tbe U. S. S. Lackawanna to a gentleman of this
city, dated at Mazatlan, Dec. 15, sajs : " As usual,
tbe people ber are of the ere of a revolotitm j
everybody Is armed; the rebels are just outside the
town, tbe gunboats are cruising iu the mouth ol
tbe harbor, and demands are being made, rejected,
accepted, and so on, so tbat one can hardly keep
trace of this final! fuss, events move so fast. A
bombardment is reported as momentarily expec
ted, one of tbe gunboats having come iu and, an
chored and ordered most cf the shipping out of
the line of fire. These gun-boats are u new acqui
sition by Mexico, new, of steel, powerful and fast,
iust from England. It appears tbat tbe crews
have not been paid for three months, and that tbey
are disgusted in consequence. A demand of $30.-
600 is made by tho officers to pay off tbe ships, or
they will bombard tbe town. As soon as tbe
affair is settled we are going to San Francisco,
discharge our overtime meu, reCt, and everybody
says there is nowhere else to go to but Honolulu,
which will just suit us. ' ; ,
We want a Slip!
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
Dear Sir : The subject of a slip or dry dock has
often been discussed by masters of vessels trading to
and from this port. Nearly every vessel that arrives
here needs some repairs ; and to .haul a vessel over
by the old-fashioned and absurd manner as is now
practiced besides the enormons expense is well
known to be the most injurious, as it strains masts, J
planks and every bolt in ber.yThe Government baa
gone to considerable expense tb build a slip ttptciallyt
for tbe purpose of hauling up and repairing the
Ptle, and why not make the slip somewhat substan
tial and permanent for the convenience of other ves--
sels ? )A slip of this description is all that is needed
fbrtftrSr fleet of coasting .vessels; and would, I am
confident, repay the government in six months the
expense of fitting up the slip for permanent use. - And '
as our fleet are only small vessels the power required
for hauling them up would not be so great as haul
ing up the Pele. Every port in the world (except
Honolulu) has some convenience for repairing ves
sels, even the small Island of Tahiti has a slip and
other apparatus capable of repairing vessels up to
bUU tons. Ana why should such & thriving place as
Honolulu be behind hand in such necessaries? If it
were known tbat Honolulu possessed a slip, it would
not only be an inducement for owners of vessels to

Mn. Editor: In the Advertiser of Jan. 6th,
your remarks on drunkenness prevailing fo A large
extent during the late holidays are closed by the
sentence: There can be no question that if a
portion of the energy and adroitness which have
lately been displayed id suppressing the opium
traffic were employed in ferreting out and prose
cuting the sellers and furnishers of gin, the latter
business would soon be crippled," etc
You will admit that your charge - is rather a
serious one as implying a neglect of duty in regard
to ferreting out tbe selling of illicit gin.. There is,
as you must admit, a great difference ia ferreting
out and prosecuting the sale of gin from the opium
traffic. Opium you know is declared by law a con
traband article. In fact the law goes so far as to
make even the possession or the ! se of oplam a
criminal offence. The Custom House officials are
acting as an extra aid' to the police in detectiog the
landing of opium, incited to a strict surveillance not
only by their official duties but by an extra reward.
Through the exertions of tbe Custom House officers
the police receive sometimes valuable bints that
opium, in spite of their vigilance, has been landed
and while the aose of a Custom,. House, officer be
comes expert to smell opium hidden on board of a
vessel, the noses of policeman become also expert in
smelling in the street the more powerful stink of
burning opium in close quarters, which of course
leads to arrest. Natives may drink ever so much
bad gin in their houses, but I suppose there is not a
nose in Honolulu of so fine a scent that could in tbe
street smell out the locality where bad gin disappears
in thirsty throats. And if perhaps through some
noise or hilarity the police should enter in upon a
festive board of gin consumers, what then ? they
could neither arrest the merry revellers for drinking
bad gin, nor confiscate-the gia, and aan of the
gin drinkers would be so foolish as to( know where
the gin was bought , or who purchased it, and
thumbscrews you know are out'of use. Tbat drunk
enness among natives, and drunks from liquor bare
been of late on the increase is not to be denied ;
although there were times in Honolulu, when swipe
and beer dens were licensed when drunkenness was
even more plentiful than in the days to which you
refer. 1833. A few since, years it was much faster
for the police to arrest illicit liqaor'traf&s, than it
has been of late Then there were only the whole
sale and retail dealers under surveillance, and as
the number of these were very limited, it was not a
very difficult task to watch their in and out goings-..
