The American Minister's Ball. On Thursday
evening last. His Ex. the American Minister Resident
entertained the officers of the U. S. S. Portsmouth
and Russian corvette Aikold, and a large company
of ladies and gentlemen, at a ball and supper at his
residence on Nuuanu Avenue. Dancing commenced
at 8 o'clock, to the enlivening strains of the govern
ment band, and was kept up until long past midnight.
A bountiful and recherche supper was done ample
justice to by the numerous guests, and altogether, it
was pronounced a most pleasant party. Besides the
resident foreign Consuls, we noticed among the
guests, His Ex. the Minister of Finance and Mr?.
terling, Judge Ilartwell of the Supreme Court and
Mrs. Ilartwell, His Ex. the liovernor of Oahu s.nd
Mrs. Dominis, and other Hawaiian official.-?.
Fiendish. On or near Kaalaea Plantation, on the
other side of this island, lives a Chinaman with his
wife and several small children. The ni:m is a small
trader, and bears a good character in the neighbor
hood for quietude and industry. During one night
last week, this family was awakened by the smoke
and heat of their straw house on fire. Endeavoring
to make their escape by the door, it was found to be
fastened with a large rock rolled against it. With
difficulty the man saved his wife and children from
the rapid flames, but lost e verything else. There is
no doubt but this was the work of some fiendish in
cendiary, who intended that the whole family should
be destroyed with the house. The neighbors made
up contributions of clothes, etc., lor the family thus
Almost a Fire. That ia very fortunately as near
as Honolulu has come to a conflagration for some
years past. But we have had many narrow escapes.
Such was that of last Wednesday morning. At about
2 o'clock, some persons who were passing along
King street near Nuuanu, observed a light in Mr.
West's blacksmith shop. On examination it was
found that a Dartition near the forge was on fire and
badly burned, and in a very short time the flames
would have burst through into the upper story,
where a number of carriages, paints, etc., were
stored. A few buckets of water sufficed to put out
the fire without sounding an alarm. AI! credit is
due to the energy and promptness of those who dis
covered and extinguished what might have proved a
serious conflagration, but we beg to remark upon the
great utility of the fire bucket regulation, of which
this s a forcible illustration. The bucketa hinging
up in the premises did rood srrvic.

