Home Office, Is or. 10, 1SC8.
Mrl G. von Gossnitz has token charge of
tho Government Press during the absence
of Dr. J. Mott Smith, and all business
communications are thereby requested to
be sent to him.
It majr appear to Our readers useless to
reiterate denials and proofs, when denials
and proofs are met by a reiteration of the
same charges and statements, quite unsup
ported. We stated, in our last issue, that
tho Proclamation against privatcering-
wbich was intended to prevent these
Islands from becoming a rendezvous and
depot for rebel privateers, and their spoils,
and which Proclamation most certainly
had the effect for which it was intended
" was approved, before its publication, by
tbe United States Representatives here,
and was regarded, and has continued to be
regarded, as a friendly act, by tho Govern
ment at "Washington, and has received
their commendation;" and it is replied that
"we think tho writer mistaken, andoro
confident that Dr. Jlclirydo remonstrated
verbally, with Mr. Wyllie, against its
issuance, though he acknowledged its re
ceipt, and forwarded it to Washington."
This, and other assertions, will show to
our friends, at home and abroad, with
what spirit charges and statements are
made and reiterated in the face of the most
positive proof and tbe most patent facts.
The Proclamation, against the issuance
of which this writer is "confident that Dr.
HcBryde remonstrated verbally with Mr.
"Wyllie," was issued on the2Crnor august,
18C1 : Dr. McBryde presented his cre
dentials to His -Majesty, on the 19th op
joke, 18G3 1 Whence the confidence arises
of Mr. McBryde's remonstrance, tho pub
lic must judge.
In pur issues of July 10th and 17th,
1867 immediately after tho 4th of July
oration of the Rev. Eli Corwin, wo pub
lished tho whole facts.
On the 24th of Jnly, 1861, Mr. Dryer-
then Minister-Resident of the United
States to this Government, addressed a
letter to Mr. Wyllie, tho Minister for For
eign Affairs, inclosing copies of the Pro
clamations of President Lincoln dated
April 19th and 27th, 1861, announcing the
blockade, and likewise a copy of Mr. Sew-
ard'a dispatch of April 20th, " instructing
bini (Mr. Dryer,) to be vigilant in prevent
ing aggressions upon American commerce
by vessels or persons acting under tho
pretended authority of Rebel Govern
ment." Mr. Dryer further proceeds : " To
this end I would respectfully call your at
tention to tho fact that the American
clipper ship Bald Eagle, bound from San
Francisco to China, with a large amount
of treasure on board, having been chased,
on her passage to this group, by a snspi
cious vessel, and to officially inquire of
you what course His Hawaiian Majesty's
Government intends to pursue with regard
to vessels of this description found fre
quenting the King's waters, or toucliing
for supplies or repairs at any of theporis
in His Majesty's dominions."
Mr. Wyllie replied to Mr. Dryer fully,
and most acceptably, on the the 27th. In
his letter,' Mr. Wyllie set forth all that
this Government was able to do. So far
from doing anything In "unseemly haste,"
tho Minister for Foreign Affairs consulted
with the Judges fit the Supreme Court
one of whom, at least, sympathized as
Koch as the Reverend Orator, or any one
else, with tho cause of the Federal Gov
ernment in subduing the rebellion and
who'XBeat certainly is quite 03 good a
lawyer as any who have commented on the
necessity, or want of necessity, of the
Proclamation. The Judges replied to Mr.
"Wyllie xn tne 26th of July the day be
fore his first reply to Mr. Dryer. Mr.
Wyllie then proceeded to consult with
Mr. Dryer, with the view of drawing up a
proclamation that would be agreeable and
acceptable to the United States Govern
ment, and that would be 33 efficient as
possible "for protecting property from the
attacks of privateers." Several projects of
a proclamation were drawn and submitted
to Mr. Dryer, and disc vl with him,
Finally, that which wa published was
pronounced satisfactory, and was therefore
published on the 26th of August nearly
two years before the arrival of Dr. Mc
Bryde in this country, as we have stated
before long before that gentleman over
dreamed that he would represent tho
United States near this or any other Gov
ernment, and whilst be was in blissful ig
norance, probably, of the very existence
of the " influential gentleman" who was
to be his friend and adviser in tbe arduous
duties which the Doctor's destiny held in
reserve for him, in this country.
