SATURDAY. JANUARY 13.
The great need of these istind is roj ulatton
With an incomparable climate, and with an area;
of cultivable soil capable of euf portiog a pojm-'
lation of a mitliun souls, tre have odIj a little
more than half a hundred thousand. Of coar?e
it is rery evident that under these circumstance
nothing like a thorough development of the re
sources ol the country can be expected. With
out the men to till the soil the boon of recipro
city, for which we have striven for so many
jears, will in the end prove of but meagre re
sults, cold r,a red with what it miht be if we had
the people wherewith to improve our grand op
portunity. II jw shall we get the needed popula
tion? should now be the all-important question
with Hawaiian statesmen. And we are glad to
think that in this view we are at one with those
who are at the head of affairs ; that the rein of
the pessimists is at an end, and that an honest
and earnest attempt will be made to procure the
immigration that we need.
Unquestionably there are thousands of " men
with email means aod families " in Europe and
America who, if they could be communicated
with, would gladly avail themselves of the op
portunities for the comparatively speedy acquisi
tion of independence and competency which
would be offered them in these islands. We
know of estates the proprietors of which stand
ready to-day to give to actual settlers alternate
sections of fifty acres of land, rent free for five
years, with the privilege of timber for fencing,
etc. We know of others who offer free rental of
good sugar land, adjacent to a mill, for a term of
years, together with the means for cultivation
and support for a man and family, for half the
crop raised. Better terms than these could not
certainly be asked or expected. A few families
of the right sort once here and fairly at work,
with the handsome prospects that would open up
before them, and they themselves would prove
the best of immigration agents by the reports
tbey would send back to their old homes.
The circular issued last week by the Board of
Immigration, which we subjoin, is the initial
step in the right direction, aod indicates quite
plainly that the slumber in which for years that
body has been wrapped is at last broken. The
Board is awake and alive to the duties which
properly belong to it, and Bees the possibilities of
usefulness that it may accomplish. We trust
that those to whom the circular is addressed will
recognize the spirit of enterprise with which it
is inspired, and promptly respond with the infor
mation sought, as well as by giving any addi
tional hints of value to the Board which may
occur to them.
Hosolclv, Jasdart 3, 1877.
Sir, The Board of Immigration would be pleased
to know if, on any of the estates of which you may
be agents or owners, on which sugar, coffee, rice, or
wool or other products are raised, any facilities will
be off red to agriculturists who may be induced to
immigrate to these islands with families? If you
can ortr sot lands to be cultivated on shares, or
wage?, or any flocks or herds to be tended on shares
or wages? will vou kind! advise the Board of the
locality, the kind of produce to be rained, the share
or wages to be given to the cultivator ; also what
amount of capital, if any, would be necessary ? If
you have or can prepare a prospectus of the proposed
business with the advantages likely to accrue to the
immigrant, will you furnish the Board with a another
of them' for distribution abroad through the agency
of II. II. M's. Consuls? Would you be willing to
reimburse the Board fur any advances made to such
immigrants as might be induced to come here and
accept your proposals ?
The Board of Immigration is in hopes by giving
publicity to the advantages now enjoyed by agricul
turists in this country to. induce the immigration of
men -with small means 'and families from various
countries, thus adding to the population, more of an
intelligent class of agriculturists whose presence will
improve the country socially, and add to the value
of estates by creating a demand for lands fit for till
age or pasture.
It has been suggested to the Board, . that in Ger
many and other countries there are agricultural
schools, some of the graduates of which oJght be in-
ddeed-to eome to this eountry if certain of employ,
ment at moderate wages, for one or two years, thus
furnishing a class of men who would grow into over
seers and managers of estates, or farmers on their
own account, and supplying a want which will grow
greater as the class of common laborers increases. If
any such can be induced to come, will you find em
ployment for any, for how many and at what wages ?
In view of the interests of this country and of all
who are owners or cultivators of the soil, or engaged
in raising sheep or cattle,'' the Hoard hopes it will
have your co-operation, and that you will be able to
offer some inducements to - Intending immigrants.
The Department of Foreign Affairs, through the
Consuls and Representatives of the Government
abroad, will assist the Board in its endeavor to in
duce immigration and render such assistance to
worthy immigrants as the means at the disposal of
the Board will admit. , -
By "giving an early ' and careful ' consideration to
this circular and communicating with either of the
Committee in person or by letter, .
