The TWEN7T-riiTU annivcrfar of the marriage
of tl.e II in. Mr. ar. l Mr. Uis.'iop occurred jester

. Bv the arrival of the ttcazner on "Wednesday
lat, news was received at the Foreign OfEee of
the decease of S. L F. Od. ll, fq., His Maj
esty's Charge d'Aflaires and Consul General in
the United State, at bis residence in Brooklyn,
on 'May Ctb, Mr. Odcll pucceeded Schuyler
Livingston, Fq. in the ofSee of Charge d' Affaires
and Coneul General for tlie Unite'J States on the
31st day of July, 1802, and has continued to ful
fill the duties of that office ever bincc moat rv
ceptably V all jiersona who were brought into
contact with biin. Ilu was a partner in the emi
nent business firm of Barclay, Livingston Jb Co.,
and enj-ijcd the reputation of a scrupulously ex
act and honorable as well as a liberal business
man. Ilia interest in these Islands (which be
bad never visited) and in all that pertained to
them waa Tery great. Amidst the cares of a euc
cenarul and extennive bunincM, be locked upon his
Commission from thia country aa a high honor,
and wa. never barpier than when endeavoring to
forward its interests or to execute some commis
sion. During the negotiations for Reciprocity in
lhC6-0, bis extensive acquaintance, ready ingen
uity and untiring industry, in favorably repre
senting our caj ic New York, were moet advan
tageous and inoet fully appreciated by our
envoyes. Hid late Majesty Kamehameba V., in
acknowledgment of bis servicis to this country,
appointed him Knight Commander of the Order
of Kainehaineha I. The national flag waa dis
played at half-mast on all the public buildings and
on Punchbowl battery durirg Thursday last, aa a
token of respect for his memory.
Is rNMCTiox with the subject of the now
vacant post of Hawaiian Charge d 'A Mai res in the
Unite 1 State", we have hoard Chief Justice Allen
menti oned as the probable appointee. There are
several i!auible reasons for anticipating that His
Honor may bo offered this bouorable and impor
tant position. Rumors have been current in the
community for some time past, that the Chief
Juttice intended, under certain contingencies, to
resign his present position as heud of the Judi
ciary, which be ba so ably fillet lor a period of
over twenty years, and in which be has grown old.
And though bis physical and mental faculties
are yet vig ruu, still the fact that he baa reached
and long since jarred three score ycara and ten
the period when the average man rcquiree rest
of both body and mind has doubtless bad a ten
dency to strengthen thotte rumors. It may safely
be assumed that a permanent residence in the
United States, th boruo of his early manhood,
if coupled with an official position under thia
government to which a fair compensation were
attached, would be far from distasteful to Judge
Allen, if we may lc allowed to draw an infer
ence from Lia frequent and prolonged visits to
that country during the past years. We ccr
tain'y can think of no one more competent
to undertake the discharge of several important
dutie which should presently devolve upon a
Hawaiian Charge d'Afl'aires in the United States ;
which are, first to personally assist in promoting
in the next session of Congress the necessary leg
islation for carrying out the treaty of reciprocity
passed by the Senate ; and second to aEsifct
Hawaiian exhibitors at the Centennial Expoeition
next year. Here, assuredly, there will be oppor
tunity to do the state some service. And there
after, the office in question, or perhaps that of a
Minister Ri'dcnt of Hawaii in the United
States, will continue to be important and neces
sary in view of our increasing intimate relations
with that country.