The Proclamation, when it arrived at
Washington, was considered, and has a!
ways since ben considered, as a friendly
act, promptly and opportunely done. The
words " either party," were used necessa
rily, or else wo would have become allies
of the Federal Government, and exposed
the ships which frequented our harbors to
bostHe incursions. But the whole Pro
clamation was directed against privateer
ing, and intended for the protection of
commerce. Tbcro was but one party to
the contest which had -any commerce, to
wit, the citizens of the Loyal States ; and
there was but one likely to employ priva
teers, and that was the Rebel States.
Tho Proclamation, then, of Kamcha-
meha IY. was made after thorough delib
eration, wholly in the interests of the
United States, to prevent these Islands
from becoming "a depot for tho spoils or
prisoners of rebel privateers," and was ef
fectual for this object, during the war and
Dr. McBryde had no more to do with it
than any other citizen of Oregon tho
" confidence. " of anybody to the contrary,
The object of tho "influential" author
of "Memoranda of observations and
opinions," in making his mirepresenta-
tions, is, confessedly, to excite hostility in
tho minds of those having influence at
Washington, in order to .injure this com
munity, and he takes the means of so
doing, which he deems most suitable for
effecting that object without caring, ap
parently, whether those means are right
eons or not. Tho misrepresentations of
others seeking their living among us, can
have no other effect and one may well be
excused, if he should say that they had
no other object.
Mr. Editor: Tbe sapient editor of tbe
Advertiser, in defending and excusing tbe
writer of the "Washington Letter," seems
inclined to shield him under bis supposed
right as a private correspondent. Tbe editor
even goes to far as to Intimate that tbe an
trior's rights arc so sacred in this respect that,
"owing to the fact that the "letter" was pub
lished In the Bulletin without bis consent and
against his express remonstrance, it should
not be criticised by those, even, who are
most affected by its misrepresentations.
Now, in the opinion of many, the writer of
this letter neither stands in tbe position of a
correspondent of a public journal who
chooses to withhold name, nor in that of a
person who writes a private lcttcrto an indl
vidual. Asaircncral principle nobody will
deny tho right of an anonymous correspond
ent of a public journal to retain his Imperson-
ality,nor the sacred nature of a private corres
pondence between Individuals. Although
those responsible for both species of corres
pondence have frequently been severely pun
ished (and that In a no less free country than
the United States), when by misrepresenta
tion and falsehood others have been Injured
cither In character or material interests by
them. Let us now Inquire as to what the
writer of the "memoranda" attempted to ac
complish, and for what purpose ; also,
whether the relation In which, ho stood to
wards his fellow-residents, the people and
government or this Kingdom at the time of
writing his " memoranda," was not of such,
a nature as rendered his act one of such gross
treachery as to deserve, that his name, posi
tion and calling In this community should be
ascertained and published, so that every per
son in this Kingdom might know for a certain
ty who this ambitious Sntilguer Is, who to
gain his end resorts to the most malicious
The end sought to be accomplished by this
'influential" gentleman was the defeat of
the ratification of the Reciprocity Treaty
by the United States Senate; partly for
the purpose of committing a malicious
Injury upon a people among whom he had
lived, and by whom he had been supported,
for ten years; partly out of mere spite to a
Government which had protected, but never
harmed or interfered with him, and partly to
gratify an ambition which is made too palpa
bly manifest in bis production to require
The relation in which he stood towards
the people and Government of this kingdom
be he whom he may must have been
.somewhat as follows : It Is known by every
one here, that no person has resided in this
country for the past ten years and held an
"influential" position, except as one of
those who have been actively engaged in
some commercial, agricultural or profes
sional pursuit, which must necessarily have
brought him in contact with every class of
our citizens, and identified him more or less
with their interests and tbe interests of tbe
country. He owed to his constituents, for
their confidence and support, that he should
not commit secretly any act which would in
jure them. He owed to the Government, for
its protection, that he should not misrepre
sent it In order that he might make enemies
to it those -who were its friends. He owed
it to the character of respectability which he
probably bore, that he should not violate the
Ightb commandment. lie knew that the
people of this .Kingdom had been desirous of
Reciprocity Treaty with the United States,
for a longer period than ten years, and he
ought to know that tbe Government, had
labored faithfully to procure such a treaty.
