READ THE FOLLOWING ANALYSIS:
flMIR ST. LOUIS LAGER BEER. OF E.
M. ANHEL'SER & Co., at St. Louis, Mo., having been ana
lyzed, gave the following results :
Specific Gravity. .
1.02 per cent.
From these figures it will be readily seen that the ST. LOUIS
LAGER BEER proves a heavier specific weight than all other
Beer now manufactured in our market; its substance of car
bonic acid is superior even to the Scotch Ale, Sal va tor Beer,
Braucschweiper Mumme and Munchener Lager Beer; its sub
stance of alcohol comes near the Munchener JJofbrau, and its
extract substance proves to be between the Zacherl Doppelbier
and the Salvator Beer.
CONCLUSIONS FROM THE ANALYSIS OF THE
The quality of this Beer, as shown by our analysis, is supe
rior by its pureness, as no extraneous matter could be detect
ed. The large amount of abstract substance (malt being used
in extraordinary great quantities, which, having been roasted,
gives the Beer that peculiar flavor of fresh bread) makes this
" ery nounxmng and recnmmendable drink for meaici
nal purposes. Another good quality of this Beer is that it
keeps in good condition under all circumstances.

Several communications referring to the Edi
torial correspondence, No 1," of the Gazette, have
been received, but, unfortunately, we are com
pelled to decline insertion them in this journal, on
the ground that they are too personal. We shall
be happy to hear again from " Vox Populi " upon
gome subject of more general interest.
A Passenger. by the schooner M. E. Foster,
Capt. Christian, from Kau, Hawaii, speaks most
highly of the seaworthy qualities of that vessel and
her speed, bat more particularly of her captain as a
skillful mariner, and courteous with his passengere.
Her cabin accommodations are second to none, - says
our informant. The route upon which this vessel
runs includes Punalau, and is one of the most difficult
traveled by the coasting fleet.
Reax Otsters. Our readers will remember that
in a recent number of this journal a statement was
published of the discovery of a bed of oyster shells,
which were evidently quite ancient, some supposing
them to be cotemporaneous with the earliest exis
tence of the genus homo, as per Darwin. We find,
however, that oysters are oysters, for during the
past week Mr. James Campbell, the enterprising
proprietor of Honouliuli, in dredging, brought op
several bushels of small oysters. People doubted
whether they were real oysters or some native
mollusc, but the taste of the true oyster was all
there. Cannot these incipient luxuries, like many
other inchoate Hawaiian resources, be developed
into something tangible and valuable by careful and
judicious cultivation? The very fact of their exis
tence in our tropical waters shows that there are
no insuperable obstacles in the way of a result so
Nobody sympathizes with the Eoad Supervisor at
the present eeason of the year ; but lots of people
are found who d dnounce the uncomfortable joltiDg
they experience over the roads and streets.
No inckease whatever, we are told by the
Gazette's correspondent, is asked or desired in tbe
expenses of the Queen's Hospital. Let us bear
this in mind, tax-payers, and be joyful.
A Royal Friab. The ex-Kiug of Spain, Ama

A very amaiDg poem, entitled " The Macs and
theO's," has been left on our desk, but we regret
that we have cot space in our present issue for its
insertion. It can keep, however, until we can afford
a half column in some subsequent issue.
Last Sunday Night, this Island was blessed

