AVncs the Reciprocity Treaty first en
gaged public attention, and it was deter
mined to send an Envoy to Vasatogton,
the sugar interest was very much de
pressed, and agricultural prospects were
gloomy. Business of ail kinds was dull
andatfnost certain disaster seemed to be
the coming fate of all, whose capital and
skill were invested in the productive en
terprises or the country. The Govern
ment in taking measures to negotiates
treaty, did bat give shape and form to
what was the manifest desire of everybody,
asd they undertook to lead the way to
better times and a more assured prosperity.
"We aH, at that time, wanted a commercial
treaty, which should insure to us a steedy
market and lair prices for our sugar, rice,
coffee and other products, however, after
ward opinions began to vary, when tbe
discussion arose as to what we might ob
tain and what we must abandon in the
It is certain that no great objections j
were raised to the consequences of tbe j
Treaty upon our internal afiairs- There j
was no unwiHingnes3 on the part of the
taj-royers to meet the estimated decien-
cies by an increased direct taxation.
By the last steamer, after ail absence of
nearly eighteen months, our Envoy has
returned home without being able to bring
with him the ratification of the Treaty
by the United States Senate. Could it
have been brought forward earlier in the
fessioa, hardly a doubt exists thai it would
have been' passed through triumphantly.
Brought "op in the closing Hays there was
not time for a full debate, asd from force

the prospect of its ultimate ratification.

its benefits will be confined to the Hawai
ian people, and that the Reciprocity, as
some have sneerincly said, is entirely on
"one side. Neither is that the view which"
prevails among those in tleTQnitedStates,
who have had this matter nader considera
tion. The objections raised there ere
each as may be racdified, or entirely re
moved by the progress of events, the
changes incident to pabitc Rfe- and more
especially by the adoption of a policy of
reciprocity by the Senate which now seeas
to be probable. The obstacles therefore
are not insuperable, the delay of the rati
Scation is not fatal.
It becomes an important question
whether this matter shaM ba farther urged
by us, seeing that it has already been
clearly and persistently placed before the
Senate ; whether the public sentiment here,
is sufficiently urgent to obtain this ratifi
cation, to demand farther expense and
effert on the part of this Government to
secure that object
Almost the whole of our population'
have been ardent supporters and advocates
of this Treaty, aad are still desirous, we
believe, that it shall be poshed forward by
an Hawaiian Envoy at Washington, who
may be at hand to impart infoAnatioa, allay
prejudice, combat objections, and in every
reasonable and faithful way represent our
interests in that place. Scch an officer
seems to be caHed for, not only by the.
position of the Treaty, bat the growing
intimate rahtfDQS, commercial and politi
cal, that we must hereafter bold with the
United States, ocr nearest neighbors.
At this time we may weU look back and
review the opposition to this measure
here. The Wly of the few, irbo have pre
dicated financial rain and distress upon
the reject ioof the Treaty, is most man
ifest. Such persoos, while predicting
soch a result, may almost be accused of
desiring it- They have shown no sympa
thy with the effort to improve the condi
tion aad comfort of our laboring classes,
no regard for the risks and dangers in
which oor capitalists were involved; no
desire to rpbold this people and to in
crease ocr material prosperity and happi
ness. Defeated expectations, unsatisfied
ambitions, or selfish hopes, have been the
basis of their opposition.
Some have insisted that thev were favor-
able to it, whife their every act has tended-
to disparage and defeat its ratification,

These for instance have put weapons in
the haads of our opponents, by tradacing

A most terrible scries of earthquake baa

In Peru, a distance of more than 1,3W miles.

that the figures are over-stated which r'
the cumber or lire lost at Ri,fAXL Tbe erst
cartbqokke was felt at Callao, at 5 r. M., on
the ISUi of August. There was a contlnui-
or tbem up to the 16th, which was tbe
t fatal dav In Ecuador. An earthquake
- ' . . .. ,
wave happened on tbe cuast-llne south of
CaUao, doiiu; great damurc; cutatusuao,
and other places north, doing little barm.
The duration of some of the shocks Is stated
to have been from six to cfcrht minutes, and
the disastrous ones to have bad a tortuous
motion. The regnkr horizontal wave was
not so fearful. The Kau earthquake of April
2d, on these Islands, was not over two mln
utes is duration, but the motion was a twist-
lag one, and the sea-wave it caused was
qatte as high as that In South America. Had
our coast been as densely populated as theirs,
our record of the loss of life would have been
equally fearful. Arequlpa, one of the ruined
cities, was CO or 79 miles inland, and the
places that scnercd most In Ecuador were
firtrom the coast. The tidal waves at these
Islands on the Htfi, 15th and 16th of August,
were doubtless caused by these earthquakes.

