrow some eight feet in
length is used over the same field, and is propelled
with great ease by the same motive power.
Mr. Lawrence, the proprietor of the estate, has
four of these plows in operation, which easily turn
over twenty-four acres a day, at a cost, including
fuel and labor, of some three dollars per acre, which
is quite a saving over the method heretofore pursued.
There is no apparent intricate machinery about the
work ; the whole seems to work as smoothly as an
ordinary standing grist-mill ; the locomotive trails
over the road quite easily, propelled by steam. Mr.
Lawrence, last fall, took off a crop of over six hun
dred hogsheads of sugar, the entire plowing having
been performed by the steam apparatus. The plow,
locomotive, etc., were constructed by a firm in Leeds,
England, and cost, exclusive of freight, etc., some
1,600. The first one imported to this country is
now in New Jersey ; one subsequently was sent to
Illinois, which has lately been sent to this State, and
is now in operation at the Concession Plantation, in
the parish of Plaqueminc, where it is said to give
In the same periodical of August 13th last, wo
Mr. Clarke, a member of one of the committees,
in a lecture on steam cultivation, delivered before
the Central Farmers' Club, in December last, said
(with reference to a trial of steam apparatus at the
recent show of the R. A Society) :
" Now some persons may think it astounding to
talk about from fifty to seventy acres a day being
cultivated. I admit that it is very astounding ; but
I also assert that I saw the thiug done aud there
are other persons also who saw it done. I may tell
you, too, that the apparatus was not in a perfect
state ; it was one of the earliest trials made of that
particular arrangement. I have not the slightest
doubt that the makers of steam plows are prepared,
though I have not their authority to say so, to do, in
answer to a challenge, an extent of land in a day
which would astonish every one present. I have not
the slightest dor.bt myself, that seventy acres I
should not stare particularly if one hundred acres
could be cultivated, provided the work was tolerably
It appears that on the Magnolia Sugar Estate
the estimated expense of is team plowing was
three dollars an acre, and that twenty-four acres
a day were more effectually done than it could
have been by the old system. We lately watched
on a plantation on Oahu four plows with five
yoke of oxen each, and three men to each plow
and team, breaking up some pew land. It was
certainly a difficult and rough piece to break up,
but we do not think that the plows were actually
plowing more than one-third of the time; the
teams were either stuck fast, drawing the plows
over the surface, turning round, or getting all
mixed up together, the other two-thirds ; and yet
all was being done that could be with the mate
rials by the men at work and the Portuguese
who superintended the plowing. We think there
are few plantations, where oxen are extensively
used, that would like to figure up what their
oxen cost them including deaths and losses of
animals. But- it is after all not so much a ques
tion as to whether the plowing on a sugar plan
tation costs three dollars or four dollars or six
dollars an acre, but, the important difficulty seems
to be that as a general rule the requisite quantity
of plowing cannot be done in time at all. The
process is a tedious one with the means at the
command of most of our plantations.
A good steam plowing apparatus on the scale
of that on the Magnolia estate, where the land
is favorable, would on the other band plow more
than necessary for any one plantation, so that
it would only be where several plantations lie
conveniently together, as on the weather side
of Maui for instance, that it would seem to be
worth while to introduce such a one, and amongst
four or five plantations, the expense would not
be much, the oxen would almost pay for it. There
are however smaller arrangements drawn by a
road engine, which might be suitable for single
plantations. The engine could do other work at
other times, and would be particularly useful in
drawing cane to the mill during the grinding
But when we have introduced steam machine
ry on our plantations, wherever practicable and
profkitable, what effect will it have on the labor
question? According to our view, every planta
tion that makes use of the steam plow and har
row, and gets more land into cultivation will
require more hands than it did before. The
more steam we use the more men we shall want.
Whenever machinery is introduced into a suita
ble location, there the population increases and
wages rise. Employers can afford to pay better
wages, and a more generally skilled and intelli
gent laboring class is required. It would seem
that there is going to be some difficulty on these
islands in getting enough of a suitablo class of
laborers, at the wages we have been accustomed
to pay. At something more, however, we can
get as many from China as wc want. It may
be that we 6hall have to look this question
squarely in the face, and to make up our minds
to pay higher wages. If anything can save our
plantations uuder this increased tax, it will be
by steam machinery and by increasing the yield.
