a matter for eocgratulatioo that the table of domestic

internal industry is .till contending with the results of
m injudicious ootlajs and unforeseen expenditures, it
t do to rely opjo them (the Increasing resources) for
mporary deficiency that may happen. Some line of

ions of this year have been largely in excess of the last.

: is through them that we must hope for extension and
f t the present, at least, a large proportion of the valoe of
exports must be used to cancel obligation, already in-

i total value to our general business resources, or to pay
f.r the goods imported.

A Medley and A Loan.
We can imagine a lugubrious euiile covering
the faces of the readers of the Gazette on "Wed
nesday morning last. The Opera BouiTe seems to
be infectious, for our Ministry baa tried its hand
in setting the organ to a piece of music with four
voices, but all "jangled, and out of tune."
Rumor has had it for months past, that the
Cabinet was not a " unit ' scarcely io har
monyand the dieadful discord played on the
organ this wek, certainly gives force to the
rumor. The first leader, with its inane plati
tudes, and would-be cunning arrangement of
those treacherous things the figures, was doubt
less dictated for the Finance Department, word
by word by His Foreign Excellency, the Ruling
Genius, across a table, on which those remarka
ble legs were cocked in elegant abandon. By the
figures it is attempted to prove that as a commu
nity we are not losers by the disaster in the
Arctic Ocean ; that in fact, we are some fifty
thousand dollars ahead, and have nothing to feel
The next writer is quite evidently in the inter
est of the Interior Department and the Building
Ring though we have no reason for intimating
any collusion between the two, and are free to
say so. This writer, however, feels that the loss
to the public by the Arctic disaster necessitates
the erection of public buildings (that we can
do without) for the purpose of giving employ
ment to mechanics, and winds up by proposing to
borrow sixty or a hundred thousand dollars on the
credit of the Government with which to prosecute
the work. We propose that the Interior Depart
ment take the fifty thousand that the Finance
Department has cleared, and t;o ahead.
Then, under cover of a correspondent, we have
another opinion, evidently the production of
some official who is interested in trade (of
which class we have no lack) who, from the
advantage of a double stand-point, is rather more
reasonable in bis theorizing, but still very weak
in some of his conclusions. The fourth voice
comes weakly maundering from the commercial
column, and is pitched so low that we can only
Taking the cue from our leader of last week on
" Retrenchment," the Ministry have succeeded
in reducing their position to an absurdity. In
view of an apparent crisis that calls for cool
heads and careful management, they have fairly
gone daft. They see no resource open to them
in this extremity but to borrow, and leave tbe
dear people to pay when they can.
For the purpose of showing at a glance, what
an " uncertain sound" comes from the Govern
ment organ in discussing current topics, and
illustrating the disadvantage of employing too
many cooks to compound the broth," let us
read a few paragraphs taken seriatim from its
utterances : - ,

The total loss of the Arctic wha.iug fleet, has thrown out of
business calculations a large amount of money, some $200,000
as it has been calculated, most of which, as wages to seamen,
would hare been expended in this town in purchasing g ods,
and tbe balance in procuring supplies for the ships. Ho much

So much more money excess of exports this year over the
last has been brought into the country, and has been added to
our general business resources, and our producers are able to
buy so much more f od as those figures indicate in value.
Just this amount of means, above those of last year is placed
at our disposal, herewith to pay for what we eat, drink,
wear and use, or in other words, to pay for the goods which
have been imported.

Does it not appear that at the present time, a sufficient
amount of the loaa authorised by the Legislature of 1868, to
perfect the projected public buildings should be negotiated, and
that the money, (aa it would certainly be.) distributed among
mechanics for labor, among traders for sulkies to mechanics,
and among importers for materials? It strikes us that irotn
sixty to a hundred thousand dollars distributed among our
population by this means would be very acceptable at present,
and would go bur to ameliorate the bard limes which many