Bat, with such knowledge, being filled with
venomous animosity against this Govern
ment, which his vanity and egotism made
him believe hehod Infused Into many others,
be violated the confidence of those among
whom he had lived by teercQy conspiring to
defeat a measure which they anxiously
sought. -He did not do it openly and man
fully, that his falsehoods and misrepresenta
tions might be openly confuted, but he did it
secretly and with malice, as men enter our
houses at night forplunder. He did not dedi
cate his observations and opinions to a pri
vate individual, but to public men who bad
it In tbeir hands to defeat or adopt the meas
ure he sought to oppose, and to whom, no
doubt, his name had been heralded as one
whose opinions of affairs could be depended
The Adeertiter Is no doubt correct when it
states that the author of this precious docu
mcnt did not intend it for publication, and
that it was "published against the remon
strance of the author." No evil-doer ever
intends that bis evil deeds shall be made pub
lic; and it frequently happens that when
they are found out and made public, be re
grets that he has committed them not be
cause of their wickedness, but of the just
punishment he is liable to receive for their
committal. Why then should we not ferret
out the name of this individual, in order that
if he still remains among us, he may feel the
public condemnation and scorn he 'so richly
deserves ; or if, apprehensive that his " inllu
ential" career here would suddenly cease
vterc his evil machinations to come to light
(as they have), he has eorurht a new field of
adventure, that we may wam others of his
mischievous tendencies I T.
The now famous letter of the ten years
resident, has been so appropriately dealt with
In the last two numbers of the Gazette,
that further comments may be deemed by
many somewhat superfluous, yet, Inasmuch
as It seems to me, that some of its most
startling propositions have not been made
the subject of comment, either editorially
or by your correspondents, I ask permission
very humbly to notice them.
The acquisition of the Islands (by the Unl
ted States) at the earliest possible moment,
being assumed as a stragctic necessity, is
made the text of his discourse, in which he
passes In review the various modes by which
that great desideratum might be supposed to
be attainable. He says,
7. An unembarrassed and honest expression of
popular preie reacca oj voie jur annexation to any
loreign power u cicarij impossioie.
That matter being thus conclusively disposed
of, he then refers to acquisition by purchase,
8. Annexation by purchase daring the life-time of
tne present lung is utterly impossible.
Both of these honorable, straight-forward
alternatives being admitted out of the ques
tion, and tbe Islands, in a commercial point
of view, not being worth stealing, (a mode of
acquisition which this bigb-soulcd patriot
seems to look upon as quite Justifiable if it
would pay) the writer by no means abandons
the field in despair, having still another mode
of accomplishing his virtuous purpose, in
which he seems to have adopted to tho fullest
extent the Jesuitical proverb, that " the end
justifies the means," and which he develops
as follows :
2. Jly bonejt conviction Is that should the treaty
pass. It will be. Eir more difficult and tar more'costlj
to obtain the Islands at the end of soven years. For
the Inlands so enriched could better afford to remain
Does not this mean unmistakcably, that
in despite of tbe palpable fact that, in his
opinion, the ratification of the Reciprocity
Treaty would unquestionably " so enrich "
these Islands that tbe permanent retention of
their italus among the family of nations as an
independent sovereignty would be secured
yet, that a consummation so devoutly to be
wished for by all who have the wcll-beiog
and advancement of the countayat heart,
ought to be frustrated aud defeated, "right
or wrong," by fair means or foul, lest its suc
cess should Imperil or jeopardize the eventual
attainment of his political panacea, for tbe
accomplishment of which he does not hesi
tate to recommend that the community of
which ho was for ten years a member should
be ttarved, literally and not metaphysically,
at the same time bullied by a "viijorous armed
diplomacy looking to the acquisition of the
Islands at the earliest possible moment" into
a reluctant but inevitable acquiescence !
