It mast appear, to all oar readers, a very
great cesnaeedattoo, that suit one, to
whose conduct any measure has been com

the services of reliable and competent men,
whether clergymen or otfcers, and as sach,

in so doing,-is a creditable fact This
thing has not been done in a corner, but
every step in it hu3 been known to nil men,

"At least, one clergyman was asked to pro

Smith, M. D., of Koloa, Kauai, one known
of all men, as beinjr a good man, of liberal
and just views, and the following letter was
received from him in reply:

The Board were nothing abashed by this
letter, and it wonid be most difficult for
any one to see why they should bo. They
had applied ton well-known philanthropist,
an active and energetic friend of this peo
ple, a medical gentleman of much experi
ence, an old missionary, and had received
from him the assurance, that he felt an in
terest in the enterprise, and wished it emi
nent success, though he could not go himself.
They next applied to Mr. IV. Chamberlain,
who expressed himself as favorable to the
expedition for the introduction of Polyne
sians, but was learlul that his lnlrmity in
hearing would be a draw-back to the suc
cess of the enterprise. The Board thought
that the difficulties arising from this source
could be overcome, as they had great reli
ance in his integrity, kindness and human
ity. After much consideration, he wrote
the following letter:
Honolulu, Dec 2d, 1868
Ills Ex. C C. Haeeis,
Sear Sir: Owing to the very earnest desire
of one of the planters, that I would give the
proposal of the Board of Immigration, at first
made to me, further consideration, I have
called on you, the last few days, for informa
tion. I have expressed my willingness to go as
an agent, provided the arrangements, condi
tions and terms are such as I could .feel
willing to accept.
I have given the subject much thought,
and have concluded, that unless I could sail
with some captain with whom I was person
ally well acquainted, that I can not consent
If Capt. Gelette can be induced to go, and
would be accepted by the agents of the ves
sel and by the Board of Immigration, the re

could be arranged to mutual satisfaction.
With my present disability In hearing, I
decline to go without an approved acquain
tance and friend being master of the vessel,
and as my acquaintance with captains is
quite limited, this matter must turn with the
obtaining or the contrary of the services of
The Board did not know what party Mr.
Chamberlain belonged to. They were not
even conscious that there was any party,
missionary or otherwise, as opposed to
them. But they knew Mr. Chamberlain
to be a man of good principles, and
good sound sense, always on the side
of law and order. They were not
" abashed," bat immediately, the President
of the Board saw Captain Gelette, who re
plied, that he did not care to go to sea
again, alleging some reasons, of a charac
ter private to himself, and which he regard
ed as sufficient. By referring to Mr. Cham
berlain's letter, it will be seen, that he said
if Captain Gelette would not go, ho could
not. This ended the matter with him. It
will be seen, that he was not strangely
dropped; indeed, was not dropped at all;
that his request was entirely complied
with, and he furnishes ns to-day, for publi
cation, the following communication, on
Mb. Editor An Impression seems to have
been conveyed, in the leading article of the
C. AdvertUer of Feb. 20th, relative to the
expedition of the Board of Immigration, that
there was a want of fairness in the conduct
of the Board toward a proposed agent and
the Captain alluded to.
In justice to the Board, the persons to
whom allusion was so made, desire to say
that they were both courteously conferred
with, and In the matters that transpired, the
action of the Board with them was fair and
honorable. W. Cilamaerlain.
So it doe3 not appear that Mr. C. "had
any want of confidence as to the intentions
of the Board," and. any thought that he
might 'be made the tool ofdesigning men,"
and it is difficult to see how any one ven
tures the assertion, that he doubtless did
experience any such feelings, since, what
ever might be the intentions of the Board
they must have been communicated to him

had undertaken the voyage. Mr.' Cham

expressed any such idea, nor could the

other than to carry out this expressed will

manner, and in the manner that would

that they have heretofore done so, and are

not be some inducement for them, when

it more nearly concerns us, to-day, that
Mr. and Mrs. Parker feel a little more
strength left in them, to-labor for the ben

willingness to exercise that strength.

upon themselves the care of an establish

no " let-up," no vacation, and over which
the watchfulness must be unintermitted.