jvmr wow. J
In closing, I will merely add that the calls for economy are
particularly in place at this time, for no one can foresee the
future, and all should be prepared as far as lies in their power
to meet any change of circumstances whatever. A proper
economy is at ail times, places and circumstances a duly
which every one owes to himself as well as to the community
at large, in order to aa assured prosperity.
" Beware of getting in debt," is the lesson
every one learns sooner or later in life, either by
oft repeated precept, by numerous examples, or
bjr painful - experience. How - many otherwise
fair prospects of men have been blasted, oppor
tunities for usefulness thwarted, noble natures
perverted and soured, and even crimes committed,
or the man has gone through life a stunted and
dwarfed individuality, all because he carried the
burden of debt. And the same rule will apply
to nations as to individuals, with of course cer
tain well understood exceptions.
It has been the boast of Hawaiians that theirs
was a government without a debt, and it was a
creditable boast. For this, little Hawaii " has
been commended in the journals of Europe and
America, as maintaining a full-fledged system of
independent government, with public schools and
a respectable show of public improvements, but
no public debt. Up to tbe time when the present
Ministry (or rather its Ruling Genius) assumed
tbe reigns of power, each succeeding cabinet has
left office with money in the Treasury, and not a
dollar of debt. It remained for the present
Rulers to enter the wedge and to conduct the
country, by gradual and insidious means, into
the trap which is now disclosed the pretended
necessity for incurring a national debt.
What was expected, has now occurred. The
Ministry have plainly intimated their intention
of borrowing what for this country is a large sum
sixty to a hundred thousand dollars. First, let us
aslc, where is the pressing necessity for incurring
this burden of debt of placing this millstone
upon the neck of tbe nation? It does not exist.
The plea that it is necessary in order to find em
ployment for mechanics, who otherwise -will suf
fer from hard times, is simply shallow bun
combe." No one credits this sudden affectation
of regard and sympathy for the dear people, who
eventually must pay the debt in increased taxa
tion. What, then, is the ulterior object of the Min
istry ? Plainly, there are two. First, and most
apparent to the understanding, is a desire, which
is natural enough and under appropriate circum
stances quite praiseworthy to establish a repu
tation for business energy and industry in carry
ing on public improvements ; of creating some
thing to which they can point exultingly when
asked by an inquisitive Legislature as to what
they have done with the people's money. And
secondly, that which is not so apparent on the
la.ee, but which nevertheless indubitably exists
a settled determination to bring the government of
the country financially to so impoverished a con
dition that utter bankruptcy m.xy be brought
about at will, whenever the scheme shall be ripe
it into the market of the world's
The vicious system of establishing a national
debt once fairly under way, the next movement
will be the issuance of pa per money, of which
we have already the " straw " indicating the di
rection of the coming breeze, in the shape of
" silver certificates."
Our duty as public journalists is to watch and
to warn. And we now warn our readers that
the reckless, though by no means purposeless
motto of the present Ministry is " After us the
The Australian Line.
It appears to be likely now that a strong effort
will be made during the coming session of the
American Congress to secure a proper subsidy
for the Webb line of steamers between California
and Australia. The New York Chamber of
Commerce, which is an influential body, will, it
is said, memorialize Congress on tbe subject, and
by a late telegram it is stated that Mr. Webb
bad an interview with President Grant on the
15th ult , when he called attention to the danger
of American lines of steamships having to give
way to British lines, unless something is done by
Congress. The failure to obtain a subsidy for
the Webb line at the last session, was owing
to the wide-spread dislike to subsidies generally,
and mainly to the fact that an omnibus measure
was presented to Congress, asking for grants
covering large amounts, for a half a dozen lines
of ocean steamers, in every possible quarter. The
magnitude of tbe demand killed the whole. It is
to be hoped that the matter will be better man
aged this year.
From the South, we learned by the last mail
that a conference of representatives from the dif
ferent Governments of Australia and New Zealand
was in session at Melbourne, discussing the
subject of postal communications. The opinion
was generally expressed in favor of the route via
San Francisco, both for passengers and mails, as
quicker and more comfortable. The New South
Wales Government intended by the next mail, to
give notice of its withdrawal from the contract
with the P. & O. Company for the mail service
via the Suez route. In the Victorian Parliament,
Mr. Duffy has stated that the Government intend
to withdraw from the Suez Bervice, and to invite
the attention of Parliament to the respective ad
vantages of the San Francisco and Cape routes.
The Melbourne Ministry is also stated to intend
urging that Melbourne ought to be the terminus
of the former route. Now that the attention of
the different Governments are aroused to the im
portance of the San Francisco route, there is
every probability that it will be subsidized suffi
ciently to be continued.
Korth What pleasanter spot, James, than a country

The Oahu cemetery is a pleasant place. Situ
ated conveniently apart from the town, just at
the entrance of the beautiful Nuuanu valley, our
island " city of the dead contains many a let
tered monument and sculptured urn " of those
who have gone before, that makeB it an interest
ing spot in which to pass a quiet hour. The
sentiment of respect for the ashes of the loved
and departed, is one that is common to all, and
we delight to adorn and beautify their last sleep
ing places. Thus in strolling through our ceme
tery, one frequently sees some shrub or tree
newly planted as a memento, or a garland of
flowers hung on the tomb-Etone by the band of a
mourning friend. But these evidences of unfor
getfulness are, we regret to observe, not so com
mon or frequent as to hide the disagreeable truth
that the Oahu cemetery, though a pleasant place,
has been and still is shamefully neglected, by the
public. . Animals have been allowed to roam at
large, (although that has not been the case of
late) shrubbery has been neglected and destroyed,
and monuments and tombs broken and suffered to
fall into decay, Except when. tbe imperative
necessity arises of going there to bury the dead,
scarcely any one seems to give a thought to the
God's acre." Recently one of the trustees of
the Cemetery Association a body which appears
to have a very -impalpable, shadowy existence
endeavored by advertising in the papers to get
the members together for the transaction of busi
ness, but there was only himself and another at
the meeting ! Ought there not to be an effort
made to shake off this shameful anathv?

