There are some writere for the press of this city
who eecm to consider their own postulates so im
pregnable that they seldom appear in print save
to defend their own cat-tie, and as a general thing,
their egoism id so intense that they cannot admit
that others may be right in the slightest degree.
Those who happen to hold a different opinion,
and express it, are dogmatically told that they
are displaying their ignorance ; and this settles
the disputed point. But is it not barely possible
that the positive writer may be only makin a
sorry display of his own ignorance?
We, in our "ignorance," believe that the
" Certificate of Deposit " of the Treasury, coun
tersigned by tbj Bank, is paper money, and cur
rent as such, and differs somewhat from a note of
hand or a Bank check. The National Bank
notes of the United States, certify that the Bank
has made a deposit of bond9, and the well-known
signature of Spinner " hokls the United States
Treasury responsible for the payment. Our
"certificates" say, that the Bank has deposited
coin, and they receive the vise of the Finance
Department, and forthwith pass" from hand to
hand, current as paper money. In fact, the
Bank persists in paying them out against its
checks. The only difference and a very essen
tial one for the public between the United
States Bank notes and the Hawaiian, is that the
former are authorized by Congress, while the lat
ter are without the authorization which binds the
faith of the Government.
It is our province as journalists to be con
stantly on guard to protect the public interests,
and when the only enemy which those interests
have to fear, safely entrenched at the Government
House, persists in mysteriously masking every
movement, it is our privilege to make feints
against its line, to teet its soundness. Our little
article of last week was such a feint, and from
the uncertain, sputtering snarl which it has
evoked from the intrenchments, we incline to be
lieve that we have struck a weak spot ; that if
we " did not startle the community, we ought to
have done so. "
We are aware that in the case of the silver
certificate, itwas cunningly urged, and with a
color of reason, that it " took the place of cum
bersome coin." Will this reasoning hold the same
force as against gold coin ?
We have not implied fraud as against the citi
zens nor any class of them, far from it ; but let
the public judge of the force of the implication as
against His Majesty's Cabinet, or rather its
ruling genius. We have no desire to insult the
morals of the people are well kept, and are in a
very satisfactory condition." He adds " Roads
are not neglected ; we find the sum of 5,000 on
the estimates to make a road to the windward
side of the island (over the Pali) to facilitate the
transmission of sugar ; and there ia a contractor
ready to do the work for 0,000. The editor
get quite e'oqnent on the subject, and affirms
that good roads are the necessary adjuncts of
civilization and agricultural progress; and he
adds, indignantly, why is this important work
delayed ? Why indeed ! " We thank the editor
of the Herald for thus sending us back our en
quiry, yet unanswered why is this important
work delayed ?

A Medical College.
A writer in the last Gazette, over the signature
of "P. P." (Peripatetic 'Potbecary?) having
read our article on Native Physicians " several
weeks since, says that therein we ' tacitly ad
mitted that the Hawaiian race is dying out,"
but that the reasons assigned by us are manifestly
insufficient to account for the decline of the race
One would suppose that here he would go on and
state what in bis opinion really is the cause, but
he declares that is not his province to inquire !
A new school of physic surely must this be, which
will undertake to prescribe for the patient before
ascertaining the nature of the disease. But the
remedy proposed for the diminution of the popu
lation is one that is declared to be perhaps unat
tainable, at present, " namely, to educate the
people." Are the suffering, dying Hawaiians
then to be told that they must be educated before
they can be physicked? Again, this close ob
serving P. P. tells ub that " the habits of the
people are not worse, are not more depraved now
than they were one hundred years ago," and that
the native kahunas are probably as honest and
intelligent to-day as their prdeccssors were a
hundred years ago," and that "it is proper for
ministers of religion to inculcate worldly wisdom
as well as to teach the truths of the gospel."
Now what does all this twaddle tend to? Why
this the writer advocates the establishment of a
medical school or college in Honolulu, where
young men, possessed of a common English edu-
I cation, can in two or three years be qualified to
practice, f his is precisely what we represented
as being done by Dr. Judd with his class f na
tive youtlis, with the exception that the dignity
of a college" is not aspired to, and the instruc
tion is given, as it necessarily must be, in the Ha
waiian language. That class has now, we believe,
the advantages of visiting with its teacher,
the Queen's Hospital, the Leper Hospital, the
Insane Asylum, and a free diBjiensary to the
poor," which P. P. thinks " would afford ample
clinical advantages for students." Iiut then. !
after all, this is not a College." One of Dr.
Judd's students, af ter Beveral years close applica
tion, and with whatever of ability, skill and
judgment he might be possessed, could never be
recognized by this " Peripatetic Tothecary " as
anything but an ignorant medical practitioner,
because he had never been through eollege. For
P. P. declares that " any attempt at medical ed
ucation less than the regular collegiate, is a step
in the wrong direction."
We fancy that we see in our mind's eye the
Medical College of Honolulu, with its " very re
spectable faculty," and its full classes of" regu-
students, with P. P. as the presiding genius,
condition to add any more to its already filled
wards. The additional expense that will be
incurred, is as we informed, inconsiderable, and
if the funds at the command of the Trustees will
not suffice for the purpose, we feel confident there
are ways and means to supply the deficit. We
all remember the cloud of improbability which
hung over the project of the Hospital, when
the late King of happy memory first put his
vigorous shoulder to the wheel. His ardent wish
was that all the suffering among his native sub
jects particularly, should be the recipients of the
noble charity which he was the zealous and
active agent of founding. We may say here,
that the suggestion, of which we were but the
publishers, originated with one of the Trustees
of the Hospital. Thus it would uppear that
our neighbor does not invariably speak " by

