The following appeared in the P. C.
Advertiser, Steamer edition, on the 20tA
, BON VOYAGE.
King Kalakava who left us on Thursday Tor a
journey round the world curries with bim our
hearty Aloha and that of all bin subjects. Dar
ing tbe seven years since bis accession to tbe
Hawaiian Throne he bas, by bis character aa a
Ruler, justly won tbe affections of bis people.
Nothing is more certain than that ilis Majesty
will not meet any potentate daring bis visit to
Europe of whom such a statement can be more
God Sate the King.
His Majesty Kino Kalakaua, whose
Kingdom comprises the Hawaiian Archipe
lago; also Palmyra, Comwallis, and other
islands of the central Pacific, ascended the
Throne, February 12, 1874, and is the
teventh Hawaiian monarch, since Kame
hameha the Conqueror organized the
Kingdom. King Kalakaua is now in the
forty-fourth year of his age, and in the
seventh of his reign. His Majesty received
an excellent scholastic education In the
Royal School, superintended by Mr.
and Mrs. Cooke of the American Mission,
in company with the late Kings Kameha
meha IV. and V., King Lunalilo, Her
Majesty Queen Dowager Emma, and other
Princes and Princesses of the Kingdom.
On leaving school, the young Prince David
Kalakaua was trained in military ex
ercises. He received a commission as lieu
tenant of the King's Guard in 1S52, was
promoted Captain and Major on accession
of Kamehameha IV., and became Colonel
and Chief of Staff, under Kamehameha V.
His Majesty also filled the positions of
Military Secretary and Lord Chamberlain,
during the reigns of Kamehameha IV. and
V. He was also member of the Privy Coun
cil of State, and hereditary Noble, or Alii
of the House of Nobles. He ascended
the Hawaiian Throne on the demise of
King .Lunalilo, in 1874; Ilis Majesty
speaks the English language with perfect
purity, and has the style and manner
of a highly cultivated gentleman. His
Majesty is a very diligent student, and has
studiously perused the work of Darwin,
Huxley, Haeckel, and other modern think
ers of great eminence ; and as his tastes are
decidedly military, . His Majesty has a col
lection of military works, remarkable for
variety and extent. It comprises the
works and biographies of all the notable
Captains of the eighteenth and nineteenth
centuries, and the principal modern works
on artillery and engineering.
His Majesty, by invitation of the American
Government, visited the United States In
1875. The Reciprocity Treaty, of mutual ad
vantage to the two countries, was the result
of the royal visit. His Majesty is a member
of several royal orders of Europe. The High
Chief Kalakaua joined the Masonic fra
ternity in 1858; and His Majesty is now in
vested with the rank, and insignia of the
33rd t egree, or highest rank of the mystic
art. . .
It is very pleasant to note tbe contrast be
tween things as they are in this little Kingdom
to-day, and tbe state of feeling which existed at
the time when this journal passed into the hands
of its present proprietor. At that time, the press
of the Kingdom, native and foreign, was banded
together in attack upon the King. A discourteous
criticism was freely indulged iq to bring him into
disrespect, and if tho tone of the press and the
loud talk in certain quarters could have been ac
cepted as the voice of the nation, no country
could have appeared morejripe for revolt against
its ruler. Those who had no sympathy with this
sort of thing bad no organ. They are, for the
most part, men who take no part in political af
fairs or discussions, content to follow their
avocations in peace in a kingdom whose institu
tions they respect and believe in. At this
juncture we stepped in, determined that the
voice of a minority, however loudly raised, should
not be mistaken for that of the nation. The
work wo laid out for ourselves was to support
the institutions of tbe country against the scarce
ly veiled attacks which threatened them ; to sup
port heartily, yet with a discriminating spirit,
the King and his advisers ; to set forth the truth
of things in opposition to the garbled stories
which were everywhere being circulated, to ex
pound discriminatingly matters which haaV"ex
cited bo much angry feeling ; and to arouse into
more demonstrative activity the spirit of loyalty
to tbe King, which we knew to be wide-spread
through tbe country, and as deep-seatod in tbe
breasts of the majority of our foreign as of our
native population. We took up the pen none too
soon, for the King and all his peaceably disposed
subjects could not fail to view with alarm the ex
ci ted condition of tbe exponents of an adverse senti
ment which seemed likely to carry them to
lengths, the fruit of which they would bare bit
terly to repent when too late. The King was
made to feel that scowling faces surrounded
him, to doubt whether or no his Throne might
be in danger to believe that all his earnest pro
jects for the welfare of his Kingdom and bis Peo
ple were about to be defeated, and the fruits of
long years of constitutional government on the
part of himself and bis predecessors scattered to
the winds. And we confidently say that our work
was ono of peace, we came forward to speak the
mind of that large but quietly disposed majority
of the nation, which viewed with the greatest
concern the angry feelings that had been raised.
Haw successfully, supported by the common
sense and loyalty of the masses of the people,
we have fulfilled that mission, the last few issues
of the Advertiser bave amply evidenced. The
acceptance of our respectful suggestion that Ilia
Majesty should, before undertaking a journey
abroad, visit the centres of population through
out tbe Kingdom, has happily proved the means
of demonstrating the loyalty to the Throne and
tbe affection for the King which pervades all
classes throughout these Islands. The duty we
undertook was taken up at a moment when it
was evident that " the times were out of joint."
Our reward is in the results, and we desire no
other. We find it in the record which we have
just published of the King's reception onFriday
evening by many of tbe very men who were so
hastily led away to disbelieve in bim. Very
graceful was- it on the part of Ilis Majesty on an
occasion of distinguished loyal demonstration to
smooth over tbe past by a gracious recognition of
a common liability to err. " Byegonea are now
byegones" and all Hawaiian subjects of what
ever birth joiu with ns to-day in bidding God
peed to oar King on s journey be is undertaking,
not fur pleasure or iu the spirit of mere curiosity,
but for tbe benefit of the Kingdom over which be
baa been called to role, and of the people whom
be loves and who love him. "

