Had no subsidy been
no promise made that

the British Colonies," we might with decency :
and propriety plead poverty, and shirk the pay-
ment. Hut after what has been done and
promised, our national honor demands that the
subsidy be paid. Otherwise, we shall be justly
branded as a faithless nation. Is the national
honor and credit worth preserving, in the estima
tion of Ministers ? Or is the motto on our shield
an empty sentiment " Ua mau ke ea o ka aina

That piquant writer of ehort essays, Fanny
Fern, speaking of " Literary Aspirants," rather
forcibly sr.ys : " It is the most astouishing thing
that persons who have not sufficient education to
spell concctly, to punctuate properly, to place
capital letters in the right places, should, when
other means of support fail, send M.S. for pub
lication." Looking beyond the realm of litera
ture, are rot those words capable of a very wide
application? How many men falter and stumble
and fail ir the battle of life, simply because they
have undertaken to follow a pursuit for which
tluy have neither the knowledge nor the expe
rience requisite to success. They have mistaken
their vocation. We sometimes hear the remark,
that an excellent mechanic was spoiled when
such an one was bred to a rrofeseion, and rice
vrsa. But there is perhaps no pursuit to which

a means of success as would be a treaties ou

The ill-success which has attended some of tlie
agricultural s-euIations on these island!!, from
the "great expectations" of frilk. culture in
1S44, down t not a few of the undertaking of
later years, uiav undoubtedly be attributed to
fuct that their rojectors were p.-'ssesoJ of
hut little tr no experience in the ddmiic to
which they a: j lied thir energies and their capi
tal. They were sanguine of eucccss, and thcre
f re lavish of their means; they lacked practical
knowledge of the business, and tlicrcforo thoy
failed. Nor is the history of our agricultural
Operations by any means peculiar to ourselves
alone. Tiie same thii g has ocvurred in every
country where the staple product, instead of be
ing exported in the raw state, is manufactured
on the spit. And the reverses and experiences
of the past have now, it is believed, schooled and
educated our agriculturists to the point when
blunders and failures are no longer to be ex
pecteJ, and success though slow is sure.

the scene of a conflagration. A fire was kindled in &

when the smoke attracted atteution from people in
the street, who rushed up pant-ingly, and put out

I Several persons who happened to be stirring in

bottles and boxes, and as no fire was used there it

Dear Sir. I trust you will allow me through
your columns to give public expression to a few Meat
that recent Iabora iu public improvement, uave
brouuht up. and in connection therewith to cfler
few euggestioua. J
To a returned resident, Honolulu aa a city ahowa
marked improvement in tho past ten or twelve year
in ita buildings, streets, wharves, ko , all denoting
the onward march of progress in both a commercial
and social point of view ; and when one aces any
branch of trade or buaineaa not in keeping with the
progressive spirit of the age, It not only attracta
notice from its corippicuousueM, but ia an oflered
insult to good aetise and taste, au l the higher the
degree of improvement in other thing tho greater
will be the contrast.
These ideas have euggected themselves by such
sign-work as has been done lately in our midst,
showing that that branch of trade, instead of keep.

is wail .
very perceptible in the gn-work painted on A. W, f j

one from all sides, harrass the feelings and disturb i I
the mind totally the reverse of the lettering on the H4,f
