Preparations are being made on a grand scale
for a party of fifty American Master Masons, under
tbe auspices of the Royal Solomon Mother Lodge
in tbe city of Jerusalem, to leave New York on
September 12, 1874, and visit the land of the east,
where the mystic rites are supposed to have bad
their origin. The gentlemen will be absent about
five months, and arrangements are being perfected!
by which the most extraordinary advantages will'
be secured by them, at a comparatively moderate
cost. During the expedition the party, will visit
the Masonic lodges in Egypt, Palestine, Syria,
Asia Minor, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Switzerland and
Great Britain. Robert Morris, Esq., LL. P., a gen
tleman well read in eastern travel, will act as
chaperon to the party.
The New York correspondent of the Ledger says
that In that city parties are beginning to divide on
tbe Beecher business, just as they did on tbe On
derdonk case many years ago. The whole matter,
in all probability, will ultimately find its way into
the courts. The report now is, that, under Gen.
Butler's advice, Mr. Tilton is to institute an action
for damages against Mr. Beechpr, claiming that
through his "wicked instrumentality" bis borne
has been broken np and his domestic peace de
stroyed. A suit for divorce at the same time will
be commenced. Mr. Tilton bimseif has made a
statement io the reporters substantially amounting
Brit-l Ass.vlt and Battery. Yesterday in the
Police Court, one Thomas Clark, (who has on
several previous occasions been concerned in
breaches of Ue peace and got off scatheless) was
charged with an aggravated assaujt and battery or
one Thomas Carey. It appears that Clark has
been employed in attending bar In an "orange
cider '' or beer shop, kept by one Rathburn, on the
corner of Smith's lane and Beretania street, in the
delectable neighborhood of the bouse where the
stabbing affray took place last month. Carey went
into this shop on Wednesday evening, and after
drinking some of the compounds sold there, was
very drunk, and in that condition was knocked
down and repeatedly kicked in tbe face by Clark
with bis heavy boots, and then turned into the
street. There was no proof of any provocation
whatever. The man was picked up in a bleeding
and dazed condition and taken to the Station-house,
where hi9 wounds were dressed tbe marks of some
of which from Clark's boots, he will carry to his
grave. The Attorney General, who appeared on
tbe part of the prosecution, characterized tbe affair
as one of the most brutal and cowardly that ever
was brought before the Court. His Honor, in sum
ming np. referred to the dangerous character that
bouses of this class were gaining, and the necessity
that an example should be made. Clark was sen
tenced to three months imprisonment at bard
labor, with tbe costs of Court.

Warm Bath Recent visitors to Kilauea report
having explored a hitherto rarely visited cave, not
far from tbe road to tbe crater, which is abundantly
supplied with warm water, heated by nature's fires.
The cave extends several hundred feet under
ground, formiag a number of spacious chambers,
and the water in some parts is of great depth
said to be without bottom. It is impregnated with
some mineral probably sulphur. Now if we only
had these warm springs within a few miles of IIo

advertise in a short while I A hotel wonld be

The average value of each immigrant arriving
in the United States has been frequently estimated
by writers 'on political economy, bnt no two of
them agree on this question. Tbi value varies
from $750, according to tbe lowest estimate, to
about $1,500 iu the highest ; but in either case it is
evident that in a more restricted materia sense it
is cheaper to import our population than to pro
duce it ourselves. Assuming each child of fifteen
to have cost $1,000, and that the money thus ex
pended would have been otherwise saved, we find
that tbe man who has raised a family of five chil
dren and remained poor might have accumulated a
sum sufficient for the wants of old age had he not
been subjected to this expense.
However the controversy may be ultimately deci
ded, one of the results of the unhappy scandal that
has agitated tbe public mind in the United States for
some time past will be the discrediting of what is
known as the liberal school in theology. People will
feel that there is a new social theory behind the " ad
vanced " doctrine that is preached to them, and tbey
will have learned to distrust. Right or wrong, they
will couple latitudinarianism in creed with laxity in
morals, and will hold the one responsible for the
other. The judgment that is thus popularly passed
may be combatted as prejudice, but it will remain.