Tasca, August 16th. A fearful calamity
occurred on tbe 13th inst. For some days

and there were frequent short shocks which
began to cause alarm. Tbe grand oscillation
began at 5 o'clock and lasted seven or eight
minutes. We never witnessed an event so
barrible, or a disaster so great. The earth
quakes of 1S31 and lSSi were, lt is said,
nothing in comparison to this. All tbe buil

up to which time the earthquakes continued
at intervals of a few Lours.
' The San Francisco 7tnv makes the follow
ing comments upon the tidal wave. The
only fault in its reasoning Is the lack of cor
rect data as to tbe time tbe motion was ob
served at these islands.
The sea was rst observed In motion at the
wharves at S a. u. of Aug. 14th, although It
was reported, we know not how correctly,
that .some native fishermen observed the mo
tion sometime bet een midnight of the 13th
and the next morning. The time therefore
must have been from thirteen to eighteen
hours. The rise or the sea was alike in all
parts of tbe islands, about three feet and a
hair, and not ten and twelve feet on Maniand
Hawaii as at first reported. We have heard
the theory here, that the islands and not the
sea was in motion.
' "Another point or much interest Is the
question or the flow of the tidal wave. We
have heard that such a phenomenon occur
red at the Sandwich hlsnds, and neknuw
that it occurred upon this coast, almost sim
ultancously with the earthquake in South
America. Bat are w e not jumping to a con-

' aDd5-,h" th.i ,f efro.m which a wave,
PJ1, onth America would have
come. But there are circumstances in the
true, wonld show tbe extent of the subter
ranean or submarine disturbances to have
been much rrcaler tban has hitherto been
supposed. The first and most Important cir-1
oi Distance to be noted, is that which puzzled
our Honolulu correspondent. He says: "A.
couple of transit instruments here in town
trfre V'""1 &ui tf Itrd, axd tM in. the tame
any perceived earthquake." Now the cause
which throws a transit instrument ont of
level mnst be a cause different from that
which merely throws a tidal wave npou the
coast; that is to say, it mutt have its origin
In tbe place upon which tbe Instrument Is
stationed. It is scarcely possible to account
for this simultaneous disturbance or tbe two
instruments except upon the theory that In
stead oi toe sea nsinz ana tailing aronna tne
islands, the islands themselves rose and feU
in the sea. Startling as this hypothesis may
appear, it is borne ont in a very remarkable
manner by the facts a3 reported. One ob
server writes that "tbe islands seemed to rise
and fall, and not tbe sea." There appears to
have been no trure anywhere. The pheno
mena consisted in a receding and a flowing
insxalnof tbe sea. Tbe sea flowed out rapid
ly and returned, sometimes gradually and
sometimes with rapidity. But there is no
mention or any advancing wave anywhere.
Just such an' effect as is described would
have been produced by the gentle upheaval
and subsidence or the land. No such effect
would be produced by a rapid, advancing
tidal-wave. Nor can we, on any other theory
account for tbe deviation In the delicately
sensitive transit Instruments."
The Origix or Mxs. Like tbe Madagas
car myth of tbe origin of woman, the Ha
waiians have one regarding the origin of
man. It Is as follows:
A dispute arose between Kane, tbe mighty
and merciful god, and Kanaloa, tbe evil one.
Eanaloa portrayed his own image on the
sand, but did not succeed in brlnginglt to life.
Kane, perceiving the failure, made a figure
on the sand according to bis own Image, and
called out with a voice of thunder: "E biki
an cola, e olal E hiki au e ola, eola!! E
biki au e ola, e ola I! ! " (When I am come, or
am present, come to life, come to life ! ) and
the figure arose from the sand in the shape
or a man. The shadow or tbe newly created
man being observed on tbe sand, Kane
thought he could not live without it. He
therefore shouted in the same manner, " e
ola! e ola! I" to the shadow, and heboid,
there stood np a beautiful woman.
Eanaloav filled with rage, tried to induce
them to forsake Kane, and become his.
He succeeded, and they went to Knafoa.
Kane, seeing that they bad left him, declared
that be would not give them children in
tbeir own shape and form until they made
amends. The name of the man was Hulibo
nca, (In search of Land ;) the woman's name