Any comment ou such cool and heartless
atrocity as this would only weaken its Inher
ent enormity, and I venture to assert that
history, both ancient and modern, will be
searched In vaiu for a parallel case of cold
blooded ingratitude towards a community In
"which he must have had at least some agree
able- and friendly relations, and in which he
held a prominent position, "enjoyingthe con
fidence of the American Commissioners and
Minister Resident," and in which exalted po
sition he may perhaps havo been looked up
to as an advocate and expounder, if not an
examplcr, of tho Christian virtues which he
now manifests such readiness practically to
Ignore. Perhaps he may also haveTbccn the
pampered recipient of those whose vital in
tcrcsts he now so coolly avows an unblush
ing readiness to sacrifice at the shrine of his
political Idol. Scrutator.

San Fhascisco, Oct 23, 1863.
The Great Shake.
The 21st of October, 1803, will long be re
membered by onr people as an earthquake
day, which casta entirely Into tbe shade the
earthquake of October 8th, 1803. At five
minutes of 8 A. jr., the shock commenced and
lasted at least SO seconds. Its effects in dif
ferent parts of the State have been fearful.
In tho city four were killed by falling build
ings, aud many wounded, and at Hayward's,
on the opposite side of the bay, one roan, the
Deputy County Clerk, was buried in the ruins
of tbe Court House. The destruction to
property in the city has been variously esti
mated at from fCOO.000 to $500,000, but it is
Impossible to approximate to the real dam
age. The shock was felt most severely on
what is called "made land," and It is said
that no properly constructed buildings havo
been damaged, and that those on solid ground
show no signs of the earthquake. Brick
buildings are shaky and not much sought after
just now, while wooden houses are in de
mand. A general system of propping up is
taking place throughout tbe city, and some
of the streets are declared dangerous, and
passage through them prevented. Two se
vere shocks of earthquake were felt on tbe
21st, two during the night, and many lighter
ones have occurred since, so frightening our
people that buildings are now emptied in a
very short space of time. Business was gen
erally suspended on the 21st, trade being
completely demoralized. Tbe city put on a
holiday appearance, vbile crowds wandered
about toJook at tbe rains, and men and w
men congratulated eath other on not being
among the list of the killed.
Tbe most exaggerated telegrams were sent
from this city to other parts. One to Nevada,
that half the city was in ruins, and tho ques
tion came from the Atlantic side, "Is It S00O
or 80,000 killed by the earthquake" Tho
Chamber of Commerce hastened to telegraph
the true facts of the case to the large commer
cial centres of the world, placing the whole
amount of damages at $300,000, a figure far
below tbe real damage.
It would be Impossible to enumerate the
buildings which have been rendered useless
by the late earthquake There are very few
in tbe lower part of tbe city that have not
sustained more or less damage. Very many
will have to be Ion down and rebuilt, in
cluding many In the process of construction.
Tbe City Hall has been so badly cracked
and injured that it is considered dangerous,
and the various courts and offices have been
removed to different parts of the city, tho
former to tbe large wooden building erected
by tne Mechanics' Institute for the late Ex
The large Custom House building, which
was built on made ground, and rests on piles,
and which was badly damaged by the earth
quake of 1805 and repaired at an expense ex
ceeding $10,090, was so injured by the late
shake that it is said the whole structure will
have to be torn down. Tho Custom House
desks have been removed tothencwHay
wari building on California street, and every
thing there appears "in a heap." The Post
Office, on the first floor of tbe Custom Houso
bulldmg, has been examined and declared
safe, although tbe employees and tho public
generally kept at a safe distance for a day or
two after tho shake. The Bank of California
was badly although not permanently injured,
and the fancy work about it has been re
Some buildings have been most strangely
abustd by tbe shake, and damaged by the
sinking of (be ground under them, which In
some places hits sunk ten or twelve inches,
while one 'building on, California street has
sunk down 6omo twelve feet or more.
, In the Interior.
tho earthquake was felt to a greater or less
extent, but it seemed to culminate in its
greatest fury at San Lcandro and Hayward's,
In the latter place nearly every building was
more or less Injured, while a strongly-built
one-story brick grain warehouse was com
plctcly destroyed, not one brick was left upon
another. At Oakland the shock was said to
havo been :a little harder than in the city;
brick buildings In that place being thrown
down, and chimneys generally thrown to the
which this great earthquake should teach us
Is an important one. It Is foolish for people
to become so frightened as to leave for other
parts of tbe world where dangers of death
are more frequent than in our State. Storms,
thunder and lightning, and the extremes of
heat and cold on tbe Atlantic seaboard cause
more deaths than have ever taken place here
from earthquakes, or are likely to tako place
for several generations.
