Kauai, have been sued by a Chinaman, and damages
laid at $1,000, " for injury and loss to him the said

pay better than even sugar to go regularly into the

A Bonus. The Assembly has voted the sum of
$500 to Mr. A. W. Bush, in consideration of his
efforts to introduce foreign fish in the streams of
these Islands to which enterprise we have referred
cn previous occasions. Some cf the young salmon
trout at Ewa, on this Island, are now four or five
inches long. The 500 voted is about one-fourth of
the amount which has been expended by Mr. Busb.
July 31st The day on which, in 1843, Admiral
Thomas, of the British Navy, restored the sovereignty
of these Islands to Kamehameha III, reversing the
high-handed act of Lord George Paulet of the pre
vious month of February was for many years the
holiday of Hawaii nei. But during the reign of
Kamehameha V the cEcial observance of the day
was discontinued, the reason being that it was an
annually recurring reminder cf an act of injustice by
a British commander. And was iis observance not
equally a commemoration of the prompt act cf resto
ration of the flag by another British commander, the
gallant Thomas T The 11th of June, in commemora
tion cf Kamehameha I, ha? taken the place of the
31st cf July as a national holiday.
As a bule, we prefer to see the law appealed to for
the purpose of correcting offenses against public
morality; but we can easily imagine cases that re
quire a more summary process than slow, legal
formalities would be able to afford. The following
may have been one of them. The particulars are
given in a letter from a correspondent at Wailuku,
under date of July 27:.
"The only item of news we have is that ,
the irrepressible, was tarred and sanded' by the
Wailuku boys a week ago to-night, as a punishment
for attempting a crime against the flesh on Hale
akala. Sand is an improvement on feathers. They
did it horribly Veil; took him out of bed about mid
night, gagged bim, led him off, made him confess,
and then put on the artistic touches and gave bim
notice that the second coat would be ready on the
following evening. It is superfluous to say that he
was as far as a hofce could carry bim by that time."
SPEECH OF HON. WALTER M. GIBSON
N)n the Commemoration of lenlcuulal of DN-
Hon. W. M. Gibson. Of all the members cf the
present Legislature, none is more worthy of promi
Dent mention than the Hon. Walter Murray Gibson
He has labored indefatigably for the interests of his
constituents and of the country at large; and we can
safely say that no other foreign-born gentleman in
the House has wielded the same influence, or gained
the confidence of the native Hawaiian members to
the extent that he has done. This has been owing
to the sincerity, frankness, courtesy, and earnestness
with which he has advocated his opinions, and the
clearly unselfish zeal which has characterized bis
whole conduct throughout an arduous session. He
will leave us in the next steamer for America, to be
absent for a year, on a visit to his native State. The
warmest wishes for his welfare will accompany him
on his journey, and a sincere hope for his safe return
to the land of Lis adoption.
Tue Concebt. Our readers are aware that, an
industrious and persevering effort is in progress,
under the patronage of their Majesties and their
Royal Highnesses the Princesses Liliuokalani and
Likehke, to raise an adequate fund for the rebuild
ing of Kaumakapili Church. This effort has been
in the form of a series of concerts, which have been
generally well attended. The most successful of the
series took place last Saturday night at the church.
t when the large space was filled to its utmost capacity
;by the fashion and beauty ot the metropolis.
5tis Majesty's entrance was greeted by the entire
auUrvnce rising to their feet and standing till he
reached his seat. He was accompanied by their
Excellencies the Ministers of rinance and roreign
Affairs, and the Chamberlain. Mons. Pernet of the
French Commission, was escorted to a seat near
the King. Of the concert, we can speak only in
terms of the most unqualified praise. The duett,
O, gently breathe," was very sweetly sung, as also
the chorus, "I've no mother, now." The solo,
"Aloha to Hawaii," was sug iu a superior man
ner, and the solo, " Beautiful Isles of the Sea,"
by II. R. II. Mrs. Dominis, elicited loud and animat
ed plaudits. " If I had but a thousand a year " was
well sung. The gem of the evening, Inii au ia oe,' '
was very finely rendered by their Royal Hignesses,
and was so thoroughly appreciated by the audience
that the demand for an encore fairly shook the
building, and the illustrious performers won all

