SMpwreck witli loss of Life.
It is seldom that n disasters bappeu t our
island wesaels, and still more rare that lives are
lost in the service ; so thai the sad affair of the
I4th inslant was one that created no little excite
ment in the .ommunily and sympathy for those
who have suffered loss in property and lriends.
The schooner lolani U nearly new, being on her
second trip only to Maui when the accident oc-
currwl, and was owned by Mr. A. F. Cooke and
" Capt. A. II. J?o?rs. She was on the passage from
-.Jialiko to this port, with little or no freight on
board, when 'in attempting to jibe (as one account
says while the main and lora boomB were both
fastened to the lee shrouds) the vessel was thrown
over and the iron bAlIast shifting, ac.fairjy aap
eized, keel out. Capt. Towers, being quite unabls
to swim, was drowned, as was also the cook,; but
the remainder of Uae crew got ashore on Lanai,
which was about a mile and a Lalf distant, in the
schooner's boat.; The news of die disaster reached
Lahaina late on the 14th, and the next day Mr
Ki Nahaolelua, and subsequently Mr. W. Mf
Gibioa and Sheriff Everett, proceeded to the
wreck wllh a party of workers and saved tbe sails,
spars, etc., and were endeavoring to right the ves
sel when on Saturday the steamer KUauea came
along and took the job out of their hands. With
the superior facilities of Ue steamer and the skill
and energy ot her officers, this was soon accom
plished, and tbe vessel being taken in tow was
bronght into port by. the Kilcme about JO o'clock
on Sunday morniDg." The claims for sal rage by
parties from Maui being either withdrawn or com
promised, the only claimant in the matter will be
tbe steamer. As to the cause of the accident, nau
tical mea generally agree that the vessel was in
sufficiently ballasted, and that the ballast she bad
on board was not properly secured in the hold.
It is also said that tbe operation of jibing under
the circumstances aad in the way in which it was
done was imprudent and unskillful. Ilowever, if
poor Powers waa at fault te feu PU for. it wit
his life, ne was an honest, industrious and de

An old theme as old as tbe Christian era,
and one which in almost eTery country where
Christianity has obtained a foothold Las been a
source of debate and even sttife since tbe day
when the disciples of Him who was Lord also
of the Sabbath " lucked tbe ears of corn on
the 6acred day the question of the legal observ
ance of Sunday, has lately been again and rather
warmly brought before the public. We do not
propose to enter into any controversy on the
subj.ct, as it would lead to no satisfactory
result, but will venture a few remark", In a
spirit of charity and consideration for the opin
ions of all.
When the command to keep the seventh day
holy was first given from Sinai, it was accom
panied with the reason, that it waa because God
on that day rested from the work of creation
It matters not whether we understand the term
day to mean ten thousand years or fifty thousand
or any given number of cycles a day unto Him,
we are told, is as a thousand years and a thou
sand years as a day. Uut the prominent idea in
the institution of the Jewish Sabbath, was rest
from labor, for man and beast. Christ, who
grew up in a Jewish home and under Jewish
teachings, but who by His Divine nature knew all
thing?, on more than one occasion rebuked the
Scribes and Pharisees for their legal strictness in
regard to tbe observance of the day, and declared
Himself Lord also of the Sabbath Day." In
the history of the Primitive Christian Church we
fail to find any record of the Sabbath being kept
in the Jewish sense, but we read that the dis
cipilcfl were wont to meet together on tbe first
day of the week, in memory of the Lord's
resurrection. But it was more than three bun
drcd years after Christ that Constantine, a
Christian Emperor of Home, ordered the public
observance of the first day of the week, or Sun
day, in the place of the Jewish Sabbath, as a
memorial day of Christ's resurrection and on
which to perform divine worship. It Las never
been claimed even by tradition, that Constantino
was commanded or inspired by God to alter or
amend tho law of Moses in respect to the
Almost every church or sect of Christians has
its own views in regard to the observance of
the Sabbath or Sunday, and while most observe
tbe Sunday of the Koman Emperor, there are
some, such as the 44 Seventh-day Baptists,'' who
still cling to tbe Jewish Sabbath, keeping Satur
day holy. And therein, if singular, tbey are at
least consistent. Tbe Puritans made tbe day
one of auBterity and gloom, while tbe Catholic
Church kept and still keeps it in moat countries
as a day of worship first, and afterwards as
one of recreation and worldly amusement. A
singular fact in regard to the observance of the
Sabbath is that w hile the real Jews observe the
seventh day as holy with great strictness, because
the Bible commands it, the Christians seem to
need severe human laws, with fines and penal
ties, to ensure their keeping Sunday.
