SATVRDAY. APRIL 1.
The Hawaiian Uazette of thin vreet states that
the native j aper Ka Lahui Jfau-aii " oppotos tlte
intrrxluction of Chiucee laborers through govern
ment agency." Anyone who will intelligently
read the article nlludcd to in the native paper
will know that the statement of the Gazette la
not true. 4'caJ the article in question, and then
TCi3 tlie"comment3 thereon by the Gazette, and
the animus fatands out. This attempt of the Ga
zette ia one of those cases we often see illustrated
where the partial statement of a truth, separated
from other stated facts and from the general tone
and spirit that gave them utterance, become
more damnable than an open lie. The writer in
the native paper, a native hiuifclf (for we happen
to knofV who be is,) is discussing not merely the
question of repopulation. It is not a question
with him whether there shall be a people on these
fair islands in the future, lie knows there is a
future for Hawaii, grand and happy. But will
that future be bis? Will bis race be the people?
That is the question for him, as it is uppermost
in the mind of every intelligent Hawaiian to-day.
lie 6ees his own race quietly but surely going to
extinction, while as surely another people is com
ing up to take their places and to possess their
lands. He buries his dead and plants a fig tree
over the grave, because be says, the foreigner
will respect the tree for its fruit, and so the
sacred dust will be safe from intrusion when
there are no loving eyes to watch it. People eay
he is growing lawless and lazy. It is not the
ugliness ot a vicious heart. It is the vicioueness
of despair, and his eoul cries out to Heaven and J
to humanity lor help. lie expresses the opinion
that the Chinese arc not the people to assist in;
preserving the identity of the Hawaiian pcoplcj
because the Chinese will t:ot nffiliato with other
races, but maintain their own distinct national
character wherever they go. Is be not correct?
The writer in the Lahui Hawaii says distinctly,
1 quote his language, ' wc arc not opposed
to their coming, ly no means." And he repeats
this sentiment at the close of his article. Aj the
same time he says, " we do not see the propriety
of the government importing at the expense of
the people." And way not a Hawai
ian fail to sec the propriety of a thing that fits
the Gazette's immaculate conceptions of pro
priety 7 And if he fails to see it, may he not
have the manhood to say so without misinterpre
tation, and without subjecting himself to the
charge of being 41 unjust ?" Out upon such driv-
lin as that ! We think we know what ails the
Gazette. ; :
The Lahui Hawaii is asked if it is not espedi-v
ent for the government to do any thing towards;
fostering and aiding plantations. We will noti
presume to answer for the editor of that paper,
but being a elosc reader of its columns we know
whereof we affirm when we 6ay that its writers
are doing all in their power to impress upon "the
people the importance of fostering every indus
trial enterprise In the land. Regulated industry
and labor, both on the plantations and on their
kulcanas ? honesty, sobriety and thrift ; temper
ance; purity oi Hie; contentment, ana oueaience
to lawful authority ; patriotism, and domestic
affection ; and above all a happy, hopeful lookin
forward to a higher epiritual life; these and
kindred themes are what occupy the attention of
those who regularly write for the Lahui Hawaii,
eo that the paper is at present the moBt powerful
instrument for the education of the masses that
there is in the country. And yet when a writer
a Hawaiian by birth, his heart overflowing
with love for his race while he sees their impend-
ing doom nas tue manliness to stana up anu
eay generously, " Let the Chinese come, we do
not oppose them, but they are not the people to
save our race, and we do not 6ee the propriety
of introducing them for that purpose," then the
Gazete must Btep to the front and raise its voice
about the " unjuet etatement," as the cur baits
the lion at bay bleeding from his death wound.
All honor to those Chinese gentlemen and their
families who exercise a healthful elevating influ
ence upon the native people. They are the ex
ception, and the exception proves the rule.
The Gazette adds, " it will not do to condemn
the Chinese as a class and teach the natives to
despise them." Notice the wicked inference. Of
course, the Lghui Hawaii condemns the Chinese
as a class and teaches the natives to deepise them!
"Oh, shame, where ia thy blush ! " Wc throw
back the insinuation.
Who pray, condemns the Chinese as a class?
and who is teaching the natives to despise them?
In the name of humanity we protest against this
attempt of the Gazette to raise an issue between
the Hawaiians and the Chinese for the sake of
thrusting its lance at the Lahui Hawaii. And
could it find no better occasion than this, no less
guarded point in the armor, no more vulnerable
place at which to point the dagger? But it has
failed even here.
Mr. Editor : It is undoubtedly a manly action
to make a personal attack on a man who is not on
the spot to defend himself; but it is far braver to
make vague personal charges, hints of something
dark and disgracefnl againet a political opponent.
Who steals my purse is a thief, and if caught tke
law will deal with him; but he who filches from me
my good name is something worse than a thief,
he comes nearer to the character of an assassin and
deserves no more mercy, although he too frequently
There is something so dastardly in the act of
throwing out anonymous slanders and insinuations
which can not, on account of their very vagueness,
be met by the object against whom they are aimed.
that the man guilty of it may sa.'ely be held to be as
contemptible as he is epitefal.
And what can be thought of the cause of which
the defenders find it necessary to abandon the dis
cussion and to revert by way of argument to abuse
and innuendo against their political opponent ? Why
that it is hopelessly rotten and indefensible. The
artifice, however, is too shallow and will not succeed.
Ministers may be too high and mighty to listen with
patience and courtesy to the representations of their
ellow citizens, but it is well they should remember
thit they themselves are on their trial and will be
held to strict account of their doings, if there is
either sense or patriotism in the members of the