Speaking of our productions, there is a volume

urally enough our critic thinks that The hotel

"There she Blows."
Undeterred by the awkward experience of pre
vious attempts to grapple with the subject of the
departure of the whalers, the Gazette of this
week persists in again " putting its foot into it."
It intimates its belief that the business of Arctic
whaling will before long have become so unprofi
table as to be almost entirely abandoned by ship
owners on the Atlantic coast, but yet that it will
still be prosecuted on a small scale by people in
inis ocean long alter it is given up by New Bed
ford and New London. Now if the old-estah-
lished ship-owners the " Nabobs of the cities of
blubber," as the Gazette has elegantly termed
them with all their experience in the business,
and with all the facilities for outfits and men at
hand, cannot afford to continue the whale-fiehery,
where are we to find the margin on which to op
erate from the ports of this ocean, where the cost
of vessels and everything pertaining to the busi
ness is dearer, and where inen "green hands,"
more properly of the requisite class are not it
isBaid available? But the truth is, in favor of
San Francisco as a place of resort for the whalers,
that the supplies, purchased and manufactured
cheaply in the Atlantic ports, can be seat over
land more promptly and at less charge for trans
portation than they can be sent here via the Horn
and the same remark will apply to the procuring
and transportation of crews. It is quite proba
ble that the "Nabobs" before-mentioned have
taken all these facts into consideration before or
dering their ships to rendezvous at San Fran
cisco, and that they are quite as well posted on
all the pros and cons of the case as the sapient
But by way of a clincher to the arguments in
favor of Honolulu as a cheaper place of call and
discharge for the whalers than its rival, the
Gazette very ingenuously concludes :
" It is almost unnecessary to Doint out the mtt
difference in the price at which crews are paid off
here and that at which they will be paid off in San
Francisco. It may have been when a half dozen ships
visited that port they could get the Consular rates
from here at which to pay off, but the moment the
whole fleet resort there they will have to pay off at
rates equal to the market price there, and on the full
amount of oil and bone landed. If. as we are toM.
owners frequently lose by paying of at Consular rates
here, it is evident that their losses there would be so
great in this respect as to be ruinous.
" These reasons, together with the fact that San
Francisco is a home port, where all the difficulties of
the season can be, and generally are, settled, as some
have found to their very great inconvenience, will
make San Francisco an impracticable and expensive
port, and one, in our opinion, at which whalers can
not recruit so long as the business is carried on from
ports in the East."
Which, being submitted to the process usually
applied to blubber, means, when boiled down "
that, "Contradistinguished from the practice
wnicn nas obtained in Honolulu, crews will be
paid off m San Francisco at honest and fair rates,
on all that they catch ; and that if any injustice
nas been done or outrage committed on the crew
during the season, the remedy will there be
promptly found and applied." Really, the zeal of
our contemporary hatb eaten up his discretion, and
betrayed him into a most unfortunate way of
'putting things." Well may the masters and
owners of whalers exclaim, Save ub from our

