Brig ' Morning Stab." The Boston A deer User
March 4, has the following : Captain Isaiah Bray,
a gentleman well known to the ship-owners of Bos
ton for his courage and superior seamanship, aud
who was one of the chief ushers at the Tabernacle
during the Moody and Sankey revival, has received
the appointment to the command of the missionary
brig Morning Slur, stationed at Honolulu, and wlli
leave for that place with his family on Monday."
Trans-Pacific Caule. Captain U. C. Moreno,
who has been prominently active iu forwarding
the project of a cable from San Francisco to Japan
via Honolulu, writes to us that he intends shortly
to visit these islands on business connected with
the cable. We trust that our government and
people will afford the captain every possible en
couragement and facility.
Koiiala Plantation. A correspondent from that
place, referring to "Editorial Correspondence" iu
our issue of April 27, says : " I think it may
safely be said that the Kohala Plantation is the
largest in the district, and has-the largest mill. For
several years past it has planted each year generally
a little upward of 200 acres, which, with an equal
amount of ratoous, has made it a yearly crop of
about 400 acres."

the present stock will be disposed of at the lowest

Transit of Merccrt. Mr. C. J. Lyons, Assistant
Government Surveyor, furnishes the following figures
of the transit of Mercury on Monday last :
Interior eeress, 6d. Ch. Urn. 60s. Exterior egress, 6d. Oh.
14m. 24s. Telescope used, two-inch object-class, and power
60. Time by Rogers from Ehtner's transit instrument, and
verified in Ihe afternoon by sextant from Government build
ine on sea horizon. Atmosphere hazy and observations rather
difficult, as the sun was not over six degrees from the zenith,
and the telescope not equitorially mounted. The Ulterior
egress is doubtless the more reliable of the two, eserially as
the clouds cleared away just at this occurrence. A slislit
elongation or excrescence was noticed on the northwest side
about 11 o'clock.
New Stock Col. W. F. Allen imported by the
. V. Almy from San Francisco on the 3d inst.,
two handsome Jersey clves a bull and a heifer
for his ranch on Hawaii. The following are the
pedigrees of these fiue-lred animals: Bull calf.
fawn and white; dropped Oct. 19, 1877; sire Gov
ernor, by Pert; dam Princess Eliza, by Pilot, im
ported; grandarn Princess, imported. Heifer calf,
fawn and grey; dropped Jan. 9, 1878; sire Keystone,
by Touchstone; dam Juno, by Colin; g. d. Black
noso by Tinker; g g. d. Young Tiney, by Byse;
g g.g. d. Tiney, by Fowler. Juno was bred by Her
Majesty Victoria at the Prince Albert farm, Windsor,
England, and imported to California by Capt.
Knowles of the Glory of ihe Sea.
The ' Wilmington." This fine steamship of the
P. M. Company, which takes the place of the St.
Paul, and is considerably larger than that vessel,
arrived on Monday last in eight days and twenty-two
hours from San Francisco, under command of our
old fti.-nd Captain A. Fuller, for some years past
well and favorably known as master of the D. C.
Murray and other sailing packets between Honolulu
and the coast. The Wilmington is an iron pro
peller, ten years old, originally built for the Ha
vanah trade, and has airy and comfortable accom
modations for fifty cabin passengers. She sails on
the return voyage to San Francisco at 11 o'clock
this forenoon, with some fifty passengers and a full
cargo cf island produce.
Hawaiian Amateur Minstrels. This company
composed of young native Ilawaiians, gave a per
formance at the Royal Hawaiian Theatre on Wednes
day evening last, to a full house. His Majesty the
ing and H. Pi. II. the Princess Liliuokalani, and
Gov. Pominis honored the Troupe with their pres
ence. The proceeds of the performance were for the
benefit of the funds of Mechanic Engine Co. No. 2,
and the amount realized was about $200. For
amateurs, whose daily avocations prevent the fre
queot and careful rehearsals of professionals, our
Ilawaiians did remarkably well in their imitations of
the plantation darkey, and they sent the audience
home in good humor after an evening of hearty en
joyment. They will give another of their mirth-
provoking entertainments this evening, witn an en
tirely new bill. We understeod that the troupe pur
pose shortly to visit Maui and Hawaiian to give the
good folks of the outer districts a specimen of na
tive Hawaiian talent.
Our record to-Jy logins with the proceedings
of Saturday last, the fifth day of the session,
which was characterized ty the passage of a meas
ure uo doubt pregnant with interest tj country
members a resolution appropriating SrlS.OoO fr
payment of expenses of the session, which includes
$'200 each for the ltcprcseutitives, exclusive of
mileage. A resolution was also adopted instructing
the Secretary tu be economical iu expending this
sum of $15,000 ; and a resolution to provide each
member with postage stamps was modestly nei
tiveJ. (We are virtuous, messieurs ; but by utid
bye there shall be cakes and ale enow ) Hon. Mr.
Keau (Honolulu) gave notice of a bill to tax beef
cattle 25 cts. per heal ; also a bill to repeal the
poll tax. Hon. Mr. Kuihtlani (of the Noble)
introduced a bill to re-apportion the representa
tion of the people. Hon. Mr. Smith, (Wailuku)
read a bill to repeal the Act of 187G, iclatiug to
the asscsment and collection of taxes ; aul a bill
to authorize the appointment cf a Police Magistrate
for Wailuku. Hon. Mr. Bickertou (IIamaku:i) gave
notice of a bill to repeal Chap. 16, Laws of 1S7G
in regard to bail taken ty Police and District
Justices. Hon. Mr. Kapahu (Kau) gave rotice
of a bill to amend Sec. 112o, Civil Code ( Master g
and servants). A resolution was adopted authoriz
ing the appointment of Inspectors of boilers through
out the Kingdom. (Kather loose, this. A care
fully drawn Act is requisite, if anything.)
Uu Monday a good portion tf the tuoi uiug was
taken up iu discussing the report of the Judiciary
committee ou the petition of one Naaikauua, who
it appears some sixteen years ago deposited the tutu
of $70 with Mr. Wiltze, the government surveyor
(since dead) in part or whole payment for a piece
cf government laud ou Hawaii. Ihe man, being
probably iguoraut, had never applied for a Koyal
Patent and now tiuds that he has no title to the
land on which he has been living so long. The
committee recommended that the above euni be
refunded by government. Ministers objected to
the recommendation of the report, for the reasons
that the man had slept so long on his claim and
that there was no proof that the money bad ever
been received by government. But this was.

