through which that Kate of things was brought

The ball room presented a brilliant appearance, a

seldom seen more elegant toilettes than were worn on

ing young native named Kahimoku, with goisl

of stealing a pair ot boots, the pro;crty of Mr. t'. S.
Brtow, troui that gentleman's reaidetiec. It appeare-J
that the prisoner wus one f that nuiiieta.us elm re
cently described in this journal ns vagrants, he
doing absolutely nothing luuiest for a living. He was
a church-goer, for on Sunday morning the boot
were identified on his feet as lie was retiring fivui
the services at Kaumakapili Church, where prrhapt
he had been to repent of the theft. II. wever, at the
Court he declared that lie had bought the lioots of a
fortiguer for SI. &0. but as he cvuld not tell who or
where the said foreigner was, the Magistrate give
liim time to meditate upon the suVjcct by connuittiurf
him to prison and hard labor for six months.
On Wednesday, It. K. Fuller, a colored individual,
whose name has been several time before inscribed
upou the police record, in conuectiou with suudry
queer trantiactions iu chickens, as an amateur each
culturist, and latterly in a case of mayhem in which
he lost a portion of his nose, was arraigned for
assault an 1 battery ou a native. Through interces
sion of counsel he got a postponement uutil Friday.
A native was brought up under warrant of arrest for
deserting bound service, at Mskee's plantation. I'p
to eleveu o'clock nobody appeared on behalf of the
plantation, and the Magistrate, observing that it
savored of contempt of court for parties to procure a
man's arrest under warrant and then neglect to
appear, ordered his discharge. He was, however,
imincd lately arrested again under a warrant from
Koolau, for deserting from McKeague'a plantation.
On Thursday, Kahimoku, the gentlemanly va
grant who got six months on Monday for stealing a
pair of boots iu which be went to church was again
arraigned, this time for stealing a box of water-color
paints, he apparently being of artistic proclivities.
The box was found in the fellow clothes-bsg among
the contents of which (besides other stolen article)
were a number cf shirt collars, bearing the names of
certain well known persona about town. The theft
of the box of paint having been proven, the Magis
trate 4" cheerfully " scnteuced this chttulier d'indut
trie to six months more in the chain gang. Aflcr he
was taken to the Station House, Kahimoku was in
duced to reveal, 14 writing, the whereabouts of a
fine quilt, worth about S15, which had been stolen
from Mr. Bartow. It had been Bold for 82. 60 to one
Attain, who, in a way that was child-likF aud bland
immediately gave it up ou the tequisition of the
police. Iu the case of Fuller, the gentleman of Afri
can persuasion, charged with assault in kicking a
native boy, he somehow mysteriously escaped punishment.
Mr. Ekitok I would respectfully ask through',
you, why it is that Emma street, which ia acknowl
edged to be one of the finest avenue in town, is so
much more neglected by the authorities than the
others. For a number of years past, there but not
beeu a stroke of work done at Government cost on
that street, aud in wet weather, almost the entire
length is a ma&j of sticky mire or a mud puddle,
with here and t!ft;re a rapidly running stream of
water coursing along with force enough to carry a
email wheel for a factory. A street lamp, ou dark
rainy nights, would render walking less uncomforta
ble, but that is not provide!. Something might be
done for the strict perhaps, if a Government officer
or two would go there to live.
Yours, A PnorEBTT Holher.

Mr. Editor So we are to have no more marine
telegraph ? I understand that the Postmaster General
says so so far as he is concerned. Iu every country
where there is shipping, there is a telegraph fur sig
nalling the movements of shipping, maintained nt
Government expense except this. It is said that
there is no special appropriation made by the Legis
lature for this purpose, and that for that reason the
Ministers can't spend any money on it. But if it
was some pet scheme of theirs, do you suppose that
they would let the appropriation bill stand in the
way for a paltry So00, or even 8100? But it
happens to be something in which they are not er
sonally interested, although it is a great publio
convenience, and so the public msy whistle for the
telegraph until they put it up themselves. ;

