An Oldtimo Labor Speculation
The business of kidnapping the natives of tho
K Pacific Islands has of late become of such world
wide notoriety, that anything relating thereto is
reimrded with interest. A universal expression
of righteous indignation has heen echoed from
the press of Europe and America at the relation
of some or tbe horrors of the new slave trade
which have appeared in print. The New Zealand

labor trade, as the bueinefs of kidnappers was
termed, but we have so far failed to learn of any
definite or decisive action taken in the premises.
Meantime there is no question but that the man
etealers, warned of coming interference in their
business, are improving the present time in pro
curing as many cargoes of the live 6tock as possi
ble. The cotton and sugar plantations of Tahiti,
Fiji and Queensland imperatively need labor, and
the South Sea Islands constitute the only availa
ble source of Bupply at present.
A gentleman residing at present in Honolulu,
and who fcxik a part in the sceucs described, 1ms
furnished us with the outlines of thc voyage of
the rt shin that ever cnza2ed in the business of
procuring labor in the South Seas, which, as
being of interest in this connection, we transcribe.
Tho ship Sophia, of six hundred tons burthen,
built in Calcutta, owned in London, and com
manded by Captain Elley, Bailed from London in
the year 1827 on a trading voyage to thc South
Seas. In due time she arrived at the Bay of
Islands, New Zealand, and there obtained a part
cargo of lumber and fcpars for Honolulu, paying
the natives for the spars in the trade " of thc
times muskeU., powder, Hints, nses, blankets
and rum. Twenty natives were hired from tho
chief of the Bay, to assist in working thc ship,
which made her crew amount to forty men.
Leaving the Bay of Islands, the ship proceeded
to Tongatabu, one of the Friendly Islands. Hecr
five hundred men were procured from the chiefs
to go to Erromango, one of the New Hebrides
group, to cut sandal wood. These 44 contracted
laborers " were all comfortably provided for be
tween decks. The ehip however was well ar
ranged for protection against any difficulty which
might arise with her livine cariro. The three
tops were each provided with twelve muskets and
- i ... i . n r.
ammunition, and the poop and top-gallant fore-
castle commanded thc upper deck by brass eix-
sunders, placed so as to enfilade all arrroacb of
x - I
a hostile character. At Kotuma, three hundred
more native laborers were procured. Arriving
at Port Resolution, on the Island of Erromango,
these natives were all landed for their work of
providing the ship with a cargo of sandal wood.
The inhabitants of Erromango were very wild
and hostile, consequently a fort was built, on
which was mounted six brass guns. Twelve men
from the ship's crew, volunteers, were placed in
charge of the settlement and to superintend the
rrocurinz of the wood. Sumo considerable
r .l i. . I-. r j i ii
Quantity of thc best quality of sandal wood hav-

ing been obtained, the Sophia sailed for Honolulu,
leaving the shore party still at the island engaged
in cutting wood. Arriving at this port in tho
year 1S2S, the was towed into the harbor by
whaleboats, and anchored near what is now the
j foot of Nuuanu street. A schooner was cliart-
! ercd to take the sandal wood to China, and the
New Zealand spars and lumber met with a ready
sale here. Two passengers who came in thc ship
from New Zealand, sold their knowledge of the
i sandal wood island to parties in Honolulu, and it
was through the exertions and influence of the
latter that the disastrous expedition of Boki was
! fittrd out an aecount of w,,ich i8 siTen in JarTt'8'
ijietory of these Islands. Two vessels were dis-
i j . . v
patched, the hamehattuha. supposed to have been
blown up at sea with two hundred and fifty
Hawaiian, and the Jiccict, which returned with
a decimated and starving crew, and without a
pound of sandal wood.
The Sonhia. on leavin-r Honolulu, proceeded to
Tahiti for a supply of salted hogs and yams for
i the wood-cuttx-rs on Erromamro. At Tahiti, fiftv
, . 1...
anj at Kotuma three hundred more, aud all
landed at Erromango, to carry on tbe hungry
hunt for the valuable wooi. But while at anchor
at tbe latter place, a gale came on, and the ship
with four anchors d wn, went on to the reef.

The native news-t.arer Kuohoa offers a e-ugges-

to the effect that a Ilu'e be made providing that i
in all votes in the Assembly upon Public Hills f

while sitting in the came chamber and as one j
! House, eball vote aa 6eparate bodies. Iu this
, manner alone can the voice of the Representa
; tives of the people, aa one of the Estates of the ;
' Realm, be heard and recognized in the Legiela- i
i live Assembly, and as a conceee-ion to their rights j
and interests it must be acknowledged that it i
he jUst and proper, one that neither j
; the riobied nor the Lrown can consider as trencn-

Ahead of the Times ?
It is generally the experience of the man who
projects a new echeme, or w hose good or bad for
tune it may lie to originate an idea, that he
ehould have as many stumbling-blocks placed in
his way as the ignorance, timidity, conservatism,
or malicious feelings of his fellow may be able to
conjure up. In one tfenne this is a wiso provision
of nature, and is in exact accordance with the
plan that unites a little gold with a great deal of
rubbifch in the mine, aud gives so much chaff
with the grains of wheat.
Let a man invent a steam engine, and straight
way ignorance pronounces the thing an impossibil
ity, timidity condemns it as an ungovernable
monster, conservatism deprecates the innovation,
while malice directs them all, and would destroy
..r.it, . . -ir
the project of the busy braiu even at the risk of
i fcelf-immolation. All these the inventor linds
that he must not only meet, but must accept of
as blessings in disguise, for it is only through
discouragement s.nd rejieated failures that any

44 Your article on Electric Telegraphy, advoca

what in advance of the times," was the remark
of one of our readers on Saturday last. This

Wrri t.lr:,nh the world over has become so

universally introduced as to be an every day ne
cessity, and when even Japan, which has so re
cently begun to wheel into line among civilized
nations, has now for a number of years adopted
j its use and is constantly multiplying lines of tele-
graphic wire. Our Hawaiian idea of getting 44 in
advance of the times" is, however doubtless to be
explained by the fact of our peculiar position of j
mid-ocean isolation from all the rest of thc world,
whereby our minds, like our horizon, become cir
cumscribed and limited in range. The climate
too, is favorable to the growth of a condition of
feluggishnees and a disinclination to mental or
bodily activity that, while it might be impolite
it would be quite correct to entitle Honolulu lazi

it is a Government in which there is no positive

force, left to Government, which is like leaving
all to Providence, and is synonymous with caring
nothing about what may come, and accepting
disagreeable results as visitations of nature. The
general feeling is that the Ministry is strong, and
can make itself entirely despotic, at the cheap
price of appeasiu; such a number of the Repre
sentatives as are capable of giving trouble, by a
share of the spoii. In fact, that the only fruit
produced by our national representation is, that
in uddition to those who really govern, there is
an assembly quartered upon the public, and no
abuse in which a portion of tho assembly are in