assert that the performance, in all the pieces sung,

Ir. President :
I do not wish to see the Assembly of 187 close
without saying a word in behalf of the commemora
tion of the introduction of this archipelago to the
knowledge of the civilized world, one hundred years
I shall regret, and I feel that all thoughtful friends
of Hawaiians would regret, to have the centennial
of discovery pass by without notice. I urged the
consideration of this matter upon the attention of the
Assembly of 187G, as the Hon. Noble Kaai can well
testify. But Ministers cf that time were adverse,
and no action was taken. However, I could not let
this matter rest, and revived its discussion at
the beginning of this centennial year. I and my
colleague of Lahaina commemorated thU event at
Lahaina, the ancient seat of the old Kings of Ha
waii, on the 18th day of January last, when we had
the worthy Noble (Moebonua) to lead us, whose
vacant chair in this Assembly we all look upon with
regret, We spoke there to a few Hawaiiaos of the
triumphs of civilization during the past hundred
years, and of the hopes for Hawaii for better days
yet to come. And now I want to raise my voice
again before the year closes, and before this Assem
bly adjourns to prompt you, Nobles and Represen
tatives, to speak oa this matter for the whole
There are those who will sneer at this commemora
tion, as there are many to be found who will mock
at every sentiment and every hope that is not im
mediately productive of some result in the chape of
dollars. But what do I ask you to commemorate
. - .. , t - ' T . .
you, Hawaiian legislators i iou, xkepresentauves
of the people, gathered here in orderly assemblage
in this noble hall, panoplied with the insignia, the
crown, the sceptre, and banner of free and en
lightened government, and presenting a spectacle of
senatorial deliberation andecornm which will com
pare favorably with parliamentary proceedings iu
many older and more cultured civilizations T What
is there to commemorate? What shall I say?
What but present a contrast with which your own
minds must be busy between this year, and this
scene, and what may have happened here one hun
dred years ago. We can imagine in 1778. on the
site where we are assembled, a crowd of half-naked
savages, mingling their loud, discordant cries with
the dissonant beat cf the ancient rude drum. The
smoke for a sacrifice ascends, and we can picture an
uplifted club falling upon a human victim to beat
out his brains, where now the mallet of our worthy
President only strikes to preserve peace and good
wilL This, O. Hawaiians ! thi stride from savage
disorder to our present order, is something worthy
of your commemoration, I don't care what else may
have happened !
The past hundred years have brought many losses
and sorrows to the people of these Islands, but let us
glance at the blessings that have come with the cen
tury. These witnesses, looking down from the walls
of our legislative ball, will help us to review the past.
See the ancient hero, in his royal feather cloak the
Puhikapa of the olden warrior time. He began our
century with savage war and massacre, and yet he
was chiefly the destroyer of cruelty and superstition,
and waded through human blood for the sake of en
during peace within bis native isles. He was among
the first to greet the Discoverer Cook on board bis
ship in 1778. and the young Hawaiian chiefs great
mini well appreciated the mighty changes that must
follow after the arrival of the white strangers. He
met destiny with the mind cf a philosopher anij
patriot, and Kamehameha, the barbarian Conqueror,
welcomed the new era with the spirit of aa en
Next look upon Liholiho, his son, the bold, heal
strong Prince, who goes on with the work of peace
and enfranchisement, and marks a noble period in
Hawaiian history. Need we glance at anything more
than the breaking of the tabus, and especially the
restoration of Hawaiian women to aa equal con
dition with the rest of their race. To be a woman
before, was to be an animal feeding in an outer ken
nel; but Liholiho tramples on the cruel superstition,
and the woman of these isles joins her lord and her
lover at the feast and may rest on his bosom as she
Now we will gaze on the benevolent face cf Uaui
keaouli, he who portioned out bis dominions to his
people, and who abdicated absolute sovereignty in
behalf of the majesty of law; and Richards, Haalilio,
Lee, Judd. and Wyilie helped worthily to illustrate
the enlightened reign of Kamehameha HI.
And next behold the fice of the second Liholiho,
the courteous and gentlemanly Prince. How his
heart yearned for the life and welfare cf his people !
This love of a Hawaiian King is illustrated by our
noble hospital, which will stand as a proud monu
ment cf the benevolent Kamthameha IV, and bis
Gracious Spouse, who is still with us.
We will look now upon the resolute fice cf the
King with the strong arm. He gave what Hawaii
needs, a vigorous administration; and it will be well
for her to be led by a spirit of authority, so forcibly
illustrated by Kamehameha V.
Who comes next? Where i the noble fice of

