Vbea w wtis Phillips, vio Has oadeo,
CMtag the process of Urberim, propoed
that we sbooH embark ia a canoe and take
a sail dovn the river to his &ihtog town."
So wo went oa board a Urge doable canoe,
sad booties the imoeatt three-cornered
cat siil, were slowb waited down the rirer.
Ihjrinj all'QSs y Ike caaatbeTofgiM
were soia on tiroagh the town, bat Phil
lips took no part in then, notwithstanding
he had so oftea brassed to me of his fond,
ness for the taste of hamaa Besh. He de
voted himself eatirvjy to the mate and his
party, of which I was one) and seemed to
be very solicitous to amose and oak us
comfortable. "Whether this was rora want
of isdinatioa to join the horrioio tataroa
Ua of his coanlrymen, or cat of compli
ment to cs, I cannot say, bnt he treated
our party very kindly.
As we slowly sailed down the river on
oar fishing excorsion, or rather onr excur
sion to the fishing town, the natives on
the canoe, numbering aboat fifty, kept op
ac oastant, slow, monotonous kind of sing-
Ug in concert, the refrain of which was
j accompanied with clipping of the hands,
f The voices were powerfol, and the different
parts hiss, tenor and alto were well sos-
tained, while tha time was perfect. Phil
lips told me that the subject of the song
was himself his birth, infancy and child
hood somewhat tike the Hawaiian inoas.
Aboat five o'clock in the afternoon, we
arrived at the fishing town, which was a
collection of bouses on the bank of the
river, and which was destitute cf the usual
mangrove boshes. Immediately on oar
arrival, the drum a hollow log of a spe
cies of wood something like the Hawaiian
koa ia appearance was beat as ashmal to
the people to assemble in the "rara," or
square. In a short time, some two or three
hundred men had assembled, and then un
der the direction of the chief of the town,
proceeded to "go a-Sshing." The place
was situated within the ebb and flood of
the tide, which was just aboat tarnisg to
flood. A weir was stretched across the
river from bank to bank, held in position
by stakes, aad then, with seins and nets,
the whole male population of the village
plunged into the water, and an exciting
scene ensued diving, splashing, shooting,
asd laughing. In half an hoar's time, they
had laid on the bank before ns,a large pile
offish, of all sizes, shapes and colors, from
the great -saaka, three or four feet long,
aad six inches through, down to smelts
and minnows. The results of the Esbing
were bid before Phillips, who sat cross-
legged on a mat. By his direction, the
fish were divided out into separate portions.
each of the villagers receiving a share.
Among the spoils were two fine turtle, aad
these were cooked for oar sapper in the
native style, in an underground oven, while
several of the finest and fattest of tbe fish
were broiled on the coals. I may observe,
in this connection, that I never saw fish
cooked by those people in the style of the
HawaEass wrapped op in ti leaves they
were always either boiled or broiled. White
sapper was preparing, Phillips gave cs
some specimens of ha skill as a marks
man. Be had a very fine silver-mounted-rifle,
which had beea made a present to
him by our captain on a previous voyage,
which he always carried with him when
travelling, and of which ha was very proud.
After firing several shots at a tree, at tbe
distance of fifty yards, hitting tbe mark
each time with wonderful accuracy, be
smiled complacently al oar expressions of
admiration, asd said, "I do better than
that." Then ordering one of his attend

Tm following Uaa extract from a letter.
addrcMed to tbe public paper by Str. A. H.
Machooochte, the clergyman against whom
Judgment was reodered lately, oo the pdat
of what are denominated RltualUtlc otaerr
aoees. In his church.