The IIiio Mirpers. Tbe schooner Pauahi,
which arrived from Hilo on Saturday last, brought
three of tbe parties implicated in the murder of
the old man and woman in July last Their names
are Kihi, Kaaukai, and Kaapuni. The two first are
mere boys, neither of them over seventeen years
old. They have made voluntary confessions, in
which tbey state that Kaapuni did tbe killing with
a hatchet, having coaxed them to be present, but
that all tbey did was to hold tbe old man while
Kaapuni knocked him on tbe head, he having first
dispatched the old woman. After the murders bad
been accomplished, tbey watched, one on each eide
of the house, while Kaapuni went in and broke
open a trunk and brought out a long bag of money.
They all three then went away and Kaapuni car
ried the money to his own house. This ia however
only one of a number of stories that bare been
told as to tbe affair, and there are some ten or
more persons, more or less implicated, in jail at
Hilo. Up to last Monday, no trace of the money
(which was the Inciting cause of the murders) had
A Singular Forgery. The adage that " a little
learning is a dangerous thing," is occasionally and
sadly exemplified among the Ilawaiians. Charles
Kabalehili, a pretty well educated young Hawaiian,
was charged in the Police Court last week with ut
tering a forged bank check. It appeared that Kaba
lehili, the father of Charles, presented to Mr. J. II.
Paty at tbe banking house of Bishop & Co., a check,
purporting to be drawn by Robert Stirling, for
$469.12, in favor of Chulan & Co. Mr. Paty testi
fied that the signature of Robert Stirling was so well
done that if on a certificate of deposit he should not
have doubted it, but as Mr. S. bad co account at the
bank, and moreover had left the country some
months ago, he judged it to be a forgery. One of
the firm of Chulan & Co. testified that they had no
account with Mr. Stirling. Kahalehili the elder,
who at first concealed tbe truth, eventually corrected
his evidence by testifying that his son gave him the
check to get cashed at the bank. Charles was com
mitted for trial at the next term of the Supreme
Court, and a nolle pros, was entered in the case of
From the Friend for September.
The United States the Gainer by Reci-

jby late papers we learn that the United States is
iapout to renew its reciprocity with Canada. One of
the strongest arguments for the renewal of this treaty,
is the fact that ever since its abrogation the United
States has been the loser. iThe leading men of the
country are convinced thai while Canada will be ben
efited, the United States will be the greater gainer.
Statistics show that during the last few years, the
high duties and practical non-intercourse have been
detrimental to the commercial interests of the United
Iff Will not the same course of reasoning apply to the
Hawaiian Islands ? We think it will. Of course we
'know the Hawaiian Islands wonld be essentially ben
efited by a reciprocity treaty, but would not a greater
benefit accrue to the United States? We think it
would. Suppose such a treaty should be negotiated
and the agricultural interests of the islands were
quickened, then here would be opened a ten-fold
greater market for the lumber, salmon, and every de
scription of goods manufactured in the United States,
bat especially west of the Rocky Mountains. Should
this take place, the trade with Oregon and California
would be marvelously augmented. Our products
sugar and rice would not interfere with tbe pro
ducts raised on the western coast of the United States.
Our islands are the natural market for their products,
and so the western coast of tbe United States is the
natural market for our products. Very soon, by
quickened trade, tbe United States would control the
trade cf these islands, and another step would Le
taken towards the control of the Pacific. In view of
such results, the " half a million " of duties imposed
upon the Hawaiian sugars and collected in the San
Francisco Custom House, is a trifle scarcely worth
mentioning. American statesmen are now discover
ing that they have been " penny wise and pound
foolish" in regard to Canada, but they are equally .
so with reference to the Hawaiian Islands. " Give
and it shall be given unto you," is the enunciation of
a principle, true not only in the philosophy of Chris
tianity but of political economy and commerce among
nations. The point to which we now call attention,
we think, is worthy of those fond of statistics. Fill
Uncle Sam's pocket, and he will " reciprocate."
Hebe is somethtxo of Interest to our orange
growers, and possibly to coffee planters as well
Says a late number of the San Francisco BuUetin :
The orange culturist has no enemy to contend
with which he has such good reason to dread
none so formidable in uumbers, so tenacious of
vitality, and so fatally destructive to his trees as
tbe scale-bug, or coccus. It is the only creature of
any kind depredating on the orange-orchard whose
operation the culturist fca3 been unable to control.
