M05HTAY, MAY 29, 1882.
THE LATE MINISTRY.
Something of the nature of a sen
sation was cteated in the community
on Saturday by a reinnrkablc letter
which appeared in the Advertiser of
that date, from the pon of Mr. "V. L.
Green, the late Minister of Foreign
Affairs, containing a sketch of the
history of the late Ministry from the
time of the commencement of the
session of the Assembly until their
resignation. The letter is candid
and manly in tone, and while it will
add to the appreciation in which the
author is held by the general public,
it must prove a valuable and timely
help to the new Cabinet. Coming
from an eminently conservative
thinker, one who is intimately con
nected with the material interests of
the country, the views expressed will
have much weight. The narrative,
besides, is interesting reading to
those unacquainted with the work
ings of the inner circles of Hawaiian
On the much mooted question of
an immigration of East Indian
coolies, Mr. Green is explicit and
cniphatical against the scheme. He
says that the present Premier
" has altogether too much intelli
gence not to perceive when he occu
pies the position of Minister of
Foreign Aifairs, as some of his pred
ecessors have found before-him, that
the introduction of British East In
dian Coolies into this Kingdom iipon
the tmly terms on which they ever
could be introduced, that is under
the supervision of a British protect
or, is utterly impossible, for he must
lie blind to the feigns of the times
who fails to note first, the bold and
decided policy of the United States
as forshadowed by Mr. Blaine's late
ultimatum to the European powers ;
second the wonderfully rapid in
crease of the already overshadowing
power of the United States to main
tain such a policy when she decides
upon it ; and to note both in connec
tion with the varied close relations
which this Group of Islands always
have had and always must have, with
the Great Republic. It is hardly
necessary to call attention to the fact
that the coolie system is threatened
everywhere by the progress of ideas,
and would bo altogether out of place
under a Constitutional Govern
ment, or indeed anywhere but in a
sugar growing Crown Colony of the
u severest type," a condition which
God forbid that this country should
ever arrive at. Indeed every true
friend of Hawaii nei must perceive
that the introduction of the East In
dian Coolie system into this Kingdom
would, even if it were possible, be
an outrage on the whole Hawaiian
people, and bo injurious to them
politically, socially and morally."

11 Listen to Baron von Licbig, one
of the ablest chemists the world ever
pioduced. Ho says : ' Fermentation
is nothing else than the putrefaction
of a substance containing no nitro
yen!' There is no dispute on this
point among those who know any
thing about it. I merely mention it
Hint you may understand what you
arc driuklng when you pour down jrer
tnented, that is rothd, liquor! You
would bo angry if your butcher sold
you putrid meat, or your grocer
brought you rancid butter, or decay
ing potatoes. But why? You might
as rationally cat decaying food as
drink decaying fluids.
" Well, after all these four process
es have been gone through with, and
you hold your glass of beer up to
the light, what do you see? In n
pint of pure beer you have a little
more than 14 ounces of water, a
very little extract of barley, and
nearly owe ounce of alcohol It is
that ounce of alcohol which gives
that pint of beer its fascination it
is for that and ttiat alone that you
drink itl Extract that, and you
woidd never taste the insipid, nasty
" But let's be a little more explicit
about the amount of alcohol in beer I
Pure whiskey contains 50 per cent
of alcohol. Beer varies greatly from
four to ten per cent. When you
drink a large ' schooner ' of beer,
and a small glass of whiskey, you get
almost as much alcohol in the schoo
ner as you do in the small glass 1
"But is that all, alcohol and the
juice of rotten barley, that is con
tained in that glass? By no means.
The Brewers' Guide gives over 70
different articles used in ' doctoring '
beer. Let me name only a few:
Cocculus indicus, the rankest poison
known, oil of vitriol, pepper, aqua
fortis, poppy seeds, logwood, worm
wood, tobacco, copperas, sugar of
lead, sulphuric acid, prussic acid and
brack ants! Do you call such a
compound of poisons, drugs, dead
insects and dyestuffs wholesome 1,
Such compounds of poison and filth
might well have come from the cal
dron of Macbeth's witches.
" Docs not any man in his senses
know that when lie talks about sub
stituting ' pure wine and beer , for
strong liquors, and thus do away with
drunkenness, that he is advocating
an impossibility? It is impossible
to got ' pure wines and beer.' "
Tho fear of trespassing too much
on your valuable space prevents my
making further extracts in confirma
tion of tho truths asserted by the
" Medical Record ;" but I earnestly
wisli your correspondent, " Barlcjv
Bree," would get the above men
tioned pamphlet on " Moderation,"
and carefully peruse it ; and as he is
a " strung advocate of Temper
ance," I feel quite sure ho would
discover where t;i-tcmperanco begins.

Somebody in our hearing yester
day observed, depreciatingly, " So,
Miss Ward is going to give n scene
from Romeo and Juliet, eh? That's
old." Old it may bo, friends, but it
still draws. For instance this play
was recently announced at the Ly
ceum, London. As a proof of tho
interest taken in tho performance, it
is stated that a number of persons sat
on camp stools at the theatre door,
as early as ten minutes before
nine in the morning and patiently
awaited the opening of tho door.
To sit up all night in order to be in
