Feud. Itf". Hctcbisox,

How Ion g is the community to suffer
under the management of the Board of
Health!" The editor or the Adtertiser
asks this question in his paper of last Sat-
nrday, and to satisfy hU cariosity, we will
inform him, " as long- as the Sovereign of
this country, in whom the appointment is
vested by the laws, and the People axe
satisfied with the manner in which its da
ties are performed." We use the word
"People," advisedly, although we are well
aware that the editors of the Adcertiser,
and -the clique which follow them, are in
the habit of arrogating this title to them
selves, bat we venture to say, that they
hare no claim to such an appellation, and
Jhat the real people, the Public, the native
community of this country, for whom so
rnoeh pretended philanthropy has been ex
hibited, are not dusatXified with the action
of the Board, bat the contrary. The small
meetings at K&waiabao school-house show
ed this painly enonsh. The call was ad
dressed to citizens generally, bat more par
ticularly -True Hawaiian s." The gentle
man at present in charge of the AdcertUer,
played a distinguished part in the affair,
jet, we all know it to have been a most
miserable failure, to ranch so, in fact, that
be did aot attend the second meeting, call
ed, to consider the answer of His Majesty
to tie petitioa for the removal of the gen
tlemen of the Board, of which he was one
of the signers.
We rtoaH Eot have noticed the above
ptfayrsph, bad it not been oar desire to
Bake a few reraarks oa the subject of qaar
astine, which has pbyed so conspieaoas a
part ia the eeleoss of oar coo temporary
fee Ike pawt six sfetis; asd Srst, we wish
to eipJeis what wit" appear dear eaeagfe,
if persons interested would read the first
rule, published in the Gazette Extra, of Jan.
8th, 1B3, wluch reads as follows:
"1. On the arrival of any vessel at any
port cf this lung-lam. from a Prt known to
to be infected with the small-pox, though no
I x of ftuaU-pol mir hire occurred on board
daring the veynge, neithv ssengers .nor
crew thill be allowed t U. i!ei a periJ
f fifteen dT still bre . -ed from the
: time of her sailing."
r From'thill'itls onite evident that the
; Board had no intention of quarantining a
vision her arriTal at this port, under the
icondiUoos set forth that is to say.haY.D?
! r it - Tr... rvtc-

under supervision for the period of time
which has been considered the limit of de
' Telopment of the poison of small-pox.
j Xo doubt, it is a disagreeable thine, to
Ibe detailed a prisoner, so to speak; bat
J the public health must have precedence
a Other considerations. U will,
Passenger," to this effect: 'If the Board of
Health, of the Port of Honolulu, think
that they have really quarantined th Ida
ho, we Torsive them," are not pertinent
the Board never having bad the most dis
tant idea of so doing. -Is it tho desire of
, the Board to destroy the passenger traffic
i of the steamersT" Jifreriier, Feb. C.J
I Well, no; it does not desire to do o. but (
i we believe such to have been the desire of
1 the writer here quoted, and some of his I
friends; wo may say more they desired J
j to destroy the steamer traffic altogether.
) The petition of the committee, appoint
j ed at the first meeting at Eawaiahao. to
j the Kinsr.says: "The recent action of the
! Board of Health, in permitting the entry,
j into this port, of the steamer Idaho, on
j Monday last, the 21st inst, with an un
I doubted case of small-pox on board." etc,
j etc- were " proceedings on the part of the
j Board of Health, calculated seriously to
(endanger the health of Your Majesty's
j subjects." Adtertiser, Jan. 2. What
would have been the condition of the pas
senger traffic or any other traffic, carried
on by those ves.-ls. had the wishes of that
meeting been carried out by the Board ?
j Clearly, the result would have been a dis
j astrous loss to both owners and shippers
(of freight by her. Xow, we .say. the
motives which actuated the movers in
this matter, was not a regard for the health
of the People, bat hostility to the steam
ers themselves, on account of the selection
of the Agents, by the Company in San
Francisco, and we think we are justified
in saying this, by the remark in the Adcer
tiser of Jan. 9th; "Bat the Board of
Health must satisfy the Pablic and so sac
rifice tlx1 steerage passengers on the altar
of Quarantine; Captain Floyd, saying to
them in excuse, that the "strong sailing
packet interest" on shore demanded that
something should be done. Really, the
Board felt tbat public opinion demanded
more care than had been taken, and that
some show of caution must be kept np."
We say that bo such expression was ever
used by any one. Mr. Rockwell writing
and evidently using the above passage,
says in a long letter1 or the 16th inst in
the Adcertiser, of tbat date: - The Cap
tain said to a steerage passenger "that he
had been all day trying to effect the remo-
val of the Quarantine, but that the sailing
; interest,' working against that of the
j steamer, was too strong for it," We have
I the aathoritv of Captain Floyd for deny-
! ing the above assertions, bat their publics-
tion shows the aainitu of the party from j
j whom they emanated.
I There have been so many falsehoods
! published on the subject, that we murht
take np several columns in mere denial,
not to say refutation. We propo:e how
ever to point oat two for which not the
slightest foandition exist. "Dr. Hatch
ison states that the Qaarantine was chief
ly on account of the Chinese on board."
See Mr. Rockwell's letter, Adcertiser,
Jan. 16, and again, see Adcertiser, Janu
ary 30th, in a minor Editorial, "Dr. Hut
chison, President of the Board of Health
and Dr. Buffalo, when the case of a nat
ive of Guam, a resident of Moanalua. who
bad called on Dr. McEibbin Jan., com
plaining of pains in the back and head, al
ternating with chills and fever, wu3 first
presented to them, declared to be Vario
loid." Xow, cn the authority of Dr. natch- j
ison, we assert, that he never has given oc
casion, in the smallest degree, for either
of the two misstatements.
But it appears in reviewing this matter.
that if a man is confined, then a wrong
has been done ; if one is allowed to go at
large, then a wrong has been done ; if pas
sengers are required to stay on board the
ship, so that they may be under supervisi
on, in case that symptoms of disease should
develope themselves, a great wrong has
been done to them and to their families ;
and if they are allowed to come on shore
a vast injury is done to the public. Real
ly this is too puerile for comment, and
possibly we owe an apology to our readers
for noticing it to day, and we must hence
forward dismiss it, not deeming it neces
sary to load these columns any more with
OmHESU. On the outside oi tie-cay's
Issue will be found a well digested article cm I
the subject of this disease, which has ia
modern times bees designated as Diptbe
ria," by most of the pbysldaua of the dvi
lized world. A local paper of this city, bow