An Ixcjukst of the Tirtt borne Trial. The Liv
erpool .Mercury of July 5th has several columns i f
the report of this cause cclilre. Here is an incident
that is amusing. Dr. Kenealy is the principal coun
sel for the "claimant," and was cross-questioning a
witness for the crown. " Chief Justice Cockburn
said that a more unwarrantable imputation than that
contained in Dr. Kenealy's question he had never
heard made. (As to how certain money due had been
disposed of.) Dr. Kenealy asked how he could know
what the mention of money due " meant. Chief
Justice (warmly.) Then you ought to know, sir.
The character of a professional man is not to be tra
duced and villified in such a manner. Dr. Kenealy
(submitted that he should use his judgment in defense
of his client. His Lordship said he should then use
his judgment and rebuke counsel who acted in such
a way. Dr. Kenealy was proceeding to offer further
remarks, when His Lordship said I will not conde
scend to wrangle with you, sir. Dr. K. said I will
not wrangle with your Lorpship, but your Lordship
certainly commenced it. I will do my duty to my
client, and will not be put down by your Lordship,
or by any other power. His Lordship Go on sir
with your cross-examination."
Hilo, August 18th, 1873.
To the KJifor if the J'acijlc Commercial Advertiser
Sir. When perusing the many articles which,
during the past few months, have appeared in your
paper on the subject of reciprocity some of them
deserving of great credit for the very able manner in
which the subject has been handled, whatever a
parcel of would-be-thought friends may aver to the
contrary I have frequently been reminded of that
pregnant exclamation of Sancho l'anza, blessed
be the man who invented sheep;" not that I wish it
to be understood, by this quotation, as by any means
implying that our Ministers have been altogether
slumbering since they have been in office; but, I do
mean to infer that the initiatory steps, which they
have just taken, might as well as not have been
taken months ago. Perhaps, however, in the Cab
net there were those whose convictions, as to the
policy or the good that might accrue from reciprocity,
were not clear; and whose " eyes had to be couohed
for cataract " in order that they become recipients
of the new and culminating light, I trust it is from
conviction that their views have been changed,
instead of from conversionas conversion without
conviction is neither more nor less than hypocrisy.
For months past, aud uninfluenced by other than
a most sincere belief in the abstract justice of the
measure. I have advocated this Treaty of Reciprocity
on the proposed terms the ceding of Pearl R.iver.
My ideas, as well as being strengthened by the views
taken by our planters and others, whose policy has
always been productive of good to the country,
were based upon higher considerations. Therefore
as I did not adopt those views loosely, I shall not
abandon them lightly. )n the contrary, after giv
ing my fullest consideration to the argument of those
who were formerly, like myself, opponents, but now
advisers of the change, I can see no substantial
reason for departing from my deliberate views and
assenting to a measure which justice, and in truth
the future welfare of these islands, have alike
induced our Ministers to adopt. And I would here
wish to add that it rejoiceth not only the writer, Lut
numbers amongst the reflecting portion of this com.
munity to find that after napping so long, the Cab
inet Las not proven faint-hearted or capable of
yielding their actions and opinions to the brutum
fulmen of the JVuhou and others of the " outs."
Far be it from me, however, to assert that amongst
those who have held to opposite opinions, there Le
not some who have done so from the best and purest
motives, and from the honest convictions of their
consciences. The public career of some and the
private virtues of others, would belie me if I dared
assert the contrary; but, I do dare to assert that it ia
not from those pure and disinterested motives the
above mentioned clique have acted and are still con
tinuing to influence the ignorant masses. I can
only say of these would-be philanthropists that my
candid opinion is their hatred to the present Cabinet
is only equalled by their ignorance and consummate
Ob, Mr. Editor, the "ways that are dark, and
tricks that are vain !" In treating of this matter of
reciprocity, you are not dealing with a fractional or
insignificant interest, but with one which, numeric-
ally speaking, is the most important of any in this
kingdom. If the prosperity of this country is once
allowed to recede as recede I am fully convinced it
must if some such measures as the Ministry now
contemplate be not carried into effect the conse
quences may be more ruinous than any of us can
yet foresee. This country has now arrived at that
epoch where it must either progress or fall back it
cannot by any possibility stand still. It will pro
gress fast enough if you but give it scope; if you
check it, it will inevitably decline. So, God sped
About on a par with those old fogies who so sagely
declare that it is only the planters and a limited
number of others amongst us who would receive any
benefit from reciprocity with the United States, I
must, before closing, relate an incident that came
under my own personal observation the other day.
Whilst walking along our Hilo beach, 1 came in con
tact with a group of foreigners and natives, some of
whom were gesticulating most violently, and loudly
discussing the merits pros and cons of the pro
posed treaty. Now, methinks, as I was well ac
quainted with the crowd is an opportunity to vent
my long pent up feelings on the subject, so with a
salutation I begged they would allow me to do so.
I had however, by courtesy, first to allow the gentle
man, who was then speaking and who was an
enemy to the treaty to get through with what he
had to say. The reason he could not make up his
mind to reciprocity was, that it could not possibly
benefit the islands, for, said he, " when the duties are
taken off the sugars, the consumers and refineries in
San Francisco will expect to purchase them " the
sugars, not the duties "at a proportionate rate to
the amount of duties remitted;" and at this sapient
idea, which seemed at that moment to have forced
itself into his brains he with some others fairly
chuckled with delight. Now, mon dieu ! Mr.
Editor, after such a clincher as that, what could I do
but touch my hat and leave as quickly and with as
good grace as possible? I bad never viewed the
matter through those specs before. I think that
chap stands a fair chance of being sent to the next
Legislature. Yours, X.
San Domingo and Cuba.
We find the following in the Alia of the 2d inst.:
New Yof.k. August 1. Information discloses the
fact that for sorse days past agents of the insurgent
leaders in San Domingo have been in the city pur
chasing arms, and the recent shipment of.a thou
sand stand has been ma le to a point within the con
trol of the revolutionists. The opposition to Uaez
is said to be daily growing stronger through the
objection of the Dominicans to the Samana Day
Company, which, it is alleged, has failed to fulfill
any of the promises for the improvement of the ter
ritory conceded ; and it is only occupied in strip
ping the country of its valuable products and ex
porting them, without making any return in the
form of new buildings, local improvements or other
works designed to aid and advance the material
progress of the country. In the battle of the 18th
of June, at Caroco, according to private advices,
P.aez's troops left 100 men upon the field, and since
the battle desertions from the army are frequent.
Key West, August 1. Mail advices from Ha
vana, to July 19th. contain the following : -'The
Government has obtained possession of an import
ant document, revealing the clandestine labors of
thn Cirlit- in this Province."

