" If all journals were purely and honestly

nj ure, so long as they can till their pages
with smart, telling paragraphs, and in order
that the licentiousness of these may be
checked, it is necessary that the liberty of

nate that this should be the case, but as the
millenium has not yet dawned upon the
earth, v. e must make the best ot things as

quite so much exposed to malicious or mer

passing of the newspaper (law of libel) act."
The Maories of New Zealand
A letter from Mr. Whitney calls atten
tion to the Maories as immigrants. This
is not a new scheme, as in 1.S6( the Hon.
Wm. Hoapili Kaauwai went to New Zea
land to open a negotiation for the emigra
tion of Maories to the Hawaiian Archipela
go, lioaptli Kaauwai, wno uieu in l7o,
was a Hawaiian of noble and enlightened
views. He discussed with the editor of this
journal in 18Go, the scheme of establishing
communication between the two coguate
branches of the Malayo-Polynesian family,
between the peoples of the Hawt.iian and
New Zealand Archipelagoes. Kaauwai had
this great object in view, when ho and his
lady, Kiliwf 'Toaplli, sailed from their
native islau. inpany with Her Maj
esty Queen Dc .ger Kinma, who was pro
ceeding on a visit to the Court of Kngland.
This young Chief and his wife, after re
ceiving distinguished attention in Kurope,
sailed from London on board the ship Nor
wood for New Zealand, ami arrived in
Auckland, August, 1K06. They proceeded at
once to visit the Maori Chiefs of the North
Island, or Ika na Maui and were en
tertained by the Prince Tamehana, and
other high Maori Chiefs. Hoapili found
little difficulty in carrying on conversation
with his Maori friends. He was an enlight
ened man and a zealous student, and readi
ly adapted his Hawaiian-Maori language
to the New Zealand Maori language. His
views in rega.a to Maori migration to Ha
waii were cordially entertained by Tame
hana. Many patriotic Maories objected to
the scheme, deeming it almost a sacrilege
to abandon their fatherland, but a large
number took another view, saying that
their country was virtually lost to them ;
the whites, who so far outnumbered them,
were in complete possession of it ; but that
in Hawaii, an ancient sister land, there
were their own blood and lineage, ruled by
a Maori-Polynesian King. After a time
Hoapili wrote home to Minister Hutchi-
son and to the editor of this journal that lie I
was nremred to lead an emigration of sev-
eral thousand Maories, if the Hawaiian
Government would enable him to carry out
his negotiation. But the King Kameha
meha V had taken umbrage at the action
of Hoapili. He had proceeded as a volun
teer, independent Commissioner, audit was
supposed would arrogate to himself too
much consequence in case he should return
to Hawaii with a colony of Maories under
his guidance and influence. So this volun
teer Hawaiian negotiator received letters
from home disapproving of his independent
action, and warning him not to attempt to
promote any migration of Maories without
the full sanction of the Government of his
country. Hoapili was undoubtedly indis
creet in his action in this matter, and rea
sonably provoke 1 the objection of his Sov
ereign. It was understood when he set
out from Hawaii that he would proceed to
New Zealand for information solely, and by
a favorable report induce the Government
to take some action, but he was so much
affected by the sympathy and good will of
the Maories aud their eager desire to be
come compatriots with him in his own
country, that he took in hand at once a
plan of emigration which would, as he gave
assurance in his letters, be carried out en
tirely at tho expense of the Maories them
selves. However, Hoapili had to dismiss
his plan for the time, and he and his wife
returned to their home in the inlands.
The visit of Hoapili to the Maories awak
ened hopes in regard to the migration of
Maories to Hawaii, and views on the sub
ject often entertained are now revived by
the letter of Mr. Whituey on the subject.
From what we can learn, however, there is
at present, little likelihood that any great
number of Maories could be Induced to
come here. Perhaps if the King should
pay a visit to New Zealand and make a tour
through those districts in which the natives
are still numerous, His Majesty's presence
would attract the attention of some of the
more adventurous spirits and dispose them
to emigrate to a land iu which one of their
own race occupies the throne. They would
not, however, b induced to come here as
labojers in any numbers, and there are
many drawbacks in the way of inviting
them as settlers. The Government has no
large lands to offer to provide for the settle
ment of a body of colonists; whilst in New
Zealand, each Maori tribe has an ample
domain of its own. As a cognate peo
ple to promote population, the migration of
Maories to this .Archipelago in eminently
deserving of attention ; and as His Majesty
hopes some day to visit the countries of
the South Pacific we feel sure it will not
escape his attention.

