Wood versus Stone.
The Gazette of Wednesday last job a labored
leader under the heading of Iiuprovemento, "
which Bounds like tho special pleading of a
lawyer addressed to a jury. That, in fact, is just
what it amounts to, the public in this case being
the jury, and the object of the advocate to prove
that it is preferable to erect stone rather than
wooden buildings. The proposed new hotel
about to be built, is the subject which interests
the writer, though he does not say hotel once,
but deals in generalities only. The inference he
would draw is that, because prima facie, a stone
building is eater, more durable and more valua
ble than a wooden one, therefore we must build
the hotel of stone, or . perhaps concrete. One
short month ago, but few among us could have
been found who would not have conceded that
this plan was, on the whole, the roost preferable
one to follow in tbe proposed publio improve
ment. Now, however, it is useless to disguise
the fact that -public opinion in favor of stono
structures in these Islands has received a shock
! from which it will not soon recover. e seri
ously doubt the correctness of the Gazette's in
formation to the effect that several persons are
; now about to erect stone buildings. The fear of
i earthquakes is two' well grounded to be easily
! talked out of the mind of any person who experi
i enccd the late disturbances of terra firma. We
may reasonably foresee and prepare for all poti
! ble dangers to our houses front fire, storms or
natural decay, but we cannot sufficiently guard
j against the probable recurrenco of the terrible
! earthquake but that there will always remain a
! feeling of insecurity for the safety not only of
! our property, but of our lives.
! ' The arguments which may be adduced in favor
i of the employment of wood in the erection of a
j public building such as the new hotel is or should
! be designed to be, are numerous and forcible.
First, in point of economy, the prime cost of a
wooden building will bo from twenty to" thirty
per cent, less than that of a stone one, and tbe
floors and frame not exposed to the weather will
last as long in a wooden as in a stone building.
The verandas must be 6T wood, in either case. To
carry out the enlarged ideas which are enter
tained by aboat every one, if wo aro to bavea
hotel at all, it should come as near as possible to.
fulfilling all the requirements of a first-class es-.
tabiishment ; consequently the cost must . be.
counted carefully in the start. It would be
awkward, and undoubtedly result in killing tbe
enterprise, were we to go on and erect a costly
and bandsome stone edifice' (and all handsome
stone bouses must be costly) and then find the
funds running low, with nothing but bare walls
to show for the money spent.'
A public hotel is needed now, and the pros
pects are that the need will increase very shortly.
It requires no argument .beyond observation, and
perhaps we may add, the arguments also recently
used by our co temporary while discussing the
labor and wages question, to prove that besides
being very costly, the erection of a stone building
here is a tediously slow- operation. ; A gang of
good mechanics, such as we have in our midst,
would have your wooden hotel finished and ready
for occupancy before -even the walls, of a stone,
brick or concrete building could ' be completed.
Time is money.'. i .
' In point of durability, such a structure ns'is
contemplated, in the composition -of which none
but the best of materials are employed, carefully
and faithfully put together and . properly cared
for, would last for a generation. In these days,
a single generation in point of time, comprehends
more of progress and change than two centuries
of old.. The. idea of ( building for posterity is
getting to be an exploded one, for it supposes a
pretty wide stretch of imagination to say what
the requirements of ; posterity may bd: In the
march of events, twenty years hence even, the
one who to-day erects a costly pile of bricks and
mortar, (if, in the meantime it haj not tumbled"
about his ears) may regretthat ho has not in hand
some of the money thus invested and irrecovera-1-bly
locked up, wherewith . to. erect shingle
palaces," if you ehoosc, to meet the requirements
of the times.- We need go no farther than a few
yards below the J Post-office fo be shown where
some $75,000 or more are thus " locked up " in
brick and stono buildings.