right people in the right place. They are
most enthusiastic in their devotion to this

young, and excellent results may be confi

We are told, that those-who have hitherto
undertaken to eatablhh later-Island (team
communication, have suffered aerlous.loM,
and that, however much good may be promo
ted by auch communication, we should not
expect Its re-establishment at the expense of
private Individuals or companies. Of coarse,
people cannot be expected to Invest their cap-
tal, In an enterprise which experience has
proven not to be a paying one, although In
the present case, the Inducements offered by
Government, would seem to place a company,
who would undertake to re-establish intcr-
island communication, under ranch more fa-
vorable auspices than any company has here
tofore been placed. There are those experi
enced in such matters, who are sanguine in
the belief, that, with the atd offered by the
Government, a company, with Sufficient cap
ital to put the Kilauea in proper condition to
resume her labors, would run no risk of see
ing Its stock depredate, but would, on the
contrary, under proper management, pay rea
sonable dividends. Be this as It may, one
thing Is certain: the public requirements
demand, that by some means, Inter-Island
steam communication should be re-established,
and there are no small nnmber of those
interested, who are strongly in favor of the
Government, in default of private enterprise,
taking the matter in hand and putting the
Kilauea at her old work again. The action
taken in the purchase of the steamer, thus
rescuing her from the wrecker's axe, Is a
causa of general congratulation ; for howev
er Interesting and valuable her dissection
might have been to the cause of science, It
would have been most damaging, If not fatal.
to the cause of Inter-Island steam navigation.
To have permitted It, would have been a base
act of public ingratitude towards an old,
though far from " used up," public servant,
such as are only supposed to be committed
by republics. Tours, etc,

Mr. Editor. It Is gratifying to a large
portion of, not only "this community," but
to the people of the islands at large, that the
question of steam communication, between
the Islands, Is being agitated in a manner
which promises, that at no distant day, we
shall sec our old Wend the Kilauea resuming
her wonted trips "to windward."
The public has enjoyed the privileges of
luter-lslandsteam communication, so long to
its great ad vantage and convenience, that It is
merely stating a fact, which every one ac
knowledges, to say, that it Is so great a con
venience, that it is almost a necessity, not
only to the present requirements, but to the
future prosperity of the country. The large?
agricultural interests of the country, which
have been principally developed during the
time la which we have been Svoredby steam
communication, requires regular and certain
communication with the metropolis, such as
cannot be furnished by sailing vessels, and
can only be attained by steam. It requires
no argument to prove, that so far as travel is
concerned, steam Is far preferable to sails la
passing through our channels; that while ne
cessity only, can, as a general thing. Impel

Commenting on the President's Messare.

marks, rcferrimr to the Importance ofthe

The Messatrc of President Johnson docs

it advisable to call attention to that portion
devoted to the relations between the United
States and the Sandwich Islands, or Hawaii,
because on that point, the President, who is
about quitting the White House, In place of
expressing merely nis private views, proves
himself faithful to the traditions of the Wash
ington Cabinet; therefore, that is a policy
tne inumpn oi wnicii ougm 10 oe preventea
by all of the European maritime powers.
The Hawaiian Islands, so distant from ail
uontinents, ana tannest irom Europe, nave,
till now. been unimportant. The progress
of commerce, and the gigantic works exc-
cutea in an porta or me worm, on tne con
trary, are about to turn their geographical
position, wnicn iormeny conaemnea mem
to an eternal isolation, greatly to tneiraa-vantace.
The United States are not satisfied bv the
daily Increasing proportions of their relations
wuu uuiua ana japan, out wisn lurtuer to
partially annul the part of the profit that
Western Europe calculated upon by the cut
ting of the Isthmus of Suez, and to render
our means of communication with the far
East easier by way of America than by the
Isthmus of Suez. In rapidity of trajet, they
vie with the speed of the English malls. By
going from England to New York, from New
York to 8an Francisco by the Pacific Kail
road, a creat portion of which has been
opened to traffic, and from San Francisco to
Yokohama, the journey Is performed almost
as quickly as by Marseilles, Malta and Haez.
Europe is quite right In not abandoning
the monopoly ofthe commerce ofthe Pacific
to America. France will soon have a line of
steamers between Panama and Japan, and a
Hue is snoken of tbat will run between Ta
hiti and San Francisco. England also intends
shortly inaugurating a regular service be
tween Australia and the port of San Fran
cisco. Ail these vessels, for the same motive,
must station at Honolulu. Hence the reason
will be seen why England and France must
endeavor to prevent such an important point
from filling into the hands of a rival power.
We must insist that all vessels touching at
the Sandwich Islands, under whatever flag
they may sail, shall enjoy the ssme ptivilegcs.

Austbalus Stexmship Lixe. Information
has been received in this city to the effect that
the English government subsidy to the Pana
ma andcw Zealand bteamsnip company has
actually been withdrawn. This apparently
decides the suspension or the Australian and
Panama steam service, and opens a clear
field for American enterprise. Congress would
no donbt readily consent to assist the estab
lishment or a mail ste&raimp una between
San Francisco, Sydnsy, Melbourne and Auefc

tain, however, that a paying traffic would
soon spring np between this part, and the
great Australasian ports above named, Irre

between Australia and California-is already
large representing a value of perhaps $2,060,

ness. Thirty vessels sailed from this city to
Australian ports proper during 1848, aggregat
ing 12,362 tons ; and 42 vessels arrived fr
