Wherever w& go, wc liear of the
various discordant elements in our
midst. Go to one place and the
'down towners" arc cursed as the
cause of every pilikia that ever
happened; to another, and " Kipi
kona " is an. arch angel of Satan, at
least, and so on with the whole
Toundof affairs. Not politics in alone,
but even in social and municipal
nffairs we. as a people, aro ex
tremely apathetic. Go when) you
will, attend what meetings you like,
the samo trouble prevails. Every
body is willing to talk and to agrco
or disagree, but when it really conies
to doing anything, why, then, the
backing out commences. Grumbling
is rife ; many things seem to want
amendment; but people lack the
moral courago (not to state their
opinions, there is enough of that) to
otand up and do what necessary,
to take tho lead in the reform work.
Why is this vico (for so wo think
it) so general? Is it the climate, or
what? Why do meetings for useful
purposes fall through ? Why is it so
difficult to get men to do the prac
tical work necessary both in politics
and private affairo? Why is the sup
port of the people withhold from
thoso who do start, especially if
thoy aro poor.
Why is there no voico of public
sentiment expressed on the nffairs of
tho nation, when so many individuals
are of one mind? Wo expect a great
many will answer the question in
words, and veryfow will do anything
to answer it.

Hawaiian Gazette of last Wednes
day says :
"The Appropriation Bill is a curio
sity as a matter of financial legisla
ton." "It i3 a matter of considerable
amusement to watch the squirming
and wriggling of tho Primnto's
organ, in order to make points in
favor of its inspirers."
Tho present Cabinet, far from
ruling the house, has allowed the
house to tako tho bit. in its teeth,
and fairly run away with everything.
"There was a time when the char
Rcter of the P.O. A. stood high as
an outspoken journal, but that time
has gone by."
"There can bo no Hawaii for the
Hawaiians any moro than there can

there is reason to pnuse."
"Tho powers that be aro Hawaiian
and must continue to be so."
"We counsel them, therefore, to
becomo good citizens and behave
themselves more seemly." (In reply
to the Gazette.)
"If we want to rcpopulnte the
country, a different policy must bo
pursued with these lands, as the
leases fall in."

it be remembered that on tho face of

Saturday Press says :
"Too great a tendency has been
displayed in the conduct of affairs
of Government by Cabinets, sue
ceeding in power to ignore tho nets
of their predecessors."
"But this scheme (Portuguese
Immigration,) for tho increase of
immigration, the great disideratum
of the country, has already been
strangled by tho act of the'Cabinct
now in power, to tho vast detriment
of tho largest industry of tho coun

of Dr. McCartec as Chinese trans

a way that seriously affects its
"To talk of self respect with men
who could pen buch editorial articles

"Alas! Alas I for. the misplaced
"confidence" of tho natives, who
find their David (Mr. Gibson)
turned to a very Judas."
"If the $33,4G5 cannot be fairly

On tho Bight Shoulders.
Hit. Editor, So much hat al
ready been written and said upon
tho subject of temperance by intelli
gent mon and women, that, for me,
to attempt to reform or inform any
ono on this subjoct would bo absurd
in the extreme. I agree with the
able lecture delivered in Fort street
Church a few month since, which
amongst its other points contained
this serious chargo: " If there were
no drinkers, there would be no sell
ers," thereby laying the responsi
bility on tho true shoulders. Just
here I wish to Btate that this is the
first time the responsibility has been
been laid on tho drinker. Hereto
fore, " the wretch concentred all in
solf," who has a sickly wife and four
or five ragged children lacking the
common comforts of life, and yet
saunters into tho grog-shop and
spends his last dollar, has been re
garded with a pitying eye as an in
jured creature. Yet, he is a greater
criminal than many of those who
parado our streets in their suits of
of " brown and blue," and whom
he should be amongst if our laws
wero as strict as they ought to bo.
A man, lik tho above, enriching
tho rumto'ler at the expense of his
needy family, or aged mother, whose
hair is bleached and whose tottering
foot-steps aro hastening to an un
timely end, should be looked upon
I Ito u ui;ilj UUVIIIfJ LUC 1UII1I Ul A IIIUI1,
but without the reasoning powers.
. I cannot believe that the man who
win porsisi tn making a
sot of him-
self, aud a disgrace to his family or
hc is light I cannot think him other
wlso'than a coward who devises such
low-lived means of committing crimes
and still keep beyond the reach of the
law. It is possible that he docs it
out of phllnntropio motives; that
ho wishes to be tho " hardest" of
cases so as to reform in the future
and havo a chance of out-doing all
others in the depth of his fall and
the heigth of his rise ; and, so, be
feted and admired by tho wealthy as
well as tho truly good. It seems to
me that tills motive would bo a
powerful one, sometimes, as I havo
seen at meetings, held in " Tho
Tempcranco State," tho blackest
sheep held up as the greatest hero of
tho day. I trust, Mr. Editor, some
abler pen than mine will take up the
themo. Yours, &c,
Temferamcr in all Tiiinos.

Anotheu Stheet Accident.
Yesterday, about 11 a.m., two horses
harnessed to a dray (belonging to
Mrs. Ward) in charge of a native,
became unmanageable and finally
ran away down Fort street. When
about opposite Lucas' factory they
came into collision with a hand-cart
propelled by a native coming up
from the wharf. Tho latter had
barely time to save himself from' the
frightened animals. Damage done:
a hand-cart smashed, and tho polo
and one swingle tree of the dray
snapped off, nnd tho horses' nerves
greatly shattered This is another
instance of the necessity of provid-
The Italian man-of-war, Christo

from Acapuleo yesterday morning,
and anchored about 10:30 a.m.
Great excitement was caused
throughout the city when the news

Moreno is not on board the Colombo

200 men ; is of 2,900 tons burthen,
her engines of 400 horse power, and
is 30 months in commission. She