We may figure as we like, but it is palpable
that, other things being equal, the cost per pound
of 6ugar on a plantation growing four hundred
acres of cane and yielding six hundred tons of
sugar, would be greater than the cost per pound
of the sugar on a plantation growing six hun
dred acres cane and yielding nine hundred tons
sugar. Again, nominally higher wages does not
always mean really higher. That is to say, there
would probably be more than twenty per cent,
more work got out of fifty Chinese who were
paid fifteen dollars per month each, over all, and
were satisfied, than out of fifty Chinese who coEt
twelve dollars and a half per month each over
all and were di6satipfied. We know that on
some of the very best plantations there is a large
amount of shirking and soldiering going on
amongst both natives and Chinese, and there is
only one remedy, that is to pay thein and treat
them, so that the greatest loss they can suffer
would be to lose their situations.
We 6ay then, that even if our plantations
should be obliged to pay a nominally higher rate
of wages ; that they could perhaps do better than
ever before, by introducing steain cultivating
machinery wherever practicable, by increasing
the area under cultivation nd the yield, and by
getting a more adequate day's work out of the
laborers. Referring to the general good effects
of steam cultivation on farms, and on the labor
performed, the report of a committee on this
subject in England, in 18G7, observes :
." Not only are the operations themselves better
done, quicker done, less expensively done, but all
kiudred and collateral movements have had imparted
to them a speed and ' whirr ' characteristic of
steam ; men acquire the habit of doing the day's
work in the day, and of not leaving it for the mor
row. The day's labor, too, on a steam .vim, repre
sents more work, with less distress to the physical
power of the laborer, and better remuneration.
Steam is working a revolution, slightly manifested
as yet, so that we can speak only of tendencies in
farm practice, and in the character of the r
population ; they are being trained lor th
machinery in agriculture.
Funeral of Her lale Majealy Quern I)sw
axer Knlaiuu, aud ila Suggestions.
As we viewed the impressive cortege conveying
the remains of this estimable lady to their final
resting place, on Saturday last, in memory we
were taken back to those times when she appeared
as the Consort of His late Majesty Kamehameba
III. The appellation of Kamehameba the Good
has been often and still is applied to him by bis
loving subjects. On the pages of history many
potentates have been denominated Great but
we are of opinion, in the present age, among right
thinking men, that mere greatness as a conqueror
and a destroyer of the human race and its happi
ness, ununited with goodness, claims but a email
share ot admiration. The term good, we maintain,
is most justly applied to the monarch to whom we
now refer. It is true that he was preceded by an
illustrious Sovereign who, by his energy and valor,
brought the different Islands of the group imder
one dominion ; but bis work, heroic as it was, was
incomplete! the Government of the group bad not
beeu acklowlodged by the Great Nations ; and al
though the reign of Kamehameba II. intervened,
little was done towards the promotion of these
objects except the breaking up of the ancient tabut,
the abandonment of the worship ot idols, and the
kindlv reception of the American Missionaries.
That Prince died in a foreign country.
It was left for Kamehameba If I. to place the key
Btone in the arch, which bad been reared by bis il
lustrious predecessor. In bis reign a constitutional
government was proclaimed, the rights of the
meanest subject acknowledged under the law, and
the independence of the kingdom assured on a firm
basis by the three great nations with whom it bad
the most intimate relations. To accomplish the
latter it was almost an ordeal of Ore ; the fortitude
ot the Sovereign, bis chiefs and advisers were
First The deprivation of Sovereignty under the
provisional government by Lord George runlet,
and afterwards so nobly restored by Admiral
Thomas. And again by repeated trials in con
tending against the demands of another European
These adversities are now things of the pant, and
we are enjoying the peaceful fruits of thoBe early
struggles. It is not to be doubted that the royal
lady to whoso obsequies we have alluded at the
head of this article, shared with her royal husband
the trials and afflictions of those dark periods,
which were destined to usher in the brighter day
of prosperity and independence.
Another reflection also came upon ns, that the
high chiefs of the country are so rapidly passing
away, without leaving descendants to fill their
places when they too shall have passed off the
stage. It may be said that the people of pure na
tive origin are also passing away, and it is a matter
of deep sorrow to all friends of the Ila waiian race ;
but as the country may be said, by the admission
of foreign elements, conjoined with the Hawaiian
stock, to be re-peopling itself into a mixed race,
we desire the Hawaiian Dynasty to be perpetuated,
as we have often heard it remarked by foreigners,
that they bad not lived under a government more
protective of their rights than the present consti
tntional government, founded by Kamehameba III.