Washing the plants with strong soap-suds is re
garded by some as a good remedy, and Professor
Maynard, of the Massachusetts Agricultural Col
lege, recommends washing the affected plant with
ninety-five per cent, of alcohol, applying it with a
small bristle-brush. But neither of these wasbes
gives more than temporary relitf, and the scourge
soon assumes its accustomed threatening propor
tions. The orange-orchards of Florida have on sundry
occasions been threatened with total destruction
by tbe scale-bug. It seems to have been no unu
sual thing there for trees to be so infested with this
parasite as to necessitate cutting off all of the
branches close to the trunk. In the Hawaiian Isl-

It would appear from a card recently published
in the Ixis Angelas Herald, emanating Irom the
leading orange culturists in the San (latniel valley
J. IV Barth Sborb and K. J. C. Kewen that a
perfect method for the tetsl extermination of th
scale bug had at last been discovered. Mr. Shorb
claims tbe discovery, but samehow or other it has
got into the bands of tbe agent of a patent lire-
extingnifher with which tbe experiment wer con
ducted, and now tbe secret ia not to be revealed
excepting to purchasers of the machine, and then
only under pledgtt of profound secrecy on their
part. The element employed in this particular
machine is carbonic acid gas. and Mr. J-borb inti
mates in bis card that tbe iogredieni introduced
mi the machine for the destruction of scale -bugs
are only such as will reduce the strength of tt
charge. He claims that an application of Ibis
mixture relieved his trees of the pest at once, and
be say there were as many as eight hundred of
them threatened with prematare death. Colonel
Kewen pronounces it equally efficacious In his
orchard. If this remedy possesses all th virtues
which it is represented to have, it would seem a
duty the discoverer owes to bis generation, inas
much as he lays no possessory claim to it himself,
to give it tbo widest publicity, mor especially so
as it seems tbe particular machine with which the
solution has been applied is not absolutely nec
essary to accomplish the desired end. The orange
interest in this State is assuming considerable
magnitude, and tbe man who will furnish ctitturils

Constructing Civil Government
The following passage in the Rev. Mr. Sturges
letter from Micronesia, published in the .lissiontiry
Htrahl for August, illustrates the gradual and neo
1 esaary outgrowth of civil institutions from tbe influ
ence of the Gospel and the Christian Missionary :
.-"Want of authority and of ownerthip greatly
hinders our work in reconstructing here. Everybody
oirn and everything is done, in general, but noth
ing in particular. Wives, children, lands, property,
belong to everybody and to Dobody. In this state of
things, there is and can be but little desire to improve
or acquire. Our church organizations Llp, but
outside of these there are evils we cannot reach,
without civil government At this our people are
making some efforts. It will be recollected that ou
the death of our good chief Kjckaia, tbe Christian
party elected ono of their district chiefs to preside
over the whole. This election was sanctioned by the
king of the tribe, who has left our party to manage
its own affairs. Thus we have more than half the
population and territory of the tribe free to work
and legislate for themselves. Our chief, rather
noted for inefficiency, even among our imbecile
rulers, is so kind hearted that punishment is his
'strange work.' Everybody was complaining that
he would punish no one, though many were needing
it. I acted, in one or two instances, the part of
high sheriff,' to have individuals brought to justice.
" Some time ago, one of our deacons, a district
chief, complained to the high chief that be did not
attend to an aggravated case of adultery just then
troubling us. The bead chief replied by directing
the deacon to go and bring up the culprits, lie
refused, on the ground that such work did not belong
to his office. 1 heard of it, and saw the difficulty,
and advised our people to elect ' sheriffs, one for
each large district. This they did, and had as fine a
set of men as the island affords, only a part of them
church-members. These immediately came to me for
work. I sent them to their bead chief ; and be came
back with them to me, asking what they were to do.