J5f Our amateur dramatists already have as
surances of a bumper this evening. As soon as
it was announced, Thursday morning, that seats
for the entertainment at the Musical Hall could
be secured, Whitney and Robertson's store wus
thronged till every seat in the lower part of the
Hall was taken. This is a very gratifying result.
It is not only a pleasant compliment to lady and
gentleman amateurs but is an assurance, that if
our talented friends will come forward more fre
quently before the public, on the boards of our
New Hall, there will be many full houses, and a
great improvement of the financial condition of
the Hall, now much required.
kaF A telegram to the New York IVorld
from a special correspondent of that paper in
the city of Mexico says : "President Gonzales
has invited Senor Matias Romero, formerly
Mexican Minister at Washington, and three times
Secretary of the Treasury of Mexico, to accept
an appointment as special envoy to negotiate a
reciprocity treaty of commerce with the United
States. Romero will probably accept the posi
tion." This telegram which is dated Dec. 27th
shows that General Grant's ideas as to the mu
tual advantage to be gained by the United States
and neighboring tropical countries from recipro
city have gained a hearing in the most import
ant of those countri as. Residents in these Islands
cannot but watch with interest the progress of
this negotiation as its fate will be an indication
of that of the Hawaiian Reciprocity Treaty.
fy Mr. Eckart was charged yesterday with
assaulting one Charles W. Brandt. From the
evidence it appeared that some six months ago
Mr. Eckart, hearing that Brandt was in the
mountains, destitute, sent for him and got him
into the hospital. About two months after, tho :
man came to Mr. Eckart and told him that the i
doctors could do nothing for him, and that he !
was without means, whereupon Mr. E. gave him !
board and lodging at his own house and endeav- !
ored to get him work. Brandt has been three ,
months idle and living on his benefactor, and even
refused an offer the latter made to start him in i
business as a peddler on Kauai, because he pre-
ferred to stay in Honolulu. Finally on Wedues-
day night last, Mr. Eckart had to order him to f
leave the house the next morning on account of 1
his insulting behaviour to Mrs. Eckart. On the ,
Thursday morning on pretence of demanding an j
explanation, he had an altercation with Mr. Eck
art, which ended in the latter giving him a thrash-
iug and shoving him out of the door and sending
for the police. The Magistrate after hearing the ,
testimony of the two parties concerned, who j
were the only witnesses, fined Mr. Eckart $1.
I s?" The promised new line of steamers from
San Francisco to this port, is thus referred to
by the San Francisco Chronicle: "The Oceanic
Steamship Company is organized to run steam
ers to the Sandwich Islands. Efforts are beinff
made to charter two or three steamers in New York
or Europe, in order that the line may be opened
within four or five months. In the meantimft,
new iron vessels will be contracted for or pur-
chased to take the places of these us soon As
reaay. . Aiinougn iae ousiness win ue a. nw
confined to the Sandwich Islands, it is hoped in
time, to build up a profitable trade with the
other Islands of the South Pacific. The steam
ers employed iu the service are intended to be
the best to be had, to make from thirteen to
fourteen knots per hour, and to have a carrying
capacity of 2,.r)0 tons. They will make semi
monthly tri.is, leaving San Francisco and Hono
lulu on the 1st and 15th of every month. Good
passenger accommodations, expressly suited to
tropical weather, will be provided, with all need
ful appliances for convenience and comfort. It
is hoped, thereby, to make Hawaii a pleasure
resort mors frequented by San Franciscans.
Claus Spreckels is supposed to be the principal
stockholder in the company. The San Fran
cisco business will be in the charge of Messrs.
Goodall, Perkins, & Co."

fore the Supreme Court yesterday. The charge
was perjury in the second degree. Accarding to
the penal code, perjury in the first degree is such
as may be committed in a criminal proceeding
with a direct tendency to cause the conviction of
the accused. All other perjury is called " of the
second decree," and the punishment assigned to
it is " imprisonment at hard labor not more than
ten years.'' The substance of the charge was
that the accused said in the witness-box, in the
case of " S. M. Damon tt at. vsMary R. Chase,"
that he had a certain conversation with H. L.
Chase, Mrs. Chase being present, also that he
presented an account to Chase on premises on
Chaplain street in December 18X0, and that the
conversation he deposed to, was previous to Feb
ruary, 1SS1. Chase alleged that the conversa
tion occurred in April last. The difference of
date was a matter of moment in the proceedings
referred to. In summing up. His Honor Judge
McCully instructed the jury that they had to de
cide as to the credibility of the witnesses in re
gard to dates, and also as to whether the perjury
if committed, were intentional or not. After a
short retirement, the jury returned a verdict of
not guilty, three jurors dissenting.

WHARFAGE AND TOWAGE DUES.
Mb. Editor : As a Shipmaster visiting your
busy and prosperous little port I venture to ask I
jour kind permission for spuce iu your valuable j
journal, for the followiug few reiuaiks regarding
the charges ou vessels visiting your nrt. .
1st. The wharfage is especially heavy, the
ships haing to pay wholly for the support of the f
wharves, while the merchant or importer, who iy
constantly using them, pays no lmrfnge. I hav'W
visited most parts of the world, but no where
have I seen tho whole charge fall on tho ship,
and I fail to why the importer should not
contribute largely to the support of tlif wharves,
the ship paying a small proportion. Iain also
informed that a ship bringing general merchan
dise gets a considerable return otl' her wharfage
from the consignees of her cargo, who have to
pay a certain wharfage for their goods, while the
lumber and coal merchants are exempt from pay
ment, although their cargo is ou the wharf a much
longer time than that of the general mcrchaut. "
I also observe, that while the wharfage chaises
are so high, the approaches to the ship are such, ,
that in wet weather it is difficult to get to the
vessel without getting knee deep in the mud.
Towuge in reasouab'e, but not at all pr por
tionate; the vessel I command is 3G3 tons regt "tcf
and my towage is -o, whil the hip Nineveh
whose tonnage is 1.150 tons, and carrying nearly
three times my cargo, is towed in for f !.'
Now Mr. Editor, probably I may never visit
the pictutesque little port of Houolnlu again, but
iu any case, I should (for tho b nefit of ships
and the prosperity of tho Iort), be much pleased
to hear of a reduction of the wharfage charged to
the ships, to a figure wheh I and every shipmas
ter visiting the port, would cheerfully pay, and
afterwards report to the world that the principal
sea-port of this beautiful group of Islands, is a
reasonably inexpensive port to visit. Hoping,
some other pen may take the matter up, and
apologizing for trespassing ou your space, I am
Dear Sir, Yours respectfully,

