To-day, August 3d, Mr. C. N. Arnold, Manager of Oo.
kala Plantation, has resigned bis position, snd left for
Honolulo. All reader probably know that a position as
manager of a plantation ia very important, and many
probably know that th. position was entrusted to him
solely for his able and thorough management. While
occupying bis position, Mr. Arnold has conducted the
affairs and transactions of the plantation proper and
wisely. All laborious and difficult undertakings at
tempted by him have been brought to a successful ter
mination, so far as endurance and usefnlnesu are con
cerned; to this all employees are perfectly willing to
gladly testify. His kindly and friendly intercourse with
the employees of this plantation have won their love and
esteem. We, the undersigned, believe that through his
recall or abdication the company has lost a faithful,
trusty, and honest servant, and the employees a kind
and honorably disposed manager. The kanaka servants
especially miss him, and are greatly disappointed by his
withdrawal from Ookala. It is said that Mr. Arnold has
a bad name aa being a hard, unscrupulous and dissatis
fled master, but the course pursued by the foreign and
native employees from this place will prove this to be
entirelv without foundation. When he made bis desire
known that he would take Lis departure from this plain'
tation, alohas and farewells were given mm repeatedly,
and some kanakaa even shed tears while bidding good
bye. While In contact with newly contracted natives he
may at first have made them discontented, but their dis
content gradually wore off, and gave place to esteem,
respect and admiration. We hope that wherever Mr.
Arnold may go, that success and prosperity may follow
in his footsteps. Herewith we will close, hoping to
make the public comprehend the true stste of affairs.
We, the undersigned, foreigners and kanakas, sppend
our signatures with the intentions of letting the peopl.
know tbst this letter to the public contains our each, and
Individual thoughts, and that It is a truthful and honest

From information received, we last week
blamed Deputy-Marshal Dayton for being parti
cipant in a flogging given to one of our young
hoodlums. We have since had tbe matter ex
plained to us, and we find that, although tbe Police
Station was tbe ground upon which the flogging
took place, Mr. Dayton was not cognizant of tbe
action. A certain medico in town was the casti-
gator, and that without Mr. Dayton's knowledge.

to the best of his ability in the appointment of a
successor to tbe deceased. Without any reflection
on the present subordinates we Hardly luinK mere
is but one fitted for the vacant post.
We note with regret that Mr. J. A. Buck, of
Oblandt it Co., who was shortly to have returned
to the Hawaiian Islands, to take charge of one of
Mr. Spreckels' plantation, was seriously injured
on Wednesday, the 28th ult., by being thrown

