THE PACIFIC MAIL.
On the Coast and elsewhere on
tho Continent, tho apprehended
withdrawal of the Pacific Mail
Steamship Company from the Aus
tralasian sci vice is exciting consider
able discussion. The directors of
the Company declaied a dividend
of one and a half percent., at their
meeting in New Yoik on the loth
inst., and were represented as ex
pressing satisfaction with tho condi
tion of affairs. "No tears were
shed over the loss of the City of
Tokio, and no regrets uttered in
consequence of the withdrawal of
the Australian subsidy." One of
the directors said after the meeting:
"Wo had intended to abandon the
Australian service anyhow unless
the subsidy was increased; now that
the subsidy is withdrawn, the mat
ter is settled. The abandonment of
the Australian service will do away
with the necessity of replacing tho
City of Tokio, as the company, I
think, owns steamers enough to do
all of its business." The payment
of the dividend declared as stated
willrcquhc about 200,000. After
paying this amount it is claimed that
they will still have a cash balance
of 8100,000. No serious conse
quences are anticipated by the Poat
Olllce officials in "Washington, fiom
the change of mails to the English
route from the Australasian line. It
would make fourteen days longer for
the New Zealand mail, which would
be the greatest increase. A despatch
from the capital says: "The Pacific
Mail people are credited with having
stiired up most of the trouble. It
is charged that they brought inllu
ences to bear upon the other Ameri
can companies and cajoled them into
a quarrel with the Government. The
department is treating the declara
tions of the steamship lines with all
seriousness, but thcie is a strong im
pression that threat of lef using the
mails after this month is only a bluff
and that the American companies
will not give up a poition of their
business which, without a subsidy,
paysthem very well." In San Fran
cisco, the matter is lcgarded with
moie anxiety. The trade with the
Colonies is there regarded as no
light portion of foreign commerce to
throw overboard. San Francisco
papers give statistics, showing
that the total imports of merchan
dise into the United States from
Australasia in the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1881, were $1,373,-1C5;
exports from the United States dur
ing the same period, 8'J,387,320;
imports of coin and bullion to that
country from Australasia for tho
same peiiod, $3,GG6,311, making a
total business of 817,433,333. From
that city the exports to Australasia
since 1881 were:
While the Colonies pay tho Pa
cific Wail Company 8300,000 a year
in mail subsidies, the total sums
paid for tho scrvico by the United
States for bcvcral years past have
only been as follows: 1882, 89,
913.58; 1883, 810,881.12; 1881,
812,521.01; 1885, 80,821. -11. There
was to have been a protest pies
ented, at the meeting of the San
Francisco Chamber of C'ommerco
on tho 21st inst., against tho failuio
to give support to the Australasian
mail service. Mr. A. 13. Spreckels,
of the firm of J. I). Spreckels &
Bros., managers of the Oceanic

Company, upon being asked by n
reporter if that Company would put
on an additional steamer and under
take the Colonial trade, in the event
of the Pacific Mail withdrawing,
said the matter hail not been con
sidered by the dircetots, and
had scatcely received the at
tention of the uioiubeis of the
linn, lie said that, with n third
steamer, their Company could handle
the Austinlian trade by way of Ho
nolulu if it vvcic profitable. Tho
opinion of Col. Dec, formcily con
nected with tho "Webb line on (lie
loule in question, was that without
a subsidy no line could compete with
the P. & O. line fiom England to
Australia. Ho thought it would be a
great misfortune to tho Pacific Coast
if the Australian line was w ilhdrawn.
The San Francisco press has come
to the defense of silk-raising against
the ridiculous kid-gloved criticism
of New York papers. Thcic is
nothing more degrading in the busi
ness than in any other description
of light form work. Some of the
first ladies in California aic taking
practical interest in the industiy.
In to-day's issue we give, fiom
the P. C. Advertiser of Juno lltli,
1857, the official leport of Capt.
John Paty, of an exploring expedi
tion he commanded to the islets
standing sentry to this group. The
document will be read with interest
now that the exploring spirit is again
upon the kingdom. One notable
thing it reveals is the unreliability
of some of the old chaits of these
seas. The captain lcfcired to is the
present esteemed pattner in
banking house of Bishop & Co.
The origin of the visit of a Special
Commissioner of the Emperor of
Japan, to this kingdom, is revealed
in a piece of new s from that Empire
by the mail arrived to-day. It ap
pears a statement had been made
that the recent immigrants to Ha
waii were discontented with the
place, and that numerous deaths
among them had occurred. Emi
gration to Hawaii has therefore
been prohibited, pending an inquiry
instituted into the alleged ill-treatment
by sugar planters of Japanese
