The following is the account which Mr. de
Varigny gives in hia book of Lis call to the
Ministry. - . '
The Prince Kamebameha, now become Kameha-'
meha V., was a partisan of progress, liberal by
conviction, absolute by the traditions of his. family
and his own character. Up to that day he . had
appeared to have a preference for the American
party, which placed great hopes upon his advance
ment. A colleague of Mr. Wyllie for many years,
he bad often maintained and uttered opinions at
variabce with those of the Minister for Foreign
Affairs, whose profuse verbosity and obstinacy he
bore as they said, with impatience. Having become
King, however, he did not hesitate to make an ap
peal to Mr. W.'s experience and patriotism, and
immediately tcok him as a confidant of his prospects
of reform and plans for the future. He communi
cated to him his doubts, and discussed with him
alone, at first, the choice of Ministers which be pro
posed to make, and the plans which he proposed to
' Without, an excited opinion canvassed with
inquietude what the new King was going to do. The
American party, which was moat numerous, strong
est, and most ambitious, counted strongly upon
their intimacies with the Prince. Some of the
boldest of them predicted loudly the full of Mr.
Wyllie and all of them believed that the future
Ministry would be recruited exclusively from among
their candidates. Numerous lists were circulated
from hand to hand, which reflected their expecta
tions and their wishes.
"The King consecrated the first four days of
November to taking counsel with Mr. Wyllie, and
deciding in the silence of his own closet, the choice
of bis Ministers. The 5th of November Mr. Wyllie
came to my office, and announced to me that he had
the King's commands to offer to me the situation of
Minister of Finance. The proposition did not take
me entirely by surprise, but, taking into considera
tion the general opinion which designated the chiefs
of the' American party as those who would be
called to power, I was astonished at an offer which
seemed to indicate oa the part of the King, tenden
cies fo opposite to those which were imputed to him.
"No one was ignorant that 'I was. if not an
adversary of the American party, at least, a firm
and declared advocate of the independence of the
kingdom. As a Frenchman I had no political sym
pathies with the Americans nor with the Protestant
Missionaries. I replied to Mr. Wyllie by asking of
him a list of the new Ministry, which he communi
cated to me immediately. . I re
quested twenty-four hours to reflect, promising him
a reply by the next morning; to which he only re-
f aired of me, that in case of acceptance or refusal,
should consider myself bound in honor not to
divulge the combination which had been submitted
" I passed the day of the 6th and the morning of
the Cth in weighing deliberately the offer which had
been made to me, and in taking an exact account of
the state of things and parties. My most serious
thought was. not to allow myself to be drawn by
personal ambition into accepting the oSSce, without
the conviction that I could bring to the King serious
assistance, and render the country services which
would justify his confidence. -
Once before in 1858, 1 had, after mature reflec
tion, refused a similar offer from Kamehameha IV.
This refusal reassured my conscience somewhat; it
didn't appear to me that I was yielding in 1863,
to personal consideration which I had been able to
resist five years before. I had acquired more ex
perience, more knowledge of the country, I had
labored a good deal, learned something, and digested
my ideas. Confidence had come with the trial of
my strength and the responsibility of action. For
many years, I bad employed the considerable leisure
which my duties in the consulate left me, in study
ing the country, especially from a commercial and
political stand point; I had in my mind a well
arranged plan of reforms which I shall set forth by
and bye. The task which appeared to me unpleas
ant and impossible in 1858, immediately after the
conclusion of a treaty which provoked in the Privy
Council and in the publio mind, a violent hostility
against France, appeared to me easy, or at least
possible in 1863. The principal obstacle that I saw
was the anger which the entry of a Frenchman into
the Council would raise. I hoped to get the better
of that, and circumstances favoring me I succeeded."
SATURDAY. UF.CV.MBEU 1.
' Ox the evening of the 28th ult. His Kxcel
c lency the Minister of Foreign A flairs gave a
dinner jarty at his residence in the valley, iu
honor of the Chancellor of the Kingdom on his
return from the oiisdion to Washington. His
Majesty the King was present, and among the
guests were His Kijal Highness Prince Leleio
hoku ; the Representatives of the United States,
England arid France ; the Minitsters of Finance
and the Interior and the Attorney (Jeneral ; the
Justices ol tho Supreme Court ; the Governor of
Oahu ; the Hons. C. K. Biehop and II. A. P.
Carter, and Mons. Pcrnet of the French Lega
tion, and others.
