The German Peace Festival.

French Assembly, our German fellow citizens,
accepting the intelligence an conclusive, de

A-.Few More.' Last Words."
The Gazette has evidently got enough of the
" Wood versus Stone " controversy, but lias not
the grace or the courage to acknowledge tbe fact.
Like a scolding woman, it. insiets however upon
having the last word. The last word in this in
stance is to apply the term 44 ridiculous " to our
advocacy of wooden structures. This, though
hardly amounting to an argument, is probably
intended ks a cutting sarcasm on the understand
ings of a majority of the' community, whose
opinions on the'eontroversy are the eaine as our
own. The lumber dealer, Who was accused of
writing our articles, must feci particularly bad
to find that ho ia Bimply 44 ridiculous." The
editor could' scarcely have chosen a more em
phatic. way of declaring his defeat, than by re
sorting to the you're another" style of reply.
' Now that the discussion is concluded, we have
no desire to resurrect it, but there is one sugges
tion that has been meB turned which we think is
worth while remembering. . It is to the eSect
that the proposed hotel ' being intended for the
accommodation of strangers coming here from
abroad, who are to lodge in the building during
their stay, and not 6o much for the accommoda
tion of residents, the arguments against 6tone,
on earthquake principles, receive additional force.
One might readily enter a house for a call, or to
eat dinner, and yet object to sleeping inside of
' The Milk in the Cocoanut. 1 '
We perfectly agree with our contemporary in
the opinion that 44 one of the easiest and surest
ways to wealth on these islands, is by means of
the cocoanut treeV' . The only difficulty in tbe
way to wealth " thus open to all, is how to get
the trees. To be sure, one can hardly go amies
as to locality on which to plant, but unfortunately
those localities cannot be bought. But If
any one should be fortunate enough to secure a
fitting locality on which to make a cocoanut
plantation, how long would he have to wait for
the milk in the cocoanut" otherwise the oil
which is so handsomely to repay expense and
trouble? Only from ten to twenty years, in
which timo his trees, if no blight "came, or
worms destroyed, would begin to bear. To be
sure, they would continue to bear for a hundred
years and perhaps longer, which would be a con
siderable source of satisfaction to the descendants
of the planter, provided tliey retained possession,
and the demand for cocoanut oil continued so
long. But in this age of tbe world the inexor
able low, demands our attention. . We cannot
afford the time required to perfect a cocoanut
plantation ; we must plant something that will
realize at once. Let those and they are among
us who have the waste lands and (he capital to
spare, go on and plant cocoanut groves for pos
terity, who will probably rise up and call them
blessed. Poor men must be content to raise
something that will sell now.

Arthur P. Brickwood, the present incumbent,
received liia appointment. During the six years,

It was not until after the commencement of
Mr. Brickwood's administration that anything
like adequate accommodation was provided for
native correspondence. The euetoni formerly was
to dump the native letters into au open
box by themselves, which was free to the
public a somewhat similar accommodation
to that provided for foreigners previous to
1850. The natives are industrious letter writers,
and since the postal system has become thor
oughly organized, their correspondence has
greatly increased. A separate department for
Hawaiian letters was inaugurated several years
ago, and in the new Post-office there are eighty
lock-boxes in the native department. The follow

Amos S. Cooke, just deccaaed, was born in I) anbury, Con
necticut, in 1810, the son of pious jwrenta of the highest re
spectability. His ancestors were among tbe settler ol the
place. When young he entered a store in hi native town, and
a ter a season went to New Vork, where h was a book-keeper
in tbe large commissi oo. house of Tonilinson 6c. Booth, in Front
street, tor several year. Ilia employers were both pious, ex

hod ben taught in hi childhood, and immediately united with

and devoted man. Rev. Dr. I -arising with whk'h he maintained

when New York was first visited by that terror and scourge

No man waa ever more in earnest la his railing than was Mr.
Cooke, and none more instrumental than he during the voynge

In 1840, Mr. llatt, one of tbe agents of the Mission, having
been appointed director of. the Government press, Mr. Cooke,
who had received a mercantile education suitable fur tbe posi
; liufe, was called to act as agent for the Mission. . In 1851, in
Consequence of tbe transition state of the Board's work at the