lodge, should be as safe as possible. Instead of

It was officially announced in London last
January, that " Her Majesty the Queen has been
graciously pleased to approve of Mr. Alexander
Speed Webster as Consul at the British Colonies
of New .South Wales and its Dependencies, for
the King of the Hawaiian Islands.", The fact
that there is a Ilawaiian Consul at N. S. Wales,
in view of tbe increasing commercial intercourse
between that country and these Islands, becomes,
in our opinion. matter of sufficient interest to
require . that it should be known ; albeit the
Foreign' Office has not yet been graciously pleased
to make it public " By Authority.", But perhaps
there is a vast press of business at the Dep. For.
Aff., and the Consulship was overlooked, in the

Let therefore nobody trust in that future peace
which is to follow. Whatever the governing power
may be, kiefs or people, emperors or tribunes, they
will receive the acclamation" of France only on the
condition that -they assume her hatred and, her

A Thanksgiving for Peace.
The next arrival from the East will in all
probability bring the welcome news of the fihal
declaration of peace between , Germany and
France. The reception of the news wil lbe an
occasion of heartfelt rejoicing throughout the
civilized world. We learn that it is the inten
tion of our German fellow-citizens, on the day
following that on which the definite intelligence
is received, to observe the occasion in a fitting
manner by closing their places of business and
attending Divine Service at the Fort street Church,
and thus publicly giving thanks to the Supremo
Ruler of nations for the ending of a destructive
contest and the return of gentle peace. This
manner of celebrating tbe victorious ending of a
sanguinary war, instead of indulging in noisy
demonstrations of triumphant exultation over a
fallen foe, commends itself to our reason and
must enlist pur hearty sympathy and co-operation.
There is a manliness in if that is noble.
44 In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
, As modem stillness and humility." .
In the evening it is proposed to have a torch
light procession. We understand that a com
mittee of our German residents have in charge
the details of the celebration. . .

! heads of the occupants, the walls should be of
j materials not to be broken, and the ceilings made
! of stuff not- to be shaken down. A wooden
building; properly joade, would be; a place to run
to for safety in case of a severe shake, and the
feeling; of security that would result, would no
doubt -induce ruany to live in it rather than
taking a chance under plastered ceilings , and
within stone walls.' ' ' '- " "
To the objection, which after all, is the main
one, that a wooden building incurs the. risk of
fire, it is answered that ample means are at hand
for the purposes of precaution in this particular.
Water is abundant, and besides the present cis
terns and hydrants, these may be multiplied to
any desired extent, while with the modern appli-
j anccs to wooden buildings they- may be made in
! reality almost as much fireproof as those gener
j afly known by that name.: ; - ? . . "
j We have heard it mentioned as an objection
to a hotel bein constructed of wood, that in
each a building the transmission of sound through
partitions precluded the idea of privacy.' .Bat in
modern, house, building this is entirely obviated
by" the" plan known as -dumb walls, the space
between partitions "dividing-apartments being
packed with mortar, thus 'completely deadening
any ordinary sound.
Thus much in brief, may be adduced (in favpr
of wood, in preference to stono. iSut there is one
other point in connection with this hotel enter
prise, upon which We, speaking for the public,
have a word to say. ' Experience has proved
that in house building as well . as many . other
undertakings, " in the multitude of counselors
there is safety." We can readily understand the
advantage that might revolt to the deliberations
of the Committee of bond-holders, who with the
Minister are entrusted with the execution of the
work proposed, were plans for construction sub
mitted for their approval. There are professional
and practical men among us, whose suggestions
might be of value. It has been a matter of sur
prise that so far no call has been made by adver
tisement for the preparation and submission of
euh plan- But it would sppear as though the
Ministry were determined to listen to uo sugges
tions and consult nobody's opinions. They started
7- i upon the enterprise with fair words and pleasant
promises, if the public would only lend theneces-