I saw the fix I bad put myself in, by proposing exe
cutioners of laws without laws to execute, or even
1 iw-makcrs. So I proposed that they elect from each
district men who should assist their chief io makiug
laws. This pleased them, and they elected their best
men, seven in number, who meet with a aloes of high
chiefs, a kind of nobles. and this constitutes their
legislature. Tbey have passed a few laws; among
others, one giving a homestead to every man, on
condition that he build a bouse on it, and he can
own but one. This law is the most radieal of any
they need, ns it strikes at the root of the great evil
here, a kind of socialism, quite destructive to all
our efforts to fix them as to place cr property. Of
course land-holders feel this change, as their greed
has been to get all the lands; but so far they have
yielded to the law, giving up their places when
they held more than one. If these begionings at
legislation result in something to advance civil rule
we shall be glad; f they result in nothing, we may
try it again. A beginning mu$t be made sometime,"
We find in the columns of the La Salle Gat tilt the
subjoined extracts from a speech delivered before the
Anti-Monopoly Association of Marshall County on
the 27tb ult., Illinois, on tbe subject of interest :
With the census reports as his data, the speaker
showed that the value of all property, real and per
sonal, in the nation, was at the present time, in round
numbers, twenty-four billion dollars, and that with
agriculture as the basis, the net annual increase was
not over 6 per cent. lie estimated that one-half or
twelve billion dollars of the national wealth was
owned by capitalists who rented their property or
loaned their money to the producing classes, and that
the rate of interest averaged as much as 10 per rent,
per annum. Twelve billion dollars at 10 per cent,
would be one thousand two hundred million dollars.
bile twenty-four billion dollars at three per cent.
would amount to but seven hundred and twenty
million dollars, leaving tbe producing element of the
nation in the sum of five hundred million dollars at
the end of the year.
The speaker tben proceeded to show, by what to
us seems to be clear and conclusive argument, that
tbe national banking system, or existing money
oligarchy, was tbe soul and center of all monopoly;
that protective tarms, snip subsidies, railroad and
other like monopolies, were but part of the means
used by this wrongly-con struoted money power to
rob the producing and distributing classes, and that
while it was continued in force, or while the present
extortionate rates of interest on money or loanable
capital are maintained, we can have no general
permanent prosperity, even should we abolish pro
tective tanlls, stop granting ship ana other subsidies,
and restrain within proper bounds railroad and all
To eive a clear idea of the power of money to ac
cumulate by interest, and of tbe effect of the differ
ent rates in the distribution of property between
capital and labor, be said : The first permanent
Anglo-Saxon settlement on tbis Continent was made
at Jamestown in lb07, or z07 years a 20. fow. if
at that time, Capt. Newport, who headed that colony,
had purchased of the mother country ail the territory
embraced within the present limits of the United
States for the sum of one dollar, and giving the
obligation of bimseif and successor g and assigns,
payable -07 years alter date, with interest com
pounded annually which is the natural law govern
ing increase by per centage it would fall due tbis
year, and, doubtless, would be considered to have
been a good arraogement tor bis successors by tho.o
who are clamoring for "hard money." Rut this
wouVl depend cntirsly upon the rate of Interest
named in the bond. At 10 per cent, tbe amount
would now be one hundred and sixteen billion dollars,
or over four touts the value of all the property, real
and person!, in the nation, while at S per cent, the
amount would be but two thousand six hundred and
eighty dollars, or the value of an ordinary eighty-acre
But to bring the subject nearer home, let us take
our own State, which, for commercial advantages,
salubrity of climate, agricultural and mineral wealth,
is unsurpassed by any tract of contiguous territory
of equal extent on this Continent, and which has
been developed more rapiaiy than any other portion
of our country. The State was admitted into ths
Union in 1818, or bo years ago. If tbe settlers then
residing in the territory had purchased of the
National Government all the lands within the limits
of the State at S1.25 per acre, and given the obliga
tions of themselves and their successors payable 66
years after date, with interest compounded annually,

the advocates of "hard money" are ready to say
that it would have been a good arrangement for
those now residing in the State, even with the rata
of interest at 10 per cent., for they claim that money
is cheap at that rate. But let us look at the result.
