?' ject. From the opening -entence.
which reads as follows. "Nobody
f' who has not lived in a dependency
can be fully aware how complete is
w, ,the want of national spirit, or how
' great the evils of the want of
national spirit me." one would inia-
ftf" Kino that the writer inu-t have lived
in a dependency in order to pen
fetich a entence. Hut, whether he
has or not, the statement is :i lie
I; upon the face of it. Although Hie
I, heading is general in its application
& the writer lias confined himself to
tlie Hritinh Colonic- in hi- aiticle.
and to the-c we -hall limit our
reply, lie-ays. "No pride is felt
m in the country." What does he sjiv
to Haitian disclaiming publicly )ie-
rlLjhig called an American and claiming
Jlhis ( anadian citizenship. And

l lniintlt icironp" in the heart of
every imp who elnlui il n hid imtlc
land. U there no pride of country
innn'fenl in Canada pledging all her
dMiwcft to the xpeedy consti notion !
nf the ( aundlnu raclllc KiiIIwti.n . to
unite with a bond of lecl eery
pint of her vat territory xtrotehiiiK
from the Atlantic to the l'aolllc?
Win there no )iitiioltsiu in Hie Utile
dependency of Nova Scotia when a
noble band of reformers w'lested
the privileges of n'spon-dlile (!ov
eruinent by constitutional agitation
from the Imperial authoritie- and
brouglit an end to the corrupt, cv
travagant and opjircssive rule of (he
Council of Twehe appointed by the
Crown? "Political ambition does
not look to il for Ihe highest
honors," -;iy- this writer, and yet
statesmen of both Canada and Aus
tralia haveiefiised the titular honors
olfered by their Sovereign because
the honors won in their own land
were greater in their estimation.
Only the other day Sir Chailes Tup
per, on the eve of his departure to
take the pot of Canadian High
Commissioner in London, in refer
ring to a rumor that his ambition wa
to obtain a seat in the Hritish Pail'a
niciit - a-- countrymen of his had
done before declared thai he
would prefer to remain the
lepiesentative of the constituency
that had leluincd him at every elec
tion for tw only-nine long years.
" I'atiiotism, in short, can hardly
be snid to exist," is another of his
misrepresentations. Yet the Aus
tralian colonies, as one man. icsolved
to back up (.Queensland in her annex
ation of New (iiiinca, and to band
together for the lesistauce. even to
war. if ueee aiy. against any for
eign power whatsoever thai might
daie lo inlerfeic." And the patrio
tic spirit of Canada has been so
manfully evpiessed on various occa
sions that the Hiitisli (Joveinnicnt
has found it wi-o to adopt the policy
of non-inteifeieuce with all her
affairs, while ictaining the respon
sibility of being her piotcctor. When
the -Marquis of Lome, (Jiieen Vic
toiia's viceroy, was dubious about
the couiso taken by the Canadian
Ministry in summarily dismissing a
(Jovernor of (.Juebec, and appealed
to Her .Majo-ty's Privy Council for
instruction-;, he was simply instructed
to follow the advice of his Ministers.
It was nothing but colonial patiio
tisui that led the Imperial authorities
to adopt the policy of making those
colonies that showed capacity for
self-government feel as little depend
ent as possible. That policy is fur
ther illustinted by Oieal Hiilain ac
cepting giacefully the imposition, by
dift'cient Australian colonies as well as
Canada, of tariffs piejudicial to her
commerce. " The restless caving
for the notice and patronage ol Eng
land, " ssiid by this degenerate
colonist to exist in the colonies,
may do so or not. but it i ceitain
that it exists, and always has existed,
in a large section of the population
of the Cniled States, and it can
baldly bo ssiid that the States sue a
dependency. As for llelgiiim and
Ecuador not doing the lame, that
may be -0, but to cite such out-of-
the-way and poky little states is but
a poor showing in an argument con
cerning such gieat lands, and peoples.
The writer also stales that a national
hymn can only come from the heait
of a nation. Does that imply that
the national hymn of Kngland came
from the heait of that nation? If
so, then the English nation had no
heait for the lirst thousand years of
its existence. Or did the Hawaiian
national anthem conic fiomthc heart
of this nation ? When Hie colonics
ically need national hymns they will
come to them. .Meantime they can
do without the frippery of national
fieedom while enjoying the patiio
tism of theii sons ami daughters,
oviilling in being cilieiis of the
gieatest einpiie in the woild and
proudly claiming their birth-place as
