(From Wednesday Express, Dec. 8.)
Mr. Lisbman broke ground on Monday
morning in tront of Aliiolani Hale for the erection of
tbe pedestal, upon which is to be placed the statue
of Kamehameba, to arrive per Q. F. Haendel, due
There is a superstition in the Hawaiian mind
against the Kamani, or umbrella tree; and since tbe
one in front of Aliiolani Hale has been cut down, it
it said that there will be quiet in tbe Government,
and no more changes. Tbe political millenium has
come to Hawaii nei.
Tbe Pioneer Mill at Lahaina has a heavy
crop of cane to grind this seacoo. The generous soil
of Lahaina, ever recruited by tbe fertilizing flows
from the mountains has been supplemented this
year by bounteous rain, that will enable it to turn
out an unusually heavy grist for tbe mill.
A sale of country lands made by order of the
Trustees of the Lunalilo estate took place on Mon
day. Two tracts in the Hamakua district, Hawaii,
some portions of which are suitable for the growth of
sugarcane, realized together $20,700. As the total
area was 7,720 acres, the price obtained is equal .to
$2.68 per acre. Several lots of lmd in the Kona
district each between 300 and 400 acres in extent
realized $0 76, $183, $182, and $2 62 per acre,
respectively. A parcel of land near tbe Waihee Plan
tation on Maui, 1324 acres, part of which is des
cribed as good cane land now in cultivation, was
knocked down for $1 per acre.

Thk Small Pox The startling story that the
small-pox was in our midst, was prevalent around
town on tbe morning of the 6th lost. Inquiry re
vealed the following facts, Ambrose Olsen, a pas
senger per steamer Australia, took lodging at a
house on Maunakea street, and soon after his arrival
there, complained of feeling ill. He was directed to
go to the hospital and a carriage wag furnished to
convey him thither. Arriving at tbe hospital he
waa interviewed by one of tbe officials of that insti
tution, regarding bis ailment. The symtoms as
described by Olsen and also tbe intelligence that he
bad come from San Francisco caused Mr. Hopkins,
the steward, to delay bia admittance until the arrival
of competent medical authority, which soon appeared
in tbe persons of Drs. McKibbin and Hutchinson.
Dr. McKibbin after a few questions, pronounced
Olsec'a case aa one of small pox, and tbe afflicted
man waa immediately transferred to tbe reef hospital
and a native attendant provided. No other cases
are reported and there is not at present any ap
parent cause for alarm.

Neighbor Gazette says that he bas been
" trying to keep a record of tbe number of men who
have been asked to form a ministry;" and gave it
up after reaching a " fabulous amount. Is he one,
that has been asked lately ? We fear not; and hence
a little soreness.
Father Damon said, in last Sunday's sermon.
that a Scottish divine, iu speaking of the work of
Moody and Sankey, tbe revivalists, in Scotland,
considered that they had wielded a great influence
there " in promoting short prayers in public." We
hope that Moody and Sankey will come here.
SF A Celestial answering to tbe cognomen of
John Allen, was arrested by officer Mehrten, on a
charge of having opium in bis possession, fifteen
tins of this noxious drug having been found rolled
up in a blanket, iu the room of the accused. A fine
of $100, and six months imprisonment was given to
John for thus defying the laws of the country.
Eg" The Board of Health received lately 160
quills or " points," of genuine vaccine lymph, or
bovine virus. This was procured by Mr. S. G.
Wilder, in San Francisco, and forwarded to the
Board, in anticipation of an order for virus to be
obtained from a medical institute in Boston. We

A quartette of natives have been engaged
for some time past in purloining saccharine matter
in tbe shape of sugar from tbe schooner Marion,
and selling tbe same at decreased rates to the
proprietors of Chines restaurants. Tbe suspected
depredators were arrested on the 8th inst. on a