In our issue of last week we referred briefly to
irrigation of waeto lands, ns a species of public
imirovement wbic'i should be utdertaken by the
Government. But while all will readily admit
that works of this nature on a large scale would
be highly desirable, that they would double the
area of productive lands in the islands and greatly
enhance our taxable resources, yet the objection
will doubtK-Mi be raised in some quarters as it is
in respect to many other projects of public im
provement, when it ii suggested that they be
undertaken by Government that when these are
needed, private enterprise will be found ready to
do all that is required, better than it can be done
by Government, and that aa a rule, this course is
preferable to ofEoial intermeddling with such
enterprises. Wc grant the correctness of thia
position in countries like the United States, where
Government is always behind the people in enter
prise and eo-oreralivr ability. There, for several
reasons which arc obvious enough, public im
provements undertaken by Government are often
notoriously mere j-.-ba fjr benefitting contractors
out of the public purse. Here however the con
ditions are all different. Neither the capital for
sjcculation, the publio spirit and enterprise, nor
the energy, exist among us to undertake works of
the nature indicated. Consequently, if Govern
ment refuses to move in the matter, it is quite
clear that nobody eke will move, and that nothing
whatever will be djne. The Government, with
c, in all matter cf public utility that are to
benefit the country at large the building of
steamers, among other things must take the
initiative, if not the entire control and manage
ment. And in the project which we propose
here to advocate the construction of extensive
irrigation works no corporation or association
of capitalists or agriculturists would poess the
same advantages as the Government, in all par
ticulars ei-sential to succcm. In the bands of
Government moreover, the danger of a tyranizing
monopoly would be out of the question. But in
a country like California, private enterprise
always cornea to the fore in cases of p ublic neces
sity, or even of expediency. Several years since
a few farmers near Vi-alia, in the San Joaquin
valley, perceiving tie necessity of irrigation for
their lands formed an a;-ociatiun among them
selves, and in six weeks they had built and in
operation a Peop le's Ditch," eight miles long,
twenty-four feet wide and three feet deep, that in
the drleK season irrigates sixteen thousand acres
cf land. The entire cost, besides the labor be
stowed on it by the farmers themselves, was six
i hundred dollars in cash. Wc note this instance
j m.-rely to illustrate the difference between that
. cue try and people and this. Such a proceeding
W'julJ be out of the question here,
j Irrig-ttion was the first application of eticLce
i to agriculture, imp reding Nature into the service
j of man. By the inundation of rivers Nature first
taught this art to man in Egypt. In the earliest
j times, that was a land of irrigating canals, for
we read in Genctis of Lot, who emigrated from
Egypt tj the neighborhood of the Jordan, that
be lifted up bia ejes, and behold all the p lain of
Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere,
before tLe Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah,
! even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of
f-JF l us tljou comett unto Zoar." The art of
irrigation was extensively practiced in ancient
times in Pcrtia, in India, and by the Romans.
In Peru, the ancient civilization of the people is
attested by the ruins of immense irrigation works.
In Spain, France and Italy to-day, great atten
tion is paid to irrigation by the State, and in
I each of thot-e countries, Government, has either
constructed worts, or enacted laws to regulate
the distribution of the water so necessary to the
Spain may bo described as a country where the
water is more valuable than the land in a ratio of
from five to twenty. The Spaniards have an
experience of a thousand years behind them in
irrigation. There is probably no part of the
world where water is more carcfu'ly applied, and
there certainly ia no country where the legislation
ia more clear and precise. Irrigation in Spain ia
the legacy left by the Moors. All or nearly all
of the old systems were the work of this wonder
ful people. Not only the works but the cuetoms of
the Moors remain in &oiue of the provinces almost
untouched since their departure. We find in
Spain every variety in administrative cysteine for
using the water. In Valencia, in the lands irri
gated from the Jucar river and Murviedro, the
water and the land are, eo to speak, married
without a possibility of divorce ; when the land
is sold the water that irrigates it goes with it.
Neither can be sold separately. The irrigator
cannot even dispxibe of bis turn or privilege of
Italy employs for irrigation more than 21,000
cubic feet of water per second, supplying 1,C(.K),000
acres of land. It ia estimated that there have
been expended for the irrigation of 1,000,000
acres in Lombardy not 1cm than $200,000,000.
This expenditure haa been spread over eeven
hundred yeara and haa made Lombardy a garden.
The returns from this large investment of capital
are to be sought in the indirect revenues accruing
to the Government from the increacJ productions
and the general prosperity of tne country. The
canals arc chiefly owned by the Government ;
some, however, are in private bands. The eame
lesson is to be learned here aa in India : aa a
financial investment for private parties; irrigation
works have not generally been favorable.
Jrrigation is quite extensively practiced in
France, and several new canals have been built
within tho past few yeara. The principle of
management of works by the irrigators applies
here aa well aa in Spain and Italy. There is,
however, more interference by the Government.
The Government owns no canals ; they are gener
ally built by tho landowners. The Government
encourages the construction of canals. In the
charter for the Carjentras canal, built in 1854,
the irrigators were guaranteed that no increase of
the land assessment sho'xld be made for twenty
five years after the completion of the works.
There is no provision ;n the French law corres
ponding to the Spaniel , which permits a majority
of proprietors to carry on an irrigation enterprise
and compels the minority to boar their share of
the expenses. When a charter for a canal is
given, it states the quantity of water which is
granted. The plana for the works must be ap
proved by the Government. In Borne casca the
canals are built under the direction of the cngi-r-jera
of the corp-8 of Ponts tt Chaussees. In all
casea the works are periodically inspected by the
engineers of the corps.
There could be no more important project sub
mitted by tho Ministry to the next Legislature,
nor one involving considerations of greater inter
est, than a plan for tbe irrigation of the wide
extent of arable land on the north-eastern slope of
Haleakala, on Maui, extending from Makawao to
the rIains of Kahuiui, known as the " Commons."
and amounting to about 100,000 acrcsj There
is no end to tho capacity of those landa for agri
cultural productions, particularly sugar. Water
only is lacking, and in lacking this they lack
everything necessary to give value. . In the dry
seasons, often extending througli half the year,
these rich, alluvial elopes are a desert, dry and
parched, scarce fit for a goat pasture, and covered
with clouds of dust raised by tho trade winds
that sweep across the country. With water, the
change that would come over this now barren
and worthless kula " would be almost magical.