an integral pint of that cmpiie.
A REpWt QUESTIONED.
We have been handed correspon
dence that has taken place between
Dr. Wallers, (iovornincnt physician
at Liliuo. Kauai, and the Hon. Paul
Neither". It Im- reference to the
report ol a -peoch made by the
latter in the Legislature, which ap
peared in the Hn.ix'iis and con
tained the following passage:
"Jl'liey paid a doctor in Liliuo S 100
a year, and if he (the speaker)
wanted him to go a long distance he
nlwiiy ulilrhcd." Dr. Walter
wrlte to Mr. Uenberjj on AuguH
I'Jlh. imklng for a correction of lhl
latemonl. .Mr. Nonborg replies,
August llllli. stilting that ho I not
responsible for statement made
hi the flri.t.irm. and giving, us fai
ns ho recollects, a lopoit of what he
did oa, in the Legislature. This
report concludes with the following
leferencc to the (iovernnioul physi
cian at Llhuo. "If the natives shall
be benelltcd it requires that the
(loveiniiient physician goes ftom
place to place to visit the sick in
their own hnuos, and if I should
ak the doctor to do this ho would
shiik." Mr. Isenberg adds that he
had no intention to hurt Dr. Wal
ters', feelings or those of any other
man. The Doctor replies. Aujust
J.'Jd. stnting that personally he is
satislled with the explanation, but.
for the information of friends in
Honolulu and throughout the Isl
ands, he should feel obliged to have
a refutation of the statement pub
lished in the Hci.i.i.iin. Having
given the substance of the corres
pondence, we hope all parties arc
satisfied. Our report of Mr. Isen
berg's speech was necessarily a con
densed one, but his own version
made a fortnight afterward shows
that so far as it went it was accurate.
Ci.i reitpomlence is solicited on the tor
le ."f the day, or what may t'eeoine so.
We 11-lmm the light tii eese purely
We do not hold onrsehes responsible
for Ihe opinions epieei In our cor.
Km nut Hri.t.irnx: I am anxious
for a little information, and it is the
custom in my countiy when one is
alllicted that way to write to the
Kditor of one's favoiite paper to get
relief. I am occupying a little plot
of land on the other side of the hills,
of which I can spare about a quarter
of an acie for cultivating purposes.
1 have a constant supply of running
water and the soil is pretty good.
Now I would like to know what I
can cultivate on it wl !ch will bring
in a fair return for the labor and
money to be spent on it in the shape
of beauty, household provisions, and
a surplus for sate in the nearest
market. Or. if not possible to attain
all of these results, the best com
bination, or single one, of them.
I have scon some reference made
to an article wiitlen by Mr. Jaeger
on a similar subject which lias ap
pealed in the Planters' Afoiithh,
but I can not atfoid to subset ihe lo
that peiiodieal in the hope of getting
many similar iti tides, and J would
like, too, to see the subject In ought
down to a still moie practical state
ment than has yet been done. It is
all very well to tell me, inexperi
enced cultivator as I am, that India
rubber, cinchona, tamaiind, coik
oak, tea, coffee, spices, utulberiy
tree, llbrous plants, bee, cultuie,
&.c, will do for me what I want. I
need more than that. I need prac
tical and exact information sis to
what is the best and most suitable
for my circumstances sis detailed
above, wlieie and how to get that
best thing, and then what lo do with
it when I have got it. So, Mr.
Kditor, I appeal to you to do the
best you can for me to get that in
foimation. I am sure that there is
many another man on these islands
in similar circumstances who would
be also glad to know what I nm
asking you to tell me who would feel
as greatly obliged by it as

Kin inu Hri.i.inixi Though the
(iovornniont support a nursery which
under the able superintendence of
Mr. Jaeger is doing good work in
renovating the forests of the islands,
they have never yet made any
attempt to line our principal streets
with shade trees, which in this
climate at e greatly needed. What
a noble vista might be made on
Heretania or King street toward
Waikiki, by planting a low of Hoyal
or Date Palms on each side of the
street. How cool a row of Monkey
pods or Poniciana Hogiu would make
a drive lo Kalilii. How tropical the
aspect of Queen street with a row of
Kan-Palms on each side, and last.
but not least, how fine the Hnxwix
ollice would look with a tree on each
side of the entrance under whose
refreshing shade you might sit and
cool your heated brain after worrying
out n few more yawls of dldloynlty

THE COFFEE ROOMS.