The words of Christ, that tbe Sabbath was
made for man, and not man for the Sabbath, like
everything that proceeded from Him who spake
as never man spake, have a deep significance,
and point to the institution of the Sabbath by
Moses for the wise purposes of rest and recupera
tion from the toil of six successive days by both
man, a living soul, and the beast that perishes.
That the opinions in regard to the keeping of
Sabbath or Sunday are as various as tbe sects of
religion are numerous, is evident from the fact
that laws are considered necessary to secure tbe
observance of the day. If all were of one opin
ion in the matter of tbe utter sacredncss of the
day, Christians would need no civil law to induce
them to keep it as strictly as do the Jews. In
this, the 19th century, it is not to be supposed
that tbe infliction of fines and penalties will be
effectual in correcting matters of faith. Tbe
days of bloody Mary and of tbe Inquisition are
happily past. Laws providing for tbe observance
of one day in seven as a day of rest, should be,
like all laws, for the-benefit of all alike, to give
offense to none, neither to the Puritan with his
austere ideas of the Sabbath, nor to the Catholic
with his Constantine Sunday, half worship and
half play, nor to him who professes no creed at
all, and considers tho day as one of rest, recrea
tion and recuperation. The Emperor of Japan,
we have no reason to suppose is a Christian, but
ho has recently ordered the observance of Sunday
throughout his dominions as a day of rest, as a
sanitary measure. To all the people, citizens of
a common country, whatever their faith, "or of no
faith, the laws of the country owe equal protec
tion in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
A proper Sunday law should be no more and no
less than un enactment to compel every one to
behave himself with due consideration and propri
ety towards bis neighbor, by avoiding the ap
pcaranco of everything that may give offense.
Thus, while it would be an insult and offensive
to the feelings of. a large part of tho community
if the work-shops and traffic of the town were al
lowed to go on with business on Sunday as on
other days, it would be no lees an insult to tho
rights and liberties of others whose religious
creed is that of tbe minority to persecute, fine
and imprison them for engaging in some secular
occupation on that day in the privacy of their
homes. Moses forbade the working of cattle on
the Sabbath day. If, however, it is no offense to
harness up a horse and drive him to church on
Sunday, what particular grade of Sabbath break
ing is reached by driving a nail on which to bang
one's coat, or by cleansing with water or even
whitewash one's room, so long as this is not done
in a public manner whereby one's brother is
offended ?' Mail steamers which happen jtp
reach port on Sunday and must be discharged in
order to proceed on their voyage, should be per
mitted to do so, but into a private warehouse or
wharf-shed, while the passage of drays on the
street should be forbidden. To keep Sunday in
the 19th century with the same strictness that
the Jews kept the Sabbath, is an impossibility,
in consequence of the requirements of civilized
life, so far in advance of the wants of the nomads
to whom the law of Moses was given. To avoid
giving offense is a Christian virtue ; peeping into
key-holes to find offenses is not a virtue. But in
any event, let us have as a rest, one day out of
" Birds cannot always sing ,
Silence at times they ask- to nurse spent feeling;
To see some new, bright thing,
Ere a fresh burst of song, fresh joy rerealicg.
" Flowers cannot always Mow ;
" Some Sabtath-rest tbey need of silent winter ;
Ere from iu sheath below
Shoots np a small, green blade, brown earth to splinter.
r Tongues cannot always speak ;
O God ! in this loud world of noise and clatter,
Save us this ooce-a-week,
To let the sown seed grow, not always scatter."
