cmbodies the legislation des
tined to keep guard over good morals, and to
regulate the mutual honorable relations of the
eexes. It is a most important portion of our
criminal code, and takes cognizance of all
crimes of a character opposed to morality. We
have referred to this subject to-day in conse
quence of a measure adopted by the proeecuting
officer of the crown in the course of the present
week, and which is now a matter of public
mander of the British war-steamer, then in the
port of Honolulu, received instructions to place
his vessel at the disposal of Major Wodchouse,
II. I. M.'fl Diplomatic Commissioner and
Consul General in this Kingdom ; and further
more, the British Admiral De Horsey 's flag-ship
was oeder orders to proceed to this port from
South America to co-operate with Major Wode
house and cany out his instructions from his
government. We think that our readers will
allow that the case was serious enough. Had a
man, less friendlily disposed to the Hawaiian
King and his people, than Major Wodchouse,
then filled the role which that gallant officer so
worthily and efficiently discharges in this
country, it is impossible to now earmise what
serious diplomatic complications might have
resulted out of Earl Derby's despatch. Fur-
vVe allude to Beveral arrests which
have been made by the police of a number of thermore. it was equally as fortunate that the Pati.ent8 wa9 85 tbe tallest
persons, male and female, under the provisions
of Chapter XIII of the Criminal Code above

cases of arrest the law in queetion has been
violated. Hence it is our duty at once to re
mark that tbe Attorney General is fully justified
by the legality of his proceeding. But, on tbe
head of our own Foreign Office was a man in
every way equal M the emergency, and also soci

equity of the course pursued by the Attorney
General, taking into account all the circum
stances and ihe moral standing of this people.
It is objected that tbe law in question has been
considered for a number of years past as obsolete.
That many of the parties now arrested have
been cohabiting for several years, bringing up
their families in every respect as if the parents
were lawfully married ; that a concerted separa
tion took place between husbands and wives,
before the second liaison was formed, and that
in some cases the friendliest relations subsist
between families whose heads, having separated
after marriage, entered upon these new relations.
It is asked : why did not the Attorney General
tike action in this matter long ago, when these
liaisons of so many years standing now, first be
came a matter of public observation. It is
alleged that many of the offending parties,
deeming their first separation sufficient, were
really unconscious of moral guilt and legal res
ponsibility, in their second association, which made
them in many cases, also fathers and mothers of
families. In fact, the tone of society was so far
indifferent to these liaisons that no stigma of
bastardy has even been attached to the offspring
of Bimilar unions. It is argued, then, that
society having become so lax during a long pe
riod of years, on the score of these matters, the
sudden measure of the Attorney General falls
was really the result of the weighty anxiety
which that despatch and the serious diplomatic
complication involved therein, occasioned to our
enthusiastic and high-souled Minister for Foreign
Affairs, with whom love of country is one of
the liveliest and purest of his sentiments. The
nation was wholly in the dark all this time, with
regard to the storm-cloud which was brooding
over Hawaii nci owing entirely to the blunders
of the predecessors in office of our able Foreign
Minister. The East Indian "coolie ' question,
which many people thought to be the principal
object of our diplomatist's journey to the Court
of St. James, positively waned into a mere
glimmer before the lightning flash which elec
trified his movements in his eajrer haste to meet
Lord Derby 'face to face and endeavor by his
diplomatic abilities to avert the threatened
storm. We 6ce no reason why we should hesi
tate to state a matter now pretty notorious here
namely, that it was at the Hon. Mr. Carter's
earnest solicitation that his friend Major Wodc
house accompanied him to San Francisco on bis
own responsibility, and without positive instruc
tions from the British Foreign Office, with the
plan of telegraphing to Earl Derby from San
Francisco for leave to proceed to London. As
matters turned out, the telegraph duly brought
Major Wodehouse an affirmative reply, as we