Address of Her Boyal Highness, the
At the Palace, on the morning of the de
parture of His Majesty :
Aliis, Officers, and Members o$ the King's
Guard, the Prince's Own, Mamalahoa
Corps, and all my people.
My royal brother, our beloved King, now
leaves us, and I appeal to your
love to your Sovereign Chief, to your
genuine aloha alii, as true Hawaiians,
that you will extend to me that love
and obedience which you so willingly
gave your King, to enable me to fulfill
justly, and wisely the duties of Govern
ment that are placed in my hands ; and
recognize in me a mother, as I shall look
upon you as my children. And I ask also
in behalf of my beloved consort, the same
love and obedience to accomplish the fulfil
ment of our joint trust. And I pray that
with hearts united and true, you will sup
port me in the performance of our duty to
our country, in the advancement of a com
mon welfare, and the maintenance of the
independence of our beloved land. This is
the desire I declare unto you God bless
The Departure of His Majesty.
The time of departure of tbe steamship " City of
Sydney " was fixed at G a.m.. Thursday morning.
While it was yet dark, at 5 a.m., we found the wharf
thronged with people, among whom were Ministers,
Nobles, and a representation from all ranks and
races in the capital. When the hour of 6 had
struck, it became known that the King would be on
board at half-past 6, and sharp on tbe minute His
Majesty arrived, the band struck up, and the peo
ple shouted, and as His Majesty passed up the gang
way, there sprang forth on both sides what seemed
like a fringe of outstretched bands seeking a last
touch of the hand of the departing Chief and Father.
The hawsers were cast loose, the great ship moved
on, tbe band pourth melodiously and tenderly, Home
Sweot Home ; a multitude of handkerchiefs on ship
and shore nattered in the air; and as the King was
seen by the rail aft with his handkerchief to his
eyes, many were pressed to weeping eyes oc shore,
as the great steamer moved grandly out to sea. with
the royal standard at the main, which the guns of
Punchbowl hailed with a royal roar.
We are amused at our brother Gazette's
serious discussion of the monarchical, poli
tical maxim, the "King can do no
wrong;" as an assertion of royal personal
impeccability. The maxim is a recognized
"legal fiction" that has nothing to do with
the question of the common lot of man to
err. "We are glad that our younger brother
so frankly confesses a sympathy with fellow
sinners; and we fully appreciate that he
would perfer, as he says, a Magdalen that
can do wrong, to a saint that is not so

Another Small l'ox Cask Dr. Hoffman was on
Wednesday called in to examine a suspected case
which proved to be small pox. The patient, a
Chinaman; who arrived by the " Quinta," was
living with others in a bouse on Kinp-street, near
Uaunakea-8treet. When seen by Dr. Hoffman, he
and others were eating together. The case is not
a severe one. It must bave been contracted on
the Quinta," during her voyage. The man whs
taken charge of by the police at once.