showing an increase of $P6,14TJJ1 in our Do
mestic Exports; of $02,400.52 in Foreign Ex
ports, aod a total Increase of Exports of
213,553.76, although the estimated amount
furnished as supplies to vessels is smaller
than last year, owing to a less number of
vessels visttlns our ports this year.
Table No. 4 shows that twenty-one mer
chant vessels less than last year visited our
ports, and tbat there were ninety less visits
Tabic No 5. shows an Increase over last

all the shipments from Bond, with the tran
shipments from veesel to veseel. The actual

Table No. 11 is a list of tbe different na

during the year.
Table No. 13 shows an increase of 15
children arrived, and a decrease of S de

are somewhat lees than for list year, still, in
view ot our domestic exports, so tnucn in
creased, I think It a source of gratification
that onr homu business Is steadily Increasing.
I would call your Excellency's attention
to the fact that our home ncct of vessels Is on
the Increase. Then.' are at present, registered
at this Office, sixty voscls, viz. : 17 merchant
vessels, or0,5GDtou's; baling vessels, of
2,570 tons; and 37 toasting vessels, of 1,634
tons, representing a total or 9,703 tons.
There have been registers granted to one
merchant vessel, liur whalers and eight
coasters during the year. The losses have
been, one whaler and three coasting vessels.
I have taken some pains to be able to show
your Excellency tfce amount of money our
coasters disburse per annum. There are 21S
men employed on board of tbem, and a total
sum of 4S,S24 Is pild yearly for wages: to
masters, S10.2S0; .to mates and seamen,
$33,544, besides wlat Is disbursed for stores,
sails, rigging and repairs. 1 think that the
coasting fleet is doing a good deal for ns,

Mn. Editor: I very seldom write for the
newspapers, because 1 am constitutionally
1 Indolent, for one and the principal reason ;
! and secondly, it don't pay at least tbe ed-
jitor don't. But I am a great stickler for the
proper use of words in speaking or writing
j the English language. For instance, when I
see a newspaper that undertakes to set every
body right, and correct tbeir blander of
speilingund grammar, committing such a sol
ecism as appeared in last Saturday' Thun
derer, over the signature of "Humanity"
accusing tbe venerable Friend of " indorsing
the emigration scbemea of tbe present Ad
ministration," I am a roused from my nor
mat condition of Indolence, and. appeal at
once to my old friend, Noah Webster. At
first, I am somewhat alarmed at tbe idea that
"the present Administration" are going to
deport ns all from these pleasant shores to
somewhere else, but Noah quiets my fears.
He tell me that Emigration mean "Be
moral of inhabitants from one country or
state lo another, forthepniposeofresldence,
fcc," but Immigration is "tbe passlng-or re
moving into a country forthe purpose of per
manent residence." Then, thought I, we
are tale yet, for "the present Administra
tion"' has no Board of Emigration, though
It has one of Immigration. And 10 1 relapse
quietly back Into my usual state of quietude.
Editor of tht Hawaiian GatetUJkar Sir:
