That day was from that time lortb celebrated
as tie day cn which the twq kings met in

So it is, that when brethren go to war
with each other, they are sure to find that
each gets hurt; then comes the person who
knows the genealogy of the families, and
through his persuasions the chiefs discon
tinue the war and meet as friends. So met

inhabitants stood mauka from the shore, and
Peleiohotani, the King of Kauai was the only

( vr T!ni-rr ThItr , th"l..(
Lcsisiaiire), Assembly, regarding contracts
between masters and servants, was meant to
insure a fait nndcrstandlng in tho brgioDlcg,
between the parties to tho contract, ot tha
terms agreed upon, acd therefore provided
that it should bo Qad la both Isnjruages,
the Hawaiian aad English. It also provide
that the Minister cf Interior shall Issue a
form of contract, but rendering nch
form obligatory, except lu to far as it might
be nrged upon the courts, In case ot suit,
that it U lmpltCi in tho law that tho form
prescribed by the Minister was tho one de
signed by the Legislators for general use.
But as I underitanatneu vf agreements,
parties may agree among themselves to any
conditions, and if properly drawn, and law
ful in themselves as to the acts to be per
formed, ther must be held to the perform-
" Parsed, by the courts, without any
. . . . J
damage by reason of the particular form in
which the contract may be drawn. Hence,
though the Minister of the Interior may
publ'sh a form, It still remains to private
parties to modify or change its terms, as may
snit the circumstances or the ends proposed
in their agreements, subject at all times, of
course, to the law as held by the Courts.
The form, as published in the Gazette, I
consider exceedingly objectionable; and the
form at present In common use is preferable,
and will preserve better the rights of master
and servant. The private forms lu general
use provide stipulations as to time, character
of service, obedience on the part oi the ser
vant to all lawful commands of the principal,
or those deputed under him as lucas, the
amount of wages, and the further stipula
tion that he will work out whatever debt he
may owajgr reason of advances or over
paymeutsput makes co provision that the
master shall be insured against loss by reason
of the sickness or inability of the servant.
Justice, as between the parties, requires that
a contract should expressly state that the
laborer agrees to fulfill six or twelve mouths
(as the case may be), in actual work, com
puted at the rate of twenty-six days per
month, from the date of the contract.
Ifls the custom on some plantations,
especially where the laborer has a house of
his own, and neither sleeps cor eats on the
plantation, to count his month by the dajs'
work, as shown by the time-book, not by
the lapse of time as marked by the calendar
month, and so soon as twenty-six days work
Is noted on the book, the month's wages are
due and paid.
But this custom does not find expression
in the words of the contract, which Is drawn
cp in general terms, and expresses a definite
period one, two, or three years as the
period of service. Some of the magistrates
interpret the contracts to mean working
days, and hence ascertain from the time
book the number of days' service actcally
rendered, acd reckoning them at twenty-six
to the month, adjudges whether the contract
has expired or cot Other magistrates un
derstand the contract time to refer to the six
or twelve months immediately succeeding the
date of the agreement, without any reference
to the other condition, viz. : labor performed.
Thns, if a man contracts, say Jan. I, to work
for 13 months, and is sick the whole time,
not performing a single day's labor, he has,
nevertheless, accomplished his part of the
agreement, and must be paid and discharged.
If a laborer wilfully, or without leave, ab
sents himself from work, the law allows the
master redress by rendering the laborer liable
for two days to every one that he has so ab
sented himself, but in cases of unavoidable
absence, or inability through protracted sick
cess, the master, by the interpretation as
given by some magistrates, has co redress,
cor security, against loss.
By the custom cf the country, it is cow
impossible to obtain men on contracts with
out large advances in cash; in some cases
extending to more than half the stipulated
wages for a year. In the new forms, pro
vision should be made that .this advance
be charged to the laborer, acd be paid out
of his monthly wages; or the contracts
might specUy-tbe" advance as a bonus, with
so much per month as wages, which must be
reduced so much per mouth as would make
a fair rate for the year, both amounts com
bined. Such a system would have great; ad
vantages, and it would undoubtedly rJieck
the tendency which the men have to over
draw their wages, through the purchase of
It is not stated In the contracts, as given
In the Gazette, that the men shall obey the
orders cf the lucas, as well as those of the
managers. They often allege, as an excuse
for neglect of duty, that the orders did cot
come direct from the prineipaL
It is stated that laborers shall be shipped
in a certain capacity, or for specified work,
bat in miscellaneous plantation work It is
Impossible to specify In which particular de
partment the men win be needed. To-day,
it is In cultivating the fields ; to-morrow, in
the boHicg-house; another day, hauling
wood, or taking care cf cattle. Xeither, in
many instances, can it be known, when the
men ship, in what particular work they will
be the most useful and serviceable.
The third provision cf the contract is ab
solately unnecessary. When men desire to
reahip, before the expiration of the con
tracts, the old cue is -voided by adding Its
unexpired terra to that agreed to In the new,
acd the cew contract is substituted for the
It teems, therefore, to me, that the law
bears harder upon the employer than upon
the men, for it is in their option not to ex
tend their obligations by, large advance!, by
getting into debt, or by deserting their work
unlawfully; whereas, the employer must
run the risk t ' V-icg the labor for which he
tat paid an a. 1 '-e, either by the death of
the man during hi term of contract, or by
aa accidental or unavoidable i Icksets. The
forms of coc tract which fcaTC been is use