Now in reference to "A Coffee

to see such an enterprise iindei taken,
and carried out in first-class style,
or hoi at all. Hut the Y. M. ('. A.
could easily carry on the work suc

more than willing .to undertake its

In closing permit me to suggest
that any interested in this subject

SLIPS OF THE TYPES.
"Two young men desires situa

the young uieii only desiio situations,
but the box is broke beyond lepair.
However, sis one good turn deserves
another, we submit for revisal some
choice morocls from to-day's Adver
tiser, lis leader begins with this
w:ld attempt sit pigeon Knglisli:
"Hetneen the Poituguese and
Japanese immigrant there can lie no
choice." Its shipping notc3 open
with the disloyal .statement that
"The oight-onfrm boat of His Ma
jesty, now in coui.se of construction
by Mr. Sorrciison, is undoubtedly
the best of the kind cut built in this
city." As if one sti oke of treason
was not enough, it says elsewhere,
"When His Majesty the King went
down to the steamer last evening to
sec the 10 lepers off, he was pro
fundly affected." This is a terrible
lapse from the position occupied by
our contemporary yesletday. when
it ground out between its metaphori
cal teeth that the King "must not
be insulted with impunity." Kcvert
ing to the editorial columns we find
this intelligent proposition, "This
changed position, if judiciously con
sidered by Knglisli Government, can
not but be to the advantage of Kng
land, since an interest that can be
measuied is one that can be
inctlliijcnll; dealt with." How
Knglisli Government can consider
anything is a problem that cannot bo
ineJlliientli dealt with. Lastly,
our contemporary makes an adver
tiser call for building uiafeiial to be
delivcrnd at Kaakopua. The Morn
in (j Guide is a little nettled over our
well-meant efforts, to repair its broken
diction, but we ate piepated to en
dure some little allliction for the
biethren's sake. This morning it
has the following specimens: "An
unwisely witty critic gives the public
a sample of his mine's nesting in
one of Wednesday's vontemporia
rics, because of the outin- of it lino
in the make up of a paragraph In
Wednesday's Guide Headers of to
morrow's Pi ess will please note Hie
paragraph as wiltten." The Hi i.
u. rix U not a "coutemporiary," and
It never mentioned the "omis- of a
line," and never saw "Wednesday's
Guide Headers," etc. Speaking of
n person innhing sleeping arrange
menu foi hlnmelf and two friend
on a nloainei' deck, il says, "Ho
llion niado himself as iiairow as possible-
and laid down between thein,"
hut omits to uy whether it was an
ocean cable he laid down between
litem, or what. This sago collection
it makes upon shipping, "The
steady dopui lures of shipping for
eign and coastwise, and Ihe almost
total absence of arrivals since the
lirst of the week has londeied the
haibor quite and comparatively
bate." How those things
"has" made the harbor at once
quite bare and only compaiatively
so, tortures us exceedingly. Ileigho,
we have tuulci taken too big a con
tract, and shall have to throw it up,
with the hope that the journal that
began scouting for typographical
errors has got enough of it. It is a
small business, except when the mis
takes ate comical, as has been the
case when we were the aggtessor.
Last evening, at his residence on
Mellaril Street, Mr- J. W. Plluger,
the Russian Vice-Consul, gave an
elegant reception inhouorof Kdoitard
Heiuenyi, the great violinist. The
grounds wore brilliantly illuminated,
and at intervals throughout the
evening colored lights were burned.
The Hoyal Hawaiian Hand was pres
ent and under the diiection of its
able bandmaster played some fine
selections. A large number of in
vited guests were present. Soon
after 8 o'clock attention was directed
to the spacious parlor, where
Hemeiiyi was found with his "Prin
cess" iolin. Ho played, and how
be did play ! Wo cannot find words
to oppress such playing as was heard
last evening. It was a icvclation.
.Miss Downing sang very prettily and
Mr. Luekstone played a Nocturne by
Chopin in a masterly manner. Mr.
Dimmer did not -big, as he is suffer
ing from si slight throat complaint.
Kxccllent lefreshments were served,
to which all the guests did ample
justice. The Hand then played the
Honolulu Hitlos March, after which
Heiuenyi played .Schubert's Serenade,
one of the best things he plays.
Soon afterward the guests began to
depart, but not before they had
thanked the host for Hie right royal
way he had entertained them.
