Mr. F. L. Clarke has oblired our.
morning contemporary with an "in
teresting account of the ' Julia ' from
her arrival at Levuka to the time of
her wreck." Thinking that this
"interesting account" has not been
sufficiently appreciated, even by our
contemporary, we proceed to review
some of the most salient points in
that effusion which should certainly
be placed in the first rank of litera
ture. At Levuka " colors wltrc set for a
pilot, and in a short time ( not in a
boat) he came off."
"The pilot told us that some
curiosity had been excited ashore as
to the nature of the Julia, the Hawa
iian flag been (sic) stranger to those
"The Hawaiian flag strange to
those waters!" Impossible! We
cannot credit this statement after
the celebrated Gibsonian Protest
against the annexation of the islands,
in "those waters," by European
powers. It must be a base libel to
"suggest" that "the Hawaiian flag
been (sic") strange to those wateis."
To think thusly after all the Foreign
Office efforts on behalf of the "sim
ple and ignorant people," and the
"wild beasts of the jungle!"
"A copy of the Port Regulations
was left with' us, and it proved to be
quite an elaborate ddcument; fore
shadowing the comparatively large
bill of expense to which vessels arc
subject to in that port." "Com
paratively largo bill of expense" is
good. Yes, "comparatively large"
to that which has yet to be paid by
the Hawaiian people for futile un
insured uniformed officials from
whom the Kingdom lias derived no
benefit. Is the "elaborate docu
ment" to be placed in the Museum?
We next learn that in Levuka,
strange as it may seem, there is n
4 ' long street. ' ' ' 'Behind the stores,
hotels, and business places are
perched the dwelling house, churches
, " Wild beasts of the jungle" have
"stores, hotels." The "hotels'
come to the front, for behind them
are "perched," (like birds on a
tree,) the dwelling houses, churches
and schools. First, "stores" (to
bacco and grub) ; second, "hotelB"
(drink); thiid, " dwelling houses"
(shelter); fourth "churches" (re
ligion); fifth, "schools" educa
tion for the "wild beasts of the
"A supply of fresh water is laid
down for vessels," ami presumably
for those who "go down to Urn sea
in bhins." It is "interesting" to
know Unit the Hawaiian olllcials
could, if they cared to, wash them
selves, or weaken the liquid extracts
from the hotels.
After "interesting" information
as to "two fine looking bathing
places," a lfinc Government gar
den," and a ic garden of Rev.
Mr. Floyd, of the Church of the
Redeemer, wo (the cx-cditorial "we"
here crops up) procured some jino
lilies, etc." "All these wo find
room for in our ward-inn case, where

in visiting points of interest connec
ted with the very recent cannibalistic
days of the Fijis, and returned
laden. After a few other days spent
in collecting corals, shells and inter
esting samples of Fijian industry and
art, we set sail.
Who is "We." Was "We," Cu
riosity Collector Clarke and a "cou
ple of natives," or was "Wo" the
C. C. C. and Captain Tripp? "We"
do not think that the robust captain
"spent a day in collecting splendid
ferns or visiting points of interest or
in collecting corals or interesting
samples." Picture to yourselves,
oh readers ! the gallant captain root
ing up a fern with the point of the
llawaiiau cheese-cutter or sword, or
stooping over the sandy sea-shore to
collect crabs or corals ! Which "we"
was devoured by the ''simple and
ignorant people" in the very recent
At Havana harbor, here "we" at
tempts to perpetrate a goak, a
"boat's-cmo were shipped for the
cruise." Then "we" visited about
twenty islands, the boats being down
every daj' and all day after labor."
There was no result for all this fear
ful amount of labor ; but "for the
most part we found that there was
labor enough, but the size and rig
of the Julia prejudiced ver' many
It is more likely that "the "size
and rig" of the Hawaiian dfficials,
with theit second-hand uniforms,
cocked-hat and swords, "prejudiced
very many natives."
The brief account of the wreck
shows that, in point of time, the
navigating officers were an hour out
in their reckoning. After the Julia
struck, a line was taken "astern,"
and the " line was then lead (sic.)"
If the South Sea waters are so strong
as to make a "line" into "lead"
what must be the effect of South Sea
whisky?" After the "grey dawn
had begun to render objects visible,"
Captain Tripp performed the slack
wire act of Charles Morosco of Sher
man's circus fame, "coming through
the rising surf on a Hue."
We sincerely .hope that, when
Captain Tripp' does arrive in Hono
lulu, he will publish his account of
the unfortunate disaster to counter
act the effect of the
account" of Curiosity

"STRAICHT IN THE FACE."
Editor Bullktik: Plain, blunt,
undiplomatic men like myself agree
with you, that it is true wisdom for
every planter and merchant and
everybody else to look his present
condition and future prospects
"straight in the face." We have
nearly run the length of our "seven
years of plenty." Are we now pre
pared for a similar period of famine,
or a shorter period, or any period at
all? A kind Providence has gra
ciously provided us with a produc
tive soil, seasonable rains, heavy
yields and high prices. Have we
permanently benefited 'by the boun
ties and advantages so liberally sup
plied? We have borrowed money
freely -and thoughtlessly, and made
money easily and rapidly. What
has become of it? What have we to
show for it? In many instances
perhaps a majority it has been
spent as recklessly and rapidly, and
the country is not in a much better
position to withstand a period of
famine than seven years ago. Land
for agricultural and building pur
poses has been purchased at ruin
ously high prices, money has been
lavished on buildings and ornnmentn-
lion to an extent that the circum
stances of the proprietors never
warranted, fancy horses and equi
pages have been? in demand, and
general extravagance has boomed
all along the line, beginning at
the head of the Government and
ending at the tail of the popu
lace. Whore arc wo now, gentle
men? A month or two ago, tho fear
of losing the treaty made us quiver
in our boots. We still retain the
treaty, but the unexpected drop in
tho price of sugar horrifies us with
affright. If sugar is to remain down,
of which there is strong probability,
how long can we keep on our legs ?
If we had been a wise and thought
ful people, economy in the time of
plenty would have prepared us for a
season of scarcity. To bo sure, the
high price of labor has prevented
full advantage being taken of the
treaty and high priced sugar ; but if
labor had cost nothing our reckless
extravagance would still have led on
to ruin. There has been too much
indulgence in gold chains, princely
mansions, empty display, and wild
speculation, which always indicate a
leaning towards the insolvency court.
The fact is, gentlemen, we have
shown no capacity to weigh the evi
dence of probabilities against the
delusions of temporary results. On
the day the sun was shining brightly
we were unable to perceive the possi
bility of rain on the morrow, the
relations of circumstances to times
being a stretch of imagination beyond
our limits of realization. It seems
to me that the necessity of change
in our habits i about to bo laid bare
to our comprehension by the same
physical persuasion which induces a
pig to eject his person from a flower
garden : it does, indeed ! My opinion
and inclination tend to the belief
that we had better buckle to at once,
take the "advice gratis," and look
things "straight in tho face," al
though we have a secret dislike to be
talked to about our own business,
when we think we ,lknow all about
it' ' ourselves ; and if we are to be
dragged through the fire of adver
sity, let us hope that we shall get
our carcases so fearfully singed,
that we may come out of the ordeal
wiser and better men.