To the Editor of the Pacific Commercial Advertiser:
Sir : In all ages and in every oountry reformsrs
have had bard up-hill work, they may lecture, ad
vise and warn people of the consequeaoM sure to
follow errors of action, but not until calamity ac
tually overtakes some people will tbey take ths least
For tbe last five years I have notioed your con
stant appeals to tbe ' powers that be " and also to
the people of these beautiful islands, to adopt some
system of restriction on the constant aad increasing
influx of male Chinese, but up to the present time
all that has been written has bad oo effect In
checking the evil. Still they come; not io respect
able numbers, but in hordes. It baa been said that
to know people thoroughly we must lire nnder ths
same roof with them. Tbe writer has not actually
been in that position with regard to Chinese ; but
living on a plantation, he has them for very cear
neighbors and by observation and study finds that
the docile, law-abiding, industrious Chinese bavs
not the least desire or intention of faithfully serving
any white employer. Tbe ambition of every Celes
tial is, to be bis own "boasman" or at least to work
for one of bis own countrymen, which they will
earnestly do from dawn till dusk; whereas, while
laboring for whitemen, tbey travel to the cans fields
like snails, but return like racehorses, and this is tbe
class of laborers with which tbe country is being
flooded, and which are considered by some indis
pensable to our progress and prosperity.
On the Island of Maui scarcely a day passes which
does not bi ing along some member of tbe polios foros
iu search of absconding Chinese plantation laborers,
who are making quite a business of n-shipplag,
drawing large advances, then "clearing oat"
causing their employers much inoonvenienoe aad ex
pense, but when men get bit "over tbe fingers"
sharply a few times, then tbey begin to "wake up"
and this Chinese abomination will eventually
purify itself. I am, &o., Dab.
A Trip to Hawaii.
Rev. John Hemphill delivered a lecture on July
2C, at Calvary Presbyterian Church, oa tbe subject
of tbe Hawaiian Islands and their religions aspect.
The speaker said one of the dreams of his lifs had
been realized. He bad long desired to visit the
islands, and personally witness the effect of lbs mis
sionary work there. During bin recent vacation bs
had availed himself of an opportunity to do this, and
had become familiar with their manners, customs,
and mode of life, and could bear testimony that ths
ancient missionary spirit of the islands still lives.
He noticed particularly their quiet observance of ths
Sabbath, contrasting strongly with ths noisy picnic
parade Sundays of Ban Franoisoo.
A great deal had been written in regard to the
origin of tbe inhabitants of these islands. In his
opinion tbey were the descendants of the lost tribes
of Israel. lie bad arrived at this conclusion front a
critical study of their traditions, which, la many
respects, were wonderfully like tbe Mosaic record.
Hs illustrated this by citing their tradition ia regard
to the Fall of Man, tbe Deluge, and tbe fact that ths
first missionaries to the islands found ths Datives
practising tbe rite of circumcision. Tbess facts ia
duoed tbe speaker to believe that the natives were
the descendants of the lost tribes of Israel, or had
received their early religious instructions directly
from tbe Hebrews. The first missionaries to tb
islands reached there October 23, 1819. Tbey landed
at Honolulu ; found tbe natives without books,
paper, pens, or even a language, sitting like Turks
cross legged upon mats, immoral and degraded.
They could now read, write and cipher, aad tbey
have a language and literature. Tbey are sot
ignorant, as tbe proportion of inhabitants who can
read and write is greater than in New England.
This is all the work of tbe missionaries, aad It speaks
for itself. No such wonderful obangs has been
wrought elsewhere io the history of tbe world. Ths
natives are honest ; there is no theft there except
that perpetrated by ths mean whites from 8aa Fran
cisco ; tbey have ohurcbes and scboolbouses t the
converts to Christianity are sincere, and faithfully
attend to all religious duties. Tbey are vary gsnt-
rous. and in any religious enterprise, not only to
contribute their money, bat devote their time aad
labor to its achievement. Tbey give as substantial
aid in sending tbe Gospel to ths heathens. One
Church at li lo bss contributed more to missionary
work tbsn any Ckmrob in this city. Tbe lecturer
then gave n fine description of tbe harbor of Hono

Trade With China.
A report bus recently been circulated that tbe
China M'Tclium Steam Navigation Company con
template eMtaulihiiiny n line of steamers between
this port and China. The voyage between tbe
Orient and Ssu Fitincisco being a long one, and
at certain seasons of the year very hazardous,
there is considerable question whether in the pre
sent fleet of this company there are any vessels
sufficiently seaworthy for this trade. Tbe fleet at
present consists of twenty-five steamers capable of
active service. Of these six are built alter tb
style of tbe American river bouts, and have be a
only used for traffic on tbe Yangtse Uiver. Tbe
remaining nineteen are more available for coast
ing trade from March until about tbe middle of
September. None of these steamers are over
1.000 tons, and hence cannot carry sufficient coal
to enable them to undertake a long voyage. Last
year the Hocbung made a voyage to Honolulu
and was obliged to carry about 800 tons of coal Id
tbe bold. Sbe carried about 52 tons of cargo and
300 passengers. Sbe is the only vessel ia tbe fleet
capable of steaming a long aea trip. She steamed
at tbe time twenty-seven days, burning twelve
tons of coal, and made an average of eight and a
half knots per hour. Tbe distance between Cali
fornia and Yokohama Is 6.000 miles, and at this
rate of speed it would take thirl r dava ta accom
plish tbe trip. Her carrying capacity would also
be much reduced, owing to tbw great quantity of
fuel she would be obliged to carry. Such being
tbe condition of this fleet, unless tbe China Mer
chants Steam Navigation Company purchase suit
able steamers, an opposition in this trade need
hardly be expected. S. F. Ctironicle, July bth.