the Festival of St. Andrews, interesting services

the anniversary of the death of Kamehanieha IV.
who died in 18C3.
The Telegraph Station. In the event of the
Subuiaiine Cable Scheme between San Francisco
and New Zealand via the "Sandwich Isles,"
being adopted, we think that the Telegraph Station
is likely to be located at Waikiki beyond the Park
on the chore near Diamond Head; between which
and Honolulu a Telegraph Hue would establish
A 'Tax-payer," writing from Molokai, com
plains about a bridge over a stream on that island.
Said bridge is at Wuialna ; is said to be finished
is described as a ' perfect beauty of a bridge"
but there is some difficulty about the approaches
thereto. We have no doubt but that the Super
intendent of Public Works his attention being
directed thereto will give our correspondent
every needed satisfaction in tbe premises.
The letter of Dr. Ilodgers in the Gatette, on the
subject of the management by the Board of Health
of tbe Queen's Hospital, is fair and manly, and
certainly suggestive. We say this without in the
least desiring to reflect upon the manner in which
the Hospital has been managed in the past, which
we are happy to know has been quite superior
and unexceptionable, but upon the general prin
ciple of excelsior.
We find the following in a late number of tbe
Sacramento Record-Union :
" His Will. The late S. P. Page, of the Lake
House, left a will, of which J. I. Felter is executor,
giving one-half of his property to his niece, a school
teacher, residing in Honolulu, and the remainder
to his nephew in Illinois. The property will pro
bably amount, after payment of debts, to $5,000 or
We kegket to read ia the Missionary Herald
the announcement of the death of a worthy South
African Missionary, the Reverend Mr. Stone, who
was also distinguished for his knowledge of the
Zulu Kafir tongue, the Amazulu being a low dia
lect of the West Kafir or Amakoza, the " People of
Cush," as the writer hereof has heretofore con
cluded. Translations of the scriptures, ecclesi
astical and general histories, aud a bymn-book in
Amazulu are works left behind by this noted East
aGr Scholar and Missionary.
Pettifoggery. We notice in the New Zealand
papers that H. II. Lusk of the late Southern
Monthly Magazine has been fined 50 by the New
Zealand Parliament, of which he is a member, for
" breach of privilege." by taking a 50 note as a
li lawyer's fee," in a matter connected with Par
liamentary business, when the honorable member
should have given his services gratis. This should
be a warning to all gentlemen of the long robe
every where, even in Hawaii nei. not to pocket
fees to which they are not lally entitled. Mr.
Lusk pleaded ignorance of tbe rules of the House.
A telegram says that tbe House first resolved to
make Mr. Lusk pay back the money, but he stated
that the 50 had never entered bis pocket. Tbe
House then decided to fine tbe honorable gentle
New Theatre. Lovers of the drama, who comprise
a large proportion of our foreign residents, will be
pleased to learn that a project is on foot for build
ing a new theatre, better suited to the comfort and
convenience of playgoers, and the proper presenta
tion of the legitimate drama. Should tbe matter
reach a final consummation it will remove one
cause of reproach to which we are subjected, parti
cularly by visitors sojourning in the metropolis.
The proposed plan of proceeding is by a joint stock
company, of which the public will be invited to
take shares, and when a sufficient number are
engaged proper steps will be taken to carry out
the object in view. It is a matter which, we are
sure, will enllBt the sympathy and encouragement
of the general public. We heartily wish it a
Sallie, have you called in at A. L. Smith's
store lately?" "No, I have not." "Well I was
in there this week looking at his new goods for
Christmas, and he has got lots of pretty things ;
useful too, as well as ornamental. He has some
very handsome sofa pillows already made up ; also
a variety of foot-stools, just the thing to rest your
feet on when you come borne in the evening tired

Inequality of the Sexes in Paraguay. The fol
lowing paragraph appears in an exchange:
"The equality in point of numbers of the sexes
is mo6t nearly attained In France. For every
one thousand men there is one thousand and seven
women. Tbe other extreme is found in Paraguay,
where there are two thousand and eighty-nine
women for one thousand men."
As we recently remarked, on the subject of
population in Paraguay, the excess of the femi
nine over the masculine population is there
equally as perplexing 3 the opposite case here.
We doubt not that a very good class of female
immigrants could be obtained for this country
from the land of the Guaranies.

The following telegram was received by Sir
George Grey on Saturday, from Mannhiri, private
secretary of Tawbiao : " Alexandra, October 20,
1877. Friend Sir George Gray, greetings to you.
We have heard tbat you have become one of the

The House of Braganza. Tbe present King
of Portugal as well as the Emperor of Brazil, are
lineally descended from the celebrated Inez de Cas
tro, second wife of Dom Pedro tbe Just of Portugal.
The tragic fate of Inez is beautifully sung by
Camoens in the Third Book of his " Lusiads." The
unfortunate Inez was assassinated In 1350, at
Coimbra, in the Convent of St. Clare, by the order
of her own father-in-law, the King of Portugal.
Her remains were deposited in the Royal Abbey of
Alcobaza, where they lay till ruthlessly disturbed
by the French in the sack of Alcobaza ; but were
afterwards reverently replaced in their tomb by
order of the late Duke of Wellington.

