Otr coNTurroRAEr says that the protest of the
refiners is a grossly exrggerated statement."
We will not for a moment dispute this point ; but
merely observe that the calculations of the pro
testants are doubtless based upon the gures
given by him from time to time daring the past
fifteen years. It baa been repeatedly stated that
the area of sugar-land in the kingdom ranged
from one hundred thousand to one hundred and
fifty thourand acres. Admit, however, that fifty
thousand acres should be under cultivation for
one yenr, yielding 3,000 pounds of sugar to the
acre, and we should have the amount of one
hundred and fifty millions of pounds, as claimed
by the refineries to be onr capacity of production.
We beuxte the saying emanated from the pool
of rolitics, that " every man hna his price.'
However much we may dispute the justness of
the dictum as to persons, it may too often be
applied to newspapers with truth. The San
Francidco Commercial I h raid has for a year past
been a firm friend and advocate of Hawaiian
Reciprocity, but all on a sudden, apparently
getting a breeze in an opposite direction, it tacks
about and declare itself converted to the side of
the refiners, through the array of solid reasons "
given in their protest! The principal one, and
which evidently impresses the Herald most, is
that if we at the islands should get reciprocity
we would immediately erect en gar refineries and
proceed to monopolize the trade, which, says the
Herald, would work as embargo to the import
ation of sugar from other countries, and place as
comparatively at the mercy of Hawaiian refiners
and planters." And we ore told that this is the
chief ground of opposition to the treaty, that
it will remove from our midst large manufactur
ing interests that employ, directly and indirectly,
several thousand people, and transfer them to the
Hawaiian If lands." This is a contingency that;
it will be safe to say, never before entered the
heads of the most sanguine dreamers of what the
treaty might accomplish for us.
While we are second to no one in a patriotic
desire for the welfare and prosperity of the king
dom, we cannot hide from ourselves the fact that
the outlook for the year to come is anything but
assuring nt so much because of the more than
pof sibiliry f the failure of our mission to Wash
ington, but in a larger degree because of the
apathy that possesses our leading men, whether
engaged in agriculture, commerce, or in the exe
cutive departments of government. We seem
very generally to have accepted the postulate :
If we can obtain the treaty, we may be enabled
to go on ; if we do not succeed in the treaty nego
tiation, we must succumb. A very pertinent
question that comes naturally at this point is
And then what? Practical thinkers should ad
dress themselves to the evolution of a policy
whereby to sustain the state and protect our in
dustries from farther disaster in the event of the
failure of our treaty commissioners. To accept
failure as inevitable and to make no effort to ward
off its consequences, is neither manly nor wise.
But we have heard the thought expressed that one
cause of the existing apathy might be found in the
confident expression of opinion by a joarnal of
this city to the effect that the treaty: must assur
edly pass; an opinion based entirely upon our
great need of such a treaty, and not upon the
best information to be had from leading journals
and correspondents in the United States. We
opine that the journalist thould make a judicial
selection of testimony from beet witnesses, and
give it to the public for a verdict. Let each
reader apply his own reasoning to the subject;
but if tb jouroalie feels called upon to sum up
the testimony, he should give the facts for and
against, with his opinion as to the weight of tes
timony. We were led into the above train of thought
after reading the Gazette of thia week, in-which
F space without stint is given to sustain the muet
i . i . . . r 1 " . J I -j m.
nave-iue-ireaiy iaca. ureat uiugenco is eviaent
in collecting extracts from foreign journals, but
not one thought or word to the possibility of failure.-
Our reading of late American journals,
and extracts from letters of trustworthy corres
pondents, not in Washington, have led us to con
clude that the treaty is in danger, and thus think
ing, we deem it our duty to say so to our readers.
The telegraphic correspondent of the Alia' states
that a conversation with several leading Senators
warrants the belief that the treaty will meet
with a strong opposition ; that when it cornea be
fore the Senate for consideration, it will fail.
Letters received by the last mail express the same
views, and the advice is given (by parties whose
interests do not coincide with the advice) to make
the best terms that we can with the refineries.