The Schooner Fleet. The Alia of the 18th,
speaking of the projected departures of the OUego,
Flying Jifis! and Fanny on their usual sea otter
hunt, says there was a little betting as to which ves
sel would reach Honolulu first. The Alia bts on
the Fanny, but we believe there was not much dif
ference between her time and that of the Flying
Mist. But the Bonanza made the champion pas
sage, so far.
The Bonanza. This beautiful schooner, now the
property of our friend the whilom journalist J. II.
Black, Esq., made the run down from San Francisco
in steamer time eleven days and he says be could
have made it in nioe, if be had kept a strong breeze.
The Bonanza is bound to Petropaulski, with freight,
after discharging which she will proceed on a voyage
the direction and nature of which is best known to
her owner. We heartily wish friend Black all the
success he can desire in his new enterprise.
:" The Weather still continues a puzzle. Following
the eclipse and change of the moon on Saturday, we
had several days of the old fashioned island sort
sunshine and trade-winds; but on Thursday morn
ing the wind had canted again to the Southward,
with occasional showers, while yesterday the sun
shone with the fervency of July. During March,
as we note in our exchanges, storms prevailed all over
the United States and Europe, as well as in these
Exit Measles. The community is to be congra
tulated upon the fact that this disease, brought here
by the last steamer from San Francisco, has disap
peared under the care of the Board of Health with
out spreading among the people. And in this con
nection we may remark, that had the result been
different had the disease spread and become fatal
among the people what an outcry there would,
have been against the Board ! Therefore let us praise
them for their successful management : not foreettiiiz I

have devolved very onerous duties. '

are pleased to learn that the government has paid

Concert tor Mojtdat. By reference ttf a special
otice in another column, it will be observed that a
cumber of our leading citizens have tenJered a eom
'plimentary benefit to Miss Atlanti, to come off at
jthe Hawaiian Hotel on Monday evening next, Mr.
fllerbert having kindly tendered the use of his large
hall for the occasion. We learn that several of bur
talented lady and gentlemen amateurs have volun
teered their services in aid of this effort to assist a
very estimable lady and talented artiste. In view Of
the attractions thus offered, and for the farther and
still higher consideration of the worthy object in
view, we anticipate a full attendance of our citizens

Mr. Editor : The Gazelle of this week has three
communications of much the same stripe, "all in a
row," the evident object of two of the writers being
to disparage a certain individual in the public esti
mation. They remind one of a pair of little curs
barking and yelping at the heels cf a noble mastiff.
What is there about the individual referred to (who,
it may be remarked, is absent from the island) that,
like a red rag to a bull, the thought of him sets cer
tain people including 'the Minister for Foreign
Affairs into such a fever of nervous apprehension ?
It must be that those small souls recognize his abil
ity, and dread that it may overshadow their own
diminutive selves. The third' writer is a truckling
apologist for the Minister, who he cannot believe
lost his temper, but who has, be thinks, left the
Memorialists " little or nothing to say V" - That
bangs Bannagher entirely. QcA-vrni ScrriciT.
Mr. Editor : I have noted with great pleasure,
your item in last Saturday's issue in regard to the
Esplanade end of Fort Street, and I trait the mat