It would couvcrt tho desert waste into productive
lands, the seat of thriving industries, and add
immensely to the wealth of tho country at large.
Now it happens that away up on the south
eastern 6ide of Haleakala, there are ecvcral run
ning streams of water, one of which at lcaot is
never known to be dry, and which are now dis
charging their wealth of water into tho sea in tfie
district of Koo'au.
During tho Session of 1872, a member for
Wailuku p resented a petition from a number of
the citizens of Maui, setting forth the immense
advantage that would result by bringing the
water of the mountain streams down upon the
lands in question, and asking that Government
cause a preliminary survey with a view to under
taking the work. The subject waa referred to
the Minister of the Interior, who reported on
the op inion of one who bad no personal knowl
edge of the locality that the engineering diffi
culties in the way were very great, (which is not
really the fact) and that the cost would be at
least $200,000. This report ro discouraged the
not over-zcaloua friends of the measure that
further consideration was dropp-ed. But allow
ing that the necessary works will cost $100,000,
of which there is no proof, and the reasonable
probabilities are that it can be done for less the
investment will pay very handsomely, and prove
better than a gold mine. A portion only of the
land thus rendered available for cultivation and
brought into the market would readily sell for
more than enough to repaj the cost, oven if that
should reach the highest estimate mentioned.
Will it not then be the duty ol a wise Govern
ment to take the initiative in this measure at the
next Session of the Legislature?
How the subject of irrigation is beginning to
be viewed in California will appear from the fol
lowing, which we quote from the Los Angelos
Some dy. not far in the future, ibe question of a
Stite irrigation system will come ur, anJ the propo
sition will be advocated and epposed in proportion as
I icalities will be directly or indirectly benefitted.
The measure that proposes to tax all the property in
the State for the benefit of only a portion cf the rec
ple of that State, is certsiu to meet etrong opposition,
jet tt is olieu tee case tuai suca measurts ween
carrieJ into effect, work a reduction of tsxts frtra
cne end of the State to the other. V'c have no
doubt but that a proportion to issue State bonds to
the amount of twenty milliocs of dollars, to be used
in turning the waters of the rivers cut over the
plains and valleys, would be strongly opposed by the
greater portion cf the tax-payers residing outsiJe cf
the localities to be irrigate J. But aa the increase in
our products and the addition to our population
wculJ be very great through the irrigating facilities
obtained Ly a u;irutti& of the niter, it is almost
certain that evea wilh the tsxaticn cecery to pay
the irrigation bendi, the average assessment cn ail
' wcul J iiot exceeJ the present rate. Suppose that by
expe&dicg twenty n,iiiion dollars in turiiinz the
' waters ct the Sacramento, San Joaquin. SiLta Auaa
j and ether rivers cf our State rer their respective
j valleys, we increase our products ry one hundred
; million dollars per ancoaj. and tbruufh the cvnse
: que&t increase in the area of our agricultural lan is
all several hanJred thousand to our population,
woul J not the investment prove a good one ? We are
inclined to believe it would.
The San Francisco iliamincr, in speaking of
an article about Colonel Steinberger'a mission to
Samoa which appeared in the Advertiser some
two or three months ago, comes to the following
sage conclusions :
"The profound ecrecy with which thi- bushier
is sought to be enveloped givrs plaii.-ibTity to the
Conjecture muce by some observer .f events that
It is Grant's intention to get possession of tbise Inl

establish a personal govemuitMit in cai his third-t-?rm
project comes to gritf. This supposiiiou

i m-ction with Admiral Porter's oracular remark in
j his lat annual report that Robeson's navy is fully
j able to cope with the war canot-s of the South Sea
Iaudt.-ra. There is no doubt that Graut was deeply
impressed by the intimacy he contracted with His
Majesty the King of tbe Sandwich Islands during
the recent visit of the latter to this country, aud if
he canuot be perpetual President of the United
States, it may be that be hopes to Gud consolation
in becoming supreme tuouarch over all the un
draped inhabitants of the Navigator Isles, which
have many more caimibals than the dominions of
his friend Kalakaua. and plenty of room for all
his relations. It is probable that the natives would
take kindly to Grant's methods of government,
since th'y are so fond of 'rings' that many wear
theui in their noses"
New York, May 7. A special from I'ort-au-Priuce
dated May 3d says : The revolution was at
the first moment subsequent to the outbreuk, put
dowu by the Government troops. Generals Price,
Brvce aud Pierre were killed. The foreign consu
lates were immediarely crowded with refugees who
sought shelter from the violence of the natives.
Martial law was poclaiiued aud proclamation
made containing a promise of amnesty to tkose who
would surrender at occe to"the officers of the Gov