InhvraNCK Cask. A case of some interest to
shipowners and to Insurance companies was heard
on Thursday before the Chief Justice and a foreign
jury. On the evening ol the Cth June IaU. the crew
of the Eugenia M. Bi iggs.'' then moored in
Huelo bay. finding that the vessel made water
faster than they could pump her out, ubandoned
her. Next morning tbe vessel was still riding at
her moorings, and the crew went aboard and cut
ber adrift for the purpose, as they allege, of
"saving the cargo." which consisted of lumber
and of railway iron. The vessel was insured by
two policies, one of which ran from Dec. 6th 1879
to June Cth 1880." ft was on the evening of the
latter date that the vessel wan ubandoned by her
crew, aud it was on the seventh that they cut her
adrift from ber moorings. The action was against,
tbe insurers under this policy, and they taised the
defence, that it bad expired before the abandon
ment. Tbe jury found a verdict for Iho plain tiffs.
Tbe mere fact that a crew, thinking their lives in
danger, go ashore Irom a small vessel lying in an
exposed bay, does not of itself constitute a legal
abandonment of a vessel ; and the subsequent
action of the captain in taking possession ot. and
voluntarily stranding tbe vessel, takes the affair
entirely out of the category of abandonment.
The voluntary stranding, if justifiable (which, un
der the circumstances, may be doubted.) was a
general average act" and claims arising under it
can only be legally adjusted in acordance witb
the law of average.
Spreckels' Camp, E. Maui, Jan. 14.
I want to tell yon of an act of charity. Last Sun
day, as the people were going to Church, I taw a
native running witb all speed. He met a lady, seem
ingly going to Chnrcb. She accompanied tbe native
to a house situated in tbe taro patches. I waited for
some hours to find out what was the matter, till by
and by an old native informed me that tbe wife of a
kanaka bad given birth to twins, girls ; and both
would bave been dead but for this lady. She wash
ed and dressed them. She could not find a scrap of
new clothing in the hut to put on tbe little new
comers ; and so she removed ber own clean under
garments, and cut them up, and dressed the babes.
And then went borne and tent a basketful of good
things for the mother. Such blessed women are tbe
saviours of tbe people.
A Hoss Battery." A battery of the first
artillery halted one night daring tbe seven days'
fight, in a little clearing. The men lay down,
unhitching their horses but leaving them in
harness. Tbe first sergeant, now an honored
officer of the third artillery, told me how be got up
and walked toward one side of the clearing. lie
was baited and turned back by a sentinel.
Going toward the other side he was again
challenged. -" Who goes tbar ?' Tbe voice
struck him. lie replied, friend ; ' and said,
" what regiment is that?" The answer came
" Seventh Alabama." What regiment is that
on the othar side?"' Fiftb Georgia," replied
the sentinel. What battery is that?" Here
was a situation. The sergeant naturally didn't
know tbe name of a battery in the rebel army.
Hesitation would bave been fatal. By a lucky
inspiration be replied, "one of Stuart's batteries,"'
knowing that Jeb Stuart commanded tbeir
cavalry. Ob," said the other, then you's a
boss battery?" Yes," said C . "good
night." lie immediately awoke the captain, who
rather angrily said, " what tbe deuce is tbe
matter now?" " Excuee me captain,' said tbe
eargeant, ' but we are camped botween a Geor
gia and an Alabama regiment." It is needless
to say the captain got up. Horses were hitched
in quietly and the battery withdrew from be
tween the sleeping regiments, who never knew of
the prize that was within their grasp. Califor-nian.
We are not ready yet to formulate a creed.
Men have not lived long enough yet. If you do
not understand the philosophy of man bow can
you understand the philosophy of God ? If 1 say
that God is just and never have a consciousness
of" justice I 6ay nothing it is darkness. There
are one or two things that should be under
stood by theec creed makers before they begin.
Are they going to work with their hacks toward
the past aud their faces toward the future, or
with their faces teward tho past and their backa
toward the Tuture? Are they also going to take
into their confidence men who arc devoutly scien
tific? Are they going to give expression to the
views of such men ? Are they going to give ex
pression to the views of men whoe beliefs are
obtained from the manuscript of rocks? Are
they going to eay that the liiltle is inspired, and
leave men t clink through the Bible and make
out its meaning an best they run ? Men rend
about Noah's drunkenness ; they read David's
implicatory psalm; they rend narratives of the
terrible worldlincss and animalism of man, and
they interject with their reading a suporsition of
the Divine oripin of Scripture and they are con
fused. Is this committee going to meet the
exigencies of this reticent thought ? Is it to bo a
creed that is going t f uhsidizo the enginery of
religion for rc.ligion itself? or is thtro to be a
creed that will K't forth the inner nnd spiritual
life of nun ? To-d.ty a man may come in to tho
communion table who yesterday was recking
with oaths and profane expletives, if ho has only
said his prayer this morning nnd unid bo was
sorry for it. A innn may bo very wicked before
God, and the kingdom of heaven may not bave
shone, even, upon the battlements of his nature ,and
yet such a man may come in to the communion.
I may live a life like Christ, but if I denied the
forensic theory of the atonement and I sutatitatod
in the place of it a Scriptural fuct, I should he
called to account by the churches as a dangerous
man. Is there ever to be a statement of a creed
that shall bo founded upon a holy life?
I do not know what they are going to do. I
know what is going to bo done. 1 nm suro that
more and more as the years go on, as virtue
grows purer, as it docs upon tho worlJ, aa
philanthropy grows larger and nobler, as ft does
grow; as benevolence takes upon itself eosuiicnl
firoportions, as the moral elements in man grow
argcr and larger, the old scholastic statcuiouts of
creed have got to go up. That there are to be
new statements of truth in which tho marrow of
religion, conduct nnd character are to go on and
develop themselves is certnin. We ure como to
the time when we arc to have tho mind of Christ,
and that mind of Christ shall be the only thing.
Christian character will come then in the way of
elective affinities between God and goodness., You
cannot establish beauty and men not admire it
In churches I don't care what the ered is tho
true creed of any church is the way in which ita
members live, and then no weapon that is formed
against it shall prosper. Kxtract from a sermon