We feel that the above sentiments were freely
echoed by the Hawaiians who followed the funeral
procession, as we heard them exclaim : Ua liala
hou kekahi makua o niakou another parent and
benefactress has departed.
Commenced Woek. The necessary material for
the finishing of the new Government building, to be
occupied by the Post Office Department, and other
offices, has been received, and the work resamed.
The building will now be completed with two stories
only, and not three as contemplated. This we think
desirable, as a third story would have given the
whole structure an unshapely appearance, besides it
is not known how this material will stand in this dry
The Teleoraph Lookout. By order of the Com
missions of Crown Lands, Mr. H. M. Whitney bas
given notice thai hereafter no persons will be per.
mitted to ascend the lookout over the post-office
building, but such as are employed in it. It appears,
from an examination of the tower that the weight of
the crowds who occasionally ascend it on the arrival
of mail steamers, and on other occasions, is causing
the structure to careen so as to endanger lives, if
they are permitted to use it aa heretofore. Hence
the necessity of this prohibition.

NOTES OF THE WEEK.
This Court met, pursuant to adjournment, on
Monday, morning last, and the first matter coming
up was the esse of the King . Orloff Peterson,
charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. The
circumstances connected with this case were, some
what peculiar, that is in reference to counsel. The
case had been adjourned over from the last July
term, and the prisoner confined for some months iu
default of finding bail. It appears that bis Excel
lency the Attorney General aud the prisouer's otuu
sel had entered into a stipulation to take the deposi
tions of certain witnesses, sea-faring men, the name
to be used on- the trial. When the case was called,
and the jury about to be empanelled, W. C. Jones,
Esq., prisoner's counsel (after an intimation from
the Attorney General that he bad been made aware
of certain objections to be made as to the deposi
tions), stated, that although he had consented to the
taking of said depositions, he was of opinion that he
had exceeded his proper duties towards his client, he
not being present, in consenting to such depositions
in any way, and cited constitutional law, saying that
that had escaped his memory at the time. The
Attorney General charged the learned counsel for the
prisoner with bud faith in thus repudiating his solemn
agreement, and as utterly unworthy of an Attorney
of record of this Court ; and thought he (Joucs)
should go out of the case, which thereupon Mr.
Jones did, and the Court assigned Mr. Suuiley as
counsel in the case.
The case was subsequently resumed on Wednesday
morning, when Mr. Stanley, having had time to
confer with bis client, objected to the admission of
the depositions, and as the crown had no further
evidence, the objection was referred to the Court,
who ruled that it could not admit the depositions in
a criminal case, and still further, could not grant
the Attoruey General's motiou for a contiuuauce,
seeing that the prisoner bad been so loDg awaiting
trial, and that the only duty devolving upon the
Court was to order the prisoner's discharge The
prisoner was called up, reproved, cautioned, and told
that he had a narrow escape, and then sent on his
way, it is to be hoped rejoicing. The Attorney Gen
eral rose and said only one coarse remained for him,
and that was to make a motion that W. C. Junes,
Esq., an attorney of record at this Court, be arretted
aud struck from the roll. Mr. Joues was about
replying in exculpation, when the Court stated that
whenever the rule was taken out, he should have
every opportunity to be heard iu his defense. The
Colonel remarking that he should demand that as a
right, and if not granted he should be driveu reluct
antly to a newspaper article. And so ends this
twenty-four hours, as they say iu ship's log books,
weather hazy. We are no lawyers, lleaveu forgive us,
but it seems singular to us that the learned counsel
on either side should have relied on these depositions
in a criminal action ; iu civil actions, aa we under
stand, they are common enough. What's to be done
with the Colonel is yet to peg out.
The rape case of Shong came up on Monday, end
the jury disagreed, standing six to six. Jury dis
charged ; and on Wednesday a new jury empanelled
and the case resulted in an acquital. Attorney Gen
eral for Crown, Henry Thompson for defendant.
On Tuesday, the case of the King rs. lilodgctt,
came up before a jury on the facts, the demurrer, as
we noticed in our last issue, having been overruled.
As there seems to be considerable interest felt in this
case by the public, we can only say that IModgett
was charged with perjury, in swearing that he did
not write a certain letter, reflecting upon the officials
of the American Consulate aud Hospital at this port,
and which, it was alleged he did write. The jury
found by their verdict, that he was guilty as charged.