The Postal Service.
Previoas to the year 1850, there waa no Poet-
office in these lelanda. Vessels arriving froni ;
cign porta, bringing mail matter letters or
newspapers, delivered the same at the counting
room of the consignee. There the bags were
opened, the contents tumbled out on a table, sur
rounded by a crowd of expectant and excited
people, who shuffled and picked and assorted to
suit ;themselves; Old residents will remember
that the store of Brewer & Co., (which then stood
on Fort street, on the spot now- occupied as a
grocery by Henry May) was generally the place
to which the mails were taken on their airival
" from home' and there the whole foreign popu
lation of " tho village " was wont to assemble
when the few and far-between letter bags were
known to have been received. In the scramble,
many a letter got into the wrong .hands, and as
for newspapers; they were almost looked upon as
public property, it was quite legitimate to carry
off as many as yoa could lay your hands on, with
the understanding however, that as public prop
erty they were tobc " passed around." - ?
In the matter of intor-island correspondence, a
still more delightful etate of uncertainty existed.
There was no law on the subject of carrying
mails by the coasters, but the practice was for the
masters on their arrival at Honolulu; to leave all
letters previously uncalled (or at the Custom
House, and the Collector thus became ex-officio
the post-master. But tho custom was often un
observed through carelessness of skippers, and
punctuality in correspondence was difficult to
obtain. Letters were sometimes hidden away in
lookers until the, perhaps important purpose for
which they were .written was forgotten. We
recollect an instance in which a gentleman em
barking at Kona for Honolulu in 1853, chancing
to look into tliO tulrlo drawer in the schooner's
cabin, found there a letter on business matters
that 'had been addressed to him from Ililo, bear
in" the date of 1845. That letter had been on its
travels eight years, from port to port, for it waa
nobody's business to see that it reached its deati
nation. It is to private enterprise andenergy that we
owe tbe establishment , of a Post-office at Hono
lulu, and as a consequence, the organized postal
system throughout the Islands which we now
enjoy. In the year' 1850','Mr. H. M. "WTiitney
obtained permission from the Government to par
tition1 'off a portion of the publication 'room of the
Polynesian newspaper, to bo used aa a place
4n 'which io receive and distribute the foreign
mails. A few boxes "were put up, lettered and
speedily leaped bythe public, who of course .were
not slow to appreciate and avail themselves of the
improvement.., Tbe difficulties met in tho Leg in -nifig
;of 1 tho -'enterprise were many, and the
progress was slow, "but perseverance and constant
application soon made tbe 1 ofit-oiuc so necessary
an institution ' that people wondered how they
had managed to get along without. Mr. Whitney
is unquestionably entitled to the honor of being
remembered as the father of the Hawaiian Po6t-.
office. ' , :
, In March,' 1S54, the office, the buHinesa of
which had rapidly; increased, .waa removed to t
Honolulu House, where it has remained up to tiie
present week, a period of seventeen years. lftcr
filling tbe position of.Poetmaeter fur5 X : years
from the conimcnccment'of the 'service,' Mr Whit
ney resigned in 185G, on- the occasion of his
establishing the Pacc Commercial Vdtertiser',
and was buocecded by Mr.' J. 'Jackson, who died
in IS59. Mr. Alvah' K. Clarke followed in the
- Total for seven years.... 170,367
"We have not at band full statistics of the
number of letters received from and forwarded to
foreign countries during tbe years above enumer
ated, but an approximate idea of the increase of
such correspondence during the past six years
may be formed from the fact that in 1865, there
was ' received from foreign countries, 17,466
letters, and 16,119 forwarded, while the numbers
for the year ending April 1, 1871, will amount
to 27,161 letters received, and 23,905 sent.
Under the able .and efficient management of the
present Postmaster General, tbe office is a model
of neatness, regularity and dispatch, and the
verdict 'of the public, which we are happy to
repeat, is that in this department, at all events,
the Government has got ' the right man in the
' ' : 1
The New, Government. Building.
The building which has been erected by the
Government on the site of the old " Polynesian "
office, ia at length completed and in part occupied.
The new building is a handsome structure, a
credit to tbe architect and builder, and a fine
ornament to the city. Built of the best materials
and in the most faithful manner, it is calculated
to stand for an indefinite period, proof against
the gnawing tooth of time, or the wars' of the
elements everything in fact, except the uncer
tain convulsions of mother earth, or the new
necessities for improvement which may be evolved
in the coming years.
The now building has so far been commonly
known as the New Post Office," and in the law
appropriating the funds for its erection, it is so
termed. But this is a misnomer. It would be
just about as appropriate to designate the Court
House building as the Marshal's Office,' or
the " Office of the Police Magistrate," and the
Government House, i' Tho Home Office," as to
call this new structure the Post Office, Beeing
that just one quarter of the building is occupied
for the purposes of the postal "service of the
country. A far more correct name would be the
Government printing house, inasmuch as the
whole upper half of the building and a portion
of the first story is to be devoted to the uses of
the Ministerial printing establishment. In fact,
the design from the beginning was plainly enough
to build a Government printing house,' and the
Post Office was used as a convenient horse on
which to saddle the large expenditure of public
funds necessary to carry out the unpopular pro
ject. No one believes for a moment, that had
tho Ministry in the first place plainly and undis
guiscdly asked the Legislature of 1868 for an
appropriation ; of fifteen or twenty ; thousand dol
lars for building a new printing office, they would
have got it. They were too shrewd for that.
So the project of buildiDg a new Post Office,
which was a popular one because the necessity
was apparent,' was held out to the Legislature,
and the money was voted for that object cheerfully.
They were sufficiently .modest too, in their re
quests, asking for only nine thousand dollars in
the outset, well knowing that twice that sum
would be required in the end. And when that
was expended, they again came forward in 1870,
with the request for an additional trifle of five
thousand, " to complete the new Post Office."
and of course got it. Was it not cleverly engi
neered? The Government printing house was
there all the while, but the guileless representa
tives of the people could'nt see it. And when
the Legislative Assembly for 1872 comes together
to deliberate .for tho good of the. nation, in addi
tion to - .the fourteen . thousand dollars already
"expended Kthey will of course be asked for a bill
of. indemnity for 'probably Jour thousand more,
making in all the sum of eighteen thousand dol
lars, thus skillfully drawn out of the public
money to build a handsome cage for that Minis
tcrial toy, the Government newspaper, under the
agreeable disguise of a Post Office. Let us see
how this Government press account will stand