Twf.nty-oxk thousand dollars was the amount,
in hard cash, which tho last echelon of the Legis
lature cost the country; and in return for this
very respectable outlay we have a number of
amendments to existing laws and new( statutes,
wiso'and otherwise, among which it is difficult
to find anything like the money's worth. Hut
among such a mass of law-making as the session
produced it would be strange indeed if, even
without Ministerial guidance, something valuable
should not be evolved. And so we find that
among the laws enacted Is one entitled 'An Act
to aid in the development of the resources of the
Kingdom,' approved by the King on the 19th
of September, which, if properly carried out by
the Ministry, wouM prove of immenee value to
the country. In fact, it may be considered as
the one redeeming feature of the Beet-ion, as it is
the only instance afforded of legislation looking
to the material progress of the country. Tt did
not originate with the Ministry; which fact may
possibly constitute the reason why, during the
more than two months which have elapsed since
it received the executive sanction, it has not been
acted upon. At the time of its passage it gave
universal satisfaction, as holding out the hope of
substantial results. Its whole tenor breathes
a spirit of enterprise, public improvement and
advance, words of which Hawaiian Ministers
appear to have a dread, inasmuch as they are the
last to recognize the possible good to result from
any innovation upon the old established order of
things. The spirit of their course is in sympathy
with the language of Tennyson's Northern
" But inmmun 'ull come ater mei mayhap, wi 'is kittle o'
Huzzin' an malzin' the blessed Aealda w? the divil's o&o
Gin I mun doy, I mun doy, an' loile they says is street,
But gin I mun doy, I mun doy, for I couldn abcar to see It."
Section 1 of the Act provides that the King in
Privy Council shall appoint a commission, con
sisting of three suitable persons, &c. Are Minis
ters unable to find three suitable persons whom
they could recommend to Ilia Majesty as com
missioners for the purpose indicated? Are we so
very poor in intellectual material? Meantime
most the country wait, and improvements be
deferred until somebody from abroad shall do us
the honor of accepting the office? There are
plenty of suitable men at hand, who are iden
tified with Hawaii nei, and interested iu the
progress of tho country, and whose past experi
ence would under them just tho persons to per
form the required duty. Tho value cannot be
over-estimated which would attach to their
thorough and carefully prepared reports of the
quantity of arable land in each district ; the
availability of water for irrigation or for running
machinery; roads, landings, etc. At present,
any ono coming from abroad with an intention of
investing their capital in agriculture and making
a home here, can get no information on the sub
jects wo have enumerated at the Government
House, the very place of all places where one
would expect to be enlightened. The Ministers
should be prepared to put their finger at once
upon a record of all tho needed particulars of
any one district, as to area, soil, water, wood,
roads and harbors. But of all theee, the occu
pants of Aliiolani House are, and are likely to
remain, in blissful ignorance, simply because
they will not put into operation the law which
provides for obtaining the requisite information.
Was there ever a people so patient as the people
of Hawaii? And we suppose they must continue
to wait, while the Ministry are pondering, and
tying and untying red tape all day and a part of
tho night, getting (vide de Varigny) only five
hours Bleep out of tho twenty -four, "owing to
their arduous labors and deep deliberations on
There was quite a large gathering of natives at
the Kawaiahao Church on Tuesday morning, tho
28th inst., by invitation of the King, who has
been recently stirring up the people to form a
Female Benevolent Society, for the general pur
pose of aiding the sick and destitute, as well as
looking after the welfare of orphan children.
The following is a translation of tho principal
portions of His Majesty's address :
My friends : I have invited you here on
this anniversary of the recognition of our national
independence, to say a few words on this subject
of our independence, to enquire into the causes
of the decrease of the people, and to consider the
means of arresting that decrease. On the 28th
of November, 1843, now over thirty years ago,
the governments of Great Britain and France
formally recognized our independence, whereby
we were admitted into the family of nations of
tho earth. We came in as a child, a ward of
the great nations. To their liberality and gen
erosity we owe our independence and the bless
ings flowing therefrom, which we may to-day
congratulate ourselves on possessing.
" On previous anniversaries of this day, we
have been accustomed to devote the time to re
joicings, but now let ub for a moment seriously
consider the 6tate of our nation.