Before the Cuikh Jcstick uud Mr, Jnstics
After the matter of the appeal in Rex vs Fook
Gee had been disposed of as reported hi last Is
sue, His Honor the Chief Justice took Ids Heat
on the bench to hear the following matter.
Fook Gee vs Aulo : exceptions to the, ruling
of the Chief Justice ou a motion for a new trial.
The question was then raised whether Mr Jus
tice Austin was disqualified from also hearing
the casrj. by veasoii of his having been engaged,
before his elevation to the bench, us counsel for
the plaintiff. Mr. Hartwell argued against the
supposed disqualification, but the Judge himself
declined to sit, on the ground that he had ft. pe
cuniary interest iu the case, and that it was de
sirable that the Judges should be wholly unbias
ed. Mr. Hatch for the defense, argued that the
motion for a new trial ought not to have been
granted. Mr. Hartwell followed on the same
side. Mr. Dole for plaintiff, said that if it was
shown that Fook Gee had paid his money in ad-
j vance for the 122 men, he brought here and was
' entitled to it back, there was no injustice iu
grunting a new trial. The Court took time to

.friend vs E. Furgie ; demurrer. Mr. Davidson
j 'for plaintiff. Plaintiff sued for a return of a pre-
mium on an Insurance i'olicy, claiming it ou me
strength of un oral agreement. 1 he point to be
argued was whether snch oral agreement could
be set up to vary the terms of the written con
tract. Judgement reserved.
Before the Full Court,
liobt. Briggs vs J. R. Mills ; exceptions to the
ruling of the presiding Justice at the last October
term. Mr. Dole for plaintiff, Mr. I'.ii kerlon for
defendant. Mr. Bickerton asked that certain
affidavits which he had placed on tin tile be
made part of his exceptions to the decision over
ruling the motion for a new trial. Mr. Dole ob
jected ; the affidavits imiortd new matter which
could not bo taken into consideration at this
stage of tho proceedings. The Court took tiun

Rex vs Fook Gee : having opium in possewsion.
Appeal from the Police Justice of Honolulu.
Mr. Russell appeared for the defendant. Th
evidence given was similar to that taken in th
police court, and Mr. Russell argued that it did
not disclose any proof of the offense charged.
Fook Gee was arrested by the police in a nmm
where the latter believed opium to have Ik en just
smoked, because of the odor prevailing, and in
which they also found an opium pipe still warm
from use. They found no opium on his jx-rson
or in the room itself, although they discovered a
box of the drug in a closet, in the yard at the
rear of the premises. The tenement was occu
pied by others besides Fook Gee, and it was giv
en in evidence that another man lx-Hides Fook
Gee was in the room when the police made a raid
upon it. The jury brought iu a verdict of not
C. J. Stein vs Gideon W.t : malicious arrest.
Mr. Hatch uppeared for tli plaintiff, Mr. Dole
and M. Davidson for the defense. This case oc
cupied the Court all the afternoon, and the jury
after more than an hour's retirement, brought in
a verdict for the defendant, three jurors dissent
ing. Mr. Hatch excepted to the vo.dict as con
trary to the law and the evidence.
Rex vs A. D. Githens ; assault with a danger
ous weapon. The defendant pleaded guilty.
Mr. Preston said that he had been requested by
Mr. McChesnej-, the gentleman who hud been
assailed, to intercede with the Court for mercy
to the prisoner, the father of the latter lieing a
very old friend. Sentence deferred.
B. H. Kahananui vs J. Cluncy, administrator
of E. K. Cluney deceased. Mr. G. B. Kalaaukane
for the plaintiff, S. B. Dole for the defendant.
The plaint was demurred to on the ground that
it mixed up too forms of action for trover in ono
real and personal estate being mixed np ; also
on the ground it did not specify at what time the
demand had been made and refused, although it
was material that the claim should have been
made within six months after the administrator
was appointed. Mr. Kalaaukane in reply, said
that the action was not for recovery of the real
estate, but for the value of his client's interest in
it. Decision reserved.
Rex vs A. D. Githens. The Court sentenced
Githens to two months imprisonment at hard la
bor and to pay a fine ot $250.
