We clip the allowing paragraphs from the San Francisco
Commercial Herald and Market Review s
The French Government of Defense has negotiated a loan
in London fur 10,000,000. It was readily subscribed for, and
was taken at 2 to 3 per cent, premium. Some hare ex
pressed the fear that tbe French people may at some future
time disavow tbe acts of the Defense Government ; but we feel
satisfied that they will do do such thing. They will esteem it
a sacred obligation, to be repaid at any cost.
Nearly one year ago, this journal expressed the opinion
that pol.tical parties must sooo base their action on ques
tions of financial importance. We pointed out the tarifl,
the civil service, and the creation of just and equitable tax
laws, as being the basis of future political action. Questions
of srctiunal interests, of class, of race, of color are dead issues.
wnicn no power can galvanize even into ir.e semblance of Ufa.
The present House of Representatives will be more ereoly
balanced than lor some years past. Questions of great public
import are more likely to receive thorough vmiilation, and
that kind of legislation which imposes heavy burdens on con.
somers to IIU the pockets of manufacturers, by oppressive pro
tective duties, will very likely come to grief, or receive a sharp

We notice with gratification that the whaling fleet is begi
sing to turn attention once more toward this port. Nine
whalers have put into San Francisco this season, to be prob
ably fallowed by others. Those that have come state that
they can, by pursuing a certain policy, reduce their expenses
nearly to the level of the Sandwich Islands ests. On a former
occasion, tbe whalers were extremely harassed by boarding-house
runners, and other dvrejiutable characters, who
"shanghaied " their men, induced them to desert, and put
then to great annoyance and expense. It Is to be honed thsi
nothing of tbs kind will occur again- The value of their trade

To eay that eelf-interest often blinds men to the
truth and leada them to hurried, and - unsound
conclusions, and a forgetfulhess of the ieesona of
Christian charity toward t'beir fellow men, is
but to utter a truism. We eee this bad phase of
human nature in every day life, and are not but-
prised. But when a'public journalist deliberately
and without caure libels the character of a public
rcan, the mischief becomes serious, and requires a"
contradiction. The capitalists of New Bedford, it
is to be feared, in their all-absorbing regard,, for
their own interests bare allowed tbemselres to
farm a moat unjust and unfounded prejudice
against the gentleman - who recently filled the
office of United States Consul at this port. . Wit
ness the following 'paragraph; which appears in
te New Bedford Mercury of October 5tb :
The President (Monday) appointed as Consul at
Ilonolula. in place of Mr. Adamson, whose nomina
tion the Senate failed to confirm, Chas. Mattoon, of
Ohio. Mr. Adamson showed himself bitterly hostile
to the whaling interests, and his re Ural from the
Consulship is particularly gratifying to our mer
chants." We unhesitatingly pronounce the statement
that t-Mr. Adamson showed himself bitterly
hostile to the -whaling interests," to be a' base
libel, without the slightest shadow of foundation.
If a course of strict moral rectitude, a finnjde
termina'tiun to fulfill the duties of his office with
regard alike to the "rights of all his countrymen
who had business with the Consulate, without
fear or TaTor, if these qualities in Mr. Adamson
showed him to be " bitterly hostile to the whal
ing interests'let us ask our New Bedford
friends in what way they would bare a Consul
how that he is the reverse of " bitterly hostile,"
that he is in fact a warm friend of those inter
ests? Must he have " an itching palm ;" an eye
single to the interests of "our merchants";-a
pliable disposition ; an car always open to he
master and none for the 'sailor; - would' the
presence of such a Consul at Honolulu prove par
ticularly gratifying to them ? We all know that
air. Auamsoo was just tbe reverse of this, and
perlormcd ths .daties of his office -between man
and man honestly, fairly, courteously, and withal,
wiui ica Bp,nt of independence which always
springs naturally from a principle of moral recti-
tuoe. And perhaps hercirv lays the true reason
why "our merchants" were so gratified at his
rctiral from the office. " We, who are on the, spot,
and who haye seen the workings of the Ameri
can Consulates at these islands in years past,
msj.be allowed to know aometbing about their
histories, and perhaps can Iforta as accarate a
judgment as to where the shoe pinches, as the
occupant of a New Bedford eoonting house. "'We
" could a tale unfold " of former incumterlts in
the Consulate, the history of whose careers, if
truthfully and unreservedly related, would aston
ish some of the uninitiated. They were not
overburdened with qualma of conscience, and
nursed the whaling interesta'with almost as much
care and solicitude as, they did their own. . And
when they retired,' (witff handsome fortunes) ,
we never hfTd the slightest' chuckle of gratifi
cation from New Bedford, not a whisper to the
effect that they were bitterly hostile to the inter
est of that burgh. Nor do we believe that they
were'. " '
. Our thoughts on reading the above quoted par
agraph frrn. the Mercury, were those of an honest
indignation; of regret" that a brother editor
shod j permit bin oolnmns to be used Sot the par
pose of traducing the character of aa honest official.
The extract is of itself evidence enough that the
editor knew but little of , what he wrote ; that h
was overreached , by some party . interested in
blackening the reputation of ilr, Adamson, for
selfish purposes, -it may- perhaps be admitted
that Mr. Adamson 'a policy was so independent
that it was too abrupt, and that it -would -have
keen better to have reached the ends of (justice
and right at which he aimed by easy approaches.
, tbere heeu a regularly organized Chamber of
Cosimeree here, (tb, establishment bP which we
Iemr?Uj,.bcins ur6InS apoo our mecantUe
y Adaraaon wold V dOBT)t Lave
availed himself of its counsel ; but as it was, he
consulted in important matters with individual
firms interested in the whaling business, and was
guided often by their advice.
We can easily imagine the dismay which must
have prevailed in the oil circles of New Bedford,
when the unwelcome fact was thrust upon them
that there were two parties to shipping articles,
and that Jack bad rights that were to be protected.
The shock must have been as severe as that of a
shower bath with the thermometer at thirty degrees
What ! compelled to be honest? And by a Consul?
Sublime audacity ! Immediately the cry went up
that a death-blow had been struck at the vitals of
the leading interest of New Bedford. This would
never do ; and so we have heard of a Spartan
band of shelved shipmasters and hungry agents,
marching in solid phalanx " down to Washing
ton," armed with protests and ever potent money
bags. What was there secured was not the re
jection of Mr. Adamson ' by the United States
Senate, but tbe refusal of the Committee of Com
merce to present bis nomination to that body for
confirmation. Under the rules, any nomination
by the President which is not acted on before tbe
close of tho session, falls to the ground, and con?
sequently there was no option but to recall Mr.
Adamson. ' v
Had the late incumbent of the Consulate been'
here the past fall, we should not have seen the.,
columns of the Government Organ filled with re
ports of cases in Court where Jack rebelled at
being paid off at lower rates than even cargoes'
sold for in this market. Let it be said to tbe
honor of our Courts that inevery instance the
Consular rates were set aside, and higher prices
givenv And let ns hope that the good work com-"
menced by Mr. Adamson is not to stop, but that
strict justice is to be dealt out with an impartial
hand to both Jack and his master.

We the undersigned Catholics of Great Britain,

We hold that to witness these events in silence

Joan Winter, aeeistant director of tbe Greenwich
Observatory, both men of extended reputation. Tbe
reao.lt of their independent calculations are almost
entirely coincident, although differing as to their
estimates of its density, and the consequences which
will accrue to the earth from the approach of this
eccentrics visitor. That the approach of the comet
will be so near on the 21st of March, as to turn
night into day, both are agreed. The French
philosopher, believing in the density of these bodies,
asserts that it is not only possible, but Tery probable.