The Apohtatks" Crkko. Tho following is pub
lished as the " Apostates' Creed." a bit at the
unscientific belief of the day : "I believe in a
chaotic nebula elf-existent, evolver of heaven and
earth, and in tin: differentiation of the original
homogeneous mas, its first begotten product,
which was self'-formed into separate worlds, di
vided into land and water, eclf-organicd Into

to the philosopher, and sitteth down in the rites
and customs of civilization under tho laws of a
developing sociology. From thence he ahall come
again, by the disintegration of the beturogonixed
cosmos back to the original bomogencousncss of
chaos. I believe in the wholly impersonal abso

of the saints, the survival of tho fittest, tho per

in death everlasting."
Dr. George M. Heard is high authority on
nervous diseases, and tho degeneracy of Americ
an nerves " is what mainly troubles him. He
attributes the national nervousness, which is
manifest in the early decay of our teeth, our pro
mature baldness, and our liability to sick head
ache, bay lever, nervous dypcpia, epilepsy an 4
certain forms ol insanity, to tho mifguided tern
pernnco of the people. In a recent lecture in
Chicago, as reported in the Tunes, ha said :
Among. Americans of the higher orders, those
who live in doors, drinking is becoming a lost
art : among these classes drinking customs aro
now historic, must be searched for, read or talked
about like extinct or dying-away frpecics. A
European coming to America sees a sight that
no other civilized nation can show him ao im
mense body of intelligent people voluntarily and
habitually abstaining from alcoholic liquora,
females universally so and males abstinent, if not
totally abstinent. There is, perhaps, no single
fact in sociology more instructive and far-reaching
than this, and this is but a fraction of tba
general and sweeping fact that the heightened
sensitiveness of Americans forces them to abstain
entirely, or to use in incredible and amusing
moderation, not only the stronger - aloohalio
liquors, whether pure or impure, but also tho
milder wines, ales and beers, and even tea and
coffee. Half of my nervous patients give up
co Dec before I see them, and very many abandon
tea next to chocolate tho mildest of table
drinks. An absurd proportion give op a ilk, be
cause they cannot tolerate it, or believe tbey
cannot; aud very many drink scarcely any
water, which with all its defects, is the mildest
fluid that Nature gives to man. Thirstlessness a
lack of desire for water, and tho difficulty of as
similating it is as common among the upper
classes of Americans as lack of desire for solid
food, and is a most serious symptom, expressive
of a lower grade of nerve degeneration. . No peo
ple in tbe world drink so little fluid as we,
either witb or between meals. To see how other
nations drink, and to learn how our fathers, half
a century ago, used to drink, is, to a philosophic
nature, worth a trip to Europe, though nothing
else be seen ; since one may live hero for a life
time and never take tbe pains to study tbe habits
of recently imported foreigners in our midst, or
the habits of American born citizens in tbe far