The papers and letters of February 1st to 8th, it
is true, are full of expressions of confidence that
the treaty would be a success; but during the
three weeks following the last named date, Mr.
David A. Wells bad given his opinion as to the
probable effect of the treaty upon the revenue of
the United States, and the refiners bad sent for
ward their protest. However much we may ridi
cule the falsity and folly of the latter document,
let os not blind ourselves to the strong probability
that its statements will have no little weight with
the average Senator. And the Senators are the
arbiters of our fortunes so far as sugar affects
' .' Xo calling in this busy life of ours is sur
rounded with such er-dlees, Eevcr-ceaeing care,
filled with such a variety of detail and freighted
with such peculiar responsibility as that of edit
ing a newejafcr. The judgment and common
sense required in deciding w hat shall be published
which may appeal to the taste of the peoj.le who
ore the patrons of the paper ; tle dixiniinatkin
to be exercised as to what is legitimate news and
what is to be discarded; the haste with which
conclusions must be reached as to the correctness
and propriety of matter sent in for publication ;
and a thousand and one details with which
scarcely any one outside of a newspaper See is
familiar, combine to make the profession of jour
nalism one of the most arduous and delicate of all.
It is a difficult thing sometimes to draw the line
to divide what shall go to the public and what to
the waste basket. It is a trial of judgment to
say what should properly go into the columns of
a rarer an wtat should not. No conscientious
Hi an no man that has any hon-r or humanity
about him but shrinks from the dangr of doing
injustice and wrong to a single fellow-being, no
matter how bumble he may be. But when a
wrong is believed to be done by men who by
their position are before the public eye, then tbe
newspaper is expected to speak out, and to speak
the truth, however unpleasant it may be and
whoever may call it in question. Bat will this
invariably be done is it generally done ?
After all that may be said in flowing style and
well-rounded periods about patriotism, inde
pendence, a determination to write down abuses
and to work reforms, it comes to this, that no
case man wCI undertake to start a newspaper
without first asking himself the question will it
pay? Tbe publication. .of a newspaper is the
farthest thing in the world removed from senti
ment it is a pure bus loess transaction, and must
be carried on as such if it is to succeed. When
it is evident that by boldly speaking an unpleasant
troth and persistently maintaining it, a newspaper
will be ruined or its interests seriously damaged,
tbe result will be in most cases that the unpleas
ant truth will not be spoken, or at all events not
promptly or plainly. The newspaper that is
always blurting out the convictions of its editor,
formed perhaps without due and thoughtful con
sideration, is not, in tbe nature of things, likely
to prove a success. But as in other trades, so an
editor must please bis customers, if be expects to
succeed in business. While be may in bis own
mind consider that what be is advocating is im
practicable or even fallacious, yet he most study
and ascertain the political bent of those likely to
be his customers, find out and advocate whatever
they will be interested in, or which in their view
pertains to their good government, their commer
cial and agricultural progress, and their social
Antl thus it will appear that it is not so much
newspapers which direct public opinion as that
public opinion controls and directs the tone of the
newspapers. While it is- true that the press can
and does help immensely in improving the tone
and morals of public opinion, yet it is also true
that the press and the people act and re-act upon
each other. It will be remembered, in support
of this view, that the leading newspapers of the
world have at various times changed their policy
and modified their tone not a little. At the
outset of all great movements for reform, these
newspapers have followed in tbe wake of public
opinion, and then, taking the lead, they have
guided and controlled it, checking injurious en
thusiasm oo tbe one hand and arousing from
apathy and indifference on the other. The mission of
the press has been, by the wide spread of intelli
gence to enlighten the people, so that now, a
venal or corruptly' conducted newspaper cannot
long exist in an enlightened community. And
this, is one of the healthy signs of the age in
which we live.
Toerz has alwats been more or less of a mud
dle connected with tbe subject of postage on
newspapers sent as exchanges from Honolulu to
tbe United States, and vice verpa. Different
Postmasters in that country seem to take different '
views as to tbe lawyer at all events, their practice
is different. Some of our exchanges come to us
with four cents stamps on tbcm ; some with two
cents; some marked " paid quarterly;" and some,
as the New . York Herald, with nothing to indi
cate that they pay any postage whatever. By
the Hawaiian law, exchanges between newspapers
pay no postage, but' those sent to subscribers or
transiently, are subject to a tax of two cents.