While the English and American pre6s have
freely and often commented on the war during
its progress, until now when it is virtually ended,
but little or nothing has been heard of the ideas
of the French people. Actively engaged in the
brave but unsuccessful endeavor to drive the foe
from thtr country, they have not found time to
pause and reason, A recent French writer in an
English periodical, from whose article on 11 The
future of France " we have reprinted some ex
tracts on the fourth page of to-day's paper, takes
a very philosophical and statesmanlike view of
the situation. He clearly sees Ihe evils under
which his country has labored, understands the
severe but necessary lesson which she has received,
and points out the course to be pursued whereby
she. may profit and rise again, Phoenix-like, from
her ashes. - . .-
v- But from America there comes a far d ifferent
voice. " The French in the United States are nu
merous, and their organ, the Courrier des Elats
Vnts, published at New York, is widely circu
lated and read as an authorized mouthpiece of
French opinion, oh l)bth sides of the Atlantic. In
the editorials of the Courrier, the liberty of the
press, so freely accorded in the CJreat Republic, is
exercised in the fullest license, and they have
been outspoken and fearless on all subjects of
American as well as European politics. The
leading article in the issue for the 4th of Febru
ary, on the conclusion of the war, is ii remarkable
production, and we print below a fair translation.
Coming from the influential 6ource that it docs,
it challenges attention. We may well understand
how a proud and high-tempered people like the
French must deeply feel the degredation which
has come upon their country. Wounded patriot
ism and military pride we must commisserate.
But the utterances of the Courrier show any
spirit than that of calmly meeting adversity with
a will to profit by its lessons. If these be the
true sentiments of the French people, it would
seem that the Germans, who ought to understand
them better than others, would be justified. in the , Jjrvll
eyes of the civilized world in demanding and en
forcing '' the - Burest; and strongest guarantees
against a future interruption by France, of the
peace which lias just been conquered :
Is This Penco?
Paris has fallen. Bat hus France fallen with it T
Does tbe capitulation of Paris necessitate the capitu
lation of France T Yes. The armistice is the end of
tbe war ; that is our opinion ; we will say more, it is
. Paris fallen, France falls, because,. as the Herald
says, " Paris is still France." Paris alone has stop
ped the march of the euemy and limited the invasion ;
and now when Paris itself with its power aud
its heroism il has succumbed, where can welHud a
support that will resist the immense weight of the
armies who have put the knee on its throat? But
Paris, fallen, France fallen, the war ended is that
peace T , . JSTo. Who would therefore dare to pretend
that France would resign herself to an eternal yoke 7
Ah ! he would know our ooatitry -rery little who
would believe her capable of this supreme philosophy
and this sublime humility.
When we say that the armistice is the end of the
war ; and that it is oar opinion and our wish, we
mean to say that, broken down by strife, mutilated
by the sword, calcined by fire, we are ready-to relin
quish those arms which, by the fate of. war, have
become only shattered pieces in our hands, but it is
with the purpose that we want to keep in our veins
yet blood enough to revive again ;' it is that we want
to conserve sufficient ' air to restore ourselves, to
breathe again, to recover our strength, to await our
time, and at the right hour jump at the throat of oar
enemy and revenge ourselves.
This is savage yes ! This will make civilisation
recoil and retard this beautiful humane theory of the
abolition of war, without doubt ! : We will be barba
rians ; be it so ! and tbe world will point its finger at
us, what does it matter T We have done enough for
the prosperity of peace, for arts, for sciences, for in
dastry, for the advancement of humanity.- What
thanks has humanity given: ns and what assistance
have we drawn from those disinterested services
which we have rendered to the world at large ? We
have not even had sterile sympathies for them,
because there is no people that does not smile at our
fall, and only isolated voices give us a few words of
pity as a matter of charity.
It is a fact, there will be a cessation of arms, but
never a durable peace for the growing generations.
France, in her mutilations, suffering eternally from
the amputated members, will have repose no sooner
than when her pieces, now cut off, have again re
joined her and been soldered up. So much the worse
for Europe when it trembles from oar convulsions,
we have heart and "soul' only for ourselves. - What
matter to us the agita'ions and tierUcr -A vV.tcrnT
Enough of chivalry, enough of geaerosifj, eacith of
penenoe in and thorough acquainted
Dusiness. nest reference can be given.