We have neglected cur opportunity for an eihibi

In proposing this resolution, I have Lot made up
my uiinj as to the shape in whc:i our commeruora.
ticn should manifest ite'.f. Some would appreciate
a utilitarian monument, such as a prominent light
house; others, a bunding for mstructiou cr a mueutu;
and I highly appreciate the utilitarian view, yet I am
inclined to favor a work of art. And what is the
most notable event, and character, apart from dis
covery, within this century, for Haw aiians to com
memorate .' hat else but the consolidation of the
archipelago by the hero Kamehameha ? The warrior
chief cf Kohal towers fir above any other one of bis
race in all Oceanica. His character, in view of bis
remarkable situation, will ere long largely command
the attention of thoughtful and noble minds of all
lands. This appreciation of his character I hope to
promote with my feeble pen; and his fame will be
raised up as a proud memento for Hawaii, there
fore let Hawaiians, especially you Hawaiian Nobles
and Representatives, lift up your hero before the eyes
of the people, not only in story, but in everlaatiug
bronze. Thus enlightened nations commemorate
their heroes and good men. You have never yet
contributed anything towards such a commemora
tion. Ibe paintings on these walls were gifts, or
contributions Irom various sources. The British
Parliament and the American Congress, and other
representative bodies of enlightened States, have
each voted hundreds of thousands of dollars for
monuments to their great chiefs and teachers, such
as Napoleon, Wellington, Washington, Howard,
Penn, and Rousseau. The Hawaiian Legislature
must now prove its enlightenment in a similar rec
ognition of the heroes of its history. Let us begin
in this our centennial year, and vote a liberal sum,
not merely to commemorate a period, but a hero.
Such money is well spent Some would say to
you, that money expended for a non-productive pur
pose like this, or as was said the other day iu the
Assembly, for the support of lepers, and other help
less people, was money thrown into the sea. But I
don't think so. Is money spent for love thrown
away? Such investment is the kind of treaiuse that
is laid up ia heaven. Or what we do for honor's
sake is it a waste? Is not life something more
than meat and driuk, and the covering on oar backs ?
Yes, and I tell you that money spent in the way of a
public spirited commemoration will come back to us
an hundredfold in higher honor and consideration
from others. We have, I know, portioned out all our
public treasure, nay more than our estimate of re
ceipts, for salaries, and highways, and for education,
and the sick; and I am glad that you have done so,
and that I took part in the liberal appropriations of
this Legislature. We have done no more than what
a reasonable estimate of our resources would war
rant; and if our income will not meet all that we
propose, an intelligent Ministry will know where it
is best to limit tho expenditure. But after all, we
must try to reserve a little for the sake of patriotism.
and history, and honor, and for an expression cf our
I have sail only five thousand dollars, but I trust
that my proposal will be amended to double the sum.
And now I have made my appeal. I leave it especial
ly with you, Hawaiian Nobles and Representatives.
As you care for your country, your nationality, and
your Independence, you will heed it; and let your
patriotism find expression in a monument to com
memorate the most notable event in your history, and
tne greatest of your heroes.
1 1 is Excellency J. M. Kapena, Minister for Fortie
Affairs, supported the resolution with some eloquent
remarks, aud the resolution to appropriate $5,000
for a monument to commemorate the centennial of
discovery was passed by a unanimous vote. This
amount was.subsequently amended to $10,000.

The Yield of our Cane Fields.
To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Jidverliter :
Sir : It is a long time nince I have given any
sugar statistics to the precs. Indeed so many new
Gelds with extraordinary yields have beeu report
ed, that we almost foil that anything less than four
or five tons to the acre will hardly pay for the
working; the following will be interesting to
sugar planters, tnougu others may bo able tore
port larger yields. Adjacent to the sugar-mill
buildings of the Kohala Sugar Company lies a
field of nearly 200 acres, from which the third crop
is now being taken. The first crop yielded from

As the yield of the juice cocked in the vacaum

steam and open fire, the difference iu favor of the
vacuum pan being fu'tl 37 per cent., it would be in
teresting to hear from ctLcrs who have had ex

matter. The vacuum pn, it is conceded, will give
a better yield and lighter color than tne open train,
and an approximation, even, to the actual gain by
its use would form reliable data to guide the planter
as to the expediency of substituting it for the less ex
pensive cpen train. Facts tcnJing to shew the ad
vantage of the one over the other will ba useful to
our planters, and I hope thit any such may be given
to the press for the publio Leutht.