Dear Advertiser : By late files I sec that you
view the transactions of certain " Immigration
Agents " in search of labor in the South Seas in
much the same light that the best colonial papers view
it. The murder of the missionary Bichop Patteson
has caused a great deal of discussion in regard to the
maimer of obtaining laborers for Queensland and
Fiji, and the system in vogue baa been unsparingly
denounced as slave trade "
By late Melbourne papars I find that a public
meeting had been called " to consider the desirable
ness of memorialising Her Majesty the Queen on the
subject of the labor traffic in the Pacific, to whieh is
attributable the violent deaths of Bishop Patt.sou
and others." The Mayor in opening the meeting
stated that " he most earnestly desired lo witness the
putting down of this unholy traflic."
The Iter. Dr. Macdonal 1 said that " he only won
dered that tbe natives had not risen up and cleared
the islands of all the w hite men. The loss of such a
life as that of Bishop Patteson was an incalculable
loss, aud he should not be ufeing too strong language
if he said that rather than lose such a life, irikh
every sugar und cotton plantation." From a pri
vaie letter from Meltouine I nm permitted to make
the following extracts : " We have recently had a
visit from an eld ret-ident of Fiji who spent two
weeks here on his way to the old country, via Ctylon
and Suez. This gentleman contends that the M-gtem
of obtaining laborers is misrepresented, and that the
natives cf many of the South Sea Iilauds are glad to
go to Fiji to earn something. He is a very pleasant
and inte ligent man, but I coulJ not help feeling that
his self interest, as a large cotton planter, somewhat
influenced his views, although I believe liim to be
quite honest in his opinions. He gave me one very
interesting piece of information that might prove
useful to the statesmen of H awaii. We were speak
ing of the Lew government recently formed in Fiji,
and I aske l him how the government obtained a rev
enue to support the King and his Kuropeau Cabinet.
He said that in the first place that every body on the
island paid a poll tax, and that recently the govern
ment had conquered some of the rebellious or hostile
natives cf the interior, taking a thousand prisoners,
who were condemned to l ibr for six years ; and that
the government sold their labor at 30 per year.
Si you see that they nre assured of a revenue of
30,00 J a year for six years at any rate. Further
more the government is about to attack Borne other
rebels, and if they take 5.000 of these desperate
crimin ils captive, as they hope to do, they will not
inhumanly blow them from the mouths of their great
guns, but, tempering justice with mercy (and thrift),
they will prudently prevent them from eating the
c tton planters, and instead of permitting them to
retard the progress of the new born state, by feasting
on the apostles of civilization, they will be made use
ful to the world and profitable to both cotton planters
and the state."
As one who rejoices in evjry indication of progress
you will feel, as I do, that this is a master stroke of
policy. To have converted those cruel cannibals into
bonedust and fertilizing material, the whole thou
sand, at the price of guano would have realized a
very small sum ; but now their infl lencc for good
may be likened into a perennial plant yielding fruit
for'many years. Kkder.

An I'm; iv own Island World. t.'p to the time of
the destruction of whale ships by Sernmes at the As
ctnsion Islands, no American man-of-war bad ever
visited this important rendezvous of whalers in the
Pacific Ocean. There are hundrrda and even thou
sands of islands in the Pacific, many of which have
no name ; otiersare only sighted by an occasional
tbip going to or returning from orts in Axis, W'e
send i-xpe litions to discover the phenomena of the
North Pole. But the Pacific Archipelago a great
islind woild is to-day half unknown. There ought
to be an American naval station somewhere among
these island. At present, they are attached to the
Fibt In In station, and for this reason are almost
wholly neglected. When a shipmaster desire to
commit barratry, he has a secure hiding place
among these islands. Our nutional ships are never
seen there ; and merchantmen keep clesr of them,
unless an occasional landing is made for vegetable
11 1 other sup lies.
A few years since a shipmaster now sailing out of
San Francisco stop ped at one of those unknown islands
fir a snrply r f wood. He found thr-ro two FuglUh
runaway siilors (probably) and about 15 native
women. There was nothing upon the island bnt an
abuti lince of coco ;i nuts, with grer numbers of fish
in the lagoon. The captain b ft an assortment of
rucli tropical seeds as be had with hirn, including
melon, orange and sweet potatoes, adding to the
little ftork a pair of small pigs. Ihe island soon
le ismii 1 soon j
lalemen for tho i'il
ne years after- i
ight from that Tu
afterwards became a marvel among whalemf
wealth of its tropical fruits, and some
wards a load of live hoes were brougl
inland to San Francisco.
There are hundreds of these islands, says the S. F.
llullrtin, over which no sovereignty haa been extend
ed, some inhabited and other? waiting for inhabitants,
au 1 nearly all of the larger ones capable of producing
a profusion of tropical fruits. Thee Islands, if not
already, nre likely to tecnme the rendezvous of all the
robbers and pirates of the Pacifil Ocean. Here the
freebooters can find refuge and settle the file of
ninny a ship SO certaiuly that 110 one w ill be left to
say by w hat ' peril of the sea " she was lost. Tiers
ought to be a naval station where war ships isy
rendezvous and have some special watch and over
sight of this half uukuown island world.