The State contains 85.200,000 acres, which at $1.26
per acre would amount to 44,000,000, which, with
interest at 10 per cent, compounded annually for 60
years, would amount to nine billions two hundred and
twenty-four millions dollars, or two hundred and sixty
two dollars per acre for all tbe lands In the State,
being four times the actual value of all tba property,
real and personal in the State. While with tbe rata
of interest at 8 per cent, the amrVrit would "tw let

A Polynesian Scheme. 'J
' . - - -
Some of our older rwatdeat will remember a favor
ite idea of tb lata Mr. Wyllie a sealoas frSsnd cf
this nation, and Minister of Foreign lUlaiioas under
three Karuehamehas that the Hawaiian Ktnjlutn,
as it tti tbe first ia Polynesian eiviliiatit-a, should
gradually associate wilh itself all the island nation
alities of the Pacific, forming a sort t f rvitnesiaa
Empire, or Confederation, with the seat of ftatral
government at Honolulu. Tba Government of New
Zealand appear now to be entertaining seme such
idea as this, as appears from the fullowiog " Mi ma
terial Memorandum " which we find in Ibe Southern
Cross of Auckland, Aug. 4.
THE POLYM3MAX IM.AM.
Referring to a Memorandum ('J3, 1873) on tba
aubjeets of tba Nig.tor lshtada, Miawuera dessrw to
further call his Eaorllency's attention to ths vary
grave considerations connected with tha Polynesian
Islands. It need scarcely I urged as au eicusa for
Ministers touching upon the tut ject, thai New Zea
land, through its geographical position and its trade,
is very much concerned la all that concerns the
islands of the South I'acifio.
Ministers moved his KioclKnoy, a ft-w days siase,
to despatch a telegram to tbe Secretary of State on
the subject of tbe Navigator group of islands, urging
immediate action. Important as it la that tbe ease
of tbe Navigator group should receive ioiroedtMe
attention, it no less urgently requires recognition
that more or leas Immediate motion should be taken
in respect to a very large number, of ,ihf l'aoifio
Islands, h ie staled, nti apparently eeinprrftit
authority, that tbe Imperial Uovcrnu.eut at length
entertaiu the idea of annexing tbe Fiji group ; but
the Fiji group comprises island similar to which
there are numbers yet uncounted in the I'acifio, and it
is desirable, in regard to them, not lo allow the
same delay that hat made the treatment af the. Fiji
group so difficult. It is ruspeotfully aubatitted that
a policy or linn of conduct should be decided on, not
alone in connection with one or two clusters of
islands, bat applicable to all Polynesia. t i ' j
In the absence of all machinery for governing or
controlling, or punishing for crime tbe white raee,
lawless communities will grow up in these Islands.
Then, whea the necessity for control boeotuea iiwi.
pcrative, it will be found, as in ths case of Fiji, that
the delay has tuado it difficult to do that which at an
earlier aUga, laighl with ease kava Urn efleeted.
Again, if ureat liriuin means U extend hc domin
ion in Polynesia, it will be better for abundantly
evident reasous for bcr to do so comprehensively,
than to allow herself to be forced into It, the choicest
islands being, ia the meanwhile, appropriated by
Foreign Powers. Unless the agree with Foreign
Powers say, with Germany and the United States,
and perhaps Franco and Holland to jointly ' protect
all Polynesia (and in that case it is to ba presumed
Australasia would have to be included), she would
find it easier to deal with the whole of the unappro
priated islands herself, rather than to submit to
taking the leavings of other powers, and to run the
risk of having to deal wilh complicated international
questions. It is re?jectfully urged that if (be tradi
tions of tbe nation mty be employed at an argument,
it could be shown Unit they point to the glad prose
cution by Great Britain of the work of reducing to
civilization the fertile islands of the I'acifio ; and,
moreover, it could be shown that, with tho moderate
appliances which science has placed at the command
of civilization,' and with the enormous wealth and
iutuieuse naval power Ureat Britain is possessed of,
the work Is easy now, which in the past, with like
reasons, would have bteu heroically curried out,
whatever the sacrifice it entailed.
But if Great Britain decide upon colonizing or
civilizing Polynesia, there it much to be said in favor
of her leaving to tbe already established colouies a
considerable amount of tbe work and of the ooutrol.
In tbe House of Commons Mr. Gladstone referred lo
the "experience of New Zealand" ns somewhat dis
couraging the annexation of Fiji. Though this expo,
rience was not spoken of in disparaging term, the
surroundings Leftilop! to such -an iniorpretation.