A rather interesting game of fisticuffs was
indulged in by haohs and natives on tbe wharf of
steamer Likelike, on the evening ot the 6th instant,
and black eyes and bloody noses abounded. The
cause was reported to be a dispute in regard to tbe
ownership of an orange, and it is believed that the
question yet remains unsettled. Officer Tell deserves
credit for the promptitude of his appearance, and
the judgment displayed io quelling the disturbance.

cre of natives on Druuiruond's Island, in which it is
said that a native Hawaiian Missionary named Na
limu figures promiueutly as a leader. It is said by
some, that a little over zeal," on the part of Na
limu and his co-religionists, led the inhabitants of
the Northern and Southern portions of tbe island, to
enter into a deadly conflict, tbe result being tbe
slaughter of about 400 men, women, and children;
the latter beiug abominably and frightfully muti

Small pox abroad in the Btreets of
Honolulu. As Dr. Hoffman was on his way, early
yesterday morning, to attend to bis prison
patients, be observed young man, a foreigner,
moving along with an air of langor, and with
evidences of disease on bi3 countenance, whieb
struck the experienced eye of tbe physician, as
being a case of small pox. Our worthy doctor,
coming to a halt, spoke to the man ; and
made enquiries about his health and recent move
ments. Tbe stranger replied, I believe I am
sick of small pox. I arrived here by tbe steamer
Australia, on her last trip ; and I am now going
in search of a doctor ; for I feel very bad."
"Well." said the doctor, -you bave struck tbe right
shop. I am a doctor, and I see clearly that you
bave small pox. I am not tbe Government physi
cian, charged with Ibis duty ; but I appeal to you
aa a man of sense, to follow my instructions and
accompany me." Dr. Hoffman, then accompanied
the patient to the Station House ; bad him placed
in an open ward alone, and gave instructions to a
policeman to prevent any commuuication with tbe
man till tbe Board of Health physician arrived.
Dr. Hutchinson, tbe physician of the Board was
sent for, aad on arrival at tbe Station House, con
firmed tbe opinion of Dr. Hoffman in tbe case.
The man named Mr. White, has been removed
to tbe small pox quarantine on the reef. Tbe
intelligent observation, and prodent precautions
of Dr. Hoffman In this matter, (and it is not the
first instance of bis observation and precaution in
the care of public health,) are deserving of tbe
highest commendation. Tbe man baa been at work,
aa a carpenter, along 1 with a lot of South Sea
Islanders on tbe new building of H. H. R. Ke!iU
kolani. and there may be reason to apprehend an
outbreak of the disease.
EST Tbe Board of Tax Appeal meet again on
tbe 13th inst. at tbe Police Court Room.
EST Another of those whose cares and troubles
cause them to J,' shuffle off this mortal coil " took
himself off on tbe evening of tbe 9th inst., between
the hours of 7 and 8 p m. In this instance he vic
tim of self-destruction was Amos Olsen, a late arriv
al by the Australia, and who, developing signs of
small-pox, had been placed in tbe pest house on tbe
reef. About tbe hours mentioned above and while
the attendant was absent, Olsen, who waa in a rag
lng fever secured a razor, and with that instrument
cut his throat, severing the jugular vein and dying
almost immediately. His body and effects have been
taken care of by the proper authorities. Why was a