Blodgett's counsel relied, as it would appear, upou
the legal points in the case, which, as we recollect to
have heard them in Court, were these : That lilodgctt
took the oath voluntarily, and could not have been
compelled to take it ; that it was not material to any
issue, as no case, trial, or proceeding was pcndiDg ;
that it was not required by law, as in tax caeua or
revenue cases, as is required by statute, though no
suit be pending. We understand that a motion in
arrest of judgment is before the Court, and the legal
exceptions may be finally curried before the full
On Wednesday The case of Forbes vt. Gibson for
damages, five hundred dollars, for alleged breach
of contract on part of defendant, was tried and ver
dict rendered for Gibson. We understand a motion
for a new trial will be made by plaintifl's counsel, on
the ground that the verdict is contrary to evideuoe.

On Friday morning the motion in arrest of judg
ment in Blodgett's case was submitted by his coun
sel, and the Court reserved its opinion on the motion
until 2 o'clock P. M. when, after a lucid review of
the points of law as submitted, the Court sustained
the motion. The prisoner's counsel then moved for
the prisoner's discharge, and the Court made the
order for discharge accordingly. Attorney General
for.tbe Crown, aud Messrs. Davis and Thompson for
The case of the West Maui Plantation vs. Camp
bell & Turton, as also that of Beneamina vs. Clark,

Inter-Island Travel. The resumption of steam
communication between the Islands by the steamer
Kilauea, is a perfect boon to ibo traveling public,
both foreign and native, especially tho latter, as
they implicitly believe In visiting their country
cousins often, and to guard them against any apo
plectic attacks from a plethora of flsb and pol.
Who is there that, having been obliged to voyage
between the Islands for business, will not admit
the truth of the above assertion. We say nothing
of those who voyage for pleasure, excepting, "every
one to bis taste," or, as they say In the Gallic,
everybody has his gout." But, setting all jesting
aside, it may be said that even ou board the Ki
lauea. as she was of old, going at the lazy speed,
in a dead calm and smooth water, under the lee of
Lanal, at the rate of two and a half knots per hour,
telegraphed by ber smoke in the quiescent village
of Lahaina nine hours before her arrival, she was
infinitely preferred to a sailing vessel. The fact Is
that sailing vessels, with alltbeir tackle, rigging
and sail", cannot be induced to go ahead without
wind. The records of Hawaiian navigation rbow
papsages of from four to eleven days from Kauai
to Honolulu, only one hundred miles distant. There
is one instance of sixteen days, where tbe captain,
becoming destitute of all provisions but sugar, and
losing his reckoning, was told by a Hawaiian chief
on board, " that if he didn't know wbere be was,
he'd better go back to Kauai and make a new
start." Thus to be broiled in tbe sun, in a calm,
under a high head-land, on board a schooner, when
the smallest amount of steam power would run tbe
vessel past it into the refreshing breeze In tbe
channel ahead, is terrible. All this will be reme
died by the steamer Kilauea, especially In ber pres
ent good condition, and we wish her success. Wa
learn, as a specimen of what ber success will un
doubtedly be, tbat she anchored at Lahaina at 2:45
o'clock on Tuesday morning ; at Maalaca Bay on
the same morning at half-past seven. ' Passing on,
touched at Makee's landing, and arrived at Kawai
hae twenty-five hours from Honolulu. So far, so
Wreck ok tub Schooner Marii.pa. We under
stand that the schooner Mary, Capt. Berrill, went
np a few days since to the point of Kahoolawe,
where the unfortunate Marilda was stranded, and
secured from the wreck anchors, chains, running
rigging and sails. Nothing could be done with
the bull, as a number of her planks bad been
stove. Aside from the articles saved, the vesnel
was a total loss. Many years ago a wbaleshlp
with a valuable cargo went on shore at tbe same
place, and under similar circumstances. When
tbe revenues of tbe Kingdom will permit It, and
tbe "assembled wisdom" of tbe nation shall have
become surfeited with discussions upon the horse
and dog tax, divorce and other sVicb matters, per
haps an appropriation for a light-bouse at that
dangerous point might be favorably regarded.
The Cohcebt on Thursday Evevino. Mr.
Ilavell's farewell vocal and instrumental concert, last
Thursday evening, at Buffum's nail, was largely at

evidence of ber proficiency in vocal muslo, and of this
gentleman's ability as a teacher. The spirit of the

The affair was very successful, considering the disad