We hope that our. Postal Cormntioa may ere
long be revised and placed on a more equitable
footing. The following letter from tbe office of
the New Bedford Shipping List will explain itself :
New Bedford. February 20th, 1875.
Puhlithtrt Commercial JldvertUer :
Dear Sirs. Owing to a recent .decision of our
Post Office Department at Wash;agton, we are under
the necessity of requesting you to discontinue thet
ADTRRTisot seni io tnis omce as an exenange. in is
decision tee contend is in strict violation to the Postal
Convention between the Hawaiian Kingdom and the
United States. The decision is this :
- We are allowed to send our paper to the Sandwich
Islands to subscribers and exchanges at two cents
per pound, payable at the office of mailing. But all
papers received in tbe Cnited States from the Sand
wich Islands, are subject to one cent for each two
ounces or fraction thereof, and that to be paid at the
office of reception hi the Cnited States. So you will
perceive u have to pay fifty-two cents a year on tbe
paper you send us, and only a trifle (say about ten
cents a year) on the paper tre send you, and you hare
no postage to pay on either.- For the last eighteen
months we have been , paying the regular United
States postage of twenty 'cents a year on papers sent
and received, when the Convention declares that ex
changes between editors shall be free. If the deci
sion from Washington is correct each of your sub
scribers in the United States will have to pay fifty
two cents a year on their paper. Will you please
look into this matter. ' Perhaps Judge Allen of llono
lalu will decide differently. .
Yours respectfully, E. P. Raymond.
P. S At any time that we can reciprocate ex
changes on a fair basis shall be glad to do so.
. P. Raymond.
. T.ie fec1lritie9 of a snpposable future re
port of a day's proceedings in the great scandal
case are well bit off in tbe New York Herald of
February 13th. It supposes the trial to be still
unfinished on that day twenty-five years hence,
and its report is for February 13, a. d. 1900. It
pictures tho aged and feeble judge, counsel and
jurors, the latter having all gone into bankruptcy,
their business vanished and they lost all means of
livelihood. Evarts has meantime been President
of tbe United States; TU ton's friend has become
the Eev. Francis D. Moulton, D. D., Pastor of
the Ebenezer Methodist Episcopal Church (col
ored) ;" while the former is " tbe Rev. Theodore
Tiltoo, of the church of Grace, Mercy and Peace."
Bow en and Carpenter have also become reverends,
the latter " pastor of the Church of the Divine
Harmonies and Elective Afinities." The princi
pal personages in the case are accompanied in
court by their grandchildren, grown to manhood.
The following are the closing paragraphs of the
Ths jury tottered In slowly and took their seats,
but tefore proceeding with tbe case General Tracy,
who arose with great difficulty, .aid that he had a
petition in his hand which he would like to present to
his honor, a proceeding in which, he was happy to
say, he had obtained the consent of his learned asso
ciates on both sides.
" As your honor well knows," he said, " for the
last eleven years seven of the jurors have been in the
Brcoklyn almshouse, one of them having been re
moved ander ths care of a learned physician for a
disease of tbe brain, which had not quite pronounced
itself. As your honor knows, the demands of this
case have been of sach a character that these gentle
men have all gone into bankruptcy, their business
has vanished, they have lost all means of livelihood.
and are compelled, with their families, to accept the
gracious bounty of the city. Your honor will far
ther remember that with due consideration for the
rights of the jurymen and a vigorous determination
to uphold the majesty of the law. you issued an order
that meat should be given to the jarymen at least
once a day, and that they should have certain privi
leges not generally awarded to the inmates of the in
stitutions of charity. Now, it is my painful duty to
inform your honor that since the advent of the ring
into office great frauds have been committed, and it
has been discovered that the inmates of that alms
house have been shamefully robbed, and our intelli
gent and patient jarymen are permitted meat only
twice a week, while two of them, who find pork and
beans necessary fcr intelligent consideration of the
eaae, have been, in defiance of your honor's order,
deprived of their beans ! 'I new ask your honor for
an crder to show cause why the officers of the Brook
lyn almshouse should not be compelled to appear be
fore this; court te answer for contempt.' . .- i ,
General Pryor, who rose slowly and leaned heavily
ca his can, but spvke with a voice cf remarkable
strength considering his years, said that he was g!ad
to concur with the observations of bis learned antag
onist about tbe effect cf depriving tbe jary of bai.s.