Ministers Ventura to urge that Great Cut am, what
ever the pecuniary cost it hat entailed, may with jus
tice be proud of having reproduced herself in the
"Great liritain of the South," as New Zealand has
been aptly called. Surely, a pecuniary sacrifice la
not to be set against the fact that the Island of New
Zealand are open to the enterprise of all Ilriti.h sub
jects, and that they are already settled and colonized
by British subjects, who, whilst they preserve tba
best characteristics of their race, are free at a com
munity from wide-spread pauperism, and find in the
home of their adoption the means of educating their
children and of ollering still further relief la their
burdened contttrymaain tlMthlokiy-populatMl'nited
Kingdom. Hut there is a lesson which New Zealand
teaches, and that it, tbat local efforts to maintain
peaceful relations with an uncivilized race are far
more successful than those directed by a distant
Kwer. It may be wotth consideration whether, if
ilynesia is not to be abandoned to foreign nations,
it would not be wctl to entrust to Ntw Zeal a 6 1, fetch
possesses so much ezperieoce ia dealing witk the ip.
erooient of a iblxed raoe, the Ut-k o aldlag la ex
tending the British sway to the islands of the Tacifio.
Of the terms under which this should be done,
whether by means of legal machinery applicable only
to the white inbsUitaiiU) by Rcsidont Governors or
Magistrates, who would continue to recognize tba
right of tbe dark race to self-government; or by
uniting the islands into provinces, controlled under
similar conditions, it is not now necessary to decide.
Indeed, Ministers could not asoept tLe re pea nihility
of submitting di-tas, without a ivfc-ronce t h As
sembly. But when Ministers remember the enter
prise of tbe colonists their desire to extend their
commerce to all parts of tbo I'acifio the maritim
advantages the colony enjoys, not only in its extftr.
sive seaboard and hardy population, bait Im Its facili
ties for ship-building they cannot but come to tba
conclusion that tbe Parliament of New Zealand would
cordially entertain proposals which had for their ob
ject to give to tbe Colony the opportunity of assisting
Great Britain in the great national work of extend
ing tbe British dominion throughout the unappropri
ated islands of tbe South Pacific.

The Agreement of Science and Religion.
This In tb title of a small, but elaborate and
able volume by the Rev. Jo. IL Wytbe, M. D., of
tbis city. We commend it with great pleasure and
confidence to our readers as an important contrib
ution to tbe controversy. now so prominent and
affecting th vital interest of true religion.
Seldom are such high qualifications for a work
like tbis found in one man, as those combined in
Dr. Wytbsv .lie was a thoroughly educated physi
cian, and practiced medicine fifteen years bHore
entering tbo mi nix try of tbe Methodist church. He
has ever been an en tbuslanUc votary cf.scl-nc,
and has a deep practical acquaintance with the
microscope and iu wonders, possessed by few men
in our country. He has performed, with eminent
success, thirteen of the most delicate, dangerous,
and difficult operations known to i-urgery. He
holds a chair as professor in the foremost Medical
college on the PaeiCc Coast. In addition to all
this, he U a thorough Biblical scholar and theolo
gian ; and knows Irom his own religious experi
ence what it Is to be "filled wilh all th fullness
of God." A man combining such scientific alula
ments with Mich intelligence and unction of prac
tical godliness could hardly do otherwise than
produce a valuable book on this aubject.
This work bears evidence of careful, elaborate,
and thoroughly digested preparation. It Is not
the offshoot of a superficial amateur. It is tbo
completed, finished production of a scientific work
man. It is tbe result of extensive knowledge,
thorough investigation, deep, cool, patient, logical
thought all fused and aglow with calm and earn
est piety. The style has tho calm jsdical, tone of
Blackstone'a commentaries. - '
It is much for ordinary Christians and students,
who have not the time and means of investigating
every subject, to get in a volume like tbis the con
centrated results of toe life-long study of a man,
like Dr. Wythe, on a subject of such vast extent
and vital importance. It is a book to be leisurely
read and patiently studied. Seldom have We read -a
book with as much pleasure, and found as much
information and aol id thought compacted tn the
same number cf pages.
A glance at the contents will show from tho
headings of the chapters, the range and attractive
ness of tbe subjects. In our own city, at tbis time,
we could call attention to tba ninth chapter, whero
tbe subject of Spiritualism an old, withered
slump, putting out afresh in our day a prolifie l
shoot of suckers and poisonous abominations has
iu roots laid bare in all their ugliness, as showing
their start amid tbe Impurity of pagan Idolatry and
heathen imposture, playing upon aiuli developing