You will oblige,

Osi&u. the islands except Oahu, goYenunenf
provides travelling physicians, who are suppose ji
to attend upon the indigent sick among the
native population, and for which they are paid. a
fair stipend. The existence on this island of a
public hospital, to which the natives may bave
ready access for treatment and advice, wouldj it
was thought, preclude the necessity of a similar
physician here. This does not however prove to
be the case, lor although the prejudice which
once existed in the minds of the natives against
going to the Qaeen'B Hospital has to a great ex
tent been dissipated, it is still evident that mul
titudes neglect or refuse to avail themselves of its
privileges. Honolulu being tbo centre of attrac
tion from all parts of the group, it follows that
we have coostautlj bere a large gathering of die
native people. Now it is very evident that but
few among these are able to pay for the services
of a foreign physician, and so when they become
sick, the majority " take the chances " without
a physician, while a few are the victims of native
kahunas or quacks. The result is sad to contemvl
nl.i. 1 C- h ttw Tpnnrt nf Mr. J. II. Brnwn
Honolulu agent of the Board of Health (which
we append) it appears that oat of a total of 214
deaths of natives during the past nine months,
135, or nearly 63 per cent, are reported as having
received no medical attendance whatever. Of
course we can only surmise how many of this
sixty-three per cent, might bave been saved to
their families and to the country ; but we are
met with the question : Are we doing our duty to
this people when , we allow such a state of things
to continue without an effort at reform? We
are however aware that the subject is a somewhat
difficult one to handle ; but we bave confidence
that it will not fail to be duly and carefully con
sidered by the Board of Health, under the Presi
dency of the Minister of the Interior.

Agent Board of Health.
Spots, da you say dark and unseemly spots?
And, lot us ask, who can say that be is free
from spots? The bright star of our system, the
fountain of life and light, the sun himself is
not free from spots. Every individual character,
every nation, however exalted and intelligent,
has had and will continue to have its spots. To
bide is not to cure them; what we have to do
as Christains is to prevent or ameliorate them, so
far as in our power. The surgical operation of
cutting out does not always cure the sore, but
not infrequently kills the patient. Public opin
ion is often a better cure than the severest law,
and sometimes it is the wiser plan to influence
public opinion to action and make the best of an
evil, rather than to enforce harsh laws which
bave the effect not to eradicate but rather to
drive the evil into dark corners, with consequent
accumulated evils and eventually crimes.
We are led to these reflections in view of the
apparently large increase of late years in the
number of births of illegitmato children in these
islands children that have mothers, but whose
infant lips will never learn to lisp the name of
father. This is a well-known fact ; and if a
false delicacy should admonish us to keep silence
upon a subject that may reveal a dark spot in
the character of Hawaii nei, we prefer to listen
to the dictates of humanity and 6peak the truth.
It is not our purpose to particularly investigate
the causes which have led to this state of things,
although one of the most obvious of causes will
be found in the reckless importation of several
thousand male immigrants in a country where the
female sex is already in a most unnatural and
dangerous minority. But we may say, just
here, that the fact of the large increase in illegi
timate births, though abstractly an evil carries
nevertheless a redeeming consideration, inas
much as it indicates an advance in the feelings
of humanity. The Burplus in the present number
of fatherless children is balanced by so many
less cases of abortion and infanticide murders
of. the innocents. . Any one who has resided
twenty-five or thirty years in these islands must
be aware of the fact that the crimes which we
have named were fearfully prevalent among the
people, a result, in most cases, of the then strin
gent and inhuman laws in this particular. Since
the repeal !of these laws, many thousands of in
fants bave been suffered to live, and hence in a
great degree the present apparent large increase
of illegitimate births.
Nature is always true to herself. Our native
females, reared in the soft climate of these tropic
isles, have in their hearts the Same maternal in
stincts as the women of other races and other,
climes, alike with the lioness or tigress. In
fanticide amongst the Uawaiians was more
the reeult of fear than of other causes. Abor
tion and infanticide are crimes so unnatural
and so opposed to the feelings of a simple and
kind-hearted 'people' like the Uawaiians, that,
the fear of the law removed, it is not a matter
for surprise that to-day they are rare, and are
confined rather to the rich and the outwardly
respectable. It is quite probable that the crimes
of infanticide in almost any populous city of
enlightened and Cbristainized Europe or America
' j - i j . i
exceed; in number during a single Tear, tbe
number of illegitimate births that happen oq
tlipRA I(l&ndfl- Y
We are far from desiring to apologize for
illegitimacy ; but rather that, vrc Bay, than in
fanticide, which means bo many women made
mothers vrho fall so below humanity that a
blush of shame (if euch ia left) must suffuse
their cheeks to look in the eyes of the lowest
animal suckling its young. Wo to a nation
when its women fall so low.
