Dnblished to-dav. amending Section 7SS of
the Gril Code, gives to the voter the far-

in that he may inclose his ballot in a seal-

The President of tht day, Col. Z. S.
Spauldlug, Acting Minister-Resident, made
the following Introductory remarks:
FeCote Qyvxtryncn Ladies and Cnn:
To the accidental absence of our Minister
Resident, who is unfortunately prevented br
severe Illness from returning to hit post, 1
owe the high honor of being called to pre
side over your rejoicings here to-day.
Upon an occasion like this, when you as
Americans, and friends of America, are
gathered together to commemorate the day
that gave birth to onr nation, and to cele
brate the anniversary of an act by which " life,
liberty, and the pursuit ot happiness" were
guaranteed to untold millions. It is fitting
that he who is charged and empowered by
our Government with the care of her in
tents and the protection of her citiiens npon
these Islands, should congratulate yon upon
the prosperous close of an old, and the aus
picious opening of a new year in the history
oi our oeiovea counuy. il is, meraurc,
with the consciousness that J represent,
however unworthily, the Minister-Resident,
upon whom you are accustomed to look as
the representative of the justice, dignity and
power of our country, and that I but express
his sentiments when I say to you that I feel
"it it good to be here."
This is no unmeaning show. "o Idle or
curious motive calls you forth from the du
ties of business or the pleasures of home.

that the experiment oi self-government has
sot failed; that the Republican bubble has
not burst; that, tried by the fiery ordeal of
civil war, our country has comb forth n 1th a
new lustre and glory to her friends, and a
warning to her foes. It means that you,

to a conspiracy existing on Manjrou to cut
off the Morning Star, should she visit it, we
can find no proof that such exists, or that
any natives have been put up to such an idea
by the foreigners trading there. It is one of
those rumors which grow from malicious
ness or a petty hostility .among men thrown
in each other's way down there.
We learn on inquiry from reliable sources,
that the rumors regarding Captain Pease,
who has charge of a trading interest there,
are untrue, and that so far from absenting
himself, he is in China with a venture of
goods, baring chartered the Guam brig Ana
to take bis cargo from Ascension to Shang

next falL Letters from officers who are un
der him speak in commendatory terms of his
management of business asd tbe manner of
his intercourse with the natives of those
groups. We believe that the reports of the
cocoanut oil traders about each other must
be accepted with mnch allowance. At the j
nest tne business is a cangeross as well as a
precarious one, carried on as it is, on most of
the islands, with savages, who are under no
law but their own win, and who have little
fear of punishment from national vessels for
outrages committed on cither traders or ves
sels. Necessarily, the men left on the sta
tion are not drawn from the upper-ten cf
society, or governed in their talk or transae
tions by tbe strictest code of honor. There
is no law on those solitary atolls to regulate
competition and compel respect to another's
rights, and hence the law of tbe strongest or
the sharpest, is sometimes put into requisi
tion to obtain control of the trade.
There are several vessels engaged In the
business, which is managed by patting a can
on an Island, with goods, and casks for the
oS, which is collected in driblets from time
to tice, and finally is called" for by the Tea
sel on her trip cf collection. The ecu: peti

The filth public annual examination of this