feverish small pox patient, left alone ?
fj3" " The African slave trade by Americans,"
is the title of a notable book, said to be in the course
of preparation. It is said that there are evidences
which identify about one hundred and forty respec
table ebip owners, and business firms of Boston,
Salem, and New Be J ford Mass., of Newport and
Providence, R. I , and of New London, Conn , and
of other ports of New England, with this atrocious
trade during tbe first half of this century. I be last
of the slaving enterprises from those ports, was that
of the Echo, Capt. E. C Townsend of Providence,
R. I., wbo was captured on the Coast of Cuba in
1858 with 600 slaves ou board, by tbe U. 8 S Dol
pbio, Capt. Maffit.
Theatrical. Tbe California Theatre Co. com
prised of Messrs. C. B. Wells, Henry N. Wilson,
W. C. Crosbie, J. N. Frankur, Miss Eliza Long
Miss May Wilkes and Miss Ella Allen gave their
initial performance of tbe season on tbe evening
of the 4th inst. aud tn a house compactly filled
with tbe beauty and elite of this city. The even
ing's entertainment consisted ol tbe costume come
dy by Morton, entitle-d, A Husband to Order,"
and introduced anew to the Honolulu public tbe
affable manager Mr. C. B. Wells and the petite and
charming soubrette Miss Eliza Long ; tbe gentle
man as tbe dasbing and handsome Pierre Morceau,
au officer in the French army, and Miss Long tbe
sprightly and vivacious ward of a ' returned emi
grant nobleman." From tbe moment the curtain
went up, until tbe end of tbe act the audience
present displayed by their applause that the two
above named players bud lost none of their former
popularity. The new comers introduced, Mr.
Henry N Wilson, Mr. W. C. Crosbie, Miss Wilkes
and Miss Allen, were also tbe recipients of gener
ous applause. In the farce, " The Wandering
Minstrel," Mr. Wilson's change from the aged, un
couth and honest Ptiillipeau of the comedy, to
the young, affected and lively singing; master,
Tweedle, displayed a thoroughly artistic idea of
tbe necessary make-up. Mr. Crosbie was exces
sively funny and has captured, without doubt,
even on bis first appearance, tbe love of the
gods." Miss Long was the recipient of two
bouquets and in conjunction with Mr. Crosbie so
satisfied everybody in comical impersonations
called for in tbe farce, that tbe audience remained
seated for some little time after the fall of the cur
tain, Oliver Twist-like wishing for more." On
Monday mgbt Checkmate" and Six Mouths
After " were produced and on Thursday evening
tbe domestic drama of The Chimney Corner." iu
which Mr. W. C. Crosbv and Mr. Henry N. Wilson
displayed very fine acting, and the roaring
farce of "Turn Him Out." To-night tbe
drama of Checkmate " and the farce of " The
Omnibus " will hold the boards.
The Eruption on Hawaii.
The kahunas are reported to have said that if tbe
King would visit the scene of the eruption, Pele's
wrath would be stayed. These Hawaiian Delphians
will take credit for this prophecy, now that the
papers announce simultaneously tbe landing of His
Majesty at Mahukona, and tbe abatement of volcanic
energy on Mauna Loa. The original eruption does
indeed appear to be at an end. The vast streams of
lava which it sent straying down in so many direc
tions have ceased to flow, and are rapidly cooling
But the activity of tbe great valcano has uot ceased.
New oraters have been formed, and it remains to be
seen whether the over-flows from them may not be as