of the Committee was adopted by a Ia'-ge majority
Hon. Mr. Halstcud rend a first time n bill to amend
seca. CI and 02 of the Act of 1870, "To
regulate the proceedings iu Criminal Cases
Hon. Mr. Bickertou (Ilamakua) read a first time
a bill to repeal Chap. l.'J of the laws of 1870, and
to re-enact Sec. 073 cf the Civil Code. (The object
is to forbid any person entitled to a share in any
fine, forfeiture or penalty, from being used ns a
witness on the trial.) The Attorney General'
bill to amend the divorce law, was read a first
The usual host of petitions on all sorts of subjects
from all parts of the country was presented on
Tuesday morning, among wbich were two asking
that the lepers be released from Molokai ; and one
(from Kauai) that circuit judges be empowered
to grant divorces. Hon. Mr. Kaai (of the Noble )
gave notice ol a till to lorbnj the introduction
of Chinese laborers into the Kingdom. J lie bill to
repeal the poll tax, was after a lengthy discussion
in Committee of the whole, indefinitely postponed.
Among the petitions presented on Wednesday was
one from Chinese in Honolulu, praying that the sale
of opium may be licensed ; and one from Puna, Ha
waii, that lepers reufain in their own districts. Hon.
Mr. Smith (Wailuku) rea 1 first time a bill respect
ing roads and bridges on Maui. A resolution was
introduced and referred to the Committee on Foreign
Relations, asking for copies of the correspondence
of the Hon. II. A. P. Carter respecting treaty rjeco-
tiations with Great Britain, and also in regard to tho
proposed immigration from tho East Indies. The
member for Laliaina (Hon. Mr. Gibson) seconded
the reference of the correspondence to a Special Com
mittee, as he considered the Standing Committee tin
Foreign Aflairs had been rather negligent in this
matter as well as the Minister for Foreign Aflairs.
He would call the attention of the Assembly to the
important reports of a former Minister for Foreign
Aflairs, the illustrious Wyllie, and devoted friend of
this Kingdom, which were invariably presented,
along with reports of other Departments, at the
opening of the session. Aud now we had grave rea
sons for desiring the fullest of information. The
expression trom the Iliroue in the address to the
Assembly, which lutunated that the operation of the
treaty of reciprocity with America had infringed up
on our treaty relations with Great Britain, had
awakened a feeling of great anxiety iu the minds of
all devoted to the maintenance of the independence
of the Hawaiian Kingdom. In the negotiation of the
treaty of reciprocity we had indeed been heedless of
the third article of our treaty wi'h Great Britain.
and he must also ml 1 that wc had disregarded the
twenty-fifth article of our treaty with Franco, an
article that cannot be denounced. Shall we be care
less of our relations with these two great, friendly,
and guaranteeing Powers? No lover of this country.
nor mend of Hawaiian inntlcponiJence, will feel so.
Therefore we must have all the information on this
subject ; and no part or abstract ought to satisfy us,
or will satisfy the public mind. There is now a bill
before this Assembly to abolish the twenty-five per
cent, dutv, and as Chairman of the Committee on
Finance, Le must say that the Committee will re
quire the lulle.st information in order to rightly
judge how far British, and other foreign interests.
have been affected by the operation of our tariff, and
to take intelligent action thereon. We have been told
that a discretion must be exercised iu frivine or with
holding information as required by public interests.
lie uii not doubt that. But it was generally
the case, that information was mainly held back