The deprivation cf beans, as was seen from rveeut
diecaeeiorjs in Eogl.nJ, had a terrible effect upon the
intellect of a jurvn,in. General Pryor read from
Professor Liebig's " History cf the Saoiiary Condi
tion of the Human Frarce " and from Profemor Co
coon de Fevcrole'a treatise io sap pert of bis proposi
tion, and continued by citing many other aatborities
to prove thit nothing could be more a contempt of
court oc more of a plo against his client's interests
than this uuridioas effort to deprive tbe jurymen ef
what was aeeessary to their happiness and the proper
consideration of the ease. For, ia thia land of lib
erty," he eloquently continued, -any attempt oa
tbe part of these stipendiaries of Csesariaxn. these
Jaoiasaries of the milUT power, these brigands of
the Brooklyn ring, to interfere with the normal rights
of the jarymen, ahotrid be crushed." Theft was a
burst of applause, which the judge sternly checked,
remiBd'mg the audience tbatthirwara ease requiring
serious consideration and that such trifling could not
be permitted. His honor granted the order "to show
cause, returnable oa Wednesday Bert. air. Tiltoa

Four Days Later.
.3 j the arrival yesterday mc ruing of the schooners
Fannf and Peerless, 11 and 10 days from San Fran
cisco, we have received dates from that city to the 6th
We find nothing in the papers as to any action in
the Senate, which was in Session, on the Hawaiian
treaty. Some fifty firms in Saa Francisco have for
warded to Senators a petition ia favor of the treaty,
which will be found in full in to-day's paper. We
also copy an editorial on the subject from the S. F.
Callol the 7th.
Oio the 2d instant in the Senate, the vote by which
the Tax and Tariff bill was tabled tbe day before was
reconsidered, and the bill pased. Ia Washington
news of March 5th, we find the following, which is'
conclusive as to the increased duties oa sugars :
Washisgtojt, March 5th, 1875.
To the Collector of Customs, JK'exo Orleans: Tbe
new rates of duty take effect March 8d, 1875, except
on goods in warehouses, and except those on ship
board, February 10th, 1875. Add to calculated du
ties on all sugars 25 per centum. The abatement of
10 per centum is no longer allowed. Bolting cloth
free. 11. B. Bbistow, Secretary.
The Senate met in Extra Session on Friday the 5th,
when after swearing in new members an adjourn
ment took place until Monday the 7th. "A te'egram
of the 4th says, " Tbe Hawaiian Treaty will proba
bly bs the first business before tbe Senate in extra
session. Tobacco and manufactures of tobacco will
be added to the list of American producta admitted
free into Hawaii." :
Moreno's Asiatic Telegraphic bill, which was re
ported favorably by the Senate Committee on the 3d.
was not reached for action.
The franking privilege has been virtually restored
to members of Congress.
The bill for tbe admission of Colorado finally passed.
A bill has passed providing for coinage of 20 cent
Advices from. Buenos Ay res state that the palace of
tbe Catholio Archbishop ia that city has been sacked
and the houses of the Jesuits set on fire;
Religious troubles in Mexico still continue, and are
on the increase. ' ,
From Europe we learn that " in consequence of the
Pope's last encyclical, tbe German Government is
after the priests again. The Pope leads, Bismarck
trumps. Pope plays again, Bismarck pulls in another
John Mitchell, who bv lisreali's motion was ruled
out of Parliament, is renominated in Tipperary.
To cabinet had yet been formed in France. . .
In Spain, the Carlists bad been defeated la an
engagement with the Alfonsisls.'
