Foit St. Chinch, Prayer Electing
St. Aiuliew's Cathedral, usual
An eminently sensible editorial on
the stagnant condition of our politics
appeared in last night's Hullctln.
The Bulletin's consistent endorse
ment of the idea that organization
is vital to the accomplishment of
any political good is timely and
It seems foolish for people to ex
pect permanent benefit from a
change of Ministry, without the new
incumbents being bound to a defi
nite policy in respect to the princi
pal living issues of the day. Even
Ministers the best intentioned and
the most eminently qualified cannot
work much improvement in the
government of this kingdom, unless
there exist reciprocal confidence and
fidelity belween them and the people.
These clementb of hainioity, cohc
siveness and strength must have
their basis in a common cause.
That, however, must not consist in
the interests of oilicc-seckcrs, sup
ported by the masses as voluntary
vassals. It must be a patriotic
cause first, last and all the time,
with the beltcimcnt of the nation its
supieme object. The commanding
interest of National Reform must
have lcadeis to bear its standatds.
But these must be sought by all the
people who maybe prcpaicd to enter
upon ineprcssiblc antagonism to
government in the interest of ollice
holders and that of the dictators,
monopolists and oligarchs who
hoastcdly carry the whole machinery
and all the machinists of state in
their pockets. Self-seeking politi
cians ought not be allowed to steal
the principles of righteousness in
whieli the national motto declaics
the nation aha.Il be established.
They must not by such grand lar
ceny be enabled to masquerade as
high-minded patuols, and so de
ceive the multitude into pushing
them up to the seats of power.
It has on diffeicnt occasions oc
cuncd to us that the pi ess is not
accorded any too much considera
tion in .Honolulu. The proraotcis
and rannngcrs of fetes and fleeting
shows' 'of vaiious kinds are very
mindful of the newspapers prior to
the events. They arc then very
solicitous legauling the editorial and
rcportorial difficulty of finding some
thing to "fill up" the space of
journals. This thoy show by gen
erous contributions of advertising
matter, which, they say, will be
" news" to the leaders, and there
fore ought to be inserted f ice Of
couisc, editors and icportcrs know
nothing about the kind of news their
rendeis arc willing to pay for. But,
if the bare announcement of good
things to come is welcome news, no
matter how piivatc the iuleiests to
be primarily benefited, then surely
accurate descriptions of the "affaiis"
after their occurrence will be mani
fold more pieeious intelligence.
Yet, with strango inconsistency, the
remarkable solicitude for the en
lightenment of tho public often
droops just at the point where nc-tli-fiig
moic can be done in tho way of
drumming up public patronage for a
particular enterprise. Just there
the promoters of tho event seemingly
.determine to have their own irnpe
cuniosity with rcgaid to the press
offset by compelling journalists to
adopt a suppliant attitude toward
themselves. They know that ninety
percent uioic of newspaper readers
arc interested in knowing how tho
event came off than weic In tho fact
that It was to take place. Therefore,
it becomes a necessity for tho ic
poller to obtain facilities for pio
cuiing u full and accurate account.
So thoy, having humbled themselves
to crave for free advertising, now
let the newspaper man beg for
free (?) access to the affair they
aie engincciing. Many honorable
exceptions to this method of doing
things have come under our notice
licic. Yet a Rulllcicnt number of
iuslnnucu of the conduct desciibcd
above liae occuncd, to prove that
tho community as a whole will not

legitimate privileges of tltc ptcss.

In this issue Mr. Crowley tears a
nice little historical romance to
pieces. Our correspondent would
have been a terror on tho heels of
"I. M." is rather hard upon our
morning contemporary's estimate of
the foreign electorate of the United
States. It was piobably only meant
to illustrate the soundness of that
paper's faith in univcisal suffrage.
Some Chinese in town have a story
that one of their countrymen has
made a passage from San Francisco
to China on a flying machine; in
twenty-four hours. The speed, na
turally, -was so Blctlt that the bold
aeronaut could not cat a bite the
whole way. If the story is true, tho
Bultxtik will have full particulars
of the stupendous exploit within
three hours after the next steamer
arrives from the Coast. Behold our
President Cleveland shows soino
legal d for the antecedents of men
aspiring to office. He has revoked
the commission of James Blackburn,
as Internal Revenue Collector for
Lexington, Kentucky, because of a
letter wiitten by that man in 18G1.
Blackburn is a brother of Senator
Joe Blackburn, and the letter in
question, which was to his wife,
contained the most violent language
against the Union and its defenders.
The closing sentence, one of the
mildest, read, " I want to sec Union
blood lun deep enough for my horse
to swim in."
"AN INCIDENT OF THE CIVIL WAR."