Calmly he glTe to Him that gare, and Like one who
wraps the drapery of his couch about him, and lies down to
Kjmoslet. In this citv. Sent 7th. of
Kissslit alias Jeff DarU. aged 62 years, a native oi New
families, and their parents with a serious im
moral crime which the lax state of society
and the inactivity of the law officers themselves
have overlooked and tolerated for many years
past. Indeed, there is a special complaint made
of partiality, inasmuch as native Ilawaiians
alone have been arrested, whereas a good many
foreigners are equally as liable to be charged
with similar breaches of the law. This is well
known to be the case, and we are bound to re
mark that the conduct of the authorities is open
to censure, and in saying this, we merely echo
a popular complaint.
Tbe jealous guardianship of public morals
rests not only with the state but likewise with
the church. It is the imperative duty of min
isters of religion to keep up the moral tone of
their flock. Ilere, it- is really very natural to
ask : IIow is it that the spiritual guides of the
people have been so long silent upon this im
moral feature of Ila waiian society? Have
these Hawaiian natives, still in a nascent state
of christian civilization, been sufficiently in
structed on the solemn and hallowed character
of the marriage tie ? And why is it that the
foreign church folk have folded their hands and
closed their eyes to the evidences of this great
evil that now euddenly comes to the surface ?
How much has the evil example of whites, now
let off scot free influenced the natives in a
disregard of the holiness of wedlock ? Public
morality, like many other matters, depends very
much upon example, and fashion, and, in short
the tone of society. Where children are con
cerned, the bar of bastardy is very unpleasant,
to say the least. Hitherto society here has
been blind to this condition of several families
of the rising generation. Perhaps a milder
measure, which would even more effectually
stem adulterous connection for the future with
out defaming the young and innocent, might
have been expected from the legal wisdom of
the government. As tbe matter stands it has
been thought fit to fall back upon an almost
obsolete law, as a means of remedying an ac
knowledged moral evil, but, nevertheless one
which the want perhaps of a thoroughly efficient
divorce law in the kingdom, such as exists in
Great Britain for instance that stronghold of
christian morality has rendered to a certain
extent almost a necessary evil, however objec
tionable. Since the foregoing was put in type, we
hear that the government authorities have conclud
ed to abandon the policy of volcanic morality upon
which we have briefly commented. When the
body politic is diseased, administer medicine ;
but not in such sudden, violent doses !
sioner, and H. H. M.'s Diplomatic Envoy have
had time to communicate personally with Earl
Derby at London, on the subject of Kameha
mcha the Third's Treaty of Commerce with
Queen Victoria still in force up to their arrival
at all events in England, whatever may have
6inco been arranged in the matter. For this
serious diplomatic complication, wo repeat, that
this country is soley indebted to foregoing admin
istrations. Wc trust that it has been amicably
settled, and that no British threats of force will
hereafter disturb tho happiness of those gentle
men who have heretofore held the reins of gov
ernment in this Kingdom. They have the
honor of having almost occasioned an outbreak
of hostilities between 11. B. M. Victoria and II.
II. M. Kalakaua ; and they may thank their
lucky stars " that the reins of government are
now entrusted to abler hands or perhaps there
might have been a very different story to tell.
The next European mail should bring tidings of
the arrival of II. H. M.'s Diplomatic Envoy at
London, and some information concerning tho
result so far of his mission which included
so delicate and difficult a work of diplomacy, and
far different from the East Indian " coolie "
business. We feel the fullest confidence that
our Hawaiian diplomatist has been quite equal to
the occasion, and that he will succeed in settling
this untoward business in his usually happy
In conclusion wc challenge any member of
the foregoing administrations or of the Ha
waiian public generally, to disprove a single
statement which wo have made in the preceding
remarks ; and, if we have been so explicit, the
reason is because we hear that our remarks on
the subject of the British Treaty in our last
issue have been called into question. The Ha
waiian public now knows much more of the real
facts of the case than it was possible to glean
from our passing allusion to the Treaty's not
having been " denounced," and we think that
the news by the next mail from Europe' will cow
be expected here with much more anxiety than
that brought out to these Islands for many a
month before. However, we beg to add, that
the fact of Major Wodehouse having been al
lowed to proceed to London argues favorably
for the amicable settlement of this diplomatic
complication, and Bhows that Lord Derby is not
disposed to push matters to extremes. Well
may the Hawaiian people exclaim : what a