because it might be damaging to Miuisters, and
they seldom will give any unless it was authorita
tively demanded by representatives of the people,
backed by a strong public openion. Information
in respect to our foreign relations should have
been laid at once before this Assembly in order to
allay exaggeration, and give reassurance to tho
country. But he regretted that ut this advanced
day in the proceedings of the Assembly, our Min
ister of Foreign Affairs had not yet opened his
mouth on any subject pertaining to his department.
Kemarks were also male on the same subject by
the Hon. Messrs W. O. Smith, Nawahi. Bickrrton
and others. On motion of Hon W. II. Castle
(Kohala) the Minister of Interior was requested
to furnish copies of agreement or ether documents
connected with the lease of the Hawaiian Hotel.
Hon. Mr. Kaiaikawaha (W'aialua) gave notice of
intention to bring in a bill making books tf ac
count legal in the English lancuaze onlv. Ihe
bill to repeat the Act of 187C, entitled "An Act
to increase the import duties upon certain goods,"
(2o per cent, and specific duties) was, on its
second reading, referred to the Finance Committee.
The bill to amend sec. 112.' Civil Code, (making
overseers on plantations eouallv liable with the
masters for any cruelty on or misusage of servant,)
was ordered to be engrossed and real a third tiu.
The first thing on Thursday morniLg was a
petition from Maui, that no more Chinese be cer-
mittel to come into the country : followed bv a
prayer from Hawaii that lepers Lc allowed to re
main at their homes. The Hon. Mr. Kapahu (Kau)
requested the Attorney General to state how long a
time a bound servant must be alment from servics
to constitute absenting under the law. and render
himself liable to suit by the master. He had
known eervants to be proceeded against who had
been absent but one hour. His Excellency said that
in his opinion, if a servant applied to the Court
for redress of grievance, that was not to be con
strued absenting himself from bervice, under the
law. On motion of Hon. Mr. Kaai (tf the Nobles)
the Attorney General was requested to explain,
throujh the newspapers, for the benefit of Justices
and of masters, what coostitutes absentation from
service under the law. Hon. Mr. Kaiaikawaha
(Waialua) gave notice of intention to bring in a
bill to send all Chinese out of the country on the
expiration of their terms of service. By resolution,
the hour of convening was changed from 10 a. rn.
to 1 p. m. every day, for the next fortnight.
Yesterday the report of the Board of Health was
under discussion, and its consideration occupied
the attention of the Afsembly during the raoit of
the session. We fchall find room for a omcwhat
extended account of the debate in our text.
To the. Editor of Ike J'ucljic Commercial Adi f i ,Vr ;
Sib: A friend in San Francisco, a borse-trainer
by profession, writes to me making inquiries as to.
what he can do down here with a good stud of hurnea.
He is a good trainer and breaker of Lorsej and
when I left San Francisco had a tiue stallion which
won a race there.
I do not know of a more reliable source to obtain
the desired information than through the col o rang of
your valuable paper, and by giving this your atten
tion you will confer a favor on
U. C. 8.
In reply to the above inquiry, we have to say,
that in our opinion there is not sufficient induce
ment to warrant a professional horse-trainer in
breaking up an establishment in Californii and
coming here with a "stud" or any consider tlo
number of horses. The demand for first-class Lorses
is quite limited here, for the sufficient reason that
we have as yet but few men of wealth, leisure
and " horsey " proclivities among our residents.

