China and Japan.
The intelligent Japanese considers his own fair
insular government the Rome of the Eastern World,
and is impatient of the arrogance of the Chinese,
his more numerous, but to hit thinking, more un
couth neigh'iord. Just now the two nations ure
qtiareling ovtr the island of Formosa. This island
lies off the coast of China, in latitude 2'.' north.
As its name implies, it is a very benntiful country.
The whole coast ot the island facing the mainland,
belongs to China. The eastern portions of lids
island ure inhabited by ahorignees, a .tiratical
crew, and these are the chaps who have kicked up
aucb a rtimpus between China and Japan. It ap
pears that they have been committing serious dep
redations upon Japanese commerce. This, of
course, enraged tbe victims and they entered pro
test at tho court of the celestials, but the sa?e dis
ciples of Confucius blandly told them tho Formo
sans were of age to them they must look for
reparation, which the Japanese immediately st-t
out to do. They carne, Ihey saw. they conquered,
but like the English on the gold coast, they were
unwilling to leave after they had obtained satisfac
tion. They penetrated inland towards tho Chinese
possessions. China, as well as America, has a sort
of Monroe doctrine, and she cannot brook the
presence of her rival on the' land which she has
tacitly ruled since 1C83. Hence she, in turn, has
protested, but Japan is determined to stay. How
the case will be settled cm only be solved by.

4 " ' Peddling Licenses. - -
Mr. Editor I write through your columns to
oppose the bill lately become law permitting the
peddling of good in this country, encouraged to
do so from the fact that by the wording of the
law, seeing it is that ho "may,-' an option is left
with the Minister of the Interior whether or not he
shall grant the licenses, and hoping that should it
be shown that such a law is unnecessary, its policy
short-sighted and its effects an injustice upon a
numerous and respectable class of citizens, Its
Li.eiin, iib i
action may yet be tayd
In a country sparsely settled, whose i
wera out of convenient reach of those co
which stores supply, it might be argued as anece-f.
sity that some means should be provid'.-d whereby
goods might be more readily obtained, or in case
of anything approaching a monopoly resulting
in exorbitant and oppressive charges, such a law
as this might properly be made ; but here, through
out the country, we have an almost excessive
number of well stocked stores, and a consequent
competition which brings goods to the public at
scarcely paying prices.
One object, or perhaps the sole object, the advo
cates of this bill had in view was the probable in
crease of revenne i but we venture to foretell that
in the long run it will not meet the expectations of
its supporters, for the consequence of au extended
exercise of this law is plainly ruinous to store
keepers : placed by it, as they are, J,o every disad
vantage, the result may probably be the closing of
many country establishments which are at present,
paying, beyond licenses, a tax. upon valuable
stocks and premises, whereas the return upon the
merchandise of itinerant traders will be nominal,
or nothing, as their stocks can quickly be reduced
at tax; time, or by- moving from ona district to
another they may avoid tho 'Collection altogHuer.
We would not anticipate the character of those
who will take out tbe licenses, but we more than
suspect that the visits of the new trader will be
attendet by anything but good, and al in oet certain
to prove a public nuisance arid a moral injury.
It is not necessary to state in detail in what
ways this law bears adversely on store-keepers ;
but if in one way more than another it is that
owing to tbe payment of wages being generally
made monthly or to the prospect of produce, in
doing business considerable credit is given, but
by pressing goods upon people at their doors or
in their bouses, encouragement is given to spend
money or barter produce which they Intended for
and which virtually belongs to their creditor.
We were not surprised to see the numerously
signed petition of merchants and others of Hono
lulu objecting to the bill, and cannot think that on
making it law the KcjTet.entatives gave it due
cuutmciauuu. - - ..... . .i