vast and as far-reaching as those from the earlier
vents. One of tbe new points of eruption is between
Mokuaweoweo and the earlier craters, another is
some miles back to tbe west. We have accounts as
to the action of tbe former. Tbe cone thrown up is
estimated to be nearly 400 feet high. From it a new
lava stream baa burst forth, running eastward but
on a course lying to the southward of those which
bave just ceased to flow in that direction. Some dis
tance down tbe mountain this stream divides into
two. On clear nights this flow has afforded a spec
tacle equal in magnificence to that which tbe earlier
streams presented. As to what tbe western crater
is doing we baue as yet no intelligence. Probably
any large stream to which it may give birth will
take a course entirely different to those hitherto seen
during this eruption, and follow tbe track of tbe
flow of 1859, which, iu aa incredibly short space of
time found its way to tue sea near Kalahuipuaa on
tbe north coast of the island.
Rev. Dr. Damon at Home.
The Bethel was unusually crowded last Sun
day, with the numerous friend of Father
Damon, to welcome his return to bis pulpit.
The worthy pastor appeared much refreshed
and re invigorated by his late travel in Europe ;
and bis discourse gave evidence of an enhanced
buoyancy of spirit.
lie read from Acts about the journeying ol
Paul and Barnabas, and how that " they re
hearsed all that God had done with them, and
bow He bad opened the door of faith unto the
Gentiles." He discoursed about the religious
and benevolent institutions that bad come under
bia observations. In Liverpool there was a must
interesting Sailors' Orphans Society, that had in
charge about 250 boys, and 150 girls, tbe chil
dren of ship wrecked sailors, wbo received such
excellent training and instruction, and be bad
never listened to such apt and appropriate dis
courses, as tbe quarter of an bour lectures to the
children. During a visit to A. Balfour Esq. in
Wales, he received some most valuable sugges
tions in respect to borne mission work. In Glas
gow be noted tbe largo influence that bad been
effected by tbe labors of Moody and Sankey ; a
Scottish divine remarking, that these evangelists
bad done much in Scotland to promote congre
gational singing, social worship, and short pray
ers. In London, be bad listened to Dean Stanley,
Rev. Mr. Spurgeon, and Canons Farrar and Lin
ton ; but our good pastor was chiefly interested
in a city mission work of Rev. M. Noble, wbo
bad established in a low class third rate theatre,
in a filthy Five Points " quarter of the city,
among the vilest of tbe populace of modern
Babylon, a noble work of instruction in temper
ance and pure religion ; and Father Damon was
highly instructed by attending tbe 769th Service
in " llexton Hall," of the. Rev. Noble and bis
wife, who works with him. Then he passed
over to Germany, and spoke of tbe over shadowing
influence of the army in that powerful empire.
There are many earnest Christian men, in tbe
great Vaterland ; but tbe military spirit and its
tone has an overshadowing predominance. At
Lucerne io Switzerland, be observed interesting
evidences of religious associations. A Srntrh
presbyterian preached in the same edifice that
had juBt been devoted to tbe celebration of the
Maes ; an4 the protectant sermon had com
menced, ere the candles uBed in tbe Catholic ser
vice bad been extinguished. Whilst at Inler