M. de Lessens tha other day at the meeting
of the Suex Canal Company! The only dan
ger he ran was that of being smothered by
congratulations, or of dying under the too
fervent orrcAtdVs of his enthusiastic off ion
dirts The latter mounted on the platform,
at tbc conclusion of the proceedings, to
shake hands with, or even embrace him ; his
report was received with tumultuous braTO,
and an unanimous vote of thanks passed to
him (as he well deserved) for his Indomit
able acd undaunted ical, energy and per
servcrancc. I cannot enter minutely into
the uumcrous statements of detail and
figures. Suffice it to say that tho total sum
raited by the company for the purposes of
the canal up to the cud of April last appears
to have been just short of three hundred and
fifty millions, acd the sum expended up to
the tame period a little under two hundred
and ninety millions. Besides the amount In
hand, the company has been authorized to
raise by the emission of bonds the further
amount neeessary to complete the work.
But the most Interestlntt part of the report
was the almost unanimous testimony which
M. de Lcsseps was cow enabled to read to
his audience as being borne to the feasibility,
rrocress acd certain comDlctccess of his
great enterprise by all visitor, acd more es
pecially by those very English visitors who
came most prepossessed; ana prejudiced
against It. The letter and testimony of the
Duke, of St. Albans are not perhaps worth a
great deal In such a matter; but the testi
mony of practical men like Mr. Smith, of
Goslorth, and Mr. Lobnltz, or Glasgow, is
la the highest degree valuable, given too, aa
it is In both Instances, in a sense directly la
contradiction with their previous opinions
and convictions before they had visited the
works. The latter gentleman, especially,
says that before dolor so, he believed the
company to bo engaged In a "foolish and un
profitable untertaklcg;" but on bis return
he hastened to lay before a meeting of the
chief engineers and shipbuilders of the Clyde
his convictioa of how completely he bad
been mistaken, and how entirely ho bad
changed his views on the subject. Amidst
immense cbcerinr, M. de Lesseps announc
ed, with perfect confidence, thu inauguration
and opening of the canal lor this 1st October
next year. Mr. Aspinwall was present at
the meeting, and remitted to M. de Lcsseps
a note, whicb the letter read, on the Panama
Railroad, stating, among other things, that
the actual expenditures on mat lice wmcn
had been estimated at $10,000,000, had risen