In the year 1843, the nation numbered not
far from 100,000 souls. How many do we num
ber to-day ? When the census shall be taken in
1878, it will probably be found, after the lapse
of 35 years, that we are less than 60,000, show
ing that during these few years there have been
40,000 more deaths than birtbs. That is at the
rate of over 1,000 a year decrease. These figures
do not lie. They show very plainly that we as a
nation are on the path to extinction, and that at
the present rate of decrease but sixty more years
will be required to see the end. Where then
will be our race, and what becomes of the Inde
pendence Day of which we are now so proud ?
It would seem as if our house is built on the
sand, upon which the floods of destruction have
come and are washing away oar foundations, so
that the structure must soon' fall.. Can we not
turn aside this stream of death and save the na
tion ? It is folly for us to take pride in our posi
tion as an independent government, if we are
compelled to acknowledge to ourselves, and to
the great nations of the earth, our inability to
help ourselves. While in front we present a de
lusive show of life, behind is death and destruc
tion. Nor is it right to say that God is destroy
ing the people on account of their sins. Let us
not thus presumptuously accuse Him of being
If we will but U6e our own eyes, we ehall j
not fail to perceive the cause of the decrease of j
the people. There are numerous diseases among
them, that were unknown in former time, of the
prupcr treatment of which our reoplc arc ignor
ant, both in regard to the care of grown people
and ot new-born infanta. Hence the great ma
jority of the dea;hs that ocirur. The most of
these new diseases are fevers, and there are a
great many varieties of fevers. The destructive
venereal disease also arpears in various forms,
and physicians are Mtiefied that it results often
Some are heard to say that the people are
decreasing because of the influence of the ancient
gods of the land, and other similar nonsense.
The ancient gLi knew nothing about the dis
eases that now prevail, for they were all dead
before these new diseases arrived. Now if these
'diseases are from abrmd, the only way in which
we can successfully treat them is to take the ad
vice of the people of the country from which the
diseases come.' They give us the advice in brief
" Take care of your bodies." We Hawaiians
are an observing and imitative race in most
things ; when will we learn to imitate the for
eigners in this particular? There is an ancient
proverb of Hawaii nei to this effect : " Take
care of the body, for we know this life is a
pleasant one, warm and comfortable ; the future
world is cold and uncertain.
Therefore, my friends, let us devote this day
to a serious consideration of the decadence of our
nation ; let us initiate a measure which shall
make the day in our memories as the beginning
of a real work for the recuperation of the people,
that our independence may indeed be perpetu
ated. Let this be the beginning of a new era in
our history, wherein we shall show to the. world
that we are earnestly and intelligently using all
proper means lor the increase of our race."
The address was listened to with deep atten
tion by tbe audience, and made a marked impres
sion. At its conclusion, a Hawaiian Female
Benevolent Society was organized, with tbe fol
lowing officers : President, tho Princess Like
like Cleghorn ; Secretary, Miss E. Nihi ; Treas
urer, Miss Mary Parker. A future meeting was
notified, at which a permanent organization and
plan of operations will be perfected.
In the Hawaiian Gazette of a few weeks since,
appeared an editorial headed Evolution," the
writer of which without tbe temerity to deny the
truth of Christianity, would still show us that he
is bold enough to assert a belief in a theory which
" may appear to be inconsistent with the Biblical
version of the creation of tbe animal kingdom."
He acknowledges that the creation of Adam de
novo out of dust, and of Eve out of one of his ribs,
according to the Book of Genesis, is inconsistent
with the theory he would uphold ; that the age of
the world according to Scripture, and its age ac
cording to Science, are wholly discrepant, and
that the discrepancy bears heavily against the
truth of those portions of the Bible, at least, from
which the inference relating to time is derived ;
and yet he would with tbe most manifest incon
sistency assert tbe existence of harmony between
the Evolution hypothesis and a Christianity that
would mean nothing except as based upon the
truth of the Biblical history of creation. " If ye
believe not Moses and all the Prophets, neither
will ye believe though one should be raised from
the dead." And bow can an expressed disbelief
in them be consistent with a belief in Christ,
whose coming was foretold by tho Prophets, and
to whom Christ himself refers in no other terms
than would indicate them as truthful Messengers
from God ?
The Evolution hypothesis gives us no reason to
believe in tbe scheme of salvation through a
Mediator and Redeemer ; but, on the contrary,
the immutable law which it recognizes as pervad
ing the Universe precludes the possibility of mira
cle, upon which the authenticity of the Bible en
tirely depends. Appeal to miracle was the testi
mony with which Christ sought to impress tbe
human mind with the reality of his divine origin
and mission ; and, if we deny one belief tbe other
must of neceesity fall with it.