Paris, there is an interesting increase in evangel
ical work, there being some twenty-five protest-
ant meeting nouses in tne great city of pleasure.
And then skipping over to San Francisco, our
paeior communes witn Moody and Sankey; and
be appreciates the earnest utterance of Evangel iat
Moody, that now is the time, not onlv to call
sinners to repentance, bat to call christians to
work. And father Damon closed with a fervent
aspiration that a good work be commenced and
carried on here. Now is tbe time.

Mr. Editor. In- a recent number of a local
paper 'a the following sentence. The queetion
of Hindu labor has been discussed here too often
with reference to matters which ought to be entirely
irrelevant, as for instance, tbe probability that tbe
introduction of such labor would or would not cause
British influence to predominate, and the ulterior or
persoual motives which may actuate certain persons
who have urged its introduction."
This is news to most of us. Indeed it was gener
ally supposed tbe diecusMou on the subjct of
Hindu laborers was confined to not many gentlemen
un oue ide, aud fewei on tbe other.
Can you say whether any discussion, publio or
private, has been had, beyo..d what has appeared iu
your own paper and one other T
No publio discussion besides this has taken place
or every one would hae heard of it. If there has
been any priate discussion to hicli the publio
were not invited, no one, not present, could know
what pissed there, and uot knowing could take no
f art in it.
Can you Mr. Editor point out wl.en the question
has beeu discussed that the introduction of Hindus
would or wourd not cause liritifh influence to pre
The question appears to be altogether new, and
now imported tor ibe first time. If uot, the publio
should be informed by the person wbo has brought
it into notice, bow it originated, who proposed it,
and where it has been discussed ?
Tbe argument in favor of employing Hindus is.
The benefit to tbe entire community of having an in
exhaustible supply of men and women at a low rate
of wages ou wbicb to draw for laborers and servants.
Ou tbe other side it has been said, that their intro
duction would be too costly; aud when this objec
tion was shown to be fallacious, it was suggested
that unless Great Britain would at the outset modify
her laws in our favor, they could not be brought.
This difficulty being fouud to be equally baseless, it
has been discovered that British interests would pre
ponderate too greatly if Hindus were brought here.
The answer to this is; that British interests are
measured and limited by treaty.
We ought to treat Great Uritain as respeotiully as
we do other nations, and to remember that since tbe
negotiation of tbe treaty in 1857 no question with
ber occurred until, (as has been stated) one arose
from the fault of Hawaiian officers in 187C.
But mention is made of personal and ulterior
motives of those urging the introduction of Hindus,
and that tbe personally ofleusive mode wlih which
one or two gentlemen have discussed the question,
and tbe distrust they have c lUsed have had much to
do with tbe delay during the present year.
Is it possible that a respectable professional gentle
man who has filled some of the highest oflices in the
state can stoop to employ uch a plea iu discussing a
public measure affecting the welfare of thousand T
Are tbe families ot all classes of Hawaiian residents
to be subjected to extortion, loss, and discomfort;
are planters, merchants, aud men of every rank in
life to be ruined, is the nationality to be destroyed;
because one or two gentlemeu bave made themselves
obnoxious to some others ?
Such a plea is uuworihy of men pretending, I will
uot say to statesmanship, but to respectability. It ia
monstrous. If opponents of the measure have no
thing better to justify I heir opposition would not
consistency, if no worthier motive, suggest to iheiu
tbe propriety of changing their resolve .'
Reply from Mr. Freeman.
To the Julitor of the J'uv.ifle Commi-rcinl Ailvrrtisrr.
Sib, I bave suffered somewhat through the pub
lication at certain intervals of aronyinous letters
printed in the Auvkhtixku, purporting to ileal with
the question of Polynesian Immigration; really
written as vehicles of annoyance and slander.
rinding 1 have as yet abstained from noticing or
commenting upon such attacks, Lieut. G. Jackson
(once II. N ) has come out fiom his hiding pluce;
and concluding my hesitation has been caused by
fear, be has at length been pertuaded to sign hi
name to his last effusion.
He mistakes uie I never hesitated or feated to take
up a gauntlet openly thrown down. I have simply
waited, aud eveu at risk of blame on certain sides, I
bave been content to ignore anonymous slanderers,
not casting tbe first stone nor feeling any special
issiou to act tne part oi a pumic scavenger.
1 am now however tree to speak out. Firstly.
I deprecate as a cunning trick the writing by Mr.
Jackson, of the letters 1 leel assured are his, signed

lic good, ' the true object to restore Mr. Jucksou
ouce more to command ot a vessel for a cruise iu

Inferences are drawn unfavorable to my inauage-
uient and strikingly favorable to Jackson's former
service, and statistics of costs aud results of labor
under either system are iuvtuted tu mislead those
taking interest in tbe matter.
I am prepared to prove that each aad every state
ment is false; tbe bguies are seized atrmdot
cooked to mislead, and aie utterly unreliable.
Without troubling in this letter lo correct euch of
.Mr. Jacksou s mis statements whether in his first.
second or third epistle, I will simply men lion first
ly iu reply to the contemptuous remarks us to num
bers aud results, tbut I succeeded iu uiy short ser
vice in sending to this country upwaids of 1,100
Polynesians, and, bad my efforts in the early part cf
my 8 months stay iu the South Pacific, uot beeu
clogged aud uega'ived by the iuitemper.iie conduct,
vi inertia, aud covert opposition of Mr. Jackson,
1 should have sent up a very much greater number.
His utter ignorance of any one known Polynesian
lauguage or dial, ct, his constitution! liquidity, and
his happy facility ot leaving at every inland a name
entirely calculated to bar recruits from venturing
uuder bis naif, funned a very great handicap to our