We had the pleasure of listening to a lecture by
Arch-Deacon Mason on Friday evening of last
week, at Bnffum's Hall, the subject being "The
Indirect Influence of Popular Writers of Fiction
on Social Institutions; as Exemplified by the
writings of Charles Dickns." The reverend gen
tleman opened his subject by an apology for as
piring to the task of delineating the great author's
characters an apology that we lelt at the cfose of
the lecture was not called for. Charles Dickens
saw with many others the abuses thut bad crept
into the administration of the Poor-Laws in Eng
land laws wisely and humanely framed for the
amelioration of the poor, and while the humanita
rian of one class laid before the rulers of the peo
ple facts and statistics, the knowledge thus ob
tained failed to arouse the people to seek an
efficient remedy. Then this man. gifted with the
power of reaching the hearts of his fellow men.
set before them the world-renowned types of
ignorance and seir-siifHciency in power in his
word-pictures of the work-house officials and the
Board of " Oliver Twist.'- and though the speaker
thousht that thene characters might be somewhat
overdrawn, still he knew that activn. whaln..
reform in the management of the poor houses and
work houses followed upon the publication of that
novel ; and he might have added that the exvose
of the conduct of Fang the Police Justice fa bona
fide character) was followed by the heretofore long
tieiayed expulsion from office of the petty tyrant
The hospitals of England were then spoken of;
and here, where every provision had been made
for the proper care of patients as far as lunds and
buildings were concerned, we found that through
apathy and careleRsness, abuses had crept iu. and
without knowing it almost, the patients were un
der the charge of mercenary, selfish unfeeling
wretches, whose only motive was that of gain.
The well-intentioned but red-tape-entangled
efforts of the law-makers were expended in vain
to ons.. these harpies, and it was not until Sairy
Gamp and Betsy Prig were shown up in "Martin
Chuzzlewit " that people began to look to the quali
fications of their nurses before entrusting them
with the care of their sick triends and fellow mor
ula. Now, the Florence Nightingales or our day.
like the Vestals of old. who kept alive the sacred'
fires in the heathen temples, consecrate their pure
lives to the still more sacred task of nourishing
the waning spark of life. Our sensibilities are no
longer shocked by the picture of two gin-befuddled
women (nurses so called) quarreling over their
pi-ey, nqr are we called upon to shudder, as Mrs.
Gamp, preparing for her night watch (!) by the
side of the fever-consumed sufferer, is absorbed in
making herself comfortable for the night, and only
approacnes tne bed of her patieat to pluck from

we must confess that children are olten very much
in the way,) and many a parent, kind and affec-1.
tionate. feels that 'twill be a relief to them when
the holidays are over. And so Dickens could draw
a picture of Dotheboys Hall" and its precious
head "Squeers." so true to the life, that inc. H.xn
one letter was sent him threatening suits for libel ;
and thus while complimenting his descriptive
powers, enduring bis truthfulness.
In conclusion, the speaker drew attention to the
unvarying aspect which his "bad" characters
present. There is none of that false glitter that is
thrown by the yellow-covered litterateur around
bis characters. Dickens' Sykes or Tobin are never
heroes; they are simply thieves and murderers fit
associates of the Jew Fagin. and as such they live
in squalor and wretchedness, with the fallows
ever before their eyes, and beyond this, nothing
The scene m the condemned cell, where the
miserable wretch Fagin anticipated hia doom, was
brought before as vividly by the speaker, and the
lecture closed with the grand summary of lile
"All Ihe world's a stage.
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exit and their entrances ;
And one msn in his time plays many arts.
His acts being seven stages. At first, the infant.
Mewling and puking in ihe nurse's arms ;
And then, the whining school-boy, with his satchel,
And shining morning fare, creeping like snail .
Unwillingly to school ; and then, the lover.
Bighing like a furnace, with a woeful ballad
Blade to his mistress eyebrow ; then, a soldier.
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard
Jealous of honor, sudden and quick in quarrel.
Reeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth , And then, the Justice
With fair, round belly, with good capon lined,
With eyes severe, and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances.
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon ;
W ith spectacles on me, and poach at side ;
His youthful hose well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank ; and his big, manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange, eventful history.
Is second childishness, and mere oblivion ;
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything."