Allow me to inquire what the policy of our Gov

In July last several persons were notified by the
constables to be in readiness fo go to Honolulu for
inspection by the Government physician there.
Some of these persons were ehockingly bad, and
still they dwell here at large, and most likely are now
much worse than in July.
The Island of Kauai has always been fortunate in

negligence of allowing such bad cases to be at large

To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
Sir: The impartial administration of the law
is the best test of a good government, and no
greater stigma can attach itself to any govern
ment than the charge of a one-sided justice. In
tLis country, there are some very good laws, for
the prevention of drunkenness, profanity of lan
guage, and immorality. It is highly desirable
tbat those laws should be administered both rigid
ly and impartially. It would be a crying injustice
to take up the natives of this country for offences
against any or all of those laws, if the whiles are
allowed to commit crimes of intemperance, blas
phemy and fornication with impunity. To come
to tbe point a gentleman in this city had unfor
tunately occasion to be an car-witness, in tbe very
bouse where he lodged, one night lately, to a bac
chanalian riot, in which three whites were tbe
actors, where had drunkenness and blasphemy
were rampant, and he even reason to suspect that
immorality was also on the scene. Now, tbe very
next day, tbe same gentleman saw a native Ha
waiian kanaka dragged off to tbe station-house, In
a state of intoxication by three or four policemen.
It at once occurred to him ns to whether he was
justified in not denouncing to the police, tbe three
white violators of the law in his own lodgings of
tbe previous night. A man who witnesses a
robbery or a murder is bound to denounce tbe
thief or assassin, and by not doing so he becomes
an accomplice in their evil deeds. Now, why
should not the same principle be applied to every
case of violation of 'the laws of tbe laud ? Wby
should not a conscientious, law-abiding subject fed
bound to denounce a drunkard or blasphemer or
fornicator, jnst as much as a robber or a murder
er? This is a delicate question of conscience. It
is horrible to think tbat white scoundrels, calling
themselves christians, can commit with impunity
crimes of drunkenness and blasphemy, and per
haps fornication, in the lodging-houses of natives,
while some poor ignorant kanaka, only nominally
a christian, who becomes intoxicated with tbe
liquor which some unprincipled christian publican
or heathen pake sells him illegally, is made to suf
fer tbe penalty of the law for his misfortune in
meeting with some demoralized aud law-brenking
dram-sellers. All decent whites in this community
should firmly resolve to tolerate no white black
guardism in their midst. They should consider it
a conscientious duty to jealously guard that the
laws punishing drunkenness, blasphemy and im
morality, be rigidly and impartially enforced.
Even Ike most enlightened countries of the wot Id
can not boast of such good laws ns we have tbe
happiness to possess. In England and tbe United
States, immoral vices stalk abroad in the open
day with impunity ; in France, and other coun
tries, brotTiels are regularly licensed by the police.
Tbank God, we are better off in our little Hawa
iian Kingdom in this tet-pect. than tbe most boast
ed centres of civilization. To shield the unsophis
ticated natives of these Islands from the degrading
vices of the civilized whitetnan in his corruption,
is a truly good work, which all good whites
should consider a Loble duty, and this can only be
done by conscientiously denouncing all white vio
lators of the laws against drunkenness, blasphemy,
and immorality, without mercy and impartially,
to the officers of justice. Where wickedness rtots
unpunished, the doom of sin is mysteriously mani
fested in ways which an inscrutable Providence
alone designs and comprehends.
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser :
Sib : la discussing the laws having reference
to offenses against the Sabbath day, I should think
the wisest plan to be first to find out all about tb
Sabbath, what is tbe Sabbatb, or even is there a
Sabbath, and then fines, and punishtteDt, and
offenses may be fairly, and justly judged.