raOM OUR TRAVELING CORRESPONDENT.
Hamakua, September 15, 1871.
Leaving Waipio on the morning of tbe 14th, at the
top of the hill we separated ; the S. M. to keep on
through this district and the next to Ililo, Y. C.
to branch off under the care of a guide to Mr. Par
ker's ranch on the side of Mauna Kea. Retracing our
steps to a point on the main road where a small
track branched off, we commenced traversing the
blindest, most unpromising trail that ever started
from anywhere to go anywhere else. Bog-holes were
to be met with as often as " I's " in Gen. McCook's
auto-biography in Frank Leslie's Illustrated, and were
aa profound and obscure as a Gazette editorial. It
called forth all the dogged stubborness inherent in
the hoki we rode (as well as that possessed by the
other one on his back) to work through. As for our
guide (who was on foot) he managed to catch up
with us several times twice anyhow ; once to let us
know that he thought he had earnt the promised
wages ; the second time to say that he wasn't going
any further. Demonstrating to him that 'twas aa
cheap to go forward aa back, that he couldn't get
any muddier anyhow, and that the road mttsf im
prove farther on, he concluded to stick to us through
thick and thin L e., mud and water. At one time
though we thought we'd lost him for good. We
(that is boki and I) had sunk into a mud flow that
had filled up an old crater, and as we disappeared
from sight the thought occurred to one-half of us
'gracious I've forgotten the guide. I never yet could
rest quiet while I knew a fellow-creature was in dis
tress, and here I was sinking into sweet forgetful
ness, and leaving that poor kanaka out there on tbe
lonely heath, with no one to tell him where to go,
and with nothing to eat except a double-barrelled
cylinder-escapement patent cut-off opera-glass that I
had borrowed from the S. M., so as to look like a
tourist. I to desert him thusT after he had told me
that he was a poor orphan, and that he knew the
way to Parker's? Never! Shaking ' off the leth
argy that was stealing over us, we once more stood
on dry land, looking like the rough clay model of the
colossal bronze statue of the Father of His Country
in Union Square, N. Y. Thank Heaven our guide,
our gentle orphan, our much prized kanaka, who
knew the way to Parker's, was safe ; asleep under a
tree to be sure, but still safe. Need I add that the
ton or two of mud that still clung to us seemed light
as air . now that the load of apprehension had been
lifted from our minds? I guess not. Irom tins
time until we reached the ranch that faithful guide
never wandered far from tbe club of clay that hung
behind the hoki. We in fact kept a watchful eye upon
each other, I to see that he didn't run away and hook
the opera-glasses spoken of, and be to see that I didn t
run off (ron ha ! ha !) and leave the wdd cattle pan
dering aVound us to hook him. At last -e hed tte
Parker-house, and aside from the hospitable welcome
we received, 'twas worth while going there if twas
only to find out how it was that that g"de.knew
way to Parker's. Being your wrrponder and
therefore feeling that any information I may receive,
or knowledge I may acquire, at no matter what sac
rifice of personal comfort . belongs to the tr.
impart to you gladly the secret of how to get to
Pafker's, that has so long been treasured by our
faithful guide. Selecting any pomt VT3r"