We hare deemed tbe present an opportune
moment to introduce this subject, when the new
and praiseworthy societies for hoola lahui pre
servation' of the people are initiating their
measures. And further, to make an appeal in
the cause of humanity to those whose gentle
hearts are ever open to appeals on behalf of the
unhappy and unfortunate; and who, let us ask,
are more unfortunate than those little waifs of
humanity whom a bard fate has thrown upon
the world a hard world, at the best. We
appeal on behalf of these unfortunate little waifs
of Hawaii nei, to the generous-hearted Christian
ladies of the land ; to those mothers, around
whoso knees the happy faces of their own little
ones nestled so cosily but recently on tbe festal
ere of Christmas we ask these to take into their
kind consideration the fate of these little unfor
tunates. We suggest no plan ; we advise no
course to pursue ; we leave the fate of the father
less ones for whom we plead in the hands of
those wish to earn the blessing of Him who
fent about doing good, and who said 44 Blessed
are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy."
The agent of the . Board of Health and tbe
Deputy Marshal, on account of tbe nature of
their official duties, are both in a position to give
information on tbe subject under discussion, to
inquirers who may be charitably disposed. There
is room here for a good work in saving hundreds
perhaps thousands of lives of those who may
thus grow up to become useful members of
society. . .
New Govebsor. HVe note with pleasure the
appointment of Mr. John Tvlward Bash, late a clerk
ia the Department of tbe Interior, to be Governor of
tbe Island of Kanai. Mr. Bash is a Hawaiian of
foreign extraction, whose industry, respectability
aud probity of character does honor to tbe class to
which he belongs; and in selecting him for promo
tion His Majesty has done a good deed. Mr. Bash is
young, full of enterprise and of ideas for tbe good of
his countrymen, and we anticipate for biro a oareer
of usefulness in his new spbere. '

X CARD. v 1
The schooner Kamaile, commanded by Captain Kiblin
left Koloa on the 2il of January, aad arrived in Honolulu ci
Sunday the 7lh lost., and we the uoderaifned passengers en
said schooner daring- the voyage referred to, take great pleas-'
are in stating that the said schooner was abundantly supplied i
with provisions ol every description and of excellent quality,
and that the service and attention waa in every way and re
spect pleaaiog and highly satisfactory. As an evidence there
of, we have many of as engaged passage on the same vessel to(
return to Koloa, and moat cheerfully recommend all those1.
t raveling that way to take paaaage on the Kamaile, as her ac
commodations and the conduct of her officers render the voy
age as pleasant as the nature of the navigation will admit.
We publish this card as a matter of justice, learniog that'
certain mendacious statements have been made lending to
injure the justly-earned popularity cf the schooner Kamaile, i
her officers and owners.

Ma. Editok : Tie late heavy rains hive I hcpe
sufficiently demonstrated to cur new, and let us
hope, efficient road supervisor the necessity to pay
sotne attention to the iicwa'ks, and to the crossings
of the streets. A f'.'w flat coral stones laid down at
the crossings woa'J permit foot passengers to cross
from one stree t to another dryihod, and there can be
no doubt that tbe roal supervisor has sufficient re
sources to make the sidewalks passable, even daring
the most rainy days. As it is. traveling; through
the mai is very annoying especially to ladies.
Respectfully yours, Kaxaai.ta.
Mb, Eorroa : Permit me a small space to call yoor
attention to a very bad and not less dangeroas prac
tice prevailing ia the city cf Honolulu, which ought
to be abated. I do cot knew if ia the absence cf a
municipal government any body exists that has
power to enact any laws in regard to safety cf life
and limbs, but perhaps the Marshal, or the Privy
Council, cr the Minister cf the Interior, who issues
all licenses, may have such power. 1 refer to the
practice cf express wagons and carriages traversing
the streets cf Honolulu daring the absence cf moon
light and on very dark nights, especially on late ar
rivals of the Kihvea, at a rapid rate. Tbe softness
of the road material very often makes tbe approach
of a carriage inaudible till the horse's bead is near
your shoulders. Carriage drivers should be com
pelled to have lanterns on their carriages cn a dark