Where is the Sabbath or Sunday or any one day
in the week that I or you or any one is bound by
any divine law to esteem above another ss a holy
day. Tbat is tbe question ! Tbe school and the
preacher tescbes us that the Jewish Sabbatb is still
in force but has been changed by divine authority
from the seventh to the first day. This doctrine
has been harrowed, and ploughed into our young
souls, and beaten into our heads, precept by precept,
at home and at church, until our consciences have
been moulded by the church instead of by the New
Testament. The law of tbe Sabbatb was a positive
law, depending entirely upon the will of th law
giver, and unlike a moral law can be amended or re
pealed by the law making power. Under the Jewish
economy tbe law of sacrifice was a positive law,
but for eighteen hundred years it has not been
binding on Jew or Gentile. It expired with the
Jewish theocracy Now the law of tbs Sabbath
was a positive law. It is for the first time recorded
in the Exodus as a law given from Sinai. Remem
ber the Sabbatb day to keep it holy, etc. Th reason
given for this precept is " for in six days, etc."
But it is worthy of note that in the repetition of
the law in tbe fifth chapter of Deuteronomy quite
another reason is given in the fifteenth verse of the
chapter. " And remember that thou wast a servant
in the land of Egypt, and tbat the Lord thy God,
brought thee out thence, therefore the Lord thy
God commanded thee to keep the Sabbath day."
In the thirteenth chapter of Exodus explicit direc
tion is given by Moses, as the mouthpiece of God,
as to how the law wss to be obeyed "ye shall keep
the Sabbath therefore for it is holy unto you. Every
one that defileth it shall le surely put to death, for
whosoever doeth any work therein that soul shsll
be cut off from among the people, etc." And in the
book of Numbers we have account of the execution
of the law upon a man who had tranrgrcssed by
picking up sticks on the Salbath, perhaps to cook by.
Now here we have in the Statute itself, and in tbe
way it was enforced among the Jews thess two
ideas' viz , 1st, that the seventh day is tbt Sabbatb,
and so other. 2nd, that on the seventh day any
manner of work whether by man or beast was to bs
It is alledged by the Sabbatarians that this is a
moral law a law incapable of the least alteration
or repeal, binding forever. Yet there are of all
religions only Jens and seventh day Baptistj who
obey the law as to time and there are none at all,
who obey it as the law requires. All the rest, even
the Presbyter'uus who are sticklers for the Bible as
the sole rule of faith and practise do not observe
the seventh day at all, neither do they regard the
express prohibition to abstain from all manner of
work, and to keep their horses, manservant or maid
servant from work It is incredible but it is truo,
that although they say the law is moral and un repeal
able they have repealed it in respect of tha day of
the week to be observed changing it from the seventh
to the first day. Every family in this dsy, in this
country, violates the Sabbath law by tusking fire in
the cook house, by driving the borso carriage to
church, so that if tbe law were in force now, evsry
one almost would have to be put to death.
Now the ten commandments was the constitu
tional law of the Hebrew Commonwealth which
was binding upon the Jews but upon no other
people on earth. The Sabbath law was positive in
its character, and was intended to commemorate
particularly the deliverance of the Jews from the
bondage of Egypt, just as the fourth of July com
memorates tbe Independence of America. It was
not enjoined as a day of religious devotion at all,
but only one of profound rest from toil, fur the
word " Holy" in the law, as every one knows
meaus " Devoted" Set apart from a common to a
sacred cause. That these provisions of law were
local and limited, and could never be apart of
universal religion appears from the law " Honour
thy father." etc., " that thy days may be long in
the laud which the Lord thy God givelh thee,"
What land? Why Canaan. It although appears
from the declaration that the seventh day ia the
Sabbath to the exclusion of any other day.
On a round planet how could any portion of twelve
hours of waking lime be tbe Sabbath for all the
world, or how could any one live, in January in a
