view tlio course of the policy of our

of a hiibjiected disposition of Eng
land and Kmucu to supersede tile
native Government of Hawaii, made
the following declination:
''I cannot but be in conformity with

of oceaiij should bo lespectod, iind

tempi by any other povvet, should
such nttotnpt be thieatened ot fear
ed, to take possession of the islands,
colonize them, and subvert tho na
tive government. Considoiing,
theiefoie. that the United States
possesses so vei v latge a bhaie oT iu
loicouiso with tho-e islands, it is
deemed not unfit to make tho de
clination that their Government
seeks, neveitheless. no peculiai ad
vantage, no exclusive control over
tho Hawaiian Government, but is
content with its independent exist
ence, and iinxioublv wishes foi its s(..
cuiity and prospeiit. Its foibeai
iince in this respect undei tho eii
I'timstniioos of the veij large intoi
uouiso of their citiens with the isl
ands would justify this Government
should events hoioafter arise to re
quire it, in making a decided lenion
sli.ineo against the adoption of an
opposite poliev by am other power."'
ill. Tj lei's Secret ai 3 of State was '
Daniel AVebstei, who was also Socie
tal,) under Piesidenl Fillmoie. and i
ho ox))iessed the foiegoing slini;
ments in similiir kmguago:
"Five-bixths of thib conunoicial in
tercouiseis with tho United States,
and these considoiations, together
with otheis of a moio general char
actei, have fixed the como which
tho Government of the United
Stiitob will puiaiio in icg.iid to them.
The annunciation of this policy will
not suipn'su the Governments of
Euiope, noi be thought to bo un
reasonable l)j the liiitions of the
Icivili.ed vvoild; and that poliev is,
I that while tho Government of the
! United States its0lf, laithful to its
oiigiual assuinuce, bciiipulouslj re-
gaids the indepeiidenco of the ll.i
' vvaiian Islands, it c.in never consent 1
I to see tho-e islands taken possession 1
of by oithoi of tho great commeicial I
powers of Euiope; 1101 can it con
sent that demands manifestly unjust 1
and deiogatoij, and inconsistent
with a bona fide indepeudoiice, shall

It will, therefoie, be seen that
fully fift) ,vo;us ago our Government
laid down and promulgated the
policy which guides its action to
day. To complete this pait of the
stoiy it is noco-sarv to add that
within twelve months theieafter, on
the 28th of Novemboi, lblil, llicio
was .signed an agreement, si ylod ex
pressively a '"Declaration of Great
Britain and Franco lolativo to the
independence of the Sandwich Isl
ands." This agiueinont announced
that tho bov eloigns of these two
countiieb, in view of the existence of
a Government in the islands, capa
ble of piovidmg foi its relations,
"have thought it light to engage ro
eipiooallj to considoi tho Sandwich
Islands as an independent State, and
nevei to take possession either
directly 01 under title of proteotoi
ato, 01 under 11113 othoi foi 111 of an)
part of the temtor3 of which they
aio composed." It i, diflicult to see,
thoiofoie, how Gieat Britain could
to-clny, or at any tune 111 tho future,
consent to tho acceptance of a pro
tccloiato, no mattei what the
strength ol the petitions reported
to have been Intel)' ciioulnted in
Honolulu milking such a lcqucst.
Taking that stinting point wo find
that Fresident Fillmore, about ten
v'oar.s after t he declination of Presi
dent Tvloi, insisted that tho dosite
of our Government was that tho
Sandwich Islands "shall not pass
under tho control of any other great
maritime slate, bill shall remain in
an independent condition, and m be
accessible and useful to tho com
11101 en of all nations." This was after
tho discover of gold in California
had opened a wondotful future for
0111 Pacific Coast, so that ho was on
tiblod to sav thai "the iinpmtnnco