For years past the terminus of what should be our
main avenue of both business and pleasure, has been
a road to shun if possible, whatever the season
During our rainy season the mud has been a source
of unpleasantness (to use a very mild term for
slush ankle deep) to business men, and in the dry
season it is an agony, to face the hot white glare
going down and the clouds of flying dust on the re
turn tramp most trying to the eyes of those who are
forced to leave the cool shaded light of counting

The extraordinary letter published over the signa
ture of Ilia. Tt. W. L. Green, has eteited not lit
tle surprise and, we may add laughter.
That Mr. Green should consider it necessary to
protest against any effort being made to " repopu
late the cabinet ii natural enough in him; but
that be should endeavor to put a stop to a like cflurl
made on behalf of the country, is, to say the least,
unexpected, and inconsistent.
As one of the committee who replied to the aJ
dresa of the 20th ult ; be declares that failure in the
past ' is no reason why renewed cflorts should not
continue to bo tirade' but in his own letter be
declares that nothing mutt (with a capital ,M) be
done by those who represent the beet influence, the
greatest aggregate wisdom, experience and enter
prise, as well as the wealth of tho Kingdom, unlcs
they axe endorsed by such a fair proportion of tho
native Hawaiians as tuny be entitled to represent the
Mr. Green declares that the signers of the address
wish to have Aim ho especially excludes his collea
gues turned out of office. But he says the omis
sion of the signatures of native Hawaiians is" fatal
absolutely fatal to any such result."
Reasoning thus, one is lead to believe that if Mr.
Green had secured the same signatures to a petition
asking to have him appointed as a member cf the
Cabinet, be would have considered it ' necessary
absolutely necessary, that tho list should have been
" supplemented " by the names of those who repre
sent the. people.
It is unfortunate that he cannot point to precedent
to support his position.
In the way of precedent he seems to care for none
in his present and future? course save that afford
ed by the example of those who fomented the Bar
racks riot, and gave a qauii air of respectability to
the " Emma " party. We all know who were the
sympathizers with " the people" (i. t. Mr. Green's
" people ") and we also know that in all those troub
les there never appeared as a " traitor "(or do
mogogue) a single one of that " Compact and uni
ted regiment of men' the mechanics.
The efforts made by Mr. Green to create a bad
feeling between the people, and mechanics (ho him
self makes the distinction) on the one side, and " the
press' and " a few designing men " (as be styles
the signers of the address,) on the other, shows that
he possesses abilities sufficient to lead him into diffi
culties, but which may not suffice to lead him out.
Mr. Carter's reply leaves nothing to be said in the
way of explanation of the hopes and plans cf the
signers of the address. By proving that the address
was the work cf a committee, and that its wording
was carefully considered, he does away with fully one
half or Mr. Green's letter.
In another paragraph be gives Mr. Green to un
derstand that his threat to manipulate the people for
his own ends is fully understood : and at the same
time nullifies Mr. Green's " fatal absolutely fatal "
objection to the address by showing that he pro
posed to appeal to 'those who must be incapable cf
farming correct opinions, if, as be says, they can be
convinced, by a little dexterity in stringing together
mellifluous phrases, that their Sovcriegn has been
Finally, Mr. Carter's hope and expectation that
something will be done, find an echo in every ear
nest heart : while the " ringing " tone Mr. Green de
tects in the address may be to him politically, a