It is perhaps, here, relevant to say, that the
most distinguished assertors of the evolution hy
pothesis who have made their names heard in
every land, such as Herbert Spencer, and Huxley,
and Tyndall, and a host of others, make not the
least pretence to a belief in its compatibility with
tbe doctrines of revealed religion. Revelation
tells us that man in the beginning waB created
upright and in tbe image of his Maker; and that
instead of proceeding onward and upward from
this fair and high beginning, 'he sinned and be
came degraded and loBt, and hence it was neces
sary for bis recovery and restoration from his lost
estate, that a, second dispensation be granted to
him, wherein it was the special work of the
" Second Adam " that " happier man " to
restore and " regain tbe blissful seat " of tbe
The theory of development gives us so different
an idea of the Creation as to make it, in the
usually accepted sense of the term, no creation at
all, accounting for difference in structure by no
immediate fiat of the Almighty, but by accidental
subjection to the influence of never varying laws.
As enunciated by the abettors of this doctrine,
we have the following concise summary of their
views, in regard to the process concerned, from
the pen of Dr. Draper :
Starting from a solitary cell, development
takes place, and, according as extraneous forces
may be brought. into action, variable in tbeir na
ture, and differing in their intensity, the resulting
organism will differ. If such language may be
used, the aim of Nature is to reach a certain Meal
model or archetype. As the passage toward this
ideal model is more or less perfectly accomplished,
form after form, in varied succession, arises. Tbe
original substratum or material is in every instance
alike ; for it matters not what may be the class of
animals or plants, the primordial germ, as far as
investigation has gone, is in every instance the
same : The microscope shows no difference, but.
on the contrary, demonstrates the identity of the
first cell, which if it passes but a little way on its
forward course, ends in the obscure cryptogamic
plant, or, if it runs forward toward reaching tbe
archetype, ends in tbe production of man. Tbe di
versity of form that is eventually presented, depends
then, not upon the constitution or aspect of the
primitive cell, but upon tbe influence of the many
surrounding agencies to which it is exposed.
Organic beings are, therefore, the
materialized embodiment of what must take place
through the action of given forces, of a given in
tensity, and under given conditions on an evolv
ing cell ; and though it may suit tbe purposes of
description to classify them into orders, general
species, or other subdivisions, it must never be
forgotten that these are artificial fictions, and have
no real foundation in nature."
Now there may not be positive atheism in
volved in this belief ; but what possible interest
is it to man to know that tbe mere existence of
a Great First Cause is not incompatible herewith,
since it gives him no guarantee that his soul is to
live after him ; but every reason te suppose
on the contrary,- that he is no more immortal than
' the beasts that perish."
To overcome the difficulty.which besets the idea
of man's immortality, we have either to accord to
each individual creature, without regard to its
position in the scale of creation, a capability of
maintaining throughout eternity, a conciousnesa
of its own personal identity, or, to admit that at
a certain stago of development, the principle was
introduced. But this would be an intervention
of Diet) too miraculous in its nature to comport
with tbe requirements of the theory, which rigidiy
excludes the operation of any influence in modify
ing development, other than those which remain
eternally the same, and by subjection to which,
under differing circumstances, individuals identi
cal in structure may be so moulded, that one may
become a tree (or a frog) and tbe other a man.
None but the most rigid defenders of an on
changeable faith, settled to its minutiae some cen
turies ago, need fear the doctrine," says the
writer of the Gazette. We may be in error, bat
esteem it a fact, that so much of that ancient
minvta of an unchangeable faith is at the present
day embodied in the teachings of the pulpit, as
would make the worship of our churches a mere
pagan farce in the eyea of that enlightenment that
has accepted tbe truth of the evolution theory.
If we believe this theory, let us cease our impioas
prayers to God to break for our sakes those laws
which were from the foundation of tbe universe,
which cannot and never will vary.
Pursuance to previous notice, a Urge conooarse of
American citizens and others assembled at the Fort
Street Church at 11 a. k.. on Thursday morning
last, to take part in the Thanksgiving services of the
day. The Rev. Dr. Damon read the Proclamation of
President Grant, recommending the Americaa peo
ple to assemble ia their places of worship and give
thanks to Almighty God for his blessings. After
eingiog by the choir, and reading the 144th Psalm,
and an eloquent prayer by Dr. Damon, the following
hymn was sung, composed for the occasion by the
Rev. D. Dole :
Prompted by our hearts, we ting
Praises to our heavenly King ;
Loving kindness tunes our voice,
In His goodness we rejoice.