For the tenth time since his huge figure loomed
into publicity. th "claimant's" funds have given
out. lie made application some lime iuc- for
assistance from the government. lU-in;r. on trial
befote the Court of Queen's lVem h for perjury and
forgery, his ease, it was represented, warranted
such a supply for his defense. The Home Secre
tary has. however, refused the application, on the
ground that w hile the State, when it undertakes a
proscution, i bound to find the funds necessary
for that object, it has never proceeded on the prin
ciple of also supplying funds (or conduct of a
defense. Had the petitioner been cominiticd lor
trial by magistrates in the u-ual way. instead of by
the Superior Court. ii omi. lie would have been
it is said, in this respect in no better position. The
magistrates might, indeed, in the exercise f their
discretion, have bound over such witnesses as they
thought material, and the judge ol the court ul
which the trial took place might have ordered t he
costs of such witnesses to be paid. Hut the Supe
rior Court has not the power lo order payment of
any such costs when witnesses have not been pre
viously so bound over by magistrates. Still, when
the trial is over, the Home Secretary will be pre
pared, he intimates, to consider, iu conjunction
with the Lords Commissioners of the treasury
"whether and to what extent, witnesses for the
defense, under the special circumstances of the
petitioner's case may be treated on the same, foot
ing as those who are bound over by the magistrates
to give evidence lor the defense." I'nder these
circumstances, the undaunted "claimant" has ap
pealed, as before to the I'rittsh nation. He lion
published his appeal in fhese words: "'Il is now
quite plain that 1 must do one of two things
either appeal again to my friends, the Jlriiish pub
lic, or cave in under the enormous pressure brought
to bear against me bv tne govern men t and my
relatives. Inasmuch as I have fought -smw for over
six years to try and regain inv rights for my clnl
dren, I feel assured that ray f riends will not now
desert iue. Therefore 1 make bold to ask them
again to render me what assistance thwy can to
defend myself against the government and the
purse or tho nation.'
A failure to convict in the present trial and
while conviction is possible, it is extremely tlifli-
cult, in tne present aspect of the case, to see on
w hat ground such a conclusion can be lounded
will undoubtedly bo followed by a fresh effort on
the part of the ''claimant' to possess himself of
what fie calls his family estates. In such an effort.
too, he may, not improbably be more strongly
supported than before since many will inevitably
regard Ins acquittal in the light t tin indorsement
If the government, they will argue, with its now
erful machinery and unlimited resources, cannot
prove the " claimant " to be some one other than
lr lioger Doughty lichborne and it is on this, ol
necessity, that the whole action of perjury and
forgery rests the " claimant ' must be that baronet
and none other. The inference is, of course, de
fective, but not for that reapon likely to be lef.s
popular. One of the weapons of the Tichborne
family in the former trial consisted in the now
realized government prosecution. If lhat prose
cution ends in smoke, the family will go into the
next contest considerably enfeebled. Mipposing,
therefore, that the " claimant escapes conviction,
it is likely that the ensuing sliuggb for the dis
puted properly will be far more animated and
interesting than the last one : and it is by no im am

At the next session of the Canadian Parliament
it is understood that an effort will be made to hav
a law passed to prohibit the carrying of pistols by
civilians, unless under circumstances that shall be
deemed sufficient to warrant u local magistrate in
granting a permit. The accidental shooting of a
youn? man on board a steam boat, a short time
since, has been the means of bringing this subject
into prominent notice. At present, the smallest
boy in the Dominion may purchase a pistol, and
carry it in his breeches pocket without having to
fear in case his possession of it may become known
to the police. The gentlemen who proposes to in
troduce the bill referred to. should not neglect to
insert a clause to regulate the sale of fire arras.
When the gun smiths, as well here as ia Canada,
are prevented, under a severe penalty, from selling
pistols to persons without a special permit from a
police inspector or magistrate, then, and not till
then, shall there be an end to the slaughter by "ac

Two Causes of Crime. An exchange, in com
menting on the Sharkey trial, in New York, attrib
utes most of the crimes there to two causes, which
usually go together whisky drinking and pistol
shooting. Two presumptions, it is argued, are ob
vious to this. The man who drinks to intoxication
voluntarily places himself in a condition which incites
easily and recklessly to crime. The carrying of a
pistol is of itself purposely and deliberately to be
prepared for murder, and the throwing of the burden
of proof upon the prosecution that a criminal com
mitted murder intentionally and with malice, is
wrong. The Sharkey case was a3 follows : Sharkey
was in a common drinking shop one evening where
he met Dunn. Sharkey was stupidly drunk, and
was armed with a pistol. A quarrel occurred. Shar
key whipped a pistol out, and in a minute Dunn was
a dead man. The moral of it is this :
Sharkey voluntarily provided himself with the
means of committing murder, should an opportunity
occur, and moreover deliberately put himself into a
condition of mind and body wherein the death of a
fellow-being assumed about the same importance m
his eye as the death of a fly If he happens to escape
punishment under such circumstances, then society
is at the mercy of a man who choosps to preface
murder with a debauch.