' The strangeb, who lands for the first time on
the shores of the Hawaiian Archipelago, can not
fail to be impressed by the evident proofs, every
where, of the progress social, political and re
ligious which these meritorious islanders have
made, in the course of little more than a'eentu-
ry, since Captain Cook fell a victim to the fury of
the heathen savages of the Isle of Hawaii. In
other regions of the world, native races have
been brought in contact with the white man for
a touch linger period of time, without eviden
cing at the recent day that material, moral and
religious developnent which is noticeable in the
highly gifted native race of these isles. Thus,
for example, tbe native races of India have had
the advantage for centuries past of being bronght
into close connexion with the nioet enlightened
nation of the Old World Portuguese, Dutch,
French and English and notwithstanding tbeir
long enjoyment of British rule, they still con
tinue heathen for the most part, and in other
respects very little more advanced than tbeir an
cestors of the Vedic times. Nor can their back
ward condition be attributed to any fault of
their British rulers, who have spared no efforts to
diffuse the Gospel light over the benighted land
of Iiiode, at the same time that tbey have gradu
ally taken the despot-ridden people of India
under the beneficent sway of Great Britain. The
backwardness of the native races of India,
def pite cf all Ue British plans for their conver
sion and Christian civilization, contrasts most
significantly with tbe truly astonishing and rapid
progress of tbe Hawaiian islanders ; and can only
be explained by tbe natural superiority of the
latter over the former. A similar comparison of
the Hawaiian Islanders might be made with
other native races of Asia and Africa who have
been more or less connected for centuries with
the white man as, for example, the Chinese, so
long accustomed to tbe maritime intercourse of
all civilized European nations ; the Tartars,
neighbors and subjects of Russia; even the Turks
actually holding a footing on tbe soil of civilized
Europe ; to say nothing of African races, such as
the Kopts and Habsheee, idolatrous Christians,
as also tbe wild Kabayls and savage Kafirs, sub
jects of France and England respectively, and
in every instance we do not hesitate to declare
that the advantage is immensely in favor of the
amiable and good natured native race of these
elands. It is true that we must attribute the
rapid progress of the people of the Hawaiian
Archipelago to the alacrity with which they
opened their minds and hearts to Gospel truth ;
but in their case the seed fell indeed upon good
soil it is only just to say whereas it has been
choked up in great part by the superstition, fa
naticism and savageness of those benighted races
of Asia and Africa, with whom we have com
pared the Christian kanaka. Here, in the remote
Pacific, we find a respectable Kingdom whose
government is based upon the most advanced
principles of Christian civilization, and a worthy
native race who vie with the white man in the
adoption of all the improvements of tbe most en
lightened modern society. We do not in truth
suppoee that tbe kanaka is faultless who has
not his own failings ? But we rejoice to think
that the evangelized kanaka whatever may be
his weaknesses and " all flesh is weak,"
offers so striking a proof both in his religious
and his mundane condition of the incalcula
ble blessings which Christianity confers not
only in the super-natural, but also in the natural
life of mankind, upon those who embrace with
earnestness the sublime law of Jesus Christ.
The Lahui Hawaii, native newspaper, of this
week, has an editorial under the above heading,
from which we translate as follows :
44 Agriculture is tbe foundation of prosperity :
by it man is fed, and by the sale of its products
wealth is created. It was tbe primary occupation
of man on earth, at bis creation in the garden of
Eden. In all enlightened countries, it is greatly
cherished and prized, and neglected only by those
nations who are uncivilized and nomadic.
Wherever civilization is the highest, there tbe
greatest attention is paid to the cultivation of
44 It is evident that the Hawaiians in former
times, when the people were numerous, were in
dustrious cultivators of the soil. We see the
signs of this to-day in the remains of extensive
patches, stone enclosures, aud water-courses.
Why is it that the Hawaiians of to-day are so
different from their forefathers in this respect?
It is because of the prevalent desire to get
wealth in a hurry, and a contempt for the slow
and moderate results of agriculture. There is
nothing' wrong in getting rich speedily, if it is
done honestly ; but it is not often that this
occurs. Most of tbe good things of this life are
obtained by slow, careful painstaking, and by
giving heed to the small things.
The cultivation of the soil is an occupation
that is open to all who have a will to work. Bu
few can succeed in the professions ; many of the
trades are filled ; but it is not so with farming,
in which the field is ample. A vast amount of
wealth lies concealed in the soil of our country,
waiting to be brought to light by our farmers.
We have previously spoken of this subject,
and the thought of the great benefits to the Haw
aiian people which are hidden beneath tbeir soil
awaiting only the exercise of their industry, in
duces us to again call upon tbe nation to arouse
to the importance of agriculture. Tbe time iB
rapidly passing, and it is Hawaii's opportunity.
People from other lands are coming here and en
gaging in the cultivation of sugar, rice, coffee, J
etc. That is well. He do not object to tbe
foreigners, if they are people of the right sort.