Ignoramus Plants Potatoes.
One of toy neighbors raises beautiful Irish pota
toes, and cheerfully deals them out to his friends at
four dollars per barrel ; and as my family eat a
good many in the course of a year, I concluded to
raise my own, Wife thought this a grand idea :
" You have a yoke cf oxen, you know my dear,"
she said ' and I am sure you could plow np that
small lot near the house, where the fig trees are
and save enough on potatoes to get new matting for
the whole house."
. ' I wasn't so sore about doing the ploughing myself,
but I calculated, and figured about thus: Ploughing,
one day, supposing I hired it done say two dol
lars ; I furnishing the oxen. One barrel potatoes
for seed, four dollars. The planting I would do my
self ; likewise the hoeing, ect. as the the weeds came
up. Total outlay six dollars. I thought I might
safely calculate on ten barrels as a crop value forty
dollars: net profit thirty four dollars ! " Gracious"!
exclaimed wife" bow much our neighbor mutt
make on bis potatoes. I declare I don't wondec now
that his wife has got a new set cf furniture in ber
gaest chamber. It seems to me as though potato
raising would be a better business than going to that
stupid old office every day. Try a good big crop,
wbv don't von T" I was half temDted to do to. but
concluded I'd commence small.
Aly oxen were, cf course, mauka," as my boy
'said: and so I told bim to eet a native to eo after
them. When I got home at night there were the oxen,
and there was the native waiting fur bis pay. Two
dollars te said was M pono," and I paid bim. The
oxen we turned into "the pasture" and though
they were tied together, they managed in the night
to climb over a stone wall into my neighbor's
sugarcane, and when I went cut in the early morn
ing I found another native waiting to have me pay
the " fine;" this took two dollars more, and at break
fast, when wife mentioned that she "guessed " she
would write to Afong and Aehuck to send up the mat
ting, I toll ber not to get more than twenty-eight dol
lars worth, as that was all the " profits" would
amount to. I thought I would try ploughing my.
elf first ; so I toll my boy to bring along the yoke
and we would hitch up.
Those oxen hadn't been used very lately, or else
the sugarcane they had eat disagreed with them : for,
they wouldn't stand still long enough for me to get
the yoke fastened to both. One cf them submitted
quietly enough to having the yoke-bow fastened,
but then the other darted away and left me holding
np the other half of the yoke.
My boy seemed to think it was a good joke; at any
rate he laughed, and when I dropped the yoke to
kick him,, away went bipi Xo. 2, making an im
mense clattering with the half fastened yoke.

native come and doThe ploughing. "
When I got home apin, wife reported that the

My Lty u!J be thought thty had go.e to th

sail wife, " I wish some cf the men who run ft have
'a drink' every morning bad to wa'.k four tvilea for
it ; they woalla't spend so saacb raoaty for 'bitters'
as tbey do.
I quite agreed with btr, and Mat for the tia.
I came bene early that afternoon, oa yarpoee to try

Wife says that I didn't plough more than fife tula

the plow point caught a big stone. The sudden rk

they stopped. We drove them out, turned tbeploegh

dous rate. I can't say much for 'le farrow we left
behind us, for roost cf the lime lU plough wee run

The next trip acroes we did veryttt!1, tut" then
one of the oxen laid down. I Mt like doiag the
tame ; so I concluded that the land was ploughed
ensegb. Taraetlve charged two dollars for plough
log, wWlok l fall, congratulating NyseAl that that
was the last caah expenditure, I having already
bought the potatoes. ,
That night, as we listened to the rain, wecongrat
ulated ourselves on "a gool soaking" being just
the thing to prepare the groond lor oar crop. I
staid borne the next Jay, ausd planted the potator.
It drizzled some aud the ground was very etkky j
aud I must confess that while scraping the mud off
my boots before going to my late dinner I con
eluded that if I should charge what I would call de
cent wagno for that diy's work, 1 should dtblt the
account with tea dollars at least. After dinner,
however, I felt better, and contemplated the new
mailing, which had arrived during the day, and
thought It well worth the few dollars over our eolU
mate which the bill called for.
Business called me down to Kauai for a week after
planting, and tho first thing 1 said when I got back
home. was. " Gracious ! how the weeds have grown!"
They bad and no mistake. The ground was regu
larly carpeted with young plants of the castor bean !
Where tho seed came from, no ours knows. To my
certain knowledge not a castor oil plant has bwn
seen near us for some years ( but there was the
ploughed land, and there was " millions In It."
I spent a day hoeing that land. My boy aud I
did at least, and I am iur that be must have cut off
the tender potatoe sprouts very often for with all

I felt quite proud to think bad dn It all.
Another day's hoeing cleared the field again cf all
weeds ; and then wife and I went to Honolulu for a
couple of weeks. W tulght have staid longer, but
my little boy wrote bis toother the following note.