A Misui niEii youth in Alexandria, Va., In imita
tion f Sergeant Hates, proposes to proceed to Itos
ton for the purpose of starting from Hunker Hill
on a tour through the Northern Stales, carrying
with him the rebel flag unfurled. We ure Inclined
to regard this as a foolish as well ns hazardous un
dertaking. Not that the Hug bearer is In danger of
personal violence from northern Union soldi. -is.
but it is calculated to arouse memories of such
places us Andersonville. that might as well be
smothered. Moreover, this Alexandria adventurer
should remember thai his esse and that of Sergeant
Hates are hlighlly different. While he is carrying
a flag that constitutes no national emblem, nnd
travels through a region that claims lo be the con
queror. Pates carried the victorious American
standard, Ihe emblem of a powerful nation, through
a defeated section of the country and among a sub
dued, if not a subjugated, people, and heneo not
likely to be insulted. However, fho whole affair is
a humbug of the first water, and when the rebel
flag-bearer gets within the shadow of the shaft on
Hunker's Hill he will probably think better of his
silly venture aud abandon it altogether.
A new press law is proposed in Germany, which
is described as u freedom of the press tempered
with the gallows. It imposes two years imprison
ment on editors for publishing anything opposed
to the principles of political order," which sim
ply means to the powers lhat be and the btatu quo.
The press has a hard time of it on the continent,
and the military despotism to which tho people
have allowed themselves to be subjected, forms a
power airainst which it seems almost useless lo
contend. There is little il any more liberty in
Germany now than tin-re was "in the days ol Ihe
(treat Frederick. The journals thought the old
press law severe enough, but now they think II o
angelic mildness as compared with the new one.
While the German fovernuieiit is thus coercing
the press, Ihe new administration iu France is
buying it. A circular baa been issued (o the de
partment pr"fects instructing them to ascertain
what papers can be bought up. When the matter
was brought up in the Assembly, the ministry de
fended I heir course. The Republic will not last

party of Knglihh capitalists propose lo convert the
l.mperor of China to their railroad st Denies by
putting a road of ten miles into perfect operation
somewhere within the Flowery Kingdom. They
think thai a trip at the rate of sixty miles an hour
would eiiectualiy draw bis objections, and a stately
excursion in a palace car would completely trans
port tais elder lirotner or the -un. The thing is
plausible, und the grounds of il are obvious. The
English trade with China- exceeds that of alltothrr
foreign nations put together. Indeed, if the state
ment, recently made by the Hrilish Sccretaty of Le
gation at rekin is correct, eight-ninths of Ihe for
eign trade of China in 1871 was with Great Hrituiu
and her colonies. A network of railways through
China would shortly quadruple the exports and im
ports or the hmpire, and give her people a new im
pulse towards civilization. Taken in connection
with the magnificent railway projects of Haron

sought, and more. A new province has been an
nexed to Fgypt, and a connecting chain of posts
has been formed reaching from Nubia to Nyanza.
Hut the most astonishing fact in the records of the
expedition is tho discovery that Lakes Tanganyika
and Albert Nyanza are one aud toe sama sheet ol
water. It is a magnificent inland sea, seven hun
dred miles in length the largest in the world. Our
lakes bide their diminished heads belore this
mighty sheet of water, and henceforth must be con

African sea is said to be navigable from Murehi-
son's falls to Ujiji. affording every means of com
munication witn ur. Livingstone, itus is most im
portant news, and ought to be verified at once.
After Professor Wise has crossed the Atlantic, we
may send hirn by balloon to Ujiji, to trace the
sources of the Nile, and map out the water-shed of
interior Africa. The verification of the African
discoveries of the last ten years would be easy
work for an air-ship, and would see all geographi
cal questions speedily at rest.
The New Departure. Tho whistle of the loco
motive along the beads of our wharves is the sig
nal of the new departure which New Bedford now
takes. The New IJedford which the present gener
ation has kaown, the New Bedford of oil and bone,
the enterprise of whose merchants and seamen
from the earliest period of our history has made
her world-famous, will soon be in earnest a " New
I5edford of the Past' and will live hereafter only
in the pages of her local historian who has treas
ured up her records and traditions for future gen
erations. " New times demand new measures and
new men," and after long watting and many de
ferred hopes they have come at last. New Ideas,
new blood, have been infu;ed into our hearts, and
new occupations, new enterprises and new pros
perity will follow the undertaking whose comple
tion we now rejoic in. Already the Increased ac
tivity in building and the rise in tho value of real
estate are an earnest of what is In store forns. We
only want the speedy construction of the road to
Fall Kiver to complete our means ot communlcr.
tion with the outer world, t.nd to enable ns to enjoy
to the full the advantages of our position. After
that, our future growth must reiit in the continued
activity and enterprise of our business men, and
we bope that the rising generation will have the
spirit to avail themselves of the opportunities
opened to them, and not feel obliged to forsake
their native place in Ihe pursuit of fortune. Atc.
