Argument vb. Coercion.
The friends of annexation are giv
ing us an illustration of American
politics, and a foretaste of tho me
thods of conducting tho futuro af
fairs of the Paradise of tho Pacific,
which, it occurs to me, are not at all
calculated to induce tho conserva
tive class (who have not yet been
heard from by the way) to ondorso
their wishes, should the futuro show
that a ballot must be taken before
their great ambition can be attained.
It does not seem to occur to tho
"powers that be" and their friends,
that the Government of the Great
Republic, after due investigation,
may consider the wishes of, and
weigh the advantages or otherwise
to her sixty million citizens as against
the desires of a comparatively in
significant handful of her people
who have seen fit to desert her shores
for a foroign land, whore they have
thriven mainly by tho bounty of
their own country. Under these
circumstances, being undoubtedly
patriotic Americans all, should they
not first consider the great advan
tages to be derived by the United
States from the annexation of Ha
waii? Now I don't think it has been
shown either b the systematic boy
cotting of everyone who has not
duly fallen in with tho idea, or the
coercion so obviously and persistent
ly practised, just where this great
patriotism comes in. The one and
only argument seems to be that the
United States must annex Hawaii
because having landed hor ship's
company, behind whom we revolved
in perfect security, and laid down
our lives freely, she cannot bo guilty
of tho folly of doing justice to those
ignorant natives! Very convincing,
as is also tho evidence of disinterest
edness shown in the appointments
to office of nine of tho fourteen
original Provisional Legislature.
Now would it not bo more to the
purpose if estimates were carefully
prepared, showing that when tho
sugar bounty has been discontinued
and the dut3' on sugars from foreign
countries (other than those insignifi
cant producers with whom the
United States has already entered
into reciprocity treaties, such as
Spain, including Cuba, Germany,
Belgium, and several others) has
been imposed, and wo are annexed,
wo shall be able to realize handsome
profits on our sugar investments
($30,000,000) notwithstanding tijo
two or three freights wo have to piiy
and the trifling disadvantage Jf
having to employ free labor, in
creased taxes, and a few otter
trifles, and that wo shall then bo
able to offer employment at rrir
wages to every Hawaiian? Womd
not this be more convincing argu
ment? In short, would it not be
more like common sense, more prac
tical, more truly American, to con
vert tho sceptics by argument of tho
advantages to bo gained by both tho
United States and Hawaii, instead
of doing all in their power to create
friction and ill-feeling among all
classes? And would it not bo more
honorable for tho United States to
annex these islands if sho wants
thorn oponly by conquest, than to
do so under tho cover of an alleged
but impossible revolution?

comiort ana convenience of passen

ington publish very useful pilot and
wreck charts of tho North Atlantic,
pointing out tho great numbor of
derelicts that aro floating about tho
Atlantic in tno track of stoamors to
and from Europo and America. Tho
pilot chart for February last shows
45 derelicts afloat in the North At
lantic, 25 of which woro in tho vicin
ity of Transatlantic steamers. Two
instances may bo mentioned, viz.:
tho W. L. White drifted 5910 miles
in 310 days, reported 45 timos. Tho
Wyer G. Sargent drifted 5500 miles
in 615 days, reported 3-1 timos.
It has been siiRKestod that all
steamers ought to carry a few car
rier pigeons on board, so that in case
of a break down of machinery, or in
the case of the loss of tho vessel
with all hands there might be time
to write a fow lines stating how,
wher, and whoro the loss occurred,
and in tho event of the crew boing
savdd in the boats, messages indicat
ingthe position of tho boats, and in
wh.it direction they wore proceed
ing, could be despatched by these
pigeons, which possibly might not
succeed in reaching land, but they
certainly would bo able to keep on
the wing till they encountered a
passing steamer, which, if it could
not itself go to tho assistance of tho
shipwrecked crow, would at least
convey the message- to land whence
assistance could bo sent.
