Tho letter of "A Foreigner,"
advocating a national army and
navy, published ami partially com
mented upon the other day, calls
for" a few further observations. As
regards the protection of domestic
property, the most that is required
for permanent duty is an clllcient
police force. The establishment of
a mounted police force has, how
ever, been attempted and abandoned.
It was found that the services ren
dered did not come up, in nature or
degree, to a fair proportion with the
expense. If n satisfactory mounted
police could not be maintained by
the country, how in the world arc
we going to raise and maintain an
clllcient military establishment?
Where arc the men to serve in a
standing army to come from V Will
the native race be cnlistc'd or impress
ed into the service? If its dcsti no
tion is to be hastened, no surer
means could be adopted. Not be
cause the worst use to put men to is
to make them food for gunpowder,
but because the life of the camp in
times of pence is very demoralizing
and would be peculiarly so to tho
plastic Hawaiian. Tho evils would
only, be nggiavatcd to him by asso
ciating him with other nationalities.
Shall we have an army of foreigners?
Such could scarcely be raised here,
without robbing the plantations of
their best labor or ridding them or the
worst. In the first eventuality, it
would bo bad for our chief industry,
and in the second bad for the army.
It is to be feared that the nation
would be shut up to the necessity of
inviting recruits from abroad for its
standing army. Are the advocates
of a military establishment prepared
to ask the country to stake its secu
rity upon the protection of merce
nary troops, drawn from the slums
of great cities abroad?
Our correspondent has aigucd
that wo can afford the expense of an
army, by comparing our revenue and
commerce with those of certain
European third-rate pefwers that
have- big armaments. Comparisons
between things extensively dissi
milar arc utterly worthless. Those
old countries are not in such need of
permanent improvements as this
infant nation. They have niunicip.il
institutions for the local government
of towns, counties, and so on, with
ample local wealth to sustain them ;
whereas our revenue is spread over
local as well as national services in
every town, village and district of
tho kingdom. The disparity of con
ditions might be pursued further,
but what is tho use of discussing a
new object of expenditure while all

Tho venerable editor of the Friend,
in n retrospect of his Journalistic
career of over forty years, says,
"Wo attribute our uniform good
health for over half u century to our
observance of this principle of total
abstinence from all intoxicating
liquors as a lievcrago."
There is a great difference of
opinion as to the amount of silver
requited for circulation. A gentle
man connected with a large planting
concern said to-day that 8000,000
would be none too much. An edi
torial in the .Ulocrliacr says the
same, arriving at its conclusion by
elaborate comparisons between the
case of this and the cases of other
countries. Mr. Jones, by a similar
process, comes at S100,000 as the
due amount. Who knows, and who
can know short of a practical test?

A norri.i: was thrown overboard
from tho German man-of-war Lcip
sig, on March 10, 1883, in latitude
ll-r.O-G feouth, longitude lOGMO'JIG
cast, during the voyage of that ves
sel from Valparaiso to Honolulu.
The bottle was picked up by the
brig City of Pcpcctc, on June 2 1 ,
1881, in latitude 18M0 south, longi
tude I'M west of Paris, on the
coast of the Island of Negonego,
one of the Paumota group, south of
the Marquesas group, and sent to
San Francisco by the brig Tahiti. A
paper enclosed in the bottle with a
printed form on cacli side, one filled
up by the captain who scut the thing
adrift, and the other to bo filled up
by the finder, was turned over to tho
Branch Ilydrographic Olllcc, and
was to have been forwarded to Ger
many. The bottle was picked up
over L',000 miles from where it was
thrown into the sea, the object being
to ascertain the direction of the cur
rents in ho Pacific Ocean for the
benefit of hydrographic knowledge,
to which nil of the maritime nations
arc now directing much attention.
A Bkumx telegram of Nov. 19th
slates that an agreement has about
been concluded between England and
Germany, whereby the Congo Con
ference will establish rules relative
to trade on the Niger River, entrust
ing to England the execution of the
agreement. Tho idea of tho formation
of an International Commission has
been abandoned. At the meeting of
the Conference on the 18th Nov., the
delegate from Portugal read a memo
randum insisting on Portugal's right
to the Congo, when John A. Kasson,
American delegate, replied, pointing
out " somewhat sarcastically that
Henry M. Stanley in all his long
journeys on the lower Congo had
been unable to discover any signs of
such Portuguese dominion or civiliz
ing influences as were now claimed,
lie had in fact, said Kasson, found
everything and everybody but Portu