A MALICIOUS SLANDERER.

at the outset, that this " statement of the very In

by the authorities here, is a tissue of malicious false

and Admiral MurriV and their general courtesy Iu all Amer
icans win viait tho Hawaiian Kingdom."
The real facts in the case are these : Sheriff
Everett received information of the wreck of the
bark on Molokai, at 11 o'clock on the night of
January "0. He immediately hired a whaleboat,
and after loading it with provisions, started in it for
the wreck, having in the meantime called on Mr.
Turton, the owner of the tchoonrr .Yrffie Merrill,
lying at anchor in Laliaina Huads, aud obtained bit
consent to send that vessel to the scene of the wreck,
for the purpose of conveying the rhipwrccked peo
ple to Honolulu. At midnight, in an open boat, Mr.
F.verett put out from Lahaiua to cross the channel
between the islands of Molokai and Maui a- really
dangerous undertaking. As it wan, hii boat was
nearly swamped in entering the port on Molokai.
Theucc he proceeded to the wreck, on the north side
of the island, and rendered tho Captain and the
shipwrecked passengers and crew all the assistance
in his power, iu saving property aud making the
shipwrecked people comfortable. Tho same may be
said cf Mr. K. W. Meyer, a resident of Molokai. Mr.
Everett had hired horses to convey the shipwrecked
people some twenty miles to the port where Ihe
schooner was, and tho first disagreement bttwfru
hi tn and Captain llarkijos was because Mr. Everett
would not dismount one of tin sailors and make him
walk twenty miles iu order to pack ou a horse some
fancy articles that the Captain was desirous of trans
porting to Honolulu. This apparently email matter
(in which Mr. Everett was right) so embittered and
enraged Captain Haikncss that he publicly declared
that " He didn't min i having a gentlemanly pirate
put a pistol to bis breast, but that Everett was m
d d mean pirate, and he thought he went there only
to steal his (Hark tics-') wife's clothing she had
some silk dresses." Ou the 17th of March, Mr.
lUttwell, as counsel for Mr. Everett, udJressed Cap
tain Harkness (then in Honolulu) a note, to the
effect that he was instructed by Mr. Everett to sue
him for slander, unless immediate satisfaction was
given. As no answer was received, suit was
brought. The following day, Captain Darkness
culled at Mr. Hartwell's office, and said that he had
used hasty words of Mr. Everett, but had not called
him a pirate ; but that be would do whatever was
reasonable to settle. Mr. Hartwell tol l him his in
structions from Mr. Everett were tu discontinue the
cusc on Captain Haikncss signing a full apology and
paying 1 ML) as costs of suit. Harkness said lie
would sign any paper that Mr. Hartwell thought
was right, which would not compromise him too
much, hut would not pay a dollar. Mr. Hartwell
told him he regtette l any necessity for uit, aud
would much prefer not lo sue, as be should have to
... i i .i
cause tiie ( uptain s i upsjioi i to uu reiuiru, as i ne
law permits a plaiutiff'to prevent the departure from
the kingdom of a defeiiduut in a pending suit. Mr.
Hartwell did nothing further in regard to Mr. Hark-
a, a . S -
tics case, but rtturneu Mr. i.verett retainer, in
order to avoid any possible reflections that might be
ma le on himself as a tJovci nment officer, and thense-
forth Captain Haikncss had to deal with
Mr. Preston us council for Mr. Everett.
He was duly summoned Into Court to
answer the action for slauder, which, however, was
settled by Iih signing a it traction of the words
spoken und by paying costs incurred. He was Dot
detained here in consequence of that affair ; but bo
had a suit in Court brought by himself against the
Chinese charter rallies of the vessel. That case
was decided on the 1'Jthof March, after which no
opportunity occurred to leave for nan I rancisoo
until the 4 th of Aptil. when Captain Harkness sailed
in the SI. Paul. All the statements purporting to
have beeu made by HaiknesN to the Alia, of " two
nan tin, malicious annoyance," threats or bare)
treatment from the Attorney-General, tr any other
officer of this Government, arc false and puerile.
Mr. Everett has been connected with the office of
Sheriff of Maui for twenty-tun years, and sustains
liarncler in this community for honesty and truth
fulness, as well as for generosity of heart, that can
not be damaged by such snaila- U as Harknrss. Iu
conclusion, we are permitted to copy the following
letter front a geutlemtri who was passenger ou the