"And this tirlcgs me to the second thing
io oc aouc i tuppoje cvtrr one nae more
or less bet ii thlaKlns over the tjucitloo of
EiUhlithmentL III ma; Jadn from tbe
receptioa which was given to a few words of
mine, at the meeting ofTorsday, In Frec
mon' Tavern, the conviction U calnlcs
croncd that the time baa come Tor tbe Chnrca
to claim deliverance trom the yoke or State
control. I do not believe St to be a qaetUoa
belonting to anj political school, for I con
tantlr Cnd mrtelt at one on this point with,
men of views dtseriug aa. widely as possible
bom one another and myself on political
qaesUons. Even It we look at th matter
from a Slate point of view, the principle for
which I contend lies deeper than any differ
ences of modern politics ; for, thus regarded,
an equitable union of Chorea and State la
only possible when the two terms are coex
tensive. In any other case, one oi two dlSl
collies will arise either the Infiaence of
the Church In the aSalrs of Statu will be a
harden to thoe subjects of tha State who da
not belong to her pale, or else (which la the
more probable alternative) the yoke of the
Slate will press heavily upon tbe conscience
or tbe Church. The English Establishment
dates from a time when the two were co-extensive,
and the continuance cf this condi
tion was assumed at the Reformation, bat
has not been realised, nor will any one dare
to predict that It la likel; to be rcallxed. So
that even from this point o( view t&e union
of Chnreh and State la an anachronism, asd
onht to be swept away. Bnt It Is In the In
terest of religion solely, not In that of poli
tics, tilt the question has to be viewed by as.
What tight has the Spoote of Christ to ally
herself with tbe powers Of the world ! Sure
ly to do so U to commit that terrible spirit
ual adultery against which her Lord has so
oftea warned her. If the State be nnbellir-
' Ing and I suppose no one wishes to Impose
upon toe nuing ooaies m me .nsrusn state
(except upon the Crown Itself) the same of
Christian the very Idea Is an offence to tha
dullest spiritual instinct; and yet If we take
the opposite hjpothesli, we shall, I think,
find it, worse. A Christian State Is a child of
the Chorea. It Is of the Church. In such a
State that each individual Is 'bczottea again
of God In Christ Jesus;' it is by her teat
each Is fed; by her prayer and blessing that
all State seta teek for help from Cod ; by her
anointing that the sovereign is set apart for
the hlzb functions of Government f Can we,
then, ttefend adultery between a mother and
her son? Such I believe to be, and always
have been, tbe nature of onion between
Church and State. Doubtless, the Stile owes
to the Church the affectionate care and sop
port that a dutiful son can give to bis mother;
but this Is not the theory of Establishment.
Tbe Jewish Chnreh began to fall from God,
and oltlmatelj sank Into Idolatry, from the
time that it became as Establishment In the
reign of Seal. The rehrn of Constantlne was
the beginning of the decline of Christianity
In spiritual things quits as ranch as it was
the beginning of its rise la temporal gran
deur. 'or do I think that the State has suf
fered less than the Chnreh from the alliance.
Bat I mcst cot prolong my letter by the dis
cussion of this question. Let as, then, as
citizens as well as Churchmen, move every
power to obtain a dissolution cf this ungodly
alliance. Why should not petitions to Par
liament asd memorials to Convocation be
ready by the commencement of the session f
Then bj tbe time Parliament meets again,
after Easter, other memoriabt might be read;,
and thus the question be thoroughly Tcntl
lated. I feel that It Is Impossible to urge
this matter too strongly. The limits of a
letter in ;onr columns prevent me from doing
more than barely indicate crudely some of
thetboujrbu which have long been In ray
own mind. I trust other hand more able
than mine will take up the subject, and show
lnrtbtr grounds for the action which sees
so desirable. Once free from State control,
we shall begin. I trust, to feel as a body, and
not merely a individuals, that we belong to
a kingdom which "Is not of this world."
Oar bishops will know that their power b
that of the servants of Christ, not of Lmda
of Parliament; we of the clergy shall be free
from tbe temptations to -worfiHy gala aaa
ambition with which an EstbUs4wst sar-
rounds men; and our people win receive or
reiect ns for Christ's cake, not as satalsSesa
appointed by the State.