Ocr kemarks upon the Treaty of Commerce
between this country and Great BritaiD, conclud
ed between Kamehameha III and Queen Vic
toria, and still in force at least in the opinion
of Earl Derby and the Britieh' Government in
the month of February last, have occasioned
some expressions of surprise and even doubts as
to our veracity, on the part of certain persons
here who think themselves well posted on the
acts of the two foresoinff Hawaiian nrlmlnin.
The Hawaiian Gazelle's last issue has some re
marks upon the question of capital punishment, and
publishes a correspondence on the case of the mur
derer under sentence of death in Oahu jail. The
editor of the Gazette seems to think that the advo
cates for the abolition of capital punishment propose
to substitute only a light or temporary punish
ment instead." Now the argument of the abolition
ists of capiial punishment is that life-long bondage
is really a more dreadful doom than death, as a con
demned woman in the States lately declared. Cer
tainly, we would prefer death to life-long bondage;
and our previous remarks on this subject were not
called forth by any " mistaken sympathy for mur
derers." .Neither IS it easv to nnrlprslan,! f,n
Acs oss thb Pacific. The last voyage of the
City of Sydney from Sydney to the port of llono- Kingdom ; but, we are now prepared
lulu was the fastest on record, Eince steamers have
been running on this line. We are indebted to our
old friend, the Chief Engineer of the City of
Sydney (Mr. T. O'llara) for the following memo
randum of tbe time and distance of this remark
able steam voyage. Banning time from Sydney to
Auckland : 4 days, 15 hours, 10 minutes ; from
Auckland to Honolulu ; 13 days, 20 hours. -Total
time: 13 days, 11 hours, 10 minutes. Total dis
tance from Sydney to Honolulu ; 5139 nautical
mites. It may be observed that the odd 10 min
utes of tbe total time might be thrown out, being
lost ia taking in the pilot. Also, owing to heavy
weather before coming up to this port, the En
gineer of the City of Sydney was forced to abate
speed, with the loss of about 100 miles in the run
of 24 hours. In March last, we had the pleasure
to express our high approval of the tout ensemble
of this crack e team-ship of the P. S. N. Co's fleet ;
and we are glad to find that tha accident which at
that time occurred to her machinery, occasioning
such weighty anxiety to her very efficient Chief
Engineer charged with tbe serions responsibility

anxiety among the friends of the people of this defy with impunity the majesty and terror of the
to state law- As for the insinuations of the Gazette's ear-
further on this subject that the
blunder of previous administrations in overlook
ing altogether or otherwise bungling the " de
nunciation " of Kamehameha the Third's Treaty
with Queen Victoria, was on the point of com
promising in the most serious manner, bo late as
tbe month of February of this current year,
1877, the friendly and peaceful relations hereto
fore existing between this small Kingdom and
that of Great Britain. This statement may as
tonish many of our readers, but it is not the
less correct on that account. In the beginning
of this year, a despatch left the British Foreign
office, by orders of Earl Derby, to the address of
the British Commissioner and Consul General at
Honolulu, Sandwich Islands. That despatch
duly arrived here by the March mail. Our
Minister for Foreign Affairs was then, as the
public here recollect, engaged on the Hawaiian
respondent with reference to the motives of the
writer of the remarks on the desirability of the abol
ition of capital punishment in previous issues of this
journal, they are Eoarce worth consideration. Peo
ple who question the motives of others, have often
very self-interested motives for their own cndactD
When the Gazelle's correspondent says: " Now, if
the sentence of this murderer be commuted, a pre
cedent will have been established for the utter aboli
tion of the death penalty it may have occurred
to him that, in such case" Othello's occupa'tion is
gone ! " "and there is an end of the law of the
land," and the lawyers who make a living by it !
Personally, we have no interest whatever in the life
or death of this condemned felon, it is almost need
less to remark. Eut, we cannot forget that we are
all as capable of committing murder as the most
wicked felon, unless we are strengthened and forti
fied by God's grace; and when we hear of the crime
of a murderer we have reason to thank God that we