discoveries in section ot Hawaii where water 1 o
much needed for agricultutal and twariulaciuring
purpose. The water supply referred to Is sufficient
and can be used lor a saw mill, without lessening
the amount conveyed to thi plantation.
The proprietor of the Xaalehu sugar mill, al
Waiohluii. has lately built a water flume ot twelve
inch flume-boards, which commenced work on the
20th inst., and i now in daily ue conveying sugar
cane from the upland field to the mill, a distance (
of two or three miles, as la doue la tha Hilo 4ia.
trict. and as lumber l often flamed In California.
It will dispense with a great amount of cx and
mule teaming heretofore required In fane carry

atious services on plantation. It was really a
novel sight to see this eight inch stream spouung
from the flume, elevated twenty feet ovei head, and
depositing the stalks beside ibe powerful rollers,
which appear always hungry for more cane to '
crush, while everybody was looking on delighted
with this triumph of the perseverance and enter
prise which have made it succe, in a district
w here water has heretofore been scarce, although
the supply in the mountains boa been for centuries
abundant, but not utilized.
Wbat I have written ought to enoouraga renewed

lands, where it rains almost daily. As these springs ''

Tho remark of our correspondent, that ' Co
one should bo surprised tu hear of inort import
ant discoveries " of water on Hawaii, reminds
us of a sourco of tippl that lias nut jet appar
ently been thought of. The two great mountains
of that Island Mauua Loa and Mautm Kra
rear their summits into tho region of eternal
snow, 14,000 feet above the nen level. In Hit
summer months and during the sometimes pro
tracted reasons when there are no rains, those
mountains appear from the seashore to he lre of
snow ; but tlio luct is. (as will be toaliBed bv
those who have tnado tho ascent iuJuly) that
there aro always to be found great bodies or snow
n tho ravines near the summit. During; the daj
these snow banks tiro constantly melting, souue
timcH forming considerable pond where the rocks
arc sufficiently compact to retain tho water, but

dcIich ia diameter, that inccwnnllj spouted up
from tho jiuhorhoi, and we were told by the na

Card from Dr. Rodgeri.
On the 2'Jth ol July, lion. W. O. Smllk, rUIng In
the Legislature to a " question of privilege," pro
ceeded to tnako cerlaiu peisonal statements and
explanations concerning a former debate on the
subject of the Queen's Hospital, and at the close
of bis remarks, as reported In the OazcVt of July
31st, spoke as follows :
I will add that tho communication of Ur,CT.
Rodgers pnbllxhed in tho L'owvi.nf ui.'Apvi.itrM it '
of July 20th, did great injustice to tho Hon. Mr.
Bishop. In referiltiii to the atalement which I
made ol this case, the action ol Mr. Bishop i very
much misrepresented. The communication re
presents that be opposed an Investigation Af the
statement which I made. The direct contrary Is
the fact. He expressed very -inphalrraIly bis de
sire that a thorough investigation should be made.
Wbat he opposed y a. tho reference to a com
mittee, of the Appropriation Bill of aid for the
Queen's Hospital, with the amendment which I,
had proposed, that tho appropriation should be
made provided the medical supervision of Ike boa
pital bo placed under the charge ol a board of not
less than three physicians."
I have certainly no desire to misrepresent Mr.
L'Uhop or do him any injustlci in any way, and I
fail to see. wherein I bave done so, 1 L fact" id
the cast us I understand them were substantially
as follows :

lowed, Mr. Smith, in a.ippoit of bin motion, made
a specific charge of inhumauily and neglect of

Smith's motion to a Committee to investigate and
Fourth Hon. C. H. Bishop opposed this motion
and voted against St.
Njw to far as Mr. Bi-Lop's course is concerned,
it makes very little ttiflereoee whether lr. .-'mlth's -charges
were made before or after Mr. Castle made '
bis motion to refer. They were made at some tlmo
during the debate and before the vote was taken,
and 1 Ulieve it I not disputed that Mr. Bihhcp. ;
voi. d against the motion. Had Mr. C.tsUe's motion, i
for reference to a Committee been carried, as it
probably would bave bet n had Mr. Liidiop sup
ported it, the practical ell. et as J supposed abd

matter, including Mr. Smith's motion and the
charge by which he sought to uui it, to a body

it i scarcely credible thai a Committee of Ike

Mr. Cattle's motion to refer, he voted against Ibe

would have been secured. Furthermore, Lad bis