Unexposed to noxious blast,
In a clime by none surpassed,
Dwellers in perennial spring
Whojhave better cause to ling f
Autumn here with Summer lives.
And its fruits delicious gives,
While no sere leaf marks iu away,
Nothing indicates decay.
Freedom's blessings too are ours,
Richer far than golden showers,
And the Gospel 'mid earth's strife
'Opens np eternal life.
For these gifts our lives lo blrss,
Marks of love all numberless,
We tbe glorious Giver praise
In ear most exalted lays.
The sermon which followed by the Rev. W. Frear,
from Psalm 147 : 13 "For he hath strengthened the
bars of thy gates ; he hath blessed the children with
in thee," was a very scholarly and able production,
which we hope soon to see in print
Some of oar merchants who are from New Eng
land, honored the day by closing their places of
business, and in many family circles the roast turkey
and planvpudding, or brown-bread and beans and
Indian pudding, of the good old times of father
land, was duly enjoyed.

Ir will b remembered that in September last
tbe statement was made ia the papers of the
day, that the delay at M'asLicgtcn in taking the
necessary measures for carrying the lieciprocily
Treaty into effect was caused by the absence from
that city of the Hawaiian Envoy. In juttice to
Judge Allen we print the following letters, the
latter of which Conveys a high testimonial, and
is valuable as coming from undoubted authority.

DEFATt5T OF SlATI, WaJHIVQTOX,
September 8th. 1S7C.
Mr Peas Sis, I am torry to cotice that some cf
the public prints insinuate that the delay in promul
gating the Hawaiian Treaty, or rather the Pre
giJent'i Proclamation in regard to it, may be im
puted to you. In this they are quite mistaken.
Tbe delay has solely been occasioned by necessary
formalities, or rather ia part by the absence of b?V
the President and the Secretary of State from tius
city. This, certainly, yoo ceuld sot help.
Very truly yours,
(Signed) VT. Hcxrrm.
Copy of toiler received by His Excellency tit
Minister of Foreign Affin, from the Honorable A.
Uxited States Senate Chaxbcs,
Washington, Sept. 12th, 187C.
Dear Sir, I notioe that a telegram has been sent
from here stating that delay has occured in issaing
the President's Proclamation announcing to the
country that the Hawaiian Treaty is in force, on
account of the absence cf Chief Justice Allen, the
Hawaiian Minister. It is an entire mistake. The
law was signed by tbe President, Tuesday sight, the
15th ult, and the very next morning your indefati
gable Minister sent a dispatch to the Secretary of
State inclosing an Act of the Hawaiian Legislature
and the King's Proclamation. He urged immediate
action. This was his whole duty except to sign a
protocol when the Department was ready. Bat your
Minister did not rest here, but he went to the Treas
ury Department, where I met him. and then nrged
immediate issuance of the rules and regulations.
He was earnest to complete the business, and I co
operated with him, for my constituents were as ear
nest as his own. The Department of State took
time to prepare the necessary papers, and to examine
the rules and regulations of the Treasury Depart
ment These formalities, between different Depart
ments of the Government, always take time. After
Mr. Allen's earnest and intelligent support of the
treaty (and I believe he was cot absent a day during
the whole unusually hot summer), I felt indignant
that a charge so false should be made. The oppo
sition in the House was very strong, and composed
of some of the ablest men, so placed on Committees
as to make the opposition peculiarly dangerous. I
felt that a crisis was passed when the passage of the
bill was announced in that body. Mr. Allen's in
dustry and intelligence conspicuously secured the
result. In the Senate there was a strong opposition
also, more especially from the South, as they alleged
that the treaty was hostile to their local interests ;
and it required great effort to secure a vote during
the session. I had something to do with securing
the vote, and therefore speak underetandingly of the
aids to it. Mr. Allen was constantly present during
the sessions, and at night when not so engaged was
holding interviews with Senators, explaining, etc.
To me he was invaluable in the facts and figures I gain
ed from him for use in the debates.
I have therefore deemed it a duty and a pleasure
to vindicate bis good came, and testify to the ample
share he had in securing the ratification by Con
gressional legislation of the treaty, and its speedy
proclamation. Respectfully yours,
(Signed) A. A. Sargent.

Minister Foreign Affairs, II. I.