But since the free importation, of Chinese aad ths
establishment cf .hundreds of retail stores-all over
town and for miles around the town, the ferreting
out the selling of gin is a very difficult matter, as it
may be said that nearly every one of these Chinese
shops purchases liqsor in auction, aid either send
it to the different islands or retail it on tbe sly, and
while the police is well aware of these facta bo eoo
viction can be procured without evidence sufficient
to convict. Only a week ago, in making an arrest
and eeizure of opium, twenty-five bottles of bad gin
were also found, ready for illicit sale; the opium
was contraband and was taken, the gin was not.
Retail and wholesale dealers have been arrested and
fined, again and again. The police is well aware
that retail and wholesale dealers in liquor are not
much infringing the laws, but the last, legislature
has permitted Cbiueie'to. keep, jobbing bouses,' and
instead of facilitating the efficiency of tha police by
this means most seriously cripple the same by facili
tating tbe distribution of bad gin from those jobbing
bouses to every Chinese, Japanese and native house.
Let the government do away with the jobbing
houses and restrict the sale of liquor to wholesale,
and. retail dealers', and make v liquor a ootraband
like opium in the hands or houses of all to whom
tbe law" forbids the sale 'of liquor, and the poiic:
will soon show you, that it is as eneTgitw In
spoiling the illicit liquor traffic aa the opium
business." ' No. C7.

From M. de Vsrtgny's 18 years in UawsU
Mr. de V&xigny tells why the Chinese -were
induced to come here.
The qufstk-B which presented itself for solution
was, , therafure, how to procure for our planters a
sufficiency1 of labor at a fair price, in a country
where tbe rate of iaterest ia 12 per ccat. If I advert
again here to the rate of interest, it is because the
price of labor is ordinarily highest where money is
dear. What localities would be moat favorsbls for
us to obtain the hinds of which ' we stood In need T
Europe and America were not to be thought of.
Certainly I would have contemplated with pleasure
the arrival of European emigrants who might have
come to the islands to better their own condition as
well as ours, to make our fields to lloisom, and to
swell the ranks of the partisans cf Hawaiian Inde
pendence. ' But the warmth cf the climate, distance,
and the expense of tbe voyage were insurmountable
objections. In America the price of labor was higher
taaa a thtfislands. and they, too were iawaato
bands. Oceanica and Asia were then tba only
sources from which we could draw. I was very
strongly in favor of Oceanica, because of the similar
ity of race. To bring in immigrants of the same
race, would be profitable both to them aod to as; to
them because tbey would promptly assimilate with a
people whose langusge, traditions and mode of life
had so much in common with their .own; for as be
cause we would thus avoid the introduction of a new
element often dangerous and always embarrassing,
the absorbing of which would be very difficult.
The numerous islands of the Pacifio Ocean were
inhabited by a population little if at all civilized,
divided into tribes, always at war with each other
Famine was frequent among' them,' notwithstanding
tbe richness of the soil, and civilization was retarded
at every step by the same obstacles which it had en
countered eighty years before ia the Hawaiian Isl
ands. I dreamed that I might pursue by peaceful
means the work commenced by Kamehameha I, by
attaching little by little.these different groups to the
political statu of the archipelago, to civilize them
by labor and by commerce, to make them consider
Kamehameha V as their king, or at least as their
protector and representative among the family of
nations. I might thus serve the common cause of
progress, and whilst extending our influence draw to
us their surplus population, and send them mission
aries and school-masters of their own race; make
them appreciate the advantages of peace and preach
to them by the force of example; such was my dream,
and I could not realize any of it. But perhaps
others will realize it some day,' If the independence
of the islands is maintained and the covetousness of
the United States permits.