Editor Bullktik: I was much
amused by the article under the
above heading in your issue of the
21st inst., copied from the Chicago
Tribune of May 30th, rcfcriingto
the historic episode known as the
"Trent Affair." I am loth to dis
sect a romance which reads so neatly ;
which gives our Queen of England
cicdit for an excellence of heatt
which we all know her to possess,
and which has over been shown in
her desire to draw closer the frater
nal bonds of the Anglo-Saxon family
on botli sides of the ocean. But
the merest tyro in the history of
those days must know that the
whole nan alive or "anecdote" of
Thurlow Weed hangs upon grotesque
pegs of fiction. First, we arc told,
"Thurlow "Weed was in London,
having been sent there with others
by thU Government to induce the
Quecirto iccognizc the blockade of
the southern ports." Tho United
States Minister to England then was
Mr. Adams, and as the Queen docs
not receive deputations and but
raiely confers with an ambassador
of a foreign state, except through
her proper minis tcis; and as such
ministers never recognize more than
one representative of a foreign
power; arc we to assume that Mr.
Weed broko though this loyal re
serve and watched the private doings
in tho royal ante-chanibcr and bed
room as easily as he might do at the
White House? Possibly Thuilow
Weed nnd his fiicnds intended "lob
bying" the House of Commons and
found that occupation not yet known
at Westminster. Again, "For the
first time since 1815 the navy yaids
were woiking double-handed night
and day." This is nbsuul, for the
excitement which never led govern
ment or people- to expect war did
not last more than three weeks or a
month. lu'incntioninglBlO, Hip Van
Winkle must have slept over 1834
and ft, when England's naal yards
weie busy in her war with Russia.
Again, Loul John Russell was
Minister of Foicigu Affairs and it
would be his place and not Lord
Pnlnicrston's, to wait upon the
Queen to consult upon foreign
matters. Can it be possible that
any intelligent Ameiicau could sup
pose an English statesman such a
puppet as to allow the Queen to
dictate, much less the Queen's hus
band, to mutilate nnd dictate, his
despatches. Nor was tho Ptlnco
Consort then in his "last, or any
illness. Several months after this
ho died, after aboilt a week's illness
of gastric fever.
England wns indignant truly for
the insult offered to her Hag ; but
there was no "loud cry for war,"
nor did the country "demand war."
In England then a now the political
power washeld by the middle classes,
who being powerful in the sense of
ability to control, nic not given to
noise, and the surging of a non-en-franchised
mob on one side, or the
shriek of aristocracy on tho other,
arc powciless to vnftve this 'phalanx
of power. , .
Perhaps tho best, if not the only
hue test of public opinion, would
be found in tho icccptionof the. Ki
voy of the confederacy, MaSOil.
Hi's conjrcre Slidcll was received
with some show of ostentation by
the French Government as a duly?
accredited ambassador, for nothing
would have pleased Napoleon better
than to have his Mexican expedition
Hanked by the support of even the
The blunder of intercepting the
"Trent" enabled Mason to' poso as
a martyr under the protcction,,o'f,his
deliverer ; iC was jusE what a inaii in
his position might piay for; but
when he was landed in England, (
that was all hnglaml wanted with
him. Ilis credentials were not read,
nor did ho receive any official recog-
nition. Ho then visited the cotton'
districts and lectured, uiging the
starving thousands to demand from
the government a recognition of
the confederacy, the raising of
tho blockade, and cotton and
food would be their reward.
But be it recorded to tho honor of
those true men, the starving opera
tives of Lancashire, that when it
was known that Mason represented
a confederacy based upon slavery as
the corner stone of its constitution,
they said (aftciTom Moore),
" Although wc loe eoltoiiand food in
Sir Knight, we love ficcdoin and honor
But a sneatcr than 'Mason -now
came on the scene, and invited
inspection of- another picture : the
integrity of tho Union without slave
ry "the free heart's'-hope and
home." Permit me to give honor
to whom honor .is due. When
Mason and Slidell were landed on
United States soil by Commodore
Wilkes, thcic was one man in New
York1 who took in the situation at a
glance. He knew the English 1pc
plc, and was known by them as a
ehjimpion ofthuniaq'igbts,and while
Commodore Wildes' -wh's. 'enjoying
a banquet, this inan twas hastening
to London the scene of excitement.
Ho was the first to '..pioulaim to the
World Lincoln's policy of cmancipa
tion. Armed with thisrliispccrless'
eloquence blew every confederate
windbag of a journal to tatters. He
ha'd on his side 'such men as Lord
Shaftesbury, Cobden,--Bright.- For
weeks he stood in "the imminent
deadly breach,"his peerless eloquence
pounding every inch of free British
soil from under the fect.ofMason.in
England, and by the ajd of the press,
he neutralized Slidell's efforts, 'in(
France. All honor to thp Queen,
one of whose first acts was to con
cede to the States a strip of disputed
tciritory, now part of Maine. Honor
to the people who were true to., prin
ciple on the question of "Union or
confederacy. But when this inci
dent of the Civil War shall be writ
ten by the prosaic pen of a future
Froude or Motley, one name will
stand out in hold relief, .that of
