We are pleased to learn that our
unpalatable articles on the above
subject, and the two letters of our
correspondent "No Sophist," have
been the means of driving the un
pleasant truth, with which they deal,
forcibly into the minds of the com
munity. If our statements seem to be ex
aggerated let anr one ask the retail
dealers of Honolulu what has been

commencement of the present year.
In three out of four instances he will
receive the same answer,

the wholesale houses will acknowl
edge the same. There was a slight
revival of trade at the commence
ment of the present quarter, but it
lasted only for a week or ten days.
The revival can be accounted for by
the fact that there was three months
credit to be obtained the, pernicious

t How much of the property now
mortgaged in the Kingdom would
realize the amount of its mortgages?
It would not pay the mortgagees to
realize, consequently extensions are
granted and foreclosures are not
pressed. How many wholesale or
retail business men in Honolulu, or
planters in the Kingdom, are pre
pared to face retrenchment in their
mode of living or in their working
expenses, which they know aiid feel
to be necessary ' We have heard only
' of one gentleman, a business man in

are not coiilciiv 1c roue.
One assignment, at least, has been
macle privately, and others Can be
made without the knowledge of the
public in general. If a man's busi

meet with more sympathy by a public;

and ultimately useless, attempts at