With the exception of Tahiti, New Caledonia,
Rltca"td some other islsnds peculiarly governed,
and very costly to France, the rest of Polynesia and
Micronesia serves as a field of battle for the Cal.no
lio, Protestant and Anglican raiseioBarks, jealous of
each other, always ready to make an international
matter of their personal griefs; these missionaries,
op to this'tlme, have obtained very email results, if
tbe efforts and the amounts of the money expended
by their several churches shall be taken into consid
eration. . f.; 1 . .
I have often asked myself In presence of the facts
which I could vouch for with certainty, whether this
fury of propagandi8tn had not its origin in sectarian
hostility, rather than in the desire to do good. I do '
not, indeed, doubt the personal devotion of the mis
sionaries, and I am now speaking of those who direct
them rather than of themselves. I have too often
unhappily seen examples of tbe sad consequences
which this zeal for proselytiam, has proluoed, not to
speak my whole thought, even at the risk of wound,
ing the' susceptibilities of those' whom I profoundly
respect. From Cochin China, to New Caledonia,
from Ihe New Hebrides to (he Hawaiian tslandr, It
is sufficient tbat one missionary should put his foot
on any one island, and the rival seats immediately
send forth their missionaries. What is the result
among the catives I Almost everywhere, hypocrisy,
ffen Indifference. ' Tbey teTIe've the' missionaries
when they attack one another, and they do not be
lieve them when they proclaim themselves the only
possessors of the truth. Throughout Polynesia and
Micros seia, the kanaka believes 'the, Cat bolls 1'rleat I
when h aanooaoes that the Protestant Minister ia a
wolf in sheep's clothing, and he likewise believes
the Protestant when he proclaims that the Catholio
is an idolator, and his form of worship very nearly
approaching to paganism.
It is invariably thus that the, struggle commences,
when soma day, a shipof-wsr arrives'aod the com
mander, as is natural, takes sides with his country
men, and an armed force is j ut at the service of a
religious cause. Some tribe in obedience to the in
stigation of foreigners, has badly received the mis
sionaries or has driven them away; artillery ' is
brought to bear upon them, and to obtain satisfac
tion for wrongs too often real, the villages are burnt
and the inhabitants are killed ; and thus tbey sow
tbe seed cf hatred against a civilization which steks
to convince ly force. 1
I exaggerate nothing ; tbe facta are so patent that
a blind man may see them. Whilst I writ even,
China is ordering the expulsion of all missionaries
from her borders, and blood will aj ajrj be shed on'
the hanks of the Yang-tse-Kiang in the name of the
God of peace and charity. The connection of these
reflections with the subject which , out author has
ander treatment at the moment, is not very obvious;
but still we thought tbey wouli interest our resders.

It was exactly to this same China, tbat it was
necessary for us to look for the laborers without
whom our plantations must remain uncultivated.
For centuries, Asia Las had tbe privilege of furnish
ing laborers for the entire world. In our own time,
it is Asia, which in the person er' the Chinese has
made the working of the Chincha Guano Islands
possible.' The Chinese hare constructed the Great
Pacifio Rail Road which binds New York to San
Francisco'. ladia bss furnished its Uill-eooliea to
the Isthmus of Pannms. Tbe Placers of California
are filled with Chinamen and already in spite of un
just legislation, they are flowing on towards New
York and the Eastern States. It is in vain, that
Europe and America, who have opened the porta of
I China at tbe cannon's month to obtain an entrance
for their- merchants, their musionarlet ' and their
productions, should by Strang inconsistency refase