But we earnestly desire to eee the Hawaiians,
the original occupants of these islands them
selves cultivating their heritage, the land of their
fathers, rather than for tbe sake of a few dollars
in hand, which is quickly spent, turning it over
into the possession of others. Isananas, rice,
peanuts, sugar cane in some localities, all these
, ... C 1 Al TT ??
can oe grown vna proub uy tue xiawaiians.
44 Therefore we say cultivate your lands, O
Hawaiians, and your wealth will increase. But
if you will not, be sure that the foreigners will.
For tbe waste places, and the rich lands where
tbe cattle run, and the water courses running to
waste, are calling for hands to come and plant
and reap the rich harvest. Cultivate then your
lands, people of Hawaii, and the earth shall feed
and clothe you."
Mr. Edward MacDoxxkll, who arrived on the

department of this journal. An article from bis

Large Transaction in Real Estate.
The Waikapu Plantation at East Maul, owned
by Mr. Henry Cornwall, was recently sold at the
rate or $175,000 for the whole, the original prc
pr;.'tor rt'taioing an iate-resi. The purchasers are
Messrs. W. II. Cornwell and George W. Micfar
Une, and we ar pleased to recognize in the tran
saction a desire to give the youDg folks a
chance." This is the largest sale of real estate
that we have had to chronicle, being $1000 more
than the ftaibee Estate. Tbe Waikapu Plantation
can produce 1000 tons annually, and if the pro
prietors succeed in bringing water on tojthe com
mons, either by boring or ditching, their produc
tion will increase to 2000 tons. The plantation is
now paying between $40,000 and 850,000 per
annum above all expenses, and ".would sot have
been sold except in the interest of W. H. Cornwell
the son of the original proprietor.
Notes on the Sabbath Question.
7 the Etlltor of th Pacific Commercial Advertiser
J Sir: I tbe law about the Sabbath founded lit
trail v upon tbe Fourth Commandment? If it is
scarce a church-going family in tbe town but
breaks it! All have tbeir meals cooked by
servants and all drive to church in buggies
working their cattle and servants-tbus directly
breaking tbe commandment and the law.
But even the Fourth Commandment does not for
bid amusement. Now we profess to be free from
ecclesiastial government; but tbe Sabbath law is
purely ecclesiastial in origin and working. It is
but one of numerous cases where men who came
here to preach a religion of the heart and to have
no authority bat through the conscience, unfor
tunately were made governors and statesmen
Tbey did what all ecclesiastics have done when
given political power laid the land under an
All that tbe law can justly do is, for social and
civil reasons to forbid tbe opening of stores and
factories on Sunday. The old law is practically
nearly repealed in this town, and quite so as re
gards all rich people. But in tbe outlying dis
tricts it ia Btill worked tyrannically. Some time
ago, at Koolau, some poor natives were informed
against and condemned to imprisonment at bard
labor for pounding their poi on Sunday. A for
eign visister to the islands then and there present
has sent an account of the affair to tbe English
paperB. And such cases are not uncommon.
So long as this sort of thing goes on one law
for the rich, and another for the poor; one law
for buggy driving Christians and another for poor
natives ; so long will reasonable and just men re.
gard the Sabbatarian party as humbugs aud bypo
crites, and fail to appreciate their Christianity..
At tbe next Legislature tbe law must be amen
ded. Meanwhile the Attorney General ought to
decline to prosecute under tbe law, on tbe ground
that it is obsolete and disgraceful, barbarous and
unjust, partial in its working and altogether un
worthy of a community that calls itself civilized
and of a religion that professes to be based upon
tbe conscience and not upon mere outward law.
It is just the most earnest Christians who sbeuld
be tbe foremost in procuring an amendment of the
Sabbath law, and rescuing the name they; bear
from the shame that law has bronght upon it:
Tbe editor of tbe Gazette, iu bis foolish article
of this week, drags bis Master's name through the
dirt. Christ's work was one great long battle
against humbug and formalism. He denounced
tbe Sabbatarians of bis time. He showed up the
hypocrites wbo strained at gnats and swallowed
camels ; who appressed tbe poor ; wbo devoured
widow's bouses, and for pretence made long
pruyers ; wbo took heavy burdens and grievous to
be borne, and laid them on other men's shoulders,
but touched them not themselves.
Mr. Preston has done good service to the com
