was woll suppled with money nnd

upon having his faro from Sydney
to Newcastlo refunded, and that

Hawaiian sugar has for twenty
years been ndmitted to the United
, States freo of duty by reciprocity

reanoii can 00 given against nn-
noxntiou than tho ono suggested,
wo think the opposition milit
hang up their fiddlo. The
fact is, that if the Hawai
ian Republic still desires nn-

j back to tho proposition tho pro-
for nnuoxntioii. Tho fact is, that
it liarnsou had ueon mvon an-
I linvo reversed tho action. Clovo
laud's cntiro course in tho mattor
was tho most farcical thing in our
history. Tho loading Republic ot
tho earth was mado to appear as tho
champion of an effete monarchy,
and it is still au opeu question if
Congress had not taken prompt
action as to a positive attempt to
i- J rehabilitate this monarchy. The
- j lato Minister Willis, now dead,
was a pliant tool in Ulevoland's
hands, and Blount was scut thore
for that purpose, but tho Hawai
iaus wero just a littlo too wiso to
submit to any such thing. They
now havo n very creditable gov

Bulletin that thoy would profor
autonomy with tho States to con
tinued independence. If so, let
them mnko an official statement of
tho fact, aud Hawaii will surely
