The only item of interest we note io commercial circle i9
the jrotrlsg scarcity cf silrer coin, which in a somewhat seri
ous ioconr sience. The scarcity however, cannot last lonp,
a we are within a month's call cf California, where
si!rer coin is qaolel at 3ffi5i per cent, discount, while in
London the best pnee obtainable for silver is 52d. The caue
of the scarcity here just at present may be fairly traceable to
the drain on the metropolis earned by the opening op of new
sugar enterprises on the other islands and the paying ci ad
ranres and wages to laborers. From Jan It. 1377 to Feb 6th
1S78 (as we learn through the courtesy of Collector General
V F Allen) there arrived here, 1556 adult Chinese, (including
say 100 women) and 47 children, about all of whom have rf.ne
to work under contract on the plantations. The advance
wages paid to these will not fall far short of $100,000, proba
bly in silver, and those who know the characteristics of the
Chinese will readily understand that money paid lo them does
not at once go into general circulation.

his country; and v.c claim that if divorce be al
lowable at all by law, the riht should not be
placed beyond the reach of the poor by exhorbit
ant charges which they cannot meet. Same may
think that this class of our people have no time
to be unhappy, and that their married life id one
continued round of sunthine and joy, and that
bickering, 6trife, cruelty, and conjugal infidelity
arc to be found only among the wealthier classes
of the community; among those 44 who are well
able to pay for the expense of being released from
a rueful bargain, or the consequences of a capri
cious taste." We have lived many years among
the Hawaiian people, and claim to have a fair
knowledge of their private life, and their general
social state, and we declare, without hesitation,
that such a view is utterly unfounded, and alto
gether contrary to the truth. How often does a
tlit for divorce come before our courts in which
ie parties are found to be of the wealthy or
ell-to-do classee of the people ? Are not all the
uuganie, or nearly all, to be found among the
poor? This being so, our assertion that the costs
are too high stands good; and if divorce, for rea
son, is a legal right, to be claimed by those ag
grieved, wc think those costs should be reduced.
It is true that the Police Courts can take cogniz
ance of cases of adultery, assault and battery, or
other personal injury. We will suppose a wom-
bcrs of the stripe that is now-a-days returned.
Wc hope to hear that Mr. Bickerton is elected
in Ilamakua, Hawaii, Messrs. Kuudscn and
Rice on Kauai, and Mr. Castle at Kohala.

The Percsia. This noble iron ship, which we
previously announced as dae from Hongkong, ar
rived at this port on Sanday morning last, after a
passage of 21 days from that port. She brought
some freight and a few passengers for Honolulu, and
sailed for Callao on Monday morning. We are in
formed that the Peruia has accomodations for from
1,500 to 2,000 passengers. She was to have carried
1,500 on the present voyage to Callao, but for some
hitch with the authorities at Hongkong. Some 150
tons of coal were required here for this ship, but the
native 44 longshoremen " refused to work after mid
night at coaliog for less than S5 each. Some were
however subsequently got for a less sum. By such
extravagant demands the natives will erelong find
that they have 44 killed the goose that laid the golden
egg," for the Chinese will surely take their places in
This Order of Temperance has again become an
established fact in this Kingdom, and has a great
luture of usefulness before it, if the Lodges now
organized come up to their duty with zeal and fi
delity to the obligations they have assumed. Tkis
result, which promises so much good, is entirely
due to the faithful and unwearied labors of the
Rev George Morris, D. G. W. C. T., of the Grand
Lodge of California, who during the past three
months, has visited the principal Islands of the
group, and organized ten Lodges, the number re
quired for a Grand Lodge. The Lodges now es
tablished are distributed as follows :
Uilo.IIawsii 1 Queen Emma, Honolulu.... 1
Lahaina, Maui 1 , Kawaiahao, " ....1
Wailuku, IjKaumakapili, .... 1
Makawao, " 1 1 Paluma, ....
Ultima Thule, Honolulu ... lEhukai, Waialua 1
The requisite number of Lodges having been
established, steps have been taken to secure a
Charter for a Grand Lodge, and the application
for such Charter goes forward to-day by mail to
the proper authorities, and, when granted by the
R. W. Grand Lodge of North America, places the
Order in this Kingdom on an equality with that of
other countries, and under the direct jurisdiction
of the head of the Order, entitling it to representa
tion in its Supreme Council. This will be a great
advantage to the Brotherhood here, as it will give
them a status abroad they could not otherwise en
joy, and enable them to control all ordinary mat
ters connected with the Order without reference
abroad, with its attendant delay.
On Tuesday evening last, a District Lodge (a
grade between the Grand and Subordinate Lodges,
composed of Delegates from the latter), was organ
ized and put in moner wmkinrr n-.w ti,;
Lodge is adapted to duties which can be more
properly performed by it than the other branches
of the Order, and is the nearest authority to the
Subordinates, and to which they have to refer all
matters in the first instance.
At the last meeting of Queen Emma Lodge, held
on Thurday evening, matters of much interest to
tue. oreuireii came up. We may mention that a

Is i-KLviots issues we have reiitatedly and
earnestly called attention to the danger that
feurcly threatens the country if the policy is per
sisted in of bringing here only male Chinese
immigrants. The correctness of our position on
this point will hardly he disputed by any one,
and wc hope and expect to see some legislation
on the subject in the coming session of the
Assembly. But there is another view of this
Chinese immigration subject which has not yet
been alluded to by the press, but which will ere
long force itself upon public attention. Ifnw

fail into their hands, quite to the exclusion of
other nationalities. Thue, as things are going,
there will be but two clashes of Americans or Eu

ekilled mechanics whom the planters mu6t neces

Chinese Xew Yeab. This, the chief anniversary
and festival of car Chinese population, commenced
last Saturday and closed on TuesJaj the leading
residents of that nationality entertaining their friends
io the most hospitable manner. The Koon-IIe
brings oat the Celestial in his most favorable light,
for he always keeps opea house and welcomes all in
the warmest manner. Although he dispenses his
hospitality with a lavish band on this occasion, it :8
rare to see him intoxicated oo tie street. Occasion
ally aa exception to this remark occurs, as, for in
stance, on Satarday morning, when we saw a young
man passing along Merchant Street, the effect of
whose early devotions to Bacchus were . plainly -risible.
A good deal of intoxication prevailed amongst
the Hawaiians during the festival, but hew much of
it is chargeable lo the occasiou wc cannot ear. We
bear that at Kaaeohe, (where a large numter of rice
plantations, cultivated by Chinamen, is Iccated) a
very large proportion of the natives were to be seen
ra Sataraiy more tx k?s intoxicate..
Such is the prospect for the future of Hawaii
nci. Trompt and wise legislation is needed to
save the Hawaiian race and preserve Hawaiian
independence ; but where shall we look for it?
We took occasion, two weeks ago, to speak
very briefly of the Divorce Laws of this King
dom, and to express the opinion that, for what
seemed to us good reasons, a very great modifica
cf them was desirable. Those reasons we still
consider good, and quite sufficient to justify us
in again calling public attention to the subject,
even at the risk of wearying our readers by too
frequent a return to a matter which is of the
utmost importance to all classes of the commun
ity. In our former remarks we took the ground
that the costs of a suit for divorce were too great.
We repeat it, that in our opinion they are far

The steamer, due to-morrow morning, will bring
full returns from Maui and Hawaii. Up to the

Mr. Malo, we believe, has had the advantage of
a fair edu&itiun and understands to some extent
the English language, but he is reputed to be a
thorough radical if not an agrarian.