Loxdox, March 6lh, 6 a. 5k Tbe Test's Berlin
correspondent telegraphs that the adoption; by the
Prussian Parliament, of tbe new bill tor tbe with
drawal of estate endowments from the Catholic
clergy, is considered secure. ..AH parties, except
the Ultramontanes and extreme Conservatives,
bare agreed to support it.' There is reason to' be
lieve that It Is tbe intention of tbe Government to
prepare another measure, : requiring. a. test .oath
from Catholics in the civil service, who number
several thousand, and dismissing from the employ
of the Government those who fail to give satisfac
tory assurances Of loyalty. .. 2 -2 , u
rocTnKA Islands. Captain King, of the cutter
Xeslie, while recruiting labour at Aurora, one of tbe
New Hebrides Group, was murdered by tbe na
tives. They also killed tbe other natives which
composed the boat's crew- There was another
troax on snore -av tne same ume, in cnarge oi me
trading master.' -ne shoved off. and tried to cover
tbe first boat with bis gun ; every time be fired the
natives dodged behind the boat, and then would run
out and club the crew before the mate could load
again. They stripped the body of the captain aud
dragged it into the bush, in sight of those in the
boatgi The natives seemed to be friendly a few min
utes before, and exchanged trade,' and no reason
can be assigned for the outbreak. 7 Tbe trading
master, being no navigator, did not know what to
do with the vessel, but after some knocking about
they managed to reach Havanuah harbour, und the
mate of the JIatlie Jackson, the vessel that was
wrecked there, brought the cutter on to Levuka.
Captain Douglass, of the Mary Eliza, has just
returned from a labour cruise. He has brought
sixty-Ore labourers. He reports that while at Am
byrn Island, be Faw ia the possession of the natives
a ship's boat, painted white, with mast, sails, and
oars, which bad something like a name painted on
tbe stern. Tbe natives would not allow him to
land, and bad fighting pits dug on tbe beach. He
was there some six months before, and lauded some
labourers. Each of these bad, a gun, and on thia
occasion made use of then.: -'- -

That vas a mournful confession which wa t&aJo
by a prominent witness daring a trial still pending.
In a letter paf in evidence. He was sick tf "great
men public men famous men." Is hero-worship
then only the weakness of callow youth and of trust
ing inexperience? Is there nothing then religious, in
the etynxlogical sense of the word, ia hero-worship?
Do we all find familiarity breeding contempt at last,
discovering at last what was known to the valttd
thmmbrtci oar idol from the first. In car first days how
we reverenced a man who had written bock, saying
over aad over, how great and good, or at any rate, how
great he mast be ! Since then, may bt, we have
written books ourselves, and know how little Is im
pHed by that distinction. As oar reading, specially
of biography, grows more general, we become ac
quainted with the very neck of Alexander, with ths
sensualities of Casar, with Cicero's trimming aad
the venality of Marlboroegh, with Washington's hot
temper, the vanity cf Adams and the foibles of Hara
ilroa. As biography is written now, there are no
secrets after death and burial, while la these days cf
gossip "obscurity Is positively" delicious. Happy be
who has done nothing to make himself famous.
Happy she, too, for that matter. We hope that
many a schoolboy, wise beyond his years, is saying
to himself; "These great men, public men, famous
men what are they to me ! Give me my books, my
home, and those who love me. Give me a self of
whom I am tot ashamed. , Give me a peaceful, use
ful life of homely joys and quiet labors, and as for
the jade Fame, let her go !" Yes, lad, let her go.
At any rate, wait for her to come to you. The hot
pursuit, the hankering to be talked of, the eagerness
I to be printed, the relish for puffery, the passion for
literary reputation ana lor an immortality oi a lew
months all these bring fever and falsehood, and
final weariness of soul. He orders his lift the most
wisely who is content with intellectual acquisition
for its own sake, and to whom no plaudits are so
sweet as the approbation of his own better nature.
The distance between the greatest maa and the
smallest is at some points so small as to be well nigh
imperceptible; and the best which the famous ac
quire may be the fortune of the obscure also.
Andy Johnson is' now swinging round the circle
in Tennessee, assuring his fellow citisens that the
silver lining to the political cloud has at last become
discernable; and that the country is tolerably safe.