climate below scro without kindling a fire? Tbe
law being positive makes the time saorod. A Jew
would have forfeited bis life Lad lie kept holy
Monday or any other day, btcaues the law ciprcsnly
says the seventh day is the Sabbath. It proves
itself therefore to be local, aud not intended to be
a feature of a universal religion, adapted to all
nations and climates.
In process of time the Hebrew theocracy, des
troyed by the Romumt, panned away forever, und
the Christian Church came Into exlHteucv, which
taking tbe JewUb Scriptures us Inspired repudia
ted nevertheless the Jews religion, while shu
opened ber doors to convert both from Jew aud
Gentile. Very early an ecumenical council (Acts
X V) was held to decido how thu Gentile converts
stood to the law of Moses which included the Sab
bath, and it was decided that church uieiubers
should abstain only from blood, things strangled,
and fornication. Now If the Sabbatb law wun
universally binding in every age and country,
as preachers of to-duy ohstrl, why did not fbn
council say so in regard to the Gentile convert.
But how about Christ and Paul, the founder and
builder of tbe Christian Church? Jesus whose
precepts reached to the thoughts of the heart said
" that the Sabbath was made for man, and not man
for the Sabbath, and that he himself was Lord of
the Sabbath," and had the power to repeal. Tho
Sabbath law required absolute rest from woik
even to picking up a few slicks (o kindlo a fire, or
the bearing of any burden whatever. Yet on a
certain Sabbatb day Jesus at the pool of Ilelbescda
not only healed the lame man but ordered him to
Rise, take up thy bed, and walk." Now thut
man had lain at the pool for 38 years, and could
have waited 24 hours more, us much as neccHttlly
is concerned, and Jesus made him rise, and carry
his bed home, by which act, if the law were iu
force tho man foi felted Lis life. Jesus answered
the clamoring Jews. " My father workelh hitherto,
and I work." That is, 1 work without regard to
days. Then again he actually made tiny on tho
Sabbath to anoint tho blind man's eye, Then
again he desecrated th Sabbath law by travelling
on a Sabbatb through fields of corn. Who can
wonder tbat the Jews for those offences against
the Sabbath law called him a Sabbath-breaker ?
Christ knew well enough that it is cheap to go
punctually to Church and keep profoundly quiet
one day in seven, but a very different thing to
love the Lord with all our heart, and our neigh
bor as ourselves seven days out of seven.
Paul understood fully the mind of his master in
regard to Sabbatb observance and rejoices In the
liberty wherewith Christ had made him free, Paul
writes to tbe Galalians who were Intent on mixing
the system of religion with Jewish Christianity,
and urges a total giving up of everything that
was peculiar to Judaism. "Ye observe diiys,"
he says (Gal IV-10) "I am afraid of you, lest I
have bertowed upon you labor In vain." As
Chrixtlons all days wore alike holy. To tbe Colon
sians Paul writes. " Let no man judge you In
meat or in drink or in refpect of a holy day or of
the new moon or of the Sabbath days." What, no
Sabbatb day, no time to be devoted exclusively
to worship ? What w ill become of the Church if
all days are alike? Ark these questions of Paul
and Jeans. If the Sabbath writ an Institution of
so much importance as people would make us
believe, tbe very like and soul of the Church, why
then did not tbe founder ar.d builder of tbe Church.
Christ and Paul, give directions for such a day.
If a sail in a boat from Honolulu to Ewa is lanta
mount to a sail direct into hell, why did they not
say a word about so momentuous a subject ?
Because tbe Sabbath observsnco was only a na
tional commemoration dsy, a kind of Fourth of
July, which expired when the -Roman armlea over
ran Judea, Bowed salt on Jerusalem, aud scattered
the tribes to tbe four winds. Paul settles the
question definitely, XIV. Romans, In that great
charter of Individual liberty. "One matt
esteemeth one day above another, another ea
tectnetb every day alike. Let every man be fully
persuaded in bis own mind. He that regardeth the
day regardeth it unto the Lord, and be tbat le
gardeth not the daj, to the Lord he does not re
gard it." Here is a repudiation of all Church au
thority. I beg a small space in your Deit for
tbe conclusion. C'ohmopolitak.