The earthquake lesson should bo heeded by
our architects and builders. San Francisco
has too great a future before It to risk It on
such useless ornaments as projecting cor
niccs, such absurdities as fire walls and lofty
chimneys, or even fourth and fifth stories.
The architecture of our city should all be
changed. We should have an original archi
tecture of onr own. "The Egyptians built to
suit tbeir religion and their country; the
Greeks did the same. The Byzantine style
was the creation of men laboring for tbe same
end as the Greek architects, but under differ
ent circumstances. The various' styles of
Gothic were produced to withstand tbe rigors
of tbe winters ol northern Europe, and to
satisfy the growing ceremonials of the
Church, the Increasing luxury of the monas
tic system and of baronial life." ' What we
want is a style especially for California
Withdrawal of the Opposition Pan
Satisfactory arrangements having been
made with Mr. Webb, the owner of the op
position lino of steamers to Panama, by tbe
P. M. 8. B. Co., that line has been withdrawn
and the rates of freight and passage have
gone up to their former figures, while tbe
passages of the steamers are noticed to be
several days longer than during the opposl
eitlon. The withdrawal of this opposition
and the enhancement of tbe rates of passage
will seriously affect migration hither. Dur
ing the continuance of the opposition over
30,000 people have besn added to tbe popula
tion of the State. The rates ol passage will
affect travel for only a short period, as the
Pacific Railroad Company will be running
through trains from New York to this place
by next July.
The small pox, which has been raging In
Ibis city during the past few months, Is rap
Idly dying out. It bag carried off many of
out people, and frightened tbe living into
being more careful about vaccination in tbe
future The disease, which was gaining great
headway, has of late been tlamped out by
universal irec vaccination.
A sad case of drowning took place a few
days since in the southern part of the city.
A Mrs. Sherwood walked Into a well with
her babe in her arms, as she was returning
to her house just at nightfall, and both were
drowned without any cry being heard to at
tract the attention of the husband and father,
who was In the house within a few feet of
- Yesterday morning a -young marrlcu
ried couple, on a wedding tour to this State
from New Zealand, were found dead in their
bed at the Brooklyn Hotel. They bad re
tired to bed as usual the previous evening,
and had either blown the gas light out, or
when the gas was turned off had partially
turned It on again in taking the hand from
the burner. At 20 minutes to 13 the door
was burst open, when it was found that tbe
gas had been escaping all night, and the win
dow was closed. The lady, Mrs. Bowan
was dead, and her husband lay in a state of
insensibility, his life being despaired of.
Tbey were strangers, and the body of Mrs. B.
was taken to tbe dead house.
During tbe last few weeks our city has
been in a state of great political excitement
an excitement which now agitates the whole
country from Maine to Florida, and from
New York to California. Tho city has been
ablaze with bonfires, sky-rockets, bursting
bombs and all kinds of fireworks, nearly
every night during the past few weeks. Wo
shall have six nights more of torch-llgbt pro
cessions, yelling crowds, mass meetings, bon
fires, eloquence and betting, and on the 3d
of November next the two great parties will
march to the polls, each one confident that
they are fighting, working and voting for the
salvation of tbe Republic, when voting for
their great leaders, cither Grant and Colfax,
or Seymour and Blair. There are a great
many loyal men In our midst ; the most loyal
I have noticed arc those wbo have staked the
most money on the election of Grant and
Colfax. In one bank it Is said that $10,000
are on deposit awaiting the result of the
election. The news from the East, viz, the Re
publican victories In the Pennsylvania, Indl
ana, and Ohio State elections, have inspired
the Republican party with confidence that
the Presidential contest will be decided fur
Grant and Colfax.
Tbe great torch-light procession of the
campaign took placo last night The turn
out was a complete success. No less than
12,000 men were in line, while the streets
and buildings on the line of march were
crowded with 75,000 Union sympathizers,
mostly ladles. The city was magnificently
illuminated in every part of It, while bonfires
blazed on the seven bills. The Democratic
party will make an effort to surpass the great
demonstration of last night on Saturday even