.v.- kkIo f,.- a treneral thins: tbe branch
roads underlying them lead to Parker's. Resting places
are to be found scattered along the route. lUey are
built by felling a large tree across the way, and
after one or two trials you will find it quite a relief to
let the animal you are riding get his forelegs over,
and then pause for a while. While he is hanging
there, you can stand astride of him on the log, and
and wish you hadn't come, or or that you were
dead, or, in fact you can amuse yourself m a hun
dred different ways, if you feel like it. There is one
thing that Y. C. would advise no man to do whde on
this road to Parker's, and that is while up to his
knees in some toft spot, to solemnly declare that of
all the dashed sloughs of dashed mud that it was
ever my dashed luck to get into, this doubly dashed
bog is the worst " for he will have to alter his views
when up to his neck in the next one. In the wet
season, tbe route we epeak of now, is put out to
soak, and visitors reach Parker's by balloon from
Waimea. The wild cattle that one meets wherever
there is dry land enough to hold them up, need not
trouble the traveler, as ihey rarely if ever gore any
one to death, unless it may be a stranger, or a huole,
or somebody they don't like, or in fun, or something
of that sort. Plenty of people (we are told) have
reached Parker's without taking a horn on the way,
and our mind is relieved upon being informed that
the numerous bones that we see scattered about, are
not human.' We are the more inclined to credit these
statements, as we sec a gay party of some eighteen
natives, young men and women, setting off for Wai
mea. They are the last of the wedding-party who
escorted young Mr. Parker and his bride home some
little time ago, and as they ride off crowned with
bright leit, imparting something of their gaiety to the
horses they bestride, (can a lady bestride a horse?
Ed) they present a very animated, and withal in
tensely Hawaiian appearance.
The thick gloom and stormy cloud that hid all
Mauna Kea from our gaze, was faithfully reflected
on our brow as we saw our hopes of reaching its
summit dashed to the ground. As there is a com
pensating principle ever attendant upon all disap
pointment however, we found it in this case evolved
from the statement made by Mr. Parker, that there
was nobody on the ranch at that time who could act
as a guide over the twenty miles of bog and fen,
rock, stone, and souar," that lay between us and
the summit. Do you remember Mr. Editor what the
French King did when " with twice ten thousand
men, he marched so bravely up the hill? " If you
do, you know all about the movements of Y. C,
until we reached the main-road, and shortly after the
road-side residence of an old Nantucket friend
whom Providence had placed upon that spot some
many years ago, in order that, in lapse of time he
might give us a welcome.
All that we have to say in reference to the road
downrom Parker's, is that it took two guides to
pilot us through in safety ; one knew the way through
the mud and water, the other, over the roots. Gail
Hamilton remarkes in her JVew Henriade, that
nobody ever knew anything about hen before, and
we can say now that nobody ever knew anything
about root before this present writing. The right
that trees have to preempt tbe soil, and tangle up
the ground with roots, has been clearly acknowl
edged, and we may submit to their bulging out in
unexpected places when pressed for room underneath.
When we construct a road through a forest, we do
not expect the uncovered roots to -get up and clear
out, any more than we expect a man to give up his
Beat in a street car to a woman. No sir ! as in one
case so in the other, there are certain natural laws
governing roots as well as men, that cannot be vio
lated with impunity. Very good that's all right
but when it oomes to a great big over-grown bully
of a tree jamming the ground so full of tough fibre
that it looks like a gigantic fishing net, and theu
begins to send out long shoots from its trunk like
ropes that anchor themselves around every stone,
and as they crawl set themselves up like the Greek
letter Q lta time a protest was entered against such
' goings on." Not satisfied with this, the tree
a fiord 8 support to a complicated climbing parasite
that hangs around it like the tangled rigging of a
wreck around tbe main-mast. This new ally sends
its roots down from above, and in writhiug twisting
festoons snares the unhappy passer by. One of the
most uneasy sensations that Y. C. ever experienced
was when one of these loops caught him under the
the chin at the same time that his hold pitched head
long over a sly foot trap set on the edge of a steep in
cline. However, his guides unhooked him from that one,
his umbrella from another and his cane from a third
one, "snaked" the hoki on to his feet again, re
united the disrupted " members of the press," and
soon landed us " in safety on the alanui. We
rode up to Mr. Cs door humming "Ain't I glad
I'm out ob de wilderness " and, as I said before,
found in him a hospitable friend with whom we
talked till late of " Auld Lang Syne." Things
around these parts look blue, that is, for the hus
bandman, but after all what is required most is
labor. Coffee does well here, so do oranges, so
would ramie, olona, wheat and corn, but as long as
cattle and sheep roam about seeking what they may
devour, nothing will bring in so many dollars as the
manufacture of the what-do-you-call-it, rum okole
hao made from the ki root. And that reminds me to
mention that bottles are in great demand here. I
have been told (and the tears stood in the eyes of my
informant) that bottles had run short, and that the
efforts of the company engaged in the distillation of
this exhilarating beverage had been seriously ham
pered in consequence. A supply is expected when
the senior partner returns from Honolulu, (he is
stopping with Fyfe for a few months) but as his en
tertainers can't think of letting him return just at
present, the ' mill" is only running half the time
now. Now it strikes us that we have seen quite a
number of bottles scattered about Honolulu (enough
for the present any how) and some enterprising
person might ship up here a few dozen gross to feel
the market. The price of the fluid remains the same
one dollar per bottle and this too without any
diminution in quality.
Meeting the Worthy Secretary of tbe Hawaiian
Board on the road, we heard again of the S. M. Ar
riving at " Amina's," on tbe border of the Hamakua
District, we found that the S. M. with thoughtful
care had left here the material for a supper, and may
be a breakfast too. . Items ; three boxes of sardines,
a can of stewed green peas, about a pound of sugar,
a dozen cakes of hard bread, seme biscuit, a chunk
of cheese, some potted tongue and ham, a lot of tea,
and full directions to make up all deficiencies with
chicken, kalo, fish and squid. In the corner of the
room a heaped-up pile of mats and quilts invites us
to repose, and by the flickering light of a tall candle
we finish this epistle. , . Qcibk.