The Hawaiian Treaty.
Ills slogular Uutl Uooffr as siioiijdi dud It so
difficult to decldo whether our country shall meet
the proportion ot King Kalakaua lor luUeclproclly
treaty, with a frank answer and atsoiXj That IMartri
King came over tho ocean to see ui,Vnd ba was
welcomed and treated kindly and gem-rowdy. Jt

although the bead of only a small nation, bo pos
sessed tbo feelings and tone of a gentleman and an
educated Intellect He sent bis Mlnltors to nego

dom, loavlng behind bim pleasant memories In tl
minds of all thosowbo met bim. His liltl mon
archy uoeds the friendship of our Uepubllo, bis
subjects needtb benefits of our matket, and It
was that tney tntgui obtain sucn inarki'i on reci
procal term that the treaty was negotiated. But,
somehow, Us confirmation bangs fire in congress.
-We can scarcely think that the opinion or Mr. David
Wells, who decided ngatust th treaty nnon the
grounds of revenue, ought to weigh wltb C6ngrM
rnore than ait toe oiuer great interests inroivod In
this treaty, and Its confirmation. Confirming It wo
tako the little Island Kingdom into our family, If

forth on good terms with great Britain no morn
wars, no more blockade runners, or difficulties
which may not be satisfactorily settled by arbitra
tion, that mode ot adjustment ao much cheaper and
better and more aatlafactory than wars and all their
terrible consequences. But, we are not certain, of
such continued and desirable peace. Incasnof
war wltb Great Britain, we tbonld desire and need
intimate relations wltb the little Hawaiian Kingdom
because of its position out there In tho broad

Melbourne, it is not to our inlrest that the Handwlch
Iitlanes should rest In any mice rial uly as to Us
future relations. Naturally we have lb first claim.
I'ut we do not desire to annex tho little Kingdom.
We do desire that It shall not be annexed or con
querod br England or any other power. All th
oencuia ucnrauio irum it run u acurea by UiO
confirmation of the treaty, which gives a portion
of her people a market, which la sorely needed
since thdr former dependence, the whaling busl-
nets, has so nearly deserted thern.
Tho opinion of our naval and military officers
agr" on this queUon, and bare given expression
tt their views. They look upon tho question as
military men, not as merchants or traders oi u
single city or State. The fleets of tho Treaty
might bear uiMaflvantageoiiAly upon tho buslne
of a few of our people; while il would be benefi
cial to others, opening np or enlarging trado that
cannot flourUh under a blgn tariff. But tha great
est benefit would b one of national character.
The .Sandwich Islands are as an outljlng redoubt,
the United KtaUs being the main fortress, la th
poftesHlon of an enemy, It could be made to do us
an Immense amount of Injury, Our policy would
seem to be not to desire annexation, but to bind
the Government and peoplo , Hawaii to us by
reciprocal interests and alliances of trade and
commerce which would effectually bar out any
and every other nation from dangerous relation
with that kingdom.
The New York Herald rives as one of Its reason.
why the treaty ahould be approved br comrreaa.
that it would prove s popular one wltb tho oeonln
of this side of the continent, und so would tend
toward strengthening our attachment to th I'nlon.
It thinks that the great barrbr of th Horsy
Mountains would make comparatively easy for
us to assert and maintain our Indeprndenco wltb
tho a-HUtaace of a foreign power. Th view, art
far as tha writer and that Journal may bo consider
ed, is patriotic and correct. But we can atsur
tho lhrald, and the country, that tber Is not a
.State in the American Union more attschod to It,
and leas inclined to dir separation from It, than
California. And w may add, th othr Pacitlo
States and Territories. On cf tho atrwgett
reasons why wo desire th confirmation otMh
treaty is, that It would most certainly strengthen
the t nlon, while conferring a reciprocal benefit
upon KaUkaua's subjects.
